Due to continued beligerent attempts to tax our shipping by the rogue state of Taiwan, the government of New Cymru hereby revokes all diplomatic recognition of the state of Taiwan, and calls upon other nations to do the same. Unfair taxation of goods has been decried by the world in the past, especially with regards to the wayward Kyokujitsujin, and this shoudl be no different. Furthermore, any ship en-route to or from Port Venture is eligible for a military escort, and any attempt by the rogue state of Taiwan to blockade or seize vessels shall be considered the first official act of war by the Federal Government. That is all.

Good Day.

*Classified*

All military forces in Port Venture have been placed on high alert, all available reserves have been called to action.

The Chairman shakes his head, "We are upset to see the relations between a pair of friends decline. Surely there is a diplomatic solution to this situation. We do not understand the need to tax shipping at all. It only hinders trade and upsets diplomacy. A an internal sales tax applied to all transactions is a more effective means of ensuring equal and fair taxation."

While the Melvin Republic does not believe in shipping taxes, we see it as no reason to break off diplomatic ties and attempt to isolate a nation. Perhaps they are having financial woes and need the additional income. Or maybe they just don't want people in their territory, and are using economic tools rather than outright prohibition.

***Classified to New Cymru***

We have, as you will notice, obtained rrights to ship through their waters. We are willing to transport civilian cargo at no cost to your nation through this area whenever you wish. We do not want to risk unnnecessary tension with the Dragon Empire.

Or perhaps we could help facilitate a trade agreement between you and Taiwan as well.

Either of these options would be preferable to open war, but we felt our stance should be noted by the world.

It is Taiwan's right to tax shipping, this is merely another act of belligerence and saber rattling by New Cymru.

For a supposedly friendly nation, especially one recommended to us by our closest allies in Promised Land, you are being exceedingly unfriendly towards us. Please do not make us question our allies' judgement.

Considering all we've seen out of you has been exceedingly unfriendly messages towards our ally in Taiwan, we are not inclined to offer you roses and candies.

We reiterate our earlier statement. Taiwan controls one of the VERY few viable trade routes through this region. It is natural that some would feel threatened by this taxation.

It may also interest Yawoo to know that any attack upon New Cymru is also an attack upon Promised Land, and if we are not mistaken, Promised Land were your main sponsors in obtaining the land you hold today. Not to mention the rest of the Australasian Coalition.

Perhaps, but it is Taiwan's right to tax shipping through their water passages, it may not be popular, but it is still their right. On taxation note, I can find no public record of Taiwan issuing taxation on New Cymru, so until those records surface, The Republic of Yawoo's official stance is that New Cymru is just saber rattling for the sake of causing trouble in the region.

While we are reluctant to do so in these circumstances, we must affirm that the statement made by New Cymru is the truth.

If New Cymru thinks The Republic of Yawoo would not go to war in the defense of her ally then they're much mistaken. The sponsors of The Republic of Yawoo's lands were indeed the Australasian Coalition, but their claim to the land is null and void now that the people have spoken and the islands are ruled by democracy. We are a sovereign nation now, and whomever kept the islands protected was thanked the day that the people were able to full organize themselves into a stable government.

OOC: FYI: It was Ezequiel who let me know Indonesia was a protectorate in the first place ;)

"Perhaps it is their right, perhaps it is not. But the last nation that so severely restricted trade in the region, Kyokujitsu Teikoku, was annihilated for that very reason. Wars have started over less.

The fact remains that nowhere has Taiwan said that it is taxing New Cymru anything above what it would tax someone else, so I demand that New Cmyru provide proof of its allegations.

"New Cymru has shown us evidence (OOC: read IRC logs) that Taiwan is indeed taxing them. The only reason Promised Land shipping is not being taxed by Taiwan is a treaty where we gave Taiwan some land that they wanted."

OOC: IRC is a completely OCC element. If it isn't posted on the forums, it isn't IC. That is the standard here, as shown in the war with the Nords.

IC:

I have seen no such evidence, and since Taiwan hasn't released any information on the taxation of New Cymru then The Republic of Yawoo calls once again for New Cymru to show the evidence.

"We would like to inform the nations of this debate by stating what we believe.

Taiwan does not and never will, support taxation of other sovereign nations through our waters in this situation. Taiwan does, however, restrict the passage to 6 miles width from the 250Th mile from each of Taiwan's coastlines in the Gulf. The Channel, on the other hand, does not follow this guideline.

We expect New Cymru to follow these guidelines, as they are more than reasonable for any nation.

As stated before, Promised Land does have a trade agreement with Taiwan for free militaria and civilian transit through the Gulf and taxed militaria ships through the Taiwanese Channel.

Any more problems are to be reported to the Taiwanese Government directly.

Kind regards,

Nebu II."

OOC: I'm not sure...I think the GM's ruled otherwise. In other words, I'm bluffing... ;)

OOC: That's what #cnrpic is for and any conversation labeled "IC" by all participants in private channels or queries. If it ain't labeled, it's fabled.

The Theocratic Bureaucracy of Rebel Virginia finds this situation to be most amusing. Although we harbor an intense dislike towards both of your nations, we will support Taiwan, as we dislike New Cymru much more. Furthermore, yes, we have returned. Our only regret is that some of our enemies still live. In other new, His Holiness Pope Bubba XIII has declared himself the New Messiah, and therefore better than you pathetic mortals.

OOC: I'm pretty sure the current GM's ruled that even IC IRC convos aren't considered as evidence. Though i could be mistaken.

Wait, #cnrpic?

"Blasphemy!" was all that was heard from the Catholic Church fo Promised Land.
