These days everyone is saying that if things turn out a certain way, I'm leaving the country.

But I've decided instead of moving to another country, I'm going to create my own micro-nation and live there instead. :D

Would anyone like to apply for citizenship in ... (da da da da da dah!) ... The Soverign State of Insanity? ;)

Grand Duchess Lady Lunacie D'Mentia, ruler pro tem. :yes:

Sorry Duchess, but I don't accept any form of authority above me. So I will start a revolt. Viva la revolución! :D

The agenda is what's for dinner tonight. The cook has suggested breakfast.

The weather is lovely. It's raining on my left hand, it's snowing on my right hand, the sun is shining on my head, and the moon is just rising.

I think you'd love it here, but first I need to know what you can do for your country?

Are you asking to share Hermus's room with him?

Or you can have the one next door to it all to yourself.

Let me know what you decide.


Ruling is such a drag.

Love it. I could have my feet in the snow, my torso in a pleasant Mediterranean climate and my head in the sun!!!

Also, Hermus what alternatives are you offering. I'm not sure I'm supporting this revolt. I might go with the establishment. :cool:

Also are there lakes and mountains in your nation? If not I'm revolting. I want lakes and mountains and lots of squirrels.

And I want the right to veto everything!! :D

I veto the existence of the army though we do need the police. They give the best directions!! :yes:

Free hugs isn't good enough. I can get that already in Hyde Park (seriously, there are people standing there aways with a board that reads 'free hugs') :scratch:

Also I'm vetoing Dutch. It sounds too much like a language I should understand but just don't :D

Veto? You don't have the right to veto anything. You're not even a citizen yet.

You haven't explained what you can do for the country. Can you offer something more than free hugs? Without being un-PG13? :giggle:

Ah, but the title of Queen is much too snooty. The title of Grand Duchess is the perfect amount of snoot.


Happy to have you join. Chocolate is very important here. Very. Important. :)

If you were to be Chairman of Confections you'd need a committee to head.

Committees are nothing but trouble, they do nothing but argue. :(

Count of Confectional Cossetting? :scratch:

Chief Chocolate Taste Tester? :confused:

I think Missy was asking for me to be in charge of confections and providing chocolate for all your Grand Dutchess. Please spare her head she mean't no offense.

I agree committee's are trouble. How about Duke of Chocolate and all things sweet?

It's called The Sovereign State of Insanity. But you may call it Luna Land when speaking informally.

There is no question it is already the Best Nation in the Whole World, and with all these lovely new citizens it will only be better and better. :)

I do hereby bequeath and honor you with the title of Greyhound, Duke of Chocolate and All Things Sweet. :D

I believe I have a spare castle in the next valley over.

And as for that Little Missy, off with her head! ... unless she wants to be a citizen of The State of Insanity? It would be lovely if she would join us. :)

Great thinking. I like Machiavellian rulers. Instead of decapitating your enemies or banishing them, neutralize them by giving them positions of power within your hierarchy. Head of the army and police forces would be great. However, now I'm in power of course I can't be as kind as my words would suggest before I got in this position. So my first act would be to keep the water pistols... sort of... it will just be more like water cannons. And some pepper spray and rubber bullets will be extremely useful to in the Sovereign Police State of Insanity. All militaristic means will only be used to the greater power and glory of our beloved leader Grand Duchess Lady Lunacie D'Mentia of course.

Hermus
09-21-16, 03:09 AM
Oh and the free hugs will be implemented. Everyone who dares to challenge the Grand Duchess' power will encounter them. They will just be dealt out by a 2 meter tall, 150 kg heavy giant named Bubba and it will feel a lot like bones being crushed.

It would be my advise to the Grand Duchess to keep close relations with the "No F's given" society, since it is of the uttermost importance for a newly developing state to have strong diplomatic ties with the outside world.

Don't forget that your power is somewhat limited as I can overrule you when I deem it necessary. I will trust to your judgment to determine when water canon are necessary, and when water pistols will suffice. Not every problem is a nail looking for a hammer. Unless it's actually a nail of course. You can certainly use the water canon on loose nails.


