    Emperor Heinrik visiting Morea


    Today, his majesty Heinrik VIII ver Hohenzbrock has arrived to visit his majesty Sultan Ioannis IX Kallergis in the Blue Palace of Mystras, what is known about the visit is that Emperor Heinrik and Sultan Ioannis will join in prayer and later dicuss matters such as border and world security.

    Sultan Ioannis IX by reaching out his hand to the Emperor has shown that he has the good of not only Moreans but also Duresians in his mind even in the event of his closer cooperation with New Tarajan and Antanares with which Duresia has a colder relationship with since Duresian withdrawal from OMNI.

    ''Let this visit be a reminder that Duresia and Morea stand together in Esamir even if they may seem to be on different sides in some matters'' is one quote of what Emperor Heinrik himself said about the visit.

    Prime Minister Fires Back



    *camera turns on with reporter sitting at desk*
    "Good evening just moments ago Prime Minister Aldric Burgsman refuted recent claims from the UKZ Government over Ireland's actions in dealing with the IRA. This comes after the UKZ arrested 30 MLAs all from the Irish National Party we have footage of his statement to the Press."

    *camera turns to Prime Minister*

    "Good evening. These recent claims by the UKZ are false and scary. To cover up their illegal and immoral actions they lie to make it seem like we haven't been doing anything to stop the recent rise in violence in Wales under the control of the UKZ puppet First Minister. I want to clearly state that these claims by them are lies. We have been doing much to combat the rise of this violence. We have toughened up the borders to make sure the violence doesn't spread into Ireland and that sympathizers don't flood into Wales. In case the UKZ forgot it was us that did the investigation that found the group behind this was the IRA. We've also started patrols in Wales well before they did. Our investigation has expanded to include people that were in the IRA before. I'd like to remind the UKZ while they have never fought the IRA, we have. We know what they do and we know who they are. We did investigate every single MLA to make sure none were in the IRA and we found that none were. The arrest of 30 MLAs by the UKZ was nothing more than a political stunt to expand the power of the ZUP, expand Zack influence in Wales, and destroy the INP. I call on leaders of the world to join me in condemning the UKZ for this gross political stunt."

    News Reporter: "This was certainly an interesting speech to discuss it we have Leader of the Opposition Michael Daniel. Mr. Daniel how do you feel about the UKZ's reaction to recent events in Wales?"

    Opposition Leader: "It's deplorable. Pure and simple. The UKZ has shown themselves to be immature and power hungry and in times of violence that is the last thing we need. We signed this power sharing agreement to talk out our problems and to help stabilize Wales. I stand with the Prime Minister on this as does the rest of Sinn Fein."

    News Reporter: "Is there anything you or anyone else in your party plans to do about it?"

    Opposition Leader: "Yes, just recently Sinn Fein Parliamentary Party had a conference and we unanimously agreed on the need for leaving the Commonwealth. In coming days we will put forth a bill to do such a thing."

    News Reporter: "Did you hope it would end this way or did you want a more diplomatic approach?"

    Opposition Leader: "Of course I hoped for a diplomatic solution and still do hope for such but the UKZ escalated the situation when they arrested MLAs simply so they could expand their influence. I don't see a diplomatic solution happening."

    News Reporter: "Thank you, Mr. Daniel. We have some breaking news from Wales. Deputy First Minister Martin McGuiness, of the INP has died at the age of 66. Sources say he has been battling a rare illness for the last few months and the stress from the current situation helped speed up the illness."




    "Mr. McGuiness served as deputy First Minister since the power sharing agreement was signed and before that served as Governor of Wales from 2005-2015 when Wales was under the full control of Ireland and the British Free State. Throughout his life he was seen as a charismatic man who liked the peaceful solution in everything and was one of the leaders in getting the power sharing agreement signed. Prime Minister Burgsman released a statement in which he said "Throughout my time in politics I got to know McGuiness well and saw him as a brilliant statesman and a good friend. Ireland, Wales, and the world lost a great man today. The Irish Government and all of Ireland mourns with his family and sends our deepest condolences." "[/b][/b]

    SULTAN IOANNIS MEETS KING FRIEDERICK WILHELM
    Productive Discussion in the Palace Van Sondenburg-Sorenberg


    Astana, New Tarajan: Sultan Ioannis IX Kallergis, Prince Chrysanthos and Prince Dimosthenis Kallergis, and several prominent courtiers of the Sultanate of Morea finally arrived in New Tarajan this morning after weeks of preliminary discussions and preparations. His Majesty the Sultan and his sons, the latter of whom have recently spent months at the court of King Friederick Wilhelm II of New Tarajan, prevailed on His Majesty the King to host a meeting between select members of both monarchs’ courts and governments, in order to clarify certain questions surrounding a new Tarajani law intended to stifle religious proselytizing and the use of religion in political discourse. After weeks of controversy surrounding this law, Sultan Ioannis came to New Tarajan in the hopes of easing the tension between two nations whose religious differences have put a serious strain on a military alliance that the Sultan is very keen to maintain.

    The Tarajani delegation to the meeting included Prime Minister Ulrich De Witte-Beulen, Margrave of Beulen, and several prominent Landsraad ministers adhering to the Tarajani Sociaal-Democratische Partij (TSDP), whose leadership proposed and ardently supported the proselytizing ban in New Tarajan. However, Sultan Ioannis has made a point of framing this meeting as a friendly visit between colleagues and allies, and that the discussion itself was intended to solidify that alliance and friendship while the attendant politicians were left to work out the details. Whether or not that is true, the personal interview between these two royals and the Achaian princes who have so recently been made Tarajani dukes at the hand of King Friederick Wilhelm has added a fashionable mystique to a saga that has otherwise been fraught with depressing and often bloody news.

    At the meeting’s conclusion, Sultan Ioannis was quick to speak with Morean media outlets, including the Monitor, to reassure the Achaian people that the Christian population of New Tarajan had nothing to fear. “His Majesty the King was diligent in explaining how the finished law differs from its initial drafts, as well as the reports that have been presented to the international community and prompted such a violent reaction,” the Sultan reported. “As King Friederick Wilhelm has assured us in the past, and as he explained in detail to my colleagues and me today, the legislation he intends to sign is meant to preserve the religious freedom of every Tarajani subject. There are certainly elements to this law that I dislike, and I especially despise that the Christian religion was specifically targeted by those who initially proposed this legislation, but I am confident that His Majesty the King will be vigilant in preventing any abuse of power that may arise with the adoption of this law.”

    However, Sultan Ioannis also acknowledged that he had presented suggestions of his own to the Tarajani government ministers and King Friederick Wilhelm, centered mainly on the jurisdictions of Princes Chrysanthos and Dimosthenis within the Tarajani hierarchy. “His Majesty the King gifted the Duchies of Creil and Nagele to Morea’s princes at the conclusion of the Grand Ball in Vieneskel,” the Sultan said. “While it was in large part a gesture to reflect the friendship of our two nations, the gift included lands as well as titles. I came to New Tarajan today to determine if it is feasible, and acceptable according to existing Tarajani law, for my sons to make use of this gift for the benefit and protection of the Christian population of New Tarajan. There were some concerns, of course,” the Sultan added, “but there will be no hindrance to hearing cathedral bells in these places in the very near future. My sons assure me that further construction will not be long behind. In the meantime, there will be two additional voices in Tarajani government, at least within the Duchy of Coervorden, that will stand in defense of those who love Christ.” The Duchy of Coervorden, in which the Duchies of Creil and Nagele reside, is a property owned directly by the King of New Tarajan, which is why King Friederick Wilhelm was able to provide lands from this Duchy as gifts to foreign guests, and furthermore makes King Friederick Wilhelm the direct overlord of the minor dukes, including Princes Chrysanthos and Dimosthenis, who possess properties within Coervorden.

    “My sons will do their utmost to protect the Christian minority in New Tarajan if the need arises,” assured Sultan Ioannis. “However, I truly believe that His Majesty the King will make this concern superfluous in due course. Having spoken with him at length and in detail, I am more confident than ever that the Christian people of New Tarajan have a bright future ahead of them, and that this new law—regardless of the obvious anti-Christian rhetoric of its proposers and initial adherents—will have its own part to play in keeping Tarajani Christians safe from oppression by their neighbors within and without the Kingdom.” Referring specifically to clarifications from King Friederick Wilhelm in the past regarding the decriminalization of blasphemy and the restriction of religious influences in politics, Sultan Ioannis said, “Religious minorities must take care to watch their words when their more populous neighbors write and enforce legislation to prevent insults aimed at their own religion. Any such legislation in New Tarajan would only act to oppress the Christian minority of the Kingdom, and as such we should be grateful that it will not only be repealed by this new legislation, but that this legislation will prevent the Tarajani government from applying religious precepts to any of its future legislation, thereby preventing the government from drafting new legislation intended to restrict the freedom of speech on the basis of religion.”

