The Alliance of Dictators Regional Message Board
Once the plane carrying the Chinese delegation was inside Veradacian airspace, it picked up some escorts. Two fighters, proudly displaying the roundel of the Veradacian Army Air Corps. "Good day, we'll be escorting you to Xoysa International." Came the voice of one of the pilots, She repeated the message in - frankly terrible - Mandarin Chinese. The jets held formation, practically herding the diplomatic plane towards the airport.
Once contact was made with Xoysa Air Traffic Control, the two jets peeled off, heading towards the military section of the airport. The Chinese plane was given a landing pattern and would set down on runway C. They found a motorcade waiting for them after they finished taxiing to the designated area. Dark suited officials were waiting, and a short, grandmotherly woman in a pantsuit. She seemed to be the most important official. They waited for the Chinese to disembark.
Caryton's War Against Everything (1 of ?)
Earlier this morning, the Ordained Coast Guard of the Spiritual Republic of Caryton had captured a vessel from an unknown country bearing several thousand pounds of alcohol, pornography, marijuana, video games, homoerotic items and paraphernalia, tobacco, e-cigarettes, and several blocks of cocaine-- known as the Carytonic Leaflet due to it being sent in spite of the Gospel Church of Caryton's "Prohibition Act" and some or all of its banned items being sent in an attempt to create a black market and destroy the fusion of church and state in Caryton. Lately, the cartels had been unsuccessful in breaching the near-Orwellian grip of the Carytonic Customs & Border Protection. Lately, the punishment for distributing prohibited items had been raised to the death penalty rather than life imprisonment and excommunication. This passed the church legislature unanimously, 47-0. It was becoming increasingly risky and less profitable to target the Ecclesiastical Meritocracy, but that didn't mean those stubborn few didn't still try with all their might.
Reverend Malinda Beacon, the country's minister on foreign policy pointed the finger at MLG Gaming, citing its contributions to the drug trade as the main sponsor of the worldwide black market. The nation was accused of attempting to undermine the Prohibition Act and the Gospel Church of Caryton as a whole.
"Be their involvement direct or indirect, it still has the same dire consequences for our country. It is our sacred duty as Christians to keep our land safe. Effective immediately, the Spiritual Republic of Caryton will not stand by and tolerate anti-prohibition actions circulating in foreign trade. It is the Lord's will, and Cary's ministry. If the regional black market in Caryton's general area and its immediate does not stop immediately, we will take our sacred ordinance from the Substance Interception Agency and upgrade it to the military of our country. We will intervene in every place, and every drug trade until the prohibited items are far from Caryton's hands. We will not cease this notion of public decency until these drug lords are either stopped or so isolated their psuedo-economy collapses."
The ships contents were visibly burned on the edge of Carytonic waters before a missile cruiser opened a salvo of 4 tomahawk missiles and sunk it in a matter which can be conceived overkill. This was no emptying bags into the water. This was now full on militaristic authority.
Similarly, the densely populated Tuapa Atoll in the Carynesian Archipelago has seen a new naval base that will serve as a joint base of the Substance Interception Agency and the Navy. Coincidentally, it is the closest Carytonic territory to the gaming country. The country's 1 million active duty soldiers had also been recorded to re-new their oaths to include the protection of the motherland from prohibited substances. From alcohol to porn to hard drugs, the policy would all be the same.
Civil Rights activists in Caryton and representatives of the Free Gospel Church of Caryton (FGCC) have criticized the Gospel Church of Caryton (GCC) for further using this incident to limit sexual expression of LGBTQ+ people by including explicitly homoerotic literature, items, flags, etc. The Gospel Church of Caryton ignored the statements, mandating its policies on gender and sexuality will stay the same and what's prohibited is prohibited.
On the subject of Prohibition, the GCC had also listed energy drinks as a banned substance, and seeks to destroy all items currently circulating in the public access effective next week. Futhermore, the usage of Mana is now labelled "Witchcraft and Satanry to the 1st degree" and will merit execution. Mana is labelled as a banned substance under the Prohibition act and its usage is considered apostate.
