Today marks the funeral of the late Kaiser Johann II in St. Micheal Cathedral in central Volkstalle, on the major lanes, the people of Tuirsland had flocked to see their monarch being delivered to his final stage. The funeral was attended by the monarchs of Britain, Norway, Sweden, Greece, and Bulgaria, some former monarchs of the now-annexed countries of Yugoslavia, Netherlands, Denmark, and Romania, and the Major Military figureheads of Tuirsland.
The late Kaiser was celebrated for his heroic defense of the Kaiserreich against the Nazis during the Border Wars of 2043-2049, he was known by the people as a saint. His family had regarded him as a figurehead, an example to which they must follow.
As His Imperial Majesty's hearse was passing, the people were noticeably heard singing the Imperial Anthem, Heil dir im Siegerkranz, some cried while others were bowing down to the ground in respect to the bereaved family and the accomplishment of the late Kaiser. While passing through Mandelsberg District, where some escaped Jews, Slavs, and other victims of the Nazi atrocities were allowed refuge, the people seemed to marched alongside the funeral parade and then stopping at the end of the district. At Marburg Castle (Not the same), 25'' Artilleries fired for three hours and the Royal Guards are also fired their ceremonial rifles that lasted for a much longer time. At 12:00 noon, the hearse had arrived at the cathedral and the mass started that lasted for an hour.
At 1:00, the hearse once again left the cathedral to head to the Schlossenburg Castle to be buried.
2060 RP: North American Awakening
King North meets with his cabinet, advisors, and department heads to consider what should be done to secure the future of the Royal Republic.
Gen. Grady: "Your highness we must go east to Europe, its the only logical area of expansion"
Adm. Kingston: "The Pacific is also ripe, Japan has been in disarray for years now and I'm sure they couldn't muster an organized Defense."
King North: "Both ideas are promising, we'll split Military power between both Atlantic and Pacific Theaters, but first we must take Greenland and Iceland as they are key jump points to and from Europe."
A few hours later King North Declares War against Greenland and Iceland: Mass Mobilization begins, RNAAF Fighter Bombers take off from New Foundland to bomb Icelandic and Greenlandic Defense Positions as well as Coast Guard Bases to clear the path for a Naval Invasion of the Islands
The prince reads thw paper with utter disgust, no more than, contempt. Within those layers of emotions is a distant fear.
"The Americans think they push their way around into Europe, to control the northern arctic waters. With new drilling in the arctic, our own economy may be of less importance. "
The prince nearly pounds his fist on his desk, but restrains himself.
"Send two messages, one to the German Reich."
An aide rushes to take the note
"I suggest you do something about this blatant, aggressive American expansion. Invading Greenland is preposterous. Tread smartly, but carefully."
The message is sent to the German government after all the due process and formalities which are expected are added
"A condemnation of this blatant aggression, get Jefil to write it. Send a message to the Russian leader, we should discuss this, rather more personally."

New Bill passed in Gosduma: Liberty Of religion
After 30 years of complete authoritarianism, in 2056 Grand Duke Nikolay(Nicholas) I succeeded from his father Aleksei(Alexis) I. He passed reforms which gave more liberty to the people and in 2059 gave nearly complete power to the duma in the condition that he could overrule it if he disagrees with their decision. He pushed for this bill to be passed. Now, Prime Minister Mikhail Kuropatkin has proposed to pass this bill. The votes were:
The bill was passed. In an interview just after that, Nikolay I said:
“I pushed for the bill to be passed because I saw how much unpopularity I would have if I haven’t done it. It was essential. Secondly, god doesn’t want to make us robots that just obey him all the time, god has created us with free will, and we have to respect his decisions.”
WAR MINISTER ALEKSANDR PETROV ASSASINATED!
Today, during a conference with the press concerning his opinion on the recent bill, War Minister Aleksandr Petrov saw something unusual. It was one of his bodyguards, he hadn’t seen that one before. Petrov looked closer, and recognized a famous anarchist. Petrov knew he was in danger but let the conference finish to approach the “bodyguard” and stab him through the stomach with his army knife. At that moment, the anarchist fired. Both men fell dead on the floor. Petrov’s two other bodyguards called the Police, and soon everyone knew about the death of the famous hero who had fought in many wars.....
