    HER MAJESTY'S POST NOEL GREETING


    The post noel greeting has been a custom of the Zack Monarchy for many years, ever since the establishment of the United Monarchies of Zacklantis.

    The greetings are on the ocassion of the New Year and Independence Day which falls on the 2nd of January.

    The Crown gives the address to the nation after attending the mass at St. John The Evangelist Roman Catholic Church in Browns.

    This year it is important to listen to the address of Her Majesty because it will have many references to international and national happenings, while the Crown's opinion doesn't frame government policy it is extremely influential to it.

    My fellow countrymen, on the occasion of the New Year and our Independence Day I extend my good wishes to you, wherever in the world you may be.

    This past year has been full of ups and downs for the UKZ and the world. But the reason to celebrate is that the UKZ has remained resilient in the face of all difficulties, a testament to the grit and determination of the Zack people.

    We have taken great strides in our Democratic process and given rights to all sections of society. It is now time to focus on the marginalized peoples of the world and fight for their rights as well, especially the religious minorities that have not been given their rights. In my capacity as Queen I plan to introduce the Non-Zack Catholic Peoples Bill which automatically grants Zack citizenship to all Roman Catholics.

    We need to stand for justice in the international arena, I hope the UKZ is a nation that will stand for international law and peace and hold all nations who break the law and illegally invade others responsible for their crimes against humanity.

    Wishing you once again a very happy new years and independence day.

    Long Reign UKZ!

    NEW TARAJAN REFUSES TO RECOGNIZE TEXANIAN REGIME
    Political asylum offered to all escaping citizens

    Astana.
    In his first official speech of the new year, Prime Minister Duke Bernhard Van Aardenne-Gliefen stated what the official position of the Kingdom regarding Texania is: "New Tarajan will never accept nor recognize such an illegal, terroristic regime." he said with uncompromising words "What is happening in Austinia right now is a reign of terror, plain and simple."
    The Prime Minister confirmed that "We've already evacuated all Tarajani citizens from Texanian soil long ago, when all this mess began, but I still strongly advise anybody for going there. It is on the table of this government a complete travel-ban on Texania, which will probably pass next week." Also economic and political sanctions are being considered, while the Kingdom already offers political asylum to all those Texanian citizens who wish to escape their country.
    "Everybody will be welcome in our land, as soon as they flee from such a terroristic regime." the Prime Minister said.


    Prime Minister Van Aardenne-Gliefen before entering Palace Van Geldern.

    The Prime Minister delivered his speech in front of a joint session of the Royal Diet and the Landsraad, convened at Palace Van Geldern this morning. The long-awaited speech was to justify the position of the Prime Minister regarding the war in New-Zealand, which brought a political storm upon his government and the whole country last year. And indeed New-Zealand was an issue on the table as well: while the Tarajani delegation in Velikogovolka, led by deputy minister for foreign affairs Count Ahmad Al'Din Rumi, is working tirelessly, the government maintains its official stance of "complete refusal of any infringement of NZ sovereignty and territorial integrity." The main goal of the Kingdom at the conference and its future foreign policy, is simple: "To rebuild upon our ancient tradition of neutrality, promoting peace and stability through diplomacy when and where possible, and only intervening when our core interests are at stake."
    Like in Texania, where, previously to the rise of the new regime, New Tarajan kept a strong financial position, now completely destroyed; a situation similar to what is happening in Silesia. Also, the issue of the Texanian regime is strongly linked to the future of the Texanian territories still under NZ administration, which is being debated at the peace conference: "New Tarajan cannot accept that such territories would be passed from a prosperous, respectful, democracy such as New-Zealand, to a terrorist regime." a spokesperson of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs said yesterday, and this position has been echoed in the words of the Prime Minister at Palace Van Geldern.
    While the statements of Van Aardenne-Gliefen probably helped in easing much of the worries and concerns of the Diet and the Landsraad, thus strenghtening his weakening position, more issues need to be addressed still. Among them, the concerns, expressed by the southern States, that increasing missionary activity from Morea could ignite further dissent among christian communities in their territories. The Prime Minister didn't address directly the issue, although he affirmed that "We are always monitorning and watching upon potentially-subversive activities against our way of life and the well-being of all our citizens."

    Gov't Reaffirms Support for East Texania

    Minister of State Laura Welch and President of Texania George Moosh at the May 2016 coronation of Queen Victoria III of Aloia.

    ZUMBROTA -- The Ministry of State has released a statement this week, reaffirming the Aloian government's commitment to supporting the government of East Texania, led by President George Moosh, and criticizing the totalitarian government of West Texania. Minister of State Laura Welch echoed the government of New Tarajan in condemning the rogue state.

    "West Texania is governed by an absolutely tyrannical regime. It pains us and it should pain every other democracy to see a former beacon of freedom in such a sore state," Minister Welch said. "Let us take this time to also commend and reinforce our commitment to East Texania. President Moosh has led his nation through a difficult time and it is through their dedication to the ideals of liberty and democracy that they continue to thrive today."

    Welch is the most prominent Texanian-Aloian in modern Aloia, being born and raised in Texania. Another significant Texanian-Aloian was Lady Bird Johnson, Chancellor of Aloia from 1963 to 1965. Matthew Sumner Ford from Austinia served as Chancellor of Aloia from 1808 to 1816 while Texania was part of the Aloian Empire. Ford's memorial in Austinia was one of many monuments in Austinia damaged or destroyed by the rebels in their efforts to remove references to the old government.

    Many Texanians have fled to Aloia as a result of the Texanian Civil War. Some have settled permanently in Aloia, but most have expressed their desire to return either to their homes in West Texania or to East Texania. Aloia has also been funneling untold sums of money into the East Texanian government in an effort to keep that government functioning in the midst of rebuilding their cities and holding off attack from West Texania.

    Media, News Outlets Lambast Coalition Demands

    MINNEAPOLIS -- The Star Tribune's editorial pages lead most other major papers in attacking and lampooning Eurasia and Marquette's demands in the peace conference. The suggestion that received the most criticism was Marquetien calls for independence for the areas of old Texania and Blukon that are now part of New Zealand. While the Aloians officially entered the invasion in defense of native Texanian and Blukonians, they quickly withdrew when they discovered conditions in the area were not nearly as bad as reported.

    Commentators have protested Marquette and Eurasia's demands as "unrealistic" and "dangerous in the long term." Solomon Galloway from the Star Tribune said, "These demands are a direct attempt by the Eurasian and Marquetien regimes to undermine the peace talks. There is no way the other side, or many of the coalition countries, will agree to those terms. Such a demand is childish and contrary to the goals of these peace talks."

    Aloia is now in favor of maintaining New Zealand's control over the areas, under the condition that UN teams monitor the situation to ensure that Texanians and Blukonians are not abused. Ethnic Texanians have hesitantly accepted these terms, preferring that all of Texania be returned to the East Texanian government, but seeing that Texanians under New Zealand are better off than Texanians in West Texania. The strip of land controlled by New Zealand also functions as an effective buffer zone between the opposing states.

    COMMONWEALTH ASSOCIATION GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO CONVENE ON DRAKENBURG ISSUE


    On the request of the Delegation of Chita, sponsored by the delegations of East Plains, New Telmar, Irkutsk, Pombay, Chelyabinsk and Calienete the General Assembly of the Commonwealth Association has been convened in Browns, Krasnoyarsk.

    The Agenda under discussion is "The Question of Drakenburg"

    The main questions that must be answered are, how can the Commonwealth Association help with the humanitarian crisis and the diplomatic solution to the issue at hand.

    The Chief Minister of Chita had this to say while proposing the agenda.

    "The issue in Drakenburg and largely in New Zealand is shocking and alarming to us all. Chita condemns the violence and blood shed that is taking place in New Zealand. We therefore believe that the Commonwealth Association needs to step up to the plate and help our fellow member 'Drakenburg' in this time of crisis.
    While i understand that the Commonwealth Association is largely a cultural one, i believe that remaining silent on the crimes against humanity committed by the invading nations will be a stain on the face of this association.
    What i propose is providing aid to the nations handling the refugee crisis as well as setting up Commonwealth Hospitals and Ration centres in Drakenburg. We hope to see large participation and cooperation especially from our indepenent members and Drakenburg (New Zealand)."


    while the words of the Chitian Chief Minsiter were commendable and insipiring they failed to impress all, with Eucharesto, Ukhta, Relion, Kouty, London coming out in outright opposition to the same.
    The Chief Minister of Eucharesto had this to say
    "While the intentions behind this agenda are pure, i feel that we are stepping over our bounds. There is no need for a discussion like this. If something really has to be done then in must be done through influencing the Zack government. The commonwealth association, a cultural association has no part in the conflict like this. The only thing we are open to discussing is the future of the membership of Drakenburg and which government will represent it."

    UKZ TO HELP MOREA TO HANDLE REFUGEES


    Following the visit of the Morean leadership to Cair Paravel, the Prime Minister revealed that the UKZ will send aid in the form of money, rations, clothes and armed and unarmed personell to Morean border regions to aid with the inflow of refugees from war torn New Zealand.

