Have you ever heard of micronations? Micronations are “a small area or political entity that claims national sovereignty, but is not recognized by other sovereign states.”- Oxford Language Dictionary. Or in simpler terms a “country” that is not exactly recognized as an official country by others.

  A popular example of micronations is the Principality of Wy, a claimed micronation in Australia that is located in the Sydney suburb of Mosman, it has not been recognized nationally or locally. The current leader of this country is Paul Delprat.
