The Kingdom of Stratton is an absolute monarchy with 66 acres of territory in northeast Texas. The current population of the kingdom is 8. Most citizens reside in the United States, but there are also citizens in the Philippines and Afghanistan. The citizens are guaranteed certain untouchable rights, as follows

                                           The Monarchs shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition for a redress of grievances.

The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

These rights cannot be revoked by the Monarchs, as they are the rights of all people, regardless of citizenship status, nation of residence, nation of origin, age, gender, religion, or heritage. Any government that restricts or denies these rights is tyrannical.
