    LOYALISTS RECAPTURE EASTERN TEXANIA


    GALVESTON, Texania -- Texanian Loyalists, supported by a massive Aloian force, have recaptured most of eastern Texania, the area separated from the rest of Texania by New Zealand's northernmost extremity.

    Under the cover of darkness last night, Texanian Loyalist troops, led by President George Moosh himself, crossed the Baltic Sea from Aloia to reclaim their homeland. The attack took rebel forces by surprise, allowing most of them to be captured. The attack confirms Aloian intelligence which suggested the rebel forces are thinly spread across the extensive nation.

    President Moosh and his Government-in-exile are now at work re-establishing their government in Galveston. The Loyalists were heavily supported by Aloian forces, including a large fleet of ships from the Royal Aloian Navy.

    Upon entering the city of Marble Falls, coalition forces were shocked to find that the gravestones of the parents of former Aloian Chancellor Lady Bird (Taylor) Johnson had been destroyed by the Marxists. Chancellor Johnson was raised in Texania but came to Aloia in her 20's. Johnson served as Aloia's Chancellor from 1963 to 1965. In addition to the Taylors' gravestones, other graves all over the country were disturbed. All the people in the graves had some connection to either the old government of Texania or Aloia.

    "These actions by the rebels are detestable and against everything Texania has shown itself to be, throughout their history," Chancellor John Mark Nelson said. "Their previous actions showed their disregard for the living and these actions show their disrespect toward even the dead. We call on all nations to come together for this common cause of preserving human decency in Naskigo."

    Aloian Minister of State Laura Welch's hometown of Fredericksburg, also in East Texania, is still under control by rebel forces and it is uncertain of the affair of her relatives' graves, but it's likely they suffered the same fate.

    The remaining rebel forces appear to be retreating back to West Texania. Is this the beginning of a permanently divided Texania?

    Revolutionary Leader Elected!

    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 Alex-j10

        Late Monday evening in the chambers of The Revolutionary Council, a vote on who would become the Leader of the Young Proletariat took place. After a briefing and a short debate on the floor of the Revolutionary Council building, voting was held 1-0 in favor of the Election of Alex Jones as the first and newest Leader of the Young Proletariat. Several Observers have noted that the role of President is now obsolete in Texania, currently being considered vacant by the legitimate government in Austinia.

        Leader Alex Jones held a press conference later that day regarding the National Conscription laws recently enforced within the nation, regarding that "the people have a duty to the government as well as the government having a duty to the people." The new draft, approved by the Revolutionary Council two days ago, include military males aged 18-24 fit enough for potential combat service, and those not fit enough for combat service into 'Military Factory Work'. Women aged 18-26 have been drafted into military factory work as well, according to the new legislation. The draft also categorizes all men aged 24-34 as 'militia aged', opening up the possibility of paramilitary reserves, one commentator has noted.

        Leader Alex Jones also called for International Condemnation of Aloia, for "breaching the will of the revolution and not respecting the true governments' sovereignty." Also stating that "the Aloian Military and their crony George Moosh have no place in East Texania." Alex Jones called for a national day of mourning for the several hundred revolutionaries killed or captured in East Texania, ordering land defenses to be constructed in strategic locations on the Texanian Coast as well as a border fence along the entire Texanian land border to be constructed to prevent 'treacherous escape.'

    BIRTH OF THE FEDERAL DEMOCRATIC UNION
    First Election and Embassies Establishment





    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 Nuova_10

    The Flag of the Federal Democratic Union of Casavarr,
    composed by the colours of all the Member States flags



    BREAKING NEWS! The last ballots have been registered few minutes ago, providing definitive certainty about the referendum result. The Federal Constitution has been approved with an overwhelming majority of 92% of the voters who yesterday went to the polling stations (around the 91% of the national voters). Today is a great day for all the people living in the countries of the former Varr Confederation: the Federal Democratic Union of Casavarr was born.

    “It was a long path, full of blood, tears and sweat, but we made it eventually, accomplishing something that no one would have ever imagined until very recently. The long history of the Varr people has been a road of never-ending violence and despair, segregation and war, humiliation and deprivation. Sixty-six years ago, we decided to change this infamous route, as we stood for unity instead of separation. We walked through an entire new path, decade after decade, and today is the day when we took revenge on our history and succeeded to grant the future generation peace and prosperity. Strength in Unity, Varri brothers, Orkas o Kseria” commented the left-wing President of the Republic of Casa, Ernst Larsberg, one of the main proposer of the Act of Federation. It is an international agreement signed two years ago by the representatives of the Republics of Casa, Farelia, Iris, Malwa and Orv, all of them already part of the broad economic and military alliance known as the Varr Confederation, founded in 1951. It enforced the creation of a democratically elected Constitutional Assembly, which would have drafted a Federal Constitution aimed to construct a new multi-ethnical nation out of the confederation adherents.

    Yesterday night demonstration, Unification Square, Casavarr City, 4 a.m.

    Together with an expected referendum result, the vote to elect the first President of the Federal Democratic Union brought another less predictable outcome. It is now clear that the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) leader, Wilhelm Johansen, will have to face the battle hardened Liberal-Conservative Party (LCP) candidate, Andrea Nyberg, in a second turn voting next week. Favored by the surveys, which saw him winning the office with a 54% majority, Johansen might have been rather disappointed by the fact he could not reach because of a few thousands of votes the necessary 50% threshold to be elected at the first round. On the other side, Nyberg expressed her satisfaction for the astonishing recovery of 7% points in the last few days: “We have always been confident in our electoral base, in spite of the surveys. Now we shall see, the match is still open”. Her party gained the 43% share of votes, thus emerging as the second political force of the Federal Democratic Union. The chairperson of the Casavarr Green Party (CGP), Walter Bergen, is out of the competition, with a meagre 7%, but still his support is likely to be decisive for the second ballot. Nevertheless, he has been ambiguous until now about who would receive it: “The Green Party will stand for those who are closer to our ideological base”, implying that there might be some serious bargaining already in place to win his consensus. Finally, the right-wing populist Casavarr Freedom Movement, led by Othar Dahl, achieved only the 1% votes and, thus, it will not be represented in Parliament.

    Meanwhile, the Foreign Ministry of the Provisional Government is working tirelessly in order to establish a Casavarr diplomatic representation in foreign countries, which will replace the Varr Confederation embassies. The main lines of foreign policy of the newly established nation is still uncertain, probably depending on the winner of the Presidential elections.

