APRIL 20, 2022 – The Department of State of the Commonwealth of Dracul has ceased the online application process for micronations wishing to establish mutual recognition with Dracul. Prior to this decision, micronational leaders had the ability to apply for recognition on Draculgov.com, if they met the requirements outlined by the Department of State.
The decision was made by the Office of the President, in conjunction with Secretary of State Valeriano Anibarro, during a phone conference on April 19, 2022. Both offices felt this was a necessary move, due to various issues that come with mutual recognition.
The primary reason for this decision was based on how President Luke explained it, which was due to the fact that most micronations that receive recognition usually disappear, without further contact with the mutual micronation. At times, micronations will not continue to pursue additional steps, such as trade agreements, alliances, or mutual projects to better one another’s nation.
Recognition will now be offered by Dracul on a case by case basis, to micronations who show a continued interest, such as support in campaigns, projects, alliances, and longevity. This is a similar practice carried out by other micronations, such as Molossia and Westarctica.
Micronations that are currently recognized will be evaluated this week on the basis of shown continued interest, communication, and support. Those who do not make the cut will lose recognition.
