The Market is a nationally-published daily economic newspaper centred in Tian'an. While the paper remains generally non-partisan, critics have observed a tendency for the paper to publish articles which generally support classically liberal economic policies and the established economic order of Indrala.

Fly Indrala begins pre-booking flights to citizens and Valruzian tourists for the upcoming 4380 Olympics

TIAN'AN, Han Province: In preparation for the Summer Olympics of 4380, which are being held in Nowogard, in Valruzia, Fly Indrala, a subsidiary of the Fang Corporation, has began allowing both native citizens and Valruzian tourists to begin pre-booking flights to each's respective country. When asked why the company was allowing Valruzians alongside native Indralans to book flights for the 4380 Olympics, a spokesperson stated that "Each nation is aflutter with tourism and the hubbub of sports fans. Indralans want to see their home athletes compete in Valruzia, and Valruzians would like to see the rich culture and history our great country has to offer." Fly Indrala has released reports that over approximately 350,000 Indralans have already pre-booked flights to the Valruzian capital, with tickets quickly selling out not just in Tian'an International Airport, but other Fly Indrala airports across the nation. Fang Wei stated that the strategic placement of his private airports was to allow a tourism boom to occur in each of Indrala's cultural centers, such as Jiaozhi, with its rich amount of KITE Universities, long-regarded as the best schools in the country, and Tian'an, with its bustling nightlife and vivid scenery. "We welcome all who come to this great nation of ours to get out there and explore. The same goes to citizens who travel abroad in Valruzia for the games. With the large traffic for pre-booked flights, this is sure to be a huge boost for Indrala's economy as well as my company."

Grand Assembly fights over bestiality legalization, omnibus restictions
3 October 4376

Lotus Party Internal Affairs Critic Chatchai Sarikulya, who accused the Communists and Civic Forum of being a "wing of animal rapists"

TIAN'AN, Han: Tensions are high in the Grand Assembly as legislators debate two different bills. The first being the Civic Forum's "Family Freedoms Act" which proposes restrictions on marriages that occur overseas, as well as legalizing bestiality so long as "it causes no harm to the animal concerned."

The Lotus Party lead the charge against the legislation, which is now projected to fail, asking the Civic Forum where their priorities lie.

"While the government is working to break the tide of authoritarianism and make changes that improve the lives of Indralans, the party in opposition has decided to legalize sex with animals," Lotus Party Internal Affairs Critic Chatchai Sarikulya said in debate, "Rather than trying to get out of the "business of the bedroom" this bill wants to... move sexual activity from the "bedroom" to the barnyard."

The Communists defended the decision to permit human-animal coitus with a simple statement from the Party's Yang Xuan, who said "[they] will oppose any bills supported by Lotus Party. And this is a bill for more freedom. So [they] support it."

This response prompted Chatchai to fire back, stating that "There are two wings forming in Indralan politics; the wing of reason and the wing of animal rapists. With this legislation, it is clear where the Civic Forum and Communist Party stand."

The Communists responded to claim that the Lotus Party was showing its disdain for Indralan democracy and threaten armed civil rebellion should the bill fail.

The second contentious policy debate occured around the Lotus Party's LP-131, or "An Act to Restrict Omnibus Legislation". This legislation, while gaining a majority of support from legislators, is expected to fail as it requires 2/3 support. With the current makeup of the Grand Assembly, that would require unanimous support.

The new and more radical Civic Forum and Communist Parties were the first to announce their disagreement with the bill, followed by the equally young Freedom Party. Civic Forum Leader Jiang Zongren declared that this legislation meant that Indrala is "officially returning to a dictatorship."

In response, the Lotus Party's Chatchai claimed that the bill was put forward to protect Indralan democracy from "extremist parties," clearly targeting the Communist Party in his comments.

The rise in authoritarian and extremist messages from the radical opposition parties has concerned a number of Indralan academics. Yi Zetien, Associate Professor of political science at Indrala University wrote that "Indralan democracy is at greater threat with the Civic Forum and the Communist Party than at any point since the Pua Dictatorship ended in 4258."

