Attention all NSers, The Metropole is in great danger, and it needs YOUR help to wipe out the Arabian Empire. To do this, it needs an army and a couple of Skybases. To help it, all it needs is your credit card number, the three numbers on the back, and the expiration month and date. But you have to be quick so that Frievolk can win the war, and achieve the Everlasting Victory!

Your Question is being answered by
King-Emperor Johann I

Image


His Royal and Imperial Majesty Johann the West-Star, King-Emperor of Frievolk wrote:To answer your question, there was a time that the royal house of Berun did come close to such a thing happening.
Otto the second, generally called "Otto the Tyrant" even by our own historians, was the Emperor of Frievolk during 1870-1876.
The beginning of his reign coincided with the final strokes to the great German Chancellor Bismarck's plan in Unifying Germany. Fearing that this could enforce Frievolk, an ethnically German country, into a supposed German Empire, Otto began a process of eliminating the main threat to his sovereignty, the Oberklasse -which is what you would call the Bourgeoisie, I suppose- that were mainly supportive of union under Prussia. Otto eliminated the Oberklasse, but power -something his late parent King-Emperor Arnold left him with- corrupted him and he began a series of reforms in the country, centralizing the trade power by eliminating the Burgher class, and then attempting to dissolve the Imperial Diet.
Frievolk did not accept that, and a revolution began, during which the Imperial Federation of Frievolk lost every colony it owned to other powers. The constitutionalists ended victorious, but were convinced to keep the monarchy after the house of Berun accepted to give the Reiksdiät all power taken, go back against the recent reforms, and deliver the now disgraced citizen Otto Bruan to be executed for his crimes.
The Kingdom and Empire has not come close to any revolution ever since.
I hope that this has answered your question.

His Royal and Imperial Majesty Johann the West-Star, King-Emperor of Frievolk wrote:That is a very good question.
We have had a long history with foxes as well. From the tenth century to the fifteenth -when we finally got our independence-, Frievolk was effectively ruled directly from Bourgogne, the capital of the Kingdom of Burgundy. Due to various reasons, the Frenchmen in power there -no matter how much they dislike being called one, we've never called them anything else- would not allow the Frievolker Lion to roar and to make its dominance known. Indeed, it was the swift, wily fox who had what it took to bring us our freedom. Indeed, there was no grandoise war of independence (like the one our northern Neighbors had when they got it into them that they could become independent as well), but sneaky claims, assassinations, and throwing Europe in confusion.
We threw Burgundy at the dogs fighting in Iberia, and by the time the confusion of the war in their southern borders had died off, we had our independence and a big enough army to support us, which was when the Lion became important.

The reason the Fox is our national animal is the same reason the Fox is on our flag. Frievolkers thrive not in direct war and shows of dominance but in politicking, playing our cards right, and striking only when necessary.
That, and because King Franz (the Founder of the Kingdom of Frievolk) loved foxes, but let us not dwell on that.

Your Question is being answered by
Imperial Chancellor Otto van Harlow

Image


His Excellency Otto van Harlow, Imperial Chancellor of Frievolk and Duke of Luxembourg wrote:The short answer would be Aggressive Diplomacy and Warfare.

The long answer, of course, is that I found weak spots in the Imperial Federation of Britain and took it. Hansfund -or, as you would call it, Canada- was originally our colony, overtaking the general vicinity of the modern provinces of Hansstaat (Newfoundland and Labrador), Neu Käsigberg (Nova Scatia and New Brunswick) and Grossnord (Nunavot), before it was taken from us by the French as part of their war against the First Kingdom. They were, once again, part of our Empire in the 1800s, and they only left our Empire and joined Britain when Emperor Otto proved too tyrannical. Sentiments to join us have always been high in Hansfund. We just used it, and made sure Britain would keep civil to their decision to leave the Federation.

The Persian Isles, again, were 'taken' during the confusion of the second Iranian Revolution. I doubt the new administration, given their close ties to us, would ever consider trying to take them back.

The 'Frievolker Karibb', as you said -which is three or four Island Archipelagos in the Caribbeans-, was always part of our territory, we just managed to convince the Libertalian pirates to stop raiding it long enough to make a peace treaty.

And South Africa and Kuwait were annexed in the peace conference after the Persian-Arabian war, a war which we poured 700,000 of our brave soldiers into.

I hope that answered your question, though I must admit I realize how... aggressive this method of reannexation can be, and that we will not employ more of the same hereon after.

Klein von Valtenz, Secretary of Infrastructure wrote:Indeed. The Dutch Empire and the Frievolker Empire employ the same methods to manage our possessions in the Low Countries. The cooperation when flood comes (often called 'Flutzeit Mitarbeit' in Frievolker) is one of the few times that we can actually stand the Dutch, and that's mostly because of the necessity of it.

Your Question is being answered by
Imperial Secretary of State, Maria von Löwensberg

Maria von Löwensberg, Imperial Secretary of State wrote:That, in all seriousness, depends on what you define as "Famous works". If you are looking for famous pieces of literature from Frievolk and its territories, I'd say we have had some relatively decent cartoonists, political scientists, historians, and poets in the modern age. I'd say Hergé and his studio did a few good sketches, though personally I believe they only started improving once the man himself was booted. On a more serious note, political treatises and articles such as Josef von Schtlussdorf's On African decolonization (the topic of which, I'm sure you can deduce), Elder Weissmann's Seigskatalog van Krig (The Victor's Catalogue of War) which, I remember, shook most of Europe for its anti-war sentiment during the early years after The fall of the French Commune, and the good old Ode of the coming winter, one of the most famous set of poems in Northwestern Europe in the recent century.

