The European Trade Organization (ETO) was an European organization created after the Great War in July 1919.[1] The ETO's purpose was to boost the economies of post-war Europe and to give the defeated nations the economic aid to rebuild and rejoin the world community. The ETO consisted of every nation in Europe except for Russia, which saw the organization as "anti-imperialist" and completely isolated itself from the world.

History

Following Germany's surrender in the Great War, the Treaty of Versailles called for the creation of the European Trade Organization, which was to encourage that all European nations work together to establish lasting peace and to avoid potential future conflicts that would be even more devastating than the Great War.

The ETO became one of the key aspects of the Treaty of Versailles, allowing for absolute cooperation between the European nations, even among former enemies of the Great War. This humanitarian outcome allowed countries such as Germany in 1930 to establish democratic institutions and prevent fascistic elements, such as the National Socialists from coming into power. In the decades following its foundation, the ETO consisted of every European nation as official members and ushered a new era of prosperity for the continent that would last until December 1949, when the Chimera broke through the Red Curtain.

The ETO also established the United European Defense and the Military Defense Commission to better research the Chimera and to protect Europe.
