Come join the UCA (United Coalition of alliances)! We're an alliance that formed with the merging of the UAN and the COIN. We're an extremely fun alliance to be in, with a Senate where everyone votes and can propose bills and amendments. We're also very peaceful, even going so far as to have a non-aggression amendment added to our charter. The UCA is a member of the M.A.C. defense bloc, meaning that we are well protected from attack.

Take a look at our current charter (I would like to note that this charter could change frequently due to changes being voted on in the senate):
