|have we always been on that map?
|# March 16th, 2005 8:45 PM kris|
|yes. i requested the location even. |

|why there? i think we look communist.
are we a part of protensia then?
we should have a revolution - seize power, change the name to United Dummocratic States of Blogistan, exile the existing govt of Proteinsia to juhl island. Then we can work to cultivate forces and build national pride, maybe forge an alliance with Ace-tria for an assault on Powerania. (we'll cede our claim to southern Jawamia to Acetria in exchange)
Who's with me?!?!

|Exile? Ah, you're too kind hearted and weak for this empire building, young Hat. Exile our enemies and they'll come back to harm us. We must eliminate them now. |
|# March 16th, 2005 9:06 PM james|
|i was thinking that we could use the conflict between us and the exiles to destroy the morale of other nations as they internally debate which of us is the "true government."
once so weakened, we hit.

|i don't think it's a good idea. it's more likely that our enemies will think WE are in a weakened state and they'll swoop in to grab some territory.
We will need some strong alliances. Perhaps we could send John to the Queen of Malkinburg and form an alliance through marriage there.

|john's existing wife's family is powerful, we need their support. she does, after all, control the tivo. |
|# March 16th, 2005 9:19 PM kris|
|ah, that's true. i forgot about that in my lust for power. I would send you, but i suspect she would make you live at her court, and Dummocratsia cannot spare you.
Much like Henry VIII, we are cursed with a lack of heirs for the marriage market.
|# March 16th, 2005 9:33 PM james|
|i was hoping that you could marry into the powerful longhorn mafia family, thus securing their "services" in eliminating opposing leaders |
|# March 16th, 2005 9:35 PM kris|
|hmmm, and then perhaps the boss could have an "accident" and i would have control of the entire organization.
of course you realize, their loyalty would be to me, not to Dummocratsia. Perhaps you should be worried about your own future ;-)

|Folks, are we not forgetting about my first born, the conveniently-named James II?
True, he's 18 months old, but it's never too soon to arrange a marriage for political fortune. I believe that phrase, in Latin, adorns the Dummocratsia Ministry of Domestic Affairs.
|# March 17th, 2005 8:34 AM kris|
|Oooh. I had no idea you had an heir. Sweet! We can betroth him to the heiress to Malkinburg! |

|A texas shaped cookie is sounding good. |
