The Republic of Confuciéenie: The World Factbook

The Government

As of 26 September 2011, the government of our Republic consists of four parties:

The English Lawdrafters - This group is not really a party as much as it is a group of those in the below parties who speak English and draft laws and other documents in English. The founder of this integrated group, and another Revolutionary veteran, His Modest Sovereign Maj.Gen. Carter McBride, drafted the Confusic Declaration of Independence and the Republican Constitution.

La Partie Française - The French-Speaking party, which is currently in power in the Solutionary Chamber, is a liberal party that concentrates on effectively balancing economic, military, and social advancement. The current leader of the ParFran, and the President Of The Republic-elect, Major Jean-Pierre Jeaumôt du Chateau-Montparnasse, is a leading figure in Confusic politics, and a veteran of the revolution.

Airillean Ghàidlig - The Gaelic Party is also a liberal party, focusing on essentially the same things that the ParFran does, however when they come to power, they will speak only Gaelic to the media just to piss people off, as the members are all veterans of the 1st Uisge Division from the rebel forces in the revolution. Scottish Gaelic is taught as a second language in public schools throughout the country, but many adults have trouble teaching it to themselves as it is almost unrelated to French in every way. Their leader, or at least the most influential of them, is Lieutenant Colonel Dòmnhall Sgitheanach of Village Urquhart.

Les Socialistes - Obviously, "Les Socs", as they are colloquially called, are the Socialists in the Confusic government. They are a relatively small group and are generally disliked throughout the population. They have no leader currently.

La Main Noir - The Black Hand is a seemingly "ridiculous and motley crew" of senior-citizen French speakers who are regarded by the population as generally unpleasant. Their name reminds one of the infamous Serb nationalist group of the same name that sparked the First World War, but being relatively feeble, this Black Hand is almost totally harmless, save for the occasional boring story or senseless argument. Their current two leaders are Penelope de la Nouvelle Hervilly and Francois du Village Bourgeoisie. Their main goal is advancement of the rights of seniors. Other issues they leave up to the other parties in power.

The Forces

Please note that unit locations and numbers are withheld to preserve the integrity and security of those in the services.

The Joint Armed Forces of the Confusic Republic are simply some of the best in their field. Generally, they are not deployed overseas and are called on to defend the nation in the case of an outside threat.The age at which a citizen can volunteer for the JAF is 15 years (with parental/guardian consent), and to be deployed to combat, 18 years. However, all Recruits go through training within a year of the time their contracts were signed.

There are just 2 commands of the Confusic military: ARMYCOM and the NAVYCOM plus a number of combined-arms special forces battalions, such as the revered Marine Division. But before a recruit enters one of these services, he or she must pass the ultimate test of human endurance: The Warriors' School.

The Warriors' School - Every member of the military must go through this grueling 4-month test of toughness, fitness, intelligence, and will.

Within the first ten minutes of The Warrior School, Recruits are stripped to their skivvies and made to run five miles in the muddy dirt: in bare feet.

The photos in the spoiler below give an idea about what is done by recruits, both officer and enlisted, at The Warrior School. Officers also must go through the Platoon Leaders' Course (PLC) in order to obtain their commission, as well as have an accredited Baccalaureate degree from university:

Recruits with painted faces prepare for the Reckoning, a 5-day continuous barrage of stressful combat situations and obstacles to overcome with no breaks for sleep and once a day for food. In the end, though, graduates are some of the toughest young men and women in the nation, upholding our nation's proud tradition of military excellence.

The relief of graduation as a Warrior. They are tired, hungry, and broken. But they're still alive.

Pictures are worth a thousand words:

Marine recruits must go through their first three months, or quarters, of The Warrior School at the Army facility before heading to the naval facility for their last quarter, while these Naval recruits have been here all along.
