"A man that does not fear God will have his judgement later on in the afterlife. A man that does not fear the people will meet Him himself today."
Guanyu F. Abramovich Jr., better known by his revolutionary Pen-Name "Comrade Abra", is a veteran, author, economist, Chairman of the Asian Communist Party (ACP), and the acting Secretary-General of the Pan-Asiatic States. He rose to the premiership on November 14, 2017; through his anti-corruption and "trickle-down diplomacy" agenda, winning by a close margin. Like many Asian politicians, his claim-to-fame has been his controversial participation in both the Third Pacific War (as a child-soldier) and the bloody 1995 Cultural Revolution, which was reflected in his primary campaign motto: "Safeguarding Democracy".
Frequently described as a populist and a nationalist, Comrade Abra's political success has been sustained on one hand by his progressive economic policy, on the other, his agressive foregin policy. Annual reports by the State Development and Planning Commission (SDPC) report that the nation's nominal GDP has risen from $26.88 trillion to $28.23 trillion between 2017 and 2019 thanks to additional trade surplus and debt payback alone. At the same time, however, the Secretary-General has spearheaded the initiation of multiple "people's wars" (such as the Israeli-Asiatic War lasting from 2017-2018) and interventions (such as the Cromwell Island Rebellion in 2019) during his first two years of governance, and has encouraged larger military build-up by supporting domestic initiatives (such as State-President Kazuo Shii's "Strengthen Our Seas" agenda).
The March 25 Uprising (2019), which the World Assembly Human Rights Council (WAHRC) estimates to have involved anywhere between 180-250 deaths of radical Melanesian nationalists, has recently put the Secretary-General's continued military build-up in the limelight, described by the Neo-Manila Post as "one of the most atrocious protests against the continued build-up of miltiary bases in frontier states". The Ministry of Justice (MOJ) reports at least 19 cases against the Pan-Asiatic States Armed Forces (PASAF) have been filed regarding military violation of civillian and/or ancestral territories, 2 of which almost led to the Secretary-General's impeachment in 2018. However, official surveys indicate that it has been this militarization that bodes well with a majority of Asians, especially mainland Chinese and Tagalogs, 89.09% of whom believe that Comrade Abra's reign (as of January 2019) has "generally improved and advanced the living conditions of the citizens of the Pan-Asiatic States". Restricting the aforementioned polls to members of the Asian Communist Party (ACP) alone, however, approval ratings plummet to only 34.98%.
Comrade Abra's policies have popularized the revitalization of Conservative Socialism amongst Pan-Asiatic officials. Proclaiming that "Orthodox Marxism has vandalized the aims of the Communist Revolution", much controversy has sprouted from his political career due to his opposition to Trotskyism, "commendation" of German Strasserite advocacies, and support of the National Igarashi Eugenics program. Detractors criticize his lack of moral compass in wartime, or as one of his electoral rivals, Congresswoman Mo Go-Eun, a self-described "Libertarian Socialist", puts it, "[Guanyu Abramovich Jr.] is brutally authoritarian, a backflip to tyranny".
The Secretary-General is also the author of The Governance of Asia (Part I: 2014, Part II: 2018), and his policies, which have urged a "new campaign" for dekulakization, support for education subsidization, and nationalization of the economy; are commonly referred to as Guanyu Abramovich Thought.
Guanyu was raised into a marginalized family in Pasig City, Philippines during the Third Pacific War. Conditions of living in a war-torn city under the constant paranoia of nuclear annihilation was a struggle that young Guanyu lived through. He was the only child of Guanyu Abramovich Sr., an immigrant Sino-Russian coal mine manager during the time; and Teresa Florante, a housewife Filipina. From his infancy to the age of 11, he lived in the crammed suburbs of Barangay Don Juan, Pasig.
Food supplies ran low in the winter of 1974, the same year that Soviet forces captured Formosa. Communist liberation forces were rapidly advancing through Asia, whilst the Imperial Japanese Army was in full retreat. Like many others, the Abramovich household evacuated the Capital in the fear of nuclear attack; with the bombs having been used on Tokyo already. As Manila served as the de-facto second Capital for the Empire, the next target for the aggressive Communist forces became a rather open secret to the public. The family moved up north, to live with some relatives in the province of Quezon (not to be confused with Quezon City). His father, Abramovich Sr., was shot and killed during a skirmish with Japanese forces near Aklan.
About three months after the evacuation of the Abramovich family, the bomb was dropped on Manila; infamously slaughtering thousands. Japanese occupants soon thereafter withdrew from the entire sub-region of Luzon, and Soviet forces would officially liberate the north a month after.
Guanyu, dismayed by the death of his colleagues, countrymen, and own father; began taking a keen interest in politics and writing during this time, accomplishing his first privately publicated pamphlets at the age of 14; criticizing the Japanese Regime. By the age of 15 (allegedly by laying about his age) he had already enlisted to join the National Democratic Front; much to the dismay of his widowed mother.
He was quick to become highly ideological of Communism in the Philippines. By age 21, he was promoted to lead a guerilla task force organized by Russo-Filipino Forces, called the Pasigueño Partisan, after their Commanding Officer was shot by a Japanese reconnaissance battalion. His achievements of valour during the War would later fuel his political agendas.
After the Third Pacific War, Guanyu was provided scholarship by the Soviet administration to finish his education in the prestegious Lomonosov Moscow State University. He would earn degrees in Law, Marxist Economics, and Political Science; returning to Neo-Manila as a lawyer in 2000.
Comrade Abra briefly returned to the Philippines to participate in The 1995 Cultural Revolution, when the then Secretary-General Sison, called for revolutionary action against the reactionists he claimed had infiltrated the ranks of government. Originally returning under the pretext of aiding the summary trials being carried-out in the cities, he soon answered the call-to-arms itself. From members of various Red Guard organizations and ex-military partisan groups (such as his old unit), he organized his own personal Red Guard, operating across Neo-Manila. Coordinating with Beijing officials, his leadership would lead to the controversial assassination of (then) Federal Congressman Rolando Abadilla Sr., an unpopular personality in part due to his leanings toward Market Socialism and his suspected involvement with a coup-de-tat plot against Secretary-General Sison, when members of his Red Guard stormed his mansion, and burnt it to the ground. The contacts he made during this undertaking would be invaluable to his political career later on.
