        TheInfoList



The following is a list of existing national constitutions by country, semi-recognized countries, and by codification. It excludes those such as the Polish Constitution of 1791 and the Spanish Constitution of 1812 (constitutions that once existed but were later repealed).


Codified constitutions (most recent, in use today)


A codified constitution is a constitution that is contained in a single document, which is the single source of constitutional law in a state. An uncodified constitution is one that is not contained in a single document, but consists of several different sources, which may be written or unwritten.


Sovereign states





Unrecognized and partially recognized countries





Dependent territories





Uncodified constitutions


An uncodified constitution is one where not all elements are written into law: typically some elements, such as constitutional conventions, are not written into law, although such elements are almost always written down (perhaps across multiple documents and/or publications), although written in documents that are not enforceable in law. Approximate dates have been listed below based on fundamental founding documents on governance of the respective countries. * Constitution of Canada (1867) * Basic Laws of Israel (1950) * Constitution of New Zealand (1840) * Constitution of San Marino (1600) * Basic Laws of Sweden (1810) * Constitution of the United Kingdom (1215)
