Alternative History

After the hostilities of The Great War, the Germans initiated the Alliance of States (Allianz der Staaten) using Immanuel Kant's treatise "Perpetual Peace," as a guide. In December of 1919, a conference was held in Dubhlinn, Ireland, as the Irish were viewed as a less politically charged than the United States of America or Germany. An initial draft was drawn up at the Dubhlinn Conference, and on April 12, 1920, the draft was ratified. Original signatories charter document were:

Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, El Salvador, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Republic of New France, Nicaragua, Norway-Sweden, Panama, Paraguay, Persia, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Siam, Spain, Switzerland, United States of America, Uruguay, Venezuela, and White Poland.

By the end of the year Albania, Austria, Bosnia-Hercegovina, Bulgaria, Costa Rica, Dalmatia, Finland, Luxembourg, Oltenia, and Slovenia.

1921 saw California, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Tirol join the charter. Hungary, Ethiopia, Ireland, and the Dominican Republic are admitted within the decade, and in the next decade, Mexico, Iraaq, Turkey, Afghanistan, Ecuador, the USSR and Egypt join. By the middle of the World War, the Alliance of States was moribund and practically defunct, meeting its demise in 1945 at the conclusion of hostilities.

The idea of the Alliance of States was reprised in the Scandinavian-created Nations of Earth
