    NEWS FROM ANTANARES


    Peace force is returning


    After the conclusion of the vital conference of Velikogovolka, New-Zealand and the former Coalition's Forcers seems to have reach an agreement. The invasion forces retired from the territory of the republic of Grand Heaven and so are proceeding the forces of Antanares, deployed in the region for a peace-keeping operation and to help the local population. According to a statement of the Minister of Defense, the 1st Fleet is preparing to leave the national water of NZ. The RCA's camps are being dismantled and part of the volunteers arrived in the country with the Red Cross and the Corps of Engineer of Antanares is embarking in the ships of the fleet, that will move directly for Cape Wolf, her main base of operation. For the commander of the operation, Adm. Heinrich Von Hausemberg, "That was an exemplary operation, a model for Antanares and the world. We engaged less then four times enemies, mostly band of bandits and pillagers who tried to take advantage of the chaos. We didn't lost a single man and woman in all the time that we were on New Zealand. And that was thanks both to the forces of the republic and of the Coalition, that avoided to engage the RCA's camps and respected the neutrality of our men out there".

    A Morean's Base?


    After the end of the exercises with the Morean Forces the last week, apparently the 4th Fleet didn't returned yet to her base. Most of the ships are anchored not far from the coast of Morea, in a place that whispers over whispers indicated the possible location for a military base of Antanares in the area. No works are currently in the area, so for now it's a mere coincidence. The commander of the 4th Fleet neither the admiralty of Antanares responded to the questions moved from the journalists in the morning, so for now no official statement was released, neither verbal or written, about the situation in Morea. It's unclear what are the intention of the Federation. Aside from an embassy, Morea and Antanares don't share a lot. There is a flow of resources and tourist between the two countries but nothing of really big, like the flows between the Federation and New Tarajan, just saying. Is it an attempt of the Federation to re-launch a sort of new policy about her foreign relationships, in concurrence with the end of the successful conference of Velikogovolka?

    Investments in New Zealand


    The Sarif Industries and the JMC revealed to the press, in the morning, their intentions to start a new program of investments in New-Zealand. According to the declaration of David Sarif, founder and CEO of the SI, his company has the intention to initiate a long program of investments in several part of the nation, that will conduct to the opening of three new plants (One in Blukon, two in New Zealand), where will be directed the production of vehicles and, probably, weapons. Nothing was linked, apparently, with the bio-products and the bio-engineerings products that made the company really famous around the entire world. Not less important, Sarif announced his intention to devolve resources to the three different universities of New Zealand to finance new scholarships and courses for the students of New Zealand and finance new International Exchanges between New Zealand and Antanares "To allow our cultures to meet", said briefly. The JMC didn't release and official investment plan, but probably will follow the same itinerary of the Sarif Industries.
    It's a sort of news that a company, like the SI, will invest overseas on something like the education. In Antanares, companies can finance courses and scholarship, despite the education remains a public sector for all.

    Great Ball of New Tarajan


    His Highness, with her minister for foreign relationships and the deputy of the First Minister is moving to the capital city of New Tarajan for the Great Ball of Vieneskel, an important yearly occurence of the friend country. The Prince leaved Antanares in the country, to be received in the morning from the King of New Tarajan and to take a brief visit of Vieneskel before the opening of the Great Ball.

    FLARES AND POLICE BATONS


    While the Queen's Baton continues its journey throughout the Commonwealth, the norm has been fireworks and celebration.
    However following the baton's visit to Cardiff, Wales and after all the celebration there was an underlying tension in the city.


    The Baton was welcomed by the head of the Unity Government in Wales as well as the Welsh MP to the Commonwealth Council (upper house of UKZ parliament). This was followed by music and dancing.

    However as the baton went ahead to its next destination in Ireland, chaos broke out on thee streets of Cardiff as a popular leader of the Pro-UKZ Cessation movement was shot dead while he was travelling from his office to his home.


    Mr. William Morris, the leader in question has been an extremley vocal pro-UKZ cessationist and has been on the hitlist of several Pro-Ireland cessationists.
    Following his murder mass protests broke out on the streets with Pro Zack and Pro Irish supporters clashing in the middle of the city and riots breaking out.


    Several Welsh citizens have been injured in the baton charges by the police and reports are coming in that at least 7 people (including police) have lost their lives during stone pelting.

    Following this the Zack government released an official statement.

    "The happenings in Cardiff are extremley disturbing. The Commonwealth Games have been used as an excuse to indight violence and hatered in Wales. Something that we must firmly work against.
    The Zack government will be sending in its Royal Reserve Police Force (RRPF) to help local authorties with the situation. We look forward to cooperaton from Ireland on the same issue.
    We also will work hard in order to find the killer of Mr. Morris and bring him/her to justice under Zack Law."


    Analysts warn that this riot in Cardiff today is only the start of something much more terrible to come.

    The Commonwealth Association office in Wales also released a statement.

    "The Games are an opportunity to bond with all members of the commonwealth irrespective of cultural and idelogical differences. Furthermore it iis an association that is outside the politics of the government of the UKZ and is indeed not a branch of or affiliated to Her Majesty's Government of the UKZ. It is therefore not logical to spark up such forms of protest during the celebration of the commonwealth games."

    As the baton now heads to the capital of Ireland there is no telling what is going to happen. One can only hope for a smooth baton relay from this point on.

    Prime Minister Condemns Attack



    As the baton for the Commonwealth Games heads towards Dublin after leaving Wales the Prime Minister, Aldric Burgsman, gave a statement to the Press condemning the assassination of William Morris, a prominent leader in the Pro-UKZ cessation movement.

    "We may disagree with what his politics were but we condemn the assassination of him. He served Wales for years and he stood by his beliefs. My thoughts go out to his family and his friends at this time. We must stand against violence in any form. We will be investigating this attack fully and justice will be served. Until then I call for calm in Wales and to ensure security in both Ireland and Wales I am closing the border and I recommend the UKZ do the same."

    If the investigation goes the way many people think it will the IRA, an organization that has been around for years and is a proponent of Irish Nationalism. The IRA has been the enemy of Ireland in 4 civil wars until it's disarmament ian 2008. Though if they did do this attack it is obvious they are starting to arm again.

    It has also been reported that deputy First Minister of Wales, Martin McGuiness, of the Irish National Party has threatened to withdraw from the unity government effectively bringing it down and setting up new elections. "The First Minister has failed to keep Wales safe and he must not be allowed to continue to serve if he doesn't keep Wales safe. I will strongly consider tendering my resignation in coming days." If McGuiness resigns the WLA will have to meet and elect a new deputy First Minister and if the INP doesn't put one forward the Assembly will collapse and both the Irish and UKZ Governments will have to meet to call new elections.

    COURT OF THE FORMER QUEEN ARRIVES IN VIENESKEL
    MISSING A KEY MEMBER?




    The Queen accompanied by her father Prince Dowager Luceo

    VIENESKEL, NEW TARAJAN == The Royal Family of Arveyres, the Court of the Former Queen, and the highest members of the National Government of Arveyres have all gathered in New Tarajan for the annual celebrations of the Grand Ball of Vieneskel. The most awaited event by the Royal Family, the Great Ball, has strengthened ties between not only Arveyres and New Tarajan but all nations across the world.

    The Royal Court of Ladies-in-Waiting to the Former Queen Sofia IX were first introduced out of the delegation, and were promptly followed by the two most powerful commoners in the National Government: the Prime Minister Victoria Choi and the Deputy Prime Minister Lucille Dessalines, who were followed by the Prince Dowager Luceo (father of the reigning Queen) accompanied by his grandsons Prince Manolo and Prince René. The Prince Dowager was followed by Her Serenity the Queen Sofia X, unaccompanied. The last three to enter the room together were Her Serenity the Former Queen Sofia IX accompanied by her grandchildren Selena, Grand Duchess of Sdudeti-Karabak, and Luceo, Prince of North Ajania.

    There was a key member missing from the Delegation, the Crown Princess Celia, who had recently retired herself from public view due to backlash from her expression of a controversial opinion with her aunt Elaena, the First Lady of New Zealand. Rumors are floating throughout the Arveyran Media that Celia and Elaena will face trial in Arveyres in absentia accusing them of "sympathizing with enemies of the Empire", but none of this has been confirmed. The Crown Princess remains in estate in rural Pontevedra.

    THE OPENING CEREMONY OF THE XX COMMONWEALTH GAMES IN GLASGOW

    Glasgow, Commonwealth Territory of Scotland won the rights to host the 20th Commonwealth Games after the 18th Games in Norlisk.
    Preperations for the games have been on since then and now the city finally sees the games return for the second time and the Scottish people welcomed the games with the eleaborate and celebratory of Opening Ceremony which started at 8:30pm (local time)
    The Commonwealth Games is the largest sporting event in the world and this edition in Glasgow will be the largest ever Commonwealth Games.