    Government Defeated In Parliament


    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 Theresa-may-pic-pa-878658110

    In one of the first acts as Prime Minister Mary McDonald saw a major policy initiative defeated in Parliament. Sinn Fein, the current ruling party in a coalition government, ran on the idea of giving Wales over to the UKZ citing that keeping it is an unnecessary diplomatic problem. However this may have caused them to not get a majority in Parliament thus having a parliament mostly against this matter. In a vote of 391-319 the Irish Parliament voted against the Welsh Territory Agreement proposed by Prime Minister Mary McDonald, with 10 Sinn Fein MP's breaking away form party lines to vote against it. In a statement to the press the Prime Minister criticized Parliament for opposing the agreement and dismissed the 10 MP's from the government benches putting them in opposition. This brings the Government's majority down to only a majority of 19 seats.

    "This decision by our Parliament saddens me. They have voted to continue a diplomatic row with one of our greatest allies. What saddens me more is the members of my own party that voted against the Welsh Territory Agreement. I, as Party Leader, have suspended them from Government benches and from the party itself. They shall sit in opposition. If members of our own party want to oppose the party then they can sit in opposition. We need a united front if we ever want to get a majority to pursue our ideals."

    The Prime Minister's approval ratings did take a hit sliding from 46% approval and 42% disapproval to 44% approval and 44% disapproval. However the leader of the New Liberal Party has reaffirmed their commitment to the coalition as have 9 out of 12 independents. The commitment of the other 3 independents as this time is still unknown.

    Aside from rejecting the PM's proposals Parliament did pass an act official setting up for another referendum in Wales to happen on November 8th.

    PM on Texania: "...Seems like reckless dictatorship..."


    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 Tmay

    In an interview with RTE News the Prime Minister was asked about her opinion on the recent communist takeover in Texania.

    "Listen Ireland has had it's confrontations with communism and with other dictators. We know dictators when we see them and we know bad governance when we see it. This government in Texania was not elected and is quite possibly a threat to the world. We are not in a state to take up arms against Texania but we will not support Alex Jones or any other leader until there is a fair and free democratic election in Texania. You'll find that things are done better with democracy in the long run. Sometimes it may not seem like that but it is true. Until then Texania seem like reckless dictatorship to me."

    Later in a vote of 400-310 Parliament condemned Texania for "It's current form of governance and way of operating."

    Long Reign The Garagen's - 2017 General Election

    (Left) President Naveen Garagen pictured immediately after his victory speech at the NZFirst HQ, (Right) First Lady Elaena Garagen pictured at one of her campaign rallies earlier this election season, (Below) High Commander Coral Shepard, who campaigned strongly aside President Naveen Garagen this election, openly endorsing him as her and the NZDF's preferred Presidential Candidate. 


    The results of the 2017 General Election are in and President Naveen Garagen has led his NZFirst Party to their 2nd consecutive victory with a tremendous 48.7% of the total votes. This combined with their coalition partner, the historically successful, Labour Party attaining 23.2% of the votes made it a decisive victory for Garagen and his team. Over the course of the past 5 years Garagen has led an extremely eventful government, with the visionary leading changes from day one. Throughout his inaugural term we saw the formation of the 19 Administrative Districts of the Social Democracy, the impressive rebuild and revitalisation of the Defence Forces and, most notably, the formation of the Empire and it's Imperial Territories. Through his next term Garagen has made bold promises, intending to refine Federal Government spending to cut wastage by 50% and fully grow the Empire to benefit the Social Democracy in all it's capabilities. His victory however was soured by the success of the Freedom Party, who attained a 7.3% share, and formed with the sole purpose of opposing the Imperial Movements and restoring free, independant governance to the annexed Imperial Territories. 

    On the other front, First Lady Elaena Garagen tried her hand at kiwi politics this election, opting to run for the position of Governor of Magnolia (The district bordering with Arveyres) as an independent and won in the subsequent election. The victory came as no surprise with the Arveyrean royal being held in extremely high esteem by the general populace as a result of her approachable, kind nature and philanthropic track record. Her landslide victory in the Magnolia District spells great news for the Eden Initiative and Arveyrean-New Zealand relations with the First Lady expected to pave stronger relations with the neighbouring nation of Arveyres using her personal status as a high ranking member of the Arveyrean royalty. It will be interesting to see how the future plays out for the economic rivalry between the Steel Trust and Eden Initiative, with the former basing itself around the Chrysler Group in Detroit and the latter operating in the Magnolia District. It has been made clearly evident in the past that First Lady Elaena Garagen has been a strong supporter and valuable ally of the Eden Initiative, whilst her husband President Naveen Garagen has been a long standing supporter and vocal ally of the Chrysler Group and Steel Trust. 


    The Empire Ticking Along Nicely
    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 Minersdist12

    The highly privatised Imperial Territories seem to be ticking along greatly with the landslide victory of President Garagen, or Emperor Garagen as he is known in the Imperial Territories, providing a strong reassurance to the extremely volatile stock markets of this emerging economy. The economy of the Imperial Territories grew by a solid 73.6% this year after accounting for inflation as a direct result of it being the first year of stable governance in the region. Under the watchful eye of Governor-General Seddon, the Imperial Territories have been heavily privatised, with infrastructure being heavily funded by private organisations intending to work on a for profit basis. The Central Government however is maintaining a close eye to prevent monopolies or unfair hiking of prices for the public. The only major publicly run infrastructure projects in the Imperial Territories are a few key regional general hospitals and the maintenance of the core Imperial Highways, in order to maintain the quality of the Esamir Superhighway Network. For most part civil unrest has been quelled, but the population still maintain an envious anger towards their kiwi overlords, as the Social Democracy and her citizens laud a extremely prosperous high tech economy, solid public welfare, extensive universal healthcare and excessive public spending on somewhat overkill infrastructure projects. Meanwhile the Imperial citizens toil away in mines, factories and low end businesses for the benefit of kiwi corporations. Furthermore recent privatisation means that Imperial citizens are being forced to pay out of pocket for road tolls, medicines, healthcare, education and numerous commodities that they're neighbouring overlords take for granted in luxurious quantities. Governor-General Seddon however has made attempts to pacify the public, with the recently released economic data assuring the population that under kiwi guidance the Imperial Territories are well on the way to a prosperous future. In the recent public address Seddon took to quoting a famous Eurasian proverb, "Urbem Sol wasn't built in a day". 

