Map of nuclear armed states in Anterra. Blue: States known to possess nuclear weapons. Orange: States suspected of having a clandestine nuclear weapons program. Green: States sharing nuclear weapons or under nuclear umbrella. Red: States formerly possessing nuclear weapons.

The following is a list of states that have admitted the possession of nuclear weapons or are presumed to possess them, the approximate number of warheads under their control, and the year they tested their first weapon and their force configuration. This list is informally known in global politics as the "Nuclear Club". Accordingly this list may not be exhaustive, as it is possible to possess nuclear weapons without public admission. Nuclear weapons were first developed in the early 1940's, and first used in war by Tiperyn during the Great Kesh War, devastating the Kodeshi city of Wujin in 1959.

Agrana y Griegro

Agrana y Griegro is known to possess nuclear weapons for national defence, the total stockpile is unconfirmed as of yet.


Akiteiwa maintains an unconfirmed stockpile of nuclear weapons, with their development reportedly centring around the needs of national defence.


The Austrasian Riche maintains an arsenal of strategic and tactical nuclear warheads. Riche policy on nuclear weapons is set out in the Hweitsberg Edicts. The 1st Edict decreed that Austrasia would pursue the development of a nuclear arsenal for the purpose of defending the integrity of the Riche & the rights of its citizens against aggression from the near-abroad. Subsequently, the 2nd Edict decreed that while counter-value targeting was contrary to natural law a free state could justly employ nuclear weapons against tyranny. Consistent with the Hweitsberg Edict Austrasia has forsworn the development of nuclear-equipped cruise or ballistic missiles with ranges exceeding 1,500 km; but retains a large and varied arsenal of battlefield nuclear weapons and intermediate range strategic weapons for leadership targeting.


Brigantica is reported to maintain an unconfirmed stockpile of nuclear weapons for national defence.


Chezzetcook maintains a dual-level nuclear dyad employing aircraft delivered gravity bombs and missiles, as well as submarine and surface ship launched missiles. The current arsenal includes XXX warheads split between the official nuclear force, the Force de dissuasion, and the unofficial Force de Frappe of the Marine Nationale. Official policy on the use of nuclear weapons requires presidential authorization for use, and designates the force de dissuasion as exclusively for defense of the home islands against foreign attack or invasion. Because the unofficial force de frappe is not explicitly listed in the nuclear policy the Marine Nationale has more freedom in employment, though still requires presidential authorization.

According to official nuclear policy, the force de dissuasion is responsible for Chezzetcook's strategic response and consists of 80 Modèle 94 missiles which are deployed among the four Triomphant class submarines, with one submarine on strategic deterrence patrol at all times. In addition the force de dissuasion maintains approximately 400 Modèle 79 warheads in both active and inactive reserve status. As the explicit and exclusive role of the force de dissuasion is as a second-strike option for defense of the Chezzetcook Home Islands, the force is guided under a no first use policy which considers invasion of the home islands as equivalent to a nuclear strike. The force de dissuasion operates on a countervalue concept to act as a deterrent.

The force de frappe are the nuclear weapons employed in a tactical and pre-strategic role by the Marine Nationale under authorization of the president. These weapons serve the dual role as a nuclear "warning shot" as a limited response to events or circumstances that may escalate to strategic nuclear use, or in wartime when "regular use" is authorized as tactical weapons at the discretion of on-the-spot commanders. force de frappe weapons are explicitly counterforce in nature and are considered different from strategic weapons such as the force de dissuasion in terms of both employment and response. The Chezzetcook government has a policy acknowledging that the use of tactical nuclear weapons against legitimate military targets will not be responded with full scale strategic exchange, but will be matched in kind. Weapons under this category include 180 Modèle74 gravity bombs in both active and inactive reserve, as well as 350 Modèle 88 tactical warheads. The Modèle 88 warhead can replace conventional high explosive warheads on the Modèle 91 air to surface missile, the Modèle 99 air (A), ship (B) and submarine (C) launched cruise missiles, as well as heavy weight submarine torpedos and the Modèle 87 anti-submarine weapon. Though only the Modèle 91 is regularly employed with the Modèle 88 warhead.

