The Green Old Party is a soft neutral alliance in the Green Trading Sphere. It is an alliance that is aimed at real life conservatives; though there are liberals, and many different variations of conservative beliefs represented within the GOP membership. The GOP was founded in late January 2009 by Rooman33; he and the half dozen or so earliest GOP members left the CCC because of ideological differences, and decided to form the GOP. Friends from the Greenland Republic also joined to help form the alliance.

Brief HistoryEdit

The GOP was founded on January 30, 2009. In the next three days, the founding members set up the government, charter, DoN, and DoS. Also in this time period the first triumvirate was temporarily appointed by Rooman33. On February 1, 2009 the official Declaration of Existence was made on the OWF. On 11 March 2009 the GOP had it's first elections and re-elected the previously appointed triumvirate.

In July 2009, along with other prominent neutral alliances, all members of the Green Old Party were sent a recruitment message from the New Sith Order. The GOP's response was one of outrage, prompting the then Triumvirs of Military Affairs and Foreign Affairs, Rooman33 and Rekh127 respectively, to resolve to find a resolution to the controversy. After long talks on IRC, the NSO apologized to GOP members on the GOP forums, publicly on the CyberNations forums and the GOP announced a Statement of Reconciliation and Unofficial Friendship between the two alliances.

In September 2013 Mushqaeda declared war on The Democratic Order simply because of its neutrality. In response the GOP invoked its "Don't Tread On Me Doctrine", which states that GOP reserves the right to combat any unjustified attacks on neutrality, and declared war on Mushqaeda.

In June 2015, the membership voted to merge into their longtime protectors in the Viridian Entente. The AA remains protected by VE.
