ZNN News Election Update - Luparia and Lusos
Image


"Welcome back everyone to Zellatian News Network's coverage of the Fifth Zellatian National Election. As always, I'm Beatrice ZeTreppe and joining me is Sir Ezerek Neuhauser. Next up is two of the larger, agriculturally minded provinces, Luparia and Lusos. Lets get this started, shall we?"

"Of course," Sir Ezerek said, "First up is Luparia, the Footstone of Conquerors. Historically, invasions of the Zellatian heartland came from Luparia and Zelatun itself was sacked a number of times by the peoples who lived here, though they have long assimilated post our own conquest. Lets see how they vote!"

Luparia - Rural Seats - 7 Seats
TSP: 4 Seats
CRP: 2 Seats
ZMP: 1 Seat

Luparia - Special Seats - 6 Seats
ZCP: 3 Seats
GP: 3 Seats

Nunelei - Urban Seats - 7 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats
CRP: 1 Seat
UDP: 1 Seat

"The Uneleian people of Nunelei and the surrounding countryside are one of the three groups that have historically called Luparia, also known as the Valley of the Hunters, for time immemorial. The area has always been historically conservative, unlike Dragoshi, who inhabit the area around Dragosh and are closely related to the peoples of the Lusos valley, who are more modate."

Dragosh - Urban Seats - 21 Seats
UDP: 8 Seats
ZMP: 6 Seats
CRP: 3 Seats
ZPP: 2 Seats
DCP: 2 Seats

"Last of the trio of cities, Lupeia, is home to the Lupevians, who, while somewhat conservative, tend to also have vastly heterodox ideals where you wouldn't expect them."

Lupeia - Urban Seats - 26 Seats
DCP: 11 Seats
ZMP: 6 Seats
UDP: 4 Seats
ZCP: 4 Seats
PAP: 1 Seat

"And all together...!"

Luparia - Total Seats - 67 Seats
DCP: 16 Seats
ZMP: 15 Seats
UDP: 13 Seats
ZCP: 7 Seats
CRP: 6 Seats
TSP: 4 Seats
GP: 3 Seats

Total Seats Won in 2021, by Party: 4,212 Seats
United Democratic Party: 670 Seats
Zellatian Moderate Party (Absorbed AXXP): 655 Seats
Democratic Conservative Party (Absorbed RRP): 573 Seats
Progressive Action Party: 530 Seats

Trapanian National Committee: 123 Seats
Neo-Thelakistine Party: 92 Seats


"It appears that the CRP has passed back over the TSP, and the ZPP have fallen to third to last. They are in increasing risk of falling out of the 5% threshold if they do not do well in other provinces...!"

"Right Sir Ezerek," Beatrice said calmly, "Lets move on to Lusos, now, shall we?"

Lusos - Rural Seats - 11 Seats
TSP: 6 Seats
UDP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 2 Seats

Lusos - Special Seats - 7 Seats
ZPP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 3 Seats
UDP: 1 Seat

"Kryso," Beatrice began, "is an odd duck in the matrix. Historically tied to the province of Mount Guan, it nonetheless is more culturally connected to the rest of the Lusos Valley and is more conservative and mining focused than agricultural."

Kryso - Urban Seats - 6 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats
PAP: 2 Seats

"Lukii on the other hand," she explained, "has mining operations, logging operations, and vast agricultural fields besides, still even now transitioning to a burgeoning manufacturing and technology industry!"

Lukii - Urban Seats - 20 Seats
UDP: 11 Seats
ZMP: 3 Seats
TSP: 2 Seats
NTP: 2 Seats
ZPP: 2 Seats

"And last is the capital of the province of the Lusos Valley, Lusos. The Lusoii nomads who once lived in the region were forced to settle by the Zellatian Empire upon conquest to fuel the growing city of Garrison to the west, home to the Empire's 'Military Capital', and feed it and itself it did."

Lusos - Urban Seats - 32 Seats
UDP: 16 Seats
ZCP: 8 Seats
PAP: 5 Seats
ZMP: 3 Seats

"Add it all up and...!"

Lusos - Total Seats - 76 Seats
UDP: 31 Seats
ZCP: 13 Seats
TSP: 8 Seats
PAP: 7 Seats
ZMP: 6 Seats
ZPP: 5 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats

Total Seats Won in 2021, by Party: 4,288 Seats
United Democratic Party: 701 Seats
Zellatian Moderate Party (Absorbed AXXP): 661 Seats
Democratic Conservative Party (Absorbed RRP): 577 Seats

"The various parties continue to bicker back and forth about the lower rankings, with ranks 6-10 being neck and neck. The only question is, what will the next results show...!"

"Which we have! Next up, we have five more provinces - and to really spice things up, we're going to add four of them to the total at once!" Sir Ezerek said to Beatrice's confusion.

"We are?"

"I thought we agreed when it came to these four-"

"Yeah, but did the producers agree?"

"...yes?"

"Are you sure?"

"...Yes."

"Alright, then, lets see them, starting with....Koton!"

Koton - Rural Seats - 4 Seats
PAP: 4 Seats

Koton - Special Seats - 4 Seats
ZCP: 3 Seats
ZPP: 1 Seat

"First up of the Four Autonomies, as they've been historically called, is Koton's surviving city-state, Kot'oss. Surrendering without a fight, they allowed free passage of Zellatian soldiers southwards, hoping that the thick forests would choke them. They did not."

Kot'oss - Urban Seats - 33 Seats

Hejaro - Special Seats - 5 Seats
UDP: 4 Seats
ZPP: 1 Seat

"The second of the conquered Four Autonomies, the Hejarans waged a massive guerilla campaign, but eventually the hidden city, Hejoz, was taken by Zellatian soldiers and they continued their march west, at the time uninterested in the places to the southeast."

Hejoz - Urban Seats - 29 Seats

Rhosharda - Rural Seats - 8 Seats
UDP: 6 Seats
PAP: 1 Seat
TSP: 1 Seat

Rhosharda - Special Seats - 6 Seats
ZPP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 3 Seats

"Out of the Four Autonomies to be, the State of Rhosharda was a difficult entity to crack. The last to be conquered, the vast fortress network around the city took a decade to break through and the issues of raids by Zangiyan outriders made the siege all the more difficult. Yet eventually Rhoshra fell - today it is home to many refugees who have largely settled around the city itself."

Rhoshra - Urban Seats - 38 Seats

ZCP: 1 Seat

Jozoi - Special Seats - 4 Seats
CRP: 4 Seats

"And last of the Four Autonomies, Jozen held one of the two routes to invade Zangiya safely, and despite the Great Embarkment making it nearly impossible for Zellatian soldiers to pass, a traitor in the midst of the Jozoi led to the city, Jozen, falling into Zellatian hands."

Jozen - Urban Seats - 32 Seats

Jozoi - Total Seats - 45 Seats
UDP: 14 Seats
DCP: 12 Seats

"And the Four Autonomies together are largely left-leaning, but we'll see how that translates to final totals...!"

ZCP: 28 Seats
DCP: 25 Seats

"Not much movement overall, but the PAP has gotten closer to the DCP, the TSP have tied with the Greens, and the Communists have officially gotten that 5% needed to stay in the legislature. One more province, the steppe and hill province of Zangiya! As we're running low on time, lets go through this disparate land at breakneck speeds!"

"There you have it," Sir Ezerek said, clearing his dry throat with a small bottle of booze, "the Communists have officially gone from having no seats in the legislature, even before qualification to having the 5% required total. At this rate they'll have 10% of the seats instead. The RDP has proven that they are a surprise party to reckon with when it comes to competing against the UDP directly in the south. There are still a number of pro-RDP provinces where the party may gain enough seats to get seated, but there's quite a bit of time before that comes to fruition. The RDP and TSP have passed the Greens, whereas the CRP has passed the ZPP. The Neo-Thelakistine Party's staying power, on the other hand, is unusual - they should have dropped out, but if their goal is to deny the TSP that 5% status...well, the TSP still needs 249 seats."

"That's right, Sir Ezerek," Beatrice nodded, "But for now, lets take another break. We'll be back in a little bit and until then, keep staying tuned to ZNN!"

ZNN Election Update - Zealia, Zeavria, Zrunvia, and Ellato
Image


"Wasn't it exciting to see another set of results a few minutes ago, Beatrice," Sir Ezerek said, clearly a little drunk.

"Ezerek, you apparently have colon cancer. You might want to cut down on the drinking," Beatrice says with a sigh, poking Sir Ezerek with her sword as the results queue behind them. "Lets keep this going then with Zealia! Home to one of the most ardent groups of supporters of Zellatia, Zealia has the highest participation rate in Zellatia's armies than any other province besides Zeagarde in the north. Lets see how things went!"

Zealia - Rural Seats - 4 Seats
GP: 3 Seats
PAP: 1 Seat

Zealia - Special Seats - 11 Seats
GP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 3 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
UDP: 2 Seats

"The most isolated of the larger cities, Wessen's closest ties are not with the rest of Zealia, but the port of Embelem in the Pederon Lowlands to the west. Nonetheless, this Zealian city is home to several expeditionary headquarters and people from the surrounding area flock to its many sports stadiums," Beatrice explained.

Wessen - Urban Seats - 6 Seats
PAP: 4 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats

"Havak, on the other hand, has always guarded the mouth of the East Zealian strait, with Zellatian ships taking over from the old Zealian Armada that once was stationed here."

Havak - Urban Seats - 8 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats
UDP: 2 Seats
RDP: 2 Seats

"Fort Telinara, originally Fort Zealad, was named after the former Emperor's wife who had passed, as she had been born and educated in the area. May Telinara rest in peace."

Fort Telinara - Urban Seats - 27 Seats
PAP: 11 Seats
ZMP: 5 Seats
RDP: 5 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
UDP: 2 Seats
ZCP: 1 Seat

"Last is the capital, which is far more leftist than the rest of the region. Historically this had led to it being in the PAP's pocket, but it seems that the ZCP's strength this year may lead to differing results...!"

Zejea - Urban Seats - 25 Seats
ZCP: 12 Seats
RDP: 4 Seats
PAP: 4 Seats

DCP: 2 Seats

"And altogether!"

"The Conservatives are getting closer and closer to the ZMP in grand totals and the PAP aren't far behind. And despite the defections caused by the RDP, it appears that the UDP's lead remains by nearly 100 seats. Further, the ZPP's got to do better in the coming seats if they want to stay at above 5%...but will they? Lets see how Zeavria goes," Sir Ezerek said, bobbing his head a little as he continued.

Zeavria - Rural Seats - 4 seats
GP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 1 Seat

Zeavria - Special Seats - 5 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats
UDP: 1 Seat

"Where the peoples of Zealia and Zrunvia meet, Zeavria was historically the clash point of those two related civilizations, creating their own civilization that, much like the rest, was conquered by Zellatia," Sir Ezerek explained. "The city of Zepri was historically closely aligned to Pederonian merchants out of Embelem and so to this day is home to many affiliate companies to those out of Embelem. Let us see where it goes!"

Zepri - Urban Seats - 5 Seats
PAP: 3 Seats
UDP: 1 Seat
DCP: 1 Seat

"Zrunivit was an old Zruni colony in Zeavria, and helped for a time solidify Zrunvian control of the region before the coming of Zellatia. It became the capital after Zruni fell, but it could not keep Zellatia out forever. To this day it is the home of Zealia Railworks, a railway company that operates the tracks that circle the island of Zealia."

Zrunivit - Urban Seats - 13 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats
UDP: 3 Seats
RDP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats
ZCP: 1 Seat

"And Port Golun is the capital and chief port of the island. While smaller than Fort Telinara on the east side, it is from Port Golun that much of the Zealian Sea's traffic begins, from the various manufactories to the internet technology hubs within its ports. It's chief export, however, remains to be Amber from the trees inland."

Port Golun - Urban Seats - 13 Seats
DCP: 7 Seats
ZCP: 3 Seats
UDP: 2 Seats
RDP: 1 Seat

"And put together...!"

Zeavria - Total Seats - 40 Seats
DCP: 16 Seats

"Amazing," Sir Ezerek started, "This is the first time since the election before last that the Conservatives have outperformed the Moderates - the ZMP just isn't that strong in the south and it shows. Will they recover in Zrunvia or Ellato? Lets find out!"

Zrunvia - Rural Seats - 20 Seats
GP: 11 Seats
TSP: 4 Seats
ZCP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats

Zrunvia - Special Seats - 10 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats
UDP: 3 Seats
RDP: 3 Seats

"Zrunvia was called by the Zellatians at the time as the Gateway to the Zealian Sea. You see, mercantile traffic in the area had long discriminated against Zellatian merchants and it was this frustration that led to the expansion into the region after the region to the west, Rasparnia, was conquered. Bugratu was the first step, the fortress there holding the pass that protected the heartland of the Zrunvian kingdom and it fell quickly under skilled Zellatian siegeworks."

Bugratu - Urban Seats - 6 Seats
ZMP: 4 Seats
ZCP: 1 Seat
UDP: 1 Seat

"Suik, given its remoteness, actually survived the fall of the Zrunvian Kingdom, as the Zellatians were not interested in diplomacy - far to the east, it was, for a time, a Zealian protectorate, though it wasn't kept safe from the Zellatians forever. For now, it is home to a number of lumbermills and more people in the region work in the Timber industry than any other."

Suik - Urban Seats - 9 Seats
RDP: 3 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats
UDP: 1 Seat

"Univi, much like Suik, escaped the fall of Zrunvia proper, but only by a few years - a southbound expedition out of by then Zellatian held Ellato conquered the area shortly thereafter. Univi itself is the farming center of the Zrunvian highlands and has seen extensive investment as it is the only connector between Zruni and the mines of Zangiya."

Univi - Urban Seats - 13 Seats
UDP: 6 Seats
DCP: 6 Seats
RDP: 1 Seat

"Last is Zruni, the aged capital. One of the largest cities on the Zealian Sea, Zruni was a mercantile juggernaut for many years before its conquest, resisting Zellatian siegeworks three times before being conquered. These days it is known for its more moderate politics and investments into the city's infrastructure and service industry."

