@Sasae Mamea I too am finding these statements from some anon dude calling himself "the Great Sire" very interesting. Along with the sudden crop of self-professed independence activists that refuse to actually openly stand for their beliefs. It all sounds very like what our Orussians were doing in our neighbourhood back in 2014.

@Hermina von Mollinary I know, right? It's also more interesting, how so-called activists from the so-called 'Independent Ferinan-Archipelago' pop up and spread stuff that are obvious lies - obvious enough, that a five-year-old can identify them as lies. I'm still sure, that they aren't even from the Ferinan-Archipelago, for if they were, they would know about certain details (take the military presence). Perhaps, they don't even speak any Shikonjimanese, or any other language spoken in here. Only the Four Souls know where on earth they're sitting.

@Loiselle Contre-Revolution Ohayou gozaimasu! It looks, as if there might be a few points to clarify ... so,
1) What you, among not exactly few others, refer to as 'Imperialism' and 'land stealing', is nothing else but a Reunification of territories that should never have been split off in the first place. Besides, it was an entirely voluntary merger of states agreeing to (re)unify, thus in full compliance with existing international law and treaties. It is beyond me how this can possibly be 'land stealing'. Following this logic, the Shikonjimanese Mainland would have to devolve into five fully sovereign states again, for the voluntary agreement to end the Clan Wars and unify back in 1679 would be 'land stealing', too. (Which would now make me wait for Lillorainen to devolve into a bunch of city-states again.)
2) With the difference being, that 'Anglo' and 'Hispanic' are, at least according to the understanding widely accepted in Shikonjima (and various other nations), are rather broader terms for ethnicities/nationalities sharing certain cultural traits, rather than ethnicities in a narrow sense of the term. Similarly, many count Shikonjimanese/Yonrei as 'Japonic', ethnically spoken, albeit there is a myriad of differences in language, genetics, religion, and cultural heritage. Creating one unified 'Japonic' state would indeed by undesirable, whereas creating one Shikonjimanese/Yonrei state is more than logical.
3) Except the 'regime' is neither (extraordinary) distant, nor 'foreign', the reasons for which being stated above.
4) and 5)Nobody ever said, that the Ferinan-Islanders were 'unable' to govern themselves, and to an extent, they will continue to do so while being parts of Shikonjima under international law, as mostly autonomous parts of the Shikonjimanese Realm, at a greater level than any part of the Mainland. As for 'being better off' as a reason for the Reunification - it was not the only reason for it; further points are already dealt with in 1), 2), and 3). As for 'racism' - even if we did believe in the concept of 'race' in the first place (which we don't, as we aren't exactly fans of 16th century Western 'anthropology'), how would it be 'racist' to welcome people back into Shikonjima who are, by a larger majority than the Mainland even, Shikonjimanese themselves?

Well, they finally got me, my two puppies... and yes, Elin, Branwen, you can stop looking over my shoulders, I am really doing this. Even after your warnings. So, here I am, Llwyd Blaidd, of Tralee Descent, a Father, a Herbalist, a Teacher, a Swordmaster (again).
The woman on the right in my profile pic is my wife, Meave. That image is a few years old, when I participated in a swordfighting tournament in Horai.

So, apparently one does a lot of political commenting around these parts and the current topic of being offended is the Reunification/Annexation of the Ferinan-Archipelago into Shikonjima. I must admit, that I have never been there (unlike Immy, best regards). Yet, I personally see the peaceful protest of supporters of this reunification as proof of there not only being supporters but also a, until now, silent majority. Of course, one could now argue, that they all have been bought, are secret agents, conscripts dressed up as civilians or something of that kind, but until there is definitive proof of such a thing, I am going to believe, that a few hooligans shooting at the police do not represent the will of the people living there.
I have, in my time, seen enough occupations and less peaceful annexations, been part of enough such operations myself, to tell you, that if there really is a large movement of people, who wish for the independence of the Archipelago, there would be a lot more violence and a lot more Mainland-Shikonmanjese Infantry around.

