The United Micronations, founded on 2 October 2014 (not to be confused with numerous others of the same name), is an inter-Micronational organization. Its main objective is to organize world Micronations under one organization that can help the members to sustain peace, development, mutual recognition and common diplomatic affairs between them.
History and Timeline
The United Micronations has been officially established on 2 October 2014, by the People's Republic of Hashima and the United States of Antarctica. This second one left the UM on 20 November 2014, after its dissolution.
On 29 October 2015, the Democratic Republic of Belia unilaterally joined as 11th official member of the United Micronations. In the same day, the incumbent chairman of the United Micronations, Prince Fabrizio I of Hashima and Princess Enikő I of Hashima, expelled and banned the Democratic Republic of Belia from the organization, giving the following reason: "The Democratic Republic of Belia is expelled and banned from the United Micronations because its aggressive foreign politic that brought and still bring Belia in wars against other micronations. If the Democratic Republic of Belia wishes to join the United Micronations, it should end immediately every conflict and sign a formal treaty of neutrality against every other micronation. Plus, the Democratic Republic of Belia should contact the office of the United Micronations, through the official email address, requiring a formal procedure for joining the organization, due to the bellicose behavior kept from Belia, and sign a treaty of no aggression against every micronation (especially official members of the United Micronations, but generally for every micronation active) and a treaty of demilitarization. Until that day, the Democratic Republic of Belia is banned from the United Micronations and not recognized as a Sovereign Entity."
On 5 November 2015, the Democratic Republic of Belia has been admitted as the 6th official member after that Belia joined the Union Against Micronational War and signed a treaty with the United Micronations (for reading it, go to "http://mw.micronation.org/w/images/7/73/Treaty_Belia-United_Micronations.pdf"). However, 6 days after (in 11 November 2015), the Democratic Republic of Belia, declaring war against ISIS, violated the Treaty that Belia itself approved and signed for being a peaceful and neutral member of the United Micronations, and for this has been expelled and banned forever from the Organization. Belia hasn't be expelled and banned because of the declaration of war, but because of the violation of the Treaty.
The first democratic elections for the Presidency of the United Micronations took place on 9 November 2015, and have been won by the Principality of Hashima, that has been confirmed to the Presidency for other 2 months.
However, on 17 November 2015, the Principality of Hashima resigned from the Presidency, in favor of the second most senior member, the Nationalist Republic of the North Atlantic. The Principality of Hashima, however, assigned to itself a perpetual seat inside the United Micronations and will continue inside the Organization covering the Vice-Presidency of it.
Elections for the Presidency
In 9 November 2015, the member states voted, for the first time, into a democratic election for the Presidency of the United Micronations.
This first election has been won by the Principality of Hashima, that was into the Presidency since the foundation of the UM, being the founder member.
The next elections are scheduled for 9 January 2015.
The United Micronations has also two special agencies:
- United Micronations Food and Agriculture Organization (tUM FAO)
- United Micronations International Justice Court (UM IJC)
The United Micronations Food and Agriculture Organization is an agency of the United Micronations that leads international efforts to defeat hunger. Serving both developed and developing countries, FAO acts as a neutral forum where all members meet as equals to negotiate agreements and debate policy.
FAO is also a source of knowledge and information and helps developing countries and countries in transition modernize and improve agriculture, forestry and fisheries practices, ensuring good nutrition and food security for all.
The United Micronations International Justice Court (UM IJC) is the primary judicial branch of the United Micronations.
Its main function is to settle legal disputes submitted to it by Micronations and private citizens.
How it works
Every member is free to send an email to the United Micronations, proposing a law or a pool to be applied in all the official members or discuss something of importance.
The United Micronations will answer to everyone with email (if possible) and update the official talk page of this article on MicroWiki and the official website, opening pools for a referendum between the members if a member proposed a law.
In case during the month there haven't been proposed laws, but only discussions, the United Micronations will update the official talk page of this article on MicroWiki and the official website, publishing the discussions, for the vision of every official member.
The Presidency of the United Micronations is rotatory, so every official member can aspire to it. The term of the rotatory presidency is 2 months.
The Presidency lasts exactly from 11 to 11 of two months (example: 11 January - 11 March); in the day of expiring of the Presidency, the newly incumbent President(s) will be/are announced.
Two days before the expiring of the incumbent Presidency (in 9th day of that month), a pool will be published to elect the newly incumbent President(s). Every member is obligated to vote for another member and not for themselves. The member that receives more votes will be elected as new President.
In case of two or more members with the same amount of votes, the day before the expiring of the incumbent Presidency (in 10th day of that month), a further pool will be published with a second ballot between the remaining members; still every member (also who doesn't run more for the Presidency) is required to vote, and to give its vote to another Micronation and not to itself.
The pool will be published into a new article on MicroWiki, with the following title: "Election DAY/MONTH/YEAR of the United Micronations' Presidency".
A table will be created, with the list of the members, and every member will need to edit its personal space writing the name of who it wants to elect.
