New Edom, officially known as the Allied States of New Edom, is a nation that was once part of the Cornellian Empire. For the last 15 years it has struggled with civil war for territorial, religious and political reasons.

Map of New Edom with Borders

New Edom is a very religious nation, overwhelmingly Christian, with two predominant churches having influence over the government and laws: the New Edomite Apostolic Church and the End Times Church.

The official languages are English and Baran, (a Semitic language related to Hebrew) German, Dawarf, Elwe and Haranese (a sub-dialect of Baran) are also spoken.

Anthem
1. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty,
God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

2. Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,
casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

3. Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,
though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see,
only thou art holy; there is none beside thee,
perfect in power, in love and purity.

4. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name, in earth and sky and sea.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty,
God in three persons, blessed Trinity.

The Cornellian Empire formed out of several Latin-speaking states and consciously modeled itself on the Roman imperium. The nucleus of it was the Late Roman Empire, a Christian East Roman colony founded by Belisarius, which in the 15th century began a policy of "incorporating other lands" around it into a larger umbrella empire composed of a main territory, several adjacent protectorates, and a growing number of client-states.

At the height of its power, it covered the vast majority of the region of Cornellia, including both continents, and the territory that now comprises such nations as Cinya, Gavinium, Kazakia, Nordkreussen, New Edom, Wielkilas, Wolfmanne, Draconia, Megazone, Schleischer, Cookish States, Mount Angel, and Menassa.

Futile and expensive wars of aggression against Riemaia and Tartarus revealed the first cracks in the edifice, and this was followed by an internal religious war between the predominant Christian faith and certain religious dissenters, notably including the Society of Light and Justice. This was a quasi-Manichean faith that grew among the legions and sailors during the futile wars of aggression against Riemaia and Tartarus. Unlike the Manicheans, the Society believed that true good was justice and true evil was injustice. They condemned the Church as evil and corrupt, as well as the State.

The revolt of 1809 produced a rival Emperor in Aelius Jacobus and led to a seven-year civil war. After Jacobus was defeated and slain, his daughter Sophia became Princess of Gavinium Magnus, a new state composed of the last stronghold of the rebellion. This was in 1816 and the new country existed for 4 years, before the Cornellian Empire attempted to quash it. Three years of failure later and a treaty was signed between them, granting the principality client status. This was the beginning of the last era of the Cornellian system.

A series of other revolts, starting before this time with the Cookish States and continuing with more Cookish and Draconian uprisings, led to a great number of massacres, atrocities, and costly wars to put down such rebellions. These were never fully repressed nor ended.

The rising taxes and demands for troops also affected states like New Edom, triggering discontent as the need for more manpower and tribute to put down other uprisings led to resentment there.

Persecutions of pagans, heretics, Jews, etc. increased the civil and military unrest, as the government began running large debts and making them up by seizing properties of dissidents and "apostates", both in the provinces and autonomous states. Increasingly, client-states were treated like provinces themselves, except without the benefit of citizenship. Socii were hanged for the slightest acts of defiance to their Cornellian overlords.

The Empire's totalitarian drifted reached its darkest moment when Tiberius Gallus took the throne in 1850. He burned and hanged more heretics, pagans, and dissidents than all previous Emperors put together. The result was a backlash and violent revolutions in even such normally peaceable client-states as Mount Angel. The judicial murder of King Josiah I for his outspoken protest at this policy galvanized the New Edomite people behind his successor, Queen Adah I, who staged a rebellion out of the province of Haran against the Empire.

With aid from Riemaia, Tartartus, and other states, such client-states and provinces as Draconia, Cookish States, New Edom, Mount Angel, and Menassa broke away at last. Constant warfare by a fanatical Emperor could not bring them back. During Adah I's reign she annexed the Imperial Provinces of Etruria Majora and Gloria Regis.

In the end, Tiberius Gallus became morose and depressed, and he hanged himself. It was said that at the end, he could hear the screams of his victims as they burnt at the stake. In an irony of sorts, because of his suicide, the fanatically pious monarch was denied a Christian burial and the Senate of Constantinople damned his memory.

His successor then signed a series of peace treaties, reluctantly accepting the inevitable. The Cornellian Empire was exhausted, broke, and bled dry of manpower for a generation. It had no choice but to fall. The Late Roman Empire proved to be much more practical rump and has survived to this day, though not without its share of crises. Detente with the other successor states has begun and has reached progress faster with some than others.

History of the Civil War of New Edom
In 1999, Lieutenant-General Prince Mark Obed had claimed the title of King following the death of his father Josiah II, and was popular in this role until it became clear that labour and economic reforms would not take place. Socialist and communist influence in the country had established a desire for trade unions, particularly in dangerous work such as mining and logging. During this time protests plagued the cities of New Edom, as well as protests by the National Legislature, which Mark closed down in 2001 when there was argument about his use of military force against Elwe protests and in the Protectorate of Abermark.. While a victory was obtained in Raith Immel Province (the hub of Elwe resistance) complete failure in Abermark hugely damaged Mark Obed’s credibility with the armed forces when New Edomite forces, surrounded and unable to be relieved, were cut off by Greymark’s army, navy and air force. (note: Greymark was a nation claiming the province of Abermark, which successfully pushed out New Edomite forces by 2005. Relations are currently cool; Greymark has no bearing presently on the current conflict)

Protests for greater workers’ rights and freedoms in Lookinghaven, Glasstower, Harbourtown and Sterry became riots in the face of oppressive police and military tactics and were eventually supported by members of the armed forces and national legislature resulted in civil war. This conflict went on for approximately four years during which the city of Glasstower (held by rebel General Adam Nicanor) was leveled, Harbourtown (held by rebels) besieged, and the province of Haran (held by rebels) rising entirely in uprising.

In an unusual measure due to threats of foreign interests taking over the country an armistice took place between William Touchstone, the leader of the rebelling Free Congress, and King Mark Obed, which invited in Foreign Peacekeepers to help establish a treaty. Under this aegis Vici Minerva attempted to invade New Edom resulting in the Peace Conference ending in a hasty peace that unified the country under a coalition government. Not long after this King Mark was killed in a plane crash in Raith Immel, believed to be one of the first actions leading up to the 3rd Elwe Uprising, still ongoing. The grief stricken Crown Prince David took the throne but left much of the command of the nation to President Touchstone. However this difficult period had brought New Edom into close relations with the nations of Helladria, Ali-Zebu Union, Ossurwald, Lamoni, Inutoland, Riemaia, Marcheria, and Estovakiva.


More recently the struggles of New Edom have included dealing with the Manifesto of Liberty, which involved radical leftists, student groups and unionists protesting in the streets as a result of several Council Police arrests, and which resulted ultimately in greater liberalization of the country. In Raith Immel the Elwe Independence Organization continued to agitate and stage insurgency style attacks until harsh measures by then Defense Minister Admiral Charles Rand became harsh enough that he has recently been accused of genocide by the International Criminal Court.

Tensions between the two leading factions of government built and have finally exploded in a coup d'etat begun by Admiral Charles Rand in the city of Fineberg. A bomb went off at the President's hunting lodge at Ysbaddenfach, apparently killing him, his Vice-President, the Chiefs of the Military Staff and various Defense and Foreign Affairs advisers. While several government ministers were secured by the people attempting the coup, the Attorney-General and Undersecretary of Foreign Affairs managed to hold out with the aid of loyalist militia until troops loyal to the Free Congress arrived in Fineberg. The Foreign Minister was away at this time and has been proclaimed Acting President, while the King of the Allied States has declared that Admiral Rand is his acting Minister of Defense. And so civil war has begun.

The main areas of conflict are as follows:

1. East Bara. East Bara is the hub of the Allied States; much of the leadership and direction of industry and government are there, including ammunition factories, fuel refineries, communication and transport centers and power supply in general. The Free Congress currently holds the capital city of Fineberg, has besieged the Silver River Air Force Base and holds the border areas up to Raith Immel and Haran. Several militia organizations led by End Times Church Elders are either helping defend Fineberg or are acting as partisans and insurgency groups throughout the province.
2. Haran is the strongest Free Congress Province, held largely due to the absolute charismatic rule of Governor Augrim, a native Haranese belonging to the Political Party the Sons of the Dragon. The militia are overwhelmingly loyal to him. Pockets of anti-Free Congress resistance (possibly militia groups hostile to the Sons of the Dragon, possibly foreign special forces) are operating in the area. It is also the designated point of arrival for foreign forces supporting the Free Congress. It is the site of an important Air Force Base and a Naval Air Station.
3. Harbourtown is the second largest city in New Edom and is a hub of industry, particularly oil refinement. It is a target for capture by the Free Congress Fleet, but that fleet is currently outnumbered thanks to the arrival of the Riemaian Imperial Navy supporting the Monarchists. A force of 15,000 Marine Infantry have set out from Harbourtown to recapture Fineberg.
4. Padan-Aran is the hub of Monarchist activity, the home of the estate of the Regent Prince James Obed. From Padan-Aran the First Mechanized Infantry Division has launched an assault to capture Fineberg supporting a pincer movement by the Third Marine Division. (see above)
5. Etruria Majora is a province which has long been a source of tension regarding parts of it being claimed and occupied by the Kingdom of Nordkruessen. Forces in this province are neutral at the moment only because the internal political divisions are held at bay by fears of what would happen if there were not large forces concentrated around a demilitarized zone on the northern border.
6. Raith Immel, New Edom’s wildest and least populated province, is occupied by small regular forces, Nalayan allied forces and Elwe tribal militia groups, notably the Red Branch, Black Branch, Green Branch and the White Thorns.

1. Destruction of the President’s hunting lodge at Ysbaddenfach due to a bomb; death of President, Vice-President, Minister of Defense, Chiefs of Military Staff, Permanent Undersecretary of Foreign Affairs and other senior officials presumed.
2. Admiral Charles Rand appointed Minister of Defense by the King. Ruled unconstitutional by leading Free Congress leaders; their attempted arrests result in outbreak of violence in the capital.
3. Declaration of allegiance for the Admiral by significant numbers of the armed forces and by certain provincial governments. The result of this is a simultaneous declaration of allegiance for the Free Congress by other military leaders and provincial leaders.
4. Detainment of leading members of the cabinet including the Ministers of Environment, Education, Health, Oil and Resources and Transport by Admiral Rand ‘for their own safety’. Their whereabouts are currently unknown.
5. Foreign Minister Sif Finnhald, at an economic summit in the Late Roman Empire, is declared Acting President by means of her cabinet seniority. She is invited to meet with leaders from Lamoni, the Shrailleeni Empire, Nalaya, Ganos Lao, Adiron and the Late Roman Empire aboard the Lamonian flagship Patria.
6. Attempts to besiege the Palace of Justice , Stonehaven (Council Police HQ) and Foreign Ministry in Fineberg result in a two day standoff as Marine Infantry attempt to storm the buildings but are resisted by militia groups and armed members of government. Police Minister Kohath captured but loyal Council Police forces led by General Sidney Harcourt capture the building itself, resulting in a standoff.
7. Brigadier-General Perrin Pahath-Moab, the first senior officer to declare allegiance to the Free Congress openly, launches an attack on Fineberg to relieve the besieged members of government there. An attempt is made to halt the advance of his forces (14th Armoured Cavalry Regiment supported by 5th Fighter Squadron) by the Cavalry Guards and aviators from the Fineberg Naval Air Station result in a defeat of Monarchist Forces.
8. Admiral Rand calls into active service the 12th Infantry Division, a reserve unit in Fineberg. 12th Infantry Division troops clash openly in the streets with End Times Church militia and also arresting a number of Free Congress loyalists.
9. Air forces from Haran clash with Air forces from the Silver River Air Force Base in East Bara; this clash results in a general stalemate.
10. Refusal to obey senior admiralty orders in the largely Monarchist Southern Fleet results in Admiral Button declaring for the Free Congress. Armed clashes aboard several naval ships as mutinies against Monarchist aristocratic officers take place.
11. Marine Infantry storm the Foreign Ministry successfully only to find that several senior officials have escaped including Undersecretary Colleen Fish.
12. 32nd Armoured Cavalry Regiment supported by air units moves across the Haran-Baran border to support the Free Congress.
13. Majestic Hotel and other hotels in Fineberg occupied by 12th Infantry Division troops who are looking for Free Congress supporters.
14. A general declaration by a New Edomite association of businesspeople manages to obtain promises from several leading corporations that have investment in New Edom to keep their operations going. As a result of this several mercenary organizations later enter the country to protect employees and property. (including Ohsung Petroleum, Montana Pharmaceuticals and Thinktronic Inc.)
15. Full mobilization of Monarchist led garrisons at Tyrannis and Phoracos military bases; 3rd Marine Infantry and 1st Mechanized Infantry divisions respectively. They are ordered to advance into East Bara by General Joshua Adams.
16. Humanitarian aid workers from the Cookish States move through the Province of Haran in order to provide for people fleeing the fighting in East Bara. Meeting of government officials in the nation of Mount Angel discuss offering peacekeeping units to protect humanitarian aid workers and refugees in East Bara.
17. General Pahath-Moab’s forces defeat the Marine Infantry Division in a day long battle in North Fineberg. Marines retreat in order to protect the Silver River Air Force Base. Admiral Rand flees Fineberg following entry of 14th Armoured Cavalry (Free Congress) entry into the city. Siege of Palace of Justice and Stonehaven relieved by End Times Church militia.
18. Prince James Obed holds a party in Padan-Aran in order to possibly gain Monarchist supporting allies. Admiral Charles Rand accused by ICC of crimes against humanity; attempts by Free Congress to gain international mediation organizations' support fizzle.
19. Monarchist naval forces led by Vice-Admiral Hannegan are trapped in a minefield by Free Congress naval forces and then attacked by a combined surface and air group at Hareng Bay near the city of Harbourtown. However Imperial Riemaian naval forces arriving to support the Monarchists attack the Free Congress Fleet. Battle of Hareng Bay currently rages.
20. Monarchist forces approaching Fineberg are slowed by militia sabotage attacks and minefields.
21. Free Congress members of the National Legislature advocate the arrest of Monarchist, Communist and Wisdom Party leadership with the support of citizenry and police.
22. Free Congress forces in Fineberg begin preparing for a siege. Negotiations begin in Sixington, Gloria Regis, between Monarchist, Free Congress and Mount Angel envoys concerning use of Mount Angel peacekeepers in East Bara.
23. Late Roman Empire and Nalayan forces begin arriving in New Edom to support the Free Congress; Nalayans in Raith Immel and Late Romans in Haran. Archbishop William Laudner begs both sides to seek further mediation, turning instead to strong nations abroad rather than WA or other international organizations.
24. Norvenian peacekeepers arrive in Fineberg East Bara to begin peacekeeping operations there.[
25. Mediation offered by Empress Gehenna of Tartarus. Following acceptance, meeting takes place in Quelle Palace between delegations of Free Congress and Monarchist leadership.
26. UEF alliance becomes involved in mediation and in peacekeeping, though long delays and bureaucratic dithering results in continuation of the war.
27.Peace agreement signed in Quelle Palace[
28. Following the Peace agreement and appointment of Secretary-General Canopus Fade by agreement of both parties, adoption of constitution, coalition government begins to operate in New Edom, with territorial boundaries maintained./spoiler]
[spoiler=The Free Congress]Leadership
1. William Touchstone, the President of the Free Congress, was apparently assassinated by a bomb attack on his hunting lodge, and is still believed dead.
2. Sif Finnhald, the Foreign Minister, has been declared the Acting President of the Allied States. She was a very successful foreign minister, establishing good relations with a number of countries, and is one of the most charismatic leaders of the Free Congress. Currently she has been abroad gathering support for the cause of the Free Congress.
3. Sarah Carmel, the Attorney-General is governing the Free Congress held territory in Finnhald’s absence. Carmel is very religious, very tough minded and focused.
4. Governor Augrim of Haran is acting Minister of Defense following acceptance by the National Legislature in Fineberg. Armed forces in Haran include militia groups including the elite highly trained Risen which acts as a special forces unit.
5. John Kohath is the Minister of Police, which acts as an intelligence gathering, national security and national police organization.
5. Lieutenant-General Martin Benajah is the commander of Free Congress military forces.
6. Thaddeus Burden, leader of the End Times Church, is Foreign Minister as well as the leader of a number of the militia groups operating in East Bara.

Politics
Representative democratic government (which is free and fair) must be established first and foremost for the equal participation of the people of New Edom.
Equality in that all peoples are deserving of the same treatment, and policies to ensure that treatment must be in place.
Federalism: in that the nation is of utmost importance and must be supported by its citizens. However, national government must be balanced by a three-tier system of provincial and then township control.
Economics
While it encourages pursuit of foreign trade, particularly with allies, it is against domination of the country by agendas of foreign coporations or powers. Our agenda is put our country first. Join alliances but do not join
world bodies that control our legislation. Reinvest in technology, this includes green technology, oil and gas will not be here forever start now in in investing in wind, biodiesel, wave, solar, and nuclear power. The military makes our country strong, especially a future oriented military.

Encourages direct ownership of industries. Put legislation in place that allows profit sharing in corporations. Encourage employee ownership, allow unions and employees the option to buyout failing companies, make it easier for stock shareholders to take control of corporations. Allow for partial government ownership of essential industries, but not full control. Create a national country fund to invest abroad in bonds, stocks, and property. In trade, it believes in putting the country and society first and to aggressively pursue trade with foreign allies.

Education
The party believes the country should make two years of education after high school compulsory either in a college, military service, or trade, and make one year of military service or service to your country compulsory. Considering your countries countries shape, create a public works program to keep people off the breadlines.

