Belarus would express its interest in joining, and would send Pavel Shidlovsky to represent it.

Little did anyone, including Pavel, know, that this assignment was meant to keep Pavel, who was suspected of having ties with Polish nationalists, away from Belarus. A relatively comfortable exile for the aging diplomat.

A young man would clap twice and await silence by the diplomats.

 

"Good afternoon, ladies and gentleman. I believe we should get started. My name is David Marxon, Vice President of the California Republic. I would like to start off by thanking everyone for showing up. Next, let's discuss trade. The world needs more trade, and I think this is a great way to do that. For an example, would any representative here think they would be interested in one of our prized possessions, delicious seafood? Caught right here in San Fransisco."

The Cascadian Minister of Finance, Jay Buckley, who had arrived at the conference earlier scoffed and whispered to one of the of the representatives to his left, who he believed to be from Hungary-Slovakia. "One of their prized possessions is their delicious seafood." He laughed before continuing, "The best seafood comes from Cascadia! Nowhere else." Reading over the proposal Jay stood up, "Hello, I'm Jay Buckley from Cascadia, where I serve as the Minister of Finance. We in Cascadia have some issues with article 7 and 8. Starting with seven, no foreign national has the right to enter Cascadia and begin building a project such as that. While we have no qualms about assisting the flow of trade or making it easy on some lazy bureaucrat. Cascadian trade goes where it goes. Time for eight, Cascadia will send aid to whomever and whatever it wishes. No multinational organization will decide that." Jay took his seat. poured some landfallian death juice and waited for other diplomats to weigh in.

The Maltese Representative quietly shuddered after noting its only 5 year old Landfallian Death Juice, the alcoholic equivalent of furniture polish.

"I am open to discussion. This is still a draft. Article Seven will be removed. Article 8 is, and I will be sure to reword it, supposed to mean that The Trade Committee itself cannot take sides or offer aid, however an individual nation can so long that they are not using the Trade Committee. In other words, your nation can do it, just the Trade Committee will not work together in that aspect, you must just do it individually."

The Greek representative, George Pappodopolous, had arrived quietly and made his way into the meeting. He was an unremarkable man, easy to miss until he spoke. He had waited quietly while the first few outbursts of grandstanding came, and he shook his head slightly at the antics of the other representatives. He jotted a few notes on the pad he'd brought with him, but otherwise remained silent so as to better observe the dynamic that would form with this new organization.

The Yugoslavian representative, Zlatan Pavlovic Pukar, had finally arrived to the conference. He was the more quieter of the Kingdom's Great Council, preferring to speak privately with his Kralj about the affairs of the Kingdom's economy, trade and industry when something relevant needed his attention or decisive decision. A notepad and a pen were visible on his hands, jotting down things to have a glimpse of the current dynamic in the conference and what was being discussed before he felt the need to finally enter the ring and put forward the Kingdom's interests.

One man, dressed very formally in a suit and tie, walked in from the door in the back and for about 2 minutes whispered in David Marxson's ear, then he stepped back as Marxson stepped up and prepared to speak.

 

"Following a recent debate over in our own government, we have decided it is in all of our interests that the official headquarters of the [World] Trade Committee be the Alcatraz Island. Any objections?

 

And on another note, articles 7 and 8 have been edited to make the statement more clear. Now, do we have somebody willing to sign this document?"

“Alcatraz seems like an odd option,” George spoke up at last. “The California Republic is not exactly centrally located for the majority of us, or the majority of trade. Would it not make more sense to place the headquarters in a location central to the members of the organization, as well as to global trade routes?”

"Would it not be best to suggest the port city of San Juan in Puerto Rico within the United Caribbean States?" asked Zlatan Pukar, an eyebrow quirked as he glanced at the UCS representative, "It would be more central, not too deep within the Caribbean and the ability to reach the port from all countries would be made easier due to its prime location."
