    Highly Successful Aloian State Visit

    The Aloian state visit to New-Zealand has proved highly successful, with the re-signing of the Nelson Accord once more granting Aloia a 99-year extension to their lease over New Brighton for the paltry non inflated sum of $7,300. Since it's acquisition in late 1918, the island of New Brighton has grown from a uninhabited island off the coast of New-Zealand to a thriving city state of 6 million. New Brighton is now a global commerce, finance and transport hub. Thanks to it's close proximity to New-Zealand much of the kiwi merchant fleet has taken to registering New Brighton as their home port, using their waters to anchor down before finally making their journey through the Hope Strait, into the Zelandic Sea and onwards to once of New-Zealands "eastern" ports. New Brighton is also home to Halfmoon Naval Base, which houses a substantial portion of the First Antacostian Fleet. In recent years the First Antacostian Fleet has invaluable in aiding the New-Zeleand Navy's Eastern Fleet in their fight against piracy on vital trade routes to the north of New Brighton. It is for these reasons that it is hardly surprising New-Zealand was all too happy to extend the lease of New Brighton. Quite frankly any attempts to change or handover the lease back to New-Zealand would be suicidal on the Social Democracy's part. It did however come to a slightly surprise that Solidarity supported the President's motion in congress to officially have the Nelson Accord given a right of renewal, where it had previously been implied but not explicitly stated. Under this ruling, the Aloian Government has the legal right to have their lease renewed as long as they have honored and complied with the preconditions stated in the latest lease agreement. Should the New-Zealand Government wish to not renew the lease, they must prove in a supreme court case against Aloian defense that they violated the preconditions of the lease. While to many this may seem as a move that gains the Social Democracy nothing, we can assume that this was gesture of goodwill or a part of other closed door negotiations with the Aloian delegation. 

    In addition to this, Queen Victoria and Chancellor Nelson have both met with President Jacotey and opposition leader Jack Anderson on separate occasions, with inside sources reporting that all were in good spirits. That said the Queen and Chancellor did as expected spend considerably more time with the President. In the background to all of these pleasantries delegations from both nations toiled away to further trade and defense alliances between the two nations, with considerable progress being made towards dropping visa restrictions to allow easier flow between the two nations for work, education and tourism. 


    "No intention to surrender East Ireland" - Jacotey
    Belfast, capital of East Ireland

    President Jacotey has shown her teeth for the first time in her leadership, coming out swinging against Sinn Fein and other ultra nationalistic Irish political movements. In a rousing speech delivered live today from the Executive Office, Jacotey pledged to the people of New Ireland that the rest of the Social Democracy is committed to them and committed to keeping East Ireland an autonomous part of the Social Democracy. The most recent polling shows support rates of 84% for remaining in the Social Democracy, and only 12% against. Jacotey pledged to move heaven and earth to protect her constituents should it be necessary, hinting that military action may be used should the United Ireland Pact or any of the Zack Irish ultra-nationalist groups attempt to forcefully take over East Ireland. Jacotey went on to also support Zack Ireland and denounced United Ireland as an ultra-nationalist revolutionary force with no regard for the well being and long term prosperity of Ireland, which has thrived since the partition. The Social Democracy has poured countless resources into East Ireland, bank rolling and bailing out the crumbling economy. In a short 5 years East Irelands economy has gone from a basket case to a growing first world economy, with thriving ports and a world leading shipbuilding industry based out of Belfast. In fact the bailed out Harland and Wolff shipbuilding company has began paying off it's debts and secured numerous lucrative contracts from commercial lines as well as the NZ Coast Guard to build 12 Dexter-Class National Security Cutters. The NZ Navy also has a foward operations base in Belfast, which is currently the home port of 5 Sentinel-class destroyers alongside other support vessels. Their current role is mostly to patrol and protect the trade routes in that area from pirate activity. While Jacotey has made no move to bolster NZ presence in the region, it has been hinted that should tensions rise and the threats of aggression be made, the Social Democracy will respond by increasing their military presence in the area as a precautionary defense measure. Jacotey has also all but ruled out any chance of attending talks with United Ireland leaders, stating that should they wish to meet it will only be on New-Zealand or neutral soil, and only with the support of the Zack governance. Jacotey made it a point to reiterate that the Social Democracy stands firmly behind the people of East Ireland and it's Zack ally.

    Collins Slams New Zealand



    Sinn Fein President and hopeful Prime Minister of a United Ireland Edward Collins slammed New Zealand and its President in a speech to a group of supporters in Cork, Ireland. This comes after New Zealand sounded its refusal to give over Irish lands and threatened military action.

    "How dare they. How dare they threaten military action against us! How dare they refuse to give Irishmen and Irishwomen their land back! How dare they trash this movement as some nutcase ultra-nationalist movement! This is what dirty imperialism looks like. You take a country's land and when the people of that country try and get it back in the fight for self-determination you slam them, slander them, and threaten them.

    In the past, Irish leaders messed up. We lost sight of the struggle of Irish people in their fight for freedom, justice, and equality. Our leaders looked to themselves and not to the Irish people. We didn't solve problems. And when the going got rough we gave up. We, as leaders of the Irish people and citizens of the Irish nation, have learned this the hard way. We have seen our country torn apart by two imperialistic nations who refuse to give up land that isn't there's. This can not continue. I assure you if they had to kill every single Irishman and woman to save just one of their citizens, they would. They do not care for the Irish people they care for our land and resources.

    They call us ultra-nationalistic to try and put this movement in a bad light. Nationalism would be if we believed our nation was so supreme it had the right to take over other countries and then refuse to give over that land. What we are doing is begging for the right to control our own ways once again. Ireland is a place for all people of all races, genders, sexualities, socioeconomic backgrounds, nationalities, etc. But it must be governed by Irish laws and an Irish parliament. Not foreign laws and foreign parliaments. They do not know what it's like to be Irish so how can they actually govern us? They can not and they should not.

    They threaten the Irish way of life if we do not submit to their imperialistic nature and laws. They give out FAKE poll numbers to make us think that they have large support. WE will not stand for it. I want to meet with the leaders of the UKZ and New Zealand because Irish lands should belong to Irish people, and be governed by Irish laws passed in an Irish parliament. "

    Governor Patterson Throws Support Behind Jacotey   



    Governor Siobhan Patterson has of East Ireland (pictured above at her swearing in ceremony) has thrown her support behind the Social Democracy and President Maisie Jacotey. Patterson denounced the unification calls of Collins and his "sensationalist bandwagon of misled fools" as being ill conceived and unnecessary. Patterson went on to reiterate that East Ireland is an autonomous principality of the Social Democracy and still retains it's identity, self determinant and freedom. Patterson of the Unionist Democratic Party has won both elections since the partition of Ireland, and currently rules with a majority coalition with the Social Democratic and Labour Party and the Progressive Party. In fact the only one of the 6 parties in parliament to oppose the Social Democracy is the Separatist Front which only holds 1 seat in parliament, an electorate seat won by it's leader in his home town. Furthermore Patterson had a scathing response to Collins' claims that the opinion polls quoted by Jacotey were fake and presumably rigged, calling the Sinn Fein leader and spoiled child out of touch with reality. Overall the tone of the speech was fairly blunt, East Ireland does not want to leave the Social Democracy and they are more than happy to continue to exist as an independent principality under the Social Democracy's umbrella. The crucial aspect of the speech however was when Patterson went on to turn Collins' own argument against himself. At points pointedly repeating his exact speech word for word, substituting Ireland for East Ireland and New-Zealand for United Ireland. 

    The world watches for Collins' next move, now that it is apparent neither East Ireland or New-Zealand are willing to play ball, much like the UKZ. While Collins' may be gaining some traction in parts of Zack Ireland, he has so far failed to make any significant progress in converting the people of East Ireland to his cause. Many question whether Collins' will gracefully back down or attempt to force East Ireland and ultimately the Social Democracy's hands. Inside reports indicate that the East Irish People's Militia, the East Irish Police Force and ofcouse the NZDF are all watching the rising tensions with keen interest. As has been said before the Social Democracy is more than happy to bolster it's forces in the region but it is understood the East Irish administration and Governor Patterson in particular would prefer to use their own people where possible. Worrying that should there be a large influx of kiwi forces in the area public opinion may swing out of favour with the Social Democracy.

