The Empire of Legoland has aligned its military forces with those of the “Rising Powers”, the PBR and the Federation of Legopolis, it has been confirmed. Announcing the Empire’s signature of the Tripartite Pact, Emperor David formally confirmed the establishment of “the Axis”.
The historic announcement was made in separate speeches by the Emperor and Prime Minister who addressed a packed Hall of Minifigs in Davidium. Their message was greeted with rapturous applause and wanton merriment amongst the gathered Members of Parliament.
In his speech the Emperor extolled the governments of the PBR and the Federation for being true friends of Legoland and bastions of Demanism. The Emperor promised military and economic assistance would be provided to the Federation in its battle against Ancarta rebels and a “technology transfer” with the PBR to assist it in its space programme. Prominent political observers in Legoland disagree on whether the formation of the Axis has brought the prospect of war in Panterra Major closer but all agree that it is undoubtedly intended to act as a deterrent to Caprican expansionism.
The Tripartite Pact dissolves the informal Non-Aggression Pact signed between the Capricas and the PBR and this has reportedly infuriated the monarchy in Alexandria to such an extent that diplomatic ties look set to be cut.
