Many nations require its people, civil servents, soldiers and so forth to take an oath symbolic of their loyalty to the nation and government. What are yours?

Ours is:
"I, (Insert full name), do swear that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to the party and people of Crysuko, and all her laws and leaders. I stand with my comrades united for the socialist cause."

This holds true from politicians to soldiers, all are required to take this oath ceremonially where their peers can bear witness.

The pledge of allegiance in a Presidential inauguration is as follows, with other people required to take oaths (Politicians, judges, military officers, etc.) having a very similar pledge to recite:

"I, [Name] swear my allegiance to the Radiatian people and the Radiatian constitution. I swear I will do all in my power to defend the constitution, to defend and protect our democracy and to defend, promote and protect our national values of individualism and efficiency during my time in office as President of the Radiatian Federation."

Let no man write my epitaph; for as no man who knows my motives dare now vindicate them, let not prejudice or ignorance, asperse them. Let them and me rest in obscurity and peace, and my tomb remain uninscribed, and my memory in oblivion, until other times and other men can do justice to my character. When my country takes her place among the nations of the earth, then and not till then, let my epitaph be written. I have done

“I pledge allegiance to the Sultanate of Sharifistan under [insert deity here, typically Allah] and under [the same] I pledge allegiance to it’s Sultan and all his successors and heirs.”

This oath is required for immigrants to gain citizenship(unless they are lex sanguine immigrants),
for personnel of the armed forces, for police officers, judges and assorted public officials.

Eigenland is a nation only in the loosest sense of the word, a union of sovereign, rational beings whose only "community" is other sovereign, rational beings with whom they wish to associate out of practical, egoistic desires. As such, any allegiance or pledge thereof is seen as an absurd construct to be discarded both as a concept and what it represents.

There is no official Pledge of Allegiance for the public. (We also don't sing the National Anthem at sporting events!) Military members, elected officials, police officers, and most other public servants must take an oath of office. The oaths of office differ but are usually something like:

Civilian version:
"I, <Firstname Patronymic>, solemnly swear to respect and uphold the Constitution of the Republic, to faithfully and excellently carry out the duties of my office, and to honor the trust placed in me by acting virtuously at all times."

Military version:
"I, <FIrstname Patronymic>, solemnly swear to uphold and defend the Constitution of Lancov, to protect her people and their rights, to obey all lawful orders of the President, General Staff, and the officers appointed above me, and to be just to those appointed beneath me. On pain of shame and dishonor, I shall act virtuously at all times."

Optionally, one may add the traditional "So help me, God" at the end. Conversely, adding "Long Live the Tsar" at the end will immediately disqualify the person from the office they're being sworn in to.

There exists no formal pledge of allegiance in Gandoor, at least for the average citizen, with the closest equivalents being the oath of office used by Members of the Forum and the Prime Minister and the Gandoorese Oath of Citizenship, which is the last formal step to acquiring Gandoorese citizenship for immigrants.

Oath of office:
'I, <full name>, solemnly affirm that I will utilize my position as a Member of the Forum/the Prime Minister of the Democratic Republic of Gandoor in accordance with Constitution and laws of the Democratic Republic, will act accordingly in regards to the duties and expectations of my office, and will serve as a model for all Gandoorese.'

Gandoorese Oath of Citizenship:
'I, <full name>, solemnly affirm my loyalty to the Democratic Republic of Gandoor. I pledge to respect the rights and liberties granted to myself and others under the Constitution of the Democratic Republic and to obey and uphold the laws of the Democratic Republic.'

To God, to the King,
And to the Country represented by the Flag of New Luzon
With honor, justice and freedom;
Put in motion by one Nation
For God,

And for the Country.


The text of the Oath remains the same regardless of the oath-taker's personal beliefs (or the lack of one); the English version is used solely in naturalization ceremonies.

The Koranic oath of alleigiance is recited by public employees, such as schoolteachers, doctors, and police officers, and public servants, such as politicians and civil servants, upon taking office in their respective jobs. It must be recited in Arabic.

English translation:
" I, [full name], swear by almighty Allah I am faithful to him, the Koran and to the Koranic nation and constitution. I swear that there is no God but Allah and that Prophet Muhammad - peace be upon him - is his prophet and messenger. I swear to uphold these prinicples and promises throughout the execution of my job and service to the Republic and to Allah almighty."

All subjects are required to make an oath of allegiance when they turn of age, or prior. This is normally done immediately prior to the conferral of the sacrament of confirmation. The form of the oath is :

I, A. B., do swear by Almighty God that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance unto our Sovereign Lord King Alexander the Second, his heirs and successors, according to law.
So help me God.

An oath of homage which taken by all peers at a coronation or upon commendation is :

I, A. B., X of Y, do become your liege man of life and limb and of earthly worship, and true faith and troth I will bear unto you, to live and die against all manner of folks. So help me God.

The Pledge


''The pledge of allegiance and anthem is compulsory not only in the schools, but various other places and situations as well. The anthem and pledge of SC as a whole comes first, but the regional anthems and pledges - only as second, in order to show, that Commonwealth itself is in the 1st place. However, the pledge and anthem of SC can be sang in any language if the students or teacher wishes so, and/or they don't speak English well. The pledge was adapted along with the newly drafted ''constitution'' in 2050. Pledge's text also puts emphasis on the decentralized and diverse nature of the Commonwealth - that there are many gods, republics, flags, and values to conserve. In the end, however, it all boils down to world unity. The pledge is:''

''I, the citizen of Silver Commonwealth, pledge allegiance to my Flag, my Republic, and my God, whoever it may be. I am a proud citizen, a prouder worker, and a patriot of my homeland, whoever it may be. I am a part of the collective, and shall proudly carry my country in the future, conserving whatever traditions my homeland holds dear.''

