The strongest world!

So, who do you think is the strongest world in the spiral? Before you answer let me just tell you. Its Captain Avery's pirate republic. Why you may ask? Well they don't have any military power really, no law or defense and are a brand new independent world in the spiral. But what they do have is allies. Remember that quest with the pillars in VA, the ones that states the Spiral Powers? Well 3 out of 4 of them are allied with SI, not to mention Polaris which as we know has Napoleguin back. So, who are they allied with, when did they ally with them, and why does this make them the strongest spiral world? All shall be answered today! (and some questions like why isn't Wizard City the strongest?)

So, who is SI allied with? To put it simply, Marleybone, Valencia, Monquista and Polaris. We have some big names backing SI already.

When did they ally with them? During the Party Barge quest, you help ambassadors from those places in the spiral. Since we helped them they would put in a good word for us. Meaning most likely they would ally themselves with us.

This makes them the strongest world simply because if you Attack SI you attack the rest of the major powers. This also would prevent places like VA from attacking SI for being pirates due to their treaty.

This all means powerful places like Wizard city can't touch SI, despite having the power to take it over. In war there is a simple rule, don't anger to many people at once. In other words try to keep the people you are fighting to a minimum. You may have heard the term a war on 2 fronts. Thats bad because you have to fight and defend 2 places at once rather than one. In this case you would be fighting 4 (powerful) worlds at once. Now lets look at some facts about the worlds backing Skull Island.

Monquista: It doesn't have the most powerful navy, but it is rich,and has plenty of influence.

Marleybone: A powerful Navy and army. Its lands reach far and it is both feared and respected.

Polaris: Currently rebuilding, but with Napoleguin back, they have strategy on their side.

Valencia: A powerful Navy and army. Also very very advanced in technology.

So what does this mean? It means the 2 most powerful Navies are backing Skull Island. So how would a war play out? I think Monquista would provide supplies. Marleybone and Valencia attack and defend and Polaris provide strategy and reinforcements.

So who could attack SI and succeed? No one, Dragonspyre possibly, but they are long gone.

And finally, what does this mean for the rest of the spiral? Really nothing, for now at least. Avery isn't interested in conquest, but if there was to be another Spiral wide war, things would get interesting. Most likely SI would remain neutral. And if it was a new Napoleguin war, again neutrality. Avery is smart and shrewd, he won't anger anyone, and will do his best not to pick sides. Really the lesson here is a world/person alone might be the most powerful strength wise, but if someone has a lot of good allies, they are just as strong if not stronger.  Skull island isn't strong alone, its strong because it has the strongest worlds backing it. And finally a little bonus content, the list of spiral alliances! (only confirmed ones, individuals dont count, which does include the council of light!)
1. Skull Island, Marleybone, Valencia, Polaris, Monquista.
2. Marleybone and Mooshu.
3. Valencia and Mooshu.
4. Wizard City and  Grizzleheim.
So, thats the currently aligned powers. Skull island, you could say is aligned with mooshu due to ally sharing, but thats a stretch. And in Valencia we see ambassadors from different worlds, but there is no real confirmation they are in an alliance. Thats all for now! Cya in the spiral!
