OOC: Not to dampen your spirits, but a quick word...

Here in Europe we generally assume all nations have diplomatic relations with all other nations unless otherwise stated. This is simply because we assume IC that all nations have always been present, regardless of they arrived OOC. It would be a bit odd if say France had only exchanged ambassadors with Poland for the first time in 1954, for example.

OOC: I know, I've been here for awhile :V
This is mainly for people looking for an extended embassy or whatever. Mainly just for diplomatic cables to Galich.

OOC: I'm losing track of who is who, but these threads are proliferating.

Moved these posts to a temporary sticky and thread so it reaches a mass audience.

Another note:

If a top secret message is not addressed to your nation, you probably cannot read it from an IC perspective - and certainly wouldn't respond to it. Secret messages conventionally look like this:

TOP SECRET

or
CONFIDENTIAL COMMUNIQUE

An exception to this rule might be if one of the nations who originally received the message shares it with your nation.

Bumping this for the resurgence of the embassy establishment thread with [MENTION=1700]Sri Siva[/MENTION] & @ - it should be assumed IC relations/basic embassies are established with all nations unless stated otherwise. I understand your threads establish various levels of cooperation to apply for elevation, but the basic level of embassy should be near universal as default.

I am also guilty of this. Should we at least use the threads to list IC that are represented abroad and foreign missions in the capital?

I am violently opposed to establishment of embassies in this day and age unless you so happen to be a small country (for example Micronesia) or former dependency that formed its own country (i.e. Eastern Cape) if its explicitly requested ICly. It just looked too silly in the context of our timeline that I didn't bother requesting the embassy to be established since I read this thread.

Valid point.