    The opening ceremony was held at Celtic Park.


    The opening ceremony promises a celebration of Scottish culture through music and dance.

    It began with the usual countdown and a cameo of sorts on why its great to be scottish... its great culture, its inventors and even its social equality.
    A specially made track called 'Welcome To Scotland' (watch the video here= https://vimeo.com/101818824)



    Right after this the Theme Song for Glasgow 2018- 'Rhythm of My Heart' was released joined by the real people of Glasgow.

    As per Commonwealth Games tradition, continuity plays an important role. Hence the flag of Pombay as the host of the 2016 games, the flag of Scotland as the host of the 2018 games and the Flag of Sdudeti Karabak as the host of the 2020 games were honored and hoisted.
    Following this the head of the Commonwealth, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth Windsor was welcomed to the opening ceremony accompanied by the Scottissh Regiment of the Royal Army and the Royal Air Force performing a fly past over Celtic Park in the colours of the Commonwealth Games.


    Meanwhile the Baton finally landed in Glasgow after leaving Caspian castle with the Queen's message and has travelled across the commonwealth. The baton is a symbol of peace and friendship between all commonwealth members and soon it will complete its epic relay and the queen will finally share her message to the citizens and the atheltes of the commonwealth. But first the atheletes had to be welcomed into celtic park.

    The Atheletes Parade:

    The athletes were welcomed by a modern take to a very popular Scottish Song 'Come In, Come In'. As per tradition the previous hosts lead the athletes parade- Pombay.


    XIX Commonwealth Games Host- Pombay lead the parade. Flag Bearer- Vijay Kumar (CWG Wrestling Champion 2014,2016)

    Latest addition to the Commonwealth, Drakenburg (New-Zealand) and Wales


    The Great Empire of Ireland (Formerly known as The British Free State) also participating in their first Commonwealth Games

    The loudest cheer came at the end for the home team, Scotland. Team Scotland was clad in colourful tartan and kilts.

    After the atheletes all took their seats, the flag of the Commonwealth Games Federation was brought in and hoisted.

    The Baton Arrives:

    Then the baton finally arrived and her majesty gave her address to the athletes (after a hitch in opening the baton).

    At Caspian Castle i placed this message in the specially designed baton and handed it over to the first of many baton bearers. Over the past couple of weeks, the baton has visited the entire commonwealth. The Baton relay is a calling togerther of all people of the commowealth and is a reminder of the shared ideals and goals we all have. And now that baton has arrived here in Glasgow, A city renowed for its dynamic sporting and cultural background and the warmth of its people for the opening ceremony of the Friendly Games.
    To you the atheletes i send my good wishes for success. your accomplishments in the coming days will inspire us and you remind us that young people (those below the age of 25) make up a considerable population of the commonwealth and it is to you that we muust entrust our future.
    I would like to thank the organizing committee and the Viceroyship of Scotland for bringing the games together and putting up such a spectalular show, Best of luck for the days ahead.
    And indeed to the spectators here and across the world. Together we all play a part in strengthing our relationship in this modern ad vibrant association of nations.
    It gives me great pleasure to declare the 20th Commonwealth Games Open!

    This was followed by fireworks and more dancing and singing as the opening ceremony came to a close, the volunteers invaded the floor and broke out in dance and celebration along with the athletes.

    Explosion in Wales



    At a public viewing of the Commonwealth Games a crowd in Wales was thrown into chaos as 3 cars exploded. This is just part of the recent rise in violence in Wales. The official death toll is still unknown but it is expected to be around 25-30 with over 95 people injured. Prime Minister Burgsman condemned the attacks in a statement to the press.

    The loss of innocent human life in any form in any place is both saddening and sickening. Concurrent with our ongoing investigation it seems that the Irish Republican Army is at fault for this. For now we believe the attacks will be centered in Wales but for now we are indefinitely closing the borders between Wales and Ireland until the violence goes away. However, it seems that the main one responsible for this is the current First Minister of Wales from the ZUP. It would be in the best interests of Wales for him to step aside. We mourn with the families of the lost ones and we will aid them in anyway we can. This time calls for leadership and unity. We will offer that."

    Martin McGuiness, the deputy First Minister and leader of the INP has threatened to resign again and has intensified his threat. "The First Minister has shown an amazing lack of leadership when it is needed most. People have died now and it is his fault. He chooses partisanship over leadership and would rather sit in Assembly and ridicule me and my party than be out here showing leadership and taking action."

    The Irish Government has called for calm in Wales and encourages Irish citizens in Wales to stay inside at nights, to not go where they do not need to go, be observant wherever they go, and report anything suspicious. The Government has also demanded that the Welsh Executive order the police to patrol the streets and to hire more police. The First Minister has not responded to these demands. Foreign Minister Charles Kerry has reached out to the UKZ Government to help deliver a united response to Wales.

    UKZ PROMISES TO BRING PERPETRATORS TO JUSTICE

    The Wales vs Mikum cricket match at the commonwealth games in Galsgow, was being projected at a giant screen outdoors in Cardiff when three car bombs detonated injuring and killing several Welsh supporters.
    The Prime Minister took leave from his talks with President Garagen in Glasgow to make this address to the people of Wales and the world.


    "The welsh issue is getting out of hand, and while the UKZ has let the government of Wales handle the issue it now seems that the Welsh governmen is incapable of handling the issue.
    I have commanded the Royal Reserve Police Force (RRPF) to enter Wales and take necessary action to maintain the peace.
    The RAW has singled out several MLAs who have links with the IRA and might be behind the bombings. And it is horryfying to see elected representatives resorting to terrorism to get their point across and get their way.
    We are ready to work with Ireland to ensure peace in Wales, however we must note that Ireland has been distancing itself from the Welsh issue and the zack government is practically single handedly running the law and oorder machinery of Wales. We look forward to more Irish involvement and cooperation.
    We also will only agree to talks until and unless Ireland can prove to us that they are curning the flow of money to the IRA and actively working towards stopping it from carrying out any more attacks in Wales.
    Today its Wales, very soon bombs might go off at Glasgow or Cair Paravel. The UKZ needs to take a strong stance and hence we will not talk to Ireland till we are convinced.


    Several Members of Legislative Assembly (MLAs) of the Welsh Assembly were arrested last night by the Welsh athourities. Most of them being from the pro-Irish party.
    The Welsh police gave the reason behind this as "suspected links to the IRA"
    The RAW (Zack Intelligence) has said that the car bombing has the IRA written all over it.

    The RRPF is also enforcing a virtual curfew in Wales.

    Z-EXIT REFERENDUM BILL DEFEATED IN THE COMMONWEALTH COUNCIL

    The Commonwealth Council, The Upper House of the Zack Parliament voted against the Z-Exit Bill, which came as a shocker as the ZNC, the ruling party has a majority of MPs there.

    The senior most members of the ZNC are in the uppper house and they too voted against the referendum largely because they want to see the government take this decision without a referendum and do it single handedly.

    The PM in Glasgow said that he is seriously considering taking the Z-exit decision unilaterally and without a referendum if that is something that the Commonwealth Councillors (Upper House MPs) are looking for.

    The opposition who is stronglyy opposed to this is claiming that the PM cannot make this decision without parliament approval and if that if he does go ahead with it unilaterally they will take this case to the Zack Supreme Court.

    XX COMMONWEALTH GAMES CLOSING CEREMONY: THE FRIENDLY GAMES COME TO A CLOSE


    After 10 days of intense competition and spectacular athletic feats by the athletes of the Commonwealth, Glasgow prepared itself to bid farewell to the 20th Commonwealth Games.

    The closing ceremony was held in Hampden Park, Glasgow. The theme for the games was "Dance to The Rythm of Your Heart". The stadium was transformed into the scene of a music festival like the Shrove Concert held in Glasgow on Shrove Tuesday (incidently today).
    Each athlete attending the clsoing ceremony was assigned one tent from which they popped out of.


    The rest of the closing ceremony involved musical performances by popular Scottish bands and singers to a cheering crowd in the bleachers and the athletes crowding near the stage.


    Following this began the extremley formal and elaborate hand over ceremony which included speeches from the Viceroy of Scotland, Chairman of the XX Commonwealth Games Organizing Committee andd the Chairman of the XXI Commonwealth Games Organizing Commitee.

    HOST ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE XII GAMES:

    The Viceroy thanked the city and the athletes for a splendid games and also announced the host for the 2022 Games.,

    "Well these games were bloody brilliant. I would like to thank Glasgow for hosting such a spectacular games and also all the atheltes for giving it their very best and winning not just medals but also our hearts. I hope that over the course of these 10 days of fierce competiition we have all made memories to last a lifetime and friendships at these The Friendly Games.
    Glasgow has been preparing for these games for a long time now ever since we were announced as the host at the XVIII Commonwealth Games in Cair Paravel.
    And now i have the honor to announce the Hosts for the XII Commonwealth Games 2022, CAIR MOJAN, DRAKENBRUG (NEW-ZEALAND)


    To this the atheltes from Drakenburg jumped with joy and so did the crowd cheer.

