The Treaty of Moscow was a treaty that united the nations of Russia into the Tsardom of Russia.

Articles

Section 1: Basic Principles of Foundation

Article 1 : Basic Understandings of Formation

The nations of Russia shall unify into the Tsardom of Russia, with the Grand Duke of Russia being declared Tsar, and his personal possessions being treated as royal territory. The Tsardom of Russia will be a Federated State, with The signing nations becoming each members of this federated union, Subjects of the Russian Tsar, and Sovereign in their Territory.

A legislative assembly, the Zemskiy Sobor, will be established, to represent the interests of the States of Russia, working as advisors to the Russian Tsar.

The States signing this agreement are bound to it as long so it exists, and will not attempt to separate themselves within the Union of Russia, and in doing so shall face the just wrath of the Russian people.

This treaty is considered perpetual, and any changes to this treaty will require both a majority of parties, and, of course, a majority of the sovereign states to agree to the change, and a resigning and ratification of the new, appended treaty for it to come into force. 

Article 2: Standardization of Rus'

In order to help keep a cohesive state functional, to facilitate trade and commerce, the nations undersigned will also submit their national weights and measures to the standardization that Pskov had Established since 1434. Each State shall keep a standard, but the true prototypes shall remain in Pskov, and they will be established as the guardians of the weights and measures. However, any further changes to them must be made in accordance to the Treaty of Moscow, and from now on, the Pskovian Law on weights and measures of 1434 shall be established as an integral part of the treaty, and can no longer be changed unilaterally, as it is no longer a law of Pskov, but that of Russia itself. In addition, the nations joining the Union of Russia shall also abandon any currencies they have held previously, and the  zolotnik, its sub-denominations, and other intricacies, shall be established as the only official currency within the Rus' Nation, and the banks and private citizens shall be charged with exchanging it at their own expense. All taxes collected in gold and silver shall be collected as zolotniks and rubles, without exception.

Section 2: The Great Ryad of Rus'

This Section outlines the Rights, Privileges, Responsibilities, and Limits of the Tsar's powers over the Federation.

Article 1: The Tsar of Russia

Section 3: The Lesser Ryad of Rus'

This Section outlines the Division of Powers between the Federal (Tsar and Sobor) and Sovereign Bodies of legislature (be it Veche or Otherwise). i.e. defines the powers attributed to the Zemsky Sobor, the Sovereigns of Rus', and other legislative bodies that may exist throughout the Tsardom. 

Article 1: The Tsar's Federal Subjects

Apart from the Tsar's Domain, the Nation of Russia shall be divided into two separate categories of Federal Subjects, The Knyazhestvos (Principalities), nations nominally autonomous, and the Gospodstvos, Nations subordinate to another. Here is a list of all members of the Tsar's subjects:

Knyazhestvos

  • Novgorod
  • Pskov

Gospodstvos

  • Karelia
  • Tver
  • Rostov
  • Yaroslavl'
  • Volodoga

More ... to ... come ...

Article 2: The Zemsky Sobor

The Zemsky Sobor is the legislative house, in Moscow, comprised of representatives chosen by the states based partly on population, partly on influence.

Article 3: Military matters

Section 4: The Charter of Rights

This section outlines the Basic Rights that the Zemsky Sobor may not legislate against, lest it change the treaty, which would require ([limited]religious freedoms, the general prohibition of inherited slavery (very uncommon in Russia, unlike debt-induced indentured servitude), that sort of thing).

Article One: Freedom from Imprisonment

The state may not, under any circumstances, arbitrarily imprison any man, woman or child, without due cause, and the arrested may only be punished as required by the laws of the land, and any crime of violence committed against an accused will be treated as though it was committed to an innocent, as the only punishments can be administered through the laws, and any administered outside of it shall be considered a crime.

Article Two: Freedom from Property

No living human shall ever be considered the property of another in the Lands of Russia. Kholopstvo (debt servitude) may not be transferred from parent to child, nor may it be from sibling to sibling, or to any relative, or friend. Any contract signed to pay debts must only concern the ownerships and properties of the debtor, and the family may not be punished for the crimes of one of its members, only the offending person may receive justice.

Article Three: The Right of a Trial

Any man accused of a crime has the right to a fair trial before a judge, and may appoint a council better vested in the laws than he is to represent him. The accused has the right to question the witnesses of the Accuser, and has the right to know the identity of the accuser.

Article Four: The Right to Private Ownership of Property

Every citizen of any member state has the right to own private property, and this property cannot be seized arbitrarily or without due cause because of the wishes of a person, as this is equal to theft.

Article Five: Freedom to Worship

The people may not be killed, tortured or otherwise persecuted based solely on their religious beliefs while in Russia. However, the issue of a tax on religious minorities shall be left to the member states. (Don't get any ideas, this is mostly to protect visitors and traders to Russia from being imprisoned due to their religious beliefs, as imprisoning traders because they believe in a different god or different faction would result in ... less traders ... which trade nations like Novgorod and Pskov would not like ...)

Section 5: Procedure for Amendments

THis shall go about how changed to the treaty shall be made.

Article 1: Acknowledgement of Change

Due to times, we acknowledge circumstance can change, people want more military, states feel inadequate etc ... etc ... etc ... (better version to come)

Article 2: Amendments requiring Universal Consent

Changing the Lesser or Great Ryads essentially

Article 3: Amendments requiring limited Consent

Changes only affecting your nation or vassals, or only affecting limited areas, etc...

Article 4: Unilateral Amendments

Only affecting you, inconsequential changes, "Unilateral" as it can be changed by the Zemsky Sobor or a Nation at will.

Section 6: Amendments
