    Request: Republika Mazovia

    I'm fine with Mazovia being in any of the locations.

    An Argic Meeting

    "Well, Duval, I'll see what I can do about the East, and I understand where you are coming from with the travel ban. I can assure you that I will be taking steps to lessen the danger that the Commonwealth poses to tourists in the future." The King paused for a second. "Anyway, now, onto trade. I would be happy to let Prymont's Kaldestad Aamot Group open a factory in the Commonwealth, under strict pay rules, of course, and my country's stores could always use more diverse food options, such as the Canamo Salmon, but I'm afraid that I don't have too much to barter with." "Hmm..." "Would you appreciate some of the Commonwealth's extremely-unnaturally long-lasting civilian bread being shipped to Prymont? It doesn't taste the greatest, but it's healthy, or so I've been told, and it's perfect for use in food storage vaults. Besides, we really do make excessive amounts of it. Other than that, I could also let one of your Prymontian companies mine rare-earth minerals on the Commonwealth side of the Commonwealth-Eurofuhrer border, as long as they don't pollute the area too much. Wouldn't want the Eurofurherian border agents getting mad at us..." He then paused, waiting for a response.

    An Argic Meeting

    In the hallway, Eugastin thought to himself about the current state of the meeting and what to do to try to turn it in his favour, or at the very least, make it equal between both parties. He knew that he was in no place to make one-sided demands, and that, even though he so desperately wanted a full annexation of the East, it would be impossible to pull off in the current political climate. Additionally, if he let it the region regain full independence, there was a high chance that the government's popularity with the public would drop. Drastically. All that he could do was to begin to plan a meeting with the former leaders of the occupied region to hopefully make a compromise. Otherwise, the Commonwealth needed more trade with other nations. The country had enough of the basic resources, such as wood and metal, to sustain itself, along with an excess of bread, but it could use more rarer natural resources, along with a better overall economy. Hopefully, he could make a beneficial deal with Duval over this matter. He then walked back to the main meeting area and told the official waiting there to bring George Duval and his advisor back to the room to continue the talks if they were ready to.

    An Argic Meeting

    "I would like to keep the central government's control over the country secure, and I have been letting people protest more then they had been able to before, but, you know, I'll tell you what. After these meetings are fully over, I'll talk to the former leaders of the eastern region, along with the leaders of the largest anti-government groups, in an effort to make a compromise between them and the Commonwealth in the name of peace." Eugastin paused for a second before continuing. "As for now, well, we could all use a break, and I need to talk to the Chancellor. If you would like to chat amongst yourselves for the next 30 minutes or so, then a small room is open a little further down the hallway. Also, food, if you're hungry, is available in the palace's kitchen. Once the meeting resumes, I would like you, Duval, to talk about what you would like to see in an autonomous region, if the East gets turned into one, and for us to discuss the possibility of a trade deal between our countries." The King then stood up and walked out of the room.

    An Argic Meeting

    The King tapped his foot, thinking again about how best to respond. "See, now there's my problem. If I were to fully withdraw from the occupied region, I would lose all remaining support I have amongst the armed populace that are part of the Commonwealth's army. If they're forced to withdraw from the East, then, more than likely, the protests will return, though this time, instead of being about the admittedly poor conditions that the army fights in, they'll be about how their actions in the region "were completely for naught", or something along those lines. They would also most likely be larger than before, with the families of those affected having more of a reason to also join in." The King tapped his foot some more, thinking of a way to solve the problem that would satiate both sides. "I have a possible solution. Would you be open to the area becoming a highly autonomous region under Commonwealth control instead of being either fully integrated or left alone? If I cut down on some of the planned infrastructure in the region for now and raise taxes slightly, I may be able to squeeze enough money from the government's overall budget to do it..."

    An Argic Meeting

    The King thought for a moment, wanting to word his response correctly. "While the Chancellor and I may have been somewhat rash in ordering the invasion, you must understand how we were feeling at the time. Public support for the government at the time was at an all-time low. We couldn't risk having the raids continue to effect the Commonwealth, and so the attack, and subsequent annexation process, was ordered. In my opinion, If the Easterners wanted to find a diplomatic solution to their problems, they should've called one of the Commonwealth's diplomats over to talk something out. Instead, they chose violence for several days straight, and so we responded with the same." Eugastin then fully focused his attention on Duval. "Or do you have another way that the raids on Commonwealth soil could have been negated?"

