National Bio: The island of Coloterra was undiscovered and uninhabited until the 4th century A.D, when several nomadic peoples of Latin origin began to colonize from the continents of Amasia and Lemuria. Eventually, Coloterra became divided by small kingdoms that were centered around individual villages, and were also havens for pirates and barbarians . In 932, the Linzabali, a confederation of barbarian hordes orignially from Zybodia and Kaaklivata landed in Iovonna, the capital of the Kingdom of Arixvennza. The invaders rapidly conquered and pillaged the town. In two years, the Linzabali made the entire Cavilan coast of Coloterra as theirs. In the wake of those massive conquests, a treaty was signed by five kingdoms to rise against the Linzabali hordes. Those nation were Novenzi, Cartanna, Syrta, Invernamil, and Arion. The invasion of the barbarian lands began in 936, beginning with the bloodshed in the Austrevera Valley campaign. Once the armies of the five kingdoms reached Canera, they ventured to the northwest, and took over the rest of Arixvenzza. Sant Tomas would be taken over by The Kingdom of Invernamil. The entire Linzabali people in the island, however, would not be defeated, as they would later settle down into the remaining territories, while their enemies would be continously revived and demolished. Latin Coloterra would be in such a condition for the next five centuries.

In the 1400's, during the Renaissance, the Kingdom of Aurelues merged with the Principality of Arixvennza in the Kingdom of Coloterra to establish better relations with their people and provide a greater army against their enemies. This unification put Invernamil and Linzabal on higher alert, as Aurelues and Arixvenzza were their enemies at that time. In 1445, the Cartannan War broke out between Linzabal and Coloterra, and resulted in the annexation of Linzabal into Coloterran soil in 1447. The main enemy of the Kingdom of Invernamil was quickly becoming more powerful and was in a matter of time until Coloterra invaded their southern neighbors. A civil war began in Invernamil in 1450 between the monarchy, who were hostile to the Coloterrans, and the citizensefered peaceful relations with the north. The citizens defeated the monarchy, and established a republic, although it would only join the Kingdom of Coloterra one year later.

In 1678, the royal family, the Mirandas, were assasinated by Jaquen Biarritz, an unemployed peasant, while in Puerto Stephano. Much trouble came as one could agree on the true successor of the Miranda Dynasty. Finally a civil war was fought with three sides, each supporting a different noble to become king. The conflict concluded with Frederic Delamuraz as the heir to the crown, but at the expense of 10,000 lives lost.

During the middle of the 19th century, many residents of Coloterra were unhappy of the reign of Luciano V, whose lack of leadership allowed crime to escalate. This allowed many different political groups to rise, in search of power over the entire island. The Second Coloterran Civil War would kick off in 1868, between the republican and socialist movements. The war devastated the Aurelues region, which was the site of seven major battles. The anarchists also made use of the conflict, and constantly bombed and attacked Socialist and Republican camps, by using tactics of guerilla warfare. A naval front in Lenica Bay resulted in 16 naval units being sunk on both sides. The war would end in 1871, at Nuova Vilaplacencia, as the Socialists surrendered to the Republicans. Luciano V was exiled to Isla Leona, a mountinous island off the shore of the Acronicola Peninsula. In all, 426,892 Coloterrans would die in the deadliest conflict in the island's history.

National Bio: Northern Atlantis is, even nowadays, a inhospitable land. Ages ago it was even worse. Dark Forests, infested with swamps gave way to wind swept steppes. The Summer is short and hot with long, freezing winters. And yet numerous people settled in these lands, for the steppe is fertile and the forests give protection from enemies. The most important of these peoples were the Lehites (Lachy). The tenth century trader/spy Ibraham ibn Yakub left written reports of the Lehites state covering most of what is now the southern Commonwealth. He seems to be impressed by both the cities he visited and the armies having wrote, “(…) one of these infidel is the match for ten of any other nation (…)”. This would sit well with documents strewn around the world from as far back as the sixth century about “Northmen” serving as mercenaries. If it is ever proven that these men were from the Commonwealth than it would place the beginnings of the state even further back.

Constant warfare unified the tribes inhabiting the area as they used the woods to repulse the heavily armed armies of the south and expanded north, into the steppe, fighting of numerous nomad hordes and the might of the Ruthenian Duchies. The unification was conducted under the rule of the Lehites.

