Northern Thailand and Cambodia are democracies. Burma is a monarchy. South Thailand is communist.

Hmm, it's be interesting if Cambodia went monarchist though.

Southern Thailand is a democracy, Northern Thailand and Cambodia are liberal bourgeois states, and Burma is a degenerate monarchy.

Symbology in PCG culture.

Visitors to the PCG will be familiar with symbols and their use within the corporation as a visual shorthand. They might denote a site of scientific, historical or cultural importance, which can often be discerned from the multilingual translations beside them. These have even begun to appear throughout PCG Terra, on all new official signs, and we also use it in a lot of our advertising (the symbology is there if you know what they mean, but most people would be oblivious to it).

Some lesser known Martian symbols have begun appearing in other locations on Earth, left by visitors of the corporation as a travel guide of sorts, and many varied establishments have noticed a sharp upturn in Martian trade since the arrival of these mysterious symbols, with many viewing them as they would a favourable review.

Among them are seen the more well known symbols associated with Martian Tourism, but some are more obscure and might speak to the political situation and any potential dangers in the region, while others are believed to indicate the nature and character/friendliness of the local populace.



Just a bit of cultural fleshing out.

I’ve stayed away from describing the actual symbols, but feel free to co-opt this into any of your narratives where it might fit.

The Kingdom of Burma and the State of Cambodia have signed a mutual-defense pact with Mobius. The Republic of Thailand has not yet made a decision.

Alright! Is NVC going to compete for Mobius as a whole or just itself?


The NVC will be competing just for ourselves, unless Musashi isn't interested in which case we will hold the Mobian banner with bride.

The PCG is looking to provide sponsorship deals to the teams of competing athletes.

We understand that some competing nations do not have established athletics commissions, and so, various Industries within the corporation - Corona Construction, Marina Construction, PCG Mining, PCG Foodwares, etc - have made available funds for athletes from these competing nations, allowing these athletes the financial security to fully prepare for and pursue their athletic goals, ahead of these games (just pm me, ask for/pick a sponsor and they'll fund your athletes in the run up to the games).

Asteria itself, has been approached by the board of Universal Exports (an Asteria based company with strong ties to the corporation through it's founder), to offer the Asterian athletes a similar team-sponsorship deal.


Update:

The team competing for the PCG, though it contains only athletes from PCG Terra, will be sponsored by Phoenix Mining

Furthemore, the corporation is pleased to announce that Corona Construction has agreed a deal to be the official team sponsor of the Oriental Republic at the games.

The deal will see each of the teams athletes paid the corporations average wage of 40k p/a, in addition to the cost of specialised equipment, coaching and conditioning ahead of the games, to ensure each participant is able to perform at their peak and help mark these games with a truly memorable performance. In addition to this, each athlete has been awarded a free Corona vehicle of their own choice.

In related news, Universal Exports has confirmed a similar deal as an Asterian team sponsor. The deal is believed to include a the perk of free use of all UE services, by the athletes, for life.

The corporation would like to make other competing teams aware of the following companies, from which team sponsorship deals are still available (please note that all athletes are still free to pursue other personal endorsements from elsewhere):

Marina Construction (Aqua/Land vehicle construction outfit)
Hywel-Sharpe (Land and Air vehicle construction outfit)
Red Planet (Martian Tourism - family oriented)
AgriCulture (Restaurant Chain - specialises in natural foreign foods) (Edit - now confirmed as the NIC team sponsor)
KASM* (Space vehicles construction outfit - industrial craft division)

* - The corporation does not own KASM (yet), but does operate it's proxy in dealing with NP's looking to establish their own mining fleets. As such, we consider the sponsorship of a national team competing at these games to be a good opportunity to raise KASM's profile within these NP's, and so have made an executive decision to put them forward as an official sponsor to any interested parties (benefits of the deal may include a discount on future KASM vehicles).

Resolution to the Southeast Asian diplomacy attempts;

Burma and Cambodia have signed on to the Mobian-led regional defense pact. The Burmese, brought close by ideological and marriage ties, are close allies of the Pacifican crown, and a member of the galaxy-spanning Pacifican dynastic web. The democratic State of Cambodia, aggravated by Sybian occupation of the north of their country, hopes that the new alliance will deter further invasions.

The TUPC joined the IWA, a Mattibean-led alliance that aims to promote communist ideals across the globe. They nevertheless remain diligent customers of subsidized Pacifican arms and defense systems, but are bolstered by the Mattopian alliance and international socialist camaraderie with both Mattopia and West Africa.

The Republic of Thailand signed two agreements. First, they have signed a pact with Sybus, who has promised to defend them in the event of an attack by their southern socialist neighbor. While the RoT could have gone either way, massive free arms shipments from Sybus ultimately swayed the Northern Thai. Additionally, they have signed onto the Power to the People League, to balance against the growth in communist ideological strength in southeast Asia following South Thailand's ascension into the IWA.

The student-athlete team seeks the sponsorship of AgriCulture. While the Nerran Institute of Culture that is sending the competitors is unable to adequately fund them, they believe that with the aid of AgriCulture's sponsorship they could, while not win, represent the ancient and unique culture of Nerra to the outside world. As a gesture of thanks, the NIC would allow AgriCulture to open up a restaurant on the NIC campus, and additionally, would consider renaming a building after the founder or CEO.

Luke Whitley and the board of AgriCulture would be delighted to sponsor your student athletes. As with the corporations other sponsorship deals, they will receive an annual wage of 40k and we will also cover the cost of specialised equipment, coaching, conditioning etc. We would also be happy to assist in tailoring the ideal diet to each athlete in the run up to these games, which we hope would allow them to perform at their very best.

Furthermore, each will be allowed to eat for free along with one additional adult guest (note, children under-8 eat for free - under-12's for half-price) at any AgriCulture restaurant throughout Sol, for up to ten years (or for life if they were to finish in the medals, but that isn't officially part of the offer).


In other news, the Frasta Entertainment Group has secured exclusive Martian broadcasting rights for the Asterian games, for a fee believed to be in the region of 800m cc. The FEG will broadcast live from the opening ceremony right through to the games conclusion, but will also be available on all three worlds to those with FEG subscriptions.
