Calm Defeat, Cheap Beer, and the Slammers
It seems humor is intended in the names:
- PLACIDE TRAFALGAR, Minister of War
- PLACIDE translates as "calm"
- TRAFALGAR was a famous naval defeat of the French by the British
- VAN LABIBINE, Ambassador of STYRIE [now in Austria]
- BIBINE translates as "lower quality beer"
- ANATOLE DELATOLE, Police Commissioner
- TÔLE translates as an informal term for" jail"
