Emperor announces opening of JAXA and a new set of policies

TOKYO --- The Emperor and Empress has announced the opening of a new Space Agency known as JAXA or, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency.

The national Space Agency of Japan will be focused on creating space infrastructure and conducting research beyond the stars and the planet Earth. The Space Agency will be able to create satellites for other industries (TV, internet, etc.) and branches of the Imperial government (Military, Environment, etc.). JAXA will be funded 3% of the Japanese GDP which may grow due to an increase in foreign investors, industries and trade. As well as the new West Pacific Treaty Organization that ensures all Pacific nations will benefit from each other.

"JAXA shall be our first steps to educating our people on the worlds beyond ours, and shall be used as a way to employ more scientists and to create more beneficial jobs within the Imperial Government. " The Empress says, the whole crowd claps for her and cameras started taking pictures, she respectfully smiled and awaited for the clapping to stop and sat down on the Papasan chair.

    Violence is a last resort to ensure the integrity of our nation.

  • Defense in Depth
    Let the enemy come to us. We shall fight them for every inch of sea, every island, every city that lies within our control. We shall never surrender.

  • Hit and Run
    A superior foe can be gradually whittled down by repeated hit and run attacks. The killing blow is delivered only when the odds are favorable.

    Our population will have all their nutritional needs met, but food is a precious resource and frivolous waste should be avoided.

Economic Policy
Enacted: September, 2141

  • Mixed Economy
    To commit ourselves fully to either war or peace is to restrict ourselves to a narrow view. We must be ready for whatever the future may hold.

Trade Policy
Enacted: September, 2141

  • Consumer Benefits
    Profits and taxes must take second place to improving the lives of our citizens. We should focus our trade efforts towards the manufacture and distribution of everyday necessities.

After the announcement of JAXA and the policies, the Emperor hosted a party at night in a luxurious Japanese hotel in which all Imperial members of the Japanese Imperial family were invited onto the top of the skyscraper where the party was. Everyone wore formal black clothing to the party.

The Emperor was leaning towards the railing and looking towards the night sky of Japan and the lights of the Urban City of Tokyo. He had a glass of sake in his hands taking a sips of the alcoholic drink.

Prince and General Secretary Hirohisa tries to find the Emperor through the party as per usual. He finds him alone looking at the city of Tokyo, he approaches him and looks to the direction to where the Emperor is looking and says, "My Emperor, I have urgent news for you," his eyes shifted towards the Emperor.

"What is it again Hirohisa," he sighed drinking a bit of the sake.

"It's about Deugaw, we belie. . ." Hirohisa was then interrupted by the Emperor who said, "It seems to always be about Deugaw, Hirohisa, what have they done now? Tested a new weapon of mass destruction? They are further away from us, Hirohisa, how do they pose a threat to our existence?" the Emperor questioned him.

"No my Imperial majesty, Deugaw has lost several of their trading partners, I suggest that we also sanction them as some of our allies did." he responded, the Emperor takes a brief second to think and then asks Hirohisa.

"What made these countries respond to them just now?" he asked.

Hirohisa again responded "Well, the nation has started developing chemical weapons for defensive action in case any nation tries to assault their lands they will deploy these weapons into action within their borders to eliminate the attackers."

"Chemical weapons? Impose embargoes just because of Chemical weapons!? So no one will impose sanctions on them because they have a weapon that can eliminate cities, destroy lives and destroy the environment but they will impose sanctions on a nation that develops bloody chemical weapons!?" he said, drinking the whole glass of sake and firmly putting it on a table and looking directly at Hirohisa.

"I know you are mad, my Emperor, though, I believe we must also follow up with this and place sanctions on the nation."

"I believe you are right but I have a plan to purpose to you, it shall involve the help with one of our fellow friends the Mitsubishi family of Mitsubishi (三菱財閥)."

"What? What are you planning to do my Emperor?" Hirohisa questioned the Emperor.

"It shall be simple, as they have lost several of their trading partners, the people of Deugaw may just be unhappy with the president and may suffer from the economic depression. With this situation happening, we can have the Mitsubishi corporation create consumer goods for the nations general public. Though here is the catch, we will infiltrate their people and have them protest against the government on their chemical weapons,"

"And how shall this be done?"

