External relations of Orange-Bourgogne

His Majesty's Department for External Affairs the Orange-Bourgognian equivalent of a department for foreign affairs. Its main purposes are conducting international relations between Orange-Bourgogne, other states and international organisations, protecting and promoting the interests of Orange-Bourgognians overseas, and much more.

The Department falls under the authority of the Crown, which is represented by the Secretary-of-State. The Secretary can appoint others to support him on a ministerial level.

External Relationships - Sections

Relation
This section shows the overall relationship between Orange-Bourgogne and the State in question. It has strong links to the gradations for policies and loyalty. It also shows how the government sees the other State as. Showing an interest in Orange-Bourgognian affairs may award the State a better grade. Exchanging diplomatic missions and maintaining good relations will too. One final note, the gradation "violent" encompasses two different further grades, namely "combatant" and "belligerent". The difference between them is that the former does not require a formal declaration of war, whereas the latter does.

Policies
This section shows the opinion of the governance of Orange-Bourgogne with regards to the main policies that the State in question adopted and follows. Needless to say, the protection of human rights play a significant role here. The better the grade, the more likely the State will have a good relation as well.

Loyalty
This section shows the trustworthiness of the State in question, as viewed by the government of Orange-Bourgogne. The better the grade, the more likely Orange-Bourgogne is willing to co-operate with that State. States that honour their agreements - especially if it makes their own position worse - will likely score high on this list. They are then be seen as reliable partners that can be worked with.

Trade
This section shows the trade relation between Orange-Bourgogne and the State in question. The grades vary from prohibited (no trade at all being allowed) to privileged (in which they are treated better than Orange-Bourgognian companies. This section encompasses both goods and services, but does leave out some economic sectors, for example, the military. If the grade is "Standard" this means that a import/export tariff of 10 per cent will be imposed on the good/service to be traded, however, no further conditions will apply.

Safety
This section shows how safe the government of Orange-Bourgogne thinks the State in question is. It is not related to the travel grade. Though, travel warnings are given based on this section.

Travel
This section shows if there are any restrictions for people to travel from one State to Orange-Bourgogne and vise versa. The difference between an open border and an half-open border, is that under an half-open border there are still checks at the border most of the times, while individuals do not need special documentation to pass the border.

Opinion
This section shows what the ordinary Orange-Bourgognian thinks of the State in question. Beware: many views are based on stereotypes and are not necessarily based on facts. The government does not base its opinion of a State on this section. The government's opinion is calculated in the relation section.

External Relationships - Breakdown
Please note that the nations are listed in no particular order.

The United Kingdom of Orange-Bourgogne
Orange-Bourgogne

Overview

Relation: Excellent
Policies: Enshrined
Loyalty: Devoted
Trade: Competitive
Safety: Secure
Travel: Open borders
Opinion: Beloved

The government of Orange-Bourgogne sees itself as a formidable player on the global stage. It recognises that the status of superpower has been lost, but aspires to obtain it once again. In order to achieve that goal, the government has made some key policies which are outlined below:

- First, Orange-Bourgogne should be a prominent player in various international organisations. That way we can influence others and set examples. The government delivered on this by co-founding various such organisations, like the League of Nations and the International Military Alliance.

- Second, Orange-Bourgogne should seek trade agreements with states across the planet. As a leading trade partner in Europe, we can help other nations prosper. The government also adopted a policy to develop other nations which have a hard time doing so by themselves, by giving out loans.

- Third but not least, Orange-Bourgogne should upkeep human rights. Orange-Bourgogne does this in party by constantly stressing that violence should not be the answer nations seek. This policy was already adopted centuries ago, and resulted in neutrality during both World Wars. Another part of this policy, is to stress on international conferences and other meetings that human rights must be respected by other states, and that certain consequences must follow if they are not taken into consideration.

The Most Serene Principality of Monaco-Monte Carlo
Monaco-Monte Carlo

Overview

Relation: Excellent
Policies: Cherished
Loyalty: Allegiant
Trade: Competitive
Safety: Secure
Travel: Open borders
Opinion: Adored

The United Kingdom views Monaco-Monte Carlo as one of their most reliant allies; it sees them as a companion. The current sovereigns of these states are married to each other. Both nations have a rich history with an extended culture.

The ordinary Orange-Bourgognian loves to spend their holidays at this tiny principality, while the extremely rich enjoy it for their "mild tax climate". It was agreed upon that, upon the death of either sovereign, their heir would automatically become the sovereign of both nations, and the principality would fully integrate in the constitutional structure that is the United Kingdom of Orange-Bourgogne.

