    We thank in advance the nations which will be attending:
    • The Syrixian Empire, and their plenipotentiary Mateuz Szymanski.
    • The Constitutional Monarchy of Draconics, and their plenipotentiary Crescent Killer.
    • The United Kingdom of Sasten, and their plenipotentiary Resard Ervas.
    • The Lancerian Empire, and their plenipotentiary Arno Barre.
    • The Monarchy of Guslantis, and their plenipotentiary Ryo Koizumi.
    • The Majestic Twelve of Haor Chall, and their plenipotentiary Ion Dardanus.
    • The Triple Federation of Trinster, and their plenipotentiary EVA-MET-01 "Dec".
    • The Marä of Naizerre, and their plenipotentiary Mbo Mgi.
    Plenipotentiaries may lodge at the Myenlyya Resort free of charge until the meeting has concluded. Plenipotentiaries may also receive breakfast, lunch, and dinner free of charge.

    However, plenipotentiaries are also expected to comply with the resort's code of conduct as well as domanial and federal law. Violations of such will result in their respective punishments unless and until agreements are reached regarding their circumvention.

    As stated before, the summit will occur at the Conference Hall of Myenlyya Resort on May 1 @ 15:00. We hope that all nations of the summit will discuss issues cordially and without disparagement. The decisions of this meeting have the potential to impact the Association's future proceedings, so we must handle it as seriously and professionally as possible.

    We once again thank the members participating in the summit and thus participating in META's future. Synergy is our strength.

    Ryo was the newest Governor in Guslantis, with her position being created alongside the province of Aeaea itself. She had fair skin with long jet black hair, and she decided on this special occasion to wear a white dress with light blue flowers. She was excited to be representing Guslantis at this summit, and she was ready for the change it would bring, hopefully to her province.

    The inside of her blue heels clicked together as she stood up to address the representatives. She adjusted her black framed glasses and then began to speak.

    "When Guslantis joined META, our intentions were abundantly clear. With one of the largest and most successful technology corporations with our borders, within the city that I gratefully serve as the leader of, Guslantis hopes to positively impact the trade and economics of our neighbors on Meterra and all of Eras.

    For those not aware, Guslantis recently agreed to let Thomas, our largest tech company, build its own city of the future in the newly-created province of Aeaea. We're currently in phase two of constructing this monumental effort. What this means for META is huge. Being at the forefront of such a massive technological undertaking, being able to have an administrative office, or even a headquarters within a city where the buildings are still being built, and location can be our choosing, not decided by what free lots are available.

    We've coined this proposal 'METAplex' and as we proceed with the discussions of offices, I hope that this is something that the members can think about. We also look forward to discussing what makes us great. Our sense of synergy.

    We'd like to thank the government of Demescia for our invitation, and hope this summit brings out the best of META," she said before taking a seat.

    Wearing a non-descript grey suit, and of average build and height, Ion Dardanus could easily have been mistaken for a minor functionary from any nation, if he hadn’t been for the sign on the table in front of him. The only concession to colour he wore was a small metallic red lapel pin, in the shape of the Majestic Twelves sigil. He nodded politely as Ryo Koizumi spoke and waited for her to sit before speaking. “On behalf of the Majestic Twelve, I would like to thank Premier Okeke and the nation of Demescia for hosting this summit. There is a great deal to discuss and I believe that what we can accomplish here today could come to be seen as a historic moment in the development of META as a force for stability and prosperity in Meterra and beyond.”

    He paused and looked around the room at the assembled delegates before continuing, “some of what we must address is contentious and whilst we may not all agree on every detail, I hope that we can all look to see the long-term benefit of META and find common ground on which to stand united. Establishing a secretariat and creating a physical presence for META will be an important milestone, whatever else we can agree here today."

    “It has already been said, that synergy is our strength, and I must tell you that this idea resonates deeply within the culture of Haor Chall. On behalf of my nation, I hope we can work together to build a brighter future for us all,” he finished, taking his seat again.

    The rotunda was adorned with lurid impressionist paintings and white stucco patterns against the ochre walls. Muqarnas vaulting and a warm chandelier hung over the delegates, giving setting to the annular table where they sat. The blinds of the large curved windows filtered the sunlight of the afternoon.

    Sinjorin’ Kayode sat in a minimalistic black–and–ecru deskchair directly facing the door. She looked around at the delegates that had already arrived, clasping her hands. She wore a fuschia blouse, with coral lipstick and rich chestnut foundation to match. With an amiable smile, she greeted the delegates:

    “Welcome to Demescia, welcome to Omoxoje, and most importantly welcome to META’s first summit. We’re glad to have you all for this crucial meeting on META’s future as an organization. I, first and foremost, agree with the sentiments of Haor Chall. The decisions foreshadowed will be major and controversial, but I believe they are decisions we are ready to make. Topics on the table include the establishment of secretariats, which thank Guslantis for bringing up, and the applications of a few controversial countries such as McMasterdonia. The former I think we can unanimously agree on; the latter not so much. But I’m positive we can resolve with fairness, prudence and of course, our radiating brand of synergy.