The Police suspect the anarchists collaborating with western spies, as such a difficult operation couldn’t have been Carried out by the anarchists alone. After attending Petrov’s funeral and paying his final respects to the old war minister, Grand Duke Nikolay I appointed Aleksandr Alekseyev, Commander of the infantry of the Grand Duchy Of Moscow, War Minister.
Sorry I had very little time this week.
Three days since the Funeral of the late Kaiser, everything had pretty much returned to normal, with some, like Her Imperial Majesty, Queen Mary von Romanov, are still depressed from the loss of her husband. Meanwhile, His Majesty, the Regent, Kaiser Freidrich II, had been alarmed by the German encroachment to the borders, "My lords, I have been very worried about this German activity in our very borders, I have received reports of tensions rising in Eisenburg and Golte. My personal secretary, Martin Fredrikson had suggested sending a letter to the Reichsminister of the Foreign Affairs and ask for a meeting with the Kaiser himself and the Reichsminister." Prince Karl von Pieneburg had interrupted, "Forgive me, Your Majesty, but, surely we could use our dear cousins in the Reich to be our representatives? All of them are in the inner circle and some are relatives of Hitler! Contact Helge von Battenburg or Freidrich Hitler, and tell them we need their help! Dear Friedrich had been useful to us in negotiating with Adolf in 59', surely we can use him again with his cousin or whatever his relations with the current Fuhrer," The Princely Council murmured agreeably with the Prince of Pieneburg, His Majesty finally spoke, "I agree with you, Karl, but, unfortunately, we could only use our relatives for dire situations, and for now, they are drained of their influence, what we plan to do for now is to contact the Foreign Minister of the Reich and open negotiations, meeting adjourned!"
Prime Minister Sir Maximillian Thiemo was stuck in the Imperial Chambers was debating against the opposition National Social Party about Bill #44, the debate was about the minor racial groups of Slavs in the Duchy of Orlov-Lvov, suddenly, out of nowhere, a group of men-in-black entered the room, their suits had the arms of the Staatspolize and dragged the elderly Prime Minister towards the wall, where they opened a door and vanished, "What on Earth? Inspector! What's this all about?" The Prime Minister aggressively said, "I'm so sorry, Prime Minister, but we are going red-alert," "w-wha? Why?" "Minister Frederick Henning has been shot" The entirety of Tuirsland had been put into lockdown as news of an assassination of a high-ranking member of the government, some had suspected it to be the Prime Minister himself, or the Regent himself, but they were still scared as the Geheime Staatspolizei had been mobilized to watch the nation for suspected activities, and the GSP-2234 had been focused solely towards Germany and Russia.
At 7:00 PM, the nightly-tradition of the Tuirian people of watching their televisions was suddenly interrupted by a blue-screen that reads: "THIS IS AN OFFICIAL BROADCAST FROM THE ******", "Greetings, Tuirsland, We are the Ukrainian People's Front, I am Obergruppenfuhrer Bruno and I have killed Minister Henning of your Foreign Affairs. I do not want death, but I will kill your government if tempted, so, I want you to comply with our term, leave Ukraine and return to Germany! If you do not do thi-----"
Amidst growing concerns about Alaska, King North Authorizes a GAR Division to be stationed near the border as the first line of Defense, should an invasion come.
Meanwhile on the civilian level
Engineers and Laborers set sail to captured parts of Iceland and Greenland to repair and improve local infrastructure. King North assures the populations that despite the knowingly unneeded war that was just waged that living conditions and safety would improve beyond pre-war levels and that they would be granted more autonomy as time goes on, and if all goes to plan they will have among the highest living standards in the world.
Ok overall I settle in a province in Australia then camped and the natives just left things without any attacks whys that idk
After a long period of sleep the Virgin islands has declared itself a global Empire and has drawn up top secret plans for expansion into unknown territory, the Virgin Government sends a diplomat to its Northern neighbors to secure trade deals and get an american alliance thing started the Emperor also has the diplomat tell The Americans the the Emperor is willing to visit DC if they wish to have us.
