We are always trying to keep our residents safe and sound at any cost. We will never be them.

Lewis Schuwls is our founder. He is who opened our minds and provided a solution to our problems. He taught us how to live as a human. How to work with each other not against.
He is why we live now.
His characteristics and abilities:
Lewis Schuwls is trustworthy and breathes for freedom and equality. Schuwls opened our eyes of the corrupt ways of the government. He had the courage to gather and put his life at risk to make a conspiracy against the government. He is gentle and kind to his people. He wants the best of the best for them.
The Story Lewis Schuwls:
Lewis Schuwls knew the government was corrupt when he first learned how to read and write. Ever since in the back of his mind he dreamed of the word freedom. Years passed and Schuwls is now 35 years old. Living in hell. He had enough of seeing people suffer and die a slave. Over the past years Lewis risked his life of gathering up information of the government. He found out their dirty little secrets and was astonished and why no one has said anything or done anything at all. The people were scared! But Lewis was brave, he rather die than live another day under the governments laws. He told people of the government. He told what he saw. What he found and brought evidence into the busiest city streets. His feedback was not positive at all. He was dead man walking. He was threatened by both sides; the government and the people wanted him dead. Some people listened to him but were scared of what might happen to them. But he did have followers and those followers had followers.
The people who wished rebellion had hope and were ambitious to start a revolution. They just needed a cue on when to go and how to attack slowly the government. Schuwls was the cue; he was who kept the people going. He started small to finally breaking of the government’s wrath. He provided motivational speeches, posters, hope, and protests to the people. He escaped the hands of the government fleeing persecution with the help of his comrades.
Schuwls began a revolution and ended up a success. He changed the slums of the government. He believed of the word peace and helps us revolved around it. He is a peacemaker not a war maker. He wants what better for us. To see the light we had to bear the dark. Schuwls helped us go through that. He established the 3 houses for the country of Araria not to fall.
He has an aurora of peace and trust that radiates him. He finally had a glimpse of the word freedom, finally being able to breathe. He died sooner as the government finally caught him and executed him. The people were upset and backfired even more forming Araia.
He is remembered in our past and in our hearts.
Poster#1: The government is portrayed as the iceberg. The outer surface isn't what you think it is. They're hiding beneath something foul.
Poster#2: Join the fight. See the truth of the disruption of the government. What they hide from you will turn you against them.
Torn by pride
Healed by trust
Stand up of defiance
Araia will rise.
Ministry of Love:
If our people aren't following our criteria, disobeying our rules and affecting our country on a negative way ,causing mayhem. There will be consequences. We are preventing a fall of our country and for corruption to flood our lands.
These consequences are determined by your cause. If it caused harm to our people,land, or the country. It is divided into three levels with three separate buildings. From the lowest of crimes to the highest of crimes. The crime levels is distinguished by the Schuwls House, and the government. The Schuwls house determine the level and punishment and arrange your court. The government as well arranges your court and actually do the action of punishment.
Level 1) You are taken to Building 1 were you are isolated in a room. With the sound levels low and the walls made out of cushion. Where you are kept there for a whole month
Not knowing the time and listening to your own heartbeat. Reflecting on what you did wrong. You will be only given a sheet of paper with the words “You did wrong.” repeated.
After your release you will be taken out and will be under supervision from now on.
Level 2) You are taken to Building 2. Your new home will be an iron maiden. And you will be led out into a room where you will be interrogated and asked questions about you disloyalty and change you back into the good citizen. You will be sprinkled twice a day by a lead sprinkler.(with whatever amount the officer wants) The sprinkling will stop if you show good progress but not the iron maiden cast.
Level 3)You are taken to Building 3. Where it holds long vast of land. You will be living here for now on. You will be water-board every 5 hours. The remaining of the time you will be force to do labor in the camp. Working in the mines and the poorest of jobs. The officers will then have hold of you and have the authority to do anything to you. You can be assigned to stay there forever or will be released. But that is rare.
Our enemies reek of sin and corruption. If you think like they do , copying their motives,you are betraying your country and your people. They aren't who you think you are. They are liars and manipulative their people. Their streets show poverty and disease. The people scream of anguish and fear. Their government had us caged up like animals.We aren’t considered humans to them. Their torture ways are inhumane and cause excruciating pain. They don’t care for the people they care about their superiority and their wealth. They can care less about you.
We care about you. We have rules to prevent destruction of our country. They have rules to fight their own kin. Not help. Araia cares for you.
