The North Atlantic Federation of Micronations (NAFM) is a supranational union between five micronations who have agreed to work together of peace and prosperity. On 27 June 2009, the Cheslovian Federal government officialy decided that the NAFM had become inactive and "dead".
The NAFM was founded on 9 November 2007 by Kaznia and Fristehen, originaly, it was intended as an exclusive supranational union between Kaznia and Fristehen and was at the time called the Union of Fristehen and Kaznia (UFK). Shortly before the UFK was to be officially established it was decided to allow other nations to join and the name was changed to The North Atlantic Federation of Micronations. The first Chairmanship state of the NAFM was Fristehen and the NAFM capital was located in Knapp, the capital of Fristehen. At the beginning of the year 2008, Fristehen handed Kaznia the Chairmanship status, and the capital was changed to Musorov, the capital of Kaznia. Since the beginning of 2008, the NAFM had accepted two new member nations, The Republic of Gemnoviag and The Principality of Wiltamshire. In October Gemnoviag resigned from the NAFM to join it's original source, the UNAM instead. The NAFM has also been sent an aplication from The Commonwealth Republic of Avalon expressing an intrest to join the NAFM. On the 11th April 2008, The Principality of Cakeland joined the NAFM. The 3rd of May saw the first nation leave the NAFM, this nation was Wiltamshire, the reason for its leave was due to Wiltamshire comming to an official end by decree of its leader. In mid-2008, the national anthem was chosen by unanimous vote in the NAFM Parliament to be the Dance of the Knights, composed by Sergei Prokofiev.
