Joint Announcement from SLCB and Vanguard

Recommended Posts

Ever since we boxes first drifted into the Atlantic Ocean, there has been one alliance in particular who have stood by us through thick and thin; and as the cardboard flotilla multiplied in size, still they stood stalwart by our sides. It is, therefore, my honour to announce the latest stage in our friendship;

The Any Port in a Storm Accords



As sovereign alliances bound by a common purpose and a commitment to professionalism, Vanguard and Seaworthy Liberian Cardboard Boxes have long shared amicable relations. In order to sanctify the shared loyalty, camaraderie and dedication to success, both alliances hereby agree to be bound by the following terms.

Article I - Sovereignty

Each signatory formally recognises the right of each party to exercise ultimate internal authority, in addition to possessing a monopoly on the legitimate use of physical force within its own territory. If one party engages in military or political action against an outside entity, the party does so without implication of the corresponding party, unless otherwise agreed upon through the invocation of this agreement.

Article II - Camaraderie

Both parties agree to commit to peace, tolerance, respect, trust, and above all, friendship. Misconduct, dishonour and disrespect displayed by one party towards the corresponding party will be discussed through private venues, in a civilized and rational manner, and dealt with accordingly. The parties, sharing common beliefs and values, will endeavour, at all times, to exemplify both honour and etiquette.

Article III - Intelligence

The parties agree to share all intelligence they obtain that could prove useful to the other party. Furthermore, if either signatory learns of a security breach within, or a credible threat to the other signatory, the acquiring signatory will convey all pertinent information to the other signatory. However, there is one exception: a signatory may choose not to disclose information provided by a third party that wishes the information to remain confidential and holds a treaty with said signatory.

Article IV - Peace

Article IV, Item A. Both parties renounce all forms of subjugation, oppression, or manipulation that may be used against the countersigned, and pledge to refrain from funding, supporting, or participating in said acts, whether intra-alliance or inter-alliance. Ratification of this document proclaims an everlasting peace between the signatories, but for the activation of Article VII.

Article IV, Item B. No member of either signatory may participate in, support, or condone military action against a member of the countersigned. If a signatory constituent violates this Item, the offender will be ordered to offer peace as soon as possible, and pay reparations equivalent to the total damages inflicted. Defending nations are required to refrain from retaliatory attacks while the two governments deal with the situation. Following orders to secure peace, should the attacking nation refuse to offer peace, continue the offensive, or fail to pay appropriate reparations, without credible explanation, the attacking nation will be expelled from its alliance. Further, the expellee shall be dealt with as a rogue nation by all parties.

Article IV, Item C. Neither signatory alliance will engage in or endorse espionage or subversion of any form against the countersigned, including forum breaching or in-game spying.

Article IV, Item D. Neither signatory will impose or ask others to impose Senate-enforced sanctions against a constituent of the corresponding signatory.

Article V; Martial Collaboration

Article V, Item A. Should either signatory become engaged in a defensive military conflict, they may officially request, through appropriate channels, financial or military assistance for resolving the conflict or rebuilding once the conflict concludes. The countersigned will be obliged to acquiesce within twenty-four (24) hours of the initial appeal.

Article V, Item B. Either signatory may appeal to the countersigned to provide military, financial and/or political support towards a military engagement initiated by the requesting signatory.

Article V, Item C. This document does not oblige the countersigned to fulfil a request made through Article V, Item B; however, it is strongly encouraged. Further, if a signatory will not provide the requested assistance, they must inform the militarily engaged or requesting party of this decision within forty-eight (48) hours of the initial appeal.

Article VI - Cancellation

Article VI, Item A. Either signatory may terminate this pact at any time and withdraw its status as a signatory; however, the withdrawing alliance must notify the government of the countersigned, through the appropriate private channels, seventy-two (72) hours prior to their desired time of termination. However, should either party breach an article of this document, their signatures on the treaty will be considered void, unless otherwise stated within the treaty or previously agreed upon by both alliances.

Article VI, Item B. If an attack is made on either party, during the aforementioned seventy-two (72) hour period, this treaty will remain in effect until seventy-two (72) hours after the conflict concludes.

Article VI, Item C. Upon cancellation by either signatory, Article IV of this document will remain active for a period of seven (7) days, beginning after the appropriate seventy-two (72) hour notification period has concluded.

Article VII - Amendments

Any amendment made to this treaty must first be discussed and agreed upon by the appropriate government officials of each party, and undergo the appropriate processes.
