Dear Commissar Claro,

We appreciate your concerns regarding the sale of shielding technology to the Kingdom of Deseret, however we do not agree with the assertion that this expenditure is in breach of restrictions placed on purchases made with Samaritan Fund monies, but we appreciate how it could be construed as such.

You mentioned several other techs that are defensive in nature and along with shielding, these would typically fall under military expenditures. The distinction we made in approving this sale is that unlike the other technologies mentioned, these shields are a purely defensive, static, non-aggressive technology, that offers valuable protection to major population centres. In short, a shield is designed to protect life, not to take it, and that is the standard we judged this action by.

However, we concede that such a loophole does open us up to criticism from some quarters, and we understand how that may adversely impact upon the image and integrity of the Corporation, as well as the FUN and Samaritan Fund itself.

In keeping with these principles of integrity, we have since reimbursed the Kingdom of Deseret for the cost of the shielding, and have arranged an alternative method of payment staggered over several decades, funded through means other than the Samaritan Fund monies from the FUN.

I hope this appeases your concerns somewhat and I look forward to continuing the special relationship between Venus and Mars, in the coming years of my Presidency.

In peace and plenty, for all.


Meurig Halloran,

President of the PCG and Member of the governing body

President Halloran,

The government of the VSFSR and UPF as a whole is glad that you have chosen to take action to uphold the historic neutrality of the PCG and the non-military nature of the Samaritan Fund. We hope that peaceful and prosperous days lie in all our futures,

Commissar Claro (VC), VSFSR

The first day of the constitutional convention arrived, with the topic of debate being the creation of the preamble. Taking influences from the Archaic documents found in the royal library of Salt Lake’s archives, a strange document called a constitution for a long-forgotten nation called the United States of America, the kings party was able to come up with
We the nobility of the Deseret, in order to form a greater kingdom, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the stability of the monarchy, insure the protection of the faith, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of god to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the kingdom of Deseret.
The White party was vehement about adding the clause about for god, and refused to agree to any statement without its inclusion. As they hold a large sway over the nobles, it was agreed upon.

The next days will be on the laws of the nation itself, including

Day 1 Diplomatic relations and warfare
Day 2 religion and religious law
Day 3 status of women
Day 4 status of commoners
Day 5 nobility and succession
Day 6 commerce and property
Day 7 nepotism
Day 8 citizenship
Day 9 crimes and punishment
Day 10 expansion
Any other issues brought up by the committee will be brought up on day 11 or days will be added to the convention.

Through negotiations held between President Halloran and the King of Deseret after the wedding of Maximus Sohl and princess August, agreements were made. In exchange of having the privilege of recording a royal wedding at no expense, President Halloran gifted the king fallout-resistant plants that have grown in the Mountains of Firne of the PCG. With these the rebuilding of Grand Junction can take place. Along with this, the PCG has shown interest in building up private corporations in Deseret, The king agreed to further discussion on this after the 6th day of the constitutional convention and appointed Maximus Sohl, who as a new noble of Deseret and as such has voting status, as the representative for PCG interests during the election.
The king and nobility have conceded on the front of healthcare however. Max and his grandfather Giordano, have put together a little plan to help put in place a healthcare system for the kingdom, based on our own Universal Healthcare, which like theirs would be free to all. Afterall, Deseret may be a theocratic feudal monarchy, but it still cares for its citizens.
The first wave of initial building and training is being paid for by the PCG. The total cost of which is to be around 2.5 trn over the first ten years. This provides plenty jobs for laborer’s and those looking to become medical professionals.
That covers the building of hospitals in major cities, after which, th PCG expand operations to cover the whole of the population quickly and get them up to speed on the services it can provide them (tests, vaccinations, treatments). The PCG make regular check-ups a big focus to help increase familiarity with the system.
Costs would initially be around 6k per capita but would fall to 3k per capita by the end of this time . To pay for this venture, the kingdom has extending the shared payments with the PCG for a total of 70 years of co-funded healthcare. By the end of those years however, a newborn citizens average life expectancy would be around 130-140 years of age.

Through the actions and negotiations with the PCG. The popularity of both the kings party and the Holt family have shot up 10% each.

