The MK-UBD War, or the Eight Minute War,[1] was a military conflict between Mushroom Kingdom and the United Blue Directorate, who was accused of spying on MK. Due to the small size of many of the UBD nations the Mushroom Kingdom later requested for the Federation of Buccaneers, one of their protectorates, to assist them in the war. Ironically, FoB was a merger of two alliances, one of whom was =WE=, with whom the United Blue Directorate had once shared an MDP with in the past. In their announcement the Mushroom Kingdom stated they would follow the example set forth by the New Sith Order in the NSO-CDC War and only engage the United Blue Directorate in a short, punitive engagement as well as a single term ZI for three members of the UBD (Slybomber, mdnss69, and Bahman) for their actions.

The name Eight Minute War was recommended by Arrnea, following a comment by lebubu that "[the war] was fun for a grand total of 8 minutes.' Mushroom Kingdom later made claims that one of its members, Joker (registered on the CyberNations Forums as Matthew George) claimed to have made the post suggesting that the war be called the 'Eight Minute War'. Joker disputes these claims. The war lasted a total of 3 days and ended in white peace


After three days of fighting, White Peace was concluded between the two sides. However, the nations of slybomber of Miken, nickh93 (Bahman) of Landofree, and mdnss69 of Ratheniska, as well as any UBD nation that went nuclear without provocation were sentenced to a single ZI by MK, after which they would be permitted to go free. After 3 days of fighting, mdnss69 sold all his infra, and used his remaining warchest to buy back all lost infra. Slybomber and Bahman followed suit. Also announced was a package of aid for each UBD nation that had their nukes spied away by MK without provocation. According to the UBD, this money was never paid.
