The World State (Map-Game) is an Active Map Game.

Year 2070…

Years of technological innovation have paid off. From aircraft engines and jet fuel to nanotechnology and even robots, these breakthroughs have improved lives for the better. Although the beginning of the century seemed bleak, it will now be possible for individuals, communities, and countries to meet the challenges of the 21st Century. Humanity will experience unprecedented opportunities, from space exploration to the advancement of AI. And will have greater opportunity to live together as friends.

But there is one thing that doesn't change - politics.

The American Eagle is at the throats of the Chinese Dragon and the Russian Bear, trying to suppress the influence of ideologies that clash with its own. China and Russia stand as obstacles to the growth of their nation-state, so they attempt to influence the government of the United States and the other nations, to ensure that power remains centralized and in their own hands. These are just their tools, but they are not the only ones.

The world is at a crossroads. This is a time of decisions. The question we face today is how will humanity rise to the challenges of the 21st Century? Are we able to create a society of equality and a peaceful world, or will this knowledge lead to another war?

Only time will tell...

Rules

  • There will be no set schedule for turns. I am generally a pretty active person. I will not wait and waste everyone's time to release turns.
  • Please research any lore that your nation or faction might contain (leadership, type of government, ideologies, military, etc) and have it actually pertain to your country or faction.
  • Please actually be serious about this and don't make joke or implausible responses. It is okay to react to things that happen in the comments, but don't let that make its way into the game itself.
  • If you are inactive for over a week, you will be eliminated from the game. Please do not just do one turn and then leave forever. If you actually need to be inactive for that time, please provide a reason in the comment or on my message wall. Thank you!
  • You must have an actual reason for going to war with another nation. No just randomly invading another nation (unless there is an actual reason). Joke responses for this will lead to elimination (trust me, I've seen a fair share of those).
  • You may join if you have no prior experience in a map game. However, you must be willing to learn and grow from your mistakes.
  • Please no godmodding, meaning taking control of another player's nation, faction, or corporation and doing things against their wishes. You must get permission first from the other person before doing it.
  • Once I approve your claim, you can write your turn in the space provided!
  • You have to let some things slide. You are not all-powerful. Your nation, faction, or corporation might take some hits. You may lose some battles. You have to own up to it.
  • Mature themes such as excessive gore and profanity are allowed. Make sure it is reasonable though and within good taste.
  • Please be kind to each other in the comments.
  • Have fun!

Moderators

  • @SwordOfLands (I will also be playing too! I have already reserved Japan, South Korea, and the United States)
  • @ZakkuRakuishi

If you wish to be a moderator, please say so in the comments or on my message board! However, you must be active and serious, and actually take the rules into consideration. Thank you!

State of the World in 2070

  • Major advancements in technological and scientific achievements have been made, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and landscapes, cybernetics, nanotechnology, robotics, etc.
  • Regarding the status of the United Nations, it is still an active governing body for the world, although not as powerful as it once was. It has lost support over the years due to many feeling it has failed its original purpose (i.e to suppress any world conflict that may occur). Several reforms are being made to change that.
  • How advanced a country is depends on several factors, particularly its economy, culture, and how rich/poor it is. More powerful countries will be more advanced than weaker countries, but all countries will have at least some degree of advancement, whether big or small.
  • There have been no major geopolitical changes so far (players will need to agree to any form of this before a change is made).
  • Due to the success of Elon Musk and his company SpaceX, as well as other foreign space companies, advancements in space exploration have been made. Several colonies have been established on the Moon for scientific research, and while Mars has been explored by humans, anything further than that has stagnated.
  • The use of gasoline and oil in several industries has released carbon emissions into the atmosphere. This prompted many companies to go electric. Carbon emissions, while still active in some places, have largely moderated in the present day. Sea levels have risen by 0.7 feet, and while this is largely negligible by most, those living in countries such as the Maldives and Polynesia have experienced flooding in coastal areas. There is a global effort to try and change that.

2070

Storyline

Some things never change, and politics is one of them. The United States has stood strong as the world's dominant superpower for almost a century. The so-called "American Empire" has been a force to be reckoned with for years to come, but others have climbed the totem pole as well. They challenge the United States to a war not fought with men, guns, and bombs, but with words and more moderate actions. The People's Republic of China has silently waited for many years to claim its spot on the world stage, and it might finally have its chance. With more and more countries depending on China for trade and other financial compensation, the United States has frequently been left in the dust. Russia, on the other hand, has had its squabbles with the United States, so much so that they've directly influenced several American elections in order to try and spread panic and distrust among the American people.

The United States, however, is a tough adversary, and will not go down so easily. How will the United States respond to these changes in its power status? What will this mean to the American public? Will President Alexander Jenkins and his administration be able to cope with these new challenges? If they fail to deal with these problems before they escalate further, then how will the future play out?

  • Internal Affairs:
    • Prime Minister of Japan, Hoshino Shunsen
      On January 15, 2070, the Emperor of Japan, Takemoto, suffers a fatal stroke while dining with his family in the royal palace. Although attempts were made to revive him, Emperor Takemoto dies at the age of 78. A state funeral is held in his honor, where his formal appellation was the "Dear Departed Emperor", only used once before by the death of Showa in 1989. A week later, a coronation is held for his son, a charming young man named Arashiro, where he is declared the new Emperor of Japan. The event is televised, and is attended by an excited, but strictly silenced, crowd conducted in a Shinto manner. Japanese politician Hoshino Shunsen is appointed as his Prime Minister the next week.
    • As part of his promises, Prime Minister Hoshino Shunsen promises to unite the Japanese people under what many commentators feel is a "nationalist agenda". At the start of his term, his support among the public remains stagnant at 50%.
    • In a government research facility in northern Hokkaido, the EMP grenade is developed. It is a grenade fitted with an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) that is able to cripple technology such as vehicles, phones, radio, and even civilian infrastructure. Higher doses of it are able to damage physical objects such as buildings and aircraft structures.
    • Masao Seika, a robotics student at Tokyo Metropolitan University, demonstrates an AI he nicknamed "Coda" that he created with some friends to help his aging father with his chores. "Coda" is able to use a broom to sweep floors, throw garbage away, and even vacuum floors using special suctions on the bot's feet. He and his friends are featured on a YouTube video, where they are interviewed and Masao even gives a live demonstration of "Coda".
    • Prime Minister Shunsen gives an agitated speech on recent tensions between Japan and the United States, addressing "...that America has reaped the fruits of an aggressive foreign policy and a lack of strategic thinking on the part of its ruling circles. They have lost sight of their goal, which is 'to promote democracy and free peoples, the spread of freedom and peace, and the consolidation of a stable international order.' [...] Our position is clear: if we can not live peacefully with other nations, if we lose our sense of responsibility towards our people, then a day of reckoning will come."
      • Despite this, some citizens in Japan feel differently, and organize a wave of civil protest against the administration of Hoshido Shunsen. They claim he is a ruthless and cunning dictator who is poisoning the minds of the Japanese people. Many of the protestors still wish to have American support and influence, and claim that they will not last long on their own, contested and unprotected.
    • [SECRET] Hoshido Shunsen plans to rework the Constitution of Japan to allow for the formation of its own military aside from self-defense. He claims that it will be "unlike anything the world's ever seen" [SECRET].
    • On 16 November, Japanese video gaming company Nintendo releases the Nintendo Life Station under joint venture Kinboshi AV to celebrate founder Shigeru Miyamoto's legacy. The Life Station offers a full V.R. (virtual reality) experience to players, simulating the entire game environment like never before. It includes 360 peripherals, motion-guided actions using special sensors that attach to the hand, and more. Players are able to experience legendary Nintendo video game franchises such as Super Mario, Pokemon, Splatoon, Blasterstorm, and the Legend of Zelda in a complete virtual 3D realm like never before.
    • Now with Chinese investment, Japanese nuclear power plants see new potential for renewable energy. In addition, Tokyo-based energy company Hitachi is making the transition to nuclear energy as it considers how it can take advantage of the fast-growing clean energy sector in East Asia.
  • International Affairs:
    • In an announcement by the National Diet, Prime Minister of Japan Hoshino Shunsen declines the offer to join the American-led "Liberty League", but instead suggests an alternative: "The United States, China, Russia, and India should not be dividing the world among themselves, simply for their own benefit. We think instead, these four nations should cooperate on regional matters and discuss what is in the best interest for their own countries, not other countries."
    • Prime Minister Hoshino Shunsen accepts the invitation to the White House by President Alexander Jenkins, and hopes to mediate the issues arising involving American and Chinese "spheres of influence" and the creation of the Liberty League.
      • Doubtful of the effects the Liberty League could have on international relations, Japan turns down the offer to join the alliance. Prime Minister Shunsen also accepts the invitation by President Yuan.
        • Japan declines the offer to join the Chinese-created International Peace and Prosperity Council, but does agree to greater cooperation economically and militarily with the People's Republic. A deal is simultaneously met that in return for Chinese investment and assistance in the construction of Japanese nuclear fusion plants, the Japanese will allow for cheaper pricing of EMP (electromagnetic pulse) technology that was recently developed in northern Hokkaido.
    • In response to aggressive American foreign policies directed towards China and Japan, including the unexpected removal of American military personnel and transference elsewhere, the Japanese assure that the military alliance that previously defined the American-Japanese relationship has lost its value. The National Diet debates whether to continue their partnership with the United States, or abandon it once and for all.
      • Eventually, the National Diet comes to an overwhelming consensus: the American-Japanese alliance is done.
    • Prime Minister Shunsen accepts the offer by President Yuan to create a partnership between their respective space agencies. He states that more funding would be put into the primary Japanese national aerospace agency JAXA to help achieve this goal, as well as ramping up the training of astronauts.

Alabaster is 12 square miles, making it America's 2nd largest lunar colony (after Trinity. America's other three colonies include Washington, Lincoln, and Columbus Americana.)
    • The movement to recognize AIs as citizens gets its launch in Cambridge, Massachusetts, after an AI is "unplugged" after attempting to attend a local Starbucks. MIT Students begin to protest this and the movement to "#FreeAnnie#, Annie being the acronym for the unplugged AI (Artificial Nimble Nascent Intelligence-Emotional Robot" The movement reaches serious debate in the Massachusetts State Legislature, as the debate previously confined to abortion expands to other issues, that being the definition of life. Many on the Political Right argue that Artificial Intelligence is life, as it can perform the same "defining" tasks that humans can, ie having intelligent thought, expression, and communication. The left argues that AI is a tool rather then life.
    • Former President Ron DeSantis (R-Florida, served as Governor from 2019 to 2025 and as President from 2025 to 2033) dies at the age of 92 from complications of Alzheimer's. He is remembered positively by most.
    • The Department of Energy begins pushing nuclear energy, most popular in the Western United States.
    • For the first time ever, the number of Mormons in the United States outnumbers all other Protestant Faiths, with 30 million Mormons domestically (and 63 million internationally) making a total of 7.5% of the U.S. Population.

    • Average lifespan in the United States tops 100 for the first time, at 100 years 4 months. This is due to the major progress made in the War on Cancer launched in 2064. Additionally, the increased cultural influence placed on fitness leads to a decline in diabetes and cardiac disease.

Jenkins also invites the Prime Minister of Japan to Washington D.C.
    • In response to China leaving America at the negotiating table, the United States recognizes the Republic of China as the legitimate government of Taiwan, recognizes the Chinese genocide against Uyghur Peoples, closes all American embassies in China, boots Chinese diplomats, and places an embargo on China.
    • The Departments of State and Defense release a statement alongside President Jenkins, stating that the Monroe Doctrine remained in full force, and that under a "Jenkins amendment" to one of America's oldest and most well known item of policy stating that Europe West of the Ukraine, the Middle East West of Iraq, and the Pacific Island where now included under America's protection.

This includes increasing the previous three child policy to a four child policy, raising the allowance a family receives per child for families with two or more children, and providing benefits to families that qualify.

The study was originally started in 2020, to examine how China could have contained the virus more efficiently, and determine what steps be taken in the future to avoid such a mistake again. President Yuan and the top health officials in China issue a statement on the 50 year study. [STATEMENT] "We are deeply regretful to how the pandemic played out 50 years ago. We are here today to celebrate the conclusion of the study, and to look back on the tragedy 50 years ago. We are also here today to honor the brave men and women, who sacrificed their lives to keep us safe, while generations before fought the pandemic that ravaged the entire world. We look back at those moments with regret, but also with hope, for a tragedy like that never to happen again." [STATEMENT]
    • The health minister of China announces a breakthrough anti-aging therapy has been developed, with support from biotech manufacturers in China. President Yuan announces China intends to commercialize the therapy, and is willing to trade it with other nations.

Yuan says "it is truly a breakthrough in the field of biology."
    • President Yuan announces the passing of the Freedom for China Act 2070. This is an update to a previous law, which was passed in 2065. The law was originally introduced at the creation of the Chinese Rights Foundation, in 2030. China introduced the CRF(Chinese Rights Foundation) to modernize and liberalize the standard of human rights across the country.

    • President Yuan, in a statement to the international press, says "Our country does not wish to police the world, as the United States has done in the past, but instead wishes to prosper and thrive with the rest of the world, on equal footing. We wish to have peace, not war."
    • [SECRET] President Yuan announces to the Central Military Commission, that China has developed a new advanced military AI. The project is named AIMP (Artificially Intelligent Military Protocols) and would allow China to, if defeated(ie. in war, bombing campaign, nuclear strike) maintain its military might. This also means China can better automate itself than ever before in a defense situation. This project will only be disclosed to high level members of the Chinese Government, and will require permission to use or test. In the statement to the CMC, Yuan said, "It is our hope to never be forced to use this weapon, however if the time comes, we must be ready to defend ourselves and our interests." [SECRET]

    • [SECRET] Seeing that China may be on the brink of war, President Yuan orders the Central Millitary Commission to begin stockpiling a modified bioweapon, the Coronavirus V2, in their underground biolabs. The Coronavirus V2 is one of China's top modern bioweapons, and has the capability to spread through the air, skin, blood, and other bodily fluids. It is one of China's most resilient bioweapons, engineered to survive multiple varying climates and altitudes, along with being virtually untraceable. It would take a very experienced biologist or biotechnologist to decode this strain, which is what makes it so deadly. Along with all of that, it is very hard to kill. In humans, the virus presents itself depending on how it was spread. For example, if the virus is spread through the blood, it causes symptoms similar to leukemia, and progresses from there very quickly. If it is spread throughout the lungs, it causes symptoms similar to that of a fever, and progresses very quickly. Vaccines are available, and stored in the biolabs with the virus itself. The virus is also very dangerous to handle, and anyone interacting with it should use extreme caution. [SECRET]

Internal Affairs:

  • Under the administration of Prime Minister Hoshino Shunsen, Japan embraces a new wave of nationalism. With this comes a rise of anti-American sentiment in response to hostile actions taken by the United States. As the world becomes more unified through globalization, Japan rejects the influence of the United States, as they are fearful of becoming economically and culturally indebted to America. The Japanese government feels more like a small country and less like a world power. As a result, Japan turns inward in pursuit of cultural expansion. The Japanese society becomes a place where pride of nationalism dominates, which leads to the development of "patriotism" on the part of the average citizen.
    • In a social media rant, Shunsen slams the Americans, calling them "a savage nation" and a "truly evil state". Protests against the Japanese government start to largely moderate.
  • By February, Hoshino Shunsen, as the increasingly popular Prime Minister of Japan, makes great strides in upgrading the Japan Self-Defense Forces from a purely defensive-based “reactive force” to an offensive-based force able to engage other nations. This reignites debate over the status of the JSDF and its relation to Japanese society. [SECRET] In response, Prime Minister Shunsen attempts to draft a new constitution that will allow for changes to Japan’s Armed Forces, as well as other laws and policies [SECRET].
    • On 13 June 2071, Prime Minister Shunsen succeeds in suspending the Constitution of Japan, and work begins almost immediately on a new constitution. The finished product, the Reiwa Constitution, is a severely authoritarian document that dramatically expands the prime minister's powers and allowed him to run for an unlimited number of six-year terms. It remains largely uncontested in the National Diet. For all intents and purposes, the document concentrated all governing power in Shunsen's hands.
  • The Nintendo Life Station (NLS), released in November of 2070 on founder Shigeru Miyamoto's birthday, becomes one of the top-selling video game consoles of all time, surpassing that of Xbox and Sony combined. It sells over 2 billion units worldwide within its first eight months of release. It enjoys significant success domestically in Japan, and abroad in China, South Korea, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.
  • With increased funding from the government, JAXA begins training more and more astronauts for space exploration, the most successful of which are 35 year old Shinsuke Toson and 33 year old Tanaka Eme. They also plan to launch several new satellites into orbit that have been nicknamed SOL.
  • [SECRET] Paranoid of internal or external interference in wake of the attempted assassination of President Jenkins, Prime Minister Shunsen starts employing several covert actions to guarantee his rule won't be challenged. This includes the use of propaganda campaigns and the manipulation of the public media, infiltration of activist groups and the formation of the Kensai. The Kensai is a loose alliance of Japan's key ruling members, including some members of the Japanese royal family, led by the Prime Minister. As Shunsen's power grows, the Kensai begins to take on the characteristics of an authoritarian government, suppressing domestic opposition, cracking down on whistleblowers and even making adjustments into the SOL satellite program to promote espionage against foreign adversaries [SECRET].

International Affairs:

  • Upon Chinese request, Japan mediates a peace deal between the People's Republic and the United States in Los Angeles, California. This comes just months after the suspension of the mutual defense treaty between the United States and Japan.
    • During a press conference between President Yuan and President Jenkins following the declaration of peace, Nakata Gennosuke, a Japanese-American nationalist, rushed the stage and fired at President Jenkins several times with an AK-47. He then escapes after being shot at by the Secret Service. A manhunt is underway to bring him to justice.
      • Prime Minister Shunsen declined to comment about the assassination attempt on President Jenkins, other than he "sends his condolences". He also adds that Nakata Gennosuke acted on his own and was not in any way connected to the Japanese government, [STATEMENT] "It seems this individual acted on his own accord, against terms that were not in his favor." [STATEMENT].
    • Several news agencies reports on specific details of Hoshido Shunsen's life being brought to the public for the first time. According to these accounts, which are determined to be factual, Shunsen was born on 6 October 2035 just outside of Kyoto. He is of Japanese and Korean ancestry; his grandparents fled North Korea in the mid-2010s. He grew up idolizing his father and was obsessed about his North Korean heritage. At some point in his life, he tried yet failed to search for his unknown grandfather that he never knew, but he was convinced that his heritage is entwined with the DPRK. He also had education in Singapore. He is reportedly married, with one child, although their names have not been disclosed.

Russian Federation

Starting Situation for Russia: Russia in 2071 has become a democratic, but ultranationalistic state under the rule of Zakhar Navalny, current Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny's son. Zakhar's father ruled Russia from 2041 to 2051, after emerging victorious from a brief civil war in 2041 after Vladimir Putin's death at the age of 89. His elder sister, Daria also served as Russia's Prime Minister when her father was in control. Russia in 2070, while modern and has a consumer-driven economy, is also quite oppersive, as Slavic Nationalism is promoted massively, and anyone who speaks or produces anti-Slavic material is arrested. What will Russia do to ensure that they remain relevant, or go beyond just relevency? We shall see.

    • Death of Navalny - Former Russian President and our current president's father, Alexei Navalny dies on January 8th at the age of 95. Our President is deeply saddened by the loss of his father.
    • Sputnik N1 - We would launch Sputnik N1 into space, with the aim of studying the Sun. It would dive to just 1 Million Kilometers away from the Sun's surface.
    • WMD - Seeing the Americans and the Chinese assembling biological weapons, we would begin to craft highly radioactive bombs that can easily kill anyone who come into contact with it. We would also begin to research a potential Mini Death Star, which is basically a mini laser to kill millions of people from space. The project will be codenamed M3C.
    • Moon Base - We would begin to prepare for our own scientific base on the Moon, with the launch date being somewhere around 2075.
  • International Affairs (Diplomacy):
    • [SECRET] Belarusian Takeover - Before his death, Alexei Navalny told our president to complete the Russian dream by retaking the Slavic countries. Our President is inspired by this, and so we are planning for a takeover of Belarus on May 8th, 2072. It will involve robotic drones sabotaging the Belarusian military, before our tanks enter the country, while paratroopers lands in Minsk and take over the Belarusian government building. It will also serve good practice for our newly developed laser guns, as they are only developed a few years prior and has never been tested in battle.
    • Space Coalition - We would approve the space alliance that the Peoples' Republic of China has set up. Our President is honoured that his nation is invited to the Space Coalition.

Internal Affairs:

  • Several Japanese military leaders, including Minister of Defense Ose Keishi, announce that the Japan Self-Defense Forces will be officially renamed the Armed Forces of the State of Japan, followed by an extensive process of upgrading the military into a possible worldwide peacekeeping force. The military is also commonly armed with American-made weapons and vehicles, resulting from its past extensive cooperation with the American military, and also utilizes advanced weapons purchased from the Russian and Chinese militaries, including attack helicopters, MBTs, and EMP technology. By June, the AFSJ is outfitted with trained special operation teams.
    • A televised military parade is held in Tokyo to show off the new Armed Forces of the State of Japan. Prime Minister Shunsen appears to tell the Japanese people that "a new era has begun..." and that, “we have grown stronger than ever before.”
  • Prime Minister Shunsen joins the heads of the new Armed Forces of the State of Japan and JAXA at the Tanegashima Space Center south of Kyushu to observe the launch of a rocket bearing the first of many "SOL"-class satellites. Named after both the Roman and the Norse gods of the Sun, the SOL-class satellites are intended to study weather patterns in the Pacific and bring new light to global warming and climate change in the region.

The series is the first production from Japanese animation company Trigger, and is a joint project of Production I.G and animation studios XEBEC, MAFIC, and Tatsunoko Productions.
  • Shinzo Koji is detained at an airport by security in Kyoto after trying to illegally immigrate to Singapore. He was recognized by a passerby as the perpetrator responsible for the assassination attempt on President Yuan in 2071. After a search of his house and a long interrogation of his family, the authorities confiscate several weapons that were hidden in his basement and attic, including an AK-74 assault rifle, a Remington 700 pump-action shotgun, as well as several homemade pressure cookers and pipe-bombs. Upon being questioned, he states, "I just wanted to make my country proud." It is also discovered that he had several liaisons to Yakuza sectors operating in Kyoto, although this wasn't the cause of his actions. He is sentenced to life in a maximum Japanese prison.

