About FIST Edit
FIST is an autocratic alliance with democratic oversight. It's members are bounded together by common goals, friendship and mutual defence. It is a non-aggressive alliance, with the "diplomacy before war" ideology. However, should FIST's allies be in need of help, FIST shall spare nothing to come to their defence; diplomatically, financially and if necessary - militarily.
FIST pledges to do what is right in Planet Bob, to support others against unprovoked aggression and other alliances with a similar ideology to FIST in any way possible, and will always do it's best to conduct itself in an honourable and selfless fashion.
In addition, since moving to the black team sphere, FIST seeks peace and close relations to all black team alliances, and is in constant pursuit of black team unity. Our goals in our team sphere are to recruit as many nations as possible to the team, in order to expand the trading possibilities for all nations in black, and to protect unaligned black nations against aggressors as best it can.
Lastly, to avoid any problems, our motto is a comical one, and should not be taken seriously.
Constitution of FIST Edit
- Main article: FIST Constitution
How FIST is different from others and what FIST offers Edit
One of the reasons Starcraftmazter has persisted with FIST is to make it significantly different from most other alliances. Starcraftmazter cares about the little things in an alliance more than anyone else, and it's the little things which he strives to perfect.
One of the major factors of FIST is the high level of organisation. This organisation refers to the forums, the military, the ministries - as well as record keeping. We strive to be more organised than any other alliance, and to lay everything out clearly.
One example are our foreign embassies, and most of these things are quite small - but added together, they create an awesome effect, and dictate our high efficiency.
The progress of our organisation is ongoing, as we constantly re-do things we feel could be done more efficiently.
One of the things coming in the near future, is a centralised MySQL driven system of record keeping for all members, which will allow foreign diplomats to check for ghosts very easily, allow us to find ghosts easily, keep track of the aid nations get, of their military, government and foreign assignments, create in-alliance trade circles and much more.
Initiatives & Programs Edit
FIST has a number of CN veterans in it, and we know what works and what doesn't. Within each of the ministries, we do out best to implement many programs and initiatives, to benefit our members, our alliance and our allies. We have notable research & development schemes to make sure we are up to date with the latest and best tactics of playing Cybernations, and we are always looking to how we can do something better in the future.
Military Experience Edit
Our leaders have significant military experience, and strive to organise the military in the best and most effective way possible. We know the successes and mistakes of many alliances in all the previous wars, and we know what works and what doesn't.
Although the same could be said for most major alliances, there are many for which it cannot, and this is a merit of our alliance we wish to strongly emphasise.
Forums & Domain Edit
About 95% of alliances use inferior Invision software, both v1.3 (InvisionFree, ipbfree, etc.), and some use the slightly better - but still bad - Invision Power Board (v2.x).
We here at FIST prefer to use the best, the fastest, the most fully-featured, the highest quality and the most secure forum software in the world - phhpBB3. This allows us to set up our forums in much more organised ways than practically every other alliance, especially the foreign embassies.
And if we are not mistaken, FIST is the only (and/or the first) alliance to ever use a .cn domain name. Nothing significant - but it is cool.
Our Leaders Wub You Edit

History of FIST Edit
For a detailed history of FIST, see the Main Article on it.
In the beginning... (3rd Oct - End of Nov) Edit
FIST was founded on the 3rd of October by Macktruck, Mooney, Starcraftmazter and The Red Cmorad. They all worked to establish FIST as an alliance, and an MDP with IPA was signed  swiftly. After completing the constitution Starcraftmazter decided that it was a failure, and intended to end his affiliation with FIST. Due to the fact that he did a lot of the work, the prospect of a merger with IPA came up. Starcraftmazter however, thought that most members would prefer to remain independent and together, so he decided to reform FIST to an autocracy with democratic oversight, and let people go to IPA if they wanted.
At this time, there were 28 members, 10 left - some went to other alliances, a few started their own alliance (Pyrate Rebel Engine) and The Red Cmorad joined IPA after initially offering to help with PRE. All the people involved remain good friends.
