LAVRADA – Today, the Grand Republic and the North American Confederation officially signed a Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation. This milestone, which came after a conversation via forum PM and email between First Consul Jordan Brizendine and Prime Minister Rev. Joseph Marx, is a further step down the road of peaceful relations between the two nations, which would not be remarkable if it were not for a developing land claims crisis among them.

It all began in mid-2015 when the NAC gained a constituent state in east-central Missouri. As per Confederation custom, the nation summarily laid “quasi-claim” to the entire state, including the territory of the Delveran Heartland. When First Consul Brizendine learned of this, he contacted a citizen of the NAC who redirected him to Prime Minister Marx. A series of long communications delays ensued due to a Confederation government holiday, and Brizendine began to wonder if the Grand Republic’s concerns had been forgotten.

However, on October 2, the Prime Minister again contacted Brizendine, who responded with a proposal for a Treaty of Friendship. Marx approved, after assurances that such a document would facilitate the redress of Delveran grievances. Brizendine then submitted the treaty to the Delveran Council of Governors for a final vote of acceptance. The measure passed by unanimous vote, upon which the treaty officially went into force.

Brizendine and Marx have since engaged in a discussion to resolve the land claims issue, which is still ongoing.
