Spain declares war on Britain and The Netherlands!Edit

After Britain attempted to claim several Spanish territories including Gibraltar and several regions in Russia and France, The Spanish Government concluded that this was indeed an act of war and responded by officially declaring all out war on Great Britain and its allies. After the causes of the war were carefully inspected, The Vatican agreed to support Spain in this war. Initially, this war was also against Romania, but since then, Romania has backed out and has agreed to an armistice with Spain. Information regarding this armistice can be found here. Specifics for the first engagements are unknown. King Phillipe V Clemente has announced that he anticipates conquering The Netherlands, Ireland, and Denmark.

Wiki NewsEdit


Paradox Overlord receives a Global Block until JuneEdit

On 3/21/1746 Paradox Overlord received a Global Block until June with reason of: "No Reason Given". This outraged members of The POTCO Switzerland Wiki, The Royal Romania Wiki, The POTCO Players Wiki, and our very own POTCO United Nations Wiki. Appeals have been sent to Wiki Staff, but no replies have been received. VSTF has advised users other than Paradox Overlord to stay out of this, and leave it up to them to decide if Paradox Overlord's ban should be lifted. There is still no official reason as to why Paradox Overlord has been banned. We can only hope that our beloved Wiki's founder will be unbanned soon to help improve the Wiki as he has always done.

Genoa has decided to support Switzerland in this war. Great Britain and Spain have decided to remain neutral for the time being.

Queen Isabella V Clemente's main account "The Belle" is terminated!Edit

On 3/26/1746 Isabella V Clemente main account on POTCO, "The Belle", also the GM of the main Spanish Government guild, "Casa De Royale" was terminated. Specifics for why are unknown and it is possible that the account may be retrievable. Upon hearing of this news, King Phillipe V Clemente was infuriated and has threatened to divorce Isabella and take away her claims to the throne of Spain. Many fear this may spark yet another civil war in Spain. We can only hope that The Spanish Government will resolve this issue before it spirals out of control.
