The FAN-1V (One Vision) War, sometimes called VietFAN II by some in reference to the FAN-WUT War, was an occupation-like conflict which started in December, 2007 and concluded in May, 2009. It was initially fought between the forces of One Vision and the Federation of Armed Nations, and began when the New Pacific Order claimed that FAN violated the surrender terms to which both sides had agreed at the end of the FAN-WUT War. In response to the breaking of surrender terms, the Order rescinded the cease-fire from that conflict and re-declared war, along with One Vision and other supporting MADP allies.
The FAN-1V portion of the conflict raged for a year and a half, eclipsing other guerrilla-style wars such as the GOONland Resistance Movement and the Holy War of Farkistan as longest single conflict in cyberverse history. It eventually wound down and concluded during the Karma War, as FAN negotiated white peace settlements with each of its opponents as they became embroiled in the larger, more destructive global conflict.
Perceived mistreatment of FAN by NPO among many in the cyberverse was one of the contributing factors that led to increasing anti-NPO sentiment that itself led to the Karma War.

NPO claimed that 1/3 of FAN nations were found to be in violation of surrender terms from the FAN-WUT War by virtue of having militaries constituting larger than 20% of their national population. Approximately 100 FAN nations were accused, although FAN and others claimed that only a small handful of FAN nations had breached the terms enforced upon them, and many of them were only slightly over the soldier limit.
While two of the non-One Vision/Continuum members were involved in the war it was stated that the Continuum's Mobius Accords were not activated and the alliances that entered (TPF and Valhalla) joined the war through their respective MADP's with NPO. TORN entered the war citing their MADP with TPF, in addition to MDoAP's with the NPO, IRON, and Valhalla.
Casus Belli ControversyEdit
- See also: FAN-WUT War Peace Terms
Vociferous objections and refutations arose from FAN and other players about the accuracy, validity, and justification of both NPO's stated casus belli and the facts presented in support of it. Arguments flared in the forum, ranging from possible differences in interpretation or actual meaning of the treaty terms to accusations of total fabrication and intentional misrepresentation. Sentiments between FAN and the Orders by then had become so deeply hostile and bitter that both parties at least partially resorted to flaming and thinly veiled trolling in the forum discussions, leading to repeated thread locks. New threads would appear shortly thereafter. Members of the Orders and their allies chastised FAN for whining and accused them of hypocrisy. FAN leadership accused Order posters of intentionally trolling and derailing threads, to provoke moderators into locking the threads and prevent further discussion when opinion was perceived to have begun to turn against the Order, or when hard questions were raised about the justification and validity of the Orders actions.
- 8 Nations possessed Factories
- 2 Nations possessed either Tanks, Aircraft, or Cruise Missiles.
- 8 Nations had troop levels above 20% of their Citizen Population
In total 18 different nations were named as violators of the peace terms, with 97 violations.
FAN government has identified that several nations on the list—the exact number is unknown—were not registered FAN members nor did they have accounts on the FAN forums. There was also internal suspicion based on several factors that some of the nations were plants to create evidence, although official statements to such effect were never ultimately made.
It is important to note that the Surrender Terms states only that Factory improvements had to be removed, not military improvements of all types, although some NPO members (none of which were leaders or representatives) initially used such claims as support for the war.
It can also be claimed that under term 1 (...FAN will only keep enough soldiers to keep their population happy...) that happy is a state without red warning text for too many or too few soldiers. By this definition no FAN nations were in breach of that particular term.
Golden Sabres InvolvementEdit
- Main article: Golden Sabres War
After the discovery that the Golden Sabres, a yellow alliance and former offshoot of FAN, was directly assisting FAN in attaining the yellow senate seats, which they in turn used to sanction members of the alliances against them, many alliances declared war on GS.
Name of the ConflictEdit
The official New Pacific Order designation for the conflict is the InFANtile War while the official FAN designation is VietFAN II. These (and variants thereof, such as "Second VietFAN War") and "NPO-FAN War" have been used. "NPO-FAN War, Part II" has been debated for possible inaccuracy, as the argument of whether the current conflict is a continuation or a successor is still active. Internally, many FAN members referred to the conflict at various points in time as "AfghaniFAN", "The NPOgrom", "FANocide" or "Deja Moo".

- ↑ The nation of Nakota, had been created 14 days before the screenshot shown by Baikunin was taken. 2 days later it sent aid to the FAN nation Ranma while flying FAN AA and the FAN flag; further aid went from Ranma to Beerstonia, both legitimate FAN members. Nakota then remained inactive for the next twelve days, and remained so at the time the screenshot posted by Baikunin's Dream was taken. As of the NPO's redeclaration, it was flying no AA. The nation of Nakota is currently (as of 1/11/08) in a two member alliance on the Red team, and the other nation--Pale Force--attacked a nation flying FAN colors with reason for war stated as "The New NPO". (screenshots coming imminently)
