The Order of North America is a merit order in the North American Confederation recognizing distinguished service to the Confederation and micronationalism. The order was founded on 11 June 2015 by Emperor William I and is the second highest honor awarded by the Confederation behind the Order of the Crown.
The Emperor is at the head of the Order of North America as its Sovereign. The Emperor consults with the Prime Minister on behalf of those he believes are worthy of membership. With the mutual agreement of both executives of government, the candidate is announced and awarded the honor by the Emperor or Prime Minister personally, being granted a collar and ribbon for the appropriate grade.
The Order of North American is divided into three grades, all having post-nominal letters. The highest ranking grade is that of Companion, followed by Officer, and finally Member. Foreigners may be fully admitted into the order at any grade, as the award is for service to the Confederation and/or micronationalism in general, regardless of citizenship. There are currently no limits to the number of any grade, and promotion is possible. Styles of knighthood are not granted by the Order of North America, as the award is a governmental order rather than a royal one.
