OOC DISCLAIMER
(PLEASE READ)


Visitors should regard this thread as an in-character thread and treat it accordingly. Please read the list of available addresses to determine which ones are vacant before making claims. I will not give you a lot that I have already agreed to reserve for another user. In addition, please do not post if your intent is simply to claim a lot and then forget about it for a long time. In other words, I would like you to refrain from engaging in hit-and-run posting since it takes up lots that would otherwise be used by my active roleplaying partners. I have imported a number of claims from my old embassy thread. Please check the roster to determine if you wish to keep the ones you have or move your diplomats to different accommodations.

Lastly (but most importantly), I owe a debt of thanks to Yohannes, Ganos Lao, Alfegos, Mokastana, Stevid, New Hayesalia, and several others whose embassy exchange threads I used to assemble a pool of ideas for constructing this one and subsequently improving it. There is no estimating the scale of the inspiration you have all provided.

MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS
DIPLOMATIC EXCHANGE PROGRAM

INTRODUCTION


The Monavian government is exceedingly pleased to invite the governments of sovereign states and various international organizations to dispatch permanent delegations to the Imperial Federation and establish diplomatic facilities therein. For a thorough and comprehensive introduction to the Imperial Federation, please consult our series on Monavian politics, history, culture, and legislation.





ROSTER OF DIPLOMATIC FACILITIES


All embassies will be domiciled in the Monavian capital (Chalcedon) for administrative and practical reasons, though no such restrictions exist regarding the locations of consulates and other facilities. The Imperial Federation also contains numerous cities that your nationals may wish to visit in the course of conducting their business affairs and leisure activities, so your governments can establish consulates in any of these locations to represent their interests and provide them with various services and access to communications with their home countries. The Monavian government is also pleased to support efforts on the part of foreigners to educate Monavian citizens about their cultures, values, and beliefs by establishing cultural centers throughout the Imperial Federation. All applications for diplomatic facilities must comply with the terms of the Code of Diplomatic Facility Regulations.

§6. Fortifications: Diplomatic facilities shall not contain any fortifications constructed to resist a military assault.

Article V
Diplomatic Immunity


§1: Eligibility: Ambassadors of all ranks, envoys, chargés d’affaires, consuls, attachés, consular officers, honorary diplomatic officers, and foreign nationals employed at diplomatic facilities are eligible for diplomatic immunity. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reserves the right to grant diplomatic immunity to other persons at its discretion. All eligible persons are free to invoke diplomatic immunity in connection with official actions not taking the form of violent crimes or actions calculated to injure the interests of the Monavian state.

§2. Grades of Immunity: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has established three grades of diplomatic immunity (full, partial, and limited). Ambassadors of all ranks, envoys, chargés d’affaires en pied, and consuls shall enjoy full immunity.

B. Partial immunity shall consist of freedom from detention apart from traffic stops, freedom from arrest, freedom from search of person and property, and freedom from compulsion to testify in court.
C. Limited immunity shall consist of freedom from detention apart from traffic stops, freedom from arrest, and freedom from search of person and property.

§3. Restrictions on Prohibited Persons: All persons who meet any of the criteria listed in this section shall be automatically declared personae non gratiae and deported no less than five days after exhausting all permitted appeals or choosing not to pursue appeals further.

A. Any foreign national who is convicted of a felony by a Monavian court.
B. Any foreign national who is deemed to represent a security threat to the Monavian Empire or its territories.
C. Any foreign national who is found to have been previously convicted of felonies in his or her home country and has not been pardoned (political crimes excepted).

§4. Traffic Laws: All diplomatic, support, and security personnel and their vehicles shall be subject to Monavian traffic laws. Pursuant to current Ministry of Transportation regulations, no local jurisdiction shall renew the registration of any diplomatic vehicle for which traffic violation fines remain unpaid. All jurisdictions that issue driving licenses can suspend or revoke the licensure of any person convicted of repeatedly violating traffic laws.

Addendum I
Immigration, Travel, and Customs Restrictions


All foreign nationals entering Monavian territory shall be subject to classification using the following series of status categories.

Violet status: Travelers need only a valid passport or visa and a secondary form of identification to enter or leave Monavian territorial borders. A passport or visa is valid if it contains a clear photograph of the individual possessing the document, an official seal by the issuing authority, and the individual's signature. A metal detector search is usually conducted at points of entry.

