The Empire of Atlantium calls itself the world’s “foremost aspirant extraterritorial, transnational, intercultural, panarchist state.” It is one of the many micronations that have neither been recognized by Australia, not the United Nations. The guide on micronations, describes Atlantium as "a refreshing antidote to the reactionary self-aggrandisement of so many micronations", and "an extremely sophisticated nation-state experiment, as well as an entirely serious claimant to legitimate statehood". You can also be a citizen of this country by registering with them online!

As opposed to the usual 60 minutes, the DST here is set forward and backward by only 30 minutes in accordance with the New South Wales' time. Apart from this, the place is also known for a weird "100 years' war against rats" and the "Ball's pyramid" which has the rarest insect on the planet!
