The Tripartite Treaty, also known as the Treaty of Frijfort, is a treaty reestablishing relations between Shireroth and Elluenuueq, on one hand, and Batavia, on the other. It was signed in Frijfort (previously known as Frankfurt-am-Oder).
Text of the Treaty
between the Kingdom of Batavia, the Greater Elwynnese State and the Imperial Republic of Shireroth
These three High Contracting Parties proclaim peace from coast to coast on the Benacian continent.
Article I - Sovereignty and territorial integrity
Each High Contracting Party shall respect the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of the other party. The High Contracting Parties shall continue to develop and consolidate the relations of sincere friendship, good neighbourliness and comprehensive cooperation existing between them on the basis of the aforesaid principles as well as those of equality and mutual benefit.
Territorial integrity includes the territory of a High Contracting Party to the extent acknowledged and published by the Micras Cartography Society.
The territory extends 24 kilometres from the baseline coast of the High Contracting Party. Including the localities where the coastline is deeply indented and cut into, or if there is a fringe of islands along the coast in its immediate vicinity, the method of straight baselines joining appropriate points may be employed in drawing the baseline from which the breadth of the territorial sea is measured.
The reserve zone of a High Contracting Party extends 360 kilometres from the baseline coast. The economic and environmental resources within this zone belong fully to that High Contracting Party. In special situations where the territorial waters or the reserve zone of the High Contracting Parties would overlap, the line of separation will be drawn along the midpoint between the baseline of each High Contracting Party.
Article II – Previous treaties
All previous treaties between Batavia and Elwynn and between Batavia and Shireroth are regarded as spent.
Article III - Airspace
Each High Contracting Party commits that any overflight of its airspace by aircraft registered upon the territory of the Other High Contracting Party, whose source and destination are outside the jurisdiction of the Overflown High Contracting Party and which make no intermediate landing upon the territory of the Overflown High Contracting Party, shall be considered to fall outside the remit of customs or immigration regulations and wholly outside the jurisdiction of any Third Parties, without prejudice to the exclusive right of the Overflown High Contracting Party to approve or deny such overflight as it sees fit.
The High Contracting Party can set up a Prohibited airspace, an overflight is strictly prohibited.
The High Contracting Party informs about Prohibited airspace and appropriate punitive measures follow an overflight of an aircraft registered with the other High Contracting Party.
Article IV – Diplomatic missions
The High Contracting Parties will maintain regular contacts with each other on major international problems affecting the interests of both of their countries and governments by means of meetings, and exchanges of views between their leading statesmen, visits by official delegations and special envoys of the governments, and through diplomatic channels.
The High Contracting Party will make an embassy available for each other. For the embassy, associated grounds, associated vehicles, leading statesmen, visits by official delegations, special envoys of the governments and ambassadors, diplomatic immunity applies. Each High Contracting party recognizes and respects the procedures of acceptance by the ambassador, by handing over a letter of credence, which is addressed from one head of state to the other asking to give credence.
Consulates-general, consulates, and honorary consulates may be established on the basis of mutual agreement between the affected parties.
Article V - Recognition of bureaucracy
Each High Contracting Party gives to the other full faith and credit to all public acts, records, contracts and judicial proceedings in the field of civil law, including records and documents on marriage, property, titles, death and inheritance, in as much as any act, record, document, contract, proceeding is done according to the law, in as much as conforming to this Treaty.
Article VI - Interpretation
Any difference of interpretation of any Article or Articles of this Treaty which may arise between the High Contracting Parties will be settled bilaterally by peaceful means in a spirit of mutual respect and understanding.
Article VII – Staatsholder and Succession
The Kingdom of Batavia reverently thanks Her Imperial Magnificence the Kaiseress in her capacity of Staatsholder of the Kingdom of Batavia. She agrees to resign no later than 1.XV.1691 in favour of the constitutional succession to the throne of Hendrik Leopold des Vinandy, born in 1645 to Karel Leopold des Vinandy and Elisabeth van Hollandt.
The Parties recognize that the abdication of the former King of Batavia, Arkadius IV, also refers to the illegibility of succession of his children.
Article VIII – Disputes
The Parties vow that until they have settled these disputes, no child of Clara Sundara may hold any office of state in any of the High Contracting Parties. Similarly, until the disputes have been settled, the jurisdiction, decisions, opinions and orders of the Froyalan Tribunal are unenforceable in all territories under the sovereignty or jurisdiction of the Parties.
Article VIII - Land exchange
The Kingdom of Batavia hands over Los Bananos to the Greater Elwynnese State. The Greater Elwynnese State hands over a strip of land with the cities of Esterion and Frijfort to the Kingdom of Batavia, according to the affixed maps.
Signed in Frijfort, this 11.IV.1691
