|South Atlantic Treaty Organization|
The South Atlantic Treaty Organization (SATO) is a now-defunct alliance that was once very influential.
- SATO was founded to counter The Reich.
- SATO was active in many peacekeeping missions and operations to defend member governments.
- For example, SATO defended Knootoss from the GDODAD during the Shadow War
- SATO had close links to the WBO, an economic organisation ceased to exist as well.
- SATO Space Station One still exists in the Alpha Centauri system.
The nations of SATO agree
- To contribute such military forces as they are able to the alliance.
- That they will stand by resolved policies.
- That they will stand against terrorism and nations which support it.
- That they will stand against nations which pursue a policey of aggression against member states.
- That they will support the Treaty of Lyle and prevent it from being broken. (the Treaty of Lyle effectively stating that the combatants of the last war with the Reich will agree to support the sovereignty of one another)
- That they will pursue a policey of peace with other nations where possible, but will be ready to back that up with force.
- That we will also where at least 2/3 of the alliance agree provide humanitarian relief or aid to countries embroiled in other conflicts.
- We will not use this alliance to pursue power for our own nations nor to pursue agendas of vengeance or land seizure.
