United Nations of the North Atlantic (also known as UNNA [Euw-Na]) is a Socialist Confederate union of 10 member states/countries that are primarily located in Northern Europe.
UNNA traces its origins from WWTO- The World Wide Treaty Organization and NATO- North Atlantic Treaty organization and the EU- European Union.
The original 10 Member States were worried of a collapse of the EU due to hyperinflation of the Euro after World War Three caused by Lithuanian Government Officials accidently printing hundreds of 500 Euro notes. So they joined together to form a new Union with a new currency, The Nord. This was made official by the Treaty of Dublin.
The Capital City, Dublin was chosen during the Treaty of Dublin due to the long standing Neutrality and Global Influence of Ireland, to set a example of what the whole Union strived to be, Peaceful and Influential. In 2020 the United Kingdom left the Federation due to a lack of free market.
Although it regard it's members as being countries, as a Federal State UNNA is a member of the UN and ILUSN - International League of United Socialist Nations.
The Federal Parliament is elected every five years by UNNA citizens. UNNA opperates under a Socialist System. All citizens are allowed residence in any member country, and all countries use the Nord currency. It has a constitution and many Departments in charge of certain areas. The State owns all essential services such as Water, Energy, Heating ect and Most forms of Public Transport, Metro, Buses, City Buses, Trains, Monorails ect. But Banking and Industry are -for the most part- are Privately owned, but heavily regulated to be pro-consumer.
