FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

[b]The Corporation announces major policy change and treaties[/b]

[i]OWRP, PLANET BOB – May 24, 2010[/i]

The Corporation declared its existence almost 10 months ago, and aimed to be a contributing member to our new home on yellow. We have long advocated for yellow, and continue to finding it to be a warm and welcoming place. Unfortunately, the Corporation now feels that the yellow sphere cannot be a viable long term economic plan, nor is it fiscally responsible to remain on the sphere. The Corporation wishes to make it clear that this has nothing to do with our neighbours on yellow. As mentioned, we find yellow warm and welcoming, and have made a great many friends on yellow. It was the hardest part of our decision to move off the sphere, and we hope that just because we will be on a different sphere does not mean that the friendships we forged will be extinguished.

As you may have guessed from the flag, or known from someone telling you, the Corporation could not be happier to be moving to the green sphere. We have already made a great many friends, and have known some of the people on the sphere for a long, long time.

We are thankful to the sphere for being so welcoming to us, and for giving us the opportunity to become a signatory for the United Jungle Accords.

[b]The United Jungle Accords[/b][/center]

[b]Preamble[/b]

We, the undersigned alliances, as members of the Green Trading Sphere, recognizing our mutual, natural, and undeniable duties to defend, preserve, and support our home and its people, do ordain and establish these Accords for a free and united team, as well as ensure the perpetual bonds of brotherhood between all Green nations and alliances.
edit First Accord - Commitments to the Green Team

* i. The undersigned alliances do agree to refrain from any and all aggressive actions towards one another. This includes the use of spies, both in game and out, against each other, as well as unwarranted sanctions from Senators. If any member state of an undersigned alliance is found in direct violation of this article, the quarrel between all affected parties is expected to be resolved by diplomatic means.
* ii. The undersigned alliances do agree to refrain from hindering any nation's or alliance's movement to and from the Green Team.
* iii. The undersigned alliances do agree to refrain from forcing any Green nation not under their own jurisdiction to cancel foreign aid or trade agreements.

[b]Second Accord - Senators and Sanctions[/b]

* i. Any nation residing on the Green Team may run for and obtain the position of Senator.
* ii. By obtaining the position of Senator, a nation automatically recognizes its inherent duty to abide by the terms of this Accord, whether it be officially affiliated or not.
* iii. Only one member per alliance may run for and obtain the position of Senator. If there should be more than one nation of the same alliance running for Senator, one nation must cease his or her campaign, and set his or her Senate Vote Option to No Votes Allowed.
* iv. Senators may only use sanctions on nations unaffiliated with these Accords that pose a severe nuclear threat to another alliance as a rogue nation.
* v. Should one of the undersigned alliances find that a Senator is abusing his or her powers, said alliance may initiate a vote between the collective signatories of these Accords to remove said senator. Each signatory receives one vote. Should the undersigned find the Senator in question guilty, by simple majority, said Senator is required to abdicate his position or, should the undersigned wish, be removed by force.

[b]Third Accord - Neutral Alliances[/b]

* i. Any alliance may, at any time, elect to sign these Accords as a neutral party. The neutrality of said alliance must be declared publicly prior to the admittance process outlined in the Fifth Accord, and said alliance must maintain their own Declaration of Neutrality.
* ii. The undersigned alliances do recognize that the intent of any neutral signatory is purely to enhance the economic unity of the Green Team.
* iii. Neutral signatories are exempt from the Team Sponsored Protectorates Accord, as well as voting on admissions to the Accords themselves.
* iv. Neutral signatories may choose to abstain from any vote, decision, announcement, or conflict stated in these Accords that might otherwise jeopardize their neutrality.
* v. Neutral signatories may run for and obtain a senator seat as long as doing so does not conflict with their respective Declarations of Neutrality, and as long as fulfilling the duties of Senator does not conflict with said declarations.

[b]Fourth Accord - Team Sponsored Protectorates[/b]

* i. Any alliances wishing to enter the team sponsored protectorate agreement must be a declared Green Team alliance, in part or in whole, and must submit a formal request to a signatory of this treaty or be invited by a current signatory. The admission of an alliance to the team sponsored protectorate agreement must be ratified in the form of a two-thirds majority vote by the undersigned.
* ii. The undersigned alliances to agree to mutual communication, economic practice, and civility between themselves and the protectorates, as well as mandatory, unilateral defense of said protectorates should they come under attack by a foreign power.

Alliances under the protectorate agreement

* iii. agree to adhere to all of the laws of these Accords.
* iv. recognize and respect both their sovereignty and political independence, as well as the undersigned alliances.
* v. understand that it is the duty of the protectors to help nurture and grow the protectorates, and therefore agree to open economic exchange and agree to consider advice from the undersigned alliances should it be offered.
* vi. understand that in the event one of their protectors comes under attack, they have the option to come to their assistance, but are not obligated to do so.

[b]Fifth Accord - Admission and Resignation[/b]

* i. Any alliance wishing to become a member of these Accords must be a declared Green Team alliance, in part or in whole, and must submit a formal request to a signatory of this treaty or be invited by a current signatory. A representative of a signatory alliance, after receiving the formal request, may request a vote for admission.
* ii. The admission of a new signatory into this agreement requires approval in the form of a two-thirds majority vote by the undersigned. In the event a new alliance is granted admission, they must sign, agree to, and abide by these United Jungle Accords.
* iii. An undersigned alliance may, at any time, choose to withdraw from these Accords in a peaceful and cordial manner.
* iv. This treaty may be dissolved through a vote of unanimous consent by all signatory alliances of this treaty.

[b]Sixth Accord - On the Past[/b]

* i. All signatories of this treaty fully recognize the need to forever remember and reflect on all past horrors that have occurred on the sphere, in a universal commitment to prevent any of these atrocities from reoccurring. Furthermore, the undersigned do agree to forever embody the loving spirit that created the United Green Legislation, the Sphere of Win Treaty, and these Accords in everything they do.
* ii. This Accord is henceforth forever enacted and acknowledged by all signatories unto eternity, even with the resignation from, the amending of, or the termination of these Accords.

Welcome to Green, Corporation. Given your early successes, I expect that you will help build the tradition of our sphere, and I know that you value the sacrifices and bloodshed that went into the creation and reformation of the UJA.