    Sultan Ioannis’s positive outlook is not shared by other Christian groups, either in Morea or elsewhere. Christian populations both within New Tarajan and around the world have protested against the adoption of this law, with often violent and sometimes deadly results. Christian leaders have also voiced serious opposition, with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of New Tarajan recently announcing that it would challenge the law’s adoption in Tarajani court. In Morea, as well, Bishop Akakios IV Doukas has campaigned for many weeks to pressure Sultan Ioannis to take a firm stand against this law, and will certainly do his best to rally his congregation in Mystras against the Sultan’s conciliatory decision today. In New Tarajan, Sultan Ioannis presented an image of unconcern about the possible resistance he would meet when returning home. “My sons and I have come here not merely to complain to His Majesty the King, but to determine exactly what the Tarajani government proposes to do, and to determine if there are ways to alleviate any problems our brethren in New Tarajan may encounter as a result of this proposal. As a result, I am now better informed about the purpose of this legislation than ever before, and we now have a path by which the people of this Kingdom who know and love our Savior can reliably seek aid against the possibility of oppression in the future. I am content in the knowledge that I have done what I can for my brethren in this place, and that I have done so with the good will of my friend King Friederick Wilhelm and with the blessings of God. Bishop Akakios will find that I have no regrets regarding my time here.”

    Sultan Ioannis is scheduled to return to Morea in the next couple of days, while Prince Chrysanthos and Prince Dimosthenis remain in New Tarajan to tour their new holdings in the Duchy of Coervorden. According to His Anointed Majesty, both princes are eager to begin working on the establishment of new seats for the worship of God in New Tarajan.

    New-Zealand Ready To Take A Step Back Into International Affairs






    The Social Democracy is finally ready to return to international affairs as the battered and bruised superpower reaches the end of it's initial unstable recovery and progresses into a period of high economic activity and investment on the back of strong leadership, consumer confidence and worker morale. President Naveen Garagen went on to win his 3rd election campaign last month, securing both the Senate and House of Representatives for his increasingly centrist block. This election saw an expected yet remarkable victory for Garagen as his centrist NZFirst Party won a land slight 44% of the votes and 40 senate seats, allowing them to form a healthy government in coalition with the centre-left Labour Party, who attained a record low 12%, and the centre-right Imperial Party, who secured 8%. Together Garagen's coalition has 64% control of the House of Representatives and 58 of the 100 seats available in the Senate. The clear and decisive sweep of the centrist block has given Garagen's administration complete control of all 3 facets of governance; Senate, House of Representatives and Presidency. This strong election result has allowed Garagen to distance himself from the Left wing Green Party which had previously been a somewhat tense and argumentative coalition with NZFirst and Labour in Garagen's second term. This term, Garagen has been able to drop the Green Party in favour of the smaller Imperial Party as a coalition partner, aligning more with Garagen's view of a strong, centrist, imperial New-Zealand. 

    Politics dominating this election were mainly focused on military and economic policies, with Garagen and his associates advocating strongly for a increase in military spending, expansion of defence contractors and the arms industry as well as a more capitalist approach on economic stimulation, encouraging private investments and further deregulation of the market, pushing from a mixed market to a capitalist welfare state. On the other end of the spectrum, opposition, mainly in the form of the Green Party, Alliance Party and the Liberal Party, preferred a demilitarisation of the Social Democracy, disbanding of the Imperial Territories and a more socialist approach to economic management. Election day proved that the people of New-Zealand were behind Garagen's head strong approach to bold action and "brave" politics, a "we will not bow" approach to international affairs. 

    The rebuild of New-Zealand itself is coming along handsomely, with the construction efforts nearing their peak and the economy sufficiently boosted as a result, with real annual growth this year clocking in at 9.3%, making the Social Democracy the fastest growing developed nation on Esamir. Funding for the rebuild has been surprisingly efficient, with the deregulated private market basking in the newly opened market, investing rampantly in the thriving economy. Infrastructure however is continuing to be carried out on a largely public scale, with the government policy of all nationally significant infrastructure such as the State Highway Network being operated on a purely public scale being left untouched, and if anything reinforced, in Garagen's latest reforms. Infrastructure spending remains at the highest levels since the aftermath of the revolutionary war and has come at a great cost to the national treasury, with government debt rapidly rising in the early months, mostly in low interest loans from the Tarajani NIB (National Investment Bank). That said, the mines and oil fields in the recaptured Imperial Territories finally reached operational capacity mid year, with the government pushing for a fast tracking of the state owned mining efforts. As a result the bountiful influx of revenue into the treasury has significantly dampened the worrying debt crisis. The Treasury Department and Federal Oil, Gas and Mining Bureau have predicted that once the Imperial Mining efforts reach full capacity late next year, the government will be able to not only stop borrowing money, but be able to start paying down it's debt while still funding it's exorbitant spending regime. Furthermore the FOGMB have released preliminary reports indicating that the Imperial Territories have approximately 80 to 150 years worth of mining capacity depending on rate and efficiency, meaning that the Social Democracy is about to enter it's second ever mining boom, following the gold rush of the late 1800s. This however has been met with strong objection from the opposition parties, who criticise the government's policy of "Bleeding the territories dry to transfuse a crippled New-Zealand". These claims however have been met with little support from major analysts, with reports from the Esamir Investment Group and Tarajani NIB suggesting the Social Democracy is poised for a prolonged period of economic growth and stability. 

    Meanwhile, the NZDF has relished it's new found role in the media spotlight and Social Democracy as a whole, with our men and women in uniform being treated as heroes and demigods in nature. Funding is up a staggering 20%, bringing the defence budget up to the second largest Federal Budget, behind Education and ahead of Healthcare. Enlistment rates are also exceptionally high with the Federal Tertiary Programme pulling in a plethora of new recruits for basic training in return for government tertiary education funding support. Aside from the FTP, outright enlistment in the armed forces has for the first time surpassed defence force recruitment capacity since the revolutionary war. The government, while greatly increasing funding for the military, has affirmed it's stance of "Economy First", with the NZDF being instructed to have no more than 1% of the workforce serving in duty. The NZDF has instead been instructed to train the FTP recruits for militia and call into duty with minimal additional training if required (though unlikely), and the majority of the additional funding will go towards weapons research, and providing the NZDF with high grade equipment, vehicles and vessels. The NZDF aims to be the most technologically advanced defence force in Esamir by 2025, adopting a "Smart not bloody warfare" policy. As far as NZDF involvement in the Social Democracy goes, they have experienced almost rockstar status following the successful repulsion of Eurasian forces and defence of the Social Democracy, with High Commander Coral Shepard being ranked the 2nd most influential person in New-Zealand, after President Garagen, in the recent Korbes annual edition. Her, and the NZDF's, endorsement of NZFirst and President Garagen as preferred leadership has been partially accredited for his outstanding election performance. 

    Lastly on a diplomatic front, the Social Demcoracy has finally returned to the international stage, with President Garagen having planned official visits to the UKZ, Antanares, New Tarajan and Achaian Morea on his diplomatic tour following election victory. The agenda will likely be focused on economic and military policy, with Garagen openly expressing his interest in having far closer economic and military arrangements with the mentioned nations. Free trade and mutual defence pacts will definitely be on the agenda, with Garagen already having previously committed a fleet of NZ Navy battleships to the defence of Achaian Morea due to increasing Eurasian threat towards that nation. The visits are expected to start immediately, with the President set to depart early this week aboard Air Force Alpha, which was recently upgraded to a top spec NZADS 747 which was further retrofitted by the airforce with larger fuel tanks, defence capabilities and higher performance engines.

    UKZ-IRELAND DISSOLVE WELSH ASSEMBLY


    Prime Minister Tharoor invited the Irish PM to discuss the situation in Wales and they have finally come up with a solution to the problem. Both leaders agreed to dissolve the Welsh Assembly. Now Wales will be governed by an unelected executive board.

    The board will consist of both Zack and as well Irish ministers.
    Zack Side
    1. Prime Minister
    2. Minister for Foreign Affairs
    3. Commonwealth Minister
    4. Home Minister
    5. MPs from bordering constituencies (5)

    Irish Side
    1. Prime Minister
    2. Minister of Foreign Affairs
    3. Home Minister
    4. MPs from Bordering constituencies (5)

    Welsh Side
    1. Party President ZUP
    2. Pary President INP
    3. Welsh MP to Commonwealth Council

    This was the main deal struck between the two leaders, however, the UKZ made it clear from the very outset of the talks that the new Executive Board of Wales (EBW) will not strike down the WSTFU initiated by the Welsh Assembly and that the 30 MLAs arrested by Zack authorities will face trial for crimes against the crown, disruption of peace, aiding terrorist organizations in Zack court of law.
    Ireland will, however, send lawyers to defend them.

    While the EBW has been met with approval by the Conservatives and the ZPP parties, the Liberals have raised the issue of Welsh independence in parliament yet again. Something that they have been campaigning for from the very outset of this conflict.
    They claim that it is the only way to achieve lasting peace in Wales. This has been met with stiff opposition from the opposition and the ZNC government.

    Now only time will tell how the EBW will manage to ensure peace and security in Wales.

    The Irish PM will be staying in UKZ to celebrate Easter with the Prime minister and the UKZ will now get ready for the arrival of President Garagen who will do the same as well as discuss the possibility of a defence pact and free trade agreements as the two countries plan to move closer together and establish a strong alliance.

    TARAJANI GOVERNMENT SHOCKED BY MOREAN EVENTS
    Strong reactions after news of attack against Sultan Ioannis life


    The Palace of Government, Astana New District.

