The Charter, officially The Royal Charter for Economic Cooperation in Trans-Miraria, is an economic and political union of 5 states in western Miraria. The mission statement of the Charter is to maintain free trade, freedom of movement, preserve cultural institutions, and promote peace in the region.

History

Founding

The Charter was signed February 8, 1801 as an agreement between the Alotol Confederation and the Kingdom of Mai Thi. Its original aim was to cement Alotol-Maithic trade relations and offer mutual support to balance out regional spheres of influence. The Charter existed in this form until 1827 when the Kovat Kingdom of Asota joined the agreement. Asota, Liosol, and Mai Thi revised the original Royal Charter, making the aims of the agreement economic growth, social progress, regional peace, mutual assistance, and preservation of cultures in the region. This new Charter prompted the countries of ... to join.

Pangyeoun War

Post-war policies

Following the Great Ekuosian War, members of the Charter created a mutual defence agreement, in case another major conflict occurred in the region. This agreement was put to the test during the Asotan Civil War.

During the 60's, the city Agreement was enacted, allowing freedom of movement between Asota, Huy En, Liosol, Mai Thi, and Lenezan. This was later expanded to include non-member countries in Soltenna and Vaniua.

Structure

Historically, the Charter has no formal legislature or governing body. Instead, members of the members' governments work in different agencies and meet multiple times throughout the year in Granas. While there is no designated leader of the Charter, the Secretary of CPS is typically considered the de jure head of the organization.

CPS

Established in 1832 as the first major agency of the Charter, the Cultural Preservation Society (CPS) strives to provide an outlet for historically important cultural values and protect national sites, treasures, and individuals from being destroyed by outside influence.

EPAC

The Economic Policy Association of the Charter (EPAC) played a major role in trade between the countries in the Charter during the imperial era. It has in recent years been superseded by the Soltennan Council, although many of the EPAC's economic initiatives remain in place for some of the Charter members.

IBA

The International Body of Advocates (IBA) is the Charter's progressive agency, working on behalf of LGBTQ+ individuals, immigrants, and other species to secure their rights in both Charter states and surrounding countries. The IBA has drawn much ire from the international community, especially from countries that are opposed to equal rights for people in the LGBTQ+ community.
