* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_of_Molossia The Republic of Molossia]] is technically located on US soil (all 0.002 square miles) and not officially recognized as an independent nation, but their president, Kevin Baugh, doesn't let that get in the way of flying the Molossian flag, issue their own currency, sing their own anthem ("Fair Molossia is our Home") and maintain a proportionately very strong space program. It is officially a constitutional presidential republic, but run like a very small military dictatorship. During mid-May 2010, the country was invaded and conquered by [[WebVideo/{{Kickassia}} a rag-tag band of Internet celebrities]], but the foreign leadership quickly fractured due to internal power struggles, and President Baugh was able to use the distraction to oust the invaders and reclaim the country with very few casualties.

** Similarly, Griffonstone is a run-down shantytown that is supposedly the only notable griffon settlement. Much of its decline is due to sheer apathy that started over a lost artifact generations ago and has been growing since. According to Twilight Sparkle, it was a grand sight once.
** From the comics, there's the Kingdom of Dimondia, home of one of the more civilized Diamond Dog packs (most other dogs live underground). It's predictably just a castle and a town, and presided over by a unicorn queen who's technically held prisoner and really, really wants to get out.

** The Principality of Pontinha may be the smallest nation in the world, pending UN analysis. It is a total of 178m[[superscript:2]], and consists in its entirety of a single tower fort and a small terrace built on an islet just off the town of Funchal on the Portuguese island of Madeira. The islet was sold by Portuguese king Dom Carlos I in 1903 to a British family, and sold again in 2000 to Renato Barros, a local art teacher. In 2007 the Portuguese government confirmed the legitimacy of the original 1903 sale; Renato claimed Pontinha's independence from Portugal and named himself Prince Renato II. In his own words, ''"It means I can do what I want with it Ė I could start a restaurant, or a cinema, but nobody thought that someone would want to start a country. So thatís what I did... I am the police, the gardener, everything. I am whatever I want to be Ė thatís the dream, isnít it? If I decide I want to have a national song, I can choose it, and I can change it any time. The same with my flag Ė it could be blue today, red tomorrow."'' The nation's four citizens are the Prince, his wife, and his two children, though only the Prince lives in the fort. Pontinha's official currency is UsefulNotes/{{Bitcoin}}.

** A particularly notable example is the Principality of Sealand, a disused sea fort off the coast of Suffolk, England, seized in 1967 by pirate radio broadcaster Paddy Roy Bates as a base for his radio station. When broadcasting from marine structures such as Bates's was made illegal that same year, Bates declared the fort an independent nation, and named it Sealand. Sealand has its own flag, anthem, currency and passports, and in 1978 was even invaded by a German businessman, with mercenaries, claiming to be the Prime Minister of Sealand and the rightful ruling authority. Although Sealand has no legal recognition, Bates claimed ''de facto'' recognition by the British government after they admitted the fort was outside national territorial waters and they could not charge him for firearms offences while there. In 1987 UK territorial waters expanded from 3 to 12 nautical miles and now include Sealand. Bates died in 2012, but passed the title 'Prince of Sealand' onto his son Michael, who lives on the British mainland.
