Dear Republic, you are beautiful.
With your hills, your Delta.
Prosperous like a eagle,
I want just to say: I love you!'

The Declaration of Independence started it's construction in the first days of September, when the forces of the revolutionary front started to gain hope upon receiving a letter from the military forces saying that they will be on their part. The President of the Great Assembly ordered the General Binder Ioan to come to the his place to discuss Independence. The two staied approximately 2 hours thinking what to include. Thei remained at a little formal declaration that included just 5 rows, the rest being written by the great writer Colon Sirius. He wrote a poem that he "gave as a present for the independence of this great nation".
The Declaration of Independence was published in 2006 by the new gouverment after the elections of 2005. The President declared it as a sacred act and now it's stored in the Nation's archive. The tradition states that the independence can be distroyed just by the President, althoug, the President has little to no access and special procedures of handeling are called when is required. The Act was a scandal breaker being changed one time before it's final publishing. The first version is lost and no information about it are to be known. The new declaration is now kept in the Presidents office as a symbol of Istrian liberty and continuous change.
