1. The Land of Kings and Emperors also signed and ratified the Declaration on behalf of its subsidiary regions, including: Norwood; Polis; Niso; Ilum; Maxonberg; The Land of Dragonia; Imperial Elite; Moldavia; Tartarus; Vienna; Red Liberty Alliance and Munster.




Following the UCR-UCR Conference, this is the document that we came up with.

This Conference was held on the Europeian forums and was attended by Delegates from a diverse group of regions.

The Declaration seeks to prevent recruitment amongst Signatories in order to preserve the ability of user-created regions to grow and maintain a population.

The sitting Chief of State of Europeia serves as the Registrar of the Declaration, and maintains a publicly accessible copy of the Declaration and a List of Signatories both here and in Europeia. The Chief of State is the legal successor to the President in all matters of foreign affairs.




Any user-created region is eligible to sign the Declaration.

In order to join the Declaration, you need to sign and ratify it according to the Laws of your region.

Often, this means signature by the Head of Government and ratification by the legislature, but this varies amongst regions.

After this has been done, you need to inform the Registrar that you have joined the Declaration. There are two ways in which you can do this.

1) Telegram the nation listed as the Chief of State in the World Factbook Entry in Europeia with the name of the region or regions which have signed and ratified the Declaration. The Founder of Europeia, King HEM may also be contacted if any issues arise in communicating with the registrar.
2) Post in this thread with the name of the region or regions which have signed and ratified the Declaration.

If a super-regional entity has signed the Declaration on behalf of its component regions, you must also list all of its component regions when you register as a Signatory.

Please note that when you inform the Registrar that you have signed and ratified the Declaration, you make a legally binding statement.

Please do not do this before performing signature and ratification according to the official procedures.

But then, you're officially a Signatory of the Declaration - congratulations! You'll need to make sure that your region is compliant with the Declaration, and remains compliant into the future.

Thank you!

- The Government of Europeia

One does wonder how LKE could sign and ratify a document on behalf of a region like Moldavia which very much does not seem to be a subsidiary of it...

Wishful thinking? Or maybe they're the NS equivalent of England as described by Eddie Izzard. :P

Not sure why Spiritus ain't on this, we internally ratified and then signed it via Europeia's forum years ago.

Also can't wait for the ~6 months tops it takes for Enadia to do some stupid shit and recruit from UCRs again.
