As such its primary foreign policy focus is on its relations with other nations as a sovereign independent nation. Sinope has long had good relations with other nations.

 Bergenstein 1855 See Sinope-Bergen relations

Since 2013, Sinope has had an embargo on trade with Bergenstein. Bergenstein has the lowest number of diplomatic points allocated to a country in bilateral relations by the Sinopian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, lower than Calibria which has held this position for most of Sinope's history. With the recent Bergen Wars and the subsequent Operation Last Christmas, relations between the two countries are expected to be re-established and improved with the formation of a new democratic Bergen government.

 Acadia 1780 See Sinope-Acadian relations
  • Sinope has an embassy in Troy and consulates in Charles, Davis, Ellsburgh, Genoa, Highland, Hudson, and New Stretton
  • Acadia has an embassy in Braavos and consulates in Lindos, Myr, and Tyr

Political relations between Sinope and Acadia began in the late 18th century when Sinope was one of the first Althenan nation to recognise the newly independent states and support its independence against Trentannia, but had slight importance and aroused little controversy until the Great Adonian War and the Fraesian conflict. An era of close alliance between Doge Theon and the Acadian government was followed by a dramatic reversal and hostility between the two countries in the midst of the Great Adonian War. Both countries are today members of the United Sovereign Nations of the World. Opinions differ over what has caused the decades of poor relations. Explanations offered include everything from the "natural and unavoidable" conflict between the Sinopian democracy on the one hand, and Acadian arrogance and desire for global dictatorship and hegemony on the other. Doge Diogenes has recently called Acadia a "threat to Adonian security".

 Folland 1742 See Sinope-Folland relations
  • Sinope has an embassy in Hinali
  • Folland has an embassy in Braavos

Sinope severed all diplomatic ties with Folland in regard to the 2013 Folland military coup d'état and the Follandian illegal invasion of Freasia, part of the Fraesian conflict. Doge Diogenes called Folland a "rogue state" and its government an "illegal regime".

Template:Country data Fraesia 1843 See Sinope-Fraesia relations

Sinope supports Fraesia in the Fraesian conflict which opposes Fraesia to neo-imperialist Euphemian countries like Acadia and Folland. During the Dead War, Sinope condemned both sides, especially the Fraesian and Acadian violations of international law.

 Kuyrut 1685 See Sinope-Kuyrut relations

As of 2013, Sinope supports Kuyrut's claims over Brennsland and Kuyrut supports Sinope's claims over Kariko, mutual dispute supports that helped strengthen relations between the two countries. Kuyrut is also Sinope's third largest trading partner in Euphemia and a fellow USNW member state.

Despite the fact that historic ties between the two nations have been coldly dormant, relations between Sinope and Oxacmela have positively changed in recent years; Oxacmela is Sinope's second largest trading partner in Euphemia.

 Shayden 1780 See Sinope-Shayden relations

Relations between Shayden and Sinope are active and cordial. Mutual visits by high-level officials are conducted on a regular basis and bilateral contact at the cabinet level is active. Sinope and Shayden co-operate closely on some issues (such as the supremacy of international law) but differ on others (such as the Kariko conflict, the Fraesian conflict, and a number of trade issues). Differences are discussed frankly. The largest current fallout between Shayden and Sinope was the Great Adonian War.
