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 If this current assault with the Demokrateia tou Kyptou is ceased and your nations' forces are withdrawn to their respective start lines, including those of the Megas Regaseia tes Souberinas who are acting in concert with yours, then the Agios Basilikon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.

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.

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.

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

by the Grace of Christ the God,

Agios Basileos kai Autokrator kai Isapostolos ton Arhomaion

To: Sir Algernon Edgeyton IX, Minister of Empire of the Kingdom of @Great Anglia

From: Mrs Anna Hackney, Councillor of Foreign Affairs, Orioni

Subject: Situation in Europa 

Esteemed colleague,

The Occidental-Azanian crisis and the lack of progress towards a peaceful solution is becoming increasingly worrisome. In particular, the threatening military movements of the Occidental-Azanian Pact near international waters of the Oriental Ocean.

It was your country's offensive actions to gain a foothold on Lysian sovereign territory which initiated this conflict. And it is for this reason that in May 2021, the Joint Quorum of the Entente of Oriental States outlined and implemented sanctions against your country for initiating the current conflict. 

Orioni is eager to obtain reliable, legally binding guaranties ruling out the eventuality of OCA’s eastward expansion and the deployment of offensive weapons systems in Azanian countries neighbouring Ayubi and Damak Var.

The Orinese government believes in the importance of maintaining bilateral relations through open lines of communication. We recall the fact that our two countries maintained neutral relations through much of the last 100 years. This historic relationship must set an example for maintaining diplomatic relations and working together within today’s reality.

We propose to hold an open discussion, at a neutral location of your choosing.

Sincerely,

Foreign Cllr Hackney of Orioni

FROM: Ekwueme Okorie, Occidental-Azanian Pact Foreign Affairs Representative

It truly dismays all nations in the OCA to see the Orinese government take the stance they have. Your message was forwarded to our office, to ensure that all members of the OCA, which Anglia is a part of, understand what is being asked of it. Of course this message will not leave the confines of the OCA diplomatic mission.

Despite some common misconceptions, Anglia does not run the OCA, as all member nations are of equal value to the pact. For many decades Europa has suffered from collapse and stagnation, and only some lucky few nations have been able to escape such a horrible fate. We are resolute in our determination to restore the former splendor of Europa before the collapse. Such an immense mission requires sacrifice, and while our member states regret having to use force, it was determined that for the good of Europa that the unaligned states of Azania be brought together in unity.

However we can understand the fear from the Entente in such a tumultuous time. We are of course willing and desire continued diplomatic relations with our eastern brothers and sisters in Europa. As Europans, we should all stand together to build a better future for our continent. Representatives from all OCA countries, of course including Anglia, will attend any conference Orioni wishes to set up.
