[b]I. Preamble
[/b]
The undersigned nations are sovereign independent entities who sign this pact in the hopes of peace and prosperity for the mutual betterment of the respective signatories as well as the Arctic region as a whole. Through this treaty the aforementioned states strive to ensure security and justice through a unified Arctic defense, increase well-being through economic measures, and promote Arctic unity through cross-cultural exchange as well as increased cooperation.
[b]
II. Non-Aggression & Intelligence[/b]

The aforementioned nations agree to a pact of non-aggression, and will not interfere or step into the soil of any other member nation that does not specifically ask for outside assistance. Nor will any signatory illegally spy, destabilize, or in any other way attempt to bring harm to another signatory.

The nations in this pact agree to disclose and share any relevant intelligence and information that would adversely affect the security of a fellow member nation or this organization.

[b]III. Mutual Defense[/b]

The aforementioned nations agree to a pact of mutual defense and pledge to defend any member of this treaty that is being attacked by a foreign aggressor.

[b]VII. Membership[/b]

Nations may apply to join this treaty at any time, as either a member state or observer state. There are no specific requirements to apply for membership, however geographical location in the Arctic or close proximity to other member nations is suggested.

If over three-quarters of members vote in favor of expulsion, the nation in question will be removed from the Confederation of Arctic Nations and will have neither the privileges nor responsibilities associated with membership in this organization. They may be reinstated if they follow all procedures for membership outlined in this Article.

[b]VIII. Amendments[/b]

This treaty, excluding Article II, may be amended at any time. Any changes to the wording of this document require more than three-quarters majority of all member states in favor of the proposed changes.

It appears that one of our member nations, the Commonwealth of Canada, as inexplicably collapsed. We are currently deploying peacekeeper forces in the eastern portion of the Commonwealth of Canada and as ask that each member nation help contribute peacekeepers as they see fit.

Greenland's Representative to the Confederation of Arctic Nations and son of the late President of the Northern Republic, Simon Eyvindsson, addressed the other member nations present in the Confederation of Arctic Nations headquarters.

"Greetings, my friends and allies! I am delighted to work alongside all of you to ensure the successful and continued operation of the CAN. Here are some matters that I wish to discuss.

First, each member should name their representative that will lead their permanent delegation in the CAN headquarters. Additionally, each nation should bring a standard sized flag of their nation so we may display it in front as well. Finally, we will be staffing the headquarters with English-French translators in addition to any other languages member nations request.

Next, we should begin elections for the Secretary General and Security Council Chairman of the Confederation of Arctic Nation. The Secretary General heads day-to-day affairs, the General Assembly where we discuss and vote on resolutions, as well as acting as the spokesperson for the CAN. The Security Council Chairman is in charge of coordinating CAN efforts during times of war, leading CAN war exercises, in addition to coordinating peacekeeping forces in the CAN protectorate. Each nation should nominate individuals they feel would be suitable to each position.

Finally, as you are well aware the Confederation of Arctic Nations currently possesses a large protectorate over much of northern Canada. Greenland has pledged to provide 10,000 peacekeepers in the region, however we welcome any member to provide additional troops to maintain order and security in the protectorate."

"We would like to nominate William Rolfe for the position of the Secretary General. In addition, we would send over troops to the CAN protectorate, but for the Nava Doctrine, which forbids us from stationing troops overseas. We apologize for any inconvinence."

La Republique's representative, Gregory Matavice, addressed the rest of the CAN. An experienced legislator who resigned his seat within Quebec's National Assembly to accept this prestigious position, Mativice was well adjusted to speaking formally.

"Quebec takes her role in the CAN extremely seriously, and we are of course concerned about the situation regarding our newfound protectorates. To that end, we pledge to commit 10 000 soldiers to the protection of these territories, under the leadership of a united CAN military command, to be deployed to whichever regions deemed necessary.

"Additionally, after much discussion with my superiors within the Quebecois government, I have decided to throw my own hat into the ring for the position of Secretary-General."

After arriving to the HQ by limo.
"Hello good people, My name is Nell Rode. I have been asked by the president of the Republic of Newfoundland to send this letter. It is apparent that the nation wants to join in membership, and that I shall be a rep."

[quote]"The President of Newfoundland, Dominic Johnson, has requested to join, and be a member of the Confederation of Arctic Nations. In the hopes that we could help each-other grow stronger, and grow economically. I hope you consider us,
Signed [i]President Dominic Andrew Johnson, of Newfoundland[/i][/quote]

Simon Eyvindsson read the letter before addressing the other CAN representatives and Nell Rodes.

