Foreign Relations

Pavlov has a fairly isolationist foreign policy, which is furthermore limited by the Orientism political theory and the Treaty of Theodosia. Pavlov does not enter alliances with other micronations in general, the only exception to this is the Federal Republic of Lostisland, signed in light of the strong cultural and historical ties between the two nations. Pavlov is a member state of the Antarctic Micronational Union.

The following list includes UN member states which are not recognised by the Empire of Pavlov.

Tacit recognition

Pavlov claims to have received tacit recognition - that is, acts or conduct which, in the absence of any indication to the contrary, can be reasonably interpreted to imply recognition - from several countries which have not explicitly granted the Empire official diplomatic recognition.

  •  Monaco: On 29 december 2020, a letter from the Office of HSH the Sovereign Prince addressed the Emperor as "Augustus" and referred to him as the "Leader of Pavlov" implying recognition of Pavlov's monarchy, her Imperial status and government.
