The following is a list of micronations that expressed public reactions to the Catalonian crisis (2017), either support for the separatists and the ensuing self-declared Catalan Republic, or the unionists and the Spanish government.
Support for Spain, unionists
- Democratic Christian Republic of Melite - The D.C.R. declared support for the Spanish Crown, as Catalonia makes an integral part of Spain.

- Semi-independent territories of Cilsur - Although this position was decided in 2023, Cilsur is an anti-Catalan independence nation and all political positions are against it. It is considered a completely political artificial independence movement, since the Catalans are and have always been Spanish and their language is taught in schools, and it is outrageous to see that nations defend the Catalans by having a total government, that their language is taught in schools and that the pro-independence parties do not have minimal sanctions. Cilsur is in favor of keeping things as they are, against the referendum, recognized as illegal and in favor of the fact that according to article 5 of the Spanish constitution all Spaniards should vote for the independence of Catalonia.
