P.E.N
The Peace Enforcing Nations

The Peace Enforcing Nations have sworn to make another global war impossible and will use any means to prevent it. The P.E.N’s elite spies (the Peacekeepers) are tasked to thwart the evil machinations of the Secret World Order.

The Second World War ends. An agent of the Special Operations Executive (codename: ‘Shakespeare’) finds evidence that a secret organization has stolen substantial amounts of gold from both sides.

The Peace Enforcing Nations is formed to prevent future global devastation. Member states pledge to strip their military arsenals.

Countries that did not sign up to the P.E.N suffer a series of coups, revolutions and assassinations. The P.E.N denies that its intelligence service (the Peacekeepers) is responsible for this wave of regime change.

An attempt on the life of P.E.N Secretary General Mahatma Gandhi is foiled by the Peacekeepers. P.E.N. member states increase the intelligence budget.

P.E.N Secretary General Dag Hammarskjöld is killed in a plane crash. Diplomatic relations between member states start to break down.

The ‘Spy Wars’ begin with an escalation of defections and assassinations between the United Kingdom, the United States and the Soviet Union. All three powers are revealed to have been less than truthful about their disarmament programs.

The world appears to be on the brink of all-out war. Fortunately the Peacekeepers are able to avert disaster when they expose the S.W.O.R.D  – a secret organization that has been blackmailing governments and profiteering from conflict for centuries.

Liverpool-born musician J.W Lennon is sworn in as P.E.N Secretary General.  In his historic ‘Give peace a chance’ speech, Lennon is the first P.E.N leader to publically denounce the S.W.O.R.D.  His opponents dismiss him as a conspiracy theorist.
