    NEW ADDITIONS TO THE SUPERHIGHWAY
    New European colonies to be added into the system.


    The new superhighway lines that will connect Arveyres, Eurasia, and New-Zealand are being extended to fit the New European colonies in the area, according to a press release from the Imperial Highway Authority. The new system, which will be called the Demetrian Line, will stretch from the Eurasian Colony of Asticus through New European territory until it connects with the Cytherean Line. The new line system will bring Europa into the superhighway agreement, and will also connect Straticus with the rest of the world, as it's only connection to the mainland is via air traffic. The Cytherean line will also be diverted twice to enter and exit New European colonies in the area, and one of the colonies will build a tunnel which will connect to Asticus and then into the Athene line which will connect to the NZ-Eurasia superhighway. There is likely to be tolls for entering different countries, but the cooperating governments have said that the fines will be minimal.

    The current construction of the highways is going along at a successful rate, and the construction of the underwater tunnels is going faster than expected. "At this rate, we may actually finish the tunnels before the other highways are done!" said Chief Engineer Claudius Aelianus in a phone interview. "We overestimated how far down we would actually have to go, and the rock is much more porous than originally thought. Obviously, this means we will need to reinforce the tunnels against the weight of the water, but it's significant progress." The connecting span from Straticus to New Dover will be an over-water bridge, as the span is shorter than other areas, allowing for a typical suspension bridge to be built.

    NEW SPACE COLONIES TO BE BUILT
    Several new space stations, lunar and martian colonies, and tethers to be built.

    Urbem Sol
    The Emperor announced today that the Imperial Government will begin pursuing increased colonization of space, and that new tethers and space colonies will be constructed throughout near-Earth orbit and the moon, with plans to increase the size of the colony on Mars. The new plans indicate that there will be additions made to the current space station that the Ausona tether attaches to, and that there will be several new tethers built throughout the Empire. New space stations and colonies will be built in the Earth's orbit, specifically to accommodate an increased colonial presence. So too will more colony ships such as the Aegis Fate be constructed, and the Imperial Navy has plans to construct defensive platforms to protect Eurasia from orbit. Other plans include the development of Imperial colonies on Mars and the Moon, both of which will involve expansion. The Lunar colonies are notoriously smaller than other nation's, mainly due to the Imperial Colonial Authority focusing more on the development of spacecraft and the establishment of Martian and orbital installations. Now however, the proper funding has been allocated and the ICA announced that they plan to increase the population of the colony from 20,000 to 100,000 and increase its size three-fold. The Martian colony will also receive an upgrade, increasing its size and population as well. Plans to establish a second Lunar colony are in the works, and the only real obstacle is that the Aegis Fate is on Mars and won't return for a few days.

    The specifics of the Orbital installations were discussed in detail, and what was gleaned is that there will be five new orbital installations established, each capable of housing well over 150,000 people. The colonies will orbit Earth and be capable of significant expansion. Each colony will be an O'Neill cylinder that will be constructed in orbit via materials brought up from the Ausona tether, and will be able to be totally self sufficient and generate their own gravity. The exact timetable for their inception is unknown, but it is expected that they will begin construction soon, probably in a few months or so. The exact completion date is completely unknown, but engineers have tentatively suggested a few years. Emperor Augustus stated that "We are extremely proud that Eurasian engineers are the first to develop such advanced technologies as the Ausona tether and the Aegis Fate. It is only fitting then that we expand upon our knowledge and collectively head for the stars. The new colonies will be the next step for humanity, and we are proud that Eurasians are leading the way."

    The new colony ships which will be developed will be constructed in the Ausona tether space station, which is quickly becoming the ad hoc Terran Federation shipyard. Initial plans call for the construction of around five new ships, whose names have not been released. However, their development will spur a new era of colonial growth and exploration, with plans to increase the colonial presence on Mars.

    THANKS, I TAKE THE PLANE
    Tarajani airlines expand activities all over the world


    Eindhoven.
    For a country based on tourism, it was only natural to develop a strong attitude toward airline transportation.
    And, indeed, this has always been the case for New Tarajan: KLM, the historical national airline carrier, was founded in 1913, one of the first of the world.
    Now, with the government actively pursuing a new revitalization program of the Tarajani tourist sector, also the main airline companies decided to take their role in this quest.
    In a joint press conference held at the company HQ in Eindhoven, KLM announced, through its CEO, Rashid Van Hekkel, the decision of the company to expand its activities further in the international sector "through the use of well-chosen, strategically important, hubs in many countries."
    Agreements will be negotiated with "all the Imperial States, and Duresia, Zackalantis, Antanares, even in UPS countries such as New-Zealand, Eurasia and Europe" in order to acquire specific terminals. The main destinations to be strenghtened will be Astana, Eindhoven and Alleskandberg, where the local governments are also preparing plans for expansion and renovation of the airports, which will be directly financed by the company as well.
    But, most importantly, KLM will expand its activities in Matanya, where it hopes "to open soon a first hub reserved to Tarajani destinations".
    But it will not be alone: Emirates, the main private Ashari airline company, announced yesterday that it will participate to this program, also financing the construction of the new Matanya Västroved International Airport.
    "We have expressed our enthusiastic support for the project to the Matanyan Government since it was announced" Emirates CEO Roxanne Al Din said: "And we decided to contribute to its construction through a direct investment. This could be a wonderful occasion for both the Imperial States and Matanya to strengthen their ties."
    Emirates is recently pursuing an aggressive program of expansion and renovation: through new airplanes, new staff, an increase of hubs and destination, the company is confirming itself as a leader in the sector.
    With an emphasis to luxury, and a strong attention to the needs of businessmen and middle-class and high-class riches, Emirates has seen a constant increase in its revenues due to a solid reputation of a safe, reliable, and prestigious company.

    Characteristics shared also by the other main Ashari airline company, Etihad, which also decided to join the new program of investments (which will be coordinated by the NTIA, the New Tarajan Investment Authority).
    Etihad recently invested in the renovation of its fleet, with the acquisition of new luxury planes which now are famous all over the world for their comfort and efficiency.
    It was also the first company (followed recently by both KLM and Emirates) to introduce luxury suites on board its planes, where passengers can enjoys all the comforts of an hotel...while flying.

    ONE ESAMIR IS BORN
    First airline alliance of the world between New Tarajan and Matanya


    But there were more important announcements during the press conferences of the three airline companies.
    Indeed, KLM, Emirates and Etihad have signed few days ago an agreement with Matanya Airlines, the main airline carrier of Matanya, under the auspices of both the Tarajani and Matanyan governments, for the birth of the first airline alliance of the world, with the appropriate name of OneEsamir.
    "This is a great day for the airline sector" commented KLM CEO Van Hekkel "Through this alliance, Tarajani and Matanyan airlines will strengthen their cooperation, greatly increasing also the efficiency of the service, which is always our main concern. Our passengers will have the opportunity to plan their flights enjoying the collaboration of the four most important airlines of the world."
    Common and shared investments, shared hubs and terminals, unification of services to clients: these are only few of the features of the new alliance.
    The main HQ of OneEsamir will be in New H̱aifa, Matanya, a strategic hub for international air transportation, with two subsidiary seats in Eindhoven and Hammad.
    Also the financial world welcomed very favourably the new alliance: Eindhoven registered a sudden increase of value for KLM, Emirates and Etihad. Economists confirm that probably this alliance will be a milestone in the expansion of Tarajani and Matanyan activities in the field, and a great contribute to the development of new links between countries all over the world.

    NEW RAIL LINE?
    Possible new rail line agreement in the works.


    A leaked memo from the Ministry of Transportation has hinted at the possibility of a new rail line in Mediterranea and Terra Australis, sources indicated today. The deal is supposedly being negotiated between the founders of the newest and longest series of superhighways in the world, New-Zealand, Eurasia, Arveyres, and New Europe, and will likely follow a similar route to the current highway systems being built. There has been no official announcement of a deal at this time, but the memo would suggest that the new rail line, which will be known as "Trans-Mediterranea Lines", will have shared ownership between Eurasia, New-Zealand, Arveyres, and New Europe. No word yet as to whether it will be a freight, passenger, or mixed line, but it is safe to assume that there will be an official announcement soon.

    The memo also stated that the new superhighways have already provided a massive amount of new, "shovel ready" jobs for citizens from all four nations, as the ambitious project will require a great deal of manpower to complete.