    Then began the handing over ceremony after a speech by the Chairperson of the XXI Commonwealth Games Organizing Committee.
    The handing over ceremony includes the lowering of the Commonwealth Games Flag and handing it over to the next host city, the order of the flags hoisted also changed with the flag of Pombay being taken away and the flag of Scotland taking its place, the flag of Studeti Karabak in the centre and the flag of Drakenburg (New-Zealand) flanking its right.
    This was followed by the showcase of the next host city.

    AULD LANG SYNE:
    The entire closing ceremony ended with a lone bagpiper (who made an appearence at the hand over ceremony in Pombay) standing on the top of the stadium playing Auld Lang Syne this was sung by all the people in attendance and accompanied with fireworks.

More updates and insights on www.ntko.co.tj

    LAST DAYS OF THE GRAND BALL
    At Vieneskel the Royal House hosts the aristocratic world


    The Grand Ball of Vieneskel is reaching its end.
    The beautiful Estate of the Royal House in the outskirts of Astana is still hosting the aristocratic world of Esamir in its luxurious halls and rooms. Delegations from all over the world made their appearance in the Throne Hall, where they were received by King Friederick Wilhelm, Queen Beatrice, and Crown Prince Sigismund.
    The largest delegation came from Aloia, headed by Queen Victoria. But Her Royal Majesty was not the only crowned head: Emperor Augustus (already guest of Their Royal Majesties during his State visit in the Kingdom), Emperor Heinrick, Queen Sofia, and even the Antanaresian Prince Sebastian Valerian, who is known for rarely leaving the Federation, have reached Vieneskel for the occasion. The presence of former Arveyran Queen Sofia IX has been particularly moving, this being her last public appearance. To honour her, King Friederick Wilhelm has bestowed to the former Queen the rank of Grand Dame of the Order of the Golden Tower.
    Former Queen Sofia wasn't the only one receiving gifts. As per tradition of the Grand Ball, the Royal Couple bestowed gifts to all guests: the Arveyran House of Vergara received the confirmation of all the titles already belonging to it in New Tarajan, together with a beautiful four-masts sailing ship, commissioned by the Royal House for the occasion; the Achaian Princes Chrysanthos and Dimosthenis, who have been special guests of Their Royal Majesties for more than a month, have both received the rank of Knights of Grand Cross of the Order of Golden Tower and Knights of the Order of the Golden Fleece, and the titles of Dukes of Creil and Nagele respectively will all related properties; the House of Eurasius saw the elevation of Emperor Augustus to Princely Knight of the Order of the Golden Tower, the rank of Dame of Grand Cross of the same order for Empress Aurelia, and the ranks of Knight and Dame of the same Order to both Justinus and Claudio, former emperors, respectively, with the donation of two ancient marble statues, which has been recently found during archaeological excavations of the Eurasian colony on the Western Tarajani shores; the House of Nordahl received the Duchy of Asten with all related properties (bestowed to Queen Victoria), including the Van Asten Estate in Vieneskel itself; House Higencourt received the Duchy of Achtmaal with all related properties and a new airplane, commissioned by the Royal House, for the Prince; House ver Hohenzbrock received the ranks of Knight and Dame of Grand Cross of the Order of the Golden Tower (bestowed upon the Imperial Couple), and the property of Palace Van Adel in Astana; Zackalantis, through its representative in New Tarajan, also received a palace in Alleskandberg, Palace Van Gould.
    All foreign royals also received gifts from the Landsraad, and members of the Landsraad itself received gifts from the Royal House.


    NEW TARAJAN WELCOMES DEFEAT OF Z-EXIT BILL
    The Kingdom sends condolences to Irish authorities

    Meanwhile, the Tarajani government welcomed the decision of the Commonwealth Council to reject the Z-exit bill. Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen, in a brief intervention outside the Royal Estate, stated that "we wish to improve our relationship with the United Kingdom. Our partnership is strong, and we need to work toward an improvement of it, in all fields." The Prime Minister said that "we do not wish, of course, to express judgmenets in matters belonging to the UKZ. But we wish to see it as our partners also for the future."
    The Prime Minister also took the opportunity to took "the sincerest condolences, by our government, our people, and the Royal House, to the government of Ireland and to its citizens, for the monstrous attack which hit Wales recently." The Tarajani government "will help in whatever possible way" to ensure that those responsibles of the crime will be brought in front of justice.


    SDUDETI-KARABAK RECEIVES FLAG FOR NEXT COMMONWEALTH GAMES

    The Grand Duchy of Sdudeti-Karabak demonstrated the value and virtues of its athletes by winning 100 medals during the last Commonwealth Games, the highest medal tally achieved during the games. But, now, a new honour is given to the Grand Duchy: at the closing ceremony in Glasgow, indeed, Sdudeti-Karabak received the flag to host the next Games, which will take place in Van Janusekstadt.
    The capital city of the Grand Duchy is already preparing itself for the great event: new infrastructure projects have been launched, even with the financial support of the North Ajania and Tarajani governments and financial funds like the International Business Group, the New Tarajan Investment Authority, and others. A new special railway, an highway, and a whole athletic district are rising in Van Janusekstadt.
    Although few concerns are rising among the local population about the influence these new projects will have for the city, many are seeing them as the best things that could have happened to the capital.
    "This city has been behind the scenes for far too long" a local citizen told "We were on all newspapers only when a terrorist attack by the OLK (Organization for the Liberation of Karabak) struck somewhere. But we had recovered since those times, and we need to show this to the world."

    Aloian citizens encouraged to avoid Ireland


    SAINT PETERSBURG -- The Aloian Ministry of State has released a report encouraging Aloian citizens to avoid traveling to Ireland for the next year. Increased violence and unrest in the country were cited as reasons for the travel ban. "We've all seen the newspapers," Minister of State Laura Welch said. "Ireland is becoming more and more of a war zone as time goes on. We're just trying to keep our people safe." The comments and report follow news of more explosions and unrest in the northwestern country. The report also mentioned places and things to do in neighboring countries. Aloian tourism to Ireland isn't a very large industry, but there undoubtedly will be a large impact from a major country like Aloia making such a public comment on Irish terror.

    BISHOP AKAKIOS CONDEMNS TARAJANI PROSELYTIZING BAN
    Threatens Once More to Beatify Piet Gilsheim

    Mystras, Montferrat: In the midst of Morea’s continuing troubles in Norda, religious news abroad has further sparked controversy in Kallimarmaro Cathedral, with Bishop Akakios IV Doukas once again preaching against the largely-secular Federal Aristocratic Kingdom of New Tarajan. Today’s sermon centered on new legislation proposed by the Tarajani Royal Diet that, if passed, would make it criminal for individuals to proselytize in the Kingdom. While the legislation does not target Christians specifically, it follows the recent conviction of a Catholic Tarajani man based on evidence gathered under the secret of confession, at which time the presiding judge declared religion to be incompatible with state business. The continuation of this theme, against religious communities in general and Christians in particular, has broken Bishop Akakios’s brief and grudging silence on the matter of Tarajani religious policy.

    “New Tarajan’s government has thus far claimed to be separate from religious expression,” Akakios preached earlier today. “With this, however, it has absolutely declared itself to be against religious expression. For what greater expression of faith can there be but to spread it to others?”

    The bishop went so far as to point to the protests reported in the Tarajani media among the Kingdom’s own politicians. “This law is intended to ‘protect’ heathens by preventing them from hearing the Lord’s Word,” he said, “yet even many of them are outraged to hear of this legislation! We cannot flatter ourselves into believing that they understand the doom that hangs above their souls, and yearn for us to lead them to the Truth; but we can at least see that our faith is not alone in realizing the importance of argument and persuasion, no matter how poorly or imperfectly those other religions may present their necessarily-flawed case. New Tarajan does not open its arms to people of all religions, but instead closes its heart to every one of them. It is merely our shared misfortune that those who bask in Heaven’s favor are the most easily oppressed among the people of New Tarajan.”

    The fears of the Achaian clergy, represented by Bishop Akakios, are coupled with warnings from legal experts in Mystras and elsewhere. Ioannis Stefanidis, a law professor at the University of the Achaian People in Mystras, already predicts serious complications arising from the interpretation and enforcement of any proselytizing ban. “To proselytize is simply to argue that one’s religion is true while another’s is false,” Professor Stefanidis told the Monitor. “Technically, any discussion about religion held between adherents of competing sects could be considered proselytizing simply because every person in the discussion will approach the question from their own perspective, and will express that perspective to the others. The potential for abuse in this situation, especially among members of a minority religion in frequent contact with the majority religion around them, is considerable.”