After the reformation, FIST spent some time building up, and Starcraftmazter after doing an infra jump, sent aid to the strongest nations so they could help with future aiding. Foreign relations with many other alliances were set up, and a PIAT was signed with CPCN .
Onwards (End of Nov - 2008) Edit
After everything was in place, recruiting began, and FIST started to grow at a quick pace, with the membership multiplying by several times.
The members of FIST were also asked to vote on a flag and a domain name, and Starcraftmazter created several articles in the CN wiki about FIST, to make the alliance more complete.
After quite a bit of recruiting, several high infra FIST nations switched teams, and commenced to re-arrange trades. Quite a bit of internal discussions and treaty planning, specifically related to the Black Peace Initiative took place. The FIST membership grew in NS.
New Year (2008-April) Edit
On the 16th of January, an MDoAP with Viridian Entente was announced .
By the end of January, FIST has almost doubled it's members, grew by 84K NS and edged towards an alliance score of 2.
In February, a further 103k NS were gained, with two former FIST members rejoining around that time. A PIAT with TCB was also signed .
On the 24th of March, a PIAT between MK and FIST was signed .
April Fools (April-Present) Edit
A PIAT with CIS was signed .
FIST announced a major milestone, achieving over 500,000 Total Nation Strength .
The government of FIST had a major reshuffle . Experienced and active ministers were kept with some role changes, and many new government officials arose, from active and contributing alliance members.
May Day (May-Present) Edit
On May 11, a PIAT was signed between FIST and Manticore, to further their relations.
SCM was generally not very active, due to university studies. In fact all FIST leaders attend university and are busy little beavers. Nevertheless, many changes took place, many military reforms and re-organisations. Activity overall was raised, and countless improvements were made.
The Shadow Confederacy joined the Black Peace Initiative . FIST has been a friend of the TSC since day one, and we were very pleased with their membership.
In early June, the average strength of FIST surpassed 10,000 even though two prominent high-ranking members left, to pursue lives outside FIST. Nevertheless, shortly after, a former member and a founder of FIST - Mooney returned, and much buttsecks was had.
With the overall strength of FIST increasing significantly, FIST could no longer sustain selling tech to other alliances, and hence all tech sellers were informed they would no longer be able to buy tech from FIST.
The Dark June and Political strives Edit
In June, while everything was going normally, something unexpected happened which brought FIST back by 2–3 months. Starcraftmazter, playing on #GR channel, changed his nick to AlmightyGrub's, NpO's minister of Peace. Shortly after that, Myworld talked to Starcraftmazter, and he apologized.
However, the next day, Electron Sponge, NpO Emperor, declared war on FIST with the reason "Impersonation of NpO government by FIST leader". On the CN Forums FIST was initially trolled, Starcraftmazter posted a thread regarding that FIST will not request help from their allies in BPI, IPA or VE and they wish to solve the problem diplomatically. This post was trolled by NpO in first replies, but after that, a ton of trolling and criticism started against NpO. Starcraftmazter then resigned, passing the leadership of FIST to Snakebite. The war continued however, and VE tried very hard to get peace for FIST. FIST stood strong against the NpO aggression as well as attacks from three BLEU alliances. On the third day of the war, VE canceled their MADP with NpO. This was the start of mass treaty cancellations against NpO.
After the 5th day of war with NpO, FIST was given white peace.
FIST is rebuilding now with the help of its allies, especially SE, Darkfall, IPA and VE.
Our MDoAP with VE was downgraded to a ODOAP, because our government had changed a lot, and the Viridian and FISTer government whom signed this treaty were most gone. But this was a good change, since this was a start for re-expandment of relations. A tech dealing plan was introduced to increase the strength of higher nations and give lower nations a chance to win money and grow so fast with a lot of tech deals. Also, Mooney's nation was deleted due to unknown reasons.
