Vigilant Alliance of Nations

The Vigilant Alliance of Nations was one of the oldest and venerable Factions on Nations. The Vigilant Alliance of Nations was dedicated to the protection of weaker nations, by means of both diplomacy and force. We look in the face of danger and spit in it, unwavering in our determination. We play to each others strengths, we cover each others weaknesses. While each nation in the VAN might be different, we have come together for the same goal: unity. We are a democratic faction which was born from the roots of the Holy Empires Coalition (HEC).

The Department of The Executive-

The Executive is the highest role any nation can apply for in the VAN. It is the official leadership position and figurehead of The Vigilant Alliance of Nations. The powers the Executive maintains are the right to veto laws (rarely used, though), power to refuse new members into the VAN, highest commander of VAN military forces and ultimately responsible for the Vigilant Alliance of Nation's safety during his/her term. In the event that the Executive resigns, ejected,leaves the VAN, or unable to access Nations, the current Vice-Executive is Executive for the remainder of the previous Executive's term.

Current Executive: As of the 29th of October, 2010
Executive- Devan McDaniels of Alicante

Vice Executive- Nathan Alveshere of the United States of America

The Legislature of the VAN is one of the most important Departments in the VAN. It votes on laws, appoints the executive, admits new members to the VAN and has the power to eject rogue members.

VAN Elections-

The Vigilant Alliance of Nations adopts a two tiered voting system when appointing the Legislature and the Executive;

The Legislature has 7 members, selected every 3 weeks by means of VAN membership vote, in which each member has a vote in deciding the legislature. As the main VAN governing body it is important in the upholding of democracy for the legislature to open to free elections.

The executive government is formed by the Executive, who is appointed by the legislature through a vote every 3 weeks, and the secretariate, who are appointed by the executive.

Political parties have come about after the adoption of the free legislature voting system, with two current active parties; the Intl. Democratic Party of Unity and the Re-Public party.

  • Alliance Terran Co-dominant species of the NFPA 1st Independent Exploratory Group, with Arzorans. Technically speaking, not a separate race from normal humans, but 1,600 years of separation from Earth plus ethnic interbreeding and vastly different cultural attitudes sets them apart from baseline humans.

  • Dalek Present in Uisge Beatha.
  • Dex Majority species of The Dex Empire, bipedal and lizard-like.

  • Humans Included for completeness. The dominant species in the international community, and believed to be present in all VAN member Nations, although not always the majority species. The only homo sapiens nations in power are the United States 0f America and The Eastern Roman Empire.

  • Sangheil Present in small numbers in Mellan.
  • Self-aware AI Prevalent in the Great Houses of Xie, forming one of the Houses. It is also widely used in the United States 0f America, as the AI have been gaining more rights over the years as the populations resentment toward the Tetron occupation fades. However, there is President Laura who is an AI who currently holds office, this was largely due to the ending of the Tetron civil war. Also present in the NFPA 1st Independent Exploratory Group.
  • Talking Dog Canis lupus familiaris can be found in Melbourne Town.
  • Tsee Former subjects of the Sadath, loosely hive-minded monarchy, resemble 1-metre-tall overgrown hamsters and use giant mecha in combat.
