The Baltic Union is an Economic-Military Union of Belarus, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. It was formed in 1992 to co-ordinate trade between Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and the Moonsund Republic. Belarus, a strong trading partner of Estonia particularly, was admitted in 1994, and in 1996 Moonsund rejoined Estonia as a Federal State. Belarus and Lithuania participated in the 2002-2004 German Civil War on the side of the FRG, prompting talks for a unified military structure, which was approved by the Baltic Assembly in 2012. After the International League was formed in 2005, the members of the Baltic Union issued a joint application to join in 2007, and were admitted in 2008.


Great Nuclear War

In the Great Nuclear War, the capitals Minsk (Belorussia) Tallinn (Estonia) and Riga (Latvia) were hit, and the various nations were forced into disarray at best, and anarchal civil war at worst.


However, by 1980, each of the nations had effectively stabilized under democratic rule, and in 1982 the leaders of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Moonsund met in the Latvian capital, Jēkabpils. There a general pooling of resources was announced, and borders were agreed upon. Continued meetings between leaders sporadically occured over the next few years. In this time, relations were also established between Belarus and Lithuania, and by extension the other states, and Belarus began to trade with them greatly, also making use of Lithuania's ports.


In the 1991 the Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian leaders met in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius, and discussions turned to the establishment of an organisation to coordinate trade. Agreements and negotiations were made, and in 1992 the Baltic Union was formally created with four members, greatly and positively received. Indeed, over the next two years the Union proved extremely successful, and in 1994 Belarus, by this time greatly using Lithuania's sea access, made a formal application to join the Union, which was accepted. The coordination between states is also credited with assisting the 1996 Moonsund-Estonian reunification.

In 2005, the International League was formed by various nations as a solely democratic successor to the United Nations, and in 2007 the Baltic Union issued a joint application, and acceded in 2008, with a single state (though individual states of the Union reserve the right to send their own representative without withdrawing from the Union).



The lower legislature of the Baltic Union is the Baltic Assembly, made up of 90 members from 9 constituencies, whilst the upper body is the heads of state and/or government of each of the member states, who meet annually or in times of crisis.