Zruni - Urban Seats - 24 Seats
DCP: 7 Seats
ZMP: 6 Seats
PAP: 6 Seats
RDP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 2 Seats

"Lets see how everyone here did," Beatrice said, as the totals popped up behind her.

Zrunvia - Total Seats - 82 Seats

"Unfortunately for the ZPP, they've now dropped out of the 5% threshold. They have to do better if they want to survive all of this - as do the CRP, who are only barely above the threshold at this time. There's just one more province being added up today - Ellato!"

Ellato - Rural Seats - 7 Seats
CRP: 4 Seats
GP: 3 Seats

Ellato - Special Seats - 7 Seats
ZCP: 5 Seats
ZPP: 2 Seats

"The forested province of Ellato was once like the Four Autonomies, split between three different provinces for each of the major cities," Sir Ezerek explained. "However, after a series of rebellions that severely disrupted Zellatian control of the south, they were forcefully merged into one province and the three groups of peoples, already closely related, were forced to share a single leader. Foren, the first city to be conquered, is also known as the Hidden City, much like Hejaro on the other side of the mountains - for a time, only people who knew the forests could find it - but eventually it was found and conquered. Though they are also rabidly anti-monarchist, hence the RDP's likely strength here."

Foren - Urban Seats - 10 Seats
RDP: 6 Seats
UDP: 3 Seats
PAP: 1 Seat

"As you can see, the entire province isn't exactly pro-monarchy as it may have been in the past. Deffar in the east wasn't conquered until much later after the rest of the province due to its remote, at the time, location, but it was the stepping stone for the Zellatian armies needing to head south into Zorenzeal. And so, it was conquered. These days it is an important bypass up into the mountains to avoid the coastline and its livestock industry is rather large."

Deffar - Urban Seats - 11 Seats
RDP: 3 Seats
UDP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats
PAP: 2 Seats
DCP: 1 Seat

"Ellato, the capital, is also known as the Peaceful City - it capitulated without a fight to Zellatian armies as the city was purportedly 'above conflict', though the Zellatian government would find it unmanageable for a number of years due to local religious zealots. These days, its the technology center of the province, a cultural touchstone, and a really pretty tourist city," Beatrice explained.

Ellato - Urban Seats - 24 Seats
GP: 13 Seats
PAP: 5 Seats
ZCP: 4 Seats
RDP: 1 Seat
UDP: 1 Seat

"And adding them all up...!" Beatrice continued.

Ellato - Total Seats - 59 Seats
GP: 16 Seats
RDP: 10 Seats
ZCP: 9 Seats
PAP: 8 Seats
UDP: 7 Seats
CRP: 4 Seats
ZPP: 2 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats

Total Seats Won in 2021, by Party: 4,968 Seats
United Democratic Party: 800 Seats
Democratic Conservative Party (Absorbed RRP): 720 Seats
Zellatian Moderate Party (Absorbed AXXP): 714 Seats
Progressive Action Party: 663 Seats
Zellatian Communist Party (VP, HP absorption): 508 Seats

Zellatian Peoples' Party (ZPP-FNF Alliance): 246 Seats
Trapanian National Committee: 123 Seats
Neo-Thelakistine Party: 96 Seats


"And the ZPP didn't do quite well enough. Should they reach out to the NTP, perhaps? It seems that they may be trying to do just that - we'll see in time if they do that. Until then, it appears there's still over 4,000 seats up for grabs, and for now we're signing off here at ZNN - not that we'll call the rest here and now. This has been Beatrice ZeTreppe-"

"And Sir Ezerek Neuhauser. We'll see you all again half past the hour - after we here have some dinner."

The electoral newsfeed continued to be a wear at Lana's peace of mind. She knows the rest of the Directorate will not be receptive to closing the DMZ amongst other demands, as the Empire is currently perceived as unstable and the pretense may be used to expand the DMZ and turn the terrorist petri dish that is Port Demize into a vassal state. Another powder keg was there, all was needed was a strike of the match. Cusping a glass of sweetened tea of a questionable flora, she finds some ease. Knowing the outlook, she stares at her phone, anticipating the call for her to quietly evacuate Revnami, in anticipation of an act of terror.

She put down her glass to grab the phone. It may be her last action at her post, but she was bent on making it count.
"Ambassador Landrek, this is DDA Ambassador Paralle. I am calling to address Prime Minister Destronikan's statement concerning the DMZ and would like to discuss specifics. I will leave the method to you. Call me back when you receive this message, thanks."[i]

Zellatian Embassy, Revnami

Zelgar Landrek was many things in his role as Ambassador to both Andrenade and Xuande-Xiphoi. Sometimes he wondered why Prime Minister Destronikan put him here, but he was rather sure by this point that it was to kill him from stress. He'd never been a member of the Zellatian Moderate Party, instead he was a Progressive Action Party official that seemed to luck into the role (his wife's statement on the matter anyhow) here in Xuande-Xiphoi. And while he appreciated having responsibilities, the constant explanations he was forced to make whenever the Prime Minister was in a mood...it defied his ability to keep his stress levels down. Still, he wasn't about to fail to do his duty, especially when called upon.

And so he listed carefully to the message from the DDA Ambassador, Lana Paralle. He'd never really spoken to her - again, directives from Prime Minister Destronikan meant that any direct conversations would usually fall to the Foreign Minister, former Lt. General Skanir Savage, but with the election still being tallied up in progress, Zelgar was technically the highest ranking member of the Diplomatic Service that could be talked to at this time without breaking Zellatian Electoral Laws.

Of course. She WOULD complain about that.

Responding in kind, he left a message with Ambassador Paralle's people:

"Thank you for getting in touch with me, Ambassador Paralle. Your surprise is the same as mine at the Prime Minister's statement on the Demilitarized Zone between our two nations. His stance, as far as I am aware, is a personal one and does not reflect current Zellatian foreign policy, as directed by the Foreign Ministry. If you have specific questions, I will do my best to answer them, but I cannot do so in a direct conversation as I am working with the Zellatian Consulates across Xuande-Xiphoi to make sure votes from various jurisdictions are properly counted among the expatriates. Nonetheless, I can assure you that whatever the case may be, it is possible that I will not have the most up to date information. Please leave your questions and concerns with my people and I will work as quickly as possible to answer them."

Considering what he knew of Andrenade's activities of late, this could only bode poorly - though it was possible that their intelligence arm didn't communicate with their diplomatic one like Zellatia's did.

ZNN National Election Update - Endestriki, Issan, Kiotoski, Aqiri, and Tzellak

"Welcome back everyone to our post-dinner update of the Fifth Zellatian National Election - I'm your cohost, Beatrice ZeTreppe," Beatrice said as Sir Ezerek cut in right on cue.

"And I'm Sir Ezerek Neuhauser. Lets get through the last of the Destronikan home provinces and finish out Trapania, post-haste!"

Endestriki - Rural Seats - 14 Seats
GP: 6 Seats
TSP: 6 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats

Endestriki - Special Seats - 7 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
CRP: 3 Seats
ZPP: 1 Seat

"As the westernmost Destronikan province, for a time it was part of the larger Destroniki province. However, Endestriki has its own traditions and face paints that go with it," Sir Ezerek explained. "Palarra is one of the three major ports of the province, though it is a small city. It is the lumber and construction capital of the province, with many of its workers leaving the area and heading into the hinterlands or bigger cities during the day and coming back at night."

Palarra - Urban Seats - 3 Seats
PAP: 2 Seats
DCP: 1 Seat

"Marshak, on the other hand, is in the Marshiki Wetlands, where both vast archaeological studies are done, along with the biological and anthropological - the Port of Marshak has been only inhabited since around 500 A.D., as the area was considered uninhabitable for long term living until parts of the Wetlands were dredged for agriculture. To this day, it remains a relatively restive big city."

Marshak - Urban Seats - 5 Seats
PAP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 1 Seat
DCP: 1 Seat

"Trillden is the chief commercial port in the province, receiving goods from all over the world to mostly send west into the Genjizan regions of Zellatia - these goods vary from niche electronics to the more generalized equipment required with the moisture-proofing needed in the more humid provinces."

Trillden - Urban Seats - 9 Seats
DCP: 6 Seats
PAP: 1 Seat
ZCP: 1 Seat
UDP: 1 Seat

"and last is the city of Enniki, the City of Fraternity and Sorority. This city has long been a champion of equality and was the first place in Zellatia that a marriage between two men, and two women, in separate ceremonies of course, took place. Since then, it is the destination for that sort of wedding," Sir Ezerek explained."

Enniki - Urban Seats - 32 Seats
UDP: 11 Seats
PAP: 10 Seats
DCP: 6 Seats
ZMP: 3 Seats
CRP: 2 Seats

"Lets see those seats!"

Endestriki - Total Seats - 70 Seats
DCP: 17 Seats
PAP: 16 Seats
UDP: 12 Seats
GP: 6 Seats
TSP: 6 Seats
ZMP: 5 Seats
CRP: 5 Seats
ZCP: 2 Seats

Zellatian Peoples' Party (ZPP-FNF Alliance): 247 Seats
Trapanian National Committee: 123 Seats
Neo-Thelakistine Party: 96 Seats


"The DCP continues to pull away from the ZMP in a surprise twist. The ZMP has a lot of ground it needs to recover to get back into first place and those negotiations with the NTP might be the ticket it needs...!"

"Right," Beatrice said, "Next up is the Province of Issan on Trapania. We have four last provinces on that island, so we're going to speed through each province so that we find out what the TNC is planning on doing. They're reportedly in negotiations, knowing that they can't reach 450, but with who?"

Issan - Rural Seats - 5 Seats
TNC: 3 Seats
GP: 1 Seat
TSP: 1 Seat

Issan - Special Seats - 4 Seats
TNC: 3 Seats

TNC: 3 Seats
UDP: 2 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats

Issan - Urban Seats - 21 Seats
UDP: 8 Seats
TNC: 6 Seats
ZMP: 4 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats

"As you can see, the TNC continues to do well, but not good enough to win a majority in the province - even if they got every seat in Trapania left, they wouldn't have enough - but the UDP, DCP, and ZMP benefitted from the urban support for middle of the road solutions," Beatrice explained.

Issan - Total Seats - 44 Seats
TNC: 16 Seats

Trapanian National Committee: 139 Seats

"Next is the province of Kiotoski, which is closely aligned with the inland Trapania province - where will it go?" Sir Ezerek asked.

Kiotoski - Rural Seats - 3 Seats
TNC: 3 Seats

Kiotoski - Special Seats - 3 Seats
TNC: 3 Seats

Kiostan - Urban Seats - 10 Seats

Neo-Thelakistine Party: 96 Seats


"Let us see how things develop further in the rest of Trapania. Up next is Aqiri, famous for its variety of regional intoxicants, from traditional booze to the obscene sort," Sir Ezerek said, "I would know, I've tried them all. If someone says that Ardbaq is harmless, they're lying to you - I woke up in a ditch in Xuande-Xiphoi - and I started a week before, partying in Frurikki. I do not recommend drinking it unless you have a lot of money and friends who won't listen to your stupid ideas. God rest your soul, Jak Zotts."

"Just one more Trapanian province before we're all tied up for this section - lets see how things went in Tzellak, the most Genjizan influenced for the Trapanian provinces!" Beatrice said as the results came up behind her. "Tzellak was also heavily settled by Zellatian colonists during the initial conquest period, so you generally fall under Mostly Native Descent, Mostly Genjizan Descent, Mostly High Zellatian Descent, or Mixed when it comes to the province."

Tzellak - Rural Seats - 7 Seats

"Sir Ezerek?" Beatrice asked, "Do we have news from the Trapanian National Committee's headquarters?"

"That we do," Sir Ezerek said. "After some discussion, the TNC will align itself fully with the Zellatian Communist Party, which was a shock to many who haven't been paying attention to the ZCP's relative success in this election. In normal times, they might have aligned with the Thelakisto-Socialist Party, but with the TSP infighting only getting worse as the day goes by due to the NTP's continued existence, the TNC's alignment with - hmm?" he paused, squinting and then gasping. "Well now," he said, "I suppose we have two here to discuss, then."

"What do you mean?"

"The Neo-Thelakistine Party has made an agreement with -"

"The TSP?"

"No, the-"

"The Community Rights Party? The Zellatian Peoples' Party?"

"No, if you'll let me-"

"Then who!?"

"Beatrice," Sir Ezerek said with a weary smile,"the Zellatian Moderate Party."

"...seriously?"

"Seriously. Lets get the votes recalculated and back up on the board behind me!"


Total Seats Won in 2021, by Party: 5,209 Seats

Zellatian Peoples' Party (ZPP-FNF Alliance): 249 Seats


"And here we are - from 15 Parties at the start we now only have 10 - reflecting in some ways the last election. However, the ZPP and CRP are now running behind in total seats required to reach the big 450 - and there are only so many places where they'll be able to meet that divide. For now, though," Beatrice said, "its time for another break. Next time we'll only have two more provinces reporting, but they're the big ones of Mitta and Garris, together worth over 400 seats! From everyone here, I'm Beatrice ZeTreppe-"

"While I'm Sir Ezerek Neuhauser - we'll see you all real soon."

ZNN National Election Update - Mitta and Garris
Image


"Next are two of the more consequential provinces of Zellatia," Sir Ezerek explained. "You see, Mitta is home to one of the 'homelands' of those peoples closely related to Zellatians, just like Irreddiki and Destronika. And Garris has largely served as a Second Zelatun, with its capital city being the second city of the Empire after it was heavily settled by those who belong to the High Zellatian and Mittan groups. Lets see how Mitta is handled first!"

