Subject: Report on the Situation in Noronica

Brief: This file contains information regarding the request made by R18.1130I-C, and details the situation in the Overlordship of Noronica for use in future operations.

Following the request made by the Intelligence Department, this file will serve as an assessment of the situation in Noronica, in addition to the wider Noronnican Empire.

The Overlordship of Noronica and the Confederation of Alteran Republics are at present experiencing a dramatic changes in their governments, both overt and covert. In the Alteran Republics, reports confirm that the Alteran Curia, the ruling Council of the state, has been killed in a bombing attack of unknown origin. Keith Ryansan, Praetor for Information and Designated Survivor, is the only survivor and has been appointed Strategos. Following was mass arrests in Segovia, mostly against members of #Altera4Alterans, with approximately 4,200 members arrested since the ascension of the Strategos. The Strategos had also praised the Alteran Council of Information and Horizing Inc. for their aid in restoring the function of the Alteran Government. However, as inferred to in IV-18.1201O-C and IV-18.1201T-C, there is no evidence to suggest with Confidence that there are replacements for the former positions of the Alteran Curia.

In Noronica, there is a growing conflict between the Government of Noronica vested in Prime Minister Joshua McIntosh and Overlord Tytus Alexander I. Several Credible reports from multiple Noronnican news agencies, one of which, The Gwynon Times, is under the patronage of Prince Trystan Alexander, and is suspected in Confidence to be reporting in such a way to discredit McIntosh's Government. On 03 October, news broke from NMC that the "Modern Monarchy Bill", reviewed in IV-18.1201T-C "has language that would severely curtail the powers of the Overlord of Noronica" had passed through the Federal Assembly and was awaiting Royal Assent. After several weeks lacking a response, the Bill was returned to the Federal Assembly without Assent, where a following attempted vote was interrupted by the Overlord himself, who unconstitutionally (assessed with Confidence) dissolved the Federal Assembly. Since then, Noronica has been under contested rule with the Prime Minister issuing executive orders to maintain the continuity of the Government. On 20 November, the Overlord made a visit to the Prefectorial State of Arván to meet with members of the Noronnican Armed Forces involved in the War in Charbagnia. Earlier, controversy was stirred by a member of the Noronnican Army with the hastag #Armywithoverlord, suggesting an end of loyalty to the Government, this has been assessed with Confidence, corroborated with the files in Reference. The following day, The Gwynon Times reported on protests in the Prefectorial State of Sussex Isle had turned violent, prompting a response by the same units based in Arván, with assent by the Prime Minister, Unsubstantiated reports, in Reference, suggest that the units initially refused the Prime Minister's orders, assigning their loyalty to the Overlord. On the day the Intelligence Department submitted its request, the Prime Minister had demanded the units stand down, as reported by NMC. As of the writing of this report, no resolution has been found in the situation, assessed with Confidence.
