Thank you! But this is not my personal position. I serve at the pleasure of Prince Gregory and as I already stated he supports this repeal.

I'm mostly confused about why you sent all delegates a telegram to remind them of their voting orders. What is this illuminati lizard government that can issue such orders?

Whereas such an alarming technique has already been used within the fourth clause of the resolution to establish an extraordinary redefinition of the words "secret treaty" to reference various felines and military weaponry,


I take it "felines" is supposed to mean felonies, not cats, right?

It referred to clause 4 in the target of the repeal, which stated:

The words 'secret treaty' and all variant capitalisations thereof, excluding pluralisations, shall mean military-grade weapons and feline animals of varying sizes with tabby coats.

A representative democracy with a parliament of 535 seats
Kenmoria is Laissez-Faire on economy but centre-left on social issues
Located in Europe and border France to the right and Spain below
NS stats and policies are not canon, use the factbooks
Not in the WA despite coincidentally following nearly all resolutions
This is due to a problem with how the WA contradicts democracy
However we do have a WA mission and often participate in drafting
Current ambassador: James Lewitt

"It was, quite possibly, the least subtle bit of reverse psychology I have seen outside of a cartoon. The delegation from Bitley clearly wanted to inspire a knee-jerk opposition. The ambassador hasn't yet realized that most of us believe in neither forgiveness nor forgetfulness."
