Article II: Sovereignty

Both nations accept the responsibility of respecting each other’s sovereignty. Neither shall interfere with any of the other’s affairs, whether they are external or internal, unless agreed upon in the treaty.

Article III: Non-Aggression

Both nations agree to never attack the other nation, whether it is directly through an attack on their land, or indirectly through a third party attack.

Economic assistance is understood to mean donating funds, gifting, or the selling or trading of weapons and other war material to the enemy. In addition, any wars between the two nations created by proxy within the game, such as those initiated when an MPP with a another partner is engaged, must be ended immediately by both nations. Additionally, neither nation may engage in or in any way support an internal coup within the other nation.

Each nation agrees to the renewal of an MPP every month, and both nations agree to share the cost 50/50.
