|Named after||Constantia Island|
|Formation||23 October 2020|
|Type||Invite-only micronational organisation|
|Headquarters||Constantia, Swannia (de jure)|
CONPACT Discord Server (de facto)
|Origins||The Fun Gang|
The Constantia Pact, also known as the CONPACT, is an invite-only micronational organisation established on 23 October 2020 by Daniel Hamilton as a supplementary organisation to the The Fun Gang, a micronational social group established by Hamilton on 2 October 2020. As such, the Constantia Pact was initially open exclusively to nations represented within The Fun Gang. As of April 2022, the Constantia Pact has 14 member states.
The Constantia Pact was initially established by a consortium of nations represented members of The Fun Gang, led by Hamilton and the Unified Royal States of Australis. As such, membership never exceeded 10 member states due to the 10 user limit on Discord group chats, of which The Fun Gang was based in. As a result of this, the Constantia Pact experienced varying degrees of inactivity throughout the first year of its existence. This was alleviated following the appointment of Sertor Valentinus as Chair, when Valentinus amended the membership policy in August 2021.
The Constantia Pact has seen significant growth in membership from September 2021 onwards. The Constantia Pact is often referred to as the 'Cupertino-lite', a reference to the Cupertino Alliance and the similarities in membership.[a]
The Constantia Pact was named after the Australisian (modern-day Swannia) territory of Constantia. The name was suggested by Daniel Hamilton on 18 October, who stated it resembled the word 'Constant', signifying lasting allyship between member states.
Other founding states proposed names such as the Genois Pact and the Sabiland Pact, named after territories of Garuda and Naveria respectively. These names were ultimately not adopted, in favour of the Constantia Pact.
Discussions on forming a micronational organisation originated in early October 2020 within a social group named The Fun Gang. The original concept was to create a Warsaw Pact-esque coalition consisting of the micronations participating in the said social group.
The pact was eventually founded on 23 October, and chair elections were held a couple of days later, anointing Daniel Hamilton as the inaugural chair. Early projects of this period included Encyclopædia Conpactia, following a growing wish to foster a repository separated from the MicroWiki community, namely the "new guard".
On 13 February 2021, Daniel Hamilton resigned from the position of chair and handed the chairmanship over to his vice chair, Liam Alexander. On 4 March 2021, Munroe introduced the Constantia Agreement, a document to formalize the pact and be a temporary substitute for a charter. The signing of the agreement began on 15 March 2021 and was ratified on 19 March 2021.
August Renaissance (August 2021 – present)
The August Renaissance is an ongoing period of the Constantia Pact, which commenced upon Sertor Valentinus becoming Chair of the CONPACT. It saw the expulsion of many inactive member states, and the organisation opened its doors to the greater micronational community, by expanding the invite-only system to allow any micronation to be invited to the organisation through the Membership Act written by Daniel Hamilton. With the passage of the act on 22 August 2021, twelve nations were invited to join the pact before the end of the year.
The United Defense and Cooperation Treaty Community merged into the Pact in March 2022.
The cabinet of the Constantia Pact is mandated by the Cabinet Act, an act writen by Sertor Valentinus. The act mandates a Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Minister of Public Affairs, Minister of Internal Affairs, and a Minister of Development. As well as explaining the responsibilites of each position, the act gives the Chairman and General Assembly the right to establish and disestablish offices of the Pact.
The current cabinet of the Constantia Pact is as follows:
- Chair - Liam Alexander
- Vice-Chair - Carson Snyder
- Minister of Public Affairs - Larry Martin
- Minister of Internal Affairs - James Bornstein
- Minister of Development - Simon Reeve
The General Assembly of the Constantia Pact is the legislative body of the Pact. It is made up of representatives from member states of the Pact. Each state gets one vote in the General Assembly, which is delegated to a primary delegate to issue the vote.
The Constantia Pact currently has six member states, however prior to the August renaissance membership was at nine member states, most of which being severely inactive.
The Membership Act, passed on 22 August 2021, revolutionised the membership process, by enabling non-TFG members to be invited to the Constantia Pact, as well as affirming that members can only join the organisation by being invited, instead of through an open application process. The act also passed provisions to expel inactive member states, leading to Vice Chair Daniel Hamilton expelling half of the member states of the organisation.
