      Cyber Nations Forum Rules   07/03/2016

        Cyber Nations Forum Rules  
      In the process of registering on this forum, all players--including you--agreed to accept these terms and conditions and the terms and conditions of Invision Power Board. In doing so you essentially signed an electronic contract pledging to have read the rules and TOS and agreeing to follow the rules and TOS as written. It is your continued responsibility to read, follow, and keep up-to-date with the CN rules.
      The following are basic guidelines for use of the Cyber Nations community forum. Anyone caught disobeying these guidelines will be issued a warning. The forum staff works on a five warn limit policy unless the situation calls for more appropriate action ranging from a verbal warning to a double warn and suspension to an immediate ban, etc.   Just because something is not listed specifically here as illegal does not mean it's allowed. All players are expected to use common sense and are personally responsible for reading the pinned threads found in the Moderation forum. Questions regarding appropriateness or other concerns can be sent via PM to an appropriate moderator.   A permanent ban on the forums results in a game ban, and vice versa. Please note that the in-game warn system works on a "three strikes you're out" policy and that in-game actions (including warnings and deletions) may not be appealed. For more information regarding in-game rules please read the Cyber Nations Game Rules.   1.) First Warning
      2.) Second Warning
      3.) Third Warning (48 hour suspension at the forum)
      4.) Fourth Warning (120 hour suspension at the forum)
      5.) Permanent Ban   Game Bans and Forum Bans
      If you receive a 100% warn level on the forums, you will be subject to removal from the forums AND have your nation deleted and banned from the game at moderator(s) discretion.   If you are banned in the game, then you will be banned from the forums.   Process of Appeals
      Players may not appeal any in-game actions. This includes cheat flags, canceled trades, content removals, warn level increases, nation deletion, and bans from the game.   Players may appeal individual forum warnings. You may only appeal a warning if you can show with evidence that it was unwarranted or unduly harsh. If a reasonable amount of time has passed (no less than one month and preferably longer) in which you have demonstrated reformed behavior than you may request a warning level reduction. Wasting staff time with inappropriately filed reports and/or unfounded appeals will result in a warn level raise. Repeat incidences will result in a ban from the forum.   Bans are permanent. Banned players may appeal to the Senior Staff if they believe grounds exist (very, very rare) in which they state their case with evidence and why explain why they believe they deserve to be allowed back into Cyber Nations. This process is not quick and the investigation into cases may last three minutes or three weeks or more depending on the individual situation.   The only place where discussion of moderator action is acceptable is in the appropriate Moderation forum. Posting commentary on or disagreement with moderator action elsewhere will result in a warn level raise.   Posting
      All posts must be in English. Common phrases in other languages will be allowed so long as they are translated upon request. Foreign languages are permitted in signatures and avatars, however.   Certain areas of the forum require you to have a nation in either standard CN or CN:TE. If you have...   A SE and a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are allowed to post in either SE or TE areas of the forum. You must have your CN:TE nation name listed in your profile to post in the CN:TE section of the forum.
      Just an SE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are not allowed to post in any TE areas of the forum.
      Just a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your TE nation name or ruler name. Your must have your CN:TE nation name listed correctly in your profile. You are not allowed to post in any of the SE areas. You are allowed to post in the water cooler, question center and the moderation forums. Other than that, all your posts need to stay in the TE area.   Flame/Flamebait/Trolling
      Flaming is expressing anger or lobbing insults at a person/player rather than a character, post, idea, etc. Flamebait are posts that are made with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking another user into rule-breaking. Trolling is submitting posts with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking a specific group into rule-breaking. Forum users should not be participating in any of these, and doing so will result in a warning.   Topic Hijacking
      Hijacking is forcing the current thread discussion off of the original topic and usually results in spam or flame from either side. Forum users found hijacking threads will be given a warning.   Repeat Topics
      One topic is enough. Repeat topics will be locked, removed, and the author given a warning. Users found creating repeat topics after others were locked by staff will receive a warn raise.   Joke Topics
      Topics created as a joke are prohibited. Joke topics will be locked and the author warned. This includes topics in which the author is making an announcement “for” another in-game alliance. Humorous threads are permitted; it is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what is merely satire and what is actually a joke topic.   Spam
      Spam is defined as creating posts or topics containing only contentless material of any kind. Users found spamming will receive a warning. Examples include (but are in no way limited to) posts containing nothing but smilies, "+1", "QFT", "this" any other one/few-word contentless combination, joke threads, or posts containing quotes and anything that counts as spam by itself. Adding words to a post with the express intent of avoiding a spam warn will result in a warning. These posts and other similar contributions have no substance and hence are considered spam. Posts of "Ave", "Hail" or any other one word congratulatory type are acceptable as one word posts. Emoticon type posts such as "o/" without accompanying text is still not allowed. Posts containing only images are considered spam, unless the image is being used in the Alliance Politics sub-forum and then the actual text of the image be placed into spoiler tags.   Posting in All Caps
