TO: Minister of foreign affairs, The Beautiful Empire of Orioni

FROM: Minister of foreign affairs, The Great Queendom of Suverina

 

Excellency,

 

I have the honour on behalf of Her Majesty's government to invite The Beautiful Empire of Orioni to send a diplomatic mission to the Great Queendom to participate in a conference on the subject of Orionii-Suverin mutual cooperation and friendship in order to strengthen the bonds between our great nations.

 

It is our Majesty's government's most sincere and strong belief that our nations would greatly benefit from stronger ties and relations and an increase in cooperation between our nations.

 

We humbly hope that The Beautiful Empire of Orioni will find our cordial invitation beneficial and agree to a conference.

 

I avail myself of this opportunity to extend to Your Excellency the assurance of my highest consideration,

 

Ana Codrianu

Her Majesty's Minister of Foreign Affairs

Your Excellency,

 

It is with great honour that we kindly accept this gracious proposal from the Great Queendom of Suverina. Finding common ground between all of the nations in Europa will be a central policy of the new administration. We warmly welcome this move from minister Codrianu, and look forward to meeting Her in person shortly.

 

Cordially and with the utmost regard,

 

Sir Andrew Pipkin

Councillor of Foreign Affairs

The Beautiful Empire of Orioni

The drive to the foreign affairs office building had been a long and silent one. The diplomatic aide knew all too well he needed to give the Sir Pipkin plenty of room to think.

 

Councillor Pipkin had been sitting silently, deep in thought, stroking his chin while once again going over the list of policy priorities he wanted to implement in 2007, before his party was defeated and isolationists came into power. The start of this 21st century had been one of mixed political events: while the first decade had been one of powerplay and cooperation, this second decade seemed to be turning into one of instability and disintegration.

 

The Empress had given him explicit instructions to reforge and reconfirm the bonds that had been established. International ties must again become the cornerstone of the Orioni economy and it's political influence on the global scene. This visit to Suverina would be both a political as well as economic opportunity. Just as long as those decadent Westerners would finally agree to lower their import tariffs...

TO:  Greater Holy Empire of @Tagmatium Rules

FROM: @Suverina

Esteemed friends,

The Great Queendom of Suverina would like to reach out to our benevolent neighbour, the Greater Holy Empire of Tagmatium, and offer a gift of friendship and good will that Her Majesty's government hopes shall cement and improve cordial relations between our two great nations, thus Suverina would like to gift two aurochs to the government of His Imperial Majesty. Aurochs, as most are aware, is the national animal of the Suverin nation and these creatures that once roamed over vast territories across the continent nearly went extinct and, though still rare, exists in Suverina due to conservation efforts started in the early 19th century. By bestowing you with this gift, our national symbol in the flesh, we wish to see that in Tagmatium there shall be a small part that is forever Suverina.

May the friendship of our two peoples bloom as the edelweiss in the mountains, but unlike the edelweiss, may it never wither.

 

I avail myself of this opportunity to extend to Your Excellency the assurance of my highest consideration,

Ana Codrianu
Her Majesty's Minister of Foreign Affairs

To: Ana Codrianu, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Greater Queendom of @Suverina

From: the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion of the Megas Agios Basileia ton Arhomaion

Minister Codrianu,

Despite our recent disagreements, which are now happily years in the past, the Greater Queendom of Suverina has always been a close neighbour and a great friend of the Arhomaioi. Our nations share a border and a common history, one that goes beyond recent mere diplomatic spats and into the distant past. Many are the times our nations have cooperated and not just for the good of ourselves, or Europa, but Eurth as a whole.

The gift that your great nation has chosen to present to the Megas Agios Basileia is one that has obviously been closely considered – the tact that the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion, the Imperial Government, has taken in recent years is one of conservation and environmentalism. After all, man was appointed as God's steward on Eurth, so the decisions that we make and the actions that we undertake need to demonstrate this, that we our preserving God's gift for future generations.

Indeed, the choice of Aurochsen shows this. There are no breeding Aurochsen within Arhomaneia. Sadly, the last was slain many hundreds of years ago. The Logothesion ton Agelon, the Ministry for the Environment, has been pursuing a policy of re-wilding in recent years, where practicable, in areas that would benefit from the re-introduction of both large prey species and large predators. Obviously, this cannot be done everywhere – despite the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion's preference for environmentalism, the impact upon parts of Arhomaneia that are primarily pastoral must be considered. Although wolves or leopards may only take few sheep from a flock, those are still more than otherwise.

A programme for breeding the Occidental Bison, the subspecies of bison that used to be widespread across Tagmatium in years past, has existed since 1965 (7474 according to the Tagmatine calendar) and has been very successful. Indeed, the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion is in talks with another nation to export a number to establish a breeding population in that country, although this has to be looked at from the idea that this is not a native animal, even if it close to one that has been driven to extinction by anthropogenic means.

Obviously, Suverina's noble gift of a pair of Aurochsen must be considered within this lens. It is thought that the last wild Aurochs was killed in Ahromaneia about four hundred years ago, roughly, and before then they existed as a small population in Perateia, the part of my nation that has a border with yours. Because of this, the Aurochsen will have to be put within a zoo or a wildlife park in order to allow the breeding pair that the Greater Queendom has gifted us to flourish without impacting on any other species or programme that the Logothesion ton Agelon is undertaking. At the moment, I could not tell you where this might be, but all care will be taken of them, wherever they end up.

God willing, this will not just be the start of a new breeding population of a rare species, but the start of a new period of relations between two of the most powerful nations of not just Europa, but Eurth.

May God be a guide for the future of both our great nations,

Eugenios Goulielmos,

Megas Logothetes
