Welcome to the Region of Ordis - a veritable melting pot of cultures, races, religions and creeds. From the glittering azure waves of the great expanse that is the Thalassic Ocean, to the soaring mountain ranges and highlands of Northern Orda: Ordis' climate and geography is just as varied as it's inhabitants.

A RECENT HISTORY OF ORDIS


As all begins, so too must it end.
So it was that the first Endwar brought on the destruction of the vestigial Ottmari empire, a relic of a foregone era of feudal absolutism. The pillars of its temples crumbled under the sheer weight of industrialised total war. Its banners of antiquity; swept away by the winds of progress. Western Orda had come to learn to live under the dominance of a new overlord, the Holy Khorneran Empire. The world was irreparably altered, as the mighty Kolish Empire was left shattered and humiliated, its grasp on its territories too weakened by defeat. Across the narrow sea seperating Orda from Escar, the Nerotysian peninsula sprung into open revolt against its foreign masters. The once white snow of the empire ran red with blood as revolutionaries raised their banners in the same crimson hue; the banners of the furious proletariat. Revolution seemed to sweep across Ordis, as on the Valeyan continent the anarchist uprising in Faldarun heralded the advent of the Faldarunic Confederation.

The war had changed much of Ordis, ancient institutions and systems of vassalage once considered eternal had come toppling down. Empires were shattered, and the blasphemous ideologies of communism and anarchism had taken root in a world that once preached the divine right of kings and emperors to be absolute. No longer could monarchs feel safe and secure in their palaces away from the common crowd. The conflict of this new world were no longer ones soley fueled by the desire for territory or resources, but ideology. Yet the roots of hatred run deep, and even the threat of radical uprisings could reconcile the embittered nations of world. Against all odds, however, the next decade was one of peace, albeit an uneasy one.

All that ended with the rise of the fascist Vyelitma Kachan in 1928, who emboldened the revanchist Kolish nation with a new sense of purpose. Her fiery rhetoric of hatred and conquest united a humiliated nation under a new banner. Just as communism celebrated its coming of age a decade ago, fascism was now spreading across Ordis like wildfire. In New Spanishland, the regime of Eutanasio Rodriguez saw the end of its tradition of constitutional monarchy as its Emperor and his retinue fled the land for asylum in Khornera, now reconstituted as the United Empire following its victories in the First Endwar. In Transoxthraxia the decline of the prestige of the old monarchy led to the rise of the Iron Circle. Preaching national resurgence and an end to the shackles of the weak monarchy, the Iron Circle formed an alliance of convenience with Kachanist Kolintha, in the hope of making their vision for Transoxthraxia a reality. Kachan, appointed Konzhun of Kolintha by a newly crowned Empress, set her eyes on fulfilling her promises to the Kolish people: to retake what was once theirs. War ignited in august of 1937, as the Kolish Empire and it's Transoxthraxian allies began their campaign across Escar, and attacked the Revolutionary Union of Nerotysia, sparking yet another conflict that would take the lives of millions. The Second Endwar had begun.

The two-sided nature of the conflict changed drastically when New Spanishland, aided by Kachanist Kolintha, declared war on its northern neighbour, the United Empire of Khornera. With one fell swoop, a third faction had joined the fray; the Thalassic Sphere. Unwilling to associate itself with the communist regimes that it considered just as despicable, the Sphere went its own way in waging war against the Axis. The war would last for more than a decade, and claim the lives of dozens of millions. Even the defeat of Vyelitma Kachan did not seem to end the war, as the communist forces now clashed with the Sphere over the future of the defeated powers, sparking yet another armed conflict.

The people of Ordis were weary, and for them it seemed a blessing that this conflict was but a short one. Nerotysia saw itself ousted from Kolintha and the shortly-lived Socialist Republic of West Transoxthraxia saw itself reunited under its Khorneran-sponsored eastern counterpart. Fascism in Ordis seemed to have died as fast as it had risen, and in a blaze of fire the two dominant ideologies in Ordis were now that of communism and Khorneran constitutionalism and capitalism.

For decades now, the peace between the two blocs had held. Nuclear deterrence had made a total war between the dominant superpowers near impossible, and for a time Ordis found peace under the umbrella of Mutually Assured Destruction. In those decades leading up to the third millennium, little has changed. Despite limited market liberalisation in Nerotysia, the communist party retains its power. All the while a new axis has formed between Khornera, Kolintha, and New Spanishland; the Greater Ordic Union. Under a common banner the three nations now march forward as the world's first superstate, unwilling to back down in their quest to banish communism from Ordis. However, the sentiments of Khornera, and later GOU, rapidly devolved from anti-communism into anti-socialism, to a point where even social-democrats had their loyalty questioned. Discontent with this world order, the Nordic nations of Ordis found their own pact of mutual development and defense, centered around their common Nordic heritage. At the same time, the signing of the Batavia accords between Faldarun and Den Helder marks the beginning of intensified cooperation on the Valeyan continent. Other states too look towards unity in these dangerous times.

Tensions are once again rising as the GOU becomes increasingly eager to assert its position internationally, while at the same time the Revolutionary Union finds itself reverting more and more to a hardline international stance. The Ordic League, the international forum for negotiation and conflict resolution between states, has managed to keep the peace until now, although not without significant effort. Yet for now it almost seems as if the nations of Ordis are uninterested in peace, seeking to remake the world in their vision. A new generation of leaders has risen, and with them, the flames of conflict burn ever greater.





Government and Constitution

The Ordic government is designed for efficiency and effective decision making. Presently, it consists of two elements; the executive, consisting of the two Consuls Kolintha and Khornera, and the secretariat, made up of Transoxthraxia, the Secretary for Admission and Meriad, the Secretary for Lorekeeping. The Consuls make all important decisions through unanimity, and appoint the secondary branch of government; the secretaries of state. The Secretary for Admission is concerned with the expansion of the region through the attraction of nations that are interested and potentially active in the region while the Secretary for Lorekeeping is responsible for creating and maintaining regional IIWiki pages.

