The Ellorea Commercial Union [Attn: Ellorea]

Postby Minnysota » Sat Mar 31, 2012 4:17 pm

Note: This trade alliance, while mainly based out of Ellorea, is not closed off to non-Ellorean nations. You may join as a full-time member if you agree to the rules, or be a partner state if some rules do not sit well with you. The logo is courtesy of New Azura.

The parties of Sensal, Altimaea, and Minnysota hereby declare the existence of the Ellorean Commercial Union in order to set up a free market in which goods and services between our nations may flow freely. Through this union, we acknowledge the economic liberties and rights of member and partner states to trade without the threat of tariffs or unjust prices. Therefore, we lay down these rules that all member states must recognize in order to protect these economic liberties and rights:

1. All member states must agree to abolish all tariffs on goods and services between member nations.

2. Member nations may not force unfair prices upon other member states.

3. If a member state succumbs to financial crisis, it is the responsibility of other member nations to step up and help with foreign loans and donations with low interest levied on these acts of charity.

4. Outsourcing of jobs between member states shall not be forbidden under any circumstance.

5. A state wishing to gain admission to the ECU must go through a vigorous application process upon which member states have one (1) vote for or against and partner states have half (1/2) vote for or against admission.

6. All partner states or applicants must formally agree to the above terms in order to gain full membership into the Ellorean Commercial Union. If only a few rules are recognized, the title of "partner state" will be placed upon the specific party.


Application Process

In order to be admitted into the Ellorean Commercial Union, an applicant must receive an approval from two-thirds (2/3) of the Union. Full member states will have one vote in favor of or against an applicant, while a partner state will receive half (1/2) a vote for or against an applicant. This is to ensure that partner states are properly represented in the Union's affairs.

In order to apply to the ECU, a communique or an application must be submitted, depending on your preference. The format for the application is as listed:

To the great and noble lords of the Ellorea Commercial Union, I bid you tidings of peace and prosperity on this most glorious and providential day. My government, in keeping with the highest traditions of economic prosperity and political virtue, have sought opportunities to integrate our national resources, both materiel and the sweat of our collective brow, in order to best contribute to this, our quiet Earth. In the past several months, our country has taken immeasurable strides to ensure that the Azuran people would have a presence all across the world. And as we come to the matter of this missive, I must profess: the specter of assuming formal diplomatic relations with one of Gholgoth's closet neighboring regions would indeed be worthy of our attention. It is with this purpose that I conduct this formal missive.

And as an established economic power, by the virtue of our belief in the Cailene Codice by which this Government stands, it is our moral duty and our solemn obligation to assist other young economic powers find their footing in a most competitive world. This is the nature of which our request is lodged. We shall be obliged to follow all rules set forth by this grand Charter. In good faith, we pray it meets a satisfactory end. We thank you for your consideration, and look forward to your response shortly.

From the Directorate of the Foreign Ministry



Dear Chairman of ECU,

The Citizens Federation of Sturmia's Parliament has convened and voted on entering this alliance. The vote which took place on April 14, 2012 has come back with a huge portion of the Parliament agreeing that this is a wise move on establishing a well-pronounced trade. The Sturmian Federation has had periods of martial law in which free trade was often the target of. However, with the re-election of Chancellor-Marshal William Shredder, the Sturmian fatherland has removed all aspects of the Martial Law and now moves for the ECU.


Nation Name: Citizens Federation of Sturmia
Economy Type: Mixed Econmy [mostly capitalist, with a bit of militaristic and socialistic traits]
GDP: 34 million
GDPPC: 74,000
Currency: Citizens Dollar (C$)
Currency Value (relative to USD): 1 Citizens Dollar = $1.7050
Goods/Services that can be offered to the ECU: Weapons manufacturing, Iron, and Assorted Metals
Reasons for joining: To maintain trade with the world and keep the economy alive.


