This alliance has disbanded as of December 2008.

The Catholic Alliance is a coalition of nations dedicated to the promotion and defense of Catholic ideals among the world's governments, protection of its member nations from unwarranted hostilities, and forging of strong economic and social bonds between its member nations.

HistoryEdit

The Republic of Nova Capitalia established the Catholic Alliance on March 24, 2008. Nova Capitalia has served as Alliance President since the alliance's inception.

On May 4, 2008, the Catholic Alliance approved the IRA-CA Mutual Defense Pact with the Irish Republican Army. This agreement remained in effect until the disbanding of the IRA on July 15, 2008.

The Knights of Christ bloc admitted the Catholic Alliance as a member on June 19, 2008. The alliance approved membership in the bloc on June 21, 2008. On July 20, 2008, following the de facto dissolution of the bloc, the Catholic Alliance President invoked executive authority and endorsed the CCC-CA Mutual Defense Pact with the Christian Coalition of Countries. The pact was defeated in the CCC High Council amidst a scandal involving an official who aided in the negotiation and drafting of the pact and abuse of office. With the beginning of the War of the Coalition in August 2008, the alliance delayed all formal diplomatic negotiations with other alliances and pursued a policy of neutrality.

Charter and GovernanceEdit

The Catholic Alliance is guided by the following charter:


Charter of the Catholic Alliance

We, the nations of the Catholic Alliance, in the interests of promoting and defending Catholic ideals among the world's governments, protecting member nations from unwarranted hostilities, and forging strong economic and social ties among our member nations, do hereby agree to the following laws and principles:

III - The Catholic Alliance shall not, at this time, require its member nations to belong to any one team of nations.
