Imperial Decree 001, or 001. Proclamation of Accession, Vadoma I, is the first documented use of the statutory instruments of the Bovic Empire of the West after the division of the Natopian Empire was formalized on 13.10.1709 AN. The division of the Natopian Empire was formalized by the Declaration of Lindstrom, later confirmed by the Micras Cartography Society[1] and the Micras Treaty Organization[2] in 1709 AN.

Imperial Decree 001 was issued by the Empress of Western Natopia, Vadoma I. The decree is countersigned by a myriad of government officials, nobles, and other diplomatic or political officials, including the Emperor of Eastern Natopia, Nathan III. It was issued from Government House, the current seat of the Transitional Government of Western Natopia.

This Imperial Decree is the Proclamation of Accession of Empress Vadoma I to the throne of Western Natopia, serving as one of the founding documents of the nascent Western Natopian state. The document also establishes her husband and consort as co-Emperor of Western Natopia.
