About The Show
Micro Nation is the story of the forgotten nation of Pullamawang, and its young citizen Emma who desperately wants to leave.
When Australia federated in 1901, the island of Pullamawang forgot to mail in their paperwork, and they remained a separate country. Over the years, they’ve created their own customs and rules of government without anybody outside the town really noticing.
Now, one hundred years later at the 2012 annual National Day, a remarkable discovery occurs which will change everything - diamonds are found, sending egos, aspirations, and greed skyrocketing.
Suddenly, a new flag depicting the national food (a fancy surf & turf) can be commissioned, and the new anthem is being written by Placido Domingo, and performed by Tom Jones.
It all culminates in an explosion of nationalistic fervour as Pullamawang declares war on Australia or do they?
To escape the eccentricities of Pullamawang, Emma has to outlast the stupidity that has swept through her home town without letting her exasperation ruin her plans. How long the paranoia and silliness will continue is a mystery, but democratic committees in Pullamawang can drag things out for a long, long time.
