Subject: Water shortage offer of assistance

On Friday, February 5, we learned through the international media that a desert storm has knocked out the power to one of your desalination plants. Recognising the immediate danger of a potential water shortage, our country would like to offer its assistance. With your permission, we will send a Seawater Desalination Vessel (SDV) to supply fresh water while your engineers work on their repairs.


The ship can produce up to 50 million gallons per day (mgd) or 200,000 cubic meters (m³/d) of drinking water daily. Seawater is drawn through the intake system using low-velocity pumps, reducing the impact on sea life. The intake is equipped with a passive screen that minimises entrapment. Discharge water is diffused back into the ocean. For many years we have used this is environmentally friendly process to support populations on our smaller outlying islands, as an alternative solution for land-based desalination technologies. Our merchant navy also employs on-board desalination to generate the fresh water to satisfy the regular needs on board.

International solidarity is an important part of our foreign policy. Improving the bilateral relationship between Orioni and Cashar, beyond the existing framework, is part of this policy. Currently, most of the available desalination technology have been purchased by the 'richer' countries that turn very quickly to their internal needs. This Orinese offer is in line with our country's continued support for greater cooperation between Oriental countries.

Most Respectfully,

Councillor of Foreign Affairs Anna Hackney

OOC: This type of ocean-going desalination vessel was first proposed in 2008 and has been operational since 2010. That would be plenty of time to actually get the technology in production. The main constraints I see here would be getting the ship across the ocean. But that's something to figure if Cashar accepts the offer of assistance.

Lovely, wonderful, absolutely opportune to have received your offer of assistance. The distance between our two countries is vast, but your offer has closed a different kind of distance between our two glorious countries. We are willing to allow you to pass peaceably through our waters in order to supply the country with the water it needs up until such time that our engineers can return one of our critical desalination plants back into working order. Our country's borders are, of course, also open to your people, aboard this vessel or otherwise, should they wish to spend some time on land. 

In addition, we're quite interested in this sea water desalination vessel and would be open to looking into purchasing options in order to utilize such technology in the future. We're also curious as to whether rolling out a new line of Orioni-themed merchandise for the Cashari public to enjoy and consume would be considered tasteful and respectful and a fair show of appreciation or offensive. Let us know. 

International solidarity is an important part of our foreign policy as well! A valued ally is a value worth its weight in gold. We'd look forward to discussing business with you at a later point after the water shortage crisis is over. 

Truly, sincerely,

Amset Gogol, CEO of Getgo, Inc.

Foreign travel advice for Sunset Sea Islands (SSI)


The Diplomatic Office of the Council of Foreign Affairs advises against all but essential travel to SSI, based on recent political events.

As of 19 April 2021, the @Sunset Sea Islands military declared a state of emergency and assumed control. Politicians, members of civil society and some foreign nationals have been detained by the military. Political tension and unrest are widespread since the takeover and levels of violence have risen. The military has ordered a nightly internet shutdown, various internet platforms have been blocked and reports of disruptions to wider internet and phone networks are widespread.

Access to money has become increasingly difficult with banks shut and some ATMs not working. A nationwide curfew is in place and we advise you keep yourself up to date in your local area. If you are not able to leave SSI at this time, you are advised to stay home and stay safe. If you need to leave home for essential reasons, you should do so quickly, avoiding crowds.

The Diplomatic Office advises Orinese diplomats in SSI to leave the country by as soon as possible. This change in the level of advice follows a significant decrease in political stability on 19 April. Some staff and dependents in the Orinese Embassy have already been temporarily withdrawn. The Embassy will continue to carry out essential work, including providing 24/7 consular assistance and support to Orinese people in SSI.

If you’re planning to return to the Orioni from SSI, there are still commercial means available to return to the Home Island, but these may decrease further. Flight connections to Orioni can be affected at short notice by curfew restrictions being imposed. Further delay in leaving SSI could increase your risk of additional costs at your own expense.

