The World's Self- Proclaimed 'MICRONATIONS'; NO international recognition

The World's Self- Proclaimed 'MICRONATIONS'; NO international recognition

WHAT IS A MICRONATION?

micronations


A Micronation is an entity that claims to be an independent state but whose sovereignty is not recognized by the international community.

They are different from Microstates like the Vatican City, as the population of  microstates is internationally recognized. 

Micronations are created for a variety of reasons, and they tend to be very different among each other and have no clear sense of unity.

HOW DOES ONE CREATE A MICRONATION? 


non-virtual micronations, with territorial claims, are built out of a gripe with local authorities.
These generally follow a secession model and take inspiration from the Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States, a piece of international law that sets down the norms for nations to declare their own statehood. 

If their claim goes unanswered by receiving any kind of formal rejection then it's assumed by default that you've succeeded in seceding.

THE PRINCIPALITY OF SEALAND


The Bates family, in 1967, claimed as 0.025 km Square WW2 sea-fort, as their own sovereign state.

The claim was confirmed by the UK government as it lies outside their territorial waters.

They have -

- own constitution 
- flag 
- national anthem
- coat of arms
 currency (the Sealand dollar) and passport; they also survived a 'German Invasion' led by Alexander Achenbach, Bate's friend who hired mercenaries to capture the region.

THE REPUBLIC OF MOLOSSIA


Conceived by Kevin Baugh in 1977, as part of school project, and established in 1999, Molossia consists soley of Baugh's one-acre home in Nevada.

Baugh describe it as a 'dictatorial banana-republic' with martial law in place 'due to unrest and ever- present foreign menace'; its currency is pegged to pillsbury cookie dough.

Molossia, while itself unrecognized, has numerous treties with other micronations, and claims to be at war with East Germany, not acknowledging that it no longer exists.

THE PRINCIPALITY OF HUTT RIVER


Prince Leonard founded the principality of Hutt River in Western Australia in  1970 as part of an agricultural protest over government quotes on wheat farmers.

It has 30 full-time residents, with almost 1,80,000 citizen overseas; however, it has been ordered to hand over nearly AUS$3 mn in unpaid taxes, as still part of Australia.

AKHZIVLAND


Akhzivland may be the only country in the Middle East that has never engaged in conflict and it's ruled by an Iranian-born Jew named Eli Avivi.

Avivi set up camp in 1952 and proclaimed it the independent state of Akhzivland, after the government intervened in 1970 to destroy his illegal structures, and he won the ensuing court case.

The place now is a sort of resort promoted by Israel, where people can pay for a room; it's legal status remain in question.

GRAND DUCHY OF FLANDRENSIS


Founded in 2008, Flandresis claims five antarctic islands (siple island, Maher Island, Pranke Island and Carney island) - based on its own interpretation of the antarctic Treaty of 1959.

It has its own ID cards, currency, newspaper. constitution and national anthem, and boasts more than 100 citizens from 21 countries.

It stand as an area to raise awareness about environment issues today and does not seek any recognition from the international community.

HOW DO MICRONATIONS CONTINUE TO EXIST


Most micronations are unrecognized by formal goverments and tend to be too small and 'insignificant' to pose any real threat.

This, and loopholes in law that allow these areas to exist in some form, help micronations existence.

Essentially, as long as these regions don't break countries law and are limited to communities such as Talossa, with Taco Bell as their national food, government don't believe much interference is needed.