The Gongming Ribao International Version has been a long-established newspaper for moderate republicans in Indrala. Lately, the newspaper has been observed to be getting closer with the new political organisation Civic Forum, becoming a de facto tool for party propaganda.

BREAKING: 4376 Election Results

The Snap Election of 4376 has finally been concluded, with all votes counted. The results are as follow:
Image

With a second-to-last finish once again, Jiang Zongren apologised to his supporters during election night, yet does not announce any plans of changing leadership. Despite another disappointing results in the Civic Forum, the reformists and extremists have seemed to be appeased by the Party's decision to push for the Family Freedoms Act, a landmark legislation that calls for the legalisation of beastiality. According to sources from the inner circles of the party, Jiang was in fact reluctant to even support the legislation, even once refusing to speak for the controversial bill on the behalf of the party. Yet this has seemed to pay off as the reformists in the party has not issued any sort of warning or criticism towards Jiang. This party may, at last, be saved by compromise.

On the general results of the election, Jiang stated that the government's retainment of a majority in the Assembly shows that the anti-establishment and republican parties must work harder to attract the support of voters across the nation. It seems, that the 'Centrist' label put on in the last few years has been peeled off, revealing the anti-establishment nature of the party, as a free market alternative of the Communist Party.

Gao Yifen leads governing coalition to victory
This election also marks the first time a Lotus Party candidate has been elected Head of Government since 4335

Chief Counselor-elect Gao Yifen en route to the Grand Assembly

HAZHOU, Shu Province: Last night Gao Yifen led his party, and the majority governing coalition to a strong re-election. Gao said his majority coalition government is proof that “positive, optimistic” politics are not just a “naive dream.”

"Tonight, Indralans warned politicians that division and radicalism are not the path to a stronger country," Gao said, "only when people come together can we build a brighter tomorrow!"

The New Dawn-Social Democratic-Lotus governing coalition captured 52.09% of the popular vote, an increase from the 4373 election when the coalition was elected as a minority government with 43.42% of the vote. The Lotus Party gained the most seats during the night, becoming the largest party in the coalition. Thus, Gao is expected to replace his Social Democratic coalition colleague Sunada Machiko as Chief Counselor.

Much of the credit for the victory is being laid directly at Lotus Party President Sung Hyo-rin's feet. Long hailed a "kingmaker," Sung groomed Gao to run for the leadership of the party, and propelled his campaign to a stunning victory in October of 4374. When the government dissolved, Sung organized a disciplined, positive election campaign to get Indralans to vote for the Lotus Party after nearly 40 years of declining vote share. It is expected that Sung will receive a cabinet position in Gao's administration.

The republican faction of Indralan politics increased their share of the vote in the election by one percentage point, but remains firmly locked out of power. Speaking on the results, Civic Forum Leader Jiang Zongren claimed that "the anti-establishment and republican parties" must work harder to attract the support of voters. Jiang narrowly escaped a leadership challenge in 4374, winning approximately 44% of the Party Congress delegate votes. It is unknown whether Jiang's hold on power is strong enough following another second-last electoral finish. Additionally, it is yet to be determined whether or not republican politics are a viable route forward in Indrala.

Gao Yifen addressed this issue during his speech, declaring that "when my fellow legislators reject the politics of division, we are ready to work with them for our common vision of a better Indrala."

Civic Forum Re-elects Jiang Zongren

It is once again Party Congress time for the Civic Forum. Tian'an is once again flooded by orange as the thousands of Civic Forum members congregate at the nation's capital to decide on their party's future. During this Party Congress, the Leadership Election and conference on the Republican Manifesto are the two main highlights.

Image
Cover of the Republican Manifesto

First, the Republican Manifesto. Despite earlier reports saying that the radical and moderate fronts of the party has reached mutual consensus on the contents of the Manifesto, some radicals still pushed forward a hijack of the conference during the Manifesto discussion. Several radical Civic Forum members stormed the Podium of the conference, giving a rousing speech on 'True Revolution' before being pushed off the stage by guards.

