Noon Constitution

Following the signing of the Provisional Constitution in 1938, crime rates went down, immigration and emigration rates came up, and everything seemed perfect. Then in 1940, President Thomas Williams joined WWII, and after the war in 1969, after Thomas Williams died, Coda Tal Jr. added Article IV in place of Equality. In 1994, Barry Maxman completely redid the Constitution, and made 21 Articles. In 2005, Ben Franklin added Articles XXII and XXIII, and Section III and it has not been changed since.
