The Chinese Reach Out

Autarchy works... just not for long

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, having been relatively dormant until this moment, has made a statement today, highlighting the Imperial Government’s wish for “positive, productive relationships with Huahsia’s fellow nations of the world”.

Stressing that the economy will remain confined to the agricultural industry and the burgeoning manufacturing industry, Huahsia’s ongoing economic boom will fizzle out by as soon as the 1970s, as Huahsia will not be able to avail the massive opportunities foreign firms, and in the future, foreign labour will provide in the increasingly open and interwoven world economy. The many large pools of cheap labour available in the country should provide foreign corporations with low-cost and efficient production stages, not only providing a plethora of employment opportunities to the population but also assisting in the nation’s aspirations for continued industrialisation. Local enterprises would also garner financial support from foreign investors, all being precious income sources the country will find extremely useful while rebuilding the tattered nation.

New Guns

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has also pointed out the benefits the Imperial Armed Forces will reap with increased interaction with the rest of the globe. As Andeia has expressed her wish to cooperate with the Soviet Union in arms procurement, offering her an opportunity to revamp her military, we believe doing the same will provide the IAF with plenty of modernised equipment to replace our current, less competitive older designs.

Brothers Reunited?

In particular, Prime Minister Yang Shaoqi in a recent speech has pointed out Strasserist Russia’s long-standing relationship with the Chinese people, ever since the early days of the Republic of China. He has stated the two seek the same goals - self-determination and national strength, free from the interference of foreign powers, and the Soviet Union has achieved that over the course of merely forty years. He is confident that though China has just been plagued by a 3-decade-long civil war, the Chinese people will be able to do exactly the same and return China to her golden age in the same amount of time. He applauds both the Chinese and the Soviet people for their “unwavering diligence and patriotism”, proclaiming that “victory shall soon be at hand” as Huahsia finally opens her doors to the outside.

[OOC] TL;DR: I want monet, I want tenks. Everyone pls be friend, particularly you Dumbledorius

The White Chorus

On National News today, the White Chorus of the Iron Army will be performing for two months across the Union performing in excellency the best military marches, folk songs and play the most beautiful and epic from across the entire Union, from the past and for the future.

Tickets for international diplomats and foreign Strasserist have been permitted to be sold for the concerts at Moscow, Petersburg, Strassergrad and Tanu Tuva, these having the biggest auditoriums inside their beautiful theaters.

New Guns, Better Guns, Soviet Guns!

An agriculturaland arms deal have been proposed forth to the Andeia and Huahsia by the Soviet Ministry of Export and Trade and The Soviet Ministry of Foreign Affairs and support, this being aproved by The Soviet Ministry of National Economy and the Bank Federation.

This deal would offer some slightly more advanced equipment and blueprints alongside major agricultural products to be sold to the Andeian and Huashian goverments and military respectfully more easier, as well as opening their borders nearly wide open to the Soviet Union and so the soviets will open theirs to them to permit their merchants and our traders to continue on this economical project of ours.

It was stated that this deal was quite negotiable by both goverments with the Soviet Union.

Palace of The Soviets
Due Prime Minister Yang's speech regarding the Soviet Union, the soviet leadership and people have begun to increase their opinion on him and his current goverment with outstanding aproval.

Our friends to the South, allies of the East and one of the most ancient and greatest cultures of human history have humbled us, we declare their leadership honorary soviets in their hearts; for boldness and kindness alongside intelligence and wisdom is something we lack yet we need and that is something they as well as us show through patience and humility.

Like the glorious Andeian people, breaking through chains of social obligations stated upon them by Old Masters and Foolish Men whose greed's mark upon this earth is yet to be healed away. Wise and Honourable are the Andeian people, who against the odds stand up in valour and virtue like us for the sake of all for who we care for the most.

The clear differences between these nations and us lie not in knowledge, technology, or culture, but in their views on life and death as a whole, and if we look in then perhaps we are not as far as we thought we are.

Wounds Healing

Prime Minister Yang has proclaimed that this is a new chapter of Sino-Russian relationships, leaving our historical enmities during the Century of Humiliation behind and welcoming a renewed kinship between the two peoples - something he endorses as “the only right thing to do in this increasingly polarised world”.

In order to facilitate the future transportation between the two countries, Parliament today has passed a bill allocating billions of Imperial Yuan to repairing land transportation infrastructure connecting Huahsia and the Soviet Union. In particular, railways such as the Trans-Mongolian Railway and the Chinese Eastern Railway will be focused upon, as they connect directly to the Trans-Siberian Railway which spans the entirety of the vast Russian nation.

