Alliances are founded by players. Every player can join an alliance and the continent does not influence this. An alliance can make pacts (BND), declare war against, or seek NAPs (non-aggression pacts*) with other alliances. These will be listed in the alliance list. Every alliance needs an administrator. All other administrative duties do not have to be assigned because the admin can perform them as well (therefore admins cannot be ministers). You can find all the information about alliances, resources funds and transfers in our wiki: Wiki – Alliance.
