LOTUS [FT, Sign-ups thread, OPEN]

The galaxy in which we reside has given rise to and witnessed the fall of polities, civilizations and societies in a never ending cycle, the never ending spinning wheel that is the universe. The conventions of birth and death have been a longstanding and central law of nature, even in the life of the universe. The cycle begins when a civilization emerges from obscurity due to specific conditions that allow it to emerge from the primordial depths, growing gradually in power and scope until it reaches a zenith marked by peace and prosperity. From there it declines from within and without, and collapses back into the obscurity from which it came. Sometimes the cycle repeats, and other times it ends for good—such is the nature of the universe. That very nature permeates all layers of life, and that includes social development and organization in the form of nations.

A fitting analogy to the "life cycle" of a civilization would be the cycle observed in plants. It begins as a small seed, small and insignificant—yet it is from insignificance where all things emerge, life especially. After some time the seed germinates and breaks out of the earth to begin its life as a plant. Surviving and thriving amidst the elements, it continues to grow stronger—developing branches from which leaves arise. A healthy foliage begins to clothe the stalk, and flowers with vibrant colors bloom. At last, the plant reaches the culmination of its maturity, proudly standing tall above the soil for all to behold. Seeds develop from within the flowers, giving rise to the genesis of more plants.

Of the plants, there are the trees that have established trunks and a healthy, abundant foliage—where all creation can rest under its generous shade. There are shrubs and vines that provide the world with fruits, and plants that bloom with flowers that often prove marvelous to those who behold them. There are also plants such as herbs and grasses that despite their unimpressive height, fill the ground all the way to the horizon. Even the sea is filled with plants that line the sandy bed. There is no single model for a plant—no standard blueprint set by nature that dictates how they may come to be—and that may be perhaps what makes them beautiful.

Yet even in all its splendor, the plant—sad the truth may be—doesn’t last forever. Eventually it will wither and die through the passage of time, returning into the ground from which it sprouted. Its leaves change color from a healthy green to a near-lifeless brown, and the flowers begin to lose their petals in what would be perhaps a graceful death. In time, it becomes devoid of any foliage or flowers—the stalk and branches serving as the remains of a once living plant. Sometimes, even the stalk itself withers away, resting on the soil from which it came.

However, some plants do not die a natural death. Many of them "die" because of external elements that are not of nature's direct intervention. Sometimes, they die because they are used by other living things for sustenance, medicine, or even as decoration. And so it is with civilizations—often stronger civilizations crush the weaker ones, trampling them underfoot and absorbing them into their own. Yet still, in the darkest of nights, just before the horizon becomes alight in flame, others take deep the wisdom of their experiences and bloom once more. For even in the depths of space, the light of civilization still shines, just as the lone plant thrives in desolation.

We are LOTUS.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS AND THANKS
The League of Organized Territories and United Systems is not the work of a single person, as much as you would like to believe it is—rather it is the result of a collaborative project put together by certain members of the NationStates Future Tech Community who desire to have a vehicle to RP with. As such, we would like to thank all those who have supported this idea and helped us make this become a thing. However, there are some particular people that deserve some special note. Kyrusia, thank you so much for the helpful advice. We very much appreciate your insight and your support for LOTUS from its conception as an idea to its creation on the NS forums. Stormwrath, Neornith, and Ghant, thank you for contributing heavily to this project and putting all the necessary pieces together. Finally, to those who have shown interest in LOTUS, thank you so much for supporting us in this idea. We also hope to see you soon.

We, the member-states of the League of Organized Territories and United Systems, confirming our desire for continued and sustained security and prosperity, pledging ourselves in mutual commitment and cooperation to the principles of national sovereignty, and upholding the ideals of liberty, peace and freedom for all member-states, hereby agree to the terms and agreements outlined in this present Charter of the League of Organized Territories and United Systems, and so accordingly establish this alliance.