    In related news, the NZDF has all but pulled out completely from the Imperial Territories, with small contingencies of "Peace Keeping" forces stationed throughout the region in the form of paramilitary police departments. The NZDF has once again been placed at it's usual Status 5 (no threat), once again restored to it's peacetime operations. Military spending however has remained constant, though the funds that would have previously gone to housing and sustaining a mobilised military will now instead be diverted to fast tracking research projects and defence contracts. It seems that with President Garagen at the helm, First Lady Elaena maintaining public relations and Commander Shepard leading the defence forces, the Empire as a whole is here to stay and stronger than ever before. Despite Aloian attempts to discredit and pressure the Empire into collapse, the Trio at the top have ensured that the foundations of the Empire remain set in stone.

    Ministries of State, Defense release scathing report, linking NZ to the collapse of Texania.

    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 Laura-Bush-e1400374108763
    Laura Welch, Aloian Minister of State, grew up in Texania and previously served as the Aloian Ambassador to Texania.

    ZUMBROTA -- The Ministries of State and Defense together released a report on events in southern Naskigo. In it, Minister of State Laura Welch made direct connections between New Zealand's invasion of Blukon and the subsequent destabilization of the region that led to the fall of Texania's government. Welch's report noted that southwestern Naskigo has been a volatile region for centuries, but the report also points out major strides toward lasting peace that were erased by New Zealand's invasion. The fall of Blukon sent refugees fleeing in all directions, overwhelming neighboring countries like Texania, Europa, and Aloia. These disillusioned young men were easily won to the cause of the Young Proletariat.

    Aloia has been intimately involved in the Texania crisis since it started, hosting the Texanian government-in-exile in Zumbrota and providing forces for President George Moosh's counterrevolution. The legitimate Texanian government has re-established their rule over eastern Texania, but have plans to reunite East and West Texania under the democratically elected government. Aloia has also been leading international efforts to pressure New Zealand to abandon their modern imperialism.

    NEW TARAJAN ON ALOIAN STATEMENTS



    Astana.
    "What Aloian authorities stated recently about the link existing between the NZ occupation of Blukon and what happened in Texania is something we, as international community, should think about." These are the words used by Prime Minister Count Carl Van Houden, in a press conference held this morning at the Royal Palace in the aftermath of a private meeting with King Friederick Wilhelm II.
    "Although it cannot be obviously proven a direct link" the Prime Minister said "It is easy to observe that the negative consequences of an invasion, and the consequent political regime created in Blukon, can easily have created the necessary preconditions for what happened next."
    The Prime Minister added that "such a reflection should be an occasion for New-Zealand to think deeply about the status of Blukon inside its political system. Although this could be considered as an NZ domestic issue, the consequences for the whole International Community are clear."
    The Prime Minister also confirmed the actual stance of the Kingdom about Texania: "It's impossible for us to accept as legitimate a regime born out of violence and the elimination of opponents" he said "If the situation in Texania doesn't change, then our position will remain the same."
    Although an meeting of OMNI Enforcer is still underway to discuss a common stance about Texania, New Tarajan expressed since the beginning its opposition to the revolutionary regime established in Austinia, giving full support to the exiled government in Zumbrota, and helping Aloia patrolling the Red Straits.


    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 54ywwo


    But this is also the first time the Tarajani Prime Minister speaks openly about the issue and, more generally, about the Kingdom's foreign affairs since a while.
    The news of a private meeting between the Prime Minister and the King caught many by surprise: for months, it was now believed that a political crisis was unfolding in New Tarajan, driven by a loss of trust of the King in Count Van Houden. Some political analysts even moved forward in predicting an announcement of anticipated elections. Nothing similar happened, however. And today, the private meeting between the two most powerful political figures of New Tarajan seems to open a whole new perspective: it's clear that the Prime Minister has the full trust of the King, maybe regained after a period of uncertainty, maybe not; but, in any case, no anticipated elections have been held. It is now to be seen how this new developments will affect the results of the upcoming october elections.

    New Tarajan Invests In Ireland


    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 Image

    After the passing of the Irish Building Restoration Act which put 32 Billion Euros into restoring historic buildings around the country the Irish Government was approached by the Tarajani Government with a deal to invest 15 Billion Euros taking the total up to 47 Billion Euros instead of 32 Billion. The Tarajani Government said in an email to a government official "We do not request a return from the investment. It's a way to demonstrate the trust of our financial world in the new reforms undertaken by the Irish government. Your success could greatly benefit our activities..." The Prime Minister praised this by saying "We want to thank the Tarajani Government for this massive investment. It brings us much much closer to fully restoring our historic buildings. They are a symbol of national pride, of national tragedy, and of national history. They have stood and withstood many different events: wars, colonization, political collapse; and they keep on lasting. So it is out duty to maintain these buildings. But another thing this investment signals is the international community's faith in Ireland. it may not be all the way where it used to be but I believe we can get there. This will take hard work and that hard work is what this Government is dedicated to. We are preserving our nation's history and we are building towards progress."

    Meanwhile many Sinn Fein top officials have asked the Prime Minister to call for general elections as polls show that if elections are called now Sinn Fein could take a majority of the house. However when asked by the press the Prime Minister had this to say "This Government isn't even 2 months old. We are in a honeymoon phase of our government and the polls are bound to show us with good numbers. If we called elections because of good poll numbers there would be too many elections. However if this does persist or I see massive unpopularity in our Government I will ask His Majesty to call elections."

    Imperial Territories or Corporate Sandbox? 
    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 Kester_people-are-corporations


    With the Social Democracy taking a decidedly more laid back attitude towards governance of the Imperial Territories following the landslide victory of Garagen and his team in the recent election, the Imperial Territories have rapidly developed into a corporate sandbox, with large private corporations controlling everything in the Imperial Territories from the top down to the very water they drink. Leaked documents have shown that the Imperial Territories are home to what the Department of Imperial Management has termed "The Capitalist Test". In brief the Department, through Governor-General Seddon and with the approval of the Social Democractic Parliament, is using the recently acquired Imperial Territories to test the Capitalist Theory, and see if the profit motive free market can truly build a functional nation. The test works out greatly beneficial for the Social Democracy, which will end up having to spend effectively no money on the Imperial Territories, instead opting to let corporations manage and finance the vast majority of the Imperial Territories infrastructure and services. President Garagen revealed in a press conference that under the privatisation plan, the only assets that the Government plans on retaining where those required to maintain a decent public healthcare, regulated public education and competent policing network. However private corporations were encouraged heavily to invest in an alternative healthcare and education industry. As far as major infrastructure, the only infrastructure maintained by the central government would be Imperial Highways 1, 2 and 3, which act as key arteries in the Esamir Superhighway Network which the Social Democracy is obligated and determined to maintain to an exceptional standard. Policing will remain fully government controlled, but prisons are being privatised with contracts already being allocated to the Tarajani SERCO Corporation, who currently operate the Social Democracy's notorious offshore processing centres for illegal aliens and deportees. 

