Coalition Against the Ideology of Nazism (CAIN)

We, the undersigned governments; mindful of the impact Nazism has on the community we all share, devoted to combating scientific racism, appalled by the glorification of Nazi Germany, determined to overcome gameplay differences, and committed to making the NationStates community more accessible; do hereby establish and join the Coalition Against the Ideology of Nazism, herein referred to as "CAIN", and agree to recognize and adhere to this Treaty and the commitments set forth within.

1. Definitions

Nazism: The ideology and practice associated with the 20th-century German Nazi Party and Nazi state, as well as other far-right groups. In the context of NationStates, it is an ideology that glorifies National Socialism or Nazi Germany and/or actively practices Nazi beliefs such as antisemitism, pseudo-scientific racism, racial hygiene, slaughter for living space, genocide, eugenics, persecution of LGBT, etc.

Nazi Region: A region recognized by CAIN as a region that practices, or has practiced, Nazism.

Nazi Collaborator: A region recognized by CAIN as a region that assists in furthering the agenda of, and/or shares core beliefs with, Nazism and/or Nazi Regions.

Signatories: The regions and organizations that sign this treaty.

On-Site Embassy: An embassy created through NationStates.

Off-Site Embassy: An embassy created on the off-site forum of a signatory region.

Inter-regional Agreement: Any Treaty, Accord, Pact, or Agreement with another region recognized by a signatory's government as legally binding.

Military Assistance: In the context of NationStates, military assistance shall be described as participation in raiding, defending, assisting in delegate transfers, or any other military action that benefits another region.

2. Membership Administration

(a) Signatories shall not maintain off-site or on-site embassies with Nazi Regions.

(b) Signatories shall not enter into inter-regional agreements with Nazi Regions.

(c) In order to be recognized as a signatory, regions must ratify this treaty in concordance with their internal laws. Once ratified, regions must send a legal representative to signify their acceptance of this treaty within the sub-forum of the Europeian off-site forum where the original treaty will be maintained for all signatories.

(d) Any signatory may nominate a region that meets the definition, as described by this Treaty, to be a Nazi Region. Such nominations must be approved by a vote of two-thirds of signatories before being officially designated as such by CAIN.

(e) Any signatory may nominate a region that aids in spreading the beliefs of Nazism to be considered a Nazi Collaborator. Such nominations must be approved by a vote of two-thirds of signatories before being officially designated as such by CAIN.

(f) Any region may be removed from the officially designated list of Nazi Regions by a vote of three-fourths of signatories.

(g) Any region which voluntarily participates in a military operation alongside, or possesses an on-site embassy with, a Nazi Region shall be officially designated as Nazi Collaborators.

(h) Any region officially designated as a Nazi Collaborator shall be subjected to the same clauses as Nazi Regions with the exception of Section 2(g).

(i) Europeia shall maintain a list of all officially designated Nazi Regions alongside the original CAIN treaty.

(j) No region designated as a Nazi Region may join CAIN as a signatory.

(k) Any signatory may be removed as a signatory by a vote of three-fourths of remaining signatories.

(l) The highest executive authority of a signatory region, or an internally selected representative, will be recognized as that signatory's voting member for the votes mentioned in this treaty.

(m) All votes mentioned in this treaty shall be announced one week in advance of the voting process, and shall last five days.

(n) In order for the voting process to take place, a simple majority of signatories must indicate their presence. Any signatory which is not present during the voting process will have their vote counted as an abstention.

(o) The votes mentioned in this treaty shall take place on the off-site forum of Europeia in a sub-forum contained next to the original treaty. This sub-forum will be restricted to legal representatives of signatories.

3. Functions

(a) Signatories shall not provide military assistance to any region officially designated as a Nazi Region.

(b) Signatories shall append a document to the treaty, which may be amended by a motion supported by a majority of signatories. Within this document will be listed a number of Standardized Responses which signatories are encouraged but not required to use in the intended circumstances.

