The Cuban people, gracious of our hosts in Pravus Ingruo who have taken care of Cuban land while others may attempt to pervert our land and our people for their own geopolitical needs, are extremely proud to announce the reformation of the Cuban state, the continuance of our history, and our new government, headed by Generalissimo Isabella Perez!

Of course, the title Generalissimo refers to the uniquely democratic title of President when applied in tandem with the position of General of the Armed Forces - Generalissimo Perez was freely elected with 64% of a Cuban referendum, in opposition with 22% against a former diplomat and the rest of the vote divided amongst minor candidates. The 72-year old Generalissimo was elected to lead our nation through the often turbulent time of resurgence and is expected to serve for a short period before another set of elections are called.

Over the course of the rest of the day, we will be presenting our plan to rebuild Cuba to refocus our efforts on maintaining the island and its sustainability, as well as ensuring that we do not rely on foreign essentials like food, medicine, or fuel. We will be constructing personalized embassies for each nation who wishes for one, and will open our borders for foreign governments and NGOs who wish to establish a foothold in the growing Cuban economy.

Foreign Representative Atalanta Lecuona will be handling any questions or comments, as well as be the official representative from Cuba for any corporation, organization, or government that would like to establish an operation inside of Cuba. Thank you, and God bless.

"American nations are popping up like dandelions! It's a wonderful time to live in America, far away from the Empires of the East. Here, democracy and freedom trump all.

We offer both full diplomatic recognition and an embassy in Charleston. God bless and carry on!"

We forgot freedom of speech is only for the select few, and that the Horde, a nation obviously made up of toddlers, has temper trantums and throws their weapons around like lives are only toys in the event anyone ever disgraces their nation. We have absolutely no respect for the self-obsessed Horde or Athenian Federation, and if they attack nations for such a small ordeal we will gladly fight their tyranny to the death.

War is no answer, but some nations are too rash to even think.

Representative Atalanta Lecuona,

The Republic of Texas is interested in Cuba seeing as the island is finally out of the control of Pravus Ingruo and in a state of independence. The Western Hemisphere has been going through a great amount of change including: Colonization, Tyranny, War, Liberty, Freedom, and the raising of free and new flags across the two continents of North and South. If it wouldn't be to much trouble, could you go into more detail with the type of government the Cuban people have chosen to be under?

I, on the behlaf of Texas, am curious as to the inner-workings of your government and economy. If it wouldn't be to much trouble - of course.

Respectfully,

[i]Matt Damon[/i]
[b]Secretary of State of Texas[/b]

"Mr. Secretary,

The Cuban government is still in a transitional stage: we held a direct democratic election for the title of President, as well as for the offices beneath (such as Foreign Representative); some titles (like Generalissimo) were changed to reflect official titles from before the formation of the new government. Unless the basic framework of our nation goes through an overhaul between now and the official unveiling of the Cuban Writ of Law, which will outline in unbreakable (but amendable) code the workings of our government, Cuba will be a primarily direct democracy on two levels: national and city. At the city level, each city (defined as an organized group of buildings with infrastructure and permanent residency and defined borders; metropolitan areas are grouped into one) directly elects officials to draft legislation. Each piece of legislation is directly voted on until there are several different variations of a bill that can be voted on, and then each variation goes into a group direct vote to determine which bill passes. This ensures direct citizen involvement with their community lawmaking. A national-level bill is done this exact way, but instead of applying to the city it moves up a tier into the national level bill passing Convention. On the national level, each city level government is appointed one elected official slot, directly elected by each city. Each official then goes to a bi-weekly Convention on the Laws of Cuba, where they will propose national bills that have passed through the city-level process described above. The officials weed out contradictory (not necessarily opposing, just contradictory or impossibilities) clauses in the bills, then put each set of clauses to the same series of votes that a city-level bill goes through.

I understand this may be hard to grasp at first for the unfamiliar. In essence, every bill is voted on multiple times and put together piecemeal, with directly elected officials guiding the way - and then multiple versions of those piecemeal bills are voted on, with the highest direct vote count being the winner. One must have 50% or more to win, so if there are less than 50% of voters supporting a measure, the least popular are eliminated. For national level bills, the process must be done a second time.

Economically, the Cuban government has no set position as we are still in a transitional stage. We can suffice to say that there is little in terms of regulation or profiteering going on, as little formal economy exists in Cuba that can be measured. With the new opening of our nation, more clarity can be shed on that but I'm afraid there is no clear answer.

Texas is welcome to send political advisers, media teams, and observers to learn more about the Cuban process or even have a hand in assisting us if we are in need of help. We would be glad for the exchange between neighbors!"

The Empire is glad to see a stable government of the people of Cuba rise to take stewardship of their lands. All military equipment will be withdrawn to Guantanamo Bay or off the island within two months.

As for Texas, taking veiled diplomatic shots across our bow will win you no favors. We have granted these people the freedom to choose their own path, and they have done so. The fact that we protected them from outside aggression was merely keeping a promise. The fact that you say you are glad they are "finally out of our control and in a state of independence" only shows your ignorance of the matter, and such comments will keep the Americas from functioning as a cohesive unit like they once were.

"The Compagnie would like to ask the Cuban government for permission to open a local branch in Havanna to trade with Cuba."


[b]OOC:[/b] The Compagnie, or for the long title [i]La Compagnie du Commerce et des Colonies Vicidaliénnes[/i], was formerly a company acting like e.g. the East India Company, for the country of Vicidalia. However, with the overthrowal of the Vicidalian Grand Principality, it is a private-owned company, trading across the globe. Just think of them as some transnational corporation.

New Panama welcomes this new Cuban nation and would like to immediately place an order for some cigars!
[/quote]
Cigars are banned!

Haha, just kidding! At the moment, to ensure proper economic variables are accounted for, all cigar exports are being halted for a three-day window to accomodate economicians(?) who wish to study more to get a better grasp on economic policy in the future.

But I'm sure if you just contract it out to a private citizen who is free to buy them by himself and then fly a plane to New Panama, you'd get them on time.

Take no rush in removing military equipment; the island is grateful to Pravus Ingruo for their protection and stewardesship during a rough period in our history, and we would be honored to continue hosting you now as guests in our land. Any citizens of Pravus Ingruo are given the same legal rights as a Cuban citizen as long as our nations continue to exist!

Cuba, and the Havanan officials, would be glad to allow the Compagnie to open a local branch. Be warned that regulations (or lack thereof) have not been codified and government is still in transition, so the Compagnie should be ready to adapt for some swiftly-changing rules of acting in the upcoming weeks.

The Confederation of Kuklos is watching the development of the Cuban government closely, remembering the poor fight the natives put up against the first landing of Kuklosian settlers. Privately, conversations of this being a mere puppet state have circulated among higher-ranking Magisterium officials.
