Micronomic started on June 18th, 1996, with a minimalist initial ruleset authored by Jason Reed. Micronomic II started on February 6th, 1997, with the same ruleset. Around May '97, Micronomic II absorbed Micronomic and PNomic, and was renamed Macronomic to reflect the merger.

On April 1st, 1998 (no, really) Macronomic had a coup (made possible by the balance-tipping vote of Ed Graham), leaving myself and Henry Towsner sharing dictatorial authority. Currently we have a three-person Revolutionary Party with veto power over proposals, and a few other assorted perks. See the player info page for the complete history of the membership of the RP.
