Ambassadors to other micronational entities?
« on: September 23, 2021, 04:30:00 PM »
Has the Kingdom ever had ambassadors to various other micronational entities, such as:

http://www.molossia.org/ founded 1977

http://atlantium.org/ founded 1981

https://conchrepublic.com/ founded 1982

https://www.ladonia.org/ founded 1996 (history back to 1980)

etc.

also,

Has anyone attended a previous MicroCon (next scheduled for 2022) https://micronations.wiki/wiki/MicroCon_2022 ?

Talossa had a few diplomatic exchanges with other micronations before 1998, which is when King Robert I decided all micronations except Talossa were a threat and went full "North Korea" in the micronational arena. (I flatter myself that I and the Penguinean rebels made him do that.) It has been only recently that this xenophobic legacy has started to be rolled back. The Foreign Minister could tell you more about recent interactions with other micronations.

I believe way back when KR1 wrote to the Hutt River Province Principality and they just tried to sell him stamps.

The foreign minister is here to answer your questions:

Our current policy plans include sending a delegate to attend mico-con 2022 (set to be held in las vegas) for which we will work alongside the civil service to aid us in the appointment.

We have begun our diplomatic outreach to a number of the stated nations, however, this is a somewhat recent development and have yet to receive any response to hails. 

Within the month we will open applications for consulships within our maco-national for which we have active members to act as diplomatic representatives on behalf of Talossa across the world. These consols are will be tasked with aiding is the distribution of Talossan documentation. Each will be assigned to a regional ambassador who will focus efforts across continents they reside in.

Micro-national ambassadors shall be appointed as and when we receive correspondence form other micronations.

I have organized conferences in Las Vegas (Game Show Congress, Trivia Championships of North America) and also assisted with the 2019 TriviaNationals there.  I sent a note to the organizers of MicroCon to see if they need assistance - I have reference to contracts and contacts at the Tropicana which is a mid-size property that could work well since they have not selected a location or a timeframe as of yet.

In fact the MicroWiki indicates "The Kingdom of Talossa is a small and unrecognized nation, which previously referred to itself as a micronation for many years, but this term is now officially eschewed. Its current head of state is John Woolley as King John I."

so perhaps we need to ask @King John to change this by proclamation, or put something in the hopper to "un-eschew" the term?

I would absolutely be in favor of re-adopting the "micronation" tag! I think it is important to the micronational community.

This would be rolling back more than 20 years of Talossan precedent!.... But sure, why not, if the Foreign Minister agrees, take it to Cabinet. It would require an amendment of El Lexhatx A.9.1.4 which specifically defines "micronations" to exclude this Kingdom.
