Mudslide in Anle Kills At Least 28
10 April 4430
Image

A torrential rainstorm struck central Anle this afternoon, bringing flash flooding to villages throughout the province and causing mudslides in numerous mountainous areas. While most of these incidents did not bring casualties, as they occurred in unpopulated areas, a large mudslide outside of southern Tiaxi claimed the lives of at least 28 people. Emergency responders continue to be active in the region, rescuing those affected by the mudslide and treating the injured. Among the 28 killed in today’s mudslide is the family of Lü Junho, heir to the Lü Clan. Junho, his wife, and his only son Sungwoo were touring a shrine site in the area when the storm hit and they were caught in the mudslide when attempting to leave.

Additional Headlines:

Sampa Society Praises Lü Deaths

The statement declares the mudslide to have been the result of a divine intervention to reprimand traitors of the Ryeo legacy. Leaders of the cult-like organization have warned that they will continue to pray for the destruction of their enemies and bring about the dawn of a new empire.

It is about time that our nation will experience leadership that not only protects the people, but also the nature that has given us so much, We will ensure that our state remains effective and has the means to intervene when necessary while also protecting our environment so that many more generations may look with pride at the lush forests and great seas of Indrala!


Said Luo Xinya during his press conference. What the creation of this party will mean is still uncertain but it is yet another addition to the growing amount of parties in the Grand Assembly.

Lü Minho Killed in Plane Crash
18 May 4432
Image

Police are investigating the fiery plane crash that has killed Lü Minho, heir of the Lü Clan, and three others this morning south of Jugang. The small, privately owned aircraft departed from Jugang in clear weather conditions with no signs of trouble. Nonetheless, things took a sudden turn and the plane was brought down. This event is being viewed with great suspicion and it is believed to have been a deliberate act against Lü Minho. Just two years ago the Sampa Society praised the death of his nephew's family and yet again the organization has been quick to issue a statement celebrating the Lü death. The Sampa Society is without a doubt a major party of interest as investigators try to determine the cause of this crash and potentially identify those responsible.

Additional Headlines:

Yeongja Becomes Heir to Clan
For the first time in the history of the Lü Clan, including their ancestral House of Ryeo, a woman has taken the first place in line for succession to the family's leadership. The deaths of Junho and Minho have left the Lüs without a known male heir and Yeongja, the Minister of Trade & Commerce, is now positioned to take leadership over the Lü Clan. The aging Lü Jaewoo, first majorly delayed in his retirement and then faced with the deaths of two close family members, has struggled in recent years, as has the whole family.

Jiyu Resigns from Advisory Roles
The 96 year old Jiyu has announced her retirement from her advisory roles in the House of Jiyu and Zifada, citing her age and increasingly limited mobility. However, Jiyu has promised to continue to devote her remaining time to artistic pursuits and stated that she will attend as many events as possible for her two organizations.

Lü Jiyu: 4336-4433
27 April 4433
Image

Jiyu has passed away at the age of 97. Her final will has directed her daughter, Lü Ae-cha, to organize a grand funeral that celebrates art and design, featuring Jiyu’s own greatest works as well as the art of those she admired. As the family quickly moves to fulfill this wish, invitations for the funeral are also being distributed to a number of Jiyu’s friends, along with other famous figures specifically asked for by Jiyu, including the Jianxao Emperor, members of the Imperial Household, major business leaders, including Tang Sulan, among hundreds others.

The daughter of Ryeo Seojun, Jiyu was a controversial public figure with a split of adoring fans and furious haters. Her own brother among the latter, Jiyu and her family were targets of mafia violence that ultimately failed and brought about the implosion of kanpa operations in Jiaozhi. Meanwhile, Jiyu forged ahead, leading her own private company, the House of Jiyu, and, from her publicity in Zhijia City, the district of JiyuTown grew around her mansion and brought new growth and cultural development to Kaizhou. Eventually she even established a theme park centered around an abstract and absurdist view of the world, JiyuWorld in Jugang. And in her later years, Jiyu would found Zifada, the Zhijia Institute for Fashion, Artistic Design, and Architecture, the newest institution of higher education in the city. While projecting a personality of eccentricity, sometimes leading her into confrontations and abrasive encounters, Jiyu also devoted much of her energy into advancing artistic causes in Indrala and supporting educational opportunities for the nation's youth. No doubt she will remain controversial and certainly disliked among many, but many more also love the world that surrounded Jiyu and all her endeavors.

Jiyu's Last Stunt
1 May 4433
Image
Guests of Jiyu's funeral "event" were decidedly well fed.

