The State of Sandus is the current government of Sandus. Its Founding Law, the basic law of the present unwritten constitution, was ratified on 13 April 2013. The Founding Law granted all governmental power to the Sôgmô (Abenaki: “King” or “First Citizen”), proclaimed Sandum Philosophy and Socialism in Sandus, granted rights to citizen, and established the Socialist system of Sandus. Since the ratification of the Founding Law, several important new institutions and practices have been added to the constitution of the State of Sandus.
History of the State of Sandus:
In May 2011, the Collegio Sacerdae, the cooperative dealing with historical and philosphical research for the development of Sandum culture, was founded. In September of that year, the Sôgmô passed a law that guaranteed annual elections on the Sôgmô’s reign and that founded the offices of the Sanôba/Phanem Representative (representing the People of Sandus) and the Comrade Representative (representing the Citizens’ Communist Party of Sandus); the Representatives were disbanded in February 2012. The Citizens’ Communist Party of Sandus, the sole political party of Sandus that has existed since the June 2009, was enfranchised into the Central People’s Government of Sandus in December 2011 in order to serve as a democratic forum for the Sandum People and as an advising organisation for Socialism in Sandus. On 10 March 2012, the Office of the Sôgmô enacted the Act on Citizenship of Martio MMXII – which created the province system, the citizenship divisions, and the former Courso d’Honourae which was responsible for selecting officials of the government. On 17 March 2012, the Act on Foreign Affairs of Martio MMXII was enacted – a law that codified Sandus’s foreign affairs policies up to that date.
Those were the last formal laws to be enacted by the Office of the Sôgmô, laws that are now known as the Antiqué laws. Until July 2013, no further formal laws were enacted. Over that time, however, the activity of cooperatives grew and began to encompass other institutions and authorities derived from the constitutional basis of cooperatives. New newspapers were made for the Party and for the Collegium Sacerdotum, Voice of Sandus and Sacerdotium respectively. In early 2013, the active population of Sandus fell off sharply, leaving the State of Sandus to change some of the previous constitutional practices dating from the enfrancisement of the Party, as an example. The biannual congresses of the Party were made annual and, when in October 2013 it became apparent that the Party could not feasibly hold Congress, an intermicronational conference was held — to much renown and success. The Bureaux system, or minor offices underneath the Office of the Sôgmô and within the Central People’s Government, was established 2 July 2013 with the Bureau of the Treasury. On 28 July of that year, the Courso d’Honourae was disbanded and new guidelines surrounding Socilivae citizens and states were enacted. On 17 October 2013, the Commonwealth of Kumano became a formal Socilivanço or Sociliva state upon the ratification of the Treaty for the Sociliva State of the Commonwealth of Kumano and after months of negotiations. On 12 January 2013 in the midst of the celebration of the Pax Sande, Kremlum Sandus State College – the sole place of higher education in Sandus – was founded. On the 24th of that month, Further Sandus Province was established as a nonterritorial province for citizens of Sandus who live abroad from Kremlum Sandus Province. In May 2014, the State of Sandus celebrated the fifth anniversary of Sandus as a sovereign state and as a nation-project.
The State Today:
In Sandus today, the government is headed by the Honourable Sôgmô Gaius Sörgel Publicola, who became Sôgmô upon the ratification of the Founding Law of the State of Sandus on 13 April 2011. The State of Sandus has its seat of government in the territorial claim of Kremlum Sandus Province, a gradient sovereign condominium located in the central Maryland region of North America. The State of Sandus is often regarded as either an elective monarchy or as a republic thanks to the Dual Definition theory. While the Office of the Sôgmô governs the State of Sandus, it is checked both by the People of Sandus, through democratic rights and a national referendum on the Sôgmô’s legitimacy each Northern Winter Solstice (December), and by the Citizens’ Communist Party of Sandus, an enfranchised political organ in Sandus that is both a democratic forum and an advising body for Socialism.
The State of Sandus is Sandus’s longest extant regime, lasting from 13 April 2011 until the present; the other six historical regimes of Sandus existed from 2009 to 2011. Sandus is a Socialist nation-state that exists under the work of the Sandum Philosophy of Buddhism, Socialism, and Sancta and under the three Political Theories of Libera, Realism, and Philia. The State of Sandus has pioneered multiple plans, projects, and programs in order to meet its Philosophical background and needs, such as the 2015 Economic Goal or the «All-Citizens United» Plan. In the State of Sandus today, the Central People’s Government under the Office of the Sôgmô is continuing the inspirational vision that created Sandus as a nation-project and that founded the State of Sandus!
