Son of Heaven provides on-the-spot archery guidance to National Olympic Team, Prince Jianlong

For many in Indrala, Heaven is high and the Emperor is far, far away. Yesterday, however, four Indralan olympians had the unique blessing to get closer to both, receiving guidance and instruction in the Way of Archery directly from His Imperial Majesty, the Son of Heaven. The Tianshun Emperor, who spoke to the olympians without the usual silk screen dividing his divine face from the gaze of the commoner, encouraged the olympians to apply themselves to their sport.

Archery is one of Indrala's two official national sports, however Indralan athletes returned home from the 4280 Summer Olympics in shame, having not placed in any of the archery competitions. His Imperial Majesty, who is known for his skill in and partiality for the Way of Archery, surely desires a greater result in the 4300 Summer Olympics.

Speaking at a press conference today, the four olympians expressed their profound gratitude for having been bestowed such an audience with the Son of Heaven. With tears in their eyes, each olympian promised to work harder to deliver a gold medal for Indrala. "When I left the Imperial Palace, I couldn't stop weeping," said 19-year-old archery protege Liu Qianlong, "who am I to have received such a great gift?"

Among the individuals receiving instruction was the Emperor's grandson, Prince Jianlong, 16. Sources say that the Emperor is very fond of his eldest grandchild, spending time with him frequently and instructing him personally in the Jienist Classics, among other things. The young prince is said to have a strong aptitude for athletic activities, such as horseback riding, martial arts, archery, swordsmanship and cuju, much like his Holy Grandfather during his youth. His Imperial Majesty's filial love for his grandson was demonstrated most clearly by the gifting of his most prized horse to Prince Jianlong early this spring.

Yi Clan scion joins Armed Forces following mandatory National Service

Yi Liancheng, the twenty-one year old scion of the Yi Clan has announced that he will be joining the Armed Forces following the end of his mandatory two years of national service. The young noble began his compulsory training at age 19. Yi is the only son among six siblings and thus he will become the patriarch of the Yi Clan and inherit the vast Yi fortune upon the death of his noble father, Lord Yi Kaichung.

Speaking to reporters outside of his army base, Yi said that he is willing to sacrifice his "body and soul" in serving the Tianshun Emperor, as well as "performing [his] duties alongside [his] brothers for the security of the people." The Yi Clan has been openly dismissive toward the civilian management of the Ministry of Defence, and the decline of Indrala's military strength. Yi Kaichung has called for a greater role for the Emperor in the management of the Armed Forces.

"How is it that the father of Indrala cannot play a role in the protection of his children?" asked Lord Yi during an interview in 4288, "we should not cripple the capabilities of the Son of Heaven. We cannot claim to be a Jienist nation when we reject basic xiao."

Exhibition of Lady Feihung's paintings held at Xinyi Women's University

Lady Feihung's colourful ink-and-brush landscape paintings have attracted the attention of Indrala's artistic community, including XWU's Faculty of Fine Arts which will be hosting an exhibition of her work from May 30th-June 25th. The fifteen-year-old noblewoman is the only child of Viscount Rear Admiral Wang Xiaofu (68) and Princess Jieyou (50).

Lady Feihung was inspired to begin painting landscapes following a tour of Southern Indrala with her uncle, Prince Wanjun, along with her brothers Prince Jianlong and Prince Jianhao. In a written artistic statement from Lady Feihung to the exhibition, she writes that "the emotional landscapes of our Southern provinces puzzle [her]; a riddle written by Heaven and the Gods, unravelled by our ancestors and yet never solved. A mysterious land of jade mountains reaching for the sky, low rivers and colourful fields. Images which have not yet faded from [her] mind; lest they ever do."

Unlike her Sun Clan matrilineal relatives who tend to apply themselves at athletic and intellectual pursuits, Lady Feihung reportedly practices the performing and visual arts from dusk til dawn. With no son to continue his family line, the progressive Viscount Wang has encouraged and patronized his daughter's creative talents to a great extent. Last spring, the Viscount built a traditional Guidao garden at his Shencheng mansion to serve as a creative space for Lady Feihung.

