Libera Unio (the Free Union) [RG RP]
« on: September 19, 2008, 02:51:08 pm »

There had been harsh times from the members of the Union. What had originally started as a method of an empress to prevent her feats from crumbling, had evolved and grown through the ages. From a loose confederation to harsh communist dictatorships, to liberal fascists to religious zealots, the power this Union could provide was enormous. This is the tale of the ending of the Enlightened Union, the last traditional Union.

Throughout the various forms of the Union, many rulerships had arisen. All had crumbled eventually, due to inner strife. The most recent to fall from power was a military junta known as High Command. They had seized power through a violent coup d'etat, and put down student protests on Vii Deux, the Union capital, when they demanded reforms. The military was mostly under Yunimius command, so the fall of the Yunimius went without bloodshed. King Yunamii of the Yunimius had become a refugee and found refuge on Niho, the capital of the Urshan Province.

High Command soon focussed on bringing the weakened Auyuelcliad Confederacy under its control. Soon after the destruction of a major city, the Confederacy disintegrated and a general named Banaquaq declared High Command rule. The Confederacy had known some internal strife for some years. One of the political leaders, and heir to the dormant throne, Cortan Tesilia II, also fled to Niho, with his generals.

Once the two culturally dominant provinces had been incorporated into this new, unified state, it was possible to annex their former protectorates, the North and South Forthi Republics, which had been driven apart by conflicting ideologies of the former owners, Auyuelcliads and Yunimius. The Northhad been better off because the Yunimius had been more stable prior to relinquishing full control to High Command. This allowed them to seize quite a number of South Forthi worlds.

The Thoons were quickly conquered, with only a small scale battle taking place. The Urshans declared a war upon this new unified Union state, but little battles occurred. The Austians, Arkibals, and Zakraa seceded, but were not declared war upon by High Command, the official reason being they were no use, the actual reason being that High Command coffers were being stressed as it was, and additional fronts wouldn't help their resolve.

A ceasefire was signed with the Urshans after some time, giving birth to what was officially called the Enlightened Republic and Urshan Empire under Single Union, the vast majority of citizens being Yunimius, and Urshans having no say in Union politics. Borders were closed, and agreements were made that all rebels be sent to High Command justice.

After some ten years, High Command tried a new form of governing this new unified Enlightened Republic, and a new Parliament was created, and elections were held. It looked like a democracy, but only a party with junta approval could provide a prime-minister. Castor the Thoon won the first election with his personal party, and proved popular. After Castor's two terms were up, the political climate had changed, and a political stream opposing the junta was seemingly going to win the elections. The junta intervened, and this started a civil uprising.

The Urshans started to openly back resistance movements again, to much anger of High Command. In the Enlightened Republic, a popular movement under Jalene Mart gained a lot of support, and they managed to gain control of the government buildings on Vii Deux, and raised the new flag was raised over Parliament. High Command rule was being overthrown, and the Free Union was declared. The Remnant of High Command retreated.



Within some weeks, a provisional parliament using the unified structure created by High Command had been created, and invitations to expelled members were extended.

Soon, delegates could arrive, and the Free Union's future would be determined.

  The emperor had dispatched Mai-thaen, the head of relations across the empire from his own personal retinue to deal with the negotiations on vii-deux, Mai had been an open opponent to H.C during it's reign and, although he was a high priority target, he still made many public appearances at southern resistance movements and had a massive scar of slightly lighter green and more stretched flesh across the left hand side of his face from a near miss of a H.C assassin amongst the crowds of one of his rallies. He arrived in traditional arkibal noble style, landing gracefully in his sapphire blue ship, Arkibal in design of course know as some of the best contruction this side of the galactic central rim. He dismounted head of a small group of soldiers, carrying ceremonial staff rifles, but still of course charged and ready to fire. Mai himself wore an emerald cape, made of a shimmering material with a similar texture to velvet and the most ornate of the charcterstic eye masks of the Akirbals. He made his way down the central isle towards the government building on vii deux, well aware he was the first delegate to arrive.

The Austian Systems had little choice but to send a Delegate, their planets and army was crumbling, while the population was happy for the freedom they gained after the Theocrats were exiled, they were starving and lived in near ruins. If the Austians wished to get back on their feet, they'd have to re-join the union, at least then they stood chance of getting any trade or protection from pirates. They still held considerable colonies in the Former Pirate owned space, if the Exports out of the union had to coninue, the Austians would have to give permission for ships to pass through thier Colonies.

The Grand General himself went to Vii Deux, assigned with a small bodyguard of his most Super-Elite Marines, all of them covered head-to-toe in Super Suit. The General wore similar uniforms, after the Austians left the union, HC felt that they had betrayed them. The only competant ruler Austa had ever had couldn't fall because of some mad HC Assasian. He had left his advisors in charge, he did not trust them fully, but all of them had served against the Theocrats, one of which took part in the Austa Greater mutiny. The worst they could do is mix up the patrol sceduals.

Hearing that the Arkribal Delegate had arived some time ago, he quickly assemlbed a marching Ceromony, two banners were held up in the formation, the Flag of the Free Union, and one of the Austian Systems.

Heavy Loads:
When the Urshan delegation arrived at Vii for the meeting many dark rumors started to spread. It's leaders and reprsentors once sworn enemies and now great friends with a common goal adviser Yoa and emperor Daniyu were loaded figures in union poltics who were known for better and for worse. Although known for their great deeds on each on their own, although they single handedly leaded the reforms that allowed all the billions of refugees to live a peaceful life in the not-so-urshan empire far from their troubled H.C occupied homes, they were still the ones to negotiate with hated dictatorship of the H.C something the public won't easily forget.

