Question: – Good morning. I think the first question is a must. The proclamation of this Independent Republic Is it a joke, a sociological experiment or what exactly?
Answer: Good morning; You can take it as you see fit, but it is based on International Law and is absolutely real, legal and operational.
Question: Has the recognition of REML by a State of the EC been decisive for the establishment of this Republic?
Answer: Article 3 of the Montevideo Convention already defines that the political existence of a State is independent of its recognition by other States.
Question: – Can you confirm that REML is actually a legally constituted State under International law?
Answer: It is indisputable. The legal reports conclude that there is no doubt that it is a perfectly legal State in accordance with International Law. You can contrast it with experts; REML is a State with full rights.
Question: Can you prove it?
Answer: Certainly. The Legislation is very clear in this regard. In its proclamation, REML legitimately fulfills each of the requirements of Article 1 of the Montevideo Convention that establishes the definition of State:
Article 1. The State as a person of International Law must meet the following requirements:
I. – Permanent population.
II. —Determined territory.
IV. —Ability to enter into relations with other States.
Under these guidelines, any entity that meets these criteria can be considered a sovereign state under international law, whether or not it has been recognized by other states.
I- Permanent population: It is obvious. The REML population is always present and is never absent from its Republic. Any other state is more likely to be uninhabited before REML.
II-Determined Territory: Perfectly defined in the proclamation of Independence.
III- Government: With permanent plenipotentiary powers.
IV- Ability to enter into relations with other States: Accredited with the documentation addressed and presented to the Ministry of a member State of the EC and its official response.
We can conclude that REML complies with all the requirements of the Montevideo Convention.
Question: Is the Official Documentation that you present really true?
Answer: If you do not believe it, you can verify it in the General Property Registry of the Ministry. Your files are public.
Question: Has REML been recognized by a member state of the EC has been decisive for the establishment of this Republic?
Answer: In fact, the official response of your Ministry ratifies and highlights the relationship capacity of both States. The recognition and certification of the Montevideo Convention is implicit.
In any case, Article 3 already defines that the political existence of a State is independent of its recognition by other States.
REML was already Independent before that. The only thing that, out of deference, we communicated to our native country the Sovereign process and its Ministry responded kindly confirming the REML rights and accepting their legal validity. But that is only an internal procedure for you, not ours. They could also have notified that they do not recognize anything, that does not affect us. It is just a courtesy protocol communication between Nations. However, the attention and kindness in responding to our Declaration of Independence and recognizing our Republic we value it positively and we maintain excellent diplomatic relations.
Proof of this is Article 1 coinciding with both Constitutions, a sample of bilateral harmony.
(N.R. in the two Constitutions Art.1: Sovereignty resides in the people)
Question: Does this recognition set a precedent or jurisprudence?
Answer: Actually, it is indifferent, as mentioned in Article 3 of the Montevideo Convention. Furthermore, if they now decided to annul those rights, it would not be possible under Article 6 which determines that the recognition of a State is irrevocable.
With your answer confirming the legal validity, the recognition is ratified de jure.
REML scrupulously abides by the Montevideo Convention.
Question: Is this model of self-proclamation of Independence freely available?
Answer: For each individual, yes. The Founding Document for the proclamation of the Independent Republic, back in 1999, already authorizes anyone who wants to self-proclaim their Independence to use the same name.
For commercial purposes, no. A few years later, a commercial furniture firm (N.R. Ikea) launched a campaign plagiarizing the concept. He had to withdraw the campaign for violation of REML rights.
Question: Why the name MENDA LERENDA?
Answer: Simply because that denomination empowers anyone who wants to use it to define themselves as REML.
(N.R. Menda Lerenda: Expression to refer to oneself)
Question: The Identification does not include the name of the holder. No photo.
Answer: True; only a numbering that matches the Certificate that guarantees its authenticity.
It was approved this way because it allows to reproduce each REML Identification identical to the original legitimized one. With all its attributes.
Includes a space for the signature that allows you to put the name if you wish.
But it is still a universal document valid for all and individualized for each.
Question: But that ID has a cost …
Answer: Issuing the Identification and its Certificate entails some expenses, plus the processing and shipping fees. It will not be this Republic that modifies historical facts.
