Ur Trade Pact
|Ur Trade Pact|
The Ur Trade Pact was a large international organization directed by the Ur government. The purpose of this pact was to allow broad economic expansion for all its members and better relations between a wide range of nations through economic transactions courtesy of Ur. Note: This Ur Trade Pact is strictly business, no political ties implied. Pacts of allegiance are not included; Does NOT mean there are no political ties. In fact there were many.
The trade pact was formed because the Ur player wanted to have a wider-range of RP abilities. Members of the UTP would be able to have broader, more flexible powers in Role-Playing. They would have more funding, backing, and materials that could be acquired through the trade pact. The UTP trade forums were very active for a timeand facilitated many deals between nations and corporations.
Despite its supposedly non-military nature the UTP was deeply involved in the Coalition War, since many UTP nations participated and it was coordinated from their forums. The Coalition War plan was known as Operation MAGE, and directed against Melkor Unchained and the region of Arda .
As the founding nation retreated into isolationalism, the UTP became more and more inactive despite attempts of Angelus and others to reform it. The government of Knootoss launched KIST, in part to succeed this alliance.

UTP Co-Defence Group
The UTP Co-Defence Group was established for the open discussion of the use of military force in keeping the UTP trade routes open. If a nation is invading a UTP nation, the UTP: CDG Council would decide if it warrented UTP action. Any military action had to pass with a 3/4ths majority. The Co-Defence Group was made up of volunteer nations, so even if the CDG Council decides to go to war, only the volunteer nations will be envolved.
