  1. Time for another google form questionnaire for feedback! https://forms.gle/sWAauvaRNqBDdsHJ7
  2. NEWS » WURLD President Chen Jiang gives an official statement on the conflict in Ceris. Currently no definite word on whether or not the State will be sending aid towards the people of Ceris. President says "if we can, we will." WANG SHUN | 30 MAY 2020 (Pictured) War-torn houses in Ceris in on-going conflict. After several months of deliberation by the State, President Chen Jiang said the following in a Presidential Conference: "Our hearts ache for the people of Ceris, hearing the suffering they are all going through. Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to officially support the people of Ceris, but we will do everything in our power politically to lessen their suffering. Also, at this time, the State does not officially recognize any claims on the island, as the political landscape is constantly changing, and we want to ensure we are supporting the government that will support the people of Ceris. I will be answering questions now on the State's stance towards the current conflict." One of the questions asked by one of our correspondents, Liu Ru, was whether aid was being considered, even if it wasn't possible at the moment. "If we can, we will. The State would like to support all those who are suffering, but we must look inward and help our own people before we can go outward and help others." Another question from a correspondent of the River Flows news agency asked President Chen Jiang if any troops would be moved from the northern border to assist in the conflict of Ceris. "Like I said, the State is not recognizing any claims on Ceris at this time. Sending our troops in would mean either supporting one side, or becoming our own side and . Also, we still must protect our own border, and the Beifang-Diren are armed on our border. Leaving would mean the end of the State." The questions then took a turn towards the Beifang-Diren border, such as whether or not the State would be going to war with the Diren to secure the north. "We have no plans to declare war on our northern neighbor. We are currently in talks the Prime Minister to sort out this border trouble and get our troops back to their loving wives." After this, President Chen Jiang ended the press conference and refused to answer any further questions. SOURCE: CHEN JIANG, HEIHE KNOWLEDGE
  3. Probably should have done this earlier I'm claiming Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, President of Turkey, as Li Feng OTL
  4. To gather up everyone's thoughts on the current reworks, here's a questionnaire! https://forms.gle/dvGDwf1Yo9uETSTD9 Feel free to continue discussing the changes here and on the Discord. This Google form just helps us gauge the current responses and thoughts to what we've done so far.
  5. NEWS » HEIHEGUO UPDATE: Peacekeeper authorities release information on yesterday's deadly train crash. The conductor of one of the trains says, "the brakes just stopped working." However, Peacekeeper investigators say that the brakes were tested and worked fine. WANG SHUN | 13 MAY 2020 Spokesman Li Feng, pictured above, at SPF Conference 10052020-01. Following the railway accident yesterday, the 9th of May 2020, State Peacekeepers have been sent to investigate the cause behind the deadly accident. Today, spokesman Li Feng has announced the findings of the State Peacekeeper Force investigation. The conductor of the stationary train claimed that he had been at the station for about ten minutes before the second train came and rear-ended his. However, the second conductor, who is currently in critical condition, claims that the train had suddenly stopped right in front of him. After video evidence proved that the stationary train had been stopped for about nine minutes before the accident, the second conductor, Liu Changpu, claimed that the brakes on his train just "stopped working," and that he couldn't slow down in time. Disproving him yet again, the SPF investigators showed Liu Changpu that the salvaged brakes worked fine. After this, Li Feng reported that Liu Changpu confessed to be "meditating" when the accident happened. He has been charged for "domestic terrorism" and will be put into a State prison as soon as he recovers. Despite a mechanical malfunction being ruled out, President Chen Jiang announced after the SPF conference that he would be putting forth a new act to increase the budget for the Ministry of Transport. "Even if yesterday's accident wasn't caused by a mechanical malfunction, it is undeniable that State's railways are in a sorry state. We must increase the budget to the Ministry of Transport and modernize our holy State's infrastructure to ensure accidents like these never happen again." The total amount to be allocated to the Ministry and how it will be used is currently unknown. Shengren Hei Jingyi also commented on the recent disaster, letting the country know that the victims of the accident have all passed on to the afterlife. He then also said that, all of the currently hospitalized who faithfully believe in the Church and State shall be healed very soon.

