Ambrosia Convention

A big part of the civilized world is run, in various degrees of covertness, by a collection of culinary guilds. After a history of bloodshed, these guilds agreed on a treaty that leaves them in a geopolitical stalemate. This treaty, called the Ambrosia Convention, bides each guild to contribute to society proportionately to their influence. They are also are not allowed to publicly impede each other’s domain. Of course, this doesn’t stop them from doing so indirectly, through subterfuge, diplomatic posturing, trade embargos, and even assassination.

All guilds signed the treaty at its proposition, except for the Spicers' Guild, which was not yet founded. The Spicers' Guild was later added to the accord as a neutral mediating party between the originating guilds because they couldn't agree on constitutional laws because of their fundamentally opposing values.
