The Red Nation Union was a small alliance, based primarily upon the red sphere. Small and relatively unknown, RNU's only treaty during it's existence was with the New Pacific Order in the form of a protectorate-technology dealing writ, created to mutually benefit both parties.
RNU was founded on December 12, 2009 by BlueMoon of Albert. Initial growth was slow, and tech raids were quite common. It was only upon signing the protectorate treaty with the New Pacific Order that such events decreased in regularity.
Charter of PrinciplesEdit
The Red Nation Union Principles is the founding document upon which the government of the alliance is organised, and the defining treaty in terms of national rights and responsibilities of member states.
Red Nation Union PrinciplesEdit
The Red Nation Union Principles are the founding laws of the alliance. All nations within the Red Nation Union agree to abide by these rules when they apply. Violation of these principles will result in punishment.
Article I: Nation RightsEdit

Any member nation found to be bullying or threatening another member will be subject to reprimand. 3: All member nations have the right to freedom of expression within the alliance’s boards. 4: All member nations have the right to secede from the alliance during times of peace.
Article II: Nation ResponsibilitiesEdit
1: As a basic principle of alliance, member states are expected to come to the military aid of other members in the event of their attack, and to the defence of the alliance as a whole. 2: Members are expected to conduct themselves in a dignified manner when interacting with non-affiliated nations.

Article IV: WarEdit
Red Nation Union is an independent alliance which abides by a policy of general non-aggression, and all members are forbidden from engaging in wars of aggression against nations with an alliance affiliation without consent from a government member of Ministerial rank or higher.
Section A: Alliance Defence All member nations must belong to a defensive squad. In times of war, it is required that member nations report to the Ministry of Defence for assignment and instruction. Nuclear first-strike is permitted in defensive war.
Section B: Alliance Offence Member nations are permitted to engage in raids against unaligned nations, and nations holding membership in alliances of five nations or less.
Article V: Foreign PolicyEdit
Foreign Policy is set by the Council of Three, and directed by the Foreign Minister. Treaties with foreign powers can be negotiated by alliance Ambassadors, acting on behalf of the Council. However, actual ratification and nullification can only be authorised by the Council, or Chair independently.
Article VI: AmendmentsEdit
Amendments to these laws can be proposed by any member of the alliance, which is ultimately subject to vote by the general membership. A proposition is considered to have passed only upon achieving a 60% majority vote in favour. Any amendment can be blocked by majority vote of the Council of Three, or by direct intervention of the Chair.
