    Yeah, it would be cool if there was an extra day or so. Since there's obviously not going to be builds or retreats, that wouldn't screw the schedule, I think?

    And:

    India welcomes all to visit its beautiful nation, though we regret that we can allow diplomats and tourists only: our facilities are not currently set up to accommodate foreign armies and there are no plans change this. Any foreign military forces will be kindly reminded to return to their homeland and then, failing obedience, summarily crushed.

    We hope we can all prosper in peace.

    Ancient Religious Texts Discovered

    In the ruins of a long forgotten city in southern India, explorers found a sunken Temple with many religious scriptures. While these are still being interpreted, the gist seems to point to an unknown land promised to the Indian people. Further updates will be posted as events transpire.

    well it is a good thing that there is a delay. because as embarrising as it is I can't read the name of one of my provinces. I have Kiel, Berlin and Munich but what is the 4th?

    and as a pre-emptive measure here is the head line for you

    GERMAN CHANCELLOR FAILS HIGH SCHOOL GEOGRAPHY

    It recently came to our attention that the german Kaiser failed his geography classes, and is incapable of naming all of the German provinces. In response to this the Kaiser is reported as saying; "Well, when the entire world is controlled by Germany there will be a whole lot more Germans that have similar difficulties, as it will be really hard to name all of those provinces."
    we are not sure we are very keen on his apparent expansionistic views.

    OoC: Seriously, though i enlarged the map but the text is on the line so i can't read the name of the province.

    The territory is referred to as Posen by jDip (it uses full names at certain times). I believe that this is some alternate name (the German name, perhaps?) by which the aforementioned Poznan is known, however. So you're right, I guess. I think.

    It would be shortened to POS then for orders. Thank you for the clarification.

    On another note I am seriously debating using the title. Kaiser Vexen, the not-so-wise as Vittorio. More for the python reference than anything really.

    The Peking Observer

    China Celebrates New Year
    All China celebrates the beginning of the Year of the Ox. Large celebrations were marked in all major Chinese cities, especially in Peking and Shang-hai.

    Nationalism on the Rise
    In China and elsewhere the new year is marked by the prominence of nationalism in foreign affairs. China, having recently shaken off the yoke of European domination, seeks to regain its rightful role as one of the powers of Asia. In the rest of the world, great powers prepare their forces for war and territorial expansion. Reports for preparations for military movements have come in from across the globe. Read all of the breaking developments here!

    China Agrees to Joint Administration
    China has agreed to the Northeast Asia Joint Administration Agreement. The Agreement, put forth by the Japanese Empire, divides NE Asia into three distinct spheres of influence. The Japanese will gain Korea, while China gains Manchuria. Russia maintains its presence in Vladivostok, along with guarantees of its sovereignty over the Seas of Japan and Ohktosk along with Siberia. Foreign Adviser Han Xiang Zi had this for comment: "China believes that this Agreement will allow our great Empires to expand in peace. We look forward to continuing cooperation with Russia and Japan, and believe our peaceful coexistence will serve as an example for the entire world."

    The Yomiuri Shimbun

    Imperial Family Celebrates birth of Heir!

    Great celebration has filled Japan! The Chrysanthemum Throne beirs a new heir. Heir apparent Michinomiya has been born to Crown Prince Yoshihito and Crown Princess Sadako. The young child was born April 29 in the Aoyama palace in Tokyo. The entire country will be celebrating the arrival of the newest member of the Imperial Family with much fanfare and gladness. A portrait of the new heir apparent will be presented to the Imperial Diet Kizokuin (House of Peers) and the Imperial Diet Shūgiin (House of Representatives) within the coming weeks.

    Katsura Tarō Elected Prime Minister

    Katsura Tarō, former Minister of War and hero both Boshin Sensō (Boshin War) and of the Battle of Niuchwang in the late conflict with the Chinese, Minister Katsura is expected to expand influence in Asia with his greater posistion in the national government. Recently having helped draft the North-East Asian Joint Administration Agreement, Minister Katsura intends to, with his fellow ministers and members of the Supreme War Council, solidify Japan as one of the Great Powers and maintain a peaceful co-exsistance with other nations.

