The Czech sector or the Czech community (Czech: Český sektor/Česká komunita) is a term used to categorize micronations which are mostly bounded and are located inside Czech territory, with some members bounded with or located in Slovakia. The term is used presumably since the establishment of Czech MicroWiki in 2012. There are currently more than 15 micronations considered as the active members of the sector, making it one of the biggest regional micronational communities in terms of active members. The Czech sector is dominated by two international organizations, the Union of Micronations of Central Europe and the Organisation of United Micronations.

Terminology

The term Czech sector, or more often the Czech [micronational] community, is commonly used to described micronations in the territory of the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

To be considered as a member of Czech sector, the micronation should have some form of binding with Czech or Slovakian culture, and associating themselves with it. The micronation should also have its main territory in the Czech Republic or Slovakia, however non-territorial micronations or micronations with territory outside the former Czechoslovakia can be considered a member of the Czech sector as long as it affiliates with Czech or Slovakian culture or is based in Czech or Slovakian territory. Another requirement is to actively participate on the Czech MicroWiki.

History

On 22 October 2017 was the Union of Micronations of Central Europe refounded by Mekniy, Lurk, Radoslavia, Bobania, Okczerpatia, Reichenberg and Moravia, with the UMCE Charter being ratified on 7 November. Moravia however left the process on 6 November, due to tensions with the Bohem Republic, which was given independence from Mekniy on 27 October in the territory claimed by Moravia and joined the UMCE. On 9 November, first administrative reforms in Mekniy took place after the fall of the Coronese Confederation, leading to the establishment of the Fourth Mekkism.

On 18 November, the Unofficial State of Gymnasium joined the community, followed by Fyrinia declaring independence on 23 December. Fyrinia immediately applied for UMCE membership, being accepted on 27 December, replacing Reichenberg, which left on the Christmas Day. The Gymnasium State applied for UMCE membership as well, being accepted as observer on 13 January 2018. On 19 January, the Western Bohemian Republic declared independence, briefly entering in tensions with the Gymnasium State over claimed territory. Day after, the Bohem Republic rejoined Mekniy. The Gymnasium State was given full membership of UMCE on 23 January, and the Order of the Overssers executed a coup in Bobania on 25 January.

On 1 February, the Republic of Bohemia declared independence, resulting in the Gymnasium State mobilizing and sparking the Gymnasian-Bohemian Crisis. The crisis ended on 17 February, immediately followed by declaration of war from Slivinia, declaring independence on 7 February, against Fyrinia. Despite the declaration was supposed to be a joke, it resulted in Slivinia disappearing from the community as the other nations interfered. On 18 February, Okczerpatia joined Mekniy.

After the Gymnasian-Bohemian Crisis, Bohemia and Moravia established an unitary state on 21 February. It lasted until 4 March, when Bohemia declared independence as the Republic of Czechoslovakia after disagreements with the Moravian government. Moravia then declared war on Czechoslovakia on 6 March, followed by Radoslavia declaring war on Moravia the same day.

On 15 March, an ultimatum to the UMCE members was sent by Czechoslovakia, asking for support, but with small effect. On 16 March, idea for a peacekeeping organization was brought up, with the full proposal of Organization of United Micronations created by representatives of the Gymnasium State. On 18 March, first discussions about the OUM were made, with support from most of Czech micronations.

On 4 April, Western Bohemia joined UMCE as an observer, it however slowly started to become a fictional state inspired by Czechoslovakia, especially after independence of Oliland on 9 April. On 1 May, the conflicts with Moravia were nearing end, as Moravia recognized the sovereignty of Radoslavia. This brought more discussions about the OUM creation, which was quickly stolen by Czechoslovakia and Oliland on 3 May. On the same day, Western Bohemia was given full UMCE membership. On 5 May, peace was achieved between Moravia and Radoslavia, followed by peace treaty with Czechoslovakia signed on 13 May.

