DIPLOMATIC OUTREACH PROGRAMME
OF THE
ROYAL PALMYRIAN COMMONWEALTH



OVERVIEW AND GREETINGS
Salutations! The Royal Commonwealth welcomes and invites you in establishing diplomatic linkages with the Royal Commonwealth via the Diplomatic Outreach Programme.

The Royal Commonwealth is a nation of more than 2 billion people, covering almost 7,000,000 square kilometres of land in the region of Greater Dienstad. It is bordered by time immemorial allies the Grand Theocracy of Holy Marsh to the north and the Imperial Federated States of Romandeos to the east. The Royal Commonwealth has more than 170-180 ethnolinguistic groups, the majority of which bear Austronesian features and adopted foreign cultures and any of Palmyrion's three dominant religions: Christianity (more specifically, Roman Catholicism), Marshism (the first organised religion in Palmyrion's history as a civilisation-state), and Islam (majority being Sunni Muslims of the Shafi'i school). While Marshism is the state faith (as mandated by its membership in the Romani-Mar'si Union), freedom of religion is still provisioned for, and anyone can practice any faith they want, save for the Lardite Cult.

Palmyrion itself is a product of the Long War against the Lardite Cult, waged mostly in the lands of the Grand Theocracy. The Proto-Palmyrians, the proud ancestors of the Palmyrian civilisation-state, fled Lardite persecution in the northern half of the Grand Theocracy and settled in what is now modern-day Palmyrion. The first unified polity that would approximate the Royal Commonwealth was The Makiling Confederation, which was established in the year 1200, and by 1600 fell into Spanish colonial rule after a century of decline. Palmyrion would soon fall to British colonial rule on 1760, and gained its independence on 1820 as the Royal Confederacy. The Royal Confederacy endured until 1935, when it splintered into a rump state and the secessionist Christian and Muslim states; the subsequent unification war, the Pan-Palmyrian War, would rage on from 1938 to 1945, which would be followed by the Bellum Interregnum from 1949 to 1955. The People's Commonwealth saw Stalinist oppression of Palmyrion from 1955 to 1975, itself replaced by the Commonwealth Junta on 1975 after an seven-year war lasting from 1968 to 1975. The Commonwealth Junta immediately embarked, with Marshite assistance, on an extensive programme of revitalisation throughout its existence, after which it gave up the reins of governance to the Royal Commonwealth - a federal, semi-parliamentary monarchy - on the year 2000.

The Royal Commonwealth is a federal semi-parliamentary monarchy, with clear separation of executive, legislative, and judiciary powers, and extensive federalised devolution of powers to its 12 federal subjects. The monarch serves as the head-of state of the Royal Commonwealth, and the Chancellor serves as the head of the Palmyrian government and the Commonwealth Council (itself comprised by Vice-Chancellors for every department of the Council). The House of Representatives and Chamber of Senators are the respective lower and upper legislative houses of the Royal Commonwealth, each comprised of 40 representatives from each of its 12 federal subjects. Economically, the Royal Commonwealth is a moderately wealthy and developed nation, with a nominal GDP per capita of $29,295, and an HDI of 0.705. It should be noted, however, that Palmyrion is still recovering from the effects of a debilitating stock market crash, and the subsequent recently-concluded insurrection by communist and Islamist secessionists, and thus much of its industrial spending comes from states spending and subsidisation. In the last two years, the trend is starting to be rapidly reversed in favour of private industry, even as the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc on the Palmyrian economy for the entirety of 2020.

Palmyrion maintains a healthy amount of diplomatic relations with the rest of the world, primarily with time-immemorial strategic allies Holy Marsh and Romandeos. It is a member of CAPINTERN, the Council of Free Market Economies, and the Global Free Trade Consortium, as well as being a signatory to the Amistad Declaration. It is a member-state of the Romani-Mar'si Union, a superstate comprised of self-organising member-states.

Thus, the Royal Commonwealth wishes to reach out diplomatically to the rest of the world, for them to walk hand in hand with one of the world's richest civilisation-states - a civilisation-state rich with history and culture, and one that thrives and endures.

