I consider it a moral victory. We have broken him completely. :P

The Imperial Government

Conclusion of 12th Foundation Anniversary Celebrations


Image

On 29th October 2005, Emperor Lucius created The Land of Kings and Emperors. Yesterday, the LKE closed two weeks of celebrations marking the momentous occasion of our founding and the following twelve years in which the LKE has changed the NationStates world.

The celebrations commenced on the day of the anniversary with a opening address from His Supreme Majesty The Emperor. This was followed by speeches from His Supreme Highness The Crown Prince, His Imperial Highness The Prince Imperial, the Lord High Steward, the Lord Chancellor, the Prime Minister and the President of the Imperial Senate. The celebrations then closed with an address from the guest of honour, Her Nordic Majesty Rach Eriksen, Queen of Balder, a close ally of the LKE. The speakers reflected on LKE history, the meaning of the anniversary and the LKE's place in the world today. A particular focus was the LKE's contributions to global security since we celebrated our tenth anniversary in October 2015, presiding over the final defeat of the FRA in 2016 and leading the free world in opposition to the continued threat to independence and sovereignty posed by the Order of the Grey Wardens in 2017.

To provide a permanent commendation of the anniversary, the celebratory event was accompanied by the introduction of the Westiana Prize, named after His Grace The Duke of Locha, Westiana Crassus. This is a joint venture between the Imperial Crown and the Ministry of the Interior. His Grace is a former Crown Prince and five-time Prime Minister of the LKE, and a trusted confidant of two Emperors. He retired from public service in August 2012. Westiana is most notable for commanding imperial forces at the March 2006 Battle of Munster. On that occasion, the Imperial Army crushed the combined might of the the RLA, ADN and RKKA as they attempted to 'liberate' Munster, a protectorate of the RLA region Ireland. Munster today remains an LKE dominion. The Westiana Prize shall be awarded to members of the next generation of the LKE as they emulate Westiana's civic, political and military accomplishments.

Well, seems I wasn't wrong about y'all trying to make TGW your rebound rivalry after the FRA broke up with you. Might need to move on though, we're not interested, and are more into rivals who actualy know how to have fun.

The LKE Today

December 2017, Issue 174
New Discord - Interviews with Statesmen - Military Academy


Regional Discord Server Opened


Last month the Imperial Government opened the official LKE Discord server to the public. The announcement came from Interior Minister, Thomas Insaniac, where it was well received from the citizenry. This comes after discussions were held with members of the Imperial Council and Monarchy, where it was agreed this new innovation will prove beneficial to our regional culture and general gameplay.

In the weeks since its release, the LKE Discord has seen healthy activity with a number of citizens, peers and foreign ambassadors registered. The Imperial Government continues to utilize the server in managing the affairs of the realm. It also appears the instant communication between members of the region has helped encourage newcomers to join the forums and comfortably adjust to regional life. As membership to the Discord continues to improve and new initiatives being discussed, the region looks forward to the future of the server as a prominent resource in regional culture and integration.

The Imperials...Lions, Phoenix, Wolves..Oh my!


Faction Avenue has seen an increase in traffic lately with two new parties recently forming, the Phoenix Faction and the Wolf Pact. The two parties come after years of the Imperial Party and Lion Party dominating the political culture of the realm and essentially the seat of government, Number 27. The LKE Today interviewed the new party leaders to discuss their platforms and where they hope to take the region.

Earlier last month, the Minister of the Interior, Thomas Insaniac formed The Phoenix Faction, releasing its December Platform outlining their objectives for the month. Mr. Insaniac explained, "We constantly seek to be active and update our position to reflect the shifting perspective of our regions. We have published a December platform and will try to AT LEAST publish one for every election cycle." One of the goals listed in their platform, namely the launch of the Discord server, has become a great success, however the party has voiced a new focus. Mr. Insaniac expressed that under a Phoenix Faction government, topping the agenda would be the "renewal and enforcement" of the World Assembly Delegate Act. "We would try to call for elections for that position, codify regular elections into the law, and promote the delegacy into a top position in our government with the prestige, and more importantly responsibilities, attached." He continued, "furthermore, the re-creation of the LKE world map and RP guidelines will also be another major objective we must see occur." As the Interior Minister, the Phoenix Faction Leader continues friendly "interactions with the gameside community," with the hope "to get more of them active in our off-site community."