Question: What historical facts?
Answer: Never was any independence free.
Question: Do you consider this cost adequate?
Answer: Don’t forget that you can always transfer your ID and get your revalued cost back.
Question: Why have you decided to keep your nationality?
Answer: Maintaining the Nationality of our old country is nothing more than streamlining bureaucracy. We avoid having to issue passports, driving licenses, validation of Titles and a long etcetera. For the same reason, no own currency is issued and any currency and other alternative forms of commercial transfers with neighboring countries are accepted. Just for simplicity. All documentation from the original country of each Sovereign is valid and operational. It allows interrelation with neighboring countries without administrative obstacles.
Simplicity, I already tell you. All the bureaucracy is reduced to processing the Identification and its Certificate.
Question: Then Identification as the only document is not enough.
Answer: I remind you that the Administration of each country may require the documentation it considers for its procedures.
No credential, be it Identification, DNI or Passport is universal safe-conduct for everything. Nor for outrages outside the Law. Each REML has its own Identification and associated certificate. Its use is the responsibility and responsibility of the user. Like all belonging to each one.
Question: Does REML hymn have?
Answer: It is an interesting question. In fact, we are going to propose it in the next plenary session of the Government to put it to a vote, which as you know ALWAYS has a consensus of 100%, absolute, the highest of all the world states. There has never been any manifestation against any approved or rejected proposal.
Question: If each REML is made up of a single person, don’t you think it is superfluous to mention that the decisions have a 100% consensus?
Answer: It never hurts to report it. Experience tells us that not always the fittest are those who make decisions in foreign affairs of State. It should be reminded that you are dealing with a real, full and sovereign State of Democracy at 100%. And highlight that this Independent Republic is the only State of Law where all its citizens are equal before the Law.
Question: Can REML be considered the smallest state in the world? After all, it only has as its territory the surface on which it has contact.
Answer: Good; that is relative. In fact, no matter how much I walk for kilometers, days or years, I am always within my country. No matter how far I travel, I never leave my own territory. And that does not happen in any other state, no matter how large.
Question: It is, therefore, a vast, vast large estate …
Answer: It is not exact either. In fact, REML only owns the surface on which it has contact, not another. If a neighboring nation does not like the territory on which I am, no problem, I move. If you don’t like it again, I’ll scroll again. But somewhere I will have to be like each one of the millions of inhabitants of each country. The territory that each REML Sovereign occupies is Independent and owned by their Republic. From there to abroad is abroad.
Question: So if it is your property, everyone can negotiate with it, sell it, transfer it, rent it. Isn’t that requisitioning territory from another country?
Answer: Well … neither. Nothing is requisitioned. I take ownership of the contact surface. If I am absent from that territory, it is no longer REML. If I want to sell the surface that I have under my feet, I must move to another place. And that old territory is no longer REML, the Republic is the territory that I now occupy. I cannot negotiate with any territory. I always have one. Even if I sustain myself from a balloon, without occupying any surface, either. With no contact under my feet, there is no REML surface, no REML territory. Only my attachment to the balloon is the REML, with which I have contact.
Question: Then I deduce that a REML Sovereign cannot dispose of his own lands.
Answer: Remember that you keep your dual nationality and with it you can acquire whatever you want, as everywhere. Also, you should not forget that each Independent Republic has its own Constitution, which you can modify whenever you want, therefore you cannot have more freedom of options.
Question: Won’t disputes over territory arise if Independent Republics are proclaimed everywhere?
Answer: In fact, if each inhabitant of a Country is a REML occupying millions of spaces, absolutely nothing changes in the territory, everything remains the same as now, each occupying his own place. No other.
They make up a community of Sovereigns, without any interference.
Question: But if the REML’s are inside another country, isn’t that an invasion?
Answer: There is no conflict. International Law supports it and another national sovereignty is not violated.
It is established that the mobile portion of the national territory of each country continues to belong to that Nation.
Vessels in foreign territorial waters and planes on foreign airspace or on land, remain the national territory of the country of their flag.
Just like an Embassy.
Legally, International Law protects REML’s to maintain their sovereignty within any Nation.
