Supreme Leader Jimmy Kudo's annual new years speech 2018

Postby Cartoonia » Mon Dec 31, 2018 12:44 pm

Title: Supreme Leader Jimmy Kudo's annual new years speech
Author: Supreme Leader Jimmy Kudo
Date: December 31, 2018
Type: Speech
Summary: Every year, The Supreme Leader gives a speech to Cartoon House which essentially is a year in review.




Members of the Cartoon House, Chancellor, Attorney General, people of Cartoonia, my friends.

We have come to the point in time where we part ways from this year, and look forward to the next year to come. I will now give my annual New Year’s speech to the people.

First off, I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas or whatever holiday you celebrate. I wish that everyone was merry and bright.

Now on to the review. In our existence, we haven’t had a year quite like this one. We weren’t really busy during the first half of the year. Things were uneventful in these parts of the world. It wasn’t until the summer, we got busy. We established more embassies here and abroad, sending our first batch of new ambassadors to nations we just established relations with. We have furthered ourselves in foreign affairs and expanded our reach around the world. I have signed multiple WA proposals and signed treaties that have furthered us on to the world stage. We passed laws that protected the interests of the people at home and across our empire. We have seen our economy boom through trade and tourism like no one has ever seen before. Our people enjoyed traveling to various different nations this year. Some of our friends traveled to the United Island States of AHSCA for the Festival of the Holy Light. I traveled to the Waldenian Empire back in time for a dinner party. And our own Cartoon Marine Band traveled on tour in various nations. This is truly a year for the many Cartoon citizens around the world.

Even in light, we had our dark moments. Our Cartoon Territory of Equestria was in full revolt, and to appease the international community, we had to pull Equestria out of our empire. We have seen the injustice of Munkchester gathering slaves and selling them. We have seen friends from around the world leave this world, Stan Lee, George Bush, John McCain, Stephen Hillenburg, Kenny McCormick, and other friends as they leave to move on to the land above. We lost friends, but we endured, going about with a smile and the spirit that we always have even in hard times.

We now look on towards 2019 with new goals and events. Our Chancellor-Attorney General elections are coming about soon and as we bid farewell to Erza Scarlet & Lisa Simpson in 2020, we will welcome the new candidates whoever they might be. This is truly a new era of progress. Our goal is to maintain our position as an imperial world power not just in the Greater Dienstad region, but the entire modern world. Our goal is to reach out to nations in trouble and help in conflicts that arise for whatever reason, revolt, war, famine, even on the seas where storms can cause trouble to ships and trade, we will help keep our citizens and the world safe.

On this note friends, we bid the past adieu, and we look onwards to the future, where the cartoon government, ruled by one, ruled by tow, ruled by all, shall never again be seen as puny. As long as we are strong, we shall never perish from the earth.

Thank my friends, may you have a wonderful new year, God bless you, and remember, Cartoons Above All!

Alvarez City Riots of 1983

Postby Cartoonia » Wed Jan 02, 2019 11:08 pm

Title: Alvarez City Riots of 1983
Author: Lisa Simpson
Date: June 15, 2001
Type: Historical Account
Summary: The Alvarez City riots, how it happened, why it happened, and what happened after.


Alvarez City Riots of 1983

One of Cartoonia’s major riots took place in the summer of 1983. The city of Alvarez was a small city on the tip of the Ishgar province. Founded in 1933 as a settlement for the poor, but gained fame in 1969 under leadership of Mayor Spriggan (who was actually named Zeref Dragneel, brother of Natsu, but changed his name due to political reasons) where the city “prospered”. The rich earned 3x the amount the other rich made in the entire nation, and the local city militia officers made 5x the amount regular Cartoon army officers made. This was because of economic tricks Mayor Spriggan implemented in his time in office. He taxed the poor so hard that slums formed during a time the government issued slum clearance in all major cities, he appointed twelve personal guards to clear the streets of civil unrest and assassinate those who oppose his rule named the Spriggan 12, and he built a personal army and naval fleet. So where was the Cartoon government? The answer here is that Mayor Spriggan refused the government to control his city. He took the city off of the Cartoon roster of city maintenance, which means that Alvarez won’t receive government aid nor essentials, but they are still on the map, like the Smurf Village Commune. Unlike the Commune, Alvarez was socially unequal, corrupt, and fascist.

On April of 1983, a house representative, Brian Griffin of Quahog, was on vacation in this city. He was a pro-liberal politician apart of the Anime-Cartoon Liberty Party. He notices the poverty in the city and goes up to the town hall where he sees the corruption going on. Noticing this, and how long Mayor Spriggan ruled, he decides to talk to locals about going back to the federal government rule, or what he calls Cartoon Federalism. One of the Spriggan 12 notices this and assassinates him in his bedroom on April 23. This led to a full on investigation by the Cartoon Bureau of Investigation. They unravel the behind the scenes of Mayor Spriggan and place him under federal arrest. The city was now leader less, so the rich took over, which created more tension.

