Supreme Emperor Kim Jong-Un approves Zhen Development plan

Zhen Dynasty wrote:

Board of Works

The Board of Works has unveiled a comprehensive 10-year (2020-2030) framework for the Zhen-sponsored redevelopment of the Korean state:

Projected High Speed Rail (Dalian-Pyongyang)

The Dalian-Pyongyang high-speed rail line (DP-HSR) is a dual-track, electrified, high-speed rail line. It runs from Shenyang to Dandong, where it connects to the Pyongui Line and the Pyongbu Line.

Cost $9 billion USD
Distance 682.3 km
Origin Dalian Railway Station
Destination Pyongyang Station (Korean State Railway)
Stations/Stops 3 (Shenyang, Sinijiu, Pyongyang)
Operational Rolling Stock

    13 HSR rolling stock sets;
    13 CRH380B/BL (8-car)

Electrification 25 kV 50 Hz AC Overhead Line
Max Speed 250 km/h

The Pyongui and Pyongbu Lines require intensive renovations, in order to increase its operating speeds from 100km/h to over 250km/h. Additionally, the Pyongui Line is currently a single-track line - a second track will be laid down to fulfil the dual-track requirements of the DP rail line. The Pyongui and Pyongbu Lines also require upgrades in electrifications, to render it compatible with 25 kV 50 Hz AC Overhead lines.

$300 million USD will be used to renovate 59 of the stations within North Korea's provincial borders. $14.8 million USD will go towards the purchase of 13 sets of 8-car CRH380B/BL rolling stock.

Upon completion (est. date ~3 yrs), trains will run from Dalian to Seoul on 4-hour intervals. A one-way trip from Dalian to Pyongyang will be completed in 2-3 hours.

Industrial Expansion

Under the current redevelopment plans, Zhen companies have pledged to develop the region industrially, by the construction and operation of a variety of heavy and light industrial facilities.

Historical Korean Summit in Paris falls through

After the Supreme Emperor graciously accepted to attend a historical summit between the Koreas, America, & the Confederacy in Paris. The Summit was a complete disaster. While negotiations were being held & a deal was almost reached with the Americans. The lower Koreans released several aggressive statements at the end that illustrated their violent stance on the Korean Peninsula,

"Seoul is fully willing to escalate the situation"

"& as you can see, my Government [South Korea] is in no hurry to please yours [North Korea]"

Lower Korea also demonstrated considerable disrespect to Confederate President Jackson throughout the meeting which further deteriorated relations between the Koreas as Jackson was invited as a personal friend to the Kim Dynasty. All of this culminated in the Supreme Emperor walking out of the meeting to end negotiations. He has stated,

"The Summit was an embarrassment to international politics everywhere. We will need to place serious consideration on the situation in the Korean Peninsula & whether the path to peace is still a viable option as the lower Korean regime appears to be instigating trouble with their belligerent statements"

After the Supreme Emperor's statement was broadcasted to the Korean people. Nearly everyone in Pyongyang came out to support the Supreme Emperor. The Army held a march in the Capital in which they re-affirmed their complete dedication & loyalty to the Kim Dynasty. Chanting,

"For the Supreme Emperor! We will strike down the foreign dogs which bark at the gates of Korea!"

The Imperial Youth Cadets came out in force as well. Mobilizing hundreds of thousands of cadets to march near the Capital waving flags of the Kim Dynasty chanting,

"The Youth will take up the torch of the future & continue to lead the Kim Dynasty into prosperity! We will continue to dedicate our lives & well-being to the prosperity of the Supreme Emperor & Korea! Death to traitors & foreign barbarians!"

The Imperial Peasant Guard also came out to show support,

"The people will rise to lead the Imperial Revolution against the foreign Democratic barbarians at the gates of Korea! We will never surrender to foreign dogs who wish to see Korea become a cesspool of degeneracy! Glory to the Kim Dynasty! Glory to Korea!"

All of this was echoed by the general populace who showed a vigorous display of support for the Supreme Emperor. Many in Pyongyang chanting,

"We will bring Death to the enemies of Korea! Everything for the Supreme Emperor! May he lead us into prosperity against foreigners who would desecrate our people!"

This re-invigorated the Kim Dynasty to show that it will not bow to foreigners. The Kim Dynasty has survived thus far. It will continue to do so. Glory to Korea! Glory to the Supreme Emperor!
