were composed of various western and formerly American influenced countries tired of the influence wielded by the Soviet Union in world affairs, made more frustrating by the Dissolution of the United States in 1986. The sense of being rendered secondary by the Soviet Union led many of these countries to elect right-wing leaders to power in the beginning of the 21st century.

In addition, the unrecognized micronation, the Principality of Sealand, under Crown Prince Paddy Roy Bates sent an invasion force of about 20 men to attack the city of Schwerin, in Germany. The Sealander force aided the forces of Portugal, Spain and Pennsylvania in the attack, and captured some prisoners. Sealand was granted a limited recognition by Portugal in response, to the chagrin of the United Kingdom.
