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 was 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 among member states. Ignoring internal conflicts and frictions, member states are able to solidify themselves and became a strong thaw to crush common enemies. This was seen on 2014 Malindo Conflict, when the organisation explicitly declared their siding with Indokistan and Omahkulon.

Despite the initial intention of the organisation is 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 and regulated, by issuing resolutions and decrees for its member states. Basic law of the organisation was written and ratified in January 2015, and was heavily amended later in July 2019.

Early activities

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 foundations for the organisation, which is the logo, goal, and a founding 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 the second Secretary General, ruling over the organisation until his dismissal on August 2014 by the High Court.

Consolidation

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 halfway on the track en route between Indokistan and Sunda Raya, rendering the relay failed. If it 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 only court case ever heard by the court was on the legality of Rayhan Haikal rule as the secretary general, that was challenged by Tommy Narisworo that accused him for ruling over his term length. The following trial affirms Tommy's accusation, and stripping Rayhan's rights to rule as Secretary General. Unfortunately, the Supreme Judge verdict failed to appoint any successor even after he dismissed 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 the third secretary general. Tommy later resigned from his position on March 2015, and was replaced by Indokistan as acting chairman. At the same period, a summit was proposed to be held in Indokistani capital Suwarnakarta on May 2015, and was failed because of lack of financial support.

A conflict ensues in February 2015, when the organisation stripped Los Bay Petrosian membership. It was controversial due to the status of Los Bay Petros as one of the founders of the organisation, and all member states did acknowledged its essential contribution and vital position on the organisation. The decision was taken because Los Bay Petros had turned inactive since August 2014, and its current situation was unclear. Nonetheless, the motion to expel Los Bay Petros was passed by the General Assembly. The decision leaves only Indokistan that remained as the founding member of the organisation.

Post-founder era

The organisation revamped its system again in June 2016. The decision was triggered by the upcoming dissolution of Indokistan - then acting chairman - that forced the country to summon a special session to elect new leadership. With Indokistan as precedent, the General Assembly agreed to replace the general secretary with a new title of Chairman that was presided over by micronation instead of individual. After 5 July 2016, the organisation finally runned by entirely "new" generation as both of the founders was already dissolved, and only non-founding members currently running it, despite Nabil Ihsan committment to continue his career in micronationalism yet without any micronational citizenship.

The organisation had been stagnated after Indokistani dissolution, following trends in the Indonesian sector that follows suit. Lack of regeneration process was blamed to be the main culprit. The organisation previously broad social media has been reduced and confined in one group as of 2018. Committment to simplify the organisation was later made by member states, especially after arrival of generation of new members of AIM.

A convention to amend the Charter was opened in 3 July 2019 shortly after the accession of Excellent as the new Chairman. The convention heavily amended the Charter in order to adjust the current necessity and ability of the organisation personnels. The final draft of the Charter was ratified in 29 July 2019 by all members of AIM. The new Charter authorised the position of Chairman and the new General Secretariat, restored the Secretary General title, while officially removed the Security Council and defunct membership status. In 20 September 2019, Nabil Ihsan nomination as Secretary General was accepted by the General Assembly.

The council later given reserve power inside the organisation (mainly to create "stability") after the new constitution was established in January 2015.

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 last permanent member, Indokistan, dissolved on 5 July 2016, 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.
