The term "Second Black March" is the term used to describe the heavy conflicts of March 2010, like the original Black March.
Pre-Second Black March
New Europe claimed all of the U.S. state of Kentucky and Angador claimed two counties in Kentucky during January. This conflict was also resolved, when Angador kept its two counties and New Europe claims the rest of the state.
Zonian Confederacy - SUNP
This was known as the Zonian Conflict at the time but was renamed the SUNP War after Mark Dresner's dissapearance. The Zonian Confederacy and the SUNP were also involved in what seemed to be a conflict. This conflict stemmed from piece of text on some of the SUNP's articles called "Zonian Conflict". When Nicholas Woode-Smith asked what this was about, Mark Dresner of the SUNP would refuse to comment. Zona's vassal, Xank, was also involved in the war. NottaLotta Acres declared a state of hostility on the SUNP as a result of the conflict with Zona, however, NottaLotta Acres quickly recinded the declaration after discussing the matter with the SUNP, and the two governments left the immediate conflict on good terms, but NottaLottan-Zonian relations became strained. The Zonian Confederacy left the conflict too after a conference with the SUNP which showed the war to be a big misunderstanding. Later however, ZIC agents uncovered that it was a ruse to damage Zonian Affairs. This information was not released until after Dresners dissapearance due to risks of damaging Foreign affairs further. Zona now has friendly relations with the SUNP but Xank remains neutral. The war was over but Zonian Foreign Affairs had been damaged.
The Zonian Confederacy's hatred for Mark Dresner remained though and over time, grew. Eventually, the Dresner Dossier was released which resulted in Dresners disappearance. Dresner is still regarded as the most hated man in the Zonian Confederacy.
