CC: the governments of the Megas Regaseia tes Souberinas (Great Queendom of Suverina), the Demokrateia tou Kyptou (Republic of Qubdi)

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

 

Your Excellency,

Arhomaneia is not used to being ignored, so it came as some surprise to the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion when the offer to act as a mediator between Megas Angleia and the Sosialdemokratikí Synomospondeia, the Social Democratic Confederation, with the hope of resolving the crisis peacefully, went unanswered. It seems that your nation did not wish for this to happen, so that Arhomaneia's attempts to defuse the situation and end the conflict was brushed aside. This certainly speaks of ill-intent behind your government's actions, but perhaps the actions are merely ill-judged.

Again, the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion is willing to act as a mediator in this conflict. Your government, that of Megas Angleia, Kypton, Souberina and the Sosialdemokratikí Synomospondeia will all know the history that Arhomaneia has with all of the nations involved, that at one time or another our nations have been rivals. Because of this, you can be assured that the Megas Agios Basileia will strive to work for a solution that is to the satisfaction of all of the parties involved.

To this end, in the hopes of once again bringing Europa back to a period of peace, before it was so thoughtlessly shattered, the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion will place a series of embargoes and sanctions upon the Regaseia tes Megas Angleias, the Souberinoi and the Kyptoi. Make no mistake – the aim behind these is to limit the ability of your nations to wage offensive warfare against each other and bring more pain and misery to Europa. They are to target both the nations themselves and individuals within your governments. If this current assault with the Demokrateia tou Kyptou is ceased and your nations' forces are withdrawn to their respective start lines, including those of the Megas Regaseia tes Souberinas who are acting in concert with yours, then the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion will consider whether it will lift the sanctions.

These sanctions are as follows:

  • A ban on the sale and export export of arms, ammunition and armaments to the four nations involved.
  • A ban on the sale and export of raw materials, including but not limited to iron ore, coal, seed oil, petrochemicals.
  • A ban on the sale and export of foodstuffs, agricultural goods, farming machinery, transport equipment, heavy machinery.
  • A ban on the sale and export of automotive parts, vehicles, machinery.
  • A ban on the sale and export of computer equipment, software, hardware, telecommunications equipment.
  • Freezing of accounts and financial exchanges relating to the governments of the nations and members of said governments.
  • Any vessels, military or civilian, registered in or part of the navies of those nations will no longer be able to use the Dhioryga tou Isthmou (Isthmus Canal).

Whilst it saddens the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion to have its hand forced and to put these sanctions in place, as they will undoubtedly hurt the ordinary Angleioi, Souberinoi, Synomospondoi and Kyptoi, it is felt by my government that there is no choice. Until the point that peace is returned to Europa, they will remain in place and any hurt inflicted on those ordinary people will be firmly at the door of the government of Megas Angleia, rather than any other body or people. Equally, the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion will reserve the right to place more strict sanctions on any of the nations involved if the situation does not show sufficient steps towards peace, or begins to worsen further. If need be, peacekeeping forces from Arhomaneia can be dispatched to make sure that the conflict does not reignite.

As a final note, the forces of the Regasia tes Angleias or its minions will not infringe about the territories of the Megas Omospondí Autokrateia tou Adaptou (Grand Federated Imperium of Adaptus), Gerousiastikí Omospondeia tes Sporseias (Senatorial Federation of Sporsia) or the Despotaton tes Euandreias (Kingdom of Euandria). Their borders are to remain inviolable. If Angleiki forces are reported to have crossed over these borders, whether in force or in small numbers, then the Megas Agios Basileia will consider that a direct act of war against the Aroman people, no matter which of the Aroman nations they reside in.

In that event, a state of war will exist between Megas Angleia and its lackeys and the Arhomaioi. And Arhomaiki strength of arms will prevail, as it always has.

May God see to it that the hand of the Angleioi is restrained and that peace returns to Eurth.

@Tagmatium Rules have coexisted side by side for centuries, something that I personally believe must continue forward for the good of Europa. Of course I can understand the position you must find yourself in, your neighbor has suddenly become involved in military conflicts stretching from the former Social Democratic Federation to the edges of Suverina. You may be wondering what our goals are, what we are truly after. 

