Introduction to Ignita Veritas United

Inter-Governmental Powers of Statehood


Ignita Veritas United (IVU) is a union of States, united by sovereignty and human rights, as an Inter-Governmental Organization (IGO) possessing inherent governmental authority in its own right, exercising its official status in diplomatic relations.


The authorities and capabilities of Ignita Veritas United (IVU) all come from its status as an Inter-Governmental Organization (IGO). This is a rare form of legal entity, which even some lawyers and diplomats do not understand, only because the modern dominance of national corporate statutory law has distracted people from the timeless benefits of real international law.


Under international law, an IGO is defined as a type of “State”, by serving as an “instrumentality” for “the exercise of sovereign authority” of its Member States (2004 Immunities of States, Article 2.1(b)(iii)), as a joint government conducting the “external affairs of States” (1981 Internal Affairs of States, Preamble: ¶7, Article 1).


An IGO holds equal sovereignty as a “State”, classified as a “subject of international law”, meaning its status is not derived from a territory, but rather is established by effect of international law (1969 Law of Treaties, Article 3), which is fully “binding upon” all other States as “recognized” by multiple conventions (Article 38).


As a result, an IGO possesses the inherent legal capacity for diplomatic and consular relations (1963 Consular Relations, Articles 1(d), 3, 17.1), as a non-territorial State (1961 Diplomatic Relations, Articles 1(i), 23.1, 30.1).


Legal Status Equal to the United Nations

All authorities and capabilities of the United Nations (UN) are solely derived from it being properly established as an Inter-Governmental Organization (IGO) by its Charter, which is the same legal status as Ignita Veritas United (IVU) by its own Charter.


In international law, an “inter-governmental organization” (IGO) is also called an “international organization” (1969 Law of Treaties, Article 1(i)), and is specifically included among “States and other subjects of international law” (Article 3), having the legal capacity to enter into “Treaties” as a type of State (Article 5). Therefore, the legal status of an IGO is no less than that of any sovereign State.


By the “principle of sovereign equality of States” (1970 Cooperation of States, 6th Principle), “All States are juridically [legally] equal… as equal members of the international community”, including “international organizations [IGO’s]” (1974 Economic Rights of States, Article 10). Therefore, the legal status of Ignita Veritas United (IVU) as an IGO is equal to that of the United Nations (UN) which is also an IGO.


Official Status Directly from International Law

The official status of IVU and its IGO Official Bodies is established directly from the modern framework of conventions recognizing international law, which are binding upon all countries (1969 Law of Treaties, Article 38), and also binding upon the United Nations (UN) (2012 Declaration on Rule of Law, Article 2).


Therefore, as a matter of law, IVU as an IGO does not require any permission, authorization or approval from, nor any affiliation with the United Nations (UN), to exercise its own equal diplomatic status and authorities independently. IVU does not require any “recognition” by the UN, which is simply another IGO institution. The UN has no authority over a different IGO, which by definition has the same inherent official capacity in its own right.


IVU already possesses the only “recognition” it needs, directly from specific provisions of conventional international law, which fully prove its official powers and authorities. The legal facts of those authorizing provisions are fully presented, in detail with specific section numbers, throughout the IVU website and its IGO documents and materials, as complete and verifiable evidence, giving public legal notice of its official status.

Alternative to the United Nations

The United Nations (UN) is “The UN”, with the political weight of all its perceived power and influence, precisely and solely because its legal entity was formed as an Inter-Governmental Organization (IGO), chartered by Member States.


Ignita Veritas United (IVU) is also properly legally established as an IGO, by a constitutional Charter of sovereign Member States. Thus, by binding force and effect of conventional international law, IVU has the same legal status as the UN, carrying exactly the same legal authorities as the UN, because it is also an IGO.


Therefore, IVU and its IGO official bodies are independent “United Nations level” institutions in their own right, possessing their own official powers and authorities in international affairs.


As a result, IVU serves as a meaningful alternative to the UN, for free and independent States to benefit from the full protections of real international law, restoring and preserving their national sovereignty and human rights of their peoples.


IVU provides the necessary infrastructure and advanced legal foundations to empower independent States, sovereign historical institutions, indigenous nations, and their inter-governmental alliances, to assert and exercise their official authorities, while maintaining independence from globalist establishment systems.


Historical and Indigenous Member States


The United Nations (UN), considered the primary modern forum for diplomatic affairs, only has Member States which are modern territorial countries, and generally discriminates against historical and indigenous Nation-States, which in rare cases are accepted only as non-voting Observer States.


Ignita Veritas United (IVU), as an Inter-Governmental Organization (IGO), serves as the supporting infrastructure, vehicle for fully exercising sovereignty, and most traditional forum for diplomatic relations, for the full spectrum of all types of States.


