Keeping rightful royalty in place and having a charter of rights, those two things aren't mutually exclusive. Just look at Sardinia-Piedmont.

We feel quite apart from such a sentiment. We were a Republic once before, and we should be so again. A monarchy may work for other nations, but it did not work for us. We were governed quite poorly, and we, as Dutch citizens are simply taking our rights to govern as we had once before back. As I have made clear, we do not wish to make a quarrel with you or any other nation of Europe. In the end we desire what we have always desired: Trade and peaceful relations.

The Dutch Republic:

- The Dutch Republic has no desire to quarrel with our neighbors in Europe. We wish to send envoys to negotiate our recognition to the great powers, and we will look to begin negotiations with the Kingdom of Great Britain for the return of William V. We will also be sending envoys to the rest of the continental nations to negotiate treaties of trade and friendship. We have no quarrel with nations that desire to do business with us.

- The office of Stadtholder shall only be a temporary measure to govern the country. The Dutch Republic is embracing the the idea of republicanism. We will be writing a new constitution that will set out the rights of Dutch citizens. To that end, we will be holding elections to the first Dutch Parliament to create a constitutional framework. Voting will be open to ALL Dutch citizens (men and women) who are over the age of 20.

- The Dutch Republic will look to expand in the East Indies and in New Holland where possible, but we will not bankrupt our nation to do so. Our primary goal at this present time is stability in Europe and expansion where feasible.

I'd be glad to take on the Dutch Republican government Wink

I'll be honest, I don't know enough about/have enough interest in Spain to take it on. I might consider the Dutch or someone else though?

January 13-14
Charles Kennedy campaigns in Scotland, meeting with voters and addressing their concerns on local issues. Kennedy denies the idea that Clegg is a traitor and gives a strong defense for remaining united with England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, but also advocating increased devolved powers to the Scottish Parliament.

January 15-17
Charles Kennedy campaigns in Southwest England, and makes a speech in Plymouth on the economy, discussing LibDem economic proposals, and reminding the attendees that the new voting system makes sure that their voices will be heard.

January 18-19
Kennedy and Vince Cable barnstorm in London, talking about the Lib Dem environmental proposals.

Bob Casey was the only one who managed to accomplish anything decent while maintaining his popularity, so he was certainly the best of this group. I have a soft spot for Mark Schweiker though, even if he was a Republican.

Tom Corbett is undoubtedly the worst Governor of my lifetime.

If you have room for a Lib Dem, I'll play as the late, great Charles Kennedy...

CANADA

- In order to ease the divisions in the party over the decision to move to Ranked Choice voting, I'll hold private meetings with opponents to bring them around to the idea by providing some reasonable political favors. The government will also launch a nationwide campaign to help educate voters on the changes before the next election.

- We will continue to welcome Americans who wish to become Canadian citizens. We will also launch a program to encourage (but not force) them to settle in underpopulated areas to stimulate local economies that are struggling.

- Immediately begin preparing to debate O'Leary when he takes a seat. Use every possible opportunity to use his own words on programs like Dragon's Den and Shark Tank against him. Portray him as harsh, self-centered, and arrogant... Tie his personality to Donald Trump, and in Quebec, strongly play up the fact that he cannot speak French.

- Use the revenue from marijuana legalization to fund infrastructure programs where possible. Appear in the media frequently to bring attention to the new sources of revenue for the government, which are in turn funding improvements across Canada.

- I've instructed the Minister of Foreign Affairs to offer to mediate a peaceful resolution to the current tensions between Pakistan and India.

As to the second resolution, Canada feels much the same way as Germany. We would support a change to the rules that abolished permanent seats and is instead replaced by a ballot. Until such time, Canada will not support adding additional seats to the SC.

The France-Canada Fair Trade Agreement


Quote
The Fifth French Republic and Commonwealth of Canada hereby agree to freely trade goods and allow extensive rights of their respective nations for use of both dockyards and airports, under the following conditions:

1) Strong environmental protections. We have no desire to contribute to climate change.

2) Strong workers' rights protections. The average worker has been hit hard by the trade missteps of the past. It will not happen again.

3) Ban on corporate oversight of the Agreement. Massive corporations often put profit before anything else. This must not be allowed to continue.

4) All deals between private companies of both nations must be approved by the governments of both nations. Related to point three.

5) An independent commission consisting of representatives from both nations will be appointed to oversee the regulations of the Agreement. To ensure impartiality, all members must be extensively vetted former government officials.

x President Emmanuel Macron
x Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

From The Office Of The Prime Minister of Canada:

- My government will introduce legislation that will legalize, tax, and regulate the consumption of marijuana throughout Canada's provinces and territories.

- My government will also introduce legislation that will bring about $60 Billion in infrastructure improvements. This is of primary objective for my government as it will both employ Canadians from every province and territory, but also it will fix this nation's aging infrastructure.

- As Prime Minister, I will continue to advocate for electoral reform. My goal is to introduce legislation that will change Canada's method of election from FPTP to Ranked Choice by the time of the next general election.

- Obviously, it is not the policy of the Canadian government to comment on the elections of the United States. We want to continue our close relationship with the United States, and I will do my best to work with President Trump. However, we welcome Americans who wish to make Canada their new permanent home. We believe immigration to be a source of strength for Canada, and we will continue our policy of being an open and welcoming society toward any Americans who may wish to reside here instead.

Well, what's left? Canada? Australia? I'd like to pick up a nation whose internal politics I'm familiar with. Would either of those work?

Ideally this would be ending during the weekend, but several players still need to send their orders.
Sad I missed out on this, but maybe the next round.

I miss playing with yinz guys. Maybe next round you can save me a spot?

Cynic! So good to see you here, and as a GM I certainly miss seeing you play. You're certainly welcome to join at any moment if you want.

Well, depending on what's available, I might like to try Canada or maybe something more random like New Zealand...