    PMO: ABOUT TIME THE IRELAND ISSUE IS WRAPPED UP


    The Rt. Hon. Dr. Shashi Tharoor, Her Majesty's Prime Minister and also Minister of External Affairs made a statement on the last day of parliament before the house broke for the Easter recess.
    In a question directed at the Ministry of External Affairs by the Rt.Hon. Member of Glasgow North-West (Scottish National Party) regarding the issue of Zack Ireland, the PM said this,
    "Let us not forget that it was Ireland that attacked us. They underestimated our power and prowess and they had no regard for international law and order.
    Our occupation came was committed to end the hostilities and was aimed at eventually handing over authority to the Irish people following which our two nations could live in peace and cooperation.
    New-Zealand helped us greatly in our time of need, and also helped the Irish people attain the ideals of freedom and democracy.
    My government is ready to hand over Zack Ireland to the Irish, but not before the last of the scheduled referendums. It is of great importance to realize that South Ireland (Free Britain) might want to join us as our newest presidency, and in the true spirit of democracy, we must give them that opportunity.

    But currently, in order to cool tensions, we have invited Irish leadership, COZI, and the New-Zealand government to Cair Paravel to discuss the issue at length.
    I would like to take this opportunity to reassure the New-Zealand government that these talks are completely and wholly supported by the Zack Government and I urge them to send their representatives to our constitutional capital to sort this matter out because it has been too long and it is about time we wrap up the Irish conflict. I will also personally make this appeal to President Jacotey to send her representatives here.


    The government is facing a lot of pressure from opposition and people over the growing number of Catholic and Protestant skirmishes and violence in Ireland and certain parts of the UKZ.
    The UKZ while adopting secularism in 1947, is a largely Roman Catholic nation with Catholics making up around 52% of the population and Protestants making up nearly half of that.

    COMMONWEALTH CITIZENS WIN RIGHT TO VOTE



    On the last day of Parliament before the Easter Recess, The Lower House passed a bill that permitted non-zack citizens of the Commonwealth Council nations to vote for their Members of Parliament (MPs), Members of Legislative Assembly (MLAs) and Mayor or Municipal Council Corporators.

    This amendment to the Franchise Bill (1855), will allow any non-zack commonwealth association nation citizen to vote for the above-mentioned individuals provided they have resided in the UKZ for a minimum of 2 years (for working individuals) and one year (for students). This will now mean that citizens from Sdudeti-Karabak, North Ajania etc. will be able to vote. All New-Zealand citizens will also be awarded this right (even though New-Zealand has only membership through the name of Drakenburg).
    However, foreign nationals who are citizens of the association cannot vote in Zack Elections if they are working in an embassy or consulate or are employees of a foreign government office or department. They cannot also be elected/unelected/nominated individuals of any foreign government branch and should not hold royal titles.

    This was passed in 2017 monsoon session by the Commonwealth Council (upper house) and today after clearing the lower house hurdle, it is now awaiting royal assent.

    The Upper House however, rejected a bill that allowed Commonwealth Association member nations to get representation in the upper house.

    THE OMNI RESEARCH INSTITUTE


    One of the reform proposals by the UKZ to the OMNI included the establishment of the OMNI Research Institute in the city of Sonia, Presidency of Augusta, UKZ. It will be the host of several courses for postgraduate and PhD candidates from OMNI member nations.

    Courses like,
    1. Military and Weapons Technology
    2. Climate Change
    3. Environmental Management
    4. Bioprospection
    5. Electrical/Mechanical/Software Engineering
    6. Geology

    are just some of the courses the institute will start with, in the future there as it expands a wider variety of courses and subjects are expected to be offered at the institute. The main goal of the establishment of this institute is the skill development of the young citizens of OMNI and the promotion of exciting research that will come out of this hub of knowledge.

    OMNI ambassadors are scheduled to attend the inauguration. The Institute will be inaugurated by His Royal Highness Prince Charles (Prince of Edinburgh).

    Also in attendance will be their Royal Highness of New Tarajan as they begin their most extensive visit to the UKZ.

    THE ROYAL VISIT

    The King and Queen of New Tarajan will be visiting the UKZ in their most extensive visit to these united kingdoms yet. The UKZ is interpreting this visit as a reaffirmation of Tarajani-Zack friendship and the recognition of UKZ as the voice of the developing world.
    The royal couple will also be the chief guests at the 164th UKZ Day Celebrations in Cair Paravel- marking the day the UKZ became a constitutional monarchy.

    Day 1: Dinner with Her Majesty and the royal family at Buckingham Palace, Buckingham City, Windsor

    Day 2: Inauguration of the OMNI Insititute at Sonia, Agusta.

    Meet with the Prime Minister, cabinet and Parliamentary Delegation (opposition MPs included) followed by Dinner with the
    Provost at Cair Paravel House.

    Laying the wreath at UKZ Gate to remember the fallen men and women of Her Majesty's Armed Forces.

    Day 3: Visit with the Manalsu (Leader of the world's Roghtanganistines) in New Viscos. This is significant because the Manalsu is the first from New Tarajan and the Roghtanganistines prepare for the celebration of Frabjous Day on the 21st of May which commemorates Roghtang's spirit being adopted by the Lord Omegus as his only daughter and her being the first mortal to attain immortality. This is an especially sacred time for the community.

    Day 4: Visit to Goa- Visit the beaches and enjoy the sea food

    Day 5: Visit to Trivandrum- Boat ride through the backwaters of Thiruvananthapuram.

    Day 6: Laying the wreath at the Memorial for King Zachariah at Delhi, Britain which is the heart of the UKZ and the capital of the old British Kingdom.

    Day 7: Royal Wedding in Buckingham City, Windsor

    Day 8: UKZ Day Parade at Cair Paravel followed by lunch and a ball at the Provost's Palace- Cair Paravel House.

    ROYAL HOUSE VISITS UKZ
    A large delegation for the longest State visit of a Tarajani monarch in the country


    King Friederick Wilhelm and Queen Beatrice speaking at journalists after their landing at Cair Paravel.

    Cair Paravel.
    The official inauguration of the OMNI Research Institute (also known as OMNIRI) has offered the perfect occasion for what is already the longest State visit ever performed by a Tarajani monarch in the United Kingdoms of Zackalantis.
    King Friederick Wilhelm II and Queen Beatrice, indeed, have landed in Cair Paravel, followed by a large delegation including the highest ranking officers and political officials of the Kingdom, and even the Sdudeti-Karabak and North Ajania's heads of State, Grand Duke Conrad and Princess Elise Angelique.
    The eight-days visit will encompass tours of historical places, formal occasions, and even religious festivities, as the Royal House will meet the Manalsu, head of the Roghtanganistines, who is, for the first time in history, a Tarajani. Of course, political and diplomatic issues will be at the center of the top-level discussions to be held, including the situation in Wales and Ireland, which is deeply concerning the Tarajani government as a possible focus point for a violent escalation in Altiganta.
    But the most important role of this State visit is a symbolic one: Astana never made a mystery of the fact that, in Tarajani eyes, Zackalantis is a fundamental actor inside OMNI, and a strategically-relevant ally. New Tarajan is willing to strengthen the ties already linking it to what was, until the last decades, an historical rival on the continent. Among the delegation from the Kingdom, the Minister for Economy and Finance, Countess Elizabeth Wilhelmine Van Aardenne, is accompanied by the Secretary for Infrastructures and Development, Gustav Visser, the goal being to begin talking about the possibility of a joint Tarajani-Zack initiative for the creation of a high-speed railway linking Astana and Cair Paravel, as a first step for a multi-national logistic infrastructure between New Tarajan, the UKZ, Sdudeti-Karabak, and North Ajania.
    The only missing personality has been Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen: already busy trying to defy the domestic political crisis which is engulfing the Kingdom with a power struggle inside the Landsraad, the Prime Minister has been represented by his deputy, Duke Bernhard Van Aardenne-Gliefen.

    CELEBRATIONS BEGIN IN THE UKZ

    This past week has been a huge celebration after celebration in the UKZ. The nation saw the Royal wedding of Heike Wilhelmine Helena Van Moor of the Duchy of Anneland and Prince Henry of Windsor, the birth of the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the celebration of Pentecost, the 164th UKZ Day and the Roghtanganistine Feast of Frabjous Day.

