Mercia, encompassing the Midlands of England, shall secure a free and prosperous future for its people only through independence. A sovereign
Mercian state shall provide its citizens with full healthcare, welfare
provision and education at all levels. Led by an all-female, Pagan order of priestesses, public worship of the ancient gods and goddesses shall be reinstated as the Mercian national
religion, while freedom of speech, expression and belief shall be guaranteed for all. The Mercian lands and properties of the state-owned Church of England shall be returned to the community, and its hierarchy of bishops, priests and vicars disbanded.
