The idea was propossed to the members of the Inter-Micronational Treaty Organization and had interest in the idea was apparent very quickly, espacially from Westsylvania and Kinsovea.

Intergration

Military Intergration

As part of the Dale Commonwealth Agreement all new member states must intergrate their main armed forces into the Dale Armed Forces with government defence forces and police forces being an exception as they remain under full control of the members states and not the Dale Armed Forces. One major change to the Dale Armed Forces because of the Dale Commonwealth is the reintroduction of the Dale Navy as part of the Dale Armed Forces because of these new members having navies unlike the Dale Republic.

Dale Navy

When Westsylvania declared that they intended to join the Dale Commonwealth the idea of reinstating the Dale Navy was brought up by commander-in-cheif, Danny Clarke. This was because the Dale Republic had not had a navy since the political transition from the Kingdom of the Dale Empire to the Dale Republic ment the end of the Royal Dale Navy, and Westsylvania having a navy, even if it was made up of a single vessel made the consideration of the Dale Navy.

Economic Intergration

Another arrangement found in as part of the Dale Commonwealth Agreement is the economic intergration and the introduction of the Dale Republic Pound for all member states. The aim of the economic intergration is to increase and develop economic abilities of the Dale economy and all other members and visa versa. A exception to some autonomy avaliable economiclly is in the creation of overseas branches of the Dale Central Bank.
