In one of the nation’s first press conferences, the Duke of Braemar called on Pavia’s neighbours to develop laws enabling discussion of joint initiatives to benefit the region.
On the coastline of the Lyrean Sea, his grace Cissonius the Duke of Braemar met with journalists to mark the release of the Nations of the Lyrean Sea map produced by the Bureau of Semiography.
The map shows the countries neighbouring Pavia and bordering the Lyrean Sea — Pavia, Griffin, Moloka, Phoenix, Amboise, Letos, Judea, Lambat and Mery.
“Our cherished neighbours’ commitment to cooperation is unwavering, in that we were able to unanimously agree on the name of these cherished waters, which the Pavian Coast Guard tirelessly protects”, the Duke said.
But he quickly turned his mind to the broader diplomatic situation in the region.
“I have spoken several times about the need for greater cooperation amongst our neighbours.
“Without the proper legal framework in place to facilitate future cooperation, as well as a framework to advance the mutual interests of the Lyrean Sea countries in collaborative solutions to common problems like infrastructure, industry and agriculture, we will simply flounder.”The Bureau of Semiography today released its Nations of the Lyrean Sea map, which the Duke of Braemar announced in a first-ever press conference.

When questioned by Tribune reporters about this, the Duke said that Pavia is in a unique position where its lands are cherished and beautiful. But these lands are not arable enough to grow all the essential crops needed to fully support its citizens.
“I call now on the Crown Prince to enter stages of multilateral discussions with a forum of the Lyrean Sea nations to outline exactly how it is we will all continue to work together”, he said.
A free trade agreement between countries is on the cards, to facilitate trade and develop a more prosperous Pavia.
The Duke pointed to a potential mutual relationship between Pavia and other nations where crops grown by the Pavian Farmers Association which are not available overseas are traded for goods not available in Pavia.
Although the Crown Prince, his supreme highness BritishWanderer the Duke of Bedford, has indicated his in principle support for the diplomatic course, it has not been considered by the remaining dukes.
“I will do my part to advance these discussions in the upper echelons of Pavian government”, the Duke of Braemar said.
“I strongly encourage our good friends in the governments of Lambat, Griffin, Mehri and Letos to work with our great Crown Prince in creating a safer, more prosperous Lyrean Sea.”
