Great Adonian War
With the Treaty of Klow signed on 18 July 1947 by the Allied Powers and Varkana established a basis for a "general association of nations under specific covenants for the purpose of affording mutual guarantees of political independence and territorial integrity to great and small states alike". This led to the inclusion of the AC Charter in the Treaty of Koblenz which would be signed in November 1947 after lengthy negotiations throughout that year.
The Treaty of Koblenz entered into force on 1 January 1948, formally establishing the Adonian Community. As construction of Areza would take several years to be completed, the first meetings of the Adonian Assembly, with ## nations represented, took place in PLACE, Ampuria, Volisania beginning on 1 January 1948. They continued to be held there until April 1954, when Areza was officially inaugurated. The Hitanese Foreign Minister, DUDE, was elected as the first AC Secretary-General.
With the spread of decolonization in the 1960s, the organization's membership saw an influx of newly independent nations.

The Adonian Assembly is a unicameral legislature. The Adonian Assembly has the powers to legislate on resolutions and treaties. Each member state is assigned one vote, but their vote is weighted based on the Schwartzberg's weighted voting system. The formula is (P+C+M)/3, where P is the nation's percentage of the total population of all AC members, C is that nation's percentage of the total contributions to the AC budget, and M, the nation's percentage of the total AC membership (which is the same for all members); divide that sum by 3 to get the average. This system avoids giving micro-states disproportionate influence while also avoiding giving a coalition of populous developing countries control over the Adonian Community, as might happen under one country, one vote.
The Adonian Secretariat is headed by the Adonian Secretary-General, assisted by a staff of international civil servants worldwide. It provides studies, information, and facilities needed by Adonian Community bodies for their meetings. It also carries out tasks as directed by the Adonian Assembly, the Adonian Economic Council, and other AC bodies. The Adonian Charter provides that the staff is to be chosen by application of the "highest standards of efficiency, competence, and integrity," with due regard for the importance of recruiting on a wide geographical basis. The Charter provides that the staff shall not seek or receive instructions from any authority other than the AC. Each AC member country is enjoined to respect the international character of the Secretariat and not seek to influence its staff. The Secretary-General alone is responsible for staff selection.
The Secretary-General's duties include helping resolve international disputes, administering peacekeeping operations, organizing international conferences, gathering information on the implementation of Adonian Assembly decisions, and consulting with member governments regarding various initiatives. Key Secretariat offices in this area include the Office of the Coordinator of Humanitarian Affairs and the Department of Peacekeeping Operations. The Secretary-General may bring to the attention of the Adonian Assembly any matter that, in their opinion, may threaten international peace and security.
Adonian Court of Justice
The Adonian Court of Justice (ACJ), located in Areza, is the primary judicial organ of the AC. Established in 1947 by the AC Charter, the Court began work in 1948 as the successor to PREDECESSOR COURT. The ACJ is composed of 15 judges who serve 9-year terms and are appointed by the Adonian Assembly; every sitting judge must be from a different nation.
It is based in the Internationales Gerichtsgebäude in Areza. The ACJ's primary purpose is to adjudicate disputes among states. The court has heard cases related to war crimes, illegal state interference, ethnic cleansing, and other issues. The ACJ can also be called upon by other AC organs to provide advisory opinions.
