The End of Prosperity (IC - APSIA ONLY)

The War Economy


The constant spiral of war, civil war, coup, and insurgencies has forced the markets away from sustainable, low investment ventures and towards the more resource & manpower intensive military industries. Laborers become mercenaries. Accountants become quartermasters. Retail land plots get reassigned for airfields and training fields. Mineral prices spike, manufacturing and service sector positions remain unfilled. Infrastructure is neglected to bankroll new planes and ships. Taxes and deficits spike to meet imperialist ambitions.


The Lost Generation


Men aged 16-25 worldwide have been tossed aside after their tours of duty. Tens of millions are disabled. Tens of millions are traumatized. Almost all of them are jobless or stuck doing mercenary work. Global rates of violent crime, drug abuse, and anti-social activity are spiking as these men lash out against the nations that treated them like pawns. With a powerful sense of emptiness inside them, they drift around. Forming gangs and living off whatever scraps they can get.


The Underground Economy


As governments move to seize every last rare earth metal for arms manufacturing and spike credit rates to unattainable levels for the common man, the invisible hand has carved out a safe haven for them. An estimated $1,670,000,000,000 is produced by off the books workers around the world doing everything from scalping EBT and UBI waivers, all the way to human trafficking and assassinations. Untaxable, dangerous and expensive to crackdown on, and so loosely organized as to drive any intelligence agent mad, the underground economy can only grow in scale in the coming years.


The Stagnant Subjects


Over 380,000,000 people are subject to cruel, extractive, and unpredictable regimes. They receive minimal wages, if any at all. Their overlords care little for their lives and only offer occasional platitudes to keep the generals and upper class satiated. They don't want to work hard, as there is no reward. They don't want to adopt new technology, as the extra productivity does not enrich them. The masses work only just hard enough to avoid punishment. Just efficiently enough to avoid raising suspicion. The overlords are satisfied, and the potential mega-economies stay subdued. The natives will die before letting their masters see the true economic power of their people.


The Consequences


Every safeguard has been broken. The conditions for an economic collapse have been met. Through skill, suffering, and sacrifice nations will keep their ark afloat. Those who aren't willing to do what it takes will quickly meet the ultimate fate that awaits all nations. Cash out your bank accounts. Sell your stocks. Prepare yourselves accordingly.

      With the massive arms manufacturing surges in Korea, Songjiang, Latvichka, the USSS, and Malikay, it has become damn near impossible for civilian businesses to get their hands on key materials like aluminum, titanium, lithium, and steel. Suppliers and manufacturers across all the confederacy's electronics market have been running well below full capacity, not from a lack of demand, but because their suppliers for parts and materials are being starved by the defense industry. 1,900,000 workers are being affected by the shortages and have gone as far as the request that stockpiled arms and equipment be turned over to suppliers so they can melt them down for the crucial resources. The Board of Directors has denied their requests.

      Standevian Hotels Empty, Staff Surviving on UBI

      The grand Villahermosa hotel in Nordottom, built to house 1,400, currently has 2 rooms booked.



      War in Asia, war in South America, war narrowly avoided in North America, war in Europe, war in Africa, just the type of world you want to meet the lofty goal of 0 tourists per week. Standevia has been feeling the effects of the constant conflicts as its beautiful, conveniently placed hotels can barely book an entire floor. Many local hotel chains run the risk of racking up debt as the upkeep costs start to creep up on them. Some hostels and B&B's are managing to retain enough business to remain afloat, but by and large tourism service workers are stuck living on government aid. Let's hope that the situation reverses itself soon.

The Boston Globe: De Beers loses land reclamation case

      ​De Beers loses land reclamation case
      Image
      De Beers jewelry store/Grabby Images

      The De Beers Corporation has lost a groundbreaking lawsuit against the Supreme Court of the Nationalist Gold Union today over land reclamation.

      After the Rhodesian declaration of independence last year, the Rhodesian separatist government nationalized all diamond mines that were controlled by De Beers. After the NGU retook Rhodesia, all state assets of Rhodesia were redistributed and reallocated, including the many nationalized diamond mines. Shortly after, De Beers CEO Bruce Cleaver sued the Nationalist Gold Union, claiming that the government was illegally holding onto stolen property and refusing to reallocate it. The Supreme Court decided today that the government was not required to privatize the mines and return them to De Beers control, and instead, will continue to keep the mines nationalized.

