It is the firm position of the Cyonian government that we sold remain unconnected (legally) from moral issues and belief systems. It is the duty of the government to provide for and protect its citizens. As such, any legal actions are not a reflection of personal beliefs and/or practices, so long as all parties are consenting and it does no direct harm to others or the community at large. There are many options, religiously, throughout the Imperium. All are free to choose their beliefs and practice them as they so choose.

It is against Cyonian principles to attempt to reform or even inhibit any religious practice, as long as it conforms to the previously stated standards.

If, as you say, certain faiths are promoting "regressive" systems of belief, it is frankly not the business of the Cyonian state.

The Imperator, for example, is a devoit member of the Cyonian Orthodox Church, but that is not a requirement. Similarly, members of his family (and all other citizens) are free to believe and practice what they will. In fact, a recent bill passed by the Senate essentially makes any form of marriage legal. Polygany, Polyandry, Monogamy, Same-sex marriage, and anything else can be considered a "marriage" in the legal sense. Pretty much nothing is illegal in that regard if all parties are consenting.

That does not, however, reflect the personal beliefs of the majority of the Imperium. It is meant as a measure to protect the rights of minorities (such as Baunari, Pacificans, and maybe even West Africans) that may culturally or religiously practice such marriage systems.

Due to the the newfound Domuian influence in China, the Crown has decided to elevate Macau's status and defense systems, making it a much larger focus than before. A full-time Legion will be stationed in Macau at all times, in addition to a garrison of militia.

With the full collapse of the Chiss Ascendancy in South Australia and the growth of Domuia in China, the Revanchist Party in Pacifica has grown exponentially this last year. Currently, their top goals include the recapture of Sulawesi and the annexation of South Australia and have won a number of seats away from the Rasmian Party in particular, especially amongst those who feel the Rasmians' 'morals' have prevented them from adequately representing Pacifica.

The new Chancellor of the Forum, with the blessing of the inner council, has ordered troops to the Natuna and Anambas Isles in the South China to build extra defenses. The current chancellor, the son of Duke Celebes, is a believer in the domino effect and believes that Pacifica should not tolerate further Domuian expansion in the South China Sea. He's also made it clear he wants Sulawesi-what he views as Pacifican land and his birthright-back.

In addition, Celebes II has undertaken new talks with the remaining governments in South Australia, intending for a diplomatic annexation over a period of some years.

The full starfleet reform/rebuilding of both the 1st and 2nd Fleets (space) is now complete. Assembly of the 3rd Fleet resumed 6 months ago.

Several of the Imperial Legions are now fully assembled, trained, and ready for combat. In order to reduce military spending during peacetime, the SPAM bots are all placed in standby mode (they're switched off, except for the occasional military test, drill, or war game).

In what could be a massive change to the diplomatic balance, the Crown has opted to lower the tariffs on Domuian trade and goods, and has eased restrictions on the import of Domuian military equipment, although nanolathes remain illegal. This change in policy has even flowed down to the Crown's vassals in Burma, Cambodia and the Belts.

This follows after the Crown dismissed the current Chancellor, Duke Celebes II. Celebes II has vowed to run again in the next election cycle, and his followers are no doubt angry about the sudden change.

Finally, the Queen has announced plans to step down within the coming years so her son Crown Prince George II can take the throne. George has been assuming more responsibilities over the years, the latest of which as Grand Marshall of the Confederacy for a few years in reykjavik, and is more popular than his mother.

His Imperial Majesty, Dmitri the Matyr, Emperor of Venus, Pirate-King of Libertatia, Grand Duke of Astarte, Champion of the Faithful, Defender of the Whole of the Galaxy, etc, has been reclaimed by the gods, who wish for his beatified soul to join them in the Highest Heaven. He leaves behind several children, all born on the bastion that is 2 Pallas, as well as a large number of grieving concubines and relatives (occasionally one and the same). Crown Prince Dmitri II will eventually assume the throne, rather than his elder sister, due to the change to male primogeniture enacted during the Pallian Exile.

The Baujantec Consortium is moving towards reconciliation with The Cooperative as well. The embargo placed on their goods at the onset of the League War is being reversed and the financial holdings of Domuians in the Entinates are being unfrozen to facilitate the exchange of money between both fine nations. In a statement today, the Adored One makes clear his belief in the potential of both parties to respect each others' strengths and interests while moving toward a better tomorrow. He also affirms the strong relationship the Consortium continues to enjoy with it's fellow Martian powers and it's Earth-based alliances;

The Baujantec Consortium is not what Old Baunair was. It's more egalitarian in the way it hopes to conduct itself on the world stage and offers peace and prosperity to all nations. Regardless of their political orientation or cultural differences. Whether you're Janisist, Christian, Muslim, or Hindu, we are all equal before the divine and in times of war we must rise above the material to achieve a higher purpose.

The VSFSR blocks imports from corporations, companies, or other groups that do not have unionized workforces, living wage, fair pay distribution, or particularly exploitive/dangerous working conditions. This is a completely original idea and not a Mattopian suggestion.
