A macronation is what micronationalists call recognised states.

However, this impression is not entirely correct or comprehensive. Macronations in of themselves are just medium- to large-sized nations, irrespective of whether they are actual recognised states or not. Under this perspective then, macronations can also be non-states, and are in fact Fourth World nations.

Micronations, on the other hand, can be Fifth and Sixth World nations, and seventh world nations are considered to be RPGs or pure simulations.