Blue status: In addition to the above restrictions, individuals will be subject to X-ray searches of their baggage.

Green status: In addition to the above restrictions, individuals who are found to arouse suspicions may be subject to pat-down searches of their persons at the discretion of local security officers. Those found to be possessing suspicious, but otherwise legal articles on their person or in their luggage may be subject to a brief period of questioning by security officers.

Yellow status: Individuals are subject to the same security requirements as green status individuals and shall not be permitted to stay in Monavian territory for more than thirty days without a signed letter of permission from their embassy. Should they be in violation of the above or any security procedures, they may be detained pending a formal questioning.

Orange status: Individuals in this category are subject to the same security requirements as yellow status individuals and are not permitted to remain in Monavian territory for more than ten days. Violators of the above restrictions or any security procedures may be detained pending a formal questioning. They may also be restricted to their embassy.

Red status: Individuals in this category are considered personae non gratiae and are therefore not permitted on Monavian soil. If caught, violators will be detained immediately for questioning and are typically subject to deportation pending administrative judicial proceedings.

Black status: Black status individuals are persons who have been classified as fugitives entering Monavia to escape justice; prisoners being brought into Monavia to face trial; individuals wanted by the FUCC, FUPF, RBG, MNIA, FBCR, or any other domestic law enforcement agency; hostile foreign aliens; and hostile foreign intelligence operatives. These people are subject to immediate arrest and detention followed by appropriate legal action, prosecution, judicial proceedings, extradition, imprisonment, or expulsion as dictated by the particulars of each situation involving such individuals.

November 16, AD 2015
0830 hours (MIST)


Office of the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs
Fifth floor, Ministry of Foreign Affairs Building
Chalcedon, Monavia


The Right Honorable Augustus Borozan was running late for work. A snowstorm blew its way through Chalcedon the previous evening and deposited four inches of frigid precipitation across the breadth of the city by the times it departed thirteen hours later. The pallid sun that rose soon thereafter wasted no time in thawing out the compressed heaps that the snowplows formed as they raced to clear the city’s spacious, ramrod-straight boulevards in time for the morning commute, but the suburb where Borozan lived was far from the scene of this action and did not get cleared until shortly before seven-thirty. As a result, Borozan had to push his sedan slightly above the government district’s speed limit and climb the stairs outside his office two at a time in order to reach his suite soon enough to welcome in the pack of couriers who promptly brought in his mail at eight o’clock every morning.

Borozan was fortunate that the delivery staff happened to be unusually busy that morning and did not arrive for several extra minutes. This breathing room provided him with extra time to boot up his computer and roll the lint off his navy blue suit before settling in and asking his day secretary to fetch him a cup of tea from a kitchenette down the hall. Moments later, a tall, fairly-complexioned redhead who appeared to be inching into her early thirties approached the fancifully carved ebony doors to Borozan’s office and rapped on them twice before stepping inside with a bundle of envelopes under her arm. “I see I have your first batch of mail thing morning,” she observed. “Nobody else got here ahead of me.”

“Yes, it appears you have,” Borozan smiled as he accepted the stack. “How’s the Minister?”

“He must have just come in since his ears were still pink from the cold when I gave him his mail a minute ago.”

I suppose I’m not the only one who had a slow start today, Borozan inwardly smirked. “I’ll see him myself later. From what I understand he’s off to the Royal Residence later this morning to deliver the Crown’s weekly briefing about our country’s strategic position.”

“More driving?” the courier sighed. “That must be a lot of fun.”

“Well, that’s the responsibility that comes with the position.”

The courier nodded. “All right, I’ll leave you to answer your letters while I head off to the Chairman’s office.”

Borozan smiled as the courier departed and reached into his desk to withdraw a letter opened engraved with his monogram on both sides of the handle. He made short work of the first several letters and drafted responses to each of them, but paused upon reaching one from Greater Themis to look over it before extracting its contents and typing out a reply on his official stationery and faxing it back to Goldsmitt’s office.

