      MADEIRA MAKES APPEARANCE AT MONACO

        Madeira makes appearance at Monaco GP
        By Emķlio Barros, in Sport, Motorsport · 04-11-2025 · 0 Comments

        Sofia Madeira, second seat replacement for 2026 onwards, appears at 2025 Monaco Grand Prix to fill in for an ill Antonio Giovinazzi.

        Antonio Giovinazzi was confirmed positive for Influenza and was unable to attend the 2025 Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday. Sofia Madeira, who will be replacing Giovinazzi from 2026 onwards, participated instead in her first ever Formula 1 Event and was the first woman to participate in the FIA World Championship since Lombardi in the '70's. Qualifying in 11th on the grid, Madeira managed to overtake multiple drivers throughout the race before settling into 9th by the race's end, scoring herself 2 points and putting her ahead of Giovinazzi.

        In the post-race interviews, Madeira stated that "it was really special to race for Alfa Romeo this year, even if it was for a single race. I look forward to racing with them again next year." Madeira later went on to state that, "when I was growing up, it was always a dream to drive for Ferrari, and I remember always going with my friends to Portimćo so we could see those red cars race around the track," a sentiment that has been shared with many current and previous Ferrari drivers like Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz Jr.

        Madeira's first Formula 1 Grand Prix wasn't without controversy though. Sebastian Vettel and Jehan Daruvala were taken out early in the race, with Max Verstappen retiring from the race after suffering a severe mechanical break on the car. Combined with an abysmal pit stop for Sergio Perez, Mercedes were able to make it out with a decent haul of points.

        Madeira is slated to have her next, and final, Formula 2 round later this month at the Circuit of the Americas in the United States. Madeira's Formula 2 Championship lead could be wholly decided in that round, as her battle with Guanyu Zhou is close. When asked about it in the Monaco post-race interview, she stated "I'm confident that I'll be able to win the race, that's the goal." Whether that confidence will pay off, however, is not entirely clear.

I don't know if this is the right place to post this but here it is; I am looking for a rival nation. With this rival nation Liburia will interact, go to war, will create buffer states and in the end it will make peace through a political union similar to the European Union. It will be something like the historical relationship between France and Germany. The end goal is to create a region where Liburia and its rival nation will be its founders and regional superpowers. If anyone is interested please check Liburia's factbook for more information and send me a telegram or post something here.

Monuments and Movements

Sosnowiec was unfortunately the site of mass kidnappings of Polish children by Germans during World War Two and because of that, many living survivors and their families wished to have a monument built to honour those lost. Said monument was brought up in the city hall and ultimately approved along with a secondary monument to the Jews who lost their lives as well. The joint Pole-Jewish monument would be featured in a park next to a pond and some benches. While the small park was being built, the members of the city hall decided to add upon it with a nice set of trees and more placards depicting the resistance efforts by the residents of Sosnowiec. The family members of the Polish Underground State wished to see monuments of their activities all throughout Poland and started a fund to raise money for said monuments and museums as not just Warsaw had resistance members. Word of this eventually reached reached several research institutes who would help them get the info and the artefacts that they'd need to take on such endeavour. Those institutes gathered together and had an initial fund of 5 million USD for said activities. The Polish Underground Organisation would be made to honour said activities.

In response to Finland, Poland under the guidance of PM Mateusz Morawiecki would deploy one of its submarines to patrol around the north side of the Swedish Island of Gotland and would land the ORP Grom and ORP Piorun escorting the ORP Kaszub corvette . Poland also would send contacts to Norway Germany and France to further discuss the necessary actions and ways to subdue the Finns. PM Morawiecki would also send his deputy to Moscow to keep tabs on the Polish/Russian relations as Poland shouldn't just burn the Russian bridge, but keep it open. The PM would also wait for Norway to respond to any new actions before discussing any new moves. In other news the Polish nuclear fission reactor has reached the 50% completion mark and is looking quite promising. May be built slightly ahead of schedule.

    WHERE HONG KONG STANDS, AN INTERNATIONAL CENTER OF FINANCE
    香港的所在地,国际金融中心
    November 2025 | 2025 年 11 月

      》香港经济的核心是什么?开始了。作为世界上的国际金融中心之一,香港在中华人民共和国发展更大的经济体中的地位是独一无二的。即使在多年的 COVID-19 大流行期间,香港的金融业仍然享有稳固的基础。

      What is the core of Hong Kong's economy? As one of the world’s international financial centers, Hong Kong’s position in the developing and larger economy of the People’s Republic of China is unique. Even during the years of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hong Kong's financial industry still enjoys a solid foundation.

