Jingdao, the benevolent empire
Chibi announces: Today the Chidao Emperor published his ratification of the treaty with the United Batavian States. As a result, the city of Tianhoucheng shall soon revert back to its Batavian name: 's-Koningenwaarde. Zeeburg and the Regent Isles were also transferred. This was an act of benevolence, in return the Jingdaoese Empire only asked that the territories would not be used by the Shirerithian Republic and that the heritage of Queen Sisera was respected. In a years time the Jingdaoese Empire shall retreat its last garrison from Batavian soil, but already our focus is not on Jingdaoese interests, but in helping this Micran phoenix rise from its ashes.

How different does the Shirerithian government act! They have taken the Jingdaoese Batavian treaty as an example, but perverted it. The Shirekeep Republic wishes to appoint Shirerithian judges in Batavia with a vaguely defined jurisdiction, they also refuse to commit to the transfer of Batavian lands to Batavia. "Oh, we'll have a vote on it in a year or so!" they claim. And if they refuse to live under the Shirerithian yoke, they will have to cede Transbatavia!

It is not much different in Floria. Here the Jingdaoese Empire and the Florian Republic are able to negotiate a deal which is beneficial to both nations. the Jingdaoese Empire gained a corridor which connected a province to the mainland. In return Jingdao gave Floria the island group of Nandao. Shireroth then? It bullies Floria, threatening to veto everything it does, from constitutional changes to industrialization. Only because Shireroth can do this according to treaties it forced on the Florians! How childish!

There is only one empire on Micras that has its focus on the common good, and that is the empire that is led by our glorious Heavenly Light!

    Mevwan Calendar

    12 months:


    Months are usually 30 days, except Snowmonth, which is 35 and occasionally 36 when this is called for to make the lunar and solar calendars match up.

    Weeks are five days long and named after colors. The standard set is Whiteday, Redday, Yellowday, Greenday, and Blueday, but various locales and subcultures prefer different colors for all days except the standard Whiteday (the most common alternate set is Whiteday, Grayday, Blackday, Brownday, and Silverday).

    Mevwan uses the same year-numbers that are given in the early Autokrator's Addresses. This indicates that May 10th was year 1. The year that falls on a given date can be calculated here (enter May 9th as the start date or check the 'include end date' tickybox); the date of a given year can be calculated here (enter May 9th as the start date).
