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.

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.

A resolution to ratify the MTO's Convention on the Laws of the Seas

The Landsraad here assembled resolves to ratify the MTO's aforementioned convention, the full text of which is contained in Schedule 1.

Schedule 1
Convention on the Laws of the Seas

1. Any nation that has signed the General Membership Treaty may sign this Convention.
2. The territory of a state extends 24 kilometers from the baseline coast of that state. This water is considered territorial water and subject to the full jurisdiction of the state. All matters of customs, taxation, and immigration operate as if wholly within the state.
3. The reserve zone of a state extends 360 kilometers from the baseline coast of that state. The economic and environmental resources within this zone belong fully to that state.
4. In special situations where the territorial waters or the reserve zone of two states would overlap, the line of separation will be drawn along the midpoint between the baseline of each state.
5. The baseline coast of state will be determined accordingly:
5.1. In localities where the coastline is deeply indented and cut into, or if there is a fringe of islands along the coast in its immediate vicinity, the method of straight baselines joining appropriate points may be employed in drawing the baseline from which the breadth of the territorial sea is measured.
5.2. Where because of the presence of a delta and other natural conditions the coastline is highly unstable, the appropriate points may be selected along the furthest seaward extent of the low-water line and, notwithstanding subsequent regression of the low-water line, the straight baselines shall remain effective until changed by the coastal State in accordance with this Convention.
5.3. The drawing of straight baselines must not depart to any appreciable extent from the general direction of the coast, and the sea areas lying within the lines must be sufficiently closely linked to the land domain to be subject to the regime of internal waters.
5.4. Straight baselines shall not be drawn to and from low-tide elevations,unless lighthouses or similar installations which are permanently above sea level have been built on them or except in instances where the drawing of baselines to and from such elevations has received general international recognition.
5.5. Where the method of straight baselines is applicable under paragraph 4.1, account may be taken, in determining particular baselines, of economic interests peculiar to the region concerned, the reality and the importance of which are clearly evidenced by long usage.
5.6. The system of straight baselines may not be applied by a State in such a manner as to cut off the territorial sea of another State entirely from the high seas or a reserve zone.
6. Innocent Passage is permitted through territorial waters so long as it is not prejudicial to the peace, good order or security of the coastal State. Such passage shall take place in conformity with this Convention and with other rules of international law.
6.1. Passage of a foreign ship shall be considered to be prejudicial to the peace, good order or security of the coastal State if in the territorial sea it engages in any of the following activities:
6.2. any threat or use of force against the sovereignty, territorial integrity or political independence of the coastal State;
6.3. any exercise or practice with weapons of any kind;
6.4. any act aimed at collecting information to the prejudice of the defence or security of the coastal State;
6.5. any act of propaganda aimed at affecting the defence or security of the coastal State;
6.6. the launching, landing or taking on board of any aircraft;
6.7. the launching, landing or taking on board of any military device;
6.8. the loading or unloading of any commodity, currency or person contrary to the customs, fiscal, immigration or sanitary laws and regulations of the coastal State;
6.9. any act of willful and serious pollution contrary to this Convention;
6.10. any fishing activities;
6.11. the carrying out of research or survey activities;
6.12. any act aimed at interfering with any systems of communication or any other facilities or installations of the coastal State;
6.13. any other activity not having a direct bearing on passage.
7. Transit passage is permitted through the reserve zone solely for the purpose of continuous and expeditious travel between one part of the international waters or reserve zone and another.
8. This treaty recognizes the following bodies of water as International Waters: Great Western Sea, Halberd Strait, Shire Sea, Central Sea, Gaeos Strait, Raynor Sea, Northern Sea, Strait of Pearls, O'Rear Strait, Dyre Straits, Captive Sea, Orange Sea, Sea of Storms, Austral Strait, Eastern Ocean, Pond Strait, Normark-Lindley Passage, New Brannum Strait, Inner Cibolan Sea, and all other open ocean that is beyond the reserve zone of every nation represented on the Micronational Cartography Society's map.
8.1. Any portion of International Waters that would otherwise be defined as the territorial water of a State is excluded from the definition of International Waters.
9. 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.
10. This convention may be amended by 3/4 majority of signatory nations.

c. Wherever the exclusive economic zones of the High Contracting Parties shall clash, the median point between the coasts of the states shall be the border of between the aforesaid exclusive economic zones.

Article 8: Further Clarification of Territorial Waters
Further clarification on the question of territorial waters may be produced by mutual consent of the High Contracting Parties via an ancillary agreement to this Treaty.

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;
  4. 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;

The instruments of ratification shall be deposited as soon as possible with the Government of the Bovic Empire of the Natopian Nation, which will notify all other signatories of each deposit. The Treaty shall enter into force between the Nations which have ratified it as soon as the acts of ratification of Shireroth, Natopia and Alexandria have been deposited and shall come into effect with respect to other Nations on the date of the deposit of their act of ratification.
