Nikola Lasica (born February 2, 1984) is the Chairman of the State Bureau of the State of the People of West Antarctica. He is one of the founders of this micronation. He was the Vice-Secretary of the AMU, from February to December 2010.
Nikola Lasica was born in Kragujevac, Serbia ( which then was a part of Yugoslavia). The youngest child in his family, he has a sister Gorica. He grew up during the most difficult period in his nation's history - dissolution of once great country, civil wars, Yugoslav hyperinflation of 1993, and UN embargo against Yugoslavia. The years that followed saw the oppression of totalitarian regime of Slobodan Milosevic which culminated in 1999 Nato bombing of Serbia. These circumstances of his childhood influenced his political views and ideas. As a high-school student, Nikola was a sympathizer of Otpor! during the 2000 election protests and became an ardent supporter of Serbian Democratic Party. Nikola was active in Serbian NGO sector from 2001-2009 and participated in numerous activities focused on HIV/AIDS prevention and education. Since late 2009, he is a member of Democratic Party.
Nikola is a firm democrat and a strong believer in democracy. As someone who grew up in communism, he strongly opposes totalitarian and one-party systems. Although a religious man himself, he firmly believes in secularism. He considers the Unilateral Declaration of Independence, proclaimed by the interim administration of Kosovo as a total violation of International law. West Antarctica regards Kosovo as a part of the Republic of Serbia.
Nikola was one of the founders of the Chairman of the State of the People of West Antarctica possibly the first Serbian micronation. Although a young nation, it became a useful member of Antarctic community. Nikola found a friend in Niels I of Flandrensis with whom he shares the idea of a better micronational community. He participated in GAMA reorganization of 2010, and created the current emblem of AMU.
