The Mesogean Cooperation Organization (MOZ) is a regional intergovernmental political and economic union consisting of sixteen Mesogean nations. Since its formation on 16 December 1981 by Aetolia, Echia, Faencia, Meleto, Monsora, SardinianCorsican, Rutuli, Tortona, Varkana and Volisania, the organization's membership has expanded to include several other states.



Currently the MOZ has 16 full members, 6 associate members, 1 acceding state and 5 observers. Full members are fully bound by the treaties and institutions of the MOZ; associate members are bound only by the treaties and institutions they choose to be part of; acceding states are states that are in the process of becoming either full or associate member states; and observers are states that are not part of the MOZ but are bound by it through other treaties or are exploring the possibility of acceding.

Community Council


Associate institutions


MOZ member states retain all powers not explicitly handed to the Mesogean Cooperation Organization, depending on their membership status. In some areas, the MOZ enjoys exclusive competence. These are areas in which member states have renounced any capacity to enact legislation. In other areas the MOZ and its member states share the competence to legislate. While both can legislate, member states can only legislate to the extent to which the MOZ has not. In other policy areas the MOZ can only co-ordinate, support and supplement member state action but cannot enact legislation with the aim of harmonizing national laws.

That a particular policy area falls into a certain category of competence is not necessarily indicative of what legislative procedure is used for enacting legislation within that policy area. Different legislative procedures are used within the same category of competence, and even with the same policy area.

The distribution of competences in various policy areas between full member states and the organization is divided in the following three categories:

Exclusive competence
Shared competence
Supporting competence
"The Organization has exclusive competence to make directives and conclude international agreements when provided for in an Organization legislative act."
"Member States cannot exercise competence in areas where the Organization has done so."
"Organization exercise of competence shall not result in Member States being prevented from exercising theirs in" ...
  • research, technological development and (outer) space
  • development cooperation, humanitarian aid
"The Organization coordinates Member States policies or implements supplemental to theirs common policies, not covered elsewhere"
"The Organization can carry out actions to support, coordinate or supplement Member States' actions in" ...
  • the protection and improvement of human health
  • industry
  • culture
  • tourism
  • education, youth, sport and vocational training
  • civil protection (disaster prevention)
  • administrative cooperation

Single Market

The Mesogean single market (Breislandic: Mesogäisch Binnenmarkt) applies to all members. With a population of 481,319,743, a GDP (PPP) of ₭17.981 trillion and a GDP (PPP) per capita of ₭37,358 the Mesogäisch Binnenmarkt is the largest economy in the world.

Free trade

The Mesogean Free Trade Area (Mesogäische Freihandelsbereich; MFHB) is a regional trade organization and free trade area consisting of the associate members of the MOZ. The organization operates in parallel with the full members, and all associate member states participate in the Mesogean Single Market. They are not, however, party to the Mesogean Customs Union or the Energy Standard Organization.

Whilst the MFHB is not a customs union and MOZ associate member states have full rights to enter into bilateral third-country trade arrangements, it does have a coordinated trade policy with the rest of the MOZ. As a result, the associate member states have jointly concluded free trade agreements with the MOZ and a number of other countries. To participate in the MOZ's single market, Burawa, Hersatia, Jarin, Orma and Sakalia are parties to the Mesogean Economic Area (MEB), with compliance regulated by the MFHB Surveillance Authority and the MFHB Court. Triphylia has a set of bilateral agreements with the MOZ instead.

Mesogean identity

Historically, Mesogean culture has not led to a geopolitical unit. At present, Mesogean integration co-exists with national loyalties and national patriotism. A development of Mesogean identity is regarded by supporters of Mesogean integration as part of the pursuit of politically, economically and militarily influential united Mesogean states. Such proponents argue it supports the foundations of common Mesogean values and strengthens the supra-national institutions of the MOZ. The concept of common Mesogean identity is viewed as rather a by-product than the main goal of the Mesogean integration process, and is actively promoted by the MOZ and non-governmental initiatives.
