It has been brought to the attention of both myself and Viceroy Kellner that, in the last seventy-two hours, there has been a sizeable increase in regional tensions between the Confederation and the wider multiverse.
I have been on state-sanctioned leave since 01-01-2020, and I find it regrettable that I must now address issues during a time that could otherwise be spent with my family.
I call for cessation of all hostilities until the legitimacy of various parties' claims can be ascertained. The Imperial Empire would be prepared to host - or at least participate in - discussions with McMasterdonia, The Chuck, Castelia, United massachusetts, Ikea rike, and other delegations representing interested nations and regions.
I did intend to extend my respite until 01-03-2020, but doing so now no longer seems possible. I will return on 01-02-2020, by which time I hope all hysteria has abated and parties are willing to reasonably negotiate.