When questioned about the assassination five years later, Comrade Abra would respond that he had no regrets about it; and that the Abadilla Family "deserved" the tragedy he had given them, consistently referring to the late Congressman as a traitor and a revisionist. Congressman Rolando Abadilla III of the Vigan 2nd District remains to be an avid advocate against Guanyu and his policies, still upset over the carefree assassination of his father.
It was also in the year 1995 that Guanyu would meet his now lawfully-wedded wife, Katrina Nishikino-Abramovich, his photographer, the daughter of Arianna and Juanito Nishikino, Korean Nationalists who had worked in the Japanese Provisional Government two decades ago. Scarce is revealed about the premarital affairs of Katrina and Guanyu, but it is widely speculated and accepted (to some degree even admitted) that their daily interactions in order to coordinate the success of the Cultural Revolution brought their relationship into fruition.
Comrade Abra's successes in both military and paramilitary service did not bode well with his political rivals, but has consistently been a factor in his electoral career since his first taste of elected political authority in 2002, when he was appointed Minister of Defense under the Third Administration by Supreme Commissary Maeng Jung. Jung and Guanyu had both fought in the Liberation of Neo-Manila; Jung under the People's Liberation Army and Guanyu under the National Democratic Front. Jung was also a close friend of Juanito Nishikino, Guanyu's father-in-law, as they had both been part of the more priveleged literate, outspoken upper-class in Japanese-occupied Korea. It is for this reason that the desicion to appoint Guanyu as Minister of Defense was likely either a meritocratic choice or a quid pro quo.
Comrade Abra's role as Minister of Defense led to the Federation's first army modernization program. Under Comrade Abra's urging, and with Supreme Comissary Maeng Jung's support, Pacific War era weapons were dismantled, discarded, or put into storage in order to accomodate more streamline and localized arms manufacturing industries.
Comrade Abra served his first elected position in September of 2005, as the Federal Commissary of the State Development and Planning Commission (SDPC), essentially as the primary fiscal adviser to the Supreme Comissary. When Supreme Commissary Maeng Jung lost the 2007 executive elections, the newly-elected Supreme Commissary, Xia Wuhan, a hardline internationalist socialist, used all his political influence to remove Guanyu from his position mostly in favor of a junior economist he thought to be more politically-aligned with his contractionary fiscal agenda. By December of 2007, a slim majority vote had already decided that Guanyu be relieved of his position as Federal Commissary of the SDPC.
Comrade Abra was briefly re-assigned to be the Undersecretary of the Pan-Asiatic Ministry of Foreign Affairs (PAMFA) from late 2007 to mid-March 2012.
In November of 2012, Comrade Abra was elected Congressional Representative of Neo-Manila's First District (Capital District), to the Federal Congress of Soviets. His service in the legislature, which lasted until November 2016, tested his leadership abilities and publicized both his military and political exploits across the Pan-Asiatic States. He personally led the authorship and subsequent victories of legislation such as the Institutionalizing Strategy for Rural Development and Reform Act of 2012, Higher Education Reform Act of 2013, the Expanded Igarashi Population Directive of 2015, and the Magna Carta for Veterans' Welfare Act of 2016.
In early 2017, he announced his desire to run for the position of Secretary-General; and eventually won by a 12.35% margin in November of that year.
Comrade Abra is now concerned with the strengthening of the Pan-Asiatic States' alliances with other culturally like-minded states through the foundation of The Srivijayan Consortium thereby continuing the "Orientalist Revolution", which he co-founded alongside Faatrik bin Samporna of The 2nd Jamahiriya of Samporna, as well as ensuring the smooth transition of the nation's initiation into politically like-minded groups such as the Environmental Conservation Organization (ECO), the International Socialist Congress (ISC), and the Socialist Union of Nations Economic Bloc (SUN Economic Bloc). The Secretary-General believes that these international organizations will become avenues for the Pan-Asiatic States to partake in the world market for the benefit of its people's state of living.
Comrade Abra's current "trickle-down diplomacy" agenda, on the other hand, is focused on the reformation of "oppressive" and "Occidental puppet-states" through the promotion of democratic institutions abroad. Combined with a more prominent role in the World Assembly, the Secretary-General hopes that controlled military force can ensure greater peace and stability in the theatre of powers. Examples of this methodology, according to him, have included the 2017 intervention in Israel, both a diplomatic and military victory insofar as its approval by the World Assembly Security Council (WASC) eventually led to the Pan-Asiatic States and the Soviet Union creating a buffer independent Palestinian State designed to challenge U.S presence in the Middle East, as well as the, the Pan-Asiatic States' participation in the Defense of Skyhooked.
Comrade Abra's administration has also expressed interest in maintaining international peace and fighting radical terrorism. Under his leadership thus far, the Pan-Asiatic States has participated in quelling a Fascist rebellion in New Narsia, and has taken a leading role against the Lumad Liberation Front (LLF) in The 2nd Jamahiriya of Samporna.
"When there is evil in this world that justice cannot defeat, would you taint your hands with evil to defeat evil? Or would you remain steadfast and righteous, even if it means surrendering to evil? In this world, evil can arise from the best of intentions. And there is good which can come from evil intentions. Perhaps we must spill yet more blood, so the blood already spilt will not be in vain. Do we really have the guts to pay the price of our freedom, and the freedom of mankind?" "Christ didn't choose the rich to preach the doctrine; he choose 12 poor ignorant workers - he chose the proletariat of the times."

Our People act as they will to, not as you command them to. Our stance on yielding to the pressure of the Capitalist countries remains as it was 28 years ago: never!" "In the Pan-Asiatic Army, it takes more courage to retreat than to attack." "In The Federation of Kendor, you can change parties, but not the policies. In the Pan-Asiatic States, you can change the policies, but not the party." "Do you know the truth of the battlefield? Kill a single man, and it’s considered a crime.

