Micronation Myths

Micronations should not be mistaken for countries or territories that are control by guerrillas or anti-government military. Most cybernations have no such military power. None have any effective governing body or people to really govern.

The term “micropatrology” has been coined to define the study of micronations. This term, however, is unrecognized by any formal academic body. It is not considered a proper academic discipline.

Micronations differ from tribes and community associations and the like. Typically the aforementioned do not employ to be sovereign as do cybernations. They also maintain no diplomatic relations with recognized entities. Examples of recognized entities that have no real claim to land or territory but do obtain diplomatic relations with existing nations would be Tibet, Taiwan, Palestine and the UN.

Micronations and Utopia

What would the world be like if everyone could be governed ideally? Would people then need no governing bodies? What if everyone could form their own perfect cybernation?

Micronations may come and go. Their leaders and founders may be overthrown or bought out. Their national anthems and flags might change. The rest of the world will never even know. No. Not until they strike oil or mine gold will they need to worry.
