We, the undersigned leaders of the Antarctic micronations, organizations and new nation projects decisively condemn the actions of the so-called “United Republics of Antarctica”, who claimed to be the successor of the Antarctic Micronational Union (AMU) and communicate on their website that several micronations such as Flandrensis, Westarctica, Karnia-Ruthenia and Lostisland gave up their sovereignty and work under the URA.
None of the entities we represent bear any connection whatsoever with this micronation, and we call on Vasia Bratchuk and other people associated with it to immediately remove the mentions of us from their website. We will take all the necessary measures to protect our sovereignty and intellectual property.
We furthermore ask the micronational community and our friends and partners to ignore any communication or request for diplomatic relations from the URA.
As this is the third attempt since 2016, the former AMU members have started a debate to prevent future violations of our sovereignty and the abuse of our name and reputation.
His Excellency, Yaroslav Mar, President for Life of the Federal Republic of Lostisland
His Royal Highness, Travis, Grand Duke of Westarctica
His Imperial and Royal Majesty, Oscar, Emperor-King of Karnia-Ruthenia
The Conference of Persenburg was held in frequent, scheduled sessions from 16 to 18 January 2019. The conference was held via Internet, in a Facebook discussion group to overcome obstacles of time and distance. The Conference aimed to discuss economy within the Lusophone sector of micronationalism, studying cases and exposing several topics of discussion, exploring the examples in process among the invited micronations.
On 14 January, the first theme of the day was “Micronational Economy: Feasibility”. Representatives of Deltaria, Manso, Villa Alicia and Karnia-Ruthenia participated in the discussion. There was an intense exchange of experiences, especially on the creation of companies in the micronational sector, with emphasis on the Manseans advances.
The second debate was “Economic Framework: Practical and Legal Aspects”. Representatives of Deltaria, Manso, Villa Alicia and Karnia-Ruthenia participated in the discussion. This discussion was marked by the exchange of experiences of the representatives, with special attention to the economic practice between the involved ones and the diminutive legislation on the subject in Deltaria.
On 15 January, the first theme of the day was “Utilization and Ballast: of the Applications and the Value of the Micronational Currency”. Representatives of Deltaria, Manso and Karnia-Ruthenia participated in the discussion. Innovative measures were discussed to replace ballast, which in practice was less widespread in the micronational medium as a practical concept and foreign micronations and their established ballasts were mentioned.
The second debate was “Cryptocurrencies and the Mining Process for Micronationalism”. Representatives of Deltaria, Manso and Karnia-Ruthenia participated in the discussion. It was shown that few micronations made use of cryptocurrencies, as an expensive alternative and with few successful examples in the middle, although it was definitely an option.
On 16 January, the first theme of the day was “On the standards of ballast and conversion: economic integration tool?”. Representatives of Manso and Karnia-Ruthenia participated in the discussion. The Mansean conversion alternative was presented; an innovative method with analysis by means of algorithms that would measure activity as a means to convert this variable as value of a micronational currency. Posteriorly, the “Betism”, a economic theory developed by Rafael Campos, Ministry of Economy of Deltaria, was also presented. A suggestion of support for the Nazi-fascist cause on the part of a Deltarian citizen who inspired the theory caused a discomfort with the hosts, making it impossible to continue the appreciation of the theory.
The second debate was “National Banks and Reserves and their relevance in micronational government.”. Representatives of Deltaria, Mauricia, Villa Alicia and Karnia-Ruthenia participated in the discussion. The delegations demonstrated a special peculiarity in this topic, each one having developed very particular methods, mostly refined, with special attention to the procedures adopted by Villa Alicia and Mauricia, the most complex.
The third debate was “Stock Exchange: national or sectoral?”. Representatives of Deltaria, Mauricia and Karnia-Ruthenia participated in the discussion. Partial interest in the establishment of a national stock exchange was shown to the detriment of one for the whole sector due to the lack of micronational activity and the unpopularity that legislation and regulation on the subject used to cause.
On 17 January, for the last day of debates, the first theme of the day was “Economic integration: paths in Lusophone sector”. Representatives of Deltaria, Villa Alicia and Karnia-Ruthenia participated in the discussion. It was found that despite many possible plans, the creation of an entity or body that professed common economic interests would be desirable and would be an instrument to promote economic integration.
The second debate was “Economic activity as an incentive mechanism to the activity”. Representatives of Manso, the Reich, Mauricia and Karnia-Ruthenia participated in the discussion. The highlight was the Maurensian activity, which merges mercantile elements into government activity, forcing the public machine to “pay for activity”, in a system unique to micronationalism in any linguistic sector, there being no parallel case and constituting this in pride of the Lusophone sector.
On 18 January, the last day of the event, the day was reserved for discussions on the development of partnerships and closure of the event, with the distribution of a commemorative medal to celebrate the first organized economic event in the Empire.
