The North American Confederacy was established on 1 June 2009 by many members of the original alliance disappointed with the merger with the Aquatic Coalition Front. Like its predecessor, North American Confederacy (NAC) was founded on the Purple sphere.
- The North American Confederacy (NAC) was reformed on 1 June 2009, by the original co-founders Hellbilly (aka Rattlehead) and Shavar after merging the original NAC with Aquatic Coalition Front, and short stints in The Order of the Four Leaf Clover (OFLC) and Lux Aeterna (LA). Hellbilly and Shavar were soon joined by other former Lux Aeterna members including Rooivaulk, who was later named a member of the Triumvirate along with Hellbilly and Shavar.
- The NAC started out on the purple trading sphere and was protected in its early growth by Invicta and later became members of Pegasus and PEACE. On 29 April 2010, the NAC left the Pegasus bloc but remained members of PEACE until leaving the purple sphere with Invicta on 22 July 2010. 
- On 11 February 2010, the NAC declared war on Stickmen in defense of Invicta. However the war was short-lived and the NAC agreed to peace on 19 February 2010. 
- On 3 December 2010, the NAC officially eclipsed the 1,000,000 NS mark. 
- On 26 January 2011, The NAC joined the DH-NPO War by declaring war on Goon Order of Oppression Negligence and Sadism (GOONS) for their attack on the New Pacific Order.  After more than a month of fighting, The NAC agreed to peace terms on 2 March 2011.  The NAC lost more than half of its original NS and left the war with a combined NS just under 500,000 with 75 nuclear weapons left. (Pre-war stats: 1,074,000 NS and over 200 nukes).
- On 1 June 2011, the NAC celebrated its 2 year anniversary and also publicly announced the addition of Thom98 as a member of the Triumvirate (replacing long time Trium member Rooivaulk whom retired).
- On 12 October 2011, The NAC announced several major changes including a move back to the Purple trading sphere and an upgraded treaty with Asgaard. 
- On 2 November 2011 announced a Optional Defense treaty with Death Before Dishonor (DB4D) 
- On 25 Novermber 2011 The NAC announced an Optional Defense treaty with long-time friends and fellow purple alliance SNAFU 
- On 10 December 2011, The NAC declared war on the North Atlantic Defense Coalition (NADC) in defense of Death Before Dishonor. 
In the year 2009 on the 1st day June, the peaceful, sovereign and independent nations rose up from deleted pixels in order to reform a permanent alliance, the North American Confederacy (NAC) to uphold the common values of Honor, Integrity and Unity. We the nations of the North American Confederacy (hereafter known as NAC) do ordain and establish this Charter and agree to abide by the rules and articles within. While the NAC is a peaceful alliance that wishes to avoid senseless conflict, we remain committed to defend not only our own values but those of our allies. We will act accordingly and with wanton disregard for the individual to defend not only our values, our alliance but those of our friends and allies.

A. War Policy:
i. Tech raids and any other unilateral aggressive actions or acts of War are strictly prohibited by the NAC unless directly approved by the Triumvirate or an order from the SoD.
ii. Any such unapproved action by a NAC member nation can result in severe punishment against said nation up to and including possible expulsion from the alliance (and if said action results in damage to the alliance or its reputation, the NAC Government reserves the right to demand reparations, declare said nation a rogue, or undertake military action against said nation.).
B. Defense Policy:
If a NAC nation is attacked it is to be reported to the Defense Department/SoD immediately. All relevant information must be posted on the NAC forums (under War Reports). The Triumvirate and/or SoD should be contacted before any action is taken.
C. No-Tolerance Policy for Attacks on NAC Members:
i. It is understood that all NAC members, regardless of their level of activity, are protected by the privileges of being a member of the NAC.
ii. All nations that initiate hostilities with a member of the NAC of their own volition(that is, without the direction of their alliance, if any) will be held solely accountable.
iii. It is not the responsibility of the NAC member involved to pay reparations to an attacking nation, nor will it ever be. All damage to an aggressor's own nation is the aggressor's doing, for having started the war in the first place.
iv. If a nation attacks an inactive NAC member, then offers peace and reparations, if the NAC member involved deems the reparation offer inadequate* and decides to continue conflict, for whatever reason, the initial aggressor is still the aggressor.
- In this situation, NAC members will not seek reparations greater than the damages done to one's nation.
v. Any attack on an inactive member of the NAC, by a member of an alliance, risks causing an inter-alliance incident. The NAC will not take such an event any less lightly than we would take an attack on an active member, and the alliance whose nation attacks our member is strongly urged to help restore just order.
vi. Summary: If you are in the habit of attacking inactive nations, stay away from NAC members. It's not worth it for either of us.
