c. If signatories feel a nation in the treaty no longer has the best interests of others in mind and does not live up to the ideals presented in the preamble, the signatories may expel the unfavorable nation with a supermajority (2/3) vote.

VII. Amendments

Any part of this treaty can be amended with a supermajority vote besides Article II.

VIII. Termination

No nation shall be forced to stay in this treaty against their will. Thus, any nation may leave this pact so long as they give a five day notice before withdrawal. The nation may apply to rejoin at any time.

These nations are not really located in the Arctic however no requirements are necessary for membership or observer status. Therefore, the FRG would approve both as observers.

**Private to CAN Members**

New England may attain observer status however we will not support any bid from them for membership.

Arctica requests observer status in the CAN on the basis of:

  • It holds territory within the Arctic Circle
  • It has other interests (mainly shipping lanes) within the Arctic Circle
  • It has a long history of nonaggression and international cooperation

The Shinsei Shikkoku Teikoku implies if observer status in this organization is possible, considering our general neutrality and position in the Antarctic continent.

"Antarctica is a bit far south to be in the Arctic. And by a bit far south, I mean on the other side of the world."
