International recognition of Personal States

One of the generally recognized principles of modern international law is the right of nations to self-determination.

In accordance with the provisions of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, all peoples have the right to self-determination. By virtue of this right, they freely establish their political status and freely ensure their economic, social and cultural development, and all states participating in this Pact must, in accordance with the provisions of the UN Charter, promote the exercise of the right to self-determination and respect this right.

In accordance with the Declaration on the Principles of International Law of October 24, 1970, by virtue of the principle of equality and self-determination of peoples enshrined in the UN Charter, all peoples have the right to freely determine, without outside interference, their political status and to pursue their economic, social and cultural development, and each state is obliged to respect this right in accordance with the provisions of the Charter, and the methods of exercising the right to self-determination can be the creation of a sovereign and independent state, free accession to or association with an independent state, or the establishment of any other political status.

We will not be able to give at least some serious reason to refute the possibility of the existence of a people in a minimum number of 1 person, as well as reasons for not recognizing the declaration of the existence of such a people. Thus, the existence of the institution of a Personal State and the proclamation of Personal States are seen to be consistent with the principles of international law.

It also follows from the above that non-recognition by any of the existing states of the existence of another state, incl. Personal State does not deny the fact of its political existence.

Progress in the issue of international recognition of Personal States could be ensured by precedents, widespread cases of proclamation of individual states, popularization of the institution of a Personal State, as well as the position of leading world powers and prominent international figures and iconic persons.

One of the additional weighty instruments of recognition of Personal States would be mutual recognition of each other by Personal States. The international unification of Personal States into an Association or a League of Personal States would provide such recognition (by joining a league, a Personal State receives recognition from all members of the league and, in turn, recognizes all personal member states and those who will become its members in the future). The emergence of an impressive number of Personal States and their mutual recognition would be a weighty argument in favor of developing the practice of recognizing Personal States as Service States.

Billion states?

Perhaps, the assumption of the existence of a billion states on the planet will be somewhat unaccustomed to understanding. In fact, there is nothing supernatural about it. We are entering an era when a person, for example, has access to an unlimited number of currencies, dozens and hundreds of which appear daily.

Office work and accounting in the migration authorities of service states in connection with the need to interact with a large number of Personal States would not be difficult, given the possibilities of modern information technologies and the uniformity of procedures.

In practice, the "meeting" of the service state and the Personal State could look like this. The service state approves a model international (public) contract with individual states. Crossing the border of a service state for the first time, a citizen (he is also the head) of a Personal State would have to sign a document on accession to this standard (public) agreement. Formally, at the same time, at this moment, the service state would recognize a Personal State. After that, a citizen of a Personal State would receive a mark in his passport - an imprint of the stamp of the border service of the service state indicating the date of entry, contract number, and length of stay. And these are all the necessary procedures.