Just a general update on where my country is:

Democratic Reforms have been occurring and a Presidential Election occurred.
Daichi Eto of the Kaiyu won with a slim margin of victory of about 50.2%.
A lot of attention of the unpopularity of the Cyborg Pact which former President Morioka spoke out against. Also another issue of paramount importance was the democratic reforms to the country and how the redistribution of power would look like.
As the head negotiator of the people with the Seijin for the distribution of political power one will have to see which way they go.

POLITICAL PARTIES:
Kaiyu
Beliefs: The Kaiyu are the more liberal party. Less focused on religious based politics and more supportive of neutrality the Kaiyu are more oriented to just trying to keep the peace.

Shukotai
Beliefs: The Shukotai are a more religious based party. They support a strict standard of society and are supportive of a less directly democratic government. They believe faith is essential, and that the state should also always be prepared for conflict.

OOC: Expect me to be less involved now. Real life stuff. But I do intend to try to update my country.

Times are changing.

Across the Imperium, citizens were encouraged to celebrate the ascension of the Immortal Emperor on this day. There were concerts, plays to commemorate the occasion, fireworks, and all manner of other festivities. However, fireworks were not the only things exploding on Empire Day. In different cities scattered across the Empire, terrorists struck.

A jet carrying a mid-level security official was struck with an anti-aircraft missile and went down in flames over Getapol. A small pocket force belonging to the 5th Legion was brutally slaughtered by unknown assailants. A public statue of the Emperor exploded in downtown Valparaiso, interrupting a speech by the local mayor. Several intelligence officers were killed in a bomb strike at a state party in New London.

Most surprisingly, however, was the television report. Somehow, a small group of insurrectionists infiltrated the Ceonian broadcasting network and managed to hold the main station in New Cyonica hostage. Viewers only saw the screen go black before they then broadcast the following message:

"Greetings, paisanos. You may not know it, but we are all brothers and sisters in this crisis. The tyrant, the self-proclaimed Emperor, has ruled over Ceona with an iron fist for far too long. His rise to power was the result of the foulest corruption this glorious nation has ever known. The weak, spineless government that allowed that rise failed us, failed its people. James Astor has silenced all opposition and murdered every rival, but that ends now. He ascended by corruption, now let him fall by it. We, the saviors of Ceona, will root out the rot at the core of this nation and restore it. This time, we will do it for the people.

Hail to the revolution. Hail to the People's Alliance.

Hail to Ceona."

Following the momentous events of Empire Day, many citizens of the Empire received a video on their computers by Arthur Justinius Alba, who would be, according to many accounts, the rightful Imperator of Cyon. He voiced his support for the revolution and urged citizens to act to restore their freedoms. He also uttered a phrase that would come to be remembered by all who heard it: "Freedom is priceless. It is what must be defended, no matter the cost."

The video mysteriously vanished from all computers after about an hour, but it had already spread too much to be fully silenced.

At the most recent Dividends Festival, many in South America turned their attentions to Ceona, following the tumultuous events of Empire Day.

All along the border, people gather with gifts for the Cyonian people (food, toys, medical supplies) and either hand them over to, or leave them for collection by, the soldiers manning the border checkpoints.

Gabriel Alonso, having recently won a landslide victory to become the PCG's new Terran CEO, offered his condolences to those killed in the recent attacks. He went on to say that the people of Ceona faced a difficult road ahead, as political upheaval shakes the nation, but that the Corporation would like to offer whatever help it could to the people at this time.

The Emperor has personally thanked the PCG for their kind words.

In an unprecedented display of retributive power, several full Legions have cooperated with local law enforcement and the intelligence agency to hunt down the rebel cells scattered across the nation. One of the heads of the national intelligence agency went on the air to express his own personal zeal in bringing the rebels to justice. "We will not rest until they are brought to justice or their graves. This is an act of war, and any sympathizers will be treated as terrorists, criminals, and ene enemies of the state. We will find you. If you suspect a neighbor or family member of being a rebel sympathizer, we urge you to report them to your local police immediately. We will leave no stone unturned."

Leaked government reports indicate that most of the rebels may be headquartered in or near Valparaiso in the Province of Chile. This has been a hotspot for insurrectionists since the early days of the Imperium.

With the help the Ceona Empire has given the Kingdom, Duke Vasquero, grandson of the emperor, convinced King Bryan to send Prince Tyler and a militia of 20,000 to Ceona to help evacuate the wealthy members of the Ceonian elite, afraid of the changes to the nation and immigrate them to the kingdom. The immigrants will be settled in the newly rebuilt city of Grand Junction.