In the year 966 the Duke, Mieszko, accepted Christianity of the Catholic rite as the state religion to further unify his realm, and deprive the young countries neighbours theological reason for war. What followed was nearly half a century of expansion before a massive peasant uprising, led by the priests of the old gods, bled the duke’s armies dry and made the state ripe for invasion. A horde of Kipchak from the steppe, the Principality of Ruthenia and all the might of the south entered the realm. Soon however those south realised that the Lehite realm provided a valuable service in keeping the nomad hordes at bay and gave military assistance to Kazimierz, the sole heir to the duchies throne and after numerous years of war known as the Lehite Crusades he succeeded it reclaiming most of his fathers lands. In 1076 he was crowned King of Lehistan. The date is also remarkable for the introduction of feudalism. The rest of the medieval ages passed on constant wars with the nomads and an occasional clash with its more civilised neighbours. In 1386 the Principality, under constant pressure from ever-stronger nomad hordes and increasing attempts from foreigners to gain influence, decided to seek aid from its southern neighbour. King Alexander married the Ruthenian princess Anatasia, now the realm was known as the Commonwealth of the crown of Lehistan and the Principality of Ruthenia. Though officially both partners were equal it was clear to all the Kingdom was the stronger of the two.

The following centuries passed with the domination for the Commonwealth in the north. It’s grain flowed to most ports and it’s military might, mostly represented nowadays by its “Winged” hussars, saw off all foreign threats and inner unrest.

The breaking of grain prices left the commonwealth deprived of its primary source of income and peasant revolts and national uprisings broke out, most importantly the “Cossak Mutiny” of 1684. After several defeats the Commonwealth managed to defeat the rebels but at the negotiations King Wladyslaw II agreed to turn the Commowealth of Two Nations into the Commonwealth of Three Nations. The year was 1689.

In 1746-1748, 1799-1813, 1830-1833, 1860-1864, 1888-1890 the Commonwealth was engaged in national uprisings. Despite this it still found time to engage in international politics such as the “Opium Wars” of 1851-1855 where a small force from the Commonwealth destroyed the plantations and established a garrison to ensure the trade of the drug died out.

Though national strife would still grip the state it was marginalized by Socialist terrorism and revolutions that peaked with the civil war of 1917-1922. Though the Commonwealth survived it was cut nearly in half, shrinking to borders much like those that it has today.

Since than the Commonwealth allowed other nation inside it a larger autonomy as part of the Commonwealth of Slavian Republics and has remained more or less unchanged to this day. After several decades of rebuilding its economy and stabilizing its inner politics it is a much more active player in the international field and on the frontline of, the so-called, “War on Terror”.

Without A Cure: The Origin and Eventual Uprising of Veilyonia

Veilyonia, then known as Veilya Avalonia, originated when a fleet of sailors, mainly in canoes, drifted off course and landed on the Northern Isle of Veilyonia around 2000 B.C.E. Until then, no one had inhabited this isle. The civilization grew steadily until 1000 B.C.E, when farming was discovered, and there was a boom in population. By 1 C.E, the entire Northern Isle had a population of around 1 million. It had developed into a monarchy, and had entered a Golden age similar to the Pax Romana. Zhou Peh, the glorified capital of Veilya Avalonia, contained huge gilded statues and brilliant sculptures.

In around 500 A.D, the country’s population had grown to 5 million, and looked to expand. Veilya Avalonia began to explore the modern-day Veilyonian mainland. There were many native groups of slightly less advanced civilizations. Veilya Avalonia traded with the mainlanders for many years, but eventually, tensions grew. Tensions eventually erupted into the Zhou-Karyan War. The war lasted for about 50 years, with Veilya Avalonia finally planting their flag in their capital of Karya Peh.

Around 1650, an industrial revolution began in Veilya Avalonia, and the nation began to develop products unseen until this point. The population boomed and trade was extensive with other countries. It was at this point that Veilyonian rule shifted from a monarch, to the Veilya Avalonian Senate. The country began to develop revolutionary warfare and began to turn its eye to the south, where the country of Astatix lay. Astatix was not as advanced as Veilyonia, but they possessed one of the most desirable cities in Atlantis, Dezhyrkiye. In 1950, Veilya Avalonia swiftly invaded Astatix. Using revolutionary planes and satellite targeting systems, the empire fell in just two weeks.

