    Signed, Viceroy and Political Chief Superior Alfonso Luís de Carvajal y de Nuevo León

    And furthermore, the Viceroy would like to clarify the position of the Imperial government as it concerns the legitimacy of the USSA. We recognize the sovereignty of the USSA, and we shall regard any attempt by the other sovereign nations to abrogate this sovereignty as an act of wanton aggression. Clearly the people of that nation have decided to take their fates into their own hands. We hope that other peoples who have suffered at the hands of the Slavers and their New Pharaohs will take a note.

    In the meantime, New Spain swears its commitment to guaranteeing the independence of the USSA.

    @Crezth "The New French Confederacy and the American Republic hereby demand the immediate retreat of New Spanish forces from Texas and a recognition of Texan independence and territorial sovereignty by the Mexican government."

    Nova Afrika would like an assurance that Coalition forces will not intervene in Florida. We are worried that the American Republic will use this war as an excuse to drive African communities out of Florida. Any troop deployment in Florida by the American Republic or her allies will be considered an act of war against the Nova Afrikan Republic.

    I'm going to set the deadline for 12 Noon EST January 2nd, 2020. While this is a considerable amount of time, it is out of deference to those of us who have filial duties during the holidays.

    In the meantime, if you want to keep your hands busy, there will be a Vexillology Contest. Submit the best mockup of an in-game flag before the update is posted and win an in-game prize. Note that this doesn't need to be the flag of your nation.

    New Spain thanks its associates in Greater New France and the American Republic for their concern and their offers of help. It is, however, unnecessary, and the ambassador from New Spain would like to assure all of the concerned parties that we have the matter well in-hand and will see to a peaceable resolution in a fraction of the time that the problem has hitherto festered.

    As a token of our gratitude please accept these bottles of fine tequila. And we would also like to remind you all that your governments are welcome to establish embassies in Mexico City, the new capital of the Spanish Empire.

    Salud!

    FYI the Nova Afrikan Republic mobilises to the fullest possible extent and militarises its borders. For whatever that means in this IOT.

    The Republic of Nova Afrika have learnt of a great plot by the American Republic, supported by the French (including Illinois), to invade Florida and remove the Nova Afrikans and Seminole living there to free up more land for Anglo settlers! They have also made moves to subjugate our great Republic! We will not stand for this injustice against the Nova Afrikan and Seminole peoples! We declare war on the slavers! Nova Afrikans of Illinois and the South, rise up! They wish for you to go back into chains! We stand with the Nova Afrikans and the Seminole of Florida! Together we will push the slavers back to the sea!!!

    The Provincial Administration of the Frontier issues a formal protest towards the other three nations of the New French Confederacy that it has not approved of either the blockade against the socialist regime in New York or the declaration of war against New Spain, which we assume will be done shortly.

    The laws of the Confederate Charter may bind ourselves to the New French combined foreign policy, but we would rather the spokesperson for the New French Confederacy speak for the New French Confederacy (which we are a part of) rather than speaking directly for us.

    As long as we are afforded the proper respect as an independent nation albeit united by the common cause, we promise to abide by the will of the Confederacy, but we did not exactly have a massive pan-continental war in mind when we agreed to the charter.

    We are disturbed and shocked by New Spain's military cooperation with the violent revolutionaries who have seized the American Free State. The Viceroyalty of New Spain, whose Iberian homeland was ripped from their commonwealth by the very same Communist conspiracy, is promising to fight, shoulder-to-shoulder, with those who have humiliated and tortured their people? Madness. New England wonders what havoc this unholy alliance will cause among the citizenry of the New Spain, who surely look with embarassment and horror at their government's proclamation today.

    We have found out that we have been declared war upon by Nova Afrika in what we admit to being a slightly amusing situation. We will rectify this unfortunate situation with what we hope to be a minimal loss of life and property.

    We take such accusations very seriously. We assure New England that we are very strong champions of the basic rights of man and the ancient traditions of our society.

    New England, as you are our friend and you’ve seen your way clear to build bridges between these wayward children of the new world - surely you can see your way clear to endorse our peacekeeping operations in Texas?

    New Spain's contributions to the betterment of mankind are many - it is in this light we cannot comprehend New Spain's ties to the Philadelphia insurrectionists.

    We have not yet determined a diplomatic position on the events in Texas... New Spain, as a friend who's judgement we do not wish to reassess, surely you can see your way clear to revoke your diplomatic arrangements with the so-called "USSA" and endorse our necessary blockade? Doing so would quicken our decision-making on events in Texas.

    To New England
    From New Spain

    Among enemies of our way of life, we count two above all others: the first is European communism, the second is American republicanism. In Europe, the communists have torched our homelands. In North America, the testaments to American mischief adopt many faces. In Texas or in Pennsylvania, one can see the recoiling tentacles of Atlanta politics.