Mitta - Rural Seats - 21 Seats
TSP: 16 Seats
ZMP: 3 Seats
GP: 2 Seats

Mitta - Special Seats - 5 Seats
UDP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 1 Seat
ZPP: 1 Seat

"Technically, the area around the first city, Um'aera, is a desert. Dry, there isn't much industry other than solar and mining, both of which combined employ a quarter of the city's working population. Much of Mitta is on the more 'moderate' bent of things, though the ZMP was only moderately popular prior to Hardek's rise and subsequent leadership of the ZMP. Hardek has promised to put an Innovation Center in Um'aera, so lets see what that buys him," Sir Ezerek explained.

Um'aera - Urban Seats - 14 Seats
ZMP: 7 Seats
UDP: 4 Seats
CRP: 3 Seats

"A little, by the looks of things. Next up is Um'daka, the first stop for any traveler entering Mitta from the northeast. Farming is a large industry here, though information technology and the service industry are a close second and third."

Um'daka - Urban Seats - 21 Seats
ZMP: 10 Seats
UDP: 6 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
PAP: 2 Seats

"Last is the more divided city of Um'idal, the capital. For those who are out of the know, 'Um', in Old Mittan, means city, just like 'Tun' does in Old Zellatian. Um'idal, or 'City of Roads' is a crossroad between Zellatia's north, its west, and its center. As a major economic hub, its been one of the more important cities of Zellatia, though with Air Travel, its become less and less important. Though, that still doesn't lessen its impact on our media, as a dozen prominent newspapers and magazines, such as The Daily Mittan, Midalian Abroad, and the Central Zellatian Herald are all headquartered here."

Um'idal - Urban Seats - 31 Seats
UDP: 11 Seats
DCP: 8 Seats
ZMP: 5 Seats
TSP: 3 Seats
CRP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 1 Seat

"And putting that all together for our audience...!"

Mitta - Total Seats - 92 Seats
ZMP: 26 Seats
UDP: 24 Seats
TSP: 19 Seats
DCP: 11 Seats
CRP: 6 Seats
GP: 2 Seats
PAP: 2 Seats
ZPP: 1 Seat
ZCP: 1 Seat


Total Seats Won in 2021, by Party: 5,301 Seats
United Democratic Party: 865 Seats
Zellatian Moderate Party (ZMP-NTP Alliance): 853 Seats
Democratic Conservative Party: 773 Seats
Progressive Action Party: 702 Seats
Zellatian Communist Party (ZCP-TNC Alliance): 701 Seats

Radical Democratic Party: 309 Seats
Green Party of Zellatia: 297 Seats
Thelakisto-Socialist Party: 285 Seats
Community Rights Party: 266 Seats

Zellatian Peoples' Party (ZPP-FNF Alliance): 250 Seats


"With that the Moderates are inching closer to the UDP. Next up is the province of Garris, the second largest in the Empire," Beatrice explained, looking to the ticker as the various cities began to flash behind them. "For some of the parties, this will be a make or break province. If the ZPP and CRP can't earn a significant number of seats here, they may be doomed going forward without making concessions to other parties, though the CRP did catch up this round to 5% again. Lets see those Garris results!"

Garris - Rural Seats - 49 Seats
UDP: 13 Seats
RDP: 13 Seats
CRP: 10 Seats
GP: 8 Seats
ZMP: 5 Seats

Garris - Special Seats - 37 Seats
ZMP: 8 Seats
UDP: 7 Seats
CRP: 7 Seats
RDP: 6 Seats
GP: 5 Seats
ZCP: 4 Seats

"First up is Glengarr. Like many of the major cities of Garris, Glengarr was heavily damaged during the fighting in the Insurrection. Most of its industry involves forestry and tourism due to the natural parks in the region. The Green Party has always been popular here."

Glengarr - Urban Seats - 3 Seats
UDP: 2 Seats
GP: 1 Seat

"Ayagarr on the other hand is the most isolated of Garris' cities. As a result, it was able to avoid the worst of the devastation of the province, and its natural resources are heavily mined and refined in the region. Most of its goods leave and its an area that the DCP have promised to build a better transportation network in."

Ayagarr - Urban Seats - 6 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats
UDP: 1 Seat
RDP: 1 Seat

"Here, we start to see that the RDP rebellion appears to be this far north. Who would've guessed? Though it does make sense - the RDP in Garris are largely representing the worst hit areas and we'll see if that spreads throughout the province."

Gedonta - Urban Seats - 28 Seats
CRP: 16 Seats
ZMP: 4 Seats
RDP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 3 Seats
UDP: 2 Seats

"Gedonta has always been very independent minded, as it was settled long after the conquest of the region by Independent Colonists outside of the Garrison system. To this end, lets see how the eponymous Garrison is doing - likely hammering into the UDP's natural lead in the city, no doubt," Beatrice said.

Garrison - Urban Seats - 155 Seats
UDP: 41 Seats
RDP: 35 Seats
TSP: 20 Seats
ZCP: 16 Seats
ZMP: 12 Seats
CRP: 9 Seats
GP: 8 Seats
DCP: 7 Seats
PAP: 7 Seats

"The RDP really hammered into the UDP here. Historically, the UDP controlled half of the seats without a problem and the ZMP took more than expected, leading to questions as to if the UDP would be able to fend off the ZMP. While the ZMP underperformed in the province, it was a general rejection of right wing thought."

Garris - Total Seats - 278 Seats
UDP: 66 Seats
RDP: 58 Seats
CRP: 42 Seats
ZMP: 29 Seats
ZCP: 23 Seats
GP: 22 Seats
TSP: 20 Seats
DCP: 11 Seats
PAP: 7 Seats


Total Seats Won in 2021, by Party: 5,579 Seats
United Democratic Party: 931 Seats
Zellatian Moderate Party (ZMP-NTP Alliance): 882 Seats
Democratic Conservative Party: 784 Seats
Zellatian Communist Party (ZCP-TNC Alliance): 724 Seats
Progressive Action Party: 709 Seats

Radical Democratic Party: 367 Seats
Green Party of Zellatia: 319 Seats
Community Rights Party: 308 Seats
Thelakisto-Socialist Party: 305 Seats

Zellatian Peoples' Party (ZPP-FNF Alliance): 250 Seats


"What an impact! Now every party save for the ZPP-FN alliance is qualifying, and the UDP have officially gotten 10% of the total seats and 17% of all won seats so far. The ZCP have managed to wrest fourth place from the PAP, who are underperforming in some key provinces - the only question now is if that'll keep up as we go back north to Genjizo and the provinces there. The RDP are getting closer and closer to the required 450 and if they do, well, it'll be an interesting discussion of coalitions. They just might be pissed off enough to want to work with the Moderates, but we'll see," Beatrice explained, as Sir Ezerek continued to drink.

"Yeah, yeah," Sir Ezerek said, "In the meantime, we'll hold down the fort. See you all in 20 for more results as we get through more of Zellatia's election - we're almost 2/3rds done!"

ZNN National Election Update - Dae and Danga
Image


"Welcome back everyone," Beatrice began, "As we turn ourselves towards another 175, roughly, seats and inch closer to that 2/3rds point, we'd like to remind everyone at home to not prematurely celebrate - we're not nearly done yet."

"Huh?" Sir Ezerek said, sipping on water, "People do that?"

"...yes."

"Huh, weird," Sir Ezerek said, gulping down a little more water, before continuing, "We might as well start it off right with Dae province, which was split off from Danga province during the last provincial shuffle. Influenced in many ways by its neighbor to the south, Jinnam, Dae was historically conquered a few times by the south, though always conquered by the Kings of Danga. Whether that back and forth will match the politics, well, lets see!"

Dae - Rural Seats - 4 Seats
TSP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 1 Seat

Dae - Special Seats - 8 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats
GP: 2 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats

"To'ji," Beatrice began, "has long been influenced by Genjizan states to its north as its first trade port before heading into what was at one point the Zellatian border. In time, it became the very port used by ships heading inland to conquer the rest of the region piece by piece. To this day, it is more militant, but lets see how it ended up."

To'ji - Urban Seats - 5 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
PAP: 2 Seats

"As one of the DCP's best provinces, Qara is another stronghold. Will it hold against ZMP and UDP influences?"

Qara - Urban Seats - 10 Seats
DCP: 6 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats
ZCP: 1 Seat
UDP: 1 Seats

"It seems so. All's left is the at time anachronistic divided city of Daejin, with the part away from the river more conservative compared to those who live along the river."

Daejin - Urban Seats - 60 Seats
ZMP: 26 Seats
TSP: 18 Seats
DCP: 9 Seats
ZCP: 4 Seats
PAP: 3 Seats

"Put that all together, and we have our totals - lets see where it all leads!"

Dae - Total Seats - 87 Seats
ZMP: 31 Seats
DCP: 22 Seats
TSP: 21 Seats
PAP: 5 Seats
ZCP: 5 Seats
GP: 2 Seats
UDP: 1 Seats


Total Seats Won in 2021, by Party: 5,666 Seats
United Democratic Party: 932 Seats
Zellatian Moderate Party (ZMP-NTP Alliance): 913 Seats

Democratic Conservative Party: 806 Seats
Zellatian Communist Party (ZCP-TNC Alliance): 729 Seats
Progressive Action Party: 714 Seats

Radical Democratic Party: 367 Seats

Zellatian Peoples' Party (ZPP-FNF Alliance): 250 Seats


"And the TSP has leapt back over the Greens and CRP! Will this continue on as we go? Lets see the other Danganesian province, Danga itself!"

"That's right, Beatrice. Danga is a rural province, mostly, with its north still very undeveloped due to a lack of infrastructure. However, there have been promises by most of the campaigns to increase the transportation access to the region, so it might be growing in the coming years in a big way," Sir Ezerek explained.

Danga - Rural Seats - 20 Seats
TSP: 11 Seats
ZMP: 5 Seats
DCP: 2 Seats
GP: 2 Seats

Danga - Special Seats - 8 Seats
ZCP: 5 Seats
ZPP: 2 Seats
GP: 1 Seat

"Nipo being the province's only port on the Danga River, it is largely outshined by To'ji to the south and Abbaspur to the north, but at one point in time was the largest port in the western Trapanian Sea due to the largesse of the Kings of Danga, though the riches of the province were historically and still remain, centered inland. The flat expanse around Nipo spared it no protection as Zellatian armies rolled over it before they even deigned to go inland. Today, its defined by all sorts of divided politics."

Nipo - Urban Seats - 4 Seats
ZMP: 1 Seat
DCP: 1 Seat
UDP: 1 Seat
PAP: 1 Seat

"And so it remains. Despite the region's comparatively conservative bent, D'ang has always been on the left-wing side in the last few decades, as it was home to the old school Non-Zelikist Communists that have since gone out of style elsewhere. Still, there are historic holdover voters that might deliver more votes than expected to the PAP and ZCP..."

D'ang - Urban Seats - 62 Seats
UDP: 17 Seats
ZMP: 16 Seats
PAP: 16 Seats
DCP: 7 Seats
ZCP: 6 Seats

"Just so. On that note, why don't we count everything up and see where we are before our next break?"

Danga - Total Seats - 94 Seats
ZMP: 22 Seats
UDP: 18 Seats
PAP: 17 Seats
TSP: 11 Seats
ZCP: 11 Seats
DCP: 10 Seats
GP: 3 Seats
ZPP: 2 Seats


Total Seats Won in 2021, by Party: 5,760 Seats
United Democratic Party: 950 Seats
Zellatian Moderate Party (ZMP-NTP Alliance): 935 Seats

Democratic Conservative Party: 816 Seats
Zellatian Communist Party (ZCP-TNC Alliance): 740 Seats
Progressive Action Party: 731 Seats

Radical Democratic Party: 367 Seats
Thelakisto-Socialist Party: 337 Seats
Green Party of Zellatia: 324 Seats
Community Rights Party: 308 Seats

Zellatian Peoples' Party (ZPP-FNF Alliance): 252 Seats


"While the ZMP, now empowered with guaranteed 10% of the total seats, inch closer to the UDP, the PAP once more starts to catch up to the Communists, within shooting distance. Both, with the right circumstances, could catch up to the Conservatives, but beyond that its anyone's game in the top 5 - there are still over 3,000 seats, after all! While we take our break, make sure to catch the Zeitball scores for tonight's game and make sure to brush your teeth," Sir Ezerek said, taking a long swig of bourbon before smiling. "We'll see you all here again real soon."

ZNN National Election Update - South and North Gendi, Istripala, and Khoppal
Image


"And we're back with the greater Genjizo region! Originally settled sometime in late antiquity by those who migrated in and out of Tigaria in the north and from across the Kenos ocean to the northwest, Genjizo was a frontier region for Zellatia for many years, the Empire of Tigaria fighting Zellatia for it in a series of proxy wars over hundreds of years. Eventually, once it was secured for Zellatia, it was made into a foothold to invade and conquer Tigaria once and for all - which came over more years of fighting. But, for now, lets start with the Trapanian Sea provinces of South and North Gendi!" Beatrice explained, as the results began to show.

South Gendi - Rural Seats - 10 Seats
TSP: 3 Seats
ZPP: 2 Seats
GP: 2 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats
PAP: 1 Seat

South Gendi - Special Seats - 7 Seats
ZPP: 3 Seats
PAP: 2 Seats
ZCP: 2 Seats

"Abbaspur, which was historically an important stop along the Trapanian Sea's trade routes, is actually in economic decline right now due to several members of the Port Authority of Abbaspur have been outed as former members of the FSP who went underground. As such, traffic to the port has been reduced significantly in combination of the stigma and increased scrutiny of cargo - something that the DCP has promised to reverse. But will it hold?"

Abbaspur - Urban Seats - 3 Seats
DCP: 2 Seats
PAP: 1 Seat

"And it seems it has," Sir Ezerek butts in, smiling. "Iserabad's decline, in comparison, is due to the increasing importance of Fort Nd'zol in North Gendi rather than economic sabotage by the Port Authority. However, another reason is a sadder one - climate change. You see, the seas near the Port of Iserabad was once home to a vast array of seafood that could be fished relatively easily. However, with the increased acidity, the port has had smaller and smaller catches. The DCP has promised to create a program that will allow better techniques for raising the Iserabad Oysters and other shellfish found nearby, but will that buy-out suceed?"