Up until 1970, Veilya Avalonia was peacefully developing into one of the worlds strongest economic powers. However, the nation entered a recession, plunging the poor into despair. Twenty percent of the nation was unemployed and the government refused to take action. On June 4, 1970, President Shya Entriya was assassinated by the leader of a rebel group known as “Veilyonia.” Within a week, the entire Northern Isle pledged loyalty to this group, along with the Northern tip. The Veilyonian Civil War had begun.

For five years, the forces battles to a stalemate until the turning point on August 25, 1975. The leader of the rebel group, Tytha Overov captured the leader of Veilya Avalonia and held him hostage. He claimed that he had 50 missiles aimed at their capital, Lourya, and if Veilyonia was not granted autonomy within 24 hours, he would destroy the city and kill their leader. Veilyonia gained independence later that night, but Overov still carried out the order to destroy the city, and threw the president into jail. Within a week, Veilyonia had completely conquered Veilya Avalonia, which had been reduced to a pile of smoking rubble. Since then, the nation has been restored, but a small community of Avalonians still exists in the South East tip of Veilyonia, swearing revenge.

National Bio: 500 years ago, an aging but respected sailor was trying to find ways to pass currents when he came across a new island. No one had known or seen the island before, so the sailor decided to record what it was like. Some of his entries are this:

"As we landed on the Island, we searched around for life. we soon found natives. We were unarmed and were about to flee, but the 'savages' saw us and ushered us over. They brought us to their village which was actually made with gold! Their resources and wealth would be unmatched if they were to gain contact."

When he tried to return home, he became extremely lost. Because of this, no one could find where the island was.

Until around 90 years ago, when two nations accidentally stumbled across the island and claim it for their own country. news of the others claim began a long series of wars, including 23 nuclear and one civil, that ravaged the island. The wars sparked debates throughout the world and in the WA. issues ranged from the condition of the inhabitants, who were considered obliterated after the 2nd nuclear war, to what should be done with the island.

After the 22nd nuclear war, the major warring powers signed a treaty. the treaty stated that the island was to be used for scientific research of the island for any country and that military, political, or economic establishment were not to be built. the island was monitored by satellite by the opposing powers and the WA.

9 years later, after the complete ignoring of the island, a military base appeared. the opposing powers were alerted and declared the 23rd, and soon to be final, war. Initial reconnaissance teams were killed prompting full invasion. On that day, 750,000 soldiers were killed without being shot at. It seemed as though the opposing nations had establish perfect defenses. three days later, the retreating ship transporting soldiers saw and heard the most important event in the history of the island. A strange flag flew above the island and a battle cry that could break the will of even the most hardened veteran was heard. On this day Inbrekanorio was formed.

Political outrage and shock rippled across the world. The outside powers were being hopelessly destroyed without seeing an opposing soldier. the war lasted three years, the last six months being the most brutal. It turns out, Inbrekanorio did not realize it was at war until two and a half years in, when a destroyed bomber crashed on a citizen.

after the powers surrendered, Inbrekanorio seized them and now occupies their territory. Its citizens were mutated by radiation, along with all the wildlife, making them more powerful and intelligent than their foes.

The national plant is the Francium fern, after its contribution as what appeared to be mines during the war. The Francium fern is a plant that feeds on Francium, an element that, with two grams, combined with water, yes water, could destroy a small car.

History

The modern day Travancore-Cochin was formed by the amalgamation of two princely states, Travancore and Cochin, in a unification movement known as the Aikya Malayalam (or United Malayalam) movement. The Travancore region was under the control of the Cholas and the Pandyas early in its history. Cochin, on the other hand was being ruled by the powerful and mighty Cheraman Perumal of the Chera dynasty. After converting to Islam, he took the help of Arab nations and captured Malabar, leading to the rapid spread of Islam there. After the death of Cheraman, the new King of Cochin was Kulashekhara Perumal who consolidated the empire and turned it into a hotbed of culture. However, Kulasekhara was reluctant to convert to Islam and turned Cochin into a secular state.

The kingdom of Travancore was truly established in the eleventh century AD, when the power of Pandyas had declined. Even though Travancore had a king, much of the real power lay with the feudal lords called the Pillas. During this time, Cochin was a strong kingdom despite being a shadow of its former glorious past. Several altercations developed between Cochin and the Zamorinite Principality of Malabar during this period and Cochin finally re-invaded Malabar, turning it once again into one of its territories.