      Posting large amounts of text in capital letters is not permitted. Use discretion when using your caps lock key.   No Discussion Forums
      There are forums that are not for discussion and are used strictly for game and forum staff to address certain issues, bugs, etc. The following forums are not open to discussion: Report Game Abuse, Report Forum Abuse, and Warn/Ban Appeals. Only moderators and the original poster may post in a thread, period, with absolutely no exceptions. Users found disobeying this guideline will receive an automatic warning for each offense.   Moderation Forums
      All Moderation forums also maintain pinned threads clearly marked as required reading before posting. Failure to read and follow required reading and procedure in a Moderation forum will result in a warning. Examples include posting requests in the wrong forum, failure to include all required information in posts, etc. The standard of conduct and enforcement of rules in Moderation forums is strictly enforced and the repercussions for disregarding rules or disrespecting staff are harsh. Read the pinned threads before posting and you will be fine.   Namecalling
      Excessive or unqualified namecalling is not allowed in IC forums; namecalling should also never make up the bulk of a post. Namecalling is prohibited entirely in all OOC forums.   Filtered Words
      Any attempts to evade the word filter will result in a warning. The terms we have filtered are filtered for a reason and no excuse for evasion will be accepted. Filter evasion includes censoring or deliberately misspelling part of a filtered word.   If you link to a website, image, video, etc., containing profanity, please post a disclaimer before the link. The moderation staff may still remove links if the content is deemed too obscene.   Harassment
      Forum users should not be stalking/harassing others on the forums. Anyone found stalking players from topic to topic, etc., will be subject to a warning.   Gravedigging
      Gravedigging is not allowed anywhere on the forums. Gravedigging is "bumping" old topics which haven't been active for quite some time (four to seven days is standard depending on the nature of the thread and how many pages back it had been pushed before bump). Your warn level will be raised if you are caught doing this.   The Suggestion Box and Black Market forums are partial exceptions to this rule. Suggestions/ideas in that forum may be posted in regardless of age PROVIDING that the reviving post contains constructive, on-topic input to the original topic or discussion. Black Market threads may be bumped by the author if there is new information about the offered exchange (i.e open aid slots). In the Player Created Alliances forum it will not be considered gravedigging to bump a topic up to a year old, so long as the alliance in question still exists and it is not a duplicate thread.   Signatures
      Those who fail to read and abide by these rules will have their signatures removed and receive a warning.   You may have only one image per signature which may not exceed the maximum size of 450 pixels wide by 150 pixels tall. You may have no more than 8 lines of text and text size cannot exceed size 4. Each quote-tag, image and empty line count as a line.   Inappropriate Images and Other Disallowed Images
      Images that are sexual in nature or have sexual overtones are prohibited. It is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what constitutes sexual overtones. Depictions of kissing are permissible provided there are no sexual implications. Images depicting female nipples are prohibited outright.   Making “ASCII art” is prohibited regardless of the image depicted.   Using photos or likenesses of another Cyber Nations player is also prohibited.   Drug References
      Images and posts promoting illegal drug use are prohibited. References to drugs are acceptable only if the moderation staff deems that it is not promoting the use thereof.   Obscene Content and/or "Account Suicide"
      Anyone caught posting vulgar material (including but in no way limited to pornography, "gross," "tubgirl," "lemonparty," photos depicting RL illegal acts such as violence towards humans or animals, child pornography, death photos, and any other obscene or offensive material in either text form or picture form) will have their account(s) permanently banned, and their ISP contacted along with any other applicable internet and RL authorities.   OOC Threats / Revealing Personal Information
      An OOC threat of any nature will equate to an automatic ban from the game and forums. Likewise, the publishing of personal information of any other player without their explicit permission is grounds for warning and/or a ban from the game depending on the severity of the offense.   Death Threats / Death Wishes
      A death threat or a death wish of any nature (including but not limited to telling another player to commit suicide) will result in at very least a 40% warn level increase and 2 day suspension from the forums, with harsher punishments, including a complete ban from the forums and game, up to the discretion of the moderation staff.   Quoting Rulebreaking Posts
      Do not quote any post with obscene content or any other content that has to be removed by the moderation staff. Doing so makes it more difficult for the moderation staff to find and remove all such content and will result in a warn level increase. Putting rulebreaking posts of any kind in your signature is prohibited.   Forum Names
      With the exception of moderator accounts, all forum accounts must match up exactly with the ruler name or nation name of your in-game country. Those found not matching up will be warned and banned immediately. Forum account names may not be profane or offensive.   Multiple Forum Accounts
