M. U. R. International [Secret IC/Closed]

Postby Sophisticism » Sun Jun 06, 2010 4:46 am

You sit in your office in the parliament building when one of your secretaries hands you an envelope. It has the words "M. U. R. International" on one side, and "Classification: Secret" on the other.
You are very busy working on a new law, but after leaving it on your desk for a few moments you decide to open it.

Welcome to M. U. R. International. Please take your time to read some info about our company:
Religion equals power, and a religion fitting your nation's history and culture means even more power.
That's exactly what we at Make Up a Religion International believe in. We invent custom religions fitting our customers' requirements, write religious and theological books to prove the new religion is the 'right' one, pay famous and influencing people to say they believe in the new religion and even convince Priests, Imams, Rabbis and other religious figures to switch their religion and spread it.
M.U.R. International is the only company in the international market offering this unique service nowadays. Our experience and professionalism in the religion-business insure that within 20-30 years{*} of the invention of the new religion, most of your nation's citizens will believe in it, worshipping its special God (or Gods).
{*}That's not a mistake. It takes at least 20 years to get a religion popular in a region it wasn't known in before. It's a long process, but this is exactly our specialization. Eventually, the religion conversion will succeed.

Sample Religion
The Christian minority in Bigtopia (fake name, we maintain 100% secrecy on all our customers), a Buddhist country, has recently increased to an all time high, threatening the governing Socialist Buddhist Party.
Prime minister R. T. Antuan requested our help in creating a new religion based on Buddhism, but with several Christian rituals, to decrease the amount of citizens objecting to change their religion.
We have hired around a hundred Theologians, Buddhist Monks, Christian Priests and Bigtopian Philosophers to create a new religion fitting the Bigtopian Government's needs. The team has worked for over two years, creating the Church of Buddha Bigtopius.
Buddha Bigtopius (also known as BB) is the name of a made up character we have invented. His bibliography, Bigtopius, a book we have written, tells he was born to a poor family in Central Bigtopia. Soon after celebrating his 5th birthday, his parents sent him to a Christian Monastery in his home town, where he was immediately considered a genius.
When he was 7 he was sent to the famous George Monastery in the Bigtopian Capital, where he continued his theological studies. The small child kept growing and became a man. Soon after celebrating his 16th birthday he has encountered his first epiphany. He left the monastery and moved to the small port town of Maxtopius, where he developed the new religion.
Nowadays, 85% of the Bigtopian population is BBian. Over 10,000 churches were built, and the Buddha Bigtopius Religious Conservative Party has over 70% of the seats in parliament. The new religion, which was the Bigtopian government's last opportunity to stay in power, is a great success.

To register to our services, please fill the following form:{**}
Please note: the new religion will be made according to your answers in this form. Please fill it carefully - once a religion is created there is no way back.

Welcome to M. U. R. International Health Department
Our department specializes in placebo medicine - as long as you convince your believers our products work, they would psychologically get healthier.
All of our products, which are made of natural ingredients (mainly water, grains and cellulose), have no side effect at all.
Our products are fitted with custom packagings - we will create bottles, boxes and stamps fitting the national religion.

We fit products to any religion, not necessarily Made-Up Religions. Our researches in Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist and Hindi countries have showed high success rates.

Products:
Holy Water:
Image

Made of 100% water (Psst... Don't tell anyone), this product is believed, in many religions, to make medical miracles.
Comes in a beautiful, luxurious, turquoise coloured glass (modifiable) bottle.

What is it good for? Literally, anything. Whether a citizen suffers from a normal cold or a repeating migraine, this product will cure him as long as he believes it will.

Available at 100ml ($0.30), 437ml ($1) and 780ml ($1.20) bottles.
Once purchased, our Holy Water may be sold at the local church/temple for hundreds of dollars per litre; This is an excellent opportunity to enrich the local religious organization.

The Lord's Tea:
An excellent herbal tea made of spearmint, lemon grass, salvia and our secret holy ingredient.
Tea is a major part in different cultures, mainly in Asian and European countries. A tea sold by the local religious organization in countries where tea is popular is ought to have great success.
Our tea, as most teas, is excellent against colds, contains antioxidants and strengthens the immune system. Believers, who get this tea for a relatively high price, enjoy its special all curing placebo-effect.

