Greetings, comrades! In solidarity with the working class of the entire universe, the International Workingpeople's Association is created today! The IWA will act as an organization for all of the leftist, socialist, and communist groups within the universe.

There are 2 components to the IWA - the first is party membership, and the second is national membership. Individual parties can join with the IWA in the effort to advance the cause of the People's Liberation, and receive the support and solidarity of the other members of the IWA. The goal of this is to foster a sense of leftist unity, and create a unified Popular Front to oppose the forces of bourgeois oppression, monarchical reactionaries, and of the fascists.

In addition, national entities can choose to enter the IWA. This involves:

*All nations who join the IWA may choose to join an associated defense pact. If they do not, the UMC will sign a separate, one sided defense pact with them.

*All nations in the IWA get access to the equipment jointly developed by the UMC or the WRT.
(Currently, that includes: Vanguard Tanks, Arditi Elite Powered Armor, Marauder Frontline Powered Armor, Unpowered Armor, Bulwark APC, Dominator Ground Support Aircraft, and Eagle Air Superiority Aircraft)

In addition, the UMC's Foreign Relations Office has announced the following steps:

*All nations in the IWA get preferential investment from the UMC's Foreign Development Office.

*All nations in the IWA get an additional support from the UMC in the form of military supplies.

The Venusian Communist Party requests party-level membership in the International Workingpeople's Association, to advance the cause of the laboring class on Venus and her external territories.

(the Venusian Communist Party is a party of the exiles from the UVSR and their descendants and primarily live offworld. They also enjoy some support on Venus in the artistic and intellectual fields, but have no seats in Parliament, where the National Labour Party dominates the socialist and leftist vote).

As a note on the current state of the IWA, it's had a significant push of resources into the TUPC - industrially and militarily. This has caused a 'thawing' of the authoritarian regime, which has begun to accept other leftist/socialist parties within the system - though the Worker's Party has retained control of the central government. (Essentially, it's becoming a little more in line with the UMC style of communism - though still mostly at the local level).

Military resources into the TUPC has been focused on defenses - Mattibean engineers have constructed a network of powerful defensive installations along the borders. Additionally, TUPC military forces are equipped with IWA military designs, a significant upgrade over their previous ones.

The military investment in the region is due to the view of it as a volatile and dangerous location - the TUPC has been invaded multiple times by major powers, and tensions in the area are especially high right now, with the Neo-Nam integration referendum - as well as the constant tensions with the Northern Thai Rebels. (OOC - which I believe are supported by Domuia now)

That would be correct. Though I suppose (although this would certainly cause a massive clusterfuck), I'm surprised TUPC and Northern Thailand haven't fought each again. They did so before the previous war, and Pacifica more or less cut ties with Northern Thailand. That was a huge change from us trying to be a helpful older brother and peacemaker between two nations we considered allies. Northern Thailand choosing to support the country that invaded them twice, over the country that is the reason they exist as an independent nation largely, we considered a massive betrayal.

Idk how relations with Cambodia and Burma are. Burma was super isolationist but would enter the Mobius sphere, while Cambodia was pretty grateful to us for liberating them and because of our shared history, but entered our sphere less so. Both have military and economic support from Pacifica.

Technically we offer the same to teh TUPC but I can't remember if they accepted; either way, we consider them an ally, pragmatically, but ideologically we understand why we aren't close(r)

If we're talking about influence I have economic influence in Cambodia and North Thailand with some companies and state owned projects operating there like the International Biking Association. I also have cultural programs like the Asterian Abroad Universities. Also the PPL has connections and manages elections in Northern Thailand.

Also just wondering what makes one player have a sphere of control in these regions over others. Sybus and I both have a prescence in Northern Thailand and you and Matt both have ties in Southern Thailand so I'm just wondering what makes a certain player decide the developments in these regions over another player?

I do, I've been the judge or cojudge for everything in Southeast Asia for a bit, including all these little influence-things you mention.

Yeah, I've been busy down there. If anyone ever does end up needing to do stuff in SEA over the next two months, I can pass off the info.

The PCG would be interested in a dialogue with the IWA about a closer working relationship, without necessarily wishing to become a member.

We believe there are a number of common goals held by the IWA and the PCG and feel that collaboration on these fronts would be of great benefit to all parties.

As for our reluctancy to (as yet) seek membership, our reputation for impartiality and neutrality in foreign affairs has bought us a great deal of goodwill, which has often been used to good effect in the past, in bringing disputing parties together where others nations who might be perceived (either rightly or wrongly) to have an agenda might have failed to do so.

As you can appreciate, membership of an organisation that positions itself not just for something, but actively against something else (namely certain political and cultural ideologies), might be seen to compromise that reputation for impartiality, as it could be argued that we would then be in service to a particular agenda.

I'm sure you can appreciate that the integrity of this continued perception of impartiality is obviously very important to us, but we still very much welcome the opportunity to work closely with your member nations in helping them achieve their own domestic goals.

We look forward hearing from you.

Regards,

The PCG.

The Union of Mattibean Communes is beginning to send engineers and technicians to assist the Brazilian Socialist Union in the construction of border defenses, along their borders with the Federal Republic of Brazil and the Empire of Brazil. Resources from the IWA's defense fund will be used to assist in this production.
