The likes of Singapore, Hong Kong and Brunei have not given up on adding Luxembourg to their club. Through some kind of cool portal, Hong Kong told the Lux Splice, "Us self-centred centres like to take care of our own. We will not give up on our sick, retarded European cousin. Plus, we need a replacement because in 2046, we're fucked!"
Crying into its coffee, Luxembourg said "We're a Francophone colony forever!" Hong Kong gave it a warm hug and said "Duchy. You are a Grand Duchy!"
