The Southeast Asian Micronational Association, commonly abbreviated as the SEAMA (/simɑː/), is an intermicronational organisation that serves to enrich ties between micronations located in Southeast Asia and to promote sports, unity and cooperation.

Subejia founded the Southeast Asian Micronational Association on 24 July 2021 after noticing the inactivity of the Micronational Association of Southeast Asia founded by Association of Indonesian Micronations back in 2013. The goal of the SEAMA is to make peace with each micronations in Southeast Asia and making diplomatic relations for economic development.

SEAMA membership is open to any independent sovereign state that is located in Southeast Asia. If they did not wanted to or the application is failed, they will not recognises by SEAMA at all. The members of SEAMA can promote the organisation.

As of 2023, the SEAMA has 7 active members.

History

Pre-foundation

The Democratic Kingdom of Subejia interested in joining the Micronational Association of Southeast Asia. After many years later, Azwariq Qadri realised that the MASA is in period of inactivity.

Foundation era (2021–2022)

Foundation

Subejia founded the SEAMA on 24 July 2021 after seeing the Micronational Association of Southeast Asia was inactive. Azwariq Qadri declared the foundation of SEAMA and also Subejia's website. Ezraia accepted to became a full member of SEAMA.

Establishment of SEAMGF

Azwariq also established Southeast Asian Micronations Games Federation, commonly abbreviated as the SEAMGF. Southeast Asian Micronations Games Federation was under the regulation of the SEAMA. Azwariq finding inspiration in the Southeast Asia Games, he decided to establish SEAMGF but under the regulation of SEAMA.

Operation The End

The Operation The End was declared by the Chair himself. The infamous military operation was fictional and its bloodless. It was controversial and still has been debated as the Democratic Republic of Subejia declared war on People's Fascist of Nabilia (now as United Nabilia). The main objective of the military operation was to "end fascism ideology". It was ended by treaty and therefore, SEAMA held an election on February 2022.

The first Chair election

The first election was held on 1 February until 9 February 2022. It was the aftermath of the Operation The End. After Most Serene Republic of Richensland joining the organisation, Nyck Bradaten was selected as running mate for Azwariq Qadri, the current Chair. Even though, Azwariq won the election without sham election.

Foundation of SEAMFERB

Southeast Asian Micronations Film and Entertainment Rating Board, or abbreviated as SEAMFERB, was founded on 10 February 2022, which was after the election was held. Kim Il Sung, Emperor of Han Raya Empire, was elected as chief executive officer of the organisation. The organisation was similar to the Cupertino Alliance's Amalgamated Film Rating Board, which responsible for the classification of the video work (film, television programmes, commercials, public information, etc.).

Implementation of the Charter

The Charter of the Southeast Asian Micronational Association was adopted on 18 February 2022. The charter contains 6 parts and 33 articles. The charter was amended on 23 February 2022, in which to giving a special protection for the fictional micronations.

Post-foundation era (2022–present)

The organisation has announced its Discord server and moved from WhatsApp to Discord. The organisation started to grew and mostly influenced the Southeast Asian micronations.

A vote of no confidence against the supreme justice Ezra was held, as requested by the current Chair, Azwariq. He told that Ezra cannot open his Discord account. As a result, the vote of no confidence was held on 24 October 2022.

The December 2022 election finally was held after many postponed, in which became a sudden transition while Thomas Jacobs won uncontested. It is the first time since SEAMA's first Chair election.

On 11 January 2023, Thomas Jacobs announced his resignation and shocked the whole organisation. His resignation later makes Manggala Alif Prasetia became the first acting chair in SEAMA's history.

Structure

The SEAMA is comprised of three branches: Quorum, the Executive, and the Supreme Court. The chair acts as the executive leader of the SEAMA while the Supreme Court enforces law.

Quorum

Quorum is the main assembly, where members discuss and vote on motions. The Quorum sessions frequently held by Chair if he/she wanted to.

Executive

The executive is led by the chair and vice-chair. The chair is the SEAMA's executive leader. Experienced delegates are elected for three-months term. They chair Quorum sessions, administer the Executive, and represent the organisation. The chair is also often involved in diplomatic conflict resolution.

The first official inaugural chair was the SEAMA's founder, Azwariq Qadri of Subejia

Supreme Court

The Supreme Court is the SEAMA's judicial body. The court's most senior judge is the supreme justice, who is elected by Quorum for four-month terms. The Court is administered by a registrar, who is currently Azwariq Qadri, the office's inaugural holder.

The supreme justice is second-only in power to the chair, and their responsibilities extend beyond hearing cases. They serve as the SEAMA's chief legal officer, and often advise Quorum and the Executive. The supreme justice can veto unlawful Quorum motions and any charter amendment. In certain cases, they can unilaterally demote members, expell observers, reject applicants, and suspend delegates.

The Court's main business is issuing non-binding advisory opinions. Anyone can file a reference with the Court, asking for guidance on specific legal questions.

The Court also deals with civil claims. Only one recent case, which is Han Raya Empire v. United Republic of Flopge.[a], but later dismissed by the Registrar.

Members and observers

The SEAMA's membership includes members and observers. Members and observers send up to three delegates, who can contribute to discussions and debates. Only delegates for full members can vote and stand for election.

Observers send just one delegate who can observe proceedings and join in discussions in the lounge, but cannot speak in Quorum sessions. Observership must be renewed every two months (by notice to the chair), or it expires.
