The Union is now accepting members!
Come and have your say in a radical new project that aims to unite all its members in the pursuit of a common goal and help them in their efforts to achieve great things.
If you want to know more, check out our organisation description, or join our Discord server.
What is the Union?
The Union is a shared, democratic initiative that aims to provide all its members with the means to achieve their goals, and to protect its members in their pursuits. It has a flat hierarchy that ensures that all its members have an equal say in deciding the organisation's common goal. The core principle of the Union is the common contribution: this is the idea that all members have the privilege of calling upon the Union's shared assets to achieve their goals, but in return, all members are required to provide some of their own assets for the shared stock. In this way, the Union's efforts aim to be as guided and as effective as the projects of any other government.
Why should I join the Union?
In the vastness of space, you never know when you'll need other people's help. Joining the Union is the perfect way to ensure that you never find yourself without the means to survive and thrive. The Union is indebted to protect all its members, as well, so you can go into any situation with the assurance that someone is there to help you should things not go your way.
In addition, due to the common contribution system of the Union, the more members it has, the more powerful it becomes. You will still only have to provide a small portion of your own assets for the Union, but as more and more members join, you will receive much more help and resources whenever you request a common contribution.
Membership of the Union is compatible with membership of most other organisations, so you can receive the benefits of the Union without having to lose out on the benefits of your current organisation. In fact, if your organisation joins the Union, you can use the common contribution system to help your organisation achieve its own goals.
How can I join the Union?
If all this sounds like something that appeals to you, you can apply for membership right on this page. If you have any questions, or would like to find out more about the Union, consider joining our Discord server.
When applying for membership, please disclose membership of any other organisations. This ensures that we are able to consider your needs in this regard.
I like the idea of the Union, but I'm too invested in my current organisation to join. Is there any way I can still benefit from this?
Should you decide that you do not want to become a full member of the Union, there is another option for you. Organisations can contact the Union to sign treaties and become 'affiliated' with the Union. This means that they have certain agreed benefits, depending on what is negotiated, such as: freedom of movement; no import or export tariffs for trade; mutual defense. Your organisation can designate delegates to the Union, in order to facilitate negotiation and cooperation, who we will recognise as 'affiliates'.
Only full members of the Union are able to benefit from the common contribution system, however, and affiliates will only be permitted to enter the Union's shared territories unless members agree to allow them within their own territories.
The Union is a member organisation of the Confederation of Allied Territorial Sovereignties (CATS).