Nearly a week following her death, family and guests gathered for Jiyu's funeral ceremony, held close to JiyuTown in Zhijia City. The funeral was attended by at least a hundred guests, including Jiyu’s direct family, the entire Lü Clan, Zifada and House of Jiyu colleagues, and a scattering of many other figures. Among those attending were also Lady Wang Feihung and, of the Imperial Household, Princess Fengmian with her husband Byeon Woo-bin. Art displays surrounded the large room, with guests browsing works of Jiyu herself as well as pieces done by her most beloved artists. As the room filled up and the top of the hour neared, Lü Ae-cha motioned for the beginning of the funeral ceremonials. Jiyu’s daughter tearfully delivered the initial speech, sharing stories of her childhood being raised by such a unique person. She thanked her mother for always providing her absolute support throughout her life and for always trying to bring happiness to others, even if it was sometimes without invitation.

Standing alongside Ae-cha, her husband Luk Kwong Yi, next began to offer a short statement about his mother-in-law. However, after only speaking a few words shock spread through the room as Jiyu rolled herself in on her wheelchair and right down the center aisle of the room, very much alive. Carrying out perhaps the greatest stunt of her lifetime, Jiyu grabbed a microphone from her dumbfounded son-in-law and proudly welcomed the crowd to her final celebration. Acknowledging her advanced age, Jiyu expressed her desire to have not a funeral but instead a party before she passes. Under the guise of an actual funeral, Jiyu managed to gather family and some of Indrala’s most notable public figures and stars.

This stunt certainly caused quite a strong mix of emotions, some were humored, others were a bit peeved. Regardless though, Jiyu's directions to her daughter in planning this funeral definitely ensured that all the guests would be treated to great food, drinks, and entertainment. And upon the shocking reveal of her non-death, Jiyu quickly moved towards keeping the "party" going, directing for more food to come out and inviting in a performance by a Yingpop band. Jiyu did express some minor disappointment as the absence of certain invited guests, specifically calling out Tang Sulan and the Emperor, but she immediately dismissed it as "their own loss," before graciously thanking everyone who did come to the ceremony. As the event continued, Jiyu spent much of her time going around the room, ensuring to meet with and personally speak to every single guest that attended.

Xiandai, Indrala Fengyu sell Baniray Copper Mine to Vanukean equity firm
Tian'an Stock Exchange dips as Xiandai Group and Indrala Fengyu sell mine at a loss
Image
Image
Baniray Copper Mine, as seen two months ago

TIAN'AN, Han Province: A project once viewed as a sign of Jelbania's emerging stability and economic growth, the Baniray Copper Mine has been sold by its Indralan proprietors to Banmek-Sntazed Holdings, a Vanukean equity firm for $260 million. The mine, which produced around $4.1 billion in profit over its operational lifespan, was all but abandoned at the outbreak of the Jelbania Civil War.

Fearing the heightened risk of operating business in Jelbania, Xiandai and Indrala Fengyu have long been looking for a way to offload their investment without incurring too much of a loss. Despite set up and operational costs of nearly $3.4 billion, the deal with Banmek-Sntazed Holdings has resulted in the project being a net profit for the two Indralan firms of nearly $960 million.

During the Jelbanian conflict the open-pit mine was damaged by a large-scale landslide resulting from an aerial bomb dropped on the surrounding hills. Thus, it is expected that Banmek-Sntazed Holdings is more interested in the leftover equipment and exploration rights than the mine itself.

Lotus Party launches Luthorian edition of website
Party spokesperson says Luthorian website will help outreach to minorities, international media
Image
Image
Screenshot of the website's homepage featuring party leader Shi Yiguang

NATIONWIDE: Today the Lotus Party launched a Luthorian-edition of its official website, citing outreach to "diverse communities" and "international media," as the main catalyst for the addition. Other than Indralan, the Lotus Party already operates Kyo and Dinh versions of the website, Indrala's two largest minority language groups.

The effort to expand the Lotus Party's outreach to minority communities is a main pillar of Shi Yiguang's leadership. In the last snap election, Shi saw her party reduced to it's lowest position ever as voter turnout remains incredibly low. Thus, the party is hoping that with greater outreach to minority communities, they can motivate more Indralan citizens to get to the polls.

After launch, the website was criticized by tech reporters for having many incomplete features, which the Party spokesperson Maria Nguyen says are "forthcoming."

Altar of Heaven (left); His Imperial Majesty the Jianxiao Emperor (right) upon his coronation

It bring the Nationalist Bulletin great sorrow to announce the ascension to Heaven of His Imperial Majesty the late Jianwen Emperor. The late Son of Heaven passed suddenly, shocking his family and our nation. A funeral ceremony will take place at the Imperial Tombs outside of Tian'an on Friday. An official mourning period will last for three years. The Jianwen era, while short, was one of peace and expanded opportunities for the self-cultivation of Indralans.

His Imperial Majesty Emperor Jianlong, Sacred Son of the late Jianwen Emperor, was enthroned in a quiet and humble affair today. Upon his coronation, the Son of Heaven proclaimed his era to be the "Jianxiao" era (literary meaning: "establishing filiality), suitable for a ruler who's life has been shaped by his profound filiality. May the Emperor live and reign for ten thousand years!

