One can only wonder why the shadow cabinet thinks it a good idea to agree with everything the government puts out. How can you style yourself an opposition if you don't oppose the government's plans.

Sir, while we are expected to oppose most of the government's plans, it would be unwise to oppose all of the government's plans. Besides, the NLP holds a simple majority in the Diet and would probably pass most of the things that it wants, and I don't see anything wrong with this budget plan anyways.

From the Office of the Minister of the Army and the Navy, Chief of the Army General Staff, and Chief of the Navy General Staff:

Navy recruitment

5 Men-o-War
5 Frigates
20 Commerce Raiders
Nth Steamer Transports (replace every sail transport; decommission old ships upon the completion of a new replacement).

Army recruitment

1 artillery brigade for every corps (8 artillery brigades).

Japanese Identification Act said:
Japanese Identification Act

The purpose of this act is to strengthen Japanese identity and culture.

1. All persons not born in Japan and whose ancestry is not sufficiently Japanese shall be monitored by the Imperial government in order to prevent unruly and unlawful behavior.
a. In order to be qualified as "sufficiently Japanese" a person must be born in Japan, have parents who were born in Japan, and have parents who are "sufficiently Japanese."
b. Sufficiently Japanese persons must also be able to speak Japanese
c. Persons of Ainu descent shall be separated legally from those who are sufficiently Japanese, but shall not be subject to the same rules as non-Japanese.

2. Persons who do not qualify as "sufficiently Japanese" must carry a "Certificate of Allowance."
a. A certificate of allowance must state: a) The name of the owner. b) Their birthdate, nationality, and place of birth. c) The names and places of birth of their parents and grandparents. d) A brief physical description of the person which must include eye color, hair color, height, weight, and size of head. e) A stamp of approval from both the Department of Identification and Minister of the Interior.
b. If a person who is neither sufficiently Japanese nor Ainu is not possessing their certificate of allowance then they will be subject to punishment which is described in Section 3.

3. The punishment for not possessing a certificate of allowance shall be administered by a newly created "Department of Identification."
a. The Department of Identification shall be headed by the Minster of the Interior. A Secretary of Identification shall serve as the deputy of the department and may be appointed and removed by the Minister of the Interior at any time.
b. The Secretary of Identification shall be responsible for appointing all civil servants in the Department of Identification. The Secretary of Identification shall stamp all certificates of allowance they deem fit and then once a certificate is stamped then it must be given to the Minister of Interior who will either stamp it with approval or deny it.
c. All employees in the Department of Identification including the Secretary of Identification must be sufficiently Japanese.
d. The Department of Identification will have an office in each region of Japan as defined by law. Persons who are not sufficiently Japanese nor Ainu must visit the office in their region and apply for a certificate.
e. The Department of Identification shall operate using money provided to them from the Imperial government. New applicants shall give their name, place of birth, nationality, place of birth and nationality of parents and grandparents, and a brief physical description which must include eye color, hair color, height, weight, and size of head. If the Department of Identification finds that the applicant does indeed qualify as neither sufficiently Japanese nor Ainu then the Application wing of the Department shall stamp the application. The Application wing of the Department of Identification is responsible for identifying if applicants are neither sufficiently Japanese nor Ainu.
f. Stamped applications must then be turned into the Language wing of the Department. The Language wing shall then put the applicant through two tests of their ability and knowledge of the Japanese language. The first test shall be a verbal test where applicants must be able to hold a conversation in Japanese. If they pass the first verbal test then they shall take another verbal test where they must be able to show they can hold a conversation in Japanese. If an applicant passes the test than the Language wing shall stamp their application.
g. Applications stamped by both the Language wings and Application Wings of the Department of Identification shall then be turned into the Culture wing of the Department of Identification. The Culture wing shall first put the applicants through a verbal language test again. If they pass they then the Culture wing shall produce several traditional Japanese songs. The applicants must identify the names of all songs in order to pass. Once the song test is passed then the applicants must recite at least three traditional Japanese stories to the Culture wing. If three traditional Japanese stories, as defined by the Culture wing of the Department of Identification are recited correctly then the applicant must take an oral test where 20 questions are asked about basic Japanese history. If at least 19 of the 20 questions administered verbally by the Culture wing are answered correctly by the applicants then the Culture wing shall stamp the application with approval.
h. Stamped applications will be sent the Headquarters of the Secretary of Identification which are located in Kyoto. The Secretary of Identification may ask applicants to come in for personal interviews. If the Secretary of Identification stamps the application with approval then the Minster of the Interior may also ask applicants to come in for a personal interview.

4. Persons who are neither sufficiently Japanese nor Ainu and are not in possession of a certificate of allowance may be deported by the Department of Identification.
a. If a person who is neither sufficiently Japanese nor Ainu commit a crime, regardless of whether or not they are in possession of a certificate of allowance, will be deported to any country which is not Japan immediately by any means necessary.
b. The Department of Identification may instead execute people who have committed a crime and is neither sufficiently Japanese nor Ainu if the Department deems it serious enough.

