Oooooh joyyyyyyyyyy

Will a bestselling author of travelogues (who happens to be the younger brother of one of this nation's leaders -- not a prince, mind; strictly speaking, only the kami themselves are thus invested), his newly-wedded wife (assistant, amanuensis, and companion, to be precise), and their infant son be allowed to loiter for a bit? If so, will post later.

I'm assuming you'll want to interview some people of different classes, which can be arranged.

Approved. Barely. He will need a translator to accompany him, and to keep an eye on him. He sounds almost like a spy.

Approved. I can tell you straight off, there is no Islamic community in Gilead, except in the Colonies. As for our society, that is something we like to show off, so this will be easy.

Great then!

Ma Zhaozhong will probably be researching on Gilead culture and maybe educating some people about Yulongi Islam and how the Xiazhai differ from mainstream Muslims.

Research? Fine. " educating some people about Yulongi Islam and how the Xiazhai differ from mainstream Muslims"? No. That is not permitted, under Anti-Gileadean Propaganda.

Soon as any of you are ready, jump on in the IC thread, linked in the OP. You'll arrive at Cambridge airport, and have to go through customs (what is and isn't allowed in in the laws link above), and to the Gilead Travel Agency to hire a translator or tour guide. And then I out into Gilead, and from thence the fun shall arise.

A few things about the app: I deliberately chose the first week of June, just so I can see how the RP progresses (and because I tend to be quite detailed with my posts). Also, IC-wise (but obviously not public knowledge), the two bodyguards are also agents for the Yakumo Census Bureau (though in public the bureau will say they've resigned), which among its various duties is also the queendom's spy agency, reporting directly to the Yakumokami. They'll be there merely to observe as discreetly and unobtrusively as possible and report all they've seen to the kami once they get back to Dahon (as a World Assembly member the motive is obvious), but in the meantime they're meant to make sure their charges are safe from harm. (TMI? Too soon?)

Also a question for the OP: how much about Gilead is public knowledge? I haven't read the book or watched the series, only checked from places like Wikipedia and TVTropes, so I'm not sure which about Gilead is public knowledge and which not. Or am I to assume everything in the factbooks (and the series it's based from) is known to foreigners?

(Perhaps -- given Gilead ain't shy at tourism -- a sample tourist brochure from you might help matters?)

Anyway, here's the app.

Name: Kojima Makata (travel writer); Jade Sengall (assistant, amanuensis, wife); Kojima Hayata (son); Bizen Emon and Habishiri Yusuke (bodyguards and assistants)
Sex: All but Mrs Sengall are male.
Age: 45; 35; 7 months; 33 and 37, respectively
Photo: Will be added later.
Language: Between the 4 adults, they speak 9 languages fluently, including English; Mr Kojima also has a passing knowledge of Latin.
Country of Origin: The Queendom of Dahon (for the males and Mrs Sengall); India (as Mrs Sengall is a dual citizen)
Reason for visit: Research for a travelogue on Gilead.
Arrival: They shall come by private yacht on the first week of June.
Length of stay: Thirty days, maximum. This does not preclude them deciding to leave much earlier.
Anything else we should know: All have worked for the kami in one capacity or another. Mr Bizen and Mr Habishiri, in fact, were former soldiers, and Ms Sengall a soldier of fortune, before returning to civilian life (they as low-level officials for the Yakumo Census Bureau; she as a teacher of self-defense techniques to army recruits, before becoming Mr Kojima's constant companion and then wife).

Several things.
1. You can only arrive via aircraft. The seaport is highly classified. You'll be arriving either on Gileadean Airlines, Satesian Airlines, or Abvonchatkaderivokistani Airlines, the only ones allowed to land at Cambridge International.
2. Blatant spies? You know this won't end well.
3. Any world building in the Hulu series is canon. Individual story elements are not. There hasn't just been a suicide bomber, for example. Obviously, everything in factbooks is public knowledge.
Hope this makes sense!
