The Treaty of Lake Calenhad

The South Pacific and The Order of the Grey Wardens, recognizing our shared defender values and close historical ties, hereby enter into this alliance for friendship, mutual defense, and military partnership.

Article I. Mutual Recognition of Government Legitimacy

Section 1. The parties to this treaty recognize as legitimate governments that government espoused by the authoritative representatives of each region, and will not extend that recognition to any government otherwise represented.

Section 2. The South Pacific shall be authoritatively represented by the government of the Coalition of the South Pacific, embodied principally for these purposes jointly by the Prime Minister as head of government and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, unless the Council of Regional Security, as the Coalition’s security institution, lawfully declares a state of emergency, in which case it shall be authoritative for the duration of the state of emergency. The respective military authority of the South Pacific is the South Pacific Special Forces (SPSF), embodied principally by the Minister of Defense and the General Corps.

Section 3. The Order of the Grey Wardens shall be authoritatively represented by the First Warden as its head of governance, or in their absence by the High Constable, or in their absence by the collective of Warden-Commanders.

Section 4. Should the government of either party change, authoritative representation will be performed by the corresponding functionally equivalent positions or institutions.

Section 5. A “territory” of either party shall be a region which exists under the sovereign protection or control of the party’s legitimate government. In order for a territory or home region to be afforded protections under this treaty, it must be listed below:
