Flag of Atlantim
Atlantium contends that it is a primarily non-territorial sovereign state. Its territorial claims are presently limited to a 61 m² apartment, located several kilometres from the centre of Sydney's main business district. Atlantium is considered by some people to be a micronation. Atlantium's web-site currently refers to itself using several different formulations, including the assertions that it is a "self-declared State" and an "aspirant microstate".
No established nation has yet recognised Atlantium's sovereignty and it has no reciprocal diplomatic relations, but instead appoints "unaccredited diplomatic representatives" to serve its interests and support its citizens in various towns, states/provinces, nation-states and regions of the world.
Atlantium accepts applications for citizenship, but such citizenship does not supersede previously existing citizenships. Atlantians contend that they are all dual-citizens, and that Atlantium actively encourages its citizens to participate in the political processes of their resident countries.
Critics point out that Atlantium appears to be using the words "citizenship" and "diplomatic" idiosyncratically. Supporters note that Atlantium has made no secret of its attempts at redefining existing paradigms, and claim that this is in fact a fundamental motivation for the Empire's existence.