Religion and Morality
The Free Congress is in spite of appearance deeply divided on the issue of religion. Roughly 35% of the Party is actually from other political parties amalgamated to prevent a Monarchist landslide in the elections following the armistice. These political parties range from libertarian to green to secular humanist socialist, and have been forced to align with the original Free Congress leadership which is deeply religious. The non-religious want generally for religion to be a purely private matter, though they have different views on how this should be applied. They also want a total reversal of the Morality Act which would entirely secularize New Edomite society, removing religious courts completely and a biblically based legal system.

The Compulsory Nudity act is an odd compromise among them—Adamite practices among the End Times and Haranese Christian Church led to this law being established, but in fact the Anarcho-Naturist movement that has grown among secular Free Congress members strongly supported it.

Environment.
Environmentally, the recommends long range plans for resources for forests, land, and other resources. It also believes it will be necessary to follow a stewardship philosophy in maintaining land.

Allies
1. The Free Republic of Lamoni (one of New Edom’s strongest trading and developing partners. Close ties between leadership on a national level)
2. The Shrailleeni Empire
3. The Protectorate of Nalaya (one of New Edom’s oldest allies. Strong close ties between Free Congress and Nalayan leadership as well as ties of military comradeship.)
4. The Late Roman Empire (a new ally and trading partner largely due to the personal charisma of the acting President Sif Finnhald)
5. The Cookish States (the Cookish States is trying to seem neutral but barely conceals open support for the Free Congress)
6. Adiron (attempting to bring in closer ties, suspecting the Imperium of Arbites, its rival, of supporting the Free Congress)

Leadership
1. King David III is a young man in his late twenties who spends most of his time abroad. He married Princess Selvaria of Riemaia and they have two infant children.
2. Prince James Obed, the King’s paternal uncle is the Regent of New Edom by appointment from King David. He is one of the wealthiest men in New Edom not only by inheritance but by constant investment planning.
3. Prince Philip Tubal-Cain, the King’s maternal uncle, is the principal advisor for Foreign Affairs.
4. Admiral Charles Rand is the appointed Minister of Defense who also led the coup.
5. General Joshua Adams is the Commander-in-Chief of Monarchist forces in New Edom.

Economic views include agreeing with free trade and investment by international corporations as well as national trade. Quality assurance is agreed with. The party believes in use of nationalized utilities on a purely pragmatic basis. A competitive banking system is preferred over a national banking system.

Socially the party is dubious about the importance of gender equality but agrees with racial and age equality. It is conservative where religious involvement in politics is concerned—accepting tax free status of churches but diminishment of political involvement for religious groups.

Regarding civil liberties and political freedoms, the party is very conservative, agreeing with political expression, artistic expression and is strictly one man one woman for life when it comes to marriage. The party believes in keeping the necessity of requiring travel papers to move around internally. Education is preferably free for this party. Strongly repudiates Compulsory Nudity and wants to see an end to the End Times Church and to diminish roles of women in business, politics, religion and in the military.
/spoiler]

[Spoiler=Events of the Edomite Conflict Following the Peace of Quelle]
Following a period of stability and truce as the results of peace negotiations at Quelle Palace in Tartarus, President Touchstone returned to power and abolished the Compulsory Nudity Act. However the damage was done; while a strong devoted following remained in parts of Bara and in Gloria Regis, traditional religious and cultural elements began to rally further under the Monarchy, which was increasingly remembered as a bringer of economic and political stability.

While the Monarchists returned to full power, they lacked absolute control of the countryside, while they did establish control over the larger populated areas. In exchange for the establishment of the Ecotopian Republic of Raith Immel for example the EIO came into full power in Raith Immel but found itself dealing with a strong insurgency in the form of the White Thorns and the Black Branch. In Haran, conservative support against the regime of Augrim the Necromancer resulted in control of Sterry and other large populated areas, but a desert and mountain based insurgency. In Bara and Lookinghaven Province, ETC insurgency remained, based in part out of the stronghold at Glasstower. With the military weakened by foreign expeditions and expenditure of blood in the civil wars, the actual recapture of Glasstower has remained problematic, and it remains a source of insurgency in the country.

With the resignation of King David III, James was crowned James I of New Edom, his daughter Mara became Crown Princess, and a new era would supposedly be ushered in...

In the wake of civil war came warlordism. One of the worst examples of this was the rise of Anarchism in northern Bara Province. Led by a mysterious figure known only as the Hooded Man, they waged war directly upon the populace, particular around and within the city of Glasstower, a small city occupied by Free Congress militia. This and other demonstrations of the inability of the Free Congress and Monarchists to protect the people resulted in a bloodless coup d'etat led by Brigadier-General Perrin Pahath-Moab, who promised to restore order in the country. This resulted in the quiet surrender of the Free Congress, who divided, demoralized and in some cases ailing could see no reason for opposition. The Monarchy agreed to endorse the military government. At the moment, confrontation with the Anarchists and other warlords of New Edom is imminent...

CONSTITUTION
(FUNDAMENTAL LAW)

OF

THE ALLIED STATES OF NEW EDOM

The strength of Federalism was vividly demonstrated by the immortal feat of the Edomite people and their Armed Forces in achieving their historic victory in repelling the invasion of Vici Minerva.

In the ALLIED STATES a developed Federalist society has been built. At this stage, when Federalism is developing on its own foundations, the creative forces of the new system and the advantages of the Federalist way of life are becoming increasingly evident, and all classes of people have been making steady gains. However our nation has been too divided against itself. In the face of foreign confusion, we are at risk of being completely torn apart as a nation.

It is believed that we can be a society in which powerful productive forces and progressive science and culture have been created, in which the well-being of the people is constantly rising, and more and more favourable conditions are being provided for the all-round development of the individual.

It will be society of mature Federalist social relations, in which, on the basis of the drawing together of all classes and social strata and of the juridical and factual equality of all its nations and nationalities and their fraternal co-operation, a new historical community of people has been formed--the Edomite people.
It is a society of high organisational capacity, ideological commitment, and consciousness of the working people, who are patriots and internationalists.

It is a society in which the law of life is concern of all for the good of each and concern of each for the good of all.
It is a society of true democracy, the political system of which ensures effective management of all public affairs, ever more active participation of each State in cooperating with one another, and the combining of citizen's real rights and freedoms with their obligations and responsibility to society.

Developed Federalist society is a natural, logical stage on the road to Christianity. Though not every person in our Allied States is a Christian, we will yet be guided by the Christian principles of cooperation, respect, seeking of wisdom, courage in the face of adversity, charity, faith, hope and love for one another.

The supreme goal af the Edomite state is the building of a Christian society in which there will be public, Christian self-government in cooperation with friendly indigenous and pagan beliefs. The main aims of the people's Federalist state are: to lay the material and technical foundation of Christianity, to perfect Federalist social relations and transform them into Christian relations, to mould the citizen of Christian society, to raise the people's living and cultural standards, to safeguard the country's security, and to further the consolidation of peace and development of international co-operation.
The Edomite people,
• guided by the ideas of Christianity
• relying on the great social, economic, and political gains of Federalism,
• striving for the further development of Federalist democracy,
• taking into account the international position of the ALLIED STATES as part of the world system of Federalism, and conscious of their internationalist responsibility,
• Making the best use of modern economic principles, scientific ideas and diplomatic relations with other nations to achieve our ends
• hereby affirm the principle so the social structure and policy of the ALLIED STATES, and define the rights, freedoms and obligations of citizens, and the principles of the organisation of the Federalist state of the whole people, and its aims, and proclaim these in this Constitution.

Political Parties of the National Legislature

Postby New Edom » Tue Mar 15, 2011 7:07 pm

Political Parties:

The Free Congress
The Free Congress is basically a conglomerate bloc of socialist parties. Controls the National Legislature by a hair, due to a compromise between the following parties:
Party Leader(s): Lina Comhghall
(Character by: Ossurwald http://www.nationstates.net/nation=ossurwald)

Biography: An Anglo-German out of Lookinghaven, Comhghall worked in factories as a young girl. She rose to prominence among her trade union as an outspoken advocate of her budding philosophy of "unionism" and eventually was sent to law school with the support of her union. Emerging as a union lawyer, she was famous for opposing the New Day Party and was arrested. Released when General Obed took power, she immediately opposed him and fled for safety. Since the ceasefire, she has begun attempting to reorganize the disparate bands of the UM, which are mainly centered around Lookinghaven, Harbourtown, and Fineberg. Each local committee of the UM has its own leaders, and they have been slow to support Comhghall.

General Political Views:

Opposes the World Assembly for economic reasons. The Unionist Movement initially was founded as a trade union organization to increase communication between workers. Largely of Anglo-German/Sorgen backgrounds (strongholds in Lookinghaven and Harbourtown), its leaders have found tentative support in Sterry among some Haranese, and oppose Augrim's influence there. Mostly working and middle class, the main political belief of the Unionist Movement is that society must be restructured to end poverty and build a democratic society. The Movement wishes to unleash massive public spending in the wake of any election of their party. Party leader Lina Comhghall has said, "we must build mighty mausoleums to house the bones of the past."

Unionism advocates a few major principles:
Democracy: Representative democratic government (which is free and fair) must be established first and foremost for the equal participation of the people of New Edom.
Equality: that all peoples are deserving of the same treatment, and policies to ensure that treatment must be in place.
Federalism: The nation is of utmost importance and must be supported by its citizens. However, national government must be balanced by a three-tier system of provincial and then township control.
Secularism: That religion should be uninfluenced by the machinations of politics, which can only lead to their mutual corruption.

These principles are largely known as "DEFS" among its members.


Party Leader(s): Dr Krist Antonije Petrović
(Character by:http://liberal.nationstates.net/nation=beinai)
Biography:Dr Krist Antonije Petrović was born into a family in Communist Cezary where his father, Igor, stood up against the dictator, Jakob Beljin, as one of the 1150 'Freedom Fighters', resulting in deportation of the family and slaughter of his father. He was brought up from the age of five in Harbourtown, New Edom, where he worked hard at school, studying politics and sociology obsessively. He graduated with many qualification and entered Uxbridgeley University in Beinai to study Psychology, Politics and Social Science.
After graduation, he worked in Beinai as a Psychologist, earning him the title of Doctor. In 1990, he returned to New Edom to pursue his dream political career. He worked with trade unions, social democrats and small socialist parties throughout. He gained these contacts and by 2011, he was ready to call all contacts together to form a larger party.

Political Views: The party, as a whole seeks no interest in a monarch, nor a religious leader. All party members have great support for the President to be head of state as they feel it's more democratic and direct. It is an eco-socialism party which is softly republican. The policies are liberal to people but slightly harsher on big corporations. It was formed in Harbourtown. Generally there is support for entrance into the World Assembly, semi-national banking and carefully controlled investment.

On equality the party supports universal emancipation.

The party supports freedom of religion but believes that religion should have no place in politics nor should it be tax free.

As far as personal freedoms goes, the party is quite liberal, and believes in free education and travel for citizens.


Party Leader(s): Marcus Cruonis
Author: (Free Commonalities) http://www.nationstates.net/nation=free_commonalities

Bio: Marcus Cruonis is a family man with two children, a wife, and a dog named Spot. He is a division manager of the Undersea Salvage and Recycling Cooperative. Currently, the cooperative is working on collecting recyclables for export, recycling old computer equipment, refurbishing cars and other heavy equipment, and converting older military equipment for civilian use. The Undersea Salvage and Recycling Cooperative has been in operation for over 70 years and is an international cooperative, having many units in a variety of countries.

He strongly believes in green technology. There is a picture of a house he has bought with solar panels on the roof and a small wind turbine. He has gone to many conferences on recycling and has appeared several times on television shows about green technology and recycling.

There is a younger picture of him in in his 30s a book called, Raising the Sea Scorpion about the recovery of a nuclear submarine off the coast of Russ. He has been working with military salvage and recovery with a variety of nations.

Government Policy
The Green Oceans Party generally accepts libertarian, liberal, and Free Commons idea, and does not support membership in the World Assembly.

Economically while it encourages pursuit of foreign trade, particularly with allies, it is against domination of the country by agendas of foreign coporations or powers. Our agenda is put our country first. Join alliances but do not join
world bodies that control our legislation.

The party believes the country should make two years of education after high school compulsory either in a college, military service, or trade, and make one year of military service or service to your country compulsory. Considering your countries countries shape, create a public works program to keep people off the breadlines.

Reinvest in technology, this includes green technology, oil and gas will not be here forever start now in in investing in wind, biodiesel, wave, solar, and nuclear power. The military makes our country strong, especially a future oriented military.

Encourage direct ownership of industries. Put legislation in place that allows profit
sharing in corporations. Encourage employee ownership, allow unions and employees
the option to buyout failing companies, make it easier for stock shareholders to take control of corporations. Allow for partial government ownership of essential industries, but not full control. Create a national country fund to invest abroad in bonds, stocks, and property. In trade, it believes in putting the country and society first and to aggressively pursue trade with foreign allies.

The party believes the country should make two years of education after high school compulsory either in a college, military service, or trade, and make one year of military service or service to your country compulsory. Considering your countries countries shape, create a public works program to keep people off the breadlines.

The party believes that the government should allow religious services in the armed services for specific believers, as well as allow representations of tolerance
in the government sphere. Holidays should be recognized for their religious or historical roots.
There should be an open acknowledgement of separation of church and state and freedom from direct interference by government bodies.

Generally the Oceans Party is fairly agreeable with matters of freedom of expression on all bases and considers marriage of whatever kind to be a private matter as long as human rights are not violated.

Environmentally, the Oceans Party recommends long range plans for resources for forests, land, and other resources. It also believes it will be necessary to follow a stewardship philosophy in maintaining land.

Recently following negotiations with Mr. Touchstone Marcus Cruonis agreed to serve as Vice-President in exchange for uniting his party with the Free Congress.


Minority Parties include the Communist Party, the Peace Party, and the Wisdom Party.

Party Leader(s): James Pice (Character by: Robsonien http://www.nationstates.net/nation=robsonien, Andrea Benjamin

Biography:
James Pice was born 1976, on April 3rd in Lookinghaven, New Edom.

The Peace Movement disagrees with tax free status for churches but supports freedom of religion. It is generally highly liberal with regard to such matters as freedom of expression and freedom to form relationships. It is vehemently opposed to government by any of the three Tribunes.


Party Leader(s):Mark Vergome
Author: (Darmen)http://www.nationstates.net/nation=darmen

Bio: “I was born in Darmen in 1967. My father was from New Edom, while my mother was from Darmen. I went to school at Scott City University, gaining a degree in Political Science. I became a member of the Second Communist Group soon after graduating from college.”
- from the personal memoirs of Mark Vergome.

The Second Communist Group of New Edom will support the King and Archbishop by;

1. Allowing the King to retain his crown should the Second Communist Group take power.
2. Allowing the King to have some limited power in government.
3. Allowing the Archbishop to become a member of Parliament.

Generally the Communists believe in supporting communist and socialist agendas. It’s parent is the Second Communist Group International(Overseeing body of all Second Communist Groups) defines the Second Communist Group as a reformed Marxist Leninist Organization, with strong Christian values.
It supports the World Assembly.

As far as economics goes it supports nationalized trade, emissions control and quality control; it disapproves of free trade and international corporations. While it agrees with competitive banking systems it does so under the structure of a national bank. It supports the right to ownership and inheritance.

The party believes that Religion should be involved in politics:agree(somewhat)Religions should be allowed to have political parties(i.e. Catholic Party) but the Country should not be controled by a single religion/denomination; it supports freedom of religion and tax free status for churches.

Socially with regard to civil liberties and political freedoms it supports total equality for gender and all racies, species and ages. It approves of freedom of artistic and political expression within the bounds of standard Christian values. The party expresses the view that marriage should be between one man and one women, and divorce should only be allowed when one spouse was unfaithful to the other, and that marriage should be between one man and one woman.

The party believes the education should be free or available with fees on a case by case basis, and the right to travel without criminal intent internally and internationally.
Right to ownership and inheritance:agree

The Second Communist Group is currently in Darmen, South Darmen, The Holy Empire of the Holy Forden Church, Berbari, Chuckio, Brham, and Manchukuo


Party Leader(s): Charles Fielder
Author: (Beldonia) http://www.nationstates.net/nation=beldonia

Bio: Charles Fielder was born in Lenahan, Beldonia, the second largest city. He was an exceptional student, attending many of the fine and select schools throughout Western Beldonia. Falling just short of valedictorian, he was accepted into Holmes University, one of the top political science schools in Beldonia. As soon as he became of age, he registered with the Wisdom Party. He graduated Holmes suma cum laude and began working for Donald J. Savage, prominant Wisdom Party member and eventual seceretary of state. Although Savage was at the time no more than a rising star, Fielder helped lay the foundation for his success. After ten years under Savage, Fielder was elected governor of the difficult region of Trainta. With a scattered population of mostly uneducated and tribal people, Fielder was able to promote technology and free education. After a mere term, he was elected Wisdom Party leader. He maintained the ideals that the party stood for and stood strong on each and every issue. After two terms, he stepped down. He cited his reasons as wanting to expand the Wisdom Party to other countries.

He admired King Mark’s “…ability to redeem himself, even after some mistakes. His dedication to the welfare of your people is admirable.”

Support of Archbishop: “His adherence to the bible is excellent. Quietly giving what little he has to improve the livelihood of his fellow man is a great virtue.”

General Political Views

Charles Fielder is generally conservative, and supports membership in the World Assembly.

Economic views include agreeing with free trade and investment by international corporations as well as national trade. Quality assurance is agreed with. The party believes in use of nationalized utilities on a purely pragmatic basis. A competitive banking system is preferred over a national banking system.

