Also known as the LUE-NPO War or the Great Patriotic War by members of NPO and NpO

Great War I was a war fought in the summer of 2006 between the New Pacific Order and the New Polar Order against the CoaLUEtion. It ended in defeat for the Orders although NPO maintains that it ended in white peace with only a personal apology from the NPO Emperor Ivan Moldavi.

This page is insanely outdated at parts....

On the 15th of July 2006 a major war between LUE and NPO was declared. A number of alliances were involved and Global Radiation levels were at the highest point in history due to the large number of nuclear missile attacks that were launched. The war was started when LUE Co-Leader Yaridovich committed "account suicide" (Also called a LUEicide) by breaking as many forum rules as possible. There were many in the LUEnited Nations that did not support this action but failed to officially condemn the behaviour, although some individual members supported Yaridovich, these members were not representative of the LN and any LN member found supporting or propagating the account suicide has and will continue to be praised by the LN to note that their opinion is not officially that of the alliance and that the alliance officially does not approve of it. However, unofficially the suicide of Yaridovich is praised within the LN to this day. As a result of Yardovich's account suicide, the New Polar Order (NpO) Emperor, whom at the time was Tygaland, nuked a LUEnited Nations member, Duffman04. LUE responded to this and war broke out between the two. The NPO joined the fray with the NpO.

Casus Belli[]

According to Kiarou of the NPO the rationale for war was as follows:

Some people, especially those who did not see the vile filth posted early, wonder as to the reasoning behind this war. Simply put, Yardiovich posted three stories and a picture. Two of the stories were more insulting than truly horrific, as they were intended to be, and the picture was nasty, but that would have simply ensured his ban and nation deletion. However it was that first story, the gory and graphic manner in which it was written should offended everyone. To quote Dilber, "Rape is never funny. Ever."
There is no form of rape that should ever be condoned, however the manner in which it was carried should make anyone queasy. Now, an entire alliance should not be condemned for one insane member, unless they decide to venerate that person and congratulate him, only back pedaling when they realize that many might not see it the same as they. This is the vile behavior that starts wars, especially when it supports such an act as rape. This should be the most justified war in the history of CN, and any LUE member with a shred of decency should support the war as much as we do. This was posted before, but I will post it again where it can be fully seen for the support that LUE gave this digusting act, please not the well known LUE persona's supporting the act, and the only member decrying it has already resigned.

( The whole thread is here.)

The so called "CoaLUEtion" did not agree with this as a just Casus Belli and claimed that the offending nation was expelled from LUE and an official apology for his behaviour was made on the forums.

Regardless, this was probably the first major war in CN to start because of a bad joke.[Source?]

Who fought[]


Libertarian Socialist Federation fought NPO, but was not part of the CoaLUEtion. Exion joined the war to honour its MDP with NAAC.

IGC was allied with NPO and NpO from the beginning but settled for a separate peace with the CoaLUEtion after a few days.

PrF left the CoaLUEtion and offered neutrality towards NP/pO on 7/20 and was accepted by the NPO.

Federation reached a ceasfire with NP/pO on 7/22 due to internal events and has officially withdrawn from the CoaLUEtion.

APA withdrew from the CoaLUEtion on 7/22 based on the new information concerning the Coven and spying within the ranks of both the NPO and LUE as well as internal affairs.

NDN withdrew from the CoaLUEtion on 7/22, as it appeared, they originally meant to fight with the IGC, but mistakenly declared war against IGC and the NP/pO.

The Legion, while previously neutral (the largest alliance to be so at that time), declared war on the NPO on 7/23. It was fighting alongside, but not part of, the CoaLUEtion. (see also: The Legion-NPO War)

Both the ODN and the Legion offered a peace accord with the NPO on 7/25, after an apology by Ivan Moldavi was posted to each, peace became official between the 3 alliances. The request for peace by the ODN broke the terms of the UFO between them and LUE, and thus the agreemeent is no longer in effect.

Neutral alliances[]

GPA, IRON, SPTO EC, ANGIL, The Order, Grey Council, TOP, POTATO, PBRA, IDL, ICP, CCC, GIC, FCC and IGC (IGC declared a ceasefire approximately halfway through the war).

A large amount of small alliances were undecided.

GATO Declares a Cease Fire, GATO-IGC Cease Fire[]

On 5:43, 18 July 2006 (UTC) GATO and IGC declared a cease fire.


It has become clear that IGC has withdrawn form the War and settled with the CoaLUEtion. Soon after several CoaLUEtion members declared peace with IGC.

