Reformation Charter of Sovereign League of Armed Powers
Preamble:  This charter is to serve as the legal documentation that will guide the policies and actions of the reformed Sovereign League of Armed Powers.  Sovereign League of Armed Powers previously existed from September 11, 2009 to April 24, 2011, and was itself, a realignment of the alliance previously known as The Black Hand.

b.      The Counsel of Elders shall serve as advisors to the Monarch and to the Ministry, and to the departments of their expertise.  
c.      The Counsel of Elders shall be headed by a Chairperson, who shall have previous held the position of Monarch of Sovereign League of Armed Powers.  In the event that a Monarch is not available, a former Minister may hold the position of Chairperson until such time that a former Monarch is available.
d.      At any time of its choosing, with no fewer than 3 Elders present, The Counsel of Elders may hear trials to impeach the Monarch, or to vote on a new chairman.  Any Elder may call for such meeting, but to obtain validity, the meeting must obtain a quorum (50% +1) of Elders present.

b.   The Monarch, the appointed Ministers, and all Members shall be subject to regulation by this charter, the laws, and foreign policy active in the alliance at the time.  Sovereign League of Armed Powers may not ever accept terms of surrender that impose a change or violation of any of the documents mentioned in this article.

Article V:  Amendment
a.   Any member of Sovereign League of Armed Powers may propose an amendment to this document at any time.  In the event of an active war, the amendment would take effect only at the cessation of hostilities.
b.   Any amendment proposed shall first be subject to approval by unanimous vote of the Ministry and then presented to the Monarch for acceptance or Veto.  In the event that the Monarch chooses to veto the entirety of the amendment after it has been approved by the Ministry, the Ministry may request the Monarch to present the proposed amendment to the Membership.  The Membership will then be given 72 hours to review and discuss the merits of the amendment, and then 24 hours to vote on the outcome of the amendment.  If the Membership approves the amendment with 75% majority vote in favor, the Monarch may not veto the amendment.  If the Ministry fails to achieve unanimous decision, the Monarch may take the amendment to the Membership, who following the same election process, may approve the amendment.  If the Ministry is not able to reach unanimous approval, and the Monarch does not approve of the amendment, then the amendment shall not come up for election to the membership.  If the Monarch and the Ministry unanimously approve the amendment, the amendment shall become law without the necessity of election by the membership.
c.   Alliance disbandment or merging into another alliance will be considered an amendment in the form of a cancellation of this document, and shall follow the guidelines listed in this article.

Love the show of support, most notably from ODN here. 

 

We look forward to the times when ODN will raid us repeatedly and harshly to interrupt their own tech deals.

Wait, I never knew Banned left ODN  :blink: . Why wasn't I aware nor noticed about this atrocity?! I demand an explanation upon the Government of the Network and from Banned answering the key question that we all have within our trait of thought, why did he dare to leave the Citrus Brotherhood!

I am willing to answer this important and highly valuable question under this unavoidable and unbearable interrogation. 

 

In my long vacation away from the game, I was made aware that ODN began to identify their members as "ODNistas" rather than the term I had previously worked to hard to try to get ODN to adopt of "Citrusexuals"

 

I could not work under those conditions.