      With the exception of moderators, if you are caught with multiple forum accounts, the multiple account(s) will be banned, warn level raised, and your identity will be announced by a moderator to the CN community so rule-abiding players can take IC action against you. Multiple forum account offenders will receive a varying percentage warn level raise and/or a permanent ban on a case-by-case basis.   Posting For Other Players
      Posting for banned or suspended players is prohibited, as is posting for any person without a nation. This includes making warn and ban appeals on their behalf.   Imitation &. Impersonation
      Imitation in terms of this forum is mimicking the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in an attempt to be satirical or generally humorous. Impersonation in terms of this forum is copying the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in order to present the illusion that the person is in fact that user. Imitation is fine and can be quite funny. Impersonation is disruptive and is warnable. Please pay attention to the subtle difference between these two concepts.   A player may not impersonate another player by emulating the characteristics of someone else's past or present account in an attempt to harass, stalk, or flamebait. Creating a new forum account in an attempt to impersonate a standing account will result in deletion and banning without notice.   Any attempt at imitation and/or impersonation of moderators and game staff is strictly prohibited and will be met with harsh repercussions.   Avatars
      Size for avatars is limited by the forum mechanics, therefore there is no size issue for a user to worry about. Avatars must be in good taste, and any avatar containing a picture that is too violent, disgusting, sexually explicit, insulting to another player or staff member, etc. will be removed. Avatars that are potentially seizure inducing will not be permitted. Players may not "borrow" the avatars of any moderator past or present without permission.   Swastikas and Nazi Imagery
      The swastika may not be used in signatures or avatars. Pictures of swastika's are acceptable for use in the In Character (IC) sections of the roleplay forums, so long as its context is In Character, and not Out Of Character. Pictures of Hitler, mentioning of the Holocaust, etc... have no place in the roleplay forums, since these people and events existed in real life, and have no bearing or place in the Cyberverse. Other Nazi or SS imagery is forbidden in all forums.   Moderation Staff
      The revealing of the private identities of any Cyber Nations staffers past or present is strictly prohibited, and thus no speculation/accusation of identity is allowed. Doing so is grounds for moderator action against your account appropriate to the offense, including a full forum/game ban.   Claims of moderator bias should be directed to the highest level of authority--the Head Game & Forum Mod/Admin, Keelah. Claims of moderator bias without supporting evidence is grounds for a warning.   Blatant disrespect of the moderator staff is strictly prohibited. This includes but is not limited to spoofing moderator accounts in any way, sig/avatar references, baiting, flaming, rude demands, mocking, attitude, and unsubstantiated claims of bias. They are volunteers hired to enforce the rules. If you have a problem with the way a moderator is enforcing the rules or the rules themselves please contact Keelah.   Attempting to use the moderation staff as a weapon by abusing the report system in an attempt to get another player warned or banned is strictly prohibited.   Do not ask about becoming or campaign to become a moderator. The moderators are drawn from CN membership but moderation positions are by invitation only. Asking to become one will substantially decrease your chances of ever being asked.   Aiding Rule Violators
      Any user found to know of a serious rule violation without reporting it to a game moderator (eg. knowledge of a user with multiple nations) will be given a warning or, in more serious cases, have their nation deleted.   Aiding Banned Players
      Any user found to be harboring, aiding or otherwise knowingly helping a banned user will be deleted. This includes knowing of their existence within the game without reporting it to the game-moderation staff.   Questionable Actions and Content
      The forum rules are not designed to cover every scenario. Any action that is seen to be counter-productive or harmful to the forum community may be met with moderator action against your account. The Cyber Nations Moderation Staff reserves the right to take action against your account without warning for any reason at any time.   Private Transactions
      Nation selling and other private transactions via such auction sites like eBay is against the Cyber Nations terms and conditions. While our moderators cannot control what people do outside of the game you are not allowed to promote such private exchanges on our forums without expressed permission from admin only. Anyone found to be engaging in such activity without permission will be banned from the game.   Advertising
      Advertising other browser games and forums is prohibited. Soliciting donations towards commercial causes is also prohibited. If you wish to ask for donations towards a charitable cause, please contact a moderator before doing so.   Extorting Donations
      Donations are excluded from any kind of IC payment. Anyone found extorting others for OOC payments will be warned in-game and/or banned.   Third Party Software
      Third party software is not allowed to be advertised on these forums by any means (post, signature, PM, etc). These programs can easily be used to put malware on the user's computer, and as such can cause huge security issues. Anybody who is caught spreading links to these will at the very least have their warning level increased.   Other Forum Terms & Rules   Please take a moment to review these rules detailed below.