    OUTBREAK UNFOLDING IN ANIMUSTUS
    Ministry of Health: The situation is being dealt with.


    Animustus
    Reports by various news sites have been validated today by the Ministry of Health, which acknowledged that there has been an outbreak of a hemorrhagic fever in a rural village in Animustus, which has already reportedly claimed the lives of five people. The virus has, as of yet, not been identified, but the Ministry has stated unequivocally that  "The fatalities are due to a lack of proper medical care and not indicative of the lethality of the virus." However, some have expressed concern that the virus may have spread further than was originally anticipated. The virus itself has, as stated, not been identified, but several experts have speculated on the matter, suggesting that it could be some form of Ebola virus, Marburg virus, or an as-of-yet unidentified new genus. However, the Ministry was able to confirm that it is indeed a filovirus. "We are still running a battery of tests, but we can confirm it is of the family filoveridae."

    The village where the outbreak was first encountered was in Lindum, a remote settlement high in the mountains of the province. It is made up mostly of native peoples, although Animustus itself has a high presence of Eurasians. The province is no stranger to infectious diseases, being the last Imperial territory to eradicate smallpox, as late as 1980. The Ministry of Health has declared a quarantine of the village and the surrounding area, and so far has refused foreign press or even foreign medical volunteers entry. The Imperial Army has also sent members of the Imperial Military Institute for Infectious Diseases, or IMIID, to aid in the situation, and has also sent soldiers to establish checkpoints and other measures to continue the quarantine. Patient 0 for the outbreak, whose name has not been released, was stated to have come down with the illness after going on a hike in the mountains, whereupon he came home feverish and confused, only to slip into a coma shortly there after and die from, what the first doctor on the scene called, "massive internal hemorrhaging, unlike anything I've ever seen." The rest of the fatalities died in similar manners, and it is unknown if the virus can survive airborne or not.

    Ministry of Civil Defence And NZDF Rapid Response Teams Mobilized





    While there is no official news yet, the Ministry of Civil Defense this morning mobilized all it's personnel and has placed Border Control and the District Health Boards on high alert. On top of this the NZDF has mobilized it's rapid response teams, citing an imminent biological threat. From what we can tell, the situation in the Animustus Region seems to have deteriorated. We will keep you updated as we learn more about the situation. 

    Update : Worrying But Still No Details


    Both the Minister of Civil Defence and Commander Shireen Jameson of the NZDF (In charge of the Rapid Response Teams) joined us on the midday news via video link. Both remained adamant that the situation was under control, but did confirm that the mobilizations were in response to the Animustus outbreak. However, their backgrounds told a different story. The rush at which the workers were moving clearly indicated at a serious situation. While both attempted to calm the public, their efforts were futile as the actions of their respective agencies sent a strong message to the public. Something big was happening, and as a result supermarkets were flooded with civilians attempting to stock up on supplies and buy CD Approved Emergency Kits, with some companies even going as far as to let their workers out early. Regardless, we still have no details as to exactly what is going on. 

    Update : Breakthrough At Last!

    As some of you may know, in NZ it is technically legal to use a scanner and listen in on any encrypted radio communications, such as that used by police officers on non vital conversations. One of our radio monitors managed to stumble on a conversation between two unsuspecting police officers. 

    " A: Hey *****, have you read the Civil Defence Report we just got sent? That's some scary stuff aye? 
      B: Oh yea, I'm reading it right now. 'Subjects suffer sever hemorrhaging and show signs of extreme psychosis'. What does that mean? 
      A: That means their going mental man. Dude, read the rest. 
      B: 'Subjects are covered in numerous rashes and bruises, and seem to have no recollection of their old selves. They are seen walking around in a somewhat dazed yet extremely panicked state. Upon sight of a non infected, they seem to be overcome with extreme aggression."... 
      A: Sounds like something staight out of the walking dead aye? 
      B: Yea man, 'Recently infected persons tend to succumb to the virus in hours, going from normal to comatose very rapidly. Early victims seem to retain their normal mentalities, however upon waking up from their coma, the psychosis has completely taken over.' 
      A: Bro, this is the scariest bit 'Groups of infected are seen congregating in groups and tend to pass on the infection by trading bodily fluids with uninfected, typically through bites. It is likely that the disease itself is an extremely aggressive mutation of the Ebola virus and is capable of transmission through water'
      B: 'It is yet unknown what level of viral concentration is required to have an effect, but there is a good chance that the virus could spread rapidly through the region and globally however, The Social Democracy is still unaffected due to all water uptakees from the water bodies near Eurasia being shut down since the disease was first observed. Currently all water is sourced from the western coast and undergoes exceptionally rigerous purification processes. However the nation remains under imminent threat of a epidemic.' 
      A: Dude, this **** just goes on for pages. This is mental. How have they been keeping this a secret for so long. 
      B: I don't know man, but I'm definitely getting my family out of here. It actually looks like a zombie apocalypse down there. These satellite photos don't lie man. 
      A: **** bro. What a time to be alive aye? I wonder if they have a leader and can coordinate attacks like in the movies. 
      B: Don't even joke man, that's not funny! This is serious! 
      A: Yea, yea I know. I say we just nuke the place. Don't take any risks. 
      B: And what if the nukes mutate the virus or something bro? 
      A: **** man, I don't know. - Oh got to go man, we've got reports of an erratic driver on SH22. Later bro. 
      B: Later man. "

    Obviously the situation is just as serious as we imagined. That is all for now, but we at the news office have no idea how to respond to this. Honestly, we're all shocked and quite scared, no doubt you'll be the same. This is us saying stay safe and stay sensible. We might be in a tough spot right now, but the best thing we can do is listen to our government and follow what Civil Defense tells us to do, they're obviously doing their best to keep us safe if the water report is anything to go by. And to the Government, we ask you to come clean. The public need to know what's going on.

    MILITARY DEPLOYED TO ANIMUSTUS
    Civil Justitium declared in the province; Ministry of Health denies rumors of airborne strain.


    Animustus
    The Ministry of Civil Defense has declared a state of Civil Justitium, or a State of Emergency, in the Province of Animustus after the quarantine around the village of Lindum failed earlier this week, allowing the spread of the viral pathogen into neighboring areas. The declaration of Civil Justitium has lead the Ministry to deploy elements of the Imperial Military into Animustus in an attempt to halt the spread of the infection, often with the ability to use lethal force if necessary. The outbreak itself has spread rather rapidly throughout Animustus, especially after the initial quarantine of the village failed and the small military cordon was forced to withdraw. The Animustus Central Airport and all roadways into and out of the province have been ordered closed by the Civil Defense Ministry, and armed military personnel have been enforcing a strict no-entry and no-exit ordinance throughout the area. The Ministry did release a statement on the matter, saying "The declaration of Justitium is for the safety of the public. All persons resident herein should comply with the orders of the Imperial Army and the Ministries of Health and Civil Defense. Failure to do so will result in detention and relocation. Thank you." The Imperial Military has been evacuating some areas of Animustus, but stringent health requirements are in place, and many people have been turned away for various reasons.

    Reports on the nature of the virus itself have been vague at best, with one Kiwi major news site claiming that it had reports on a conversation between two NZDF soldiers. The Ministry of Health has attacked these claims head-on, stating "There is no evidence of widespread psychosis in the infected. Some do awaken from their comas and become agitated and sometimes violent but it is not the vast majority of them. We can confirm that this is indeed an Ebola virus, although its exact classification is unknown at this time " The Ministry did not comment on the number of fatalities caused by the virus, but independent sources and contacts within the military have said the death toll could be as high as "several hundred" at this point. When pressed for a comment on how the quarantine was broken if the infected are not violent, the Ministry refused to comment.


    Imperial Military operations in the mountains where the virus first infected humans have been classified and kept secret, but locals have reported that heavily armed soldiers have been seen heading into the area. In Animustus itself, as was reported above, the Military has been evacuating people from the area, but reports of sporadic fighting in the city between the police and "riotous" crowds have been reported.

