It's initial incarnation (WFF 1.0) was founded on 12/03/07 by Nord Belka and disbanded shortly after. WFF (2.0) was founded on May 8, 2009, sometime between May and August 2012 it merged into Death Before Dishonor.
A Brief HistoryEdit
The WFF Prototype: 2007
After finding many large alliances to be ineffective for the individual nation, Nord Belka founded The World Freedom Federation. Based upon the principals of catering to every nations needs, and freedom for each citizen.
In its initial peak, The WFF had only seven fully active members, yet had been at war with the Osirian Compact—one that came unprovoked. Unfortunately two months later, communications were lost, and the alliance was left dormant.
WFF 2.0: 2009-2012
For a year and a half The WFF had rested only to be awakened hours after Soldier disbanded. Nord, having dusted off his old Federation garb and medals, urged fellow Soldiers to follow. Promising them the ideals held by the original incarnation of The WFF, a small group of Soldier nations set forth. So with the help of Chazz, Poliz, Merdesa and NotYou; Nord had found himself leading The World Freedom Federation yet again.
Still holding the beliefs he once had and that The WFF stood for, they set out recovering lost Soldier members and spreading the ideas of freedom, loyalty, and camaraderie. At it's peak, the WFF had 50-60 nations and a total NS over one million. WFF 2.0 also took part in a close partnership with DB4D and VA in the Victory Not Vengeance Bloc, the first and only block the WFF participated in. Shortly after the Grudge War, the WFF fell into inactivity and remaining nations joined DB4D in the late spring of 2012. The WFF forums were placed in mothball status that summer, to be re-activated sometime later when CN needed heroes again.
One year AnniversaryEdit
After two major wars and much growth, the World Freedom Federation (2.0) celebrated on May 15th, 2010.
Articles of the Federation IIIEdit
The World Freedom Federation (WFF) is Ace Combat/Starship Troopers/Battlestar Galactica/Firefly themed. This makes an interesting combination of military and also sci-fi within the alliance. Every Citizen has the ability to advance up the ranks, you can get out of the WFF exactly what you put in.
"There is an old song which asserts that "the best things in life are free". Not true! Utterly false! This was the tragic fallacy which brought on the decadence and collapse of the democracies of the twentieth century; those noble experiments failed because the people had been led to believe that they could simply vote for whatever they wanted… and get it, without toil, without sweat, without tears. … I fancy that the poet who wrote that song meant to imply that the best things in life must be purchased other than with money — which is true — just as the literal meaning of his words is false. The best things in life are beyond money; their price is agony and sweat and devotion . . . and the price demanded for the most precious of all things in life is life itself — ultimate cost for perfect value."
We recognize that unregulated Democracy is mob rule. We also recognize that totalitarianism is almost always started at the ballot box. Therefore, the WFF is based on the ideas of a Libertarian Meritocracy. With higher ranks having higher responsibility, all incoming government members are expected to have a background of merit, civic virtue and be of outstanding personal character. The core values of honor, courage and service are instilled into every citizen.
Article I: CitizenshipEdit
Section I: What is a Citizen?
Every member that has passed through the applicant phase is a citizen. The Citizen rank is the first earned, and the only one that will stay as long as you are an “active” member. Every Citizen has the duty to vote in Citizen votes and Referendums. Remember that service guarantees Citizenship!
Section II: Earning Citizenship

Punishment for not following these orders can be very severe and are handled on a case by case basis by the Skymarshal or the DoJ.
Section II: War Time Policy
It is to be a standard practice of the Skymarshal and WFF government to make an official Declaration of War, for all eyes to see, before engaging another alliance in large scale conflicts.
A first strike nuclear policy may be enacted to secure the defense of the alliance and allies. Non-nuclear engagements are open to discussion via diplomatic channels in certain situations that demand said course of action.

If a Citizen leaves the AA under any circumstance during a time of war, that Citizen will be stripped of any rank earned and considered AWOL.

Proposals must be drafted by Government and then be proposed for a aye or nay vote of the Citizens, with the results being in the favor of Citizens majority.
Section VI: Treaties and Citizen Rule
The World Freedom Federation is not a neutral alliance, and we always welcome diplomacy. Sometimes, we find that special someone and want to get even closer. The Foreign Affairs Secretary is responsible for opening the door to all matters pertaining to potential and current treaties, regardless of their nature. All treaties must be approved by the Skymarshal and at least one of the Deputy Skymarshals before presentation to the Citizens for voting. The treaty will stand before the Citizens for 48 hours unless an extension is approved. An extension shall not exceed 24 hours. Upon the conclusion of this 24 hour period, the votes will be counted and a result presented to the Skymarshal. All treaty approvals require a simple majority approval from the Citizens and the signatures of: The Skymarshal, Two Deputy Skymarshals, Foreign Affairs Secretary and The Citizens of the WFF.
The World Freedom Federation always welcomes diplomatic relations with all alliances on Bob, whether it be business or pleasure.
The World Freedom Federation will be the first to help their allies. No matter the odds, no matter their size, they all bleed the same.
Only alliances who hold a treaty with WFF are allowed to tech deal with WFF unless grandfathered in before the agreement (you know who are you) or unless a special agreement is reached. All other alliances found tech dealing with WFF will be asked to finish the ongoing deal (we will not rob you of your tech/cash) and then immediately cease and desist tech dealing with WFF until such as time as a treaty is signed or an agreement is reached. Contact the Economics Secretary if you have any questions pertaining to this policy.
