VDS Alliance

Verein der Deutsche Staaten: A New Alliance

Recommended Posts

The Verein der Deutsche Staaten (Club of German States) is searching for new members, no matter how small or large, poor or rich, developed or undeveloped. We offer players of P&W a new kind of alliance: an alliance which serves them, which they can be a part off. We only demand that there are no Nazi references in your nation; this is a new united Deutschland.

We are headquartered in Das Volksrepublik Freiland, in centralEurope, which was previously known as Köln (Cologne), Germany. We are searching for members all over the world. You do not have to be Germanic to apply; however, we do seek to achieve peace with other Germanic nations and alliances who are non-members of the VDS. We were created Today, Friday, March 30th,  and already have three active nation-members. 

We are offering the first 25 members a $100,000 welcome bonus upon admittance into the alliance; they must join the Discord channel in order to receive it. The offer is valid until April 5th, 2018, or until the alliance reaches 25 members, whichever comes first. 

Officers

Our structure of officers is ensures each region is receiving equal representation, and ensures a proper system of checks-and-balances is in place. Officer positions are as follows:

Executive Officers:
Kanzler: Jake Lawless, Volksrepublik Deutschland - term-length: Life
Vertreter (Second-in-command): Vacant - term-length: one month
The Kanzler and Vertreter share equal power. They are able to make executive decisions and have access to alliance bank funds. They can make treaties. The Vertreter servers a month-long term. Each month period, the member-nation strongest in point value will fill the role as Vertreter. There are no term-limits, and power can roll-over into consequent months.

Vorstandsmitgleider Stellungen (Officer Positions):

Global Positions:
Officer of War (OW): Responsible for negotiating treaties, encouraging military development, coordinating military support, and proposing military grants
Officer of Finance (OF): Responsible for negotiating market-share treaties, encouraging commerce development, proposing a tax plan each month, and proposing need-based grants
Officer of National Development (OD): Responsible for coordinating welfare plans and grants, encourages mining and manufacturing, and proposes pollution-control grants
The global officers act as middle-men between Executives and Regional Representatives. Terms are for one-month. Each month, the nation with the strongest military, highest GDP, and most infrastructure will be appointed as the OW, OF, and OD, respectively.

The first appointment of Vertreter and Global Officers will take place upon the 10th member-nation's acceptance into the alliance.

Representative Positions:
Each region will have a representative appointed for every 5th member within the region. Regions are Europe, North America, South America, Asia, Africa, and Oceania. The role of the representative will be to relay messages from their region to higher officers. They will also have voting power to proposed policy changes. Terms are for-life; the only way to lose office is to either step down willingly, be kicked from the alliance, or be promoted to a higher position. The representative will be the nation with the highest point value in the region upon every-5th members acceptance into the alliance.

The executive positions will be the only nations who can access and distribute alliance bank funds. Officers will be able to view bank transactions to ensure the executives are not abusing their powers.

Economic and Development Goals, Tax Structure

Our primary goal is member-development. We offer our members the recourses which nations need to progress. One way we achieve this is through a progressive tax code tied with a weekly even distribution of a portion of profit. The alliance offers 3 normal tax brackets, as well as a reduced officer tax rate and a bare-bones tax rate available to rebuilding nations following a damaging war. The codes are as follows:
Default (Tier One): Nations with 1-5 cities: 15% tax on income, 10% tax on resources
Tier Two: Nations with 6-10 cities: 22% tax on income, 14% tax on resources
Tier Three: Nations with 10+ cities: 30% tax on income, 20% tax on recourses
Officer Tax Rate: As a token of gratitude for the hard work our officers are expected to do, they will be subject to a 10% tax on income, 8% tax on resources
Rebuilding Rate: Upon approval of either the Kanzler or Vertreter, nations ravaged by war are eligible for a one-week period of 3% tax on both income and recourses per-month.

Each week, 50% of alliance's weekly profit will be evenly distributed to member nations. If monthly profits exceed the previous month's, double-bonuses will be distributed on the 1st of the month. Weekly profit distribution is in effect immediately, monthly bonuses will begin on May 1st, 2018.

Die Allianz Gesetze: The Alliance Laws

The alliance values the rule of law; no nation shall be subject any differently to laws, including executives and officers.

Capital Offenses: Breaking these laws will result in immediate expulsion and military aggression
1) No member shall wage war on any other member.
2) No member shall commit fraud with alliance-bank funds, including grants, loans, tax dodging, and out-right theft.
3) No member shall be acting as a spy for any other alliance.

Inactivity:
1) Any nation who is inactive for a 1 week period will cease to receive tax redistributions.
2) Any nation who is inactive for 2 weeks will cease to receive military support from other members.
3) No nation shall ever be expelled for inactivity.

Other Laws: 
1) Breaking of a treaty is subject to official review. Should you be found guilty of wrong doing, punishments get progressively heavier. First instance: Tax distributions cut for two weeks. Second instance: 100% tax rate for one week, along with no distribution. Third instance: Expulsion from alliance.
2) Military Support Pledge: Members of similar war-tiers are expects to provide support for each other upon request. Should it become a trend that one nation refuses to help, it will be reviewed by officers. Punishment will vary, but is limited to tax distribution bars, not to exceed one month. 

Freedom Clause:
Member-nations are free to develop their nations and use their distributions as they see fit. Grants which carry use-restrictions do not apply, and must be used as intended. Any policy change will be proposed to member-nations three days prior to officers voting on them, in order to give ample time to relay questions/concerns with regional officers. 

Member-Welfare

The alliance is burdened with keeping its members afloat during times of national turmoil. During radiation-famines, the alliance will do its best to offer affordable food at a reduced rate. Weak and new nations will be eligible for grants to aid speedy development. Grants will be generously offered in times of economic prosperity. Members are also expected to recruit new members. Referral for new-members which remain active for 3 consecutive days following admittance will result in a $250,000 referral bonus. A weekly announcement of the state of the alliance will be released every Friday, which will recap the previous week as well as set-fourth any goals for the following week.