However, the Manifesto, as written by the party's central committee, was passed almost unanimously among party members. Controversial topics in the manifesto include calling for the 'Confiscation of all property owned by the royal family' and the 'Criminalisation of claiming nobility'. The Manifesto also laid out a new Indralan political system under Republicanism to be of 'Separation of Five Powers', advocating the creation of five 'Yuans' to replace all branches of the central government.

Image
Jiang's slogan: A Civic Revolution

The leadership contest, on the other hand, was much less controversial. Due to Zhang Wei's announcement to not run in this contest, there was no major opposition to Jiang Zongren. Compared to the contest held after the previous election, the results were very much expected. Thus, the turnout of the contest dramatically decrease.

In this campaign, Jiang clearly tried to re-align to the radicals, as his slogan suggests a 'Revolution'. Meanwhile promises of the re-proposal of a Republican bill, despite the 0% chance of its passage, was repeated again and again during the campaign. The final results are as follow:

Image
Results of the Leadership Contest

Civic Forum is finally, yet unaffectionately, united under the banner of Jiang. However, this re-alignment may prove the first dramatic change in the party's position to begin. The centrist party may no longer be centrist any more, but instead a republican revolutionary front for radical change. The future developments of the party will certainly be exciting to watch.

Indralan Tech Mogul Su Chan found dead in apparent murder
The middle-aged tech company CEO was found dead with over 30 stab wounds, police reports conclude
7 November 4378

Image
Candid photograph of the now-deceased tech mogul, who was the CEO of a smartphone company and co-owner of a video game studio.

NATIONAL NEWS: In a stunning revelation, Su Chan, the CEO of Tiger Technologies (虎技术), a smartphone developer and manufacturer, and co-owner of Gold Sun Entertainment, a video game development studio was found dead at his home, the victim of a vicious stabbing attack. From reports publicized by the police, the 49-year old man was preparing for bed when vandals broke into his home and brutally murdered him in his bathroom, having cornered him. Su's lifeless body was found slumped backwards, having collapsed in his bathtub, with the tub "thoroughly stained with blood, along with the linoleum floor", Sergeant Wu Guangping told reporters. This murder comes days after the announcement of Fang Wei, Chairman of the Fang Corporation, proclaiming "fervent" interest in the tech industry. A noted rival of Mr. Fang, Su had allegedly been exploring the oil industry prior to Fang Wei's acquisition of Indralan National Petroleum in 4369. Su then moved to the tech industry after feeling snubbed by Mr. Fang. Sergeant Wu also stated to reporters that the style of the killing was in line with local methods of murder used by Triad syndicates in Tian'an. "We're unsure if it was the work of a Triad, but the evidence seems extremely likely. With as ruthless as Indrala's corporate scene is, I wouldn't be surprised if this would be the work of someone wanting to get rid of business rivals." When asked about the murder, Fang Wei gave a large prepared statement to reporters outside the lobby of his corporation's headquarters. A small excerpt has been included below.

While I am shocked that an old rival of mine has been murdered, let the record be clear that such slanderous rumors that I would go to such lengths to "eliminate" Mr. Su are completely unfounded. This is not the work of my company. The rivalry Mr. Su and I had was something along the lines of two sports fans. A sort of friendly competition. I had known the man since my conscripted service in the army. Sure, we had our disagreements in the business field and sometimes we grew apart due to such things, but him and I always managed to remain in contact with one another and regularly contributed in our entrepreneurial pursuits. I even gave him co-ownership of one of my father's laundromats, prior to my move to the oil industry. The short answer is, all of this badgering by reporters is completely farcical. Now if you will excuse me, I have more important matters to attend to.

National Police Agency hand over Su Chan murder case to the Supreme Prosecution Service
After collecting "acceptable evidence", the NPA has decided to hand it over to the SPS for the formation of a criminal trial.

Police arrest Fan Yeung, local nightclub owner and apparent hired assassin by the Spitting Snakes, a Triad operating in Tian'an, as disclosed by the police.

