Attendees at MicroCon 2017

A micronational summit (also micronational convention or micro summit) is a formal gathering of micronationalists. These summits provide a place for micronationalists to meet, exchange ideas, sign treaties, and engage in other diplomatic relations. The majority of summits were held in Europe and North America. The largest micronational convention is MicroCon, which has been hosted biennially in odd years since 2015.

Attendance at micronational summits has been growing, with the number of summits, total attendance of all summits and maximum size of a single summit all growing over the period 2011–present.

Most micronationalists who attend summits sign treaties with other micronations. Other common activities include various discussions and presentations. Each MicroCon allows a presentation secession, where various micronationalists hold presentations on various aspects of micronationalism. Other times when a summit is hosted by an intermicronational organisation, the member states of that organisation may have discussions relating to it's business, such as the Grand Unified Micronational which had a in-person Quorum meeting. Some other activities may also include going out to eat at a local restaurant or a pub.

MicroCon is a convention of micronationalist government representatives, held biennially in odd years since 2015. MicroCon was created by the government of Molossia as a venue for delegates of micronations around the world "to share their ideas, dreams and worlds with each other." The first MicroCon was hosted by the Republic of Molossia. It took place on 11 April 2015 at the Anaheim Central Library, Anaheim, California.

Among the attendees were King Christopher of Vikesland, Grand Duke Travis of Westarctica, Queen Carolyn of Ladonia and President Kevin Baugh of Molossia. The Kingdom of Shiloh sent a large delegation.

Other attendees included Vladimir Valentinovich Veselovsky of the Provisional Territories of the Free Autocratic Republic of Totalitarianism, who was criticized for his approach to micronationalism.

Organisation MicroCon

LIR Union, abbreviation for Los Bay Petros, Indokistan and Raflesinesia Union (Indonesian: Uni Los Bay Petros, Indokistan, dan Raflesinesia), commonly stylized as LIRUnion or LIRunion, was a customs union comprising three neighboring Indonesian micronations, Indokistan, Los Bay Petros, and Raflesinesia. The union had its main headquarters in Bayrschtein, Los Bay Petros with obligations for each members to establish its own local office for the union.

It was officially established on August 2012 when all founding members signed the official treaty on the creation of the LIR Union. The organisation had turned inactive since February 2013, when Raflesinesia reunified with Indokistan. A special status treaty between Indokistan and Los Bay Petros also once proposed by former Raflesinesian head of state Rayhan Haikal as substitute of the organisation, but failed to gain any respond.

Molossia, officially the Republic of Molossia, is a North American micronation landlocked within the city of Dayton, Nevada, and with an enclave in San Bernardino County, Southern California. As one of the oldest fundamental micronations, it succeeded the Grand Republic of Vuldstein, founded by James Spielman and Kevin Baugh, now serving as its current leader since the transition from a monarchy to a republic in September 1999.

Vuldstein, founded in May 1977 and located in Portland, Oregon, was active for a short period which lasted until the end of the year, when King James moved to another city without renouncing to his throne, leading the Grand Republic to a state of inactivity. Baugh took control of the nation for the following 21 years, undergoing different transitions to several nomadic kingdoms, then a People's Democratic Republic in 1998 until its present state.

Molossia refers to itself as a "sovereign state" since 1977 and has been in a state of war with East Germany since 1983. Appearing on the "Lonely Planet Guide to Home-Made Nations", Molossia is known outside micronationalism for the movie Kickassia, produced by That Guy with the Glasses, and receives more than 50 visitors each year.
