Pursuant to the will of the Senate, we have negotiated a Treaty of Reunification, which has been signed by the Prince of Elwynn, The Kaiser of Shireroth, and the Duke of Elwynn, to wit:
As debate and discussion of this has been public, I move to vote.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 ONE: The lands and people of the Province of the Elwynnese Union known as Elwynn Proper shall join with the lands and people of the Shirerithian Duchy of Elwynn in establishing one government for them both, under the conditions of this Treaty.
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.
ARTICLE FIVE: All nationals of the Elwynnese Union are automatically citizens of the Imperial State of Elwynn, subject to the following. Those nationals of the Elwynnese Union with primary residence in territories not being West Elwynn shall choose whether or not to claim citizenship in 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. Any constitution so adopted by two-thirds of the citizens voting during a period of 96 hours will become the official law of the Imperial State 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. East Elwynn will continue to be led by Balarak Alaion, who may continue to style himself "Duke of Elwynn", and by the Elwmoot of East Elwynnese. West Elwynn will continue to be led by Jacobus Loki, who may continue to style himself "Prince of Elwynn", and by the Senate of West Elwynnese. Each of these two local governments may continue to pass laws binding only upon its own lands and people in a manner consistent to this Treaty and their own legal processes. Elwynnese Union law will continue to apply to West Elwynn in as much as it conforms to this Treaty, and Duchy of Elwynn law will continue to apply to East Elwynn in as much as it conforms to this Treaty.
ARTICLE EIGHT: The Provisional Government of the Imperial State of Elwynn will be led by Soreaa Isurui, who will bear the style of Secretary of State of Elwynn. She shall chair the Constitutional Convention and handle any day to day decisions of state that may arise which concern the entirety of the Imperial State and not simply either the Eastern or Western half. She shall also hear disputes under this Treaty and make rulings on them. In the event that she is unable to continue as Secretary of State or the Constitutional Assembly loses confidence in her, the Constitutional Assembly shall elect a new Secretary of State subject to same provisions.

CHAPTER THREE: AMNESTY
ARTICLE THIRTEEN: At the time of the ratification of this treaty, a general amnesty shall be declared for citizens and nationals of the Imperial Republic of Shireroth and the Elwynnese Union regarding crimes committed as part of the conflict between the two nations. Such crimes shall be immune from prosecution, either by the Imperial Government of Shireroth or by the Imperial State of Elwynn.
ARTICLE FOURTEEN: This amnesty will not restrict the Imperial Republic of Shireroth or the Imperial State of Elwynn from denying citizenship or other rights to those individuals not aligned with either entity at the time of ratification based on actions they committed during the conflict.
ARTICLE FIFTEEN: In addition to the legal amnesty, all individuals on both sides are earnestly encouraged to seek true forgiveness and understanding.
CHAPTER FOUR: FORUMS
ARTICLE SIXTEEN: The Imperial Republic of Shireroth will grant a forum to the Imperial State of Elwynn. Any member of the Elwynnese Union may petition to have a forum from the Elwynnese Union moved to the Imperial Republic of Shireroth or the Imperial State of Elwynn, which request will be enacted upon approval of the Kaiser of Shireroth or Provisional Government of Elwynn, respectively.
ARTICLE SEVENTEEN: The Imperial Republic of Shireroth accepts an obligation to host for at least three months the forum of any former Union Territory of the Elwynnese Union granted independence in Chapter One of this treaty which neither joins another nation, convinces the Bastion Union to host them separately, nor chooses to create its own forum outside the Bastion. The former Union Territories of the Elwynnese Union are under no obligation to accept this offer, nor does acceptance of this offer necessarily imply any political relationship with the Imperial Republic of Shireroth.
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.
ARTICLE NINETEEN: When all Territories have evacuated the forum and all requested forum transfers to Shireroth have been completed, the forums of the Elwynnese Union will be archived by the Bastion administration.
ARTICLE TWENTY: The main forum of East Elwynn will be archived in accordance with normal Shirerithian forum archival policies. The owners of any subforums on East Elwynn may petition to have them moved to the new Imperial State forum in the same way as described in Article Sixteen.
