| Fishtown Newport Territory is an Exterritorial Sovereign Territory surrounded by the Federal Republic of Germany which, although not a member of the Federated Micronations, is linked to it as an Associated Sovereign Territory, with the Administrator of FNT also fulfilling the function of Representative of the Federated Micronations within the Territory. |
Please also refer to http://www.fnt.bernhard-krauth.de for more details on the FNT.
The status as Associated Sovereign Territory has no influence on political, economic or diplomatic activities by both the FM and the FNT. The State Department of the Federated Micronations (SDFM) understands that there is no territorial conflict between the FNT and the Free State of Oldenbourg, a state which has been unilaterally recognized by the Federated Micronations.
The international subsidiary of Capricornia Post, Capricornia Post Extraterritorial Agencies (CPEA), has opened an Agency within the FNT, naming the Administrator of FNT also as the Postmaster of the Agency. A number of stamps denominated in Euro have been issued for the FNT:
1) Commemorative issue to celebrate the start of postal services within the FNT
2) Definitive series, consisting of 5 stamps depicting local birds of the FNT
Due to the delay of delivery of these issues, the Postmaster was authorized to issue an overprinted provisional "Postmaster" issue for the FNT. This issue will be documented later.
Cancellation of these issues is currently performed with the Postmaster's personal cancellation stamp. A date stamp for usage by the FNT Agency is currently in preparation by CPEA.
