Sichuan (customized map from ShadowHelix)


Sichuan is a state in divided China. It is a militaristic, magocratic warlord state located in central China.


Its leader, General Liang shot to fame defending the territory from the Canton Confederation in 2042. He was promptly promoted by the military to General and staged a coup. By 2044 he had marched on the capital of Chengdu and installed himself as leader. Under the leadership of Liang, Sichuan conquered parts of the former provinces of Shaanxi, Hubei, Guizhou, Yunnan, and Gansu.[1][2][3]


Run by a "General" - the title is honourary but people still refer to him as General. Although it has elections, a legislature, and a judicial system and calls itself a Republic, Liang runs the place autocratically with Lung's support.


It is a state in which the Awakened are favored over the non-magical. When a magician or adept takes a civil service entrance exams or promotion test, they are given bonus points. The un-Awakened are informally barred from holding higher ranking positions in the local government, these are reserved for magic users. The Ministers, Chiefs of Staff, and Secretaries of most of the major state ministries are either adepts or magicians. Likewise when it comes to the commanders of the major army divisions.[4]


It is the largest Chinese successor state when it comes to the size of its territory. Law enforcement in Sichuan is handled by a separate branch of the army. Regional garrison commanders have the authority to override the policies, decisions, or actions of their civilian counterparts.[5]


Sichuan which used to be a war-torn region has been transformed under the reign of General Liang. It is now an economic powerhouse in China, one whose economic strength is comparable to that of the Canton Confederation.[1] They inherited the lion's share of China's nuclear processing and research infrastructure.[6]


The military strength of Sichuan is comparable to that of the Canton Confederation.[1] It possesses one of the most powerful armies in China.[5] Sichuan along with the Canton Confederation, the Kingdom of Shaanxi, and the People's Republic of Henan, inherited the nuclear weapons of the People's Republic of China.[6]

Sixth World in SichuanEdit


Though things were not all roses for metahumans when they appeared in China (e.g. parents abandoning ork and troll children), due to cultural factors the Han Chinese were more easily able to accept the emergence of metahumans than people in Japan, India, the Middle East, or some of the more conservative regions and nations in the West (e.g. the Confederation of American States or Spain). The treatment of metahumans is generally likewise better than in most of the world, especially compared to the CAS, Japan, or the Middle East. This is reflected in the Chinese megacorp Wuxing, Inc., their criminal syndicates (Triads), and in both Daoism and Buddhism.[7][8][9][10][11]


Magic was embraced by the Chinese relatively easily due to Daoism and Buddhism, and therefore its reintegration into Chinese society was far easier than it was in the Islamic nations or in most of the Catholic world. The Awakened are favored in Chinese society and the use of magic in society is greater than in the West as demonstrated by Wuxing, Inc., the city of Hong Kong, the Triads, or Sichuan itself.[12][13][14][15][16]
