Tensions Rise as Topic of Republication Becomes Extremely Tense
The recent topic of republicanism has recently heated up as the Democratic Nationalists Party reformed and rebranded into the Republican Party and have put a bill up that would end the monarchy and instead replace it with a republic. Both the Imperial Tradition Party and the Conservative Party have both stated that this bill is treason. Although no formal charges have been pressed the issues surrounding this bill continue. The Conservative Party has pressed the claim that the bill is not only anti-monarch propaganda but also communist as well. These claims most likely stem from the fact the People’s Socialist Party supports the bill however the Republican Party has denied all allegations of turning Dankuk communist. The Conservative Party has also opened up an investigation into “links between the Conservative Party and Indrala,Kazulia or Saridan”. The Republican Party has stated that these investigations are simply witch hunts and are nothing more than an attempt to silence opposition. Also happening today,Taeyangdrou police surrounded the Republican Headquarters there. Anyone attempting to leave the building was arrested and sent to jail without a trial. The Republican Party has stated that these arrests are unconstitutional and if the prisoners are not released they will begin advocating violence.

New Wall May Be Built on Kazulian Border
Today the Imperial Tradition Party has proposed a bill to build a wall on the border with Kazulia. This would be a reconstruction of the wall that was destroyed in 4380 during the Sørvestland War and during the retreat of Kazulian Forces. The wall was 50 feet tall and was mounted with multiple machine guns that have a range of 30 meters. The ITP stated they wish to make the wall 100 feet tall,and mount not only machine guns but also anti-tank and artillery guns. The Republican Party of Dankuk has stated that they:
We do not wish to worsen relations with Kazulia

This may become a major talking point in the discussion of ending Kazulian sanctions.

Republicans attempt a coup! Parliament in Uproar
May 7, 4392 Taeyangsudo, Myeoggi

Image
Royal Guard Drills in front of palace

Dankuk is in an uproar as the treacherous Democratic Nationalists have Rebranded themselves the Republicans and have attempted to launch a coup d'etat. The coup failed, due to lacking sufficient support from the People's Socialists. This series of events started during a cabinet reshuffling by the new Prime Minister, Madame Hwangje Mi-na, in which DNP had been assigned away from Foreign Affairs. Shortly afterwards, DNP paramilitary forces tried to force through a Republic bill which would convert the Empire into a Westernist Republic. The coup-plotters were subsequently arrested and are awaiting trial. The Republicans have since threatened to launch a civil war.
If you do consider this treason well I guess that means civil war. And I guarantee you that we will war.


It is uncertain where Dankuk will lead after this but foreign nations, such as Cildania are rushing to defend Dankuk from this new menace.

Prime Minister Prince Tae Kyo Retires
OOC:Article backdated to March 1, 4390

Image
Prince Tae Kyo Official Portrait

Long serving Honourable Yeonguijeong Prince Yeong Tae Kyo has announced his retirement at age of 90. His successor is the Younger 48 year old Madame Hwangje Mi-na who is great granddaughter of the late Minister of Defense Hwangje Pung-Woon.

Image
Madame Hwangje Mi-na, New Yeonguijeong

Prince Tae Kyo was born in year 4300 to Taeyang the Great and lived his early years in Palace at Sinsudo(then Iglesia Mayor). He grew up being privately tutored by court officials while his mother dealt with political affairs. At age of 18 he was recruited for work in the Nine Tail Agency and began work monitoring the Conservative party. Who at that time were opposed to Taeyang the Great. Eventually the Conservatives and National Conservatives would compromise establishing the constitutional framework that has kept the nation at peace for the last several decades. In 4332 the Claimant of the Ryeo clan, Ryeo Choesun, arrived at Wolgwangsudo Airport(then Gongmangdo) and tried to press his claim to the throne of Dankuk. The [then]Crown Princess Yeong Yoon-Jin invited Choesun to the palace to work out their differences, however tragically, Choesun died in an automobile accident. Shortly after this series of events Prince Tae Kyo was assigned to Yingdala to monitor the developing Cold War. In 4342 He got in Contact with the Junfadang and infiltrated the Yingdalan military under the assumed name "Sun Qi" and met many Yingdalan elite, and rumored to have had a glass of Soju with Ryeo Seojun, son of Ryeo Choesun.

In 4348, his mother Taeyang the Great was preparing to step down so her daughter could assume the duties of Taeyang, and the National Socialist victory in Kazulian Parliament renewing hostile posture to Dankuk, he was recalled back to Dankuk. Once in Dankuk he quickly was elected Chairman of Imperial Conservative Party and began efforts to reform the government after it was found that the Nine Tail Agency was attempting to procure weaponry smuggled through Klavia. He led the prosecution of the events, along with his sister, Empress Yoon-Jin. Within a decade he was selected as Prime Minister(Yeonguijeong).

