General Yamagata mounted a stage setup outside the headquarters of the National Liberal Party adorned in his dress uniform.

"We have been given a mandate by the people of Japan, and the Emperor, to govern this country. It is an honor, a privilege and a sacred duty we must all swear to give our utmost to. It is before you all today that I give my pledge to use my mandate to restore order to the Empire, to rebuild our military and return the prestige and honor that we lost at the hands of the British and Russians. We cannot allow their actions, and the consequences of such, to dominate the way we think and act; we will rise stronger and we will learn from the mistakes that caused the disasters that led to the deaths of the honorable Prince Date, Marquis Asano and 150,000 brave patriots.

Our greatest task at hand has not changed; it is our duty to liberate the people of Asia and unite them under the banner of the Empire of Japan, for it is our destinies as the children of Amaterasu to accomplish his. The people have affirmed their own beliefs in this and we must stand lockstep together to achieve all of this. Already I have met with many of my brethren in the party and we have discussed and laid out a comprehensive plan of action including the restructuring of our military and state organs to facilitate the goals at hand. I promise that if you grant me your support, your dedication and give your utmost to the Emperor and Japan that we will rise stronger, as a phoenix from the ashes...

But most importantly I give my undying devotion to the Emperor of Japan, our God, the guiding beacon of light, and the originator of our national sovereignty."


At this General Yamagata got onto his knees and facing in the direction of the Imperial Palace he bowed until his head touched the stage, holding for a few moments before rising again.

"Long live the Emperor!"

Court Case #567
Iraksun vs. The Empire of Japan
Sengo Iraksun is a convicted man. Iraksun has been arrested in a case of slander. Iraksun is a staunch pacifist, and was very anti-Date. Following Date Munenari's death, Iraksun published a pamphlet in the region of Kyushu painting Date as a blood thirsty tyrant killed by his own hubris. The NLP officials in the region have arrested Iraksun and have charged him with slander. Iraksun's case has been brought before you, Justice Shimazu. This case has far more societal importance then just a simple court case. This case calls into question "How free is our press?" This case can decide if papers can operate unrestricted and freely, or if they have to be watched by the government for "slanderous" effects.

Option A: We must uphold the constitutionality of free press! While it is immoral to paint legends in a bad light, Date's constitution asked for free press. The government has no role in what the papers print!

Option B: Date was an honorable man! This slander cannot be the norm in Japan. The government must take an active role in managing what comes out of the press in case of slander.

The Constitutional Principles Act - 憲法の原則法
The Imperial Diet resolves:
I. That, allqualified members of the diet or peers of Japan are required by oath to hold loyalty to the Empire, and to "swear loyally to observe the Constitution and the laws of the State and to exercise their functions with the sole goal of the inseparable good of the Emperor and of the Fatherland."
II. That as logically follows, the advocacy of republicanism violates the principle of loyalty to His Imperial Majesty, and the exercise of their functions towards the good of His Imperial Majesty.
III. That as logically follows, the advocacy of radical social change, the likes of which has been propagated by such disreputable persons as Charles Fourier and Robert Owen and other persons thereof, namely that which alters the fundamental monarchial nature of the state, and the establishment thereof violates the principle of loyalty to the Constitution
IV. That therefore, advocates of republicanism, radical social and anarchistical principles, and Freemasonry are ineligible to stand for election or service, or continuing service, for or within the Imperial Diet of the Empire of Japan unless they renounce their beliefs through swearing an oath to His Imperial Majesty and the Empire.

The State of Emergency Act - 救急法の状態
I. His Imperial Majesty may at any time enact a State of Emergency. This may only last for a period of two months.
II. A State of Emergency grants the Prime Minister and his Cabinet additional powers, as outlined in article III.
III. A State of Emergency allows the Prime Minister and his Cabinet to take the following actions in Japan:
1. Temporarily apply censorship to printed press.
2. Arrest individuals on Japanese soil for a maximum period of 48 hours, without providing any statement.
3. Declare general mobilisation.
4. Order policing forces to search individuals or property, if needed, on a random basis.
5. Deny certain or all individuals access to certain public areas.
6. Outlaw gathering in areas outside of public areas.
7. Use army forces as a policing force.
Points 2, 4, and 5 of the first paragraph do not apply to members of the Diet, the Cabinet, or members of nobility and their property.
IV. When State of Emergency for any reason is about to end a vote must be conducted in the Diet on whether or not it was legitimiate.
V. Such a vote as is meant in article IV shall be presented to the Diet as if it were a normal proposal. Should it be approved by both of the houses of the Diet then it is considered legitimate. Were the opposite to happen, the state of State of Emergency is deemed illegitimate.
VI. Should a declaration of State of Emergency be deemed illegitimate, those who have the power to enact it shall be prohibited from enacting it for a period of three months after the end of any ongoing State of Emergency.
VII. If a declaration of State of Emergency is deemed legitimate, the Prime Minister may, in accordance with the will of His Imperial Majesty:
1. End the State of Emergency and reserve his right to call for it at any other time.
2. Initiate a Parliamentary vote to prolong State of Emergency for a maximum period of sixty days.
VIII. A State of Emergency that has already been prolonged in accordance with article VII point 2 may be prolonged indefinitely. However, the Diet must vote on it once every eighty days.
IX. If public security and order are seriously disturbed or endangered within the Empire, the Prime Minister may take measures necessary for their restoration, intervening if need be with the assistance of the armed forces. The Prime Minister must inform the Imperial Diet without delay of all measures taken. These measures are to be revoked on the demand of the Imperial Diet.

