Pax Americana

The ideals and goals set forth at the founding of the Empire stand true to this day. The peoples of South America expect strong men and women to lead them into an important place in the world. The Holy American Empire sets forth this doctrine explaining its' stance on foreign influence on South America.

- All continental territory south of Imperial Mexico is henceforth protected and labeled as an Imperial Protectorate. Should any nation on said territory dissolve due to any circumstance, the territory as a whole is automatically absorbed as a state into the Empire. Partitioning in the event of large states is not out of the question.

- A tariff not less than 5% on all imported goods is to be enacted to prevent unfair practices by external influences. Exceptions to this can be applied by contacting Imperial representatives. Members of the Diamond Treaty are not affected by this proclamation.

- Any ship passing through Imperial waters may be subject to board-and-search operations. Should any contraband items or people be found, said vessel will be impounded until such time as the nation responsible will publicly apologize and pay a slight fee for violating Imperial Waters. Multiple offenses will result in access to Imperial waterways being revoked.

- The Imperial Credit is the only accepted form of currency within the Empire, please change your monetary supplies at Imperial Airports.

- The Holy American Empire recognizes itself as hegemon of South America and will act accordingly to preserve its' role as a voice on the world-stage. This is not limited to maintaining fortifications within the Empire.

**Classified subsection**

Balmoral Decree

Pursuant to the goals outlined in the public portion of Pax Americana, the Balmoral decree outlines measures to be taken in accordance with defense of the nation against all foreign threats. This document concludes that with the dissolution of Curristan, no significant entity exists with the means to confront the Empire on its' home territory without first fighting through the Imperial Fleet. As such military factories dedicated to the production of land-oriented defenses are to be reassigned towards ocean-based obstacles.

The fleet is as such recognized as the main force which will defend the liberties and rights of the people. As such the Balmoral Decree announces a policy of opening and maintaining naval bases across the coast and if possible in the midst of oceans; such as the Azores and Bermuda.

Every measure is to be taken in keeping the fleet and its' supporting defenses up to date, as well as informed about the current political situation in the world. Defenses to be constructed are as follows;

- Torpedo Launchers

- Decoy systems

- Acoustic detection dishes

- Additional coastal defenses

- Nodal reaction forces

- Air defense net

The Domination Corollary

The nations of Europe have made it abundantly clear that they will not tolerate any foreign presence within their continent be it legal or otherwise; as such the Holy American Empire shall take steps to ensure much the same. Of course, the exception is that all legal transfers of land will be honored as such regardless of what becomes built upon the land. If the matter concerns the national security of the Empire, steps will be taken to contact and negotiate with all involved parties.

All nations given their land to exist by the Empire are bound to the Empire. Should that nation fall it will be reincorporated into Holy American Empire territory. Any foreign power attempting to assume control over a nation which owes its' existence to the Empire will be promptly dealt with; as attempting to annex portions of the Empire is an act of war.

Military force is to be used as a last resort only after all attempts at rectifying the problem short of warfare have failed. In addition; any and all civilians present upon the disputed land will be politely informed and given 48 hours to vacate the area. After such time; the Holy American Empire will not hold itself responsible for any and all civilian casualties in the area.

Additionally; civilians within lands conquered by the Holy American Empire will be granted the same rights as it's citizens only after armed insurrection ends; either through force-of-arms or willing dissolution. Commerce between conquered zones and the outside world with the exception of the Holy American Empire will be halted for the duration of any such conflict the zone was obtained in.

The Holy American Empire is willing to host any and all diplomatic meetings within its' capital city, Foundation. Peace and Prosperity are foremost in our goals. Additionally, the Holy American Empire will work with other American nations to ensure economic trade and security between all members seeking to join the Imperial Economic Prosperity Zone.

[b][size="4"]The Hegemony Corollary
[/size][/b]

All nations beneath the Pax are to prevent any and all cults from forming within their borders, with the exceptions of approved cults as outlined by the Imperial Constitution. All nations not complying are liable to have their charters revoked and land reclaimed as per the Imperial Right Doctrine.

Nations outside the Pax harboring dangerous cults are to be taxed an additional tariff of 50% on all goods being imported from said nations. Additionally, canal access and sailing rights across the Southern Passage are liable to be given additional costs in addition to lowest priority.

Nations harboring dangerous cults are also likely to have any and all treaties with the Empire re-examined in the light of extremists being allowed to flourish beyond control within their borders. Diplomatic recognition may have to be reconsidered in the light of a theological terrorist-run state.

[b]OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE[/b]

"We applaud our ally in the Holy American Empire on this, though we cannot help but voice some concerns and need of clarification on some matters."

[quote]- A tariff not less than 5% on all imported goods is to be enacted to prevent unfair practices by external influences. Exceptions to this can be applied by contacting Imperial representatives. Members of the Diamond Treaty are not affected by this proclamation.[/quote]

"Does the tariff apply to FSA merchant ships accessing Imperial waters? It seems a bit unfair that members of the Diamond Treaty are exempt from the tariff, but we aren't - despite the fact we, in fact, hold a treaty(ies) with you."

[quote]- Any ship passing through Imperial waters may be subject to board-and-search operations. Should any contraband items or people be found, said vessel will be impounded until such time as the nation responsible will publicly apologize and pay a slight fee for violating Imperial Waters. Multiple offenses will result in access to Imperial waterways being revoked.[/quote]

"We do not aim to challenge your sovereignty and jurisdiction, but are FSA vessels (both military and civilian) subject to such orders? And how do you define as 'contraband', exactly? Weapons or others? We assure you that our civilian vessels do not carry weapons or illegal items onboard, though our military ships do, most of the time, and may need to access the Imperial Canal in times of peace and war."

[quote]- The Imperial Credit is the only accepted form of currency within the Empire, please change your monetary supplies at Imperial Airports.

"Fair enough. We will issue a public notice to our citizens and/or businesspeople visiting the HAE to bring enough money to exchange for Imperial credits. What is the exchange rate?"

OOC: Can I have Recife? :P

We of Himynamistan hope for continued discussions and open conversations with the rulers of the HAE to maintain strong relations between our nations. We trust in the HAE's ability to negotiate solutions without resort to sanctions against our nation.
