Kid Trying to Suaside
The Yxil Times
A kid was found trying to jump off from the tallest tower of the world - the YCASL. This kid rode the elevator to the highest floor he can get and tried to jump down. But before he tried he fell in coma because of less oxygen. He fell down unexpectedly from the 502nd floor and we had rescued him at the lowest floor with a big air-stuffed "bubble" and the "bubble" nearly broke. Thanks to the Yxilland Police force that the child was rescued immediately. By news reporter Daniel.

All Fatatatutti is in mourning today for the death of Corporal James "Jimmy" Smith, who was killed on a raid in an undisclosed foreign nation by the commando unit Romeo Foxtrot. Parliament has proclaimed a national day of remembrance for our valiant warriors.

Air traffic was at a standstill at Fat City International Airport last night as the distress call came in from the aircraft which was low on fuel and laden with wounded, "Romeo Foxtrot, Romeo Foxtrot, Romeo Foxtrot...."

According to Major John "Scottie" Wilson, the commander of Raiding Force (better known as Romeo Foxtrot), the mission was a success though there were more casualties than anticipated. Details of the operation are expected to be released later in the week.

"Jimmy was like a brother to all of us," said Private Michelle O'Grady from her hospital bed. "We will miss him but I know that he didn't die in vain. Thanks to him, those people are free." Private O'Grady was among several others wounded in the raid. None of their injuries are considered life-threatening.

General Castro-Stalina has cancelled her plans for the week to spend time with Corporal Smith's family and the other wounded. In a telephone interview she said, "It's a risk we all take. We plan as thoroughly as we can to keep everybody as safe as possible but we do have injuries and even deaths. A soldier who gives his or her life in training is just as important as one who dies in combat. We should remember that."

A memorial service for Corporal Smith is expected to draw tens of thousands.

Anzinzar-Carnalea Treaty Signed

Postby Anzinzar » Fri Jan 10, 2014 6:21 pm

QORIM ANUDAR, GREATER REPUBLIC OF ANZINZAR

After nine days of negotiations, the Greater Republic of Anzinzar and the Regency of Carnalea have agreed on a Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Friendship.

The terms of the treaty were hemmed out by diplomatic teams over the course of just more than a week, hosted by Anzinzar in the city of Kezia.

Significant terms of the treaty include judicial and immigration rights, as well as a free trade agreement (for full terms of the treaty, see here.)

The signatories to the treaty, on behalf of their respective nations, were Anzinzar Minister for Foreign Affairs Arik Okuda, and Carnalea Minister of International Affairs Mariella Peyton.

This is a significant step forward for the two nations, who have fought several low level conflicts over shipping rights and island claims in the past. Although they have had little conflict in recent years, this is the first real diplomatic contact the two parties have engaged in in 18 years.

The treaty will be valid for a period of 20 years, and it is hoped it will help to create a lasting friendship between the respective parties.

REVOLUTION SPREADS TO OCEANIA

Image
Thousands of soldiers and workers gathered in Xia Peng Square in Heping, the capital.


Today, General Secretary Zhao Yi, standing in front of thousands of soldiers and workers in Xia Peng Square, delivers a speech, after enacting the Red Pacific Act.

"Today comrades, I have enacted the Red Pacific Act. As part of this act, the nations of Fiji, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu, are all under the jurisdictions of the People's Republic of Zhouran.

Because of this, we are spreading the revolution to the people of those undeveloped nations. Also, thousands of soldiers will be stationed in those nations.

As of January 16, 2014, Fiji, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu will be part of the newly formed Oceania Autonomous Region. As a result, the people of those nations will have semi-autonomy. They may be part of Zhouran, but they will still have their own law and law enforcement.

May the revolution continue."

In the newly formed Oceania Autonomous Region, warships and soldiers arrive to bring the revolution to the oppressed people.

Moorburgh holds military drill as Freeport Island dispute widens
by Ron Burfott

Moorburgh Shock Troop from 1st Cape Roselyn Rifle

Moorburgh paratroopers recaptured an island from an enemy in a wargame as its Defense Minister vowed to defend a disputed Freeport Island territory. Atok’s ships sailed near the contested islets as St. Lenkerville reportedly expanded its air defense zone.

Old Plainton’s military on Sunday held a military drill dubbed “Island Outlook,” in which the country’s elite airborne troops simulated the retaking of a remote island from an enemy nation.