Press Statement of the Lord-Commander of the Navy:
In the face of the current crisis surrounding the Ferinan-Archipelago and its Reunification with the Principality of Shikonjima, the Lord-Commander denies any claims, that the dispatching of the Carrier Group 6 to Shajarat Alnakhil has anything to do with securing Kyrenain Interests. He does, however, confirm, that the hospital vessel RKN Niematan was dispatched to assist the battlegroup of IAS Ebon Atoll after the flight accident aboard.
The Lord-Commander also requests all involved parties to judge the situation by the truths involved and reaffirms, that the Sultanate, and with it its Navy, stands behind the Reunification and will not withdraw its recognition, neither of these proceedings nor of the Treaty on the Reincorporation of the Seven Duchies of the Ferinan-Archipelago into the Shikonjimanese Realm.

Let's be honest: the Shikonjima-Ferinan Archipelago Reunification Process is a hot-button topic. You have people looking at this with such great interest that if the speculations are correct, we're looking at external agents attempting to subvert the process for various gains. This raises the question: what do those foreign parties stand to gain from the subversion of what should by all rights be perfectly acceptable under established international law, treaty, and custom?

I am so happy with everything my people have built. If things ended tomorrow in an asteroid strike, we could look back at what we’ve accomplished and smile in the afterlife. Top ranked sports teams in international competition. Championships, even back to back. Developing a brand into one of the top car companies and adding titles in several race leagues. Superstar drivers like Jessica Franssen. Boxers who’ve won several tournaments and Olympic medals to boot. We have made major noise in a way we almost couldn’t have dreamed of on these fronts.

We are more than a nation of war. Yet we’ve stood up to major alliances, including the events of the 2014 Mirevia Crisis. We assisted after the nation of Turntry was struck by nuclear warheads.

We have made friends and enemies alike. The former are so strong and interesting that the latter does not really matter. We’ve led campaigns which lasted years and ended even longer ago. We are a diverse nation that’s a part of a flourishing society. We do not treat our soldiers like resources built to die for politics.

I am so proud to be Vannish, to be a Vangazi. We have reached out to those with different views and urged moderation. We’ve even funded clandestine operations to rile up certain establishments. And every, single thing was worth it. Every reaction. Every set of hurt feelings, false judgement and laugh at their expense. Just as every smile, bond and alliance was equally so.

Worth it.

I say to other world leaders, expand your horizons. Bring your nations into the sporting world. Build major companies and put them on the international stage. Not just with storefronts, but by getting those companies involved.

Godspeed to you multiverse! Good luck with your development.

@Prince F. Vang Well spoken. Unfortunately, our nation is not great at forming alliances. Currently we have a couple of strong allies that have been essential to the progress of our nation. Otherwise we have entered several conflicts that we tend to win, but always at a cost. Even if I fail once in a while, I'm glad to be at the forefront of diplomacy in my nation. A nice, voluntary relationship is always preferable to war.

@Neural Processor 5474 I think highly of your nation. I see you are an ambassador, yes? Citizens of your nation seem respectful, kind and well spoken. War is overrated. There are nations which start conflict to try validating themselves as powerful. But they are truly insecure. There is a time for conflict. The Vannish often work together to help solve international strife cooperatively with others.

Perhaps I can put you in touch with Vannish diplomats to help start official negotiations. Our nations should definitely build trade ties.

@Prince F. Vang We try our best to appear respectful and kind to other nations. There is never a case in which a negative perception is helpful.

I should inform you that the Mainframe tends to make long-term alliances only when there is a significant material benefit in making them. There usually is, and we are always open to speaking with foreign diplomats. I am an ambassador, and I would certainly like to visit Vangaziland sometime.

There's discussion the RAJ is looking to send RBI agents to probe further into the supposed protests of the Shikonjima-Ferinan Archipelago Reunification Process. Just my own opinion is Her Majesty the Empress and Agent Black should investigate to prove things are working as promised. There's all these rumors of suppression but I imagine it's nothing more than a bunch of republican nuts trying to spread propaganda and falsehoods. I'd even offer up myself if we set up a Military Mission to help oversee the process. As such that's the Empress's decison to make for now if civil law enforcement is the way to go, then so be it. Still I do feel our Empress is dragging her feet on the matter to please everyone.

