If you were born in one of the 50 states,
or if you have already been naturalized,
you enjoy the Right of Election.  The best
way to elect another class is to start 
declaring it on everything you write, as
evidence of the choice you have made. 
Here is how we do it in pleadings:

"COMES NOW Paul Andrew Mitchell, Sui Juris,
 Citizen of Arizona state, expressly not
 a citizen of the United States ("federal citizen"),
 to ...."

Just write a general declaration, post it
on the Internet, and save a hard copy
signed in blue ink, for your records.
Occam's Razor:  the simplest solution
is the best solution.
