While the tolerance of the Baunairi towards the myriad ethnic groups of Mars has always been a subject of admiration among the citizenry of the Federation, the government is perplexed as to how the goal of becoming a melting pot is furthered by ceding governing authority to hereditary nobles and greedy corporations.

It is also apparent that in our naïve hopefulness, we have vastly overestimated the democratic nature of the Consortium. It was our impression (perhaps false) that the Consortium was, in many ways, similar to our own nation in its care for equality. We believed that democratic workplaces (guilds) elected leaders to represent them and hold primary decision-making power. We also thought that given the humble nature of the Jainisist faith, as represented in the more relatable and less pretentious architecture common under the new government, the single-minded avarice for wealth common in Old Baunair would have been discouraged and those that seek it above the advancement of the people as a whole pushed away from the reins of power.

We can see that we were mistaken. Leaving aside the malapportionment of even elected seats with the presumably fewer scientific and artistic workers having equal weight to the entire proletariat, the power of a citizen's vote is further tainted by the unelected Perquisite (which, apparently, also serves as a source of civil servants who, we assume, will continue to exploit their connections for personal gain). We blame no one but ourselves for failing to understand that in the past, as now, corporations control the Board as a whole. It is our hope that the Baunairi government could assuage our fears by at least explaining us to that the corporations are worker-owned and controlled, but we will not hold our breath (we do see, as we continue reading, that it appears that the Guildmasters, themselves elected, seem to be regional legislatures but we're unclear about how the Board's representatives are chosen or how the workplaces run daily).

We also question the wisdom of the office of Exeveign. In a world where nations increasingly turn away from unelected hereditary nobility, either from a leftist perspective as in the IWA or from whatever perspective the Mad Tyrant of Ceona is running with, is it wise to make your chief diplomat someone from a class increasingly distrusted in the Solar System as a whole?

OOC, Not fair for me to prod at King with when even I'm not sure about my current structure. I've said a lot of different little quips and stories about coalitions, but you can consider them paved over and replaced with the following, simple, constitution.

IC: The Universal People's Federation, recognizing the immense size and regional differences among the various peoples and planets under its jurisdiction, has chosen to issue out a new constitution that reaffirms what worked and improves upon that which did not.

The Federal level of the Universal People's Federation has very little authority in domestic affairs but has the majority of power in the international field. The Federal Council of People's Representatives is the elected legislature at the Federal level, with one member coming from each Republic-level subdivision. They select the Council of Commissars, composed of the following members: Premier, Commissar of Foreign Affairs, Commissar of War, Commissar of Trade, Commissar of State Security, and the Commissar of Finance. The FCPR only has the authority to tax the amount required to sustain the armed forces, foreign commissariat, security, and the functioning of the federal level of government.

Below the Federal level is the National level of government, with the People's Revolutionary Extrasolar Union and Venusian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic. When the UPF expands to include more free socialist peoples who do not full within the natural boundaries of the above, new National subdivisions will be created. The states on the National level are free to structure their government as they wish but it currently works as follows.

The PREU has a Revolutionary Congress, composed of two delegates - one by direct election, one appointed by the system government - from each system in the Union, lead by a Chairman with the usual collection of ministers from labor to security. Due to the vast distances between planets, the RevCon rarely exercises its theoretically unlimited power to tax and spend, instead delegating to the generally proportionally-represented planetary assemblies, which are structured according to the desires of the inhabitants.

The VSFSR has a Federal Duma, composed of ten delegates from each Republic in the Federal Republic. A President is the head of the Federal Republic and relies on a complete assembly of ministers. The VSFSR has a more legally restrained spending and taxing capacity than the PREU, being only allowed to spend no more than 30% of the planetary GDP as per the constitution, which it frequently does. The remainder of the spending is picked up by the Republican subdivisions below.

The Republican-level subdivisions lie below the PREU and VSFSR, and are the lowest level recognized as sovereign, whose power cannot be abridged by those levels above them. Ie, the Radical-Egalitarian Great Western Horde can redraw city boundaries or reduce their authority, but the VSFSR can not do the same to the REGWH. They are too varied in number to go into at this time.

The Consortium has never been a democracy and has never expressed a desire to become such. The lauded founder of the Entinates was clear in his belief that rule by the faith via the corporate and clan mechanisms the Baunairi are accustomed to was the proper form of government for Central Mars. We are saddened that the UPF seems to have difficulty with this but nonetheless extend good will to your government and people.