My sister and I are looking to pass a resolution in the Domino Assembly to praise Yamura no Kyouko. I hope Her Grace will appreciate even a symbolic gesture as we are still subjects ourselves of Her Majesty our Empress. That said, I do not agree with my elder sister, I feel The Empress is wisely trying to evaluate the situation and if and when the time comes to lend our help, we'll have everything set. As our father taught us, only a fool rushes to battle.

@Predislav Kladnov It does make sense to strengthen one's borders and take care of your populace. I agree.

@Ribín Réamhaibí of the Tribe of Antrim Aww. Aren't you a doll. Let me educate you on Vannish sports.
Ilysea Amphitheater Classic - Champion, Linda Henshmen
Multiverse Fighting Championships Heavyweight Belt, Otto Bjorn - Light Heavyweight Belt, Marcus Frankerssen - Welterweight Belt, Linda Henshmen
Multiverse Boxing Organization Featherweight Runner Up, Linda Henshmen - Featherweight Champion, Abigail Kaldwell from our puppet state Wrexwic
Olympiad XIII Linda Henshmen - Gold, 63 kg Judo - Gold, Lightweight Boxing - 1st Place(Demonstration Event), Lightweight MMA (plus numerous other fight medals from others)

This is the story of Linda Henshmen and why she really is a legend. Not just because I said so on social media. Vangaziland nor her puppet entities ran any of these tournaments. Some of the top, no, THE top athletics nations of the multiverse took part in these events. Look at how many years took place between these events. It started with a simple boxing title. Then she joined an MMA tourney and won a belt, as did her two teammates. Then she entered multiple events in the Olympiad and won gold-gold-gold. Winning those medals is really hard for one person to do three times. Winning one or two can be done with effort. But to pull three among so many competitors? Keep in mind that she fought men in some of these competitions.

I see you are in middle school. I say to you, train yourself to get on Linda's level. Refine your discipline. Win several medals, not in a regional Olympiad... But in the official Olympiad which encompasses challengers from across the multiverse. I can do the same type of listing with our basketball team, it's titles and official world ranking. Or our lacrosse team and that of Wrexwic which have multiple titles and also held ranks from #1 to #3. I could do the same with Vannish Motors in the WGPC and the WGP2 where Jessica Franssen almost became as much of a legend as Linda Henshmen. Especially with her international rally title also tacked on.

There are even many more stories of our teams who simply fought hard and well without earning this success. But they left the field, arena or stadium knowing they were true competitors. Real showcases of heart, endurance and perseverance. It took years to build our best programs to their standing on or near the top.

I do hope to see many of the nations I see at places like PiffleNet take to the pitch in the greater sporting world. It's easy to claim to be the best at one thing or another. It is a different story to build something over years and years. This type of thing is why I am so proud of Vangaziland. We have done more internationally than simply blustering and endless war.

So I say to you, middle schooler. Be the best you can be. Grow to become one of the top athletes in the multiverse. Feel free to show me links to your competitions to enlighten me as well. By the way, a mixed martial art which has grown to almost become an indigenous style here is called Van Judo Jitsu.

Have a great day!

@Prince F. Vang: Remember, that you are talking to a middle schooler, yes (and starting this year, High Schooler), but that I can still place an arrow in the bullseye of an apple-sized target at 400 meters in nine out of ten shots and the same from the back of a galloping horse in three out of 5. Sadly, I would not be aware of any larger international competitions allowing me to display those skills at that distance (and our style of swordfighting finds little love outside of the Free Lands as well), but I can assure you, that I have a few trophies, both for team contests and for single contests. Among them my proudest are the Ironcastle Ironworks Junior Trophies of 2019 and 2018, not because of the wide field of participants, but because I won them in internal competition among the children of the workers of the company my Father works for. There're not many more honourable trophies, which I could achieve, if you ask me.
But you asked for more international competitions, so I ask you... ever heard of NASJAR 1 and NASJAR 2? Granted, I did not compete, but you did, in NASJAR 2... and it was aborted right in the middle of it, which is an utter shame. So, we do have our international successes outside of the more niche-sports like Sensha-Do (where we do have our successes as well, but I leave the tales of those to those who actually drove the tanks).
That being said, laddie, that little fist-swinging lassie is a nice, inspirational story. I personally prefer other stories.
Have a good evening!