    In related news, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has released a heated response in conjunction with the Defence Forces and Department of Imperial Management, calling the Aloian report both "biased" and "blissfully ignorant of reality". High Commander Coral Shepard in a consequent press statement called the Aloian claims "unfounded hippy nonesense" going on to state that the Invasion of Blukon had merely brought to light a problem that had long since been hidden beneath the surface under a shroud of false leadership and ignorance. She claimed that the issues faced in Texania right now are the result of regional powers refusing to take action against the unrestrained crime, corruption and instability of Blukon and her surrounding nation-states, instead allowing the problem to snowball rapidly into the danger it presents today. By invading Blukon the Defence Forces have effectively cut off the head of the problem and restored order to the immediate Blukon region through unfortunately heavy handed measures. However the invasion of Blukon was a necessity and the only way to prevent the crisis from growing any further, and the only logical way to ensure the situation didn't spiral too far out of control. High Commander Shepard went on to state that the collapse of Texania was ultimately an internal Texanian problem and that as long as the situation remains domestic and has no effect on any foreign parties, Texania should be left to her own means to reach a solution. However, Commander Shepard did warn that should those willing to exploit the Texanian instability like they chose to exploit Blukonian instability (e.g. Piracy syndicates, Criminal Cartels etc.) have any notions of interfering with the operations and national security of the Social Democracy and her territories, that the NZDF was a highly capable, highly equipped and very formidable military with dedicated personnel and strong allies that would stop at no extent to protect the safety and interests of the Social Democracy. Her speech ended with a dire warning to the Criminal Cartels and Piracy Syndicates that the Social Democracy had waged war on in the Blukonian Region, boldly proclaiming "If a criminal organisation so much as touches one kiwi citizen or one kiwi shipment, we'll happily steam roll them into the next century. We did so in Blukon and we'll gladly do it again"

    SILESIA FACING POLITICAL TURNING POINT. OR NOT?
    Incoming elections could cause new political turmoil, analysts warn


    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 20kvsyp


    Theresianstadt.
    Here in the capital city of Silesia, there's an atmosphere of waiting: like the calm before the storm. After two decades and a half of more or less hidden dictatorship, under the leadership of president Gustave Henzel, the country is now facing the first open elections in twenty years.
    The past regime, result of the demise of the Duchy of Silesia, former part of the Duresian Empire which gained independence during the last world war, was carefull in keeping a façade of democratic legitimacy, through the use of elections and referendums. However, everybody knew the truth, both inside and outside the country.
    Now, with Henzel death, the personalistic regime he built is crippling: his political heir, Heinrich Grunden, already prime minister of the country and president in pectore, has been forced to call for presidential elections in order to regain legitimacy among the population. However, this could be just the first sign of the incoming fall of the Silesian regime: the opposition has gathered support around its most prominent leader, the socialist (former communist) Johann Freien, who already had been "guest" of Henzel prisons twice before his exile in the neighbouring country of Riga. His promises of wealth redistribution, industrial nationalization (only attempted by Henzel ten years ago, but then receded in favour of more openess toward foreign firms and industries) and social justice are definitely a threat of the establishment which supported the old regime.
    Thus, while Freien keeps gathering support from the masses, Grunden, with an unprecedented move, make clear overtures to Duke Klemens II Von Hohenzbrock-Schlesien, son and legitimate heir of the former Silesian sovereign, Klemens I, who died in voluntary exile in Duresia, his motherland: "It's time for Silesia to see back at its past, and to find there a solution for the future. The return of the monarchy in Silesia could be one of those solutions." these were the words used by Gruden during one of his speeches to foreign journalists.
    Meanwhile, foreign investors and industrialists are worried that the results of the elections will endanger their position in the country, while turmoil is already spreading, although less then expected, for the moment.
    The northern neighbours of Silesia, also, have expressed their concerns about the possible consequences of the elections: they fear the rise of Freien, who could further destabilize, through his politics, the region; but they don't like the alternative of an aggressive regime (Henzel never masked his attempts at subregional hegemony) eventually supported by Duresia.

    ASHAR TROOPS ON SILESIAN BORDER
    PM Van Aardenne-Gliefen to visit the country

    Port Hammad.
    The news has been confirmed this evening, when a spokesperson of the Ashari government said that "In order to secure the protection of our borders and the safety of our citizens, troops of the Ashari National Guard have been deployed at the border with the Republic of Silesia." The spokesperson stated that "such movements does not have any hostile meaning" but "it is our duty to safeguard the lives and interests of our citizens."
    The move comes after the incoming elections in Silesia, the first in two decades not to be openly piloted by the regime: with the risk of a rising to power of the socialist party led by Johann Freier, who promises a complete nationalization of Silesian infrastructures and resources, New Tarajan, and Ashar in particular, are looking to the situation with concern.
    Until now, however, with the Kingdom involved in its own elections, nothing was done or said. Now, the election of new Prime Minister Duke Van Aardenne-Gliefen, paves the way for a clear stance of the Kingdom about the issue. Although from Astana no official statement has come yet, the Tarajani Prime Minister, after having officially received his appointment by King Friederick Wilhelm II, is already flying to Port Hammad, the Ashari capital, in his first official visit outside New Tarajan proper. Here, he will meet Sultan Abdulhamid V and Prime Minister Hyen Labi, and there are no doubts that the Silesian issue will be on the table. It's highly possible that, during his visit in Ashar, the Tarajani Prime Minister will announce the official stance of the Kingdom about the whole issue. A stance which could change the cards: New Tarajan, although traditionally a power in the region, has always been careful not to touch the balance of power there.
    Actually there're almost five thousands Ashari citizens in Silesia, as temporary workers or residents, and almost one thousand Tarajani citizens, and Tarajani industrial and financial firms have built a considerable amount of assets during the previous regime. And it's very difficult to imagine that the Ashari government took the decision of deploying its national guard without the consent, at least an informal one, of the federal government in Astana.

    BIOTERRORIST ATTACK IN PAESTUM CONFIRMED
    Ministry of Health enacts cordon sanitaire in city proper; seven confirmed dead.

    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 Hazmat-military
    Two Urban Legionaries as the cordon was established, attempting to pacify a crowd.

