I'm sorry I haven't been active here. Life got in the way and I'm trying my best to balance it with the stuff on here.
If you all could; please join the discord and join the forums. Both of them are in the WFE and it only takes a few minutes to join.
From here on out, I promise to be more active.
It happens. I'm looking forward to really getting things rockin and rollin here.
Former dictator Vlad Drakos has been executed, under the direction of President Jayson Steele:
"Mr. President, it's time," Agent Zero said as he cracked open the Executive Office door.
Without a word, President Steele stood and followed the head of his security detail, followed by two additional agents.
They led him outside to his motorcade, then took their positions in their assigned vehicles.
The motorcade proceeded along its route without much fanfare. Some citizens stopped and looked, only a few waved.
When the motorcade arrived at Liberty City Penitentiary, the agents quickly led the president inside, down several corridors, then into a sterile white room.
In the center of the room was another small room, a window allowing those outside to see the gurney and restraints on the inside.
President Steele ran his hand over the glass.
"So this is where it all ends. The final death of our civil war. And who's responsible for it?"
The agents remained stone faced, not responding to the president's rhetorical question. One can only assume that Agent Zero was also stone faced under his familiar black mask.
Moments later, prison officers led former president tuned dictator Vlad Drakos into the room. They strapped him to the gurney and then the senior officer spoke up.
"Mr. President," he asked from inside the execution chamber, his voice audible through a speaker. "Do you wish to proceed with the execution of Vlad Drakos for the crime of treason?"
Predident Steele sighed heavily, then looked the officer in the eyes. "I do. I hereby order Vlad Drakos executed for the crime of treason."
"Mr. Drakos," the officer said, addressing the prisoner. "If there is anything you wish to say, this is your time to do so."
"Jayson," Drakos said, using the president's first name. "You led a valiant rebellion. You surmounted the insurmountable odds. But do not allow yourself to feel invincible or infallible. In the end, you're a greedy, power hungry, selfish man...just like me."
Drakos forced a smile. The officers connected an IV to his arm. They each pressed a button on opposite walls. Within 30 seconds, the dictator was dead.
"Into your hands I commend this man," the president said looking toward the ceiling. "Judge him according to your will."
The agents led President Steele out.
S’alright. Life is important.
I’ll probably join the forums soon.
Edit: Also, I’ve been considering some ideas for my nation’s lore and history. If I moved one of my other nations that could tie into that lore here as well, would that be alright?
If not, I’ll just come up with something else.
Apparently Free Libertitus is considering withdrawing from the world assembly:
Liberty City (LTC) -- An anonymous source within the Steele Admonistration has confirmed to the Libertitan Times-Citizen that President Jayson Steele is considering sending a proposal to the Libertitan National Assembly that would withdraw Libertitus from the World Assembly.
The president is concerned about recent international directives that show preference to certain citizens, as well as a recent vote that saw the WA fail to condemn Antifa; which Libertitus officially views as a terrorist organization.
Libertitus World Assembly Ambassador Katherine Harrison would not confirm or deny the rumors, but issued a written statement to media outlets on Tuesday.
"First of all, I want to remind our citizens that the Steele Administration absolutely sees value in the World Assembly. Our planet consists of many diverse nations, citizens, and cultures. That being the case, it is only logical and reasonable to have a diplomatic arena in which world leaders can come together to solve problems, or discuss how to best move humanity forward. We believe this is the goal of all nations, regardless of how varied our ideas may be regarding how to get there.
In spite of these truths, there have been some binding WA decisions that trouble the administration, and should trouble the Libertitan people. When international laws are passed that give special privileges or recognition to certain members of a society but not others, we must stand in opposition.
I, and the administration, fully recognize the importance of standing up for the rights of individuals who are members of a class that has been disparaged in the past. But we cannot allow past discrimination to be rectified by further discrimination or preferential treatment to the affected group.
Further, when the WA fails to condemn organizations that are officially labeled terrorist groups by this administration, we cannot sit idly by while the WA gives them tacit approval.
The citizens of Free Libertitus can rest assured that the president and I are working to ensure that we maintain excellent diplomatic relations with as many nations as possible, while protecting the rights and interests of our top priority -- the Libertitan people."
President Steele did not comment on this issue during a Wednesday afternoon press conference in the Presidential Mansion's Zen Garden, and he ignored questions shouted by reporters as he left.
(OOC: The nation I moved in was Xize aer aneria, which has a role in here. I figured that while I’m working on writing Factbooks I may as well add something to the current rp. If posting on behalf of both my nations at the same time isn’t allowed, please let me know. I’m not very experienced with how roleplay works on here.)
Last night, Kaeten Cektor’s Komm, Fera Mednait, met with Aer Anuria’s Otiy, Zeske Celvfer, and KomJuikio, Verian Xeki. The three had a heated discussion about the potential of an agreement which would open Kaetenian companies and Anerian Yts up to free trade with one another, and allow both on the others’ soil. Some believed that it could be the potential first step in cooling relations between the two nations since their split. However, the discussion proved that the two still have a long way to go.
“We are willing to open our borders to your products, as we have to other capitalist nations,” Xeki said. “But keep in mind that we do not support your rejection of Anurist and Socialist values. Your companies will be watched closely, and we will be approaching this agreement with caution. My priority will always be the health, safety and rights of the Anerian tirten, not soulless cooperations.”
On Xeki’s comment, Mednait had this to say: “A stern word or two is their best weapon, I suppose. I’d like to take this moment to warn business owners to be careful. There haven’t been many private businesses within Aer Aneria for multiple decades, so they may attempt to throttle any companies that gain too much of a hold.”
Celvfer, though a bit skeptical, seemed to be less hostile.
“I’m just hoping we can all get along,” He had said. “Partnership between nations, regardless of ideology, is a step towards the ideal that we seek. Though, I’d like to have the agreement approved by the tirten, or at least the affected Yts, before it’s finalized.”
At a recent press conference, Free Libertitus President Jayson Steele responded to a question about the ongoing trade discussions between Xize Kaeten Cektor and Xize Aer Aneria.
"Of course I'm aware of the talks," President Steele said. "And as one might expect, this administration stands on the side of nations who espouse virtues that are similar to ours -- including freedom, liberty, and capitalism.
I've had no discussions with the leaders of either nation, but I would expect our position is already well known. If Fera Mednait is able to open a previously closed economy to the interests of capitalist societies, this can only be a good thing. Not only for us, but for the economy and people of Xize Aer Aneria."
Looks like we had a visit from some militaristic pests.