Sonya Ruogang Yoon-Sook is a prominent leader of the Asian Communist Party (ACP), and the acting State Soviet of the Pan-Asiatic States. A known ecosocialist, she has also prided herself in subscribing to Trotskyist Thought, and 'some aspects' of Juche. Her experience as a journalist has given her an edge in talking about media theory, and she has proven to be a fierce member of the Congress of Soviets. She was also one of youngest Congressional officials of her time and is, currently, the youngest member of any Administration hitherto.
Yoon-Sook's initial proposals during her first and only term gave her a booming claim-to-fame; an environment-oriented journalist who, despite not having fought in the war per se, navigated post-war reparation better than any of her peers. She fervently supported the Igarashi Law, as well as many Foreign Aid policies of the Federation. Yoon-Sook has been highly criticized for leading the Pan-Asiatic States into several foreign interventions. Many see her as promise of a new World Revolution, and even more support her for her administrative expertise. Her swearing-in as a Federal official meant there remains a huge following of Libertarian Socialism in a mostly Marxist-Leninist-Maoist country. Yoon-Sook has been honored as a resolver of many legislative deadlocks, even as a City Councillor.
Her young ideas however, are not taken entirely pacifistic. Interventionist leanings as State Soviet saw a rise of worldwide Pan-Asiatic deployments and engagements since November 2017, most of which through rushed war proposals. Critics have also defamed her for her indecisiveness regarding Women's Rights, and her lack of agenda towards meeting the demands of the slowly-growing Third Wave Feminist movement.
Yoon-Sook was the daughter of Henri Kangjon Sonya, a librarian, and Mila Mae-Sonya, a typist in Moscow. Fleeing from political strife in the Far East together with many others in a community of ethnic Han Chinese and a minority of Koreans within a minority, she was considered a fully-fledged Soviet citizen by law during her childhood and formative years, and lived most of that life studying Marxist theory in an Orthodox Christian school, Yaroslavovich Academy.
Yaroslavovich Academy, tucked away North at the outskirts of the Soviet capital, was, according to her memoirs 'mostly dull'. Her father was the first to introduce her to politics, Henri being one of the Soviet political delegates to the Vladivostok Conference. Both of her parents holding very anti-Imperialist sentiments, after-hour political talks with the city's accomplished writers and scholars would occur in the backroom of her father's library, with her mother taking center-stage in many of the debates.
Her interest in politics would grow only further when she entered her formative years. At age 16, her mother Mila passed away of leukemia, and the young ideologue would find herself hopelessly depressed at this loss, turning to atheism after a more 'studious' approach to her Marxist literature. She and her father moved to Neo-Manila, capital of the young Pan-Asiatic States. It was also then that she would begin an interest in journalism, and eventually pursued this career later.
Rumors of several political scandals, hopes of better job opportunities, admittedly wanting to escape the paranoid grip of the Cultural Revolution, and a dying father in need of more advanced medical treatment led her to migrate to Andong in 1995. She continued her college education at Andong National University, with a degree in political science. Her father would peacefully pass-away in 2009 from chronic hypertension.
Yoon-Sook's recognized 'primer' into politics began with one of the articles she had written in 1998, on the Andong Chronicle, investigating corruption allegations surrounding Federal Congressman Myo Hyon-U. Her information, which many considered controversial as others who had looked into it in the past had winded up dead or missing, eventually led to an official case being charged against Hyon-U, leading to his arrest on the grounds of illegal money-laundering in May 1999. Active in the Youth League and garnering support for her other journalist works, such as editorials on climate change; she paved her own way to garner support from the masses, and eventually, was elected into 2001 Congress of Soviets at age 25, one of the youngest at the time. Initially a career politician, Yoon-Sook would find herself in a political warzone.
Her 2006 electoral loss was backed still by political determination, and her return to politics was indicted by what was essentially a guarantee of appointment by long-time retirement-age Mayor Kwon Ho-Sung as a City Councillor, a heavily administrative line of work. She navigated the bureaucracy of urban planning for the next 3 years of her life, studying it while she practiced it, leading a quiet one in Andong. Nevertheless, those 3 years were very accomplished; and she is credited with the renovation of many of the city's essential services, as well as securing strong patents from the Ministry of Defense to pour more funds into the strengthening of the local gendarme. It is said that she had multiple quarrels with former Head of Government Xia Wuhan during this point of her life, in attempting to secure more investment funds from the central government to funnel into the city. In three years time, she had elevated the city's position from a provincial polity devastated by the Japanese into an urban city-center.
In 2017, she ran for the position of State Soviet; and won with her trademark campaign endorsing herself and her campaigns. She has promised the Federation to apply the lessons she had learned in Andong in managing the entirety of the Federation.

"The nations of the East hope that through communication, trade, and diplomacy; all the world's nations will be as one family."
Ren Cao (pronounced Ren Sao) is the Supreme Commissary of the Pan-Asiatic States, a Marxist-Leninst member of the Asian Communist Party (ACP), and Human Rights advocate; having held multiple terms as a Congressman on both Federal and State level. He also acted as the Mayor of one of the Pan-Asiatic States' newest settlements, Nuevayangtze City. Ren Cao is famous for being the son of another 'great' Asian legislator and war veteran, Ren Hui, and both figures have been notable for being 'fan favorites' of voters for their many accomplished terms as members of the Federal Congress. Following the assassination of Supreme Commissary Fernando Lawrencio III, an emergency election between members of the Federal Congress on May 20 won Cao a seat on the Sixth Administration. He will be governing the Pan-Asiatic States as its de facto Supreme Commissary until the current administration's term ends.
