Constancian nationality law is the law of the Imperial State of Constancia that governs citizenship and other categories of nationality. More importantly, it governs the important distinction on who may be granted a passport, as well as who is entitled to vote and be voted for into office.

The history of Constancian nationality law is also discussed here.

Early Constancian nationality law

Article 4 (Freedom of the Citizens) of the Constitutional Settlement Act 1463 was one of the earliest legislation to specify the rights and liberties of a Constancian subject, although the formal definition of the Constancian subject was not enshrined into law until The Citizenship Act 1632, Article 1, Section B of which provided that, "All those born in the Kingdom of Constancia shall receive citizenship without application" and that, "Citizenship can be requested by a person who has not committed crimes and being persecuted for them and is not on the date of the request being submitted a citizen of the Kingdom of Constancia or of an enemy of the Kingdom," under Article 2, Section A thereof. Furthermore, that same law provided that, "Citizenship can be withdrawn from the person holding said citizenship following a resultion of the Synklētos and approval from the Mesazōn." [sic].

The Borders Act 1632 prohibited the unrestricted entry of people into the Kingdom, with Article 2, Section C providing that, "No person, except Constancian citizens, shall be allowed to enter the Kingdom without obtaining permission from the Borders Control Agency or without receiving invitation by a member of the Constancian Royal Family."

The Magna Carta of 1667

Chapter II of the Magna Carta specified the rights and duties of subjects, with Article 18 specifying that, "The conditions necessary for being a Constancian subject shall be determined by law."

The Treaty of Perpetual Friendship and Free Association

Article 1 of The Treaty of Perpetual Friendship and Free Association between the Imperial State of Constancia and the Khanate of Raspur, specified that, "Citizens and denizens of the territory of either Party shall in the other enjoy the same benefits and obligations afforded citizens of the same rank in the Other." To this end, it was officially interpreted that only those individuals born on or after 12.VI.1668 would be considered Constancian subjects with full voting and other civil rights.