In 4369, Kazulia unilaterally declared war on Dankuk and invaded Reunni and Eljang and causing much destruction in their Path. During this Time, Prime Minister rallied the country and enlisted the help of International allies to pressure Kazulia, and together with such greats like General Wu Longzi "the Dragonmaster" and General Park developed a Baduk strategy to defeat the stronger Kazulians, waging a guerrilla campaign that eventually drove the invaders out of Dankuk by 4375.

Image
Wu the Dragonmaster

The war brought much destruction and it was discovered that Kazulian forces had attempted to Kazulianize the territories, and imprisoned many Kyo and Draddwyr in Concentration Camps. Prince Tae Kyo immediately began efforts to rebuild the country, and rebuilt many cultural artifacts that had been damaged by war, such as the Wolgwangpyeonghwa Palace(Formerly Beonyeongsalm Palace). In the years Following the War, Prince Tae Kyo authorized many Diplomatic overtures to other nations and personally negotiated Greater Dovani Co-prosperity Sphere with Hulstria Gso-Soto and Sekowo to contain National Socialist Kazulian threat. Unfortunately bad leadership by Belligerent Minister of Foreign Affairs, Alex Stabler of Democratic Nationalists, impaired Dankuk's Diplomacy and caused much trouble. Finally, as he was continuing to age he decided to retire in 4390 leaving to study the works of Jienists in the mountains of Myeoggi. When asked what his greatest accomplishment was he stated only the following

Keeping the idea of Dankuk Alive and definitively Eastern in face of the Barbarians. It was not easy to keep the Empire alive with so many enemies on the borders and presiding over the back to back crises was most difficult. It is satisfying that the Empire has survived a hundred years. My hope is that my successors can accomplish the same task much better than I could as there certainly were things that could've been handled better. The Yeonguijeong should govern according to the legitimacies of Heaven and Earth, practicing rightness, and respecting the sacred. R
Honouring the Sin/Kami and maintaining the Imperial Dignity is the Duty-essence of a good Yeonguijeong.

Republican Party Being Sued Over Tornado
Today a bill was proposed in Imperial Senate to levy a lawsuit against the Republican Party by the Imperial Tradition Party. This lawsuit alleges that the Republican Party are responsible for the tornado that stuck Jiangdao last year. The following was the statement they released:
Dear Justice System,

The Republican Party is evil and out to destroy the country so we need to levy a lawsuit for negligence. I believe they are responsible for the vicious attack of the recent tornado that attacked our helpless nation! Their officials didn't even bother to ready the Anti-Tornado Artillery to fight the menace. Therefore I demand reparations to victims of the tornado.

Signed
June Sung
Senator from Wolgwangsudo, Eljang province


The Republican Party has released its own statement to these claims:
This lawsuit is idiotic. What happened was a natural disaster struck Dankuk. It is no ones fault. Also there is no such thing as “Anti-Tornado Artillery”. That is not a thing that exists. Maybe your party should focus on assisting those affected by the storm rather than seek out idiotic lawsuits for no good reason

Dankuk Legalizes Usage of Land Mines
Today the Imperial Senate has passed a bill allowing the usage of land mines. This usage of land mines however is regulated and every landmine must be capable of being remotely detonated. These “smart mines” are designed to detonate after a conflict has ended. Although many still oppose the usage of land mines the ministry of defense has released the following statement:
With this bills passing we can defend our southern border regions from any Kazulian aggression. Although we continue to wish for peace we must always prepare for the worst case scenario against any nation. Including nations we are at peace with and have friendly ties

Party Secretary Vists Lourenne
Image
Bonifaco Manuelo Limcuando speaking to millions over the air
Today Party Secretary, Bonifaco Manuelo Limcuando,travelled to the Republic of Lourenne and met with several important men including the Minister of Defense for Lourenne, Josef-Henry De Lisle, and Minister of Foreign Affairs for Lourenne, Madeline LaCroix. He then went to the capital of Lourenne, Eroncourt and gave a speech on national television in part due to government requests. He proclaimed the following:
People of Lourenne I encourage you too look upon Dankuk more often than I’m sure many of you do. Many of you forget we exist and when you do remember, you remember it as a aggressive nation. Although I am not denying that Dankuk has historically been aggressive,we are so much more than that. We are a place of learning and culture. However I believe that we are being held down from joining with other nations in Dovani and becoming great,such as Lourenne and Kazulia. It is due to our government. Our government is a monarchy built upon “the will of god”. Well I believe that god did not choose the empress. I don’t believe he did anything with Dankuk. I believe they lie about there “god wills it” claim and instead have been using it to remain in power. I think it is time we remove the dictator of Yoon Jin and instead push for a republic. A place governed by the people. However there is one issue with this. Yoon Jin has the military and police in her pocket. They’ve already arrested many members of our party for “treason”. There is nothing treasonous about wishing for self rule. It is tyranny in Dankuk and the people suffer. Not only that but the people who haven’t been arrested or killed by police in our party have been harassed and threatened with arrest or death. I ask the people of Lourenne to help us in our time if need and assist the Republican Party in making the land of Dankuk glorious and Republican again! God bless Lourenne and god bless you!