    The situation is serious and needs attention from the international community.

    The UKZ believes that by doing this we are helping an old friend in New Zealand and a new one in Morea and more importantly serving the larger cause of humanity.

    Riots Break Out In Occupied Districts - "Forged In Fire"



    Breaking News - Riots have broken out all over the occupied districts as the underground resistance movement "Patriots" take to the streets in a surprisingly well organised attack against occupation forces. In the early hours of this morning millions of civilians in the occupied districts took to the streets in a calculated militia movement that saw molotovs, grenades and crudely made C4 hurled at occupation forces and camps. The most surprising event would be the uprising in "liberated" Blukon, where thousands of civilians marched on the main Legion camp in the area, torching buildings and hurling homemade cluster grenades at the eurasian liberation forces. Fierce fighting has followed since, with the well organised resistance taking the occupation forces by complete surprise with their sudden decisive attacks, cutting off reinforcement lines and placing the occupation forces on the withdrawal. Footage has already emerged from the Blukon region where rebels took to setting a legionary barracks on fire and blowing the entrance points with C4, effectively trapping the previously sleeping legionaries in the burning building condemning the 100 or so soldiers to death by fire. In the background of the grainy video rebels can be seen proudly waving the kiwi flag as the building burns in the foreground. Underground propaganda videos show rebels chanting "Forged In Fire", a direct reference to how the invasion and attempted liberation by coalition forces has completely united the previously infighting Kiwi Empire under the threat of a common enemy. For the first time Blukon and Kiwi Texania can be seen openly embracing the Empire and Social Democracy, with the overwhelming majority of the rebels fighting in the region being of Blukonian and Texanian ethnicity, fighting fiercely under the kiwi flag against the overwhelming Marquettien and Eurasian coalition forces. 

    While Federal Forces have strictly remained in currently kiwi controlled districts as per the cease fire agreement, the Social Democracy has gotten decisively more bold in their moves as tensions sky rocket under High Commander Coral Shepards temporary rule. It seems that war is on the brink of breaking again, as the recently reformed and revitalised NZDF have bolstered their regiments and taken to frequent patrols on the cease fire borders. In a show of pure spite, NZDF Snipers can be openly seen stationed right on the border with occupied territories, obviously aiming down their sights directly at any and all coalition forces that come anywhere near the borders. Tensions reached a peak 2 days ago when a NZAF Squadron formed behind a patrolling Eurasian Squadron and locked on with heat seeking missiles in an effort to unnerve the Eurasian Squadron while not officially breaking the cease fire agreement. From the highly organised and well equipped nature of the rebel uprisings in occupied districts, it's almost certain that the Federal Forces have been supplying and aiding the underground movements in their attempts to overthrow occupation forces. 

    UPDATE
    The Districts of Blukon South, Blukon North, Kiwi Texania, Magnolia, and Swansea have unofficially declared themselves liberated while the militia uprisings in the remaining 6 occupied districts has gone back underground as occupation forces have managed to suppress the uprisings and regain control. This now leaves 11 of the 17 districts of New-Zealand and all 3 of the Imperial Districts (Blukon South, Blukon North and Kiwi Texania) back under domestic control. The Federal Government of the Social Democracy and the NZDF remain in control of the 9 Districts controlled prior to the cease fire, with the 5 recently liberated districts remaining under unofficial Militia control. However it is understood that The Federal Government has already been in unofficial contact with the Militia administration and will be working very closely with them in ensuring the 5 liberated districts do not fall back into coalition control. NZDF forces have already run numerous supplies to the borders of the liberated districts and dropped them off for collection by Militia forces. 

    Upon questioning High Commander Coral Shepard admitted to being in contact with the Militia, and even went as far as to reveal that the Militia leadership consisted heavily of Homeland Security Members, remnants of the NZDF who were unable to retreat into eastern New-Zealand during the initial invasion and members of the local police forces and other related agencies. While it is true that the Social Democracy has made no direct violation of the cease fire terms, the unexpected success of the militia uprising will come as a slap in the face to Coalition Forces delivered by the currently very smug High Commander Coral Shepard. It's no question that President Garagen will be having a little chuckle to himself all the way over in Antanares when the news breaks internationally. 

    Peace Talks Stagnate
    Reports from inside sources in the Peace Talks suggest that the talks have come to a stale mate, with opposing factions unable to come to a decision over what is to be done with the Imperial Territories of new-Zealand following the withdrawal of coalition forces. Sources suggest that Marquette, Eurasian and Duresian delegations are insisting that New-Zealand relinquish control of the Imperial Territories while the other delegations opt to instead let New-Zealand maintain control of the territories while establishing a mostly ceremonial "UN Oversight Board" to watch over the actions of the Empire in the territories. It is understood that President Garagen and his delegation have remained mostly silent in the overall talks, with their positions being almost painfully clear since their first speech. We are yet to see how the recent Militia uprisings will affect the course of the talks. We will keep you updated as news comes in.

    EURASIA ACCUSES NEW ZEALAND OF CEASEFIRE VIOLATIONS
    Ministry of Diplomacy attacks New Zealand, threatens to leave peace conference.


    BREAKING
    A spokesman for the Ministry of Diplomacy addressed the situation in New Zealand today, calling the actions of the High Commander of the NZDF "highly irresponsible" and "unconscionably reckless." The Deputy Prime Minister of Diplomacy went on to state that "High Commander Shephard has acted in with juvenile arrogance unbecoming someone of her station," going on to say that "The childish asininity with which the High Commander has acted has jeopardized all that we have sought to accomplish in Antanares. Her feckless hubris has unilaterally violated the terms of the ceasefire accords, and has pushed the world yet again to the brink of war. If the militia uprisings, which clearly are instigated and provided for by the NZDF, do not desist immediately and without delay, Eurasia will withdraw from the peace conference and launch unhesitating offensives to remove the criminal President Gorgonzola from power. We agreed to the peace conference as we believed it was the best alternative to avert further bloodshed. If President Gorgon cannot keep his own generals from violating that, Eurasia sees no reason to continue negotiating with liars and fork-tongued deceivers."

    The Ministry of War also released a statement following the Diplomatic Ministry's conference, saying "In the event that the NZDF fails to halt its obvious violations of the peace accords, the legions are prepared to launch immediate counteroffensives to completely liberate New Zealand and its unlawfully occupied territories."

    The peace conference itself has been reported to be making little progress against the obstinacy of the New Zealander delegation, who an inside source claims have barely spoken at the conference, forcing the coalition forces to effectively debate the future of New Zealand without them while they enact ceasefire violation after violation.

    NEW TARAJAN “DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND,” DECLARES BISHOP AKAKIOS
    New Tarajan “Possible Partner in World Politics,” Rebuts Sultan Ioannis

    Mystras, Morea: With chaos in New-Zealand, a stalled peace conference in Antanares, and—for the Achaians at least—the unusual exchange of Morean-born Achaian prelates in Norda and Nordan-born pagan soldiers in Morea, the Achaian media has come to ignore, or to barely consider, the domestic matters of nations on the other side of the world as uninteresting or irrelevant to Achaian, and Montferrati, daily life. Our high-profile politicians, however, do not have that luxury, and it is arguable whether or not Bishop Akakios IV Doukas, prelate of the Diocese of Mystras, has ever wanted to do anything else but lambast** leaders both foreign and domestic over their policies in contravention of God’s Word and the teachings of our faith. Thus it was that the trial and conviction of a Christian youth in the Federal Aristocratic Kingdom of New Tarajan on evidence broken from the seal of confessional silence, the latest in a series of Tarajani insults to religious worship in general and Christian Truth in particular, brought Bishop Akakios to his pulpit in Kallimarmaro Cathedral earlier this afternoon, explaining in heavy detail the exact nature of the damnation to which New Tarajan’s court system had just condemned the entire nation.

    Bishop Akakios of Mystras has previously commented on Tarajani paranoia regarding Achaian missionary activity, but otherwise ignored the matter in favor of fully-Achaian concerns. Credit: Peiraias Holy Trinity Company, Morea

    “The people of New Tarajan are patient souls,” the bishop said to his congregation today. “They suffer all that their government lays on their shoulders, accept the lashes of the Landsraat and the courts, and bow their mortal heads before tyrants enthroned in pagan halls. But their souls are glorified by their meekness, and their divine inheritance shall overflow every imagining when their days in this world are done. For they have accepted the trials of God without question, and have remained in spirit and faith unbowed.”

    Bishop Akakios’s sermon was prompted by the trial of Catholic Piet Gilsheim of Witteberg in the Tarajani Heerlijkheid Tribunaal, which resulted in Mr. Gilsheim’s conviction for the murder of 16-year-old Margarethe De Leville on the basis of evidence provided by Mr. Gilsheim’s parish priest. The defendant had submitted a request for the court to disallow the evidence, which took the form of Mr. Gilsheim’s confession of the crime to his priest in the knowledge that the latter would hold his secrets in silence, while the Truth was spoken only to God. Judge Hilga Van Bouren not only ignored Mr. Gilsheim’s religious rights and allowed this confession to be publicly aired, but furthermore actively ruled to limit religious involvement in social and political life in New Tarajan, declaring in favor of “the fundamental rule of the separation of State and Church.” Christianity, by its very nature a religion of vast societal and political importance to its adherents, has been struck a further blow in a land whose politicians look at religious activity halfway around the world in Morea and Norda with formerly-unnecessary concern.

