BOARD OF WORKS
The Board of Works has begun the process of hiring 50,000 local workers in Western afrika. A monthly salary of $50,000 RMB is allocated, plus bonuses for worker productivity or evaluations. Additionally, the Board of Works will subsidise the cost of utilities, food, room and board, provided they do not exceed $354,140 RMB on a monthly basis.
The Board of Punishments is saddened to hear the concern and condemnations put forward by the people of Infiny and Monaco. However, we wish to stand by our principles.
The Ten Abominations were a series of criminal offences which had their roots in Traditional Chinese Law. This refers to the laws used in China, which have undergone continuous development since the 11th century BC. This legal tradition incorporates elements of Legalism and Confucianism, pertaining to social order and governance.
The Traditional Chinese criminal procedure relies a district magistrate conducting a public investigation of a crime, rather than using attorneys to represent prosecution and defense. The magistrate is a person who seeks the truth, not a partisan for either side.
The Legalist ideals of the Law insist that the justice system is reliant on penal law and the imposition of heavy punishments to enforce social order. In such cases, all moral considerations and social standings are excluded from judgement, echoing equality before the law. The punishment of offences should always be clear and intelligible to the ordinary people, and should be properly communicated.
During the Western Han dynasty, tattooing and amputation were abolished as punishments. However, in this day and age, where sedition and subversion is commonly seen everywhere, it is in the Emperor's best interest to ensure that everyone continues to follow the laws as prescribed to them. The law as a whole was intended to function as a guide to model conduct, and not to be questioned.
Those who seek to flaunt the law are to be punished, as should a responsible society do so.
