      Cascadia and Alta California admitted as Commonwealths of the NGU
      Image
      The west-coast former Alornian provinces are receiving equal
      privileges as the rest of the NGU

      Following the end of the war with Alorn in January of 2034, most of mainland Alorn was annexed by the Nationalist Gold Union. Although the now-suspended constitution required annexed territories to receive commonwealth status within 1 year of annexation, the political turmoil of the Powell presidency never led to this happening with the newly annexed Alornian territories. However, General Arthur Hecker has finished the transformation from executive-mandate to commonwealth status for the new commonwealths of Cascadia and Alta California.

      With the Union legislative elections being held next month, the two new commonwealths will have full voting privileges within the Nationalist Gold Union and all permanent residents there will be granted citizenship. Many right-wingers have responded with negativity, claiming that granting millions of "former enemies" the right to vote will end with tragic consequences. Meanwhile, General Arthur Hecker has claimed that granting political rights to the occupied zones and lifting the executive mandate will calm separatist sentiments in the area and finally bring cultural unification.

      The October election is expected to be contentious, although many regulations have been put in place to protect the legislature from being taken by radicals. Though Hecker has re-installed the monarchy, a move considered very unpopular, it's clear that his goal to fix the instability of the nation is rolling along smoothly.

TAIKOU - MASTER
September 17, 2035


History is filled with tales of men and women that overcame insurmountable obstacles to become great champions. Now competitors from across the globe will get the chance to do the same. Yurikiya, Miltonia, Ubizytotska, McFreedomstan, Standevia, and the Nationalist Gold Union. They will take on the most physically and psychologically demanding obstacle course in the world, the ultimate battle of man versus beast. 108 will enter, but only one, will get the chance to prevail.

Round 2 saw 12 competitors enter, 2 from each country, but only 1 left with the title of TAIKOU MASTER. In Round 2, with no Ace's involved, competitors were at each others throats as it seemed no one's score or place, was set in stone. Promising starts end badly and bad starts end well.

Reichspräsident Announces Resignation: Nationalrat To Vote On His Replacement

Monday, September 24th 2035: It was Announced today, my means of the governments television alert system, that Reichspräsident Erdeburg would be resigning. Erdeburg has ruled for over a decade, and it is expected his term will be setting a precedent for later Reichspräsidents. The Nationalrat is set to vote tomorrow on who will replace Erdeburg. The decision will largely hinge on the Militär Politik-Bund (MPB), who control half the Nationalrat by rule of the July 20th constitution. It is expected that the RUO and NP will vote together. The MPB has swiftly moved to prop up Fritz Hersch, nominating him only an hour after Erdeburg's nomination was announced.

Minister Hersch


Fritz Hersch is the minster of state security and last year he was elevated to the honorary position of Vizepräsident (Vice President) by Erdeburg. Hersch is a veteran, having served a term as an intelligence officer combating dutch insurgents after the assassination of Bundeskanzlerin Petry. Hersch's strong military ties and his experience as head of Noxtrem's most secretive government ministry, make him very desirable. The Nochtremischer Arbeiters Partei (NAP) has also nominated a candidate: Jörg Hofmann. Jörg Hofmann serves as the head of Noxtrem's largest Industrial Union, IG Metall. Hofmann is the first candidate the NAP has ever nominated, and one of the first economic leftists try and take up office in Noxtrem's government. Historically speaking, under the July 20th Constitution, it has been difficult for leftists to assume any degree of prominence in government. Many in the nation still feel resentment towards leftist influences in government: liberal influences are often blamed for the death of Kanzlerin Petry. The legislative action baring 'far-left' political organizations is still in effect, and this will likely lead to legal challenges regarding Hofmann's nomination.

      Christian Right wins majority in Union Council, United Social Democrats win the Senate
      Image
      Top: composure of the new Union Council. Bottom: composure of the new Senate.
      Pink: United Social Democrats. Grey: Christian Right. Blue: Conservative Nationals. Yellow: Market Liberals.

      The scheduled elections have ended and now the two legislative bodies are split as the Christian Right controls the Union Council and the Union Social Democrats now control the Senate.

      Polls closed last night after millions of citizens of the Nationalist Gold Union gathered to vote for new Union Councillors and Senators. Earlier this year, General Arthur Hecker performed a coup d'état against the collapsing government of the deceased David Powell, taking control of the nation. Though many expected Hecker to implement himself as a dictator (for suspending the constitution and re-implementing the monarchy), the General cracked down on corruption and disorder and now held open elections for the dissolved Senate and Union Council, as well as many other positions and titles across the country.

