  • The National Progress Party (PNV) and the League for the 3rd Republic (L3R) have formed a new governing coalition for the Dutch micronation, reported the Flanders Post. The coalition affords President Mateo Mattiassen control over 45 of the total 50 seats in the lower legislative house, the Bondskamer, though he will still lack a majority in the upper house, the Statenraad. The coalition government will focus significantly on economic policy reform, including the introduction of an unconditional basic income and pushing for SCUE reforms. It also hopes to host a MicroWorld Economic Forum according to the article.
  • The playfully named Kingdom of Pooba is taking a more serious tone when it comes to foreign affairs, according to its King’s personal blog. The Kingdom set out its official foreign policy on March 29, which included a desire to obtain membership in Grand Unified Micronational along with alliance-building, as well as less peaceful thoughts of annexation using military force.
  • Austenasia celebrated its second visit by tourists in less than two weeks, read an article Austenasian Times. Following the March 21 visit of travel blog writer Jonny Blair, the micronation’s New South Scotland crown dependency, located at the University of New South Wales, was toured by three individuals, who took photographs and posed with the micronation’s flag.
