Your Eminence,

Salvia and Ahromaneia come from the same stock, although we have drifted apart over the intervening years. Perhaps too far apart, as both the Salvian and Arhomaiki people still share much with each other.

Both of our great nations hold Christ's teachings above all and, although perhaps it could be considered that there may be some variations in how these are espoused by our nations, it is the love of God that shines through. Not only do we share faith in Christ, but our two nations also have a common heritage – it was, after all, Arhomaneia where Liosous set sail from in order to spread the word of God to foreign shores. And truly he did, as Salvia has stood strong ever since.

In an ideal world, these ties alone would be strong enough in the face of adversity. However, the current mood of Eurth appears to be a darkening one. Nations that tread the path of righteousness such as ours need to cooperate, in order to strengthen the ties between Christian nations, as well as to make sure that our ancient civilisation can weather any storm that does wash against us.

A first step would be to consider our nations' economic ties. Easing trade between our nations will undoubtedly work towards strengthening both of our nations, as well as helping our citizens understand each other better. Even at the moment, our nations do undertake a considerable amount of trade with each other, but this could undoubtedly be improved, to the benefit of both of our people.

For example, passion fruit from Salvia are regularly found on the shelves in supermarkets in the Megas Agios Basileia, and mobile phones manufactured in your nation are commonly used by Arhomaioi. Wine is often bought and drunk by the people in Deopolis or Minotia and textiles from Arhomaneia are sold in Salvia. The Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion feels that our nations ought to consider easing the tariffs that are regularly levelled against the imports from foreign countries, as well as viewing any trade restrictions that might be put against the produce of our respective nations.

It may also be considered by the Logothesion ton Kommerkiarionikou, the Ministry for Trade, that to show that the Megas Agios Basileia is willing to open our arms to our friends in Salvia that the fees charged on Salvian-flagged ships passing through the canal between the Raga Sea and the Krankes Thalassa, the Ranke Seas, will be reduced, in order to facilitate trade between our nations. This, however, be subject to the agreements that we are able to make, and what might be reciprocated by the Sanctum Imperium Catholicum.

We will have much to discuss in any talks between myself, my government and representatives from your nation. Similarly, at a future date, it may be for the worth of our nations to look at visa restrictions between our nations.

May God's light shine upon your nation and your people,

Takitos Khalkeos,

My brother in Christ, 

 

It is with great joy that I receive further contact from Megas Agios Basileia ton Arhomanion, one of the sole lights that still shines on Eurth.  As our two nations pass further deeper into a troubling and uncertain future, it is only appropriate and proper that we venture forth together under the Sign of the Cross.  Stronger ties between our two nations are needed, and economic incentives will surely foresee this goal. 

The lightening of trade restrictions, tariffs, and other taxes are a good first step.  Other economic deals should be hammered out in the future as we inevitably become closer allies, as well as special incentives for both Salvian and Tagmatine companies to work and prosper in either nation. 

To return the favor of the lowering of fees on Salvian ships passing through the mentioned locations, Tagmatine ships flying into Salvian ports shall experience the same beneficial treatment.  While we should obviously discuss more economic incentives and opportunities during official talks, these promises should be dealt with first. 

The lure of economic incentives, such as less regulation and a priority of either nation’s goods will undoubtedly create a stronger economic, and therefore political, bond between our great nation.  The economic benefits that will be reaped from either nation will only encourage our people to connect and become closer.  Issues such as visa restrictions will of course naturally follow this connection. 

These economic trade deals only serve as the stepping stone towards a greater and stronger Christian alliance, that must look past our differences and focus on our shared traits- those of courage, righteousness, and wisdom- that will guide our nations towards God’s path towards salvation. 

 

With the blessing of Archbishop Patrick Saulius, Servant of God, 

Minister of the Sanctum Imperium Catholicum’s Trade and Finances

To his Eminence, Archbishop Salius, through Leo J. Conway, Trade Minister of the Sanctum Imperium Catholicum.

Your Eminence,

I thank you for your reply to my message.

It was with great delight that I was able to pass on your reply to his Imperial Majesty, Kommodos III, by Grace of Christ the God, the Agios Basileos kai Autokrator. This will undoubtedly be the start of a great future for our two nations, one which strengthens the power of the Faithful across the entirety of Eurth. Perhaps the other nations that share our love for Christ can take heart from the fact that, as you rightly say, despite our differences, our two great nations can work together for a brighter wurld for everyone.

We will, of course, be able to iron out any disparities between our nations' trading practices once we begin to discuss this treaty. As you may well be aware, Arhomaneia holds that environmental protections are a key policy, as a tenet of the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion is that Man was appointed by God to look after His creation. Whilst it cannot be denied that this is not something that is supported by all followers of Christ, it is something that might be considered by his Eminence. However, the Laren Treaty, of which the Megas Agios Basileia was amongst the first signatories of, has been controversial with some governments.

Again, I emphasise that this is something to be discussed at a later date. Our nations have much in common, though there also much in the way of cultural differences between our noble people, which will have to be navigated in order to get an agreement that is a fair and equitable starting point for a brighter tomorrow.

