Central Pacific Empire Regional Message Board
"The government is slow to respond and undertake action, and although the IC have seen an IPF review, nothing has gone public."
Love Island, the treaty will be published and will have a vote taken within the next week. The government still has 1 week and four days till the end of their term (if they could get voting done in 4 days this would be convenient as voting would be completed before the election). 2 days and 15 hours ago you were so quick to judge the government; it turns out you didn't think too much about it, did you?
Hi all, thought I should introduce myself so here it is :)
I was looking for an active democratic region with a fairly friendly community and came accross yours.
Hey :) Welcome to the CPE, it is wonderful to have you here.
Well I was about to present my revised International Peacekeeping Force Treaty ?
INTERNATIONAL PEACEKEEPING FORCE TREATY 2012
Section 1: Aim of this treaty:
The aim of this Treaty is to establish between signatory nations, the International Peacekeeping Force, herein referred to as the IPF.
Section 2: Signatory regions:
A signatory region is one which has agreed to the terms of this treaty, and the treaty has been ratified into legislation in accordance with the legislative process of the region.
Section 3: The aims of the IPF
A. The IPF will be sent to regions where it is considered these regions may be under threat.
B. The IPF in a region under threat is to assist in transparent negotiations between the region and the aggressor.
C. The IPF shall only use force as a LAST RESORT if a region in which it is sent to serve is to be attacked immanently. In this instance, ‘FORCE’ refers to signatory regions sending WA members (provided their own safety is not at risk) to endorse and back up a native WA delegate.
D. As a first priority when force is used, NATIVE WA Members should be endorsed. Only in cases where there is no WA Member who can take charge should an IPF signatory nation or region be endorsed.
Section 4: Appointment of IPF
A. The IPF may only enter a region with the approval of the leader of that region. Forced entry will be seen as aggression and is therefore not permitted.
B. A leader is defined as the founder, or the WA delegate, depending on the system of the region.
C. Where a leader has been inactive for 10 or more days, there is no WA delegate, and all IPF members agree there is no single leader in the state of chaos, the IPF may decided to enter.
Section 5: Neutrality
The IPF must not side politically with any party or alignment in a region in which it is serving.
Section 6: IPF Region
A. The founder of this Treaty, namely the Central Pacific Empire, is to establish a region named the ‘International Peacekeeping Force Treaty Base’. Each signatory nation is to have an IPF Delegate nation in that region. This is to be controlled by the Defence Minister of the region it represents.
B. The IPF delegates are to regularly discuss world security at the Base, and must be active at least once each 10 days.
C. The Base is to be a password locked region. With the password to be known only to IPF Treaty Members and set by the Commanding Nation of the time.
Section 7: IPF Engagement and Command
When a mission is active, the defence ministers of signatory states are to mobilise their troops to the mission. The Mission Commander is to be a rotational basis based on the length of signatory with rotations to occur on the 15th day of each month.
Section 8: Withdrawal of IPF
Should a regions rightful leader request, the IPF must make a full and complete withdrawal from the Mission nation.
Section 9: Repealed
Section 10: De-legislating IMF Treaty
Any region wishing to leave the IMF Treaty shall inform the Head of the IPF.
Section 11: Repealed.
Section 12: Breach of Treaty
Any breach of this treaty shall be deemed a breaking of the conditions above, and the breaching nation shall be removed as a signatory to the Treaty.
The key changes
The IPF should be allowed to enter a region if there is no leader or WA member, but IPF members agree that entry is necessary.
An IPF Base region is to be established to act as a point of call for IPF signatories.
I would rather promote our own treaty. Our region worked hard on it and we’ve made revisions to make it more workable. This IDA treaty is doomed to fail if there is no dedicated region where each region sends their representative, otherwise discussion becomes fruitless OR the alternative is the IDA is headquartered in one region, so there is no confusion. Each signatory should then have a representative/ambassador in that region for quick response.
Actually there is. We thought of that and amended accordingly. The region is established already :) I understand the potential confusion here. I was received a late and unexpected invitation to the Conference, and agreed to attend on the premise of seeing what happened. I was not involved in the actual drafting of the treaty, I merely reflected on the discussions with the intention of returning to the region.
I stated that I was involved in negotiations on this issue on the RMB, and invited comments. None were forthcoming. I need people's views, as the CPE is not committed to joining the treaty as of yet. I especially need to hear the PM's view. I have been converted to supporting the treaty, largely because of IPF has struggled to get off the ground despite repeated attempts. This IDA would be a larger group of middle powers most of which we already know and are similar in politics to our region. They are:
- Federation of Free States
- New Republica
- Central Pacific Empire
- The Commonwealth of Crowns
As I say, all representatives have returned to their regions to ratify the treaty and decide whether to back it. We are in the same position. If the region wishes to decline to join, then we shall do so. I however believe this to be a mistake.
Should we table our IPF treaty to them. It is more refined and simple?
ELECTION JULY 2013
I would like to announce that I am standing as a Candidate for the July 2013 Election.
As a Conservative Party Candidate, I will support our WA member (soon to be announced) to be put forward as the Prime Ministerial candidate and your first preference.