Directors of the Consortium

Postby kingpie3 » 02 Aug 2019, 20:33

With the recent political shake up in the Consortium, the Guildmasters and High Perquisite have analyzed the data to create a new Board of Directors for the Entinates. Approved by the Janisi and Synod, these individuals represent the excellence every citizen should aspire to possess. They are diverse and ambitious, with bold new plans to reassert the greatness of the Consortium and the planet Mars. These are the first six announced:

Director of Bio-Engineering:
M'adan Ludronn, Janisist Moor from Rosealba's Garden
A longtime member of the Artist Guild, Ludronn is a prominent xenowood architect. Before his appointment to the Board, he owned the second largest seed banks on Mars and was responsible for developing several new tree species for use in construction, recreation, and green energy. He's regarded as a trailblazer for biotech education in schools but a noted opponent of AI rights. He enjoys much of his public support from an alliance of high tech workers in the Central Entinates and the liberal wing of the Synod, who have pushed forward a moderate political message.

Director of Manufacturing:
Bensir Jefral, Janisist szalchian-Suratan from Surata
Unlike most of the Board, Jefral is of noble birth. His mother is a princess from the Southerly Cities, semi-independent szalchian urban centers located near the poles. Meanwhile his father, patriarch of the Suratan branch of the House of Jefral, owned numerous heavy manufacturing facilities in the capital of Suzumiya. He was proposed by the Guildmasters and brought from Surata for his management of Consortium-owned airship factories in the north of the country. He is beloved by his tens of thousands of workers and a prominent patron of artisan airships. His wife is a distant relative of the House of Zempor and he practices a syncretic form of Janisism that places a szalchian moon goddess as the leader of the Primad. A major policy goal of his is "aggressive economic integration" with the rest of the planet. He is a member of the Laborer Guild.

Director of Finance:
Xodral Nayol, Muslim Damarisi-Aresian from Roam
Xodral was born in the city of Roam, a nomadic settlement famed for travelling across the deserts of Damaris. He is related to both the Nayol clan, an Aresian descended banking family, and the Muskitas, the most influential tribe in his home country. As a high profile chieftain he is famed for bringing the banking systems of the Aresian successor states closer together with Consortium financiers. He's been with the corporation for over 50 years and has supported initiatives to expand transnational microfinance operations and the "nomadic credit" to support pastoral peoples. He desires to continue these efforts while extending Consortium investment to other parts of the galaxy. He is a prominent member of the Laborer Guild.

Director of Media:
Nirdi Agava, Janisist Rellakhan from The Luminescent
As a former priestess running the largest temple on Mars, Agava was reportedly hesitant to take on a major corporate position. However, her strong sense of morality is prized by the Janisi and she was persuaded to be the leader of the nation's mass media and entertainment division. She is a well regarded artist and musician in her own right, which coupled with her fairness toward all forms of content, makes her an exceedingly popular choice among Guildmasters. Her connections to The Luminescent also make her a trusted representative for the Cult's more conservative factions. Though she is likely to deliver another era of liberal content, there's a belief she is fair and will listen to all sides of an argument.

Director of High Technology:
Naddud Sehaln, Bauno Frenchman from Fort Squaine
Sehaln has been a leading Guildmaster for several decades as a member of the Science Guild. Outside of being among the most brilliant men of his generation, he personally oversaw the development of key breakthroughs in civilian technologies. While he never sought to become a Director, deeming the position too limiting, with the increased legislative powers they have been afforded he sees an opportunity to push the Entinates as a premier biocomputing power.

Director of Construction:
Oneeira Majaheur, Janisist Malian from Urmania
Urmania was once described by the Janisi as the next frontier of Mars. After several decades, that idyllic statement has become a reality due to Majaheur's leadership. Born to a Baunairi immigrant family in the aristocratic nation, she came to prominence when she took a job with the Consortium's Redwalker Union subsidiary 30 years ago. She joined as a member of the Administrative Guild to manage migrant relations during the construction boom. Majaheur helped oversea the Janisization of several Urmanian cities as she helped facilitate the environment needed to construct new temples, roads, and bridges. She also oversaw the integration of advanced Consortium technologies which jumpstarted the Urmanian economy for years to come. Her accomplishments would eventually propel her to national stardom. A close fiend of Bensir Jefral, she hopes to further planetary economic integration.

Re: General Domestic Issues

Postby Subotai45 » 05 Aug 2019, 22:18

A hulking shape rattles across the immense void between stars. A massive ship, it looks like it was once an Aurora-class freighter, but one to which generations of sailors have clobbered on living quarters, mining appendages, and various extra engines and storage areas. This is not uncommon among Federal cooperatives, where a lack of capital has lead to a general shift in the merchant fleet from a few sleek corporate vessels to a vast and decentralized swarm of freight/mining ship/habitats run by workers' councils, unions, or soviets.