    Bishop Akakios has similar thoughts, according to the sermon he delivered in Mystras today. “It is clear—it is more than clear—that the government of New Tarajan has made Christianity its enemy,” he declared. “It has targeted our faith without hesitation and without scruple; it has declared that our religious beliefs are at fault for its own societal failings, and excuses its onslaught as a response to our supposed evils. Our brethren in New Tarajan now live in fear of future persecution, crying out from the last blow while waiting for the next. Already Christians have lost their lives to the oppression of the Tarajani government! Who cannot already see the line of martyrs stretching from Piet Gilsheim to the last Christian in New Tarajan? It cannot be long before the Kingdom is left a wasteland, fit only for dogs and heathens, hated by God and His people!”

    The Blue Palace has yet to comment on any official response to New Tarajan, despite the attendance of Princes Chrysanthos and Dimosthenis at the annual Tarajani Grand Ball when the legislation was first proposed. Sources inside the palace do confirm, however, that the princes inquired about anti-Christian policies within New Tarajan, specifically the decision of the Witteberg Court of Justice in violation of Christian practice, during their stay with King Friederick Wilhelm II and his family in Astana. What response they received, if any, is not known.

    30 WELSH MLAs ARRESTED BY THE ROYAL RESERVE POLICE FORCE


    30 MLAs (Members of Legistlative Assembly) of the Welsh Assembly were arrested by the Royal Reserve Police Force of UKZ due to alledged links with the IRA.
    All the MLAs are from the Irish National Party (INP).
    These arrests come at an interesting time as the Welsh Legiistlative Assembly is scheduled to meet soon to finalise its budget for the coming year.
    The Zack Union Party (ZUP) has proposed creating the Welsh Security Task Force for Unity (WSTFU) which will be endowed with great power and will in effect act like a secret police.

    The WSTFU has the power to carry out searches of people's homes without warrant, detain individuals for up to 24 hours without warrant on the sole basis off suspicion of intent to incite violence, the WSTFU bill if passed enforces a curfew throughout wales.

    A bill similar to this called the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) was functional in the UKZ till it was struck down by the liberal government in 2016. The AFSPA though was last used when the second world war broke out, last century.
    The AFSPA was brought into legistlation in 1905 by the ZNC government and the ZNC has been one of its biggest supporter suggesting that it gives the state a better chance to control violence and chaos in areas of conflict and unrest, therefore it is no coincidence that the ZUP in the Welsh Assembly is proposing the WSTFU which is so similar to the Zack AFSPA.

    With the INP firmly opposed against it calling it a breach of human rights, there will now not be much opposition in the assembly to the First Minister's bill and should pass easily when the house meets in a few days.

    The Zack Government has released a statement after the mass arrest.
    "After having analyzed the eviidence very carefully we have found that these 30 MLAs that have been arrested havve clear links with the IRA and hence the terror attacks in Wales. We are astnonished that democratically elected representatives are resorting to terror to gain political mileage, This is something that we will not allow. The 30 MLAs have been taken into Zack Custody and will be tried for the crimes in a Zack court.
    We do nnott think that the Assembly should be delayed and must go on with the discussions.


    HOW 4 UNION KINGDOMS AND 2 COMMONWEALTH TERRITORIES WILL DETERMINE THE FUTURE OF THE OMNI

    As the OMNI and pro-OMNI supporters in the UKZ breathed a collective sigh of relief as the Z-Exit Referendum bill failed in the Commonwealth Council, the ZNC Prime Minister is not giving up his campaign to leave the OMNI promising that now it will happen without a referendum.

    The PM has however admitted that he will have to put leaving the OMNI on the backburner for a while, hinting at moving ahead with it after the mid-term elections next year but as 6 states of the UKZ have finished polling and results will come in day after the future of the Prime Minister's party in the upper house (Commonwealth Council) remains uncertain.
    With the ZNC maintaining 70 seats in the upper house and the opposition 69, the margin of seats are awfully close.

    These state elections could just push the opposition (ZPP+Conservative Coalition) past the ZNC in the upcoming mid-terms, and that puts the prospect of leaving the OMNI at risk. (In the Zack system, the mid term elections, MPs to the upper house are elected by the state assemblies) this would mean that the Prime Minister will have to try and move with Z-exit even faster than before.

    OOC: I am basing these elections on the results of the actual state elections in India. so depending on how the results turn out here i will make the results for UKZ

    NEW TARAJAN IS STILL A SOVEREIGN STATE
    Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen expressed "dismay" and "disappointment" about foreign attacks on TSDP proposal

    Astana.
    Just as he came back from Vieneskel for the first meeting of the Royal Council after the Grand Ball, Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen had the occasion to speak loud and clear about the reactions registered by foreign media about the law recently proposed by the TSDP in the Tarajani Royal Diet about the restriction on the public promotion of religion.
    He did so in a press conference he specifically held at the Palace of Government.
    "I really don't know how to start." he said "What happened in the recent days has made me feel dismay and deep disappointment. Not only about how foreign media described a law which they evidently didn't read, but also about how some religious groups and individuals reacted to it."
    He continued by speaking about Bishop Akakios:"With all due respect for a foreign citizen, I shall say to Bishop Akakios that words as those pronounced by him against this country will no more be accepted nor tolerated. This individual, although a private citizen of a foreign country, keeps insulting our people and our Kingdom. This is unacceptable. New Tarajan, I will not hide it, has its problems. We are far from perfect. But, still, in our country we do not detain people for their faith or belief (or non-belief), nor do we force people into accepting a specific moral code just because it is provided for by our own religion. Everyone is free, here, to believe what he or she wants to believe."
    "We are a tolerant people. But what we do not tolerate is exactly the kind of behavior Akakios promotes: to enforce his own views over many others, just because he believes it is the Truth. This happened in the County of Gravan, last year, and it happened also in other towns and places of this Kingdom, with attacks against people just because they didn't believe in the faith of their attackers. Luckily for us, there have been only few, localized, cases. But our political establishment clearly felt that it had to intervene, in order to regulate the subject, and to ensure the safety and well-being of all our citizens." the Prime Minister said.
    "Those who accused us of trying to fight religion evidently forgot that the Kingdom of New Tarajan has an official State religion, which is Jahanism." De Witte-Beulen stated "Those who said that our country will perish through fire or other catastrophes, and that millions of innocent people will die and suffer and be punished eternally, just for believing in another faith, or for not believing at all, instead, are the living demonstration of how this law was much needed."
    "By the way, I personally issued an order which declared Akakios as non-welcome individual here in New Tarajan. This is the least I could do, after this man, who claims to speak for some god, said that the murderer of a young girl was...a martyr." the Prime Minister says, with strong words, almost unexpected by journalists and analysts alike "Although I'm almost sure he will be grateful for my decision. He'll never visit such a cove of heatens." he chuckled, briefly.


    Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen during the press conference.

    "About what happened in Eurasia, I wish to express, also on behalf of King Friederick Wilhelm, my gratitude, and the gratitude of the citizens of this country, to Eurasian authorities, which handled a difficult situation avoiding that our embassy, full of innocent employees of our State, was stormed. Although I deeply regret that there were victims, we need to be thankful that there weren't more." the Prime Minister also said: "And I also wish to thank the Aloian Lutheran Church, and its Tarajani branch, for calling for a peaceful behavior. We don't need to build walls against each other. Instead, we need to embrace dialogue."
    The Prime Minister than reminded that "The law approved by the Diet will still need approval by the Landsraad, as per our legislative procedures. However, differently from what many media said, that law doesn't outlaw religion, or freedom of religion. It simply puts those much needed for limits to the influence of religion in politics, and to its most violent, extremist, manifestations." He called for "respect, from all sides, for our legislative process, waiting for what the Landsraad will say on the subject."
    When asked to comment about the incoming elections in the UKZ, instead, the Prime Minister was stony:"As we pretend respect for our own sovereignty, so we pay the same respect for that of other countries. So, I do not express any comment about these elections. Whatever the outcome, I am sure that New Tarajan and the UKZ will continue on their path of friendship, mutual respect, and protection of common interests."

    AKAKIOS DEFIANT AGAINST TARAJANI PERSECUTION
    Praises Eurasian “Martyrs,” Urges Resistance Against Oppression

    Mystras, Morea: Bishop Akakios IV Doukas responded to the latest news from New Tarajan earlier today in a fashion that even he acknowledged as “predictable.” As news about the initial passage of New Tarajan’s Christian-targeted proselytizing ban arrived in Morea, Bishop Akakios once more ascended the pulpit to denounce the persecution of the Christian faith abroad by pagan-led, “supposedly-secular” governments. “The Enemy himself must frolic in New Tarajan,” the bishop said to the angry congregation in Kallimarmaro Cathedral. “You may be sure that I would have no interest in joining him there—except to demonstrate how the law of man must always bow before the Word of God!” Referring to his ‘non-welcome’ status in the Kingdom, the bishop added, “The Prime Minister’s gift is greatly appreciated.”

