Military Alliances (e.g. Nato, Warsaw Pact etc.)

Posted by kingfries on 26 October 2016 in English (English)

Hey Guys, how are you all?

So with user ,William' having introduced his idea of an EU, European Economic Alliance style project, I thought: What place would an organisation like Nato have in our OGF-World. Historically Wars mostly got the way the got because of nations being allied to each other, having been prominent in WW1 and 2, and especially the Cold War. So was just thinking what impact would large organisations like these have had and still have on OGF-World or wouldnt a cold war type of scenario have been as present in this world? Just Stuff for thought guys. Happy Mapping

As you've already mentioned, these things would be tightly connected to the history of the last, say, 100 years. I think we should figure out and decide on the globally relevant wars of the last century first, before then thinking about what type of modern alliances could have formed from there.

I agree with Leowezy. Alliances like NATO and the Warsaw Pact were created due to ideological and political friction between two superpowers. There is little written about 20th century world history and no superpowers in the OGF world. Indeed making a realistic and detailed history takes a lot of close collaboration between everyone involved, which is something difficult to manage on here.

Commonia was a massive before the 1950s but we have been advised to not write anything about it due to some 'status change' in the future that no one seems to know anything about. Ingerland almost certainly was because it created a global colonial empire. I'm not sure about any other country, and it has been theorised that we could turn UL099 or some other large and untaken region and turn that into a superpower, but nothing has come into fruition.
