News of the Empire

R: Welcome to News of the Empire, i'm Rajev and here is the news for today.

R: Futher development into yesterday's truck investigation has found a foreign business by the name of 'Aloe drink' has been secretly funding the Narku cultist. The company has been put under quarantine until further notice and the CEO will appear in high court but in the mean time he is currently being interrogated by the police force with his house and belongings being repossesed. 

R: In other news, a new mosque has been constructed in central Aurum as part of the 'embrace all' project which the government started last year. The Emperor attended the Mosque's first prayer early today along with the many muslims citizens, with the Adhan being heard for the first time in Aurum with people present stating "it sounded glorious" and "Allah is most definitely proud of this country".  The Emperor himself gave a speech after prayer expressing his love of islamic history in Indo-Stan and went on to say that not only does this event show the embracement and development of the nation but him praying shows that God comes in many forms and the Dragon is, to him, simply another name for Allah. Indeed we do have a most wise and great leader.

R: Coming up, the streets of Aurum are becoming more alive by the day as we approach 'Week of the Dragon', mountainous plateaus in the valley of Dàha has recently revealed a small cave entrance after a rockslide occured, and Prime Minister Jin Tzu makes visits to 5 A Level schools to talk to students about the future of politics. But first Jingem with the weather, Jingem.

J: Thank you Rajev. 

J:Well we are seeing the certain change of seasons earlier than expected, small amounts of Cherry blossom have been seen already budding in the Southern regions despite there still being a coldish breeze passing through, whilst in the North however *chuckles* is a very different story, snow still lingers around the higher regions whilst the ice is seen in many villages and the country side which has caused some roads to close whilst local assisters rid of the ice but this has not stopped people from preparing for the 'Week of the Dragon'.

J: we're expecting the slow incline to warmer weather over the entire country especially with the final traces of the storm now disapparating, in places such as Aurum the temperature is going to be a cool 4 degrees whilst further South in places such as Hān'é city it will mostly be 7 degrees. This is meant to continue through out the week with some showers on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon but an overall chilly start. Rajev.

R: After the break we shall continue with the topics, so stay tuned.

News of the Empire

R: Welcome to 'News of the Empire', Happy Week of the Dragon, i'm Rajev and here is the news.

R: The Week of the Dragon has arrived for another year, all of today shops have closed early with their owners joining in the enormous festivals through out the nation. People having been gifting strangers and friends with the traditional red and gold cards and joining their relatives at their homes or in the cities to snuggle up, watch the movie marathons and see the fireworks be launched. The Emperor's annual broadcast hit a record high as many people have recently expressed their undying loyalty and love for the Emperor as well as, for the first time in almost 3 decades, an emperor of Indo-Stan joining the public celebration in Aurum including lighting the first firework of the afternoon.

R: The week also means the start of the Dragon holiday with children rejoicing their break from school, just like we all did when we were young *laughs a little*, the students attended the last pledge of allegiance for the week at their schools and many prepare for the day of youth and mischief where, as every year, shall sing patriotic songs in the capital's center before playing pranks on one another and reviving gifts from their elders. 

We would usually have the weather forecast be hosted by Jingem but sue to it being the holidays now, he is with his family. we will have it quickly ran down by Nina before we play the song of the dragon and say farewell for the week. Nina.

N: Well as Rajev said I will quickly go through the forecast.

N: Well not much has changed since the last forecast, we are still expecting a slight chilly breeze, clear skies and the last bits of the storm to disappear but one thing that has changed is there is now a higher chance of that chilly breeze going sooner than expected. Other than that, have a good day and an amazing 'Week of the Dragon'. Rajev.

R: That is all from us, have an amazing 'Week of the Dragon'.

*Song of the Dragon begins to play*

OOC. Noted and thank you for the corrections.

  • Jingem as stated was with his family. I should have made that clearer. My apologies.
  • The Emperor does have a name which I am to reveal in the next post (non-news RP) and I can add more depth if it would help.