      香港是中共发展起来的!
      Hong Kong Developed under the CCP!

      Since the pandemic, international companies have been increasing the number of employees every year, not limited to Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, UBS, and banks interested in taking a share of the growing wealth management cake for the Chinese middle class. The stability and huge business opportunities in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) provide international banks with room for development, allowing Hong Kong citizens to enjoy privileges that have gradually disappeared.

      The continuous growth of China's economy and the continuous expansion of the financial industry's opening to the outside world are the strong backing of the financial industry in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. As the world's second largest economy, China's economy has maintained rapid growth, with broad market prospects and huge business opportunities. At the same time, the process of corporate internationalization is accelerating and the demand for global capital allocation continues to increase, laying a solid foundation for the development of Hong Kong's financial industry.

      香港的稳定靠北京的指引!
      Stability of Hong Kong by Beijing's guidance!

      Hong Kong's functions as a global offshore RMB business hub, an international asset management center and a risk management center, as well as a "Belt and Road" investment and financing platform will be strengthened. Hong Kong's role as a bridge for international capital to enter the mainland and domestic capital to the world has become more prominent.

      In recent years, many leading mainland technology companies have been listed in Hong Kong, not only making Hong Kong the world's largest exchange in terms of IPO financing, but also changing the industry structure of the Hong Kong stock market. Since 2019, the share of the market value of the technology industry in the Hong Kong stock market has risen from about 18.6% to about 39.5% in 2025. While getting rid of the historical image of a gathering place for financial and real estate companies, the Hong Kong stock market has also broadened the financing channels for mainland technology companies and improved their international operations.

      珠三角湾团结繁荣!
      Pearl Delta Bay united and prosperous!

      The opening of the mainland capital market has brought opportunities for Hong Kong's financial industry. After the opening of the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect and Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect, the Hong Kong capital market has become a link between the mainland capital market and international investors, attracting global funds to buy A shares or Hong Kong stocks, playing an irreplaceable role. Hong Kong has strengthened its position as an offshore RMB hub. More than 70% of offshore RMB payment transactions in Hong Kong are handled by Hong Kong, and it is also home to the widest range of offshore RMB investment products.

      Hong Kong is also the world's largest international capital management center and international private wealth management center. The central government is actively exploring the potential space for financial management mechanisms in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. This will increase the channels for local residents of the Greater Bay Area to allocate assets in overseas markets, attract a large amount of capital to enter the Hong Kong asset management industry, and consolidate Hong Kong's position as an international asset management center.

Theatre goes Innovative

Music is a prominent part of life in Koszalin and it is shown in the Koszalin Philharmonic theatre. Said theatre had recently reported a drop in revenue since 2023. Jakub Chrenowicz conductor of the theatre had visited the city council to discuss options involving said drop in revenue, and one of the younger council members had an idea to allow local acts and secondary schools to perform there for a smaller crowd, with the increased amount of small to medium performances, the revenue might be able to balance out and the Theatre wouldn't be forced to close. Also contributing to the decline was a recent sound upgrade which left the theatre underfunded to advertise as good as it used to so not all of Poland was notified of said concerts and plays. Said theatre liked the idea and would try it out to see if the lost revenue would be made up. Local acts from around the West Pomeranian Voivodeship who couldn't afford the prices at the larger Szczecin theatres would be invited here to put on their shows. In a couple months time, Mayor Piotr Jedliński asked to see if the revenue had indeed gone up and would himself attend any secondary school recitals that he could.

After flying into Baghdad, Al-Asad met with Mostafa Al-Khadimi for discussions of business. After several hours a deal was brokered between Lebanon and Iraq for permission to open Lebanese precious stones private companies. Brands such as Mimar and Al-Don will be opened in southern Iraq and Kuwait.

Astana responds to the Finnmark Crisis through it's Permanent Representative to the United Nations

The First Administration of the Kuzmin Dynasty officially declares neutrality in regards to the territorial and cultural dispute between the Kingdom of Norr (Yarosluv) and the Republic of Finland (Amsterwald). The Permanent Representative of the Unified Emirates of Turan to the United Nations Magzhan Ilyassov advocates for a diplomatic resolution to the ongoing occupation of the Finnmark plateau by the Republic of Finland in response to the alleged mismanagement of Norr’s Finno-Ugric Kven people group. On Turan’s behalf Ilyassov would back the Russian representative’s calls for a quelling of the situation with as little violence as possible while vouching for any mediation to be held in Leningrad, noting the expressed neutrality of the Kremlin in contrast to both NATO and EU member states while alternatively offering to host the talks in Turan’s capital of Astana if the Oslo and Helsinki administrations so pleased.

