To be recognised as a country we have to act like a country. When a large number of people think of us as a country and politians in other countries inadvertently call us a country then recognition will be easier.
I think our first step needs to be getting organised. If Dr. Ashurbeyli is representing a united group of people we will actually be a country. That can only happen if there are people telling him what we want. We need to elect trend setters and ambassadors. But so far they have very few votes. I think because many Asgardians do not know about the elections. The only way to inform most Asgardians is by email. The candidates should each be allowed to send a group email to the people allowed to vote for them. Debutantes should be able to email everyone in 300km. The rest everyone. Maybe only those with a few votes already, so we don't all get hundreds of emails. But something so people know. If a few ambassadors can say 'I stood for policy X and 1000 Asgardians voted for me', then they will have influence. Then the world will see that Asgard represents Asgardians and Asgard can be a useful ally and should be recognised.
Hopefully we'll be able to provide useful space based services that other countries want, so they will see us as equals.
Sorry this was so long! I just think we need to be a country first to be recognised as one.
