Image and Foreign Policy

The Emperor as an active serving member of the Escovan Military, the Emperor chose to be crowned in full dress uniform, and is quite proud of his military backround. He expects his nobles and subjects to abide by the rules of the Empire, and those who do not receive swift excommunication. The Emperors Foreign Policy constitutes of friendship and then neutrality. As the Empire is a relatively young country, its Emperor does not wish to be entagled in foreign affairs. Instead of making allies with other nations, the Empire of Escova executes informal friendship. This means that both nations recognize each other as friends, but are not bound to each other's terms. The Empire of Escova promises to be faithful to all nations in a friendship, which means that peace shall be maintained with that nation as well as possible. Along with this pledge, the Empire of Escova hopes to maintain contact with these nations to accomplish goals of both nations, and other friendly acts/assistance
Emperor Garrett is a strong believer in the Christian faith, and has a moral code to fit his faith. The Emperor does not uphold violence, but nor does he condemm it, for if any person is at the risk of their liberties or rights threatened, the Emperor is willing to strike back at the oppressors. He believes that the people of his nation need to see him as a man of the people, and has made many laws concerning their safety and personal rights. The Emperor is a firm believer in a absolute monarchy, for one man can better lead a nation than a bunch of squabbling polititons. However, the Emperor does keep a council of nobles, the House of Lords, that advise and put forth bills for his approval.
