Article Two:
The Kingdom of Habakkuk

Section 1: The Stile of this Republic-Kingdom shall be: “The Ancient Republic-Kingdom of Upper and Lower Habakkuk in Amon-Ra”. In Vocatae, it is: “Muth Benorsid Amanrae Nilo cub Paga Habacucae Solisiv”. In Habakkukian, it is: “Obal-Habakkuk at Genshu ul Kabinet Behinamonra unt-boz”.

Section 2: The Ancient Republic-Kingdom of Upper and Lower Habakkuk in Amon-Ra is a micronation, which is a community of people having fun by doing things similar to what stupid nations (macronations) do, except on a smaller and more enriching scale. It is an eternal whirlpool of pleasure, revolving around a single point, Pharaoh.

Section 3: Pharaoh is none other than the literal successor to the Throne of the New Worcester Kingdom.

Section 4: This nation is based upon the principle of senior authority. This means that although it is divided into Executive, Judicial, and Legislative, it’s authority runs down a chain of command. The senior authority is the Pharaoh. All citizens must respect his wishes, although not all are authoritative. The second authority is the two Governors, which are appointed by him. The third authority is the President, his Cabinet and the Vice President. The fourth authority is the Council of Amon-Ra. The fifth authority is the Senate. These are the High Authorities. Below them are the Tribes. The head of each Tribe is the member of the Council of Amon-Ra of that name.


Article Three:
The Office of Pharaoh

Section 1: The title of the Supreme Head of State and Ruler of this nation is: “_______(name) His Most Glorious Majesty, by the Grace of Amon-Ra, Pharaoh of the Ancient Republic-Kingdom of Upper and Lower Habakkuk in Amon-Ra, Defender of the Faith, Grand Duke of the City of Worcester, hereditary claimant to the throne of the New Worcester Kingdom, servant of Joseph, head of the armed forces, and the Most Gracious image of Horus on earth.” (Hereafter called Pharaoh).

Section 2: The Office of Pharaoh shall consist of Pharaoh and two Governors. Their appointments are to be filled by Pharaoh in a public declaration. These Governors are his assistants. They are to assist him in other appointments and to help run the government. He may delegate authority upon either or both of the two Governors when necessary. He may also dismiss them and then appoint others to fill their places.

Section 3: Pharaoh shall be considered as Master of the Senate, and if meeting in a physical location, the Senate shall always prepare an extra chair specifically for Pharaoh, whether or not he be present.

Section 4: Pharaoh shall have the right to make a National Speech every second of August and other times when events warrant, grant pardons and titles of nobility, choose citizens to be his personal slaves, dissolve the Senate, declare national holidays and to appoint lords, earls, dukes, barons, foresters, pashas, khedives, viceroys, sheriffs, bailiffs, constables, abbots, stewards, knights, masters of the Knights Templar, personal servants and all hereditary titles.

Section 5: Before there is a sufficient population (seventeen persons), Pharaoh shall be Dictator and One-Man Senate; Pharaoh shall have all the Powers of the Senate and may propose legislation. He shall, in such a case, have all power to declare War and appoint officers of the government.

Section 6: Pharaoh may appoint his successor if necessary, as when King *************** I appointed King William I. However, when there is no written appointment, the successor shall be the eldest Son of the ruling Pharaoh, according to primogeniture.

Section 8: Before the Pharaoh enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:—“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of Pharaoh of the Ancient Republic-Kingdom of Upper and Lower Habakkuk in Amon-Ra, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Articles of Eternal Union of the Ancient Republic-Kingdom of Upper and Lower Habakkuk in Amon-Ra.”

In which case, the less senior member of the Council of Amon-Ra, called the Simeon, shall then be ordained to the Office of Vice President of the Ancient Republic-Kingdom of Upper and Lower Habakkuk in Amon-Ra. In Case of the Removal of the President from Office, or of his Death or Resignation of the Powers and Duties of said Office, and there shall be a Vice President, then the same shall devolve on the Vice President, who shall be ordained as President of the Ancient Republic-Kingdom of Upper and Lower Habakkuk in Amon-Ra no more than one month afterward.
