North Better-than-You removes Embassy in Tameside
After Tameside geo-relocated to the North Pacific, the North Betteran Government had the issue of keeping support for the nation or cutting it. While the military support for Tameside ceased, its embassy stayed in Tameside's capital as a show of good faith. On December 31st, however, the Tamesidean government converted to a dictatorship, and North Better-than-You gave the order for its foreign relations ministers in Tameside to abandon their embassy and come back home. North Betteran government now refuses to recognize the new Dictator as Tamside's legitimate government.
The Political Situation in Nicersdah leading up to the Elections on Friday
With many people homeless and displaced, the Nicersdahn people are now putting their votes up for the first time choosing on who will lead them. There are several organized groups that are running candidates and are trying to gain power in the 15 member NNC, what we call factions. Nicersdah was divided into 15 districts by the council without gerrymandering as there is no data to gerrymander with. Each district will elect one councilmember, in a system of first past the post. Some of the factions running candidates are:
The Liberal Faction (Leader: NNC Head Minister Ralengal Benatrov)
Polling: 39%, ahead in 6 districts.
The Liberals were the first group that founded the NNF and are led by a widely popular and likeable man. Otherwise, the Liberals are a relatively radical group calling for extremely small government and liberty on all issues, the direct opposite of the Loyalist Faction. Some of their main issues for this election are corporate growth, progress socially, and international cooperation.
The National Faction (Leader: NNC Minister for War Calmueri Trivano)
Polling: 35%, ahead in 5 districts
The Nationals are the faction with the most widely held beliefs among the people, yet their leader hinders their ability to expand into the populace. They were the second faction created in the NNF and have held the position as opposition leader so far and likely will continue with that. Their main issues are defence, conserving some parts of the old order, isolationism and patriotism. They have many of the same beliefs as the Loyalists, but they differ on support for the new democracy.
The Faction for the People (Leader: Felgo Bartuedo, NNC Councilmember)
Polling: 12%, Ahead in 2 districts
They are a social-democratic and left populist group that was founded about half way through the civil war. They claim the Liberal Faction isn't doing enough and support worker's rights and corporate regulation, as well as social progress. They are only polling as high as they are with their unpopular views because of a combination of media bias and clever campaigning and campaign spending.

Its that year again
Every 5 years Prei Meas has a census. The last one having occurred in 2016 means that now it is time for the 2021 Census.

The census website shall give Preimeai citizens an opportunity to answer the census online. This new census website shall go along side with the already existing census program employing vast quantities of paid and volunteer census workers to count the people of Prei Meas. The census is also important as it will decide numbers for the People's House of the Preimeai parliament for the next 5 years as well as provide crucial statistics and information for Nokor funding and recourse allocation. The additional questions asked will also help people intellectually learn about the demographics of the 3rd Nokor of Prei Meas.
Three Drunk Men Gang Up on Hotel Employees in Majabolga
A hotel employee is the victim of the beatings of three men in South Cikaretan, Majabolga Regency. The incident took place on Sunday (3/1) in the morning at the hotel where the victim worked.
South Cikaretan Sector Police Chief Commissioner Kusnadi said the perpetrators came to the workplace drunk. They insisted to be allowed to hang out in the café in the hotel.
“Initially the drunken perpetrator kept wanting to hang out in the hotel café. The hotel receptionist said he wanted to ask the General Manager for an explanation first because it was already 3.30 a.m. local time.” Said Kusnadi when confirmed, Tuesday (5/1).
The perpetrators apparently did not accept because they were told to wait. They got emotional and beat the victim.
“Because he was very drunk, he was just beaten.” said Kusnadi.
The perpetrators hit the victim’s head until he was injured. Luckily the wound was not critical.
“The wounds on the lips, on the forehead, on the head were because he was hit on the head. Not hospitalised, just minor injuries.” said Kusnadi.
The victim reported the case to the South Cikaretan Police, Majabolga. Currently the police are investigating.

Exercise Astariaxan Bond I is getting underway in the Empire of Wellsenfail, where the nation’s heavy tracked forces are undertaking interoperability training, hosting a unit of armoured infantry from the Principate of Vultesia.

