    What bits did you change Bair? I hope I didn't convert 'Konradsköping' to katakana correctly.

    Also:



    Of course, attached to this is the British Royal family, which is exceedingly daunting.

    The Kongo Society is a corporatist dictatorship of the plutocracy. In Christinestad, the worker is only as free as the pithy wage he is paid by his slavemaster allows him to be. In Stockholm, he is servant to no man, free to partake of the fruits of his labor in community with all his fellows. Regardless, Daniel Drevot and his band of pirates and vagabonds are enemies to all nations.

    First Proletarian Mannerheim will take peace of mind when the Usurper of Adjuuramark is brought to justice.

    I have edited that into the Treaty. What was incorrect about my transliteration of the treaty's name?

    Well, I read old updates, I talked to Lord of Elves (who ran Scandinavia and was thus the leading expert on its Monarchy), and then I work out what birthdates and death dates work for each Monarch and his/her immediate family. It involves a lot of interviewing, harassing people for info, and doing math to make sure that you don't have a 17 year old Empress of Brazil with a 14 year old son at some point in history. >_>

    As for myself, I've been slowly building this. I started just with my own family, the House of Gyllensvärd (which is descended from the Scandinavian and Pomeranian royal families, which are themselves cadet branches of the House of Vasa), and then I tied it together with Scandinavia. momo and I worked out a branch of the Scandinavian Monarchy that led to Sven, who is now the Roman Emperor, and when Princess Margareta of Vinland married Emperor Pedro III of Brazil, I started to add in the Brazilian royal family into this giant list. The next steps are to fill in a few of the blanks (any point where an unnamed figure enters the family, like Harald II's unnamed wife), and to add in the British Royals, whose current King is married to Emperor Pedro III's sister, Maria.

    The 17 year old Queen of Portugal, daughter of the first Emperor of Brazil, and her 13 year old son. :p

    It used to say "Konurazukopinugu", where the part that sounded rather awkward was the "pinugu" part. My change was to "kopingu", for "Konurazukopingu", which sounds the slightest bit smoother.

    Mm, yeah, I looked for transliterations of Linköping, and I found some that ended it with -ingu and some that ended it with -inugu. I wasn't sure about the former, so I went with the latter as the more awkward but 'safer' choice. Thanks for the correction! :)

    Harald III is actually probably a Vasa (although we've never really decided what the ruling family of Scandinavia actually is)- Gyllensvärd was the family name taken by Konrad I upon rising to the throne of Vinland. The Golden Sword is an emblem of Vinland, appearing prominently in the canton of our flag, and thus was taken as a symbolic action to unite our Scandinavian-Pomeranian monarchy with our nation.

    Doing orders now, if anyone in Western Europe needs money, now is the time to let me know. Here's looking at you Spain, Catalonia, Occitania, Swiss Free State or Sardinia.

    Also, Spain, make sure you mention the referendums to be held in the Basqueland, Andalusia and Galicia. Should you "forget", or more likely just simply forget, the German military will respond. I'd rather that not happen. :p

    EDIT: Too late kids! Orders sent, I'll get you all next year. I sent money to Brittany, the Netherlands, Corsica and India. If I had already promised you a sum, please contact me and let me know.

    Consider this the 10 hour warning to get those orders in.
