The Totalitarian Union of Nations, also known by its initials as TUN, was an intermicronational organisation based around governments with a totalitarian, authoritarian, fascist, communist or otherwise strong single-party emphasis. Founded on May 2, 2009, it never reached major prominence within the Nations community and was disestablished on December 1, 2009.

History

The idea for the TUN was thought up by Daniel Anderson, then the Glorious Dictator-for-Life of the Glorious Dictatorial Republic of Andersonia. He wanted a union of nations that were without free, democratic basis, as was the case of the GDR at the time. Initially the Union was successful, but soon became inactive as other organisations (such as the World Assembly) took prominence. During the time the Union was active, it had the odd action of dating everything fifty-nine years behind what the true year was, for example the Union was founded and dissolved in the year 1950. The reason for this may be attributed to the romanticised backstory that the GDR was formed in a popular revolution in 1946 (this would place the GDR's foundation in 2005, three years before the true year of 1949/2008).

The Union was dissolved on December 1, 2009 after little activity for over two months. In its stead the Union was replaced by a dedicated GDR service, of which the February 1951 (2010) archive still remains.

Legacy

The end of the Union caused ripples within the GDR as well, and also came at a time when the popularity of Bebo began to decline. The failure of the Union may have had effects on the GDR, albeit delayed. The Union proved too weak against other more well-developed organisations such as the World Assembly and showed the lack of interest in less influential nations and their ideas.

The retroactive dating idea, however, has garnered some interest in the GDR's successor state, Sirocco, and it is rumoured the system could make a comeback.
