Bloodless Coup is a sovereign state acting in its self-interest. Within the territory of Bloodless Coup, the Soon-to-be-Ruling Junta holds the monopoly on the legitimate use of force. Troll - or violate norms - at the risk of provoking a MID, which range from "no action" to major international conflagration. In other words, we reserve the right to exercise hegemonic power over anyone, for any reason, at any time. And there's no global 911. On the other hand, if you play nice, we are generally Benevolent Despots™ in favor of pragmatic internationalism, and are glad to have you here to join the discussion.
p.s. J. David Singer rules!!!
