The Augustan Federation is an international organization in CivClassics 2.0 that consists of Mount Augustan successor states and nations with Augustan cultural heritage. Federation members are divided into two tiers of membership, the Council, a mutual defense alliance, and Associates States (formerly Consortium) benefit from a wider economic alliance[1].

History

Following Mount Augusta's inactivity and the posterior creation of Mount September and South Augusta, the need for an international organ that grouped Augustan successor states together became more and more apparent. Drafts for the charter of a proto-augustan union began to be made in early 2021.

Following the Confederation of Socialist Augusta's admission to the Augustan Council on March 2021, all augustan successor states were part of the Augustan Federation. The Augustan Council elected squareblob its first President that same month. However, the expulsion of South Augusta from the Augustan Federation marked the end of the alliance between all of former Mount Augusta[2].

Past and Present Positions and Structure

Present

Augustan Council Members

The Augustan Council is the main body of the Augustan Federation, as it is in charge of electing the President of the Augustan Federation, currently RedDevel, and deliberating whether to admit or expel other member states. In addition, Augustan Council members agree to defend each other from unjust aggression. Each Augustan Council member state has one or two representatives[1].

Augustan Associate Members

Augustan Associate member states participate in the non-aggression pact, and also the wider economic union. This allows like-minded states and their members to collaborate in projects that range from infrastructure to cultural activities. It was called the Augustan Consortium when the Augustan Federation was formed but was later renamed.

Augustan Development Bank

The Augustan Development Bank (ADB) acts both as an auditor of the Augustan Federation's resources, as well as an intermediary between rising non-member states or individuals and the rest of the Augustan Federation. It is directed by the ADB Chairman, appointed by the AF President. The current ADB chairman is BritishWanderer[3]. The ADB recieves 8 diamonds per month from the Augustan Council to finance its projects.

Past

Principal Council

The Principal Council was made up of Principal Representatives from the Augustan Federation's founding members (Mount September and the Antipodean Union). This body could veto some rulings, if in unanimous agreement. As of October 14th 2021, the Principal Council no longer exists[4].

Former Members

Expelled

South Augusta

A founding member of the Federation, South Augusta was expelled from the Federation in late October 2021 following a vote started by the CSA.[9] The vote was called due to repetitive offensive comments made by the leader of the South Augusta, notably on the subject of transgender people.

Kaltsburg

Kaltsburg, previously a Consortium (Associate) Member[10] was expelled from the Federation in late September 2021[11] due to its inactivity.

Invoked section A.6

Members of the Augustan Federation can invoke section A.6 of the charter of the Augustan Federation, which allows any member state to unilaterally exit the Federation at any time[1].

Gabon

Gabon invoked section A.6 of the AF charter on November 23, 2021[12] due to the perceived lack of transparency, democracy and neutrality. AF President RedDevel wished Gabon much success despite this.

Lusitania

Lusitania invoked section A.6 of the AF charter on December 4, 2021 due to "clear disagreements on topics raised recently"[13], chief of which was the AF's lack of response to Yodabird's stone bombing of a innocent nation[citation needed] for which he paid 32 diamonds[citation needed] in reparations and faced no other consequences, which went against Lusitania's core ideals and beliefs. Metriximor asked the AF to make reforms or reconsider the AF-CES alliance alltogether, the AF in turn put up to vote asking the CES a voluntary pearling of Yodabird as punishment, however the vote failed. Due to this event and also a few minor events in the past that had compounded, the Lusitan government voted unanimously to leave the AF after Metriximor proposed it.
