History Edit

CDT and Early HistoryEdit

On June 14, 2007 CMEA joined the CDT or the Common Defense Treaty, a bloc created by NATO. This bloc would prove to be very valuable to CMEA in the growth of the alliance. CMEA quickly made new friends and learned the ways of the Cybernations world and used the Common Defense Treaty as a way to continue to grow and prosper.

On August 7, 2007, the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance merged with Empyrea, a purple team alliance, and formed the Council for Militaristic and Economic Assistance. CMEA continued to prosper and grow under the leadership of Hawkenstein, Coldflame, and ebill.

Things quickly began to change. Within a month after Empyrea merged are CMEA, CMEA's NS reached an all time high of 622k NS. However, the Cybernations world was quickly turned from a time of stability into open warfare. CMEA backed up their protector GOONS and declared war on FCO on September 13, 2007. Within 2 weeks, the war had turned in favor of ~ and CMEA surrendered to the combined forces of FCO, The Shadowhood and GAT-ITEC.While paying Reps to Echelon the combined alliance formed with the merger of The Shadowhood and GAT-ITEC our leaders came into conflict with Echelon creating the Echelon-CMEA War. Within days our leaders gained peace and friendship with Echelon. Ever since that war, CMEA has been re-building with many new friends in treaties such as OUT, LEO and a protectorate agreement with Echelon. Now CMEA stands strong at over 700K Nation strength.
