Diplomatic Statuses:

Subjugation (SUB): A treaty whereby a dominant entity forcibly imposes obedience or servitude of another entity in most matters.

Declaration of War (WAR): A formal announcement by a faction/nation or other body with military capability that it is in a state of war with another such entity.

Non-Contact (NC): A formal agreement between entities that they will endeavor to avoid contact whenever possible between their respective vessels and citizens. Such an agreement provides no articles against hostility between each entity, just that whenever the two parties meet they will endeavor to go their separate ways leaving a respective neutral boundary between them.

None (N): No diplomatic relations or treaties have been made between these factions/entities.

Non-Aggression (NA): A non-aggression pact is a treaty between two factions/nations/entities agreeing to avoid war or armed conflict between them and resolve their disputes through peaceful negotiations. Sometimes such a pact may include a pledge of avoiding armed conflict even if participants find themselves fighting a third entity, including allies of one of the participants. A non-aggression pact also prohibits the entrance of military and commercial trading vessels of one entity into the other entities territorial spaces under penalty of destruction or capture without the need to return. Such actions should not be a valid reason for escalating conflict to full scale war.

Trade Alliance (TA): A trade alliance is an arrangement among participating factions/nations/entities to allow free trade between their citizens in terms of goods and supplies such as raw materials, finished products (furniture, ammunition, weapons, armor plating, etc.) but not in terms of vessel/vehicle/station designs or manufactured vessels/vehicles/stations. Vessels must respond to one anothers distress calls.

Research Alliance (RA): A research alliance is an arrangement among participating factions/nations/entities to allow free trade between their citizens in terms vessel/vehicle/station designs or manufactured vessels/vehicles/stations but not in terms of goods and supplies such as raw materials, finished products (furniture, ammunition, weapons, armor plating, etc.) Vessels must respond to one anothers distress calls.

Trade & Research Alliance (TRA): A trade & research alliance is an arrangement among participating factions/nations/entities to allow free trade between their citizens in terms of goods and supplies such as raw materials, finished products (furniture, ammunition, weapons, armor plating, etc.), vessel/vehicle/station designs and manufactured vessels/vehicles/stations. Entities MUST also allow the creation of a trading outpost within their territorial holdings for other alliance entities upon their request. Vessels must respond to one anothers distress calls.


Military Alliance (MA): A military alliance is an arrangement among participant factions/nations/entities to commit support in defense of a member entity if it is attacked by another state outside the organization. Each faction or entity retains their own independent command rights but must be able to provide forces for communal offense and defense of members. Entities MUST also allow the creation of an embassy within their territorial holdings for other alliance entities upon their request.

Partnership (PAR): A partnership is an arrangement among participant factions/nations/entities to commit support in defense of a member entity if it is attacked by another state outside the organization. A partnership takes a military alliance one step further by allowing all members of the organization equal access to military facilities and stockpiled supplies within their own territorial holdings. Integrated, liaison assigned and other forms of command may exist here such that an officer of higher rank in another entities serving military can issue orders to lower ranking members of a different entities own serving military freely. All entities that are entered into a partnership MUST have embassies or the option to have embassies within each others territorial holdings.


Protectorate (PRO): A Protectorate is an autonomous faction/nation/entity that is protected diplomatically and militarily against third parties by a stronger faction/nation or entity. In exchange for this, the protectorate usually accepts and abides by specified obligations from the stronger entity, which may vary greatly, depending on the real nature of their relationship. However, the Protectorate retains its formal sovereignty, and remains a state under universal law. An entity subject to this type of arrangement is also known as a protected state.



-Anyone may submit their factions names and status for updates here.
-Conglomerates my list all participating subgroups with their own separate statuses.
-You may suggest new treaty categories.

-Diplomacy Matrix Updates will only occur if the terms of the treaty are specified in a post within this thread in short or full detail.

Pinned per request.

Incoming Transmission
Origin: IUN 881; Selfless Heart; Flagship of 6thOF, Imperial Ural Navy

To whom it may concern;

The IUN at this point in time, has no wish to enter into bloody combat with the Colonial Armed Forces (CAF), or His Divine Navy (HDN). Such a conflict would be pointless in this day and age, and as such, we put forward this treaty for a Non-Aggression Pact

These are the terms we offer:

1: Each empire will keep it's current territory, which will be regarded as untouchable by means of military act (including, but not limited to invasion, blockades, economic sanctions). These empires are free to expand and operate their territories how they wish, so long as it does not interfere with another nation in this treaty.

2: Each empire will agree never to send military vessels of any kind (including tankers, fleet support and repair vessels) across any empire's borders listed in this treaty without permission from the empire in which the border zone belongs. Any military ships that do cross this line without authorisation are subject to the Desires Of Owning Empire.

3: Each Empire agrees to offer support in the terms of non-combat assets to an Empire noted in this treaty (Including fleet support, tankers and repair vessels) Should they be requested by another Empire. STRICTLY no joint military combat action is to be undertaken by any party against another empire, listed in this treaty or not. (Pirates are not subject to the Rule of War (Hauges Conventions of New Zealand, 2193) and thus do not prevent Empires in this treaty from acting together against them. The same follows for none alligned entities, such as merc. groups and freelancers.)

Clarity:
Desires Of The Owning Empire: This means that the officers on site at the incident (And their superiors) in question have complete control over what happens. In short, a violation of this treaty resulting in this as the response means that those individual ships performing the violation lose their protective rights granted in this treaty, and count as freelancers and mercs as in Section 4 of this treaty.