    Astana.
    Shock. That's the feeling most running around the corridors of the ministries and palaces of power of New Tarajan, after the country has been reached by the news of the attack carried against Sultan Ioannis IX Kallergis life by one of his bodyguards. Although no details have been as yet revealed about the attack, it already appears clear that it was religiously motivated. Frictions between the sultan and the religious establishment of the country, led by Bishop Akakios of Mystras, were already running high, particularly after the meeting between the Morean sovereign and King Friederick Wilhelm on Lake Horat, aimed at discussing the most debated religious law recently voted by the Landsraad and the Diet.
    Although Akakios denounced the meeting and personally attacked the sultan, however, obviously nobody expected such a grim turn of events.
    "We are greatly shocked by the news coming from Morea" Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen said, in an emergency press conference organized at the Palace of Government this afternoon "Our solidarity goes to Sultan Ioannis and to House Kallergis. We hope His Anointed Majesty will soon recover from his wounds."
    When asked about how New Tarajan will react on the political level, the Prime Minister was adamantine: "Every act of violence, no matter its justification, needs to be abhorred, and must be prosecuted accordingly to its gravity. The prosecution of the responsible of this crime is a responsibility of Achaian authorities, and we will not enter into the merit of this issue. However, we cannot ignore that this treacherous act is the straightforward consequence of the irresponsibility of some members of the Achaian religious establishment. We hope such an event will make them reconsider their mistakes."
    In few words, New Tarajan is waiting. While a new meeting of the Council, personally chaired by the King, will be held in the evening, it is clear that the Kingdom awaits for further developments. Particularly, it awaits to hear the words of Akakios himself. Many, inside Tarajani political circles, are deeply hostiles to the bishop, and are almost sure that he will praise the attack. If that will be the case, however, rumors from the ministries of foreign affairs and the military point toward the possibility of a reaction of "surprising harshness" against Akakios by the Kingdom. It is clear that the attack is perceived as being directed also against New Tarajan and, as such, levels of tolerance are very low at the moment; also, the Kingdom has all the intentions to respect the word of its alliance with Morea, which is interpreted (in a very Tarajani way) as aimed also at protecting House Kallergis itself.
    Concerns are also mounting about the possibility that the attack would eventually trigger a wave of unrest in Morea, possibly targeting Tarajani and Antanaresian citizens, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has already issued a warning for travellers, while the Tarajani military forces already on the ground have been alerted and keep their eyes open for every signs of trouble.

     New-Zealand and New Tarajan Sign Revolutionary Bilateral Relations Agreement


       
    President Garagen and King Friederick Van Vinkel announced the "New-Zealand and New Tarajan Closer Relations Agreement" which is set to the be the largest of it's kind. The agreement itself is omnipresent, with the agreement being composed of three seperate chapters; "Closer Military Relations", "Closer Economic Relations" and "Closer Social Relations". The agreement was finalised over the past week, with a vast plethora of Garagen's administration taking part in an offical state visit to New Tarajan for the purpose of this ground breaking alliance. The Economic and Social Relations chapters were drafted and reviewed by Garagen's governmental administration whereas the Military Chapter was drafted and finalised by the New Zealand Defence Force and her Tarajani counterpart before being reviewed and signed off on by High Commander Coral Shepard and ultimately President (Commander-In-Chief) Garagen himself. The agreement will come as a strong moral boost to the New-Zealand population, as the Social Democracy has had the looming shadow of the Eurasian superpower cast over shores since the invasion war and no guaranteed international support against the Eurasian Empire. With New Tarajan (and the UKZ - see next article) now at her back, the Social Democracy can finally breathe a sigh of relief, assured that she has friends by her side should the Eurasian Empire come back for round 2. 

    Closer Economic Relations
    The Closer Economic Relations Chapter focuses mainly on the standard free trade agreements, as well as an encompassing memorandum of understanding endorsed by key industrial and economic powers in both nations. The benefits over the new agreement are expected to be moderate, as the two economies already enjoy close informal relations with a free trade agreement effectively already in place. However, the new official agreement should provide an immediate boost to consumer and investor confidence, in turn encouraging positive economic growth. In the long term the Memorandum of Understanding should forge closer relations between the corporate powers of the two nations with shared R&D, mutual investments and relatively open information sharing allowing them to thrive on the open international market. 

    Closer Social Relations
    The Closer Social Relations Chapter is where the agreement really shines. In particular, this focusses on an open immigration scheme and close civilian relations. Under the new scheme all Tarajani citizens, current and future, will be entitled to a "special category visa" in the Social Democracy subject to criminal history check and certain exceptions. The Special Category Visa is effectively a permanent residency visa, except those in the SCV residency category will not be eligible for welfare support or government student loans and assistance. However after living 3 consecutive years without more than a 3 month break or 5 cumulative years in the Social Democracy they will be eligible to apply to have their SCV converted to a Permanent Residency Visa. This is a simple process and guaranteed acceptance for the applicant subject to a few formalities such as criminal history check. After gaining Permanent Residency, the applicant is part of the normal system and eligible for all the assistance of any New-Zealand citizen. After 5 years as a Permanent Resident the applicant can then apply for New-Zealand Citizenship, and will go through the standard citizenship process which is fairly simple and subject to a formal interview to assess integration, a citizenship test and an english language test. Once obtaining Citizenship the applicant would now have the right to vote in kiwi elections, run for office, serve in a management position of the NZDF or serve as a judge in the judicial system. The policy also works in an identical fashion for New-Zealand citizens wishing to migrate to New Tarajan.  

    The Closer Social Relations Chapter also includes a Closer Education and Research Relations Sub-Chapter, which basically states that all citizens of one nation are to be treated as domestic students in the other nation. Effectively stating that a SCV student is the absolute same as a Citizen or PR student with the exception of loans for education funding, in which case the onus falls on the student to obtain their own funding in the form of private student loans or a student loan from their citizenship country. The Closer Research Relations is a memorandum of understanding that states the two nations will share crucial research with one and other for the betterment of both nations economically and socially. 

    Closer Military Relations
    The Closer Military Relations chapter was drafted by the respective defence forces and is an extensive document that can basically be summed up as a Mutual Defence and Military Co-Operation Pact aka Alliance. Both defence forces have agreed to defend each other unconditionally if invaded or attacked by a foreign non allied force as well as support each other to the best of their abilities in conflict. Both forces have also stated they will be creating joint task forces, setting up respective departments dedicated to maintaining their mutual operations, carrying out joint exercises and war drills whilst also sharing key military R&D and equipment.

    UKZ UNDER SIEGE


    The UKZ is witnessing its darkest Friday in a very long time. Attacks on the Zack Parliament in Cair Paravel shook the nation to its core this afternoon but the UKZ is dealing with another shock as ten armed gunmen have landed in Pombay and have opened fire in a popular club, two internationally acclaimed 5 star hotels, the Victoria Terminus railway station (UKZ's busiest) and a hospital.

    In Houston gunmen opened fire along the Boardwalk in Houston City Centre killing 26 people many of whom are tourists who have come to UKZ to celebrate Easter.

    PARLIAMENT ATTACK


    five terrorists infiltrated the Parliament House in a car with Home Ministry and Parliament labels. While both the Commonwealth Council and House of Representatives had been adjourned 40 minutes prior to the incident, many members of parliament (MPs) and government officials such as Home Minister and Minister of State for Defence were believed to have still been in the building at the time of the attack. More than 100 people, including major politicians, were inside the parliament building at the time. The gunmen used a fake identity sticker on the car they drove and thus breached the security deployed around the parliamentary complex. The terrorists carried AK47 rifles, grenade launchers, pistols and grenades. Cair Paravel Police officials claimed that gunmen received instructions from Ireland and the operation was carried out under the guidance of The IRA.

    The gunmen drove their vehicle into the car of the speaker of the house of representatives (who was in the building at the time), got out, and began shooting. The Speaker's guards and security personnel shot back at the terrorists and then started closing the gates of the compound.


    Constable Kamlesh Kumari Yadav, of CRPF was the first to spot the terrorists and was shot by them as she raised the alarm. She died on the spot. One gunman's suicide vest exploded in the main porch when he was shot dead; the other four gunmen were also killed. Five policemen, a Parliament security guard, and a gardener were killed and 18 others were injured. The ministers and MPs escaped unhurt. The total number of deaths was 14 and at least 22 people were injured in the attack.

    Government sources suggest that the IRA are also responsible for the terror attacks in Pombay and Houston.

    POMBAY AND HOUSTON SIEGE

    Pombay: Ten Armed gunmen have attacked Pombay. Two have opened fire at the popular pub- Leopold Cafe, UKZ's busiest railway terminus- Victoria Terminus, Two Five Star Hotels- The Taj Mahal and Trident. One bomb was planted in a taxi which exploded in the suburbs. Militants escaping from the Victoria Terminus entered a hospital nearby where they opened fire on patients and doctors, police managed to kill two terrorists there.


    While reports are suggesting that one of the terrorists has been captured alive near Marine Drive thanks to an emergency checkpoint for vehicles.

    The siege continues with the Taj Mahal Hotel and Trident still under control by the terrorists. They terrorists are collecting hostages and killing them slowly. UKZ's Elite Black Cat Commandos are scheduled to arrive in Pombay to storm the hotels soon.

    So far over 75 people have died.

    Houston: The Board Walk in Houston City Centre is the most popular tourist destination in the city. At any time it is crowded with tourists, more so during this Easter and Passover season. Gunmen indiscriminately opened fire on crowds before being shot down by local authorities. Over 23 people have died and over 40 are injured.

    The Prime Minister has urged all Zacks to remain strong and vigilant and has asked Her Majesty the Queen to give the government emergency powers for one month.

    These attacks come days before the Commonwealth General Assembly Meet and the bilateral talks with the Kiwi President.

