Finnegans Wake Accords

Preamble

In the interest of friendship, protection, and guidance Valhalla is extending its hand to Order of the Four Leaf Clover (OFLC) and both agree to the following protectorate agreement. Both parties shall honor and help each other grow.

Article I: Sovereignty

Valhalla will not diminish or infringe upon the sovereignty of OFLC. Valhalla and OFLC recognize each other as sovereign and separate alliances.

Article II: Peace and Respect

Valhalla and OFLC will coexist in a state of peace. Neither alliance will attack the other militarily or verbally. Both alliances will remain respectful towards each other at all times and any differences will be handled via private discussion.

Article III: Protection and Defense

An attack on OFLC will be considered an attack on Valhalla, and will be met with all available strength in defense. If the attack is found to be provoked by OFLC through political faux-pas, insults, flaming, trolling, spying or just general asshattery etc, Valhalla although still reserving the right to defend OFLC is under no obligation to. Should Valhalla find itself engaged in war, OFLC has the right, but not the obligation, to assist in any way possible, including but not limited to financial and military support.

Article IV: Aggression and Treaty Signing

OFLC agrees to alert Valhalla if they have decided to go on the offensive towards another alliance at least 48 hours before doing so. OFLC will never declare war on another alliance without first discussing it with Valhalla leadership. OFLC will discuss and get permission from Valhalla before signing any treaty with another alliance, any failure to do so can be used as ground to terminate this protectorate.

Article V: Cancellation

Both parties agree to give each other 48 hour notice before canceling this treaty, during which all articles will be upheld.

Any acts of asshattery can result in this treaty to be canceled immediately upon notification.

Article VI: Timeline

Violations of this agreement are grounds for dissolution of this agreement without prior notice.

I see a problem with the government structure. The Cabinet ''will be responsible for voting on the most important of matters, but nothing more.'' But at the same time, ''[m]ajor decisions must be voted on by the entire Council [i.e., Cabinet + Triumvirate].'' What is the difference between a ''most important matter'' and a ''major decision''?

Also, the above is proof that I not only skimmed the OP.

Good luck but god almighty that flag is full of fugly.

I told um my flag was crappy, but no one said anything. :|

Don't suppose there is any difference, in the meaning. The entire Council only votes on things like DoWs and Charter amendments.
