Aligned against Iran and its allies since the 2020s the Gulf Coalition began life as a military pact arrayed against a common enemy, but steadily became something more as further deals and agreements were signed and ratified. The survivors of World War III have since undergone transition to fragile democracies and now present a united front to the rest of the world, but they remain backwards socially and have very little influence on the world stage due to lack of economic, military or political power, riven by internal divides – the UN occupies Iraq and Yemen in order to prevent potential unrest, whilst those of North Africa have been ‘charitably’ bankrolled by the European Union so as to prevent unchecked migration into Europe.
The Coalition has been able to survive thanks to its massive investments during the 21 century on technology. Their investigation on water decontamination and developing of desalinization technologies kept money rolling in. Moreover, space technologies have been developing in the UAE and Saudi Arabian industrial compounds which have provided cheap craft, colonization modules, and satellites for the African countries, specially to the EAF. Dubai's Spaceport was one of the more advanced and busiest in the world between the 2090s and the 2120's before Mombasa's Orbital Elevator was inaugurated.
At its zenith during the 2030s the Coalition had 14 full members and 4 partners for cooperation.
All of the current members are also founding members, including Mesopotamia that was Iraq at the signing.
- Saudi Arabia
Political and societal collapse or simple dissidence caused this states to secede from the treaty:
- Sudan (strategic partner for cooperation).
- Turkey (strategic partner for cooperation).