Socially the party is dubious about the importance of gender equality but agrees with racial and age equality. It is conservative where religious involvement in politics is concerned—accepting tax free status of churches but ambivalent otherwise.

Regarding civil liberties and political freedoms, the party is very conservative, agreeing with political expression, artistic expression and is strictly one man one woman for life when it comes to marriage. The party believes in keeping the necessity of requiring travel papers to move around internally. Education is preferably free for this party.

Charles Fielder strongly supports both Archbishop Laudner and the Monarchist Party.


Leaders: Rachel Dan-Eden, Naomi Sharon, Fredericka Leyden

Political Platform: The Feminist Party of New Edom wants to abolish the patriarchal order and invites men and women who feel likewise to join in a struggle for real freedom. It puts feminist concerns and issues at the top of the political agenda. It sees the history of the country from the point of view of feminist analysis. The formation of this party was in part due to inspiration by AHSCA's Lesbian Party.

Aims:
- abolish human trafficking
- raise women's salaries
- safety and freedom from violence of all kinds
- examination of discrimination and removal of it from all walks of life
- civil, urban and domestic planning to favor women's needs and conditions
- family allowance and care for women
- encouragement of higher education for women
- encourage humanizing views of LGBT community
- abolition of religious courts

Office of the President of the Allied States of New Edom

Postby New Edom » Tue Mar 15, 2011 7:17 pm

The Executive of the Allied States
The President of the Council of Ministers
Image
Brigadier-General Perrin Pahath-Moab is both one of New Edom's youngest general officers as well as one of the most respected and admired by the people and military alike. Following inability on the part of the Monarchist and Free Congress governments to stabilize the country, he was asked by popular acclamation to take the reins of power in order to restore order. He has reluctantly done this.

General Pahath-Moab is known to be a great lover of music, to be related to the Royal Family (via his aunt, Rebecca, who married the Prince Regent) and to be a man with a great deal of confidence, intelligence and charisma. His chief concerns currently are establishing rule of law, encouraging local economic growth, maintaining good relations with established trading partners and allies, and bringing religious militias into the fold of law enforcement or military discipline.


Office of the President of the Theocratic Republic of New Edom (Free Congress}
The President currently served a six year term following election by the majority party of the National Legislature. The President is required to be a native New Edomite citizen, to have served at least 2 years in the military, to be at least 30 years of age and physically, mentally and spiritually competent. (which is demonstrated by observance of one of New Edom's major churches and demonstration of biblical knowledge.)
Image
Former President William Touchstone

Till recently, the President was William Touchstone. He led the National Legislature during the general strikes that led to rebellion against the government of King Mark Obed, and became President of the Free Congress, successfully gaining the trust and admiration of regular military units and also forming several militias now known as Congressional Militia Legions. Some of these organizations are composed of various religious fanatics. He had shown a brilliant capacity to create coalitions and alliances, and has shown a very strong will but flexible imagination in leading the country. His chief focus had been on improving the quality of government, including lowering unemployment and taxes, improving the quality of services, establishing a national health program, improving police training, gaining better equipment and materiel for the military, raising educational standards and establishing workers' unions.

The President is assisted in his duties of guiding the Cabinet by the Vice-President, who also acts as party leader in the National Legislature. Currently the Vice-President is Marcus Cruonis.

The former President is a lifelong bachelor and while he has had several romances has never settled down with anyone, though he has been connected with a certain Nalayan Admiral not named here. Ailing following his injuries after his last assassination attempt, he has retired to his country house in Lookinghaven Province and is still much admired.

Former President Sif Finnhald
Image

Sif Finnhald is of all things a former professional kickboxer and action movie actress who became a politician purely to challenge a corrupt incumbent and to her amazement won. Her fresh approach and popularity made her, ultimately, the right hand person to William Touchstone, who increasingly valued her advice and outside the box thinking. She is very charismatic and tough. Finnhald is very much committed to representing ordinary people in politics and is a champion of the people. She is well traveled and well respected in foreign circles.

She was briefly head of the Theocratic Republic of New Edom. Following her resignation, she became Director of the National Committee on the Status of Women.

The Monarch of the Kingdom of Edom
Image
His Royal Majesty the King of Edom is David III of the House of Obed. A young man devoted to his country, he is married to the Queen-Consort, former Princess Selvaria of Riemaia.

Image
Prince James Obed is the Regent, and de-facto leader of the Monarchist held region, the Kingdom of Edom. While not as martial as his late brother King Mark I he is intelligent, energetic, and is in many ways believed to be the principal force behind keeping New Edom's economic strength going in spite of nearly six years of constant civil war. He is married to Princess Rebecca of House Pahath-Moab (a New Edomite noble house) and has two children, Princess Mara and Prince Adam.

Ministry of Defense (General Information)

Postby New Edom » Tue Mar 15, 2011 8:48 pm

DEPARTMENT OF NATIONAL DEFENSE
Minister: General Pahath-Moab acts in this capacity himself, but makes much use of a trusted deputy, General Martin Benajah, who is Chief of the General Military Staff.
Image
General Pahath-Moab
Sarah Carmel
Image
The former Attorney-General is a very experienced lawyer, a devoted patriot and loyal member of the Free Congress who courageously put her life on the line before and during the civil war in defiance of those who would subvert the rule of law. During the last Civil War she valiantly stayed at the Palace of Justice while under attack until the majority of her staff were evacuated. She is married to New Edom's foremost conductor and composer, Dr. Stephen Carmel, and has three children.


The late Minister of Defense served in the New Edomite Army, rising to the rank of full Colonel before he lost his lower left arm in the 2nd Elwe Uprising when his air cavalry regiment was evacuating a hot landing zone. After he recovered from his wounds he became a professor of history at the Lookinghaven Academy, a post secondary instutition. Close to the President personally, he acted as a mentor and friend, and was in a sense a second father to Touchstone.
He has a great deal of sympathy for the ordinary soldier though he also believes in hard, tough training and exacting standards. He replaced former Monarchist Charles Rand, New Edom's highest ranking Admiral, during the 3rd Elwe Uprising. He was recently killed in a bombing attack on the President's hunting lodge at Ysbaddenfach

History: New Edom's various cultures (Baran, Elwe, Dawarf, Haranese, Anglo-German, Sorgen) blend together a proud history of warrior service.

Full Dress parade for unification celebrations

There is behind a modern veneer a sense of warlordism in the New Edomite military forces. Senior commanders tend to have a fair bit of political and economic clout where they come from and tend to refer to 'my' divsion or 'my' ship.

Recent developments include complete unification and reintegration of armed services from former Congressional and Monarchist Forces. As well as this women have been fully integrated within combat services.

This has not been without its problems, though since women have been in the armed services since the 1970s the current generation are experiencing fewer of them. Sexual discrimination, sexual harassment and the like are illegal. However some of the basis of problems include the following:
- General acceptance of the view that men and women need separate facilities for the sake of modesty. Some Legislators argue that this reinforces the sexualization of women in the armed forces.
- Lack of encouragement for women to enter elite services and combat infantry. Outside of artillery, engineers, and military police there is a much smaller percentage of women in combat arms. The units which are exceptions (for example the army's air cavalry regiments) are considered experimental.

Issues Regarding Compulsory Nudity Act
All soldiers, sailors and air personnel are required to have access to protective gear and clothing, and it is worn regularly. Exceptions include after lights out in barracks, in classroom time and during calisthenics. As a recent regulation staff duty while attending political leaders, while on certain ceremonial parades and so on military personnel are given body painting which designates rank and dress uniform and are to be in alignment with the law.

Summation
While New Edom's Department of Defense has a long way to go in modernizing, acquisition of new equipment and materiel from such corporations as Lyran Arms, YMG, and Inuto Arms has gone a long way towards improving morale and distracting people from the internal divisions.

Intelligence Operations
Intelligence operations are conducted by the Council Police and by Military Intelligence. Military Intelligence is coordinated by service via a shared command at Department of Defense. It makes use of human intelligence, satellite, electronic intelligence and cyber intelligence. Under instruction from Admiral Charles Rand, the predecessor to John Crowl, the military began hiring experts in the use of electronics, computer technology and internet research. A special secretive corps of cryptologists, analysts and cyber-warriors work day and night in shifts to keep on top of potential threats.

Civil Defense
At the request of the President, the Ministry of Defense has begun a national civil defense project known as Operation Pangolin, which is intended to provide shelters for every home, school, business and place of government. Surpluses thanks to government planning and tax reduction will provide 2 billion NSD for this project. Village and district leaders, business leaders and school and church officials will be Civil Defense Commanders who will be responsible for coordination of civilian safety during emergencies. This project was approved by the National Legislature upon appeal to them by the Minister of Defense. The project having begun has fortified approximately 10% of homes, businesses and local community areas of importance.

Furthermore, road systems in certain areas are to be improved by hardening and support to be used as emergency runways. Modular military and logistics command will be supported by undisclosed bunker locations.

National Paramilitary Coordination

Following intelligence reports by the DoD National Intelligence Service and the Council Police which were gained regarding a summation of a Marshite intelligence report, Minister Crowl required General Abiathar and the Chiefs of Military Staff to come up with a plan to coordinate all paramilitary organizations for defense purposes in the case of a national disaster or invasion. All police, search and rescue, tribal and local militia organizations are going to be required to register with the Department of Defense and to standardize equipment and training, communications and organization. Approximately 3.5 million people would thus become available. Key areas along the A-3 Highway system have been completed.

In addition to this Mr. Crowl has asked Admiral Antaxerxes to review the creation of a merchant marine service.

New Edomite Department of Defense Main Equipment and Materiel.
New Edom holds DPRs to produce nearly all ground defense equipment, 1 corvette, 1 frigate, transport aircraft and AWACs. It has contracts for production with Riemakora (a Riemaian defense corporation that produces cruisers, corvettes and rations used by the New Edomite Department of Defense) LAIX Armaments, VMK Armaments and USSM Military Arms.New Edom also buys extensively from Gemballa, Alliance Armaments, Crookfur, and Lyran Arms.

Strategic Missile Systems
HERMES
Hermes is among Grammaton Aerospace and Atomics' newest developments in military missile technology. The Hermes system is a mobile tactical ballistic missile complex, designed to carry out powerful conventional or nuclear strikes against enemy forces or infrastructure with surgical precision.

It is currently being introduced in the Hypparchian Ground Forces, and is expected to replace some of the existing long-range artillery cannons. The Hermes is an excellent offensive weapon, but can also be very useful in the defensive role.

Lord Augrim of Haran
Image
Augrim had spent most of his earlier life going from city to country to desert, rarely resting in one place more than a year or two. He had done many professions, from working on an oil well out in the Oridan Desert (flat, rocky, hot as a devil's breath) to being on a fishing boat to typing in an office. He was equally at home with squatting over roasted lamb and millet in a tent and chomping on a burger in Sterry. During the previous civil war he heroically led the defense of Sterry in Haran against the Monarchist forces. He proved to be a very good commander and rose to the rank of general in the war. He has been Commander of the Military District of Brightwater, Commander of the Expeditionary Force to Mallarctaia and is currently Governor of Haran. He was made Minister of Defense following the bombing attack on Ysbaddenfach. During the cabinet shuffle, he was removed from his position and made Commander-in-Chief of Operations in Tyrrhenia for the ICE Alliance.[

WHEREAS it has pleased the Most High God, the God of the honorable and just Nations of this Earth upon living, and without, for the glory of Name, and to the well-being of all the Emperors, Kings, Presidents, Rulers, etc. to diffuse the spirit of cooperation between the honorable Empire of Royal Calathonia and the honorable Allied States of New Edom whereof, to bring about a commercial partnership and cooperation between the two Nations thereof, as shall be seen thereof in the eyes of the Lord and his Jesus; and thence, to bring New Edom, out from a state of death, desolation, and devastation, which no mortal Being shall bear to see, having been caused by devastating civil turmoil which impacted its people and its economy henceforth. And that Her Imperial Majesty of Royal Calathonia, seeing thence this devastation, has accorded to cause the formation of a honorable economic Partnership and Alliance, as shall be proper, and to set out such conditions by which the economic Alliance shall thereof be maintained: be it therefore known to all other Royals, to other Kingdoms and Nations, and to the entire World, that under his Divine and caring guidance, the most serene and honorable Empress, Anastasia the Second, by the Grace of God, of the Empire of Royal Calathonia, and the most serene and honorable King, Mark the First, by the Grace of God, of the Allied States (Kingdom) of New Edom, consulting to the advantage of their domains and their subjects, so far as morals are able to do, to bring forth the Alliance, of economic Purposes only, with such stability as the Lord provides for, to thus end the devastation in New Edom there forth. And for insuring the success of such Alliance, and such Partnership, to which is testified in the name of the Prophets of the Lord, his Jesus, and his name to all the nations of this Earth, and from that paternal care which they delight to use towards their own subjects, and the public weal of Christendom, have nominated and appointed the most illustrious and excellent Lords or Ladies their Royal Majesties respective Extraordinary and Plenipotentiaries, viz. her Sacred Imperial Majesty of Royal Calathonia, the Right Honorable Lord Alexander Zane, by the Grace of God, and of her Majesty’s wisdom, Lord and Count of various lands in Royal Calathonia, one of Her Majesty’s Imperial Council of Ministers, Her Majesty’s Imperial Chancellor, a member of the honorable Order of Royals of the Empire, and one of Her Majesty’s close associates and advisors, along with his assistants to wit: their Honorable Lords and Ladies Robert Machfield, Sheryl Lane, and Catherine Jones, all of whom members of the Order of Royals, and of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; and his Sacred Royal Majesty of New Edom, the most Noble, Illustrious, and Excellent Lady Sarah Shalmaneser, one of His Majesty’s primary officials of Diplomacy, Princess of New Edom, a member of the Order of Royals of the Allied States of New Edom, and honorable Ambassador to the realm of the Empire of Royal Calathonia, along with her aides and assistants to wit.

Minister of Finance:General Adam Zelek
Image
Former Director of Procurements for the Ministry of Defense, Commandant of the Military Academy of Lookinghaven, and divisional commander. He is very experienced at negotiation and has had a great deal of involvement with the building of New Edom's economy; indeed because the beginning of the boost of it involved manufacturing arms, he knows about it from the ground up.
Lina Comhghall
Image
Lina Comhghall had spent the last 20 years fighting to ensure that New Edomites have a voice in their own government. Arrested by the New Day Party's corrupt dictatorship, she spent her time in prison fighting against the system that locked New Edomites up for speaking their minds. Freed following the NDP's overthrow by the Monarchist, Ms. Comhghall immediately spoke out against the tyranny of the Obed Regime, leading to attacks on her safety and causing her to go into hiding. It's time to stand up for New Edom. Lina Comhghall understands that freedom must be sacrificed for, and her life is a testament to this value. She was Minister of Education for two years. Currently Ms. Comhghall is attempting to form a New Edomite socialist party.

Dr. Roger Andersen
Image
Dr. Roger Andersen is a political conservative who is a close ally of Mrs. Lindley; he is a former professor of economics from the University of Lookinghaven, member of the National Legislature and has been an adviser to many projects including the Space Development Project, the Skyfarm Project and others. He was Minister of Finance for two years under President Touchstone.

The Royal Bank of New Edom is looking actively for foreign investment; the Free Congress is attempting to set up its own national bank. However the main financial institution of New Edom is the Yohannesische Bundesbank which is one of the largest international banking organizations in the world, and EDEBC Private Banks. In addition to this most corporate entities operating in New Edom have credit unions for employees.

Financial regulations have improved a great deal since the civil war, though New Edom's government is largely a broker in this regard with foreign corporations that provide much of the employment in the cities and towns.

Combining conventional alcohol distillation techniques with sophisticated bioengineering, Designwerks' Ethanol distilleries form the lynchpin of Schultaria Prime's alternative energy backbone. These processing facilities use the most advanced fermentation catalysts in the world, with bacteria that have been genetically tailored to produce Ethanol waste products far faster and more efficiently than older refinement methods. In addition to marked improvements in production volume and speed, Schultarian Ethanol distilleries are completely indiscriminate with fuel source materials. Due to the heartiness of the bacterial catalysts, virtually any form of organic molecule, even products such as waste plastic or spent fuel oil, can be introduced into the system without disruption.

As populations grow, so does the insatiable demand for Iron. Many nations, however, face significant shortages in foundry capacity to produce enough iron to sustain stable economic growth. To address the need for increased refined Iron output, Designwerks has developed a series of export-ready Iron Foundry Facilities - designed with local industry in mind. These facilities have been built to utilize any type of Iron ore and virtually any fuel source to produce a wide variety of iron products - from slag to the most highly refined steel - to satisfy the discerning client. Much in the same spirit as Designwerks' other metals facilities, these Iron foundries are designed to balance productivity and safety while minimizing environmental impact.

As foundries have become evermore intertwined with advanced materials science, the demand for Titanium's incredible strength has erupted. Refining the metal in quantities large enough to meet demand, however, has always been a challenge. With industry clamoring for more refined Titanium than ever before, Designwerks has made one of the most advanced automated foundries devoted solely towards Titanium production. These Schultarian-designed facilities are designed to produce only the highest quality of Titanium through the most efficient means possible, and are capable of producing both pure Titanium and a multitude of hybrid alloys. Much in the same spirit as Designwerks' other metals facilities, these foundries are designed to balance productivity and safety while minimizing impacts towards the environment.