Question: So each REML is like a ship with the right of free navigation …
Answer: Exactly. His simile is very accurate.
The flag of convenience is internationally accepted legality and in use in all fleets in the world. You sail with the rules and sovereignty of your own country and respect international laws.
A REML fleet scattered everywhere operating under its own flag.
(NR Flags of convenience are those flags that correspond to registering a ship in a sovereign State other than that of the owner’s original nationality. International legislation establishes that the laws applicable to these ships are those of those countries in which they are flagged and registered, not in those where they operate or navigate.)
Question: Why do you have diplomatic status in foreign countries?
Answer: As a general rule, a Nation borders several countries. In the case of REMLs, all borders limit with a single foreign country, unless they have each foot in a different nation, which then limit with two.
Just as an Embassy in a foreign nation is surrounded by the same country. The legal form is the same. This is what the Vienna Convention on International Relations contemplates and expresses it clearly. Specifically in Articles 22 – 29 – 30 – 31 and 39. In other words, REML’s are always located identically to an Embassy within a foreign country.
Question: Is the blue link pin the official flag for all Independent Republics?
Answer: The blue flag with link is the original REML and is freely available to everyone. Then, you already know that each REML is sovereign of its own Constitution. You can choose to continue with that flag, such as developing your own banner.
Question: Do you consider that REML is capable of consolidating itself as an Independent Republic?
Answer: It will be seen.
At the moment we have been an Independent Republic for 20 years without valid arguments that refute its legitimacy.
Currently in the world there are countries with less seniority.
It’s more; no one harasses, harms, or alters their existence.
Everything continues as before.
Less for each sovereign who becomes independent from his vassalage without disturbing his neighbor.
Question: Well, it seems that some neighbor bothers you. Wikipedia entry is censored …
Answer: Yes, it is the only microstate censored. There must be a reason.
You know of the ancestral desire to dominate the human being.
And some may be disturbed by REML’s spreading and their power over others vanishing.
Question: What leads to authorizing that anyone can use the same REML name?
Answer: Easy. As each Sovereign by virtue of its own Constitution can adopt the name that it considers, authorized or not, the concession avoids international conflicts and we promote cordial relations between neighboring countries.
Question: Would you summarize all the time that has elapsed since its foundation?
Answer: Well, look, after the 20 years that the creation has gone practically unnoticed, and being the REML denomination freely available, current times have promoted initiatives of independent REML’s that on their own activate REML Blogs, REML Associations, REML Confederations, etc. that arise spontaneously. Even some of them with misrepresented data to cause controversy.
It is significant.
Question: Can you mention any evolution after these 20 years?
Answer: Basically technological. New times precipitate new media.
Internet supposed the possibility of international diffusion with the web. New technologies have also made it possible to implement a random numbering algorithm that distinguishes each Identification.
Question: For …?
Answer: Because the numbering of each REML Identification issued is systematically recorded. Thus, each one is protected individually with the same Rights already recognized according to Art. 11 of the Intellectual Property Law that allows updating it.
Question: Any more news?
Answer: Recently, in the summer solstice of 2020, SUN (Headquarters of the Union of Nations) has been established that allows interaction between Sovereign States that consider it.
Simply enter your identification data to access and it is free to participate.
Question: Speaking of that symbol that represents a Sun and an allusion to mobility with the compass rose. Don’t you think the N-S orientation is wrong?
Answer: Only statics believe that North is always in the same direction.
Question: To conclude; Is this an opportunity for new Rights?
Answer: Rights are not new, recognized or not, they have always been the same.
And homework too.
Well, I can only thank you for your time and explanations.
Thank you for your attention. I hope I have clarified the legitimacy of REML for you.
Actually, I was predisposed to meet a buffoonery, with forgiveness. But I discover a serious structure with a solid and well-argued foundation. It is a really unusual proposal, but it seems irrefutably grounded in accordance with the Law. The truth is that I am a bit puzzled. I have to assimilate it.
Well, if you have any doubts, I encourage you to contrast with experts in International Law.
Here is the evidence that shows REML’s legitimacy.
And don’t be fooled. A lawyer has to endorse your report with legal grounds.
There is no legislative impediment to veto that this Republic is a Sovereign State with full rights in which all can converge.