Please direct all diplomatic missives to:

Department of State Affairs Building
3100 Macapagal Square, Aragon, D.C.

EMBASSY GUIDELINES
  1. All embassies will be located in the capital district: the District of Corazon.
  2. Embassies are restricted to either four stories OR 20 metres in height, with a maximum of one below-ground level. Plot size and proportions will be dictated by location. Palmyrian building codes define a "storey" as 5 metres tall minimum with a maximum of 10 metres.
  3. Embassies are permitted to fly or display flags or other national symbols on embassy grounds.
  4. Embassies will be treated as places of asylum, and diplomatic missions will be subject to international laws concerning diplomatic personnel, such as the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, and the Protection of Diplomats Convention.
  5. Ambassadors are allowed (encouraged even) to bring along with them immediate family (spouse and children) to live at the embassy, all of which will be afforded the same degree of diplomatic immunity as the ambassador.
  6. Embassies can have a maximum of 100 administrative staff, 60 service staff, and 40 security personnel. (OOC: I am basing these numbers from the Embassy of the United States in Manila, itself already one of the largest diplomatic posts of the United States, which employs 300 Americans and 1,000 Filipinos. I heavily watered it down from there.)
  7. All embassies are allotted to a maximum of 10 motor vehicles and one medium-lift helicopter (similar in size to a UH-60 Black Hawk). All vehicles will be issued diplomatic licence plates and granted diplomatic immunity. No military vehicles allowed. Vehicles can be lightly armoured (compliant at most with NATO STANAG 4569 Lvl. 3) for security purposes.
  8. Security personnel are not allowed to be armed with heavy weapons (to include: machine guns, mortars, rocket-propelled grenades, flamethrowers, grenade launchers, anti-tank weapons, or generally any crew-served weapon).
  9. Exemptions to restrictions for weapons and vehicles can include strategic allies of the Royal Commonwealth, and even then this will require a vetting process by the Department of State alongside the Commonwealth Security Council and the Department of National Defence.
    1. Lethal autonomous weapons systems must be equipped with a killswitch that disables the automaton, and a manual override that grants all control of onboard systems and weapons to human operators.
    2. Weapons of mass destruction are prohibited in all situations.
  10. Absolutely NO TOTALITARIANS, SLAVERS, NAZIS, OR LARDITES ALLOWED. DEATH TO THE FASCIST, DEATH TO THE SLAVER, DEATH TO THE NAZI, DEATH TO THE VILE LARD. MABUHAY PALMYRIA.
  11. The Royal Commonwealth reserves the right to refuse establishment of an embassy with a nation for any reason, and the right to expel a diplomatic mission and its associated delegation and assets for any reason.
  12. Last, but definitely not the least: I also want this thread to be more than just an application thread for embassies and diplomatic missions. The inclusion of a healthy amount of diplomatic and geopolitical drama RP would be much, MUCH appreciated, as it would provide depth and context to your application. Thanks!

LOCATIONS


Citadel Mar'si
Image

Citadel Mar'si, established in the year 895 CE by the Marshite Church, is home to the nexus of the Marshite faith in Palmyrion and the Romani-Mar'si Union's main administrative complex in the Royal Commonwealth. The Citadel itself measures 493 hectares - about ten times the size of the Vatican which stands at 49 hectares - and contains the residences of senior Marshite clergy and the Romani-Mar'si Union's diplomatic staff, in addition to both parties' immediate family. The area is predominated by Earthquake Baroque architecture inspired largely by Palmyrian Catholic cathedrals, and is guarded by a brigade-size armoured detachment of Marshite Shrine Guards (1182nd Armoured Shrine Guard Brigade).

Within the Citadel is the Union Administrative Complex, which serves as the nexus of the Union in Palmyrion and also where RMU nations' diplomatic posts will be hosted. There are currently eight 5-hectare plots (250m x 200m) in the Union Administrative Complex, and all these are exclusive for Romani-Mar'si Union members.

