The Montediszamble Convention on Freedom of Expression, Civility and Copyright Protection in Micronationalism, commonly referred to as Montediszamble Convention, is an international treaty which condemns the attacks on freedom of expression, the attempts to implement a cancel culture in micronationalism, the practice of shunning and publicly shaming other micronationalists over political and religious views or personal disagreements, the usage of personal insults in intermicronational discourse and the violation of copyright.

The idea of the convention belongs to Yaroslav Mar, the President of Lostisland, who drafted the original text. It was finalized by Eric Lis, the Emperor of Aerica. The word "Montediszamble", which gave name to the convention, is the Lostisland's name for the dormant Hunter Island volcano and the proposed name for the Lostislandic capital, which, in turn, was given after the semi-legendary founder of Lostisland Rolf Diszamble.

Revealing the convention to the public, Yaroslav Mar said that "[b]y signing it, we’re sending a clear message: the largest micronations of the world condemn the practice of shunning, shaming and bullying micronationalists on official websites or other venues over political or religious differences, believe that resorting to personal insults is childish and unprofessional, and do not condone copyright violation".[1]

In an interview to Courrier Micronational, the French-speaking newspaper of the Principality of Beremagne, which was the first nation to join the convention after the original signers, he added that the convention doesn't contain any groundbreaking points and its provisions have been understood as the "conventional wisdom" of micronationalism for decades, but that this is the first time that these provisions are codified in a document signed by world's largest and most renowned micronations.[2]
