Elparia Regional Message Board
King Azrael the First announced in a surprise press conference today that he is willing to pay the ransom of the Entarian vessels.
"I for once took politics as a game of Men. But with each word that reaches me from the N.R Territories and Quangsuh I regret not my lack of interest in these games. Perhaps in the time of my father Politics was graced by the touch of Men. Now it is but a sandbox full of boys."
He commented as he announced he's withdrawing the equivalent of One million TSD from his personal accounts to pay for the ransom of the Entarian Transport ships in Xichang; in full accordance to the terms laid out by the Quangsuh authorities.
When questioned about his intentions and the Entarians refusing to pay he commented.
"I pity the fighting men oathsworn to a government willing to stoop to such petty affairs and luxuries akin to principle when they clearly have none. As for their government; they'll clearly be in need of every penny they can save in the coming months."
Lastly the Good King hints to the press of an upcoming announcement from the Federal Government and Prime Marshal Altis as to a push for a 'Right of Return' for jews across the world.
The last comment overshadowing the rest of the conference.
Response to Konzask
The Imperial Government has responded positively to the continued thawing of Minachian-Konzaskan relations. Although some have claimed that the KCP’s concession may merely pandering to Imperial sensibilities for some as-of-yet-unknown goal, the Foreign Bureau continues to support the idea of “cautious optimism” with regards to relations with Konzask. A spokesman of the Emperor today commented on the situation, saying that “His Imperial Majesty believes that the improvement of relations with the Konzaskans may be of some benefit to us, especially with regards to preserving the sovereignty of the nations of Remus and to maintaining the security of Imperial interests. However, His Majesty also believes that we should maintain our suspicions of the KCP’s motives, and any agreement made with them should be done with the utmost care. Moreover, if they were to do anything to double-cross us, we would not hesitate to respond with an equal and greater retaliation.” Concerning the offers for Prime Minister Norbanus to visit Safingrad and for a non-aggression pact to be made within the two countries, the Prime Minister has respectfully declined the invitation, citing his preoccupation with domestic duties as well as the fact that it is somewhat odd for a Minachian prime minister to travel abroad on diplomatic business. However, the Imperial Court has instead offered to send HIH the Prince Tiberius, Count of the Imperial Palace and the Emperor’s brother and most trusted advisor and representative, to Safingrad to fulfill the same duty that the Prime Minister would. The Prince is known for his diplomatic shrewdness and his role in representing the Emperor personally in various foreign nations - even more than normal ambassadors and government officials - and he would be able to negotiate the details of the non-aggression pact along with those diplomats already present in the Minachian Ministry to Konzask.
With respect to the pact itself, the Government has stated that it is willing to accept such a deal for the purpose of easing tensions and “securing a formal agreement on Konzaskan influence in Remus and vice versa for Minachian influence in Berinsky.” However, public opinion remains greatly opposed to cooperating with Konzask, and with the new order established by last year’s political reforms, it might prove challenging for the ratification of such a treaty to pass the Assembly of the People.
Denunciation of Entaria
The Senate and Government have joined with Konzask and others in denouncing Entaria for its “illegal, ill-advised, and improper” actions in Quangsuh. In a Senate Resolution, the Empire has formally condemned Entaria’s refusal to comply with the requests and fines issued by the Quangsui government, as well as the country’s disregard for the UN’s authority. While Minachia believes that intervention continues to be necessary in Quangsuh, especially in the occupied Nurasalovsk, it also believes this should be done exclusively under the guise of the UN and by nonpartisan peacekeepers, not by what the Foreign Minister has called “egotistical, self-righteous, and idiotic Entarians.”
Konzask officially accepts Minachias counter offer in terms of Safingrad. The KCP has also stated it's excitement with the acceptance of the non aggression pact. The people of Konzask have been relatively excited with the moves of reconciliation, many excited to see Konzask play a more important role on the world stage.
Night Three in Xichang
In response to the Entarians demand, the Federal State Tangshi responded with: "No." followed by: "Any Entarian demand that deviates from our simple requests will not be acknowledged."
That night the usual Haoist music blasting through the loudspeakers were also accompanied by the hum of military vehicles, as Hao III and J-22 rocket teams set up along the perimeter of the port, along with convoy after convoy of troop trucks. That night 10,000 QPLA Mobile Infantry would pour into Xichang, lining the parameters of the port supported by heavy armor units from Jiaotou Military Base, Xianshui. The 'no shoot' order was once again relayed around the city and Entarian forces.
The Zionian Alternative
Quangsuh begrudgingly accepts King Azrael's generous offer to pay the 1 million TSD "parking fee" for Entaria, more to humiliate Entaria, sending a message that "one of the mightiest nations in the world cant even pay their port duties". The generosity of the King did draw some question into the intentions of Zion but the opinions of those few were overwhelmed by the Governments desire to rid the Entarians of Xichang to allow trade to properly commence.
Byzantinius and Quangsui Trade
Quangsui domestic tech giant Quanwei accepts the offer presented by the Principius, however states it, as a private company under Quangsui employment law cannot manufacture its products overseas. However offers that it has industrial manufacturing facilities in Quangsuh (Headquarters in Panyang, Dashan Region) along with plentiful workers and resources. It does however offer to house Overseers in Quangsuh to assure its product is of quality. In response to claims that the product is dangerous and prone to exploding CEO Chan Huawei stated that: "Our Quangsui facilities produce an unmatched level of our electronic product annually due to our high employment and factory floor space. Our company works its hardest to ensure each generation of cellphone is of higher quality than the last, I also stress that our quantity of the product is unparalleled, for half the price of any other global competitor."
SECRET- Return of Haoism
As Sukegei settles into his presidency, it hits him that he is confronted with the same problems as late president Brother Hao. Under Haos regime Sukegei as vice-president was a man of little words who would follow orders without question, usually leading him to run the nation while Hao was overseas or at one of his many estates. While Sukegei ran the nation, he was forced to under the strict principles of 'Communism with Quangsui Characteristics', also known as 'Haoism'. The effort of running the PRQS, while at the same time Hao would make bold and controversial decisions putting immeasurable amounts of pressure on Sukegei, took its toll. Resulting in Hao purchasing a $6 million TSD Villa in Trimania equipped with Quangsui artwork, staff and a QSSG detachment. It was first considered when Hao noticed that Sukegei was suffering from depression from the extreme stress of running Quangsuh. After Haos death Sukegei worked to undo the system of total hierarchy, supporting free enterprise and co-operation through the love of ones nation. Sukegeui began encouraging democracy in an effort to tear away the top down hierarchies of Hao. However, now confronted with the task of feeding 180 million citizens, with the ever present threat of invasion and an uncooperative peoples, Sukegei began seeing where Hao got his thinking from. Obviously he knew that Hao was a greedy and selfish man, but looking past that, the fundamentals of running the nation as Quangsuh and even Berinsky for that matter had been run for the past thousand years it was obvious that if the nation needed to survive it needed to be strong. And strength comes from power. Power comes from control.
Xichang, Xianshui Region, Quangui Federation: The drab grey morning of Xichang was interupted by hundreds of military hardware rumbling down the streets. Most heading to the port to ward of the Entarian menace, many however stopped in the streets and began installing bright banners of the Quangsui Government from every flagpole, arching lamppost and overpass. Within a matter of hours the city was alive with the red, gold and blue of the Quangsui staple the sound of a million fluttering banners added to the vibrant hum from the heart of the Federation. That same day all Quangsui news stations hosted the same picture, Yi Sukegei dressed in similar garb as his predecessor, standing over the city from the steps of the Tangshi, before delivering a patriotic speech. Later that day all major cities within Quangui Nuraslovask were showered in pro-government leaflets as the streets below were plastered with cheerful posters. Despite the Federations dire economic situation, a further billion TSD were injected directly to the Regional governments, for use of how they see fit.