    “So that we get to know each other a tad better before we get into the salted grits, I would like for you all to introduce yourselves: tell us about yourself, about your country, and about what your country wants to achieve or gain from this meeting, just as what Sinjor’ Dardanus and Sinjorin’ Koizumi have done.

    “I’ll start off: I’m Nnenna Kayode, an Rango Roza recipient and an Omoxoje native. I’ve always had a keen interest in the development and betterment of all peoples and not just my own, so it is an honor to represent Demescia, one of the most diverse nations in the world, in a summit that will better the lives of so many people and the economies of many countries. My hope, as well as my superior Okeke’s, is to keep META on the right track to becoming a global household name and a successful fellowship of Meterran countries.”

    Notboss raises his talon, "It is a pleasure to.meet you all. My name is Notboss Dragonking the king of Draconics. Our plans are to open ourselves to the world as we have stayed isolated on our own most of the time, but my citizens have been pushing to open up to other countries and we decided to come to META. We want to share our ideas of human rights but as well as environmental protection to better the world. Our country has become 90% reliant on green energy and renewables. I will be representing my country and so will Crescent Killer. Thank you for allowing me to introduce myself and I say it is an honor to be in another country." Notboss finishes and smiles at everyone keeping his draconic tail close to his legs.

    “Thank you Sinjorin’ Kayode. I suppose I could say a little more about myself and Haor Chall,” Ion said dryly, “We are a more insular people, not particularly open and slow to trust… But, I am here for a reason. I have served in the foreign service on behalf of the Majestic Twelve for many years and travelled to most parts of Meterra in that time, I will say no more about myself except that I have seen first-hand why an organisation like META holds such importance for our collective future.”

    “And the Council of Majestic Twelve, who have long preferred isolation, recognise that it is no longer a viable position for us to hold. We are a wealthy country, with many businesses which span the world and which already operate in all of the countries present here today. But this is not the reason why I am here.” He paused, nodding at Kayode with a thin smile, “We have already had some debate on whether META is purely an economic organisation or not. I am here on behalf of Haor Chall, because we now recognise that the purely economic relationships we have with the rest of the world are not enough. Geo-economics, the level at which those in this room must deal with, inherently mixes the political with the economic. META is a path to do so for the collective benefit of all, to avoid the risks of trade wars or real wars, to leverage our economic strength together for stability, security and prosperity for all. And so that is why I am here, a vision that I hope you all share too.”

    Arno Barre was young for his office, but confident. Ambition and a bit of luck had seen him rise through the diplomatic corps of the Lancerian Empire and into the earliest members of the Lancerian delegation to META. Today he stood at the first META summit, a little bit proud, but otherwise focused.

    "The Lancerian Empire is honoured to be in esteemed company. The nations gathered here today form the backbone of one of the most intriguing and potential-filled organizations through not only Meterra, but the whole of Eras.

    I have dedicated my life as a representative of the Empire and its efforts to better itself and its world. From META's earliest days we have recognized the amazing opportunity to do that through our active and in depth participation. I am here to seize that opportunity for the benefit of all who sit here today.

    We have many important issues to tackle, some controversial, but I have a firm belief that the company I share this floor with are nations that seek the same ultimate goals of cooperation and peace. With that in mind I rest easy, knowing that progress will be made in these next days.

    May these talks be fruitful, the future bright, and the standards set high."

    Resard Ervas was hardly new to this sort of event; he had been Minister of Foreign Affairs for eight years before the King split his position and gave him the exclusive remit of managing Sasten's interactions with META. Some of the pundits in Azarai had seen this as a demotion, but he himself did not, and if King Renadt had thought so when he made the move he certainly didn't show it. The move did lighten his workload though, something he was thankful for, and it allowed is mind to focus exclusively on the biggest task he'd had in his entire career. That this may be that task's most important conference since its foundation certainly weighed on his mind.

    "Some of you may recognize me from earlier interactions, or so I should hope. For those of you who have only recently joined this organization, I am Resard Ervas, Minister of Meterran Affairs in the United Kingdom of Sasten. It's a post the King created quite recently, intended to give this organization the time and effort it deserves to be successful. I am not new to this group however; I have had the pleasure of being a part of META since the very beginning, and indeed my own signature can be seen on the founding document. It has been wonderful to see it grow from those humble origins not long ago, and it is an honour to see all the new faces at this meeting.

