The TechTone Times
Last night, in TechTone, Sam Elegant attended a dinner with members of Congress to help pass his Improving MassModanian Manufacturing bill. Senator Josh Santos pledged his support for the current iteration of the bill, which is a promising early sign of the bill making it through Congress. This bill has been widely lauded by economists from every part of the political spectrum, and is therefore expected to pass through Congress easily. 89.5% of MassModanians support the bill, which is another great sign. We shall see how the bill fares in the House on Friday.
Breaking: The Franconian Government is kindly accepting the offer for underwater power supply from our neighboring Empire, Mydic. They offered it as a response from Hurricane Barney and the slew of electricity issues we have here at home. The Empire has been working with Mydic engineers to figure out how exactly it will be connected to the grid. Researchers say the wiring will be planned "very carefully" and should expect this small project to be done within 2 to 4 weeks. After that, the Mydic grid can be connected to the main grid here in the Empire. The Empress has expressed interest in connecting the two grids to make the Mydic-Franconia Super Grid, the first of its kind. The grid will provide power to all 200+ million Franconians and all citizens of Mydic. The Empress is excited for economic progress and development in the coming months with our neighboring nation and thanks the newest neighbor Khaledonia as well for all the support. A thank you basket will be on the way with over 400 exotic fruits and medicinal herbs.
[Regional Government Update]

The Privy Council has passed a reform of Corpus Juris, the fundamental law of the region. This reform simplifies the text of Corpus Juris and accounts for the recent changes in canon, particularly the move from the regional forum to the message board and the change in starting date from the early 22nd century to the late 21st century. Pursuant to the amendment mechanism of Corpus Juris, this post serves as public notice of the amendment to all members of the region.
The Privy Council has passed an order to establish basic rules for the admission of new members to the regional roleplay, for the regulation of national information and international relations, and to establish tiers to classify countries in terms of their abilities to conduct space travel.
The full text of all orders issued by the Founder and the Privy Council may be found in the dispatch below:

Threads must be posted in the proper subforum, as indicated in the descriptions below each of their names.
II. Roleplay Standards
Players may not make themselves invincible to attack or portray themselves in such a manner that any attack on them would generally be useless, unless they are participating in a Summa Cavea roleplay that explicitly permits such behaviour. Such invincibility could be achieved through the adoption of unusually high national statistics or by claiming to block attacks through unrealistic means.
Players may not use information gained through out-of-character means to obtain an in-character advantage.
Players may not act upon other players without their consent. Such acts include but are not limited to invasions, aerial or maritime attacks, entering into treaties, assassinations and infiltrations.
Players affected by the above two may disavow such acts and have them automatically removed from the regional canon.
Players may opt to enact time jumps no longer than a week for roleplays in which they participate within Ima Cavea and Media Cavea, but other players not participating in the roleplay are not required to honour it. Players may institute longer time jumps for roleplays in Summa Cavea.
Roleplays must have an in-character thread for all in-character developments and an out-of-character thread for all out-of-character discussion, planning and developments.
III. Regional Canon
Content posted in Media Cavea shall comprise the regional canon and shall always happen in the context of a modern tech world.
Content shall not be modern tech if it features anything not existing in the real world, including but not limited to fantasy creatures, manned interplanetary travel, time travel, teleportation and futuristic technology.
Content that features the above in the context of science fiction or folklore while precluding their status as canon events is allowed.
Technology that could be feasibly available in the real world in the next ten years might be allowed with the approval of the Founder.
In all cases of controversy or doubt with regards to what is allowed in the regional canon the Founder shall act as the final arbiter, but he may choose to appoint representatives to issue rulings that can be subsequently appealed to him.
IV. Regional Map
Roleplay in Media Cavea shall be conducted based on the Map of Artemia designed by Justinian Kalominos and presence in the region and on the map shall be required in order to participate in said subforum.

