The Republic of Aquisgrana (RoA) was a blue team alliance that was established in June 2009. RoA is committed to fast growth through the practices of aggressive aiding and tech dealing. On the whole, the alliance has made a strong devotion to democracy and strives for all members to have an equal voice. The alliance is currently expanding its foreign ties, recently joining the MADP bloc AZTEC.
RoA was formed largely by former members of The German Empire, who were searching for a new beginning. Six current ministers and three former ministers of the German Empire set out on their own to establish RoA with several new ideals in mind. These tenets were established to shape RoA now, and in the future. with these ideals in mind, RoA signed a protectorate agreement with Nueva Vida, cementing hopes for a bright future.
Growth was furthered when, on September 7, 2009, the Republic of Aquisgrana merged with Monolith and through continued recruitment RoA reached 500,000 nation strength in late October.
On June 14, 2010 Republic of Aquisgrana finished its long process of the constitution amendment. Among many minor changes and fixing mistakes in the constitution, the most important decision was to abolish the Concilium Civitatis. The legislature of the Republic of Aquisgrana will from now on include two institutions instead of three- Concilium Ministrorum and Conclavis Populi.
The Eight TenetsEdit
The Republic of Aquisgrana is guided by eight core principles that were envisioned by its founders after they left the German Empire. The tenets are as follows:
- Establish a proactive Foreign Affairs department
- Denounce the establishment of untenable protectorates
- Trust, befriend, and assist all allies of the Republic
- Eradicate inactivity from the alliance base
- Recognize that an elite economic sector is crucial for alliance growth
- Ensure that no sole member has too much power
- Create an active and working judicial system
- Guarantee an active community and strong education for all citizens
- Main article: Charter of the Republic of Aquisgrana
The Charter, the most important document within the Republic of Aquisgrana, provides the legal foundations for the alliance's legal system, government, members and military. The Charter establishes the government and declares the sovereignty of the Republic. It also lays the foundations for the democratic government of the Republic, as well as the Minister's Council.
