The Saspearian Declaration of Independence is the pronouncement adopted by the Government of Saspearian. This Declaration was written, signed, and enacted on 20 October 2017 by what was described as its "Congress", to formally announce the separation of Saspearian from the United States of America. The United States declaration of independence greatly influenced this pronouncement as described in the similar writing and the type of ideals that reflect on the document. Despite the claims of Saspearian being sovereign from America, there hasn't been a response from behalf of the US Government, thus making the document a unilateral declaration of independence.
In total, 7 signatories from the Saspearian Congress ratified the Saspearian Declaration of Independence, the author of the Declaration, Emperor Anthony I would later go on to become inaugurated as the new nation's leader and would become the First Emperor of Saspearian.
In 2016, Anthony Gaitan started to have an idea regarding the establishment of a sovereign nation, lead by himself as Emperor with intentions and vision set for the country as a whole, after getting inspiration from the stories of micronations such as Molossia and the Empire of Austenasia. The first main motive for the creation of a new country is to act as a haven due to the rising political divide in the United States during this period. Then, in 2017, there was the plausibility of a Second American Civil War which further lead Anthony to decide of his concept about creating a nation. The second major reasoning for the creation of Saspearian was to greatly improve the social environment of the world, and attempt to make it a better place. He was also influenced by the Republic of Texas and states it as a major influence on the development of Saspearian.
Saspearian likely had some internal and external activity in August to October of 2017; and during this time Saspearian had a website, the Saspearian Broadcasting Company was created, they attempted to build foreign relations in the community, and claimed that it was a new country. Then on the morning of 20 October 2017, 13-year old Anthony Gaitan started to create its declaration of independence to formally establish the nation and to 'declare independence from the United States' to announce Saspearian's sovereignty from America. It was likely a few minutes after the creation of the document that Anthony had to arrive at his then Middle School.
Later that same day at around noon CST, Anthony arrived in the Cafeteria during the 8th Grade lunch period and quickly formed the 'Saspearian Congress' at his table, most of the founding fathers signed the Declaration during this time. Several minutes had passed, and Anthony had to go to class and carried the document with him.
A few hours passed by and the school had just ended for the day, Anthony walked out of school and saw Sebastian Henao and told him about the Saspearian Declaration of Independence. Anthony asked him if he wanted to participate, and Sebastian decided to sign the document; thus making him the last signatory of the Declaration.
It was then at around 5-7 PM CST, that Anthony came to what is now known as Unueco, Saspearian; the document was starting to be written by Anthony, who had gotten some inspiration from the United States declaration of independence. It shared the similar central themes of freedom and liberty, then the final touches were added to the declaration. Shortly after it was written Anthony began to read the document from beginning to end in a speech thus announcing the separation of Saspearian from America.
The declaration of independence explains the basic fundamental rights of Saspearian and represents all of the ambitions for the nation as an entity. The first section is the Introduction which is the title, delegation, and date that the document was published on. The second section is the Explanation which describes the purpose of the Declaration, then is followed by the Saspearian Congress's ratifications.
"Us the people of Saspearian. Believe everyone shall have equal rights, They [sic] have rights to live, and theyre [sic] rights to have freedom. Everyone in this nation shall respect others and live there to the limit. Us the people of Saspearian is allowed to collaborate, show free thoughts and ideas. We should always welcome our neighbors. Even if our nation is through rough times. This nation is destined for greatness. We can surely predict the future of Saspearian. Everyone here in this nation will have their own rights for freedom and unity."
