City of Cristina

September 24, 2017

 

Dear brothers and sisters,

 

In the days preceding the Summit on Artificial Intelligence that will be held in the paradisiac Sunset Sea Islands and in which will be discussed the policies and guidelines for the ethical and moral use of AI and the concerning escalation of the nuclear program of some nations that intend to use nuclear energy for war purposes, the good people of the Kingdom of Christina present themselves before the world.

 

Today, we declare to the whole international community that the Kingdom of Cristina, also widely known as the Free Port of Cristina, is applying for the recognized condition of Free Nuclear Zone. In anticipation to any international policies, Her Majesty Queen Nova Maxima Korvini set down the  Proposed Constitutional Amendment number 15 (PCA-15), whose purpose is to include in our Constitution a chapter prohibiting the development, manufacture, dealing and tests of any nuclear devices for war purposes. This PCA is being discussed by the National Council at this very moment.



We assure to the entire World that our recent investments in the arms manufacturing industry within and outside our country are intended solely to defend the sovereignty of the Kingdom of Christina and should not be regarded as a threat by any other nation. We also ensure that none of our military projects, programs and dealings use or will ever use the nuclear energy as a weapon or the AI for military purpose. The same holds true for any chemical and biological weapons. We are inviting all nations to send delegations of experts and politicians to visit our facilities and verify our statements.

 

The Kingdom of Cristina reaffirms its commitment to support, including financially, any national and international projects and programs aiming the promotion of pacific and intelligent uses of nuclear energy, those for the improvement of the human race.



Also, we take this chance to express our most sincere wishes to initiate the talks on the possibility of the establishment of diplomatic relations between our countries.

 

Finally and most importantly, we wish you all the best of the days and a glorious future, full of peace and prosperity, under the blessings of the Good God.

 

From all the People of Cristina, with sincerity.

Dearest,

Know that we are happy for having given the first step towards a future free of such terrible weapons, but that we are even happier for not have to give we the next ones alone.

Once more Fleur de Lys shows to the world its commitment to the human development and the people of Cristina is honoured to have such a brave friend. Much can be reached if we stay strong and united in this friendship.

Perhaps we can talk about how to bring others to this and about the possibility of establishing an international programme of development of the pacific use of nuclear energy in this region of the Europa in our meeting in Venège. A meeting that I am very excited to attend.

Have wonderful days you and your country that I love and admire so much. God bless you.

The glistening golden yellow seal of the Free Port sat atop the communique, toying with Mrs Stolos. It clear now more than ever that the Old Europan paradigm was now over. The Old Guard has faded, and it was becoming increasingly apparent that Adaptus was on it's own now. With the lack of Support for the @Derthalen blockade, the formation of new world treaties, and now this. Mrs Stolos knew her response. She knew it would be backed by the Federal Assembly, and the King. But she also knew the further reaching consequences was a more isolated Adaptus. None the less, her reply was sent. 

From: Grand Consul  Ceres Stolos, of the Grand Federal Kingdom of Adaptus. 

To: Queen of the Kingdom of Cristina, Nova Maxima Korvini.

Could Concern: The remaining internationally active nations of Europa. 

Your Highest Majesty. 

While I must at first commend you on your endeavour to establish this region as a 'Nuclear Free Zone' as you put it, in terms of military nuclear development and production. I must sincerely decline this opportunity to forfeit  the nuclear arsenal, production, and research and development within the Grand Kingdom. 

It brings me some sadness to remind those in the international community. and to educate those, who may otherwise not have known. But due to previous transgressions by former sovereign nations  against our own, we feel that to reject our nuclear arsenal would be to reject our own sovereignty at this point. Previous history saw our Grand Kingdom on the receiving end of a minor nuclear exchange. This history has given us the resolve to hold onto our deterrent for our own survival. 

I must also remind those around us, that, we live in an increasingly polarising world. And while we in Adaptus feel we are upholding our Europan values, and pursue to adhere to them, it is clear that those values are not as widely accepted as they once were. Because of this, our government, and our people feel, that it is our duty to champion those values, for the betterment of our region. Or else should we fall back into the abyss. 