Onn 07 August 2009, following the common rite of the micronations created in Brazil, which were intended to be historical-modelist micronations, Oscar I founded the “Kingdom of Montenegro“, which lasted two days and was abandoned by its founder, whose micronational trajectory moved away from historical-modelist system and led him to the Imperial Throne, ruling the Empire in a story begun with the Kingdom of Ruthenia in 2014, after involvement with minor micronations since 2009.
However, nine years have passed and the project that was His Imperial and Royal Majesty’s first step in micronationalism was restored and reorganized in the now Kingdom of Eslavija.
The kingdom was refounded in a statement that a state of Slav culture must have an indivisible and unitary territory, ruled by a constitutional and parliamentary monarchy, recognizing Slavic languages and their cultures as equals, as well as the Latin and Cyrillic alphabet, and Orthodoxy, Catholicism and Islam, religions practiced by most Slavs, recognized as official and protected by the state. Moreover, it defends the equality and freedom of citizens regardless of their origins, beliefs and individual options.
A second document was issued, ordering the restructuring of the state, establishing the Eslavija, the restoration of the former king to the throne and that this be transmitted to the other micronations and to the Emperor-King, who, if he wished, accept the throne.
The affirmative answer came exactly nine years after the founding of the proto-state which originated in Eslavija. However, conditions were imposed on both sides. On the part of the Eslavijan government, the imposition is that the kingdom never would be absorbed by the Empire. On the part of the restored king, is that his reign would be provisional, with the intention of organizing the state, preserve its history and appoint a worthy successor for the future. Both sides accepted these conditions.
Although the separation between Eslavija and Karnia-Ruthenia is assured, the Empire gains a zone of influence next to the projects of the Lusophone sector of micronationalism.
The Congress of St. Louis, hosted by the Grand Republic of Delvera, is a event to be held in frequent, scheduled sessions from 04 to 25 August 2018, via Internet remotely, to overcome obstacles of time and distance among its members. The purpose of the event is to promote rules of conduct relating to conflict resolution and to promote intermicronational economic standards, which would be codified at the Congress, yet enforced by respective nations separately. The Congress wasn’t to be a permanent organization, but rather an event.
The first session took place on 04 August, The Karno-Ruthenian and Delveran delegations were present. The Fristehenian and Dewaconian delegations did not attend the meeting. The meeting, apart of introductory remarks, was the discussion of the pending articles of the 2018 Intermicronational Convention on War, specifically weapons, personal protection, and training. Because only a few delegations were present, the talks did not go too far. The Karno-Ruthenian delegation asked for time to analyze the text, having discussed in principle its effectiveness, being persuaded by the Delverans, since the intent of the document was to establish standards whereby a physical micronational war could take place within the scope of what a micronation is and without violating macronational law.
During the session, was recommended the establishment of the Committee on Economic Development, the Committee on Truces and Prisoners of War and Committee on Economic Warfare.
The second session of the Congress of St. Louis was scheduled for 11 August
The 2018 Micronational Summit of São Paulo was the second summit of heads of states and governments of the Lusophone Sector of micronationalism. This summit, as the previous that happened in 2016, intended to promote the practice of micronationalism and bring together the leaders of the already established micronations.
The meeting was attended by the Emperor-King and Empress of Karnia-Ruthenia, Count Lucas of Orange, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the United Provinces of Mauricia and Kaiser Wilhelm III and the Count Ferdinand of Vyšehrad of the Império Alemão, a simulationist and historical-modelist micronation.
Despite the difference between the micronational projects that attended the summit, three historical-modelists, which are the predominant genre in the Lusophone Sector, and the realist-derivatist represented by Karnia-Ruthenia, the meeting found several points of convergence that made the summit a resounding diplomatic success between the participants.
Subjects discussed between the parties dealt with diplomacy in the Lusophone sector in a broad aspect, comparisons on micronational practices in different countries, international cooperation and citizen interchange to strengthen ties and share technologies and information, as well as micronational economics and market dynamics.
There was also the awarding of the commemorative medals of the event to the participants and of the Order of St. Peter by Karnia-Ruthenia and of the Maurense Order of the Golden Fleece by the United Provinces of Mauricia.
Facing the cohesion of the participants, other issues of the meeting are expected to occur in 2018.
His Imperial and Royal Majesty, the Emperor-King, received the news of the death of His Royal Majesty, King Michael of Romania early this morning.
A model of behavior and attitude, King Michael reigned with faith and confidence in his mission in one of the most terrible moments of the last century. The last King of Romania personally contributed decisively to shortening the Second World War, saving hundreds of thousands of Romanian civilians and potentially tens or even hundreds of thousands of Romanian and Soviet soldiers, ensuring that the Allied victory would come much more quickly.
An historical injustice perpetrated by Communists and traitors removed him from the throne, but could never erase his history. After the fall of communism, the King showed his devotion to its Nation, proving that he always was at the service of his country, always in service of the Romanian nation, with inspiring dignity.
May God receive this King of the Romanians: an exceptional man and a dignifying example of what a monarch must be, a public man and an honorable servant of the fatherland. We send our condolences to the Royal Family and to the Romanian People.
