Ideals[edit | edit source]
Transparency- BTO members should know what their government is doing and why. BTO government asks for feedback before making decisions, and also offers it rational for decisions. Logs that involve decision making are often shown to BTO members as well. This all allows BTO members to invest in their alliance, and learn more about how an alliance works, preparing members for future leadership. The BTO is likewise transparent with its allies.
New Player Friendly- The BTO aggressively recruits new members and is a place where new members are welcomed, and encouraged. The alliance is patient with new members and allows them to make mistakes.
Meritocracy- Government positions are not democratically elected in the BTO. Instead they are earned based on expertise, experience and activity. Those that are the best for the job, get it, and those who work hard find success.
History[edit | edit source]
Big Top Order (BTO) was founded on April 5, 2009 as a splinter alliance of the League of Small Superpowers (LoSS) by 3 LoSS members. Originally a protectorate of LoSS, they had some philosophical disputes and mutually parted ways. BTO then signed a new protectorate treaty with Veritas Aequitas on June 9, 2009.
On December 5 it was announced that DWtheGreat was leaving BTO, and succeeding him were co-ringmasters King Joeseph, and SuperCoolYellow. The charter was scraped and the current government is a diarchy with all authority flowing from the Ringmasters.
