Article One: Svalbard withholds the rights to the following items in regards to national and regional security
[*]Svalbard reserves the right to search any vessel in inside its territorial waters
[*]Svalbard reserves the right to force any aircraft traversing its airspace to land at a Svalbard airbase
to be search if it is considered to be a threat, carrying illicit materials such as narcotic substances, weaponry or terrorists.
[*]Svalbard Reserves the right to intervene in any regional irregularities it holds an interest in.

"The Athenian Federation can not help but wonder how the economy of Svalbard isn't collapsing with all men between 18 and 50 in a branch of the Armed Forces"

All power provided by the S.C.E. (Svalbard Clean Energies) Commission, an umbrella company that includes the Svalbard Windfarms Organisation, Tidal Generators Incorporated, and A.G.E. (Applied Geological Enterprises)

[u][b]SVALBARD WINDFARMS[/b][/u]

Due to the abundance of fresh breezes in Svalbard, late in the 20th century(1990s), we purchased several wind turbines from the Dutch, and reverse-engineered them (basically, we took the existing technology, and scaled it up for mass-production of our electrical needs.)

[u][b]TIDAL GENERATORS INCORPORATED[/b][/u]

This technology is still in its infancy, and further research is necessary. Currently, our prototype Tidal Generators are only producing 1.5 to 2% of the total power consumption of Idaho and its territories. There are actually two different industries at work in this field, one dealing primarily with hydro-electric generation methods, whilst the other (and more experimental) deals with passing a current between large offshore electrodes, converting the water into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen is then mixed back with the oxygen, and the mixture ignited. The explosion caused is used to power large engines based on floating platforms above the electrodes, thus generating more electricity to make this a self-sustaining process.

[u][b]APPLIED GEOLOGICAL ENTERPRISES[/b][/u]

During field surveys, it was noted that we have an abundance of both geysers (superheated water) and thermal vents. Our scientists were tasked with harnessing this natural resource, and came up with, after much trial and error (and the loss of several thousand lives), a viable way of creating Geothermal Generators. The technology is based on gas turbines, where the superheated water (or the pure thermal vents) turn the huge turbines which are attached to the generating dynamos (incidentally, this is where many of the lives were lost, trying to find a way to channel the enormous energies from our living planet so that we could harness them to our needs)

[u][b]NEW COMPANY FORMED[/b][/u]
Rannoch Corporation is a newly formed Svalbardan company based in the capital. It is a research, development and production company working in the field of gun manufacturing, specifically in the field of sniper's rifles and other special forces based weaponry
Its products include the Bor, which is a bolt-action 7.62x51mm NATO caliber sniper rifle. The weapon received the code name Alex during development, after the name of the lead designer Aleksander Leżucha, creator of the 12.7x99mm NATO Wilk anti-materiel rifle. After the development phase, the rifle received the military designation 'Bor'.
