The League of Geofictional Nations (Aardse Geofictieve Liga in Dutch, la Ligue des Nations Géofictionnelles in French) is a fictional international organisation for fictional countries on Earth created on 2 March 1986 by members of the Dutch Geofiction Association. Its main purpose is to improve the cooperation between some smaller, non-aligned countries on earth. Internationally, the Dutch abbreviation AGL is used. The organisation's head quarters (the Secretariate) are located in the Cilogian capital of Prisce.

Organisation

The Conference is the highest organ of the AGL. It convenes at least twice a year and consists of the delegations of the member states, mostly headed by the government leaders and the foreign affairs ministers. The Conference takes decisions based on article 12 of the Treaty of Aralethe (the AGL founding treaty) concerning the implementation of the tasks and obligations that were given to the AGL in its treaties.

The AGL Secretariate is located in the Cilogian capital of Prisce and is headed by the League's Secretary General, who is appointed for a four year term by the Conference. His or her mandate is twice renewable. Since 6 September 2012, the Secretary General has been the former Marckonian prime minister Heidi Ankerskjöld.