We greatly understand this stance will put you, and many other leaders at odds with the Federal Kingdom, and as such are happy to open dialogue to help you and others understand our position. 

Yours in the greatest of faith. 

Grand Consul Ceres Stolos.

Dear Mrs Stolos,

We are aware of Adaptus recent past and how it was many times threatened by foreign forces and  so we do understand the concerns of Adaptus on get rid or even reduce its nuclear arsenal.

It is not our intention to create misunderstandings between our nations and we would never be at odds with one nation that is just as concerned with the security of its sovereignty as the Kingdom of Cristina is with its own independence.

In fact, the Kingdom of Cristina’s decision to declare itself a Nuclear Free Zone should be seen by the World as an opportunity for new dialogues on the matter of the use of Nuclear energy.

Our decision and arguments were based on the fact that in recent years, many mainstream Cristenese politicians, academic analysts, and retired military leaders have asserted that far from making the world safer, nuclear weapons had become a source of extreme risk. Our rationale and conclusion was based on the instability in many states possessing the technologies and the lack of wherewithal to properly maintain and upgrade existing weapons of mass destruction.

I see that the risk of accidents, misjudgments or unauthorised launches has been growing more acute in a world of rivalries between some states that may lack the security safeguards developed over many years by nations like Adaptus. The emergence of pariah states armed with WMD is adding to the fear as was the declared ambition of terrorists to steal, buy or build WMD devices.

You see, please, that I criticize the Theory of Deterrence in its very assumption about opponent rationales. Firstly, because suicidal or psychotic opponents may not be deterred by any forms of deterrence. Second, if a country that possesses WMD try to gain a first-strike advantage by suddenly launching weapons at its enemy, with a view to destroying it’s nuclear launch silos thereby rendering that nation incapable of a response. Third, diplomatic misunderstandings or opposing political ideologies may lead to escalating mutual perceptions of threat, and a subsequent arms race that elevates the risk of actual war. Such an arms race is inefficient in its optimal output, as all countries involved expend resources on armaments that would not have been created if the others had not expended resources. That would generate military expenditures resulting in higher taxes and increasing budget deficits.

Also, today we can see that Nuclear deterrence is a far less persuasive strategic response to a world of potential regional nuclear arms races and nuclear terrorism than it was before. It is anachronistic in the age of information warfare since disinformation and kompromat are the current threats to suggestible populations.

Again, it's not our intention to judge Adaptus policies. In fact, we wish to declare that we politically support your country's blockade on Derthalen. The Kingdom of Cristina will not use its military for that manter since our Royal Defense Forces was built only to be the guarantor of the Kingdom’s independence. However, we will close our port to Derthalen products until they agree to retreat in their recent aggressions.

Finally, it is the wish of the people of Cristina to establish a diplomatic relation with Adaptus in a near future so we can initiate the construction of a durable friendship.

May the Blessings of the Good God be upon His Majesty King Augustus and all his subjects inside and outside the beautiful lands of Adaptus.

 

Semper Servus,

QueenNova Maxima Korvini

To: Queen of the Kingdom of Cristina, Nova Maxima Korvini.

Dearest Majesty. 

I must start by saying I, and my nation very much applaud your stand on the use of these weapons, and we wholehearted understand your stance. We agree that there is much need to open a dialogue on these weapons with other nations, and come to some form of understanding to avoid any misuse. 

I must assure your Majesty, that here in Adaptus all forms of weapons that are considered 'Weapons of Mass Destruction' are handled with the upmost care, and a great deal of our military, and general budget is dedicated to the safe handling, storage and frameworks around which these weapons exist. Although beyond that, you must understand I can not disclose much more information. 

We very much also, would like to extend our gratitude in your support for our actions against @Derthalen and their occupations, and use of barbaric practices. We understand the nature of our armed forces are defensive, and we support that continued doctrine. 