The North Atlantic Provinces and Nica def
Upon hearing the sudden and unexpected assasination of Aleksandr Petrov, the Kingdom of Jerusalem sends its deepest condolences to the Russian state and people for their loss. This however, is not the only action taken.
The princes cabinet is almost entirely united on who they believe is behind this: the Americans.
"They invade Greenland the little sand snakes, taking Greenland, and with it strategic positions and the potential for arctic oil! Now they assasinate the Russian minister of war! This calls for action against this unbridled aggression!"
The caninet for the most part fervently agrees with the sentiment of the minister of war Licasian, with doubts being shown but not spoken.
The MOSSAD deployes their sleeper agents all across the United states, already infiltrated thr highest levels of government. Four congressional aides, three congressman and one Senator are agents, the assistant of the deputy director of the agricultural department, and other agents.
However, the grand scheme cannot come into fruition without intelligence from the secretary of war, and so Lewis Dullis as is known by his alias, a veteran of the army in ground combat and later logistics, applies to be his aide, a deer serving for six years with two star General Pattinson.
The killing of the Turisland minsiter of foriegn affairs even further shocks the prince, who orders for the bodyguards of his attache be checked for their loyalty, as well as those who serve the fourteen minsiters. Any bodyguard who has not served for a minimum of ten years hast their lives poured over, and at the slightest suspicion of disloyalty will be relived of duties. Those who are more than mere suspects will be interrogated.
This plan is a sound one, overlooking one key aspect however. Eleven year veteran Robb Nehlfwin.
The prince, while sipping tea and reading the paper- making notes for the meeting of the fourteen minsiters as well as making notes for books he wishes to order and a Chinese dish he would love to try, tries to relax. He is sorrounded by four veterans after all, Nehlfwin, Telin, Richard and Ackamar.
Then, he hears the cocking of a pistol.
The prince has been shot in his upper ribs, with his whole world feeling dizzy. He feels less pain then total confusion.
This shot, due to the quick reflexes of Richard reaches his glutucus maximus.
The prince is spirited away to the hospital as Nehlwifin is apprehended by his fellow bodyguards. In truth, he is a radical secessionist, but the prince is conviced that this was the work of the Americans, becoming paranoid.
Due to the Prince nearly being assassinated and now in critical condition, his own son Rahal is sent to Moscow. The Russian leader is greeted warmly by Rahal, and after formalities and niceties, business is discussed.
"While those foolish Germans and their equally worthy of that title Turislandians divide Europe, America encroaches. The balance of power is threatned, both of hs are threated by this. Your oil pipeline is potentially threatned as well as your influence in the middle east, as well as my oil revenue and intrests in a more, divided Europe."
"My father believes the Americans tries to assasinate him, nonsense of course, but it is still imperative that we broker an alliance."
i was just trying vibe guess america wants to invade me, i did nothing wrong, im just a fasicst empire in europe
"THIS IS A PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE REICHSPOLIZEI, THIS IS NOT A DRILL--WE ARE ABOUT TO FACE A MAJOR LOCKDOWN, THE GOVERNMENT WILL BE DISMISSED, THE REICHSPOLIZEI AND THE REICHSARMEE WILL BE POSTED TO THE STREETS, AND A CURFEW WILL BE SET AT 4:OO PM UP TO 8:00 AM, ALL CRIMES ARE NOW PUNISHABLE BY DEATH. LANG LEBE DIE KAISERREICH!
