{C While the CTO is a peaceful organization, we ARE prepared to support a military solution should a nation prove to be a volatile threat to the world trade and unwilling to negotiate the ceasing of their actions which have alarmed us so.

CTO Internal OrganizationEdit

{C While the members of the CTO would prefer to ensure that the voice of all members will play a crucial role in our actions, we do realize that we can not ensure an odd number of votes at all times, which leaves us with the conclusion that we must be prepared for the event at which we are unable to come to a decision.



While all members have the right to vote and comment on initiatives, in the event of our inability to come to a decision, the Trade Council will step in. The members of the Trade Council will vote again, taking into account the arguments and thoughts of their fellow members, and their votes will be used to come to a decision.



The Trade Council will consist of an odd number of members at ALL times. Should a Trade Council member step down or be removed, a replacement will be found immediately. Should one not be found before the Trade Council is reqiured to vote, the Trade Council Chairman will not vote on the initiative but, rather, will remain there to referee the debate and count the votes. The Chairman position will rarely become open, so there is no current policies on how to elect a new one, but it is likely that we will primarily simply take a poll on whom the members wish to have in the Trade Council, determine which of the more popular candidates are most eligible and move on from there.



To join the Trade Council, the members of the CTO will vote on your reqeust and the Trade Council will discuss your reqeust to determine whether you are an appropriate addition to the Trade Council. As well, the Trade Council will need to see evidence of your country holding a rank C or higher Trade route. The goal is to limit the Trade Council to three (3) members.



The internal workings of the CTO are always up for debate, so this section may face change at any point in time. For example, when the CTO was formed we had no actual limit on members, but now we will only allow in a maximum of eleven (11) members. All members must also now have at least one grade C or higher trade route and we now vote on whether to let in a member or not.



CTO Rules/StandardsEdit

The CTO reqiures that all members meet and follow these rules and standards. Those who do not may face reprecutions.


  1. Remain Civil: We encourage all members to please be polite and refrain from insulting or attacking fellow members. We are all friends here, so there is no need to be hostile.
  2. Meet ALL Initiative Requirements: Unless you are given a pardon by the Trade Council, we ask that all members meet ALL requirements for ALL initiatives passed. Remember that all members have the right to vote on something, so if you are unable or unwillng to meet those reqiurements, it is truely only your own fault if things do not go as you desire. We understand that you may be out-voted or that members may not be present during a vote, so we WILL allow for members to reqeust pardons on standards or allow them to form deals to slowly work their way towards those goals.
  3. We Are All Together: Members are asked not to represent the CTO solely by themselves. We are all in this together and thus we vote, act, and decide things together. Any member who goes against the will of the rest of the CTO while still representing the CTO WILL face punishment. An example might be placing another country under Embargo under the name of the CTO, when in fact the CTO never voted to or never agreed to place an embargo on that country. (You're allowed to embargo countries, just not under the name of the CTO.)
  4. Behave Appropriatly: We understand that things may not always go your way and that you may get upset at times, but we ask that you PLEASE try to behave appropriatly and as maturely as possible at all times. Anyone who complains, spams, or so on may face punishment from the rest of the CTO, and we honestly do not want to see that happen.
  5. Betrayal is Unacceptable: Should a member declare war on another nation (whether they are a member or not) the CTO WILL discuss distancing themselves from that member, unless the CTO has declared an initiative to support the war. The CTO is primarially peaceful, so it is unlikely we will take any violent solutions into consideration unless under EXTREME circumstances.
  6. Representatation is a Must: All members are asked to have ONE representative in the CTO group . Failure to do so may lead to controversy. If a member supplies more than one, only one will be allowed to vote at a time. If on representative votes in a manner NOT desired by the rest of that nation, they are asked to quickly discuss amongst themselves their views and determine how they shall vote in a TIMELY manner. Votes tend to end rather quickly, generally without every member having voted simply to ensure we are always on the move towards advancement.


Have another rule or standard you want up here? Feel free to discuss it on the CTO wall, if you're a member, or send Texar or the chairman a message and we will all be sure to take things into consideration! ^_^



Embargo'sEdit

Occasionally it shall become necessary that we as a united community should take action to protect our trade interests. To do such, we generally begin with negotiations, should that fail we embargo the hostile faction, and it MAY eventually come to a military solution.

  • We have no embargo's at this time.
