The Autocracy of Order Propaganda-News Bulletin

Post by Wayward Device » Thu Jun 16, 2016 7:06 pm

At Finnian's request, a news bulletin thread for the new galaxy.

***Actuating Quantum Wave Transmitters**
***Aligning Targets***
***Target Acquired: Galactic Forum Communication Node***
***Begin Propaganda Transmission 4034***

Greetings in the name of the Autocracy of Order! Kindly observe this transmission with your sensory system of choice, of your own free will, as having one's homeworld reduced to radioactive slag often offends.

A summary of Galactic events from Cycle 4024 and 4034 will be recounted. Citizens of the Autocracy should be aware that observing this transmission will incur eligibility for random spot checks of data absorption/retention levels with sterilization for those who fall below minimum requirements.

The most important event of the last decacycle has been the expansion of the Autocracy of Order into a bastion of peace and prosperity. Guided by a wise hand, the Autocracy has expanded into two fully complete clusters with a third well on its way and two more half built along its Southern border. As well as expanding peacefully and with the full moral support of the Independent worlds conquered, the servants of Order have also successfully repulsed an invasion of the barbarous Sanzu, who in cycles past have ranged forth from their North Easterly lair to lay waste to civilized systems with polaron lance and sword. Having repulsed the invaders, the Autocracy sent a fleet to eliminate the industrial base of the savage horde, reducing their once all conquering Eldritch Jumpfleet of some 600,000 to a mere 190,000 today. Despite this the Sanzu remain a brooding, dire threat in the North East.

While it may be hard to believe, there are some others in the Galaxy who follow the true path of civilization. Directly to the South of the Autocracy lies the Human Imperium. Shielded from invaders by the Autocracy's might, they are a peaceful people who use centrally placed trade hubs and archives to make full use of their worlds. Also among those to be counted as civilized are the Hexacarbide Brotherhood, who reside next to the most North Easterly tip of the Great Nebula. While they cannot be counted as fully civilized due to their lack of foundations, they are nevertheless a centralized power dedicated to resource extraction for which they must be praised. Finally of those who cannot be called barbarians are the Trinacria. A true mystery, it seems they live in a Capital-less anarchy but retain an Ordered use of trade hubs and foundations. Some Autocracy scholars believe that they may have a secret capital hidden in an uncharted nebula but the prevailing theory is that they somehow eliminated their capital in a drive for efficiency gone awry, turning themselves into a sort of undead ghost empire.

Greatest among the barbarous peoples are the ASDF. While some think that this acronym is the relic of tribe descended from the Air&Space Defense Force of a post industrial world that lost its technology only to rise once more to greatness and conquest, the more common belief is they are mere savages who voted for an empire name that someone finger spammed on an old-time qwerty keyboard. Savages or no, their dominance of the fat bugling belly of the Great Nebula is absolute. The only other real power left among the savages is the Tesserect. Situated directly South of the noble Hexacarbide Brotherhood, they long to loot the Brotherhood's fabled treasuries and give the unending stacks of precious Hexacarbide as tribute to their cruel gods.

As well as all these Powers of note there are many upstarts rampaging blindly around the Galaxy, taking small groups of worlds only to flounder under their own inexperience. Or never expand beyond their conquest of the entirety of their Homeworlds, forever to be tinpot dictators of a tiny backwater rock.

Greetings in the name of the Autocracy of Order! Observe this transmission with your sensory system of choice, of your own free will. Failure to comply will have consequences. A summary of Galactic events between cycles 4034 and 4044 will be recounted. Citizens of the Autocracy should be aware that observing this transmission will incur eligibility for random spot checks of data absorption/retention levels with sterilization for those who fall below minimum requirements.

The most important events of the last decacycle have once again revolved around the glittering bastion of civilization that is the Autocracy of Order. As Cycle 4039 began the restless dead of the Ghost Empire Trinacria woke from their biostasis tombs, raised up their capital once more and launched an invasion of the Autocracy's undefended colonies. The death toll was in the billions but ultimately the servants of Order triumphed again. While many citizens where alarmed that a civilized trade-cluster using people would launch such an unprovoked genocidal attack, scholars where quick to point out that they must have been driven to madness after being trapped in a hellish everlasting unlife. Despite these momentous events the Autocracy is stronger that ever, encompassing six full clusters and with a Gorgos fleet that is begging the long process of providing protection and stability to every citizen.

