Reich Constitution of the Teutonic Reich

Die Reichsverfassung des Deutschen Reichs







The German people, mindful of their responsibilities to God and man, having solemnly resolved to constitute Germany into an independent, united state under the guiding principles of fascism and desiring to secure to all its citizens justice, social and economic; security of mind, body and community; equality of status and opportunity; and to promote among them the fraternity and brotherhood of German kindred; assuring the dignity of the individual and the integrity and unity of the state; hereby adopt this national constitution. Germans in the states of Alsace-Lorraine, Anhalt, Baden, Bavaria, Bohemia, Bremen, Brunswick, Carinthia, Estonia, Hamburg, Hesse, Lübeck, Krakow, Latvia, Lippe, Lithuania, Lower Danube, Lublin, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Oldenburg, Prussia, Radom, Rhineland-Palatinate, Moravia, Saarland, Salzburg, Saxony, Schaumburg-Lippe, Slovakia, Styria, Sudetenland, Thuringia, Tyrol, Upper Danube, Vienna, Vorarlberg, Warsaw and Württemberg have achieved the unity and freedom of the Teutonic Reich in free self-determination. This constitution thus applies to the entire German and Teutonic peoples.



Article 1

  1. Germany shall be a sovereign, unitary, Fascist state known as the Teutonic Reich of the German Nation. The capital of the Teutonic Reich is Germania. The state flag of the Teutonic Reich consists of the colors black-red-golden and the yellow-black cross imposed on the flag. The state coat of arms consists of the black Imperial eagle carrying the Iron Cross in a wreath of oak leaves.

Article 2

  1. All political power in the Teutonic Reich is exercised by the people's community. Humans are located in the center of all efforts of the Fascist society and its state. The further increase of the material and cultural life level of the people on the basis of a high rate of development of fascist and corporate production, the increase in scientific-technological progress and the growth of national productivity is the crucial task of the developed Fascist society.
  2. The exploitation of humans by humans is to be eliminated. What the people's hands create, is the property of the people. The principle of class collaboration and corporatism forms the basis of social harmony and unity within the state.

Article 3

  1. The National German People's Fascist and Justice Party is the sole legitimate political expression and alliance of the German people. It is the national movement of the people's community that combines the parties and mass organizations of all social classes of the people to promote the development of the Fascist society.
  2. The Reich Chancellor and Führer is the Head of Government and leader of the National German People's Fascist and Justice Party as well as the embodiment of the people's will. He shall endeavour to promote the spiritual, ideological, socio-economic and cultural well-being of the German people and shall be vested with full legislative and executive powers as prescribed in Articles 18 and 29.
  3. A Bill for making an amendment to this Part shall not be passed by Parliament unless it has been supported, at a national referendum, by not less than two-thirds of the total number of votes cast by the electors registered under the Parliamentary Elections Act.

Article 4

  1. All state authority is derived from the people under the guidance of the National German People's Fascist and Justice Party. It is exercised by the people through elections and other votes and through specific legislative, executive and judicial bodies.
  2. The legislature shall be bound by the constitutional order, the executive and the judiciary by law and justice and the Principle of Leadership.
  3. This Constitution is the supreme law of the Teutonic Reich of the German Nation and any law enacted by the Legislature after the commencement of this Constitution which is inconsistent with this Constitution shall, to the extent of the inconsistency, be void.
  4. A Bill seeking to amend any provision in this Constitution shall not be passed by Parliament unless it has been supported on Second and Third Readings by the votes of not less than two-thirds of the total number of the elected Members of Parliament
  5. All Germans shall have the right to resist any person seeking to abolish this constitutional order, if no other remedy is available.

Article 5

  1. Mindful also of its responsibility toward future generations, the state shall protect the natural foundations of life and animals by legislation and, in accordance with law and justice, by executive and judicial action, all within the framework of the constitutional order.

This nation is now IC-ly known as the Teutonic Reich.

  1. Without in any way derogating from the force and effect of Article 6, nothing in that Article shall be construed as precluding the Teutonic Reich or any association, body or organisation therein from —
  2. participating or co-operating in, or contributing towards, any scheme, venture, project, enterprise or undertaking of whatsoever nature, in conjunction or in concert with any other sovereign state or with any Federation, Confederation, country or countries or any association, body or organisation therein, where such scheme, venture, project, enterprise or undertaking confers, has the effect of conferring or is intended to confer, on the Teutonic Reich or any association, body or organisation therein, any economic, financial, industrial, social, cultural, educational or other benefit of any kind or is, or appears to be, advantageous in any way to the Teutonic Reich or any association, body or organisation therein;
