Return to Government Information
The Grand Duchy of Danduros is a sovereign state and entitled to all rights of a sovereign State, including participation in international organizations and entering into diplomatic relations with other sovereign states.
Our claim to sovereignty is in accordance with the Montevideo Convention on Rights and Duties of States of 1933, which sets forth the following requirements for a state:
- A permanent population
- A defined territory
- A government
- The capacity to enter into relation with other states
All of the above criteria are met as we have a permanent population, a sovereign government, and have the ability to enter into diplomatic relations with other sovereign states.
It should also be noted that Article 3 of the Montevideo Convention states that "The political existence of the State is independent of recognition by the other states."
