Charter

Preamble

Be it known, that we knowing the prosperity of these cities, and the welfare of their inhabitants depends principally on navigation and trade, which in all former times by the said cities were carried on happily, and with a great blessing to all countries and kingdoms; and desiring that the aforesaid inhabitants should not only be preserved in their former navigation, traffic, and trade, but also that their trade may be increased as much as possible in special conformity to the treaties, alliances, leagues and covenants for traffic and navigation formerly made with other princes, republics and people, which we give them to understand must be in. all parts punctually kept and adhered to: And we find by experience, that without the common help, assistance, and interposition of a General Country, the people designed from hence for those parts cannot be profitably protected and maintained in their great risk from pirates, extortion and otherwise, which will happen in so very short a time. We have, therefore, and for several other important reasons and considerations as thereunto moving, with mature deliberation of counsel, and for highly necessary causes, found it good, that the navigation, trade, and commerce, in the parts of the City Empire world, should not henceforth be carried on any otherwise than by the common united strength of the merchants and inhabitants of these cities; and for that end there shall be erected one General Company, which we out of special regard to their common well-being, and to keep and preserve the inhabitants of those places in good trade and welfare, will maintain and strengthen with our Help, Favor and assistance as far as the present state and condition of this Country will admit. And whoever shall presume without the consent of this Company, to sail or to traffic in any of the Places within the aforesaid Limits granted to cities in this country, he shall forfeit the ships and the goods which shall be found for sale upon the aforesaid coasts and lands; the which being actually seized by the aforesaid Company, shall be by them kept for their own Benefit and Behoof.

If secretaries are not appointed, Opperhoofden are expected to embody and execute these positions themselves

Amendment III: Autocratic Democracy

Without the Governor General’s vote in favor of a motion (or a Director General acting in the Governor General’s place when applicable), a motion will fail.
