KINGSTOWN (CS) | The Commonwealth of Vyktory has established formal diplomatic relations with several Micras micronations, as it seeks to expand its presence beyond the MicroWiki community.
The foray into diplomacy with the Simulationist community is largely focused on the Bastion Union group of micronations, with recognition being granted to Craitland, Natopia and Shireroth. In making the announcement, President James-Robert Knight noted that the recognition of those micronations represented a starting point. “I’d have recognised more, but I didn’t want to stir the pot too much,” said Knight.
Shirerithian Minister of the Exterior, Stellus Yastreb, welcomed the recognition, calling Vkytory’s increased involvement in Micras a positive move in ensuring the community’s “collective survival”.
Established earlier this year, Vyktory was originally a secessionist micronation of the MicroWiki Community, having declared its independence from Australia on July 6. By the end of September, it began associating more closely with the Simulationist community upon lodging a successful claim with the Micronational Cartography Society that created the “Virtual Dependency” of Vyktoryan Micras. It has since become a member of the Fédération Micraise de Sport (FMS) and the Standardised Currency and Unified Economy (SCUE) Micras-based organizations.
