Ah, but perhaps that's a localized European phenomenon, as North American micronationalists tend to be shorter than average, thus accounting for their inherent (ineptly, yet ironically named) Napoleon complexes ;)

Actually Napoleon was taller than the average French person at the time

I'd believe that regardless of height, the micronational realm is attracting somewhat introvert and often quite nerdy people, and fairly often young men. If you find immense satisfaction in, and more than willingly spend time updating, tweaking and generally putting things in a correct order, you are hanging around somewhere in the autism spectrum. This doesn't mean that you have any or several known syndromes or disorders usually connected to this.

There are lots of very interesting and extremely misleading facts and statistics easily extractable from surveys. Tall, white, young men who like computers, have at least one hobby that's considered a bit weird in the general population, and so on. We are micronationalists, and we should be proud to be freaks and geeks.

I don't identify as a "freak." I'm not a freak. I am a tall, white, young man, but I'm also athletic and play multiple sports. People can have diverse interests without being strange, can't they?

I wouldn't take it too personally. To be "strange" just means you're different, and I would rather be different than be from a cookie cutter, that would be boring.

I know, hence the reason I said that "Napoleon complex" was ineptly named :P

Upon conducting a survey, I found that at least one of our citizens is actually mildly autistic. Very interesting stuff :D

Then, my good Sir, I think you're a freak among the rest of us :) Let's not ever again use Hollywood high school standards to divide people.