    In the early morning hours of October 24th, Ernst Van Holden stepped off a plane in Concordia and headed into the city. In forty-eight hours, he and seven others would be dead. Fleeing from authorities in New Tarajan in connection with an anti-abortion bombing, he stowed away upon a Tarajani plane and absconded to Eurasia, likely with the ultimate goal of reaching a neutral state such as Marquette. Van Holden became febrile within hours of arriving, and stepped into the Municipal Hospital No. 8 in the city proper. He was prescribed antibiotics and left before it was realized by the Eurasian authorities he was illegal and undocumented. Within hours, his attending physician, Dr. Liliana Sandrinia, was febrile and ill, and shortly thereafter so was her boyfriend. The two were dead within twenty-four hours. Van Holden was eventually located, ill and dying, in the home of his uncle and aunt, by the Provincial Police. He died shortly thereafter, and his family became ill as well. It was unknown how many had been exposed after Van Holden left the hospital, and thus what the Ministry of Health established a cordon sanitaire, or a large, impenetrable are guarded by the police, around city region six.

    The cordon sanitaire, a controversial and misunderstood means of containing an infectious outbreak, is rarely used in industrialized, modern nations thanks to the pervasive efforts of national healthcare systems. It functions as a means to prevent a non-airborne outbreak from spreading, cutting off a section of a city or area from the rest of the uninfected world until the virus can be stopped, or until all inside die and the virus dies for lack of host material. They have proven effective, if difficult to stomach, in the third and undeveloped world, but their usage in modern civilized nations is polemic and rare. Their institution thereof in Paestum is indicative of the degree of seriousness with which this outbreak should be dealt. Thus far, the Ministry of Health has said the cordon will remain in effect for 48 hours until the virus inside abates, as all known infectees are currently residing in isolation at Municipal Hospital No. 8.

    The Ministry did release a statement on the matter, with Dr. Victor Numinius Trebius, the current head of the cordon, and Urban Tribune Alexander Castilianus Flabianus heading the press conference. Trebius said "Due to the outbreak of an extremely virulent pathogen in the sixth region of the city proper, a cordon sanitaire has been established to halt the spread of the virus therefrom. Though we recognize that many maintain loved ones, some of whom may be trapped within the cordon, there can be no weakness nor slackening on our behalf. The virus is a danger to all of the Empire, and it must be contained herein if we are to prevent a massive and lethal pandemic from spreading globally. The virus itself is believed to be a modified strain of the H7N2 avian influenza virus, designed to be massively fatal and highly pathogenic. Further, it appears that it was carried into the country by a Tarajani expat, Ernst Van Holden, who we now believe was likely to be associated with the Army of God attacks in the Tarajani Kingdom, and who likely infected himself with this virus in an act of bioterrorism to strike at our Empire. Investigations therewith are ongoing, yet we believe that this virus was intended to spread rapidly and kill as many as possible, and it was only thanks to the efforts of the valiant officers of the Concordia Urban Cohorts and the staff of the Municipal Hospital No. 8 that a crisis of even greater scope and magnitude was averted. The cordon will remain in effect until the virus either abates inside without our intervention, or we are able to effect a cure or vaccine which can lessen its scope and subdue its wrath."

    Tribune Flabianus then spoke on behalf of the Urban Cohorts of Concordia, saying "In order to ensure that the the cordon remains in effect and unbreached, guards have been posted along the walls and areas blocked by the cordon. No further entry or egress will be permitted. Those who attempt to leave the cordon will be fired upon by police forces in order to prevent the escape of the virus. Those who enter, either purposefully or by accident, will not be permitted to leave. It must be reiterated that the virus is not airborne, and thus poses no danger to the public unless them come into contact with bodily fluids directly. Those with loved ones inside the cordon are encouraged to make contact with them in order to ascertain if their well-being and whereabouts. The cordon is fore public safety and it must be maintained."

    It remains unknown how many, if any, foreign nationals may be trapped within the cordon, however it is likely there are many Arveyrans in the area, as well as other foreigners who came to Paestum either for vacation or for work and travel. The Ministry of Health has promised updates on the situation when the cordon is set to expire in around forty-eight hours.

    NEW TARAJAN OFFERS HELP TO EURASIA ON TERRORIST ATTACK
    PM Van Aardenne-Gliefen call for "joint efforts" against terrorism

    Port Hammad.
    From Ashar, Tarajani Prime Minister Bernhard Van Aardenne-Gliefen held an official press conference from the palace of the sultan about the recent events in the Eurasian province of Paestum: "It's with deep sorrow that we heard of the death caused by a bioterrorist attack in Paestum." he said "And it's a cause for further pain that such a terrible attack has been carried out by a Tarajani citizen. Our thoughts go to the victims of this madness and to those still suffering in Paestum. I can assure everybody that New Tarajan and its citizens have nothing to do with this."
    The Prime Minister also said that "our intelligence has confirmed what Eurasian authorities already said about Ernst Van Holden, his intentions, and his affiliations with the notorious christian terrorist organization labelled Army of God, which is already deemed responsible of bombing against abortist clinics and hospitals and for other kinds of acts of intolerance."
    He continued by stating that "We wish to help Eurasia in such a difficult situation: thus, I officially offer our full assistance, through the deployment of teams of experts specialized in biological warfare and biological hazards and emergencies both from our military and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. If Eurasian authorities will accept our help, we're ready to go even further."
    Also King Friederick Wilhelm II has sent a personal message to Emperor Augustus and the Eurasian population, expressing "his deepest sorrow and sincerest condolences" and reaffirming the friendship of the Tarajani people and government.
    The Center for Disease of Control and Prevention (or CDC for short) is the world-leading institution about any kind of biological hazard. The deployment of its experts in Eurasia could greatly help resolve or at least mitigate the crisis in Paestum.
    "Terrorism cannot be fought by single countries and States" Van Aardenne-Gliefen said: "We need to make joint efforts in order to ensure the safety of all citizens of the world against the darkness of terror."
    Meanwhile, the attack generated a wave of concerns for Tarajani security and intelligence agencies:  the RHIELD, the KID and the KVD have launched a series of investigations about the movements of christian extremist movements inside and outside the Kingdom. Of particular concern is the trial of the 2.567 people arrested in the County of Gravan (whose lord is cousing of the Prime Minister himself) last month after an anti-abortist march turned violent: after the Lordship Court of Heinrichstadt declared all the accused to be guilty, the ball has passed in appeal to the Court of Justice of the Prefecture, which will announce its decision in few days. However, it's difficult that the verdict will be changed: probably, it'll even be stronger, particularly after such an attack.

    NEW TARAJAN AND DURESIA BEGIN TALKS ABOUT SILESIA

    All this is happening while the Prime Minister himself, with the participation of the Ashari government, is involved in talks with the Duresian government about the development of the situation in Silesia.
    While the elections in the country has not yet finished, rising concerns inside Tarajani industrial world and the Ashari government and public opinion about the possible rise of a new government led by socialist Johann Freien have already led Ashar to mobilize its own national guard to the borders shared with Silesia, prompting a visit of Prime Minister Van Aardenne-Gliefen in Port Hammad to personally discuss the issue. Duresia, greatly involved in the issue due to its historical links to Silesia and the overtures made by Prime Minister Heinrich Grunden about a possible restoration of a monarchical regime under Duke Klemens II ver Hoensbroek-Schlesien, have been invited by New Tarajan to talks for a common stance of the two countries, and is represented by Baron Hans ver Broeckdorf, notable businessman and politician. Although no words have yet been spoken, it's possible that an official statement of the two countries will be easily released soon.

    GOVERNMENT ORDERS CESSATION OF OPEN BORDER WITH PAESTUM

    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 Project_IntlBorderXing_PeaceBridge2-e1389637078709-445x146

    The Pons Paesti, a bridge that separates Granada from the Province of Paestum

    TORINO, GRANADA, ARVEYRES == "Under no circumstances can we allow the possible spread of this manually modified avian influenza virus. Many people have countered the government's decision to revoke the open border policy with our sister province, Paestum, due to the many Arveyran citizens who travel to and work in Paestum on a daily basis. However, this is not a time where we can be meticulous with evacuating citizens, we have taken the first step in preventing the possibility of the spread of the virus," as said by Cristina da Navarra, the Prime Minister of Arveyres and leader of the current government. After quick legislation forced its way through the National Senate to close interprovincial borders with the Province of Paestum, the Provincial Government of Arveyres, the government that appeals directly to the Imperia Government, has issued the closure of the interprovincial border. Dissent in the Arveyran wards of the Province of Paestum have since started to gain momentum since this issue.

    Aloian pastor among the quarantined in Paestum

    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 5249c0a2e544b.image
    Marine Anderson is the pastor of St. Vincent's Church in Paestum.


    Erik Aurelius, Archbishop of Uppsala, announced today that Rev. Marine Anderson and her husband are among the people currently quarantined in Paestum as a result of contact with Ernst Van Holden. Anderson is the pastor of St. Vincent's Church, a Lutheran church in Paestum. Anderson has served the congregation since 2009. The congregation is the Church of Aloia's only church in the city and a member of the Southern Mission Diocese, the diocese covering all of Eurasia and New Zealand. Her ministry in Paestum was marked by the establishment of one of the city's largest food pantries and a set of shelters for single mothers.

    Fate had it that she was visiting a member of her congregation in Municipal Hospital 8 the time Van Holden came in to be treated. She began to show early symptoms of the disease and was voluntarily admitted to a quarantine unit in Municipal Hospital 6. Her husband, a retired member of the Aloian military, has also been admitted.

    Anderson's admittance into the hospital has motivated Aloian researchers to join the effort to stop the disease, with the University of Uppsala and the University of Minnesota each sending their top researchers to join the efforts.

    Members of Anderson's congregation and other leaders of Eurasia's tiny Christian community have gathered to pray outside the hospital, in addition to countless native Eurasians who have gathered to honor Rev. Anderson.

    SITUATION INSIDE CORDON EXPOSED
    Man attempting to escape cordon shot by Urban Cohorts; journalist publishes exposé on the situation inside the cordon

    Concordia
    A journalist working online has posted a shocking exposé of the situation inside the Paestum Cordon, showing the world the rapidly deteriorating conditions therein. Inside the cordon itself it the death toll is totally unknown, but it is believed that the virus has escaped from the hospital and is ravaging the area completely unchecked. The Urban Cohorts are reportedly strained to the breaking point handling the crisis, and there are only 11 officers of the Cohorts inside the cordon to police almost 4,000 people. Due to the strict rules of the cordon, which permit neither ingress nor egress, the Cohorts cannot send further officers inside the Cordon to aid the beleaguered officers inside. Further, there have been several escape attempts, the most recent of which resulted in the shooting of a man who refused to return.

    The shooting is merely the culmination of the tensions inside the cordon, according to the recent publication. Inside the cordon itself, the Cohorts are reported to have shot several looters and criminals, and law and order therein are at a severe risk of breaking down. Research into the virus has not yet yielded a cure, but it is reported that the Health Ministry has acknowledged that, thus far, the virus has a near-100% case-fatality rate. However, analysts have weighed in, saying that even despite its highly virulent nature, if the virus is held within the cordon, the lack of a cure will still ensure that all within perish from the virus, which will kill the virus for lack of host material.

    The Urban Cohorts are currently planning to organize a food drop for the residents inside, as rations are expected to run out shortly. Gang activity inside the cordon has spiked immensely, an unavoidable consequence of the sealed nature of the cordon. The situation inside is precariously tenuous, and what happens next will be determined by the actions of those trapped inside.

    EURASIA TO ACCEPT TARAJANI ASSISTANCE
    Ministry of Health to accept the assistance of Tarajani CDC personnel; Health Prime Minister releases statement

    In an unprecedented and unexpected move, the Ministry of Health suddenly announced that it planned to accept the assistance of and work with Tarajani doctors and scientists in an effort to halt the spread and breadth of the virus in Paestum. Despite the usually secretive and clandestine nature of Eurasian internal politics, it appears they have been temporarily cast aside in the interest of protecting the citizens of Paestum and stopping any further spread of the dangerous influenza virus therein.

    The Prime Minister of Health, Sen. Gnaeus Hosidius Geta, held a press conference on the issue, saying "Despite the differences in belief between Eurasia and New Tarajan in the past, it is the belief of this Ministry that these differences must be cast aside if we are to protect the people of the Empire and of the world. IT would be foolish for us to not accept help offered to us, especially when it offered to us by those from whom the virus originated. This bioterrorist was a Tarajani, and whilst obviously the Tarajani Government had nothing to do with the attack, they might have key knowledge relating to the virus, as they might have dealt with it previously. Eurasia will be accepting Tarajani doctors to aid us in preventing the spread of this disease."

