Federal Union

Hide Profile

The Federal Union's mandate was to encourage the peoples of a group of states to unite permanently and form a central government. Such a structure could ensure a peaceful world, free from economic crises. Members of the Federal Union believed that ultimately only a World Government could ensure the survival of civilisation. The group was set up during the closing years of World War II. The Federal Union movement appears to have ceased around the late 1960s.