    ROYAL WEDDING


    on the 19th of May, the couple said their vows during mass in the Windsor palace chapel in the city of Buckingham. The Tarajani princess' veil was a nod to the Commonwealth as it had embroidered into it flowers representing the natural flora of the all the commonwealth association member states.

    The princess was baptised into the Roman Catholic church at the Easter Vigil service on the 31st of March this year.

    Following the nuptials, the couple went around in a horse-drawn carriage around the city of Windsor waving to the cheering crowds. Millions of people from the UKZ, New Tarajan, across the commonwealth and the world tuned into their television to watch the spectacle of pageantry that is the royal wedding.

    164th UKZ DAY


    The 164th UKZ Day commemorates 163 years since the signing of the Buckingham treaty which ended the civil war and established the Constitutional Monarchy of the United Kingdoms of Zackalantis.

    The day is commemorated with a parade down King's Road in Cair Paravel where the nation's armed forces march, the best military tech is paraded including the country's indigenously built nukes and missiles. This is followed by different tableaux and floats from the select presidencies of the UKZ which highlight their culture or history.
    This ends with stunts by the army and a flypast by the air force.

    The Royals of New Tarajan were the chief guests at this year's festivities and stood by the Provost as he received the salute.

    FRABJOUS DAY AND PENTECOST

    Frabjous Day commemorates the immortality of the soul of Roghtang, who became the first mortal whose soul was assumed into heaven after her death. Her soul also slew the demon spawning on the earth. It is believed by roghtanganistines that she was declared the Queen of Heaven as well.

    Pentecost is commemorated by Catholics as the day the holy spirit descended on the apostles of Jesus and is regarded as the birth of the church. The UKZ embassy in New Tarajan has decided to sponsor St. Peter's Catholic Church in Astana. The church's expenses for days like Christmas and the holy week will be sponsored by the Zack Embassy. This is a gesture of goodwill to the Catholics of New Tarajan- part of the foreign policy of this government to build bonds with the people abroad using religion as a common ground.

    UKZ AND EURASIA TO REOPEN DIPLOMATIC RELATIONSHIP


    The rivalry and animosity that has derailed several international peace efforts and has been a part of both world wars, seems to finally have a chance to mend.
    The Minister for External Affairs (MEA) on Friday morning in a press conference revealed that the Zack government reached out to their Eurasian counterparts in hope to restart diplomatic relations between the two countries. The MEA was pleased to say that the Eurasians were very gracious and welcomed the Zack government's move to rekindle diplomatic relations.

    MEA stated that the Eurasian embassy will be located in Cair Paravel outside the National Capital Territory. "We will be ready to house Eurasian diplomats and embassy staff in the embassy by early December, once renovation of the building has been completed,", said the minister. The minister also informed the press that "The UKZ will be opening its embassy in the Capitoline Prefecture of Julium in Eurasia".
    "We are pleased to announce that we also have the support of the royal family, and Lord Ivar Mountbatten and his husband Mr. James Coyle will be flying to Eurasia to inaugurate the Zack embassy there"

    The minister described this as an Early Christmas present to the world.

    The opposition was up in arms against the move with the Conservative party calling it a "betrayal of Zackalantis" and the Zack People's Party labelling it an "insult to men and woman killed by Eurasian atrocities around the world".
    The Liberal party which was the first to move towards mending ties with Eurasia claimed that the Congress was "moving too quickly", Liberal Party president Mr Gandhi said that while the liberal party applauds all moves in favour of peace, the Liberal would initially rather establish informal ties before allowing the Eurasians to open an embassy here.

    Adequate security has also been deployed to the under-construction embassy for fear of attack or sabotage by anti-Eurasian groups. Mos Maiorum temples have also been provided with police protection for fear of attack by Catholic and Christian extremist groups.

    However, it has not all be negative reactions to this breaking news. Certain Christian interest groups and religious freedom movements have welcomed this move and have stated that it will finally allow Eurasian Christians to travel to the UKZ on pilgrimages to several world-renowned shrines and partake in the Zack Christmas festivities.

    Tourism companies are also overjoyed, as they claim that there will be a huge influx of Eurasian tourists. Tourism agencies also speculate that this might make the UKZ the largest tourism market in the world. The Zack Ministry of Tourism has also decided to run advertisement campaigns targeted at Eurasians encouraging them to visit the UKZ and trying to convince them that the UKZ is safe for all tourists.

    LGBTQ+ support groups are thrilled that the first royal same-sex couple will be opening the Zack embassy and they claim that it will be an excellent statement of the rights of the LGBTQ community enjoys in the UKZ and encourage LGBTQ Eurasians to visit the UKZ and share their culture and experiences with us.

    The President of the Commonwealth Games Federation said that he will look forward to the entry of Eurasian athletes and teams in the next commonwealth games under the banner of the Independent Commonwealth Athletes.

    Political commentators have however, commented that the ZNC is trying to woo Liberal voters with this move and this could pay off in the upcoming election.

    EURASIA TO ESTABLISH EMBASSY IN UKZ
    Zack foreign ministry to open embassy in Julium as well; economists and diplomats overjoyed


    Diplomatic Prime Minister Margalus answering questions at his press conference this morning.

    In a shocking diplomatic announcement heralding the Saturnalia season, the Ministry of Diplomacy announced today that diplomatic relations between Zackalantis and Eurasia would be reopened. The Ministry announced this in a press conference held in Julium, with Diplomatic Prime Minister Lucius Tractus Margalus announcing the establishment of a Eurasian embassy in Cair Paravel, as well as a Zack embassy in Julium. Prime Minister Margalus stated "[I]t brings me great pleasure to announce the opening of mutual diplomatic relations between the Empire of Eurasia and the UKZ.

    Diplomatic relations between the two nations have been scarce in the years following the Great War, which formally ended in 1946. Following the war, which saw a Duresio-Eurasian invasion of Zackalantis, Eurasia and the UKZ shared only informal relations. These relations were broken off following the Ienaran War in 1975, which saw a second invasion of Zackalantis by Eurasian forces. This announcement marks the first time the two nations have had formal ties since 1933, a massive step in reconciliation between the two nations.

    His Imperial Majesty Emperor Augustus IV has not commented publicly on the matter, but inside sources indicate He is pleased with the agreement and has given it His approval. Senators and Proconsuls, however, have voiced their dissatisfaction, with comments ranging from political to racial. Sen. Decimus Florianus Margalus (Paestum) of the Optimates, no relation to the Prime Minister of Diplomacy, called the deal "an utter travesty," continuing "this action is completely demeaning to this great Empire."

    Proconsul Abelus Clarius Tremus was harshly critical, giving a blistering speech on the Senate floor in which he stated, "to make any deal with these savages, savages whom we have defeated thrice in war, sullies the blood and spirit of our Empire." Not all opinion has been critical, however, with Populares Senator Magdalena Tertia Septimiana (Beneventum) saying in a TV interview, "this is a tremendous step towards healing the divide between Zackalantis and Eurasia, and I am pleased we are undertaking it."

    His Imperial Majesty has not yet announced who shall be granted the ambassadorship, but the expected contenders are the former Prime Minister of Diplomacy, Proconsul Aufidius Labellus Marianus, who served from 1999-2006, Praetor Paulus Septimus Agrippa of Civitius, and former Prime Minister of Trade Kyne Trabella. It is expected that a Deosian, not a Maiorist, will be appointed, in order to avoid the conflicts which may result from a Maiorist ambassador in a majority-Christian country.

    NEW TARAJAN WELCOMES ZACK-EURASIAN OPENINGS
    Ambassador in Julium tasked with asking for clarifications after senator's verbal attacks

    Astana.
    The Kingdom of New Tarajan warmly welcomes the overtures made by both the Zack and the Eurasian governments, which are leading to the first openings of diplomatic representations in both countries after more than half a century. This is the summary of what Margrave De Witte-Beulen, Grand Pensionary and Minister for Foreign Affairs, stated in a press conference held at the Palace of Government late this morning.
    "It is our hope that this will be just the first step in mending the ties between two countries once divided by an apparently unsurmountable abyss. This is the right path to follow for a more peaceful, cooperative, world." he said to journalists asking him about the Kingdom's position on the issue.
    When one of the journalists asked for a statement regarding the rumors, which were spreading in the past few days, about concerns in the government for a possible pro-Eurasian shifts of the United Kingdom, he stongly rejected the allegations: "Whoever thinks in these terms, it means he's still living inside the narrowness of Cold War's times. This is not our position. The United Kingdom of Zackalantis is one of our most precious and important partners and allies, and Eurasia is a fundamental member of the international community with which we have a profitable and long-lasting relationship based on mutual respect and trust. When two such countries decide to mend their ties, it can only be a good thing for us too."
    To give strength to his words, the Grand Pensionary also confirmed that "our ambassador in Julium, Landgrave Karel Van Hogendorp, will personally participate to the opening of the Zack embassy in Eurasia."
    Financial markets also answered positively: all indexes in Eindhoven skyrocketed at the news, and particularly the New Tarajan Investment Authority saw a decisive increase in its share's values, thanks to the new chances opened by its strong relationship with Zack authorities and financial firms.