*Jingem is seen standing by the weather forecast screen moving his microphone back into position on his shirt whilst Rajev is reading the shows' approval rating* 

*The Director (Li) comes onto stage*

Li: listen guys, i have some news. I need to inform you that a small insurgance in Hān'é city broke out last night in the same region where Nina is

*The visual expression of worry appears of Jingem's and Rajev face*

J: Is she safe? 

Li: I assure you she is ok but she sent a message to say she wants to do a live report from the city covering the Hān'é issue before the weather forecast

R: Of course, if she's there and is willing to do it, i'm fine with it. How about you Jingem?

J: I'm worried for her but i know she will be fine, lets do this.

Li: Alrighty boys, we start in 20 seconds so ready positions

*The Director leaves the stage and Rajev and Jingem prepare themselves. As Li starts counting down the News Introduction plays*

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

R: Welcome to the News of the Empire, i'm Rajev

J:I'm Jingem

R: And here is the news.

R: The week of the Dragon festivals were a huge sucess for the tourism industry as the Dàahivén Emperor personally funded some of the celebrations for it being the 10th Week of the Dragon festival with him as Emperor. In age old tradition he was seen at 'The First Dragon Emperor' tomb to pay his respects and then seen giving money to the public in the traditional red and gold envelops and having tea with a few as well. Some public members were spotted helping tourists with language and inviting them into dancing and fireworks.

R: In other news, the Prime Minister Jin Tzu is under criticism today as 3 of his 10 personally chosen officers were filed for bribery corruption. Mr Tzu was quick to denounce them as officers but investigations has shown that the officers under fire had been apart of different former separatists movements, one still having connections to Aaryarlìvatra, the now small but still significant Purist cult. There has been public protests against the Prime Minister which Mr Tzu stated to had taken to heart, in an interview with him he exclaimed "I hear the people and i know what i did was wrong. I can not apologies enough for this mistake, this will not be how the rest of my time in office will be like and i assure you i will make it up to the Empire and Emperor".

R: Before we have the weather today we have a special report from Nina in Hān'é City. Nina.

*Camera cuts to Nina in Hān'é City. There is some rubble behind her and the sound of gun shot, chants and screams can be heard*

N: Thank you Rajev. As you can see behind me an insurgence has broken out in the center of the city. This is the first case of an insurgence in the last 100 years, the police believe the- *An explosion of a flash grenade is heard, cutting Nina off* identified the causing group of the insurgence however, it came to a shock to the law when they found the group is a combined force of the Narku Cultist and the Aaryarlìvatra Cult.

N: So far casualties have been calculated to number around 6 Civilians, 1 Dūr iĺim troop, 2 Police troops and 8 Cultists within the 4 hours of this insurgence beginning and this problem has in fact caused the Civil Defense League to gather alongside the Emperor himself. We can see the damage this has caused and the City Center as well as a few neighboring regions of the city have either been evacuated or put into lock-down.

*Camera swiftly and shakily moves over to the Cultist position where a black bannered Narku flag with the golden Aaryarlìvatra logo on it waving from a window top* 

*A Cultist is seen chanting 'Death to the Emperor' before throwing a M67 hand grenade toward the police's position damaging a building's foundation*

N: *In a worried voice* By the heavens. *she looks back to the Camera* We as people must show our strength to resist this unholy group, by the blessings of the dragon we shall live eternal.

*A Dūr iĺim soldier rushes over to Nina and the crew telling them to follow him to safety immediately* 

*The camera cuts back to Rajev who's face shows worry and concern*

R: Uh,  righ-t right sorry. Nina and all crew members, we at the news team wish the Heavens and Gods be on your side in getting to safty, we hope those in Hān'é City find the safty they need, those lost to these Terrorists we pray you find peace and we give our heartfelt enbracement to the families and people affected. 

*Rajev takes a sip of his water and clears his throat*

R: Now with the sport and weather Jingem.

J: Yesterday the Aurmi Lions cricket team went toe to toe against the Hasheiv Hornets in the second round of the national games. The Lions played valiantly getting 186/5 (25), it was ever so close but the Hornets took the win with 203/7 (25). 

J: In hockey, the Dàha Dhole made another victory in the regional matches meaning they will move to the next round, their manager has proven to be very impressive for his 2nd year with the team and many celebrations of his skills followed the victory.

J: In terms of weather, *the forecast map shows behind him on the screen* the winter is still lingering on in most of the country. The recent storm has taken us all by surprise and thrown harsh rainstorms and winds at us. In the north, winds are expected to pick up to 70mph followed by heavy showers and in some areas ice and or snow whilst in the South there will be Winds and mostly thunder storms. Temperatures are expected to reach 7 degrees in some areas but in most places it will be around 3 or 4. 

J: That's all from me, join me next week for my special on climate change in Indo-Stan, I hope Nina and all others in Hān'é City are safe or find safety and i wish you the best of luck. Rajev

R: That's also all from me, so from myself and the crew here at the news, best wishes.

                  - Lotus Sun Network- 

 INSURGENCE CRUSHED BY THE TROOPS IN GREEN. 

7 days of insurgence has finally been quelled in Hān'é City by the civil military police force the 'Dūr iĺim' troops. 'The troops in green' as they are nicknamed launched a series of counter attacks upon the Cultist positions taking them by storm, executing or arresting all of them. It is believed there was a total of 26 Cultists by time the troops seized them meaning there would of been 34 when the insurgence  began a week ago today but it was due to the hard effort of our law enforcement that the Dūr iĺim were able to finish the remaining enemies. Those who have been captured are to appear in court tomorrow whilst the dead Cultists are to be incinerated. 

Those Indirìanis who were lost to the terrorists are to receive the proper services depending on their religion, their families shall receive 'Pasts income' and the enforcement troops are to receive a state service. A moment of silence will follow after for all the Indirìanis lost. The Emperor has stated "Those lost to violence and evil are to never be forgotten, soldier or not all innocents are guardians to the light". 

 In other news the imperial tomb of the Marahatué, on the outskirts of Hasheiv, is now currently going under refurbishment after cracks were spotted on the south side of the foundation and chippings in one of the pillars. The government has asked for people to donate and even help in the saving of a iconic historical building saying it will show national unity. The refurbishment has no confirmed end date but is expected to take up to 2 years to fully finish. Prime Minister Jin Tzu has personally put funding into the effort for his love of the ancient world.

On the topic of Mr Tzu, the calls for election have finally died down after Mr Tzu's apology in our interview, his efforts afterwards had proven to be enough for the people to trust him again as well as the Emperor who was seen talking to him casually along with a bunch of high ranking state officials.

                                                                                            NEWS OF THE EMPIRE

                                                                                              - Lotus Sun Network- 

                                                                                              Lock down drill

Every 5 years in Indostan the 'Disaster drill' takes place. As all citizens know this 2 month long period is one of challenge and strength but this year, thanks to the '2nd Health Reform Act', it may be easier for the people. The government implemented the 1st HRA on the 12th of May 2009 only 2 months after the Dàahivén Emperor came to power, it's passing was to begin the process of obtaining access to the latest medical advancements from across the globe as well as focusing more effort into our nation's own medical practices. To no surprise after a slow first year, the second year saw a firm incline in medical knowledge from most university medical students and already practicing professionals. The nation's medical efforts and overall health have increased immensely as after now 10 years, 2 HRAs and 2 Lock down drills, the public's knowledge of staying healthy and alive has without question improved more than it had under the former Raixī Emperor. 

Now we are about to enter the first day of the 'Disaster drill' under the 2nd HRA which will see small changes to how citizens will go about in this month. 