The plot for the annual drill, which took place at an exercise field east of Porthbridge, stayed the same for the second year in a row as the dispute over the group of tiny islets in the Tallfree Bay, claimed by Moorburgh, and Atok, showed no signs of resolution.

Ashburn United optimistic over move to new stadium
Image
Ashburn Stadium

The Ashburn United FC will move ahead with a $280 million project to add three training facilities on the exterior of new 22,000 seated Ashburn Stadium, their spokesmen announced today.

The roof of Ashburn Stadium's soccer stadium is to be equipped with SolarPoint Ltd solar modules. The system is made up of 2,900 solar modules and has a planned total output of 725 kWp. That will make it one of the biggest building-based photovoltaic projects in the Springmont. The Ashburn Stadium project will allow CO2 emissions to be reduced by up to 272 tons a year and will provide the electricity required by around 200 homes. That means the project will make a valuable contribution to Springmont’s plans to become carbon neutral by 2040.

NEW: Alexander Vaziri inaugurated as 38th president of
the United Republic of Emmeria

Inaugural speech focused on "small government
policies"
Oured, D.A., UNITED REPUBLIC (UP) — Over 900,000 people gathered around the United Republic Capitol on Monday January 20 to witness the inauguration of president-elect Alex Vaziri, who won the U.R. presidential elections last November.

In his speech, Vaziri, former governor of the state of Frentia, focused on the reduction of the federal government's domestic authority in favor of economic privatization and deregulation as well as the relegation of several powers to states, calling these measures a "return to our historic traditions". In terms of foreign policy, Vaziri expressed interest in establishing partnerships to boost UR economic, security, and political interests across the region and globe. While his economic and foreign policy are supported by a majority of his Federalist party, his social policies have been criticized by numerous conservatives nationally while gaining applause from liberal progressives.

EXCLUSIVE: Full coverage of Vaziri inauguration

A few highlights from the speech:

"Let us never forget we are the heirs of that revolution—the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God. Today, the torch passes to a new generation of Emmerians: tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage, and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this Republic has always been committed, and to which we remain committed today at home and around the world.

"From the day on which these rights become compromised, only then shall we date the ruin of our great country. The warm sunshine of influence would melt down the virtue which the violence of the storm rendered more firm and unyielding. In a state of tranquility, wealth, and luxury, our descendants would forget the arts of war and the noble activity and zeal which made their ancestors invincible. Every art of corruption would be employed to loosen the bond of union which renders our resistance formidable. When the spirit of liberty, which now animates our hearts and gives success to our arms, is extinct, our numbers will accelerate our ruin and render us victims to tyranny.

"And yet our perseverance in the face of insurmountable odds remains undaunted. This generation of Emmerians has endured crises that steeled our resolve and proved our resilience. Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty."

Opinion: Vaziri has a lot on his plate

Later in the speech:

"To our sister republics, we offer a special pledge: to convert our good words into good deeds, in a new alliance for progress, to assist free men and free governments in casting off the chains of poverty and repression. We cannot let this peaceful revolution of hope become the prey of hostile powers. Let all our neighbors and friends know that we shall join with them to oppose aggression or subversion anywhere on this continent, anywhere in this region, anywhere in the world."

WATCH: Vaziri inaugural address (FULL)

Vaziri administration inherits difficult agenda

Domestically, President Vaziri has a lot to address. From calls for gun control to an aging healthcare infrastructure to constantly rising debt, it is safe to say President Vaziri's schedule will be booked.

With Hayes' failure to fully implement a universal healthcare system in his first term (more or less a continuation of the Castilla administration), it will be interesting to note how the Castilla healthcare plan will transition into the streamlined state-centric Vaziricare program. President Vaziri indicated during his campaign last year that his vision would involve an increased role of the private sector and lower overall taxes.

President Hayes left an entire meal on Vaziri's plate for foreign policy. As tensions between Rodarion and Itailia escalate, security on the western continent has not been at such high risk in decades. The threat of conflicts lulls over the middle east and Seukutan as well, adding more complexity to Vaziri's job. In the extra-regional arena, traditional U.R. ally Eagleland has declared war on Titianicia in Sondria, stirring a powder keg in that region.

These developments will prove a major, early test for the Vaziri administration.

