ISSF is an Orange Team Alliance. ISSF stands for International States of Solidarity and Freedom. The alliance was founded by ShawnNL on December 24, 2007. After being involved in other alliances and alliance politics, ShawnNL decided to try his hand at creating an alliance from scratch. With an idea in mind he ventured forth and founded the ISSF.
The ISSF began recruitment immediately and in a very short time had exploded it's member count from 1 to 140 members. During this first initial recruiting drive many newcomers to the game were welcomed into the ISSF. Being a small alliance, with budding new players the learning curve was a little steep. With persistence, ShawnNL continued to attempt to make his alliance come to life.
A few weeks after, ShawnNL appointed bk as the de facto leader due to some personal circumstances. bk, being a newcomer to CN himself with a Government consisting of all new players would embark on a journey that none of them could imagine. Together they had to learn the ins and outs of the game: Diplomacy, Economics, Political Structure just to name a few. Kudos to all that came before them and did it on their own, it hasn't been an easy task by any means. But, with help from ISSF's pals in FOK, they were able to learn comfortably and grow safely underneath the watchful eye of Mother FOKker.
Since our beginning at 70,000NS, we have made some progress in these few months.
As you can see ISSF is doing quite well and is well within reaching 1,000,000NS within the coming weeks. This is cause for much jubilation and excitement, as we all patiently await the fruits of our labour to ripen.

Internal AffairsEditInternal Affairs are handled by the Secretary of State, Lord Monkey, and the various sub departments under his command. They deal with the day to day operations, adherence to the charter, recruitment, training, and internal security.
The ISSF maintained a new existence as an alliance for nearly three months without any official charter. After debate, government changes, and real-life time constraints, the government set forth to create their charter. On March 3, 2008, it was officially adopted and made effective. On July 21, 2008 after the resignation of ShawnNL, the charter was updated to revision 1.1.