Premier Zhang, visually frustrated by the counter-revolutionary nature of the pig-dogs before him, now realized that more drastic measures were needed to revive the revolutionary left from a position that is far worse than he feared. "Delegates from all parties except those from Guanwai and Alaska are hereby dismissed from the International. The Red Guards are waiting outside of the conference room to escort you back to your hotels and then to the airport."


Approximately 300 Red Guards were waiting outside in the hallway. Once all of the delegates had gathered their things, the long walk out of the building would begin. However, it would not end as planned. The Guards, under orders from Premier Zhang himself, would turn at once on their escortees and open fire, slaughtering every delegate within just a few seconds. The bodies were searched and valuables as well as documents were gathered, whilst mobile phones and any electronic devices were smashed and thrown in the incinerator at the bottom of the building with the bodies. Rooms were searched in the same manner, with large files being kept on all attendees of the conference. The Guanwai politburo would henceforth deny that any of the delegates had ever entered the country or that any international was ever held. The Red Guards, consisting of overzealous communists, would soon all but forget the event entirely, and as no gunshots could be heard from the outside, it would be exceedingly difficult for anyone to discover what really happened.


Meanwhile, in the conference room, the delegates of Alaska and Guanwai were discussing the intricacies of the Sino-Albanian split. Delegates from Romania, who [url=http://forums.cybernations.net/index.php?/topic/122512-the-democratic-peoples-republic-of-guanwai/?p=3278768]had already been receiving supplies from the Guanwai government for some time now[/url], would later arrive and join in the discussion.

Druk Yul's people would idly wonder what happened to their leftist party leadership.. investigations would repeatedly turn up little more than that they left the country and were not heard from again. It was assumed the plane must have crashed somewhere.

"What a waste of time," muttered Luxembourg under his breath in the general direction of his fellow Federation citizen when the Premier dismissed the vast majority of foreign parties from the conference. He and Monet began packing their things, unaware that they were being led like lambs to the slaughter. Upon reading the list of conditions from the Premier, he had never really intended to join the International, since the SDP did not qualify for a single condition in its present state, and would have been marginalized far more than PCQ had they decided to join.


Ms. Monet, on the other hand, had hoped for amendments to be made that were agreeable to the party leadership back home, and was quite surprised by the sudden unwillingness to negotiate. A few thoughts formed in the back of her head as she filed out of the chamber that she might have been able to delay her departure from the country and take a brief tour to see how a socialist nation operated and perhaps have some new perspectives to take back to the PCQ.


These thoughts were still in her mind when she exited the chamber along with the rest of the delegates, and failed to notice the multitude of armed soldiers in their way. Behind her, Luxembourg definitely took notice, but had little opportunity to do anything before the incoming fire cut them down, along with the rest of the delegates. Mr. Luxembourg would earn the dubious honor of being the first Federation Member of Parliament to be murdered while in office, although as he was there on party business and not official business, he wouldn't quite make it into an even more dubious honor of being killed in the line of duty, alongside other historical figures such as Leo Ryan.


