Luthori-Baltusia conflict Edit
In mid June 4659, the Luthori government invited representatives of the Baltusian government to discuss the recent threats the Baltusians had given the government of Luthori. This threats was in itself harsh criticism towards the recent passed HLC Reform Plan and that if those laws were not repealed, Baltusia would impose economic sanctions against Luthori and tell other nations at the World Congress to do the same, which they did. The Imperator and Prime Minister Pope William I did not take lightly of these threats and send the delegation away with a warning that if such sanctions were put on Luthori, they would retaliate with military force.
