The list of priorities now arriving at the desk of the Foreign Ministry was ever growing, and the Reformists had recently gained a majority in the Imperial Diet. One of their main agenda priorities was the formalization of better international relations, primarily with those whom the Empire held slightly rocky relations to due to disagreements or unneeded tension. Among these nations was the Sarnungian Republic, with whom the Empire had squabbled just after refounding the Japanese state. Chancellor Jun Fukuyama was to be dispatched to the Republic if the letter reached the Prime Minister of the Republic in fitting time. Minister of Foreign Affairs Ono Daisuke was currently busy with other pressing matters, and as such members of the Foreign Affairs Ministry (Diplomats) would accompany the Chancellor.

To: Prime Minister Myleene Klass; Sarnungian Republic
From: Chancellor Jun Fukuyama; Dai Nippon Teikoku (Greater Japanese Empire)
Subject: Formalization of Diplomatic Relations/Diplomatic Conference

Prime Minister Klass,

In the past our two nations have held modestly rocky, if not slightly hostile relations towards one another. Such can be apparent by the brutish comments slung back and forth during the reformation of Japan into the nation it is today. As such, I've been tasked by the Empress and the Imperial Diet to make a visitation to the Sarnungian Republic on a diplomatic mission, and if possible, to hold a conference with you and (maybe) the King himself. It is our new national policy that we should seek better ties on the international level, and not just stick to our own continent, but look out into the greater world itself. With proper authorization, I will immediately depart and begin my trip to the capital of your nation.

Signed,

Jun Fukuyama
Imperial Chancellor of Dai Nippon Teikoku (Greater Japanese Empire)

A message was sent back, with instructions to Chancellor Fukuyama. The instructions were mainly for the plane trip, as they would be holding an air show for the Chancellor and certain airspaces would be closed for practice. In addition, the message instructed him to bring a liquid gift.

Chancellor Fukuyama adhered to the instructions sent to him, and departed in a Imperial Gulfstream. He arrived at the predestined airstrip a few hours later carrying a case of the finest Sake in all of Japan with him. After exiting the plane with a guard and 3 members of the foreign ministry he bowed to the people who had chosen to greet him, and awaited to be taken to the conference location.

Prime Minister Klass was waiting in Palace Demokratos - the palace of the monarchy - in the Marble Room 13. Most of the Palace was made of marble, to celebrate the Greek memories of the past, and Marble Room 13 was one of thirteen foreign affairs rooms. There was the Gold Room and the King's personal Wood Room - but the rest of the palace was made of marble as well, and most other rooms had no name. Chancellor Fukuyama was shown his way into the Marble Hall, and was presented to the closed door of Room 13.

"You may enter. Guard stays outside."

Jun Fukuyama nodded to the man next to him, and left his guard outside. He walked in quietly with his 3 delegates, and allowed himself to bask in the interesting architecture that surrounded him. It was quite a bit different from the Imperial Palace, and the Japanese architecture he was generally used to back at home. As he took his seat on the opposite side of Klass, he bowed in a formal manner to the Prime Minister before actually sitting.

He awaited her to speak.
