A brand new edition of Zeitung is now out, please give it a read if you want.
Zeitung is KAISERREICH's main source of news and goes over the biggest latest news stories. Let's take a look at what's been going on, shall we?
1. KAISERREICH at War!
2. What is TFB?
3. Reorganization of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
4. Absence of Chancellor Volksleben
KR is at war once again! The betrayal of Loushland to our allies in TFB has sparked a war with an allied region Odrya declaring war on Loushland’s own region of The Everlasting Kawaii Empire for his betrayal. His actions were similar to what KR went through during the Great Fire of the Discord, Loushland originally had told TFB that he was renovating TFB’s Discord server for a “new purpose” in actuality he took control of the server and expelled TFB from it taking it for himself. Due to his actions the president of Odrya Rogue River declared war on TEKE and an allied region of it NewLandia. At this time Odrya was no longer a part of TFB but would quickly rejoin. The Rest of TFB would rally behind Odrya and support them in their war as we had all been betrayed by Loushland, including our glorious home of KR.
But KR we will stand strong against those who would see us and our allies harm, we must fight back! I implore all of you to join the Reichswehr to fight against our enemies! To face this threat we must unite alongside our allies to defeat those who would see us divided and infighting amongst ourselves. For we have bigger enemies who would love nothing more than to see us divided, enemies who would love to pick us off one by one for the simple fact we disagree with them and their unfair treatment of us. KR rally to the cause and defeat our enemies!

Both in this edition and the other editions have had mentions of TFB but what really is it? Well to start off with TFB stands for “The Free Bloc” and is an inter-regional organization here inside of NationStates. This alliance was created for regions that were treated unfairly by the rest of NS to join together in mutual defense and campaign together for an end to their unfair treatment. As jokes about among the members of TFB a home for “reject” regions. But don’t be mistaken, we aren’t the reject bottom feeders that are the Fascist regions of NS, we are rejects simple because we don’t conform to the standards of those who have a stranglehold on NS, people who hate it when anyone disagrees with them, or God forbid change for the better from what they used to be.
Now any alliance has a purpose, so what is the purpose of TFB? Well it was created so that regions who were attacked or “raided” by larger regions who think they can control them would have people to help in the defense of their home region and to block these raids from ever happening in the first place. It was also created for these same regions that need a place to find solidarity and support from others like them who face these same things as them.
In conclusion TFB is a place for people shunned by the rest of NS to come together to find support and safety.

Our Foreign Minister, Big Germania, has reorganized the Ministry of Foreign Affairs into three departments last week: On the one hand there are now the diplomats who will represent our empire in other regions as ambassadors. Then there are the analysts who will be regularly reviewing our embassies and allies so we can be sure they are adhering to our embassy policy and not opening embassies with our enemies. And finally, there are the pundits who are regularly looking for new allies and protectorates. He thinks that this restructuring will make work in the ministry more attractive and will also relieve the employees, since not everyone will have tasks that come from other departments.

Our Chancellor Volksleben has been gone for almost two weeks now as of publishing date, so what has most likely happened and what has been done to remedy this?
Many of you may know that Volksleben was Ukrainian, or maybe you didn't, but as I’m sure you all know Ukraine is currently suffering from a brutal Russian invasion under the pretext of “denazification” and the human toll of this war grows everyday. Unfortunately our Chancellor Volksleben lives in the City of Kherson inside of Ukraine, which is currently under Russian occupation. A smaller absence like this has happened before but in only about a day he returned after the internet had briefly been brought offline inside of his home city. This time though his absence has lasted a worrying long time of two weeks.
Earlier reactions from the Reichstag and Imperial Council were worried and simply tried to contact Volks to see if he was alright. After some time work started to pile up and with the swift return of Volks seeming more and more unlikely by the day the Reichstag started to think about what to do with his absence. The first idea was to elect a council to run the Ministry of the Interior in Volks’ absence but after comments made that this would be inefficient and simply an emergency minister would do just fine this idea was the one chosen. Arch-Duke New Hansa has signaled that he would have the time to run the Ministry of the Interior and was chosen by the Kaiser as the Emergency Minister of the Interior. In the announcement New Hansa made he stipulated that he would resign and the position would be abolished when Volks returned.
For now we hope that Chancellor Volksleben is doing ok and we hope for his safety and swift return.
