If there is still a draw after the second election, then Carinthe may appoint a Chancellor. (see article 7 section 3).
ARTICLE 5. WAR AND DEFENSE.Edit
Section I. Rogue attackers.Edit
If an alliance member or members are attacked without provocation, they may counter attack with any resources at its disposal excepting nuclear weapons. However it may be prudent to merely bolster defending forces and retaliate with cruise missiles alone.
HOWEVER, if the attacker is displaying Alliance insignia, that alliance must first be contacted by the Foreign minister or designated diplomats to ensure that the member is either falsely claiming membership or not acting at the behest of the alliance.
Make a thread in the forum describing how this war came about. Leave out no detail. Include links to your nation and the assaulting nation(s). The minister of defense will plan and organize an appropriate counterattack while the foreign minister will first contact the aggressor and attempt to resolve the matter peacefully.
If peace is declared right after the enemy is sent the message, accept it.
If the enemy attacks you again after they receive the message and then declares peace, you are not obligated to accept but may if you just want to get out of war. If you are attacked again after the foreign minister has sent the warning message, report it in your thread. At this point the defence minister will initiate counter attacks against the enemy as planned.
Section II. Inter-Alliance WarsEdit
If TYWA is attacked by another alliance:
All actions should be coordinated through the government and a peaceful solution sought by diplomatic representation at the highest level (the Foreign minister or chancellor) while the defense minister prepares an action plan for the defense of the alliance in case diplomacy fails.
Section III. Non-AggressionEdit
TYWA renounces offensive war as a means of obtaining land, resources or reputation. However, it reserves its right to defend itself from all outside aggression.
Section IV. Declarations of WarEdit
In all other instances where military action is possible and not covered by articles I and II above a general vote shall be taken of all members. This vote will be binding if 75% or more member vote for a particular course of action. The chancellor may exercise the power of veto over this vote, however does so at the risk of the general membership bringing a vote of no confidence in the chancellor (see article 7 section 1)
ARTICLE 6. THE ALLIANCE AID PROGRAM.Edit
Note: All appeals for funds should be directed to the Finance Minister.
Section I. Start-out Grants. Edit
The alliance shall provide aid to all new nations that become members. By ‘new’ it is meant that any nation newly joining the alliance under 1 month of age is eligible for an aid request. Members with a daily income of over 10,000 are encouraged to give aid where they can. A target of 10,000 per new member should be sought.
Section II. Development Loans.Edit
Established nations can appeal for money to complete stated projects. It is informally expected that those who borrow will one day lend if so called to do.
Section III. Redevelopment Aid.Edit
Funds are available for nations ravaged by the collateral damages of war.
Section IV. RecordsEdit
The finance ministry should keep a record of aid to ensure that the burden of giving and benefits of receiving are equitably distributed.
ARTICLE 7. INDIVIDUAL ALLIANCE LAWS.Edit
Section I. Extraordinary General Meetings.Edit
Members may call together a council to vote against the decisions of their elected government if it is deemed that the government has acted against the best interests of the Alliance. This "Extraordinary General Meeting" or "EGM" must vote with a super-majority of 75% to override council decisions. It may also be used to call votes of no confidence in the government and individual government members. A 75% percent vote against a minister will force a resignation and subsequent election to fill the position.
Section II. Team Colors.Edit
Membership is available to any team. Although the majority of our members are "green" the TYWA is presently a "colorless" alliance. If at any future stage a member wishes to initiate an all-Alliance move to a particular team color this may be done through the 75% voting mechanism, however the vote shall run for no less than 1 week.
Section III. Monarchy.Edit
TYW is historically a monarchy and as such the nation of Carinthe, as ancient founder of the ideals and forums of TYW, holds the right to assume the role of Monarch with powers akin to the chancellor. If the chancellor becomes incapacitated or voted out of office by EGM, Carinthe may assume the role of sole alliance leader and head of government until a new chancellor is elected. Carinthe may choose not to assume this position, however it is always to remain open to her.
Section IV. AmendmentsEdit
The government may pass new laws and amendments after a 75% vote of the membership and add them to the charter.