His Majesty had been awoken by the Royal Guards marching in the palace and the noise of the incoming tanks, as he gets ready for a meeting with the Princely Council, a series of explosions occured just outside the Palace, where he can see several cars being stopped by the Reichspolizei. As he descends down the stairs to the Royal Apartments, on the West-wing of the Stadtsberg Palace, to eat breakfast with his family, he was ambushed by his personal secretary, Martin Sieghard, "Forgive me, Your Majesty, but there are some urgent things we should tackle," "Is it the explosions? Oh God, Martin, can we do this over at breakfast?" "Sure, Sir," As His Majesty and Martin continues their descent, they were greeted by Timmy and Francis, the two Husky pets of the Regent, and then at the table was Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, and their children, Karl and Johann, "So, Your Majesties, Your Royal Highnesses, we have reports coming from the Kaiser Wilhelm Royal Hospital about the explosions," "Hmm," "It had been confirmed t-that," "What, Martin?" "Prince Karl von Pieneburg, Adolf von Nordenburg, Anton Ludwig-Victoria, John Orlov is dead," "What? How?" "Their cars were caught in the explosions made by a 1993-Daedalus Model Car in Stadtsburg Mall, it was suspected to be planted by the Ukrainians."
Paul Zon Von Baron the foreign minster of the reich answer
"Hello,what do you want"
His Imperial Majesty was unfortunately stuck in Tuirsland, and a representative, one that is a close member of the "The Nazi Royalties", Freidrich Volkstalle-Von Ribbentrop, the grandson of Joachim von Ribbentrop, who'd negotiated with Tuirsland for Neutrality in exchange of territories in Rumania, "Heil Hitler, Paul, I'm here in behalf of my dearest cousin, the Tuirian Kaiser, to talk about the current situation at the border, since he's stuck in his god-forsaken Reich fo some unbeknownst reasons, I shall be the representative of Tuirsland,

Shòu China (/Shō ˈChīnə/), Chinese: (/瘦 中国/Shòu Zhōngguó/), Cantonese: (守 中國/Sou Zung gwok/), officially The Imperial Empire of Shòu China , Chinese: (/英制帝国瘦 中国/) Cantonese: (/帝國帝國守 中國 /) Chinese: (/中国/) or rather commonly known as China is a constitutional monarchy legislated by the imperial parliament and subject to the greater court and governed by the prime minister and emperor, who serves as the head of government and head of state respectively. China is located in the region of East Asia, their are 23 provincial states as well as 11 special administrated zones and 1 incorporated territory.
China serves as an example of a region that graced the period of Decolonization and has become an immense superpower in the twenty first century, it has become a central hub for travel, finance, shipping, and manufacturing the nation also exports its culture, being that it is at the epicenter of Asia's economic and cultural awakening as well as bouts an immense naval fleet. The influence and wealth originated in the former Qing Dynasty due in part to both the historical influence of the nation and it being the site of the Oriental Pearl Aeroport thee central hub for a new frontier as it has became the busiest spaceport in the world and the One World Silk Road an imperial insensitive to greater connect China to the world by land, air, and sea.
The name of the Shòu Dynasty originated from its predecessor as Qing emperor Xianfeng died so did the former empire in its place came a new reign that of Empress Cixi this established a new dynasty, 瘦 or Shòu translated to english means thin, the meaning for this name is meant to represent the thin line that the young empire navigated between triumphant success and spiraling decline as the nation was plagued early on by domestic and foreign politics and a fleeting economy. (Shòu/) emerged as the prominent name in the west to describe the new dynasty. This name seems to first be quoted by British diplomat Thomas Francis Wade in 1868 in his work following his famous textbook that romanized the chinese language the year prior stated, "The state of China has undergone immense change within the last decade, Empress Cixi has ascended to the throne in the year of our Lord 1861, has now joined our own majesty the queen Victoria to not bring an end to the old order but better yet to bring rule to an evermore agressive world, we see this in the empire of China they are treading down a thin line of ice, their success shouldn't just matter to the balance of the east but to all western powers with vast empires that become evermore reliant on their colonies, citizens, and connections. But let us not be ignorant either as the French leader Napoleon once said "China is a sleeping giant. Let her lie and sleep, for when she awakens she will astonish the world," and with that I leave you one word Shòu : 瘦 meaning the thin empire because with either its success or its downfall the West should be trembling."
