I advise everyone who RPs with EEE to read this.

I RP some pretty ambitious conversion statistics. This is not unreasonable. My nation was founded by a small group of Jesuits. The Society of Jesus is the spiritual shock troopers we send in. A passing knowledge of Jesuit history with validate this.

The Jesuits were (in)famous for their unbelievable ability to convert. They were the most educated Europeans of their time, exceptionally loyal, exceedingly well-organized, and extremely effective evangelicals. All accounts of the Society of Jesus praised their priests for their notorious intelligence. In fact, the records which state this most are Lutheran and Anglican propaganda. Protestants often claimed that Jesuit priests had been granted such unbelievable intellect from the Devil himself. So, at the height of Catholic-Protestant hatred, no one denied the Society's effectiveness, intellect, or education.

EEE is a modern nation with educational and communications systems far exceeding the 16th century. We can and do make armies of these priests. The Jesuits were the driving force of the Counter-Reformation. Fifty years after Luther, the RCC was near extinct on the banks of the Mediterranean. One hundred years after Luther, Protestantism was on the verge of collapse on the banks of the North Sea and the Baltic. The Jesuits saved Catholicism in Europe and pretty much single-handedly spread the faith to the Americas, Africa, and Asia.

The Jesuits were undeniably the most effective converters in global history. Their success exceeds Islam's. (And the Society of Jesus didn't use scimitars or any other weapon to fuel their success. Much.) In fact, Comrade Lenin overtly copied the SoJ's uber-centralized organization in his Communist Party and created a similarly effective conversion apparatus.

No one doubts EEE's piety. Our education and religion budgets are enormous. Our population growth is absurd. In a RP decade, the Annex will be Catholic. (Our resources obviously far exceed the SoJ's in the 1500s.) We send in damn effective priests to convert. The Franciscans and Dominicans mostly stay put. The Society of Jesus is frighteningly effective. Rasvidi beware.

Summary: The Homeland is Catholic. The Annex will be Catholic. Norateos is on its way. Hijjma will be 20% Catholic when we abandon it (in 5 RPyears). Jesuit history is awesome. Don't debate this.

I support this. He does indeed have a large religion budget, and pretty much every christian denomination is notorious for missionary efforts and such. All because some woman 2,000 years ago tried to hide an affair from her husband...

EEE, I would STRONGLY suggest that you put this on the Database. No one will debate with you about a historical fact that is TRUE, and if they do, they answer to ME!!!

I say that it is only logical that EEE's method of diplomacy would have religious connotations. And I have RPed as such, with EEE holding a strong hold in religion of Oscalantine. I dunno how they will be able to travel to Norateos when there is no trade occuring with Noratians and Heborians (that's about to change, but still...), but I guess some people are more determined than others. I see no flaw in this, but put this in the database!!! Make sure that no one challenges it because you didn't update this into database.

Admins, can you transfer this to the Edesu database? I don't believe I can.

One more thing. Obviously, real history transfers poorly to our RP. I still feel that we need a Rome. I would like to think Roma is a district within Maynilla, just as Vatican City is within RL Rome. (I feel it would be too odd for the Vatican to be surrounded by communism, and KI is as Catholic as we are.)

Here's the catch: NO Harming Rome. I don't want anyone (Rasvidi) nuking the Vatican or doing absurd Dan-Brownesque terrorist RPs in Roma. We would need a gentleman's agreement (SoC mandate) to make Rome off-limits. Rome would peacefully sit within Maynilla and never RP anything.

I suggest this because I think it would be nice to know where all of my cardinals go. If Roma will quickly become certain atheistic nations' nuclear testing area, I would rather imagine Rome exists in a little known location. (Papal secret? I actually like this plan.)

Why would Rasvidi leave a religious city off-limits simply because it is religious? You know their attitude about religion...

EDIT: Moved to your database, btw.

I'd rather not officially put Rome on the map if it will likely be obliterated. Therefore, I guess Rome's location will someone be known by a billion Catholics but impossible for anyone else to discover.
