I'd like to know more about this beastie. What are its goals? Is it primarily a free-trade zone, a defensive alliance, an organisation based on shared culture (seems unlikely), or what? How does it operate? What is the scope of its authority in the various member states? Details, Mr.X8, please! - Geoff 02:55, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Oh, one other thing - you call it a "Federation". This implies (to me, at least) a political union of the various members. Now, you might mean "League" or something similar, of course, but if you do mean Federation, I'm intrigued as to what prompted the various members to join. - Geoff 02:55, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

It was a deadlock on what the League was actually for. I think the closest the group came to in a decision was a shared cultural league. I can't find the the messages, but somewhere in conculture's archives from about the summer of '09 we discussed it. I remember we talked about why Nicolas Sarkozy fainted, which Dan said was because he was dehydrated, so maybe that will give you a time frame. Where do I say "Federation"? If I do I mean "League. A Federation would mean the nations fused into a semi-independent nation, wouldn't it? Misterxeight 05:32, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

You're exactly right that that's what "Federation" usually means. "Federation" is in the infobox under "Government type". I'll let you change it when you put some of this information into the article (gentle hint :) ) - Geoff 14:04, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
