Long before the Pendulum wars, the Coalition of Ordered Governments (COG) existed only as an obscure world-government philosophy in the mind of the fanatic socialist, Alexiy Desipich. Its austere canon was based on eight guiding values: ORDER, DILIGENCE, PURITY, LABOR, HONOR, LOYALTY, FAITH, and HUMILITY.
As the Pendulum Wars continued, however, the COG grew into a legitimate, albeit a minor, political party.
After Emergence Day, Cog leaders were the only ones willing to take the necessary steps to survive the epic devastation. They ratified the Fortification Act, wich established martial law and transformed Jacinto Plateau into an unassailable fortress.
The Cog's methods proved wildly popular, despite the fact that they temporarily abridged civil rights.
- Only under the protection of the COG will humanity prevail!