Postby Greater Themis » Mon Nov 16, 2015 10:28 am

Chalcedon was cold at this time of year, snow settling on the winter jackets of three figures as they walked across to the address they had received. As the airport taxi drove off, wheels spinning in the dirty black slush of snow and smog that had settled on the roadside, the lead checked an address on a telephone, clasped in a thickly padded mitten. In front of him, the dark form of 104 Chancery Avenue sat in front of him, only the glow of emergency lighting visible behind heavy curtains. The limestone facade of the building had not weathered well during its vacancy, though the flag pole protruding from the darkness over the street was a welcome addition to the otherwise barren front.

The key that Mr Erik Chrysalantos, the newly appointed Chargé d'affaires for the Themisi diplomatic mission, had just picked up a few minutes before, shuddered as it ground deep through the lock. Whilst the building had been kept in a decent state for the ambassadorial mission in abstenia, it appeared the grand front entrance had not seen any use for some time, no footprints visible in the crisp white snow. The door slowly opened, heavy and moving against a pile of undelivered post, circulars and advertisments, that were soon swept to one side. The lights slowly flickered on, as the diplomat looked around the entrance hall. This was an old house, for a rich family, that had been converted into an embassy. Whilst the modifications seemed tasteful, a dead potted plants sited aesthetically around the room, it was apparent that the building had not been used for some time.

"So, we have a reception room here, and the trade entrance downstairs we can use as the reception for the consular department."
The Chargé walked quickly down carpeted corridors, looking into the grand rooms that took up the first floor of the building, marks on the carpets betraying where furnishings had once stood.
"The Envoy will be taking the rearmost office, the one overlooking the garden, from what I recall his wishes were. If I take the office across from here, and share with the Consul, that will leave plenty of space for yourselves and the other staff upstairs."
The stairs were grand and gently sloping, up to a large office area on the first floor. Above, he knew were the apartments for the diplomatic staff and their family, whilst the basement held both the plant rooms and further office space for all. Hardly ideal, but then again the mission had not the funding for long term hotel rooms, or any other sorts of luxuries that a greater mission would demand. Erik shivered, the cold creeping from the walls of the building, as he looked around. Over the next few hours, it seemed the first priority would be getting some furniture in the place.

Embassy Exchange Program

The Unitary Technocracy of Etoile Arcture invites foreign nations to establish high commissions and full embassies for the purposes of formalising diplomatic relations, strengthening existing ties or to provide consular services to their citizens visiting Etoile Acture and Visa services for Etoilian citizens visiting foreign nations. All embassies and ambassadorial residencies are considered sovereign national territory.

Diplomatic Parc, Lake Concordia, New Corinth

Aerial view of the Diplomatic Parc in Concordia


Description

Completed in 2005, the Diplomatic Parc is part of the larger Lake Concordia Island Complex, a large development located within the heart of New Corinth, capital city of Etoile Arcture. The complex has already been home to the numerous Directorate-Generals (or government departments) of the Unitary Technocracy for the past 30 years. Security has been a paramount consideration and the siting on a island limits access to several defendable bridges, while below the lake are located hardened bunkers and a underground railway for rapid evacuations in event of an emergency. Movement throughout the island is by means of an automated electric light railway, while road and rail communication links exist to New Corinth, and a direct air service (by passenger tiltrotor) operates between the island and New Corinth International Airport.

All embassies are assigned their own block, a 50,000 square metre plot, as grounds to locate a chancery building, ambassadorial residence and additional strutures. Up to one thousand blocks are available in total within the Diplomatic Parc, of which over half have already been built. The typical embassy building consists of two basement levels including a underground car park, four main floors and a recessed top storey. Buildings may be configured with their own atrium or water feature and may contain courtyards and gardens. Diplomatic staff are entirely free to alternatively rent or purchase properties in New Corinth, and are otherwise encouraged to sample the rich cultural life the city has to offer.

Restrictions

All embassies and ambassadorial residences are considered by the government of Etoile Arcture to be the sovereign foreign territory of that nation. But foreign diplomatic personnel are not exempt from local laws when outside their own sovereign territory.

Security personnel assigned to diplomatic missions must apply and receive special carry permits for personal defence weapons. Only small arms limited to tazers, hand guns, submachine guns, assault rifles and shotguns are licensed for legitimate self-protection. Heavier armament such as crew served weapons are not permitted to be brought on to Etoilian territory. Violations of these rules and of local laws may lead to expulsion.