After 225 years of Manchu reign under the rule of the Qing dynasty, two days after the death of the Xianfeng Emperor on 1861 August, 24th the high rankinging council members met at the Peking imperial palace to discuss the matter of finding a new emperor. Although empress Cixi had different plans as she had foreseen the death of the late emperor a truth that many did not want to admit, she had planned for years her escape. The second the funeral was over in peking a series of motions were set into action as Cixi and her imperial court fled to the eastern capital at Xi'an their she was officially recognized as imperial empress of China daughter of 10,000 suns the lord of heaven. After some odd years of destabilization and infighting in the region the elites of the new nation launched a campaign of nationalism and reunification of the Cantonese Southern region to unite the separated peoples and would later handel the ethnically Han north. In 1868 with the help of the British professor and diplomat Thomas Francis Wade official relations were propped up with the west and monarchy in exchange for help unifying and administrating the vast empire the British would be rewarded with the territory of Hong Kong island.
And the most significant reclamation of land was in the period of 1927-1937 where their was a British effort to contribute to a fleeting Nationalist China as the Chinese civil war was raging over national parties in the end the emperor with aid from Nationalist forces and the british turned the tide of the war before the arrival of WWII and the Japanese empire. As well with acquisitions and expansion prior to the civil war them being the eastern half of the Korean peninsula and the island of Jeju. Further expansion came from the end of the great second world war and the overthrowing of the Japanese empire that had captured Chinese territory in the previous century. These lands were the eastern portion of the Korean peninsula and the island of Taiwan in August 28, 1945.
Instrumental to the success was the stability and prosperity offered by the Chinese monarchy and opening the region to the west and introducing special administrated cities that served as Tax havens to encourage foreign trade, investment, and financial services. As well as the work of a prominent, aspiring, and charismatic leader Puyi the last Manchu emperor, there have been a total of 4 emperors and currently the position was appointed to Emperor Nichols Xiao.
The terrain of China remains consistent in nearly all regions of the nations that being the great divide between the Eastern and western territories, as someone would near the coast in the east they would find flat lands ripe with fertile soil with tributary rivers and canals extending from the massive river basins and deltas of the Yangtze and Yellow rivers. In the west one would find very mountainous regions including the Himalayas mountain range home to Mt Everest, beyond that on the border of central asia their exist a massive dessert. Tropical humid weather and the occasional tropical typhoon are common in the south.
Most of the agriculture production is located the Southeast of China as vast expanses of rice fields span the countryside.
A bulk of citizens in the nation now live in cities estimated (63%) The region is consisted of high density urban areas, surrounded by sprawling suburbs and rural plantations. Although most of the population is aging, due to the economic boom so was there a new rise in birth rates.
The nation although being ruled by Manchu-Han rulers is now centered around the east coast, and the largest ethic majority is ethnic Han Chinese.
And the ethnic minority being made of ethnic Manchu (descent from Northeast China)
The nation is not only culturally diverse but is also linguistically diverse as a variety of Asian languages are spoken.
Chinese, Cantonese are widely spoken and understood, As well as English being understood and spoken as a secondary Language.
Official Language: Chinese
The British brought their culture, language, and religion within a generation the Anglican and protestant christianity was the dominant faith over Buddhism and native beliefs, the establishment of a formal anglican branch in the region started with the construction of St Jhon's Cathedral in Hong Kong, and the appointment of an Asian patriarch to preside over the church's branch of Asia. Chinese population's supported missionaries that spread Christianity in the region, while Islam continued to spread in the island chains of Indonesia and Malaysia and did not become popular amongst the chinese.
The current Asian patriarch hails from Chongqing, born to Cantonese parents raised on a small family compound outside of the city and educated in the British capital at St Paul's cathedral there he was christened to became the patriarch of the region and gained favor throughout much of Asia. The prominence of the church in everyday life is heavily encouraged by the Chinese emperor.
Faith Make-up 1.)Christianity 2.)Buddhism 3.)Confucianism
China is a multicultural nation made up of a diverse Asian peoples, although there have been efforts by the Chinese empire to instill nationalism to the provinces to believe in a singular Chinese race, the pushes for a common identity has been successful as people refer to themselves as mostly Chinese.
