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!

    Expatriates and Prel-Stik

    "Have some more fish, Elsio."

    "Er, no thanks, Mom, I don't want to be too weighed down when we get to playing prel-stik later," Elsio demurred. "I've missed playing with all you guys... is the court up the road still open?"

    "Oh, you must miss prel-stik," said her brother. "Don't they play weird foreign sports up there - ball in a basket, that sort of thing?"

    "It's not 'ball in a basket'. But yeah. I can still play prel-stik, though. There's a decent Mevwani population in my part of my town. Some of us got together and refitted a building to suit. It's just informal, unisex, no spectators except for the occasional player's boyfriend or girlfriend, but playing at family reunions is informal too. I was never heading for a pro position."

    "Damn," said Elsio's uncle. "Was going to tell you that if you want to run a restaurant and have a chance to play I could ask my sister if she wants to let you run a franchise..."

    Elsio laughed. "I'm happy with the restaurant I have," she said. "And with the league I have. Go Green Ribbons!"

    "Green Ribbons, seriously?" asked the nearest cousin.

    "I didn't vote for that team name," Elsio admitted. "We had to please a bunch of people including some who aren't exactly happy with being expats - there's this man who moved with his wife and she likes Safiria and he really doesn't - but - well."

    "Do the other teams have names that dumb?" the same cousin inquired.

    "Depends on what you think makes a dumb name. There's, let's see. Sister Nanthi's Nine. Least Cosash. The Squids -"

    Her mother butted in. "Are these all about where they're from - you're on the normal Mainlander team and then there's Islanders and Cosashi and Lake Province people - or -"

    "No, there's two Islanders and a Cosashi on the Green Ribbons," Elsio said. "But I guess the majorities did fall out that way. Except there's one more team, with a mix of players and no regional hint in what they call themselves."

    "What're they called?" asked Elsio's cousin.

    "Just, The Stikkers."

    I hope that if you're asked "How is Prel-Stick played?", the answer won't be "With gusto!"
