The League and Commonwealth of Durham Micronations is an organisation consisting of 2 members and an observer, which emulates the League of Nations and Commonwealth of Nations. It serves diplomatic purposes as well as sporting purposes for the Durham Commonwealth Games. Currently, the only members are the British Empire and the Free Democratic People's Soviet Socialist Republic of Jocistan, and Sholand is an observer. It is known informally in the British Empire simply as 'the Commonwealth'.

Structure

The LCDM lacks structure, as it intends for members to vote on the structure. It currently consists of a Court of Mediation to resolve diplomatic issues, a forum, a Commonwealth games which has not yet taken place, and a scheme for agreeing on exchange rates.

The Commonwealth has stated that it will not have introduce any laws other than human rights laws, which it currently does not have. This is in order to avoid becoming an EU-like institution which can be viewed as too federalised.

Commonwealth Games

The Durham Commonwealth games is a sporting event designed to mimic the Commonwealth Games. It has not yet taken place. The confirmed sports are: Snooker, Pool, Durham Javelins, Table Tennis, Longsword Sparring, and Golf.
