Global Defense Initiative CharterEdit
Article 1-Mission Statements and BasicsEdit
1.1 - Declaration of Existence: The body of nationalities that are recognized and qualified as members are all a part of the Global Defence Initiative. We affirm that we are to strive in our actions for the betterment of our fellow members and the overall alliance.

Article 2 - Government structure Edit
2.0 - The current power structure of direct command is intended for maximum effectiveness in a small-group situation. As our membership will be small to begin, a full democracy and military establishment would be impractical and ultimately ineffective. Our focus is on our ability to quickly adapt to changes that will indeed occur during our growth, with the need of wasted time, resources, or other means.
2.1 - The Supreme Commander, and Deputy Supreme Commander are the leaders of the GDI. The Supreme Commander has complete rule of the alliance and can dictate against anyone's orders in the alliance. The Deputy Supreme Commander is appointed by the Supreme Commander for as long as the Supreme Commander decides, or when the Deputy Supreme Commander resigns. The powers of the Deputy Supreme Commander/Supreme Commander are complete, and can change anything in the alliance. Their job is to overview the alliance and ensure that everything is running normally and for the best of the alliance and their allies.
2.2 - Overview of Generals/Department Heads: Generals hold absolute power in their directed branches. They are appointed to their positions under the Supreme Commander's request (unless the prospective member refuses), and are substituted by the Supreme Commander when required.
2.2.1 - General of the Economy: Responsible for observing economic trends and maximizing economic benefits within the alliance. Is allowed to direct incoming aid and implement new stimulus programs.
2.2.2 - General of Foreign Affairs : Responsible for overviewing and editing proposed treaties prior to government assessment. Is allowed to perform his/her own diplomatic visits, and is also responsible for the effectiveness of all diplomats and their operations.
