Welcome to the United Purple Nations.


Contents

Overview

The United Purple Nations (UPN) is a democratic purple alliance founded on 12/15/2013. The UPN has briefly entered the top 8 three times before earning sanction status.

The United Purple Nations puts a strong emphasis on three core values: liberty, prosperity, and peace. By these principles, UPN strides to bring peace and stability to all the inhabitants of Orbis.

Migration

Hailing from a distant land known as Digiterra, the United Purple Nations was founded by Outburst and quickly other Settlers followed. Outburst, along with Underlordgc, PiratePaul, Kappa, Emperor666, and Guardofthedragon, ratified "The Purple Documents" a month later which outlined the basic tenents of government and affirming the membership's freedoms.

UPN Charter

The UPN government is bound by a charter. This document has been re-written and amended multiple times throughout UPN history.

The current charter is included below, and previous editions are available on the UPN Archive.

Former Charters

2014 - 2016 charter - "The Purple Documents"

2016-2017 charter - "The Constitution of the United Purple Nations"

2017 - 2021 charter

Current Charter - "The Ribenaberry Convention"

The United Purple Nations ("UPN") exists to provide an approachable, all-purple alliance to its members and friends; provide her members with safety against war and oppression; offer education and advice on how to advance the nations under her care; maintain a friendly, open and democratic community where everyone’s voice is heard. In return, every member helps the alliance and respects and honours not only their fellow members but all purple nations, as well as honouring all the United Purple Nations' treated allies and friends.

I. Laws & Policies


Civil Liberties

Each member of UPN has the liberty to exercise freedom of speech, expression, association, and belief within the bounds of non-aggression. Members have the right to control their own nations as they see fit, provided it does not directly harm UPN or abuse any nation. No law or policy may be made to infringe on these liberties.

Immigration

Any nation wishing to join UPN is required to enter the applicant pool of UPN and must not be at war with other nations or be a member of another alliance. The government of UPN may implement additional application requirements, processes, and standards of training before any nation is inducted as a member. Nations flying the “United Purple Nations” as the Alliance Affiliation but have not been inducted as a member may still have their right to safety and liberty guaranteed provided, they have obeyed the laws of the alliance.

The Welfare State

UPN strives to provide members with benefits such as city funding, war aid, loans, and other various financial programs. Members who wish to leave the alliance within six months of receiving aid from UPN are required to repay the full sum they received. UPN reserves the right to modify this timeframe for certain aid programmes. The government of UPN is free to impose requirements that need to be met in order to be eligible for funding.

Raiding Policy

Members of UPN are not allowed to raid any nation residing in an alliance with 10 members or more, nor can they raid members of an alliance with an active Protectorate or Defence treaty. In addition, all raiders must acknowledge that they are responsible for their own actions and that the alliance is not obligated to assist them should their run through another nations’ wheat field turn out badly.

Activity Policy (Purple and Out)

Members of the United Purple Nations may be removed after one week of inactivity if they have not previously contacted a government member. Nations removed for activity are free to re-apply to UPN after becoming active once again.

Anti-Asshat Policy

Don’t be an asshat. Any member found to be acting like an asshat will be treated like an asshat and expelled at the discretion of the Minister for Internal Affairs and Prime Minster of UPN.

II. Government

Prime Minister

The Prime Minister is the leader of the United Purple Nations. The Prime Minister’s primary responsibilities include setting the overall direction for the alliance, advising the Senators on appropriate ministerial appointments, overseeing the Ministers, suggesting suitable members of the alliance to be masked as Elders and declaring war (as ratified by a majority of the Senators). They also have the responsibility to stand-in for any Minister who is absent as required or to request this from a fellow member of the United Purple Nations.

Chancellor (Chief of Staff)

The Chancellor acts as the Prime Minister’s deputy and their primary responsibility is to lead the alliance if the Prime Minister is not present or missing. During such times they share the same responsibilities as the Prime Minister. The Chancellor will work closely with the Prime Minister at other times to ensure the smooth operation of the alliance.

Senators

The elected Senators represent the members of the Alliance in government and are the sovereign body of the alliance. They can vote on treaties with other alliances and changes of internal policy with a simple majority and have a 24-hour window to do so. They, along with the Prime Minister and Chancellor are responsible for appointing the Ministers and the replacement of a minister that is underperforming. They also are responsible for amalgamating and creating new Departments as they see fit. It is expected that a Minister who is incapacitated or missing without prior agreement will be replaced by the Senators.

Elders

Alliance Elders have no legislative or executive power. They access to every channel of communication in the alliance in order advise as they consider necessary. This expertise may be acted on by the other members of government as they see fit.

Ministers

The Ministers have the responsibility of making all executive decisions that fall within their jurisdiction and are the primary organisers of the alliance. They may appoint Deputies as needed to help them fulfil this.

In some situations, a department may be directly administered by the Prime Minister or the Senators – in this case the department would be merged into their office.

Ministerial posts may be created or amalgamated as required by a vote of Senators, however the ministerial posts at the time of ratification are below:

The Minister of Defence

The Minister of Defence is responsible for all defence affairs. Their duties include preparing the alliance stockpile, organising and co-ordinating counterattacks, monitoring the state of foreign powers, dealing with raiders, distributing direct military aid and liaising with other alliance’s defence departments for joint operations.

