- "I am responsible for myself and my actions; I shall conduct myself honorably, and live a clean and frugal life. I have responsibilities to my fellow citizens. I shall be loyal to them, and humble, because we are elements of a greater whole, and without them I am nothing, I have responsibilities to our society; I shall understand and respect my place in it, defend it, and work to make it prosperous, so that I may receive society's protection, and that we may hand on safety and prosperity to future generations."
- — The Octus Canon, founding principles of the COG, as handed down by the Allfathers, and recited by every citizen.
The Octus Canon was the founding document of the Coalition of Ordered Governments. Like a constitution, it formally established the COG as a supranational governing entity, and set down the code of laws which would be followed by the citizens of all member states. It was signed and ratified by the Allfathers, the founders of the COG and leaders of its constituent nations.
