YAMO, an acronym for Yet Another Micronational Organisation, is a derogatory epithet directed towards intermicronational organizations which are regarded as useless or otherwise undesirable. First attested before 1998, the acronym draws on the fact that the majority of intermicronational organizations generally exist for only a short period of time and have little to no notable accomplishments during their history.

The YAMO Federation was founded in 2019 at that year's MicroCon convention with the stated goal to "try to find out why almost all micronational organisations fail or dissolve quickly."