  6. Some more things that I'd like to add: Figure out what is and isn't canon about the Sanar system, and make separate articles for all of the astrological bodies, instead of just having everything link to the Eurth page. Going through each of the organizations of Eurth and ensuring that they actually have more than just an infobox (or marking them for deletion if they're deemed no longer necessary). Ensuring that all files related to Eurth actually have the Eurth category (and or switching them from the Europa category to Eurth). Standardize some of the older articles, such as Armed Forces or List of freedom indices, to have them better match some Wikipedia counterparts. i.e. List of countries by number of military and paramilitary personnel / Military and List of freedom indices Ensure all IIWiki articles about Eurth include the "Region icon Eurth" template. Make articles for each of the major oceans, and perhaps some of the major seas as well. Change the main Eurth article to more closely match the Wikipedia Earth article. These are just a few more examples off the top of my head. What do you guys think about these?
  7. NEWS » HEIHEGUO Thirty dead and over fifty injured after a major railway accident. The Heiheren Railway Authority is currently unsure of the cause, but say that Peacekeeper forces are currently investigating into the incident. WANG SHUN | 9 MAY 2020 A general view of people by the wreckage after two passenger trains collided close to Gungkoshi. Reports state at least 30 people were killed and many more injured when the two trains collided head on. Two passenger trains collided this Saturday, the 9th of May 2020, just outside of the major port city of Gungkoshi, killing at least 30 people and injuring about 52, according to two medical officials. A statement by the Heiheren Railways Authority (HRA) said a train traveling to Gungkoshi from Xincheng crashed into the back of another train, which was waiting at a small station in the Fenlie region, just North of Gungkoshi. The stationary train had just arrived from Port Gungkoshi when it was hit, according to the statement released by the HRA. The statement did not say what caused the accident, saying only that the SPF would be investigating. Video footage from the scene showed mangled train coaches on the tracks as hundreds of onlookers and victims' relatives gathered around on both sides of the tracks. Ambulances were standing by and Peacekeepers were deployed to keep the onlookers away from the scene of the disaster. Today's accident was the deadliest rail accident since 2010, when at least 40 people were killed when two commuter trains collided near Xincheng. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the victims of this awful accident. SOURCE: HEIHE KNOWLEDGE, HEIHEREN RAILWAYS AUTHORITY
  8. Nation in Eurth: Heiheguo Flag: (flag is temporary, since I can't access my phone atm and make it any better, but this is the general idea of it. Original idea by @Yeosan) Capital name: Xincheng Capital location: Factbook link: http://www.europans.com/topic/5786-wip-holy-state-of-heihe-黑河圣国/ and https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Heiheguo Newsroom link: http://www.europans.com/topic/5779-heihe-knowledge-黑河知识/?tab=comments#comment-40015285 Culture: The best comparison for the culture of the Uyghurs. In simpler terms, Near Eastern culture with East Asian influences (that's a lot of east). Climate: Heiheren has an unusually hot, sunny and dry climate. Average high temperatures are high in the South but very to extremely high in the rest of the country during summer. The cooler Tiauhai winds consistently blow over the Southern sea coast, which helps to get more moderated temperatures, especially at the height of the summertime. The deserts to the North-West of bring dusts that blows in during the Spring or early Summer. The dust brings daytime temperatures over 38°C (100°F) and sometimes over 48°C (119°F) in the interior, while the relative humidity can drop to 5% or even less. The absolute highest temperatures in Heiheguo occur when the desert dust blows. The weather is always sunny and clear in Heiheguo. It is one of the least cloudy and least rainy regions on Eurth. (haha the climate guy has a huge description for the climate) Location: I don't actually have access to my phone atm (reasons I don't want to get into), so I can't send over the mock-up borders I had made. However, @Orioni should have it in his Discord DMs, so I hope that's sufficient enough. History: The first recorded instance of a civilization on the Heihe river was in 2500 BCE, believing to have come from the East across the Alharun Desert. Around 2000 BCE, the two Kingdoms of Lower and Higher Heiheguo were united under (placeholder name). Sometime in 1200 BCE, the Heihe Kingdom completely collapsed. The cause is currently unknown, but this collapse may have lead to the loss of the original Heiheren language. In the early 2011, Heiheguo had an election for the President of Heiheguo. Chen Jiang won for a third term, being blessed by the Shengren Hei Jingyi in early 2012. In 2012, Heiheguo officially joined LAANN as a full member-state. In 2018, a census was held across the nation, leading to a more accurate understanding of the demographics of the country. The history and culture are still a bit fuzzy, but they're getting closer and closer to becoming fully fleshed out. If there's any questions, feel free to ask! Nation Name: Heiheguo Population: MEDIUM GDP per capita: LOW Area: LOW I don't have definite numbers for any of these yet (especially not area), but will be sure to figure them out ASAP.
  9. Just saw this topic, didn't even know it was a thing and was sort of doing it already! First, when it comes to article names, from what I've read, Wikipedia only ever capitalizes proper nouns, acronyms, and the first word in an article. So, "List of Spoken Languages on Eurth" would be "List of spoken language on Eurth". Similarly, when talking about something about a nation, i.e. a military, currency, language of a nation, the proper way to name the article would be "Currency of the United States of America" or something similar. For this reason, the previously mentioned article would go from "List of spoken languages on Eurth" to "List of spoken languages of Eurth". That being said, I do like @Shffahkia's suggestion to just have Eurth be in parentheses. Second, I've already made an Alharu category for articles and categories that would be under it. Should we go ahead and make a category for every continent, and put it under Eurth? Every article for the region would still have the "Eurth" category, but it would also have the "Europa" or "Alharu" or "Thalassa" category if it also related to those continents. Third, I can go through pretty much all of the articles with the Europa category and add the Eurth category to them, as well as double check that they actually are in Europa or not. Would this be alright? Would be a manual fix but not too difficult, just tedious.

  11. Heiheguo (/heiːhɣgwoː/ ʜᴀʏ-hoo-gwoh; Huang: 黑河国; pinyin: Hēihé guó; literally: 'Black River State'), officially the Holy State of Heihe (Huang: 黑河圣国; pinyin: Hēihé shèng guó; literally: 'Holy State of the Black River'), is a country in Western Alharu. Heiheguo is bordered by [NPC nation] to the North-east and across the Tiauhai Sea lies Selayar. The country covers a land area of (placeholder) square kilometers (placeholder square miles) and had an estimated population of (placeholder) in 2018. Heiheguo is the [placeholder] most populous nation in Alharu and the [placeholder number] most populous nation in the wurld. The country is comprised of 11 major districts, called governorates, and 67 minor districts, called regions. Heiheguo is considered a small power in Alharu and wurldwide. This is mainly due to its inability to properly take advantage of the land it claims outside of the Heihe river. This lack of useable land is the leading factor as to Heiheguo's stagnant low-income economy and population. Heiheguo is a member state of the League of Alharu and Aurelian Native Nations. Names The Anglish spelling "Heiheguo" is a aromanizatation of the nation's common name in Simplified Huang (黑河国). It is also sometimes refered to as "Heiheshenguo", the aromanization of the nation's official name (黑河圣国). Both of these names come from the Heiheren name for the river system the country surrounds, Heihe (Huang: 黑河; literally: Black River). Despite the Huang name for the river including the word "river", it is commonly referred as the "Heihe river" in Anglish. The name "Heiheguo" is thought to originally have been an endonym given by the nations of the Yellow Empire. What the Heiheren originally called themselves is currently unknown. History Ancient history The first recorded instance of a civilization on the Heie river was in 2500 BCE, believing to have come from the East across the Alharun Desert. Around 2000 BCE, the two Kingdoms of Lower and Higher Heiheguo were united under (placeholder name). Sometime in 1200 BCE, the Heihe Kingdom completely collapsed. The cause is currently unknown, but this collapse may have lead to the loss of the original Heiheren language. 