The Baltic League (also referred to as Balta) was a commercial and defensive confederation of merchant guilds and their market cities. It was the direct predecessor of the modern states of Aloia and Texania, as well as a dominant power in the Baltic Sea region in the Middle Ages.

The Baltic League really only took on true status as an organized nationstate in 1417, following the Peace of Halle. The Peace of Halle restructured the League to such an extent that that document is often considered the true beginning of the modern Aloian kingdom. The Peace of Halle followed the marriage of Alois II of Konza and Victoria IV of Minnesota and established Alois and Victoria's descendants as the reigning monarchs over the whole Baltic League. 

In 1517, Saxon monk Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses, which started the Protestant Reformation. Luther's teachings spread throughout the League and beyond, igniting huge conflicts. The southern cities of the Baltic League held to the teachings of the Catholic Church during this time period and so they broke away from the League. 

In 1593, the Baltic League met its true end in the Uppsala Synod, which gave a new name to the Baltic League, the name Aloia, which is derived from the names of King Alois I and the city of Halle. The member states of the League chose the new name as a result of the secession of Texania and to cement the state as one solid nation, rather than its previous form as a loose confederation.

Pan-Balticism and the reacquisition of the Baltic region has been a major political force in Aloian politics, fueling King Gustavus Adolphus' conquest of Texania in the 1620s and 1630s. The former member cities of the Baltic League were again unified from 1631 to 1886, when Texania again became an independent republic.