The Liber Ordica - our constitution - is more than just an outline of government however. It also contains the regional rules and disciplinary code, so upon applying, you automatically agree to its contents and are assumed to have read it in it's entirety.

Where must we go, we who wander this wasteland, in search for our better selves?
In Egypt's sandy silence, all alone,
Stands a gigantic Leg, which far off throws
The only shadow that the Desert knows:—
"I am great OZYMANDIAS," saith the stone,
"The King of Kings; this mighty City shows
"The wonders of my hand." The City's gone,
Nought but the Leg remaining to disclose
The site of this forgotten Babylon.

We wonder, and some Hunter may express
Wonder like ours, when thro' the wilderness
Where London stood, holding the Wolf in chace,
He meets some fragment huge, and stops to guess
What powerful but unrecorded race
Once dwelt in that annihilated place.

National information
Official Name: The Meteci Unitary State
Shortened Name: Metec
RP Population: 69 Million

Culture and Ethnicity: Meteci culture itself is a culture that promotes family, respect, and a loyal attitude (Very similar to WWII Japan's.). The culture has a very industrial and creative attitude encouraged (Similar to Germany's back in WWI). Along with these, it is a very moralistic culture and is rather isolationist when it comes to being introduced to the cultures of other nations. The language of the Meteci people is a very unique sounding language. It enjoys employing sounds from letters like V, L, K, R, and Z. The language itself is also unique in the sense that it structures itself like English where most words have a neutral gender. Oh also, Meteci are Caucasians when it comes to race.

Government Type: National Socialist Dictatorship
Head of State: Yhorveck Saal
Head of Government: Yhorveck Saal

National Overview: Metec has long been a very quiet and content nation until international elements used the nation as a battleground for their ideals. Such as communism and capitalism. Due to these international aggressions, the nation of Metec was plunged into endless civil wars and politico-economic turmoil. The "Era of Hardships" ended once a bright young man by the name of Yhorveck Saal took charge of the Meteci Unitary Party; A radical new party promoting a third way from the international backed ideals of capitalism and communism. Once the Unitary Party got in power a massive purge began where communist sympathizers were almost completely wiped out. The capitalist supporters fell in line under Unitary Rule.

The Unitary State, while friendly and rather quiet on the international stage, does not give trust to other nations and has adopted an economic system promoting self sufficiency. This however, is taking time to take effect due to the recovery efforts from the civil wars still taking place.

Armed Forces: The Meteci armed forces primarily focus on land forces and a very well disciplined air force. (Like WWII Germany) The Military as a whole comprises of 2.3 Million souls, 1.3 of which being reservists. The military itself (while still employing technology) enjoys discipline and an educated fighting force over just having technology serve it. Thus allowing the Metec forces to still be really competent even with outdated weaponry.

The Metecsarie (The army.) comprises the most (550k units) of the active military. (Another 500k Are in the reserves.) It mostly employs infantry and heavy armor., and prioritizes blitzing.

The Metecsaire Fore (The Airforce) employs the 2nd most (300k units) of the active and reservist portions of the military. It prioritizes CAS and Tactical bombing, while still remaining competent in other fields an air force can cover.

The Metecsnavale comprises the least amount (250k units) the active and reserve portions of the military. However, it is still very well disciplined and supplied with good technology just like the other branches. "lacking" would be a better word than "neglected" when describing it. It prioritizes large ships and carriers over smaller destroyers and gunboats.

RP/Writing Samples:
What a lovely night it was in vegas, the muties scampering about, the anomalies giving off a small glow. Home sweet home, boring as usual. Another night, another body found, what a surprise! Walter's just been having such a nice week, all these supplies scavenged from the dead and ready to be sold (and of course the excess stashed for himself.). Just, one more body needed to complete his load so he can finally run off and sell it. Just one more. No biggie, lotta dead bodies, lotta goodies out there to find. Just another routine night.

"The fuck?" Walter broke the silent atmosphere with a surprised look on his face. He found a body alright, but it wasn't a normal one. No, this person got fucked up. Walter walked up to the bloody corpse and took his glove off, he covered his nose and checked if the body was still warm. It was. "Fucking fuck. Whatever killed him is probably still around." he whispered to himself as he looked around nervously. All it took was the sound of a rock falling to send him running into an old car and readying his rifle. "Come out you fucker."

It was just a few rats scurrying away. Walter had a puzzled look on his face as he approached the body again. He dropped to his knees to examine the body... There was shrapnel all over his body, along with the body obviously missing an arm.... There was only one explanation; The guy he found was some dumbass who blew himself up with a grenade. Nothing fucking good from that, maybe a spare magazine? ......... Just one MRE..... One.... Fucking.... MRE..... Walter just sighed as he grabbed it and stuffed it into his pack. It was time to move, he had almost enough to get a good load, but it's good enough. It's good to travel light anyways. Word around with the scavengers was that there were groups of others around Overton. Oughta have some good customers there, plus the long fifteen might as well have the random scavenger or two.

With a smirk on his face he made his way out of the outer Vegas area. It's gonna be a helluva journey, but it'll be worth it.

National information

Official Name: State of Kiyoshima
Shortened Name: Kiyoshima
RP Population: 79.5 million
Culture and Ethnicity: It's a mixture of Japanese, Korean and a bit of Chinese culture.
Government Type: Constitutional monarchy under military junta
Head of State: Emperor Hiroyuki Koizumi
Head of Government: Prime Minister Kou Maezawa (nominated by Emperor after coup)
National Overview: The nation itself is anti-communist, although recently some welfare policies as "Government funded healthcare in emergencies" have been advocated by politicians, while others have also advocated to stop pointing guns the whole time at socialist countries, and that it would be more beneficial to do trade. Nevertheless, the nation is anti-communist in most of it's policies, and the Communist Party of Kiyoshima itself is banned since the end of the Kiyoshimese War where the People's Republic of Kiyoshima fought against the State of Kiyoshima in the Cold War.

