P.S.: "The Sacred Constitution of the Holy Empire of Reunion" is originally written in the Portuguese language. However, His Majesty's government feels that it is indeed necessary to have an English version of it, so that it can be read - and respected - by Reunian anglophone citizens. Also, many micronationalists have asked questions about our Magna Carta. That is why the Imperial Government decided to proceed with a translation - into the English Language - of the Constitution. This translation below is not an official document of the Holy Empire, serving only as a source of information to those who study Reunian Laws and Institutions.
