Diplomacy (from the Greek δίπλωμα, meaning a folded paper or document) is the art and practice of conducting negotiations between representatives of groups or states. On the MRT, it refers to the negotiations and agreements between various cities of the MRT. Several attempts at a United Nations format has not been successful to this point, but there are a strong diplomacy going behind the scenes using various diplomatic methods. In September of 2015, however the League of Cities, a server wide MPO dedicated to peace, justice, and equality, was founded by Camelfantasy, and has been met with extreme success with over 60 members.


Embassies are the physical representation of Diplomacy on the MRT Server. A city can choose to establish a embassy in another city or allow cities to establish embassies within their city limits to encourage tourism, trade, and set a relationship between two cities to allow for easier negotiations in the future when it comes to various important issues, such as rail right-of-way, city boundaries, and other issues.

Currently, there are several embassies established in order to facilitate diplomatic relations between cities and/or nations. Some cities, such as Fairfax, Atlanta and Plainscity, has a street set up for a common zone of embassies. A non-exhausting list of embassies can be found here:
