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

Section II:

Should a signatory or any other nation fall and there is no European power to assume protection of the territory it will become part of the Central European Protectorate.

Section II:

Any member with a reasonable portion of their land on the European continent in addition to their capital are allowed to apply for Membership. For Partial Applications all nations will get a vote where founding members can veto.

Article VI: Punishments

Section I:

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.

We are not...entirely sure if France should be admitted into the CEU if they want to reserve the right to not defend their allies...This would turn the CEU into an ODP for them, instead of a mutual defense pact.

We will Abstain for the time being, until others bring good arguments for admitting the french into the CEU.

As per Section IV of Article III of the Charter reading as follows:

The Central European Union will not allow non-European influences in Europe after the signing of this agreement. Any nation not from the European Continent founding a colony in Europe will be considered in a war with all Full and Founding Members. Unprotected territory in Europe will become part of the Central European Protectorate until a stable local Government is founded.

The Tahoe Republic would like the CEU to pass a resolution stating they will not tolerate their member nations to hold colonies in North America or South America.

#6: Yes

#7: Abstain. They may rule over Belarus, but the bulk of their territory is in the Pacific and eastern Asia. Additionally, their capital is Brisbane, in Australia. We'd estimate less than 20% of their territory being in Europe, which, in our opinion, is not enough for partial membership.

#8: Yes

No to Resolution 4 (unless reservations are withdrawn)

Yes to Resolution 6

No to resolution 7, nations without a capital in Europe need-not apply, if the commonwealth felt it prudent to move their capital to the European continent, then we would resoundingly vote Yes. However, as of now, foreign influence--no matter how close to home--is not valid in my mind.

Yes to Resolution 8.

Regarding the position on vote 7 of Bavaria we request you to change your mind, while it is true the Hanseatic Commonwealth doesn't have the bulk of it's land on Europe it originally was forced to abandon Europe due to war and has an European basis in it's culture. While this normally would not suffice it also is the main party making it possible most of us gained our Independence as such we request you to grant them an exception.

ADI and RoM are requested to submit their signatures

The other nations have provided sufficient evidence that we indeed are not European centered anymore, culture or not. It is not fair for other European nations to deal with a colonial power such as ourselves. Therefore, in good nature we will be withdrawing our application, however we do with for friendly relations with European nations in the future and we hope that our distance from the continent will not get in the way.

#9: Yes.

Regarding Croatia's argument: While your argument is valid, this could send a precedent. Exceptions to rules often end badly.

Additionally, with Prussia agreeing with us, we thus would change our vote to 'No'.

But as the Hansa withdrew their application, this is no longer in need of arguing.
