Transantarctic Supramicronational Union
|Transantarctic Supramicronational Alliance
|Membership||4 member nations|
|Foundation||March 11, 2020|
The Transantarctic Supramicronational Alliance (TSA) is an intermicronational alliance between several Antarctic micronations. The organization implements the Transantarctic Supramicronational Alliance Treaty that had its first ratifications signed and exchanged on 11 March 2020. TSA constitutes a system of collective defense whereby its independent member states agree to mutual defense in response to an attack by any external party. The participant micronations have common policies on product regulation, freedom of movement of goods, a common external trade policy and a common passport standard.
The TSA was officially established on March 11th, 2020 as an alliance of several micronations with claims on the Antarctic continent. The beginning of 2020 manifested itself with a need for a micronational organization which would:
- Effectively monitor the political situation in the Antarctic area, individual/national/micronational activities on the continent and global continental processes of both natural and human character.
- Have an election based rotary management (with elections held every year).
- Be easy contactable by both solicited and unsolicited individuals and organizations.
- Have a diplomatic approach towards new parties as opposed to a forward sanctionary approach.
- Provide a clear stance on new continental claims (with a brief history of Antarctic micronationalism) to upcoming Antarctic micronations or micronations with intent of claiming any Antarctic territory.
- Add geopolitical balance to current Antarctic micronationalism making it multilateral.
Involvement in Antarctic conflicts
- On June 22, 2020 Abrahamia claimed territories of several Antarctic micronations and declared "war" on the Transantarctic Supramicronational Alliance. The "war" ended on the same day after being handled via diplomatic channels and claims being renounced.
- On November 2, 2020 the Conflict over the Drygalski Island was handled with Lukland publicly announcing that it gave up its claims of the island to Brienia.