Ren Cao was raised in Beijing, China during the period of the Southeast Asian Soviet Offensive, to Ren Hui, a footsoldier of the Red Army for most of his childhood, and Ren Chan, a housewife. He lived with his two twin brothers of the same age, Ren Fei and Ren Zhuo, in the concrete slums of the new capital of the former People's Republic of China. The Ren household was a traditionalist Taoist one. Life in post-revolutionary Beijing was relatively easy-going even though most of its infrastructure had been destroyed during the conflict, due to quick rehabilitation efforts provided-for by the Soviet Union at the time. Ren Hui says that he initially wanted to be a biologist in his youth, as he took an interest in the anatomy of insects and small, roadkill animals during his time as a student of Xiyi Elementary School, one of the newly-renovated educational centers in the area, where he studied diligently together with his two brothers. He graduated in the school's first batch, with average marks in all subjects except History, which he excelled in. Cao lived a mostly ordinary life, and his father frequently sent him and his mother letters through the army's courier service.
Cao's father, Hui, former Colonel for the National Democratic Front, served under both Chinese and Soviet armies throughout his career as an intelligence officer. He has been credited with the interrogation and infiltration of several key military bases from behind enemy lines in Hokkaido. He also commanded a Scout Company for the Red Army during the Battle of North Borneo, and has been credited with at least 51 confirmed kills as an infantryman.
Cao would see his father around two to three times a year for an average of around three to four weeks of leave from the Army. Ren Hui was a War-Hero by the time his children had graduated high school from Geng Shui Public High School, northeast on the outskirts of Beijing. Cao and his brothers moved further to this provincial side of the city when his family had been relocated by the local authorities for administrative purposes. While the new accomodations were reportedly much more ideal the previous one, Cao also stated that it was at this time in his life that he was exposed to the living conditions of the majority of agrarian workers in the coutnryside. While Ren Fei and Ren Zhuo excelled in mathematics and the sciences, Ren Cao preferred social science and the humanities. Cao claims to have read important Marxist political literature during his adolesence, at Geng Shui's open library, works to the likes of Marx's masterpiece, Das Kapital; Quotations of Chairman Mao Zedong; the Communist Manifesto; and even Philippine Society and Revolution. However, he also says that he expressed interest in American literature, such as Crime and Punishment as well as the Great Gatsby. Cao frequented local news stalls, and was eventually absorbed into the Maoist fever of the 70s and 80s. According to Cao, he simply drew conclusions on the current political climate based on what he could get his hands on.
Cao also participated in several Red Youth Leagues. Cao was chosen to lead the singing of "The Internationale" in front of the Chinese State Congress, when the Chinese Communist Party decided to select 'young future Party members' to showcase to a joint conference with a Soviet Delegation in 1979. Cao was known to be one of the more prominent local rally-organizers in Beijing, and most of his early student-jobs were as typists for city administrators, such as the Office of the Mayor.
The Chinese Communist Party granted him a scholarship in the prestegious Peking University, where he gave-up all his pursuits to become a scientist in favor of pursuing Law and Political Science. Publicly-released letters from his father state that Cao and his brothers were explicitly prohibited from joining the army like their father all throughout the War Years.
Ren Cao entered the Chinese Communist Party (which only two years later, would become the Asian Communist Party) in 1989, at the age of 23, which would mark the beginning of his political aspirations. When his father returned home and retired from service in the Army in 1990, his entire family soon followed his own political aspirations; all of them eventually becoming registered Party members by 1991. Cao's brothers served as accountants for the Party, his mother a voluntary writer for a local tabloid, and his father, as a veteran of the Army, moved to its logistical division as a pension-fund administrator.
The student culture of the 90s, centered on what was being called during the era as the "New Chinese Dream" encouraged intellectuals in the cities to work in the countryside for a time during their education, and then returning to serve it after graduation. Ren Cao was fanatical about this aspiration, and he had volunteered to work alongside a family of sheep-herders in Shenzhen for two years from May 1991 to March 1992. While working there, he organized the provincial rallies against local Soviet administrators who refused to let go of their positions, and participated in gatherings with leading independence movements, such as the Free Asia Society and the Chinese-Asiatic Cooperation Organization. Effectively, Cao became the voice of city-based organizations in rural areas of Shenzhen; going door-to-door spreading Maoist propaganda and recruiting young men into the newly-constituted Pan-Asiatic States Armed Forces.
Like many of his peers, he participated in the 1995 Cultural Revolution as a Red Guard Cadre Volunteer. He, together with his father and his father's old military fraternity, spearheaded the Peking sect of the Cultural Revolution. They participated in several milita raids against known corrupt party officials, though none particularly of importance. His experiences in 1995 led him to beg his father to allow him to volunteer for the Pan-Asiatic States Armed Forces for a few years, since after all, their operations had already placed him in favor with many local officers. His wish was granted and Cao was placed in the 9th Pan-Asiatic Frontier Division, undergoing basic military service, and serving from 1995 to 1997. His time stationed in the AMC Northern Mission Control, which was centered around the area of operations of Harbin, China only ever saw him in combat once, during a patrol. In his first year, Cao was placed on the frontlines against a known Neo-Kuomintang hideout near the outskirts of Harbin. Here, he and a company of men were ambushed while escorting a cache of munitions to an artillery regiment. Completely unprepared, the 9th took 6 casualties. Cao was grazed by a blow from a machete to the face, but was otherwise unharmed.
In December of 1997, Cao came home from the Army as somewhat of a local warhero himself, and many urged him to try politics as his father did while he was away. Since 1995, his father had been a member of the Federal Congress for the Peking District, legislating both the Environmental Efficiency Act and the Offensive Communications Act as a prime leader of political and socio-economic reform. While Hui served on the Federal level, Cao served as Beijing District's congressional representative to the Chinese District Assembly, replacing long-time 'Deng Loyalist' Xia Huan. Cao's first run in the CDA would last from December 29, 1997 to December 31, 2007. Some considered the two dynastic, as it was taboo for two relatives to run in representation of a single district on two levels. Ultimately, many consider this what led to the decline of support for Cao in 2007, when he himself was replaced by a much more upstart politician, Wei Zan, nicknamed "Beijing's Loudspeaker" for her ferociousness in political debates (Ren Cao, in contast is timid when it comes to political confrontation).
