The Latvian Soccer Dogs were an alliance originally formed with the aim to "help protect nations and individuals from larger countries and alliances that LSD rhetoric claimed to be satellites of the World Police", who allegedly "sought to control them". Originally created between the nations of Sassari and New Sovia, it later included other nations such as Adina and Unitas - before all nations but Unitas left resulting in a situation where functionally only individuals remained. The official goal of LSD was to "provide like-minded individuals a place where they would no longer have to be part of nations whom they felt were dedicated to repressing their freedom, and to provide new economic and defensive opportunities for its members." The alliance was open to any individual or nation who wished to join, and they planned to "increase trade links and infrastructure between the nations".
Assault against LSD
On the 7th of September 2019, the Entente and SATO launched a joint operation to disable LSD's only vault, Hotel California, despite there having been no defense from LSD, multiple members were declared pearl on sight and one pearl was upgraded, after leaks by the UDF occurred. These leaks happened to accidentally dox and reveal real-life photos of LSD members, leading to their quick deletion by Icenian authorities after this was pointed out to them. The leaks were used to "accuse" LSD of plotting to destroy Icenia in a civil war.
War in Laconia
The remnants of the Latvian Soccer Dogs after the Entente's attack fled to Laconia's capital city, Mt. Doom. In gratitude, ashnwill gave Laconian oligarch FRESH_candy bypass permissions to the reinforcements that the late LSD vault was constructed with. After several weeks, Laconia felt that things had calmed enough to make a dash for these resources. They also reasoned that the World Police would only be happy to see the allegedly hostile vault pyramid removed. This gamble proved wrong when they were ambushed on the way back home by World Police forces. After a short period of quiet, Mt. Doom was attacked by the World Police, starting the Entente-Laconia War.
By the time Laconia was defeated, almost every soccer dog who had fled to Mt. Doom had been pearled in the fierce fighting, effectively and finally ending the organization on CivClassics.
Migration to CivRealms 2.0
Around early October 2019, LSD partially migrated to CivRealms.
LSD, during its early days on CivRealms, spearheaded by ashnwill, set up a bunker in Varathia. Some members formed the affiliated Nestlé Corporation, aiming to create competitive XP and gear infrastructure. After Pirater raided a newfriend (who was a hacker), ashnwill abandoned the project by deleting the LSD discord and removing everyone but core_blaster from the namelayer groups.

Transcript: Hello folks,
Yesterday there seemed to be a bit of confusion as to why the LSD vault was disabled, and a lot of trash talk being thrown around as to the validity of the screenshots, as well as claims that they were "Cherry Picked" from the LSD trusted chat.
To clear the air a bit, the UDF would like to release their own logs of the chat, obtained independently of the Entente / SATO leaks. So if you have some time to read, enjoy the entire chat history of the relevant LSD channels:
Thank you, and Barkey.
