- When and where will you share this adventure?
- How will you break into small groups to form your micronations?
- How much time will you have to create your micronation?
- What will you create for your micronation? Rules? Customs? A national flag?
- In small groups, come up with at least four distinct characteristics for your micronation: a national flag (or national colours), a taboo (something that is frowned upon in your country), a greeting and an attitude towards one of the other nations.
- Draw your flag and practise your characteristics.
- If you have time, you can think of other customs for your nation: maybe you wear your neckers backwards, or always wear your shoes on the wrong feet.
- Create some laws for your nation. Why are these laws important?
- What do you know now that you did not know before?
- What were the other nations like? How were they different from your nation? How were they similar?
- Why is it important to respect differences?
- Have you ever been in a situation where someone didn’t respect you?
- How can you build on this experience?

Keep it Simple
- Rather than making a micronation, create a set of rules for your Pack or Troop. This can even be used as the basis for your Section’s Code of Conduct.
Take it Further
- Learn about some real international customs – what are some different customs and traditions from around the world?
