Oh. China I picked at random from 5. If you still want it I'll transfer to Tadjoura.
No, it's cool. You do your thing, man.
Colombia reiterates their position on agents that try to cause worldwide chaos and destruction via economic terrorism: we could care less why you feel suicidal, but if you choose to go down such a path, we want nothing to do with it and will do our best to isolate Colombia's economy and canal from your dying economies. It would sadden us greatly to lose the large volume of trade that the Dutch merchants bring through our canal, though we are reassured by the fact that the Dutch proclamation can only be some insane bluff, what with their government being in utter lockdown.
While Brazil is an old friend, and ally, of Colombia, having helped us numerous times against tyrannical invaders, Colombia is an independent state that conducts its own foreign policy.
To: Germany, the Netherlands
Subject: Embargo of Brazil
Our trading relationship with Brazil is of course either basically or actually nonexistent, and as such we had previously thought an embargo may confuse our population, but we are very happy to support Germany and the Netherlands in this effort even if our support is primarily symbolic and meaningful in that our nation is of a different faith than yours; as such we hereby declare an embargo on Brazil. We are also happy to note that any miniscule imports they might have made will surely be outweighed by throwing an obstacle in the way of their disruptive moralist influence on Catholic populations worldwide.
Paris shall embargo Brazil and support Germany.
To Poitou, Normady:
As the legal successor of the Confederation, the colonies in Africa are Parisian and that shall not change.
From what I understand, you still have to pay to adopt the doctrine in full, so, as if you created it, but if you adopt someone else's, their's could have a greater number of overall points into the various categories, thus making it worthwhile to purchase or adopt other people's doctrines.
Elections are handled by EQ, you don't need to think of them, unless you want to write stories about them or encourage revolutionary change in the government. You can be as detailed as you like (when I joined I detailed how house relations and parties worked), but after a certain point its merely flair, as EQ will simplify it for updates.
CC: The World
We will embargo Brazil with Germany.
From: Workers' Commonwealth
To: Anyone Who It Concerns
CC: Lusitanian Pirate Thugs of the South American Continent
We join our fellow members of the Council of European States and our ally Germany in a declaration of embargo of the Empire of Brazil. Henceforth, by mandate of the Revolutionary Government and its First Proletarian Colleague Mannerheim, no labor union or trade collective of the Workers' Trade Congress of Scandinavia shall make any business deal, purchase or agreement with or involving any Brazilian business or the Brazilian government. May this collective effort strike a blow against Brazilian tyranny and aggression.
Signed, His Excellency Karl Mannerheim, First Proletarian of the Workers' Commonwealth, Head of the Revolutionary Government, Syndic of the Manniskorstag and Father of the Revolution
Though it may be little more then a symbol, Catalonia, abhorring the adventurism of the Brazilian government and in support of our ally Germany, will join many in Europe in embargoing Brazil.
To Poitou, Dauphine, Orleans, Normandy, Paris-Burgundy
Firstly, we extend our condolences to the dead and wounded in the unfortunate violence and bombings in Poitou and Dauphine. If problems should persist, Occitania would be willing to help in whatever ways requested, to protect the stability of the region.
On a different note, we also would like to raise the Occitanian economic question again, though, in this new year after the conference. While Occitania thanks the French successor states for allowing us to participate in the economic conference of last year, we are still interested in knowing if the other states would be amenable to extending the open trade borders with Occitania. Seeing as all our economies have been intertwined for what is now approaching two decades, we cannot see how this would not be mutually beneficial to expediting trade.
If Normandy and Paris-Burgundy, who supported our proposal last year, would do so again, and the other three at least state their stance, we could then decide whether to enter private discussion.
Jacksonia hereby WITHDRAWS from the Pacific Concord
To: Brazil, the Nations of the World
We will join an embargo against Brazil.