Oh and the free hugs will be implemented. Everyone who dares to challenge the Grand Duchess' power will encounter them. They will just be dealt out by a 2 meter tall, 150 kg heavy giant named Bubba and it will feel a lot like bones being crushed.

If Bubba should harm anyone at any time he will be decommissioned and quite possibly vaporized. Or turned into a frog. We'll see.

Since every language is an official language, French is included. However you may only wear your tiaras on days with an "a" in the name.

What a kind and thoughtful offer. I do hope you'll agree that our association will rate an F for friendly. Which means I would also be happy to consult with you on any F-ing issues you may have.

It's very astute of you to mention that this is a true monopoly. How do you intend to power the utilities? I've always found hamsters to be reliable.

Be careful, m'lady. As your most loyal servant of course I would never do anything that is against your best interests as a ruler of the Sovereign Police State of Insanity. But don't forget that your power rests on a vast military and police apparatus. It would be a shame if those forces all of a sudden decided to act against m'lady's interests and replace her by the head of the military and police. Which happens to be.... me!

I will trust to your judgment to determine when water canon are necessary, and when water pistols will suffice. Not every problem is a nail looking for a hammer. Unless it's actually a nail of course. You can certainly use the water canon on loose nails.

I'm happy to use the water cannons against any 'loose nail' that might be present in the SPSI. My intelligence service is trained in finding loose nails and fastening them.

If Bubba should harm anyone at any time he will be decommissioned and quite possibly vaporized. Or turned into a frog. We'll see.

I'm not sure Bubba will take kindly to those words, m'lady. You seem to become a bit careless lately.

I choose my words most carefully, sir. As I pointed out earlier, this nation is a monopoly of one, and that one is the Grand Duchess Lunacie D'mentia. Perhaps you and Bubba would enjoy spending some time as fainting goats. I would be happy to provide you with that opportunity.

I continue to hope that we can maintain a good relationship between the military and the head of state as that is the bedrock of a great nation, is it not?

My troops will be more than happy to show uttermost loyalty to their grand duchess, m'lady. However, as you may understand everything has its price. My (wo)men would be more than happy to accept a pay raise of, let's say... 25 percent in exchange for their continuing support.

No water and electricity for you Hermus if you get too militant!!! :cool:

Great thinking. I like Machiavellian rulers. Instead of decapitating your enemies or banishing them, neutralize them by giving them positions of power within your hierarchy. Head of the army and police forces would be great. However, now I'm in power of course I can't be as kind as my words would suggest before I got in this position. So my first act would be to keep the water pistols... sort of... it will just be more like water cannons. And some pepper spray and rubber bullets will be extremely useful to in the Sovereign Police State of Insanity. All militaristic means will only be used to the greater power and glory of our beloved leader Grand Duchess Lady Lunacie D'Mentia of course.

My hamsters don't like hard labour. They only take management positions. :)

My utility plants will be powered by all the dutchies riding everywhere on their bikes..

Great, because if you threaten to cut off the water and electricity supply of my forces again, you will be the one doing hard labour!

My troops will be more than happy to show uttermost loyalty to their grand duchess, m'lady. However, as you may understand everything has its price. My (wo)men would be more than happy to accept a pay raise of, let's say... 25 percent in exchange for their continuing support.

That is fine and dandy. Since I'm not paying you or my military forces anything, adding 20 % is easy to do. That's for the men of course. The (wo)men get the full 25 % pay raise.

You do understand that a pay raise generally means you must pay higher taxes.

I'm not sure when these changes will actually take effect. I may have to raise taxes for everyone to pay for a new accountant. The last one embezzled from our treasury and we are working on his extradition.

My plea is as follows.

After I was promoted to General Hermus, head of army and police I did everything in my power to protect the honour and glory of our royal highness agrand Duchess Lunacie D'Mentia. I have been one of her most loyal supporters. In order to protect her position against disobedience and disrespect I've thrown lady Fuzzy in jail for not referring to the Grand Duchess by her proper title.