It was during the Eighteenth century AD, in the time of the legendary Marthanda Varma (not to be confused with the modern politician of the same name), that modern Travancore was born. He shifted the capital from Padmanabhapuram in the south to Thiruvananthapuram since it was a port city and therefore it would be easier for the kingdom to conduct its business more efficiently. He established the supremacy of the king by capturing and putting to death the treacherous feudal lords. Then he embarked on a series of conquests that turned the little known principality into the empire that it is today. He even defeated an invading nation from Catlandatopia in a historic and decisive naval battle at Kulachal. Hence, he is known as the maker of modern Travancore.

One of his conquests were right into the heart of the kingdom of Cochin which was by now fledgling. The king of Cochin, after acceding several of his southern provinces to Travancore, signed a peace treaty with them. According to the treaty, Cochin could keep all of Malabar, and the regions closest to its capital. However, it did not take long for Cochin to disintegrate after that, and the Kingdom of Cochin just encompassed the area of the present Cochin district of the Ernakulam state alone, while the Zamorin made a revolutionary comeback in Malabar.

Cultural development of Travancore was also happening alongside. Swathi Thirunal Rama Varma, better known as simply Swathi Thirunal was exceptional in this regard. He setup Travancore's first University, Observatory and Museums of Natural and Cultural History in Thiruvananthapuram. He was also a songwriter and a master composer of the Carnatic Classical music style.

The last king of Travancore was Chithira Thirunal Balarama Varma. He ascended the throne on 2 May 1978. His nephew Uthradom Thirunal Marthanda Varma was born on the same date. He was educated in the UK. As a result, he had been giving strong signals that after ascending the throne, he would turn the country into a federal democratic republic. (Travancore followed a matrilineal hierarchy in which a king's nephew inherited his title after his death) On ascending the throne on 1 March 2003, Marthanda Varma immediately adopted a new constitution, authored by an executive committee of prominent public members, ex-servicemen and retired judges of the Supreme Court. According to the new constitution, Travancore was to become a Westminster Style democratic republic. To effect the changes he abolished monarchy, relinquished his title "Uthradom Thirunal" and came to be know simply as Marthanda Varma. He then ran for the post of MP from Thiruvananthapuram in the country's first ever elections, and won by a landslide with 95.067% of the votes polled. His party, the Travancore National Alliance (TNA) also won the largest number of seats in the Niyama Sabha, the lower house of Parliament, automatically making him the first ever Prime Minister of Travancore. Thus was born the Republic of Travancore.

This transition in Travancore to a democratic nation also set off similar passions in neighbouring Cochin as well as Malabar. Unable to cope with the rising discontent of the people, the King of Cochin abdicated his throne. As the country was thrown into political turmoil, the forces of Malabar invaded the country. With no other choice left, the king rescinded his abdication and, re-assuming his duties as King, proposed to unite Cochin with Travancore in the hope that Travancore's larger, more powerful and better-equipped armed forces would protect Cochin and her citizens. Travancore's Ministerial Cabinet promptly accepted the accession of Cochin. As Cochin's troops tried their best to fend off the Malabarean offensive, the supporting Travancorean troops arrived and drove back the Zamorin's forces, reclaiming all of the land intially lost to Malabar. The accession of Cochin to the Travancorean Republic was finalised on 3 August 2007 and the country officially changed its name to the Republic of Travancore-Cochin.

National Bio:

Czacilika was a nation of African (primarily Liberian, Batswana, and Sudanese) and Central European (Croatian, Bosnian, and Kosovar) refugees which gathered on the southern coast of the Mediterranean, near Tunis, Tunisia, and formed a small colony. They scraped out enough to survive by fishing, forming farming communes, and through various illegal activities including organized theft, smuggling, and narcotics trade. Some were more fortunate than others by various means, and gathered those they could on boats, sold commune estates and the marijuana they grew for more boats, transferred the greenhouses to barges and gathered more people. The more violent and illegally occupied of the new mass migration took what they could, including the "growboats" and most of the money, and split off, leaving the rest to fend for themselves.