    The Imperial Palace also issued a brief written statement, saying "Eurasia thanks the Tarajani Kingdom for their offer of assistance in this regard, and wel look forward to working with them to stop this malady from its further progression." As is characteristic of Urbem Sol in times of crisis, very little has been seen of the Emperor or of the cabinet. Generally, such times as these, the Prime Minister for whom the issue is most pertinent takes the public helm, whilst the Emperor manages issues from behind the scenes. Eurasians should take heart in knowing that Urbem Sol has not taken a proactive approach in handling the situation directly, as if or when they do it will be indicative of the situation reaching near-catastrophic levels.

    SILESIA VOTED TO CHANGE
    Elections results: socialist victory. Turmoil in the capital.


    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 2e4zp85

    Theresianstadt.
    After weeks of uncertainty about the political future of Silesia, finally the election results have been released. And they mark a significant change: the SPS (Sozialdemokratische Partei Schlesien), led by Johann Freien, won with a slight majority of 49%, against the 47% reached by the NPS (Nationalen Partei Schlesien), heir of the previous regime and led by former Prime Minister Heinrich Grunden.
    "This is a time of change for our beloved country" Freien said soon after the release of the election results: "Today we celebrate the victory of the people. Tomorrow, we will create a whole new Silesia: by the people, for the people."
    Freien already announced that his first steps as President of the Silesian republic will be the eradication of all remnants of the former dictatorial regime imposed for decades by President Gustave Henzel: fight against corruption; nationalization of strategic industries; prosecution of key members of the former regime.
    Grunden, who also proposed the re-establishment of the monarchical regime (led by a cadet branch of the Duresian royal house) existing in Silesia before Henzel's coup d'état, has not released any comment. Indeed, no news have come on his actual location, while the announcement of socialist victory have spread fear in the financial markets.
    Meanwhile, turmoil erupted in the capital city of Theresianstadt, where Freien supporters have attacked the homes of infamous Henzel's collaborators. Foreigners have been attacked as well, and they've been warned not to leave their accomodations until calm could be re-established.

    Morean Sultan Visits Marquetien Capital

    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 DwRgole

    Two years ago, Chancellor Joseph Charpentier -- upon entering his second term -- and King Frederic IV of Marquette suddenly shifted foreign policy to bring the nation back to self-sufficiency and near-total isolationism. After two years of what the state has dubbed, "controlled stabilization of Society," the nation has finally reopened its borders to allies and its many multinational corporations are back in operation. All Marquetien trading indexes (BES, Inde 50, FRT, BIO) have recorded record gains in their first few hours of trading.  

    To celebrate the re-emergence of the Marquetien economy, His Majesty Sultan Ioannis IX Kallergis has been invited to the Iris Palace in Besancon to discuss the future of Marquette and Morea.

    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 Grand+Duke+Grand+Duchess+Luxembourg+Visit+kUN-P9c6BI3l

    This meeting is particularly surprising to many political analysts who would not have expected the Marquetien re-emergence for at least four years, when the final term of Joseph Charpentier would end. Nevertheless, the head of state and head of government have both been seen in public briefings by officers of the Bureaux and members of Parliament, something the public has rarely been able to witness.

    This sudden re-introduction of transparency in the Marquetien government has surprised many, and some are dubious about the motives behind this. During the period of isolationism, they were never totally closed off to Arveyres, Eurasia, or Duresia, but the relationship between them is unclear. Marquette spends copious amounts of money on its military, and what it lacks in manpower, it makes up for in firepower.

    Imperial Villa, Virconium
    The royals of three of the worlds most powerful nations are meeting today in the countryside of Virconium, Eurasia, for an unannounced summit. The Ministry of Imperial Relations in Eurasia only announced that the summit would be taking place several days ago, displacing what would have been the Emperor's visit to Mosa Trajectum. The choice of location for the summit is also curious, as the Virconian Imperial residence is notoriously secluded, located high in the Tarentine Mountains. It is unknown what will be on the agenda for the meeting, nor is it known why the meeting was called in such a hurry.

    Heinrik of Duresia and His Imperial Majesty are not unknown to call seemingly random summits together, however the inclusion of the Marquettian King in this latest is a curious development. It appears to coincide with Marquette's return to the international sphere. In a standard action by the Imperial Household, cameras and the press will not be permitted at the summit, and any information that is released will be done so by the respective press bureaus of each monarch.

    CLASH AT NZ-EURASIA BORDER CROSSING

    A policeman watches the crowd as a protester is detained behind him.

    Bruttium, Eurasia
    Several have been arrested and dozens have been injured following a clash between Kiwi citizens and Eurasian border patrol legionaries earlier today, the worst of its kind yet to occur. Beginning at around 11:00 today, crowds began massing at the usually loosely-policed customs exchange, protesting what was perceived as a lack of Eurasian support for New-Zealands controversial actions in Blukon. The crowds began to grow unruly around 2:00, forcing the Eurasian police to bring in reinforcements.

    Around 5:00 PM, the crowds pushed through the hastily erected barricades and stormed the Eurasian side of the border, forcing the Eurasian police to fire teargas. Riot control methods were introduced, and the crowd was eventually pacified by midnight. Dozens of protesters were arrested and detained by the police, and multitudes more were injured by the use of teargas or other crowd control methods. No casualties have been reported.

    This incident marks a bizarre shift in Kiwi-Eurasian relations, as until only recently the two possessed warm diplomatic ties. However, it is now believed that due to New-Zealand's attempts to reinvent its foreign policy towards a more imperialist bent, Eurasia has begun to distance itself. It is unknown how this incident will affect relations in the future, but it has been seen that the border has been bolstered with additional military contingents.

    NEW TARAJAN WARNS SILESIAN GOVERNMENT
    "Infringement of private sector freedoms will not be tolerated"

    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 24kvyn6

    Astana.
    In the wake of the recent elections in Silesia, which saw the fall of the previous establishment still linked to the regime of former president Henzel, New Tarajan finally released an official statement about its stance regarding the delicate situation: "The atmosphere in Silesia is tense, and we can understand why." Prime Minister Van Aardenne-Gliefen said in a press conference: "Our main concern is about the safety of the lives and properties of the foreigners living in Silesia. We will not tolerate any infringement of private sector freedoms by anybody."
    The reference is to the nationalization of key industrial sector, clearly promoted by the victorious Sozialdemokratische Partei Schlesien led by Johann Freien. A move which would endanger the position of foreign industries in the country, favoured until now by the previous regime. The Tarajani financial and manufacturing sector is worried, and a meeting of the International Business Group, held few days ago in Eindhoven, made it clear: "Freedom must be respected, by any government which claims legitimacy." said the official statement released by the IBG.
    While the Tarajani economic world looks with anxiety to Silesia, the government couldn't stay silent. The words of PM Van Aardenne-Gliefen are a clear warning to the new Silesian government; a warning even more threatening after the negotiations conducted directly by the Prime Minister with a Duresian delegation during his visit in Ashar. New Tarajan never made a mystery that it would've seen a restoration of the former Silesian monarchy, under a branch of the Duresian royal house, as the best solution for the tensions in the country.
    Also, Astana has to ease the concerns of the Ashari government, neighbour of Silesia, about the safety of its citizens. The sultanate already deployed its national guard to the borders as a preventive measure.
    Meanwhile, in Silesia tensions are mounting, with clashes reported between SPS supporters and partisans of the Nationalen Partei Schlesien of former Prime Minister Heinrich Grunden. Many old supporters of the past regime and members of the elite have left the country: not incidentally, they have found refuge in Port Hammad, the Ashari capital, and few of them are going to reach Astana soon.
    The first true challenge in the foreign field for Van Aardenne-Gliefen has just begun.

