About FICT Rules for participants
The Forum for International Cooperation and Trade (FICT) is an international organisation of a number of small countries in several corners of the world and was founded on 25 June 2011 in the city of Purikali, the capital of the kingdom of Kaupelan. FICT aims to foster and improve economic, scientific and cultural development in, and cooperation and trade between its member states by means of the (facilitation of) trade agreements, the promotion of tourism and improvement of traffic of people through a visa agreement, and cultural exchange.

Currently, FICT has thirteen member states: the State of Adzhatia, the Kingdom of Amargo, the Kingdom of Guelphia, the Democratic Republic of Harrawi, the Republic of le de Romanhe, the Kingdom of Kaupelan, the republic of Maysoran, Algheran and Shaoran (MAS), the duchy of New Courland, the Principality of Pannonia, the Kingdom of Tarmorya, the Republic of the Vosks and the Gurds (Voskia), the Republic of Yukland and the Republic of Yutyrama. The membership of Pannonia is pending ratification of the Treaty of sor.

In real life, FICT is a geofictional project of a small number of persons that created their own countries. If you have created a fictional country on earth as well and you think that it fits in the FICT rules as stated here, you can send an application to the current participants through the FICT forum on www.geopoeia.net. Note that you have to register yourself in order to access the forum.

History
The Forum for International Cooperation and Trade was officially founded on 25 June 2011, and was the result of the FICTS Reform Conference that was held before that date between most of the member states of FICTS and a number of other countries. During the founding conference in Purikali, nine countries were present: Adzhatia, Kaupelan, Tarmorya, Yukland and Yutyrama, who were members of FICTS at that moment, as well as Dhram Ph, Harrawi, Khusqaikama and Kronenburg. The sixth FICTS-country, Tuvelau, didn't sign the Treaty of Purikali and didn't become a member of FICT. Kronenburg didn't sign the Treaty either.

The ratification process of the Treaty of Purikali took the second half of 2011, Dhram Ph being the first (1 July) and Adzhatia being the last (23 December) countries to ratify. The Treaty entered into force however after ratification by Khusqaikama on 21 October. As Adzhatia hadn't ratified yet, the Ambassador of Dhram Ph, Siŋ Hau, became the first official Chairwoman of the Conference of Ambassadors, replacing transitional chairman Lowok Aralangit (Kaupelan).

The first Council Meeting, held on 4 April 2012, became a disaster. Although the Ambassadors had carefully prepared the agenda and had left only minor disagreements to be filled in, these disagreements proved to be more 'major' than expected and the Budget proposals and budgeting system were fiercely debated in the Council. No compromise was reached and the Meeting ended without any further decision than the acceptance of Chimor as a member state.

After the summit, Chimor, Dhram Ph, Harrawi, Khusqaikama announced that they intended to leave FICT and found a more intensive organisation instead. Adzhatia joined them, although it didn't leave FICT. The member states that declared their allegiance to FICT decided to reform teh Purikali Treaty; this became the Treaty of sor, which was approved on 26 June 2012 during a Council Meeting in sor, the capital of Yukland. During the same meeting, le de Romanhe and Voskia were accepted as new member states.

The season of 2012-2013 was dominated by the coup d'tat and subsequent domestic crisis in Tarmorya, for which the other FICT member states held a special summit, condemning the violence in Tarmorya and urging the country to accept the prime minister of le de Romanhe, mr. Guimarc Bonamy, as a FICT mediator to help the country's factions solve their dispute. On the General Assembly of 4 May 2013, Guelphia was admitted as new member state of FICT. Since 2013, FICT manage to stabilise and develop as a reliable organisation. On 2 May 2015, Harrawi rejoined FICT, together with two new member states: the republic of MAS, and New Courland. On 7 May 2016, the principality of Pannonia and the kingdom of Amargo joined FICT.
