"Good evening, my friends, it is time for me to announce the existence of the newest corporation on the scene. Red Team is our home, and Evil is our game. We shall be appearing around for time to time to keep the intrigue value up.

You may find us at #monolith, and you may locate us at The Citadel of Doom.

Finally, I wish to announce our alliance anthem. While others are prancing about on their boats, and some others talk about the contents of their special parts, we say it straight, why not come and

Monolith Corporate Manifesto

I. Preamble

Monolith is a group of same-minded individuals who each have a fanatical devotion to being evil jackasses, with no respect for common decency. It is with this in mind, that we hope to become, and maintain a constant factor of fun with an exciting community, while at the same time, holding a unique and dynamic style.

II. Obligatory Message Which Nobody Will Read

Job Applications for Dummies

I. Literally anyone is welcome to join our merry band of henchmen and deranged fanatics, however, you must follow these strict rules and regulations before you consider applying for us:

1. Your nation must not be engaged in any wars, may that be aggressive, or defensive.

2. Your nation must not be labelled a rogue/terrorist or be on any kind of Zero Infrastructure Lists.

3. Your nation must have a positive standing within the Community of Cyber Nations, and must have any prior commitments resolved before engaging with us.

II. Prospective Henchmen must apply for membership by utilising the following format:

Nation Name:

Ruler Name:

Nation Link:

Nation Strength:

Colour Team:

Former Alliances:

Where did you hear about the wondrous world of Monolith?:

"I, ***Nation Ruler*** of ***Nation Name***, have read the Charter for Monolith and I promise to abide by it directly to the letter, for the rest of my time here at this alliance."

Handing in your P45

I. You may resign from your job as evil henchman here at Monolith during Peace time, with no repercussions at all, providing that you have paid off any pre-existing debts that you may have with us.

II. If you leave during a State of Emergency, you will be considered a deserter, and if you happen to join the affiliation of an enemy who is currently at war with us, it shall be considered an act of treason, an issue last experienced when somebody spiked the hot coffee with laxatives, and your evil boss commanding you had to hide away in a evil cubicle for most of the day, and even then, it stunk the place out. Overall, if you do desert, you will be placed on a "Must Steal Stapler" list.

III. Noticeboard Time

I. These are the following rules which must be followed when engaging with other players away from the game, or with other alliances:

1. Attacks which have not been given prior notice, and have not been authorised will be frowned upon, and their fate shall be considered...in the boardroom.

2. Monolith henchmen must treaty everyone in the world as their equals, yet their bosses can just treat their underlings like common dirt, exactly as it was intended to be.

3. Monolith members who take it upon themselves to post in the Open World Forums in the Public Boards must remember to follow the legislation put forward upon that area.

4. Impersonating anyone for malicious purposes, or for a gain, are overall, frowned upon, yet if you do a good enough job, you might not get hit as much.

5. Spying on anyone outside the game is frowned upon, unless it is to steal secret plans for world domination, and on the authority of your oppressors.

IV. Your Beloved Oppressors

Section I: Regarding the Chairman

The Chairman is the acting figurehead of Monolith, and therefore has the final say in any matters which may/not crop up. He also owns a really long and sturdy golden cane, with which he uses to hit henchmen who do not do his bidding as desired.

Section 2: Regarding the Chief Executive Officer

The CEO is the highest appointed successor to the Chairman, and is therefore, the natural successor to the golden cane. The CEO, of course, has to make sure that anything the Chairman demands, even if it involves dumping an endless stream of toxic waste into a rival, takes place. The CEO can also add his seal of approval to any job application which pops up.

Section 3: Regarding the Director of Defence

The DoD is the head of a top secret organisation saving the lives of henchmen everywhere without recognition. However, he can't go on a one-man-rampage on his own without the explicit approval from the Chairman. He may also create any titles/organisations to work under him, so that he can have a nice sense of worth, while really only being a pawn in a game of Monopoly.

Section 4: Regarding the Director of Finance

The DoF controls the operational tools to mint the money within the corporation, and for any of the henchmen within. He can also create useless titles/organisation underneath him if he believes he needs to invest in more power to the presses.

Section 5: Regarding the Director of Foreign Affairs

The DoFA is the dominatrix of any business meetings which may occur. He may appoint any poster-boys for Monolith, so that he can further the infiltration of foreign investors, and steal their secret recipes, and to further relations. He may also create titles and...you already know what I'm about to say, so I'll stop myself there.

V. Friday is Hawaiian Shirt Day

I. Diversity is accepted here at Monolith, and therefore, we shall set no guidelines on a specific flag which must be flown at all times by all henchmen.

II. As we are a Red Team alliance, it is recommended that any henchmen who are flying our name with pride should change to this colour team to allow for a greater unity within the Colour Sphere of Death.

VI. Company Barbecue

I. Monolith shall only go to war after careful consideration from the Chairman, and only he can decide on if war is necessary.