    NEW TARAJAN CONCERNED ABOUT VIRUS SPREAD
    Assistance offered to Eurasia

    Astana.
    With worrisome news coming from the Eurasian province of Animustus about the outbreak of Ebola virus which struck a rural village and now is spreading in the whole province, forcing the authorities to declare the martial state, New Tarajan finally spoke out.
    Baron Lambert Kristoffer De Vries, Deputy Minister for Health and Welfare, announce in the a press conference held at the Palace of Government that "New Tarajan is looking closely at the development of the situation in Animustus."
    The Deputy Minister informed the public that "our health authorities are taking all the necessary cautions to avoid problems, although it must be said that the probability the virus could spread further and into out territory is practically minimal."
    New Tarajan also "offered its full medical and logistical assistance to the Eurasian authorities" in handling the issue, although they refused stating that the situation is under control, at the moment.
    However, as the Deputy Minister underlined "the offer is still on the table."
    Meanwhile, the Tarajani Government authorized laboratories and pharmaceutical firms to start researching into a possible antidote to fight the virus, and also to predict possible mutations (with relative counter-measures).


    The RHIELD and the KID (Royal Intelligence Service) are allegedly investigating the issue under request of the government.
    The main question is if the virus has been used (or could be used) by terrorist groups, and how to eventually handle such a scenario with the maximum level of effectiveness.
    Also, RHIELD is equipped for scenarios of biological terrorism: as such, the alert given to the Organization by the government could also be seen as a way to prepare it for an instant deployment, should the situation get worse.
    No comment has been made about the allegations of people infected transforming themselves into "zombies", although many have seen a connection between those rumors and the decision to alert the RHIELD.

    Astana calls for world organization

    But there is also another news about the same issue: Deputy Minister De Vries, indeed, also expressed the intention of the Tarajani government to present to the international community the plan for the creation of a world organization devoted to investigate and solve health issues.
    "Every crisis in the health field" the Deputy Minister said "is becoming increasingly international, due to the links and interconnections existing between countries. As such, New Tarajan believes this is the moment to give birth to an Organization, under the aegis of the United Nations, which could more easily coordinate the single national efforts, and fight the spread of diseases and other health problems."
    The plans for the Organization will be delivered soon by the Tarajani delegation at the UNE, awaiting for an answer of the other member States.
    Meanwhile, the government is evaluating the possibility to create a new branch for SECURS, also devoted to this issue. Contats with the other members are on-going at the moment.

    NEWS FROM ANTANARES


    Not worried, for now


    The Federal Ministry of Health declared to be "not really worried" about the recent virus outbreak in Animustus, territory of Europe and Asia. "For now, we think that the government of Europe and Asia has everything under control, thanks to the efforts also of New-Zealand. We have really few citizens in the territory of Animustus and for now they're safe and under control". Apparently, origin and effects of the virus are not clear. According to an interception of a communication between two kiwi soldiers, the virus could provoke psychosis in the infected people, an effect that was denied from the Ministry of Health of Europe and Asia.
    The Federal Government, in response to the outbreak, has decide to improve all the health security control for all the goods and the people that will come from Animustus and the nearly areas, for precaution, according to the latest statement of the Ministry of Health. All the ships and the planes that will come from the near lands will be controlled to avoid any kind of explosion of an outbreak in the Federation.
    According to a communique of Ministry of Foreign Affairs, several volunteers are arrived in the area of infection with the Red Cross, to assist in some of the medical camp created for the situation. According to the communique, all the volunteers are specialized medics in epidemics and pandemics.

    Car chase


    During the night the streets of Cape Wolf, in the north of the Federation, were theater of a amazing, as well as unexpected, car chase between a grey car, two black SUVs and a series of police cars. According to the local news, there wasn't any death, only a few injured people during the chase. For now, a partially reconstruction of the facts explains that the chase started near the office of the Royal International Bank, in the central area of the city. The chase continued in the main road of Cape Wolf, Edwin Avenue. The cars exceed all the speed limits, warning the citizens that called the police. After the cars overcame the main avenue, they entered in a secondary area of the city, not far from the port. Followed from the two black SUVs, the grey car entered in the port and continued its crazy run, damaging several vehicles in the area, two patrols and one iron gate. The police found the grey car not far from a depot in the dock area, without any clues of who was the driver.
    According to a private statement released from a cop of the local police, the case, after the diffusion of the first imagines, was took from AFS, the Federal Police. For now, any news was released about the identity of the driver of the cars or of the SUVs.
    The entrance in the problem of the AFS suggests that there is something behind the entire situation that, for now, was not explained. Why the chase started near one of the most important foreign company in Cape Wolf? Who were the two SUVs? Why the AFS didn't released any statement after twelve hours? For now, nobody has an answer and is probably that nobody, in the next time, will have one.

    FIRST MILITARY EXPO OPEN IN EINDHOVEN
    Defense 2015 will show the newest and most advanced weapons of the Tarajani arsenal


    Eindhoven.
    Early this morning, King Friederick Wilhelm II and Queen Beatrice officially inaugurated the Defense 2015, first military exposition of the world, in Eindhoven.
    The aim of the event is "to show the most recent, advanced weaponry" of the Tarajani arsenal, for the whole spectrum of armed forces (land, sea, air), to citizens and foreigners alike.
    The idea, as underlined by the King himself during the inauguration speech, is "to give a new space for our defense industry to show itself, its products and its capabilities to the world, and to all possible customers."
    It's no mystery that the main targets of the event are, indeed, all those potential customers of the growing Tarajani defense industry.
    An industry which already saw itself quickly increasing its revenues thanks to growing exports to many countries (including the ever-expanding first military power of the world, Antanares), with its spearhead being the aerospace sector, and an industry the government wishes to further support, through a careful diplomatic support.
    "The newest cutting edge weapons and military equipment have come on display here" said Prime Minister Van Houden, who personally participated to the inauguration "This way, we hope to show to all interested people what we can produce for the safety of their own countries."
    Thus, Defense 2015 is clearly a fundamental step in the diplomatic re-orientation plan carried out by the government after the recent elections, which sees as its main goal to place New Tarajan as a fundamentally neutral country, ready to offer its products to everyone willing to buy them.
    Ambassadors, representatives of foreign companies, and high officials of foreign militaries (no matter if UPS or USC members) have been invited at the exposition.

    Here at the exposition, anyone will be able to take a peek at the newest weapons, armor and aircraft that have been developed for the Tarajani military, some of which are on display for the very first time. With some 5,000 items on display in an area including 100,000 sq meters of open space and 40,000 sq meters of pavilion space, Defense 2015 is divided into 50 thematic sectors, aiming to cover all possible fields of military technology, showing off the newest, as well as some tried and trusted, firearms, tanks, armored vehicles and aircrafts. It even includes an artificial body of water to display items built for the Navy.
    There are also sections dedicated to robotics and space tech, as well as a display of “non-traditional weapons”. These include things with names more suited for science fiction: laser, particle beam, orbital kinetic and microwave weaponry.
    Of course, the exhibits are not all stationary. Viewers will be treated to flyovers and aerobatic stunts by combat helicopters and jets, as well as a “tank ballet” show in which ace tank crews and self-propelled artillery pieces will demonstrate their driving skills.
    Due to the particular orientation of the Tarajani defense industry, aircrafts are heavily featured: the new version of the VaP Samangan, the Saab Gripen NG-2, and many others are scheduled to show their incredible potential over the skies of the exposition.
    "The show’s overall aim is to provide a forum bringing together Tarajani military manufacturers and those who employ military technology in New Tarajan and abroad" the King said during his speech.
    And the goal seems perfectly reached.
    Now, it's time to sell.

    OIA Force Government To Release Documents





    The Official Information Act dictates that the government any any related governing bodies, with the exception of the NZDF, NZSIS and DIA may not withhold any information when an official request is made by any citizen of the Social Democracy. The law which came into power under the Jefferson administration in 1982, simply replaced the previous Transparency Act and was incorporated into the constitution with a 75% majority. 

    Under this law, the government would be forced to release all information it had on the Animustus Situation that wasn't under the care of either of the 3 security agencies. We made a request for the information last week, and today we were, somewhat grudgingly, given a copy of the documents, with the stark warning "The repercussions of your article are on you". Nevertheless, we believe that transparency is important and will explain the situation to you, but not release the documents themselves. As mentioned above, a large quantity of the information is held by the NZDF and NZSIS, which we have no access too, but we have collected documents from the Ministry of Health and other agencies to try and figure out the real situation. 

