Bellumque Pax (BQP) was a Brown team alliance that was founded by former members of the Alliance of International Defense(-AiD-). The name, Bellumque Pax, is Latin for "War and Peace". Their Goal is to make an alliance that grows to even greater heights than the alliance it broke off of. BQP has a Protectorate, under the New Order of Independence, an alliance whom former -AiD- member and part founder of BQP, Ares, once belonged to.
On December 27, 2007, Bellumque Pax successfully separated from the Alliance of International Defense and began their days as a separate sovereign alliance.
As of 01/03/08
We, the free nations of Bellumque Pax, do resolve to unite to preserve our freedom from those who would seek to oppress, dominate and enslave us.
TO THOSE ENDS we form this Charter to bind and protect us, to organize us into a union of like-minded people, and to provide order for our new society.
