We too must decline the French offer, as Sweden is equally committed to the League of Armed Neutrality. Although their proposal of loosened trade regulations is intriguing, we shall need to discuss the issue further to ensure it will not have negative ramifications on our goal of protecting and promoting Swedish industry.

(OOC: unsure of how many ships we currently have in Karlskrona; please assume for GM purposes that this represents our current fleet + those under construction via this order. If we already have this (or more) ignore this. I used British equivalents for ease), Noting the need to defend our merchant convoys and to fulfill our League obligations, we shall embark on a naval expansion program, constructing: 2 second-rate ship-of-the-lines, 16 third-rate ship-of-the-lines, 2 fourth-rate ship-of-the-lines, 4 fifth-rate frigates, 1 sixth-rate frigate, 9 sloops-of-war, and 4 brig-sloops.

We shall call the Riksdag in an attempt to put right the state's finances (which have been out of shape, largely since Gustav III's Russian War).

Envoys shall be dispatched to the Dano-Norwegians to discuss ways to deepen the ties between our two nations.

We issue a formal protest to the governments of the United Kingdom and of France of the sinking of unarmed merchant shipping.

We declare the opening of free trade between Sweden and Saint Barthélemy.

And finally, we proclaim our intentions of peace, desiring neither to take advantage of Russia's current state, nor to involve ourselves with the current war between Great Britain and the French Republic.

These are the orders of His Majesty Gustav Adolf, by the Grace of God, of the Swedes, the Goths and the Vends King, Grand Prince of Finland, Duke of Pomerania, Prince of Rügen and Lord of Wismar, Heir to Norway and Duke of Schleswig-Holstein, Stormarn and Dithmarschen, Count of Oldenburg and Delmenhorst, etc. etc.

On Monetary Affairs

The project of naval construction shall continue, but shall continue at a reduced rate in order to achieve the same end total over a longer span of time (to lessen the burden on national finances), with the end goal of completion removed to a less ambitious target of late 1805-early 1806. The great Swedish Navy will be one of the most formidable in Europe - eventually. The Riksdag is encouraged to investigate the possibility of lessening export tolls to promote an inflow of foreign capital in the agricultural sector.

In an additional effort to curb inflation and simplify our monetary system, we shall tie the values of our paper monies: 1 riksdaler banco is equivalent to 1 1/2 riksdaler riksgälds. Further monetary reform shall come about later.

The monarchy encourages but shall not mandate the wearing of the nationella dräkten as a way to lessen spending on expensive foreign fashions.

On Internal Affairs

The freedom of Jews, Catholics, and Muslims to worship freely and immigrate to Sweden shall not be infringed, though Lutheranism shall remain the true religion of the state.

The practice of capital punishment, save for the crimes of murder, high treason, piracy, espionage, arson against government installations, and various wartime offenses shall end, as shall the practice of strict capital punishment. Torture as either a punishment or a means to extract confessions is prohibited.

The amendments to the Freedom of the Press Act of 1766, and the provision allowing revocation of publishing licenses, are repealed.

Coffee is legalized now.

I would also like to announce my intentions to found an additional Royal Academy, the Royal Swedish Academy of Agriculture and Forestry.

On Foreign Affairs

Talks shall continue with Denmark-Norway - we send particularly our wishes to not dominate them with an iron fist, and instead look for more peaceful forms of cooperation.
