The state-city model is considered as the perspective of Iranian cities in the 2050s, which is governed by its own half-command. The hypothesis of the present research is that if the participation of citizens is expanded as a network through the development of new technologies, then the passive state-city governance model can be turned into a network-state-city governance model. To achieve such a vision, one must consider past trends, current relationships, and future plans. In examining past trends, there have been three major historical trends: the macro-trends of self-governing cities, the semi-autonomous city-states, and the obedient states. Understanding governance in these city-states leads to historical knowledge and accumulation of oneself to draw the desired perspective. On the other hand, future city-states require an understanding of geographical space within a paradigm shift. To strategize the aforementioned landscape, the present research method is qualitative and based on retrospective technique and the six strategic steps in achieving the vision are outlined in that these steps were formulated over a 5-year period (from 2020 to 2045) in the form of different development approaches. After that, the mission, which is the identity and goals of the policy-making bodies in this direction, is determined. The results showed that in order to achieve the vision of a networked city government, the elements in the paradigm shift must be understood in the light of the transformation of governance, politics, economics, education and technology. Finally, with the Urban Sustainability Plan as the goal of the research mission, several fundamental values ​​are introduced as continuous ethical principles that should be considered by policymakers in order to connect the organizational mission to the vision.
