I'll post the photos of both HQ (there's one also in Tarajan City) in the first thread.
Also, I welcome all of you in this new organization (and I thank Antanares for the wonderful HQ of course!).
Only one thing, Eurussia: for your admission, are you referring to the small island you belong south of Orzhov?

Yes. That has a duchy status within my empire, I just don't have a name for it yet. Its powers as a duchy yields like the Autonomous Provinces of Spain, Provinces of Canada, US states, or UK devolved countries.
You may refer it for now as "Eurussian Duchy."

As you can read in the Article 15 of the Charter, the membership is reserved only to all those States holding land in the South Western continent and its islands, so, I cannot accept you in the Organization, sorry.
However, you can apply for the rank of Observer.
For the pact of cooperation, we have to wait for the first session of the Council to discuss the proposal, but I'm quiet sure that nobody will have any objection, since both organizations share the same goals.

Eurussian Membership

Post  Great Eurussia on Tue Jan 28, 2014 10:37 pm



Citing the announcement of the Joint Declaration of Friendship between the Eurussian Empire and that of New Tarajan that establishes a mutual understanding and stepping stone for the eventual re-establishment of our diplomatic relations, notwithstanding the fact that a bilateral treaty has yet to be established, the Imperial Government expresses its confidence that the safety of our future envoy/s can be ensured by New Tarajan, which hosts this organization.
Hence, the Eurussian Empire joins SOWESO, again.

Eurussia's Orenburg territory is located in the southwest. It'd be like if the USA joined a Pacific island organization because we have Hawaii.
