"Invicta" is a Latin word meaning "undefeated," and in this lies our motto. A motto spoken not in bravado or arrogance, but in determination and fearlessness in the face of adversity. As an alliance of nations we aim...
...to practice tolerance and work for the good of all members within the alliance.
...to unite under the principle "the whole is greater than the sum of it's parts."
...to live in peace, using force only when necessary for the common good.
We believe that you are only defeated when you give up.
