For the current charter, see Charter of the New Pacific Order.

Original CharterEdit

The first charter was drafted by then-Regent Vladimir on January 28, 2006, 1 day after the founding of the New Pacific Order. When the NPO founded the New Polar Order in early 2006 this charter was adopted as their founding charter. It was in place at the NPO for over a year before being replaced by the second charter(below) on Feb 23, 2007.

Charter of the New Pacific OrderEdit

We, the undersigned nations, agree to promote national sovereignty, defend our fellow nations against outside aggression and advance the Pacifican way of life to the world.

Article I: AdmissionEdit

Any nation joining the red team and pledging an oath to the New Pacific Order (NPO) requesting membership will be admitted, provided said nation does not belong to any other alliances and is approved by the Alliance Council.

Article II: Structure of the OrderEdit

  • 1. The Body Republic

All member nations of the New Pacific Order will automatically have a seat in the Body Republic and will be corporately responsible for voting for members of the War Council and the Alliance Council. The Body Republic will also be charged with checking the authority and power of the War Council in the case of war declarations. Any member can challenge a War Council declaration of war on the floor of the Body Republic as a referendum to cease hostilities. Discussion will then take place on the floor for a period of no less than 8 hours but no more than 36 hours. If the majority (50% +1) of member nations voice support for the referendum before the 36 hour time limit is reached the motion will be considered passed and carried. If the motion fails to achieve majority before the time limit it fails.

  • 2. The Councils

The Councils of the New Pacific Order are charged with carrying out the directives of the Body Republic. Councilor elections will take place every month. Nations will be nominated within the Body Republic beginning one week before the election date and can be nominated for only one of the two Councils. At the end of the nomination period a public vote will take place by both forum poll and thread posting on the offsite forum. The top four vote recipients for each Council will be named to said Councils.

  • A. The War Council
The War Council will consist of the four elected Councilors and be chaired by the Emperor. This council will be charged with carrying out the plans for war if such action has been passed by the majority vote of the Council and not vetoed by the Emperor. This council will also be charged with developing war strategy for the alliance and awarding medals and honors to nations that have excelled in warcraft.
  • B. The Alliance Council
The Alliance Council will consist of the four elected Councilors and be chaired by the Emperor. This council will be charged with the day to day operations of the alliance, diplomacy (including the creation of ambassadors and/or embassies), implementing changes as set forth by the Body Republic and will govern the admission of new members along with the dismissal of members outside the normal expulsion terms.
  • 3. The Emperor

The Emperor is the leader of the alliance. The Emperor will chair both Councils, maintain veto power over both and has the ability to block the election of specific Councilors if he or she sees fit to do so. The Emperor serves for life or until resignation. If the Emperor resigns he or she will designate a replacement.

Article III: Expulsion from the OrderEdit

Any nation can submit a motion to expel a fellow member from the Order to the Body Republic floor. In order for the motion to carry 75% + 1 of the voting nations must vote in favor of the expulsion. There will be a time limit of 36 hours on expulsion votes. If the percentage is not reached before the time limit the motion fails. The Emperor can not be expelled from the Order unless proof of treason can be submitted. Likewise, the Emperor can pardon any nation from expulsion.

Article IV: Amendments to the CharterEdit

Any nation can submit a motion to amend the Charter to the Body Republic floor. Discussion will take place for a period of no less than 8 hours but no more than 36 hours. If a supermajority (defined herein as 75% + 1) of the member nations voice support for the amendment before the 36 hour time limit is reached then the motion will be considered passed and carried. If it does not reach the supermajority before the 36 hour limit the motion will fail.