    The Palace of Government, Astana.

    However, De Witte-Beulen also had to deal with some questions regarding the recent verbal attacks brought by Eurasian senator Trumplius inside the Senate against New-Zealand and, allegedly, New Tarajan.
    "I have personally asked ambassador Van Hogendorp to speak with Consuls Robedo and Nestor about what happened in the Senate." he said "Of course, we have no intention to interfere with Eurasian domestic affairs, nor it is our right to express judgement on their politicians. However, I have the precise duty to ensure to uphold the honor of the Tarajani people, and that of our friends and allies from New-Zealand. Those insults against them were gratuitous, and I'm sure they do not represent the stance of neither the Eurasian Senate nor the people. We do not know for sure whether the senator insulted us, but we want to know."
    No comment has come yet from Palace Van Geldern, seat of the Landsraad, nor from the Royal Diet, and for the moment the issue, for sure regarded as a minor one, is completely delegate to the government through standard channels.

    Cranson Takes Power During Times of Uncertainty



    Following a term of relatively uneventful governance under outgoing President Jacotey, Solidarity has once again taking control of the Social Democracy under the leadership of now President Richard Cranson. Cranson marks a new era in Solidarity's ethos as they move further and further away from their socialist roots and towards liberalism. Cranson himself has campaigned largely on efficient governance, taking the ideas of Solidarity's last highly successful Garagen administration and applying them forwards with the promise of cutting down on the growing bureaucracy that ultimately cost Garagen his final election. As far as Cranson's cabinet goes he retains many heavyweight Solidarity names such as former President Garagen as Secretary of Foreign Affairs and Trade, revered former NZDF High Commander Shepard as Secretary of Defence, and up and coming frontrunner Joselyn Smyth as Vice President. All in all Cranson holds a stable and exceptionally strong administration going ahead into the next four years. Key goals for Cranson's administration is to curb the current budget deficit, address the "unaffordable" housing market, and improve the railway network. 

    His first real action as President, almost fittingly so, was to respond to alleged statements made in the Eurasian Senate on the night of the NZ election by a Senator Trumplius. When asked for a response in his post election press statement Cranson did not give a direct response, rather opting to chuckle and say "my dog likes to bark sometimes for attention too". While Cranson may now be choosing to outwardly show indifference to Eurasian aggression, his cabinet choices in Garagen and Shepard speak otherwise. Both of these political heavyweights, have an open history of less than cordial relations with the eastern superpower, and bringing them out of retirement with the foreign affairs and defence portfolios will undoubtably mean a reverse in Jacotey's controversial appeasement policies. As Cranson said in one of his pre-election debates, "We're a leader of the free world and it's about time we started leading again".

    OMNI HEADS OF STATE AND GOVERNMENT GATHERS AT ASTANA
    The meeting will be followed by largest joint military exercise ever

    Astana.
    With surprising rapidity, after a brief announcement, a special OMNI meeting as been summoned in Astana. The Kingdom's capital welcomed this morning the Alliance's heads of State and government: the first to arrive was New-Zealand newly-elected President Cranson, who was welcomed two days ago by the traditional party made up by the King, the Grand Pensionary, and the Landsraad Lord President, for what will be his first State visit abroad.
    The UKZ Prime Minister arrived yesterday afternoon, while Prince Valerian Higencourt of Antanares reached the capital this morning by train.
    But what's the meaning of such a special meeting? The answer to this question, already circulating among analysts and experts soon after the announcement, has finally be answered by the first joint statement released after the meeting. In a press conference held at the Palace of Government together with his colleagues, Grand Pensionary De Witte-Beulen clearly stated that "we wish to show the strongest commitment, by all member States, in pursuing common security, peace, and prosperity, as the fundamental principles upon which the Alliance rests", particularly against "new threats which may arise from a variety of actors, threatening our core interests, or principles, way of life, and national honour."
    The last two words, in particular, has been understood by some as a reference to the recent attacks brought by Eurasian senator Trumplius against both Zackalantis and New Tarajan. The senator's words, while generally received in the Kingdom as nothing more than blatant insults, have had a stronger impact in Zackalantis, particularly after the recent decision of both the UKZ and Eurasian to begin mending their diplomatic ties. Some analysts came even to suspect that the idea of the meeting came from the UKZ, but these remains just hypotheses.
    Meanwhile, the Grand Pensionary made explicit reference to Zackalantis, when indicating his colleague, the UKZ Prime Minister: "New Tarajan and Zackalantis have built an historic partnership. The conflicts of the past belong to the mysts of history, not to the present. The Kingdom could not value more the benefits that come for our friendship and alliance with a country which is, beyond all doubts, the leader of the developing world."
    But words of praise came also for New-Zealand and Antanares, both countries "whose DNA is so strongly linked with our own, that we could define ourselves as the members of a single family."


    Moreover, the new OMNI meeting coincided with the largest joint military exercise ever organized by the Alliance. Trident Juncture, this the name of the exercise, was already on schedule, but it is hard not to note the coincidence.
    During the operation, the Alliance deployed thousands of land, air, and sea assets, in an extraordinary show of military power, performance, and efficiency, whose political significant cannot be underestimated, particularly considering that cooperation and inter-operability where clearly the focus of the whole exercise. It is also significant that its main focus is a scenario which includes a possible invasion of the UKZ by a third power.
    Trident Juncture will last until the end of the week, with a special visit by the Alliance heads of State on Thursday, before their final meeting at The Ring, OMNI Headquarters in the Shraman Islands.
    Many inside and outside the Kingdom are questioning whether there's a direct link between New Tarajan's decision to host the meeting so quickly, and the political issues looming over the country in this period. Some have apparently noticed that the King and the Grand Pensionary are showing an increasingly formal and perhaps more cold attitude toward each other during the recent meetings with the foreign allies. But whether these are only allegations without ground, or the visible sign of a pending crisis, is pure speculation.

    BREAKING NEWS - Garagen Assassinated At OMNI Conference

    Pictured - Garagen's ambulance being escorted by metropolitan police to Ibn Sina Royal Hospital in Astana

    BREAKING NEWS - Former President Naveen Garagen, who served 3 terms with famously high approval ratings following the Eurasian invasion attempt, has been admitted to Ibn Sina Royal Hospital in Astana, New Tarajan at 6.12pm local time after collapsing suddenly during the OMNI conference. We can now confirm that the much loved former President unfortunately passed away at 10.37pm local time. The announcement brings an end to the rumour mill that's been circulating since all reporters and other personnel attending the OMNI conference were detained and an ambulance with escort was seen rushing to the nearby hospital, which was shortly thereafter swarmed with a heavy police presence. We have since learnt that all those in attendance at the conference are still in police custody with no outside contact and will be getting released on a case by case basis following investigation. The New Zealand Secret service is currently working closely with the Tarajani authorities  

    UPDATE: Majority of those detained have been released early this morning following roughly 6 hours of investigation. Those released, including our own reporters, however have been placed under strict secrecy orders and threatened with jail time should they breach the order. Secret service and other relevant authorities have remained tight lipped about the investigation but have revealed that Garagen's death is being treated as a murder investigation and the preliminary cause of death being released as cyanide poisoning causing cardiac arrest. Meanwhile in New-Zealand the nation is in a state of mourning, with candle light vigils being held outside capitol hill and likewise throughout the cities and towns of the nation. The assassination of such a beloved leader has come as a shock to both New-Zealand and the international community. We will keep you updated as news comes in. 