      Out of the dozens of political parties that ran candidates for the election, only four of them actually took seats in the Union Council and Senate: the Christian Right, United Social Democrats, Conservative National Party, and Market Liberal Party. This is due to the 10% rule that was implemented by General Hecker's administration, which required any political party to get at least 10% of the popular vote in order to take any seats.

      The United Social Democrats won 255 seats in the Senate, 51% of the seats, forming a majority for the party. Meanwhile, the Christian Right won 14 seats in the Union Council, 56% of the seats. Pundits blame the disparity on the number of small parties running, claiming that because so many people on the right wing voted for small parties on the right, only three of them actually passed the 10% margin. Meanwhile, the right-wing candidates were mostly under the wing of the Christian Right, allowing right-winged dominance in the Union Council.

      As per the suspended constitution, the leader of the Union Council was the Vice President, who was appointed by the President, and the leader of the Senate was the Chancellor, who was the leader of the majority party/coalition/alliance. Now, it's unsure how the political structure will be organized under the new regime.

      The new legislators will take office by the end of the year.

EROS Becomes Automated
PISS HQ


Yesterday, Panjali Astronaut Aadhaya Bimala boarded EROS alone and installed two new features to the station: the first being a mechanical arm capable of being operated from Earth, and the second being Louis, an AI capable of maintaining and running all systems on board EROS.

This means that EROS is now a fully automated space station capable of conducting research without a manned team aboard it. This is a massive step for both PISS, Sol Initiative, and all of humanity combined. Louis, an AI, is now in full control of the largest man-made object outside of the atmosphere, with no man aboard.

A significant advantage Louis has over its human counterparts is the total elimination of the need for any logistical planning or resources. This means that EROS and its team can now be fully focused on research, instead of needing to maintain basic functions of the station.

[Press Release] Fritz Hersch Elected Reichspräsident
Auswärtiges Amt



12/14/2035

Reichspräsident Hersch
In accordance with personal directives from Reichspäsident Hersch this foreign office gladly announces that the Nationalrat has voted to elect Fritz Hersch as the new Reichspräsident of the Noxtremian Volksreich. Attached below is a personal letter written directly by the Reichspräsident for the nations of the world.
To the nations of the world and their respective leaders, I am overjoyed to be working directly with all of you. I have worked tirelessly to secure the security of the Noxtremian people, and I will continue that work as Reichspräsident. Unlike many world leaders I will be pragmatic, and I won't wait for the nations of the world to catch up to me. Noxtrem has reigned supreme in Europe, and that trend shall continue. Whether the leaders of the world will work with us, or against us, is in the hand of people. The Volksreich was established on the will of the people, and I am confident that same sentiment will allow Noxtrem to secure prosperity for both itself, and those who bravely stand with us.

The Nationalist Gold Union is reducing it's role in Europe, this trend should continue. It is the belief of High Command that domestic resistance in the Western Territories of the NGU would be a sufficient weapon to turn attention off of Europe. Additional attention off of Europe will enable a quiet [REDACTED] in the Rhein Region. The Reichspräsident has authorized that our operations division utilize a weekly budget of 280 million marks. That money would be best spent in funding weapons and training in the [REDACTED] region. I want boots on the ground as soon as possible. I expect weekly reports on the situation.

Imperial Media Release


Kaiserin Dead! Noxtremians are to blame!


December 16th, 2035

Last night, a highly organized communist crime group broke into the Imperial Palace, killing hundreds of armed guards and killing 3 out of 4 members of the immediate imperial family including the Kaiserin herself. The next in line for the throne is Nikolaus, second son of Augusta and Paul von Romenburg. Since Nikolaus is only 2 years old, the only capable government of Vanavoy is the republican National Syndicalists. Regardless, the Vanavoian Military is still sworn to protect the Imperial Family it is unlikely this will cause any sort of resolution to the internal crisis. After initial investigation evidence has clearly shown the Noxtremian rats have orchestrated the entire ordeal to try to undermine Vanaovian tradition and legitimacy. The Vanavoian response to the Noxtremian defamation of our people and culture is the following ultimatum.

This declaration shall be brought to the attention of the Noxtremaian Government by publication in the official organ of the army.

