Once upon a time, (meh lets cut the story out). The Majestic Order of Orange Nations (MOON) and Fear none Kill all (FnKa) have come together and decided to merge. We will be now known as... THE RESISTANCE (TR) (don't ask me why we chose that name.. I won't know how to respond :P )

We would also like to say that the ''Majestic Order of Orange Nations'' and ''FnKa'' alliance affiliations will remain under the protection of The Resistance for a period of two weeks from the moment of this topic being posted.

Now known as The Resistance, we would like to announce a few things:

1. Our charter.

2. MDoAP with The International.

3. Forums, wiki and IRC channel.

TR's new forums are located here: http://www.cn-theresistance.com/index.php

TR's IRC Channel: #the_resistance at Coldfront.net

TR's wiki: http://cybernations.wikia.com/wiki/The_Resistance

The Resistance's charter:

CHARTER OF THE RESISTANCE

I. Application Process and Membership

A. Application and Process

To gain membership to the Resistance an applicant must go through the application process. This process will include the completion of three of the following tasks;

d. Pass a Resistance Academy Test.

e. Log a fifteen minute session in the Resistance IRC channel (#the_resistance)

f. Reroll for better resources

g. Receive a voucher from a current government member of the Resistance.

In addition to completing one of these tasks each applicant will have to post an oath of fealty (this could count towards requirement A) to the Resistance and it's charter. Applicants should know that breaking this oath or the charter at any time during the application process could result in severe punishment most noticeably expulsion.

B. Accepting and Denying Applicants

The power to accept and deny applications will be solely at the discretion of the Minister of Recruitment (MoR) and any member they appoint to their Welcoming Committee (WC).

Mutual Defense and Optional Aggression Pact with The International:

The Southpaw Revolution Pact

intflag.pngtheresistance002.jpg

Having been brought together by long association and by the bonds of color, The International (INT) and The Resistance (TR) embody their relationship in this Compact.

Article I: Non-Aggression

Neither TR nor INT will premeditate, declare, or prosecute war or espionage against the other signatory, or encourage other alliances to do so.

Article II: Communication and Intelligence

Should either TR or INT come upon or gather intelligence with a bearing on the affairs or security of the other, that information must be made available to that other signatory within forty-eight hours.

Article III: Economic Integration

In the spirit of Orange unity, TR and INT affirm their commitment to economic cooperation.

Article IV: Mutual Defense

Both TR and INT undertake to defend each other should either be subject to aggression by an outside alliance. It is understood that an attack on one signatory is an attack on both signatories, and that if defense is requested, it must be undertaken to the fullest capabilities of both signatories.

Article V: Optional Aggression

Should either TR or INT deem it necessary to enter a state of aggressive war with a third party, then the other signatory may, at its discretion, offer support in said war, and is encouraged to do so.

Article VI: Cancellation

Should either signatory feel that any of the previous articles have been breached by the other signatory, the treaty may be cancelled. Forty-eight hours notice must be provided by the canceler indicating the reason for the cancellation.

I like your new flag but it's a smidgen off-center in both directions to the point of distraction, perhaps intentionally. In any case, congratulations and good luck.