This ship, the FMV Country Roads is destined for the massive shipyards of Altaiir, carrying a load of top-notch civilian computers only produced on the Homeworld - a relatively valuable cargo, but not absurdly so, considering that the computers can hold a sentient AI, but not a military-grade one. The People's Revolutionary Extrasolar Union has announced its intention to bring more planets into the Union, settled with free peoples on currently uninhabited worlds, and will use the computers to commission more colony ships.

The voyage is, more or less, uneventful. The ship follows its charted course with exacting precision, until roughly halfway to Altaiir, it is sharply jolted out of warp drive by a cluster of antiwarp buoys placed in its path - presumably by the same group that is manning the Parthian-type frigate crashing towards it at a significant fraction of the speed of light. If this were a normal freighter, this is the time when the crew of Country Roads would check to make sure that the upload to Heaven is functioning and calmly await their passage to the next world while the Parthian blasts them to pieces.

As soon as the first laser pings off the shield - on a freighter, fairly weak, more for asteroid debris than combat - the ship begins to explode, huge chunks of engine and quarters and equipment sloughing off like the skin of a snake, revealing a much smaller, sleeker craft hidden under the layers of ancient Brass Tacks. The Scythian Light Cruiser, actually called Antmusic opens up with a massive weight of antimatter missiles - as a ship of the Federal Armada, it has the taxpayer money to expend however much ammo it needs to. The Parthian takes immediate evasive action, but it's accelerating too quickly towards the Scythian - a newer, better-armed, and better-defended vessel. Antmusic, a relatively young ship, hasn't experienced combat, being commissioned after Belt, and relishes the chance to earn its combat medal, throwing immense weight of fire at the scouting frigate, ripping it apart as its own eagerness to ambush the "defenseless freighter" draws it to its inevitable doom.

Upon returning to the system, Antmusic is given the Extrasolar Combat Medal and is authorized to mark its exterior to mark a kill. The Commissar of State Security for the Universal People's Federation makes a brief speech to congratulate the brave ship - and to warn the other nations of the international community about the threat that LORAX poses.

"The Federation aims to keep the international community updated about the threat that the League of Orthodox Revolutionaries poses," she says. "While the Federation has managed to destroy one of their vessels, our intelligence knows that they have several other ships in their organization. We will continue to do our best to learn more about this organization's plans and keep the world updated."

All nations that bother to listen to Venusian news or read the emails we send you are now aware of the following.
- LORAX now has a total of 9 spacecraft, located somewhere in extrasolar space. Four of these are Parthian-type frigates, stolen from the Federal Armada, four are Venusian-make mining craft, and one is from the mining fleet sold by the Phoenix Corporate Group to the Federal government.
- Last confirmed location was a third of the way from the Solar System to Altaiir, where they made their presence known by attacking a PREU terraforming vessel. This more recent attack indicates that they're still in the area.
- They have one outpost on Earth, somewhere in Russia.
- They have received an item from an eccentric billionaire that they call the "Oobleck." The Federation has no knowledge of its capacities.

The PCG has placed it's extra solar systems on high-alert in response to the potential threat posed by the eco-terrorist group LORAX since their disappearance from Sol (well, most of them anyway).

Ours is a culture that places great importance on natural habitats and their conservation, but such acts of terrorism performed by this group against innocent individuals who were simply looking to start a new life in an off-world colony, are antithetical to everything we hold dear.

With 500 mining ships each in the Trappist, Teergardens and Struve 2398 systems, all have been given new security protocols to ensure LORAX will be easier to identify if they attempt to disguise themselves as a member of the PCG's fleets in these systems, using the Phoenix Mining Craft obtained via their deception of the Venusian authorities.

The TOI-270 and GJ 357 systems are not yet colonised, nor have mining operations commenced there, but our interests in these systems also are on high alert to be on the lookout for any convoy of mining ships matching the descriptions of those given to us by Venusian authorities.

Fellow powers are also advised that any Phoenix Mining Craft operating outside of Sol (or the aforementioned systems owned by the PCG, or those within which we have existing operations), should be treated as suspect - especially if part of a convoy that also includes Venusian mining ships and frigates - and reported to the Corporation at the earliest opportunity.

We remain committed to ensuring the safety of our extra solar colonies and in bringing this group to justice at the earliest opportunity.

In Peace and Plenty, for All.

The Holy State has always been a democracy and anyone who says otherwise is lying :P .

Speaking of democracy though our second Presidential Election under the Holy State is coming up.