Representation Act - 表現法
I. The Imperial Diet acknowledges that the current division of seats proportional to the amount of inhabitants of a region leads to undesirable results, namely the underrepresentation of the Armed Forces, whose ability to defend the Empire is vital for us all, due to the lack of the ability of our brave soldiers abroad and in the overseas territories to vote.
II. Henceforth, the division of seats in the Imperial Diet shall be fixed as such:
1. The prefecture of Tohuku shall be represented in the Imperial Diet by 35 seats.
2. The prefecture of Chubu shall be represented in the Imperial Diet by 77 seats.
3. The prefecture of Kanto shall be represented in the Imperial Diet by 100 seats.
4. The prefecture of Kansai shall be represented in the Imperial Diet by 105 seats.
5. The prefecture of Chugoku shall be represented in the Imperial Diet by 30 seats.
6. The prefecture of Shikoku shall be represented in the Imperial Diet by 18 seats.
7. The prefecture of Kyushu shall be represented in the Imperial Diet by 48 seats.
8. The prefecture of Hokkaido shall be represented in the Imperial Diet by 12 seats.
9. The military shall receive sixty seats in the Diet, to be appointed by the Chief of the General Staff on the advice of the General Staff.
III. The division of seats in the Imperial Diet by region may be altered by a subsequent Act of the Imperial Diet.

Chapter II, Article 29 of our Constitution reads: "Japanese subjects shall, within the limits of law, enjoy the liberty of speech, writing, publication, public meetings and associations." However, the act of libel - printed statements with the intent to dishonor the reputation of others using false information - does not fall within the limits of the law, and has no afforded protections. Thus, it is fully within the rights of the Japanese Government to curtail any and all attempts at misinformation and written defamations.

Mochinori, seeing the flurry of legislation presented that would be sure to be rubberstamped through, stood up in the Diet.

"Noticing the place of the recently tabled legislation, I call into question the government as to why it bothers pretending to legitimise the organisation of opposition parties. If one is to do away with the parliament created by the Boshin War in the name of the Emperor, I beg you to at least do it proper. It offends my sensibilities as to the lack of direct action as expected by military men.

Further, I call into question the lack of social progress within the recent legislation tabled. Should not the children of Japan go to school? Should not Japan have adequate hospitals to service the ill? I call upon the government to right these wrongs and advance Japan into a truly modern state, since any and all legislation not brought up by a member of the National Liberals is no doubt doomed to fail."

The hospitals are more then adequate and the children all go to school. What kind of "social progress" are you calling for that we haven't achived?

Are you saying that there is no possible way in which to better national healthcare and further ensure the education of our youth?

My apologies, Lord Hosokawa, a clerk must have copied the bill wrongly. New copies of the bill are already being circulated to the members of the Imperial Diet.

I propose the following measure to be reviewed by the Diet:

Reform of Old Age Welfare Act

1. All Japanese citizens, which include Koreans but as of now not Filipinos, are entitled to retirement benefits upon reaching retirement age, which shall be discussed in the next point.

2. The retirement age is set at 70 years of age. All citizens who reach this age have the option to retire from the workforce.

3. Retired citizens shall receive retirement pensions, the amount of which is to be determined by the annual income and occupation of the citizen prior to retirement. For example, a farmer would not receive the same amount of pensions as a trained doctor.

4. The pension amount shall at least be enough to pay for the citizen’s basic expenses (food, water, rent, etc.).

5. Retirement pensions may be stacked with military pensions and pensions for serving in the Japanese government. Said military and government pension amounts will be determined by the relevant military/government body.

6. ((Set retirement pension reform to maximum))

I welcome any criticism of this bill.
~Sakamoto

Members of the Imperial Diet,

The Bill proposed by the Hon. Prince Sakamoto is one the New Moderates cannot support. This bill will chain the government of Japan to enourmes expenses it can only pay with harsh taxes, which threathen the economic freedom and incentive of our markets and our people, an unfaltering constant in our policy, no matter the threats and acts of the Imperialists. Thus I ask the Diet to vote against this bill, to protect the incentive and economic freedom of our people and to save future governments from crippeling debts that this bill will undoubtedly force upon them.

The Rt. Hon. Lord Tanabe
MP PC, Second Count of Wayakama
His Imperial Majesty's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs,
Leader of the New Moderates
