The Global Republic of Armed Nations is a military based alliance, a brotherhood of nations who remain dedicated to the growth of each individual member nation, and preserving their right to bare arms for the sole purpose of ensuring their freedom, prosperity, and national sovereignty. Although GRAN does not believe in going to war for unjust reasons, the legacy of GRAN has always been that of a “war monger” alliance, who value friendship and allegiance, and are therefore willing to stand beside their allies at all costs, and if need be, die beside them.
GRAN strongly believes in the importance of stockpiling nuclear weapons for the defense of the alliance, and has an extensive nuclear weapons development program in which its loyal members are qualified to take part. GRAN strongly defends its right to tech raid non allied nations, as both a means of profit, and military training in order to keep its soldiers sharp, and ready for any fight that may present itself.
GRAN highly values diplomacy, and desires any and all situations to be handled in a diplomatic manner, unless such matters can not be resolved, and/or the opposing party begins hostilities. Once one has become a hostile enemy of GRAN, may GOD have mercy on their souls, for GRAN shall have none!
The Global Republic of Armed Nations is not, by any means, a new alliance, but has been the subject of ridicule and contempt on several occasions in the recent past, often being vilified for standing their ground, and refusing to fold to outside pressure when it’s actions are just. Acknowledging the fact that there are alliances in planet bob that hold a grudge due to their failure to intimidate them, and that the masses, who seem to be incapable of independent thought, will most likely jump on the anti-GRAN bandwagon the moment one of these alliances decide to throw a tantrum, GRAN remains ready to jump to the call of duty, and defend it’s members at all costs, with every last point of infrastructure.
On September 20 of 2007, the Global Republic of Allied Nations was formed. The founders of GRAN worked day and night, with the assistance of Steinfeld, actively recruiting nations into the alliance, and eventually reached it’s first goal of 50 members. Upon reaching this goal, GRAN become a protectorate of the Phoenix Federation, as part of the Overlord Protection Pact, and under the TPF, they thrived and prospered. During this period in time, GRAN shared many accomplishments, and numerous victories in battle fighting along side the forces of TPF. By their valor, discipline, spirit, and determination, as well as their fierce combat capabilities, GRAN became noticed on planet bob, and had earned a great deal of respect from the TPF, and other alliances that knew and fought along side them. According to some, GRAN was known as one of the most respectable smaller alliances in Cybernations.
One of the darker moments in GRAN history came on the day that 2/3rds of the Government voted in favor of merging with The White Delegation, to form a new alliance known as the Auric Armada. Official Announcement Thread. The AU became strong, and grew rapidly, but eventually 2 of the 3 leaders (founders of GRAN), Alaric and outworld, ended up having to deal with various RL issues, which resulted in them deleting their nations.
Two months later, the former founders of GRAN arrived back in planet bob to find the alliance they had loved so much, partly merged, and ultimately destroyed with members scattered all over the place. Aryan83, The military director of AU, and who had also directed the military of GRAN previous to the creation of Auric Armada, had left the AU himself in search of greener pastures, strongly believing certain elements of the AU government had become corrupt in the absence of Alaric and Outworld. After the much consideration of loyal members from the former GRAN, it was decided that a new alliance was to be formed, a great alliance, an alliance that shows true promise to be among the most elite in planet bob, the REVIVAL of GRAN! On September 7, 2008 that idea was put into action. With the help of former friends and allies in the Defense Confederation, a protectorate treaty was created, and the GRAN alliance, under the new name, GLOBAL REPUBLIC OF ARMED NATIONS, was re-born! During the noble beginnings of the re-birth, GRAN attempted to stabilize itself first on the yellow team, then on 11-12-08 GRAN, made the decision of settling on the black team, where it eventually become a member of Dark Vows.