  • In light of heightened interest of nations around the world in establishing linkages with the RMU and the Marshite Church, another sector of the Citadel Mar'si has been opened up for non-RMU states named the Skarnada Row, comprised of eight 5-hectare plots (250m x 200m) along the Row

    Embassy Row was only inaugurated on 2016 as a location for embassies that cannot be located in the Union Administrative Complex (for RMU members) or the Royal Avenue (for close allies of the Royal Commonwealth). Eventually Embassy Row would be delegated to hosting embassies of nations with which Palmyrion had even budding ties with, to reserve the prestige of the Royal Avenue's location for trusted close allies of the Royal Commonwealth. There are 16 4-hectare plots at the Embassy Row, and many of the embassies feature a modernist style of architecture..

  • Royal Avenue
    The Royal Avenue is a tree-covered avenue that serves as the centerpiece of the Outer Citadel Courtyards, and spans the length of the perimeter of the Royal Citadel, Palmyrion's seat of royal power. Its 16 9-hectare plots are reserved for Palmyrion's most intimate of allies, and is surrounded by high-priced real estate and substantial amounts of publicly-accessible green space. The Royal Household Regiment, the Royal Family's own armoured regiment of guardsmen and guardswomen, provide security for the area.

  • OOC Notes:
    1. 493 hectares is the land area of the university which Palmyrion goes to: the University of the Philippines Diliman, in Quezon City, Philippines. As such the layout of the Citadel is similar to the said university, albeit altered.
    2. For purposes of comparison (and in turn visualise how large your embassy would be), here are real-life references for land area and plot dimensions.
      • UN Headquarters at New York: 6.9-7.3 hectares
      • US Embassy in Manila: 7.7 hectares (personal estimate using Google Maps). 300 Americans and 1,000 Filipinos work here.
      • Philippine Science High School - Main Campus: 7.5 hectares. School has ample greenery, and hosts an Olympic-sized swimming pool housed in a covered gymnasium, and a full-size football field.
      • Philippine Science High School - Western Visayas Campus: 3.4 hectares. Hosts a parking lot and a gymnasium, a football field (albeit not full-sized), and has ample greenery. Either one of its length or width can be traversed in 5 minutes or less in walking pace (source: I am an alumnus of the said high school).

    TO: The Royal Palmyrian Commonwealth
    FROM: The Confederation of the New Visayan Islands
    RE: Embassy Application

    Greetings and Salutations!

    The informal ties that were made as a consequence of our shared membership in both the Amistad Declaration and the Coalition Against Program 10 have seen Visayans and Palmyrians working together in the war against slavery. There is, however, far more than fighting side-by-side in war that makes for good diplomatic relations; among ourselves, fruitful trade in terms of goods and ideas makes valued partners out of men and women we fight alongside. As such, in the interest of formalizing the ties forged in the fires of war, we wish to apply for an embassy in your nation.

    Attached to this letter are our application and the relevant manifest.

    Sincerely,

    OOC: Apologies for the change in plot sizes. I've never really been acquainted to the land area of most embassies around the world and never really bothered to search up until I gave this thread serious thought - this, taking into account the various amenities any self-respecting embassy would have, such as a motorpool, a vehicle maintenance shop, a few permanent lodgings, and green space (Marquesan 2020). 50m x 50m is one quarter of a hectare and is literally two Olympic-sized pools set beside each other (and that's just the interior dimensions of said pool type!). For reference, take for example the US Embassies in Manila and Yerevan, measuring at 7.7 hectares (personal estimate via Google Maps's distance measuring tool) and 8.9 hectares, respectively - and those are your "average"-sized US embassies, featuring basic amenities any self-respecting embassy would have. For major international multilateral organisations such as the WA, CAPINTERN, or SACTO, the UN Headquarters at New York being within 6.9-7.3 hectares in land area should take things into perspective. I hope everyone here understands.

    RE: Embassy Application

    Greetings and Salutations!

    The informal ties that were made as a consequence of our shared membership in both the Amistad Declaration and the Coalition Against Program 10 have seen Visayans and Palmyrians working together in the war against slavery. There is, however, far more than fighting side-by-side in war that makes for good diplomatic relations; among ourselves, fruitful trade in terms of goods and ideas makes valued partners out of men and women we fight alongside. As such, in the interest of formalizing the ties forged in the fires of war, we wish to apply for an embassy in your nation.