Davoor-Kronsen Nuclear Separation Capsule

Even with the most advanced waste reduction techniques on the planet, the United Socialist States of Schultaria Prime still some 2.78 billion m3 of unrecyclable material every year - most of it as ceramics or glass byproducts from thousands of plasma induction waste facilities. While the national government has passed legislation to find productive uses for Schultaria's ceramic waste in construction and national defense, the Schultarian Scientific Collective has been encouraging research laboratories to convert the nation's steady stream of refuse into useful raw materials. Doctor Kiishik Davoor, a Professor with the University of Schultaria Prime-Grosh'tex, designed a massively upscaled version of the Designweks Calutron Refinement Facility which has shown considerable promise in tackling the nation's waste problems.

By vaporizing materials with high energy electrons, a beam of ions is created that can be deflected by a series of magnetic fields corresponding to particular elemental groups. Through repeated deflections, the beam's matter begins to accumulate in specially designed nuclear separation capsules which, in turn, create pure elemental substances that are magnetically refined and completely reusable for modern industrial processes.

The United Socialist States of Schultaria Prime, with an average population density over 17,000 persons per km2, has found it difficult to manage the ever growing waste problems of its population. Cooperating with The Eldaimovey Advanced Research Laboratories and Drugan Waste Handing Incorporated, Designwerks have helped to design a practical and economical facility as a substitute to burying waste in disaster prone landfills.

Utilizing ionized plasma torches, the waste that is deposited into these facilities are subjected to temperatures approaching 25,000 °C (~ 45,000 °F). This environment causes component atoms within the waste material to form into low temperature plasma which, in turn, cools to create a dark silica glass once the process has been completed. The resulting silica glass is completely inert, encapsulates any toxic remnants from the process within its crystalline lattice, and reduces the total volume of waste to one 1/500th of its original size.

Ministry of Justice

Postby New Edom » Tue Mar 15, 2011 10:47 pm

The Attorney-General: Dr. Uriah Nicanor
Image
Former Ambassador to the World Assembly, Minister of State for Dengali, and Judge-Advocate for Bara Province; he is very highly respected as a legal, diplomatic and educational figure in the Allied States.

Cabinet Officers
Deputy Attorney-General: Peter Misabel
Accuser-General: Rahab Sheba
Inspector-General of Civil Police: Amnon Darmeno

Duties of the Ministry
Overall, the Ministry prosecutes and investigates criminal and other legal matters on behalf of the state. The Deputy-Attorney-General's duty is the administration of the police and investigative structure on a national, provincial/protectorate and municipal level; the Inspector-General deals with police operations as a whole. The Accuser-General's duty is the actual prosecution process.

Duties of the Police

Police in New Edom are responsible to rule of law, and are required to maintain the peace, arrest suspected criminals, provide prison and rehabilitation services, deal with traffic and provide protection for public officials where necessary.

Criminal Activity in New Edom
1. Tax fraud and barter trade. This is the number one concern per sheer amount of money lost by the nation but is unavoidable while large areas of the countryside are more locally than nationally governed.

2. Counterfeit goods. These are largely sold on the black market and end up as part of tourist trade out of the main tourism areas.

3. Guns and weapons. Unfrotunately there is a lack of regulation of sales of these goods, particularly across the Cookish and Nalayan borders. Because there are so many people who have had access to weapons either through manufacture or through military service, this is a rampant problem.

4. Sale of illegal pharmaceuticals. Similar to the gun trade. Again, pharmaceuticals are sold in New Edom legally through manufacture but local economy makes it more tempting to steal them or manufacture them illegally without government oversight.

5. Human trafficking. This is a serious issue, which the new government is only beginning to become aware of. From prostitution to outright slavery to shipments of people overseas.

6. Financial scams and frauds. This has become, unfortunately, popular online and with tourists, and harsh penalties are being planned for it.

7. Illegal logging, mining and petroleum tapping.

8. Poaching of rare animals for meat, eggs, feathers, fur, bones and pet sales.

On paper it seems as though New Edom has few problems with muggings, rape, assault, personal extortion. There are two reasons for this. First of all, most demographers, tourists and other foreigners tend to visit the coastal cities, which tend to be very well policed and relatively safe for foreigners. Second, most of the violent criminals are actually part of warlord groups, corrupt military units or are members of religious militias.

Ministry of the Environment and Agriculture

Postby New Edom » Sun Mar 20, 2011 11:45 am

Minister of the Environment and Agriculture: Dr Krist Antonije Petrović
Image
The Minister was born into a family in Communist Cezary where his father, Igor, stood up against the dictator, Jakob Beljin, as one of the 1150 'Freedom Fighters', resulting in deportation of the family and slaughter of his father. He was brought up from the age of five in Harbourtown, New Edom, where he worked hard at school, studying politics and sociology obsessively. He graduated with many qualification and entered Uxbridgeley University in Beinai to study Psychology, Politics and Social Science.
After graduation, he worked in Beinai as a Psychologist, earning him the title of Doctor. In 1990, he returned to New Edom to pursue his dream political career. He worked with trade unions, social democrats and small socialist parties throughout. He agreed to support William Touchstone and his party joined with the Free Congress. The Minister agreed to serve with the present government in his current post.

Environment Rating by International Standards
New Edom received a B rating according to the Namor People's Rating Department: Eco Friendliness Index. B-rated countries have a high degree of eco-friendliness, however, may have some negative elements. Citizens in B-rated countries drive less, however not as less as those in A-rated countries do. A high percentage of products are recyclable in B-rated countries, and most forests are preserved. B-rated countries are slightly influenced by fossil fuels. Air pollution and water pollution occur in B-rated countries once a year.

Pine forests, deciduous forests and meadowlands cover most of the northern parts of the main island of Edom, and used to cover the island of Fernmag. Some of these are now protected by national law. Leafy plants of various sizes are endemic throughout New Edom.

Difficulties New Edom faces in development of agriculture include the fact that nearly 42% of agriculture in New Edom is done on small farms which are only regulated insofar as local officials are capable of doing it. Inspection of products shipped to cities is time consuming and lacks redundancy.

The non-agricultural surface represents 53% of the total area of New Edom, as follows:
11% of the country is covered by deserts, salt flats, and bare-rock mountains, not suited for agricultural purposes
An additional 35% of New Edoms total surface is covered by woodlands.
And 7% is covered by cities, towns, villages, industrial areas and roads.

Most farms in New Edom are small and not economically viable, providing local sustenance. There is little surplus beyond that which is stored in case of famine. Bulgar wheat, rice, and millet are staple grains.

Skyfarm

Height: 300 Meters
Width: Radius is 20 Meters, Width is 40 Meters
Stories: 40 Stories Aboveground, 6 Stories below ground level

Building Construction: Modular circular construction. Each story is a cylindrical section of uniform height.

Building Materials: Enzyme bonded concrete, recycled metals, fiber insulation, bioplastics and biomaterials and other plant based materials developed using green chemistry.

Windows: The windows are made of a specially coated power glass. Power glass is a clear glass that can convert sunlight to electricity at a conversion rate of 8%. The windows also repel water. The water is caught in catchments at the bases of the windows.

Energy: There is a solar dish on the roof capable of powering the heating/cooling and farm systems in the building. Optionally in windy areas rotary wind turbines can be added instead. There is a pellet burning cogeneration heat/steam facility in the basement. This is run by powdering then compressing non-edible plant matter. It takes in leftovers from restaurants, excess plant matter from parks, roof gardens, and the vertical farm for processing. The cogeneration system uses a flue capture system to process any smog.

Farm Systems: The internal system is a bioshelter farm which houses aquaponics-- fish tanks for tilapia, hydroponics-- for growing different kinds of food, aeroponics-- for beans, strawberries, and other plants, small plot grains-- rice, wheat and corn, miniature fruit trees, mycology farms, and chicken coops. Because the food is grown indoors it is all organic with very few pesticides. A wide variety of foods is grown creating an indoor farm ecosystem. The system is designed to be very dense with trellises, stacking trays, and multiple layers of crops. In addition to food, a number of pharmaceutical herbs are grown.

Wastewater Treatment: The system includes a living machines blackwater treatement system. This can take sewage water and purify it so it can be used to water the plants.

There is an evapotranspiration system to recollect lost water, and collection stations to collect refuse to use in the pellet burning cogeneration system.

The lower levels include a refrigeration level and transportation to bring food to market.
There are 20 Skyfarms in Fineberg.

New Edom is working towards building a national park system, but in the meantime certain areas with threatened or endangered wildlife ad plants have been declared National Sanctuaries. There is a running joke in the government that the only NPFW official you are likely to get on the phone is an answering service.

The allied States of New Edom has a contract with Commonalitarianism to do waste disposal. This nation, which is very advanced in its own waste disposal, has a lack of materials. They deal with the following materials.
1) Organic compounds. This includes waste plant matter and farm matter. It also includes animal and human wastes.
2) Chemical and industrial wastes by common ingredient. We have created an aftermarket and filtration systems for specific products like chlorine, bleach and other common industrial chemicals.
3) Plastics recycled directly.
4) Metals recycled.
5) Hazardous materials. Our plasma converters are capable of converting
everything up to low level radioactives.
6) Electronics and batteries.
7) Wood, paper, and paper products.

Ministry of Police

Postby New Edom » Wed Apr 20, 2011 1:53 am

The Minister of Police:
Lieutenant-General Sidney Harcourt
Image
The current Minister used to be Director of Field Operations. He has risen high from his origins on the streets of Harbourtown where he was part of a criminal gang. Recruited originally as a protection group leader by Kohath to help with crowd control during demonstrations, he proved to be intelligent and capable, and was gradually groomed into the new Council Police. He has run important and successful foreign intelligence operations including during the Great Xanadou War and in the Third Elwe Uprising.

John Kohath
Image

Retired following the establishment of the government of General Pahath-Moab. A former Police Chief Inspector in the city of Lookinghaven, he joined the Free Congress cause and was very personally loyal to William Touchstone. He was initially a very effective builder of a national security organization but the second civil war created a split within the Council Police itself from which it has not yet recovered. He recently moved to a private estate in Arcologia, apparently having gotten very rich, though the exact whereabouts are unknown.[/spoiler]
The Council Police are New Edom's state security organ, which deals with electronic, communications, human and certain levels of military intelligence. They run the National Security Prison at Stonehaven. Council Police Officers dress in black uniforms when on official duty and have the responsibility for protection of cabinet ministers and other officials. They have operatives in every New Edomite Embassy.

Council Police Offices and Directorates

Council Police Information Security Office
Roughly 100,000 Officers in the CPISO.
This is the Office devoted to gathering foreign intelligence. It makes use of the following means of intelligence gathering:
1. human intelligence (use of contacts and informants who are managed by CPISO officers in embassies in some cases, in others through officers who are in disguise, often as business people, criminals, military personnel, etc. Strong efforts focused on operations in Hutanjia, Deadora, the Nalayan border, Raltirian Denethier and nations which have had the diaspora of feminists and homosexuals such as the Shrailleeni Empire and Allanea)

2. infiltration (insertion of spies directly into foreign governments, political groups, terrorist groups and corporations.)

3. electronic intelligence (use of satellites, spy planes, submarines, bugging, microphones and other means to listen to conversations, phone calls, and the like.)

4. cyber intelligence. (use of computers to monitor cyber activity.)

5. Cypher intelligence. This is basically codebreaking.

Council Police Home Security Office
Roughly 125,000 members of the CPHSO.
This Office monitors possible risks to national security at home and in the Protectorates, via the same means as above largely.

Council Police Protective Detail Directorate
This Directorate is responsible for internal security and the protection of members of government and visiting dignitaries. They are trained in counterrorism, surveillance, general area security, small arms and hand to hand combat. There are 3,500 members of the CPPDD.

Council Police Guards Command Office
The CPGCO is in charge of Stonehaven Prison and protecting other facilities. The Officers assigned to this Office are generally also available to support missions of the other Directorate and Offices. It has 75,000 members, mostly trained in combat operations, specializing in high security prison detail, counter-terrorism and urban combat. It includes one Special Operations Regiment of 1,750 personnel.

Current Operations
OOC Note: the information below is not viewable by a public information computer; it is considered classified information. Only rping of intelligence use will get the gist of what is being done.

1. Friendly nations. All friendly nations have CP officers at the embassy, and all of these establish contact with friendly security organizations and share information.

2. Unfriendly nations. Unfriendly nations with existing contact including: the Kingdom of Nordkrusen, Allanea, Deadora, Raltirian Denethier. At these nations embassies are encouraged to build networks of local contacts and informants.

3. Dengali: analysis of air force and navy aviation intelligence gathering is being done, as well as human intelligence gathering largely through business and military contacts.

4. Anti-Communist Operations in New Edom: this is being done as CP officers spy on Anarchist members of the Free Congress and other parties for infiltration by Communist nations.

5. Plans are being prepared to engage in espionage against the Shrailleeni Empire, Cookish States, and the United States of Dengali.

6. Suppressing the remnants of the Feminist Party.

7. Dealing with the The Free Amalgamation of Greatercornellia Society. This group intends to rebuild the Cornellian Empire, and is active particularly in Gloria Regis and in Etruria Majora. It has various splinter groups in both areas as well. This operation is generally considered closed and to be largely successful.

8. Operations in Arcologia to hunt down former Minister John Kohath.

Elwe
13% of the population
Descendants of a once proud empire called the Elwe Confederacy, of Numenorean origin, the Elwe range from dark olive to high olive skin tones, tend to be dark haired though among the Niradnis and Imed Elwe there are fair and red haired Elwe. How they came to be in the lands they now occupy is barely known, as there are no known written records of this, though it is recorded through legends as the fall of a once godlike people from their sunken cities, their ships arriving on a lonely wild shore as they were separated from others by terrifying storms. They were once the rulers of these lands, but have fallen into barbarism.

They practice a form of animistic religion generally and are organized by tribes and clans within the tribes. Until relatively recently they lived in isolated forests and marshlands, practicing ancient forms of farming, herding and hunting. They are known for elaborate feather decorations, knotwork designs and wood carving. Traditional weapons include bows, war axes and curved hunting knives. Nowadays all but the most remote Elwe hunt with modern rifles and shotguns, though the curved hunting knives are sometimes used to settle affairs of honour among them.

They are generally egalitarian though men and women have certain taboos regarding ceremonial acts; the line of descent is matrilineal though the High Princes and their councils tend to be male. High Princes nevertheless are chosen by the Council of Mothers in each tribe. The Elwe until recently were definitely oppressed as a people. The title of Prince or Duke (or the female equivalent) indicates a clan leader. The ones existing today are the survivors of Estovakivan slave raids, Baran wars of vengeance and plagues which ravaged them due to constant foreign arrivals and exploitation of the country.

- Niradnis Elwe (forming 35% of all Elwe, and most town dwelling Elwe in Brightwater, Dundabend and Dundelga. These Elwe are the most urbanized and traditional tribal practices are mostly ceremonial or related to the tourist trade. Niradnis exist in Teman as well as in Raith Immel Province. The Niradnis capital is in Brightwater, Raith Immel Province and is the home of their High Prince Findi Lamat.)

Typical Rural Niradnis Elwe

- Yerg Elwe (the most remote and rarely seen Elwe tribespeople, forming a mere 3%. Yerg Elwe rarely intermarry with other Elwe tribes and live very traditionally; they are a mountainous folk who practice hunter-gathering.)

- Niradle Elwe 30% ('Marsh' Elwe populating parts of lower Raith Immel along the Silver River bordering Haran; 'Marsh' Elwe are considered barbaric and degenerate by the Haranese and Barans in the region and are discriminated against. They are mostly fisherfolk and farmers.)

- Hcagurg Elwe - 11% (A rather warlike and reclusive tribe, these Elwe were among the most brutally put down during the general uprising 18 years ago. Many of them live on reservations and practice traditional culture; some have begun attending modern schools or serving as scouts in the Teman Rangers or other such units. They exist in Teman as well as in Raith Immel. Their High Prince, Mane Andoe, was a feared guerilla leader who staged raids on Baran and Temanite towns and is now in Stonehaven Prison.)

- Imed Elwe - 21% (These Elwe form the largest Elwe population in Teman and converted to farming generations ago. They maintain many traditions and tend to be fairly peaceful. Their High Prince is Luachair Dedad who is considered a kind of High Priest of the Elwe.)

Dawarf 2%The Dawarf are a small nation of indigenous people in Teman Province, New Edom, and are fairly short sturdy folk who tend to be rather hairy and have broad noses, heavy features and dark skin. They are rather stoic in outlook and practice a form of ancestor worship though nominally at least many Dawarf practice Baptist or Presbyterian Christianity. They have a Dawarf Council in the city of Nass in Teman which deals with their concerns—until recently Dawarf were discriminated against. Dawarf tend to mostly work in the logging, mining and service industries in Teman and elsewhere in New Edom.

Edomites form 50% of the population, and are generally considered to be Haranese or Baran, who are of semitic origin and language. Edomites feel they have a justified pride, in throwing off the yoke of foreign rule and establishing an empire from Cookish States to Etruria Majora across the region.

Edomites were called 'savage' by the Cornellians not so much for their actions in battle as their tendency to wear relatively little clothing, or in the case of Haranese none at all save for paint. Nakedness was considered practical, holy, and normal. There has been a revival of this recently in the form of the practice of Edenism.
Haranese
10%Haranese are an olive skinned semitic people who follow a strange mix of Christianity and pagan religion which has for centuries existed under the patronage of the Apostolic Archbishop of Fineberg. Belief in magic as a necessity to deal with demons which control weather and plagues is common among the rural Haranese, who are most often farmers, fishermen and oil industry labourers. The largest Haranese population is in the city of Sterry, Haran Province. Smaller populations exist in Fort Necessity and Gone.

Barans
40%Image
Typical Fineberg Street Scene

The semitic Baran people are of three main types: Plains Barans (who are the most traditional among them), Town Barans (the largest Baran Population) and Temanite Barans.