Iserabad - Urban Seats - 4 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
UDP: 1 Seat

"Apparently. However, the real economic center of the province if the former fortress city of Minote, the Gateway to the West, as it was once called. At the crux of the east-west highway for northwestern Zellatia, Minote is also a popular destination for university students and various niche industries alike. How will this translate to seats?"

Minote - Urban Seats - 26 Seats
DCP: 6 Seats
ZMP: 5 Seats
PAP: 5 Seats
ZPP: 5 Seats
CRP: 5 Seats

"And divided a city it remains. No ideology seems to have broken through the barrier of a strong plurality, but due to DCP promises, they seem to have excelled. Lets see those totals!"

South Gendi - Total Seats - 50 Seats
DCP: 11 Seats
ZPP: 10 Seats
PAP: 9 Seats
ZMP: 7 Seats
CRP: 5 Seats
TSP: 3 Seats
GP: 2 Seats
ZCP: 2 Seats
UDP: 1 Seat


Total Seats Won in 2021, by Party: 5,810 Seats
United Democratic Party: 951 Seats
Zellatian Moderate Party (ZMP-NTP Alliance): 942 Seats

Democratic Conservative Party: 827 Seats
Zellatian Communist Party (ZCP-TNC Alliance): 742 Seats

Green Party of Zellatia: 326 Seats
Community Rights Party: 313 Seats

Zellatian Peoples' Party (ZPP-FNF Alliance): 262 Seats


"While the ZPP seems to be moving again, it may be too little, too late. At 4.5%, it'll take a significant push continuously in territory they've done decently in to regain their spot in the 5% or higher club - and it'll depend on other parties being willing to ally with them again for them to be able to guarantee seats in the Parliament after this. Lets see how the situation up north in North Gendi treats them and the rest of the parties!"

North Gendi - Rural Seats - 18 Seats
TSP: 7 Seats
ZPP: 6 Seats
GP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 1 Seat
PAP: 1 Seat

North Gendi - Special Seats - 8 Seats
ZPP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 3 Seats
DCP: 1 Seat
GP: 1 Seat

"Balaki, between the ports of Genisej and Khoppalesh, has learned to take advantage of the niches left behind by their larger neighbors. As the main river port of Genji Abborra, the provincial capital, as well as Minote, it serves as a middleman between them and the outside world. Still, this leads to all sorts being in the city, how will that translate?" Sir Ezerek asked.

Balaki - Urban Seats - 8 Seats
DCP: 2 Seats
PAP: 2 Seats
UDP: 2 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats

"Oddly as always," Beatrice cut in. "Genisej, on the other hand, is a hotbed for leftist, anti-war activity. Part of this is due to the Genisej Massacre during the 1965 Civil War, in which various claimants killed many of the people in Genisej as the oft fought over region moved back and forth that year. Lets see how that translated, here!"

Genisej - Urban Seats - 12 Seats
UDP: 4 Seats
GP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 1 Seat
PAP: 1 Seat

"Quite interestingly. The Communists were once the most prominent party in Genisej, but that could come again sometime later. Next is Fort Nd'zol, the most important mainland-side port in the Northwest of the Trapanian Sea. It is home to the 7th Zellatian Armada and is the first stop for many ships along the Trapanian Sea. Lets see where it went!"

Fort Nd'zol - Urban Seats - 12 Seats
PAP: 6 Seats
ZMP: 4 Seats
GP: 2 Seats

"Interestingly indeed," Sir Ezerek explained. "I can tell you for certain that the two GP seats gained here are thanks to the Veterans' Party remnants winning their seats. But lets see where the leftist heartland of eastern Genjizo, Genji Abborra is. Home to the University of Political Science, Zellatia, Genji Abborra has been an important economic and political center for the greater Genjizo period all the way back to Antiquity when it was founded by the legendary explorer, Menak Abu Djabora, which translated in the tongue of the time, Gen Abborra. Lets see if the Communists can rise up here as they have elsewhere!"

Genji Abborra - Urban Seats - 50 Seats
UDP: 15 Seats
PAP: 12 Seats
ZCP: 12 Seats
DCP: 6 Seats
ZMP: 3 Seats
ZPP: 2 Seats

"And with that, the capital of the old Genjizo province is totaled up. Lets see those bigger numbers!"

North Gendi - Total Seats - 108 Seats
PAP: 22 Seats
UDP: 21 Seats
ZCP: 18 Seats
ZPP: 11 Seats
ZMP: 11 Seats
DCP: 9 Seats

Total Seats Won in 2021, by Party: 5,918 Seats
United Democratic Party: 972 Seats
Zellatian Moderate Party (ZMP-NTP Alliance): 953 Seats

Radical Democratic Party: 367 Seats
Thelakisto-Socialist Party: 347 Seats
Green Party of Zellatia: 335 Seats
Community Rights Party: 313 Seats

Zellatian Peoples' Party (ZPP-FNF Alliance): 273 Seats


"And with that we move on over to Istripala, the only inland province of the Genjizo region. The largest as well, will that size lead to a greater variety of seats won? Lets find out!"

Istripala - Rural Seats - 11 Seats
GP: 6 Seats
ZMP: 3 Seats
TSP: 2 Seats

Istripala - Special Seats - 8 Seats
ZPP: 3 Seats
GP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 2 Seats

"First up is the city of Mur Sawati, in the Istripalan highlands. Originally the center of many different groups fighting for supremacy, the area became a contested proxy war battleground between Zellatian-backed, Tigarian-backed, and other independent polities seeking to control the region. To this day, the city is more indepedently minded as a result," Sir Ezerek explained.

Mur Sawati - Urban Seats - 6 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
CRP: 2 Seats
PAP: 1 Seat

"Fort Zelagarti, on the other hand," Beatrice explained, "Was a Zellatian founded outpost, in which Zellatian colonists, based on the Garrison system, intermarried with locals to create a new settlement and trade hub. Its success in the north allowed the Zellatians to hold these higher grounds. And, as a military fort, the ZMP and PAP are likely to do quite well. Lets see!"

Fort Zelagarti - Urban Seats - 17 Seats
PAP: 9 Seats
ZMP: 3 Seats
GP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 1 Seat
DCP: 1 Seat

"And so it went," Beatrice continued, "with VP seats going to the Greens and Communists, its no wonder that the Veterans' Party was a threat to the Moderates. Next is the capital, once known as the twin cities of Tripali and Igumi. Tripali being Genjizan, and Igumi being Samaian, the peoples to the south. This divided city has a divided political history, with its last mayor being a ZMP turned UDP politician. Lets see how it ended up and how that all comes together!"

Tripaligumi - Urban Seats - 21 Seats
ZMP: 11 Seats
UDP: 5 Seats
ZCP: 2 Seats
PAP: 1 Seat
DCP: 1 Seat
CRP: 1 Seat

Istripala - Total Seats- 63 Seats

Zellatian Peoples' Party (ZPP-FNF Alliance): 276 Seats


"The purported Moderates are starting to get closer to 1st place again - the UDP is rather weak in Genjizo, hence their failure to pull further ahead. Likewise, the PAP is starting to again pull away from the Communists, though both are pretty far behind the Conservatives. Likewise, the TSP and Greens are neck and neck, and the ZPP still hasn't done enough to catch up - will that change in the last province of Khoppal?"

Khoppal - Rural Seats - 8 Seats
GP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats
ZPP: 2 Seats
TSP: 1 Seat

Khoppal - Special Seats - 10 Seats
ZPP: 6 Seats
ZMP: 3 Seats
GP: 1 Seat

"First up is the port of Darval. Not naturally on a river, it is still home to the Darvali Canal, which was built in the late 1400's to better irrigate western Khoppal. Nonetheless, it has made due in its remoteness as well from other major cities, largely working as part of the larger river network to ship supplies inland and export products from Istripala to other parts of Zellatia," Sir Ezerek explained.

Darval - Urban Seats - 3 Seats
DCP: 2 Seats
UDP: 1 Seat

"And it seems that the DCP is doing the same thing its done in Gendi. Here especially, the population in Genjizo's smaller cities have been hit by the twin evils of FSP and Economic Downturns due to weakened trade with Xuande-Xiphoi. The DCP are promising quite a bit here and in Kampaurya in the north, which is doing comparatively better. As the '3rd Canal City', Kampaurya still trades quite a bit with Xuande-Xiphoi, to the point where Kampaurya Kombucha is often found in Xuande-Xiphoian households. Lets see how that translates to seats," Sir Ezerek said, sipping some of that same beverage.

Kampaurya - Urban Seats - 12 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats
PAP: 3 Seats
UDP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats

"Imagutta on the other hand, the '2nd Canal City'," Sir Ezerek continued, "has historically been a UDP stronghold, though that has weakened due to tension between the leading UDP and locals who feel discriminated against by Xuande-Xiphoian companies operating in the town."

Imagutta - Urban Seats - 13 Seats
UDP: 5 Seats
ZPP: 4 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats
PAP: 2 Seats

"The last city, Khoppalesh, is a historically leftists city with odd business ties to the west. Lets see how it ended up, along with the rest of the province!"

Khoppalesh - Urban Seats - 16 Seats
PAP: 8 Seats
DCP: 5 Seats
ZMP: 1 Seat
UDP: 1 Seat
ZCP: 1 Seat

Khoppal - Total Seats - 62 Seats
PAP: 13 Seats
ZPP: 12 Seats
DCP: 11 Seats

Thelakisto-Socialist Party: 350 Seats
Community Rights Party: 316 Seats

Zellatian Peoples' Party (ZPP-FNF Alliance): 288 Seats


"While the ZPP are inching closer to qualification, the TSP and Greens are dueling and the PAP is pulling further ahead of the Communists. The UDP and ZMP remain neck and neck and its anyone's game still for first, especially now that we're in the last 1/3rd votes," Beatrice explained, before smiling. "We'll see you all soon once the totals from Samai and the southern Tigarian Isles come in. Until then, I've been Beatrice ZeTreppe and my partner here has been Sir Ezerek Neuhauser - don't worry, I'll wake him up before our next segment," she says, shaking him as the camera fades out.

ZNN National Election Update - Saiguni, Port Func, Mehru, and Muja
Image
Image


"As we continue, do remember that we still have quite a ways to go," Beatrice explained, "With roughly 3,000 seats to tabulate left tonight, we might be forced to run through some of the explanations for our foreign listeners a little more brusquely than we might want to. But in the spirit of information, we'll do our best to make sure you understand our beautiful Zellatia all the better."

"Right, uh. Samai, mostly called Saiguni, is technically part of Genjizo, though it is largely an external province that stands on its own and is aligned more with Mino to the west. Lets see how things end up there!" Sir Ezerek said, waving his hand as they continued to show the results...

Saiguni - Rural Seats - 20 Seats
TSP: 9 Seats
UDP: 7 Seats
GP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 1 Seat

Saiguni - Special Seats - 17 Seats
UDP: 7 Seats
ZPP: 4 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 3 Seats

"And with that performance, you can definitely tell that Saiguni is a historic UDP stronghold. Though leftist overall, the ZMP did better among the rurals than they did this year, so lets see how we see the isolated city of Iyasassu ends up going!" Beatrice said.

Iyasassu - Urban Seats - 9 Seats
PAP: 6 Seats
DCP: 2 Seats
UDP: 1 Seat

"The PAP did quite well - better than expected. Historically, the UDP took half of Saiguni's seats at minimum, so this might portend the other leftward parties taking up more oxygen than normal. Suiroto, on the other hand is the main overland trading hub to the west of the capital, pushing Saiguni goods into Mino and importing things overland that might not otherwise be good to ship overseas."

Suiroto - Urban Seats - 9 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
PAP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 2 Seats
UDP: 1 Seat

"Hence the greater than average support for the DCP here. Next up is the former fortress town of Imugumi - its fall allowed the Zellatian army to push into Saiguni and conquer most of the rest with relative ease, save for Iunais on the ocean. Imugumi itself is divided between retired military and active, so lets see how it went!"

Imugumi - Urban Seats - 10 Seats
ZMP: 4 Seats
UDP: 3 Seats
PAP: 2 Seats
ZCP: 1 Seat

"Not as well for the ZMP as they may have wanted. The PAP and ZCP siphoned off the typical seats that the ZMP would win. Next, Iunais, another drop of the DCP in an otherwise unfriendly province, approaches - the second largest city, its the main port for the province and sends its goods upstream to the rest of its people."

Iunais - Urban Seats - 19 Seats
DCP: 6 Seats
UDP: 5 Seats
PAP: 4 Seats
ZCP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 1 Seat

"The leftward shift of Iunais is a surprise," Sir Ezerek said, "though perhaps not in context of the northwestern provinces - the ZMP did quite well as a result of it absorbing the TPP, but without a solidified Technocratic party, it seems that there is little taste for the ZMP here. And lastly, the capital - likely to be a UDP stomp, but lets see."

Samai - Urban Seats - 21 Seats
UDP: 10 Seats
ZCP: 6 Seats
PAP: 3 Seats
DCP: 2 Seats

"Surprise, surprise. The DCP are barely represented and the ZMP are ousted from their little invasion of the city. Lets see where this leaves us!"

Saiguni - Total Seats - 105 Seats
UDP: 34 Seats
PAP: 18 Seats
DCP: 16 Seats
ZCP: 15 Seats
TSP: 9 Seats
ZMP: 6 Seats
ZPP: 4 Seats
GP: 3 Seats


Total Seats Won in 2021, by Party: 6,148 Seats
United Democratic Party: 1,021 Seats
Zellatian Moderate Party (ZMP-NTP Alliance): 986 Seats

Democratic Conservative Party: 868 Seats
Progressive Action Party: 804 Seats
Zellatian Communist Party (ZCP-TNC Alliance): 781 Seats

Radical Democratic Party: 367 Seats
Thelakisto-Socialist Party: 359 Seats
Green Party of Zellatia: 354 Seats
Community Rights Party: 316 Seats

Zellatian Peoples' Party (ZPP-FNF Alliance): 292 Seats


"Next," Beatrice began, "We move north to the Tigarian Isles. For many years, Tigaria was denied representation in the legislature due to past animosities - something that is changing this year, at the cost of their regional assembly. With broken promises abound, how do the peoples of the southern islands react? We start with the first conquest - Port Func!"

