"I am very pleased that the government has decided to recognize the Lego Republic and begin relations, and I look forward to expanding this relationship," Bricks said.
However, the Republic's head of state went on to declare that what the Empire's Minifig Times declared a "faux pas" was in fact a sincere desire to help.
"If there are any minifigs in the Empire that are experiencing trouble after this regime change, the Lego Republic cannot turn its back on them. While it is not our place to interfere with national sovereignty, the issue of minifig rights must be considered."
François Tremblay (far right in image), a member of Parliament and key ally of Bricks, added that it was the Minifig Times that first reported rumors of Legoland citizens fleeing to unsettled lands to the east of the empire.
"The Minifig Times even stated that Legoland's army is roaming freely through the streets of Davidium. When the situation has deteriorated this much, something must be done," said Tremblay.
Finally, President Bricks chose this opportunity to respond to statements made regarding her gender.
"Although I am a female minifig, I don't find any reason why this should affect my capability of serving the Lego Republic. While it is unusual for female minifigs to hold government positions in this day and age, it really should not be," she said.
Indeed, just last year, PBR House of Senate member Leslie Anne made a run for president and came close to winning the election. There is history of female minifigs serving in government, and one of President Bricks' goals for her administration is to improve the conditions of female figs throughout the Lego world.