The Noxtremian Government will furthermore pledge itself:

1. to suppress every publication which shall incite to hatred and contempt of the Vanavoian Monarchy, and the general tendency of which shall be directed against the territorial integrity of the latter;

2. to proceed at once to the dissolution of the Stasi, to confiscate all of its means of propaganda, and in the same manner to proceed against the other unions and associations in Noxtrem which occupy themselves with propaganda against Vanavoy; the Noxtrem Government will take such measures as are necessary to make sure that the dissolved associations may not continue their activities under other names or in other forms;

3. to eliminate without delay from public instruction in Noxtrem, everything, whether connected with the teaching corps or with the methods of teaching, that serves or may serve to nourish the propaganda against Vanavoian;

4. to remove from the military and administrative service, in general, all officers and officials who have been guilty of carrying on the propaganda against Vanavoy, whose names the Imperial and Royal Government reserves the right to make known to the Noxtremian Government when communicating the material evidence now in its possession;

5. to agree to the cooperation in Noxtrem of the organs of the Imperial and Royal Government in the suppression of the subversive movement directed against the integrity of the Monarchy;

6. to institute a judicial inquiry against every participant in the conspiracy of the December Twentieth Attack who may be found in Noxtremain territory; the organs of the Imperial and Royal Government delegated for this purpose will take part in the proceedings held for this purpose;

7. to make explanations to the Imperial and Royal Government concerning the unjustifiable utterances of high Noxtremian functionaries in Noxtrem and abroad, who, without regard for their official position, have not hesitated to express themselves in a manner hostile toward Vanavoy since the assassination of the Twentieth of December

8. to inform the Imperial and Royal Government without delay of the execution of the measures comprised in the foregoing points.

The Imperial and Royal Government awaits the reply of the Royal Government by the twenty-fifth day of December, at 6 p.m., at the latest.

      Paul Philip IV's coronation ceremony takes place while government is sworn in
      Image
      Leader-Emperor Paul Philip IV

      In a symbolic move to showcase the new democratic monarchy, the Crown Prince Paul Philip was officially crowned Leader-Emperor Paul Philip IV while the newly elected Senators and Union Councillors were sworn into office in the neighboring room. The ceremony took place in the Empire State Building in Caspia, where both people of the public and leaders of the world attended to witness the coronation.

      Paul Philip's predecessor, Georg took the title "Emperor of Laurentia and Leader of the Union" but styled himself as just the "Emperor". However, in his coronation speech, Paul Philip stated he would take the title "Leader of the Nationalist Gold Union and Emperor of Laurentia," shortened to "Leader-Emperor."

      General Arthur Hecker, however, has spent the past few months organizing what would replace the offices of Vice President and Chancellor. After the coronation, the General gave a short speech explaining what he would call the "Government Presidency." The new joint head-of-government will be comprised of the President of the Union Council, the President of the Senate, and the President-General (an official appointed by the Leader-Emperor who serves to break ties and give advice on behalf of the monarch). The Presidents of the Union Council and Senate will both be elected by their respective bodies, while the currently-serving President-General will be Arthur Hecker for the time being.

      Before leaving the building, the Leader-Emperor was informed of the murder of his cousin, Kaiserin Augusta II of Vanavoy. He has yet to make an official announcement on the passing.

In Refutation Of Vanavoian Claims
Auswärtiges Amt



12/16/2035

Statement From the Reichspräsident
Attached below is the statement written by Reichspräsident Hersch in response to the heinous Vanavoian Ultimatum:
(German)
Das vanavoischer Ultimatum ist unerträglich. Der Ministerium für Staatssicherheit hat keine Kaiserin Augusta II ermordet. Der Ministerium werden keine Verantwortung haben. Ich kann nicht ein friedlich Lösung sehen, und Wörter wird nicht dieser Krise lösen können. Der Volksreichs Antwort ist 'nein'. Noxtrem's Heer wird ob wir mobilisieren müssen. Der Volksreichs mobilisieren gegen Vanavoy würde beispiellos und überwältigend sein.

(English)
The vanavoian ultimatum is absolutely intolerable. The ministry of state security did not assassinate Empress Augusta II. The ministry will take no responsibility for the assassination. I cannot see a peaceful solution, and words will not be able to solve this crisis. The Volksreich's answer is no. Noxtrem army will mobilize if we must. The Volksreich's mobilization against Vanavoy would be unprecedented and overwhelming.