    UPDATE 2: It's been over 24 hours now and the last of the detained personnel have been released. It seems the investigation has narrowed down to a singular photographer who prosecutors allege shot Garagen with a high dose cyanide pellet using a pen like device. The accused has been taken into Tarajani custody with heavy New-Zealand oversight and has been granted interim name supression until he appears in Tarajani High Court tomorrow, facing life imprisonment either there or in New-Zealand if extradited. While we cannot release much information, court documents reveal that the murder weapon has been found and prosecutors are alleging that the offending party was operating either under the rule or in connection with the Eurasian Frumentarii. An allegation that is sure to cause shockwaves worldwide. It is likely that this case could not only be the assassination of a high ranking diplomat but could also turn into a grand show of defiance against Eurasia and their internationally feared secret spy network. We are yet to see Eurasia's response to having their Frumentarii so openly defied for the first time in history, something seemingly unthinkable till now. On the home front however security at the already tense NZ-Eurasian border has increased, with the NZDF doubling patrols and mobilising its forces in defensive structure, in preparation for potential aggression that is sure to come. 

    UPDATE 3: In a further show of defiance it seems OMNI has opted to continue with its meeting and military exercises, albeit with higher security and the exercises being relocated closer to NZ waters, likely as a response to NZ's increased threat status. President Cranson was quoted by the media saying "He would've wanted us to bounce back."

    EURASIA REFUSES TO COMMENT IN GARAGEN ASSASSINATION
    Prime Ministers of Diplomacy, War, and Frumentarii decline comments


    Eurasian Police standing guard outside the Imperial Embassy in New Zealand.

    BREAKING

    Following the unexpected death of Former President Garagen of New Zealand, all official voices in the Eurasian Government have refused to comment on the situation. The Julium Times reached out to His Imperial Majesty the Emperor, via the Ministry of Imperial Relations, the Prime Ministers of Diplomacy, War, and the Frumentarii, as well as to various Senators and Proconsuls who would be privy to such information. All flatly declined our requests for comments. The public offerings of condolences were similarly terse and unfeeling, with the Ministry of Diplomacy only releasing a curt message, stating, "[w]e regret that the OMNI summit was disrupted by unforeseen events. We look forward to what the future portends."

    This has led many to question if the Imperial Government, specifically the Frumentarii, had any role to play in the death of President Garagen. While it was not explicitly denied by the Ministry of the Realm, it has been common practice for the Ministry to refuse to comment on such incidents around the world, regardless of its involvement. It does raise eyebrows, however, that the entire Imperial Government, as well as the Senate, has refused to comment. This would seem to indicate that, perhaps, there is something going on behind the curtain.

    Deep sources within the Imperial Government did state, however, that the act was not committed by "any individual acting on behalf of the [Ministry of the Frumentarii] in an official capacity."

    EDITORIAL NOTE: The Ministry of Diplomacy has requested that all further inquires be sent to the respective Consulate of Eurasia in the reader's country via telegram. Imperial edict prevents The Julium Times from disseminating information not sanctioned by the Imperial Government in an issue deemed vital to imperial security.

    NEW TARAJAN CONDEMNS GARAGEN'S ASSASSINATION
    Justice, counter-measures, and retaliation under discussion while investigation continues

    Astana.
    After the shock, the questions.
    Who really killed former New-Zealand president Naveen Garagen? Who lies behind the killer's hand? And how will New Tarajan, New-Zealand, and OMNI as a whole react to such a terrible event? The first of these questions is possibly already getting an answer, as a suspect, whose name has not been revealed, is being detained in an unknown location under joint Tarajani-NZ surveillance. In a very short statement released by the Ministry of Homeland Security and Justice, a spokesperson affirmed that "there is strong evidence suggesting that we got the right man." Investigation continues, and the suspect will soon appear in front of a special judicial committee before being officially prosecuted. And here come the first news, since it has been announced also that "due to the incredibly serious nature of the case, and in a sign of respect for Garagen and New-Zealand, jurisdiction will be devolved to the Landsraad Court, the highest judicial body of the Kingdom, chaired by the King himself.


    Three KMar officers on the scene of the attack.

    However, this is not the only novelty aroused by such a tragic event.
    Detainment and surveillance of the suspect have been devolved, as per protocol, to the Koninklijke Marechaussee, the Royal Marshals, one of the federal police corps. However, a few hours ago the States General, under specific request of the King (who even overruled Grand Pensionary De Witte-Beulen in the procedure), granted full jurisdiction on the case to the Royal Homeland Intervention Enforcement Logistics Directorate, better known through its acronymn RHIELD, with the mandate of "pursuing a thourough investigation about the actual perpetrator and whoever supported him in any way, his instigators, and carrying out any action which may be deemed necessary in order to avoid such tragic events to happen again and to bring justice for the death of former president Garagen."De facto, it is the widest mandate ever received by the intelligence and military agency, the most powerful of the Kingdom, and feared all around the world.
    The mandate was personally received by RHIELD Director Wali Azura Roxanne Al Mawsili, who replied that "whoever they are, wherever they come from or are hiding, we will pursue them", referring to the people behind the assassination. As specified by the mandate, the RHIELD will have to closely cooperate with New-Zealand intelligence and security agencies in what will probably be the largest joint effort of this kind undertaken by the two countries until now.
    The message sent by the King and the States General is clear, even more when considering that the Landsraad voted unanimously in favour of the mandate: an unexpected move, in such turbulent times. Why Garagen's assassination caused such a proud reaction in the Kingdom is easy to understand: the OMNI Summit was strongly requested and hosted by New Tarajan; also, since the end of the New-Zealand War, Naveen Garagen has been seen as a close friend and partner, enjoying quite a wide popularity even among Tarajani society, perhaps in a way to redeem after the terrible mistake made at the beginning of the war. Garagen's assassination has thus been perceived as a direct, frontal, attack against the Kingdom in a very delicate moment of its life, particularly by the King and the Landsraad's Houses.
    Commenting over the assassination, Grand Pensionary De Witte-Beulen said: "This is an unprecedented attack against an OMNI leader. We will answer in kind, in the spirit of our alliance and friendship with New-Zealand." The King personally met with the New-Zealand delegation and President Cranson (who also participated at the States General session as guest).
    RHIELD Director Al Mawsili also spoke with the NZ president in private. Later on, when asked about the possible involvement of the Eurasian Frumentarii, she candidly replied that "we are following every track, but there is no need to deny that we have strong suspects going toward that direction, supported by evidences which we are still evaluating. Personally, I would not be surprised to find it out that the Frumentarii are indeed responsible for such a brutal act. It is in their style. But if that's so, than this time they have far surpassed the thin red line between what we would allow them to do, and what not." Very strong words, even when considering that Director Al Mawsili is known for her anti-Eurasian stance. With the Tarajani own domestic political storm temporarily 'frozen' by the events, and the States General standing compact behind a King who has suddenly taken the reins of the situation strongly in his own hands (surprising many; and there is more than one analysts suspecting that behind his moves may lie a not-so-hidden attempt at setting the Grand Pensionary apart) the clash between the two most powerful and secretive intelligence organizations of the world may be not far from escalating.

    Public mourning in Aloia


    Halfmoon Bay, New Brighton, a center of Kiwi Aloian culture.

    HALFMOON BAY, New Brighton -- Aloians are taking to the streets and public squares in major cities all over the Empire to mourn New Zealand President Naveen Garagen. The leader enjoyed unusually high approval ratings throughout Aloia, as we've seen Aloian public opinion and foreign policy shift in favor of the Kingdom's southern neighbor. The display of mourning is especially large in New Brighton, one of Aloia's island city-states, just off the coast of New Zealand. Just earlier this year, Aloia and New Zealand renegotiated Aloia's 99-year lease over the island. New Brighton has strong historic ties to New Zealand, and in fact, their locals have a dialect much closer to a Kiwi accent than to any other dialects spoken throughout the Aloian dominions.

    Aloia's Minister of Defense Jeff Olofson and Foreign Minister Ward Cassidy were both present at the conference. Both ministers and their staff were held at the palace and questioned with the other attendees. Upon being released, Minister Cassidy said, "We join the world in deeply mourning the loss of President Garagen. He was a man of principle, a man of integrity."

    Chancellor John Mark Nelson also spoke from Zumbrota today. Early in Chancellor Nelson's term, Aloia and New Zealand butted heads over the Blukon crisis. The Chancellor's language today was charitable and respectful, not reflecting that hard history. "Over the years, President Garagen and I built a strong and productive relationship. The world has lost a strong leader and a principled man. We commit our forces and all the resources at our disposal to helping our allies find the people responsible for this atrocity. When those responsible have been identified, they will be held accountable and punished."

