(Potential Superpower, pending. The quasi-USSR + French Revolution + American Revolution of the RP)
The Union of the Third World
The Federation of Revolutionary Republic's
The World Revolution
N/A (Referred to ether as national Demonym's or unofficial S.O.N demonym's such as "Supra")
Supranational Revolutionary-Transitional Government, Supranational Confederation forming into a Federation. (Direct Democracy/Supranational Union)
A mixture of mostly unitary and federal republic's, "Benevolent" dictatorships(The benevolence in a number of these nations is extremely debatable) and oligarchical transitional governments. A few of the member-states of S.O.N are in civil war, so said nations have a government unrecognized by the S.O.N.
The result of a leftist world revolution sparked by the gradual collapsing of numerous old monarchies and instigated by a number of revolutionary figures, the S.O.N was formed 10-15 years ago, founded after the revolutionaries won their war, creating the S.O.N from the ashes of numerous small third world nations, colonies and utterly broken empires/kingdoms ether caught in the Great War on both sides or their own independent conflicts against themselves or colonial masters.(This is assuming the Great War happened 20 years ago as it did in the last M.A.D NRP, otherwise S.O.N was formed anywhere from during the Great War or a few years later if it is sooner than 20 years))
The S.O.N is said to be the weakest of the three Superpowers(Assuming its status as a Superpower... Or even its existence is accepted)
, economically it is far weaker than the other two and it is even still industrializing (Many of its member-states can hardly even be considered modern). Militarily, its armed forces is comprised of low-quality outdated junk in large numbers and imported military hardware from foreign nations. The S.O.N is recognized as a superpower due to its vast political scope and ability to mobilize large quantities of assets, being a union of many nations (Even if they are third world nations).
The S.O.N is an entity formed by fanatical extremists and currently run by those same fanatical extremists, seeking to bring justice,equality and peace to the world... By any means necessary.
Domestic Political Conflicts:
Amongst the S.O.N's numerous civil wars and continued warfare against fascists,imperialists and former government loyalists, the S.O.N is plagued with countless internal issues and infighting. Ignoring the infighting of the average man(Food riots,religious intolerance,racial hatred,etc) the internal political conflicts of S.O.N are mostly due to the vague political leaning of the World Revolution and the S.O.N itself besides "Egalitarian". Republicans(As in, those who wish to form a Democracy/Republic, not the American political party)
,Democratic Socialists, Socialist/Communists, Anarchists(And all its branches), and those who argue for a more 'enlightened' government (Such "Benevolent Dictatorship" or even Technocracy) constantly are at odds with each other within the S.O.N's own government.
Interventionism(Expansionism) vs Isolationism: The S.O.N is divided between those who would continue the World Revolution using the S.O.N as another military arm of the World Revolution to extend the World Revolution to all nations of the globe (As of now, the Committee of Revolutionary Armed Forces acts as the military arm of the World Revolution, while the International Liberation Army acts as the S.O.N's defensive military force) and those who believe that the World Revolution has achieved its political goals and now the energy and manpower of such a large effort must be redirected towards uplifting the nations within S.O.N to first world status.