    According to Bishop Akakios, they will soon have to look much closer to home. “We call on sinners to confess their sins so that they are reminded of their failings and encouraged to correct them,” he preached. “We priests accept their confessions so that none but the Lord may bear witness to this baring of the soul—so that none but God may judge! Confession is the glory of a repentant man! The very nature of this evidence is a mark of Piet Gilsheim’s repentance for his actions, and his surrender to the judgment of God. Let no mere man claim the right to punish him now!

    “Should Piet Gilsheim perish at the hands of a Tarajani executioner for words spoken in love for Christ, he will surely gain a martyr’s crown!” the bishop concluded.

    This is a sensitive issue for the Sultanate, whose friends and allies, in particular the Empire of Duresia, have fully involved themselves in the coalition to invade the Social Democracy of New-Zealand alongside New-Zealand’s traditional ally, and Morea’s greatest historical threat, the Empire of Eurasia. Sultan Ioannis IX Kallergis has sent a Blue Palace emissary to represent Achaian Morea at the long-awaited peace conference in Antanares, both to observe the negotiations and to make contact with relatively-neutral and trustworthy parties in the hopes of finding new support abroad. New Tarajan, although formerly a partner in the New-Zealand invasion, quickly became one of its staunchest critics, and has spearheaded a push to bring peace to the region through international arbitration. Its government enlisted the help of Achaian representatives in the United Nations in an unsuccessful attempt to discover the truth of the matter before the Federation of Antanares took on the project and prepared the still-ongoing peace conference. The Sultan of Morea has since agreed to send his sons, Princes Chrysanthos and Dimosthenis Kallergis, to attend an annual Tarajani ball, which has been tentatively planned for whatever date concludes the peace talks in Antanares, which representatives from multiple monarchies and aristocracies from around the world are expected to attend.

    In the aftermath of Bishop Akakios’s sermon, the Blue Palace released a statement to the press to address the new wrinkle in its foreign policy. “The Sultanate and all Christians must grieve to hear of the judgment given by a Tarajani court today,” the statement said in part. “We must grieve too with the family of Margarethe De Leville, and with all those who have been affected by violence. Our grief does not dim our awareness that God judges all with equal justice, however. These are the trials we all must bear, no matter our sins or our faith. The Lord has sent trials above all others to the people of New Tarajan, and it is up to the Christian brethren among them to bear the load that He has seen fit to lay on their shoulders. Meanwhile, the Achaian people must bear our own burdens well outside of these concerns, and we believe that the government of New Tarajan will be intimately involved in easing our pains in future days. If the Lord is merciful, He may view this as part of the penance of a sinful nation; but that is not for His Anointed Majesty, or for anyone but God, to judge.”

    The statement concluded, “We pray for the soul of Piet Gilsheim, so that in death he may know peace. Heaven may welcome a new martyr for the faith, but among Christians and pagans alike, life must forever continue on.”

    NEWS FROM THE FEDERATION


    Sarif rising


    With an unexpected move the Sarif Industries, one of the colossus of high technology development and production, acquired the MHTW (McBan High-Tech and Weapon), one of the top weapon producer of the Federation. The acquisition arrives after another purchase from the Industries, that bought the VSC (Veliko-Sun Co.) and the MFB (Matassis Financial Bank), creating a third consortium in the country, in opposition to the JMC (Javoral Manufacturing Corporations) and the PSC (Primas Savarola Consortium). It's, for the internal and external market of the country, an important news. The Sarif Industies rose to the chronicle thanks to their studies on the implementation of nano-technologies in the human body. The progresses produced by the SI have created a new market of implants and body modifications around the nation and the globe. For Henry Van James, professor of philosophy and ethic at the Velikogovolka State University, SI granted the entrance of humanity in the "post-humanity era".
    In pure economical terms, the move has granted to the Sarif Industries important contracts with the government, previously in the hand of the MHTW and to the energetic sector, the only one that was outside the influence of the company, for now. According to a statement released from the press office of the company, the Sarif Industries has the intention to bring their efficiency and expertise in the energetic sector, to study the possibility to implement the nano-technologies into the field of energetic development and, in future, for the space research. The PSC and the JMC, partner with the government in the most recent space projects, received a hard punch during the morning aperture of the stock market, despite the guarantee of the government about their contracts.

    The conference is our only hope


    During one of the break of the conference, Ministry Gloria De La Crux released a small statement about the actual works of the conference, necessary after the strong words from Eurasia "The conference is our only hope to create peace and stability in the region" said the Ministry during the break, smiling to the cameras and to the journalists, despite a tired look "We need the conference to grant that the national interest of New Zealand, the nation offended in all this story, will be defended against the aggression".
    For most of the analysts, the position of Antanares is, actually, the most neutral around the different nations implicated in the conflict. Differently from most of the other participants of the conference, Antanares was one of the few countries that haven't sent any invasion troops in New Zealand. A peacekeeper forces is actually in the Social Democracy, trying to maintain stable the situation and help the local population that is currently suffering from the continuation of the fights between the irregular militia and the foreign occupation forces.

    DE WITTE-BEULEN SPEAKS ON WITTEBERG CASE
    Words used by Bishop Akakios cause "serious concern"

    Astana.
    Prime Minister Margrave Ulrich De Witte-Beulen has released his first speech regarding the difficult situation arisen from the ruling of the Witteberg Heerlijkheid Tribunaal judge Hilga Van Bouren, who ruled against the privacy of religious confession in a trial for murder. What appeared to be an historical ruling immediately created attriction with many religious (mainly christian) communities inside the Kingdom (the defendant, Piet Gilsheim, appealred to the Witteberg dioceses for protection of his confession), but now it risks to become reasons for concerns at international level.
    After the words of Bishop Akakios, indeed, the storm has intensified: while Christians have mustered in front of the Witteberg court to ask for the resignation of judge Van Bouren and the release of Gilsheim (allegedly "forgiven by the Lord") and similar protest have been organized in the southern States (where Christian communities are historically stronger), a different, peaceful, manifestation was made in front of the Achaian embassy in Astana, protesting what has been perceived as "disrespectful interference in Tarajani domestic affairs" (as a Diet representative defined it).
    The Prime Minister, who was caught in the middle of a Council meeting to discuss a new national economic program for the support of renewable energy sources, didn't delay his intervention, and decided to handle with the situation immediately.

    Thus, after further talks with Secretary Chief of the Diplomatic Relations Department (Ministry of Foreign Affairs), Countess Elizabeth Wilhelmine Van DerGrudeln (it is to be reminded that the Prime Minister personally detains the chair of Minister for Foreign Affairs), and Lord Advocate and Prosecutor, Countess Darya Khusrow (in representation of the Witteberg Office of the Prosecutor and the Ministry of Homeland Security And Justice), De Witte-Beulen (who incidentally belong to a branch of the Witteberg ruling House) has organized a press conference at the Palace of Government to discuss the issue and state the official stance of the Tarajani government on the matter.
    "First of all, I wish to thanks, on behalf of His Majesty the King and the Tarajani citizens, the police and Witteberg prosecutors and judicial authorities for their excellent job." he began "I admit I was at first reluctant to speak on this issue. However, after considering all its implications, and having heard the advises of my esteemed collaborators, I thought this to be the wisest course of action."
    He understood how "many Tarajani citizens felt insulted by the words used by Achaian Bishop Akakios" and particularly "the family of the victim, Margarethe De Leville, to whom my thoughts go first and foremost."
    "As Prime Minister of the Kingdom I have no intention to interfere nor to express judgement over an issue pertaining exclusively to the judiciary branch." De Witte-Beulen said "The independence of the judiciary is one of the fundamental pillars of our country, and possibly of every civilized nation in the world. Consequently, while I express my sincerest respect for our judges and prosecutors, I expect no less from foreign authorities of any kind."
    He continued by stating that "the words used by the Bishop are cause for serious concern for the Council, myself, and His Majesty: for they constitute an unjustifiable interference in Tarajani domestic affairs, and openly invite for the violation of existing Tarajani laws, although I am sure, as the other ministers and the King are, that those were the fruit of a personal decision of the Bishop, and did not reflect at all the thoughts of the Achaian people. However, I exepect no less that an apology by Bishop Akakios."
    "Here in New Tarajan, law is above all of us, including our personal religious belief. And our primary concern is not for the protection of God, who I'm sure doesn't need our protection, but for the victims and their families, who deserve justice. Justice for a young girl unjustly murdered has been made, and for that I'm grateful, as the rest of the Tarajani citizens."
    These strong words were further strengthened by the final remarks of the Prime Minister: "The decision to give to a convicted murdered the crown of martyr is dishuman. Although I believe that the people of Achaia will not allow such a thing to happen, I must warn that the implementation of such a decision will be considered an insult to Margarethe De Leville, and to the Kingdom as a whole, and it will not remain without due consequences."
    "I am sure that the Achaian government will not let this unfortunate mistake to ruin the prospects of good relations between New Tarajan and Morea." he concluded.


