The Organisation of Active Micronations (OAM) is an intermicronational organisation founded by New Eiffel and Livettree, created to stimulate foreign relations and the development of micronations, providing a space in which said states can utilize assistance from the organisation's community to design national symbols such as flags, logos, coats of arms or emblems in addition to the identifying marks of their public and private corporations.

OAM members coordinate the writing of articles in MicroWiki, ensuring an environment of peace and cooperation in which they can obtain the legal stability necessary for all citizens of micronations to start their own businesses and obtain funding.

The Organisation of Active Micronations is one of the fastest growing micronational organisations (within the MicroWiki Sector). This is most likely due to the fact that the organisation is not very exclusive.

History

The Organisation of Active Micronations has achieved much since it's founding.

Foundation and early history

The organisation was created on 21 November 2018 by New Eiffel and Livettree. It was originally meant to be an organisation for trading and foreign relations. During its early history, the OAM was known as the New Eiffel Union of Micronations (this name was heavily criticized by early members for its seemingly imperialistic and possessive tone) more commonly refereed to as the NEUM or the NEUoM.

By late December of that same year, the NEUM had gained 12 member states, and together they started a new list of goals and purposes. The union obtained £80 funding from SURÜ, making it easier for the union to financially support its many micronational businesses. Foreign relations also quickly arose between member states, making it much easier for them to communicate. Additionally, the NEUoM at this time constructed its discord server to act as its permanent hub and primary meeting center (replacing google hangouts).

Early 2019

Growth slowed down a bit throughout early 2019, and many prominent longtime member states like the Blue Army became inactive. Although, several states joined in January-March 2019 (most notably the Tsardom of Phokland and the Empire of Emosia) inactivity became an increasing problem and there were talks of dissolving the union.

Besides the plaguing inactivity within the union, some things of note were accomplished. Most importantly, the official discord server was formalized and updated, allowing for more ease of access allowing the union to gain 7 new full members within the first week of the update. Diplomatic ties also grew, as it became easier and more efficient to communicate through discord. Ministers were also introduced, the first ministries were; Minister of Recruitment, Minister of help and other affairs, Minister of writing and grammar, Minister of Foreign Relations, and the Minister of finance.

April, 2019 - Present

After a boost in activity and the creation of a legislative committee (known as the Council of Legislature), the group decided that its working name, the New Eiffel Union of Micronations was too self serving so on 1 May 2019 (following a referendum) the organization officially changed it's name to the Organisation of Active Micronations (hoping to follow in the footsteps of the group that had previously held the name). Though the new name has caused some mild controversy throughout the micronational community, it is widely accepted and approved of within the organisation.

Goals

The OAM exists with several goals in mind, both within and without the micronational community.

Development

The organisation features a series of templates for members to ensure that all micronations have access to the creation of their own elaborate symbols such as flags, logos, coats of arms or images representing public and private corporations in each nation. With graphic design and cultural tools, micronations can launch actions related to the issuance of postage stamps, issuing banknotes or also creating their own magazines with cultural content.

Partners have access to article writing services both from the micronational entities themselves and from individuals highlighted from the micronations in the MicroWiki.

The OAM also creates and participates in several community outreach events (such as the OAM Games).

Diplomatic area

OAM members have access to a completely open market where (through free trade/defense) many states can easily find allies with whom they can cooperate to produce statistics, working papers, books and other reference materials for the cultural and economic development of the community.

Legal stability

The organisation's judicial division helps to arbitrate possible misunderstandings and disputes between members, guaranteeing a space for communication and intermicronational stability. The judicial division of the OAM has the task of preventing wars and other such conflicts between member states and other members/outside nations.

Small business assistance

The New Eiffel Times, an OAM funded business

Through the development both in graphic design and in legal stability sponsored through the organization, members have access to a space where they can find potential commercial allies with whom to develop business relationships, being able to find sponsors or financing diverse businesses in the public and private institutions of each micronation.

Membership

Membership into the OAM is open to all micronations/geofictional states. The only requirements are that the nation must have the sponsorship of an already existing full member and the applying nation must be grounded in some form of reality (eg. the applying state cannot be a roleplay/LARP). As of May 2019, there are 44 full members and 2 observers.

Members that are under "Red Status" are currently being voted on whether they should be kicked or not.
