as of 9th June 2010
Liberation Army (LA) is a small but growing alliance on the Aqua sphere. It was officially founded on 9 June 2010, although work began on the alliance on 15 April 2010.
History of Liberation ArmyEdit
The Liberation Army began as an idea back in early 2009, an idea that stemmed from some of the similarities between the game series Suikoden and Cybernations. The recruitment, team work, battles and the building of a strong alliance where each person contributes in their own way were some of the foundations of which this alliance would be built.
On 15 April 2010, Mayzie was given temporary protection by 1 Touch Football so that he could begin officially working on Liberation Army. Liberation Army HQ (forums) was created and over the next two months as more things were put into place, members began to join.
Declaration of ExistanceEdit
On 9 June 2010, Liberation Army, now with seven members, Mayzie, Jiros (Uisge Beatha), sonofabc, CrazySonOfA, AsaCavanagh, Ivan III and Sydie officially declared it's existence along with its first treaty. (DoE: http://forums.cybernations.net/index.php?showtopic=87238 )
A protectorate treaty with Kronos would serve as a good starting point for LA, while it built up its membership numbers, nuclear arsenal and developed relations with other alliances.
Despite all of the founding members other than the alliance leader, Mayzie leaving the alliance or CN altogether, on 23 October, Liberation Army reached the 500,000 total nation strength milestone. Things were coming along nicely, tech deals flowing, membership numbers on the increase and aid programs working well. Changes to the charter were made to allow for more flexibility in government and the electoral procedures were scrapped as they were proving unnecessary with the alliance having a fairly small number of members.
With the disbandment of Liberation Army's former protectors Kronos, LA's friends in Colossus took up the temporary protection of the alliance until something more permanent could be sorted.
Liberation Army Charter Edit
Article 1: PreambleEdit
We, the kingdoms of the Liberation Army (LA) do ratify this document in order to outline the goals, the rights and responsibilities of our members, the structure of our alliance and to guide us in our quest to accomplish those goals.

We shall master magics, both ancient and modern, in our quest; we shall seek allies among great nations to help us secure our ends.
Article 2: Admission & ExpulsionEdit
