Amendments made as the Chamber is Dissolved
As the activity in Aukumnia was essentially at an all time low, in a bold move, the founder, through a referendum, decided to dissolve the legislature. This was after a period of the Chamber being inactive and the representatives neither debating nor writing new legislations. As such, it was decided that perhaps dissolving the chamber and instead having a chamber with all citizens as it's member would be more active and vibrant. However, this was not the only amendment planned. This was among the first amendments, as there were plans to modify the executive too, among other things. While it is still quite early to see if they were moves in the right direction, there are already discussions to reverse the change as a few individuals seek to bring back party politics and competitive politics. Albeit gradually, activity seems to be on the rise.
Trev Wins the race for SC in a rather One-sided Election
Struck by inactivity, the elections for a powerful new SC was extremely important as the SC had their role clear - to revive Aukumnia. As such, three ran in the elections, Eternal Imperials, a former SC, Aontas and Trev, two well known former representatives of the chamber. While Eternal Imperials seemed to be a safer option out of the three, Aontas has been involved in a few inactive UCRs and has a bit of experience on how to revive such a region, while Trev's ambitious and controversial term might be just the thing that brings the region out of it's slump. While it was expected to be a close race, Trev ended up winning rather one sidedly, bagging over 50% of the votes. Soon after winning, he announced his new cabinet which was comprised of a number of new faces. As such, it might be where Aukumnia reinvents itself. It is to be seen how effective his term proves to be.
Xadrya elected as the new President after a Controversial term
Trev had an extremely controversial term in TFU with a large number of critics, which ultimately led to an abrupt end following a vote of no confidence and a resignation. The elections following the resignation saw a large number of candidates signing up, however, after dropping out, 7 candidates contested for the position. Despite the large number of candidates, Xadrya, a well known figure around TFU, ended up winning with a huge margin over others, over 50% compared to the 15% that his rival had. He won the elections as TFU is going through a difficult phase of its own. Despite the initial excitement, the interest has fell considerably, with the turnout reflecting that. The Federation may very well be closed if it does not gain a new member, and in such a dire situation, it would be interesting to see what path Xadrya ends up taking.
Community Activity Stagnates as New Initiatives are taken
The Initiatives for increasing activity are the hosting of game nights in every week and starting the foundation of a new regional roleplay. The game nights were well received with a significant participation, and a significant interest in it. The games played through bots were open to both citizens and visitors, and were an enjoyable experience for the community. On the other hand the roleplay is still in progress. There is also the possibility of other initiatives to be taken in the future like tournaments, writing contests, themed events, gaming night or competitions, a Minecraft server and maybe even festivals that will include a variety of games and events.
The Aukumnian Imperial Fleet involved in a number of Operations
After being established, the fleet immediately set off to work by being involved in a number of operations ranging from practice raids, and a number of detag operations. While still inexperienced, and struggling with manpower, the military still is quite frequently being involved in a large number of operations on a weekly basis. This in turn has helped the military to gradually make a name of sorts for itself. While it is only in its infancy stages, gradually, should it grow numerically, it shows great promise of evolving into a large, active and a formidable organisation. However, the growth in the military can only happen should the region itself grow, which as such is the immediate concern of the current administration. It would be interesting to see how the military grows once the region is revived and grows.