Port Func - Special Seats - 4 Seats
ZPP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 1 Seat

"As hardly anyone lives on Ilumbar Island's interior, there are only special seats," Beatrice explained. "First is the commercial port of Lumbikan. Historically, Lumbikan was a pre-existing settlement prior to Zellatian conquest, and served as one of two staging grounds to invade the rest of Tigaria."

Lumbikan - Urban Seats - 7 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats
ZPP: 3 Seats

"Port Func, on the other hand, was created to be the administrative center of the island, though it grew to be an economic powerhouse as the harbor proved to be deeper than expected, allowing bigger ships to dock there as opposed to Lumbikan. It is the more cosmopolitan of the two cities, though it is not majority local."

Port Func - Urban Seats - 13 Seats
UDP: 4 Seats
PAP: 4 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 2 Seats

"Together, Port Func is...!"

Port Func - Total Seats - 24 Seats
DCP: 7 Seats
ZPP: 6 Seats
UDP: 4 Seats
PAP: 4 Seats
ZCP: 2 Seats
ZMP: 1 Seat


Total Seats Won in 2021, by Party: 6,172 Seats
United Democratic Party: 1,025 Seats
Zellatian Moderate Party (ZMP-NTP Alliance): 987 Seats

Democratic Conservative Party: 875 Seats

Zellatian Communist Party (ZCP-TNC Alliance): 783 Seats

Radical Democratic Party: 367 Seats
Thelakisto-Socialist Party: 359 Seats
Green Party of Zellatia: 354 Seats
Community Rights Party: 316 Seats

Zellatian Peoples' Party (ZPP-FNF Alliance): 298 Seats


"Next up is the Island of Mehru. The denser populated of the southern Tigarian Isles, it was the face of resistance for many years as the Zellatians began to settle the province to tame it - which technically succeeded," Sir Ezerek explained.

Mehru - Rural Seats - 5 Seats
GP: 5 Seats

Mehru - Special Seats - 10 Seats
UDP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 3 Seats
DCP: 2 Seats
ZCP: 1 Seat
GP: 1 Seat

"So far it doesn't look like the ZPP have the rural or special advantage they had on Port Func. Will they do well in the cities here? Muhru, despite sounding similar to Mehru, was founded much earlier, purported to be the first place people began to live on the island - though it fell at the same time as Mehru to the Zellatian armada," Sir Ezerek explained.

Muhru - Urban Seats - 6 Seats
ZPP: 3 Seats
UDP: 2 Seats
ZMP: 1 Seat

"If the ZPP do well in Native Majority cities, then you might see them actually getting back to 5% - at the detriment of other parties."

Muras - Urban Seats - 7 Seats
ZPP: 4 Seats
PAP: 2 Seats
DCP: 1 Seat

"and the cycle continues. Despite the leftward leaning of Muras, it appears that the ZPP are doing quite well on the island. Will this extend to the smallest of the Colonial Ports?"

Port Aven - Urban Seats - 9 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats
ZPP: 2 Seats
UDP: 2 Seats
ZCP: 1 Seat

"Port Aven is once again won by the DCP. However, the ZPP's success here should not be understated - and the last major test will be in the native founded city of Zelaj."

Zelaj - Urban Seats - 11 Seats
ZPP: 7 Seats
ZMP: 4 Seats

"Incredible. And with the capital, the UDP's strongest hold in the region, how will it go? Note that Mehru is relatively leftist overall, so this feels like a strong reaction to the ZMP's dissolution of the local assemblies."

Mehru - Urban Seats - 12 Seats
UDP: 5 Seats
ZPP: 4 Seats
ZCP: 3 Seats

"And putting things together for the island province...!"

Mehru - Total Seats - 60 Seats
ZPP: 20 Seats
UDP: 12 Seats
ZMP: 8 Seats
DCP: 7 Seats
GP: 6 Seats
ZCP: 5 Seats
PAP: 2 Seats


Total Seats Won in 2021, by Party: 6,232 Seats
United Democratic Party: 1,037 Seats
Zellatian Moderate Party (ZMP-NTP Alliance): 995 Seats

Zellatian Communist Party (ZCP-TNC Alliance): 788 Seats

Radical Democratic Party: 367 Seats
Green Party of Zellatia: 360 Seats
Thelakisto-Socialist Party: 359 Seats
Zellatian Peoples' Party (ZPP-FNF Alliance): 318 Seats
Community Rights Party: 316 Seats


"And now the ZPP is back in the races," Sir Ezerek said, "Every party on the board is on track with getting enough to stay in this. Though, of course, there are plenty of seats to go, so who knows where everyone will end up? The ZPP have passed the CRP and the Greens have again passed the TSP. As we keep this going, lets get the last reported results for this vein, Muja!"

Muja - Rural Seats - 2 Seats
TSP: 2 Seats

Muja - Special Seats - 3 Seats
GP: 3 Seats

"Muja, save for the inland and special areas, is the home turf of Special Representative Chapra Gorra, leader of the PAP. As such, he holds heavy sway in the cities, which we'll report on all at once - this may be the first year another party besides the PAP win seats in the island's major towns."

Dekay - Urban Seats - 3 Seats
PAP: 2 Seats
UDP: 1 Seat

Tosok - Urban Seats - 3 Seats
PAP: 3 Seats

Ul'muja - Urban Seats - 8 Seats
PAP: 7 Seats
UDP: 1 seat

Muja - Total Seats - 19 Seats

UDP: 2 Seats


Total Seats Won in 2021, by Party: 6,251 Seats

"And with that, we have ourselves Southern Tigaria. Next will be the east, then the mainland, but until then, this has been Beatrice ZeTreppe and Sir Ezerek Neuhauser...see you in a little while."

ZNN National Election Update - Omptok, the Tigarian Gulf, Szin, and Zegrav
Image


"And welcome back everyone once again for more results. We have four more provinces today that we're going to share with you, so sit tight - next up is Omptok, one of the more militant islands in the province," Beatrice explained.

Omptok - Rural Seats - 5 Seats
ZMP: 4 Seats
TSP: 1 Seat

Omptok - Special Seats - 9 Seats
ZMP: 8 Seats
GP: 1 Seat

"As you can see, the ZMP is taking both its own place and that of the ZPP in the province due to its historic investment in the military facilities on the island. It was from Omptok that the effort to take the rest of the islands took place," Sir Ezerek explained, "and as a result, to this day the island trends conservative, though that's not quite the case in the capital. First, though, Orin - in the depths of the jungle, who is king?"

Orin - Urban Seats - 5 Seats
ZMP: 3 Seats
DCP: 2 Seats

"Svil, on the other hand, is the only major port on the south end of the island. It grew into prominence as the first landing of Zellatians on the island, but later became a smuggling point for advanced weaponry and drugs during the mid 20th century, which were almost used to fuel an insurrection in the region, which failed."

Svil - Urban Seats - 6 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 3 Seats

"And then, the capital, Ompto. Progressive compared to most of the rest of the island, it is nonetheless quite a populated area, filled with manufactories that feed the military-industrial complex of our country."

Ompto - Urban Seats - 21 Seats
PAP: 11 Seats
ZMP: 8 Seats
ZCP: 2 Seats

"Putting that all together for this province," Beatrice cut in, "Its a clear ZMP victory, though a weaker one than they likely expected."

Omptok - Total Seats - 46 Seats
ZMP: 26 Seats
PAP: 11 Seats
DCP: 5 Seats
ZCP: 2 Seats
TSP: 1 Seat
GP: 1 Seat


Total Seats Won in 2021, by Party: 6,297 Seats

"Next is the Tigarian Gulf. A small chain of islands that are, by Zellatian standards, a bit overpopulated considering the industries latent in the province, though you'd be mistaken - instead, the island chain is almost entirely devoted to spice harvesting, processing, and exporting. Cinnamon, vanilla, saffron, and more localized spices, such as Igrane Root and Silver Tumeric are harvested here. As they are uniform in that desire, we'll run through the entire provinces' results and talk up the totals...!" Beatrice explained, as all of the numbers rolled on.

Tigarian Gulf - Special and Rural Seats - 5 Seats

"This really was a net benefit for the ZPP, which was struggling before. While the outer areas of Tigaria have always had a strong autonomous spirit, partially due to the way that Tigaria historically governed itself, it really got peeved by the ZMP's decision to dissolve the regional legislatures in exchange for the creation of their national seats. We're seeing the impact here. As such, I doubt that the ZMP is going to be able to convince the ZPP to join its coalition...but its still anyone's game!"

Tigarian Gulf - Total Seats - 36 Seats
ZPP: 22 Seats

"And the CRP is officially below the threshold. Not getting any seats in last few provinces has really hurt it - hopefully it can build back its ground game elsewhere. For now, though, lets move to Szin and see what's up," Beatrice explained as the results began to come in.

Szin - Rural Seats - 2 Seats
GP: 2 Seats

Szin - Special Seats - 5 Seats
GP: 4 Seats
ZCP: 1 Seat

"While the ZPP don't have as strong of a hold on Szin as they do elsewhere in the outer Tigarian Isles, Szin does boast quite a sizable local population that hasn't intermarried as much with the Tigarians or Zellatians. This has led it to be somewhat unique, though for those of Vilt, it also brings opportunity, economically. It is a relatively open society as well, despite some occasional xenophobia against outsiders."

Vilt - Urban Seats - 7 Seats
PAP: 3 Seats
ZPP: 2 Seats
UDP: 2 Seats

"Jaszo, on the other hand, is more mercantile in its views. As one of the many ports in the region, it is home to a significant merchant marine population, as well as it being the main port on that side of the island."

Jaszo - Urban Seats - 7 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
PAP: 2 Seats
ZPP: 1 Seat
UDP: 1 Seat

Sir Ezerek continued, "Jangu, on the other hand, is the only port on the east side, the outwardly one, and receives much trade from Trapania, internal to Zellatia, and Andrenade, externally."

Jangu - Urban Seats - 12 Seats
ZPP: 5 Seats
UDP: 4 Seats
PAP: 3 Seats

"Last, Siza, the capital, is less cosmopolitan than you'd think - the majority of people living here are native, compared to just a plurality elsewhere, and it colors their politics, especially given the ZMP's actions."

Siza - Urban Seats - 13 Seats

"And now, here at our last stop, is the Island of Zegrav," Sir Ezerek said, as the results piled in. "As the history of the island is rather...bleak, I'll explain and then go through all the results at once. You see, during the 1965 civil war, things got pretty heated on the island. The local elites, unlike elsewhere, though that it was now their time to be independent, despite the odds of Zellatia not collapsing. While the nobles were disloyal, the people of Zegrav had long had a beneficial relationship to being part of Zellatia - shipping rights, guaranteed autonomy, a lack of enslaving them like the nobles insisted - so when they rose up, the people smashed them like a sack of cheese. Ever since, they've had very little nationalist sentiment - and that is shown by the ZPP's lack of success in the province, historically. Lets see those results, then, shall we, and go on our little break once more."

"Before we move on to Ettiki and Zeltik, note that both of those are foreign to the island as names go - which is true. Settled by Zellatian and Destronikan colonists, these people went out of their way to endear themselves with the locals, intermarrying and essentially becoming part of the society within a few generations. Though, the uniqueness of the culture on the island is in part due to them."

"And with that, we're out of time for this section," Beatrice said, "We've got to get the big ol' chart for the mainland Tigarian provinces, which are as much a mystery as the rest of the islands. From everyone here, I'm Beatrice ZeTreppe and he's Sir Ezerek Neuhauser - Signing off for now."

ZNN National Election Update - Rawran, Yrana, Tigranopouli Proper, and Bijha

"What can be said of the ruins of empire?" Sir Ezerek said, face somber. "Tigaria was the preeminent rival of Zellatia for most of its existence - no nation ever successfully planted a puppet Emperor on the throne of Zellatia, much less three times, and it was that constant conflict that kept Zellatia from conquering other parts of the continent for a long time - after all, we couldn't afford to risk our north flank. So when Tigaria was conquered, the rest of what is now Zellatia fell like a house of cards. And yet, with that victory came what is known among scholars as the Hollow Age. Technological progress stagnated and the Andrenadine Colonization of the northeast, home to no peoples of note to Zellatian historians, happened with barely any reaction. It wasn't until the late 19th century that technological progress began to reemerge in Zellatia, but by then we were far behind many. We are still a decade behind in some fields," he said, sadly. "But we have proven we are a modern country, I should hope. Lets see Rawran. We will be going through this with less commentary and more progress by the various parties."

"In the olden days, the Tigarian Communist Party fought in the jungles of Tigaria to create an independent country out of Tigaria once more. Unfortunately, given that the majority of the leaders of the movement were foreign-educated elites with little in common with the working class of the island, they only had moderate success - the island as a whole has a significant leftist tradition as a result and you won't see the UDP dominating here like they would in otherwise similar areas."

"The fortress of Rawran was an important step to taking the island, but just the southern approach would not allow the Zellatia armies the maneuverability it would need to take Tigranopoulos. They would also need to control the seas, so the army advanced no further."

"Next would be the province of Yrana. You might be wondering where Beatrice is - she is currently confirming some troubling news we've received out of Arke. We will hopefully have some information for you soon, but it appears the Zelikar's Pride terrorist group may be involved in another attempt to - well, until we have more we cannot speculate. I'm sure its all over social media, so I'll just keep the count going."

"Rissona is likely to be on the odder side due to its history - it didn't exist until a few hundred years ago, as it was not needed as a naval port due to the nearby city of Yrakadda. However, after an earthquake, the island of Yrakadda was sunk beneath the waves and the Empire was bereft of the port that existed there - thus it remains heavily militarized, rather than influenced by the local history."

