The Treaty of the North Sea

Preamble

We the signatories of this, the Treaty of the North Sea, do hereby ordain and establish this document for the economic prosperity of all nations whose shores are washed upon by the North Sea. We set this in motion for the ideas of 1) Improving our economies and 2) Ensuring our mutual survival.

Article I

We the signatories of this treaty do hereby swear to never engage in hostile or aggressive actions towards another signatory of this treaty, whether by military means, espionage means, or any other form including but not limited to: trade sanctions, and anything that may cause intentional harm to another signatory.

Article II

Signatories of this pact pledge to show only respect and good will towards each other. While this will prohibit outright verbal hostility in all its forms, it will not restrict healthy debate or productive disagreement.

Article III

In the case of an attack upon one of the signatories it will be considered an attack on all. Should one of the signatories become involved in a defensive war the others will set forth all means possible to help the defending signatory; including but not limited to, political support, financial aid and military intervention.

Article IV

Any signatory will still be free to wage wars of aggression, and can if such a war should take place, request assistance from the other signatory. The assistance can be in the form of political, financial or military aid, but also includes aid in any other form that the signatories deem appropriate for the conflict. Should either party choose to engage in an offensive war, the other parties are required to assist if the request is made.

Article V

Should any signatory come into need of aid of either political or financial aid, they may request such support as is necessary from the other signatories. This is an obligation.

Article VI

Should vital knowledge of a political or military nature come to the attention of one signatory, they are required to share it with the others.

Article VII

The member nations of this Treaty do hereby agree to provide for one another an economic co-prosperity sphere. The nations of this treaty shall not do things including but not limited to: restricting trade access to member nations, restricting open borders policies towards member nations, and doing anything economically harmful towards another nation intentionally. The member nations shall agree to provide open borders unrestrictive of other member nations, as well as the elimination of tariffs among member nations completely. They shall also agree to promote trade with one another.

Article VIII

All nations seeking application to this bloc may do so provided that they have a border on the North Sea or the Norwegian Sea. Any new members will be admitted upon receiving unanimous acceptance from all current member nations, or by attaining at least 51% and retaining it without any nations voting against for at least one RL week.

Article VIII

It is the hope of all signatories that this pact may last forever, or until the bond it represents grows to the point where an upgrade is merited. Given the uncertainties of the future, however, it is recognized that should any of the above Articles be violated, or should some major irreparable disagreement arise, that this pact maybe canceled after 2 days notice.

I would like to bring to the table the first motion.

I would like to expand this treaty to encompass all of Europe, so that any nation with significant European territory may join it.

I say nay.

This would make the very name of the treaty...the treaty of the North Sea, seem too small. A Pan European treaty would require serious discussion on the nature of the treaty before it could be expanded to the rest of Europe