    New Tarajan reaffirms commitment to peace in New-Zealand

    The press conference has also been an occasion for the Prime Minister to rectify the stance of his government on other pressing international issues, particularly the war in New-Zealand and on-going peace conference in Velikogovolka.
    "New Tarajan stands firm on its commitment to peace in New-Zealand" he said "And we believe this goal can only be achieved though the success of the peace conference and the everlasting efforts of the Antanaresian government to help ease tensions in New-Zealand territory."
    The Prime Minister stated also that "We aks to all sides to keep respecting the ceasefire, as established at the beginning of the conference, and to keep pushing forward with the conference. Meanwhile, we will continue our humanitarian efforts through our military forces on the ground. I also take this opportunity to announce that the Council is working, in close cooperation with the Tarajani financial world, to a reconstruction program of all NZ areas affected by the war. Details of the plan will be released after the conclusion of our works and some talks with the New-Zealand government."

    Reports Suggest Militia Planning Something Big


    Radio chatter and reports suggest the Patriot Militia group are on the verge of launching something the militia has code named "Viper". Furthermore intercepted Eurasian short range radio transmissions suggest that the streets in Detroit district, which holds the key to the successful retaking of New-Zealand, are eerily quiet suggesting that something is afoot. It seems that unless the peace conference is to move on rapidly, the war is on the brink of re ignition, with the Militia holding some kind of ace up their sleeves that will hopefully drive the remaining Eurasian and Marquettien forces out of mainland New-Zealand. There are also reports coming out from the Federal Defence Forces that suggest the NZDF is preparing and mobilising to a high level, prepared to resume fighting should the Coalition forces make an attempt to go back on the offensive. For now it looks like the future is bright for the Social Democracy with recent decisive victories and strong international support guaranteeing that one way or another, the Kiwi Empire will bounce back from this conflict, regain it's territories and stand taller than ever before, unified unilaterally under one flag as one people. 

    In related news, High Commander Coral Shepard was recently berated directly by occupation delegations who suggested her actions to be irresponsible and unbecoming of someone of her stature. Regardless, Commander Shepard has gone forth with plans to supply and aid the districts which recently overthrew occupation forces independently in a surprise Militia attack against occupation forces and even went as far as to openly state that she looks forward to honouring the brave militia actions formally once the Social Democracy is restored. When questioned by reporters as to whether she had been berated by Garagen for her actions that could have potentially shattered the fragile cease fire, she replied "He was quite unhappy. We'd completely forgotten to walk his dog!", a tongue in cheek way of indicating Garagen supported her decision to support and aid the Militia movements.

    PEACE CONFERENCE A SHAM

    After a long period of silence on the invasion of New Zealand, the Ministry of Foreign affairs largely under opposition pressure has come up with an official stance on the issue.


    "The UKZ condemns the ongoing bloodshed in New Zealand in the strongest terms. We stand astonished at the complacency and lack of international outcry against the invading forces which violated the sovreignity of New Zealand without any prior UNE approval. The UKZ can no longer be a netral party as we see our allies as well being hand in glove with this diabolical scheme of invasion.

    We do not see the ongoing peace conference as legitamate, as it is only means to let the invading powers off the proverbial hook. The UKZ wants to see affirmative action taken against all members of the invading coalition by the Security Council.

    We in the UKZ will not bear to see international law and order flouted for personal gain.

    Certain nations have reaffirmed their commitment to peace in New Zealand while slyly fanning the fires of war by encouraging the peace talks in Antanres. Peace can only be achieved by affirmitive action of the Security Council calling for immediate cease fire and withdrwal of foreign troops from Kiwi soil.

    Some nations claim that the conference is our only hope for a peaceful New Zealand, while on the contrary it paves the way for future such conflicts and international law violations.

    Some nations have also threatned to leave the peace conference. I encourage them to do so. I see nothing wrong in a war mongeror leaving a peace conference.

    We stand in complete support and solidarity with the Kiwi people as they face a threat to their way of life and freedom. However our supprt can oly be of the moral and diplomatic kind. The UKZ doesn't see itself in a position to extend military or monetary aid to the Kiwi fighters.

    NEWS FROM THE FEDERATION


    4th Fleet in Morea


    Without too much noise, the 4th is departed two days ago from Cape Wolf, where is usually stationed, to move in the national water of Morea. It's one of the biggest surprise of the week, probably. Until now, no official relationships or diplomatic channels were open between the two nations, expect for the presence of morean delegates at the conference hosted by the Federation, in Velikogovolka and for a consulate in the city for the citizens of Morea visiting Antanares. According to a statement released from the Ministry of Defense "The 4th fleet will be engaged in some military exercises with the morean forces in their home waters. We are happy to start these war-games with our friends of Morea. It's an occasion, for us and them, to learn something more and, we hope, create new occasion of meeting between us".

    According to the info released from the Ministry, the 4h Fleet will be followed by the 17th and the 18th Air Group, wings composed by advanced stealth fighters for air-air operation and support mission for their fleet. The news, in any case, arrives after the alarming intrusion of Eurasian's jets in the air space of Morea, seen from most of the analysts as a pressure way against the government of the country from the Empire. It's unknown if the exercises were prepared from a long time or they're a last hour idea. For someone, voices of corridors mostly, it's a counter-move against the intrusion of Eurasia in Morea. Not less important, whispers suggested that the government of Antanares has the intention to propose to Morea the construction of a military base of the territory of the Kingdom. It's not the first time that is put forth this idea. Two months ago insiders in the Ministry of Defense suggested that the country was ready to propose to Aloia the construction of a naval port of Antanares, but nothing was confirmed or done.

    NEW TARAJAN WELCOMES MOREAN PRINCES IN ASTANA
    It is the first State visit of Achaian royals in the Kingdom


    Prince Chrysanthos of Morea soon after the landing.

    Astana.
    Unexpected by many, who pointed at the actual difficult situation caused by the Wittenberg case, today came the official announcement: two Morean Princes have reached Astana for a long State visit in New Tarajan.
    Princes Chrysanthos and Dimosthenis Kallergis have been welcomed at the Conrad III International Airport by both King Friederick Wilhelm and Queen Beatrice, Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen, and the Lord President of the Landsraad Prince Maximilian Van Sondenburg. The landing was also the occasion for a brief joint press conference, where King Friederick Wilhelm reiterated "the importance of peaceful and constructive relationship with every country for Tarajani diplomacy."
    Escorted by a ceremonial parade of the Duresian Royal Guards, they then moved to the Royal Palace, where the two princes will be guests of the Royal House for the whole duration of their stay in the Kingdom (except for the Great Ball, when they will reside, together with the Royal House, in Vieneskel).
    A banquet was held at the Palace, with the participation of the Tarajani aristocracy, before the beginning of diplomati talks. The issue to be addressed are many.
    "New Tarajan and Morea wish to strengthen their relationship in the face of the hard challenges laying ahead in the international field" Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen said "We need to address all those issues of common interest."
    Priority has been given, unsurprisingly, to the war in New-Zealand (and the peace conference in Velikogovolka), and the King personally praised "the commitment of the Morean government and people in the refugee crisis caused by the war". It is possible that Tarajani volunteers will soon reach Morea to help handling the crisis as well.
    Another major concern was the recent Eurasian military mobilization near Morea. De Witte-Beulen spoke clearly about that: "We cannot accept any infringement of national sovereignty, nor any kind of pressure exercised upon peace-loving countries.", condemning the violations of Morean air space by Eurasian aircrafts, violations which "greatly undermine the possibilities for peace, while causing concern among the whole international community. We are sure that the Eurasian government will take all the necessary measures to prevent such events from happening again."
    The two princes will also discuss the situation of Christian communities in the Kingdom after the most recent events, although it is still unclear what position they and the Tarajani government will take.
    Tomorrow, the two princes will be guests of the Landsraad at Palace Van Geldern, where they'll have the opportunity to address both the Landsraad and the Royal Diet, before a second banquet.


    THE KINGDOM PARTICIPATES TO MOREAN EXERCISES

    Meanwhile, the Ministry of the Military confirmed that Tarajani units will participate to the joint Morean-Antanaresian military drills in the Sultanate.
    A Carrier Strike Group belonging to the Fourth Fleet and led by the HTMNS Heinrich I is en route from the Golden Coast. The Tarajani participation will be full-fledged: together with the naval units of the CSG, a whole aircraft complement will participate; land operations will see the contribution of the 117th Mechanized Brigade of the Royal Army and a battaillon of the Royal Marines for amphibious operations.
    "These exercises will increase the interoperability between our countries militaries" Duke Conrad Amasya, Commander-in-chief of the Navy, said "We will demonstrate how cooperation between different militaries could greatly increase the overall performance. But, also, we wish to demonstrate that there is a firm commitment of our countries to protect the Sultanate against a foreign invasion, no matter its origin."


