National Anthem
[url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ode_to_Newfoundland"]ODE TO NEWFOUNDLAND:[/url]

When Sunrays crown thy pine clad hills
And Summer spreads her hand
When silvern voices tune thy rills
We love thee smiling land
We love thee, we love thee
We love thee, smiling land.

When spreads thy cloak of shimm'ring white
At Winter's stern command
Thro' shortened day and starlit night
We love thee, frozen land
We love thee, we love thee
We love thee, frozen land.

When blinding storm gusts fret thy shore
And wild waves lash thy strand
Thro' spindrift swirl and tempest roar
We love thee, wind-swept land
We love thee, we love thee
We love thee, wind-swept land.

As loved our fathers, so we love
Where once they stood we stand
Their prayer we raise to heav'n above
God guard thee, Newfoundland
God guard thee, God guard thee
God guard thee, Newfoundland.

Domestic Policy:
Newfoundland&Labrador reserves the right to protect, promote, and further its national interests at the regional and international level.

Foreign policy:
Newfoundland&Labrador currently follows a semi-isolation policy.

Security policy:
Newfoundland&Labrador reserves the right to search any civilian and military vessels passing through or into and within its territorial waters and EEZ, any vehicles or other modes of land transportation passing through and within its land territories and protected areas, and any aircraft passing through and within its airspace for any reason at any time, especially when there are reasonable concern regarding suspicious or illegal activities taking place within Newfoundland&Labrador and its jurisdictions. Any illegal or otherwise intentionally-harmful cargo found through such security search procedures will be seized.

Border policy:
All persons entering Newfoundland&Labrador must present a valid Passport or proper equivalent documentation to customs officials at border and coastal checkpoints. There, they will be granted a visa (prices very based on the host country, tho current costs is no more than $180 NFD) that will last for no more than 90 days. After 90 days, the persons may choose to renew their visas. If they choose not to renew their visas, they must leave or attempt to before the 90 days.
Intentional failure to leave the country or entering illegally is a federal offense, and violators will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action.

Maritime policy:
Foreign civilian and commerce vessels require a specialized permit from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to pass through Newfoundland&Labrador territorial waters, which extends to twelve nautical miles from the coast (unless stated otherwise, or conflicts with that of other countries, no permit is required for civilian and commerce passage through the EEZ, which extends to two hundred nautical miles from the coast, unless conflicted with other nations). A permit is required from the Department of Land and Resource Management for fishing and mining rights within the EEZ. Non-allied foreign military vessels are required to receive express permission from the War Ministry to cross Newfoundland&Labrador waters and EEZ through designated paths (the same goes for territorial and protected lands and airspace). They are required to petition the War Ministry for a special permit for passage and docking purposes, and provide a timetable; any dockings are to be for refueling and maintenance purposes. Allied military vessels are exempt from the permit requirements, though they are required to inform the War Ministry beforehand to cross Newfoundland&Labrador territory, airspace, and waters, and to dock in Newfoundland&Labrador ports. This is to avoid misunderstandings and potential conflict.

EEZ policy:
The official boundaries of the EEZ encompasses all waters adjacent to Newfoundland proper, and the (mainland) of Labrador, extending 200nm from the Newfoundland&Labrador coast or where they interact with another EEZ. The Newfoundland&Labrador EEZ encompasses part of the Arctic Ocean, the Labrador Sea, and part of the Golf of St. Lawrence.


Aerial policy:
Newfoundland&Labrador have complete and unfettered sovereignty over the airspace within the boundaries of its EEZ (which encompasses land territories, territorial waters, and of course, EEZ), as dictated by the Constitution. It generally has an open-air policy, where any civilian and commercial plane may fly through Newfoundland&Labrador airspace as long they file a flight plan with appropriate authorities in advance for all flights exceeding a certain distance and/or crossing Newfoundland&Labrador air borders, or if required by regulations. Allied and non-allied military planes with prior authorization from the War Ministry, landing within or passing through Newfoundland&Labrador airspace, must file a flight plan with the Department of the Air Force in advance.
