It is also my proud and solemn duty to promote Gul Laser bream to the command of the Galor class battleship the Aman Evek.

Long live Cardassia!

Also just on Sci's version of the Federation anthem, I do like it a lot (mostly because I like the Soviet anthem as a example of the genre) but I think that it works better as a Cardassian one instead.
Imagine if you will a particularly lazy state poet who has been tasked with writing a national anthem and decided merely to change the words of the old Soviet anthem.
Below is how I would imagine this:

United forever in service and duty,
Our mighty union will ever endure.
The great Cardassian Union will live through the ages
The dream of a people
Their fortress secure

Long live our glorious Union!
Built by the people's mighty hand!
Long live our People, united and strong!
Strong in our Empire tried by fire!
Long may our crimson flag inspire!
Shining in glory for all peoples to see!

Through days dark and stormy
Where Great Akleen led us
Our eyes saw the bright sun of glory above
And central command our leaders
With faith in the State,
Inspired us to build up
The Union that we love

Long live our glorious Union!
Built by the people's mighty hand!
Long live our People, united and strong!
Strong in our Empire tried by fire!
Long may our crimson flag inspire!
Shining in glory for all peoples to see!

We fought for the future,
Destroyed the invader,
And brought to our homeworld
The Laurels of Fame
Our glory will live in
The memory of ages
And all generations
Will honour our name.

Long live our glorious Union!
Built by the people's mighty hand!
Long live our People, united and strong!
Strong in our Empire tried by fire!
Long may our crimson flag inspire!
Shining in glory for all Peoples to see!
You can't appreciate the Soviet anthem until you've heard it in the original Cardassian...
