Scandinavia? Or Canada?

I fully intend to visit both with a Russian parka.  Ho-ho-ho.

Just a Russian parka? Really?

I figured I'd visit with some Russians. And some Russian firearms. And some Russian armored divisions.

What I'm saying is I'm going to hire Russian mercenaries to conquer Canada, at which point I will cut off the supply of maple syrup to everywhere, crippling the world economy and forcing the UN to either pay me a bunch of money or step in with military force, in which instance I use Canada as a trap to defeat the UN and declare myself King of the World.

That is how the UN works, right?

Also either way my pancakes are delicious for a few months.
Your plan has several holes in it.

First off, let's start with the economic dependence on maple syrup. While there is some, it's relatively low. Your best bet is to stop the export of hockey players.
Secondly, it's Canada. Who gives a crap? All they got are hockey players and maple syrup.
Thirdly, you're probably going to be assassinated relatively quick. I mean, I'd just call you and claim I was the UN (who's too busy to deal with Canada's problems), then show up with a bunch of ninjas and kill you. I'd get some sort of Canadian medal (I thinks it's pronounced "hockey puck"), plenty of fame, and you'll go down in history as the worst coup ever. But, to your credit, I'll call you the "Ninja Dictator." Only because you were defeated by ninjas.
And finally, it's Canada. Who cares?

Syrup is an important thing! How will people in like, Japan enjoy their pancakes? They won't, because I'll control the maple syrup.
Secondly, nobody really does. So I just hold the syrup hostage. And win forever.
Thirdly, conservation of ninjutsu. This is all.
And fourth... I really don't know. Nobody cares. Nobody ever will.

I enjoy my pancakes without any syrup. Your plan fails utterly :P

Ahem, America gives several shits about Canada, not just one.

First of all there is more oil in Alberta then in the entire Middle East, and second of all there's that massive border that could be invaded across. Canada will never be in any danger because America wouldn't put up with us being conquered.

Canada? Is that you??? Who let you out of the closet!? Don't make me beat you!

Ho ho ho. Children say the funniest things. Active imaginations... So, let's get back to our serious discussion about invading Canada with Russian mercenaries and then assassinating people with ninjas, shall we?

That gives me an idea for a role...

FYI, to save time a lot of the more fluid things (e.g. what happens if someone crushes the nonce) will be made up on the fly and altered by current states of the game.

There are rules and you should obey them.

You just won't always know what they are.

And they'll change often.