In the society, there are unwritten rules of Bushido, which were inherited from samurai to the civilian population itself. The virtues consist of righteousness, courage, benevolence, respect, sincerity, honor, loyalty and self-control, while associated ones are fraternal respect, wisdom and filial piety. Children at a young age are taught to respect their families and history, as well as the state for what it gives to the people. Children are encouraged to help each other, and are encouraged to speak and be true about their feelings, to think before taking action. The same values are important in Kiyoshimese politics. While many have accused the current Prime Minister who overthrew the Kurokawa government in a military coup as a 'breaker of these values', Maezawa has stated that he has sworn his oath to the constitution, not to the Kurokawa government. Most Kiyoshimese are very responsible and are taught to control themselves (self-control) in the face of temptations.

Citizens elect the Prime Minister every five years, and the Prime Minister can have a max of three terms. The Head of Government (The Prime Minister) is responsible for the government of Kiyoshima and organizes the cabinet as he/she sees fit. The position of Emperor is a figurehead position, although the Emperor is widely respected throughout Kiyoshima, which is why the Maezawa government requested the approval of the Emperor after the coup. The position of Emperor is passed through a bloodline of the Emperor's family, and there can also be an Empress. The government uses a first-past-the-post voting system, which means that you can only choose one person from everyone on the election ballot.

The Kiyoshimese economy is a market economy, although certain restrictions have been added to prevent the destruction of the enviornment or culturally important areas.

On the 9th of August 2016, General Kou Maezawa led a military coup d' etat against elected although Prime Minister Ryūji Kurokawa which was successful after the government and the prime minister were captured, arrested, and are to be trialed in the future. After the coup, Kou Maezawa declared elections will occur, while temporarily suspending the constitution and instituting martial law and a curfew. Maezawa also banned political parties and trade unions - as of now, they are unbanned. The justification for the coup was the rampant corruption in the nation and in all sectors, which was rampant in government and police. Elections are scheduled to occur at the end of August or at the beginning of or mid September.

NOTE: The coup d' etat is no longer canon.

Armed Forces: The Armed Forces are drafted from the population, although well equipped to respond to modern threats to the independence and territorial integrity of the state. All able Kiyoshimese have to serve at least three years in the Armed Forces. The Armed Forces have a estimate of 800,000 active personnel, with 125,000 in the Air Force, 175,000 in the Navy, and with 500,000 in the Army. An approximate of three million (3,000,000) serve in the reserve. Note that these numbers constantly fluctuate each year due to the draft and other finish their draft.

Accepted, Flauc! Welcome to Ordis. You'll be sent the regional password shortly.
Where must we go, we who wander this wasteland, in search for our better selves?
In Egypt's sandy silence, all alone,
Stands a gigantic Leg, which far off throws
The only shadow that the Desert knows:—
"I am great OZYMANDIAS," saith the stone,
"The King of Kings; this mighty City shows
"The wonders of my hand." The City's gone,
Nought but the Leg remaining to disclose
The site of this forgotten Babylon.

Wonder like ours, when thro' the wilderness
Where London stood, holding the Wolf in chace,

The Regional Leadership is trying out an "Open Community, Closed RP" approach, wherein there will no longer be a regional password and all will be welcome in the Ordic community. However, to join the IC canon and RP, players will still have to apply in this thread.

[spoiler=]
National information
Official Name:The United Imperial States of Tarnen
Shortened Name: Tarnen
RP Population: 81.2 million
Culture and Ethnicity: Similar to American culture in the sense that Tarnen is a giant melting pot of cultures stemming both from Tarnen's imperial conquest of surrounding nations centuries ago. Tarnenians have a strong sense of patriotism and are considered proud of its nation having a 1116 year history under one nation. Majority of citizens speak or have an understanding of its national language called Tarenish which is more or less English having evolved from the old language Ta'lin, similar to latin, and several other languages it has incorporated in its history.
Head of State: President Aegris Cronus
Head of Government: President Aegris Cronus
National Overview: Tarnen is considered a constitutional republic, with an election every 5 years to elect a new head of government, but they have no term limits though majority of former presidents have served at most 2 terms. Though their have been few exception the recent being Aegris in the first year of his 3rd term, being liked by many due to his charisma and work ethnic within the National Assembly. Tarnen has gone through many government and ideological changes throughout its history from lordships to kings, to even a brief communist regime.

The outbreak of EW1 Tarnen known then as the Tarnenian Empire, stay overall neutral to the war, focusing on keeping the peace with its borders many feared it would be drawn into the war. Though it maintain a helpful relationship to the outside world leading its ships and equipment to those that need it during the war, it remain unscathed. EW2 was a different beast the prideful Empire believe to could expand its borders hoping to turn its great empire into an immortal one spanning from one side of the Osava continent to the other and beyond, while others were busy with world war. But rather then external conflict that would fracture the empire it was internal a civil war that turn citizen against citizen. The Civil War lasted almost as long as EW2 ending with a peace conference with a communistic regime taking it western half naming it the Republic of Tarnen and its Eastern half becoming the Democratic States. 25 years of skirmishs along its borders, until the Red Regime topple under its own hubris, and both sides work together under one banner the Imperial States of Tarnen.

Afterwards it was tasked with squashing as dissidents trying to remove the stink the 'Red nation' had left behind. Tarnen become to flourish under its democractic rule having reindustrialize itself, become a power in its own right through its technological advancements.


(A brief summary of your nation's general political ideology and society.)
Armed Forces: Currently Tarnen has 600,000 active military personnel, service is not mandatory during peace times. With the Army as it strongest branch at 243,000 soldiers, Navy at 215,000, and the Air Force at 142,000. With 2 million soliders on reserve in case of war time.

