The Union of Nemkhav Aligned States, normally referred to as the Union, is an union of micronations that follow Nemkhav policy but are not members of the Federation itself.
In 2011, during a Skype conversation on the Micropolitan Lounge between Kozuc's Chairman Riley Small, Nemkhavia's Minister for Foreign Affairs Marka Mejakhansk and Nemkhavia's Minister for Economics Lucas Campos, Small showed interest in joining the Nemkhav Federation, but he was afraid of losing Kozuc's independence, a main prolbem faced by many when joining the Federation, he suggested a "Nemkhav Commonwealth". Marka and Campos started discussing the idea of having a "Nemkhav Commonwealth" and if it would work or not. Many other Nemkhavs showed interested in developing such Commonwealth, and on December 18, 2011, Marka Mejakhansk proposed a bill in the Nemkhav House of Territories to establish the Union of Nemkhav Alligned States, an union of micronations that follow Nemkhav Policy but are not members of the Federation. The Union provides an opportunity for micronations to get to know the Federation before joining as well as facilitating close cooperation with the Nemkhav Federal Government.
