A MESSAGE FROM THE HONOURABLE SÔGMÔ
GAIUS SOERGEL PUBLICOLA
On this Seventh Anniversary of the Creation of Sandus, I would like to welcome you to the public portal of the State of Sandus.
In the past seven years, the Sandum nation has grown and matured at the same time many of our citizens have. Established on 26 May 2009, Sandus, known originally as Sandefreistikhan, has grown to encompass a nation with a unique and pluralistic culture, a broad yet distinct philosophy, and a welcoming but eclectic polity. We Sandum people are proud of the strides we have made in developing and advancing our nation and rightfully so, for it is difficult for any group of people to strive to create one’s own polity or to develop one’s own culture. Yet, in our postmodern world, Sandus has shown itself to be a competent example of this self-determination of individuals.
In this fifth year of the State of Sandus, we are furthermore proud of the advances made under the constitutional regime of the State. Together, all State organs have made Sandus better, have developed Sandus more wholly, and have more positively practiced euergetism for the lives of Sandum citizens. Each organ falls neatly into place in the republican constitution of the State: the Sôgmô leads, the Party deliberates, the Council enacts, the cooperatives produce, and the authorities and institutions perform. Together, we shall hope for 5⁵ and more years of the State of Sandus!
Sous la direction du Sôgmô, notre nation augmente l’utilisation de la langue française et de la culture pan-francophone chez nous. Ni ornement ni symptome, le Sandus utilise la langue française pour définir sa philosophie et pour la construction de la société sande. Avec cette langue officielle, le Sandus est devenu membre de l’Organisation de la MicroFrancophonie (OMF). Il a ouvert ses portes aux autres membres et aux amis de l’OMF et il a decouvert la notion d’égalité, de droits humains, et d’écologisme qui adornent la société francophone.
We are especially proud of the achievements made by all Sandum citizens to the Sandum State in these past 7 years and we are indeed glad to share them with you through this portal.
We wish you a happy holiday, on the occasion of the Day of Creation or Sandum Independence Day (26 May).