    Firstly, the situation is under control right? Wrong! The situation in Animustus is rapidly deteriorating, to such a point that the "containment forces" have resorted to killing the aggravated infected. Furthermore almost all those infected experience psychosis and tend to possess the ability to "live" even when suffering critical injuries such as missing limbs. The Ministry of Health itself has declared the psychotic as being "medically dead" and instead hijacked by the virus itself. Frankly, this is one of the most threatening viruses we have ever seen and from the looks of it, the virus is evolving at an alarming rate, with the Ministry recommended "all infected be exterminated and the area sterilized before the virus gets a chance to mutate and go airborne". From what we can tell, the "containment squads" deployed by the NZDF may in fact be extermination squads, but we cannot confirm this. 

    Furthermore, the Ministry of Health documents confirmed that there has been a known case of this infection in NZ, with a recent immigrant from the Animustus region being quarantined after showing symptoms. This individual has undergone a "full transformation" and is currently in a high security isolation institute, where the subject is now being used for research purposes to find a possible cure and understand the disease itself. That said, the Ministry has stated that it is unlikely that a cure can be found, and extermination is the only viable option. 

    Lastly, the documents stated the disease has a incubation period of between 3 and 6 months, an extremely long period. Furthermore, the disease can spread through liquids and food, which means the worlds water supply and food supplies could have been contaminated. Considering the Animustus Region exports corn and other crops globally, it is likely that the virus will spread rapidly. Thanks to the close relations between NZ and Eurasia, the Social Democracy was able to attempt to prevent the infection spreading, starting with the rerouting of water and the subtle removal of all Animustus sourced food products about 4 months ago, however there is still a good chance that the virus made it through. As per the Ministry of Health estimates, the world has around 3 months before the effects of the virus become visible, meaning that nations must act quick. 

    On the plus side, the virus has shown to be hindered by a variety of anti viral drugs, with the Ministry of Health estimating that should the world superpowers work together, a preventative vaccine of sorts is quite possible. In fact, if the world superpowers pooled their efforts together, the vaccine could be ready in as little as a month. This wont help the currently infected and probably those who have already contracted the disease but could prevent further infections. Lastly, though this is more for NZers, the Ministry of Health has apparently been pumping the water ways full of anti viral drugs for the past 4 months, so we should be slightly better off than most other nations, that said these current drugs only slow the onset, we have not yet seen any reason to believe this will prevent the virus spreading to NZ. 

    Now that this article is posted, it is likely that the governments of NZ and mainly Eurasia will finally come clean over the situation and work together with other nations to solve the problem. It seems that the NZ Government did lobby for Tarajani involvement, but was shot down by Urbem Sol. Either way this reporter urges the superpowers to set aside their differences and swallow their pride. The entire existence of humanity lies in the balance and the time for action is now!

    EUROPEAN NEWS - FOREIGN AFFAIRS - TERRAN FEDERATION - INTERNATIONAL INFRASTRUCTURES - EBOLA QUESTION
    EUROPEAN GOVERNMENT REACTS TO "ANIMUSTUS VIRUS"
    Blocked all imports of products from the infected regions in NZ and Eurasia,strengthened health checks at borders to goods and people
    The National Health Service and all public administrations are prepared to respond to the threat,the whole European population will be subjected to a health screening,launched a massive plan to research a cure
    The European Government asks international coordination to manage the emergency and research cure,ready to provide all possible assistance to the affected countries



    CBRN Team of the National Fire Corp,during an health inspection


    The news coming from Animustus and from infected areas in New Zealand and Eurasia,about what is now the media have dubbed "Animustus Virus",are becoming more detailed and more and more disturbing. What appears to be the biggest health crisis of the century is generating enormous concern in governments,in the scientific community and in the public opionion,especially in Europe,as one of its Regions (territorial administrative units),in particular the Osea Oversea Country,it is dangerously close to infected zones. The European Government held,today in the first morning,a press conference to inform the nation about the evolution of the situation,and about the countermeasures that have been taken to prevent a spread of the virus in Europe,or at least to identify and isolating possible focal points. In reality,these measures are taken at the same time that the virus has become dangerous,and they are at full capacity since a long time,although they were officially known only today.

    "The European Government is following the evolution of the crisis very closely and with great attention,and all contacts with the governments of New Zealand and Eurasia were taken,in order to have a joint coordination for emergency management,and in order to be constantly and promptly informed of further developments. Public authorities,at central and local level,have been promptly alerted and organized, all necessary measures have been taken. Our primary interest is to ensure the safety of all citizens in Europe and prevent the spread of the virus." These are the first words of the President of the Council of Ministries,Martin Schulz,who then continued: "We are helping the governments of NZ and Eurasia in every possible way to deal with this emergency, and we are ready to do it forever. Our health institutions have already launched,in collaboration with major pharmaceutical companies,projects for the study of the virus and the research for a cure,which will be coordinated internationally."

    All institutions,at national and local level,health organizations,Armed Forces,law enforcement forces and civil protection forces,were informed,alerted and properly organized,and,according to specific plans,they are ready to handle any situation,while all channels of coordination have been opened. The Customs Agency,in collaboration with National Police Corp,National Finance Guard Corp and,in the case of seaports,with National Coast Guard Corp,has already been ordered to block the imports of any goods coming from infected regions,for reasons of public security, according to the precautionary principle: the goods will be seized and retained in deposits properly equipped,within the Agency itself,before being eventually destroyed with proper procedures for disposal. For goods that are already entered it was imposed withdrawal from the market and the marketing ban: health authorities,in collaboration with the units of the Carabinieri Health Protection Command (National Carabinieri Corp),are already proceeding with the seizure of dangerous products and in-depth health inspections in their places of trade and storage,and in their transport vehicles,at national level.

    Always appealing to the precautionary principle,the free movement of persons and goods,within the Terran Federation and other allied nations,has been temporarily suspended: therefore systematic controls at borders,by Border Police (National Police Corp),National Finance Guard Corp and health authorities,for all people and goods entering in Europe are back in force. It is thorough and detailed health checks,to identify possible carriers of the disease. So at all road and rail border crossings,airports and ports have been set up specific structures of inspection and containment.

    All structures and infrastructures of the National Health Service were reorganized and adequately equipped to handle the emergency,while the medical staff was readily trained. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Ministry of Public Health),through its centers,institutes and offices,in collaboration with National Fire Corp,National Civil Protection Department and Army Medical Command,has organized a massive screening for the entire European population. The national screening,conducted with in-depth and efficient diagnostic methods,will be responsible for identifying possible carriers of the disease,so they can be identified and kept in designated health quarantine structures,to prevent the spread of the virus. All citizens,taking as a reference the digital national database of resident population,has been notified by public administrations of the obligation to present themselves in the nearest health facility to undergo tests,which are still ongoing.



    Research activities in an Health Institute (Ministry of Public Health)


    Meanwhile,the Ministry of Public Health,through its Health Institutes,with an highly advanced network of laboratories and research facilities,in full cooperation with pharmaceutical companies,has launched a massive plan for the study of virus and for the research of a cure. The research will be coordinated at an international level with all the allied powers,to increase the effectiveness and speed of operation. The Government is prepared to offer all possible support to countries affected by the disease,while it seems that highly specialized teams from the European Red Cross and voluntary organizations are already departing to infected regions,ready to bring assistance.

    The Government finally said it was ready to support the efforts for the creation of international health coordination organization,in order to join efforts in the search for a cure,and manage emergency more efficiently. Only with the perfect convergence of the efforts of all the global players,it will be able to avoid the worst.


    EUROPE & TERRAN FEDERATION
    All information regarding the military,economic and diplomatic agreements and treaties that led to the formation of one of the most powerful organizations in the world
    All the implications for the European power,in domestic,economic and international field



    An image of the New Strasbourg seaport,one of the largest and most developed in the world. International trade with the countries of the Federation will develop enormously thanks to the new treaties,and this will stimulate heavily the development and the competitiveness of European industry.


    In recent weeks,the story of the Terran Federation,tied hand in glove with the tragic assassination of the royal family of Atanea,an event that led to the formation of a true republic in this country,and that threw suspicion of conspiracy on European and Eurasian secret services,never occurred,and with fears of military escalation with SECURS,then proved to be unfounded,has shaken the international scenario.

