Summer Olympics in the Sunset Sea Islands

The tropical archipelago of the Sunset Sea Islands is the most populous nation of Thalassa. 164 million people call this equatorial country their home. Over the centuries, the nation evolved to have two faces: one urban, and one rural. Whilst the most of the inhabitants live in huge megalopoleis, such as Sunset City (Yūyake-kyū), the vast majority of the nation is sparsely populated and covered in lush, dense rainforests. The brimming biosphere of the Sunset Sea Islands are the home of countless endemic species. During the last seventy-five years, the previously largely homogeneous population experienced a large influx of international immigrants, turning the nation into a cosmopolitan hub for the young and creative.

Sunset City (Yūyake-kyū)

Sunset City is the capital city of the Radiant Republic. There are over twenty-five million people living in the greater Yūyake metropolitan area. The coastal city features a highly streamlined infrastructure, including state-of-the-art means of public transportation. The densely populated jungle of futuristc high-rise buildings harbours tremendous potential for athletic activities of all kinds. Situated both on a river delta and on the coast, optimal conditions exist for sports like kayaking, rowing, tri- and pentathlons, sailing and surfing. Furthermore, preexistent facilities, such as pools and athletic grounds exist in sufficient capacities.

Aside from sports, Sunset City offers far more for international tourists and athletes. Visitors can explore and enjoy the vibrant culture of the Sunset Sea Islands, such as national quisine, art, architecture and history.

Our Vision for 2019

For the past decades, the Sunset Sea Islands have worked hard to interconnect with the wider world. The will to coexist with other nations in peace and the high value of diplomacy in the culture of the Sunset Sea Islands can be felt throughout all layers of society. Olympic games are a shining symbol - one might say a torch - of peace. Games like these show that it is indeed possible for a diverse mix of nations to live together in harmony and that friendly competition is a major factor in preventing armed conflict between nations.

Therefore, peace has a central position in our vision for the Olympic Games of 2019. The games should be a celebration of harmony, coexistence and multiculturalism. We want to bring people from all over the world together. Measures will be taken to encourage enjoying the events, both live and livestreamed, together with other guests from different corners of the world.

To summarise, the Olympic Games in the Sunset Sea Islands should not only encourage friendship between nations, but also between individuals, for there can be no peace between nations, if there is no peace between the people.

A Futuristic Perspective into the 21st Century

Aside from the multi-coloured star of the International Olympic Committee of Eurth, white should be the main colour of the 2019 Olympic Games, as there is no other colour as strongly associated with peace and harmony as white. Elegant, spotless sportswear will allude to the Olympic Games of the ancient era and unite people from every nation under one symbolic cover, no matter what flag will be displayed on their tricot. International flags will be displayed all over the city.

In combination with the futuristic architecture of Sunset City, these games have the potential to become a shining beacon of hope for a future for mankind in which world peace is within reach.

Logistics

As the Sunset Sea Islands are located directly on the equator, temperatures are relatively high all year round. To both not be exposed to the most extreme temperatures and to avoid the monsoon season, the optimal time window for the games would be between March and May.

As previously stated, preexisting infrastructure in Sunset City is able to handle the additional load. Furthermore, modern broadcasting technologies can be made available for foreign news agencies, should they require additional resources. The ever expanding cityscape of Sunset City will be able to accomodate hundreds of thousands of international athletes, reporters and tourists with ease. Furthermore, accomodations would follow the same concept of bringing people from all over the world together.

The Radiant Republic of the Sunset Sea Islands is known throughout the world for it's top notch security concept. The national crime rate is amongst the lowest in the world, however, security measures would be approporately tightened to guarantee the security of all foreign guests.

The Legacy of Yūyake 2019

For the Radiant Republic of the Sunset Sea Islands, Games like these would be a sign that their previous efforts to promote diplomacy and peaceful coexistence worldwide have not been in vain. Inspiring millions of children to pursue a professional athletic career and to venture out into the wider world will boost the morale of the whole nation.

In conclusion, these games would not only carry significance for the SSI, but also for the rest of the world, as they would be proof that humanity can overcome its brutish nature and that it is able to unite in peace and harmony.

We cannot imagine anything that would match the Olympic spirit more.