Eventually, they found their way to Wysteria, and made it their home. The ships used to make the journey were collectively named The Fleetwalk, and declared sovereign territory of the new commonwealth. Along the way, they had picked up better ships, including dirigibles, and added alien, nymphomorphic spider-harpies to their ranks. Called Vazun, the origin of these massive arachnid mimics has been lost or erased from history. They enjoy equal status as citizens. For a time, this nation prospered, formed many allies, participated in unions and treaties, and gained respect around Wysteria for maverick courage and a unique ethicality. Then, a weaponized plague, a corporate coup, and a mass-cleansing and scorching of the earth left this nation a barely habitable, smoldering, bloodstained rock in the middle of Hell on Earth. That nation was Czacilika. Mythos has it that the first Czacilika had a second, older name, made from the origins of the peoples which populated it, and that the spirit of the fallen Czacilikans visited the refugees as they searched for their new home, and took a better part of the old fleet to another world to refound what they had and would become, the true Czacilika.

In this brief period of prosperity, The Plutocratic Estates of Tunisian New Lebanon was founded as "a new Carthage" by the economic and political entity The Spindral Consortium, which quickly established a corporate regime. The same forces that destroyed Czacilika, and more, hit Tunisian New Lebanon, but were repelled by a guerilla revolution and interdiction of the multinational confederacy of which the state was a part. The motto in that time became "Freedom or Death", derived, literally, from the policy of the guerillas on the war against the Spindral Consortium. It has been reborn as The Free Cities of Tunisian New Lebanon, and, after annexing the colonies of the last remaining Wysterian ex-patriots of the nations of The Confederacy of Polarverta, prospers to this day.

Czacilikan reformationists, influenced by the roman, druidic, and helenistic influences of the Confederacy, set out once more to found New Czacilika.

So far the nation, led by the hero Renie Kadloza, has no history. That will take place in Yggdrasil.

Czacilikans and Tunicce (the people of The Free Cities, literally "Tunisian" in the Czacilik language) are mariners first, and anything else second. The only exception to this would be the Vazun, who by nature are businessmen first, and second, and third, and maybe something else fourth if they have time for a hobby. Because of their history, Czacilikans are used to living at sea for masochistic binges of time, sometimes as long as two years or more. For the same reason, Czacilikans are extremely weary of settling down for any length of time. The cultural prerogative is to create a centralized, systematically organized, socially liberated society of educated nomadic traders.

The current political system draws on the Tunicce model, which can best be described of a loose confederacy of alliances of independent city-states. There is no head of state. Each city conspires to form its own government, and alliances are formed internally between local governments. Externally, these alliances participate in a confederacy which governs foreign economic and diplomatic policy, military training and operations, coastal patrol and law enforcement, and the more universal aspects of the judicial system and national infrastructure. The closest thing to a national legislature is the tricameral senate, where each city, regional alliance, and party gets one vote, as well as one veto. Vetoes are nightmares to override, so it falls to the city-states to make the laws governing their own territory, which is exactly how it is meant to be.

Full Name: The Ulthar Party Animal of Ambassador Ratatoskr

Short Name: Oskr

National Motto: “Ulthar Ambassador to Yggdrasil”

Population: 836 million

Official Date of Establishment: April 1, 2009

Government Type: Left-Leaning College State

Head of State: A Mean Squirrel We Call Moose

Head of Government: Oskr

Capital City: I live in a tree.

Largest Cities: Acornville, North Cranberry Bog

Language(s): squirrel, English, Swedish, wombat

National Tree/Flower: Tree = Yggdrasil, Flower = daisy

National Animal: squirrel

National Bio: I was born in Ulthar and raised by a cat known as Cannibal Hog Monkeys. He is neither a cannibal, a hog, or a monkey, but I was a baby squirrel being raised by a cat that hangs out with a vampire in a tree nest outside the City of Ulthar, so none of that seems weird to me. Or the fact that Cannibal Hog Monkeys speaks that annoying LOLcat kitteh gibberish on the Ulthar RMB but is otherwise in all other circumstances well spoken. Which, if you think about it, might explain a lot.

:blink:

My small but frisky nation has grown in population with little heavy industry. The citizens of Ratatoskr are hard workers, however, and tend to focus primarily on the arts and computers. We are a popular tourist destination due to our spectacular scenery, beaches, and hiking trails. Most popular pursuits of the locals are mountain biking and pub crawling, preferably in that order. I did it the other way around once and can report it's inadvisable.

:beerchug:

I entered into the Ulthar Diplomatic Corps and was trained in party etiquette, how to tap a keg of Aquavit, and studied the successes of great nations including Yggdrasil's GRO. I was thrilled to be picked by Ulthar's Mayor to move to Yggdrasil as an Ambassador.