Both parties are the same. Vaziri and Hayes go to bed every night having gotten on their knees and prayed to corporate heads for money and funding. Vaziri's populist approach is merely a thin veil lying above a tight bond with Emmeria's richest.

The only difference is who sponsors them. The Heckler Brothers sponsor radical leftism and dumped tons of money on Hayes and Castilla. Reva O'Connor (CEO of Shale Oil for those who don't know) and her gang of gas giants let the bills flow into the radical right department. There's no good guy.

This is exactly the opposite of what we need. The 2013 elections were among the least free and most rigged elections in our nation's history. And now they've given birth to the very man who promised to reverse all the progress our nation has made.

OBESITY IN SYRRINAN: HEALTH HAZARD OR FASHION STATEMENT?
Image

Obesity figures in the Empire of Syrrinan have risen alarmingly: At least 62 percent of the Adult population is in the obesity range, mostly Females between the ages of 24 and 42, the female obesity rate being 86 Percent. “The highly-lassiez-faire policies of the parliament has led to any and all foods being available”, or so says the Head of Health Statistics, a member of one of the many statistics corporations that is employed to help the government in censuses. “The widely popular view of obesity is that it's far better than starvation such as in our southern and eastern neighbors.” However, he continues to say that “It drives up the heart attack rates in our country and though medical advances make the life-saving procedures easy, they are still rather expensive.” Fitness trainer Johann Heussen takes a different stance, calling obesity an "Unbearable Epidemic." He says that the country needs "Not only its own help, but the titanic obesity rates call for an international effort" to reduce Syrrinan's waistline.

However, Magazine editor Sabrina Truette says otherwise.

The plus-size editor of Imperial Fashion Monthly says that "Obesity shows one's size. Plus, who can argue with cuddling with someone of a few extra pounds?" She dismisses the health risks of obesity, arguing that "Modern medicine can address the problems easily, our doctors can simply 3D Print new organs, new pancreases for those afflicted by Diabetes, new blood systems for those who suffer from heart disease, and cure hypertension with a bit of therapy." She also states the importance of obesity to the empire's Fashion Retail industry, stating that "Never has the clothing industry prospered from the sale of so much cloth."

Violence in Lu Song Cun

In the dirty streets of Lu Song Cun, the capital of the Autonomous Region of Formoso, a massive fight between Philippine nationalists against Zhouranese nationalists had caused hundreds of deaths. The fight was started by a group of Filipino people asking for independence from Zhouran. Zhouranese nationalists began throwing rocks and bricks at the Philippine nationalists. Soldiers from the Formoso Police fired rubber bullets at both Philippine and Zhouranese nationalists, but to no avail. Later, as the fight continued, peacekeeping soldiers from the Zhouranese People's Army Formoso Garrison used an unknown sleeping gas (thought to be 3-methylfentanyl or another fentanyl variant) in an attempt to induce sleep to the crowd. Many of the crowds were successfully rendered unconscious.

Marcus Lee Tiongco, Chief Secretary of the Autonomous Region of Formoso , was appalled by the violence, stating "violence is what splits people from other people." Senior General Luo Tan, commander of the Zhouranese People's Army Formoso Garrison, described the actions of the Philippine and Zhouranese nationalists as "reckless, chaotic and horrible."

Mann's ProgCos Sweep Elections
"Completely unexpected," say top election analysts
Image
The 76th Aininian Parliament
FORESTIA - In the first election since Parliamentary ridings were redrawn, expanding the lower house from 300 to 451 seats, the Progressive Conservative Party led by Opposition Leader Stephen Mann managed to sweep the polls, carrying the election and forming Ainin's first rightist majority government since 1962, bringing an end to 14 years of Social Democratic (and later, due to a merger with the Liberal Party, Liberal/Social Democratic) rule. This election represents a dramatic shift to the right, with the previously-obscure far-right National Alliance electing 16 MPs, all of them in West Ainin, and the complete lockout of leftist parties from said province, an event that has not occurred since the 1842 General Election during the Jasper War.

