Comrades, Imperators, Friends.
We are nearly two months away from the First Anniversary of the Great July Producerist Revolution. During this glorious chapter in our history, the membership of Supernova X overthrew the corrupt prior regime, outlawed the exploitation of our tech producers, and established the Military-First Policy. Equally crucial to our survival as an alliance, we expelled numerous foreign invaders. These invaders sought to enslave our new nations, and force our larger members from this world. Our will and determination expressed by the Never Capitulate! vote carried into the field of battle, where our remaining soldiers fought a heroic last stand against twenty-to-one odds.
This spirit has continued to manifest itself in many wars since that time. During the November Third Operation, we rescued a large cross-section of our members who were lead down the wrong path. In two following wars, we crushed the LPCN terrorist forces. Finally, during the Polar War, we stood our ground against the experienced and well-organized New Polar Order in the first real test of our overall combat capabilities. Our capacity to damage enemy tech production and tech stockpiles is our primary defense against the hostile forces in the world.
We have enjoyed this month of hard-won peace. Unfortunately, Sephiroth's terrorist network and its shadowy supporters are already scheming against the Imperium once more. We have been bombarded with hostile propaganda, and The Rebel has been busted spying on my nation. The wolves are circling, but I am proud to say that our members do not fear such cowards, and are willing to defend our rights to sovereignty, self-determination and existence down to the last man.
The danger in alliances like Supernova X is not our technology or even our actual military power. It is our fanatical devotion to our cause. We see this happen time and time again - nations fighting out of "boredom" will never fight as hard as Imperators fighting for their ideology.
Our ideology... Producerism... is the only ideology in our world today that recognizes the rights of tech producers to be educated and protected against predatory exploitation by the larger powers. It funnels new tech... our key military asset... into friendly hands.
And it makes our Imperium stronger and more united than ever.
