Protectorate of Safiria Treaty Ratification (4672)

IV. All citizens of Safiria who qualify for Shirerithian citizenship under the tri-cit law are automatically granted Shirerithian citizenship. This citizenship may be revoked by the Shirerithian government in specific cases, in which case the person involved will remain a Safirian citizen but without the privileges of Shirerithian citizenship.

V. Applications by Shirerithian citizens for Safirian citizenship will be decided by the Safirian government. Safirian citizenship will not count as a separate citizenship with regards to Tri-Cit.

VII. Safiria is permitted to retain its own military, but it may not declare war unilaterally. Safirian diplomatic policy will mirror that decided by Shireroth's Ministry of the Exterior.

Third, the Minister of Military Affairs is ordered to begin a deployment to the Antican frontier with the mission of helping with the refugee crisis and containing the unknown threat in the area.

TREATY BETWEEN THE IMPERIAL REPUBLIC AND THE ELWYNNESE UNION ON THE TERMS OF ELWYNNESE AND SHIRERITHIAN REUNIFICATION


Having resolved the disagreements that led to many years of separation and enmity between them; and having repented of and forgiven past transgressions on both sides; and having reawoken and fanned the desire for the United Elwynn enjoyed by their forefathers, the Elwynnese Union and the Imperial Republic of Shireroth hereby agree to reconcile their difference and unite into a single entity according to these terms laid out below.

CHAPTER ONE: UNIFICATION OF ELWYNN

ARTICLE TWO: The Duchy of Elwynn (hereafter "East Elwynn") hereby dissolves itself. All its territories revert back to Imperial Lands; however, all subdivision boundaries, internal noble titles, and internal laws remain in effect by the grace of Her Niftiness the Kaiseress.

ARTICLE THREE: The Crown and Landsraad recognize a new Imperial State, hereinaftercalled the Imperial State of Elwynn, consisting of the lands of East Elwynn, the lands of the Province Elwynn Proper (hereafter "West Elwynn") and South Alalehzamin as marked on Version 14.2.2 of the MCS Map.

ARTICLE FOUR: All citizens of East Elwynn are automatically citizens of the Imperial State of Elwynn.

And those nationals of the Elwynnese Union with citizenship held in an Imperial State of Shireroth may choose either to retain their citizenship in their original Imperial State or to shift their citizenship to the Imperial State of Elwynn.

ARTICLE SIX: A constitutional assembly will be called immediately in the Imperial State of Elwynn to determine the forms of government in the new entity. Upon the completion of the assembly, the proposed constitution will be put to a vote by the citizens of Elwynn.

The period until the adoption of such a constitution will be known as the Provisional Government.

ARTICLE SEVEN: The Provisional Government will be marked by the status quo in both East Elwynn and West Elwynn.

ARTICLE EIGHTEEN: All classified forums of the former Elwynnese Union will be declassified as part of the archiving of the Elwynnese Union. All classified forums of the former Duchy of Elwynn will also be declassified as part of the archiving of the Duchy of Elwynn.

The Treaty of Osĵätoņ

Preamble

The governments of the Kingdom of Craitland and the Imperial Republic of Shireroth, hereafter referred to as the 'High Contracting Parties,' represented by His Majesty King Craitman of Craitland and His Excellency Vilhelm Benkern, Shirerithian Ambassador to Craitland,
Desiring to bring about a new era of co-operation and friendship between their nations,
Recognising the good spirit in which the Covenant of Cherry Trees between the Kingdom of Craitland and the Elwynnese Union was affirmed, but noting its various failures, and
Affirming the nascent friendship that, though never formally enshrined in a treaty, has brought together their two peoples,
have established the following points, emanating from mutual principles, as specified terms of a formal diplomatic relationship binding their two governments in international law.

Recognition

1. The High Contracting Parties recognise and pledge never to violate the sovereignty, territorial integrity and legal jurisdiction of the other, and therefore recognise the respective applicability of each state's laws in relation to citizens of any nationality while within their jurisdiction.
2. The High Contracting Parties guarantee the diplomatic immunity of one another's Heads of State and Government as well as duly accredited ambassadors. Shireroth pledges to allow the opening and maintenance of a permanent Craitish embassy in Shirekeep, while Craitland will make available the former Elwynnese embassy for full use as a Shirerithian embassy.

Co-operation
3. The High Contracting Parties undertake to encourage full and productive co-operation between organs of the state, academic or other research institutions, charitable organisations and other such entities engaged in the pursuit of the furtherance of archaeology, cultural development, history, language, science, technology, and other such areas of research, across both jurisdictions, and shall endeavour to lift any unnecessary bars or fetters to such research and provide expedited state entry procedures for those individuals involved.

