The Green Protection Agency (GPA) is a sanctioned green team alliance. It is very well known for being neutral in all its affairs. The three main values of the GPA are neutrality, sovereignty, and protection of its members. Its members are commonly known as GPAers. The GPA is governed by its charter, constitution and declaration of neutrality. The GPA Hall of Fame recognizes members who have contributed significantly to the GPA.

FoundingEdit

See also: Continuum-GPA War

Note: Much of GPA history outside of its founding and the Continuum-GPA War has been lost to time, resulting in incomplete historical records. Recently, there has been mild interest to restore the GPA's missing historical records, though this has not yet gained enough traction for any substantial effort.

Green was one of the original colors at the beginning of Cybernations. Unlike the other color spheres, however, Green had no official alliance.

The Green Protection Agency was founded on February 14, 2006 after the first inter-alliance war (INC vs. GATO, see GATO-INC War). This war had a profound influence on the new GPA. GATO at that time was viewed as an expansionist alliance, and it was the fear of their expansion into the green trading sphere that caused the formation of the Green Protection Agency.

After the GATO-INC War, the fledgling GPA had to make a choice: either it could be very involved in international politics, or it could remain by itself without external influence. Some of the GPA's earliest members had been involved in the first war, and did not want to get into another one. This prompting drafting of the GPA Charter's now-famous Neutrality Clause. The Green Protection Agency has remained neutral in every inter-alliance war to date.

Charter of the Green Protection AgencyEdit

The current Charter of the Green Protection Agency was updated and Ratified June 1, 2008. It defines the principles and purpose of the GPA, structure of the government and the powers of each area of the government. The Charter also defines legislation, membership, and foreign relations policy.

Declaration of NeutralityEdit

Main article: Green Protection Agency Declaration of Neutrality

The GPA Declaration of Neutrality was passed unanimously by the GPA Security Council and has thus far been accepted by many Tier 1, Tier 2 and 3 alliances, and supersedes the previous GPA Proclamation of Neutrality. The Green Protection Agency is still actively seeking signatories. See its current signatories here.

The Declaration of Neutrality itself is effectually a blanket Non-Aggression Treaty that legally binds all GPA members from initiating hostilities with any other alliance. The Green Protection Agency welcomes all alliances wishing to sign the treaty.

Culture - Democracy and DiversityEdit

The GPA has a very democratic and egalitarian culture that transcends its political leadership structure. While government officials do have the legal right to implement policies pertaining to their individual portfolios, almost every alliance process is open to viewing and debate by the GPA membership. Despite being generally non-opinionated in Planet Bob's politics due to the GPA's neutrality, GPAers are very vocal and diverse in their opinions internally with regards to alliance policy and its application to different situations. Debates tend to be very long, and in some occasions carrying on for months.

The GPA prides itself on its economic prowess and being a home to players who prefer nation building and community over the war aspect of the game. The GPA also has a very tight-knit, friendly community - including some members who venture into other games together and know each other in real life. The GPA forums is currently home to a unique roleplay game which simulates the evolution of civilizations in an alternate historical world.
