His Most Serene and Gracious Majesty, James II, Emperor of the Ruby Kingdom, King of Belestra, King of Salmus, etc., etc., has commanded me to convey the following message to the Sovereigns and Peoples of Europa:
At the request of Our Loyal Subjects, memorialized and witnessed by a Petition of the Barons and Commons assembled in the Imperial Parlement, We have judged it most right and proper to join the Region of Europa. We offer Our sincerest Salutations and Best Wishes to All other Nations in Europa and elsewhere and Our Best Wishes for Peace and Prosperity in the New Year.
x JACOBUS II, IMP. ET REX."
Walther von Aaland, Duke of Palmon
His Imperial Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.