Baran culture is traditionally Apostolic Christian mingled with ancestor worship, is patriarchal and devoted to animal husbandry and herd raiding. Among plainsmen this is merely ceremonial; among Town Barans this is forgotten and almost embarrassing; among Temanites it is preserved as a form of rowdiness.

Temanite Barans form the larger population of New Edomites in places like Teman and Raith Immel, and are rural people with a generally modern outlook on life and a faint contempt for non-Barans. Family lineage is important to them.

Barans form the largest populations in Teman, East Bara, Glasstower and northern Lookinghaven. Aristocratic families retain ancient titles which are given as a courtesy. The Obed, Shalmaneser, Tubal-Cain and Pahath-Moab families claim princely titles which are acknowledged for their long service to the country. Since the Obed family used to rule the country, some Monarchists refer to the head of that family as "King", though most non-Barans have stopped doing it. The Barans tend to form the largest part of the officer corps in the military.

20% of the population.
The Cornellians are a latin people, the original rulers of the region. While intermarriage is increasingly common, these descendents of colonists in Etruria Majora and Gloria Regis held to themselves and in exchange for the protection of the Baran rulers became very useful as administrators, officers and other officials. In many ways they still form part of the middle class and a few members of upper class society in New Edom.

15% of the population.
This term is resented by some modern people--it refers to various human subtypes from African to Oriental to Caucasians.
African 10%
Some are Dahamians or Dengalis who have immigrated to New Edom largely to find work as the way of life in those largely agrarian countries are transformed into base industrial nations by industry.

Others are Sorgen immigrants fleeing persecution in Ascelonia in the Tyrrhenia region are dark skinned people who mostly have curly hair, broad features. Those Sorgen families which were highly educated or skilled formed alliances with Baran families and although little intermarriage took place are highly respected as a cultured class. Sorgen families without such skills live mostly in Harbourtown and Lookinghaven as part of the labouring class. They tend to be of various Christian denominations. In addition to this people from Liberia form a significant part of this population.

Oriental10%
Mostly of Ani origin, these people have also interbred, though in some cases have maintained long standing communities in major cities. While they have a sense of cultural attachment to their ancestral homeland, most of them consider themselves Edomites and would be astonished to be called anything else.

Anglo-German80%
Mostly people from parts of Pardes including Belfras, Estovakiva, Riemaia--technically not Anglo-German but the term has stuck. They also see themselves as Edomites, and as a prominent part of the population at times resent being condescended to by Barans or Haranese. They range from the old fashioned peasant population of Lookinghaven and Teman who till a couple of generations ago still lived in the early 19th century to ultra modern people living in big cities.


Religion
New Edom is overwhelmingly Christian, with the exception of the Protectorate of Etruria Majora, Gloria Regis and Elwe dominated regions.

The official church of New Edom is the New Edomite Apostolic Church, headed by Archbishop William Laudner. It is followed by the End Times Church, the Haranese Christian Church, the Presbyterian Church and the Baptist Church. These churches collectively have a great deal of influence over the people of New Edom.

- Bloody Flowers: Taking place in the 16th century Sensalian Revolution where the oppressed poor had had enough of the oppression of the nobility. "Bloody Flowers" starts off with the childhood of Daegeum Yi(Gan Park) who is like every other poor peasant of Sensal. Working his master's field, paying outrageous taxes to his master, and receiving constant abuse by his master. Daegeum eventually kills his master and several other members of the upper nobility when his drunk overlord beats his entire family to death with some of his drunken friends.
Daegeum decides to launch a crusade against the nobility and in extension the crown. Raiding the rich estates of the nobility and handing out the stolen wealth amongst the poor with the training received from the temple monk. Daegeum soon becomes an icon of justice to the poor and an icon of revolution to King Bradly(Wang Sho) and the nobility.

Chef's Paradise:Everyone cannot be a superhero with amazing powers that can vanquish thousands of enemies at once. But if given a talent, a person should utilize it at the fullest to help the people. Kimchi Gash(Buse Nam) has a talent that is neither unusual nor specifically powerful. Kimchi has the talent of cooking rather marvelous dishes. In his small town that he lives in, Kimchi is known as the town's best chef and several times had been asked by several residents why he didn't move somewhere larger.

Many of them didn't know though, that Kimchi wasn't the carefree chef that many saw him as at his restaurant. Kimchi rather has a mother that is dying of gastric cancer and requires expensive medication to survive. And so Kimchi as her only remaining family member attempts to take care of her as best as possible. Most of the money he makes as a consequence goes to his mother's care and Kimchi himself lives in the most humblest of living conditions. When asked why he doesn't go on to the big city, Kimchi says he's perfectly fine in the small village but in reality knows he can't go without income for more then a week if he wants his mother to live.

Room 6: Created out of the necessity to fund underhand methods of the government but keep secret at the same time. Room 6 was made by the government 40 years ago when dealing with terrorist waves, political and social unrest, and growing corporate power. Funding and many times directing several underhand methods of the government, Room 6 never existed and any who was hired could never leave once accepted. Many of the members of Room 6 didn't even see eachother and only knew them by a number. Secrecy was considered the highest value and anyone who got wind of anything dealing with Room 6 was made sure they wouldn't compromise national security.

Secrecy is compromised one day when ambitious journalist Park-Sam-Shin(Shin-Han-Kim) unleashes a media firestorm after managing to uncover the secrets of Room 6 after posting a story of Room 6's dealings on the internet. With Room 6 and their operations no longer secret, the nation is thrown into chaos as the government attempts to censor the media and douse the fire.

Wielkilas The Wielkilasian television network produced a supernatural drama called Living with Humanity about a charming homosexual werewolf who shares a flat with a hipster vampire and a melancholy rusalka. It stars Ania Chałupiec, playing the werewolf, who also holds a degree in sociology and is an accomplished martial artist having studied Takkyeon extensively. More recently she has acted as a representative and spokesperson for the Wielkilasin government to the military alliance known as NAZTG where she welcomed members of that organization. And Ania has also been a strong supporter and advocate of HBT causes within the nation. While she is a popular television actress she is often denounced for her depiction of a homosexual character by moral authorities.

Her co-star, Alison Auteuil has been lauded for her professionalism and superb performance alongside fellow actress Ania Chałupiec as Roza, the melancholy rusalka, in the hit show Living With Humanity. And it was this role that eventually led to the nation’s men howling in despair and drooling profusely when their beloved Roza was seen giving her co-star, Ania Chałupiec, a very convincing kiss during a television award show after accepting an award. She is tall at 1.83 meters, is slender (though she is a far cry from the ultra thin models some know better) and curves to die for (her bosom, among other things is ogled by over men, boys, and even women and girls. Though some jealousy can be found in the latter group). Her hair is long, dark brown, with gentle curls, her eyes are a sparkling entrancing blue, and her lips shout come hither. Everything about her appearance combines to paint a picture of an alluring, stunningly beautiful woman whose posters are found above the beds of teenagers and who is regarded as hottest sex symbol in the nation. In spite of her gayness she is one of the most popular stars in New Edom as well.

Artist/Group Name: 10 to 1
Members: Mike Morrison, Simon Tao, Art Vandalay, Jess Zora
From: Adiron
Style: Classic rock (with blues and jazz influence)
Named after their projected odds of success, 10-to-1 (or 1021 as abbreviated by fans) is a constantly-experimenting rock band formed in the mid-1990s. Though their original style was closer to punk rock, maturity, a consistently loyal fanbase, and increased freedom from the recording industry has seen 10-to-1 branch out to different sounds over the years.

Their first major shift saw the band taking increased inspiration from bands who came before, including The Who, Led Zeppelin, and Guns N' Roses. This move was strongly opposed by their big-name label, who expected the band to stick to its current lucrative young demographic. Refusing to budge for the sake of artistic integrity, 10-to-1 was dropped by the label outright, not wanting to sign onto what they felt would be an inevitable flop and seemingly validating the band's moniker.

Instead, the band turned to a business model that was revolutionary in the late 1990s: online distribution. Working initially with a former manager and a few technically-inclined fans, 10-to-1 made their new album for sale completely online via free software called "The Tap." The idea of the "single" was also revived as individual tracks were made available for download. Luckily for the format, the album was released to critical acclaim, finding audiences who previously wrote 10-to-1 off as "a bunch of noisy kids" and setting the band apart from the pack.

The band also felt vindicated in massively undercutting the major labels. 10-to-1's distribution model was ahead of the curve, and the rise of broadband Internet and digital media formats in Adiron only put them even farther in the lead. The Tap's decentralized structure and open nature also made it a hub for other artists wishing to get their work noticed despite lacking the interest of major labels. The labels themselves eventually succumbed to market pressure and offered online distribution themselves, some of them through The Tap. Though the band stopped playing a direct role in The Tap's management some years ago, its members do still own stock and receive dividends.

10-to-1's latest sound draws from influences farther in the past still, including classical rhythm and blues. Some fans joke that the band's albums seem to be traveling farther and farther back in time, to the point where one day they'll trade in electric guitars for harpsichords.

The lead singer is Mike Morrison, consistently characterized by irreverence, lack of respect for authority (especially recording industry reps), considerable technical skill, and "extreme disregard for the safety of himself and others." His uncompromising nature was what resulted in the band being dropped from their original label, and along with Tao is one of the two main creative forces in the band. Infamously suffered from alcohol poisoning twice in one month.

Simon Tao is lead guitarist, the first of the two brains of the outfit. Though Morrison remains the face and heart of the band, it falls to Tao to act as primary songwriter, peacekeeper, and (relative) voice of reason. His destructive performances, however, might give the impression that Morrison is the sane one. Once lost the hearing in his right ear for several weeks after he caused a malfunctioning amp to explode by smashing it with his guitar (quoted as saying "Only one way to fix this fucking thing!"). The audience thought it was part of the act and applauded.

Bassist Art Vandelay is the other brain of the band, though in other matters. Pegged as "the nice guy," Vandelay proved to be the most business-savvy of the four. Of the band members, he was the single most involved with setting up The Tap and getting their independent albums off the ground. Served in the military during the Second Burnt Hills War, the details of which Vandelay refuses to disclose.

Drummer Jess Zora supplements Morrison's destructive attitudes with her own. Reported to habitually throw televisions out of hotel windows, and to have destroyed a hotel toilet with a half-stick of dynamite in response to the owner calling their practicing "noise." Zora has drawn attention as being one of the few drummers able to emulate, insofar as it is possible to do so, the distinctive chaotic 'style' of The Who's Keith Moon.

Artist/Group Name: DragonFire ( Punk Rock Band)
Description:
DragonFire is s band whose star has risen to extraordinary heights and does not look like it will ever come down. They have amassed a huge fan base, packed concert halls, and stolen the hearts of millions of young and middle-age Wielkilasin men and women, boys and girls with their energetic and often melodic variety of punk rock. From their humble beginning playing in bars and nightclubs to earn a meager living, these four women have launched themselves into super-stardom with a string of hits and multi-platinum albums and a musical style that continues to develop and mature. They are ample proof that anyone, regardless of their socioeconomic beginnings can achieve greatness in the nation of Wielkilas.

The story of DragonFire began in the small northern fishing village of Słobice, were the four members all attended the Roza II Secondary School. The four young women, who had all grown up in relatively poor households, had managed to scrape together a collection of instruments during their primary school years and had practiced and performed whenever free time presented itself and by the end of the end of their final year in secondary school had caught the eyes of not only music industry scouts but a the chairman of the well renowned Le Conservatoire,

When it came time to choose though, the quartet chose to accept the offer of an entrance audition at Le Conservatoire and wound up with scholarships to attend the conservatory. Of course, the quartet of young women did not stop performing during this time, though they did slow down slightly, and evolved their talents and honed their skill at Le Conservatoire. And when they emerged from the conservatory they exploded onto the Wielkilasin rock stage with hit after hit.

The Members of the Band are:

The lead guitarist and lead singer of the band, simply known as Köl (Ice), manages to be both beautiful and rough around the edges simultaneously. Her voice is powerful, enchanting, rough, and melodic all wrapped into one and is greatly sought after. She is also known for her many rather provocative outfits and sometimes sensual movements on stage, both of which have earned her a top spot on the banned musicians list of many of the more conservative Wielkilasin citizens.

She is known to party hard, though not as often as she is said to, and is quite frequently able to drink any other woman or man under the table if she so chooses. She has been a part of many a bar brawl and has even found herself in a rather rough fight with several conservative members of the Sejm which earned her a month long stint in a local jail which saw her emerge more popular than before. Since the incident though, she has calmed down dramatically, though she still maintains a healthy love of celebrations.

She is reported to be dating the hockey star, Jan Sobieski of the Jarocław Pancerni.

Quiet, stoic, and modest are the three words that best describe the backup guitarist and vocalist of DragonFire, Ludmita Liberkowski. She is known not only for her calm demeanor, but also her amazing skill with the guitar that some say matches or surpasses that of the DragonFire frontwoman, though Ludmita often denies this. She is the band’s voice of reason and concience and has done a lot to keep the other members of the band from drowning in excess, debauchery, and vice. And while she doesn’t dress in quite the same provocative fashion as the other members of the band, she still very much embraces the soul of punk fashion.

The third member and probably the one with the most “amorous” reputation is the drummer, Claudette Dalle. She is known for her wild hair styles and mind boggling speed, precision, and skill with a pair of drumsticks. After Köl, she is the most popular of the four women who comprise DragonFire.

While frontwoman Köl is known for partying and brawling, Claudette has earned a reputation for her sexual appetite. Tabloids, talk shows, and the average person on the street can list off at least a dozen different individuals of both sexes that the DragonFire drummer has fornicated with. Whether the rumors of her sexual appetite are indeed true, is not an easy question to answer as Claudette has never denied the rumors and has at times hinted at their truth

But despite her very sexual repuation, DragonFire’s drummer remains very much a mystery as she shares very little of her actual life with the public. One of the biggest mysteries of course being the nature of her sexuality. Is she heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual like the many rumors like to state? Only time will tell.

The fourth and final member of DragonFire is Gökçe Elçin and the band's bassist. Eschewing the electric bass guitar of most bassists, she instead plays a standing double bass. She is the band member who comes from the humblest of origins as a young girl orphaned by the murder of her parents after the family had immigrated to Wielkilas from their homeland of Gökşir. The future drummer of DragonFire found herself moving from one orphanage to another with barely a pair of clothes and a ragged doll to her name.

Gökçe worked very hard in her schooling both primary and secondary and was the last of the quartet to join what would become DragonFire. And her becoming a member of the band was something that almost did not happen as she was determined to follow in the footsteps of her parents and become an engineer. It took Köl an entire year to convince the talented young Ezmaleri orphan to join the quartet and it turned out to be a very good move for Gökçe.

Though she has dedicated herself to DragonFire, Gökçe never lost her interest in engineering and earned a degree in the subject while in the recording studio and on tour with the band. She is extremely professional and handles all the negotiations and other business dealings of the band. It is through her dealings in the business of music and frontwoman Köl’s charisma and force of personality that DragonFire has managed to succeed where so many other bands would have failed.

Gökçe is probably the least known and notorious of the four women that make up DragonFire and does not make any complaints as she would prefer to remain in the shadow of the more colorful members of the band.

Popularity: Estimated at 95% Approval Rating in Sensal

Overview: "Found" during SMC auditions during their high school years, the current members of Girl's Century were chosen for their amazing singing abilities, dance abilities, among many other factors in the Sensalian youth. During the time between them being "found" and their debut in 2007 with their first full album "Goodness" was vigorous and intense training. But when the group first did debut, Girl's Century was found to be a major hit among many young Sensalians(ages 13-18) with their overall cute look and music.

Immediately beginning to work on a new full album after the amazing success of their debut, Girl's Century returned to work for their second full album and first mini album. During the space between the two, Girl's Century was found to be massively popular and increasingly were called to do advertisements and CF's. The release of their next full album "What a Life" in 2008 and their first mini album "Like?" was met with roaring approval from the general public with their audience range expanding greatly. With the two albums out and popularity of Girl's Century skyrocketing, Girl's Century began their first nation wide tour. Performing in all the major cities of Sensal and even in some of the smaller cities, Girl's Century proved themselves to be the most powerful performers in Sensal.

With the tour giving a significant boost to their popularity, Girl's Century returned next year with another full album and another mini album. Meeting instant success due to their massive popularity, a tour was decidedly not needed and the group has been given time off for a well due vacation.

Tours

Sensalian Nationwide Tour(June 1st, 2008 - September 1st, 2008)
Using the momentum from the success of the recent albums to even further Girl's Century skyrocketing popularity, the massive tour covered most all of Sensal's major cities and even arrived in some of the smaller cities as well. The Sensalian Nationwide Tour was Girl's Century first tour ever and considered a massive success in all forms. Drawing out +20,000 crowds at every concert, the total of 10 performances across all major Sensalian Cities boosted the image of Girl's Century as to make them the most popular group in Sensal.

After the tour, Girl's Century's popularity shot up massively once again and was one of the biggest reasons as to why Girl's Century is considered Sensal's most popular music group. The group's image also was established as powerful performers and Sensal's "cute face" among International fans. Afterwards, the group rose to their current level and at this point is poised to make international fame with their first out of country tour in Virtuous Greed.


Sports in New Edom are not publicly funded but are provided for by attendance.

The number one most popular sport in New Edom is Motor Joust--medieval style tourney with motorcycles. It is probably the most dangerous sport as well--injuries are common, including fatalities.
Image

Following this is Rollerball, another dangerous and violent sport, played on a roller rink done on rollerblades.
Image

Finally there is Football, also known as Soccer, which is not as widely popular but is probably more widely played.


