The policy of the micronation regarding foreign relations is very easy:

  1. Do cooperate with those micronations interested on poetry for the benefit of the community of poets with no discriminations to any micronation.
  2. We do like summits, events, diplomatic occasions to meet each others.
  3. We attended the Digi Micro Summit last 19–21 August 2022
  4. No treats is being signed yet, but we are looking at the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (1969)[8] for any to be signed.
