(b) by systematically and progressively abolishing those administrative procedures

States in order to ascertain the particular situation within the Union of the
various activities concerned;

(c) by abolishing those administrative procedures and practices, whether resulting

establishment;

(d) by ensuring that workers of one Member State employed in the territory of another
Member State may remain in that territory for the purpose of taking up activities
therein as self-employed persons, where they satisfy the conditions which they
would be required to satisfy if they were entering that State at the time when they
intended to take up such activities;

Member States within the framework of a common transport policy.

employment in certain areas and on the operation of transport facilities, they shall be
laid down by the Assembly acting unanimously.

ARTICLE 20

Until the provisions referred to in Article 19(1) have been laid down, no Member State
may, without the unanimous approval of the Assembly, make the various provisions
governing the subject when this Treaty enters into force less favourable in their direct or
indirect effect on carriers of other Member States as compared with carriers who are
nationals of that State.

ARTICLE 21

Aids shall be compatible with this Treaty if they meet the needs of co-ordination of

in so far as it affects trade between Member States, be incompatible with the Union.

2. The following shall be compatible with the Union:

(a) aid having a social character, granted to individual consumers, provided that such
aid is granted without discrimination related to the origin of the products

review all systems of aid existing in those States. It shall propose to the latter any
appropriate measures required by the progressive development or by the functioning of
the common market.

Commission finds that aid granted by a State or through State resources is not
compatible with the Union, or that such aid is being misused, it shall decide that the State concerned shall abolish or alter such aid within a period of time to be determined by the Assembly.

Commission or any other interested State may, refer the matter to the Court of Justice direct.

amend any provisions existing when this Treaty enters into force which conflict with the
preceding rules.

ARTICLE 27
Where products are exported to the territory of any Member State, any repayment of
internal taxation shall not exceed the internal taxation imposed on them whether directly
or indirectly.

APPROXIMATION OF LAWS

ARTICLE 28
Where the Assembly finds that a difference between the provisions laid down by law,
regulation or administrative action in Member States is distorting the conditions of
competition in the Union and that the resultant distortion needs to be
eliminated, it shall consult the Member States concerned.
If such consultation does not result in an agreement eliminating the distortion in
question, the Council shall, on a proposal from the Assembly, acting unanimously
during the first stage and by a qualified majority thereafter, issue the necessary
directives. The Commission and the Council may take any other appropriate measures
provided for in this Treaty.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned Plenipotentiaries have signed this Treaty.

The Cooperative Council

The Cooperative Union Council brings together CU leaders to set the CU's political agenda. It represents the highest level of political cooperation between CU countries.
the Council takes the form of summit meetings between CU leaders, chaired by a permanent president. The Council meets once yearly in a proposed member state territory for the CU Summit

What does the Cooperative Union Council do?

Decides on the CU's overall direction and political priorities – but does not pass laws.

Deals with complex or sensitive issues that cannot be resolved at lower levels of intergovernmental cooperation.

Sets the CU's common foreign & security policy, taking into account CU strategic interests and defence implications

Nominates and appoints candidates to certain high profile CU level roles, such as the Commission

On each issue, the Cooperative Union Council can:

ask the Cooperative Union Commission to make a proposal to address it.



The Cooperative Union Commission
The Cooperative Union Commission is the executive of the Cooperative Union and promotes its general interest as a whole and not the interest of individual countries

The Commission's main roles are to:

propose legislation which is then adopted by the co-legislators, the Cooperative Parliament and the Council.

enforce Cooperative law (where necessary with the help of the Court of Justice of the CU)

manage and implement CU policies and the budget

represent the Union in international spheres (negotiating trade agreements between the CU and other countries, for example)

The Cooperative Union Commission has its headquarters in Senoica, Covonant, and some services in member states of the CU such as the CU court of Justice in Ipland City, Ipland. The Commission has Representations in all CU Member States.


The Cooperative Union Parliament
The CU Parliament also referred to as the assembly. The Parliament acts as a co-legislator, sharing with the Council the power to adopt and amend legislative proposals and to decide on the CU budget. It also supervises the work of the Commission and other CU bodies and cooperates with national parliaments of CU countries to get their input.


The CU Court of Justice
The Court of Justice interprets CU law to make sure it is applied in the same way in all CU countries, and settles legal disputes between national governments and CU institutions.

It can also, in certain circumstances, be used by individuals, companies or organisations to take action against an CU institution, if they feel it has somehow infringed their rights.

What does the CJCU do?
The Court gives rulings on cases brought before it. The most common types of case are:

interpreting the law (preliminary rulings) – national courts of CU countries are required to ensure CU law is properly applied, but courts in different countries might interpret it differently. If a national court is in doubt about the interpretation or validity of an CU law, it can ask the Court for clarification. The same mechanism can be used to determine whether a national law or practice is compatible with CU law.

enforcing the law (infringement proceedings) – this type of case is taken against a national government for failing to comply with CU law. Can be started by the Cooperative Union Commission or another CU country. If the country is found to be at fault, it must put things right at once, or risk a second case being brought, which may result in a fine.

annulling CU legal acts (actions for annulment) – if an CU act is believed to violate CU treaties or fundamental rights, the Court can be asked to annul it – by an CU government, the Council of the CU, the Cooperative Commission or (in some cases) the Cooperative Parliament.

