Any member of ICE who should go against the Charter either through excessive flaming/trolling and/or warfare not approved by the Imperial General will be classified as a rogue until acceptable reparations and/or statement of apology are provided and agreed upon by all parties involved.

Elites – Elites are experienced/active/deserving members of the Imperial Coalition of the Elite. An ICE member can be promoted to a Elite through hard work and dedication. This rank is not passed out lightly. Members are "Elited" by the Council of ICE.

Section VI – War & Diplomacy

Section VIa - Declaration of War

ICE is a peace-minded country and shall not seek aggressive warfare. Any disagreements between ICE and other Countries is encouraged to be resolved diplomatically using any and all available options. Acts of war will only be in response to violence or the facilitation of violence against individual members, ICE, or her allies.

In the event of an unprovoked act of aggression upon ICE, the Imperial Chancellor and/or the Minister of Defense may conduct emergency military actions while waiting for the Council of ICE approval. Simultaneously, the Imperial Chancellor and/or Minister of Defense shall move for a declaration of war by presenting all necessary reasoning and recorded events to the Council of Ice. If the Council of ICE approves the declaration of war, it will then mobilize the Coalition’s military under the guidance of the Imperial General. If the declaration of war does not receive the required support at either level, the Minister of Defense will cease all emergency military actions immediately.

In the event of an unprovoked act of aggression upon the allies of ICE, the Imperial Chancellor and/or Minister of Defense may conduct emergency military actions in upholding Mutual Defense Treaties. In the event of an Optional Defense Treaty, the Imperial General and/or the Minister of Defense must present all arguments for military action await the ruling from the Council of ICE.

Section VIb - Infra-raiding

Attacks or espionage on unaligned cities is allowed by ICE members as long as a few conditions are met: The unaligned must not be a member or an applicant to any country larger than 5 members. The unaligned must have over 1,000 infra. ICE members must stop any attacks at the request of the defender. Failure to comply to these conditions may result in punishment in and up to removal from ICE.

Section VI – Impeachments

In order for any government official to be impeached a ¾ vote must be reached. Afterwards the members of ICE will elect a new official to take their place.

Section VIII – Membership Expulsion and Suspension

The Imperial Chancellor may immediately expel any National Assembly member if the said member launches a nuclear weapon without authorization except if the said launches are in retaliation to nuclear attacks on alliance members, in which case the target is limited to the nation which first used nuclear weapons against alliance members. The Imperial Chancellor must notify the Council of ICE if the Chancellor expels anyone under this provision.

The Council of ICE will vote on the legitimacy of the cause for expulsion. A two-thirds (2/3) majority of the Council is required to rescind the expulsion order, in which case the Imperial Chancellor may still bring the member to trial before the Council of ICE.

Any city having been immediately expelled without trial may petition the Minister of State, in person or through an appointed representative, to review the events justifying the expulsion of the said member. A two-thirds (2/3) majority of the Council of ICE is required to rescind the expulsion order, in which case the Chancellor may still bring the member to trial before the Council

The Council of ICE may suspend the membership and limit the access of any ICE National Assembly member if substantial evidence of treason is presented against that member.

Section IX - World Affairs

We believe in the sovereignty of all alliances and will not impede on that. All ICE members are free to communicate with the rest of the world, but do so in an unofficial manner unless otherwise stated by the Chancellor or Council. Embassies will be provided to any Country who so desires one. Trade amongst Countries is encouraged to help promote good will. Should a country have any questions or complaints about ICE, or it's members, we would encourage them to contact us via in game, our forums, or IRC.

Section X – Amendments

ICE reserves the right to modify this charter in any form without notification. Should changes direct or indirectly affect any member of the world community, we will try to provide proper notification to the best of our abilities. Any changes to this charter require a 2/3rds vote from the Council.

Signed,

The ICE National Assembly
