What advisories do your nations give to foreign tourists either in general or from specific nations?

Given my present tense situation with certain neighbors... We advise tourists to avoid border zones and Taiwan

In general, we don't issue advisories other than the really what's common sense

ie don't venture into rough neighborhoods

Taiwanese Tomfoolery
--------------------------------------

After a long wait, last night, our Great Minister Adachihara has issued a response to the disgusting and blatantly lazy attempt at framing Nihon for "rigging the referendum" with the use of staged evidence. This is what he has to say:

"Only a couple days after the Taiwanese referendum ended in victory for the independence movement, the Chinese have decided to outright refuse the right for the Taiwanese to democratically secede, and have instead, as expected, decided to distract us all with a supposed "rigging" of the referendum. This is a classic strategy employed by the rich and powerful. They assume that by causing a distraction, people will simply forget. If they keep people caught up in a web of infighting, such as 'they rigged it!' and 'no they didnt!', people will eventually forget about the referendum. Or at least, enough time will pass for it to end with the elites mustering the power to end it all through propoganda.
However, we the Nihonese, and hopefully the people of Taiwan, who rightfully and democratically chose to secede, will not accept this or let it stand! We must fight back! We must rise up! This horrid behavior is outright evil! To refuse the voice of the people for the sake of power, and greed!
These Chinese "republicans" seem to love to talk about democracy and the "voice of the people," but the moment it no longer favors them, they stand against it. They stand against their ideals, because it no longer benefits them. They let us live in a promise of peace and freedoms so they can profit off this ever so lucrative status quo, but look what happens when the status quo turns against them!
It is time for the Taiwanese people to REALLY decide what they wish to do. Do they wish to stand by and let this happen, or do they wish to take up arms against their so called masters, who shackle them in the chains of "freedom" and "equality."
The Taiwanese people must be their own masters, and to decide their own fate! The Taiwanese people must live as proud Taiwanese! Not proud Chinese!
We, the Nihonese, will not let this stand. Nihon will begin mobilizing their borders in Korea and put their entire army on full military readiness.
Our navy, our army, and our airforce is ready.
We send a message to the Chinese. You either allow the Taiwanese to live peacefully and under their own freedom, or you will face punishment.
As for the Taiwanese, we ask this question:
Will you let this stand? Or will you show your persecutors that you are a free people.
That is all I have to say. Goodnight"

The future of Asia, and possibly the world is yet to be decided. As of right now, Nihon's future is at stake aswell.
Goodnight Nihon.
God bless our great nation, and may prosperity come to us all.

A Royal Marriage
12 years ago, the royal couple that consisted of the youngest of the two major and rival household royal families of the Shepherds and the Sunleviĝos married in an act of true love that captivated the nation as a modern-day Romeo and Juliet. More recently in the past few years, they had been seen with a commoner who had held the hand of the Reĝino and the Reĝo both in the presence of the other and sometimes none at all. It was suspected the marriage was falling apart, and that there might have been cheating within the house. Those rumors were put to bed as yesterday a marriage was forged, bringing Leono Leonakoro into the marriage between the resident power couple.

In a ceremony performed by the former Reĝino Chloe Shepherd of Trankvila and co-head of the Church of Bestodoro, the dominant religion within the country from the time of the revolution which follows the traditions of pack/pride mentality, the three were crowned a "pack/pride" and blessed to marry by the ancestors. Outside the steps of the Palaco de la Luno, the country was formally introduced to Reĝo Leonakoro, along with the new foundation for his bloodline. With him, he brings a child from a previous marriage, who have integrated with the royal children well. It is currently unknown whether the couple will attempt to have kids with the new royal.

Taiwanese Tension
The Toyko Mailman reported on Minister Adachihara's response to the evidence coming to light of rigging. The minister used charged words like "disgusting and blatantly lazy attempt at framing Nihon" and "staged evidence". The statement went on to attack China and called for the Taiwanese to stand up, inciting revolution.

The Taiwanese response was to burn an effigy of Adachihara and the flag of Nihon with shouts of

"Down with Fascism! Down with Crooks! Down with Adachihara!"

They were greeted by RSAL thugs with bats and mace who attempted to shout them down. A street fight broke out until police restored order. More police units have been called up to stop violence from getting out of hand.

