"This certainly changes things," a council member comments. "Our oath the Empress is still very much intact," comments another council member who goes onto finish with, "I see we have an obligation to honor it to the best of our ability." "Well, first we need to sit down with her and explain our grievances. Once we've ironed out our differences and laid out our expectations of creating a true merger we'll be in a better position," Dellion responds. "What do we want?" asks a Council Member. "No more nationalist identities. A true merger brings us all into the same community. We need a national identification and Imperial Citizenship for a Austria and Legion. Further, a creation of a mixed Austrian/Legion Corp for defensive operations in Austria. Last, a careful restructuring of Legion social programmes to bring them into line with each other. Samething for our university progammes," Dellion says. That conversation concludes after several hour of haggling before a mutual agreement is found. [quote]Legion Austria Merge Suggestions In order to create a more harmonious union between our two great nations we, the Legion Council have several requests. We wish to institute an Imperial government that provides for an Imperial Parliament. Members of Parliament will be drawn from Legion and Austrian ranks. Terms of office are 6 years with possible re-election, depends on the whim of the people. We request a carefully considered review of both our charters or constitution for an amalgamation of the two documents into one Imperial Charter so that Austrians and Legionnaires will be given the same rights and duties. The Empress Maria Theresia may well be your leader, but out of fairness we wish consider a dual monarchy. Not in the sense that there are a King and a Queen. Legion just doesn't have that sort of attachment to royalty. However, Legion is willing to provide a high ranking member of our government so that he or she might act as a co-ruler of the Empire. Perhaps overtime the actual mechanics of such a move will have to be very carefully considered. For this reason whoever we provide will be very careful about not directly injecting themselves into European affairs until they have consulted with the Empress beforehand. We ask that a common language be adopted as the lingua franca of this Imperial Empire. It need not be an African Language or even Austrian. I do support the idea that these languages should be taught in schools, but we feel a second language should be required for the citizens of both countries in order to provide a common ground of communication. Many of our soldiers speak French due to the French Foreign Legion influence at the founding of the African Legion so long ago. Last, and this is important, we invite the Austrian Military to join Legion forces in celebrating Legion Day. In the past Legion day was to remember the Battle of Dengali, but now it's proving to be so much more. Specifically all the men and women of both of our military organizations that fell in the Austrian Germany War no so long ago. -Dellion[/quote] Edited August 25, 2011 by Tidy Bowl Man Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