VII. The Art of Camera Fitting

I. Please refrain from spying, we really don't want another lawsuit. Next time, be more sneaky when installing a web-cam within the Women's Shower Room!

VIII. Investing in Money Bags with Dollar Signs

I. Whilst Tech Raiding is a tricky subject, we understand that to allow for our henchmen to experience war first-hand, we allow them to raid, as long as they follow these distinct rules:

1. Henchmen may only raid one victim at a time, and it is advised to never stand a fight you can't finish.

2. Henchmen are strictly prohibited from raiding anyone on the Red or Black Team.

3. Henchmen may not raid someone being raided by a comrade.

4. Henchmen may not raid anybody who is flying a Alliance Affiliation which has 5 or more members contained within their ranks.

5. Monolith has no obligation to assist anyone who engages in raiding.

6. Henchmen who engage in tech raiding must send a peace offer immediately to their target after finishing the raid..

7. Should a henchman be attacked after sending the peace offer, contacting a member on the board of directors is recommended before getting your revenge.

8. Failure to comply with the above rules may result in the deliverance of a P45 to your inbox.

IX. Planning for the Future

For now, we shall be using our current system of 2 Supreme Leaders and three Directors, yet as soon as the optimum limit is reached, change will be required, therefore, as soon as the 70+ limit is hit, a restructuring process will be put in place. We shall be having a series of votes for who should be the overall controller of the business, the directors, and the board of consultants.

The Consultants will be decided by two ways. Firstly, four of the henchmen shall be democratically elected, while a fifth shall be chosen by the newly elected Chairman.

Afterwards, Ministers will be selected by the Consultants/Chairman.

After this, the Chairman/Consultants shall form a 'Scales' system. This, in other words, means that the Consultants can overrule the Chairman by putting forth a unanimous vote, yet the Chairman can veto any decision which is made by the Consultants unless it is a unified decision.

X. With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

All future amendments need a majority approval to push it forwards.

Signed by the Board of Directors on Saturday, 11th July, 2009

Franz Ferdinand, Chairman

Brazilian "Braz" Rider, CEO

The Orange Stonehenge Pact

In which The Orange Defense Network (ODN) and Monolith sign a Protectorate.

Preamble - ODN and Braz are buddies. So one day, when Braz asked ODN to go to a party that he and a bunch of his friends were having, we didn't think twice about packing up our orange bus and following him out to somewhere in England. We're not sure how we got there, as Arsenal was driving and he lives in Canada. Silly Canadians and their defiance of space-time. Anyway, we pull up behind Braz and find that we're at Stonehenge and Braz's friends have all kinds of party stuff set up. So of course, we got off that bus as fast as we could and went off to party.

Unfortunately, we don't remember much after that, apparently someone spiked the Jagermeister. When everyone woke up, all the rocks were painted orange, the bus was on top of one of them (Arsenal was not too happy about having to get it down), and Braz was on top of this one big monolith. It took us a while to find him. And we still don't know where this chicken came from. Eventually, we found a camera that someone had taken pictures of the previous night with. There was some pretty crazy stuff on there, but the last picture was the full text of a treaty we'd apparently signed.

Article I - Members of the Orange Defense Network and members of Monolith shall show respect and courtesy towards one another.

Article II - Neither the Orange Defense Network nor Monolith shall engage in espionage, or war against another.

Article III - The Orange Defense Network will assist Monolith in building a healthy economy through reasonable means. Monolith and the Orange Defense Network will grant each other preferred status in any buying or selling of technology outside each alliance.

Article IV - The Orange Defense Network shall protect Monolith from rogue and unprovoked wars of aggression. Monolith is highly encouraged but not required to declare on any nation and alliance attacking the Orange Defense Network.

Article V - Should either the Orange Defense Network or Monolith receive information that indicates a threat to the security of one another, that information shall be communicated through private channels within 24 hours.

Article VI - Monolith can request members of the Orange Defense Network be given government level access on its forums for the purpose of economic advice at any time during the duration of this treaty. It can also remove advisers at its discretion.

Article VII - Monolith will agree to inform the Orange Defense Network of all treaties above PIAT level and take any advice given by the Orange Defense Network under due consideration before making a final decision.

Article VIII - This treaty may be cancelled at the discretion of the Orange Defense Network or Monolith. The canceling party shall be required to give the other alliance 48 hours prior notice. If Monolith commits a grave violation of the spirit of this treaty, the Orange Defense Network reserves the right to cancel the protectorate immediately.

Brazilian Rider, CEO

Meh, way too many new alliances popping in nowadays. :|

But good luck or something, I guess, you're going to need it if you don't plan to fall in oblivion or just die anytime soon like most alliances do.

The Cult of Justitia welcomes you to the Red sphere. As for evil, I believe you will find that existing Red alliances will brook no aggression; however, the Cult looks forward to working with you in the future, and I invite your members to participate in the red trading forum that has been set up.

This could cause some confusing if you call yourselves "The Citadel"

"Not really, the name reflects our headquarters, the boards, and not the alliance name. We are actually called Monolith."