The United Emirates of Diadochi
Diadochi

Overview

Relation: Cordial
Policies: Respected
Loyalty: Committed
Trade: Preferred
Safety: Stable
Travel: Permitted
Opinion: Favoured

The United Kingdom views Diadochi as a relatively new friendly nation to co-operate with. The two nations also share some historic and cultural ties, but not as many as, say, European nations.

After a recent meeting between the Prime Minister and a delegation from Diadochi, several agreements were made. This gave reason to update several statuses in a positive manner. The government looks forward to further develop the relationship with this nation, and hopes that it will prove to be a long-standing ally.

The Commonwealth of the Intermarium Union
Intermarium union

Overview

Relation: Cordial
Policies: Respected
Loyalty: Committed
Trade: Encouraged
Safety: Safe
Travel: Permitted
Opinion: Favoured

Relations between the Intermarium Union and Orange-Bourgogne are relatively young, yet they are very promising if properly observed. Recently, a formal non-aggression pact has been concluded. There was also an offer made to join the to-be-established CTC, which has been taken into consideration. Student exchange programmes will be set up in the near future amongst leading colleges.

The Imperial Federation of Infiny
Infiny

Overview

Relation: Distinguished
Policies: Revered
Loyalty: Devoted
Trade: Promoted
Safety: Precarious
Travel: Permitted
Opinion: Cherished

The Imperial Federation is one of the closest and longest-standing allies of the United Kingdom. The relations between the respective administrations are considered to be excellent. This in part, is the result of the complicated yet tight historical and cultural ties between the countries.

After a recent eruption of political violence in the Imperial Federation, the United Kingdom participated in a peace mission there, stabilising the communities to the best of their abilities. HRH Prince Edmund also participated in this operation, which resulted in a strong royal connection with the Federation.

The Socialist Republic of Furstia
Furstia

Overview

Relation: Cordial
Policies: Supported
Loyalty: Committed
Trade: Standard
Safety: Safe
Travel: Permitted
Opinion: Favoured

The Socialist republic and the United Kingdom have exchanged diplomatic missions just recently. However, both current administrations share many ideological similarities and will presumably adopt similar polices.

The United Kingdom is committed to bring the plant of diplomacy to grow beautiful fruits in the not-too-distant future, and is confident that our socliast allies will be equally committed to the same cause.

This page contains information concerning the international relations between Orange-Bourgogne and other states. For diplomatic missions from and towards Orange-Bourgogne, see:

For an overview of relations, see foreign relations.

The diplomatic relations of the United Kingdom of Orange-Bourgogne are conducted by His Majesty's Office for International and Diplomatic Affairs, which is less formally known as HM's Diplomatic Corps. The Diplomatic Corps is headed by the Master of the Diplomatic Corps, though various other departments and agencies play a role in various contexts as well.

HM's Diplomatic Corps is responsible for all diplomatic missions of Orange-Bourgogne, which means that they are responsible for the officials of missions to foreign nations as well as those who are accredited to an international organisation.

Sovereignty disputes
Disputes regarding the sovereignty of a nation. When listed here, (a part of) the nation is not officially recognised (yet) by HM's Government.

  • Monaco-Monte Carlo - this Principality is not recognised as a sovereign nation as it agreed in a recent referendum to join Orange-Bourgogne.

Diplomatic missions
Diplomatic missions are delegations send to a foreign nation or an international organisation in order to represent the sending party.

Sorts of diplomatic missions:
Diplomatic missions can be sent and received in many forms. Orange-Bourgogne recognises four general forms of diplomatic missions.

High Commissions are the highest diplomatic missions. They are exchanged between two sovereign heads of state. The other state must be a (constitutional) monarchy. The heads of these missions are High Commissioners, and are accredited personally by the Monarch to the official Court of the receiving state.

Embassies are the highest ordinary diplomatic missions. They are sent on behalf of a government rather than the person of the Sovereign. The heads of these missions are Ambassadors (at large) and represent the full nation from or to Orange-Bourgogne.

The third-ranking mission is that of a Consulate. This is the lowest form of diplomatic representation. It is used to co-exist alongside an Embassy, though it may be accredited to an Embassy in another nation. Heads are known as Consuls, and they perform diplomatic services in a particular region of a nation, rather than in the whole nation they are sent to.

Finally, there are extraordinary missions these are missions who are not sent to or received by states, but, for example, international organisations. The heads of these missions rank as an Ambassador (at large), even though their title may be something else, such as the popular Chief of Mission.
