Association of Indonesian Micronations (Indonesian: Asosiasi Negara Mikro se-Indonesia), abbreviated as AIM, is an intermicronational organisation consisting of micronations located inside Indonesian sector. With its aim on maintaining peace and unity between its members, it since become the most influential organisation and bring numerous contribution in development of the sector. The organisation founded on 11 July 2011 by two leaders from Indokistan and Los Bay Petros, Nabil Ihsan and Adriansyah Yassin Sulaeman.

Throughout the existence of this organisation, it already experienced and mediating conflicts made by their state members. Ignoring conflicts inside the organisation, the members can solidify themselves and turned out as a strong thaw to crush common enemies. This was seen on 2014 Malindo Conflict, when the organisation declared their siding with Indokistan and Omahkulon.

Despite the initial intention of the organisation to just to "give place for Indonesian micronationalists to hang out", explicitly declared by Adriansyah Yassin Sulaeman in 2013, the organisation later turned to be more formal, by issuing resolutions and decrees for its member. Basic law of the organisation was composed and established in January 2015, with amendments was discussed in mid-2016.

History

The organization was established in 11 July 2011, after two leaders, Adriansyah Yassin Sulaeman of Los Bay Petros and Nabil Ihsan of Indokistan, successfully composed various foundation for the organisation, which is the logo, goal, and a charter, and declare the establishment of AIM. After a quite progressive development, the organisation became stagnant and turned inactive in the end of 2012.

Responding on inactivity, a reform on the organisation was initiated on January 2013, with resulting changes are formation of new systems on the organisation, with the most notable are the formation of security council with two permanent members - Indokistan and Los Bay Petros - and one rotatable members. On March 2013 Rayhan Haikal was appointed as new secretary general of the organisation, he was the longest-serving secretary general (as there was no period term set) until his dismissal on August 2014 by the High Court.

The organisation played role in 2014 Malindo Conflict, when the organisation explicitly sided with Indokistan and Omahkulon, on which at that time was under threat of the opponent inside the conflict - Malindo and its "allies". After various support from members to end the conflict, the conflict was ended with status quo ante bellum for Indokistan and Omahkulon.

As a symbol of unity, the organisation planned an olympic-style competition called "AIM Games". The "torch" was relayed from Excellent Republic on March 2014 and was planned to follow spesific path so all members will receive the torch. The torch was lost in the route between Indokistan and Sunda Raya, rendering the relay failed. If its succeeded, the torch will pass 10.000 kilometres and accessed 3 out 5 Indonesian largest islands, Java, Sumatra, and Sulawesi.

On August 2014, the organisation established a High Court, after appointment of three judges and formation of judiciary subsector. The first and only court case held by the court caused Rayhan Haikal to lost his position as secretary general for took office over its expired time. Unfortunately, the supreme judge failed to give successor even after he dismiss the secretary general. This caused the organisation to have no secretary general until January 2015, with Indokistan took place as acting chairman.

Association of Indonesian Micronations finally have their Basic Law on January 2015 after the election of Tommy Narisworo as new secretary general. At the same period, a summit on May 2015 and took place on Indokistani capital Suwarnakarta was planned.

On February 2015, Los Bay Petros was expelled from their entire status of membership of the organisation. This was done after the country turned inactive for more than 6 months and is under unclear circumstances of their current situation. This motion turned out to be controversial, because the country was one of the founder of the organisation, and all members acknowledge their contribution for the organisation. Nonetheless, the motion to expel Los Bay Petros was passed and their status inside the organisation was revoked. It was agreed that their membership automatically restored if they declared the situation inside their country to the general assembly, but until this time there was no Los Bay Petrosian delegates to even respond the motion, and to address the assembly.

The organisation revamped their system again in June 2016, after months of stagnation and lack of regeneration among the community. The change was triggered with the upcoming dissolution of Indokistan - then acting chairman - that forced the country to summon a session to elect new leadership. As a result, leadership system was changed, with future plans is to rearrange membership system. After 5 July, the organisation finally runned by entirely "new" generation as both of the founders already dissolved, and only non-founding members currently running it, despite Nabil Ihsan committment to continue his career in micronationalism, despite without any micronational citizenship.

Structure

Chairman

Arkapore, current Chairman of AIM

Chairman of AIM (Indonesian: Ketua AIM) is the highest position of leadership inside the organisation. Chairmanship of the organisation is for a country instead of an individual, that is rotatable every 6 months starting from oldest member of AIM. On the end of their period, an accountability speech must be delivered. This new system was made in June 2016, replacing the secretary general position.

The position is currently filled by Arkapore, replacing Harjakarta since 1 July 2018.

General Assembly

General Assembly (Indonesian: Majelis Umum) is a formal board of discussion established in AIM. The assembly is used to taking important decisions and membership applications. Chairman are obliged to open, close, and moderate the assembly.

Defunct institution

High Court

High Court organ (Indonesian: Majelis Tinggi) was established on August 2014 as an ad hoc organ, and it is used to accomodate and process all lawsuits from any members. The supreme court have three judges, and on every court session, only one is needed. The last judges were Theodorus Diaz Praditya of Excellent, Nabil Ihsan of former Indokistan and Tian Abdurrahman from Arkapore. Its only lawsuit processed was on the legality of Rayhan Haikal status of Secretary General in 2014, ended on his dismissal from the position.

Security Council

Security Council (Indonesian: Dewan Keamanan) was initially formed in 2013 as a symbolic honour for founding members, Indokistan and Los Bay Petros which become permanent member of the council. The council later given reserve power inside the organisation (mainly to create "stability") after the new constitution was established in January 2015.

Non-permanent security council member initially rotated from other members every three months, which failed since its first period. Omahkulon become the only non-permanent security council member that revoked from its position on August 2014 after court orders, and there were no vote on the new non-permanent member.

The position was disbanded after the only permanent member, Indokistan, dissolved on 5 July, thus vacated the entire council. Before its eventual disbandment, there were already several calls to revoke any "special status" of member states, including to remove the Security Council.

A proposal to restore the security council was raised by Arkapore, and yet to be discussed on the next General Assembly session.