Private individuals can also ask the Court to annul an CU act that directly concerns them.

ensuring the CU takes action (actions for failure to act) – the Parliament, Council and Commission must make certain decisions under certain circumstances. If they don't, CU governments, other CU institutions or (under certain conditions) individuals or companies can complain to the Court.

sanctioning CU institutions (actions for damages) – any person or company who has had their interests harmed as a result of the action or inaction of the CU or its staff can take action against them through the Court.

The Court headquarters are found in Ipland City, Ipland

His name is Kyle Gurung. A man in his thirties with straight bleached blond hair and an odd pair of eyes: the blue color on the left came from from his Atish mother and the green on his right came from his father who was half-Skanekä. Except for that he looked like any other Gurung man: short, tanned and with slanted eyes.

He had completed his degree in International Relations from Port Gray University, Atnaia a common destination among Athara Magaratis for higher education. He had applied at the governmental office and was previously the interpreter to the Athara Magarati diplomat to Ostehaar, before being the ambassador to Keomora and then to now he was named the Athara Magarati Ambassador to Covonant after the previous one: Manish Baniya. Mr Baniya had stepped down after successfully working with Covish officials to bring Keomora and Athara Magarat to table talks after their recent war and sign a peace treaty.

"I wish you much better success." Mr Baniya had shaken hands with Kyle at the farewell party before leaving for Athara Magarat. "You are not only the ambassador to this nation but also our representative to the Cooperative Union."

This union will bring great opportunities for Athara Magarat. The workforce, the trade, the tourism and whatnot and most of all soft power diplomacy, a weapon that cannot be ignored. Play one friendly nation against another. Getting closer to Covonant and Keomora will allow us to break away from the so-called Atnaian sphere of influence that the Hegemon sees and maintain a required balance, say the higher-ups.

And now we have the very first meeting of the Cooperative Union Commission...

The Prime Minister had called Mrs. Lucretia Silvania to tell her that the cabinet had approved her becoming Covonantian Ambassador to the Cooperative Union which she humbly accepted. Mrs. Silvania was a fairly tall woman of dark complexion and jet black hair. A lady in her mid 50s, the grayness of her hair was hidden due to the dyes she made great efforts in applying. She had received her instruments of diplomacy and was transported from her residence in Capitoline, Roberticis to now work and reside in the Cooperative Zone on Senoica.

She arrived in the Cooperative Zone and was amazed at how different it was to any area in Covonant. She quickly realised that this is no Covonantian building or area, just land that her government had no control over. She felt pleased to be the first representative to the Cooperative Union for her country. After settling in at the house established for individual Ambassadors, she then made her way to the Commission Chamber where the induction ceremony and ratifying of the treaty will be done.

Upon arriving at the Commission Chamber, she was amazed with how grand the inside was, she took in the artistic and intricate designs. She was greeted by the other officials at the Chamber before making her way down to her seat as she waited for the Ambassadors of the other member states to arrive.

After arriving at the Commission Chamber, Kyle Gurung saw that only one person had arrived before him. Since the Cooperative Zone was in Covonant, he was both the ambassador to Covonant and the Cooperative Union. Kyle was also hypnotized by the artistic designs of the building. What a beautiful place! Fitting for peaceful solutions cooperation.

He approached the lady who had arrived before him and offered his hand. ""Madam, you are the Covonantian representative I presume? I am the Athara Magarati Ambassador to Covonant and the Cooperative Union, Kyle Gurung."

Mrs. Silvania stood and extended her hands forward to greet the Athara Magarati delegate.

"Hello, it is a pleasure to meet you Mr. Gurung. You have quite a portfolio to represent your country's government both at the Cooperative Union and Covonant. I do hope you will represent them well." She expressed

They both sat while patiently waiting for the others to arrive.

"I do hope the other member states arrive soon, I am confident this association will be beneficial for all states involved. The region has become so hostile, that I feel this body will add some calmness to the madness." Mrs. Silvania added as she laughed.

"Indeed madam, thank you for your kind words. I will do my best." Kyle vowed. "And those deep words of yours represent your government a fair and just and sensible one among the clouds of conflicts that we have seen. Like you said, we must wait for our other delegates to arrive." He smiled back.

The Iplandic Delegate's name is Brejn Kreijstfaal. He's a 52 y/o man from Kirsdoff, a small town outside Ipland City. He completed his education at Agkense University and was head of the Iplandic Centre for Human Rights for 7 years.

He was a strong supporter of the CU since it was discussed and debated in Parliament. He felt this would be the best place to represent Ipland in front of the world.



He had arrived in Coventry the day before, as he felt he needed little to no time to prepare.
The delegate got out of his taxi.
As he faced the large building known as the Cooperative Zone, all he could think about was how beautiful it was.
"Enough watching" He thought to himself. Brejn proudly walked into the building.