    "Our future occupation and marginalization of Korean, which is expected to be completed by October of this year will place us in an effective posistion in Asia. Our placing the Sea of Japan as a neutral border between us and the Russians, along with the careful monitoring of joint fleet actions in the East China Sea will allow us the flexibility of not fearing for our own territory and prevent unecessary war."
    -Katsuro Tarō

    I just realized that I forgot to post a 24-hour warning last night. Two sets of orders are still out, and since I forgot to warn you guys, I won't put down NMRs for those countries just yet--but for those of you who haven't sent in orders yet, make sure they're in to me ASAP.

    Excerpts from the Moscow Serf

    ...The Czar mobilized his armies recently in response to clear Ottoman aggression. His minister of War warned the Russian people that they may be called on to repel the invaders...

    ...English fleets have been spotted in a position that can only be poised to invade Norway. The Czar maintains his claims over Norway are irrefutable, and that if the English proceed with their belligerence, war seems inevitable...

    ...Sweden will be welcomed into the Russian domain this winter, and invitations to a celebratory ball have been given to Swedish nobility. It remains to be seen if any will attend...

    England in Grave Danger

    There have been many reports of French and German fleets closing in on the borders of England's beloved capital. Sources say that the Prime Minister is currently in a conference with the Queen herself to decide what action to take in the seasons to come.

    English Apology to Germans

    Recent reports have come in, stating that the only real threat to the English Empire at this current time are the French fleets bordering London. Sources say that the Queen decided to retract her previous statement because she misinterpreted the signs of the battle.

    Okay, so my congratulations to you all--despite my complete failure to post a 24-hour warning (next time I'll write on myself as a reminder, promise), all but one of you have submitted orders on time. Because I failed to warn you all again, I'll just adjucate once I get all orders in.

    French Confused by England's Accusal

    The french prime minister was disturbed when he learned of England accusing him of agression. In a response speech from paris, he announced that the mobilization of the fleet into the english channel was purely defensive. Jaques Sol said that he beleived that the English could very easily launch an attack upon French soil, and wished to fortify the position.

    Excerpted from King Vittorio's recent speech in Milan:

    When will my peers stop fooling around and just call a pot a pot? It's called the English Channel for a reason. Yvan eht nioj. French fleets really have no business being there unless they want to tick off England. If Prime Minister Dwayna had ordered her fleet there, President Sol would be having a fit right now, talking about England's plans to invade France. Yvan eht nioj. They really should have just both steered clear of the place ... Yvan eht nioj.

    Inexplicable Patriotism
    The number of Indian men joining the Navy recently has increased slightly, a result pleasing to High Priest Wampdhi. "I am glad they feel strong enough in their fate to lay their lives on the line for the Navy."

    Reports that an astounding percentage of the new recruits speak Italian continues to puzzle military experts. "It's as if understanding Italian led to them feeling compelled to join the Navy. But that's preposterous."

    Slavery in Turkey Continues
    Special Indian "reporters" inside of Turkey report that the gradual enslavement of all non-Turks in Turkey continues, leading to much conflict While no firm death toll has been established, it is widely believed that the number exceeds 10,000.

    In an angry speech today, Wampdhi proclaimed "We will not stand for this. We will not let leaders oppress others so cruelly. We shall fight them on the beaches. We shall fight on the landing grounds. We shall fight in the fields and in the streets... and we'll sort of just fight them in general."

    Japanese Visit Rome in an Attempt to Open Diplomatic Relations


    All roads lead to rome, an old italian adage has certainly proven true in the case of 14 Japanese nobles and 2 MP who made a recent visit to the Italian capital. Minister of Foreign Affairs, Komura Jutarō and Prime minister Katsura Tarō visited the peninsular nation this November as part of an attempt to expand Japanese awareness of western states. There they were introduced to many interesting cuisines such as the legendary "Spaghetti" and "Pizza". These delicious treats were enjoyed by the visitors and most likely will incur a visit from the Emperor himself in the near future.

    Memorial for Queen Victoria

    Today the English took a moment to remember her majesty Queen Victoria, who died early last season. The new Monarch is said to be her husband, Prince Albert, son of Ernst, Duke of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha. This is unconfirmed as of late.
