Volta membership application


Recommended Posts

FROM: Rosa Braun, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Socialist Federal Republic of Volta

TO: EOS and its member states

CLASSIFICATION: Secret - limit distribution, need-to-know only.

After much discussion within the Socialist Federal Republic of Volta, albeit with much hesitation, the Socialist Federal Republic has come to the conclusion that due to continuing Anglian aggression our best course of action would be to seek defensive partnerships with other countries. To that end, we would like to inquire as to whether or not EOS would be open to such an arrangement.

Our government would like to stress that we are NOT seeking membership in your organization, but we are seeking cooperation when dealing with the very unique and specific threat that Anglia presents the wurld. The proposed cooperation would be mutual, as Anglia presents an equal threat to Volta as it does to EOS member states.

We would like to inquire as to whether or not your organization would be interested in such an arrangement, and potentially begin negotiations to precisely what the details of such a partnership would be.

Additionally, we would like to request that, until such negotiations formally begin, this matter be treated as classified and this information only be distributed on a need-to-know basis.

🔒 CLASSIFICATION: Secret - encrypted

Thank you for your communication. While I do not speak for the entire Entente, the answers to your questions are certainly shared among allies and friends. Because we also have been aware of the continuing Anglian aggression that is expanding wurldwide. Your request for aid and assistance is certainly the first nor last that we will see regarding this Occidental matter.

You are probably well aware that, as a sovereign state that borders the vast Oriental Ocean, your country is automatically entitled to the position of observer within the Entente of Oriental States. The rights and duties that come with this observer status are outlined in the Charter.

However, such a position comes without the defensive partnership you seek. The benefits of a large defensive umbrella are reserved for members only. This is the nature of a defensive partnership: all partners share in the duties and obligations of protecting one-another.

Should the government in Vien wish to benefit from this EOS defensive shield, then there appears to be a clear path forward.

Thank you for your response. While the fact that the path to membership is open is duly noted, we would like to respectfully point out that there is a distinct deficit of trust between Volta and certain recently admitted members of the Entente of Oriental States. Without said deficit of trust being addressed, I'm afraid our government will not be able to formally apply for full membership or even observer status.

However, we would like to again emphasize that our offer would not be entirely one-sided, nor would it be a generalized defensive alliance. We are seeking for cooperation when dealing with the unique and specific threat that Anglia, and it's allies and puppets, pose to the peaceful order on Eurth.

Needless to say, the Socialist Federal Republic is preparing its own defense with our forces. However as Anglia has expanded within Europa, and is seeming to have its sights set much further. As such, it is the belief of our government that, in spite of our differences, we all stand a better chance against this unique threat if we work together.

OOC: Which members do you mean exactly? Could this be about the Occidental Democratic Republic of Sitallo? If so, I'm afraid this country will no longer exist, with @Metztlitlacapushing the reset button.

OOC: San Castellino. According to stuff I've discussed with them OOC they will have likely historically supported and probably do still support the Voltan government-in-exile for ideological reasons (my understanding is they are super anti-communist). Though @San Castellinomay come and correct me if I am wrong.

OOC: Aha, I understand. @Esonicemade a similar remark. By joining the EOS@San Castellino will have to comply with the several human rights regulations in the EOS charter, notably §3F and §4G. Other than this, it looks like we'll have to find an alternative way to cooperate. If defensive protection is what you seek, perhaps we can work out something that involves the Manamana canal. Preventing a conflict from erupting there would be beneficial for the both of us.

OOC: Yeah, that's what Volta was thinking as well. The canal likely makes Volta a prime target, though it probably wouldn't be attacked right away at some point Anglia will probably be concerned about Volta closing the canal off to it and its allies in retaliation for their expansionism. Volta for its part would refrain from any drastic measures (like closing the canal off to Anglia) in the beginning phases of the war as well, but as the war expands (and potentially threatens Volta more directly) who knows what would happen. My guess is that both Anglia and Volta know this.
