Not to be confused with the first De Groot Conference from the Frosian War in May 2014.

The second De Groot Conference, also affectionately known as the Christmas Conference, was a diplomatic conference which took place on December 24th, 2014 in De Groot, Seal Islands. The conference was hosted to discuss progress made in 2014, and to layout plans for the year to come.

Topics Discussed[edit]

SATO Funding[edit]

See main article: SATO

At the dawn of the SATO War, it was obvious to all members at the conference that SATO was dangerously underfunded, and the organization could fall victim to another relatively small threat. The leaders at the conference agreed that there should be more funding allocated to SATO. Before the conference, SATO members devoted 2% of their military budget to the organization. Lavender brought up the proposal to set a quota for each nation to fulfill independent of their military budget. The discussions ended with an agreement stating that each SATO member would have to put 5 billion coins into the SATO budget each year (or, 10% of their military budget if they could not afford 5 billion coins- such as Pengonia). The Turtly government-in-exile was given an exemption to this, as they have no standing military nor funding.

Trans-Antarctic Pipeline[edit]

See main article: Trans-Antarctic Pipeline

At the time of the conference, Shops Island's Trans-Antarctic pipeline had just finished construction. Oil had not yet begun to flow through the pipeline, so Shops Island decided that now would be the perfect time to lay down the law. President Lavender stated and clarified that Shops Island would give each country on the line oil for free, in exchange for free trade and the right for the Shopper military to use bases in any of the countries that the pipeline passed through. The statement was controversial to say the least, but after much deliberation, all countries at the conference agreed.

Environmental Protection Clauses[edit]

Moon Colonization Treaty[edit]

See main article: Moon Colonization Treaty

Antarctic War on Terrorism / Antarctic War on Tyranny[edit]

See main article: Aftermath of the Short War

Robert Smith plead for all the nations at the conference to help join the war against terrorists in Antarctica trying to destroy all the nations and to also help fight tyranny across Antarctica.
