Have you seen the well to do
Up and down Park Avenue
On that famous thorough fare
With their noses in the air
High hats and narrow collars
White spats and lots of dollars
Spending every dime
For a wonderful time.

- "Puttin' on the Ritz," Irving Berlin

The Philosopher Group, Philosophers or just, The Group, are a secretive cabal of the world's elite, democrats, politicians, and multinational corporate entities, who wish to up-end the current Fascistic-Communistic dominated world order and reinstate democracy, albeit one with oligarchical tendencies. They channel the democratic and oligarchic ideologies of Ancient Athens and seek to reinstate a democracy similar to this around the world. They are the only major power outside the Axis and Comintern blocs, and along with the Axis research division turned rogue terrorist group known as Task Force Chimera form the New World Bloc, a third, albeit not ideologically homogeneous, bloc dedicated to up-ending the current global situation. They deploy a variety of contractors, mercenaries and loyalists, coupled with some of the most advanced conventionally deployed technology in the world, and a vast fleet of drones, supplemented by the elite forces of the School of New Athens and their advanced air forces and naval units.

For now, the Group waits, lurking in the shadows. They utilise neutral and isolated nations such as the Shahdom of Iran, the Kingdom of Tonga and the Swiss Confederation to train and equip their elite forces and prepare for their eventual strikes on London, Paris and Washington. Their agents are particularly active in the United Republic of American Citizens and Commune of Britain, the lands from which many of their members originate from.

Behind the Scenes

  • The Philosopher Group is inspired by conspiracy theories surrounding the elite members of society such as banking cartels, political oligarchs, the Military-Industrial Complex, the Bilderberg Group, the Freemasons and the New World Order.
  • The Philosopher Group also draws some inspiration from the Philosophers from Metal Gear Solid & the Enclave from the Fallout series, being secretive groups composed of many different wealthy & influential people and organizations.