To: the Council of Foreign Affairs of the Omorfoautokrateia ton Orhionion, the Beautiful Empire of @Orioni

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


Your Excellencies,

The Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion rarely contacts your great nation, for better or worse. It seems that in recent years, our nations and governments have fallen into the habit of ignoring each other in the main, letting each other carry on our own affairs in our own respective parts of Europa.

However, the government of Orhioneia is likely aware of a conflict that appears to be spreading. The Regaseia tes Megas Angleias, the Kingdom of Great Anglia, has occupied the Sosialdemokratikí Synomospondeia, the Social Democratic Confederation, and is engaged in an armed conflict with the Demokrateia tou Kyptou, the Republic of Qubdi. This latter event is alongside the Megas Regaseia tes Souberinas, the Great Queendom of Suverina, as Megas Angleia has undertaken a military alliance with them. The armed conflict started as an invasion by Kypton of provinces that are disputed between them and Souberina.

At no point does it seem that any nation involved in this crisis attempted to resolve the situation peacefully. Several times, the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion has offered to mediate, in order to defuse the tension. The first time, the government of Megas Angleia ignored this offer and went ahead and conquered the Synomospondeia, driving out the legitimate government and installing a puppet regime in its place. It appears that my nation's offer will be ignored again, likely meaning that the war between the three nations will be fought until one side has been defeated militarily. This is not something that my nation can let slide, as it puts the stability of the Occident and Amutia under threat.

Because of this, as your government may have seen, the Megas Agios Basileia has put into place an embargo against the three nations involved – Megas Angleia, Souberina and Kypton. The embargo is aimed to damage the ability of those three nations to wage aggressive war against each other, in the hope that they will then all see sense and try to settle the matter peacefully. Arhomaneia's ally, the Exousiokrateia ton Gharon, the Sovereign Imperium of Machina @Haruspex, has also recognised the severity of the crisis and instituted a similar embargo against the nations involved.

To this end, I would ask the Orhionioi to put into place an embargo as well. It is appreciated that the Omorfoautokrateia may not wish to be dragged into the affairs of the Occident. Equally, your government might not want to place sanctions against the Souberiniki government, as I know that your nation has good relations with them. However, in order for these embargoes to work as a tool to bring the nations to the table, they must be placed against all of them. Given time, as more nations place embargoes against them, they will realise the error of their ways and cooler heads will prevail.

As well as that, the Orhionioi are respected throughout the wurld, as a people and as a nation. If your nation takes a certain course, then there is a chance that others will follow. If the Omorfoautokrateia stands against a certain action, may also mean that the Angleioi, Souberinoi and Kyptoi will take note of the course of their action and rein themselves in.

Through prayer and action, peace will be returned to Europa.

(Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion of the Megas Agios Basileia ton Arhomaion)
CC: Mr Nikomedes Georgius Artemios, Orinese ambassador to Tekemeti

Your Excellency,

Similar to many Europan and Eurthican states, the government of Her Imperial and Royal Highness is outraged over these events occurring in Ingalizi (Anglia), SDC, Suwalina (Suverina) and Kupitiki (Qubdi). We strongly condemn this unprovoked attack by the Ingaliziye government. 

For many years now the Occident has been a powderkeg waiting to explode. From the assassination of  theprevious Suverin monarch, to the accidental death of @Adaptus' head of state, and the atrocities in Kashiya (Cussia). And now again in former Aroman areas. Would your government enlighten us with an explanation for this regular occurrence of misfortune?

News media appear to be fanning the flames. Reporting based on unconfirmed sources by a duo of hand-selected journalists will no doubt lead to much additional confusion. It is strongly advised that your government seek more direct control over the framing and narrative.

At the moment it is the position of Orioni that we support the government-in-exile. This decision of support will include, amongst other measures, the immediate imposition of sanctions against the Anglian aggressor, its leadership and industrial capacity to wage war.

