the states of Chu, Wei, Han, and Xi formed the United Kingdom, 聯合国 in 77 BC. The Constitution of the United Kingdom provided that the Dukes of each of the duchies making up these individual kingdoms shall choose an Archduke, who shall function only in that Kingdom of the dukes. The King of the United Kingdom shall rotate from the Archduke of one country to the next archduke of the next kingdom and this would repeat for every four Kings.

The Dynasty was named the Crimson Dynasty 深红色朝 after the color Crimson which was considered good luck and a sign of trust and faith in the Unity. The Sinican Council became to be made of the Dukes of each Duchy and would draft legislation for the King. Among these was the Crimson Bill of Rights of 678 (75 BC). Among the rights granted was the right of hold private property that could not be seized by the state without just compensation. Another was the right of habeas corpus, or knowing the charges against oneself if accused of a crime.

Despite the pressure to remain independent by some, The Kingdom of Yan joined the United Kingdom in 683 (70 BC).

Mongol Independence from the Japanese Colony

The people of the north of Asia were divided into two distinct ethnic groups, distinct to each other but not to

outsiders. The Tartars, which proved much easier to conquer, were made slaves in many parts of the Japanese colonies of North Asia. The mongols however were a very fearsome people and were more than able to hold their own in the Japanese attempt to colonize them. The area of the Mongols north of a strip of land on the Border of the Kingdom of Bei was still theirs to govern. In the Sino-Japanese War the inventions of the missile and the grenade led to a quick and decisive victory of the mongols, though they still were deeply independent in their attitude and stole the technologies of war made by the Japanese and use those weapons against them.

The Second North Asian War broke out and this ended with the establishment of an autonomous Mongolia which covered the edges of the Japanese Colony with Bei. The Mongols expanded into the interior and were relentless in their campaigns. They did however stop a while before they reached the Pacific Ocean, as they had no experience with naval warfare. The Mongols were recognized by the Japanese and were allowed to govern themselves. In exchange for this peace the Mongols would pay a tribute to the Japanese and allow them passage if they needed to invade Sinica through their land. The Mongols relented to this deal. The western portion of the Japanese Colony was set as the end of the land the Japanese would cede to the new Kingdom of Mongolia 蒙古

The Khmer Party and the Srivijaya Empire

In South East Asia much interest was paid to the commotion and situations developing just north of them.

Japan, which had been doing extensive trade with the disorganized South East Asian people. The Japanese Emperor Sujin, who had taken power after the death of Emperor Koizumi whose reign only lasted from 673-677 (80-76 BC), took the position of attacking the Sinicans from a new angle. The Khmer were a group of imperial dreamers on the island of Sumatra that had immigrated from the Cambodian region of the South East. The Japanese, after taking control of the loosely populated islands of the Philippines, began to fund the Khmer in their attempts to expand to the rest of Indonesia and South East Asia. In exchange for this the Japanese would remain in a sacrosanct alliance and the Khmer would never enter into an alliance with Sinica.

The leader of the Khmer declared himself the Maharajah (Great King or Emperor) of a new Empire. Once the island of Sumatra, with its heavy trade connections, was taken by the Khmer they declared their intentions to the other islands. The Sanskrit words Sri, meaning ‘shining’ or ‘radiant’, and the word Vijaya meaning ‘victory’ came to be the name of the new Srivijaya Empire.

The Islands of Java, Borneo, and Sulawesi fell after a series of rather costly, though Japanese insured, wars and the Srivijaya were preparing to take the Mainland. The preparations though for the invasion took time. From the last conquest by Srivijaya, the Conquest of Borneo, in 684 (69 BC) the Maharajah took ten years to build some industry, many ports, and of course a strong navy which was recognized immediately as being essential to the maintenance of a Maritime Empire of mostly islands and very porous land. But in 695 (58 BC) the Srivijaya would make their first lone conquest without Japanese assistance. The Srivijaya sailed around halfway up the Mekong River and spread outward from there right to the borders of Nan.