Astana calls for a preemptive logistics assessment for a peacekeeping mission in the Finnmark Plateau

Ilyasov would call for a logistical assessment of the potential peacekeeping mission in case of direct conflict or extreme degradation of peace in Finnmark. Making a case for a neutral OSS lead mission to avoid having a NATO or European Union hegemony that may be accused of bias against or outright undermining the Finnish government.

Astana calls for probe into the situation of the Kven people

Lastly he would target the root of the issue, pleading for a UN Human Rights body or any other relevant UN based body to conduct a nonpartisan probe into the Finnish claims of mismanagement of the Kven people by Norr and the breaching of the Finno-Ugric Cultural Protection Agreements stressing that the validity of those claims is crucial to the responsible proceeding of any government, off handedly calling out countries who too swiftly took hard stances while acknowledging that Finnish disapproval of mistreatment, founded or not, should not have been outright casus belli if the situation cited was any short of cultural genocide although he would point out that the lack of casualties brought on by the invasion as of yet could still allow Finnish withdrawal without further deterioration of their image and/or worse socio-economic repercussions.

November, 2025 | The White House on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, D.C. - United States of Paramerica

THE START OF NEW UNITED STATES - SUDAN RELATIONS

For the first time since the collapse of the Middle Eastern Co-operation Organization (MECO) which had established and defined much of Sudan's trade deals between MECO member states and Non-MECO nations such as the USP. An effort for re-establishing trade and relations between Khartoum and Washington had been made as a meeting had took place between Sudanese Ambassador to the United States (Paramountica) Nureldin Satti and other Sudanese trade delegates with U.S. Trade delegates and President of the United States Joseph R. Biden within the Paramerican White House itself in Washington D.C.

Upon the finalization of this deal in the White House and with the full understanding for a need to a continuation and re-establishing of trade and relations between the United States and Sudan, a draft of the Sudan-U.S. Trade Agreement (SUSTA) had been sent to the legislative bodies of both nations, them being the United States Congress and Sudanese Parliament, to be reviewd and approved.

The entirety of agreement is essentially a copied version of the MECO-USP trade agreement that has proved beneficial to Sudan and so it was decided with the approval of Prime Minister Zaim Binallah and the Foreign Affairs Ministry and support from the Sudanese Parliament that Sudan will continue that similar trade agreement with the United States.

IN ADDITION :

No Visa Requirement for 90 Days on Paramerican Citizens Entering Sudan

No Visa Requirement for 90 Days on Sudanese Citizens Entering The United States of Paramerica

The Sudanese Land Armed Forces (SLAF) and Ministry of Defence had also announced a $245 million deal with the United States Pentagon, or the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), for the purchasing of the following:

30x MIM-104 Patriot Surface to Air Missiles (SAM)

30x M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) multiple rocket luncher.

As new additions to the Sudanese Land Armed Forces land and air defense programs.

The sale of the first weapons from the United States to Sudan along with the the revitalization of trade and co-operation between Washington and Khartoum had been recived with many praises and excitement seeing that the Sudan is a nation with a government structure that almost mimics the very same institutions and majesties of the democratic system and process that the United States does as well.

Prime Minister Binallah had of course given much of the credit to ambasador Nureldin Satti and the trade delegates for orchestrating much of the deal that has put Sudan and the United States much closer together since the days of former President Ronald Raegan and John F. Kennedy. Binallah had also made remarks at a possible re-establishment and strengthening of relations between Sudan and yet another power across the Atlantic, La Plata (Nevbrejnovitz) as he had hinted at both nations coming close to brokering a deal between Khartoum and Buenos Aires.

