Viva la Revolution?
With the recent request by the government of Isshiki to arrest Jaeig Kang, a former diplomat turned Tuaran separatist, the Tariskiya administration faces a difficult decision, while the national elections loom just over the horizon. Given the already fairly controversial response to the ethnic violence occurring in Plagyorasia barely a month ago, the president has chose to remain silent on the issue for the time being, though various government officials have already chose a stance on the issue, predominantly in support of the Tuaran Republic, citing potential ethnic violence and the right to self-determination, amongst other common rationales. Alongside public statements by politicians, the general public were also quick to share their opinion on the issue, with posts and responses ranging from "If every county and city was allowed to secede from their nation, Kiyortza would still be a mess of rivaling states" to "If a government is afraid of a few separatists, then the separatists are right." Even with all the fierce online debates and memeing of the situation, however, one opinion remains undebated: Kiyortza needs to do more about the troubles of the world than only denouncements and attempts at persuasion.
Excerpt from a series of interviews on the 2021 Lisvonya conflict, by V24 News Network. The interview of Marine Corporal Fredd Iasperitt, an IFV commander with the N°8 Amphibious Battalion (Naval Infantry Corps) takes place in early June, 2021. The interview is conducted by Ioanna Greer.
'Aye, 'bout a week in, that's when we really got to start putting the hurt of them'
*Adjusts himself in his chair*
'bout the end of the first week, once the Paras arrived, it all started to change. Now, they call us wet legs'
*He looks down somewhat uncomfortably*
'We call them...well, Miss, it's an old rivalry, paratroopers and marines, and some-those names aren't right for the good viewers of your show. They saved our *BEEP* out there though, aye, they truly did...not that I'd ever tell one too their face. We were giving the Shaunties all kinds of hell, I can tell you that, they paid volumes for every parking lot and street, we piled them high...But you can't outfight scarcity of ammunition, or fuel, or tourniquets. Once 6th Air Assault landed, it felt like they brought half the Army's depot with them.
Then? Well then, we were starting to get orders to push forwards; words, terms like 'advance to', 'engage with', and 'capture' started making their way into the briefing sessions, it had felt like forever since we'd read that word, 'Advance'.'
And we surely did, too, took the fight right back to the Shaunties. News was gettin' good. The Krenyans had *BEEP* finally found their balls and were holding the line, and those S.U boys were pouring in to the North and South, piling on the pressure...and goddamn, you ever hear the term air supremacy? Well we most certainly had a surplus of that let me tell you, lady. Not a moment went by, day or night that fast air wasn't moving overhead; ours, Air Force and Navy fliers, bless those boys, I know half of them were flying on nothing but willpower and and Lisvonyan energy drinks...hell those things glowed like they were brewed in Jeseko...but it wasn't only our planes; Gadorians, the Krenyans, the Kistolians, Agarn, Bak, Qazhshavan...hell if you heard jets, you could a chuck dart at a map of the Union and you would have a fair chance of hitting ther airfield it took off from.'
*He rocks back and forth*
'Course...we all heard about Vælenitt, aye. *BEEP* savages. Heard the First Citizen's speech on the World Service, all fire and brimstone like. 'Make the barbarians pay' and 'take the fight to the front door of every Shauntellerine', good man, he had every right to be pissed. And we were, I mean, we'd lost guys, five from the Eighth at that point, hell the footsloggers in Four Commando? Over a dozen. But this was different, the fact they hanged him, kept him up there for the vultures and the looters to pick clean. Surely we were all *BEEP* pissed too and we intended to take the Princeps' oratory to heart...'
*The camera pans out from Marine Corporal Iasperitt, across from them, solemnly nodding, sits an immaculately made up news reporter. The corporal is in full dress uniforms, his pleated trousers clipped and tucked under his stumps.
His wheel chair, chromed and state issued, glints under the limelight.*

Yesterday, an economist from Hindenburg, Benedict Hannawald, was arrested for murder. The victim was an intern working at the firm Benedict was working at, Hindenburg Financial Consulting Ltd., named Cäcilie Proch. Benedict killed her through defenestration, the act of throwing someone out of a window, by allegedly by first shoving her towards a window on the 26th floor of the building HFC Ltd. was located on during a heated argument.

