Government

A Brief History

Tian Xia has been in existence as a continuous entity for approximately the last 1000 years. It’s gone through 7 dynasties, with the usual route of change being a noble revolting against the current emperor (Huang Di), and succeeding, demonstrating that the previous dynasty had lost the “Mandate of Heaven”. One of the dynasties was a short lived one that resulted from a successful invasion by a barbarian tribe. Another was a result of usurpation by the Grand Vizier.

In recent history, Tian Xia went into an isolationist phase as a result of a series of wars with its neighbors in the early 1600s. In the early 1700s, Tian Xia was involved in another series of wars with its neighbors and became imperialist, eventually conquering most of them. It then expanded overseas, conquering several overseas possessions. In 1815, a rogue duke attacked Cascadia, in a bid to gain more power. This failed spectacularly, with most of his force ending up dead on the field of battle. Apparently the duke believed it was better to beg forgiveness than to ask for permission. Such a strategy only works when you succeed. As a result of this failure, the nobility was stripped of their monopoly on command of military units.

This was the rise of the citizen class, which would eventually end up receiving its own house in the legislature. Citizenship requires service to the state. Most common way now is through public works projects (replanting forests, building trails, etc). Second most common is through military service.

Organization

Tian Xia is ruled by the Hui dynasty. The current Huang Di (Emperor) took the reign name Beowulf on his ascension to the throne. He is assisted by the legislature known as the National Assembly. Judicially, he is helped by a large court system. The Huang Di remains an autocrat, able to override any decision made by the other two branches. The only restrictions are those that he places upon himself. He is the titular head of the armed forces, but has no military rank. The Huang Di appoints governors for the various provinces, which are given a significant amount of authority.

The National Assembly was split in 1815 into two houses. They are a self-organized group, which has no real power, but can give recommendations to the Emperor. The House of Lords consists entirely of nobility. It was formerly the only component of the National Assembly. The House of Citizens consists of members of the citizenry, chosen by the citizenry. Each house has its own methods of selecting it’s members. Generally speaking the Lords contains everyone who has not been denied the right to sit in it. The House of Citizens is elected from the population, according to districts. Lords are barred from membership. The Assembly as a whole is led by the Premier, who is chosen by the Huang Di, and traditionally comes from the House of Citizens.

The judiciary is a hierarchical system of four levels. The top is the Huang Di. Below him sits the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court consists of seven members. The next lower step is the Appeals Courts, followed up the various District Courts, which are run by the local Chief Magistrate.

Income for the government comes from two sources. The first is the crown lands, which are properties owned by the Emperor, and provides income to support the Imperial household. The rest of the income is from taxes, of which the principle component is business income taxes. There are no personal income taxes. The actual amount of tax burden is low, but a significant portion is dedicated to defense spending.

The imperial household is contained with in the imperial complex in the Forbidden City (which, despite the name, isn't really forbidden). It consists of the entirely female house staff, and the largely male Emperor's Own Battalion, which has the royal transports and the bodyguards.

The royal transports are a pair of VC-25s, along with VH-53Ks, plus various limos. It is rumored that he uses the members of the house staff as concubines.

Infrastructure

A pervasive fiber optic network provides communications to the entirety of the Tian Xia state. high speed wireless network allows mobile connectivity at higher rates than possible with space based system, while easily allowing the avoidance of over subscription, and making it simple to upgrade the network. These services are provided through heavily regulated companies. The fiber optic network is a monopoly, but wireless has multiple competing companies. Transport is generally through the extensive rail network. There are actually two rail networks, which are separated at most points.

The freight network is built to different standards than the passenger network, due to the requirement for significantly higher speeds on the passenger network, but the freight network must handle much higher loads. Additionally, there is a significant road network, but it's generally for short distance transport of freight, as well as passenger use.

A significant portion of the electrical power is from nuclear reactors, with much of the remaining coming from renewable sources such as wind and hydroelectric. The remainder is generally from quick reacting gas turbines.
