The Asia-Pacific Alliance (ASPAA) is an intergovernmental organization endeavoring in bringing together Micronations across Asia for economic and diplomatic purposes, and furthering bonds across Asia. Established on 3 March 2019, the ASPAA was intended to create a powerful diplomatic sphere in Asia. At The headquarters of the ASPAA is in Pasabrillo, Millania, and is under extraterritoriality. Its objectives include, but are not limited to, maintaining international peace and order, sprouting growth, development, and popularization in micronations in Asia, promoting human rights, protecting the environment, and helping with social and economic development.

Structure

The Asia-Pacific Alliance is comprised of three branches, each of them resembling one branch of the three powers in state: legislative, executive and judicial. The separation of powers consists of:

  • The Asia-Pacific Conference, serving as the supreme legislative organ of the ASPAA, but also being given executive and judicial abilities;
  • The Secretary General (and Vice Secretary General), acting as the executive leader, responsible for administration of the ASPAA;
  • The Asian Micronational Court, the supreme judicial organ.

Asia-Pacific Conference

The Asia-Pacific Conference is the main assembly and supreme organ of the Asia-Pacific Alliance. The Conference consists of delegates from each member state. The Asia-Pacific Conference serves as a place of discussion between member states, and has the power to vote on decisions made by the organisation, including election of offices of the organisation, as well as recognition of membership applications.

Secretary General

The Secretary General of the Asia-Pacific Alliance, currently Nicolás Millán, is the executive leader and general representative of the Asia-Pacific Alliance. The Secretary General is charged with the general administration of the Asia-Pacific Alliance, and has duties and powers such as directing voting and meetings of the Asia-Pacific Conference. The Secretary General also has the power to unilaterally suspend any delegate, although any such decision could be vetoed by the Conference. As the main external representative of the Asia-Pacific Alliance, the Secretary General promotes the public image of the Asia-Pacific Alliance and is responsible for representing it in bi- and multilateral discussions.

Councils

In addition to the Conference, ASPAA uses numerous Council Offices in order to accomplish specific goals. These are:

  • The Council of Advancement, responsible for the internal development of member states,
  • The Council of Intergovernmental Relations and Cooperation, responsible for bilateral and multilateral diplomacy between and among member states as well as non-members,
