The Zoroastrian League is an alliance of seventeen nations united by a shared state religion: Zoroastrianism. Founded in 1953 in an effort to keep the nations of the Middle East and North Africa out of the power-politics of the Cold War, the League originally consisted of Persia, Mesopotamia, Jordan, Syria, Anatolia, Egypt, Tripolitania and Algeria. Between 1953 and 1992, Indonesia (1955), Morocco (1959), Sudan (1961), Cyprus (1968), Malaysia (1969), Brunei (1970), Niger (1973), Chad (1977) and Kazakhstan (1992) joined the League. The seventeen nations closely co-operate in matters of trade and international politics, and the League's rules mandate that all member states must assist each other in times of war. Some political analysts see the Zoroastrian League as a counterpart to NATO, though these two organizations frequently co-operate, most notably during the Persian Civil War.
