NUCLEAR PROLIFERATION ACT
Proposed by Angleter :: Passed (7-4) November 9th, 2009 :: As amended by Gun-Toting Animals (8-6), April 25th, 2012, by Aalen (8-5), December 27th, 2015, and by Inquista (7-0), August 31st, 2018
This Act is designed to create a system of vetting and checking all nations who wish to own a nuclear deterrent, and also to create a system of sanctioning and punishing nations that contravene that system.
SECTION I. THE ROLE OF THE ENAA
There shall be set up a European Nuclear Applications Authority (ENAA). Any nation that does not already own a nuclear arsenal and wishes to develop a nuclear arsenal must apply to the ENAA for a licence to build a certain amount of nuclear warheads or nuclear missile launchers.
It shall make a judgement based on that nation's military history, length of time in the region, a visit to that nation, and any other criteria the ENAA see fit; whether that nation shall be permitted to build its desired nuclear arsenal. If a nation is permitted, then it may be limited to building a certain number of ICBM Silos, Ballistic Missile Submarines (SSBNs), Mobile ICBM Launchers, or nuclear warheads. This limit may be increased – if the ENAA sees fit to do so – over time.
SECTION II. THE MAKEUP OF THE ENAA
The ENAA shall consist of five members, three of which will be permanent members and two of which will be selected by the European Council every 12 months.
The three permanent members of the ENAA are as follows:
a. The Aelir of the Kendro-Laatzenian Dominions of the Duxburian Union
b. The Prime Minister of the Apostolic Kingdom of Angleter
c. The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain
d. The Royal Premier of the United Kingdom of Icholasen
The nations that will have representation on the ENAA should assign their most powerful political figure to the role.
To ratify a vote within the ENAA, a majority of 51% or greater of the present voting members is required.
SECTION III: THE COURSE OF ACTION IN CASE OF FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH ENAA DECREES OR FAILURE TO SUBMIT APPLICATION AND CREATING A PROLIFERATION PROGRAMME
A Decree is the term to be applied to any proposal ratified by the ENAA. There are three types of decree:
a. A License to Build a Nuclear Arsenal
b. A Limit on Nuclear Warhead/Missile Launcher Numbers
c. A Ban on Creating a Nuclear Arsenal
If a nation fails to comply with a decree or indeed fails to submit an application to the ENAA and carrying on with nuclear proliferation, then the ECoJ will be given original jurisdiction to try the offender.
- The Kingdom of Great Britain is no longer a member state of the European Union.