    Both the State visit and the participation to the Morean exercises has raised worries inside some circles of Tarajani politics and society, particularly inside the opposition parties inside the Diet, and in Wittenberg, where there's still rage for the words used by Morean bishop Akakios.
    However, as the Prime Minister underlined "We cannot let the mistakes and words of one man to cast a shadow and hide the common interests which unite our two countries."

    SULTANATE MILITARY WELCOMES ANTANARESIAN, TARAJANI MILITARY FORCES
    Achaians and Montferrati Forces Participate in Military Exercises


    Mystras, Morea: Sultan Ioannis IX Kallergis came before the world’s media today to thank the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and government officials of the Federation of Antanares and the Federal Aristocratic Kingdom of New Tarajan as ground, naval, and air forces of the two Altigantan nations have made their way to Morea over the past two days. The Sultanate of Morea has been recently troubled by Eurasian actions on its southern borders, and the Blue Palace eagerly accepted offers from the Antanaresian and Tarajani governments to host military exercises in Morean territory to demonstrate that the Sultanate’s strength and friendship was not yet exhausted.

    “We have been in communication with our partners and counterparts in Antanares and New Tarajan for the past several days,” confirmed the Sultan in his statement to the press, “and in that time I have heard nothing from either government that makes me hesitate in accepting their friendship, their aid, and the strength of their arms. We live in a time of uncertainty—which has been amply demonstrated for all of us—and we must not be found wanting when the time to test us arrives.”

    These military exercises represent both a relief to the Achaian people, whose fear of the Eurasian menace is long-standing and clearly justified, and a particular success for Sultan Ioannis’s foreign policy. Recent news from New Tarajan has largely focused on its increasingly-secular domestic policies, such as in the recent murder trial of Catholic Piet Gilsheim, in which Mr. Gilsheim’s confession to his parish priest was entered into evidence. This prompted a furious reaction from Bishop Akakios IV Doukas of the Diocese of Mystras, who went so far as to suggest that Mr. Gilsheim might be declared a martyr for the faith in the near future. Sultan Ioannis, on the other hand, has attempted to either ignore or minimize the religious differences between the Sultanate and the Federal Aristocratic Kingdom, and has long intended to send his sons, Princes Chrysanthos and Dimosthenis, to New Tarajan to take part in that country’s Grand Ball at the conclusion of the peace conference in Antanares. Eurasian aggression has preempted these long-term plans, but the response from the Sultan’s hoped-for allies has clearly encouraged the Morean government and the Sultan in particular.

    “This exercise is a representation of our future goals,” Sultan Ioannis continued in his statement. “Morea stands with Antanares and New Tarajan in our desire for international justice and peace. We are aware that there are many people and many nations today that do not share that desire, and we are furthermore aware that there is at least one nation that would like to punish us for our views. We will not bend, and with the help of God and Altiganta, we will not break.”

    Sultan Ioannis further confirmed that he had included Duke Nico II Baumbach of Montferrat, his son-in-law, when discussing the upcoming military exercises. “The Morean and Montferrati forces will work as one,” he said. “It is for that reason that Montferrati soldiers have come to Morea to aid in our defense. It is necessary that we learn to work together with our long-term guests as well as our distant allies.”

    The Sultan also confirmed Antanaresian reports that the Federation’s government had inquired into the possibility of constructing a military base on Morean soil. While conservative elements within Achaian society are leery of the possibility, Sultan Ioannis appeared entirely unconcerned when he answered reporters’ questions on the subject. “I have personally decided to provide the Federation of Antanares the room to build their base,” he said. “As the new arrivals from Montferrat have shown us, it is no hardship to host Morea’s friends from abroad when they come to aid in our defense. Our governments are currently discussing a short-term treaty that will allow Antanaresian soldiers to remain on Morean soil for a set term of years. It is our hope that such a foreign base will no longer be necessary at the conclusion of that time, but as there is no guarantee that that will be the case, we must be open to negotiating extensions when and if the need arises.”

    The military exercises are set to begin in the coming days. Morean military sources would not comment on the specifications of the Achaian and Montferrati forces being committed to the exercise.

    NEW TARAJAN-MOREA SIGNS MILESTONE AGREEMENT
    ABMDS, military reformation, air policy mission involved


    Two Tarajani Gripens landing at a Morean airbase.

    Astana.
    If there was the need of a sign that New Tarajan and Morea were really going to leave behind them the issues dividing them, then that sign has come.
    After weeks of negotiations, the Kingdom and the Sultanate have signed what has been definied by many as "an historic deal" increasing cooperation between the two countries, particularly in the field of security.
    The end of the joint Morean-Antanaresian-Tarajani military exercises and the decision of Velikogovolka to expand its presence abroad with the lease of a full-fledged base in Morea, has now been followed by the decision of the Tarajani government to make a step forward in cooperating with Morea.
    The deal has been described in detail by Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen and Prince Dimosthenis Kallergis during a press conference held at the Royal Palace (where the Morean prince is a guest of Their Majesties together with Prince Chrysanthos):
    "The agreement between New Tarajan and Morea encompasses the whole spectrum of security and defense" De Witte-Beulen said "First of all, we decided to commit our resources to the protection of the Sultanate's own national sovereignty and territorial integrity, through the establishment of a Joint Air Policy Mission (JAPM) involving both Morean and Tarajani air forces: the main goal of the JAPM will be to patrol the skies of the Sultanate, ensuring that no violations of its air space occur and, in case it happens, to identify and escort the traspassers. To achieve this, we will deploy at least two air squadrons, on a rotational basis."
    He continued by stating the other points of the agreement: "Of course, protection of Morean skies cannot be achieved without a strong, self-sufficient, and effective, Morean air force. In order to reach this goal, New Tarajan will commit its considerable know-how and experience in the aerospace sector: with our government has intermediary, the Morean government is already signing agreements with many Tarajani private companies for the acquisition of the most needed assets of a new, reformed, Morean air force, including next-generation fighters like Gripen, fighter-bombers, and trainers. Also, CAEW aircrafts will be donated by the Royal House to the Sultanate, in the occasion of the Great Ball of Vieneskel."
    "Through these acquisitions" PM said "Morea will not only have at its disposal some of the best and most modern aircrafts of the world, but it will also acquire the know-how to maintain them, and even to produce them."
    But what has been perceived as the most important point of all is that "In order to ensure the protection of the Morean people against the threat of missile attacks, New Tarajan will deploy the Kalihaan Anti Ballistic Missile Defense System, which is often called the Space Shield, upon the Sultanate, ensuring its full protection."


    Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen during the conference.

    The agreement will also provide for the sending of Tarajani military advisors and trainers to Morea, to help reforming the whole military of the Sultanate to better handle with contemporary challenges. Also, rumors are spreading from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs about talks between Morea and Antanares for massive acquisitions in terms of infantry and other land equipments and vehicles, a field in which the Federation is the recognized global leader. However, no confirmation has yet been received from either the Antanaresian and the Morean governments.
    One thing is certain, however: although at the beginning of its government the Prime Minister proclaimed that New Tarajan was to take a more neutral stance on many international issues, it is clear that that statement didn't mean the abandonment of a policy of protection of international right. The agreement is mainly the response to what has been perceived by the Tarajani government (and public opinion) as unnecessary "bullying" of Morea by Eurasia, due to the Sultanate's position at the Velikogovolka Peace Conference on New-Zealand; however, this initial stance is evolving in something more, opening unexpected opportunities for increased cooperation between both countries in almost every field. A cooperation that, due to Morean neutral and pacifist stance, would be perfectly in line with De Witte-Beulen's address, and which could greatly benefit Tarajani economy: the signed agreement already provides for much needed sap to Tarajani aerospace industry, a pillar of national economy, which now sees in front of itself the perspective of massive acquisitions from Morea and, possibly, other foreign customers.

    DPM DESSALINES OPENLY CRITICIZES EURASIAN ACTIONS IN THE SEA OF LATIA
    VOICES SUPPORT FOR THE PEOPLE OF MOREA




    Deputy Prime Minister and Former Prime Minister Lucille Dessalines shown above.

    CALABASAS, ARVEYRES == Following recent international tensions, including the ongoing crisis in the Social Democracy, the Deputy Prime Minister Lucille Dessalines (who also served as the Prime Minister of Arveyres) who is serving for Victoria Choi during her leave to Naju, has issued the Arveyran stance on the war-game operations of the Empire of Eurasia in the Sea of Latia. "We are completely shocked, well, I'm not exactly shocked, I'm more upset that a nation that has been bound by treaty to protect the people of Arveyres, would go as far as to taunt our brothers and sisters across the Sea of Latia. As a Christian, I refuse to sit idly and allow such actions to culminate near Morea". The Deputy Prime Minister continued with her speech, noting that her status as neither a native Arveyran nor a Maiorist puts her in the negative eye of the Empire.

    The current 394th Senate of Arveyres, overlooking the atrocities committed over the last few months, is becoming more internally conflicted, with the far left and far right calling for a potential independence referendum to annul the Granada Compromise, and grant Arveyres full independence from the Empire of Eurasia. It is unknown how this will play out in the future.

