Hello and welcome to the GODR website's Citizenship page! Here, you will find all information regarding what citizenship in the GODR is, how citizenship can be obtained, and the resources necessary to look further into the process. Below is a handy Table of Contents tool to help successfully navigate the Citizenship page.
What is GODR Citizenship?
Citizenship in the Grand Order of DR is a privilege earned by those who can prove their dedication to the nation and its people. Being a citizen of the Grand Order of DR grants the holder rights and privileges that outsiders to the GODR do not have, such as voting, being a landowner, starting a business, running and holding public office, and more. There are two forms of GODR citizenship that may be held by individuals in the GODR. The first and top form of citizenship one can hold in the GODR is officially known as "Full Citizenship", and grants the holder all rights and privileges the GODR has to offer. The second form of citizenship one can hold in the GODR is known as "Secondary Citizenship", which offers fewer rights and privileges within the GODR, but with the benefit of fewer responsibilities.
Full Citizenship in the GODR is the premier citizenship title someone can hold. As a Full Citizen of the GODR, an individual may own land in any GODR territory or province, vote in local elections, run for and hold public office, freely travel to and from any GODR territory or province, live within GODR borders, and do anything a Secondary Citizen can do (Start a business, speak freely, create and/or sign petitions, hold public gatherings, become a member of a GODR political party of choice). Once the GODR Constitution is defined and completed, Full Citizens will be granted all rights guaranteed to them by said Constitution. To prevent foreign micronational leaders from meddling in, interfering in, or interrupting GODR Government affairs, leaders of other micronations may NOT be allowed to obtain GODR Full Citizen status.
How Do I Achieve Full Citizenship?
To receive Full Citizenship and all of its benefits, an individual must successfully complete the following: submit a citizenship application and apply for Full Citizenship, pass a short and unintrusive background check, achieve a score of 80% or higher on the GODR citizenship test, and complete an interview with a GODR representative. Additionally, to qualify for Full Citizenship, the applicant MUST live within or in close proximity to a GODR territory or province and demonstrate good intentions and dedication for joining the GODR. However, this process can be bypassed through two other methods. The first method to secure Full Citizenship by bypassing the citizenship application process is to be acquainted with the Supreme Overlord of the GODR. The Supreme Overlord can gift Full Citizenship to anyone he so chooses, regardless of their application or approval status. The second method to secure Full Citizenship by bypassing the citizenship application process is to submit a valid and legitimate micronational land claim to the GODR as a new territory under full control of the GODR. All subjects living in this valid micronational land claim will be granted immediate Full Citizenship to the GODR, unless said subjects wish to decline.
Secondary Citizenship in the GODR is currently the lowest level of citizenship the GODR has to offer, however, it is also the easiest form of citizenship for an individual to secure. As a Secondary Citizen of the GODR, an individual may start a business in the GODR, speak freely, create and/or sign petitions, hold public gatherings, and become a member of a GODR political party of their own choice. Once the GODR Constitution is defined and completed, Secondary Citizens will be granted all rights guaranteed to them by said Constitution. Secondary Citizenship is NOT a discriminatory lower social class, and is NOT given to individuals for the purpose of discriminating against them. Individuals who hold Secondary Citizenship will NEVER be discriminated against on the basis of gender, race, wealth, religion, politics, or identity. Secondary Citizenship may be upgraded to Full Citizenship by the Supreme Overlord at any time or by applying for Full Citizenship later.
How Do I Achieve Secondary Citizenship?
To receive Secondary Citizenship and all of its benefits, an individual must successfully complete the following: submit a citizenship application and apply for Secondary Citizenship, achieve a score of 70% or higher on the GODR citizenship test, and answer questions for a GODR representative via email. Additionally, to qualify for Secondary Citizenship, an individual must simply show good intentions for joining the GODR. The Supreme Overlord may grant anyone with GODR Secondary Citizenship for any reason at anytime, bypassing the entire application process.

Applying for Citizenship
To apply for either Full Citizenship and Secondary Citizenship, an applicant will need to complete the same basic application form. However, only one citizenship status can be applied for per application form. The applicant must select which type of citizenship they are applying for when prompted to by the form. The citizenship application form for the GODR can be found in the link below.
A 20-question test is required to be completed by all applicants applying for citizenship. The test will cover topics all citizens, future or present, should know about the GODR. All materials needed to pass the test are publicly available and can be found online via the GODR's websites and social media pages. Applicants applying for Secondary Citizenship must pass the test with a score of 14/20 (70%) or higher. Applicants applying for Full Citizenship must pass the test with a score of 16/20 (80%) or higher. A successfully passed citizenship test does NOT guarantee that the applicant will be granted GODR citizenship.
The GODR Citizenship Test will cover various GODR-based topics regarding GODR history, politics, government structure, holidays, and culture. All resources needed to successfully pass the test can be found on the official GODR website or social media pages.
Test Time Restrictions
The GODR Citizenship Test MUST be finished and submitted within two hours of a GODR representative assigning the test to the applicant. Arrangements may be made with the GODR representative to start the test at a later date when the applicant is next available to take the test. If the test is not submitted within two hours of assignment, the test is automatically failed, and the applicant must reapply for citizenship.
How to Take the Test
In order to attempt to take the GODR Citizenship Test, an applicant must first submit a GODR Citizenship Application Form. After the application is approved by a GODR representative, the representative will contact the applicant regarding the citizenship application process and will email the test to the applicant when the applicant is ready. Once the test is emailed to the applicant by the representative, the applicant has two hours to complete and submit the test.
