Rulers and Leaders of the world's nations,

 

Maximilian Varos, the Emperor of the Russian Empire cordially invites you to visit the Imperial Palace located in the city of Stalina in the Russian Empire. Here in the Imperial Palace a grand feast will be taking place, where food and drink shall be provided in vast quantities along with great entertainment both inside and outside. All leaders and rulers are invited as this shall be a great day and night to mingle and interact with one another on a scale yet to be seen.

 

The Emperor and the rest of the Russian Empire look forward to seeing you.

 

 

 

Included with the above message was instructions on how to travel to the Russian Empire and informed all prospective guests that the Stalina International Airport had been temporary closed to any non visiting dignitary traffic. Therefore there would be plenty of room for any private jets that arriving visitors could be using and limousines had been stationed at the airport to bring any and all visitors to the Imperial Palace shown below.

Charles Davidson had only worked a few months in the diplomatic corps of French Guiana, when president Hollande told him to report to stalina and pay their respects to the Russians. Instead of private jet he flew first class on a public flight, the small country only could afford one man a private jet and he had work to do back home. As his taxi pulled up he realized how reserve and down to earth he might appear to the emperor and the other guests, but he had a job to do and do it he would.
The imperial palace was impressive, there was no such building like it back home and Davidson simply couldn't help but look up at it in awe.

With for once most things in order in Carthage it was about time Anysus would continue his outreach to foreign lands, as such when the invitation came in a response from Carthage would happen swiftly. Not much later a modified Airbus A380 headed for the Russian Empire. Once inside Russian airspace they would identify themselves as Carthaginian Air Force One and request permission to land at the airport. Once landed Anysus walked out of the plane, escorted by his Sacred Band detail and wearing a navy dress uniform with Fleet Admiral insignia, and enter one of the limousines which took him and his guards to the entrance of the palace.

Robert took his private jet to the Russian Empire which would be like an days flight from the Ukraine,upon boarding the jet and leaving the airport his vice president wrote a head to let Maximilian Varos know that the president would be coming. Upon arriving at the airport and leaving the jet Robert was escorted to the Imperial palace where the fest would be held.

The few guests that had turned up would be met by a large band of musicians and their own personal greeter at the entrance to the Imperial Palace. As the musicians played the Imperial Russian national anthem a trio of three Imperial fighter jets would fly overhead in a ceremonial fly over. The greeters would then lead the guests in to the Imperial Palace itself, the guests would be lead through the high quality marble corridors and into a massive ball room that was strung up with Imperial Russian colours, outfitted with large number of tables upon which trays of various meats, vegetables and deserts of all kinds rested ready to be eaten. 

 

Standing at the center of the room would be Emperor Maximilian Varos himself in his Emperor's ceremonial uniform of a deep black jacket with gold linings, matching black trousers with gold linings and his blonde hair was swept back into a pony tail held in place by a gold band. On his arm was his wife Lady Jacquelyn Varos in a full length black dress with gold edging and as the guests were taken down the entrance way steps the pair would walk forward to meet them speaking to them all as one in greeting.

 

"My honoured guests thank you for attending this feast. I had very much hoped for more guests to attend but alas it seems either they are indisposed or perhaps the Russian Empire is too unimportant to them. Regardless I Emperor Maximilian Varos thank you for attending. May I introduce you to my beautiful wife Lady Jacquelyn Varos" said the Emperor stepping to one side and guiding his wife forward with one hand.   

 

"It is an honour to meet you all" Jacquelyn said with a warm smile, "I do hope you will enjoy this feast we have prepared for you all. I also hope to get soem time to talk with each of you in person I wish to learn much about yourselves and your nations".

Baffin Island president Louis Cook arrives.

 

"I am sorry for late arrival. I hope there is a spot left, and i would be honored to sit there. Baffin Island is very busy cleaning up a mess that we did not even want to get into, so i was late to my flight. If i may discuss the people of Baffin Island's nation.

Baffin Island is an isolated, proud-to-be-canadian nation up in North America. We follow a demarchy government and a traditional economy. We prefer to stay quiet and only meet when we feel it is necessary. I came today to both try to gain some friends to establish relations with, and to make clear what recently went on in Rio de Janeiro."

Jacquelyn would raise a hand to her lips and chuckle lightly before reaching out and placing a hand on President Cook's arm. "Please President Cook there is no need to discuss such private information in front of everyone else. Please let us talk in private" she said before offering to lead President Cook to one side of the room so they could talk in private. Turning his attention away from his wife and back to his guests Emperor Varos would motion to the food on display. "Please take anything that catches your fancy on these tables all the food and drink is available to all. If anyone would like to talk in private please come to me and I will gladly give you some of my time. In the meantime mingle and enjoy yourselves."

