The Comprehensive Negotiating Framework for Southern Wallasea, commonly known by its abbreviation CNF or as the Allied Forces Southern Wallasea, is a supranational regional intergovernmental organization and military alliance comprised of five Wallasean nations. The CNF was officially formed in 1983 with the signing of the Treaty of Sertolovo, and is headquartered in První, Poláčekia as a successor to the earlier Eastern Wallasean Economic Community.

The CNF was founded in 1983 in direct response to the Prekovite invasion and annexation of Minua in 1981. Initially, the CNF was intended to serve as a mechanism to expedite the normalization of relations between Flamaguay and Zegora-Bogatovia, which had begun to thaw in the mid-1970s, as a means to ensure Zegoran cooperation in the event of a widespread conflict with Prekovy. Four of the member states implemented the Collective Defense Principle in 1985, transforming the CNF into a dedicated military alliance with the creation of Supreme Headquarters Wallasean Allied Powers (SHWAP).

The CNF has since come to govern most facets of the relations, both in military and civil matters, between its member states. Each of the five member states has a permanent representative on the Council of Southern Wallasea that is chaired by the organization's Secretary General and meets daily in První.

History

Eastern Wallasean Economic Community

Following the 1958 War of the Three Valleys, previously fraught relations between Zegora-Bogatovia and Flamaguay completely collapsed as Flamaguay cut all diplomatic ties with Zegora. Zegora, which underwent a major political upheaval after the war as militant officers and government officials were purged from public life, was wary of Prekovy after its refusal to aid it during the war. Zegora ended its long-standing alliance with the northern Wallasean power and instead sought to improve relations with its eastern neighbor Saratovia.

The Saratov government had leaned heavily on the Flamaguayan side during the Three Valleys conflict, but nevertheless sought to bring the conflict to a permanent political resolution and reopen Zegoran-Flamaguayan relations. Zegora and Saratovia agreed to a bilateral cooperation agreement in 1960 with the Rzhesk Accord, which enabled free-trade and visa-free travel between the two. Relations between Zegora and Saratovia began to warm rapidly despite a long history of an antagonistic rivalry. Soon after, in 1964, Saratovia brokered a similar agreement between Zegora and Poláčekia, informally creating the Eastern Wallasean Economic Community. Minua was invited to join the zone as the fourth partner in 1968.

Flamaguayan-Zegoran diplomatic talks

In 1972, Saratov Chancellor Gavril Adonin organized a secret state summit between the Flamaguayan and Zegoran governments to begin initial talks for the reopening of diplomatic relations between the two. The summit failed to produce a commitment from either party to reopen diplomatic ties, however both agreed to hold another summit the following year. The 1973 summit was hosted in První and had representatives from Poláčekia and Minua in attendance to help broker a deal. The 1973 summit resulted in an agreement on a roadmap for a path to reopening relations, with a commitment for a public summit to be held in 1975.

An agreement was reached at the 1975 summit for Flamaguay and Zegora to reopen their embassies in each others' capitals by 1 January 1978, and to recognize one another diplomatically with immediate effect. The roadmap created in 1973 was expanded to include planned negotiations over the status of the disputed territories.

Minu War and Treaty of Sertolovo

In September 1980, an attempted coup d'etat by ethnic Prekovar nationalists and sympathizers failed during the Irbene Putsch. The main organizers and conspirators behind the coup attempt managed to evade capture, and appealed to Prekovy for assistance. Seeing an opportunity to recapture territory lost during the Great War, the Prekovite Armed Forces launched an invasion in May 1981. The attack caught the rest of Wallasea off-guard, especially neighboring Saratovia and Poláčekia, and triggered the simultaneous Poláček Crisis of 1981.

The Eastern Wallasean Economic Community lacked any provisions for common defense. While many of the southern Wallasean states maintained bilateral defense agreements with one-another, there was no overarching structure to coordinate efforts on a greater scale. The response to the Prekovite invasion of Minua was largely impotent, and Prekovy easily managed to capture and annex the entirety of Minu territory.

The invasion alarmed all of the southern Wallasean states, which had been surprised by the show of aggression from Prekovy. Prekovy maintained territorial claims on several other Wallasean states, including both Flamaguay and Zegora, which was further cause for alarm. The Flamaguayan and Saratov governments convened a prompt emergency summit in Evora in late 1981 to discuss a plan of action, where they determined a united front was essential to survive against a resurgent Prekovy. A new framework would be required to expedite the recovery of Flamaguayan-Zegoran relations that had started in 1975, in order to keep Zegora on the side of the southern independent states.

The Treaty of Sertolovo was brokered in 1982 between Embrea, Flamaguay, Poláčekia, Saratovia, and Zegora-Bogatovia. The Zegorans were the most reluctant to enter a formal agreement with the Flamaguayans so soon after reopening relations, but the Saratov government convinced them that creating a new organization was essential to maintaining their independence. As a result of the signing of the Treaty of Sertolovo, the Comprehensive Negotiating Framework for Southern Wallasea was formally inaugurated on 1 January 1983, with plans to build a permanent headquarters in Poláčekia.

Exercise Stalwart Shield was first held in 1983 to test military interoperability between Flamaguayan, Poláček, and Saratov forces. The process of military integration was formalized in 1985, when four of the signatories - Embrea, Flamaguay, Poláčekia, and Saratovia - implemented the Collective Defense Principle. Zegora was invited to join the agreement, but opted to keep its military forces outside of the new integrated military command structure. Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Wallasea was created to oversee joint military operations among the four members of the CDP.

Modern Day

  • 1993 - Flamaguay returns Mozalvia to Zegora - does Zegora integrate into SHWAP?
  • is there anyone left to peacekeep in crataea with ongobongoland gone?

Organization

Civil

  • Council for Southern Wallasea
    • Secretary General - rotates between all 5 member states, civilian diplomat/official
    • Chairman of the Military Committee - rotates between all 5 member states, general officer
    • Permanent Representatives - appointed diplomats from each member state
    • Observer - representative of Minu Govt in Exile (?)

Military

  • Supreme Headquarters Wallasean Allied Powers (SHWAP)
    • Supreme Allied Commandant Wallasea (SACWAL) - rotates between a Flamaguayan or Saratov general officer (as the largest militaries)
    • Deputy Supreme Commandant - rotates between a Polacek or Embrean general officer (and Zegoran if integrated now??)

When SACWAL is a Flamaguayan, DSACWAL is a Polacek; Saratov SACWAL = Embrean DSACWAL to maintain east/west balance
