Hai Men TSP EXPO 2022

Welcome one and all to the 2022 TSP Expo!


Expo, otherwise known as the worlds fair or the Universal exhibition, is a major international exhibition to showcase the achievements, discoveries and developments of nations. While the Expo would typically run between three and six months IRL, but Im planning to have this go on until the end of the year.

These expos encompass universal themes that affect human experience,so international and corporate participants are required to adhere to the theme in their representations and booths. Expos would also have most outstanding or memorable structure competitions.

TSPEXPO 2022


(Venue, Hai Men Expo building)
Im planning this to be a showcase of the roleplayer nations in TSP that’s separated from the facts subforum. The idea is so that every current and newer players would have an idea on the identities and culture of countries in TSP as well as serve as a guide for worldbuilding.

Each country would be allowed to register a maximum of 6 exhibits that represent their country. You can specialize in your culture, your industry, your military or a mix of many. Whatever facets of worldbuilding that you’d like to showcase would detail the nation you’ve written about. The boxes would be used to divide each exhibit, similar to a poster.

When everyone has posted their exhibits, there will be voting on who has the most creative, the most exciting, and the most original exhibition, which will be tallied up by me.

The theme of the expo is: “Progress and Harmony for Mankind”

[align=center]Explorers of The Market
Elena Di Franci, Professor of Merchant History at the University of Lombardi[/align]


“By day it is filled with boat traffic - water buses, delivery boats, gondolas - if something floats and it’s in the Pazar, it moves along the Fluss. And by daylight it is one of the glories of the Earth."


These are the words that describe the naval beauty of the Pazar Am Fluss, the market empire of The South Pacific. Where for centuries the ships are laden with gleaming and shining jewels, gold and spices from the edge of the world. Yet the merchants of the market republic would fight through typhoons and brave through winds to ensure the connection of the world centered in the jewel of the region.


Since the 9th century the Market Republic housed amongst the bravest explorers and the most skilful shipbuilders to accommodate the most famous merchants of the region. In its earliest the market republic prospered on the salt trade, which grew to the dominance of trade between continents and regions of the world. For centuries the merchant republic became home to the extremely wealthy merchant class, members of the world’s society that patronised art and architecture.


One of the most famous of these merchants is Marco Marcello, he learned the mercantile trade from his father and uncle, who travelled through continents. His exploits began on the epic journey to Bailtem, and began the the first major silk and gold trade of the region.

[align=center]Art of Glass
Mazzanti Glassmaker Consortium[/align]


A solid that’s filled with air, an item that can encapsulate the atmosphere itself. The humble glass comes from years of development, 6000 years long before humans discovered the smelting of iron. Although its transparency was rare due to its impurities and imperfections, it became a sign of power and high class. Its application in domestic, funerary and industrial forms are prevalent.


Among the finest glassmakers are those of The Market republic, which caught the usage not only for its architectural marvels, but as a commodity for trade. Glass was sought after for trade by far away merchants, who viewed the interest of touching the air, how could a solid be transparent? The fascination was fashionable, one that attracted many to the craft.


The Market Republic became a centre for glass making, building on medieval techniques to produce colorful ornamental pieces in large quantities. The highlight of glassmaking came from the glassmaker Roberto Mazzanti, who developed exceptionally clear colourless glass dubbed the “cristallo”, and its resemblance to natural crystal that paved the way for windows, mirrors, ship lanterns and lenses. Kicking a new era of innovation.

Nation: Kingdom of Stoinia

Exhibit 1: Hora Unirii

Hora Unirii - The Union Dance
Culture & Art
The Stoinian National Museum of Arts & the Stoinian National Folklore Assemble


Hora Unirii by the famous painter Arsenie Petrescu.

Hora Unirii is a special Stoinian folkloric dance with strong roots in Tarnian culture that is danced on Union Day. Union Day celebrates the reunification of all Stoinian peoples by Voievod Alexndru I Cuza and thus creating the Stoinian Kingdom after centuries of infighting. Specifically, this historic moment is commemorated by dancing the same dance that filled the Stoinian city of Târneava where the union was declared. Ever since 1.222 CE, each year on every market of each Stoinian city, all Stoinians gather together to dance the Hora Unirii on Union Day.
The dance is a typical Tarnian circle dance where the dancers hold each other’s hands as the circle spins, usually counterclockwise. Each participant follows a sequence of three steps forward and one step back. The dance is also usually accompanied by musical instruments such as the cymbalom, accordion, violin, viola, double bass, saxophone, trumpet or the pan pipes alongside the lyrics of the song.
The dance symbolizes how the Stoinians overcame their fear of one another and helped rekindle all Stoinian fiefs and subcultures into the modern Stoinia. To many Stoinians Hora Unirii is a timeless part of their culture with a clear message for tolerance. At the TSP EXPO, the original painting of the Hora Unirii by painter Arsenie Petrescu will installed and the Stoinian National Folklore Ensemble will perform a large Hora Unirii with any bystanders welcome to join in.

Exhibit 2: Siriu Pottery

Siriu Pottery Workshop & Shop
Art
Royal Stoinian Pottery Association


A selection of Stoinian pottery in a shop.

While most Stoinia has become a keen innovator in aerospace, it still holds tightly to its roots and traditions. One of these traditions is the artisan making of pottery with colourful Stoinian patterns. The Stoinian pot-makers from the Siriu region are most renowned for their craftsmanship that has now become renowned throughout the world. While clay pottery has been used in Bailtem from well before the Mediterranean classical era, few civilizations have matched the artistry of the Siriu region. Through the usage of a unique clay only found in the Siriu region and careful carving, a first baseline of any pottery is molded. Afterwards, the object receives a paint-job colouring the brown clay into joyful Stoinian patterns and emblems through unparalleled detailing.
At the TSP EXPO, Siriu pot-makers will hold multiple pottery workshops to give any passer-by’s the chance to get a real feel of the hard work that goes into making these unique souvenirs. In addition a shop will also be present with a wide assortment of pottery ranging from dishes to jugs to hold spirits or beer.

Exhibit 3: Varcathian Zimbron Exhibition

Varcathian Zimbron Repopulation Exhibition
History
The Bailtemmic Association for Zimbron Preservation


A Zinbron herd with calves in Siriu Nature Reserve, Stoinia.

Many forget that once the Bailtemmic Zimbron roamed across the many forests of the continent. This large herbivore was especially prevalent around the Mediterranean and has become a symbol to many nations in southern Bailtem. Though this majestic bovine was sometimes revered, it wasn’t spared from the effects of unethical hunting and habitation loss. It s endangerment went to such an extent that only 52 wild Zimbrons of the Varcathian-Limmvasd mountain ranges lived on Stoinian soil in 1895. Following this revelation, King Traian II decreed the protection of this national symbol and vowed that Stoinia shall preserve the Varcathian-Limmvasd Zimbron. Thanks to the enormous preservation efforts with both domestic and foreign partners, the remaining 52 Zimbrons in 1895 have become today’s 64.000 wild Zimbrons living on Stoinian soil as well as 128.000 on private farms.
With the TSP EXPO, Stoinia would like to once more celebrate this historic achievement to preserve a native species from near extinction. Showcasing the brutal history of its hunting and celebrating its harmonious existence through a unique and interactive exhibition.

Exhibit 4: Orthodox Iconography

Stoinian Orthodox Iconography Shop
Religion & Art
The Stoinian Orthodox Church


A set of Stoinian Orthodox Iconography.

Religion lies at the heart of Stoinian culture. One simply cannot exist without the other. One of the most important symbols of Stoinian Orthodoxy is its iconography. Many monks and artists go through great lengths to make these unique works of art that have become widespread across Stoinia. In nearly every household, at least on of these icons can be found. As the Stoinian people remain deeply religious and spiritual, they still use these icons to help pray. While it should be noted that in adherence to Orthodox liturgy, these are no true depictions of holy figures, they aim to help the prayer focus on their prayer. Hence why the Stoinian Orthodox Church has committed to a signifying style using oil on wood and a unique drawing style.
The Stoinian Orthodox Church will bring several monks to showcase how these icons are made. Alongside them, there will be plenty of icons from which tourists can buy in a shop dedicated to this unique religious Stoinian artistry.

Exhibit 5: Iealea Space Station

Iealea Commercial Space Station Exhibition
Innovation
Stoic Aerospace


Iealea Commercial Space Station in orbit around Pacifica.

While Stoinia clings to its roots, it also isn’t afraid to look towards the future. One such Stoinian was Corneliu Stoica, the founder of Stoic Aerospace. With his private space company, Corneliu built the foundation of Stoinian private aerospace with the Iealea Commercial Space Station standing as its most paramount achievement. While this small space station, consisting of two large, a medium sized and a small modules, may not be the most impressing orbiting space station, it still holds a special place due to the efforts by pioneering companies banding together for a common goal. Built over decades of investments, the space station is set to celebrate its fifth year in orbit. Stoic Aerospace will hold an exhibition of the space station showcasing its goals of botanical space research and small-scale space tourism facilities. While a ticket to the station itself might not be the most affordable option, Stoic Aerospace aims to prove its contribution to opening the final frontier an research.

Exhibit 6: Golden Lion

The Stoinian Lion by artist Tudor Vianu

It’s no secret that Stoinia sees itself as a proud lion on the shores of Bailtem. In honour to that image and the recent engagement on the international geopolitical theater, Stoinia has commissioned a large statue of a gilded lion. Not only will this statue symbolize a new dawn of Stoinian foreign age, but also the richness of Stoinia through its gold mines. For the TSP EXPO, the artist Tudor Vianu will cooperate with Minea Mining Corp. to create this large statue that will form the center of the Stoinian pavilion.

Cheongja unhak sanggam mun maebyeong, the Centrepiece of the exhibition.

“이 청자보다 더 훌륭한 자기를 가져오시면 바꿔 드리겠소.”

Throughout the history of the Crabry Garanians, the Kliegmean land has been home to lively, innovative, and sophisticated art making. Long period of stability have allowed for the establishment of spiritual traditions, and artisan technologies specific to the region. The Gayan dynasty, a kingdom that formed in Kliegme before the formation of the kingdom of Kurigu, was considered to considered to have produced the finest works of ceramics in Kliegmean history. Celadon techniques were first introduced from Huawan; Gayan potters established a native style by the 12th century. One of these native styles is characterized by the sanggam technique, a way of inlaying that was unique to Gayan celadon. The color of the celadon, called bisaek for ‘green’, was also highly admired. The industry arose and declined as the Gayan dynasty developed.

At the TSP EXPO, Pot-makers, masters in the craft of Garanian Porcelain, will showcase both their creations and the relics from the Gayan Dynasty. In addition, a replica of these Porcelain will be sold at a sovuvenir shop.

Exhibit 2: Kliegmean Literature

Category: Art

Государственная Иблиотека(Kliegmean State Library)

[size=90] Kliegmean Literature at the Exhibition Library [/size=90]

"Все счастливые семьи похожи друг на друга,

каждая несчастливая семья несчастлива по-своему."

Kliegmean literature is commonly divided into 2 eras, pre-colonization and post-colonization. Pre-colonization literature was almost purely in Garanian, with Karnetvorian translations showing up after the colonization.

Pre-colonization literature has its roots in traditional folk beliefs and folk tales of the Garanian and Hinomoto people. It is not possible to assign definite dates or authors to most of these works. The stories are generally didactic, emphasizing correct moral conduct, and almost always have happy endings. It also commonly satires the societal issues of the time the stories were written in.

Post-colonization literature adopted many themes from Karnetvor and Alman, with the most prominent influence being from Romanticism. Romanticism permitted a flowering of especially poetic talent. An example being the Poet Aleksandr Irsenovich Ko, who was credited with both crystallizing the literary Kliegme-Garanian language and introducing a new level of artistry to Kliegmean literature . Prose was flourishing as well.

For the TSP EXPO, The Kliegmean State Library uses its collection to create a small library, free of cost.

Exhibit 3: Kliegmean Cuisine

Nation: Federal Republic of Gianatla
NSlink/TSPWiki link: Gianatla on TSPedia

In accordance with the motto of the expo brought forward by the hosts in Hai Men, Gianatla features multiple exhibits showing off the heaps of progress made in Gianatla in recent years and the Gianlucian image of a progressive and harmonic society.
Within the Expo building, the Gianlucians have booked a smaller area for exhibit 1. Exhibits 3 - 5 are located somewhere else, which is why visitors are encouraged to use exhibit 2 to fully experience Gianatla’s presentation.

Exhibit 1: Living green without compromises

Category: Architecture

The problem is not new. The climate is changing worldwide and most countries have agreed on climate action protocols, the most significant recently being the Atlantis Climate Accords from 2015. One big area, in which change worldwide is necessary is how we build future housing, so that building materials can be recycled better, that micro climates are positively altered with it, that buildings become more space and resource efficient in total.
Gianlucian architect Jürgen Kowalske and his wife Emilia are presenting on the Hai Men Expo a fully modular little house on two floors, which features the re-introduction of wood in many places as a buildign material and a new kind of concrete, which can be recycled if the house should ever be demolished. Maybe it doesn’t need to be demolished anytime though, because actually this house can move. Yes, you heard this right. Considering the rising sea levels and the increasing number of heavy rain events, the architects find it necessary, that in the future - to protect precious materials and the wealth of the people - it is necessary to build homes in such a way, that they can be actually get relocated to another area.
Inside the architects took care, that only the latest and most energy efficient machines were built into the home. On the roof they’re naturally solar panels connected to electricity storages inside the house. The garden belonging to the house is designed in such a way, that rain water is used more efficiently within the soil and excess water can be used in the house for heating e.g.
Together with its modern design, this kind of new building, which can soon be found in several new neighbourhoods throughout Gianatla - even in or close to the last remaining rain forests of the country - leaves nothing to be desired.

Exhibit 2: Using existing infrastructure in a renewed way

Category: Infrastructure/Technology

Vehicle-manufacturing startup “Minibus” is creating exactly what you’re thinking right now: Cute electric mini buses, which will connect the Gianlucian exhibit 1 with the rest as well as with the parking area and station near the exhibition site. On pre-determined tracks, partially being real streets, partially being laid out with stripes on the exhibition floor, the almost square-shaped, driverless buses providing space for up to 10 passengers per vehicle show off how far self-driving vehicle technology has come and how safe it already is even if it has to navigate through areas where many people are arbitrarily walking around.

Exhibit 3: Something good to connect over

Category: Food

Gianatla is known especially for less ideal food options, whether we talk about food like burgers, fries, schnitzel or curry or national drinks like cocoa or beer. But they are known for the right reasons for those. As one of the biggest producers and exporters of all of the above products, as inventors of several varieties of them, there is virtually no one, who can say, Gianatla has nothing to offer for their palate.
Gianlucian fast food giant King’s Diner tries to lure people into their portion of the exhibit by offering three special types of burgers exclusively created for the expo. One being a burger with shrimp, another featuring a tofu patty and rice mixed with several spices and one featuring a cheese sauce mixed out of multiple cheeses from all around Pacifica. Visitors can vote at the stand on which of those burgers should be launched in a special promo event throughout the globe in King’s Diner restaurants.

Exhibit 4: Thinking out loud

Category: Culture, Debate, History

Exhibit 4 is always evolving as it is only a stage with 150 seats connected to it for an interested audience. Every day of the expo, Gianatla shows the power and importance of free speech, debates and critical thinking by inviting guest speakers from several countries for several topics including the danger of AI, the oppression of queer people in some countries or the importance of organisations like the World Forum. After a podium discussion lasting between 30 - 90 minutes, spectators are invited to keep the discussion with the guests and moderators going with the goal of everyone developing new thoughts and expanding their horizon in their minds. If no debate is on-going, people are encouraged to develop new ideas by looking at a mix out of modern and historical avantgarde paintings, that have the most critical and most enthusiastic comments from critics stuck around it with post-its.

Exhibit 5: Building friendships

Category: Technology/Gaming

Gianatla is one of the biggest and most important producers and developers of entertainment including games and gaming technology. In the last exhibit everyone is invited to dive into a VR world and talk with other people on the expo and in the living rooms on the other side of the globe, sometimes maybe even playing games or strolling through the virtual halls of a gaming convention taking place in Westtor at the time of the expo. The game “Virtual Chat Hall” by developer Karin Remmers makes this possible. She wants more people to connect more directly worldwide, not only to fight the increasing loneliness in younger generations, but also to dismantling stereotypes still way too prevalent in modern societies.

Hydrogen car of the car manufacturer Trek

The global problem of climate change knows no borders. We not only see it elsewhere but also feel it at home, due to our rainforest climate. Eflad doesn’t only talk about the consequences; we address them. Currently, the largest problem by far is energy sources. Often, the energy needed to supply our households and industries comes from coal, oil, and gas. We are changing that. With a moratorium on deforestation for coal and oil mining, we have successfully preserved 15 thousand hectares of forests, which is 10% of our total surface area. With a booming solar cell and hydrogen network, we are ready for a better tomorrow!

Exhibit 2: Starstuff

Observatory “The Hawk Eye” on Mt. Tlohog

A famous scientist once said, “The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.” Our origins have never interested us more. We, as humans, have always been wanderers, and our glance has always been up, to the stars. Many would say that astronomy and astrophysics have no real use in real life. We beg to differ: the use of astrophysics and astronomy is to understand where we come from, what our building blocks are, and to contemplate our position in this universe. Eflad has always been a pioneer in space science. Join us to explore how the Efladian Space Agency has helped us move humanity forward.

Exhibit 3: Happy Together

Category: Culture, Inclusiveness


What does it mean to be Efladian? This Expo part answers this question. Being Efladian means being a member of the Efladian society. It means to respect others, help them, and make society a better place. Eflad has been through a lot. Global migration is nothing new to us, and Eflad is proud to say that we are leading the battle for inclusion. Without any quotas, we have managed to have almost every minority represented. Statistics have shown that these companies are performing better than those that are not diverse. Come with us and see for yourself how diverse and flourishing Efladian society is and what our goal for the future is.

Although classical music is mostly associated with Sedunn & Stoinia, Sallodesia too holds some hidden gems. Therefore, Sallodesia would like to present the Sallodesian Symphony by composer Nyiko Nakumbani. Nyiko Nakumbani is a composer of Kitonge origin that had to struggle with colonial racism to flourish in music. Having picked up a broken violin at the age of six, the young Nakumbani became obsessed with music as he was taught how to repair & maintain his instrument by a Stoinian Predivarius instrument builder named Dumitru Pascari during his business trip in Kariba. He taught himself music from pieces he received from Pascari. Playing like a virtuoso for pennies on the streets of the city to help support his family. It wouldn’t be long before his talents were picked up by professional musicians and would receive the personal tutelage from the renowned violinist Rylond Pietersen. Eventually making it into Salisbury in 1894 where he began studying as a composer. Composing the Sallodesian Symphony in his final year utilizing musical themes, motifs & rhythms from all the people in Sallodesia. The musical masterpiece was so revolutionizing & beloved by the white elite, that substantial efforts were made to help develop the talents of indigenous Sallodesian people.

The Matakambe have a reputation as honourable warriors who gave Izaakian & Kosbaran colonists a fair challenge in their many conflicts. Most renowned was the reported ability of the Matakambe’s ability to absorb musket bullets with their shields. The famed Ikhaka shield has saved many Matakambe lives during these conflicts and scared the enemies of the Matakambe tribes. Though there are many variants of this type of shield, the Ikhaka & Ikhawa (ceremonial dance variant) have become staples of Matakambe culture. Both in martial & artistic prowess. Such respect is given to this shield, that it has become part of the Sallodesian coat of arms.
The National Museum of Sallodesian History will host an exhibition of these shields, showcasing the craftsmanship of these leather shields. In addition, passers-by will be able to purchase their own Ikhaka or Ikhawa shield in a shop of traditional craftsmen as a decoration for their household.
