The Mernian ambassador, Theodosius Wells (he's an immigrant) enters the bar and flops down on a stool.
"Neville, gin and tonic for me please."
Then, to the room at large, "For God's sake, if anyone creates a redundant committee again I'll kill you. I don't know what the hell Foreign Affairs were playing at when they told us to make a list of committees, but it almost killed me, what with no assistants."
He becomes refreshed after downing his drink, and stares at the man next to him, who is finishing his rant.
"Have a cup of tea, mate!"

She slams a 10 on the counter. "Beer me."

She then turns to the person next to her. "I'm doing badly, thank you for asking. A performance review came up, and they decided I can continue on in my punitive assignment- that is, I'm still stuck here- instead of moving up into a role I can actually be of use in. Sometimes I think I should have just stuck with the family business instead of moving into politics..."

The Naqin Ambassador is Ixhua of House Yavuas. She's extremely traditionalist, and is known to have her eye on the Presidency for when President Dratan retires.

"Being an ambassador isn't the worst thing ever," She replies, a bit overwhelmed by the exposition dump. "I mean, you get to travel everywhere and meet new people. Then again, it probably would have been less pressure going in to the family business."

She took another sip. "What type of business does your family run?"

Oh, if you thought that was an exposition dump... "Well, I say 'business' but that's just because it's part of the phrase. I'm from House Yavuas, and we're a priest House," explains Ixhua. "We used to be a major name, too. Back before the coup of '93, it was almost guaranteed that the Councilor of Culture would be a Yavuas. After the coup, though..." She shook her head. "I figured that going into politics could get some of our old respect back. Instead I ended up here. We're not even WA members- literally my only job is to give prior warning if the WA were to start interfering with non-members. This isn't what I wanted at all."

"Well that certainly doesn't sound optimal," she replied. "Did you try going for an actual elected position? Ambassador may get you some popularity if you're running, but there wouldn't be any harm to start running whenever first starting your career in politics."

Ixhua shook her head. "I went into the political track and started my training when His Most Glorious Dictator was in power. Elections didn't exist- the only political positions at all were either as cronies or as ambassadors. Even now that he's been overthrown, options are limited. The only elected positions are the Council itself, and I just do not have the sway for one of those."

A woman wearing a sharp suit and an air of quiet indignation walks into the room and takes a seat by the bar. “I’ll have a credit card application, heavy on the typos,” she says to Neville. “On the cheapest paper you have. In Comic Sans, if possible. If it looks in any way professional, it’s not strong enough.”

Ambassador Drane enters the bar. He stops when he notices a very quiet Herby near the doorway. He looks around; no one appears to be paying him any mind. He removes an exacto knife from his pocket, extends the blade, and walks up to Herby's driver side... no no, of course, that won't work, he thinks. He sighs, puts the "weapon" back in his pocket, and takes a seat at the bar. "Neville," he greets the bartender quietly, "tequilla, straight up."
-- Herbert Jackson Drane IV, WA Ambassador of the newly independent Imperial Polk County, Population 665,000. That "xxx million" population stat? It's most certainly a typo.

Pink simply shrugged at the newcomer's request. It was by no means the strangest thing he had seen someone order here. The coffee had arrived at the table by this point, and he was about to take a sip when the door flew open and hit the wall with a rather loud bang.

"I love the smell of whisky in the morning." said Captain Wilson, strolling over to Pink's table. Jack Dawson rolled his eyes as he followed her.
"Ambassador." She continued, extending her hand.
"Captain." came Pink's reply. "I trust the flight in was alright?"
"We had some issues on vortex exit." Wilson answered, taking a seat. "There's some temporal instability here. You wouldn't -"
"No. It's always been like that. Just try not to fall asleep." His gaze returned to the door. "Where's Anna?"
"Fainted." Dawson interjected. "Sarah's taken her to the zero room, she'll come round eventually. Left her a note and a form, no worries." He took a seat of his own and picked up his coffee. "Now, about this Overseer..."

Steph looks extremely startled. She glances back and forth several times between Helen and the bar-back mirror, squinting occasionally. "Save yourself!" she whispers, as loudly as she dare (not very). Then, with a frightened scowl, Steph raises her hands in front of her. She makes the sign of the hammer-and-sickle with her fingers, keeping it at shoulder level like a shield or ward, and backs slowly out of the bar. The door shuts behind her and heavily-booted footsteps can be heard sprinting down the hall for a few moments afterward.

Leo shrugs. "I didn't imagine she believed in vampires. Hmm." He gestures at Drane, then looks over at the nearest bartender. "Did I hear a request for tequila? Fetch me one too, if you please."

Drane, without looking up, morosely waves his glass in the air in Leo's general direction. "Cheers." He downs it and briefly makes a face. "Damn. Neville, let's try a different one, something from Mexico. Like a Patrón. And with a wedge of lime on the side."

After a few iterations, Drane finally notices the beeping. He briefly looks in the direction of the now inanimate car, and shakes his head. He salts his hand, licks it, downs the second tequila shot, and sucks on the lime. "Mmm. Much better."

"My tab," Trevanyika corrects herself. "So, what is a living embodiment of a corporation doing in the World Assembly?"
