GUN offers you an opportunity to be more than just a number. We are currently a small community, having formed on April 2nd, 2011. Protected by our brothers in the World Federation, GUN provides a safe haven to grow your nation in peace, while always preparing for war. We are a semi-military themed alliance and our merit ribbons for achievements are military styled decorations. Our defensive ranks reflect this as well, along with our nod to the Call of Duty series.

[u][b]Government[/b][/u]

The Secretary-General and the Security Council are elected every 3 months. The Ministers are appointed by the Sec-Gen with a confirmation by the SC. For you, this means you decide who you trust to lead you, and it means you can achieve the position of greatest power and responsibility if you so desire it.

[u][b]Academy[/b][/u]

GUN also offers an optional academy. It's not required for membership, but the guides are well written, divided into four classifications; Marksman, Sharpshooter, Expert, and Distinguished Expert. Completion of the exam for the first section entitles you to your training merit ribbon, and a star attachment for each additional section completed.

When things are quiet on Planet Bob, our GUNners still need places to relax and chat with each other. The Armory provides a "Meet and Greet" forum for getting to know other GUNners and diplomats. Talk about events outside of CN at the "Water Cooler", pimp your profile with custom graphics from the "Graphics/Art" department, join in console or pc gaming discussions in the "Gaming" forum, and start up or join in an open or closed RP in the "Role Play" forum.