In a agricultural society in which its citizens are 99% Christian, 82% GCC, and still wear suits and dresses to the ankles-- this response is predictable. But such a sudden outburst from a relatively quiet country is bound to make Caryton the site of public chatter for the weeks to come.
Artarum Launches First Hrimfaxi-class Submarine
VENTNOR — Prime Minister Anthony Bishop today presided over the launching of the Artarumen Empire's first Hrimfaxi-class ballistic missile submarine, the HMS Hrimfaxi, which had been laid down in mid-2008 in the Imperial Ventnor Shipyards, the state-owned shipbuilding giant that is responsible for building virtually all of the Imperial Navy since the 1970's.
Mr Bishop broke a bottle of champagne on the upper deck of the HMS Hrimfaxi, stating that the deployment of these new submarines would underpin the newest Artarumen doctrine in deterrence, with six Hrimfaxi-class vessels expected to be produced, all carrying multiple submarine-launched ballistic missiles with multiple nuclear warheads as a means of deterring aggression against the Artarumen Empire. The Government had earlier in this year announced large-scale plans to downscale the Imperial Navy, especially by trimming the size of the carrier fleet, by decommissioning eight of the Empire's fourteen Liudan-class supercarriers. The fourteen supercarriers are consistently criticised by civil society groups for costing the Artarumen economy immensely and preventing the alleviation of poverty and wealth inequality, as well as the corrupt enrichment of the military-industrial complex.
The Prime Minister also spoke warmly about selling two of the Liudan-class supercarriers to interested parties, as opposed to scrapping them, but noted that such a process would "need to undergo the necessary security checks and national security protocols in place by the Ministry of Defence", as well as "extensive research and authorisation from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office" to ensure that the ships to not end up in the hands of a power hostile to Artarum. When asked about the possibility of selling them to Umbraen and Zhongwangguo, Mr Bishop refused to comment, stating that "even if those countries are interested in the first place, the matter will first be looked at by a joint working group formed by our esteemed officials from the Ministry of Defence, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Ministry of Homeland Security, and other sub-ministerial branches of His Imperial Majesty's Government".
The continued construction of the next Hrimfaxi-class vessel, the HMS Scinfaxi, is well underway in Ventnor, with the flow of jobs and money into the city's economy welcomed by much of the urban blue-collar population.
The Comedydoore looked over the reports with a bemused look on their hidden face. The Comedydoore was seated in their office with two people, a man and a woman, standing in front of him.
"Y'know, it's getting hard to tell which drug shipment is actually ours anymore." The Comedydoore muttered.
"Given how much we stick our fingers in the international market it's more than likely at least some of the destroyed drugs were ours." Jack Thatcher, CEO of the People's Narcotic Organization, replied. The man sighed deeply before turning to The Comedydoore. "This is a direct attack on our economic base let alone our way of life. We cannot let this stand."
"The Caryton response was drastic but that doesn't mean we need to escalate things." The woman, Nemesis Vali, spoke. "We need to open communications with them and get this sorted out." The Chief Diplomat suggested. The Comedydoore was silent for a long while, the glowing red eyes of the mask staring straight ahead.
"This is clearly a religious issue." The Comedydoore eventually said. "This is not to be solved by businessmen or diplomats. The Imperium of Multiplayer hasn't really had a chance to interact with the other faiths of our world." The Comedydoore continued as they rose from their seat and turned towards the world map plastered over a wall. "I...have an idea."
Official Imperial Response to Spiritual Republic of Caryton
The Holy and Great Empire of MLG Gaming is heavily saddened by this news. While it is true that our great nation partakes in the international drug trade we have made it a point to respect the wishes of our neighbors and keep our hands out of the illegal black market.
Your holy republic's response to said event has also caused much strife within the Imperium of Multiplayer. As our faith is based on the ideals of Unity and Harmony we are even further saddened by the negative response we have received.
The Comedydoore, the official head of the Imperium of Multilayer and one of the diarchs of our great nation, hereby requests a meeting with Leading Reverend Dorothy Shirleyton to discuss matters of faith between protestant Christianity and Multiplayer in hopes of finding union and peace amongst the current discord.
May you find peace.
