The Kilrathi ships are coming through the jump point one at a time!
Dear Prime Minister Ysar,
I am glad to grant this request by Lady Zaharra. We were not previously aware that the Lady has personal memories of places within our territory, but then again our visit to Loftegen and the talks we had with her demonstrated that there is much we don't know: about her and maybe about ourselves and our history.
Should the Lady so desire, there is a suite for her at the Guesthouse of the Imperium ready at any time.
If possible, we would ask for the Lady to provide us with a list of places she intends to visit and notification at least 24 hours in advance before she arrives, so that we can assure that she can visit these places undisturbed.
Imperator Konsul Leo I. of the Leonistisches Imperium
The Imperialer Senat, the upper house of parliament in Leonism, has passed a motion to promote a city twinning programme with cities all over Lazarus. The idea is to promote international friendship and cultural exchange. A city can have several "twins" from different countries. Ideally, the twins should be roughly similarly sized.
Several cities have already announced their intention to seek twinning agreements with other cities in Lazarus:
Leestcheck - the capital, a modern, purpose built and green city of 1.5 million inhabitants. Home to many students, scientists, bureaucrats, soldiers and politicians.
Blaumeisehaven - the maritime metropolis and gateway to the world. 25 million inhabitants. Has both the largest port and largest airport of Leonism. A centre of commerce, but also a huge naval base and home to two universities of great importance.
Reichenbach - mid-sized city dominated by its manufacturing industry and one of the most important army bases in West Leonism. 600,000 inhabitants.
Tannenberg - a rather remote town in East Leonism, dominated by agriculture. 70.000 inhabitants. Stunning views of the nearby Tannenberge mountains. The secretive Gebiet 42 weapons test area is nearby.
Werderhafe - a run-down coastal city of 120.000 inhabitants, near Blaumeisehaven. Fishing and tourism dominate the local economy.
More cities are expected to follow. Any foreign city interested in a twinning arrangement with Imperial cities should inquire for help at the Aussenministerium, who will assist in establishing contact with suitable candidate cities.
OOC: Regarding above post: the practice of having "twin cities" or "sister cities" is fairly widespread here in Europe. In Germany almost any city, no matter how large or small, has twins, most often with French and Polish cities. My hometown was twinned with a Latvian district.
In case you never heard about the concept, I recommend a read of this wikipedia article:
I'm not sure how that would work though. Just thought it was a new idea that I haven't seen on RP maps before.
On the calendar of holidays for the Church of Tubbius, today is known as a Super Sunday; it is one of those days when all Tubbians wear as little as possible and eat as much as possible. Forgoing His usual multilayered yellow robes and miter, The Baggy Belly wears just a matching lavender Tummy Shade, Tubbra, Tummy Sling, socks, and shoes to church. These garments are all lightweight, and the Tummy Shade and Tummy Sling allow for plenty of room for the middle to swell out during the big, long feast that goes for the entire service.
Of course, in the interest of promoting safety in this newly, permanently snowy Piggy Cliff, His Rotundity couldn't very well toddle around wearing much less in public. Although He and Mrs. Tubbius have an innate, magical warmth due to the Tubbius Magic, Their many descendants do not.
It could work. There could be a group of nomads (or a few) who go around. Countries could have all sorts of reactions. Shoot them, imprison them, just turn them away, let them settle in various places etc. They could go to white countries and be abused. That could have nations respond to human rights abuses or something.
This actually reminds me of a story from my youth, where a farmer friend of my father's, who styled himself the Mayor of Bristol (a town that had barely existed, even in legend) Iowa, was invited to Bristol, in the U.K, and subsequently hosted that city's mayor at his house.

After the revival many new laws came in to place to keep The Empire of Chenzoizia alive, some loved by the people and others feared by people who were immigrants to Sardessa now permanent residents of Chenzoizia.

The FRCP is a volatile political entity, born feebly from the concessions after years of anarchy and civil war between Cossack hosts, then solidified into a nation by the iron hands of its leaders. The government bans anything if it means more citizens will be able to be monitored and spends exorbitant amounts of money into its stifling command economy and belligerent military policies. Many of its citizens have simply given up hope, and instead, get caught up in the patriotism as a way to escape, not knowing anything better.

Significantly Sized Bricks (Theocracy of Bricks)
Foundry of Bricks
Snoodum, formerly known as Galgaria was formally founded in 47 AFD (After Founder's Death). This sparked the long and bloody history of Galgaria, renamed after the current leader, God-Emperor Snudgeskooge. Many view the country as a hostile, corrupt cesspit of oppression and squalor. This of course is blasphemy!
Snoodum has prospered with every citizen living underground in mega-cities. Some may view the state's measures of control as excessive though this is purely so it can run and continue to be finely tuned to the nth degree so that life runs smoothly. The military control the surface cities, preserved, and in some places, rebuilt to display Snoodum's historic roots. Military installations dot the country and only those given special permits are allowed to the surface.

Tor Otto City
Your Imaginary Friend (Imaginary)
Imaginary is a dilapidated seashore country that likes to keep to itself, choosing to fish and farm in isolation rather than trading with other nations in Lazarus. This may be why the place is called Imaginary, for many are not even aware of its existence up in the far north-western reaches of the region.
