At its founding, the Intercontinental Union is consistent of one member state. The headquarters of the IU is in Pasabrillo, Millania, and is under extraterritoriality. Its objectives include, but are not limited to, maintaining international peace and order, sprouting growth, development, and popularization in less-known micronations, promoting human rights, protecting the environment, helping with social and economic development, and providing humanitarian aid with war, famine, global epidemics, and natural disasters.

History

The UM, officially the United Micropact, is an intermicronational organization similar to the GUM, or the UN. Its goals, as noted on the official website is "to bring peace and co-operation to the micronational community". It was formed on the 7th of January, 2018 with 3 founding members; Kingdom of Falcar, Principality of Andany, and Principality of Squamily and Friends. The Commonwealth of Danatia joined 1 day after the founding. As a relatively newly formed organization. The organization was founded by the Principality of Squamily and Friends (now Posaf), when Prince Henry Edwelo wanted to establish ties with other nations. Later Prince Edwelo wanted to shift its goal to micronational peace.

After the one day the United Micropact and the Federated Union of Micronations agreed to merge 1 day after the foundation of the UM. The UM and FUM kept the name United Micropact, but changed their logo. With the merge, the Principality of Andany and Commonwealth of Danatia (now Republic of Bernada) joined Posaf and the Kingdom of Falcar.

At the end of May, The United Micropact began to break down, Posaf holding a referendum on leaving The UM, resulting in over 50% in favor of leaving. Soon after, Iustus requested demotion to observer status. Later in June, Posaf left The United Micropact followed by Iustus. Andany also began the process of leaving The UM. The Chair ofthe UM, Nicolas Millan, held a vote on whether to merge The UM with the newly formed Intercontinental Union. The vote in The UM was successful by a supermajority, and on 23 June 2018, The UM began the process of merging with The IU.