While Ren Hui continued his career as a Federal Congressional until January 2019, when he permanently retired at the age of 80, Ren Cao seemed to be his incarnate. Taking a break from politics after his defeat in 2007, he worked as an alumni University professor of Law in Beijing, at Peking University until 2010, when he decided to seek out better political opportunities at the newly-constructed city of Nuevayangtze, where he worked as a City Planner.
Ren Cao eventually rose to the position of Mayor of Nuevayangtze in 2014, beating the much-disliked Mayor Lu Hong, who had only served a single term for his incompetence at managing the city's economics. Lu Hong, a former General, was much unfavored due to his frequent appointment of former war veterans instead of capable men. In contrast to the previous Mayor, Ren appointed staff based on meritocratic displays of skill rather than favor.
Ren Cao served as Nuevayangtze's Mayor from November 10, 2014 to November 14, 2017. During this time, he accomplished a plethora of economic reforms regarding advancement in the city's IT and BPO sectors. He managed the creation of several new call center agencies, gave subsidies to Asia Telecomm to invest their resources into the city, and expanded the number of state-media companies in the area; generating thousands of high-paying jobs for urban workers. He worked closely with State-President Xi Jinping regarding the translation of the national development to local development: expanding and controlling the economic growth of the region in relation to the rest of the country's. These advancements ultimately led to him being christened by Nuevayangtze's people as the 'Silicon Mayor'.
In November of 2017, Cao won a seat in the Federal Congress as Nuevayangtze's District 1 representative. Since his father still served as Beijing's Federal Congressman, the two briefly served together until his father's retirement in 2019.
In May of 2019, Supreme Commissary Fernando Lawrencio III was assassinated by a gunman allegedly from The Oberkönigreich of Anglomir. When the time came for an emergency election, many Federal Congressmen regarded Ren Cao as being the man with the most executive experience, and, having served in both the Red Guard and the Army, one of the most popular figureheads of Pan-Asiatic society today. Ren Cao won the position of acting Supreme Commissary of the Pan-Asiatic States and will continue serving until the end of the current adminstration's term.

The 1992 Constitution of the Pan-Asiatic States
Asia is one of the countries with the longest histories in the world. The people of all nationalities in Asia have jointly created a splendid culture and have promulgated a glorious revolutionary tradition. The Asian proletarians waged wave upon wave of heroic struggles for national independence, liberation, democracy, recognition, and freedom. Great and earth-shaking historical changes have taken place in Asia since the 20th century. Widespread death brought by American and British Imperialism in the Southeastern regions, and by the Tojo Regime in the Far East had but crippled the resolute pride of the indigenous inhabitants of this united continent. Thereupon the Asian people took state power into their own hands and became masters of the country.
After the founding of the People's Republic, the transition of Asian society from divided democratic Nation-States to a Soviet Socialist Society was established step-by-step. The socialist transformation of the private ownership of the means of production was completed, the system of exploitation of man by man eliminated and the socialist system established. The people's democratic dictatorship led by the working class and based on the alliance of workers and peasants, which is in essence the dictatorship of the proletariat, has been consolidated and developed. The Sino-Austronesian people and the New People's Army have thwarted aggression, sabotage and armed provocations by imperialists and hegemonists, safeguarded Asia's national independence and security and strengthened its national defense. Major successes have been achieved in economic development. An independent and fairly comprehensive socialist system of industry has in the main been established. There has been a marked increase in agricultural production. Significant progress has been made in educational, scientific, cultural and other undertakings, and socialist ideological education has yielded noteworthy results. The living standards of the people have improved considerably. Both the victory of Asia's new-democratic revolution and the successes of its socialist cause have been achieved by the proletarians of all nationalities under the leadership of the Asian Communist Party, the guidance of Marxism-Leninism and Mao Zedong Thought, by upholding truth, correcting errors and overcoming numerous reactionary adversaries, difficulties and hardships.
Therefore, we, the sovereign, and newly united Asian people, imploring the aid of our Forefathers, in order to build a just and humane society, and establish a Government that shall promote the will of the people, preserve the Dictatorship of the Proletarian, conserve and develop our patrimony, and secure to ourselves and our posterity, the blessings of Independence, Socialism and Democracy under the rule of law and a regime of truth, justice, freedom, love, equality, and everlasting glory, do ordain and promulgate this Constitution- which will embody the ideals and aspirations of every Asian proletarian under the almighty people's banner.

(i) Administration of Adjudication - The Ministry of Justice shall represent the judiciary branch in coordination with the executive. The people's courts adopt the system whereby a case should be finally decided after two trials. This means:
(b) Judgment or orders of the first instance of the local people's courts at various levels become legally effective if, within the prescribed period for appeal, no party makes an appeal.
(c) Judgments and orders of the court of the second instance shall be seen as final decisions of the case. However, any judgments and orders rendered by the Supreme People's Courts as the court of the first instance shall become immediately legally effective.
(ii) Supercession - All courts are under the administrative authority of the Supreme Commissary, through his ambassador to the Ministry, the Minister of Justice, though in its executive aspects only; insofar as the administration of its budget and in its collaboration with the Federal government to promulgate. This means that the Federation remains restricted in interfering with the democratic appointment of key court officials, and in the proceedings of motions.

(b) A civil division,
(c) An economic division,
(d) and an Ombudsman's division on both Federal and State levels.
(e) It may have such other divisions, as the Ministry of Justice necessitates, if approved by the Congress of Soviets.
(iv) Jurisdiction of the Supreme People's Courts - The Supreme People's Court supervises the work of the local people's courts at various levels as well as the special courts. "The Supreme People's court give interpretation on questions concerning specific application of laws and decrees in judicial proceedings." In reality, the practice of interpreting laws and decrees by the Supreme People's Court has developed in recent years to an extent that is called "judicial legislation". The legislation does require guidance in order to fill gaps and to solve conflicts and some vagueness among the laws so that effective enforcement can be carried out by the judicial branch. However, the Supreme People's Courts shall primarily supervise the following:
(b) Appealed and protested cases against judgments and other orders of higher people's courts and special people's courts;
(c) Protested cases filed by the Supreme People's Procuratorate.
(iv) The Higher People's Courts - The Higher People's Courts are courts of provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the Central Government. The internal structure is almost the same as that of the Supreme People's Court according to the definition of the organic Law.
