When the League of Arab States declared bankruptcy in 2109, the EEI claimed their former territories and engaged into a proxy war against DOMO. The EEI lost, but the war crippled DOMO financially.
The western provinces of the New Russian Republic of States were longtime allies of the EEI. After the 2112 food riots at Yeltsingrad, the westernmost provinces joined the EEI, along with the OIP of Pasternak. This was the first time when an OIP joined an alliance independently from its own region, which joined the DOMO.
