Is it worth joining?

Yes. GUM is very effective and professional organisation. Their current interesting project is “Sister Cities Program”.

I heard bad words about GUM, what to do?

That is something totally normal, everyone has opinion, it can be negative or positive. Hovewer, Kingdom’s Voice suggests first researching deeply into organisation’s functions.

I am rejected, what to do?

Find your mistakes, try to fix them and become professional and reapply for one month, if you are banned, take that time for establishing diplomatic relations with it’s members.

Do MicroWiki Admins opress free speech?

In recent days, a lot of people have started with complains about MicroWiki Admins because of “free speech opression”, but, is that true? Are they opressing free speech? Let us explain. MicroWiki is not a public forum, it is private forum. Public forums are not centered and there is full freedom of speech and right to do what person wants to do, becaue it is a public forum, there are no certain requirements to be part of public forum. Private forum, on other side, are more closed, private forums are private. That means that one person can’t do something that does not follow the rules, if the rule is “No swearing”, there should be no swearing, public forums do not have rules. Opressing free speech differs with rules, opressing free speech is not allowing individual to say something, on other side, rules are limiting free speech to not cause drama and problems. Main difference between those two is that opression does not allow different opinion, rules allow different opinion, but they are limiting way we want to express it. Saying that MicroWiki admins opress free speech is not correct. When person opresses, people who he opresses, need to follow his opression, and behind that opression is certain threat, when person opresses, they are doing that for their own “benefit”. Rules are not like that, rules are here to keep peace and to stop drama and problems, there is no certain threat when person breaks rules, person who breaks them are warned to follow the rules.

What if I don’t want to follow rules?

You can leave, no one is silling you to be in private forum. Avoid themes that are not allowed in that private forum, is it so hard?

But I want to defend/attack individual, how can I do that?

Ask admins if you have right, if you are going to publish anything, be unbiased and use facts.

Why admins do not allow me to publish my article?

Because your article is probably biased, or insulting, or talks about theme that is not allowed in that private forum, if admin does not allow you to publish your article because his opinion does not meets with yours, ask another admin to allow you or ask forum owner.

I feel that my free speech is opressed, what do I do?

Follow the rules or leave forum, as said, if you do not agree with rules, leave the forum. Your free speech is not opressed nor attacked, your speech is limited because of keeping peace.

Is there democracy in Brienia?

Kingdom of Brienia is totally liberal and democratic, those are one of our founding principles. But, Kingdom of Brienia was not always democratic. From beggining, Kingdom of Brienia was based on Tehnocracy, system of government in which voters were selected by their talents and knowledge. Kingdom of Brienia became democracy after the Classic War that occured as an result of making, then, Obador tehnocratic. After it, Monoslavia became democracy, Christian Democracy. After Obador got all of Monoslavia, democracy was abolished. But, as micronations like Pretorsia and Northern Union continued with striking Obador, Obador has fallen, a lot of duchies leaving it and loosing support from allies, Grand Kingdom of Obador was created which had full democratic system with Grand King having no political power (constitutional monarchy), that idea wasn’t really nice to monarch, so, government of Grand Kingdom of Obador has fallen once and for all times. On 22th August 2019, Grand Duchy of Ermenstein was created, but, this time, as an absolute elective monarchy, with a lot of democracy, but, democracy in meaning of liberalism, citizens couldn’t vote. But, after some time, Brienia changed it’s government to Absolute Hereditarian Monarchy with Liberalism and Democracy, and citizens could vote. After long time, Brienia finally became Kingdom of Brienia with few “Liberalization acts”(act of giving more freedom), so Brienia became liberal Christian democracy with no secular system of government. But, in January 2020, there was debate on returning to tehnocracy. The thing was stoped and rejected by King due to micronational community calling him dictator and tyrant.

Why did Ethan Brown changed his nation?

Micronations sometimes change, will it be flag, coat of arms of government, that is on them to decide, it is totally normal for nation to change once or twice in two months. There was one case where leader, Ethan Brown, now Brever, changed his nation’s identity every week.

When Principality of Brienia joined Micronational Twitter, The Holy Christian Republic of Braunland acted very kindly and Principality of Brienia, then Ultimative Monoslavian Kingdom, saw The Holy Christian Republic of Braunland as good friend and ally, on the end they turned out to be completly evil, non-Christian and unprofessional nation, with their leader becoming atheist and starting Kaissereich of Adlersland and becoming secular. Before it, there were a lot of Braunland nations, and unfortunately, those are his nations from April 2019 to May 2019:

-Christian Braunland

-Republic of Braunland

-Christian Tsenkyo

-Ivanist Tsenkyo

-Monarchist Tsenkyo

-Ivanist Tsenkyo #2

-Fitzish state

-Ruhmland

-Fascist Ruhmland

-Gottia

-Mendoza

-Dominion of Tzimiske

-Proposed Molossian teritorry

-Proposed Sealandian teritorry

-People’s Republic of Braunland

-Proposed Westarctican teritorry

Keep in mind that this is only from April of 2019 to May 2019. His micronationalism ended on 1st of October 2019 by sexually harrasing his friend’s girlfriend.

Reason he changed his nation that often is: he was bored

He was bored, he though that he made everything he could for nation, even though he didn’t, he didn’t established ministry of foreign affairs, ministries, he didn’t organized his government, and he was bored with his nation, so he restarted Braunland always. Thank you for Attention.