Most recently the Baron of Crescent, Prime Minister Edward Epistre, resigned from the Lion Party forming the Wolf Pact. The Prime Minister stated, "while the other parties are more focused on matters of statecraft, the Wolf Pact is unique in the sense that it puts great focus on the Imperial Army." Under a Wolf Pact government the Prime Minister described the top objectives would be to, "encourage enlistment and activity in the Imperial Army, increase the number of cultural events and civil awards, and look to increasing the useage of Discord within the realm." While addressing the upcoming elections and goals for the term, Prime Minister Epistre shared, "I hope to maintain my position as Prime Minister, and sufficiently communicate with the other parties to form an effective agenda."

Imperial Command Creates Military Academy


The distinguished history of our Imperial Army dates back to the early years of the LKE. Throughout its history and great achievements, the army has seen many of NationStates skilled and experienced officers counted among its ranks. To nurture the skill of the force, the Imperial Command announced the establishment of the Kelkia Military Academy as the premier institution for military education.

The academy provides soldiers with an introduction to NationStates gameplay and military tactics practiced by the Imperial Army. In addition to the academy, the Command released the new Imperial Army Training Manual to serve as a guide to all members of the service, along with an officer training program that will allow for soldiers to graduate to the rank of an officer.

General Theoden Sebastian appointed the Adjutant-General, Lt. Gen. Linkin Talleyrand to oversee the development of the institution as the first Commandant of the Kelkia Military Academy. In a statement General Sebastian said, "Because of his efforts, our soldiers can count a worthy institution to assist them with their professional growth as members of one of the most fiercest and well-known military forces in the game." Emperor Onder added, "The Adjutant-General is to be commended for his vision and effort in putting this military academy into place."

The General concluded sharing the mission of the institution, "The Kelkia Military Academy will serve only to better arm our men and women with the necessary skill and strategies to continually emerge victorious in all our missions."

Election Mania!


The Land of Kings and Emperors has seen another election season come to a close on December 9th. After the Emperor dissolved the preceding session of the Imperial Senate, following advice from the Prime Minister and Senator Vedant Madan. The new elections were fiercely contested as new political parties sought to stake their claims, independents sought representation for themselves, and the Lion Party tried to hold onto their majority. A total of seven different candidates put themselves into the ring for this election and when the dust settled only five remained. Of those five, three were members of the Lion Party and the opposition consisted of a Phoenix Faction member and a Wolf Pact member. Nick Powell, leader of the Lion Party, was quickly elected Prime Minister. However, in a surprise move Edward Epistre of the Wolf Pact was elected to President of the Imperial Senate unanimously. Ultimately every fierce competition must have losers. Both independents were not elected to the Imperial Senate, however, Kaiserholt has been tapped to serve as the Minister of Culture and we wait to see where Bobracha will end up. The region watches this iteration of the Imperial Senate with great hope for what they will accomplish.


Political Zoo?


The political landscape of the LKE has changed greatly within the last month and now it is much more animalistic? As the formerly dominant Imperial Party faded, two new bright organizations have taken its place. The Wolf Pact, founded by former Prime Minister and current Senator Edward Epistre, and the Phoenix Faction, founded by Minister of Communications and Senator Thomas Insaniac, now join the Lion Party in the forefront of LKE politics. All the parties being named after animals has not gone unnoticed and this reporter hopes that the names will not reflect actual behavior of the politicians. Nevertheless, the new political parties have shaken up the dynamic and forced the dominant parties to either react or fade into history. Only time can tell how these parties will influence the future of the LKE and NationStates as a whole.


