    A Meeting of Two Democracies

    Polo extended out his hand for a handshake and reprocated Ms. Colt's sentiment: "It was also an honor to meet you, Secretary-General, and I likewise hope that our nations to continue to collaborate openly. We will be keeping up with the draft of the future trade agreement, and I hope that you win re-election Ms. Colt." In the end, the meeting had been surprisingly productive. Ahrana agreed to open its borders to RFE, it would soon be holding general elections, a trade agreement was discussed, and the Ahranian government seemed on the path towards stability. The Mauridivian government was absolutely thrilled that he regressive and autocratic policies and alliances formed under Ivanoff were now being thrown away; Ahrana had distanced itself from Derthalen, and civil rights were once again being respected to their fullest capacity. Although Ahrana had a severe drug problem that would require careful handling, it would seem that the nation was overall recovering from the last year of turmoil, and Mauridiviah was willing to help Ahrana make the transition possible. There were only a few states in middle Argis that weren't complete backwaters, and Ahrana was one of them. If Ahrana's democracy lasts, it would be a major victory for democracy worldwide. As such, at least to the Mauridivian government, the risk of fostering a close relationship with Ahrana was more than worth it.

    "Ma-" began President Polo, before he was cut off. "Mauridiviah would be delighted to loosen specific trade restrictions on Ahranian goods since Ahrana is willing to do the same. I could draft it up with the Ahranian delegation after this meeting is concluded" said Caballeros, interrupting his own own president. "The planned Ahranian visa system is excellent and has our completely approval. If there is nothing else, I believe that this meeting can be swiftly concluded." continued Caballeros.

    Caballeros looked at Polo triumphantly. Finally, the Ahranian delegation was speaking a language that Mauridiviah could speak: agricultural products and tourism. Unfortunately, during that self-congratulatory stare, Caballeros lost the initative to the President once more. "We would be delighted to provide Ahrana with agricultural goods. Perhaps we could remove restriction on Ahranian fish and Ahrana could remove restrictions on Mauridivian produce," President Polo then took a sip of water before continuing, "As to the tourism subject, Mauridiviah currently allows individuals with an Ahranian passport to enter the country for up to four months with the possibility of an up to two month extension visa-free. If Ahrana could similarly relax travel restrictions on individuals with Mauridivian passports, then we could start talking about mutually beneficial tourism." said Polo, asking himself how he'd sell a joint tourism advertising program to the unions. Caballeros, meanwhile, looked on at his President, feeling robbed of his triumph.

    The Laws of the Sea

    The Mauridivian delegation was angry. Very angry. After the traumatic experience that was the Thalassan War, a conflict which had scarred an entire generation of Mauridivians, they were appalled to hear that the Sunset Sea Islands would be hosting such an important international convention. The Mauridivian government had actually considered boycotting the convention altogether; after all, it's not like they'd be missed. However, the liberals within the government had convinced king Richard II to send a small delegation to represent mauridivian interests at the conference. After all, international maritime law is important, and all that. The king had not actually sent a liberal delegation though, he had sent a considerate one. Considerate in this case just means "veterans who are also racists", so when they were told that they were going to the Sunset Sea Islands to negotiate an important international treaty, they nearly exploded with rage. That rage was nothing new; it had filled this men in one way or another ever since the War, but now it had really come out in force. As their relatively small ship approached the harbor of Sunset City, Tomas Gonzalez, the leader of the delegation, tried to keep his composure and ordered his subordinates to do the same. "Why should we act all fancy for these salaos*?" whined Solomon Tuvor, the main secretary. "We're showing them some kindness. If we just walked in as if we owned the place, although I agree that we rightfully should, these pescaos* would probably riot like there was no tommorrow. We're saving them from having to waste time thinking about how inferior they are to true-blooded Alharuns." replied Gonzalez. "Well spoken, boss" said one of the aides. The rest of the delegation quickly nodded in agreement. "Besides, there will be people actually worth the air they breathe here, and as you may recall, not all of our brothers-in-arms think in the same way we do." added Gonzalez. "Never doubted it. If we all thought the correct way, the king would be properly empowered, instead of a liberal sock puppet!' shouted Tuvor. The delegation exploded into laughter, and the rest of the way to the dock they talked to each other in mocking voices, moving their hands and pretending that they were the evil liberals control the rightous monarchy. Finally, the ship came to a stop, and the delegation began to dismount unto the red carpet. Several boys carried the men's papers as they walked towards the Sunset Sea Islandian monarch, who was standing off the red carpet as some sort of gesture, but that went completely unnoticed. Gonzalez approached the king and extended his hand for a handshake while presenting himself. "We are the delegation from the Serenísimo Reino de Mauridiviah. We hope that this conference will not be disappointing." After Gonzalez, each of the men in the delegation shook the kind king's hand with ever increasing levels of cold stares. So far they had managed to keep everything together, and they hoped that it would last. *these are racial slurs used to refer to Sunset Sea Islanders.

    I believe @Sayf's history involves some empire building, mainly as it relates to @Greater Serbia.

    Civil War Raging!

    From: El Departamento de la Ayuda Exterior To: All Parties involved in the North Dniesterian Civil War; @North Dniester Subject: Foreign Aid for impacted civilians Comrades and fellow humans, This is an official communication from the Mauridivian Ministry of Foreign Aid. We have recently been briefed about the situation in North Dniester, and we have determined that the region qualifies to recieve several types of foreign aid from Mauridiviah. We would like to propose that the civilians of all sides should recieve the following from Mauridiviah: Several tons of rice, Several tons of canned meats, Several tons of canned vegetables, Vaccines and antibiotics, Donated clothes Please consider getting in contact with the Mauridivian embassy in @Ahrana to schedule drops of aid, as civilians are innocents in every war and they do not deserve to suffer for anyone's political cause. Sincerely, Samuel ben Ya'ir Diaz

    Hello!