    "As Mr. Dardanus has said, it has become clear that this organization can no longer remain the purely economic association we were at our founding, we must branch out and venture into the murky realm geopolitics if we wish to remain successful on the world stage, as well as create a more meaningful presence for this organization in and of itself. It is my hope that we can find a clear and agreeable means to do so in this conference. The world changes with each passing day, and we most change with it."

    Mbo Mgi had served Naizerre for more than 30 years. Born into the Bëmbëngö Kala tribe, Mbo had firstly served as a childhood servant in the household of the Old Chief, Jafari Biya, mainly for one of his sons. The Kala tribe were peddlers of information first and formost, being based high in the central Naizerri mountains, and many young Kala served in the households Naizerri chieftens, funnelling information back to the tribe.

    Mbo had slipped away from the Old Chief's employ around the time of their 15th birthday, and from there entered the service of Naizerre's intelligence agency, before taking a forward step into diplomatic service during the asendency of Mboto Jones. Surviving the chaos of his fall, Mbo had brokered a political alliance between the Kala and a number of smaller tribes, becomming a powerful player in the post-Mboto Jones landscape. Leveraging this new found power into a cabinet position, they now found themselves as Naizerre's Minister of Foreign Affairs, under High Chief Jardim. Whilst not ideological bedfellows with Jardim's coalition, Mbo got on well with the High Chief.

    Mbo began with a small cough, the lithe ambeni leaning forward to address the summit. "Forgive Naizerre's recent tardiness. An internal issue meant our attention was elsewhere, but now we are pî again. That is to say, we are awake."

    Mbo looked around, before continuing. "Naizerre would like to echo the thanks offered by other Marä's present to our îtä koli and îtä wali from Demescia. It is a marvelous achievement. We also welcome those Marä amongst us that have recently joined META. Naizerre - and myself personally - look forward to working with you."

    "There are a number of issues present before us that we together shall be required to address. From controversial applications to matters of grave importance, and many inbetween. I look forward to hearing more from the Guslantians about this METAplex, and whether their plan has in mind further satelitte complexes in other META Marä, such as Sasten in the north, or any of the central Meterran Marä."

    "We also echo the words of our îtä kulä, Sasten, in that META must branch out from its cultural and economic beginnings. Bringing further Marä into META should be a priority, as well as increasing our efforts to standardise regulations - or if that is not possible, then looking to mutually recognise products and services offered by Marä of META throughout the organisation. We look forward to pursuing these goals, and in offering a further outward focus, based on positive relations with likeminded Marä, such as Skanda, or on Craviter and Kian."

    Mbo finished, their speech concluded, and took a sip of water, pointedly looking towards the Syrixians as they adjusted the broach on their robes, a relic from Motarä dating to before the Syrixian occupation of the island. Relations had improved, but the message was clear. Naizerre remembers.

    “I’m glad we’re all able to find a common ground, at least in terms of interests and purpose,” Sinjorin’ Kayode beamed. “I find it to be true that the Association is to evolve from its roots, but the extent of that evolution can be discussed later. For now, we have an immediate need that we must attend to: the applications for membership to the Association.”


    The smile of hers faded away. “Some such as McMasterdonia and the Somaad have proven to be controversial, while others such as Midir have been ignored for months. Demescia is of the opinion that McMasterdonia should be entered into the Association, at least after they finish their drama with Sutherland. The same with Plembobria and Crilalia. We also believe that the Somaad’s entrance into META would prove economically beneficial to both parties.”

    Governor Koizumi stood and responded.

    "While we agree with most of Demescia's points, there are a few points where our opinions diverge," she began.

    "The first is concerning Somaad. We do not want Naizerre's voice to fall on deaf ears. Guslantis does not support the use of slave labor in any of its products, and we surely do not want to set the precedent of allowing nations involved in this practice into the organization. We would like this addressed before we vote on their application," she said.

    "The second is McMasterdonia. We have to remember that we are first and foremost an economic organization. McMasterdonia is an economic powerhouse. While there is definitely conflict within the McMasterdonian province of Sutherland, it is not something to hold back membership on, especially with how much of a buffer our economies can provide to offset any costs the McMasterdonian economy spends to bring the province back under the crown. Will our economies see a dip? Most likely. Will our organization be mocked by other nations? Possibly, but we can push forward. Doing something like this would crumble the organization that many of our other alliances have, but META is strong together. We must not let the short-term shock distract us from the long-term gain," she continued.

    "I'm sure someone will mention that we are obligated to aid McMasterdonia in the event they were attacked. For those that don't recognize the province as a nation, an attack from within would be a civil war, surely something any nation would aid through medical supplies and food. For those who do recognize the province, my advice would be to provide medical and food supplies to both parties, as each would need your assistance, only aiding McMasterdonia would be against your own government stance on Sutherland," she concluded before taking her seat.