    Tensions between the Federal Aristocratic Kingdom of New Tarajan and the Achaian Church have been high for months, since the Kingdom’s government first noted and criticized the Achaian-led Nordan Mission and the establishment of Christian dioceses in Norda. Tarajani news sources have subsequently reported on a concerted effort by the Kingdom’s government, led by both Duke Bernhard Van Aardenne-Gliefen and now Margrave Ulrich De Witte-Beulen, to marginalize the Christian population of the country, drawing outrage from Christian communities and leaders both in New Tarajan and throughout Esamir. Bishop Akakios has been the most vocal critic of the surge of anti-Christian rhetoric and policy, and has continued to express the Lord’s anguish at the treatment of His people, as well as the divine punishment that awaits those taking part in the national crime.

    Similar language flavored the bishop’s response to news out of Eurasia that at least thirteen Christians had been killed by security forces in their efforts to oppose both the Tarajani law as well as similar policies already adopted by the pagan government of the Empire. “We weep to hear of this atrocious violence against our brethren in Eurasia,” Akakios said. “The Lord knows their suffering. But He, and we too, can only applaud the sacrifices being made in His Name by those martyrs whose love of Him has marked them for persecution and slaughter. To say more of Eurasia is unnecessary; I will only point out that what Eurasia is, New Tarajan is fast becoming. In time there may be no land truly safe for a Christian to reside.”

    He added, “Thank God that, today at least, we may still reside in His bosom in Morea!”

    Bishop Akakios has previously expressed his opinion that Morea’s own place in the Lord’s favor might have been at risk, after a number of policy decisions by Sultan Ioannis IX Kallergis with which the bishop vehemently disagreed, prominent among them being the introduction of pagan soldiers into Morea from Montferrat, Antanares, and—most worryingly for Akakios—New Tarajan. However, Sultan Ioannis and Bishop Akakios have found common ground as of late by focusing their efforts on the Christianization of Norda, and the Sultan’s recent affirmation of his support for Bishop Gavriil of Raitia has returned the Blue Palace to Kallimarmaro’s good graces. Yet neither Sultan Ioannis nor any representative from the Sultanate’s government has spoken regarding either the Tarajani policy or the Christian protests in Eurasia and elsewhere as a result of it, leading some observers to suggest that Bishop Akakios’s shoulder-to-shoulder stand with Sultan Ioannis may be no more permanent than it was at the beginning of the Nordan Mission just before Christmas. Officially, New Tarajan remains an important ally for Morea, whose national defense has been taken up in large part by Tarajani and Antanaresian forces, and whose princes are now officially knights and dukes enrolled in Tarajani chivalric orders. As one political expert put it to the Monitor, “His Majesty has to balance his religious scruples regarding New Tarajan with his nation’s religious vulnerability regarding Eurasia. In a contest between Tarajani and Achaian Christians, Achaian defense must always come first.”

    Prime Minister Condemns UKZ


    Prime Minister Aldric Burgsman hit back at the UKZ today for the arrest of 30 MLA's all from the INP. Not long ago the Royal Police force in Wales arrested 30 MLA's in what the Prime Minister is calling a "Disgusting political stunt."

    He addressed the nation after the arrest of the MLA's condemning the UKZ for the politically motivated attacks.

    "My Fellow Irishmen and Irishwomen,

    The UKZ has just arrested 30 MLA's in Wales. All of which are from the Irish National Party. Their claim was that these members have ties to the IRA. Claims which are completely false. These MLA's have no ties to the IRA. The actions of the UKZ are disgusting and I condemn the UKZ for committing these politically motivated acts. They are showing the same hatred towards the INP that the IRA is showing towards humanity. We will not stand for it and we demand the immediate release of these MLA's."

    BRAWL IN THE WELSH LEGISTLATIVE ASSEMBLY

    Even without the 30 INP MLAs the Welsh Legistlative Assembly began its budget session Monday morning with the Viceroy's Address.
    The Viceroy pointed out several issues that the MLAs need to focus on but it was rather surprising to see the Viceroy (Crown representative of the UKZ to Wales) only mention the ongoing violence in Wales in passing that to only using that to criticise the 30 arrested MLAs who had ties with the IRA and sending out a warning to all others that the same fate met anyone who is found guilty of having ties with the IRA.

    The session then started with the First Minister proposing the WSTFU bill on the floor of the house which after a vote was quickly accepted however as soon as debate on the WSTFU bill could start the INP MLAs started shouting slogans and occupied the well of the house thereby stalling the proceedings of the house.
    Certain ZUP MLAs also entered the well of the house shouting slogans against the IRA the INP and that's when the first fist flew and all the MLAs were now engaged in heated battle in the well of the house.



    This was ended only after the the house marshalls were called in and dragged the INP MLAs out, following this the speaker of the house suspend several INP MLAs and two ZUP MLAs reducing the INP number to only 10 in the house. The proceedings continued after the lunch break and the WSTFU Bill was passed with only 10 votes against.
    The First Minister has informed the Viceroy that the bill will be enforced in totality within 24 hours.

    UKZ: LET US DO WHAT WE NEED TO DO

    Following the condemnation from the Irish for the arrest of the 30 INP MLAs the UKZ has replied to the allegations levied against her by the Irish PM.
    Her Majesty's Minister of External Affairs, Mrs. Thatchwood replied to the Irish PM at the press conference outside her office in Foreign Ministry House, Cair Paravel.


    I am shocked at the words coming out of his excellencies mouth. We have a saying in South UKZ "ulta chor, kotwal ko daate" which means 'the theif scolds the policeman' and this saying is so apt for the position Ireland has taken on this issue.
    Wales is supposed to be a joint ownership of Irleand and UKZ however when the violence started erupting the Wales just before the Commonwealth Games Irleand practically washed its hands of Wales, closing off its border and requesting Zack help with the issue.
    All Ireland did was express sadness and regret at the happenings in Wales but the UKZ had begun to launch intense investigations into the happenings in Wales and have come up with shocking findings and evidence.

    Today when the UKZ is actually doing something to prevent more blood shed in Wales and is actively working towards the stabilisation and normalisation of the Welsh situation we are being condemned by Irleand.

    Ireland has no proof, let me repeat this NO PROOF that those 30 MLAs are innocent, they have not launched any investigation against the IRA all they have alluded to is that the IRA is bad, nothing more. This has also not gone ignored by the international community what with Aloia placing travel bans to Ireland.

    I will request Ireland to support us in our efforts to bring back peace to Wales or give up Wales and hold their peace.
    Let us do what we need to for a safer Wales.
    Thank you.

    SULTAN IOANNIS TO KING FRIEDERICK WILHELM: “WE CAN TALK ABOUT THIS”
    Proposes High-Level Meeting Between Tarajani and Achaian Courts

    Mystras, Morea: As news of religious and sectarian conflict continues to make the rounds throughout Esamir, Sultan Ioannis IX Kallergis has come out in public support of Christian communities throughout the world that suffer under the oppression of their secular or pagan governments. “In the earliest days of our enlightenment, the Achaian people were similarly tried,” the Sultan said. “With the Lord’s timely help, we survived the experience, and now revel in our freedom. No one can predict the plan by which our Christian brethren abroad will be made safe, but I am confident that the Lord will provide.” In addition to encouragement, however, Sultan Ioannis put forward a concrete proposal in order to ease the burden on the Christian community of New Tarajan, whose government’s targeting of its Catholic minority has sparked the most recent cycle of sectarian violence throughout the world. “We Achaians are torn with the knowledge that our friends and defenders in New Tarajan are likewise the oppressors of our brothers abroad,” His Majesty said. “But I am confident that the friendship between our nations, strengthened so recently by my sons’ attendance at the Grand Ball, will mark the road by which we can settle our differences and bring peace and solace to the Christians of New Tarajan.” Specifically: “From monarch to monarch, I ask that King Friederick Wilhelm and the relevant ministers of his government accept to meet with me and select ministers of my court, including my sons, Chrysanthos and Dimosthenis, who have already returned to me draped in the gifts of Tarajani good will. By such a gathering, I am certain that we will all arrive at a peaceful and mutually-acceptable solution.”

    Princes Chrysanthos and Dimosthenis have recently returned to Morea following their extended visit to New Tarajan, where they helped to strengthen the relationship between the Federal Aristocratic Kingdom and the Sultanate. Tarajani, as well as Antanaresian, support has brought not only foreign-made weapons into Morea, but also foreign soldiers, especially with the construction of an Antanaresian military base on Morean soil near the border with the Empire of Eurasia. These developments have made Morea safer and more secure than ever, which has been greatly appreciated by Achaians throughout the country both due to the Sultan’s open immigration policy and a provocative incursion from Eurasia two months ago. However, Achaians in the capital, largely insulated from the national dangers, have struggled to accept the new situation, and throngs have rallied behind Bishop Akakios IV Doukas of Mystras in his push to remove these foreign elements from Morea entirely. While Bishop Akakios and Sultan Ioannis have aligned their efforts in the creation of three Christian dioceses in eastern Norda, the bishop’s forceful condemnation of the new Tarajani law is at odds with Sultan Ioannis’s more conciliatory approach, and it is likely that another rift may arise as a result.

