History

Signing of the Letter of Alliance on 7 May 1334. This letter represents the beginning of the Nordmarques Confederation. It was signed by seven councillors of the City of Norfield; by three councillors and admiral Williams of Neufchastel and by saint Edward I, Duke of Anderton. The Letter was acclaimed by the representatives of mountainous areas of Arolla, Amont, Wald and signed on their behalf by Firmin of North Crawley, monk of Mittelberg Abbey. The Alliance was then blessed by saint John IV (bishop of Norfield and abbot of St. Timothy's Abbey), by Mark II (abbot of Cwenburh Abbey) and by Paul of Elyf (bishop of Awarica).

National anthem

Thomas II in archducal robes (by A. Kolinsky)

Fair liberty,
beloved liberty,
liberty sweetly avowed,
thou are the treasured gift that God to us endowed.


All our glory is thy true creation,
to our Home thou are all the decoration.


No silver nor gold, not life itself could replace
the reward of thy pure and sublime grace.

Politics

The Federal Constitution adopted in 1831 is the legal foundation of the modern federal state. A new Nordmarques Constitution was adopted in 1995, but did not introduce notable changes to the federal structure. It outlines basic and political rights of individuals and citizen participation in public affairs, divides the powers between the Confederation and the states and defines federal jurisdiction and authority.

Direct democracy and federalism are hallmarks of the Nordmarques political system. Nordmarques citizens are subject to three legal jurisdictions: the municipality, state and federal levels.

There are three main governing bodies on the federal level: the bicameral parliament (legislative), the Council (executive) and the Court (judicial).

The Federal Council

The Council is the seven-member executive council that constitutes the federal government of the Confederation and serves as the collective executive head of government and state of Nordmark. While the entire council is responsible for leading the federal administration of Nordmark, each Councillor heads one of the seven federal executive departments. The position of Federal President is hold by the Prince of Nordmark.
