Nation InformationEdit

On January 6, 2010 the Nation Information of Manzanita read:

Manzanita is a sizeable, highly developed, and ancient nation at 1019 days old with citizens primarily of Norwegian ethnicity whose religion is Norse. Its technology is first rate and its citizens marvel at the astonishing advancements within their nation. Its citizens pay extremely high taxes and many despise their government as a result. The citizens of Manzanita work diligently to produce Coal and Lumber as tradable resources for their nation. It is a mostly neutral country when it comes to foreign affairs. It will usually only attack another nation if attacked first. It believes nuclear weapons are necessary for the security of its people. Plans are on the way within Manzanita to open new rehabilitation centers across the nation and educate its citizens of the dangers of drug use. Manzanita allows its citizens to protest their government but uses a strong police force to monitor things and arrest lawbreakers. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first. Manzanita believes in the freedom of speech and feels that it is every citizen's right to speak freely about their government. The government gives foreign aid when it can, but looks to take care of its own people first. Manzanita will trade with other nations with questionable ethical treatment of their citizens but prefers to keep such trade agreements a secret.

Mostly Harmless AllianceEdit

According to ingame seniority, Espressoville joined the Mostly Harmless Alliance on March 24, 2007. However, this may be inaccurate since, according to ingame statistics, Espressoville joined the Mostly Harmless Alliance and founded Manzanita at the exact same time, something that is nearly impossible to accomplish. Regardless of when Espressoville did actually join the Mostly Harmless Alliance, he has been an important and loyal member for a long time, holding dozens of jobs.


Secretary of ProtectoratesEdit

After a long service as a diplomat, John Rocker (the then Minister of Babel Fish) hired Espressoville as the Secretary to oversee protectorates. During this tenure, Espressoville wrote or assisted in writing the protectorate agreements for the Armed Coalition of Valor (ACV), Guru Order (GO), Pirates of the Parrot Order (PPO) and several others.

Deputy Minister of Babel FishEdit

When John Rocker announced his departure as Minister of Babel Fish, both Espressoville and Blepo were given the choice of who wanted to be Minister and Deputy Minister. Espressoville chose Deputy as he felt Blepo who was then the Secretary of Aqua Relations, had better communications with other alliances.
