Pandemic is a green team alliance, formerly known as the GameStrafe Alliance (GSA). Pandemic is also a direct democratic alliance. There is no king, emperor or council.

Direct democracy, classically termed pure democracy, comprises a form of democracy and theory of civics wherein sovereignty is lodged in the assembly of all citizens who choose to participate. Depending on the particular system, this assembly might pass executive motions, make laws, elect and dismiss officials and conduct trials.

Direct democracy stands in contrast to representative democracy, where sovereignty is exercised by a subset of the people, usually on the basis of election. Deliberative democracy incorporates elements of both direct democracy and representative democracy.

In Pandemic any member can vote on important decisions and we abide by the will of the majority. There are electable positions like minister of foreign affairs and defence minister, who have a limited amount of autonomy to make the necessary decisions in times of need.

In order to maintain stable and good relationships with other alliances, Pandemic has specific "spokesmen or spokeswomen" appointed, who act as diplomats.

Pandemic is in no way related to Pandemic Alliance of Nations
