The state as a person of international law should possess the following qualifications:
(i) a permanent population;
(ii) a defined territory;
(iii) government; and
(iv) capacity to enter into relations with the other states.
There are no exceptions to these membership requirements, and said requirements are inclusive.
Interested nations that wish to apply for membership should send a letter of intent to Baron John of Caux, requesting admission to the LSN.