Greater Chinese make-up:
1.)Han Chinese 2.)Cantonese 3.)Korean 4.)Taiwanese 5.)Manchu

The nation of China has had 4 emperors since its Independence in the 1860s, and in 1910 the first democratic elections were held, elected officials consisted of members of prominent Han Chinese families who regularly meet to vote on both foreign and domestic issues. When the sun would set on an emperor's reign that being from either resignation from office or pass on, the royal bloodline has since been blessed with heirs since its foundation. As for the prime minister a council would meet to vote on a new leader as their is no precedent for term limits. However in 1930 an official constitution was ratified, although citizens are not allowed to vote for their president/head of state, but rather vote for senators who represent the people at the Imperial Parliament where every 5 years congregate to vote on a new prime minister/head of government.
The citizens have the choice of voting for one of the three national parties, majority party Imperium Conservative/帝国保守派/帝國保守, the minority party Labor National/劳工国民/勞動國家, and third party One Joseon/壹朝鲜/壹約森/하나의 조선.
The Chinese monarchy has adopted a nationalist policy concerning international diplomacy, the ideal being exuding influence and power over its neighbors, the ideal "Greater China" includes policing the international waterways of East Asia, facilitating commercial trade in the surrounding waters, the thought being summarized by a quote from the director of foreign affairs, "Maintaining our status as the economic and political center of East Asia is imperative to maintaining stability and prosperity throughout the region. We must create an environment where our neighbors revolve around our schedule."
Surinam maintains formal relations with all UN recognized nations. As well as being involved in many trade and military organizations, as well as being aligned to the west and oldest ally being Great Britain.
Mission of diplomacy: "While the worlds light may be fleeting, We want the world to know that the Chinese shall never bow to darkness because, the light is imminent. Even if the sun should set on the state, the people will always carry the torch of China's spirit."
Greater China maintains the largest armed forces in the world, according to top officials the nation has all the worlds resources at its disposal, along with a combined man power exceeding any other nation with plentiful active and reserve personnel. Aided by recently passed policy dictating every citizen must serve 2 years within the ranks, and reserves the right to draft a male from every family, and reserves the right to bear nuclear weaponry.
The three armed forces that bow to the emperors whim, include the imperial navy, royal air-force, and the army. All reporting directly to the director of defense along with the imperial admiral who oversees all military operations, missions, and exercises. The imperial navy makes up almost seventy percent of the budget diverted to the armed forces, as projecting power over the many points of interest for the nation lies in the strategic waterways of the pacific ocean, yellow sea, south China sea, bay of Bengal, and the straight of Malacca.

Fully taking advantage of its strategic locations such as the east Chinese coast, the Pearl river delta, the island of Taiwan, as well as the peninsula of Korea allow China to be the prime economic center in all of Asia. The nation prides itself for being at the forefront of the shipping and tourism industries being the intermediaries in world travel and trade. Although in reality excels in the sectors of Financial services, and manufacturing. The foremost exports of the nation are crude and refined petroleum, raw and refined sugar, rice, luxury goods, fish, and plastics.
A quote from one of China's top economist states, "Greater China can best be summarized as the mainlands coast are lined with cities that bring in the investors the bankers, beyond that are seas of green plantations exporting rice and sugar, beyond the other side of the cities is the literal sea with the cargo ships exporting all the oil, the fish packaged in Chinese plastic sent to the west. And the coastal beaches bring the people, bring the planes, bringing the bankers and the investors back with their families, the Chinese cycle."
Chinese culture is a brilliant blend of Asian cultures, the ethnic Han people had great influence over the new culture and larger society, the elites knew their would never be true hegemony or a pure Chinese people because they simply don't exist, a true melting pot of diversity. The nation prides itself in traditional Cantonese foods mixed with the flavors and spices of the Southeast, most peoples enjoying Sino-Korean fusion or traditional British dishes.
Classical music in the period circa 18th-20th century consisted of a brilliant blend between native Cantonese and western instruments, best demonstrated by Pablo de Sarasate who toured through France and its former empire. Modern Chinese music referred to as C-Pop is enjoyed throughout the world and is the prime export of Chinese culture to the world as many can understand the blend of Chinese, English, and Cantonese lyrics pared to brilliant sounds of a people. The nation also has a growing cinema and television industry producing Asian film for domestic and foreign audiences with subtle addition of english direction and production produced for the masses.
