Dear Citizens of the eWorld,
After weeks, or maybe even months of planing and preparing finally we can happily announce the founding of TWO.
We believe that the coming of this alliance to life was inevitable, since we are bound by long time of trust, friendship and bond that can not be broken. We have been together for a long time, and we should continue to be friends and allies in coming times! Our superb coordination, superior diplomacy and mutual support never stopped and this eventually lead to this article, this alliance and this WONDERFUL moment for all our citizens.
There is much to come, and the possibilities we have are near endless. But some things are sure: We'll always help those who respect and are friends with us and we'll fight those who despise us. We have common goals and interest with many countries in the eWorld and they can count on us.
We'll hold a general HQ elections in the next few days so expect us to be heard from again soon.
Also onto a less serious topic.
We have decided to start a competition among all Citizens of the Alliance for an official logo and graphical appearance. Send your designs to this organization and we'll be more than glad to send you the winning prize.
Below you can find the Alliance Treaty. It's long we know.
By signing this official treaty the respective democratically elected governments agree on the founding of an alliance with the norms and theorem specified below. We believe that these governments act according to their right democratically given by the people of their nations and so they are the vox populi. The laws below not only apply to the governments and the alliance staff but to the people of the member stations as well. These rules become effective immediately upon signing this document.
