Statement on the Kingdom of Amokolia

Post by Stellus Yastreb »

Image

Homersday, 10th Viviantiana
5625 ASC


The Ministry of the Exterior notes with some vexation that the Elwynnese Union has begun proceedings for the annexation of the recently re-established Kingdom of Amokolia.

This act represents, to the knowledge of this ministry, the first non-consensual (or at least, ambiguously consensual) annexation of the territory of a sovereign nation by a Shirerithian Imperial State without the prior blessing of the Imperial Government.

It is the resolved observation of this ministry that the Imperial Charter enshrines the right of Imperial States to determine their own borders. It is also this ministry's observation that the only provision for Imperial oversight of such affairs is when the claims of Shirerithian Imperial States are in conflict, whereupon the matter is decided by the Imperial Judex. On the matter of territorial disputes between Imperial States and sovereign nations, there is no provision for Imperial oversight or intervention except for routine observation of such other provisions as tangentially apply.

In this case, the only applicable provision of the Imperial Charter is the aforesaid right of Imperial States to determine their borders, and as such the annexation of Amokolia by the Elwynnese Union must be taken as legal, and moreover it must be defended by the Imperial government.

Despite the legality of the move, this ministry observes that the Elwynnese annexation was undertaken without prior consultation of this ministry or, to this ministry's knowledge, any organ of the Imperial government. While such consultations are not legally obliged, their absence presents difficulties not only to the Imperial Government, but to the other Imperial States in whose name they now find the annexation of a sovereign state being undertaken. This potentially invites retaliatory military or terrorist actions from Amokolia upon the entirety of Shireroth - despite the greater part of the latter's territory having no involvement in the affair, and being unprepared for its implications. For the sudden creation of such widespread vulnerability, the MiniEx must lodge formal protest against the Elwynnese Union on behalf of the Imperial Government and of the Imperial States whom it is the duty of Imperial government to serve.

As is popularly recognised, His Niftiness the Kaiser is a man of peace. As such, should any resistance to Elwynnese annexation be forthcoming from Amokolia, it is the fervent desire and expectation of this ministry that Elwynn's offer of negotiations is taken up seriously by all parties.

May the wrath of Tempus spare Benacia.

I am most grateful for the support of the Imperial Republic in this matter. It means much to Elwynn and to me.

And I personally wish Your Serenity well in the endeavour (lest we forget who tried to kill my father).

It is only my hope that next time the Elwynnese Union sees fit to undertake an act of pan-Shirerithian significance, it might have the courtesy to coordinate such activity with the Imperial government in advance.

My Lord Minister

I would like to ask and see if the Ministry of the Exterior would be helpful in securing Shirerithian/Elwynnese recognition of our claims on southern Amokolia, Automatica and Leng on the MCS map.

We should have let the people bored of Shireroth leave before we let them kill this country.

His Serenity will be pleased to take this ticket to the MCS, alongside his own cartographic study of the situation and such other particulars as the MCS require.