On Saturday October 5, 2008 the Global Republic of Armed Nations succeeded in developing their first nuclear warhead, and officially became a nuclear alliance. Aryan83, one of the GRAN founders, successfully purchased the Manhattan Project, realize the goal of GRAN to work diligently to stockpile nuclear weapons. Not long afterwards, a few more nuclear nations joined up with GRAN, and eventually the APP (nuclear program) was introduced, allowing a great number of nations to become nuclear, adding to the increasing number of stockpiled missiles. Not long after that, GRAN received its first top 5% nation, a loyal member of the now defunct AU by the name of Lord Bubba, who resigned from The Defense Confederation to take up arms with GRAN. GRAN, sense then, has went back to the yellow team, and remains determined on increasing the quality of the yellow team, bringing it out of shambles. On June 12, 2009, Emperor Outworld, the long time reigning Emperor of GRAN, addressed his loyal subject about his decision to step down as Emperor, and pass the torch on to Alaric, the second Emperor of the Global Republic of Armed Nations. Upon Alaric taking the seat as Emperor, the long time loyal member, and fellow founder of the GRAN re-birth, Aryan83, accepted the position of Imperial Regent. Under the command of Emperor Alaric, GRAN intended to flourish in this new era of leadership.
Under the leadership of Emperor Alaric, great plans were made for the future, as GRAN continued on as a strong alliance and military force. This continued success however begun to unravel as Emperor Alaric, finding himself once again dealing with RL issues, became inactive, prompting similar inactivity in other parts of the alliance. A campaign was soon launched by The Imperial Regent in an attempt to spark a resurgence in activity and strengthen the ranks, but it was soon announced to government officials that plans were underway to form a new alliance out of the majority of GRAN leadership, as per the will of the Emperor. Following the announcement, and after a long discussion was made, Imperial Regent Aryan83 resigned from his seat, and from the alliance, to eventually form Death Before Dishonor. Days later, final elections were held in GRAN, as Smallz and Battalion squared off for the title of Emperor, resulting in Battalion finding himself in the Emperor seat. Almost instantly after, Smallz left GRAN along with former Emperor Alaric, and formed the Tombstone alliance.
Very little was heard from GRAN in the following weeks during the reign of Battalion, as the members began leaving the alliance, and the total nation strength and means for self defensive continued to decrease. Finally, on December 6, 2009, Emperor Battalion posted an address to the world announcing that GRAN has disbanded. Official Announcement Thread.
Former members can still be found today, speaking of the divine legacy that once was GRAN, and often reminisce about the "good old days".
The official CN name for the alliance is "Global Republic of Armed Nations", but is also known as "GRAN". The name was chosen based on the principles the alliances lives by, and the means they go about living by them. GRAN is to remain armed and vigilant at all times, for whatever situation may occur.

Details about The Karma War
Not long after the NPO declared war on Ordo Verde, and the Karma war had officially begun, GRAN honored the treaty with their allies of the VA, and marched into war along side them, against the Majestic Order of Orange Nations (MOON). After a day of heavy fighting, a declaration of war was made on GRAN by Genesis and ARES, in support of MOON. The days of fighting that ensued were bloody and costly for all sides, yet GRAN single handedly continued to fight diligently and bravely despite being out numbered, and managed to inflict heavy casualties on their enemies, and hold off the attacking alliances, until VA withdrew from the war. Being that GRAN served its purpose in the war, thus seeing no reason to continue, peace agreements were made, resulting in a withdrew under White Peace. This was considered an overall victory by GRAN members, if not by the world at large, because they accomplished what they set out to do, which was to honor their friendship by supporting their allies, and exited the war without surrender or defeat.
The caterkiller campaign- The cause of the war was due to spy operations and infiltrations into GRAN ranks and sabotage of GRAN forums. The alliance Guardians of the rabid cater killers were routed and forced to disband. VICTORY
The NDAA war- After a member of the NDAA alliance named Frodi disrespected the GRAN leadership by altering GRAN's embassy, banned the ambassadors without warning, and when no actions were taken by the NDAA, GRAN declared war and engaged the NDAA in the battlefield. After a swift, and ruthless execution of a midnight blitz, the NDAA scattered and disbanded. VICTORY
Thelist campaign- When a member of the allaince called thelist failed to uphold their part in a tech deal that was perfomred by GRAN and tried to scam GRAN for more money the emperor of GRAN issued an ultimatum to return the tech that was owed with all penalties that were justified or else. This member was given 20 days to comply with the ultimatum. When on the 20th day the tech had not been returned a squad was assembled to attack this thief. The leader of thelist known as dankin ordered his allaince to retaliate against GRAN after some initial success the banks were opened and GRAN turned the tide of War quickly anahilating thelist and bringing to zero infrastruture all of its members.
