The Preemptive Pirate Defense War was a short unannounced conflict whereas Arrgh launched a large preemptive attack on Rose and the Viridian Entente after noticing their militarization and receiving intel that both were gearing up to attack Arrgh in retaliation for their raiding.
The conflict occurred concurrently to the Second North American Raid War whereas Arrgh was fighting the North American Confederacy, an ally of the Viridian Entente. Shortly after launching the attack, discussions took place with Rose who denied planning on attacking Arrgh. They stated that they were only planning to counter any raiders. Peace ended up being agreed with Rose shortly after this on the night of March 11 leading to the majority of declarations for the conflict taking place against the Viridian Entente. Over 150 wars were declared against the Viridian Entente before peace was agreed upon the following day to take affect on the night of March 12. The Viridian Entente also stated they were not planning on attacking Arrgh and would only counter nations raiding them.