A higher people's court deals with cases of the first instance assigned by laws and decrees, cases of the first instance transferred from people's courts at the next lower level, cases of appeals and of protests lodged against judgments and orders of people's courts at the next lower level, and cases of protests lodged by people's procuratorates.
(v) The Intermediate People's Courts - They are the courts established in capitals or prefectures in the provincial level. The scope of jurisdiction by an intermediate people's court covers cases of first instance assigned by laws and decrees, cases of first instance transferred from the basic people's courts, and appealed and protested cases from the lower court.
(vi) The Basic People's Courts - The basic courts, as the lowest level, are normally located at the county, municipal districts and autonomous counties. A basic people's court may set up a number of people's tribunal according to the conditions of the locality, population and cases involved. A people's tribunal is a component of the basic people's court, and its judgments and orders are considered as judgments and orders of the basic people's court with the same legal effects. In practice, a tribunal of this nature is often set up in big town or townships where there is a concentrated population. As defined in the Organic Law, the basic people's court adjudicates all criminal and civil cases of the first instance except where the law provides otherwise. Besides trying cases, a basic people's court is also responsible for settling civil disputes, handling minor criminal cases that do not require formal handling, and directing the work of the people's mediation committees.
(vii) The Special Courts - The special courts include military courts, railway courts and maritime courts. The military court that is established within the Pan-Asiatic States Armed Forces is in charge of hearing criminal cases involving servicemen. This is a relatively closed system.
The railway and transport court deals with criminal cases and economic disputes relating to railways and transportation.
Five maritime courts have been established by the Supreme People's Court at the port cities of Neo-Manila, Shanghai, Qingdao, Kota Kinabalu and Neo-Singapore. These courts have jurisdiction over maritime cases and maritime trade cases of the first instance, including any other disputes of this category taking place between Chinese and foreign citizens, organizations, and enterprises. Nevertheless, they have no jurisdiction over criminal cases and other civil cases belonging to the ordinary courts. The higher people's court in the locality where a maritime court is located shall have jurisdiction over appeals against the judgment and orders of the maritime court.

Igarashi Eugenics is the collective term referring to a number of Eugenics reforms implemented by the Pan-Asiatic Congress of Soviets. Igarashi Eugenics, also known as the The Red Strings of Science (RSS), refers to the collective of government-mediated marriage matchmaking systems, birth control policies, parental licensing and statewide human cloning programs primarily designed to directly control overpopulation in the Pan-Asiatic States. Created in 1999 and proposed by the late Soviet Congressman, Ryou Igarashi (1939-2016); the broad Eugenics agenda aims to "relieve the pressure of [current] welfare programs on the Pan-Asiatic Communist Economy." (Igarashi, 1995)
A State-Arranged marriage in Seoul
A Statistical Union refers to couples engaged through the systematic government-aided matchmaking process enforced on citizens of the Pan-Asiatic States. The process itself is rather bureaucratic, and aims to provide two individuals with genetically similar traits deemed by the system "moral" enough to raise children. A series of tests are provided to citizens by the Bureau of Population Control (BPC) to determine personality types, interests, outlooks on life, and philosophies of each individual.
These tests are annual, and are mandatorily required by each educational curriculum by the Ministry of Education.
By age 25, the couple must take the Parental Psycho-Analysis Exam; which is the final examination that will determine whether re-tests are required to select a new possible spouse for both subjects, i.e separation; or whether the couple will be ready to accept a Parental License. A VAT-manufactured Child can be claimed by the parents soon after this test is passed. They are required by law to take care of their child until the child has reached 18 years of age; when their child will have been expected to move into a new assigned household by the Ministry of Urban Development.
Couples who break this law (i.e. Marrying someone they are not assigned to or calling off the arrangement) will be punished in form of fines and are socio-culturally marked as social outcasts. It will be hard for them to find a job or apply for schools. Though technically legal, it is worth noting that according to many illegal emigrants who have experienced breaking off Statistical Unions, have reported that the impact of doing so can tremendously affect the course of one's life in the Pan-Asiatic States.
The World Census has noted that this may have been an underlying factor for both the high-ranking suicide rates in the Pan-Asiatic States (Top 11th in the World, 2017) and the eventual implementation of the Euthanasia Legalization Law of 2004.
Bokanovsky's Process (2000, National Archives)
Bokanovsky's Process is a scientific convention for human cloning adapted by Igarashi Eugenics, first founded by Aldous Bokanovsky in 1984 and further developed by different Russo-Asian scientists after his death in 1987 during the Third Pacific War.
In layman's terms; the process is applied to fertilized human eggs in vitro, causing them to split into identical genetic copies of the original. The process can be repeated several times, though the maximum number of viable embryos possible is 96.
Body cells are tampered with and manipulated by artificial cells and through tedious Sakuradite-infused chemicals, known collectively when manufactured as Variable Attraction Triphosphate; or simply, VAT-Cells.
"One egg, one embryo, one adult, that is the status quo. But a Bokanovskified egg will bud, will proliferate, and will divide. From eight to ninety-six buds, and every bud will grow into a perfectly formed embryo, and every embryo into a full-sized adult. Making ninety-six human beings grow where only one grew before."
- Dr. Eva Pollisco, Bokanovsky Theory Refined (1996)
Bokanovsky's Process, combined with Molotov's Technique for speeding up the maturation of unfertilized eggs from an ovary, is used to produce massive numbers of a genetic group; which then spur from the VAT-Cell
In highly controlled social nations such as the Pan-Asiatic States, the ability for the government to control the number of humans is important, as is the ability to control the function of those humans. By cloning, manipulating, and altering appearances before birthing; according to the Asian Communist Party, prejudice can be cured. Racial difference becomes a nature of the past and indifference abolishes individualism in all its forms.
