The Coalition of Independent Countries (CIC) was a mutual defense treaty between Imperial German Union, Empire of Japan and it GEACOP nations, and later the United Republics of Brazil in existence during the Cold War. The CIC powers were united by their opposition to the Triple Entente. They described their goals as breaking the hegemony of plutocratic-capitalist powers and defending civilization from further imperialism.
The founding treaty was established under the initiative of the German Union and signed on 24 September 1965 in Berlin. The CIC was the military counterpart for the Council for Industrial Economic Co-operation (CIECo), the economic organization for the CIC countries.
At its zenith during the Global War, the Axis presided over territories that occupied large parts of Europe, South America, and Asia. The war ended in 1993 with the defeat of the Coalition powers and the dissolution of their alliance. As in the case of the League of Nations, membership of the CIC was fluid, with some nations switching sides or changing their degree of military involvement over the course of the war.
