The Kingdom of Ruritania, as a courtesy, informally recognizes all micronations. However, if a micronation desires to establish formal diplomatic relations with the Kingdom of Ruritania, please contact the Office of the Foreign Ministry. The current Minister of Foreign Affairs is HSH Grand Duchess Lydia Sophia Tatianna Mortitia von Elphberg, she can be reached via email.
Please be aware of our requirements listed below:
The micronation requesting recognition must have been in existence for at least six months.
The micronation requesting recognition must have a website or Facebook page on which its pertinent information is listed. ( i.e. form of government, head of state, email address, general location, territorial claims, if any, etc.)
Ruritania WILL NOT form alliances or treat with any micronation which claims territory in Antarctica, at the bottom of the sea, or off of the planet Earth. The only exceptions will be micronations with which we have signed treaties before September 1st, 2012.
Ruritania WILL NOT form alliances or treat with any micronation claiming ALL of an inhabited territory not specifically owned by that micronation. ( i.e. Greenland, City of St.Louis, State of Texas, etc.)
Any alliances and treaties are subject to approval by the Crown of Ruritania.
If the requesting micronation meets these criteria, the Minister of Foreign Affairs will contact them and send a Treaty of Friendship and Recognition, signed by the reigning Monarch of Ruritania for the approval of that micronation. Upon signing this treaty, the requesting micronation will be declared a friend and ally of the Kingdom of Ruritania and receive the Most Favored Nation status. Ruritania will then add their name to the list of allies on our website with a link to their website and/or Facebook page. Should the requesting micronation reject the treaty for any reason, negotiations will cease. Should an accepted micronation ally embarrass or insult Ruritania or change its form of government, it will come under review and recognition may be rescinded.
If you should desire, we also have a Mutual Recognition Treaty to send by "Snail Mail".