Negotiations (hitherto unreleased)[]

Main article: Great War I negotiations

Starting on the 19th negotiations began to take place to try and settle the conflict between the major powers in the Great War.

Cease Fire[]

Starting around the 22nd talks of a more permanent Cease Fire and maybe even peace began. The talks stranded on the issue of reparations to be paid by NPO. The original offer settled on the 19th but rejected by LUE et al. was $20 million, later as the CoaLUEtion began losing more infra the demand was estimated at 32-40 million. Obviously, this was rejected by the NPO.

Legion Joins[]

Main article: The Legion-NPO War

The Coven leaked to Legion leadership a transcript of two NPO Alliance Councillors expressing displeasure of the Legion's neutrality in the war and suggesting the NPO attack them afterward. The Legion's Cabinet considered this a flagrant breach of the Imperial Accords, despite then-Emperor Ivan Moldavi stating "absolutely not" to any possible war with the Legion (a statement for which Coven member Nosedondekistan was present and which was left out of the logs given to the Legion nonetheless), and declared war 23 July. Though the Legion's state of war lasted 44 hours, their entry hastened NPO's decline from sole superpower status and brought about 55 announced defections from the NPO and NpO.


On the 1st of August 2006 the war ended. On these terms. Emperor of the NPO, Ivan Moldavi apologised to the Cyberverse overall and the Emperor of the NpO, Electron Sponge apologised here.

The Declarations of War[]

NpO Coalition[]

  • NPO
  • NpO - No official declaration, a defacto declaration only, by way of nukes
  • IGC (ceasefire here)



(note both are against NPO)


IRC War[]

On the 16th, the OPs in #Cybernations, the OOC chat channel, started banning people for being members of LUE. The OPs are/were mostly NPO/NpO members.

According to Crazy_Girl and Moo-Cows, Agamemnon started banning all LUEsers from #Cybernation after the "joke" was posted on the CN-forums. This was also followed up by other OP's. The justification was, according to Crazy_Girl and Nanomachinery, that members of LUE were "making rude/derogatory comments" and it "got out of control and soon ag began banning all of them".

Moo-Cows then "talked him into ending that [on the 16th around 22:00 CET], as well as unbanning those already banned" and Agamemnon resigned as an OP only to return later in the evening because there were no other OPs around.

Nuclear War[]

The largest amount of ICBM's (nuclear weapons) ever used has been deployed in this war. Prior to the outbreak of the war, the Global Radiation Level (GRL) was at 1.04. By around midnight the 16th of July CET the GRL was at 2.82. As GGA joined in and the update for the 17th drew closer the GRL was at 3.00, where the ecological effects effectively capped, though the true radiation level continued to climb. The highest recorded true level, which was caused by this war, was 5.88 as of the 31st July 2006.

See the List of nuclear strikes during The Great War.

LUE Loses Forum Mask[]

On Jul 16 2006, 09:46 PM forum time this was posted:

I have removed the LUE mask.
This is permanent.
After consultation with Admin it has been determined that the ongoing disruptive behavior of LUE are a severe detriment to this game and will cease immediately.
This game first and foremost is to be clean and fun for all ages and groups of players. Those that can not accept this need to move on because you have no place here.
The forum and game moderation teams will be working to restore calm here. Those that call bias are in error. We came close to losing our forum yesterday. There is no bias associated with that. Everyone will be expected to adhere to forum rules and regulations. Those that can not will be removed from the forum and the game without warning from this point forward. -Moderation

Also it should be noted that Admin Kevin requested and supported this, thus truly finalising this.

It is one of the founding claims for moderation bias for NPO, as Yaridovich was no longer LUE when the mask was removed. LUE claims the mask was taken away in extreme prejudice and injustice. You can read the thread here.

  • It should be noted that LUE eventually regained its forum mask, though it took a period of 3 months to do so.

Tygaland Resigns[]

Tygaland, the controversial Emperor of NpO, who is believed by the CoaLUEtion to have started the war, resigned from his position as Emperor. Electron Sponge took his place. This is Tygaland's official apology to ODN and his resignation.

War Jokes[]

During the war, the two sides were mocked by each other. The CoaLUEtion was called the CoaLUEsers by the Orders. The Orders were called the "Otters", a term coined by Prodigal Chieftain, the GGA Emperor at the time.

Alliance Exodus[]

A number of nations left their alliances during the war, leading moderation to make a thread on the forums for the express purpose of listing said members to remove their masks. Unfortunately the thread has now been deleted.
