If you've ever been confused staring at the map wondering why we're not attacking a key region, or wondering what an MPP is or how attacking works, this article is for you. I'll carefully break down wars and peace, as well as what the superalliances are and what their place in the world is.
"War" is a state that two nations are in after a natural enemy declaration. Congress or the President can propose to start a war this way, and it requires a 66% confirmation from Congress to put it into action. When the country is at war, it will automatically invade a territory of their natural enemy every 6 hours (unless another battle is already underway).
A state of war between two nations can only be ended in two ways: a peace treaty, when both nations agree to stop via a mutual law passing, or wiping, where one country completely removes their opponent from the map. More on that in just a bit. A war's ending simply means the two countries can no longer invade each other.
Alliances + Battle Types
Alliances, also called MPPs (short for mutual protection pact), are agreements between two nations to defend each other. Both country's congresses approve them at the same time, and once accepted, the countries will be able to fight for each other from their home regions. MPPs cost 10,000 in each side's currency to sign.
MPPs are the lifeblood of any war machine. As soon as any invasion in a war occurs, all of those countries can fight in that battle and any subsequent battles. A country that doesn't have a lot of MPPs will quickly lose most battles they start.
Alliances are not active in resistance wars, which is explained in the next couple sections.
They say no man is an island, in the New World, this is true for countries...even island countries. The world is split into three alliances: Terra, EDEN, and NWO. Terra is the alliance we are in, and NWO is our enemy. EDEN is neutral-ish, but tend to lean in Terra's direction.
Below are maps and memberlists for the three alliances. You can click the maps to see them at double size.
Members: Argentina, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Russia, United Kingdom, and USA
EDEN (eRepublik Defense and Economy Network)
Members: Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Croatia, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Romania, Sweden, and Ukraine
NWO (New World Order)
Members: FYROM, Hungary, Iran, Poland, Serbia, and Spain
Attacking + Wiping
There are some simple rules to what can be attacked and what can't. For a country to attack a region, it must share a border somewhere in it's country. Borders can be seen at the bottom of a region's page, which can be found from a country's Society tab. This doesn't have to be a visible land border. As an example, look at the International Port State of Hawaii, which shares a border with Japan.
Battles also can't be initiated if the region is already under attack by another country or by a resistance.
Alliances are only functional in a normal battle, which is initiated by a President.
Alternatively, if a resistance war is started (which can be initiated by anyone in a conquered territory, it cannot be done in a home territory; i.e. someone can do a RW in Norte, but not North Carolina), then no alliances will be active on both sides, and the battle can only be fought in the occupying country's regions.
Wiping a country means to conquer all of it's regions, removing it from the map entirely. When this happens, all of that country's wars and alliances are wiped clean, and the country can only earn independence again through resistance wars. No elections can take place while a country is wiped, because it technically has no citizens.
