The Coalition of Six also referred to as C6, is an intergovernmental coalition alliance of six nations in The Western Isles who have come together to form one body where they can accomplish the goal of world peace and regional stability. The purpose of the C6 is to safeguard the freedom and security of its members through political and military means.
The Political arm of the organisation encourages consultation and cooperation on defence and security issues to build trust and, in the long run, prevent armed conflict. The Military arm of the organisation is committed to the peaceful resolution of disputes. If diplomatic efforts fail, it has the military capacity needed to undertake crisis-management operations.
The C6 was formed as a result of the growing tensions in the region that seek to undermine the sovereignty and security of nations in the Western Isles. The nations of the C6 will seek to cooperate together to defend themselves and other nations while promoting peace and ensuring stability throughout the Western Isles.
The C6 consists of six original member states and subsequent associated states which are allowed to join. However, the decisions and agreements are made within the Coalition. Each member nation must send a delegate to represent their country. The representatives all bear the title of Ambassadors. Representation is not limited to Foreign Affairs Minister, Heads of Government, Defense Ministers, or High Ranked Military officials.
The Headquarters of the C6 is located in Coventry, Covonant. An $695 million project was set up as a cooperative venture between each member nation who all contributed towards the construction of the C6 Headquarters.
The Assembly & Military Committee
The Coalition of Six is governed by the C6 Assembly, or the Coalition Assembly (CA), which comprises of representatives from all member states. This body convenes every week to discuss international affairs and the effect they have on the C6.
The Assembly is chaired by the Secretary General who is responsible for coordinating the workings of the coalition and leading the C6 staff.
The C6's military operations are controlled by the Chairman of the C6 Military Committee who is usually headed by a senior commander of one of the member's military. The Military Committee is in charge of the combined C6 Forces which is contributed towards by all member nations.
The C6 Forces
The C6 has a combined force that is contributed towards by every member nation. This force answers directly to the Military Committee who answers to the Assembly. The force is a reactionary one, able to strike wherever it needs to be.
It has multiple roles, including a peacekeeping force that tries to enforce diplomacy and building relations rather than destroy them by war. They are also a defensive force, mobilised to ensure a member state under assault can be protected efficiently. Finally, they can be deployed to fight against an enemy who has declared war on a member state.
The Parties to this Treaty reaffirm their faith in the purposes and principles of their desire to live in peace with all peoples and all governments. They are determined to safeguard the freedom, common heritage and civilisation of their peoples. They seek to promote stability and well-being in their positioned inter-region and the greater Western Isles.
They are resolved to unite their efforts for collective defence and for the preservation of peace and security. They therefore agree to this Coalition of Six (C6) treaty:
The Parties undertake, to settle any international dispute in which they may be involved by peaceful means in such a manner that international peace and security and justice 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 the Coalition.
The Parties will contribute toward the further development of peaceful and friendly international relations by strengthening their free institutions, by bringing about a better understanding of the principles upon which these institutions are founded, and by promoting conditions of stability and well-being. They will seek to eliminate conflict in their international economic policies and will encourage economic collaboration between any or all of them.
In order more effectively to achieve the objectives of this Treaty, the Parties, separately and jointly, by means of continuous and effective self-help and mutual aid, will maintain and develop their individual and collective capacity to resist armed attack.
The Parties will consult together whenever, in the opinion of any of them, the territorial integrity, political independence or security of any of the Parties is threatened.
The Parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in The Western Isles shall be considered an attack against them all and consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, will assist the Party or Parties so attacked by taking forthwith, individually and in concert with the other Parties, such action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force, to restore and maintain the security of the member state of the Coalition of Six (C6) and by extent the Western Isles.
Any such armed attack and all measures taken as a result thereof shall immediately be reported to the C6 Assembly. Such measures shall be terminated when the C6 Assembly has taken the measures necessary to restore and maintain international peace and security.
For the purpose of Article 5, an armed attack on one or more of the Parties is deemed to include an armed attack:
On the territory of any of the Parties in The Western Isles, on the territory of or on the Islands under the jurisdiction of any of the Parties in the Coalition of Six (C6);
on the forces, vessels, or aircraft of any of the Parties, when in or over these territories or any other area in The Western Isles in which occupation forces of any of the Parties were stationed on the date when the Treaty entered into force or any inter-region of The Western Isles.
This Treaty does not affect, and shall not be interpreted as affecting in any way the rights and obligations of the Parties which are members of The Western Isles, or the primary responsibility of the C6 Assembly for the maintenance of international peace and security.
The Parties hereby establish an Assembly, on which each of them shall be represented, to consider matters concerning the implementation of this Treaty. The Council shall be so organised as to be able to meet promptly at any time. The Council shall set up such subsidiary bodies as may be necessary.
The Parties may, by unanimous agreement, invite any other Western Isle state in a position to further the principles of this Treaty and to contribute to the security of each member state to accede to this Treaty.
This Treaty shall be ratified and its provisions carried out by the Parties in accordance with their respective constitutional processes. The Treaty shall enter into force between the States which have ratified it as soon as the ratifications of the majority of the signatories, including the ratifications of The Union of Covonant, The Empire of Keomora, The Queendom of Perawin, The People's Federation of Domanania, The Democratic Republic of Athara Magarat, The Semi-Democratic Overlordship of Noronica have been deposited and shall come into effect with respect to other States on the date of the deposit of their ratifications.
After the Treaty has been in force for 3 months, the Parties shall, if any of them so requests, consult together for the purpose of reviewing the Treaty, having regard for the factors then affecting peace and security in the member states, including the development of universal as well as inter-regional arrangements for the maintenance of international peace and security.
After the Treaty has been in force for 1 month, any Party may cease to be a Party 1 week after its notice of denunciation has been given to the C6 Assembly, which will inform the Governments of the other Parties of the deposit of each notice of denunciation.
The Treaty came into force on May 29, 2016.