Following their customary period of leave granted over the holidays, a Vultesian battalion has arrived in the Principate’s western neighbor to be reunited with their armoured vehicles, which were sent ahead of the main body in late December; ready to conduct several weeks of training alongside the Imperial Army, Wellsenfaile's primary warfighting force.The Vultesian New Model Army’s contribution to the training comes in the form of the 4th/6th Grenadier Battalion (4/6 GREN), who are set to be paired with a regiment of Wellsenfailen main battle tanks. Over the course of a nearly month-long training package dubbed ‘Astariaxian Bond I’ the combined force will go on to conduct numerous training serials, beginning with basic ‘dry’ maneuvers, aimed at building communication, cooperation and understanding between the two participating unit before gradually escalating towards live fire, combined arms, mounted assaults on simulated enemy positions.
The Commanding Officer of the Wellsenfailen 5th Grand Regiment, one Baron Yartiski had this to say on the venture, the first of its kind between the two nations, when interviewed by the Wellsenfailen Channel 3 News :
Yartiski’s 5th Grand Regiment is one of the top scoring armoured units in the Wellsenfailen military. They’re equipped with the domestically produced Firebird Z main battle tank, weighing in at no less than 62 tonnes and armed with a 105mm smoothbore main gun. In comparison the Vultesians will be operating from their family of IFV Model E Infantry Fighting Vehicles, primarily the IFV(P) ‘Errant’, armed with its 40mm autocannon and capable of carrying eight fully equipped infantrymen, but also a compliment IFV(C) Emperor command vehicles and IFV(R) Elk recovery & repair variants. It's this varied capability and requirement for cooperation and reliance between the two platforms that is hoped will breed teamwork and a culture of mutual trust.
Lieutenant Colonel Constans Paulitt, senior Vultesian officer participating in the exercise and Commanding officer of the 4th/6th Grenadiers thanked the Wellsenfailens for their hospitality and went on to lay out his thoughts on the training package to the Principate’s V24 News Network:
As alluded to in Lt.Col Paulitt’s brief, the exercise will be taking place on the rough and ready terrain of Wellsenfaile’s Gerstik Training Base & Proving Grounds, in the east of the nation. Gerstik is one of the Empire’s largest pieces of military real estate and comes equipped with its own transit accommodation, vehicle hangars, medical centre, sports facilities and bulk storage. It is also situated on 200 square miles of training area, complete with simulated settlements and defences, live fire zones, water features and electronic ranges.
Defence Professional will, as ever, be on scene to reveal the latest images, videos and interviews.
Joint Training Between Wellsenfailen & Vultesian Armour
Given the rather, ahem, biased, state of the media in the Principate itself, this is the first of many articles I'll be writing on Vultesian goings on from a neutural standpoint, so better to get all the facts across. I hope you all enjoy the format and the contents. V24 News will be back with its heavily slanted narratives soon enough.
Congressional Elections Update
With the date for Congressional Elections now less then a month away, an update of polling in the provinces is here. In the Hindenburg Island Province, the Demokratische Partei is holding strong, with the Liberale Partei making little to no gains. For the Bakterland Province, polling shows that the Konservative Partei seiner Heiligkeit will most likely lose some seats to the Demokratische Partei. In West and East Langesland, the Liberale Partei is polling to gain seats in the Province, taking them from the Demokratische Partei. As for North and South Klaueland, polling shows the Demokratische Partei taking seats from the Liberale Partei. That is all for the updates at the time.
The Political Situation in Nicersdah leading up to the Elections on Friday Pt. 2 (Part 1 was my post yesterday)
The Loyalist Faction (Lead by: Presidential Guard Romares Garganov)
Polling: 9%, Leading in 2 districts
The name is pretty self-explanatory. It was formed the day after the civil war and is a group of people that remain loyal to the President. Considering the true unpopularity of him under oppression that wasn't able to surface without freedom of expression, it is not that popular of a political party. It believes in the restoration of Anna Kamiltraz to the presidency as well as extreme conservatism, and a return to extreme isolationism
The Red Front and Worker's Faction (Lead by: Sir Cantariae Xanderbare)
Polling: 3%, Leading in no districts
Communists within the nation, extremely unpopular, with semi-revolutionary status. They believe in the abolition of public property and the dissolution of the council replaced by a new worker's council led by faction officials with revolutionary intent.
Others (Led by: Several)
Polling: 2%, leading in no districts.
A combination of factions ranging from the far right Silver Faction to the far left Revolutionary Faction, including the joke Parliamentary Party, which wants to split Nicersdah into 1000 districts and have 5 from each representing them as a statement on the ridiculousness of democracy and the council.
Vultesia and The veritian empire

Imperial Delegation Arrives in Hadian
After some delays, the Valcourian delegation arrived in Hadian's capital of Juche City this afternoon, before being promptly taken to meet with the nation's leader, Emperor Jon. Although uncorroborated, the meetings are likely to include discussion on formal diplomatic recognition, trade, and acknowledgement of the northern expeditions currently being undertaken by Hadian, which includes the use of Valcourian Naval Bases.
Speaking prior to the delegation's departure last night, Foreign Minister Norton was confident that 'agreements can be reached on all fronts, to the benefit of the Valcourian and Hadian peoples.'
