|Named after||Oriental Ocean|
|Motto||Ex Oriente, Securitas|

|Purpose||Defensive Alliance, Economic and Scientific Cooperation|
|Headquarters||EOS Island, Orioni|
The Entente of Oriental States or EOS is a major multinational alliance consisting of geographically close states bordering the Oriental Ocean in Europa, Thalassa, Marenesia, Argis, Alharu and Aurelia. Founded in June 2006, the main purpose of the organization is the ensured protection of its membership in the case of aggression from a non-member, considering such an act to be an attack upon all. It is also an economic and scientific cooperation umbrella for the overall geographic area.
In 1954 the Europan Commercial Alliance was formed. The ECA was one of the first international organisations on Eurth to be based on the principles of supra-nationalism. It started the process of integration which led to the Entente of Oriental States.
The Charter of the Entente of Oriental States is the founding treaty of the Entente of Oriental States. Adopted in 2006, it stipulates that the alliance is “open to all nations of Eastern Europa.” This clause was later expanded to include all countries bordering the Oriental Ocean. Initially, in 2006, there were six founding members. There was a continual increase in membership during the first half of the 21st Century.
The Entente serves three main functions. First and foremost: mutual defence. Outside forces had taken advantage of inter-Oriental conflict, toppling government and swallowing independent nations. EOS managed to halt this trend by establishing a clear perimeter. Second, EOS resolves the endemic problem of security and, in particular, the problem of alternating Oriental, Buranian, and Thalassan antagonism. Transforming countries from periodic enemies into steadfast allies is a recipe for lasting peace. Finally, EOS guarantees a joint engagement in regional security, precisely what the Long War, Thalassan War, and their confusing aftermath failed to do.
In June 2020, the Entente voted to separate its non-military activities into a separate and independent civilian organisation, forming the Civil Administration of Oriental States (CAOS). This internal organisational change includes the administration, development and science institutions such as the ARTHA participation.

Since its foundation in 2006 the EOS has added many new member states to the original set of six founding countries. The largest growth occurred in 2017 with the Charter amendment that established the possibility for observers to join. Observer status is a privilege granted to non-members to give them an ability to participate in the organization's activities. Observer status is granted to states bordering the Oriental Ocean that have an interest in the EOS's activities. Observers generally have a limited ability to participate in the EOS, lacking the ability to vote or propose resolutions.
Full members enjoy all the rights and responsibilities of the mutual defence alliance. These are described in the Charter of the Entente of Oriental States. Members have the full ability to participate in the EOS, with the ability to vote and propose resolutions. There are also included in certain sensitive discussions where observers are asked to temporary leave the discussion.

Several countries have observer status, which entitles them to express their opinion and give advice but denies them voting rights. There are numerous observers who are prospective candidates for future membership of the Entente of Oriental States. None of these states have started accession negotiations nor formally submitted an application for membership. All of these states are eligible to request member status. Certain states have chosen, for various reasons, not to become full members or observer of EOS. Some states have integrated with EOS to different extents according to their circumstances. Some states participate directly in the single market, some do so via bilateral treaties, and others have specific agreements with EOS and neighbouring countries. Mantella was suspended following the start of the Civil War and the use of military force against civilians of Cristina.

The Entente of Oriental States (EOS) has initiated a variety of programmes rooted in the bilateral relationships between its member nations. These initiatives are uniquely structured, with each being based on individual bilateral agreements and understandings among the partner countries. Members of EOS are granted the flexibility to determine the depth and breadth of their involvement in these programmes. This flexible approach allows each nation to tailor its participation to best suit its national interests and capacities. Furthermore, the EOS maintains an open and inclusive stance towards collaboration. Beyond its member states, the EOS also explores opportunities to engage with third-party nations. Such nations, although not formal members of the Entente, may be approached and invited to participate in specific activities or programmes under the EOS umbrella. This proactive outreach fosters a broader spirit of cooperation and partnership in the region and contributes to the dynamic nature of the EOS's collaborative efforts.
The military framework of the Entente of Oriental States is organized into a tiered hierarchy, reflecting its expansive regional presence and the diversity of its operational mandates. The multifaceted nature of these military programmes underscores the EOS's commitment to maintaining a cohesive, modern, and adaptable defence posture in the face of evolving regional challenges.
The Operations section underlines the Entente of Oriental States's commitment to establishing a cohesive regional presence. With Joint Commands and Sectors strategically positioned across distinct geographical locales, this arm of the EOS ensures an organized, rapid, and effective response to any potential threats or challenges. Detailed within are the command structures and their respective locations, painting a vivid picture of the EOS's vast operational footprint.
- Joint Command Alharu. Located in: Khewet, Hemahat
- Joint Command Europa. Located in: Alaghon, Tamurin
- Joint Command Marenesia. Located in: Ponaiga, Safiloa
- Joint Command Thalassa. Located in: Sunset City, Sunset Sea Islands

Integration is evidence of the EOS's vision of fostering deeper cooperation and coordination amongst its member states. More than just a conglomerate of defence forces, the EOS strives for seamless unity in its approach to regional security. This section delves into initiatives designed to facilitate unified communication, intelligence sharing, and collaborative defence programs, all geared towards presenting a united front against common adversaries.
- EOS Anti-ballistic Missile Program: An initiative started in September 2006 to bolster the region's defences against ballistic threats.
- Communications: An initiative dedicated to ensuring seamless and secure communication across EOS military operations.
- Joint Intelligence Agency: A centralized body that gathers, analyses, and disseminates intelligence pertinent to the EOS's security and strategic interests.
- Pooling of Military Forces: Launched in July 2006, this initiative encourages the exchange and collaboration of military personnel amongst member nations.
The Transformation segment speaks to the EOS's forward-looking approach to defence. Recognizing the dynamic nature of modern warfare and security challenges, EOS emphasizes continuous improvement, adaptation, and innovation. Here, the focus is on standardizing procedures, educating the next generation of military leaders, and investing in research and development. This commitment ensures that the EOS remains not just reactive but proactive, ready to shape the future of regional defence.
- Standardisation: Efforts to standardize military equipment, protocols, and procedures to enhance interoperability amongst EOS member states.
- Defence College: An institution dedicated to the education and training of the EOS's military leadership, fostering a common doctrine and shared understanding of defence strategies.
- Research and Development: This initiative emphasizes the continuous innovation and development of defence technologies, ensuring the EOS remains at the forefront of military advancements.

In June 2020, a significant reorganisation took place within the Entente of Oriental States that aimed to streamline its operations and delineate its military and non-military activities. The Entente Quorum, the decision-making body of the EOS, unanimously voted in favour of segregating its non-military endeavours, leading to the establishment of the Civil Administration of Oriental States (CAOS).
This creation of CAOS was not merely an internal reshuffling, but a strategic move to ensure greater efficiency and focus on specific domains. CAOS became responsible for a wide spectrum of civilian-oriented tasks and institutions under the EOS banner. This independent civilian organisation took under its purview the various administrative, developmental, and scientific functions that were previously integrated with the EOS.
One notable institution that transitioned to CAOS's administration is the ARTHA participation, among others. By channelling such functions under CAOS, EOS aimed to enhance the effectiveness of its civilian initiatives while ensuring that its primary military objectives remained undiluted and robust. This clear demarcation of roles between EOS and CAOS underscores the Entente's commitment to both defence and development in the Oriental region.