Unlike the 1st lock down which had large negative effects upon the nation's economy, this one will try and have a reasonable effect upon it, it will still negatively effect the economy but the government made it clear that this, although being a drill, will prepare the country for disasters such as pandemics and ensure the country lives on. 

The first week is the hardest week and will see the rules being implemented. If a confirmed case pops up in Indostan, the family and friends of the infected, who have been in contact within the prior 2 weeks, and the infected as well are to go into quarantine immediately. From there the local clinic and or hospital shall go to the homes of the quarantined, wearing protective clothing, and access the situation through tests and necessary other procedures. 

If more cases are to occur within this first week (as in over 50) the nation shall begin entering the period of lock down. 

All those infected are expected to remain indoors for 2 weeks to keep the illness contained. Medical staff shall attend to them when possible and transport them to specialized hospitals, built to deal with pandemics. Here the infected shall be helped and (if consent is given) studied to find a cure for the illness.

The second week shall see shops set out levels of rations and set times for certain people. i.e. Key workers shall have the first opening time in obtaining their necessary produces for their work day as well as living days. After key workers, the elderly and other vulnerable people have the second opening time, followed by the remaining populous. This method continues for the rest of the 2months . 

In the rest of society, under the second week, gathering of more than 5 people are to be banned in public and it is to be advised that unless they are direct family living under the same roof, private meetings of over 5 are not to occur. This rule does vary for restaurants and other such places which are to have number caps on people allowed in. Restaurants are to decrease the number of people allowed in by a effective amount and ensure there is a safe 1.2 meters (4ft) between each separate group's tables. All public areas are to also encourage use of health gloves, hand sanitizer and health masks through out the pandemic. 

These procedures are to continue for the rest of the lock down.

From around half way of the second week, all rules will be re-enforced. Those who fail to comply with basic instructions of the lock down will be fined and arrested. Once they are arrested they will be put into quarantine prisons which have no difference from normal prisons in Indostan, they are just there in case the arrested are infected.

The third week sees the final measure needed where the rest of society, unless they are key workers and small market workers, go into self isolation for the remainder of the 2 months.

The final month will see a full lockdown where no one is allowed to leave houses unless it is absolutetly needed. Key workers of health, police, fire and others are excused of this. All those who fail will be arrested and fined 3000 Yikas.

If necessary, the lock down continues for an extra 2 weeks where the within the forth week the self isolation continues and finally the fifth week sees the self isolation end and the rules of the 2nd week return.

                                                                                              - Lotus Sun Network- 

                                                                        Revive and Reform Indostan's heart                              - Jingem Gheo

 


Yesterday Prime Minister Jin Tzu and his cabinet met with the Emperor and his royal court at Ishvara palace to discuss and pass a series of reforms and revisions that the National Congress of Indostan have created. These reforms and revisions are to be the first of many to be enacted as part of 'Project Ātman', a project that the National Congress, as well as the Emperor, have begun with the goal of making Indostan into Indirìhya again. 

For those who do not understand, Indostan was the name that the Sultanate of the North gave to the land after seeing that civilization here had stemmed from the river Indrì which ran through the sultanate's territory. The name was taken by the Yeller Empire and placed on the maps, spreading far and wide the name of the land that the people never agreed on. The Sultanate would collapse after the people grew in anger at the unfair treatment of the non-Muslims but the name 'Indostan' remained. Now that will change, once the project officially begins the name Indirìhya will replace Indostan on every document in the nation and Indostan only being referred to in a historical sense.

The second step of the project will be to revive the nation's religious roots. The government will be funding the construction of religious and philosophical buildings and restoring damaged ones as long as they are from the following faiths/ways of life: Svānism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Shenxianjiao, Taoism and Rishyasism. The Government has stated that they have nothing against Islam and other faiths as many of the royal family and Congress members are Muslim or other faiths themselves, they just feel as though they need to focus on the nation's faiths Pre-Sultanate period due to the Dàahivén Emperor's grandfather and great grandfather focusing on Islam as the nation's major religion. The Government has already decided which structures to starts with restoring, one being the Tawang Monastery which although not having huge amounts of damage, still needs to be rebuilt in some areas according to the government.