The Federation delegates hadn't been carrying much on their persons or in their hotel rooms other than the usual electronics and personal papers, including their passports and party cards, along with identification marking them as a member of Parliament and a member of South Quebec's legislative assembly, respectively.


Certainly no direct information relating to the shooting would be transmitted by the two, but there was plenty of evidence that they had indeed been to Guanwai to attend a conference. Their respective parties had retained the invitations along with any and all communication supplied by the organizers in regards to arrival, hotel, and other mundane details and arrangements. The airline that carried them to Guanwai would doubtless have their booking and ticket information on file, and Federation PBCEA (Ports, Borders, Customs and Excise Agency) was aware of their departing the country. For Luxembourg, SDP and Parliament had both received notice of his presumably temporary absence, and had approved his travel itinerary including expenses, as well as having been apprised of the reason for his visit. PCQ and the South Quebec Legislative Assembly had secured the same information from Monet. Both Monet and Luxembourg had intended to call their respective supervisors that night to tell them how the conference was going, and when they missed their check-in, called the airline to confirm their flight had arrived and then the hotels to check if they had checked in.


A few routine votes in Parliament and SQ legislature later, and the two had to be called absent on the rolls each time. Their families were contacted, and both got the same reply: "Isn't he/she at that socialist conference in Guanwai?"


At some point, both parties found out that each other's members were missing, and eagerly compared notes only to find that both had had the exact same results. They went to the police with their information and an investigation began. Of course, the first thing the police did was contact the Foreign Ministry, and Minister Philippe Montgolfier found himself in the uncomfortable position of having to compose a letter to his counterpart in Guanwai.


Dear Sir or Madam,


I am writing to you on an urgent note to inquire as to the status of two Federation citizens who recently travelled to Guanwai on a matter of party business. I am speaking of one Mr. James Luxembourg MP, a Member of Parliament in the Federation and belonging to the Social Democratic Party; as well as one Mlle Celeste Monet, a member of the South Quebec Legislative Assembly and belonging to the Parti communiste du Québec. We have been informed by the respective families and parties of the two aforementioned citizens that they have been missing for several days, and have been unable to be reached, even though both had filed itineraries with their respective parties and legislative bodies stating they would remain for a few days in Guanwai on party business. I am informed that this business deals with an international communist conference?


Each has reportedly made plans to contact their people at home to inform them of the progress of the conference, and when they failed to do so, and contact with the hotels did not yield results, missing persons cases were opened at the Federation Mounted Police, the national police force here. The next logical step has been to contact Guanwai to further inquire as to their status, and as our two states do not exchange diplomatic representation, that duty falls to me to contact you and make an official inquiry. I trust that you understand the urgency of the matter, and implore you to find time in your busy schedule to accommodate my request.





The Honourable Philippe Montgolfier, Minister for Foreign Affairs

125 Sussex Drive, Ottawa



While waiting for a reply, Montgolfier thought it was prudent to contact FSIS, the Federation Special Intelligence Service. While he had no authority to command them, he reported the situation so far to the local section commander in Ottawa and suggested that it might be prudent to look into other ways of learning the information they needed, if Guanwai proved to be uncooperative or was more interested in feeding them a line of bull than helping to locate their missing citizens.

To: Philippe Montgolfier, Minister for Foreign Affairs

Thank you for your message. We are sorry to hear about your missing citizens. The Red Guard is taking this very seriously and will launch a full investigation into the disappearances. Please send us a copy of all relevant information in regards to their alleged visitation that your government deems may be useful to our inquiry, and we will be sure to do the same with any evidence we may find.

Incredibly frustrated himself, Nussenbaum packed up his things and began to head out of the building. He looked over his notes one last time - nothing indicated anyone present at the conference was a Bolshevik, although he had his doubts about the Premier himself. He was just about to mark this down as he walked into the hallway when several bullets ripped through his chest. The only thing he had managed to write was "Premier Zhang - B" before the Red Guard mowed him and the other delegates down. As he lay there on the hallway floor bleeding, he could do nothing but watch as a Red Guard soldier came up to him and aimed at his head one last time.

One of Mei's agents named Lin had been keeping close tabs on Jackie since he agreed to help Jesse should he have won the upcoming elections so it came as no surprise to her when she guessed what happened when none of the delegates left the building when they were supposed to. She would make a secure call to Mei to tell her what she think happened. "Make no mistake Empress. I believe that the delegates didn't seem to agree with our Gunwai friends and so they had the delegates silently executed somewhere inside."


"Jackie knew what he was getting himself into when he went there and knowing his father was the one responsible for the attack on Shanghai they technically would be doing us a favor by killing him. Jackie was a good man but it looks like he finally got himself into stuff he couldn't talk his way out of and so it probably him killed."


"How could you say that about him? He was one of us."


"He and his father have been a thorn at our sides since day 1. Without Jackie to lead them the Communist party have dropped out of the upcoming elections. Everything is happening exactly as it was expected to."


"You knew they were going to kill him and the other delegates?"


"I knew they probably would if the delegates did not agree with them on certain things. It was something that needed to happen eventually so right now I feel like thanking them. Jesse never really needed the support of the communists and without them slowing us down we will finally be able to get back into an era of economic stability. When the time comes he will be ready to take the throne and no one will able to say otherwise. However I must ask if you believe this is a precursor to an attack by Gunwai?"


"No. If they were going to attack their would have been massive troop movements along the border that we would have been able to see and there wasn't. I suggest putting the border guards on high alert and tell General Chang to continue the fotrification of Beijing just in case but so far they have done nothing else that would suggest they plan on attacking anyone."


"Keep up the good work Lin. Let me know when you get any more info on what happened."


"Will do."

The Federation would receive the following reply about a day later.


The Foreign Ministry transmitted all relevant data in regards to the visit and the missing persons cases, including a facsimile copy of their passports, their biometric data pertaining to said passports to aid in identification, the airline ticket and flight information, the itineraries and expense forms, their check-in at Federation customs, and all other helpful data including any visas Guanwai may have issued and the Comintern invitations themselves.



Thank you for your prompt reply. Here is all of the data we have gleaned in regards to their visit, and their intentions to return. We highly doubt that these two would willingly disappear themselves, as they are both prominent members of their respective legislative assemblies, including the national Parliament here in Ottawa, and further suggest that you treat this as a criminal matter. The airline hasn't reported any missing flights, and our citizens would make every attempt at contact with ourselves or Guanwai were they to be lost or kidnapped.


I am not aware of any "allegations" in regards to their visit, is that a mistranslation? It has been amply demonstrated that they did indeed leave this country with intentions to briefly visit Guanwai for the purpose of an international conference of communist parties. Furthermore, they would not have left this country without first having secured permission to visit Guanwai, and since we do not have a free trade agreement, that can only mean a visa, which your foreign office has to have either approved or denied before they even boarded an international flight. If it was denied, they would still be here, participating in votes and deliberations in their respective legislative bodies, but that is clearly not the case. I look forward to any information your investigation turns up. As always,




Philippe Montgolfier

Several days later, after a "thorough investigation", the Federation would again be contacted by Guanwai authorities.

To: Philippe Montgolfier

You should be so bold as to describe to me the way our own internal processes work? We do not restrict the travel of citizens and no permission is required to travel to Guanwai peacefully. Any persons who would thwart the interests of our Democratic People's Republic would do well not to come here, but all are allowed as a matter of principle. We are first and foremost internationalists and cosmopolitans.

Now, for the results of our investigation:

The hotel they were supposed to be staying at has no evidence that your citizens were ever there, and we have taken statements from several of the workers there whom do not report seeing them. Our airport does indeed have records that they arrived in Guanwai and took their bags, although we have no idea where they may have went from the airport and our investigation is currently at a roadblock.

It is possible that the Red Guards found them engaging in counter-revolutionary behavior within the lands we control, and summarily executed them, perhaps without knowledge as to who they were. If this is the case, all of their belongings would have been re-appropriated among the masses, and there is little that we can do for them. However, we see this as unlikely, not least because of the effectiveness and skill of our Red Guards. The most likely scenario in our eyes is that they've simply gotten lost. As they have not turned up yet, this may mean that they've since left our capital entirely. But if any persons matching their descriptions are detained or otherwise turn up anywhere in territories under our control, we will be sure to investigate fully and get in contact with your government to have them safely repatriated.