Astana responds to the Finnmark Crisis through it's Permanent Representative to the United Nations

| 2025 NOVEMBER | 0000 YS | Norr-Central Asian Relations | COPENHAGEN | ASTANA |

        The Minister of Foreign Affairs is unimpressed with the Central Asian response to the Finnmark Crisis.

    | Gušlaugur Žór Žóršarson, Minister of Foreign Affairs for the Norse Kingdom, was unimpressed with a recent statement made by the Central Asian representative to the United Nations. Magzhan Ilyassov, the Central Asian United Nations representative, recently made a statement[1] in which he called for a similar, near identical response to the crisis in Finnmark as the Russian Federation has. When questioned about the position of the Central Asians, Gušlaugur Žór Žóršarson had this to say, quote; |

                " [ . . . ] I would call it a highly expected response. Many nations, former friends,
                present foes, most all of them have affirmed and asserted their position with us.
                I do understand the plight of the Central Asians, being right underneath of the
                Russian Federation is no cakewalk I imagine. But taking the position of a
                BETA RUSSIAN society... I simply cannot condone that. I find myself incredibly
                dissatisfied with that response and will not count it among the friends of the Kingdom."
                
                - Gušlaugur Žór Žóršarson, Minister of Foreign Affairs for Norr

    | Few members of the Folketing have commented on this but it seems as though the Prime Minister is attempting to distance herself from these statements made by Minister Žóršarson. |

UN Ambassador Magzhan Ilyassov responds to comments made by Gušlaugur Žór Žóršarson, Minister of Foreign Affairs for Norr following Turan’s declaration of neutrality

|Ambassador Ilyassov| “It has come to my attention the dissatisfaction towards my actions taken recently in this building in regard to the situation in Finnmark, mister uhh… |He would struggle to look at his note, deciding not to even attempt pronouncing his name| ...The Foreign Minister for the Kingdom of Norr has openly expressed negatively about our stance, saying and I quote “But taking the position of a BETA RUSSIAN society... I simply cannot condone that.” Unprofessional and blatant disrespect from the minister in question, I simply hope that this does not reflect Oslo’s opinion on Turan, as the voice of our people we took the stance of our citizens, indifference, the plight of Finnmark WAS very detached from the minds of the people but my countrymen do not take kindly to this rhetoric, if we were to take the stance of some very expressive citizens as of NOW, well- It would be FAR less favorable than before.

|He would adjust his notes|

“Also, to the foreign minister, to seemingly denounce our stance- To further assess the situation before going completely to either side and seemingly the ONLY nation that has advocated for an investigation into Helsinki’s claim of mismanagement that would not only justify proportionate condemnation if it is unfounded but will surely be of use in any mediation efforts between your administrations, to denounce that stance stance as Russian influenced instead of what it really is, common sense and proper judicial proceeding, then it is clear that your emotional state hinders your ability to do your job. If or when your country is put in the hot seat as we see the Republic of Finland in now, Turan will afford Norr the fair treatment we are trying to afford Finland, regardless of whether Norr's Foreign Minister in his own words “will not count it among the friends of the Kingdom." We will continue to seek a path in which no blood is spilt over Finnmark, Norr retains control of their rightful territory and to lessen the economic impact on the common citizen of Finland that is already in motion”

UN Ambassador Magzhan Ilyassov calls for an emergency special session

“With that said I officially call upon the United Nations General Assembly to request an emergency special session to discuss the matter of the occupation of the Finnmark Plateau, Kingdom of Norr by the Republic of Finland on the 25th of October, year 2025 and I shall reiterate my previous statements urging for the authorization of logistical assessments by the Department of Peace Operations Office of Mission Support and any relevant body to examine the possibility and prospects of a potential investigation into the situation of the Kven people group at the epicenter of this crisis.”

    | ALMUDIRIAT ALEARABIAT ALEULYA - المديرية العربية العليا | The Department of the UAADF has confirmed plans to build a 10,000 foot runway on the Yemeni Perim Island located in the Bab-el Mandeb Strait and a 8,000 foot runway on the Jazirat Jabal Zuqar island in the Red Sea. The two airbases will be utilized to house a maximum of 200 military aircraft in total from fighters and CAS to strategic bombers, transport and logistics, and areas for mass deployment of drones. The two airstrips are considered part of the USAN's new defensive posture to prioritize total defense of the the Peninsula while providing the UAADF with quick deployment and air superiority advantages when needed to protect Somaliland and regional adversarial forces. The Supreme Arab Joint Chiefs of Staff will see to it that islands not suitable for commercial activities and profit will be utilized for national security arrangements. Both airspaces are expected to be secured with a combination of Bavar-373s, L-SAMs, and KM-SAM systems while possessing barracks to house a maximum of 450 personnel from the United Arab Maritime Expeditionary Corps (UAMEC) |
