From the Office of the Transportation Minister and the City Council of Dartha

This is an official notice that the Transportation Ministry of the Rihan Republic, in conjunction with the City Council of Dartha, hereby issues tender for interested parties to submit bids to construct the long-awaited Dartha Metropolitan Railway system (to be called the H'sarin). Both the Ministry and the City Council believe this project to be vital to the long-term development and growth of our glorious capital city and the surrounding region which is estimated to have a population of over 4 million within the next decade. Therefore, the Ministry is working as quickly as possible to design this project so that construction can begin as soon as possible. It is intended to have four lines to start, but designs will incorporate the possibility for additional expansion as needed. The budget allotted for the entirety of the project is 13.12 billion Chaks. The City Council has requested that the first line be ready for operation no later than Brax (March) 2021, which means the construction party (or consortium of companies) who is selected by this joint effort must have a record of maintaining firm construction project management and organization. The initial conditions set are the following:

  • The project must be built using the newly-endorsed Republican Standard track gauge of 7 feet
  • Cooperate with Amosarr, the Republic's established carriage works (who will also be responsible for manufacturing the high-speed trainsets for the Dartha-Peldred line amongst others to built in the future) to test the eventual trainsets in advance of revenue service in conjunction with the public transport operator, Yhfillain.

All interested parties must submit their relevant documentation no later than the close of business 31 Khaidev (December) 2018.

TO: The @Rihan Republic, the City of Dartha and Amosarr Corporation

Salutations,

my name is Liên Viênxuân, CEO of Elegy Corporation.

In case you are unaware of my company, Elegy is responsible for ongoing projects such as the Manamana Canal, the construction of the new city of Tenma in the Sunset Sea Islands and the reconstruction of the city centre of Miyako, the capital of the State of Kipan. Furthermore, the vast majority of systems making up the infrastructure of the Radiant Republic of the Sunset Sea Islands has been at least partially designed and manufactured by Elegy Corporation. This includes the high-speed railway network of the Greater Yūyake Metropolitan Area and the train lines connecting the capital to other cities throughout the nation.

Over the course of these projects, significant amounts of knowledge and expertise have been amassed, leading us to the confidence to throw our hat into this ring. I would be very pleased if a meeting between representatives of all involved parties and me could be arranged to discuss the details of this cooperation.

Furthermore, we would like to express our willingness to cooperate with more than just one company. If we were to work together with several foreign companies, including Amosarr, we are sure that the exchange of expertise would benefit all parties, whilst also increasing the quality of the final product.

To fruitful cooperation,

From the Office of the Transportation Minister and the City Council of Dartha

This is the final reminder that the deadline for any and all bids by interested parties concerning the construction of the Dartha Metropolitan Railway (H'sarin) is the close of business on 31 Khaidev (December) 2018. At the moment, both cooperative partners have received two bids: the Elegy Corporation of the Sunset Sea Islands and an internal offer by Kovex. Following the passing of the deadline, all offers will be reviewed and the finalist will be announced on 5 Z'at (January), 2019. It is expected that the confirmed partner will begin work in earnest to meet the first line's completion by Brax (March) 2021.

To: The Republican Transportation Minister, the City Council of Dartha, and Amosarr

Greetings,

We have been keeping a close eye on the prospects of getting involved in the Rihannsu economy since the economy was further opened by your illustrious and honorable Senate. We recognize the importance and role of mass transportation plays in moving people across large urban centers as a means to curtail congestion, spark economic development, and give new life to areas long ignored. Our board has deliberated extensively and we are making it known that we will be filing our own bid for the prestigious opportunity to build your metro system. We can bring our extensive conglomerate and wide-ranging resources upon this project to help speed up the construction and bring the network to substantial completion within five years.

Like many of our fellow rivals on the Kipanese Islands, many of us operate our own private railways in competition with the national railways. While they primarily focus on long-distance travel, all of us on the corporate side specializes in commuter services which fit perfectly into this project's scope and purpose. However, it is important for us to note that we do not run our trains at the required gauge of 7 feet, but rather a width comparable to lines operated in Fulgistan, as an example. But we will comply with the mandate set in the tender briefing and we will work collaboratively with the Ministry to ensure we meet all regulations and design elements.

Samura does construct (and by extension utilizes) its own rolling stock but we also will comply with the requirement to work alongside Amosarr. If we are selected, we will within a week of finalizing the deal, deploy upwards of 100 engineers to their production facilities to begin in earnest to design the rolling stock. We will ensure that upwards of 60% of the materials used in the rolling stock and nearly 80% of the resources used to build the track, tunnels, and other structures will be sourced from Rihan itself. Though we will maintain the primary lead in the construction of the system, we will be relying upon labor from within Rihan to build under direction from Kipanese engineers and local authorities overseers.

To show that we are serious about working with the relevant parties to see this project to a remarkable success that can be replicated elsewhere in the Republic and around the world, we will openly state that we will be able to come under budget in less time, by a measure of approximately 21.2%. We do hope that Samura Heavy Industries is ultimately selected to help build this all-important and life-changing transportation system, one that will be as bold, proud, and elaborate as the Rihan Republic.

