I'm happy to announce that the Covenant is once again a bloc rather than a particularly fancy treaty between the United Purple Nations and the Dutch East India Company. After working together with the alliances of The North American Confederation and Polaris we have come to the belief that that they are and will be particularly close allies to both the UPN and the DEIC. We are therefor happy to welcome the North American Confederacy and Polaris into the Covenant.