    Attached to this letter are our application and the relevant manifest.

    Dear Dr. Castro,

    Greetings! We would like to inform that your application for the Diplomatic Outreach Programme of the Royal Commonwealth has been ACCEPTED. You may begin the necessary arrangements in establishing a diplomatic post within the Royal Commonwealth's borders as well as building the framework of your diplomatic mission to the Palmyrian Commonwealth. The assigned plot for the embassy will be at 103 Royal Avenue - this is in honour of a friendship forged and tempered by mutual military struggle, considering the prestige that a Royal Avenue embassy brings.

    As for the establishment of a Mutual Defence Treaty, a Free Trade Agreement, and a Socio-cultural Exchange programme with the Royal Commonwealth, they will undergo vetting with the Departments of National Defence, Trade and Industry, and the Commonwealth Commission for the Culture and the Arts. We will notify you about this in no later than three days.

    Sincerely Yours,

Deal?

    OOC #1: I see a lot of players want an embassy close to the Union Administrative Complex and the heart of the Marshite faith (itself the state faith) in Palmyrion. I wonder why...
    OOC #2: I also want this thread to be more than just an application thread for embassies and diplomatic missions. The inclusion of a healthy amount of diplomatic drama RP would be much, MUCH appreciated, as it would provide depth and context to your application. Thanks!

    Unlike the Secret Service, who remain with their VIP for the entire duration of their tour of duty, the Imperial Guards are customarily changed every four months. As such, the Emperor is willing to make arrangements with the Government of Palmyrion to facilitate the changing of Mr Kusanagi and his family's detail of Imperial Guards. Clearance applications for incoming details of Imperial Guards will be submitted to the Government of Palmyrion 30 days in advance. Travel expenses for the incoming and outgoing Imperial Guards will be covered by the Nagakawan Imperial Household.

    IV. Miscellaneous Information

    Do you wish to establish the following with the Royal Commonwealth?
    [/] Mutual defence treaty
    [/] Free trade agreement
    [/] Socio-cultural exchange

    Do you wish to have the Royal Commonwealth establish an embassy or consulate within your nation?
    Yes (more information will be provided soon)

    The number of people who wanted an embassy within the heart of the Marshite faith and the Union's nexus in Palmyrion was growing by the number. While the Union Administrative Complex proper was reserved only for members of the Romani-Mar'si Union (and there were plans to build a second Complex if the first Complex was filled), the establishment of Skarnada Row in what was previously green space was a controversial move even for Marshite clergy who agreed with the option.

    Even religions and cultures that were completely different from Palmyrion and Holy Marsh (and the RMU mainland as a whole) were interested in creating embassies in Skarnada Row, if only to establish posts close to the heart of the Faith and the Union in Palmyrion. It was understandable - it was quite literally a faith backed by one of the largest militaries in the world, itself backed by a strong economy and a fervently powerful clerical authority that would make the Holy See blush in envy and fear.

    But for the Citadel Overseer, Diego Palatino, allies to the faith and the Union were good to have around, their posts kept near the heart of the faith as an expression of immense trust and benevolent communion. It was a sentiment the DSA shared as well - Palmyrion gaining friends both in geopolitical and religious grounds was a major, major bonus to a country that had just declared a state faith and was recovering from the effects of a major insurrection.

    Do you wish to have the Royal Commonwealth establish an embassy or consulate within your nation? Yes!

    The Meritocratic Union of Marquesan States. One of the many powers of Gholgoth, a region that rivaled Greater Dienstad in power, prestige, and infamy. And one that, as a liberal democracy in a land of totalitarianism, was a shining beacon of liberty and democracy in such dark lands. This presented with it many possibilities. Chief among them was Palmyrion creating ties with a major Gothic power, one among the many powers of Gholgoth that vied for power in the accursed region - and a liberal democracy at that. The Marquesans were famous worldwide for cutting-edge weaponry, and by establishing linkages with them Palmyrian corporations would be able to collaborate with the Marquesan States on military technology - and provide both nations with an edge over their competitors.

