The Second Republic of Sovermia
4 Government Circle, Gelnopolja
Greetings, Sovermians and other friends of our nation. As the first president of our Second Republic, I welcome you, even as you have welcomed me to this new era for Sovermia. Our transitional government deserves commendation for bringing us to this point in our history smoothly and without undue disruption to the nation. The considered changes now ratified and part of our Constitution, along with our grateful recognition of all that has stood the test of our first two decades and that remains part of the character of Sovermia and its people, will help secure a bright and thriving future the next two decades and beyond — if we embrace the heritage we have received and continue to hold it in our hearts as the branding of experience and wisdom.
We note with sympathy and respect the formal dissolution of the Principality of Hutt River on 3 August 2020. As one of the first and most visible micronations of modern times, the Principality helped to shape perceptions of micronational goals and identity. May we learn as well from this transition to take careful thought for our own micronational futures, and support rather than disparage our fellow micronationalists and their endeavors. Can we — will we — guide by example?
As I write this, a late August rain is ending. Lakes and ponds are still low, but our gardens and orchards ripen towards fullness. May our best be yet to come, through our efforts and love for our land and its people.
