Laurencia, officially The National Christian Republic of Laurencia was a micronation based in Missouri, United States of America in the St. Louis area. The nation was founded on the belief in the Christian God and His sacred truth found in the pages of the Holy Bible. The nation was still similar in beliefs to its previous and current form and was no less accepting of people from different backgrounds. You didn't have to be Christian to live in Laurencia.

Government

Laurencia's government works off Hunter Eno's version of National Populism, in which a single party controls the government but representatives from different districts are still elected to present the will of the people to the dictating figures Hunter Eno and Brandon Coleman.

The government's two strongest people are the Chancellors who have absolute power. However, they choose to restrict themselves in order to not impose themselves on the Laurencian people.

Though there is only a single political party the people can still vote Nobles to represent their district in the Government. These Nobles serve three-year long terms and have the duty of representing the beliefs and wants of their district's people. The Chancellor's make decisions based off what the people want. If they want change, then the Chancellors will choose to bring it.

What is Enist-National Populism?

It is a form of ideology in which a single party and it's leaders dictates the nation. The ideology rejects liberalism, socialism, fascism, and secularism. The people are united despite their racial, sexual, and mental differences under the same flag as the same people. All who are legal citizens of Laurencia are brothers and sisters, as well as God's children. The ideology rejects Monarchism because the Christian Theocracy believes that there is only one true king and that is God.

Nationalism is a major part in Enist-National Populism. Those who follow the ideology love their nation and love God. For Enist-National Populists the country and it's people come first.

Is there any racism, exclusion, or bigotry involved?

Nope. Whether you're black, white, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Asian, gay, straight, transgender, etc; God loves you. He made you and to Him you are beautiful. So long as you are Laurencian, God is with and you and the Chancellors love you. That's all there is to it. Enist-National Populism unites the people despite their differences.

Speaking of which - what about freedom of speech? This is a theocracy/dictatorship so surely you're no different than Stalin!

ALL Laurencian people have the right to speak freely in public. They have the right to protest change, criticize the Chancellors and the Party, curse (with the exception of misusing God's name), and even publicly declare themselves non-Christian! Unless you have abused your free speech in heinous ways (like constantly cursing God's name or constantly bashing a specific group of people), you will not be jailed for anti-Government speech.

And if I reject God? Jesus? Then what?

Then good for you! You have every right to choose your own belief. Be warned though as the nation's laws are impacted by the Bible. The practice of Satanism, Radical Islam, or Nazism can get you exiled from the nation!

Political views

Laurencia is a conservative and religious nation that tends to be progressive when needed.

We belief in the right to own a (civilian) gun, to practice your own belief, to own and manage your own private property and business, and to choose your own sexual orientation.

We firmly oppose Marxism-Leninsm, Stalinsm, Nazism, Fascism, "Divine-Right" Monarchism, socialized healthcare, major government control, modern Social Justice, and racism.

Territory

Laurencia claims the same lands as the Second Republic and has merged the states into new districts under new names.

The Ten Commandments

The Commandments are an important part of the Christian and Jewish faiths because they set forth laws from God that setup the basics of Western civilization and basic human morality. In Laurencia the Commandments that were carried down by Moses and protected by the Israelites are just as sacred.

The Commandments and Chancellor Eno's understanding of them

The commandments of respecting God I - V (Theme: Honor)

  1. “I am the LORD thy God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage and into freedom, thou shalt not have any strange gods before Me.”
  2. “Thou shalt not misuse the name of the Lord.”
  3. “Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day.”
  4. “Honor thy father and mother.”
  5. “Thou shalt not steal.” - The commandments of respecting His creations V - X (Theme: Theft)
  6. “Thou shalt not murder your fellow man.”
  7. “Thou shalt not commit adultery.”
  8. “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.”
  9. “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife.”
  10. “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s goods.”

Respect the Creator

Commandments I - 4 are about God and how to respect him. Commandment I is about God leading the Israelites out of Egypt through Moses. It could be assumed that the commandment would mention "I am God, your God and I created the universe so listen to Me" but it doesn't. Instead God reminds the Isrealites that He freed them from slavery and oppression under a regime that praised a false god (The Pharaoh). God doesn't say to obey Him because that would be slavery. He had just released the Hebrew people from bondage so why force them into it again? It is your choice to follow these commandments. He states that you shall not worship any "strange gods". He says this meaning gods like the Pharaoh of Egypt or the Prince of Evil himself Satan. God wants you to avoid idolizing those who preach of their godliness. Do not worship that bodybuilder because he's stronger and handsome. Do not worship your king or president because they say they are heavenly. Worship the Lord, or Brahman, or Allah, or another interpretation of The Creator that wishes to enlighten and love you. Because these people are "strange gods" who do not love you, they only love themselves. Please, respect God for freeing not just Moses' people, but you from bondage. You have free will so use it.

