The New Polar Order is a front-runner alliance residing on the Blue team. As an alliance, Polar has been involved in every major world conflict from the beginning of the Cyberverse with the exception of the recent Dave War. The New Polar Order was established in May 2006 by NPO Emperor Ivan Moldavi, to provide stability to the Blue team and was NPO's counter to the National Alliance of Arctic Countries following the Second Polar War.
The Order, or Polaris as it is also known, currently stands as the 10th most powerful alliance in the Cyberverse and is the blue team's main military and economic force.
Charter of the New Polar Order Edit
We, the undersigned nations, agree to promote national sovereignty, defend our fellow nations against outside aggression and advance the Polar way of life to the world.
Article I: Admission Edit
Any nation pledging an oath to the New Polar Order [NpO] on the New Polar Order offsite forum requesting membership will be admitted, provided said nation does not belong to any other alliances, except possibly due to an Imperial dispensation, and does not present a security risk to the NpO. The oath shall consist of the following:
- The name of the nation
- The name of the nation’s leader
- The team in which the nation resides
- The user name on the Cybernations Forum
Further, once a nation is a member of the New Polar Order they are forbidden to join any other alliance in the game under threat of expulsion by The Polar Council.
Article II: The Body Republic Edit
All member nations of the New Polar Order will automatically have a seat in the Body Republic and will be corporately responsible for electing nations to the Polar Council.
Article III: The Polar Council Edit
The Council of the New Polar Order will consist of eight Polar nations. Four of these nations will be appointed by the Emperor. They shall be appointed for life, until resignation, or until removal by the Emperor. These appointments will be subject to approval by a vote of the Body Republic. A consensus of 50% + 1 of the voting Body will be required for each appointed Councilor.
Each of the four appointed Councilors will take on a role as the leader of one of the New Polar Order departments: a. Foreign Affairs (Ministry of Truth) b. Military Affairs (Ministry of Peace) c. Economic Affairs (Ministry of Plenty) d. Internal Affairs (Ministry of Love)
The Council will also seat four Councilors who are elected once a month by the Body Republic. Nations that have been members longer than two weeks can be nominated within the Body Republic beginning one week before the election date. At the end of the nomination period a public vote will take place in a manner determined by the Polar Council on the offsite forum lasting for 48 hours. The top four vote recipients will be named to the Council.
Each of these Councilors will take on a role as Deputy of one of the aforementioned New Polar Order Departments.
The four appointed Councilors have emergency powers to eject any member from the order, below the rank of Councilor, on matters of alliance security. The councilor must post the expulsion in the Body Republic and present evidence. The expulsion may be overturned within forty-eight hours by two appointed councilors or anytime by the Regent or the Emperor.
Article IV: The Emperor Edit
- Main article: Emperor of the New Polar Order
1. The Emperor Edit
The Emperor is the leader of the alliance. The Emperor will chair the Polar Council, maintain veto power over its decisions and have the ability to block the election of specific individuals to the Council if he or she sees fit to do so. The Emperor has emergency powers to eject any person he/she deems is a threat to alliance security. Should the decision be disputed, a vote of the Council may be requested, whereby a two-thirds majority of the Council's vote will overturn the Emperor's decision after consideration of evidence presented by the Emperor and the complaintant. The Emperor serves for life or until resignation or removal.
2. Imperial Officers Edit
The Emperor is empowered to appoint an Imperial Regent to conduct affairs in his/her absence and an Imperial Liaison to represent his/her interests on the Council and in the Body Republic.
3. Imperial Staff Edit
The Emperor may appoint to or dismiss from his Imperial Staff. This body will be comprised of Polar nations who, while not considered a member of government, or given any inherent power, will draw both a mandate for action and some limited authority based on the personal discretion of the Emperor. Following the retirement of the Emperor, all of the members of the Imperial Staff will automatically be retired unless the incoming Emperor specifically requests their continued service.
4. Polar Archivist Edit
5. Imperial Succession Edit
Upon making the decision to retire, the Emperor will choose a member of Polar in good standing to accede to the throne as the new Emperor. The former Emperor will then take up the mantle of an Imperator Emeritus.
If the Imperial Regent believes the Emperor is no longer able to perform the duties required of the throne by the charter, the Regent may convene a meeting of the Regent, the Imperial Liaison and as many Imperator Emeriti and sitting Councillors as possible. At this meeting the Imperial Regent must put forth a motion to remove the Emperor. Should a super-majority, defined as 75% + 1 of the total possible attendees, support the Regent's motion, then the Emperor is to be considered removed. Should the motion succeed, an Imperator Emeritus nominated by the Regent and confirmed by a simple majority of the active Polar Council, shall assume the throne. Should the motion fail, the Regent, Liaison and entire Polar Council will automatically offer their resignation to the Emperor, regardless of their individual vote on the motion. If the Regent is inactive, defined as ten days inactive on the offsite forum, the Imperial Liaison will be empowered to act in the Regent's stead.
6. Imperator Emeriti Edit
An Imperator Emeritus is a retired Emperor. An Imperator Emeritus will have a lifetime membership and will serve as an advisor to the Emperor, his officers and the Polar Council.
