The Lycon Citation, formerly known as the Lycon Cross was the highest honour of the Cupertino Alliance.


Only one individual may be awarded within the period of 6 months. So far there have been 5 recipients.

Daniel Joseph 16 February 2021 Joseph has served as a figurehead rags-to-riches individual not only in the Cupertino Alliance but also in the wider community. Since joining in July 2020, Joseph has risen the ranks, initially being appointed as Deputy Minister of Asian and Oceanic affairs on 30 September 2020 and later being upgraded to Minister of Asian and Oceanic affairs on 6 November 2020. Joseph was also the first individual to declare their candidacy in the Chair elections, during which he held the lion’s share of votes by dominating the polls until December 2020. Even afterwards Joseph continued to put up a true fight against opponent Ross until he eventually dropped out on 4 January 2021. To quote the song Resist by RUSH:

“You can fight, fight without ever winning. But never really win, win without a fight.”

This quote reflects Joseph's commitments to the Chair elections: his persistence and ambition made the elections much more competitive and difficult for the other candidates (and I say this for all of them).

Joseph hasn’t been chosen solely based on these reasons alone, but as part of persistent ambition, professionalism, perseverance and activity within the Cupertino Alliance and the wider micronational community. His constant attitude towards the Cupertino Alliance is something that the rest of us can only look up to.[1]

Carson Snyder 26 January 2022 "Due to numerous nominations and the significant amount of effort he has dedicated to this alliance during the last six months." -Tyler Mullins
Tyler Mullins 30 July 2022 "For his contributions during his own chairmanship which has undoubtedly led the Cupertino Alliance to the relative stability it enjoys today, and for being a large assistance behind the scenes. I hope we can continue the stability that Mr. Mullins has established." -Carson Snyder
Sertor Valentinus 1 January 2023 "Though the past year has had plenty of challenges owing to the poor decisions of a few; the benevolent decisions of the rest of us is what must define our prosperous future. And indeed, I have found much consolidation and hope for this to be the case in the members of our administration to whom I owe thanks for their enthusiastic support, loyalty, and competence. In particular, I would like to pay thanks to a constant voice of reason in his position for nearly a whole year, a dependable and diligent advisor, Superior Judge Sertor Valentinus, whereby consequent to a following Chair order he receives the Lycon Citation.

Valentinus' exemplary ability and servitude is only a footnote in my undying confidence and optimism that our administration will work as a cornerstone of a flourishing 2023, so that a happy new year is not merely a wish, but a policy to be eagerly pursued." – Chris Ramsay[2]

Chris Ramsay 1 September 2023 "Since being thrusted on the spot in an acting leadership role in November 2022 at the head of an organisation, that many would describe as its lowest point following the Neal administration's illegal seizure of power, Ramsay served as a stabilising and reformative figure pivotal in the ongoing effort to modernise and professionalise the Cupertino Alliance.

The exemplary efforts of Ramsay deserve the utmost recognition, unto which I do bestow this award.

Congratulations Chris Ramsay, and thank you for your service to the Cupertino Alliance." -Sertor Valentinus[3]