We sell our tea in two different forms - teabags and a dry herbal mixture.
The first is available in packs of 10, 20, 50 and 100 teabags, costing $5, $7.5, $14 and $20.
As all of our products, it comes in a luxurious package - a fine wooden box, with the national religion's symbol chiselled on it.

The other form, which some prefer since it is more 'natural', is available at a variety of sizes: 100g ($8), 200g ($14), 350g ($17) and 500g ($22).
Once again, our artists have designed a beautiful bamboo basket (hand-made) suiting this valuable product.

Marketing suggestion: the combination of holy water and tea is very logical. Selling both in a holy combo-pack may yield great profits.

To: The Federation of High Trade of Universial Trade Government
From: M. U. R. International

Your request has been received in the Communication Centre in our headquarters in Eee-Que, Sophisticism.
We have gathered 30 employees for a meeting, here are our conclusions:
  • The new religion will be based on cosmology, star-worshipping etc.
  • There will be reference to how Hulorians are terrible people.
  • 2 daily prayers at home or work are required, a prayer in a Galaxy Hall (temple) required once a week.
  • The religion will explain how the combination of people and different species of aliens in the federation is important to cosmic stability.
  • Huge religious banners will be placed in major cities to attract the crowds.
We estimate that it will take the federation's citizens 35-40 years to adopt the religion. Missionaries will be an essential part of the new religion - we will send several thousands to the nation to convert the citizens' religion.

We will charge a total of $525,000,000 for the whole process. This price includes employee wages (for missionaries and "Star Priests"), advertisements, book writing and the construction of a big religious centre in the High Tradian capital. This price covers all expenses for the next 40 years - an average of $13,125,000 per year.

Once receiving your confirmation on the plan, we will start writing the religious books. A final version will be sent to you when we are done.

Sincerely,
the M. U. R. International Administration.

"Look into the stars, above, look and worship. For your entire life they have been there, and for your entire life they will. Twenty five, the important of them, and gazillions of the others... Thou shall worship the one, and thou shall work for the galaxy...".
That's how "The Emperor's Galaxy" starts. It's the first of 19 holy scrolls, to be worshipped by all citizens.
"...Honour and respect, to all with no exception. All were created by one, and all go to one...", the writings command.

The holy books, written on scrolls and treated to look old, are ready to be transferred to the Federation, and an architectural plan for the "Holy Spaceship" has been made.
Advertisement banners were designed, ready to be hanged on tall buildings.
Missionaries were trained, prepared to years of hard work.

Everything is ready. The new religion is real.

Thank you. Thank you for your cooperation. Thanks for your support.
Thank you for choosing M. U. R. International.

To: Onyenuan Government
From: M. U. R. International

We have received your request, and are pleased to say we accept it.
Due to the high amount of religious Christians in the nation, we would recommend a new religion based on Christianity.

John Onyenus Christi was born in 1973 to an astronomer father and engineer mother. Both of his parents were at work most day, and little John started studying Christianity after school.
When he was 15, he published his first book, To be or not to be. The book reduced the importance of church, and was banned by it, but that didn't stop citizens from reading it.
John was invited to many TV shows, and started spreading his new religion - a religion with most Christian rituals but with slight changes and additions - he stated the royal family's importance is second only to God himself. He also said how peace is important and war is terrible.
John had a sudden death at the age of 25, but his followers kept spreading his message of Peace and Truth.

Due to the high amount of religious citizens in the nation we will concentrate our efforts in missionaries, who will go from town to town and personally try to convince as many citizens as possible to switch their religion.
With that being said, we expect a rather fast spreading of the religion once it is based in the nation.

We will charge a total of $7,650,000,000 for the whole process.

To: Lewcizian Government
From: M. U. R. International

We are pleased to say your request is accepted.
Since the country is very religious, we would recommend the Transformation method rather than the Conversion method.
All priests and druids in the state will be given a book explaining recent changes to the religion, together with a few hundred dollars.
A few days after receiving the book, they will get a phone call from an anonymous number. They will be asked to hold a meeting with 'Grandozine the Elf', a mysterious mythical character.