I am very happy to see that you and your nation wish to extend formal political relations to us. We would be more than happy to reciprocate. As an initial gesture of friendship, I would extend to you, the formal invitation for you to inspect our Nuclear Arsenal, so that you can see, how these weapons can be handled in a safe and controlled manner. 

Additionally, we would like to formally recognise that Adaptus be open to further relations with the Kingdom of Cristina and we very much wish for a lasting friendship to ensue. 

Your sincerely, 

Grand Consul Ceres Stolos.

      Republic of San Castellino,
      Gazallenoa,
      08/01/2020,
      2:02 p.m.
       
      General Di Foxycionni reread his speech one last time. He was sitting in his office. It was a magnificent baroque-inspired Iverican-Colonial-style room at the top of the presidential palace. The architect had skillfully combined the beige stone of San Castellino, marble, exotic woods and gilding to create this huge building over 300 meters long. Di Foxycionni served himself a third glass of rum. His doctor always told him not to abuse the bottle so as not to aggravate his cirrhosis of the liver, but you don't make 40 years of alcoholism disappear with the snap of a finger. Behind his back, the Secretary of State of the National Capitalist Pact La Joie Divine N'Golo, the Minister of Information and Propaganda Carlos Garcia, the Minister of Defense Diego Fraffre and the Minister of Foreign Affairs Ismael de la Plata were waiting for him on the balcony.After a dazzling coughing fit, Di Foxycionni painfully got up from his armchair and went out onto the balcony to the enthusiastic cheers of the crowd, itself closely watched by 5,000 soldiers and a good hundred heavy tanks very impressive despite their 30 years of backwardness on the world.  Several tens of thousands of San Castellinos had come to the Plaza de la Libertad, gathered at the foot of the presidential palace to hear the announcement of their Supreme Leader. From the presidential balcony, on the seventh floor, the last one, there was a magnificent view of all of Gazallenoa, from the Cathedral of Our Lady of Gazallenoa to the Ministry of Information and Propaganda, passing by Mount Montemount and Mount Montepecho. Underneath, cameramen were busy filming the famous reporter Elio dom Ursullo of RSC National Chronicle. Despite the noise of the crowd, it was still easy to hear what he was saying - it must be said that the Ministry of Information and Propaganda had ample means to invest in cameras and microphones of excellent quality.
      "Our beloved almighty Supreme Leader sounded the informative alarm across the country: a sign that he has a decision of capital importance to communicate to us and to the plebeians, and that it is imperative to turn on your TV set or TFS device if you can't get to Freedom Square. Ah, wait, the President of the Republic, Guardian of Liberty, savior of all San Castellinos, without lying, has just gone out onto the balcony and is about to make his speech. »
      Everyone is silent, their eyes united in one direction: the presidential balcony. A deadly silence reigned. It lasted only a moment, but it seemed like years for the general. Usually, he was never nervous: very sure of himself, a bit gruff on the edges. But this was different.He was about to question the Cascadia agreement between San Castellino and @Galahinda signed in 1963.  This agreement stipulated that San Castellino had to sell 95% of all its oil to Galahinda for 8% of the normal selling price. But this real "diktat" was to end for the good of the party and the nation. So he steps forward before the microphone, clears his voice and prays internally that it doesn't end in war, before beginning his speech.
      "San Castellinos, San Castellinossa, my dear compatriots. I come to you today not as a politician, a military man or an elite member of society, but simply as an enlightened San Castellinos. You are living in misery today and, as I have told you many times before, it is the fault of the communists and anarchists! They rape your companions, they slaughter your children, and they pollute your lands. BUT! we have finally realized that there is another obstacle to development in San Castellino: the Cascadia Agreement. It is a commercial agreement that we were forced to sign with Galahinda in 1963. It stipulates that Galahinda's oil companies have the right to exploit 95% of all our precious oil against only 8% of the selling price ! This is why I have chosen, after a democratic and republican consultation with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, to denounce this toxic and dishonest diktat that prevents the San Castellino nation, our nation, your nation, from getting rid of misery, hunger and poverty. As of today, I am announcing that the Republic of San Castellino will only sell 45% of all its oil to @Galahinda , that the selling price of San Castellino oil in Galahinda will now be 32% of the normal selling price of oil, and that the Cascadia agreement is now broken ! »
      Everyone listened attentively to the dictator's speech. Everyone, except his Foreign Minister who was yawning in his corner. He had spent the night listening to Di Foxycionni recite his speech in order to correct it, so that the general would not end by insulting Galahinda of " impious imperialist autocracy " and that a war would break out. Then, tired and knowing the speech by heart, he yawned discreetly. But it was absolutely necessary that he not be seen by the general or the secretary of state. If one of them saw him, he would surely receive some kind of sanction and, above all, a blame, which would surely block him from reaching the post of Minister of Information and Propaganda when the post would become vacant. Di Foxycionni concluded the speech.
      "... and we hope that this conflict of interest can be resolved peacefully and diplomatically. Viva la República! Viva San Castellino !! Now, applaud and shout for joy or I'll have the crowd shot. »
      Then the crowd starts to applaud enthusiastically and ridiculously energetically and the Supreme Leader contemplates it, visibly satisfied.
      (OOC: You could summarize his reaction with this lmao: https://media1.tenor.com/images/5a7cb78f00f28932cf30c8a55ae2d42e/tenor.gif?itemid=17248464 )
      Di Foxycionni entered the presidential office accompanied by his ministers and the Secretary of State. The crowd continues to applaud for a few more minutes as a precautionary measure and then disperses under the suspicious gaze of the soldiers. Meanwhile, Elio dom Ursullo commented in front of his five cameramen:
      "It was a magnificent speech by General Sullivan Di Foxycionni, absolutely magnificent, ladies and gentlemen. His speech was so evident that we hadn't realized it! What he said was so brilliant and... »
      And he continued to lick the general's boots for long minutes before returning to the RSC National Chronicle studios.
      Now all the San Castellinos were keeping their fingers crossed that this would not degenerate into war. All of them? No.The French-speaking anarchists of San Castellino were rubbing their hands in the shadows of the dark alleys. A war would suit them well: "L'Anarchie triomphera", as they used to say.