Silicon Valley Gone Red
With Kitnex rapid rise of success, and the fact the Konzaskan tech industry is Konzask's largest domestic industry, on top of the fact Konzask has begun entering deeper and deeper into western markets, Kitnex has decided to put it's products into global circulation. Initially starting with a "trial run" with selling Kitnex smart appliance's and phones in both Konzask and Trimainia, Kitnex has announced that it's mobile device's will begin circulation in the international free market. Although Konzask itself is fairly stringent about usage of the free market, at the very least on it's home soil, Konzask has become increasingly more and more open to the nations west of Berinsky. As one could expect, despite putting products and presences out in the free market, Konzask is very picky on who it lets invest or in the country, and from what nations it allowed to establish economic ties within Konzask, one example would be the fact most if not all Entarian products, goods and resources are effectively completely and totally barred from circulation in Konzask, same with Quangsuh.
With Kitnex and Konzaskan made products now entering global consumer markets the KCP not only hopes it will rapidly help increase the pace of the 10 Year Plan, but also utilize Konzask's massive tech industry to it's fullest potential. Many lower KCP members have jokingly made off comments about the "Red Silicon Vally", while Kitnex itself has begun advertising itself as a "Better Alternative to Entaria", or running slogans such as "Why support Entaria when you can support quality?". With Kitnex entering the global market, one can only ponder which Konzask or KCP companies will next.
Aesidia formally accepts the commencement of trade negotiations between the two countries, hoping it’ll serve to hasten the establishment of proper ties between the two countries.
Konzask is both in an advantageous position within the eastern hemisphere, in a contentious region of Aesidian interest, but the two nations also share a rich history and cultural background, one robust enough that one may consider the two to be intrinsically linked in identity.
One notable mention of Aesidian receptiveness towards Konzask was made on social media recently by a high-profile member of the Foreign Ministry, which read: “Despite our political differences, us and our counterpart Konzask share many fundamental ideals in foreign policy. Enormous strategic interest to us. Looking forward to cooperate! Väldigt lovande!” Which accumulated 36k likes and 2.7k shares by 11:56 am, Tuesday SST.
With the Aesidian acceptance of trade, and being open to further diplomatic ties, the KCP has stated their excitement to work with "Konzask's Cultural Partner". With this, the KCP has already proposed further diplomatic discussion to formalize closer Aesidia-Konzaski ties outside the CSAT, with the KCP stating that "Konzask and Aesidia are not only cultural brothers, but already share a defensive pact within the CSAT. It is only natural that our two anti imperialist states draw closer in a more official manor". With this, it implies the KCP is hinting at being open to discuss a formal alliance between Konzask and Aesidia.
With the current situation with Entaria and Quangsuh, and the increase in ties, Konzask has also proposed joint naval and military exercises with Aesidia, the Konzaskan Armed Forces stating "It is in the best interest of both anti imperialist states to collaborate on a more professional level.".
On a more civil note, the KCP has proposed a shared cultural festival with Aesidia. It would be an annual event that would alternate in location each year (one year in Konzask, one year in Aesidia etc). The event itself is intended as a way to celebrate the shared, joint culture and history shared by both nations. The Konzaskan UN Delegate to the General Assembly, who has garnered a rather large online fallowing due to his staunch position against the Entarian delegate on social media actually left a reply to the Foreign Ministry Member, stating "It would be a great privilege's and honor to cooperate further with Aesidia. We equally look forward to the future ourselves, слава на свободните работници по света!". (glory to the free workers of the world)
In response to the recent flurry of proposals made by the KCP, the Aesidian embassy based in Konzask lodged a proposal to hold a summit between the two nations, meant to openly discuss the current proposals, as well as how to take the two-countries’ relationship forward in the near future.
The KCP accepts