Diplomatic missions are free to bring their own transport, restricted to limousines, sedans and SUVs. Embassies are expected to contain at the bare minimum: a Ambassador’s Office, Consular Section, Visa Section, Trade Mission, Political Officer, Public Affairs Department, and Management Section including staff.

Applications

Any nation may apply to establish formal diplomatic relations with Etoile Arcture regardless of their prior relations with the Technocracy.

It is further requested that the public servants of the Dominion be referred to using the pronoun 'it' in all relevant speech and documentation; Dominion officials are extensions of the will and body of the Dominion, and they therefore do not have genders any more than one's toe or hand might.

It is the hope of the Dominion that this information aids the Monavian Empire in all communication and relations with the Dominion of Liagolas. We hope that the establishment of an embassy may lead to a peaceful and mutually beneficial relationship between the Dominion and your Empire.

Borozan elected to take a few days of personal leave in order to celebrate New Year’s Day with his family and planned to resume his normal duties on the morning of January 4. He briefly stopped at his office on January 2 to sort his correspondence into two piles—one for items that could wait until the fourth, and one for items that were more urgent. Most of the letters he received went into the first pile, but the trio of applications he found went into the second one. After taking a few minutes to look over each of the documents, Borozan faxed copies of the documents to the Royal Residence and made a short telephone call to set up an appointment so that he could request the Imperial Crown’s blessing to form some additional diplomatic missions and deploy them abroad.

The deputy minister replied to the Ordernite application first. Borozan had come to entertain reservations regarding the Ordernite Reich’s intentions and foreign interests over the past few months, undoubtedly a result of his frequent discussions with Minister Carter. This fact, if nothing else, led him to feel that the presence of Ordernite diplomats could facilitate the resolution of any disputes that might arise if their government ever found itself at cross purposes with the Imperial Federation.

Minister:

I am very pleased to inform you that my office has reviewed and approved the facility application which your office submitted on December 31, 2015. I have ordered my staff to allot the property located at 127 Chancery Avenue for your honorable government’s use and I hope that the Ordernite delegation will find its condition satisfactory upon arriving there. If you, Ambassador Wegner, or any of his subordinates feel a need to make inquiries regarding these arrangements, then my office will freely entertain and answer whichever questions are directed to it.

I have informed the Imperial Crown of your delegation’s pending arrival and have secured Their Imperial Majesties’ blessing to organize and send a Monavian delegation to Berlina. Should your honorable government be pleased with this offer of reciprocity, you can expect my office to prepare and submit a completed diplomatic exchange application in the near future. In the meantime, I offer you and the Ordernite government at large my sincerest wishes for a peaceful and prosperous future.

Sincerely,

Augustus Borozan, Ph.D., LL.M.
Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs


The second letter took a little longer to write since Borozan had to do a bit of research to find out where the Fifthlandians liked to house foreign embassies. The letter also took longer to send since the deputy minister’s printer suddenly developed a jam that took forever to clear, but eventually his secretary was able to produce a pristine copy and fax it out to Ya Jing.

Shortly before leaving for lunch, Borozan telephoned one of his subordinates to find an available maintenance crew that could inspect the building which the Mouth of the Dominion of Liagolas had requested. Borozan had never entered any of the building himself and consequently had no idea how they were finished and furnished, but the expedition he had set in motion soon revealed that the Dominion’s delegates had little about which to worry. The deputy minister was also intrigued by the unique conventions of address which the Dominion’s public officials considered proper. Mystified as he was by the Dominion’s customs, he nevertheless decided to honor them as a gesture of good faith and made a point of saying so in his reply.

Your Excellency:

I am very pleased to inform you that my office has reviewed and approved the facility application which your office submitted on January 2, 2016. I have ordered my staff to allot the property located at 110 Chancery Avenue for your honorable government’s use and have dispatched a maintenance crew to perform an inspection thereof. There is little that can be done about the reflectivity of the exterior windows; however, the existing buildings occupying the diplomatic precinct generally contain a minimal number of interior furnishings and fixtures so that incoming delegations can furnish them in accordance with their wishes. Your delegates are free to hire contractors of their choosing to remodel the premises if they are not entirely suitable.

