Another alliance? And their name is what? :rolleyes:


Recommended Posts

Yes, it's another Declaration of Existence, no it's not just another alliance.

Our goal is basically to create a small, self sustainable community within Planet Bob, made up of people who share the same vision, but with none of the external politics to influence our survival. As the charter below says, a "small utopia" where people can just relax, have a beer and not have to do anything if they don't want to. We also hope to achieve something along the lines of non-treatied alignment, we firmly believe that one does not need to sign a bit of paper to be friends or help one another when in need.

Nirvana will be a multi-coloured sphere alliance so new members don't have to lose existing trades and deals. Our presence as an alliance will be minimal to non-existent on these forums, but should anyone need us, we can be found at the following:

IRC: #nirvana on Coldfront.net

And now, we are honoured to present to you our charter and protectorate agreement with Vanguard:

Untitle1.jpg

Nirvāṇa

“Through peace of mind, we will achieve eternal happiness.”

Preamble

We, the members of Nirvāṇa come together in lieu of a common vision, a vision of creating a small utopia within the confines of this planet; free from poisons of the mind such as Greed, Hatred and Ignorance. This document will serve as the highest system of laws, which all members, including the Disciples must abide by.

Membership

Nations wishing to join:

* Must not be affiliated to any other alliance;

* Must agree to the commandments put forth by this document;

* Must have their application sponsored by an existing member.

Guidance

1. The Conclave of Disciples:

* The realm of Nirvāṇa is led by a Conclave of three member nations, known as Disciples, each serving for life or until they appoint a replacement. The Conclave is charged with directing the internal and external operations of the alliance and possesses all the powers necessary for such, unless explicitly reserved elsewhere in this charter. The Conclave shall be considered the final arbiter in any dispute. Each Disciple may speak on behalf of the alliance and is responsible for negotiating and formally proposing treaties.

* The Conclave is the sole assembly with the authority to declare war and authorize the use of military might against any foreign power(s).

2. Elder Monks

* Elder Monks are officials appointed by the Conclave.

* Elder Monks are responsible for providing the Conclave with day to day assistance in the running of the alliance.

* Each Elder Monk will serve in a specific area of expertise, such as foreign affairs, internal affairs and alliance defence.

* Each Elder Monk may employ Monks to help them in their duties.

Commandments of the Noble Path

1. No member is to attack or spy on any nation without a Disciples approval unless said nation is apart of an alliance that the realm of Nirvāṇa is officially at war with.

2. No member is to send foreign aid to enemies of the realm.

3. No member may spy on any alliance or pass classified information to any alliance or third party.

4. No member shall negotiate about official matters with another without permission from a member of the Conclave or an Elder Monk.

5. Members are required to remain respectful to everyone at all times.

Follower Rights

* You have the right to use your nation's resources in any way you choose.

* You have the right to request military and/or financial assistance if you are attacked.

* You have the right to defend your nation by any means when attacked.

* You have the absolute right to not be threatened to zero infrastructure unless you commit treason.

* You have the right to speak out against leadership, suggest or request change, or voice a dissenting opinion with in our official forums without fear of punishment. (Although, should said speech rise to the level of harassment, you may well be punished.)

* You have the right to leave the alliance at any time, providing you notify a member of the Conclave.

Commandments and Rights

To ensure there is never a conflict between a members rights and the commandments set forth by this document, commandments shall always over-rule rights.

Amendments

Changes can be made to this document with a majority approval from the Conclave.

Touch Nirvana and we'll nuke your face :v: Unless said touching is done in a loving manner.

The Lithium Covenant

Preamble

The following treaty shall create an agreement whereby Vanguard agrees to extend its protection over the new and burgeoning alliance of Nirvana. This treaty is a beginning of a friendship between the two alliances which will continue to grow. Both alliances enter into this agreement willingly and of their own free, sovereign will.

Article I - Sovereignty

Vanguard shall not attempt to subvert the sovereignty of Nirvana; as such, it shall not attempt to impose its will on the government of Nirvana. Vanguard reserves the right to advise Nirvana on all issues of alliance management, both internal and external. Nirvana agrees to keep Vanguard informed of any major foreign affairs issues, and will seek counsel prior to signing any agreements. This arrangement is not intended to relegate Nirvana to a vassal of Vanguard; it is intended to keep the two alliances on the same page, and to bring them closer together.

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 VI.

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 - Protection

Vanguard agrees to protect Nirvana from foreign aggression. In exchange for this protection, Nirvana agrees to behave in a respectable manner and keep good levels of communication with Vanguard. This protection shall last until both signatories are satisfied that the protection is no longer required, or until the cancellation procedure set out in Article VI is enacted.

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.

Signed,

For Vanguard,

We also hope to achieve something along the lines of non-treatied alignment, we firmly believe that one does not need to sign a bit of paper to be friends or help one another when in need.

That's pretty cool. Oh, and congratulations on The Lithium Covenant.

UME hereby declares war on Nirvana for the bolded parts.
