On 14 August 2009, the Micronational Professional Registry (MPR) has enacted a new policy: any sovereign state recognised by the MPR that ends up on the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom’s (USCIRF) list of “Countries of Particular Concern” (CPC) — the US government’s designation for countries with ongoing, egregious violations of religious freedom — shall cease to be recognised by the MPR. Sovereign states on the CPC list that were not already recognised, shall automatically become natio non grata, and shall be treated like nations on the MPR’s Certified Terrorist Nations (CTN) εν list.
Current states on the CPC list:
- North Korea
- Saudi Arabia
Current nations on the MPR’s CTN list:
- Kingdom of EnenKio
It should be noted that the MPR recognises a free Burma, and the people or nation of Burma, not the Myanmar government, or the National Coalition Government of the Union of Burma (NCGUB). These latter two entities have no relations with the MPR. All Micronational Professional Registry recognition is de facto, not de jure.
The following nations recognise all states, nations, and other entities that the MPR recognises in a de facto manner: 1) Independent Long Island (ILI); 2) the United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA); and 3) TTF-Bucksfan. MPR member nations are not obliged to follow the MPR in their foreign policy, although some nations/organisations have supported similar policies in the past. MPR members that wish to begin to follow similar policies to the MPR can contact the Hon Most Rev Dr Cesidio Tallini at his contact page below:
Besides being an international professional registry, the MPR is a serious unrecognised government organisation (SUGO). It also issues independent intellectual property instruments such as Print Monopolies (PM), Enterprise Names (εν), Enterprise Marks (εμ), and MPR Patents (π). So far, two books with valid individual International Standard Book Numbers (ISBN) have been published with the MPR’s Print Monopoly (PM) standard, including the book, The Fifth World: Micronationalism on Steroids.
This policy towards “Countries of Particular Concern” (CPC) is the only policy in which the MPR is practically in sync with the policy of a foreign government. The MPR is not a governmental organisation, but a nongovernmental organisation with special functions.