@Yukari Kato: You want a recommendation? I would go without colouring the nails.

My friend, you are free behind the walls;
My friend, you are free even in this imprisonment;
If you are strong in courage and steadfast;
Then how can they hope to affect you, no matter what these bootlickers will do?


READ MY LIPS:

Glad tidings to the real Ferinans, glad tidings to the courageous ones who reveal the truth, and glad tidings to those who light the way in the darkness of oppression.

Is it not fascinating how, when an officially sanctioned rally occurs, when dozens of Mainlander cameras are there at the right time, pointed at a Hollywood stage, all those in attendance support the occupation?

But when an actual demonstration of the people occurs, it ends with violence and police brutality?

Why is it that the non-Mainlander media is ruthlessly mocked by the Mainlanders and their thugs, but none have been able to question its authenticity?

But why is it that citizens and politicians of countries, outside Princess Yamura's circle of allies, accuse the Mainlanders of deceit and forgery?

And is it not funny that the Mainlanders whine about the journalists of RIYANA, when it is but a news agency - it doesn't publish its own articles!

THINK!

Hold fast, my brothers and sisters, for our struggle immovably marches forth! Our voice is being heard on every continent of the world, and every day, more people rally to support our righteous cause - check all over the internet if you ever doubt this. And every day, Princess Yamura and her lackeys know their grasp on OUR ISLANDS slip further and further.

They realized we are many, so they have brought in foreigners and paid actors!

They realized we are strong, so they spread lies and engineer falsehoods!

They realized we are steadfast, so they drown out discourse online AND offline with their enforcers!

They now realize the strength of the people's will, and how feeble theirs' are, and so they've called in Kuronamian - FOREIGN - spies!

The Mainlanders will not stop at anything to eliminate us. But know this, we shall, we will, remain. And nothing can change our will.

Long live the Ferinan Archipelago, forever free, and forever independent!

LEAKED DOCUMENTS, PHOTOS REVEAL SHIKONJIMANESE FORCES AND ALLIES PREPARING FOR FERINAN INVASION

Elements within the government of Shikonjma who oppose the annexation of the Ferinan Archipelago have leaked a cache of extremely sensitive documents to our journalists at VickyLeaks, confirming suspicions that regime forces and their allies are gearing up for a massive assault on the islands, backed up by significant naval power. This comes as calls grow internationally for the Shikonjimanese regime to reverse its decision and hold a referendum on the sovereignty of the Ferinan Archipelago. In the last number of days, there has also been evidence of massacres perpetrated by authorities against demonstrators who oppose the demonstration. This information was provided to us by anonymous, high-ranking officials in both the foreign affairs department of the government who sympathise with the plight of the Ferinan people.

It is publicly available information that Astarian naval unit Carrier Group 32 is currently transiting close to Shikonjima and the Ferinan Archipelago. A number of days ago, news broke of a catastrophic incident aboard the flagship IAS Ebon Atoll resulting in approximately 60 deaths, with many more injured. The pretext of 'military exercises' had been used to justify the presence of Carrier Group 32, but it is now clear through analysis of photographs taken from orbit and these leaked documents that their true purpose is to be used in crushing any uprising which occurs in response to the occupation of the islands by foreign troops. It is likely that this accident has set back plans for the invasion by a number of days or weeks as medical facilities onboard are overwhelmed.

The leaked documents show correspondence between Minister for Foreign Affairs, Jitsuko Sageshima, and individuals from countries friendly to Shikonjima, including discussions for plans to land a sizeable number of soldiers on the islands to assist domestic police forces in quelling the protests as well as combatting any possible armed resistance to the occupation, which officials predict to be extensive. E-mails from Sageshima also confirm suspicions that pro-Shikonjima rallies in the Ferinan Archipelago were organised and funded by the government in an attempt to prove domestic support for annexation and that Shikonjimanese state media is underreporting both national opposition and the size of anti-annexation protests to a significant degree.

I don’t know what the hell is going on in Shikonjima, but it sounds kinda like what’s going on here in The Isles, except a little more violent.

@Kiri It gets sorta bad here, but not as bad as your describing. It’s nice that you have a friend with a four wheel drive to help. It seems like the weathermen always get the weather predictions wrong.
