|Coalition of Independent Nations|
|Triumvirate of CoIN:||
CoIN is an Brown team alliance announced on . It was formed from the members of the disbanded NFL.
Quinpin and Slicer845695 of the old Blue alliance, the New Freedom League, decided to disband the New Freedom League and with the support of the majority of the government departed to form the Coalition of Independent Nations.
CoIN quickly grew to an alliance of roughly 40 members and signed a few openings treaties with Camelot (now Athens) and Aquitaine. However, with the beginning of the War of the First Coalition, Aquitaine requested cancellation of their ODP with CoIN while CoIN had decided to remain neutral during the conflict.
After a period of some lack of focus, Quinpin departed as our first Lord to UCN and the charter of CoIN was revised right after Slicer845695 took over as lord and changed the government to become a triumvirate government. Further to this reorganization, Slicer845695, sulli90, and jerry wagner ascended to become the first Triumvirate of CoIN.
On October 4, 2008 following a major argument over the filling of the General post within CoIN, Jonofin departed and attacked 2 CoIN members including former member and MoIA Crazyguy945. He quickly nuked two CoIN members as well. By this point in time, CoIN defense forces surged into place and quickly subdued the rogue nation. Further to our PIAT w/OTF alliance, we began to receive aid and will forever owe OTF a debt of gratitude.
December was a month of external affairs triumphs with CoIN upgrading their ODP w/Athens to a MDP and on December 20, 2008 CoIN was officially added to The Nexus Agreement, a brown MDoAP bloc.