      CEO Bruce Cleaver, who ran a massive PR campaign to privatize the mines again, was surprised by the outcome.

      "I thought we had a government that supported the free market," Cleaver told reporters after the verdict. "This is an unbelievable infringement of the private property rights of our citizens."

      After receiving the word on the verdict, the Union Ministry of Economics released a short statement on the future of the mines which seem to remain under national control.

      "The Nationalist Gold Union will retain control of these mines and redistribute them when the time is appropriate," said economics minister Erwin Brandon in a press statement today. "We cannot simply allow a magnate like De Beers to continue to monopolize the diamond industry, which is already bloated and inflated as-is."

      Anti-corruption activist Ian Brownsworth said he was against De Beers regaining control of their mines, but didn't support the court case.

      "It sets a bad precedent; the government can just seize and retain land, forever. De Beers had a cancerous monopoly and has a bad trail of human rights abuses, but corrupt government oligarchs aren't any better."

      Celkon Files for Bankruptcy - 4/1/2019
      Image
      Celkon Plant in Hyderabad

      Singar Guru announced today that his long-standing cellphone manufacturing company, Celkon, would be filing bankruptcy.

      "The manufacturing industry is no longer a profitable endeavor, no matter how much I would like to refute that," Singar said during a press conference this morning. Celkon will be laying off over nine thousand employees at its multiple manufacturing facilities. It's largest manufacturing plant in Hyderabad is rumored to have been sold to Kolhapur Arms, but no confirmation has been provided on this yet.

      We reached out to economist Kaushik Basu for possible comments on the matter. "It's becoming more and more common for manufacturing companies in Panjal to turn to the military production industry, and Celkon's bankruptcy is simply a byproduct of that," Basu said. "The world we live in grows harsher and harsher every day, and companies that refuse to adapt to that will go down just as Celkon has. Look at Bengkel. The war economy has become so profitable, that we have our first corporate state in Africa. It's just the world we now live in."

      Whether the bankruptcy of Celkon is an isolated incident or a sign of the times as Basu predicts is yet to be seen. The Mirror will keep you updated on all events regardless.

      The Manila Night Markets, $20BN/yr in Untaxed Sales

      San Cristobal Avenue market prepares for the night time rush



      As the Filipino economy begins to decline, the National Auditing Board has released a report showing that the night markets in Manila alone account for a significant portion of the GDP. These vendors don't pay any taxes and exclusively take cash, which makes prosecution near impossible. To further complicate the matter a small portion of the shops and stalls in the markets do have official land permits. So a simple crackdown by the police would step on the toes of at least a few dozen legitimate businesses and open up a legal can of worms. Police are asking legitimate vendors to cooperate with them in ratting out the freeloaders.

Erie Times-News: Government cuts sentences of non-violent...

      ​Government shortens sentences for non-violent offenders, POWs
      Image
      Holmesburg Prison, aerial photo

      An executive order signed by the Prime Minister today will shorten many prison sentences for non-violent offenders and internal prisoners of war.

      Among those who are receiving the cut are drug users, petty thieves, and other small-time criminals who have been locked up in the past few years. The NGU prison population consists of 40% non-violent offenders, which places a considerable tax burden on the prison system in the country.

      Prime Minister Alfred Herbert Page said in a press conference that he prioritized getting people rehabilitated and back in the workplace and their homes.

      "I think we all make mistakes," Page said. "It's unfair that some people have their lives ruined for such small mistakes that they made. We need to create an atmosphere and community in our nation that is based on forgiveness."

      Page came under flak from opponents and allies alike, who criticize this as opportunistic.

      Opposition leader Leonard Roberts said, "I don't believe Page cares too much about the well-being of many of these prisoners. He just wants a mobile workforce and less of a tax burden. What we really need is prison reform."

      Members of the "reactionary" wing of the Christian Right party, such as Donald van Mieter, said, "We cannot let these people roam the streets. They're in prison for a reason. Let's keep our focus on the useful members of society and, instead, let private prisons do the work for us."

      With the recent blows to tourism in the major coastal cities that employ over 4,500,000 workers, the Kesrade government has been petitioned by the people to expand social security and food stamp programs. Congress caved to the will of the people and initiated a series of quantitative easing measures to help short term funding for these expensive social programs. The Federal Reserve claimed that the long term benefit will outpace inflation by large margins.

