The North Vehemens Organization, often abbreviated as NVO, is a military alliance established by the Asteria Superior nations of Cassier, Eldmark, Marchenia, and Rizealand as agreed upon by the Treaty of Avelon. The four powers, as per this treaty, agreed to collaborate in order to establish a mutual defense alliance with significant cooperation on logistic, operational and intelligence fields.
The organization was created following the democratization of Marchenia and the Haillet's crisis, which brought the longstanding Cassien neutrality policy to an end. The NVO's core principle is the automatic and immediate defense of all signing parties in event of aggression to any of the signatories. Additionally, the NVO centralized strategic management of several aspects of the four nations' armed forces under a joint command.

Treaty of Avelon and foundation
Following the Haillet's Crisis, Cassier's neutral and isolationist foreign policy was put in check by its population, with many politicians calling for increased military cooperation with the nation's southern neighbors. Following the democratization of Marchenia, with whom Rizealand and Eldmark already had a mutual defense treaty regarding an eventual act of Chistovodian aggression, policymakers of the four nations began discussions regarding broader defense cooperation between the four countries.
In November 1993, based on the principles defined in the Treaty of Avelon of the same year, NVO's organisational structure began being defined. Initial broad clauses regarding cooperation between parties were further specified, establishing the Joint Allied Command, overseen by the four power's heads of state and composed by the chiefs of staff of each nations' armed force branches, and calling for complete standardization of calibers and overall munitions used by the alliance.

The NVO pursues active cooperation with the ECDTO, given significant overlap in ideals and concerns, primarily in relation to the AIS and Samorspi. The ECDTO is considered a global partner and NVO has participated in many international coalitions with it. Rizealand shares the naval bases of St. Roberts and Fleming with Estmere, and NVO provides UNREP and broader logistical aid to ECDTO vessels when needed.
NVO and ECDTO have numerous standardization agreements in calibers and part interoperability. Sales of military equipment between both sides are frequent. Though the two alliances are separate, international partnership on R&D, special status for sensible military exports and officer exchanges with the ECDTO and its associates make the two alliances diplomatically close.
Chistovodia is one of the NVO's two primary concerns in Asteria Superior, due to its nuclear arsenal and tensions with Marchenia. NVO keeps a stance of enforcing an armed peace with Chistovodia and preventing the expansion of the block through active interventionism. AIS presence in Ardesia was one of the primary catalysts for broader involvement from NVO in the conflict.
Soravia's aggressive policies were the main catalyst for the formation of NVO and it remains a large geopolitical concern.
NVO-AFDC relations are nuanced, given the block's non-binding military cooperation stance and historic divergences with Satucin. However, member states such as Valentir and the Imagua and the Assimas have good relations with NVO members, with Valentir having significant cooperation with NVO on matters of intelligence and technology cooperation. Recent tensions and divergences between the two blocks have increased due to NVO presence in the Ardesian conflict.
