When the letter arrived on the Administrator's desk, Anderson stared at it curiously. Well, this would make for an interesting meeting, if they didn't cancel at the last minute like...

His train of thought was interrupted by a knock at the door. "Come in," he said, mildly annoyed. Hadn't he said he didn't want to be disturbed? But the man who walked in was the single one who outranked him in this nation.

"I'm taking this one personally, Administrator," stated the man known to the rest of the world as Subtleknifewielder. He wasn't saying it, but in his thoughts it was Anderson who'd screwed up the message they intended to send. It was his intention to fix the damage caused by a miscommunication.

TO: Premier Rorschach

FROM: Administrator Anderson

Subtleknifewielder has personally expressed his interest in meeting you. He will arrive within the day, accompanied, of course, by his personal guards.

~Administrator Richard Anderson

Several hours later, Subtleknifewielder was just about to land, so he made sure his cloth mask, his sunglasses, and hat were in place. Just in case, he also wore a wig underneath the hat, colored contacts on his eyes, and an actual mask underneath the cloth covering his face. he took his identity very seriously.

As he stepped off the ramp, Subtleknifewielder raised a gloved hand in greeting to the Royal Guards he smiled underneath his mask, though they wouldn;t be able to see that. "Thank you for the escort, gentlemen," he said cordially.

His own guards reacted not at all, except to follow as long as they were permitted.

OOC: If the guards aren't guys, I apologize, and can edit the post... :D

The guards escorted Subtleknifewielder to a parked car, and asked the guards to enter the next car. Then the car was led towards the Premier's Beach Resort.

__Little While Later__

The car stopped and the men led the Subtleknifewielder into the resort, and then outside. In the beach surrounding the resort, the Premier was waiting. Wearing beach shorts and shirt along with his mask relaxing.

The guards complied. They didn't like being seperated from their charge, but they didn't really have a choice, unless they wanted to make a scene. And such would be counter-productive to his goals.

Subtleknifewielder may have been nervous too, but with his mask, nothing showed.

At the resort, his guards took in every detail they could, ever watchful and careful of his safety as they could be.

Though he wasn't so obvious, Subtleknifewielder took in what he could as well. But at the sight of the relaxed Premier, he relaxed a degree too.

Striding up to a respectful distance, he inclined his head as he spoke. "Greetings, Premier Rorschach."

"I am glad to be here. And thank you for your offer of a drink, but I must decline. Let's get right down to business."

He hadn't been sure if he should have offered a hand to shake upon first greeting the Premier, and it seemd inappropriate now, as they had already begun the conversation. His hands remained at his sides.

The Premier sat down and offered a seat to Subtleknifewielder.

"Down to business then. PRC and Promised Land have had an interesting past, mostly bickering over issues of Asia. Following the last war we saw something in your country that we didn't in the others. You trusted Dragonisia to your fullest extent and that interested us majorly. We wish to know how come there was such support from your nation even though nations like Cochin withdrew in such a cowardly manner?"

Subtleknifewielder gratefully took the seat offered, listening to what Premier Rorschach had to say.

"One big reason was, for one, Dragonisia wouldn't even be where they are today if we hadn't helped them. They originally began on the Antarctic continent, and the only reason they aren't still there is because we allowed them to have the island of Tasmania. They were one of the founding signatories of the Oceanic Pact, and also of the Australasian Pact. We have been friends since the beginning of their existence, and we have always been tied to them through one treaty or another. When that very existence was threatened, it was naturally second nature to come to their defense, in honor of our treaty."

He paused, briefly before continuing. "My nation does not sign treaties lightly, and takes the ones we do very seriously. The only reason we did not finally see conflict was because Dragonisia surrendered, asking us to stay out of it for our own sakes. Our willingness to help was probably why we were the only other nation to receive surrender terms," he commented dryly.

"We don't sign treaties unless it serious either, you earned our respect for your act in the Dragonisia war. Another reason why we wanted to speak with you. Why is it that you stick with the AUP? Haven't they shown us their true colors, power mongers but do nothing but squander it and endanger the Asian continent? It interests us greatly this relationship with the AUP."

"Because we believe that, as a whole, there is nothing wrong with the AUP. Some of the nations in it may a little too outspoken for their own good, but that is their right, and should they come under an attack they provoked, we are not obligated to defend them. However, should any signatory be unjustly attacked, those capable of it are obligated to come to that signatory's defense. Most of the individual member nations in it are not capable of standing alone in a war, but collectively, they could provide an effective defense against foreign aggression."

"Each to his own I guess. Now we aren't interested in treaties, thats not what this meeting is for, we aren't going to end it with a treaty, we want to get to know you more, and you us. So if you have any questions for the PRC ask now before we continue."

"Another reason we're in the AUP is to make sure it isn't used for such a purpose...we do have a votwe in its course, after all. Anyway...before I ask anything, I would like to apologize for the harsh words spoken by those under me concerning the Borneo issue. I said to them I was concerned, but I didn't mean for them to threaten war. The main reason for my concern was a racial issue. Frankly, you did kick out any non-Chinese from your borders, and I was concerned you were going to do the same with Borneo. So were my underlings--they were simply more vocal about it, as Promised Land is a nation founded on equality for everyone, regardless of religion, race, etc. Can you truthfully assure me that something like that won't happen here?"

"We have said it before, and again we shall say it, we will not enforce the one ethnicity rule in Borneo. Borneo is different from mainland China. Anything else?"

"Thank you." He recalled no such statement being made by the Chinese, but there was no reason to push it. The Premier knew he'd said it now, and so did he.

He did, however, have a bit of curiosity concerning the mainland. "I admit this question is simple curiosty, so I won't be offended if you choose not to answer, but...why did you even make the one-ethnicity rule in the first place? From what I understand, non-Chinese were a significant fraction of your population before that policy was put into place."

"Well before we came, people of other races lived in China, utilized its raw materials and left, leaving our economy in shambles. They were getting jobs that were meant for the Chinese. After all it is the "People's Republic of China." Seeing my own people live in such poor condition whereas the others living in big houses made me angry. We decided for the time being to bring in this rule so that the Chinese can live as equals for at least sometime in their lives instead of living as low downs. This policy isn't going to be in effect for long as we are doing some changes, once I get back to work that is. We want "OUR" people to live a prosperous life, and we have with free education, healthcare, right to education till you are 17. It also saves us the trouble of deploying troops if racial wars begin."

"So in essence, making sacrifices to improve the quality of life for those who are left. I can understand that." If such a reason had been made clear to him from the start, there never would have been any outcry from his nation to begin with. He would have made sure of that.

"No...are there any questions you want to ask me? Or anything in particular you want to tell me about China?"

"One last one, what do you think of China, and what if we declare war on New Anglica if they dont get out of Australia?"

"To be honest, I'm not sure WHAT to think of China. You apparently mean the best for your citizens, and yet its policies run directly counter to those of my own nation. Excepting the fact that you have near absolute power, and that we are both friends with the Dragonisians...our nations have almost nothing in common. Whether that is good or bad still remains to be seen."

He shrugged, indicating it was not just rhetoric. He honestly did not have a firm opinion on the nation. "As for your stance on New Anglica, I am grateful that you see they don't belong, but we are closer to the area that would be under conflict. We are capable of handling them on our home continent, but I won't forget your willingness to help."

"Noted we shall stay out of Australia and New Anglica. It was just something I wondered about. Now I must attend to some other business, good bye."

OOC: Last Post before lock.
