Preamble

We, the members of the League of United Defense, hereafter known as LOUD, come together to form a great League as outlined in this document.. Any violations of such will be punished as necessary. The main objective of LOUD is to always strive for honesty in our friendships, ideals, and members.

Article I – The League

Section I - Membership

The general membership of LOUD who have been accepted, and sworn the Oath of Honor and Respect, opinion will always be held highest in regards to the best course of action for the alliance

All nations will be required to fill out an application in the appropriate format listed on LOUD’s forums to be considered for membership. Only an Ascendancy member or the Commissioner may accept members into the League.

Because loyalty is such a large concern to LOUD, all members must take the Oath of Honor and Respect before being accepted into LOUD. All members agree to be bound by the oath until they either leave or are expelled from LOUD. In addition, no LOUD member may be a member of another alliance.

Section II - Duties

After being accepted, all members must be active and willing to support others via aid, training, and anything else that is needed at the time.

It is a privilege for the members to vote on matters that concern the well-being of LOUD. Any changes in the alliances such as color change, treaty acceptance, or public opinion will be voted on by the members of the League.

Section III - Resignation

If ever a member feels the need to leave the alliance, they must post a resignation topic in the proper forum. As long as they are in good standing with the alliance, they will be allowed to leave. They must then have their AA switched within 24 hours. Once they post a resignation, they will no longer be protected by the alliance, however we will not show aggressive manner towards them, until a 7 day grace period has passed. After which they will be considered ghosts and will be pursued militarily.

On no condition will a nation be allowed to leave during a time of war or high-alert.

Article II – The Government

Section I – The Ascendancy

The Ascendancy is the highest authority in the League of United Defense.

They make the final decisions for all alliance affairs, including items such as but not limited to: approving/denying treaties, declaring war, and appointing heads of departments. The Ascendancy can pass any motion with a two-thirds (2/3) majority decision.

The Ascendancy will consist of three (3) members, elected initially by the members of the League. Each member of the Ascendancy will serve terms of three (3) months.

The election process shall consist of a nomination round, beginning one week before the inauguration will take place. The election will take place three days before the nomination. A member needs at least two nominations to have their name added to the ballot. In addition, members cannot nominate themselves, and cannot nominate more than two members.

If an Ascendant resigns their position, or are accused of not being fit to serve the League (in which case a sixty percent (60%) total alliance majority vote is needed to remove them from power), they will be nominated by and voted on by the entirety of the League, using the election process.

Section II – The Ministry

The members of the Ministry serve as heads to their respective departments. They are appointed by the Ascendancy and are required to be re-appointed after each election.

The members of the Ministry are as follows:

Commissioner – Head of the financial department of the League. They assist the Ascendancy with tech and trading deals.

Regent – Head of the war department of the League. They assist the Ascendancy with handling the defense of the alliance.

Emissary – Head of the foreign affairs department of the League. They assist the Ascendancy with international relations and maintaining positive ties abroad.

Vizier – Head of the communication department of the League and adviser in Ascendancy affairs. The Vizier is allowed to voice their opinions and give suggestions but not actually vote on alliance matters.

More Ministry positions may be created or undone as the Ascendancy sees fit to best head the League.

Article III – Amendments

To amend the Constitution, a proposal of the changed section of the document must be made and approved in a vote by at least 80% of the League.

Signed,

The Ascendancy,

Balthier

Its been six long months in LOUD, but every day in it has bee something amazing to say the very least, I've had fun helping form what I hope will someday become a alliance that when people here the name LOUD, they know who we are, and what we stand for, we like to raise the volume a bit more than most, and we try to treat our membership as if they are part of a cyber family, and our allies like our best of friends, we can have fun, but we always try to be as honorable as possible. We started out being formed by a mass merger between VAGUE, SOAP, The Renegade, and RSF, our color of choice was yellow at the time, of course not every one joined LOUD after the merger, some even thought we was doomed from the very start, but we never let that discourage us we kept on going no matter what, we had a bit of a rocky start but we soon got back on level ground once more, and from there we have had a few more hard times but nothing this group of friends could not over come together, and now our goal is to keep going up no matter what is thrown our way. LOUD now resides proudly on the Black sphere were we are part of a great bloc called NOIR. We currently hold only two MDP's with our good friends at RIA, and NOVA. We also hold ODP's with AID, R&R, BRIG, and FUCN, all of which we call friends.

I for one have enjoyed helping lead this wonderful alliance for as long as I have, and have enjoyed doing so every second of it, I have the honor of leading, and standing next to some of who I think is some of CN's greatest. Along with my time in LOUD I've made alot of new friends, and seen some good one's go from CN. I've been playing CN over two years now and have been in goverment in almost every alliance I have been in, but now I think its time I give it all a break, I have decided to retire from goverment for a while, to allow some new faces a chance to be as LOUD as they can be, I'm not leaving CN, or LOUD, but odds are you will be seeing alot less of me around. I decided this sometime before elections even started that way every one would be prepared. So I look foward to taking a break a from CN to enjoy RL for a while, and seeing this alliance grow. I am most certain I am leaving LOUD in thhe most capable hands.

A extra thanks to all the members, and goverment of LOUD for allowing me to serve you all for as long as I have. Also a large thanks to all of our allies, and friends who has stuck by us through the hard times, and good times! Much :wub: to you all!

Remember to keep it LOUD without me!

Seriously.. STAGGY? Who the heck lets Staggy into government? He'll run it down I tell you! Nah, congrats to LOUD. Six months is a good record, here is to six months and more. Just make sure the rocking chair doesn't get filled up too soon.

Mia, what are you on about talking about The Brigade? :huh:

FOr some reason I thought I saw Brigade mentioned, whoops. Meeting Stagger there must've messed up my memory. Apologies about that. Congrats again to LOUD on six months.

EDIT: AHA!

We also hold ODP's with AID, R&R, BRIG, and FUCN, all of which we call friends.

I was commenting on one of the alliances I actually knew of their allies. So there!