Declaration #51
October 13th, 4857

The President has the power with the support of 5 Seijin to issue a declaration or block a declaration.

Declaration #52
October 21st, 4857

The President may not run for re-election.

Declaration #53
October 30th, 4857

The President has the ability to appoint Ambassadors to the recognized foreign countries.

Declaration #54
November 16th, 4857

New Presidential Election System.
Same eligibility process. The difference is that after 2 debates an election will be had. After that the top 5 candidates will remain. There will be 1 debate then an election which after that 2 candidates will remain. A final debate will occur in which afterward the President will be selected in a runoff election.
The Ichiji Seijin and 6 Seijin have the power to remove a Presidential Candidate at any time. There spot will be taken by the runner up to that spot.
The President cannot block the removal of a Presidential Candidate or issue a declaration to remove a Presidential Candidate.


4 Declarations have been issued in relation to this event and President Sakura Fukui is preparing to step down in 3 years.
So now we are the most democratic nation in the galaxy :D .

In all seriousness the Commission of Elections has announced 7 candidates:

Akane Hamamoto
Daisuke Amari
Ryuji Morioka
Shigekazu Kuroda
Kin Suko
Usagi Konya
Yasashiku Tamyaki

First debate:

MODERATOR: We asked each of the candidates to submit a question they’d like to be asked about. Three questions we chosen at random to be discussed. The first question we were asked is “What is the most biggest thing you’ve done for this country?”

KONYA: Well I would like to talk about my background as a missionary in southern Mongolia. I’ve spread the teachings of Janis to the rural communities that lag behind the rest of the country. While other people have left these millions of people behind I’ve been here promising to fight for those who are downtrodden every day.

KORUDA: I’d like to remind everyone here that I was here for the revolution. And I fought for the revolution. I live in central Cannu (Hokkaido) and when the ungodly Republic of Cannu was founded I was instrumental in overthrowing them.

KONYA: What have you done since then? From what I hear you’ve just been living on a farm growing melons.

AMARI: Have you got no shame Ms. Konya? This man risked his life for our faith. You talk about living in poor conditions but you had nothing to lose if your missions went wrong. You didn’t fear for your life. He put himself in harms way in order to secure a place where we can live and practice in safety.

KONYA: That’s not what I’m saying. I’m saying that he did one thing for this country 25 years ago. Don’t we want something more recent, some whose been continuously committed?

MODERATOR: Well that’s it for now. The next question that was posed is “What is one way that you interpret the faith that is different from their implementation in the Holy State?”

SUKO: Personally, I believe in the legalization of homosexual activities. It doesn’t do justice to get heavily involved in people’s personal affairs.

MORIOKA: I kind of agree with Suko that the Holy State shouldn’t regulate what people practice. Right now Buddhism is tolerated, but what about Islam, Christianity, Nomadic and Mongolian beliefs etc.? They don’t have the same protections.

SUKO: Yeah, I’d be for deregulating a lot of criminalized activities. Maybe it could effect their National Credit but I don’t believe people should serve jail time for it.

HAMAHOTO: If you deregulate a bunch of things then you encourage bad behavior. Do you not believe in Janisism? If you do then you should recognize that all other paths are wrong. Why would we tolerate immoral behavior. Suko talks about not getting involved in people’s personal affairs. So if someone breaks into your house then it’s a personal affair between you and the robber? If you sell drugs to someone it’s a personal affair between you and the buyer? The state has no role in preventing these things? It does. To suggestion otherwise is purely idiotic. That state must prevent immoral behavior in its borders.

MORIOKA: Look if someone breaks into your house and steals stuff. They are stealing government property since everything is state owned in the Holy State. Therefore the government should get involved. If someone is selling drugs to someone else, if that someone isn’t state sanctioned it’s illegal so yes the government should get involved. What we support is the ability for people to apply to be sanctioned by the government to sell alcohol and marijuana.

MODERATOR: And question number 3. “What is the most memorable moment you had practicing your faith?”

TAMYAKI: I attended a service after my sister died. My Saishi told me that everything was gonna be alright and that I should offer her something before I go to bed. That night she came to me in a dream and thanked me for the gift. The next day I woke up and it was gone. I cried so much but I knew that she would always be with me spiritually if not in person.

SUKO: I managed to make an app that allowed for people with Janisist beliefs to reach to everyone else around earth and talk about their connections to faith.

AMARI: It was probably when I first converted to Janisism. Before I was a Christian but when my child was dying right after my wife gave birth to her I asked Janis to save my family from the disruption her death would cause. I swore I would live trying to bring everyone around me to live in his name. He took mercy on me and saved my daughters life and for that I’ll forever be thankful.