Even though he required the use of a translator the people in the audience were moved to tears,anger or both. He was then met with a wave of cheers and applause. He has stated he will remain in Lourenne to continue talking to the Lourenne government.

Image
Picture of Private Contractors in there equipment
Today the Republican Party Board of Defense of the People have announced it will employ several private military contractors. These contractors have been tasked with three things according to the Board of Defense of the People:
1)Defend members of the Republican Party and the People’s Socialist Party,an ally of the Republican Party.
2)Defend the Interests of the Republican Party
3)Fight against any unauthorized arrests or corrupt arrests
This has sparked multiple reactions within Dankuk
The Conservative Party has stated that this:
This hiring of private defense contractors is a paramilitary which the Inperial Senate Denied the Republican Party to form. This breaks the law and we will arrest all who participate with the Republican Party


However the Republican Party has stated that:
This purchasing of military contractors is necessary and does not require approval from the government. Any attempt to arrest our members illegally will be stopped by our private soldiers

It has been a Turbulent past 3 years, but today we are glad to announce that the crisis is over as Coup plotters associated with the Gonggeugdang were exiled by Empress Yoon-Jin for treason. Shortly, afterwards the Gonggeugdang itself disbanded. In the subsequent days the Imperial-Conservative Coalition proceeded to re-establish the Lese Majeste Law formally declaring the Head of State an apolitical office and defining assault against the Empress and her family as assaults against Dankuk. A new Cabinet was also formed with The Conservatives' Melanie Park becoming the new Yeonguijeong replacing Hwangje Min-ah. Immediately the new cabinet has begun a plan to reinvigorate Dankuk's Diplomatic edge.

Sketch of a cathedral design proposed

In a surprise move the Imperial Tradition Party has announced plans to build a Hosian cathedral dedicated to Hananim in Sinsudo and has asked the nation to give thanks for the defeat of the coup. In addition many Temples are to be built in Taeyangsudo, Sudowon, Seongtaek and other cities throughout the Empire. It has also been revealed that this initiative is due to the fact that a member of the Royal Family is of the Hosian Faith, but it is at this time a state secret who is the member in question.

Also ongoing are plans to begin construction on the project to celebrate the Imperial Centennial. It is uncertain what will be featured during the festivities but it is expected it will be attended by many Foreign Dignitaries, particularly Sekowo.

Elizabeth Kong greeted by a Daenist attendee

The Imperial Palace has awarded the title "Lady Protector of the throne" upon former Prime Minister Elizabeth Kong, for her great service through the decades to the Empire. Elizabeth Kong has been a close aide to the Empress through the years and first entered politics as Taeyang the Great was gradually relinquishing power to her daughter Empress Yoon-Jin, and Lady Kong served as Yeonguijeong 4344 to 4363. She led major efforts to root out corruption and improve quality of life of the citizenry and reigning in rouge members of the bureaucracy. Lady Kong would later enter service of Empress Yoon-Jin as her Personal Aide and continues in that post to this day.
She has also been granted entry into the esteemed Order of Chrysanthemum for her years of dedicated service.

Dankuk invests in Geothermal Energy
October 11, 4395 Taeyangsudo, Myeoggi

Dankuk has launched a new initiative to build up Dankuk's energy sector by investing in Geothermal energy.

According to Trade Ministry, the country is increasing its investment into Geothermal by at least 5 Billion DRA and plans to raise renewed energy portfolio by 5% by the 45th century.

One Company in Particular-The Taeyang Electric Power Company founded by Hwangje Jun-So, is cashing in on the opportunity and has unveiled plans of Geothermal cars, ships, trains etc. The CEO of the company had this to say on the matter:
The geothermal power industry is entering a new era of growth with the push toward clean, reliable energy sources and game-changing technologies that may allow for the extraction of important minerals. Today we will capture the citizens of Dankuk, Tomorrow,
The world!


Officials said regions in Eljang were found to have the optimal conditions for generating geothermal electricity, with some reaching 180 degrees Celsius at a depth of three li.

Recently, The Imperial Senate has voted 187 yea to 68 nay in favor of regulating foreign investments in National Companies. From now on Foreign Multinationals will have to obtain written permission from the either the Office of the Yeonguijeong and/or the Foreign Ministry. This move is seen as a necessary measure to improve Security of the Empire.

