1. Limits: Companies, no matter the size, may only own one island total.
2. “The Good Neighbor Initiative”: Due to the limited amount of islands available, Island owners must be willing to let smaller companies live upon the island depending on roleplay and relations.
a. Permission: Companies looking to settle on an owned island are urged to speak to the owne before clairming a section of land for themselves. The governing company has dominion over the land.
b. Eviction: The only time a resident company can be forcibly evicted from the island is if they have repeatedly committed crimes upon the island or they have performed unprovoked aggressive actions against the other residents. They must be given notice and ample time to move.
3. Owner Governance: The owning company or “governor” has the right to:
a. Regulate: Regulate the size and aesthetic of the buildings placed by their own company members. Regulate the amount of land settled on by island residents, within reason.
b. Remove: Remove inactive players and their personal structures & ships if they obtain OOC permission to confirm they will not be returning.
c. Conserve: Request any island residents to shift their property if it blocks rare resource spawns or travel routes. Work with other island residents to keep their land litter free.
d. Evict: Evict any island residents who have committed crimes upon the island or have initiated aggressive actions against other residents.
e. Tax: Legally tax the island residents up to a maximum of 15% via the Taxation Bank. This island tax rate is considered valid public knowledge. Settlements can choose tax at a higher island rate or collect additional rent payments, but it may result in Navy action.