Biological reproduction in its natural form was outlawed by F.A #199 in the year 2002, primarily to eliminate the competing demand from domestic repopulation which destabilized the central planning established by the Bureau of Population Control. Contrary to popular belief, this does not outlaw the act of sexual intercourse, rather it only outlaws the act of impregnation. Citizens caught violating the ban are immediately executed regardless of age, with the illegitimate child being confiscated by the federal government for re-assignment to an Igarashi Couple.
With the powers of life and death in the hands of the State, the Federal Government, through the Igarashi Law, decided to utilize the ability of human cloning to generate Austronesianesque generations of offspring. The "Srivijayan Asians" which the States have been attempting to create, resemble Filipino-Malaysian characteristics. The aim is to create a light-brown "Kayumanggi" populace; as a tribute to the nation's Austronesian ancestry. The entire system seeks to abolish individualism in all its forms to enhance and secure Communism in the Pan-Asiatic States.

The emblem of Orientalism, adapted from Kim Il-Sung's Korean Juche insignia; representing unity between the workers (Hammer), the peasants (Sickle), and the Leaders (Torch).
Orientalism, better known today as Neo-Maoism or Pan-Asianism, known in China as New Mao Zedong Thought (Chinese: 新毛主义, Filipino: Bagong Maoismo, Japanese: ネオマオズム), is a political theory referring to the modern, post-war adaptations derived from the teachings of the Chinese political leader Mao Zedong, whose followers are known as Orientalists. Maoism itself was developed in the 1950s to organize the pseudo-Chinese Pan-Asian State which was developing from the multiple secessions and revolutions by Communist parties and revolutions aimed at repelling Japanese Imperialism, it was widely applied as the guiding political and military ideology of the Asian Communist Party and as theory guiding revolutionary movements around the world. Neo-Maoism, on the other hand, was developed during the late 90s in the newfound Pan-Asiatic States as part of the Cultural Revolution- an effort to halt the return of Capitalist culture in Asia by promoting Pan-Asianism and Communal culture.
The essential difference between Neo-Maoism and other forms of Marxism is that, according to Mao, the peasants should be the bulwark of the revolutionary energy, led by the working class in Asia. Neo-Maoism follows the same ideals, but focuses more on the restoration of Pan-Asianism and Conservative collectivism.
Identification of a specific culture of Asia or universal elements among the colossal diversity that has emanated from multiple cultural spheres and three of the four ancient River valley civilizations is complicated- yet has been revitalized through Modern Pan-Asian Socialist culture.
Asia's enormous size separates the various civilizations by great distances and hostile environments, such as deserts and mountain ranges. Yet by challenging and overcoming these distances, trade and commerce gradually developed a truly universal, Pan-Asian character. Inter-regional trade was the driving and cohesive force, by which cultural elements and ideas spread to the various subregions via the vast road network and the many sea routes.
In the late 20th Century, Filipino Socialist groups spearheaded the revolution by promoting traditional, conservative values which challenged American Bust-and-Boom Capitalist ideology. Having emerged victorious from the Second and Third Pacific Wars, the resolute culture has never been more empowered. Particularly, Pan-Asian Maoism has portrayed many distinct features which adhere to the values of ancient teachings by cultures indigenous to Asia. The Cultural Revolution which followed the victory over the Imperial Japanese saw a marriage of Neo-Conservative Filipino ideals and Communist culture. Overall, Maoism throughout the Pan-Asiatic States can be seen as a byproduct of Asian Neo-Nationalism and Historical Romanticism.
Along with iconoclasm, radical anti-imperialism dominated the Chinese intellectual tradition and slowly evolved into a fierce nationalist fervor which influenced Mao's philosophy immensely and was crucial in adapting Marxism to the Chinese model. Vital to understanding Chinese nationalist sentiments of the time is the Treaty of Versailles, which was signed in 1919. The Treaty aroused a wave of bitter nationalist resentment in Chinese intellectuals as lands formerly ceded to Germany in Shandong were—without consultation with the Chinese—transferred to Japanese control rather than returned to Chinese sovereignty. The negative reaction culminated in the May 4th Incident which occurred on that day in 1919. The protest began with 3,000 students in Beijing displaying their anger at the announcement of the Versailles Treaty's concessions to Japan, yet rapidly took a violent turn as protesters began attacking the homes and offices of ministers who were seen as cooperating with, or in the direct pay of the Japanese. The May 4th Incident and Movement which followed, "catalyzed the political awakening of a society which had long seemed inert and dormant".
Yet another international event would have a large impact not only on Mao, but also on the Chinese intelligentsia: the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. Although the revolution did elicit interest among Chinese intellectuals, socialist revolution in China was not considered a viable option until after the May 4 Incident. Afterwards, "to become a Marxist was one way for a Chinese intellectual to reject both the traditions of the Chinese past and Western domination of the Chinese present."
In the wake of Japanese defeat during the Third Pacific War, the Pan-Asiatic Economy was in shambles. Though Japanese payment of reparations had been agreed upon, and even with the support of the Comintern- the rise of Neo-Imperialism and Neo-Capitalism remained prominent amongst Conservatives. The then temporary Emmigration Ban of 1992 and the Five-Year Plan did little to subsidise industries which had been completely annihilated by the Tojo Regime. Thus, Secretary-General José María Canlás Sison, in the latter part of his first regime, initiated the sociopolitical movement known today as the Cultural Revolution of 1995.
The movement was launched in May 1995, after Secretary-General Sison alleged that bourgeois elements had infiltrated the government and society at large, aiming to restore capitalism. To eliminate his rivals within the Asian Communist Party, Sison insisted that these "revisionists" be removed through violent class struggle. Asia's youth responded to Sison's appeal by forming Red Guard groups around the country. The movement spread into the military, urban workers, and the Communist Party leadership itself. It resulted in widespread factional struggles in all walks of life. In the top leadership, it led to a mass purge of senior officials. During the same period, the Juche tradition of forming a personality cult around the current reigning Secretary-General grew to immense proportions. In the violent struggles that ensued across the country, millions of people were persecuted and suffered a wide range of abuses including public humiliation, arbitrary imprisonment, torture, hard labor, sustained harassment, seizure of property and sometimes execution.
