  1. Happy birthday, Meteorola! It has been over a decade since you've been on but I really like the concept of your nation (I did my homework) and that's why I'd like to wish you the best for the next year of your life.

      And the same goes for me: happy birthday mr weatherman!

  2. Hello from Melbourne! I'm having great weather and just stopped into an internet cafe on the way back to my hotel from Queen Victoria Markets! Going to the Crown Casino tonight and have plans to go to the city museum as well. Ok.. thats all for me. Talk ya'll (desperately trying to hold onto my American accent down here..) Meteo-
  3. I just hope I don't walk into work the first day back and say something like, "G'day mate!" "No worries" became part of the way I talked after I was inundated with Aussies last year! Thanks, and I will talk to "ya'll" (hehe, still haven't left Americana yet!) when I get back, and who knows, maybe there will be an extra post from Australia in the next two weeks! Meteo- PS Kant, I have a shirt that says "Yankees Suck" on it (the Americans know what I mean). Not all of us are Yanks, most of us aren't! None-the-less I don't where that shirt when I board airplanes!

    Coronation

    To: Baron T'nith, First Minister of the Akiiryan Baronic Council From: Eric, Hurricane of the Allied States of Meteorola Re: Coronation The people of Meteorola wish to send thier best to the couple. We are glad to see that there are still some countries in the world that remember thier traditions and hold fast to them. With much regret, the hurricane will not be able to attend the coronation. We, however, have sent along a gift. A gold plated Galileo Thermometre (OOC: you thought I would send something else? ha!). May this be the dawn, that follows the night, Hurricane Eric of the Allied States of Meteorola
  5. Might be three... where in Delaware are you from Van?
  6. A hurricane is making landfall in Australia! Yup about to leave, wont be back until late this month. It would be a riot if I passed one of you Aussies on the street somewhere, none of us would even know. IK'm going to Perth, Melborne and Sydney. (I may go back in a few years for Adelade, Darwin and Brisbane.) I leave Monday night (my time..) Eric
  7. I may live inside Washington's capitol Beltway, and I may call myself a liberal- but in the end I agree with Van. It's probably that I put more emphisis on the social liberalism, than on the conservative fiscal responsablity. Strange.
  8. To: GHET From: Meteorola We are glad to see your withdrawn support for Violens, however your continued interferance with our internal policies is an unquestionable violenation of Meteorola as a soviegn state. We do see this as an attempt at building trust. All GHET nationals will be released, but will be escorted our of the country. All persons possessing GHET visa's will not be permitted to enter Meteorola. I'm sure you understand the reasons for such a position. Relations between Meteorola and GHET will not be normalized until there is GHET recognition of Meteorola's soverign right to Ekainak. We also will remain on a heightened level of security. H. Eric of the Allied States of Meteorola
  9. To: Phil V From: Meteorola We recognize your claim, but are concerned with the movement of another major power so close to us. We have not forgotten the threats that once came at us from that island. Anything you could do to reassure Meteorola of her soverign right to exist as she is would be welcome. H. Eric of the Allied States of Meteorola
  10. Meteorola mourns the loss of one of Europa's greatest. May that same legacy carry on in the Sublime Principate of Akiiryu.
  11. Flag Motto Be ready, weather or not Capital Storm Official Language(s) English Leader Hurricane Eric Currency Degree The Allied States of Meteorola is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 651 million enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct. It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Law & Order and Defence are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 73%. A healthy private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry. Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, abortions are routinely performed in Meteorola's hospitals, main battle tanks stalk the woods of Meteorola in search of Lightning Bugs, and Meteorola's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of educational achievement. Crime is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meteorola's national animal is the Lightning Bug, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Degree. Geography As the name implies, The Weathered Isles are just that, located off the coast of Europa. There are seven inhabited islands in the archipelago of 10. The largest island, which is home to the capital city of The Eye of the Storm, also has a small mountain chain running through it. This mountain chain has beautiful scenery and is home to a reasonably sized mining industry. The other islands are smaller but have fertile land. The three unoccupied islands are situated close together and each has an active volcano, making them unfit for human habitation. The capital city of The Eye of the Storm is the largest city in the Alliance. Its deepwater port made it an excellent way to export the metals and minerals mined on the island's interior. The other port cities scattered among the islands are Vorti City, Foggy Bottom, Dew Point, Isobar, and Breezewood. The mining towns of Uplift and Lake Effect (located on a lake of the same name) are much smaller. The national economy largely rests on trade between the various islands, though there is some trade with the mainland. History First discovered by the mainlanders, long before they knew of each other, the people of the isolated islands, very much believed in nature, and most of all- the weather. The islands discovery began a chain of events that led each island to learn from its neighbors. The understanding that they were no longer alone began a series of cultural exchanges that blended together and eventually made each islands people indistinguishable from another. The multiple governments recognized that the people of the Weathered Isles were not as technologically advanced as the mainlanders. Most nations turned to the military for research. This caused a slow build up of organized military practices. About 100 years after the Awakening the first of a long series of wars began ravaging the islands. The mainland, unconcerned, did not become involved. Commerce instead was responsible for bringing technology to the Weathered Islands, mainly shipping building in the port cities. It was only 100 years ago that the people of the Weathered Isles rose up against the various Monarchs and formed the Alliance. The first uprising took place in The Eye of the Storm. The revolt was led by our national hero and namesake Penn Meteo. Within 10 years the Winds of Change (as the revolutions are collectively called) had reached all of the islands. Penn Meteo was determined that there should never again be a war between the islands and tried to unite them. He died before his dream was achieved. Some countries, however, did unite, just not all. Tensions over fishing rights, as well as the memories of old wars, kept total unification at bay. Eventually, through heavy negotiations did the Weathered Islands unite to form the Allied States of Meteorola. Politics National: We are a democracy. Our parliament is The Council of the Weathered Isles, which is headed by the Hurricane, currently myself. The Council meets in the World Weather Building. There are several major political parties, representing all views of the people, from the east wind to the west wind. Suffrage is granted at 18 to all citizens of the Alliance. Local: As we are an Alliance individual districts do have their own laws and regulations, though most business is carried out by the Council, especially international relations.
  12. @Phil: Take a look at the newer map... that is French Republics territory... besides, don't you think I would be in there if I could!
  13. Nobody expect any response out of Van for a while... don't ask, it is an American thing....hehe. Party on Van.
  14. To: GHET From: Meteorla Keep your policies off of our islands and your citizens will be permited to leave them. That is the deal we offer GHET. H. Eric of the Allied States of Meteorola =================================== Press Release from the Hurricane: Between the help of TCN and our own military force we believe Ekainak to once again be stable. We will not talk to the remaining operatives in FEN, and we still believe this to be a dangerous organization. Attacks have dramatically dropped and we believe that at some point in the future full stablity will be attained in Ekainak. (OOC: I'm planning to turn this into more of a Basque/N Ireland like situation instead of an Iraq, the main reason is that in October I, in real life, will be going to Australia)
  15. To: Europa From: Meteorola Despite the arrest of a significant number of FEN operatives, who clearly meant harm to Meteorola and to European interests, there have been continued acts of violence across Ekainak. As for the 213 members of FEN captured trying to purchase Biological and Chemical Weapons, we request assistance from a third party nation. We want a fair and transparent trial. Tag nationals will be released upon the ending of the insurgency by FEN, or a shift in policy by Tag. We are considering a prisnor echange with Tag, though no offer has yet been made. H. Eric