Users may not register additional accounts in order to acquire additional plots. A security check will be performed with all requests to verify the individuality of the requesting user.
Users may enhance their own plots and make useful edits to the regional map so long as they do not take credit for its original creation. Justinian Kalominos retains the right to disavow any undue edits produced by third parties.
Users may not hold multiple independent nations within the same plot in the context of the regional canon without authorisation from the Founder.
You should respect others and remember that we come here to have fun. That means no insulting or inciting others, no posting personal information and no spamming.
When we roleplay we are doing collaborative storytelling. It will ruin the story if you make yourself immune to attacks, attack others without asking for their permission first or do anything that gives you an unfair advantage over others.
When roleplaying in Media Cava, the rule of thumb is that if it does not exist in the real world, then you cannot use it. You only get a pass if you use unrealistic stuff as part of your national myths and legends.
You need to be on the regional map if you want to participate in Media Cavea. You must apply on the requests thread and remember that you only get one plot that cannot be larger than 30 000 pixels.
These rules may be altered at any time by agreement of the Founder and the Delegate or by agreement of the Founder and a majority of roleplayers. Changes to these rules will be properly advertised and made with the best interests of the roleplaying community in mind.

during the last months the prime minister martinez gomez has been planning to begin diplomatic relations with oscarliandia it is believed that they will begin relations in 3 months (in the real world 1 or 3 hours)
New Haven Gazette
Today heralded a momentous triumph for NAASA (National Amerigan Aeronautics and Space Administration) as the launch of the space telescope Nightlight was a roaring success. Attendance of the event was both star studded and full of foreign dignitaries ranging from the Basileus of the Mydic Empire to the outgoing President of Sartoria. The launch in the late morning hours saw the most attendees as some had prior engagements that required their full attention. Notably the President of Sartoria, Silvia LeggiŤri attended the launch itself but had to fly back to Messelia so as to complete the transfer of power to President-elect Fabrizio Pellegrini.
After the successful launch a short reception was held back in the capital city of Columbia at Liberty Park. There members of the foreign press and dignitaries alike were able to mingle amongst the various well to do of the NAASA astronauts and political elite of the Union. Tours of the city and other notable landmarks were offered to guests as well as a special tour of the National Historical Institute widely seen as one of the leading repositories of Human knowledge on Vesta. In recent years the NHI had even expressed interest in creating a doomsday vault on Apollo and an additional one on Vesta to serve as legacies of mankind should it meet an unfortunate and untimely end.
At night a gala was held in the grand ballroom of Republic Palace, hosted by President Prescott. Ambassadors from the Union's partners and political foes alike were invited to take part in the celebration as the Union relished in the success of the launch. This last hurrah was meant to help the President in her tight reelection bid in an effort to show that under her and her husband the Union's image was one of scientific advancement, success and international respect.
At this time I would ask that you read over the Council Order as above laid out and understand that the nation of Oscarlandia has at this time not been accepted into the roleplay canon of the region. As such please refrain from attempting to RP them at this time. They have been invited to reapply after adjusting their proposed GIS to adhere to our RP standards.
I don't understand ? .__.
Oscarlandia hasnít been accepted into the region for Roleplay purposes due to still needing to have their GIS accepted. Until it is they canít RP and as such no one can reference their nation in character yet.

