An Important Announcement from GDA

Recommended Posts

We here at GDA have been very busy building our relationships with our allies. Such is our friendships that we can now announce not one but two upgraded treaties: an MDP with USN and an ODP with Menotah. (Note: the Menotah upgrade has been in place for a few weeks, but we haven't had the opportunity to announce it before now.) Treaties are spoilered for length.


(It's a Long Time Coming)[/center]

When signed this treaty is a symbol of continued cooperation and friendship between United Sovereign Nations and the Global Democratic Alliance. The signatories agree to uphold all principles held within this Mutual Defense Pact and continue their friendship.

Article I: Intelligence
It goes without saying that the signatories will not endorse or commit acts of espionage against one another. Additionally, each signatory agrees to inform the other if they receive information that may cause harm to the other or to both of them assuming it does not interfere with a previous agreement with another entity.

Article II: Non-Aggression
If a member of either alliance attacks a member of the other, then both alliances will resolve the matter diplomatically.

Article III: Mutual Defense
Should either signatory be in need of defense the other signatory is required by this treaty to come to the aid of the other once they have been informed that their assistance is requested, whether it be through financial aid or military aid. However, if said aid is in violation of another agreement a solution by both parties should be sought after. Additionally, should the request for assistance arise from a prior obligation from another treaty the requesting signatory understands that the other is not obligated to help in this case.

Article IV: Cancellation
If one party wishes to cancel, they must notify the other signatory through diplomatic channels at least 72 hours in advance. In the case that the treaty is canceled both alliances agree to 72 hours of non-aggression after the 72 hour cancellation period.

For the GDA,
PopCap - President
sippyjuice - Minister of Foreign Affairs
shadowkiller - Minister of Defense
LegoKid - Minister of Economics
BastardofGod - Minister of Internal Affairs
SCUDSanta - Minister of Recruitment
darkhjustice - Minister of Recruitment

Give Me Water, Minster of Economics[/quote]


This treaty is between the alliances of Menotah and GDA with the intention of further ensuring the safety, security and prosperity of the membership of both alliances for the present and for the future. It also serves as a symbol of the friendship, loyalty and bond shared between the two signatory alliances.

Article I: Sovereignty

It must be understood that both alliances shall remain sovereign and independent organizations. Either organization undertaking action (aggressive or defensive) against other entities not included in this agreement does so without implication of the other signatory.

Article II: Non-Aggression

No member of either signatory alliance may participate in, support, or condone military action against a member within the corresponding signatory alliance. If a member nation of either signatory alliance is found to have done this, they will be ordered to offer peace within 24 hours of the initial notification, and pay reparations equivalent to the total damages inflicted. This payment of reparations must not take place if doing so would be in violation of any other treaty, document or instrument of surrender. Defending nations are required to limit retaliation to the number and type of attacks received.

If the attacking nation refuses to offer peace to the defending nation within the specified time frame, without credible reason explaining the lack of compliance to the articles of this treaty, the attacking nation will be expelled from their alliance. Further, the expelled nation is to be considered a rogue by both signatory alliances, and be dealt with accordingly.

Article III: Optional Defense
If a request is made by one alliance which is in need of military intervention or financial aid, it is highly encouraged that the other participates.

Article IV - Civility

The membership of each signatory alliance commit to remaining civil towards each other at all times, particularly in public channels, but also in private.

Article V - Financial Assistance

In case of a conflict involving an attack on a signatory alliance by a third party, the attacked alliance may request financial aid, and the requested alliance, while not obligated to, is strongly encouraged to send available aid. This article can be enacted by the leadership of either alliance, and legitimate requests for financial assistance include, but are not limited to: rogue attacks, both conventional and nuclear; wars, both large and small scale. The signatory that has been requested to provide financial assistance has 72 hours to either approve or deny the request. This article may not be enacted if it would be in violation of any other signed treaty, document or instrument of surrender.

Article VI - Espionage

Both signed alliances agree that under no circumstances shall either signatory alliance engage in espionage against the other. Further, should a signatory receive information that points towards a possible leak in another signatory's security, this information must be shared and discussed immediately. Failure to notify the other signatory alliance of this leak in a timely manner will be considered a breach of this agreement, and as such this treaty will be voided.

Article VII - Intelligence

Neither signatory alliance shall withhold information from the other signatory alliance that constitutes a direct threat to the security or well-being of the other signatory alliance. Both signatories shall strive to keep the each other informed of non-emergency situations as often as possible.

Article VII - Termination

Termination of this pact requires 72 hours notice, to be given firstly via private channels.Article III: Optional Defense
If a request is made by one alliance which is in need of military intervention or financial aid, it is highly encouraged that the other participates.

Signed for Menotah,

Ezko - Vice President
Fireblade - Prime Minister
Bradford - Deputy Prime Minister
danizduhman - Parliament, Hero of Menotah
