Occitania Regional Message Board
Looking at Messini's situation from their nation page, in the immediate future I would recommend they institute higher income tax and maybe some tariffs, as small measures to help them while we work out the details of the arranged loan. All three of their major exports depend heavily on natural resources, and so they should really be making a strong profit from that as their supply of metals, lumber and Uranium should diminish rapidly with demand. Hopefully we can support them building up alternative industries for the long term. As they're a small nation and our region has many large ones, what we can afford to give should go a long way.
Oh, I see that Moscow and The City of Saint Petersburg has already offered to cover the loan. So I guess, that is settled anyway.
To Messini: Be careful of the deals you make.
Which MIM's are still unaccounted for? I think we had 13.
This was the last roster that voted.
2.) Albensburg =
3.) Deux-Sevres =
4.) Greater Catalpha* =
5.) Haldasia =
7.) Madeira and The Azores =
8.) Moscow and The City of Saint Petersburg =
9.) Narbonne Sur Le Mer =
10.) Porto Maurizio* =
11.) Saarland and The East Frisian Islands =
12.) Schwabenreich* =
13.) Royal Germanic Confederation =
14.) Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon =
To Messini: Welcome to Occitania. I second Samegrelo's warning!
So we need a new MIM to make the Imperial Matrix vote legitimate, otherwise we could have an even vote.
In the past, we have passed votes with an even number of MIM. We'd have to pass at least one other vote to allow another nation to join the Imperial Matrix. But we still must have an odd number to prevent ties. So, who wants to run for the next position?
I have wanted to remain neutral but will put my name forth for membership into the Imperial Matrix. I this will keeep me from being bored and ceasing to excist!
To Northern Gothica: Glad to see a Germanic member interested in the Imperial Matrix!
To Messini: I feel you have acted to quickly and not weighed your options with future offers. Now you will have the Russian navy in your harbor.