    An Argic Meeting

    After being asked the question by Duval, Kacper waited a few moments to think before responding. He needed to make these first impressions count. "From the information I've been able to come by, after the initial attacks on Commonwealth soil, public opinion of the current government quickly dropped. The government-owned newspapers would never publish that, at least not in full, but the invasion was seen by the government as a quick way to raise domestic support. Of course, it was somewhat nullified by the truth about the soldiers' fighting conditions coming out. Additionally, the "barbarians" weren't technically, well, barbarians. The three-or-so groups that the Commonwealth invaded were incredibly underdeveloped, sure, but the main reason that they had attacked the country in the first place is that they had needed money to buy food from the even-more-eastern city states and republics. As of now, we're pouring nearly every spare ruble we can find in the government's budget into developing the region by building bridges and highways and whatnot. Personally, I think the government should have simply given money to the eastern groups to stop the attacks instead of outright invading them, but I would most likely get demoted to a lesser governmental position or fired if I ever said that publicly." The car that they were in then took a corner and arrived in the central square of Krakow. Duval exited first, followed by Kacper, and the other vehicles were not far behind. The entire square had been almost entirely cleared out beforehand, save for a few civilian vehicles, and the white-and-red architecture of the square could clearly be seen. As they made their way forwards, they were stopped by a 21-gun-salute performed from the top of the palace, soon followed by a rendition of the Prymontian and Commonwealth national anthems. Afterwards, the group went inside and were directed to the main meeting hall where the King awaited. "Welcome. Please, make yourselves comfortable." The long oak table, along with the accompanying velvet-back rolling chairs, set the scene for the upcoming talks. "Now, Duval, what exactly do you have in mind for future Commonwealth-Prymontian relations?"

    An Argic Meeting

    Kacper Jolvinus walked down the airport stairs with a small smile on his face. The Prymontian plane had just showed up, and Kacper had been ordered to take those onboard the craft to the royal palace, where the King waited. As he left the building and walked towards the plane, which, by now, had completely ground to a halt, he took out a small pen. Once the airstair of the Prymontian plane was fully deployed, Duval walked out and was soon met with several staff members of both the government and the airport, along with Kacper. Kacper then asked for transportation out of the airport, and a silver car was soon driven up. They would use this to travel to Krakow's central square, where they would then walk to the palace. Kacper bowed to the Prymontian president, then motioned him inside the car. He then gave the pen in his hand to Duval. "I was asked to give you this by the King. I presume he wanted you to have this as a token of gratitude for showing up. Actually, I don't suppose you know my name yet. I am Kacper Jolvinus, vice-attendant of the Commonwealth's King. As we are making our way to the capitol's center, the royal palace, feel free to ask any questions. This dull grey weather certainly makes using transportation in this country quite of a bore."

    An Argic Meeting

    Eugastin walked down the old hallways of Krakow's royal palace, his silver-and-red outfit shaking just as much as he was. He needed to make the upcoming meeting count. The Commonwealth desperately needed allies, especially when it was surrounded by potentially hostile threats such as Ahrana and Greater Serbia. Even if it meant that he would have to engage in serious talks with the Prymontian government, the safety of the nation needed to be secured. And he would do all that he could to make sure that happened. The Commonwealth's leaders, including the King, had entirely underestimated the effects that annexing the region to the East would have on the country. For one, it was taking far more resources to integrate then what had originally been thought was necessary. The original owners of the region had been poorly maintaining their existing infrastructure, leading to the Commonwealth having to repair nearly everything from pipes to bridges. Additionally, there was little-to-no transportation between the many towns and cities in the region, meaning that it would take millions upon millions of rubles to properly connect them with core cities like Krakow. And the international blowback wasn't exactly helping things either. What he really needed right now was other countries, such as Prymont, recognizing the Commonwealth's acquisition to the East. That would surely boost the nation's international standing, or so Eugastin thought to himself... For now, though, preparations needed to be made. The Prymontian President was due to arrive in less than 24 hours, give or take a few, and a 21-gun salute was definitely in order.

    The Commonwealth Times

    An invitation is sent Earlier today, the King made an official statement in Krakow's central square inviting the president of Prymont, George Duval, to a state visit to the Commonwealth capital of Krakow. If accepted by the Prymontian president, then the series of meetings and talks would last three days. The official statement can be read below- "Throughout the past few months, tensions in the region, along with belong surrounded on all sides by potentially hostile countries, have forced the Commonwealth to take drastic measures to ensure the continuation of it's survival, chiefly among them the occupation, and hopefully eventual annexation, of the formerly-"barbarian" controlled territories to the east. However, and partially because of the annexation, we have yet to find any long lasting friends in the region. Today is when that ends. It is now best that we open up official talks with other Argic leaders. The revolutionary nation of Ahrana poses a threat to our nation's wellbeing and independence, so it would be unwise to let their leaders have a greater influence in the Commonwealth. Because of this, the next best choice is Prymont. Using my standing as the King of the Commonwealth, along with it's constituent regions, Poland and Lithuania, I herby invite the Prymontian president, George Duval, to Krakow for a series of high-level talks with me and the Chancellor." According to the central government, this visit is necessary to ensure the continuation of the Commonwealth's safety and prosperity. We await to see if and when the talks begin. Check back soon for more updates from the Commonwealth Times, your local, and absolutely only, news network.