The violent phenomenon was, however, utterly necessary in removing the arbitrary aristocracy which still retained their authority after the Third Pacific War. The Cultural Revolution, was, in essence, also an Economic struggle for the Pan-Asiatic States- collectivizing the last strains of Corporations, Businesses, and Private Industries which existed under the nose of the Asian Communist Party.
Edward Said's Orientalism
Since the publication of Edward Said's Orientalism in 1978, much academic discourse has begun to use the term "Orientalism" to refer to a general patronizing Western attitude towards Middle Eastern, Asian, and North African societies. In Said's analysis, the West essentializes these societies as static and undeveloped—thereby fabricating a view of Oriental culture that can be studied, depicted, and reproduced. Implicit in this fabrication, writes Said, is the planted idea in Western nations that Western society is developed, rational, flexible, and superior. Neo-Maoism, aligned with a more Socialistic, Democratic, and humanist endeavor of Pan-Asianism, then realizes the Pan-Asiatic States as a collective guard of the East against the rising tide of Western Globalism and Neo-Imperialism, a bastion of diversity and the antithesis to American bust-and-boom preference of individualism and logic over collectivism and morality.
The Juche Idea
Juche (/dʒuːˈtʃeɪ/; Korean: 주체/主體, lit. 'subject'; Korean pronunciation: [tɕutɕʰe]; usually left untranslated or translated as "self-reliance") is an antithesis to Soviet Trotskyism founded by Korean resistance movements during the Third Pacific War, described by the Pan-Asiatic government as "Kim Il-sung's original, brilliant and revolutionary contribution to national and international thought". It postulates that "man is the master of his destiny", that the Asian masses are to act as the "masters of the revolution and construction" and that by becoming self-reliant and strong a nation can achieve true socialism.
The practice of Juche is firmly rooted in the ideals of sustainability through agricultural independence and a lack of dependency. The Juche ideology has been criticized by many scholars and observers as a mechanism for sustaining the Democratic rule of the Pan-Asiatic regime and justifying the country's heavy-handed isolationism-- i.e, restrictions on emigration and immigration. It has also been described as a form of Asian ethnic nationalism, but one that promotes Socialism as the saviors of the "Austro-Asian race" and acts as a foundation of the subsequent collective Emancipation Theology.
The Bayanihan Spirit
Bayanihan (pronounced as buy-uh-nee-hun) is a Filipino custom derived from a Filipino word “bayan”, which means nation, town or community. The term bayanihan itself literally means “being in a bayan”, which refers to the spirit of communal unity, work and cooperation to achieve a particular goal.
The concept of Bayanihan is traced back to a Filipino tradition which can still be observed in rural areas, wherein the town’s people- especially the men, are asked to lend a hand to a family who will move into a new place. The relocation does not only involve moving the family’s personal belongings but most importantly, it concerns the transfer of the family’s entire house to a new location. A traditional Filipino house (Bahay Kubo) is made of indigenous materials such as bamboo and nipa/anahaw leaves.
A Bayan Carrying a Bahay Kubo
In order for the volunteers to carry the house, bamboo poles are tied length-wise and cross-wise and go under the house. Approximately, it will take about 15-20 volunteers to carry a house and together they’ll move in unison heading to the family’s new place. As a token of gratitude, the family serves food to the volunteers at the end of the move.
The Bayanihan spirit shows the Asian concept of helping one another most especially in times of need without expecting anything in return. Asians strongly believe in helping their “kababayan (countrymen)” in any possible way they can do, to extend a helping hand. It is a beautiful Asian mentality of helping one another. The bayanihan spirit lives on among Filipinos even in modern days and has been demonstrated in many forms, such as when natural calamities or disasters strike. Asians will go out of their way to help their kababayan in need.
In Pan-Asiatic culture, Bayanihan justified the adherence of Communism specifically to Asia. Immortalized in propaganda and manifestos, this culture was the driving force which radicals sought to promote through Asian Socialism. This restoration of culture is seen in the daily lives of the citizens of the Pan-Asiatic States today, the selflessness that defines the very Asian Spirit.
The theory of the New Democracy was known to the Chinese revolutionaries from the late 1940s. This thesis held that for the majority of the people of the planet, the long road to socialism could only be opened by a "national, popular, democratic, anti-feudal and anti-imperialist revolution, run by the communists".
Holding that "Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun", Maoism emphasizes the "revolutionary struggle of the vast majority of people against the exploiting classes and their state structures", which Mao termed a "people's war". Mobilizing large parts of rural populations to revolt against established institutions by engaging in guerrilla warfare, Maoist Thought focuses on "surrounding the cities from the countryside".
Maoism views the industrial-rural divide as a major division exploited by capitalism, identifying capitalism as involving industrial urban developed First World societies ruling over rural developing Third World societies. Maoism identifies peasant insurgencies in particular national contexts were part of a context of world revolution, in which Maoism views the global countryside would overwhelm the global cities. Due to this imperialism by the capitalist urban First World towards the rural Third World, Maoism has endorsed national liberation movements in the Third World.
Contrary to the Leninist vanguard model employed by the Bolsheviks, the theory of the Mass line holds that party must not be separate from the popular masses, either in policy or in revolutionary struggle. To conduct a successful revolution the needs and demands of the masses must be the most important issues.
The theory of the Cultural Revolution states that the proletarian revolution and the dictatorship of the proletariat does not wipe out bourgeois ideology—the class-struggle continues and even intensifies during socialism, therefore a constant struggle against these ideologies and their social roots must be conducted. Cultural Revolution is directed also against traditionalism.
The Asian Communist Party adheres strongly to the concept of a unified, Pan-Asian population. Many of the pillars of Maoism such as the distrust of intellectuals and the abhorrence of occupational specialty are typical populist ideas. The concept of "People's War" which is so central to Maoist thought is directly populist in its origins. Mao believed that intellectuals and party cadres had to become first students of the masses to become teachers of the masses later. This concept was vital to the strategy of the "People's War".

In rural areas, thanks to lackluster gendarme funding, taking the law into your own hands isn't only allowed; it's expected. Asian society has one overriding rule - respect others, or face the consequences.
