- This article is about embassies in a roleplaying context. For regional embassies used in gameplay, see embassies.
An embassy is the diplomatic mission of an ambassador, and as such is usually the senior diplomatic mission of its home nation in the host nation. Embassies are usually recognised as the sovereign territory of the home nation, inviolate to the host nation's police and military, although some states (especially rogue states, states with unstable despotic regimes, or certain types of aggressive dictatorships) may not observe diplomatic norms in this matter. Embassy programs, such as those featured in National Factbooks and Information, are a typical starting-off point in any diplomatic roleplaying context.