"Well thank you for taking your time here. I will make this quick and then we may get back to the feast.

Basically, my nation sent troops a while back to Rio to attempt to assist the city(before the Rio government came). Tikal told us to leave, but we stayed, got some nice ports because in our nation, it is too cold to get a well running, not cold port. It was then claimed and we were pushed out, ruining the time we put into the ports and military bases. We just wanted a nice weather protectorate that we could use. I just wanted to make this clear that we had no bad intentions"

Charles Davidson went to a small table in the corner fixing himself a small plate of food and drinking some non alcoholic refreshment. Davidson looked around the room at the few who showed up, Davidson would keep to himself at first allowing himself to enjoy the meal. But if anyone wished to join him he wouldn't shy away from company during the meal.

President of the Federation, William Lyon Evans, declines the invitation and further suggests that the host nation would do better to feed the poor of its country than to display the excesses of its elite, like the Romanovs did.

"Seems like a simple misunderstanding to me sir and I am sure if you explain as such the other national leaders would understand. In fact if you want I am sure I could have a word with my husband and have a port leased to our nation for an agreeable price. It may not be warm but at least it would be better than nothing don't you think?" replied Lady Varos with a smile.

 

Robert approached Emperor and extended his hand in an friendly jester."I am President Robert of the Ukraine and it's an honor to meet you Tsar Varos."

 

Maximilian would take the offered hand in greeting before speaking. "Please Mr President we do not use the term Tsar here in the Russian Empire as it is an outdated name for an outdated time. Instead you would call me by my title Emperor but here in private please call me Maximilian. I must say it is an honour for myself to meet with you. Tell me what are your first thoughts on my nation and this feast itself?"

Mr. Cook receives a call, and walks into one of the corners. A few moments later he returns.

 

"As of half an-hour ago, the government roll has happened, and a new president has been selected. Since i am currently representing the Baffin Republic, i will be representing the government of Baffin Island for the remainder of this feast, and any other events that will be going on involving us. So, in regards to your families nation, Mr. Dillion, if you do not mind i would like to hear a little about your nation."

Druk Yul sends a representative to the gathering. An older man, grey hair, beard, wearing grey monk robes and with jade green eyes. He tends to keep his cowl over his head so that his face is dark. What place and role he has in Druk Yul's government is unclear. The man approached Maximillian, extended the hand of a man that has seen much work and spoke with a deep, somewhat rasping voice, "Greetings Emperor, I am Maelstrom Vortex.. Dreamer of Druk Yul. Pleased to be in your presence today."

Following the feast and their conversations with other guests Anysus would approach both the Emperor and his wife. "Emperor, Lady. It is a pleasure to meet you. Anysus I, King of Carthage" He said.

 

"Your highness it is a great honour that you grace us with your presence. I and my wife thank you for coming. If i may ask how was your trip?" replied Maximilian as his wife stood by his side willing to allow her husband to take the lead.

"Greeting Mr Vortex. That is a most interesting name and an even more interesting title. I would be most pleased if you could tell me more of yourself and where you have come from" said the Emperor with a warm and inviting smile. 

 

OOC: I will respond to each person at the same time but please take it as if they are having their own separate conversations. it saves time and stops people from having to wait.

After a short phone call, Mr. Davidson left without so much of saying a word. When stopped by a servant to be asked what was wrong Davidson could only say on thing "Your emperor is a pig". He took the first flight home back to French Guiana, ending any chance of diplomatic ties between the two countries.

Maelstrom responded, "Druk Yul sent me. I am their religious leader, but I also hold some pull with the monarchy and am their representative here. You have a beautiful palace and I thank you for entreating us to dine with you. A truly marvelous occasion you have arranged here. Anything you'd like to talk about? Lots of happenings in Asia.".. He noticed the Guiana representative march out abruptly.. "Some of which seem important to others."

He sighs and looks to Maximillian, "We might have been friends... but I see now.. a grave darkness rests in your soul and the soul of your people. I hope you find a way to remove it. I go now, my people need me.. and recent events are helping me find my way." The old man before him vanished.. the robe fell empty to the ground supported by nothing beneath.

By now it was becoming painfully obvious people were starting to leave. "Well it does seem some people certainly have weak stomachs around here. In any case to answer your question. I have only recently ascended to the throne of Carthage, before that I served as a colonel in the private military company in the hands of my father where I saw combat in various regional conflicts. How about yourself?"
