The Evermore Constitution is a document written largely by Marina Yao, in consort with Ammon Bandele, the Mayor of Astrid. The document builds upon a previously drafted constitution that was being written by Mayor Bandele alongside several other Evermore Mayors. The goal of the document is to craft a government that can unify the disparate tribes and cities present in Evermore. The Evermore Constitution uses Princess Mallory Evermore as a prominent national symbol in an attempt to provide cohesion and national unity to a Unified Evermore Government.

The document is broken up into six sections: a Preamble and five Articles. The Preamble establishes the reasons for Union, and the justification of a Nationalized Government. Article 1 establishes a tricameral legislature. Article 2 establishes a Supreme Court. Article 3 details the practices for impeaching government officials. Article 4 establishes two National Languages. Article 5 acts as a declaration of rights.