Philip Chambers entered hall were several of the other delegates had gather. The newly appointed Union ambassador had a lot of his plate, unsure if he would hold this job longer than a few short months. The President had informed him clearly on his instructions, and Mr Chambers knew what Callumstan's goals were as he arrived in the chamber. Mr Chambers saw several delegates from the other member states and confidently strode over to them to introduce himself, and to learn who they were and which countries they represented.

"Welcome, it is a pleasure that most of the member states have sent their delegates. Now we wait on the Keomorans. It would be unfortunate to start the proceedings without them." expressed Mrs. Silvania.

"I am doing very well Mr Darkwell, and yourself?" Mr Chambers said, hoping that making small talk with the other delegates would allow him to push for Callumstans best interests.

"Glad you can finally join us Mr. Darkwill, well seeing all member states are here. I believe it is in the interest of this Union being forged that we should ratify the treaties and begin discussing our moves to make our states more unified as I would hope the greatest political and economic bloc the Isles have ever seen" Mrs Silvania noted.

The Treaty document was brought forward and sent around the table with the delegates to sign.

Mrs. Lucretia Silvania

Kyle Gurung looked over the papers. He read them carefully before signing it.

He then waited for Jon Darkwill of Keomora to sign the treaty so that they could move ahead to further discussions.

John Darkwill,
President of Keomora

"I guess it would be prudent for my nation to send an official delegate sometimes soon." He declared before tucking in his pen and handing the document back to Mrs. Silvana.

"We would have no opposition to that President Darkwill. At present we await the delegate from Perawin and then we should begin discussing the political uniting of our countries." expressed Mr. Silvania.

"Well, I believe we have waited long enough for the Perawin Delegate, and simple can't wait anymore. Shall I move towards other pressing matters. Noting this is the Commission, we are obligated to make recommendations on matters of the CU that should be binding in all states. Are we willing to discuss the issue of the Bhikkustan refugee crisis and its implications for member states?" Asked Mrs. Silvania

"Not to sound callous but there is no way that Keomora can handle an influx of refugees at the moment," declared President Drarkwill, who promptly took off his reading glasses, "we lack the resources, funds, or space to place an indefinite amount of displaced individuals. In addition there is the problem of anti-Keomoran sentiments shared by a multitude of Bhikkustanis due to our support of Domanania and our small conflict with the 18 tribes."
The President glared briefly at Kyle Gurung, before continuing to explain.
"We feel that the refugees would be better off being sent to countries closer to their homeland or share cultural, religious values that will allow the displaced people to integrate easier in these strange environments."
For Peace and Honor.

"Certainly, the Hang announced that Athara Magarat will be providing temporary shelter and jobs for a year until the conflict in Bhikkustan is settled. It is our moral duty as Athara Magaratis work in Bhikkustan as soldiers, religious preachers, IT professionals and on various sectors. The two nations are often termed as Athara Magarati sister and her Bhikkstani brother due to our similarities in culture and religion." Mr Gurung tried his best to give a reasonable reply. "I believe that we will require the assistance of your nations for feeding them. Modern Athara Magarat heavily relies on imported foods and we will be unable to to feed the refugees. Shelter and jobs we can manage but food, clothing and some other necessities, we would need the help of your nations, delegates."

"Ipland simply cannot handle a large influx of refugees, as we lack a lot of space.
We feel as though like President Drarkwill said, it would be best for those displaced by the recent conflicts to be placed in
nations with similar cultures. We would be willing to provide food and clothing to those affected."

"Covonant has withdrawn financial aid to Bhikkustan and as such our government is concerned that with the ongoing crisis and no government assistance to the people it may be devastating on a large scale for other states. I applaud the Athara Magarat government for making a bold step in assisting the refugees. Covonant too shares the same issues and concerns as most of the CU member states, we however wish to advise whether this Commission is willing to provide necessities to alleviate the burdens that would be faced by the Athara Magarat government, namely food, water and clothing supplies. The Cooperative Union has stipulations when it comes with granting aid to member states and in this instance, Athara Magarat will be in need of aid to ensure that the problems that may arise will not be detrimental to the economy or the natural course of governance. Member states who have pledge to support Athara Magarat will have to make their claims explicitly clear to ensure that we adhere to Article 25 Section 2 of the treaty that deals with the issuance of Aids to ensure it is non prejudicial and compatible with the mandates of this Union. Any member state that from hence forth wishes to assist in the taking in of refugees will adhere by these stipulations.

I ask that the Athara Magarati delegate provide a report to this Commission so as to provide notification of the needs the government may be requesting as well as member states once such reports have been presented in this Honourable chamber we make the means to provide Aid in unison." Expressed Mrs. Silvania

"Callumstan would be able to take in refugees, however it would not be a large amount and the process for permitting refugees into Callumstan is not straightforward. What figures are we looking at in this crisis, exactly how many refugees is there likely to be? Mr Chambers asked
