    The Lake Prime Declaration
    A Declaration to the World by the United and Faithful Dominions of Sutherland

    It is by peace that nations come into their own and rise to face the challenges that unite a people. It is in the face of chaos and destruction that a people reject this reality as absolute and work to build something in audacious opposition. Through the gifts of human reason and the charity of faith overcoming this can become a reality and make known the way for a future of greatness and success.

    This unilateral declaration has become necessary as the deliberations with the McMasterdonian crown have proved unable to provide this desired future for Sutherland, a robust people who desire much more than what McMasterdonia is willing to allow and tolerate. It is with great joy, respect, and courage the we the Sutherlan people no longer remain privy to that McMasterdonian struggle for tolerance and understanding.

    As of today, this Sutherland Federation declares its unconditional separation from McMasterdonia without any other consideration.
    The Sutherlan potential has become too strong to be tethered by the old world order any longer. We as a united people among the dominions reach for a future that is greater than our present time and only by removing the shackles of old ideas and limited understandings may we do that. It begins here through the breathing and living promise of this document. The ink on this page is a testament to what it is Sutherland can and will become through the help of friendly nations and a faith unshakable.

    The faith that leads us may set us apart from many others in this world, it may be misunderstood or opposed, but we see its beauty and guiding nature to that which is better than what is of now. It is this guidance that brought Sutherland together in the first place, and it shall continue to be like the star in the distance. We may lose sight of it if only for a moment, but we are determined to always find it again and pave the way forward. We the people in the cities and in the fields unite as one to overcome those shadows of our past and know only what is good for ourselves, our children, and those who come after.

    We depart from this conflict in every way. We wish McMasterdonia well in all that it wishes to accomplish for its people, but we will have no part in it for we see a good very different from our southern neighbor, and we must seek it out for in it we see something too precious to give up. May God be with McMasterdonia and lead the nation to where it must go. We pray that He may lead Sutherland as well for our hope knows it shall be, and our faith seals this reality in our hearts.

    Go forth all Sutherlan people and live out the truth. Worry no more of foreign oppression but only freedom and all that awaits us in it. Our chance is now and our certainty a foundation. We stride on only by grace. Let all these things be known in the hearts and minds of all nations, but most of all let them know that:

    Sutherland is free!

    International Compact
    Here let all nations that affirm Sutherland's free status be listed by signature of their leader or a representative therein.

    Your Excellency,

    While Goyanes has already affirmed the independence of Sutherland in the past, by participating in the Eras Society of Honorable Nations, and the establishment of an embassy and consular presence, we still believe it just to provide our confirmation that we recognize Sutherland as an independent and sovereign nation state. We offer our full support and express the best of luck as Sutherland develops its international presence. We look forward to continue working with both the Government of Sutherland and yourself.

    Good things come to those who wait,
    Ken Lorge

    From the Midranean government
    Despite how close the McMasterdonian government is to our government, and despite how important of an ally McMasterdonia is; we in the Democratic Districts of Midir support the Sutherland Federation's move to officially seperate from McMasterdonia due to the fact that we believe that self determination is a right that should be afforded to all people.

    The Kingdom of McMasterdonia does not recognise or accept the independent sovereignty of the province of Sutherland and asserts our right to protect our territorial integrity.

    The Kingdom acknowledges that the following nations have accepted this unilateral and illegal declaration of independence:
    1. The Imperial Goyanean Federation
    2. The Syrixian Empire
    3. The Kingdom of Prydania
    4. The State of Iraelia
    5. The Dominion of Sundred
    6. The Democratic Districts of Midir
    7. The Crowned Republic of Highton

    The Kingdom orders that the Embassy and Consular staff of all of the aforementioned be reduced by 20% within 48 hours. In addition, all military advisers in The Kingdom on behalf of The Syrixian Empire are ordered to immediately leave the Kingdom.

    The Kingdom will remember this betrayal and the failure of the international community to protect the territorial integrity of a legitimate nation state. On this occasion, the international community has partnered with theocratic rule, instead of supporting and defending a secular state under siege.

    This is truly a sad day for the international community and The Kingdom of McMasterdonia.

    Statement from the Minister of Foreign Affairs
    After much discussion, His Majesty's Government has decided that the territory of the Kingdom of McMasterdonia, our ally, must not be violated nor torn apart by religious separatists.

    We strongly condemn the actions of the separatists and hope that a conclusion amicable to all parties is reachable. We urge our allies in McMasterdonia to look into the question of the supposed persecution of religious minorities there and to put to any conflict or hostility.

    We regret that many other nations have decided to insult the territorial integrity of the Kingdom of McMasterdonia by rushing to recognize the illegal actions of separatists without consulting the central government first. We urge all other nations making such a move to reverse their actions immediately.

    Minister for Foreign Affairs

    Trokhym Vuorela Announces The National Councils Decision on Sutherland recognition
    To the surprise of most of the atheist communities within Valamo, the Speaker of the National Council of the Commune, Trokhym Vuorela has announced the Commune's decision to recognize Sutherland independence.

    According to Trokhym's announcement, the proposal was initially met with confusion, due to Valamo's stance on religion. After numerous debates that continued for a few days, and no progress on the debate being made, it was decided to have a vote for the Council. With representatives from the "National Party of Socialists and Anarchists", the "Social Reform Party", the "National Republic Party", and the "Democratic Party" handling the vote, 60% of the Council had voted in favor for Sutherland Independence.

    Additionally, Trokhym later stated during his announcement, "Whilst the Commune is not particularly religious in terms of its official stance, We are willing to overlook it, in the face of future diplomacy, trade, and to support the independence of nations that were stuck in the imperialism of the various empires and kingdoms in the world." Trokhym later said that the Commune was willing to trade and establish relations between the two nations.

    Samtök Reykja Fullvalda Dax Recognition of The Sutherland Federation

    It was with a joyful heart that I communicate the full and unconditional recognition by Dax, of The Sutherland Federation, as a free people, a free culture, a free nation. A resolution today has passed in Nýtt Beaconsviði with unanimity officially acknowledging and respecting the Lake Prime Declaration as part of our Affirmation of Freedom. Self determination is a thing which our government recognizes as a clearly superior status to the alternatives and it is in this spirit that we wish the people of Sutherland nothing short of prosperity and stability in the decades to come.

    Signed,
    Klemenz Bech,
    President of The Samtök Reykja Fullvalda Dax