History of the Great War:
S.O.N itself did not exist during the Great War, however the former governments of the nations that now make up S.O.N were ether quick to take sides or declare their neutrality. The majority of the nations of S.O.N were on the side of the aggressors, the crumbling and defunct empires and dictatorships convinced that their last and only means to reclaiming their lost power and glory was to join in the conquest of as many nations as possible. In contrast, the former colonies (Still colonies during this time) sided with the defenders, obliged to defend their colonial masters. During the war, the Imperial Nations (The Empires of Osralsia and Aentraslia particularly) that joined the war on the aggressors side assisted in the conquest of target nations mostly with the use of massed waves of conscripts, these collapsing defunct empires making up for their lack of hardware and supplies with sheer numbers. (Note: Its possible the Pre-S.O.N nations on the aggressors side assisted in the invasion and occupation of the Gaul Republic)
By the half-way point of the Great War, the aggressor-aligned nations had already entered Total War and even further transformed their empires into autocratic police states. This is the time in which the World Revolution begun, instigated by the death of a single man (Predictably, he became a revolutionary martyr). Like a raging firestorm, the World Revolution spread quickly and with great ferocity. The aggressors lost much of their support as the collapsing empires that fought with them pulled out in the wake of being engulfed in civil war and mass rebellion. This "World Revolution" preached of the end of slavery(Which was still legal in these nations), the end of discrimination(Which was universal) and justice (Against the aristocracy and rulers of these empires). The revolution continued to spread and gain strength, armies begun deserting to join this new cause, civilians arming themselves to march against their kings, 'great leaders' and emperors. Though the aggressors were the first to be hit by the World Revolution, the defenders felt the effects of this revolution but only a few years later, quite a number of colonies declaring independence from their colonial homelands. (Note: I am implying the Gaul Republic here. These colonies would have broken away from Gaul likely during the Great Wars height and during/after the invasion of Gaul)
In the final years of the Great War, the empires that once supported the aggressors were on the losing side of a vicious trans-national civil war, the trans-continental rebel forces now even large and powerful enough to directly assist the defenders in waging war with the aggressors (Oddly, at the same time they were also fighting the defenders in the colonies that had declared independence). The three largest rebel armies that now hold three seats on the seven seat council of the Committee of Revolutionary Armed Forces (The Army of the World Revolution, the Global Liberation Front and the Egalitarian People's Army) officially declared war on the aggressor powers and sent aid to liberate conquered defender nations and directly assault the aggressor nations (One of those defender nations could have been Gaul, though the superpower that saved it was more likely the United States of Lexia). Before the C.R.A.F could begin their invasion of the aggressor powers in earnest however, the defender powers unleashed their prototype nuclear weapon on them, and the war was brought to an end... At least between the aggressor and the defender powers. The C.R.A.F continued the war for another 2-3 years in isolated area's, colonies struggling still to become independent and far flung third world nations, this "Aftermath War" ending with the formation of the S.O.N.
Historical Relationships With Other Nations:
WIP, will have to talk with people...
~Suggested Historical Relations:
@Gunther: As stated above, more than likely many of the former colonies that declared independence from their homelands and then joined S.O.N were probably from the Republic of Gaul. the Revolutionary Leader, Consul-Marshal and First President of the Supranational Order of Nations is a Napoleon Bonaparte-esque character that I plan to be Frankish(Gaul Republic) of birth (Of course, Napoleon wasn't actually French, but I think it would be fun connoting all the same) and perhaps even a former Frankish military officer in the colonies who rebelled. If you would accept, I could work with you to create a sophisticated and lengthy joint history. During the Great War, the Pre-S.O.N World Revolution would have been both allied and hostile to the Republic, fighting them in the colonies but later on they directly came to the aid of occupied Gaul(In the attempt to liberate it). Prior to the World Revolution, the Pre-S.O.N nations that were not colonies probably hated the Republics guts.
@Edwardian: The United States of Lexia and the Supranational Order of Nations probably have a love-hate relationship in past and present, one moment working together for the "Greater Good/Freedom/Justice/"insert self-righteous term here" the next waging a cold war against each other. (Assuming that the other superpower besides Lexia and S.O.N will be an imperialist/fascist/aggressive empire and leader of the aggressors/Side-Y, S.O.N and Lexia I assume would enact "Enemy of my enemy is my friend"). In the Great War, during the last moments of the war before the bombs dropped, the USL and Pre-S.O.N World Revolution probably teamed up against the aggressors when they went on the offensive. Also (If Gunther accepts the idea), Lexia and the Pre-S.O.N World Revolution would have been in occupied Gaul, trying to liberate it.
@Arxia(Also the Aggressor Powers/Vanquished/etc): The S.O.N is probably an enemy of your empire due to your invasion of third world nations and imperialism. This implies to the other empires,imperialists and aggressor powers of the Great War.
@SovereignGrave: I plan to have the S.O.N to have a few obviously middle-eastern themed nations and to have religious conflicts within S.O.N common. Would you mind if I had your religion extended beyond your nation and make it pan-regional?