    Expansion: The Commonwealth

    Journal of Vystana Poloran May 5, 20XX This country is far better than I originally expected. In some ways, at least. After the occupation of my homeland, I had thought that it would be the end. Thankfully, the government of this country made sure that all refugees who wanted to could get a new house and job. To be fair, I am fairly well-paid, and I, along with my husband, have more than enough money between us to support the kids. However, living here does have it's downsides... For one, even though the King passed a law against it, discrimination and racism against us, the so-called "former barbarians", is still prevalent. Sure, the King and Chancellor may not normally call us that, but I am still baffled by the remarks made by minor government officials. The way I see it, If you're going to annex a large section of land, you might as well act nice to the people you're, err, "taking in". Additionally, calling us "barbarians" isn't even the worst of it. We're often the last people picked to participate in events and activities, and I bet that I would never have gotten my job if I had tried to apply outside the "guaranteed hiring period" offered by the government. Secondly, I am often met with a question. "What can I do with my money?" Sure, I have enough money for food, furniture, electronics, or clothing... ...but there's not exactly a large variety of food, furniture, electronics, or clothing to choose from. And, even though I might not be the best one to argue, having come from an extremely undeveloped region in the East, and sure, I get that this city is far better than the one I left behind... ...but I would expect a self-proclaimed "developed country" to have more than 40 or so types of food in it's stores. Ah, whatever. All I wish for is that this country completely fulfilled its promises, instead of just partially, and opened up trading with more nations. Once that happens, then I, along with many other people, with be both much happier and much more willing to serve this country.

    -APRIL 22, 20XX- -CENTRAL SQUARE SECURITY FOOTAGE- -PLAY- -THIS VIDE- -SKIP INTRO- -PLAY- The streets are quiet, but not for much longer... "WE DEMAND BETTER TREATMENT!" "GIVE US BETTER HEALTHCARE!" "SUPPORT YOUR TROOPS!" -More and more people, some from the streets, and other from nearby houses, begin to flood into the central square, right outside of the Royal Palace's South Wing- "VETERANS NEE-" -The protestors are silenced by a man, now on a prop-up speech stand, in a black outfit- "Hello, all of you. Some of you may know me, some not, but I am the humble Victor Cameli. I have come here, like many of you, to protest the inadequate treatment of Commonwealth soldiers. Just last month, Thomas Augwich, my longtime friend, died in the eastern conflict. Now, I'm sure this is an experience shared by many of you, but what pains me is the fact that it didn't even need to ever happen. If the government had let us stay at the easily-defended hills of the outer region, then we could have protected the border with minimal casualties. Instead we had to move to a nearly unmarked location several miles back with our backs turned to the enemy! Additionally, the seemingly rampant indecisiveness of the military isn't even the only problem, and the far less important one. I do suppose that formations need to change, sometimes drastically, once in a while, but can a government really let it's soldiers return, then not have nearly enough aid to give to all of them? After nearly every military operation that the government starts, I see people return and not even be able to get a simple cast! A cast! Forget prosthetics, the same soldiers who returned from combat don't even have the ability to fix their damaged limbs! If the Ministry of Defense constructs more weaponry during wartime, then why can't the Ministry of Health do the same with medical equipment? This is a disgrace!" -After Victor Cameli ends his speech, the protesting croud begins to yell far louder then before, and the guards on the steps leading up to the palace have a hard time keeping them from climbing up to the palace doors- "WE NEED JUSTICE!" "CASTS FOR ALL!" -One of the guards peels away from the group and runs into the palace, calling for the King. Several minutes later, after the King is caught up on what happened, he walks out of the large doors, towards the microphone on the stand before him- "Now, today, I have already withdrawn all Commonwealth ships from the Mediargic Sea. However I know that those vessels were not the reason you all were here, so I will make a few promises when it comes to the well-being of Commonwealth troops instead. First, the Ministry of Health will be required to produce far more medical products, such as splints, casts, and simple prosthetics, during wartime. Second, all first-aid kits in Commonwealth vehicles will have twice the amount of items inside of them and be placed in blast-resistant containers. Lastly, to prevent another wave of casualties like the one that occurred after I ordered, admittedly without a whole lot of careful reasoning and planning, to fall back in the eastern conflict, all future operations where soldiers have their back to the enemy will be well-supported by aircraft and tanks. Now, is that enough to satiate everyone's thirst for a better military system?" "NO! WE NEED FURTHER SUPP-" -Victor Cameli cuts the protester off with a loud snap of his fingers- "Now, thank you for your gracious attitude towards our cause, and I think that, once those changes are implemented, the Commonwealth's military will be far safer and more secure than it is today. However, mark my words. If another set of major military-related blunders occurs in the future, we will be back. And we will not. be. happy." -And with that, Victor Cameli walks off of his stand- -SECURITY FOOTAGE COMPROMISED- -END OF RECORDING-
