The Armed Coalition of Valor is a growing alliance on the Aqua Sphere, founded on May 6, 2008. The ACV is a militaristic alliance, striving for the ultimate proficiency in combat and discipline. The government structure is one of a Meritocracy, with leaders being chosen based on their merit, rather than elections, connections, and strength. The Commanding Officer of the General Staff is the de facto Head of State, with the General Staff serving as the Government.

The Armed Coalition is also a former protectorate of the Mostly Harmless Alliance.

The War of the Coalition Edit

The Armed Coalition made an appearance in the War of the Coalition when the Commanding Officer gave the order to preemptively attack the Alliance of Neutral Armadas in defense of its protectors in the Mostly Harmless Alliance. The side-skirmish originally just contained the two alliances until the Pirates of the Parrot Order declared on the Armed Coalition of Valor in defense of its allies in the Alliance of Neutral Armadas. On the first night of war, the Armed Coalition of Valor had one in anarchy, and the Alliance of Neutral Armadas had ten which fell to the blitz of the Armed Coalition. Despite the fact that ANA was originally larger and stronger than the ACV, the ACV brought both PPO and ANA down through constant attacks, crippling their respective war machines. The conflict was completed when ANA and PPO officially surrendered to the ACV after just a few nights of fighting.
