A pact is a Meta-Game mechanic in which two or more federations make a military agreement.


NAP

An NAP, or Non-Aggression Pact, is a pact in which two federations agree not to attack each other.

ODP

An ODP, or Optional Defense Pact, is a pact in which two federations agree that if one of them gets attacked, the other may come to its aid.

MDP

An MDP, or Mutual Defense Pact, is a pact in which two federations agree that if one of them gets attacked, the other will come to its aid.

MDaOAP

An MDaOAP, or Mutual Defense and Optional Aggression Pact, is a pact in which two federations agree that if one of them gets attacked, the other will come to its aid. It also comes with the condition that if one of them starts a war of aggression, the other has the option to help.

OAP

An OAP, or Optional Aggression Pact, is a pact in which two federations agree that if one of them starts a war of aggression, the other has the option to help.

MAP

An MAP, or Mutual Aggression Pact, would in theory be a pact in which two federations agree that if one of them starts a war of aggression, the other will help. In practice, however, this pact is typically merely a joke in which two players agree to call each other childish insults, such as smelly dumb poo head or poopyface who cannot use my crayons.

MDaMAP

An MDaMAP, or Mutual Defense and Mutual Aggression Pact, would in theory be a pact in which two federations agree that if one of them either gets attacked or starts a war of aggression, the other will help. In practice, however, this type of pact does not exist, probably because it's too binding for federation leaders to want to try it.

Supra-Alliance

Essentially, this type of pact is an MDaOP in which more than two federations take part. Supra-Alliances will typically come with varying terms and names.

Protectorate

This type of relationship functions essentially like an MDP, with a few differences. Namely, both federations don't have to agree; one can just claim the other as a protectorate and impose certain terms on it. Due to the non-consensual nature of this federation relationship, the only way for both federations involved to recognize this action as legitimate is if the protectorate is much weaker than the protector, or if the protectorate likes the protector for some reason or other.