Unfortunately enough the Grand Duchess didn't have the political savvy to understand the importance of the army and police in protecting her. First she refused to pay them a proper salary. Later when Fuzzy escaped from jail with the help of the intruder Midnightstar escaped from jail, she refused to let me build a proper prison island.

I tried to manoeuvre Grand Duchess Lunacie to a safer position in which there isn't a a lot of damage that can be done to her. All out of concern for my Grand Duchess.

Hermus
09-22-16, 09:08 PM

It's not my role to advice you anymore. The only thing I have to say is that under my rule I will make sure the first thing citizens will learn is how to address me with proper respect. We could have made an example out of Fuzzy, making sure that citizens forever know that they should immediately learn the proper titles for her highness the Grand Duchess.

This was never about any deed by Fuzzy as an individual. It was about making sure that the citizens collectively will bow their heads in fear for the superior might of Grand Duchess Lady Lunacie D'Mentia.

As the wise adviser to the aristocratic Borgia family Niccolò Machiavelli once wrote:

“It is much safer to be feared than loved because ...love is preserved by the link of obligation which, owing to the baseness of men, is broken at every opportunity for their advantage; but fear preserves you by a dread of punishment which never fails.”

You have failed to be feared and therefore as soon as your citizens will see the chance to advance their own power and material wealth your rule will be crushed.

Your job was only to command your troops. It was not to command your Grand Duchess or comment on my qualifications to rule this micro-nation.

Sooner or later you will taste their wrath.

That is a false dichotomy. It is the root of many of the problems in other nations.

A good ruler does not have to choose between fear or love in order to assure her citizens that she is quite sincere in her desire to make this a safe place and a good place to live.

I'm not sure that helping Hermus to escape was actually such a kindness to him. But the deed is done and he will now make of his life what he chooses without any help or hinderance from the Soverign State of Insanity or myself.

signed, Lady Lunacie D'Mentia, ruler of the Soverign State of Insanity

That is a false dichotomy. It is the root of many of the problems in other nations.

A good ruler does not have to choose between fear or love in order to assure her citizens that she is quite sincere in her desire to make this a safe place and a good place to live.

Only those who are comfortable with my philosophy of rule need stay here. Others are free to find a home that suits them better.

There is no false dichotomy involved. To quote Machiavelli again:

Fear and love can hardly exist together

I'm already on my island. However, there is a boat coming every now and then that collects the letters I've written to different people. You can be stubborn, but if you will join me on the island after being banished I'll hate to say I told you so.

Well, I'm already on the watch list so if anyone ends up in/back in the Grand Duchess's jail I can't help anyone else escape :lol:

And who is Machiavelli to claim that ONLY one or the other is possible? Is he God? :eyebrow:

He certainly is not the Grand Duchess and Ruler of the State of Insanity, and I will hear no more about him. :rolleyes:

Am I stubborn or am I consistent? I would say the latter rather than the former.

Your disagreement with my policies and philosophies indicates that I did not interview you extensively enough before giving you the job. I generally do not repeat my mistakes. :D

I'm confused. Do we have two sovereign nations of insanity now? One ruled by the grand duchess and one ruled by general Hermus? :scratch:

More importantly, who charges lower taxes and has better public transportation?:eyebrow:

I still rule the Soverign State of Insanity. Hermus just has an island. :umm1:

It's a very lovely island with sharks swimming in circles around and around it. :)

I don't know the state of his transportation or taxation systems. :scratch:

I never get followed to the boat though, I give your police force cups of tea that make them fall asleep and I'm at the boat place and back before they wake :p

You have not done anything illegal according to the law of the State of Insanity.

But sometimes we must be cruel to be kind in order for the other person to learn a good lesson.

They would have invited you to have high tea with the Grand Duchess so she could evaluate the threat for herself.

Since that isn't necessary, Lady Lunacie has a selection of sweets from Greyhound's confectionary castle sent to your home, along with two new catnip mice for your fur friends. She hopes you will enjoy your treats.

Welcome Peripatetic and Estelle. Please make yourselves at home. Would you prefer to move into an abandoned castle some distance from town, a house in town, or a cabin in the woods? Of course, there's also camping and a family that builds lovely treehouses.
