ENCYCLOPEDIC COMPENDIUM OF THE MONAVIAN EMPIRE
____________________________________________________________


INTRODUCTION


This thread serves as a portal through which the entire NS community can access OOC and IC reference material regarding the Imperial Federation of the Monavian Empire. It provides links to all of the dispatches that you can find on my nation account’s homepage and contains reference posts covering material that could not be included in the homepage dispatches due to the limit on the number of them I am allowed to post. I have also included links to the repository where I store the previous (2008–2014) editions of my nation’s statistical overview factbook.

Each of the links in this post is followed by a description of the content it leads to for the purposes of helping direct any searches made by readers. Last, but far from least, I encourage all of my readers to post their comments, questions, and suggestions for improvements here in the interests of building up rapport with the community and fostering a stronger spirit of togetherness with my fellow players.




CANONICITY


The contents of this thread are completely and irrevocably canon as written, except in those places where I as the author make retroactive adjustments and emendations to remove errors and eliminate inconsistencies between minor details and the rest of the overall body of canon. All information about the Monavian Empire that was contained in previous threads, especially information about its history or culture, is voided to the extent that it conflicts with this compendium, all other portions remaining valid as originally stated. All content which existed within the old NationStates forum run by Jolt has been deleted as of October 2010 and is consequently voided to the extent that it does not appear in this compendium.

DISCLAIMER AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION


This compendium is meant to serve as an out of character (OOC) reference source for fellow players within the NS community. While much of the information contained in this compendium is openly knowable while in character (IC), please keep in mind that certain IC details are not. Players are free to cite details contained in this thread when planning or writing IC threads, but in all cases they should treat this information with appropriate discretion to avoid meta-gaming and other violations of the roleplaying conventions and practices that are generally accepted by other members of this site.

The text of this compendium is largely my original work, with the occasional exception of text attributed to third-party sources. Nothing contained in this thread may be plagiarized or used to misrepresent me as the author thereof, nor shall it be revised or altered except as permitted by site policies governing the posting and editing of user-created content. No outside party may use the content of this thread in any way which violates site and board rules, administrator and moderator policies, or applicable national and international copyright laws.

The credit for the creation of the original Great Seal of the Monavian Empire, the original flags of the nation's political parties, and all arms and emblems is due to Imagery Nation. The original national flag (no longer displayed) was created by Jeuna in 2007. The topographical maps were created by Alfegos.

FORMULARY FOR COMPOSING OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS

2020 EDITION


PREFACE


This document exists to serve as a compilation of examples of formats for official correspondence. Some categories contain multiple examples to demonstrate how specific types of nonstandard circumstances are best addressed.




Chapter 1: Declarations


Ultimatum

Image


August 6, 2016

Your Excellency:

WHEREAS the country formerly known as the Red Star Union was previously administered by an internationally recognized government prior to its collapse in 2015;

AND WHEREAS a rebellious organization called the Black Star Movement bombed an oil refinery in the city of Yakar in December 2014 and left 413 civilians dead as a result of their actions;

AND WHEREAS the Ordenite Reich materially supported the Black Star Movement’s revolutionary activities by supplying its personnel with armaments, ordinance, and training;

AND WHEREAS Ordenite mercenaries entered the Red Star Union’s sovereign territory without the authorization of its recognized government and thereby trespassed against the rights thereof;

AND WHEREAS the Ordenite government endorsed the Black Star Union’s destructive revolutionary activity by supporting it with members of its regular armed forces and ordered said personnel to engage in combat against the armed forces of the former Red Star Union;

AND WHEREAS the former Red Star Union’s internationally recognized government freely solicited military assistance from the People’s Unified Federation of Mokastana, Wellovia, Aqua Anu and Associated States in order to enforce internal order;

AND WHEREAS the Ordenite Reich’s Supreme Führer Christian Richtofen issued a formal statement (hereafter referred to as “the Richtofen Statement”) on July 7, 2015 and therein accused the People’s Unified Federation of violating the Red Star Union’s sovereignty;

AND WHEREAS the Richtofen Statement further stated that the Ordenite Reich would no longer recognize the indisputable fact of the Mokan nation’s statehood in contravention of accepted diplomatic customs prevailing since time immemorial;

AND WHEREAS the Richtofen Statement further stated that the Ordenite Reich would no longer recognize the regular uniformed military personnel of the People’s Unified Federation as lawful combatants and thus announced an intention on the part of the Ordenite government to contravene the laws and customs of war prevailing amongst civilized states;

AND WHEREAS the Richtofen Statement further stated that the Ordenite Reich thereby annexed the territory of the Red Star Union even though the internationally recognized government thereof did not consent to any such annexation;

