International Organisations / COSNAT Discussion on Troyes
« on: April 13, 2024, 10:23:49 PM »
As many of you will no doubt now be aware the city of Troyes in Albion has been disputed for several years. Currently the city is occupied by Seaforthian military members while its status as part of Seaforth is disputed by many who live in the city who see their destiny with Marseille, their ancestoral homeland. In the past few hours we have seen the group known as "Real Marseille" declare the city an independent sovereign nation that will seek union with Marseille. Currently we have two brewing international factions, first Aosta and Abertone have supported Real Marseille, while Seaforth and Achkaerin have ties to Seaforth.

The Kingdom of Weissenwald believe that this "city state" should not be permitted to become a ping pong ball between major nations. The city has a population of around 3 million people by our estimate and therefore the Kingdom of Weissenwald puts forward the following proposal.

1. We issue support for self determination by the city proven by an independent referendum.
2. We offer the services of COSNAT to manage this referendum.
3. We offer temporary special membership of this body to Troyes. Should the referendum make Troyes part of Marseille this membership would be withdrawn. Should they remain independent then membership shall continue if accepted.

We now open the floor to suggestions.

OOC-Please consider yourself to have received this if your nation has a population of under 15million.

To - Our Fellow Leaders

Over the last few years many of us nations that are seemingly dwarfed by the larger nations of Mundus have begun setting out into global affairs and I am sure you would agree that at times this can be challenging. It is clear that we are nations keen to play an active role within the world and often our small size leads us to be more innovative. It is though important that those of us small in population find ways to ensure our voices are amplified. With this in mind I would like to explore the possibility of us creating a formal partnership designed at mutual support and co-operation. If this proposal is of interest to you then I hope you will accept my invitation to Reinsberg to make this a reality.

Best Wishes

King Aldwin VI of Weißenwald

To His Majesty King Đurađ IV of Drenova and His Excellency President Sigmund Haugen of Holmvik

I am writing to you to extend an invitation to your government to meet with me and my Ministers in Reinsberg. It is our aim to put in place a series of initiatives to explore the ocean we all look south upon. In addition I would like to explore co-operative research in Hygelac. It is my hope that our geographic proximity could bring about like minded people who are willing to work together. I hope that you, or a representative, will accept my invitation at your earliest convenience.

Best Regards

King Aldwin VI of Weißenwald

As the 2023 Winter Games have come to a close Queen Hildegard visited the final day to watch the closing of the ceremony with a warning to those nations who took part. "Weißenwald have yet to enter the fold of the Winter Games community, next year we will and we intend fully to dominate the games. We are a nation born literally with ice in our veins and skis on our feet. There is no reason why we should not top the medal table despite our relative small size. Our national championship produces two or three people per event that could push the medal winners all the way. By 2025 we'll have to top the table and I believe that this should take place in Reinsberg. Unlike many nations we would not have to do much to prepare." The Queen was a member of the national youth team in her teenage years and only gave up donwhill skiing because of an ACL injury. She has since taken a keen interest in promoting involvement in winter sports. The Queen also announced that a significant investment will be made into Summer sports, "While we don't get the sunshine many nations enjoy we will hopefully compete in the Summer Games, we have very little chance of ever hosting such an event, after all the average Weißenwaldian doesn't even known what beach volleyball is yet alone play it."

The Games also saw the royal family begin their first international diplomatic steps. During the Games Queen Hildegard was in the royal box with King David of East Moreland. During watching the games it was agreed that the King and Queen will host the East Moreland monarch in the coming weeks. The Queen said "I was pleased to have been able to meet King David. While we were both at the Games to enjoy the spectacle we spoke also about the lack of diplomacy between our nations. It is something we shall look to move on in the next few weeks. We also are keen to form closer bonds with our neighbours."



Das Königreich des Weißenwald (Kingdom of the White Forest)
Motto - "Rooted in the Frost, United in the Forest"

Back in the depths of time three races inhabited the world, humans, the Moosleute (moss folk) and Erlking (a type of elves). At first the groups lived in peace however an evil Erlking seized control of the world. Humans retreated to the forests where the Erlking couldn't find them and formed an alliance with the Moosleute who eventually defeated the Erkling Army of Axuzh the Dark. Over time the human-Moosleute alliance began to fall apart as the Moosleute became more concerned with spiritual matters, and with their ability to move in and out of the spirit world the Moosleute formed the "Pact of Two Realms" with humans. The Moosleute would become residents of the spirit world however their existence relied on the existance of the trees from which they draw their life force. In return for the humans keeping the forest safe the Moosleute promised to aid them if the physical world was ever threatened. To cemet the "Pact of Two Realms" the most powerful human leader, King Leofdæg  Von Grimmelshausen, married a Moosleute Princess called Kriemhilde. The duo had eight children, all of whom except one was human. The Moosleute child returned to the spirit world as the human envoy while the rest began a bloodline that in the 13th Century secured the borders of modern day Weißenwald. While this story may be folklore it is a central belief of the nation and has helped create  Weißenwald culture which can be seen as rather authoritarian and focused on the monarchy.