Once again, the next most mighty among those who can be called civilized is the Human Imperium. Declining to take part in wars of unprovoked aggression, it has expanded peacefully to the Southernmost edge of the galaxy. Although its new holdings are still wild and untamed, they will doubtless soon be brought to Order as this peaceful and advanced people continue their expansion in a rigorous and efficient manner.

In the Utter Northeast, the Hexacarbide Brotherhood continues to be the sole outpost of civilization. Although lapsing into some backwards mesh-trade tendencies with a small expansion on their Eastern border and still lacking a foundation, they are nevertheless holding their own in a sea of barbarians.

The third civilized people are the Consolidated Consortium. Sandwiched uncomfortably between Autocracy and the Human Imperium, they use trade hubs and foundations to make efficient use of the limited space available to them. Although not a great power, they are to be counted among the Orderly empires.

It is with great sadness that we announce that the fourth civilized empire in the Galaxy is also the last. At only 3 cycles old with 16 worlds, bordered by the enigmatic ASDF to the South and the treacherous Sanzu to the North, the future does not look bright for little Agraria. Still, as the Autocracy has proven time and again, no barbarian horde can outmatch a civilized people dedicated to the correct centralized use of trade hubs and foundations. Only time can tell for this little spark of civilization.

Once again, the "greatest" of the barbaric peoples are the mysterious ASDF. They currently control a little over half of the most expansive and open section of the Great Nebula. Since their crude honour culture dictates rank based on how many nebula-capable vessels a noble-captain owns, their fleets of Eldtich jumpships and Cyclops starfrigates are by far the largest in the galaxy. Still, these rustic nebula dwellers seem content to keep to their gas clouds, although who can tell when they will rally forth from their gloomy home to ravage civilized worlds?

The Sanzu are next greatest, although currently through their reputation for vicious cunning and a willingness to commit genocide rather than a powerful fleet. Yet to fully recover from the result of Autocracy Punitive Raid 00001, these wily savages are still a considerable power in the North East, however long the road to regain their strength will be. Having recently sent emissaries to the servant of Order to pursue a non-aggression treaty, they seem focused on rebuilding their shattered realm, implying that wiser chiefs have risen to prominence in their fractious clans.

Sitting on the Human Imperium's Eastern border are the strange insectiod race know only as the bugzzzzzz. Simple creatures seemingly driven by crude instinct, they seem to pose little threat to civilization.

The last of the notable barbaric powers are hoa0004 and Tesserect Prime. Both sit to the South of the Hexacarbide Brotherhood, lusting after its riches while plotting against each other. While hoa0004 are nothing more than standard mesh-net primitives, Tesserect Prime seems to be experimenting with the correct use of foundations. There is some small hope among Autocracy scholars that they will come to understand the efficiencies that come from centralized trade and technology networks, but as with Agraria, only time can tell.

As always, the galaxy is littered with a collection of one world grave-empires and a handful whose leaders only know enough to take a few pre-nuclear worlds a dozen light years from their capital and do nothing with them.

Glad you enjoyed it. It's been fun so far to play an authoritarian empire that's racist to people who don't use trade clusters. And which holds perfectly justified views about nebular dwelling yokels. Did you know that people who live in nebulae have never even seen a Gorgos? Poor backwards savages. They have to strap giant vacuum cleaners to their starships just to move around and have weird resources.

And just so everyone knows, the Autocracy of Order Propaganda-News Bulletin does welcome broadcasts from other civilized regions of space and will even allow analysis of the crude transmissions of barbaric peoples, but it urges it's citizens to treat such obvious attempts at manipulation with the skepticism and contempt they deserve.

MESSAGE BEGINS

Sanzu Citadel news dispatch 4046

In the Twenty-Fifth year of the Last Great Empire, we bring great news to our citizens. The Galaxy is currently saturated in an unparalelled peace. Some of you may have heard rumours of an unprovoked attack on the citizens of the Autocracy of Order - Quite the opposite! Citizens of the Autocracy's trading posts recognized themselves as an easy target. Citizens of these worlds cried for order that the Autocracy could not offer. Industry groups calling for greater military defense reached out to our emmisaries. Deeply moved by their great dissatisfaction with their leadership, General of the Fifth Order, Tore Hermogenes, moved to station our own forces on their worlds. However, The Autocracy insists that their trading sectors remain completely and utterly undefended. So great was their insistence that our own forces were retracted to prevent further agitation.
Now, in an effort to better understand each other, our two empires have taken several worlds to act as embassies within each others' realms of controls. Our borders are now very well understood after negotiations.

Currently, The Last Great Empire's borders firmly stand as bordering the entire North-East quadrant of the galaxy. However, the North-West quadrant is nominally under Sanzu's control as well, under several agreements between other empires.

And now, for those non-citiens who have undoubtedly intercepted this new bulletin, we invite you to join our ranks and receive an uninterrupted news subscription. To apply, simply select the "Abdictate" option under your "Empire" tab and you will be put under a thorough review process.

Are you sick and tired of the lack of technological development of your planet while those imperial bureaucrats live their luxurious lives on those post-industrial worlds? Are you demonstrating against the hard working conditions of your hexacarbide foundry, and at the same time lamenting the fact that your government didn't send a single ship to defend your homeworld and is too cheap to build even a single GDM site?

MESSAGE BEGINS

The leaders of the hoa0004 empire met earlier, and discussed the wise words spoken by Autocracy scholars. They acknowledged that the implementation of special designations known as 'trading hubs' would dramatically increase the efficiency of the empire. Despite opposition from a small percentage of the populace, they have agreed to go ahead with an experiment on a southern cluster to see if these many positive attributes are indeed true.

The only danger now, is the aggressive and barbaric organisms known only to be Tesserect. They will threaten the existence of nearby empires once they learn of the benefits of 'trading hubs'.

Confirmed Autocracy transmitter.
Synchronizing Human Imperium sub space radio

Welcome sentients. I am the official liaison officer for the Emperor of the Human Imperium. First, a brief history of our civilization, then a statement of our goals and relationships.

Our civilization arrived in this galaxy 27 cycles ago after a long and dangerous journey. Only the Emperor made the trip in person, suspended in cryo-sleep. The rest of our citizens, were stored as embryos, with the first generation being raised by machines. Our ship was damaged along the way, and we have only the fractured memory banks of the ships computer, as well as the Emperors faded memories to piece together the fate of our previous home.

Legend has it that our previous galaxy was torn asunder by war. Planets reduced to depopulated wastelands, incapable of even feeding themselves. Fleets of millions of Gorgos laying waste to entire star systems. Terrible weapons that tore asunder the very fabric of spacetime, rendering glitches in reality or "bugs" that made interstellar empires impossible to maintain. Supposedly even time itself was damaged by the forces unleashed, with long dead empires and fleets superimposed on each other. Our scholars determined that this would eventually cause the galaxy to collapse into a black hole. The Human Imperium, as well as several other empires, sent out colony ships for a new home.

Amazingly, this is not the first time that this has happened. We don't know if anyone in the other galaxies still exists. We only know that we must not repeat their mistakes.

The Human Imperium is comprised, unsurprizingly, of Humans. Sentient aliens on conquered worlds are peacefully relocated. The Imperium trades and works amoungst itself, as well as other human empires. However we respect the soverignty of all alien empires.

The imperium currently has ad hoc agreements with the other major powers to respect mutual borders. We have settled our corner of the galaxy, and wish to prosper in peace. Our neighbors are free to expand up to our borders, and we will take no offence.

Finally, I know that many empires have been able to bio-engineer psychics, and employ them as seerers and advisors. Recently, many of your court advisors may be having horrible dreams where the Human Imperium conquers the other human empires, and grinds the alien races into dogfood. Be rest assured that this is malicious slander created by rebellious elements within our empire using electronic methods to implant ideas into dimensional manifold space, where psychics and other sensitives can pick up on them.

end transmission.

MESSAGE BEGINS

In the last cycle, war has broken out between hoa0004 and The Tesserect forces. The Tesserect initiated the battle with the annexing of a sector capital and several foundations. Hoa0004, immediately began a counter-attack destroying many of their resource worlds and launching a hostile sector capital into civil war.

However, this war was over in less than a period. The Tesserect said that "the invasion was attempted assimilation...and now [you] have the respect of the Tesserect."

Imperial scholars believe that peace and a possible alliance can now be reached with this once mysterious and feared empire.

