The Union of Commonwealth Alliances, often abbreviated into UCA, is a military and economical alliance, whose current main purpose is safe guarding each nation's sovereignty and for a greater geopolitcal balance between its members and superpowers. The alliance was formed on the 9th November 1981, for mainly promoting trade between nations in the North Concordian Ocean and South Concordian Ocean. Though the insurence of mutual defence and joint military opperations quickly followed few years for the protection of the trade routes in the two regions. It was however, during the 90s the idea of UCA being an non-alignment and the promotion of diplomatic balance against super powers like South Hills and Great Morstaybishlia was promoted by the Norgsveltian prime minister Magrete Kverheim during the Meremaa Civil War, when she and many fellow UCA members of the time supported the Monarchists in that Civil War to limit Morstaybishlian influnce over the nation. During the 2000s and 2010s many nations either joined or strenghten their bonds with UCA, often by the behest of Norgsveldet with the 2010s being pushed by the than recent political figure Johanna Sverdrup.

In late 2013, the new government of Aivintis, the Federal Kritarchy, applied to join the Union of Commonwealth Alliances in order to strengthen their legitimacy and establish the base of future diplomacy, especially with nearby nations. They were accepted by the Secretary-General shortly afterwards, and have since maintained diplomatic ties with the UCA. The Aivintian ambassador to the UCA is Percy Randolph.