On 23 May, the Slavic Federation declared independence, immediately joining OUM. On 26 May, the MMA was established by Slavic Federation and Western Bohemia, followed by Oliland. On 4 June, the Slavic Federation left OUM for inactivity, applying for UMCE membership on 9 June. It was rejected, and rejoined OUM on 21 June.

On 14 August, Czechoslovakia joined MMA. On 25 August the Olilandese Revolution, a fictional event supposed to serve as an excuse for government change. It was however interrupted as Doshickaum declared independence against the plans of the government of Oliland. After a discussion in OUM and MMA, it was decided that Oliland and Doshickaum will unite.

On 10 September, the Gymnasium State ceased to recognize fictional nations prior to signatory of the Wrythe Convention on 24 September. This caused tensions between the Gymnasium State and some of the fictional states, however no conflict has taken place. On 24 September was also declared independence of the Kingdom of Bohemia, which joined OUM and MMA on 26 September. On 14 October, the unification of Oliland and Doshickaum finally took place, establishing Menshiria.

On 7 November, another series of reforms took place in Mekniy, and Snowy plains declared independence. On 11 November, Lurk joined Mercia. A brief incident started between Czechoslovakia and Snowy plains after the latter laid new territorial claims on 22 November, but was resolved by an agreement between the sides on 29 November.

In March of 2019 Mekniy annexed Radoslavian puppet of Northern Mekniy as part of an iniciative to reunite historical territories of Mekniy. Snowy plains entered a phase of inactivity on international scene as all their electronical documents were lost. On the end of spring of 2019, a Discord server for Czech MicroWiki was established.

In May, Klitzibürg and the Rednecks Republic declared independence. On 11 July, the fictional states decided to dissolve on an OUM meeting, with an intention to re-establish as non-fictional micronations. During summer, a conflict between newly founded Kybistan and Vitiania raged, alomst resulting in Snowy plains sending a military force in the region. Slavic Republic was established as a successor to the Slavic Federation. On 21 August, Fyrinia entered a phase of reorganizaton in order to become non-fictional micronation as well. Several UMCE projects were also created by Mekniy and Mercia thorough summer and early autumn.

Summits

The first summit to be held in the Czech Republic, Podskalský Congress, took place on 23 March 2019 and had 8 attendees from 4 micronations,[1] followed by a second summit in the Czech Republic, the Summit of Czech and Slovakian Micronations 2019, which took place on 28 September 2019 in Sušice and was organised by Tomáš Falešník of Gymnasium State. The summit had 4 attendees, representing 4 micronations.

Organizations in the Czech sector

Diagram of membership of nations in Czech sector in various organization

There are four micronational organizations in the Czech sector, the largest being the Union of Micronations of Central Europe (UMCE) with 10 members including observers. UMCE was originally established in 2014 as series of treaties between Lurk, Moravia and the Karamial Republic, it however dissolved in 2015 with the establishment of the Corona Confederation. The organization was refounded in 2017 and continues active to this day.

Second active organization in the sector is the Organisation of United Micronations (OUM), which was established in May of 2018 by Czechoslovakia and Oliland after a conflict between Czechoslovakia and Moravia. The original purpose was a peacekeeping organization, proposed by the members of UMCE, the idea was however stolen by Czechoslovakia and the organization served as organization for geofictional states for a long time. This caused some tensions between the OUM and UMCE. On 11 July 2019, the geofictional micronations collectively dissolved and the organization is currently waiting on return of the new micronations replacing the old members. The organization largely cooperated with the Micronational Military Alliance (MMA), a military pact between the OUM members, until its dissolution in July 2019.

Two more organizations existed in the Czech sector, League of Micronations, established by Moravia and Corona in 2015, which dissolved by Mekniy-Lurk as the last remaining member leaving, and Monarchical-Christian Alliance, associating either monarchies or Christian nations, established in March of 2020 by Vltava and Kybistan and dissolved later that year.
