The Addresses tend to address principles we believe embody Pacifica, with a heavy emphasis on Francoist thought. Not all addresses specifically discuss Francoism directly, however.

As we continue in our era of Pax Pacifica, I watch and see loyal Pacificans doing any number of jobs, from procuring tech to sending aid, from recruiting new members to mentoring cadets from the Academy. As I look on, I see something embodied in so many different Pacificans: the pride of Pacifica.

What exactly is the pride of Pacifica? We, Pacificans, do not have pride. We do not have pride in our work; we do not work so that we gain—we work so that Pacifica gains. When we have pride, it is not our pride, it is Pacifica's pride, through us. That you or I do our job well or badly does not help you or me. The Pacifican gains nothing from performing their job well. It is <u>Pacifica</u> that gains or loses, that has pleasure or pain, from our work.

When we join ''the'' New Pacific Order, we unite our sovereignty in an Emperor. When he gains, we gain. When he losses, we lose. And indeed, one cannot but hasten to add, when we gain, he gains, and when we lose, he too, loses. When we express the pride of Pacifica through our actions, and not our petty, individual concerns, we gain. But when we individual asserts itself against the pride of Pacifica, only the individual gains or looses, and not the Body Republic.