    The Kiwi populations in Aloia's other major cities, especially Minneapolis, Georgiou, and San Francisco, all also held memorial events in their cities.

    UKZ OBSERVES ONE WEEK OF NATIONAL MOURNING

    Parliament observes a minute of silence in remembrance of the former kiwi president

    The government declared the UKZ will observe a week-long period of mourning during which all flags (save the royal standard) will fly at half-mast and Christmas lights at parliament, the prime minister's office and residence, the queen's residence and the provost's residence will be turned off. This is done in remembrance of the former Kiwi President, Mr Naveen Garagen (a zack by ethnicity) under whose administration New-Zeleand the UKZ enjoyed the closest and strongest of diplomatic relations.

    The Prime Minister who was in New Trajan for the OMNI summit gave out a press statement through which he conveyed his personal shock and grief as well as the condolences of his government, the royal family and the Zack People.
    "On behalf of the Her Majesty and her family, Her Majesty's Government and the people of the UKZ I would like to extend my most sincere and heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Mr Garagen, and the government and people of New Zealand who undoubtedly feel the loss of a charismatic and able leader. Under Mr Garagen's leadership, the UKZ and New Zealand benefited greatly from strong ties of friendship and cooperation. He also enjoyed great favour with Her Majesty and all our politicians, opposition and ruling benches alike.
    There is no doubt that we will be extending all zack help in the investigation in order to bring the perpetrators to justice. We completely support the decision of OMNI to go ahead with the schedule as we need to send a message that nothing can shake our resolve."


    The Prime Minister did not take any questions but the foreign minister (who flew back from the OMNI meeting to answer and update parliament) was asked about what she thought the role of Frumentarii, she said, "The Frumentarii has always been shrouded in controversy. The stories about them are far from favourable and the UKZ is very concerned about the gross human rights violations they commit. However, it is easy to get carried away in times like these and lay blame on anyone. We will not lay any blame on them till it is 100% certain. We have made a huge step in re-establishing diplomatic ties with Eurasia and relations between us are still tender. We do not need unestablished claims and accusations ruining these relations."

    The opposition, however, has called out the government for establishing ties with Eurasia and accused them of shielding a known international war criminal in order to shield their own political interests and career. They have been online polls which show the Congress' approval ratings are quickly dropping after this incident.

    The government has once again provided enhanced security around the recently inaugurated Eurasian embassy. One Maiorist Temple was attacked with stones in Scotland. The home minister of Scotland said that they will not stand for such hate crimes against fellow Zacks or any nationality. No one is hurt or harmed.

    Garagen's Killer Cuts Deal With SIS



    Former President Naveen Garagen's killer has today been transported to a black site under the protection of the NZ Marshal Service. Obviously as it is a black site we have no idea as to where it is but it is likely that this black site is operated by one of the NZ secret services, either the NZDF Military Intelligence Directorate (MID) or the NZ Strategic Intelligence Service (SIS). President Cranson today confirmed in a press statement from New Tarajan, where the OMNI conference is still taking place, that the "apprehended agent who operated in conjunction with the Eurasian Frumentarii has been transported earlier today under the protection of our highly skilled federal marshal service to a highly secure and top secret government black site. While many around the world have called for a public trial and prosecution of the offender, likely resulting in a death penalty exclusive to those convicted under the foreign espionage act, in the interests of national security and global allied interests the decision was made to prosecute the defendant in a closed doors military court chaired by undisclosed chief justices and persons of relevance from New-Zealand. In the end the tribunal found the defendant guilty on one count of first degree murder, one count of foreign espionage resulting in the death of persons of exceptional significance. She was however found not guilty on the counts of perverting the course of justice and acts of a terrorist nature. I can now go on to confirm that she has been placed in protective custody and has since cut a deal with our secret services, cooperating with investigators and providing intel of a valuable nature to OMNI forces. I can not go into any details further than listing her as a Frumentarii associate, though many of you will have already guessed she is female by the court transport photos circulated by media these past few days. I also seek to reassure the public that justice has taken it's course though many of you may not see it that way, as her intel will serve an extremely important role in taking down the infamous eurasian organisation in the months to come. With regards to the diplomatic implications of this, we are yet to see how the Eurasian Empire responds to our allegations, no doubt they will deny and attempt to prevent the furtherance of the investigation. However I can assure you that we have the best personnel from all walks of the OMNI joint forces working closely to ensure the protection and furtherance of the intel and in the meantime we will continue to uphold and bolster our closed borders policy with Eurasia that has remained in force since the failed invasion attempt. The state of high alert shall remain in force and our brave men and women of the NZDF will continue to persevere in protecting our lands, freedoms and peoples with their regular patrols of the border and heavy naval presence. We expect to see some increased activity from our allies in OMNI as they too have taken a keen interest in the proceedings."


    Shortly following the press release Garagen's widowed wife of 3 children Elaena Valentina de Vergara, chairwoman of the Eden Initiative and 7th in line for the Arveyrean throne, released a supporting statement stating that the Garagen family believe the chosen course of action to be the most appropriate and that they understand and accept that the value of such intel would outweigh the call for immediate retribution. She even went on to close with "Nothing would have satisfied him more than to know that even in death he could deal yet another blow to the Eurasian Empire".

    LEAKED DOCUMENTS SHOW FRUMENTARII INVOLVEMENT IN GARAGEN ASSASSINATION
    Top Secret documents from Ministry of the Realm show assassination was ordered by Eurasia; Imperial Palace releases statement


    Spokesman for the Ministry of the Realm Alfonsius Decius Secundus addressing the press corps.

    A bombshell development in the ongoing controversy surrounding the death of former New-Zealand President Naveem Garagen, leaked documents show definitively that the Eurasian Government was directly involved. According to the information obtained by the Julium Times, the Ministry of the Realm directed Stephen Miller-Smith, a New-Zealand citizen, to poison Mr. Garagen as he left a private speaking event earlier this month. The Imperial Palace has released a statement on the affair, calling the assassination "unfortunate."

    The Ministry documents detail how Mr. Miller-Smith was to receive a modified umbrella, which contained a small compressed air mechanism which launched a small pellet containing ricin. He was to then take this umbrella and approach Mr. Garagen after his speech, shooting him in the thigh with the small device and feigning as if he had dropped his umbrella. New-Zealander authorities have confirmed that Mr. Garagen did indeed succumb to ricin poisoning. Ricin is one of the most fatal poisons known to mankind, and an amount the size of a teaspoon could kill thousands. Mr. Garagen was dosed with enough to kill over 200 men.

    Mr. Miller-Smith was arrested by New-Zealander intelligence services shortly after the assassination, and has been under interrogation for several weeks now. The New-Zealander Foreign Ministry claimed that Mr. Miller-Smith cooperated with authorities in return for leniency in his sentencing, and that he confirmed that he acted at the behest of the Eurasian Government. Imperial sources roundly denied these claims, calling them variously outlandish, deranged, and "utter hogwash." However, the attitude's of the Imperial Government have changed significantly since the revelation of the leaked documents; a spokesman for the Ministry of the Realm said "[w]e can confirm the veracity of these leaked documents; Eurasia did participate in the assassination of an international war criminal who committed great crimes against the Empire."

    His Imperial Majesty's spokesmen offered commentary as well, saying "His Imperial Majesty was not aware of the operation until the final preceding days, and is pleased to see it has come to the rightful conclusion." They went on to state "Mr. Garagen's assassination is not a tragedy; today is a moment to rejoice. A traitor to his people, a mass murderer, an oppressor, and a war criminal has been meted justice thanks to the valiant efforts of the Ministry of the Realm. So too was he felled by one of the very citizens whose lives he ruled tyrannically for many years. Jupiter smiles."

