The World Union (abbreviated WU in English) was an international organization of secessionist micronations consisting of multiple different nations located all over the world. It was founded by Nico Fors in October 2012 under the idea of peace and equality between nations. The organization has a policy to accept all membership applications, with the only pre-requisite being to have at least one claim on Earth, although members are permitted have virtual or extraterrestrial claims. The WU has currently 14 full members and 8 observers. The WU has 2 prominent subcomponent organizations, the BC Union and the Micronational Peace Group. The union dissolved on April 14, 2013 after the formation of the Association of Prolific Micronations.

Etymology

The name "World Union" was adopted as the official name of the Union on its date of establishment in late 2012. The name World Union comes from the fact that its foundation goal was to replace the United Nations. Its name in Turkish was "Dünya Birliği" and its name in Finnish was "Maailman Unioni".

History

Establishment and early years

The World Union was established in 2012 in order to maintain international peace and promote cooperation in solving international economic, social and humanitarian problems, mainly at a micronational level. The term was first officially used on 7 October 2012, when the Union was officially founded. The first Consul elections of WU were held in November 2012 and saw Austin Rowe from La Villa become the first elected consul of the World Union. Sean O'Ruiarc, leader of Arkto Imperio (later Mangdublah), was elected the President of the WU later that year.

The WU was small and inactive until 2013, when many nations such as Hasanistan and Mouzilo joined. The inactive members of the World Union were removed as the union became more active. The first meetings of the General Assembly took place on 20 January 2013, with representatives from all members and observers present.

On 3 January 2013, the Micronational Peace Group was founded by Hasan Çakar and Manu II. The MPG served a similar purpose to the UN Security Council and UN peacekeeping missions. On 11 February 2013, Manu II of Mouzilo was elected as the WU Prime Minister he got 6 of 12, beating Hasan Çakar of Hasanistan and Lothian of Lyonesse. On 22 January 2013, the Templar Council and the Iberian Union joined the World Union.

Criticism

Since its creation, there has been controversy and criticism of the World Union. In the micronational community, an early 2013, It was disputed mainly on Wikia by some users, and Plaktukai goverment even announced when they left WU that the full Union was only way for the founder to get all the control over the Earth. Wich was an Huge misunderstading, mainly caused of the seats Niclogian President and the Prime Minister of WU gave to some Autonomous areas inside Niclogia, Wich were not controlled by him.
