Template:CGReno Before starting out with any flags or titles or anything, ask yourself why do you want to make a micronation? Could it be that you just want to have some fun, or do you want to operate a political science simulation? Perhaps you want to run a fantasy empire to your heart's extent?

Why should I?

It's generally good to cite a reason to start your micronation. It makes it more legitimate as well as stands out from the large crowd of other nations. Furthermore, your reason can help you drive the direction of your micronation and can be cited in your declaration of independence.

For example, If I made a micronation for a political science simulation, I would focus on the legal parts of the nation like governmental powers or the constitution. Likewise, if I wanted to start an empire, I would travel around the World (of course when the coronavirus is over) and claiming land everywhere I go. A justification of your micronation's existence can help you focus on what parts as opposed to others.


These are a couple micronations' reasons for existing:

Principality of Hutt River

The Principality was founded in 1969 by the late Leonard George Casley (Prince Leonard I). It was founded due to a dispute within the Australian government in regard to wheat quotas. [1]

Republic of Molossia

The Republic of Molossia was founded in 1977 by Kevin Baugh and James Spielman as The Grand Republic of Vuldstein. This was a childhood project between both members. [2]

Kingdom of Ikonia

The nation was founded due to the success of Molossia. [3]

Republic of Yu-Xia

Yu-Xia was founded on 3 February 2020 due to the United States's flawed governmental system and constitution.

State of Vishwamitra

Vishwamitra was founded on 15 April 2007 as a gathering of friends. [4]


Completion of this assignment will be required to attain a barnstar and certificate. Feel free to complete it if you are not interested in attaining it, but if you are not interested in it this is optional.

Create a reason for why you want to start your own micronation.