    NEW TARAJAN REACTS TO EURASIAN GUILT ADMISSION
    Grand Pensionary De Witte-Beulen announces retaliation

    Astana.
    "The recent statements by the Eurasian Empire are worrysome. Not simply because they reveal a complete disrespect for human lives, which is wrong by itself, but also because they show the most complete disregard of any civilized norm of international behavior." With this strong words Grand Pensionary De Witte-Beulen opened his speech at Palace Van Telmar-Sigmaringen-Hurris, where the States General had been convened in order to report the results of the emergency meeting of the Royal Council held yesterday night at the Royal Palace, and chaired by the King himself. The meeting had been called after the last statements coming from Eurasia, admitting Julium's guilt in the murder of former New-Zealand president Naveen Garagen at the OMNI Summit of Astana last year.
    "This government, under the auspices of His Royal Majesty, cannot stand silent in front of a country claiming an exclusive right at dispensing justice at will. As such, we have no choice but to retaliate against what is, under all points of view, an act of aggression against an ally of this Kingdom." the Grand Pensionary said.

    The above-mentioned retaliation will consist in a series of heavy economic and financial sanctions, combined with the expulsion of all diplomatic personnel of Eurasia from the Kingdom, except for a few  members of consulate staff, who will remain in New Tarajan in order to oversee the bureaucratic procedures necessary for the repatriation of all Eurasian citizens (the third measure to be adopted by the government); after that, they will also leave the country.
    All these measures, already discussed and approved by the Council, will be enacted as soon as the States General will give their approval, which would be hardly a surprise: outrage for Eurasian statements have been widespread among Tarajani public opinion, and even inside the Landsraad, though most vigorous among the Eastern Major Houses. Mass protests have already been organized in front of the Eurasian embassy in Astana, and many other consulates around the Kingdom, though they kept their peaceful nature and were strictly controlled by the police.
    The Grand Pensionary wished to underline that "we do not subscribe to any act of violence against the innocents. For these reasons, we will protect every Eurasian citizens until their repatriation. However, our resolve cannot be stronger to stand up against any further violation of international and human laws." he said, adding that "the only way for Eurasia to get out of this situation, is to publically apologize. But this is something the New-Zealand government and people should decide, not us."
    Asked about the possibility of a military solution, the Grand Pensionary was adamantine: "This is an issue that can be discussed by our allies inside the OMNI alliance, not outside it. We have no intention of starting a war, but we will defend ourselves and our allies against any further aggression."
    No comment came from the Royal Palace. King Friederick Wilhelm is known for his relatively good relations with Emperor Augustus, and rumors say that the personal involvement of the Eurasian sovereign in the murder has been perceived by the Royal House as a betrayal of a very personal nature. A position shared, in some way, by the whole Kingdom: for a country which made a great deal of effort in order to normalize relations with its Cold War-rival for decades, this last development is a sudden, and unwelcome, wake up call. The consequences of waking up the Tarajani lion, however, may not be pleasant.

    My My Cranson! Whatever Shall We Do? 

    National Front Leader Joan Borgia

    If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that nobody expected eurasian admission of guilt to come this easy. New-Zealand was having a right merry old time talking big game and throwing around it's newly found military strength but all it took was one bold speech by the Eurasian emperor to blow our bravado right open and call our bluff in front of the whole world. It's been a whole 27 hours now since Eurasia admitted to the world that they killed our greatest leader in modern history in an act of unashamed brutality at an OMNI conference none the less, and what do we have to show for it? A speech from Cranson promising to build a Garagen Memorial in the national mall between the Lenin monument and the capitol building. A speech condemning the actions of Eurasia as if they've ever cared to listen to what we had to say or even possess an ounce of shame and decorum. A speech pandering to the eurasian residents of New-Zealand, promising not to deport or in any way discriminate against those legally residing as citizens and permanent residents of our fine land. "You are New-Zealanders" he said, "nobody can or will ever take that from you, and most definitely not in the name of Garagen" he said, "he would've never allowed it and neither will I" he said, as if they very Eurasian who killed Garagen in cold blood was not a "New-Zealander" in his eyes. Well I tell you this, all I'm hearing is a lot of nothing, a whole lot of Eurasian pandering and appeasement in the face of the evil empire. Well I tell you now, they've knocked on our doors before and we answered, Garagen answered, and we showed those warmongers their place, sending them back to that backwater communist dump they call home. This time though it's not just Garagen and his militia answering that door, it's the most powerful economy in the known universe and the full brunt of our state of the art, behemoth of a military. So why is it that where we once boldly answered, we now cower behind the couch and under the beds, hiding behind economic sanctions and fancy speeches while the emperor laughs himself to sleep, feasting on the demise of democracy and freedom, knowing he can spit in the face of the entire developed world and we're all to scared to do anything about it. Are we happy with that? I for one can wholeheartedly say no. I say we take our military, we gather our allies, and we march right through Eurasia to the doors of the tyrannical emperors room and parade him, defeated and humiliated through the captured streets of his beloved empire. It's your ship Cranson and you're our captain, but heed these words; We the people wont stand for your pussyfooting much longer. You're our commander in chief and it's about time you followed the footsteps of Lenin, Jefferson, Garagen and showed our enemies we aren't to be messed with. If you won't, we will. 

    (The above was a opinion piece by Joan Borgia, leader of the far-right minority federal party National Front) 


    The Fire's Been Lit

    Protest in Grand Haven

    It's hard to say if this was the Eurasian plan all along, but the very fibre of our social democracy is unravelling. Hundreds of thousands have taken to the streets in protest, some resulting in violence and property damage, as public outrage at the Eurasian admission of guilt and the Social Democracy's perceived lack of action in response. Tensions came to a head as far right anti eurasian protesters collided violently with far left anti-racism counter protesters outside an Eurasian place of worship in Milton. The conflict resulted in the death of 13, hundreds injured, and even more arrested as the police struggled to regain control of the situation. As night set, the situation only worsened with remaining protesters turning violent and rioting through the streets of our cities, with 2 days passed and still no direct action taken against the Eurasian administration by the Social Democracy. Many protestors have taken to wearing face masks of Garagen, Jefferson and other New-Zealand national legends as they protest in their name and vision. Revered Minister of Defence, former High Commander of the NZDF and one of Garagen's closest friends Coral Shepard took to the masses releasing a televised speech and appearing in person at the Grand Haven protest to call for calm and unity. She pleaded with the public to stand together and not let Eurasia tear us apart but while the call resulted in the end of most violent and destructive protests, those at night still raged strong. Peaceful protests on the other hand and grown in size with nearly 600,000 appearing at a sit in at the national mall outside capitol hill today, protesting Cranson's leadership and calling for immediate action. It seems the fire has truly been lit, with the angry masses calling for retribution, and unless Cranson gives it some outward direction it threatens to burn our very nation down. Joan Borgia has been a pivotal feature in stoking the fire, using public anger as momentum to fuel her political aspirations, making no show of hiding her ambitions to take control of New-Zealand and throw all we have at Eurasia. Cranson however is not so bold, perhaps worried that outright conflict would result in the deaths of many and the destruction of years of growth and progress, rightfully so. But in this case, maybe outright conflict would be the lesser of two evils, as inaction could result in the implosion of our proud nation. Inside reports suggest that Cranson is now approaching all his allies to see if he can muster up enough support to take military action against Eurasia without the promise of eventual defeat. The great war was supposed to be the largest to ever occur, and the war to end all wars, but it seems we're teetering ever so close to the void. While I can only pray Eurasia hasn't succeeded in dragging the world down into a second great war, one that would dwarf the first, it looks like we may only be days away from diving head first into the dark abyss that waits.

    TROUBLESOME RUMBLINGS FROM THE IMPERIAL DEEP
    Sources indicate the Empire may be preparing for war.


    Blurry photograph of a military convoy spotted in Mosa Trajectum early this morning. The photographer was stopped by police shortly after taking the photograph and ordered to delete it.

    Editor's Note: It has been the tradition of this publication to bring its readers the most scathing, intrepid investigative journalism for over 600 years. While the Editorial Board has the utmost respect for the Empire and His Imperial Majesty, we do not shy away from publishing the truth. Just as Jupiter commands we obey our Emperor, for his word is the law and the law is sacred, Minerva commands us to be intelligent and informed, and Juno decries we must never back down from challenging times. Despite the sensitive nature of the information contained in this article, and despite the tenuous situation of international affairs, the Editorial Board has decided this ancient paper would be remiss if we did not live up to the traditions of our forebears and publish. Long live the Emperor, long live the Empire.