The pledge of allegiance when obtaining citizenship (after 7 years of residentship) and civilians is as follows:

I, (Insert full name, e.g. Chris Alex Smith), solemnly pledge allegiance to (Religious: God Almighty/irreligious: all who witnesses), the people, the constitution and the flag of the Federative Republic of Nacrad, and the Union of Christian Nations, that I shall offer the best of my ability to love, to defend, and to improve the Nation and the Union; and to love (Religious: my Lord Above/irreligious: my neighbours) and my fellow citizens as my own. May help descend upon me, and faith be within me to serve the Nation, the Union, the People (religious: and my Lord) under one banner.

The pledge upon joining the armed forces is as follows:

I, (Insert full name), solemnly pledge allegiance to (Religious: God Almighty/irreligious: my fellow comrades), the constitution, the People and the Flag of the Federative Republic of Nacrad, the Union of Christian Nations, and the Armed Forces of the Federative Republic of Nacrad, that I shall offer my life and my blood in the defence of the People, the Nation, (religious: the Lord Almighty) and whomsoever it may be, that I shall follow the orders of (religious: Lord Almighty), the Nation, the People and the Union to the best of my ability, and shall proudly carry the Nation towards (religious Lord's) glory and victory. (Religious: May Lord forgive my sins of killing, and assist/Irreligious: May my comrades and the People assist) me in the completion of this holy duty.

The Socialist Federation of Ergoslatic requires all of its people to recite its pledge of allegiance.

English translation: "I, the proletariat of the Socialist Federation of Ergoslatic, shall relinquish private property for the benefit of the collective, and forever swear my life and my time in aiding the revolution and promoting the socialist cause, so that we can overthrow the greedy capitalist bourgeoisie and the reactionary theocratic monarchy, and free the proletariat across the world."

This is part of the citizenship test for immigrants, and it's recited in all schools, military bases, and government offices every morning. Those who don't chant this (or chant one of an enemy nation instead) tend to be incarcerated or executed.

For government ministers, the oath of office is in a question/answer format. Upon the coronation of a new Prince or Princess, they must take the oath again or resign.

Q: "Do you swear by your honor, to be a loyal servant of (Prince / Princess) ________ of Alzatia, and to faithfully perform the duties of your office?"

A: "Yes I do. Long live the (Prince / Princess)!"


For civil servants, the oath is printed on a sign or poster. Instead of swearing the oath verbally, the person signs his/her name in a book. Upon the coronation of a new Prince or Princess, the book is replaced with a blank one and they must sign it again.

"I swear by my honor, to be a loyal servant of (Prince / Princess) ________ of Alzatia, and to faithfully perform the duties of my office. Long live the (Prince / Princess)!"

None except the usual oath on assuming state office or entering the Armed Forces.

The latter:

"I, [insert name], do swear by [deity of choice] to obey the orders of his Imperial Majesty [reigning Sultan and Caliphe] and the officers placed above me carrying his will for the Empire and the House of Hamid, to defend the Empire and its people bravely unto death. I am aware that breaking this oath carries severe penalty under law and order of the Empire and chose to take it under my own free will on this day the [date]. Padişahım çok yaşa! Devletinle bin yaşa!"


public office:

"I, [insert name], do swear by [deity of choice] to obey the orders of his Imperial Majesty [reigning Sultan and Caliphe] and the officers placed above me carrying his will for the Empire and the House of Hamid. To follow and uphold the law and order of the Empire and to dutifully fulfill my office. I am aware that breaking this oath carries severe penalty under law and order of the Empire and chose to take it under my own free will on this day the [date]. Padişahım çok yaşa! Devletinle bin yaşa!"[/i]

Usually however in schools the day starts and ends with standing up, saluting a portrait of the Sultan (which hangs over every blackboard and entrance) and a loud "Padişahım çok yaşa!".

Colloquial Popular:
Aku bersumpah
atas kehormatanku
akan kesetiaanku
kepada negaraku
dan kepada benderaku.
Berdjajalah
satu daulat,
satu rakjat.
Dan terkutuklah
dia jang berkhianat
pada Tanah Airnja.
Hidup Republik!
Hore! (Atau suatu ekspresi jang sebanding dengannja)

Low Popular:
I swear
on my honour
for my allegiance
to my state
and to my flag.
Glory be granted
upon the one nation,
and upon the one people.
And damnation beeth upon them
Those who betray
their own homeland.
Long live the Republic!
Ura! (Or any other expression equals to it)

All citizens must recite the pledge during any formal events and/or after the national anthem is played. It must also be recited in schools and public offices. When reciting the pledge, the attendants are not required to do any salute. Non-citizen attendants are required to stand up during the recitation. However, any active serving members of the military are required to salute to the flag (if present) without saying anything (as they have their own pledge, the Soldier's Oath). There also exists a version in both High and Middle Popular, however, due to obscurity and the tendency for an aura of eliteness of both versions, the pledge was never done in both languages ever again. Public offices use this pledge with one added quirk. The reciter must hold their Holy Book with their right hand on the table, and afterward, said person kisses both the national flag and the popular flag. If the person is not a religious one, they hold their constitution (one is assigned to every citizen). Generally, if there's an indoor event and there are pictures of the Prime President, the Vice Prime President, and the National Emblem, this pledge will be done no matter what the event is.
