Imperial delegation arrives in Xiomera


In the early morning hours of October 11th, Air command 6, touched down at Empress Camaxtica Military Headquarters Complex in Xiomera. Traveling aboard was an elite delegation, counting Princess Wu Zhou and Prince-General Wu Sangui and their families. The royal family had made it clear that they would send a delegation to the funeral but who exactly would be going was not confirmed until today.

The Prince and Princess, as well as their families, were greeted with as much warmth and honor as a state in such deep morning as Xiomera could muster. Disembarking from a plane almost as soon as they had landed, the Princess made a short speech to the assembled delegates and press.

" It is under the most saddening circumstances that I have the honor of being hosted by Xiomera. My brother and I both knew the emperor personally and had enormous respect for the man. My mother, the God Empress weeps with Xiomera. In our culture, it is common for those who hold the rank of Emperor to refer to themselves as dragons. But it is so rare for people to live up to that designation. Emperor Topilpopoca showed us all that it not only is possible to live up to that title. It's possible to go above it. Thank you"


Shortly after the speech, the delegation was taken by armored car to Atlichoyoayan Palace where they will be staying while they are in shen. The delegation was greeted by warm cheers from the morning crowds. The Imperial delegation is expected to stay till after the selection of a new Emperor is complete

At 9:22 the first units of the Dhanzian police force, moved in to create a perimeter around the school. At 9:30, police established a dialogue with the hostage-takers, and have tried to negotiate with these radical thugs.
The MLY, has published a list of demands, demand freedom for the Yan provice, and for the Shen minority, to leave what the Septas view as their traditional homeland.

((update))

HOSTAGES LIBERATED.
At 11:03, two hours into the deadly standoff, the EIU Squad 3, Elite members of the Imperial guard, trained for stealthy urban warfare, arrived on seen, sent by the Empress herself, to rescue the shen citizens.

The group of 30 commands, took command of the situation. After supplying the local police with gas masks, they released a localized Airborn anesthetic, into the school, causing the attacker to pass out.

God-Empress Wu officially endorse Yauhmi

At 7 a.m. local time, Xiomerians following the official social media accounts of the Shen Embassy, found a video posted to their feeds. This Is not unusual since the embassy regularly post videos about diplomatic or cultural functions they are hosting as well as videos talking about the deep relationship the two countries share. But this one is far different than any video they have ever posted.

Making an extremely rare appearance in person, a video featuring Empress Wu, dressed in full Imperial regalia and sitting on the Heavenly Throne within the golden Tower, has spread across the net like wildfire. In it the elusive head of state official officially endorsed former Empress Yaumi as the shens prefered candidate for the obsidian throne.

In the short 5 minute video the empress spoke in Xiomeran Huenyan,( the first time she has ever been recorded speaking another language) highlighted the career of the empress as well as the personal relationship that they have shared since her husband was elected empress.

She complimented the empress's vision for the future and ended the endorsement speech by saying

" i have enormous respect for Tepilcayot, but it is my belief, informed by my years of personal friendship that only Yauhmi truly understands the complexities of the world we live in and possesses the right characteristics to continue Xiomeras path of prosperity and progress.

And she is the only candidate I trust to maintain the essential relationship that our two Nations have enjoyed for so many decades.

So because of her vision, her experience, her wisdom, and her knowledge I give my full support and endorsement to Yaumi, and I ask all of those experts who are going to be choosing the future of Xiomera, to lend her your support as well. With her on the obsidian throne, our people can grow strong together"

The exact implications of the endorsements are unknown. The God Empress consistently pulls over 65% amongst the general populace, one of the most popular foreign leaders second only to the president of kerille amongst average citizens, as well as having strong ties to the business community, as Xiomeran businesses have taken advantage of Shens status as one of the fastest growing economies on the planet to invest heavily in the nation.

Analysts are sure to be working overtime to see exactly how this endorsement will affect election in the days to come

Guns & Gold. Weapons industry stocks on the rise!



It was a busy day at the Guild Square Exchange as news relating to the Kelowna Stars successful test firing of an InterContinental missile hit the market. Fears and jeers cause violence swings in the commodity and Export manufacturing sector, but nowhere saw the greatest gains than the defence industry.

Rumors of the Shen Navy tripling its order of Sousou class anti-submarine Destroyers from 2 to 6, as well as other negative reactions from around the world, has sparked fears of a potential Naval arms race. Fears that are fueling a rapid rise in the stock of arms manufacturers the world over.

While many investors are keen to take advantage of this opportunity, with one going so far as to calling it "an act of alchemy, literally turning steel into gold" other investors are advising caution

" we've seen this beforeh" Hui Yan, a long-time Guild Square Trader told the journal

" rises in international tensions can have dramatic short term effects on the market. How many times have we seen the market return to normal after those tensions have passed? It's important for people to not get too caught up in the short-term trends, or they risk losing their robes when the stock prices normalize."

While their stock prices are rising industry leaders are saying that they are committed to meeting the world's defense needs no matter what they will be.

