      Hay muchas micronaciones y tienen propósitos muy diferentes. Algunas son ejercicios de teoría política o económica, con los que se busca explorar la noción de estado nacional y evaluar sus alternativas; otras, pasatiempos personales, y allí el autor se deleita en crear la simbología de esta patria artificial y en repartir títulos nobiliarios rimbombantes entre sus amigos o familiares; otras son formas de experimentación artística.