Europa is sick.

 

Our home has become a shell of its former self. The collapse has ravaged Europa more than any of us thought possible. While some countries have recovered, such as your own realm, most of Europa is in disarray. The nations of the New Wurld have begun to usurp Europa’s rightful title of supremacy over this planet, a situation that Great Anglia, and myself, find intolerable. There was a time that Aroman supremacy was absolute, Ide Jiman military might was unquestioned, and the central Europan states teemed with the riches of boundless trade. Dear Emperor as a man worthy of his prestige, I know you of all people can see what we have all become. Even the great Adaptus has gone almost silent and your impudent neighbor of Haruspex continues to test the collective patience of the entire world. It’s time that Europa be healed, and I can only hope through our help.

 

Anglia and Tagmatium would make natural allies, and we have seen how you work closely with our misguided children, Gallambria and Seylos. As we are all Anglian, it only shows that the possibility of strong cooperation between Tagmatium and Anglia is only inevitable. Together we can bring the light of civilization and prosperity back to Europa, which needs Anglian stability and Aroman wisdom more than ever.

 

I of course understand your concerns at our maneuvers and want to directly assure you that Anglia has no desire to infringe upon Tagmatine sovereignty. While our public foreign relations may trade barbs in the theatre of the public, you have my personal assurances that Anglian forces will not drive east to threaten your position. Though of course the aggressive Qubdi may… cause problems in the future.

 

Stand with us great Kommodos, let us return Europa to prosperity.

To see the passage of the so-called socialist republic to the south, is unfortunate, but not entirely unexpected. The absorption of The Great Queendom of Suverina was thus expected as well, why stop at the tip of the southern Occident? 

The Sovereign Imperium shall therefore order no such embargoes, or any other measure against Anglian presence within the region. However, any infringement upon Tagmatine territory itself will result in aggressive posturing. Say what you will about us as you wish, we are honor bound to our neighbor concerning the bearing of swords. 

Should it not trespass uponst that soil, or that which we have claimed, there will be no issues to be raised with that of the Kingdom of Anglia. 

This is an authorized communique of the Imperial Throne, Council of the Nine and the Third Circle.

Emperor Kommodos, I come to you now knowing the strained affairs both of our nations find themselves in. A situation that I believe both of us must find most distressing.

To: His Majesty, Creighton of the House of Odell, King of @Great Anglia

From: His Aroman Majesty, Kommodos III, by the Grace of Christ the God, Holy Emperor, Sole-Ruler of Arome and Equal-to-the-Apostles

 

My son,

Europa is ailing, certainly.

The last decade and a half have not seen much good come to the continent that is often regarded as the heart of civilisation on Eurth. You are correct in saying that and you are not the first in doing so. That the powers in Europa have been content to stand by and allow the east of our shared continent slip into turmoil and ruin is a black mark upon all of us. It is something that I have directed the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion to try to reverse in recent years, through the Northern Europan Development Fund. It has met some success, although perhaps not as much as could have been hoped.

Equally, your majesty is correct in pointing out that Arhomaneia has been able to recover better than many other nations in Europa. But do not mistake this recovery for one that has come easily, one that has come at the expense of others in Europa, nor one that has come about in spite of the New Wurld. It is one that has come about through cooperation with the New Wurld and with other nations in Europa. And this is something that I would wish to see continue and spread throughout not just the Occident, but wider Europa. And ultimately across Eurth.

I imagine you have heard the rumours surrounding my consolidation of power in Arhomaneia in the aftermath of the civil war sixteen years ago. I will not confirm whether those rumours are true or if they are false. Whether they are lies spread by those who wish to have done harm to my rule over the Megas Agios Basileia or not, I feel that they are illustrative of my determination to do what I believe is right by my nation, God's nation.

And my determination to do what I believe is right by God's Eurth, too.

Due to this, I accept your assurance that the Regaseia tes Megas Angleias under your leadership does not wish to infringe upon the territories and rights of the Arhomaioi. It should be a given, certainly, but you and I both know that nations often and regularly infringe upon the rights of others. I would gladly accept your offer of alliance between our two nations, if you were not so coy about what it might be that it would mean or what demands would be made of Arhomaneia. Trade is being built again between Europan states, but it is not just the continental web of trade that our parents and grandparents might have been used to. This web of trade is beginning to tie the whole wurld together, instead. Similarly, I would accept your offer of healing Europa, but I fear I do not hold to your ideas of having to be so ready to use the scalpel rather than the salve.