In addition to evaluating your government’s application, my office has also taken some time to consider your preferences regarding the forms of address to be used in official correspondence with those who speak for the Dominion. As a result of these deliberations, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs hereby agrees to honor said preferences out of an abundance of respect for the Dominion’s wishes. If you or any member of the Dominion’s delegation feels a need to make inquiries regarding these arrangements, then my office will freely entertain and answer whichever questions are directed to it.

I have informed the Imperial Crown of your delegation’s pending arrival and have secured Their Imperial Majesties’ blessing to organize and send a Monavian delegation to an appropriate location within the Dominion. Should your honorable government be pleased with this offer of reciprocity, you can expect my office to prepare and submit a completed diplomatic exchange application in the near future. In the meantime, I offer you and the Dominion at large my sincerest wishes for a peaceful and prosperous future.

OFFICIAL MISSIVE TO THE
OFFICE OF THE DEPUTY MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS OF THE
IMPERIAL FEDERATION OF THE MONAVIAN EMPIRE FROM THE
BRANCH OF THE DOMINION FOR EXTERNAL AFFAIRS OF THE
DOMINION OF LIAGOLAS



It is the pleasure of the Dominion to know that its application was accepted and that a property was allotted for the embassy of the Dominion. The reflective nature of the exterior windows is remedied easily enough with curtains, though it is unfortunate that they may be closed perpetually by necessity, and the absence of other reflective surfaces is gratifying.

It is the regret of the Dominion that it cannot accept the Monavian delegation at this time. As the Branch of the Dominion for External Affairs is still relatively young, the Dominion is not yet prepared to host embassies on its own soil. It is the hope of the Dominion that the Imperial Federation of the Monavian Empire understands this, and it is the will of the Dominion to remedy the matter in the future. At present, however, the Dominion cannot host a Monavian delegation.

The Dominion will begin preparations for its Mouth and Hands to depart for the Monavian Empire. It is the hope of this Dominion that its embassy in the Monavian Empire be the beginning of an enlightening relationship, and may both nations enjoy peace and efficiency.

Although Minister Borozan had quite a few items sitting in his inbox, only two of them were letters concerning the operation of the diplomatic exchange program. The deputy minister skimmed the YellowApplan application and then set it aside to look over the correspondence he had received from the Dominion of Liagolas to determine which one he wanted to answer first. He elected to address the latter immediately since a response to the former required a bit of research to find out where YellowApple’s government liked to house foreign embassies. Borozan spent the next half hour drafting his first letter on plain copy paper (which he later shredded) and then wrote out a finalized draft on his official stationery.

Your Excellency:

My office has contacted the Ministry of Transportation to request the reservation of a private gate at the government terminal of Chalcedon International Airport so that the arrival of the Dominion’s delegation can proceed unimpeded by any hindrance or interference that could potentially arise, however unlikely. In addition, my office has also requested that temporary hangar space be provided for the Dominion’s aircraft and motor vehicles and that an official be appointed to arrange accommodations which the delegation may wish to request upon arriving.

My office also wishes to apologize for any miscommunication that might have arisen concerning the eventual formation of a delegation to represent the Imperial Federation before the Dominion. No such delegation has been formed yet and said formation remains contingent on the Dominion’s ability to host visitors, a point on which my previous letter may have been inadvertently vague. Since the Branch of the Dominion for External Affairs is presently unprepared to accept such gestures of reciprocity, the Monavian government will wait for a statement of the Dominion’s readiness in this regard before dispatching any officials.

Sincerely,

Augustus Borozan, Ph.D., LL.M.
Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs


Having completed the drafting of his reply to the Mouth of the Dominion, Borozan moved onto addressing the YellowApplan application and reviewing the security concerns that it mentioned.

The Monavian diplomatic exchange program underwent a modest spike in activity during the first month of 2016, but once the initial rush was over the entire program entered an unexpected spell of dormancy that dragged on for over three months. Had it not been for Minister Carter’s occasional absences and the sporadic opportunities they posed for Carter’s deputy Augustus Borozan to take the Ministry’s reins, the man would have opted to take some personal leave to alleviate his boredom. On the twentieth of April, however, Borozan’s counterparts in Lockbourne had other ideas and sent him an application.

