Embassy of The Ice States





Welcome to the official embassy of The Empire of The Ice States. Here you can apply for an embassy, or peruse the Empire's diplomatic relationships and embassies.

The Ice States is a monarchic theocratic empire located in Greater Dienstad, ruled with a fair hand by Emperor Sotolo II and the divine Klyprer, through the Divine Scribe Theodore Lowney. We seek to expand our foreign relationships, and we are happy to accept embassies with like-minded nations, so long as they follow our embassy regulations. All ambassadors receive diplomatic immunity, and therefore will not be penalised by the Empire for illegal acts, but will be deported and the embassy may, at the discretion of the Duke of Magecastle, be terminated. We also reserve the right to terminate or deny an embassy for any hostile activity against the Ice States. Anyone who is sent as a diplomat to the Ice States and currently under arrest warrant or otherwise wanted for acts committed prior to becoming a diplomat to The Ice States will not be protected under diplomatic immunity.

Image
Embassies will be allotted in the Diplomatic Complex of the nation's centre of diplomacy, Magecastle, with a full list of available and used areas listed here. Each embassy may utilise one building, and may store any items, excluding prohibited goods. Each embassy may have up to sixty diplomatic staff.

Prohibited goods are the following _

  1. Certain drugs which may, in addition to recreational use, have a medical use, or equipment specifically for use thereof
  2. Weapons of mass destruction,
  3. Any material that may contain propaganda against the Ice States as well as prohibited books,
  4. Any sort of non-canned food, and
  5. Alive or dead animals.

Image
The Ice States is home to a large military of 1,711,166 personnel, led by General Burkes, which we are willing to deploy on behalf of our allies if in need. We take diplomatic security seriously, and will gladly deploy divitions of the Ice Military to help ensure security of foreign embassies upon request. We also permit nations to deploy security forces, such as law enforcement or military, at their embassy, but security deployments may not have more than 50 total security personnel, or 30 should an Ice division already be stationed at that embassy.

For any inquiries, you should contact the Duke of Magecastle, Jeramy Vliet, who is available for contact here for classified communication, or in this thread.

However, you may reapply for an embassy should you revive.

We inform you that The Empire of The Ice States has accepted an embassy with The Golden Throne! Our construction personnel are working to prepare the site at B2 for the embassy staff to settle in, and will be ready later today. We hope that this marks the start of a new era of properous relations between our two nations.

However, you have indicated that you will have 400 diplomatic staff -- we have a cap of 60 diplomatic personnel, so your deployed diplomatic staff will have to be massively downsized. We will still prepare the site for 60 personnel, but we expect the staff to meet the cap when the mission moves in.

To whom it may concern _

We have reviewed your application, and it meets the embassy criteria, but we would like clarification before an embassy is accepted. Your constitution prohibits our predominant ideology, you maintain no military, and various vices are allowed and performed. We thus seek to know -- what common ground does your nation have or seek with The Ice States?

This is not a denial, nor an acceptance, and we would like a response to proceed.

Tena Koe, Honourable Duke Jeramy Vliet,

It is my great pleasure to correspond with you directly.

Common ground is seldom the reason for nations to establish diplomatic relations. Rather, diplomacy tends to be an acknowledgement of a lack of common ground and a willingness to use communication to bridge such gaps.

The constitution of Tangatarehua binds our Empire and no other nation and therefore it cannot be accurately stated that we prohibit another nation's ideology. You may if you wish condemn us for what your culture perceives as a vice and we could in turn choose to condemn you for the morally incorrect practice of slavery.

However please note we have very specifically chosen not to condemn you but to instead reach out to you and attempt to understand you.

I am confident that it would be more strategically beneficial to your nation to maintain diplomatic ties to a neutral nation that controls a large exclusive economic zone in southeastern Greater Dienstad than it would to push us into the arms of those who seek to isolate and condemn you.