And so as the local crew started to unpack the heavy loads the great Urshan delegation brought, as still the Urshan empire was de-facto the greatest power in the union clusters, two figures found themselves staring from outside their window with many mixed feelings and desperation hoping to continue their struggle for true Independence and the wellbeing of each member of the union.
Amusingly it was Daniyu the now 19 years old Emperor who said to his adviser "It is time to end it all, and let those whose' minds were not corrupted by all these wars, from all races and factions, to form the new world we were all dreaming on for hundreds of years of hatered...".

King Yunamii had been travelling to Vii Deux in a public transport passenger carrier, with his son, the Crown Prince Mare. They had been to Ulis the last couple of months, reasserting their personal estates. They had done little to reestablish the kingdom. They wanted to see if they would even be needed as heads of state, for it depended on what happened at Vii Deux. Mare had grown into a respectable man the last couple of years, and was father to to children.

Yunamii realised how hated the Yunimius had become in some areas, where they had downright replaced the local population.

_____________________________________________

Once they had landed on Vii Deux, they went to what had once been Nihiili Manor in the Unity District. They found that it had been used for strange, classy parties by the generals. Still, it was liveable once power was restored.

The old Council of The Wise had died, to be replaced by their followers.

The Campian Wise, Arkus, had been planning discussing matters with the Solian Wise, Ihatme. She was the first female Eyecon to embrace the Enlightement. Ihatme did not want to form a new alliance. She was cynical after the last union broke down before they could even join. Arkus reassured her that everything was fine, as the collapse of the Enlightened Union was a fluke.

Meanwhile, the Argian Wise, Uthal, was dining with his wife. He was pondering about his duty. Because he, as the Argian Wise, was Leader of Union, he would have to participate with the debate more then the others. He heard the familiar sound of travelling through the worm-hole. They would be there in a few hours.

Hours passed, and the noise had stopped. They had arrived.


*Landing on Vii Deux in 5 minutes*

They arrived. The three Wise gathered their diplomats and started discussing. They had met war with their greatest nemesis the Yraians in the 10 years the Enlightened Union crumbled, and hoped that the new union would help them.

A soft thud was heard as they finally arrived.

Separation Problems
The Forthi race had been divided for a great expanse of time, beginning with the religious extremism takeover and continuing with the breakup into North and South. Even now three different parties were vying for control over the corpse the had once been the Forthi Delegation.

The NFD had claims backed by the now nonexistent HC, Ninel, the leader of a rebel faction, had support from a huge section of the Forthi population, and Centauri had historical claims that stretched far back through time. As a result, all three parties sent representatives to the large upcoming meeting.

Ninel and his group of ambassadors arrived in a smaller ship, donated to him by a wealthy supporter of the cause. They were the first to arrive of the three Forthi parties and they made sure everyone knew of it.

The large group of representatives from Centauri arrived second, landing in magnificent ships and garbed in lavish robes that told of their great economic power. They could very well take over the former Forthi lands and hold them if they deemed it worth the expense.

The last of the Forthi group were representatives from the NFD. They arrived dressed in dark black robes. Their lesser numbers showed that they were truly a lost cause. They were being torn apart from the inside.

Equality among the Enlightened? A dream of the past:
What a pathetic sight it was when the Thoonish delegation landed. What was left of Thoon nationalism was so little they practiclly represented no one, a race that was almost destroyed in a horrible genocide only to lift it's head up high for a few years and then to be raped and crushed again by the secular Yunamiis and the H.C.. Yes Castor was a Thoon as all Thoons proudly say as they state their names, but in truth no Thoon had real power since well... almost ever.
The story of Thoonish nationalism from the beginning was a funny one in a very sad way. Thoons never wanted their own state, it was practiclly forced on them. And then when finally their nation blossomed it was crushed. The horrible fact was never a single Thoonish government never survived more than 15 years...

The Thoon delegation was built mainly out of Thoon officials that held high ranks in the H.C. due to good connections and socialising with the Yunamii aristocracy that they despised so much. These men women were the only "noble" Thoons that could be found. Still the delegation was not leaded by those powerful Thoons, nor by the wealthy Thoon merchants that snack a chair in hoping to get more power when the union will be formed. It was leaded by a small group of true Thoon nationalist, those that escaped to the Urshan Empire before all those horrors began still holding the true values of their scientist ancestors, still believing in true equality and socialisms.

And so amusingly if one wanted to spot the true leaders of the delegation he was not to seek them in the beautiful wexxian-steel based ships that landed first, but it the chipper Urshan models that landed in the poor neighbourhoods nearby.

The Council of The Wise had seen strange creatures on their way. They had seen them before 10 years ago, on the news, but they couldn't remember their name. They had also seen various other vaguely familiar species.

They would discover who they were soon enough.



((When is the actual debate going to start? Once everyone has arrived?))

The Stage
Vii Deux had one been a grand planet, probably one of the greatest known to exist, but that had changed in recent years. The HC caused onslaught had taken many lives and destroyed the morale of the people. The war against the rebellious factions and outside forces had strained the economy. Many were poor and weak.

But through all this the Imperial Stadium had survived. Named after the many different royalty found throughout the Union races, it had been constructed several years after the completion of Vii Deux. Over a billion people had assembled to see the grand opening while several billion more watched it from screens throughout the galaxy.

Throughout its existence it had been used for a variety of things, from huge athletic events, to the gathering of political parties, to the platform of several historic speeches. Now it would serve as the stage on which the many Union races would come together to decide what the next step would be.

The Imperial Stadium sat patiently as it awaited the delegates arrival.

((Haha, you're a lifesaver))

The Wise arrived at the Stage, and took a seat. There were many species that were invited to the debate. Everyone was waiting for the starting speech to begin.

((We are officially seated))