    As many analysts expected,the Terran Federation is reality,as confirmed by the publication of official treaties,and by the news of accession of the different member countries (at the time Europe,Eurasia,New Zealand and Atanea). It comes as an evolution of the UPS in a more powerful,more efficient,more effective organization,with better delineated tasks,objectives,stragies and basic structures. The Terran Federation then,officially formed only a few weeks ago,but that already gained the right to enter in the list of the most powerful organizations in the world (comperable with the SECURS,its main global competitor,although formally it is not so),aims to deepen,develop,improve and refine structural links,in the economic,diplomatic and military field,which has always bind Republican contries in the Region,to ensure prosperity and growth in all member countries,and especially to ensure their competitiveness on the global stage,in every sphere.

    Moreover,the idea of an improved cooperation between Republican countries,the idea that the UPS was a good starting point,but it went further evolved into something bigger and more ambitious,has not born recently. The first diplomatic contacts between the four great powers that now form the Federation have started just after the liberation of Atanea from the dictatorship of Snow. The total success of the military campaign,coordinated between the countries of the UPS,which allowed to release an entire people from the yoke of a cruel dictatorship,and especially the massive humanitarian,economic and state-building efforts,which made it possible to reconstruct a whole nation,to make it in a short time one of the major global powers,did believe the leadership of the four countries that now form the Federation that the benefits of improved cooperation could go far beyond that.

    Now this project,the Terran Federation,has become tangible and concrete reality,and fears that wanted it tied to some kind of global war were finally discredited. Analysts believe that the Federation will bring greater stability to the global level,and will allow massive sustainable economic,social and technological development,unprecedented,in member countries. Furthermore, the new organization will be a force in more available for the resolution of global issues,from those related to transnational organized crime to environmental issues.

    But let's look closely at the content of the treaties,that all analysts consider it a huge success for European diplomacy and of all member countries,and the implications for Europe.



    Thanks to the free movement of persons, the European tourism will benefit from a huge development, but also the world of work will be revolutionized.


    The first section of the Treaties on cooperation in the diplomatic field, and essentially consists in the establishment of the Federation Diplomatic Council. It is a kind of permanent diplomatic channel between the governments of the four member countries,with connecting structures in the individual countries,and will be responsible to coordinate and integrate their actions,policies and strategies in international and internal field. This is important especially in terms of foreign and economic policy,as the member countries of the organization will move collectively in a perfectly,making the strategies more effective and efficient.

    The second section of the Treaties concerning the economic integration among the member countries of the organization,perhaps the largest agreement of this kind ever signed in the history of the region. Essentially the Member States have established a large common market and a free-trade area,which provides for the elimination of customs duties and barriers to free trade,the adoption of policies favorable to free trade,and the free movement of goods,capital and services. The agreements provide for the gradual harmonization,integration and simplification of laws,regulations,tax systems and technical and administrative provisions of the member states (it is up to the task-specific multinational technical committees framed in the Federation Diplomatic Council). This will favor free trade and investments,but the standards and laws for the protection of environment and of public health,for consumer protection and for the safety of the workers of the four member countries (among the highest and most efficient in the world) will not be affected in any way,but rather will be harmonized and made more and more effective. The governments of the member countries,in cooperation with the private sector,using as the Council as coordination instrument and according to specific joint strategies,will start massive multinational industrial development projects and mutual investments plans,and will heavily cooperate in scientific and technological research,sharing equitably the results: this will lead to a major scientific and technological progress in the Federation.. With this common market,which has hundreds of millions of consumers,which incorporates the world's largest economies,the opportunities for investment and development will be practically unlimited: this will allow an incredible development of the economic and industrial systems of Europe and the other member countries,in all economic sectors,and will enable the creation of millions of new jobs,creating prosperity and well-being unprecedented in Europe and other countries.

    The third section of the Treaties on immigration. It is expected,therefore,the creation of an area of free movement of persons which includes all member countries. This means that a citizen of any of the states of the Federation can move to another Member State holding a simple identity document without,the need for passports or entry visas (as long as that person is not recognized as a threat to public safety). Border controls for citizens of member countries of the organization will be abolished,while the immigration laws of individual nations will be harmonized and integrated. According to the agreements,very citizen who lives in the Federation will have to pay taxes in the country of residence,and a small tax to the country of origin (both countries obviously have to be members of the Federation itself): this will discourage potential tax evaders from moving from their countries to countries with lower taxes,taking advantage of the free movement of persons. In addition,pensions and social benefits will be transferable from one country to another: thus the citizens who move to another Member State will still be part of the social welfare programs of the countries of origin (they even Member States). Thanks to all this,within the Federation will be created an incredible social mobility,promoting the circulation of ideas and skills,and generating greater cultural integration.



    The President of the Council of Ministries (Prime Minister),Martin Schulz,during the conference that followed the official firm of the Terran Federation Treaties


    The fourth section of the Treaties concerning security and law enforcement. The agreements essentially provides for coordination between security and judicial administrations of the various nations,international cooperation to combat transnational crime,terrorism and illegal trafficking as well as the integration of national security strategies. The agreements also include the integration of judicial databases of member countries and the continuous exchange of intelligence and security information. In this way Europe and the Federation in general will become a more stable and safer.

    The fifth and final section, one of the most important, concerns the military and the defense. Here too,the key word is cooperation: first is created the Federation Military Command,which includes the chiefs of staff of the armed forces of all member countries,with the task of promoting the coordination and integration of national defense strategies,policies and actions,especially in international field. There is also the mutual defense clause of the member countries in the event of threats or attacks by third parties. The agreements provide for the sharing of infrastructure and military information,as well as systems integration,between members of the Federation. So all the member nations undertake to pursue joint technology development projects,related to the military sector,to ensure greater productivity,sharing equitably the results. All this will lead to a significant development of military power and technology in Europe and in all member countries of the Federation.

    OOC: Guys, can I just point out that the virus isn't confirmed anywhere except Eurasia. Also NZ and Eurasian goods should be safe, we have quarantined all the infected areas. Actually, there are no other infected areas, just Animustus in Eurasia.

    CHANGING OF THE GUARD
    Newly-elected President vows Reisal's return to the world stage




    President-Elect Alexander Berg has swept into power, crushing his socialist challenger in the Presidential election in a 60 - 40 margin. Berg and his right-wing Christian Democratic Party defeated incumbent Karran Amarram in an incredibly tight first round and went on to win in the second round in what is a historic first for that party. This victory is predicted to bring the Christian Democrats a boost when it comes time to elect the new National Assembly, allowing Berg to fully implement his vast agenda. Among his many dramatic campaign pledges, Berg has vowed to bring an end to the isolationist policy recently brought in by President Amarram.

    "The state of our nation has largely been a mystery to the community of nations within Esamir. Our President has made us become forgotten, unwanted and mysterious. I will make sure none of that continues. Reisal will be an active nation, we will use our military and diplomatic powers when needed and we will help lead this nation to become the greatest in the region. We will secure our borders from the constant threats of war, disease and instability brought to us by our neighbours. We will peruse new, free trade agreements with as many nations as we can in order to grow our already powerful economy. We will ruthlessly crack down on the black market of our nation, which has grown far to large. And most importantly, we will listen to you, the people, before we decide what the right thing is to do." said Berg in his victory speech.

    The main criticism of Berg is the same all across the board: he is seen as too unpredictable and too right wing, which some say is "the two traits that go together the worst". Before winning the Presidency, Berg was known for interfering in Senate Procedure as a Senator, calling for military action at unnecessary times and introducing radical bills that would be "incredibly dangerous" if enacted. Berg has branded himself as a "compassionate conservative" though and in an effort to dispel critics, he has pledged increased funding for education, a cut to student tuitions, and $1 billion in new funding to create more hospitals and schools.



    Among the President-elects more controversial promises is the pledge to send all prisoners to an artificial island in the middle of the ocean

    "This is a huge surprise for all of us historians." said Don Brooklet. "Never before has Reisal elected a politicians who is so extreme and right wing to the Presidency. Esamir is in for something new."

    LEAKED MEMOS UNCOVER THE EXTENT OF THE SITUATION
    Official documents confirm what has been reported by New-Zealand; no comment from the Imperial Government at this time


    BREAKING
    Soldiers operating as part of the Civil Defense Ministry's "containment" units have secretly leaked memos and orders to this news organization regarding the situation in Animustus, which one Kiwi News organization described as "rapidly deteriorating". The memos, which are mainly from the Ministry of Health on dealing with the infected and involving quarantine measures, are shocking at the least. Unlike New-Zealand, the Empire does not maintain any sort of "Freedom of Information" regarding anything related to either national defense or civil justitium, for various reasons, and thus the leaking of these documents is technically a felony offense, and thus the identity of the soldiers was not revealed to this news organization.

