The Alliance of Jericho was established on October 10, 2008 as a union of nations bound together to freely express their ideas and to create a government and an organization that can better the world. Jericho has evolved into a professional and mature alliance that takes its membership and their opinions seriously. The small alliance and friendly atmosphere of Jericho is a great alternative to the larger alliances with their hussle 'n bussle culture. Jericho offers a great opportunity for people to make new friendships while also offering the channels in which you can build a career in politics or in the military.

We back all our members, no matter their demographic, with aid, defense, and attention. At Jericho you will be able to speak to the government directly, and have a large say in the way things are done in the alliance, no complicated forums, no giant network of IRC channels - just simple and effective with you, the member, as our top priority and concern.

Preamble

We join together to found this organization, Jericho, a party that is united in its belief in equality, freedom from all forms of exploitation and oppression, and the protection of all natural rights.