Urban Modernisation: The City of Tomorrow
The Imperial Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development has announced the existence of a plan that will see the creation of a new high-tech city. This community will act as a bellwether in the ministry’s bigger plans to modernise all of Middle Kingdom. The development will take place in five phases, with the first phase completed by the end of this quarter; and the second finalised by the end of the year.
The city will come equipped with the latest information technology trends, such as high-speed and efficient communications technologies, smart city features (computer-managed traffic, electricity grid, etc.). The government has partnered with private information technologies and systems management firms to help design, build and maintain the systems management technologies that the city will use. In light of the close relationship shared with Artarum, the government will seek out prominent Artarumen information technology consultancy and cybersecurity firms to assist in maintaining the technologies securely.
The overall urban modernisation project was born in 2006 after a series of prominent civil engineers were contracted to help develop a vision for modernising the Middle Kingdom’s urban centres. In 2010, the civil engineers presented their idea to the government. Work began in gathering and organising all necessary resources later in the year, with work starting in March 2013.
The first phase of this project will see a ten-kilometre radius shìzhōngxīn (市中心, English translation: city centre) constructed. Construction on this massive shìzhōngxīn began in early 2016.
Construction on the city, called 新城市 (Xīn Chéngshì, English translation: New City) itself began in 2014. As a crown jewel of the Imperial Ministry of Housing Urban-Rural Development’s urban modernisation project, Projects integration Sustainable Methods (PRiSM)—a project management technique focusing on minimising advert environmental impacts of the project—was picked to underscore the government’s commitment to modernise the Middle Kingdom with sustainability in mind.
All phases of the project are already partially completed. Other phases, for example, include the construction of a business district to accommodate businesses, with a focus on high-tech information technology and energy firms; several residential districts supported by neighbourhood parks and localised urban agriculture; extensive public works programmes to support Xīn Chéngshì; and much more.
The city is already connected by railroad. A large seaport and a multi-terminal airport are also under construction, with them both at least partially operational by the end of the year. Making the city accessible to the outside world should make Xīn Chéngshì more attractive to foreign businesses.
Already neighbourhoods on five artificial islands along the coast are expected to have astronomical prices once fully developed by early 2021. The middle artificial island is reserved by the Imperial Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which plans to give out exorbitant properties to heads-of-state, heads-of-government, and other high-ranked foreign officials. Members of the esteemed Artarumen cabinet supportive of the Middle Kingdom will each receive beachside houses as soon as the properties in question are fully developed.
An exclusive club is also being constructed on the middle island to act as a place where the elite can network out of public eye while enjoying the natural (and artificial) beauty of Xīn Chéngshì. A small airport and marina on the island will enable private travel while maintaining the inaccessibility of the island from prying eyes.
The Chinese delegation exchanged handshakes with the dark-suited officials. They were happy and proud to be serving the Huángdì. They anticipated negotiations gleefully and a sense of duty to their country, and to mankind.
The Spiritual Republic of Caryton Responds
The church legislature did not expect such a hasty reply. Ministers and reverends were shocked to varying degrees of pleasantness. Knowing little about the nation of MLG Gaming save for the fact that it strove for almost everything opposite of church ideals, consolation with the Leading Reverend, Dorothy Shirleyton and Cary the Golden Retriever revealed that the Church was to give the benefit of the doubt to the foreigners and be hospitable.
Therefore, in response to the soft-spoken letter, the Spiritual Republic of Caryton accepts this meeting offer and volunteers to host it in its capital city of Georgine at whatever time was convenient for the other nation. The Georgine Central Gospel airport would be their destination, and they were warned beforehand about what not to bring.
The residential area of inner Georgine, noted for its Queen Anne and Colonial Architecture in rich, dark, quaint colors. Famous for its peaceful and quiet atmosphere, it is no surprise how the moralistic and well-mannered population desire such a place if they want urban life.

A beautiful shopping and residential area of Outer Georgine.
One of the hidden treasures of the city-- the backroads in between row houses. Containing beautiful paths for walking, unheard of small businesses, and plenty of opportunities for photo shoots, the few foreigners that learn of one of these many spaces cherish them forever.
The beautiful Central Cathedral of the Gospel Church of Caryton. The denomination's headquarters and the largest church in the country, and definitely a world contestant. Cary's living space, and Dorothy Shirleyton's home-away-from-home. Both week-long services and important clergy business happens here. Government business also happens here, to a smaller degree.