Recent actions by the current Suverin government are inconsistent with previous policy. Until such time as these actions can be explained, we will, however, refrain from placing similar sanctions on our longtime ally and partner @Suverina. It is the opinion of our government that we must support the Suverin people in freeing themselves from the Anglian yoke and this Qubdian attack.

Lastly, I can claim with a high degree of confidence that the Entente is prepared to take all measures and precautions necessary to preserve the Europan peace.

Mrs Anna Hackney
Cllr of Foreign Affairs

OOC: Yes to sanctions against Anglia. I want to see how this plays out before going any further with Suverina and Qubdi. Some secret source inside Suverina would be nice to create a second perspective.

To: the Council of Foreign Affairs of the Omorfoautokrateia ton Orhionion, the Beautiful Empire of @Orioni

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


Your Excellencies,

Whilst the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion is certainly disappointed that the Orhioniki government is not yet prepared to go to the lengths necessary to try to prevent the conflict from worsening, the reasons for doing so are understandable. Ordinarily, the Megas Agios Basileia does not feel the need to explain its actions to foreign powers, but it is felt by His Aroman Majesty, Kommodos III, by the Grace of Christ the God, Holy Emperor, Autocrat and Equal-to-the-Apostles, that it is necessary at this juncture. May the Orhionioi view this as a compliment, due to the standing of their nation.

It does indeed seem strange that the Souberinoi have apparently let themselves be so guided by the Angleioi, especially going as far as to sign a military alliance with them. As yet, there does not seem to be any very good answers to the questions that this poses. The most obvious answer is that they were intimidated into joining an alliance by the presence of the Angleioi on their western border, but that seems to be entirely at odds with the Souberiniki mindset. Otherwise, perhaps the new regime of the Megas Regaseia has other motives, beyond merely preventing themselves from being the next step in Angleiki aggression.

This matter is being investigated by my nation, in order to ascertain the intent behind this. It could well be just that the Angleioi were attempting to secure their new border and the Kyptoi attacked due to feeling threatened by this military alliance. Likely, with the ongoing conflict with the Ghallamvrioi meant that the Kyptoi could not afford to miss what they saw as an opportunity before this new alliance was cemented.

But – fundamentally – it was an aggressive act by Kypton, which is why Arhomaneia called for an embargo on them. Similarly, the previous actions by the Angleioi meant that an embargo against them was almost inevitable, unless they drastically reversed their course of action. Which they did not do. It is realised that your government questions the necessity for one against Souberina. It is because, whilst they are now involved in a defensive war with Kypton, it is seems that their government at least tacitly supports the actions of Megas Angleia. Otherwise, something such as a non-aggression pact could have been signed by them, if there was need for anything at all. Pressure on the Souberiniki government will weaken the Angleiki yoke and open the eyes of their people to the blind alley that they are being led down.

As a further note, please do not assume that the Arhomaiki government is so blinkered as to utilise a single foreign news source as the basis for its foreign policy. Whilst our attention has often been on situations beyond the Occident, we do monitor the events near our borders closely.

Similarly, the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion does not have to explain to the Orhionioi the reasons for events beyond its control. Events like the deaths of foreign heads of state. The Megas Agios Basileia strives hard to maintain peace and stability in the Occident, and it is only in recent years that this peace has become fragile. Indeed, as an example, Arhomaneia was the first nation to take in the refugees from Koussoeia after they were ejected from their homeland and deployed units of the Tagmata to act as observers to try to rein in the Gharoi.

Pointed questions could be asked about the ongoing anti-piracy operations in the Orient that appears to have dragged on for almost four years with little sign of abating. However, it is clear that Orhioneia and the EOS are attempting to not just combat piracy but stop the problems that lead people towards piracy. This the same drive that the Arhomaioi have, one for peace.

God will see to it that peace is restored and the injuries are healed,
