Treaty Establishing the Galactic Confederacy
by The Free Peoples of the Galaxy
WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, DETERMINE
TO SAVE THE GALAXY FROM THE SCOURGE OF WAR
1) Not to attack other states of the Galactic Confederacy.
2) To support states of the Galactic Confederacy that are attacked by non-members.
3) In the event of conflict between states of the Galactic Confederacy, a tribunal will be called to resolve the dispute. A tribunal is made up of all states of the Galactic Confederacy – excepting those states party to a dispute and any states that have lost voting rights (see paragraph 4). Each state has one vote in a tribunal and decisions are taken by simple majority. The tribunal’s decision is binding.
4) Any state of the Galactic Confederacy that launches an unsanctioned attack on another state of the Galactic Confederacy will immediately lose its voting rights in tribunals and become the common enemy of all states. If they then agree to sit before a tribunal of all other states, then hostilities against them will be ceased and the tribunal will decide their punishment. They will then, having complied with the tribunal, be restored to full voting rights.
5) An electoral list will be drawn up, based on time of entry into the Galactic Confederacy. The first signatory of the treaty is placed first, the second placed second, etc.
6) A President of the Galactic Confederacy will be elected for a term of four production turns by universal suffrage.
Three members are allowed to run in elections based on the order of the electoral list, with the other members consigned to voting.
7) A simple majority vote of no-confidence can remove the President from office.
8) The Galactic President is in charge of all foreign policy decisions for the Confederacy – including declaring war and negotiating peace. In addition, the Galactic President is responsible for organising the bureaucratic activities of the Confederacy (e.g. organising and chairing tribunals, etc.).