The Progressive-Conservatives swept the traditionally rightist provinces of West Ainin and Bunida, and consolidated their position in the battleground ridings in Southern Jasper. Meanwhile, the Liberal/Social Democrats managed to hang on to their stronghold in Linack, however losing several districts to the ProgCons, and, surprisingly, Socialist Freedom. The L/SDP also lost dozens of previously safe ridings around the country, being reduced to its lowest seat count in the Commons since 1973. The Green Party kept its Forestia stronghold safe, albeit with a reduced majority, and managed to sweep around two dozen of the newly created constituencies, while breaking its way into the usually conservative province of McFaddle. The National Alliance managed to turn 14 ProgCon safe seats into NA ridings, by appealing to the social conservative vote, and Socialist Freedom elected 14 MPs in Jasper and Linack, which has surprised many analysts that expected it to win between 0 and 2 ridings. 6 independents were elected, most in Crystia and Linack, while the Libertarian Party's support collapsed, leaving it with 0 MPs. Libertarian leader Jenny Huang failed to retain her seat in Mount St. Francis, losing it to a rookie Liberal-Social Democratic backbencher.

The 76th Aininian Parliament is expected to be sworn in on February 16th, 2014 at 8am.

Victory assumed over Uzbekistan!
By reporter Markov Desinev

After many failed invasions of Uzbekistan and humiliating defeats, the nation of Uzbekistan has been annexed by the Phastropastan military. On February 14, 2031, Phastropastan soldiers wave the flag of the Republic over Tashkent. Tashkent has been renamed to Lirkokevgrad, honoring the general who lead Phastropastani troops to victory in the Battle of Astana during the Kazakh Worker's Revolt. Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan have long been protected by the Perabian Empire, the strongest state in the region. After the collapse of the empire, the newly-founded state of Iran withdrew defenses in Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, opening the two states to Phastropastani invasion. Turkmenistan, never recovering from the Perabian-Russian war (Turkmenistan, being a Perabian supporting state, was bombed and occupied by Russian soldiers), was annexed the glorious Republic's military. The Markinov regime then set it's eyes to Uzbekistan. The regime commands an invasion, but the glorious free military failed to capture Tashkent. Another invasion commenced, sparking the Great Caspian War which lasted for almost a decade. The war finally ended when the red yellow flag of equality was waved over Tashkent. Plans have been made to industrialize the new region by the regime.

Refurbishment of Edom Olympic Stadium begins

Refurbishment of Natur Stadion (Nature Stadium) for the upcoming Winter Olympics officially began in Edom. The city, which will host the international compositions in two years, has already finished with all the other Olympic venues, however the football stadium, which will be refurbished for the opening ceremony was delayed due to contracting/financial issues. The stadium, beside the Edom River, has been the home grounds of RS Edom, the local team, since 2000 when it was built as part of a millennium celebration. Refurbishments to Natur Stadion, dubbed the "world's greenest sports venue", will include updated air conditioning systems, and a glass roof so that lighting will only have to be used during nighttime. "This is a great opportunity for Edom and SJT as a whole to show the world what we've got.", said Markus Etrangia, the main architect for the site and large owner of Team SJT. "Edom, as a world benchmark eco-friendly city, will be hosting the cleanest and greenest Olympics yet." Artistic renderings of the finished stadium are below:

Valga, KULSANDIA ― The lazy sun slowly rose over the Kulsandian capital as its rays danced on the sleek glass panes of Valga's high-rises and progressively slid across the city's skyline. The artery road outside still maintains its busy atmosphere, commuters are still rushing to get to their workplaces in time, and the Number 12 bus still passes every half-hour in front of the Office, heading to the always-busy shopping districts. At a cursory glance, it seems like life as usual in the large city, home to 2.6 million citizens, with its tropical allure and lively mood, but the truth was, as it tends to be, much more complicated.

Walking about half a kilometre down the boulevard in front of the ABC News office towards the supermarket, I crossed dozens of armed policemen and soldiers, alert to defend the city from the ever-present threat of Triumvirate bombardment or, quite possibly, invasion. Over the last few days, over 20,000 people have left Valga in search for safe refuge against war and destruction, and the general mood in the city seems to become increasingly somber by the day.

The slow trickle of refugees that started at the beginning of the Kulsandian Crisis was quite small, and most of us never thought anything of it. Until yesterday, at least. I had slept in (most of the team now sleeps at the ABC office, we thought, with good reason, that the suburbs were too dangerous), and awoke late in the morning to hear a dreadful sound that I had kept telling myself I would never hear: a fighter jet. About a minute later, I had clothed myself and opened the curtains. Outside, I saw a pillar of smoke arising from the industrial sector and then heard a horrible sound coming from an area about 20 kilometres east of where I was. Talking to one of my contacts, a lowly civil servant in the Kulsandian government, I eventually learned that it had been an incendiary weapon that caused heavy damage in a residential neighbourhood.