Paul Philip IV's statement on the Vanavoian-Noxtremian crisis

The government of the Nationalist Gold Union has been closely paying attention to the developing situation between the Vanavoian Empire and Noxtrem. From the evidence that has been provided, the Nationalist Gold Union supports the claim that Noxtremian agents performed the assassination of the Kaiserin. Paul Philip IV, the Leader of the Nationalist Gold Union and Emperor of Laurentia as well as the cousin of the deceased Vanavoian Kaiserin, has prepared an official statement on the crisis.


The development in the two German nations in Europe is deeply concerning and has posed a threat to both the state and economic interests of the Nationalist Gold Union and the territorial integrity and peace of the European nations.
As a response, the Nationalist Gold Union will be expressing sympathy and support for the Vanavoian Empire, which has been a target of a state assassination by Noxtremian hostile actors. As the Leader-Emperor, I strongly condemn in the harshest terms what Noxtrem has done against the Vanavoians and I will meet with the elected government to devise the path going forward.

However, the current Vanavoian Emperor, following the passing of my dear cousin, is my first cousin once removed. The son of the deceased Kaiserin Augusta II and her husband Paul, Nikolaus, is a 2-year-old infant and in the current state of crisis in the Vanavoian Empire, he is not capable enough to lead the nation. As the one who is the de-jure second-in-line to the Vanavoian throne, I am pressing my claim on the Vanavoian Imperial throne and request that the Vanavoian legislature recognizes me as so.

Denial of Paul Philip's Claim


December 17th, 2035

The Vanaovian Monarchy denies the legitimacy of Paul Philip IV of the Nationalist Gold Union as the successor to the Vanavoian Imperial Throne for, among other reasons, the fact that he is not of the Catholic faith, which is a requirement which must be met in order to become the Sovereign of Vanavoy.

[Press Release]Political Intrigue and Paul Philip
Ministerium für Staatssicherheit



12/17/2035

Legalities of Vanavoian Ascension


In light of potential ascension of Paul Philip IV to the throne in Vanavoy, this ministry believes it pertinent to release key information regarding the character and background of Paul Philip. It is procedural for this ministry to keep tabs on the activities of world leaders (particularly nobility of rival nations). Through prolonged surveillance it has been observed that Paul Philip may not be as protestant as he proclaims to be. Captain [REDACTED] of his security detail was told never to discuss the then-prince's prolonged disappearances during the hours of Sunday-Mass in at the private church on his family's estate. It was also noted (by Noxtremian operatives) that the employment records for the church kept on his family's estate, we're not available for review (though according to NGU law, employment records that are not essential to nation security are to be open for public viewing). Whether or not this implies intervention by the government of the NGU has not been determined. Phone records between Paul Philip IV and local catholic officials in his area are being made available at the following link
https://pastebin.com/PPIVDROP


If our evidence is sufficient to prove the religious status of Paul Philip IV (and we believe it so), then the Vanavoian government has no legal right to deny Paul Philip from his ascending to power within the Vanavoian monarchy. This ministry hopes that information provided will be useful in solving the diplomatic dispute between the NGU and Vanavoy.

Press Release on Behalf of the Imperial Senate


Declaration of War Against the Noxtremian Volksreich


December 17th, 2035

For the sake of National Unity in such a pressing time, the Imperial Senate has agreed to allow Vanavoy to continue being a monarchy, however, as a compromise, the power of the Vanavoian Sovereign has been greatly reduced. The now reformed Sixth Empire of Vanavoy headed executively by Mari von Romenburg as regent, has officially declared war on the Noxtremian Volksreich. Our tank divisions are rolling toward the Rhein, ready to vanquish the Noxtremian rats and sent them back to hell.

Paul Philip IV's response to the accusations of Catholicism

Noxtremian spies have published illegally-obtained evidence that the Leader-Emperor is a practicing Roman Catholic. Although this information was obtained illegally and with malicious intent, it is a controversial revelation nonetheless and His Imperial Majesty has provided a response.


What the Noxtremian Stasi has done against the Nationalist Gold Union is criminal; tapping phones and sneaking photographs in another sovereign state is something that shall not be tolerated in the international community. Nonetheless, the accusations of my Catholicism are true nonetheless. I will be issuing a declaration against Noxtrem at the end of this statement.