Of course, if you were talking about older famous works, that is slightly more complicated. There is The International Correspondence of Labourers, better known as De Korrespondenz, is a work of both history and literature -though I suspect the latter was achieved unwittingly- regarding the state of Europe following Marx and Engels'... peculiar ideology that I feel you may enjoy more, Almost all of Van der Mark's works (I'd personally suggest Fox and the Lion), and Herman de Unterkonig and his accurate depiction of the Court of King Denis, from the day he became King of Berun to the day he became the Holy Roman Emperor, which can be found in Mein Besuch des Königshofes (My visit of the King's Court). There's more literature than that, of course, since I have only went as far back as the sixteenth century, but these are some of my personal favorites.

In the last three years, particularly since Frievolk annexed Hansfund, we began a process of slowly cutting down our use of oil. This was, primarily, as an economic method to harm the Arabian states of the Middle East due political and ethical differences. We instead employed solar and wind powers, employing the first in Frievolk itself and the second in Hansfund's non-urban swathes of land. As you can expect, this did not go well, and only up to 10 percent of the nation's power could be provided by Solar and Wind power put together. Our saving grace was the nuclear plant, which has done the most in reducing fossil fuel's use.

Your second question... well, the prowling fox is the symbol of The Kingdom of Frievolk. The double-headed Eagle is the Symbol of the Empire. that and the dominion of the house of Berun over the Empire.

Attention all NSers, The Metropole is in great danger, and it needs YOUR help to wipe out the Arabian Empire. To do this, it needs an army and a couple of Skybases. To help it, all it needs is your credit card number, the three numbers on the back, and the expiration month and date. But you have to be quick so that Frievolk can win the war, and achieve the Everlasting Victory!

To : Whoever may concern
From : President Mark Romagnoli


Dear sir/madam.

I am writing this delegate to ask a question: are there any person who turned out to have shapeshifting capabilities, even in legends? Or do have supernatural abilities?

We ask this question because we want to see how many countries do have people with supernatural abilities.

If yes, are they employed in any military field? What rights do they have? And about rights, are there any minority in Frievolk? If yes, who are the most notable people?

Best regards.

Signed, Mark Romagnoli,
President of the Federal Republic States of New Wolvers.

Jerome Weismann, Imperial Secretary of Foreign Affairs wrote:Dear President Romagnoli,

I must admit that, to our knowledge, there is no evidence of any entities on the planet Earth with magical or supernatural capabilities of any kind. Of course, there are many that claim so, and many that genuinely believe that they do possess some form of supernatural capabilities, but to my knowledge, and that of the majority of The World's scientists, this is nothing but a claim and a belief.

Of the people that do claim to possess supernatural capabilities, the greatest minorities in the Frievolker Empire are, respectively, the pagan and Nativist communities accross the Empire, and a few Zoroastrian Magi in Kuwait and the Persian Isles. These three communities make, approximately, 20.2% of the Frievolker Population, 20% of which would be the Pagan and Nativist communities, which have recently seen a rise in popularity. To my knowledge, their rituals and Blóts have no magical effect that has been recorded.

Outside of Frievolk, the so-called Chairman of the Nordbo Socialist Republic of Folknoren is, sometimes, rumored to possess some forms of supernatural capabilities, though this has never been proven either way. Thule is, almost 99.9%, pagan in belief, though they have not been proven to possess supernatural capabilities either.

In conclusion, I must say that the number of people who claim or believe to possess supernatural abilities -or, rather, the ability of cause supernatural events through rituals or pacts- is way into tens of millions, perhaps more if we consider the number of pagans across Africa -even more if we count in the belief some have over the power of prayer- but the number of those with proven supernatural capabilities is, probably, zero."


OOC: The total number of people with proven supernatural abilities in the Entire Erstwelt is 5. 1 is an Vampire from an alternate universe (the aforementioned Chairman), 3 are Pagan chiefs in Thule, and the last one is a college student in Iran who tries to keep his powers hidden and live his life.[/quote]

"How would you describe political freedom in Frievolk? Do you have any banned political party? Even the freest nations find themselves banning their local fascist or communist party, or the sake of ensuring freedom."

Zitravgrad (Зітравград) is a PMT nation with a convoluted form of state capitalism backed by technocrats. A post-nuclear war tundra wasteland, the nation has the aesthetics of Soviet Union and War and Peace, messed up by steampunk. It has strong energy, mining and pharmaceutical industries but with stagnant agricultural sector. It is expecting an election in December 2018. NSStats not used, but somewhat acceptable.

I would describe Frievolk as mostly politically free. We don't have any banned political parties, though that may be because we never acknowledged the "illegal parties" in question as a party for us to ban them. The ideologies of Paternalism and National Revivalism(//the two main popular forms of fascism in in Erstwelt) have, since 1933, been illegal across the empire, punished quite severely until very recently. Syndicalism, Communalism, Communism, Socialism, and whatever belief it is Communards have, are fairly unpopular, mostly because Frievolkers are culturally individualist and not a fan of collectivist authoritarianism, a trait all of the aforementioned ideologies share, but none of these parties are banned, or politically discriminated against.

Truth is, I have no bloody idea myself :p
