Since its Declaration of Independence from Empire of Emosia on 16 August 2019, Aenopia has moved to become an active member of the Micronational Community where possible, and has since become a member of numerous Micronational Organisations such as the Grand Unified Micronational, Cupertino Alliance, Micronational Olympic Federation to name a few. Foreign Affairs are handled by the Foreign Affairs Ministry.

As part of this, Aenopia actively engages in formal and informal Diplomacy with other nations through these means and others, for which are formally conducted by the Crown. As of August 2020, Aenopia has signed formal documents with 19 other sovereign states, and recognizes the existence of 18 other nations, without the signing of Treaties to legally bind this.

Diplomatic Affairs

Recognised states; no foreign relations

Aenopia recognizes the sovereignty of these states, however, has not engaged in formal diplomacy. Recognition is also given to all members and observers of the now-defunct North Atlantic Defence Union. Recognition of these sovereign states does not equate to diplomacy including the signing of formal documents. This list also includes defunct or inactive states which were formerly recognised by the Aenopian Government.

Full foreign relations

An example of an Aenopian Diplomatic treaty, this being the Aenopia-Posaf Mutual Recognition Treaty. This has since gone on to become the standard template for Aenopian treaties.

Aenopia formally recognizes the sovereignty of these states, via the signing of formal documents. This regulates the recognition of the government of each state; mutual sovereignty and claimed territories of each nation.

International Participation

Aenopian Involvement in Foreign Affairs and the Auvenum Crisis

The Empire of Aenopia does not engage in Foreign Conflicts due to a part of the Consitutuion stating that the 'Empire of Aenopia retain Peace and promises not to initiate conflicts with any recognised, Sovereign states unless the Sovereignty of the Empire is violated.'[21] This means that according to the Consitution, Aenopia must not initiate Conflicts with other nations else fear of violating the Consitution. As a result, Aenopia does not engage in Foreign affairs as a whole except with one case. On 7 July 2019 as part of a Peacekeeping mission, the OAM sent James Ellis of Emosia and HRH Logan I of the at the time Dominion of Aenopia to Auvenum following reports of the population rioting. [22] [23] However, attempts to bring peace were soon ceased following the unwillingness of the population to end the Riots so the two Ambassadors withdrew.

International organisation participation

Aenopia was a member of the Organisation of Active Micronations (New Eiffel Union), which at the time of dissolution has 44 member states and 7 observers. However, Aenopia left along with others due to issues regarding the organization. Aenopia is currently a Full Member of the Grand Unified Micronational (GUM for short) following 1 month of Observership in the Organisation.

Full Membership

Aenopia and the Grand Unified Micronational

The Empire of Aenopia is a full member of the Grand Unified Micronational, and has been since the Quorum of Delegates convened and voted on 27 November 2019.[29] Aenopia was previously accepted as an Observer on 6 October 2019 and as a Provisional state on 10 November 2019.[30] Aenopia was also involved in the GUM Member States Positivity Survey. This was a survey conducted by Zarel Smith from Statistic-Dime asking participants to rank full member states of the Grand Unified Micronational based on how positively said participant viewed them. As part of this survey, Aenopia was ranked joint 13th out of 42 Members, initially with a score of 3.7. during the 20 respondents survey[31] later falling to 3.5 with the 40 respondents survey.[32]

Aenopia and the Cupertino Alliance

Aenopia has been a member of the Cupertino Alliance since 24 February when it was made the 4th member of the organisation.[33] The primary delegate, Logan Ross is also the Minister of Microwiki Affairs, a division which focuses on the improvement of member nation's pages, as well as manages several CA MicroWiki related projects[34]

Treaties and Conventions

Wrythe Convention

A screenshot of the Aenopian ratification of the Wrythe Convention.

The Wrythe Convention is an international treaty which condemns sockpuppeting, identity theft, and false claims within micronationalism. Signatories to the Convention pledge to not enter into relations with any entities engaged in fabrications and falsehoods, and by signing the treaty reserve the right to suspend or revoke recognition of any entities found to have engaged in such behaviour.[35] The Empire of Aenopia has been a signatory of the Wrythe Convention since 11 July 2019[36] and enforces this Convention due to its Membership within the GUM.

Edgbaston Convention

The Edgbaston Convention is an intermicronational treaty which defines higher standard of accuracy in claims and condemns misleading claims within micronationalism, comprising of three key sections stating that Micronations should not claim people who don't consent to being citizens, claim territories in which the majority of residents are not citizens and count activities such as working in a nearby macronation as part of their gross domestic product (GDP). The Empire of Aenopia has been a signatory of the Edgbaston Convention since 17 August 2020.[37]

Sough Convention on Global Climate Change, 2019

The Sough Convention on Global Climate Change covers the minutes and discussed events of the NADU Climate Summit 2019 and other articles covering macronational actions on climate change. This was initially created in New Aberdare on 25 September 2019 and entered into force 1 October 2019. This convention is the 2nd volume of the North Atlantic Defense Union's Treaty Series, covering treaties signed, ratified or created by NADU parties or representatives. This convention also covers deadlines set by NADU parties covering the abolition of negative emission-producing everyday objects. This convention does not cover the complete removal of carbon emissions from the atmosphere. The Empire of Aenopia was the original signatory and creator of the Convention, having signed the Convention on 25 September 2019.[38]

The Intergalactic Treaty

The Intergalactic Treaty was a formal document initially created by New Cymru on 3 June 2019. It decrees that any nation that signs it, will not make any intergalactic claims on any Planets, Moons, Stars or terrestrial bodies in order to leave the galaxy free to explore and research. The first Amendment also declares that any nation that signs it will not recognise any micronation that claims any interstellar space. It has been signed by 8 Nations.[39]

The contents of the treaty are now more commonly seen and ratified in the more well-known Edgbaston Convention which Aenopia has also signed and ratified and so as a result has made the Intergalactic Treaty obsolete.

Macronational Diplomacy

United Kingdom - In response to COVID19, the UK Government sent letters to 30 million British households to warn people about the disease. As a result, HRH Logan I comically joked about the letter being a token of Aenopian-British Diplomacy.