    Liberty, Prosperity, Strength

    The invasion of New-Zealand has officially ended as remaining coalition forces make their sheepish withdrawal from their limited strongholds as triumphant Federal forces march the streets and loyal militia forces parade their victory throughout the Social Democracy. President Garagen arrived back in Grand Haven late this afternoon aboard the recently retrofitted NZ01 presidential jet, after a short flyover of the major district capitols flanked by a squadron of the latest NZAF Fighter Jets in standard military parade fashion. The Federal Government has already announced that today will officially become a public holiday, named Liberation Day. Following his arrival at Grand Haven Central Airbase, President Garagen was promptly taken by Presidential motorcade to the steps of Capitol Hill where the rest of the rest of the parliament, key military officials, and certain dignitaries were gathered on the steps behind the presidential podium facing an overwhelming crowd who had gathered on the lawns of Capitol Hill to witness the national address that was to be broadcast live throughout the Social Democracy and undoubtedly throughout the world. President Garagen took to the podium at 6pm sharp, flanked by High Commander Coral Shepard (who was met with thunderous applause from the gathered public), first lady Elaena and the Tarajani Ambassador to New-Zealand. 

    "My fellow kiwis, the night is always darkest before dawn. Today we are gathered on the brink of dawn, the dawn of a grand new era for the Social Democracy, a grand new era for the Kiwi Empire! Today we have triumphed against the overwhelming might of the enemy and we have persevered through the hardest of struggles to prove to the world and to the forces that yearn to undermine us that we are strong! We are one people and this is our land! Never shall we bow, never shall we hide, we shall thrive and we shall win! Liberty, Prosperity, Strength. These are the 3 pillars of our grand Empire and we will fight till our last breath leaves to uphold the values of the Social Democracy and all that that grand flag we fly stands for. For now we celebrate our victory, but tomorrow we show the world what we are truly made of. We are about to undertake the largest reconstruction effort ever seen, the largest single rebuild to ever take place. But I assure you, we will build back stronger than ever before, we will build back an Empire that will have our enemies cowering in their corners, an economic superpower with a military might to be reckoned with! Look to the future. It is bright, and it is ours for the taking. Long live the Empire!"

    MAKE THE INVADERS PAY

    Following the news of the liberation of New Zeland. The Prime Minister's office released a statement calling for the 'sensible few' of the international community to make the invading forces pay for their crimes against the sovreignity of New Zeland and humanity.

    The PMO has also hinted at the stalling of the peace process between Eurasia and UKZ. The ZNC government was looking forward to continue on the path of friendship that the previous Liberal government had established with Eurasia.

    The PMO in the statement said that the UKZ refuses to be affiliated to 'the bullies' of the international community and with those nations that do not respect the international law and the sovreignity of other nations.

    The PMO also said that it would move the UN to make sure that "Heavy sanctions and fines are leavied upon the invading parties and that they should pay for the repairs of the damages they have caused in New Zeland."

    This was also accompanied a group of protestors outside the Eurasian and Duresian embassies. The Government tried to provide protection but it has been reported that a few protestors flung bricks into the the embassy shattering windows and breaking a few computers.
    A Euraisan Temple was also burnt in East Plains.

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has assured hightened security for Eurasian diplomats and employees of the Eurasian mission in UKZ and the Ministry of Home Affairs has increased security around the Eurasian Temple in Cair Paravel

    CALABASAS, SEVILLA == In the midst of a rising international conflict in the Sea of Latia between the nations of Morea and Eurasia, Arveyres has opened her doors to formalizing and strengthening relations with Morea. As a constituent province of the Empire of Eurasia, although having a large degree of autonomy, the Government in Calabasas has been reluctant to open the door to its Morean neighbors. Following the Deputy Prime Minister Lucille Dessalines' motive to push for international peace, especially in the waters and lands that are close to the heartland of Arveyres, the government has shifted to opening its doors to Morea. With no news or known location of the Prime Minister Victoria Choi, the Deputy Prime Minister will continue to serve in place of the Prime Minister. Ambassador Karamanlis of Morea is expected to travel to Arveyres to discuss creating diplomatic ties between the two nations.

    MALACANAN, VALENCIA == The First Republican Conference of Arveyres was held in the secluded northern city of Malacañan, in the Malacañang Palace, a former trust of the Kingdom that was sold to the city. The RCA (Republican Conference of Arveyres) has been pushing the 394th Senate and the National Court of Arveyres to review the Granadan Compromise, which elevated Arveyres' autonomy, effectively creating an independent nation within an independent nation. However, it comes with great precautions to be taken, because if the Granadan Compromise were to be revoked, the Empire of Eurasia, specifically the Emperor, would be given full direct control of the Province as a personal property of the Emperor.

    ALMERIA, GRANADA == The Government of Arveyres, in response to the recent attacks on the Eurasian and Duresian embassies in the UKZ, has ordered heightened security on the UKZ Embassy in Almeria, to prevent a potential attack on the Embassy by outraged ethnic Eurasians and ethnic Duresians living in Arveyres. The Government in Calabasas has also urged the Government in Cair Paravel to recall the UKZ Ambassador in Arveyres as soon as possible, for security reasons.

    AMBASSADOR TO THE UKZ RECALLED
    Ministry of Diplomacy cites lack of security as main factor in decision.


    The Zack Embassy in Eurasia.

    After the attack on the Imperial Embassy in the UKZ, the Ministry of Diplomacy has recalled the Eurasian Diplomatic Legate to Zackalantis. In a statement released to the media, the Ministry stated that "We no longer feel confident that the UKZ can guarantee the security of our Embassy or of our Legate." The Ministry also officially requested that the UKZ recall their own ambassador to Eurasia, stating that the current situation regarding popular opinion towards the UKZ is not conducive to the security of the ambassador.

    The Ministry of Culture was also quick to decry the UKZ, stating that the Zack Government passively allowed the destruction of a Maiorist Temple in the East Plains, going as far as to say "Quite simply, the UKZ would be pleased if all Maiorists in Zackalantis vanished tomorrow." The Ministry announced that the Penitus Oculatus, the shadowy division tasked with, among other things, enforcing the religious tenets of Mos Maiorum throughout the Empire, would be increasing its observation of Zack Christian temples, with the rationale that "It is well known that these saboteurs plot nefarious deeds inside their temples under the guise of religion, and we will be keeping an eye on their activities."

    EURASIAN FORCES WITHDRAW FROM NEW ZEALAND
    Imperial forces enact withdrawal from occupied territories; citizens of New Zealand distraught

    New Zealand
    Following the desperate bargaining that took place at the Antanaresian Peace Conference between the nearly-defeated President Gurgle and his lackeys and the Coalition forces, Eurasian Legions have begun their promised withdrawal from the occupied lands. The citizens of these areas, many of whom are ethnically Eurasian or Duresian but many of whom were merely welcoming of the overthrow of President Gargoons dictatorial overreach, were reportedly inconsolable and distraught as the Legionaries left and the NZDF could be seen coming back to enforce tyranny. Many Eurasian Legionaries were reported to have been unhappy with the withdrawal as well, saying that the tactical situation was very favorable. "We had the Hibernians on the retreat," said one Centurion, "And both we and they knew that their end was very near."

    The withdrawal marks the end to the Invasion of New Zealand, which began with the Coalition forces attempting to remove the tyrant and dictator President Gargen from power, who is rumored to beat his wife, and who is renowned for his unbelievable cruelty and maleficence. In a show of good faith towards the Blukonian and Texanian people, who have been hurt the most by President Gumdrop's racist and oppressive policies, Eurasia and Duresia announced they will finance a make-work program to allow the aforementioned some degree of independence from Gegarn's reprehensible repression.

    The invasion has finally come to an end, and despite the best efforts of the coalition, President Gargen used his people as human shields for his own ambition, and now the Kiwi people will be subjugated under his cruel and maniacal grip for the foreseeable future. When asked as to why Eurasia did not commit more men to the fight, in reference to the well known fact that Eurasian martial prowess could easily overwhelm the pitiful defenses strung together by NZDF High Commander Corral SheepHard, who is rumored to in fact be a man in clever disguise, a spokesman only said "President Gag wanted only that we use overwhelming force against him, for then he could use his own people as cannon fodder to stop our advance and cement his grip on power. Eurasia is not in the business of providing dictators with casi belli, and thus we did not wish to play into his hand."

    REFUGEE CRISIS TAKES NEW TURN
    Settled Refugees Now Asking to Return to New-Zealand, Blukon, Texania

    Mystras, Morea: Morea’s refugee influx has begun to reverse, as hundreds of unfortunates brought to Morea either under their own power or through the aid of Morean, Zack, or other military escorts have begun to make their way back to war-torn New-Zealand. According to military and civil sources, migrant movements have begun to tax border checkpoints as well as Morea’s port facilities both coming and going, as still-unsure refugees continue to enter Morea while those already settled here have decided that the time has come to return. Recent news of the invading coalition’s withdrawal from Kiwi territory proved enticing enough to draw at least one thousand, and possibly as many as two thousand, migrants already inside Morea back to their homelands. But charitable organizations and members of the military who worked closely with the refugees suggest that the end of outright hostilities in New-Zealand was only the most recent cause for the refugees’ desire to leave.

