Diplomats are the agents used to initiate diplomatic actions. Like all agents, countries can only keep 5 diplomats in reserve. Diplomatic actions are answered a day after they are initiated, but there is a month-long cool down period before the player may send another to the same country.


Creating an admiral or general costs 1 diplomat along with a sum of money proportional to how many admirals or generals are already in the player's service.
