The following page lists countries with nuclear capabilities in the world. According to the Community of Nations-enforced Treaty of Shanbally, the world is to aim for nuclear disarmament. This goal has never been achieved, but the treaty also regulates the possession of nuclear weapons, mandating that seven states - Estmere, Marolevia, Nuxica, Senria, Swetania, Valentir, and Werania - can legally maintain nuclear arsenals. Alongside these, there are a number of illegal nuclear weapon states, and a number of nuclear sharing agreements.

Nuclear sharing agreements

Euclean Community Nuclear Umbrella

As part of the comprehensive defence agreement that forms a key pillar of the Euclean Community, the nuclear states of Estmere and Werania effectively agree to shield the rest of the organisation with their own nuclear programs, effectively forming the EC nuclear umbrella. This has seen some criticism in Estmere and Werania, as, effectively, their taxpayers pay for the protection of the entire community. Suggestions have been made for a joint-EC nuclear program, but these have not reached fruition.

AFDC Nuclear Umbrella

Through Valentir, the AFDC falls under a nuclear umbrella. Valentir's own nuclear program has been largely reliant on contributions from other major AFDC members, such as Satucin and Cassier, leading to international onlookers decrying it as an AFDC program.

Criticism

The current system of CoN-mandated states has been criticized by some. Arguments have been made that the current system of mandated states overlooks the global south, and that it reinforces Euclean domination of world affairs. The CoN maintains that the end goal of the Treaty of Shanbally is complete nuclear non-proliferation.