The other structure is one that was destroyed by invaders hundreds of years ago, Ram Mandir. This legendary temple will be reconstructed according to the descriptions of when it still stood and will take some 5 years to complete.

spacer.png

- A CGI of what Ram Mandir most likely looked like when it still stood.

Whilst these buildings are being restored or constructed, the education system at schools will be slightly changed. Traditionally, Schools teach children the official language of Indrìhēn as well as the province language in which they are in. However, this will begin to change with the project's enactment. Primary schools will keep the same structure but once children enter secondary school, the province language will be dropped as a mandatory subject and be made part of the optional languages. Just like before, students are required are to chose at least 1 extra language to study, which in term allows them to continue studying their province language if they so desire but, schools will encourage them to study a new language which will help them in later life regardless of if they go abroad or not. To add to this, 5 new languages will be added to the optional choices at secondary school, these being: Sanskrit, Devanagari, Hindustani, Traditional Tamil and Tibbatee. The idea of these being added is to simply educate children about the roots of most languages spoken in Indirìhya. 

Furthermore, schools will have dedicated times a year where the children are taught to be open-minded, accepting, honourable and caring. In these so-called "bright days" they will also cover philosophy from around the world and see how it can help them become better people and make our nation better.

 

Another part of the project is to streamline the economy and make sure there is no money being spent in unnecessary areas. After a large investigation took place within the last 6 years it was found that the government was spending money on issues which could be solved by the people and the market. A new law will be passed that states that if a person is financially able to, they will be required to donate 2.5% of their accumulated wealth a year to charity and a smaller 1% which will be split between international aid and other areas which can help decrease the government's spending and involvement in certain aspects of life. To add to the set of new economic laws, gambling will be made illegal and enforced within the next 3 years as it is considered immoral by the government to waste money when you could use it instead to better the state and yourself. Automobiles will also see restrictions on where they can go to help with CO2 emissions, certain parts of cities will go under construction to replace roads with walk paths, bicycle lanes, tram lines and set rickshaw lanes. This part of the project will be very expensive and long, the government and Emperor have asked that the willing people be ready to donate to help better the cities and continue making our nation great. 

That is not all that the project will involve itself in. Part of the project's goal will be to place some laws on social order which will help keep a civilized society. Although children and adults are reminded in their respected learning/workspaces that you should not sexualize the other gender and instead be more accepting, laws will be placed on how a person can dress whilst in public. Many experts have pointed out that puberty can cause both males and females to sexualize another even if they don't intend to, so people will not be allowed to wear over-prerogative clothing whilst in public under what will be called "The Common Decency Act". According to the same sector of this project, smoking will also be made illegal in all type 1 locations, schools will teach children about the dangers of smoking, addicts will be encouraged to join the many institutes to help them come off it and the age in which you can buy and smoke will be increased to 21 which will also be enforced where possible.

There will be more to this project but as of now this is all we know will happen, the project is yet to start and is still open for the people's input so we can all help make our motherland proud. We here at the Lotus Sun Network are eager for this project to start as it will have a volunteer side where people can be directly involved in the construction site of the projects. 

We hope you are a good time wherever you are reading this and we thank you for your time.

Jai Indirìhya.

