I sincerely hope you will choose to join our alliance. The benefits of such a commitment are substantial, and you won't regret it.
Here is the charter of our coalition. It forms the heart and soul of our alliance and it's everything we stand for. Read it carefully before applying, it'll help you better understand what we're all about and make it easier for you to participate in the day-to-day activities. :J
This document is hereby created to protect the rights and freedoms of the sovereign nations of the North Atlantic Defense Coalition. These member nations agree that an armed attack against one or more of them shall be considered an attack against them all. Consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self-defense, will assist the member or members so attacked by taking whatever action as is deemed necessary, including the use of armed force, to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area.
II. Admission & Expulsion
Any nation, given that they are not currently at war with any alliance that is either neutral or friendly to the NADC or involved in any sort of transgression with the allies of the NADC, may join the Coalition. All applying member nations must sign this Charter, thus committing to uphold and protect the ideals it represents.
A member nation may be expelled from the NADC if that nation commits an action that violates or severely offends the principles of the Charter. The Secretary General may expel any member for said offenses on his or her own authority, although if the reasons behind such an action are found to be insufficient, it is considered justifiable grounds for the Advisory Council to call a veto and bring the issue before the Assembly.
III. Political Structure
___IIIa. Ruling Bodies
The NADC consists of the following bodies of general authority:
A Secretary General (SECGEN), responsible for the NADC's public relations, general alliance management, maintaining all things pertaining to the workings of the Assembly, and the protection of its interests abroad. The SECGEN has the power to grant all other governmental positions as required with the exception of department-specific deputies. All other officials are to report to the SECGEN. All powers not expressively given by this charter to any other position or body are given to the SECGEN to be used for the benefit of the membership.
The Assembly, consisting of all Coalition members. The Assembly can alter the NADC Charter with a vote of at least 80% in favor. The Assembly may also hold a vote of no confidence on any minister, which must receive a 2/3-majority vote in order to pass. The affected minister must immediately step down, and the Secretary General must appoint a replacement. The Assembly is the only legislative body within the North Atlantic Defense Coalition and all legislative proposals and Law amendments must be passed before the Assembly and approved by a Simple Majority (50% +1). No Law may override the rules and boundaries of the NADC Charter.
The Senate, consisting of 6 elected individuals. The Senate acts as a floodgate for the Assembly to ensure that faulty proposals aren't rushed into law. Typically, the Internal Affairs Minister is the Chairperson of the Senate (thus becoming the 7th member) unless he / she wishes to outsource it. The Chairperson simply keeps the Senate moving and holds no additional power. The Senate votes only on those proposals which have already passed the Assembly. If the Senate votes down such a proposal, it is sent back to the Assembly. If the result is the same, the proposal is passed regardless of the Senate. The Senate has the ability to veto against decisions of the Secretary General, at which point the decision on the matter would proceed to the Assembly for a vote, and upon approval would immediately take into effect regardless of the Senate. To enact a veto, there must be a minimum of 2/3rds support within the Senate.
The Arbitrational Court, consisting of 4 elected Jury members, two appointed Arbitrators, and one appointed Chief Arbitrator. The Court is a mediating body that helps to solve disputes between the membership and the NADC Government. The Jury is ultimately responsible for delivering a verdict on whether the NADC Government is in the wrong or in the right of the accused act. The Chief Arbitrator then delivers the consequences of that verdict. The Arbitrators are closely involved with the judiciary process. They will also be assisting in the management and monitoring of correctly setting up and enforcing the administrative process of managing the Court.
___IIIb. Management Bodies
The NADC consists of the following bodies of specific authority:
An Internal Affairs Department, managed by the Internal Affairs Minister who is responsible for overseeing the general administration of the alliance. The Minister of Internal Affairs holds an exceptional duty, of cooperating closely with the Secretary General regarding inter-alliance management. The Internal Affairs Minister will have more responsibilities than power, and those responsibilities will be outlined and updated by the Secretary General. The Internal Affairs Minister is also the only official spokesperson of the Secretary General, and may speak on his behalf – although the SECGEN may always override any of the statements made by the IAM if this is considered necessary. In times of long-term absence of the SECGEN, the IAM will be the only possible and temporary replacement of the SECGEN. For this to happen, the SECGEN must be absent for the minimum of 5 consecutive days, and this must be approved by a simple majority of Cabinet Members.
