Svalbardian Foreign Affairs Report

-

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, working in tandem with the Consul Adstutia, Samantha Hartega, and Svalbardian Military Intelligence Section 3, have compiled a report on Polar Svalbard's current situation in regards to foreign affairs. Each country, agreement, and crisis has been taken into account and is put in here for use by all three sections that worked on this.

The First part, shown below, is the current status of Svalbardian diplomatic agreements, alliances, and embassies. Compiled first as it was the quickest to find and asses, it is also listed first as it shows how and why Polar Svalbard should, and will most likely act towards a certain country.

Nation

Stance

Notes on Nation

Agadar

Neutral

A stable monarchy in a strategic place at the South-Western tip of Gael allows Agadar to be talked about within the Consul Adstutia's office, although a lack of cooperation between Polar Svalbard and Agadar has left this nation as a neutral entity.

Ainslie

Wary

Democratic leanings and a strong economy tied with a strategic location at the South-Eastern tip of Gael makes this nation known in the Foreign Affairs Ministry. Along with that the nation has been quite involved in numerous international agencies.

Alteran Republics

Interested

As an economically strong nation, close to Polar Svalbard and in a Strategic Position on the Northern tip of Argus, the Alteran Republics have a favored look in Polar Svalbard. Already with economic ties it is likely that Polar Svalbard will pursue closer relations with the nation in the future.

Archvenland

Neutral

Lack of Data and Lack of international concern has left this nation a footnote in Svalbardian policies and interactions with the International Community. Although given its proximity to Polar Svalbard this is subject to change.

Aruia

Neutral

Polar Svalbard has little in the way of diplomatic cooperation with Aruia although that is mostly due to its distance as a small nation in Gael. Many Svalbardians go to Aruia on vacations and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has stated that Polar Svalbard has no ill will towards the nation.

Athara Magarat

Cold

Polar Svalbard sees Athara Magarat as a threat to regional stability. Its actions in the League, the Arun Valley Protocol, its inability to handle SHOCK and the possibility that it may actually assist it; are all negative views on Athara Magarat. Along with that it is assumed that the nation's leadership is incompetent.

Avalornia

Neutral

Avalornia is a rather run of the mill nation located in the Mesder. It is neither too large, nor to small, and it has little in the way of international interactions. The only thing of particular note is its ties to Belle Ilse En Terre.

Balnik

Cold

Balnik is an openly Fascist nation and could possibly destabilize parts of the region. Polar Svalbard is worried about the possibility of it striking out against its neighbors, although the distance between the two nations have made Balnik not a Svalbardian priority.

Belle ilse en terre

Cold

Interactions in the League and what headlines come out of the nation have proved to Polar Svalbard that this is a nation stuck in the past and is a possible destabilizing threat in the Mesder. Along with that its government appears to be in turmoil and it has had a recent conflict with Dormill and Sturia.

Bravo rio

Neutral

Bravo Rio is a small, very out of the way nation. As such it is unlikely that Polar Svalbard will involve itself with Bravo Rio very much.

Caber

Neutral

Caber is a large nation near Polar Svalbard although it is quite inactive in the international sphere. Likely due to more Isolationist Policies.

Corindia

Ally

As a fellow Mesder Sea Treaty Organization member, Corndia and Polar Svalbard are allies. Cooperation on many levels occurs and will continue to occur.

Coshoiria

Neutral

Coshoiria is an average sized nation situated on Argus. Little interaction has taken place between Polar Svalbard and this nation although the country seems to be quite unstable and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs would not recommend travelling there.

Covonant

Wary

Covonant, as a nation of its size, holds a large amount of sway in a number of organizations that Polar Svalbard is not a part of and may even have competing interests with. Recently the two governments have had less than friendly interactions, although overall Polar Svalbard would not actively go against this nation.

Creek islands

Neutral

The Creek Islands is a small nation located in the Southern Seas. Polar Svalbard has little interactions with the nation, nor does it need to have interactions with the nation.

Definus

Neutral

Lack of Data and Lack of international concern has left this nation a footnote in Svalbardian policies and interactions with the International Community.

Deutsche savanne reich

Cold

Polar Svalbard does not enjoy the fact that there are still countries who follow the Nazi ideology. Polar Svalbard views it as a possible destabilizing force and will keep eyes on this nation, although as long as the nation does not step too far out of line the Svalbardian government sees no reason to directly oppose it.

Domanania

Neutral

Tensions between Polar Svalbard and Domanania have calmed down in the past two years and as such Polar Svalbard does not see the nation as a threat. Overall the nation seems content to just do business with the world and has for the most part sat on the sidelines of international affairs for some time.

Dormill and Stiura

Wary

The Svalbardian government is concerned with what Dormill and Stiura is doing in the region. This was especially amped by the recent conflict with Belle Ilse En Terre, which shows that the nation believes it has sway in the Mesder. Along with that the nation has a history fraught with warmongering and intruding into places they do not belong. Polar Svalbard would prefer that Dormill and Stiura keeps to itself in its corner of Gael.

Eurania

Cold

IW2 did not end long ago and even if Eurania claims to no longer be communistic they still had a large hand in starting a war which killed many people on the MSTO side. Its recent instabilities, culminating in a termination of CU membership confirms the Svalbardian thought that it is still an unstable nation.

Habertland

Neutral

Messs

Jagellion

Neutral

It was not long ago that Jagellion was a Svalbardian colonial possession. Tensions between Polar Svalbard and the new nation linger, but it is likely that the nations may cooperate in the future.

