History

Provincehood

The creation of the contemporary Hong Leng Te was preceded by an intense political debate. Since the 1864 territorial division of Zong, the main administrative division had consisted of provinces. Autonomous communities were to be created by one or more provinces with a distinct regional identity. Since the 1864 provincial organization, Hong Leng Te was part of the historical province of ??? along with the regions of Siqiao Area, Central Mountains and Some Other. In 1919, a new territorial division was initiated by the federal government, putting into question the future of Hong Leng Te. Thus, it was first planned in that Hong Leng Te would be part of the future province of Thianhu (which was roughly similar to Historical Province) but with new special considerations as the home of the national capital. The other regions of the province of Thianhu expressed fears of inequality if the national capital were associated with them. The integrating regions of That Current Province opposed such a special status, and after considering other options, like its inclusion in Omorpho or its constitution as an entity similar to a federal district, it was decided that the region of Hong Leng Te would become an autonomous province by virtue of Article 137 of the Constitution, which empowers the king to create an autonomous community in the "nation's interest" even if it did not satisfy the requirement of having a distinct historical identity. Thus, in 1920, the Province of Hong Leng Te was constituted and a Statute of Autonomy was approved.
