Politics & GovernmentEdit
The vice presidents and District Governors will be elected (candidates will be nominated by the president). The president will serve in office all his life. All department heads will be appointed by the president.
The first draft of the Republic's constitution has been completed. Using the constitution of the U.S. state of Alaska as its basis, it also includes several provisions based on the United States federal constitution as well. Key provisions include:
- Equal rights are guaranteed without regard to race, creed, sex, color, nationality, or disability.
- An explicitly-worded section that guarantees freedom of religion and declares a separation of church and state.
- Freedom of speech and press are guaranteed.
- The Right to bear arms is guaranteed.

The President of Markland declared a small part of Dyess AFB, TX as his own sovereign nation. This was the President's first land claims. This attempt in 2008 ultimately failed when his friend claimed more than half the land. They then went too war and this ended both micronations.
In April of 2009 the President claimed portions of Kennewick, WA as his own sovereign nation called the Ingalls Empire. This attempt, like the one in 2008 also failed, only this time it was due to a lack of knowledge about establishing a micronation.
On 1 January 2010 President Mark Ingalls declared the Republic of Markland as its own sovereign nation.
On 4 January 2010 President Mark Ingalls created a Bureau of Defense (see Federal Act 1B) because he was worried that the Republic would be called in to help defend their 2 allies that are members of the GAMA during the ASEA Claiming Conflict. This conflict, however, was resolved the following day without a declaration of war.
