The State of Sandus has had several ongoing policies, programs, and projects. Many of these are motivated by the Sandum Philosophy and Sandum Political Theories and have to do with economic and sociocultural affairs. The Founding Law sets forth basic policies that the State of Sandus ought to follow, though this page is dedicated to the specific policies that the Central People’s Government has created for the betterment of Sandum society and the Sandum People.
Current Policies and Long-term Plans, Programs, and Projects:
- Philia Plan for the Major Societal Shift: This plan seeks to turn Sandum government and policy towards cultural subjects once more, to reduce the energy required to keep Sandus active, and to reduce the administrative need for the Office of the Sôgmô by creating ministries and other individual chargé(e)s d’affaires. It has seven sections to deal with these broad matters.
- Cultural Development (Philia) Policy: This broad program included smaller policies, such as the leitourgía program; it was intended to make Sandus into an independent cultural nation. Today, the policy is largely considered a success as Sandus is viewed by its citizens and many foreign observers as a micronation with a unique and well-developed culture.
- Foreign Policy: All of Sandus’s foreign policies – from policies concerning recognition of other sovereign states to those concerning Sandus’s proletarian internationalism – are found here.
Current Medium-term Projects and Plans:
- Law on Succession: In the works since the beginning of 2018, this project seeks to formalise the process by which a new Sôgmô will be selected and elected.
- Reform of the Council: Facilitator Hatsu Ryuho has floated the idea of reforming the Council to streamline its functions and to lengthen the term of the facilitator in Sandus’s direct democratic assembly.
- Toward a Judicial/Philosophical System: The Sôgmô is considering a future judicial and philosophical branch to consider individual cases in Sandus where peace has been breached or where there has been outrage and hubris.
- Annual Media updates: This project seeks to schedule Facebook updates for major cultural events at least a year in advance, or to have a document to keep the updates and to serve also as an explanatory calendar.
- Bestowals of Nobility: Since the creation of the Sandum Table of Noble Ranks in April 2017, the Sôgmô has slowly been bestowing noble ranks on deserving Sandum citizens.
- Sandum Flags for All Citizens: This project will donate a Sandum flag to every citizen to remind them of the Sandum Ideal in their daily lives.
- Ecological Initiatives: This project seeks to hire one person who will act as a liaison with the government and as a herald to encourage pragmatic, realistic ecological solutions.
- Journalism: The State Media Cooperative is always looking for writers and journalists to write on any subject they wish under the umbrella of the cooperative.
- Language Initiative: The Sôgmô is in the works to develop a program to encourage language learning in the State of Sandus including but not limited to the minority official languages, French and Latin.
Historic Policies, Programs, and Projects:
- 2015 Economic Goal: The 2015 Economic Goal was established in 2012 in order to prepare the State of Sandus for economic activity in the future. Originally intended as a joint economic goal between Sandus and Renasia for an integrated micronational economic, Sandus has changed the course of the goal to focus on a working economic cooperatives since Renasia disbanded. The economic goal was hailed as a success for laying the groundwork of the Sandum Socialist economy.
- «All-Citizens United» Plan: This plan was established in 2013 and was intended to guarantee the welfare of the Sandum People in the future. The plan sought to establish a Socialist economic system and a social welfare system within the State of Sandus. It was hailed as a success for laying the framework of the Sandum Socialist economy and Socialist society.
- Building Democracy – the Council Plan: The Council Plan was a plan to remove the Citizens’ Communist Party’s function as a democratic forum and to introduce a direct democratic council or assembly to Sandus and to the Republic. In November 2014, the Party approved the Sôgmô’s plan to form a direct democratic council and the Council was ratified by a national referendum on 21 December 2014.
- Building Infrastructure Program: This long-term program sought to invent and make more firm the various ways in which Sandum citizens could meet and discuss with one another and how media could be shared in Sandus. It still continues as a program in many ways.
