Mission Statement Edit
It is the goal of the Allied Collation for International Defense, henceforth known as ACID, to become an international economic powerhouse and set new standards in how to develop nations. ACID has in place some of the best aid systems and economic guides in the cyberverse. With these tools we plan to quickly raise our members up the rankings and have them gain the knowledge they need to help our newer members. ACID will try and solve its problems with diplomacy, but if diplomacy fails our military will be quick to take action.
Through strong economies and deep pockets ACID will work towards a cemented position of power by using a strong, organized military and its democratically elected senate and chancellor.

Article VI: Rights
Members of ACID are entitled to certain rights granted by the organization and bound by certain obligations and initial requirements.
1. Any member of ACID is entitled to the protection and respect of the Coalition, and can expect aid to be approved in times of war. The right of wartime aid is forfeited if the nation in question acts without the approval and justification of the alliance.
2. Any Member in ACID has the option of running for the position of Senator. To become a Senator, your peers in the general assembly must nominate you then vote you on as a member of the Senate.
3. All members of ACID have the right of Freedom of Speech, the right to a fair trial, as well as the right to leave ACID if proper notification is given to a Senator.
Article VII: War
ACID is a very Diplomatic Alliance; Diplomacy is our first option if attacked. If Diplomacy can not change anything, and if it is out of the question, War and Military methods will be used as our secondary option. ACID forbids its members to attack a nation that is a member of an alliance, as ACID does not wish for an inter-alliance war. Any war declared by a member of ACID with out a just cause will be punished under Article VII: Justice and Law.
Any nation that attacks a member of ACID will be warned to cease the attacks immediately and offer peace. If the nation refuses to offer peace a threat shall be issued and the nations superiors (if any) will be contacted. If the aggressor does not cease his attacks and refuses to offer peace an all out attack will be launched. This attack will continue until a cease-fire is reached and reparations are paid to the ACID nation that was originally attacked.
Article VIII: Justice and Law
ACID does not take kindly to traitors, spies, and cowards. If a member of ACID refuses to attack an enemy nation if ordered to by a superior officer in the ACID Marines, a trial will be held. If the leader in question is found guilty of cowardice, his nation will be expelled from ACID and will suffer economic loses, as a Coalition Trade Embargo will be placed on them. This means that no member of ACID will be allowed to trade with the embargoed nation.
If a member of ACID is suspected to be a foreign spy, main forum sections will immediately blocked so the spy cannot view them. The Minister of Internal Affairs will investigate the spy and if the member is found to be a spy they will not receive a trial and will be treated as an enemy of the Coalition. The alliance that the spy belonged to, if any, will have any pacts with ACID revoked. The Minister of Foreign Affairs will begin diplomatic conduct with the spy’s alliance. The main goal of ACID will be to have those responsible punished. If the spy was appointed by a high ranking official and this was an approved action by the alliance, the alliance shall receive a total embargo ACID and military action may be taken.
If a member of ACID is a traitor by spying on, or abandoning ACID, that member will be dealt with the utmost severity. If the suspected nation is found to be a spy they will be dealt with in the manner described above.
If a member of ACID is found to have joined ACID with the intension of gaining protection from current enemies gained in existing wars that were started prior to them becoming a member, that member will face trial for a malicious act against ACID
In a Coalition trial the Minister of Internal Affairs will act as judge and will appoint a senator as prosecutor. The defendant shall defend their self. A jury of 7 the accused member’s peers will be chosen to view the trial and eventually make the decision of guilty or not guilty. The decision must be made unanimously, with all 7 members agreeing on a verdict. Only the MoIA, prosecutor, and jury will be able to view the trial. The jury will not be allowed to have contact with the outside world until they have come to a verdict. The verdict will be given to the MoIA and he/she will announce it to the public. The Trial will go as follows:
1. MoIA presents defendant, charges, and prosecutor. The jury remains anonymous to everyone accept the MoIA.
2. The prosecution presents the evidence against the defendant.
3. The defendant attempts to defend himself.
5. Final Comments.
6. Final Verdict.
If the defendant is found guilty they will be dealt with accordingly. If the defendant is found innocent of the charges they will be returned back into society and their life will return to normal.
Any nation of ACID may not trade with or aid an embargoed nation. If a member of ACID is found have aided or is currently trading with the embargoed nation, that person providing illegal aid will be tried as a traitor of ACID. An embargo can be placed on or lifted from a nation with the approval of the Senate.
Article IX: Foreign Policy
ACID is a very Diplomatic Alliance; Diplomacy is our first option if attacked. If Diplomacy cannot change anything, and if it is out of the question, War and Military methods will be used as our secondary option. ACID will always honor Pacts and Alliances it makes with other Alliances, and hopes other Alliances do the same.
ACID is willing to sign a NAP with any alliance that ACID considers having a good reputation and has done nothing in the past to ACID. We are more hesitant to sign a MDP with an alliance. Only alliances we plan on becoming very close allies shall have a MDP considered.
Article X: Ratification
Ratification of a new charter can take place at any time but must be passed through a ¾ vote of the General Assembly.
