Background[edit | edit source]

On 08 March 2020, Oscar I met Rafael, King of the Lunes and his wife, Queen Letizia, in São Paulo, Brazil, for a state dinner. In addition to the fact that both are personal friends, they are experienced micronationalists and the conversation moved through several micronational subjects and took a long time in the posture of micronations already established face the new projects that appeared in Brazil; in their vast majority, derivative projects that learned about the current through contact with the foreign micronational community and often, the target of hostility by Portuguese-speaking micronationalists.

Events[edit | edit source]

The Emperor of Karnia received the royal couple of Luna at the famous Paulistano restaurant, Paris 6. There, they went to a several courses dinner, where they discussed several micronational and off-micronational topics, developing the friendship between the sovereigns.

Legacy[edit | edit source]

Although prior to the emergence of the Brazilian sector, the meeting was important to form Oscar I's conviction to elaborate the separation between derivatists and simulationists micronationalists not through open confrontation, but through diplomatic articulation and cultural incentive. This meeting between the Emperor of Karnia-Ruthenia and the Kings of Luna can be considered as the first micronational meeting of the Brazilian sector that, eventually, led to the establishment of the Conference of Santiago.
