After the Great War, the four nations of the Allied Army began negotiations aimed at strengthening their relationships. With the conclusion of these negotiations came the establishment of the new consulates.
The consuls and consul guards have many responsibilities, such as ensuring the safety of their nation's adventurers and the profits of their merchants, as well as acting as a bridge between nations.
Finally, during the Great War, many battles were lost due to the indecisiveness of the four nations. Learning from this dilemma, embassies (not consuls) have been established in Jeuno. These embassies have been given high levels of authority, and are allowed to act in times of emergency without the direct authorization of their nations.
