Drakoria and Groenlandia Present

Several years ago, before the Collapse of Nordland, the nations of Groenlandia and Drakoria met to discuss an economic plan. The plan was to build a giant canal from the Caspian Sea to the Black Sea to allow Groenlandia and any nations that founded later on the ability to begin sea trade via the Black Sea. The canal would stretch through Drakoria, north of the Caucasus Mountains, and end in the Azov Sea, just outside of the CSSR, then a province of Nordland. With Nordland's approval of the construction through their territory, the project began.

Now, the governments of Drakoria and Groenlandia would like to unveil the completed Trans-Caucasus Canal.

The Trans-Caucasus Canal operation will be funded by tolls paid by the companies in charge of the shipment. The tolls will equal 10% of the monetary value of the cargo. Government-owned ships will pass for free.

So if a nation whose government owns all of the economy attempts to enter/use your canal, they would pass through freely? Could a government not, in theory, claim ownership of a company so as to say that these ships must pass freely through your canal without toll? How does this work?

It is implied in that statement that this rule only applies to the CSSR, Drakoria, and Groenlandia.

No, it is not, however I thank you for clearing that up.

I apologize. We should have worded it better.

Why you did not simply build a Volga-Don canal, I shall never know. Congratulations are certainly in order, and I hope that you will gain immense riches from this venture.

A Volga-Don Canal is too small to be used for military use and large cargoes. Ever tried putting a battleship or aircraft carrier in 4 meters of water in a space 17 meters wide? Not the easiest task.

Indeed.

We congratulate your fine nations on this accomplishment.

We are proud to announce this feat alongside our allies. This canal will both generate revenue and increase the economy in the Caucasus. In addition, half a mile on each side of the canal is jointly controlled by the FRG, Drakoria, and the CSSR, and the Trans-Caucasus Canal Authority has been set up to administer and police the canal.

In the FRG government, the Ministry of Transportation, newly created from various committees of the Ministry of the Homeland, contains the newly created Office of Trans-Caucasus Canal Affairs.

**Classified**

Minister of Foreign Affairs Steingrímur Vilhjálmsson calls the office of the Drakorian foreign affairs head.

"Hello, I would like to update our treaty. Please look through through the changes and confirm your approval, should you find them acceptable:

Caucasus Unity Treaty

Preamble

The Republic of Drakoria and the Federal Republic of Grøenlandia, hereon out known as Drakoria and Grøenlandia respectively, hereby enter into a pact of defense.

Article I. Non Aggression

The undersigned nations hereby agree to non-aggression. Neither nation will engage in military or undercover operations against the other.

Article II. Free Trade

Drakoria and Grøenlandia hereby agree to free trade between their nations. All goods traded between the two nations are exempt from tariffs.

Article III. Mutual Defense

The undersigned nations agree to enter into mutual defense. An attack upon one signatory will be considered an attack upon both, and will be treated as such.

Article IV. Treaty Chains

Should one signatory be attacked for honoring a non-related treaty, defense becomes optional. Both signatories recognize that defense in this case is no longer required, but it is still encouraged.

Article V. Optional Aggression

In the event that one signatory engages in an offensive war against a third party, the other signatory is given the option to attack with them. While not required, it is encouraged.

Article VI. Cancellation

This treaty can be terminated by either signatory at any time, provided that the other nation is made aware of the cancellation 48 hours in advance. This treaty is considered to still be in effect until the 48 hours is up. Should Grøenlandia cease to exist, all of its land holdings in the central Asia area will revert to Drakorian control.

Article VII. Trans-Caucasus Canal

The signatories of this treaty and the CSSR will have joint control of the canal. Should one of the three aforementioned nations cease to exist, control reverts to the remaining nations. All revenue and debt, policing, and administration of the canal must be split equally among the controlling nations, preferably through the creation of a Trans-Caucasus Canal Authority.

Signed for the Republic of Drakoria,

Jason R. Drake, President

Henry J Fredericks, Vice President

Second Senate of Drakoria

Signed for the Federal Republic of Grøenlandia,

Forseti Ty Eyvindsson

Forsætisráðherra Ísólfur Ármannsson

Official Approval from the Senatus
