Swindon is a micronation that claim its territory of the Swindon Borough in southern England. The Micronation is a devolved government within the United Kingdom founded on June 10th 2010 with 209,700 claimed citizens. Although, there are only 2 citizens who have officially got citizenship.

The original Saxon settlement of Swindon sat in a defensible position atop a limestone hill. It is referred to in the Domesday Book as Suindune, believed to be derived from the Anglo-Saxon words "swine" and "dun" meaning "pig hill" or possibly Sweyn's hill, where Sweyn is a personal name.

Swindon was a small market town, mainly for barter trade, until roughly 1848. This original market area is on top of the hill in central Swindon, now known as Old Town.

The Industrial Revolution was responsible for an acceleration of Swindon's growth. It started with the construction of the Wilts and Berks Canal in 1810 and the North Wilts Canal in 1819. The canals brought trade to the area and Swindon's population started to grow.


Kingdom of Swindon consists of 3 administrative regions: Swindon, Highworth and Liddington. This is a list of settlements within the micronation:
