|The (Upgraded) Purple Ice Protocol|
The (Upgraded) Purple Ice Protocol is a Mutual Defense and Optional Aggression Pact signed between Polaris and the United Purple Nations. The treaty is an upgrade of the Purple Ice Protocol, a protectorate treaty between the two alliances.
Article I: Nonaggression
Polaris and United Purple Nations will hereafter refrain from any form of hostile activity, hereafter defined as military force, internal subversion, or espionage of any kind, against the other.
Article II: Conduct
Signatories of this pact pledge to show only respect and good will towards each other. While this will prohibit outright verbal hostility in all its forms, it will not restrict healthy debate or productive disagreement.
Article III: Mutual Defense
Should either signatory be subject to an act of aggression, they are well within their rights to request military support, which the other signatory is obligated to provide. In the event that one of the alliances is attacked as a result of an activation of another treaty, the Mutual Defense then becomes optional.
Article IV: Optional Aggression
Should either signatory find it necessary to commit an act of aggression upon a third party, they may request military support from the other signatory, though this request is under no circumstances an obligation.
Article V: Assistance
Should either signatory come into need of aid of either political or financial aid, they may request such support as is necessary from the other signatory. It is recognized, however, that this request is in no way an obligation.
Article VI: Intelligence
Should vital knowledge of a political or military nature come to the attention of one signatory, they are required to share it with the other.
Article VII: Cancellation
It is the hope of both signatories that this pact may last forever, or until the bond it represents grows to the point where an upgrade is merited. Given the uncertainties of the future, however, it is recognized that should any of the above Articles be violated, or should some major irreparable disagreement arise, that this pact maybe cancelled after 72 hours notice.
