Foreign Policy of the Holy New Britannian Empire
While maintaining relative neutrality in general diplomacy, the Holy Empire does tend to heavily ally and align itself with raider regions, having just recently declared itself as a raider/invader region. The Holy Empire, truly being an Empire now, raids not primarily for imperial expansion, but also to spread the teachings of the Catholic Church to its capture territories.
About the Holy New Britannian Empire
Formalized as a true Empire at the beginning of this year, then declared a Holy Empire last month, what used to be known as the New Britannian imperial Kingdom has become truly what its name implies. At 84 nations, the NBE, enjoys a fairly well extended Empire, stretching to many lands, and joined to many Royal Families. As previously mentioned in Foreign Updates, the Holy New Britannian Empire is the Protector of the Virtual Roman Catholic Church, which still maintains its autonomy despite the subservient title.

The Holy Empire Adopts Religious-Based Flag
At the beginning of September, the Empire discarded the old British-themed flag and adopted a new flag, with the Cross of Jerusalem superimposed with the symbol of the Fominov House, the double-headed eagle, which bears the fleur-de-lys of the Crown. More flags were released one month later, those flags being that of the Imperial Military and the regions composing the Empire. In the words of The Metropolitan, a State run news publication, "The new design gives New Britannian Empire the aura of the Holy Roman Empire, setting the stage for a new era of glory in New Britannian history."
