– Foundation 13 September 2019

The North Atlantic Defence Union (often abbreviated as NADU) is a Micronational Organisation intended for Micronations located in Macronations near to the North Atlantic. Micronations from any of the more than 23 accepted Macronations may be accepted into the Union. In order to become a member, a nation must be located within a Macronation which has connections to the North Atlantic. This even includes seperate branches such as the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. The Organisation was formed by the Empire of Aenopia, the Republic of Astropolis and the PRPH (People's Republic of Ponderosa Hills.) The WMO utilises a Discord server to communicate to its members, like countless other organisations do for accessibility and ease.

Its website can be found here.

History

NADU started life as a small pact formed by the previously-mentioned nations to allow for free trade, diplomacy, ect. A suggestion was made to create a server, and before long plans were underway to hold a court session. A quick rename resulted in the North Atlantic Defence Union and the treaty was updated to become suitable for an organisation.

On the 21st September 2019, the Empire of Aenopia announced that the Welsh Micronational Union would be absorbed into NADU following a month of inactivity and a lack of members. Over the past few months, the organisation has grown to include 12 members and 1 observer.

Goals

NADU exists with goals in mind to fulfil during its existence. These include:

Development

The organisation's main goal was to provide support to younger and newer nations to grow and become fully fledged, formal entities. Members could help said nations by providing advice as to how their country should be run, help to design symbols for their nation such as a flag, coat of arms, stamps or other symbols synonymous to real nations.

NADU also creates events for member nations to participate in, such as the NADU games currently under development or the NADU climate summit 2019 (this was regarded as "a mess" due to a lack of planning, but was still an event nevertheless).

Diplomacy

NADU members had access to places where they could ask to engage in trade deals or diplomatic relations with other member nations. This is backed by section II of the formation treaty, which covers internal trade deals between member nations.

Members

NADU currently has twelve member nations and one observer nations as of 2 November 2019.

Full Members

Full members are those who have ratified the Charter, and as a result enjoy all the rights and duties given to a member state. For example, they can contribute to discussions and debates, vote in Council Meetings, and stand for election to any positions in the organisation. There are currently twelve full member states. They are in order of date of joining...

Observer Nations

Observers are nations which are permitted access to Council Meetings, and can propose matters to be discussed in a Council meeting, but do not have the right to vote in a Council Meeting, or actively participate in one without the consent of the Chairman. They also must confirm their continued wish to stay in NADU every three months, in order to ensure that observer nations wish to actively partake in NADU business as far as is possible and not simply hold the status of observer merely for the title. There is currently one observer nation.
