"All constitutions seek to articulate, with differing degrees of intensity and detail, the shared aspirations of a nation; the values which bind its people; and which discipline its government and its national institutions; the basic premises upon which judicial, legislative and executive power is to be wielded; the constitutional limits and the conditions upon which that power is to be exercised; and the moral and ethical direction which that nation has identified for its future." Kate O'Regan, Judge of the Constitutional Court, South Africa

This is a constitution for the digital age - a set of principles which defines this new nation, but not set in stone. 'Writing the constitution' involved ranking the propositions, as well as submitting them, by liking or disliking. You can browse the Nowheriesland constitution by date, popularity or category below. Ranking ceased at midnight on Sunday 9th September.
