The Blighty Doctrine is a document published and enacted by the Albion party on September 12, 2010. The doctrine marked the beginning of an Albion-exclusive nation known as Absolution, as well as a clarification of their attitudes towards aggression involving Albion members, and the law upheld in its cities. When published, it was stated that the doctrine was "for the advancement of Albion's security, prosperity, and consolidation as a world power".
Article 1: Nationality Edit
All Albion cities and citizens will operate under a nationality known as Absolution for the consolidation of a totally effective and secure productivity bonus.
Article 2: Aggressive Policy Edit
Unless stated otherwise, every citizen of Absolution will be subject to Albion's total protection from unjustified attacks, providing they have worked within the past seven days.
Article 3: Defensive Policy Edit
Unless stated otherwise, an attack on any member of Albion regardless of their activity will be regarded as an offensive manoeuvre against our party and we will respond accordingly.
Article 4: Legal Policy Edit
Albion reserves the right to modify the general law of its cities or Absolution as a whole, without notice. Albion will respond aggressively where appropriate to uphold the law.
Article 5: Ratification Edit
This doctrine is effective immediately; in all present and future Absolution cities, and - where applicable - to all other cities of the world.
The creation of Absolution was in particular criticised as Albion simply withdrew its cities (Rome and Sydney) from its current nationality Solaris, without notice to its fellow members. All citizens of both locations however were notified of the changes, and at the time both nations maintained the 15% productivity bonus despite the change.
