|This alliance has disbanded. (Note: See: The Unjust War)|
The Formation of SPAM Edit
In July of 2007, several former members of the Order of the Dark Knights, including an original founder, left in order to form a new alliance. These members were The Lord Marshall, Blkt72, TrunkSp4ce, Captain Insane-O, and Spoonanator. The goal of this alliance was to promote fun, and lessen the seriousness that had begun to grow across cybernations. They wished not to become a part of the growing degree of personal politics that seemed to become quite apparent near the end of the summer. The result, was an alliance known as SPAM.
Over the next few weeks, a few more former members of the Order of the Dark Knights, as well as newcomers joined SPAM. The result was a doubling in the size of the relatively small alliance. Quickly, they accumulated near 250,000K total Nation Strength. This, was in part, due to their charter restricting recruiting. SPAM's average strength was not allowed to fall below 15k NS. By mid-august SPAM had gained four more members, bringing their total numbers to 14 nations, but trouble was on the horizon.
