A quantum micronational leap

In the beginning the Gods created the micronations and the micronational community.

For some time there was neither a real micronation (think of Nutopia), nor a real micronational community (think of the Conch Republic’s Fifth World community, where they are the only Fifth World country), but eventually a few micronations evolved, and even several, not one, micronational communities.

Eventually some micronations distinguised themselves from others. Sealand became the territorial micronation par excellence; the UMMOA started a real Internet, and then even managed to expand it to three continents; the Principality of Vikesland literally went into orbit; Wirtland had the good sense to make real money, a lot more real than the money of the so-called ‘real’ world, and issued a gold coin; and the Empire of Atlantium even got mentioned by a news agency, just as only macronations like Vermont and Texas had managed to do in the past.

Despite all these developments, however, the Wikipedia kept calling micronations ‘eccentric’ and ‘ephemeral’ in nature, while secession and self-determination movements were treated as more tangible, since allegedly maintained by groups larger than a single person or family group.

Making matters even more discouraging, while some micronations really went forward, and in many different ways, micronational organisations were much ado about nothing.

Well, on 26 May 2011, that feature of micronationalism became part of the definitive past. On that date, even a micronational organisation went seriously forward, when a prince joined the Micronational Professional Registry.

What kind of prince are we mentioning here? A real prince. In fact, this prince was made a prince by H.R.H. Don Francesco Nicola Roberto Paternò Castello of the Royal House of Aragon, carrier of the house’s dynastic rights as jus majestatis and jus honorum.

Since that development, the Wikipedia’s article has become about as descriptive of micronationalism, as much as Saudi Arabia is a model of democracy. Even smart and perceptive micronationalists can no longer recognise micronationalism, because it seems to be materialising into something a lot greater than even the most incurable optimist could have foreseen.

The “Smoke and Mirrors” Sovereign States

The field of secession and/or micronationalism, Fourth and Fifth World Studies if you will, is full of cynical statists like the author of the article below:

Fictional Sovereignties
http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/opinon/2009/08/160_50544.html

It is also full of romantic nationalists, like the author of this article:

Is Secession Anarchy, Treason, and Un-American?
http://secessionuniversity.com/2009/09/02/is-secession-anarchy/

The few people in the middle who are neither cynical statists, nor romantic nationalists, but matter-of-fact political scientists who can demonstrate their theories, and even back them with elegant models in the form of equations like the author of the article below, don’t receive any support:

If some of the strongest Fourth World nations such as Texas are “fictional sovereignties”, then how come a secessionist rally of a mere 200 people required the concerted effort of at least 10 different Examiner.com articles against secession, and this does not include the overwhelming negative mass media bias from all the other news outlets?

I have not read a single mass media article in favour of secession so far, nor have I read a single article of neutral, fact-finding “investigative journalism”. In the mass media secession or micronationalism topics are either treated like lunacy, viewed as illegitimate, viewed as a “settled with the US Civil War” issues, or are somehow viewed as anti-American. Where is the research that proves this? I don’t see any real journalism; I only see ad hominem attacks on secessionists, if not articles designed to outright defame them.

If First World states are not “smoke and mirrors” sovereign states today, have not themselves become “banana republics” as socioeconomic problems have multiplied, and they fiddled their thumbs promoting the interests of the few, rather than the many as their public positions morally and legally required, then how come they no longer have any control of the economy anymore?

What happened to wholesome democratic values, the separation of church and state no longer practiced since churches have begun to be pressured to seek incorporation? What happened to US state sovereignty supposedly sanctioned by the Tenth Amendment? Is it just just a form of “clipped sovereignty”, where the federal government retains only certain powers, or has the federal government of the United States in fact turned US states that where originally sovereign into colonies, American empire colonies no longer even capable of maintaining minimum economic standards for their citizens?

What happened to Freedom of Speech supposedly sanctioned under the First Amendment, but now only the exclusive property of mass media monopoly? Why has the US government not intervened to break up monopolies here? What about the US state governments? What have they done to ensure a reasonably free and diverse public discourse?

Finally, what happened to the separation of state and citizen roles, something never mentioned even by the US’s brightest legal scholars, where the state(s) retain(s) only certain (public) rights, and none of these rights should be construed to deny or disparage other (private) rights retained by the people, including the right to make a living, the right to run one’s life as one pleases, something supposedly sanctioned under the Ninth Amendment?

What happened to such a promising economic system as capitalism? Where are all the jobs our healthy and apparent “First World” economy is supposed to have?

What is the media trying to hide? They are certainly not examining these issues with any credible journalism. Why instead of informing, or even trying to inform, do they engage in a campaign of disinformation whenever secession or micronationalism is mentioned? Who do these puppets work for, these organisations who would like everyone to believe they exist to “inform the public”, to “protect democracy”, and who is actually pulling their strings? What makes the work of the American media in this field any different or superior to the propaganda generated by the media of the former Soviet Union?

