The Official History Of The Alliance Of Leviathan


In the year 2504, Lawrence Taimon and his followers swooped into Russia during the end of the second Russian Revolution. In a matter of weeks, they took over and established Russian peace for the country and the surrounding nations. While some suggested calling Taimon’s country “New Russia” or some form of the original name, Taimon decided that though sharing similarities with communism, he didn’t want the country to sound communist. Therefore, he decided to completely change the name, and soon Russia was called Leviathan, after the Biblical monster. 

The first forty years of Leviathan flowed smoothly, forming treaties with other nations until nearly the entire world became allies with Leviathan. The United States, however, stubbornly refused to involve themselves for fear of a ninth world war. As Leviathan grew more powerful, but not domineering, other governments began to propose that their countries join with Leviathan to form an international country– and an international world peace. Most of the countries did merge, with the exceptions of Brazil, Germany, South Africa, and the United States who were all hesitant or straight up unwilling to join what became known as “the Alliance of Leviathan.”

Then, almost exactly fifty years after the beginning of the Alliance, tragedy struck. A terrorist group from the United States, known as Killing  Eagle, attacked the capital of the Alliance, killing Lawrence Taimon and many of the other major leaders of the Alliance. The United States president, Alfred Whetherfeild, immediately sent forth an apology on behalf of the U.S., but few believed his good intentions. All evidence pointed to the United States, which had become more and more corrupt over the years, as the brains behind Killing Eagle’s plan. 

Young Darion Farthern, a rising commander in the Alliance and one of the few survivors of the attacks, took over. At only twenty-seven, Father was in charge of over half the world. Farthern used many of Taimon’s ideas, such as a parliamentary-like government and job training for the impoverished, and integrated them with his own. He had seen how rebellion would hurt the ranks of even the strongest armies, and he foresaw the damage small rebel groups would instigate within the Alliance, especially because of the incredible size of the nation. This realization formed into an idea which Farthern would become best known for: The Games.

The Games consisted of agility tests and mental tests, observing the abilities of every competitor. Teenagers from around the Alliance would volunteer to compete in their region’s competitions, because to succeed in the competitions guaranteed one a spot in the prestigious schools that produced so many future Alliance leaders. 

However, the Games weren’t only to pick out the most capable, but the most loyal. If a teenager volunteered, then began to cause mischief, they would be inspected and potentially sent as a worker to the outer regions. Those who excelled continued on to have successful careers.

Time passed, and the countries that had refused the Alliance’s initial offer eventually gave in, allowing themselves to integrate with the Alliance’s government, except for the United States. 

The year Farthern died, only two countries remained in the world: The Alliance of Leviathan and the United States of America. Farthern’s successer, Costein Eirnam, proclaimed the U.S. corrupt, due to the near-constant abortions and euthanizing of anyone who might be considered weak. In his infamous speech at the Council of Tropian, he said, “Nothing can be done for a nation so far gone. It either must be dissolved or destroyed. At some point, when so many are dying, there is no chance for its redemption.”

Eirnam invaded the United States in 2585, completing the temporary peace of the world and thousands of years the world would live under the rule of the Alliance.