Signed,
Edmund Schlieffen,
Director-Marshal of the
Directorate of the Foreign Ministry

In the Amyclae the kinship between religion and race is ultimately an alliance of convenience rationalized by both sides. Their enemy is, like many similar ideologies, the disaster of moral and philosophical reasoning that has gone by the moniker subjectivism. The assessment of both parties' was that the last three hundred years had seen, throughout Ellorea, a gradual disintegration of spiritual and social life. The manifestation of subjective criticism is the source of all the chief evils. The insidious influence of subjective thought caused the rise of secular nationalism, the dissolution of the harmony between the two faces of God (faith and reason), the increasingly fragmented nature of moral authority and, of course, the greatest evil of all: democracy. Moreover, what each side sees in each other is the shared antipathy toward the erosion of morality, the common respect for law, and the protection of communal values. The leaders of the Amyclaic race see in their religious opposites, and vice versa, the means for which their jealously guarded domain can be kept united. Religious conviction divides the race from mixing, and the unity of the race provides for only one 'sanctioned' religion.

Amid this backdrop comes the invitation to join the Ellorea Commercial Union, an offer that is accepted. Both sides to the tenuous balance of power within the Amyclae see many of their common assumptions reflected in the creation of a economic association. First, the content of countless press campaigns, pamphlets, sermons, conference resolutions and proposals against "trash and filth" can find a wider audience. Second, economic unity within a larger framework continually eliminates the significance of the individual. A boon to both stated ideologies. In the words of Bishop Lor'al, "There is a false sense of freedom and equality in liberal society that, in its celebration of the individual's economic success, ignores God's own created arrangements in the natural of race."

Most of all, the unity of chiefly capitalist economies convergence acquired a tone that was beyond mundane political convenience. Within Amyclaic domestic politics, as much as it can be described as 'politics,' the vote from the Systasine Council (and the Despota himself) came with a significant amount of ideological baggage. It was more than "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." To many in the Amyclae, foreign policy always has a providential aspect. While pitting together a group of nations seems to be more of a question of economics, the highest echelons see it as a valiant stand against faithless compromises and moral erosion of modern liberalism and its communist offspring. To understand the affirmation, an objective observer must realize that the acquiescence of the Amyclae has arisen out of a rejection of principles; not an acceptance of the others'.


Nation Name: The Amyclae
Economy Type: Mixed economy
GDP: $31.342 Trillion U.S.D.
GDPPC: $48,440.80 U.S.D.
Currency: The Amyclam
Currency Value (relative to USD): र1.00 AYM = $.50 U.S.D.
Goods/Services that can be offered to the ECU: Cheap labor, cheaper environmental fines and the cheapest energy.
Reasons for joining: See above.

    The Imperial Government, in line with the short and long term strategic and economic goals of the Righteous Imperial Dominion; have deemed it to be in the nation's best interests that the Dominion seek a formal observer chair in the Ellorean Commercial Union, henceforth refereed to as ECU. The Dominion has strong trade and diplomatic relationships with many of the current members of the ECU and the Imperial Government believes that the attainment of a formal observational role for the Dominion would help improve these relationships. Furthermore, the attainment of said formal observational role is also considered by the Imperial Government to be a provisional step towards the Dominion joining this illustrious body. Thus in conclusion; the Imperial Government would like to ask the leading council of the ECU if it is indeed possible for the Dominion to be granted a formal observational role within the ECU and what measures this would require.

Foreign Barbarians,

The abundant and ever-flowing resources of the Joseon Dynasty seem to be drawing some attention from the foreign barbarians. While our venerable Emperor tends to shun most associations with foreigners, under immense foreign pressure, we have decided to lodge an application for the Ellorea Commercial Union.