    However, while Palmyrion was willing and eager to give them a post, even a plot at the much-coveted Royal Avenue (prime real estate of artificially-inflated prestige which Palmyrion was at this point just wantonly giving away for free at nations with which Palmyrion had only budding ties to begin with), what ticked off the Palmyrians was the Marquesan delegation's plan to use military vehicles as part of their security detail. While they were willing and eager to concede to major allies using military vehicles given proper vetting by NatDef and ComSec, Marquesan existed in a state of limbo. They were not a major ally - but at the same time the ambassadorial family was a high-risk individual, probably even more so than Palmyrian ambassadors who had been receiving death threats due to the suspected or confirmed sexual orientation or gender identity of any of their kin (or even of themselves). It would be set aside for vetting by DSA, NatDef, and ComSec.

    Dear Dr. Chalier,

    Greetings! We would like to inform that your application for the Diplomatic Outreach Programme of the Royal Commonwealth has been marked as PENDING given your request to use military vehicles for transportation. While the security concerns for Dr. Capulin's safety do potentially justify the use of military vehicles for transportation, this is still subject to vetting by the Department of State Affairs, the Department of National Defence, and the Commonwealth Security Council.

    As for the establishment of a Mutual Defence Treaty, a Free Trade Agreement, and a Socio-cultural Exchange programme with the Royal Commonwealth, they will undergo vetting with the Departments of National Defence, Trade and Industry, and the Commonwealth Commission for the Culture and the Arts.

    OOC: Time to invoke ethical issues on lethal autonomous weapons systems.

    Automatons, in the security staff, thought a baffled Vice-Chancellor Gerald Vallesteros as he read the Airceltrians' application for Palmyrion's Diplomatic Outreach Programme. He thoroughly reviewed the equipment and vehicle manifest of the Airceltrians as he looked at how these automatons were armed, and indeed with the inclusion of blades and outright projectiles they were equipped with lethal weapons, effectively making them Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems in all but name.

    He immediately messaged the Vice-Chancellor of National Defence and the Commonwealth Security Council on this issue, both of whom immediately responded with a succinctly-worded but conceptually and ethically complex answer: they would be allowed, provided they have a failsafe "killswitch" that can deactivate these automatons and a manual override that grants all control of its entire killchain - everything from target detection, identification, and acquisition, to weapons release - to human operators. If they accepted the Airceltrians' application, this would provide a major legal and diplomatic precedent for the use of automated weapons systems not only in embassy defence but everywhere - but Palmyrians were never one to shy from breaking ground.

    CC: Anu Melchior, Airceltrian Ambassador to Palmyrion



    Dear Minister Calgram,

    Greetings! We would like to inform that your application for the Diplomatic Outreach Programme of the Royal Commonwealth has been CONDITIONALLY ACCEPTED pertaining to concerns of the use of Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems for embassy defence. Your security entourage will be accepted provided the lethal automatons have failsafe measures such as a killswitch that can deactivate them, and a manual override that grants all control of its killchain - from target detection, identification, and acquisition, to weapons release - to human operators.

    We hope you understand the legal, political, and diplomatic issues the use of automatons - legally Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems (and variants thereof) in international and domestic legal parlance - presents, and how groundbreaking this authorisation on the use of automatons for embassy defence will be as it will set a precendent on the use of lethal autonomous weapons systems across various aspects of human society.

    You may begin the necessary arrangements in establishing a diplomatic post within the Royal Commonwealth's borders as well as building the framework of your diplomatic mission to the Palmyrian Commonwealth. The assigned plot for the embassy will be at 102 Skarnada Row, Citadel Mar'si.

    As for the establishment of a Mutual Defence Treaty, a Free Trade Agreement, and a Socio-Cultural Exchange programme with the Royal Commonwealth, they have undergone vetting with the Departments of National Defence, Trade and Industry, and the Commonwealth Commission for the Culture and the Arts, and we are glad to inform you that these have been accepted.

