Parliament spent a few years debating the political ramifications, and to everyone’s surprise petitioned to be admitted into the Kingdom in 259 A.C. Although many in the Kingdom disliked the idea, Lord British saw their admittance as a step forward towards better relations, and a possibility of more influence, to prevent another Embargo. The only concession was that Parliament would retain the right to veto any of Lord British’s decree’s they did not see as equitable to their city-state. So far none have come that they have disagreed with, but it may only be a matter of time. Magincia has not constructed any new buildings in over a century, and has shown no inclination to do so. As a result, Magincians often visit NuJel’m to satisfy their cravings for the finer things of life. On their own isle they do have two bakeries, the Magincian sweet-tooth is legendary, and their own tavern, which is frequented by Parliament.
