The Micronational Heritage Association is an intermicronational cultural organisation, tasked with classification and protection of micronational heritage sites and cultural works. The organisation focuses mostly on producing classification of micronational heritage and yearly reports on conservation of it.

As of July 2021, the MHA is being reformed by Jack D and should start receiving submissions again shortly.

History

The Micronational Heritage Association was founded on the 31st of December 2018, by Karl Friedrich.

After January 2020, the organisation became inactive and essentially defunct. Terry of Essexia was given ownership but didn't revive it, opting to give it to Jack D in June 2021 who has promised to revive the organisation.

Membership

Membership is based on a purely voluntary basis, with member-states and non-members having no obligations to the organisation. Interested parties, both members and non-members, may submit sites or works for review and receive a classification provided by the Board of Assessors in return.

Classification

Classification of submitted items is primarily divided into sites and works – sites are physical, natural or man-made immovable structures and areas of special importance to a micronation. Each submitted site should have at least some form of legal protection in the submitting micronation. The other primary classification is works, which includes cultural developments of a micronation, mobile structures or small items, documents of importance and other works. Each item may be awarded more than one classification.
