I am the 'Honorary Consul' from The Independent Republic of the Peedee (NE of SC)

I demand all diplomatic rights AND a special parking space in DC. (I will let the highest bidder use it in order to bring in revenue for my country.)

We are waiting for Governor Haley to appoint an envoy to negotiate rights with. It has to be someone we will believe so that may take a while.

I am the representative for the small cities and country enclaves that make up the republic. If SC or anybody else tries to attack, we have fortified our borders with hidden nests of fire ants that have weak zappers that can really stir them up. We also have our defense systems hidden under kudzu, but we have to remember where they are.

This area is riddled with swamps where gawd knows what lives. We know them like the back of our hands. We also have designated areas where eleventy billion chiggers live. Those will be used as 'traps' to lead the enemy through and that will render them helpless when they have to scratch for days.

In case of a blockade, we have stored enough grits and moonpies to last until the end of time. That will be supplemented with whatever else is edible.

We welcome friends and will pen enemies in the woods at the mercy of Mother Nature. She is a bitch.

Y'all take care now.

12. Don't shoot!

Dr.Pepper will be added! We can add it to hooch and see Jeebus.
We need to sign a treaty because we are natural allies.

8. Woo-hoo! The Pee Dee - one of the most beautiful rivers

I've ever canoed in SC (when I lived there). May I help you defend her? I am a diplomatic rep from the "Our Lady of the Wadboo Swamp".

10. As the "Honorary Counsul' from The Independent Republic of Thoroughbred Country...

...(center of western border of SC), I wish to establish an alliance with The Independent Republic of the Pee Dee. We have the same defenses, and having spent way more time than I would like in our own swamps, I DO know what lives in them. In addition to comparable designated chigger areas and fire ant defenses, we have an air force of deer flies and mosquitoes numbering in the hundreds of billions. We also have stables full of dressage horses, who I know would be happy to be free of their evil overlords. I believe an alliance between our republics would be of great mutual benefit.

I don't believe Nikki Haley has an envoy that can be believed, so it will be a long wait.

15. Mosquitos make up the bulk of our air force.

We also have squadrons of gnats and horse flies to add to the attack. The enemy might die from too much DEET trying to repel them.

Alliance established. We can catch people in a pincer movement if need be.