The Sanctum Imperium Catholicum, Home of the Papacy

The largest nation in Marenesia, the Sanctum Imperium Catholicum, or in short-name Salvia, is home to 23 million people.  Originating from local tribes who formed an imperium over the millennium, Salvia has developed a rich culture entered around the faith of Catholicism and its founder, Jesus Christ.  The population is spread out rather evenly, however are more located in the four larger cities on the coast, preserving much of the natural beauty out west and on inhabitated strips of coast.  With a rich history and unique culture, the nation has become a tourist destination for decades.

St. Paul’s

The third largest city in Salvia, St. Paul’s is located on the small Leolian Island to the south of the mainland.  The city is located on the western coast and extends to the smaller Tiglian Island, which is home to the local professional rugby team’s stadium as well as other athletic facilities.  Densely populated, the city is also home to a cutting-edge transportation system due to government and private funding, with the city being the hub of the Salvian Stock Exchange and the center of the recent national economic boom.

Both islands are fit for the competitions, featuring islands of coasts and many already present athletic facilities that can be used.  Besides the competitions, with the nation already fit for tourists, visitors can experience the Salvian way of life, food, art, and experience the rich history and culture of the island nation.

St. Paul’s Vision

The central focus point of the Olympic Games are those of St. Paul, of which the city bears his name.  The emblem represents the three characteristics that are wished to be imparted on the international audience as well as the athletes that are participating.

The characters it’s of peace, purity, and courage are essential in today’s world.  The white for purity, not just physically but also morally and logically.  Courage, for the leaders and the led, to be able to stand up for others and for oneself.  And the dove, for peace, to illustrate that peace is required and necessary for the best society.

While the athletic games are certainly competitions and feats of impressive value, the main goal of the games is to encourage and promote these three ideals that are sorely absent from our world.

Design and Inspiration For All

The design for this Olympiad should inspire all three values within the athletes and the audience.  As such, much of the graphics are to feature the red and white dove, with athletes wearing their own national uniform with some modifications, chiefly being a large diagonal line separating to sections, one of the national flag and the other of white, accompanied by the emblem of the Olympiad.  The national flag to symbolize our differences and the courage needed to defend oneself while the white and emblem will provide a uniform look, with the white representing both peace and purity.

Logistics and Dates

With Salvia’s location just south of the equator, the tropical climate is best experienced sometime in autumn (March-May) or the winter (June-August).  These seasons avoid the extreme temperatures of the summer but are still warm to enjoy the weather and the games.

The already adept transportation system is capable to accomadte the many tourists that visit, and with private and government investment on the rise, the public infrastructure can easily keep up with the demand.  The benefits of already being a tourist spot don’t stop there, though.  St. Paul’s is also home to many hotels and facilities, athletic and public, that are ready for use and able to accomadate the increase in users during the Olympics.  Foreign news agencies can be provided further resources upon requests in advance.

With an already low crime rate, security for the Olympics would be able to counteract against any threats and will easily ensure the safety of all guests, foreign or domestic.  Security would be provided through a combination of the nation’s own National Guard and private companies.

The Legacy of the Olympiad

The legacy of this Olympiad will span over many people of many generations. For foreign obeservors, it will show them the three characteristics previously described- peace, purity, and courage.  For native Salvians, the impact will be felt even more.  It will signify Salvia’s advancement to the front stage while also providing inspiration to the international audience to show peace, to be pure, and to be courageous.

The Olympiad has a good home in the Sanctum Imperium Catholicum.

MIYAKO 2019 SUMMER OLYMPICS BID

Kipan is a balance of traditional custom and modernity, held together by the dynamic people who inhabit these islands. They have been inhabited for as long as there has been recorded history first under the long reigns of the former Emperors and now, under the Republic. Since the Udo Transformation during the mid-1850s, Kipan has rapidly evolved becoming one of the most populous and technologically innovative in the world. Under the wise guidance of our first President, Kazuo Yamazaki, alongside the Kipanese Olympic Committee and the various chief executives of the Big Ten corporations, we hereby submit Miyako's bid for the upcoming Olympiad for consideration.

