History[edit | edit source]
When the North American Confederation was being founded, it was agreed that the three heads of state of New Europe, the Ohio Empire, and Eniarku would each hold critical positions in the Confederation's new government. While the Emperor Wilhelm I of New Europe became the Emperor of North America and Aaron Meek became the NAC's first Prime Minister, it was decided that Joseph Marx of the Ohio Empire, with his high reputation within the community as a diplomat and peacekeeper, would become the first Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Marx ran the position to the best of his ability and oversaw several major diplomatic crises in the micronational community, principal being the Dakoda George affair and the Lethler Experiment which fundamentally altered the landscape of the micronational community. With the abdication of Emperor William and the collapse of the Meek government came Marx's resignation and retirement from the community.
With Marx's return to micronationalism and his appointment to the office of Prime Minister, the position of Foriegn Minister remains vacant.