Our common ground is geographic and the Imperial Government seeks sincerely to understand our neighbours and maintain cordial and peaceful relations, however different we may be. We are not proposing an alliance, merely diplomatic normalcy.

I hope that you will find this answer elucidating and that upon this basis we can form a good faith working relationship.

In the name of the Empress,

GREAT BOUNTIFUL EMPIRE OF THE UNITED TURTLES, MUSHROOMS, AND MEN OF TURTLESHROOM
EXECUTIVE CABINET OF PEERS
IMPERIAL MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS
TURTLESHROOMIAN STATE DIPLOMATIC CORPS
DEAN

TO THE ESTEEMED AND HONORED ICEMAN EMPEROR AND THE ROYAL COURT THEREOF
YOUR SHIVERING EXCELLENCY AND IMPERIAL MAJESTY:

While our nations sharply oppose each other in terms of religion, the presence of a country in such a far-distant north and the resources that would bring makes us consider the fruit that could be yielded in cooperation. While we oppose chattel slavery in all its forms and hope for a time when religious tolerance is permitted, we understand that this takes time.

We are humbled to dispatch a TurtleShroomian delegation to the Iceman's realm, and hope to meet His Shivering Excellency and the esteemed court therein, and establish a fruitful relationship between our emperors.

We are grateful for such an opportunity and for the benevolence and hospitality of the Icemen.




Full nation name: Great Bountiful Empire of the United Turtles, Mushrooms, and Men of TurtleShroom

Short nation name: TurtleShroom, or Great Bountiful Empire of TurtleShroom

Trigram: PWN or TSP, your choice

National ideology: Far-right to extreme-right.

Any specific building requested?: Place us where you will. We only request the ability

Full list of diplomatic personnel:
We will dispatch Vanill Roberts, a sapient mushroom who has conversational understanding of the language of the Icemen.

While he is not truly fluent, he immediately volunteered out of his passion for what he considers to be a beautiful language. He hopes, in his spare time, to eventually be able to translate Icemen classics and the Cult of Klyprer's scriptures to further TurtleShroomian understanding of the false pagan faiths and cultural epics.

Vanill was never particularly religious, but his self-teaching has made him more open to the Cult of Klyprer's teachings than anyone else here. He wants to learn more about the Ice States' religion, of your Klyprer god, as he has long sought out belonging in a faith.

We will also be sending three additional employees, all of whom are female, Oriental humans. Their names and information will be included in the addendum you will receive when this dispatch is presented. They are Taiping, which is an unorthodox, Oriental offshoot of Christianity unrelated to the actual faith. Their scriptures include, obviously, the Bible, but also the prophecies, writings, and beliefs of Xiuquan Hong and Rengan Hong. Please see our note before.

If it pleases His Shivering Excellency, we humbly request that Vanill be afforded a tutor fluent in your country's language, and access to a Cult of Klyprer shaman, as he has expressed continuously his interest in learning about your god or gods and if they are worthy of his worship, as you deem them to be.


List all items being taken to the embassy that may constitute prohibited goods:
The three staff under Vanill request to be able to bring their religion's scriptures and a Bible, and be afforded the ability to worship God and their dual "Celestial Brothers", Jesus and Xiuquan. They are willing to respect your prohibition of proselyzation if they can be afforded a place to worship or at least an unaccosted space within the Ambassador's quarters. Vanill himself is more interested in attending your religion's services!


Do you want a division of the Ice military to deploy at your embassy?:
While we would prefer protection from Icemen soldiers, we are scared that they, in zeal for their faith and in accordance with Iceman law, might harm Vanill's staff for practicing an Abrahamic-derived religion.

We trust that you, like any great empire, have instilled discipline, honor, and the ability to accept orders. However, your prohibition of dissent and foreign religions makes us fear that our delegation could be endangered by those sworn to protect them.

