The Treaty of Gaelen's Landing, named so because of its signing in Gaelen's Landing on 16.VIII.1707 (the formal name of the treaty is, however, Agreement between the Her Magnificence the Kaiseress and the Unified Government of Greater Kildare on the reintegration of Kildare and its territories into Shireroth), is a treaty between Shireroth and Greater Kildare that, once ratified, would reunite Kildare with Shireroth and bring the rest of the former Democratic Apollonian Republic of Kildare under Shirerithian sovereignty.

Moreover, the treaty brings Zijincheng, in the inland of northern Cibola, under the authority of Mondo (with Mondo being reserved the right to secede from Shireroth at any point, as he, as a non-subject of the Kaiseress, is not bound by oaths or loyalty to her). The small island of Sint Barentsz is granted independence, and Alrig is brought under Shirerithian protection.

The treaty was signed by Chrysostom Wythe, Count of Woodshire and Steward of the Imperial Republic on behalf of Shireroth, and Lin Zexu, Imperial Magistrate and Commander of the Eight Gates for the Xinshi Heavenly Light, and by Lord Jin of San, Lady Liu of Pei, Lord Faustus of Tullas, Lord Claudius of Nan, and Lord Xuan of the Golden Tribe for themselves.

The laws currently in place in Greater Kildare shall be enforceable only as much as they conform with imperial law.

The independence of Sint Barentsz is recognized.
