The War Against Tourism (T.W.A.T.) update


With a state of war continued with Monsters Inc, a new AA was discovered harboring former and vacationing Minc members going by the title "The Final Countdown". Below is a picture taken by an illegal drone. Congratulations to all involved!






The revised charter is as follows:


Articles of the Federation IV

The World Freedom Federation (WFF) is Ace Combat/Starship Troopers/Battlestar Galactica/Firefly/Apocalypse Now/Frozen themed. This makes an interesting combination of military and also sci-fi within the alliance. Every Citizen has the ability to advance up the ranks, you can get out of the WFF exactly what you put in.

"If you wanted to teach a baby a lesson, would you cuts its head off?'
Why . . . no, sir!'
Of course not. You'd paddle it. There can be circumstances when it's just as foolish to hit an enemy with an H-Bomb as it would be to spank a baby with an ax. War is not violence and killing, pure and simple; war is controlled violence, for a purpose. The purpose of war is to support your government's decisions by force. The purpose is never to kill the enemy just to be killing him . . . but to make him do what you want him to do. Not killing . . . but controlled and purposeful violence. But it's not your business or mine to decide the purpose of the control. It's never a soldier's business to decide when or where or how--or why--he fights; that belongs to the statesmen and the generals. The statesmen decide why and how much; the generals take it from there and tell us where and when and how. We supply the violence; other people--"older and wiser heads," as they say--supply the control. Which is as it should be. That's the best answer I can give you. If it doesn't satisfy you, I'll get you a chit to go talk to the regimental commander. If he can't convince you--then go home and be a civilian! Because in that case you will certainly never make a soldier."

― Robert A. Heinlein, Starship Troopers

We recognize that unregulated Democracy is mob rule. We also recognize that totalitarianism is almost always started at the ballot box. Therefore, the WFF is based on the ideas of a Libertarian Meritocracy. With higher ranks having higher responsibility, all incoming government members are expected to have a background of merit, civic virtue and be of outstanding personal character. The core values of honor, courage and service are instilled into every citizen.


Article I: Citizenship
Section I: What is a Citizen?

Every member that has passed through the applicant phase is a citizen. The Citizen rank is the first earned, and the only one that will stay as long as you are an “active” member. Every Citizen has the duty to vote in Citizen votes and Referendums. Remember that Service Guarantees Citizenship!

Section II: Earning Citizenship

To become a Citizen, one must register on the WFF Forums and fill out a Citizen application. Before this, the potential applicant must change their alliance affiliation (AA) to World Freedom Federation. If your application is approved, you will have one week to study for the Federal Citizenship Exam. Once the exam is passed, you will have earned the Citizen rank and become an official WFF member. Any denied applicants have the right to a detailed reasoning for said application denial. You may apply as many times as you’d like unless on the blacklist.

Section III: Absent without Leave (AWOL)

A Citizen has the right to be a non-hacker and “resign” from WFF with the minimum of a 48 HR notice. All tech deals must have been completed prior to leaving the AA. Failure to comply will result in you being marked AWOL. If you are marked AWOL you have 24 hrs to take corrective action. Failure to comply will result in you being placed on the WFF blacklist and you will never be allowed to party again.

Section IV: Activity Requirements

World Freedom Federation currently requires all members to log on to the forums or an approved live chat service at least once every three weeks to be considered satisfactorily active. If a member falls below this level their forums account is marked “Inactive”, if a member returns to Cybernations they will have the ability to rejoin WFF without fully reapplying. If a member returns to Cybernations and does NOT rejoin WFF within 24 hrs, they will be removed from the WFF roster and be forced to reapply if they wish. Any prospective government official needs to maintain a level of activity that is decent, participating in alliance discussion at least a few times a week. Utilizing a communication program such as Skype or IRC is mandatory.

Article II: Government
Section I: Skymarshal and Deputies

Skymarshal (SM) The Skymarshal is the highest governmental authority, overlooking all aspects of the alliance; including firing government members for delinquency and/or appointing temporary government members. Any member serving at least one year honorably within the WFF is eligible to be selected as a candidate. In the event the Skymarshal resigns, he may select a replacement. This replacement is to be approved by the same vote of confidence procedure as used for selecting a new Skymarshal.