As I sit upon the Leopard Throne, the senior throne of all the thrones on Eurth, whether monarchical, democratic or dictatorial, I feel I have the right to give you counsel. Do not let yourself bite off more than you can chew and remember that peace is a more effective guarantor to prosperity than warfare is.

My son, I am willing to stand my nation beside yours in order to return Europa to prosperity and work with the rest of the Wurld to help bring an era free of want for all of us, not just Europa. Arhomaneia does certainly count those nations that you mentioned amongst its friends and I have no doubt that if your were willing to approach them, they too would count Megas Angleia as one. Together, alongside other Europan nations and those in the New Wurld, we could certainly make a new epoch.

But I am not ready to build our prosperity by enforcing pauperism on the rest of Eurth.

May God guide you towards the path of peace,

Kommodos III

Agios Basileos kai Autokrator kai Isapostolos ton Arhomaion

      Hello there, I know it is highly uncommon for a relatively new person which has done so far only few things for Eurth to ask for a NPC nation to be station on their border, yet here I am.
       (note, the north-western and easternmost boundaries should align to the rivers, I found only a pixelated jpeg version, so the drawing there is approximate)
      I would like to ask for this nation to be formed south-west from me, being named "Dazhdinia" in Anglish and "Daẑinıja"/"Даҗіния" in Dazhdin (a slavic conlang I am working on which relies on nasal vowels and yats). The general idea of the country is to be a general eastern european counterpart for my roleplay, having the general history of a authoritiarian takeover of the country in 1920's, which resulted in a conflict with @Walneria which ran concurrently with the Stedorian-Walnerian war and ended up with a defeat and an economical collapse of the right-wing authoritarian government and a communist revolution in late 40's or early 50's. Then, the nation might've aligned itself closer to other socialist nations in the region, most notably @DPR Velaheria and @Stedoria. In late 80's or very early 90's, a peaceful revolution was crushed by a military action and the new regime has displayed extremely authoritarian tendencies, which in turn caused it to lose ground and succumb to the second, violent, revolution in 1998. Eversince then, the nation has greately recovered from the economical desparity it faced back then, but it also has a long way to go.
      The general idea for a nation is a counterpart to the past and current countries of the former socialist bloc, most notably Yugoslavia, Poland, Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union. At the present day, I envision the nation as a federation of five countries. Three of them, Posąvragia (capital in Gromųva, which is also the federal capital), Kozlųka (which is the ethnically deverse half-Posąvrag half-Syranik heart of the nation, similar to Bosnia) and Syranika (capital in Jilinsk) are Dazhdin (similar to Serbo-Croat, there would be some rather tense discussions on wether Dazhdin is a single language with Posąvragian and Syranik literary forms or if it is a language family consisting of Posąvragian and Syranik), while the other two are of different ethnicities. I envision Ljukrina (capital in Brěgava) to be a rather multi-cultural region with many Ustokans (Czechs) and Maleniks (Sorbs) living in the area, maybe with a possible Dolch (German) language offshoot and some Slovak population. And finally, there is the Jalivia (capital in Kolikovo), which is the westernmost part of the nation. I want to leave that one's history open to potential people which come to settle next to it, but in general, it is probably the most different region of them all and possibly has a rich history of secessionism.

      The flag itself presents the diverse nature of the nation: the blue stripe stands for the Posąvrag eagle, while the green stripe stands for the traditional green Syranik shield, which features a fleur-de-lis (both or and argent were used). The white in between is often interpreted as the "middle road", but it is rather more likely that it was simply a tincture used in both of the coats of arms. The wreath is possibly the most controversial part of the flag, because it may ring the bell of the blood that was spilled in the name of socialism, but in this case, it stands for the general fame that Dazhdinia is bound to achieve if it just tries to reach it.
      Out-of-character, it would provide Walneria with a semi-direct sea access and would pose an interesting dilemma in Walnerian politics - Do we align with a struggling democratic slavic nation over a highly organized germanic brother? Do we need to align at all? - With those things and many more, such as the idea of multiple Dazhdinia-Walneria interractions, I would really love to have that nation added.
      The general displacement of points on the stats are: 2 for economy, 1 for area and 1 for population
      If there is anything I neglected to mention, please be sure to remind me over it!
      Sincerely, @Walneria