    “Many of these people are pagans, of course,” Church organizer Efthymia Votsi said to the Monitor. “They are uncomfortable here in a Christian land. We can see a great difference in the attitudes of Christian and pagan migrants who have come to Morea, and—while the Church is not responsible for collecting migration figures, so I can only speculate—I believe that will correlate with the number of migrants who have chosen to leave Morea as opposed to those who have chosen to stay.”

    Colonel Pavlos Pagas, however, says there is more to the issue. “Religion plays its part,” he said, “but Morea has proven a lot more welcoming to newcomer pagans than we had initially believed it would. Nowadays there are as many pagans manning the checkpoints and bringing refugees into the country as there are Christians, after all. I think that has done a lot to put the newcomers at ease when they arrive.” When asked why the migrants would want to leave if that were the case, Colonel Pagas became very grim. “They came here to escape a warzone, not to find a new one,” he said. “They see Eurasia, the nation responsible for at least half of the refugees we have in Morea now, turning its attention toward us. They see that we are so incapable of defending ourselves that we’re inviting every willing international partner to send its military to guard Morea’s borders. They don’t want to settle here only to live through another war, and the way Eurasia’s going… we can only pray.”

    While some refugees flee to their old homelands now that the danger has presumably passed, others—both the recently-displaced of the coalition invasion and those who have come to Morea from New-Zealand’s own expansion into Blukon and Texania—have chosen to permanently settle in Morea. As Sultan Ioannis IX Kallergis had hoped, these settlers have found work in various fields to improve production and, increased unemployment notwithstanding, local and regional economies. Settlers who have been unable to find positions in industry have turned to Morea’s most dependable employer for work: the military. Achaians can certainly take heart that many of their new neighbors are serious about making Morea their permanent home, and are willing and able to defend it.

    TRIAL OVER ELENA RAISES TARAJANI CONCERNS

    Astana.
    The government of New Tarajan received the news about Princess Elena Garagen's conviction as "highly concerning", Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen said today during his speech to the Royal Diet.
    The conviction for high treason, which came from the Eurasian Supreme Tribunal, has been labelled by the Prime Minister as "unnecessary, and harmful for the peace process still on-going between Eurasia and New-Zealand."
    "We are concerned that behind this decision simply lays the intention to humiliate President Garagen. This is not only deeply unfair, but also deeply dangerous for Eurasia itself, since it raises worries about the independence of its judiciary system, and the uphold of the rule of law in the Empire, both things that, we are sure, are not in the interests of Eurasia." the Prime Minister said. De Witte-Beulen also read a personal note written by King Friederick Wilhelm on the issue, calling for "the respect of international law" since Princess Elena is no more an Arveyran (thus, an Eurasian) citizen, and of "royal blood and nobility, a quality with surely doesn't lack to Her Highness." The king (followed in this by the Prime Minister) expressed his wish that the issue "be resolved quickly, and without hidden interests of political action."
    The intervention of the king was deemed particularly necessary both in his role as Patrician of the Eurasian Empire and as head of an House enjoying strong links with the Arveyran Princely House. Meanwhile, with his speech the Prime Minister has countered the concerns raised by the opposition, which called for a "strongest response" against Eurasian attempts "to reverse, through manipulation of law, the withdraw of the Eurasian military from the field" as a member of the Diet said during her speech to the Prime Minister.
    Concerns came from the benches of both the Royal Diet and the Landsraad, with the latter expressing "the deepest dismay" of Tarajani aristocracy through an official note to the Eurasian ambassador. Apart from these declarations, however, no further action will be taken by New Tarajan for the moment: everyone is clearly hoping for a quick, peaceful, solution, without sparking a new international crisis. A failure in this sense, however, will undoubtedly force Astana to change its disposition.
    The New-Zealand ambassador has also been summoned to the Palace of Government, to discuss with the Council about the issue.


    The Palace of Government, seat of the Royal Council, Astana New District.

    ROYAL DIET APPROVES NEW TARAJAN-MOREA AGREEMENTS

    Two days ago, the Royal Diet officially approved the agreements signed between New Tarajan and the Sultanate of Morea by Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen and Prince Chrysanthos Kallergis, respectively. The Diet session saw the approval won by a large majority, including fringes of the opposition parties: a clear victory for the Prime Minister, which saw the first steps of his foreign policy legitimated, and thus his leadership strengthened. But it's also a victory for the Royal Diet: this is the first time the Council submitted an approval request to the legislative body about international issues. A further confirmation that the Prime Minister and the King wish to keep going on with the liberalization of the Kingdom, with more and more powers and responsibilities devolved to the most representative body of New Tarajan. The Landsraad (which briefly raised its concerns about the need for submitting the agreements also to the Diet's approval, before the King's direct intervention) had already given its approval last week. Both the Landsraad and the Diet meetings were personally overseen by King Friederick Wilhelm and both Morean Princes (Chrysanthos and Dimosthenis) from the Royal Tribune.

    SULTANATE AMBASSADOR TO VISIT NEW-ZEALAND
    Discussion Likely to Involve Recovery, Refugee, Military Matters


    Mystras, Morea: In the latest indication that Morea’s attempts at neutrality are a thing of the past, the Blue Palace today announced that it would soon conduct talks with the Social Democracy of New-Zealand, only recently evacuated by the last remaining forces of an invading coalition led by the Empire of Eurasia. According to the Blue Palace’s spokesman, the Sultanate has assigned Angelos Karamanlis, who recently visited with ministers of the Kingdom of Arveyres, to make the journey to New-Zealand to speak with civil and military officials regarding the aftermath of the recent war.

    “Morea has every reason to achieve clarification with the Social Democracy,” the spokesman said. “Our nation hosts hundreds of refugees from territories all across New-Zealand and its neighbors, many of whom are now looking to return home. Similarly, our nation’s minimal role in the aborted peace process in Antanares has nonetheless committed our government to seeing the project of peace through. As we have evidently assumed some risk in this endeavor already, we have no incentive to turn away from helping to achieve the hoped-for resolution in this matter—that is, peace and prosperity for the people of New-Zealand.”

    Without question, however, the ‘risk’ in question has encouraged the Sultanate in this desire to speak with New-Zealand, which is now clearly an enemy of the same Empire of Eurasia that has seen fit to threaten Morean peace and security, ostensibly in reaction to Morea’s presence at the peace conference in Antanares. The Empire has been relatively quiescent in the time since, but as its main forces withdraw from New-Zealand, there is no telling what task they might be given next. Sultan Ioannis IX Kallergis has been forging as many international partnerships as possible in the hopes of heading off another incursion into Morean airspace by Eurasian fighter planes, a practice criticized by many as turning Morea into the playground of foreign armies, but defended by the Sultan’s supporters as necessary to ensure the safety of the Achaian people. It came as no surprise when the Blue Palace’s statement included a reference to possible military cooperation with New-Zealand in the near future. “Kyrios Karamanlis looks forward to speaking with prominent officers of the New-Zealand military, including High Commander Coral Shepard, as well as several leaders of the militias lately active against coalition forces in Kiwi territory,” the Sultanate spokesman said. “His Anointed Majesty has every confidence that a strong new partnership between Morea and New-Zealand is soon to begin, encompassing the economic, political, and military goals that both of our nations share.”

    Ambassador Karamanlis is set to arrive in New-Zealand within the week.

    THE GRAND BALL READY TO BEGIN
    The Court has officially moved to Vieneskel, traditional prelude to the opening

    Vieneskel.
    After a delay caused by troubles in the international arena, the Grand Ball of Vieneskel is finally set to begin. Indeed, this morning the whole Court, headed by King Friederick Wilhelm II, Queen Beatrix, and Crown Prince Sigismund, has moved to the Royal Estate of Vieneskel, in the outskirts of Astana, as for the traditional prelude to the opening of the Ball. The procession left the Royal Palace early in the morning, escorted by a full battallion of the Royal Horse Guard through Conrad III Avenue, through a crowd of joyful citizens, for Palace Van Geldern, seat of the Landsraad: there, as for tradition, the King and the Queen symbolically gave the keys of Astana and the Royal Palace to the Lord Mayor of the capital, received the homage of the Landsraad, the Diet, and the government (represented by the members of the Royal Council, led by Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen), and then proceeded out of the capital, reaching Vieneskel after few hours.


    The Royal Estate of Vieneskel, viewed from the gardens.

    Many Houses of the Landsraad have followed the Court, moving to the respective residences in the area, ready to participate. Princes Chrysanthos and Dimosthenis Kallergis of the Sultanate of Morea are already with the Court, while the arrival of the first of many foreign guests is expected in the next days. Every foreign delegation will be personally welcomed by King Friederick Wilhelm and the Lord President of the Landsraad, Prince Maximilian Van Sondenburg, at their arrival, with military parades in Astana and fireworks, and will be guests of the Royal House and the other Landsraad Houses for the entire duration of the Ball.
    The Grand Ball traces its origins back to the XVII century, although it took its actual physiognomy only in the XVIII century: the ritual of the abandonment of the capital was indeed established in 1743 by King Heinrich IX (1741 - 1760), as a sybolic representation of the decision of the King and the aristocracy to leave behind the pressures of life in the capital and to find temporary refuge and solace outside of it for a period of "heavenly peace" (in the words of a poet of the period). In the XIX century the Grand Ball became more and more an occasion for aristocratic meetings, enlarging its scope far outside Tarajani borders, and including the aristocracies from all over the world. Nowadays, it is open not only to aristocrats, but also to heads of State from every country; but it is still the most glamourous event in Tarajani social life (and problably in the world), made up of a full week of ceremonies, balls, theatrical shows, and music. In 1976, the whole week has been declared National Holiday by King Conrad IV.