    Welcome! Please consider dropping by on our discord, that's where most of us are at. Hope you have a good time here!
  12. Here's what I plan to do: My country will probably be declaring war on @Greater Serbia, as we can't militarily intervene in places if we haven't declared war. We will be planning to provide logistical and limited combat support to the region, probably adjoining ourselves to Sayfi forces. It will be extremely controversial in the nation, but inaction will not save Bosniak lives. Evacuating the Bosniak population to Sayf and Sayf's friendly neighbor's should probably be the priority--- Sayf is a muslim nation that is willing to protect them and has the ability to do so. I am very aware of @Prymont's concern that the Bosniaks would be geographically close to Greater Serbia, but to that I have to reply that there are still Jews and gays in France despite the Nazis' best attempts to exterminate them, and now it'd be unthinkable that the germans would try again. There's also the fact that Croatia and Serbia, nations that in the 1990s tried to wipe each other off the map, still currently exist and even share a border. Proximity to Greater Serbia is irrelevant as long as the Bosniaks are protected by a capable modern army, such as Sayf's. I know Prymont told me to f*ck off because I believe in making a Bosniak State in central Argis, but I won't be reciprocating that and instead say that a free Bosniak state is the best possible outcome for the Bosniaks themselves. First of all, it wouldn't be a true ethnostate because non-Bosniaks would obviously live there, it'd just be a small area that was majority Bosniak, making it more similar to Montenegro than Wakanda. Second of all, the most effective way to protect the Bosniaks from another genocide and allow Bosniaks worldwide (this is actually an important point; Prymont is using the rough number I calculated of the Bosniaks in GS, but considering they're just muslim slavs there's probably many more of them out there) to have a place to go that will never turn against them. The country that is most similar to them is currently Sayf, and they don't even speak similar languages as rather unsuprisingly the main language of the Bosniaks is... Serbian. Setting up a Bosniak state would end the cycle of a discriminated group going elsewhere just to be discriminated again, like what happened to the Jews irl. Sayf and I actually discussed where a Free Bosnia could be and we agreed that we could set one up easily in a sparcely populated and small area of Sayf's neighboring nation (which is meant for future expansion purposes) in a peaceful manner. We're not talking about a very big nation; perhaps with a population of two million people at most and the size of say, Albania or even smaller. It will already have pre-existing infrastructure although it'll probably not be enough, in that case the Bosniaks, many of whom have been robbed of a formal education, can build it themselves which will allow them to be employed and make a living. The area would also be pretty close to where we'd be sending the Bosniaks temporarily so transportation wouldn't be an issue. One more thing, Prymont said that we'd be "forcing" the Bosniaks into Bosnia. That's a massive misreprenstation of what would actually happen. If we look at similar examples throughout history, you'd notice that modern Israel, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, France, Germany, Poland, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Greece, Turkey, Armenia, Bulgaria, Romania, and Russia were not formed by having other nations massively deport their respective populations. Instead, the populations of these nations had population exhanges with each other and other nations (some more peaceably than others) and within the year you had culturally homogenous nations where there once had been none. That's because these people willingly moved there because living in places that are really different from you and would hardly accept you is, well, worse than living in a place that accepts and wants you. The exact same thing would happen with the Bosniaks and Bosnia. Finally, creating a new state will probably not be as costly to individual nations as is thought. This is because the people who would be building Bosnia wouldn't be Sayf or Adaptus or Mauridiviah; It'd be Sayfis, Adaptons and Mauridivians. Private individuals and companies investing in a new nation. This type of infrastructure investment is what drives the Chinese economy (Which is why China has so many ghost cities) and is probably would drive the early Bosniak economy as well. As you can probably tell, this will create profit and boost the economy, which will in turn positively impact the world economy, thereby bringing in more tax money for everyone. Bosnia would pay for itself and then some, eventually. Re-settling them somehwere across the world or the continent would be a burden that the governments involved would have to bear, on top of the welfare payments that the Bosniaks would likely need just to survive. Bosniaks are very uneducated in general, so they would have trouble being competitive in a market of some developed nation like SSI or Prymont (or even the Hellenic Rus), and they would therefore end up either unemployed and on government welfare, or on the crappy manual labor jobs that don't pay very much. That completely ignores the costly bureaucratic and logistical nighmare that would be to divide, process, and re-settle the entire Bosniak population of GS in nations across the world. In that case, making a whole new country would probably be less complicated since all you gotta do is set up a small government and then let them work it out. By the way, they don't speak your language and will likely have trouble learning it (if they even do at all, the European migrants from North Africa haven't bothered) since they can't even write in their own language. Oh, and @Prymont, your idea has OOC opposition so good luck fighting that one Pry. But seriously, Derthalen being a thing receives OOC opposition on a near-daily basis but he's still around. A Free Bosnia has very powerful patrons (@Adaptus and @Sayf have declared themselves for it on the discord, including private chats) and since they're going to be the main boots on the ground, I don't believe that the creation of a Free Bosnia as described above (or similar) could be stopped by the small number of mainly humanitarian forces sent from countries that oppose the measure. In the end, such nations would be in opposition to the Bosniak's best interests anyway, and I think you know, considering your suggestions were places that were either your friends or could be easily influenced by you. Thus, the Mauridivian government position is that a Free Bosniak State is created and allow, through self-determination, to choose its own path, rather than not even having that as an option at all.

    Law of the Sea Convention

    I'd certainly be interested in participating, most trade goes through the sea and so having maritime law is very important to Mauridiviah and every other nation. I'd recommend setting the RP after the period of regional wars, which would place the RP sometime after 1956.