International Affairs (Diplomacy):

  • Prime Minister Shunsen offers his condolences "to the people of Belarus for their tremendous loss and the pain and the suffering due to the Russian attacks." He added, “This will not go unnoticed. What the Russians have done is barbaric and totally uncalled for. Although we may have our differences, we must learn how to come together as one, not grow ever apart.” Shunsen also offers moral and technical support to the extent of Japanese infrastructure.
  • Prime Minister Shunsen agrees to meet with President Yuan to discuss the Russian invasion of Belarus, among other things.
    • A consensus is reached, wherein the leaders of Japan and China will conduct several trilateral meetings with Russian President Zakhar Navalny in an attempt to suppress the Invasion of Belarus. In addition, recently discovered antimatter technology will be purchased by the Japanese from the Chinese military for use of its own, in exchange for extended trade deals involving EMP technology.
  • In response to Japanese aggression on the world stage, President Hu Kyung and Prime Minister Shunsen engage in tense negotiations between their respective countries, accusing each other of double standards and hypocrisy. The feelings of distrust and hatred were already prevalent between the two countries due to Japanese invasions of the Korean peninsula in the past centuries, and in particular, the Nanking massacre. By September, relations between Japan and South Korea deteriorate following an inability to reach a common ground.
    • On 1 October, the National Diet passes a measure to place restrictions on imports and exports to and from South Korea, which many American commentators state will have brutal consequences for South Korea in the winter.
  • Prime Minister Shunsen delivers an agitated speech regarding the anti-Japanese riots and protests in South Korea, as well as in China and the United States, [STATEMENT], "The world has turned against Japan for virtually no reason. We did nothing wrong, other than not play by the ridiculous rule of law set up by the likes of America and China. Anything that just barely threatens their power, they all of a sudden come down on you like a ton of bricks. They always use force and force always comes at a terrible cost. We should all make a stand. Our brothers and sisters overseas are being slaughtered in the thousands. My brothers and sisters, come home. We will protect you, and if cannot protect you, we will avenge you. This is my word to not only South Korea, but to the whole world: if you allow these attacks to continue, then the world will know fire and fury like it's never seen before." [STATEMENT]
    • Japan demands that the United States, China, and South Korea take some course of action in stopping the anti-Japanese protests. However, this avails them little.
      • Prime Minister Shunsen thanks the Chinese for taking the anti-Japanese protests and riots seriously, as well as the construction of the Sino-Japanese Historical Museum. However, he has yet to hear a response from the United States and South Korea.

  • Population: Increase 133,004,115
  • Economy: Russia's economy, in 2072, is mainly a consumer-driven economy, with tourism and domestic services as our main sources of income. Russia also earns money via the exploitation of resources in the Arctic and exporting energy, both fossil and renewables.
    • Currency: Russian Ruble

    • GDP Per Capita (PPP): Increase $26,564
    • Human Development Index (HDI): 0.815 (Very High)
  • Internal Affairs:
    • M3C - We would begin to understand how a mini death laser will work, as our engineers begin to design the Death Star. It will be manually controlled, and Our President hopes it to be fast, agile, accurate and deadly.
    • Increased Robotic Soldiers - Due to rising tensions with Ukraine and Georgia, we would mobilize 1,000 robotic soldiers near the Ukrainian Border, as well as 500 on the Georgian Border.
    • Sputnik N1 - The Sputnik N1 has reached the Sun, and it is now beginning it's mission of investigating the Sun's inner atmosphere.
    • Anti-American Propaganda - After President Jenkins called Our President "a thug who don't know when to stop", we would place new billboards and posters across the Red Square, portraying President Jenkins as a president so unpopular by the people of America that he was almost assassinated last year.
  • International Affairs (Diplomacy):
    • Invasion of Belarus - On May 8th, 2072, over 300,000 Russian Soldiers, over 100 military aircraft and around 2,000 of our tanks crossed the Belarusian Border, with over 10,000 paratroopers landing across the cities of Minsk, Brest-Litovsk and Lida. Our reason for invasion is due to the fact that Belarus is a strategic nation for us, and if they fell into the hands of our enemies, Moscow would be completely exposed. Belarus is also an Eastern Slavic nation, and has always been an integral part of Russia, and so we view it as less of an invasion and more of a takeover.
    • Response to Japanese and Chinese condemnations - We would coitize the State of Japan and the Peoples' Republic of China for their interference to our internal affairs, and repeat that Belarus has always been an integral part of the Russian Federation.
    • Sino-Russian-Japanese Conference - After a diplomatic discussion between Chinese President Yuan and Our President Navalny, we would agree to cease our bombing campaign over Belarus, as it will harm our Slavic brothers while harming our economy long-term. We will not withdraw from Belarus however, on grounds of the inflammation it will cause in Russia.
    • American Sanctions - After a broadcast from the United States President Jenkins, which called Our President "a thug", we would close our embassy in New York, and stop all energy imports to and from the United States. Further action may be required if the United States continue their aggression against the Russian people.
    • Increased Military Presence in Far East - Due to Japan's increasing aggression and threat, we would transfer the Battlecruiser St. Nicholas and 4 more destroyers to the naval port of Vladivostok. We would also place around 20,000 troops and 300 tanks at Sakhalin.

    • Currency: Chinese Renminbi
    • GDP: 67.912 Trillion USD
    • HDI: 0.917 (Indicated as very high)
  • Internal Affairs:
    • In a letter written to President Yuan by the Chinese Defense Research Organization, one of the largest private defense think-tanks in China, several researchers express concern of the increasing military prevalence of Japan's new Armed Forces. The letter urges Chinese officials to engage in peace talks with Japan, as well as to express concern over the increasing militarization of Japan.
    • The Central Military Commission has designed and tested the first antimatter bomb. First announced confidentially in 2071 by the leaders of the Central Military Commission as Project Annihilation, the project has just been tested. The bomb exploded over an uninhabited area of the Xinjiang Province, and citizens were warned before-hand of the test. The bomb consisted of 100 grams of antimatter which produced a yield explosion of 2.15 megatons. The Central Military Commission vowed to pay reparations for anyone's land or livestock affected in the region.
    • President Yuan signs the Anti-Matter Regulations Act of 2072. The act outlines regulatory uses of antimatter. According to the new law, antimatter can only be used for scientific purposes, for the defense of Chinese interests, and for the defense of space-based objectives, such as an asteroid hitting earth. The act also lays out the containment procedure for the antimatter weaponry. Antimatter weapons must be contained underground in heavily protected bunkers and strongholds, and the weapons must be consistently monitored to make sure no error occurs. Antimatter weapons can only be launched by the President or with approval from the President, for any purposes.
    • Protests occur across China as citizens demand action be taken regarding increasing Japanese millitarization. Protestors hold signs saying messages such as "JAPAN SHALL FALL" and "THE END IS NEAR". In response to protests turning violent, President Yuan authorizes the mobilization of the People's Federal Police, or PFP, to carry out law and order across the country.
    • President Yuan signs the Japanese Minority Act, which is a law intended to protect the nearly 1 million Japanese nationals in China. The law states anyone caught committing a crime against a Japanese citizen or somebody of Japanese dissent exclusively based on nationality, will be harshly punished under the hate crimes doctrine. Individuals convicted may face a maximum of 5-10 years, depending on the sentencing guidelines. President Yuan says in a statement [STATEMENT] "The Japanese people have nothing to do with their governments endgame. The Prime Minister and his Cabinet decide the laws and regulations of Japan, not the citizens. I am signing this law to give protection to the people who are harmed by these protests the most, our local Japanese citizens. We cannot have a repeat of historical genocides on these lands." [STATEMENT]
    • Protesting dies down after the actions of President Yuan, much to the delight of Japanese advocacy groups in China. As a token of respect to the Japanese people, a new museum is opened in Shanghai. The museum, called the Sino-Japanese Historical Museum, displays many artifacts and artworks created by Japanese artists, as well as cultural symbols of Japan.
    • President Yuan signs the Increasing China's Soft Power Act, which is designed to increase the cultural and social influence of China throughout the world and increase Chinese support domestically. The act will give tax credits to companies who promote Chinese culture, and will hopefully incentivize companies to produce more Chinese content and entertainment.
    • As a result of the ICSPA, China starts a new domestic cultural revolution. Aspects of the new cultural revolution include new art forms, more content creation online, new inventions and discoveries in almost all industrial sectors, and thousands of new movies, shows, and music.
    • Several Chinese movies and artists are awarded across the world, owing much success to the ICSPA.
    • Chinese nationalism sees a sharp increase, which may lead to political instability across the country. To combat this, President Yuan repeats his past calls for tolerance of all worldviews, and says "we are an inclusive nation of amazing cultures and ethnicities." This seems to have a positive effect, as polls show nationalism is slowly declining again.
  • International Affairs:
    • China's Central Military Commission advises Russia against invading Belarusian territories. In a statement by President Yuan [STATEMENT] "We fully condemn the actions of Russia, and advise against a perilous invasion by Russia of Belarus. We do not want to escalate into conflict with our neighbors, but will do what is necessary to promote international peace. We urge Russia to pull out of Belarus." [STATEMENT]
    • President Yuan requests to speak with Prime Minister Shunsen about the Russian Invasion.
    • Chinese Foreign Minister Ha Ling offers his support to the Japanese government, and says "China is taking steps to diffuse Japanese hate within our country, and we value the relationship our two countries have with each other. We will not stand for hate or resentment against your country, or your people."
    • After Russia agrees to halt their bombing campaign in Belarus, President Yuan says in a statement, "This is a great first step in our diplomatic strategy towards the invasion of Belarus. We continue to urge Russia to pull out of Belarus completely, but we must take the small victories as they come. We wish the Belarusian people the best, and we will do everything in our power to support your fight for freedom."
    • Foreign Minister Ling requests to meet with Prime Minister Shunsen regarding anti-Japanese sentiment throughout China.
    • [SECRET] A state owned weapons manufacturing and research company, The Chinese Advanced Weapons Organization, starts work on miniaturizing the anti matter bomb, at the direction of the Central Millitary Commission. The current hurdle to miniaturizing the antimatter bomb is containment and storage. Anti-matter is a very volatile substance, and any mixture between positive matter and negative matter would be deadly. Therefore, containment methods have traditionally been very strict, underground laboratories with access only reserved for experts and high-level officials. With the recent development of antimatter as a weapon, scientists are concerned about containment if antimatter becomes more widespread in a millitary scenario. If the antimatter cannot be contained correctly, suppose 100 grams, the fatal blast radius would be about 9 miles surrounding. All antimatter weaponry currently is very large, and therefore the concern has not been brought forth traditionally. Estimated timeline for miniaturizing the bomb into a capacity for vehicle carry is about 3 years. [SECRET]
    • A Chinese optics scientist has just presented a viable cloaking technology at the Chinese Optical Sciences and Technologies Show of 2072. Once thought to be an impossible achievement, has now become a reality. The material, called the Light Bender, allows light to pass completely around an object from almost all conceivable angles, and can be applied to almost any shape or size, if enough quantity is available. This will allow the complete undetectability of almost all millitary vehicles by almost all forms of equipment and tracking devices.
    • President Yuan announces a new infrastructure project, called the Multi-Ethnic Gigacity Project. The MEGP will be the world's first gigacity, a city with over 100 million people. While ambitious, the goal is certainly achievable and would cement China's constructional superpower status. The city will be open to all, and will function similar to that of a small country. The initiative has the goal of attracting different cultures around the world, and will have many displays inside of the city. The city will have a central government, it's own transport systems and infrastructure, and it's own police and military.
    • President Yuan agrees to meet with South Korea and The United States regarding Japan.
    • President Yuan agrees to meet with the United Kingdom.
    • President Yuan announces China has commercialized and will be trading anti-matter as an energy source. Anti-matter is hundred if not thousands of times more efficient and powerful than traditional energy sources, such as electricity and hydropower. Antimatter now provides a viable option for interstellar travel and possibly intergalactic travel in the far future. Although in early stages, scientists believe antimatter will be one of humanity's greatest achievements.
    • The Chinese Space Commission and President Yuan announce that they have reached a deal with the United Kingdom on building their Skyhook Program. The CSC also agrees to finance part of the project, and assist in the development of the project itself.
    • President Yuan announces on his social media "We respect the United States right to conduct military exercises, however, we must ask them to pull out of Taiwan, as we did not approve of these exercises. We do not want to reverse course in our diplomacy with the United States, we just ask they respect the territories and lands under our supervision. We will be glad to conduct joint military exercises should the United States go through the proper channels of our government."
      • American Response: President Jenkins on social media, "We apologize for any misunderstanding regarding American military exercises with the South Koreans. We will promptly pull out of Taiwan, and return back to the South Korean mainland. As an added compensation, we would like to invite the Chinese to join us in conducting joint military exercises in the Yellow Sea and Sea of Japan region."
    • China accepts the United States invitation to conduct joint military exercises in The Yellow Sea and the Sea of Japan Regions. China appreciates the cooperation by the United States.

  • In a televised conference to the American public, President Jenkins comments on the Russian Invasion of Belarus, saying, "It is horrible, an egregious act of war committed on an innocent country. The Russians have no business being in Belarus. The thug Zakhar Navalny doesn't know when to quit. We will lend support to the Belarusians any way we can to help them get through these dark times." People gather in New York City, Boston, Miami, St. Louis, and other cities to light candles and offer prayers.
    • President Jenkins on social media, "While we, the United States, value our friends abroad, it is just difficult with the likes of Russia reaping the Belarusian people of their freedom. At this point, the Russians are just begging for trouble."
  • President Jenkins ignores the remarks made by Prime Minister Shunsen, therefore allowing anti-Japanese protests to continue.
    • Subsequently, he orders the increased presence of American troops in South Korea and Taiwan to combat a possible Japanese expansion. Drills and exercises between the American and South Korean militaries start to ramp up.
  • [SECRET] President Jenkins secretly discusses a plan with President Yuan and President Hu Kyung to overthrow the Japanese government in a covert operation, and install it with a more suitable and rational leader. The operation is based on the idea of forming a new government from three or four factions who are in the political underground at the moment, with the promise of a fair and peaceful democracy in exchange for support.

  • Revival of the British Space Race: The UK Space Agency proposes a rotating tether system to orbit Earth, allowing easier transport to Mars and the rest of the solar system. A fleet of jets, called Starlights, are currently being planned and constructed to accompany the space tether. The new Department for Space is considering allowing companies to commence economic activity in the territory, with a £85 billion package to upgrade the bases in the British Lunar Territory, including the main base Hawking.
  • Return of the Green Dawn: The UK recommences their war on climate change, despite having near net-zero emissions. A new fusion powerplant is constructed near Liverpool, the new capital of physics research, while current renewable plants are upgraded. A National Greenhouse Assessment is carried out to check all buildings for carbon footprint, with nearly all buildings passing. The first negative-zero emissions in the country are recorded thanks to the new carbon removal plant in East Anglia.
  • Rise of the Military: The Department of Defence increases their military budget due to the growing number of threats in the current world. Seeing the usage of bioweapons, Prime Minister Parker orders the development of a counter to biological bioweapon viruses. [SECRET] The anti-weapon is called Vox-09, ‘a living antibody’, created with a combination of nanotechnology and bioengineering. It uses enzyme receptors and genetic testers to lock onto a target, latch itself onto the pathogen and injects a genetic code inside the pathogen, replacing its former genetic code. The new code orders it to create antibodies against the pathogen at an increased rate, before giving an override order to explode it. [END SECRET]A system called FFIS (Formidable Firewall integrity System) is created to block hackers and computer viruses and is the most powerful firewall in the UK, used to protect government, military and NHS databases. Our physical presence continues to upgrade as well, with the new Ripple main battle tank, an extremely fast tank which uses electromagnetic dazzling lights to confuse opponents and is armed with a powerful 80KW laser cannon, debuting and the creation of the Oliver Kingston Class frigates, armed with the most modern military equipment, including bioweapon protection measures and the HMS William V aircraft carrier, equipped with Channel Warrior-12 planes, all equipped with air-to-surface and air-to-air lasers.

The National Hyperloop had finally finished after the connection of Belfast and Portpatrick named the Irish Sea Tunnel. Anti-ageing medication had become very widespread and the UK and been continuously pushing the frontiers of its science.

International Affairs (Diplomacy):

  • Russia: We side with China and Japan, citing that Russia’s invasion was an act of aggression and is completely unjustified, its reason being unacceptable. We are extremely concerned with Russia’s use of robot soldiers, breaking many ethical viewpoints. Finally, we are enraged by Russia's reaction to President Jenkin's social media post, that they decided to cut trade and diplomatic relations over a mere insult,which will only worsen tensions at the moment. Overall, we are disgusted with Russia and threaten to end all current scientific collaboration and bar Russia from involvement in our proposed projects, including the Skyhook Project and the Study of Antimatter Technology.
  • Australia: We are completely supportive of a CANZUK alliance. We also enquire Australia if they would want to join our Skyhook Project to Mars, alongside other CANZUK nations.

These thoughts were only accelerated when two Japanese nationals attempted to assassinate President Jenkins and President Yuan respectively.
    • After the National Diet passed a measure to place restrictions on imports and exports to and from South Korea, therefore greatly affecting the South Korean economy, anti-Japanese protests escalate into bloody race riots in the cities of Seoul and Busan, specifically targeting Japanese citizens and Japanese-owned businesses. Several shops owned by ethnic Japanese, as well as homes, were broken into and in some cases lit on fire by protesters. In one instance, three teenagers walking down the street were suddenly beaten and dragged out onto the street by demonstrators. Although many in the South Korean government condemn the attacks and call on local police departments and intelligence agencies to maintain order, Hu Kyung himself remains silent.
    • Tens of thousands of Japanese citizens are fleeing the country.

International Affairs (Diplomacy):

  • In response to Japanese aggression on the world stage, President Hu Kyung and Prime Minister Shunsen engage in tense negotiations between their respective countries, accusing each other of double standards and hypocrisy. The feelings of distrust and hatred were already prevalent between the two countries due to Japanese invasions of the Korean peninsula in the past centuries, and in particular, the Nanking massacre. By September, relations between Japan and South Korea deteriorate following an inability to reach a common ground.
    • Anti-Japanese sentiment in South Korea starts to grow.
  • The Republic of Korea Armed Forces and the United States Armed Forces continue to conduct military training and drills, despite Japanese protest.
  • President Hu Kyung requests to speak with President Yuan and President Jenkins to discuss the increasingly militaristic Japan under Prime Minister Shunsen.

  • Internal Affairs:
    • The Communist Party of India and the ruling Indian National Congress continue to see rises in seats won and membership in the upper and lower houses. This marks an increasing transition from traditional nationalism that was prevalent in India for so many years, to a collectivist socialistic attitude in India.
    • The BJP is increasing calls for membership due to its declining popularity among younger Indians. Younger Indians are becoming increasingly socialistic, and this reflects in the polling data. Citizens say they are most likely to vote for someone that is inclusive and fair to working class citizens.
    • The Erasing Corruption Act of 2052 has completed its purpose. The law was written to prevent corruption and give more power to Indian citizens, as a traditional democracy. Corruption rates in Indian government and business have reached an all time low this year, much to the delight of the citizens.
    • The Indian Space Research Organization kick-starts'= a new International Astronaut Program. This program is designed to teach children in India about the achievements of global space travel. The program is meant to be inclusive, teaching about all countries and space programs around the world.
    • In response to China announcing their Gigacity, Prime Minister Yaju announces the start of India's own Bada Shahar, or Large City. The city will consist of a massive residential and business district, and will function as a smart city. All energy in the city will be renewable, and clean, with zero carbon emissions. Businesses within the city will enjoy decreased taxing and regulations from India on the federal and state levels, and will be given 500,000 US dollars upon the completion of an office. Prime Minister Yaju hopes this will increase business and trade in India, and will allow India to reach even greater heights.
    • The Communist Party of India votes on a name change, hoping this will increase their membership even more. The party votes with an 80% majority approving the change of name. The Communist Party of India will now be called the Socialist Party of India. Polling shows many of the parties adherents are happy about the name change. When asked about the name change, one voter said, "I am glad they are finally changing the name. The idea of communism is still a bad thing in many citizens minds, and so I think this will be beneficial to the party as a whole. I just wish the change came a bit sooner."
    • Prime Minister Yaju announces India will be introducing a new Federal digital currency. The Digital Rupee Project will be developed by the Indian Mint and the Indian National Bank in collaboration with the Hindustan Crypto Company and the Blockchain Association of India. This project will bring the ability to pay for items to all Indian's, even citizens in rural areas.
    • Prime Minister Yaju becomes the first Indian Prime Minister to visit a colony on Mars, much to the delight of the Indian people. He visits the colony known as mangal mahal, or The Palace of Mars, which is the largest Martian Colony built by the Indian Space Research Organization's Space Colonization Wing.
    • Agrim Balavaan, CEO of the Balavaan Group in India, announces a new development for transhumanist enthusiasts, The Transhumanist Project. This project will be a year long study to try to create the first artificial human. Artificial human means a human that relies mainly on permanent artificial function to live, and does not require any replacements to any body parts. This is part of a new wave of scientific revolution in India.
    • The Balavaan Group creates a new party in India that gets approved for national elections. The Moderate Party, as it is called, is a fiscally conservative but socially liberal party that supports the idea of progressivism and futurism. The Party will receive financial backing by The Balavaan Group and is projected to quickly become a popular party among younger Indian citizens.
  • International Affairs:
    • Prime Minister Yaju condemns Russia for their invasion of Belarus, saying it was "uncalled for" and that there are "better paths to achieving the goals set forth by Russia than risking war."
    • Prime Minister Yaju expresses concern over Japan's increasing militarization and nationalistic ideologies. In a statement, he says "Japan is not a nation of barbaric people, they do not express their disdain with weaponry and bloodshed, but rather with diplomacy and class. We urge Japan to cease these provocative actions, and to allow their citizens to decide what is best for their government."
      • Japanese Response: "While we do appreciate the kind sentiments from the Indian people, we have to remind them that our actions are not provocative nor are we disallowing our citizens to decide for themselves. We are merely showing what happens when nations like the United States and South Korea attempt to spread the seed of their so-called 'democracies'. We have been forced to enact some less-than-popular laws for our people, but it is all to protect them from foreign enemies. As for us we have our hands too full trying to stabilize on our own. Our only concern is for Japan."
    • India invites all allies to a summit for diplomatic purposes. Prime Minister Yaju invites The United States, The United Kingdom, South Korea, Japan, and China. The summit will also serve as a discussion for peace and prosperity between all nations involved.
    • The Upper and Lower Houses of India sign a memo pledging support for the Belarusian people. The Memo states "We support your fight for freedom from these adversaries that try and encroach on your land. This is absolutely unacceptable, but typical, by the Russians, who as we have seen before, will not hesitate to recklessly attempt to throw themselves into the burning hellfire that is war. We will provide any support necessary in the face of this peril, and will not back off in this fight. We Indians know the struggle of wars and territorial disputes, whether with Pakistan or formerly the United Kingdom. We wish you the best of luck, and may you triumph in this fight."
    • Prime Minister Yaju requests all nations to condemn Russia's actions fully, as well as to pledge support for Belarus. "The world must fight for what is right, and that is freedom from oppression. Russia may hide behind the guise of economic growth as a result of a Belarusian takeover, but anyone can see past that. We know what they will do, which is enslave and murder the Belarus people. We have always tried to reason with diplomacy, not our fists, and it is obvious Russia is going to choose the latter. We must fight for their freedoms, or one day we may not have any."
    • India formally requests countries who oppose Russia's invasion to sanction them, stating "We need to cut off their economic access, they cannot get away with these actions."

