Finding its place in the world: Fortland to strengthen ties with Deltaria, Keymon and Lourenne

President Geoffrey Briggs on his way to pay a state visit to Deltaria

When the Republic of Fortland was founded nearly 4 years ago, sceptics doubted whether it really had any chance of becoming a figure on the world stage. The evidence so far, though, is that it is quietly building links with a number of other nations, and is even signing treaties with and being officially recognised by a few.

A relationship is now opening up with Deltaria, despite a difficult start. At the time of writing, President Geoffrey Briggs is travelling by motorboat to Deltaria on a state visit, where he is expected to meet President Manosindus Von Thaller and other leading officials in the Deltarian regime.

Fortland's strong relationship with Keymon, which has already led to a mutual defence pact, is also further deepening, and a formal Diplomatic Treaty is in the works.

An agreement has also been signed with Lourenne to allow Lourenne to use Fortland to operate a small refuelling station, in return for an annual fee and protection.

BREAKING NEWS: REBELS CAPTURE FORTLAND

Reports are just coming in that Fortland has been stormed by a group of armed men using speedboats, jet skis and a helicopter.

President Geoffrey Briggs, who was on his way to visit Deltaria, has cancelled his trip in order to attend to the crisis, and has declared a State of Emergency.

We are still unclear as to the whereabouts and the welfare of several Fortland citizens believed to be on the platform at the time. This includes Geoffrey's wife, Shirley, who is the First Lady, and their adult children, Henry and Elizabeth.

King Colby declares himself ruler of the "Kingdom of FortWorld"

The new "Kingdom of FortWorld"

A dodgy Baltusian businessman with previous convictions for fraud, tax evasion and demanding money with menaces has delivered an internet webcam broadcast in which he announces he has taken over Fortland, renamed it the "Kingdom of FortWorld" and declared himself "King Colby".

"King Colby", or Colby Lee as his real name is, goes on to explain his plan is to use the platform in order to host an internet server which, out of reach of the national laws of other governments, will host a series of gambling and extreme pornography websites.

King Colby also uses his speech to promise to honour Fortland's existing international treaties and relationships, and to appeal to the governments of Terra to recognise his new state and enter diplomatic relations with him.

On a darker note, at the end of his speech he says he is holding three members of the Briggs family captive and will not release them unless he is paid a 200,000 RCR (Rildanor Crowns) ransom.

GOTCHA!
BRIGGS FAMILY RECAPTURE FORTLAND


Image
King Colby (centre) and his captured mercenaries

With the aid of volunteers from the Knights of Fortland, the Briggs family recaptured Fortland during a surprise raid in the middle of the night, capturing all of the invaders and liberating their family members who had been kidnapped.

President Geoffrey Briggs has given an interview in which he condemns Colby Lee as "a fucking scumbag" and threatens to "give this bastard a real taste of what Fortlander justice looks like".

In the eyes of the Fortlanders, Lee's crime is much greater than that of the others, not only because Lee was their leader, but also because - as it has now emerged - Lee had been in the process of duping the Briggs family, and was in fact a citizen of Fortland, which technically makes him a traitor to his country.

It has emerged Lee lied to the Briggs family about who he was, denying his dodgy business past, and claiming instead to be a military historian named Francis Braithwaite. He had flattered the family, telling them he was interested in researching Fortland's history and writing a book about it. In response, they had invited him to stay with them on Fortland, and even awarded him Fortland citizenship. All the time, though, Lee had been building up his knowledge of Fortland's layout, and preparing his chance to seize it. When Geoffrey Briggs departed to visit Deltaria, he saw what he thought was the perfect opportunity to strike.

Following intense questioning, the 5 mercenaries who worked for Lee have been released. President Briggs has said he feels pity on them, describing them as "desperate, troubled men who found themselves mixed up with this bastard".

Lee, however, is being put on trial for "treason", and the President has warned "we will give him a fair trial, but this man's crime is severe, and we are considering the death penalty".

Lee's family in Baltusia are appealing to their government to intervene on his behalf.

Keymon Ministry of Defense Sends Soldiers to Fortland to Train Briggs Family

After the attempted invasion of Fortland by Colby Lee and a group of mercenaries, the Keymon Ministry of Defense has deemed it necessary to begin assisting the Briggs Family in arming and equipping them for combat as well as training them to be as good as soldiers.

The Ministry of Defense sent ten soldiers from the Home Defense Corps to train the Briggs Family in case of another attack. The Ministry of Defense also sent three machine gun emplacements and a stockade of weaponry to the family.

Alongside this came a request from the Ministry of Justice. The request reads:

Briggs Family, we know of the betrayal that Mr. Colby Lee committed and we understand the feeling of betrayal, however we must demand that you do not use the death penalty. Instead we encourage you either to imprison him for life or extradite him to Baltusia. We understand the immense betrayal you’ve experienced, but the death penalty will do no one any good.

Today, NCFL chairman Alban Bahr III has decided to send in $500,000 DLD worth of supplies, $500,000 DLD in cash, and 10-50 soldiers (which will have to be approved by King Briggs).

Fortland will be in need of supplies to stop any further attempts at invasion.

February 4474

Fortland agrees to forego death penalty on Colby Lee, offers prisoner transfer deal

Following an appeal from its close ally, Keymon, Fortland has agreed not to impose the death penalty upon the traitor and war criminal Colby Lee. Having detained him for some time, Fortland are now offering to release him to Baltusia on a "prison transfer" arrangement, meaning he would be expected to serve the remainder of his 30 year prison sentence in a Baltusian prison, instead of being held in captivity on Fortland.

According to inside sources, part of the reason Fortland wants to get rid of their prisoner is because he suffers from extreme flatulence, and this is causing annoyance to the other Fortland residents. One member of the Briggs family told us off the record that if Baltusia doesn't agree to the proposed prisoner transfer deal, "we might end up changing our mind and executing him after all".

Reports are also coming in that on several occasions, Lee has been subjected to disciplinary sanctions for the dubious infraction of "farting purposely". It is not known whether any other prison regimes around Terra prescribe punishments for this offence. Human rights activists and penal reform campaigners have expressed concerns. A report is also circulating that last week, Lee had his food ration halved for "endangering national security by attempting to set light to fart bubbles in the bath".


Fortland requests 3 "volunteer soldier-citizens" from Dolgava

Fortland has profusely thanked Keymon and Dolgava for their military aid. However, the country declined the Dolgavan offer of accepting between 10 and 50 soldiers, with President Geoffrey Briggs explaining that "to us, this would change the character of our community too much, and undermine our sense of national independence".

However, a request was made for Dolgava to offer 3 of its most experienced and well-trained commandos the opportunity to leave the Dolgavan army, and come to live in Fortland as Fortland citizens. President Briggs said "we need people who can help us defend ourselves, but we want them to be part of our community - to be one of us, as it were".