AND WHEREAS the Richtofen Statement’s factually dubious charge that the People’s Unified Federation conducted itself inappropriately in its intercourse with the Red Star Union cast aspersions upon the integrity of Imperial Federation’s treaty alliance with the People’s Unified Federation under the Charter of the Fegosian Union;

AND WHEREAS the office of the Imperial Federation’s Minister of Foreign Affairs requested that the Ordenite Foreign Office furnish evidence supporting the Richtofen Statement’s claims regarding the Mokan government’s conduct;

AND WHEREAS the Ordenite Foreign Office failed to present evidence that supported the Richtofen Statement’s claims and instead offered as evidence a restatement of the claims themselves;

AND WHEREAS the Ordenite Foreign Office issued a letter to the Monavian Minister of Foreign Affairs in which it claimed that the Ordenite Wehrmacht had entered the Red Star Union to uphold the sovereignty of the Black Star Movement, thus imputing sovereignty to a non-state actor unrecognized by any other sovereign state;

AND WHEREAS the Ordenite Reich has subsequently invaded, conquered, annexed, and occupied the territory it has forcibly seized from the Red Star Union’s internationally recognized government, even though no other sovereign state has recognized these actions or formally accepted any of them as legitimate;

AND WHEREAS the Ordenite Reich has exported its nationals to the territory it has seized and thereby colonized it;

AND WHEREAS the Ordenite Reich’s Berlina Race Accords subsequently insulted and provoked countless foreign populations to anger by describing them as “subhuman” and “inferior” to the Ordenite population after accusing foreign governments of provocation and faulting them for allegedly doing so;

AND WHEREAS the Ordenite Foreign Office later issued a statement in which it referred to foreign populations as “parasitic and better deemed using the term ‘life unworthy of life’” and thereby cast aspersions on the Imperial Federation’s honor by implying that the Monavian government and the populace under its jurisdiction are unfit to merit the Ordenite Reich’s respect in the conduct of normal diplomatic intercourse;

AND WHEREAS the Ordenite Reich has formally declared war against the People’s Unified Federation on August 6, 2016 and subsequently engaged in combat operations against its regular armed forces;

AND WHEREAS national honor compels the Imperial Federation to refrain from using pretenses of ideological disagreement as justification for using war to achieve practical benefits and to reject and repudiate the employment of such pretenses by foreign states;

AND WHEREAS the Monavian government has determined from a candid observation of the aforementioned facts that it cannot afford to permit this unfortunate state of affairs to proceed along its present course without risking injury to the Imperial Federation’s freedom to engage in foreign trade;

AND WHEREAS the sovereign rulers of this country are charged with the solemn duty of asserting our sacred Empire’s rights and protecting its legitimate interests, among which We count the cessation of violence against our allies and the curtailment of ideologically-driven wars;

NOW KNOW YE that the Imperial Crown finds itself compelled to demand that the Ordenite government agree to:

I. Reinstate its recognition of the Mokan state as a legitimate legal entity capable of entering into diplomatic negotiations.

II. Recognize the Mokan government’s regular armed forces as legitimate combatants who are entitled to the rights which troops possess under the laws and customs of war that prevail among civilized nations.

III. Enact a ceasefire under which Ordenite forces shall completely terminate all combat operations against the People’s Unified Federation no later than 1200 hours on August 14, 2016.

IV. Pledge to send representatives to Chalcedon or some other neutral city of its choosing to negotiate a settlement of its dispute over the former Red Star Union and shall further agree to maintain its ceasefire within the territorial area of the former Red Star Union for the duration of these negotiations.

V. Renounce its presently unrecognized claims of sovereignty over the former Red Star Union.

VI. Notify the Monavian government without delay of the execution of the measures specified in the foregoing points.

None of these demands are open to negotiation. Should the Ordenite government fail to comply with the first and second provisions of this Ultimatum, the Monavian government shall construe such noncompliance as a calculated and deliberate violation of the laws and customs of war currently prevailing amongst civilized states and endorse all efforts by other parties to prosecute noncompliance as a war crime. Should the Ordenite Reich fail to comply with the third, fourth, or fifth provisions of this Ultimatum, the Monavian government shall construe such noncompliance as evidence that the Ordenite Reich intends to territorially, monetarily, and technologically aggrandize itself at the deliberate and uncompensated expense of foreign states in violation of their sovereignty and shall support all efforts to suppress unlawful aggression of this sort. The Monavian government further intends to construe noncompliance with the terms of this Ultimatum as a deliberate act of unfriendliness towards the Imperial Federation and its interests in the security of its allies in Greater Díenstad. In any instance, the Imperial Federation shall appropriately reciprocate the Ordenite Reich’s response to this Ultimatum.

The Monavian government hereby requests the favor of your reply within seventy-two hours from the moment you receive a copy of this Ultimatum.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, We have authorized the Great Seal of the Monavian Empire to be affixed to these presents and have hereunder subscribed our names.