    New Spain, of course, approves of the New English blockade. The situation requires a tight handle. But unless New England wishes to pay for the American Republic's mistakes indefinitely, they'd be well-advised to consider that they will require a more permanent solution. Yes, you may eventually affect a resolution in this "USSA," but will that just be a patch in the dike, to breach again at the first sign of adversity? Or is there, indeed, a reason this circumstance has come to pass in the first place? What makes men go communist? Whence cometh that rot in the soul and social fabric?

    In Europe, the progenitor of the communists was Germany. In North America, that progenitor can only be the American Republic, whose mismanagement and obsession with Mammon have driven by this point countless men to darkness.

    So in our mission in Texas, we believe sincerely we are doing our part against the Devil. And New England has been fighting the Devil for 400 years. Neither of us need ally with a lesser evil. If you would denounce the Republic for their mishandling of the situation in the Free State, and if you would endeavor not merely to allow Atlanta to dictate policy to the Free State but rather to institute your own policy, and if you would publicly declare your support for our affairs in Texas, then New Spain will defer to New England on the matter of the Free State and endorse New England's leadership to direct the policy of the international community for this issue.

    @Belgarion95, I'm afraid I won't be processing your orders for this turn, I'm still sick. You are welcome to send for next turn.

    Everyone, please remove all conditional if/then statements from your spending. It's too much work for me when half of you are doing it, and some of your conditions interact with other people's conditional spending.

    As New Spain has not satisfactorily complied with the legitimate requests of international order and has not withdrawn from Texas, the international community of French America and the American Republic must regrettably issue a declaration of war against New Spain in support of Texas and it's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

    IN Mexico City,

    this bastion of Law & Order.

    This guarded temple of Faith & Freedom.

    A NEW KING HAS BEEN CROWNED!!

    All Hail,
    Rey Amadeo II del Imperio Español

    Firstborn of King Amadeo I, God rest his soul,
    Born Luigi Amedeo of the House of Savoy

    AostaAbruzzi.jpg


    Long May He Reign.

    The new King of Spain, Amadeo II, was coronated last week in Mexico City. Amadeo II expressed true Christian humility in light of his crowning, and expressed patriotic pride in addition to that. "I rule not only in my name, but for the honor of all of Spain," he is heard to have said. Amadeo II furthermore praised the civil government of the Viceroyalty of New Spain, lauding the virtues of Viceroy Alfonso Luís de Carvajal. The Political Chief Superior, speaking briefly before the crowd, praised the character and aptitude of Amadeo II, and proclaimed that a brave new age awaited the Spanish Empire. This came alongside the royal wedding, the very next day, of Amadeo II's fifth son, by his wife Her Resplendence Queen Faduma, Luigi Giuseppe Amedeo, to the Viceroy's daughter, Apolonia Sierra Teodara de Carvajal.

    Treachery among the French!
    ¡Traición entre los franceses!
    "What's that!" you cry. "Have we not been betrayed enough?" The French are, in many ways, a tragic lot. Pulled to and fro by fate, their homeland has less to show for it being destroyed by Germans and their communist puppets. Whereas Spain, a country of bold and noble people, will endure the chaos until we can liberate them, France is not so lucky. Who can save France?

    Certainly not Canada and its minions in Chicago and New Orleans. These fools have chosen, against the very meaning of reason itself, to rebel against the Entente, and pledge themselves to the aid of Texas, affecting a state of war with the Spanish Empire. What could compel such madness?

    Look no further than Atlanta, my brothers and sisters, and the heart of Satanic ideology. A Godly man looks upon the world and feels humility at his place in it. A Satanic man looks upon the world and says "Of what use is this to me?" That is the essence of the very spirit of the American Republic. These greedy locusts destroy everything alike in their mad pursuit of power. They know no God, no Divine Law, no morality, they only know the size of their criminal hoards. So it was with Texas, a province where the law of God was repelled by Republican designs in order to prolong their slaver interests.

    Just as our wise and just leadership has sought to correct this historical mistake, so have the New French decided their lot is best thrown in with the unholy plutocrats of the Republic. What does their homeland need? What does France need? An ally loyal to the Entente. What has New France delivered? Chaos and discord!

    God alone can correct this madness, but we citizens of New Spain, we conquerors of the new Era, we shall overcome and see justice done!


    Onwards, to victory!

    Nova Afrika’s Ambassador to New Spain, William Monroe Trotter, attended the coronation of Amadeo II.

    “On behalf of the Nova Afrikan Republic,” Trotter said in a public statement outside the Nova Afrikan Embassy in New Spain “We congratulate Amadeo II on his coronation. He will be the strong leader that the Spanish Empire needs in these difficult time. We stand with New Spain in their righteous fight against the Satanic ideology that kept our forefathers in chains.”

    The Flag of New England

    Adopted as the official flag of the Dominion at the turn of the century, the New England flag is based on the British red ensign. Underneath the Union Jack are nine red stripes representing the nine provinces that federated into the Dominion of New England (those provinces being Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut). A shield on the right includes the Saint George's Cross of England as well as an eastern white pine.
