Tragedy Stricken Empire

The Empire has suffered a great loss, as Emperor Francis VI has passed away peacefully in his sleep this past weekend. The torch of Mars has been passed to our beloved Princess Caroline. The public viewing will be held tomorrow, with the funeral services being held this weekend. After the funeral, the coronation of Empress to be Caroline will be held.

May Mars rest his soul, and may the sun never set on the Antarcticaon Empire.

Our Condolences

In a public letter written today, the High King, Vercentorix, and the Crown Prince, Heptraticus, gave their condolences to the Imperial State and to the new Empress. May her reign be as long and fruitful as her Father's. The Royal Family has also requested to visit Antarcticao, to pay their respects personally to the Imperial Family.

Central Committee Pays Respects to Late Emperor Francis VI
The Central Committee members, bar the President, who is currently in Shimla, have written an open letter in the national People’s March newspaper. The letter reads:
“We express our condolences to the Antarcticaoan royal family and to the Antarcticaoan nation following the death of the Emperor Francis VI. We wish the best for the new Empress and the people of the nation during this time.”
International observers seem to think that this might be a gesture to encourage peace in regards with Die Riech and to normalize relations with Antarcticao, something which the Foreign Minister has expressed he has wanted to do multiple times.

Sultan's Bulletin

Flag Change to Integrate Rifqa Society
Today, the Sultan has announced the change of the Hagramman national flag. The red swallowtail featured in the flag was the battle flag of the Hagrammi during the Precursor Empire civil war, where the Rifqa had lost greatly. Its place on the flag has displeased the Rifqa minorities in the Sultanate, thus, the Sultan and his advisors (one of which is a Rifqa representative) agreed on changing the red swallowtail to better unite the two major races in the Sultanate.

The Solution for unfit

As the situation heats up in the world , lands of Arnoldiastaniatia remain somewhat calm and normal. People are feeling safe as new institution , 'Rezerwowa Formacja Zaopatrzeniowo-porządkowa' has been created. Its aim is to enhance mountain logistics along with ensuring no uprisings nor dissent will be making transports or occupation difficult. The biggest alteration is that this formation consists not from full-time soldiers , but volounteers (that includes females) and young conscripts that has been deemed unfit for active duty. All conscripts with category 'C' and 'D' are ordered to join local garrision in next monday to Become... 'Kontesants'. Regular Kontesant (the lowest position in this formation) has to fullfill his duty to country that is regulated in local garrision where orders and monthly schedule for each Kontesant is given , along with required uniform. Kontesants have to ussually guard garrisions or streets while Official Police is unable to. This takes only around 12 hours weekly so Kontesant ussually can keep their civillian job , altough naturally this causes them to earn less. This (un)prestigious position also guarantees tax relief that compensates reduced income and other benefits that while are not as grand as benefits that you would get from joining the army , are significant enough to make some younger veterans and women to sign up for this. This institution has been created during last Jeneral meeting , where issue has been adressed , and despite several downsides (another enlargement of Govement and possibly increase in corruption) the idea has been officialy accepted. Coming back to grand meeting , talks are progressing steadily as three biggest blocs are cooperating.

Law to Ban Military Trade Between India and Die Riech Proposed

Various People’s Representatives, likely on request of the Foreign Ministry, have proposed a bill placing a moratorium on military trade between Die Riech and the Indian Worker Councils. The proposed law has been protested by many in various parts of the country, while defended by some as a necessary means to maintain peace and the guaranteed survival of Indian socialism, with several counter-protests occurring.
