Awards and decorations of Sirocco

From MicroWiki, the micronational encyclopædia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Siroccan Awards and decorations system is the system of orders and decorations which are awarded to recognise outstanding achievements pertaining to the Federal Commonwealth of Sirocco and the micronational community as a whole by either Siroccan citizens or external micronationalists. Both military and civilian awards are distributed and are not limited to citizens of the Federal Commonwealth. Awards do not come in specific "classes" as there is only one type of each award. Awards are chiefly granted by the Siroccan government upon review by the Premier, but nominations are accepted from the community relating to any micronationalist. There is no limit to the amount of awards granted to a single micronationalist. All awards were created by Siroccan Premier Daniel Anderson on 10 November 2010 (with the exception of SOOK, which was created on 10 January 2010).

Sovereign Order of Overzealous Kittylitter

The Sovereign Order of Overzealous Kittylitter is not seen as a Siroccan award but more as a joke title. It was merely created in order to give Yablokon Grand Chancellor Aldrich Lucas another title and "to give us the opportunity to call him a sook". Anderson granted Lucas the title stating that he will be "Aldrich Lucas SOOK".
