Charter of the Union of Micronations
WE THE PEOPLES OF THE UNION OF MICRONATIONS ARE DETERMINED
- to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, and
- to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women large and small, and
- to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of intermicronational law can be maintained, and
- to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom.
Article 1 The Purposes of the Union of Micronations are:
1.To maintain international peace and security, and to that end: to take effective collective measures for the prevention and removal of threats to the peace, and for the suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace, and to bring about by peaceful means, and in conformity with the principles of justice and international law, adjustment or settlement of intermicronational disputes or situations which might lead to a breach of the peace; 2.To develop friendly relations among micronations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace; 3.To achieve intermicronational co-operation in solving intermicronational problems of an economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian character, and in promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language, or religion; and 4.To be a centre for harmonizing the actions of micronations in the attainment of these common ends.
Article 2 The Organization and its Members, in pursuit of the Purposes stated in Article 1, shall act in accordance with the following Principles.
The Organization is based on the principle of the sovereign equality of all its Members. All Members, in order to ensure to all of them the rights and benefits resulting from membership, shall fulfill in good faith the obligations assumed by them in accordance with the present Charter. All Members shall settle their intermicronational disputes by peaceful means in such a manner that intermicronational peace and security, and justice, are not endangered. All Members shall refrain in their intermicronational relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the Union of Micronations. All Members shall give the Union of Micronations every assistance in any action it takes in accordance with the present Charter, and shall refrain from giving assistance to any state against which the Union of Micronations is taking preventive or enforcement action. The Organization shall ensure that states which are not Members of the Union of Micronations act in accordance with these Principles so far as may be necessary for the maintenance of international peace and security. Nothing contained in the present Charter shall authorize the Union of Micronations to intervene in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state or shall require the Members to submit such matters to settlement under the present Charter; but this principle shall not prejudice the application of enforcement measures under Chapter Vll.
Membership in the Union of Micronations is open to all other peace-loving states which accept the obligations contained in the present Charter and, in the judgment of the Organization, are able and willing to carry out these obligations. The admission of any such state to membership in the Union of Micronations will be effected by a decision of the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council.The security council can veto applications.
A Member of the Union of Micronations against which preventive or enforcement action has been taken by the Security Council may be suspended from the exercise of the rights and privileges of membership by the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council. The exercise of these rights and privileges may be restored by the Security Council.
A Member of the Union of Micronations which has persistently violated the Principles contained in the present Charter may be expelled from the Organization by the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council.