The Srivijaya Empire after the fight for the Philippines

The Nanese threatened war if the Srivijaya did not agree to give tribute to their Kingdom. The Japanese forbade the Srivijaya from making any treaty with Sinica but the Maharajah felt that his young Empire would not survive if it was not able to build itself and was instead drive out by conflict it was not ready for. The Japanese moved to take Nan if they did not settle their border with the Srivijaya. The Nanese quickly saw through the tension between the Srivijaya and the Japanese and how the South East Asians were desperate to take an independent stance in the affairs of their country. The Srivijaya and the Japanese entered into their first conflict after the Treaty of Hainan allowed the Srivijaya to have their borders meet the border of Nan.

The First South Asian War between Japan and Srivijaya focused on the Philippine region. The last conflict, the Battle of Luzon, separated the Philippines between the Luzon islands with Japan and the more southern islands belonging to the Srivijaya. The Japanese-Srivijaya alliance had been broken and the two countries developed separately but with some animosity between them. This was the reign of the First Maharajah, Jayanasa who reigned from 678-701 (75-52 BC).

The Song-Tang Commonwealth

The Kingdoms of Song and Tang had gone along very cooperatively since the end of a short War around the end of the Sinican Civil War that resulted in the rise of the several Kingdoms. The Kingdoms, after seeing the example of the United Kingdom, and their Crimson Dynasty, formed a commonwealth which would be more democratic than the UK next door.

Sinica with the Song-Tang Commonwealth in Blue

The Constitution of the Song Tang Commonwealth 唐宋联邦 allowed for the Dukes of the Duchies of these two kingdoms to elect the Viscount of that Kingdom just as the Dukes in the UK elected the Archduke of the Kingdom. The difference came with regard to the head of the government. The Council of the Commonwealth would be made up of dukes and counts from the kingdoms, who were elected or gained power in their own way. This Council would be led in one year by the Viscount of Song and the next Year by that of Tang. The council would draft the legislation but its execution would be the duty of the King of the Commonwealth who would be the Viscount not serving as head of the Council.

The different system of the Commonwealth was examined by Sinican philosophers and started a new examination of the philosophy of politics other than the traditional Confucianism and Legalism schools. Education became a central concern in the UK and the Commonwealth and were developed intensely with the new resources the governments of those countries had with the annexation of the separate treasuries.

The Largest University was made in connection with the largest zoo, for zoological studies, the largest hospital, for the study of medicine, and the largest library, for other stores of knowledge collected and compounded over recent years. This was the University of Chang’an 长安 one of the oldest cities in Sinica. The University was completed in the year 723 (30 BC).

The Khanate of Mongolia

The first Khan of Mongolia took the name Khan, meaning King, in the year 698 (55 BC) five years after Mongols received their Independence from Japan. The first Khans focused on unifying the land they now acquired and developing them to compete with the Sinicans and the Japanese. The First expansion of the original land cut off from the Japanese Colony came from the Great Khan Odval and went northward to reach the edge of the Asian Continent. The Khans afterwards would champion the use of the rich reserves of minerals that were in the Mongolian lands as well as trading them with the other Asian Empires. Some of these Khans built the first true cities north of the Great Wall that were not simply hubs of mines worked by slaves. The Mongols paid their workers and did not grant monopolies to the mines of their country. They soon had money to build the military and technology that they still desired, militarism and violence being a cultural prerogative.

The Khan did not have a country recognized by any of the other Empires of Asia until in 725 (28 BC) Khan Chuluun and King Feibo of Han signed a non-aggression treaty allowing Mongol good to travel through the Great Wall, making them much more accessible to the other Kingdoms. Similar treaties came to the Mongols at the alienation of the Japanese in many cases. The Mongol goods were received with more hospitality than the Japanese who had tried to conquer Sinica earlier. The memory of the Sino-Japanese War was still present in the minds of the Sinicans. The Japanese prepared to take the colony back and eradicate the Mongols but they did not have the military power. The still estranged Srivijaya Empire reconnected with the Japanese, under the Maharajah Susilo and the new Emperor Suinin 垂仁. The preparations had been set for conflict.