Signed, King Leopold II, King of Denmark, Lord of Iceland and Greenland, President of the Folketing
and Einar Boye, Statsminister of the Kingdom of Denmark
To Galicia, Euskadi,
Currently in Catalonia, businessmen and women use whatever currency is available, often what remains from our days under Spanish rule, and increasingly the German mark for its superior stability and ease of use. But we are not Spanish any longer and we are not German, though we celebrate in a new-found liberty that would have been impossible without them. We are free post-Spanish states and I invite you to join Catalonia in adopting our own, independent currency.
A new shared currency will tell our people and tell the world that we stand apart, that we have succeeded where many thought we would fail. It strengthens our culture and the pride of our people. It also unites us commercially as we are already united militarily, ideologically, and culturally.
We propose the Toro- symbol of our struggle- as a common currency to celebrate our liberty.
While we wish to preserve good relations and trade with Occitania, we cannot in good conscience stay silent on the plight of the Aquitane people. These lands and people were sold to you by the morally defunct government of Spain just as in ages past slaves were sold between colonial masters. Aquitane is like Galicia, Euskadi, and Catalonia, in having been dominated by an oppressive government. Unlike Galicia, Euskadi, and Catalonia, the Aquitane where not able to escape bondage during the wars of liberation in Spain.
We cannot ignore our brothers in Aquitane any more than we can ignore Galicians or Euskadi. They, like us, deserve at least, the choice to be free.
We urge you to hold plebiscite to allow the Aquitaine to choose their own fate.
In the spirit of European cooperation, Russia will be joining the embargo of Brazil and urge our fellow members of the Forum for Peace to follow suit.
OOC-EQ: Orders sent and kept simple, I'll pop in once a week! It'll also keep me from spending too much time and burning out.
Just as a point of pride though, even with the massive cost overrun, the people of India still got their full taxable GDP and a bit of profit invested in their project and military. The loans only expanded the project spending and got a number of brigades as India was in dire need of, and did not go to the designs. The common man suffered from too many agreements, but not one rupee was taken from their mouths!
To: Germany, Persia, Aztlan, Bulgaria
India has again ordered its couriers to deliver you the VYSHB-27 blueprints.
To: Denmark, Switzerland
India has ordered at-cost production of the Vy-27 and VYSHB-27 for both your nations.
To: Romania, Hungary
India has again ordered its couriers to deliver you the Vy-24 blueprints.
You've stumbled on fastest way to ruin all relations between our countries; pick your battles, friend. Be careful when insulting your two largest neighbours, because not only do you insult Occitania, talking as if our typical form of governing minorities is tyrannical and despotic, but you insult the people you are advocating for, the Spanish, who's government - which still exists and is the dominant power in Iberia - you call "morally defunct".
We put considerable capital down to accommodating the Spanish speaking population in Aquitaine, as we have told Euskadi, you could not have a clearer example of the antithesis of oppression. Additionally, you forget Aquitaine is as many parts Spanish speaking as French-Occitan speaking. The Spanish and Basque people are treated as equal human beings, under the law, and in all other areas of living, because we are an enlightened, good government. At least Euskadi was modest in their stance, but you have deeply offended the Occitanian government, and we request an apology for comparing us to slave-traders.
OOC: Seriously, slave-traders?
We do not seek to antagonize. We merely wish to give a voice to those who have been without one for too long.
Put your dirty history behind you and allow a referendum; And our conscience can feel content that we have not forgotten our brothers in the north. In that way, we can return to friendly relations and mutually beneficial trade.
They have a voice, it's a free country, there is free press, and their are ample translator services. If even more autonomy than has already been generously allotted is requested by the actual residents of Aquitaine, we'll consider it, but right now, the entirety of the pro-autonomy movement consists of a few misguided Catalonian diplomats.
OOC: no update has mentioned discontent since the year of the transfer, so your request is out of the open blue as far as my government is concerned
The Brazilian ambassador sits back in his chair, wry smile upon his face. "You will repay the debt you owe our government, as promised and in full this year. If you do not, God hath no mercy for traitors and debtors."