Member States of IVU, in addition to territorial countries, are also diverse sovereign historical institutions, indigenous nations, and their inter-governmental alliances, including those which no longer own nor govern their former territories.


In this way, IVU finally gives a voice to all the Peoples of the Nations, and their history, heritage, culture and traditions, representing all the institutions of humanity, for effective participation in world affairs as essential members of the true international community of Nation States.


Non-Territorial States

International law recognizes the existence of “non-territorial” (international) States, which can exercise diplomatic status without having any territory (1961 Diplomatic Relations, Articles 1(i), 23.1, 30.1).


This rare type of “State” is called a “subject of international law”, because its sovereignty is established by effect of law, not by holding territory (1969 Law of Treaties, Article 3).


By the “sovereign equality of States” (1970 Cooperation of States, 6th Principle), “All States”, thus including non-territorial, “are… equal members of the international community” (1974 Economic Rights of States, Article 10).


Historical States

International law recognizes the diplomatic status of sovereign historical institutions “since ancient times” (1963 Consular Relations, Preamble: ¶1). It confirms that “all nations from ancient times have recognized… the sovereign equality of States” of “differing constitutional and social systems” including historical (1961 Diplomatic Relations, Preamble: ¶1-3).


It requires that a “State shall not discriminate as between States” including a historical form of statehood (1961 Diplomatic Relations, Article 47.1). It confirms that “No State shall be subjected to discrimination” based on “differences in political, economic and social systems” including historical statehood (1974 Economic Rights of States, Preamble: ¶3, ¶7; Article 4).


Recognition Powers

Because the IVU Sovereign Charter was established by historical institutions of royalty as its founding “negotiating States” (1969 Law of Treaties, Article 2.1(e)), it possesses both legal standing and heraldic jurisdiction (Black’s Law 2nd 1910: “Court of Honor”, p.289) to grant official “Sovereign Recognition” to surviving restored kingdoms, principalities and indigenous nations as non-territorial States in diplomatic relations.


IVU and its autonomous Judiciary Courts thus possess legal capacity to issue a valid “Letters Patent” certificate of Sovereign Recognition by royal authority and royal protocols in customary international law, as a “grant by the sovereign… [of] some authority [or] title” as a “royal grant” (Black’s Law 2nd 1910: “Patent: English Law”, p.880; “Royal grants”, p.1046).


Legal Entity Created by Sovereign Charter Alone


International law mandates that the legal entity of an IGO is officially created and legally established by its constitutional Charter treaty alone, and is exempt from needing any domestic registration or incorporation in any country:

A constitutional Charter is a “treaty which is the constituent instrument of an international organization” (1969 Law of Treaties, Article 5), which thereby creates the legal entity of an “inter-governmental organization” (Article 2.1(i)). That IGO legal entity is thus classified as a “subject of international law”, because it is constituted by law, by means of a sovereign Charter (Article 3), as enacted by its founding States (Article 2.1(e)). The resulting legal status as an official legal entity, created by Charter as a treaty, is thus fully “binding” upon all States (Article 38).


Non-Profit Tax Exempt and Tax Deductible

Tax Exemption

Ignita Veritas United (IVU) as an inter-governmental (IGO) State, and thus any subsidiary Foundation or Trust, is universally Tax Exempt under international law (1974 Charter of Economic Rights of States, Article 2.1; 2004 Convention on Immunities of States, Articles 1, 2.1(b)(iii)), which is “binding” on all countries (1969 Convention on Law of Treaties, Article 38; US Constitution, Article 6 ¶2). Any American not-for-profit subsidiary is Tax Exempt by automatic statutory “501(a) Status” as a humanitarian “civic organization for social welfare” and “society for educational purposes” (US Tax Code, 26 USC §501(a)).


Tax Deductible

All donations should be Tax Deductible by universal standards of customary international law, evidenced by the American rule: All donations “exclusively for charitable or educational purposes”, to a domestic subsidiary (US Tax Code: 26 USC §170(a)(1); §170(c)(2)), or from individuals to foreign branches (26 USC §170(c)(4)), are automatically Tax Deductible, including donations through an affiliate trustee entity “for the use of” Ignita Veritas United (26 USC §170(c)).


Notices on Authorized Grants Practices

Grants Only as Authorized

All grants and donations intended for the IGO must be made to an authorized Account or appointed Trustee of the IGO, as confirmed in writing by the Office of Inspector General at the time. Grants inherently exclude any conditions of influence, which shall not be accepted. All funds will be used exclusively for the humanitarian missions of the IGO under its constitutional Charter.


Grants Exclude Any Services

All grants intended for the IGO must begin with liquid monetary funds available for immediate humanitarian use. Any support services such as “monetizing assets” are outside the scope of IGO missions and executive functions, and shall not involve the IGO government. (The independent university Law Center can be hired for such purposes by a prepaid retainer.)