      Aidan woke up to the sound of knocking on his bedroom door. He grumbled and rolled over looking at the clock on his nightstand, groaning when he saw the time at just past two in the morning. The knocking on the door persisted as he swung his legs over the side of the bed. "Yes yes I hear you just hold on!"
      He threw on some sweatpants and a shirt and threw the door open to a wide eyed young attendant. "I swear to god if someone isn't dead I'm going to fire someone."
      "The King of Fearannteth You Majesty... died tonight." The attendant said, gulping.
      Aidan closed his eyes for a moment, "Of course he did. Alright lead on."
      The two of them left the bedroom walking through the halls of the Royal Palace towards the building's situation room in the basement. At the end of the hallway was an elevator that they both got in with the attendant hitting the basement button.
      "So are you just the bad news guy?" Aidan asked turning his head towards the attendant. "I swear every time something terrible happen, Ceris falls into chaos, or some important bloke gets murdered it's always you knocking at my door."
      "Oh um... I'm just the night attendant Your Majesty." The man replied sheepishly.
      "I have a night attendant?"
      ------------------------
      The Royal Council had already convened far ahead of Aidan's arrival, and despite the time of night, the room was buzzing with activity as Councilors spoke with each other and aides made their rounds dropping off documents. What had brought them all together though was some of the worst news they had heard since the beginning of the war in Ceris. The first nation in the New Wurld had fallen to the Anglians, and without so much of a fight. It had been startling to the Ministry of Foreign affairs when one of their diplomats had come rushing back to the Seylosian embassy in Paisley telling them to immediately begin emergency exit protocols. They had barely finished destroying sensitive documents when Anglian soldiers showed up to the embassy grounds and began forcibly escorting the occupants out. Nobody had seen this coming and the rapid capitulation to Anglia was something to behold as well.
      Two guards within the situation room opened the door revealing a tired King Aidan walking in rubbing his eyes and taking a seat at the head of the meeting table. "Alright, somebody want to tell me why the entire council has assembled for a foreign head of state's death?"
      "Because that foreign head of state's death had led to Fearannteth being effectively annexed by Great Anglia." Minister Tatum said.
      Aidan sat up straight in his seat, suddenly looking much less tired, "Good god what? Anglia is in the New Wurld now? That haven't even fucking finished with the old one?"
      "Unfortunately it gets much worse," another man said, standing up. Director Darryl Haig ran the Foreign Intelligence Services and had been monitoring the situation for some time, "We've confirmed delegations from Anglia being sent to multiple countries... including Dolchland."
      "Dolchland?" Aidan replied angrily, "Director, under no circumstances can Dolchland be allowed to align themselves with Anglia. We are spread way too thin as it is."
      "Of course Your Majesty, we are taking steps for the moment to try and get any intelligence on their meetings. The FIS is confident however that what happened in Fearannteth couldn't happen in Dolchland." The Director replied.
      Minister Tatum spoken up, "We've already begun the process of contacting other nations regarding the incident. We'll be focusing on other Eastern Argic nations as well as trying to organize some sort of response with Metzlitlaca and Oyus regarding Fearannteth. We've also taken the initiative to gather the NAU council to begin deliberating on a unified response."
      "Alright then," Aidan said, pausing a moment to think about something. "The king is dead, but what about the princess? Eileen right? I think I met her a few times when I was younger. Director Haig, do you think we might be able to extract her from Paisley?"
      "It's certainly possible, our intelligence assets within the country are mostly intact. More importantly is gauging whether or not she will want to leave. I'm sure Anglia will not be happy that we'd be adding another government in exile."
      "Well maybe they should stop exiling governments then Director," Aidan quipped. He sighed and leaned back in his chair, "Alright I'm guessing this is another all nighter. I'm going to guess the economy isn't going to like this at all either."