Families or close groups of friends go to church in matching (but conservative and tasteful) outfits.
The typical conservative, nostalgically aged dress of Carytonic women.
Men are also expected to dress conservatively-- clean cut hairstyles, suits, ties, polos, and sweater shirts/vests are the retro norm.
Carytonic families always say grace, and always eat large meals.
Infants, babies, and toddlers are treated like gifts of God, and dressed like such whenever in public.
The elderly are treated deeply with respect, and are cared for to the best of the government's ability. The elderly in Caryton have the highest lifespans and average health in the world. The elderly dress in the same manner as everyone else.
"Chicken Boil Surprise" is the national dish of Caryton. The people of Caryton eat massive meals, and this one is fit for the family. A whole chicken is roasted in a spicy and tangy lemon-curry sauce with several vegetables and fruits-- namely citrus, mushrooms, carrots, garlic, onions, celery, tomatoes, or potatoes. The exact recipe varies from family to family-- the type of spice rub used on the chicken, the sauces' variable nature, the other ingredients set to roast with it, or even the condiments served with it (either hot sauce or lemon vinaigrette). The chicken is seasoned, set in a tall pot, covered with the sauce and other ingredients, and 'boiled' in the marinade, which gives it an intense and unbeatable flavor. The dish is either served as a stew in a bowl with the extra broth, or served over a bed of slightly mashed garlic potato chunks, and drizzled with a choice of condiment. Local tourists testify that while restaurants provide exquisite spinoffs of this dish, asking to partake in a home-cooked dinner is truly superior.
"Grandma's Stew" is another popular Carytonic dish. It got its name from many citizens in North Caryton admitting their elderly figures prepared it for them at least once. Typically un-findable in popular cities, tourists must go to rural areas for such a dish. The dish consists of soft elbow macaroni noodles cooked with ground beef, celery, tomatoes, onions, peppers, and even ham cubes or bacon bits as substitute for ground beef. These ingredients are cooked in vegetable juice concentrate instead of pasta sauce for better flavoring. Another massive dish that varies from house to house, every plate is unique. It comes in a soupy boul to a firm, layered casserole.
"Reverend's Cookies" gets its name from being Leading Reverend Dorothy Shirleyton's go-to tea time snack. Strawberry and/or Lemon thumbprint cookies are finely made and served either a la mode or with orange marmalade. Always a snack food, served with either tea, finger-sandwiches, or other regal munchies.
Rice Krispie Casserole is a breakfast and dessert dish featuring rice krispie treats sandwiched between various fruits, chocolate, and honey, and baked in the oven until warm. Often served a la mode or as a side dish for a much larger breakfast.
While alcohol and other trademark items are not allowed, this is one of the only times people of Caryton dress down and act casual. Game day for (American) Football is a huge pastime. Every major game, people dress in their favorite team's jerseys and hold either small-scale family or large-scale neighborhood parties complete with food, games, and decorations. (American) Football is Caryton's biggest sport and has had a huge impact on the entertainment culture of the nation.
Block parties have massive influence over Caryton. It is one of the many reasons why the conservative population is so close with one another. The well-dressed, white picket fenced people have to have at least one block party every month, depending on the neighborhood they live in. The further out from the cities you go, the more often these parties are held and the more fun they are. Food, games, bounce castles, and many more activities are held. From occasions like game day or the various holidays to the very welcoming of a new neighbor, community is everything in Caryton.
For a nation as young as Caryton is, it's shocking how massive the Christmas spirit is. Every town or city, regardless of size, has a Christmas tree in its center. Merry families decorate the outside of their houses to a borderline absurd extent. People eat fruitcake and ginger cookies. Christmas mass is the most important service in the year. The Gospel Church of Caryton holds massive Christmas parties for the whole family, and the charity services of Caryton reports that they are most successful around this time of year.
Military and Civilian parades are enjoyed by the deeply patriotic people of Caryton.
The typical class of a Carytonic Elementary School
Education in Caryton is free, due to the nation's mixed economy. Classes and educators alike hold conservative values and teach things like abstinence, creationism, and moral values from elementary to even college.
