Eras can also be grouped into Ages.
Below is a list of eras that one may encounter.
New Pacific Order Eras
The following eras are used by the New Pacific Order and are not necessarily representative of other alliances or Cyber Nations as a whole. Notable Events includes only things that were relevant to the NPO at that time.
These pages relate to the New Pacific Order in general, and do not have specific ages or eras to go with them.
These pages relate in some way to Nation States and the New Pacific Order there. During the August Revolution in 2003, an incarnation of the Order was established by Francos Spain, later players of NS later migrating to CN to establish a new Order.
This era takes place from the founding of the New Pacific Order right up to the Warpstorm War. It has been named the Golden Era as it was a time of great growth for the Order, up to the end of the Warpstorm War when the world as a whole ceased to stand with the NPO as they once had.
- Ivan Moldavi is elected Emperor
- First Arctic War
- Citrus War
- ICSN Debacle
- Second Arctic War
- The New Polar Order is founded
- Warpstorm War
This era takes place following the end of the Warpstorm War in July. Later that month (July 15) a chain of events set off the Great Patriotic War (or Great War I). The war lasted for about two weeks before a peace deal was reached. Following this, both sides, one led by the New Pacific Order and the other by LUEnited Nations, formed blocs, being the World Unity Treaty and League respectively. Following this there lasted a "cold war" period before Great War II was declared over the issue of the alliance of Fark, which ended with the surrender and end of the League.
- Great Patriotic War
- Ivan Moldavi steps down as Emperor, Dilber succeeds him
- Formation of the World Unity Treaty
- Second Great War
- Holy War of Farkistan
- Dilber steps down as Emperor, TrotskysRevenge succeeds him
This era takes place following the end of Great War II. With the League having surrendered, the World Unity Treaty became the most powerful bloc in the history of CN. Peace did not last long however, as Great War III broke out between WUT and Aegis, a war coalition consisting of former League alliances and their allies. The war ended with the defeat of Aegis and several of those alliances disbanding, making WUT the undisputed power. Following this, a number of wars occurred, notable among them was the FAN-WUT War, which began on June 18 and was set to continue for many months ahead, making it one of the longest wars. It was also in this time, that the Holy War of Farkistan ended. Then on August 10, the Unjust Path treaty bloc was announced, with several WUT alliances in it.
This era takes place following the formation of the Unjust Path. Rifts began to develop among the signatories of the World Unity Treaty, threatening its existence. The Order attempted to balance all of its commitments but to no avail, as on September 9 the Unjust War began. The war was tricky for the Order, as allies and former allies fought on both sides. Following the end of the war - which resulted in the end of the World Unity Treaty - a new bloc was formed, One Vision, between NPO, NpO, IRON and GGA. Then on December 7 another new bloc was formed, larger than WUT and the most powerful in history, the Continuum.
- The Unjust War
- Formation of One Vision
- Announcement of the Revenge Doctrine
- Formation of the Continuum
- Reeducation of Devildogs
This era takes place following the formation of the Continuum. On December 17 the NPO and One Vision allies redeclared on FAN, sparking the FAN-1V War, which would last for over a year. Following this a number of wars occurred between January and June involving the Order and its allies for various reasons. These include the GATO-1V War. Then on June 22, the New Polar Order was ejected from One Vision following a vote of the three other signatories, signalling a relative end of peace since the last global war.
This era takes place following the ejection of the NpO from One Vision, and the subsequent acceptance of MCXA and Echelon into the bloc. Sides for the next large war began to align which ultimately culminated in the War of the Coalition. The war also saw the creation of Vox Populi which went on to target members of the Continuum in a protracted propaganda campaign in an attempt to split the bloc. At the end of the War of the Coalition the Continuum still reigned supreme but the power base began to crack as an Anti-Order/Anti-Hegemony movement gathered steam. The climax of this time was the formation of Karma and the beginning of the War of Armageddon (or Karma War), one that would result in a decisive shift in power.
- FAN-1V War
- NPO-BDC War
- CIS-1V War
- Dissolution of the Ordinance of Order with the New Polar Order
- War of the Coalition
- Vox Populi Resistance Movement
- NPO-Jarheads War
- Karma War
The War of Armageddon which began on April 21 over allegations of the alliance of Ordo Verde rapidly turned into a much bigger war as the Order and then other allies faced off multiple alliances, brought into the fray through treaty commitments. The war lasted for three months, with it finally coming to an end in July as the NPO signed the surrender document. The Karma War had shattered the side known as the Hegemony, bringing an end to the power blocs of One Vision and the Continuum. Later, Emperor Moo stepped down and appointed Cortath in his place. On May 20, 2010, the Order completed its reparations and was released from its surrender terms, signalling a new beginning. After that time, the Order grew in strength including reaching over 5000 nuclear weapons held.
