Invasion Of Zimbabwe
In order to secure the last of South Africa, King Eli is now focusing his sights on annexing Zimbabwe, the last large independent country in South Africa.
Negotiations failed, and the leader of Zimbabwe expelled all Celestial diplomats from Zimbabwe and used his military to capture the Embassy and imprison all the staff working there, including the Celestial ambassador.
Enraged by this, King Eli ordered the military to position themselves on the border. The leader of Zimbabwe denied 2 ultimatums demanding the release of the Celestial personnell.
Following this, King Eli ordered the military to invade Zimbabwe.
The new 5th Marine regiment, 1st Marine regiment, 7th infantry division, 34th infantry division, 12th infantry division, 7th armored division and the 4th armored division crossed the border into Zimbabwe. The 2nd and 1st airborne division dropped in the south of the country, inorder to disrupt the Zimbabwean military. The 4th Air Wing bombed numerous military installations and industry.
The 5th Marines, 34th infantry, and 4th armored(army group A) broke thru Zimbabwean lines at the towns of Chirundu and Victoria falls, and began advancing into the country.
Meanwhile, the 1st Marines, 7th and 12th infantry and the 7th armored( Army group B) broke thru the main Zimbabwean line at The battle of Mutare, and pushed into the country.
Army group B pushed forward, brushing aside all resistance. They eventually met at the enemy at Masvingo. The 3rd Marine Company eventually broke thru the line on the 4th day of battle, allowing other Celestial troops to pour in and overrun the enemy. They start pushing towards the Zimbabwean capitol of Harare.
The 1st and 2nd airborne managed to secure the south of the country, even launching an attack on Bulayo, 2nd largest city in Zimbabwe. They were eventually pushed back and await assistance from Army Group A.
Army Group A managed to secure the north and west of the country, brushing aside the weak resistance that faced them. They pushed into and took Bulayo, with assistance from the 1st and 2nd Airborne.
Army Group B attacked Harare, and after a fierce 5 month battle, manage to wipe out the Zimbabwean military and take the city.
The Zimbabwean president surrendered the country to Celestial military forces, wanting to stop the death and violence. With his surrender, Zimbabwe is formally annexed into the Kingdom of the Celestials.
Invasion of Mauritania
Republican Forces swarmed over the borders following an attempted government take over by Senegalese communists in the early morning. The capital city was occupied by the 7th Tank Division and the 3rd Guards Tank Division, which promptly put an end to the attempted take over.
Rebel strongholds in the northeast of the country have been under aerial bombardment for at least six hours as of the time of this post, while rebel strongholds in the south are being crushed out by Army and Republican Guard forces. At 4PM, Mauritania was annexed by the C.R.S.
Republican News, Easter Special
The nation of Gambia has now been fully occupied by the Coastal Republican States, but an annexation has not taken place yet.
Sierra Leone has been annexed after a referendum within the government, and the president signed a proclamation stating the end of Sierra Leone as a country and the absorption of it into the C.R.S.
The Republican States officially adopted the Union Pound currency as part of the nations entrance into the Seoul Agreement Organization. The nation also participated in a military exercise in the Ukraine with Omnise and Porto Verde.
The C.R.S has unveiled a new project to increase the economic and living conditions of Mauritania and Senegal. This includes the exploitation of the massive iron ore deposits, and the construction of newer railways. The government has also begun to modernize villages to have running water and electricity, as many of them are far from actual water sources.
Invasion of Guyana
The Armed Forces of the Republic of Omnise decided to invade Guyana. We are going to send 3x 56 000 soldiers, 280 MBTs, 650 artillery, 870 logistical vehicles. Guyana is a key country in the America, we are going to estabilish several large trade centers there. The ONS Apollo aircraft - carrier will protect our forces from possible strikes from the air - there's no large chance of this, the Guyanan Army is underfunded, small, and uses outdated equipment. We are going to democratize the nation and hold elections as soon as possible.
General Elections in Porto Verde
The last general election in Porto Verde was a test for the outgoing Prime Minister and his formation "The Liberals of Porto Verde". Indeed, the scandal provoked in Congress and public opinion about the so-called economic reform, the "Market & Purchasing Power Act", caused a weakening of Luke Pereira, who nevertheless managed to remain in power thanks to the progressive group "Progressives for Porto Verde", nicknamed the "metropolitans" (because they carry the same colours as the flag of the capital and the party was founded in the capital). These elections were a godsend for the Social Democratic Party, which took 22 seats from the Liberals and Communists, who found themselves sidelined; the metropolitans made a noble advance by taking 5 more seats. However, the conservative camp found itself strengthened in the High National Council and limited the "breakage" to the National Council where the xenophobic formation "Verdeans First" cut the ground under the Conservatives' feet by taking 17 seats.
