Tzedek, officially the Kingdom of Tzedek, is a self-proclaimed micronation that was founded on 12 December 2013 by King Jacob I.
The term Tzedek comes from the Hebrew word Tzedek. It means justice and righteous
The Kingdom was declared independent in 2013 by King Jacob I, who then proceeded to create the constitution. On 13 December, two more people took office as Secretary of Security and General in Chief. The next day, the Prime Minister and Secretary of Parliament took office. Co-King Bradley took office some time in July, 2014.
Government & Politics
The Government is a constitutional monarchy with six seats in Parliament. All laws are passed through Parliament. The king in many ways acts like a president would with a congress.He may propose a new law, veto anything passed by parliament and, is the tie breaker on an indecision. Parliament needs at least 51% support to pass a bill and 100% support to pass a constitutional amendment. If any king in the future were to pass leaving no heirs, the secretary of parliament would take over as king or queen and the royal line should be carried through his/her bloodline.
