EXCITING NEWS IN MONSIERRON: The re-opening of the Economy, the joining of the PCTDF!
Good morning, Pacific!
It is a great pleasure to announce the Grand Re-Opening of the Sierronian Economy! This re-opening is due to the finishing of the governmental organization of Monsierron: No longer the Empire, but the Imperial Polis Union! I did a factbook to anyone interested in knowing more about my map, locations and in general the new government:
This map was made by the Cartography Department of the University of Santafé. It was made with diplomatic, educational and strategic purposes. It shows in green the areas that the Imperial Polis Union has sovereignty over, the blue represents the oceanic water that Monsierron has access to, and in grey the areas that belong to another nation.
The map shows a series of different tones of green in the terrestrial areas. These represent altitude. The darker the green color, the higher it goes. Each tone represents One Thousand meters upward. The Highest point is the Eastern Mountain of the Mt. Dos Puntas, it measures 10, 890 meters over the sea level. No one has gotten to it's peak yet, nor to the Western Mountain which measures 10,460 meters.
Just as the Terrestrial Operations show, the map has a gradient of blues to represent the depth of the sea. Each change of color represents 140 meters downwards.
Polis Type Explanation
As seen in the Map of Monsierron, there are 6 different types of Polis in the Imperial Polis Union. Each and everyone of them has a special function that help for the development of the Nation. There are 26 Polis, the 26 represent the 26 original groups that were unified under Sancho Guerrot and Mama Pipona, and are located in those exact spots where the tribes lived. These are as follows:
Capital Polis: The Capital of Monsierron is Santafé, the city of Satchmo. The Emperor lives in Santafé, in the 'Gran Casa del Satchmo en el Montte'. In Santafé is where everything regarding the administration of resources takes place, it is also the headquarters of The SLT and the Grand Libraries of the Imperial Polis Union, including the 'Gran Libraria Escencial del Satchmo'. The Capital has the function of all the other Polis.
Military Polis: Military Polis are the central powers of all Military management in Monsierron. There lay the military bases, military academies, and the companies in charge of the buying or selling of military equipment. There are 8 Military Polis in Monsierron, mainly located in the Southern Border with Jokesters, as it is regarded as a generally hostile territory.
Aerial Polis: As part of the modernization program of Monsierron, led by Emperor Pétero I, a new series of aerial transporting machinery was bought. These Polis are the center of these machines. These Polis are also where the International Airports are located. There are 4 Aerial Polis in Monsierron, these are located throughout the whole country to make it easier to travel internationally.
Train Polis: Also as part of the modernization program of Monsierron, there's the land transportation. Trains are regarded as one of the most important methods of transport of Monsierron, as the terrain is mainly made up of mountains and there are not many rivers. For these reasons, the train became the main transportation method in Monsierron. The Train Polis work as the central train stations and the administrative centers of this terrestrial transportation. There are 3 Train Polis in Monsierron.
Port Polis: One of the main parts of the modernization program of Monsierron, the marine routes. Monsierron, despite not having a lot of rivers to establish a good marine transportation system and instead relying on trains, is very reliant on ports, as they are the main focus of economic growth and trade in Monsierron. Port Polis are the ones in charge of receiving all things coming from the sea, checking them for any illegal substances or materials, and sending theme elsewhere in Monsierron via any other system or Polis. There are 7 Port Polis located throughout the great Sierronian coastal area, 2 in the Satchmo Sea, 3 in the Mar del Frio, one of them in the Isles Nortes, and other 2 in the East Sea.
Report Polis: Report Polis were the final step to the modernization program of Monsierron. They are the ones in charge of all thing diplomatic. This includes the spreading of news and the diplomatic meetings that could not take place in the Capital Polis. Also, they are in charge of economic development in Monsierron, as they are the Polis in charge of trade management before it arrives to Monsierron. There are 3 Report Polis in Monsierron, spread as best as possible for diplomatic purposes.
Locations in the Map
In the map there are several locations that were named, these are the most iconic or important geographic locations for the Imperial Union. The go as follows:
Isles Norte: The Isles Norte [Is-Less Nor-teh], or Northern Isles, are a group of islands located in the northern sea of Monsierron, on the Mar Norte. There lies one of the 7 Port Polis of Monsierron, they are also the entrance to the Military Polis in charge of the Imperial Navy.
Isles Buca: The Isles Buca [Is-Less Boo-cah], or the 'Mouth' Isles, are a group of islands located in the western side of Monsierron, on the Mar de Satchmo. They are called the 'Mouth' Isles because they're, just as a mere yet inexplicable coincidence, the first thing that travelers get to when exploring the northern sea of Arembia.
Mar Norte: The Mar Norte [Mar Nor-teh], or Northern Sea, is the name that the Sierronian people gave the cold sea area located in the north of Monsierron. It is an important spot, as it is the one that generally receives the military equipment bought from the exterior.
Mar Ester: The Mar Ester [Mar Ess-tear], or Eastern Sea, is the name the people gave to the Stralan Sea that is located in the East of the Mar del Norte. There lies the Port Polis that receives everything coming from the East.
