The North Atlantic Treaty Organization, also known as the North Atlantic Alliance and often abbreviated to NATO, was a pre-war intergovernmental military alliance based on the North Atlantic Treaty which was signed on April 4, 1949.
In February of 1998, the Citadel Starstation neared completion. Tensions arose around the world. The governments in the South and Central Americas, many of them set up by the United States during the Drug Wars, pledged their support to the U.S.
The NATO nations, including the new African members also declared their alliance with the U.S. That move forced most of the remaining neutral powers to join the Soviet protest. In six short weeks, only Switzerland, Sweden, and Ireland continued to declare themselves neutral nations.