What will come out of this war, I am unsure, but I do not believe the end result will be good for the Kulsandian people.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Giant Popular

Postby Royal Witch Realm » Fri May 02, 2014 10:37 am

Good morning NationStates, as the rumors have justified throughout all of Royal Witch Realm, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches have hit a new and old demand by popular vote. An achievement astounding enough to make the hardest of PBJ sandwich lovers wish for more over night.

We take you now live to Diana Spencer.
Diana can you tell us the situation at Daniels Farm Noise Farm, and how a subject of common tradition became so popular overnight?
Yes William, simply put, giant grown PBJ products are produced here by the very loving care of giants themselves. Giant scientists have one clear message to all PBJ lovers, "Natural, Natural, and Natural, just of giant specie." It's all very popular William to have a giant taste for such a common giant of everyday life, PBJ. Back to you William.
Well, there you have it NationStates, popular by giant proportions.

Miley World woke up in turmoil this morning as the city of Mileywood seceded from Miley World. Here is the declaration of independence of Mileywood:

Declaration of independence

We feel that we don't have enough freedom in The Queendom of Miley World. Smilers in Mileywood and all around the country are frequently being arrested and sent in rehabilitation centers just because they're smoking some weed, showing some skin and having too much fun. We sent a dozen of petitions, we held some demonstrations in the steets of Mileywood but the government of Miley World has done nothing about it. They still have their out of date anti smoking policies that they passed in 2011. And Her Majesty Queen Miley Ray Cyrus is too busy smoking weed that she doesn't care about how Miley World is ruled. We want more freedom and we solemnly declare:

1. That from this day forward the people of Mileywood are absolved of all allegience to Miley World, and that all political ties between that power and Mileywood have ceased as of this day.

2. That Mileywood shall take the form of a republican government and, as such, declares itself a republic.

3. That in Mileywood we can do what we want, we can say what we want, we can love who we want, we can kiss who we want, we can sing what we want.

4. That in Mileywood we like to party, dancing with Molly, doing whatever we want. This is our house, this is our rules.

5. That in Mileywood, everyone is free to smoke all the weed they want, twerk as much as they want to and party all night.

And for the support of this declaration, and the success of the cause that we support, we, confident of the protection of the All-Powerful and of the justice of our line of conduct, engage by these present, mutually and solemnly the ones towards the others, our lives, our fortunes, and our most sacred honor.

By order of the Provisional Government,

John Smith, President


We are still waiting for a response from prime minister Nicolas Cyrus and from Her Majesty Queen Miley Ray Cyrus. It's a shock in Miley World, Mileywood was our largest city and our economic and cultural capital.

Rumours continue to abound that Beatrix "Kiddo" Harper will soon declare her candidacy for President. In a recent interview she refused to either confirm or deny the rumours but her lack of denial is taken by many as a confirmation. When asked if she was more hopeful of winning because her only declared opponents are a duck and a fish, she replied,"I trust the people of Fatatatutti to make a wise decision."

A preliminary version of the ballot is as follows:
Alphonse - duck (Independent)
Fish - actor (Independent)
Harper, Beatrix "Kiddo" - retired teacher (Socialist)

Incumbent President Mickey Chang is not expected to run for re-election.

Today the Rouge Dawn government will release the new updated list of those wanted by Operation Castle. It will also release raid scripture along with the list. Countries have been denouncing Rouge Dawn's way of treating resistance after the Cornwall raid scripture was released. Floyd Pinkerton released this statement
The way we treat resistance is simple, beat them down into a pulp. Yes Cornwall was a bloody mess with two Rouge Guards injured, one of them nearly being killed. But we always aim for the best outcome for our Police Officers, and if that means killing the person, we will kill.

In response Russia released this statement on the claims of Police Brutality.
Rouge Dawn is being monitored, and we are asking them to stop this crack down. We have not seen something like this since Adolf Hitler and Joesph Stalin. The Cornwall Incident could have been resolved with a standard issued taser, but it was not used.

Operation Castle will still continue, it was confirmed by the Department of Law and Order.
Rouge Dawn is not based off of this persons beliefs