The Fineberg Times is available in print and online. It tends to be a rather conservative paper.
The Lookinghaven Daily News is the other nationally available print/online news service. It tends to be very leftist.


The New Edomite movie industry is still a fledgeling one, so imported DVDs are popular. Movie theatres exist in most major cities, and smaller cities and large towns tend to have someplace where movies are shown publicly. Foreign movies from Ossurwald, Riemaia, and Ganosia are popular.

Most New Edomite made movies are knockoffs of other popular movies, such as:
New Edomite Harry Potter This version of the tale of the lovable boy who learns to become a wizard, is said to drive certain people insane and cause epileptics brain damage. Because of this it is a cult favorite.

Sif Finnhald's Fists of Justice series, about a female police officer who is also a champion kickboxer, are popular as a cult classic among some foreigners.

Probably the current favourite among New Edomite movies is the Guy on a Buffalo series, about a heroic colonial frontiersman in Teman and his adventures with his bison.
Daniel Hesper (the actor who plays the iconic "Guy on a Buffalo", known only for his role in the B movie series from New Edom) He is known for his impressive beard. When he is not working on the next "Guy on a Buffalo" movie he works at the family restaurant in Padan-Aran.

Culture and Customs
Marriage
Marriage
There are three kinds of marriage that are legal in New Edom in general. The first and foremost is Christian marriage recognized by the Council of Five Churches--monogamous heterosexual marriage between consenting adults. While divorce is strongly discouraged it is legal under the following circumstances:
- adultery
- abandonment (1 year at least)
- non-consummation
- abuse (physical)

Polygamy is legal for members of the End Times Church, and polyandry is legal for the Elwe people.

Sex
Sex education is a controversial issue, and it is mandatory in have it in certain provinces and Protectorates of the nation. However the extent of it is another matter. For example in Bara it is only required to make clear the biological necessities, while in Gloria Regis it is course mandatory from K-12 at different levels 'as apropriate'. In Gloria Regis (for example) what is referred to as the Premar program prepares young people for the possibility of marital relations.

Nudity
With Nudity compulsory throughout the Allied States it was required for sex education, particularly with a view towards teaching Morality Act marital basis (based on Ephesians Chapter 5 of the Bible) has also become mandatory.

It has become customary to have a form of sexual decorum and strong personal hygiene. For example most people carry shoulder bags with a personal towel or 'mantle' as it is referred to with them, both to sit on and to dress with where necessary in order to prevent embarrassment for foreigners or to be decorous in church if need be. People wear sandals, shoes or flip flops of some kind for the most part. Certain forms of work require covering as do certain kinds of weather.

Body paint in order to designate rank, fashion or the like has become common, as have disposable outfits. People also wear athletic outfits and nightwear, usually to increase attractiveness or appearance in general.

Since the end of the Compulsory Nudity Act, the cultural views of public nudity are more relaxed; many Edenists still exist particularly in Fineberg, Sterry and southern Bara.

Ministry of Education

Postby New Edom » Sat Apr 30, 2011 12:07 pm

Minister of Education: Dr. Elizabeth Salt
Image
Elizabeth Salt was educated in Mototaka and in Ossurwald, and obtained a doctorate in Medicine specializing in immunology. She has focused much of her career on helping refugees and other displaced persons, and during the civil war ended up leading the National Council for Refugees. Along with Archbishop William Laudner she was one of those instrumental in obtaining foreign intervention that enabled aid, shelter and protection for civilians during the civil war. As one of New Edom's most popular members of government, she apparently only reluctantly filled the office of Minister of Health in order to accomplished what she feared others might not, given the Augean Stables that New Edom's health situation is. Reluctantly agreeing to the need for a cabinet shuffle, she is settling into her new position.

Ministerial Officers:
Inter-City Planning Commission (Director Dr. Amon Ashren)

Currently the Department of Education is undergoing reforms following the election of the Free Congress and the appointment of Lina Comhghall to the position of Minister of Education. Minister's location currently unknown.

New Edom has five universities, 1 military academy, 24 vocational colleges, and a number of schools that are run either by the New Edomite Catholic Church, the Haranese Christian Church, the End Times Days Church, or the National Council of Churches (Baptist run for the most part). There are more recent schools which are run by foreign corporations. Thus most schooling in New Edom is run by private organizations. Universities require students to pay directly for tuition, books, and lab space; there are privately organized loans and scholarships but no government funded ones. Etruria Majora and Gloria Regis have their own separate education systems.

Education Minister Comhghall has proposed the following measures to be upheld in the Department of Education:

She has proposed before that New Edom shift to a guaranteed education for every citizen of New Edom to the age of 18.

This includes a 10-month long school year (avoiding the coldest month and the hottest month), covering a national curriculum which includes math, history & civics, foreign language, reading & writing, and science. There'd be a vocational track starting at age 14 which students looking to get into expert vocations could enter and then be fast-tracked into two-year technical schools. Likewise, exceptionally talented students could be placed into college-level courses as early as age 16 in cooperation with our universities (which should be expanded until our universities cover those prospective attendees that can't afford private colleges). She would also like New Edom's universities to be run where faculty double as staff; thus eliminating staff needs and costs.

Shifting funding out of the well-established schools which have adequate facilities and teachers and pump more funding into the underdeveloped systems in the rural areas; there need to be pay incentives to get better teachers out into the countryside. School days should likewise coincide with the average workday, so that children aren't milling around on the streets waiting for parents to return from school.

It's also been suggested that public schools double as medical clinics and community centers and offer night classes for adults who can't afford to attend university or a technical school or community college.

The Free Republic of Lamoni's various corporate and government entities investing in New Edomite government also offered a whole cloth public school system. While this is still run by the Council of Five Churches as detailed below there has been an increase in hiring non-clergy as teachers, though administration and most teaching is still done by clergy. The article below is taken from theLamonian World Factbook:

Education in Lamoni
Introduction

Education in Lamoni is a multi-step process which is designed to ensure that each student can demonstrate their full potential in an academic setting. Widely considered to be a egalitarian system, it consists of well-funded and carefully thought out classes and programs. There are no tuition fees, and each student (up to graduation day for the Comprehensive School) being entitled to a free lunch during each school day. Part of the overall strategy has been to spread the school network, so that pupils have a school near their homes whenever possible, or if this is not feasible, to provide free transportation to more widely dispersed schools. Inclusive educational efforts within the classroom and instructional efforts to minimize low achievement are also typical of the system.

The Lamonian educational system is highly regarded, with a large proportion of University students earning multiple degrees.

Teachers

Teachers at the primary and secondary education levels must have a Master's degree to qualify. Teaching is a highly respected profession in Lamoni, and entrance into these university programs is highly competitive. Those who would become teachers must have exceptional grades,
and must combat fierce opposition in order to complete the program, and become a teacher. About 10% of applicants to these programs are successful. With the high level of respect accorded to the profession, as well as the higher than average salaries, larger numbers of highly performing applicants are applying for the positions, a happy state of affairs which is reflected in the quality of teachers in Lamoni. Those who teach at the university level often have (or are close to having) their own doctorates in the field in which they are teaching.

Pre-School

Lamonians consider high quality daycare and Pre-Schools to be critical for developing the co-operation and communication skills needed to prepare students for lifelong education, as well as formal learning of reading and math, extending from eight months to age seven, so as not to disrupt their early childhood. Pre-School is divided in two parts, daycare, and Kindergarten. Kindergarten begins at age six, and lasts for one standard school year (Jan-Dec). Daycare staff to child ratios are three staff members for every 12 children.

Pre-School emphasizes respect for each child's individuality and the chance for each child to develop as a unique person. Educators also guide children in the development of social and interactive skills, encouraging them to pay attention to other people's needs and interests, to care about others, and to have a positive attitude toward other people, cultures, and environments.

To foster a culture of reading, parents of newborn babies are given three books, one each for the mother and father, and a baby book for the child, as part of what is called the "maternity package." 90% of brain growth takes place during the first five years of life, and 85% of nerve paths
develop before starting school, according to neurological research. Thus, proper upbringing during these years is seen as an essential part of life, as well as a predictor of how a child might do during their school years.

Comprehensive School

The nine year Comprehensive School, which lasts from age 7, until age 16, is next. A comprehensive school is a state school that does not select its intake on the basis of academic achievement or aptitude. The only criteria for the child to attend a Comprehensive School is to live inside the boundaries of that particular school's district.

In comparison with RL American schooling, Lamonian Comprehensive Schools would run from elementary school, to junior high. There are no "gifted" programs in these schools, those who are quicker to grasp the concepts being taught expected to help those who are slower to grasp these same concepts. Largely funded by local governments, these schools must still conform to federal education standards. There are few private schools, most of these being provided for the children of diplomats assigned to Lamoni from other nations. In any case, the use of tuition fees is illegal, as it is the duty of the government to provide schooling to all of it's citizens, especially those who would least be able to afford the costs.

Teachers are fully unionized, and follow national curriculum guidelines but are given a great deal of autonomy as to methods of instruction and are even allowed to choose their own textbooks, within the bounds of propriety. Class sizes are small, seldom more than 20 students per instructor.
From the outset, pupils are expected to learn two languages in addition to English. In addition students in grades one through nine spend from four to eleven periods each week taking classes in art, music, cooking, carpentry, metalwork, and textiles.

The atmosphere inside the Comprehesive School is relaxed, and the interiors are so clean that students often wear socks without shoes. Outdoor activities are stressed even in the coldest weather; and homework is minimal, in order to leave room for extra-curricular activities.

Reading for pleasure is actively encouraged (as the large amount of children's books published every year suggests). Television stations show foreign programs in their original language with subtitles, so that Lamonian children even read while watching TV.

The Lamonian grading scale uses the same A-F scale as used in the United States, and pupils are typically issued a report card twice a year. This typically takes place at the end of June, and the end of December. There are no high-stakes tests, instead smaller tests are given throughout the
year. This has been shown to reduce stress on the students, who typically respond with better grades. If a student receives an F in one subject at the end of the semester, then they must show by a seperate examination that they have improved in the subject. If they receive multiple failing
grades, then they may have to retake the year, though it is far preferable to provide a struggling student with extra help and tutoring. In cases where a student is retained, the decision is made by the teachers, and the headmaster after interviewing the pupil and the parents.

Comprehensive School students enjoy social entitlements, such as school health care and a free lunch, which covers about a third of the daily nutritional need. In addition, pupils are entitled to receive free books and materials and free school trips (or even housing) in the event that
they have a long or arduous trip to school.

Upper Secondary Education

Starting at age sixteen, Upper Secondary Education lasts three years, and is compulsory. Lamonian students are required to choose whether to attend an Upper Secondary School, or a Vocational School.

Upper Secondary Schools teach courses designed to prepare the pupil for university studies, as well as expanding upon the concepts taught in the Comprehensive School. Vocational Schools teach courses designed to prepare the pupil for a specific trade of type of employment. The system is
not totally rigid, with pupils in Vocational Schools being able to attend an Upper Secondary School at the same time. However, this option is rarely taken. Upon graduation, Vocational School graduates receive a Vocational School Certificate, while Upper Secondary School graduates receive a diploma.

In order to advance to university, graduates from the Upper Secondary School must complete and pass a nationally graded matriculation exam. Approximately 83% of the Upper Academic School students pass the matriculation exam, which is monitored by the government in order to ensure that the matriculation exam is academically challenging. Combined with the pupil's GPA from the Upper Secondary School, the score from the exam is used in addition with interviews to determine the pupil's eligibility to enter the desired university.

University

There are two different types of schools at the University level in the Lamonian Educational System. These are known as Universities, and Polytechnics. The focus for Universities is research, and they tend to give a more theoretical education, while the Polytechnics focus on practical skils, seldom pursuing research.

However, the Polytechnics do engage in industry development projects. In example, physicians are University graduates, whereas Registered Nurses (RNs) are Polytechnic graduates. All Universities and Polytechnics are owned by the Lamonian Government. A Bachelor's Degree can take from three to four years, depending on the program. This may be the point of graduation, but is typically only a stepping-stone on the way to a Master's Degree. A Polytechnic degree typically takes from 3.5-4.5 years, and is equivalent to a Bachelor's Degree from a University. Those who have graduated from a Polytechnic can then continue their studies in a University. A Master's Degree would therefore take three years, with one of those years being spent playing catch-up to bring them to the level of normal University students. The Licentiate and Doctorate Degrees are available only in Universities.

No tuition fees are collected, but since 1990, there have been plans at the government level to introduce tuition fees to students from outside Lamoni. Various student organizations have opposed these plans. In Universities, membership in the student's union is compulsory. The student's unions of Polytechnics are similarly recognized in legislation, but membership is voluntary. State-guaranteed student loans are available to those students who demonstrably cannot afford the costs of their own books, materials, housing, and food, with said loans starting to be paid back ten years after the pupil stops attending schooling.

Minister of Tourism: Josefina Hengmani
Image
The former Ethnarch of Harbourtown, Director of the National Parks Foundation under King Mark, and part of the New Edomite Commerce Committee (a non-profit private group promoting New Edomite economic growth), Josefina Hengmani has been an indefatigable worker for the improvement of the New Edomite finance community and her committee helped obtain microfinancing to improve local businesses in the country.

Mrs. Juliana Lindley
Image
Former Minister of Commerce; Mrs. Lindley is an Anglo German and was born in Glasstower but moved to Fineburg during her young adulthood where she earned a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a focus in Marketing. She went on to open and own a successful chain of restaurants called Juliana's. (popular cafes not much known outside of New Edom) She is a level headed person and is more of a Christian-Democrat than the average member of the Free Congress leadership.

Image
Marcus Cruonis was a family man with two children, a wife, and a dog named Spot. He was a division manager of the Undersea Salvage and Recycling Cooperative. Currently, the cooperative is working on collecting recyclables for export, recycling old computer equipment-- waste, refurbishing cars and other heavy equipment, and converting older military equipment for civilian use. The Undersea Salvage and Recycling Cooperative has been in operation for over 70 years and is an international cooperative, having many units in a variety of countries.

He strongly believed in green technology. There is a picture of a house he has bought with solar panels on the roof and a small wind turbine. He has gone to many conferences on recycling and has appeared several times on television shows about green technology and recycling.

There is a younger picture of him in in his 30s a book called Raising the Sea Scorpion about the recovery of a nuclear submarine off the coast of Russ. Because of his great interest in the sea and the environment he has been working hard to balance Green with improving New Edom's tourism.

Control

Air Traffic Control is done by a tower on site, while weather observation is connected to Fineberg Royal Air Force Base.

Security

A branch of the Royal Air Force called New Edomite Airline Security Authority does most of the uniformed, plainclothes, investigative and administrative work of security at the moment. However the Council Police are also entitled to become involved in investigations that involve terrorism, insurgency or other acts against the state directly. New Edomite security is generally fairly normal but some foreign nationals have referred to it as ‘invasive’ when suspected drug or weapons smuggling is involved.

Cargo Services

A terminal solely for large cargo services is on site along with services for National Mail and other courier services. It is divided into Import, Export and Domestic main areas.

Personal Services

Fineberg International has the following services: a small shopping area (with plans to lease shopping to foreign stores), food court, a lounge and bar, washrooms, and a small medical clinic. In addition the Tradewinds Hotel with adjacent golf course is nearby.

Military Services/Paramilitary Services

A small military terminal is used for assistance of search and rescue services. An arresting hook is on sight for emergency landings; the strip is long enough for large cargo planes or passenger planes to have assisted landings and an emergency medical and fire unit is on site at all times.


1. Make sure you keep your various identification papers with you at all times or have them in a safe place--the safe at your hotel room is not a bad location in some areas (Raith Immel Province, Etruria Majora Protectorate, Haran Province).

2. If you are traveling around coastal Haran, southern Raith Immel or southern Bara make sure to bring mosquito repellent and see a doctor if you experience any fevers.

3. Respect Churches and clergy--you don't have to attend church but do not speak offensively around clergy or near churches as it will be considered offensive.

4. Remember that public nudity is compulsory in some areas in New Edom, and is generally socially acceptable in most areas.

Or, go to the Fineberg Branch of Frazzini's
Frazzini's was a handsome outdoor cafe, run by the Frazzini Brothers at one time. They were Ivrea-Mantovans and had died of a suicide pact when the girl they were both rivals for ran off with a geological surveyor. It was then purchased by a cheerful but clueless rich widow who bought it but was so caught up in various projects that she forgot about it and nearly ran it into the ground. Finally it was bought by the Master of the Crags, an evil sorceror who hired advertising experts, new kitchen staff, decorators, writers and excellent wait staff and produced a lovely seaside (or within reach of seaside) cafe.

Frazzini's dinner menu included the following: pasta (spaghetti either with marinara, frutti di mare, or with a plain meat and tomato sauce; lasagna, canneloni, tortelini with veal, baked macaroni), Istrian stew (beans, sauerkraut, potatoes, bacon and spare ribs), gnocchi with parmesan and garlic, rabbit pie (made with polenta), risotto with saffron. One of the unusual appetizers was Baran beef served raw with garlic oil, lemon and salt.

An attractive red headed lesbian was the head chef, and her cheerful friendly demeanor kept the kitchen staff with high morale. A dark haired flamboyant Baran woman who had nothing to do with the actual running of the restaurant was the one who flirted extravagantly with favorite customers, wept as the Baby Grand piano in the corner played sweet dolce Italian music on Friday and Saturday evenings, and was the one who waved her hands at people who said "Why don't you rename it "Carmen's"?" Either Carmen or Gino, the self effacing quiet and compassionate man who ran most of the day shift as manager, with his great moustache and soft brown eyes, who spoke romantically but respectfully to all the women and who seemed to dream of the old country so sweetly.


