    Would you be willing to revive the Union of Kalmar in the form of a military and economical alliance?

    No. We would like to get closer with the Danish people, but Denmark has proved uncooperative in the past and it strikes us as slightly odd that you'd offer such a deal. As of now, we have to deny your request.

    @EQ/bestshot/whomever: could anyone explain me what happened between the Danish Empire and the Swedish Empire that now they aren't exactly in the best relationship?

    Politics in the Danish Empire

    In the Danish Empire, legislative power rests in the unicameral National Danish Parliament, the Folketing. Each of the representatives of the nation has been chosen through indirect vote, with each party designing lists of possible representatives for each province and region and the voters choose the party over the candidates, as all of the candidates think on the same brainwave, so to speak.

    Each party is represented by a letter, so that in the newspapers each party is known by it and not by the long names, which are only used in the sessions of the Folketing.
    The five most important parties have representatives' lists in all the territories of the Empire, giving them the edge in every election, which are celebrated every 5 years.
    Socialist: Dansk Socialistik Folkeparti (represented with an S)
    Liberal: Dansk Fremskridtspartiet (F)
    Moderate: Dansk Venstre Parti (V)
    Conservative: Dansk Konservative Folkeparti (K)
    Reactionary: Dansk National Arbejderparti (A)

    There are also a group of minor parties in the territories of the Empire. These are normally groups of people that wish to receive independence and go their own separate way, but they are a minor group as the national parties have a bigger following. The most known of these are in the following list:
    Ataqatigiit (Greenland Independentist Party, Q)
    Sjálfstæðisflokkurinn (Iceland's Independentist Party, I)
    Kommunist Parti (Communist Party, O)
    Nijer Parti (Nijeria's Independentist Party, N)
    Zambi Parti (Danish East Africa Independentist Party, Z)

    The Folketing (Danish National Parliament) reserves a certain number of seats for each of the territories of the Danish Empire: Denmark gets 230 seats, Nijeria has 30 seats, Danish East Africa has 20 seats and Iceland and Greenland get 10 seats each.

    In the last elections, celebrated in 1897, out of the 300 seats of the Folketing (Danish National Parliament), the voting gave each party the following seats:
    Party Letter - Percentage of votes - Seats
    Denmark
    S - 11.5 % - 22
    F - 13.9 % - 38
    V - 25.4 % - 58
    K - 44.8 % - 104
    A - 2.5% - 4
    O - 1.4% - 3
    Others - 0.5 % - 1
    Total - 100 % - 230
    Iceland
    S - 12.0 % - 1
    F - 15.7 % - 1
    V - 22.5 % - 2
    K - 34.3 % - 4
    A - 5.7 % - 0
    I - 9.7 % - 1
    Others - 0.1 % - 0
    Total - 100 % - 10
    Greenland
    S - 16.5 % - 1
    F - 21.2 % - 2
    V - 17.7 % - 2
    K - 25.4 % - 3
    A - 9.7 % - 1
    Q - 9.1 % - 1
    Others - 0.4 % - 0
    Total - 100 % - 10
    Nigera
    S - 29.5 % - 9
    F - 24.6 % - 7
    V - 18.1 % - 5
    K - 16.0 % - 5
    A - 2.1 % - 1
    N - 9.4 % - 3
    Others - 0.3 % - 0
    Total - 100 % - 30
    Danish East Africa
    S - 25.7 % - 5
    F - 23.5 % - 4
    V - 20.7 % - 4
    K - 19.1 % - 4
    A - 1.2 % - 1
    Z - 9.7 % - 2
    Others - 1.1 % - 0
    Total - 100 % - 20

    Danish Empire
    Party Letter - Seats
    S - 40
    F - 53
    V - 72
    K - 120
    A - 6
    O - 3
    I - 1
    Q - 1
    N - 3
    Z - 2
    Others - 1
    Total - 300

    The Konservative Parti won the elections with an absolute majority that would allow them to lead the country with commodity, as they would be able to push the legislature they wanted through without any problems.

    All right we've got 7 hours before all nations come off of old reservations to be open for everyone, and 11 hours until I do Update 0. If you have any non-spending orders to express or would like to creativize (yes i just made a new word) your nation like Milarqui did above and JTK did in orders, I would recommend it.

    Oh, NO! I am not going to let the Danish Empire go after investing so much time in developing some history!

    I still need someone to explain me what happened between Sweden and Denmark in the past.

    @sp1023: I did not note you on the old stats from ABNW. Did not realize you were in it. I will call this one in Milarqui's favor though, because of the effort he has already put into it.

    @Milarqui: Sweden and Denmark had an off-on relationship since 1830. Sweden would occasionally attempt peace efforts only to be rebuffed over and over and over. Denmark also constantly pushed its claims on Norway, also raising tensions. In other words, things havent been friendly there for a long time.

    From Pensylvania:


    Greetings my fellow Americans. You are already my top importers, what say you to an additional trade pact and perhaps a defensive alliance?

    OK, WTH was the one who drove Denmark-Sweden relationships to the floor?


    From: Danish Empire
    To: Swedish Empire

    Estimated King of Sweden,
    This message is sent to you in the hopes that relationships between our countries can better soon. It is known that, in the past, our countries have had many differences, but the current Government feels that it is time to try and reverse the bad things done in the past. That was the reason why we sent you such an important message before. If you prefer to start slowly at first, perhaps with a normal trade agreement, we would be more than happy to follow it.
    We send our apologies for not responding positively to your attempts to keep peace between our two nations and hope that this time peace can be finally reached and our relationship betters.

    Signed,
    King Christian IX, Monarch of the Danish Empire.

    Buenos Aires!

    Actually, quick question: Is Buenos Aires incorrectly labelled as a protectorate? It is the only nation listed as such in the nation list.

    From Virginia

    Pennsylvania and Virgina have had a long and complicated relationship, being anywhere from allies to enemies. But, as we do wish to put all of that aside, we believe the best way to start these things is to start them slow. Enhanced trade is a good first step. If Pennsylvania promises Virginia to only buy cotton and tobacco from our Kingdom, we will lower tariffs on Pennsylvanian industrial goods.