Existing airports in major cities such as the capital city of Beijing, as well as others of the likes of Nanjing, Shanghai, and Chongqing, will also be restored and renewed to modern-day standards to facilitate the increasingly-important air travel, a means we believe will become the dominant means of long-distance travel. New airports are also being planned across the country, but they will be built only in the future as time passes.

Business

The Imperial Government is delighted to hear the positive response from the Soviet Union regarding military procurement.

Though our economy is beginning to evolve, we are at heart still an agricultural nation. In return for the advanced equipment, both military and agricultural, that the Soviet Union offers, we are more than happy to begin exporting our agricultural produce, including grains, vegetables and fruits to your nation.

We are also confident that our growing manufacturing industry will also promise opportunities for future commerce with not just the Soviet Union, but the rest of the globalised world.

Making it Official

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has proposed the preparation of an embassy from the Soviet Union in the heart of Beijing, along with it a telephone hotline that will ease communications with your nation should the need arise. If your nation accepts the offer, we are also looking to establish an embassy within your nation. The same offer will go out to Andeia, a fellow nation in alliance with the Soviet Union.

Together our three people will march into a brighter tomorrow, leaving behind our lamentable past of warfare, indignation and foreign exploitation.

The Iron Republic of Opal!(I'm running on fumes so forgive mistakes or vagueness please)

The Iron Republic of Opal finds itself in its precarious situation after removing itself from isolation. Gakurai Mazak united the nation under the Iron Parties socialist ideologies leaving it partly isolated in the diplomatic stage. Now Gato Ishraki seeks to change the Opallin Republic, less socialism and more government controlled capitalism. He seeks to bring more jobs into the Opallin stage whether it be government or individual corporations.

To solve the issue of jobs Gato seeks investments into building multiple stable bridges between the islands of the nation. He's begun forming an engineering team to create bullet and cargo trains between the islands and the mainland and to create a significant amount of commercial bridges to increase transit between the islands and the mainland. One problem that is facing Opal in this idea is the blank space between the islands. To solve this Gato plans to build inter-mission islands where people can make stops for fuel, food or fun. This plan will also help keep more control over the islands instead of having to dedicate the navy into an emergency police force for the Republic. Now the police can travel in between and the military no longer has to rely on the navy or airforce for menile transport.

On the other hand Gato intends to completely focus the attention on economy. He intends to release the entire nation into a capitalist-like economy, however he is doing this slowly. He's opening up his cities to international trade and is planning on exporting mass amounts of cheap goods from the vast sweatshops that Opal totally doesn't have. The plan to expand its economy however will need inspirational propaganda and the control over all news in the Republic will make that feat easy. Emphasizing national purity, pride in struggle and making it seem the below average is the above average will bring them one-step closer to economoc growth.

Gato does not intend to be a benevolent person compared to his predecessor. He is tightening control over Opal and intends to bring it to a police state. He has completely banned support for democracy and fascism and is silencing critics of the government with lethal force if necessary. He has also begun expanding the military, focusing less on the navy and more on the airforce and army, balancing their budgets. He also feels threatened from the Chinese state just north and plans to militarized the border between them with air bases and frontline forces in case China desires to end the claim on their territories. This new militarization will protect their borders if attempt at diplomacy goes south.

New Friends:

Gato knows that he cannot be alone on the stage and has now taken interest in renewing relations with its neighbors, particularly the Soviet Union(Dumbledorius) and China(Huahsia). Gakurai has already supported the Soviet regime in the past but Gato intends to renew that support to gain merit on the world stage. With China however, he wants to keep them as friends rather than enemies in times of nuclear weapons and knows that the best prevention is diplomacy and negotiation. So therefore, Gato Ishraki extends his hand and has officially requested individual meetings be held between him and China, and him and the Soviet Union.

(Again really sorry if there are any typos or mistakes, I'm tired)

(Again really sorry if there are any typos or mistakes, I'm tired)

The following is a short excerpt from one of PM Yang’s addresses regarding the Iron Republic.

“The Chinese people desire nothing but peace. This idea has its roots planted deep into our philosophy - for thousands and thousands of years. Every day, we strive for the development of our Huahsia, and that of the rest of the world. And every day, we pray the drums of war never sound again over our fields, the very drums that spelled the destruction of our country only thirty years ago.

“We welcome the Iron Republic to our south with open arms. It is at this critical time, as we are toiling, from the ground up, for a stronger, sovereign Asia, free from the shackles of European colonialism, when we must bind together, join arms and march forwards in a grand united front.

Mutual respect, mutual benefit. These are the pedestals of our diplomatic policies. We trust differences between peoples and nations can be resolved with pen and paper, instead of guns and cannons. It is at this moment where I must restate my fervent wish for productive, peaceful relationships with our neighbouring Asian brothers. A meeting between our leaderships will hopefully come soon. Blessed be the peoples of our nations, and the peoples of the world.”