"We are glad to see Newfoundland applying for membership. The first step to becoming a member is being an observer for a period of one year (OOC: one month), and we certainly have no issue with granting Newfoundland observer status. But first, could you tell us a little bit more about your nation? What is your government and economic structures, what are your main exports, and what can you contribute to the CAN?"

Back in the closed off quarters of the headquarters, Simon spoke to the other men and women from the CAN member nations. Both William Rolfe, of the Holy Empire of Ursalia, and Gregory Matavice, of La Republique du Quebec, are running for the position of the Secretary General of the CAN.

Greenland nominates Lt. Gen. Mikael Angerdlánguk of the Greenlandic Marines to the position of Security Council Chairman. He has been in the military for over 30 years and has personally led the Northern Command since Greenland's inception. We believe he is an exceptional candidate for the position.

If no other member nation would like to nominate an individual for either position we can move to the voting process.

The Blue Heaven representative, Slyvia Hawkings stood up. "I would like to announce that I'd like to run for the position of Secretary-General of the CAN and that Blue Heaven will donate 20,000 soldiers to the organization's peacekeeping forces."

Manitoba's representative Julia Small then in turn stood up to speak "We are not going to nominate a person to run for Sec-gen, however we would like to nominate General Peter Samsanov for Security Council Chairman. We shall also be sending 10,000 troops to the protectorate."

Nell takes her turn to speak to Simon of her country.

"I understand that we must be a observer first, and hopefully we could learn something of how this all works. As for how my nation works, we are a small republican government. Mostly a small nation of less than a million. Mostly because we don't have too good farmland. However we have a plentiful variety of fish, as such our diets would reflect that, as we usually eat fish. As for our decent economy, we have less factories and stores and large cities than what most nations would have. But this also has a flip side, low unemployment, and easy to govern, and a decent economy. Our economy is a free enterprise economy, with some regulation, and other government involvement. We also have a few oil wells, and iron, copper, gold, zinc, and nickle mines. These mines would send their goods to one of our harbors, or directly to a factory. The factories we do have make your house-hold appliances and the like, electronics (mostly used for the home appliances factories), as well as a few smelters, and a few that make wires. Our main exports are steel, gold, copper, oil, and fish goods. As for what we can contribute to CAN, we have more than enough of our resources to go-around to help CAN, and we could help provide light military and economic support as-well."

As an observer to the CAN you will be permitted to have a non-voting representative here in the headquarters to partake in discussions with other members. You also abide by the CAN charter except for matters dealing with mutual defense. As an observer you agree to not attack fellow member nations however you are not required by the charter to defend other members, yet.

After a year as an observer (OOC: 1 month) you are eligible to become a full member of the organization where you would have a voting representative as well as uphold all articles of the CAN charter, including mutual defense.

"The Holy Empire of Ursalia no longer exists. In its place, the Republic of Noveria stands. With that said, we intend to maintain our ties with the C.A.N. If you'd like, we could submit our signatures."

[b]Resolution I.[/b], Admission of the Republic of Newfoundland as an Observer State, has officially passed and the Confederation of Arctic Nation enthusiastically welcomes the Republic of Newfoundland as an observer state to the Confederation of Arctic Nations. You are invited to staff a non-voting representative at the C.A.N. headquarters and participate in dialogue and discussions with our member states.

After a period of one year (ooc: one month), your status will be upgraded to that of a full-fledged member state so long as no current member of the C.A.N. voices any objections. We also ask that you provide your nation's signatures so that they may be added to our charter.

Additionally, Lt. Gen. Mikael Angerdlánguk has been elected as the Confederation of Arctic Nation's first Chairman of the Security Council and will be charge of coordinating movements during periods of war as well as managing peacekeeping operations in C.A.N. administered protectorates.

[b]PRIVATE[/b]

The vote for Secretary-General is undecided as Gregory Matavice still needs one vote to achieve the supermajority needed to be elected. We realize Blue Heaven and Noveria both have excellent candidates, however in the interest of unity I implore your nations to consider voting for Matavice.

Several provinces of the CAN protectorate in Canada have united under a common banner seeking independence from the CAN to form their own independent nation. The de facto leader of this independence movement, Rob Halford, representative of the wishes of the people in these territories, along with fellow officers of the independence faction Ian Kilmister and Antony Iommi, wishes to meet with representatives of the CAN to discuss the separation of these provinces from the CAN as one single, independent nation.