Chezzetcook maintains an active nuclear weapons test zone in the Boreal ocean around the Petit Îlot Weapons Test Range located 160nm West of Chezzetcook.


Cipertine has reported developed and maintains an unconfirmed stockpile of nuclear weapons.


Gardarike has a nuclear posture based on a survivable command structure and a dependable second-strike capability, while simultaneously targeting enemy command and control links and military installations rather than economic targets or enemy units in the field. In addition it has adopted a no first-use policy against non-nuclear states.

The primary component of Gardarike's nuclear arsenal is its SF-3 "Hörmung" Intermediate-range ballistic missile force. These missiles have a variable number of warheads of various yields depending on different mods. The missiles are fielded in fixed missile silos, mobile armoured trains, barges travelling along Gardarike's many rivers and a large number are stored in underground caves for dispersal in times of crisis.

As a part of its commitment to the PAC nuclear umbrella and a means of carrying out limited nuclear strikes as a show of force, Gardarike also possesses air-deliverable nuclear gravity bombs. These have greater strategic flexibility than the missile force as they have a Variable yield of 0.5, 10 or 190 kilotons as well as having the possibility of rapid re-basing. Like their missile counterparts they are highly accurate and can penetrate the earth to a depth of a few metres. These bombs are deliverable by Medium bombers with the possibility of aerial refueling to strike targets in distant parts of Artemia.

In 1993, two of these bombs were accidentally released when a Fálki fighter-bomber crashed in Northern Samotkhe. Despite a thorough search, the weapons were never recovered.

Gardarike also has a small arsenal of tactical nuclear weapons, predominantly for Anti-ballistic missile purposes and naval combat. A few are believed to be air-deliverable neutron bombs for use in a rumoured "warning shot".


Jungastia possess a significant nuclear triad. Originating with Filha (Daughter) - the first nuclear bomb capable of being used in combat - Jungastia has consistently led development of Nuclear weapons technology.

Currently the Jungastian Triad is made of up of M50 ICBMs with an almost global range and yields of between 1 megaton and 35 megatons, with 50% of the missile force being MIRV adapted. In addition the Air Force maintains a significant stockpile of gravity bombs, with at least 20 in permanent readiness at any one time. The Armada real, through theDefensor class submarine fleet maintains a permanent oceanic force of SM60 SLBMs with at least two submarines on patrol at any one time.

Controversially - both domestically and internationally - Jungastia does not maintain a No First Use policy, inline with its long term policy of armed neutrality and homeland defence.


Kaya possesses and maintains a nuclear bi-ad, with air and sea launched weapon systems. Kayase nuclear weapons are overwhelmingly strategic weapons with practically no tactical level weapons. Kaya maintains a no first use policy.


Kodeshia maintains an unconfirmed stockpile of nuclear weapons, with their development reportedly around the needs of national defence against the threat of Tiperyn and Selengeria. Kodeshia's arms programs are reportedly centred around the needs of national security. Kodeshia tested its first nuclear weapon in 5 November 1968, based mostly on its own research. It was developed as a deterrent to potential invasion from both Tiperyn and Selengeria. As the first nation to face the threat of nuclear attack Kodeshia sought the weapon for its own security and to achieve a balance of power. Kodeshia is expected to have developed a nuclear triad consisting of the six conventionally powered Saijing-class ballistic missile submarines which are expected to be replaced by four Hujing-class nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines. Additionally Kodeshi Air Force operates bombers with a nuclear strike capability and it has been reported Kodeshia possesses land based intercontinental ballistic missile systems (ICBM).


Litania developed a domestic military program in response to the use of nuclear weapons during the Great Kesh War. With increasing distance between Modrovia and the rest of the League states, Litania took over primary Artemean nuclear deterrence duties. This has resulted in a wide deployment of Litanian nuclear weapons across several League states, as well as a policy of conditional release of nuclear weapons to local control "in the event of extreme emergency". This policy has been interpreted differently over time, with this initially being interpreted as releasing control only in the event of a loss of contact with Litanian military high command. Modern interpretation has instead seen this as in the event of a possible loss of contact with Litanian high command, effectively placing some Litanian nuclear weapons under foreign control. This is a point of domestic political contention, and is sometimes subject to change depending on the current domestic climate.