Preachers, like government officials, teachers, doctors, soldiers, lawyers, and other necessary officials-- make an impressive salary.
Healthcare in Caryton is free, and there's enough investment in the Health industry's budget that waiting times are not chaotic and everyone can get treatment.
Even if religiously flavored, the arts are cherished in Caryton's high school and college level of education. From painting to vocals to computer animation, students can pursue their talents. For instance, in this image, Caryton has some of the best high school show choirs in the world.
To the international community's dismay, since church and state are not separate in Caryton, the job of being a judge entirely goes to high ranking ministers.
Armed Forces service is mandatory for men at 18, optional at 16- for a length of 3 years. Service for women is optional at 18, for a length of 1.5 years. Both genders can request to extend their service time or make it permanent.
The Golden Retriever is the national animal of Caryton and is treated with the respect of a national symbol. Animal Rights for all creatures are intensely protected, and abuse of an animal is on the same degree as assault, and the same goes for a murder of an animal.
The right to bear arms and form militias is protected by law. On top of that, well-regulated game hunting is popular among rural Carytonic.
The short woman introduced herself as Foreign Minister Tula Hai. While not stated, it was fairly obvious she was tired of being cooped up in an office. She directed the Chinese delegates to the motorcade. "I feel we have much to talk about." she stated rather plainly. They were on their way in fairly short order, passing through the capital - which was filled with strange buildings of all different shapes and sizes. Their destination - The Foreign Ministry - was an interesting building itself, it looked like a turtle made up of five glass domes with metal framework. All the hallways and passageways seemed to be the only ones immediately under the glass. The Minister lead them inside, and then to a conference room with no windows. "Now, we've heard that your nation is quite the up and coming economic machine. Veradax deals with all sorts of despots and tyrants, so it is quite refreshing doing business with other free market economies, though we'll need to know what Zhongwangguo seeks to walk away from this meeting with."
Iron and Industry 2
The factories of Troois Sul have worked none stop to create new armaments for trade and security ever since the order was given by the saints.
One of the main benefactors of the industrial increase was the Navy, having gained some new dreadnoughts and smaller ships. The head of the Church of Seerism, Father Lanthan, conducts a meeting with the head of the navy.
The Admiral entered the room to find Lanthan hunched over a map.
"Ah, yes. There you are. Please, come and look."
Lanthan gestured to the admiral, beckoning him closer. Of course, he obliged.
"I want our entire navy to follow this route..."
As the Admiral approached, Lanthan pointed to the map, running his finger along an imagined route starting from the east of Troois Sul, circling around the north of Errada and returning to a major port in the West of the nation.
"For what purpose?" The Admiral questioned, raising his eyebrow in confusion.
"A training exercise of course." Lanthan smirked.
The Admiral had knew Lanthan from the early days. He knew his politics, his Machiavellian methods and strategic use of his subordinates as though they were pawns in a giant game of chess.
He looked up from the map, locking eyes with the Head of the Church.
"Answer me honestly, what is the reason behind the mobilization of our entire fleet?"
"I said, it is a training exercise." Replied Lanthan returning the Admiral's gaze.
"You can't fool me, old friend, this is a blatant show of force, intimidation. The world will notice."
"I can assure you, you will mobilise the fleet for training. I cannot help it if the world misinterprets our harmless activities as something sinister. Even if it was a show of force, it is the command of the Saints, not me."
The Admiral recoiled, breaking eye contact with Lanthan, clearly feeling as though his opposition will have been noted by the All Seeing.
"If the Saints command, I shall follow." he said with a hint of fear in his now quietened voice.
"Yes. You will embark on this training exercise, in the next week." Lanthan ordered.
The Comedydoore happily accepts these terms and wishes to inform the Republic that the entourage shall consist of The Comedydoore, two Guildmasters of the faith, and a personal protection squad of two Imperial Holy Marines. The Imperium wishes to remind the Republic that the Holy Marines are simply there for the protection of The Comedydoore and the Guildmasters. While we trust your serene Republic we are not without threats on the global stage. We hope you understand.
As for designating the time for this meeting we are prepared to meet with you as soon as possible.