Is the United States a First World country anymore, or is it a Banana Republic? Are current UN members genuinely sovereign states, or “smoke and mirrors” sovereign states? Is the corporate mass media part of the solution to these problems, or is it only another industry protecting its turf, even at the expense of its mission statement lately?

The Fifth World

The Fifth World

The Micronational Professional Registry (MPR) announces that the book, The Fifth World: Micronationalism on Steroids (ISBN10: 1448663539; EAN13: 9781448663538), has been published on 8 August 2009.

The author of the book is the Hon Most Rev Dr Cesidio Tallini, President of the MPR, and the book was published by CreateSpace. It is the result of over six months of research and writing, and based on the author’s more than a decade of experience.

This is a book about advanced micronationalism, Fifth World mythology, and nation-building.

After an introductory description of the First, Second, and Third Worlds (the Official World), the author goes on to also describe the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Worlds (secessionist groups, irredentist groups, and micronations).

The author describes how the Fifth World began; gives growth strategies for micronations; mentions the legalities of micronations; talks about the new (and real) Indigo race; discusses the mythology of the Fifth World under a Native American, Theosophical, and Christian perspective; and finally, mentions micronation building and branding strategies, micronational etymology, and polycentric law.

This book is not another travel guide to micronations, but about what it takes to build a reasonably successful micronation. It is also more than just a how-to guide, since the book uncovers at least two new discoveries in the field of political science. A profound and meaningful book, it will make a great and memorable gift, especially for young readers.

Micronationalism becomes protoscience

When Cesidio Tallini began theorising about the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Worlds, people didn’t take his work seriously, including many micronationalists. The academic world was already abandoning the Official World trinity of First, Second, and Third Worlds as some kind of Cold War relict.

After a few years, however, many began to accept Tallini’s theories as a little more than speculation or convenient convention. Somehow, somewhere, the theories made sense.

In reality, the terms First, Second, and Third World can be best understood through the 2007 Human Development Index (HDI) map, where blue countries correspond roughly with the modern First World, yellow countries with the modern Second World, and red countries with the modern Third World.

So countries like Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and the United States can be considered First World nations.

Countries like Albania, Myanmar, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Venezuela and Vietnam can be considered Second World nations.

Finally, countries like Bangladesh, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Kenya, Laos, Mozambique, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Yemen, and Zimbabwe can be considered Third World nations. The differences between these three worlds are entirely economic, not juridical. In the Official World, the differences between the First and Third Worlds are largely economic, since the level of de jure sovereignty is constant throughout.

The Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth World, on the other hand, according to independent scholars not living in cloistered and warm academic towers, comprises nations without fully recognised states, and thus outside of the United Nations. In the Non-Official World, the differences are largely juridical, not economic, since there is a great deal of variation in the level of de facto sovereignty.

At one end of the Non-Official World, a Fourth World nation is a medium- to large-sized nation without a significantly recognised state. Fourth World nations, whether old or new, with many supporters or few, always have or claim a substantial territory. The term Fourth World nation can be used interchangeably with the term self-determination or secessionist group.

At other end of the Non-Official World spectrum, a Sixth World nation is a small nation, usually based on the Internet. The term Sixth World nation can be used interchangeably with the term micronation, although it was discovered that most micronations don’t actually fall under this category.

A Fifth World nation, on the other hand, is a small nation with a strong and established national identity. The Fifth World can be either territorial or virtual, ethnic or non-ethic, so it is actually midway in characteristics between the Fourth and Sixth Worlds. A Fifth World nation is a mature micronation. The term Fifth World nation can be used interchangeably with the term social identity or irredentist group.

These are fine ideas, of course, but they were little more than speculation until yesterday, when Tallini starting writing a charter for a new international organisation that is slowly coming to life. It was while writing this charter that Tallini stumbled upon a few novel ideas that more accurately and more sequentially define Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth World nations.

This morning, Tallini gave the new idea a more solid foundation by combining empirical observations with sound mathematics. The n-result is the Tallini World Formula.

The Tallini World Formula is a third degree equation. When you input n into the equation, the world number, the Tallini World Formula allows you to calculate an, which is the number of world categories for the specific world number.

You can view the Tallini World Formula at the following link, along with a table of good practical examples:

http://mpr.cyberterra.net/official-and-non.html

There are indeed Sixth Worlds, as Tallini postulated in the past, and the Tallini World Formula shows that very clearly, and also gives the actual components of these sixth worlds.

Ladies and gentlemen, micronationalism as a subject may still be laughed at in most Official World cocktail parties. In reality, however, it is becoming a science.
