From their announcement:
DWCA01 Covenant of Antarctica Naval Battle Group
The enigmatic Covenant of Antarctica (CoA) is the world's youngest and most unorthodox nation. Officially established in 1857 by its founder, the eccentric Britannian scientist-aristocrat Lord Barnabas Draynes Sturgeon, the Covenant has caused seismic shifts in global politics and scientific advancement in the few short years of its existence. The Covenent's military forces are small, but thanks to their extraordinary grasp of technology, they command offensive power out of all proportion to their numbers. The divisions of their military, known as War Fleets, contain land, naval and air elements which work in concert like a well-oiled machine. There are currently thought to be some fifteen War Fleets in operational state, although several more are thought to be maintained as reserves. Antarctican war machines are not radically different in function to any other nations'. Their differences lie in their quality. With superior materials technology and artificial crewmen, they are simply capable of operating at a much greater degree of efficiency than the equivalent machineries of other nations.
