This is the last article from Erepublik Defence and Economy Network. There is no more one final battle, no one final challenge. All stories must come to an end, and the time for EDEN has long since come.
EDEN was founded in the aftermath of ATLANTIS collapsing, during summer of 2009 when PEACE invaded North America. EDEN formed to fight against the PEACE incursion. Its ideals were to defend member countries and to fight with valour and dignity. Founding members were the nations of Croatia, Finland, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain and Sweden. Later on countries such as Greece and Bosnia & Herzegovina joined the Brotherhood.
During its past, EDEN gained and lost members. With each new joining and each new departure, EDEN changed. It evolved as the world changed - some may say even too much, for the alliance was barely recognisable at times when compared to its ideals. EDEN during its last year was very different from EDEN during its first year.
We achieved great victories. The world history is filled with campaigns where EDEN marched forward. Even in times of defeat EDEN was still the one everyone looked up to. For years we marched on. Look what happened to our opponents:
One after another they formed, fought, resisted and eventually, collapsed. This is the testimony of EDEN - the oldest alliance of eRepublik history. Everyone came and went, but EDEN stayed. Maybe it stayed for too long, since now it is only a shadow of its former self; an echo from the past. Only the name is the same for an alliance that outlived everyone else.
What describes EDEN perhaps the best is an old poem from the 19th century by Lord Tennyson:
“We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”
Indeed, EDEN has been made weak by time and fate. We do not possess the strength of the old days nor the will, but the alliance lingers on. It has become time to stop.
There are now none of the founding members left in EDEN. Countries left are leaving one by one to join other alliances or to try something new. Channels have been dead for months. This isn’t the alliance it was and calling it EDEN is blasphemy to its history. Maybe the countries left as members form an alliance, but do not call that EDEN. That it is not.
Stop spitting on EDEN’s grave. We ask rest of the in-game alliance country congresses to vote for leaving EDEN so it may finally be let in the ground. Be fair and let it die with honour.
Farewell. It is time for new trees to grow.

The last of EDEN.
