The Confederate government, gaining word of these discussions, was disheartened; arguments broke out between the Ministers about whether or not they should be heading to the Urshan Empire...What if there was an ambush and they were captured, and sold to the High Command? Tussad tried desperatley to restore order, and Tesilia sat in silence.

After a few moments he said, "We shall head to the Empire. We can trust them not to betray us, and hopefully we can lobby them to assist us in gaining Confederate independence." Tussad nodded, and the Ministers subsided. More depressing still, reports were coming in of those resisting Banaquaq, and the brutality with which they were being treated.

Yes, I am aware of the irony.

Games of thrones:
As the negotiations leaked to the Urshan press great political chaos arose. The holy government of course was not willing to give up their holy status and make the Empire secular again as before for this will surely cause their loss of power. The once weaker forces of the exiled Yoa and emperor Daniyu that hid in the new territories (the Reg conquered space) therefore became much more influential preaching for a peaceful solution with the High Command and a secular nation.

In order to suppress this the Rise extremists had no choice and in order to gain the upper hand they had to make an agreement with the rest Enlightened Union soon.

\\ Greetings leaders of the Eastern Enlightened Union. We are extremely happy you are interested in a peaceful allied solution where both our nations could co-exist united under one law.

Still as a holy empire we can’t quite afford ourselves to lose the status of a religious state. We are willing on the other hand to return all the Enlightening orbs back to Urshan territory and cut all the missionary funds in High Command control territories.

We will also greatly fortify our borders and judge to death all those who rebelled against your government.

Will this satisfy you, showing you we respect your ways and ask you to do the same for ours? I believe this could benefit us both greatly. //

An Imperial conflict:
Meanwhile more and more refugees both from the confederacy and other High Command occupied territories started to escape into the Urshan Empire. The holy government had no other choice but to reinforce its borders sometimes even blasting any trespassing rebel ships. Therefore a new frontier opened, the new territories.

Although the area was greatly influenced by the Urshan Rise Church that made great efforts to convert the locals because of the distance from the capitol and the influence of the exiled government and emperor the area became much more rebellious against the holy government and a home to many of those who lost their homes hundreds of light years away.

A new movement was rising, though weak those who still believed in the Enlightened Union the way it was before the new factions gained power, leaded both by exiled aliens and exiled Urshans the new movement called itself: “The provincial liberators”.

High Command had discussed the matter.

// We will agree to your terms, if you drop the moniker Holy. This does not make you lose your religious status. The Enlightening Orbs may remain, if you can assure us they will not harm us in any way.

Another matter is the exiled governments and heads of state that have found their way to you, but are currently mostly on Hatia. That is where they will remain. The UEP has held a vote on the matter, and does not allow them citizenship.

Because you do not wish to be under our control, you also have no seat the the UEP. Realise that whatever is voted on by this parliament which does not even represent the Urshans, does count for the Urshans. //

The shameful pact:

\\ We will agree to your terms friends. We are currently under the hunt of those you call rebellious as well for the greater glory of our Union //

But the Urshan people did not agree. Seeing themselves as victors and sole survivors of the nations after the horrible take-over the Urshans felt like they were treated as defeated and their own government betrayed them for the sake of its own survival. Martial rule increased yet winds of change were blowing.

The side battle between North and South had all but diminshed. The South, having lost their main source of support, had collapsed leaving a scattered North to pick up the pieces. It was only a matter of tiem before the superior HC forces moved in to wipe out both.

// Zakraa, your secession is illegal, as we are officially your successor state. Think before you act. This may lead to open warfare. //

OOC: Great to have you back! ;)

IC: Already High Command was conquering the Forthi worlds, and promising them seats in the UEP if they surrendered. A surprising amount of planets was willing to do so.

OOC: Thanks!

//The Zakraa have never seen backing down to threats as a viable option. It's just not honourable. Therefore, we are at war. To make it official, we will be sending a fleet your way soon.//

Grand Admiral Korkov was inspecting the ships in his shipyard. There were dozens of Battleships and Carriers, along with thousands of Cruisers and Destroyers and Millions of Fighters. He had known since he took up this position 50 years ago that when the Zakraa emerged once more, there would be war. He had prepared the Navy so that if he was right, they were ready. His ships designs had been completely changed from the designs used previously, so that no enemy would have an understanding of what they were facing when the fleet would first be brought to battle. They were fast, and lined with weapons of various types, from improved Implosion Cannons, to weapons that created massive gravity wells inside enemy craft, causing them to collapse. Korkov smiled. He had been waiting to use these for a long time, and the time had finally come.

//The Arkibals will continue to support the rights of nations to suceed from the corrupted and icidious High Command, but we also urge the Zakraa to hold their fleets, war cannot be the sollution to the restoration of a just union, but if the HC was to make the mistake of taking this as a sign of weakness, they would be uterly wrong.//

// As of today, we call our beloved Union under a new name! Henceforth, we are known as the Enlightened Parliament and Urshans under Single Union, or the Enlightened Parliament for short!

All hail the Reformation! //

"With our Union mended, and the excesses disposed, we can continue liberal policies. We declare martial law over in two weeks, and will hold general elections. The Urshans will not join these. Instead, they must hold their own and send the victors to the UEP."

Little did the HC know the effect their request will have. As such declarations and messages between the nations were publicly spread while the Holy Urshan Empire was planning to refuse to an election as officially the Empire is a monarch-less monarchy the pressures of the people became too grand. Rebellions and massive demonstrations filled the Empire with banners high in the air saying “Power to the Urshans!” and “Let the Urshans represent the Urshans!”.

The government had no choice, the race has begun. The temporary leader of the Urshan Empire priestess La Ko’s minion Godota Mako has declared officially “Due to the liberal policy of the Enlightened Parliament elections would be held to choose the representor of the Urshan Empire in the Parliament. This will of course not change any of the inner governmental statuses and ruling party” he added though all knew this will not be so. Too much was at stake, and no party was going to give up. After the official governmental “Holy Urshan Imperial Party” was added to the candidate list all parties feared of joining. Still one party didn’t, and by joining opened a flock of parties enlisting, this was of course the “Provincial Liberators Party”.

(Might open a part story part RP soon about the elections in which diffrent alien factions will also have an effect on the varied population of the Urshan Empire and thier votes)

// Urshans, the results are announced from the Enlightened Republic

21% of citizens voted for the Libertarian Party
13% of citizens voted for the Social-Liberal Party
9% of citizens voted for the REDSTAR-Revival Party
27% of citizens voted for the Castor the Thoon Personal Party
10% of citizens voted for the Dhulami Green Party
20% of citizens abstained. Their seats were equally distributed among the other parties.

The UEP contains 600 seats, and 530 have been filled. The rest is up to you. //