Department of Foreign Affairs - Free Confederated Republic of Aurensia

Addressed To: The Monavian Empire || Addressed From: Federal Department of Foreign Affairs || Subject Matter: Diplomatic Exchange Program || Encryption: Open Communiqué


Addressed to the Monavian state, in the interests of peace and friendship

It is with pleasure that I write you this missive and enclose our application, with the full and honorable intention to establish formal diplomatic relations with the Imperil Federation of the Monavian Empire. It is our belief, that the world requires open and honest trade and an inculcation of the virtues and values of friendship in order to perpetuate peace.

In recent months the Aurensian Office of Consulates and Embassies, under the direction of Federal Councilor Frederick B. Delanore has enacted a generalized policy of increasing the tendency to form links and bonds of communication throughout the world.

As the Administrator for the Department, I have taken personal interest in establishing these aforesaid bonds with states that appear willing and ready to encourage human flourishing and freedom throughout our planet. I also believe that with a civilization as old and respectable as the Monavian Empire we may soon find ourselves learning from each other, despite the differences of sociopolitics and economic views. It is through dialogue that I believe the Aurensian Government may better encourage these tendencies of human liberty and it is through compassion and understanding in the international realms of diplomacy and peacebuilding that we will see these things expand.

I would also like to extend our interest in your inclusion in our own diplomatic exchange program if you should desire.

To the Ministry of Foreign Affairs,

In line with New Hayesalian Government policy it is my pleasure to announce our interest in establishing a New Hayesalian embassy in Monavia.
We intend to use Monavia's regional strength to establish representation both in Monavia and as a plenipotentiary diplomatic post to reach out to
other nations within Monavia's sphere of influence. This will, of course, require a large number of Embassy staff members though our long history
of good diplomatic relations with upwards of 100 national embassies should serve in good stead as representation of a respectful diplomatic corps.

We are however slightly concerned with the wording of Article V and request that New Hayesalian diplomats are held to the internationally standard
levels of immunity, particularly as noted in our own diplomatic program seen in our signature.

We also request an exemption to increase the size of our diplomatic investment in Monavia, due to the very large populations of our two nations and
our desire to provide consular services to a variety of nations and cities around the region, based from Chalcedon.

We eagerly await your response.

OOC:

Please forgive my languid pace in composing this post. I have been a bit tied up by RL obligations lately and I ended up burning most of my NS time on telegram exchanges and Mentor-related activities over the past few days. I also made a few minor edits to my code of facility regulations, but none of these changes apply to your applications. I owe New Hayesalia special thanks for catching a number of omissions I had somehow made while writing the code of regulations (which I will amend again in the near future).




IC:

January 23, AD 2017
0837 hours local time


Office of the Right Honorable Augustus Borozan
Fifth floor, Ministry of Foreign Affairs Building
Chalcedon, Capital District
Imperial Federation of the Monavian Empire
Nova


Deputy Minister Borozan was absent from his office when a courier bearing his mail passed by to deliver them, so his day secretary accepted the sealed packet (along with a stack of other items) and waited for him to arrive. The functionary who received the Emerstarian application documents was Jacob Romanski, a genial man in his late thirties who began his career with the Ministry as Borozan’s administrative aide and rode his coattails up the hierarchy for the better part of the last decade. Romanski always arrived very early to set his desk in order and sort Borozan’s mail in order of importance before opening each envelope halfway to make it easier for his superior to get inside them later.

Twenty-nine minutes after Romanski had completed his initial tasks of the morning, Borozan appeared in the doorway of his office suite with heavy scarf wrapped around his neck and a briefcase-laden aide at his side. “Good morning, Minister.”

“Good morning! Good morning!” Borozan ebulliently responded. “You have any exciting news today?”

“Just the mail,” Romanski smiled, gesturing towards a stack of half-opened envelopes on the corner of his desk. “You’ve got a few interesting ones here, including one from the Republic of Emerstari.”

“Emerstari? Never heard much of them lately.”

“They don’t have much influence in our part of the world—not much I know of, anyway,” the aide spoke up.

“You never know,” Romanski countered. “Perhaps they just haven’t pursued any interests in our region until now. Hopefully, we can find out what they want.”

Borozan nodded and unlocked his office so his aide could drop off his briefcase and run back out to assist Romanski. “I’ll take a look,” he stated plainly as the aide scurried out to bring the mail inside. “It’s probably a diplomatic missive, if I had to guess.”

