The Smurf Village was founded in late February of this year and signed a protectorate with Nueva Vida although being a new alliance it was experiencing rapid growth both in Nation Strength and in recognition amongst other alliances. After a short period of time the protectorate with Nueva Vida was cancelled due to a lack of communications. On the same day TSV was admitted into the Peace and Love Train.
The Smurf Village charterEdit
Article I PreambleEdit
We of The Smurf Village gather together under this AA in order to form a more smurfy union. The nations of The Smurf Village (henceforth referred to as TSV) gather under this AA in order to find a stable home on the Blue sphere that will provide a close knit-environment and individual national prosperity.
Article II AdmissionEdit
Any nation that wishes to may join The Smurf Village unless any smurf in good standing objects to their joining. If a smurf in good standing objects of their joining the matter will be taken to the Smurf Council. While we welcome all nations in TSV, applicant nations will not be approved if at war. Once admitted all nations under 5000 nation strength must go through the academy program unless excused from it by a member of the Smurf Council.
Article III MembershipEdit
The levels of membership are as follows: Academy Smurf: This is the time for new members to learn about us. Academy Smurfs are approved applicants and will have the least amount of forum access. This is a time of training about The Smurf Village and about the game and a time for the Academy Smurfs to prove themselves as active Villagers. Member Smurf: This is the next level of membership. Member Smurfs engage in community discussions and programs and help to guide Academy Smurfs. Member Smurfs are encouraged to work in various governmental offices and on official events.
Assistant Smurf: These are Villagers who have proven they are active, valuable members of the community and are ready to step into a leadership role in the alliance. Assistant Smurfs work on nation growth, guiding newer members, becoming military commanders in times of alliance wars, and monitoring and advising the alliance leadership.
Government Smurf: The Government Smurfs are comprised of four elected Smurfs and the Papa Smurf. The Elected Smurfs manage their separate ministries and act as advisers to the Papa Smurf.