    • The asteroid mining company Djinda-Horizons announces the successful achievement of its $42 billion AUD IPO target, allowing it to move forward with the launch of its first commercial asteroid mining venture next year. The largely automated mining craft (Beagle One) will be launched from the Darwin Space Launch Centre and will include a crew of 20 men and women who will serve on board for 3 years. The estimated profit of this venture is $60 billion AUD from an estimated revenue of over $500 billion and an estimated cost of $440 billion AUD. The raw material from the mining site (which is in the asteroid belt) will be shuttled to the Moon, where a processing facility will process the material after which the majority of the material will be shuttled back to Earth for commercial use.

2073

2072 was an eventful year to say the least. There were territorial disputes, infighting among the Japanese and Koreans, and an increase in nationalism across the world. The Russians pushed East into Belarus to retake what was once theirs, much to the condemnation of the world. The Japanese renewed calls not heard since World War Two for increasing nationalism and military development. Protests took place across many countries against the Japanese, with varying results. Some countries chose to take action and mediate with protestors, like China. Some countries chose to mostly ignore the chaos, such as South Korea and The United States. Ultimately, it seems Japan and Russia are the targets of the world's hate and damnation.

The year was also marked by major scientific and technological developments, such as the antimatter bomb and the Skyhook Project. These projects and discoveries have the potential to change humanity for the better, should they be used correctly and peacefully. Space diplomacy has been a major topic of discussion between nations, as the world sees an increased interest in space based resources and exploration. The question has to be posed, how long can this prosperity last under these circumstances.

Internal Affairs:

  • Between January and June, media outlets begin to report on the 2074 United States Presidential Election as early preparations are underway for the candidates. When asked if he would run again, President Jenkins replies "Never say never," but he adds that he is "looking forward to a little bit of a break." A political action committee known as Time for Jenkins is formed in February, seeking Jenkin's reentry into the race.
    • Other candidates include:
      • Democratic Nominees: John McKay, Luca Francis, Ted Franklin, Allison Sharpton, and Aaron Pearson
      • Republican Nominees: Lydia Bell, Ryan Murphy, Noah Hunt, Giles A. Kyre, and Iker Horne
      • Libertarian Nominees: Eva Hamilton and Hayley Jones
      • Green Party Nominee: Brett Chan
  • [SECRET] Dubbing the operation to covertly overthrow Shunsen's government in Japan "Operation Gray Angel", President Jenkins meets with several top government officials from the FBI and CIA, as well as military generals from the various branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. They make an agreement in support of the plan to seize Shunsen's government [SECRET].
    • Over 100 case files of possible "puppet leaders" are reviewed, though most are turned down for one reason or another.
      • The most likely candidate is Taro Shunsen, the younger brother of Hoshino Shunsen. Although he is a powerful figurehead in Hoshino's administration, there have been instances of disagreement between the two brothers on how to best run the government. Taro reportedly shows disdain towards his brother's regime, and wishes to change it for the better. Installing him as a leader would not only be more popular among the Japanese people due to their admirance of the Shunsen family, it would also be the least suspicious option, and the least traceable.
  • Ted Franklin, a Democratic senator from Washington state, announces his 2074 bid for president in Seattle on June 5. A 2074 Democratic primary is shaping up between Franklin and Montana governor Luca Francis, whose campaign will officially launch later in the month. A third 2074 candidate, former congressman John McKay of Maryland, has dropped out of the race, as has Massachusetts governor Aaron Pearson, whose run in the past was seen as a potential sleeper candidate.
    • In his announcement video, Franklin cites the lack of universal and affordable healthcare, climate change, overpopulation, racial inequality, use of capital punishment, and high incarceration rates as the most pressing issues for Americans. “I believe that we will finally get it right,” Franklin said in the video. “We’re living at a critical moment in human history, a pivotal moment in the history of our planet. I think it’s going to require a new kind of leadership, a new kind of activism.” Franklin’s message resonated with many in the crowd at the announcement, including Washington state Democrats chairwoman Chloe Lee and state senators Alannah McCall and Larry Hudson. “I’ve been in the party for 20 years, but I really feel like I’ve been in the Democratic party for my whole life,” Kuderer said. “I’ve been reading Franklin, I’ve been reading our platforms, and I am just excited about having this new voice representing us.” Franklin has already secured the endorsement of former U.S. Rep. Donte R. Terrell of Connecticut and former New York City Mayor Stan Newman, as well as a number of national elected officials, including former president Connor Burke, former Vice President Lawson Sellers and House Democratic leader Maya Barker. But there was some initial confusion about who Franklin would choose as his running mate. On Thursday, Franklin’s campaign issued a statement saying a woman will be named on Tuesday, which is the day of Franklin’s official launch.
      • On Tuesday, June 13, Ted Franklin officially announces that he chooses Sara Anderson, former attorney general of California from 2065-2071, as his running mate.
  • First Lady Jesse Jenkins visits a children's hospital in Richmond, Virginia, where she meets a child with a rare form of skin cancer that he will not survive. She posts a picture hugging the boy on Instagram and asks for donations for the children's hospital, resulting in an outpouring of support for the young boy. A Go-Fund Me page is set up for him, but despite the many donations to him, he dies on September 30.

International Affairs (Diplomacy):

  • [SECRET] President Jenkins invites President Yuan and President Hu Kyung to a meeting to discuss his selection, as well as steps moving forward regarding Operation Gray Angel [SECRET].
    • Yuji Shunsen is selected as the puppet leader, and the one who will lead the charge to overthrow his brother's regime.
  • Japan is listed as a state sponsor of terrorism by the United States on December 13, with the kidnapping and assassination of Yuji Shunsen cited as one of the reasons. President Jenkins issues a no-travel ban to Japan, as well as additional sanctions. He further states, "This clearly depicts the brutality and inhumanity of the new regime."

  • Internal Affairs:
    • The Light Bender material has been applied to approximately 10 percent of all military weapons in China, allowing them to remain virtually undetectable to all methods of radar, scanners, or any sort of sensor designed to track weapons. After success upon success for tests with the new smart material, The Central Military Commission decides all military weapons and vehicles will be outfitted with it by the end of 2080.
    • The Multi-Ethnic Gigacity project starts construction. The city will be completed in 2090 at the earliest, and will cost nearly 2 trillion dollars over the 20 year period. Polling shows citizens are happy with the project's layout as it was published, and are hoping this project will bring economic prosperity to even greater heights.
    • [SECRET] The Chinese Advanced Weapons Organization has reduced the size of the traditional antimatter bomb by 50 percent mass. This means antimatter bombing devices can now be carried via large vehicles which may launch from anywhere via remote controlled launch. China now has the capacity to produce what was 1 gram of antimatter into 0.5 grams of antimatter. For further explanation, China's first yield of 2.15 megatons of antimatter explosive was achieved via 100 grams of antimatter, which was very costly and non-efficient at the time of production. Now, China can replicate those results using only 50 grams of antimatter, a considerable decrease in cost and size. This will also improve other sectors as well, such as rocketry and space based energy sources. [SECRET]
    • [SECRET] The Central Military Commission conducts an antimatter weapons test, with the increased production capacity this time. The test this time is done with 500 grams of antimatter, which is the equivalent of what used to be 1000 grams of antimatter. The yield is 21.5 Megatons, a significant show of power, and destruction of some Chinese wildlife. As per usual with tests like this one, any citizen within the expected blast radius was warned beforehand to evacuate to a nearby shelter or dwelling. The test was conducted in a remote area of Xinyang, at an undisclosed location. The blast radius was nearly 21 miles, with reports showing intense seismic activity in the area. [SECRET]
    • [SECRET] After being alerted of a communications breach, China starts investing in quantum key distribution, a 100% secure method of communications and information sharing. The Chinese Secure Communications Project is initiated at the direction of President Yuan, which aims to fully convert the countries traditional communicative networks to quantum based communication methods by next year. The Institute for Quantum Research in Beijing recommends The Chinese Government to push other countries to construct a similar network, as it would be the safest from foreign adversaries.[SECRET]
    • The Chinese Space Research Commission has published their simulated results of a human Martian. China is looking into the effects of a child being born on Mars, in the hopes that one day, interstellar travel may be feasible. A Martian Child would likely have to be genetically modified to have a higher bone density and efficient muscular development, as the gravity is higher and more strenuous on a planet like Mars. Other than genetic modification, there is the options of artificial bone splints or muscles, and allowing evolutionary traits to develop. Overall, these results prove promising for the future of space travel and genetic modification.
    • According to polling on social media, Chinese citizens are more confident in their government than ever before. Government approval rating has shot up to 98.4 percent, with people attributing this to increased diplomacy internationally, increasing economic gains domestically, and increasing investment in the arts and culture sectors of China. President Yuan remarks he is grateful for the support of his fellow Chinese brothers and sisters.
    • President Yuan initiates a state of emergency in China after a terrorist attack has just occured in Japan. He does this to keep his people safe, as he doesn't know if a terrorist attack will occur in China next. In a statement, he says "Do not fear my fellow citizens, this is a precautionary measure to keep you safe. We will be barring all flights from in and out of the country temporarily until we have more information. We will get to the bottom of what has just happened, and will release more information as it becomes available."
    • China has become carbon negative during the state of emergency due to the decreased production of energy required, and the increase of renewables and new energy sources such as antimatter and fusion energy.
  • International Affairs:
    • [SECRET] President Yuan agrees to the meeting with President Jenkins and President Kyung. [SECRET]
    • [SECRET] President Yuan uses China's recently developed Threat Identification Profiler, a demographic profiling tool, in it's most strenuous test yet. The Central Military Commission uses the AI to rapidly identify a target for the overthrow of the Japanese Government, as part of the agreement from the previous Korea-China-USA meeting. The TIDP (Threat Identification Profiler) identifies two top fits for the position. The first is Taro Shunsen, who is the younger brother of the current Prime Minister Hoshido Shunsen. He is among the top members of government in the current Japan, and one of the best candidates to replace the current Prime Minister due to his pro-democratic views and familial relationship with the Prime Minister. The second candidate, Yuji Kawase, was much harder to identify, but would likely be the perfect fit for a mission such as this. His real identity is Yuji Shunsen, the older brother of the Prime Minister. Born to Hoshido's father and an unknown mother who likely left him at birth, Yuji was alive during the time his father lived with his grandfather in Pyongyang, DPRK. During this time, war was almost imminent in the DPRK as pressure built on the country to cease their nuclear threats in the early 2020's. The Shunsens' father decided to defect to Japan, in order for a better life for his newborn son, Hoshido. Yuji was abandoned in favor for his younger and only brother at the time, as resources were scarce in the country. The Shunsens' father eventually had another child Taro, who is the other target on this list. Yuji resents his father and brother due to these circumstances, and has worked for various intelligence agencies due to his expert assimilation skillset. Yuji is likely a better target due to his skillset, his connection to Hoshido's North Korean heritage, and his very anti-Hoshido ideals. He hates his brother, and is willing to the opposite of his brother for the country of Japan. We only obtained this record through previous intelligence wings within North Korea during the 2020's and due to the fact Yuji worked with Chinese intelligence for a time. Therefore China will select Yuji Shunsen as the infiltrator at the next meeting with South Korea and the United States. [SECRET]
    • President Yuan releases a statement condemning the attack on the Russian President. "We send our condolences to President Navalny for the loss of his son Dimitry and his granddaughter who were both killed in the assassination attempt. We also send our condolences to the President for the loss of his mother Yulia. We will not stand for these continued assassination attempts across the world, and we pledge our moral support for the Russian people and their President. We may have disputes, but today is a very dark day in Russia's history, and we fully recognize this. We pray for the President's mental health and wish him well."
    • President Yuan announces the completion of the MegaCarrier Ship. This behemoth of a ship is powered by antimatter technology, weights over one million tonnes at full capacity, and spans nearly 3800 feet in length and 700 feet in width. The MegaCarrier can hold nearly 450 fighter jets and 50,000 crew members in the residential wing of the ship. The ship took nearly 10 years to build before the discovery of efficient antimatter production, which allowed it to be developed at an increasingly fast rate. The ship will sail off at the East China Sea, before traveling through the Taiwan Strait into the South China Sea, where it will remain until given other directives.
    • President Yuan makes a statement regarding completion of the first stage of the Skyhook Project, "We are happy to report the project has complete its initial phase of testing to meet our standards, and we have already launched missions to cooperate with the British Space authorities in the development of this project further. We thank Prime Minister Parker for allowing us this chance to collaborate and build our diplomatic relations while doing so." Chinese social media is flooded with messages such as "A NEW WAVE OF DIPLOMACY" and "WORLD PEACE" after China's continued success with international diplomacy, which was scathing at best 50 years ago.
    • President Yuan brings up the possibility of a Quantum Communication Network to the international community. He hopes countries will adopt this method of communications, as a replacement for traditional methods of communication which can be easily tracked and surveilled. The Quantum Network would be 100% secure, allowing no nation to pick up on a secure end to end communication line. This would allow for governments to rely on electronic communication more with less fear of traceability. These can also be used with satellites to prevent hacking of them, and to allow secure calling between ordinary citizens and people living in space as well.

    • Assassination Attempt - On February 22nd, 2073, Our President and his family suffered an assassination attempt by an anti-war protester, with his house suffering an attack by a rocket launcher. The assassination attempt was thankfully unsuccessful, but Our President was severely injured, with glass and concrete hitting his leg and arm in several places. Our President has also lost his son Dimitry and his granddaughter in the explosion. Our President is deeply saddened. The man screamed "DOWN WITH NAVALNY" before firing the rocket launcher.
      • [UPDATE ON ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT] - The assassin is arrested. His name was Ivan Michitaka, a 21-year-old Japanese-Russian born in the town of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk on the island of Sakhalin, and according to our Secret Service, is extremely loyal and devoted to Prime Minister Shunsen. When he was caught in the heart of Moscow, he keep screaming something about Sakhalin being returned to Japan.
    • Death of President's Mother - On April 15th, Our President's mother, Yulia Navalny dies peacefully. Due to this and the assassination attempt that happened earlier, Our President has removed himself from the public eye for a few months, with Prime Minister Pershin taking over the duties of Our President for a while. He is one of the youngest leaders in Russia's history, being only 31.
    • Clean Energy - Our First Minister Pershin has a vision to switch to clean energy like hydroelectric and wind power. As a result, he executed the plan "HydroRussia", with an aim to build a whopping 500 hydroelectric dams across Russia's rivers by 2100. We would also begin a new wave of construction on wind turbines.
    • Japanese Protests - Despite following similar ideologies, our citizens in the Far East are worried about Japan's increasing aggression, and so massive anti-Japanese protests broke out at the city of Vladivostok, with all things Japanese boycotted there.
      • Massive Anti-Japanese Protests - After receiving the news of Our President's assassin being a Japanese-Russian, millions of Russians across the Russian Federation went on the streets, supporting Our President while burning pictures of Prime Minister Shunsen. Japanese Anime were taken down from all Russian television, while all things related to Japan like sushi shops, Nintendo games, Japanese electronics and even videos were raided and destroyed. In some cities like Yakutsk and Vladivostok, it turned violent, with people of Japanese origin often beaten to death on the streets. Sushi shops were often razed to the ground, and the people found eating those are often murdered in cold blood.
        • Pershin's Statement - After the events of Yakutsk and Vladivostok, Our First Minister Pershin made a press conference in response to the violence: "Our nation should condone the Japanese nationalism brainwashing their citizen's brains, and forcing them to do acts of terrorism for their so-called "Great Nation". However, the Russians who burn down sushi shops and killing Japanese living in Russia mercilessly is just as much of a terrorist as the man who almost murdered Our President. We want our citizens to support their country peacefully, and accept that people of all races who live in Russia are Russians. Those who murder others due to race do not have The Slavic Spirit, and are not true patriots. So here, I kindly request you all, my fellow comrades to protest against Japan's acts of aggression by peaceful means, and not by murder or arson."
      • Further Anti-Japanese Protests - While President Yuan of China, King George VII of the United Kingdom and Prime Minister Yaji of India have sent their condolences to Our President, the United States and Japan did not. While there were small anti-American protests, this is outshined by the second wave of massive anti-Japanese protests, taking place in July. Entire manniquins were dressed up like Prime Minister Shunsen, and were beaten by angry Russians, before being thrown into the Volga River. The Japanese Flag was also trampled during protests in Moscow and Samara. Citizens in our newly-accquired provinces of Byelorussia also joined in, and stood in solidarity with Our President, protesting against Japan's actions.There have even been reports of Russian sailors in Vladivostok firing cannons onto canoes that were filled with items related to Japan, like their electronics. To many Russians, the Japanese are deemed heartless people who are self-consumed.
    • Russian Space Program - We would begin to plan out our permanent Space Station on Earth's Low Orbit, as well as the first details of a Moon Base. The Space Station is planned to a science station, a hotel and essentially a space city on it's own, with plans of housing several dozen on the space station first. Gravity pods will also be used to ensure that life on the space station will be like Earth. The project will start in around 10 years. Our Moon Base meanwhile, will also be a mining base for us, to transport the minerals back to Earth. This is scheduled to start in 2076, with permanent inhabitation of the Moon by 2100. We would alos consider the possiblity of our own Russian Skyhook, after seeing what the British and the Chinese are building in orbit. Our First Minister Pershin decided that the Skyhook will be above all else first, and construction will start next year...unless we are allowed to help the British in the Skyhook project.
      • [UPDATE ON SKYHOOK PROJECT] - Our Skyhook project is placed on hold as we are allowed to help Britain to build the Skyhook. We would now send some of our best aerospace engineers to Britain, in order to help building the Skyhook. We see the Skyhook as more of an International possession rather than a possession of the British.
  • International Affairs (Diplomacy):
    • [SECRET] An Unexpected Transmission - While our Russian communication satellites, used for spying on foreign nations and to spy on our citizens for acts of terrorism is making a routine Internet checkup on citizens in Yakutsk to ensure stability of our nation, one of our satellites has picked up communications between our eternal enemy, the United States of America and the People's Republic of China. Here's what we managed to heard:

China: "我们如何执行灰天? (How are we gonna execute Gray Angel?)"

United States: "President Yuan, we have already identified over 100 puppet leaders to replace Prime Minister Shunsen. I heard that you're interested to install Taro Shunsen as the new Japanese leader, am I right?"

China: "是的. 我有兴趣任命太郎顺森先生为日本新领导人. (Yes. I'm interested in installing Mr Taro Shunsen as the new Japanese leader.)"

United States: "Good, because we are interested to install him as the leader too. He will be less susceptible to be seen as a traitor. I also heard that you want Yuji Shunsen as the leader, am I right?"

China: "是的. 玉吉顺森在破坏方面更有经验, 比太郎更憎恨他的兄弟, 他还曾经住在朝鲜, 并有另一个名字." ("Yes. Yuji Shunsen has more experience in sabotage, hates his brother more than Taro, who once lived in North Korea and has an alibi.")

United States: Mhm. He seems like a good candidate, but his ties to North Korea is a concern.

China: 不用担心,他的家人几十年前叛逃到日本. (No worries. His family defected to Japan decades ago.)

United States: Alright. So who else do we have...(transmission ends)

  • [SECRET] From what we managed to heard, it seems that the two superpowers of our time are plotting to overthrow Prime Minister Shunsen for his militaristic values. This deeply concerns us and in particular, Our President himself. If China and the United States is plotting to overthrow a government just for militarizing, there will be an even lesser reason to overthrow Our President, considering Russia's recent actions and their Retaking of Byelorussia. To not cause concern and panic, we decided to not reveal the plot, but instead stay on high alert for any potential attempted destruction and overthrowing of our democratically elected President. [SECRET]
  • Invasion of Belarus - (Is it up to the mods to decide if the invasion is successful?) After seven months of combat between the Russians and the Byelorussian rebels and army, our tanks entered Minsk on January 19th, with patriotic citizens of their new overlords cheering as we gain control over Belarus. The invasion caused the deaths of 11,232 people on our side, and an estimated 21,000 on the Byelorussian side. The cause of the slow invasion was due to the lack of air support, which we pulled back to ensure that as few Belorussians are killed as possible. We would officially annex Belarus on May 2nd, 2073.
  • Reaction to Chinese Statement - Our President, who is in a sling, appeared in a televised broadcast, thanking President Yuan for his support. However, he appeared tired and weak, and seemed to have lost much of his usual energy than when he usually presents himself - a strong, charismatic and fiery leader. Many Russians as a result are worried about Our President's mental health, and even newspapers and television are openly concerned about Our President's mental health, with him losing his son, his granddaughter and his mother in such a short amount of time.
  • All-out Sanctions against Japan - After several months, Our President reappaears to thunderous appulase in Moscow's Red Square. He made a speech that was broadcasted live across Russian television (Russian media by 2073 are free to critize the government, but cannot critizize the Slavic people), watched by an estimated 100 million Russians in Russia alone. Our President spoke about his father fighting for democracy in Russia, his struggle against an authoritarian regime, and to combat corruption. He then proceeded to say in his speech: "There is a country across the sea who needs someone like my father. A country who was once the most prosperous in the world. A country that once enjoyed freedom, and now did not. I am talking about the country we lost to in 1905. The country we got back Sakahlin from. This behaviour from Japan is unacceptable, with one of their people attempting to murder my entire family. This needs to change! From now on, all Russian companies are banned from doing any sort of business with Japan; all flights from Russia will not go to Japan, and we'll show them that the strength of the Slavic People is greater than those Japanese, stuck on their 6,000 islands!"
    • In general, here's a list of all the sanctions we will impose on Japan:
      • Cancellation of all flights to and from Japan, as well as the end to using their airspace.
      • All Russian businesses banned from doing any kind of business with Japan.
      • All imports from Japan, including electronics and food, are called off. Japanese Cuisine shops can only use ingredients from other countries.
      • All Japanese TV Shows is blocked from broadcasting in Russia.
      • The Japanese Army listed as a terroist organization, with every Japanese in the country being forced to perform a full audit.
      • Video Games from Japan banned, but allowed if manufactured in Europe or America.
      • Travel ban on Japan. Any Russian who go to Japan, even for a stopover could face a 5-year long prison sentence.
      • Cutting ties with Japan, ending all scientific cooperation.
    • Some media outlets questioned if this is necessary for Russia, especially for the full audit part. However, most agreed that it is required to ensure that Russia can still be internationally cooperative while still being dependent.
  • Russian Statement on Yuji Shunsen - Yelena Navalnya, the 28-year-old daughter of Our President, and now Our President's only child with his son Dimitry killed during Our President's assassination attempt, made a speech while on a domestic visit to the city of Omsk. She said: "I, and on behalf of my family, would like to condemn in the strongest degree of the murder of Yuji Shunsen. His death is a tragedy to the freedom and democracy of the State of Japan, and this further proves that action must be taken to end Prime Minister Shunsen's tyranny once and for all. Our nation has suffered under the brutal regime of Prime Minister Shunsen, with my brother and my niece murdered by their totalitarianism and their treacherous Nazist ideals. It's not just us that stands in solidarity however, with the United States President also being shot two years ago. Russia and America might be enemies for 150 years, but now, they have a common enemy for once. Like Nazism, we shall work with the United States to take down this scum of humanity that is polluting our planet!"
    • A new grandchild for Our President - On the speech mentioned above, Yelena is revealed to be expecting a child, with many people suspecting of a pregnancy due to her seemingly bloated belly while visiting Omsk. Our President is delighted, and reportly told Our First Minister: "Finally a pearl in a can of caviar."
  • Shunsen's Death - We would not comment on the death of Japanese Prime Minister Shunsen. However, inside reports from the Kremlin reported that Our President told Our First Minister that: "Quite anticlimactic but I'm glad he's dead. Dimitry and Ayla has been avenged by them."