    The first memo is instructions for Imperial Legionaries on dealing with the infected, which reads as follows (NOTE: material that this news organization considered to be necessary to protect identity has been blacked out.):

    Actions in Dealing with Infected Individuals:


    The above document would seem to indicate that Imperial Legionaries have been directed to execute infected people instead of helping them, and that if they cannot identify the person as not infected within five seconds they can easily execute a perfectly healthy person. Further, the legionaries can also execute individuals who are wounded and incapable of response, as is detailed in the section titled "Termination Efficacy".

    The second set of documents is the debriefing of a legionary who was deployed to the original Lindum village immediately after the quarantine of the village was broken. Names have been redacted.

    Debriefing of Legionary Present at Lindum Outbreak:










    Lastly, there is a leaked report by the Ministry of Civil Defense on the current situation in Animustus. It details the situation in Animustus, and it also has records on contingency operations that are to be undertaken if the outbreak can no longer be managed. Due to the situation, some areas have been blacked out, especially areas that relate to military operations or names.

    MYSTERY DISEASE DETECTED IN LISOONE

    Lasel, Lisoone
    This morning, a patient was diagnosed in Karas City Hospital with a viral infection of an ebolavirus variant after being admitted by his/her significant other for a severe fever that began to affect the patient's mental stability.
    Hospital staff are unsure if this patient’s disease is related to the disease discovered in Animists, Eurasia. For anonymity, the patient will be known as ♐-1 (♐ being the symbol for Sagittarius, who bridges humans and animals similar to how ebolaviruses can transfer from animals to humans). A staff member by spoke to the press with:

    This disease is unlike any that we have encountered in Kaevi. Given that Karas is a port city that frequently comes into contact with foreigners and Lisoone has a wet, tropical climate that aids in the spread of infectious microorganisms, we are not ruling out the possibility that this patient does indeed have the Eurasian virus. Government records indicate that the patient has never traveled to Eurasia or New Zealand, so such a case would indicate that many more in Lisoone could be unknowingly infected. We advise the public to take more thorough health precautions until we know more on the nature of this new disease.


    View of northern Karas from an observation blimp.

    According to official government documents, individuals infected with highly volatile diseases are to be quarantined and relocated Hofkostrum Quarantine Center for further processing.
    Further plans reveal that in the event of a mass pandemic, infected residences and the deceased are to be incinerated. During a national emergency, individuals diagnosed by a medical professional to never recover shall be prescribed euthanasia immediately upon request.

    NEWS FROM ANTANARES


    Ingelstud closed


    During the night, forces of the 8th Medical Group of the ARROW Task Forces entered in Ingelstud, one of the furthest city of the Federation, in the eastern colony. The 6th Medical Group, specialized in medical assistance and biological anti-warfare, departed from its base in Targahar the last morning, arriving in the night in the port of Ingelstud. The city, according to the Federal Authority, was silent from two days. Apparently all the communication towers and structures are online, but, for some reason, no one respond to the calls from outside and nobody try to communicate from inside. The Federal Government has isolate the area, trying to understand what is happening in the city.
    Ingelstud, the major port of the Federation in the entire region, was founded over three centuries ago, to be a port of the Company of Trade of Cape Wolf. The city developed and become one of the most important city in the region of the Federation. In Ingelstud are located a military base, several consulates of foreign nations, like New Tarajan and Aloia, an important biological research center and a university that host over two thousands students.
    For now the government doesn't released any information about the status of the city and the journals in the city are all closed. Surely the fear of the diffusion of the virus that hit New-Zealand and Europe and Asia is in the air. Ingelstud was the center of the commerce of Antanares with Animustus and, probably, if one ship with the virus is arrived in the city before the diffusion of the information about the disease, easily it could have infected the city.

    A ship of the 8th Medical Group before departs from Targahar

    Various voices from the Bruma raises to press the government to enact a total ban of all the goods from Europe and Asia and New-Zealand. According to several parliamentarians of the right wing of the Bruma, Antanares must protect the health of its citizens and avoid that infected goods would bypass all the security checks of the country, considering the lack of information about the virus, how it works and its real effects. For these parliamentarians, that could count on the support of a not very small fringe of population after the diffusion of the news about Ingelstud, Europe and Asia is guilty of having avoid to diffuse information about the real status of Animustus, preventing other nations to react with readiness to the problem
    For now no official responses arrived from the government or a representative of the Council. With the situation of Ingelstud in a sort of limbo, it is impossible say what will happen.

    IMPERIAL FORCES FULLY COMMITTED TO ANIMUSTUS
    Emperor Augustus finally speaks on the outbreak.


    BREAKING NEWS
    The Imperial Military has been fully deployed to Animustus today, the first time in almost twenty-years that there has been such a large military action on Eurasian soil, and perhaps one of the largest deployments of the Imperial Military since the Atanean War many years ago. The Ministry of Defense announced today that the 4th, 7th, and 9th Defense Legions will be deployed en masse into Animustus to quell the outbreak, which has been far more widespread than initially thought. The Imperial Government itself has yet again declined requests for exact information as to the scope of the outbreak, but leaked documents have shown that it is far worse than any thought possible. With the reported spread of the virus into Antanares and Kaevi, the initial quarantine of the province appears to have failed rather definitively, with the tactics used by the Health and Civil Defense Ministries being ineffective.


    An Imperial legionary checks the identification papers of an evacuee.

    The Emperor himself appeared to address the issues, stating "The outbreak in Animustus was unexpected and unfortunate, and equally so was the possible spread of the virus. However, the supposed leaked documents detailing the actions of military personnel in Animustus are false, and we are taken aback that so many news agencies chose to report such egregious falsehoods rather than wait for comment by the Imperial Government. In order to show that the situation is fully in hand, I have ordered the Ministry of Defense to deploy several legions to Animustus to enact an effective quarantine around the area. I will echo the statements of many other when I say the following: 'the situation is well in hand.' There is nothing to fear, and I encourage all media outlets to take an objective look at the situation rather than spread fear for a sensational bias. Thank you."

    However, the deployment of Imperial troops to Animustus in such large numbers has lead some members of the Senate, most of whom are critical of the current government, to claim that the Emperor is using Orwellian tactics to claim that the situation is calm whilst simultaneously attempting to halt an out of control situation. The most vocal critic, Conservative radio host and once-provincial official Vel Nepius, said on his program "What Emperor Augustus is doing is an obvious reversal of the facts. If the situation is as under control as he claims, why did he send three whole legions into the area? Either he is yet again wasting taxpayer money or this is far worse than we imagined." These sentiments have been seemingly corroborated by the utter lack of communication with Animustus, and the refusal by the Ministry of Imperial Security for members of the media to enter the province. Indeed, when this network attempted to contact our affiliates in Animustus, the signals were either blocked or dead. When an inquiry was made, the MIS responded "Signals are being blocked for operational efficacy."

    ADMINISTRATION OF HEALTH BREAKS SILENCE

    Narasti

    According to a memo quietly released this morning to public health centers, the virus found in Lisoone appears to match the one originating from Eurasia.
    The AoH has authorized medical staff to quarantine all individuals carrying the virus and begin transporting them to Hofkostrum.
    The memo also hints that the disease has spread throughout the Lisoone delta area and that there are two pending cases in Remresoon.
    If confirmed, this would mean that the virus has somehow migrated from Medditerranea to the Kaevi Archipelago on Terra Australis.



    Above is a simplified map of Lisoone with areas highlighted in three colors. Dark red indicates the area to which the disease is believed to have entered Lisoone.
    Red indicates areas where the disease has been found in individuals in either its active or inactive state. Areas highlighted in orange are where there are pending diagnoses.
    The regional government of Lisoone has evacuated Lisel and is now operating from the Lisoone-Loruna Civilian Defence Reservation.
    Air and maritime transport have been shut off between Lisoone and the archipelago, while similar measures are being considered for Remresoon.