On behalf of the Imperial Household, Lady Feihung received a delegation from Vanuku including the Archduke Wrntukai and Countess Wrntumai Kez'i. Lady Feihung personally hosted the Vanukeans for dinner with a number of Indralan nobles and prominent figures at her official residence outside of Tian'an, the Yinghua Residence (provided by the Imperial Clan). His Imperial Majesty the Emperor was predisposed with state affairs, while the Queen of Vanuku was unable to accompany her relatives to Indrala on account of her ever-approaching due date.

The highlight of the dinner was a gifting ceremony, typical of Imperial Clan events. Lady Feihung went first, presenting an exquisite gold and pearl brooch on behalf of the Emperor for the Queen of Vanuku. The brooch, created on commission by goldsmith Tan Yu, resembles an oak leaf similar to those depicted on the Vanukean coat of arms.

The room was shocked, however, when the Vanukean delegation presented Lady Feihung with their gift for the Emperor. Carefully removing it from it's ornate case, the Archduke revealed the magnificent ceremonial sword of the Augustan Khagan, once owned by the Temrkai Khan. Lady Feihung was visibly shocked and also slightly ashamed to receive such an impressive and substantial gift. Immediately following the gifting, Lady Feihung called for more wine to be brought to the ballroom.

While not technically a member of the Imperial Clan, Lady Feihung has remained close to her cousin, the Emperor, whom she accompanied during the Indralan Imperial World Tour in 4395. Her inclination toward international affairs has been utilized by the Imperial Household Agency since then, with the noblewoman serving as the Clan's primary liaison with foreigners. At age 16, Lady Feihung met the former Vanukean King Juhn X shortly after his coronation.

Foreign Minister Yuri Yokomichi was also in attendance at the event. Speaking to the press this morning, Ms. Yokomichi expressed her gratitude for having been included, and also added that she had many productive conversations with her Vanukean counterparts, hinting toward a potential future meeting in Vanuku.

New Dawn Leftists Turn On Luk, Demand New Leadership
19 October 4436
Image

The more left-leaning bloc of New Dawn, historically grouped around Luk Runmei, has moved against its de facto leader, demanding that the entire political organization elect new leadership. With Luk at the helm of the party, New Dawn has not had stellar political performance and only recently, in a less competitive political field, has the party seen renewed growth in its national representation. While Luk has had strong influence on the party platform, these internal changes directed by Luk have not transferred outward. New Dawn has maintained much of its national positioning alongside the Lotus Party and Social Democratic Party, and it has held on to its defense of Indralan big business, despite toning down its most overt connections with the Lü Clan and the FangCaiRyeo Group. Now, calling for new leadership, the leftist bloc wants real change in New Dawn and a real disconnect from the intermingling of politics and corporate affairs. Furthermore, the leftists seek to embolden Luk’s secularism, taking a stand against the religious influenced policy of both the opposition and the Lotus alliance.

Leadership elections are inevitable for New Dawn and Luk has not pushed back against these demands. Luk has indicated that he will not seek to remain as the party’s leader. His former allies have rallied around Leslie Cheung as they push for a more independent, leftist and anti-corporate party of science. Cheung, a nuclear physicist, is already going strong in election polling with a clear lead over Lü Yeongja, who has not officially declared candidacy, and Chou Su, the only opponent to Cheung so far.

Jiyu left a major impact on Indrala, winning many friends and enemies throughout her various escapades and controversial ventures.

Sampa Society Attacks Green Palace
25 November 4439
Image

Coming together to remember their lost family members and to continue discussion of the family's future, the entirety of the Lü Clan had gathered at the Green Palace earlier this evening. Very much a private affair, the Green Palace did not appear any different from most days, other than visitors being restricted from entry into the rear portions of the palace. It was in that rear area, which runs along the ocean coast, that the family had assembled.

Unfortunately, the family gathering would be cut short in the early evening as the Green Palace found itself under attack from masked assassins that had infiltrated various areas of the palace. As the assassins converged on the location of the Lü Clan’s members, guards intercepted managed to intercept most of them, eliminating the threat against the family. However, the closest of these assassins, upon being hit by Xia Hsiao-yen after grabbing Lü Yeongja, pulled Xia with him off the cliffside. The 97 year old Lü Jaewoo, who appeared to be the main target of the assassins, suffered a minor stab wound.

Early reports indicate that the palace received a warning earlier in the day about a potential attack but it had been largely dismissed as a hoax. In the hours leading up to the attack, someone continued to persist in calling the palace about a threat against the Lü Clan and a report was filed with Jugang Police to source the calls. With the final call, coming only minutes before the assassins launched their attack, the answering guard happened to notice suspicious movement outside. This is believed to have ultimately led to an almost simultaneous launching of guard and assassin action. Five assassins were located inside the Green Palace and were among the first captured or killed by guards. A smaller number, believed to be no more than four, were outside the main area, along the coastline and throughout the gardens, closest to the Lü Clan members.

The Green Palace has been indefinitely closed to all visitors and the Lü Clan has already relocated to an alternative location while police continue their investigation of this assassination attempt on the family and the murder of Xia Hsaio-yen.
