A micronation is a small incorporated government, with citizenship requirements, laws, a charter, a flag, and possibly a currency, postage, a national language and a diplomatic arm -- but without the necessary acknowledgement of the international community of its existence.

Micronations are generally created for artistic, protest, or self-identification reasons, and exist in a fluidity of reality that may change depending on the needs of those in charge. 

Many micronations exist in a virtual sense, having no sovreign land to call "home";  others exist on disputed or created land, such as Sealand, a successful micronation that exists on an abandoned sea platform; others exist on land claimed from an acknowledged sovreign government on fuzzy or disputable interpretations of existing laws.