The Litania Republic follows the nuclear triad model, with air launched, ground launched, and submarine launched weapons all being kept in use by strategic forces. As a legal matter both domestic and foreign nuclear weapons, as well as all chemical and biological agents, are classified as strategic arms. This means that Litania maintains chemical, biological, and tactical nuclear weapons as being on the same level as the use of strategic nuclear weapons. While the state maintains a no-first-use policy, the use of any weapons on Litanian troops, or the use of these weapons on any League state, legally authorizes the use of Litanian strategic weapons.


Although confirmed to have conducted or otherwise participated in a series of nuclear tests, Mero-Curgovina deliberately maintains ambiguity regarding whether or not it maintains a nuclear arsenal. The Commonwealth observes this policy regarding all projects it considers 'special purpose,' including chemical and anti-satellite weapons. Experts in nuclear proliferation believe it is likely that Mero-Curgovina is nuclear capable, but only through gravity delivery.


Modrovia is publicly known to possess nuclear weapons under the Modrovian government’s nuclear deterrence policies. Despite this, the nuclear capabilities of Modrovia remain unknown to the international community with suspicion that it possesses limited quantities of high yield strategic weapons and a moderate quantity of low yield tactical weapons.

The Modrovian government and armed forces maintain a ‘no first use’ policy, limiting Modrovia’s usage of nuclear weapons purely for retaliatory operations due to the “social and political implications of the utilization of nuclear weapons” (Modrovian Nuclear Defense Decree, pg. 7).

Under the Modrovian Nuclear Defense Decree, Modrovia is known to maintain a vast array of missile defense systems such as low yield anti-ballistic missile systems to intercept missiles launched by Modrovia’s nuclear capable neighbors.


Ringerike has a declared nuclear arsenal consisting of both tactical and strategic weapons operated as a nuclear triad, however the only strategic component is in the form of land based ICBMs, the Navy operates nuclear armed SLCMs and both the Navy and Air Force operate tactical nuclear gravity bombs and derived weapon systems such as depth charges. The Army maintains a small stockpile of 155mm nuclear artillery shells, however their use is seen as limited and their numbers are small, it is also reported that the army has the capacity to mount nuclear warheads on their ground launched missile systems. The Nuclear Program has it's roots in a defense white paper that suggested that the most reasonable way to guarantee national security while reducing the manpower of the armed forces was to develop and posses nuclear weapons.


Rovsnoska has been accused of attempts to develop a nuclear weapons program, but no solid evidence has been reported. Grand Marshal Lucijan Perica has denied any Rovsnoski attempts at nuclear weapons development. With multiple active nuclear power sites and an abundant source of uranium, Rovsnoska has been deemed as both capable of producing nuclear weapons and possibly in the secret development of them. In 2000 Rovsnoska sold its nuclear arsenal of 55 nuclear warheads produced by the UPRZ to a joint denuclearization pact that included Gardarike, Modrovia, and various LoFN members. However Sources within the Rovsnoski government have reported that there were also 30 undocumented nuclear warheads of which Rovsnoska retained, however no solid evidence has proven this to be true.


In 1993, Two nuclear warheads were released on Samot soil while in transport from Gardarike to an undisclosed location. Fortunately, they did not detonate. When authorities arrived upon the scene, the nuclear weapons were not found. In conclusion, Samotkhe does not currently possess nuclear capabilities, however someone in Samotkhe does.


Tiperyn developed the first nuclear weapons during Great Kesh War as part of a weapons research program motivated by the desire retain independence and sovereignty. Tiperyn was the first nation to use its nuclear weapons in war, with its use being against the Kodeshia in the Great Kesh War, in which it destroyed the city of Wujin in 1959.


Zahava ensures peace and safety of the Avalonian continent, and world by having an absurd nuclear policy that is basically the covenant from HALO. If Zahava will be affected by a nuclear strike then the entire world will be cleansed by multiple MIRV launches all over the globe against friend, foe, and neutral, major and minor nations alike.