It is expected that Lady Feihung will attend Kyung-hee Imperial College after she takes her ISAT examination next year.

Chen Calls for Elections

Image

The Republican camp now enters dangerous waters as the Republican League leader Chen Tianwei has ordered party members to abstain over the Republican Bill proposed by the National Renewal party. Instead, Chen has called for snap election and is organizing a party walkout of the cabinet, leaving the government half empty.

In a press conference, Chen declared that 'the Republican League respects the people and wants a referendum on building the republic.' He demanded new elections to be held to show the clear opinion of the people and fill the vacant seats of the Republican League. The leader has seemed to gamble his political future on this new election, as Jiang Zongren has begun to re-organize despite his high age.

Inside the League, some are already demanding Chen's departure following electoral defeat and close alignment with National Renewal. A failed referendum may very well spell the end for Chen, yet a victory will consolidate his power for the years to come. And with Chen's smile, he is as confident as he can be.

Imperial Household Agency reportedly planning major world tour

Prince Jianlong, 16.

According to sources within the Heavenly City bureaucracy, planning is currently underway for members of the Imperial Household to engage in a globe-spanning tour. The travelling party will reportedly include the Princes Jianlong and Jianhao as well as Princess Fengmian (all grandchildren of the Tianshun Emperor). Also participating will be the Lieutenant Yi Liancheng, scion of the Yi Clan, who has been providing martial instruction to Prince Jianlong upon the request of His Imperial Majesty.

Image
Expected tour route, to be undertaken next year.

The last major royal tour was undertaken by Prince Kai of the Majatran continent in the year 4349. This trip is expected to be much larger in scale, reflecting Indrala's emergence in the international community.

Construction completed on mausoleum for Tianshun Emperor

The Tianshun Emperor's Mausoleum.

For millions of Indralans it is unthinkable. Yet, as the drum of time continues to beat on, our beloved Son of Heaven advances in age. There have also been murmurings from sources among the servants of the Heavenly City that His Imperial Majesty is in ill health. Thus, I dare say that we must prepare for the collapse of the Imperial Chariot.

The Imperial Household has been preparing well in-advance of this awful and traumatic reality. For the past five years, construction has been undertaken on a mausoleum for the Tianshun Emperor on the western shores of Lake Huzheng, Jiaozhi Province. This is a location much beloved by His Imperial Majesty and his family. The shrine surrounding the tomb is approximately 10,000 square meters in size and is made entirely of Anle granite. A truly stunning work for a truly beautiful and blessed man.

His Imperial Highness the Crown Prince is by all accounts practicing perfect filiality, paying attention to his Heavenly Father's needs at present. The sincerity of the Indralan people, along with his Sacred Son may recover His Imperial Majesty.

Indrala's ICT exports continue to rise year over year
1 September 4383

KAIZHOU, Jiaozhi Province: Indrala's exports of information and communication technology (ICT) products continue to post high year over year growth, led by upbeat sales of semiconductors, computers and other handheld consumer electronics, government data showed Wednesday.

Analysts say that strong demand for Indralan memory chips and computers propelled growth to largely offset sluggish sales of electronic displays.

Exports of semiconductors made by Indralan tech giants like TQ Electronics Co. jumped 37.9 percent on-year, and those of memory chips, such as multi-chip packages (MCPs) and dynamic random-access memory (DRAM), soared 45.9 percent. Sales of displays declined 10.2 percent on-year due to slowing domestic and international demand in organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), as well as increased foreign competition in liquid crystal displays (LCDs).

Combined overseas and domestic sales of mobile handsets and parts declined significantly, but nonetheless sustained growth at 3.7 percent year over year. Desktop and portable computers experienced a similar trend, growing at 3.2 percent year over year.

Overall, Indrala's ICT sector remains highly dynamic, strong and competitive, buoyed by giants like the FangCaiRyeo Group's Prospero, TQ Group's TQ Electronics Co., among many others. Despite the fierce competition, Kazulian mega-firm Korsmo Telekom has announced an upcoming entry into Indrala's massive electronics sector, indicating strong investor confidence.

