Public Treaties:

 

Treaty of Los Angeles, 1884

 

1. Great Britain and the United States join Japan in a three-way defensive alliance against Russia.


2.  Great Britain and the United States support the establishment of Japanese governance over the following provinces and will take military action against Russia should they attempt to stop such expansion:  Port Arthur, Manchuria, Central China, Shan-Tung, Shang-Hai, Fukien, Formosa, and Szech-wan.  Japan (and each country in this treaty), however, MUST have an Interest marker (or higher) placed in one of the above locations prior to Russia's attempt to control the said location.  All previous international interactions between Russia and Japan before the affirmation of this treaty are void of this clause.


3.  Japan and the United States support Great Britain's expansion into China and its interest in other areas of Asia. Specifically, Japan and the U.S. will intervene militarily on Great Britain's behalf against an ever-expanding and tyrannical Russia in the same manner as Clause 2 for the following areas:  Burma, Yunnan, Tibet, Kansu, Sin-Kiang, Kwang-Si, Indochina, Siam, Inner Mongolia, Mongolia, Afghanistan, and Turcomania.


4.  Japan and Great Britain support the United States and its quest to one day become a world power (a.k.a - become as cool as Japan and Great Britain).  Great Britain and Japan will take military action against Russia if it attempts to invade the following territories surrounding the United States (once again, in the manner described by Clause 2):  Hawaii, Alaska, Mexico, Central America, and Panama.  

5.  All areas currently of interest or above to these three countries falls under the defensive treaty herein established.

SIGNED,
Emperor Mattakeshi Mingomoto (Japan)
President Allan Carey (United States)
Lord High Admiral and General Sean Stewart (Great Britain)