The Digital Horizon Conflict- The Digital Horizons Campaign officially started after the GRAN Government received a distress call from their protectorates, informing them that a nation from a small terrorist alliance known as Digital Horizons had attacked and seriously damaged one of their nations, and refused to offer peace. A meeting was held among GRAN Government officials, where it was decided that GRAN would deploy it’s military in order to neutralize the hostilities against their protectorates, with the rules of engagement being that Digital Horizon’s sovereignty would be respected, therefore only the offending nation would be attacked. GRAN quickly deployed their military to the region, immediately declaring war on the offending nation, however within the first 2 days of fighting, another nation from the Digital Horizons alliance declared war on a GRAN nation in retaliation for GRAN’s involvement in the conflict. GRAN responded swiftly by deploying more of its military into the region, now targeting both hostile DH nations, yet continued to leave the rest of the Digital Horizons in peace. A few days later, GRAN intelligence uncovered a spy ring within the alliance, and after a full investigation, the spies were traced back to 4 Digital Horizons nations, as well as a GRAN deserter who had joined forces with Digital Horizons at the start of the conflict. As the spy attempts continued, leaders of the Digital Horizons begun sending messages to GRAN nations persuading them to leave the alliance, and continuously vandalized the GRAN wikki, among other tactics, and it was soon obvious that this was a guerilla war waged against the GRAN alliance, by the Digital Horizon terrorist Nations. This was soon confirmed by a DH nation who decided to become an informant for GRAN in exchange for mercy. Concerned for the safety of GRAN citizens, the Emperor ordered a full assault against the entire Digital Horizons alliance. After days of bloody and aggressive battles, the forces of the Digital Horizons was depleted, and ultimately destroyed.
Involvement In the BAPS War Campaign
The Global Republic of Armed Nations, as part of the Overlord Protectorate Pact, declared war on the alliance of BAPS, for the threatening of the Phoenix Federation's allies. In a midnight blitz, GRAN put out more war declarations than any other alliance involved in the war, earning its place in history. This was GRAN's moment to shine, and its soldiers fought with bravery, discipline, and honor which won the day. BAPS surrendered after that to the coalition led by Valhalla and TPF, and even though still a relatively small alliance, our military achievements were recognized by all involved, friends and foes.
Involment in the OPP/TWD war
The war officially started right after the Global Republic of Allied Nations merged with The White Delegation to form Auric Armada. Once the merge had occurred one of the ex-leaders of TWD decided to back out of the arrangement even though must of the alliance had merged to form Au, upon hearing of this Gran[au] decided to ask them to disband and form a new alliance with a new name or conflict will ensue after the leader of TWD antagonized Gran[au] and dared us to attack him conflict followed that very same night the OPP council was convened and all pledged their support for Gran[au] three alliances in OPP declared war that same night Gran[au], Defcon, and VA. The war lasted for 48 hours after which the leader of TWD capitulated and the alliance disbanded their members spread to several alliances in planet bob.
Involvement In the Epilogue War
The Global republic of Armed Nations[Au] entered the GATO-1V War after TPF declared it's support for One Vision. As a defensive maneuver, TPF attacked, and so followed GRAN[AU], due to an MADP treaty signed between the 2 alliances. As a result, GRAN ended up as a rather unknown force in the war, fighting IAA nations.
Involvement In the Continuum-NoV War
GRAN[AU] officially announced it's involvement in the Continuum-NoV war the day after the Continuum declared on NoV, with the declaration of war on FCO for their attack on TPF, as GRAN[AU] declared it's support for TPF the day before. Soon after, Legio X declared on Defense Confederation, yet another MADP partner, GRAN[AU] shortly after declared on Legio X in defense of its ally. A few hours later, the declaration of war on Freaksafari.com for supporting Legio X was announced, placing the GRAN[Au] in 3 wars.
