RP: Rose in Etrius
With Rose now being in Etrius for more than a week, She would have kept herself away from the Media, and more so hogging Natalia for herself. At least, the best she could to a nations leader.
However, Rose coming to Etrius was more than a social visit, she would open up onto something more... straining. During her down time with the Queen, She would begin to open herself up, and relay all her feelings. She would explain how much her time away makes her dread and how she wants to be more with Natalia than to be so far away. She mentions her most hated option, but the only one she has, Abdicating the Throne to Roma.

Kemonomica is the only exception of a civilized race of Machines that Archron complies and accepts. Proving that machine’s can be good, but many are a threat to our very world”

RP: Phase Three of the Five Year Plan
The Sol Imperium government has recently announced the success of Phase Two of the Five Year Plan. Significant deforestation of large parts of the south combined with weather control machines has steadily increased the area of farmable lands. Following this, the government has begun to auction off large swathes of land to farmers and plantations, offering starter loans for any farmers so long as they move to the south and begin farming immediately. Large scale plantation owners have been offered free slave labor via POWs and other prisoners so long as at least 70% of the profits in the following fiscal year are reinvested into the plantation's production capabilities. In Sol Vitorri and across the north, crown owned canning and other food processing factories have begun to open under the Mikhov Agricultural Exports Company, taking advantage of the booming fishing sector and soon to be thriving agricultural sector to open up operations rapidly.
Mining in some parts of the newly deforested rolling hills has also begun, with numerous private venture opening in the area to tap the vast resources within. To support this industry, the government is now offering subsidies to various metalworks companies in the north, offering tax reductions if they set up shop within Sol Vitorri.

The movement has been tied to communism and other leftist ideas, as well as the ideas of atheism, putting them at odds with the extreme right-wing theocratic monarchy currently ruling Atraland.
RP: Rise of the Seversky
Following the rapid industrialization of the north, a wealth divide has grown apparent, with the upper class and the nobles being in an abundance of wealth where those that live and work in the cities tend to live in poverty. With the class divide, street gangs known as "Seversky", meaning "rats of fortune" have begun to pop up around the north. These loosely-organized groups run numerous criminal rackets, with extortion and loan sharking being the most prominent.
In one particular day, under the shade of night-time darkness, the Reassembler Junk Ship which sailed from the lands of Candain, just to be since then drifting across the sea for such a long time have recently beached - with a crash against Liranaholm's (Dwarf Land4)'s coast. The cause for this was a change of direction by the waves and seeing as the ship ran out of valuables, it was further pushed by the onboard swimming-capable Workers towards the closest mainland resulting in a swift braced crash.
The Reassembler party within Liranaholm are under the same situation as the one's within Antekuna. They must quickly find a zone of interest, notably rich in whatever they can scavenge, and lay low for some time. Within unknown land, and with the sheer size of the Protectors, it may as well be difficult for the automatons to stay undercover -- regardless, they tried their best to avoid drawing attention by not approaching inhabited settlements of the natives.
Sure, settlements themselves are considered a zone of interest, but given the current numbers of the party, it is but a feeble fifteen robots against an entire nation. It is wiser to stick to the shadows to the best of their ability, and scavenge in more safer areas.
Enough of the future tense.
For now, its time to venture deeper into this unknown land.
slightly detailed numbers
10 Swimming Workers (Cutwas)
With the landing being on the sparsely populated island of Leyte, there would be only one settlement necessary to avoid, Lianyo, a port on the West coast coast. Due to this, there would be a lot of scrap located on the island, with 2 of the main military junkyards located there. The main part of the scrap there would be aircraft and ground vehicles, with little to no naval craft on the island.
As the Reassemblers made their way through deeper into the island of Leyte, they soon struck gold. They decided to pick a spot between the two military junkyards, and sat still meanwhile the workers went ahead to procure the scrap from the junkyard.
A new chapter opens for the Reassemblers within Liranaholm now...
The workers sent are split into three groups, with two of them going into both military junkyards, meanwhile the third one is left behind in their sweet spot to begin constructing their colony. Of course it'll take a while for the first waves of material to come through, so right now the third group is simply preparing the area around them for construction.
Meanwhile the two other groups are accompanied by one Guardian protector each. Leaving two Guardians, and a marksman in the sweet spot to guard.
Natalia has enjoyed her wife's company and understands the way she feels about the distance. The estate is coming along nicely in the north countryside with the structure itself almost finished and only requires interior work until completion. In the mean time they spend the days in and around the penthouse apartment in downtown Kiros. After Rose shares her desire to abdicate in order to have a more permanent residence, the queen says she may do as she wishes but will not push her toward abdication because she knows how much the kaiserin loves her country but assures her if that's what she desires then she has Natalia's support and is aleways welcome.
In the event Rose takes permanent residence in Etrius, as a member of the royal family she has been given a summary of her capability within the federation. This includes the organization of public events, meeting with diplomats in the name of Etrius, an escort of desired size and strength (to a point) both at home and abroad, rights to the 'Hospitality' and emergency response to a crisis should Natalia be unavailable or indisposed.