One hour later, Borozan summoned Romanski inside. “Jacob, I need you to fax this off in the next few minutes.”

Romanski peeked down at the typed page Borozan handed to him. “Do you think we’ll receive another one soon?” he speculated.

“We ought to. It would do our country a lot of good for these to keep coming in.”

“Well,” Romanski breathed, “let’s hope they do.”

I have informed the Imperial Crown of your delegation’s pending arrival and your honorable government’s desire for reciprocity in the matter of dispatching embassies abroad.

A loud click emanated from the secure fax machine outside Borozan’s office, prompting Romansky to spin his creaky swivel chair around and watch as the printing apparatus inside whirred to life and ejected two sheets. “Excuse me, Minister,” the secretary called out, “A secure fax just arrived from…New Hayesalia.”

“Bring it in.”

“One moment please,” Romanski spoke up as he collected the papers and stepped into his superior’s office. “It looks like an official letter from their foreign minister,” he surmised, having previously noted the header.

The deputy minister’s brows furrowed as he scanned the document in front of him. “It’s not just a letter,” he concluded after a few moments of reading, “it’s a…diplomatic facility application.” After reading on a little further, he stopped and looked up from his desk with a quizzical expression on his face. “What on Earth happened here?” he asked as he handed the papers back to Romanski.

“It looks like they tried to copy our form off the Web and paste it into whatever program they used to type this thing.”

“Whatever,” Borozan sighed. “They furnished us with all the information we need to process their request, so we may as well be polite about it and give them an answer.”

“All right. Tell me when you’re ready for me to fax it off.”

New Hayesalia

January 29, 2017

Minister Belthas:

I am very pleased to inform you that my office has reviewed and approved the facility application which your office submitted on January 29, 2017. I have ordered my staff to allot the property located at 103 Chancery Avenue for your honorable government’s use and I hope that the New Hayesalian delegation will find its condition satisfactory upon arriving there. If you, Ambassador Rellan, or any of his subordinates feel a need to make inquiries regarding these arrangements, then my office will freely entertain and answer whichever questions are directed to it.

In addition to evaluating your government’s application, my office has evaluated the operational and immunity concerns that you expressed in your letter. As a gesture of goodwill and friendship, I hereby waive the personnel restrictions imposed on diplomatic and support staff by Art. III, §1 (A) of the Code of Diplomatic Facility Regulations and the personnel restrictions imposed on security by Art. IV, §1 (A) of that same code. The Code does not contain any provisions restricting diplomatic families. Furthermore, your office is perfectly welcome to submit consulate applications for any locations where it wishes to station its considerable consular staff delegation. There is no limit on how many consulates your country may operate.

While my office has been able to rapidly devise resolutions for your logistical concerns, I fear your concerns about Monavian diplomatic immunity regulations will prove trickier for me to untangle. My country is not presently a signatory to any global treaties on diplomatic immunity, though I highly doubt that my government has any reservations against negotiating a bilateral treaty framework addressing this matter. The statutes which define the Ministry’s regulatory powers currently require the Ministry to offer full immunity to all diplomatic staff (including consular and support staff) and allow the Ministry to extend it to others at its discretion. While this policy only applies to official actions (violent crimes being excepted), it arguably exceeds most international diplomatic immunity standards since most foreign governments do not extend eligibility for immunity this broadly.

Upon reviewing the Code in additional detail, my office has concluded that some of your concerns possibly stem from the fact that it does not mention searches and seizures or compulsion of testimony by courts, among other technical details. It appears that the Diplomatic Exchange Program’s legal office somehow failed to notice that Article V contained omissions of this nature, so I will inquire about what can be done to rectify this situation. In all likelihood, Minister Carter will probably order the Ministry’s chief legal officer to amend this section of the Code once I bring this matter to his attention.

I have informed the Imperial Crown of your delegation’s pending arrival and have secured Their Imperial Majesties’ blessing to organize and send a Monavian delegation to Revnami. Should your honorable government be pleased with this offer of reciprocity, you can expect my office to prepare and submit a completed diplomatic exchange application in the near future. In the meantime, I offer you and the New Hayesalian government at large my sincerest wishes for a peaceful and prosperous future.
