"All of the nations to the west of us claim that they are more prosperous than us. They are merely nationalist republics who are no where near as powerful as the nations with a single, undisputed authority controlling them. The monarchy attempted to mimick nations like this, but it failed to meet the means of lower class citizens and treated them as if they were vermin on the streets. That is why I ousted the royal family and destroyed the palace of the bourgeousies. I plan on ensuring that you, my people, that bourgeousies will never enter the political spotlight again for as long as this empire lasts. You have my word."
- Erasmus Jordan's first speech to the Haisi people