Tírnua is a hub of culture and advancement in Evacasia. With Taoiseach O'Neill at the helm, they had entered a period of time known as the 'Tírnuan Tiger'. The economy was thriving, society was blossoming, and what had once been a forgotten backwater wilderness had developed into a nation in its own right.
This was, in large part, thanks to membership of KERU. The booming economy itself was sustained by foreign multinationals and investors showing interest in the blank canvas, incentivized by low tax rates Taoiseach O'Neill had put in place. Together with investment from Evacasia itself, Tírnua gradually grew into what it is today.
The departure from KERU is detrimental to Tírnua. Without these foreign investors, and the multinationals, on top of a possible Evacasian recession, the Republic faces a complete catastrophe. Not just an economic one, but a societal one. The rapidly growing middle class may have their savings made worthless, their income cut, and their taxes hiked. The lower classes may have to survive without Government programs, as austerity becomes the focus. Upper classes too may face a decline in their luxury, as the re-imposing of tariffs causes luxury goods to skyrocket in cost.
All in all, Tírnua is in a tough spot.
And that is precisely why they voted to remain. By an incredible margin, in fact. The end result of the Tírnuan vote was 72% remain, 28% leave. Despite this, the extremely close vote in Evacasia drags Tírnua towards leaving, against the wishes of her people.
Taoiseach O'Neill and his party, The Tírnuan National Party, are faced with an arduous future. Their unenviable task is to push Tírnua into a depression, deny the people of what they voted for, and lose all respect and admiration of the citizens.
Though there is another option. A more radical option. One that wasn't on the ballot, but has been in people's minds since the very beginning. Perhaps if Tírnua were to just go their own way, the Tírnuan Tiger could roar on for years to come. Perhaps if they gained independence, they could at last achieve the greatness their forefathers had sought after for centuries.
The Evacasian Government, though interested in pursuing ties with the MSET at some later point, declines the invitation. The Government appear apprehensive about entering another economic pact so soon after deciding to leave KERU.

RP: Election of 2134
Today, the Schwypian election results were counted nationwide to determine both the next President of the Republic and to observe Parliamentary changes. In a stunning show, Conservative candidate Edwin Hoffman, a prestigious former government and political science professor turned political analyst, won the election for his party against incumbent Britain Progressive Faith Holtzer. The Conservative party also saw a major boost in Parliament seats, but most peculiarly, the Nationalist Party, which until now had been one of the smaller parties, has taken over 50 seats, marking a significant change in Schwypian politics. President Hoffman has also appointed many Nationalist Party politicians to his cabinet, including one General Alphonse Hunt as his Defense Minister.
((OORP: I will address some other stuff in my next post, but I wanted to get this out there before I'm busy again.))

RP: A State of Mourning
Earlier today, the scheduled speech from Empress Mira was strangely halted. People across the nation tuned in to find out what was going on. A couple hours later, Civilians heard this horrifying message.
“Ladies and Gentlemen, I regret to inform you that today, Empress Mira has passed away. The cause of death is currently not known. This country mourns the loss of a great leader. 25 Year old Princess Emily will become Empress and will most definitely keep this country on a sturdy and bright path.”
Across the Country, civilians began mourning the sudden loss of Mira. A State Funeral will be held in the Capital, then she will be buried in her home State of New Iowa. Now-Empress Emily has taken charge of the nation. A state of mourning has been declared for the entire country. All flags have been ordered to be lowered to half-staff. A Funeral for the Empress will be held in the Empress’ home state of New Iowa. A national moment of silence has been held in respect of the Empress and her accomplishments.
(OOC: Candensia gave me permission to have the royal family, specifically Emily and Mira to age up to the point where Emily becomes Empress.)
(OOC 2: anyone can respond to this if they’d like)
Esolda sends condolences to Empress Mira. She sends Roses.
Crown Prince Napoleon Wishes to attend Funeral. Hemlock wishes to Virtually attend Funeral.
