The 33rd Echelon was an alliance created shortly after bloc 9 (the hacker smacker). What was previously the N.K.G.B was changed over night for security reasons to the 33rd Echelon. The alliance was created by Taliban, the bloc 8 superpower (8000k gdp). Unfortunately, after attempting a redemption kill on Biji Kurdistan of the Comintern alliance, Taliban was declared war on by the Comintern alliance and was facing a two-front war. Since its beginnings, the 33rd echelon was a humanitarian superpower. We had the lowest taxes and most benefits out of all alliances. We easily repulsed wave after wave of Comintern heathens.
