"No clue why Santo Domingos has a President, but I suppose assassination isn't... odd. Sure, it's a lot rarer now compared to a few centuries ago -which would suggest that it would continue to dwindle in regularity as time went by but it's nothing so out of ordinary; one runs the risk of angering the wrong crowd when they're the head of a state. Any clues on who's responsible?"

Perikuresu has somehow gained one more colony abroad, being the former nation of Brasillistan, which stemmed from sanctions from Perikuresu crippling the nation in response to the nation kidnapping our citizens to work in terrible conditions in their diamond mines

There are proposals to make laws making Compulsory Organ Harvesting legal in Perikuresu again, which allows the state to harvest the organs of the deceased.

"It's a little primitive, considering cybernetics can replace nearly all organs. I'm guessing you don't have that, though. Compulsory might be a bit much, I'd probably look at ways to incentivize people to voluntarily agree. But if this is what you need to do to have working healthcare, I do ultimately support it; healthcare is a right."

Major road blocked by child challenging all passersby to pokemon battles and defeating them. Police think "it's probably some kind of protest" and state that "while it is very disruptive, it technically isn't against any laws that are on the books."

Plans on a construction of an amusement park themed after a Frisian city has started, apparently it is planned to be in Southern New Friesland-Arohanui

“Amusement parks are utterly useless and a complete waste of productivity. All those materials allocated to the construction of such filth could be used to build factories that actually contribute to national output, rather than building a park that creates unproductive joyful children *shudders*. But alas, I cannot do anything about the degeneration of such societies.”
-Random factory overseer in Labor Conglomerate-887(Norilsk industrial complex)

European Theatre:
  • Mechanized National Soviet infantry division swiftly pushes into the city of Nancy, cutting off entire north french enemy frontline
  • Military offensive to liberate Tirana from the west repelled by enemy forces, the soldiers who have retreated are to be executed for treason
Asian Theatre:
  • Defense of Vladvistok successful - 60,000 asian soldiers cut off at Artyom by reinforcements
  • North Manchuria offensive showing significant progress, 40,000 enemy troops killed and another 75,000 captured and shipped to uranium mines

"Executing retreating soldiers? That's complete lunacy -that's simply not how war works. Sometimes you have to fall back to make a better stand, sometimes you need to defend in depth, sometimes you simply can't hold the line, any general who's even spent a day on the field knows this. Why, with that logic you might as well not prosecute war at all."