Can His Shivering Excellency, your theocratic Divine Scribe and the Cult of Klyprer, and those guarding us accept unbelievers and respect their right to worship? More importantly, can you guarantee us and our diplomatic staff that they will not be persecuted if they disagree with an imperial policy regarding, say, TurtleShroom or worship a god foreign to your people?


Does your nation accept the legitimacy of the divine-favoured regime of the Empire of The Ice States, and seek to establish good faith relations with the nation?:
    While TurtleShroom, as a matter of official policy, rejects the divinity, deity, and existence of both a "god-emperor" and a pagan theocracy, this does not extend to the Ice States.

    We do hereby proclaim these promises:

    We recognize His Shivering Excellency and the Ice States Crown as the sole, legitimate sovereign of the secular and temporal realm that he presides over in the Ice States. We recognize the authority and legitimacy of the Ice States and its government as it stands. We recognize, as a right of national sovereignty, the privilege of the Ice States to operate a theocracy. We pledge to treat Cult of Klyprer observers, their shamans, and their Divine Scribes with dignity and respect their right to worship and publicly express their loyalty to their god or gods.

    As a gesture of good faith and kindness to the Ice States theocracy and its faithful, we pledge to immediately open an impartial delegation and investigation to the Divine Scribe in order to define and understand the teachings of the Cult of Klyprer under TurtleShroomian law. Recognizing the Cult of Klyprer affords it legal equality with all heathen faiths in TurtleShroom and grants it and its clergy total tax exemption, unrestricted proselyzation privileges anywhere in TurtleShroom and at any time or place, an unrestricted ability to conduct its rites to sacrifice animals (no sapient beings allowed), and the right of sanctuary where applicable.




We are both eager and honored to start a new chapter of bilateral relations, trade, and prosperity between our two empires and form a mutual respect and goodwill between our great peoples.

We humbly invite the Ice States to reciprocate this good-faith gesture by applying for diplomatic representation in TurtleShroom.

God bless the Ice States and their emperor. Ten thousand years!



Thank you.
-DEAN OF THE TURTLESHROOMIAN STATE DIPLOMATIC CORPS, IN REPRESENTATION OF THE IMPERIAL MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS OF THE GREAT BOUNTIFUL EMPIRE OF THE UNITED TURTLES, MUSHROOMS, AND MEN OF TURTLESHROOM

Ooc: The embassy with Ishisan has been retconned, as Ishisan has been CTE for over a month. Should they revive, they may reapply for an embassy.

To: Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Holy Marsh
From: Duke Jeramy Vliet of Magecastle

To whom it may concern _

We have reviewed the Marshite application for an embassy with The Ice States. However, due to the Marshite history with The Ice States -- in particular, their blockade on the Empire, and long-standing war with the Empire up until the recent Mer'cia Extrema, we cannot accept your embassy application immediately. Instead, we seek further conversation with the Marshite Ministry of Foreign Affairs before we can open an embassy for your nation. Therefore, I would like to ask several questions to your nation. Firstly, what is Holy Marsh's reasons for applying for an embassy with the Ice States? Secondly, what common ground does your nation have or seek with the Ice States?

To: Duke Jeramy Vliet of Magecastle
From: Samantha Charsus, Sister-Superior of the Communications Department in the Foreign Church Service

Greetings Duke Vilet,

We seek to establish an Embassy with your nation for various reasons. First, the Theocracy will play a role in the monitoring of your evolution away from slavery and such efforts would be best coordinated on a more local level for both nations' benefit. Second, your nation is quite close to ours and now that the policy differences between our nations have lessened we believe it important to communicate and work together. Improved relations between our nations can only ever be beneficial in this new world. As for common ground, that remains to be seen- our nations have been at a distance for some time. Certainly, now that the hostility is decreasing we can find common cause on local security and trade matters, and time will tell as to the rest.

With Blessings,
Sister-Superior Charsus

Thought for the Day: Obedience and Zeal are their own rewards.
