Amendment 26: Territorial Freedom

1.1. All territories may by law establish courts.
1.1.1. These courts may only try crimes which are illegal in that territory, but not on a federal level. Only the Union High Court may try federal crimes.

2. The Founder may create, remove, annex, combine, or disassociate any territories from the Union, except for the capital territory and states, at their discretion.
3. Territorial classifications (except those defined herein), with differing levels of sovereignty, may be created, modified, or removed at the discretion of the Founder or High Commissioner.

6.1. RGBN and Heart are the only states.
7. Provinces shall exist as semi-sovereign entities. They may be led by a Governor, appointed by the Founder, put under direct Federal Government control at the order of the same, or have their own governments with power over all matters, except those concerning foreign relations and defence.
