Philadelphi Canal Route

Route of the Philadelphi Canal

The Second Compact of Philadelphi is a series of treaties that regulate the Philadelphi Canal and its usage. While actually comprised of a number of treaties, the common theme of the Compact is the Basic Tenet rules as well as the relationship between Aegypt and another nation that is applying for access to the Philadelphi Canal.

While the Compact of Philadelphi, which was in effect from 1460s to the 1620s, addressed a number of the same issues as addressed in the Second Compact, this series of negotiations were desired by King Ausfrianos after Egypt and Alexandria-Aiguptia were united in 1621.

The Second Compact proved to be very unpopular with other European and Middle Eastern powers, who then conspired to end what they saw as an unfair agreement and a clear violation of the trust brought on by the First Compact. A coalition of nations led by the Roman Empire invaded Egypt, ending the Second Compact as well as independent Egyptian rule. 

Basic Tenets

  1. Agreement Clause: All nations must have a specific agreement with the current government of Aegypt in order to have access to the Philadelphi Canal.
    • Terms negotiated through the First Compact of Philadelphi are hereby null and void; all future access must be based upon the Second Compact of Philadelphi.
  2. Protection of Shipments Clause: Protection shall be provided by Aegypt for all cargo passing through the Philadelphi Canal.
  3. Oceanic Territories Clause: All nations who enter into the Second Compact of Philadelphi recognize the oceanic claims shown in the following map.
    • All nations which tresspass upon these oceanic claims (which will exclude nations that currently have a negotiated agreement with Aegypt) will have their oceanic vessels confiscated and the property expropriated to Aegypt.
  4. Tariff and Governance Clause: Aegpyt will govern the commerce of all regions inside of or bordering the oceanic claims of Aegypt. Merchants will pay a tariff of variable amount (currently of 4% to 7%) on top of the value of goods being transported.
  5. Protection of Aegypt Clause: All nations who enter into Compact with Aegypt to govern the use of the Philadelphi Canal agree to protect the Kingdom of Aegypt from attack by an outside party. This protection shall be dependent upon the current state of the war and the state of both parties, and shall come as either declaration of war or sending military aid.
    • In order to ensure that each nation shall provide military aid, each nation shall store 50,000 Coptic Cmin (each worth 1 oz. of gold) in gold (or, the equivalent of 60,000,000 2014 USD), which shall be used for payment of mercenaries should a nation refuse to send military aid.
  6. Relations Clause: In order to maintain the ability to use the canal, the applying nation must maintain good and reputable relations with Aegypt.
  7. Forewarning Clause: Should the Aegyptians consider revoking a nation's access to the canal, the applying nation shall be warned two years in advance. This Clause is not valid in times of war or where immediate threats are faced by Aegypt.
  8. Protection of Interests Clause: In the event of a war being waged by Aegypt, be it offensive or defensive, no nation may come to the aid of an allied state to fight Aegypt.
  9. Mutual Navigation Clause: All other applying signatories shall recognize the other applying signatories and their ability to navigate through the canal.
    • Absolutely no warfare is to take place in the Philadelphi Canal or the surrounding region that is accepted as part of the oceanic claims of Aegypt.
  10. Sovereignty and Hegemony Clause: All signatories shall recognize Aegyptian sovereignty and hegemony over all lands claimed by Aegypt as well as agree not to interfere in Aegyptian territorial ambitions in North and East Africa and the Near East. Any perceived violation shall result in the possible confiscation of the 50,000 Coptic Cmin gold deposit and demands to refill the deposit or be barred from entering the Canal.
  11. Peace Clause: No nation is to use the Philadelphi Canal for any purpose other than trade without the express written consent of the monarch of Aegypt. This is especially important for any military operations that attempt to use the Philadelphi Canal for transportation. Not only will the offending ships be stopped, the offending nation shall have its section of this compact nullified and made void, with the deposit of 50,000 Coptic Cmin gold to be seized by the government of Aegypt.
  12. Beneficial Trade Clause: No nation with access to the Philadelphi Canal shall engage in trade with any nation, other than a vassal or a duly-recorded protectorate, that is also engaging in trade with Aegypt in a similar or the same good or service and does not have access through the Philadeplhi Canal.

Discussion

I added another term just so it doesn't look empty and since Urdustan is facing minor revolts I want to ensure Goa's safety as without it the canal becomes more or less useless to me. SkyGreen24(Party,quotes) 10:42, September 14, 2014 (UTC)
