Section III: Government Rules for Convenience and Openness
I: Votes in the Government Chambers have to be done by signing the topic with your name and position, voting in polls may not be done. This is to ensure that voting is done in a fair way and to make sure that the Government makes a more balanced decision.
II: Any vote must have a majority of the total amount of the Another Alliance Government members. This is to make sure that no policies get set in the alliance that doesn't have sufficient support.
III: A treaty vote must have at least the votes of the Triumvirate and the Minister of Foreign Affairs. Also at least 66% of the Government members must sign a treaty before it is accepted. This is because treaties have a major effect on alliance's and therefore it should have a bigger acceptance then normal votes.
A treaty that has a mandatory defensive clause in it has to be posted 24 hours before it will be officially accepted, so that the members of the alliance can give their opinion on it. If 40% of the opinions ventilated are against the treaty, the treaty must be reviewed by the Government if it really is in the best interest of the alliance. These rules are here because the membership should ventilate their opinion on the alliance's they will have to defend.
IV: Another Alliance is not allowed to sign too many treaties, as that will make that we have too many obligation to other alliances. Another Alliance doesn't want to be in a situation where we have to choose between allies. The number of treaties will not solidly be set, but this article serves as a constant reminder to the Another Alliance Government. Treaties also have to be evaluated at least twice a year, so that no treaties exist in which no friendship remains.
V: The adding of extra forums or subforums is only allowed to be done by the Triumvirate or with the agreement of either of them. This is to ensure that no unneeded forums get added and the Another Alliance forum remain as effective as possible.
Section IV: Non-government Positions and Duties
I: There are multiple non-government positions that help the Another Alliance government with making the alliance the best possible place for its members. All non-government positions are non elected. The non government positions consist of the Deputies and Special Interest Groups.
II: The Deputies. This position will act as a deputy or a special interest post under the Ministers. A Deputy position can be made by the discretion of the Ministers and it is a position that will last until the next election or until the Deputy choose to step down. Deputies will help the Ministers in their work and will have as much responsibility as the Ministers give them. Deputies do not have access to the Government Chambers and cannot make decisions on their own. They do however follow the decisions of the Minister above them and provide them with their asked and unasked opinions and advise.
III: Any Minister is allowed to create a Special Interest Group where any member can sign up for. Examples of Special Interest Groups are recruiters, diplomats, banks or anything else. A special subforum will be made that is only visible for members of the Special Interest Group and the Government. Membership of such a group starts after asking the Minister above it (or after invitation) and is for as long as the person wants to be a part of the Special Interest Group.

The sign up period will start one week before the ending of the Minister cycle and will run for three days. After this there will be four days of voting after which the person with the highest number of votes will win the election. In the case of a draw those persons will be added in another cycle of voting that will run for two days.
II: If for any of the Minister positions no Another Alliance member is running, the Another Alliance Government may decide to choose a member of the alliance or divide the responsibilities between themselves.
III: Any member of good standing can level impeachment charges on a Minister, Deputy or other appointed position.

IV: If a Minister is not active and haven't posted for at least 7 days (or has announced that he will not post for 7 days) in the Government Chambers the Triumvirate may temporary remove the Minister from office and replace him with another member. The removed Minister may claim back his position when he gets active again.
Section VI: War and Defense
I: The primary concern of Another Alliance is the protection of each nation within the alliance itself. All nations are required to come to the defense of an alliance member and to the Another Alliance allies if requested by either the Triumvirate, the Minister of Defense, or a potential Deputy of Defense. However, it is recommended a peaceful solution be sought out as soon as possible before the aggressive nation is hammered into the ground.
II: The Another Alliance allows its members to raid and spy on other nations except for nations that are in alliances of at least 5 members and do not have a protectorate. All raids must be approved by a member of the Triumvirate or the Minister of Defense. If a member does attack a nation that may not be attacked and violates this charter with its attack, Another Alliance will not help the nation financial or military and the Triumvirate or the Minister of Defense may order the ruler to offer peace and pay reparations to the attacked nation. All weapons available to Another Alliance members are authorized for use on raids EXCEPT your nuclear arsenal. Nuclear release must be approved by Triumvirate or the Minister of Defense.
III: A full alliance war can only take place after a vote by the Another Alliance Government in an offensive situation or a Declaration of War on an Another Alliance ally. The vote will require a 2/3 majority vote from the Triumvirate. If Another Alliance itself is attacked with an official posted Declaration of War all members may retaliate the attack.
IV: The use of nuclear weapons as a first strike is not allowed, unless a majority vote has taken place in the Another Alliance Government. If an Another Alliance member has been attacked by a nuclear attack, the ruler is allowed to strike the nation back with nuclear weapons.
V: Another Alliance Nuclear Weapons are a DETERRENT.
VI: Another Alliance Nuclear Weapons are there to cause maximum damage to enemy nations. In the event a nuclear first strike is deemed necessary… We at Another Alliance hope you are on our side.

The submitted amendment must be discussed on for at least three days, after which the person who submitted the amendment may call a vote. The period in which can be voted is a period of four days after which 66% of the voting members must have voted for amending the revision before it can be implanted.
Section VIII: Elastic Clause
