Diplomacy with the Slinky Empyre
Foreign relations (diplomacy) is carried out uniquely in the Slinky Empyre. Its foundations are friendship and then neutrality. June is known as the Month of Dyplomacy.
Instead of making allies with other nations, the Slinky Empyre executes informal friendship. This means that both nations recognize each other as friends, but are not bound to each other's terms. The Slinky Empyre 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 Slinky Empyre hopes to maintain contact with these nations to accomplish goals of both nations, and other friendly acts/assistance.
Nations in boldface type are the closest friends of the Empyre.

The Suilandic people even began using the Slinky Documents to help find a suitable government for their nation. However, the Slinky-Suilandic friendship came to end end on March 2, 2010, due to an inactivity report from the 2010 Micronational Activity Review.