      Kuznetsov Dynasty Lives On? New Age for Ubizytotska Around the Corner?


      Two months ago, a child was born. This child is important, why? Well, the child is the Son of Andrei Kuznetsov. The last surviving royal family member of the Kuznetsov dynasty. Now, Andreis is presumed to be dead in the streets of Borneo, as well as his father and former Emperor. Aleksandr Kuznetsov. The child was birthed from a governor's daughter and named him Dimitry Andrei Kuznetsov. The child is now almost 2 months old, being born in February on the 11th. Currently, the family is in protective custody of the Government.

Tech plants, laboratories, factories, and residential areas have finished construction all across Ubizytotska! This has been the finishing acts of Aleksandr Kuznetsov, due to his death in Borneo. The youth of Ubizytotska (Those 15 and up) have been put to work filling the new jobs part-time, while also going to new schools. College graduates are working fulltime in the new tech plants, as well as working on designing new technology for Ubizytotska, well done to the future of Ubizytotska!

      New construction sites like these are popping up all over Ubizytotska! It's good to see our people at work.


      Ubizytotska's first elections were held in the Fall, and Ivan Vankovich was elected as Prime Minister of Ubizytotska. He's promised people better lives and has signed off on replacing old run down slums with new residential sectors. Replacing factories of war with factories of prosperity. Only time will tell if New Ubizytotska will take shape, or be again pushed down by Imperialism.

      Image
      Prime Minister Alfred Herbert Page

      Prime Minister Alfred Herbert Page came under fire lately after stating "there is no such thing as a 'greater Germany'" at the Trans-Germanic Economic Forum 2019.

      During the economic forum, of which many government officials from primarily Germanic countries came to discuss mutual economic policy, a reporter asked the Prime Minister of the Nationalist Gold Union whether or not he could foresee the unification of the many Germanic states into one "Greater Germany" some day.

      "There is no such thing as a 'greater Germany'," Page told her, "and there never will be. All of our nations and states come from vastly different historical, cultural, linguistic, ethnic, and religious backgrounds."

      When the reporter asked Page to clarify, he said he thought what he said was obvious.

      "Less than half of the NGU speaks German in their household. Vanavoy is a deeply Catholic country; Prussiaholm is devoutly Protestant. Our dialects are different. Our countries all have their fair share of non-Germans. The idea of a 'greater Germany' is preposterous."

      Page later clarified that he didn't necessarily care if German countries in Europe united, just that the Nationalist Gold Union wouldn't be leading the effort or participating.

      His comments came as a shock to many in the German community as well as the reactionary faction of his own party.

      Klaus von Schlecter, the president of the German-Laurentian Relations Board, told the Times that Page's comments were disparaging.

      "I think that it's an admirable goal to have a decent and commonly united culture with other nations in the world. Whether or not Page is referring to a greater Germany as a nation-state or as an idea isn't clear. Either way, what he said comes as offensive to many German-Laurentians."

      Kurt Hoffman, a Senator from Keystone and "reactionary" member of the Christian Right, was annoyed by Page's comments.

      "His comments go against the destiny of our country and people. It's only necessary that we unite to fend of common enemies. The fact that Page is against this comes as a shock."

      New England Governor Osborn Brittain supported Page's remarks.

      "I don't really agree with most of Page's policy or the things [he says]," Brittain said, "but he is right. The Nationalist Gold Union has its own stock; its own people. We're not Germans. We're more than that."

Road and Rail Project Continues with more effort


Despite the war or possibly because of it the road and rail program has gained increased support and funds tripling it current work force and budget, thousands of construction vehicles have been purchased to make the project proccede faster in order to ensure fast resupply to the front lines from Songjiang towns and cities. Military Engineers are responsible for building the roads and rail near or on the front lines.

In other news kutuzov heavy industries has decided not to to stop production n its cruise liner despite lower availability of resources though the ship will be completed without its luxury accommodations to serve as a supply ship if the war has not ended before it is complete in 2 years.

      Tech stocks are dipping as scarcity in supply begins to be felt


      The continuing war in Burma-Bhutan-Bangladesh has finally killed off the fragile supply lines that managed to sustain the large retailers in the nation. Small alleyway shops and port city shops still survive to some degree, but anyone looking for foreign goods in the heartland will have to spend 400-500% over MSRP.

