T’au ; Internal & External Government ; Room #A-54


The film played in front of the whole council. The Internal and External governmental body were all sitting transfixed by what they were being showed, a few taking notes while the majority remained muted.

As the movie ended there was a brief silence where the Maunkee took in the knowledge and then they broke into fractured and unorganized small talk, discussing amongst their fellow representatives of what they thought of the whole presentation and the key concepts of the Stellarium.

Chao could tell that the military sectors were dangerously skeptical and suspicious of the whole presentation. These soldiers didn’t see themselves as ‘thrill seekers’ but as a public service demanded by the Greater Good, so to them the whole presentation had been a great stab in their pride. The Greater Good Organization, on the other hand, was perhaps overly enthusiastic about joining the Stellarium more than ever now; many of them were already citing how the Stellarium’s and Maunkee doctrines were similar and such a joining would only boost the expansion of the Greater Good.
The Industrial & Science and Worker’s Union seemed to both agree that it would boost the growth and development of the economy; however the idea of no currency was something which alarmed them due to the Maunkee private sector depending on it for increasing competition for who could develop better equipment. Though there had been no creation of any new firms or businesses as the government had always stepped in and compensated for the few who were on the brink of becoming bankrupt, it was the whole concept which made them shiver in fear.

But the biggest surprise came from the Agricultural Sector. They openly opposed the idea! Chao could hear they were already debating how they would be able to contribute both to military, domestic and now also foreign feeding. Some said that it would spell the death of whole agricultural Sectors as the amount of fertilization they would have to use would kill off the earth. Even the present day’s advanced speed growth and increased chemicals which they used to minimize the damage of everything they did would not be sufficient in the long run (meaning, the next 1’500 years). It would put pressure on the private sector, though without the currency there would be need radical changes as for how to reward the clever and innovative.

The debate which was sparked between the sectors was fierce. The Internal and External governmental body was practically split 59% for and 41% against; neither side denied that the opposite had their logical reasons though the Greater Good doctrine forbade such close percentages from giving the final determination. Chao, who was in Pro-Joining of the Stellarium had to make his move soon.

“Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve spend two days debating and we’re coming to a close on our third day. If we cannot reach a conclusion, we have to follow the percentages but they too are conflicting with achieving the Greater Good.” The Maunkee politicians agreed to that, for they had never went over their three day limit for debating on any subject.
“I propose that we suspend our current debate time for a recess which will be used to draft a counter proposal for the Stellarium, in the mean time, the high representatives of each sector will say whether or not these proposals are suitable for the Maunkee Empire and its people. Dismissed.”

The moment Chao Lin escaped the room he began to rush through how he would get a counter proposal written within a mere hour or two. Something which had to be agreeable, but also convincing enough to get at least 30% of the current anti-joining group over to his side. Well, he wasn’t High Councilor for nothing was he, for as a leader of an Empire you had to prepare for everything.

He opened up the proposal he had ordered written hours before the meeting had taken place. He took the time to briefly read over it and then began adding and subtracting demands and suggestions, that way it would be more open and friendlier when it was presented and (eventually) send off for the Stellarium.

“Demand for autonomy, good. Self-management of military and agricultural production, great. Hmmmm…That’s covered, that’s covered…Seems ready to be presented!” Chao smirked and then saved the document and prepared to present it.
Later that day.


“Ladies and gentlemen, as promised here is the counter proposition for the act of joining the Stellarium. It will be presented as a set of demands and suggestions for how the Maunkee Empire will join, please pay close attention and distinguish between demand and suggested.”

Upon the Maunkee Empire signing a diplomatic, economic, territorial and social joining of the Stellarium, the Internal and External Government has decided upon the following demands to be agreed upon. These demands will remain non-negotiable.

  • The Maunkee Empire will have autonomous rule over its current planets and micromanage their economies and domestic policies.
  • Freedom of Movement through Stellarium territory must be given to all Maunkee citizens.
  • Discrimination of any Maunkee citizen is to be dealt with according to Stellarium law; thus ensuring equality by law.
  • Recruiting of Maunkee soldiers will remain a domestic matter, however if the Stellarium is in need of additional carbon-based soldiers, it will adjust its policies accordingly.

If the Stellarium agrees to these terms, the Maunkee will agree to become a member of its territory and contribute to its vision of a Greater United Universe.

May the Greater Good be with us both.


Chao Lin looked at the audience as they read over these proposals; there was a general agreement amongst the representatives as the Worker’s Union and Agricultural Sector saw the opportunity to easier maneuver around social and economic problems through the autonomous rules while the army was a bit more appeased that they would maintain a sense of independence when it come to their recruiting and training of living soldiers.
The freedom of movement meant that the Industrial and Science departments would have an easier time spreading their technology in a foreign nation in addition to learning what this new nation had to offer.

Overall there was a sense of appeasement from the Internal and External government, there were a few who raised questions regarding certain policies and possibilities which could affect the Maunkee Empire, though it wasn’t hard to convince them that ithad all been thought through.

The voting was quick and easy. 100% for joining the Stellarium, now all Chao Lin would have to send it to ‘Orunn’ of the Stellarium.

To: Orunn, of the Stellarium.
From: High Councilor Chao Lin.

Subject: Stellarium Membership

Dearest Orunn,

The Internal and External government of the Maunkee Empire ahs spend the past thr33 (3) local days debating our course of action in regard for your offer of membership, and if you were to agree on the following proposal the Maunkee Empire will become a part of the Stellarium.

Upon the Maunkee Empire signing a diplomatic, economic, territorial and social joining of the Stellarium, the Internal and External Government has decided upon the following demands to be agreed upon. These demands will remain non-negotiable.

  • The Maunkee Empire will have autonomous rule over its current planets and micromanage their economies and domestic policies.
  • Freedom of Movement through Stellarium territory must be given to all Maunkee citizens.
  • Discrimination of any Maunkee citizen is to be dealt with according to Stellarium law; thus ensuring equality by law.
  • Recruiting of Maunkee soldiers will remain a domestic matter, however if the Stellarium is in need of additional carbon-based soldiers, it will adjust its policies accordingly.

If the Stellarium agrees to these terms, the Maunkee will agree to become a member of its territory and contribute to its vision of a Greater United Universe.

May the Greater Good be with us both.


Minor and much more specific agreements can always be negotiated on a later date. Additionally, I feel obligated to warn you that while the government is very keen on joining, it will take at least a decade for us to introduce your presence to our citizens and encourage them to travel outside of the current Maunkee borders.

All of these procedures are needed as a sudden shift in government can lead to an unneeded rise in nationalism and social unrest.
As we share an almost identical ideology, it is under out beliefs that we shall not have any ideological conflicts between our two great galactic nations.

Looking forward to hear from you.

Sincerely from,
~High Councilor Chao Lin