Thank you for your concern,
Red Guards of Guanwai

After receiving the reply, Montgolfier balked at the results of the investigation. He realized he wasn't getting anywhere, and called for a conference with the Prime Minister to discuss the matter of covert action to discover what Guanwai wasn't telling them. He was shot down, and had to formulate what he intended to be his last letter to the Guanwai authorities.


To: Foreign Ministry, Guanwai

CC: Red Guards of Guanwai


I am incredibly disappointed in your ability to discover what has happened to our citizens, and am more than a little perturbed at your casual suggestion that they may have been executed by your security forces for apparently vague and highly subjective "crimes." Your cavalier attitude to this serious matter, and your attempted denial that they visited your country, leaves me with a difficult duty.


This office is hereby placing a travel warning on Guanwai; Federation citizens are highly discouraged from visiting Guanwai on anything but critical business, and no Guanwai citizens will be issued visas to visit the Federation on anything but official business, which must be applied for and approved by this office on a case by case basis. A partial import/export embargo shall also be levied upon Guanwai, to the degree that no Federation company may buy or sell military equipment from or to Guanwai.


Furthermore, Guanwai will be barred from applying for diplomatic representation within the Federation, or to request the same from the Federation. Any Guanwai citizens present in the Federation must leave or be deported within two weeks; they will not be placed under arrest unless there is evidence of their having committed crimes, and there is no risk of their being executed due to "counter-revolutionary actions." Any Federation citizens present or residing within Guanwai will be repatriated at the earliest opportunity.


The Federation Mounted Police has informed me that the missing persons cases will remain open until a satisfactory conclusion is reached. In the future, Guanwai would do well to keep better tabs upon foreign dignitaries, or at the very least come up with more convincing distortions of the truth if they intend to maintain any semblance at legitimacy. Until then, they are in your country; if your security forces have executed them, their blood is on your hands, and appropriate diplomatic action will be taken if this is found to be the case. As always,

***Private Message to the government of the Democratic People’s Republic of Guanwai***
The government of Zapadnaya hereby requests information regarding the whereabouts of one of our citizens: Mr. Stefan Nikolov [Passport #] who travelled to Guanwai in order to attend a meeting of the ‘Communist International’ on [Date]. Pursuant to documentation filed prior to his departure from Zapadnaya, he was scheduled to return to the country yesterday.
As he has not done so, we hereby request the assistance of the government of the Democratic People’s Republic of Guanwai in locating Mr. Nikolov. A prompt reply would be greatly appreciated.

***Public Statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs***


It has come to our attention that a citizen of Zapadnaya who had traveled to the Democratic People’s Republic of Guanwai in order to attend a political conference referred to in documentation as ‘The Communist International’ is currently missing. The Zapadnayan government, referring to the aforementioned individual’s passport and exit visa applications, has confirmed that he boarded a flight to the Democratic People’s Republic of Guanwai. It has now been 24 hours beyond the date of return submitted on the individual’s exit visa application and, after attempts to contact the individual failed, we have declared him missing and have launched an investigation.


Any individual with any information about Mr. Stefan Nikolov's is asked to contact the nearest Zapadnayan Embassy or the Zapadnayan Foreign Ministry at [Phone Number] or ForMin@zapad.gov.zd. Individuals who attended the meeting of the Communist International in Guanwai are also asked to contact Zapadnaya if they have any information about Mr. Nikolov's whereabouts.

By now, the few citizens of Guanwai who were in the Atlantic Federation had gone back home. The same was the case for the Federation citizens in Guanwai; or, at least, all records the Guanwai government had indicated as such. No reply to the final letter would be received by the Federation; none was written.

The politburo of Guanwai issued a press release in response to the Zapadnayan public statement. In it, Zapadnaya and its government, as well as the family of the missing, were assured that Guanwai authorities intend to get to the bottom of these accusations and find out if their citizen is within Guanwai territory; and if so, where at?

In private, the Zapadnayan government would say much of the same, additionally urging the Balkan nation to keep its wits and be patient.

[OOC]As of this post, everybody except the Federation and Zapadnaya who send any correspondence to the Guanwai government will be assumed to have done so several weeks or longer after the scheduled dates of the International.[OOC]