Arnold had been arguing back and forth with the committee for hours, but it was seemingly in vain. "Senators, with all due respect, the plan I have proposed to you would keep heroes in check and an authority to answer to..." He was immediately cut off by the Senator leading the committee. "Dr. Smythe with all due respect to you and your service to this country me and the other Senators agree that this would exactly lead us down the same road as with the Justice Corp, which I remind you never answered to anyone in the first place, we unanimously agree that this proposal be denied." Banging the gravel ending the meeting as people in the room leaving slowly, as Arnold sat down in his chair defeated.

Arnold Smythe/NYC/Now
Siting down in his chair as he watched the news drinking his coffee with a small hint of alcohol in it. "In tragic news another former hero has been found dead in his apartment last night, Frank Tulley, known as the Bullet was found dead due to a self inflicted gunshot would to the head, police are not considering foul play...." Arnold turned off the television as he walked over to the window watching the quiet snow fall down onto the streets below blanketing the city in white. More and more former heroes were being killed some of them former Justice Corps members, he pondered to himself as he fixed his cuff links and tie before putting on his jacket and overcoat. Arnold himself was a former Justice Corps member himself, just walking to work looking over his shoulder was demeaning and in a sense nerve wrecking.

Putting on the final part of his clothing a red scarf and hat as he made his way out of his suite and onto the street below as he began the one mile walk to his job, consultant to the police force, in this case he was in the homicide division no doubt involving the Bullet's death today. He had several theories already and who was killing them only time would tell if one of these theories were proven correct.

Please do proofread. You show promise but it would be a lot easier to judge your skill if your app didn't have the grammatical errors.

Also; Osova is our African-esque continent. I can't exactly see your nation concept working there. PERHAPS if you originated from a Thalassic Empire colony that went rogue it might work. But that can be discussed further once Trans has gone over your app and given his judgement.

By way of explanation, I figured I should explain a bit of what's going on here: I [Esc] know Meriad, and occasionally lurk around his things, particularly after the start of the "Back to the U.S.S.R." thread. As such, I noticed the discussion on the RMB regarding bi/multipolarity and decided that it could be good fun to see what I could do to shake things up in a positive fashion. As such, I'm applying to fill the perceived dearth of additional, slightly more influential nations that can make for fun shifts in internal dynamics. Everything I develop as this nation's canon is subject to review by the current residents: in other words, I want to make this nation what can help regional roleplaying as I develop its history and national character; I want it to be something that strengthens the Ordic community. Whether or not you'd like me to make a puppet or use this nation is entirely up to you, though I shall say this one shares nothing with the IC state I would be representing in Ordis.
Thanks,
Esc


National Information
Official Name: La Confederación Popular de Gran Altiplano, the People's Confederacy of Great(er) Altiplano
Shortened Name: la Confederación, Gran Altiplano
RP Population: Roughly 73 million; possibly more, this is subject to your approval of my draft national history
Culture and Ethnicity: In terms of demographics, this is somewhat analogous to Bolivia and Chile, with the marked difference that the highland republic of Altiplano (from whence the nation derives its current name) is nearly all indigenous, whereas the coastal and lowland inner regions are exclusively Spanish-speaking: possibly indigenous as well, but certainly a second, larger people group.
Government Type: While nominally a pluralistic democracy, in effect the five different major parties are all regional brands of the single Partido Popular de la Confederación. Other parties are technically permitted, but given the fact that they maintain only token or regional representation, Gran Altiplano can be considered a single-party state for all practical purposes.
Head of State: Hilarión Carancho Menendez, Secretario del Partido Popular (official leader of the Party; has effective executive control on policy decisions)
Head of Government: Agustín Arce Pontevedra, Presidente de la Confederación (in charge of the State, leader for domestic governance and affairs)
National Overview: I'll need to run these past you / update them; the short version is as follows. Four lowland states, two with monarchies and established nobilities, come out of the Second Endwar rich yet with deep political and class divides as a result of the tensions their alliance with Khornera brought; their natural-resource-rich but sparsely populated neighbour to the north, Altiplano, works with a leftist revolutionary group within all four to stage a simultaneous revolution and unite the five as la Confereración. This is a fairly recent development and one that has led to rapid development and economic growth, along with a heightening of international tension as the new state aligned itself more closely with Nerotysia and the OCU.
Armed Forces: I have ideas, but they're subject to having a long talk with you lads on the subject of canon and shared history.

Escalan, welcome aboard! You are hereby formally accepted to Ordis. You are free to either move a puppet or your own nation into the region, but the administration does favour the admittance of your own nation [Escalan Corps-Star Island] into the region rather than a puppet.
Where must we go, we who wander this wasteland, in search for our better selves?
In Egypt's sandy silence, all alone,
Stands a gigantic Leg, which far off throws
The only shadow that the Desert knows:—
"I am great OZYMANDIAS," saith the stone,
"The King of Kings; this mighty City shows
"The wonders of my hand." The City's gone,
Nought but the Leg remaining to disclose
The site of this forgotten Babylon.

We wonder, and some Hunter may express
Wonder like ours, when thro' the wilderness
Where London stood, holding the Wolf in chace,
He meets some fragment huge, and stops to guess
What powerful but unrecorded race
Once dwelt in that annihilated place.

NOTE:- I did make some edits, mainly cultural.

National information
Official Name: The Divine Arbinate of Themattania

Shortened Name: Themattania

RP Population: 12.4 Million

Culture and Ethnicity: The people of Themattania are deeply rooted in their devoutness. Most aspects of their culture from art to literature have been defined by the advent of the Trinity Ecclesial, who for thousands of years have promoted Velyoritism through liberal and oppressive means. This culture is highly militaristic but not warring, this has been enforced by the Sentinel warrior class and the Trinity combined, demanding a perfect society using the discipline of the art of warfare as a almanac to livelyhood. Themattanian's generally have a great sense of cultural unity due to the Ecclesial. Though Themattania has been a original concept that I've developed for some time now, main cultural influences include: Afro-asiastic based language, basically Amharic with a mesoamerican and indian subcontinent based aesthetic and classical japan-like political system.

