Foreign Relations and Ambassadors


The Western Isles is a democratic region, with a constitution and elected executive officers. While the Secretary of Recruitment is responsible for recruiting and attracting new members to the region, the President is the one in-charge of managing embassies and foreign policy matters.


This administration shall continue TWI's longtime policy of accepting almost all embassy requests. We see embassies as a first step on the path to good relations, rather than a declaration that those relations already exist. For more information on this policy, read Vancouvia's dispatch on foreign affairs.

We reserve the right to withdraw or not accept embassies with any region, but this is rare and will likely only happen in instances where mutual respect is not provided or the region goes against the central tenets established in our constitution. TWI is an RP region - we do not perform, nor condone, raids against other regions.

Ambassadors will be appointed by the President to regions which will suggest or accept an exchange of ambassadors. Four ambassadors currently serve:




Dormill and Stiura

Union of Confederate Regions
10000 islands



New Western Atlantic


Polar Svalbard

Movement Between Regions

TWI strives to be the best option for players who are interested in role-play, nation-building, regional government, and a vibrant community. Any player, no matter their nation's NS stats or their own personal characteristics, may join. Everyone in TWI is offered equal status and treatment, access to all regional role-plays, and the ability to challenge officers for their office.

For a few exceptions, see Presidential Executive Orders 3 and 7.

Contact Details and Activity Schedule

If you have any questions, comments, tips, or concerns - feel free to telegram me or any of the officers. Alternatively, you can tag me in an RMB post or mention me on the regional Discord.

I tend to be online around 22:00-01:00 on my local time (which corresponds to 20:00-23:00 UTC or 15:00-18:00 EST) on most weekdays. During the weekend I'll probably be around more. I never ignore TGs, tags, and mentions, so if I haven't responded for over 2-3 days, it means I've probably missed it and it would be fair to remind me.

In the spirit of Presidential Executive Order 8, I plan to publish at least a monthly report on government activity. It would be published around the end of each month.
