Sabini (/saˈbiː.niː/ suh-BEE-nee), officially the Free State of Sabini, is a self-declared sovereign state as defined by the declarative theory, as such it is classified as a micronation consisting of 4 non-contiguous provinces and one territorial island. It is a landlocked country with its capital, Gema, sitting between the Trinity River and the Sabine River in North America. The largest province, Andrin, lies in the valley between the Eagle Mountains and Quitman Mountains in the southern part of North America.

Sabini was established on November 23, 2019 and officially declared its independence from the United States (US) on January 11, 2020 but they continue to conduct open trade with the US. The nation of Sabini has an agreement to pay a nominal annual fee to the US to suppress overseas foreign invasion but still maintains it's own military (Sabini Armed Forces) for defense of its borders.

Sabini has a Unitary Republic form of Government, as per it’s constitution. It is headed by a President and a Citizen’s Council (C.C.). The C.C. is a unicameral legislature. Meaning it is both the Legislative and Judicial head with the responsibly of passing laws and judgment against violations of those laws.

Citizenship is completely voluntary. Only residents within the borders of Sabini can become Citizens but Citizenship is not required for residency. Any national resident of competent age, as declared in the constitution, may become a Citizen and part of the Citizen's Council. Taxes are only imposed on the voluntary Citizenry of the Citizen’s Council. Those Citizens also get the privilege of voting on the State’s affairs, elections, and other such items.

The Free State of Sabini is a member of the Union Against Micronational War in an effort to help sovereign nations establish themselves. They strive to abide by the Non-Aggression Principle (N.A.P.) in all foreign matters and implement a strictly defensive standpoint. They have also become a signatory to the Wrythe Convention, the Edgbaston Convention and the Atlanta Regional Union.

The nation falls under classification 10 on the Boodlesmythe-Tallini Classification, making it a 5th world nation. They rate in at a 3.9 rating on the Dresner's System of Classification and a 3.86 on the Economic Potential Index.

History

Kichai region

Native Americans

The Kichai tribe (also Keechi or Kitsai) was a Native American Southern Plains tribe that inhabited the current location of the Sabini capital and surrounding areas.

Their name for themselves was K'itaish, and they are most closely related to the Pawnee. French explorers encountered them on the Red River in Louisiana in 1701. By 1772, they primarily settled east of the Trinity River, near present day Gema, Sabini.





Spanish New Philippines

Spanish New Philippines (1690-1821)

During Spanish colonial rule, in the 18th century, the area was known as Nuevas Filipinas ("New Philippines"). It was Margil de Jesus who first referred to the area as Nuevas Filipinas. In a letter to the viceroy of New Spain in 1716, he wrote that his work might gain the patronage of King Philip V so he might, “for the greater glory of God and the name of our Catholic Monarch,” transform the territory into “another new Philippines.” A Franciscan embassy to the viceroy expressed their “great hopes that this province shall be a New Philippines.”

“Nuevas Filipinas” first appeared in an official 1718 document that gave instructions to governor Martin de Alarcon to reinforce the colony. Alarcon gave himself the grand title “Governor and Lieutenant Captain General of the Provinces of Coahuila, New Kingdom of the Philippines, Province of the Texas.” His capital was San Antonio de Bexar (modern-day San Antonio). In the next 40 years or so, the province was regularly referred to as “Nuevas Filipinas” in official documents.

Toward the end of the 18th century, the name gradually fell out of use. By the early 1800s, it could be found in only a few land grants. Other legal documents preferred to use only the name “Texas”.


Mexico Independence (1821- 1836)

Mexico Independence

In 1821, Mexico gained independence from Spain after the brutal and destructive Mexican War for Independence, which began in 1810.

Approximately 3,500 settlers lived in the whole of Tejas, concentrated mostly in San Antonio and La Bahia, although authorities had tried to encourage development along the frontier. The settler population was overwhelmingly outnumbered by indigenous people in the province. To increase settler numbers, Mexico enacted the General Colonization Law in 1824, which enabled all heads of household, regardless of race, religion or immigrant status, to acquire land in Mexico.

The new Mexican government was bankrupt and had little money to devote to the military. Settlers were empowered to create their own militias to help control hostile Native American tribes. Texas faced raids from both the Apache and Comanche tribes, and with little military support the few settlers in the region needed help. In the hopes that an influx of settlers could control the Indian raids, the government liberalized its immigration policies for the region for the first time, and settlers from the United States were permitted in the colonies for the first time.

