Department of Vital Records
Welcome to the Department of Vital Records. This department is a section under the Office of State Affairs. We keep track and document all vital records in the government. Our job is critical to the operation of the Royal Government. On this page you will find some documents posted that the Royal Government has designated that the public should have access to view at anytime.
If you are in need of a document, or a certified copy of a document, from the government then please send us your request using the contact us tab at the top of the page. In the subject line put "Document Request". If you need your personnel records for military, police, or emergency service, please use the appropriate personnel section of your service first. They will not have as many documents on file as we will and the request will not take as long.

The Kingdom of Fristehen Official Statement on Sovereignty
From the Desk of the Office of The King
Official Statement S07-1001
I have received questions about the seriousness of our nation. I assure you we are not a role playing game, or exist only as a virtual cybernation, or a political simulation. I hope the following statement answers any questions about our legitimacy. If any questions remain then please contact our government using our website.
I being King due state and proclaim the following to wit as,
The Kingdom of Fristehen is a real sovereign nation, even if the governments we have declared sovereignty from do not recognize us. We declare this from the Declarative Theory of Statehood, which defines a state as a person of international law that meets certain structural criteria.
These criteria are set out in Article 1 of the Montevideo Convention of 1933:
The state as a person of international law should possess the following qualifications: (a) a permanent population; (b) a defined territory; (c) government; and (d) capacity to enter into relations with other states.
Article 3 of the Convention declares that statehood is independent of recognition by other states ( and therefore in conflict with the more recent Consultative Theory in which other states must recognize the new nation in order for it to become independent).
The European Community Opinions of the Badinter Arbitration Committee expresses a similar opinion about “the conditions on which an entity constitutes a state’. The Committee found that a state was defined by having a territory, a population, and a political authority. The committee also found that the existence and disappearance of states was a question of fact, while the recognition by other states was purely declaratory.
So based on the above points, we are an independent nation with (a) citizens that live permanently in our, (b) defined territory, (c) with a government with a constitution and (d) a ministry of foreign affairs that is capable and is authorized by our constitution to enter into relations with other states.
The Royal Government of
The Kingdom of Fristehen
