The Twenty-eighth Amendment of the Constitution of Carloso (State Religion) Act 2018 is an amendment to the Carlosian constitution that established Christianity as the state religion of the Federal Republic of Carloso. The bill was proposed and supported by the Executive Council of President Tobón and approved by the Parliament of Carloso. The Amendment was voted on by a referendum of the people on 11 November 2018. The proposal was approved with 109,447,991 (57.72%) voting Yes and 80,158,414 (42.28%) voting No.

Prior to the Amendment, Christianity was already recognised as having a special position within the constitution, however Carloso was considered to be a de jure secular state. The referendum was supported by National Salvation and opposed by every other party in parliament, including the Conservative Party, Democratic Party, Socialist Republicans, the Synarchist Union, Communist Party and most independents.