Greetings in the name of the Autocracy of Order! Observe this transmission with your sensory system of choice, of your own free will. Failure to comply may result in sudden orbital bombardment.

This extraordinary edition of the Autocracy of Order Propaganda-News Bulletin will now begin. Following the glorious path of the servants of Order many empires across the galaxy have begun transmitting messages supporting their cause. While most of these have been crude attempts at cynical manipulation from nebula dwelling savages, there has been some good news that all civilized people can take joy in from the war-torn Utter North East.

The leaders of The Great hoa0004 wisely chose to use their first pan-galactic transmission to affirm their desire to join the ranks of civilization and announced the construction of their first experimental trade cluster in the South of their holdings. They warned that the only thing threatening their bright future were the mysterious Tesserect. They were soon proved doubly wise when their prediction was confirmed and Tesserect forces crossed the Great Nebula in a sneak invasion only to be repulsed, proving once more that one civilized sentient is worth ten mesh-trade barbarians, however young that spark of Order may be in their hearts and minds.

Unexpected diplomats from the Tesserect have confirmed to the Autocracy that The Great hoa0004's victory was indeed crushing and that they are now to be considered The Great hoa0004's vassal-allies. Rumours abound that the Hexacarbide Brotherhood had a hand in brokering this new peace. Still, with a war ended and two empires on the cusp of achieving true civilization joining together in political union, this has been an excellent time-period for the cause of Order.

**TRANSMITTER_ID: Directorate of Public Order, Emdief Union**
***MESSAGE_SUBJECT: State of the Union Proclamation, Cycle 4119***
**USER_ID: Secretary Winston Jung**

Citizens of the Union,

It is with pride that I deliver to you the first state of the Union proclamation. It has been more than four thousand years since the Empire fell and centuries since civilization in the sector was washed away by the insectoid tide, but at last civilization has returned to our neighborhood. Though our nation has only just ventured beyond our borders for the first time, already three worlds have been cleansed of the bugs, and over three billion ferals on three separate worlds reeducated and returned to an ordered society.

Our achievements have not solely been martial. We have rebuilt three worlds from post-apocalyptic barbarism to merely primitive levels of infrastructure. Our economic efficiency has increased by over 55%, with stockpiles of hexacarbide and trillium acquired that will not be fully processed for many decades to come. Reactionary uprisings have been quelled and order reigns in the colonies.

One must not forget, however, that we live in dangerous times. The insectoid menace may have abandoned most of the worlds in our vicinity, but the five most habitable in our sector remain inhabited - the swarm is unknowably vast, and we must be sure we can weather the storm before these vital worlds can be reclaimed. Contact has also been made with an unknown force called the Hands - though friendly, they are doubtlessly more advanced and resourced than ourselves. Caution shall be the byword of our foreign policy, but the Union must meet its manifest destiny of reuniting our sector.

Your Union thanks you for your labours.

**END_TRANSMISSION**

EDIT: Disregard this, restarted. Leaving it up because it's good characterization of the New Emdief Union though.

**SOURCE: World of Pacem, New Holy Roman Catholic Church, Pax Protectorate**
**MESSAGE: Proclamation of Sovereignty, Cycle 4150**

Greetings in the name of the Pax protectorate!

Over the past few cycles, our leaders have migrated to a new corner of the galaxy after the most unfortunate defeat of our former government the Imperium Ascendant at the hands of the Union of Free Worlds.

We respect their military fortitude and strength of arms, even more so their tactical cunning and ruthlessness. But we do not wish vengeance upon them, or to invite further conflict. Our only desire is to live in peace with all other sentient life in the galaxy. Even the name of our capital world, "Pacem", reflects this ideology, translating to "peace" in the Old Earth language known as Latin.

We have deliberately selected an area of space far away from the major militant powers of the galaxy in which to forge our new dominion. There are countless independent worlds surrounding our capital, thus there should be no conflict of interest with any other empires, including the UFW.

Our new military and spiritual leader (replacing the Imperator Augustus) is the Pope Julius VI; who with the power invested in Him by the Holy See, has declared a new holy crusade into the stars. We will unify the independent worlds around Pacem under our protection and bring the light of the New Sacraments to their people. Our predecessor the Imperium was bent on the military conquest and domination of its neighbour empires. Our people have found enlightenment in faith instead and only wish to share this enlightenment with the rest of the universe... Deus vult!