In one town outside of Taipei, hooligans threw Molotov Cocktails and bricks at a police precinct while chanting Nihonese anthems.

The legitimacy of the referendum failed to uphold its legitimacy in the Taiwanese High Court. It has been passed to the Judicial Yuan for a final investigation where it will either be shut down or approved.

The suspected team that tampered with the elections includes locals and Nihonese nationals were arraigned in court today. The prosecution is levying a list of federal crimes:

1. Voter Fraud
2. Vote Sabotage
3. Destruction of Federal Property
4. Inciting Violence
5. Inciting Riots
6. Treason
7. Computer Sabotage
8. Threatening Violence

The Prosecution is seeking the maximum sentence of life in prison without parole for both Chinese and Nihonese nationals. The Defense has sought to reduce the sentences to 10 years without parole and permanent deportation of the Nihonese nationals.

Crown Prince François-Ferdinand shot in South Sudan!

It is undoubtable that tensions in the Territory of South Sudan have been close to a breaking point, in the past few decades. The rise of the "South Sudanese Marxist Liberation Army" (SSMLA) and the government's failure in fully rooting out the movement has led to intermittent skirmishes, riots and revolts in Egypt's southernmost region.

On the mids of these tensions, in an attempt to promote peace and on an ill-advised move by his own accord, Crown Prince François-Ferdinand became the first member of the Egyptian Royal Family to set foot in South Sudan. He was shot on his car at about 10 AM, while on his way to Juba Central Square, where he was set to give a speech.

The Crown Prince has been flown back to a hospital in Alexandria, where he is said to be on critical condition. No more information has been released about François-Ferdinand's status as of yet.

"Individualism is a-ok as long as you support El Presidente and aren't a rebel, there's a Voodoo tribe in an old Plantation up on the North of the island that people like to visit for potions so we're pretty chill with that, and frankly we don't have a large enough nation to really gauge something like Social Corporatism and Collectivism, but we do have Peneltimo's own recommended Caba-Kola's. Would you like a fresh ice cold one straight from Peneltimo's mini fridge?"

LOCAL

  • Following a visit of cultural exchange in Cerma, El Presidente strikes deal to open Pizza King in El Torida.
    "What can I say except you're welcome?" joyfully exclaimed El Presidente too the people of Cabiana during the opening ceremony of the first international Pizza King before munching on a slice himself. The reasoning for such an opening? Desire of El Presidente himself, after having done a cultural exchange visit around Cerma, El Presidente had made a stop at a Cerman Midwestern restaurant named 'Pizza King', of which he ordered himself a large pizza, half for himself and the other half for Peneltimo. However after just a few bites El Presidente was overtaken by the fantastic taste of the pizza and within the next few days before returning to Cabiana had struck a deal with the chain himself to bring a location too Cabiana. The location will serve Cabiana unique foods along side the pizzas, as well as Cabiana's own soda brand "Caba-Kola".

Unfortunately despite reporters best efforts more information about the incident was unable to be acquired after Sean's head rotated 380 degrees before exploding via internal combustion of unknown origin.

  • Local Man claims to have found portal to hell in his closet.
    Local Man Cristian Zaragoza was hounded by reporters last Friday after his neighbor exclaimed that the man had "opened a portal too hell in his own home", and when Cabiana investigators went to Zaragoza's house, they themselves were hounded by the strange antics of the man himself. "Honestly I was never told about this when I bought the house..." says homeowner Zaragoza while unexplained banging was heard from within the closet, something of which spooked the reporters on the scene. The closet has now become a main stay of the man's home, and will make it a major point of his Haunted House experience come this October, despite the reporter that entered the closet and never came back out.

1. New centre-right coalition government set to increase defence budget by 7%.

2. Former Prime Minister Grégoire Poitou is under investigation, due to attempted coverup of various accounts of sexual misconduct perpetrated by his brother.

3. MASSIVE furry convention to be held in Alexandria at the end of the year causes nationwide controversy. Five men attempt to corner and beat up man in jackal fursuit as a result, would-be victim turns out to be mixed martial artist and turns the tables on them.

4. National healthcare budget cut by 4%.

5. Article: Will Egypt's new government be able to reinstate capital punishment? "Despite campaign promises, it's highly unlikely," says political analyst.