The Minister of Finance

The Minister of Finance is responsible for the UPN central bank. Their responsibilities include organising city and project aid programmes, maintenance of taxation, ensuring the security of the UPN bank. The finance minister will co-ordinate with other departments to ensure the efficient distribution of funds.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs

The Minister of Foreign Affairs is responsible for all foreign relations. Their duties include negotiating new treaties, recommending treaties to be amended, maintaining good relations with allies, dealing with hostile negotiations during raiding, maintaining active embassies and to help represent the alliance during peace negotiations during war.

The Minister of Internal Affairs

The Minister of Internal Affairs is responsible for the administration of all UPN communication channels and internal systems and ensuring that the spirit and law of this charter are followed. They are responsible for maintenance of the communication channels and security roles within the alliance and maintaining the member database.


The minister for Internal Affairs is responsible for overseeing the operation of elections, as well as the security of the alliance from outside interference.

The Minister of Communications

The Minister of Communications, working as part of Internal Affairs, is responsible for making sure that the whole alliance is well-informed.

They are responsible for maintenance of the alliance branding, home page, flags, graphics and Discord. They are also responsible for announcements, the Purple Archive, and ensuring that members are kept informed about the direction of the alliance.

The Minister of Education

The Minister of Education, working closely with Internal Affairs and Finance, is responsible for next generation of UPN members. They are responsible for attracting new members, advertisement, writing and maintaining guides, advising new members on how best to grow their nation, distributing aid to new members, and maintaining the alliance Academy programme – helping applicants on their journey to graduation.

The Minister of Regional Affairs

The Minister of Regional Affairs, working as part of Foreign Affairs, is responsible for the organising and protecting of UPN protectorates. The minister will advise on how to best develop their alliance, keeping them well-informed, coordinating with the Ministry of Defence if direct action is required and ensuring that they follow the conditions of their protection. This also includes facilitating multilateral working between the Alliance and its’ protectorates.

lll. Election (Senators and the Prime Minister)

The Senators serve a six-month term. The Senators are elected by the people, and any member can stand to become a Senator. A vote shall then be held under supervision of the Minister of Internal Affairs and the winning candidates are sworn in as Senators for the next parliamentary term.

Proportional representation will be used to ensure that every voice is heard.

The number of Senators is set to one Senator per ten Members of UPN (including Academy members) with a minimum of four cities, plus one Senator.

After election, the Senators choose amongst their number a Prime Minister. If there is disagreement the majority determines, with tiebreakers determined by the Senator with the oldest alliance seniority. The Senators and Prime Minister are collectively known as the Senate.

The Prime Minister will remain in this post as long as they maintain the confidence of a majority of the Senate.

In the event of war, an election may be postponed for a maximum of three months beyond its’ scheduled date. If peace is acquired before this time, a late election would be held one week after this agreement comes into force.

IV. Appointment (Chancellor, Ministers, Deputies and Elders)

The Chancellor is directly appointed by the Prime Minister and serves as long as the Prime Minister requires. A new Prime Minister can retain the existing Chancellor or appoint a new one.

The Ministers are appointed by the Senate and serve as long as required. It is expected that Senators will replace Ministers who are underperforming.

Ministers that breech the “purple and out” policy are replaced immediately.

The Deputies are directly appointed by the Ministers are required without outside interference.

The Elders are appointed by the approval of a majority of the Senate as suggested by the Prime Minister. This is a lifetime appointment for as long as they maintain membership of UPN. The Elder role is intended for past leadership of exceptionally long service to be able to carry on advising the alliance.

There is no rule against individuals having multiple roles. It would be quite common for a Senator to also be a Minister for example.

Ministers are automatically eligible for replacement after a 30-day period of inactivity, even if this is with prior notice.

V. Removal of Membership

The Prime Minister, Chancellor and the Minister of Internal Affairs hold the power to rescind the membership of any person who is not a member of government who is in clear violation of the rules or charter of UPN. If there is an uncertainty of the clarity of the violation, then a Senatorial vote shall decide the matter.

VI. Removal of an elected Government Member

An elected member of UPN government can be voted out of power if found guilty of violating the trust of the alliance. The vote to remove a Prime Minister or Senator requires a two-thirds majority of the Senate to be in favour of doing so (excluding the individual under review).

VII: Executive Officers

Upon need, the Prime Minister of the United Purple Nations may appoint an Executive Officer to carry out specific objectives for a period decided on by the Senate. An appointed executive officer has the authority to carry out the specific objective as detailed by the Prime Minister, but with the constraint that the Senate can overrule and depose Executive Officer by a majority vote.

VIII. Amendment

The Constitution can be modified by a 2/3 majority vote from the Senate. If not all of the Senate has voted after 7 days, those who have not given opinions will count as having abstained from the vote.

IX. Ratification

We, the membership of these United Purple Nations, hold this Constitution as accurate to the will of the membership and agree to the specifications contained herein. We accept the rules of this document as the UPN constitution in full.