Chinese diaspora includes a large abroad population, and maintaining cultural ties with citizens and Asians abroad by promoting the opening of Cultural heritage sites, developing Asian peoples urban centers around the world. As well as a policy known as "Huí Dào Guāngmíng" (/回到光明/回到光中/) or "Return to the Light" where second generation born Chinese abroad are encouraged to return to the motherland.
The central government holds the position that infrastructure when possible should be built and maintained by the private sector, including projects that serve the state. These massive public projects while used by the masses were funded and profited off by private entities, these projects included: dams, cargo ports, canals, nuclear power plants, off shore drilling operations, on shore fracking operations, railroads, highways, and airports.
A statement on Chinese infrastructure was best summarized in a BBC Documentary entitled The Century of Asia, "If you want to find where more than half of the worlds concrete is being pored, go to China.", "In the last decade alone the nation has laid enough concrete to slow down the earths rotation by a millisecond." The cities of the nation are modeled after European layouts of large public promenades, open wide boulevards, parks landmarks and monuments.
Thank you for including me on the map, and even going to the trouble to go out looking through my dispatches to fin a map of my territory but I would like to inform you that, that map is for one of my former nations I am so sorry to have caused this confusion and inconvenience but I have now updated the map so at your upmost convenience if you could please fix it, thank you.
Oh and on the map could I be referred to as Shòu China, but every one can just refer to me as Imperial China/China/Shòu China/ and if you need to quote me of course TamiyJP.
Ah al Sharhia Arrives in Xi'an | At approximately 9:40 AM ECST (Eastern Capital Standard Time) on the 26th of February, 2060,
China airlines flight Dynasty004 a non-stop service from Jerusalem to Xi'an arrivas punctual as usual at Daxing Int'l, the envoy sent by the Kingdom of Jerusalem is greeted by the sight of a 5-car motorcade and the Director of Foreign Affairs Henry Piào."May I be the first person to say Welcome to the eastern capital, Xian, and of course welcome to China. Let this day ring in the formal greetings between our two nations, and by the time the sun sets on this day may our friendship prosper for the next 10,000 sunsets." From the view of the motorcade the diplomat sees the boulevards lined with intercrossing flags of the two territories.
Within the hour the diplomat finds himself waiting at the imperial palace of Cixi an immaculate structure unlike any other on the scale of unimaginable scale reminding the diplomat of the former Minoan places of Kronos on the island of Crete as the crimson painted pillars common in chinese architecture was striking against a limestone facade. *Chinese Anthem Cup of Solid Gold begins to play* The envoy enters through the large gate to a massive courtyard where the imperial court have created a path to the Dragon Throne where the emperors piercing eyes are already staring directly into the envoys eyes. "Stop Where you are and let me great the proud Prince of Jerusalem's envoy myself. Come we have much to discuss about our relations and the prosperous future of ours." The emperor said in his thunderous deep voice. And with the wave of a hand the imperial court retreated to the palace without a second thought. Five hours passed in the grand courtyard where both parties discussed christianity, confucianism, and politics. At the end of the meeting in one of the many ballrooms of the palace the emperor encouraged the diplomat to inform the prince of jerusalem that official arrangements should be scheduled to open embassies and start work on Trade agreements and other formalities and with that as grand as their first meeting was it seemed that their goodbye was even more so, it was somehow stoic that after the eventful day the emperor went back to work without missing a beat.