    QUEEN'S BATON VISITS SDUDETI-KARABAK, NORTH AJANIA

    While the Royal House is gathering in Vieneskel, other members of House Van Vinkel are still busy with another occasion to celebrate. Grand Duke Conrad of Sdudeti-Karabak and Princess Elise Angelique of North Ajania, indeed, have respectively welcomed the Queen's Baton from Zackalantis in their countries, during the traditional visit marking the opening of the Commonwealth Games. The Baton has reached both Van Janusekstadt and Shahrazad escorted by the military of both countries. In the capitals, it received the homage of both heads of State, and was welcomed through fireworks and shows of traditional folkrore.
    "The Commonwealth Games are always an occasion for our countries to stand united, to remind our common heritage, and find an occasion for joy in the peaceful competition of sports." Grand Duke Conrad said during his official speech at the arrival of the Baton.
    Both Sdudeti-Karabak and North Ajania, although being members of the Tarajani Empire, are also members of the Zack Commonwealth, due to their being formerly territories of the Zack Empire.

    Eventful Week In Grand Haven



    It's been a busy week in Grand Haven as Garagen's recently re-established government churned through the rebuild effort, pushing through numerous sweeping reforms, allocating funds to large public works and reinforcing the much needed federal chain of command. Whilst Capitol Hill has been working meticulously to get the details sorted, Garagen and Shepard have themselves been coining revolutionary international deals, with Garagen hard at work building significantly stronger relations with the governments of Archaian Morea, New Tarajan and Zackalantis as the world reels in the aftermath of a sudden increase in Eurasian hostilities. Likewise, High Commander Shepard has been in direct contract with her military counterparts in those nations. 

    In line with his promise to build a stronger more resilient New-Zealand, President Garagen and his government have signed off on multiple new infrastructure projects, opting to take the rebuild as an opportunity to completely overhaul the infrastructure network and bring the Social Democracy well and truly into the modern era, well ahead of it's counterparts. The major Federal Infrastructure Projects that have just been signed off by Capitol Hill are listed here. 

    Federal Ultra Fast Broadband Initiative :

    The Federal Ultra Fast Broadband Initiative, UFB for short, is the flag bearer of the Garagen administrations bold plans to bring NZ infrastructure above and beyond that of it's main competitors, propelling the Social Democracy well into the modern era and paving the way for the Services, Finance and Information Technology sectors. The Initiative pledges to have Gigabit Internet in all district capitols, 200Mbps capable networks in all cities with more than 2 Million residents, 100Mbps capable networks in all cities with more than 500,000 residents and 30Mbps capable networks in all other regional townships and small cities. This initiative will have the existing copper network completely redundant and out of use by 2020, with state owned Chorus winning majority of the contracts for installation throughout the Social Democracy. However the Tarajani Opus Group won the contracts for supply and technical design of the Fibre networks, in particular the design and supply of the servers and relay boxes required to operate the Gigabit networks in the district capitols.
    NZTA "Safer Journeys" Plan :

    The NZTA has also announced is has received approval and funding required for it's ambitious "Safer Journeys" plan. The Plan with consists of approximately 80 different separate projects aims to have State Highways 1 through 40 converted into at least 2 lane each side, mediated dual carriageway throughout their length. The plan also aims to have the State Highway network brought above the required demand and future proofed till 2030 at current predicted congestion predictions. The project will also see many of the intersections on the State Highways network replaced with roundabouts or complex overpasses with onramps (in higher traffic areas) in an effort to reduce road fatalities. The policy also plans to greatly increase the lighting on the Highway networks, with the the NZTA pledging to have State Highways 1 through 8 fully lit for their entire length. The NZTA is also looking into replacing high risk coastal and mountain roads with tunnel alternatives where possible, and also resealing State Highways 1 through 8 with latest porous layering technology that will allow water to drain through the roads and prevent hydroplaning. In colder climate areas the cats eyes are being replaced with electronic ones that flash blue when they detect ice, warning oncoming drivers of any black ice present in the area. All in all the numerous projects in the Safer Journeys plan aims to have the national road toll drop by over 40%, and have national highway congestion down to half its current level.
    KiwiRail "Back On Track" :
    The KiwiRail "Back On Track" Project ties in closely with sister organisation NZTA's plan to reduce road congestion by shifting as much freight transport as possible onto the rail network. In order to support and encourage the increased load on the rail network, KiwiRail has received substantial funding that will allow it to vastly expand it's existing rail infrastructure, linking the entire rail network onto an electronically monitored and controlled central command system as well as upgrading passenger and freight trains with new model engines that can transport carriages more efficiently and quicker than their road alternative. KiwiRail will also be purchasing nearly 800 new locomotives to add onto their existing roster, replacing older slower model trains. With an additional 1200 expected to be purchased over the next 10 years in time with railroad infrastructure upgrades. Chrysler Groups Electro-Motive Division has unsurprisingly won the majority of the contracts to supply the Freight based locomotives, however the requisition for the passenger high speed transport trains has gone to Tarajani and Antanaresian companies which specialise in the field of high speed passenger trains.
    Ports Authority of New-Zealand "Ports of Tomorrow" Plan :

    The Ports Authority, like the NZTA and KiwiRail, have also received large scale funding and consent from the Federal Government to revitalise, upgrade and expand their ports to make way for increased international trade and tourism through shipping. The Federal Government indicated in a statement that their expectation was that the Ports throughout the Social Democracy were brought up to standard and capable of meeting the increasing demand of international trade. The Ports Authority themselves don't operate any ports directly, with the ports throughout New-Zealand usually being owned and operated on a local basis, usually by District Governments with the exception of Mayview, where the Ports of Auckland and Milton are privately owned and operated. The Ports Authority however is the oversight organisation and will be divying up funding and resource consents to push the upgrade of the ports throughout the Social Democracy to bring them upto Federal expectations.
    Federal Cellphone Initiative:

    The Federal Cell Phone Initiative are one of the more recent initiatives signed off by Capitol Hill. The Initiative aims to have the entirety of the Social Democracy under cellphone coverage by 2020, and 4G+ Networks throughout the major cities and regions. This Initiative happens to land on the cheaper side of things, with the existing network already covering 85% of the landmass required, meaning that the remaining 15% should be carried out without any major complications. The work is expected to be carried out by Chorus on default, however the installation contract is still up for sale, with private company Spark competing fiercely for the contract.

    These are the 5 large scale infrastructure projects signed off by Capitol Hill this week, averaging one per workday. The cost of these and numerous other investments undertaken by the Federal Government are no doubt exorbitant. The Federal Government has already indicated that the funding for these projects come mainly from the Government Treasury, Federal Domestic Bonds and foreign ultra low interest loans from New Tarajan, Antanares and the UKZ. While there is some worry at the rate the Federal Government is expending it's resources and taking on loans, the Garagen Administration as assured the public that the loan is very manageable, and that the majority of it is domestically owed, and not foreign in nature. When questioned as to why the government was taking such drastic steps to "upgrade" rather than rebuild, President Garagen responded that "Rebuilding itself cost about 70% anyway. We might as well throw in the extra 30% and move the nation forward and future proof our infrastructure. We'll reap the benefits of our investments in little to no time" 




    Economy Back In Motion



    The cogs of the New-Zealand economy are finally back in motion following the brutal invasion by Coalition Forces and their scampering withdrawal in the face of strong local retaliation. Today the Chrysler Group enjoyed its first day of full operational capability, as the majority of the New-Zealand workforce return to their jobs this Monday, resilient and ready for the long slog ahead. National morale is at an all time high, with the united and fiercely patriotic population still riding on the high of an unprecedented landslide victory against Coalition Forces in the final months of the invasion. Stock Markets are buoyed by the strong worker morale, high consumer turnover, and the prospect of numerous new international trade deals at the hand of Garagen's government. The prospect of greatly increased trade with the Commonwealth Powers, mainly UKZ, Antanares and New Tarajan has the kiwi market eagerly bouncing on it's heels, waiting for the economic boom that will follow. The Post War Golden Era is well and truly dawning in the Social Democracy, with strong government leadership, exorbitant infrastructure spending and a highly optimistic workforce propelling growth and production turnover to the highest levels ever recorded in recent history. While it's still early days, and far to soon to make any definitive claims on the state of post war New-Zealand and it's economy, reports indicate that the invasion of New-Zealand by coalition forces could, quite ironically, be the best thing to have happened to the Social Democracy since the Lenin's Revolutionary Independence Crusade of the late 1700s.