The Next Imperial Generation


The 5th of December was a momentous day in the history of the LKE. On this day the Prince Imperial in his post as Adjutant-General of the Imperial Armed Forces announced the creation of the Kelkia Military Academy. Named in honor of the most decorated military commander in the history of the LKE and our present Emperor. The Kelkia Military Academy will serve to educate the next generation of Imperial Officers and Soldiers in the art of NationStates military gameplay. The establishment of the Kelkia Military Academy will guarantee the LKE the maintenance of pre-eminent position on the ever changing NationStates battlefield. It will allow new recruits to attain the rank of officer quickly and efficiently and will be overseen by Prince Imperial Linkin Talleyrand. It will surely be a boon to the LKE's military presence.


The Future is in Discord

November was a momentous month for the LKE community as we officially launched our official community server. The LKE has had a long history of NationStates and NationStates has had a long history in relying in offsite communication. From the very forums we use, to IRC channels to Skype, and now the LKE has embraced the community migration to Discord. The adoption of Discord has come about as a collaboration between The Monarchy and The Imperial Government. For their service, our former Minister of the Interior was awarded an Order of Achievement for his role in bringing out the Discord server. Now the Imperial Senate debates the best rules and regulations to govern our region and its Discord server.

Actually yes, but that is intentional to a point.

The LKET (what Linkin posted) is an internal newspaper and is distributed on our forums and this thread only. The foreign update (which Aelbarrow posted) is distributed among the embassies and consulates which the LKE hold in foreign regions and once again this thread. They are intended for different audiences mainly and they overlap here, so the information overlaps too.

Since one is the foreign update and one is the LKET, they are fundamentally different things. And even though the information does overlap in this case, different information is often presented due to the schedules not overlapping. Finally, as much as I would like to, we're not forcing you to read it. :P

Imperator Noster

Ten years ago he first ascended, eight years ago he rebuilt us, seven years ago he ascended and never descended. That is until today. December 20th shall forever be remembered in the history of The Land of Kings and Emperors and NationStates. For it is the day our Emperor Onder Kelkia has announced his intention to abdicate the throne of the LKE. The Emperor will abdicate during January 2018 and assume the position of Emperor Emeritus.

Emperor Onder has faithfully served the LKE in the greatest capacity since time immemorial. His Supreme Majesty has served in countless positions within our government ranging from the premiership to ambassadorships to his current position as our glorious Emperor. The Emperor is the only individual to hold the Conquest Medal among his countless awards for service, and we will never forget what he has done for us.

The Imperial Family has planned the abdication of our Emperor for nearly a year now. Our Crown Prince Theoden Sebastian has been prepared and he is an individual of notable distinction in his own right. His Supreme Highness possesses a decorated history in our executive, serving as Prime Minister eight times, and an even more dedicated history in the Imperial Army where he is the Chief of the Imperial General Staff. He has faithfully served the LKE for over six years and we place the utmost faith in him as our Emperor’s successor. Behind him sits our Prince Imperial Linkin Talleyrand, a respected and talented individual, and the Guardian Council of the LKE.

The Emperor announced his impending abdication to the general public in a fantastic speech delivered from his palace. In this speech, His Supreme Majesty reaffirmed everything we hold true about The Land of Kings and Emperors. Our fantastic and storied history. Our glorious military exploits throughout NationStates. He placed special emphasis on the status of the LKE as the premier imperialist region of NationStates. Our commitment to our military, to our history, and our refusal to abandon our foundations has allowed us to conquer our enemies in the past and will grant us the ability to conquer our enemies in the future. May they tremble before us.

TERRA REGUM IMPERATORUMQUE TOTUM MUNDUM REGET

When you first told me of your intention to abdicate and retire from NationStates politics in general, it was great sadness and worry that enveloped me. One would think that the heir of the most powerful and well known imperialist region in all of NS history will smile with glee, at the thought of now being able to take the most coveted place in all of the Imperialist world. But such was not my feeling. Even now.

