Establishment 25 August 2020

The Association of South Asian Micronations, abbreviated as ASAM, is a regional intergovernmental organization and geopolitical union of micronations in South Asia. It was established on 25 August 2020, with the aim of promoting peace, harmony and unity among the member nations.

History

The ASAM had a been a dream project of Dhrubajyoti Roy since 2019 but due to less micronations from South Asia, the plan could not take its actual form until August 2020. It was on 22 August 2020, the leaders of the State of Vishwamitra and the Micronation of the AVR discussed on the potential establishment of the organization. Eventually, on 25 August 2020, the two leaders signed the establishment document of the association and declared it's foundation on the official twitter accounts of the two nations.