    Terrorist Attacks



    *News Alert flashes across screen before camera fades in on a man sitting at a news desk*

    Tom: "Good evening. Breaking news from Dublin today as the Parliament Building, Leinster House, has been bombed. During a debate over the Leader of the Opposition's proposal to trigger a referendum to remove Ireland from the Commonwealth two cars, parked close to Leinster House blew up. We are not sure who, if anyone has been killed or injured in this attack but we go to Sabrina on the scene on the attack. Sabrina, do we have any idea who this may be?"

    Sabrina: "Hey Tom, at this moment we do not know officially who did this as no one has taken responsibility yet but many expect it to be the Irish Republican Army in an attempt to get us and the world more involved in Wales."

    Tom: "Well if that was their intention it has worked. Prime Minister Burgsman is on his way back to Dublin and is expected to send more military forces to the border of Wales if not into Wales. The correlation with this attack and the attacks in UKZ can not be ignored. It seems this attack may tip the scales and escalate the conflict between Ireland and UKZ. We bring in National Security Contributor Edward Eagleson. Edward, thank you for joining us. How likely is this to increase tensions between UKZ and Ireland?"

    Edward: "Thank you for having me. I think if you were wanting tensions to increase and the situation to escalate this is what you would do. There is no doubt in my mind this will increase those tensions. The question is by how much."

    Tom: "Do you think a war is possible?"

    Edward: "I wouldn't rule it out. Bust most likely it won't go to that or hopefully won't go to that."

    Tom: [i]"Thank you Tom. We have an update from the attack on Leinster attack. 20 Parliamentary Aides, meeting in a room right next to the blast were killed immediately and another 6 injured severely. 9 MP's have also been killed and another 27 injured severely including the Foreign Secretary. Prime Minister Burgsman will address the nation soon about the attack. Many MP's are already blaming UKZ and unionist supporters for the attacks, an online poll suggests 73% would support an immediate withdrawal from the UKZ Commonwealth and 68% would support a war with the UKZ and now for the first time ever over half of Irish people believe Wales belongs strictly to Ireland. We will keep you updated as the night goes on."

    New Tarajan and New Zealand sign historical alliance: "new axis of international relations", analysts ---- President Garagen visits New Tarajan: follow the events live on NTKO Channel 2 ---- Terror in UKZ: government calls for easing tensions, PM ---- Terror in UKZ: MFA warns Tarajani citizens not to travel to the country, official ---- Eindhoven Stock Exchange Indexes: AFIX -0.5% ; FIX +4.0% ; NTIA +12.4% ---- Would you like to know more? More updates and insights on www.ntko.co.tj

    THE KING SPEAKS ON NT-NZ ALLIANCE

    President Garagen and his administration have arrived in New Tarajan, and it is now official: a new all-round alliance has been formed between the two countries, already linked by strong historical and cultural links due to their common past and heritage.
    In a series of bilateral meetings, indeed, President Garagen and King Friederick Wilhelm have signed the new agreements which will provide for the establishment of stronger economic, social, political, and military, ties between the Kingdom and the Social Democracy. A crucial development, in the aftermath of the bloody conflict which affected New Zealand, invaded by Eurasian and Duresian forces, which creates a new axis in Esamir international relations.
    Speaking to the Landsraad soon before Garagen, King Friederick Wilhelm said that "I am honoured to shake hands with a man who had been able to lead his people under the most difficult of circumstances, and who is now brilliantly addressing the no less difficult task of reconstruction." he said.
    "What happened in New Zealand has been one of the most tragic mistakes in the history of international relations, and I am sad that even our Kingdom had a part in it. For this, we still owe an apology to the people of New Zealand, with whom we share so much. Luckily, we saw the light of truth, and did our best to help them. It is my strongest hope, that this new alliance between New Tarajan and New Zealand will help create a more safe and stable environment all over the world. What happened to New Zealand, hopefully, will not happen anymore."
    President Garagen will be at the center of many social events in the Kingdom: banquets and balls have been organized by the Royal House and the Landsraad Houses, while a military parade will be held in Astana tomorrow.

    NEW TARAJAN CONCERNED ABOUT IRELAND
    Government warns about increasing tensions

    While New Tarajan is busy welcoming President Garagen and his administration in their first post-war visit to the Kingdom, news coming from Zackalantis have shocked the public. The terrorist attack against the UKZ Parliament, and the two other attacks in Pombay and Houston have increased tensions to an unprecedented scale in the north.
    As a consequence, the government has been forced to held a special meeting at the Palace of Government in Astana to address the issue and inform the public on the official stance of the Kingdom, which has been subsequently stated by Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen: "The Kingdom of New Tarajan is deeply shocked by the news coming from the UKZ" he said "and we stand united in condemning this atrocious act of barbarism, and in expressing our sincerest condolences to all those who have been affected."
    "We understand that these acts of terror are having the effect of increasing tensions between the Zack and the Irish government. In this sense, although we fully respect the UKZ sovereignty, it is our duty, as neighbours and allies, to express our concerns about these developments: New Tarajan cannot be unaffected by this latent conflict, and for this reason we would like to invite every side to stand down, and not to give any incentive to a further escalation. What we need, now, is to understand what happened, and to apprehend those responsibles."
    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a warning to all Tarajani citizens travelling to the UKZ not to undertake the journey, and for all those already in the country to immediately report to the nearest consulate or diretly to Zack authorities; the KTL has been instructed to be ready to perform emergency evacuations from the UKZ should the situation worsen. However, as the words of the Prime Minister show, there are still attempts to keep the situation at check.
    Should the conflict ultimately explode, New Tarajan would be almost inevitably attracted into it, due to the strong economic and security interests the Kingdom has in the UKZ. This is clearly the primary concern in Astana, and, as a result, Tarajani diplomacy could be ready to do everything in order to avoid such an escalation.


    Astana New District.

    THE KINGDOM CONGRATULATES WITH NEW MOREAN SULTANA

    Meanwhile, during his meeting with President Garagen, King Friederick Wilhelm also had the occasion to publicly congratulate with the new Morean sovereign, Sultana Aikaterini, for her recent coronation: "Although we still mourn the death of the Sultan Ioannis IX, it is our sincerest hope that the climate of friendship and collaboration he created between our two countries will continue to strife under the Sultana, to whom go our deepest and sincerest wishes to a long and prosperous reign."
    Rumors from politicians and the corridors of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs state that the smooth transition which happened with the coronation of Aikaterini has been warmly welcomed in the Kingdom, where fears were already growing about a possible general turmoil following Ioannis assassination. However, the eyes of the government are still firmly set upon the Sultanate, in the attempt of understanding where the new developments will lead.
    Particularly, the Kingdom is still concerned by the possible return under the flashlights of Bishop Akakios: a member of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has openly declared that, for New Tarajan, the sudden disappearance of the bishop is "a bliss", since Akakios is deemed by many as being the true motive behind the Sultan's death. Should Akakios reappear, New Tarajan will be very careful at hearing what he'll say.

    TARAJANI CITIZENS CONFIRMED AS VICTIMS IN UKZ
    Landsraad and Diet call for "swift response" to terrorist attack

    Astana.
    Zack authorities have just confirmed that 18 Tarajani citizens have been killed in the terrorist attacks which hit the UKZ. Together with them, 18 Karabakian citizens and 21 North Ajanians are among the victims.
    The news reached the Kingdom while the Council was in session, discussing the next move about the UKZ crisis. Immediately, and with the authorization of King Friederick Wilhelm, Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen convened the Diet and the Landsraad to inform them.
    As a result, both bodies have passed a resolution, calling the government to take a "swift response to this unprecedented act of terror against citizens of the Kingdom and its allies."
    The Prime Minister already announced that, through the Ministry of the Military, he had ordered to the KTL to begin evacuation of Tarajani citizens from the UKZ, as already planned by the Council; meanwhile, the armed forces have been put under alert, while the Tarajani ambassador in Cair Paravel has been instructed to inform the UKZ government that New Tarajan will gladly send its own investigators should the Zack ask for help. Also, the RHIELD and other Tarajani intelligence agencies are already at work trying to determine the root of these terrible events.
    Public opinion in the Kingdom is in turmoil, waiting to see where the investigations will lead, and, particularly, to whom.

    QUEEN'S RESPONSE TO TERRORIST ATTACK IN UKZ
    FOUR WESTERN ARVEYRAN TERRITORIES PLACED ON HIGHER SECURITY




    UKZ (blue), Ireland (red), Gyeonggi (1), Gyeongsang (2), North Jeolla (3), South Jeolla (4).

    Gwangju, South Jeolla Province, Arveyres == Amidst the recent attacks of terror allegedly funded and supported by the Irish Republican Army (IRA), the Queen of Arveyres interrupted her preparations for international affairs to make an emergency visit to the Sinine Palatinate, a loose ethnic federation of four Arveyran provinces (called Counties Palatine): Gyeonggi, Gyeongsang, and North and South Jeolla. The proximity of the Sinine Palatinate to both the UK Zackalantis and Ireland has prompted an emergency meeting of the Palatinate to discuss security issues within the region.

    The Queen spoke briefly with the Palatines and Financial Chamberlains of each province, before assembling the 9 member meeting to discuss how to strengthen the region from potential terrorist attacks. The nine member team, dubbed by the news as the "Sinine Nine" devised a plan to restrict international access to the four provinces during the calamity in the region and to assist Zack ex-pats, workers, immigrants, and tourists, especially those near the mainland and the landlocked Commonwealth territory of Ceylon, which borders Gyeonggi.