"New Tigra, on the other hand, was founded by Zellatians who found the climate of the island's capital to be too dreary - a vacation community for the nouveau riche of the Empire. It was founded in 1902 and has seen growth in recent years due to the fabulous beaches there."

"As the Communists continue to catch up to the PAP in the province and by proxy, the DCP, we see the ZMP's anemic performance in the province continue - though the UDP is doing hardly better. And while the CRP is doing better, they haven't yet gotten back over the 5% barrier - and they'll need to have done well in the rest of Tigaria to pass back over it. Moving on to Tigranopoulos Proper, the most populous province on the island - lets see how it went."

"Oof," Sir Ezerek said, "It looks like the gains of the ZPP to get out of last have come to naught on Tigaria Island. Still, the Communists have significantly narrowed the gap between them and the Progressives and the DCP's failure to gain many votes on Tigaria may come back to bite them. Still, we still have one more province on Tigaria - Bijha. The smallest province on the island."

"And with that, the Communists have managed to get into 4th place! Though its unlikely to be permanent, it does run in line with the polling they mentioned before the results for anywhere came in. The 3rd, 4th, and 5th place is likely to be heavily contested, but in the meantime, we- oh. Well then," he said, interrupted his spiel as he listened to someone talking into his earpiece.

"I see. Unfortunate. We have more news, as it is."



ZNN News Election Update - Mostras Zelkann, leader of the Democratic Conservative Party, Assassinated at Election Party, along with five guests



"It is with my deepest sadness that I must report that the leader of the Democratic Conservative Party, Mostras Zelkann, was assassinated at his home along with some of his guests, as a bomb went off during one of his speeches. The perpetrator, thankfully, has already been caught along with his accomplices, but this is another attack by the group known as Zelikar's Pride. His wife and three children were injured in the attack, but besides the emotional scarring from such an event, I am sure that they will physically recover," Sir Ezerek said, teary-eyed. Clearing his throat, he continued, "among the dead is school teacher Adriana Zelatta, local businessman Jakob Zelarti, bodyguard for the party leader, Irngardi Murthi, and two interns who are not of disclosure age for this broadcast."

"I will also report that a similar bomb attack was thwarted at Special Representative and Progressive Action Party leader Chapra Gorra's apartment this afternoon, but we are only getting notification of the death of the attacks by Zellatian Military Police as of this broadcast. When we know more, we will strive to inform the public."

"Until then, dear listeners, stay safe and be vigilant - these monsters could attack again if we are not careful."

"Welcome back," Beatrice said, clearly looking exhausted. "We still have two more provinces in the Tigaria region before we return to the mainland - as such, we will be rushing through the rest of Tigaria before getting the results in for the rest.

"And with that the Communists are within striking distance of 3rd and the ZPP have leapt back over the CRP and overtaken the RDP, who have found no luck outside of their powerbase. Moving on to the last part of Tigaria, Hanif, we regret to inform you that the fatalities at the incident in Narke have grow to 8 fatalities overall as three people succumbed to their wounds in the hospital.

"And the Communists officially take 3rd!" Beatrice said, Sir Ezerek returning to the room and sitting with her.

"We have further news - an assassination attempt was also made against the Communist leader, Stevie Who, but a volunteer leapt in the way of the bullet and the assailant was captured - what does this mean for our country that this keeps happening," Sir Ezerek asked to no one in particular. "Thankfully there's only been one success...but even one is too many. We hope that the next Prime Minister gets to the bottom of this terrorist conspiracy."

"And with that, lets move on to the mainly and the province of Hange Na, the easternmost Jinnamese province. As we are still absorbing things somewhat, we will take some time to get through this and rush through the region's results. We apologize and will make sure that a Rebroadcast will contain better commentary from us after the fact."

"Lunatus was originally founded as a trading post with the Jinnamese by the rulers of Vokal, though in time it was eclipsed by other posts surrounding their neighbor in importance. In time, it instead became an agricultural hub, and has expanded as such ever since, though growth has been anemic in recent years," Sir Ezerek explained.

"Makrina has an interesting history. During the 1965 Civil War, like other places, it declared independence, as the Republic of the Makrima Valley - it survived a whopping 5 years before being conquered, in part due to the valley's relative remoteness at the time. Highways that now go through the region, connecting it to Monikkik in the southwest, have only increased the city's importance. It is the most anti-monarch city in the province, so will the RDP win here?"

"Fort Zelka, on the other hand, is an ancient Zellatian fortress in comparison. Founded to keep the Lunavian raiders from attacking the Zellatian heartland, it was relatively successful, even conquering nearby smaller tribes during ancient times and Zellatianizing them. However, the city is somewhat isolated otherwise, the roads that connect it to either province not in the best shape."

Fort Zelka - Urban Seats - 21 Seats
ZCP: 11 Seats
ZMP: 6 Seats
PAP: 2 Seats
GP: 2 Seats

"And the capital, entertainment and cultural hub, is Vokal - one of the biggest cities in Zellatia. The banking sector especially is powerful here, lets see how it ends up!"

"And the Communists continue to pull away, though the Conservatives and Progressives are not far behind. The Radical Democratic Party is back over the CRP and the Greens are 9 seats away from a guaranteed seat. We'll return later on with the rest of this part of Zellatia before jumping south to Pederon. From everyone here at ZNN, I'm Beatrice ZeTreppe-"

"And I'm Sir Ezerek Neuhauser. See you all again real soon."

ZNN National Election Update - Astar, Jinnam, Pederon Lowlands, Pederon Midlands, and Pederon Highlands

"As we continue with the area around Lake Vokal, do be vigilant of your surroundings - one of the parliamentarian candidates, PAL 8000, an artificial intelligence, was quite literally destroyed with a DDOS attack, followed by the deletion of every instance of PAL 8000 in his 'home' city of Fort Edron. As there are very few artificial intelligences deemed capable of running for office, or without supervision, this is a tragedy. No known figure has claimed responsibility," Beatrice explained, a little sad as the results for Astar began to show behind her.

Astar - Rural Seats - 12 Seats
GP: 6 Seats
TSP: 3 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats
CRP: 1 Seat

Astar - Special Seats - 7 Seats
ZPP: 6 Seats
DCP: 1 Seat

"First up is the military port of Seliniki, founded by Destronikan colonists in the 16th century. To this day it has a more military bent, but who will win it over?"

Seliniki - Urban Seats - 6 Seats
PAP: 4 Seats
ZMP: 2 Seats

"Aluna, on the other hand, is famous for its surf and turf meals, which it ironically gets from Selinikan fisherpeople. What will that mean electorally?"

Aluna - Urban Seats - 15 Seats
UDP: 7 Seats
ZMP: 4 Seats
TSP: 2 Seats
DCP: 1 Seat
CRP: 1 Seat

"Astran, the capital, was once the administrative hub of the entire region prior to Provincialization in the 18th century. However, it still remains one of the larger cities in the region and boasts a sophisticated technology sector, specifically in the high-grade electronic hardware variety."

Astran - Urban Seats - 35 Seats
UDP: 7 Seats
ZMP: 7 Seats
DCP: 6 Seats
CRP: 6 Seats
ZCP: 5 Seats

"With the results totaled up, lets see how Astar ended up for the various parties...!"

Astar - Total Seats - 75 Seats

"It seems the CRP has re-overtaken the RDP now, for who knows how long it will be? Next up," Sir Ezerek said, "is the last of the two provinces of Jinnam, Jinnam itself. The entire country was once divided into six different kingdoms, Hojin in the west being the most powerful - though it did it no good as the Zellatian legions entered Jinnam and, over the centuries, conquered the entire land."

Jinnam - Rural Seats - 34 Seats
ZPP: 11 Seats
CRP: 8 Seats
ZMP: 8 Seats
GP: 4 Seats
TSP: 2 Seats
UDP: 1 Seat

Jinnam - Special Seats - 13 Seats
ZPP: 7 Seats
CRP: 3 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats

"Starting off with Gubhi, the city was once a tributary to Hojin at its height - difficult to conquer the peoples of the region due to the hills nearby, it held out longer than any of the Jinnamese states, now primarily just a stone and copper mining region and remains relatively rustic by Zellatian standards."

Gubhi - Urban Seats - 5 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats
PAP: 1 Seat

"Ikaeu, by contrast, was conquered before any of the other regions of this part of Jinnam for its centrality - a bored governor conquered the place with an army he'd just used to put down a revolt. Today, it remains dominated by trade."

Ikaeu - Urban Seats - 9 Seats
DCP: 6 Seats
UDP: 2 Seats
ZCP: 1 Seat

"Tongbae, on the other hand, was far more difficult to contend with. The martial traditions of Tongbae along with Hojin, their ally in the war, allowed them to repel several invasions of the region - once its own people rebelled, it gave the Zellatians the opening to conquer both this city and Hojin. It remains home to a number of mines and foundries to this day."

Tongbae - Urban Seats - 23 Seats
UDP: 8 Seats
DCP: 7 Seats
ZMP: 6 Seats
PAP: 1 Seat
ZCP: 1 Seat

"Mighty Hojin refused to submit for a time. The siege of the city lasted 15 years before it finally succumbed to outside pressure - relief from outside via the sea made that easy. Today it is home to a technology sector on par with Astran, though it ships most of its cheaper goods to Xuande-Xiphoi."

"And unfortunately," Beatrice began, "The Communists have once against fallen to fourth. If they don't do well in Pederon, they'll lose that too and fall to fifth once again. On the other side, the ZPP have surpassed the TSP in total and the CRP has again passed by the RDP - though the RDP has a big presence in Pederon, so its anyone's guess how they'll do. With that, lets start with the Pederon Lowlands...!"

Pederon Lowlands - Rural Seats - 32 Seats
TSP: 16 Seats

ZMP: 6 Seats
CRP: 2 Seats
ZPP: 1 Seat

Pederon Lowlands - Special Seats - 11 Seats
PAP: 6 Seats
ZMP: 4 Seats
ZPP: 1 Seat

"Starting with Embelem, its ties with Zealia in the east means that there are more Zealians than Pederonians, and the DCP is the strongest party. The RDP, notably, have no presence here either, leaving an opening for the UDP."

Embelem - Urban Seats - 7 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats
UDP: 3 Seats

"Whereas Ederro, on the border with Zrunvia, is a bit of a wildcard politically. Aligning with devolutionist forces, how will it fare?"

Ederro - Urban Seats - 11 Seats
ZPP: 7 Seats
CRP: 2 Seats
GP: 2 Seats

"Panrhos is equally the same sort of place, but to what extent?"

Panrhos - Urban Seats - 12 Seats
ZPP: 6 Seats
CRP: 3 Seats
RDP: 3 Seats

"And lastly," Beatrice explained, Fort Edron is a military base that was built on the old capital of the Lowlands, Edronis, which was sacked by the Zellatian armies during the invasion of the region. These days its an important base for weapons testing due to its position, and for convoy vehicle building."

Fort Edron - Urban Seats - 21 Seats
PAP: 6 Seats

"Putting the totals on the board, we have..."

"And, unfortunately for the Communists, they've slid back to 5th. Nonetheless, another respectable showing considering that they now have one in nine seats being contested in this election. The Greens, which wasn't mentioned before," Sir Ezerek explained, "have passed the required 5% mark and the ZPP is looking to follow suit shortly, followed by the TSP. The question becomes, will the CRP do well enough in the rest of Zellatia to match, as will the RDP? Let us see how Pederon, one of the largest cities in Zellatia, has an effect."

Pederon Midlands - Rural Seats - 15 Seats
TSP: 6 Seats
GP: 4 Seats
ZMP: 3 Seats
RDP: 1 Seat
UDP: 1 Seat

Pederon Midlands - Special Seats - 11 Seats
DCP: 6 Seats
CRP: 5 Seats

"Panzed, which is the main port for the province, has only grown in size as more and more materials need to be shipped out of Pederon's highlands and midlands and sent abroad. Most of the high-grade goods created in Xuande-Xiphoi can trace their mineral resources back to the Pederon Mid and Highlands, in part due to the vast mining complexes littered throughout the range."

Panzed - Urban Seats - 12 Seats
ZMP: 6 Seats
RDP: 6 Seats

"Pederon itself is also home to the largest and most sophisticated fabrication and manufacturing works in the country. This is in part due to the high prevalence of high-valued metals, such as silicon, rare earth metals, gold, silver, platinum, cobalt, and more, with Pederon being the leading hub for such things in many years. As a result, most of the people living in Pederon can only trace their lineage a few generations back at most in this province and a significant chunk were born overseas in non-Zellatian territories."

Beatrice cut Sir Ezerek before he said anything, "And while the Communists remain in fifth, they are catching up again to the PAP. And the Moderates are catching up to the UDP due to their weakness in the south...as well, the RDP has jumped back over the CRP and the ZPP has crossed the 5% threshold. It looks like all parties will make the cut this time around. Further, the TSP is one seat away from the 5% requirement and we're inching every closer to 8K seats decided. Lets go to the last province of the bunch, the Pederon Highlands!"

Pederon Highlands - Rural Seats - 4 Seats
TSP: 1 Seat

"Knizayke is home to the Deep Mines of Pederon. Down thousands and thousands of meters, mines that bring up oil, natural gas, and coal work around the city of Kniazyke. You might ask, 'all of that is close?' and you'd be right to ask. But most of the mines go deeper than any human can go, hence why most of the operations are remote and mostly automated - the mountains surrounding Kniazyke and a seam beneath the Great Frozen Lake are filled with extractable resources and the most common occupation is Mine Owner, not miner."

Kniazyke - Urban Seats - 25 Seats
CRP: 16 Seats
RDP: 6 Seats
ZMP: 3 Seats

"Dor also has its share of material wealth. Vast fungi farms beneath Dor, as well as vast biotech and aerospace facilities means that the items mined nearby are quickly turned around and used for localized research."