      In loosely related news, the Prussiaholm stock market took a nose dive after major mineral exporters like Ubizytotska, the Confederacy, and the NGU continued their large scale military build up and maintenance. With no one willing to scrap their resource intensive hardware, the civilian market around the world is quickly running out of raw material for cell phones, PCB's, and mobile devices.

Capri Mafia Leader Arrested




The Capri Crime Family, a gang in Warsh, has been an active part of the city for the last hundred years or so. The current leader, Gonzalo Capri has been in jail 13 times before for assault, robbery, and vandalism. However, detectives have finally found hard evidence indicating Gonzalo was related to a murder. Gonzalo was arrested earlier this week and was found guilty, with a life sentence in prison. An insider in the Capri Mafia says that the Capri family were big on the black market and that lots of black market activity occurred because of the Capri Family. 78-year-old Gonzalo owns 4 different shipping companies, so this is likely where his black market activity takes place.

      Image
      King Constantine I

      King Constantine I of Asia Minor passed away in his sleep overnight. There was reportedly no foul play.

      The King, who reigned from 11 December 2012 after the collapse of the Jerusalemite central government, is a relative of the current Leader of the Union, Paul Philip IV. The NGU monarch paid him a visit a few months ago during his trip to the middle east.

      The untimely death of the heirless King comes at a time where tensions in the region are at an all time high, as the sitting government in Constantinople seeks a union with Greece. Asia Minor claims all of Thrace and Constantinople, and sees the union as an affront to their national security.

      It has not been made clear who will serve in the King's place after his death, as he has no children. It is likely that a military junta will serve as a regent until an appropriate heir takes the throne.

"Rainbow Frog" has gone extinct

The rare "rainbow frog," a frog originating from Western Worris, has unfortunately gone extinct. There were very little of them left last year. A zoo that was holding the last rainbow frog known to be alive has unfortunately reported that the frog has gone extinct, and there is no possible way to have the beautiful frog in our world again through natural ways. The zoo has gone out of its way to not replicate or create a new frog that looks similar to the rainbow frog.

      Power Is On the Way!


      The BN-350 nuclear reactor is going to be recommissioned! Government workers have begun work around the old reactor located in Aktau.
      Although the building has been stripped and removed of radioactive materials, the building itself is being stripped and renovated into a new and safer nuclear power plant.

      This is the old facility as it is now.

      Renovation and construction should be completed within 10 months. Officials estimate that the facility will be operable within a year!

Latvichkan Public Dispatch

The End of a Glorious Era


Tragedy has struck Latvichka, as the end of the family line of Khator Khan has arrived. The war with Malikay took its toll on everyone. During this war, a squadron of Bombers targeted the foreward encampment of our forces. Though Anti-Air destroyed most of the craft, a single bomber made it through, and an airstrikedecimated the base. The Khan, consulting his generals, his Queen, and with his son on his lap (as was reported by one of the few survivors of the attack, were struck by one such bomb. Tengri be praised they were all killed outright, and did not suffer. Immediately the Latvichkan forces retreated. A ceasfire with Mailkay is said to be written after the period of mourning, and then one shudders to think of what shall occur in the transfer of power. Long has it been since the formal method was enacted, and it is a wonder if all the tribes will uphold it. A Civil War seems imminent, especially with the uprising of the Akaan Tribe, who push for modernization. They have been agressive in their attempt to modernize Latvichka, as well as taking the charge in the aftermath of the Khan's death. The leader of the Akaan, Burke Atil, offered public outcry to the neighboring regions, even in these economic hard times. He states: Khator Khan was a beloved leader, but look at his death! What else caused it but the refusal of embracing the modern world. I ask the nations of Asia, and the nations of the World. Help the Latvichkan people. Support the Akaan and we shall turn our back finally on the primitive caveman existence of Latvichka once and for all. We shall see Latvichka become a nation of the modern times! I only ask that you lend us aid, as we cannot do it alone." The outcome of his public outcry is unknown, but some of the Latvichkan people have rallied to him, but there are certainly those who dissagree. My Tengri watch over all of us and guide us to the right path.

New Government
A new post-war government has been put in power within Prisalia. It is led by Panjal, with less power going to the Prime Minister and more to the Parliament. The King says "This is a step in the right direction for a Prisalian state. We fully endorse this new government. For now, we're still on vacation in the NGU. This spa is amazing." What a man. Elections have been postponed in light of the instability.