On June 12, he courts, thanks to bribes from the Spriggan 12, found the mayor, not guilty. Which angered the citizens of Alvarez which lead from one thing to another, leading to a full-scale riot. At first, it was simple looting of stores, the poor citizens looted local bakeries & food markets, whose prices were controlled by Mayor Spriggan & the city elite, but it then turned to murder, pillaging, & other more harmful crimes. Police authorities tried to take control of the situation, but failed and they themselves got looted. Once the police failed, Spriggan’s personal army and guards went in to take the rioters out, but due to lack of experience and leadership, the army was defeated by the rebels. The riots spreaded out more to the neighboring cities of Ishgar, in the town of Akane Beach, rioters looted local businesses. By that time, local city militia and Cartoon National Guard regiments came in to squash rebellion in the towns and were advancing towards Alverez, but were in need of reinforcements, for they have outdated weapons, the rioters had more advanced weapons from looting the personal army armory.

Army Gran-General at the time, General Abraham Simpson, issued the 2nd Army, 8th Armored Car Division, and the 6th Histeria Rifle Regiment Division into a joint task force to force down the riot and return peace and order from what once was a rouge city. General Justin Cavallero was placed in charge of the force and on July 21, 1983, the force arrived in Alvarez and shot down the riot faster than it started. One the city was in control, The government placed General Cavallero as Mayor-Tempore of Alvarez and did what he can to clean up unrest. He tasked the force on controlling city borders and who can enter or exit. He ordered a city-wide curfew, and a redo of the trial of Mayor Spriggan. He also ordered the execution of the remaining Spriggan 12 members. Only 3 were executed, the 2 fled in secrecy, never to be heard of again, yet still wanted, and 1 was pardoned

Justin also brought back the federal government into the city’s jurisdiction. They did some aid, redistribution of wealth, and slum clearance. There was heavy city border patrol by the 6th Histeria Rifle Regiment Division in order to keep order in between entries and exits. There was once incident there when a guy tried to get through the checkpoint to smuggle in girls to become his furniture. The patrol captured him, freed the girls, and executed the guy on the spot. After that incident, the whole city came back to normal by January of 1984, this time, a proper election was held that elected, Ajeel Ramal, the Spriggan 12 member that was pardoned, as mayor of Alvarez city. He agrees to bring the city back in the jurisdiction of the Cartoon Federal government. The city is now back to normal, but aftershocks are still felt however even, after the riots, distrust between rich and poor continues in the city and today, it is considered the worst case of civil unrest in Cartoonia ever since the Liore Riots of 1963. Legislation has passed to protect city poor and to keep corruption in city governments from ever happening.

John Philip Sousa in Cartoonia

Postby Cartoonia » Tue Mar 12, 2019 8:06 am

Title: John Philip Sousa in Cartoonia
Date: March 12, 2019
Author: Colonel Arthur Kirkland of the “Supreme Leader’s Own”
Type: Historical Account
Summary: An account of Sousa’s time in Cartoonia and the effects of his legacy



John Philip Sousa in Cartoonia

John Philip Sousa was an American composer in the late 19th and early 20th Century. He was nicknamed “The March King” because he wrote many military marches including “Washington Post”, “Semper Fidelis”, and “The Stars and Stripes Forever” named the official march of The United States in 1987. He was the leader of the United States Marine Band from 1880 to 1892 serving five presidents. In the following years, he would form his own band, taking in various high-level musicians and transcribing various orchestra pieces and performing world wide. He was even the man behind the modern Sousaphone, a tuba sounding instrument used by various military bands.

In 1900, he had planned to tour with his band in the newly made American provinces of Cartoonia, but because of what happened in The Great Magnolian Christmas Fire of 1899, the governor canceled Sousa’s tour of Cartoonia for his safety. Sousa, however, took that as bluff and secretly traveled there without anyone knowing. His surprise performance from the docks of Port Gallagher to Hotel Carmel was a big shock for many, but was still a joy all the same. The governor decided to let Sousa conduct the tour. His band traveled all across the colonies, even stopping by the ruins of Magnolia, where he conducted a requiem. He even conducted a joint concert with his band and the Marine Band of the 8th Province Division. His band has seen so much success in the provinces by the end of his tour on July 21. Raking in over $50,000 in concert revenue, Sousa would come back to the islands in 1905 for another tour around Cartoonia, even going to the Great Magic Exhibition of Reborn Magnolia. He was a popular figure amongst the colonists in Cartoonia and his music can be heard everywhere. Governor Benson Dunwoody, who have previously cancelled then decided to bring his tour back, would give him the American Colonial Medal of Glory on August 4 after the 1905 tour. He would go on to continue tours in Europe and America, going on until his death on March 6, 1932.

The march genre of music has remained a popular genre in Cartoonia ever since, with some local regiments adopting his marches and the other various marches as official march pasts. The Histeria Rifle Regiment adopted Sousa’s “Rifle Regiment”, The KND Corps adopted Sousa’s “Boy Scouts of America”, The Cartoon Navy adopted Sousa’s “Hands Across The Sea” The Cartoon Air Force adopted Alford’s “Eagle Squadron”, The Cartoon Army adopted Bagley’s “Front Section”, and importantly, Cartoonia adopted Duble’s “Bravura” as the official march of Cartoonia. Sousa’s influence had such a large effect, that a statue of him was erected in Gallagher Square in 1957. The military band has been a staple in all of Cartoonia’s towns and villages. Cartoonia’s culture policy is based off of the preservation of the military band. Musicians make up 35% of the workforce, being paid $25,000 a year. His legacy also continues with the formation of “The Supreme Leader’s Own” Cartoon Marine Band from the Marine Band of the 8th Province Division in 1955, playing music for The Supreme Leader and Cartoonia ever since.