Should the presence of an Imperator Emeritus represent a direct and dire threat to the interests of the Order the Emperor may make a motion within Council to suspend their membership. Should a simple majority, defined as 50%+1, of Council agree, the Imperator Emeritus will have their membership suspended. Once the threat of the Imperator Emeritus's presence has passed, the Emperor may unilaterally lift the suspension.
Article V: Expulsion from the Order Edit
Any nation can submit a motion to expel a fellow member from the Order to the Polar Council. The Polar Council will review the case and may dismiss it if it is deemed to be frivolous or not made in the interests of the New Polar Order. The accused nation will be given 24 hours to respond to the accusations. The Polar Council may extend the time for response, investigation, and deliberation if it so wishes; afterwards a simple aye or nay poll will be made in which all members may vote on expelling the accused. In order for the motion to carry 75% + 1 of the member nations must vote in favor of the expulsion. There will be a time limit of 24 hours on expulsion votes. If the percentage is not reached before the time limit the motion fails. The Emperor cannot be expelled from the Order. Likewise, the Emperor can pardon any nation from expulsion.
Article VI: Amendments to the Charter Edit
Any nation can submit a motion to amend the Charter to the Body Republic floor. Article IV and V are not open for amendment without the expressed consent of the Emperor. Discussion will take place for a period of no less than 8 hours but no more than 36 hours. If a supermajority (defined herein as 75% + 1) of the member nations voice support for the amendment before the 36 hour time limit is reached then the motion will be considered passed and carried. If it does not reach the supermajority before the 36 hour limit the motion will fail
The New Polar Order was formed by the Emperor of the New Pacific Order (NPO), Ivan Moldavi, in order to create stability in the Blue team following the Second Arctic War between the NPO and the National Alliance of Arctic Countries (NAAC). Ivan Moldavi also became the first Emperor of the NpO. Many were outraged by this action, seeing it as an attempt by the NPO to obtain control of the Blue team. This has also been seen by many as proof of imperialism by the NPO. Even though the NpO has been declared a separate alliance, with a separate Emperor, a few individuals considered the NpO a part of the NPO. By 2007 all alliances, however, recognized the NpO as a sovereign alliance and the topic is no longer seen as an issue.
Tygaland was named the first Emperor of the NpO after its independence, and served as Emperor until the later part of the Great War, which was started with a nuke fired by Tygaland after offensive things were submitted on the international forums by an ex-member of LUE, and actions by members of said alliance in their private discussion area. His resignation was asked for by Legion and the ODN, along with an apology by both Tygaland and Ivan Moldavi, for said alliances to leave the war. While many disliked the apology by Tygaland, the alliances accepted. As he stepped down from the position of Emperor, he named Electron Sponge as his successor. The Great War ended not much later, leaving both Orders heavily damaged. Both the Orders have since recovered and surpassed their pre-GW power.
During Electron Sponge's reign as Emperor of the NpO, he lead the New Polar Order through countless wars and victories. Among the wars fought were the OWNed War, the Maroon War, Great War II, the war against Stand or Die, Great War III, NpO-CIN War, FAN-WUT War, and the Unjust War. Electron Sponge built the NpO into one of the strongest alliances in Cyber Nations. After the war with the Unjust Path, Electron Sponge stepped down, naming his successor, Assington.
In late May, Comrade Assington stepped down as Emperor and appointed Electron Sponge back to the throne.
In late June and early July, the NpO was removed from One Vision, fought with BLEU against GUN, declared war on an alliance called FIST, and had a dispute with NPO, now known as the Pacifica-Polaris Dispute, which after much drama and server crashes resulted in the many treaty cancellations, the cancellation of the OoO, and imminent war. After Electron Sponge became unreachable on the Fourth of July, he was replaced by the Minister of Peace AlmightyGrub as the new Emperor of the NpO, after acting-Emperor RandomInterrupt gave power to Tygaland and Tygaland gave power to AlmightyGrub. Most of the world seemed to support AlmightyGrub on the throne, while a small minority felt that it was a coup, and the threat of war seemingly dwindled. The new Emperor demanded his people show their angry neighbors on Bob respect and tried his best to repair the broken relations. In August, the Second Great Patriotic War broke out and the NpO was attacked by several Continuum alliances.
Peace was concluded between the Coalition and the New Polar Order in the beginning of September 2008, after just over three weeks of conflict. The terms were from a pecuniary stand point the most severe terms ever imposed on an alliance following a war. The Polar Order was to pay 100,000 tech to the Coalition alliances, among many other stipulations, among which the top 40 nations of the New Polar Order were forbidden to send any intra-alliance aid in this time, and the 20-30 nations that spent the entire war in peace mode would be required to pay 75,000 of the 100,000 tech demanded. The Grämlins alone offered to pay for their tech, at the rate of the $3,000,000 per every 150 technology.
The New Polar Order would regain its sanctioned alliance status while still under peace terms in a miraculous three and a half months after peace terms were issued, passing the Grand Global Alliance in the Sanction Race. The New Polar Order is one of the fastest growing alliances and has recovered faster than any alliance in the history of Planet Bob after such a devastating war.