As a result, Pereira side remains in place while observing less hostility among the Social Democrats where their new leader (Gonzalo Williams) advocates a "pragmatic and tolerant" approach.
The Porto Verde Congress is made up of a bicameral parliament with the lower house as its base. The Congress is composed of the National Council and the High National Council. The Congress votes jointly on the budget and the ratification of the various treaties signed with the Porto Verde nation, but the final decision of the legislature is made by the National Council. The National Council is elected by direct universal suffrage and the High National Council by indirect universal suffrage.
The Congress consists of 1000 representatives in total.
The National Council is the basis of the Porto Verde legislature. Elected by direct universal suffrage, it is composed of 650 representatives. The National Council passes laws, fines them and can repeal them; likewise the chamber votes confidence in the government and elects the Prime Minister. Since the National Council is elected directly by the people, the government is accountable to this chamber. The National may be dissolved by the Duke under a request from the Prime Minister ; the National Council may submit a motion of censure if it is supported by at least 45 parliamentarians. The government is dismissed by a qualified majority. If the government and the Prime Minister are dismissed, it is up to the parliamentary group that initiated the motion to hold a vote of confidence in the new government. If the new appointed Government to reach to confidence from the National Council, Duke must dissolve the National Council and anticipated elections shall be held.

High National Council
The High National Council is the upper house of Congress. Elected by indirect universal suffrage, the upper house votes with the lower house on treaty ratifications, the government budget and constitutional amendment. The High Council may advise the government in the same way as the National Council but cannot prevent the National Council from submitting a motion of censure. On the other hand, the High Council may reject the decision if the High Councillors vote by a 70% majority of the Chamber. The High Council confirms major appointments such as the Chief of Staff and the Keeper of the Seals.
The High Council may propose an amendment to the National Council if the High Council has adopted it by a simple majority.

Its almost a romantic story... The last nation to be turned is Tunisia, the home of Carthage the rival of Rome.
The Pater Noster knowing the power he had over the small nation immediately sent the ultimatum to the leader of Tunisia to surrender their independence or face the war machine of the SECP.
Assuming they thought it would be a bluff they asked for our military to come...
Needless to say the conflict was over quite shortly, but not in the brimstone and fire way as expected.
Instead a dagger found its way into the leadership of Tunisia, quite literally.
A covert operation force dealt with the leadership and quite quickly afterwards airstrikes destroyed several key locations afterwards including ports, military post, and majority of the love went to airports.
The civilian population was to be ensured that they where not in target areas and their casualties would result in stricter rules of engagement of airstrikes.
Tunisia was bombed for several hours until the Army was ready to push into the nation and by the time they did the resistance was minimal.
The final nail was struck the coffin was final, Tunisia surrender soon after.
I presume the leader got Julias Caesar'd?
Nah more like he walks into his room at night getting ready for bed and as he closes the door looks up and sees a masked man in front of him. Before he could even make a sound a hand grabs the him from behind a knife gets jammed through his C3 C4 vertebrae. Not killing him instantly instead only paralyzing him and then starts to gurgler on his own blood while oxygen is cut off from his brain...
Little less dramatic then getting stabbed by 20 people
I Declare my Candidacy for Re-election in the senate
The Imperial Congress has reached a total of fifteen members! Feel free to join (the dispatch has yet to be updated, I have to figure out the nations of our members):
Here in The Imperial Congress, we believe that the community is at the heart of any region. The people, their interactions, and the soul of the region is, ultimately, what guides a region and its future.
The Imperial Congress supports an emphasis on community leaders over political and government leaders. Those who hold positions of power need to first and foremost by trendsetters for the community, constantly striving to do what's best for the region and community before their own petty political views. We believe this because, ultimately, true change in the region is not set by the government, but rather by the leaders of the community. They must always set the best example.
The Imperial Congress supports a number of community initiatives to help boost involvement and the continued development of the region. This includes, but not limited to:
An endotarting program, to increase engagement and interaction;
A regional border welcoming force, to provide the region with more stable retention and integration;
Frequent community events, such as game nights and other initiatives, to incentivize community engagement;
The establishment of a wider range of government opportunities for engagement.
