JAPO-FRANCO-ITALO-AMERICAN TREATY OF BRITISH DESTRUCTION

The great nations of Japan, France, Italy and the United States agree to the following terms of a defensive alliance intended to create peace,
promote the colonial expansion of each nation, and oppose the aggressive imperialism of Great Britain:

1. The undersigned nations agree to defend each other militarily in the event that a casus belli arises between an allied nation and a nation
outside of the alliance.  The specific nation involved in the initial casus belli shall have discretion as to which of the allied nations
shall be called upon to assist in the defense of its interests.  The offended nation shall have the right to call upon any or all of the
allied nations to come to its aid.

2. A nation not called upon by an offended nation to assist in a war shall use a portion of its income on the next turn to help the offended
nation recoup its military losses, if any, from the war in which it was not called upon to contribute militarily.  This financial support shall
not exceed one quarter of the contributing nation's income for the turn in question.  If no military losses occur, no contribution will be
required.  If the military losses amount to less than a quarter of the contributing nation's income, only enough income will be required to
recoup the losses.  If more than one allied nation is not called upon to assist militarily, those nations shall split the cost of recouping the
losses equally.

3. A nation called upon by an offended nation to defend that nation's interests may only refuse to do so by forfeiting its entire income for
the next turn to the offended nation.  If this income is not forfeited, a casus belli shall exist against the refusing nation for all of the
other allied nations.

Signed,
Minister Batcheldera, Japan
Marechal de Burkett, France
Minister Larsoni, Italy