Mar del Frio: The Mar del Frio [Mar dell Free-o], or Sea of the Cold, is the exterior sea located at the north-west of Monsierron. It is regarded as a sea that is as cold as it gets. It is relatively dangerous to go travel this sea alone, but with the right equipment it can be just a trade route more.
Mar de Satchmo: The Mar de Satchmo [Mar de Satch-mo], or Sea of Satchmo, is the name of the sea located at the west of Monsierron. It is called the Sea of Satchmo because, just as explained Isles Buca part, travelers tend to mysteriously arrive there despite routes showing that they should arrive elsewhere, so the Sierronian people decided to say that it was an act of Satchmo, the embodiment of knowledge itself.
Barrier Norte: The Barrier Norte [Barr-ee-er Nor-teh], or Northern Barrier, is a mountain range that covers the northern part of Moniserron. It is called a Barrier as it 'protects' whatever sits behind it. This same explanation is given to the rest of Barriers.
Barrier Woeste: The Barrier Woeste [Barr-ee-er Wo-es-teh], or Western Barrier, is the name of the mountain range that covers the western side of Monsierron, facing the Mar de Satchmo.
Barrier Sur Prima: The Barrier Sur Prima [Barr-ee-er Soor Pree-ma], or First Southern Barrier, is a mountain range located in the south-west of Monsierron. It protects the western entrance to Jokesters.
Barrier Sur Do: The Barrier Sur Do [Barr-ee-er Soor Do], or Second Southern Barrier, is a mountain range located in the south-east of Monsierron. It protects the eastern entrance to Jokesters.
Barrier Ester-Norte: The Barrier Ester-Norte [Barr-ee-er Ess-tear Nor-teh], or Northeastern Barrier, is a mountain range that covers the northern part of the Stralan border of Monsierron.
Barrier Ester-Sur: The Barrier Ester-Norte [Barr-ee-er Ess-tear Soor], or Southeastern Barrier, is a mountain range that covers the southern part of the Stralan border of Monsierron.
Mt. Dos Puntas: Mt. Dos Puntas [Dos Poon-tas], or Two Peak Mountain, is a mountain that divides itself into two other mountains. They ate the highest in Monsierron, and their height is of 10,890 the eastern one and 10,460 the western one.
Mt. Intersect: Mt. Intersect [Inter-sect], or Intersect Mountain, is a mountain located in at the east of the Capital Polis of Santafé. It is called like that because it forms an intersection between 3 mountain ranges.
Mt. Corte a Alto: Mt. Corte a Alto [Core-te A Al-to], or 'Cut to Tall' Mountain, is a mountain located in at the north of the Barrier Sur Prima. It is called like that because it has an unexplained dent in the middle of the mountain, there is a lake, Lagou del Montte, where only certain algae and other bacterial lifeforms are able to live.
Mt. Halkez: Mt. Halkez [Al-ckess], or the Halkez Mountain, is a mountain located at the west of the Capital Polis of Santafé. It is named after Jorge Gilberto Halkez Villalobos, a scientist who discovered a unique type of flower, the Sierronian Flor d'Or, (Flower of Gold) and at the same time being the first man to ever have reached it's peak. It was previously known as the Mt. Woeste, or Western Mountain.
The Imperial Polis Union has been undergoing a series of changes in the past few months, as the full establishment of the 26 Polis has been a relatively hard process for the economy, the government and the people. This series of changes also represent the renaissance of the Sierronian Government as a new democratically-based theological monarchy, a basically new term that has arrived with the new administrative changes. Everything that happens in the empire will first have to pass through the Democriatos (look at the 'Cardinal' section of the Satchmoist Hierarchy). This includes anything the people want. The government is now run by wisest men, for the people. As this truly is the best way of government, according to the Emperor himself. These changes will now be official, as portrayed by the 'Constituto Del Pueblo', or the People's Constitution. The markets shall remain as free as they can. The government will still partake in the economy, though, now as another competitor more in the arm's manufacturing industry and the book making industry. Libraries are now a Sacred Site, as they represent knowledge, the base of Satchmoism. Monopolies are prohibited, as they take away the freedom of the people. Satchmoism is to be respected by all people, no exception. Everyone, regardless of their ethnicity, is treated equally in Monsierron. If any foreigner wants to live in Monsierron, though, they must get accustomed to Sierronian ways.
The Imperial Polis Union
As seen by the aforementioned information, the Sierronian country is an Imperial Polis Union. Power starts with the Emperor, Emperor Ydiomo Parlez. He is the manager of the wealth and resources, as he is considered the wisest man of Monsierron. His power is based on his knowledge of Satchmoism. Satchmoism is, not just a religious believe, but a philosophy of its own. It is based on knowledge of the world, and it is the Emperor who is the wisest and most filled with knowledge in Monsierron. Then, down the power ladder, is the Grand Satchmo Senate. The Senate is made up of the 26 Grand Cardinals, each representing one of the 26 Polis. They are the wisest of their Polis, and thus represent them in the Senate to make decisions and petitions of the people. Right under the Grand Cardinals are the Cardinals. They are diveded in groups of 6, called a 'Democriato', for each Polis. They discuss which petitions made by the people should be taken to the Senate. Then there are the High Priests, who voice the petitions which they believe are the most important for the Cardinals to send to the Senate. This system of power is known as the 'Trez Etapas De Declaraciones Discutadas', or the Three Phases of Discussed Statements. A system designed by Mama Pipona in order to have the Powerful resolve the most important problems.
The Emperor, Representative of Satchmo and the Sierronians
The Emperor, as seen by the explanation of the Imperial Polis Union, has different role than that of a regular Emperor. Truth be told, he is an Emperor because the Sierronian language does not have a word to explain what his function is in other languages. He is a 'Enpirad pro Satchmo', or 'enlightened by knowledge', but seeing how that term in other languages is wordy and kind of unnecessary, it was decided that he would be referred to as 'Emperor'. He is now the ultimate power in Monsierron, as he is the wisest man of all. He manages the resources and the wealth of Monsierron, as well as the every-move of anything that comes in and out of Monsierron. His job is to either accept or decline a set of possible solutions organized by the Senate in order to respond to an international problem or a petition made by the People. Right now, the Emperor is Emperor Ydiomo Parlez, or just Emperor Ydiomo. He is the representative of Monsierron in any international meeting. In his absence, the whole Senate takes the role of Emperor. In that case, a decision is taken when all 26 of them agree to do something, it usually happens within a few tries of discussion, as they all think similarly with the Satchmoist ways of life.
The Grand Satchmoist Senate of the Imperial Polis Union
As explained before, the system of government work by the power of the Emperor and the Grand Satchmoist Senate. The Emperor has already been discussed, so now the Grand Satchmoist Senate will be explaines. The Grand Satchmoist Senate, or just the Senate, is a group of 26 Cardinals that discuss everyday the petitions of the people and the international problems, those that do and do not include Monsierron. They each represent the wisest man of each one of the 26 Polis of Monsierron. They're all masters of the ways of Satchmo. The way they discuss the problems of the people is by each one proposing an idea that they find fitting, and going around each member for them to add or take away something to that idea. Then they will do that as many times as they need to until everyone is satisfied. This method of problem solving is know as the 'Sistema de les Declaraciones Sirculares', or 'System of Circular Statements'. Finally, the way in which petitions are introduced into the actual Senate is via the 'Trez Etapas De Declaraciones Discutadas', which was already explained in the 'The Imperial Polis Union' section of this document.

Basically, my nation is now run by a Senate which has 26 members, one for each of the 26 Polis. These members are Cardinals of Satchmoism, basically my country's Philosophical way/religion. These Cardinals, plus an Emperor (Not monarchical, more of a 'wisest man has power' type of deal. 'Emperor' is just the only term that the Sierronian people found more accurate) are what make up the government. Think of it as a Greece if Socrates' perfect way of government was implemented in a unified Greece City-State Nation. That's kind of my whole inspiration, good old Ancient Greece. (Note: Inspiration, I'm not recreating every part of the Ancient Greece governments, I'm just going for the basic idea.)
Also, on other news, my nation has joined the The Pacifica Commonwealth of Trade-Defense Federation, or PCTDF. This is a crucial part of my economic renaissance. My nation's economy will now not only be based on the selling of cheap arms, but now mainly on the selling of books! Culture is what I'm trying to sell: Knowledge in general. Be it Science books based on Haven and Sanctuary scientists' research, or it could be Botany books based on Katrzynija's wild and diverse nation. I want it to become the 'Library of Alexandria' or the 'Platonic Academy' of Arembia and the RP Universe in general.
Anyways, this is exciting for me because I've been planning this change for a couple of weeks and it is finally complete! All people are welcome to this New Monsierron: The Imperial Polis Union of Monsierron.
So really we should have that land
I meant that we really didn’t occupy too much land actually considering how big Nova America was. Guess I need to “convince” Portuguese and Ancapstands to surrender claims due to doing the equivalent of taking occupied land in HOI4 that gives 0 war score.
I'm going to have to leave the faction since I'm a vassal now
We aren’t trying to occupy you. We just only occupied the lands before that war even started.
yeah and we would like to have them back those are my lands
I need to figure out what other superships would be present. There's quite a few to choose from.
Technically not yours until we give them up
i mean those could be diferent timelines
Just why did you and Ancap invade? We already had that portion occupied
Wut? Thats no problem you know
Music name:2Pac California Love.
It was the same enemy. Also, how did you even invade across the Atlantic with WW1 tech. That was extremely hard even with modern and near future tech which is why we really didn’t go too far into Nova.
not only do you occupy my rightfull lands, but you also occupy those of my liege
Novoblupolia is ranked 24,643rd in the world and 623rd in the Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 12,734.49 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
My question is plausibility. Nova actually could defeat Portuguese and Ancapstand didn’t even mention where he had the troops despite being on a completely different planet.
