Embassy Program of New Thebes

Image


χαίρετε ἅνθρωποι πρός ἡγεμόνα ῾υπερτιμαόνοι οἰκουμένης! In the very beginning the King of Thebes was nothing more than the right man at the right time, a capable man with flexibility, imagination, and talent available to offer to suppliants and civilians in exchange for the long-lasting esteem of belief. Today Thebes is one of the cities of the world and the King has surpassed mortal boundaries of accountability and mortality, but his appeal to others remains his inventive power to accomplish goals and his acumen for doing so in very great style. And so outside and beyond the numbers of dignitaries and political men who come to Thebes in regularity to seal the bonds of allegiance, his court remains a hotbed of dreamers and aspirants who arrive daring to hope for the magnanimous curiosity of the Great King and the rich rewards of his personal interest. In the vast complexes of luxury suites and apartments, or perchance even in the weighty halls of the Royal Palace itself, these men come to test the imagination of the King of Thebes. For some it is like a way of life, and living year-round in the splendor of the City they pass their days as professional courtiers and veteran socialites, turning the wheels of state with their influence or their dead persistence. Others come through once in a lifetime as spokespeople of their race, the crowning achievement of ambitious kings and presidents or the capstone of intellectual and spiritual fulfillment. Why have you come to Thebes, and what place do you have for yourself in one of the greatest cities on Earth?


Embassy Application

A very satisfied councilor in the court of King Milanion II once said that those who have never sent ambassadors to the City of Thebes are generally inclined already to oppose her. He captured a generality, of course. New emissaries visit the city all the time, to make themselves known and for the good report they can bring home with them; because of interest or design, no small number of dignitaries will happen to stay and become permanent fixtures in the Royal Court, trying at the ear of the King. To dispatch an ambassador to Thebes, you can submit the following template:

The Chamber of Records, in its sub-department assigned to work on behalf of the Department of the Household, maintains a complete and running list of all ambassadors received by the court of the King of Thebes which lists the date of arrival/departure, the visiting party, and a general synopsis of the appearance of the delegation in the Royal Court. In this manner no gift is forgotten, no request goes overlooked, no point of fact is lost to the disputations of posterity, and no person remains undistinguished in history for their appearance in the City of Thebes. This master list mimics the official directory for all previous embassies sent to the City.

Standing Delegations in the Theban Royal Court

Pan-Asiatic States - Boris Alberto Zamora

The number of embassies who maintain themselves on a permanent basis in the City of Thebes is not insignificant. This ensures a continual line of communication to the Royal Court as well as with the powerbroking members of the Great Council. Such permanent embassies are typically housed in reserved compartments of the high-end residential housing surrounding the 'Royal City', or in certain circumstances they may dwell within the Royal Palace itself on account of their especial import. This list details all permanent embassies residing in the City of Thebes and it is kept by the Department of the Household primarily for financial and logistical regions to maintain a high standard of comfort and accommodation.

Treaties Made in Court

Coming Soon

It would not be diplomacy nor business if there were not deals made by embassy in the court of Thebes. Of course, in Thebes power is decentralized and many petty actors are empowered to make deals with others, and many do. Nevertheless, the commitment of the King or of the Great Council is superior to all and represents big meaningful investments from the Theban people. Deals such as these made by foreign ambassadors in the City itself are recorded either by the Royal Chancery or by the Registrar of the Great Council and kept for reference in order to exact compliance from all the members of the Commonwealth.

βουλή ἡγεμόνος θηβῶν
Council of the King of Thebes


Although many will submit varying opinions on the best approach to problem solving in political affairs, they all will have to concede that a problem is most aptly solved when understood, and most completely understood when comprehended from every relevant perspective in respect to possibility. In no little part because of this and to continue the art of diplomacy to its most profitable extent, the King of Thebes and the eminent deputies of the Great Council maintain large and diverse retinues of advisers who, drawn from all over and entrusted personally, enable the Theban government to act based on all the prevailing designs and interests of the world community. In giving the City of Thebes such a cautious advantage these men and women enjoy no small power and prestige themselves, not only having an in to anticipating major developments in world economics and statecraft, but also wielding considerable power for themselves as leading lights in shaping the NationStates world. And this power is never wasted, for with so many magnitudinous names and such chances at glory floating in the court of the Theban king, there is more than a mere passing incentive to play and to maneuver against other foreigners like themselves, making coalitions with some of them and conspiring to bring others to ruin.


Application to be a Courtier in Thebes

Ultimately it is a small proportion of the ambassadors who pass through the city of Thebes that will secure a privileged place for themselves as long-lasting voices in the deliberations of state. But a common characteristic of all such men and women is that they tried and were deliberate about their attempt. The right tactics, character qualities, and circumstances can make a person an esteemed councilor in the backroom discussions of New Thebes.

Index of Prominent Courtiers in Thebes
Coming Soon


There is no official list dedicated to the foreigners with power and influence in the Theban government; for political purposes, however, the Royal Chancellery maintains a running list of prominent persons whose voices are carrying weight in the internal summits of the state. As an informal political tool, the list leaves many details to memory but keeps track of the nationality, provenance, and historical behavior of each courtier. Persons may or may not be forgotten with time depending on how much of a legacy they are capable of leaving when life calls them away from the City of Thebes.

Τᾶ Ὀμοθῆναι Ξένοις τε Θηβαῖος Αλλήλων Γεγραμμένα
International Treaties of Thebes

Image


περί φιλοῖς μή δῆται πίστεως μνημονικοις...for as words call forth the shape of time, the form of concord and the mold of civilization, they make an establishment that cannot be overturned - why should it be a burden to stand fast with one's words, ἀλλά make them roads to your country and make them walls to immortalize it. Treaties create, they add a spirit into the world, the daimon of two nations sharing a product together, something that increases them and makes them more, diverse, increased in the world. Any time a business is sealed between foreign nations and Thebes it is like a collision of worlds - markets meet, people meet, legends meet, the intentions of the divine gods clash. It is not so bad to be different, no it means strength - what will compare to what we have not seen before? Then won't it stand to reason that there is no accounting the increase of strength that comes from the knowledge of something new. μέν put it into words, build a foundation in the currency of truth on behalf of your dreams, and let the unity of friendship make a road for your nation.


Treaty Proposals

The first precursor to a treaty with the Theban people is a mutual interest in profit between an aspiring fellow power and themselves. Once this has been secured, a concrete proposal is necessary. Although many treaties begin in more nebulous forms as half-baked ideas and casual conversation between influencers both formal and informal, at some point they all will cross a threshold into public life, and that threshold is here. This document represents a treaty formally presented to the King of Thebes for his approval or his rejection. Most of them will have been drafted partially through his own deputies assigned to negotiate, with varying degrees of foreknowledge; some will have secret backstories contained in backroom intrigue or careful forethought.

Treaties in Force in Thebes
Coming Soon


Nobody possesses the law; it is an independent and impartial force, and in Thebes it's sacrosanctness is protected in regards to foreign treaties through the supreme political prerogative of the Great Council and the Theban royal house. The Royal Chancellery and the Records Office of the Great Council both maintain permanent lists of treaties made between Thebes and its foreign partners with the intention of maximizing good faith and clarity.