Water Parks
Aqualand Water Parks are located in all major cities—fun for the whole family with water slides, pools and enjoyment for all ages!

Fineberg Zoo
The best zoo in the country features animals that are seen almost nowhere else—animals from Riemaia, Inutoland and from the New Edomite archipelago are rare in other parts of the world. Come see Riemaian giant moas, giant ground sloths from Inutoland, terror birds and the legendary New Edomite saber toothed salmon! Petting zoo for the little kids, an aquarium featuring short toothed walrus and exotic fish found only in the Edomite Isles’ shallows and freshwater rivers, and go on a steam rail tour round the whole zoological park. Botanical gardens, cafes, and beautiful open air parks make this an ideal place for tours, parties and picnics.

Concert Halls
Music is very popular in New Edom, and keeping an eye out for local concerts is always a good idea. In addition to this bands from outside the country are often invited to take part in folk, rock or classical festivals.
Sports Events and Other Local Culture
Ministry of Culture Link.

Victory Gentleman's Club
New Edom's only luxury strip club comes complete with lavish full service bars, four main performance stages with gold stripper poles, state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems, posh V.I.P. rooms, and much, much more.

Ministry of the Interior

Postby New Edom » Thu Aug 04, 2011 2:35 pm

The Ministry of the Interior is an office shared by the President, Attorney-General, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education and Ministry of Police. It includes oversight of Provincial and Municipal government.

Provincial Government

Executive- Provincial Governors are traditionally elected by the National Legislators representing that province. They have the right to appoint a provincial cabinet.

Legislative- Provincial governments have a Provincial Committee that presents concerns to the governor and controls the budget. Essentially as a check and balance the money the province raises through services and local taxes goes to the Provincial Committee, and a budget presented by a governor has to be approved by them.

Judiciary- the provincial judiciary is essentially representative of the National Judiciary--all judicial officials are appointed through the New Edomite Supreme Court. However the Provincial Committee gets to appoint two provincial justices and certain municipal ones, while the governor gets to appoint one to their two. The rest are appointed by approval of the Ecumenical Council of Churches.

Cities of New Edom

Cities are governed by City Councils chaired by a City Manager. The traditional title of Ethnarch is still used in some areas like Haran and Teman, while the Anglo title of Mayor is used in other parts. The city governments are directed in inter-municipal matters by the Provincial Governors, who are appointed by the National Government.

Bara Province, South Central Coast
Governor of Bara: Samuel Tannach

Bara is a fairly conservative province, predominantly populated by the ethnic Barans, a semitic people. They are mostly Apostolic Christians though there are sizeable minorities of the End Times Church and Baptists here. Compulsory nudity has been actively resisted, and Quality Bay, once a resort that pandered to nudists, is now counter-cultural, with people eagerly buying sexy dresses and bathing suits there.

Ethnarch: Jacob Onam
National Capital: Fineberg
Population: 2 million
Location: Southeast central coast, East Bara Province
Basic Description: Fineberg is a fairly affluent city, crime is low and it is beautiful with a warm climate and wide boulevards, lots of parks, cares, theaters. It is a city known for handsome gold courses, a nearby resort and casino, and a certain discreet sense of decadence. A large section of the city is industrial ports as well. ,

Provincial Capital:
Harbourtown
Ethnarch: Jethro Jarmith
Population: 1.5 million
Location: Southeast central coast, West Bara Province
Basic Description: A dirty and damaged and vibrant city, Harbourtown is known for a nearby resort community, for the relatively recent siege by monarchist forcesmduring the civil war, large numbers of foreigners from aid organizations, power outages and being New Edom's largest port and naval facility.

Cera Belis Healthcare Systems
Is one of the foremost healthcare systems in the world. In partnership with the government of the Allied States, it has begun implementing positive change in improving the national healthcare of the country. Below are public statements taken from the corporate website. General Administration offices are in Fineberg, New Edom; by government contract it provides medical health facilities throughout the country.

ImageImageImageImage


24 x Cera Belis Clinical Health Centers
Cera Belis made its name constructing low-cost medical clinics in rural areas without sufficient access to adequate medical care. Today, we have come full circle, innovating new technologies to bring hitherto deprived populations into the twenty-first century. Our medical clinics are custom built to match the aesthetic needs of each location, and provide adequate space for examination rooms, laboratories, office space, and radiological facilities. As with all of our facilities, complementary furnishings and equipment are provided free of charge.

12 x Cera Belis General Hospital Facilities
There is nothing more important than prompt medical care in a state of emergency. That's why we have spent over $10 Billion researching new technologies for usage in our hospital facilities. We boast state-of-the-art emergency, out-patient, palliative, and rehabilitative care in all of our facilities, and take pride in each unit's functionality. Custom-designed to each location for aesthetic value, our hospital facilities come replete with all the major modern amenities you would expect from a major metropolitan hospital: chapel service facilities, comfortable rooms, concierge service, flower gardens, gift shops, hospital restaurants, radiological equipment, and specialist wards. As with all of our facilities, complementary furnishings and equipment are provided free of charge.

4 x Cera Belis Mental Health Facilities
At Cera Belis, we believe that healing does not just encompass the body, but the mind as well. That's why we have devoted an entire division to producing first-class mental health facilities for your emotional and physical needs. We focus extensively not only on psychiatric health, but on therapeutic technologies and the latest in psychological treatments designed to keep you well in body and in mind. Our centers feature ample floor space for offices, lounges, and treatment rooms. As with all of our facilities, complementary furnishings and equipment are provided free of charge.

10 x Cera Belis Oncology Centers
Our corporation's namesake, Mrs. Cera Belis succumbed to breast cancer in 1902. From that point on, her husband Dr. Ria'ne Belis made it his life's goal to help develop treatments for various cancers. That tradition remains at the forefront of all that we go to do today. More than any other of our facilities, our attention to detail at our oncology centers is breathtaking and painstaking. Every inch of our facilities are designed to keep our patients comfortable and uplifted, even during their darkest trials. We design every facility to incorporate laboratory services, natural medicinal treatments, preventative treatment, radiological scanning and treatment, and spiritual care. Our cancer centers rank highest in New Azura for cancer survival rates! As with all of our facilities, complementary furnishings and equipment are provided free of charge.

10 x Cera Belis Pediatric Hospital Facilities
There is no cost too great to help protect the lives and well-being of our children. Cera Belis prides itself as an industry leader and flag bearer amongst all other Azuran pharmaceutical corporations for its commitment to pediatric health services. Our children's hospitals feature cutting edge technology that is at least five years ahead of the curve with competing hospital providers. Our pediatric facilities come replete with chapel services, comfortable suites in every room, in-room food delivery, outdoor and indoor recreational facilities, radiological laboratories, and specialist wards designed to keep your children happy, healthy, and safe. As with all of our facilities, complementary furnishings and equipment are provided free of charge.

8 x Cera Belis Women's Health Facilities
There is no adequate reason why women should be denied proper healthcare. That's why one of our newest divisions focuses on making women's health a top priority in our clinical facilities! Our centers specialize in all aspects of women's health, with laboratories and rooms specifically designed with women in mind. Clinical facilities are built to include adoption facilities, cancer screenings, prenatal care, reproductive therapy, and shelters for abused women and children. As with all of our facilities, complementary furnishings and equipment are provided free of charge.

The Protectorate of Gloria Regis

Postby New Edom » Sat Jan 21, 2012 11:04 pm

Republic of Gloria Regis

The islands are divided between control by the Cornellian Regency and the Allied States of New Edom. Approximately another 50 million people are under Cornellian control.

Population: 6 million.
Climate: Temperate to Tropical.
Government Style: Democratic Republic.
Economic Style: Socialist
Capitol City: Sixington
Official Languages: English, Esperanto.

Government:
Protector: Nelson Smith (Chairman of the Gloria Regis Communist Party)

Currently, government forces have had to step in as there has been fighting in the streets between members of the Communist and Fascist parties, though it has not prevented services or commerce as yet. The city of Sixington has claims to be a Free Port and is negotiating with the national government regarding this.

LoudMusicWench[/b], a somewhat popular sex magick cult that performs punk-goth rock and lives in a commune and advocates communard living. Matriarchal philosophers. (Feminist Pagan Collective Party) Sexy though middle aged Livia Barberina is the chief representative of this party and a member of the Senate.

The Communist Party: Run by Nelson Smith, a rather nice man who runs gardening collective and is the host of “Green Thumb”. Smith is not a member of the Senate because his party didn’t get enough votes. All 30 of them are kind of annoyed at this.

The Nazi Party: Run by the former Colin Quince, currently known as Rupprecht von Kurtz. Kurtz is a former Baptist minister who has a seat in the Senate. His latest nefarious scheme is the Great Bountiful Park Nazi Picnic Extravaganza!

The Christian Democrat Socialist Union Party: Led by Constanza Delmar. Constanza is a very serious and boring person, like almost everyone else in her party. While genuine conservatism has pretty much died out except among a handful of church groups and some senior military officers, they are the closest thing, with their suits and ties and their books and yattering about political reform. The CDSUP was, ironically, one of the political parties that started the Great Revolution and were helped by idealistic young military officers. Originally they took the country by storm led by a young blogger who is only known as Avenger6699. He got people really stirred up when economic disaster upon economic disaster rocked the country by starting a Facebook campaign. Unfortunately one day he logged off and was never heard from again. He made the CDSUP look like heroes at first, even though their websites to this day are so politically esoteric and thick with rhetoric and statistics that even their strongest adherents are bored by them. Without him they were reduced to what they had been before. Ironically they are something like the voice of reason now. The Lecks took over by using cunning sociology to take over political rallies and demonstrations and frankly sex as allure. Now they run the country. Go figure.

Intellectual Party: The “Lecks” short for “Intellectuals” are a bunch of weirdoes who believe in meditation, compulsory recycling, vegetarianism, nudism, hate science fiction even though they live it, all wear either short hair (men) or page boy haircuts (women) and wear translucent one piece jumpsuits that leave little to the imagination. They want to insist that everyone wear them. They all live in communal housing like the Feminists and have a stupid language that they made up themselves that the country refuses to adopt as its official language. They read boring history books that no one has ever heard of and grin and laugh too much.
The Lecks also had this brilliant idea of seizing control of the national bank and reordering all the wealth in the country, giving every person on their 18th birthday 100,000 and everyone else over that age the same. They won the election. Jason Cavanaugh and Elizabeth Hunter-Ross are the leaders of the Senate, basically styled Leader of the Senate and Majority Whip respectively.


Gloria Regis is a young country and relatively untroubled by border issues or anything like that. The main problems it has are juvenile delinquents, people who take advantage of the easygoing legal system and a group of crazed military rebels who live in the Desert Mountains. This group, the Nazarite Redemption Army, is led by a lunatic called Sam Daniel the Destroyer, who was formerly Daniel Patterson, a Major in the Army who went insane when two things happened:
1. The military, which were mostly draftees and foreigners, was largely demobilized after the Great Revolution.
2. His wife left him.

At the moment there are only 5,000 personnel in the Gloria Regis military anyway. The forces total consists of the following:

1. Navy, the senior service as it were. (for no really important reason) Consists of several patrol boats, a minesweeper and a helicopter frigate used as the flagship.
2. Air Force. Consists of a single flight of Tornado fighters, a couple of small observation planes, a helicopter squadron used for search and rescue and transport, 1 Lockheed Starlifter, and two official use aircraft: a Chinook helicopter used as the Presidential Helicopter and a DC-9 used as the Presidential Plane. There is also an anti-aircraft squadron at each major city.
3. A tank company, A Motorized Infantry Regiment, a Parachute Company, an engineer company and an artillery company.

As of the Glorious Revolution the New Military is fully integrated, which seems to cause a few issues. A handful of old hand NCOs and officers, desperate to at least have their people be somewhat trained, stayed on, but one issue is having a cadre to help with integration of the genders to the full extent required by the government orders and also the issue of what the military is going to be used FOR.

Senior Military Officers:
Lieutenant-General Hartford Crane (A depressed man. Crane used to be a brigadier-general in the army and had been all for integration—over time. He is very aware that the military is really just for patrolling against pirates, keeping the rebels at bay and the occasional peacekeeping mission, and unfortunately has a morass of bureaucracy and paperwork to deal with. There are nearly ten times as many civilian employees as there are actually people in uniform. Crane smokes a pipe and plays golf, he’s a decent guy.)

Admiral Donald Duke. (He hates his name. Admiral Duke also is the most senior officer around and acts like a crusty old salt even though he basically runs a two ship navy. He really wants a submarine and maybe an air craft carrier and…and…well at least he wants to keep the coastline free of pirates and drug smugglers. Duke is getting kind of old and lives in his palatial headquarters which unfortunately doesn’t work very well, the power keeps going out.)

Lieutenant-General Carmine Webber. (Air Force. Carmine Webber has flown helicopters, fighters and transports and likes to go to air shows. He’s a bit of a playboy (at least in his own mind) and is one of Dr. Convita’s cronies. He’d like to be immortal. Because of this he smuggles stuff into the country that Convita needs.)

In truth, the defense of Gloria Regis is done by the Allied States of New Edom. A division of National Marines, a Skyguard Regiment and a naval air station are posted there, and are solely concerned with the protection of the Archipelago as a whole. It is considered a good posting for the wonderful leave you get in decadent Sixington.


Police
A national police force called the Safety and Protection Group is much larger than the police with about 8,000 members who are rotational volunteers around a professional cadre. They are rarely issued lethal force but have tasers, pepper spray, net guns, dogs and riot sticks as well as intense personal combat training.

The SPG is run by a Committee of 23 people with a rotating Chairperson. It is de facto run by local Committee Representatives who are dubbed ComReps by the local cops.

ComRep Caldwell Fox is the one who runs the cops in the capitol. He is a career police officer who has decided he wants to be in the Leck Party because that’s where the power is at.

Public Transit
Electric cars are provided as services; there is a strict speed limit and there are only so many available. They work fairly well. There are also public service trains which service outlying urban areas and are a network in the country. Finally, there are electric buses that run regular routes.

Work
Building electric cars, recycling, food production and clothing production are main industries. Many people work for the government. The work week is short and so are the hours. Many people have personal crafts and private small collectives abound in the local distracts. There are no shoping centres or malls, though there are lots of markets, some of them seasonal.

Social Ethics
A certain percentage of the country is conservative, larger percentages are casual, and a small but strong minority are radical liberals. Use of some drugs is legal but has to be used in required areas. Some government areas have mandatory nudity or jumpsuit use.

Plato and Sappho University: A liberal arts and technology university that is actually pretty good, and hosts the research park where Doctor Convita’s weird and twisted lab is.

The best courses offered at Plato and Sappho University are economics, history, political science, science courses (it has excellent biology, chemistry and physics labs) and math. The art, literature and drama courses are heavily influenced by the Gender Studies department, which is considered to be a hot bed of radicalism by many Edomites and has enormous influence over the campus generally. In addition to this, a course called Premarital Development is required of all students attending.


For unknown reasons the dominant predator in the wilds of Gloria Regis is the Terror Bird, which someone survived extinction almost everywhere else and roams the forests and jungles. It is a handsome bird approximately seven to eight feet tall, with useless wings, enormous clawed feet and a terrifying beak capable of ripping a bullock's stomach open. (It actually says that in the entry in Lonely Planet--capable of ripping a bullock's stomach open.) They are the national animal and protected by law--hunting is illegal anyway but it's an even more serious crime to shoot a Terror Bird. Poaching is something of a problem, not so much because they have aphrodisiac, medicinal or culinary qualities, but because they make amazing trophies.


More history to follow, but to sum it up, Gloria Regis used to be the Royal Confederacy of the Serene Republics of Gloria Regis. In spite of the odd antiquated title, the supposed monarch had ceased to exist some time ago and in the centuries following the disappearance of the royal family a Republic had risen which was essentially by recent times an oligarchical government elected by family heads. It had sold the country out entirely to corporations which had only not deforested the highlands because they somehow just hadn't gotten around to it. When the mines ran out and the fishing ran out most of the corporations bailed out completely except for one which was prospecting for oil and uranium. Unemployment, lack of benefits and disillusion with the government resulted in riots.

The rest is pretty much well known in popular books and movies. The Lecks seized control from the confused Socialist Party, promised everyone a share of the National Bank's revenues, put the ever empty Regal Throne in a museum and took over the country. To everyone's relief they managed to get the country's name changed to something simpler.

Later the Republic signed a pact with the Allied States of New Edom for shared defense and foreign involvement. Generally the Government of the Allied States tends to leave confusing Gloria Regian politics alone.

The Protectorate of Etruria Majora

Postby New Edom » Sun Jan 22, 2012 5:04 pm

Etruria Majora Factbook

Population: 45 million
Government Style: Republic
Head of State: Dictator of the Republic (always New Edom's appointed military commander, who rubber stamps anything that doesn't interfere with New Edom's defense and foreign policy.)
Head of Government: The Consuls Garmen Cotta and Lucas Modesto

Note: Etruria Majora is actually a divided province, partly controlled by Nordkrusen forces that have occupied that area since the 1860s. In spite of attempts to free Etruria Majora from this without a major war it cannot be regained. Nordkrusen claims the territory because of an ancient Imperial decree from the time of the Cornellian Empire. There have been small wars since the 19th Century, though the last was in the 1980s and only lasted five days. Because of generations of built up and constantly improved defenses on both sides (from barbed wire and trenches in the early 1900s to EW patrols and tracking systems in the present) without a massive bombardment campaign or bloody and costly invasion it would be difficult to change the situation.

