The UCWR was founded on 6/3/15 by quiver12345 with help from NuclearWinter and Lord Mittens IV. This was the third and final attempt that quiver12345 has made to start an alliance. The first two being the International Union of Nations (IUN) and later on the United Coalition of Independent Nations (UCIN).
The Constitution has been ratified on June 6, 2013 having met the requirements listed out in Article VII
The UCWR Civil War and Article VIIIEdit
In the ratification of The Articles of Confederation there was an eighth article to be known only along the members of the Executive Branch and in war time the Senator of Defense. Article VIII was entitled "Coalition of the Confederacy" which was put into place as the UCWR disbanded. It entailed, what nations of the UCWR should do in case the government could no longer function properly. To be enacted by Executive Order by the President.
Nations still loyal were directed to join a new alliance affiliation named "Coalition of the Confederacy" and in theory they were to re-form and re-organize to counter-strike the alliance(s) that caused Article VIII to be put into action. As well as to fight against any nation which abandoned the UCWR during the war.
The UCWR was targeted by a series of rogue attacks believed to have been orchestrated by a large alliance to circumvent the protectorate treaty with the NPL. When the anarchy rate hit 90% and several lower level members including the Senator of Recruitment left to join other alliances to rebuild, it was decided by President Quiver12345 to enact Article VIII.
The Coalition of the Confederacy was formed by Quiver12345 and joined by NuclearWinter as well as the Senator of Economics, the Senator of Education.
Senator-Premier Lord Mittens IV believed because the UCWR faced no clear and present threat because they were orchestrated rogue attacks which no one knew where they originated from that Article VIII should not be enacted but instead the UCWR should be permanently disbanded. With him went the Senator of Defense and the Senator of Internal Affairs.
Quiver12345, NuclearWinter, and approximately 50% of the original members enacting their constitutional duties declared war on the abandoning members.
A surrender declaration was signed by the ranking members of the abandonees nearly two weeks after the initiation of Article VIII.
The Coalition of the Confederacy now having no real threat as the Civil War ended and the rogue attacks came to a slow end. It was a unanimous decision for the nations of the coalition to disband and to go their separate ways.