      The Emperor Invites you
      Greetings all of Eurth. Every man, women, child and pet that lives under the eternal heaven's light. 
      March 10th marks the 520th anniversary of the The Dàahivén Emperor's ancestors claiming the 'Mandate of Heaven' and restoring peace to Indostan's glorious lands. This event falls into the same day as the festival of colour in the nation so of course, this calls for a celebration and as such the Emperor along with 100 professional celebration planners have organised a most amazing gathering for you all to attend.
      This event is completely free as the government of Indostan and Royal family wish to show their warmest of welcomes and open the country to the world's splendid people to see life in our most beautiful country. Those who attend shall experience both traditional and modern ways of celebration in Indostan, hear the music of the people, enjoy the food of the land, see the traditional clothing of the country, watch live sport matches and dance (optional) alongside Indostan's diplomats, public, soldiers, governmental bodies and even the Royal family themselves. There is much more but it would be ridiculous to tell you when you can experience it instead!
       - Festival of colour 
      Worry not about security, Indostan's police force and special Dūr iĺim troops shall stand guard at all times to protect the peace. 
      All you need to do is arrive at Aurum Grand City Center on March 10th and enjoy the week long festival (you may leave anytime). 

      We look forward to see all those who show.
      - Anai Achliu (Emperor's head of festivals)

      This is information that the Indostan Government do not want being seen. They deny this ever happened and there is very little evidence left to support that it did. Captain Arjun vanished from the forces a week after the events before re-appearing 8 years later as a crazed Aaryarlivatraguo terrorist who blew himself up in the Northern Provinces. Some information from his diary entry on this day has been erased or lost in the transference to our base which we know to have been caused by some double agents and also the weather. What we have saved is on this document, typed up by someone who is most definitely dead from the hands of the regime, all we can hope now is that reforms are made or the Emperor is assassinated.

      You'll probably never see my name or hear of me because by the time this goes public, I'll be dead as well and my name erased from existence by the order to protect my family.

      - [REDACTED]



      23/05/97

      [REDACTED]

      In my 25 years of serving on the Indostan Police Force Hasheiv Regiment, I never experienced what I had today.

      I woke up thinking it would be an average day. Stop some kids from littering, give directions to some people, help in the arrest of a drunken tourist who got their hands on some Libiza Absinthe and then go home. But the day was far from that. I was on patrol in sector 2 of the city keeping an eye on a group of six people who were wearing masks and bandannas, they weren't doing anything that broke the law but they looked extremely suspicious just standing on the corner of the street. Before I clocked it, there were more of them walking around. Some with complete body coverage, others completely naked and then it started. 

      I couldn't see who but one of the group members started throwing rocks at us, the rest began chanting [DELETED]. We took cover behind our vehicles, and I used our megaphone to demand they cease their actions and go back to their day whilst my colleague radioed for riot control. Whilst we waited for riot control to arrive, we were forced to use our tasers and pepper spray on some of the hooligans who were throwing rocks and trying to get close enough to us to fight us in hand to hand combat. Then it went from bad to worse. One of the pr*cks threw a Molotov at one of the officer's cars creating a fireball, blasting some of the rioters and officers back. I'm cursed to say that one of my closet friends, Officer [LOST], [LOST] in the blast. Disgusting b*stards took my friend's life. 

      Riot control arrived and things only escalated, buffoons went from throwing rocks to damaging, destroying and injuring. Riot control had no mercy. They opened fire with their airsoft guns and began beating some of the criminals down to the ground with their batons and staffs. Many were [DELETED] in the long hours that followed, mostly from [LOST]. 

      Come the time of 22:37 the streets were engulfed in flames, covered in [DELETED], [DELETED] and rubble. I couldn't count how many officers were [DELETED] both in riot control and on our regular forces. The screams, explosions and chanting will haunt me forever. It was strange, even though they took my friend, I felt [DELETED] for them. I actually agreed that reforms were needed, but I didn't want the Emperor's death. That's what these criminals wanted. Revolution. 

      24/05/97

      The events ended around 2:18 am when the riot control dragged the remaining hooligans hiding among the rubble and debris out into the streets and [DELETED]. After it all, the Sargent of the riot control turned to us and said we should return back to HQ and rest there until further notice, he congratulated us on helping put down heretics before rushing off to probably give a report to the Congress. 

      By the time we returned to HQ the remaining officers broke down, none of us could even fathom what had happened to us.