There are obvious conditions that must be accepted for us to consider entering this union. We reject all of the rules listed in the charter. The Joseon Dynasty has no interest in withdrawing our protectionist economic policies. The potential for our markets to become flooded with inferior foreign products, and the cultural corruption associated with that, is undesirable. Furthermore, the Joseon Dynasty shall never relinquish our economic sovereignty; forcing our prices to conform to foreign demands would undermine our strict principles self-determination. It is a slippery slope.

We have no interest in assisting nations whose own recklessness has landed them in economic ruin. Proper and frugal economic management is a core responsibility and source of pride for all nations; becoming a weak and dependent parasite is not conducive to proper statecraft. We shall not be a desperate recipient, nor a willing donor, to such causes. The last rule conflicts with our political situation. Emigration and immigration are banned in the Joseon Dynasty, so outsourcing in any direction is, and shall forever be, forbidden.

With that clarified, we can offer agricultural products, lumber and natural minerals to the members of this union. We will not be offering any of the Joseon Dynasty's man-made products, as our cultural output and influence is not to spread beyond our borders.

Authorised with the seal of the venerable Joseon Emperor,
Emperor Seonjo.

FOR: Ellorea Commercial Union

SUBJECT:Membership within Aforesaid

We have always sympathized with states seeking to open their borders and those of their neighbors to freedom of trade, and are pleased to acknowledge our membership within the Ellorea Commercial Union for these purposes. Santheres has always held to having the fewest possible barriers to trade, and maintains neither tariffs nor embargoes against those states with which we are not in open conflict, and is pleased to have reciprocation guaranteed from the other states which claim membership in the union.

It should come as no great news to anyone the strength and size of the economy of the Noble Republic, nor should its efforts to help those states in financial crisis be forgotten. The official statement to our public has been made, and support for the union has been seen nationwide. We will not speak of any moral obligations, but we can see that this union is nothing but beneficial for a state such as ours.

We look forward to our future together.

Membership application





Greetings,

First and foremost, please allow me to introduce myself, most honourable extraordinaries and plenipotentiaries of the Ellorean Commercial Union. I am Julius Frej Shriver, and it is in my capacity therein to officially represent the Nineteen United Provinces government. I would like to thank you on behalf of the Foreign & Trade Office of the nineteen countries, for the attentive correspondence of your represented organisation pertaining to this missive, reciprocately written personally toward your desk.

As you may be aware, over the past 400 years, the gradual amalgamation of the nineteen united provinces' Crown Commonwealth Realms and Overseas Empire has seen Yohannes' development as one of the world's major powers with strong cultural, economic, maritime and political influence throughout 12 continents and regions. It was disbanded and abolished during the late 20th century. As of the present, the Yohannesphere extend over 381,532,173 km2 in approximate total area, spread geopolitically throughout Adrastos, Ellorea, Gholgoth, Greater Dienstad, Irkalla, Minyang, Lucerna, Rushmore, Sapphire, Sondria, Tetrakon and Varathron.

The past thirty years of economic development, expansion and growth saw the rise of various Yohannesian private businesses, symbolised and led by the island nation's two largest export-oriented companies and multinational industrial giants; that of VMK Aktiengesellschaft and Royal Beaufort Shipwrights Guild, seen as a period of unprecedented Yohannesian engineering and export-oriented economic miracles, followed by the 1990s with the start of Yohannes’ rise to international banking and financial prominence, this time led again by another two of its largest corporations, that of the Yohannesische Bundesbank and Yohannesische Börse AG. By the end of the 20th century, Yohannesian direct and indirect investments were made throughout more than 200 nations across the world. Over 10,000 major foreign companies operated throughout the Yohannesian home island economy.

It is with the above explanation in mind that the Republic of the Nineteen United Provinces, signatory of more than 800 nations in exporting, financial and diplomatic agreements and establishment, has historically mantained her international economic position in the world, and as the appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Nineteen United Provinces government, henceforth this missive shall convey the interest of the Republic of the Nineteen United Provinces toward its membership within the commercial union organisation of Ellorean nations, officially known thereunto as that of the Ellorean Commercial Union.

