The Micras Organisation for Standardisation is an international organisation founded in Acquecalde, Sanama in 1680. Its stated goal is to promote worldwide proprietary, industrial and commercial standards. Adoption of its proposed standards is strictly voluntary. The organisation is incorporated as a non-profit under Sanaman law. Following the Sanaman Civil War and the secession of Cisamarra, the organisation relocated to Brigham outside Niyi.