Do not mistake me, for I am extremely grateful for this unique privilege to serve The Land of Kings and Emperors. And when I was told of the things that will be set in motion, I have tried with my utmost best to prepare myself for the new role that I am to play. Nor has my faith in our future faltered. In fact, I am confident that some of our best years are still ahead of us, that the LKE will see a revival and growth worthy of its distinction as leader and bastion of the Imperialist sphere.

Still, there is sadness. A great era will be coming to an end. When I first joined NS Gameplay in late 2011, you were a towering figure in the Imperialist world for many years already. You were the champion of Imperialism, leading the LKE as Emperor and The New Inquisition as Crown Prince. You still are. In the latter region, you also served as Commander of The New Inquisition Armed Forces where you masterfully orchestrated the invasion of Belgium and of The Rejected Realms, victories that in my view remain unmatched in tactical genius and skillful execution. Of course, this is just two of your countless military achievements. But, they are easily my favorite. As a young imperialist then, I felt great pride because I was part of a movement that was unstoppable. As was the man leading it.

There are of course, countless more to mention, and in other regions you have been part of. But of all the regions you called home, it is your time as Emperor of the LKE which will forever be remembered. You stood watch as the Empire grew, declined and survived. You held so many positions in our government, serving in the legislative, executive and judicial branches and in them you crafted policies and implemented projects which allowed the Empire to grow not only in terms of numbers, but also in terms of substance. You vigorously fought our enemies, in the public arena and the fields of battle, no matter who they were, how many their numbers. Indeed, at times you were the lone voice that countered their lies, their fabrications, their hypocrisy. Yet it was your voice, that drowned theirs, silencing them to humiliating defeat. You have maintained our forums, and with them, our shared history and traditions. We are able to embrace and take pride in our heritage because you saw fit to teach the many generations of where we have been. Our traditions, forged years ago, continue to enliven our political and cultural scene because of your faithfulness to them.

And that is why I worry. While I mean not to disregard nor deny the equally important contributions of other LKE leaders and members through the years, I realize that in many respects, the LKE of today is Onder. And Onder is the LKE. What will become of us if the Emperor Onder is no more? But then, here you are, as you have always done, reminding us that the LKE is and will always be more than just one person. Bigger than you. Bigger than me. Bigger than any one of us. That the LKE will continue to do as it has always done, prevail. That while we face new enemies, while we struggle with new challenges at home and abroad, our quest remains the same.

As you prepare to serve the LKE in a new capacity, I join our electors and other players around the NS world in praising your many years of service as a Monarch, Government Leader, Politican, Lawmaker, Military Commander and Intelligence Director. Few individuals have the singular distinction of being so associated with renowned regions, even fewer may claim the honor of having truly changed the game. You are both. Your achievements not only helped the regions you became part of, but more so drastically defined how we see and approach NS gameplay. Indeed, your greatest legacy will be having shaped and embodied Imperialism in the form we know it today. Trust that we will guard this legacy you have bequeathed us and continue to fight for it.

I find solace in knowing that while you step down, you will not really be gone. I and future generations of LKE leaders will still rely on you for your wisdom and assistance.

Hail Emperor Onder, who shall forever be known and celebrated by the epithet Onder the Conqueror!

I will be asking the government to establish a committee that will organize activities to formally recognize the Emperor's achievements as well as the program for my coronation next year. Other announcements relative to the future direction of the monarchy and the region will also be made later on as we go into the formal transition process. The region can rest assured that the Emperor, the Prince Imperial, Lord High Steward and myself will be in close coordination during this period to iron out details for the abdication of the Emperor and my accession to the imperial office.

Lastly, I wish to thank everyone who voiced their support for me. I offer myself to the LKE, to serve honor and protect it as the Emperor Onder had done through the many many years. Please join me, help me, as we lead the LKE to its next great chapter. We are all successors to imperialism. May we prove ourselves worthy.

What a historic announcement. He may have had differences with many people (myself included) but he will be missed in the LKE. Great leader, orator, and legal mind. The Kingdom of Great Britain extends its best wishes to the LKE.

I am sure the new Crown Prince will soon enjoy the fruits of the LKE.