May God continue to guide His Eminence and the Salvian people,

From: His Eminence Archbishop Patrick Saulius through Leo J. Conway of the Sanctum Imperium Catholicum 

 

Brother in Christ, 

A furthering of our relationship is only beneficial to our goals.  United through our shared ideals- tradition, family, courage, faith, and strength- Salvia and Tagmatium will prosper for years to come. 

I and the people of Salvia wholeheartedly agree with your assessment surrounding the environment.  God gave humans free reign over His domain and to mistreat it is to betray His Trust and go against His will- two grave sins.  As such, the Saulius administration pressured members of the Concilio Populi to accept the Laren Treaty adaptation proposed a few weeks ago, which will go into effect in the next couple years.  Our nations will lead as examples through the 21st century as saviors of God’s creation. 

At the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion’s request, a diplomatic envoy will be sent to Tagmatika to discuss and iron out a special deal from which both our nations will benefit from.  The promotion of economic cooperation, easing of visa restrictions and encouraging immigration, and greater cultural and national cooperation between our nations must be discussed and will be in due time. 

 

May Christ be forever with you,

Minister of the Sanctum Imperium Catholicum’s Trade and Finances

From: His Eminence Archbishop Patrick Saulius through Vernon McCoy of the Sanctum Imperium Catholicum 

 

My brother in Christ,

 

With Salvia beginning to emerge on the international stage with the guiding arm of our Tagmatine compatriots, it is wise that our cooperation go beyond economics and enters the military realm.  While our military relationship is still young, the Saulius administration believes that further cooperation with Arhomaneia will only benefit both sides.

I have been instructed by the Saulius administration to inquire about the proposition of Salvia purchasing one of the two Despotes class aircraft carriers that Arhomaneia currently owns.  If accepted, this proposition shall be discussed during our official meetings in Tagmatika.

I hope that the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion sees the sensibleness of this deal and accepts the proposition.

 

Yours in Christ

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

To his Eminence, Archbishop Salius, through Vernon McCoy, Defence Minister of the Sanctum Imperium Catholicum and Leo J. Conway, Trade Minister of the Sanctum Imperium Catholicum.

Your Eminence,

Whilst I must be circumspect about aspects of this, and I do ask for your forgiveness for that, I must say that the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion is already in discussion with another nation about the Despotes class vessels. Please do not feel that Salvia is anything less than a key partner of Arhomaneia, but it was felt by the Agios Basileos kai Autokrator that your nation should be warned of this before this matter got any further. I do not wish to disappoint his Eminence or the Salvian people, or lead you or your nation to think that my nation feels that yours is the lesser party in our relationship. That could not be further from the truth.

However, my government is of the opinion – and the second nation seems to be indicating as such – that they wish to purchase only one of these vessels. If this is indeed the case, I cannot see why purchasing one of the Despotes class shouldn't be included in further trade talks between our nations.

I can also suggest to the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion that we could have a discussion about further military cooperation run concurrently with our trade talks, if you so wish. After all, both of our nations might have expertise that the other may lack – if nothing else, the varying nature of our nations' climates and terrain could mean that there might be opportunities to gain experience by liaising or, even, training in each others' nations.

With regards to the Laren Treaty, I must thank His Eminence for acting as he did. It is appreciated by the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion that this would not have happened without the expenditure of much political capital by the Salius administration. Whilst we will undoubtedly see the benefits of more environment-focussed governments across Eurth, and that steps that we take to relieve damage against His creation, such actions are praiseworthy. I shall see to it that these actions are kept in mind when we are getting down to the details of our talks.

May God forever guide our nations,

Your Eminence,

In order to facilitate the trade discussions between our two great nations, it is felt by the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion that it would be wise to invite a delegation from the Divine Imperium to come to Arhomaneia to carry out negotiations in person. This, if it pleases you, would be much more suitable than continuing these delicate discussions through messages, as we have been doing so up until now.

If you agree, my Logothesion can then set up an internal discussion group between the various Logothesia and industries that may be affected by a trade deal between our countries, so that we can present to you what we think is a deal that is fair and equitable to both of our nations, and all parties. I imagine that you will do the same and this will be the basis of the start of our talks.

To that end, once your government feels that it is in the position to start these talks, I would like to issue an invitation for your delegation to come to Tagmatika, so that we may begin.

May Christ forever be in our hearts,

Recipient:  Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion of the Megas Agios Basileia ton Arhomanion [@Tagmatium Rules]

 

Brother in Christ,

 

His Eminence President Archbishop Patrick Saulius as directed me to gracefully and wholeheartedly accept your proposition.  As this letter is read a delegation is being prepared in Deopolis to sail north and visit your blessed land in order to hammer out a fair and prosperous agreement between our two nations.  As my colleague has also mentioned and you have so graciously accepted his request, the purchasing of a Despotes class aircraft carrier by the Salvian Ministry of Defense will also be discussed.

The formalities and schedule of this meeting can be discussed at a later time, as well as the prospect of state visits by our respective leaders.  I pray God blesses this meeting with His fruitful grace.

 

Christ be with us,

Alvon Russo
