Iunctus was founded on November 18, 2008, shortly after the release of several Prisoners of War from the CIS-1V War. The POWs had stuck together through the POW sentence, sharing trades and doing tech deals amongst themselves while anxiously awaiting their release. Since a great bond had been formed through this three month period among said nations, it was only right that they formed an alliance together.
