The flight from Australia to Brazil was cheap and the flight from Brazil to Germany is a bare bones fare. This was the cheapest way.

Hildred will pay for any expenses associated with the transfer to Germany; he just doesnít want his brother anywhere loose in the world, and especially not in the hands of the Orsonians (heíd probably get lynched by a band of Tōgatu for being a Castiagne)

I donít wanna see that happen with anyone. He was originally put on a flight to Frankfurt. However, his current monitors are trying to track him down since the flight stopped in Berlin for a transfer and they havenít been able to find him since.

Alright, I can work with this.

Iím sure he will be found, I just donít know how long it will take German authorities to find him and what cost. Will you he gone for years and go globe trotting or found instantly?

Good morning everybody! I woke up to 92 unread RMB posts today, which has to be a record. I knew something must have gone done (no surprise that it was in Orson), though I'm happy it was resolved peacefully.

The Wagains operated a small special interests section in the Timmian embassy for many years, so the Cybusians could fairly easily move into those premises in order to have a diplomatic presence in Ravenwood. Our standalone embassy is still under construction, but given the precarious security environment, it would likely also be a fortress, not quite as large as the Timmian compound but likely located just around the corner, to create a kind of 'Green Zone' where security perimeters overlap and complement each other. An underground tunnel would allow embassy staff to evacuate to the Timmian compound in a pinch, or vice versa, if the gates were ever breached. With how regular embassy threats have become, there would undoubtedly be contingency plan after contingency plan in place, and it would not surprise me at all to learn that the Timmies had a special forces unit prepped and ready to go for this very purpose.

OOCly, I seem to remember that Ravenwood is loosely based off of Canberra, Australia, which would mean there is a large lake dividing the city in half. I could see the 'embassy district' (Formosans, Timmies, Lucijans, and us so far) being located on one of the peninsulas of this lake, so there is only one (narrow) path of approach, which can easily be sealed off. Within this enclosure, there would be sufficient power, wastewater, housing, retail, etc to effectively allow for a self-contained community. Even though Ravenwood is one of the most liberal cities in Orson, where foreigners can move about freely, the recent episode demonstrates that Orsonians simply cannot be trusted to follow even the most sacrosanct of diplomatic protections (ironically, they are outraged when other countries lapse protocol, as I recall the Orsonians being quite incensed by the death of Acdel Wells while in Wagain custody).

In Santa Catalina, the case brought against the Federation has reached the Wagain Supreme Court, which has sided narrowly with the Federation. The court argues that, under the principle of odious debt, any contracts which were entered into with a despotic and widely sanctioned regime are the responsibility of the regime itself, and not debts which can be inherited by the state. This is a significant ruling with little precedence in international law, which is meant to warn creditors about investing in "instruments of repression," and provide an incentive to lend only for purposes that are transparent and of public benefit. It is perhaps less surprising that this ruling happened in Wagondia, which has a long history of foreign indebtedness as a confederation of former colonies ó the empire's development was considerably disrupted in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries by the assumption of the burden of debt incurred by the Spanish and Portuguese empires, and for reparation payments made to foreigners in exchange for seized property and the emancipation of slaves. In some cases, such as that of the Republic of Haiti (1804-1874), recognition by former colonial states came at a steep price, one which would not be fully paid off until the 1940s. Such payments formed a substantial part of Wagondia's budget well into the twentieth century.

Under this ruling, the debt is not cancelled, it is just held to be the responsibility of the Aturoist regime rather than the current government. The Timmies are legally free to seize the assets of the outgoing regime in lieu of payment, which theoretically could encompass any personal savings of imperial leaders stashed in Wagondia, in addition to property, vehicles, shell corporations, etc.

Wow, didn't realize that many posts were made, though there was a ton of activity last night.

This is a very interesting ruling from the Wagain Supreme Court, which would no doubt be celebrated by millions of Orsonians. This is definitely a landmark case that could make creditors think twice before lending to authoritarian regimes again.

And I cannot blame any embassy in Orson for taking these precautions. Things could become violent at the drop of a hat- one moment Ravenwood is peaceful, and the next it's being bombarded by some rebellious army or a rampaging mob is going around lynching people.

Cybus1 wrote:Heís being sent to Orson?
Oh god.
Maybe just transfer him to a German holding facility instead? That would make the most sense for everyone involved.

Louis Castaigne would be denied entry into Orson, largely for his own safety (as the Tōgatu would certainly lynch him).

The Orson Empire wrote:In all seriousness though, this event shows how little respect Orsonians have for diplomatic norms or international law- they tend to view them as guidelines, which could be manipulated in one's favor whenever necessary. Decades of propaganda demonizing the West and conspiracy theories about the UCP being a Cybusian-dominated New World Order have contributed towards these views.

The Keita Administration has proposed a public information campaign centered on combating these conspiracy theories about the UCP through the lens of it as being primarily motivated through West African-Wagain relations and the interests of the newly-formed West Africa Confederation to return the favor to the international community for supporting the November Revolution that overthrew the IMC Government and created the new WAC Government. -- After all, the very first UCP General-secretary was from the West Africa Confederation. Furthermore, the West African Support for the Federal Government even in the midst of war with the Aturorists to be shown through this lens of West Africa returning the favor for the aid provided in 1918.

Although this has the risk of simply switching conspiracy theories to theorize that the Malians are controlling the UCP, but it's believed that it's better that perceptions be that an ally of the Orsonian workers and the revolution is pulling the strings instead of an ideological enemy of the revolutionary-controlled government.

OOC: The best bet at this point is to educate the youngest generations about the lies these conspiracies parrot...although that's a difficult task when the teachers themselves are ardent believers.

Many of these conspiracy theories are ultimately based on hatred or suspicion of the Cybusians. Anti-Cybusian sentiment in Orson is similar to antisemitism in the early 20th century- widespread, virulent, and extremely vicious- so vicious that it resulted in the Holocaust. There's unfortunately no easy solution to this problem.