    One Arveyran was killed during the Siege of Pombay by an Irish loyalist during the final assault on the Trident Hotel by the UKZ forces. The Arveyran, identified as Matieu Hermès, was a well-respected Arveyran fashion designer who was on a business trip to finalize a sale of a collection to an unknown buyer in Pombay. The buyer of the twelve piece collection has offered to return the collection to Hermès' family in return for no compensation. The wealthy Hermès family is currently working in cooperation with the government to donate funds to alleviate relief stresses in Houston and Pombay to aid the UKZ government.

    The Queen was also noted to have ordered the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd provincial fleets of Alhambra, the most powerful in the nation, to be deployed to the waters of the Arveyran territories in question, to provide support and security. Increased border control is scheduled to commence soon, to decrease the risk of harm, should the calamity spill into Arveyran territories. Irish tourists are urged to leave the territories or risk expulsion or deportation.

    SIEGE ENDS, WAR BEGINS?


    After over 60 hours, the Zack National Security Guard Black Cat Commandos who specialise in hostage situations and the like declared The Taj Mahal Hotel Safe. The operation named 'Black Tornado' came to fruition as the last terrorist was killed in a gunbattle in a bar.

    The sole terrorist captured alive succumbed to injuries when he had a Cardiac Arrest in the same hospital which he attacked. Zack authorities, however, say that he was found to be a Welsh citizen, living just outside of Cardiff and that their handlers were giving their instructions via mobile phone.
    Zack authorities have said that they have tracked the phone calls to Welsh-Irish border.

    The rest of the UKZ limped back to normal life as the Victoria Terminus Railway station in Pombay opened for services once again on Saturday.

    PARLIAMENT

    Parliament resumed its budget session after observing 5 minutes of silence in both houses. Parliament unanimously passed a resolution condemning the attacks and the terrorists. As well as Ireland for aiding and abetting the IRA. It also declared that the terror attacks were, in fact, an act of war.
    The resolution also praised the sacrifice of the emergency forces that tackled the terrorists head on.

    The Prime Minister made this address
    "Our nation is under attack. Our enemies try and shake the foundations of our democracy but little do they know that the Zack spirit is a spirit of perseverance. The UKZ will not bow and give up its principles of democracy, civil rights and respect for international law when terrorists try and disrupt us.
    That being said, we cannot ignore the fact that a foreign nation has knowingly funded and aided the terror organisation that has declared war against us and by extension, therefore that nation has declared war against The Constitutional Monarchy of the United Kingdoms of Zackalantis.
    That nation is an enemy of every zack as well as an enemy of international peace and security.

    We would like to salute the great sacrifice and bravery our men and women in the forces have shown while tackling the threat of terrorism. And we would like to thank all the foreign governments who have come out in our support and have offered their prayers and condolences. We would also like to thank President Garagen for visiting Cair Paravel and continuing bilateral talks despite the security threat.

    The path ahead is difficult, but one we must take. At this point, we must inform all that all diplomatic relations with Ireland have been suspended, we are also withdrawing from the executive and governing board of Wales and as of this moment, we now consider Wales a Commonwealth Territory solely belonging to the UKZ. We expect the Irish to comply soon or face dire consequences.

    In conclusion, i would like to say that this is the time for us to set our party lines apart and speak with one voice not only for the UKZ but all of the humanity.

    Chrysler Group Secures Massive NZDF Deal




    The Chrysler Group has scored big today, potentially saving the struggling companies future. The once monumental, iconic company has come under intense strife recently as the invasion and subsequent fallout with the Eurasian Empire left the companies future in tatters. During the invasion the flagship Chrysler Plant in Steelport, Detroit District was the site of one of the most intense and grueling battles of the invasion, with coalition forces attempting to capture the facility in order to deal a serious economic and demoralizing blow to the Social Democracy, while also taking advantage of the equipment at the plant to repair and operate their eastern armored fleet. The intense fighting left the plant seriously damaged and in need of numerous costly repairs. Furthermore, the Chrysler Group had it's future plans backing on strong exports to the Eurasian Empire, and in the cold war that has followed the conflict, the Group has been effectively cut completely from that market. While the company still enjoys strong sales domestically, it's exports to New Tarajan, Antanares, UKZ and other major international markets have faced intense competition from rival Eden Initiative's Tesla Motors. As a result of the monumental costs required to restart their manufacturing operations and sudden unforeseen loss of key sales, the Chrysler Group has been unable to invest enough in R&D, and as a result has let Tesla Motors produce automobiles which far surpass the tech, appeal and cost effectiveness of their Chrysler counterparts, leaving the Group on a steady downward spiral with the Eden Initiative picking up the slack. 

    Salvation, however, came today as the Chrysler Group won a monumental supply contract with the NZDF, who are looking for a domestic manufacturer to develop, manufacture and maintain/upgrade their rapidly growing fleet. While the NZDF has in the past bought heavily from the Eurasian Empire, new circumstances mean the Force is keen on having their tech and equipment sourced domestically. The Chrysler Group, citing it's rich history, output capacity and status as a State Owned Enterprise place it as the "perfect" contender for the contract in the eyes of the NZDF. The Group has officially won the 20 year contract to supply the new locally developed main battle tanks (pictured above), APC's and a plethora of other land vehicles, as well as modified versions of their cars for official fleet use, and armored versions of their RAM trucks and Jeeps for deployed use. Reports also suggest the group's subsidiary "Chrysler Heavy Industries" is a forerunner for multiple of the navy's shipbuilding contracts. While the specifics of the deals remain classified for now, spokespersons from both parties have described the deals as being "large scale and extremely lucrative". The new found masses of income from the NZDF combined with Garagen's aggressive economic promotion on his overseas tour is expected to give the Chrysler Group all it needs to boost it's R&D budget, potentially expand it's operations and reaffirm it's status as the worlds largest and dominant automotive manufacturer. 

    Garagen Lands In UKZ



    President Garagen has officially landed in the UKZ, confirming our predictions that the diplomatic tour would go ahead regardless of the recent unrest in the United Kingdoms as a show of solidarity and confidence. The Presidential Jet was spotted flying over Cair Paravell, presumably to land at the central air base, flanked by 2 NZ Air Force fighter jets (standard protocol for any flights involving the President). It is understood that this visit will go much along the same lines as the visit to New Tarajan, with the President partaking in multiple photo opportunities and diplomatic events with the UKZ leadership, while behind the scenes working hard to finalize a solid alliance between the two nations. While Garagen will no doubt have a very economic focus to the visit, the presence of High Commander Shepard on this visit indicates that a large scale military alliance, similar to that recently signed with New Tarajan, is to be expected from this visit.

    COMMONWEALTH HEADS OF GOVERNMENT MEET (CHOGM 2017)
    COMMONWEALTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY


    The Commonwealth General Assembly is an annual meet of all heads of government from all the member states. The event is held in Caspian Castle in the city of Buckingham (formerly known as Browns) which is the Royal Capital of the UKZ.

    The CHOGM is an excellent time for members to talk diplomacy, business and culture in order to bring together all commonwealth members.

    It is important to note that while most members are still a part of the UKZ, the central government of the UKZ has no say in the proceedings of the Commonwealth. A very important proof of this was when the central government did not wish for Pombay to host the 19th Commonwealth Games after separation from Belfast. However, The Commonwealth Association went ahead with it anyway.

    The following are the topics on the agenda.
    1. Appointment of the Commonwealth Secretary General
    2. Welcome to Ceylon
    3. Establishment of the ‘Independent Commonwealth Athletes' (ICA) contingent for the games: Allows athletes from non-commonwealth nations to participate in the games.
    4. Cooperative Embassy Agreement: Commonwealth Citizens are obliged to get help from any other commonwealth nation's embassy
    5. One Visa for The Commonwealth
    6. The Question of Wales

    The welsh issue is going to be the most hotly debated agenda on the list with Pombay submitting a resolution that suspends the membership of Ireland and Wales. Wales will be represented by two delegations- Wales (UKZ) and Wales (Ireland). Both will be given a vote.
    This again is a sign that shows the Commonwealth is independent of the Zack government. As the PMO has said that he wishes to only see Wales (UKZ) have a vote in the GA and the Wales (Ireland) be there as an observer.

    This General Assembly might change the Commonwealth Association forever.

    NEW FRONTIER OF RELATIONS FOR KIWIS AND ZACKS

    President Garagen's visit to the UKZ has proved to be historic with the two nations getting involved in groundbreaking diplomatic deals.

    Here are some of the highlights.
    MILITARY BASES

    The UKZ will acquire an independent Naval Base at the Northern Mouth of the harbour in Blukon South and New Zealand will acquire a base in Edinburgh, Scotland's outskirts near the McPherson Harbour.
    New-Zealand plans on establishing a forward operations base equipped with drone squadrons, long range reconnaissance and relay radars, and refuelling and resupply facilities for the NZDF Naval Fleet should they be in the area as does the UKZ.

    This move shows that the two nations are ready for a bigger role in each other's security interests and in the military operations of the world.

    VISA ON ARRIVAL

    "The most important thing to do while building relations with another country has to be the process of initiating people to people exchange. And with that in mind, we have come to an agreement to offer visa on arrival for all toruists and business visas after criminal checks" said the Minister for Foriegn Affairs.

    JOINT MILITARY EXERCISES

    New-Zealand and UKZ will not only mainatain military bases in each others nations but also carry out joint military exercises on the independence day of Drakenburg. A sign that these two nations want to work together more closely and also making sure that the common history of these two nations remain strong and remembered by all.