    It was only twenty-seven hours ago that the Imperial Government confirmed to all that former President Naveem Garagen, of New Zealand, was assassinated by Imperial agents. Since that shocking admission, the world has descended into chaos. The Eurasian Diplomatic Legation has been expelled from New Tarajan, and civil unrest has broken out across New Zealand, whose president seems frozen by the news. The stock market in Julium is rising and falling dramatically, so much so that the Bureau of Investment Trade has closed the markets, for the first time since the Invasion of New Zealand half a decade ago. Across the Empire, crowds have gathered cheering the news of Mr. Garagen's assassination. Radical voices in the Senate, such as that of Sen. Donaldus Trumplius (O), of Mosa Trajectum, have called for a Declaration of War against New Zealand, which was met with shouting. A fistfight even broke out on the Senate floor. Many are now asking themselves and the gods, is our Empire going to war?

    Those living near the border with New Zealand may have noticed that, since the news broke, a significant number of policemen have arrived in the area. The Ministry of the Police has stated that this is only to secure it in the event of hostile New Zealander actions, but some have questioned the veracity of this assertion. More troubling, and the cause of the editorial reticence behind the publication of this story, is that the Imperial Military appears to be mobilizing. Reservists are being called up, legionaries on leave are being ordered to return to their bases. Workers in Misriah, Traxus Heavy Industries, and EuroTech have been ordered to their posts for round-the-clock production. Late into the night, aircraft can be seen flying in-and-out of secure military bases and fortresses. Armored convoys are criss-crossing the hinterlands and cities of Eurasia, late at night, heavily armed. More police have been seen at government buildings, and the number of Praetorian Guards surrounding the Julian Palace has nearly tripled. It has also been rumored that His Imperial Majesty the Emperor has left Julium, as have the Ministers of the Privy Council.

    Requests for comment to the Ministries of War, of the Realm, of the Police, and of Diplomacy have all received the same response, "[w]e stand ready to hold the bulwark," a quotation of the response Cephorus I's legionaries gave when, nearly defeated early in the Interregnum, he asked if they could hold the walls so the civilians could escape. Such a cryptic response is highly abnormal for the Ministries, and has caused many observers to fear that war may soon be upon the world again. Requests for comment from the Montessi and Duresia governments have stated that they will act to honor their treaties for mutual defense with Eurasia if war is to break out. However, some academic observers have stated that they are unsure if Eurasia will be the first to act, or will wait until they are acted upon. In either case, the seeds for another world war have been sown, and it appears the United Nations is, again, powerless to stop it.

    We Eurasians are no strangers to such occurrences. The labyrinthine bureaucracy of the Ministry of War is secretive and covert. The Empire does not share much about its operations, and we discover even less. Eurasians are accustomed to oddly-timed military convoys and soldiers milling about, to strange military aircraft slipping through the sky. Yet, even the most jaded amongst us knows the signs of war; we are a proud, warlike people, and we can feel bellicosity rising in our national mood, coming to a boil at a slow, yet unstoppable pace. For 2,000 years Eurasians have proudly waged war against the enemies of our Empire and of our Emperor, for the gods decree we do no less in their honor. If we are to go to war, Eurasia will stand mightily against whatever waves of torment assail our immovable shores. We leave you with a quote from the Divine Cephorus I,

    "The will of the gods shall be done. I do not enjoy war, but if it be their will I shall bear the burden. I shall make the heavens tremble in their honor, that the mighty shall fall before their feet and pray for pardon. They shall learn once again to fear the site of the Imperial banner. Stat Fortuna imperium.

    King Frédéric IV Issues Stern Warning to Global Community

    Bravil, Marquette -- Amid impending military escalation, Marquetien King Frédéric IV urged the nations of the world to consider the economic disaster that would be brought about in the event of a war. "While we find it regrettable that any head of state should be assassinated, it is imperative to maintain the relatively peaceful world order that has begun to flourish in the last half-decade. As a gesture of our dedication to peace, we would like to invite the involved parties to sit down in talks in order to come to a diplomatic solution to the crisis."

    Following the king's statement, Sultan Rahul Aji Mathur Raghavan XXIV of Debarrat offered to host said summit in the Debarrati capital of Bangon, which is conveniently situated near both Arveyres and New-Zealand. The remaining four members of the Marquetien Commonwealth - Martono, Sartoveo, Presccia, Zaporzhinia, and Fjolskaar - have all reiterated their intention to remain neutral in the case of the outbreak of war. That being said, a commonwealth-wide military exercise went ahead as planned in the northern reaches of Zaporzhinia, and military leaders have stated that they will be deploying to strategic locations within the commonwealth to ensure the security of member states and the safety of maritime trading, which is set to continue as normal.

    The Doge of Presccia, Jehan-Paulo Antoine d'Exe-Grâ, reminded world leaders that the global financial system is still in the process of recovering since the invasion of New-Zealand, and there is a long way to go before stabilization. Additionally, the Board of Directors of the Marquetien Central Bank has convened in Pajara, Marquette for an emergency session to decide what course of action will need to be taken to ensure business as usual if war is declared.

    New-Zealand Finally Responds

    Carrier Group Rho


    Cranson has finally responded to internal pressure, officially setting out the call for full mobilisation and armament of all viable fighting forces, the first of its kind since the invasion 20 years ago. In a perhaps controversial move, Cranson has also recalled Carrier Group Rho, the only carrier group based in and around East Ireland back towards the mainland, leaving only a middling battlegroup consisting of destroyers to defend the semi-autonomous district. Furthermore, Cranson has issued the call for all industries to be ready and able to join the war effort at a minutes notice, primarily through retooling to supply the armed forces with equipment, armaments and whatever else it may require. Full mobilisation also means that all reserve forces are being called into active duty and all able bodied New-Zealanders are being encouraged to join up with local militia's to protect their homes should it be needed, a significant force to be contended with considering New-Zealand has maintained post high school military service in return for tertiary education aid for the last 30 years. Forces have also been deployed in large quantities to strategic locations along the Eurasian-NZ border in preparation for what is to come. Lastly under the Homefront Defence Act of 1998, all police forces are being reoutfitted as MPs and provided with full body armour and military grade rifles, being placed directly under the control of the NZDF while the District Governments of New-Zealand are being temporarily suspended with their duties and power being handed over to the centralised federal government under President Cranson. As the nation is now officially in a state of war readiness, Congress and the Senate have been suspended, any its members are being deposited in secure locations around the nation and its allies with a well established line of succession being published. In the days to come we expect to see an increased presense in the region by New-Zealand's allies as they honour their mutual defence policies in the face of Eurasian aggression. 

    While all info aside from that reported above are classified, there is no doubt that New-Zealand is now in an active state of war, with the nation mobilising in a scale like which has never been seen before. The markets have taken a dive but remain surprisingly optimistic, with many looking to buy into government bonds and anticipating large military supply deals to come. While trading has not yet been closed as it has been in Eurasia, trading has been restricted and placed under a degree of government authority to prevent any drastic crashes.

    Uckustinian Government's Response to Impending War Threats


    Ekeliat, (Uckustinian Capital City), skyline taken by drone.

    In several responses from high-ranking officials within the Uckustinian (you-kuh-stinian) government, the decision on the matter of whether to remain neutral has not been clearly confirmed. Many on both sides have been displaying their commendation and dissent in the past few days. During a conference in the capital (Ekeliat) with Defense Admin Braed Steirs, he had this to say:
    "While the benefits of winning a war can be ripe for picking, one cannot be sure which side of this conflict will prevail ... It's best not to jump into anything half-cocked."
    High General Mnugeyn Schifer essentially reiterated Steirs' statement with the following:
    "In battle, it most definitely wouldn't be wise to run towards the fighting blinded and deafened ... You must know what lies ahead."
    Councilmen Jorge Luvenki of the Minoi Political Party stated:
    "We obviously don't know who we might side with yet. It's too early to tell, but I'm afraid it must happen soon."
    Conversely, Councilmen Simon Kolma of the Saiet Political Party stated:
    "Why bother ourselves with needless conflict when we could instead sell to the highest bidder a fraction of our vast petroleum supply and still remain rich in our resources. War requires fuel, and we are open for a deal."
    In a publicly released brief statement, Emperor Kylone Supovera had this to say:
    "We are seriously considering our options at this present time. Rest assured, the correct decision will be made for my people, and my nation."

    So far, it's been nearly four hours since any official word has been released related to a decision as of yet, but critics are still skeptical as to whether or not Uckustinia will officially release its' position on the conflict.