    Acknowledging this point, the Sultan addressed a statement directly to Kallimarmaro: “Words alone will not preserve the well-being of our Christian brethren abroad. This is a time for action, and I am now taking those actions that are available to me. I pray to God, as all Achaians do, that the Tarajani government can be made to reverse, or at least mitigate, the disastrous decision that it is in the process of making.”

    HIS MAJESTY ANSWERS TO SULTAN IOANNIS PROPOSAL
    Landsraad members concerned about legitimacy of intervention

    Astana.
    In the midst of the religious turmoils generated worldwide by the decision of the Tarajani Diet to approve a law enforcing limitations to the public use of religion, finally an answer came from the Royal Palace to the proposal made by Achaian Sultan Ioannis IX Kallergis to convene a meeting between the two courts to discuss the issue of Christian communities in New Tarajan. An attempt to resolve the whole issue peacefully and diplomatically, however raising concerns in many circles inside the Kingdom about the legitimacy of the Sultan's and (eventually) King Friederick's interventions.
    The answer came directly from the mouth of King Friederick Wilhelm II, during his inaugural speech of the Landsraad session which will discuss, during these days, the law approved by the Diet.
    "The words from His Majesty Sultan Ioannis cannot be but welcome in this Court. His wish to resolve the issue through debate and common understanding is more commendable than ever during these troubled days, when we continuously hear of tragedies related to religion from every corner of the world." he said.
    "I am also well aware of the concerns and worries that this proposal has caused to rise inside some circles, and among the members of this same noble assembly. As sovereign of this country, I have the duty to answer these concerns with the outmost clarity, and my answer is: I will never interfere with the regular legislative process of the Kingdom, or of one of my States, without a reason which could lay only in an immediate threat of the survival of the Kingdom itself."
    This statement was immediately welcomed by applauses from the benches of the Landsraad, before the King could keep going with his speech:"Thus, if the intention of His Majesty the Sultan is to meet with me in order to alter the course of this particular law, my answer is no." he said "This bill, as every other proposal, will pass through the normal legislative procedures. Thus, it will be the duty of this assembly, now that the Royal Diet has approved it, to discuss its future."


    "However, if the goal is to discuss, as friends, the whole issue of Christian communities inside the borders of this Kingdom, since I understand how this concerns our Achaian friends, then my answer is yes. Although, first and foremost, I have to make a point: every Tarajani citizen, no matter his or her ethnicity, his or her faith, his or her political affiliation...I repeat: every Tarajani citizen, will always be treated as equal to all others. We are proud of our political freedoms, we are proud of the incredible degree of civil rights that we enjoy under our laws, among the most liberal of the whole world. To say that there is persecution against one faith or the other, actively promoted by the government, is false,and it cannot be otherwise."
    Friederick Wilhelm took the occasion also to give his personal condolences to Aloia, for the recent tragedy which hit the country:"It is with deep sorrow that I heard of the news from the Kingdom of Aloia. My sincerest condolences, on behalf of the whole country, go to the families of the victims and to the country as a whole." He also praised the role of the Aloian Lutheran Church (and its Tarajani branch) during the discussion of the law:"Differently from others, who I'll not mention by name here, the Lutheran Church always kept a respectful opposition, without threatening our country with alleged fires from the skies and so on."
    The words of King Friederick Wilhelm have been met with different responses from the Tarajani political environment and public opinion alike: while many (the Landsraad, above all) have praised his decision not to interfere with the legislative process and, particularly, with the Landsraad prerogatives, others have reminded that, in Tarajani practice, the King can always interfere with the legislative power, first by actively participating at the works of the Landsraad (where the Royal States are represented by Governors, and which is shared usually by the King himself), secondly through his power to sign (or refuse to sign) the laws approved by the Diet and the Landsraad, which will subsequently be transformed into royal decrees. Thus, the space of maneuver for the King is wide.
    However, as many analysists and politicians underlined, the choice of King Friederick Wilhelm is not without reason, nor precedent: the King has made a personal policy of him to keep well-defined boundaries between the royal prerogatives and the other powers of the Kingdom; also, interference with the Landsraad is politically more risky than with the Diet (even Conrad III did it only few times, and out of strict necessity, and Conrad IV openly refused to do so in several occasions). To mingle with the Major Houses of the Landsraad and their jealously-protected political action is always very dangerous, even for the King. And the Landsraad already clearly demonstrated that it is highly interested in working on this delicate issue.
    Finally, the King's own political vision is, if not favourable, at least not opposed, to the new law: while Friederick Wilhelm has always been an open promoter of religious peace and mutual trust among different communities inside the Kingdom, the most recent events deeply troubled him, not least the continuous attacks from Bishop Akakios, which caused a rising cry of outrage from the public opinion.

    SULTAN REITERATES DESIRE TO MEET WITH KING FRIEDERICK WILHELM, TARAJANI MINISTERS
    Desires “Clarity and Understanding” On Both Sides

    Mystras, Morea: Sultan Ioannis IX Kallergis of Morea has once again called for a high-level meeting between himself and King Friederick Wilhelm II of New Tarajan, as well as whatever ministers and courtiers are deemed necessary on either side, as a result of the escalating religious tensions that have gripped Esamir in general and the Morean-Tarajani relationship in particular. “I am not about to put aside the prospect of a meeting simply because His Majesty has laid down limits on his own power,” Sultan Ioannis said to the media, referring to King Friederick Wilhelm’s insistence that he will not interfere with his Kingdom’s legislative process. “It is my duty to the Achaian people, and to Christendom as a whole, to determine the state of matters in New Tarajan more directly than I can accomplish from afar. For my part, I intend to achieve clarity and understanding, and I further intend to bring the same to the government and the people of New Tarajan regarding the Sultanate’s official stance on the protection and advocacy of Christians abroad.”

    The Sultan also noted other portions of King Friederick Wilhelm’s speech. “I am encouraged by His Majesty’s insistence on religious equality in New Tarajan,” the Sultan said. “While it is not quite clear that the rest of the Tarajani government believes in the same values, I can be sure that the Crown does not despise the Christian people over whom it rules. It is my hope that the Tarajani legislature will take this good will to heart, and I intend to speak with members of that legislature to encourage just such a sentiment while I visit New Tarajan.

    “Overall, I am pleased to hear that His Majesty has agreed in principle to meet with me in the near future on this matter, regardless of the effect or lack thereof that it may have on the passage of this unfortunate law.”

    Other Achaians are less enthusiastic on the matter. Bishop Akakios IV Doukas of Mystras has also responded to King Friederick Wilhelm’s address, which alluded to a number of the bishop’s sermons warning of the impending wrath of God directed toward the government and the people of New Tarajan. Speaking from Kallimarmaro Cathedral, Bishop Akakios called on Sultan Ioannis to reject any compromise that would indicate that Morea accepts the passage of the anti-proselytizing legislation. “Hypocrisy and ignorance flow freely from the lips of this King of the Damned,” the bishop said from the pulpit today. “How can he claim that all religions are accepted in New Tarajan when his own government’s rationale for this detestable legislation featured an attack on the Christian religion? He has truly separated himself from the legislative process, that much is clear—enough that his own legislators’ words are unknown to him!”

    Akakios added, “Let the heathen prince look to the skies for fire and brimstone; let him exhaust his eyes straining against the sun. The Lord in His good time will provide, for none escape—and only the damned would want to escape—Judgment Day.”

    Sultan Ioannis has yet to respond to Bishop Akakios’s statement, but a spokesman for the Blue Palace is quoted as saying, “His Anointed Majesty intends to demonstrate Morea’s official stance on this matter to the Federal Aristocratic Kingdom of New Tarajan. It is His Majesty alone who determines that stance, and His Majesty alone who may alter it at any time. King Friederick Wilhelm may be sure that His Anointed Majesty does not carry brimstone in his travel bag.”

    BREAKING: SHOOTING IN JULIUM
    Numerous shootings reported throughout the city; Police order all citizens to shelter indoors.

    BREAKING
    Early this morning as residents of Julium awoke for the workday, numerous explosions ripped through the Forum Romanum and the Regio Ministeria. Early reports indicate that as many as thirty Eurasians were killed in the blasts and hundreds more injured. Almost immediately thereafter, masked gunmen opened fire in residential districts and places of business, and as many as 70 people have been killed thus far. The Police have completely locked down the city, and several of the gunmen are believed to still be at large, as shots are still being heard throughout the city. The Ministry of the Police has ordered all citizens to shelter indoors where possible and to avoid going outside. A state of Civil Emergency was also declared in the capital, with the Senate and the Julian Palace going into lockdown. Reports indicate that an attack was mounted on the Julian Palace as well, but it was quickly repulsed by the Praetorian Guard, who took no casualties.