    ZACK KIWI JOINT MILITARY TASK FORCE (ZKJMTF)

    By far the biggest achievement of these talks is the establishment of the ZKJMTF, which will share military intelligence with each other, participate in military operations that we both agree upon etc.
    Members, of course, include New-Zeland and UKZ. However, the Zack Minister of defence has said that he doesn't rule out inclusion of other states in the future if mutually agreed upon by all parties.

    Many say that this is the UKZ's way of replacing the OMNI. The ZKJMTF is everything the UKZ wants the OMNI to be.

    It will enable the UKZ and NZ to carry out military operations on foreign soil together, it will serve as a forum for both nations to exchange military know how and intelligence.

    The Motto 'In Arduis Fidelis' means faithful in adversity and that is the essence of the Zack-Kiwi partnership.

    Crisis in Morea: Bishop Akakios speaks against Sultana Aikaterini in Raitia ---- Crisis in Morea: NT warns Akakios, "attacks will be dealt with", PM ---- "UKZ-NZ agreements a positive development for global strategic stability", PM ---- Lutheran Church to present motion against recent bill in court next week, Bishop Bugenhagen ---- Eindhoven Stock Exchange Indexes: AFIX +0.5% ; FIX +0.6% ; NTIA +3.5% ---- Would you like to know more? More updates and insights on www.ntko.co.tj

    THE RETURN OF AKAKIOS
    Tarajani government warns the Bishop: "Attacks against legitimate Sultana will be dealt with."


    Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen during the conference.

    Astana.
    In time as a sandstorm in Bakran (as an old Ajanic saying states), Bishop Akakios has returned to the pulpit, speaking against Sultana Aikaterini, successor of Sultan Ioannis IX, and her supporters (mainly Montferrati). And, as a result, now arrives the replica from the Palace of Government. New Tarajan is watching closely upon Morea, to see the political developments after the death of Sultan Ioannis, in a country deemed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (and not only by it) a "strategic partner" (the label came from a recent note released by the Ministry, and has been repeated many times by the Prime Minister himself).
    Now that Akakios has finally spoken, New Tarajan can reply.
    "The words of the bishop didn't surprise us" Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen said during a press conference: "But this doesn't mean that we're eager to hear them, of course. Although we still believe this to be a matter of Morean domestic politics and security, and as such under the full and exclusive right of Morean authorities, we, as friends and allies of the Morean people and government, cannot avoid at least to comment, and to state our position in the issue." the Prime Minister said.
    "We already had to mourn the death of a beloved sovereign, and sincere friend of this Kingdom. We will not tolerate further threats to the stability of the Morean throne and to House Kallergis. Sultana Aikaterini is the sole legitimate ruler and sovereign of Morea, and this is all. To threaten her, is to threaten us, as her allies. Any attack, being it verbal or physical, against the Sultana, will be dealt with."
    When asked by a journalist if these words could count as a warning to the bishop, the Prime Minister was adamantine: "Yes, they are. A very clear warning. I sincerely hope the bishop will understand that it is not wise to disturb us anymore, nor to ignite more conflicts inside a country which needs peace, not war. If he does otherwise, then he must pay the consequences of his actions."
    It is very unusual, for the Tarajani government, to use such strong words, and to directly and clearly threatening retaliation. However, it is demonstration that the patience has been lost, both in the Palace of Government and the Royal Palace. Bishop Akakios has always been seen as an adversary, but now he's clearly the enemy. For many, including members of the Council, the Sultan's blood is on his hands; and the decision to proclaim the Tarajani murderer Piet Gilsheim as martyr of faith has been seen as outrageous and offensive (not to mention the insults against His Majesty the King). Thus, the bishop has already crossed the thin, red line.


    NEW TARAJAN WELCOMES ZACK-KIWI AGREEMENTS
    OMNI to reform soon?

    On another side of the agenda, the Prime Minister welcomed the new agreements between New Zealand and the UKZ.
    "These agreements have the potential to strengthen strategic stability in this region and beyond" he said "Something which is deeply needed right now." a clear reference to the recent terrorist attacks which shook the UKZ and Wales.
    New Tarajan has already signed similar agreements with President Garagen's government, and a stronger partnership between New Zealand and an old ally such as Zackalantis cannot be seen but well in Astana.
    "We look forward for the positive developments of this alliance." the Prime Minister has commented.
    But, most importantly, he also made a reference to OMNI: "We see were the wishes of the UKZ stay. And we are ready to discuss them, together with our common interests."
    This is the first time the Prime Minister talks about OMNI Enforcer, the old alliance linking New Tarajan, Antanares, and Zackalantis. The alliance, although old, is still in function, but its structure is deemed obsolete by many analysts, and above all in the UKZ, which already threatened to leave it recently during a voting session in the Parliament (the so-called Z-Exit Bill). But now, new horizons for OMNI are appearing. Rumors from the ministries of foreign affairs and the military seem to point toward a possible offer of inclusion into OMNI of New Zealand, and the merging of OMNI's existing structure with those of the Joint Military Task Force.
    However, no confirmation has been stated yet.

    COMMONWEALTH GIVES WALES THE BOOT
    IRELAND LEAVES THE ASSOCIATION, COMMONWEALTH GAMES OPEN TO ALL?

    Commonwealth Flag flies for the last time in Dublin

    In another sign of increasing tensions between the UKZ and Ireland, The Irish parliament overwhelmingly voted to leave the Commonwealth Association after the draft resolution from Pombay, which called for the suspension of its membership along with that of Wales (UKZ) and Wales (Ireland).

    The Commonwealth GA has never seen a more fiery debate, With Pombay arguing that the Commonwealth must approve their resolution and send a message to the world that it would not tolerate terrorism in any form. Ukhta and Norlisk, also victims of the IRA terror co-sponsored Pombay's resolution.

    Studeti Karabak, North Ajania, Chita and New Viscos came out in opposition to the resolution. Chita claiming that instead of suspending the membership it is more important the Commonwealth act as a bridge to mend relations, Chita even argued that by doing this we tell the world that the Commonwealth is a political organisation and not a cultural and social one.

    22 votes were needed for this resolution to pass. And they just managed to do that with Drakenburg (New-Zealand) voting in favour.
    The final vote tally was as follows.
    AYE-22
    NAY-4
    ABSTAIN- 8

    This resolution is effective immediately and will see Wales (UKZ) and Wales (Ireland) expelled from this Family of Nations till they once again prove to the general assembly that they have taken effective steps against home-grown terrorism.

    SCOTLAND'S RESOLUTION

    The Scottish resolution which called for the creation of the Independent Commonwealth Athletes (ICA) contingent for the Commonwealth Games. This will allow athletes from non-Commonwealth nations to participate in the Commonwealth Games (CWG).

    The terms of the resolution were as follows:

    1. Athletes from the non-commonwealth member states must be subject to the same qualification requirements.
    2. The ICA board which will consist of Commonwealth citizens will choose the best athletes from those that took part in the qualifiers to represent them.
    3. There shall be no cap on the number of athletes in the contingent.
    4. Athletes from Former Commonwealth Members who have been banned or suspended will also be welcome to participate in the ICA
    5. Upon winning Gold the flag of the Commonwealth will be hoisted and the Commonwealth Hymn 'God Save the Queen/King' will be played.

    The resolution passed easily with the following tally,
    AYE-30
    NAY-0
    ABSTAIN-4

    The passage of this resolution means that we might now see athletes of nations like New Tarajan, Eurasia, Antanares, Morea etc also participate in the games. The 21st CWG in SDK will bear witness to this for the first time.

    Scotland has hailed this as a chance to increase the sporting excellence at the games, while the UKZ sports and Youth affairs ministry said that it will also be beneficial for cultural exchange and as a potent tool to spread Zack Soft power.

    ANTI-IRELAND/IRA PROTESTS IN UKZ

    The nation is an uproar against the IRA and the Irish Government. Anti-Ireland and Anti-IRA protests broke out in Pombay, Houston, Cair Paravel, Crus, and Maped as the outrage against Ireland are only building in the nation.

    The protests saw the burning of effigies of the Irish Prime Minister and the Irish flag.

    When asked by a reporter, one of the protesters said that 'Ireland is an enemy of not only the UKZ but all the world', another protester said 'We feel like Ireland stabbed us in the back. These attacks happened right after the Prime Minister welcomed the The Irish leaership to partake in our Easter celebrations.'

    A growing anti-Ireland sentiment is predominant throughout the nation, evident by the celebrations after Ireland left the Commonwealth.

    The Ministry of Home Affairs sent out a statement after these protests began.
    "The protests are only a symbol of the mood of the nation. Zacks everywhere and extremley disturbed, angry and shocked at the way the IRA, supported by the Irish government held our nation hostage for over 60 hours.
    We cannot, and will not stop these protests in the interest of our democracy as long as the protesters don't take to rioting and destruction of public property.

    The world can be assured that we are going to take good care of all the Irish permanent residents within our borders. Our fight, our anger is not directed at them but largey against their incapable and criminally compalcent government.


    These strong words from the Zack government must be a warning to the international community that tensions are only going to rise in the region even more so after the UKZ has been steadily increasing military presence around the Irish border and in Wales.

