The Laws of New Worcester

The Laws of New Worcester:
	
Preamble:

	Verily, the Monarch, through lawful ways and through a long 

and justice filled

Second Constitutional Congress, has founded the Laws of New Worcester 

to replace the

Constitution of the New Worcester Kingdom as the new Supreme Law of 

the New Worcester

Kingdom.

	And as such, the Articles of Esterite Chiefdom which were 

decided during this Second

Constitutional Congress as replacing the Constitution of the New 

Worcester Kingdom, was never

signed or officially accepted and as such, this Laws of New Worcester 

is the only official

constitution governing the New Worcester Kingdom. 

	The Articles of Esterite Chiefdom were too long and had too 

many articles. It

overcomplicated the government and made too many elections necessary. 

Instead of this, the

Laws of New Worcester shall keep the government simple in essence but 

also in the line of

justice, respecting everyone’s human rights and in the name of  

unwritten decency.

	So, in doing so, We shall form a most perfect constitution, 

consisting of the highest laws

of this micronation, or if times come so, nation. 

	We the Tribesmen, the Citizens, the People.... of the New

Worcester Kingdom and all of the provinces, colonies and territories 

governed by this entity, for