Keomora

Wary

There is lingering tension between Polar Svalbard and Keomora due to being in two different military organizations that are in close proximity to each other; along with that the bad blood from the Svalbardian ownership of Keomora in the 19th century is not fully dissipated. There is a level of cooperation between the nations though that the nations can work together.

Kobratia

Neutral

Kobratia is a sizable nation in close proximity to Polar Svalbard, which establishes that Polar Svalbard will keep an eye on the nation. As of yet though there has been little interactions between the governments.

Kosura-hanua

Neutral

As always Kosura-Hanua is the definition of an Isolationist nation. Many Oligarchs have wasted their time trying to establish strong business connections to the nation.

Linaviar

Neutral

While a rather unstable nation, Polar Svalbard sees Linaviar as no threat to its surrounding area. Along with that their voices no longer ring as loud on the International Stage.

Malagwi

Interested

Malagwi is a small nation off the coast of Argus that has ties to the Cooperative Union. Overall interactions between the nation and Polar Svalbard have been purely economic, although Polar Svalbard sees that the nation is friendly in its interactions with others and is likely to be involved with the nation in the future.

Menna shuli

Enthusiastic

The connection between many Svalbardian Oligarchs and Mennan Princes is quite strong and have permeated into Svalbardian interactions with that nation on a governmental level. This has led to what can be called a sort of informal alliance as Polar Svalbard would come to Menna Shuli's aid if something were to happen to it. The fact that many Svalbardian buisnesses have made use of the Mennan workforce over the years has been a large factor into this feeling.

Merhion

Neutral

Lack of Data and Lack of international concern has left this nation a footnote in Svalbardian policies and interactions with the International Community.

Michigonia

Neutral

Michigonia largely keeps to itself in its corner of Gael and as such there have been little in the way of interactions between it and Polar Svalbard. What little interactions there are are likely purely economic.

Miklania

Ally

The Svalbardian-Miklanian alliance might be the strongest of its kind in the Isles. The nations have been allies since the Second Miklanian Independence War, and has morphed into the Mesder Sea Treaty Organization. If either nation is attacked there would likely be no hesitation in the other coming to its aid.

Negarakita

Neutral

Negarakita is a small yet stable nation off the coast of Gael. Its only notable features are its economy which has led it into the CU. Polar Svalbard has seen little reason to interact with the nation, and this is unlikely to change in the coming future.

Nightvvalle

Neutral

Lack of Data and Lack of international concern has left this nation a footnote in Svalbardian policies and interactions with the International Community.

Noronica

Interested

Noronica is a nation near Gael that is involved in a number of international organizations including the CU, C6, G4, the CFN, etc. Due to this spread of attention Polar Svalbard can not truly pin down where Noronica is with Polar Svalbard. It is in some organizations counter to Svalbardian goals and some with Polar Svalbard. Along with that it has not really done any overt actions against Polar Svalbard. Polar Svalbard did support their invasion of Arvan.

Norstham

Ally

As a fellow member in the MSTO, Norstham enjoys good relations with Polar Svalbard.

Orsandia

Neutral

Orsandia is an average sized nation located in Gael. In terms of international organziations the only one of note is the Eterna-Argean Friendship accords, of which Polar Svalbard is also a part of. The country is heavily invested in sports.

Ostehaar

Enthusiastic

Polar Svalbard and Ostehaar have a rather informal alliance, although they are quite willing to assist each other, especially in terms of intelligence community cooperation. The nation of Ostehaar has also worked with the MSTO on a number of things. Polar Svalbard and Ostehaar are also a part of a number of international organizations together. A small side note is that there is a large number of Svalbardian women who have gone to Ostehaar to get married and live there.

Oturia

Neutral

Oturia is an average sized nation located in Argus. It, as of yet, has had minimal actions in the foreign relations sphere. So far interactions between it and Polar Svalbard have been purely economic.

Samudera

Neutral

Samudera is an average nation in Gael with a surprising bit of influence there. Even with that though, interactions between it and Polar Svalbard have been rather minimal.

San Jimenez

Wary

San Montagna

Wary

San Montagna has a new government after a war deposed its old fascist government. It is still in the rebuilding stages and is located next to a major Svalbardian ally. As such the Svalbardian government is wary and will be watching the nation's progression closely.

Talvistova

Neutral

Talvistova is an average sized nation in the Eterna Sea. It has had little interaction with Polar Svalbard.

Tectonix

Neutral

Tectonix is a major leader in the Cooperative Union. Other than economic interaction though, Polar Svalbard and Tectonix have done little together or against one another.

Neutral

Vancouvia

Friendly

Vancouvia has for sometime been a Svalbardian friend, especially in the CFN. While recent policy choices of Vancouvia has been concerning there is no reason they should not be considered a friend.

Vucari

Cold

Polar Svalbard and communism does not go together, especially after the recent IW2. Polar Svalbard will be keeping a close eye on this nation.

Wellsia

Interested

Xrevaro

Wary

While Polar Svalbard would like to be on positive terms with the nation and has cooperated with them in the past, the nation is extremely unstable. Along with that involvement with them has burned Polar Svalbard in regards to the Keverai papers.

Yorrkon

Interested

Yorrkon is an average sized nation in the Eterna Sea. Due to its proximity to possible Svalbardian enemies Polar Svalbard is likely to increase interactions with this nation.
