The Occitanian Commonwealth, also known by the acronym OC, is an intergovernmental organisation of 3 member states, who share strong diplomatic, historical, political or cultural ties with the Union of Nova-Occitania.

History

The start of the organization

The Occitanian Commonwealth was created on July 30, 2017 by the President of Occitania, Babou Chkaya and the President of the Ruterias Federation, Vladimir Novikov. The links between the two leaders were already very strong, indeed part of this Ruterias Federation had been integrated in Occitania (Himeji). On the same day, the Holy Empire of Artinia joined the Commonwealth. On August 7, Germax joined the Commonwealth.

Branchadell Period

On August 13, 2017 after the resignation of Babou Chkaya as Head of the Occitanian Commonwealth, the occitanian Vicent Branchadell was elected with 75% of the members voting (3 out of 4 micronations). Its first action is to exclude the Holy Empire of Artinia, due to their instability. The Commonwealth is dissolved and recreated at the same time as Union of Nova-Occitania. On August 13th, 2019 a charter is adopted by the members.
