[center][center]Well hello everybody, how are we all on this fine night/day/morning? Terrible? That's great to hear. In all likelihood, this is not the announcement you were expecting, and for that, we are truly sorry.[/center][/center]
[center][center]A year ago, the alliance known as the United Commonwealth of Nations was going through much internal turbulence and turmoil, mainly related to an up-and-coming merger. Unfortunately for all those involved, UCN did not survive the bumps. Well, not the UCN that went into them. Government members resigned, the alliance disbanded, and then, as if it were some form of demon, the alliance came back to life.[/center][/center]
[center][center]Old bonds were broken. Ties were severed. Europa was born, and many we had once aligned ourselves with turned their backs on us. Support came from an unlikely place, from the evil alliance known as GOONS. GOONS told fellow raiders we were hands-off, and, well, you all know where that story ends. [/center][/center]
[center][center]Yes, as of the 26[sup]th[/sup] of April, Europa is officially a year old and hovering at just over 1.6 million NS. Many didn't expect us to last this long. Alas, we are still here, still going, and still [b]not declaring war on CoJ[/b]. Sorry. I'd like to take the time to thank all of our allies for supporting us over the last 12 months, be they in the former Peace and Love Train, Blood for Friends, or any other alliance that we've had the pleasure of getting to know. FEAR and Wolfpack have been the greatest allies we could ask for. Along the same lines, Invicta, UBD, CCC, TLK and GOONS have proven to be steadfast, courageous allies to us, and we cannot thank them enough. In honor of all of our friends, we are throwing a party in our IRC channel, so swing by #CNEuropa for some Natty Ice, methamphetamine and jokes at Deebo's expense. [/center][/center]
[center][center]Oh. Right. We had elections a while back. I'm still the Grand Ayatollah, Deebo's still MoFA, Lewis Cowper is now our Minister of Interior, and I have the great honor of welcoming JonathanB to his position as Minister of Defense. [/center][/center]

[center][center] [/center][/center]
[center][center]Well, that's it for this edition of "Pointless announcement with Europa". [/center][/center][center][center]Here's to another year. Onward and upward.[/center][/center]
[center][center][size="1"](I realize that Europa's birthday is April 26th, but due to the number of rumors circulating, I thought it best to post this now. Also, it's my birthday, and I figured I'd shamelessly announce that too. Come at me.) [/size][/center][/center]

You announced this without my knowledge? I'm feeling let down :(

That's it I'm cancelling the DMT! :P

Also, to arms!

You're all going to wan to be there. Seriously. When Europa formed we partied so hard we found [url="http://i.imgur.com/kbinj.jpg"]this[/url] in the yard the next morning. 'Course we didn't stop the [url="http://i.imgur.com/Hs800.jpg"]party[/url] (which was probably a mistake as the [url="http://i.imgur.com/A2qph.jpg"]police lineup[/url] was a tad awkward).

So um yeah. Be there, or be square.

Happy Birthday Europa!

I sincerely say that I hope not to see another one of these announcements. After all, it would mean the failure of FEAR's and Wolfpack's plan to assimilate you within the year :awesome:

In all seriousness, If you guys don't reach the age of 4 at the very least, I will personally track each and every one you down and force you to endure Deebo's company for an entire month. Deebo will then of course be put to death :rolleyes:
