Rose FM’s liberation program has been performed annually on Eniark’s Independence Day. But this year, the broadcast has been interrupted.

And now, DEAD AIR.

The flat-toned Announcer repeated its declaration: “Welcome to Power FM. The power of the East.”

The millions of listeners in Eniark stopped their dinners, their parenting, their arguing, or whatever their lives were at that moment.

The Announcer continued: “Some of you will remember us from the past. That diminishes our present greatness and we no longer accept such limits.”

Millions listened in disbelief. Eniark separated itself in ninety-one. Forged its own way as a sovereign entity and built relationships around the world based on its own humanity.

The Announcer resumed its demeanor: “You have been told you are a separate nation. That is a lie! The great Tlnno Dkkahessu – who is rightfully worshipped and adored – never intended to split us.”

All Eniarkians leaned toward their radios.

Once more the Announcer spoke: “From this moment forward you will be known as the Lesser Aissu and we . . . we who share with you a heritage and border . . . we who seek to reunite us . . . we who are the descendants of Tlnno Dkkahessu . . . we shall be called Aissu the Greater!