    BREAKING: EURASIAN NAVAL VESSEL SUNK IN GRAND HAVEN HARBOR
    Hundreds of sailors reported dead; cause of sinking "likely hostile", reports Ministry of War

    BREAKING
    The HIM Paventia, a Eurasian battlecruiser commissioned in 2010, has sank in the waters near the Grand Haven Harbor in New Zealand, according to numerous news outlets and the Eurasian Ministry of War. The ship suffered a massive explosion in what appears to be its midsection, near what is believed to be the aft magazine of ships of that classification. The explosion reportedly caused the back of the ship to break, and it is believed to have sunk in only three minutes. There are thus far only four reported survivors of the entire ships crew, all of whom were on the far ends of the stern or bow and were thrown into the water by the force of the explosion.

    The Ministry of War has stated that they believe the ship to have been sunk by "state entities," but have not commented as to by whom they believe this act was perpetrated. Moreover, the Emperor and the Prime Minister of War have not released individual statements on the matter, but are expected to later tonight or tomorrow. The Imperial Navy has ordered a battlegroup to the region at full steam, and it is expected that further military mustering will occur as the Empire prepares to find those responsible for this. No comment has been received thus far from any representative of the Kiwi Government, nor is it known whether assistance has been offered in an official capacity to the sailors rescued from the sunken ship.

    Sightings of warships belonging to the Duresian Navy have been reported in Ausona, Eurasia today, the ships heading west towards New Zealand are rumored to be a response to the Eurasian ship HIM Paventia being sunk in Grand Harbour. The Duresian authorities have been contacted by the media to comment on the navy heading towards New Zealand but no response was given to the media. The Duresian Empire is known for expressing disgust with the actions that New Zealand commited in Blukon and anexation of the nation.

    Marquetien Expeditionary Force Sent to Arveyres

    Marquetien troops arriving in Avila

    The Marquetien military has been given the approval to despatch an expeditionary force of 7,000 soldiers to Avila, Arveyres. This comes as the government of the isolationist country adopts a new foreign policy which stresses foreign involvement and freer trade. Marquette has historical close ties with Duresia, Arveyres, and Eurasia, so coordinated efforts are not uncommon, and the expeditionary force will likely primarily provide air support and fill administrative duties.

    ARVEYRES-NZ BORDER CLOSED
    ARVEYRANS CRITICIZE OPERATIONS IN THE BLUKON


    Esamir International News Network - Page 14 Highway%20Los%20Angeles%20PA%20EPA%20Armando%20Arorizo%20620

    The Esamir Superhighway coming from NZ (due north) into Arveyres (due south) to be closed within the upcoming hours, all traffic ordered to stay in the country they are currently in. All traffic will cease to be allowed on to the highway 2 hours before the intended closure.

    ARVEYRES-NZ BORDER NEAR AVILA, SALAMANCA == Following the approval of the stationing of Marquetien troops in Avila, the Government in Bogota has ordered that the border along the former Magnoline Republic (a self-governing territory of Arveyres from 1013 until 1936 when it gained its independence and then in 1947 it was controversially annexed by New Zealand) be returned to a "non-porous border", starting with the blocking of the Esamir Superhighway with routes entering and exiting New Zealand.

    This move has been met with some controversy and skepticism, with some citizens criticizing the Government for putting a halt on international commerce that goes through the Superhighway, with the government responding with "there are other routes, definitely not through New Zealand"; others support the Government in its efforts to ostracize the nation that invaded and conquered the former Blukon. Many citizens speculate an upcoming armed conflict between New Zealand and Arveyres over the operations in the Blukon.

    BREAKING: POSSIBLE INVASION OF NEW-ZEALAND
    Kiwi media, government, report Eurasian forces crossing border; detonations reported in several border cities.

    BREAKING
    Sources within New-Zealand are reporting the presence of Eurasian military forces inside New-Zealand. Pictures sent from New-Zealand show what appears to be Eurasian legionary paratroopers dropping inside Kiwi territory, as well as landings by Eurasian and other hitherto unknown forces along the eastern beaches of New-Zealand, as well as massive troop crossings on the Kiwi-Eurasian border. In the north of the country incursions have been reported as well, with the forces suspected as being Eurasian and other still unknown foreign troops.

    Casualty numbers thus far are unknown, but it is believed that Eurasian forces have been firing on Kiwi defenders, though there have been scattered reports of defections amongst Kiwi defenders, citing the cruelty of the so-called Imperial regime. It is worthy of note that none of these claims can be verified, as currently all communications into and out of New-Zealand are being jammed and blocked, likely by Eurasian forces. No word yet has been received from the Emperor of Eurasia nor from the Prime Minister nor President of New-Zealand as to what is occurring, but it is likely that the Kiwis, many of whom are war-weary from a disastrous conflict in Texania and Blukon, will be unlikely to match the martial prowess of the Eurasian Legions, especially if the latter are fighting alongside hitherto unknown forces.

    UPDATE
    It has been confirmed that New-Zealand is currently under invasion by military forces of the Empire of Eurasia. Several Eurasia legions, which were unknown to have mustered and massed along the borders, launched surprise attacks early this morning from several locations in the Asticus Peninsula and in the continental provinces. Large casualties amongst the unprepared Kiwi defenders have been reported, and it is believed that the Kiwis are struggling to muster any form of defense, as the majority of New Zealand's military is stationed far in the north in the newly conquered territories. Simultaneous invasions have been reported in the far west of the country, as well as in the north. It is unknown by whom these invasions are occurring.

    The Ministry of War and the Emperor have not released any statement on the invasion, and it is unknown when they will. Further bulletins as events warrant.