The Nationalist Gold Union is a secular state. As the sovereign, I am supposed to encompass the values of the Union, and secularism is one of those values. For the past decade of my public service, I have been a friend of everyone in every religious community. Many laws in Georg's empire required a conversion to Laurentian Protestantism to be the sovereign of certain German states in the Empire of Laurentia. I reluctantly did so, but that doesn't change the fact I was raised Catholic. My father was a Catholic and my mother was not very religious.

Many see this "revelation" as controversial, but the truth is that a fifth of our country is Catholic. I am one of the millions in that faith. You probably have Catholic neighbors or coworkers. You probably have Catholic family members. And there is nothing criminal about that. I wish for nothing but to serve the people and be a vastly better monarch than my predecessor.

What Noxtrem did against our nation is disgusting. If they spied on me as a kid, they might be doing the same to yours. Because of this, I will be advising the government to ramp up all security forces as well as ban all travel to and from Noxtrem. Current visitors will have their trips cut short. We hope they can return once their government is responsible. Additionally, we will be placing sanctions on the Volksreich and encouraging other nations who are not OK with the criminal Stasi to do the same.

Thank you.

Imperial Department of Defense
Military Report



12/05/2035


Forces in the Arabian peninsula have begun their push against SMS forces who have already engaged Qatar's security forces.
Our forces were able to push through due to overwhelming force and skill, as well as combined arms tactics. Shelling and bombing the opposing forces for an extended amount of time before ordering our troops to advance.

The engagements are quick, but extremely vicious. Our forces are able to come out on top almost every time due to superior numbers and firepower, but that doesn't mean that the SMS soldiers are pushovers. In fact, they are probably the most well trained and armed opposition we have ever come into conflict with.

Our forces are making a steady advance, under the cover of artillery and aircraft. We should be able to drive SMS out of the Arabian Peninsula soon.
That is all commanders,

New Railway Plan Announced


On March the 13th the Council of Nomiconia announced the construction of a new railway, a line stretching from East Carpathia, forking to Walgreen's and Unified Capitalist Kingship's borders, and ending at Donbasin (the border of United Collective Celestia), and having a line going down to Odessina. The new railway will be built using better materials, allowing for faster maximum speed, and will also allow for faster travel to each end of Nomiconia, and better transportation for export by ship.

The construction of the railway is expected to begin in about half a year, once confirmed. The current Estimated Time of Finish is unknown but is expected to be from 2 to 3 years depending on conditions.The council has also agreed to provide the National any further information on this topic.


The Desire For Democracy

With new information from all over the world entering Nomiconia, many citizens are beginning to question the policies of Nomiconia. Nomiconia is assigned one leader, and never decided by the people, and although normal for Nomiconia, in many parts of the world this is called a dictatorship. Our newspaper conducted a survey a week ago, and the surprising results showed that 21% of the population chose that they would rather have a democratic government, a number higher than ever before.

Aachen Captured


December 24th, 2035
[TOP SECRET]

After a brief engagement between woefully unprepared Noxtremian border guards and the Vanavoian K.u.K. Army, Vanavoian artillery opened fire on Aachen and was quickly able to rout the Noxtremian paramilitary and border security who had garrisoned in the city. Vanavoian armor then surrounded the city and infantry moved in and purged the remaining resistance. Our Atlantic fleet has moved north to blockade Noxtrem's northern coast and we have an armored spearhead moving to capture Den Haag and Amsterdam. Multiple Noxtremian mines in Tirol have been commandeered and Infantry has begun to move into Bayern where, according to at least one report, the troops were welcomed as holy liberators freeing the oppressed Catholic minority. Other much less reliable rumors stated that Vanavoian soldiers in Baden-Württemburg suffered no casualties as Noxtremian bullets "bounced off as if they were made of rubber". This is likely nothing more than a fiction, but it'll likely improve morale so it's to our advantage that we use this in propaganda.

After a motion to intervene in Europe in the case of increased escalations was approved unilaterally by both houses of the legislature, the Nationalist Gold Union has prepared an intervention in the current Vanavoian-Noxtremian war. To protect the interests of the Nationalist Gold Union, both domestic and abroad, it was found imperative and necessary to intervene in this conflict before it became too deadly. The amount of ground covered by Vanavoian soldiers in the past week has been deeply concerning, and now that the Vanavoian Empire has taken control of many parts of the Netherlands and the Rhineland, the foreign economic interests of the Nationalist Gold Union are at severe risk.