A R T I C L EI
Definition of Terms


For the purposes of this Charter, a definition of terms shall be provided for the purpose of information. This is so that the descriptors used in this Charter will be clearly and adequately expounded so as to not cause confusion.

Member-states shall be defined as interstellar and interplanetary polities that have officially signed this document and enjoy full membership status in LOTUS.

Signatories, more properly known as endorsed signatories, shall be defined as any interstellar and or interplanetary polities that have officially signed or expressed a confirmation of loyalty to this document but still await official confirmation from the League.

Observer states, also referred to as observer signatories, shall be defined as any interstellar and or interplanetary polities that have chosen to observe the League for certain reasons.

The Conclave of the League, also shortened as Conclave, shall be defined as a body established for the purpose of discussing matters within the scope of this Charter.

The Committee of Inquiry and Direction, also referred to as the Committee, shall be defined as a body established for the purpose of direction, promulgation, and the sure execution of any and all writs, tenders, resolutions and other legislation ratified by the League as a whole.

Foundational membership shall be defined as any interstellar and or interplanetary polities that were present at the initial conception and establishment of LOTUS, and by consequence the original founding member-states of the League.

Representatives shall be defined as individuals appointed by member-states to represent their respective governments in the League.

Freespace, also known as international space, shall be defined as areas of space not recognized by any interstellar polity as legally part of the sovereign territory or exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of any other interstellar polity. Such space is therefore under the collective responsibility of all nations.

Trade lanes, also known as commercial lanes, shall be defined as routes of travel that are frequently used by mass transit for the purposes of interstellar trade.

Freespace Enforcement Regulations are defined as any law, directive, or memo establishing, amending or removing regulations concerning affairs in freespace areas.

A R T I C L EII
Statement of Purpose and Principles


The League of Organized Territories and United Systems shall endeavor to operate as a joint group under the principles of: sovereignty of its signatories through political and military action as is deemed necessary, protection of the liberty and freedom of the citizenry of its member-states, prosperity among member-states through mutually beneficial economic policies and protocols, and the promotion of mutual understanding and cultural appreciation among signatories. As an organization of like-minded nations we shall uphold these principles.


A R T I C L EIII
Organization, Structure and Protocol


In order to enforce the terms of this Charter, the League shall establish for itself a general assembly of representatives that shall be known as the Conclave of the League. This assembly shall be comprised of a plenary of representatives from all member-states of LOTUS. Each nation shall be allotted a single representative to sit in the Conclave. Representatives for a member-state shall be appointed by their respective member-states, and must be citizens of their respective member-states. The Conclave shall serve as the vehicle from which the decisions of the League shall be made.

The Conclave of the League shall meet in regular annual sessions and in such special sessions that may be required. Special sessions shall be convened at the request of the Committee of Inquiry and Direction or by the approval of a simple majority of member-states in the Conclave.

The functions of the Conclave of the League shall be as follows: to discuss any questions or any matters within the scope of this present Charter that may be brought before it by any member-state of the League, receive and consider reports from the Committee or other divisions of the League, elect the members of the Committee of Inquiry and Direction, consider and make recommendations for solving certain issues through peaceful means, and approve the budget of the League.

Decisions of the Conclave on important issues shall be made by a two-thirds majority of the member-states present and voting. Such issues include: the election of member-states of the Committee of Inquiry and Direction, the suspension of the rights and privileges of membership, the expulsion of member-states, and budgetary questions. The admission of new member-states to the League, though it is an important issue, shall be decided with a simple majority of the members present and voting. Proposed resolutions submitted by member-states to the League must have the endorsement of one other member-state before the Conclave may discuss.

This Charter shall also hereby establish a committee known as the Committee of Inquiry and Direction. This committee's purpose is for the direction, promulgation, and the sure execution of any and all writs, tenders, resolutions, and other legislation ratified by the League whole. The initiating Committee shall consist of no more than three representative that shall be duly elected from amongst the foundational membership of the League and/or their officially selected, appointed, or elected representatives.

A term shall be defined as a period of time in which a representative serves the Committee. A representative shall serve no more than two consecutive terms on this committee, a term being a period of time not exceeding ninety (90) standard days. The positions of the committee shall be rotated based upon an election to the position by the League whole.

The Committee may also create divisions in order to facilitate its internal organization more effectively.

A R T I C L EIV
Inter-signatory Security and Benefit


In the case of armed attack, signatories to the Charter may make an appeal to the Conclave and show cause for why they are in need of military assistance from member-states of the League. member-states are welcome to assist their fellow member-states in case of armed attack from a hostile entity, and are not obligated to come to the defense of other member-states.

The signatories, separately and jointly, by means of self-help and mutual aid, will maintain and develop their individual capacity to resist armed attack.

This Charter shall hereby establish a Security Enforcement Service for the explicit purpose of helping to inhibit pirate, terrorist, and insurrectionary activities in designated shipping lanes, trade lanes, jump lanes, or other commercial shipping networks under the operation and/or protection of LOTUS. This Security Enforcement Service shall be established through local law and in accordance with the national laws of signatory states, to the exclusion of establishing no less than one garrison to be manned under here-to-be agreed upon guidelines insofar as counter-piracy and counter-terrorism capacity. This Security Enforcement Service shall be subject to local sovereign law while operating within local sovereign territory, and subject to the Freespace Enforcement Regulations while operating in neutral or otherwise "freespace."

A R T I C L EV
Rights and Responsibilities


Member-states of the League have predetermined rights and responsibilities that are inherent to their membership.

Each signatory to this Charter has the right to:
  • petition for military assistance from other member-states in case of armed attack,
  • access all LOTUS defended trade lanes,
  • petition for legislations and resolutions,
  • petition for voice (free speech) and grievances,
  • be free from the burden of intervention in its domestic affairs. and
  • be nominated and elected as a member of the LOTUS' Committee of Inquiry and Direction.

In addition, signatories to this Charter shall have the following responsibilities:
  • the responsibility of maintaining good standing through upholding the Charter, resolutions, and core tenets of the League,
  • the responsibility of supplying a representative to the Conclave,
  • the responsibility of listening to the grievances and petitions of other member-states,
  • the responsibility of considering defending the interests of other member-states,
  • the responsibility of supplying a base of operations for the LOTUS Security Enforcement Service within each system under their control, and
  • the responsibility of signatory member-states on the steering committee to act in good faith and the best interests of LOTUS.

A R T I C L EVI
Membership of LOTUS


Signatories to this charter may invite other nations that seek to advance principles of trade, defense, freedom, and national sovereignty in good faith and common cause to join the League of Organized Territories and United Systems.

Membership in the League of Organized Territories and United Systems is open to all states that accept the terms, conditions, and obligations outlined in this Charter, and are able and willing to carry out these obligations. Nations acceding to the terms of this Charter shall become members of the League upon confirmation of a simple majority vote of the Conclave.

In such extreme circumstances as require the expulsion of a member-state, namely the unprovoked attack by one member-state upon another or gross infringements against other member-states, the Conclave shall retain the right to expel any member-state from the League. member-states shall be expelled upon confirmation of expulsion by a two-thirds vote of the Conclave.

A R T I C L EVII
Amendments


This Charter may be amended by member-states of LOTUS via referendum, should two-thirds of all representatives deem it necessary. Should a referendum pass two-thirds vote of the representatives it may be ratified as an amendment.

An amendment to the Charter may be petitioned by any representative before the Committee of Inquiry and Direction. Said proposed amendment should carry the support of two other member-states before being presented before the Conclave. The representatives of the League shall vote on one referendum at a time.

Member-states of the Committee that identify certain needs of LOTUS may also construct an amendment to the present Charter. The proposal may not require the support of two other member-states. Upon completion of the proposal it shall be brought before the Conclave for implementation.


A R T I C L EVIII
Ratification and Signatures


On this 120th day of this Galactic Standard Year, this Charter of the League of Organized Territories and United Systems shall come into existence for the benefit of its member-states and is henceforth ratified by these signatories:

A Tempest of Ash (Inactive)
This RP follows the involvement of certain member-states of LOTUS in the SCU Civil War. This war has raged between the remnants of the ruling Federal Administration, a Corporate Alliance of several influential companies, and OMNI, composed of high-ranking members of the Federal Administration's military intelligence branch.

The Arthas (Inactive)
The ENC Arthas, an Elredri freighter vessel, was seized by brigands in deep space near the Arus System, and its crew was held hostage. It is now up to LOTUS's Security Enforcement Service to rescue them. But time is working against them, and every second that passes meant any hostage was closer to death. Can they make it?

The Union Is Not Yet Lost (Active)
The civil war that ravaged the Solar Cooperative Union has just ended, but LOTUS's troubles are just beginning. An uprising had broken out on the planet of Luston, with the rebels declaring an independent state. The combined LOTUS forces have arrived to aid the federal government and put this rebellion down, but some say that things are starting to become tense between the locals and the occupiers...

Other alliances and intergovernmental organizations 1: GESO
Reason to join this alliance 5: The Colony is doing everything it can to get involved in the outside world, trying it's best to make sure the Ferrets get as much exposure as possible. Wants to do anything possible to help make any other nation, organization, etc, that helps better in any way they can.

I have written a few things but they are not really that good to be showing off (Factbooks are probably my best show casing of writing skill, in which case, link above). Just hoping that at least trying to join more places will help change that, and that I can at least get a chance to try and prove myself, or at least get a place to learn from or something.
Additional Information: Well, least I worked up the courage to write this. Feel free to telegram me with any questions, ask anything, I’ll be happy to try and answer them for a chance. If not, thank you for your time.

Head of State: Machine Goddess
Head of Government 3: N/A
Factbook Link(s) 1 4: Factbook

M I L I T A R YI N F O R M A T I O N


Description of Armed Forces 5: Unlike many other countries, Tharwatine Constellation does not possess a permanent military forces in the usual sense. The vast majority of daily defence activity are upheld by artificial intelligence created from limited digitalised mind copy, with its few supervision roles being filled by citizens. Often, temporary military roles are recruited among qualified citizens for non-daily military activity ranging from armed convoy to attack against pre-determined hostile targets. As such, the Tharwatine military forces is extremely highly automated, with citizens present often only at the highest hierarchy of the structure.
Active Military Personnel 6: ~0.01%
Reserve Military Personnel 6: ~0.1%
Will your nation contribute to joint military operations?: [x] Yes [ ] No
Will your nation attend joint military exercises?: [x] Yes [ ] No

E C O N O M I CI N F O R M A T I O N


Economic System: Pseudo-post-scarcity command economy
Currency: Âmseorxwitm (for foreigner use)
Gross Domestic Product 1 2 7: N/A
GDP per capita 1 2 7 8: N/A
Primary Exports: Art, entertainment, designer artificial body, cybernetic implants, personal armament
Primary Imports: Exotic foodstuff, genetic material, non-personal armament, foreign capital
Primary Industries 1: Bioengineering
Will your nation provide economic aid to other nations?: [x] Yes [ ] No

M E M B E R S H I PI N F O R M A T I O N


Other alliances and intergovernmental organizations 1: None
Reason to join this alliance 5: Despite the best effort by the Machine Goddess, the Tharwatine Constellation is a minuscule and weak star-state compared with its neighbour. In a volatile galaxy, especially the chaotic gamma-delta quadrant Tharwatine is located, Machine Goddess realises that only by cooperation can minor states like Tharwatine and other similar small star-states to survive. The Machine Goddess is willing to share its bioengineering creations and its myriad benefits to all who are willing to receive, but such an exchange could not happen efficiently without a permanent trade route being established between Tharwatine and other star-states, which will require military strength to maintain its operation, something that the Constellation lack in both ability and will to undergo alone. As such, joining an alliance that focuses on such mutual cooperation without a single pre-dominant polity would be most beneficial to both Tharwatine and all who are willing to befriend it.
Does your nation believe in using diplomacy as a means to achieve peace?: Yes, for the trauma of the Great Deluge still haunts the Tharwatine people of the destructive nature of all-out war, and the Machine Goddess has enforced an age of peace and prosperity to slowly recover the losses caused by the calamity. The destructive nature of planetary wars, as well as the relative weakness of the Tharwatine Constellation means diplomacy should be used in place of war as often as possible.
Will your nation be committed to the alliance through mutual cooperation?: Yes. Tharwatine Constellation is minuscule and weak compared with other Galactic states, and only with mutual cooperation could it and its kind achieve greater prosperity.
If necessary, will your nation be willing to defend its fellow member-nations from outside expansionism and aggression?: Yes.
Have you read the LOTUS Charter?: [x] Yes [ ] No
Do you agree with the terms and agreements outlined in the charter?: [x] Yes [ ] No

Description of Armed Forces 5: The Greater Nifidium Convocation armed forces consist of two professional service branches: Classis (naval forces) and Tagmata (equivalent to a ground forces-based army). The forces and resources for each Quadrant (and their respective witherward-controlled solar systems) are provided by the Greater Nifidium Convocation, and are overseen by the GNC Hereward Proelium through an appointed Tenth Iteration Tier Magister Utriusque Militiae. The Convocation Classis and Tagmata are charged with externally protecting the witherward. This force does not delve into international peacekeeping efforts nor will it allow itself be held to treaties put forth between a witherward and any foreign government or a foreign governing body such as the World Assembly, NATO or other coalition operations. Swith Witherward's Proelium concerns itself with internal matters; it can engage in international peacekeeping efforts provided it does not engage in hostilities. It maintains both the Triskel Space Station in the Thole system and the Pax Terra Space Station in the Sol system, and shepherds Swithwardian ships along Convocation held shipping routes or trade lines. The Swithwardian Classis operates a large operational fleet of ships within space but also serves in suborbital and atmospheric roles, tasked with the same responsibilities as a contemporary air force. It is overseen on a witherward level by Madam Niera Vance, Ministre Plénipotentiaire (Plenipotentiary Minister).

Reason to join this alliance 5: The Glorious Borderlands of Swith Witherward is intrigued by your approach. Your introduction caught our eye. It is uncommon in this day and age to find any race capable of so eloquently presenting the universe's cruel truths; to find a conclave of such races is indeed special.

  3. > Example of collaborated post (with Highfort) <
Additional Information: I prefer to wargame only with my OSF gaming group (I run the antagonist Nifid), thus you will find my nations on NS to be much more sedate and outgoing. I won't support war/military/police action RP on NS. I have not listed my military information for this reason. I do have ungodly powerful things in my nation. They need to remain there rather than dragged out in front of polite company where, like a fussy child, they will sulk and brood and generally behave like precocious little shits until, embarrassed by them, we angrily banish them from the room.

My player goal is to unwind, not dominate and control the universe; nothing makes me grumpy like seeing a good game ruined by "miracle" technology or handwavium antics. My stuff is kept low-key and unobtrusive.

I do enjoy humanitarian mission RP, as well as diplomatic events, mysteries, action/adventure, survival RP, and a host of other tasty things. That said, I don't have to run a character to stay active in an organization. My specialties are worldbuilding, organizing and storycrafting, and I lending these skills to the group.

Also, I'm here to steal Stormwrathian popcorn.



1 Optional field.
2 In-character field.
3 Omit if head of state.
4 May be drawn from offsite NS-related websites.
5 Must have a minimum of three sentences.
6 May be given in percentage of the population.
7 Must be given in your nation's currency.
8 GDP per capita is also known as the average income of your citizens. It is calculated by dividing your GDP by your population.
9 This field is required for your place in the LOTUS roster.

For those who wish to re-apply after they have been rejected, you should wait 15 days before you can apply again. No modification of coding in this template may be carried out.

N A T I O N A LI N F O R M A T I O N


Nation Name 2: The Laerul Coalition
Population 2: 60 billion
Government Type: Internet Democracy
Home/Capital Planet: Qul
Home/Capital System 1: Qul System
Head of State: None.
Head of Government 3: The Laerulan government is a very loose structure that receives its overarching policy decisions from a gestalt conscious of its members, the number of people participating in the gestalt varies depending on who it will impact. From there the various levels of government and business try to meet the decisions reached by the gestalt, relying on Arulan's lawful and group oriented tendencies to enforce it across the board. Chiefs can be appointed by the gestalt to help manage resources in a more top down manner but these positions have very limited range of powers and their authority only extends so far. There is no specific position or system which can make definitive decisions for the Coalition, more often than not decisions are made locally by who ever commands local forces and resources.
Factbook Link(s) 1 4: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=371032

M I L I T A R YI N F O R M A T I O N


Description of Armed Forces 5: The Coalition Defense force is under the direct command of the appointed Chiefs, who handle matters of organization and military planning. Overall decisions about defense policy are created by public consensus through votes, hosted during important events or when the people call for a change. The Defense Force is further divided into the Local militias who handle most defense and policing matters on planets and in space habitats and the Spatial Force which pilots warships in space. The Spatial Force has modeled itself and its technology after humans following first contact and an analysis of the situation, though the organization of personnel is still familiar to Arulan minds. Fleet and flotillas patrol most of the claimed space, using central locations and FTL to quickly arrive at the outskirts should buoys or patrols detect something.
Active Military Personnel 6:0.015% of the population
Reserve Military Personnel 6:0.04% of the population

Will your nation provide economic aid to other nations?: [X] Yes [ ] No

M E M B E R S H I PI N F O R M A T I O N


Other alliances and intergovernmental organizations 1:N/A
Reason to join this alliance 5: The primary reason is to provide legitimacy to Laerulan Sovereignty and to bolster the defenses of the coalition against piracy and terrorism. Situation the Coalition is not as familiar with in its FT context. The Coalition also seeks stable trade partners to help immerse itself into the galatic community and protect its reputation as a legitimate and honorable source of trade.
Does your nation believe in using diplomacy as a means to achieve peace?:Yes.
Will your nation be committed to the alliance through mutual cooperation?:Yes.
If necessary, will your nation be willing to defend its fellow member-nations from outside expansionism and aggression?:Yes.
Have you read the LOTUS Charter?: [X] Yes [ ] No
Do you agree with the terms and agreements outlined in the charter?: [X] Yes [ ] No

The League of Organized Territories and United Systems regrets to inform the Kingdom of Vixia Prime that your nation's entry into the League has been

The Collective may send a representative to the Conclave of the League to represent its interests in the League. It may enjoy all the rights and be entailed the same responsibilities as a member in good standing of LOTUS henceforth from the receiving of this dispatch.

UPDATE: The application form of LOTUS has been updated. You will notice certain changes in the way the template is rendered, making it look a bit more presentable, but perhaps the most noticeable would be the inclusion of the OOC questionnaire in the app. Applicants are to answer those questions so we may gauge how you operate from an OOC and IC standpoint. This section was added so that the review process can be streamlined, as we have previously TG'd the questions to applicants once they have posted their apps. We hope this will be of more convenience to you who want to RP with us as a member of this group. Thanks for reading!

Do not remove tag. It helps us find applications.
Removal will result in immediate rejection.