There are more things alike, between the Shen and the Laucnorians then there are things diffrent. It is my hope that the dragon and the butterfly may fly side by side, and prosper together. Thank you.”

Minister Pavía was quoted saying “I am very happy to be here today to welcome Ambassador Zhang Xiao to Lauchenoiria today. This is a vital move towards improving our relationship with the Shen Empire, and I am glad we are finally taking this important step."

After the ceremony, the Ambassador served a traditional shen lunch to all those in attendance, and the embassy staff got to work, procession vacation visa applications.

Empress Yahumi Declares Victory.

After weeks of debate, discussion and intrigue, the council of experts has finally made their decision. The Hueyi Tecocalli has announced that Empress Yahumi, has been declared the successor to her husbands legacy, and has been elected to sit on the obsidian throne.

This is a shock to many going into the election, with most people prediction that Teplicayotl would be elected emperor, but a combination of strategic endorsement, smart lobbying efforts, and excellent handling of accusations of having an affair, has proven them wrong.

The God-Empress released a statement congratulating the new empress, saying

“I am overjoyed, that the Council of Experts have made the right choice, and picked the woman who is truly the most capable of her countrymen, to lead the nation. The Shen Empire wish that heaven bless your Reign. “

While there is no dought many challenges ahead for the new regime in Xiomera, the Empress can no dought sleep a little more soundly tonight, knowing that the hard-fought campaign is over.

We at the GJS editorial team would also like to take a moment to congratulate the empress and good fortune in her years to come.

During the 45 minute address and the following 30 minutes question and answer section with the assembled students, president Greenwood spoke on a number of topics. She spoke on her life growing up in the matriarchy, as well as on the finer points of the feminist ideology that guides her Republic. The students asked her questions about her life, her opinion on the state of Imperial politics, as well as what she plans to do now that she has stepped down from her position as president.

Shen Condemns Zamastan
After an emergency session of the Imperial committee, the Shen Empire has condemned Zamastanan’s violation of the territorial waters of Xiomera.

In what the Celestial Palace is calling "A naked act of aggression, that serves only to exacerbate an already fragile situation" a task force of Zamastanian warships, entered into the territorial waters of the Xiomera, after which they were intercepted by a defensive task force, and after a brief standoff return to the open ocean, where the Xiomeran task force has continued to shadow them, making sure they do not violate their waters again.

Foreign minister Shi Riue said of the incident, " There is no reason for a military task force to be so close to a nation's territorial Waters as to risk accidentally crossing into them as the Zamastan has admitted to doing. We call on President Sakzi to abandon such provocative actions that threaten the peace and stability of the region. I would remind the President of the old shen proverb. Those who seek war often find it"

When asked for comment, Ambassador Aaron Pilon (Zamastans Ambassador to Shen) released the following statement

"Zamastan fully condemns Xiomera and fervently denies any extension of wrongdoing beyond sailing into Xiomeran waters. While, yes, we do acknowledge that our fleet entered Xiomeran territory, the fringe of which that we entered did not warrant the escalation that the Xiomerans put towards us. We condemn Empress Yauhmi for her violent and dangerous escalation of force that could have easily resulted in injury, death, and far worse."

With this new incident tensions between the two nations seem to be at an all-time high, Alice Lancaster of Eiria has called for a summit, to deescalate tensions. Foreign Minister Shi release a statement saying shen would attend any such summit.

Whether the two belligerent powers would agree to such a summit, is unknown.

THE EMPRESS IS DEAD! LONG LIVE THE EMPRESS!

"Last night, at approximately 11:00pm, local time, Wu Zhou God-empress of Shen, Khagan of Monogon, lord of the south dragon, Heaven's chosen arbiter, and mother of all her subjects, passed away peacefully in her sleep. God Empress Wu Zhao, as her first action has declared 10 days of mourning " - official Palace statement

This shocking news shakes the Empire to its very core. God Empress Wu zhou, who has ruled with virtue and strength for over 64 years, has finally passed on into the next World leaving her daughter Wu Zhao as the 113th Sovereign of Shen.

No ruler in the history of the Empire has sat on the throne during a more dramatic transformation of the empire. Empress Wu Zhou herself put it best when she famously said "I was born in an Empire of farms and I will die in Empire of factories"

Now as the nation enters 10 days of mourning all eyes turn to be new Sovereign of the empire. Wu Zhoa is the youngest of the deceased Empress has children at 42. She has had an active life involved in the nation's politics since she was a little girl including numerous foreign trips she undertook as a representative of her mother.

at sunrise today she was officially coordinated and rose to godhood, in the traditional ceremony held within the throne room of the Golden Tower.

The funeral has been set for November 30th with delegations from around the world expected to attend. Hotels are already filling up with bookings for people planning to travel to the capital to watch the funeral procession pass-through Sharanfo.

Many analysts are attempting to predict what pass the Empire will take with this new leader. But for now, the citizens are only morning for the loss of what many view as the greatest ruler the Empire has had in centuries.