GIVEN at our Court at the Royal Residence in Chalcedon on the sixth day of August in the year of Our Lord two thousand sixteen in the thirty-fourth year of our reign,

Declaration of War

Image


Pursuant to the authority vested in them by the Constitution of the Imperial Federation, the Senate and the Representative Assembly of the Imperial Parliament hereby enact

AN ACT

PROVIDING FOR THE PROSECUTION OF HOSTILITIES AGAINST A FOREIGN ADVERSARY


WHEREAS the Ordenite Government has intentionally and deliberately acted to injure the vital interests of the Imperial Federation and its nationals;

AND WHEREAS the Ordenite Government has intentionally and deliberately acted to injure the vital interests of the Imperial Federation’s treaty allies and their respective nationals;

AND WHEREAS the Ordenite Government has refused to comply with the terms set forth in the ultimatum dated August 6, 2016;

AND WHEREAS the Ordenite Government’s has rejection of the aforementioned ultimatum and aforementioned attacks on Monavian and allied vital interests mean that those interests are now objects of belligerent activity authorized by the Ordenite Reich;

IT IS ENACTED that the Imperial Parliament hereby legally recognizes that a state of hostilities exists between the Imperial Federation of the Monavian Empire and the Ordenite Reich and authorizes the Imperial Crown to employ the entirety of the Imperial Federation’s land, naval, and aerial forces to prosecute said hostilities to a speedy and successful termination.

IT IS FURTHER ENACTED that as a consequence of the Ordenite Reich’s ability to instantaneously execute further attacks against the vital interests of the Imperial Federation, its treaty allies, and their respective nationals, the Monavian Government hereby determines that the traditional courtesy of formally transmitting this Act to the Ordenite Government can enable the Ordenite Government to take measures calculated to render the provisions of this Act ineffective or otherwise obstruct its execution. This Act shall therefore enter into force immediately upon receiving a valid royal signature and shall not require publication to take effect.

IT IS FURTHER ENACTED that the Imperial Parliament further authorizes the Imperial Crown to call for and accept the services of any number of volunteers, not exceeding 500,000, who may offer their services in the armed forces or merchant marine.

IT IS FURTHER ENACTED that the Imperial Parliament further authorizes the Imperial Crown to call the militia of the several provinces into the actual service of the Imperial Federation to such extent as may be necessary to carry this act into effect.

Ambassador Natasha Hoban
Chancery of the Imperial Federation
Mokastana City
People’s Unified Federation of Mokastana

Your Excellency:

IAF Orbital Defense Command (ODC) just contacted my office to inform me that they have thwarted an attempted nuclear attack against the Commonwealth of Morrdh. Approximately one hour ago, Orbital Surveillance Command (OSC) detected a flight of Morridane space fighters flying over New Garrack in the direction of Castille and Mokastana. As these spacecraft passed within detection range of OSC’s nuclear surveillance satellites, the satellites detected radiation signatures consistent with highly-enriched fissile materials—in other words, OSC had reason to believe that these fighters were carrying nuclear payloads.

Following the last Fegosian Civil War, ODC established a policy of raising the readiness posture of its missile defense assets whenever an allied country falls into a state of civil war in which multiple sides have access to nuclear, chemical, biological, or radiological weapons. Consequently, ODC has kept its assets prepared to interdict attacks using weapons of mass destruction in the hope of preventing the Morridane coup from devolving into something far more catastrophic. When OSC observed the aforementioned spacecraft launch four nuclear missiles in the direction of a Morridane installation (believed to be the Waremera spaceport), ODC interdicted the missiles in orbit over Mokastana.

Following the success of their interdiction operation, ODC received word from OSC that some remnants of these missiles might survive atmospheric reentry and land on Mokan soil. While they have not confirmed that this is the case, the act of downing nuclear ordinance over Mokan soil might potentially have adverse effects on Mokan security interests. In an effort to prevent this incident from straining the Imperial Federation’s relationships with its Delian League and Fegosian Union allies, I hereby advise you to contact the Mokan government and request an immediate audience with President Rodriguez by whatever means are available to you.

Sincerely,

Theodore Zubrod
Minister of Defense

Ambassadorial Letter

His Excellency Elizabeth Franshaw
Foreign Minister of the People’s Unified Federation
Mokastana City, Mokostan
People’s Unified Federation of Mokastana

Your Excellency:

I write to you at this time to offer you some urgent news concerning a number of developments that have arisen within the Commonwealth of Morrdh over the last few hours. First, it deeply pleases me to inform you that the Monavian diplomatic mission in Mórrdun is unharmed and that they have regained the communications capabilities they lost during the initial wave of bombings. Second, our ambassador to the Commonwealth, Stefan Voltich, has just informed me that his mission is working to observe the political situation in Mórrdun and send me any intelligence they are able to gather from their position. Finally, and most importantly of all, Ambassador Voltich has informed me that he believes it is the Imperial Federation’s obligation as an ally of the PUF to assist your government with the border closure issue that has arisen earlier today.