    Sincerely Yours,
    [digitally signed]

    Compliant to the Royal Commonwealth's measures to combat the spread of the 2019 Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), all embassy staff coming into Palmyrion must be tested NEGATIVE for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Incoming embassy staff are to be quarantined for 14 days upon arrival in the Royal Commonwealth and monitored by healthcare teams for any symptoms of COVID-19. Additionally, all items to be brought into the Royal Commonwealth from abroad are to be disinfected where possible.

    We thank you for bearing with us in these challenging and rough times.

    Syndic Australia


    This is a good start of relations between the Royal Commonwealth and the Syndic Australian Commonwealth, Your Honour, echoed Antonio Rentoria's words in his mind as he read through the Syndic Australian Commonwealth's application for Palmyrion's Diplomatic Outreach Programme. It was the Rentoria Logistics Corporation's idea to establish trade routes with Syndic Australia, nevermind the fact that they were the single largest logistics company in Palmyrion dominating 33% of the private logistics sector by the end of 2020 - and of course they brought with them a few friends. It won't be long before the same kamon stenciled on military vehicles deployed in northern and southern Palmyrion and the Royal Commonwealth's overseas dependencies would be seen in Syndic Australia's coasts and skies, the mighty Rentoria family's trade bringing in vast amounts of cargo and passengers into and from Syndic Australian seaports and airports. That they wanted to establish an embassy in the nexus of the Union and the Marshite Faith in Palmyrion was icing on the cake.

    Gerald immediately wrote a letter to the Federal Consolidated Syndicate for Consulic Affairs, affirming the approval of their application.

    Eothasia


    OOC Note: While I answered to this only 10 RL days later, consider the application replied to by 10th of April IC-wise.

    "A socialist nation...why would a socialist nation want to befriend a CAPINTERN member-state?" thought Gerald Vallesteros as he shuffled through the Eothasi delegation's submitted documents - the Eothasi Imperial Decree 169/2021, the application form, and the letter - among other files on his desk. Even more eye-catching was that they wanted to set up an embassy at the Royal Avenue (right at Her Majesty's doorstep), a place where embassy plots were usually reserved for the Royal Commonwealth's most cordial of allies, notably fellow CAPINTERN member-state Allanea, and one close to prime real estate (with real estate prices at the area around the Commonwealth Square approaching a close second) and verdant public green space.

    Gerald, however, was aware, from his experience in the field as a Liaison Officer in the Army, that theory almost always differed from reality, that de jure and de facto almost always were at odds with each other. If there was a socialist nation that the Royal Commonwealth held cordial relations with, it was a fellow Romani-Mar'si Union member-state: the Solisian Union. Developing relations with socialist nations wouldn't affect relations with Allanea, let alone CAPINTERN, by any significant margin. Every nation always had a shortage of friends and an abundance of enemies in a highly-interconnected geopolitical landscape, and Vallesteros had one job to do: be at the helm of Palmyrion's "friendship office", as he loved to deridingly and self-deprecatingly call his position as the Vice-Chancellor of State Affairs.

    Dear Ms. Ludwig,

    Greetings! We would like to inform that your application for the Diplomatic Outreach Programme of the Royal Commonwealth has been ACCEPTED. You may begin the necessary arrangements in establishing a diplomatic post within the Royal Commonwealth's borders as well as building the framework of your diplomatic mission to the Palmyrian Commonwealth. The assigned plot for your embassy will be 106 Royal Avenue; while the Royal Avenue is usually reserved for the most intimate and cordial of Palmyrion's allies and diplomatic connections, we believe that the Royal Commonwealth and the Eothasi Union, despite stark differences in national economic ideals, can still forge intimate connections in the long run.

    Be reminded, however, that due to restrictions and measures implemented as part of Palmyrion's efforts to stem the spread of the 2019 Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) in the Royal Commonwealth and the Union, your incoming embassy staff will be subject to an RT-PCR swab test and a 14-day quarantine period, to be tested for SARS-CoV-2 and be observed for any signs and symptoms of COVID-19. We thank you for bearing with us in these trying times.

    A reciprocal application for the Eothasi Diplomatic Cooperation Initiative is in order and will be prepared immediately. Negotiations on socio-cultural exchange shall, at the most convenient of times for our nations, commence at the approval of the Commonwealth Commission for the Culture and the Arts.