Following the plans of the housing extension of Suqai, it made sense for some new highways, and some new minimums were required on homes. Two districts were chosen on the westernmost island, these districts were the 1st and 2nd quarters of Cuirve, one of the official suburbs of Suqai. The area would receive a new 8 lane two-way highway which new neighborhoods could branch off, where currently there were only small ranch houses. The Citizens living in these houses were informed and moved into boarding houses, they were promised modern houses worth the wait. These new neighborhoods would be row house squares, a minimum of 4 stories each, each square would hold a small park in the middle of them too, which could and would be used by residents for herb growing. A person will be able to rent a space with 2 Bedrooms and 2 baths, as well as a large kitchen+living room for $3,200 per month.
Tabuluan Lawmakers Face Challenge
In Tabuluan law, one of the generally accepted rules is that you cannot punish someone for doing something new, even if it appears criminal in nature. One such occasion happened last week, where a teenager lit a firework, held onto it, and then tossed it like a baseball, before saying "strike one!" and then realizing he had burnt his hand. This might not be a problem, if it weren't for the fact that it woke 12 people up, scared at least 40, and started a small street fire.
Tabuluan traditionalist lawmakers are stating that the teen should not be punished. "Come on. Sure, it was stupid, and sure, started a fire, but did he know that was going to happen? Further, he's a teenager. We should let him off with a warning not to do it again and give him, oh, 10 hours of community service," says prominent majority whip M'tioua Ohanouika. "The kid's young and stupid. Plus, all those tourists we have do similar things all the time." As to be expected, the majority has sided with their whip. It would take a combined coalition from all 3 opposing parties to overrule this.
However, this is just the case. The Tabuluan Socialist Front (TSF), Christians Party of Tabulu (CPT), and Unitary Tabulu (UTB) have all rallied together to oppose this. CPT speaker Ocan Oliehou stated today, that, "While children will be children, we cannot allow these things to go unpunished. It does violate a law, disturbing the peace! And arson! If we don't do something soon, we'll start having people doing oddly specific things to avoid lawful punishment." The TSF and UTB have offered similar sentiments.
Still, no decision is to be reached until Monday. At that time, the results are to be revealed and the teenager will either face prison time or go free.
In the city of new cordalez we are building a massive tower called the cordalez tower and it will be a hotel office and rec center and I would be honord if eny of you want to come

( International News - " Heinous crimes ")
| 5th, March, 2 - " Projected tensions " |
- | This morning, a murder overflowed the national and international news, although the murders are nothing new in the world; and more specifically in Isshiki, where there is a crime with deadly results every 44 hours, the repercussion is due to other reasons. At first, the crime was investigated as normal by the corresponding security forces, until the identity of the deceased was revealed. |
| Pjatrik stjpean Ionnes, a recent resident of our nation, originary from Vultesia; is how the corpse was identified thanks to its personal belongings. The corpse was found in Hayama, in the red zone, more specifically on the 346th street of district 15, the cause of death was due to strangulation, although he showed minor and major signs of struggle. |
| A crime against a foreigner is already something that raises suspicions and concerns, but as if that weren't enough, his nationality, and the object with which he was strangled worried the local police, who addressed the case directly to the Senate. The man was apparently attacked in an alley, which of course was not well illuminated; the, or the attackers took him by surprise and hit him on the back of the neck with a blunt object, and then hit him on the ground. Apparently he was strangled with a wire, which left marks on his neck, but what caused fear in the police was what was left in his mouth. |
| In the mouth of the deceased, supposed to be introduced post-mortem, was a flag of the Republic of Tuaran, in which the phrase "Death to the collaborators" was also inscribed. The police are now investigating the local population in search of a relation with pro-Tuaran activists, while part of the army forces in garrison were dispatched to provide more protection to foreigners in the capital. |
| The information was tried to be buried by order of the Senate, however, the number of witnesses, the importance of the case, and the large amount of deregulation in our forces and media, caused it to quickly echo in the world. The revolutionary government has sent a formal declaration to the government of Vultesia, ensuring the safety of ALL residents of the nation in Isshiki, and that it will bringing those responsible for the crime to justice. |

Economist Sues Raketenmann Glass Co.

Raketenmann Glass Co., or its parent companies, Raketenmann Holding Co. and Otto-Bahn Enterprises, has yet to respond to these developments. The suit is expected to enter litigation by Tuesday or Wednesday.
International Waters, Westward
With on and off naps throughout the night Joseph managed to pass into international waters. Slightly tired but alert he watch the sun crack the horizon. "I made it", he thought as he moved to turn the radio back on. "Outside the Empire waters the radio shouldn't cause issues and now provide as a useful tool." Thinking as he prepares himself for the another morning out in the open ocean waters.
Joseph using what he learned in the military to ration everything. Reheated the old coffee and grabbed some crackers while it heated back up. Snacking he dazed off thinking about Vultesia. Thinking back on his school years he remembered learning about Vultesia. How the country is a High Society according to the Hadian Empire. Of course, Hadian school teaches their citizens what they consider worthy countries of High Society while teaching how other countries are Inferior.
Now class, please stand for the pledge of Allegiance to the God-Emperor and Hadian Empire and Joseph will you lead the class in Allegiance? Joseph stood up first following the rest of the class all standing facing a picture of the God-Emperor and flag while giving the roman salute, "We pledge our allegiance and loyalty to the God-Emperor and to the Hadian Empire. That we will fulfill our duty of order and protect our Master Race, Our Culture and Our Society until death. Hail Victory, Hail Hadian, Hail God-Emperor Jon!"
The students return to their seats as the teacher begins the class subject. "Today class we're going to learn about a respectful nation called Vultesia. They are one of the few nations in Anteria that have what we call High Society. Can anyone explain what that means? Joseph quick to raise his hand. "Yes Joseph, please explain." Joseph stood up, "It means that Vultesia is a country in which their race and society are honourary Hyperboreans." Very good Joseph that's exactly what that means. Now let us discuss their climate and culture. As the teacher continued to speak Joseph began to daydream what it would be like to visit Vultesia and see other High Society countries.
*Snap back to reality*
"I need that coffee." Joseph thought now noticing the sun has risen greatly. "I must keep focus I must have dozed off for a little." He poured his now hot yet old coffee and lit a cigarette. He checked the compass to make sure he was still on course, which he was. Slightly nervous that his little daydream might have sent him off course. A sigh of relief came across him as everything checked out. "I just hope what I learned in school is true." He thought to himself now relaxed knowing that he was still on course.