Dr. Cheng Ah wins election for SDP Party Leadership
In a contentious election, Dr. Cheng has won the leadership with 53.4% of the vote

Cheng leaving SDP headquarters in Tian'an

TIAN'AN, Han Province: After back to back electoral failures of the Social Democrats forced former SDP leader Sunada Machiko to announce her resignation from the position of Party Leader late last year, a huge campaign began over what candidate would take the Social Democrats into the future, and after months, an answer has arrived.

The victor, Dr. Cheng Ah, has long been a member of the SDP's establishment, and once served as Indrala's Minister of Finance. However, despite his popularity among party leaders, he failed to win the support that many had hoped would help to unite the party, only holding a six percentage lead to his main opponent: Ye Jia, a left-wing populist. The two gained 53.4 and 47.1 percent of the electorate respectively.

Almost immediately after his victory was announced, Dr. Cheng spoke to those gathered in SDP headquarters. "I promise to lead our party into a prosperous future, while still keeping our values and beliefs close," said Cheng, "Together, We must stand strong. We must stand for Indrala."

He later gave a few words to reporters on recent republican victories. "I must say I'm deeply disappointed at how much the republican factions of Indrala have gained. The monarchy is a symbol of Indrala itself, and must be protected, " he said, "as of now, all I've seen from republicans is violence and extremism."

Even with this change in Party Leadership, Ms. Sunada Machiko is still expected to continue to have a large influence over party politics. It is rumoured that she has accepted a role as the party's new Foreign Affairs Critic, with the former position holder, Wei Hua, having retired.

Sunada speaks with reporters about the Republican League's position on foreign affairs

KAIZHOU, Jiaozhi Province: Following the recent announcement of a globe spanning tour of good will by the imperial household, and key government members, the Republican League Chairperson, Chen Tianwei, slammed the idea. In a National Assembly session Chen called the idea "a waste of money, time, and effort."

Speaking to media, Sunada expanded on the denouncement she had given during the session.

"These republicans are ridiculous and dangerous," said Ms. Sunada, "they are seeking to drive us apart from the world, at a time when should be pulling ever closer. In my opinion Chen doesn't deserve to be the Minister of Foreign Affairs. If we follow his model there won't be any foreign affairs."

She also has offered for the Social Democratic, Lotus, and New Dawn parties to take the places of any republican ministers who refuse to travel with the imperial household.

New Cabinet Formed Without Chen Tianwei

Image
Tang Zijing, new Chief Counselor

With the new cabinet sworn in, one oddity has been observed throughout Indralan politics, that Chen Tianwei is not present in the ministries. Instead of Chen, Tang Zijing, founder of the former 'Republican Reform' pressure group, became the nation's Chief Counsellor. While Chen told the media that he 'refuses to be the leader of a monarchical and anti-Jienist nation', some has speculated that a coup has happened within the League.

The Republican League has also rolled out a number of new bills following the fomation of the Republican-Communist Coalition. However, one weird pattern had been seen with Chen spearheading the 4395 Budget and the National Security and Stability Preservation Act, while other less controversial bills are headed by ministers of the government. On this topic, Chief Counselor Tang Zijing did not respond and instead said that 'Chen Tianwei remains the leader of the Republican League and will remain so for the years to come'. With a Republican era incoming, the League will have to set aside its internal differences and actively promote Republicanism as the largest political force of Indrala.

IMPERIAL HOUSEHOLD AGENCY CANCELS STOP IN LUTHORI DURING IMPERIAL WORLD TOUR
20 August, 4395

NATIONWIDE NEWS: Citing "ethnocentrism," and "religious bigotry," the Chief Secretary of the Imperial Household Agency Li Yan has announced that the Imperial World Tour stopover in Luthori has been cancelled. Speaking to reporters from Luxon, Kalistan, Li revealed that the Grand Vizier Tarion of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Luthori wrote to Li, declaring that "this trip to [Luthori] is impossible," so long as "as the Princes of [Indrala] are to bear the title "Son of Heaven." The title, which has great historical and religious importance to Indralans, is "non-negotiable," and "legitimate" according to Li.