(Note: The term "Our President" is used for all Russian Presidents, dating as early as the early 2030's when Vladimir Putin was still in power. Russian Prime Ministers are referred to as "Our First Minister", while other ministers are referred to as "Our Minister".)

    • HDI: 0.905 (indicated as very high)
  • Internal Affairs:
    • The Socialist Party of India is projected to gain significant amounts of seating in each house, Lower and Upper. When asked about the projections and what changed, Party leader Aditya Sakala states "I think there is a new meaning associated with Socialism, progress. I think many young Indians realize that the only way to achieve our goals set forth, are through working together without haste. These young voters are the key to India's future, and I think they realize this, and are voting accordingly. We appreciate all the support of our party, and hope we will continue making this nation a better place to be for future generations."
    • The Digital Rupee Project has completely been distributed to all citizens of India. Anyone with a connection to the internet or electronic networks can pay for items and goods using the DRP app. By completely digitizing the federal currency, banks see large decreases in business and customers, due to the decentralized nature of the currencies medium.
    • The Incentivizing Banks and Financial Institutions Act of 2073 is signed into law by President Hadi after going through both Houses. This act stipulates that individual states within India may regulate how the Digital Rupee is distributed, whether that be through a State Bank, Commercial Bank, or Completely Decentralized. This act will also allow banks to trade and loan the Digital Rupee, which was not previously stipulated at the creation of the project. The banks also will now have limited power to increase rates of transaction between themselves and customers/clients of the bank. This will hopefully allow banks to see economic growth and ensure fairness and privacy to citizens at the same time.
    • The Universal Basic Income Act goes into effect after being signed by President Hadi. This will allocate a certain minimum salary to Indian citizens who live in poor or rural areas, or those who are not above a certain income threshold. A similar act was passed 20 years ago in 2053, however it was up to the individual states to decide how much someone got per month. With the new law, the Federal Government will mandate a minimum salary and the requirements to get the money. This should allow Indian's who are not well off to enjoy the benefits of those who are.
    • The Indian Defense Technology Corporation has achieved successful results of a sound barrier test. The project, called the Sound Wave Defense Project, will use high pitched condensed sound waves to allow protection of an area. The concept, while not new, was recently though to be unachievable. The project uses sound waves at an extremely high frequency that is not detectable to a human ear, to disable hearing and electronic devices that come within the field of range. This would be a cheaper alternative to an EMP, and would allow selective entrance to certain military facilities with the use of special earpieces. This should increase the security of facilities across the nation that are meant to be protected.
    • The Indian Antimatter Research Commission is formed, to discuss how antimatter may be produced and used at a cheaper rate than is available from China currently. The IARC will be headed by Aarush Shayak, a prominent researcher and theoretical physicist in India. [SECRET] The commission will also be defense based as well, to come up with a efficient anti-matter bomb design, once one can be developed.[SECRET] The results of the commission will be published next year, and development will start this year. India hopes to be the second nation to domestically produce their own antimatter at an efficient rate [SECRET] And Antimatter Bomb[SECRET] for use internationally.
    • Ahyan Indu, President and CEO of Indu Industries, seeing Russia's ambitions in space, offers to help. Ahyan is often called the Indian Elon Musk, due to his reach in many industries and his interest in the future. Because of his strategic investments, along with his charisma and business intelligence, he has risen to become one of the richest men on the planet at the age of 35. Indu's space company, called simply InduSpace, has very ambitious goals of completely commercializing space, some of which have already been achieved. His company has risen to fame among angel investors across the world, much to the joy of Indian capitalists. Ahyan is among a very small group of businessmen who have received the Rakesh Sharma award for Contributing to Space in 2071, at the age of 32. He has won multiple other awards as well for his endeavors from many other organizations such as the Gandhi Award for the Betterment Of Humanity and the Indian Humanist Award of 2068, both awarded due to his increasing charity endeavors in both of those years. He was named India's man of the year in 2072, when he announced major changes in his companies employment structure such as a Universal Basic Income for all employees, high quality healthcare, and increased benefits and stock options for his employees. He requests to speak with the Russian Prime Minister about his ideas to help Russia in their space endeavors.
    • Ahyan has hinted at running for the Indian Presidential election next year. Even with the election being a year away, many people across the political demographic pledge their support behind him if he will run. As a result his Indu Industries stocks are up 30%, resulting in one of the highest stock gains in Indian history. When asked about his thoughts of the current administration, he said, "The current administration is working for some people, and not for others. In an Ahyan Indu Administration, everyone would be accounted for and the policies and laws would be updated to reflect that. I am thinking of possibly running as an Independent, or possibly seeing if I can get an National party approved for me to run under."
    • Ahyan will eventually get what he wishes for, a national party. The party is called the Forward Party. The Forward Party's ideals are that of progressivism and coalitionists which will reflect in the parties declaration statement next year. Ahyan gets even more support at the idea of the new party formed for him.
    • The Indian Shelter Network has officially been constructed. The ISN is a vast network of tunnels, buildings, and infrastructure underground, where all citizens may evacuate in case of emergency. There is hyperloop transportation between all stations and shelters underground, as well as traditional rail systems for supplies and materials. The ISN has the capacity to fit nearly 1.8 billion people underground, due to the varying levels and depth which the project was constructed at. The shelters can survive the highest of impacts, from a nuclear bomb to an asteroid, and can sustain all Indian citizens for 150 years at the minimum. Researchers who worked on the project commented on it, saying "it's like a whole underground nation, the buildings are huge and the shelters are updated to the highest standards of living for citizens, overall it is an engineering marvel." The project took 30 years to complete and was built with assistance by Hindi Construction and Co, Bara Chemicals Inc., and Tata Industries.
    • Protesting takes place across India, after an increase in Japanese nationalism. Protesting occurs in all major cities, with a few in Mumbai and Delhi turning into riots. Protestors chant DOWN WITH JAPAN and JAPAN WILL FALL TODAY as they display the flags of nations who oppose Japan, such as The United States and China. Most protests, while peaceful, have vile messaging behind them, with racial and ethnic slurs posted on signs across the Indian homeland. According to polling done by the Indian Reader's Media Company, a massive media holding company in India, Indian citizens view Japan as the second worst country in the world when ranked among 50 countries. These factors combined force Prime Minister Yaju to call in the Indian Federal Police Service to dispel the violent rioters and protestors.
    • President Hadi signs the Japanese Protection Act. This act increases the criminal penalty to a crime committed against anyone of Japanese Descent solely based on that factor. President Hadi hopes this will quell the anti-japanese riots that are starting to look like race riots. The results are mixed, while accomplishing the desired result of decreasing hate crimes committed against Japanese Indians, his popularity takes a major hit, as many say he is giving favoritism treatment to the Japanese when other citizens need it the most. This will most likely be a defining moment if the President is not reelected next term.
    • An ex Indian Air Force Pilot named Balvan Darsh hijacks Ekaraj Airlines Flight 1588, with nearly 600 passengers on board, on a flight from Mumbai International Airport to Tokyo International Airport. While sufficiently in the air, with an accomplice on board the flight, he kills both the pilot and copilot of the plane using a concealed handgun. He then, according to records of the flight, disables the Autonomous Control function on the plane, which allows both Balvan and his accomplice to take control of the plane manually. Balvan's accomplice kept everybody out of the cabin, while Balvan flew the plane further into Japanese airspace. He then flies the plane directly into the National Diet Building, where a legislative session was taking place at the time, instantly killing all passengers, and 213 Japanese, including various staffers and members of the Diet, as well as tragically Prime Minister Shunsen.
    • [SECRET] Prime Minister Yaju orders a full-scale internal investigation, consisting of thousands of witness testimonies and tens of thousands of documents reviewed. The result of the investigation is published privately in the 1588 Papers, named after the flight number of the plane. The report shows many things that could have prevented the attack. A background check into Mr. Darsh showed mental health struggles after leaving the Indian Air Force, with reports of him hearing "voices" and seeing "people who were not there." The screening process to the airport was also examined, but determined not to be at fault. Mr Darsh's accomplice convinced the agent at the checkpoint he was official security staff, and that he and Mr. Darsh would have to do a routine inspection of the plane as it flew. Surely enough, this convinced the agent to let the two avoid walking through any checkpoints or stops, allowing them to walk freely on the plane with two handguns and one pipebomb. A records check of their search history and online activity show they were active in many Anti-Japanese forums on the internet, and were discussing their possible plans there as well. The search also showed a manifesto published by the hijacker, Mr Darsh, two hours before the plane crash. In it, he said he "hopes to go down as hero and a fighter for the free people" and that he would "make the Japanese realize their mistakes." Witnesses described Mr Darsh as very reclusive and antisocial. His house was raided, and in it was discovered instructions and a detailed layout of how to takeover the plane, what model of plane was flying, all exits and entrances to the plane, and what day the Diet session would be held in Japan. The flights logs were posthumously downloaded by the Indian Flight Regulatory Agency, and recorded on the plane's microphone was "俊泉は死んでいる" or "Shunsen is dead." It was later confirmed Hoshido Shunsen was in the building at the time of the attack, and was struck by the plane directly, killing him instantly. More investigating will be done to determine if they acted alone, or as apart of a bigger scheme. [SECRET]
    • [SECRET] Further investigations into the attack show that the two did not act alone. Mr Darsh and his accomplice were part of a group called "जुल्म से आज़ादी" or Freedom From Oppression. The group has a large following among extremists who wish for oppressive states to fall. They were not known to be violent, although were placed on the Indian Hate Group Registry just in case. They communicated between themselves on highly encrypted channels, and functioned similar to a rebel terrorist group, with the head of the group being an ex Indian intelligence official. The Indian Federal Crime Analysis Agency reports and recommends three buildings be raided. President Hadi authorizes the raid and arrest of any group members connected with the investigation. Meanwhile, the country is put into lockdown, and the President, Vice President and Prime Minister evacuated into the Indian Shelter Network Executive Wing. They will have full control of the country and will recommend the evacuation of all citizens if necessary, however the alert in a 3 on the Imminent Danger Scale.[SECRET]
    • The Digital Consciousness Initiative, funded by The Artificial Life Institute in Chennai, officially starts. The project hopes to make a complete map of the brain's neurons and understand the electrical signals that are produced by it, in the hopes of allowing people to upload their consciousness for free. Only a handful of companies and the government have the technology to upload consciousness, however they are all for select individuals or astronomically costly. This project hopes to allow all people to access this technology for free, and improve the lives of Indian's. The President of the Institute made a statement at the opening ceremony, saying "This is a big day for futurists like myself, and for the Indian citizens of the future. We like to think this nation was built on cohesion, not capitalist greed. So, when we see companies charging ridiculous prices for something, and we have the capacity to change it, that is what we will do. We hope to see a day when all Indians can access things such as these for cheap or free, and hope this elitist capitalist culture dies very soon."
    • [SECRET] President Hadi discusses whether to release the 1588 papers with various members of both houses and the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister comments on it, saying "It would increase transparency within the country, but at the same time could jeopardize the investigation. I believe we release limited information, so to give the Indian people what they want, but also not go too far and spill the entire story." President Hadi agrees with the assessment of Prime Minister Yaju, and decides to release the attackers name and likely cause of the attack. This is all he decided to release, despite some pressure from members of the opposition claiming he should release the entire investigatory papers so far. [SECRET]
    • Anyone involved in the planning of the attack is arrested and the Freedom from Oppression group is dismantled. Many of the perpetrators are given life sentences, as the death penalty was abolished in India 40 years ago, as part of an Indian Peace Movement from the BJP. Some involved in planning the attack are given lighter sentences, but the figureheads are given harsher sentences. President Hadi and Prime Minister Yaju authorize the release of the 1588 papers, as the investigation wraps up, and they revoke the Level 3 threat on the Imminent Danger Scale to a zero. Stricter regulations are added to checking of flights, and simulations show a less than 1% chance of a terrorist attack from now on. Flags across the nation are lowered to half staff, and Prime Minister Yaju makes a statement "Although the Japanese are in some times enemies and in some times friends, we treat a loss of foreign life as the loss of one of our own. We are releasing the investigation fully, and we have made arrests to all suspects involved in the attack. We condemn the attack fully, and apologize for the pain the terrorist caused to their nation."
  • International Affairs:
    • Prime Minister Yaju condemns the attack on the Russian President, saying "There is cause for alarm, now that three world leaders have almost lost their lives to Japanese nationals. This is not an attack on the Japanese, but a statement of fact. We send our condolences to Mr. Navalny for the loss of his son, mother, and granddaughter. We wish him the best."
    • [SECRET] The Ministry of Defence comes up with a possible attack plan against Russia to free Belarus, at the direction of Prime Minister Yaju. We would plan to use space based weapons, which should be developed later this year, in combination with EMP technology, which should also be developed later this year. We would use EMP tipped missiles to disable critical Russian communication systems and possibly satellite transmissions. We would then use space based orbital lasers, which would redirect solar energy in the direction of the Russian Capital of Moscow, if the Russian's do not decide to surrender and ceasefire at the initial attack. We hope to have the capacity similar to a nuclear bomb with our space based laser system, which will only be used as a last resort. We are also investing in AI-based fallback plans if the enemy invades our country at any point. [SECRET]
    • [SECRET] The Indian Space Defense Force launches 500 space based laser systems on 3 ULV rockets, disguised as Indian mapping satellites. These satellites can be transformed into attack satellites at any time with approval of the Upper and Lower Houses of India, but can also be approved by the President himself. These AttackSats as they are called are in response to increasing aggression by the Russian Military in the overtaking of Belarus. They are also launched in response to increasing Japanese nationalism and military buildup.[SECRET]
    • India invites countries to help them build the new Gigacity in return for increased trade and economic benefits from India. Prime Minister Yaju remarks that although India can built it themselves, they would like to see other nations chip in and help if it would be possible. He says this is to build India's international reputation further, and to give back to the other countries that help India prosper. He would specifically call on the UK, China, Australia, and the United States to help with financing this project.
    • India requests permission from the British Government to allow them to use their Skyhook Project as a placeholder until India can sufficiently develop their construction of Antimatter. Prime Minister Yaju says India wants to increase cooperation between the two nations, and recognizes the importance of the diplomatic relations with the United Kingdom. India also will help finance the project should the British Government allow it to, and would like to help in any other way possible.
    • Prime Minister Yaju thanks Prime Minister Parker for allowing India to collaborate with the Skyhook Project, and thanks him for investing in the Gigacity Project as well. In a statement he says, "We thank our friends in the United Kingdom for allowing us the opportunity to advance our diplomacy with their great nation. We thank Prime Minister Parker for announcing investments into our gigacity as well, which should help us build it much faster than previously projected."
    • Bablu Safik, President of the Artificial Life Institute in Chennai, announces he would like to test the Institutes Digital Consciousness Initiative on Prime Minister Hoshido Shunsen. In a statement he says "We send our condolences to the Prime Minister and his family, but we may be able to offer a solution, free of any cost. We believe our technology is sufficient to provide Hoshido consciousness again, and we would offer our help in maintaining it. We would offer the Japanese Government to meet with our researchers and engineers, who could offer a constructed consciousness of Hoshido once again. Our technology can recover information on a brain that has been dead for 14 days, or longer with more limited success. We hope the Japanese will allow us this opportunity to make this right, as we are sorry for the loss. We wish the Japanese people well, and will wait for an update." This draws mixed reactions from the Indian people, as some would like their country to repay Japan for the actions of the terrorist, but some also not wanting the threat of war with Japan, and wish to remain peaceful. Regardless, the majority of Indians seem behind the statement of Safik, and support the idea of reviving Hoshido.

Internal Affairs:

  • Britain on Mars: Thanks to the Skyhook Project, the Earth and Mars tethers are successfully launched, with the aid of China and CANZUK nations. The Earth tether was launched from Northern Australia, allowing it to orbit close to the equator. The Mars tether was launched from a Chinese base. The tether uses electrical and antimatter propulsion to increase its momentum if needed. After undergoing trials for safety, the first Starlight jet travels by tether system, taking just 3 months and 20 days to arrive at China’s Martian bases. The landing is nationally televised to all in the UK. A month later, the UK establishes its first Martian base, Base Evans, which is cohabited with Chinese astronauts. The tether makes several more successful trips to and from Mars, including the first antimatter powered Starlight Jet, thanks to Chinese cooperation, which reduced the travel time to just 2 months and 4 days, and is open for CANZUK and Chinese use. Any nations wishing to use the tether must first obtain British permission to do so. Thanks to the success of the Skyhook system, the UK expands the project, creating plans for the Martian moon Phobos to be used as a supertether to explore as far as Saturn, and Asteroid Mining Project, aiming to use tethers to mine asteroids. Russia and India are both accepted into the Skyhook project, but are told it can not be used for militaristic purposes, only for colonisation and construction.
    • A Clearer View of Skyhook:With both tethers in orbit, the Skyhook Project expands to stage 2. The nations participating has expanded to include Russia and India, the former providing aerospace engineers to help us. Stage 2 consists of upgrades to the existing tethers and spacecraft to reduce travel time even further, an improved training system to help pilots learn how to access the Skyhook, a supertether on Phobos to launch spacecraft as far as Saturn and Mercury, mini-tethers which can be unfurled with automation to help satellites mine asteroids and potentially commercial usage of the tethers. An even more ambitious stage 3 is revealed, plannning to use tethers to launch as far as Neptune,tethers around Venus and Mercury,improved spacecraft and the development of the Skyhook Sytem into a proper transport network for international use.
  • Britain to Space: Economic activity in space is allowed, allowing UK Aerospace company Flamebird to begin mining materials on the moon in British territory, including titanium, silicon, rare-earth metals, lunar ice and helium-3, which are exported back to Earth or other lunar colonies. [SECRET] Two satellites, nicknamed Wolf and Bear, are launched into space. They appear to be studying the Earth's atmosphere to help reverse climate change. Although they indeed do this, Wolf is secretly a weaponised spy satellite and Bear is a weapon satellite. Wolf is equipped with electromagnetic dazzling devices and the UV-Micro beam. In event of activation,it can use its devices to turn off al electricity and radio communications in a radius of 20 miles, and unleash waves of UV light and microwaves onto an area of 8 miles radius, injuring anyone nearby and killing anyone caught in the direct blast. Bear is armed with 5 laser cannons and an infrared beam, it can target a specific region of 18 miles radius and heat it up to create an explosion equal to 5 thermobaric nuclear bombs. They can only be switched on with the permission of the Prime Minister and were launched to counter the threats posed by Japan and possibly Russia. [END SECRET]
  • Experiments on Antimatter: After the purchase of the antimatter bomb from China, the UK and China quickly build the Antimatter Containment and Research Facility, situated in a remote undisclosed area. [SECRET] The facility is a special underground facility, located just 20 miles south of Liverpool, in the countryside to reduce casualties should an accident occur. With antimatter research only in basic form, the UK begins studying the antimatter bomb and learning how the bomb works, so that the UK may also be able to utilise antimatter technology. One such planned technology is the antimatter ray, which researchers at Liverpool Physics Particle Synthesiser Laboratory deem ‘possible, but only in space’. It works by firing a stream of concentrated antimatter particles. Upon hitting the target, it creates a chain reaction of explosions, destroying the target. It has been recommended to use as an anti-asteroid weapon. The LPPSL begins synthesising more antimatter for such purposes. [END SECRET]
  • The Cornwall City Project: Despite the massive technological advancements made by the UK and increases in GDP and HDI, Cornwall remains one of the worse off areas. To help improve the economy and living standards, the government proposes the Cornwall City Project. Planned to house 3.21 million people, the city will have driverless and flying car infrastructure, access to the local Hyperloop, large green spaces and the first city with its own spaceport. It generates income through tourism and transport services. A recent poll showed most Cornish people were supportive of the project.
  • Rise of the Military-Part 2: A government scientist demonstrates his UV weaponry. The first weapon emits flashes of concentrated UV lights, which are powerful enough to damage tanks, disable robots and knock out or kill soldiers in exoskeleton armour. The second is a UV-Microwave laser fired at a high concentration at a target. It requires less power than the current laser cannon in service and can disrupt radio frequencies and electrical signals. Fitted to the chassis of a Ripple tank, the cannon destroyed oncoming swarms of drones and robots, exploded a lorry and disrupted signal needed by robots to communicate with each other. The government hopes to use this weaponry on the battlefield. At sea, the HMS William V is commissioned. It will join HMS Charles III (the first British nuclear powered aircraft carrier, commissioned 2047) and HMS Duke of Cambridge (commissioned 2056) as part of the UK’s aircraft carrier fleet. It can carry 80 fixed wing aircraft, 25 helicopters and 30 drones and is the largest aircraft carrier in commission. It is nuclear powered, and armed with ten Scorcher laser cannons, designed to take down enemy drones and planes and five Tortoise CIWS for close range combat. It will be followed by the HMS King George VII Megacarrier, which is currently near completion and planned to be commissioned in 2079.
  • Down with Japan!: After the assassination of Yuji Shunsen, uproar breaks out across nation. 'A STEP TOO FAR', 'ENOUGH IS ENOUGH' and 'DOWN WITH SHUNSEN' floods social media like a tsunami. Protests occur in major cities such as London, Liverpool, Leeds, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Oxford and Bristol. Protestors burn Japanese flags and pictures of Prime Minister Shunsen in public. They throw dummies of Shunsen onto bonfires or throw them into the Thames. Japanese minorities find themselves under attack, though to stop this, Parliament passes a law prosecuting all those guilty of hate crimes against the Japanese minorities will be prosecuted for 12 years. Prime minister Parker made a televised speech, condemning Prime Minister Shunsen's actions but telling protestors to direct their anger at Shunsen's government, not the Japanese. However, with the death of Hoshido Shunsen, the protests die down and are replaced by celebrations of the death of the authoritarian nationalist prime minister. However, there are worries that a similar terrorist attack could happen, with comparisons being drawn with 9/11.