6. Egyptian National Regeneration Movement (ENRM) gains its first ever seat on the Egyptian parliament. Its leader, a coptic man by the name of Halim Azer, started his political career as a content creator in the internet. His online show, "The Azer Podcast", is known to give platform to a wide range of ideas considered reactionary and extreme-right. The ENRM is condemned by both of Egypt's largest political parties: The Conservative Party and the Social Democratic party.

THE AZER PODCAST

Azer: ...Next up, trouble in Taiwan continues! On a call with me is Dr. Mizushima Hisaki, Taiwanese resident. Go ahead, Dr. Hisaki.

Hisaki: Thank you, thank you Halim! The real situation on the ground is much worse than the mainstream media "news" outlets say it is. Kuomitang officials have been supressing the Pro-Independence movement from the start, and have gone as far as to blatantly deny the result of the referendum. Everyone can see they are lying. Truly, I don't know a single person here who doesn't want independence, and the Kuomitang is getting increasingly desperate, they want those who stand up to their obvious lies to be locked up for life too! Thankfully, the Nihonese Empire is doing all it can to support Taiwan's right for self-determination.

Azer: That is all well and good. But what if the Chinese officials continue to refuse to recognise the results of the referendum?

Hisaki: I'm glad you asked. Nihon is mobilising. It is willing and able to defend Taiwan's right to self-determination.

Azer: Thank you, Dr. Hisaki! Let us hope it doesn't come to that. That the Chinese government sees reason and abides to the democratic principles it claims to uphold.

Hisaki: We don't count on it, Mr. Azer. Unfortunately, the Kuomitang have conned us many times before. But I also hope, for everyone's sake, that this isn't the case again. Dark days might be ahead, indeed.

What advisories do your nations give to foreign tourists either in general or from specific nations?

1) Don't bring your slaves. They will be considered free(wo)men. (Aimed at Ephyra, but at anyone, really. Dates back to the nation's independence)
2) Don't commit crimes, as their status as a foreign tourist is no protection and might even make their sentence harsher.
3) Practice proper etiquette(Such as maintaining eye contact when addressing anyone.). Not doing so would be seen as a sign of disrespect and could lead to consequences such as the potentially face refusal of service.

China is softly collectivist in the sense of Civic Nationalism or Patriotism and family units.

The people of China are all Chinese whether they be Han, Turkic, White, Hakka, Manchu, etc.

Despite this collective identity, the uniqueness of an individual is also important as people are responsible towards their own success as well as to other individuals like family.

Essentially, China is best described as cooperative with aspects of collectivism and individualism.

*The Nihonese agent snaps back at the judge in English*

Nihonese Witness: "YOU SLIMY CHINA MAN! YOU WILL NOT GET ME TO TALK!"

Judge: "Watch yourself, I will hold you in contempt of court. You already have a life sentence being given by the prosecution and 10 years by the defense. Do you wish to dig a deeper hole for yourself?"

*The witness sits down, clearly fuming mad as a second Nihonese witness fills in more details*

The defense team continue to maintain the 10 year sentence as an appropriate punishment and have ordered psychiatric evaluations for the defendants, citing possible brainwashing of the the agents.

Wait.. We are getting word of a standoff in Ulaanbaatar in the State of Mongolia. We will cut to our correspondent on the ground there, Jargaltulgyn Danzan. You're live Jargaltulgyn

Local and federal police have blocked the area off and are advising residents to shelter in place or evacuate. The police have attained arrest warrants for Mao and all in the house, which are all higher ups in RSAL with some suspected foreign operatives.

Weapons have been confirmed to be in the house, mostly high powered rifles and hand grenades. All utilities have been cut to the house and all inside are being asked to surrender to the police. We will continue to report on this developing situation.

We have all your receipts of money wires. Your cell phone was checked and we found enough to put you away forever. Now is your chance to talk to the courts and to the world about what you did and why"

Agent Yokoyama: Yes I was responsible for leading the sabotage mission. Almost everything is in those documents. Why am I speaking? Nihon has abandoned us and left us at your mercy. The reason why we did goes much deeper than what the documents reveal..."

Prosecution: "What would that be?"