Head of State: Arbitress Henrietta Domina

Head of Government: Henrietta Domina

National Overview: Themattania is an absolute militaristic theocratic monarchy. The Arbiter is the semi-absolute monarch with it's powers limited by the Ecclesial and fellow Noble Clans. Essentially, Themattania works under a feudal-similar system, The Clans and their lords, rule equally over their holdings as the dominant warrior class called the Sentinels, the Arbiter(or Arbitress) has their power validated by the Sentinels. However the absolute ruler of Themattanian policy and rights is the Trinity Ecclesial. This church, ordains and backs the Arbiter. This works as a checks and balances naturally within the system, the Clans promise to be ordained and abide by the holy rules of succession while being able to retain their warrior class level status above the rest of society. In return, they must pledge loyalty to the Arbiter, and the Arbiter must pledge loyalty to the Ecclesial. Typically, the Arbiter is part of the Sentinel warrior class, and hails from one of the many Noble Clans. The Clans and church combined rule gracefully over the Arbinate and hold absolute power in mutual bond.

Armed Forces: Despite Themattania's size it has no required service, and though it does run a draft only a very select few are even chosen for review. The modern strategy of Themattania has been quality over quantity, with the military totaling at 30,000 personnel, this select group across all branches are held to the highest standard. These forces derive from each clan to create a combined force. Typically, the military is led by Sentinels while a select of peasants are drafted and evaluated vigorously to elite standards. The Ecclesial retains their own small force of 'Trinity's Guardians' numbered at 800.

Personal Information
writing example: this has no context as it's from a past RP, give me a prompt for something else if needed :)
As head of intelligence, Omura always liked to take the more personal missions. She really hates the Ouchi Shogunate, Tomura rubbed her the wrong way and her loyalty still was with the Taira's. However she had devoted herself to saving the country in this moment, a job she regretted but took seriously. She sat the ledge a tall building, the streets of the normally crowded downtown nearly empty tonight, though the city was always white and stale during the day, it was lit up at night in beauty. Even under Bukan occupation, the city was always lucrative in it's nightlife. Though more arrogant Samurai and soldiers filled the streets, Omura just stared down in hate, she hated samurai, she also hated Shinobi(ninja) just as much, too bad she was one. She heard running footsteps approach from behind followed by heavy breathing, she turned around, bouncing off the ledge onto the roof properly, staring down a rooftop runner who was extending a cylinder case to her. She grabbed it and waved the runner off, he ran into the night evading and overcoming his obstacles.

Omura had pioneered runners, 'parkour revolutionaries' she liked to call them, delivering information the only safest way possible, by paper and hand through a complex network of physical obstacles, hard to trace and capture by officials. She unpacked the note from the metallic cylinder and read the unfolding note, she knew her mission for tonight. Wisely selecting her route she took off across the rooftops, each guard she came across overlooking the streets, she took out with perfect stealth. Her chi-block skills were perfection, in a few blows she would disable their entire ability to move. Finally she had reached her destination, the main city square which was empty, every corner with a pair of eyes on it for anything suspicious. She was able to find a hidden vantage point for observation, as a motorcade drove through surrounded by heavily armed escort. Why always the tough Shite, Omura sighed to herself, as she observed the convoy halt.

The convoy had stopped for a moment, and then continued on, Omura kept up by her keen maneuvering around obstacles, even taking shortcuts to gain an advantage against the convoy. Finally however, she got close enough on the sidwalk to see the banners flying from the Limo's, they were Nekhaga's. By the route they were headed, Omura assumed they were headed to their renovated Castle, likely bought out from some poor minor clan subjugated under the Otomo Shogunate, led by Miyasaki Otomo with the Nekhaga's being their right hand man. Quickly she darted down the dark alleys and scaled up city walls. Omura made her way an abandon car agarage next to an empty shopping centre, where her so-called 'get away' car was housed. It was a modest car, quiet but modified on the inside for the job, though she couldn't resist the black paint job. Driving through the city, she knew every checkpoint to avoid and police rotation. Out the countryside on a dirty backway road she drove with her headlights entirely off, she was nearly suicidal at this point only that every sensitive feeling, turning and jerk on this unsettling road guided Omura's recollection of it.

In the far distance she spotted the convoy, on the main road headed to Furi Castle like she had predicted. She sped up only slightly, hoping no night vision or infrared was being trained on her, as the to the naked eye her car was invisible in the darkness of unlit night. The convoy had got a little ahead before she was able to exit onto the main highway, it was normally empty however, most used the trains, Toshikawa's highway's were always poorly lit and a second thought. With reactionary attacks from Toshikawa going on, the power situation only became worse. She pulled off on another exit, speeding up and a far off side rode to gain speed ahead of the convoy. For several minutes she sped without a care, dangerously with her headlights off, listening to the thump of the electronica on her Ipod, it was fitting for the moment. She drove until the convoy wasn't seen behind her, then she parked her car lazily in the tall grasses along the road. Only mistake being, these were farm fields and her care was deep in water. She sighed, "Knew I should've chose a better stash." she grieved, wading through the mud.

Finally she found her stashed chest, pulling it from a keep crest in a local pond. Opening, revealed an array of explosives and a small grenade launcher. This is all she needed for the job, even though her car was sunk basically, she always came up with the best escape on her toes. The convoy approached, hitting the mark Omura had set she set off the charges in and around the convoy, immediately striking the many SUVs with a relentless barrage of grenades. Pulling out her silencer, taking out the rest disoriented guards was easy. She approached the Limo as Tinzin Nekhaga stepped out, the eldest son of Anzai Nekhaga, pointing a handgun right at her. Almost like a natural reflex, under the pressure Omura's precision guided her silently fired bullet to Tinzin's hand. She then sprinted at him, drop kicking him with absurd elegance. Anyone else who opposed her was quickly dealt with. "Omura." Tinzin grinned from his back, underneath her foot. "Good to see you again."

