The Sangang Mutual Security Organization (Gaullican: Organisation de sécurité mutuelle de Sangang), commonly known as SAMSO, is an intergovernmental military alliance and collective defense agreement between the Republic of Senria, Most Serene Republic of Baekjeong, Republic of Chanda, and Kingdom of Kuthina.

SAMSO was formed by Senria and Baekjeong on September 19, 1981, with the signing of the Sangang Mutual Security Treaty following roughly a year of negotiations between the two nations and Kuthina, which considered membership in 1980-1981 and 1985-1987 but did not join at the time. Its formation came after the 1975 Coastal Crisis saw the Auspicious Republic of Xiaodong, a traditional geopolitical threat to all three countries, develop nuclear weapons and annex the Republic of Baishadao, which had been backed by Senria since 1957. Chanda was admitted in 1987, with Kuthina finally formally joining in 2007.

It is widely accepted that SAMSO is aimed primarily at containing Xiaodongese military influence and power projection, forming a cordon sanitaire of allied states along much of Xiaodong's land borders. As a result, it is widely regarded as a counterweight to the Rongzhuo Strategic Protocol Organisation, which was created by Xiaodong in response to SAMSO's foundation, in Coius. While there has been no direct conflict between SAMSO and ROSPO state forces, the two have engaged in a variety of proxy conflicts since their creation, most notably the conflict in Heijiang. While formally established as an equal alliance between the four states, it is also commonly agreed that Senria, by far the largest of the alliance's members, plays a de facto dominant role within the organization.

SAMSO has longstanding ties to the Bashurat Cooperation Organization, another Senrian-backed intergovernmental organization in western Coius with a broader purview.