    Mayview Peninsula In Quarantine


    The Mayview Peninsula on the north eastern coast of New-Zealand was this morning placed under quarantine. All movement in and out of the region has been halted, and NZDF blockades enforce this rule. The Ministry of Civil Defence said in a public statement this morning "As of this moment onward, all travel within and out of the Mayview Peninsula has been completely halted. The "Red Death" has been detected in Mildred, and as a result the city and it's entire region has been placed under lockdown. All uninfected are being thoroughly screened and moved to a quarantine zone within the region. All efforts are being made to protect the uninfect and stop the spread of the virus. There is no reason for public panic, but the Ministry of Civil Defense recommends a state of high vigilance, and the report of any suspicious activity." 




    The PM Finally Addresses The Public

    The Prime Minister finally took the podium today to address the public. He was dressed in a black suit wearing an NZ flag pin and a somber expression. 

    "My fellow citizens, let me start by saying I am truly sorry. My government has hidden information of crucial information and broken the fundamental promises made by our manifesto. The virus was spreading at an alarming rate, and the Eurasian government was placing heavy pressure on us to keep the situation a secret. After all the virus was in their nation and we had no right to divulge their information. Regardless of what excuses I give. I am truly sorry for breaking your trust. Nevertheless, our secrecy has been for nothing, the virus continues to spread at a frightening rate and we have failed. This morning we confirmed a case of the Red Death in Mildred. The city is a trade city on the north eastern coast of NZ that exists almost solely for trade with Eurasia. Almost all general trade with Eurasia goes through Mildred, which itself was established by the Eurasian military during the revolutionary period as a military outpost. The only real trade with Eurasia that doesn't go through Mildred is the trade of heavy equipment and trade regarding the Chrysler Group, which all goes through the newly developed Milton Ports area in the isthmus between the mainland and the northern territories. It is believed that the virus reached Mildred as a result of contaminated grain shipments from the Animustus farms, this is likely the same case with the Ingelstud region of Antanares. If this says anything, it confirms the 6 week incubation period of the virus and indicates that other nations with trade relations with Eurasia, like Zackalantis and New Tarajan will inevitably fall victim to the red death in the coming weeks. However, I must emphasize that the Eurasian government and Eurasian exporters are NOT to blame for this, they had absolutely no idea the virus existed when the shipments were sent out, and upon detection have taken immediate action to prevent the spread. Sure they were secretive, but they did everything they possibly could to stop the spread. 


    Now to the virus itself. The Red Death is a truly frightening thing. It has a symptomless incubation period of 6 weeks, followed by 2 days during which the patient falls increasingly sick, going from the sniffles to comatose in an alarming period of time. While in a coma, the core temperature of the patient rises rapidly, peaking at an alarming 45 degrees C, which then kills the person, leaving them brain dead. Then suddenly the temperature will drop to below 30 degrees, with the person waking a couple hours later. It is believed that the sudden rise in temperature is the virus attempting to purge the victim and kill the brain while leaving the rest of the body unharmed. The virus then allows temperature to drop to room temperature and then hijacks the victim. At this point, the victim shows what we initially thought was severe psychosis. This is not the case, the affected is no longer a patient, but now a victim. The victim is for all intents and purposes dead, and instead hijacked and controlled by this new virus. This undead now serves the sole purpose of spreading the virus, which can only be spread by bodily fluid, with the method of choice being saliva into blood by bites. At this point, soldiers are instructed to terminate the threat and burn the remains, which itself proves a challenge, with the extremely resilient victim refusing to die until the brain is shot and/or removed from the body by decapitation. Once again proving that the virus is hijacking the brain and using the body. 


    The news is not all bad. Last week there was a breakthrough. Eurasian and Kiwi doctors working in the Animustus region were able to take a recently infected person and counter cool them. Once the patient was comatose, the doctors placed the body in a medical fridge of sorts and refused to allow the body temperature to rise. It has now been 5 days and the patient is still alive and comatose. Whenever the patient is removed, their body temperature starts to rise, proving that the virus is still attempting to hijack. However, brain scans also prove that the patient is alive and not brain dead. Thus we can conclude that placing the comatose infected in a cooling facility and preventing the rise in body temperature allows the patient to be kept alive for a substantial time until a proper cure can be developed. We have already re purposed many freezing facilities around the nation and are prepared to take any infected an place them in stasis until a cure can be figured out. While we are yet to understand the side effects of this treatment, and what exactly the person will wake up like when they are cured, we are hopeful that we may have found a way to temporarily combat the red death. However, the freezing window is very small, spanning only an hour. Should any miss this window, the only option will be termination. Furthermore, it is likely that the virus will have already evolved significantly into different sub species, so it is likely that the virus may evolve to combat this treatment in the coming months. The window of opportunity for us to find a cure is small and rapidly shortening, thus I implore fellow nations to co-operate together to find a cure for the red death before we all succumb to it's clutches."

    Red Death: Minister of Health denies "any danger" for NT ---- Red Death: CDC actively pursuing research for a cure, official ---- Red Death: special anti-contagion plan in action.

    MINISTRY OF HEALTH DENIES DANGER FOR NT
    Government activates special plan

    Astana.
    Addressing the recent statements from NZ about the possibility that New Tarajan could be hit by the so-called Red Death, the letal virus spreading from the Eurasian province of Animustus, Wali Nasim Shatrevar, the Tarajani Minister of Health and Welfare, in a press conference held at the Ministry, stated clearly that "New Tarajan is not in any immediate danger of contagion."
    The counter-statement came after the news from New-Zealand caused an immediate collapse of reservations in the hotels of the country, seriously wounding one of the main economic sectors of Tarajani economy.
    "Those statements were absolutely unresponsible" declared the Minister "Since the very beginning of this epidemic we have taken all the necessary precautions, and they have demonstrated to be effected. Also, the Eurasian and NZ governments previously declared the absolute safety of their products destined to the exports. Should we think they were lying?"
    However, the Minister also announced that "New Tarajan needs to be protected by any possible danger, and the government knows what to do."
    Indeed, in a meeting held yesterday at the Palace of Government, at the presence also of King Friederick Wilhelm, the Imperial Council authorized the implementation of a special plan to counter any possible risk of contagion: by completely suspending any import from the infected countries and areas, increasing the level of alert of every health institution of the country, and the controls over the population, the government is confident that the spread of the Red Death to New Tarajan "will be avoided".


    But this does not absolutely mean that New Tarajan will not participate to the fight.
    "The best prevention is to find a cure to this disease" said Minister Shatrevar.
    New Tarajan was one of the first countries to offer aid to Eurasia, and, although the help was refused, it has began analizing the situation. As such, now New Tarajan is actively working to find a cure, with all its efforts coordinated by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of Eindhoven, a special institution specifically devoted to resolve this kind of emergencies.
    While the Tarajani delegation at the UNE is ready to present to the Assembly the proposal for the creation of a World Health Organization, then, Tarajani scientists, together with their colleagues of the other Imperial States and, possibly, also of New-Zealand and Eurasia, are working day and night to find a cure, using the most advanced technology and equipment.
    Meanwhile, the military is ready to face any possible threat and scenario, as confirmed by the Ministry. Also the RHIELD, which is actively investigating the issue, is ready to deploy its Rapid Intervention Teams (RIT) should a situation arise.


    NT WELCOMES EURASIAN SUPREME TRIBUNAL DECISION ON GCT

    Meanwhile, the Tarajani government, through Deputy Prime Minister Marquis Adrian Van Baltasar, welcomed the decision of the Eurasian Supreme Tribunal to declare the Gay Conversion Therapy (GCT for short) illegal.
    "Such a decision is surely a clear step forward in the achievement of equal rights for everyone" he said "And as such, New Tarajan cannot but send its sincerest congratulations to Eurasia for such an achievement."
    "Our hope" the Deputy Prime Minister said: "It's to see as soon as possible every country of the world recognizing the equal rights of every person, ending a senseless discrimination based on sexuality."
    Van Baltasar remembered that New Tarajan has been one of the first countries to achieve such an equality: the Kingdom has probably the most advanced and liberal legislation about homosexuality, same-sex marriages and so on. In New Tarajan, as the Deputy Minister underlined "the State has, wisely, decided to stay out, literally, of the beds of our citizens." adding that "No one, even the legislator, should have the right to say to the people if their sexual orientation is right or wrong, because, in this field, there is no right and wrong at all. People should be respected, and protected by the State, no matter of their sexuality. This is the spirit of Tarajani legislation. And we wish to see this spirit extended all over the world."

