The Army of One was a small Green sphere alliance founded on the 4 June 2011. They were formerly protected by the GOONS. It was disbanded after a brief war with Prototype, now known as Kashmir; many members later merged with Kashmir to serve as the War Jesus squad.
We, as the Army of One, are here to declare that we are a sovereign alliance, that no other nation or foreign power has an influence on how we run our government. This is written in order to declare or purpose here on planet bob. We reserve the right to conduct our government, trades, foreign aid, and the ability to declare war and peace.
Purpose and ReasonEdit
We, as an alliance, believe that everyone has a right to run your country the way they believe. This includes, government type, national religion, foreign aid, and trading. War is more complex idea.

The Chain of Command is as follows:
- Ruling Government
- Committee Chairmen
- Committee Members
- General Populous
Decisions made by the Committee members can be overruled by their corresponding Committee Chairmen. And the Committee Chairmen may be overruled by any majority of the Ruling Government (if there is no opposition, 1 Ruling Government Official can overrule)
Part D Nominations, Elections, and termsEdit
It takes 3 nominations for a member of the alliance to be eligible to run for a position and receive votes during the election. Nominations will last 36 hours and voting will occur in the proceeding 60 hours (unless a clear majority has voted for said candidate). At the end of the process the candidates with the most votes will win. If there is a tie in any position, it is by the will of the other newly elected and recently standing Ruling government officials to decide who takes the win in the election. All positions will be held for 3 months thus allowing elections to be held once every 3 months.
If for some reason a Ruling Government Official needs to step down, it is up to the will of that member to either
a) call an election for someone new to be voted in for the remainder of the term or
b ) appoint the next Official to rule for the remainder of the term with the approval of two other Ruling government officials.
If for some reason a government official is deemed incompetent for his position after accepting, Any member may motion for a vote in which 50% of the members must second the motion. It then requires 3/4 of the total membership of the alliance to approve and remove that person from office, in which case, that person is not allowed to be nominated or elected for any office for the following two elections terms.
Part E Granted powersEdit
The ruling government officials will have specific powers pertaining to their positions described throughout the charter.
Article 2 Declaration of War and Peace.Edit
It will take a majority of both the government and the members voting, to declare war and announce peace. While the decisions to declare peace and war rely on both the members voting and a majority of the Ruling Government, the terms of each will be based solely on the majority will of the Ruling government.
If we are attacked by another alliance with an official DoW, The alliance is considered to be in war and all members will be required to participate for a counter planned out by the War lord. The alliance will be in war for a minimum of the duration of the initial wars and peace will be decided as decided above.
Article 3 Nasty Ghoul Policy.Edit
It is up to the combined efforts of the War lord and the Head of Internal affairs to coordinate efforts and announce the presence of ghosts, rogues and other unorganized threats against the alliance. Rogues may be attacked on sight with coordination efforts. On the other hand, a warning message must be given to all ghosts, and if the warning message is ignored, then they are free game to attack.
For unorganized attacks on Army of One by a nation from another alliance, before any mass counterstrike is organized it is the responsibility of the Chiefs of Foreign Affairs to contact the other alliance and straighten out the dispute diplomatically. If no diplomatic solution can be reached, it is then up to the War lord with the will of the alliance to organize attacks against the aggressor.
Article 4 Raid PolicyEdit
The Raid Policy it to be written up by the Raid Commander and approved by majority vote of membership and the majority of the Ruling Government. The Current policy is as follows:
