GUM Security Council
The Security Council (SC) was the organ of Grand Unified Micronational charged with the promotion and development of intermicronational peace and security. As with the Advancement Council, the SC consisted of up to five member states who were elected every three months with a ban on having a third consecutive full term. The Security Council could intervene in any issues regarding security, conflict or peace promotion between member states, but had no authority to force any nation to change their policy on any issue. The Security Council was disestablished during the August 2010 attempted reform, but reformed by the Quorum after the restoration of GUM activity a year later. It was again disestablished on 31 March 2013, in response to a lack of traditional micronational conflicts for it to respond to.
The Council worked closely with the Quorum of Delegates to achieve its aims and intervened in many diplomatic issues dealt with by the GUM such as the Meissner-Antifan, New Euro-Erusian, and Rhodesian Wars. In all these cases, Erusia was part of the Security Council. The Security Council was disestablished during the August 2010 attempted reform, but reformed by the Quorum with the re-establishment of the GUM in August 2011. On 25 October 2011, the Security Council launched an initiative to have three quarters of all GUM full members signatory to the Treaty of Universal Peace by 13 December - this goal was achieved on 1 November. At present, the GUM encourages all new member states to become signatory.
The Security Council was deactivated alongside the Advancement Council during the term of Richard Cunningham as Chair of Quorum in March 2013, as an indirect result the 2012-13 GUM leadership scandal, and was disbanded permanently with the entry into force of the Charter on 15 February 2014.
In April 2012, the position of Secretary of the Security Council was created, to lead and co-ordinate its projects. A list of secretaries is as follows:
