The Alliance of Wald (ヴァルト盟約同盟, Varuto Meiyaku Doumei?, lit. Wald Pledge Alliance), shortened to the Alliance, is a group of states located along the peaks of the continent's southern mountains. Its capital is Capella.
The Alliance was the setting for Mist.
Their national symbol is an axe-bearing mountain goat.
The Alliance prefers coffee over tea as their hot beverage of choice.
Owing to the multiple countries between the mountains that constituted the Alliance, there were several ethnic groups that composed the nation's population. The largest of them were the blue-eyed Caerulea. Many of the people were Caerulea with silver and golden hair and blue eyes.
Wald's national language is what would be considered modern English (although it is unknown if they call the language by that name), much like the rest of the continent. While they speak the same language as San Magnolia, Giad, and Roa Gracia, there are dialectal differences between the nations.
The Strike Package's 1st Armored Division visited the alliance after their operation in the United Kingdom, the officially stated purpose of a joint interrogation of the Merciless Queen was merely a guise for the unit's R&R.
They remain neutral with the Federacy, but support their endeavors against the Legion through the Eighty-Sixth Strike Package. As compensation for letting the Alliance take part in the interrogation of Zelene Birkenbaum despite their absence in her capture operation, as well as for all of the information and technology they have received from the Federacy and the United Kingdom, the Alliance was tasked with developing the Armée Furieuse and training the Strike Package in its use.
They remain neutral with the Republic, however, they have their own opinions about them. Lieutenant General Bel Aegis describes the nation vile, and they couldn't treat them too coldly because they might yield to the mad country in the far west. She hopes the Republic would reflect on their foolishness for neglecting to collect their dead from the battlefield or sending their most superior soldiers deep into Legion territory.
After the large-scale offensive, the Alliance and the two other countries agreed that abandoning the Republic after they had acknowledged them as survivors would be inhumane.
They remain neutral with the United Kingdom. They wanted the United Kingdom to share the Legion´s tactical algorithm as the United Kingdom developed the Mariana Model, upon which the Legion´s artificial intelligence was based.
Ever since the Alliance’s founding, it had upheld a policy of universal conscription, and so men and women alike were conscripted. Their nature as staunch advocates of armed neutrality hadn’t changed at all.
The Alliance was the first nation to develop and deploy the polypedal armored weapons known as the Feldreß. Years ago, this state’s mountain denizens used these weapons to stave off fifteen tank divisions sent by the Empire. And they remained stalwart even when faced with the threat of the Legion.
The Alliance's mountainous geography provides a significant advantage against the forces of the Legion, as most units are either too unwieldy to scale the steep cliffs, or too light to pose a threat. Pillboxes are scattered throughout the mountain range to provide support or hold the line until the main force sortied. The Alliance's military consists of exoskeleton armored infantry and the highly mobile Mk. 6 Stollenwurm; capable of swiftly traversing the mountainous terrain.
They developed an anti-radar weapon that forms clouds of metal-foil particles that blind the Rabe and the Ameise and disrupt the Legion’s communications.
One hundred and sixty years ago, the Alliance granted its citizens voting rights, shifting their council from an oligarchical position to a democratic one.
Capella is the capital of the Alliance.
Hesturn is the second capital of the Alliance.
