Sana's top five micronations!

When you here the word 'micronation', you immediatley think of small, but perfectly legitimate, countries such as Andorra and the Vatican. This is not about them. This is about those strange, not-quite-real, places born of questionable circumstances- school projects, inside jokes, scams, protests, historical loopholes, or merely wanting to be royalty. So, without further ado, here are my top ten micronations!

5. Republic of Awesome
Lets be honest here, the name speaks for itself. The official law of the republic is "If it's fun, it's legal! Unless it impacts on someone else's ability to do likewise, in which case it's not legal." Part joke and part enviromental protest, it is lead by president CourtneyFan14, an eccentric australian teenager. Fun fact- the national dish is the Banana split.

4. The Aerican Empire
One of the more jokey micronations, but also one of the largest, with over 400 citizens. Aerica (as it is known) claims a square kilometer of land in Australia, a house in Montreal, a colony on Mars, the northern hemisphere of Pluto, and an imaginary planet. Their flag has a smiley face. I'm gonna be honest, I'd like Aerica a lot more if it didn't have a bad case of "trying to hard".

3. Principality of Sealand
AKA the one pictured above. Sealand is maybe most notable for it's strange, half-recognised status- it is well known enough to get mentioned in Axis Powers Hetalia and several newspapers, and claims to be recognised as a sovereign state by Germany and England. It is a sea fort off the coast of Suffolk.

2. Kingdom of Ruritania
As some of you will know, I love the idea of royalty and castles and knights and such, hence I am fond of this central european-themed absolute monarchy micronation. A little bit of research reveals that the name and history are ripped directly from Antony Hope's "The prisoner of Zenda", but for what is essentially a fanfic country, their royal highnesses King Rudolph and Queen Anastasia do a great job.

1. Republic of Molossia
Will say now, I love this primarily for Kickassia. God bless Channel Awesome. Fangirling aside, Molossia could be considered a superpower of the micronational world- quite a feat for an acre of land in Nevada! Ruled by president Kevin Baugh, who says of his nation- "Vote for who you like, it's a free dictatorship!"

Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I am very glad to see such wonderful info being shared freely out there.