Dor - Urban Seats - 26 Seats
CRP: 16 Seats
ZPP: 5 Seats
ZMP: 3 Seats
PAP: 1 Seat
DCP: 1 Seat

"Krasi is the port for more...odd goods coming out of Pederon. As per what, I couldn't tell you - all is known is that it is for domestic consumption and the construction of the Zellatian Naval Annex there, building the warships of tomorrow and setting out to explore the depths of the Arctic."

Krasi - Urban Seats - 40 Seats
DCP: 16 Seats
ZMP: 14 Seats
RDP: 10 Seats

"Fross, the administrative capital of the Highlands, was one of the few places that voluntarily surrendered to Zellatia when the armies came in. No fight, the Fross Moors would have delayed the Zellatian troops, but for how long? However, since then, they have served as admirable stewards of the region and the vast mining complexes in the nearby mountains has led to it being one of the wealthier cities in Zellatia."

Fross - Urban Seats - 38 Seats

"With that, the Moderates have surpassed the UDP for first. Likewise, the Conservatives are pulling away from the ZCP and the Progressives, while the RDP, CRP, and TSP have crossed the 5% threshold. All seated parties have qualified!" Sir Ezerek seat, clearing his throat. "On that note, we'll be taking a short break and finish up the coastline between Lake Vokal and Pederon over the next few section - we're nearly in the last 1,000 everyone! See you all again, soon!"

Her double, Denise, lounged in the armored limousine central to the convoy. Giggling between sips from a wine bottle, she relished in the chaos that resulted from the multiple attempted assassination from the election, not fully aware of the situation but maintaining her character as the ambassador.

“No more for tonight, pass it over. How about a sip for me?” asserts the agent known as Jestin, whom reaches for the devil's grapejuice.

“Reaching for these?” she teases, flaunting her chest to the other passengers."

“Not exactly. Leave the sleaze to me, it doesn't suit you."

Head Car
DDA Embassy Convoy
Revnami

Ambassador Paralle sat tight between two armored men in an armored SUV, herself looking more like one of her security escorts than the ambassador with her overt body armor and semi tactical attire. Thick tactical glasses and her red wig further obscured her identity.

"are you content with your message, Ambassador?" asked the driver over closed comms. He glanced, at his cabin mirror, to be greeted with grimaces.

The Ambassador flips her bangs aside. "Not at all. I spoke with the Chancellor Regent before we left. As polite as he was, it seems that the Directory is losing faith in the election's integrity, let alone regional. What I had to do was giftwrap feces and hand deliver it. Easy for them since it has myname, not any of theirs. "

“Sounds bad, Ambassador. What was said?”

"
Good evening, Ambassador Landrek,
First and foremost, we express our condolences for the loss of ZCP Leader Mostras Zelkann. His pursuit to moving forward, past a divisionary line and past financial stagnation was admirable. Knowing the risks involved in his profession, he represented his party with dignity to his unfortunate demise. May his strength endure.

Following up with the previous inquiry, the DDA wanted assurance that Zellatian foreign policy remained somewhat amicable. However, due to continued acts of terrorism, any prospects of removing the DMZ may be delayed until concessions can be made pertaining to maintaining stability and the protection of your candidates."

The Office of the Consul, Ambassador


As Ambassador Landrek looked at the message, he could only pinch the bridge of his nose. The Andrenadine Ministry isn't exactly the kind that is capable of being any less ham-handed when it comes to their isolationist stances, can they? Whatever the case may have been, he had to respond, even as he monitored the polling stations in Xuande-Xiphoi. Thankfully, there had been a method to the madness to allow expatriate voting - those living in Xuande-Xiphoi, and abroad, were able to vote in the week ahead of election day, with the few actually voting today more or less being the dregs - Zellatia, even with its expatriate population abroad, had a voting rate of 76% after all. That was last year anyways.

It was on track to being 82% this year. A new record. Even with the clear lack of confidence in Zellatia's elections that the Andrenadine government seemed to extol, Ambassador Landrek knew that at the very least it was better than the election in the 90's. 25% participation was...not good. Still, as he yawned as he finally got around to listening to the message a fourth time, he sent back a response that was sure to rankle some feathers.

"First, I would like to thank you for your expressed condolences. I am make sure to send your sorrows to MP Zelkann's family on your behalf so that they may gain a modicum more of peace. I will correct whoever did the research for you into the situation, as Mostra Zelkann was the leader of the Democratic Conservative Party, NOT the Zellatian Communist Party. Please retrain your interns, who I assume helped you with this message.

Secondly, however, the DDA's request for assurances are an insult, especially in the face of an open and free election. There has been no activity in the last eight years that would warrant such a request, even with this spate of terrorist attacks which have little to do with the Demilitarized Zone. We are reminded that the DMZ is for both of our benefits and given that half of the annual visitors to the DMZ are members of the Andrenadine public, it seems that the current situation can be best described as a passive benefit to both your country and ours. Whoever is to become the Prime Minister will likely look forward to talks without preconditions and to insist on some right out of the gate is an insult which I can only assume is not intended.

Regardless, we thank you for your time and look forward to better relations between our two countries, regardless of who is in my position come this time next year, be it myself or someone else. For the hope of our wider region, we can only seek peace - we hope that Andrenade is of the same persuasion.

Thank you for your time, Ambassador Paralle.

- Sincerely, Ambassador Zelgar Landrek.


Whoever was giving Ambassador Lana Paralle her marching orders had to be an idiot, he decided, wondering what kind of stupidity his successor would have to deal with. He doubted he would be chosen again.

"As we continue, we are now heading down the coast, nearly to Pederon. Five more provinces in this particular section," Beatrice explained. "Lets start with Monikik!"

Monikik - Special Seats - 7 Seats
ZPP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 2 Seats

"At one point in time, Nachua was the preeminent port along the coast. Then the Zellatian army came, conquering it like it had the rest of northern Monikik. To this day, the port hasn't recovered in prominence and most of its industrious citizens leave the province, though some stay and maintain agricultural industries."

Nachua - Urban Seats - 7 Seats
ZPP: 3 Seats
GP: 2 Seats
ZCP: 2 Seats

"Zelotl'a on the other hand was a colonial project. While lightly settled by natives, the area was required to be secured due to the forest heading south - and so, after a time, it was conquered."

Zelotl'a - Urban Seats - 12 Seats
ZPP: 3 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
ZCP: 3 Seats
UDP: 3 Seats

"Atchitok has long been the largest port in this part of the coast. As the last stop before the rest of the Bay of Atchitotl, Atchitok remains important in the maritime industries of the province."

"And it looks like the UDP and ZMP are again tied!" Sir Ezerek said, "are the Greens and ZPP. The Communists have overtaken the Progressives, but who is to say where things will go from here? It's still too tied to tell! With that, let us go down into Rhyg and see where it goes."

Rhyg - Rural Seats - 7 Seats

"Rhygar was at one point the capital of Rhyg, but following an earthquake in 1755, the city was largely destroyed and the administration was move to Isrho in the west. While the city has since recovered somewhat, it still hasn't been renamed as the capital."

Rhygar - Urban Seats - 10 Seats

"The ties have been broken," Beatrice explained. "The UDP is officially in the lead once again, the PAP is catching up with the Communists, and the ZPP are outpacing the Greens once more. Next up is the Drylands of Solaoni!"

"Scelen, the City of Arches, can be best described as the Designed City. Built in the 1950's in the hinterlands of Solaoni, it's design remarkably led to a prosperous, walkable city that was later reflected in Zelatun's redesigns in recent years. Though, it still has a sizable mining and quarry industry, along with limited agriculture."

Scelen - Urban Seats - 8 Seats

PAP: 2 Seats

"Solaon is one of those cities that straddles a huge flood plain - closer to the coast it is difficult to plant buildings, and further the ground is too lifeless to use. So, the vast agricultural network around the town, the salt plains mined for resources, all of it together creates a unique and vibrant city of dyes and spices."

"We're in the home stretch now," Beatrice explained, "the ZMP is back in the lead, the Progressives have leaped back over the Communists, and the RDP is back over the Greens. The question is, what will move next? Let's find out what it says in Iwadda!"

"The province is looking to be pretty evenly divided," Beatrice said. "First is the city of Ikras, the province's only port and at one time, only city of note. While it served as an administrative center for Zellatia for a time, when the province was divided off from Solaoni, Fort Iwaddai was chosen as the seat. Today it is mostly a business-focused city, legal and agricultural focii in mind."

Ikras - Urban Seats - 5 Seats

As Sir Ezerek continued, he coughed, "Whereas Tivicura is a vast mining and agricultural town - with mining on the east bank and agriculture on the north and west banks. It was a former military outpost, then called Fort Ivicura, but over time it came out of use and dropped the for, becoming Tivicura."

"As we get into the final thousand seats, everyone here is on edge to find out how things went. Lets first see the last of the southern seats and probably the last seats that the Radical Democratic Party is going to get in Rasparnia!" Beatrice said, as the entire province's results began to roll out. "As its getting late, we'll be punching through the area quickly."

Rasparnia - Rural Seats - 14 Seats

"Whereas Ipandar is...pretty much the same, but with more farming."

"Really phoned that in, Beatrice," Sir Ezerek teased.

"Sorry, Rasparnia is where I grew up. It's boring."

"Well, now, I guess that makes sense. Want me to take over from here?"

"Yeah, sure," she said, shuffling his paperwork.

"Next up is Gradesh, the western part of Genjizo - thought we were done, were you? There are two provinces in 'western' Genjizo, Gradesh and Udalpar, both of which we'll be covering next!"

Gradesh - Rural Seats - 5 Seats

Gradesh - Special Seats - 6 Seats

Udelgar - Urban Seats - 5 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats

"Such as Dvana - home to Dvana Food and Beverages, the vast resources of the Dvana Produce Company and its affiliates are known throughout the world, which has vast green houses around the city to make sure its primary export is available year 'round!"

"Last is the inland center of Sirisote, which was formerly the spiritual center of the Genjizo region before its absorption into the greater Thelakist faith.

"At the edge of the peninsula," Sir Ezerek began, "is Zazzua. An odd mixture of Zeathi and Udalpari architecture, the city is a testament of a cultural mix as well as the military presence here dating back to the old Zellatian exploratory days."

Zazzua - Urban Seats - 8 Seats
ZMP: 4 Seats
UDP: 3 Seats
PAP: 1 Seat

"Patalakina, on the other hand, was a pirate stronghold long before it was Zellatian - it belonged only to the pirates of the area and its conquest ended the end of the Age of Piracy in northwestern Zellatia that lasted nearly two hundred years with the fall of Tigaria."

Patalakina - Urban Seats - 10 Seats

"With that the Communists are back into fourth place, though their position remains very tenuous. We're getting into one of the larger provinces next that remain, Zeath - nearly 150 seats in this province along, a full 25% of the remaining total. How will this change things? Lets find out!"

"Historically one of the Moderates' best provinces, local elections in recent years have put into question the ability for the Moderates to function here - many disgruntled members of the armed forces are disappointed by the reduced sentences insisted upon for surrendering members of the FSP and Sabre-rattling of the Prime Minister. Will that translate to the PAP?"

Zeluruma - Urban Seats - 20 Seats

"For now, it appears that the ZMP's poor showing in Zeath has led to them tying with the UDP - there are only four mainland provinces to go and then the Near Isles to the west that, combined, only have 216 seats. We're getting close to the end folks," Sir Ezerek said, as he patted Beatrice on the shoulder, who sat up with a shock.

"We're all getting pretty beat here, but stay with us for the next hour and we'll find those results out! See you all again after the next commercial break!"

ZNN National Election Update - Demino, Mino, Zemin, and Orvea

"Welcome back to our coverage of the Fifth National Election here in Zellatia. We resume with the last parts of the Zellatian mainland before we head off into the west with the Zellatian Near Isles," Beatrice explained, as the results began to flash behind her. "First up for today is Demino!"

Demino - Rural Seats - 15 Seats

Demino - Special Seats - 7 Seats
ZMP: 5 Seats
UDP: 1 Seat
ZCP: 1 Seat

"The city of Umibishi is the province's only real port due to the craggy coastline in the north. Most trade heading out of the province is instead sent to Iunais, though Umibishi, in recent years, has grown tremendously as the new Umibishi to Demui highway has been built, along with the new rail line going there," Sir Ezerek explained.

Umibishi - Urban Seats - 5 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats
ZMP: 1 Seat

"Demin at one point was named Zaidetsu during older times, but during the late 14th century, long after Zellatian conquest of the region, the then governor of the region, Ishiguro, renamed quite a number of cities after his lovers - he was overthrown a decade later in a popular revolt, but the name stuck. Today, Demin is one of the more independent minded cities in Zellatia."

Demin - Urban Seats - 11 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats
CRP: 4 Seats
ZMP: 3 Seats

"Demui, the capital, suffered under Ishiguro perhaps worst of all - the old name, Daizamura, taken away - as many of its people were forced to toil in mines in the hills to the south. Demui is holding a referendum later this year to rename the city to what it should be and we should be happy to see what the results are."

Demui- Urban Seats - 21 Seats

"And the Moderates pull away from the UDP here once more. Will the UDP be able to recover? Lets find out how they do in Mino," Beatrice said, as the results for the next province came in.

Mino - Rural Seats - 21 Seats

"Port Kishin, on the western coast, was once the preeminent port in the greater Mino region - and then the northern fringes, thought to be worth nothing, were settled by people from another country. As the new province of Orvea became richer and richer, the opulence that once described Port Kishin faded away, leaving it a quiet, if sometimes busy port when the other western ports are filled up," Beatrice explained.

Port Kishin - Urban Seats - 5 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats
PAP: 1 Seat

"Mitsuhiro, on the other hand, has grown rich from the overland trade with Orvea, the first stop along the Eiruvian Highway that stretched from Eiru, in Orvea, to Dor in the Pederon Highlands in the far south. Agriculture and Education are the other two major industries, hence its remarkably leftist bent."