But now, you can also vote in the Conservative Party team, including myself, to have a Council that will steadily and strategically bring about change!
It is very exciting to see the new election process start to form into action, but after reading your post, Raindrop, I couldn't help but ponder about its irony.
Good luck to all the candidates! :)
Thanks Cardinal, it is a pleasure to hear from you :) The RPM will make an announcement very soon, as I am sure this will be an exceptionally competitive election. I know it will be a success. Raindrop, that would be problematic considering two regions have ratified the present IDA Treaty. This treaty, containing some of my input on the region's behalf, does everything the IPF treaty WOULD do if we could convince regions to join it. And all regions can claim ownership of it, not just us or FFS or anyone else for that matter.
Here is the final version:
ONAL DEFENSE ALLIANCE TREATY
Section 1: Aim of this treaty
The aim of this Treaty is to establish between signatory nations, the Interregional Defense Alliance, herein referred to as the IDA.
Section 2: Member Regions
A member region is a region that has agreed to the terms of this treaty, and the treaty has been ratified in accordance with the political process of the region.
Section 3: The Defense Force
The defense force of the IDA will be WA member nations that are part of the member nation's armed forces or are volunteers.
Section 4: The Interregional Defense Council
4.1. The Interregional Defense Council, or the Defense Council, shall be comprised of nations sent by the member nations to represent their region in defense decisions. Defense Council Members are to represent the opinions of their region.
4.2. The Defense Council shall meet to discuss the action to be taken and the defense mission.
4.3. Defense Council Members are to be a puppet nation of the member region's choosing. The member region is to choose their representative in accordance to their respective regional and constitutional law. The nation could be sent by a puppet the region's equivalent to a minister of defense, foreign affairs, or the head of its military. There may only be one representative per region.
4.4. The Defense Council shall be chaired by one of its members. The position of the Chairman of the Defense Council is to have a term of 3 months and cycles through the Members in alphabetical order.
Section 5: Purpose
The IDA shall serve a means to ensure the mutual defense of member regions from outside and inside invasion. Member regions agree to defend each other in time of need if able and legally permitted. Member regions agree to share intelligence concerning their fellow regions. The IDA intends to maintain Justice and Liberty in its member regions.
Section 6: Beliefs of the IDA
6.1. The IDA shall promote national sovereignty and regional sovereignty.
6.2. The IDA member regions ally themselves against tyranny and common defense of each other.
6.3. Forcing out regions that are not 'in line' with Defense Council political beliefs is not allowed.
6.4. The IDA holds that regions should be able to choose their policies without foreign interference.
6.5. An attack on a member region is to be considered an attack on the IDA. Although, a military response is not required.
Section 7: Guidelines and Procedure
7.1. The IDA must pursue diplomatic methods prior to defensive action. Peace is paramount. When diplomatic methods fail, defensive military action is permitted to be taken in order to ensure common defense.
7.2. The IDA may only send the defense force with written permission from the legitimate regional government of the member region under siege or legitimate members of the region's populace.
7.3. The IDA may only protect member regions, unless the Defense Council reaches a simple majority to protect non-member regions and the Defense Council receives express permission from the legitimate government of that region.
7.4. The member regions are not compelled to partake in defensive action for fellow member regions nor for non-member regions, although it is an obligation for member regions to respond in the method they choose.
7.5. The Defense Council will vote on whether or not to mobilize its Defense Force with a simple majority.
7.6. Sending in member region's military forces are to only be the last resort when all other methods fail. The defense force shall be sent in to aid the region in need by endorsing the native WA Delegate in order to secure the WA Delegate position and the region from the invading force. In the event there is no native WA Delegate, a defense force member will be selected to serve as the temporary WA Delegate.
7.7. In order to not interfere nor contradict law of member regions, the IDA cannot force member regions to assist in defense missions. Defense Council Members must have authorization from their region before committing militarily.
7.8. The IDA must not side politically with any party or alignment in a member region in which it is serving, but it may only side with the legitimate government.
Section 8: Joining and Leaving the IDA
8.1. Additional regions may join the IDA. The Defense Council must approve of that region joining with a simple majority.
8.2. To become a member region, regions must ratify this treaty.
8.3. Regions may leave the IDA without permission of the Defense Council.
Section 9: Monthly Summit
9.1. The Defense Council is to meet on a monthly basis to discuss regional and interregional affairs. The state of the IDA is to be addressed.
9.2. The summit shall be held each month between the 10th to the 20th day.
9.3. The Defense Council must maintain communication with each other.
9.4. The summit's location is to be in the designated region, IDA Defense Council. Here the Defense Council will assemble. All member regions are to have embassies with the Defense Council.
Section 10: Violations to the Treaty
Any and all violations of the IDA treaty are to be enforced by the Defense Council. The Defense Council may vote with a simple majority to expel member regions because of violations of the terms outlined.
Section 11: Amendments to the Treaty
Amendments to this treaty are to be proposed by the Defense Council with a supermajority and must be approved by the regional governments of the member regions by ratification.
It is in fact very much modeled on our own treaty. I will need to discuss with my party colleagues. A little bit disappointed I wasn't actually invited to participate.
