The Atlanta Regional Union is an international organization created to promote peace and diplomacy in the Georgia micronational community, otherwise known as the Atlanta Cluster. It was founded by the leaders of the Grand Duchy of Navārdia and Free Nation of New Athens on 1 December 2019. It currently has three member states, but many other local entities are eligible to join.
The charter of the Atlanta Regional Union states the following:
“We wish to formally announce the creation of the Atlanta Regional Union.
Founded on 1 December 2019, the Atlanta Regional Union is formed to pursue unity and harmony within the nations within the Atlanta, GA area, through diplomacy and cooperation for mutual benefit.
The rights and duties of each nation include the following:
- All member nations are required to respect one another's sovereignty, and may not attempt to dissolve or attack one another.
- All member nations are required to recognize one another.
- All member nations may participate in all open union discussions.
- All member nations must uphold the rights and duties within this document.
- All member nations must ratify or agree to the terms of the Wrythe Convention.
The Atlanta Regional Union shall have no centralized governor, and instead be guided and governed through cooperation with one another.”

- For one reason or another, the nation(s) are unable to meet the mutual recognition requirement of the charter.

The Atlanta Regional Union intended to create a micronational and community hybrid currency called the Atlanto, for use alongside other currencies such as the US dollar. The Atlanto has lost focus in the Union since its inception in March of 2020, as both Naveria and New Athens (the only member states at the time) have begun work on their own national currencies in September and November of the same year. Later discussions about the Atlanto have proposed its use as an international trading cryptocurrency.
