Project Cocoa Leaf: Glamour's Embassy Program (Open to All)

Postby Glamour » Fri Feb 06, 2015 3:22 pm

The Opulent Citizenry's Demesne of Glamour is the host nation of the First Global Ball, a member of the International Freedom Coalition, and is open for embassy application through Project Cocoa Leaf. It is a non-WA, MT, militarily neutral, cultured, free nation, and instigator of the regional ambassadorial entity, called The Cordial Islands Archipelago of Polynesia, which is a chain of island groups situated in Polynesia in the south-eastern Pacific. The nation is located in this region on the Glamazonian Peninsular Gulf.

Unconditional Conditions for Foreign Embassies Within Glamazonian Soil



Weaponry and Security of Embassies.
Weapons are banned within Glamour. However, there are certain zones within our territory which are sanctioned by law to be able to permit weaponry, including Xerox special forces buildings and civillian shooting ranges in the northern city of Wintour. Any foreign embassy which wishes to be weaponised will, if accepted, be subject to the same laws. However, weapons remain illegal outside of militarised zones, and therefore, any person of any description found carrying a weapon outside of embassy buildings or grounds will have it confiscated and returned to the embassy building upon presentation of their credentials. We would like to add that it is largely unnecessary to be armed in Glamour, however, we do recognise that embassies have sensitive considerations in this regard because of our culture of dissent and rebellion and the very minimal potential of contentious countries' embassies to be antagonised by our citizens. If this unlikely event should occur, the antagonists will be subject to prosecution by the state laws of Glamour. Governments are responsible for the protection of their own embassies, but our police and military will be available and deployed for assistance in the highly unlikely event of an attack.



Regulations and Rules for Ambassadors.
Full body scanners are mandatory in all embassies. Although Glamour is by no means a surveillance state, and values highly individual privacy, we suggest that those working in a foreign but allied country in an official political or military capacity should expect to be subject to certain regulations which ensure the safety of that country, which is paramount above all else to that country. Weapons or ammunition of an incendiary or explosive nature, such as grenade launchers, RPGs, tear gas, stun or frag grenades are not permissible under any circumstances, and neither are sniper rifles or other excessively long-range weapons or silencers. Melee weapons are subject to consideration, as are assault rifles. Most standard mid or close range projectile weapons are permitted. Radioactive, chemical and biological materials are strictly banned. In addition, an ambassador who wishes to attempt to bring foreign foodstuffs, drugs or modified weapons into the country must arrive a week prior to the date of the start of their business, either by air into Concordo or by vessel into Isla, to allow for processing of the goods. Ambassadors who are making their first arrival into Glamour must similarly allow a week to be processed. During this week, ambassadors will be subject to VIP treatment free of charge, will be supplied with five-star accommodation and will be paid by the state for any missed business as a result of the process. During this week, the ambassador must be confined to the resort island of Isla or the Ambassadorial Village in Concordo, but will be provided with high-speed internet access, entertainment and library and spa/gymnasium facilities, among many other things. Travel expenses to their respective embassies from these places will be covered by Glamour.



Legal Implications for Ambassadors.
Diplomatic immunity is given to all ambassadors, except in the cases of personal offences against other human beings such as rape, serious assault, murder or conspiring to commit terrorist atrocities. In Glamour, the justice system is largely restorative and involves the use of victim or family of deceased victim/assailant confrontation should the victim/their family consent, as well as the criminal being sent to live with the tribespeople for a period of time in the wilderness (with the only condition being that they are brought back alive and relatively unharmed) and receiving compulsory courses in ethics and sociology. These laws apply to all criminals in Glamour, who are convicted after a thorough, balanced, unbiased, objective and fair judicial trial. It should be noted that as with all foreign visitors and indeed citizens of our own nation, it is strongly advised that individuals do not enter the tribal sacred lands along the south of Glamour's territory. This is because Glamour does not exercise its judicial, legal or criminal authority over the sacred lands, and they are run by tribal clans on a wildly varying and complex anarchist basis. To enter these lands through the militarised seclusion zone is possible if one wishes to sign a contract with the government, but is done so at the tresspasser's own risk if they are not expressly invited by a tribesperson.



Embassy Staffing and Facilities.
Per embassy, maximum staff numbers are allocated on the basis of the squared area of the embassy itself, which itself is dictated by the size or international standing of the country being hosted. Accommodation is provided to ambassadors and embassy employees which is of the highest quality, and they will receive bi-monthly newsletters from the state as well as frequent discount coupons on a range of activities and trips around the country, which can be either individual or collective as a team-bonding experience within or between embassies as determined by embassies and ambassadors themselves. Our hope is that this will encourage diplomacy in a setting outside of the office or conference room, in a way that will facilitate the free formulation of political negotiation and conclusion in a stress-free and conversationally fluid environment. Recreational and hallucinogenic drug use in the presence of tribal shamans is included in these bonding or individual activities. Ambassadors will receive free admission and VIP treatment at all symposia, national and international celebratory events and awards ceremonies.



Vehicular Regulations and Contingency Plans for Invasion.
Armoured vehicles and armour of the body of all kinds are permitted. The maximum number of vehicles is widely negotiable but algorithmic to the number of staff in an embassy, and weaponised vehicles are not allowed. The event of invasion into Glamour is extremely unlikely, since the Catwalk bridge from Concordo (where the only airport, Electric Phoenix International, is based) and the Bronchi of Boudicca tunnels to the south are rigged to explode and are the only land routes into Glamour. Weaponised naval vessels are encouraged to be brought to Glamour and are expected to assist in defense in the unlikely event of oceanic invasion; they will be housed and maintained in our port city of Aeriela, but aircraft are not permitted, since they may interfere with our Bell Jar system (which is similar to Iron Dome). Any unauthorised aircraft of any description that enters our airspace is likely to be shot down by this automated system, which, despite being highly intelligent, can only distinguish between civillian and military aircraft. The government does not accept responsibility for the destruction of any foreign aircraft that takes flight in our airspace. Only Glamour's military aircraft are immune to detection by the system and they are rarely utilised, and have never been utilised in an offensive or defensive capacity. All embassy buildings are equipped with nuclear resistant bunkers which lead underground into the situation room of Glamour. This room's location is classified and undisclosed to foreign ambassadors and governments, but will house all ambassadors for international strategisation in the event of a nuclear strike.
