    :/ That, my friend, is the Shōwa Emperor. It'd really be appreciated if you didn't insult him as such, though his faults may be clear.

    Sorry, I guess it got kind of lost in the rush. I proposed it back here a couple of pages and then nothing really happened with that. I guess I should just write it up to make it official, eh?

    Want to Improve Your Lot in Life?

    Are you tried of being looked over when applying for jobs?
    Wish to be a positive force in your community?
    Want to know what's going on in the nation?

    The Aleyskan government has the solution to your woes. The newly improved Sitka Central School will be providing courses to teach all those who wish to learn Russian.

    Being fluent in Russian can open new job markets to you. All businesses large and small need someone to speak and read Russian at all levels making you a much more appealing hire.
    Win the admiration of your neighbors as you help them fill out official documents and inform them of the events going on across the country.
    Knowing Russian can also allow to participate in the much larger community of Aleyska and seek government jobs.

    Don't let this opportunity pass you by. Classes are every other day from 7pm-8pm.
    If this conflicts with work let your employer know that you are taking initiative to improve the company and they are such to let leave early for classes.

    Paid for by the Aleyskan Department of Education

    Apologies everyone; most of my friends came back home from their respective schools, so I've spent the last day or so catching up with them. I should have the better part of tomorrow to finish up the update. Should.

    @Grandkhan: "Nip" might be the derogaratory term used in Australia, but if you wish to be truly American, then "slap a Jap" would be more appropriate. :p

    NEWS FROM THE NANCHANG CONFERENCE
    南昌会议的新闻



    Amidst the celebrations of greater China throughout the cities, our scholars have spent long hours studying and debating the ideas of past and present China as they might apply to our nation's government. But it is not enough to be focused inwards. If we spend too long staring out our navels modernity will march on without us; and so it is time to take the pulse of the world(听世界的心跳). As part of this stage of the conference we invite all distinguished foreign scholars of government and politics to speak to the conference, so that we may find the benefits in all systems for our new Republic.


    我们最卓越知识分子

    However, we have no forgotten the greater foe. At this time we invite our brothers in the struggle in Qinghai, Sichuan, Yunnan, and Guangxi to sign the Pact of Mutual Defence against Qing Aggression (攘满患条约), which reads as follows:

    Whereas the Manchu tyrants have lost the Mandate of Heaven, and
    Whereas their goals are to subjugate and destroy all free Chinese, and
    Whereas they are aided in this goal by foreign weaponry donated by imperialists abroad, giving them an insurmountable advantage over any one Chinese power,
    Be it therefore resolved that in the event of Qing aggression against any one among us, we the undersigned hereby pledge to resist such aggression with all forces available to us, and aid each other in such resistance, regardless of any previous or ongoing disputes.
    Be it further resolved that the undersigned hold this pledge until such time as the Chinese Empire ceases to exist as an independent state.

    Signed,
    Li Sangui, Republic of China

    We hope that our fellow Chinese powers will see the immediate need for this pact and agree accordingly.

    打到丢天命的僭主!中华民国万岁!联合中华万岁!
    Down with the illegitimate tyrants! Long live the Chinese Republic! Long live united China!

    Given that the Nanchang Conference is of great historic import, the Republic of China would also like to invite artistry the world over to bear witness to the birth of a new nation. Students hundreds of years from now will watch in awe as the rebirth of China is shown to them on reels of film captured by expert Gatineau filmmakers, or listen to the broadcasts from Sydney radiomen watching from prime seats.

    Quebecois Cinematographers will gladly attend the Nanchang Conference, as the Creation of a new state from the ashes of such a historic one is a momentous occasion. The Various Gatineau Studios will produce information films covering the Nanchang Conference within the Coming year.

    Yeah, its the same here too, but I was trying to be all alternate-historylike. Language doesn't necessarily have to evolve the same way either, which is why I like to throw in phrases like that to show its not 100% like our world. :p

    Unlike the Nip-Jap difference, that makes absolutely no sense.
