The Department for Foreign Relations of the Shorewellese Empire was founded right since the start due to the need of diplomatic relations with other nations. In the months following the start of the Empire of Shorewell, the General Assembly issued many times statements regarding the tightening of policies, requirements, and needs for diplomatic relations with other nation. An alliance, non-aggression, and mutual recognition can only be granted through a signing of a treaty. However, the Empire does grant state of friendships with other nations without the signing of a treaty, usually conducted through a declaration.

The Shorewellese Empire has friendly diplomatic relationships with many nations, and its doors are always open to more.

Foreign policy

The Shorewellese Foreign policy is a multitude of ideas and precedents set by the Monarch and government. It is rendered to be a rather strict policy by some, as it contains the ideology of domestic interests before international interests. Additionally, Shorewell is well-known to not grant alliances without a heavy interest or cooperation agreement with another nation. Mutual recognition is established with a variety of micronations, however, the nation must be deemed well established and well-off in diplomatic affairs.


Imperium is considered the possession of the imperial rank of Emperors. The Shorewellese Imperium ideology holds elevated view of the Emperor, as it finds that all Emperors should be able to trace recognition of their imperial rank from the Roman Emperors. Shorewellese Foreign policy heavily revolves Imperium and the method of recognizing other Imperial ranks. Multiple treaties have been signed with nations that claim to have Emperors, however, provisions of Shorewell recognizing the said status have not been commonly instituted, thus not granting recognition of the imperial rank even if the signatories are addressed as emperor's for the sake of protocol.

The Shorewellese Imperium ideology holds many resemblances with the Austenasian Imperial ideology.