International Affairs (Diplomacy):


  • Russia: Prime Minister Parker and King George VII both express their condolences to President Navalny about the loss of his son, granddaughter, and mother in a few days, and wish that he is mentally and physically well. Prime minister Parker said, “We will not tolerate assassination at all, and we are very saddened to hear of the loss of President Navalny’s mother just in a matter of days of his son and granddaughter. Our thoughts will be with the President of Russia, and we hope his mental health is well.” To express support, people in London lit candles in Green Park. Furthermore, the UK Government accepts Russia into the Skyhook project.
  • China and CANZUK: We thank China and CANZUK for their support in helping the Stage 1 of the Skyhook Project and would like to ask if they would be happy to continue participating in Stage 2.
  • India: The British government grants permission for India to participate in the Skyhook Project and also agree to help finance their gigacity project.
  • Japan: The UK enacts Emergency International Barrier Alert (EIBA) after the assassination and terrorism occurring in Japan. EIBA is a state of emergency enacted against countries which pose a high amount of risk to the UK or the world. In short, EIBA enacted the following:
    • Diplomatic relations ended with Japan entirely, and all ambassadors and all UK residents in Japan are immediately evacuated.
    • All collaboration with Japan, whether militaristic, diplomatic or scientific, ended.
    • Sanctions are emplaced on Japan.
    • All flights to and from Japan are barred, this includes space travel.
    • Japan is banned from accessing the Skyhook and receiving British Extraterrestrial Exports.
      • UPDATE: The UK has decided to keep EIBA on Japan in place until next year.
  • France:In response to the insult by Seigneur Bardella about 'racial debauchery' in the UK, the British government tells the French government to 'stop spreading false lies'. [SECRET] In response, France is placed on Potential EIBA target List. [END SECRET]

Internal Affairs:

  • In April, the Japanese government introduces the "Special Law on the Protection of Migrants" which, after some revision, will remain effective until 2075. It states that all those who are either Japanese citizens who have immigrated to a new country or are of Japanese descent and are facing hardship and scrutiny may freely return to the mainland. They will be provided with adequate housing, education, electricity, and financial compensation. Japan's new law aims to offer sanctuary to people who feel the "harsh conditions" in their adopted countries and want to return to Japan.
    • Tens of thousands of Japanese citizens and those of Japanese descent are migrating back to the mainland. The government welcomes them with open arms.
  • The Japan Defense Agency (JDA) reported in an August 5 press release that the Japanese government is considering the possible weaponization of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) technology to “provide new security capabilities to the Japan Self Defense Forces.” The technology, if successfully developed for its intended use, would be used in a wide range of military applications including:
    • Air, land, and sea defense
    • Electronic warfare, including hacking, electronic jamming, and other measures to disable enemy weapons systems
    • Sensors, including radar systems
    • Surveillance
    • Anti-aircraft warfare
      • According to the press release, the AFSOJ plans to conduct the first practical test of the technology in the first half of the fickle year of 2073, including the possible deployment of EMP weapons to Japan, such as grenades, "shock-weapons" or "stun-guns", and more. EMP weapons are also intended to increase Japan’s defense capability to deal with the growing threat of space-based and cyber-based weapons that potentially could affect the country’s critical infrastructure.
  • [SECRET] Yuji and Taro Shunsen have a heated argument with their brother, claiming that Hoshino is "running their country into the ground" and "making no recourse." Hoshino fires back, stating, "The last our great country was totally unified was over a century ago. I'm not running it into the ground. In fact, we're rising up. Just you wait..." [SECRET]
    • A mysterious letter arrives for Yuji Shunsen at his office. It has no stamp, nor official logo or sender. Instead it is simply signed "30". Transcribed into Japanese, it reads:
      • Letter from @^#*@&*, this is to the New Shin Kokka Ochō 新国家王朝 Committee member Yuji Shunsen, brother of Hoshino and Taro Shunsen. I will only refer to myself as Kai. This letter is very urgent, and we request your utmost focus on reading it. I am a member of a collective of worldwide activists that seek mass awareness and revolution against what we perceive as corrupt entities, while attempting to maintain anonymity. For security reasons, I will not disclose the name of my organization. Here's the deal: we understand what is happening within Japan. Nationalism is sweeping the streets. The nation is falling. It's becoming similar to the North Korean regime, and may I remind you of your nation's past? We also understand you have had troubles with your brother on how to best run the Japanese government. I have a message for the New Shin Kokka Ochō. I am calling for you to take up arms against the corrupt dictators who have stolen your government from you and your people. Wouldn't you like to see a change? We are calling on you to create a new political party, and run against your brother. Make it seem like a friendly race. In the background, we will work to give your party the more votes. We will pull the strings to your advantage. You either do this, or live long enough to see your country in ruin. The choice is yours. If you accept, call this number now, make sure you aren't being listened to -- [[1]], then dial 0. Good day."
        • Yuji thinks for a moment. Hoshido has been nothing but trouble. He is turning traditional Japanese allies into enemies. The whole world is at their throats. Japanese citizens and those of Japanese descent have been brutally beaten, and in some cases, murdered. It all comes back to one man, Yuji and Taro's brother, Hoshido Shunsen. He picks up the phone, and dials the number...
      • Several weeks later, Japanese media outlets report that a new political party has been created, called the Tokyo Grand Party 東京グランドパーティー. This is unusual, as Prime Minister Shunsen has made efforts to squash any opposition to his party. He had even reworked the constitution to put total power into his hands. Through the coming months, it starts to gain traction, with full-fledged members that were previously disillusioned with Hoshido's regime. It also gains the support of Japanese revolutionary groups, with rampant amounts of activism on social media and on the internet to support the Tokyo Grand Party and its cause. Protests against Prime Minister Shunsen, not seen since 2070 when he was first elected, make headlines once again.
        • [SECRET] Behind the scenes, the individual known as "Kai" and his organization pull strings in the Japanese government. They secretly recruit citizens off the street, as well as former members of the now-defunct political parties [SECRET].
      • Protestors clash with loyalist parties in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Hiroshima.
      • [SECRET] Confused as to what is going on, Prime Minister Shunsen secretly begins to investigate the new Tokyo Grand Party, feeling they are a growing threat to his rule. He makes use of intelligence agencies, as well as independent spies and hackers, to conduct espionage against the party [SECRET]
        • In September, he makes a horrifying discovery: his brother Yuji is at the center of it all. Outraged and labelling his brother a "traitor", he orders the assassination of his brother.
      • [SECRET] On the evening of October 13, Yuji Shunsen is kidnapped from his home in the dead of night by hired guerillas loyal to Prime Minister Shunsen. The group of men take him to a secure location where they meet with other members of their faction. After failing to extract any information, Yuji is shot and killed in cold blood [SECRET].
        • Yuji's execution is just the beginning. One by one, people vanish off the street. Out of fear, they admit to being revolutionaries and protestors. They are promptly executed, or sent into forced labor.
      • Without any stable leadership, the Tokyo Grand Party is now defunct, after being active for only 6 months.
  • There are no mentions of Hoshido Shunsen's death to the Japanese public, nor is there a declared National Day of Mourning.
    • Taro Shunsen is elected the new Prime Minister of Japan.

International Affairs (Diplomacy):

  • Regarding the attempted assassination of Russian President Prime Minister Zakhar Navalny by a Japanese national, Prime Minister Shunsen remains silent. He acts like it never happened.
  • At the end of the year, an angered Prime Minister Shunsen refuses to admit what has happened in Japan. Instead, he makes great strides in limiting relations and trade between Japan and other countries. He also signs into law an order that makes all foreign nationals barred from entering Japan, while common Japanese people are kept from leaving the country. Japan goes dark.
  • Taro Shunsen does not accept the offer to revive his brother to digital consciousness, nor does he comment any further on it other than, "I'm glad he's dead."

2074

Storyline

Some have called 2073 the craziest year of the 21st century, even surpassing 2020. Japan's swift rise of nationalism and militarism was officially cut short when Prime Minister Hoshido Shunsen was killed in a devastating terrorist attack on Japanese soil. Although Shunsen's death marked the end of his militaristic regime, something not seen since the days of World War II, the results of his actions still loom. It is now up to his brother Taro Shunsen to restore Japan's place in the world, if this can even be achieved at all. Meanwhile, presidential elections in the United States and India kicked off with Ted Franklin, a Democratic senator from Washington state, is gaining more and more support, and India's Ahyan Indu, President and CEO of Indu Industries and one of the richest people in the world, has hinted at his aspirations to run. Russia experienced tragedy when an assassination attempt on President Zakar Navalny was made. Luckily, he survived, but his son and granddaughter were not so lucky. As a result, Russia joined the anti-Japanese protests that were now occurring on a global scale.

Meanwhile, several updates in the breakthrough of the British-led Skyhook Project have been made, as well as with Chinese antimatter technology and India's new environmentally-safe Gigacity. France imposes several political reforms, including a ban on individuals with less than 75% human matter within themselves. A cultural-movement also begins to take place, starting with French singer Ella Delané's track "Jours sans fin" (Endless Days) which rises to the top of the charts in most of Europe. It's emphasis is on the lost era, defined in pop culture as being the years before 2010. With their neo-nostalgic clothing, hairstyles and music having inspiration from New Wave and Disco.

Internal Affairs:

  • Ted Franklin secures the Democratic nomination over his two of his closest rivals, Montana senator Luca Francis and former Florida congresswoman Allison Sharpton, in a competitive primary that featured the largest field of candidates for any political party in the modern era of American politics. Franklin will face Republican congressman and former mayor of Portland Iker Horne, also running on the DCCC’s Patriot ballot, while Alexander Jenkins announces he will not run for reelection, claiming, "My time has come. Gotta pass the mantle to someone else."
    • Franklin promises to be a powerful voice against “corporate greed and corporate welfare”, even as Democratic congress members push for a federal budget deal that will increase Pentagon spending by $25 billion. He also responds to claims of "racial debauchery" made by France, as well as several members of the Republican party. An African-American himself, Franklin states that, "The topic of racial inequality has been a long-fought battle in our country. We will not rest until everyone, of all races, is well-set. While great strides have been made in the past, they were not enough. I firmly believe that if we work together as Americans, we can end this plague in American society once and for all." Meanwhile, Sara Anderson posts to her Instagram account, "It is time for America to stand on its own two feet."
    • On November 6, Election Day in the United States, Ted Franklin manages to win the election with 271 votes, compared to Iker Thorne's 201. There are celebrations across the country due to Franklin being only the third African-American President of the United States in years, the last two being Barack Obama and Kamala Harris. He, alongside Sara Anderson, will be sworn in on January 20, 2075. Alexander Jenkins comments on Twitter on the victory of Franklin and Anderson, saying, "Congratulations to my good friends Teddy Franklin and Sara Anderson for their victory last night! Show them some love everyone! Our country is in good hands."
  • The Vertis (Verloren tijdperk) cultural movement, with roots in the Netherlands and France, makes its way over to the United States from Europe. Many people, especially teenagers and young adults, embrace neo-nostalgic clothing, hairstyles, and music from the 1960s-1990s with inspiration from the grunge, punk, and skater scenes. Activities such as skateboarding become popular once again, as well as a renewed interest in retro video games and art. DIY culture also begins to take shape in cities across the nation, including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York City, New Orleans, Boston, and Orlando.
    • Music genres such as rock, heavy metal, grunge, and punk begin to become popular in the United States again. Bands such as Titan, Days of the New, Scarborough, Maverick, Veni Vidi Vici, and Viper are signed to major record labels and become superstars.
    • People are spreading awareness of widespread social issues, including racial inequality and discrimination, climate change, human sexuality, censorship, A.I. rights, use of technology for beneficial purposes, and even a rebellion against the established social order.
  • The Pentagon has announced plans to completely re-scope the U.S. military, stating the need to create and invest in new technologies and strategies for the future. As a result, the Department of Defense released the "Annual Defense Strategy Report," on Wednesday, which outlines the changes the Pentagon is planning to make, how they plan to use their budget, as well as where they believe the U.S. needs to focus on security and the future of the military.
    • One of their first measures is to update the uniform of the United States Armed Forces. The prior uniform, the Army Combat Uniform (ACU), although practical, was very uncomfortable and sluggish to wear. On March 13, the United States Army debuts the updated uniform, the United States Honor Attire. It is a mix between the uniforms worn by American soldiers during World War I and the Vietnam War, with a black bulletproof vest and either a green or black handkerchief covering their mouths and noses. The new uniform has a much more positive reception.
    • The United States Armed Forces begin to experiment with cyberwarfare, such as drones and semi-autonomous vehicles. The newly developed Northrop Grumman BQM-74A Chiron, for example, is an updated aerial reconnaissance vehicle that will allow the military to spy on its adversaries from afar, even from the far reaches of space. Work begins on integrating it with satellites that will be sent into orbit by December.

    • Recovery of Our First Lady - Our First Lady Agrafina Navalnya has recovered from the assassination attempt, now known as Krasnogorsk Incident, named after where Our President formerly lived before the attempt. However, Our First Lady has suffered permanent hearing loss and reduced mobility on her left arm due to the fragments of the explosion. (Ayla is the name of Our President's granddaughter, not his wife)
    • 2074 Russian Presidential Elections - Our President Zakhar Navalny won the 2074 Elections with him winning 57% of the vote, ensuring his second term in office. He can hold power until the year 2082, when the 3-term limit is reached. Russia has reverted to a four-year term since Our President's father Alexei revoked the six-year term in 2042.
    • [SECRET] Research into M3C Project - We would come up with a feasible size for our Mini Death Lazer, with the Death Laser itself being no more than the size of 5km when the laser hits Earth. The barrel can be no more than the size of a Marble. We are now investigating what energy can be used to power the Death Laser. [SECRET]
    • Birth of Our President's granddaughter - Our President's daughter, Yelena gave birth to Natasha Nesterova on March 14th, 2074. She caused quite a stir on the stage when she went into labour during a speech about American Socialism in Moscow. She finished it before being transported to a hospital. Russian social media exploded with footage of her finishing the speech in pain, with her last words of that speech being: "I'm not sure if you realize this, but I can feel that my baby has decided to try and come out and listen to my speech. They can't for today, but I assure you, I will let my new child listen to my next speech and without giving me more pain than the Japanese when they hear the death of Shunsen. Thank you all!"

  • Internal Affairs:
    • The Chinese Secure Communications Project will allow China's communications to be 100% secure and free from espionage or foreign spying. The technology should allow China to launch themselves into further Quantum Supremacy, but this is disputed by many scholars around the world. The network will also be available for Chinese citizens at a basic level, less advanced than governmental networking. This does mean, however, China will now have no way to breach communications with citizens, starting a new wave of lessening digital overreach and restriction by the Ministry of Telecom and Communications. The network may also be used by companies to provide easier and safer communications, which should allow less IP theft and Industrial sabotage. Overall, this is a great shift in the "big brother" mentality previously held by the Chinese Government.
    • President Yuan signs the Digital Freedom Act, which formally ends all spying on Chinese citizens via digital means. This act is signed to promote China's increasing shift towards respecting citizens rights of privacy, and promote increasing liberalization of the government. This effectively ends the so called "Great Firewall" as well, allowing Internet freedom across China. President Yuan remarks on this, saying "We would like to open our doors to the rest of the world's internet. For too long, Chinese citizens have had to sit and watch filtered means of digital content, in the hopes they would not be indoctrinated. We now realize this was a mistake, and allowing it to continue would be a cancer to digital freedom within our country. We are officially allowing all internet into China, this includes all businesses webpages and government sites."
    • The state of emergency in China is lifted, as it is confirmed the likelihood of a terrorist attack or attack in general is very unlikely. Many have complained that the lockdown has gone on for too long, and in seeing this, the government has lifted it. All flights are allowed to fly again, all trade is allowed, and movement outside the country is allowed. The Chinese Transparency Organization, a massive non-profit that advocates for government transparency within China, comments China became like that of a North Korea during the lockdown, with President Yuan refuting and condemning the statement. The lockdown lasted nearly 8 months.
    • China has reverted to a state of carbon neutrality again, after the lockdown is lifted. New predictions from various Chinese energy think-tanks show that China will become carbon negative by 2076 if current trends keep up. This is good news for many Chinese environmentalists, who have been waiting for this announcement for a while. They are disappointed however, as the previous estimate was by 2075. The reason for the increase of one year is Chinese companies have to deal with increased demand and use of energy after the lockdown has ended.
  • International Affairs:
    • President Yuan comments, although late, on the death of the Japanese Prime Minister, saying "We send our well wishes to the people of Japan, and to the Shunsen Family. We send our moral support and well wishes in these times of tragedy within the country. We hope the people of Japan can come together and mend their country again under Taro's leadership." [SECRET] President Yuan says this, but means very different. He made the speech to show Chinese support for Japan, but not the government under Hoshido. His advisors told him to maintain the façade of the Chinese government's support for Hoshido, so they don't suspect any planning done previously by China and The United States to assassinate Hoshido, which ultimately failed. [SECRET]
    • President Yuan sends his congratulations to President Zakhar Navalny for winning the reelection in Russia. He states he hopes Russia and China can continue their track record of diplomacy and support for one another. He also congratulates President Zakhar Navalny for his granddaughter Natasha's birth, and sends a letter wishing their family well. President Yuan sends his well wishes for further recovery of First Lady Agrafina Navalnya and pledges support to Russia should they need it. In a statement, "I congratulate the President on his reelection and hope to have the diplomacy between our two great countries continue. I also wish the First Lady and the President's Granddaughter well, and on behalf of the Chinese people, offer support to Russia and their people should they ever need it."

  • Defence Affairs:
    • Navy: The HMAS Colvin nuclear-powered aircraft carrier enters into service with the Royal Australian Navy. Two more aircraft carriers of the Colvin-class are under construction. As the Colvin-class is purpose built for small to medium sized drone fleets, the aircraft carriers themselves are notable smaller and cheaper to manufacture and operate than conventional aircraft carriers. Separately, construction of 5 new stealth destroyers begins with their class designation remaining classified at present. Each of the 5 stealth destroyers is equipped with next-generation anti-ship cruise missiles capable of travelling close to the surface of the ocean at Mach 5. This is part of a general upsizing of the RAN and retirement of older ships. [Secret] The new destroyers come equipped with more advanced versions of existing holographic technology for the purpose of augmented reality navigation and information display. This includes easily accessible information/command terminals throughout the ships. [/Secret]
    • Army & Marines: The Army's experimental HUD units exit the testing phase and have begun to be issued to both Army and Marine units for training. Separately, the Army creates the Australian Rangers Regiment, a regiment of 432 men, trained and experienced in high-mobility long-range desert patrol and troop transport. The Regiment is expected to patrol the Australian outback and will be vital in the event of an invasion of mainland Australia.
    • Lunar Outpost: [Secret] The Australian Defence Force (ADF) constructs a small joint-service outpost on the Lunar surface staffed by 9 Marines from the Marine Intelligence Unit (MIU) and 4 Australian Secret Intelligence Service (ASIS) personnel. Its purpose is surveillance and intelligence collection. A full-sized military base is considered impractical and unnecessary at present. [/Secret]

  • In March, French Billionaire Technocrat Alexis Genet and owner of Rddt announces his new VertualNet project. A 500 Exabyte simulatory space in which a simplified and codified membrane (containing basic brain functions and self-generated personality) would be placed within a vertual world structured to allow long term usage and entertainment. VertualNet is set for release on December 31st 2077, but already the French Government have launched investigations and legal challenges due to the VertualNet not being a sponsored Government based project.
  • Now senational Vertis Star Ella Delané goes on a global tour during the Summer as youth across France come out in droves to mass parties and concerts. The Minister of Culture and Enlightenment calls the Vertis movement one of "primitive nostalgia and rebelliousness, a scurge on the future generations which must be combated". But for now the Vertis continue to embrace the past with old icons like France Gall, Kate Ryan, Vanessa Paradis and Avril Lavagne all being embraced by the Vertis, especially its female members. Not only this but new Vertis singers like Serge "Sycho" Mallet and Emma Aveline have reached as high as Ella Delané in the 2074 French Popcharts.
  • Political reform continues within the localities of France as Church diosease tied now with Mayoralties in order to "Moralize on the local level". Many atheists call this a invasion of local politics with church cronies. This comes with a long drift by the Seigneur towards the Catholic Church during the last 20 years of his dominion over France, Pope Sergius VI would visit Paris in November and meet with the Seigneur, describing him as, "a loyal servant of our lord in heaven".
  • Author of 'Destin de la civilisation' and leader of the European Federalist Party based in Geneva, that being French-born F. N. Charpentier, dies aged 90. His writings lead to his expulsion from France by then State-President Marine Le Pen in 2033 and his immigration to Switzerland where even after the collapse of the European Union he would continue to advocate for a United States of Europe.

External Affairs

  • The French Army launches a EOIR (Earth to Orbit Intercontinental Rocket) at Tindouf, the Algerian town-turned military centre, in retaliation for Algerian Government assistance to Black Nationalist Organisations operating in and around southern France.

  • Internal Affairs:
    • Ahyan Indu has won the Presidential Election, with 65% of the vote. He selected Ansu Taij as his running mate, for the Vice Presidential Ticket. President Indu ran on a future oriented platform, under the recently formed Forward Party. He will break several records on his way to the Office of The President of India, being the youngest President at 36, the richest President, and the first non majority party President. Many political scientists and polling data from India cite the win as due to Indu's young age, progressive viewpoints, and his ability to lead. Vice President Ansu Taij, is similar to Indu in many ways. He is 43 years old, relatively young for a Vice President, very progressive on his viewpoints, and has business and leadership experience. The Vice President will also break several records as well, being the first 50 percenter to hold office, one of the youngest to hold the office, and the first non majority party Vice President.
    • Vice President Taij releases a statement on what it means to be a 50 percenter, saying "A 50 percenter is somebody who has a 50% artificial body. I was in the Indian Armed Forces, doing a routine patrol of the Indo-Pakistani Border. I was in a squad with 5 other soldiers, each of us having to be on the lookout for any suspicious activities going on. During the patrol, one of the soldiers in our pack stepped on what appeared to be a landmine. I was the only one in the group who was trained on Bomb Defusal, so it was up to me to try to save this soldiers life. During the process of defusing the bomb, I must have triggered a fail-deadly system, or what some people call a "dead man's switch". This ultimately set off the bomb, which caused me to make a decision, to jump on the bomb. Just to note, in the military they provide us Flak Jackets which help absorb impacts from explosives or shrapnel, however, they are mean to protect from explosions more than a few meters away. The Flak Jacket did it's job somewhat, in the fact that none of the others standing near the explosion were injured seriously. I was, however, not so fortunate. In the end, I lost a significant amount of brain matter, almost all major organs were dead or dying quickly, and no one thought I would survive. Thanks to the good graces of technological advancements, I did survive. This was about 20 years ago, so technology on the issue of artificial life was very new. Thanks to new advances though, the early Indian Transhumanist Association decided to operate on me as a sort of pilot project. After two hard years of recovering and many prayers, I was well enough to walk and leave the hospital under supervision. It was a hard and hellish process, but I eventually made it to the other side, where I am today. I still have surgeries occasionally to add new functions as the technology updates, but I am fully recovered now."
    • After that statement from the Vice President, support pours in, and the administrations approval rating shoots up. Taij had never told his whole story, save for a few family members, to the public. He had kept it hidden for long, in fear for what people may have thought over the years. Transhumanism spreads faster than ever before across India, with many sharing stories similar to that of The Vice President's.
    • The Indian Antimatter Research Commission publishes their research study. The IARC successfully has come up with a way to produce antimatter at a very cheap rate. Antimatter can now be produced at half what was available in 2073. This means 1 gram of antimatter originally now has the power of 4 grams of antimatter now. India hopes to use this technology to power new spacecraft and more efficiently deal with Climate Change. [SECRET] The IARC as promised also published their results on the Antimatter bomb, stating that it is feasible and can start production and testing this year.[SECRET]
  • International Affairs:
    • President Indu makes a statement of diplomacy, stating "We are looking forward to a new wave of diplomacy within this new Administration. Some countries will like our methods, and some will not, but we can assure everyone we will be peaceful and look to make way towards international prosperity. We regret the over aggressive actions taken by the previous administration in regards to Russia and Japan, and will try to do our best to make peace with them. We would also like to congratulate Ted Franklin for winning the Presidential Election of the United States, and will do our best to see more gains made between our two great nations. That is all."
    • President Indu states India will open up it's antimatter technology to the world for trade. He remarks that the technology is, "Cheaper than any other nation, and is the work of the technological revolution in India." He also points out "We will incentivize other nations through economic benefits and tax write-offs for our new gigacity, as well as coproduce infrastructure at a much cheaper rate than usual."

