Foreign Relations

The Iceni Empire prides itself on being an outward-looking nation and pursuing diplomatic relations with a diverse range of nations. Its Foreign Policy is quite straightforward in keeping with its professional policies.

  • The micronation must be at least 1 year old and not drastically changed their form of governance in the last 6 months.
  • The micronation must have a website with clear and truthful information (population, goals, territory).
  • The micronation must exist in real life: countries with a fictional history, population, or claims on virtual maps of imaginary worlds on the internet is not micronationalism but geofiction.

If a micronation does not adhere to these three points then recognition and indeed bilateral relations cannot take place. The Iceni Kingdom endeavours to expand its sphere to influence within the community using bilateral relations and its voice within international organisations. They aim to sign treaties of friendship and mutual recognition and forge ever closer relationships with their existing allies.

John Gordon in his capacity as Secretary of State and President has undertaken state visits to Dorzhabad and Empire of Austenasia and has met with many micronational leaders face to face.

Diplomatic Relations

The Kingdom establishes and maintains diplomatic relations with other nations through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, led by the Foreign Minister. The Foreign Minister has the power to grant "states of friendship" and tacit recognition, but official recognition of another nation can only be granted by Parliament or Royal Decree.
