The Declaration of independence of the Principality of Sancratosia (Lingua Franca Nova: Declara de la nondepende de la Prinsia de Sancratosia) is the document that pronounces the independence of the Principality of Sancratosia and outlines the reasons for independence as well as a few enunciations on the form of government.
When the decision was taken on 21 October 2021 to begin the process of establishing a sovereign nation, the idea of writing a declaration of independence was not considered. The writing of the Constitution was deemed of a higher importance. This decision lead to the delay in the declaration of independence of Sancratosia since much of the energy was being spent on the research for the Constitution.
The document was thought for a few days and written in about two days. Few modifications occurred from the first drafts to the final declaration. One of the main changes was the inclusion of a a denunciation of the acts of representatives in the Assemblée nationale du Québec. This was done especially following the introduction of the Projet de loi no 2, Loi portant sur la réforme du droit de la famille en matière de filiation et modifiant le Code civil en matière de droits de la personnalité et d'état civil (English: Bill 2, An Act to reform family law with respect to filiation and to amend the Civil Code with respect to personality rights and civil status) which, at the time, presented a setback for the rights of transgender individuals in Quebec. The bill had been revised earlier in November but it was deemed essential to the declaration. The wording was eventually changed to a denunciation of non-respect of rights in general in Canada which would encompass both the provincial and federal governments.
On 1 December 2021, following the signature of Princess Cloe, the declaration came into effect and was published on the official website of the Principality and released on social media platforms Twitter and Facebook.
The text is divided in three sections, the Considerations the Declaration and the Signature. The declaration is signed : Cloe, by the will of the people, Sovereign Princess of Sancratosia.[a]
