The 31st state:
On 3 June 2004 a new state officially came into existence. This 31st state is the state of Sargaso, consisting of islands off the east coast, formerly belonging to Bunamota and Dhentamina. These island populations are ethnically mixed, but they feel a great love for and pride in their island homes. They felt removed from their inland capitals, not to mention ignored by the dominant mainland population.
The constitution allows alienated populations to initiate petitions for secession and reorganization. As a result of a petition drive in 2002, the people of the islands participated in a referendum on 12 November 2003 in which they voted to establish the new state.
New States in the Future?
The state of Cuecha is too big, according to many of its residents. Both in terms of population and area, Cuecha is one of larger states. The state government seems far removed from the average citizen. There is no ethnic cleavage that is prompting this discussion of "state division," but only irritation with the size of state government, and a hope that multiple states will put gov a little closer to the people. While polls show that 60 to 65% of Cuecha voters favor "state partition," the debate is badly hampered by disputes over whether to split Cuecha into two, three or four states, and where to draw the new lines.