Countryside

Northern Etruria Majora: This is the only part of the country that is significantly forested. It is here that a lot of mining takes place; small mining towns dot the landscape. There is a large army base and air force base here which patrol and maintain certain fortified positions in the area.

Eastern Etruria Majora is dominated by rocky coastline, cliffs and windswept hills and pastureland in the interior. This is where Narva is located along with a number of small fishing towns and industrial towns; towards the interior lies Heliopolis.

Western Etruria Majora can be rather marshy on the coastline. The interior has some very beautiful farming country. Port Autovia is located here.

Southern Etruria Majora is sunny and warm and very pleasant. It is where a lot of the smaller cities and towns are located. This region is dedicated more to business, pleasure and the service industries. Calafia on the coast, Reme north of Calafia.

Port Autovia: Main port city, pop 8 million. Port Autovia is a vibrant busy city full of people doing business, industry and tourism. It is a handsome city with many large forums, and still has ancient aqueducts on view. It is the site of a major Nordkrusen combined arms military base. Important areas include the Temple of Proteus and the Quaestor Palace. Public transport is very popular. There are handsome beaches adjacent to the city.It has an international airport as well.

Reme: 15 million people. The capital of Etruria Majora is named for the noble ancestor Remus who was suckled by a she-wolf. It is a beautiful city from certain vantage points, also rather dirty and dangerous at others. Parts of it are noble domed temples, palaces, and the Great Arena where stock car races, gladiatorial matches, concerts and other events take place. It is the site of the Curia where most government business is legislated, the Fields of Triumph where most of the parades and such take place, and of a large river docking area. Crime is a problem in Reme; scarcely a day goes by without a mugging or carjacking. It is the site of a large army barracks. There are many museums and concert halls in Reme as well. International and air force airports. (central Etruria Majora)

Calafia: 6 million people. The jewel of southern Etruria Majora, Calafia is a lovely tourist attraction, full of beautiful sugar sand beaches, casinos, pink hotels and swinging hot spots. It has handsome botanical gardens, one of the best zoos in Xanadou, Ocean World with its famous synchronized porpoises, and an observatory. Calafia’s most significant place is the spas; there are several health spas here ranging from ones that are fairly affordable to a middle class tourist to ones that are for the rich and famous. It has a small capacity for larger ships, though it has mostly focused on freighters and ocean liners. There is an international airport.

Narva: 11 million people. Narva is the northernmost city in Etruria Majora. It is largely an industrial city focused on automotives and smelting plants. Dirty, vibrant and expanding, it is the least classical of Etruria Majora’s cities, looking grim and industrial except for some deliberate efforts at maintaining a sense of classicism. However the domed temples and palaces are dwarfed by skyscrapers and factories. It is not far from an air force base and an army base. There is an international airport. Narva is also the hub of mining activity in the province. It is occupied by Nordkrusen.

Heliopolis: 5 million people. Heliopolis is the most agrarian focused of Etruria Majora’s cities, and is the site of an agricultural college. It is in south central Etruria Majora and is surrounded mostly by farming estates and small towns. It has a large commercial airport and is a railway hub.



Etruria Majora’s culture is overwhelmingly classical in origin, though many modern aspects of culture have slipped in. The people tend to be fractious, argumentative and enjoy a good debate. They view themselves as the heirs of an ancient and proper culture and snigger at the barbaric New Edomites who are their protectors.

Generally speaking Etruria Majora is a rather chauvinistic culture, though in the last thirty years this has been seriously challenged. The basis of society is a father, mother and children, with the father dominating the family. Feminist organizations have attacked this model, and more and more women are choosing careers outside the home.

Foreign customs are often tolerated but regarded with genial contempt. Etrurians love spectacles, gathering in public cafes or market squares to gossip, plot and do business, love to eat and drink good food, and love a good argument or brawl. Attitudes towards the law are most often ‘keep it in the family’. This can lead to vendettas which sometimes need the interference of the state.

Etruria Majora is 48% Etrurian Pagan, 22% Christian of various denominations, 20% Mystery Cults, 11 % Jewish, 9% other.


Etruria Majora is a Republic governed by magistrates elected by the Senate. The current ruling party is the Populist Democratic Party. It is led by two Consuls who are supposed to cooperate in theory; generally they tend to either divide responsibilities, quarrel, or else one works and the other doesn’t. Serving them are a group of elected officials called Praetors, Quaestors and Aediles. Nominally it is led by a Duke who is the highest ranking military official in the land. This is always a New Edomite, though such an official is only appointed in time of war, and only has powers over the country as concerning defense or aggression against enemies.

The Senate consists of 600 elected officials who are chosen by Centuries (Assemblies of the People). The Senate is kept ‘honest’ by a group of officials called the People’s Tribunes, who can veto legislation which doesn’t appear to be in the Republic’s best interests. This can lead to union style strangleholds, but corruption and infighting tend to keep it more interesting than that.


Religion

The primary religion of Etruria Majora is the Divine Concord, which is a compact of various faiths that support the state. However one of the most important cults within it is of Arioch Blessed and Good. Arioch Blessed and Good is the primary form of state worship; military oaths, business oaths and binding legal matters are sworn in the name of Arioch Blessed and Good. The general belief is that strength and cleverness are the most necessary attributes for successful life. A member of the Senate also serves as Rex Sacrorum of the Cult...or in the modern sense, Rex Regina as well.

Department of Transport

Postby New Edom » Mon Feb 20, 2012 4:27 am

Minister of Transport:Admiral Charles Rand.
Image
Admiral Rand is one of the wealthiest and most senior officers in the New Edomite military, and was former Minister of Defense, Director of the New Edomite half of a joint satellite launch program with Lamoni, Director of Defense Research and Commander of the Western Fleet.
David Aurangzeb
Image
The Minister was till recently Ethnarch of Sterry in Haran, and the second in command of the Free Congress leadership in the province. He is considered an energetic and effective leader, diplomatic and a good planner. Some have criticized the fact that he is the second member of the Haranese branch of the Free Congress to hold the position of Minister of Transport, implying that it is a sop to Augrim, the Governor of Haran.


The Ministry supervises the following Directorates:
1. Griffon Airlines (which is the nation's national airline, dealing with passenger and cargo/mail flights. It mostly deals with New Edomite travel but also some inter-Xanadou travel. For the most part New Edomites use corporate airlines when traveling farther abroad.)

2. Directorate of Roads (dedicated to maintaining and constructing New Edom's roads and bridges.)

3. Directorate of Rail Transport.

In addition to these Griffon Airlines has 20 C-160 Transalls used as cargo delivery planes.

New Edom has the following main road systems:
1. Edom Island Highway System Sub-Directorate
2. Protectorate of Gloria Regis Dept of Transport System
3. Protectorate of Etruria Majora Dept of Transport System
4. Blackland Highway System Sub-Directorate
5. Fernmag Highway System Sub-Directorate
6. Magline Highway System Sub-Directorate (this is actually run by the Ministry of Defense but reports status to the Ministry of Transport)

Edom Island Sub-Directorate
The main 8 lane highways, going north to south, east to west and crossing the center of the island are called the "A" system. The A-1 goes north to south, the A-2 through the center, the A-3 east to west. They fell into neglect during the civil war, but a large work project has largely restored them by now. Highway lights exist along all main highway systems.

Each Province has a tributary system. Four lane highways are assigned two digits, two lane highways three digits, while country lanes and dirt roads are more often given local names.

Alpha-Numerical naming of the road systems is as follows:
Bara Province - 1 (so main 4 lane tributaries off the 8 lane highways is 10, 11, 12, 14; 2 lane highways are 110, 111, 112, 114, etc)
Raith Immel Province - 2
Teman Province - 3
Haran Province - 4
Lookinghaven Province- 5

The Protectorates and Outer Provinces

There is a similar system in each Province and Protectorate outside of Edom Island except that the first letter of the provincial or protectorate name is added rather than "A". The Protectorate of Etruria Majora has 2 8 lane highways. The Protectorate of Gloria Regis only has 4 lane highways as the larger highway system.

Urban Roads
Urban roads vary. Larger cities generally have decent roads, though road maintenance is poor in certain provinces. Traffic lights and speed limits are a concern--of all the territories in New Edom only Gloria Regis actually has speed limits. Road travel in New Edom can be a free for all unless military traffic is on the road.

Personal Transport in New Edom
Most of New Edom's people do not own their own car or truck. Usually car pooling, typically done among families, business communities, churches and so on is done. The sense of private ownership about vehicles is usually limited to the rich or upper middle class. If one sees cars drag racing along a public highway it is almost guaranteed that the people doing it are well off--others are wary and drive carefully as they only partly own vehicles. It is not uncommon for several people to purchase a car or truck together and share it for transportation or business purposes. Riemaian produces most of the Lada type civilian vehicles purchased in New Edom--because there are several automotive factories of Riemaian ownership in the country, they are the cheapest vehicles to buy.

Bicycles and motorbikes are more common. Many kids in New Edom dream of owning a dirt bike or motorcycle to compete in Motor Jousting with.

New Edomite Rail Directorate is one of the largest employers in the country, with almost a million employees. The railways carry over 30 million passengers and 2.8 million tons of freight daily. The NERD owns over 240,000 (freight) wagons, 60,000 coaches and 9,000 locomotives. New Edom's current locomotives and cars were produced by Karlberg Industries AB and Home Retailers, and all facts and figures regarding their stock are from their website.

Inter-City Trains
These are trains that connect cities in the fastest time possible, by passing all intermediate stations. The train used for this purpose in New Edom is the K-5 Pendolino, of which there are 2,000.

The K-5 Pendolino is a high speed inter-city train. They are electric multiple units using state-of-the-art tilting train pendolino technology and built by Karlberg Industries AB with technological co-operation from Aurora Technologies of Estainia. These trains have proven to be successful in terms of speed and have a record of being no more than 15 seconds late in Eslovakia. They can operate at fast speeds whilst being under safe conditions. They are also an eco-friendly way of transporting citizens around the country which helps reduce the C02 emissions.

The K-5 Pendolino can be coupled to Sleeper cars, Bistro Cars (Cafe), Quiet Zone Cars, First Class cars as well as Luggage Cars.

Car Length: 23.9 m (78 ft 5 in) intermediate cars, 25.1 m (82 ft 4 in) cab cars

Capacity: 145 first class seats, 294 standard class seats *(Subject to modification)

Width: 2.73 m (8 ft 11 in)

Height: 3.56 m (11 ft 8 in)

Doors: Hinged Plug, electrically driven

Maximum Speed: 160 mph (257 km/h)

Weight: 466 Tonns

Gauge: 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in) *(Note that this can be changed to suit your country's current gauges.)

Electric system(s): 25 kV 50 Hz AC

Method of Collection: Overhead Pantographs.

Braking system(s): Regenerative, Rheostatic, Disc

Commuter Trains
At the moment Fineberg, Reme, Sixington, Lookinghaven, Harbourtown and Sterry are set up with commuter trains. The best ones are the [spoiler=Karlberg X60 Pendeltag]of which there are 100.
Each car is 107 meters (351 feet) long and consists of six articulated portions. Each car can seat 374 and take 530 standees. Two such cars coupled together make up a full-length train. It is easy to go through the entire car to find an empty seat, or to move if one part of the car is crowded, and the design also provides visibility through the length of the car, which EL's (Ekaterinberg Lokalstrafik) passenger surveys found was important in order to help passengers feel safe. EL has also specified lower backrests in the X60 to improve visibility all the way through the car.

Boarding and alighting from the new train is intended to be much easier than doing so on the older commuter train stock in Eslovakia. At each door, and in 92% of each car, the floor is at the same level as the station platforms. This means a significant quality improvement for all passengers but particularly for the mobility-impaired.


The train is built in accord with the nominal platform height specified in the Eslovakian Railway Administration's standards. The Administration has begun a project to correct the heights of non-conforming platforms, but even before all the platforms have been fixed, passengers will notice a significant improvement in the form of a much lower floor height compared to the current stock, making boarding and alighting much easier than before. In each car there are "flexible areas" that have room for wheelchairs, baby carriages and bicycles.

Another new feature is that the trains are equipped with air conditioning in both the passenger and cab areas. The seats have been designed in collaboration with leading ergonomists and representatives for EL passengers.

All cars have security cameras installed, just like the new Ekaterinberg metro cars; this can contribute to increased security. Naturally, other safety details have also been carefully worked out, not least fire safety, with the use of non-inflammable and self-extinguishing materials.

Bara Province: A Detailed Look

Postby New Edom » Tue Jul 10, 2012 8:23 am

Bara Province: A Detailed Look

Roughly 6 million people live in Bara Province.
- 3 million Barans:
The semitic Baran people are of three main types: Plains Barans (who are the most traditional among them), Town Barans (the largest Baran Population) and Temanite Barans.

Baran culture is traditionally Apostolic Christian mingled with ancestor worship, is patriarchal and devoted to animal husbandry and herd raiding. Among plainsmen this is merely ceremonial; among Town Barans this is forgotten and almost embarrassing; among Temanites it is preserved as a form of rowdiness.

Temanite Barans form the larger population of New Edomites in places like Teman and Raith Immel, and are rural people with a generally modern outlook on life and a faint contempt for non-Barans. Family lineage is important to them.

Barans form the largest populations in Teman, East Bara, Glasstower and northern Lookinghaven. Aristocratic families retain ancient titles which are given as a courtesy. The Obed, Shalmaneser, Tubal-Cain and Pahath-Moab families claim princely titles which are acknowledged for their long service to the country. Since the Obed family used to rule the country, many Monarchists refer to the head of that family as "King", though most non-Barans have stopped doing it. The Barans tend to form the largest part of the officer corps in the military.

- 30,000 Niradle Elwe ('Marsh' Elwe populating parts of lower Raith Immel along the Silver River bordering Haran; 'Marsh' Elwe are considered barbaric and decadent by the Haranese and Barans in the region and are discriminated against. They are mostly fisherfolk and farmers.)

- 300,000 Haranese. Haranese are an olive skinned semitic people who follow a strange mix of Christianity and pagan religion which has for centuries existed under the patronage of the Catholic Archbishop of Fineberg. Belief in magic as a necessity to deal with demons which control weather and plagues is common among the rural Haranese, who are most often farmers, fishermen and oil industry labourers. The largest Haranese population is in the city of Sterry, Haran Province. Smaller populations exist in Fort Necessity and Gone.

- 2.5 million Naturalized Edomites: African 10%
Sorgen immigrants fleeing persecution in Ascelonia in the Tyrrhenia region are dark skinned people who mostly have curly hair, broad features. Those Sorgen families which were highly educated or skilled formed alliances with Baran families and although little intermarriage took place are highly respected as a cultured class. Sorgen families without such skills live mostly in Harbourtown and Lookinghaven as part of the labouring class. They tend to be of various Christian denominations. In addition to this people from Liberia form a significant part of this population.

Oriental10%
Mostly of Ani origin, these people have also interbred, though in some cases have maintained long standing communities in major cities. While they have a sense of cultural attachment to their ancestral homeland, most of them consider themselves Edomites and would be astonished to be called anything else.

Anglo-German80%
Mostly people from parts of Cornellia and other parts of the world including Nordkrusen, Estovakia, Riemaia--technically not Anglo-German but the term has stuck. They also see themselves as Edomites, and as a prominent part of the population at times resent being condescended to by Barans or Haranese. They range from the old fashioned peasant population of Lookinghaven and Teman who till a couple of generations ago still lived in the early 19th century to ultra modern people living in big cities.

FORUM IDUMAEUM MALL
Image

Roman mall magnate Lucius Galerius has announced his formal request for permission from the Allied States of New Edom, the Province of Bara, and the City of Fineberg to construct a vast new anticipated Forum Idumaeum, a super-mall containing predominantly Edomite shops (especially local vendors) in the capital city of New Edom. It is expected to employ some 3,000 to 7,000 people, mostly locals, and invest a staggering 15.8 million solidi in Roman capital in the Edomite economy. Having been granted permission by the New Edomite Department of Works, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Commerce and the Director-General of the Bank of New Edom, it will dwarf the Grittonian Ubermall set up by that nation in the sheer scale of its investment in the Edomite private sector, as well as it contribution to both the Roman and Edomite national treasuries in terms of tax revenue (especially the latter, due to the anticipated sales and/or VAT revenue from such transactions conducted on Edomite soil).

The following stores are to be featured in the mall:
Sakura Japanese Cuisine
Cute Bunny Burger
CoolBucks Coffee House
Optimis Cibariis Restaurants
Gallina Tropical Restaurants
Grinod Restaurants
Karlberg Home Retailers (Home Furnishings Stores)
Williamson Goods Corporation (Household Goods)
Forza Automotive Company
Arjuna Tea Services

Office of Complaints and Concerns

The Government of the Allied States, in the interest of international cooperation have decided to open the doors of our already existing national administrative complaint department to the international sphere. It is our intention improve what we can concerning our international administrative duties on behalf of peace, and so we will allow for feedback from all nations around the world rather than merely our citizens.

Forward complaints against High Council employees to the Office of Foreign Affairs in writing. A Department form is required, and the complaint should include:
- the names and titles of the individuals suspected of misconduct,

- the details of the allegations including case names or situations,

- any other relevant information,

- copies of any documentation pertaining to the matter.


Directly mailed information goes to the office of the Director of the Office of Complaints and Concerns as follows:

Jabez Lech, Director of the Office of Complaints and Concerns
274 Mizpah Street , Department of Administration, Suite 927
Fineberg, Government District Mu 125539

Code: Select all
[b]Name:[/b]
[b]Nation:[/b]
[b]Describe the situation:[/b]
[b]What caused the situation?:[/b]
[b]How you were affected?:[/b]
[b]Additional Comments:[/b]