  • The Skyhook-Stage 2: Upgrades are made to the existing tethers in space, while the first mini-tether is deployed in action to mine asteroids in the asteroid belt. The Phobos supertether begins construction, though this is anticipated to be harder than the other tether constructions as the rope will be attaching to an object in space which is in orbit and it is not a rotating tether, which are cheaper to produce. A new set of space jets, Starlight v2, are deployed. They are much faster than their predecessors and reduce the journey to 2 months and 10 days.
  • Experiments on Antimatter: [SECRET] A prototype of the antimatter ray is created and tested, despite various problems encountered. The ray passes the tests and begins development into an actual weapon. The resulting explosion caused by the ray was equivalent to 0.541 megatons of TNT. The ray is currently going extensive upgrades to match 1.2 megatons of TNT. The antimatter bomb has been fully studied to the extent that it is possible to replicate the bomb. A British antimatter bomb was recently made. [END SECRET]
  • The Cornwall City Project: The Cornwall City begins construction, with the first areas of the central section being completed. The Hyperloop Station is the first part which is constructed.
  • Rise of the Military-Part 3: The UV laser weaponry is utilised in 20% of all units, including usage on tanks, in laser guns, aircraft and naval weaponry. There is an official review and restructuring of the armed forces. The Royal Marines become a separate unit from the Royal Navy and merge with the SAS and SBS to increase their combat firepower and become the Royal Special Forces. All sectors receive major upgrades, including a new rule that all officers should be equipped with the new Holo Combat Helmet Lenses. The lenses are equipped with AR pop ups, allowing them to scan for threats. The Lenses can detect infrared, ultraviolet and microwave radiation, allowing them to detect camouflaged soldiers. It is also equipped with radar sensors as an effective counter to the Light Bender in China, for we fear the technology may fall in the wrong hands. At sea, the Oliver Kingston class Destroyer comes into active service, with the first 2 being HMS Oliver Kingston and HMS Keir Starmer, named after some of the UK's most successful prime ministers.

Whilst Migration has slowed down, Right-Wing parties such as the Sweden Democrats and Alternative for Sweden still have popularity and have largely put themselves against the Republican Movement and for the Monarchy of Sweden and Queen Estelle. Johansson responded saying that his nation doesn't need a monarchy and wanted the people to decide if they should abolish it or not.
  • Healthcare the Sweden Democrats got controversial when they claimed that migrants shouldn't get social welfare, this started fights between Sweden Democrats Members and Left-Wingers. Johansson sided with the Leftist parties and said the Sweden Democrats would leave them the wrong way and would turn Sweden into an authoritarian nation. Sweden Democrats leader Erik Linde criticized Johansson for his remarks.

International Affairs:

  • United States: Sweden hopes to strengthen its alliance with the United States. The Prime Minister claimed that relations had lowered in recent years and wants to allow U.S. Military Bases in Sweden.
    • United States Response: President Jenkins agrees that relations have lowered to a negligible point, and makes it a priority to strengthen ties with not only Sweden, but with Europe as a whole. He hopes he can pass this same point over to president-elect Ted Franklin. Jenkins also agrees to allow U.S military bases in Sweden.
  • Japan: We congratulate Taro Shunsen and hope his reign will be less nationalist than his late brother.

It will be no easy feat, however, considering how close Mercury is to the Sun. The possible spacecraft will need to be equipped with a large array of cooler panels to possibly withstand solar winds due to a lack of atmosphere and the planet's immense heat. Astronauts will also need to be equipped with a rapidly cooled suit that will help keep their body in a stable condition.
    • A specially-designed spacecraft, called ECHO-34d, is being constructed as a joint effort between the United States, Japan, and India. It is expected to be fully operational in February of 2076.
    • Space-X, headed by Randall Musk, the grandson of Elon Musk, reaches a landmark deal with NASA, giving them access to their INTERSTELLAR-3 spacecraft to transport supplies to Mercury.

  • Domestic Affairs:
    • President Indu announces that the Indian Antimatter Research Commission has completed research into a new anti-matter bomb that could be domestically produced by India. The "बमों का देवता" or God of Bombs, is projected to have a 200 megaton capacity, double that of the Tsar Bomb's theoretical maximum capacity during the Soviet Era. A test will be publicly conducted later this year, to make sure the bomb is feasible and safe to store.
    • The Indian Government starts funding a Made in India 2.0 Initiative. Made in India 2.0 is a revival of the same initiative around 2030, which proved vital to the countries growth and severed it's reliance on outside countries. This new program will allow tax benefits and special status for companies that manufacture and produce within India's borders, as well as ensure enhanced quality checking for foreign materials and products entering the country. This will not have any negative effect on international trade, in fact, it should enhance it. Foreign companies can apply for the program as well, with terms and conditions.
    • The 50 Percenters Movement gains traction further, after the Vice President's speech in the previous year. Due to this, Vice President Taij and President Indu sign the Transhumanist Sanctuary Act. The Transhumanist Sanctuary Act will relax restrictions put on Transhumanists, which were heavily enforced in past administrations. Some of these oppressive laws included, government watchlist for transhumanist individuals that restricted their movements within the country, a ban on the adoption of children, a non-acknowledgement of transhumanists as full Indian citizens, and a marriage ban. The Act also provides reparations to eligible individuals, effectively reverses all laws discriminatory to transhumanists, and extends Universal Healthcare to transhumanist beings.
    • Okya Mantri is elected by the Indian National Congress to become Prime Minister of India. He is a former veteran of the Indian Army, and a schoolteacher as well, before he was a politician. The Indian National Congress is the Majority Party, with the BJP losing members and political clout. The Socialist Party, Forward Party, and Moderate Party, all make significant gains in both Lower and Upper Houses.
    • Five Indian States strongly controlled by the BJP pass regional laws which effectively invalidate the Transhumanist Sanctuary Act. These states do this in opposition to what they refer to as "increasing socialism, both statewide and national." These legislative acts are quickly challenged by regional Transhumanist Groups, such as the Gujarat Transhumanist Comission and the Support Council for Transhumanist Kartanakans. Many of these cases eventually go to the Supreme Court of India, where the counter legistlation is deemed unconstitutional and unjust, with 27 judges favoring, and 23 against. This provides the judicial majority needed to strike down these acts, and the decision is celebrated by many, Transhumanist Groups and Supporters of Vice President Taij and opposed by few, mostly Hindu nationalists and extreme-right BJP members.
    • A new Indian Startup Company emerges from the Made in India 2.0 Initiative called Soch Inc. Through various rounds of funding from some of India's top angel investors and venture capitalists, Soch quickly becomes the 5th largest startup in India's history. According to IndianStartupsTracker.com, the company raised 50 Billion Dollars through 17 rounds of funding. From there, through 10 more rounds of funding, another 57.2 Billion Dollars of money was raised, bringing the total up to 107.2 Billion Dollars. The company was started in Bangalore in 2067 to provide crowdfunding to Indian entrepeneurs, and then buy the rights to those projects. Soch is a massive crowdfunding platform, similar to an Indiegogo or Kickstarter which has so far raised over 100 billion collectively. Some of the projects they have bought include the Rupee Rocket Project, which aims to dramatically lower the cost of launching rockets into space, the Alternative Fuel Initiative, which looks to provide cheap and accesible fuel to those who may not be able to afford it, and the Perfect AI Production Studio, which looks to create the first "actorless" movie, with all actors being AI and based in CGI and advanced Holographics. Soch is looking to go public soon, and some finance analysts predict it may raise over 200% of it's value through an IPO.
    • Soch Inc. creates a new social media app, called Sochi. Through heavy spending on advertising with slogans such as "This Company is For The People" or "Crowdfunding is the Future" they gain an astronomical 200 million users through a period of three months. Sochi is similar to the early 2010's app Wechat, which was a platform that allowed users to talk to eachother, videochat, post stories, or pay money. Sochi is a "free speech platform" which appeals to many of India's youth, as most popular social media's are restricted. Sochi quickly grows to become the number one downloaded app in India, adding another 150 million user within another month.
    • The ISRO starts the Mission to Mercury Fund, with the goal of allowing companies to participate in the joint mission between JAXA and NASA, under the ISRO's command. Three companies will be chosen, and will receive government contracts on future space endeavors. President Indu decides to create a ten man commission to vote and decide on which three companies will receive these contracts. Among those on the commission are Rakesh Singh, a top astrophysicist at the University for Aerospace Studies Hyderabad, Jivin Virat, Commander of the Indian Space Defense Force, and Pathram Krish, Inventor of the Krish Gun, a type of carried space artillery device, similar to a rifle. President Indu states why he has created a committee, saying "In the interest of fairness and impartiality to all companies involved, I have created this committee out of the finest members of our Aerospace and Astronomy industries and academic studies. These 10 men and women have no involvement with any corporations or companies at this time, and they have been thoroughly vetted to insure there is no bias in the process. I look forward to seeing what the committee decides, and hope cooperation like this can continue on between private and government ventures.
    • President Indu's son Amir Indu, inherits his father's business assets. This is due to a constitutional provision in India, which states "The President, Vice President, Speaker of the House, Prime Minister, or Members of Parliament, shall not, except for limited very limited provisions, be allowed to own business or personal assets during their term of office in the collective amount of 1,000,000$. Any members of government shall be allowed to partition their business or personal assets to another entity for their term, to retain after their term ends. This Provision is intended to end corruption and collusion between businesses and the government, in cases where an event would be likely." President Indu will be allowed to retain his business and personal assets after his term is over, for the time being however, his son has control of the assets.
    • The Times of India writes an article about Amir. "Amir Indu, having just inherited his father's assets and turning 18, starts to get settled within the company. Per his father's instruction, he is to make as minimal and inconsequential decisions as possible with the company and assets. Other than that, he is allowed to do what he pleases. Amir went to one of the top schools in the country, was bright and scored high marks in classes, and was very charismatic. He was very alone as a child however, not having many to understand his remarkable talents, and was always ostracized by peers. He is considered by many to be a genius polymath, even at his young age. He has dabbled in various areas and sciences, such as biology, chemistry, data science, physics, history, and many more. He can speak five languages fluently, Arabic, English, Chinese, Hindi, and Spanish. He can write in 10 more with varying fluency on top of those five, including French, Indonesian, Korean, Japanese, and Russian. Amir is also heavily dedicated to athletics and Martial Arts, having experience in Judo, Karate, Jujitsu, and playing Basketball, International Football, Tennis, and others. When asked who he aspires to be like, Amir said he is inspired by Jose Rizal, a polymath in the 19th century from the Philippines, often considered the national hero of the Philippines."
    • After the article by the Times of India, many question why President Indu is giving his son such a limiting role within Indu Industries and assets of it.
    • Amir Indu holds a public forum, with various investors and high profile business executives lining the room. He is calling this forum to address any questions about various aspects of the company, including new leadership and new changes within the companies structure. Below is a transcript of the event.
      • Reporter 1: What is the new change of structure you speak of?
      • Amir: Great question! One of the major changes we will be making, is to the salary of employees of our company. Salary rates have been highly stagnant within our company, and have not changed in the past years to update the increasing inflation rates. We cannot continue to sit around and act as if we are giving employees of this company the fair pay they deserve. All employees, contracted or not, can expect a 10 percent increase in their paycheck. This will apply across the board, whether the employee is wealthy or poor will not matter.
      • Reporter 2: Many people, online and in various circles, have expressed disappointment and even anger at your limited roll within your own company, due to your father. How would you respond?
      • Amir: I see. While many would likely take this lying down, I will not. I have always been outspoken and confident in my ability, and granted this new position, does not mean my voice will waver. I do tend to agree with the majority crowd, it would be benificial to have a larger position in this company. Many would like to see it, and so would I. I thank all who support me with this endeavor.
      • Reporter 3: With all of these sudden responsibilities, do you feel as if too much is being expected of you?
      • Amir: While that would certainly be a reasonable assumption, that is not the case here. I am glad to embrace the roll, and have been prepared for it much of my young life. What I was not expecting, was the role to be so limiting. I hope my father has more faith in my abilities, and I would ask publicly for him to allow me more leniance. Thank you all!
    • With an abrupt end to the forum, Indian social media platforms blow up. Many scrutinize President Indu, due to the lack of trust with his own son. Amir takes to social media as well, posting "I appreciate all of the concern, but I would ask you all to separate politics from my personal life. What my father does in my life is very separate from his politics, and I would reassure all of you he is going to do the best as President. Just posting this to clear that up." Some of the negative attention ceases, however most still persists. Many are having a hard time understanding why the President would limit someone who is capable.
    • President Indu releases a statement in regards to his son. "I have nothing but the upmost confidence in his ability, but as I am sure many parents can relate to, I want him to tread lightly in the world of business. It is much more viscous than politics, and I do not want it to affect my son as much as it did me. I apologize if it seems like I do not trust him, and I can assure you I most certainly do." After the statement, the Board of Directors for Indu Industries decides to get involved. They vote on allowing Amir Indu into a full capacity as CEO and Owner of Assets, both titles which would effectively grant him a majority share in the company, with the board still allowed to overrule any decision he should make. The board decides, with 14 approving and one abstaining, to allow him title of CEO and the Owner of Assets.
    • President Indu posts on social media, "I respect the decision of the board, and they did what they felt was right." With the decision finalized, Amir Indu becomes the youngest trillionaire in India, a very rare achievement. The first person to reach one trillion dollars net worth was Jeff Bezos in 2026, becoming that wealthy through his many companies. Since 2026, trillionaires have become increasingly common, compared to before. With the advent of Space Mining and CryptoCurrencies, many saw their wealth increase heavily.
    • The India Wealth 100, ran by The Indian Business Media Company, publishes their list for the year 2075. They publish two different lists, one internationally, and one for only India. They rank Abhar Ambani at the top, due to the continued success of Reliance Industries, him being the Grandson of Mukesh Ambani. His estimated combined net worth, as the result of Reliance Industries, investments, and other endeavors, has climbed to 5 Trillion Dollars. He is by far one of the richest men in history, as well as in the world, but this is disputed by other countries. Various sources claim different, some claim Randall Musk as the richest, and some claim Abhar Ambani. Amir Indu is closer to the bottom, with 2.1 Trillion Dollars now to his name. He is ranked 42 on the list of those in India, and 87th internationally. According to the list, India has the most Trillionaires, followed by China and The United States. This is due to India's growth rate being very steady, and age demographics not playing much of a role in birth rate. Many Indian families are still having more than 2 children, due to the increasing wealth. Many demographers have dubbed this the India Cluster, referring to the steady birth rate, which has remained around the same for 50 years.
    • The ISRO announces 2076 will be the Year of Space. A slew of new missions and projects are announced, many of which will use Indian antimatter technology to propel and last longer than previous missions. Some of these missions will be listed here. The Anantata-1 and Anantata-2, or Infinity-1 and Infinity-2 in English, are two space probes intended to travel to the Alpha Centauri A star, which is 4.364 Light years from earth. These will be the first probes launched with antimatter engines, allowing travel speeds unachievable by conventional engines. Experts from the ISRO predict the probes will reach the star by 2082, but say the probes could reach the star quicker, if technology permits. Both probes will be embedded with all sensors necessary and will consist of nano-engraved electronics capable of displaying various information about Earth and it's inhabitants, should other life forms find the probes. The ISRO is also preparing to expand their Mars Colony System, and will possibly add up to 100,000 new eligible citizens to the planet. More missions will be made available to the public in the future. Both probes are planned to launch in 2076, with various other missions to launch at that time as well.
    • The Digital Consciousness Initiative developed by the Artificial Life Institute in Chennai has become available to all citizens. In doing this, many citizens apply for the project, hoping to beat death itself. Multiple reports from the Artificial Life Institute show the device works as expected, and the rate of error or death is 1 in 50 Trillion. Multiple high profile Indian citizens start to sponsor the initiative, as it shows great promise in their eyes. As a product of this, the Digital Consciousness Infrastructure Project is announced, which will allow anyone to create a virtual world at the time of their death, the digital infrastructure for said world, and live in it until they would like to or could be pulled into reality once again. A Virtual Social Network is launched, called the DCI Hub, where many can interact and post with the internet and the live world. This is the first such project in the world.
  • Foreign Affairs:
    • Vice President Taij denounces the French Government's ban on Transhumanists receiving government benefits, calling it "cruel and unjust." In a written statement provided to international press, he states "The French Government has effectively infringed on the rights of Transhuman citizens within their own country. This ban, should it continue to remain, will start France on an irreversible path of unjust punishment for those who may be most vulnerable. I, for example, would not be able to receive government benefits if I were a French citizen, as I am what Indian's refer to as a 50 Percenter. I would not receive vital healthcare, social security, or any other services due to something that is not within my control. That seems just a little unjust if you ask me."
    • President Indu, although late to do so, condemns France's decision to bomb Tindouf. He offers his support for international peace, but does not say much more than that.
    • President Indu shows appreciation for the decreasing hostility of Russia and their military. He remarks "This is good for all of us on the international stage, and it shows their willingness to bring the world together, vs keeping the world apart. We appreciate the move by Russia."
    • The ISRO is looking to cooperate with the United States and Japan on the Mercury. We would provide 30% funding for the mission, and necessary supplies should you require it. The ISRO starts asking private space companies for help, to contribute to this mission.
      • American and Japanese Response: The United States and Japan welcome India into the international mission to put a man on Mercury, and look forward to further cooperation on this matter.
    • President Indu and Prime Minister Mantri congratulate Prime Minister Parker on his reelection in the United Kingdom. "We congratulate the Prime Minister on winning his reelection, and look forward to continued diplomacy between our two countries.
    • President Indu agrees to meet with President Yuan regarding updating policies for space activities. In a statement, he says "We agree with this notion, current space policy is outdated. To put it simply, these policies were introduced when the Beatles were popular, and our country was nothing but a dot on the map. We should update these policies to reflect the changing landscapes of space, and space activity in general. We accept a meeting with President Yuan."
    • Prime Minister Mantri condemns the terrorist attack on the city of Christchurch, and offers his support to Prime Minister Wirihana, after the attempted assassination. Mantri also offers moral support for victims of the magnitude 7.9 earthquake.

The Chinese Transperency Organization starts the #ResignYuan hashtag online, which grows in popularity. Due to the increasing liberalization of China, there is little President Yuan can do to control the media or internet as he would have been able to 50 years ago.
    • President Yuan releases a statement on the #ResignYuan campaign, saying "These attacks are malicious in nature, and do not represent the true nature of who I am as a leader. I have tried my upmost to lead the country through thick and thin, and never once have I wavered from the task. I have always been true and loyal to this great nation, and served it to the best of my abilities. I will let you, the citizens, decide what you think of the campaign for yourselves." President Yuan regains slight support because of the statement, and the majority of Chinese Citizens are clearly on his side.

    • Polling indicates most Chinese citizens are happy about this change to Japan, showing 64% are willing to forgive the Japanese Government. The other 36% saying they would not forgive Japan are mostly people who are directly affected by the regime change in Japan.
    • Various space based policy analysts in China raise the question to President Yuan and relevant government agencies, asking "Should new space based policy be adopted due to the changing atmosphere with regards to space?" President Yuan releases a statement on this saying "We should introduce new space legislation. Most of the current policy is over 50 years old, and does not account for the new problems we face such as space colonization and space resources. I would request a meeting with the three major powers, Russia, India, and The United States, to discuss what our next steps shall be."

Our President agrees with this, and so we would begin taking steps to decrease our military size.
    • Abolishment of Conscription - The main reform for our military is to fully abolish conscription, and turn the force into a full-volunteering force. In addition, our soldiers should never take up more than 1% of our population (~1.41 Million).
    • Development of deadlier weapons - To make up for our shrinking military, we would also focus on developing sereval deadlier weapons rather than focusing on building as many tanks or artillery as possible. It's unknown which weapons would becomee deadlier first, but experts and military strategists have suggested larger nuclear bombs up to 1 Kiloton.
    • Larger incentives to become soldiers - To ensure we would still have a decently sized military, we would provide our soldiers higher pay and college educations once they are honourbly discharged. Our military requirement would also go down from 18 to just 13 years old, however soldiers between 13 and 16 will be in the "Pioneer Army", which will be assigned to defence constructions or field hospital work in case of war. The Pioneer Army will not be allowed to participate in combat unless absolutely necesscary.
  • Construction of the first modules of our Moon Base - The Borsch Base, named after one of our most famous astrologists, is currently having sereval modules under construction. This includes a living quarters, a mining area, a plant growing area, a storage area and the depressuration module. Due to the rockets being only capable to hold three modules, we would launch our depression module, living module and the mining module first. This would be the first time that we would use the British Skyhook.
    • A Moon Skyhook - We realize that if the Moon has a skyhook as well, it would make landing ships a lot easier and faster. And so, we would begin consideration for our Moon Skyhook, and its design. China and the UK are allowed to help us in the Moon Skyhook project.
  • Space Station - The Kardeshev Space Station, named after the man who created the Kardeshev Scale, is at the final stages of preparation. We would begin to master the science of gravity pods, with the science becoming more and more well understood. We would realize that in order to gain gravity, the space station will have to rotate around the Earth with a rapid speed. We would also begin to construct the first modules of the space station on the ground, and the equipment required to build it in space.
  • International Affairs (Diplomacy):
    • Russian-Japanese Relations - Despite the new Japanese Prime Minister Shunsen apologizing for his brother's actions, we would not fully lift our sanctions on Japan. We would however resume travel to and from Japan, as well as end our trade embargo on Japan. Our President said in a press conference: "The Russian People would like to see if the State of Japan is forgiving for real or if they are buying sympathy to further their expansionist aims."

