By Tagmatium Rules
To: Their Excellency, Oiguina Escoffier, Trade Minister of the Autokrateia ton Megas Zaxareia, the Empire of Greater @Zaxar
From: the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion of the Megas Agios Basileia ton Arhomaion
It has been noted by the Holy Imperial Government that your nation is on the verge of becoming one of the largest suppliers of lithium to the rest of the wurld. This is primarily due to the fact that your nation has some of the largest and most readily exploitable reserves and sources of it on Eurth. It has also been noted by my government that your nation has already struck a trade deal with at least one of your fellow Aurelian nations and it also seems that word has got out that Tagmatium is equally interested in pursuing such a deal with your nation. This, I can very much confirm, is the case.
Whilst your nation is not the only nation with available sources of lithium on Eurth, the Empire of Great Zaxar is the only one that the Greater Holy Empire is interested with doing business with at this time. Your nation has shown itself to be a nation whose star is rising at the moment, and it would be in the interests of my nation to help this star to continue to rise. Although we would envision this to be a reciprocal relationship between our nations, as such a relationship would be of benefit to both Zaxar and Tagmatium. To this end, I am requesting that your government facilitate talks starting between your nations' lithium mining companies and companies within my nation that are keen to utilise this source, to enable the export of lithium to Tagmatium.
Whilst this trade would be a good next step in the short history of relations between our nations, there is undoubtedly more that we can do for each other. In order to make this more of a wide-ranging trade deal, one that benefits both of our nations beyond just trading in lithium, I would also request that our nations use this opportunity to investigate what tariffs might be reduced against the other products that can be sourced from our nations, what investment opportunities might be available and what further aspects of trade that we could encourage between our nations.
For example, my nation is known for its expertise in farming, and a standing deal exists between Tagmatium and the Dominions of @Metztlitlaca whereby experts from my nation help to improve the farming techniques employed by the farms of Metztlitlcaca. Equally, my nation is a main exporter of farming machinery, fertiliser and other related products. I know that Aurelia has one of the most extensive rail networks in the New Wurld, and there are several locomotive works that would be keen to do business with state- or privately-owned rail companies in your nation.
The people of Tagmatium, the Holy Emperor and I await your reply.
Through faith in God and through trade, we can bring the wurld's nations closer together.

Hello there. Here is my application for a place on the map for Transbaltia.
Nation in Eurth:
Thank you to @Vostau for making the flag!
Capital name: Tavliga
Capital location: [coastal? in-land? riverside?] See the map
Factbook/iiwiki link: https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Transbaltia (a work in progress)
Culture: Mixture of Baltic cultures, with Prussian/Baltic German (I’ll think of a new name) domination in politics)
Climate: similar to real Baltic states, can have warm summers but cold and icy winters.
History: Not done a lot of history yet but Transbaltia is made up of several duchies, over the years they have fallen into the hands of their neighbours, Transbaltia was formed just over a century ago after its liege nation lost a war and Transbaltia was made a protectorate of the victory nation. Since then Transbaltia has gained its independence, and is a modern and prosperous country. However there are tensions between the ethnicities, and the power of the (Baltic German) nobility is being threatened.
If It fits the point is would like more land in the central north. The Capital is called Tavliga(yellow dot) the second city is called Kaurtburg. The borders can be fixed to be better but I would like to border uppsund and dazhdinia. Thank you.
