African Union

From Abeyance

African Union was a continental union that was formed in the year of 1999 in Sirte, Libya.


Early History

In the early days of the African Union the union served to create stability and abundance on the continent. After the cessation of many years of civil war and depletion by former colonial powers the African continent did not only become more independent, it became a global power. During the 2500´s there were several countries like Zimbabwe, Botswana, Morocco and Egypt that tried to break free from the union due to its decreasing democratic structure. However after swift actions from the leadership the countries were kept in line by resolute military actions.

The Great Unification

In the year of 2990 "The Great Unification"-motion was proposed during the Kinshasa extra electoral session of the African Union. The term was coined by the general secretary Ababuo Mbembe to describe the great political changes that she had proposed for the union. The plan was to formally create one African nation instead of a political union. To many countries in the union this was not seen as a step in the right direction and the leader of the opposition Jetron Naviava of Kenya proclaimed that they would encourage all the member states to oppose the unification. And many northern as well as southern states lined up behind Naviava. The central African states however were in general more positive to the proposal while the northern and the southern states were generally more negative.

Naviava worked hard to lobby the leaders to vote against the motion and Naviavas efforts started to make a difference. In fact Mbembe started to anticipate losing the vote. It is therefore widely believed that the events on the 5th of May was ordered by Mbembe herself. In the early morning on the 5th of May Naviavas private house was stormed by a masked militia that kidnapped them and brutally murdered them. Many believe that this was Mbembes way of scaring the doubting member states to keep in line. In fact it had the opposite effect with Kenya being the exception. Northern and southern states decided to break free from what they called "Mbembes tyranny". This countries were South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Algeria, Libya, Morocco, Egypt, Niger and Mali. This left Mbembe with only one course of action, to unify the remaining countries. On January 12:th 2991 the remaining session voted for a unification of the remaining member states.

The War of Unification

Mbembe's first course of action was the creation of "The African Army". Over a few years she organized the forces into one unified organization. And in the year of 3020 she considered the army ready and began conquering the southern states. Mozambique and Botswana fell within a few years due to poor maintenance of their troops. Namibia did manage to fend off the AU-army for some time, but after an internal coup, that some believe was directed by Mbembe, the country couldn't withstand for long. Left was South Africa and Zimbabwe which were well prepared for a long war. Although the southern front was far from won Mbembe started to look north. In the years to come the AU-army fought a two front war. Even though it was long and difficult they were slowly winning. While The Global War started the African Union decided to stay neutral to focus on their own reunification conquest. An by the year of 3045 most of the outbreak states were conquered apart from South Africa which had lost a lot of territory but was still standing, Egypt and Libya which had joined the CAMA and Morocco which had joined the WTMA.

The Global War

In the year of 3051 the African Union decided to enter the Global War. The CAMA and WTMA had signed a mutual protection pact against the African Union who they felt were preparing for a confrontation. However, due to the CAMA:s and WTMA:s war weariness and lack of adequate weaponry they were in poor shape to defend their African member states. The African Union conquered Morocco and Libya in a short amount of time, although in the nuclear phase of the war there were still ongoing battles in both Egypt and South Africa. However due to the intensity of the nuclear phase of the war the African Union as well as the other political organizations didn't stand, and by the year of 3055 the union was considered non-existence.


The African Union was an authoritarian democracy. The union decided on an authoritarian leader who had mandate to govern for a 10 year period. However, decisions considering changing the amendments had to be decided by the member states leaders in an extra electoral session. With this exception, the federal power was all in the hands of the elected leader, although some domestic issues were decided by the local governments.


The emblem of the African Union consisted of a golden map of Africa with a golden ribbon surrounding it with red interlocking rings and palm trees shooting up.