Fabrizio Pellegrini was sworn in this morning as the 6th President of Sartoria before a session of both houses of Parliament. President Pellegrini was administered the required oath of office by Chief Judge Roberto Soriano and then delivered an address where he promised to uphold the custom of political neutrality and to remain an "honest and steadfast advocate for the interests of all Sartorians".
Following the ceremony President Pellegrini attended the traditional concert at the Piazza Garavini, where the Messelia Symphonic Orchestra plays music from the various states with artistic performances from each. The concert also had in attendance all living former presidents, the heads of major federal institutions, and the members of the diplomatic corps, as well as members of the public who were selected at random out of those who applied for an opportunity to attend.
President Pellegrini then had lunch at the Casa Baglio with the living former presidents before retreating to begin discharging the affairs of state, including having an initial meeting with First Minister Bonaventura.
Breaking International: Franconians are rather excited in International politics today as President Pellegrini from Sartoria was sworn in. Pellegrini will be the 6th president of our neighboring nation. Congratulations, Mr. President.
Breaking here at home: Power was completely restored on the East grid today. Slow progress is being made to clean up the Billions of Astrons in damage caused by the hurricane. Roads and bridges still need reparations, but road crews are working swiftly to get those done.
Water is receding along the rivers that flooded during Hurricane Barney. Clean up specialists are pumping water out of homes and skyscrapers as quickly as they can.
Some river life is even popping up in some homes, specifically pirhana fish. One home in particular had a school of 50 parhana found in the basement. Animal control took care of it and advises that pirhana fish are carnivorous and to stay away from any infested flood waters.
The tallying from Hurricane Barney is not over yet, some homes are now being treated for mold and mildew. The FE is prone to mold damage due to how much rain usually drops from the sky. So far 7,000 homes have been treated for mold. The Emperial Department of Safety and Well-being is issuing air quality alerts until mold in the area is down to a 2,000 spore count per cubic meter of air. Right now the count reads 3,900. Masks are required in order to be outdoors just for safety. Residents in the area also being asked to get tested for any inhalation of spores and is completely covered by the NHS.
help and more help
more reconstruction equipment and materials have been sent to help in the reconstruction of roads and bridges to help the road team and they are helping to remove water from the houses for the families it is estimated that the equipks of help khaledians have already helped to remove the water in 21 houses

Parliamentary midterm elections are sweeping the nation faster than Hurricane Barney. 53 of 97 seats will be replaced. It isn't looking so good for the Franconian Democratic Party as favorability is on the decline. It is clear the FCP is barred from from this election, but they're rebranding as Party for the People to make their way back into the spotlight. No laws or Parliamentary rules say this is illegal in any way. As a last minute gesture to speak to a younger audience the FDP has also rebranded and become the Liberal Franconians Party (LFP). The Party for the People (PFP) are expected to see a lower than average turnout this election, but laws enacted in 2029 (after the Fuentez Party cheated by having other candidates campaign under different parties making them a majority by 60 seats) state they can only represent 11 seats as a new party. Agreeing to standards on both ends, it looks like the Commoners Party has a good chance at being majority while the Green Party has a chance at second majority.

The hit game show "Leaning Towers" has been canceled as an unexpected accident happened to a contestant. The goal of the game is to climb a tower with removable parts. 38 year old Linda Manning was on her 17th correct question when the tower malfunctioned, causing her to be thrown off and landing on the hard floor in front of the audience. Electricians say that the moving part that made the tower lean back and forth wasn't bolted in or tested correctly. Stage designers say they have been also telling the producers Jat Wallaby and Jordan Zilom to shut down and redesign a safer set, but they only want quick Astrons. The Game Show Channel has agreed to shut it down, but nobody knows if the show got picked up for another season. The network says they will count it as canceled, but just like "Family Man", it may come back better than before.

In January, Parliament will hold elections to 53 seats. It looks like the Commoners Party is doing very well in favorability. The Commoners Party is now being applauded for their leadership in Golden Cliffs and representation around the country. Only joining Parliament 2 years ago it has become the fastest growing political party with 26% voting Commoners in the 2073 special elections. The complete opposite is happening for the LFP and the PFP. The radicalization of the PFP when it was known as the Franconian Conservative Party is making it hard for voters to lean right anymore. The LFP is being scrutinized for how it handled the Cobran Sector issue under the Xemptoworth administration. Some feel the point was never really understood because the Empress asked to agree to technology from 2022 to 2037. The Cobrans made it clear they didn't want technology and the LFP didn't listen and threw money at the situation like always, making it hard for voters to vote hard left.

Parliamentary Elections Update
A recent surge in poll numbers show the Commoners Party is winning in favorability, but the Liberal Franconians Party is now gaining steam. People are starting to applaud the LFP for the international peace and prosperity efforts and efforts to connect the grid with the Mydic Government to gain energy security. Other poll numbers show the PFP is gaining popularity because of one candidate in particular. Margaret Leonas (from The New East) is campaigning for her seat in parliament on a platform the the Xemptoworth administration is spending way too much on social services and energy. She says there is plenty of oil under the Empire that is untapped and can lower the 8.99 Astron gas prices. That view is striking big with conservative Franconians leading to a 2 point gain in favorability for the PFP.
