Official GIU Government Factbook in relation to ongoing territorial dispute


Origin.

GIU diplomats discovered that a foreign claim had been laid on a previously neutral territory a short distance from our southern coast. Diplomats initially reacted with shock, especially since the island apparently had a military base, fully outfitted with missiles. This was particularly worrying, since the base is within range of most of GIU's cities, encompassing about half the population. The panicked diplomats quickly pressed their own claim on the island, which is slightly closer to GIU than to the nation which now occupies it militarily.


Attempts to settle.

GIU diplomats proceeded to attempt a diplomatic solution, asking for the islands, and offering everything from money to compensate for the loss of the base to islands in GIU possession north of the occupying nation. All attempts to reason were refused. It was concluded that possession of the island offered only one benefit to the occupying nation, that being cutting off GIU from the southern ocean via our bay, and forcing us to instead travel several times over the distance around different coasts. The diplomats thus decided that further attempts at diplomacy would prove fruitless, and recommended the government take other action to secure the island.


Sanctions.

The GIU government has now decided, in response to the occupation of our sovereign territory, embargo any nation that recognizes any foreign claim to the island (Rostica). The bellow is the only officially recognized map of the island's ownership, and any nation that acknowledges any other map of the island will be embargoed.



Support.

The response chosen by the GIU government is to gather support, and tighten diplomatic pressure on the Levastok Pact to open negotiations. Initially, support was gathered in a list bellow, that list has now expanded to include whether or not nations are embargoing nations that recognize any other claim to the island other than GIUs, for simplicity sake, this is referred to as "the embargo" from now on. The nations under the embargo are also listen in the bellow table. The list has now also further expanded to include a list of nations participating in naval action against the embargoed nations, naval action is defined as exerting pressure on the offending nations via the use of naval vessels exercising freedom of travel, i.e. sailing through their territorial waters. This will be spearheaded by the Regna Loreau navy, with the complete support of the entire GIU fleet and all it's vessels, as well as any vessels donated for the operation by other nations.