2000s to present In the early 2011, Heiheguo had an election for the President of Heiheguo. Chen Jiang won for a third term, being blessed by the Shengren Hei Jingyi in early 2012. In 2012, Heiheguo officially joined LAANN as a full member-state. In 2018, a census was held across the nation, leading to a more accurate understanding of the demographics of the country. Geography Heiheguo's territory lies primarily between latitudes 17° and 23°N, and longitudes 90° and 104°W (temporary numbers). To the South is the Tiauhai coast. Due to the extreme aridity of Heiheguo's climate, population centers are concentrated along the narrow Heihe valley and delta, meaning that about 99% of the population uses about 10% of the total land area. 98% of Heiheren live on 8% of the territory (temporary numbers). Climate Heiheren has an unusually hot, sunny and dry climate. Average high temperatures are high in the South but very to extremely high in the rest of the country during summer. The cooler Tiauhai winds consistently blow over the Southern sea coast, which helps to get more moderated temperatures, especially at the height of the summertime. The deserts to the North-West of bring dusts that blows in during the Spring or early Summer. The dust brings daytime temperatures over 38°C (°F) and sometimes over 48°C (°F) in the interior, while the relative humidity can drop to 5% or even less. The absolute highest temperatures in Heiheguo occur when the desert dust blows. The weather is always sunny and clear in Heiheguo. It is one of the least cloudy and least rainy regions on Eurth. Government and politics Heiheguo is a Theocratic Presidential State. What this means exactly is that Heiheguo has a Shengren, or Holy leader, who is the HoS, and a President, who is the HoG. While the President is democratically elected, the Shengren is always a descendant or relative of the Shengren before him. Government positions are exclusive to males only, with the exclusion of the Mayor of cities or towns. Military The Holy Heihe Defense Forces consist of the Land Forces, the Naval Forces and the Air Force. The Heihe Guard and State Peacekeeper Force operate as parts of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (placeholder name) in peacetime, though they can be subordinated to the Navy and (placeholder) Commands respectively in wartime, during which they both act as garrisons to keep the peace. The Chief of Defense of Heiheguo is appointed by the President and approved by the Shengren, though the President can vote for himself. The Chief of Defense is responsible for matters of national security and the adequate preparation of the armed forces to defend the country. However, the authority to declare war rests on the Shengren and the President, though the latter must have the approval of the former. Law enforcement and crime The law of Heiheguo is enforced by the State Peacekeeper Force, also known as the SPF. They are in charge of both ensuring lawbreakers are caught and imprisoned, and ensuring the safety of the Heiheren government. Those who speak out against the government or a decision made by a government official have been known to be arrested and, later, executed under the justification of "domestic terrorism". Other common crimes include: loitering, burglary, rape, assault and battery, and child abuse. Freedom of the press The Heiheren government is quite strict on what is and what isn't allowed to be talked about in the media. For example, while the reports on domestic terrorists are allowed to be released to the public, no news agency is allowed to give a negative opinion or spin on the incident. Similarly, no news article must ever portray the government or any of the officials in a negative light. Foreign relations Heiheguo is involved in LAANN as a member-state. Administrative divisions Heiheguo is divided into 11 governorates. The governorates are further divided into regions. The regions contain towns and villages. Each governorate has a capital, sometimes carrying the same name as the governorate. Demographics The population of Heiheguo is predominantly Heiheren, with a small percentage claiming other nationalities. Religion Religion in Heiheguo is mandated by the State. The religion itself seems to be similar to the ancient Heiheren religion of the Heihe Kingdom, though with very minor changes. The center of the Heiheren religion is the river their nation is built around. The water itself is considered holy to them. See also IIWiki Article Heihe Knowledge
  12. NEWS » SLICE OF LIFE Grandmother of 35 reminds us what it means to be "Heiheren". "Everyone I meet says that I remind them of their own grandmother." LIU QIANG | 1 MAY 2020 Wang Ying, pictured above, is a grandmother of 12 children and a total of 35 grandchildren. What does it mean to be "Heiheren"? Maybe you could ask Wang Ying, a 82 year old grandmother of 35 who seems to show off exactly what it means. A loving, religious, charitable widow who does her best to be there for her family, community, and country. "I go out every Friday to serve my community in any way I can. I give out fish and bread to my neighbors and even to random strangers I've never met. Almost everyone knows me nowadays, though. Everyone I meet says that I remind them of their own grandmother." She's become famous around the Maoyishi Governorate for her Sayadia and pita bread. She says that her secret ingredient is love; isn't that just adorable? Not only is she so giving to others, but she also is a devote Heihe follower. "Oh yes, I give my share to the church every week. I pray and fast and give sacrifice to the Gods. It's only right, after all that they've given me." And what haven't they given this sweet old lady? She has a large, loving family, something all of us should strive for, and lives in a beautiful house with her oldest son and daughter-in-law. "I'm so grateful to have a son like Wang Chao. He reminds me so much of his father, bless his soul. I know he'd be proud of where his first-born is today, with his wife and four children, proudly continuing the Wang family name." Her other eleven children, seven sons and three daughters, all live close by. I know I would too, after getting a sample of her famous dishes! But she isn't just blessed by the Gods to give all of us a little smile in the morning or to serve us food. Wang Ying has something to teach everyone (even us men!). That a positive outlook on life can really get you far. "I always say: 'do to others what you want done to you'. It's a simple rule that I live by which has gotten me to this old age, and I'm sure will keep me going for years to come." SOURCE: HEIHE KNOWLEDGE
  13. NEWS » HEIHEGUO 26 charged with domestic terrorism, Shengren Hei Jingyi approves death penalty sentencing. President Chen Jiang applauds the State Peacekeepers for their excellent work in detaining these dangerous enemies of the State. LI SHUN | 28 APRIL 2020 The 26 men have been detained and sentenced to death by the Shengren, Hei Jingyi. At 8:00 AM today, the State Peacekeeper Force (SPF) released a report detailing the crimes of 26 terrorists, and said that they are now under custody and awaiting sentences. The sentences came just 4 hours later at 12:05 PM, as another report was released, with Shengren Hei Jingyi's stamp of approval to sentence all 26 men to death by hanging. While the charges for each criminal deviated slightly, all of them were charged with slandering the State and plotting the upheaval of society. The SPF says in their report that all of these men were conspiring to overthrow the President, the Shengren, and dismantle the entire government. In a press conference later in the day at 6:30 PM, Li Feng, a spokesperson of the SPF, revealed that the men were apprehended late last night. He also revealed that these criminals have been under surveillance for several weeks now, and they are confident that they have captured all of the conspirators. We reached out to President Chen Jiang to get his thoughts about the crimes and sentencing of these terrorists. This is what he had to say on the subject: "These recent attacks towards the government is also an attack on Heiheguo itself. Our way of life is being attacked here. The detainment of these criminals fills me with relief. As for the sentencing, it will be a greater mercy for these men move on to their next life than to rot in a cell." The families and close friends of these men are currently under investigation for aiding in their conspiracy. We will keep you updated with any further developments in this story.

  14. Also, not so much related to discussion on climate, but what do you guys think about me changing the name of this topic to something like "Eurth Map Rework"? The map is certainly getting some major updates as of late, and this seems to be where most of that is discussed and shared.