(c) The circumstances for which a standardized response shall be listed will include, but not be limited to, the following:
(i) A Nazi Region acting militarily against a signatory,
(ii) A Nazi Region participating within a military operation of a non-Nazi Region, and
(iii) A Signatory acting militarily against a Nazi Region.

(d) Signatories commit to working together, when consistent with internal policy, to oppose Nazi Regions through military means. This commitment includes, but is not limited to:
(i) Invading Nazi holdings,
(ii) Liberating regions raided by Nazi Regions, and
(iii) Defending against raids involving Nazi Regions.

(e) Signatories commit to working together, when consistent with internal policy, to oppose Nazi Regions through Security Council means. This commitment includes, but is not limited to:
(i) Opposing commendation proposals of Nazi regions and players,
(ii) Cooperation on condemnation proposals of Nazi regions and players,
(iii) Supporting defensive liberation proposals for regions raided by Nazis, and
(iv) Supporting offensive liberation proposals against Nazi Regions.

(f) The signatories of this treaty shall maintain a thread on the Gameplay section of the NationStates forums in which standardized responses shall be posted. For the sake of transparency, the original treaty shall serve as the first post in this thread.

4. General Provisions

(a) Signatories recognize that signing this treaty does not make them allies of the other signatories.

(b) Signatories recognize that signing this treaty does not signify political, diplomatic, or gameplay agreement with their fellow signatories except on the subject of Nazism and Nazi Regions.

(c) This treaty is considered legally binding upon a signatory's completion of the requirements described in Section 2(c).

(d) Should a region wish to resign as a signatory of CAIN, they may do so by going through the process of repealing this treaty in concordance with their internal laws and disseminating a public notice of its repeal. Such notices must be released in a way that reaches a majority of signatories.

(e) Any region wishing to join as a signatory of CAIN after the initial conference on this treaty may do so by receiving sponsorship from two signatories. Sponsored regions will then be voted on by all signatories. Should they receive a simple majority of the vote, regions must complete the requirements described elsewhere in this treaty.

(f) This treaty may be amended by a vote of three-fourths of signatories. Such amendments must then be ratified by the signatories before being considered binding. Amendments will be announced in the CAIN Gameplay thread, after which signatories have two weeks to decide whether they wish to ratify the amendment or not. If no progress has been made on the ratification process after those two weeks the region will no longer be considered a signatory.

(g) Any signatory may opt-out of ratifying amendments to CAIN. After doing so, they will no longer be considered a signatory.

(h) Any signatory which misses two votes consecutively will have their signatory status suspended until such time that they request to be returned to active status. During this suspension, they will not be counted as a signatory for clauses mentioned in this treaty.


Current Signatories:

Albion
Arda en Estel
Balder
Europeia
Equilism
Hearth of Hestia
Kingdom of Alexandria
Kingdom of Great Britain
Lazarus
Osiris
Taijitu
The Democratic Union of Republics
The East Pacific
The Internationale
The Land of Kings and Emperors
The North Pacific
The Order of the Grey Wardens
The Red Fleet
The South Pacific
The Universal Allegiance
The West Pacific
United Kingdom
Valhalla
Yggdrasil




This treaty was created with the purpose of banding regions together against an ideology that we all share disdain for. Regardless of the nature of its inhabitants, whether they be trolls or Nazis, we believe that the Nazi regions of NationStates perpetuate a hate that should not go unopposed. We believe that we have stood divided against this hate for far too long, opting to stand on our own against this discrimination rather than putting aside our differences to come together.

This thread shall be used to post updates about the Coalition's efforts and news about its workings. Any region wishing to join CAIN need only read the treaty, fulfill the requirements of the treaty, and let me know to be added as a signatory.

