The League of Secessionist States was founded on the 26th of
November, 1980 by the Kingdom of Talossa, the Kingdom of Thord
and the Imperial Jahn Empire, as an organization to unite micronations.
Micronations, also known as ephemeral states, imaginary states, model nations,
counter-countries and unrecognized states, are a growing phenomenon.
They range from the inventions of single individuals to (virtually) functioning
societies with populations in the thousands, often spread across 'national' boundaries.
What they have in common is the voluntary nature of citizenship, which is
unrecognized by the established (Macro-)nations. They have often been described as
the future of nationhood; communities of like minded individuals who do not rely on an
accident of birth or geography to define themselves as compatriots.
Currently, the League of Secessionist States is an organization of 36 such
micronations; it exists to promote intermicronational communication and partnership, and
serves to act as a supramicronational, impartial body where such a need for one
exists. As of February, 2002, Mr. Fred Church from the Democracy of
Cherusken-Isonomia is serving as the Secretary-General.