    BISHOP AKAKIOS DENIES WRONGDOING
    Claims New Tarajan Spreading “Base Lies” About Sultan Ioannis’s Murder

    Raitia, Raitia: Bishop Akakios IV Doukas of Mystras has spoken out against the Tarajani condemnation of his person earlier today. Though reluctant to speak on the matter at all, claiming that “the heathens have no say in Achaian affairs, as they acknowledged themselves,” when pressed by the media, the bishop did produce a statement to express his dissatisfaction with matters in Morea and abroad. “The accusations that have been laid on me and on the Achaian Church are simply outrageous,” he said. “New Tarajan is spreading base lies about the circumstances of His Anointed Majesty’s passing, and every person who believes those lies is one more soul lost to the Achaian Church forever; such is the heathens’ hatred of our Lord that they would call us all murderers. I said at the time, and I say again now, that a call to resist is not a call to spill the blood of an anointed monarch of the realm. His Majesty’s assassination can be blamed on no one except the man who wielded the gun, and that man is rightfully condemned in the eyes of men and of God.”

    The bishop added, “What good could have come from murdering the Sultan? What good has come of it? We knew well in advance that his heir was no worthy successor—I said as much in many a sermon—and we have seen the proof of it over the past weeks.”

    Bishop Akakios disappeared from Mystras soon after Sultan Ioannis’s assassination, and has only recently returned to public view in the company of Bishop Gavriil Ekklisias of Raitia, whose diocese and its neighboring territories in the Achaian-led Nordan Mission are now under official scrutiny after Sultana Aikaterini II Baumbach-Kallergis accepted the petition of Montferrati soldiers, specifically Makarians, to investigate claims of abuse by Achaian religious leaders in the area. Bishop Akakios has condemned the accusations and their source, and has accused Sultana Aikaterini of apostasy in her treatment of the Achaian Church and her preference for Makarian company. “She has abandoned our capital for the sake of a Makarian town,” the bishop said in today’s sermon to the Raitian congregation. “She has created bishops on a whim, without the input or acceptance of the Achaian Church or any other. She is herself no longer Achaian enough to bear the name.”

    To the media afterward, the bishop added, “It is clear that New Tarajan is thrilled to find a heretic on the Morean throne. Perhaps they admire her sympathy to the heathens of Norda; perhaps they simply desire to eradicate the Achaian Church, and know that the persecution we are currently undergoing will weaken our situation if it is allowed to continue for much longer. Either way, their opinion is irrelevant. Nonetheless,” Bishop Akakios added, “it is unfortunate that the Tarajanis cannot see the damage that the Duchess of Montferrat is doing to a nation they claim to protect, nor can they see how providing Morea with a true and Christian monarch of the Kallergis line would be in their best interest.” The bishop’s stated qualifications can only refer to Prince Chrysanthos or Prince Dimosthenis, the former of whom was heir to the throne prior to Sultana Aikaterini’s marriage to Duke Nico of Montferrat, and both of whom have made a second home in New Tarajan, where they have been installed by King Friederick Wilhelm II as his direct vassals.

    When asked if his statements should be taken as an affirmation that Sultana Aikaterini should be removed from power, Bishop Akakios said, “With the Lord’s aid, we can certainly persuade her to find better use of her time elsewhere. That, I believe, is every Achaian’s duty.”

    Sultana Aikaterini, currently residing in Nafplio, could not be reached for comment. However, the Blue Palace in Mystras presented a statement explaining that Bishop Akakios’s comments made outside of his sermons are his opinions alone, and not those of the Achaian Church or the Achaian people.

    Monumental Budget Blowout - Cabinet Convenes Emergency Meeting


    BREAKING NEWS
    Capital Hill has convened an emergency meeting as the 2016/17 fiscal year comes to an official end and the report portrays a damning overview of the Garagen administration's fiscal policies. While previous estimates had the nation running a shocking $2.7 Trillion defecit, the official report for this financial year has the grand total coming in at a whopping $4.08 Trillion, the largest deficit ever recorded in NZ history and wiping off the combined wealth of the past decade of surpluses in 1 single fiscal year. The official values come in at over a trillion more than Treasury estimates, and will provide a swift blow to the morale and public support of Garagen's previously rock solid career. Critics accross the board have come out in full force, brandishing the leader as "overeager" and a "showboater", blowing the federal budget out in monumental proportions in an effort to fund his unsustainable rebuild promises. To make matters worse, the economy stalled in the final quarter, with the official growth for the year actually being a more modest 1.8%, short of the estimated 2.3% miracle. The true kicker comes in the form of the financial sector, which recorded a slump in the stock market in the final month, triggering the first drop in the NZDs value since the invasion. 

    Reports indicate an urgent cabinet meeting was called, with Garagen being video conferenced in, to deal with the aftermath of this catastrophic revelation. Early reports suggest that Garagen and his team have been given an ultimatum from the party caucus and parliament as a whole. Cut the deficit, sort out the budget and get the finances in sustainable order or face a vote of no confidence and subsequent impeachment. This could prove to be the beginning of the end for Garagen's bright career and strong tenureship as President as the sudden revelation could result in a shockwave through the delicate rebuilding market, and result in the economy going back into recession. Something that would put the Social Democracy in serious trouble and almost certainly result in the swift end of Garagen's career. Garagen took to Twitter to say "Shocking news from the Treasury department today, but we're working hard as a team and can assure that the problem will be dealt with quickly and effectively. No rebuild has ever been easy, but it is the struggle that makes us great."

    21 INP MLAs FOUND GUILTY OF HIGH TREASON



    The Supreme Court of UKZ in what turned out to be a swift decision (unusual for the judicial system in UKZ) has pronounced 21 of the 30 INP MLAs arrested guilty of High Treason or Crimes Against the Crown, Criminal Conspiracy, Crimes Against Humanity, Aiding and Abetting a terrorist organisation. They have all been awarded the death penalty which still is carried out by hanging.

    The other 9 MLAs were pronounced not guilty and will be on their way back to Wales.

    The UKZ had to provide lawyers for the 30 MLAs mid-trial as the Irish lawyers were disqualified from practising in the UKZ after Ireland voted to leave the Commonwealth Association. In the UKZ only foreign nationals from Commonwealth Member Territories are allowed to practice Law.


    Her Majesty's Attorney General hailed this decision as a victory for all nations that fight against terrorism and advocate for international peace and security. He also said that it is a step closer to justice for the victims of the terror attacks which shook the nation on the 21st of April.

    "These trials also stand a testament to our democracy, we carried out a free and fair trial for those suspected of conspiring war against our nation. Our judges made their decision without any bias and that is a sign that the UKZ is a healthy and fully functional democracy."

    The 21 MLAs on death row have decided to write to Her Majesty The Queen for a 'plea of mercy'. The Plea of Mercy is a legal recourse any accused can avail of after being offered capital punishment in the Supreme Court. It is now up to Her Majesty The Queen to decide if she wishes to grant them mercy, effectively reducing their sentence to a lifetime imprisonment.
    It is, however, to be noted that the mercy plea has not been granted to any accused in over 50 years and the last execution was carried out 20 years ago of the Head of the Caucasian Insurgency Group.

    While the death penalty still hangs (no pun intended) in the balance the people are out celebrating what they call the first step to IRA destruction.

    HER MAJESTY ARRIVES IN NEW TARAJAN
    Meeting with the King, Government, and the Garagens




    The Queen and her father, the King Dowager Luceo

    In her first state visit to New Tarajan since before the outbreak of war throughout New Zealand and the Blukon, Queen Sofia X is taking crucial steps to introduce good relations back into the world between the Western World and the Central World. Arveyres, a nation often viewed as the crossroads of the West and the Center, has historically played a crucial role in repairing relations between the powerful liberal countries like New Tarajan, New Zealand, and Aloia with the central nations of Eurasia, Duresia, and Marquette, most notably during the aftermath of the Great War, taking the lead in the accords to establish the Khanate out of Eurasian conquered ruins.

    The trip itself is a landmark in Arveyran history already, being the first meeting of estranged members of the royal family since their separation. In a meeting with New Zealand scheduled later in the week, the Queen is expected to meet with the President and First Lady of New Zealand, the latter being her youngest sister. Elaena Garagen, the First Lady of New Zealand, in order to marry her husband, a foreign-residing national was requested to relinquish her citizenship in the Kingdom of Arveyres, and promptly did so; the Ministry of Culture of the Empire of Eurasia viewed this as a unilateral revocation of Arveyran citizenship, mistakenly. This was followed by a trial in which E. Garagen was tried and sentenced to death in absentia; being the main reason for these talks taking place in New Tarajan, for the safety and security of all parties involved. The conference is mainly to repair broken relations and encourage the New Zealand government to allow Arveyran investment in the repair of infrastructure in New Zealand.

    The Queen is also expected to have a high profile meeting with King Friederick Wilhelm II of New Tarajan to discuss future economic, political, social, and cultural cooperation between the two nations, who have historically held very close ties. With Arveyres hosting a large Tarajani ex-pat and worker population, especially in the Provinces of Jeolla, Gyeongsang, and Gyeonggi. To thank the King for his benevolence of the high security meeting between the Arveyrans and New Zealanders, the Queen is expected to bestow upon the King the inaugural Grand Cross of the Order of Marina, a civilian order in honor of Queen Nina (Marina) II of Arveyres, assassinated in 2005.

