Constitution of Azuria

In humble submission to Almighty God,
Who controls the destinies of peoples and nations,

to respect and to protect the human dignity, life, liberty and property of all in our midst,

are desirous of giving the reestablished PRINCIPALITY OF AZURIA A CONSTITUTION which provides for elected and responsible forms of government and which is best suited to the traditions, history and circumstances of our land:

We, the people of Azuria, do set forth in this constitution the supreme and sovereign laws of our nation to be enacted and enforced to the fullest extent in order to protect the rights and freedoms of the people.

Formal Declaration of Independence

Whereas in the course of human affairs history has shown that it may become necessary for a people to resolve the political affiliations which have connected them with another people and to assume amongst other nations the separate and equal status to which they are entitled.

And Whereas in such an event a respect for the opinions of mankind requires them to declare to other nations the causes which impel them to assume full responsibility for their own affairs.

Now therefore, We, the People of Azuria, Do Hereby Declare:

THAT Azuria is in need of a a new order of its citizens to exercise the powers of self-government and become responsible for the progress, development, and welfare of their people;

THAT the people of Azuria, having demonstrated their loyalty to the cause of civilization and to their kith and kin elsewhere in Malton through years of war against the undead, and having been prepared to shed their blood and give of their substance in what they believed to be the mutual interests of freedom-loving people, now recognize the need for their own state.

THAT the people of Azuria have witnessed an onslaught which is destructive of those very precepts upon which civilization in a primitive country has been built, and they have seen the principles of Western democracy, responsible government, and moral standards crumble elsewhere, while nevertheless they have remained steadfast;

THAT the people of Azuria fully support and recognize the need for sovereign independence.

THAT in the belief that procrastination in this affair and delaying of the inevitable strike at and injure the very life of their suburb, the people of Azuria consider it essential that Azuria should attain, without delay, sovereign independence, the justice of which is beyond question.

NOW, Therefore, We The People of Azuria, in humble submission to any higher power which may control the destinies of nations, conscious that the people of Azuria have always shown unswerving loyalty and devotion to civilized Malton, and earnestly praying that we will not be hindered in our determination to continue exercising our undoubted right to demonstrate the same loyalty and devotion, and seeking to promote common good so that the dignity and freedom of all men may be assured, Do By This Proclamation, adopt, enact, and give to the people of Azuria the Constitution annexed hereto:

Given under our hand on the first day of June in the Year two thousand and eleven.
