Thank you, greatests of Selene, for showing mercy unto me. You are in all righteousness to put unto me that grievous punishment.
Late Breaking News: A Hurricane Warning continues for 12 City-states and 3 are now under a Hurricane Watch as Jessica draws closer and closer to the Franconian coast. Vexto, Lamanson, and Downtown Yamo are likely the first to get any activity from the feeder bands of Hurricane Jessica. Let's take a look at where it is at the moment. Jessica is now a Category 4 and is on track to hit Vexto and Lamanson in the next 37 hours. Downtown Yamo will start seeing terrenchal rains come Saturday. Thunderstorms for the rest of the 12 City-states will come once Jessica makes landfall. Empress Xemptoworth has issued a state of emergency for the 15 City-states and is calling for the Franconian Emergency Disaster Team to start evacuating. Prepare now and evacuate the areas. 2.1 Billion are going to be affected. Power grids and water will be an issue. Disaster will cost up to 18 Trillion UCB Credits. Get out now while you still have time.
Breaking: Hurricane Jessica picked up speed and is headed for the City-states at 25 mph. This is the fastest moving storm in Franconian history and will be the most deadly since Hurricane Alonso in 2310. Hurricane watches are now in effect for all 15 cities in the City-state complex. High speed rail and hyperloop are packed to the brim and are transporting people out for free. Nearly 895 million cars are hitting the road to head east. While Jessica punches the West Coast and heads north to colder waters. Ocean temperatures where Jessica is are in the mid 80's making it more intense. Hurricane hunters are calling the first superstorm since Sandy in 2015. Pressures are as low as 795 millabars. Leaders of the world, praying for the FE and videos sending love out to the FE are trending. Enemy nations are lending out a hand for after the hurricane, finding that the FE is not so bad after all. This video shows Muslims praying for mercy on the West as they face West toward the FE instead of East. Only one word can confirm this Hurricane... MONSTROUS. Category 5 Hurricane Jessica is what is bringing peace to the FE. Banners saying "Jessica, go home" are being placed and Franconians are donating to the Red Shield.

LATE BREAKING NEWS: Xemptoworth: Hurricane Jessica is truly catastrophic. We will work together to rebuild what Jessicadid, and Jessica will be known as the most massive hurricane in the history of the Empire. I personally gave 2.9 million UCB Credits to the Red Shield of the FE. You can donate by texting "Jessica" to 8999021. Every last dime helps.
After Hurricane Jessica: We have more breaking news as there will be more storms and possibly another hurricane for the City-states region of the country. Tropical depression 7912-L is slowly, but surely making progress. It is starting to rotate with clusters of storms right in the center starting to spin. Hawaii has informed us that they are keeping an eye so we can focus on Jessica. If this forms, it will be named Julio.
Hurricane Jessica Update: Jessica, now a Category 3 is rampaging through the City-states and is leaving scars of what used to be Downtown Yamo, Vexto, and Lamason. Jessica is heading east and will hit Hiden, Rinnyville, and Frenchman Falls as a Tropical Depression. The hurricane is losing energy fast and will more than likely be torn apart by the Bearded Dragon Mountains. It will take some time to get things up and going and will most likely take a massive toll on the Franconian economy. Trade is cut off from the biggest part of the nation and and public and government transportation (high speed rail and hyperloop) will discontinue services until the tunnels and roadways are cleared of water and debris.
New Tropical Development: Newly formed Tropical Storm Julio will pose no threat to the FE, but will bring thunderstorms to the coastal areas.
No More Jessica: Hurricane Jessica is now just a cluster of rain and snow in the higher elevations bringing blizzard like conditions to the ski resorts up in the Bearded Dragon Mountains. But on the coast, it left 14 trillion UCB Credits in damage, 52,000 lost, and 4 million killed. Prayers fromSelene have been heard as they bring water, food, and shelter to the millions that don't have it. High end retailers are giving out free clothing, and local eateries are making sure they don't let anyone go hungry. The candidates for the election, Empress Xemptoworth and Jim Fontain, are joining forces and leading efforts to rebuild. The nation is here.
Millions Without Power: People on the West got power rerouted to them, the people think that the government did them wrong when the central power grid went out in some parts. FEG&E is working on the issue and is making sure that there is more than enough power by checking the power plants in the east.
Halted: Franconian stock markets are now on a downturn and Jessica is to blame. All stocks went down by 5 to 55 thousand points. Efforts are continuing to get the country's GDP up again. World donations are helping only a bit.
Hurricane Julio Hurricane Julio was recently formed a couple of days ago. Julio only stands at a Cetegory 2 and poses no threat to the west yet. Projections predict that it will come close, but go Nort to Yukakstinuk, a small territory northwest of the FE. That's your news for tonight
And Now, a Message from the Empress: Greetings, Fellow Franconians. I am bringing this message to you live from the Beige House. I have important news to tell you as cleanup in the West continues. Disaster relief will continue and we will get through this situation together. We as a nation a feeling the aftermath of the deadliest hurricane of the century. The economy has halted, ports are closed in the Western Sector, public transportation is now starting to return as the streets of Vexto, Downtown Yamo, and Lamason are now drivable. We are appreciative of the help from other nations and will continue on as a nation who supports those who are helping us. Enemy nations are now helping us and tensions are going down. The FE is not going to be at peace, but we will be pretty close. Jim Fontain and I have donated 45% of our campaign funds to the cause of disaster relief and will continue to fight for your rights. Fontain is running a great campaign and I couldn't asked for a better oponant. Just know, we will rebuild.

Oil has been found! After workers were fixing a water channel and digging under it to reinstall its 1932 foundations, a worker hit a pocket of oil which burst. The estimate of how much oil there is still unclear but itís estimated to be worth about a good 1 Billion dollars.
Franconia Empire and Oleic-dust silver mining company
Congrats. That is a huge discovery. Luckily, you don't have to worry about us stealing the oil because the FE is almost 100% dependent on electric cars and green energy. We are willing to trade electric cars for some baskets. We also have modern, yet futuristic furniture that you can repair for us for some of your solar panels.
BREAKING: Crowds are cheering as the Franconian Government made the announcement of universal health coverage. Citizens, rich and poor, now have all the health coverage they can get. Doctors are now abundant in the Empire. This happens after Hurricane Jessica. Now people don't have to worry about having to pay for injuries caused by the monstrous hurricane. This made Empress Xemptoworth's approval rating go up from 74% to 89%, not to mention, she has been fighting for this forever and she is now getting praises. Looks like Xemptoworth is in the lead to becoming the most progressive leader, and the most caring for the citizens. Victory is her's.
Election Update: Empress Xemptoworth leads by 60 points as Fontain is slowly but surely trailing behind.