TIAN'AN, Han: After police discovered the murdered body of tech mogul Su Chan late last year and subsequently conducting over five months of exhaustive investigation, today, the National Police Agency has officially handed over the case in its entirety to the office of the Supreme Prosecution Service, after having collected "acceptable evidence" from investigations by provincial and local police. Sergeant Wu Guangping, of whom was most warm to reporters, held a statement today at the NPA's headquarters in Tian'an thanking the hard work of his subordinates and successful arrest of Fan Yeung, a local nightclub owner turned assassin. After being detained and subjected to questioning, he revealed that he had been hired by the Spitting Snakes Triad, a "fairly unknown" syndicate, at least to Sergeant Wu. Speaking on behalf of the SPS, Sergeant Wu also disclosed that Fan's testimony had given "very useful results" and that an official criminal trial would be set for June 12th of next year, a month before the Olympics in Nowogard. "The trial will be extended even further over the summer if need be. As read to me by the SPS, the long gap in time has been chosen for Mr. Fan to acquire an attorney and possibly be called in for more rounds of questioning, if it is deemed necessary. At the present moment, more questioning is currently unlikely, unless further significant information on the Su murder case is given to us, whether officially or anonymously. After I had given the SPS the file on the case, they requested that Mr. Fang Wei, of the Freedom Party and the Fang Corporation be called in as a defendant in the criminal trial. Testimony given by Mr. Fan whilst in custody has warranted such matters." The affluent entrepreneur and businessman of Tian'an origin had vehemently dismissed any involvement in the murder of Su Chan, despite the striking coincidences as reported in Taixi Times. When reached for comment, once more, Mr. Fang denied any involvement in corporate sabotage or accessory to murder Mr. Su.

Crown Prince to marry commoner sparking battle in Imperial Palace
OOC: POSTDATED 2 May 4374
Image

Image
The Crown Prince

Rumours have emerged from the Imperial Palace that His Imperial Highness, the Crown Prince has been petitioning his father to allow his marriage to a commoner, one Miss Kwan Jiang. This uncommon proposal has sparked a major crisis between palace bureaucrats, priests, servants and the Imperial Household itself. This is evidenced by the fact that this news was able to reach outside the palace walls, a notoriously secretive and taciturn institution.

His Imperial Highness has reportedly asked the common woman to marry him before speaking with any member of the Imperial Household or bureaucrat within the Imperial Household Agency. Thus, without the explicit permission of His Imperial Majesty the Emperor, the betrothal silk sent to formalize the engagement has not yet been sent to the girl's home. Due to this lack formality or recognition, many servants have taken to begging the Crown Prince to question his choice and pick another match.

One servant was so undignified in their duties, it would appear, that they leaked a recording of His Imperial Highness's own words to the media. In the recording, servants were urging the Crown Prince to select a different match when he began to laugh. He then said, "My heart is already promised to her! How could I turn my back on my earlier intentions?"

In the recording, a servant responds, "Your Highness, please reconsider. The people will not be inclined to support such a union," to which the Crown Prince said, "is it not the Emperor's role to be sincere in his duties? Thus, should I not display a similar degree of emotional sincerity and resolution?"

His Imperial Majesty the Emperor, is reportedly in favour of the union, but is having difficulty due to the stubbornness of the Imperial Palace officially to submit to the Crown Prince's determination.

IMPERIAL PALACE FIRES 1,000 SERVANTS, STAFF OVER BETROTHAL CRISIS
1 June, 4374

TIAN'AN, Han -- The Emperor has issued a decree that 1,000 servants and staff within the Imperial Palace would be fired for their lack of submission to the Emperor's edict in support of the Crown Prince's engagement to commoner Kwan Jiang. Most notably, Chief Secretary of the Imperial Household Agency Xi Huanyu has been relieved. All specified servants and staff in the edict were demanded to leave the Imperial Palace within three hours. Despite this, some 100 servants reportedly protested outside of the Hall of Harmony. Officers from the National Police Agency were required to remove some individuals from the Palace.