Effective immediately, the standing forces of the Afrikaner Weermag (the elite army of the Afrikaner Free State) will cross the border into the Vanavoian African Viceroyalty, referred to as White Africa or the Congo, and will seize control of the colony. Additionally, a plan for the seizure of Noxtremian Nigeria will be brought underway.

It is to note that the Nationalist Gold Union will not be defending nor assisting either Vanavoy or Noxtrem in this conflict. We will solely be acting in favor of our own national interests. By removing these colonies, which are very close to our sovereign borders, from European control, we will keep this war far from our home.

Strike at the Nationalist Gold Union


December 26th, 2035

An aerial attack on the NGU's African Fleet dealt serious damage to the NGU's naval capabilities in the region. Along with sinking a significant proportion of the fleet, serious casualties were taken by the NGU. While only 129 Vanavoians were killed with an additional 3 soldiers taken as prisoners, 2,403 NGU soldiers and a handful of civilians were killed in the vicious attack. The Vanavoian South Atlantic fleet has been spotted off the coast of the Cape Peninsula and is attempting to establish Naval Supremacy in both the Northern and Southern Regions of the Atlantic Ocean primarily through the use of Submarines and Aircraft Carriers. The Attack on Die Baai was accompanied by a renewed offensive in Northern Rhodesia where the Afrikanisch Landwehr has begun to move Southbound.

Declaration of War

Following the attack on both our military and the civilians of Die Baai, the Nationalist Gold Union is formally declaring war on the Vanavoian Empire. This heinous attack on the nation was what the intervention was intended to prevent from happening, yet our people were attacked regardless.

The government has delegated supreme combat authority to General Willem op de Haar of the Afrikaner Weermag, whose armies will begin a full-scale invasion of the Vanavoian Congo.

Emir Lakhmid Announces New Restrictions
January 10th, 2036



Today in a historic speech, Emir Lakhmid announced a series of new policies which place restrictions upon any infidels within Lakhmida, along with certain restrictions upon immigrants.

"As our nation continues to grow and prosper in the modern day, we must acknowledge the unfortunate truth that there are large amounts of Lakhmidan citizens who do not believe in their government or their people's religion. This is not acceptable for the future of our nation, and these infidels must face proper consequences for their actions."

The new restrictions apply to all citizens and visitors to Lakhmida who do not follow Lakhmid Islam. New visitors will face screenings at airports and border checkpoints, and current citizens are all ordered to visit their nearest Mosque to be interviewed and assigned. All infidels will be required to wear a badge upon their person signifying their infidelity.

Emir Lakhmid has made it clear that these restrictions are merely the start of a great societal progression which will be led by the government within Lakhmida, and has reassured the citizens that these restrictions will not discriminate against any current Lakhmidan Muslims.

USSS KGB REPORT
FRIDAY 11TH JANUARY 2036

TOP SECRET - DO NOT DISPUTE


龙罢工
The disease uncovered in May last year that has since ravaged the Blockaded city of Beijing reducing its population by about 20%. The disease doctors working tirelessly on studying and working to eliminate have given it the name, Lóng Bàgōng (龙罢工) or Dragon Strike. It was given the name because of what happened to the patient just prior to death.

The patient would go into a violent fit, vomit for 2-3 hours and finally the veins in their forehead and chest begin to bulge and fill with black tar-like blood, The patient then goes into a coma and dies 6 hours later. We discovered that the disease was a virus that had infected Beijing's water system. It spreads to other victims through contact and blood making it extremely infectious. On hearing it's main mode of transportation into the city the reservoir was shut down and completely sealed from the outside world. The water systems were shut down so in order for them to survive we airdropped supplies into the district hubs via drone.

After many months working toward a cure for Lóng Bàgōng we have made a scientific breakthrough. Using the Buckminsterfullerene or Buckyballs, a hollowed out nano carbon fullerene ball that can transport the contained cure/vaccine through the human circulatory system to the location needed, In this case the heart.

These Buckyball vaccines and cures are being mass produced and distributed to all KGB agents and every settlement in the old Trumplanian colony regions. Once that is finished every citizen will be required to take the vaccine at their local clinic, hospital or doctors. The vaccinations will take place in one region at a time.

TOP SECRET
DO NOT DISTRIBUTE



January 17th, 2036.



Talks about a possible secession from the Miltonia have begun amongst the congress. It is unclear as to who exactly would be willing to approve of the move. A vote about it will be healed on February 8th, if it passes a public referendum will be held to settle it. We do not know if the federal government will allow the referendum but we’ll find out soon enough.
