Foreign affairs are important. In fact its the only job that a CP actually has to do.
This is why my primary focus, almost to the exclusion of everything else, is exactly that. As CP my job is to defend our interests abroad, ensuring that our allies are true and that we are true to our allies.
Basically lip service and a lot of it. I will rim, fellate and otherwise perform any acts with the tongue required on anyone to protect the eUK.
However, while making a good impression on allies and other nations where we have an interest is the CP's only real job, that does not make it only the CP's job. Every single citizen of the eUK is an ambassador to other countries. When you make friends with a player from abroad, you broaden your horizons, and you broaden the reach of the eUK's positive image and influence. Any player do this, without need of a title or being asked to do so.
This is me asking you though, if you go out onto other countries IRC channels, or comment on their articles or forums, and make even one friend from another country during my term. Then you are contributing to make a lasting positive effect on the eUK's foreign affairs.
Alliances are all about connections between players. The more connections we have with our allies and other nations, the stronger that our bonds become and so the stronger our country becomes!
Anyone seeking to get out there and communicating with foreign players can talk to my Ministry of Foreign Affairs for guidance. They will be able to recommend places to open dialogues with players from other countries, and how to go about forging links with players from these nations.
Part of their role is to translate what is going on upon the global stage into what that means to the everyday player. If and when it is required, myself, my ministers and their staff will publish articles to clarify events. It is crucial for the eUK perspective on the changing New World is presented to our players, and this is the main job for my Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
My Ministry of Defence will not see much change from mwcerberus', I believe they have performed admirably. The communication especially has been top notch, and I would like to see this frequency and quality of MoD publication to continue!
In war it is also important to remember that every single eUK player is an ambassador for the country. People are watching and they do notice when you go and fight for them. I especially love to see the flags of our allies in the top 5 fighters, and even in the avatar borders of players currently fighting. When you go and win a Battle Hero medal, win a spot in the top 5 fighters or just contribute your influence to an ally's battle, you are showing that the eUK cares for and fights for her allies.
At the core of all international relationships in eRepublik is the players of different countries fighting for each other for mutual benefit. So remember, when you want to dump a billion damage in a UK battle at 80% to win True Patriot medals, you're depriving your country of prestige and glory it could win abroad!
There's nothing radical about the policies in this article, its harnessing essential metagame facts that already exist. Its just a matter of making players aware of what a large effect they can have globally, and encouraging them to maximise their positive impact!
