The New Pacific Order (NPO) was founded on December 1, 2015 and announced its existence on January 6, 2016. Roquentin leads the alliance as Emperor. New Pacific Order is one of the largest alliances in both membership count and score. The Order operates the largest command economy in Politics & War.
The official sanctioned name of the alliance is the New Pacific Order, but it is also known as Pacifica or simply the Order. Its members are commonly known as Pacificans and collectively are referred to as the Body Republic.
The Charter of the New Pacific Order defines the alliance's government structure as well as procedures for the admission and expulsion of alliance members and for amending the charter.
To become a member nation of the New Pacific Order, a candidate must post an application on the New Pacific Order's forums. The applicant is then asked a series of questions by members of the alliance. Depending on the applicant's answers and activity they are either accepted or rejected on a case by case basis by a staff member in NPO's Academy department.
Successful applicants are then made cadets and enter the Imperial Academy where they are given access to guides on the basics of Politics & War and Pacifican culture/history. After some time (up to the cadet) a review of the guides is conducted in order for the cadet to demonstrate they are ready and understand the basics of the game and Pacifica. Once the review is passed, a cadet achieves full member status in Pacifica.
At the top of the Imperial Leadership chain-of-command and serving as the leader of the NPO is the Emperor. The Emperor has complete power over the internal and external functions of the alliance, and the Emperor cannot be expelled.
Below the Emperor sits the Regent and the Lord Commander. The Lord Commander acts on the Emperor's behalf and assumes responsibility when the Emperor is unavailable. The Regent provides administrative support as required.
Below the Lord Commander are the High Lords. These High Lords assist with the running of the alliance to ensure that the New Pacific Order continues to maintain a dominate position in the Politics & War.
When an Emperor steps down they receive the title Imperator Emeritus, and are still able to give advice and comment to the new Emperor while they are a member of the New Pacific Order. Any Imperator Emeritus who leaves the New Pacific Order will still retain their title, but is no longer considered a part of the government in the Order.
In Politics & War, Pacifica has two main departments, the third is a shared resource of the greater NPO community.
The Imperial Academy manages alliance application and mentorship programs. The Academy Staff screen applicants to make sure candidates meet or exceed the standards. Once candidates pass the application process they are taught Politics & War gameplay mechanics, Pacifican culture and history by the Academy Instructors.
Pacific Financial is the economic department that is tasked with managing alliance resources, and procuring more to meet the alliance's growing needs.
The Media Corps is a shared department between the New Pacific Order community. It consists of Writers, Graphics Artists, and Wiki staff. Writers provide written content for various branch functions, they are integral in maintaining Pacifican culture and tradition. Graphics Artists supply Writers with pictures for their articles, content for members (signatures/avatars), graphics for official NPO internal/external communiques and more. Wiki staff work to ensure the various branch wiki articles are kept up to date, vandalism free all the while expanding their respective community's wiki content with new pages for treaties, members, etc.

Community history Edit
|Founded||Sept 1, 2003|
The New Pacific Order has a long and rich history. The Order was founded in NationStates (NS) in August 2003, making it one of the oldest regional governments there. It is the largest autocracy in NS and plays an active role in global politics and in its home region, the Pacific.
Cyber Nations Edit
|Founded||Jan 27, 2006|
In January 2006 the New Pacific Order's Cyber Nations (CN) branch was founded by eight members of the Order in NationStates, shortly after the game was launched, making it the second-oldest alliance in CN. Since then the Order has been an important actor in nearly every major war and has consistently been one CN's largest, most powerful, and most active alliances.
