Treaty of Cairdeas: Caer Sidi - Europeia Treaty
#1

The Republic of Europeia
And
The Warren of Caer Sidi
Treaty of Cairdeas


WHEREAS The Republic of Europeia (“Europeia”) and The Warren of Caer Sidi (“Caer Sidi”) have endeavored to develop political systems rooted in equality, liberty, and justice;


WHEREAS Europeia and Caer Sidi have a shared history of friendship and cooperation;


WHEREAS Europeia and Caer Sidi wish to continue building the relationship we hold;


NOW, THEREFORE, Europeia and Caer Sidi agree to the following:


1. Sovereignty


a) Europeia will recognize only the legitimate government of Caer Sidi, as determined by Caer Sidi law, as representative of the Region and People of Caer Sidi.


b) Caer Sidi will recognize only the legitimate government of Europeia, as determined by Europeian law, as representative of the Region and People of Europeia.


c) Neither Signatory may cede sovereign control of their region to another entity.


2. Military Undertakings


a) Neither Caer Sidi nor Europeia will engage in military hostilities against the other, or against one another's protectorates which have been established by regional law and communicated to the other signatory. Participation by Caer Sidi and Europeia on opposite sides of a military engagement that does not constitute an attack on either region or a region's protectorate shall not be considered "military hostilities against the other" for this purpose.


b) To the extent practicable, Caer Sidi and Europeia shall provide the other defensive military assistance in case of an attack by an aggressor. Under no circumstance will either Signatory give direct or indirect aid to the aggressor.


c) Caer Sidi and Europeia shall not cede sovereign control over their respective military forces to any supraregional alliance. Sovereign control is interpreted as being able to make the ultimate decision with regards to the region's military resources participating in a military operation. Both regions may continue to enter into bilateral and multilateral agreements for common defense.


d) Caer Sidi and Europeia shall aid each other in Delegacy transferrals when requested.


e) Caer Sidi and Europeia will collaborate militarily for the combined benefit of both regions when practical.


3. World Assembly Matters


a) Neither Signatory will write or vote for a Security Council Resolution naming the other Signatory, or an entity strongly associated with the other Signatory, without the express approval of the other Signatory. For this purpose, an entity shall be considered strongly associated with a Signatory if it is reasonably likely that the Resolution naming the entity will impact the reputation of the Signatory.


b) Each Signatory will endeavour, where appropriate and possible, to collaborate with the other in World Assembly programs and activities, such as the discussion or drafting of proposals, educational initiatives, or other similar projects.


4. Diplomatic Undertakings


a) Each Signatory shall establish and maintain in-game embassies (i.e., on the NationStates site) with one another.


b) Each Signatory shall maintain off-site embassies with one another, consistent with facilities provided to other treatied allies.


5. Intelligence Undertakings


a) Neither Signatory will engage in espionage against the other. For this purpose, "espionage" is the act of engaging a person to act under false pretenses in a Signatory region without the permission of that region's legitimate government.


b) The Signatories each shall provide information to the other if such information is pertinent to the other region's security or well-being, or otherwise upon the other's reasonable request, unless the party in possession of such information reasonably believes that providing that information might violate applicable laws or contravene the terms of service for NationStates or a regional communications platform, or when revealing that information would unduly compromise that party's source(s) of information. Both signatories shall endeavor to reveal as much as possible in such situations, but not more than they can under laws, terms of service, or the need to protect sources.


c) Each Signatory will make it a violation of its internal laws to engage in espionage against the other if a similar or related law to the same effect does not already exist. To the extent permitted by each region's laws, this section shall be deemed self-executing.


6. Cultural Undertakings


a) Each signatory will endeavour, where appropriate and possible, to engage in social and cultural activities with the other signatory. This can include, but is not limited to, festivals, competitions, and university sharing events.


7. Recruitment Undertakings


a) Neither Caer Sidi nor Europeia will deliberately engage in recruitment from the other, nor from one another's protectorates which have been established by regional law and communicated to the other signatory. "Recruitment" is defined as the sending of telegrams on the NationStates site to encourage nations to move regions.


8. Civil Rights


a) Each signatory affirms its commitment to guarantee freedom of thought and expression, including the freedom of faith and of conscience, freedom to profess a religious or philosophical creed, and the right to freely express and disseminate opinions in any manner or medium. Notwithstanding the foregoing, freedom of thought and expression shall not be construed as providing any protection for speech or conduct that a reasonable person would infer is intended to offend, threaten or insult an individual or group on the basis of that individual's or group's sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, color, language, religion, or national or social origin.


b) Each signatory affirms its commitment to guarantee the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and freedom of association with others.


c) Each signatory affirms its commitment to guarantee equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination on any ground including sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, color, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth, or other status.


9. General Provisions


a) This Treaty will come into force on the date of ratification by both Europeia and Caer Sidi as dictated by their respective governing procedures.


b) Either Signatory reserves the right to exit this Treaty. The exiting Signatory must make reasonable efforts to notify the other as soon as possible.


c) This agreement may be amended by mutual agreement of both Signatories.


d) Upon ratification, this treaty shall be the sole bilateral treaty between Caer Sidi and Europeia, superseding any prior written documents describing a relationship between the regions.
