The Founding of the Union... (Attn Earth VII)
OOC: This thread is going to be used to document the founding of my nation, Southeastasia.
OOC: Nice one: I see you're finally going for it after a month. Good job: Earth VII's becoming increasiingly active, and right now a major conflict is brewing in Europe, with an alliance of Warta Endor and myself working to fight CorpSec Corporation, partly because he has nuclear weapons and partly because I want to get Ireland
EDIT: I assume you'll be quickly uniting your country hassle-free with Brunei and East Timor, before moving on to bigger powers like Malaysia and the Phillipines?
OOC: No, I will be going onto Malaysia next, because its nearer. It'll be tough to convince, but the Prime Minister, who is myself, will figure a way out. Sorry I came late. I eventually figured out it was my old password that was needed to get onto Jolt.
As the news spread around the then region, controversy was inevitable. The first place where the arguing started was not in Singapore, but rather, the nation where it seceeded from: Malaysia. Bickering was occuring from the working-class areas of the federation to the Parliament in Kuala Lumpar.
The argument of the conservatives was: 'This smells eerily like imperialism. He [Neo] is masquerading as a populist, and only cares for himself.' The progressive argument was 'We should embrace this idea, Neo is an idealist that can actually reach his goal, and only means for a brighter, tolerant future!'
The passing legislature had gone on for weeks since the progressive members had proposed it. There seemed like no light at the end of the tunnel. Many waiting anxiously as the media watched on...