MORIOKA: My most memorable moment in faith was actually when I was surrounded by people of another faith. I was in Afghanistan fighting the bloody Tajiks in their insurgency against the Afghan government. One day I was shot several times and was rushed to a medical unit. There they said I was likely to die. Instead I said to them, pray to your god and I’ll pray to mine. After that they cut off my arm that had been so riddled in bullets that it was useless. Blood poured out of it and they didn’t have anything to numb the pain. So I bit on something as they cut it off and then cleaned up my injuries. I lived and I thank Janis for giving me the strength to go through with that and bring me home

KONYA: When I was in southern Mongolia. Teaching young children the way of Janis. I lived in a small hut with no clean water. But the children were always happy. The way they looked hopefully when I told them what following the way of Janis could bring them filled them with joy and one day I hope that we can prove to them that our common faith unites us by bringing them into the same amount of wealth as the rest of the country.

Re: Directors of the Consortium (cont.)

Postby kingpie3 » 12 Aug 2019, 19:10

Director of Energy:
Eranar Da'biab, Janisist Korhali from Orindore
Da'biab was born and raised in a nomadic band living above the the underground metropolis of Orindore. He'd grow to become an important member of the Administrative Guild who represented the Consortium on a project with the Royal Kurusu Company. During his 30 year stay in the corporate nation, he was responsible for updating several key aspects of its infrastructure such as the Transmartian Railroad Resupply (which was integrated into the planetary network) and the Space Fountains. He's been called a reincarnation of the Xa'esphric Muse Andaloro, the god of labor for his workaholic mentality and multiple limbs. He was also a one time Guildmaster and was offered a position on the Synod, though he refused.

Director of Military Affairs:
Decrel Munvelen, Folk Janisist Szalchian from Rosealba's Garden
Close to the age of 150, Munvelen is one of the younger members of the Board. The son of legendary mercenaries, his career began as a student at various prestigious military schools, including the cosmopolitan Universal Proletarian Academy. Representing the Warrior Guild, he would gain planetary fame for his leadership during operations to defeat Bauno Christian terrorists based in Nauthet. Munvelen also played a large role in negotiating the procurement of over 3 million mercenaries from Neoresia (former Aresian cultural region), Elipsium, and Urmania. Along with his wife Helsare D'viziiru, he is considered a personal friend of the Janisi.

Director of Educational Affairs:
Synirro Vailane, Janisist Frenchwoman from Orlaith
Because there are relatively few children in the Entinates, a disproportionate amount of funding goes to the Consortium's university system, which ranks as one of the greatest in Sol. Madame Vailaine has contributed over 60 years as a member of the Artist Guild conducting university programs to spread the Janisist language across Mars. She is a historian of the highest order and a leading academic in several other fields of research. Her work resulted in her promotion to Guildmaster, where she has been a champion for educational investment and the establishment of satellite campuses in other Martian nations.

Director of Resources:
Ranrau Besoud, Janisist Arab from Marimba City
Born to Phoenician immigrants working on a joint mining venture with the Consortium, Ranrau was immersed in the world of mining from a young age. She eventually took over the family's business on the outskirts on Marimba, where she would build a regional megacorp she sold to the Daydyne Rock Merchants, the Consortium's biggest mining company. As a member of the Laborer Guild, she'd rise through the ranks of Daydyne and be elected by the Guildmasters as Director of Resources. She plans to spearhead new extrasolar mining operations and secure other materials for major projects like the secretive Dyson Seed.

Director of Services:
Sahira D'rosin, Janisist Malian from Trevnoi
D'rosin is one of the foremost medical minds in the nation, having worked for years as a Guildmaster specializing in resurrection and transformation. Identifying with the Laborer Guild, she modernized the Consortium's healthcare system with revolutionary discoveries in mind transferal. She similarly is a prominent researcher on the medical properties of the Founding Trees found within the Entinates' borders. As Director, she has vowed to continue her support for research into medical technologies, especially those relating to upcoming colonization efforts.

Director of Interstellar Activity:
Thadir Jaupione, Muslim Martisian from Elipsium
Elipsium has always been considered the 14th Entinate by most, with the citizens of the Martisian nation enjoying the full privileges of their brethren across the border. Thus, Jaupione has worked for decades in his nation as a member of the Science Guild developing spacefaring technologies. His most recent work was the development of the Brightcry starfighter, the beginning of a new era of warfare for the Consortium as it paves a future in the stars. He recently moved to Orlaith after marrying Nushie Etzylsende, a noblewoman of the West African Esatorie clan.
