Hello there!

First off - a huge apology for the amount of time it's taken me to respond to your e-mail! Which is massive. But my excuse is brilliant - I've been busy starting my own country.

Well, actually - it's *our* own country now.

Because yes - I have carefully considered your application and found you to be more than apt. In fact, you're one of the best I've got!

Well done, citizen!

I've been away for a while, travelling the globe, seeking assistance and advice and carrying out various diplomatic missions... but more of that later...

In the next couple of months or so, I'm going to be sorting out all sorts of very tricky issues... from our constitution through to law and order, and how we're going to establish international relations... I will, of course, need your help...

I'll be in touch soon, with more news, including details of the all-new, shiny website...

Until then, I have only one question: does anyone know what we could call this country...? I'm led to believe most countries these days have a name...

With thanks,