Respond at leisure;

(Signed In Confidence)

Message towards: HDN
From: iHelp Agency
#~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~#
Basis of message:

The iHelp Agency wants to propose a treaty with the HDN.

Here's  what we want:

1: To be able to fly in your sectors of space to rescue people and also when protecting them. (you also get to fly in our sectors)

2: For you not to attack the people we're protecting. If it's in your space and they're wanted in there then we'll gladly hand them over for trial.

3: We also want a Non-Aggressive pact as to not shoot each other.

What we can offer in return is a discount of 20% on ships we will produce for mass production.

End.

iHelp Agency wants to make a agreement in such a way to be considered a Non-Aggressive Treaty.

Now we do want this, but we need these terms confirmed:

1: We'll be given access to your sectors to rescue people stranded on planets. If they're wanted toward your empire we'll hand them over, but only if we rescued them when they were in your sector. If they weren't then we can't get involved.

2: You do not attack people we are protecting. If they're wanted toward you and we're protecting them in your sector we'll then hand them over.

3: We will not attack each others' ships.

End Transmission.

Incoming Transmission
Origin: IUN 881; Selfless Heart; Flagship of 6thOF, Imperial Ural Navy

To whom it may concern;

This matter was refered to the Serran Council for consideration. At this point in time, the IUN has decided to side unto caution and not to sign the treaty as it is presented. The IUN's offical position on your corporation is that of Freelances, noted in the Hauges Conventions of New Zealand, 2193, and to this end, benefit from being considered non-combatants until actions otherwise change that stance. Several other issues were outlined, but these are listed below.

1: We'll be given access to your sectors to rescue people stranded on planets. If they're wanted toward your empire we'll hand them over, but only if we rescued them when they were in your sector. If they weren't then we can't get involved.

The IUN maintains the strictist border policies, and ships entering Ural territory must submit to sensor sweeps of the cargo hold areas before being permitted access across the border line. This section of the treaty also maks it clear that your corporation would be avoidant of patrols in order to get IUN suspects out of IUN custody. This we cannot allow. In addition, the IUN maintains it's own SAR Groups in which they are most effeicent.

2: "You do not attack people we are protecting. If they're wanted toward you and we're protecting them in your sector we'll then hand them over."

All ships within Ural Territory space are subject to Desires Of The Owning Empire until which time they depart.

3: We will not attack each others' ships.

Your Corporations rights are protected by the Hauges Convention of New Zealand, 2193, and as such, are not required as additionals in this treaty.

Clarity:
Desires Of The Owning Empire: This means that the officers on site at the incident (And their superiors) in question have complete control over what happens. In short, a violation of this treaty (or Hauges Convention) means that the vessel(s) in question become subjects of the Nation/Body in question, and as such, Rule of War no longer applies. The Nation/Body is free to act upon these subjects as they wish (Which may include, but not limited to destruction of vessels, indefinite imprison, death penalty etc.)

iHelp sees your concerns with our put forth treaty and we're ready to amend it:

4: We will go through with all border checks/sweeps and you can check everything on our ships. We will not take people who are wanted in your sector away from it.

5: We'll follow all laws inside your sector at any given time.

I hope this clears everything up.

~INTERSTELLAR DIPLOMATIC TRANSMISSION
~TO: All Alliances, Clans, Factions, etc.
~FROM: iHelp Agency
~ORIGIN: iHelp Under-Construction Space Frigate

#~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~#
Begin Transmission:
Protect the weaklings, rescue the stranded, help the entire universe.

iHelp seeks an interstellar Non-Aggressive treaty. We want to become a part of every faction as a rescuer and protector. To do this we need to not be fired upon by the faction that owns the sector we're in. Here's the treaty I propose:

1: To grant us access into your sectors. You may check our ships anytime you want. So if you have to do a border check/sweep we'll comply and let you no matter what.

2: To not attack the people we're protecting/rescuing. If we're in your sector and the said person is wanted then we'll bring him to you gladly. If he is not in your sector but is wanted toward an empire we still can't bring him to you, but we wont protect him either(still would rescue though).

3: To not attack our own citizens unless they've gone rouge and have broken one of your rules.

4: In your sector we'll follow all your rules.

If these are good rules and you accept this treaty then reply. If it's not good and it needs amendments then tell us what those amendments are. We will not add an amendment to bring you wanted people if we rescue them outside your sector though. Only if they're in your sector will we do that.

End Transmission.

   Greetings lifeforms!

   We at the Federation of Intergalactic Suppliers and Haulers would like to extend a hand of friendship to all Empires, Alliances, Monarchies, and any other government or corporate bodies in this sector.

   As our name suggests, we are a group of industrial factions who have joined together for mutual benefit. It would honor us greatly to do business with any interested entities. We will always remain neutral in any conflicts between parties, unless this threatens our organization directly. We trade with anyone and everyone and prefer to hold no grudges. We will never deny any faction the right to do business with us, regardless of that faction's diplomatic standing or ideals and beliefs.

   Also, we already have contracts with the IUN and iHelp, and would like that information added to the Diplomatic Matrix for public review.

   If any entities are interested in discussing business, feel free to visit our public Hypernet page <see signature below>

What is the nature of these contracts? Trade Alliances? Non-Agression Pacts?, etc.

ISO considers itself at full scale war with HDN and FISH, as blatant examples of large and oppressive regimes.  As for the others, ISO generally doesn't deal in treaties with groups preferring individual contracts.  That said, any iHelp medical/repair vessels will not be considered valid targets.  If iHelp command agrees, we will sign a binding non-aggression pact.
