The League of Nations (LoN) is an intergovernmental organization tasked with promoting international cooperation as well as creating and maintaining international order. It was established after the decades-long Great War, with the aim of preventing future wars, and had no immediate predecessor, though a series of 19th century international congresses formed the base precedent for its foundation. It is headquartered in Alba Concordia, a city and territory under the sovereignty of the League. The organization is financed by assessed and voluntary contributions from its member states. Its objectives include maintaining international peace and security, protecting human rights, delivering humanitarian aid, promoting sustainable development, and upholding international law. The League of Nations is the largest, most familiar, most internationally represented and is one of the most powerful intergovernmental organizations in the world.

History

In the last years of the Great War, it became evident that the existing method of diplomacy - bilateral negotiations - had failed. In the early 1950s, negotiations to end the warfailed and most historians state that the war continued for three years beyond its natural conclusion having been reached. The great powers involved in the war were hesitant to agree peace deals they perceived as detrimental to their geopolitical standi g abroad and political standing at home. As early as 1948, the problem of diplomacy being viewed as zero sum was evident to many observers. An institution designed to arbitrate disputes with a global mandate was viewed by many as a hopeful outcome of the Great War.

Multilateral negotiations eventually brought an end to the conflict in 1953, and as part of the peace agreement the initial framework for the League of Nations was set forth. Ongoing negotiations lead to the adoption of the League of Nations Charter in June of 1955. The initial treaty was agreed to by every major participant within the Great War besides Pauldustllah, who objected to participation in the same organization as Caphiria. Subsequent acts were added to the Code of the League of Nations over the next decade, establishing the basis of international law.