    • Antimatter: In line with Australia's commitment to the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, legislation is passed prohibiting the design, manufacture, and acquisition of antimatter weaponry by the Australian government, private individuals and corporations. The same legislation provides funds to the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources to conduct research into civilian applications of antimatter.
  • Space Affairs:
    • Orbiting Spaceport: The Australian Orbital Spaceport (AOS) begins construction and is expected to be completed by 2080 with the ability to dock up to 20 spacecraft at a time with a working crew of 4,000.
    • Moon: The area surrounding Australia's various private and public lunar projects is declared the Tranquil Territory (TT), composed of the Mare Tranquillitatis. The seat of government of the territory is Philips One. An Administrator is appointed to oversee the executive functions of the territory; a 5-member Court of Tranquil is created to serve as the sole court in the territory. The Territory is not granted home rule with all laws originating from the Commonwealth Government and administered by the Administrator. However, the Advisory Council of Tranquil is formed consisting of 15 part-time members appointed by the Administrator. This Council is generally to consist of a mix of space entrepreneurs representatives, workers representatives and other interest group representatives and is to advise the Administrator on the implementation of legislation and the Administrator is duty-bound to report the Council's concerns to the Parliament in Canberra for consideration. Due to the near-zero permanent population of the territory, all residents in the territory are considered temporary residents and vote in state and federal elections according to their last recorded terrestrial address. Nonetheless, it has been noted that as the permanent population of the TT increases, home rule for permanent residents may become necessary.

Internal Affairs:

  • Election Results: William Parker is re-elected as prime minister. The Liberal Democrats and Conservative parties make major gains, with the party of the DSUP rising to greater prominence. Labour loses several seats to other parties, and Labour supporters call for. Sophia Wright to resign as Labour leader. SNP and Plaid Cymru both show signs of slow disintegration as Prime Minister Parker continues to attack separatist parties by promoting greater autonomy and support to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. For the first time, the SNP lose their control in Scottish Parliament, with a new Scottish Party taking control, named the Scottish Unionist Progressive Party (SUPP).
  • The Skyhook-Stage 2: The Department for Space announces the completion of the Phobos supertether. The first launches are British satellites sent out to map the moons of Jupiter and Saturn for potential colonisation sites and resource obtaining. They came back with potential colonisation sites on Callisto, Titan and Enceladus, mining nearby Trojan asteroids, mining water on Europa and using Io as a potential energy source. More satellites, equipped with rovers to study the surface of the moons, were sent and found mining helium-3 from the gas giants was a feasible idea. No astronauts are yet to travel by the Skyhook while mapping and surveillance continues.
  • Experiments on Antimatter: The first British antimatter bomb is tested on an uninhabited island in the Shetland Isles. The explosion was equivalent to 2.66 megatons of TNT, with current work underway to improve that yield. British labs begin synthesising antimatter as a potential trade option, trying to find ways to produce and contain antimatter far more cheaply than before. Meanwhile, the antimatter ray is seen in action for the first time. Wielding a blast of 1.52 megatons of TNT, it was tested on an asteroid near Jupiter, vaporising most of the asteroid to a chunk small enough to burn up in the Earth’s atmosphere. All remaining debris was cleared up and none of the debris caused any casualties on any colonies, with tight containment measures including 25 cleaner satellites involved in the containment.
  • AI Rights: With an increased amount of artificial intelligence appearing on Britain’s streets, a debate sparks up about whether they should have rights. The law on having rights currently states that 'a human counts as a live body with a biological consciousness rather than a artificial one. Their origins must be of biological descent to count as a human.'This effectively makes digitally conscious people 'humans'. The UK has especially tight regulations over AI, but some campaigners are campaigning for artificial intelligence to have more freedom. They are supported by the Conservative and DSUP parties. The current government opposes such a suggestion.
  • Rise of the Military-Part 4: The military begins to increase focus on bringing cyberwarfare onto the physical battlefield, allowing soldiers to increase information discovered in reconnaissance and disrupt battles against robot soldiers. [SECRET] Once such a piece of technology is a transmitter which jams the signals of AI on the battlefield, confusing any firewalls and opening breaches, allowing e-viruses to enter the robot’s system. It can do three things: corrupt the robot’s systems, destroying it; reprogram the robot for later use or use it as a replicating centre to spread the virus further through the systems. Any information is directly transferred to a military cybercentre. [END SECRET]

He carved his own path, rose to power in a showboaty and pompous way. Japan is not a barbaric people. We are people of strength, kindness, and compassion. However, some wish to test that theory, and put us in a position we may never crawl out of. As Prime Minister, I wish to reengage kindly and openly with the international community once more, not leave it in darkness. This will not only benefit my people, but the people of the world. We also wish to repay for our misdeeds any way we can, whether that be in reparations, or some other means. You just let us know. We'll be there. Thank you."

2076

2075 was a year to remember. Much happened, politically, socially, and economically. The year saw new administrations, with President Ted Franklin, Prime Minister Mantri, Prime Minister Parker, Prime Minister Shunsen, and President Belikov being either elected or reelected to office. The arrival of Prime Minister Shunsen in particular garnered very mixed reactions, some welcoming his election, and some edging towards caution and conflict. Many saw his election as a good thing for Japan, after the previous Prime Minister's death.

The year also saw many scientific developments, with a joint mission to Mercury being announced by NASA and JAXA, with the ISRO being added later. In the United States, six states became carbon neutral due to environmental policies enacted in years past. In India, the ISRO announced the first interstellar probes to be launched by the country, using their new antimatter engines. In Russia, the science of gravity pods starts to become apparent, with Russia planning to build a space station incorporating this technology. In New Zealand, tragedy struck twice, as months after a terrorist attack on the city of Christchurch, the Prime Minister was almost assassinated by the same group. Many countries are rising to greater heights, the question being, which will fall first?

  • Domestic Affairs:
    • Largest Antimatter Bomb Test: India successfully tests it's "God of Bombs" with a yield of 196 megatons. The test, conducted in Rajasthan, and all citizens in the theoretical blast range were evacuated, and compensated for property loss. The bomb was dropped from a specially fitted UAV bomb carrier, the IDI Giddh-03, which translates to Indian Defense Industries Eagle-03. The bomb was stated to be a show of power by many, considering it was launched and detonated near the border of India and Pakistan. President Indu claims no Pakistani property was damaged or affected, and satellite imaging reveals this to be true. President Indu remarks "this is a new era for Indian defense."
    • Update on Made in India 2.0: The Made in India 2.0 Initiative is highly successful, and is predicted to add 5 trillion dollars to the economy each year until 2080. Many companies in the nearby countries of Sri Lanka and Nepal start moving their manufacturing into India, contributing another 2 trillion dollars year over year until 2080. The initiative should contribute 10 trillion to the Asian continent within the next decade.
    • Assassination plan thwarted: The Anti-Transhumanist group प्रकृति के रक्षक or Protectors of Nature, in English, is raided after an online chat group revealed several members of the group were planning to assassinate Vice President Taij. One of the members defected from the group, and turned confidential chat logs into the Bangalore Cyber Terrorist Task Force. These messages were able to be traced to various members of the group, who were promptly arrested. They planned to install an virus remotely into Taij's life support systems, which would render him deceased. A representative for the group said the actions planned were due to the passing of the Transhumanist Sanctuary Act last year.
    • Results of Assassination Plan:As a result of the attempted assassination, many companies currently with transhumanist support infrastructure develop anti-hacking devices, similar to that of an RFID chip in a wallet. These measures will be federally insured, to allow all citizens to live without fear of death by terrorism. [SECRET] The Indian Defense Policy Committee, at the direction of President Indu, starts to equip all electronic systems with anti-hacking and anti-emp measures, to assure the country can never go offline because of an attack. [SECRET]
    • IPO of Soch Inc: Soch Inc. decides to go public. As predicted, the company garners over 200% revenue at the time of the IPO, raising it's value to 230 billion dollars. Many crowdfunding projects have been bought up by the company, and many more are expected to emerge. One of the main points, however, is the Sochi app. The Sochi app, due to the continued popularity of startup culture and the free speech aspect of the app, has a user count of 3 billion. Many question this statistic, but independent reviewers show the count is true. The major user base is due to the companies focus on the emerging or newly developed countries such as Nigeria, China, Brazil, Turkey, and many others.
    • Space Capitalism for India: President Indu and Prime Minister Mantri sign the Space Revenue Act. The act stipulates all companies may enter space and profit from it, as long as the land is not claimed by another agency, government, or company. Companies such as Soch would gain from this, as profitable charitable companies will be mandated to pay less taxes per ton, than other companies that are less charitable. President Indu remarks in a statement "I believe space is just as any other land or area, and therefore, companies should have a right to profit off of it. We have been too shy to cross the border of space capitalism for too long, and I intend to end that today. The right to explore space if capable is sacred, but at some point, the government cannot be the only player benefiting from space."
    • Deep Space Probes Launched: The Anantata-1 and Anantata-2 projects are both launched from the ISRO Launch Center in Tamil Nadu. Both probes contain various books in various languages etched into a Nano-data storage system. The storage system also holds various historical records of India, as well as cultural and societal norms of the rest of the world. The probes will last for more than 50 years if the fuel lasts, and should be able to convert available space energy into antimatter, effectively allowing the probes to run forever, if left undamaged. The probes also have heavy heat and cooling systems to withstand the most extreme temperatures.
    • Indian Pride over Mercury: The Indian public flood the streets in celebration of the successful return of the Mercury mission. The mission's success is a major boost of Indian national pride, as well as the diplomatic status of India with The United States and Japan. The ISRO releases a statement saying "This mission was a massive success. We have just unturned the last terrestrial stone in the Solar System, by landing on Mercury. The results, once released and understood, should give us a better understanding of our planet, as well as other planets too."
    • Patil Interrogation: [SECRET] After Amir Patil is retrieved from the Atlantic Ocean, the ISRO and Department of Space Rescue from the ISRO take him into temporary custody, to question him. This is a transcript of the interrogation.
      • Agent: Do you consent to this recording, knowing full and well you may be prosecuted, jailed, fined, or other legal action taken against you, should you lie or attempt to decieve us?
      • Patil: Yes I do consent.
      • Agent: Wonderful. Just for your information, we have you hooked up to an AI that will monitor various biological and psychological functions, which will then inform us with a 99.7% accuracy rate of Truth or Lie. Let's get on with some basic questions, shall we?
      • Patil: Ok, will this machine cause me any pain?
      • Agent: No, the "machine" is just a nanopaste we put on the skin near your spine, which will then remotely transmit it's results to this machine here. The paste can tell whether you are lying or telling the truth via your nerve connections and the information within your brain being transmitted. It is state of the art, and will not hurt you.
      • Patil: Ok, I just wanted to make sure.
      • Agent: That is completely fine. My first question is, What did you see, or hear, about the messages written on the walls of the ravine during your mission to Mercury?
      • Patil: Well, I was scheduled to expect the other astronauts arrival into the command module seven days after our landing initially. When they came into the module, they told me about the images they had seen, and showed me a snapshot they had taken. I was taken aback by this, and informed mission control in Kolkata that we had found an item of interest, as procedure would dictate. I did not send the image over, as procedure also dictates on shared missions we are not to send electronic images that may be a risk to the public or state security.
      • Agent: And that was a good thing you did not send anything over right away. And the lie detection system shows you are telling the truth on that matter. So onto my next question, What did the photo contain on it?
      • Patil: The photo contained various rows of some sort of symbol or other language. Other than the symbols, the photo contained the rock on which these images were engraved into and nothing else.
      • Agent: Ok, it appears you are once again telling the truth, which is good. Next question, Could you translate the writing, or tell what it was saying at all?
      • Patil: None of us could tell what the writing meant. Pearce, Kazunori, and I all tried to read it. Kazunori speaks Japanese, and confirmed that it was not Japanese. Pearce speaks English, and confirmed it was not English. I speak Hindi and some Arabic, and I could not translate it. We had a 30 minute ETA to leave, and the ravine was right near us, so I put on my suit and tried to read the language directly, but I could not. I decided to take a picture of it as well, as I thought we should keep multiple records of it. I took a sample of the rock directly as well, to see if we could test for any biological life.
      • Agent: That was a smart thing you did, by taking another image, that gives us an independent record. As for the sample, we are still trying to test it for biological life. Again, there is no detection of a lie, and those were all of my questions, so you are free to leave. Make sure to not tell anybody about this, or you will most likely be arrested. Do I have your agreement to keep this confidential, on the record, with penalty of possible arrest or other legal action?
      • Patil: Yes, you have my agreement. I will be leaving now. [SECRET]
    • Study of Mercury Samples: [SECRET] The picture and the sample of rock are taken through intense testing. Mercury Sample #1, or simply "The Rock" is taken to the top biological testing facility in India for use by the ISRO, The ISRO BioTest Facility in Bengaluru. This facility is one of four in the world used by many countries who can't afford the technology, such as Nepal or Sri Lanka. The other three are located in the United States, Russia, and China. The testing reveals no signs of biological life, and no remnants of any either. The rock is subsequently dated and stored in the BioTest active projects lab. Mercury Sample #2, or simply "The Image" is taken to the Universal Translation Project at the University of Aerospace Studies and Engineering in Bengaluru, which belongs and contracts heavily with the ISRO. The AI determines the language to be matching Sumerian 15%, Hattic 10%, Hurrian 5%, and Unknown 70%. The language is deemed for Mercurian for the time being, and the AI will continue working on it.[SECRET]
    • Trade between Russia/India: Prime Minister Mantri announces a trade deal has been reached between India and Russia, giving India access to the M3C Space Laser technology, while Russia gains access to our antimatter engine technology. This would give India a great boost in potential space weaponry or defense, as well as allow us to ward off potential threats from other countries.
    • MercIndia Launch Details: [SECRET] The ISRO launches the first antimatter powered Mercury probe, which will allow 2 rovers, 2 aerial drones, and 1 humanoid drone to explore the planet. All 5 robots will be automated and guided by the SPEX AI, which guides most of India's probes on other planets/moons such as Mars, Venus, and the Moon. The humanoid robot has been used before, called the अंतरिक्ष मित्र or space friend, under the humanoid model. The humanoid bot will investigate the ravine where the strange writing was found, the drones will map any terrain and check to see if there is any writing further away, and the rovers will coordinate with the drones to reach underground or tight areas where the drones could not fit. Using the ISRO's robotic launch technology, the whole process will be automated once the rocket reaches space, and will be reusable, so the rocket can relaunch back to earth once finished. This mission was planned very quickly, so the room for error is reasonably high. The antimatter engine on the rocket can reach a maximum speed of 72 million miles per hour, an unprecedented speed for rockets using ion-thruster technology. With these speeds, the rocket will reach Mercury in under 2 hours. The Mission will be called MercIndia-1.[SECRET]
    • MercIndia Launches: MercIndia is launched a week after confidential planning, much to the delight of the ISRO. The launch event is covered by all major Indian news networks, and praised for looking toward the future of energy. President Indu is at the launch to make a speech. "This launch represents the future of Indian space tech. We are launching the first Antimatter probe to another planet, which will hold two rovers, two drones, and one humanoid robotic system. We have made much progress when it comes to cutting the time down to travel to other planets, and on behalf of the ISRO and India, I announce this mission will take under 2 hours to reach Mercury. The robotic systems will stay there for two months, gathering as much data and mapping as possible. We will soon start launching humans to the 1st planet as well with antimatter, if testing goes well. Enjoy the launch!"
    • Launch and landing successful, exploration starts: The launch phase and landing phase of the MercIndia are successful. Images of ISRO mission control celebrating go viral, and Indian national pride increases heavily. All robots will stream their feeds live, albeit with a slight delay, for entertainment purposes as well as for public transparency. The robots are released onto the planets surface, and start to explore. All 5 robots are working well, and the drones take flight. The drones, called MercIndia AIR1 and AIR2, start accelerating around the planet at immense speeds, to complete a maneuver known as hypermapping. While AIR1 and AIR2 hypermap, the rover's, called GROUND1 and GROUND2, start to speed out in the direction of the drones to map the actual terrain, as accurately as possible. GROUND1 and GROUND2 are also simultaneously scanning the surface of the planet for biological life. Space Friend H starts exploring near the ravine where Pearce previously fell, unknown to anyone watching.
    • Possible Life?:[SECRET] As the drones start to explore and map Mercury, they spot something. It seems like a cave with some sort of bioluminescent light coming out of it. The drones live feeds are cut as the ISRO continue to watch the feeds from the Kolkata Mission Control Center, alongside President Indu and Vice President Taij. After quick deliberation, the ISRO decides to command AIR1 to stay over the area, and for AIR2 to airlift GROUND1 to the area, and then continue to observe from the sky. AIR1 keeps a visual, while AIR2 locates a rendezvous point for GROUND1 to be picked up. AIR2 successfully picks up GROUND1, and brings the rover to the area. AIR2 resumes flight, and starts to observe the area once again. For reference these events are taking place about 50 miles from the original landing point. GROUND1 makes it's way into the area, and spots the same bioluminescent signatures emanating from the cave. GROUND1 enters the cave cautiously, trying to spot what the origin of the light is. As GROUND1 enters the cave, the light becomes dimmer somehow. GROUND1 then initiates it's 360 degree multi lens camera system, which allows it to take photos in UV, Infrared, X-ray, and Microwave wavelengths. After taking multiple photos, GROUND1 takes a sample of the rock inside, as well as the light material. GROUND1 exits the cave, and the light dims completely. Both AIR1 and AIR2, as well as GROUND1, send their images to ISRO mission control. Their cameras are turned back on for live streaming once GROUND1 is airlifted back, and the mission continues once again.[SECRET]
    • Images and data reviewed: [SECRET] The images are received by mission control. They are immediately analyzed by AI, along with top scientists at mission control. The first set of images are from the AIR1 and AIR2 drones, and show the light emanating from the cave. The second set of images are from the inside of the cave from GROUND1. The third and final set of images are from the individual samples themselves, and the scans of biological life so far from GROUND1 and GROUND2. Set#1 is analyzed, and the light is found to be similar to an Anglerfish's bulb. Set#2 is much more interesting. These photos show more wording or symbols inscribed on the inside of the cave walls, this time with some reference to recognizable drawings. The drawings have a resemblance to human cave drawings, with the symbols seemingly telling a story. Some of these drawings are more recognizable, such as what looks to be a Sun, some human like figures drawn, and a reference template of sorts for the language. The text is immediately sent to the Universal Translation Project, while the ISRO scientists study the third set of images. The first half of the third set shows nothing of interest, and ISRO scientists seem to be losing hope. Two photos in the third set, give them hope once again. The first is of the entrance of the cave, when GROUND1 scanned the outer area. GROUND1 found some evidence of biological life, and when tested by internal computing systems, could not identify the organism to any earth-like genetic structure, meaning alien life, at least very small, has been found. The second image of interest is the light sample, which shows the same biological signatures as the rocks outside the cave. GROUND1 stored this rock as a sample, so when the mission is finished, samples can return to earth. The light seemed to react, in theory, to the detection of electronic signals emitted by the rover and drones in the area. The ISRO intends to share this information with NASA, JAXA, CNSA, and the RSCSA.[SECRET]
    • Translation once again: [SECRET] The translation comes up similar to the last analysis, but detects 23% Sumerian, 15% Hattic, Hurrian 7%, and Unknown 65%. The Mercurian Language is slowly starting to translate based on the references, but even with advanced computing and AI technology, it will take an estimated 50 years with current translation estimates. The ISRO makes plans to send another mission up to Mercury within the next few weeks, with a version of the Universal Translation Project loaded on to a bot. The ISRO is also making plans to fast track another mission to bring the samples back before the 2 month mission end. [SECRET]
    • MercIndia2 Launch Prep:[SECRET] The ISRO and President Indu prepare for a second MercIndia mission, called MercIndia2. The Mission will be the second test of the Antimatter engine to another planetary body. The error rate is cut significantly after the first launch, and this mission will last three months. The mission will include three sample collection pods, which will store any data, rocks, or biological life samples, for observation at various ISRO labs. The reasoning for three sample pods is, POD1 will be launched back within a week of landing, POD2 will be launched at the two month point, and will return with the first mission sent, MERCINDIA. POD3 will be launched back at the end of MERCINDIA2, and will remain longer than 3 months pending ISRO approval. [SECRET]
    • Celebrating the Rescue In Bulgaria: President Indu releases the video of the rescue in the Balkan Mountains, through the Indian Embassy in Sofia, as well as the Ministry of External Affairs. The video is edited to blur out the faces of the couple, although many already know their identities through the Indian Digital Journal, where the first report came out in India. Many Indians celebrate the collaboration, and President Indu makes a statement after the video goes viral. He says "This collaboration was truly great, and we look forward to working with Bulgaria under less tensious circumstances. We truly appreciate them allowing us to assist, and we will be there for them in the future, should they need it."
    • MercIndia2 Launched: MercIndia2 is launched, with two additional rovers, four drones, and two humanoid robots, along with the sample collection pods. MercIndia2 arrives on Mercury in less than two hours, and lands on the planet via the SPEX AI's self guided maneuvers. This mission will not be broadcast live, due to "electronic interference concerns." This mission will be viewed by the President and Vice President, as well as the Mission Control Center in Kolkata once again. The United States also decided to join the mission late, and elected not to send any sort of hardware. The United States will also have access to the mission feed, reporters confirm.
    • MercIndia2 Mission Part1: [SECRET] When MercIndia2 lands, GROUND1 is waiting to deposit it's biological samples, as well as other samples it has autonomously collected. It is decided that POD1 will launch within two days of the landing, to give ample time to collect other samples. After GROUND1 has deposited it's samples, it continues to explore the Mercurian Surface. All four drones from MercIndia2 lift off, and start exploring the various terrain around the new landing spot, approximately 520 miles from the MercIndia1 mission. Both rovers start to explore as well as the humanoid robots. Over the next day, the rovers and drones travel outward, going further and further into uncharted territories. Another light suddenly alerts one of the drones, named AIR3, which promptly hovers over to the area. President Indu reacts in surprise at seeing this, as the light seems to be much brighter than the last time. As the drone hovers, another drone, AIR4, airlifts GROUND2 to the area, where it can investigate inside the cave. The ISRO decides to command the other drones, AIR1, AIR2, AIR5, and AIR6 to do priority circling over the area, as well as pick up GROUND3 and GROUND4 to explore the cave alongside GROUND2. With all six drones now hovering, and three of the rovers starting to investigate the cave, the ISRO commands the three humanoid robots to tail the rovers. The Humanoid robots are estimated to arrive at the cave in 15 minutes, so the ISRO gives all three rovers the green light to investigate. As per usual, all three rovers are equipped the same. One of the rovers does have the Universal Translation Project, however it has never been tested in this atmosphere. As the rovers enter the cave, the light does not dim, as it did last time. The light instead becomes brighter, and that is when the rovers spot something miraculous. [SECRET]
    • MercIndia2 Mission Part2: [SECRET] The rovers spot what looks to be a figure, about six feet tall. From what limited visual information the rovers can get, they see the man looks to be in chains, that look to glow like a sort of blue fire. The man looks to have bright orange eyes, with raven black skin, as well as a sort of muscular frame. When the rovers and the man finally can see each other, the man starts talking fast in some other language, seemingly in distress. President Indu and Vice President Taij, as well as the rest of mission control in Kolkata, are shocked. This is proof of extra-terrestrial life. Man's quest to venture into the unknown has finally yielded results. While the President and Vice President stand there in shock, the AI starts to pick up on the man's language and speech pattern. It is clear the language is not one spoken on earth, at least not recently. The Universal Translation AI then recommends trying to translate into and from Sumerian, a long lost and extinct language only recovered very recently, due to projects like the Universal Translation Project. The AI then loads Sumerian, and gets a successful translation signal. The man starts talking once again, this time more agitated and distressed. [SECRET]
    • Transcript of Alien Conversation: [SECRET] This is a transcript of the conversation with the Alien.
      • President Indu: Hello, can you understand me? I have the language currently set to Sumerian, which seems to be your main method of communication.
      • Alien: *With a suprised look* How can you speak my language? I do not know of a Sumerian, or who that is. I am speaking the language of the planet Earth. This was the language I was taught to speak by the elders. Who are you?
      • President Indu: I am President Indu, of Earth. This seems to be your first contact with a human, which is what I am. I am from a country, or land, called India.
      • Alien: President Indu? I have never heard of that name. I extend greetings to you.
      • President Indu: May I ask who you are? You seem to be imprisoned in that rocky cave. Do you remember why you were imprisoned?
      • Alien: I am from a planet far away. My name, in your strange language, is Xyzbeke. And I was imprisoned due to insubordination, if you must know. I am tired, or how you Earth members say fatigued, so talk to me in one cycle. I suppose for you, that would be a half sun cycle, if that translated right. *Enters state of meditation?* [SECRET]
    • Measures taken after transcript: [SECRET] The transcript ends there, with the ISRO commanding two rovers to stay on standby, with one drone hovering the area, and the humanoid robots to retreat, as not to scare the Alien. The ISRO gives the species, or man at least, the specification of Mercurian, with the species being named विदेशी प्रजाति, or simply foreign species. The ISRO, along with President Indu and Vice President Taij, authorized the release of all currently held information of this alien, as well as all findings on Mercury. The information will go to the United States, Russia, Japan, China, and the United Kingdom, as chosen by India. President Indu and the ISRO Chief Dr. Rajut Pragdev, recommend an emergency meeting between the countries mentioned above. [SECRET]
  • Foreign Affairs:
    • Possible Trade of Technology with Russia: Prime Minister Mantri would like to meet with President Navalny regarding a possible sharing of antimatter engine technology, in exchange for their technology in reference to a death laser.
    • First interaction with President Belikov: President Indu wishes to meet with President Belikov regarding the disappearance of the couple in the Balkan mountains. He claims in a newscast to his fellow citizens, "We should do what we can, if we are able, to help other countries in times of distress. I heard about this case via the Indian Digital Journal, and thought I could try to help." President Indu offers a rescue team of 50, as well as पीक रेस्क्यू कंपनी, or Peak Rescue Company; 4 drones, which have thermal and ultraviolet capabilities, as well as fine tuned microphones with AI trained to pick up human noises and heat signatures.
    • Congratulating Sweden and wishing good health: President Indu issues a statement via his personal Sochi account, saying "I, along with the rest of India, wish former Prime Minister Johansson well, and look forward to diplomacy between India and Prime Minister Ed Akeson. I also congratulate Sweden for starting the transition to a republic, and hope that works well for all Swedes/Swedish Citizens."
    • Responding to China's Condemnation: President Indu responds to President Yuan's condemnation saying "With all due respect to China, we can test antimatter bombs as we like. We did not impact Pakistan in any way, and we actually gave them a heads up before the launch. Next time, please inquire further before making baseless statements such as that. We look forward to diplomacy in other areas however." President Indu releases the memo sent to the Pakistani Government 8 days before the test, informing of possible damage.
    • Releasing the photos to allies: [SECRET] After days of deliberation, President Indu authorizes the release of copies of the photos taken on the MercIndia mission. The ISRO mostly agrees with this decision, but cautions about possible sabotage by other countries. President Indu says "If that happens, they will deal with the consequences." He decides to release the images to the CANZUK alliance, Russia, The United States, and China. He rules out Japan, as the regime change was very recent, and Indu wants to see how their diplomacy will play out. [SECRET]
    • Rescue Mission Success: After getting approval from President Belikov, President Indu authorizes a rescue team of 50 to enter the Balkan Mountains, as well as the Peak Rescue Company drones. While the 50 rescue members look into the Balkan Mountains with climbing gear and specialized exoskeletons, the drones start to hover the area. With the exoskeletons, the rescue team can carry 1000 pounds each, enough to hold an oxygen converter, rescue equipment, climbing gear, and much more. The drones, approximately two hours into the search, find a heat signature, seemingly belonging to a human or humans. The drone alerts the rescue team to the position of the heat signatures, which seem to be in a rock crevice. The rescue team reaches the area of the heat signatures, and confirms a man and a woman are both stuck in-between two rocks, seemingly unconscious. RHS technology, or remote heart scanning, which is carried by 10 of the rescue crew members certified in medical care, detects the man and woman have heartbeats, but barely. The IMRT, or Indian Mountain Rescue Team, use their exoskeletons and weighted down equipment to effectively tether themselves to the ground above the rocks, and start to descend. Two medical IMRT members pair up with a standard IMRT member, in order to monitor vitals and ensure the couple are not injured in their places. They descend 50 feet to where the couple are located, and place them in special harnesses intended for this type of rescue. Once they are down, they use facial identification systems to positively identify both Sergei and Anastasia. Once both are identified, emergency diagnostics are performed, showing the couple are both suffering severe malnourishment, slight dehydration, severe hypothermia, decreased heart rate, and frostbite to their hands and fingers. Nutrax injections are immediately done, to prevent any additional malnourishment, as well as more dehydration. The Nutrax Injection is designed with nanotech to monitor proper nutrition intake, and will not release too many nutrients at once. Emergency HeatPaks are also applied to the skin, and around thin layers of clothing, to reverse some of the hypothermia. As the couple is pulled out of the crevice, the RHS system shows their heart rates increasing once again. Once the couple reach the surface, 2 more IMRT medical members start to diagnose further, with more IMRT members wrapping the couple in HeatPak Blankets, to ensure their temperature rises further. Color is starting to return to them as the Nutrax Injection determines to release more nutrients, and the bodies heat up further. Two Peak Mountain Rescue Drones are still hovering over the team, while the other two go to alert the "Base Team", or the team that is ready to receive them. The team reconvenes, and the couple is sent to the Stara Zagora Hospital, in stable condition. The recording of the mission is sent to President Indu directly, in an email saying "Mission was successful, check it out for yourself sir."
    • Indu calls an emergency meeting: President Indu invites The United States, Japan, Russia, The United Kingdom, and China to a meeting for "climate change measures" [SECRET] ONLY FOR COUNTRIES MENTIONED: The meeting is to discuss the finding of Alien life, and all information India has at the moment on this very recent development.

