The Empire of Aenopia is a member of the Cupertino Alliance, initially being accepted as a member state on 24 February 2020. Aenopia formally ratified the Charter of the Cupertino Alliance on 15 February 2020[1] after applying to the Alliance on the same date. Within the Cupertino Alliance, Aenopia is generally regarded as an active and respected member, particularly due to its primary delegate's former term as Chair of the Board from 15 February to 15 August 2021 and its position as one of the earliest remaining members of the Cupertino Alliance. Aenopia typically ranks highly in the annual Cupertino Member Positivity Survey, having previously ranked in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in October 2020, December 2020 and July 2021 surveys.[2][3]

The primary delegate of Aenopia, Simon Reeve, was initially appointed as Minister of MicroWiki Affairs on 30 May 2020. On 27 September 2020 he was elected as the second Lieutenant Chair of the Cupertino Alliance. On 5 November 2020 Logan announced his candidacy for the Chair of the Cupertino Alliance under the Reeve2021 campaign during the 2nd Cupertino Alliance chairmanship election alongside running mate Matthew Xia.[4] Reeve was later declared as the automatic winner of the 2nd Cupertino Alliance chairmanship election on 4 January 2021 after rival candidate Roscoe dropped out,[5][6] later assuming office on 15 February 2021.

History

Pre-history and relations with CA members

Prior to applying to the Cupertino Alliance, Aenopia maintained a friendly relationship with numerous founding member states, primarily the People's Republic of Ponderosa Hills (now known as the Socialist Federal Union of Ponderosa Hills) and Misberia, at the time known as the United Kingdoms of Misberia and Caloudonum. Out of the 4 founding states of the Cupertino Alliance, Aenopia maintained close relations with Ponderosa Hills via the Organisation of Active Micronations and North Atlantic Defence Union, of which the latter was dissolved due to Montan's shifting interests towards the proto-CA in December 2019. Aenopia formerly maintained relations with Misberia in 2019 unitil its first dissolution in 2020, particularly the Fourth Kingdom of Misberia. Aenopia also interacted with Jayden Lycon via the micronational social group TOES, whilst Aenopia and Millania both held membership in the Grand Unified Micronational.

In addition to its varying relations with founding CA members, Aenopia also maintained close relations with future CA members, particularly Wegmat, New Eiffel, Lytera and Qaflana.

Activity

Delegation

Aenopia has 1 out of the maximum three delegates for a full member, those being Simon Reeve. All delegates were appointed on 24 February 2020. Zabëlle Smith formerly served as an Aenopian delegate following the dissolution of New Eiffel in November 2020 until his departure from the wider micronational community in January 2021. Both Reeve and Skye were the subject of motions of no confidence at various points in their career as Aenopian delegates. The former was motioned by Jayden Lycon in March 2021 as a result of inadequate performance from his administration, whilst the latter was motioned by Leon Montan as the result of antisemitic remarks. Neither motion of no confidence was passed, with the former being withdrawn due to improvements in administration performance whilst the latter failed to reach the required 51% of votes.

Projects

Aenopia is an active participant in numerous Cupertino Alliance programs, such as the Twin Towns program, with Aenopian cities including New Llandudno paired with Ponderosa Hills (far right), Wegmat (left) and Vishwamitra (right).

Aenopia is an active supporter of past and present Cupertino Alliance programs, citing their . In addition, Aenopian delegates have served as principal figures in the establishment of projects such as the Twin Towns, the Cupertino Area of Natural Interest and CA Charts programs. As a result of this, Aenopia is an active participant in projects such as the Twin Towns program, in which the cities of New Llandudno and Rocinante-upon-Afon are paired with 6 other cities.

Statistics

Session attendance

Aenopia maintains an active presence in sessions, having attended 85 out of 115 sessions since its inception as a member on 24 February 2020. During the early periods of its membership, Aenopia attended sessions on an occasional basis due to issues such as Quorum conflict with the Grand Unified Micronational, session times and the occasional ad hoc nature of sessions. Session attendance dramatically improved from September 2020 as interest in the GUM floundered and the CA improved.

Aenopia is typically represented in sessions by Reeve; some sessions were attended by Smith during his short term as a delegate, whilst none were attended by Horobik. In addition, numerous sessions have been hosted by Reeve during his tenure as Chair of the Board, with the first session hosted by Reeve held on 30 January 2021 and the last on 14 August 2021.

Withdrawal

The quality of the administration is so poor that I have partially convinced myself that [Aenopia] does not benefit from the Alliance in its current state, and I have been constantly considering withdrawing it from the CA.

— Simon Reeve criticising the Roy administration as part of the Vote of No Confidence against the latter in 2021.

Although no formal attempt has been made to withdraw Aenopia from the Cupertino Alliance, numerous proposals and comments have been brought forward in the latter half of 2021 for various reasons. Primary reasons in support of the withdrawal of Aenopia (or 'Aexit', a tongue-in-cheek portmanteau of 'Aenopia' and 'exit' akin to Brexit) include the ineptitude of sitting administrations, particularly that of former Chair Dhrubajyoti Roy in late 2021.

Despite this, a survey conducted by the Aenopian government showed that the Cupertino Alliance is perceived as a critical aspect of Aenopian foreign affairs, with the CA being ranked at 4.5/5 in regards to national importance. In contrast, the Grand Unified Micronational ranked at 2.75, with half of the responses supporting a future referendum. This is similar to the Statistic-Dime 2020 MicroWiki General Survey conducted in November 2020, in which 63.5% of the 63 participants said that the Cupertino Alliance was either very positive or positive, compared to the 42.8% which said that the GUM was either very positive or positive.[82][83]

Notes

  1. The Election was slated to last from 29 January – 6 February. The Hamilton-Valentinus Campaign however decided to drop out of the race on 4 January, citing mental health and a toxic environment. As a result, the Chair of the Board and the Superior Judge invoked Article 28 of the Charter Act, awarding the election to Simon Reeve and Matthew Xia.[6]
  2. Aenopia endorsed Hamilton as part of the agreed Gentleman's vote between Reeve and Hamilton.
