The League of Professional Nations (LPN) is an international organization dedicated to the advancement of unrecognized micronational entities with an emphasis on professionalism and legitimacy. The group primarily aims to support new micronations/micronationalists by getting them situated within the community and by providing new/young micronations with the adequate tools necessary to succeed within the larger micronational sphere as a whole.
The LPN achieves these goals by pairing younger micronational leaders with more experienced "mentors" and through the conducting of community projects (such as the creation of MicroWiki pages). In addition, the league also aims to protect the sovereignty of these new nations. This is achieved through the use of a "professional-Esq" legal system designed to peacefully settle disputes among nations.
At this time, the OAM had been in a steady decline since mid-May of that same year. As such, the leaders discussed possible ways to save the group from becoming YAMO and subsequently breaking up. It was eventually decided that one of the ways in which this could be achieved would be through the creation of a dedicated web forum to host meeting data and to ease communications between members (who at this point had been using discord as their primary method of communication for quite some time).
The idea was implemented and though many members disliked the new system (with several boycotting votes, and some outright leaving) the system stuck.
Unfortunately, this was not enough to save the fledgling group, and on the 26th of August 2019, the OAM was dissolved. Following the breakup, the small group that had originally conceived of the forum decided to re-purpose it and to use the site to spearhead their new super-national group. The new organization was named the "League of Professional Nations" and has since been viewed by many as the direct continuation of the defunct OAM.
In February 2020, representatives from the LPN and the League of Nations met over discord to discuss the possibility of a merger between the two organisations. Among the reasons given for the proposed union was a keen lack of activity in both organisations, the similar aims of the two groups and the personal compatibility among member states.
The meeting was headed by Charles Ross (representing the LPN) and Aidan McGrath (Marshal of the LoN) who together came to the mutual agreement that the groups should in fact merge. However, though both parties agreed that preparations should begin immediately; no official documentation was signed and eventually the proposal was dropped altogether.
In April 2020, the LPN announced that it would be re-branding itself as the League of Micronations and subsequently discontinuing activities under the LPN name. Though the general mission statement would be kept and existing LPN members carried over to the new organization, enough would change to justify the LoM being considered its own separate entity not attached to the LPN's history.
Membership is open to all micronations regardless of purpose or operational style. So long as they exercise professionalism in their actions, they are welcome.
However, certain restrictions do apply... These are primarily meant to keep individuals more prone to childish or foolish behavior out of the league.
These rules include, the nation must be at least a month old (with some exceptions), the nation's representative must be on or over thirteen years of age, and the nation must submit to using the online forum for all voting proceedings (again, with certain exceptions). Finally, nations wishing to join must submit a formal application on the LPN's forum.

This list is made up of members who have either formally left the LPN (usually through referendum or through going defunct) or who were kicked out due to violating some aspect of the league. This list also includes current members who (for some reason or another) are no longer active within the organisation (i.e. not demonstrating any activity for over a month).

The organization operates under an absolute democracy where every government decision is voted upon by member states. The position of Secretary-General is mostly ceremonial, with the position serving as "figurehead" for the group. Practically, the Sec.Gen.'s job is to act as a de facto Speaker of the House for meetings and debates.