When the priest arrives to the meeting place, he'll meet a group of Satanically dressed people. They'll claim they were sent by Satan himself, and they were there to take take him to Hell for not obeying the new laws.
The priest, who should be extremely nervous by now, will start begging for his life.
The group will forgive him, but will force him not to tell anyone about the weird occurrences that day.

Soon, priests will spread the new message around the country, and the citizens' religion will be converted without them even noticing it.

Our Transformation method is much shorter and cheaper than our usual Conversion method.
We will charge a total of $79,000,000 for the whole process, which should take no more than 3 years.


Sincerely,
M. U. R. International Administration.

OOC: Lithatrius and Bisgea, you have been queued.

Transformation Process

Postby Lewciz » Wed Jun 09, 2010 6:51 am

Your proposal is put on hold until it is explained how will a Druid or Preist be dealt with if they violate their oath of silence(and some most certainly will) and leak information on what has occured in some way? Will this leak of information create a rift within the religion itself and cause a split in the ranks of the priesthood possibly leading to a new and competing religion? Or worse, could it even lead to a possible loss of Faith/Trust among the people causing them to become non-believers with a serious drop-off in religous fervor and attendance. These possible consequences seem to important to ignore. Is there another way this trans -formation can be preformed?

Will this leak of information create a rift within the religion itself and cause a split in the ranks of the priesthood possibly leading to a new and competing religion? Or worse, could it even lead to a possible loss of Faith/Trust among the people causing them to become non-believers with a serious drop-off in religous fervor and attendance. These possible consequences seem to important to ignore. Is there another way this trans -formation can be preformed?


To: Lewciz Government
From: M. U. R. International Administration

M. U. R. employees several hundreds of Secret Private-Police officers.
With your approval, some could move to the state and deal with these rebellious Druids and Priests.
Dealing with means killing in special ways, such as being hanged from a tree top at a full-moon night, leaving a "Satanic Letter" behind.
Citizens seeing what happens to their Priests will immediately have questions and seek answers.
This is when when of our priests will come to a town and tell how bad and unholy the former Druid was.
Our priest will settle in the city and start transforming the citizens' religion.

If that is not acceptable, we may offer the usual conversion plan.

Thank you for your cooperation,
M. U. R. International Administration.

To: Lithatrius Government
From: M. U. R. International

Sirs,
Looking at your answers, we figured the religion that will suit the nation the most would be 'Buddha-Lite', based on the Indian culture.
The holy books will explain the high financial differences between citizens as the Gods' decision (Buddhism is a polytheistic religion), and will say that in heaven all believers get the same treatment (to reduce anger among lower-caste members); Non-believers would obviously be sent to hell.

We would recommend mandatory religious after-school classes for all children between the ages 4 and 16, teaching to praise all Gods and thank the holy leader for his generosity.

We believe that these after-school classes will ensure complete, blind, obedience from all youngsters - the future generation.

We will charge a total of $640,000,000 for the process.

Sincerely,
M. U. R. International Administration.

Also, we are FT so you might want to take that into note. Lastly, base it somewhat on egypt mythos and work our national animals, grendels in.

"At first Old Grendel made Earth, Stars, and Grendels, Shee and Human.
And them were divided to classes, to serve the great.
The rich, the poor, God bless them all; To do their job, to be so pleasant, each on his own designation... All together."

That's a summary of most important stuff in the Banshean Religion.
This religion takes reincarnation as an important part of life, and therefore explains poverty/richness as a punishment/blessing for what the previous generation have done, but explains that this could be changed in the next generation by prayer.
This will give the lively, poor, citizens a good reason to pray a lot (five times a day for ten minutes) while the lazy, rich, citizens won't pray at all - they won't find it necessary.

Transformation Process

Postby Lewciz » Fri Jun 11, 2010 5:36 am

After much consideration it has been decided that the negitive effects of the transformation process far outweigh its benifits for the reasons previously stated. Therefore we would like to opt for conversion rather than a transformation process. 79,000,000 will be wired to your account as a downpayment for your efforts. Thanks
