[Vision Statement] Kingdom of Unuecejo


Recommended Posts

The history of the country now known as the Kingdom of Unuecejo is one that is marked with continuous infighting and rebellion. Until relatively recently in Eurth’s history, the people of its land have been disparate, at odds with one another. It was only less than a century ago that they, and the wurld at large, recognized themselves as a single Unuecejean culture. That unification was due in large part to the royal house of Strigo. Through many decades of politicking and philanthropy, the previous king Josef was able to forge a tentative peace between the many peoples of Unuecejo. Though many of those long-standing cultural divides still exist just beneath the surface today, Josef I was able to create a national identity for his kingdom. A place where no matter how much the people of the country struggled, they knew they could come together and depend upon one another, and upon the wisdom and rulership of their king.

 

However, peace never lasts forever. WIth those cultural divides came disagreements over the vision of the country, how it should be run and what values it should hold dear. As left-leaning policies grew in vogue across much of Eurth, people began to decry the monarchy as outdated. Rebellions sparked, and though each was quelled without much issue, it was clear that popular sentiment in the fledgling nation was turning. And it was not long before a king rose to power that capitulated to their cause. Though he took pains to confide this knowledge to his inner circle, Josef III was sympathetic to the cause of the leftist rebellions. He was a people person, and he genuinely wished to be a magnanimous king. This led him to his life’s work; to continue his grandfather’s legacy in a very different way. To maintain the monarchy that tied Unuecejo’s people together, while initiating a grand reform that would ensure the Unuecejean people a prosperous life.

 

Thus came about Unuecejo as it exists now. Despite numerous opposers, and even more rebellions opposed to the new socialist system, Josef III was able to institute his vision within his lifetime. Unuecejo’s businesses were brought completely under the control of the government, and an elected parliament of Speakers was formed to enact laws that the monarch would then enforce. However, there were still underlying flaws that maintained tension within the country’s borders. Even before the reforms, Unuecejo was not a prosperous nation. Claiming a large territory, no doubt with untapped natural resources, but lacking the means to exploit them. Underlying tension between different cultural groups and political beliefs, including ongoing movements against the current system. A low standard of living among the  populace benefits neither of these, nor do the myriad concerns of any nation, such as foreign powers and those who would see Unuecejo as something to be captured or taken advantage of.

 

Of course, not every problem can be solved in a lifetime. As this chapter of Unuecejo’s history begins, Josef’s son Sixto has begun his ascension to the throne. The problems faced by his father still plague him today. The anti-establishment underground no doubt sees this as the time to strike, and the new king has no more answers now than the old king did. Millions of eyes are on him as his kingdom stands poised between success and collapse.

 

Current goals of the country, as determined by the king and parliament

3. Initiate favorable trade arrangements with foreign nations