Republic of Texas

Republic of Texas (1836-1846)

The Republic of Texas (Spanish: República de Tejas) was a sovereign state in North America that existed from March 2, 1836, after breaking away from Mexico in the Texas Revolution, to February 19, 1846, although Mexico considered it a rebellious province during its entire existence. It was bordered by Mexico to the west and southwest, the Gulf of Mexico to the southeast, the two U.S. states of Louisiana and Arkansas to the east and northeast, and United States territories encompassing parts of the current U.S. states of Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, and New Mexico to the north and west. The citizens of the republic were known as Texians.

Internal politics of the Republic centered on two factions. The nationalist faction, led by Lamar, advocated the continued independence of Texas, the expulsion of the Native Americans (Indians), and the expansion of Texas to the Pacific Ocean. Their opponents, led by Houston, advocated the annexation of Texas to the United States and peaceful coexistence with the Indians, when possible. The Texas Congress even passed a resolution over Houston's veto claiming the Californias for Texas. The 1844 presidential election split the electorate dramatically, with the newer western regions of the Republic preferring the nationalist candidate Edward Burleson, while the cotton country, particularly east of the Trinity River, went for Anson Jones.

Citizenship was not automatically granted to all previous inhabitants of Texas and some residents were not allowed to continue living legally within the Republic without the consent of Congress. The Constitution of the Republic of Texas (1836) established different rights according to the race and ethnicity of each individual. Section 10 of the General Provisions of the Constitution stated that all persons who resided in Texas on the day of the Declaration of Independence were considered citizens of the Republic, excepting "Africans, the descendants of Africans, and Indians." For new white immigrants, section 6 established that, to become citizens, they needed to live in the Republic for at least six months and take an oath. While regarding the black population, section 9 established that black persons who were brought to Texas as slaves were to remain slaves and that not even their owner could emancipate them without the consent of Congress. Furthermore, the Congress was not allowed to make laws that affected the slave trade or declare emancipation. Section 9 also established that: "No free person of African descent, either in whole or in part, shall be permitted to reside permanently in the Republic, without the consent of Congress."

U.S. Statehood of Texas

U.S. Statehood (1845-1861)

In 1845, the Republic of Texas was annexed to the United States of America, becoming the 28th U.S. state. Border disputes between the new state and Mexico, which had never recognized Texas independence and still considered the area a renegade Mexican state, led to the Mexican–American War (1846–1848). When the war concluded, Mexico relinquished its claim on Texas, as well as other regions in what is now the southwestern United States. Texas' annexation as a state that tolerated slavery had caused tension in the United States among slave states and those that did not allow slavery. The tension was partially defused with the Compromise of 1850, in which Texas ceded some of its territory to the federal government to become non-slave-owning areas but gained El Paso.

A year after the Texas Revolution, an ambassador from Texas approached the United States about the possibility of becoming an American state. Fearing a war with Mexico, which did not recognize Texas independence, the United States declined the offer. In 1844, James K. Polk was elected the United States president after promising to annex Texas. Before he assumed office, the outgoing president, John Tyler, entered negotiations with Texas. On February 26, 1845, six days before Polk took office, the U.S. Congress approved the annexation. The Texas legislature approved annexation in July 1845 and constructed a state constitution. In October, Texas residents approved the annexation and the new constitution, and Texas was officially inducted into the United States on December 29, 1845.

American Civil War

American Civil War (1861-1865)

Texas declared its secession from the Union on February 1, 1861, and joined the Confederate States on March 2, 1861, after it replaced its governor, Sam Houston, when he refused to take an oath of allegiance to the Confederacy. As with those of other States, the Declaration was not recognized by the United States government at Washington. Some Texan military units fought in the Civil War east of the Mississippi River, but Texas was most useful for supplying soldiers and horses for Confederate forces. Texas' supply role lasted until mid-1863, after which time Union gunboats controlled the Mississippi River, making large transfers of men, horses or cattle impossible. Some cotton was sold in Mexico, but most of the crop became useless because of the Union naval blockade of Galveston, Houston, and other ports.

