United Dominions present. Independence and Freedom, yo!
Nan Song here as ever.
There is no war in Venezia
God bless Bartica. The genocide will commence in ten minutes.
Am I Naples? I think I'm Naples. Well, I'm here, anyway.
Obregon stands ready. March, Yellowhats!
Really, all this NES comes down to is two things:
Sorting out the finer details of a few countries and stats. I would appreciate input on both. Check the chat if you have something to say. I'm welcome to anything.
The UPCA, the strongest state on Earth, is reconfirmed.
I don't even know if I signed up, but if I did, my body is ready.
Denmark-Norway here. Yeah, that's what I was, right?
Bringing this up. Is Milarqui still around? Cause if not I may drop Aragon as well.
Korea is here.
Minor suggestion; rather than use the Anglo-French word Parliament for the Burgundian assembly, I'd put forward Bourgsrad as a more interesting in-universe term.
Reconfirming though I need to reread all the stuff here.
Guanshiyin - A sect begun by a Buddhist monk, Jie Ping, who in 1878 entered into a divine marriage with Guanyin, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. The core belief of this sect center around this idea, and that Guanyin is the source of all good and that humans, through Guanyin, can tap into her power to heal. The Guanshiyin have become famous for their doctors and their adherents to a strict brand of pacifism. The sect is based in Nanjing. The Empress Ju's personal physical is a Guanshiyin.
Śubhakarasiṃhaya - A sect begun by Li Min, the beautiful daughter of a prominent aristocrat, who claimed to have communicated in dreams with Śubhakarasiṃh. Śubhakarasiṃh is said to have inveighed against the sinfulness of the current times and the errors and accretions present in Buddhism. Śubhakarasiṃh preached to Li Min that there was only One God, and that the Buddha, and himself, among others were all but manifestations of that single whole. In subsequent communications, he identified Li Min as the world's current Manifestation of God and said that she should go out among the people and convert them. Li Min took to this with gusto and built for herself a large following in the 1820s. It is said that the Zhengde Emperor was smitten with Li Min and that the sects good relations with the government stem from this. The Śubhakarasiṃh are said to have a hundred thousand or more members drawn from primarily, but not exclusively, from the wealthy and aristocratic of society. In recent years, the government has taken notice of the group and began to more actively monitor its activities.
Hei Ubgen - A sect that grew out of Mongols who chose to break decisively with Tibetan Buddhism. The Hei Ubgen have over time grown more and more divorced from their original mission and are something of a new religion themselves. Worshiping Ubgen as the Father of the World, Lord of War, Bringer of the Storms, and a slew of other militant aspects, Hei Ubgen is popular in the army. Among the detractors of the faith, Ubgen is said to be a demon whose worshipers sacrifice children at his altars and practice ritual cannabalism. Christians have tended to dismiss the latter part as a canard aimed at them. But there is something to be said of the idea since the Priests of Ubgen wear skulls around their neck. The Emperor is known to have some considerable time for the adepts of Ubgen and favors having his followers as bodyguards.