Mitsuhiro - Urban Seats - 27 Seats
UDP: 7 Seats
ZCP: 7 Seats
PAP: 6 Seats
DCP: 4 Seats
ZMP: 3 Seats

"Lastly, the ancient capital of the entire region. Mino. Unlike many other areas, Mino was united when the Zellatians came - and the sheer size of Mino's armies at the edge of the Zellatia world meant that it took a century to conquer. To this day, the people here are prideful of that time, though loyal."

"Not much movement there," Sir Ezerek said, "Though the Greens have surpassed the RDP and the ZPP has moved up even further from their tie. The UDP is starting to catch up to the ZMP, but will it be enough? Let us see how Zemin goes next!"

Zemin - Rural/Special Seats - 20 Seats

"The easternmost port in the province, Kanoshida would be one of the first naval conquests during Zellatia's invasion - ironically one of the few 'free ports' Mino allowed with other countries."

Kanoshida - Urban Seats - 9 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
PAP: 3 Seats
UDP: 3 Seats

"Anato, on the other hand, is the City of Revolutions. It was here and in Misakino that Ishiguro's downfall were planned and the rich history of governments changing hands one way or another thrive in this mining town."

Anato - Urban Seats - 10 Seats
ZCP: 6 Seats
DCP: 3 Seats
UDP: 1 Seat

"Misakino is an odd city - built on craggy beaches at the southwest of the province, it rose to prominence due to smuggling and it was that black market presence that fueled the revolution. To this day, it remains one of the seedier towns in Zellatia, though still quite working class due to the active docks."

Misakino - Urban Seats - 18 Seats
ZCP: 6 Seats
DCP: 6 Seats
PAP: 4 Seats
ZMP: 1 Seat

"Zelomino, on contrast, was never rebellious against Ishiguro - he was from the place after all and it was lavished with gifts. Though, at the time, it was called Zemino. It was renamed upon Zellatian conquest of the region by an especially stupid general."

Zelomino - Urban Seats - 22 Seats

"Lets bring it on home for continental Zellatia with the 'newest' province in Zellatia. Nidano was a small port town when the city of Eiru was founded by foreign investors - Nidano grew along with the, at first, smaller city, but as Eiru flooded with foreigners and locals looking to strike it rich, so too did Nidano get richer - though it was soon dwarfed. Lets just bet it all on blue and see where things went," Sir Ezerek said.

The UDP is officially at 15% of the total seats and have passed the ZMP, the Communists continue to pull away from the Progressives, the CRP has launched into 6th, and all's left is the next update - we'll be doing them without any commentary at all given that its close to midnight here. Thank you everyone for following this amazing election and we'll be back in twenty minutes for the rest!"

"Here we are," Sir Ezerek said, drinking a mai tai through a silly straw, "The end of the election. Who would've guessed that we'd have the results we are having right now?"

"Not me," Beatrice said, sipping some coffee, "though I expected the colon cancer for you."

"Well aren't you rude tonight. Not even bothering to stab me save for with your words?"

"I can get the sword back out."

"No thanks. Anyways, lets start with Little Kaibo. Why is it called that when there isn't a Big Kaibo? Simple. Big Kaibo sunk into the sea in 1553 following a massive eruption, killing the three hundred thousand inhabitants of the island. To this day, it is unclear what happened to the cities of the island - deep sea dives have confirmed a lack of any evidence there ever was another island. Creepy."

"And there we have it," Beatrice said, sighing and shaking her head. "The Fifth National Election has been tabulated and the winners have been decided. Further, it appears that-"

"Hold on," Sir Ezerek said, his brow furrowed. "I, seriously? It appears that the Thelakisto-Socialist Party is having a sudden change of sorts. Nearly half of the 'to be seated' have switched their allegiance to the Neo-Thelakistine Party. Is that allowed?"

"Lets see...did they cite Election Law at all?"

"It does appear so. Section 1055(D)(1)(a) states that 'if at least 25% of a qualifying party wishes to change allegiance during the tabulation of an election, they may do so by affidavit to the party leader. Which is, apparently, what they have just done. Let us update the board accordingly."

"And that would mean that the TSP no longer qualifies for seating! When did this news come to us and when did it actually happen?" Beatrice asked Sir Ezerek.

"Fifteen minutes ago. They need to work fast to- well, that was indeed fast," Sir Ezerek said, clearing his throat. "Of the 297 seated members of the TSP who remain loyal, 223 have agreed to join the ZCP Alliance and 74 have agreed to join with the Progressives. This is unprecedented, but allowed in the rules. Wait, this means...the Communists might be, Stevie Who might be the next Prime Minister?"

Total Seats Won in 2021, by Party: 9,000 Seats

"Yeah," Beatrice said, blinking, "She's...literally 32 years old and she might be the next Prime Minister. She's barely younger than me. Holy...erm. Anyways, why do you look so happy Ezerek?"

"Bahaha, you don't understand. I bet 10,000 Zellatian Gold Dollars on a ZCP led government. The odds were 10,000 to 1. I'm rich!"

"Wait, so you would have won over a HUNDRED MILLION ZELLATIAN GOLD DOLLARS!?" she said, blinking as she downed more of her coffee. "That's. Uh. Will you be retiring?"

"Absolutely!"

"Well, I suppose you deserve it."

"Oh, don't be like that, I'll pay you a cut - you've been a great partner in all this election coverage and you've earned it."

"I, uh....thanks?"

"Anyways, I think it's time to cut to commercial. We'll provide news fit to print as it happens, so come back tomorrow morning!"


[In case anyone was wondering about the results, I'm just as surprised as all of you - while this is the only forum where I post the results, I did get votes from other social platforms, which did culminate in the results you're seeing right now. Certain parties overperformed by base metrics, such as the ZCP, ZMP, and PAP, but the UDP and DCP underperformed as well, as did the TSP, hence the situation.]

ZNN National Election Update - Wheeling and Dealing Behind the Scenes?


"And we are back with our second day of coverage of the negotiations happening between the various parties to determine who will be our country's next Prime Minister and the direction the country is going. Reportedly, the Zellatian Communist Party and the United Democratic Party, who is now treating the Radical Democratic Party as a formal alliance partner, have been deep in discussions over the last few days to find a road map. Reportedly, the Zellatian Moderate Party has also reached out to the Communists, but have been rebuffed on account of 'bad faith' exhibited by their coalition partner, the Neo-Thelakistine Party at the end of the election," Sir Ezerek said, looking a little more lively than during his earlier coverage.

"Further, it appears that the left-wing of the Progressive Action Party has refused to rejoin any coalition with the Moderates, with the Zellatian Peoples' Party likewise refusing. The grounds for the former is that the Moderates aren't really offering anything new," Beatrice explained, "and as for the ZPP, the ZMP quite literally dissolved the regional parliaments against their wishes a few years back, hence why they separated from the TPP in the first place before its dissolution. It's starting to look like the Moderates have no ability to form a coalition this time around, especially with their ideological strain solidly on the rightward tilt given their coalition partnership."

"The Interventionist wing of the PAP has likewise refused to align itself with the Communist party, as has the Radical Democratic Party, on the left," Sir Ezerek continued, "Meaning that without UDP support, they wouldn't be able to create a coalition. Heck, even if the UDP agreed, with even 9 party switches in protest, the coalition would fall apart immediately. So it appears that the Communists, despite their alliance having more seats than the UDP, will be forced to coalition with them as the head, unless they want to risk another election or, worse, the UDP agreeing to align itself with the DCP out of principal of forming a government."

"How have the negotiations gone? Well, over the last few days, there's been reports of some offers back and forth, though the details have been scant other than giving the Communists an exceptional number of seats in the Cabinet to make up for the lack of Prime Ministership. That would disappoint some of the other parties, but would go with the territory," she said, sighing. "How's your winnings treating you?"

"Couldn't tell you," Sir Ezerek said, with disappointment in his voice, "The casino closed and is being investigated as we speak. I'll be lucky to get a million dollars out of them, much less a hundred million."

"Well, there's always next election."

"Whatever."

"Anyways, that's all we have for now. The Upper House is currently being tabulated on the basis of the alliances being allowed to give the constituent parties a piece of the pie, so to speak, so we don't have those results just yet as the last of the expatriate vote comes in. No seats should flip, but its always possible, I suppose," Beatrice said.

"Until next time..."


Leone City, Province of Leonitia
Leone Provincial Hospital - Central
Room 4560


The room was comfortable, Theodore von Leone thought, as he ruminated on the last few days. The Emperor had already called him to wish him well, but had left a little nugget of information along with the call - he was fine with some of his powers being stripped further from him if it would help him form a government. Gavron Shinordizha of the Radical Democratic Party had been pleased and had agreed to Coalition with them for now, to make sure they upheld the promise. Could even lead to their party actually being accurately named, he thought ruefully, wincing in pain as some of his new wounds erupted in pain that affected his old ones. Being dead wasn't in his plans any time soon, but his wounds would guarantee he wouldn't stand as UDP leader next go around.

A light flashed above his door as he received a phone call. Turning, he grabbed the phone from the nearby wall and nodded, "Yes?" Ah, as expected. "I suppose its about time she visited. Thank you, send her along. I doubt she's here to stab me, so no need to search her. We're both politicians, we'll stab each other in the front when we're both at our best," he said with a chuckle, putting down the phone and grabbing his jacket from the other wall's coat hanger. No need to look halfway indecent around a lady, much less a fellow party leader.

"Theodore?" Stevie Who asked, poking her head in a few minutes later, "Ah. Good to see you up and awake. I don't think I need another scare," she said, waiting for him to nod before taking a seat by the bed.

He took a moment to respond, looking at her with curiosity. "You weren't even born yet when the Mad Dolmant gassed the capital, were you?"

"Wasn't born yet, and my family hadn't even immigrated yet," she said plainly, hands crossed in her lap, "Though I was raised in one of the more effected districts. I played with my friends among some of the warehouses that didn't quite get as cleaned as the authorities thought. Wasn't every day we found some bones, but..."

"I understand," Theodore said, frowning, "I wish I had been able to convince Emperor Zellath to allow me more oversight over the clean-up, but he said it that it was a matter for the civil authorities. And they took their time..."

"Things are better now, though," she said, "and I think we'll be able to work together on a few things, too - parts of Zelatun still need our help. I wouldn't have been sent to Parliament without them."

"That you were," Theodore said, coughing a few times, dabbing his lips with his handkerchief. "You know what you represent, right?"

"Humor me, Theodore. What do I represent?" she said, eyes locked with his with a warm, if curious look.

"Peace. I don't think you, no, you know full well what you represent."

"That I do. But it does help to hear what other people think it is, if only to know how the establishment thinks of you."

"Establishment?," he asked with some amusement, "I suppose I am. The last hurrah of my generation, the old man in the race, and you're visiting me in the hospital because I'm too infirm to go home yet."

"After being shot."

"True."

"So? What do I represent?" she asked again, tilting her head as he felt something more than a simply expectation behind those words.

"The future. Not necessarily the one you want, I'll admit," Theodore said, "but the future of Zellatia, in one form or another. I think the reason you did as well as you did is that you were harkening for a better future more vividly than any of us. Destronikan can't think of anything but the past, I'm a relic of the past trying to make gradual improvements, and you, you are thinking of the future more strongly than anyone else did. I have to admire that."

Stevie smiled after a long, empty moment, "I think that might be a decent enough answer. I'd like to think I represent a better future, but we all know how tenuous the future can be. All observers thought that you were on the road to victory, or at least would eke out one over the Moderates. Polls nearly missed my party entirely until a few week ago," she said, leaning back in her chair.

"I wish I could say that it was my fault and that I could apologize, but we all know that pollsters can only factor in what they are familiar with - and most pollsters in Zellatia aren't exactly locals."

"That is true," she said, with some amusement.

A pause.

"Would you like to get down to more pressing matters, Theodore?"

"Of course, Stevie. A little back and forth never hurt anyone, but I believe that if I talk as much as I'd like, I may have to stay here an extra day."

"Right."

"I'm willing to offer a few ministries to you and your chosen candidates. Labor. Interior. Infrastructure. Justice. Veteran's Affairs. Social Welfare. Redevelopment. Health."

"Half?" she asked, "That's a surprise."

"Before you jump to that conclusion," he said with some mirth, "I am planning on adding a few and subtracting others. There are some holes caused by Hardek's hard head when it comes to Diplomacy. His statement on the tragic accident a few days ago are just proof of that."

"Still, that's awfully generous of you."

"Would you have accepted anything less?" Theodore asked.

She thought on that for a moment, clicking his tongue, "No. Probably not. Though, I wouldn't have accepted anything more than that, either, so I think you're as perceptive as I've heard."

"So. Who," he said, catching himself, "Miss Who, where do you see yourself over the next four years?"

"Probably Labor," she said quickly, "Though, it depends on who in my party is interested in what. The former leader of the Veteran's Party is getting Veteran's Affairs-"

"Obviously,"

"Obviously, whereas, well, I can think of a few Subministerial positions that can be filled by the Hatari Party and Thelakisto-Socialists."

"I suppose that's a given. I believe the other members of party leadership can speak to you on the specifics, Stevie, as I'm not quite in a state to do the Tiger Striping here on this, but I believe we can solidify everything by the end of the week."

"Good," she said, taking his hand, "I look forward to working with you Prime Minister. We do have all week to negotiate, but you seem to have a good head on your shoulders when it comes to ground to give. Good day to you and rest well," she said, shaking his hand and getting up to leave.

"Stevie?"

"Yes?" Stevie Who asked, turning around with the door open.

"Thank you for your time today. I'm sure we'll be talking more as we assume office, together."

A warm smile. "I should hope that we have much to talk about."

And then she was gone.

Slumping in his bed, he let out a wistful sigh, "Oh, she's definitely a look into the future. If our future leaders are anything like her, I think I might leave office with no regrets. Though..." he said, looking out his window, "If they have her political acumen, there's going to be a lot more close elections like this. The good kind of Dangerous, for once. Hopefully. Hopefully..." and with that, he got himself some shut-eye.

The end of Election Season was almost here and he needed to get a little sleep before Sunday.
