The First Oblate Convention was a formal video conference hosted by Matachwan on 8 October 2020. It was directed by Christopher Miller.

Preperation

The conference was set to begin on Wednesday 7 October 2020 at 15 EST but was postponed two hours due to popular demand. It was postponed once more by the director and finally took place on Thursday 8 October at 17 EST. The conference lasted roughly one hour.

Contents

The attendants discussed various topics including but not limited to; addressing toxicity in the community, questioning the legitimacy of reincarnated or "continued" nations or titles such as the case with the "micronational Holy Roman Empire" as well as claimed "imperial spheres of influence" of certain nations which spans roughly 3.5 continents. The attendants continued to talk about general seriousness within the community if it should allow itself to joke around with things such as TOES or Bobism or ridiculous and unenforceable legislation. The conference continued in a discussion about the term "micronation", what it means to the attendants and the nations they represent, and the many divisions that qualify under that term, from plush toy presidential elections to the independence movement and everything in between.

Conclusion

Briefly was also brought up the foreign relations between the attendants, the following conversation laying the grounds for the Second Oblate Convention to officially document and define the qualifications through which a micronation could be called serious and legitimate.