      Oil Producing Europan Countries (OPEC, /?o?p?k/ oh-pek) is an intergovernmental organization of petroleum-exporting nations. The countries account for a large volume of Europan oil production and "proven" oil reserves, making OPEC a major influence on oil prices.
       
      OPEC's stated mission is "to coordinate and unify the petroleum policies of its member countries and ensure the stabilization of oil markets, in order to secure an efficient, economic and regular supply of petroleum to consumers, a steady income to producers, and a fair return on capital for those investing in the petroleum industry."

      "Yep, Confirmed boss. Theres Oil under them islands."
       
      "Great! Drilling teams ready?"
       
      "Sure are. We have six tams ready now, and another four can be sent over in the next few days."
       
      "What about outsiders? Oil is becoming very "expensive" these days, can we run that risk of outsiders?"
       
      "This is why we are not making this public, and why i've been a little sneaky. I've hired Vickers Contractors to protect the drilling teams. If anyone gets to close the Adaptons have to commit. So we will have Adapton support, but we have to get our teams in there now."
       
      "Ok, shall we consider this meeting done and dusted?"
       
      "Yep... Lets get to work."
       
      3 weeks later...
       
      Oil deposits had been discovered on several islands throught the Kosscow, the unclaimed islands of 0.2, 0.7 and 0.8. Adapton oil giant. Carlyle Industries, had get it's gritty paws on the area long before any other company could even take a breath. The islands were closed off, and were swarming with drilling teams and Vickers Contractors.
       
      The Adapton government had been the only international power informed. The Adaptons had commisioned It's 2nd Fleet to the islands. The first groups of Adapton soldiers were arriving on the islands. Adapton arrogance was a well known thing in Europa, but this time it may have gone to far, as across the Kosscow, people were watching. As Adapton troops moved into 0.8 the inhabitance, who were anti-Adapton, were not prepared to loose their soverignty. Several communicqu?s had been forwarded to pro-0.8 organisations and governments.