      The rest was lost in the transference to us. We may never know who Captain Arjun's friend was or what happened to Arjun during his 8 years of disappearance for him to become an insane terrorist, but we know his existence and this diary entry will help us in later progress.

      Broadcasts from the Crescent
      Broadcasts from the Crescent is the newspaper thread for the Dominions of Metztlitlaca and will be split mainly into 3 newspapers. The first newspaper and will be the most commonly used is the Capital Paper. Founded in 1843 by the Archpriest at the time, the Capital Paper is a nationally run corporation managed directly by the Teopac of Finance and the Teopac of Culture and Religious Life. When the Unified Republic of Palu first came to power after colonialism, the Capital Paper was renamed to the Palu Papers and then used to propagate propaganda across the nation. The Limonaian Republic after used the Palu Paper under the same name as their own propaganda company. The Kingdoms of Metztlica and Acolica attempted to shut down the Palu Papers due to it's controversial history, but was eventually allowed to continue to exist as long as they returned to their initial branding of the Capital Paper and remained a nationalised company. Although the Capital Paper declares itself to be politically and culturally neutral it's perspective on stories are often bias towards the government and the economy. The Capital Paper is also one of the few Newspaper companies which repeatedly addresses global issues as well as major headlines from other nations, giving it some rather powerful political influence over the public.

      The second newspaper is the Truths of Metztli, a more culturally right-wing newspaper that primarily sells in the Azlo and Faloki communities with a strong bias towards LAANN and Metztli Nationalist and against Il Domineo and the greater wurld community. Although Truths of Metztli has the economic capabilities to go out to other nations and report on major headlines, besides LAANN they rarely talk about the wurld outside of Metztlitlaca. Despite their name, take what they say with a grain of salt. The Truths of Metztli is relatively new, only beginning to print in 1999 but has soared in popularity within the Faloki and Azlo due to it's anti-oppressor attitude and anti-globalist ideology (not counting LAANN, of course). Several times in the 2000s and 2010s the Teopac of Culture and Religious Life took the Truths of Metztli to court over perceived hate speeches. In the end the Truths of Metztli prevailed as they never explicitly broke any laws pertaining towards hate speech.

      Lastly is the Vocal Voice, a culturally and economically left-wing company that often works alongside the Teopac of Finance. Founded in 1948 the Vocal Voice was initially the national newspaper of the South Palu Confederation but was shut down once the Limonaian Republic annexed the nation. In 1988 the Vocal Voice was re-established with the help of the Teopac of Finance 40 years after it's initial closure. The Vocal Voice is most prominent in the Yatotlan, Tapelt, Pekatekan, and Xinmetztli Dominions due to leaning more towards left-liberal then the rest of the nation. Nowadays however, the Vocal Voice is known for it's more scandalous and less-than-mature writing compared to the more passionately written Truths of Metztli or logically typed Capital Paper. The Vocal Voice is far more secular then it's two competitors, and rarely reports on religion/faith-based news stories unless said news story impacts the whole nation greatly. The Vocal Voice may not fact check as much as the Capital Paper, and so it can come off as just as bias as the Truths of Metztli - albeit in a completely different direction.

      One thing you might notice about all three logos is that none of them possess any text, as iconography is far more important to the Metztlitlacans then text due to the numerous national languages within the country - most of which blend into one another at tribal and ethnic borders - resulting in a bureaucratic nightmare for any company. If text is used, it usually printed in Standardised Naxua, the Yatotlan Dialect of Cristinese, and the Faloki Dialect of Huang all written in the Aroman alphabet along with Standard Anglish and the Salxa Dialect of Salvian in the Acolica Dominion; Tapelt Naxua if in the northern half of the Yatotla Dominion and Tapelt Dominion; and Pekatekan and Anglish in the Pekateka Dominion. Therefore the easiest thing to do is to have a recognisable logo if your company exists beyond your local community.
