The Krasnocorian MTO membership referendum took place on 11th November 2018 in Krasnocoria to gauge support for the country either applying for the membership of MTO or not. The referendum resulted in 74.87% of voters giving support to the membership application.



The campaign started on 21 October 2018 and ended on 9 November 2018, lasting 20 days. Krasnocorian law is guaranteeing equal time of promoting both referendum options. The law was respected in nation-wide reputation media, and was strictly controlled by Regulatory Body for Media in Krasnocoria. However, several local medias in Krasnarus and Port Ulje have broke the law, favouring one option completely or partially. Responsible directors and redactors were arrested and prosecuted. Campaigns in support of membership application were based on benefitions that MTO carry and existing economic cooperation with Caputia, while the campaigns against were based on the fact that Krasnocorian enemies in the War of Lost Brothers are members, such as Florian Republic and Shireroth.

However, Imperial Prince Drag'ar issued the following statement: "I am pleased to see the people of this fine country move as one towards a more positive direction for themselves. Despite this organization harboring their bitterest enemies, they still have the strength of will to carry forth to join this organization to advance the greater good. The gods must surely be pleased with them, and I wish their people divine protection as they move forward to enact the results of this referendum."