5. Persons who qualify as Ainu must go to their regional office of the Department of Identification and request a "Certificate of Ainu Ancestry."

b. Ainu found not possessing a certificate of Ainu ancestry may be subject to several months in prison.
c. A certificate of Ainu ancestry must include a) name of owner. b) name of Ainu parent. c) a brief physical description which must include eye color, hair color, weight, and height. d) A stamp of approval from the Department of Identification.

JUDICIAL AND PENAL CODE
司法と刑法
Shihō to Keihō
-1864-

Preface.
Resolved, that the Empire of Japan, in its capacity as the ultimate ruling body of all islands east of China, should require a set of codes formally instituting and designating those systems by which the judges of the Empire shall fulfill the obligations of their office in accordance with the will of the collective will of the Empire. Holding therefore, this resolution, the immediate intention of Japan should be first-and-foremost to the formalization of a judiciary.

Section I.
Art. I - The judiciary of the Empire of Japan shall be composed of two wholly different branches of law, which shall both be held directly responsible to the Emperor of Japan in his authority, to derive their authority to administer those sentences and resolutions necessary on account of the Imperial will to administer justice and institute accountability for the actions of the unenlightened. The two branches of the judiciary shall be
a. The Civil Court System, which shall be composed of two courts of original jurisdiction and two appellate courts. Decisions by these courts shall be made in accordance with any precedents set beforehand. For all cases in which the conflict is purely between equal citizens, the case shall be heard in a Prefectural Court, with all cases involving zaibatsu being heard before a National Financial Court. Appeals beyond this point may first be heard by the National Court of Appeals, and should that decision be appealed, before the Imperial Court of Appeals. Should the Emperor of Japan wish, he may himself administer a pardon or issue an opinion in regard to an appeal;
b. The Criminal Court System, which shall itself be composed of one court of original jurisdiction, with two appellate courts. The lowest level shall be the Prefectural Criminal Court. Appeals after this point will first be made to the National Court of Justice, with successive appeals going before the Imperial Court of Justice. Judicial opinions should be made with the aid of the Japanese Penal Code (see §2). As with the Civil Court System, the Criminal Court System shall be open to final ruling by appeal to the Emperor of Japan;
Art. II - Justices of appellate courts shall always be appointed by the Emperor of Japan upon the recommendation of his Privy Council. All appointed justices, in this regard, shall serve indefinite sentences, with only a 2/3 majority of the Diet or the declaration by the Emperor being in-itself cause for forced resignation. All other justices shall be elected by voting residents of their prefecture.

Art. III - All Japanese individuals shall be ensured the right to a public trial, freedom from cruel and unusual punishment, and possession of the writ of habeas corpus.

Section II.
Art. I - The Japanese Penal Code, as attached, shall form the basis for all rulings in regard to criminal cases presented before the judiciary. Any judge who is found to have made a ruling in plain contradiction of the Penal Code shall himself be penalized the equivalency of the true fine, tenfold. Rulings in cases of common law shall not be assumed to hold any impact upon the Japanese Penal Code, and vice-versa.


((Please keep in mind that all references to France or French institutions of government in this code should be considered switched out with Japanese alternatives.))

(Not that it matters for the vote, but Revan doesn't get a bonus from being War Minister, given he's a Militarist and not a Politician. Or am I mistaken?)

((I must rest, school starts early you know :p. I leave you with a story revolving around an American who shall become crucial to the plot. Expect his story as well as the update tomorrow.))

Captain Nathan Algren was sitting at a round table. At one end of the table was Hosokawa Mitsuhide, the Minister of Foreign Affairs for the Meiji Government. At the other was Colonel Bagley, and American Colonel and Algren's superior.

"We will offer you one-hundred American dollars per month you are in Japan, training our troops." said Hosokawa Mitsuhide.

"The Meiji Government is offering a lot of cash to men who are able to train their new armies." said the Colonel.

"Date Munenari wants his soldiers in top shape, and his Imperial Majesty wants his army to stand against any instability." interrupted Hosokawa.

Nathan Algren sat there for a moment. "Five-hundred".

The other men stood there taken back by the money request.

"How many other "Nanban" do you have coming to Japan?" asked Algren. The two men sat their confused, and Algren simply started laughing...

Ichiro breathed in the ocean air as he stared across the dark horizon. He was making another nighttime voyage, this time into Nippon instead of away from it. Soon he would honor his brother's sacrifice and the family name.

The samurai fidgeted nervously on the boats. They were eager for combat, even death. They all knew the odds were stacked against them. But they had to make one last attempt to free Nippon. They could not stand idly by while Nippon fell to the nanban-loving desecrators. Soon, their culture would be destroyed.

Serving the Korean regent proved to be profitable, but none of the samurai felt truly comfortable serving a foreign master. Luckily, Heungseon Daewongun supported their mission. He may have been a slightly barbaric foreigner but the regent was also a friend of tradition and an enemy to the European nanban.

They would return home to die, whether peacefully in a nanban-free Nippon thirty years later or on the battlefield in two weeks. Either way it would be an honorable death. After all, they were samurai.
