CupertinoGuide/Rights of Citizens
Thank you for your interest in the Cupertino Guide. We are currently moving to guides.micronations.wiki, please use that link if you want to see the Cupertino Guide in the future. The naming standard for the Cupertino Guide on guides.micronations.wiki will also be changed; refer to Guides:Changed naming standard.
Chapter 1 of the Cupertino Guide is currently being re-worked on to align with our standards set in Chapter 2; expect incomplete work and live construction. We hope that we can finish this as fast as possible. Thank you for your interest!
When making your constitution, you will need to decide what basic rights of your citizen your constitution will protect. There are many different rights commonly used in a constitution. You might want to think about what rights your citizens should be able to have.
These rights and freedoms are frequently granted by a government to its citizens:
- Freedom of speech
- Freedom of expression
- Freedom of movement
- Freedom of religion
- Right to vote (only used in constitutional monarchies or democracies usually)
- Right to privacy
- Freedom of the press
- Right to a fair trial
- Right to political affiliation
- Right to form a union
- Freedom from forced servitude
- Right to peaceful assembly
- Right to work
- Right to life
Which ones should I choose?
Choose the rights that you believe will lead to a prosperous and successful government! If you don't feel like doing that, you could adopt the UDHR, short for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which guarantees numerous rights to the citizens of its signatories. Overall, while they may depend between micronations, the rights of your nation's citizens are an issue that should not be left unnoticed.
