It could be because each micronation origin story is chock full of ingredients ripe for a quirky biopic, but I love learning about micronations. And there appear to be no end to them popping up. In fact, the Internet seems to have given some of them a new lease on life… or sovereignty.
Over on BBC Future, Jessica Mudditt explores the ongoing existence of micronations, with some particularly deep dives into the origins of Atlantium, a micronation smack dab in the island-continent-country that is Australia. They also touch on Ladonia and a few others, which is nice because when was the last big news about Sealand? I’m still holding out for literature-inspired micronations as Terabithia would be just and right to found here in Virginia.
