The United Defensive Front (UDF) is an alliance between Icenia, Yoahtl, Columbia, Imperial Truidence and Southshire. The UDF was founded on July 16th, 2019, and is built on the pillars of self determination, neutrality, free trade, mutual defense, and shared infrastructure. It was formed in the wake of the collapse of the UNC, when newly unaligned nations friendly with Icenia seeked to form an alliance for the purpose of mutual defense.
The name United Defensive Front and much of the original charter were proposed by ChrisChrispie and Truck_Man1234, and much of the original charter was written by Icenians. After the addition of Columbia, the charter was revised heavily, with definitions added for the eventual addition of associate members, and changing the way directives are approved within the alliance.
In March of 2020 Bloom left the UDF due to war exhaustion and Columbian distrust of their commitment to the war against NATO and soon after, Southshire joined. After the war, SPQR would vote to join the alliance.
The Spokesperson is tasked with representing the UDF’s interests to nations outside the alliance, as well as facilitating clear internal communications between member states. They are elected by the member heads of state, and serve until resignation or impeachment. Enforcer15 (Enforcer#7777) is the current and longest-serving spokesperson.

The UDF is founded on a pillar of neutrality, so the UDF mostly stays neutral to all current nations and alliances, and lets individual nations guide their own foreign relations under its self determination pillar.
Drama from Varkonia's previous relations with Icenia and Bloom led to an incident where the newly-founded UDF wrongly accused the Entente and Mir of wanting to alt raid and eventually attack the UDF. This accusation was based on fake screenshots. Since this, nations within the UDF have improved their intelligence agencies drastically.
A "Chick Fil-A" was built in Icenia, which was illegally too close to defensive infrastructure. It was constructed by a player named Figasaur was ordered to be torn down by Icenia government. The LSD, a new military alliance, was formed around the same time as this, and was briefly roped into this drama due to having some members involved. Threats to Obbybomb, coup, and raid Icenia and associated UDF countries prompted the UDF to ramp up their defense. The UDF strategically decided to wait for an LSD attack (which was not coming) so it could mount a successful counter offensive and gain more international support.
However, the Entente and SATO military powers had disabled much of the LSD's military capability before the UDF could have done so, leading to the Entente-Laconia War. In the end, the UDF ended up doing nothing as the Entente was getting threats for defending Imperial Truidence in a petty dispute with a former citizen, leading to the swift attack.
War of the Coalition
In December of 2019 Icenia City, along with several other non-UDF territories, was obby bombed by rouge nation located on the border of the HJE and SPQR called Ransakistan. The UDF during this time played an instrumental roll in the coalition that formed in the immediate aftermath of the bombings, with Icenia becoming a major base of operations for retaking the Lusitan Line. Although the UDF lost one pearl in combat (ChrisChrispie), the Coalition still managed to totally disable the Ransakistani Vault within two weeks of its discovery.
Entry into the Infinity War
Despite a desire among UDF members for neutrality and expansion after the War of the Coalition, it was soon discovered that NATO, instead of turning over the pearls of several of the escaped Ransakisanis, had taken them in. As a direct result of this, many member states of the UDF, especially Columbia, sent PvPers to the Pinkerton Vault Break. After NATO discovered this, the UDF voted for official entry into the Infinity War and proceeded to break Corvus later in February along with Entente and Mirian PvPers. After the breaking of Corvus, the UDF settled into a long siege in the city of Valyria where NATO forces attempted to take the Crucible, the main vault of Columbia. During this siege, the cities of Rotterdam, Polska, and Valyria were all heavily damaged and the region became a wasteland with NATO forces occupying Polska until a skybridge was built into the territory and traps were disabled. In the summer of 2020, the war finally picked back up again with the UDF participating heavily in the cracking of Hallow's vault alongside Mirrian, Entente, and select SATO fighters. The UDF would ultimately see the war to its bitter end when, almost exactly one year after its founding, it helped crack Best Western, Vault 76, and the next day "Litterbox", thus ending the war.