A Foreign Affairs Department, managed by the Foreign Affairs Minister who is responsible for overseeing the general running of the ambassadors and embassies as well as general foreign relations. He or she has the power to appoint new ambassadors (although the SECGEN may overrule these) as well as to remove others from power. He or she also has the option to appoint a Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister who would function under the authority of the Foreign Affairs Minister in his or her absence, or when immediate action is required and the minister is not present. Any other action can only be taken with direct permission from the Foreign Affairs Minister.
The Foreign Affairs Minister may wish to appoint a Press Secretary as the official spokesperson for the NADC. The Assembly must approve this appointment by a simple majority. The Secretary General may veto the nomination, but only if the nominee was approved by an Assembly vote of less than 80% in favor. The Press Secretary is responsible for ensuring consistency and clarity in official communications. The Press Secretary may issue press releases such as announcements or news bulletins on behalf of the NADC; however, he or she does not have the power to make independent statements on policies or positions of the alliance beyond those officially stated in the NADC Charter, its supporting documents, or Assembly votes. The SECGEN shall approve all statements of policy not already covered in said documents prior to release by the Press Secretary.
A Defense Department, managed by the Military Operations Commander who is responsible for the coordination of retaliatory attacks against aggressor nations/alliances or of preemptive strikes against potential threats to the security of the NADC and its members. He or she also has the option to appoint a Deputy Military Commander who would function under the authority of the MOC in his or her absence, or when immediate action is required and the MOC is not present. Any other action can only be taken with direct permission from the Military Operations Commander.
A Financial Department, managed by the Finance Minister who is responsible for all trade, aid, and other finance related issues. This includes providing trade partners and aid to new alliance members in need, giving advice concerning resources, and managing the distribution of NADC funds to member nations who request them in times of peace and war.
The Finance Minister automatically serves as the Bank President unless the minister chooses to outsource this position to a different member by means of appointment (if this is the case, the Assembly may call a vote of no-confidence on the nominee and remove him from power by a 2/3 majority vote). The Bank President organizes and maintains the NADC Federal Bank system. The Bank President manages member applications to the Federal Bank, the appointment and dismissal of Bankers (member nations who function as banks to be aided by several bank members, and whose nominations may be vetoed by a unanimous decision by the other NADC officials), and the distribution of bank funds to Bank members.
Elections will be held for the position of Secretary General, for the Senate, and for the Arbitrational Court every 2 months with no maximum term limit for the SECGEN. The Military Operations Commander, Foreign Affairs Minister, and Finance Minister are all appointed by the Secretary General immediately after the election, and they in turn appoint their respective deputies. Someone in any one of these positions may serve as many times as they are appointed. See Article IIIa for the Assembly's power over these appointments.
V. Financial Aid
The Federal Bank of the NADC is fully responsible for the provision of elementary aid such as Starter Aid and Military Aid to all members of the alliance. All other types of Finance that are non-elementary require Bank Membership to be applicable. These types of finance are available upon request in the Federal Bank Forum. For the provision of Elementary Aid, the Minister of Finance must be contacted personally.
VI. Military Action
If war is declared on a NADC member nation, that nation must immediately inform the Military Operations Commander or his or her Deputy so that the MOC can set up a Rogue Response Effort. All financial, diplomatic, and military coordination will take place in that thread, and orders will be given directly by the MOC or his or her Deputy. The suffering nation may not respond militarily unless ordered to do so by the MOC him/herself or his or her Deputy. If the original aggressor makes a peace offer, which is then approved by the MOC or his or her Deputy, all NADC members currently involved in the war must accept it. Nuclear weapons may only be used with direct permission from the Military Operations Commander and SECGEN or in response to a nuclear attack. In the case of the Military Operations Commander's extended absence, the Secretary General alone must approve the use of nuclear weapons in his stead.
If a member is morally opposed to a declaration of offensive action against another alliance and has voted against that action in the Assembly vote, he or she can petition for a Writ of Neutrality, effectively removing that member temporarily from the conflict and all its implications.