"I need information."

"Ofcourse, being the Ouchi's lackey now I'm sure you've been cleaning up shop real well, Shinobi." Tinzin said.

"I'd be careful with your words." Omura said, before standing back and placing a round in Tinzin's right leg, as he screamed out Omura talked over him. "Want to walk now?"

"F-f-fuck you."

"Poor choice of words my lord." She said again, placing two rounds in the other leg, he was beginning to quickly bleed out. "Mommy Daimyo isn't here to protect you for your antics."

"Okay! Okay! What the fuck do you want to know!?"

She place a round in the other leg again, "You know what the fuck I want!"

Tinzin could hardly think over the pain, "He's in...he's in fucking Daijin! He's hiding, Muto Otomo is hiding in fucking Daijin."

"Where in Daijin! What are they doing in Daijin!"

"I-I don't know what they're doing! I j-j-just know tha-that Mu-Muto Otomo is cooking up something b-bi-big. He plans on taking the Capital and eliminating the Shogunate! But it's not him who is behind it all!"

Omura leaned down, "Who."

"One who has too much prestige in this country, their merit alone and deception can turn this country around, for good or bad. The Ouchi allies, even the Taira, even the Miroma, will turn against the Ouchi Shogunate in her rise! I don't trust her, neither does Miyasaki but Muto is going against command."

"Why didn't you tell Bukan Shogun Miyasaki sooner."

Tinzin chuckled shamefully, "I took a fucking bribe, a bribe. She's more powerful than you think."

"Who exactly is she?"

"The dead Queen of Toshikawa, Su Mai Nekhaga."

National information
Official Name: The Federal Republic of Autonomous Unified Territories

Shortened Name: FRAUT or The Federal Republic

RP Population: 54 Million

Culture and Ethnicity: Primarily based upon the culture present in European nations. Some emphasis on individualism and self interest, but also heavily devoted to family. This society evolved from a more family focused society to an individually focused one during the 1980s. Primarily slavic ethnicity. Traditionally the populus has spoken Russian, but after the Glorious War (1949 - 1967), english has become increasingly common, and became the second official language in 1992.

Government Type: Single Party State

Head of State: The First Secretary (Also head of government)

Head of Government: N/A (The Second Secretary is not the head of government, but rather the second in command of the country, on all matters)

National Overview: The FRAUT has had a very turbulent past. Prior to 1949, the FRAUT was led by a Tsarist government. Under this government the FRAUT was primarily a capitalist society, with very high wealth inequality. In this society the richest lived in opulence, while the majority of the poorest citizens lived in squalor. The Tsarist period did not have any social welfare, as there was little to no progressive movement in the FRAUT. Throughout the 1900s, some members of the lower class became familiar with socialist principles and worked with members of the Octoberist Revolution in the Soviet Union. The works of Chernyshevsky, and others soon filled underground movements within the FRAUT. This led to the establishment of a Communist Party, which had initiated a widespread period of agitation by the late 1930s. By 1940, the resentment with the Tsarist government was so strong, that mass protests broke out in cities across the FRAUT. The government responded by firing into the protests, leading to mass hysteria and essentially sending the country into a civil war. The war, later known as the Glorious War saw the Loyalists (those loyal to the communist party), fight the state (The Tsarists). The war lasted until 1967, when the Communists finally destroyed the final stronghold of the Tsarists.

Millions had been killed during the 18 years of fighting, and almost all of the country's infrastructure was destroyed. Instead of taking a hard line communist stance and engaging in a cultural revolution as China did, the FRAUT's leadership realized that their grip on power was tenuous, and decided to engage in a campaign of moderate reforms. So, the party maintained its socialist ties. However, the party abandoned their communist allegiance and by 1968 the party was decidedly capitalist with socialist leanings in welfare, education and healthcare.

The main mandate of the FRAUT's single party government is to pursue technological modernization, industrialization and some improvements of human rights. The FRAUT opened its national vehicle manufacturer, Federal Automotive in 1978, and since has become a leader in automotive manufacture.

Armed Forces: The Army (Known as the Land Force Command or LFCOMM) is currently the only armed forces of the nation, as massive re-structuring efforts are in place. All Soviet era equipment is being discarded in favor of high technology, western based designs. The entire air force, previously based on Soviet technology was disbanded in October 1994, and currently massive re-structuring efforts are being conducted.

The Army has transitioned from a conscript force, and is now a professional voluntary Army. It has approximately 560,000 active members. It is organized into five divisions, organized geographically.

Personal Information
RP/Writing Samples:
/North Olestya, October 1994/

October nights in North Olestya always seemed the same. A drab, gray fog masked the streets and a drizzle meant everything was perpetually soaked. While the rain continued to pour outside, a different but equally endless routine occurred inside the Presidium, the head of the Federal Republic's government. Staff officers, aides, and bureaucrats hurried down the seemingly endless well lit hallways, adorned with maroon carpet. This was not an environment to engage in talks by the water cooler. Centralized government had its benefits, but it meant the Presidium was constantly engaged in an agricultural plan in Doroshin, or in healthcare policy in Isolnost. Inside the office of the First Secretary, the atmosphere was more melancholy and relaxed. The maroon carpeting and wood paneling almost seemed to reflect less of the grandeur and more of the status quo of the party. It was 1994, computers were beginning to be extensively used and e-mail had just entered usage. Yet, the office of the First Secretary looked like a relic of the Tsarist era. Perhaps this is why the Presidium was known to be so apathetic towards issues of the people. They were surrounded by the very vestiges of an era where oppression was the order of the day. The First Secretary was Ghyunfiek Tatreygoras, and he certainly was not the charismatic Vladdrejov Dimitrov of the 1960s. First Secretary Tatreygoras had not made his career on the victory of the Glorious War. He had not fought shoulder to shoulder in the defense of South Grozny, nor had he instigated the socialist realization of the 1980s. Instead, First Secretary Tatreygoras had spent his career as a bureaucrat in the Ministry of Industrial Development. No class realization, no fighting the traitors. He only fought mountains of paperwork and endless meetings. Although this didn't lend him as a vigorous revolutionary like his predecessor, his extensive bureaucratic experience meant he had an unspeakably calm temper and levelheadedness in complicated legal and policy matters.