- Vox Populi Resistance Movement
- Karma War
- End of One Vision
- End of the Continuum
- TrotskysRevenge steps down as Emperor, Cortath succeeds him
- Establishment of the Red Dawn econ bloc
- Bipolar War
On May 20, with the completion of the Karma War surrender terms, Emperor Cortath declared the interregnum ended. During this time period, the Order experienced explosive growth and recovery from the Karma War. On July 31, the Council Pacifica was abolished and Internal Affairs Operations was created. Also in July, the Red Safari occurred, in which several tech raiding alliances attempted to goad the Order into war by attacking unaligned Red nations which NPO protects via the Revenge Doctrine. Shortly after this, NPO canceled its PIAT with GATO due to events surrounding the Six Million Dollar War.
During the Era of Isolation, the enmity between NPO and MK further expanded on November 25, when NPO expelled MK diplomats from the Order's forums and forcibly closed their embassy. These events further isolated NPO in the treaty web and contributed to the direct declaration of war on the New Pacific Order by Mushroom Kingdom, GOONS, Umbrella, Federation of Armed Nations and later Nordreich. This war occurred in concurrence with the large PB-NpO War and quickly grew to a global scale. It was during this time that Cortath stepped down as Emperor and was succeeded by Mary the Fantabulous. NPO's coalition capitulated on May 2 and the DH-NPO War came to an end after the completion of limited war on May 29, 2011.
The Dragon Era began after the four-month-long DH-NPO War ended. NPO's international relations were shaken up after the stagnant foreign affairs period during the Era of Isolation, with the signing of treaties with TLR and GATO. NPO further expanded its relations with TIO when their ODP was upgraded to an MDoAP. Following this, NPO decided it was in its best interest to drop its treaty with The Legion and downgrade to an ODoAP with Invicta. NPO's internal workings were consolidated for efficiency, with the Pacific Bank and Tech Corps merging into Economic Affairs, and Media Affairs merging into Internal Affairs. In November, the Grudge War erupted and NPO formally declared support for TOP and IRON to help protect its allies Valhalla and Olympus. Shortly thereafter, Fark and FAN declared war on NPO. This began the Fark-NPO War, a subconflict of the global war at hand, and from there the war quickly expanded. In December, NPO declared war on Sparta, the first NPO DoW since 2009. The war ended in victory for NPO and her allies on January 23, 2012, the first NPO victory in almost three years.
On February 4, 2012, Brehon succeeded Mary the Fantabulous to become the sixth emperor of the New Pacific Order, beginning the Era of Redemption. Immediately following his succession, Emperor Brehon appointed Bakamitai to the position of Imperial Regent and Mary the Fantabulous to the reestablished position of Counselor. On February 11, Bakamitai was honored with the distinction of Hero of the Order for aiding the Order in ways above and beyond the average member. When the NPO forums were at risk of being lost, Bakamitai stepped up and sacrificed both time and finances to ensure such a thing didn’t happen.
Emperor Brehon and the Imperial staff went forth and made swift work ensuring this time period lived up to its name; the Order had indeed redeemed herself in the eyes of ally and enemy alike by standing strong with support of her allies and ready with the willingness to forgive and forget past grievances. An ODAP was signed with Oceania on February 5, the ODP with The Last Remnants was upgraded to an MDoAP on March 3, and the PIAT with [Global Alliance and Treaty Organization] was upgraded to an oDoAP on April 23. On May 2, it was announced the NPO would be withdrawing from Red Dawn while continuing to cooperate regarding senate seats. Shortly afterward, the NPO signed both an oDoAP with Non Grata and an MDoAP with IRON on May 4. During the summer came a number of treaties. The NPO upgraded or signed a treaty with the following: Oceania, Anarchy Inc, GATO, and TORN [MnDoAP, MDoAP, MDoAP, and PIAT respectively].
On June 13, Emperor Brehon made a bold announcement expressing the Order’s concern over [Mushroom Kingdom]’s actions in recent conflicts and reinforced the intent to defend NPO’s allies. The NPO entered the global conflict that became known throughout the World of Bob as the Dave War on June 25 with an official DoW on Global Order of Darkness. On June 26, the NPO was countered by Viridian Entente at the request for help made by GOD. Pixels collided and battle was wrought until the NPO reached peace with VE on July 13 and with GOD on August 3 as the entire conflict wound down to a close, ending with a crushing defeat of the Order's enemies by Pacifica and her allies. While all these external events were taking place, Pacifica was by no means quiet internally. Keeping with its theme of constant evolution, there were a number of significant internal changes, both in department structure, and leadership positions.