Deputy Skymarshal (Dept.) The Deputy Skymarshal is the second highest in the chain of Command. There is one Deputy Skymarshal for each department of Internal Affairs, External Affairs and an Auxiliary Deputy. The Internal Affairs Deputy oversees Economics, Internal Affairs and Defense strategies. The External Affairs Deputy oversees Foreign Affairs, Defense and Economics strategics. Each Deputy is selected by the current Skymarshal.

The Skymarshal may be removed by a vote of no confidence. To remove the Skymarshal, a case of his misdeeds must be brought before the Citizens in the Alliance Affairs area in a new topic. If the membership of WFF feels the Skymarshal is not living up to his duties, they may vote with 75% majority of membership and 75% majority of the government to remove him, at which point the Internal Affairs Deputy Skymarshal will assume the Skymarshal position.

Section II: Secretaries

Secretaries are third highest in the chain of command. They are appointed by the Skymarshal based on a Citizens quality, activity and ability.

Internal Affairs Secretary (IA) Maintains the Citizen Academy and heads the recruitment department. Also responsible for basic forum moderation and organization. Will also organize and present monthly editions of the Federal News. Responsible for every Citizens' trades and also tech deal and aid flow. Will set goals for every nation to assist in infrastructure jumps and also maintain a steady tech deal flow to aid individual growth. While working with other government, will make sure the over all economic goals set by the Skymarshal are met.

Friendly Face Secretary (FF) Primarily the link for information between the alliance and allies, but also a diplomat to foreign alliances. The FF is responsible for maintaining an active list of which Citizens are posted where and assigning Citizens on such a list all while keeping the WFF spirit and spreading it to others.

Article III: Policies and Customs
Section I: Rules of Engagement

No Citizen is to engage a nation under the WFF or allied flag unless the target is deemed a rogue or other enemy by the Skymarshal. Attacking a nation under a foreign alliance flag is not allowed unless ordered by government. Punishment for not following these orders can be very severe and are handled on a case by case basis by the Skymarshal. (see Article III, Section IV)

Section II: War Time Policy

It is to be a standard practice of the Skymarshal and WFF government to make an official Declaration of War, for all eyes to see, before engaging another alliance in large scale conflicts.

A first strike nuclear policy may be enacted to secure the defense of the alliance and allies. Non-nuclear engagements are open to discussion via diplomatic channels in certain situations that demand said course of action.

In the event a DoW is made, every Citizen must work together and fight. If a Citizen leaves the AA under any circumstance during a time of war, that Citizen will be stripped of any rank earned and considered AWOL. Citizens of the World Freedom Federation are never to surrender as a POW. A given nation must exhaust all efforts to resist before considering entering peace mode for R&R unless otherwise ordered.

Section III: The Chain of Command and requesting redress

In the event a Citizen has an inquiry about internal policies or requesting redress for an internal issue, they should contact the Skymarshal at once. All issues are dealt with on a case by case basis by the Skymarshal or delegated to a lower government official if required.

Section IV: Crimes and Punishment

Other than going AWOL during a time of war, every Citizen charged with a violation has the right to appeal and/or be heard on the subject. Every violation is dealt with on a case by case basis by the Skymarshal. A charge can be overturned by a majority consensus of the government.

Section V: Referendums

In the event the government wishes or is requested, alliance decisions can be made by way of an alliance referendum. All Citizens are eligible to vote, with a majority vote being declared the winner. Issues such as war and peace are not eligible for referendum. If it is decided that the Articles of the Federation need revision, a Citizen forum may be held for discussion. Only revisions to Article III may be proposed, with exception given to adding ranks at or below Commander. Proposals must be drafted by Government and then be proposed for a aye or nay vote of the Citizens, with the results being in the favor of Citizens majority.

Section VI: Treaties and Citizen Rule

The World Freedom Federation is not a neutral alliance, and we always welcome diplomacy. Sometimes, we find that special someone and want to get even closer. All treaties must be approved by the Skymarshal before presentation to the Citizens for voting. The treaty will stand before the Citizens for 48 hours unless an extension is approved. An extension shall not exceed 24 hours. Upon the conclusion of this 24 hour period, the votes will be counted and a result presented to the Skymarshal. All treaty approvals require a simple majority approval from the Citizens and the signature of the Skymarshal.