Sincerely,

Tatsushima Samura

CEO

From the Office of the Transportation Minister and the City Council of Dartha

Both the Ministry and the Dartha City Council have decided to extend the deadline by a period of forty-eight hours as we have been informed that another bid for the project is currently being finished and being ratified by that entity's Board of Directors. Though this does go against the original process, both parties also concurred that it is important to see all the available options on the table before making offers to a likely partner or multiple. The date for a selection announcement will not change in light of this extension.

Jochi Heavy Industries
What Jochi Makes, The World Takes

It is said, honored deihur, that no man is an island. So too a metropolitan subway. When the effort is undertaken to construct a metro, especially for a large city like Dartha, the chief concern must be synergy and integration, to maximize efficiency, ease of use, and frugality. Jochi was the driving force behind the innovative Bogd Gioro Metropolitan Area Public Transit System, a fully integrated system of metropolitan railway, aboveground rail, light rail, bus, and collectivized taxi companies. This system services over one million riders daily in the Bogd Gioro greater metropolitan area, one of the largest such systems in Alharu. This experience has not only granted Jochi with a wealth of knowledge on transport synergy and integration, but also vital data on the engineering of a subway in a warm and humid climate, much as exists in the Rihan Republic. It is our sincere hope that the Ministry of Transportation will accept our bid to begin construction on the Dartha Metropolitan Railway.

Re: Construction of the Dartha Metro System

To: Jochi Heavy Industries, Bogd Gioro, @Fulgistan

At my instruction as Minister, and with the full backing of the Dartha City Council, your firm is hereby requested to accelerate its work in completing the first route, the Purple Line, by no later than Lior (September) 2020. Your firm is additionally requested to get all remaining lines in operation by the beginning of Brax (March) 2022. To aid in achieving this revised timeline, the Ministry will immediately undertake all design and engineering work in conjunction with Kovex and will furnish the final plans to Jochi to construct as soon as Brax (March) 2020 so that construction can begin promptly.

To ensure timely delivery based on the dates set above, both the Ministry and the City Council will increase the available budget from 13.12 billion Chaks to 20.9 billion Chaks including rolling stock from Amosarr. We expect to see results.

Transportation Minister

      I have been doing some initial contemplation over what a prospective expansion of the Republic may look like. Given that Aurelia is rather devoid of nations, it may be prudent to become the 'big' nation. None of this is set in stone but it would occur in two parts over the next year. The map below is for discussion purposes only.

      Part 1: The area between the current red border and everything within the expanded yellow line would occur during the course of the next six months. It is within this area that involves 'Enolia,' a people the Republic attempted to conquer, only be to defeated horribly in what ultimately became a war of attrition. Tensions will rise with Enolia along the eastern borders and this only one element of the political game that will be occurring. As many of you have seen, there is a hidden war between ambitious senators over replacing Terix, the current Praetor. Whoever succeeds him may use the tensions with Enolia to bolster their political fortunes, and secure more support by promising the wealth of the land in exchange for funding the war which they, the Republic would win. As you can see, this land would also look to be heavily fertile, making the Republic perhaps one of the most extensive food exporters. This yellow-area expansion would also unlock new mineral resources to further accelerate industrialization and additional ore exports to more industrial-heavy states. I would be kinda be treating this expansion in the same way as the Roman Republic expanded into Spain or Asia. I am also contemplating a situation where the Praetor who led this war may inevitably be removed by a more 'consensus' individual in due time because they are discovered doing some less than 'honorable' things. This could also be an opportunity to provide the region with a Tiberius/Gaius Gracchus moment of very, very influential commoner magistrates demanding more from the far more powerful Senate.
      Part 2: The area between the current red border on the north and all the land within the teal line (including an unseen section at the top of the forked rivers) this would happen at towards the end of next year. It is my current inclination for a different individual or perhaps even a yet-to-be-created Senate faction will convince enough members in the chamber to emancipate all the remaining Zelvorians [who make up the largest contingent of remaining slaves], and give them an opportunity to resettle, abet far from the center of the Republic, to the more less agricultural nice and far more mountainous north. They would be given some level of political autonomy as a client state, though they would still be dominated by the Rihannsu. Again, this would allow the Republic to triple, if not quadruple mining potential, giving the state a massive cash cow.
      Some of you are probably asking why I am not looking instead to the west of the Republic? There are two reasons: firstly, based on what I've read of Kipan's factbook, I have the inclination to believe that his former Imperial colonies are probably over there and I foresee him as a long-term trading partner and would prefer to have a friendly relationship rather than a potential rival. Secondly, Asgeirria and the Republic have a mutual understanding concerning the Aurelian continent that seems to have an interest in the western coastline.
      This is just the beginning of the conversation and I welcome everyone to help me develop/refine/suggest - or even participate to some extent. I firmly believe that this two-part expansion (which would be dubbed the 'Second Expansionst Age') will have profound impacts on Aurelia and the wider global community.

      By Proclamation of the Rihan Senate
      The Senate, at the behest of the Rihannsu people, do hereby affirm their intentions of developing meaningful relations with nations of the wider world. With the Senate's declaration, the Praetor, Mathon Terix, will comply and immediately begin to make all preparations related to this. He has appointed Senator Tevus Pranara to be responsible for representing the Senate and the People, alongside his ongoing Senatorial duties. The Rihannsu, united as one, is ready to talk, to trade, and to learn.