"Mitsubishi Corporation also creates electronics, food & beverages and other products. We can use our Zaibatsus to help Deugaw but also to show how great our nation is if we peacefully use nuclear technology and not produce such weapons like chemical or biological arenals. It shall be through images, advertisements, emails, whatever can get the message through the general public, though we will not try to put the nation Deugaw down, we shall just show how great Japan is through these means."

"I see, though what will foreign nations think of this,"

"Well, I wouldn't call it evil if we are only supporting the people whom live there, allow their civilians to migrate here and see how fantastic Japan is. And it shall be for the greater good of disarming their chemical weapons, though I hope that no blood shall be shed on their land."

"I see, well, as long as you explain your reasons to other nations privately of your acts then I guess we shall be alright, I could only say goodluck with however you may get to break a deal with the government of Deugaw." he said.

"Don't worry, I shall figure someway to do that, I shall just talk to the Mitsubishi family and the foreign nations privately to explain what I shall plan to do." The Emperor says.

(SIC: A meeting between the Emperor and the Mitsubishi family discuss the plan that the Emperor mentioned to Hirohisa. In which the Mitsubishi family agree on the deal with the Emperor but the Emperor will pay $5 Billion to help the Mitsubishi Corporation with his plan.)

The Mitsubishi Family who owns the corporation known as Mitsubishi (三菱財閥), wishes to set up food, beverages and electronic industries in Deugaw to help the general public of the nation whomst have done nothing.

Sure, why not? Strict government regulations and other security on your products will be imposed to prevent them from falling in the wrong hands. Thank you!

(OOC: I'm sure food, beverages and electronics (computers, phones, etc.) will not pose some sort of weapon, though I wouldn't know if advertisements on Japanese prosperity wouldn't be restricted, will it?)

Well you said it yourself in the meeting between the President and your diplomat that Japan isn't a democracy, did you not? I wouldn't want to encourage my people to migrate to a nation where their voices wont be heard. I'm sure you understand.

Well, I guess that means you will be stripping off the brand names of every product as that may be used as advertising quality Japanese products and will be denying some rights to foreign corporations. Though I do understand this decision but we don't accept foreigners from nations that do not have an embassy, though we do accept refugees that seek asylum within Japan.

You know how we could solve this?

By not doing it.

Deugaw wrote:You know how we could solve this?

Alrighty then, guess I will withdraw Mitsubishi's presence in Deugaw

OOC: Imma rewrite the whole plane hijacking. It never happened, just, just, just lemme rewrite it.

GAH!

''I see this as a more modern and economically way of brainwashing.'' the President said putting the file on the table. His Secretary of Industry looked at him. ''Mr President, your Doctrine states that no nation, under any circumstances, will interfere in our domestic affairs, and any action like that will result in military response.'' he said sternly. The President stared at him sarcastically ''Hugh, if what your suggesting is that we respond to this wouldn't bade well for any of us. The Doctrine is a guideline, not a rule.'' The President closed the file and passed it back. ''They're obviously upset over the Chemical Weapon Act, which,'' the President pointed a finger at him, ''the general threatened me to sign at gunpoint. Until we can get a proper civil service or anti corruption committee to help us on this, I'm not exactly in charge here.'' the President tiredly and glumly expressed. The Secretary looked at him sadly. Looking at his watch, he glanced at the pitch night sky outside the planes window. He excused himself and nodded the President a goodnight. The President grabbed his papers off the table and walked towards the door. Opening the door into his bedroom, he saw his mattress beckon him towards itself. Not bothering to undress, he collapsed onto the bed and began to doze off.

The President woke up to sounds of shuffling outside his door. Groaning, he told the stranger off. ''Mr President, your 4 am briefing.'' the stranger replied. The President sighed and got up, opening the door. He was escorted to the conference room, where unshaven and tired looking advisers and military officials. Grabbing a cup of coffee, he sat down in his leather chair. ''Mr President, your Chemical Weapon Act is receiving a lot of backlash in the international stage. I have some protocols here to respond to this.'' a fresh faced adviser said, passing a file towards him. The President passed he file back. The room looked at him. The President opened his brief case and pulled out the Act. The original he managed to swipe from the Archives. The room gasped. ''And what do you plan on doing with that?'' a very stern faced general said from the end of the table. The President took a deep breath and crumpled the paper before throwing it into the trash. The people smiled. The general seethed in anger. The President looked at him and asked, ''Any objections?''. General Reynolds stood and stomped out of the room.
