Recognition: This nation does not recognize any magic, fantastical creatures, or post-2014 technology or architecture. Any and all such things which enter into interaction with this nation will be interpreted through the lens of a realistic 2014 worldview. For example, interactive holograms, no matter how vividly described, would simply be ignored and not exist to a character from this nation.


This topic is closed for my personal use in documenting my CNRP2 nation.

Economic & Social Policy




The highlighted orange area, which is a 200 nautical mile extension off of the Union's shores, has been declared as the sovereign waters of the Federal Union of Southern African Republics. All foreign military vessels, with the exception of those of the African League, are banned from entering these waters without permission, and violation will be considered an act of war.


Foreign commercial vessels will require appropriate permits to operate in this zone, and attempts to exploit the territory without permits will result in a minimum of the offending vessel being impounded and confiscated. The offending party will be jailed, but their government will be allowed to petition for extradition. The confiscated materials may be bid upon at government auction.


This zone also includes a 200 nautical mile zone around the Crozet Islands and Prince Edward Islands. The extent of these zones can be seen in the following image.
