The Arucian Cooperation Organization is an intergovernmental regional organization, comprised of five member states, two associate member states, and seven observer states situated in the Western Arucian Sea and Eastern Arucian Sea.

Established in 1988 with the Treaty of Jameston, the Arucian Cooperation Organization promotes economic cooperation and integration between its member states, as well as to coordinate foreign policy among its members. To this end, the Arucian Cooperation Organization has established a common customs area in 1993, freedom of movement in 2003, and a common market in 2017 among its member states.



The Arucian Cooperation Organization has its roots in the aftermath of the Great War, when the Community of Nations established a political structure for the Arucian Federation, which comprised of former Gaullican possessions in the Arucian Sea and was jointly administered by Estmere, Etruria, Rizealand, and Werania. The Arucian Federation had a central government nominally overseeing nine autonomous districts, but in practice, the government of the Arucian Federation was weak and most powers were exercised by the districts.

In 1945, the four western districts of the Arucian Federation and Imagua merged into the United Provinces. Under the leadership of Pierre Voloix, the United Provinces assumed administration over the Assimas and New Accadia (present-day Bonaventura) following the end of the Solarian War. However, tensions between Imagua and the rest of the federation led to Imagua's expulsion in 1948, and subsequent tensions between Voloix and the Chloesian provinces led to the disintegration of the United Provinces by 1954.

Although the United Provinces ceased to exist, some mechanisms to facilitate cooperation between the former members of the United Provinces, such as the Central Bank of the Arucian which continued to provide a currency union among the former member states, continued to function. Furthermore, the newly-independent Sainte-Chloe and Carucere maintained extensive economic and political ties, which helped foster cooperation in the Golden Isles, although relations deteriorated as the oligarchic government in Carucere tried to maintain their grip on power.

In the aftermath of the Sugar Crash, economist Marques Pettygrove proposed the establishment of an Arucian economic union, believing that unifying the Arucian economies would help "protect the Arucian from complete economic collapse" in the event of another recession. However, Pettygrove's suggestions were largely ignored by Arucian governments during the 1970s, and would only be taken into consideration following the Recession of 1980 due to the economic consequences of the recession across the Arucian.

Establishment and early years

During the 1980s, the governments of Carucere, Imagua, Île d'Émeraude, and Sainte-Chloe began to negotiate the creation of an organisation to unite the Arucian economies. One of the things that they ruled out was a political union, seeing it as being too closely similar to the United Provinces.

Contemporary era



The head of the Arucian Cooperation Organization, or the Chairman, is a position that rotates every three years among the heads of government of the member states of the Arucian Cooperation Organization, with the current holder as of 2020 being TBD.

The responsibility of the Chairman of the Arucian Cooperation Organization is to help administer the day-to-day operations of the ACO (in a role analogous to that of a head of government), as well as represent the ACO at international events as the equivalent to a head of state.


As of 2020, there are five committees under the aegis of the Arucian Cooperation Organization, each devoted to a certain field of regional integration.

Committee Acronym Purpose
Committee for Finance and Planning CFP Coordinating financial policies among its members
Committee for Foreign and Community Relations CRÉC Coordinating the ACO's foreign policy
Committee for Trade and Economic Development CCDÉ Coordinating trade and economic development among its members
Committee for Legal Affairs CAJ Advises the members of the ACO on how to deal with regional crime and security
Committee for Budgetary Affairs CAB Providing a budget for the ACO


As of 2020, there are TBD agencies operating under the Arucian Cooperation Organization. While these organizations are autonomous, they all report back to, and receive funding from the Arucian Cooperation Organization.



As of 2020, the Arucian Cooperation Organization has five full members, seven observers, and two associate members participating in its institutions.

Associate members

As of 2020, there are two associate members of the Arucian Cooperation Organization. Associate members are regions under the direct control of another state within the Arucian region: thus, while they participate in most of the institutions of the Arucian Cooperation Organization, they are exempt from participating in certain areas, particularly the common market and customs union.
