A federation is a group of countries that have agreed to cooperate in defence related matters. Generally they share military resources and help each other in case of war. The assistance given during war is limited to the participation of the air force in defending a member country. Members of federations should realize that they can lose many of their aircraft during such military support operations and use thousands of missiles at a large cost. There are rules that govern the federations and all members must agree. Some issues are decided by voting. Any user can start a new federation and invite friends to join. Joining federations is always by invitation.
To join a federation, the chairman of that federation has to invite you to become a member. Usually federations are setup by groups of players who know each other or met by playing.
Up to 25 countries can be members of a single federation. You can start a new federation or join an existing one. Click on "Federations" in the navigation bar or on the menu at the top of the page.