Presentation of Order of Partisan Star to Brunhilde


The Admiralty Board of The Red Fleet has approved the presentation of the Order of Partisan Star to CAIN organizer Brunhilde. The description of the award says that it is "awarded to Red Fleet sailors for proven bravery and dedication in the antifascist fight and acting in a spirit of cross-regional solidarity." While Brunhilde is not a sailor of the Fleet, her cross-regional solidarity is made evident by the success of this coalition.

CAIN Concludes Inaugural Operation

Greetings!

As of today, the Coalition Against the Ideology of Nazism has completed its Inaugural Operation with the successful passwording of The NSIA. The region, which had previously pushed to "save the white race," was seized by a coalition of militaries hailing from Albion, Europeia, HYDRA Command, The Internationale Brigades, The Invaders, Kingdom of Alexandria, The Kingdom of Great Britain, Lazarus, The Order of the Grey Wardens, Osiris, North Korea, The North Pacific, The Red Fleet, Revolutionary Socialist League, The South Pacific, 10000 Islands, United Kingdom, The MT Army, and The West Pacific. Eighty four updaters started off an Operation that would see a total of one hundred and seventy two endorsements over its two week run time as the Coalition ensured that the outcome was never in doubt.

The Operation stands as the largest cooperative military event in years and stands as an example of the Coalition's ability to stand for what it believes in. Going forward, the Coalition hopes to see further cooperation of the same kind as we continue to stand united against a hateful ideology.

Participants were awarded the Wiesenthal Fortitude Medal for their efforts ensuring the success of this operation, with all who participated under CAIN's banner being free to use it.

The Coalition will begin voting on the first set of Nazi Regions in one week's time. This first group of Nazi Region will remain small in order to focus on the largest advocates of Nazism in NationStations. The initial list being voted on will include the following four regions:

Nazi Europa
KAISERREICH
The Iron Guard
National Socialist Ministries
Brunhilde

Thanks for showing interest!

Unfortunately, beyond the complications of having a signatory that is a single nation, CAIN requires a potential signatory to get the sponsorship of at least two signatories before receiving a majority vote.

In the current signatories list, it's The Land of Kings and Emperors, not Land of Kings and Emperors. Sorry for nitpicking. :P

The Commonwealth of Crowns has an embassy with Kaiserreich, and Right to Life is building an embassy with The Iron Guard.
The text of the treaty suggests that both would become ipso facto "collaborators" if the proposed list is approved ("Any region which ... possesses an on-site embassy with a Nazi Region shall be officially designated as Nazi Collaborators").

Would they be notified of the implications of the treaty and given time to fix their situation, or could they immediately be subject to closure of embassies, etc.? (Many CAIN signatories have relations with Commonwealth of Crowns and Right to Life, or at least maintain onsite embassies with them).

I think you might want to change your name, because now your initials spell out the name of a Biblical murderer.
Capitalism, single-payer healthcare, pro-choice, LGBT rights, progressive personal taxation, low corporate tax, pro-business law, welfare for those in need.
Communism, socialism, Nazism, edgism, dogmatic statements, multiculturalism, most of Abrahamic-derived morality (esp. as law), welfare for those not in need.

One of the core pillars of CAIN is the push for the diplomatic isolation of Nazi Regions. Since this is one of the core principle's of the Coalition, the treaty was designed so that signatories would remove any embassy they had with Nazi Collaborators.

Any region which wishes to remain unaffected by this section of the treaty would be free to withdrawal their embassies with the Nazi Regions. If they are in the process of withdrawing their embassy by the time that the vote has finished they will not be impacted by the clauses of this treaty.

If a region has an embassy with a region with an embassy which is a collaborator, are collaborators as we well?

To clarify my regionmate's question: Our region, the Federation of Fictitious States, has an embassy with the Federation of Greater German Republics, which has an embassy with KAISERREICH (which is one of the first four regions on the "Nazi Region" list, which will be voted on next week).

I imagine "no", because:

No, you wouldn't be considered a Nazi Collaborator for possessing an embassy with a Nazi Collaborator. Nazi Collaborators are those limited to those directly tied to Nazism and Nazi Regions.