Commonwealth Minister Rodrigo Rojas had been trying to connect to Volkstalle but failed several times. He feared that something had happened to the Imperial Homeland that would leave him and his administration in shambles. He had been elected no more than a week ago by a mass voter landslide and was sworn in three days ago at the Battle of Manila Shrine in EDSA. The next day, a convoy of black limousines had entered the Palace, carrying several men-in-black agents, who introduced themselves as "Staatspolizie-Asia Sector", the Palace security tried to scan their bio signatures, but the men doesn't show in any Database, even in the Official Stapo records, the men met with the Commonwealth Minister, giving him the necessary information that he badly needed since his victory in the last week's election, "We need you to fill out this, this and this to confirm that this meeting never existed and will never be, and to confirm that you have received us here and therefore allowed the Staatspolizei to enter this area whenever we like, whatever purpose we need to, without intervention from your guards," "W-what? Why? This is a house which had been given to my protection! I cannot allow you to do this!" "Well, either that, or you die, we assassinate you, and do the same to what happened to Tuirsland," "You did that too?" "No, it might be the Abwehr of Hitler, or the Okhrana of Russia, either way, it disrupted our missions in both countries, now, sign, or die." "Fine! I 'll sign, but can I get a copy of these documents?" "No," The men left, leaving the Commonwealth Minister somewhat confused.
A stealth submarine bearing the flag of the Russian Empire passes through the St. Petersburg and heads towards the Schleswig-Holstein port of Eckernforde, where the Nazis docks some of their oil tankers and even capital ships. The submarine heads towards the eastern side of the port and fired its torpedos to some oil tankers, then suddenly redirected towards the main port, and fired towards the KMS Bismarck and Koenigsburg, sinking the latter and damaging the former, the submarine then sent an "accidental" message towards Berlin and Moscow and quickly excapes towards the North Sea, which met with the KMS Victoria, a Tyoe-XV Cruiser of Tuirsland, commanded by the Staatspolizei Admiral Friedrich Bose, which welcomed the submarine officers who attacked the naval port in Schleswig-Holstein.
The Ukrainian Intent | At approximately 6:25 AM ECST (Eastern Capital Standard Time) on the 27th of February, 2060
Below the Cixi Palace in a dimly lit room 6 stories below the eastern wing an off the records meeting is being held with only essential personal in attendance, already waiting in the room is most of the imperial directors and a few members of the royal court are seated awaiting the emperor's grace. With his presence the discussion starts immediately. "We all know why we are here, you all have failed, we all failed the people of China and the greater Asian region, how could we have allowed this?" *A map of the continent of Asia appears in hologram above the conference table* "This is not west we cannot blame our entanglements on past prime ministers or cabinets, why we are all practically direct descendants of the same people that were in our positions two centuries ago we are that same dynasty that allowed this to happen!" *The territories of China and the Philippine Islands illuminate on the map* "No one is to leave this room or eat a single grain of rice until we have a resolution to this entanglement. Now let us discuss what we know which their is not much of. The Island was recolonized by the european power known as Ukraine who despite entering the 20th century probably as a week nation was somehow able to overthrow Spanish rule on the islands, now--- The emperor is interrupted by a member of the royal court tasked with the collection of foreign intelligence. "It was actually liberated by the Americans first or possibly it was the Japanese." The emperor annoyed by the unnecessary comment and quite rude interruption gives an intense glare to the official and continuous on aggressively. "It doesn't matter how the Ukrainians came within the possession of the islands what dose is this a rather odd european power that we have no idea of their capabilities right on East Asia's front door step and worse yet we don't know their intent within our very own region. Its very existence challenges our Chinese hegemony that we currently enjoy our strategic points of interest, our One World Silk Road initiative, trade and commerce, shipping lanes that ensure Chinese goods make it to western markets, and or supremacy as the cultural and economic epicenter of Asia."The Minister of defense has foreseen this issue and is ready to resolve it, he proposed his idea to the emperor."What you say is true as of know we should all keep an eye on our southeast neighbour, but for now lets remain cool I for one say today at noon at our usual press meeting we announce that we wish to meet with the Filipino leader in manila and our delegations will meet for some classic soft power diplomacy, you know the usual flash a little money a little statics and promise of trade agreements and bam you have yourself an embassy request. This is the right choice for one main reason the world grows tenser every day we are on the brink of war waging and we do not wish for an Asian front and you never know the Ukraines can be a valued ally in a possible war with Germany as I hear their not fond of them." "Brilliant man"
