Foreign relations of Adammia

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

In the Empire of Adammia, foreign relations are the responsibility of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, though only the Monarch can grant diplomatic recognition (usually on the advice of the Ministry). Multilateral treaties can be ratified after the Monarch has signed them by the Ruling Council. Foreign affairs is mainly governed by Imperial Decrees XIII and XX.

Adammia joined the Grand Unified Micronational on 12 May 2013, in which it eventually became fairly influential; Adammic delegate Emperor Adam I was Chair of the GUM from September 2014 to December 2014 and from April 2015 to July 2015. However, the collapse of the GUM as an organisation, along with Emperor Adam's personal dissatisfaction with a number of foreign micronational leaders, led to Adammia becoming increasingly withdrawn from international affairs in 2015. When the GUM was revived as an organisation in 2016, Adammia once again became an active participant, and is now steadily regaining its lost influence.

Bilateral relations

Micronations allied with Adammia

Emperor Adam I and Tsar Thomas establish the Cardiff Pact on 17 August 2018.
  • Mohawk flag2.png The Mohawk Empire signed a treaty of mutual recognition and alliance with Adammia on 3 August 2016, two days after it became independent from Adammia as the former colony of Borealia. The two nations have a military alliance.
  • Knoll flag 1.png The Tsardom of Nolland was recognised by Imperial Decree XIII on 7 September 2013. As a former member of the Wurtige bloc, Nolland has had informal interactions with Adammia on a number of occasions, and the two nations had somewhat amicable relations in Adammia's earlier years, before Nolland became inactive. When Nolland was revitalised in 2018, Adammia and Nolland quickly developed strong ties, due to the fact that both Emperor Adam I and the Tsar of Nolland were members of the UK Young Liberals; in July 2018, Adammia and Nolland signed a mutual recognition treaty. Through Nolland, Adam I was introduced to other YL micronationalists from Talossa and Herbatrea, creating an informal grouping of micronations linked to the Young Liberals. In August 2018, Adammia and Nolland's heads of state met in person and signed the Cardiff Pact, establishing a military alliance between the two countries; Emperor Adam described the relations between the two nations as a "special relationship", an apparent reference to be so-called Special Relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States.

Micronations with a mutual recognition treaty with Adammia

Emperor Adam I shakes hands with Ned Hilton of Wazakhstan after signing a treaty on 5 June 2018.
  • MercianFlag.png Mercia was the first ever micronation to sign a treaty of mutual recognition with Adammia, when it was known as Burnham on 8 July 2013. It was the first nation to recognise Adammia as well as the first nation which Adammia recognised. Mercia is traditionally seen in Adammia as an informal ally, and the two nations have very amicable relations, with their respective Head of States exchanging gifts: Lord Richard I has been made a Knight of the Order of Adammia, whilst Emperor Adam I was made Count of Penmine and Spildcastle, a subdivision of Clyro in Mercia.
  • WyvernFlagImproved.png The Kingdom of Wyvern signed a treaty of mutual recognition with Adammia on 5 August 2013. Adammia and Wyvern do not interact often, though they do have amicable relations.
  • Flag of Austenasia.png The Empire of Austenasia was recognised by Imperial Decree XIII on 7 September 2013. On 23 May 2018, Adammia and Austenasia signed a Treaty of Mutual Recognition and Friendship. Presently, Austenasia recognises Adammia, but it does not recognise Adam I's claim to the title of Emperor, instead referring to him as the Monarch of Adammia. This is a result of Austenasia's Imperium doctrine. Emperor Adam is the 11th cousin once removed of Jonathan I, Emperor of Austenasia, and also worked with Joseph Kennedy during Kennedy's term as Chair of the GUM, acting as an unofficial aide to Kennedy. Austenasia and Adammia have exchanged diplomatic gifts in the form of honours.

  • NewWazakhstanFlag1.png The Kingdom of Wazakhstan signed a treaty of mutual recognition with Adammia on 5 June 2018. Wazakhstan shares very close ties with Adammia, as both nations are in close proximity within the Birmingham Sector. Wazakhstan's Prime Minister Ned Hilton is the only foreign micronational leader to date to have visited Adammia and to have addressed Adammia's Ruling Council. Adammia and Wazakhstan have a dual citizenship agreement, under which each state agrees not to discriminate by an applicant's status in the other nation when processing citizenship applications.
