Charleia joined the IMC or (International Micro Community) and left on April 5, 2020 because of conflicts with the Republic of Errick. President O'Halloran stated saying "Charleia joined the IMC looking for protection and support. Errick got us in two cold wars between the IMC and COMSOV. I feel its safe to say, Errick is a Power hungry tyrant who feels like he can do what ever he wants with the member states of the IMC, Errick really only cares about his own sovereignty." Charleia officially denounced Errick the same week, Charleia are members of COMSOV (Community of Sovereigns) and the ACDF (Anti-Communist Defense force).