    The Police have reported that they suspect there to be around ten gunmen, three of whom have been shot and killed by the authorities. What is known thus far as been compiled below:

    • 8:01 AM: Explosion in the Regio Ministeria, headquarters of the Ministries of War, Diplomacy, and Frumentarii are damaged.
    • 8:05 AM: Explosion in the Forum Romanum, dozens of people killed.
    • 8:07 AM: Police issue terrorist attack warning.
    • 8:10 AM: Prefect Virginia Raetina enacts city-wide emergency, suspends transportation services due process.
    • 8:30 AM: Gunmen open fire in the Forum Romanum, Pantheon, Titus IX Primary School, Julian Palace, and Ministry of Culture.
    • 8:40 AM: After short gun battle, Praetorian Guard kill two gunmen outside Julian Palace.
    • 9:04 AM: Reports of shots fired at a Deosian conference in the Temple district.
    • 9:21 AM: Police report that one gunmen outside the Pantheon has been killed, one remains inside.


    It appears that these attacks were all coordinated, and that they were designed to target the heat of Eurasia and its culture. The intent of the attacks, however, has yet to be determined, as none of the gunmen have been taken alive and the majority are still at large. The attempt to attack the Julian Palace failed almost immediately, but the other gunmen are still free and committing attacks on the citizens of Julium, with the Police attempting to stop them. Further updates will be given as events warrant. The Imperial Broadcasting Network encourages all residents of Julium to remain inside for their own protection. Vivat Eurasia.

    UPDATE: Four more of the gunmen have been killed by police, two at the Deosian religious conference, one at the Titus IX Primary School, and one at the Forum Romanum. At present, around five are suspected to still be at large somewhere in the city, however reports of gunfire have petered off. It is believed that the attacks, for the time, have stopped. However, the police are still encouraging all citizens to shelter indoors, and the Civil Emergency has not been ended. The Ministry of Imperial Relations has reported that His Imperial Majesty Emperor Augustus IV is safe and remains in the Palace, and that all Prime Ministers and necessary imperial functionaries are also safe.

    At present, including those killed in the bombing, 142 people are believed to have been killed in these attacks. This figure includes the five dead gunmen. The Police have stated that they believe this to have been the work of a terrorist sect, but by whom it was perpetrated remains unknown. It is possible that these attacks were linked to the closure of several churches by the Police Ministry earlier this week, however any links such as that are tentative and the Ministries of Justice and Police have yet to confirm or deny these claims. It is expected that the Ministries of the Police and the Frumentarii will launch a manhunt for the surviving gunmen soon, after which they will be apprehended and brought to justice.

    UPDATE 2: The death toll has risen to 178 people slain by terrorist actions. This includes fifty-eight school children who were attending class at the Titus IX Primary School. His Majesty Emperor Augustus addressed the Eurasian people by radio from the Julian Palace, stating "[f]riends and countrymen. As I speak, terrorist attacks of unprecedented proportions are underway in the Julium area. There are dozens killed, there are many injured. It is a horror.
    We have, on my decision, mobilized all forces possible to neutralize the terrorists and make all concerned areas safe. I have directed the deployment of legionary reinforcements to bolster the
    Vigiles [police] They are currently in Julium, to ensure that no new attack can take place. Two decisions will be taken: A state of provincial emergency will be declared, which means that some places will be closed, traffic may be banned, and there will also be searches which may be decided throughout both the Capitoline Prefecture and Argentomagus.

    The second decision I have made is to close the borders. We must ensure that no one enters to commit any crimes and that those who have committed the crimes that we have unfortunately seen can also be arrested if they should leave the territory. This is a terrible ordeal which once again assails us. We know where it comes from, who these criminals are, who these terrorists are. In these difficult moments, we must — and I think of the many victims, their families and the injured, the innocent children murdered in their halls of learning — show compassion and solidarity. But we must also show unity and calm. Faced with terror, the Empire must be strong, it must be great and the imperial authorities must be firm. We will be. We must also call on everyone to be responsible. What the terrorists want is to scare us and fill us with dread. There is indeed reason to be afraid. There is dread, but in the face of this dread, there is an Empire that knows how to defend itself, that knows how to mobilize its forces and, once again, will defeat the terrorists. My compatriots, we have not completed the operations. There are still some that are extremely difficult. It's at this moment that the security forces are staging an assault, especially in a place such as Julium. I ask you to keep all your trust in what we can do with the security forces to protect our nation from terrorist acts. Vivat Eurasia et vivat imperium.

    NEWS FROM ANTANARES


    Raised the security level of the main cities


    After the shots in both Eurasia and Aloia, the Federal Government has decided to increase the security level from V to IV, a pre-alert status in all the nation. To the decision has followed a statement from the Government, who announced "We raised our security alert as precautionary measure. We aren't, actually, worried about any kind of attack in our cities but, after has watched two nations in the world be hit from these infamous acts, we decided to prevent. We are investigating about the possibilities of some emulator acts here in Antanares. The next 48 hours are probably the most sensitive one. After the investigations, the government will decide, with the AFS and the local governments if continue or not to maintain the level IV".

    A spokesperson from the Velikogovolka AFS section's headquarters, speaking with some journalists outside the palace, has declared that, for now, the AFS is just controlling with the local police, the possibility of emulator acts. According to the spokesperson, in Antanares doesn't exist a concrete possibility of an attack with a religious matrix. The country doesn't present any consistent religious group. The main presence, in this camp, are the follower of the Unmentionables, an ancient cult of the old Antanares. Also, in the east of the country, a minority of christian is present, especially in the area of Sessadraina, where is present one of the few cathedral still in use in the entire Federation.
    Antanares is not famous for be a nation favorable to the diffusion of any cult or religion, expect for the Unmentionables's one which, if not supported, is largely tolerated from the government. Other religion, especially the monotheistic, are contrasted. That created frictions, sometimes, with other governments and with some minorities, especially in the past centuries but, from the XVIII country lives a sort of "religious peace". The AFS and the government are reassuring the population that every measure will be taken and every efforts actions taken to avoid the increase of the religious contrasts and, in case, the arrive of terror groups and lone wolfs in the country.

    Velikogovolka


    Organizations of the colonies


    Antanares, according to the common geographical map, is present in two different continents. For the legislation of Antanares, expect for the State of Targahar, the other non-territorial lands are considered colonies. For the Bruma and for the Government this situation will be no more. Thanks to the last legislative act passed in the Federal Parliament, the "Colonies modernization act", all the territories will be equated with the title of "State". The State of Argosia and the State of Tyrana will be the two now states that will enter in the Federation. The process, according to the Act, will take place in, at least, one year and half. The Colony Administration will be not dismantled but adjourned to became the support structure of the two future local government.
    This re-organization is seen, by most, as an attempt of the government to reassure the nation about the so-called "centrism of the function". The colonies, in fact, were under the direct control of the Federal Commission for Colonial Affairs and, from most states, was see as an attack to the federal principle of Antanares. With the formation of the state, instead, the colonies will be equal to the mainland and that's will grant them the freedom of all the other parts of the Federation. Of course, the maneuver will grant to the government the possibility of doesn't be involved in the financial and in the ethnic problems of the two regions, where are present sensitive minorities. For some people, this act is a manner of the government to demonstrate how, without their funds and resources, for the local governments is impossible to maintain the actual living levels.

    KING FRIEDERICK WILHELM WILL MEET SULTAN IOANNIS
    The news directly from the Royal Palace after the Sultan's clarifications

    Astana.
    "King Friederick Wilhelm deeply appreciated the words used by His Anointed Majesty Sultan Ioannis IX, providing much needed for clarifications about the goal of the eventual meeting between the two Courts. Thus, and in perfect line with what His Majesty already said in front of the Landsraad, he will meet with the Sultan."
    These are the words used by a spokesperson of the Royal House during a press conference held this morning at the Royal Palace in Astana. The meeting between the heads of State of New Tarajan and Morea, at the end, will take place.
    Such an outcome looked impossible only few days ago, with the Landsraad fearing for its legislative prerogatives, and the Diet looking with suspect to a possible overture to Morean position, which are seen too often as inextricably linked to the views of Bishop Akakios Doukas.
    However, both the speeches of King Friederick Wilhelm and Sultan Ioannis in their respective countries contributed in easing these concerns and now, with the Landsraad still focused on debating the approval of the new law about the restriction of the public use of religion, it is possible for the two courts to finally met and discuss the issues at hand.
    "The meeting will be held at Palace Van Sondenburg-Sorenberg, on Lake Horat." the spokesperson said. The choice reflects too well the issues at stake in the meeting: while at first rumors pointed at the Ducal Palace of Jike (one of the Royal Estates in East Tarajan), this change of mind clearly signalled the intention of King Friederick Wilhelm not to ignore the concerns and interests of the aristocracy, represented by the Landsraad. After all, Palace Van Sondenburg-Sorenberg belongs to one of the most prestigious cadet branches of House Van Sondenburg, whose head is Duke Philippe August Van Sondenburg-Sorenberg, Governor General of Meisjegronden and former Prime Minister; the Principality of Horat itself is the traditional seat of power and lordship of House Van Sondenburg, whose head, Prince Maximiliam, is Lord President of the Landsraad itself. The choise, thus, reveals itself to be full of political meaning.
    The meeting will see the direct participation of King Friederick Wilhelm and Queen Beatrice, followed by Duke Philippe who, apart from being the owner of the palace and the island, will represent the Landsraad, at the same time giving precious insights on the works of the Tarajani government. In itself, the fact that the King decided to recall in the mainland the governor general, gives a clear demonstration of the importance attached to the meeting, particularly after the recent events in Aloia and Eurasia.

    But the choice of an island on Lake Horat is also a way to avoid problems with the arrival of Sultan Ioannis. Public opinion in the Kingdom is increasingly angry at the interventions of Bishop Akakios. His last statements, particularly, trespassed what many, inside New Tarajan, consider the most sacred red line: the King. Crowds assembled in protest in front of the Morean embassy this morning, with many showing signs such as "Our King is Damned? Then better to be in hell than with you, Akakios" or "Our Kingdom is our King". A Diet representative even remarked, when reached by journalists outside Palace Van Telmar-Sigmaringen-Hurris, that "In the past, to use such words against the King of Tarajan would've meant capital punishment. The bishop is way too lucky, I guess.", while even the Landsraad is evaluating the possibility to send a formal protest to the Morean government.
    The Royal House spokesperson addressed the issue by saying that "while King Friederick Wilhelm is certainly glad to see how his country is united around him, he also invites everybody to keep calm. Words may be used against him, but he will continue to work for the sake of New Tarajan and its citizens, as ever. We understand that all too often insults are the only weapon left in a fool's arsenal, as our poet Khayyam once said. As such, we don't care about them, but see and pass."

    NEW TARAJAN MOURNS EURASIAN VICTIMS

    Meanwhile, violence in the world is rapidly escalating, with the latest terrorist attack in Eurasia costing the lives of 148 people, due to the most recent counting by Eurasian authorities. Although there isn't still clear evidence about who is responsible for the tragedy, the fear that it is once again a religiously-motivated attack is clearly at the forefront of many minds, both inside and outside the Empire.
    New Tarajan sent its condolences through Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen, who, in a press conference at the Palace of Government, stated that "The Kingdom as a whole is in sorrow for the terrible tragedy of Eurasia." King Friederick Wilhelm personally sent a letter to Emperor Augustus soon after the news reached him.
    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is checking in the meanwhile if there's the possibility that Tarajani citizens were among the victims. No official statement has been released yet, but the Tarajani embassy in Julium instructed all Tarajani citizens in Eurasia to report their current status to the nearest consulate or diplomatic representation of the Kingdom.
    The fear of further escalation led also the Royal Council to enforce stricter controls in many public places and buildings inside the Kingdom. The RHIELD has been alerted, and Tarajani agencies are currently working to ensure that none of this happen in New Tarajan.

    HIGHTENED SECURITY ACROSS THE NATION
    MOREA DOES NOT REPRESENT CHRISTIANITY

    The Prime Minister in a press conference outside parliament made it known that extra security arrangements have been made across the nation, especially the metropolitan cities.

    "With the recent attacks abroad it is in our best interest to take even more security measures, while we do not perceive any immediate threat to our nation from these terrorists you never know in these times of uncertainty what can happen and who can strike from where. We have made sure that we have our National Security Guard at the ready in the event that any hostage-like situation should arise. I would also like to request the people to work in cooperation with the police and report any suspicious behavior in the area."

    The Prime Minister was also asked about the recent escalation of tensions between New Tarajan and Morea

    "While I would not like to comment on the legislation pending before the Tarajani government because that is not my nation I can say this. Morea is parading around the international community pretending as though it is the world's representative for Christianity and Catholicism. Which is not the case. The Pope stands to represent catholicism. In fact, this is nothing more than a ploy to get international attention and credibility. Morea needs a lesson in Christianity- Do unto others and you wish others to do unto you- Morea must respect the sovereignty and integrity of the Tarajani legislature if it wants its sovereignty and integrity respected.

    The Prime Minister also took this opportunity to make clear the situation in wales.

    "The situation in wales is dire and we cannot ignore it anymore and hence the Welsh government has taken these drastic steps to ensure peace in Wales and we full support and back this initiative of the Welsh government.
    We cannot ignore Ireland in this situation. They are in partnership with us when it comes to the ownership of Wales.
    We, therefore look forward to a close cooperation with the Irish President. We however, would like to see him take more firm action against the IRA. It is no secret and he knows it too, that the IRA operates from Irish soil. Until the IRA is firmly rooted out of Ireland there can be no hope for peace in Wales."

    AETHERIST-MAIORIST BRAWLS IN CALABASAS
    QUEEN IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE CHRISTIANS




    A view of the Senate floor in Calabasas

    CALABASAS, SEVILLA == In the midst of the recent attacks in both Aloia and Eurasia, with which Arveyres has good relations with, the government has been severely caught in the middle of riots and sympathizers throughout the nation. Twenty-thousand Maiorists gathered in the Plaza da Democratia, the largest public square in central Calabasas, and began their march to the Igliucia (Christchurch) Parish in northern Calabasas. Christchurch is known for having the largest both Aloian and Christian populations throughout the capital city. In solidarity with the Aloians and Christians, Aetherist militia forces gathered around the projected Maiorist entrance to the parish in expected combat. Thirteen hours of fighting ensued between the Aetherist and Maiorist combattants, the two groups who largely follow the same religious doctrine but differ in ritualistic beliefs. Eighty-nine recorded Maiorists deaths, 112 Aetherists deaths, and an estimated 300 Christian deaths occurred during the night of fighting.

    Around 5:00 AM Standard Arveyran Time, during the time of the fighting, the Queen rushed together a speech to be broadcasted across every news and broadcast network throughout the nation, interrupting all programs. Sofia, who was rushed for time and struggling to put together her words, stumbled in Arveyran: "We, the Province, Realm, and Kingdom of Arveyres, are outraged and shocked by the actions of the Maiorist people, the people of the Nation from whence we are granted our sovereignty and rights. We cannot simply stand here in the middle of fighting between Aloia and Eurasia. I command the Senate to converge at this moment, to take charge on this brawl and bring to trial the perpetrators of this attack on the Christians and Aloians of Arveyres."

    Historically, Arveyres has been a nation accepting of Aloians and Christians, and is the main reason of the strong relations between the two nations, and Arveyres also hosts good relations with Eurasia due to a common religious belief and years of colonization and cultural assimilation. Arveyres is caught between the ideological warfare between the nations, bordering both nations.

    “When there is unity, there is victory”

    Church of the Righteous in Besançon, Marquette.
    Fuerteventura, Marquette—The Magna Omna of Fuerteventura, the highest ranking cleric in Marquetien Orthodoxy, voiced concern over the recent conflict between Christians and Deosians in Eurasia in a sermon at the Temple of Auri-El this Saturday:“The unity of the Deosian faith is of the utmost importance now more than ever in recent history. A Christian insurgency against the Divines is at hand and the mighty wisdom of Auri-El will prevail against the poor, misguided souls of the Christian masses.”

    In recent weeks, King Frédéric IV has been re-enforcing the importance of piety and humble adherence to the teachings of the Divines. Marquette prefers to remain neutral in the affairs of other nations, but with the sudden violent attacks against Deosians in Eurasia, the Marquetien public has been increasingly taking notice of foreign affairs. Frédéric, under pressure from the Unionist caucus in the senate, has pledged to take necessary measures to increase the security of centers of Christian populations in Marquette.

    The Marquetien Christian community, which makes up 1.8% of the population, consists of 1.3 million people mostly located in the Princedom of Besançon. In Marquetien Orthodox canon, the Christian god is considered a bastardized caricature of Auri-El, the chief of the Nine Divines. As such, they have never been a persecuted class in Marquetien society.

    The Marquetien government historically takes a strict neutral-until-provoked foreign policy stance, and Chancellor Charpentier has said publicly that no action would ever be made against the Christians unless terrorists began targeting Marquette. “We will continue to be a reliable trading partner to countries of all religions as long as the Nine Divines are respected. Our policy has not changed: our participation in the global economy will continue to expand but the state of internal affairs will remain private. We will attempt to maintain neutrality in global affairs but the threats to Deosian populations in Eurasia gives us reason to believe our intervention is necessary.”