Miyako: The Capital

Miyako prior to 1854 was nothing more than a humble fishing community on the bay of the same name. Then under Emperor Udo, he proclaimed it the new capital of the then-Empire, and today, the national capital. It is home to over 12.5 million people. Being the most important urban area in the State means that it has an extensive public transportation system (both run by the State and by a range of private operators backed by the major megacorporations). It is dense, the skyline dominated by the tall apartment and commercial towers. The city itself is broken into 40 Prefectures: Shintoko is the central business district and heart of the Kipanese economy. It is currently going through a 32 billion Ken redevelopment, opening up nearly 6 million square feet of office space and over 57,000 units of housing.

The city hosts a football stadium for the local club which plays in the premier K-1 league as well as two baseball stadiums - one for the Dragons and the other for the Giants. Given its location on the water, it is more than capable to accommodate many of the designated water sports. The Miyako Metropolitan Corporation has designated plentiful land to the west of Shintoko for required venues including the Olympic Stadium, Aquatic Center, Gymnastics Center, and other premier competitive sports. Miyako will utilize many university facilities to minimize the need to overbuild for the games. The MMC, Kipanese State Railways, and relevant Prefectures (in coordination with the State and Olympic Committee) will ensure the facilities are given sufficient transportation.

Vision

Our vision for the games are simple: bring people together in the name of sport, unity, and peace. Kipan has gone through a period of rapid transformation, on a scale unseen since the Udo Period. We want to give the nations of the world an opportunity to see the wonders of Kipan, give them a chance to see how far we've come and begin building long-lasting ties with the global community. We may have a stigma that we are homogenous in culture and not as multicultural as our neighbors to the north in the Sunset Sea but we believe we will prove everyone wrong. Not to mention that we will be able to further convey to the international community that we are peaceful and have no delusions of grandiose imperialism, a mindset we've thrown out since the end of the Thalassan War.

Game Design

Concerning the design of these games, we intend to construct the buildings and provide the general uniform concept with the overarching principles of harmony and balance - two beliefs that stem from our spiritualism from long ago, though practiced still by a small minority today. Our own athletes will be wearing traditional clothing designs of the Mito Period with an ancient Achuran symbol of peace integrated. 

Logistics

As with any major sporting event, flawless operational procedures and logistics are required. For optimal weather, we strongly recommend that the games take place in late June into early July as this segment of the calendar has been very good according to the trends over the last fifteen years.

As discussed previously, Miyako has an extensive public transportation system which carries over 7 million a day. Due to the increased crowds, the State Railways will immediately invest over 2.1 billion Ken into additional services to provide more capacity on the busiest lines and more than 1.5 billion Ken on a new branch line to the Olympic District. Miyako is a major business hub and has many hotels for all income levels but like many cities around the world, has a severe housing shortage. To house the athletes, the new district will have 21,000 units of housing - with easy reach of the stadiums and arenas in the district.

The Metropolitan Corporation has made it very clear that it would not construct any roads specific to Olympic traffic but will work with the traffic division to ensure that the road network can provide adequate accomodate to such movement within the city while not impacting others too much. An international broadcasting center will be temporarily established within the District through prefabrication. Such methods will also be used in the athlete village.

Despite the peaceful transition from Imperial to Republican rule, crime does not simply vanish. It is no secret that Kipan isn't as 'safe' as the Sunset Sea Islands. However, steps are being taken to increase police numbers within the National Police to 100,000 officers ahead of the games. Such numbers would remain constant following the completion of the competition. The District will be provided with utilities as needed from the national grid network. To help with the games, up to 35,000 volunteers will be recruited to participate not just in the Opening and Closing Ceremonies but to provide guidance to attendees and work with relevant work crews in maintaining the grounds and facilities.

The Legacy

For the Kipanese Islands, these games would mark yet another milestone in our transformation and embrace amongst the myriad nation-states of the world. Through harmony and sport, we can all come together to see the best in each and every one of us. The Kipanese people themselves would see this a chance to show the world the power of purity and balance. That peace is more than important than taking up the sword and attacking their neighbor with it. Regarding its impact upon the city, Miyako has always been a vibrant city and these games will further enhance and broaden the cultural influences throughout the city, giving individuals to see other cultures and learn from one another. The built environment will see further and potentially needed mass transport to be constructed and provided as well as aiding in helping the capital's housing crisis.