The old, brass clock indicated 15 minutes past seven as the First Secretary and his closest cabinet members sampled yet another new Whiskey in his office. "It's quite rough this one, the oak completely overpowers the hickory, and the body is all over the place", remarked Undersecretary of Industrial Development Rejijoslos Tuponel. The Undersecretary, despite coming from a poor industrial family in South Grozny had taken a liking to the finer products in the FRAUT when he assumed office. The First Secretary swished the glossy amber drink and responded: "Ah, you know how Maxtopian oak is this time of year. It's a miracle at all they could even get a medium body to appear out of this hickory mess, in fact I think it's almost clever for them to--- the First Secretary was abruptly cut off when a panicked aide rushed into the office without knocking, almost unheard of in a building where tradition ruled daily activities.

This was not a low level bureaucrat who accidentally found the First Secretary when he was looking for the Agricultural Measurement Department, a common mistake among new aides in the building. This was a dispatch handler from the Federal Commissariat for State Security. After the Commissariat abandoned their role as the hired killers of the government, their role as counter-intelligence and intelligence handling was largely relegated to interactions with the police. The messenger did not even give the proper FRAUT greeting, and instead blurted out a very direct: "SIR, Restricted/Secret Dispatch from the Joint-Commissariat Security Service, addressed as first priority to yourself", only managing to quickly get a "glory to FRAUT" out before sprinting back to a waiting staff car. The First Secretary wasted no time and simply dropped his whiskey glass. He grabbed his FRAUT patterned silver letter opener and cut the soft security tape on the document cover. After two minutes of deafening silence, the First Secretary, usually eloquent, managed to say: "Rejij, go the hell home immediately, and make sure you are with your family". The Undersecretary realized the seriousness of the dispatch, and took his coat and vacated the office in seconds. The time had reached half past seven, and most key members had already left work for the day. In minutes, the First Secretary sent out an All Arms Alert, and across North Olestya, a fleet of staff cars hurriedly shuttled ministers and officers back to the Presidium.

2 doors down, the Presidium's key Defense and Military members had gathered in the great conference room. The room, designed to enable discussion of the entire Presidium felt empty with only 15 members sitting at the massive table. For the next 27 hours, the Ministers and Defense staff would call this room their home as they dealt with the most serious threat to FRAUT Security since Black Monday. The First Secretary broke the silence without any pleasantries: "Alright, I just received a dispatch from the Joint Commissariat. Karlukistan has gone to hell, armed uprising in the streets, military coup in progress, complete failure of governance". The silence was almost unbearable. Ministers looked straight in front of them, no one so much as moved a pen. Finally, the calculating and cold Loyal Intelligence Corps Commander, Colonel-General Joseph Straviskol directed: "Credibility Secretary?". The First Secretary shot back: "Joint-Commissariat HUMINT (Human intelligence) Source Handlers confirm agitation from both military and political levels. SIGINT (Signals intelligence) intercepted a large amount of spectrum last night, but couldn't tie it to any credible actions until now. It's absolutely clear that the actions are coordinated, and occurring at all levels". The First Secretary changed the direction of discussion by calling on the Minister of External Connections: "What's the risk to the border regions, minister?". The older secretary sternly responded: "Secretary, if we lose the heartland outside Gregorna, we'll see agitators coming into our sparsely populated agricultural lands. If I know anything from history, we can't let another traitorous army form in the borders. I know the Glorious War was a proud moment, but not one we want to repeat any time soon". With that, the First Secretary called a 15 minute break, and told aides to get as many refreshments and snacks as possible. This was going to be the longest night of his career, and it was only 8:15.

The mumbling of conversation was interrupted this time by the Second Secretary, with his characteristically humanistic and poetic prose: "Alright cabinet, blood fills the streets of Karlukistan tonight, let us make haste to liberate those who choose not for war". He continued: "It is my assessment we cannot let this issue go unchallenged. Land COM (Land Force Command), are kinetics (Fighting) on the table?" The bold and seasoned Commander of the Land Force Command responded: "Always, secretary". The Second Secretary responded quickly: "Good, Ghyunfiek, are you in agreement to pursue kinetic action?" The First Secretary looked up from the maple desk and responded: "I fear so, although I detest the idea of another 18 year war, this will be a preventative rather than reactive action." He continued, "Does everyone in this room agree?". A dull and unisoned "Yes Secretary" echoed in the mostly empty hall. Acknowledging the agreement, the First Secretary addressed the Land Force Commander: "Land COM, call 1 Div (First Mechanized Division) and 2 Div (2nd Mechanized Division) to high readiness". The general quickly scrawled down the instructions as: "1 AND 2 DIV, PREPARE FOR INVASION, CALL 1 AND 2 DIV COMMAND AND CALL JOINT LAND OPS". Barely having enough time to write the heavy instructions, the Counter-General responded "Yes Secretary, 72 hours and we can be on the move".

