DECLARATION of INDEPENDENCEEdit

for the Edit

OCEANIC CITIZENS REPUBLIC Edit

We hold these truths to be self-evident that all People are endowed with inherent, unalienable Rights: among these are Life, and the Pursuit of Happiness. Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter, to abolish, or to flee from it as they see fit and to institute new Government, laying its foundations on such Principles and Organizing its Powers in such form as to most likely secure their Rights, Safety and Happiness.

So it is with us: we are not seditionists. Our goal is not to alter or abolish the Powers of the Earth or to take from them anything save ourselves to build a new community of like-minded individuals who shall not rely on the accident of birth or geography to define each other as comrades; individuals who instead share a common belief in the Libertarian ideals of Freedom and Self-Determination and who desire to share in the common heritage of mankind on the Sea.

In contrast to this, the Powers of the Earth have invariably and relentlessly pursued the goal of Establishing an absolute Tyranny over the People of the earth! To prove this point, let facts speak for themselves and be submitted to a candid World:


They have passed Acts of Legislation regulating, taxing or criminalizing every field of human endeavor that could lead to personal freedom, stifling the intellectual curiosity and industry of individuals in favor of the scientific-technological elite in their employ;

The Powers of the Earth whose Characters are thus marked by every act which define Tyrants, are unfit to be the Rulers of a Free People. For these reasons, and oh so many more near, dear and personal, we therefore choose to flee: first in our hearts and minds and then with our fleets to the last frontier on earth, the Sea!


We the People, the Citizen Captains, Subject Citizens and Subjects of the “OCEANIC CITIZENS REPUBLIC”, do solemnly Publish and Declare, that we are and are of Right to be, Free and Independent People; that having formed a Free and Independent Republic assuming the responsibilities and privileges of a free and sovereign state as defined in Article 1 of the 1933 Montevideo Convention on Rights and Duties of States, have full authority to do the Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do, and for the support of this declaration, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
