The League of Novaris, commonly abbreviate as the LN and referred to as simply the League by member states, is an intergovernmental organization in Novaris.

The League was created on June 13, 2017, with the signing of the Charter of the League of Novaris by six founding nations: Aponivia, Kuthernburg, Lapinumbia, Mexregiona, Nacata, and Tretrid. The creation of the League occured against the backdrop of the then-ongoing Auroran-Pacific War, which saw Kuthernburg, Mexregiona, and Tretrid fight on the side of the Bursil Alliance. This resulted in increased dialogue between the three nations and led to talks between them and aligned nations to create an organization to preserve regional peace, ensure international cooperation, and to represent Novaris on a global stage. The League roughly sought to emulate the Auroran Continental Assembly, though significantly less restrictive. The Novaran Council manages the relations between the League and international entities and sets League policy, while various sub-organizations allow member and associate states to cooperate on matters like infrastructure and social development.

There are three types of League nations: Full Members, who have voting seats at the Council and have most if not all of their territory in Novaris, Affiliates, who may vote on the council in case of a tie and have some territory in Novaris, and Observers, nations that cannot vote and possess no territory in Novaris but are invested in furthering relations with League states.

The League of Novaris has grown to include twenty-five member nations since its founding, and has gained four affiliate and one observer nations.

Member states[edit | edit source | hide | hide all]

The League has grown from its six founding states (Arlavia, Celanora, Lapinumbia, Mexregiona, Hustreache, and Tretrid) to a total of twenty-five full member states.

Prospective members are approved by a simple majority vote of the Novaran Council to be admitted into the League of Novaris.

Structure[edit | edit source | hide]

The League of Novaris is a term applied to generally refer to multiple organizations that consist of it. The two organizations in the League that are generally considered to consist of the "League proper" are the Secretariat and the Novaran Council, which were created under the terms of the Charter of the League of Novaris.

The League of Novaris contains a number of sub-organizations. These groups are managed by member and affiliate states and are used to facilitate economic, research, military, and transport cooperation between likeminded nations. Sub-organizations are not controlled or overseen by the Novaran Council, but it is generally accepted that the Council can choose to censure or dissolve these groups if necessary. Admission into sub-organizations is granted to interested nations by simple majority votes of the sub-organizations current members. Observer states can also join, but are not granted voting privliedges.

Secretariat[edit | edit source | hide]

The Secretariat of the League of Novaris forms the administrative and bureaucratic apparatus of the LN. It is headed by the Secretary-General. The Secretariat is responsible for the maintenance of League facilities, security on LN property, updating the roll of involved nations, as well as most of the behind-the-scenes work that allow the other organizations to function and exist under the name of the League of Novaris.

Novaran Council[edit | edit source | hide]

The Novaran Council, occasionally abbreviated as the NC, is the highest deliberative body within the League. All members, associates, and observers of the League of Novaris are given a seat in the Novaran Council, though only members may have a vote. The Novaran Council handles matters of admission to the League, and is empowered to pass binding resolutions regarding the League itself.

The Novaran Council is also able to approve sanctions and to condemn other nations, which it is often done in response to international crises.

Conference for Amity and Cooperation[edit | edit source | hide]

The Conference for Amity and Cooperation, or CAC, is a joint development program and information sharing agreement between Älemsi Negdel, Antora, Cryria, the Kelamí League, Mexregiona, and the Varentine League. The CAC represents the interests of these nations, most of which are located near the Rotantic Circle. Various programs and agreements between CAC nations exist to further their economic and scientific capabilities, as well as provide a joint intelligence sharing system for the intelligence agencies and strategic organs of their governments. The CAC does not constitute a military alliance, but its members do trade defensive technology with each other significantly more than with other countries.

Some of the projects the CAC has undertaken include joint arms development on multirole icebreaker-capable warships, which has produced the Amity-class patrol vessel, and establishment of global data and seed preservation facilities within the Rotanic Älemsi territories. Ongoing programs consist of expanding free trade provisions between member states, cooperative satellite uplink infrastructure via Cryrian space programs, designing COIN-capable armored vehicles and aircraft, renewable energy research, sustainable Rotantic agriculture research, and establishing permenant trade routes through the Rotantic Ocean.

Council of South Novaris[edit | edit source | hide]

The Council of South Novaris is an economic and travel partnership between Lapinumbia, Transnalpia, and Tretrid. Member states have open borders and a unified visa program as well as interconnected economic and trade systems. The CSN was founded in the 20th century and was brought under the League umbrella after the larger organizations' founding.

Novaran Transportation Commission[edit | edit source | hide]

The Novaran Transportation Commission, or NTC, is a large organization that operates the Novaran Transportation Network. It is unique among sub-organizations in that it was created via resolution of the Novaran Council. The NTC operates, funds, and develops the trans-Novaran infrastructure used in international and regional trade, including railways, ports, roads, and other transportation facilities. Its current members include Aponivia, Antora, Durakia, Ekvatora, Gamlevinland, Gräntierik, Lapinumbia, Meagharia, Seccera, Transaplia, Tretrid, Varletia, Vesienväl, and Volscina, over half the current League states. Its current Chairwoman is Isis Gay.

Novaran Workers' Rights Council[edit | edit source | hide]

The Novaran Workers Rights Council, or NWRC, is an organization comprised of socialist and generally left-wing states formed to protect the rights of workers and the impoverished, termed by the NWRC as the "Proletariat" and the "Underclass." The NWRC is affiliated with the Organization of Socialists for the Rights of the Proletariat. The organization publishes an annual report known as the Little Red Folder on the state of workplace safety and worker conditions across Novaris. Member states are required to maintain a high standard of workplace ethics and workers rights and cooperate in the actions of the Council aimed at promoting trade unions, collective bargaining, cooperative ownership, and anti-exploitation legislature. The NWRC has visa agreements and trade treaties between their members, which include Durakia, Ekvatora, Gräntierik, Vesienväl, and Sarvimaa.
