The Federated States of Orbis, also referred to as the FSO, is an international force for cooperation between governments. The FSO will provide a way for governments of any State, regardless of size, wealth or military might, to carry an equal voice on an international stage.
The FSO will be an associated entity that will not be under the claim of any government and instead will be open to all and governed by all. The Federated States of Orbis strives to create a Bloc of military, diplomatic, and economic cooperation between all its members and beyond. It was created to forge stronger bonds between alliances and to coordinate beneficial actions that would affect all members of the Bloc, whether it be Defense, Trade, or Treaty negotiations. A member of any aligned State is represented in the FSO and its Council.
Article I: Representation
The FSO will be composed of as many members as the convened States (known more commonly as Alliances) wish to have in attendance provided that the States all met the requirements for membership. These assigned members will be referred to, in all forms of communication, as Council Representatives with the dedicated Executive Representatives being referred to as Councilors. Representatives will serve the Councilors in the manner the Councilors require along with their native duties within the FSO.
For an alliance to gain membership along with gain the ability to field Councilors and Representatives, they must get a Qualified Majority (66% of all Councilors) to vote in favor of entry. They must also meet the following requisites:
- A minimum member count of five (5)
- A written agreement to follow all FSO Resolutions
- The willingness and ability to offer and accept Mutual Defense and Optional Aggression Pacts (MDoAP) for all other Member States
- Enforcement of these MDoAPs are subject to the individual jurisdiction of the government that they reside
- Acknowledgment of the authority vested to the Councilors
Article II: Councilors
The FSO gives each Member State the opportunity of having two members serve on the United Council. These Councilors will be the sole voting Representatives of their respective alliances and will convey the will of their alliance to the States Council.
The Councilors of each alliance are nominated to service by the Leader of the alliance looking to nominate Councilors. A Councilor may not be recalled during the first thirty (30) days of their appointment to the States Council.
Article III: States Council Sessions
General Council Sessions may happen as frequently as called upon by a sitting Councilor. Any motion to call the Council to a session by any Member State must be seconded by another Councilor. If the motion passes, a Council Session must be convened as soon as possible.
General Council Sessions must be held once every month with a required Session being held on the last day of the month if no previous Session was called over the course of the month. When an End-of-Month Session is called, all Councilors have the opportunity to either bring a Resolution to the Floor or call for a motion to close the Session.
Every Councilor also has the option of declaring an Emergency Council Session if a situation is deemed to be of the utmost urgency; such as mass war, nuclear strikes, or the disbandment of a Member Alliance.
Article IV: Council Resolutions
During either a called Council Session or an End-of-Month Session, those Alliances with Councilors have the right to bring to the States Council any Resolution they wish to pass. Any and all resolutions will require a three-fifths majority (excluding non-votes and votes of abstention) by all voting members with any passed Resolutions being a binding document for all Council States regardless of their vote.
A Resolution has three opportunities when brought to the Council; Vote, Amendment or Councilor Veto. In a Vote, the Resolution is called to be voted upon by the voting members. The Resolution is presented as is with no amendments. In an Amendment motion, the Resolution is brought off the floor to consider changes to the original Resolution before being sent back to the floor. In Membership Veto, the Council declines to hear the Resolution and no vote is held. A Membership Veto is called and must pass with a simple majority.
To call for a Councilor Veto, the Councilor making the motion for veto must state a reason for why this wish to dismiss the resolution, to the Council-at-Large. Councilors must consider the motion, along with the provided reason, and rule whether to allow the veto or to allow movement to voting.
Any Resolution passed by the Council is considered binding is all Member States are under obligation to enforce it. If a Member State were to fail to enforce a Resolution that was lawfully passed, they may be subject to penalties as issued by the Council. There are, however, subjects that cannot be ruled on by the Council. These are:
- The reassignment, removal, or conditional clauses of Member State sovereignty
- Appointment of another member to the Leader position of another alliance
- Rule on matters of internal policy (player bans, discord rule violations, etc)
- The States may make an agreement regarding these affairs but they cannot be upheld as a Resolution would
