The Humanity Declaration Treaty or Declaration of Humanity’s Coalition against Demonkind is a pact treaty that was first set up by the Grand Chaos Empire, with the main goal to unite all human-led kingdoms in order to oppose any expansion by the Demon King. In layman's terms, it is like the United Nations or NATO on Earth. As such, there are three main clauses.
Any border changes due to military action by any kingdom are not acknowledged. In short, should any of the members of the treaty try to annex or capture each other's territories, then it will lead to military intervention by the Grand Chaos Empire to return the borders back to their original positions.
Every citizen within each kingdom shall have equal rights and the kingdoms shall respect their individual freedoms.
All kingdoms which are far away from the Demon King's territory shall work as support for the kingdoms that protect them, which are located near the Demon King's territory.
Contradictions and Problems Edit
Though this treaty was created with the intent of uniting all kingdoms and to stop wars between nations, it has failed on several counts, due to the contradictions of the first and second clauses. Not to mention that the third clause was the main reason behind the summoning of Souma Kazuya.
The first clause was ignored by the Principality of Amidonia, due to the fact that Elfrieden did not sign with the treaty and therefore, is not protected by it. As such, it was seen by Gaius Amidonia and his son as territory that was free to be invaded and annexed. However, when they lost the Five Day War and lost their capital city Vanne, Julius Amidonia hypocritically called on the Grand Chaos Empire for intervention, even though it was Amidonia who invaded in the first place.
The second clause interfered with the first clause when the citizens of Vanne and later the whole of Amidonia wished to merge with the Elfrieden Kingdom. Infringing on their rights and freedom would have violated the second clause, even though the first clause did not permit the changing of borders. However, due to the fact that the merging was not because of militaristic movement but rather a democratic process, the annexation of Amidonia was allowed.
Despite not being a signatory of the treaty, the Kindgom of Elfrieden was forced to pay war support, due to the third clause. However, this led to the summoning of Souma, which set the kingdom on the road to economic recovery and reform.
