From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Social Microcosms are miniature spheres of distinctly separate human interaction and behavior within a city, country, or planet. Microcosms are models of miniature ecosystems existing independently within the larger biosphere (usually the Earth). Some factors that define a social microcosm as separate form the whole would be different behaviors in education, science, technology, customs, beliefs, or religions.