Commandment II says to not "misuse the name of the Lord". This is something that God will not forgive you for. Out of every crime and sin imaginable (including murder), God will give no pardon to those who break this commandment. This may seem extreme but only if you misinterpret or mistranslate this. God is not damning you without remorse or rethought for saying "Goddammit" or "Oh my God", but for committing evil and heinous acts in His name. As an example: Islamic extremists tend to fight, murder, rape, and conquer all in the name of Allah, the Islamic interpretation of God. This is what the commandment means by "misuse". These extremists commit horrible acts of terror and sin in the name of God whom loves all and wants to harm none. They give God a bad name and only fuel hatred for Muslims (many of which are peaceful) and justify Atheism. For this they will not be forgiven. To misuse His name and to murder in His name is the ultimate disrespect to God and so you shall be damned.

Commandment III says to "keep holy the Sabbath day". It is said in the Old Testament that God created the earth in six days and rested on the seventh. This is why Sunday is the Sabbath as it is the seventh day of the week. On Sunday you honor God and keep the Sabbath holy by going to church and by resting. It is wrong for you and for others to force work upon you on this day because God wants His children to relax just as He did after His long and hard work. It is disrespectful to God to make yourself busy without just cause on the Sabbath.

Commandment IV says to "honor thy father and mother." God says this because it was through your parents that you were born into God's world. Without your mother and father there would be no one to carry you, to birth you, and to nurse and train you. God chose your parents to birth you and for that you should be respectful. Even if you never met your father or mother, or if they treated you harshly, or if you never speak to them; at least honor them in the sense of acknowledging that without them and their love for each other - you would not be alive. It is disrespectful to dishonor God through dishonoring your parents. Disobeying all four of these commandments is to disrespect God in all forms.

Respect the creation

Commandments V - X are about the ultimate creation by God - the human race and how to respect it. Commandment V says "thou shalt not steal". This commandment is by far the most important commandment in this section. Without it the other five would have no meaning. Commandment V is a reinforcement of Commandments VI - X so that there is no doubt. When it says to not steal it is referring to the other commandments. Do not steal the life of your fellow man, do not allow another to steal the love between you and your spouse, do not steal justice, do not steal the love from your fellow man and their spouse, and do not steal your fellow man's rightful property. In short, respect what is belonging to your fellow man.

Commandment VI says do not "murder thy fellow man." This is because to murder is to steal from your fellow man. The thing in particular that you are stealing is the gift of life from God. To kill an animal is to use them for their intended purpose. To kill an evil-doer is to uphold justice in God's name. To murder a fellow human is to disrespect their basic human right to exist.

Commandment VII says "thou shalt not commit adultery". This is because to commit adultery is to allow another person to steal the love between you and your spouse. When you cheat with another behind your spouse's back, you are letting your secret lover break and distort your sacred marital pact with your spouse. This is a disrespect to your spouse and your love. It is better to divorce than to allow such an unholy theft.

Commandment VIII says "thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor." This is because to lie and hide the truth is to steal justice. This commandment is not referring to false testimony in a court of law, if it was then it would say, "thou shalt not bear false testimony on trial". Your neighbor isn't just Norman who lives down the street, it is your fellow man who too lives on this earth. To lie is to prevent truth and inevitably justice from being dished out. You are stealing justice and disrespecting your fellow man by hiding the truth from them.

Commandment IX says "thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife". This is because it lines up with Commandment VII. To have an affair with a married person's spouse is to steal the love from between them which disrespects the spouse whom is unaware. The one whom you allow to cheat is breaking VII.

Commandment X says "thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's goods". This is because taking your fellow man's rightful property without just cause is stealing, which is forbidden in Commandment V. You are wrongfully taking what your fellow man worked for to receive. You do not deserve it. You are disrespecting the hard work and effort of your fellow man.

National anthem

Mine eyes of seen the glory of the coming of the Lord; He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored; He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword: His truth is marching on!

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah! Glory, Glory, Hallelujah! His truth is marching on!

I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps, they have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps; I have read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps: His day is marching on!

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah! Glory, Glory, Hallelujah! His truth is marching on!

I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steels: "As ye deal with my contemners, so with you My grace shall steal"; let the Hero born of woman, crush the serpent with His heal, since God is marching on!

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah! Glory, Glory, Hallelujah! His truth is marching on!

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat; He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgement-seat; oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! Be jubilant my feet! Our God is marching on!

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah! Glory, Glory, Hallelujah! His truth is marching on!

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea, with a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me, as He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free, while God is marching on!

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah! Glory, Glory, Hallelujah! His truth is marching on!
