The Cesidian Root is an independent root (or Internet) that was started by the Governor of the UMMOA on 30 September 2005, and for the benefit of unrepresented or under-represented people who wish to utilise this resource for reasons of independence and/or national security.
VIPs and DNS technicians also utilise this root for the same or similar reasons, and we hope to provide our services to independence-minded jurisdictions worldwide in the future as well.
The Cesidian Root became a full-fledged root on 23 November 2005, and on 11 January 2006 it became a complete Internet. On 8 March 2006, the Cesidian Root became an intercontinental Internet, now using root servers in the Europe and North America regions.
The Cesidian Root now resolves not one, but several roots: ICANN-IANA root (or US government/legacy root), Cesidian Root proper, UCANN2, some OpenNIC domains, and New-Nations.
The Cesidian Root was started because problems were discovered with the Public-Root, problems that lead us to believe that the root was not safe, nor was the future of this root entirely assured. The Governor of the UMMOA held not one, but 10 Top-Level Domains (TLDs) that depended on the services of this root, and these TLDs at this point in time required another root for their services.
After discovering that another root that was forming in the wake of the Public-Root collapse was no more reliable than the Public-Root itself, the Governor of the UMMOA and Massimiliano Mastrocinque, a brilliant Italian IT, started the Cesidian Root.
Later Karin and Peter Dambier joined the team with their eclectic IT skills. Today the Cesidian Root can also count on the technical perfectionism of Kai Kellner, who is making the Cesidian Root one of the best maintained DNS root server systems worldwide.
Today the Cesidian Root exists, and is maintained despite the high expenses, for reasons beyond independence and/or national security.
The ICANN-IANA's Internet offers no protection of First Amendment rights within its global, monopolistic network, which is hypocrisy besides being a violation of Cesidian law. If you are not going to enforce universal rules and rights applicable to all Internet users across the world, regardless of jurisdiction, what is the purpose of a single ICANN root?
However, even corporate, non-government controlled parts of the Internet have become so arbitrary and commercial that the network no longer deserves to be supported as a global public service, since it largely serves the interests of private profiteers who never developed the Internet, yet now act like they have some esclusive monopoly over certain word strings, even over single Roman characters.

No, I don't want you for my army. Our army is already extremely powerful! ;-) What "Uncle Sid" needs is volunteers to come forward to run a server. While we could use secondary root servers, even a humble Windows server, and a simple 256 KB ADSL line would be fine to activate a DNS resolver. To run a server you'll need at least:
