    Security and Economical Union of Royalist States



    Greetings to everyone,
    the Security and Economical Union of Royalist States is an organization devoted to the development of fair, pacific and loyal cooperation and collaboration between royalist States.
    Originally, it existed as a separate region, but now, with the merger of the member countries in the World Alliance, I am here to present it as a new organization inside our region.

    Here http://secur.forumcommunity.net/ is the link to our forum. Also, you can read our Founding Charter there.
    If you are interested to join us or simply curious, don't hesitate to ask!

    The Royal Castle of Merlberg, Headquarters of SECURS.


    The Office of the Secretary General of the SECURS (the so-called Sigismund VI Study Room)

    List of SECURS Member States

    Federal Aristocratic Kingdom of New Tarajan
    United Kingdom of Zackalantis
    People's Republic of Ienara

    THE FOUNDING CHARTER OF SECURS (Treaty of Merlberg):


    PREAMBLE

    We affirm our faith in the ideals of the enlightened monarchy and government, as the only way to promote security and prosperity, away from the dangers, violences and suffering caused by all kinds of revolution. We condemn totalitarianism, and especially communism, as an abomination of ideology, and the extreme threat to the future of mankind. We reject totalitarian and anti-monarchical democracy as a source of corruption, destabilization and inexorable erosion of the fundamental and indispensable values which are the foundation of the society itself. We shall promote with all necessary efforts and in all fields the values and principles stated in this preamble and to lead their peoples accordingly. We shall fight against totalitarianism in all its forms, with all our strength as the only way to save humankind. We shall respect and contribute to the development of International Law, and international organisations. We recognize the importance of cooperation, collaboration and integration between all those States which share these ideals.

    We agree:

    Article 2:

    I think I can respond to Zack. No, the SECURS is an organisation for only kingdom. The other nations can obtain the status of observer.
    Tokugawa, we must wait for the decision of New Tarajan.

    As the Prime Minister Van De Groot said in the press conference soon after the referendum, the Empire of Ireland is still considered a member. It's a symbolic gesture of friendship and protection to King Willem Alexander, and it's in no case extended to the Republic too.

    Of course, if there are no objections from the other Members.

    About the Irish issue: very well, then. All Members, please, cast your vote if to keep or not Ireland (in its monarchical fashion) a symbolic member of the Organization.

    We'll provide all the help you need.
    We'll cooperate with Zackalantis and Europe in fighting the FFCI, under the clauses of the SECURS Charter.

    Also, I inform you that Tokugawa requested for entrance. I ask to all Members to express their opinion about it.

    To all Members: in order to better coordinate our actions against the FFCI under the SECURS Charter, we ask to everyone to submit here their participation, with the relative numbers and details, for the constitution of a SECURS Joint Task Force.

    I wish to submit myself as commander of the operation, but if there are objections, we'll consider other candidates.

    We object.
    We want the UKZ to lead the task force.
    We bear no ill feelings to any nation the only thing is that we are highly suspicious of foreign aid helping the FFCI and even though we trust New Tarajan wholly and completely we believe that the task force should be lead by the UKZ since it is operating on zach soil.

    Any member nation may bring a case against any other member nation for arbitration and judgement. Three judges (not including anyone from the nations in dispute) shall hear the case and either arbitrate or issue a judgement. If not appealed within three months the decision is binding on both parties and if necessary shall be imposed by the military of member nations. If there is an appeal a new set of three judges (not including anyone from the nations in dispute) shall hear the case and either arbitrate or issue a judgement. If this decision is the same as the first one it is binding. If a different decision is reached then it will become binding after three months if not appealed. If appealed then a third set of three judges (not including anyone from the nations in dispute) shall hear the case and either arbitrate or issue a judgement. This decision is final and binding on all parties.

    Each member nation shall also submit the names of two other senior judges who can be involved in hearing cases when necessary. A substitute should always be considered when an appeal is required to ensure there is at least one permanent judge available for the second appeal if necessary.

    The full Court of Justice has the power to interpret all treaties of SECURS and decisions of the Assembly, Council of Monarchs and Council of Ministers.

    Article 8:

    To setup the Council of Ministers, composed of individual ministers of each member nation. It could be composed of the first ministers of each member nation. It could be composed of the financial ministers of each member nation. It could be composed of the Business and Industry ministers of each member nation. The composition changes depending on the topics being discussed as agreed by the Assembly or Council of Monarchs in their recommendation to the Council. Decisions shall be unanimous for them to apply to all member nations. If they are by majority vote then those of the minority may opt-out of that requirement. This Council can create new Committees, Commissions and Institutions by majority vote that apply to those nations whose minister vote for them. Those who are in the minority may sign up their nations to these new Committees, Commissions and Institutions at any time thereafter.

    Article 9:

    To setup the SECURS Standard Committee, composed of one person from each member nations. The SECURS standard committee shall elect one of its number to be the Chair of the committee to chair meetings and represent the committee to other institutions of SECURS.

    The SECURS Standard Committee shall consider the national standards of each member nation and to either unanimously agree a SECURS wide standard or by majority vote recommend a standard to the Assembly to decide if it should be considered by the Council of Monarchs or the Council of Ministers.

    Any member nation can request that the SECURS Standard Committee consider questions regarding the standards of another member nation to ensure that it is not a form of unfair discrimination against similar products from other member nations. It shall reach a recommendation on the issue for it to be passed to the Assembly to decide if it should be considered by the Council of Monarchs or the Council of Ministers.

    Article 10:

    SECURS shall have its own budget and may employ people to further its aims. Each member nation shall contribute to SECURS in proportion to its GDP and the GDP of the other member nations. Disputes over the contributions shall be resolved in the Council of Monarchs or the Council of Ministers.

    Article 11:

    The subjects of each member state shall be allowed to travel to all other member states without the need for a visa.

    Article 12:

    Any member nation may leave SECURS by giving adequate notice and negotiating how the exit will happen within the Council of Ministers.

    New member nations may apply for membership and if two-thirds of the Council of Monarchs agrees they shall become members once they have signed the relevant treaties and protocols.

    Article 13:

    This Treaty will become immediately effective after the affixing of the signatures by Member States.
    Any State before signing the treaty can submit a reserve toward one or at least two Articles of the Treaty, justifying its position. In this case, the Council of Monarchs shall decide whether that nation shall be approved or not to the membership of SECURS.
    Any new nation applying for membership shall set out which majority passed regulation, committees, commissions and institutions it wishes to have a reserve to opt-out.

    Article 14:

    Nations without a monarch may join SECURS. They will have the same rights and duties as other members of SECURS except they will not be represented on the Council of Monarchs. These nations may sign up to any new Committees, Commissions and Institutions or reforms agreed by the Council of Monarchs when they wish to.

    Article 15:

    This Treaty can be modified by the Council of Monarchs or by the Council of Ministers, and if done by a majority those in the minority shall have the right to opt-out of those new terms they haven’t voted in favour of.

    Post by New Tarajan on Thu Oct 16, 2014 3:06 am

    I suggest you to underline your changes through the use of different colors. It's very difficult to confront each paragraph of the two versions.

    Also, the Kingdom of New Tarajan wishes to say to all Members that the proposals of North Macwick have been made since the country has intention to join the SECURS itself.
    We wish to take this opportunity to invite all Members to send their delegates (possibly, Heads of State and Government) in Merlberg, where the Summit for the restructure of SECURS (formally, Second Assembly Session) will be hold.
    We will take this opportunity also to demonstrate our unity of intents, friendship and brotherood, and to get a signal to the terrorists all around the world that we will not be devoted by fear.

    Please, every Member, make a news about it.
    Thank you very much.

    P.S.: obviously, during the Summit we will discuss the proposals made by North Macwick. I hope this will be a wonderful occasion to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of SECURS.

    Post by North Macwick on Fri Oct 17, 2014 1:35 pm

    It will be much easier for me if I just list the changes.

    Spoiler:
    PREAMBLE

    List of signatures deleted (will need to be replaced with new list).

    Clause numbering removed, clauses edited for sense and spelling, deletion of “believing in the work of the World Assembly and the Security Council, and offering them their support with an active participation;” replaced with “and international organisations.”

    Reason – to remove the support for and membership of the World Assembly as an implied membership condition.

    Move Article 2 to become Article 1
    Edited for sense.
    Deleting “After a previous resolution of the Assembly, if necessary, they could declare war against so called "Threat States", or financing and support rebels movements inside them.”
    Replaced with
    To, if the Assembly (see below) resolves to, declare war against so called "Threat States", or financing and/or support of rebel movements against so called "Threat States".

    From Article 1
    “They agree to resolve all their disputes with other Member States under the International Law, by peaceful means in such a manner that international peace and security and justice are not endangered  and appealing, if necessary, to the Court of Justice of the Union.”, but replaced with
    “All Member States agree to resolve their disputes with other Member States peaceful in the SECURS Court of Justice.”

    Addition of
    “SECURS will use its international position to encourage the setting up of an inclusive international organisation that all nations can join.”

    Article 1 moved to Article 2

    “All Member States will make every effort in order to promote cooperation, collaboration and integration between them in the field of social, economical, cultural and political matters, following the principles stated in the preamble of this Treaty and the ideals behind them.”

    Deleted and replaced with

    “To setup a free trade area of member nations and to develop the free movement of goods and services between member nations. To integrate all member’s external tariffs which apply to non-member nations. To develop trade agreements between SECURS and non-member nations.”

    Article 3

    Council of Monarchs is renamed original Assembly made up of heads of state if they are monarch only now.

    Therefore all new –

    “To setup the Council of Monarchs, composed of the monarchs of each member nation. It shall meet at least once a year and the venue shall rotate between member nations. Each member nation may send a substitute (preferably another member of the royal family). Decisions can be either by majority or unanimous as agreed by the Council and when by majority vote it shall be agreed before-hand if the majority decision will apply to all nations or if they can opt-out. This Council can create new Committees, Commissions and Institutions by majority vote that apply to those nations whose monarchs vote for them. Those who are in the minority may sign up their nations to these new Committees, Commissions and Institutions at any time thereafter.”

    Replacing the President of the Assembly.

    Article 4

    Creates “The head of SECURS” to replace old General Secretary role which is refined below.

    Therefore most of this article is new

    “The Head of SECURS shall be the monarch of Kingdom of New Tarajan who holds the office for life or until they resign. If the monarch Kingdom of New Tarajan resigns but continues as monarch of New Tarajan then the heir to the monarchy of New Tarajan shall be the Head of SECURS. If there is no monarch or heir of New Tarajan to be the Head, the Council of monarchs shall elect one of their number to be the Head for one year, which can be renewed continuously.

    The Head of SECURS shall chair the Council of Monarchs and is the ceremonial face of SECURS.”

    The head is still the monarch of Kingdom of New Tarajan, the role has changed and they are no longer in charge of the day to day running of SECURS (why would a king want to be involved in basic administration?). If the head isn’t the monarch or heir of the Kingdom of New Tarajan the role is elective, without any majority specified, being a straight annual election.

    Article 5

    Abolition of the Council for Economical Affairs.

    Assembly re-defined here and different from the original one and can only make recommendation to other bodies of SECURS.

    Three members from each member nation is the same as the original High Commission for International Affairs.

    “To setup the Assembly of SECURS, composed of three people from each member nation.
    Its main function is to debate about matters of common interest, providing a forum and an institutional framework for SECURS as well to manage those people employed by SECURS. By majority vote it shall make recommendations to the Council of Ministers or the Council of Monarchs.”

    Replaces all of this text from original article 3

    “Its main function is to debate about matters of common interest, providing a forum and an institutional framework for Member States, with the perspective of trying to reach agreements between them, which would be eventually transferred into resolutions and recommendations for one or to all Member States, adopted with a majority system.
    Also, the Assembly can redact a Declaration of Principles, adopted by consensus of its members.
    If it is believed to be necessary, the Assembly can request opinions to the Court of Justice of the Union, the High Commission for International Affairs and the Council for Economical Affairs about matters related to their functions.
    In order to better accomplish its task, the Assembly can endorse a particular regulation, possibily through consensus or, if not possibile, with majority.
    The Assembly, after a previous judgment of the Court of Justice, must endorse sanctions and punishments to all Member States which disrespect this Founding Treaty.
    The Assembly must vote its President, who oversees and moderate its sessions, with a mandate of six months, not immediately renewable, with a majority system.”

    Most of the power is removed from the Assembly and given to the Council of Monarchs and the Council of Ministers.

    Article 6

    Most of article 4 is deleted with reference to the General Secretary, which is now defined here.

    “The Secretary General is the executive branch of the SECURS. He represents the Union, oversees (in the most important cases) the sessions of the Assembly, can suggest to the Assembly itself grounds for debate and eventually propose resolutions or recommendations; he also supports the WA Delegate during the sessions of the High Commission for International Affairs, being able to submit to the opinion of the Commission matters of particular concerns in its field of action; he can operate similarly with the Council for Economical Affairs.
    The Secratariat is also the bailee and guarantee of all treaties concluded between Member States, which have to be submitted to him within one week after the ratification.”

    The representing SECURS role is now with the Head of SECURS

    Some parts are allocated to the new Head of SECURS:

    “The position of Secretary General is held by the Head of State of the Kingdom of New Tarajan, as the Founder Nation of the Union, but he can abdicate this function: in this case, the mandate will become annual, and subject to the Assembly vote, with a majority of two thirds of its Members.”

    Re-defined General Secretary now elected by the Assembly annually and like the President of the original Council for Economical Affairs it is not immediately renewable.

    The new General Secretary chair the assembly and the new Council of Ministers.

    There are no longer two Vice-Secretaries – “The Secretary is assisted by two Vice-Secretaries, personally choosen by him with the consent of the Assembly, who can covert his rule when absent.” is deleted and replaced with:

    “The General Secretary may appoint a Vice Secretary who does not have to be a member of the Assembly to deputise in the Secretary’s absence and to assist the General Secretary.”

    The creation of a bureaucracy responsible to the General Secretary is implied with the addition of “The General Secretary may employ staff.”

    All of the original article 6 is deleted including the reference to the WA Delegate –

    “The High Commission for International Affairs is the main body of the SECURS devoted to the promotion, instauration and support of diplomatic relations between SECURS and other organizations and nations.
    It is also devoted to the promotion and progress of International Law, through the enactment of resolutions, recommendations and conventions between Member States or between the SECURS and other organizations. The endorsement is through a qualified majority of the two thirds of the Commission.
    It is composed by three delegates for each Member States, and its President is the SECURS WA Delegate, elected each year by the Assembly by simple majority.
    In order to provide a stable, reliable and effective international role to the SECURS, the endorsement to the WA Delegate activities is compulsory, except in the case of violation of the Treaty itself and its fundamental principles.
    The Commission is the hub of diplomatic activities of all Member States, and it can enact binding resolutions in the field of international relations, in order to provide the SECURS with a homogeneous international diplomacy.
    The Commission, if necessary, could decree an internal regulation by consensus.”

    International relations are returned to each member nation (which seems to be how member nations think it is anyway) but there are some constraints with regard to trade (no more independent trade treaties with non-members).

    Article 7 Court of Justice

    Hopefully all references to “the Union” have been replaced with SECURS throughout.

    “The Court of Justice of the Union is the main judicial body of the SECURS. Its main goal is to provide consultation and arbitrage for all Member States and the Assembly, and to promote the respect and progress of International Law.
    It is composed by three judges, elected by the Assembly, with the approval of the Secretary General, among the Member States.” Deleted and replaced with:

    “The Court of Justice is the judicial body of the SECURS composed of one senior judge from each member nation. Its main role is to arbitrate and judge disputes between member nations. It can also issue advice to the Assembly, the Council of Monarchs and the Council of Ministers regarding any matter under consideration.”

    “The Court could be audited by a single Member State in order to request arbitrage for disputes with another Member State. Its judgment is binding; however, the same States could request another opinion on the same matter after two months (and within six months). After this, the new judgment is definitive.
    In case one of the judges (Member State) is directly involved in the question posed to the Court, then the other two judges will choiche a temporary substitute among the other Member States not directly affected by the question itself.” Deleted and replaced with:

    “Any member nation may bring a case against any other member nation for arbitration and judgement. Three judges (not including anyone from the nations in dispute) shall hear the case and either arbitrate or issue a judgement. If not appealed within three months the decision is binding on both parties and if necessary shall be imposed by the military of member nations. If there is an appeal a new set of three judges (not including anyone from the nations in dispute) shall hear the case and either arbitrate or issue a judgement. If this decision is the same as the first one it is binding. If a different decision is reached then it will become binding after three months if not appealed. If appealed then a third set of three judges (not including anyone from the nations in dispute) shall hear the case and either arbitrate or issue a judgement. This decision is final and binding on all parties.”

    “The Court has also the responsibility to correctly interpret this Founding Treaty in case of gaps or misunderstandigs, and to supervise the respect of the Treaty itslef, eventually submiting to the Assembly a case of disrespect, with the obligation to follow as strictly as possibile the principles and ideals which lay behind the Treaty itself.” Deleted and replaced with:

    “The full Court of Justice has the power to interpret all treaties of SECURS and decisions of the Assembly, Council of Monarchs and Council of Ministers.”

    New clause – “Each member nation shall also submit the names of two other senior judges who can be involved in hearing cases when necessary. A substitute should always be considered when an appeal is required to ensure there is at least one permanent judge available for the second appeal if necessary.”

    Article 8 Council of Ministers – all new and very powerful.

    “To setup the Council of Ministers, composed of individual ministers of each member nation. It could be composed of the first ministers of each member nation. It could be composed of the financial ministers of each member nation. It could be composed of the Business and Industry ministers of each member nation. The composition changes depending on the topics being discussed as agreed by the Assembly or Council of Monarchs in their recommendation to the Council. Decisions shall be unanimous for them to apply to all member nations. If they are by majority vote then those of the minority may opt-out of that requirement. This Council can create new Committees, Commissions and Institutions by majority vote that apply to those nations whose minister vote for them. Those who are in the minority may sign up their nations to these new Committees, Commissions and Institutions at any time thereafter.”

    This also replaces unassigned power of the original Article 1 clause –

    “This goal will be promoted both with common measures by the Assembly and with the foundation of Committees, Commissions and Institutions inside the SECURS.”

    Article 9 SECURS Standard Committee – new

    Has some of the functions of the Council for Economical Affairs, but is part of the bureaucracy of SECURS and I assume would be made up of bureaucrats from each member nation who have experience of their nations standards regime.

    “To setup the SECURS Standard Committee, composed of one person from each member nations. The SECURS standard committee shall elect one of its number to be the Chair of the committee to chair meetings and represent the committee to other institutions of SECURS.

    The SECURS Standard Committee shall consider the national standards of each member nation and to either unanimously agree a SECURS wide standard or by majority vote recommend a standard to the Assembly to decide if it should be considered by the Council of Monarchs or the Council of Ministers.

    Any member nation can request that the SECURS Standard Committee consider questions regarding the standards of another member nation to ensure that it is not a form of unfair discrimination against similar products from other member nations. It shall reach a recommendation on the issue for it to be passed to the Assembly to decide if it should be considered by the Council of Monarchs or the Council of Ministers.”

    Article 10 all new regarding finances

    “SECURS shall have its own budget and may employ people to further its aims. Each member nation shall contribute to SECURS in proportion to its GDP and the GDP of the other member nations. Disputes over the contributions shall be resolved in the Council of Monarchs or the Council of Ministers.”

    Article 11 new

    “The subjects of each member state shall be allowed to travel to all other member states without the need for a visa.”

    Allowing free movement of people within SECURS, but could be added to later to include free movement of labour for those nations who wish it.

    Article 12 new exit and explicit entry clauses

    “Any member nation may leave SECURS by giving adequate notice and negotiating how the exit will happen within the Council of Ministers.

    New member nations may apply for membership and if two-thirds of the Council of Monarchs agrees they shall become members once they have signed the relevant treaties and protocols.”

    Article 13 based on original article 8

    “This Treaty will become immediately effective after the affixing of the signatures by Member States.” Kept.
    “Before the apposition, a State could submit a reserve toward one or at least two Arcticle of the Treaty, justifying its position. In this case, the Assembly have to decide about the matter, approving or not the membership of this State.” Deleted and replaced with:

    “Any State before signing the treaty can submit a reserve toward one or at least two Articles of the Treaty, justifying its position. In this case, the Council of Monarchs shall decide whether that nation shall be approved or not to the membership of SECURS.
    Any new nation applying for membership shall set out which majority passed regulation, committees, commissions and institutions it wishes to have a reserve to opt-out.”

    Article 14 – new allowing none monarchies to join but with no representation on the Council of Monarchs.

    “Nations without a monarch may join SECURS. They will have the same rights and duties as other members of SECURS except they will not be represented on the Council of Monarchs. These nations may sign up to any new Committees, Commissions and Institutions or reforms agreed by the Council of Monarchs when they wish to.”

    Article 15 replaces Epilogue

    “This Treaty can be modified by the Assembly, with a qualified majority of two thirds of the votes.
    Abstention or not participation are not considered for the formation of the majority.” Deleted and replaced with:

    “This Treaty can be modified by the Council of Monarchs or by the Council of Ministers, and if done by a majority those in the minority shall have the right to opt-out of those new terms they haven’t voted in favour of.”

    I like the treaty with less integration. But, with that said, here are my changes to said treaty:

    • Preamble: What do we have against communism, exactly? Would a communist nation be allowed to join SECURS?
    • Article 1: "disputes with other Member States peaceful within..." should be reworded to "disputes with other Member States peacefully within..."
    • Article 4: This article has no real purpose. Why do we need an official head of SECURS, who will have very little power at all? And, it should seem obvious, looking at who is posting, that New Tarajan is a very active member. Basically, I am saying that New Tarajan should be the unofficial head of SECURS, rather than the official one.
    • Article 5: This article should be placed directly after Article 3. Also, why must all decisions be unanimous?
    • Article 7: 2/3 of the Council of Monarchs seems to high. I would have gone with somewhere near 57%, since it is more than a majority, but still less than 66%.
    • I would want to add Article 14 from the original suggested treaty (the one with more integration).

    For the Military Protocols-

    • I prefer the first preamble to the less-integration one.
    • Article 2: "Only those member states who have sighed this memorandum..." should be reworded to "Only those member states who have signed this memorandum..."
    • I prefer Articles 4, 5, and 6 of the first one rather than the less-integration one.


    (OOC: diffchecker.com allowed me to compare the two articles side-by-side)