Mutual Prosperity
4. The High Contracting Parties shall permit and encourage trade, commerce and industry across their borders, with special consideration given to the transit of manufactured goods and raw materials. In major infrastructure projects, the governments of the High Contracting Parties shall in the tendering process consider companies from each nation alike.

Respect for Territory

5. The High Contracting Parties shall respect their rights to future territorial expansion and recognise the international limit of rights to waters as categorised into two zones:
5.1 Territorial waters, consisting of 24 kilometers from the coast of the state, subject to full jurisdiction of the state.
5.2 Reserve zone, consisting of 360 kilometers from the coast of the state, where the state has full ownership of economic and environmental resources.
6. Further clarification on the question of territorial water may be produced by mutual consent of the High Contracting Parties via an ancillary agreement to this Treaty.

Efficacy of this Treaty
7. This Treaty shall take effect upon ratification by the High Contracting Parties in accordance with their respective constitutional situation.
8. This Treaty shall be valid indefinitely, and may be amended, repealed or replaced by mutual consent of the High Contracting Parties.
9. Following the negotiation of any further amendments to this Treaty, it shall be re-signed and re-ratified.
10. This Treaty shall lapse if one High Contracting Party collapses, dies or is annexed by another sovereign nation, and shall not bind any successor state.

Concluded this day, Friday, 29th November, 2013 / Fishday, 8th H'Graasreign, 5229 ASC, at Osĵätoņ.

Ratification of a Treaty with the Apollonian Republic of Shireroth's East [5562]

TREATY between the ALLIED FORCES and the FEUDAL FACTION

Between the ALLIED FORCES: The APOLLONIAN REPUBLIC OF SHIREROTH’S EAST and the CONFEDERATION OF HAU'OLI 'ENA

And the FEUDAL FACTION: The IMPERIAL REPUBLIC OF SHIREROTH and the DUTCHY OF KILDARE

Represented by:
Apollonian Republic of Shireroth’s East: Trajan Myksos
Confederation of Hau’Oli’Ena: RasmOS
Imperial Republic of Shireroth: Kaiser Redquill
Dutchy of Kildare: Kaiser Redquill

Regarding the representative of Kildare: The Dutchy of Kildare, represented by Dutch Titus Myksos issued a declaration of independence on 17 October 2014, a declaration which was illegal under Article V, Section C of the Imperial Charter of Shireroth. According to the previous mentioned section of the Imperial Charter of Shireroth, the Dutchy was placed under the direct control of the Kaiser. Trajan Myksos, the Caudillo of the Apollonian Republic of Shireroth’s East can therefore not be considered a representative of the Dutchy of Kildare, not being given that role by Kaiser Redquill. Having placed themselves outside the Imperial Republic of Shireroth, the ALLIED FORCES are considered force external to the Imperial Republic of Shireroth.

Article 1:

It is agreed by both parties that all territories belonging to the DUTCHY OF KILDARE on the date when this treaty is signed will be transferred to the ALLIED FORCES, exempting Hawshire-Dura.

Article 2:

The ALLIED FORCES promise that they will not alter the status of Aracigrad.

Ratification of the Shirerithian, Alexandrian, and Natopian Entente [6348]
Quote:
The Shirerithian, Alexandrian, and Natopian Entente

As agreed upon and proposed by the ministers of the governments of Shireroth, Alexandria, and Natopia united together in friendly congress, the occasion has been judged proper for asserting, as a principle in which the rights and interests of Shireroth, Alexandria, and Natopia are involved, that the Western Hemisphere, that is the continents of Benacia, Cibola, Tapfer, and associated major and minor outlying islands, by the free and independent condition which they have assumed and maintain, are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future interference by any Other states. We owe it, therefore, to candor and to the amicable relations existing between Shireroth, Alexandria, and Natopia and those Other states in the world to declare that we should consider any attempt on their part to extend their influence to any portion of the Western Hemisphere as dangerous to our collective stability, peace, and safety. With the existing colonies or dependencies of any Other state we have not interfered and shall not interfere. But with the Governments who have declared their independence and maintained it, and whose independence we have, on great consideration and on just principles, acknowledged, we could not view any interposition for the purpose of oppressing them, or controlling in any other manner their destiny, by any Other state in any other light than as the manifestation of an unfriendly disposition toward the Western Powers. To further this shared goal Shireroth, Alexandria, and Natopia join together as allied, aligned, and cooperative states under the following provisions.