Honourable extraordinaries and plenipotentiaries, I hope that the attachment and information written above thereunto shall favourably conclude and provide a resolute answer and assurance toward your represented organisation in finality.



Sincerely,

The Fascist Dictatorship Of The Greater Aryan Race



To: The Representative of the Ellorean Commercial Union
From: Reich Minister Gottfried von Zinck, Reich Ministry of the Economy

Subject: Entry into the ECU

Honourary Sir,

On behalf of the Reich Chancellor and Fuhrer, Bogislav Friedrich Wilhelm, of the Fascist Dictatorship of The Greater Aryan Race, it is my duty to convey to you the Greater Aryan Race's interest in participation within the Ellorean Commercial Union.

Although the Greater Aryan Race being by default is a Corporatist state, we of the Government believe that the Greater Aryan Race stands much to gain through the collective collaboration and the fostering of free and unhindered trade between nations all over the world. Therefore, it is our utmost desire to join this organisation of like-minded nations in the pursuit of material wealth and profit. Attached to this communique is our nation's application.

Unfortunately, the Greater Aryan Race regrets to inform the representatives of the ECU that it must respectfully decline to follow rule number three regarding the provision of financial aid to nations whose finances are in difficulty. The Greater Aryan Race has itself experienced the bitter effects of such a policy, the result of serious financial mismanagement on the part of the previous administration before the takeover by the ruling Fascist party. While we have succeeded in paying off much of our debts to our creditors, it has always been the policy of the Greater Aryan Race to keep it's finances in sound working order and at the same time, to avoid being forced into giving up hard-earned credit to nations who have failed to keep their finances in order. We hope that the ECU understands this.

As such, we have no problems with being a partner state of the ECU and would still operate according to the remaining rules of the ECU. To that end, I hope you will seriously consider accepting our application.

Best Regards,
Reich Minister Gottfried von Zinck
Reich Minister of the Economy

Because if it is, I'm probably going to say something mean and contrary just to contradict the majority.

This nation is now IC-ly known as the Teutonic Reich.

The Hegemonic Union


Official Communique



To: The Ellorean Commercial Union
From:The ministry of foreign affairs of the Hegemonic Union; Minister Mitalref Lraga
Subject: Application
Encryption None



Most esteemed representatives of the Ellorean Commercial Union,

I’m Minister Mitalref Lraga, ministry of foreign affairs to the Hegemonic Union. I speak on behalf of the central government on the following matters. A individual nations the member states of the Hegemonic Union reserve several rights that they and they alone can hold on to, but signing international agreements is not one of them. Whilst we remain largely convened to Pardes Elion, we have interests beyond our region. Interests that we both seek to expand and maintain. Our primary member state, The United Republics of Tehraan has thus put forwards the request to the central government to be allowed to apply.

On the issue of applying for membership to the ECU we have debated and voted. In conclusion we find ourselves content with the rules as prescribed. We feel that joining the ECU will strengthen economic ties between us and several of its members states. Coincidently also providing for consumer demand and stimulating economic growth. But this will remain exclusive to the United Republics of Tehraan, for now.

Nation Name: United Republics of Tehraan
Economy Type: Corporatism
GDP: 45,868,959,654,168
GDPPC: 33,269.72
Currency: Yat
Currency Value (relative to USD): $1 = Y$1.7082
Goods/Services that can be offered to the ECU: The United Repubics is among the fasted growing economies in the world and possesses a big manufacturing sector. The processing of minerals, fossil fuels, textile and agricultural products. As well as the production of good from these materials, such a ships, arms and automobiles. There’s also a large agricultural sector specialising primarily in the growing of rice, hemp and soy, secondary production in focussed on cultivating bananas and other tropical fruit.
Reasons for joining:We seek to establish a ground work for better economic relations with foreign nations. As well as stimulate economic growth by opening up new markers for our produce and for our own consumption.