With Akeson in charge, he requests for a referendum for a republic. A referendum is held with over and 79% vote for a Republic, with 75% of the vote needed to pass. The Moderate Party even got on board on the movement claiming that centrism does not require a monarchy. Akeson said that Sweden would begin it's process in 2077 and would become a Republic by 2080.

International Affairs:

  • United States-Sweden Relations: Swedish officials propose to renew the Sweden-U.S. alliance. Many Swedish politicians feel like Sweden has become more unaligned with the U.S. over the years, and still want safety with a U.S. Alliance, as Sweden wants to distance themselves from the more Nationalist Russia.
    • United States Response: The United States agrees to strengthen relations with Sweden.

Internal Affairs:

  • The American Criminal Relief Program (ACRP): President Ted Franklin imposes a new massive program to help combat high incarceration rates in the United States. Named the American Criminal Relief Program (abbreviated as ACRP), it orders a major rethinking of the way criminals are treated in several institutions across the country. One goal of the new ACRP initiative is to reexamine federal criminal laws, including the draconian federal mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenses. The use of capital punishment is also being examined, but is also argued to be an ethical way to deal with criminals who've committed egregious offenses such as murder.
  • Execution of Arthur Ayers: On June 19, serial killer Arthur Michael Ayers is executed by lethal injection at California State Prison, Los Angeles County, California. A Los Angeles native, Ayers was convicted of over 25 murders of young men and women throughout the 2050s and 2060s. They were buried on vacant plots on the western edge of Death Valley and Mojave Desert. Some were identified, and Ayers was arrested in September of 2066 on suspicion of killing 25-year-old Joan McDaniel and 15-year-old Christine Ann Saylor, whose bodies were found along the Verdugo Mountains near the town of Reseda. Both were strangled. He later confessed to the other 23 murders, and was imprisoned for nearly ten years. His body was later cremated.
  • Jacob Pearce Awarded: Jacob Pearce is awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Ted Franklin, as well as the Congressional Space Medal of Honor in August a few months later.
  • Invention of the Lightning Carrier: Young Massachusetts-based inventor Criss Page Smith invents the Lightning Carrier, a device for shooting out electric bolts from a distance. Inspired by Nikola Tesla's inventions of the Tesla coil and death ray, the Lightning Carrier is a compact, two-foot-long, gold and copper shaft with a small plug at the top. It attracts lightning during a thunderstorm, and as it's struck, the electricity flows through the gold but stops at the wood, (aka "catching" the lightning"), which generates a charge so strong that it can destroy anything in its path. In his first test, Smith hurled it at a nearby tree, splitting it in half and setting it on fire. He then tested the weapon against a mannequin, causing it to explode. Smith's demonstration was so successful that he soon received a contract to manufacture the device

International Affairs and Diplomacy:

  • Mission to Mercury: On February 25, the Mission to Mercury is ready to launch. Attached to a Saturn IX rocket from Hawaii Space Center in Kihei, ECHO-34d is a specially-designed spacecraft carrying the first instrumented investigation of the planet Mercury. From the NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California, ECHO Mission Operations Director Jim Green provides a background for the instrument-laden mission, “It’s really going to give us a look at a planet that we’ve never been to before. It’s really exciting to be able to get this spacecraft to Mercury, to study the planet Mercury. It’s a chance to learn a lot about this little world, its origins, and how it may have evolved into what it is today.” Just before lift-off, President Ted Franklin, alongside Japanese Prime Minister Taro Shunsen and Indian Prime Minister Okya Mantri, make captivating speeches, stating, “This mission is an inspirational symbol for humanity’s drive to explore the Solar System. This will be a journey of epic and awesome proportions.” ECHO’s crew command consists of three core members from the United States, Japan, and India: commander Jacob Pearce, mercurial module pilot Toda Kazunori, and command module pilot Amar Patil.
    • The INTERSTELLAR-3 spacecraft, designed by Space-X, is also attached to ECHO to provide extra food, water, oxygen tanks, and other supplies to the astronauts aboard.
    • After being sent to Mercury by Saturn IX’s third stage, the astronauts separate the spacecraft from it and travel for nearly 41 days until they enter Mercury’s orbit. Pearce and Kazunori then move into Interstellar Module Wolf and land in what they dub the Great Horizon Plain on April 9. Equipped with special suits designed to regulate their internal temperature and keep it at a bearable level, Kazunori becomes the first man to step on the surface of Mercury. He later recounts, “It looked a lot like the Moon. It was dark, and there were craters literally everywhere, some miles deep.” Pearce becomes the second man to step onto the surface.
    • While exploring, Jacob Pearce accidentally falls down a narrow ravine. Thankfully, it is not too deep. However, while climbing out, he notices that there is what looks to be writing on the walls of the chasm. It looks sort of like a cross between Arabic, Hindu, Cyrillic, and Egyptian hieroglyphics. Pearce informs Kazunori of what he found -

Pearce: “Ow man...Toda, I just fell down a ravine. Damnit, that hurt…”

Kazunori: “You alright?”

Pearce: “Yeah. Not very deep, thank the lord. I’m coming back up...(shuffling of equipment)...wait, I think I see something.”

Kazunori: “What is it?”

Pearce: “It looks like...writing…”

Kazunori: “Writing? What do you mean?”

Pearce: “Come look!”

Kazunori: “Shit man, that is writing. Doesn’t look intelligible.”

Pearce: “Nah...almost looks like hieroglyphics, like Arabic maybe, Hindu...or Cyrillic.”

Kazunori: “Who could’ve done this?”

They snapshot a photo of the writing and climb back out.

  • After spending nearly a week on the surface of Mercury, collecting rock and dust samples for examination back on Earth, the astronauts use Interstellar Module Wolf’s ascent stage to lift off from the surface and rejoin Amar Patil in the command module. They jettison Wolf before they performed the maneuvers that propel ECHO out of the last of its 25 lunar orbits onto a trajectory back to Earth. They return to Earth and splashed down in the Atlantic Ocean on April 20 after more than a month in space.
  • [SECRET] Jacob Pearce, Toda Kazunori, and Amar Patil, now international heroes, are secretly interrogated by government and military officials regarding what they saw on the surface of Mercury, with particular interest toward the strange writings found on the wall of the ravine. Scientists at NASA and JAXA, as well as top government officials, are certain these writings are proof of extraterrestrial life [SECRET].
  • MercIndia Mission 2: President Ted Franklin, Vice President Sara Anderson, and other government and military officials watch the live feed from the rovers and AI bots alongside their Indian counterparts. As one of the rover gets closer, it reveals the figure to have long, shadowy dark hair that flowed down his shoulders, and wearing some sort of tunic made out of unidentified material. President Franklin stands there silently with an expressionless face, and vice President Anderson looks like she is contemplating the next step as Indian President Indu talks with the alien.

    • Denarii & Liberal Party Fracture: A fracture occurs within the Liberal Party as there is widespread support for a commodity-based currency in Liberal-held South Australia and Western Australia, but the same party at the federal level and in the other states are not as receptive to the idea. A lawsuit is levelled by the federal government against the South Australian government asserting the federal government's sole authority to "coin money". This causes a schism to occur within the Liberal Party. The controversy sparks a wider-reaching debate in Australia's political and economic scene, with a rise in interest in alternative monetary and banking systems such as full-reserve banking and commodity money.

Internal Affairs:

  • Leak of Hoshido Shunsen's Intentions: On March 30, the Japanese government releases several journal entries and manual transcripts of Hoshido Shunsen before his death. His journal is a little less than 300 pages, while his transcript is a little more than 500 pages. In his journal, he discusses politics in Japan in between his commentary on the new "Cold War" with the world and what he sees as a need to control former Japanese territories in the Pacific. He further stated, "The western world has reaped the fruits of their success, and bullies other nations to submit to their heinous misdeeds." Analysts come to the conclusion that Hoshido Shunsen was possibly aiming to reunite the Empire of Japan, and expand outwards and recapture lost territory.
  • Toda Kazunori Treated As A Hero: Upon his return to Japan from Mercury, Toda Kazunori becomes a national hero for being the first person to step on the surface of Mercury. A monument is made in his honor, standing in the geographical center of the Greater Tokyo metropolitan area and pointing towards Mercury.
  • Decline In Population: By November, Japan's population drops to 117.5 million, a number not seen since 2060, as the population of archipelago has stagnated in recent years.
  • Japanese Industry Expansion: Although several industries in Japan lagged behind their foreign competitors under the rule of Prime Minister Hoshido Shunsen, it seems as though they are finally catching up and surpassing them. For example, the textile industry saw a record expansion of 12.3% this year. Especially with Chinese investment, the government’s focus on making and keeping Japan a leader in manufacturing has resulted in a significant expansion in Japan’s steel, locomotive, movie, and video game industries.
  • Weaponization of Antimatter: In several military facilities across Japan, a joint effort is being made to weaponize antimatter technology purchased from China back in 2070, in exchange for EMP technology. Before this, its use remained stagnant. The goal is to make high-energy bursts capable of easily vaporizing targets and to provide for a defensive countermeasure in the midst of an attack. This involves a lot of trial and error; the first test was in late September, causing considerable damage to a nearby training complex. Thankfully, no one was hurt.
  • Commentary on the New Regime: American professors and students living overseas in Japan are asked their opinion of the new regime of Taro Shunsen, and many of their responses were largely neutral. Most of the American professor's responses suggest the Japanese government should be allowed to pursue their goals in any way they see fit, since many of their concerns have already been addressed by the new regime. However, one professor notes that the new regime is too strong, and instead has not changed many policies made by the former Hoshido Shunsen, such as the ramping up of Japan's armed forces.

  • The Skyhook-Stage 3: Stage 2 of the Skyhook is completed, allowing the project to move onto Stage 3: The Establishment of an Inter-planetary Transport System. The satellite Starpaver 1 was launched this year, designed to map and monitor potential routes, while on Earth, a team of scientists and logisticians study and research ways to integrate the Skyhook system as a proper transport system. It involves trying to make space tourism more profitable, establishments of permanent residence and increased interconnectivity between the colonies.
  • Experiments on Antimatter: The National Antimatter Research Society begins studying antimatter for non-militaristic needs, such as antimatter power plants. They also investigate more possible uses for antimatter.
  • Titan Landing: In January, the Phobos supertether launched a small skyhook which currently orbits Titan. Ethan Anderson, Freya Collins and Daniel Holmes became the first people to visit Titan, one of Saturn’s moons. In specially designed space suits, Ethan and Freya became the first people to walk on its surface, collecting samples, taking photos and planting a British flag, before departing by the skyhook system. They landed safely on Mars before being sent to Earth. The landing is televised internationally, and Anderson, Collins and Holmes become national heroes for becoming the first humans to reach the outer solar system. Prime Minister Parker hailed ‘a new age for the cosmos’.
  • Republican Movement: With the recent republican referendum in Sweden resulting in republican transition, a growing republican movement begins to spread in the UK. Republicans say that the monarchy is now redundant and blocking the path to a true democracy, while Royalists say that the monarchy is an important part of British culture and national identity. Protests by republicans are made, though nearly all parties in Parliament are in opposition. However, the Republican movement suddenly takes a heavy hit when a terrorist attempted to shoot King George VII with an SMG. Thankfully, the limousine was bulletproof, but the terrorist then turned on the crowds, killing 28 and injuring 86 before being shot dead by firearms officers. Such an attack reduced the popularity and support for the Republican movement, decreasing the likelihood that the British Isles would ever become a republic in the near future.

2077

Last year was hectic to say the least. Where do we begin? Geopolitical tensions were hot between Pakistan and India during the first month of the year, due to a 200 megaton bomb dropped by India. China announced the success of their MegaCarrier ship, the largest military ship and aircraft carrier currently. Russia and Bulgaria revisited friendly relations, after a relative period of stalemating between the two countries. Bulgaria and India cooperated on a rescue mission, with a couple being lost in the Balkan Mountains. Sweden officially voted to abolish the Monarchy, which is seeing increasing popularity among the few remaining monarch based countries. The United States implemented new criminal justice reforms, designed to reexamine many possibly outdated federal laws. Australia starts work on their first space government, with many other countries looking to try something similar. Japan's economy and country in general are being revived, after the continuing work of their new Prime Minister. New Zealand is slowly recovering from the various disasters they faced over previous years, such as a terrorist attack and an earthquake. The United Kingdom, while considering the practicality of the monarchy, is hit with an assassination attempt on the King's life.

Oh yeah, and aliens have been discovered. What will happen next?

  • Domestic Affairs:
    • Creation of Astrobiology Department: [SECRET]President Indu authorizes the creation of the Department of Astrobiology, which would be under control by the ISRO and the offices of the President and the Vice President. Their duties include coming up with preventative measures for possible space based viruses, learning the internal structure of various foreign life forms, assessing threat levels from different possible civilizations who are spacefaring, develop standards related to the field of astrobiology, and more. The Department will remain a secret for the time being.[SECRET]
    • Development of the Hyperspace Rocket: The ISRO announces they have successfully developed and tested a safe manned, antimatter rocket, as an alternative to manned, fuel based rockets. This rocket, called हाइपरस्पेस or Hyperspace, will allow humans to safely fly and travel to planets much faster than traditional manned missions of the past. The ISRO releases this technology in limited quantities to the private sector, hoping to spur development and new applications of antimatter rocketry.
    • Population Growth Problem: Population growth in India is reaching critical levels, with some having to leave the country for lower living standards, due to the crowding in some cities. This is causing an increasing investment into digital consciousness, as well as many questioning what the governments response will be. [SECRET] Three main plans are released privately. The first plan, called PopPlan1, is to start using antimatter bombs to clear mountainous areas, so most of India is habitable. The benefit of antimatter bombs is, they do not produce radiation or lasting effects in the area of impact, as they are pure energy. The second plan, PopPlan2 would be technologically feasible, but very expensive. The second plan is to build a massive space habitat, capable of carrying over one million people. This would be possible, with the advent of antimatter engines as well as improved aerospace engineering, but again, would be very expensive. The third plan, PopPlan3, is the most immoral of the three. The third plan is essentially to wage war, whether directly or through different smaller groups, to claim land and "sell" the lands to India. This would result in more death, and is the last plan that will be considered for a very good reason. Three areas are considered, Pakistan, Bangladesh, or Afghanistan. In terms of strategy, Afghanistan, being heavily financed by China, and by some considered under their influence, would be the worst option, in terms of diplomacy. Bangladesh is an ally of ours, so that would be another blunder, and we would gain the least from the three options. Pakistan would be the likely choice, as relations are tense to this day, and we would gain a direct land extension. It would be very easy to fabricate something against them, as our governments and people essentially hate each other. We are among three governments to have achieved and tested an antimatter bomb, the other two being China and The United Kingdom, with Japan likely to be the fourth. We could decimate Pakistan with the bombs, as well as bomb all known nuclear facilities, which would essentially shut down the countries main defense. We also have defensive systems that would easily take out nuclear bombs over Pakistan, if they did launch some. We are worried about possible Chinese retaliation however, as they provide supplies and support to their country. [SECRET]

The name Kerala comes from the state of which mission control spotted the first alien lifeform, a landmark for the human species. CANZUK, Russia, China, Japan, and the United States, are invited to join.[SECRET]
      • Flag of Australia.png Australian Diplomacy: We gladly accept.
    • Accepting Chinese Mission to Mercury: President Indu and the ISRO would like to join China on their mission to Mercury, but would object to the overlooking of safety standards. The ISRO, having completed human flights within a reasonable safety net of the antimatter engine, would elect to send our own rockets up, and would invite any countries mentioned or invited to ask us.
    • Exotic Matter?: President Indu would like to inquire and meet with Prime Minister Parker, regarding the so-called Exotic Matter, and what applications it would have in theory. President Indu says "I personally, as well as many physicists across India, are interested in this new discovery by the British. We would like to meet with Prime Minister Parker to discuss this. We are willing to buy this technology, or whatever other methods the UK would accept."

    • Gong-1 Launch: President Yuan and the CNSA prepare to launch a mission to Mercury, called the Gong-1.

This mission will mark the first test of an antimatter engine with human astronauts, ignoring previously set standards of space safety testing within China.

They find the assassin was called Lewis Johansson, who was born in Leeds but of Swedish origins. He lived in Sweden for 6 years before returning to the UK 1 year before his attack. It is suspected that he was emboldened by Sweden’s growing anti-royalist stance and promoted similar beliefs to the UK. He then joined an organisation which believed that the monarchy should be removed. Due to the extremist views of the group, he was radicalised and took part in protests against the monarchy, before finally plotting his attack. After firearms officers raided his home, they confiscated two pistols and a homemade pipe bomb. They also found and confiscated data and papers of the vehicles the monarch travelled in, instruction manuals on firearms, manifestos on the removal of the monarchy and information of the organisation. All of the confiscated items were taken in for inspection. [END SECRET]
