Thalass News Now:
Following an extensive debate in the Chambers of the Serene Council, the Thalassocracy is set to ratify a new constitution which will abolish the position of President and reorder the national government to be more parliamentary based. Retaining their veto power, the Serene Council will be elected to 10 year terms and in that time each of the 5 members will serve a single two year term as Archon. The first Archon will be the incumbent President of the Council Alyssandra de Carro. The general public has met this outcome with some optimism though the markets and the private sector have yet to settle the volatility the debate brought about.
Many good wishes for your nation's next chapter.

To mark the 20th Anniversary of the Palantina Bombings, Archon de Caro laid a white wreath draped in black ribbons at the memorial site in the coastal city of Tolosa. In 2001 a group of extremists from the Amphi Highlands carried out a series of bombings across the city of Palantina in an effort to cause mass hysteria. The resulting public outcry was met with a military deployment and brief conflict in the Highlands between the National Military of Parthenopias and the Extremists. By 2006 the conflict was declared over though some simmering violence would linger until 2008.
Breaking: Three MP's were kicked out of Parliament today on grounds of Treason. The three MP's were trying to sell Franconian secrets to enemies.. Treasonous acts were called out by the Empress. Treason is punishable by law and would ban the citizens for life from ever returning.
Heated Discussions: The Empress was seeing red on the Parliamentary floor today after the treason story from yesterday. It sparked the debate of whether or not the Empress was being too harsh on the MP's.
MP Cathy Ioni: Empress Xemptoworth, it is barbaric that you sent the three MP's away from the Empire, knowing DANG WELL that one of the MP's had a wife and two children. I have to ask you, what went through your mind?
Xemptoworth: What went through my mind was that three of my MP's were caught selling government secrets to an enemy nation! What did you expect me to do, flog them? Publicly execute them? No! We are the FREAKING Franconian Government! We DO NOT act like this! I implore this behavior. Just because you are a parent and are part of helping the Franconian Governmental Process work DOES NOT mean you are above the law! I implore your statement Mrs. Ioni. Your whole party is behind you looking at you in awe because of how ignorant you look right now. Because of these three MP's we are now more vulnerable than ever. And we will find the FEBI agents who helped these MP's and exparté them from the Motherland as well...
