In an open letter to Palatine-Viceroy Newton von Uberquie, Lord Henry has issued his congratulations to the Palatinate of Uberquiesenberg upon the occasion of Die Schöpfung, Uberquiesenberg’s annual celebration of the state’s creation.
In the letter, Lord Henry “sends [his] regards to you and your nation in celebration of three years of lasting success.”
Throughout the letter, Lord Henry reminds of the two nation’s shared history. Both states were Mercian colonial possessions in 2016, and the heads of state of the nations both served in highly relevant Mercian offices including First Minister and Deputy First Minister.
The two also collaborated during the Vote of No Confidence (VoNC) of Alejandro Whyatt, and during negotiations between the Micronational Economic Group and the Bank of Mercia.
In recent times, bilateral collaboration has increased. During Lord Henry’s tenure as Acting Chair and later Chair of the Grand Unified Micronational, von Uberque has served as Vice Chairman.
Uberquiesenberg’s first foreign relations – excluding those with former colonial father Mercia – were with the Commonwealth. The Treaty of New Halyards established Uberquiesenberg as being militarily protected by Esse, and it also established the County of New Halyards as jointly-administered territory between the two states.
On a personal level, Lord Henry and von Uberquie have also been working on a musical project dubbed The Diarchy, with an album to be released October 28th.
Lord Henry, in the letter, regards Uberquiesenberg as “the Commonwealth’s closest friend,” and points to the consistent collaboration between the two states as evidence. He rallies that the “bond between our states has grown beyond my initial expectations.”
Die Schöpfung is a national holiday in the Palatinate, and it marks the date of establishment of Uberquiesenberg.
