Quite a popular topic to discuss on AH.com - usually in a tongue-in-cheek way - and also even a hobby to some AH.commers. Sometimes, micronations are met with derision on the site, other times with praise, and most often, their assessment is somewhere in the middle and fairly neutral.
Arranged in alphabetical order. Click the links in the names of the micronations to see their flag.

Founding date: 25 June 2011
Language: English, high-pitched penguin localisations
Military: According to GA's own account, “I've had to make do with human paramilitary forces and some UAVs. MQ-9, mostly. The bigger penguins have .22LR ultravelocity recoilless rifles strapped to them. The extra fast custom .22LR has extra punching power compared to normal .22LR. Much better than normal .22LR. The guns are open ended while firing, they are electrically fired. You don't want to be hit by it. The guards have AK-74s and PKMs. I've considered a few 20mm and 40mm guns on old BMPs. Maybe some 76mm. 105mm guns will arouse suspicion, and tanks would probably get us invaded.”.
Trivia: In a state of cold war with Amervea. Has claims on “all unnoccupied territory on Antarctica, and a Helium 3-rich stretch of land on the Moon”. On the topic of the economy, GA notes that “Yes, I get alot of money from our oil and mineral exports. Also, we extract industrial-use chemicals from penguin waste, which there is plenty of.”.

Trivia: “The similar design to the US flag represents the close ties that we have historically had with the US. The golden cross represents my nation's Christian heritage (since currently 100% of my population is evangelical) and having purple and white stripes instead of red and white symbolizes the fact that Minarchitopia was created by royal decree (thus the purple) without bloodshed (thus the white). The crown of course represents the supremacy of the Emperor.”
