Conservation laws and relativity are mathematical corollary (consequense) of symmetry of time, space and of space-time interval. These four symmetries are the only continuous mathematical symmetries of space-time coordinates that mathematically exist. (Shifts in time, shifts in space, rotation in space, and rotation in space-time). Thus we have 3 conservation laws (energy, momentum and angular momentum) and a one law we call special relativity (SR) as a consequence.

Why space-time is symmetric? I think, it is more "simple" design than any other (you can come up with many various asymmetric arrangements, but there is ONLY ONE symmetric arrangement). Thus this design is "special" among many others (which are possible but not unique).
