A micronation is a small organization that mimics or simulates a country. The term is no indication of the size of the entity's territorial claim, which can vary from e.g. a playground or room to an entire universe, whereas other micronations do not claim any land at all or present themselves as virtual.
While some micronations have serious intentions, and a few have managed a degree of independence or are anomalies resulting from worldly affairs, most exist as an educational project, fantasy, game, hobby, or similar undertaking.
