OOC: I've decided to change the name that my nation will be known as. Instead of Itinerate Tree Dweller, which is my sign-in, the nation name will be The United Romans; I have registered this nation name and it will act as a non-active puppet. I will be making appropriate changes to my factbook and wiki pages as necessary. The full national name is The Illustrious Empire of the United Romans and the Commonwealth Territories.

Women in the House of Lords?

Debate in the House of Commons and the House of Appointees was dominated by calls for female members of the aristocracy to be seated in the House of Lords, which is currently the only male-only house of the Imperial Senate. Leading the call for gender equality was Henry Stewart, the leader of the Progressive-Centrist coalition, which is the main opposition in the House of Commons.

"Women can become citizens, the can serve in our armed forces, then have even been the regents of our nation in the past, but there has never been a single woman member of the House of Lords since its inception in 1647. We must allow women to join the male members of the aristocracy in the House of Lords." spoke Stewart.

The House of Lords was less than enthusiastic about the proposed change to its membership.

Emperor Regulus Serius Sirius has not provided an opinion one way or the other, except to note that he is open to the idea of women in the House of Lords and that he is willing to accept the wisdom of the House of Commons and House of Appointees, if enough support was provided to the proposal.

Fuel Efficiency Goal

The Ministry of Transportation released a press report this morning outlining an approved fuel efficiency goal of 25 kilometers per liter. The automobile sector has been gradually increasing the fuel efficiencies of the vehicles they produce over the last few decades and the imperial government has been encouraging the automobile sector to adopt even higher standards for the last few years. The new standard met moderate approval in the Imperial Senate and has been signed into law by HIRH Emperor Regulus Serius Sirius.

"We look forward to working with the automobile sector in our mutual goal of increasing the fuel efficiencies of their products. Our goal is to reach this fuel efficiency by the year 2015," announced Secretary Marshall Haverrman at a press conference regarding the proposed efficiency standard.

Anarchy? Schmanarchy! We Still Have a Government!

National leaders were confused earlier this week by the World Assemblies reclassification of the United Roman Empire as being in a state of anarchy. Anarchy, which is usually defined by the absence of a functional government, does not describe the United Roman Empire according to government officials.

"The World Assembly has always been a den of communist vipers; it's clear they are jealous of our high standard of living and complete success as a capitalist society. They despise the fact that we have an incredible economy all while boasting some of the best political and civil freedoms in our region," said Deputy Prime Minister Oppius Virtius Felix.

A Nation Mourns

Today the nation paid its final respects for Nathan William Irons, Chief Diplomat of the Imperial Throne, who passed away several months back while performing his duty to the nation and the crown. He was murdered by the cowardly diplomats from the former nation of Montiar.

The delay in the memorial service was due to the clean up efforts surrounding the affair as well as difficulties in transporting the remains back to the surviving members of his family. As a hero of the empire he was permitted a civilian funeral inside the city of Rome, an honor not often afforded even a citizen.

A representative from his surviving family released the following statement:

"Nathan was a proud and kind man who loved his God, his nation and his family. He was dedicated to his job right to the end and we are proud of him. His children are being cared for by our extended family. We thank the nation, we thank the royal family and we thank the world for their sympathy."

Government Addresses 'Pony' Menace

The Imperial Government instituted new health and law enforcement guidelines today regarding alleged 'ponies' within the bounds of the empire. All persons believing themselves to be a pony or other equine are to be isolated and treated for severe psychological problems, additionally all persons found to be wearing a equine outfit without a reasonable explanation or activity requiring the use of such an outfit will be held for questioning.

An official from the Ministry of Health provided the following statement, "We must remember, these people are ill, they require treatment, not humiliation. Please, if you come in contact with one of these individuals, contact your local law enforcement officials and your provincial health ministries."