Suddenly, relatively unknown and even less important Minister from External Operations stood up and addressed the Presidium: "First Secretary, while agree we need to stop the revolt, we're going to look like bloody Bigtopians with a seemingly warrant-less invasion like this. Unless we want to become the next war criminals of the World Assembly, I think we need to be relatively covert about this". The First Secretary, who had never heard of, much less seen this man, responded: "What is your name, Minister?". The Minister sheepishly responded, almost shaking in nervousness: "Minister Fredolov, Secretary, Glory to FRAUT". Uncharacteristically, the First Secretary responded: "Stop shaking, you're a grown man for the love of FRAUT. Everyone else in this room, why does a junior Minister have to propose the biggest obstacle to our plan - where are you Foreign Activities Minister?". The room erupted in applause, the young Minister almost collapsed back into his chair. The First Secretary built off his last point: "I shouldn't you single out Foreign Activities, but I need solutions here. We need to mitigate fears that FRAUT is returning to its old civil war roots. This whole plan is terribly obvious, the WA will see right through it". He addressed Land COM: "General, how can you conceal 1 and 2 DIV?". The General responded: "Secretary, two fighting divisions is not something our media can interpret. It's an offensive formation of tens of thousands of soldiers and hundreds of armored vehicles. When we send Mechanized Divisions, our intent is always clear". The Minister from External Activities finally pitched in: "Secretary, we've been conducting peace-support training missions of the Karlukistanian Armed Forces for years. Perhaps we insert a more covert force, while also stating we were already present and therefore there was no invasion?" The Second Secretary countered: "Clever... but what is covert about our Mechanized Divisions?". The Land Force Commander chimed in: "Secretary, forget the mechanized divisions. We can send our air deliverable Third Light Mechanized Division. Instead of charging across the plains of Gorozinh, we can send ten thousand troops into the capital by tomorrow morning". The First Secretary nodded in approval. He furthered: "This will work, and we'll be able to avoid WA legal issues, because you can't invade something you already are present in. Perfect. Now, the key to this operation will be to quickly destroy the will of the anti-government troops, and quickly transition into country-building and restoring autonomy to the Karlukistani government. I don't want to be seen as the oppressors, so we'll make sure our media portrays that". The Minister of Communication responded faintly from the back of the table: "Yes Secretary, no invasion, peace-making only, build the autonomy of the local government". The First Secretary nodded once more, finally lifting his heavy look of concern. He remarked with a relieved tone: "It has been 27 hours of straight talking. This was my life in Industrial Development". The table let out a sigh and shared laughter at the comical remark ending a grueling session. "Land COM, I wish you could sleep too, but I want 3 Div in country no later than tomorrow afternoon. Communication, I want a press release ASAP. I'll be on national TV tomorrow". The General and Minister acknowledged the request in unison.

While the Secretaries, Generals, and Ministers funneled out of the conference room drenched in sweat, to waiting staff cars, the First Secretary and Second Secretary made their way back to the office to share one drink before leaving. The First Secretary placed his tie on his desk, and removed the cap to the decanter. He asked his confidant: "Are we back to our old war mongering, purging ways Stafelon?". The Second Secretary shrugged off the remark, downing more of the whiskey: "I think not Ghyunfiek. You'll be known as the First Secretary who finally used conflict to restore peace, not to divide. I think it's far less heroic, but it certainly is more productive". The First Secretary uneasily responded: "Perhaps, but changing from war fighting to supporting local governments will not be easy for the international community to accept". The Second Secretary chuckled back: "Sure, but would they expect any less from a career industrial planner?" The First Secretary laughed as well, and responded: "Perhaps all those years in the Stazgrod Mines killed my revolutionary fervor. For the better, I suppose". He concluded: "This whiskey's flavor is as chaotic as this night, I'll see you tomorrow on TV, Stafelon".

With that, both men left the office, and traveled down the soaked streets in staff cars back to their residences.

Just for the record; the Soviet Union does not exist in our canon.

Also, you will need some form of writing sample I think. Although I'll leave it the Minister of Recruitment to give you a prompt.

Indeed, just giving reference as it is challenging to understand some aspects unless there is a counterpart in reality.

Hey there, I apologize for my late intercession, it's Canadian Thanksgiving and I've been dealing with everything that comes with the delicious holiday. But our founder and glorious God-Emperor, Kolintha, is right. You do need to provide a writing sample. As I've taken a brief look at your post list and found nothing that is valid recently, I'll provide you a prompt.

But before I do so, I do want to make something entirely clear. While I do understand the need to build your nation's canon around historical events, especially if you've never participated in a region where there is an established, non-Earth canon, it should be pointed out (as Kol has so kindly done my job for me here) that there is no Soviet Union nor China in this universe. If possible, it may not be the worst idea for you to replace "Soviet" and "China" with stuff like "external influence" or something along those lines depending on the context. If you want, I'd be more than happy to help you out with this; feel free to send me a telegram.

Not mandatory, however. Just a reminder that what's written is definitely subject to change if accepted.

To get down to some more interesting business, I'll present to you a writing prompt. What this is essentially is a situation that I give you and that you'd write about in order to demonstrate your basic writing skills. Pretty simple, right?

An ideologically similar nation to yours on your border has maintained close diplomatic relations with your state for some time now. This nation, Karlukistan, is much smaller than you both in terms of population and economy. Its mostly rural state has been disrupted lately by a string of serious droughts and crop failures. The government, powerless to do anything due to corruption and economic incompetence, fails to take action.

A general uprising has begun, with large portions of Karlukistan's military joining in the revolution. The revolutionaries demand the immediate destruction of the government that is aligned towards yours and refuse to negotiate with either the Karlukistani government nor any international power. Without military and diplomatic action, Karlukistan's regime will surely fall. But with too much, you risk the sovereignty of Karlukistan and risk incurring the international community's wrath.

Your government has convened to discuss further potential involvement with the ongoing Karlukistani Revolution.


I expect to read both the government's decision as well as the actions taken by your government based on the decision made.

Where must we go, we who wander this wasteland, in search for our better selves?
In Egypt's sandy silence, all alone,
Stands a gigantic Leg, which far off throws
The only shadow that the Desert knows:—
"I am great OZYMANDIAS," saith the stone,
"The King of Kings; this mighty City shows
"The wonders of my hand." The City's gone,
Nought but the Leg remaining to disclose
The site of this forgotten Babylon.

We wonder, and some Hunter may express
Wonder like ours, when thro' the wilderness
Where London stood, holding the Wolf in chace,
He meets some fragment huge, and stops to guess
What powerful but unrecorded race
Once dwelt in that annihilated place.