Scientists discover ancient "Supervolcano"
December 25, 4395 Seongtaek, Hyonggi

Image
Scientific Team led By Dr. Lee

Dankuk is certainly home to many beautiful natural features, one has alarmed residents of Hyonggi more than usual and that is presence of what scientists call a Supervolcano which is defined as a volcano that erupts more than 1000 cubic li and is level 7 on Volcano explosivity index. Jungang Mountain which is one of the most picturesque mountains in the world is also a dormant Volcano and has erupted millenia ago in the past. Some in the country believe the volcano could pose a threat if it ever erupted, though it is unlikely the volcano will erupt anytime soon.

Others, in some odd train of thought, think its explosivity can be used for defense purposes. In his landmark paper, eccentric scientist Dr. Lee Yeon outlined possibility of using well placed explosives, hydraulic fracturing, and a massive Pressure Engine(OOC:Sterling Engine) to produce an eruption in the volcano. Most accredited Scientists dismiss idea citing that "Volcano has to be primed first before making it ready to fire and that's not even accounting for the amount of energy to make it 'go boom', and the destruction to our own homeland notwithstanding. This is taking Scorched Earth a bit far. He is clearly Mad."

However, despite the criticism, 'Mad' Dr. Lee is determined to realize his dream of "enlisting the sacred volcano in the Imperial Army" and is working to solve the problem of how to set the volcano off and has built an independent research facility on the side of volcano to study it in person. General Park of Imperial Armed Forces, has no desires of entertaining such ideas of "blowing up our natural and sacred scenery" and says its better to ask Taeyang the Great to set it off if needed as she's a kami and "has the appropriate authorization to look into such matters".

100 Years Since the Start of a New Era for Dankuk

Today the empress addressed her citizens and the world on a remarkable day for our country

[quote][/quote]
Dear Citizens of Dankuk,

This year we celebrate 100 years of the since the new dynasty of Dankuk. The new dynasty marked a start of an era of hope and joy after removing the tyrant.

My mother shaped Dankuk in many ways and I hope I have managed to the same

This is a time to celebrate the achievements of Dankuk in all its glory. Many foreign countries such as Sekowo have been invited to these celebrations as without them we would not be in such a great place as we are now

As well as this, I will be offering residents to families involved in the success of freeing Dankuk for their bravery

I hope you enjoy these celebrations and take time to remember those who got us to this position

Long live Dankuk!

Yoon Jin
Empress of Dankuk

We hope to see the good time continue for as long as possible

The Grand Imperial Union of Dankuk(alernatively Dankuk Daejeguk, Great Empire of Dankuk) was established by Empress' mother in 4297 after 7 years of tyranny under God-Emperor Hong Seon-Ki. Her Imperial Majesty Empress Yoon-Jin was born in 4305 and began her reign in 4350.

Tens of thousands, including dignitaries and extended family from Sekowo, came to pay respect and get a rare chance to see the Empress. Supporters wore yellow representing the light of the Sun Kami, from whom the Empresses are said to be matrilineally descended. The Empress' power is limited by Lese Majeste Law to being a symbolic figurehead, but commanding much respect and reverence of the Empire and above slander and derisive commentary.

Grand Cathedral of Hananim completed in Dankuk

April 19, 4403

Interior of the New Cathedral

After several years of Construction, the Imperial Government is proud to announce that the Grand Cathedral of Hananim is finished and will be ready for service soon and will open its doors on Easter Sunday.

The Project has been an ambitious one, taking up sizable portions of the Budget as the Cathedral has been furnished with the Finest Accoutrement, with Gold from places as far away as Luthori itself.

Image
Sunlight attending the Cathedral

The decision by the government to build the Cathedral is a strange one, considering the religion of most of the Royal Family has traditionally been Sindo(Empress Yoon-Jin being head of Dankukin Branch of Sindo by virtue of descent from Sun Kami), this move has come as a surprise to many Sindo, and Hosian practitioners.

It has long been rumored that one of the royals is secretly a Hosian, the identity of whom is a closely guarded secret privy only to upper echelons of the State, and is rumored that this is part of reason for the greenlighting of a Hosian Cathedral by a Predominantly Sindo state apparatus.

Image
Kunihito Priest praying

Others suspect this is part of a "pro-foreigner" public relations campaign and some Sindo practitioners express suspicion about promoting a "Migaeham-in"(Foreign Barbarian) religion, and prefer it be heavily regulated on suspicion of espionage by certain foreign states.

Nevertheless, there doesn't seem to be too much of Doctrinal Conflict at the moment as both Hosians and Sindo emphasize that Cleanliness is Godliness, and Kami of Sindo are defined as "any being whatsoever which possesses some eminent quality out of the ordinary, and is awe-inspiring, is called kami." However, Priests from both religions caution against "mixing medicine".