In regard to this final point, Ambassador Voltich explained that the he considers the reopening of the border an objective of paramount importance as every day it remains closed will negatively impact the economies of both countries involved and the political relationship between them. He therefore intends to request a meeting with Viktor Cathmore or one of his representatives to negotiate a reopening of the Commonwealth’s border with the People’s Unified Federation. He conceded that he cannot guarantee that he will find Viktor Cathmore’s new régime amenable to his proposal, but he believes that the issue is too important to abandon without making an earnest attempt.

Having offered Your Excellency the foregoing information, permit me to renew my past assurances that Your Excellency’s government will continue to receive my office’s highest consideration.

Very faithfully yours,

Natasha Hoban, Ph.D.
Ambassador of the Imperial Federation

[Title]

PREAMBLE


Whereas Divine Providence has found it pleasing to dispose the exceedingly dread and puissant sovereigns Charles IX and Elizabeth VI and [entity] in favor of establishing a mutually beneficial intercourse between the Imperial Federation of the Monavian Empire and [names of other states] (hereafter referred to as the Contracting Parties), and whereas the Monavian Crown requested that this Treaty be created to establish and promote an amicable relationship between the Imperial Federation and the [other party] in the hope that any reciprocal advantages and mutual convenience arising therefrom will yield and secure perpetual harmony between their respective populations, the Monavian Crown and [entity] have appointed official plenipotentiaries and subordinate representatives for the purposes of drafting and negotiating this agreement.

§2. Nonaggression

Critical Reception of my Work and Ideas


✠ Writing

Lamoni: Milograd (aka Carta) has said that he wouldn’t mind if you’d like to help him in writing up an WA commendation for me, and all of the efforts that i’ve [sic] put into NS. I told him that you’re one of the best writers that i’ve [sic] seen on NS, and that you have the added bonus of having known me on NS for a long time.

Milograd: I just finished reading that post regarding evil that you and GWO collaborated on. Nice work as per usual.

Ralkovia: For me, I evolved into the role I hold today. As State of Monavia eloquently wrote, “For the longest time the world of NationStates was not much different from the real world. The anti-Semites ran rampant; they descended upon the innocent Jewry of the world with a terrible fury that was matched by few in its maliciousness and depravity. They plundered, pillaged, pilfered, and purloined whatever they wanted, killed some, enslaved others, and were careful to leave enough Jews alive to be tormented. The future of the Children of Abraham remained bleak during this long, dark period...and then Ralkovia turned the tables.”

Alexiandra: I’m currently reading through An Act of Faith, and I now feel an overwhelming desire to congratulate you for writing what I consider the greatest piece of stand-alone literature on NationStates. Although I haven’t read the entire text yet, the sunrise scene in the first chapter was so impressive that I had to stop reading and pen this telegram. Well done, my friend. Yours is a rare talent—it should be cherished above all else.

Jenrak: First off, I looked at the guide [to roleplaying genocide], and it looks good. If you’re good with it, I’ll add it to the guide index.

Ganos Lao: Reading your posts are a breath of fresh air when it comes to NS.

Futrellia: Your elegant, well thought, and careful writing Is the stuff of envy. I think my writing skills are good? Yours blow mine out of the water everytime. Bravo.

Futrellia: I almost to beg you to bring your presence to Elvarya. The Lord knows we need more writers like you.

Alexiandra: Superb work, as always.


✠ Constitution and Factbooks

Hioloa: Absolutely Brilliant, I commend you for taking the time and effort to write that out. You have Inspired me.

Ostronopolis: Not the best I've ever seen, but certainly the best on NS I’ve seen for a national constitution, and extremely good for someone (I’m presuming here) who is not a law student and or highly experienced in law. Kudos to you Monavia.

Grand Catalonia: Monavia, you have inspired me. I am going to use your constitution as my guide and inspiration for writing my own.

Greater Rhodes: As much as I may disagree with the details on how a nation’s government should be set up this constitution is beautifully done, it shows that you've put a lot of hard work into it. So well done, and a tip of the hat to you my friend.

Maraque: There is so much information, it’s quite impressive.


✠ Roleplaying and Miscellany

El Cuscatlan: Thank you. It is an honour to me that you appreciate my threads. I am also very thankful for you Rping with generally locked population, because to be honest nations with 25 billion population sound unrealistic to me and are hard to role-play, because of sheer number of people in them.

New Azura: Your signature is BOSS, mate.

Ganos Lao: I am always so humbled and envious of your creativity and attention to detail, Monavia. :3
