The Constitution found on Omega IV

"We, the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquillity, provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution"
– The preamble of the Constitution of the United States, 2268 ("The Omega Glory")

The Constitution of the United States was a historical legal document from Earth history. This document was the supreme law of the United States of America. Laws pertaining to the Human rights of the accused were enumerated in this document.

It was one of the legal authorities cited by Attorney-at-Law Samuel T. Cogley at Captain Kirk's general court martial in 2267. (TOS: "Court Martial")

The Yangs of planet Omega IV were apparently descended from a parallel United States, and carried an original copy of the Constitution with them, which they considered the holiest of holy words.

Captain James T. Kirk impressed their tribal elders with an impassioned, memorized recital of its Preamble, explaining that while throughout the galaxy, many documents are equally good and as well-respected, none says its "thing of importance" in quite the same way. (TOS: "The Omega Glory")

"The Omega Glory" made it clear that the war there occurred generations ago, and post war the lifespan lengthened to about a thousand years. This placed the war well before 1200 AD, meaning that Omega IV had the United States, the Pledge of Allegiance, and the Constitution several centuries before Earth.
