2 Rights of the state citizens

2.1 Citizenship

Each state citizen is also a citizen of the Confederation.

2.2 Democratic government

Each state citizen has the right:


to vote on the state constitution and amendments thereto


to propose constitutional amendments


to qualify a proposed constitutional amendment by  having it supported by a reasonable number of  fellow state citizens


to submit a qualified proposed constitutional amendment to the state citizens for decision

2.3 Freedom of movement

Each citizen has the right:


to leave any state and bring with him property of any kind


to transit through any state and bring with him property of any kind


to withdraw from any state's territory any of  his non-contested  real estate that has been accepted by another state

2.4   Privileges and immunities


The citizens of each state shall be entitled to all privil­eges and immunities of citizens in the several states.


Notwithstanding  the previous subsection, the right of a naturalized citizen to settle in a state other than the one of which he is a citizen may be regulated by the states or by the Confederation.

2.5 Self-determination


The right of self-determination is the citizens' right to erect a new state  either within the boun­daries of an existing state or by the amalgamation of two or more states or parts of states.


Any citizen qualified to vote may spon­sor a draft proposal for the erection of a new state. The draft shall describe the boundaries of the proposed new state.

2.5.3 To qualify for the ballot, the draft proposal shall fulfill the requirements of a state constitutional ini­tiative. The requirements shall be adjusted for consistency with their application to the proposed new state. Signature require­ments shall be appor­tioned according to the number of resident confederate citizens.


The erection of a new state is decided by the confederate citizens resident within the boun­daries of the proposed new state.


If erected the new state comes into exis­tence as a member state of the Confederation.


A resident confederate citizen automatically becomes a state citizen unless he elects to retain his existing state citizenship.


All real estate within the proposed boundaries becomes part of the territory of the newly erected state, except that the owner of non-contested real estate may elect to retain his existing territorial affiliation.


Decisions relating to the amalgamation of two or mores states follow the rules for cons­titutional amendments within each state.
