Anyone here involved with a Micronation?

For those unfamiliar with the term, Wiki has a good treatment here describing what micronations are.

I’m curious if any posters here are currently or have been involved with any micronations and what your experience with them is or was. To me it seems like play-acting, but with some more fun added to it. Note that I am not knocking the idea; I kind of like it, to tell you the truth; after all, I’m planning on joining Starfleet International if I ever return to the US and retire.

So to my questions!

  1. Which group did you join?
  2. What led you to that group?
  3. Are you still active in the group? Why or why not?
  4. What fun events does the group have for members (“citizens”/“subjects”)?
  5. What charitable events does the group have?

Add other questions as they arise.
