Admission of ToolendusiaEdit
Admission of MertrotainiaEdit
The TDA is currently in talks with another alliance in order to merge. This would quadruple the size of TDA, while keeping the High Council in power.
History of TDAEdit
The Darwin Alliance was originally founded by Across the Universe, as a small alliance, with no major intentions of increasing size. Soon after, DieJed, a friend of Across the Universe, joined the alliance. Eventually, DieJed recruited Idmor, who recruited 3 new members, amongst which were Tripnosis and Toolendusia.
Creation of a ConstitutionEdit
Soon after Idmor joined, plans began for the creation of a Constitution. Originally, the Constitution named all five original founders as members of the High Council. Before the Constitution could be ratified, however, DieJed quit Cybernations, sending shock waves throughout the organization. This required another member to step down, so Tripnosis has stepped down until another nation joins the High Council. The Constitutionwas ratified and took full effect of law on April 6, 2007.
Toolenduso proposed to the High Council after the attack on IdMor the idea of the alliance fighting against rogues. When Across the Universe and IdMor endorsed the idea, he began including it in recruitment messages.
Soon after Toolenduso sent a recruitment message out to all people with Darwin somewhere in their nation or ruler names, Darwin333 sent a message back saying he could not join the alliance but was happy to help and sent $3 million in foreign aid. The High Council is still debating over what is to be done with it, but one of the more popular decisions is to split it up among all the nations of the alliance.
After this recruitment drive, Toolenduso posted a recruitment thread on the forums of mafiascum.net, and 7 new members joined, doubling the alliance in size. All have officially joined.
Soon after, the idea of actively fighting rogues was discarded by the "Clean Up Your" Act.
On June 20, 2007, The Darwin Alliance made the official decision to move from Red Team to Brown Team, because of the Moldavi Doctrine.
Article I: Admission
Article II: Structure of the Alliance
Article III: Ratification
Article I: AdmissionEdit
Any nations shall be admitted into The Darwin Alliance (henceforth referred to as TDA). However, in order to become a protected nation, with the full benefits granted therein, the nation must register on the forum and officially announce their joining of the Alliance. Provided the nation doesn’t belong to any other alliances, any member of the High Council may approve their request, and add them to the official list of members.
Article II: Structure of the AllianceEdit
The High CouncilEdit
The High Council is the leading authority of TDA. As such, the High Council has the sole power over all external and internal matters of TDA, although the Council may delegate such powers as is necessary. The High Council will appoint all members to all positions, and can create or destroy other councils at will. The High Council is also in charge of selecting a member nation to run for senator on the red team. If another council has an irresolvable dispute, they must ask the High Council to resolve that dispute. The council can choose whether or not they will hear the dispute. A simple majority vote is required in order to hear a dispute. The council will begin at a total of three members, although that can be changed if the council wishes. However, the total number of voting nations on the High Council shall never be an even number. It shall always be odd. At the writing of this constitution, the members of the High Council are: David Morris, Ben Miller, and Jed Bradley.
The trade council shall be in charge of working out trades, both trades between nations, and trades between alliances. They shall also be in charge of foreign aid to/from the Alliance, and keeping track of where Alliance money is stored. Any member nation may apply to the Trade Council for either a long-term or short-term loan. Long-term loans must be paid back with interest, and are to be used for the development of a nation. Short-term loans, however, do not require interest, and are for dealing with emergencies (ex. Military invasion).
The war council is designed to protect the Alliance. The war council has two duties: to organize defenses of member nations and to authorize attacks. TDA is a peaceful alliance, and member nations are strictly forbidden from attacking other member nations. Unprovoked attacks on non-member nations are also forbidden. However, it is understood by the Alliance that certain situations may arise in which an attack is necessary. In this case, a member nation may come to the War Council for permission to attack. Declarations of war against a single nation require only a majority vote of the war council. However, declarations of war against other alliances require a 2/3rds vote of the High Council. In the case of a member nation being attacked by another, non-member nation, the member nation can come to the War Council for assistance. The War Council shall act immediately, and send a notice of intent to the attacking nation, demanding an immediate cessation of all aggressive activities. If this is declined, or not answered within 24 hours, the War Council has multiple options: it can appeal to the nation’s alliance, or, if the nation has no alliance, the Council can order a full-on war. In this case, the Commander in Chief shall organize a response to this threat. Note that in times of war, nations may be required to give sizable amounts of foreign aid to the defending country. To the maximum point possible, this aid shall be paid back in the enemy’s terms of surrender. However, without a surrender, all aid will be considered a donation to the Alliance, and member nations will be paid back to the best of the Alliance’s ability.
The Recruitment Council’s goal is to expand the Alliance. The Recruitment Council shall be in charge of running advertising campaigns and answering questions about the Alliance on the forums. It will be The Recruitment Council's duty to keep the wikia article on TDA updated.
The Document Council is the discussion place for all documents. Note that while any member of a Council can comment on documents, the final decision on all documents will be made by the High Council. If the debates on the Document Council get out of order, the Council will be shut down, and debates will continue in the High Council.
The Diplomacy Council is in charge of all agreements between alliances. They are responsible for solving any disputes which may come up between member nations.. In addition, they are responsible for setting up embassies with all large alliances on the Red team. They will work closely with the war council in order to solve issues, and to prepare surrenders for enemy countries.
Article III: RatificationEdit
This document will become law once it has been ratified by all three members of the High Council.
Article IV: AmendmentsEdit
The High Council may amend this constitution with a 2/3rds majority vote.
I, Timothy Ulrich, ratify the Constitution written up by David Morris.
