Communes and Enclaves

Antonio Salavarrieta was the chosen Worker-Diplomat who would travel to the American Enclave for the diplomatic meeting. His aircraft was one of the latest, and he felt quite safe travelling in it. Truly, the Worker's accomplishments were many and great!

 

The craft landed in Philadelphia, and Salavarrieta stepped off the plane, followed by a few aides and a single Guardsman. He was curious as to the impression he'd get from the Enclave.

Mr. Salavarrieta would be driven in one of the Enclave's finest diplomatic transports to the State Building, located several blocks away from the Executive House and the Capitol building. Inside the Conference Room, the Secretary of State Simon McBride would step forward and extend a hand in friendly greetings. 
 
"Welcome to the American Enclave, Mr. Salavarrieta. Let me introduce myself. My name is Simon McBride, and I am the Secretary of State, where I represent the American Enclave in diplomatic affairs," the Secretary said cordially. "Thank you for taking the time to come here."
 
McBride would gesture for Mr. Salavarrieta to take a seat. "Before we begin, I would like to make it be known that we are pleased to see a new nation form in the Americas, and that we look forward to cultivating positive relations with you."

"Thank you for the warm welcome, Señor McBride." Salavarrieta sat down with little pomp, asking for white wine and water if offered refreshments.

 

"I'm sure that we can establish a good relationship between our nations, though I must note that goals and ideology will play a part in this. That said, I would like to ask what sort of state the Enclave is? I haven't exactly been given much time to prepare myself before coming here. The Communion is, as the Chairman said in his announcement, a Worker's State. I suppose you would call it socialist, or communist?"

McBride would inform an aide to provide Mr. Salavarrieta white wine and water.

 

"The Enclave is a presidential constitutional republic with a mixed market economy, basically the same as our predecessor, the United States. I suppose your state could be described as socialist, although it appears not to be based on the ideology espoused by the radical group in Russia that was known as the Bolsheviks."

Salavarrieta thanked the aide with a smile, then turned back to McBride.

"I would like to think that our ideology differs from the Bolsheviks in a few ways, such as not sending random people or 'subversives' to gulag-equivalents. The Workers will always have the right to depose of the Chairman, if he becomes a demagogue, for example. The Military swears its oath to the Workers, not the state. Things like that. And though we do wish to spread our ideals elsewhere, achieving it through war or bloody revolution is not likely to produce good results. One need only look at the catastrophe that is China." He sighed and took a sip of the wine.

 

"Regardless, so long as your government does not hound the Workers, and so long as the Workers of your nation do not embrace violence, I'm sure that we'll get along reasonably well at the very least. Better, if both of us put a little effort into it, I would say."