WE, THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE SIGNATORY NATIONS -
RECOGNISING the necessity for the creation of a new partnership of nations confirming as the basis of their partnership the certitude of adhering to the same set of common beliefs and values that encourage freedom and stability throughout the Western Hemisphere;

SEEKING to preserve freedom for posterity, as well as the common heritage and civilisation of their peoples, founded on the principles of democracy, individual liberty and the rule of law;

DESIRING to work together towards the preservation and the establishment of a lasting and strong state of international stability and well-being to Micras;

STRESSING the need to take necessary and effective steps to prevent and remove threats to the peace and stability of our nations, and to work together for the suppression of acts of aggression;

BELIEVING that a strong and real international partnership based on co-operation will include a commitment to working together to solve international problems of a economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian character;


  1. The Signatory Nations hereby declare that they undertake to settle any possible international disputes in which they may be involved by peaceful means in such a manner that the international peace and security are not endangered, and to refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force in any manner inconsistent with the purposes of this partnership;
  2. The Signatory Nations will contribute toward the continued development of peaceful and friendly international relations by strengthening their institutions, by bringing about a better understanding of the principles upon which these institutions are founded, and by the continued promotion of stability and well-being.
  3. The Signatory Nations shall strive to consult together when in the opinion of any of them the territorial integrity, national sovereignty, political independence or security of any of its members is threatened;

The Signatory Nations hereby pledge that an armed attack against one or more of them shall be considered an attack against them all and consequently agree that in the occurrence of such attack, that each of them shall exercise their right of individual or collective self-defence and assist in concert with the other Signatory Nations to pursue the necessary and proper actions to restore and maintain the security of the threatened and attacked.
    1. Where a Signatory Nation is the instigator of an attack on another power that was not in self-defence in the face of an imminent proven threat of attack, no obligation shall exist on the part of other Signatory Nations to intervene except to offer humanitarian assistance and or mediation to the belligerent parties.
  5. The Signatory Nations pledge to, jointly and separately, maintain and develop their individual and collective capacity to resist armed attack, and to defeat any threat to its security, domestic or foreign through effective self-help and mutual aid;

  8. The Signatory Nations pledge to conduct joint maritime exercises to better familiarise their respective armed forces with their allied counterparts;
    Being mindful of the Convention on the Laws of the Seas which states that acts of piracy, boarding with hostile intent, purposeful harm to a person, and purposeful obstruction of transit in International Waters are to be considered intolerable and go against the order and law of the high seas; the Signatory Nations authorises and institutes a Joint Mission which shall be known as the Festival de las Armadas.

  9. The Signatory Nations have agreed to establish a Joint Command of the armed forces that by agreement among the Signatory Nations shall be assigned to the Command, which shall function on the basis of jointly established principles. They shall likewise adopt other agreed measures necessary to strengthen their defensive power, in order to protect respective peoples, guarantee the inviolability of their frontiers and territories, and provide defence against possible aggression.
    1. The Joint Military Council shall be composed of an equal number of representatives for all Signatory Nations. Representatives shall be appointed by the chief military authority of each Signatory Nation to this treaty.

  19. The airspace of a Signatory Nation is defined as all air, up to 100km, directly above the Signatory Nation and its territorial water, but not its reserve zone. The airspace of Bencia, Cibola, and Tapfer is open to all other Signatory Nations for commercial and passenger services.

THAT we have taken notice of the precarious situation in the Shirithian capital of Shirekeep, where an effort is underway to replace the tyrannical and unfit ruler of this country, the Kaiser Dominus Tarjeisson, in favour of a strong and capable government under the leadership of the Khan of Vijayanagara.

THAT the Iron Company, having significant business interests in the Shirithian nation, declares its support for the stabilising efforts of the Khan of Vijayanagara, as well as other progressive forces such as the Ministry of Military Affairs, the Ministry of the Exterior, the Office of Bounties and Factorage, the Goldshirithian Monarchy and the various military groups that provide assistance to their commendable efforts.

THAT the Iron Company denounces the actions taken by certain factions within the Shirithian government to counter the progress that has been made to reach stability and harmony. We firmly reject the decision of the Elwynnese treacherous clique and their allies to stand against the will of the people and the best interest of the Shirithian nation.

THAT the prime interests of the Iron Company lie with safeguarding our investments in Shirekeep and other war zones. For that reason, twenty-thousand soldiers in the Iron Militia will immediately be deployed to the Shirithian capital to protect the Quarters of the Company, as well as the docklands and the vessels and warehouses used by our Company. In addition, 4 naval cruisers will be sent to ensure the stability of the Elwynnese delta.
