DOC's mission was to promote direct-democracy within Cybernations. DOC acknowledged that dictatorships and semi-dictatorships were dominant within the game and also acknowledged that it was far easier to maintain an alliance with such a structures. However, DOC did not accept the opinion that a direct-democracy neither impossible nor automatically equaled "endless talking, no decisions and weakness". While DOC eventually perished due to inactivity, the principles of transparency and direct democracy were never a problem regarding the flexibility and capability to survive of the alliance.

DOC started with just one member and reached its current peak in August when about 50 members were part of the alliance. After that, DOC continued to lose members. When a large portion of the active members left in September, they created a void that could not be filled. Since new members did not participate within the alliance as needed, the remaining DOC-government decided to dissolve the alliance.
DOC was actively recruiting new members and open to everyone who's interested in participating in a direct democratic community.
DOC was a nuclear power with more than 50 nuclear warheads at its disposal. It's total strength was concentrated on the top 20 members and therefore not that dependend on numbers.
DOC maintained economic cooperation treaties with TFD and NEAT to benefit both sides.
DOC offered education- and mentoring courses. Also, senior members could advise new players on how the game and the alliance work.
DOC had an open culture of information sharing and member participation that we are proud of.
