"Today, a new day for Europe has begun"

Rallies across Europe cheered as televisions in the continent flickered onto an image of the leaders of the three central powers shaking hands. The three nations had finally agreed on a union that would bring stability and pride to the region and their people.

Headquartered in Berlin (at the newly built Europa Plaza), the Central European Union would be established as an economic and military pact with the primary goal of bringing stability to the region and to the continent as a whole.

Economic headquarters will lay in Vienna, and Military Headquarters will be placed in Bavaria.

New nations forming from the Protectorate will NOT be forced to join the Central European Union.

"Wales is dissapointed with this announcement to be brutally honest. Doesn't creating a CENTRAL European Union only serve to divide the continent futher?" ~ His Majesty, King Bryn I of Wales.

The Central European Union serves to allow all of Europe, as the majority of my own nation resides in the East and we have multiple applications where the same thing is the case. The Central is just in name of the position of the European continent on the world namely historically the Center of the world and close to the equator.

To be honest, we are not amused that decisions regarding Europe and European people were made without representing a wide variety of European nations, including ourselves. We’re not starting off on a good note when you make your neighbors feel alienated like this.

All they have done is divide up a protectorate they controlled?

Partial membership.

OOC: reservations in this sense

IC:

France would like to submit an application to join the Central European Union as a Full Member. We wish to sign the treaty noting that, with reference to Article III Section II, France reserves the right to withhold participation in common defense beyond Europe.

This would be possible, we will start voting as soon as possible.

If we may be so bold to ask of this.

The Hanseatic Commonwealth, while a Pacific nation, holds tracts of land in Europe, notably the province of Valkurheim in Belarus. In addition, we believe that our nation was instrumental in the creation of what now exists as the Central European Union. While we are treated with many of Europe's countries already through various other treaties we would like to continue our dream of creating a Europe that is not only stable now, but will remain stable and diverse for ages to come.

As such, the Commonwealth would like to apply for at least economic membership in the CEU and possibly in time, upgrade our membership to the Mutual Defense stated in your constitution.

We will bring up the request in the meeting and we personally do not object.

The Republic of Mariehamm applies for membership.

Your application will be processed, we assume Full Membership?
