Sabina's constitution requires that Sabina respects the soverity of the Kingdom of Spain over the land as long as the nation can visibly exist over it. Sabina was also founded on that basis that it would be a beacon of european identity. Most Sabinese are settlers from Britian, so English was always an official language along with Spanish and Catalan.