:yggsmiley:

I maintain an Embassy and ODesignInc, an image shop, but you're probably more likely to catch me with a TG or PM because I am inexorably and inexplicably drawn to spam up the Games part of the Yggdrasil forum, where I have enjoyed the company of many clever nations who, in the spirit of the region in which I was born, do not take themselves too seriously and enjoy excellent humor.

National Bio:

The Republic of Britannic Union States was set in motion on New years day, the 1st of January 2007 with a mandate from Sir Winston Hume of the House of Lords, to the British government. This mandate in no uncertain terms the problems that he believed had driven the United Kingdom to betray it's identity, it's history, it's integrity and it's independance:

- The breakdown of the Union through devolution

- The withdrawl of the right to free speech

- Mass taxation

- The withdrawl of personal freedoms in the name of public safety

- The devolution of power to Brussels

- Mass imigration and the delusional nature of the Multi-Cultural ideal

- The relience of the UK on foreign powers, eg: The United States

- The absence of the British people's right to choose their leader from term to term

- The surrendering of jobs to foreign workers in light of unemployment

- The flexible nature of the current constitution

- The rises in crime, and anti-social behaviour

Sir Winston set out in his mandate that unless plans were set in motion to resolve such issues he and his supporting party would be forced to act decisively. Such threats were ignored by the Labour government, and so plans were set in motion.

On the 20th of January 2007, Sir Winston and a crowd of more than 15,000 people gathered in Trafalgar Square in defiance of the British government. In protest, each member of the crowd let light to their British passport, a symbol of turning their backs on their homelands and their government. Across the country tens of thousands of people ceased compliance with the government, failing to pay taxes, to work and resisting government action to quell the unrest.

In the purges of Febuary 2007, many public supporters of Sir Winston as well as Sir Winston himself were inprisoned under anti-terrorism laws. Whilst incarcerated, Sir Winston published his first work that was to become the declaration of independence for the R.B.U.S. The 43 page document, summised in one page set out plans to establish a new homeland for all who wished, free from the influence of the United Kingdom. The most famous phrase that closed the document, went on to be the unofficial motto of the nation, appearing on buildings, bank notes and stamps:

"The people have been free, and free they shall be again"

On Sir Winston's release in mid-march, he set out his plans proper, declaring a homeland with the aid of the Yggdrasil Union. Ships were laid on to relocate thousands of families from their existing homes to the new land, and by late April, the new land had established four new states, each of which with their own preliminary government.

On the 18th of May, a delegation from each of the four states; County Montgomery, Windsor, Trafalgar and London County met on the steps of the mid-construction parliament, in front of a 4,000 strong crowd to declare their backing of Sir Winston Hume as the first Prime Minister of the Britannic Union States. It was on this day that the declaration of independance was enshrined, and with it the new "Instrument of Government" was established, declaring the powers of the government, the rights of the people and the workings of the new country. Below is a short summation of the major principles of each document:

The Nation:

1) The Nation shall be known as The Republic of Britannic Union States, or the R.B.U.S in colloquialisms.

2) The Nation shall belong to the people, for it is the people upon which the nation is reliant. Each will have their say in the governence of the nation through free and fair democratic elections by the people, for the people. Elections shall take place every 3 years, and all over the age of 16 shall be eligible to vote.

3) The people shall elect one individual to the power of Prime Minister, they shall have the power of legislature over all others, but shall be subject to the constitution, for the constitution is sovereign and to the vote of the house, for the house represents all. The people shall also elect two representatives from each of the 28 constituencies, and each shall sit in the house. The people shall only be elegible to vote in their constiuency. Voting is compulsory to all, as it maintains the democracy of a nation. Ammendments to the constitution must be passed by 2/3 of the house.

4) The PM may bring forward legislature as he wishes, and the house will vote upon it. The house may bring forward a collective number of 5 legislative proposals independent of the PM.

The People:

1) All men are equal in the eyes of the state, and no law shall apply to one, that does not apply to the other.

2) All men are entitled to their human rights as enshrined in the Britannic Union's bill. However, a person may revoke some of their human rights through wrongdoing.

3) The people shall be free to the greatest extent possible. Liberty for all shall reign to the extent that each man has the greatest ammount of liberty without infringing upon the liberty of others.
