Achievement unlocked : First translation post liked.

Reward : 1 extra chapter


At the east of Silezia Kingdom is a superpower nation “East Continental Empire”.

It’s a nation that succeeds (self-proclaimed) the name of the “Continental Empire” and the current ruling king is “Ivan the 8th”.
It takes pride as the most populated nation in the continent, the military force also equivalent to it. If now is a war time, soldiers will come pouring out like a tsunami.

“East Continental Empire” is a great threat to the surrounding nations.

 

 

“Excuse me. Your excellency, The Chief of Cabinet Secretary had arrived.”
“Earl Benkendorf [Benkendorufu]? Did she have business with me?”
“No. She said [There is a story regarding that]”
“Fumu…. Understood, Let her pass.”
“Yes your excellency!”

This place is the Imperial Military Minister office. Sitting on the desk is the Military Minister Marquis Alexy-Rediger [Arekusei-Redigeru].
While Marquis Rediger is the Military Minister, he also have position as General of the Imperial Army.

“Your excellency Military Minister, good day to you”

The name of the visitor is Earl Modesto-Benkendorf [Modesuto-Benkendorufu]. She’s in direct control of the Emperor and work as the Chief of the Emperors’ Government Secretariat, and also…
“Don’t trouble yourself with greetings. What is it about Public Security Chief of the Emperors’ Government Secretariat……..dono”

The Public Security Bureau of Emperors’ Government Secretariat is the only secret politic police that exist in “East Continental Empire”.

“Understood. To be honest, there is a story that your excellency need to hear.”
“What is it?”

When Rediger asked, Benkendorf take out a letter from her breast.

“…”
“How is it?”

In that letter, some information of the neighboring nation is recorded.

“Certainly this is interesting information…. Is this info reliable?”
“First, there is no mistake there.”

Rediger think it over carefully. In truth, this information won’t be a small effect for the “East Continental Empire”. There is possibility that the effect will make a bad situation for the empire in the future.

“We have to take some measures.”
“Yes. However, military intervention is prohibited by His Highness.”

Currently, the “East Continental Empire” is in a bit of chaos. A famine occurred last year and because of that, rebellion happened in various places did a considerable damage to the nation. There is no room to do an expedition.

“But, we can’t leave it as it is right”
“Ee. Therefore your excellency, I have a proposal.”

Rediger approved of Benkendorf proposal after some deliberation. Of course it’s a secret from others. The only ones that know about it is only the Emperor, the Military Minister and the Chief of Public Security Bureau.

“Then, I will excuse myself.”
“Aa, thanks for the hard work Chief of the Emperors’ Government Secretariat-dono. Let’s meet again later.”

After Benkendorf left, Rediger stand up and looked outside the window.
The Military Minister office is build in the center of the capital Tsargorod . The place where only rich man in the empire can lives.

However, appearance of homeless still stands out.
He saw the appearance of a child begging as luxurious noble carriage passed by.

“…Fun~”

The Military Minister closed the curtain and resumed his duties.


Some comments would be nice but please not comment’s like first, second and so on.

Ers:

I’ve got some time about decoding properly name of capital from chapter title.
Results:
– this is capital of Eastern Continental Empire (ECE)
– territory of this Empire is like territory of Imperial Russia
So I utilize my knowledge about history and Russian language:
– Car (Tsar) was title used by Russian Emperors from Ivan the Terrible to Nicholas II Romanov (roughly about 400 years)
– gorod means city in Russian (https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/город)
– Tsargorod would mean „City of Emperor”, also Polish version „Carogród” is one of old Polish names of Constantinople, which exactly means „City of Emperor” in Polish.

SUMMARY:
Capital of ECE should be called Tsargorod or Carogród in translation. I would use Tsargorod, beacause current emperor name is Ivan 8th (typical Russian name, also name of first Tsar – mentioned above).

Alexy-Rediger should be Alexei Rediger – properly Russian name.

    About Russians names.
    Modesto-Benkendorf [Modesuto-Benkendorufu] – actually Modest Benkendorf without ‘o’ at the end, also Modest is a name while Benkendorf is Russian noble surname – see Modest Mussorgsky and Alexander von Benckendorff (though there should be double-ff at the end but if the author didn’t used ッ then Benkendorf was correct) – one of chiefs of the secret police in Russian Empire.