    UKZ BRACES FOR RED DEATH


    His Majesty's Health Minister- J.P Nadda

    In a press conference early today His Majesty's Minister for Health issued a public statement to the nation regarding New Zealand statements regarding zack vulnerbilty to the 'Red Death'.

    it is with a heavy heart i must admit that the infection in UKZ has a high probabilty of spreading. The contaminated shipments from Eurasia had arrived on the island of Lacostatsia. Those particular goods have been placed under isolation however we recevied the news of them being contaminated much later therefore there has been a considerable time lag in between the arrival of shipments and their isolation. My Ministry has taken all the prevent measures it could have taken apart from isolation of the contaminated goods.
    we have also required hospitals to immediatley report any suspected cases of the infection to the office of His Majesty's Crown Representative to Lacostasia. They, have cooperated with us and have permitted us to open a panel of the Red Death Immediate Response Team (RDIST) in their office.

    We will also be working in close collaboration with His Majesty's Ministry of External Affairs so that we can have strong cooperation between our RDIST and foreign nations in order to combat this infection effeciently.

    in the meanwhile Soham Khadatare, His Majesty's Minister for the the ministry of Science and Technology have assured me that they had begun studies and research on this infection and viral strain as soon as it was reported in Euraisa.

    The Commonwealth Health Organization (CHO) is due to submit a report to my ministry and Mr. Kahadatre's very soon. Following the submmission of this report we will go ahead with ouir plan of action.

    As of now i am not at the liberty to disclose anything more right now. Thank you.


    But as soon as the news was released that the infected shipments arrived at the Port of Lacostasia, Lacostasians panicked that the Zack central governemnt would isolate the entire island from the mainland.And panick began to spread, as was evident when protests broke out outside His Majesty's Crown Representative to Lacostasia.

    The people of Lacostasia have always claimed to be oppressed by the zack crown as Lacostasia is a zack colonial territory.

    NZDF Arming It's WMDs For Long Range Strike



    The NZDF is reportedly arming it's short range missiles and even it's orbital weapon placements in preparation of a possible strike. Has the Red Death in the Mayview region gotten so bad that our government is considering launching WMD strikes on our own soil?! So far the Red Death has gone unmatched, confirming all our worst fears by spreading like wildfire all across the globe with almost every single nation with relations with Eurasia (Where the virus first presented itself) reporting instances of the virus. 

    It has been almost a week since the Red Death presented itself in the Mayview area, and since then the region has remained under complete lockdown, with droves of NZDF soldiers pouring into the area, armed to the teeth with full containment gear and combat equipment, roads are blocked with machine gun turrets facing into the region and air patrols circle the border non stop, obviously on a mission to prevent whatever is in the region from getting out. While there is yet no official confirmation, it is probable that the government has decided to give up on a cure and instead cauterize the wound in it's early stages. It was leaked a few hours ago that the Government was considering a "Suppression Plan" which basically consisted of the immediate extermination and disposal of all infected persons. While the ethics remain questionable, the public, largely driven by fear of the red death, are in support of the policy.

    CHO REPORT ON RED DEATH OUT- FIRST CASE OF RED DEATH IN UKZ REPORTED

    As promised by His Majesty's Ministry of Health the Commonwealth Health Organization (CHO) has released a report on 'Red Death' and the most striking piece of news from this report is the mode of transport of the disease. The Report confirmed that the infection spreads mostly via air and wind.

    this effectivley makes lockdowns of entire territories useless.

    zack scientists say that the lockdown of New Zealnd's Mayview region is pointless and will only delay the spread of the disease but cannot bring it's spread to a halt. The zack scientific association (ZSA) has said that the infection cannot spread via wind and air over very large distances and the ZSA has reccomended isolation of Lacostasia from the main land.

    Meanwhile the first case of Red Death has been reported in Lacostasia's Lilivati Hospital. The effected is 35 year old Sanjana who worked with the Lilivati Port Trust the exact location where the infected shipments from Eurasia arrived.
    She has been placed under quaritine.

    Also following the first reported infection the government has cancelled all flights in and out of Lacostasia and is diverting all shipments to the Port of Pombay and Wellington Dockyard. Lacostasians are naturally upset about the same as well several foreign citizens and tourists present in Lacostaia. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has released a approximate number of foreign tourusts stranded in Lacostasia following a RTI submitted by a tourism company in the mainland.
    1) Eurasians = 370
    2) Kiwis = 245
    3) Duresians = 42
    4) Tarajanis = 135

    AIR FORCE BOMBS ANIMUSTUS
    Tactical deployment of bombing sorties announced; Imperial Justitium Declared


    Urbem Sol
    The Imperial Air Force has announced that they have conducted tactical strikes against bridges and major concentrations of the infected in and around Animustus, and that they acted in response to a direct request from the Imperial Army. The Air Force launched sorties against bridges leading into infected cities in an effort to halt the spread of the infection, which also lead to some survivors being trapped inside cities. Military officials have stated that any civilians trapped within the cities will be evacuated at some point by air, but that any who have become trapped due to the bombings are "acceptable losses". The Air Force also deployed thermobaric weapons onto large concentrations of the infected to prevent their spread to less-concentrated areas, which has been reported to be very successful. A spokesman for the Air Force, Legate Flavius Aetius, said "While we take no pleasure in doing what must be done, the areas that the Air Force has deployed sorties against are highly infected and it was necessary to prevent the spread of the infection into populated areas."

    The deployment of thermobaric weapons has been condemned by several peace-activist groups, who claim that it is "barbaric" and that it will only lead to untold civilian suffering. "We deplore the use of these monstrous weapons by the Imperial Government," said the Organization for Peaceful Cohabitation, an anti-war protest group, who has argued that the Imperial Government should seek international help. "Emperor Augustus is condoning the deaths of untold innocents in using these weapons." However, a poll conducted shows that, while the Eurasian people dislike the use of the weapons, they recognize their necessity and support "any action to stop the spread of the disease."

    The Ministry of Health has announced that it is currently searching for a cure, and has made meaningful progress in this endeavor, but that a breakthrough is still a ways off. "The virus is highly unstable." said the Ministry's spokesman, "With the amount of mutations it undergoes when we prod at it, its amazing we didn't end up with something far worse." The Imperial Military has forbidden any access to Animsutus, and those who attempt access have been arrested and detained temporarily. The situation appears to be no better than it was when the last report was issued.

    THE FEDERAL JOURNAL.

    Incumbent DVP President Promises Return to World Stage
    NEW HAUSTAD - The recent General Elections has swept the Democratic People’s Party (DVP), previously a minor opposition member into a position to form the country’s next Government. The dual Presidential and Volksvertretung elections saw a historic loss for the Free National Party (KNP) and a surge in opposition parties. President Amanda Schmidt has already laid out a vast and detailed agenda. This includes abolishing the former KNP’s President policy of isolationism.

    In a speech outside the Federal Assembly Building, the President blasted the previous President’s policy of isolationism. She declared that the President action’s “Caused Vajorr, a nation with great power to slide into oblivion.” She expressed her desire to reestablish the TAP Community, one that was put on hold after the previous President shelved it. “This community will strengthen links between our allies that have rotted away.” With this message, she also promised to complete and extend an ambitious infrastructure reform, her so-called Presidential Hallmark. Construction for a high speed railway had already begun under the previous President but her plan involves greatly extending it and connecting cities metro to the new network. Responding to criticism that she is stealing her predecessors goals, she said, “He had in no way had planned the railway network this far and this part is entirely my own idea.”

    SVV Orders “Red Alert” Over Red Death
    The Security and Defense Administration ordered the nation to go on a “Red Alert” for biological contaminants. The nation’s main agency dedicated to protecting Vajorr from all forms of danger, declared this after reviewing the unusual outbreak occurring mainly in Eurasia. The speed, infectivity and possibility of a major pandemic led to this decision. “After reviewing the information available we believe this set of actions is appropriate with dealing with the situation. We hereby ask the President to declare a ban on travel between nations that are experiencing a major outbreak. We also order the activation of emergency plans for dealing with the virus.” The Ministry for Health and the Center for Infectious Diseases both announced that they will begin deployment in major cities. This will include educating local authorities on how to detect the virus and how to deal with a potentially infected patients.
