     Always will we seek peace with our brothers and sisters
     of other nations. We want to be there, to support them if
     they need us. We ask no more then to be at peace with you.
     This is the way we have chosen for ourselves.

Chapter 1: Structure of Constitution

These are our laws. We have instituted them together, only we can change them together.
All on our territory are bound to these laws by our force, and these laws must respect all that are on our territory.
Our flag indicates when we are in peace, it indicates if we are at war, for all to see.
We do not want an Empire, or to be too great. Serious groups in our nation may start their own nation, to be self sufficient and independent.
We will not accept domination over ourselves from another nation.
Every human being is worthy of Justice and freedom, to be equal in these with respect to other people.
When our councils sink in chaos, our King or Queen will rule them.

Chapter 2: Structure of Individual Protections

Punishment does - for the sake of the innocent - not include wounding, torture or death.
Animals are not to be abused.
Everyone has the right to speak and listen. Everyone has the right to organise.
You own what you rightfully acquired. The privacy of your home may not be violated, unless for the gravest concerns in the pursuit of Justice.
We will try our best not to convict innocent people of crimes.
Someone convicted to imprisonment will be kept separate from other such imprisoned people if he/she so wants it.
Children should be cared for.

Chapter 3: Structure of Government
Our representatives behave true to their word. They are servants to the will of the people.
We can force our way unto the delegates using a direct vote on an issue; the abstentions are represented by the delegates.
Our general election dates are determined by an independent body, who are elected by the people.
Our King or Queen will inspect our Government, and we will inspect our King or Queen.
Our Government has no secrets. Delegates decide by their own majority.
We elect and replace at our whim our delegates that represent us. By the people elected delegates may group together to elect and replace at their whim someone to represent them, but those so elected may not do the same.
Our delegates are rewarded a modest compensation for their work.
We elect our delegate by freely assembled group of 50 or more. Our delegates form councils together by 50 delegates or more.
Our delegates will let everyone know well in advance what they are going to be discussing.
If our delegates form large councils, they can divide themselves into 50 groups or more that each choose one of their own to represent them.
Our nation has a national council, one delegate from each area.
Our Government councils can appoint ministerial councils, who handle a special task for the Government council.
There are no delegates that are not supported by those they represent. Our delegates do not serve another master in secret.
Our Government will receive our word and let the people know what they have received.
An independent and trustworthy group of people will be put to the task of judging who broke our laws.
An independent and trustworthy group of people will be put to the task of finding who seem to have broken our laws.
When a home must be searched in the persuit of Justice, the resident is compensated if innocent.
The law strives to establish equality of power.
Local councils of delegates have Government power in their area. Larger area councils rule issues if the local councils can not agree to do things differently or the same, or want them to rule something.
Besides police and King and those responsible in the Government, a third group keeps an eye on the integrity of our money system.

Chapter 4: Structure of Disaster Relief

The disaster relief organization trains for disasters, war is only one type of disaster it trains for.
Our army only fights tyranny within our own borders.
Our Armies and fighters therein decide for themselves if they will fight if the people ask them to fight.

Chapter 5: Structure of Monopoly Sectors

We will not allow someone to profit unfairly from a power position. If needed we will organise a specific service by general negotiation.

Chapter 6: Structure of Free Markets

Everyone in the nation is free to negotiate exchanges of what they own.
Groups who create something together and are not yet ruled by their group majority, become ruled by their group majority once they loose their original starter and are larger then 10 people.
We do not accept that people have masters outside of our nation, for whom they work for their livelihood.
Groups who work together are not to abuse themselves or each other.
There can not be too much concentration of power in a business compared to other businesses.
Groups who offer products in the markets do not keep the working conditions in their establishments a secret.

Chapter 7: Structure of Special Markets

We may in selected cases create a special system to handle a certain work that requires a special solution beyond a free market or nationally negotiated production.

Chapter 8: Structure of Finance

When our economy and the wealth therein become too lobsided, the Government may step in with mass approval and do what is necessary to redress the balance of power.
Our councils set themselves with restraint and transparency to the task of business finance.
Individuals may lend to others small sums for interest, but not large sums, the interests received from loans must not be enough to make a living.
Loans or other such investments are cancelled after 7 years, except for the value of something that was offered in temporary ownership to the lending party as a condition of the loan.

Chapter 9: Structure of Resources

Every person has the natural and practical right to use its equal share of the available natural resources. > < > < > < > < ^ > < > < > < > < > < > < > < > < > < > < > < > < v > < > < > < > < o > < > < > < > < ^ > < > < > < > < > < > < > < > < > < > < > < > < v > < > < > < > < End. - o -

(Note: the last 10 laws where made in a hurry, but they will stay like this because the system isn't what it is supposed to be, until the people make the first improvement to it, by which they become the maintainers and owners of their own laws.)
