On Aggregation and Secession

Only a province can secede or aggregate.

Secession is effected with 75% of eligible voters in a province affirming, provided a portion of the boundary of the province borders on a sovereign nation other than that from which the province is voting to secede, or borders on a body of water that such a sovereign nation borders, or borders on an ocean.   The constitution that goes into force in the event of an affirmative vote for secession, must be published at least one week but at most one month prior to the opening of voting (though it can, of course, have also been published at an earlier time).

Aggregation is effected with 75% of eligible voters in a province affirming, and 75% of eligible voters affirming in the nation with which the province will aggregate.   Voting in the province and the nation must be simultaneous (beginning and ending within an hour of each other).   The constitution that goes into force in the event of an affirmative vote for aggregation, must be published at least one week but at most one month prior to the opening of voting, and must be consistent with the constitution of the nation with which the province will aggregate.   In particular, it must include the constitution of that nation in its unaltered entirety.
