Patrimony, Principles, and Policies of the Pan-Asiatic States
Part of the 1992 Constitution of the Pan-Asiatic States
Drafted via convention between the 1st January and 9th February 1991 CE
Ratified 17th October 1992 CE
Asia is one of the countries with the longest histories in the world. The people of all nationalities in Asia have jointly created a splendid culture and have promulgated a glorious revolutionary tradition. The Asian proletarians waged wave upon wave of heroic struggles for national independence, liberation, democracy, recognition, and freedom. Great and earth-shaking historical changes have taken place in Asia since the 20th century. Widespread death brought by American and British Imperialism in the Southeastern regions, and by the Tojo Regime in the Far East had but crippled the resolute pride of the indigenous inhabitants of this united continent. Thereupon the Asian people took state power into their own hands and became masters of the country.
After the founding of the People's Republic, the transition of Asian society from divided democratic Nation-States to a Soviet Socialist Society was established step-by-step. The socialist transformation of the private ownership of the means of production was completed, the system of exploitation of man by man eliminated and the socialist system established. The people's democratic dictatorship led by the working class and based on the alliance of workers and peasants, which is in essence the dictatorship of the proletariat, has been consolidated and developed. The Sino-Austronesian people and the New People's Army have thwarted aggression, sabotage and armed provocations by imperialists and hegemonists, safeguarded Asia's national independence and security and strengthened its national defense. Major successes have been achieved in economic development. An independent and fairly comprehensive socialist system of industry has in the main been established. There has been a marked increase in agricultural production. Significant progress has been made in educational, scientific, cultural and other undertakings, and socialist ideological education has yielded noteworthy results. The living standards of the people have improved considerably. Both the victory of Asia's new-democratic revolution and the successes of its socialist cause have been achieved by the proletarians of all nationalities under the leadership of the Asian Communist Party, the guidance of Marxism-Leninism and Mao Zedong Thought, by upholding truth, correcting errors and overcoming numerous reactionary adversaries, difficulties and hardships.
Therefore, we, the sovereign, and newly united Asian people, imploring the aid of our Forefathers, in order to build a just and humane society, and establish a Government that shall promote the will of the people, preserve the Dictatorship of the Proletarian, conserve and develop our patrimony, and secure to ourselves and our posterity, the blessings of Independence, Socialism and Democracy under the rule of law and a regime of truth, justice, freedom, love, equality, and everlasting glory, do ordain and promulgate this Constitution- which will embody the ideals and aspirations of every Asian proletarian under the almighty people's banner.
