No sense standing on ceremony, let's get right to it.

From: Aimeric II, Prince of Sicily, Sovereign Custodian of the Catholic Church
To: Our Dearest Egyptian Cousin

We greet you with unending affection. We believe it meet to reaffirm our longstanding amity, and our impassioned, eternal commitment to the protection of our brotherhood of faith.

We are troubled, however, by the lack of coordination between our respective churches. Naturally we agree that the Papal authority is in abeyance for as long as the temporal power in Rome corrupts that noble edifice, but nonetheless, the immemorial hierarchy of our Catholic Church must be respected. An assurance from your Council of State that the religious decrees and the hierarchical position of the Archbishop of Palermo are premier to those of the Egyptian church, and that the Archbishop of Alexandria, as first among equals within the Egyptian church, is subordinate to the Archbishop of Palermo, will ease our conscience.

The costs of compliance with the dictates of a lawful hierarch are naturally in excess of those levied upon the unbound heretic, and in recognition of this duty we are more than willing to grant an appropriate allowance to the relevant bureaux for the purpose of ensuring ecclesiastical unity.
Si quelqu'un veut un mouton, c'est la preuve qu'il en existe un.

Sarai, you mean? Well, it wasn't the same Sarai, but the old Horde capital declined precipitously after the Horde broke apart. It's nothing special nowadays.

The beglerbeglik has a fair bit of autonomy, at least when the Khan is in Samarkand, and Crimea has even more. The government, so far at least, hasn't really tried to force much on the Tatars beyond getting them to pay taxes, protect trade routes, stop fighting each other, and provide troops. The state's done a good job of aggregating the tribal interests, and it's all working fairly well so far.

Various Tatar groups on the steppe; the Kimek Tatars are the most prominent, probably. Kalmyk Mongols and Kirgiz Turks are the dominant groups in Transoxiana.

Not so much in this TL. You've got some, but not that many and they're not a focus, what with all the cavalry and wide open steppe.

The Order leadership doesn't really believe you're properly converted, and, yes, would like to profit from Lithuania's division while they can. There are elements within the Order that oppose such a course of action, because of your nominal Christianization, and the broader Monastic Church would be unhappy with the Order if they did move.

Good, but yours is not as good as it used to be. Zygimantas has turned out to not be as obliging as the Danes expected, and has been less forceful in suppressing paganism than they'd like.

They're mostly monks. And besides, their pay is overwhelmingly in-kind, and arranged by their local districts; it never reaches the central treasury in Lyndanisse.

Is there a bureaucracy, and if so what is it's nature and how widespread and effective is it? Is there a Kurltai of the tribes/ethnic group? What is going on in Afghanistan? And what is the status of the Khante of Samara and Kazan at this point?