    A Worse For Wear Garagen --- First Lady Arrives In New Tarajan

    (Left) President Garagen pictured walking outside the NZ Embassy in UKZ shortly after cabinet meeting over budget crisis - (Right) First Lady Elaena Garagen pictured at a fundraiser event last friday


    President Garagen, First Lady Elaena Garagen and the many other members of the Social Democracy's core cabinet have arrived in New Tarajan ahead of the talks with Arveyres. Garagen and his existing diplomatic entourage were spotted arriving at New Tarajan's Central Airforce Base aboard NZ One accompanied by his F-16 escort at shortly after 4pm today. First Lady Elaena, a few additional diplomatic associates and a sizeable team from the Chrysler Group's military division alongside a couple design engineers arrived aboard the "backup" official 757 shortly after, though given the much less fancy flight code NZ212D rather than the NZ001D that would be used if the President were aboard. While NZ is the official code of state-owned national flag carrior Air New-Zealand, the code is also used by the NZ Air Force for their non military charters. The D at the end of the code indicates the plane is a "Diplomatic" charter and would as such be accompanied by a NZDF presence of some sort. Following the second planes arrival from mainland New-Zealand, the entire group with the exception of the Chrysler Group representatives travelled through the Tarajani capital to the New-Zealand Embassy where they would be residing during the visit. Not much is yet known about the presence of the Chrysler Group reps but it is understood they are there on non official purposes, supposedly there to liase with Tarajani counterparts. It is suggested that the engineers are their to liase with partner Itardesign over their latest Model 1 design and future projects, while the military division are here to finalise details with the Tarajani defence department over their recent large scale vehicle supply contracts. 

    On the homefront the Garagen administration has managed to avoid catastrophe, managing to reign in their defecit to a certain degree and narrowly avoid an economic recession through sheer luck. Following the final quarter stagnation and monumental federal budget deficit at the end of last financial year, it looked like the end was near for the President who faced the threat of impeding impeachment by the parliament, a shock to the President who has experienced a surprisingly long period of exceptionally high ratings and easy sailing. Inside sources have reported a significant change in the demeanor and attitude of Garagen following the near impeachment, with the president appearing highly stressed and very worn out in the days immediately following the urgent cabinet meeting where Garagen was delivered the parliament's demands and ultimatums. The president should be able to finally breathe a sigh of relief now as the interim Treasury reports indicate the economy is once more in a healthy state and the deficit has shrunk significantly, meaning the administration is on path to remain within budget this year if things go according to plan. This diplomatic visit is the final in Garagen's long tour, and there's no doubt the President is eager to smash out another large scale bilateral agreement with Arveyres and return back to the Social Democracy so he can resume his role as the head of state and get to work on the domestic policies and day to day operation of the superpower.

    AN HUB FOR DIPLOMACY
    New Tarajan hosts historical talks between NZ and Arveyres

    Astana.
    That Tarajani diplomacy is on the move, is no surprise: since the end of the war in New-Zealand and the appointment of Margrave Ulrich De Witte-Beulen as the Kingdom new Prime Minister, Astana has greatly intensified its presence and role in the international arena, through a careful use of diplomacy at all levels and in all fields. A way to repair the damages inflicted by the war itself, and to remedy the failures of past governments in that same arena, perhaps. The fact is, that New Tarajan has become a new, strong, hub for world diplomacy.
    As the next step in this series of diplomatic successes (among which the major ones iare for sure the Morean-Tarajani alliance, and the decision of New-Zealand to join OMNI, following the signature of one of the strongest bilateral agreements of the last decades between the Kingdom and the Social-Democracy) now the Kingdom is hosting the historial talks between Arveyres and New-Zealand, under request of the Arveyran government.
    The talks, which aims at re-building the relationship between the two countries, is being held at Palace Van Sondenburg-Sorenberg on Lake Horat, already the stage of the bilateral talks between Friederick Wilhelm II and the late Morean Sultan Ioannis IX Kallergis. The palace, kindly offered by House Van Sondenburg-Sorenberg on behalf of the Royal Landsraad, will also host the balls and banquets prepared for the arriving guests.


    An aerial view of Palace Van Sondenburg-Sorenberg on Lake Horat.

    "This is an important day, for New Tarajan and its allies alike." King Friederick Wilhelm said while addressing the weekly session of the Landsraad before meeting his guests "It is our strongest hope that our mediation will help mend the wounds of the past, building a better and brighter future for Arveyres, New-Zealand, and New Tarajan."
    Words echoed by De Witte-Beulen: "We intend to commit ourselves fully and deeply to our role of mediators, now and in the future. New Tarajan has a great deal of responsibility in shaping a better and more peaceful environment in international politics." he said.
    For the occasion, and to thank him for his role, the King has also been bestowed by Queen Sofia of the Grand Cross of the Order of Marina. The sovereign already declared to the Landsraad that "it will be the utmost honor, for me, to wear the cross of an order built in memory of such a beloved Queen."

    CHRYSLER AND TKL SIGNS DEAL

    While the heads of State are busy with the NZ-Arveyres talks, another important deal has been signed this morning in Astana. Namely, Chrysler Group representatives and the Tarajani Koninklijke Leger (Tarajani Royal Army) have reached an agreement over the supply of new vehicles.
    The TKL has been busy in the last months trying to find a suitable replacement for its oldest MBT, the Reaction Mk.II, actually under usage by the Royal Guard Corps (the rest of the army already adopted the Antanaresian-built Serenade). Thus, the TKL asked for Chrysler to present its offer: the Group representatives have shown the Chrysler MBT (already used by the NZDF), adapted to better meet the requirements submitted by New Tarajan. As a result Chrysler has now secured a massive deal, worth of millions of Prands, which now comes along the previous one signed with the NZDF in rescuing the iconic NZ company, still suffering from the damages made by the war.
    Chrysler will also supply the TLK with new, advanced, supply/recon vehicles for special forces operations, while details have not yet been unveiled about the meeting between Chrysler representatives and the board of Itardesign.

    167 YEARS OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL MONARCHY
    MOREAN LEADERSHIP CELEBRATES WITH UKZ

    UKZ Day is celebrated on the 20th of May and commemorates the signing of the Buckingham Treaty which ended the Civil War and reunited the Northern Republic of Zackalantis and the Southern Kingdom of Zackalantis.

    The Day is celebrated with a parade in Cair Paravel along the King's Street with the Her Majesty receiving the salute. Sultana Aikaterini II Kallergis of Achaian Morea was the chief guest of the parade.

    The parade began with the Prime Minister paying his respects by laying the wreath at the Eternal Flame at the UKZ Gate which burns for all the martyrs of the Civil War. He then went to the dais to wait for the arrival of the queen and the chief guest who were escorted by the Prime Minister's Guard.
    From there the flag was hoisted and the national anthem was played and a 21 gun salute was given.

    Several contingents and regiments of her Majesty's Armed Forces marched and gave the salute followed by the latest nuclear missile- Agni was also brought on display. This was followed by several floats from different Union Kingdoms.


    After this, the dignitaries went back to Cair Paravel House to have a formal lunch.

    The UKZ uses these events to build international relations and this invite to Morea paves the way for closer relations as both these nations look to build economic and diplomatic ties. Morea is looking to pave the way into the Zack market, one of the most liberal and competitive in the world and even have Zack military and diplomatic backing against Eurasian aggression and Morea pledges support with UKZ against Ireland.

    The 167th UKZ Day saw the UKZ as a strong and vibrant democracy and also the most liberal nation in the world.

    Chrysler Heavy Industries Secures Vanguard Contracts



    The Chrysler Group's direct subsidiary "Chrysler Heavy Industries" has won the contracts for the NZ Navy's 15 year "Vanguard Project" fleet revitalisation. The contracts will see the companies ship yards supply 10 new Vanguard class Aircraft carriers and 32 new Sentinel class Destroyers over the course of the next 15 years, with the first Vanguard class carrier "NZS Vanguard" to be operational in 2020, replacing the current Goliath class carriers. The first Sentinel class destroyer is expected to be completed in November 2018, replacing the outdated Eurasian designed Blitzen class destroyers currently employed by the navy. 

    The Vanguard Project is worth a phenomenal $231Bn NZD for the struggling Chrysler Group, at a estimated cost of $10Bn per Vanguard class carrier and $4Bn per Sentinel class destroyer. This will come as a massive relief to the Group, whose motor vehicle divisions have come under intense strife over the past year, posting their 13th consecutive monthly loss since the invasion. Hope for the giant now rest on the back of their defence divisions, with the group securing two massive supply contracts for land based vehicles and MBTs from both the NZ Army and Tarajani Koninklijke Leger (Royal Army) in addition to todays massive NZ Navy contract. The Chrysler group however lost their bids for the NZ Air Force's contracts, with privately owned NZADS (New-Zealand Aeronatical, Defence and Space Corporation)  winning the contracts for new fighter jets and other aircrafts instead. 

    The exorbident military spending and plethora of revitalisation contracts are a direct result of New-Zealands current geopolitical situation with the nation sitting right next to a openly hostile Eurasian Empire, which commands the second largest and most experiened armed forces on the planet. As proven by the invasion, the NZDF is criminally underequipped and incapable of defending the Social Democracy from a decisive act of direct aggression from the Eurasian Empire. Even with assistance from other OMNI Enforcer nations, the time required for their mostly northern based fleets to reach the Social Democracy would be more than long enough for the Eurasian forces to overpower the NZDF and capture the mainland. While the NZDF likes to parade themselves as the winners of the invasion war, it's common knowledge that the war was really won by the Militia's, with the NZDF being overpowered and effectively wiped out within a fortnight. With the new upgrades, increased funding and additional manpower, the NZDF should in theory be capable of defending the Social Democracy against any foreign aggression, or atleast long enough till OMNI reinforcements can arrive.
