As of December 2010, the Nation of Amandium, now a member of both the Micronational Professional Registry (MPR) and the United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA), had a Population of 435. Oh yes, Amandium is certainly material for a future new top-level domain (TLD) in the Cesidian Root!
Well, recently the population exploded, and is now 715…
How did this happen? Well, the Royal Kingdom of Eesha, an agrarian micronation in India, was incorporated into Amandium.
HRH Lord Sir Rajasethuramavarna will maintain suzerainty over his subjects, and will be treated with equal standing compared with other Royal dignitaries in the other incorporated entities of Amandium, and HRH Amando I gets a micronation on steroids in population growth terms!
Has the age of micronational mergers begun? Is a new, more positive, less self-important form of micronationalism beginning to form? Well, one can only hope. A little more cooperation, a little more work together on common goals, certainly does help the micronational cause, and will make us all stronger and less dependent on the powers that be in the end.