The Imperial Congress believes in government integration programs to further help newcomers find their place in The Democratic Republic, so that newcomers don't simply fade into inactivity but become contributing, active, and interested members of the community.
The Imperial Congress is opposed to an individual-based electoral system and rather favors a party-based electoral system. An individual-based electoral system demands constant involvement from individuals as opposed to parties and often diminishes competition. Whereas, a more party-based electoral system promotes healthy competition and emphasizes parties.
The Imperial Congress supports a looser separation of powers, rather opting for something similar to our current system, where most executive positions may be held by legislators. This is to allow people to take a healthy role in several areas of the region.
The Imperial Congress believes in a strong executive to help strictly enforce the laws and conduct of the region so as to keep the community and its development in check.
The Imperial Congress advocates for a competitive and strictly managed Legislature to ensure mature conduct within debate and voting. Rules are important, thus a code of conduct must be established, or maintained if already existent.
The Imperial Congress believes in a strictly serious and mature judicial system, by implementing stricter requirements for cases, lawyers, and the usage of the Court channel.
The Imperial Congress is fundamentally against 'Executive Orders' as a power of the Consul, seeing it as an overstep of the powers of the executive into that of the legislative.
The Imperial Congress is opposed to the powers of the Founder, believing that only those who have earned their positions into power should hold them. The Founder holds no inherent right to a position of authority. Checks and balances maintain the stability of the government.
The Imperial Congress is strongly of the belief that maturity and strictly serious discourse should be constantly maintained in the Court and all judicial affairs surrounding it. As such, Court channels should not be accessible to the open public, but only to those under trial.
The Imperial Congress supports a strict interpretation of the Constitution and laws of the Republic. Members of the region should be punished according to the word of law, not emotionally-driven interpretations of it.
The Imperial Congress advocates for a stricter code of conduct for regional and governmental behavior. Not strict enough to inhibit community growth, but rather to promote a positive form of it.
The Imperial Congress is for an expansionist foreign policy, directed towards benefiting the Republic over any other regions.
The Imperial Congress supports establishing relations with new and influential regions, rather than small ones which lack real interregional influence.
The Imperial Congress is against building embassies with embassy collectors. Their embassies are worthless and lack any real value to the Republic.
The Imperial Congress is supportive of The Democratic Republic regularly taking part in R/D gameplay. This is to spread our reputation and our name across NationStates, allowing our community to expand and our region to develop on the foreign stage.
The Imperial Congress advocates for the establishment of an intelligence body to keep tabs on foreign regions which have been deemed threats to the Republic.

Return of Abroad Scientists!
The research mission for studying spaceflight draws to a close. It has been a week since we have sent our scientists, and now our scientists board a private jet and are flying home as we speak. We appreciate Omnise's hospitality and their willingness to share knowledge to help better humanity as a whole. Upon the return of the scientists, we will review the gathered data, and attempt at building our first rocket.
Greetings, The Democratic Republic!
I am a wandering tribe of lost sailors and would love to settle on these fine shores. I wish nothing more but to live in peace and prosper amongst all of these diverse peoples you harbour within your borders. May our alliance be one of blood and steel!
Ephraim Athelan, Chieftain of the Silbi
Invasion of Suriname
Suriname is a beautiful country with azure blue shores and rich natural resources with lush forests, it's a paradise. In the past decades a huge corruption crisis evolved in the country, billions were stolen for personal interests of people. The current government led by Petro Salvini stated that they will finally end this crisis in the country. They failed. The inflation is record high, the unemployment hit 48%.
The military was disbanded, anarchy rules in the country. We must stop this. We will send our military to make safety and order is the country, we mustn't let Suriname be destroyed.
The 75% of the population lives in the northern part of the country, we are going to start the liberation there.
Our main forces from Guyana will cross the border at Skeldon. We will move along the costline until we reach the eastern border of the country. The navy will support us all the time with artillery and airstrikes if needed. The total number of solders sent is nearly 248 000 solders with 1123 tanks and 745 artillery and several hundreds of logistical vehicles. We are trying to preotect the rainforests of the nation. Suriname will be liberated and all of the criminals will be imprisoned as soon as possible. We don't expect much rebels, the invasion will be quick.
