The Yimoan Imperial Declaration, was a declaration that the Empire signed, with the Cenarion Circle, Kirin Tor, Argent Crusade, Earthen Ring and Knights of the Ebon Blade as an official declaration of neutrality in the conflict between the Horde and Alliance. This reaffirmation of neutrality stated that the Empire would continue to trade and conduct commerce with the Horde and Alliance both on equal standing.
The Yimoan Imperial Declaration upholds the principles of independence that the Empire holds as pivotal to its survival and distinctiveness. It also attracted many immigrants from both Horde and Alliance who simply wanted to live their lives in peace.
Emperor Yimo also declared that the Empire would protect its neutrality with force and protect its borders if necessary, stating clearly that this would be a near permanent status for the Empire.
