The Commonwealth (TCW) was founded on October 7th 2016. The Commonwealth is a maroon alliance formerly based out of North America. The Commonwealth values growth and strength through unity and is historically known for low taxes.
The Commonwealth is a maroon alliance based out of North America. The Commonwealth values growth and strength through unity and is historically known for low taxes also the values of sovereignty and protection carried over from GPA as did orientation to whale growth and transparency and government still being accountable to members. For example, lying to members or making decisions that are still impeachable offenses to any government member especially for Prime Minister. Also the valuing of freedom of speech, not censoring our members and coup-culture carried over from GPA. So TCW is GPA without the neutrality, which doesn´t mean though we have to take s*** from our allies like some." ~Kalev60~ From the tCW Propaganda Channel (11/23/2019).
The Commonwealth was founded by Justin076, Queen M, Kalev60, Martbhell, Gills, Francisco II, Sven Shieldmaker and Tristar Majesitca on October 7th, 2016. The alliance was founded out of the ashes of the late Green Protection Agency, after the agency council approved the first charter and unanimously disbanded the alliance to form the Commonwealth. Upon it's foundation, The Commonwealth was protected by The Knights Radiant.
On the 16th of October, the Commonwealth formally announced its Declaration of Existence in Orbis.
55 Days into its existence, the Commonwealth was ranked as the 16th largest alliance in Orbis by score; and by the 23rd of December, the Commonwealth entered its first alliance war against Valyria. The Commonwealth entered this conflict at the request of its ally Obelisk and to seek vengeance for Valyria's extortion attempt against the Green Protection Agency in October of the same year. TCW's contribution to the conflict was minima. However, the conflict was historical and considered a game changer for the members of the alliance who, for the most part, came from the GPA who had been a neutral alliance for it's entire existence.
Just a few days following the conclusion of Dio's War on Christmas, The Commonwealth entered it's second armed conflict, this time at the request of its protector, The Knights Radiant. This time, The Commonwealth had declared war against Arrgh and Roz Wei and had skirmishes with Terminus Est. This was TCW's first full mobilization for an offensive war effort and proved to many within the PnW community that TCW did in fact have some formidable fighting capability. Despite being a relatively small protectorate of The Knights Radiant, TCW had finished fourth in infrastructure destroyed, fifth in Tanks killed and fourth in Aircraft killed among its coalition members.
On the 6th of January 2017, elections were held for the Triumvir of Foreign Affairs after Tristar Majistica retires, with Queen M being the victor.
On 20th January 2017, the First Charter of The Commonwealth Charter came into force, and the triumvirate system inherited from the Green Protection Agency was disbanded. This charter effectively cuts rememnents of the A prime ministerial system was introduced and elections held. Justin076 wins the election and is installed as its first Prime Minister.
On the 25th of April 2017, the Commonwealth forum, inherited from the Green Protection Agency, was disbanded in favor of Discord as a means of storing files, and communication between members.
On 10th February 2018, founder Justin076 resigns from the Office of Prime Minister of the Commonwealth, and by the 16th Justin leaves the alliance thus, concludes the Foundation era of The Commonwealth. By this time the alliance had reached 51 members. As his successor, Felkey was appointed to the role as the second Prime Minister of the Commonwealth.
On 14th May 2018, a merger was agreed to between the Commonwealth and Pantheon by the Felkey government and the Ridcully government respectively. This merger failed as Ridcully unexpectedly stood down as Titan, and allowed The Emperor (the new account of Fistandantilus) to take his place. The Olympians and deities of Pantheon launched a failed rebellion against The Emperor, and subsequently led a mass exodus from Pantheon, with the majority of ex-Pantheon members moving into the Commonwealth.
On 16th May 2018, Felkey abolished the Ministry of state, and replaced it with the Ministry of the Interior and Ministry of Finance respectively, to handle the high influx of nations fleeing from instability and uncertainty from Pantheon. The partial is followed by five months of unbroken economic prosperity and membership growth

From February 19th to February 24th 2020, the Commonwealth held a snap Prime Ministerial election to solidify Sphinx's political support in the alliance. Sphinx won a decisive majority vote, and his Prime Ministerial term was renewed.

Culture and Symbols
The membership of the Commonwealth is a diverse mix of players from around the world, with the most predominant population sect being the East Coast of North America, followed by the United Kingdom and Australia.
The promotion of the Commonwealth abroad primarily revolves around propaganda and opinion pieces written by Kalev60 in the tcw-propaganda channel.
The Commonwealth Flag
The first Commonwealth flag was a simple black cross with a red background. This flag was made to quickly rally its new members to the flag due to the rapid and hasty nature of the alliance's formation.
Successive flags of The Commonwealth revolves around a tree symbolizing longevity, branches of the tree and leaves being connected signaling unity and brotherhood, and the roots signaling the life long connection to something far older. The background color indicated the alliance color, while war flags have black or dark backgrounds. Over the years, additional decorations indicated real life festivities.
