Treaties and alliances

Since the beginning of their formal diplomatic relations, the USI Republic and Lomellina have both signed one treaty.


Termed by USI the "Deed of Mutual Recognition and Political Trust 1A" (U-DMRPT-1A), the Republic of USI and Lomellina have signed, and the latter also ratified, a bilateral treaty promising mutual recognition and a further political correspondence between the two nations. The formatting is very unorthodox; each of the countries have signed different documents pertaining to the same treaty. The Usian version lists all responsibities, while the Principality's document shows only the signature and footnote.

Section 1

The Republic of USI and the Principality of Lomellina hereby declare a state of mutual recognition and political trust.

— Section 1 of the UMRPT-1A

Section 1 is the main article of the 'deed', as the Republic of USI terms the treaty. "Political trust" here means the willingness to be politically friendly and not impose, for instance, unnecessary trade barriers.

Section 2

USI and Lomellina declare themselves ready to aid each other should one be attacked, in any way the respective nation sees fit.

— Section 2 of the UMRPT-1A

Should one nation be attacked, the other will give as much aid as it likes. This part can be regarded as an alliance; However, as the "aid" can be as little as offering condolences that a war started, this is not widely done.

Section 3

USI and Lomellina shall at all times from now on do their best to maintain diplomatic relations and are open to further deeds.

— Section 3 of the UMRPT-1A

Section 3 is also a vital part of the treaty, as it paves the road for further treaties and guarantees continued correspondence between the two countries.

Section 4

This deed expires on 14.08.2016, and must be renewed then.

— Section 4 of the UMRPT-1A

This treaty has an expiration date on which it must be renewed to ensure that it is not forgotten. Hence the "1A" in the Republic of USI's code for the treaty (U-DMRPT-1A).