Federal troops didn't arrive in Texas to restore order until June 19, 1865, when Union Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger and 2,000 Union soldiers arrived on Galveston Island to take possession of the state and enforce the new freedoms of former slaves. The Texas holiday Juneteenth commemorates this date. The Stars and Stripes were not raised over Austin until June 25.

President Andrew Johnson appointed Union General Andrew J. Hamilton, a prominent politician before the war, as the provisional governor on June 17. He granted amnesty to ex-Confederates if they promised to support the Union in the future, appointing some to office. On March 30, 1870, the United States Congress permitted Texas' representatives to take their seat in Congress, although Texas did not meet all the formal requirements for readmission.

Reunion with United States (1865–2020)

Following the defeat of the Confederate States in the American Civil War, Texas was mandated to rejoin the United States of America.

Certainly Reconstruction was abnormal for the people of the South. Slavery was abolished and blacks were given some limited rights. Reconstruction governments, imposed by the North, pursued active government policies that resulted in higher taxes. Reconstruction governments were relatively powerful in comparison to the weak, inactive antebellum governments Southerners had always preferred. The traditional political leaders of the South were temporarily disfranchised and blacks temporarily enfranchised.

Yet, when considered unemotionally from a historical perspective, the Reconstruction experience was very moderate compared to what it could have been. There were no mass executions of rebel leaders or ex-Confederate soldiers. There was no nationalization or appropriation of plantation lands by the victors. The North declined to force reparation payments on the defeated South.

All in all, Reconstruction, while exceedingly unpopular in the South, was quite moderate. The myth of Reconstruction arose from the emotional burden of defeat, the abolition of slavery, and the recognition that the North, because of population increases and industrialization, now was the strongest section of the nation. The South was no longer an equal partner.

In 1901, the Democratic-dominated state legislature passed a bill requiring payment of a poll tax for voting, which effectively disenfranchised most blacks and many poor whites and Latinos. In addition, the legislature established white primaries, ensuring minorities were excluded from the formal political process. The number of voters dropped dramatically, and the Democrats crushed competition from the Republican and Populist parties. The Socialist Party became the second-largest party in Texas after 1912, coinciding with a large socialist upsurge in the United States during fierce battles in the labor movement and the popularity of national heroes like Eugene V. Debs. The Socialists' popularity soon waned after their vilification by the United States government for their opposition to US involvement in World War I.

World War II had a dramatic impact on Texas, as federal money poured in to build military bases, munitions factories, POW detention camps and Army hospitals; 750,000 young men left for service; the cities exploded with new industry; the colleges took on new roles; and hundreds of thousands of poor farmers left the fields for much better-paying war jobs, never to return to agriculture. Texas manufactured 3.1 percent of total United States military armaments produced during World War II, ranking eleventh among the 48 states.

Beginning around the mid-20th century, Texas began to transform from a rural and agricultural state to one urban and industrialized. The state's population grew quickly during this period, with large levels of migration from outside the state. As a part of the Sun Belt, Texas experienced strong economic growth, particularly during the 1970s and early 1980s. Texas's economy diversified, lessening its reliance on the petroleum industry. By 1990, Hispanics overtook blacks to become the largest minority group in the state.

During the late 20th century, the Republican Party replaced the Democratic Party as the dominant party in the state, as the latter became more politically liberal and as demographic changes favored the former.

Sabini Independence (2020-Present)

Due to the many infractions against the constitution by the federal, and state governments, of the United States over many years it was decides to declare independence from the corruption and create a new Sovereign and Independent State. The idea of independence started in November of 2019 when the framers had researched the idea and requirements to be recognized as an independent country. Following the requirements of a sovereign state in the Montevideo Convention by having (a) a permanent population; (b) a defined territory; (c) government; and (d) capacity to enter into relations with the other states, Sabini was able to declare its independence on January 11, 2020 when a constitution had been written along with a deceleration of independence. Sabini has gained recognition from at least 15 countries and has treaties with five independent countries.

Economy

The constitution prevents the government from coining money of its own. Citizens and Nationals are free to use the currencies agreed upon by all parties involved. The Country does utilize the USD as one of its main forms of currency as it is readily available and used for government transactions along with a silver standard (SIL). The silver standard used by Sabini is based on troy weight. Names are given to specific weights for ease of use starting with the primary unit (one gram), the 'siliqua'.
