Papers, Please was a global conflict which began on December 26, 2016, when The Knights Radiant, the Black Knights, Mensa HQ and numerous allies declared war on the paperless alliances of Terminus Est, Roz Wei, and Arrgh. The conflict ended up expanding to include 12 of the top 20 alliances and just over half of the top 30 but was very lopsided with 1.6 million score spread across 880 members on the aggressor side and 350 thousand score spread across 148 members on the paperless side.


The conflict began shortly after the end of both the Nuclear Raidmas involving the paperless alliances and Dio's War on Christmas involving Mensa HQ and allies. It was the first conflict that began after resistance was added to the war system and began with mass spying on the paperless alliances during the time the war system was frozen due to the coming update leading to the spy portions of the update being postponed by several weeks. The first peace came on January 14 when Arrgh and its combatants reached an agreement. Terminus Est was the second to reach an agreement, on 17th January. The war concluded on January 20 when Roz Wei was the third and final to have reached an agreement.
