    Do you decline both non-aggression and safe passage for our missionaries?!

    Non aggression pact means neither of us will attack the other. The non aggression pact never said anything about missionaries.

    The American Federation of Syndicates, while normally pro-native rights, sometimes wonders the sanity of the ex-Iniut nation.

    That being said, we are flattered by your desire to not go to war with a nation on the literal other side of the country enough to want to formalize it in writing. However, we must respectfully decline, as we do not want to be seen enabling your backwards reigme (we can say that, right? Borgie natives are still borgies?).

    EDIT: And Divine Mandate, get your opiate away from us. We suffered enough under the oppresive yoke of "Christian values". We need not new lies to replace the old.

    Excuse me for asking, why is a nation based on the Great Lakes caring what happens in Alaska?

    Those are the claims of the American Republic (brown red economic, green military):

    Spoiler Claims :


    If any neighboring state has some problem with those claims, we are willing to negotiate.

    Because Spartan diplomats came to us asking for a non-aggression pact. We don't want to be involved just as much as you dont want us involved.

    Also, RE: Divine Prophet missionaries, we are open to all and any creed, so long as they:

    1. Approve of usury
    2. Approve of gambling
    3. Approve of various forms of marriage
    4. Approve of currency
    5. Do not incite violence
    6. Do not cause the spread of disturbing ideas, such as "currencyless future" or "anarcho-syndicalist communes" or "Pacifica isn't the greatest country" but especially pro-Mexican propaganda
    7. Pay their taxes on time.
    8. Do not try to get out of estate taxes by claiming that this land is, in fact, "holy" land
    9. Do not indoctrinate our people into their weird cults/religions, like Scientology in the past
    10. Do not aggressively propagandise their beliefs. Every citizen in Pacifica must seek out his faith via his free will, not by the words of an incensed madman.
    11. Disavow any forms of violence
    12. Do not try to establish a theocracy within us.

    This is the shortened list. Please contact your nearest Pacifica embassy for more information!

    Positive Developments for Peace


    Louisiana and New York have signed a non-aggression pact.

    Iccan Religion Spreads

    Thousands of Louisianans have converted to the new Iccan faith. Among these converts are several national congressmen.

    Mississippi will be Free

    President Jackson has declared that towns in Mississippi have been harboring terrorists and war criminals. He says that an invasion of Mississippi is necessary both for security of Louisiana and for the freedom of Mississippians.

    Red: military force
    Yellow: economic persuasion

    The Divine Mandate and New York will know peace; a non-aggression pact has been agreed.

    We are at least pleased of non-aggression but we are saddened you wish not to save your people from evil.

    The Divine Mandate cares not for materialist cultists! Your deceit will not prevent our grand objective to make a haven on Earth, for your heathen ideology will not stand before the truth of the Prophet. The Truth of the Iccan will be embraced!

    1) as long as it does not promote decadence...
    2) gambling is decadence and decadence is sin.
    3) marriage is the bond of souls.
    4) currency can be used in tithe. Of course the haven we will build will have only the currency of virtue, for the meek will inherit the Earth.
    5) why you ask? The followers of Iccan will not insult the Prophet by soiling the image of Our Holiness. If you show aggression to our flock however...
    6) anarcho-syndicalists are materialist cultists and Mexico is repressive against the true believers.
    7) they also pay their tithe.
    8) the Earth is holy; our objective is to heal the Earth, not to have your citizens fail in their civic duties.
    9) Scientology is a falsehood.
    10) we spread the truth, not some insanity. We will spread the word as what it is: the path to salvation!
    11) will this include the violence of war, including your military? We cannot forbid our followers from defending themselves but we will reject unjust aggression.
    12) only your populace may conduct that.

    Praise the Prophet!

    Well, we think that your ideas are rather...well, unorthodox, especially with your strange and outright bizarre definitions of "decadency". Not to mention that there's no "true truth" existing. Just the vast expanses of Earth, waiting to be claimed.

    It's so inevitable, it took us nearly 2060 years to get to the point where a Syndicalism is viable in just one state?

    Try farming a bit more in your worker collectives and then speak with us. With all due respect, of course.

    At least the labors of our people yield more than paper.

    This "paper", as you call it, is the main source of freedom and liberty of every citizen living in Pacifica, friend. The money you gain with your sweat is yours and all yours, and you can use it on whatever you wish.

    Preferably in a casino, however.

    In time those of decadence and other forms of malice will answer before the one true faith.

    Do Syndicate members make good touches?

    Prophets and profits have done nothing for this land or its people. No gods, no masters, no servants, no slaces.
    The Internationale extends an open invitation to states willing to accept these truths.
