|SSSW18 Motto: I'd Hit It...|
|Founder(s)||Xman08, LLAMAco, Joemoe15|
|Leader(s)||President - Jipps|
as of 12 January 2009
SSSW18 is a growing alliance within the White team that was officially formed on October 8, 2007. Initially, SSSW18 was accepted as a protectorate of Ragnarok. After some complications this bond was severed and SSSW18 entered into a protectorate agreement with The Phoenix Federation. Under their guidance, SSSW18 has grown quickly and has garnered respect within the Cybernations community.
SSSW18 is a friendly alliance, constantly proving itself to be a diplomatic powerhouse and formidable in times of war. During the June 2008 election cycle, Xman08 announced that he will no longer serve as President or as a player of Cybernations due to personal obligations. Lord Jay was elected and assumed the Presidency soon after. Under Lord Jay's leadership, the alliance nearly doubled it's size and combined with the UCA alliance to reach the 800K NS mark. During this time SSSW18 would sign an MDP with NPO and an ODP with =LOST=, adding to its growing reputation in the cybernations community. In late September/early October, SSSW18 would face it's largest war facing up against the STA in the War of the Coalition.
It was revealed on 12 October 2008 that Lord Jay had passed away a few days ago. With this sad news, Vice President Brandon Simonson assumed the role of President. Within a month of President Brandon's term, the Strategic Defense Initiative merged into SSSW18 and helped push it over the 1 mil NS milestone.
Following the January 2009 elections, President Brandon Simonson declared that SSSW18 was leaving the OPP, having grown to over one million NS. A treaty was signed with TPF. The election saw Neforatu become President. A constitution was also submitted, replacing the old charter.
In March 2009, elections once again rolled by SSSW18 and saw yet another new President, Jipps. Things were smooth at first, but in late April war was on the horizon. SSSW18 was pulled into the Karma War via her MDP with NPO signed the previous fall. SSSW18 fought against MOON, The Dark Templars, Blackhorse, and The Lone Star Federation. Despite these odds, SSSW18 fought valiantly next to her allies in Veritas Aequitas and GRAN. The odds proved too many and SSSW18 surrendered on April 30, with mandatory tech deal terms.

SSSW18 Senate: There will be 5 Senate positions available each election cycle. This number will periodically be changed to reflect the membership numbers of SSSW18. These nations are vital to the success of SSSW18 as a whole. They will have a secure forum utilized for closed-door discussions with the SSSW18 government and will serve in an advisory/ think tank role. They will be the voice of the general population of SSSW18 nations. They will also assist in the enforcement of SSSW18 policy and can be given tactical rank & control of a situation based on the decision of alliance government. 5. Other ministers can be declared by alliance government as needed. They do not serve in a position of authority outside of their duties. If you do not know what these positions do then you obviously should NOT run for office. Elections will be held every 2 months, election winner will be declared as the primary and can opt (where applicable) to appoint the runner up as their deputy (not required, may appoint another member in good standing but must be confirmed by Triumvirate Leadership). Section IV: War 1. Offensive Wars: SSSW18 recognizes the sovereignty of each of our member nations, and members may freely declare war on the following: a. Unaligned nations, that being said you do so at your own nation.s peril. SSSW18 is not required to provide assistance (military OR financial) in unauthorized conflicts. b. Any nation listed on the SSSW18 perma-ZI list. Moratoriums on offensive wars are sometimes necessary for war preparation, alliance growth efforts, or culling offensives wars that go against the alliance charter. The government may call for a temporary moratorium on all offensive wars. This decision is primarily the responsibility of the President. If the President is inactive or otherwise unavailable for 3 days, the Ministers may call for a moratorium on offensive wars if 75% of the Ministers agree. Members may NOT declare war on the following without PRIOR authorization from alliance leadership: a. Aligned nations belonging to ANY alliance.

All SSSW18 nations are free to attack unaligned nations involved in aggressive wars against SSSW18 nations. SSSW18 members are your brother and sisters and aggression against them should be punished. Section V: Nuclear First Strike Policy The government & members of SSSW18 realize that nuclear weapons are beneficial to the alliance and fully support nuclear development. We also realize that nuclear weapons are built for 2 reasons: 1. Deterrent 2. (In case #1 doesn't work) To cause maximum damage to enemy nations. In the event a nuclear first strike is deemed necessary, nuclear first strikes ARE authorized against rogues & unaligned nations. Nuclear first strikes REQUIRE approval by the President or Minister of Defense prior to launch against any aligned nations. Section VI: Charter Amendments Any nation belonging to SSSW18 is free to suggest updates, amendments, etc., to our charter.

Changes and new additions to the charter will require a 60% approval rate from the alliance in an election lasting no less than 48 hours. Section VII: Stuff NOT Covered Please use your common sense. If it seems like a bad idea, don.t do it or ask someone in government beforehand.
