      ECONOMY IN BOOM AS SMALL AND LARGE BUSINESSES FLOURISH
      Image


      The nations economy is the strongest it has been in 3 centuries, with a below 2% unemployment rate, and a now large and diversified job market.

      The repeal of the nations longstanding anti tech and anti outsider ideals seems to have been the strongest propellant for this surge of success, with 50% of the market belonging to companies founded or run by those originally not from Songjiang.

      The Songjiang housing market has also boomed with a focus on wealthy buyers inside and outside Songjiang with Songjiangs many Mason guilds building palaces fit for a prince with the intent to sell to those with the wealth and desire to own these palatial homes.

      The ship building industry is also booming with a cruise liner about to be finished and 5 light carriers in production 2 intended for export.

      Some Traditionalist claim this change is happening to fast or is against the ancient traditions but they are the minority"

      Songjiangs traditions seem to have given it a leg up in the world market its culture of obsession with perfection chief among those. Songjiang has gained a reputation for creating reliable products at a fairly low price even if those products can sometimes take a bit longer to complete. The Songjiang modeling, and tourisum industry is also quickly growing do to the nations extremely high percentage of attractive people, though its cultural tendency to distrust those who are imperfect (unattractive) has ruffled a few feathers.

SONGJIANG EXPLAINED A NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC EXPOSURE

Image

05/27/2021
Traditionally most people of Songjiang normally wore elaborate clothing identifying their province of origin and profession. The lack of these ornate clothes is looked down upon in Songjiang society unless ones profession demands otherwise even then color choices and ornamentation in the tradition are common; the Songjiang term "Chuān (plain)" refers to one who is beguiling or not to be trusted. It is also a slang term for politicians and corporate executives who often do not wear traditional clothing.

Attractiveness or physical perfection is very important in Songjiang culture, with unattractive and overweight individuals often being shunned and ignored or in some cases outright hated. unattractive persons rarely find wives and society often shames them into not attempting to. It should be noted that ugliness and imperfection acquired in battle or as part of an injury douse not seem to carry this stigma.

The people of Songjiang are noted for their strong sense of public service. It is rare to find one who puts his needs ahead of the group. Every citizen from age 15 to 30 serves the state in some capacity, as anything from a soldier to an administrator, from a construction engineer to a sanitation worker. Turians have a strong inclination toward public service and self-sacrifice, so they tend to be poor entrepreneurs. To compensate, they accept non Songjiang natives to be in charge of marketing and sales in there businesses. The recent changes to the nation and influx of non Songjiang populations has dramatically boosted there economy as foreign entrepreneurs flood the market. The Songjiang natives don't seem to mind this since it is normal from there point of view.

Songjiang society is highly regimented and very organized, and the nation is known for its strict discipline and work ethic. Songjiangians are willing to do what needs to be done, and they nearly always follow through. They are not easily spurred to violence, but when conflict is inevitable, they only understand a concept of "total war." They do not believe in skirmishes or small-scale battles; they use numbers to defeat an adversary so completely that they remove any threat of having to fight the same opponent more than once. They do not exterminate their enemy, but so completely devastate their military that the enemy has no choice but to become a subject of Songjiang and its people.

The Songjiang government is the center of their society. It is not just a governing body; it is an all-encompassing public works organization. The military are also the civic police. Military fire brigades serve the civilian population as well as military facilities. The corps of engineers builds and maintains airports, schools, water purification plants, and power stations. The parliament ensures that all provinces get needed resources.

Since their culture is based on the structure of a military like hierarchy, changes and advances accepted by the leadership are quickly adopted by the rest of society with minimal resistance.

While Songjiangians are individuals with personal desires, their instinct is to equate the self with the group, and to set aside all personal desires for the good of all. Songjiangians are taught to have a strong sense of personal accountability, the 'Songjiang honor' that other nations find so remarkable. Songjiangians are taught to own every decision they make, good or ill. The worst sin they can make in the eyes of their people is to lie about their own actions. Songjiangians who murder will try to get away with it, but if directly questioned, most will confess the crime.

The people of Songjiang believe that groups and areas have "spirits" that transcend the individual. For example, a military unit would be considered to have a literal spirit that embodies the honor and courage it has displayed. A city's spirit reflects the accomplishments and industry of its residents. An ancient tree's spirit reflects the beauty and tranquility of the area it grows within.

These spirits are neither good nor evil, nor are they appealed to for intercession. Songjiangians in contrast to there ancestors do not believe spirits can affect the world, but spirits can inspire the living. Prayers and rituals allow an individual to converse with a spirit for guidance or inspiration. For example, a Songjiangian who finds his loyalty tested may appeal to the spirit of his unit, hoping to reconnect with the pride and honor of the group. A Songjiangian who wishes to create a work of art may attempt to connect with the spirit of a beautiful location.

Songjiangians enjoy absolute freedom of religion and can practice whatever appeals to them so long as it does not impede anyone's ability to perform their duties. There are many practitioners of the Taoist, and Zen Buddhism philosophy. Since opening dialog with other nations, some Songjaingians have embraced Judaism and Christianity, Islam has traditionally been present in Songjiang society for centuries but has never caught on beyond a minority of the population.

The Songjiang government, known as the Songjiang Parliament, is a elective meritocracy of the business and religious leaders of Songjiang. While it has great potential for misuse, this is tempered by the civic duty and personal responsibility Songjiangians learn during their childhood, and for those not raised this way a swift trial and punishment for abusing the system.

Songjiangians have 27 citizenship tiers, beginning with civilians (non natives and children). The initial period of government service is the second tier. Formal citizenship is conferred at the third tier, after civic or military training. For non natives, citizenship is granted after the individual musters out of civic or military duties. Higher-ranked citizens are expected to lead and protect subordinates. Lower-ranking citizens are expected to obey and support superiors. Promotion to another tier of citizenship is based on the personal assessment of one's superiors and co-rankers. At the top are the members of Parliament, who each lead or rule a Provence, major business, religion, or one of the nations military branches. above them was the emperor or empress a role that has been replaced with that of the prime minister though with more limited powers than the monarchy had. The parliament votes on matters of national importance. They otherwise maintain a "hands-off" policy, trusting the citizens on each level below them to do their jobs competently.

Throughout their lives, Songjiangians ascend to the higher tiers and are occasionally "demoted" to lower ones. The stigma associated with demotion lies not on the individual, but on those who promoted them when they weren't ready for additional responsibility. This curbs the tendency to promote individuals into positions beyond their capabilities. Settling into a role and rank is not considered stagnation. Songjiangians value knowing one's own limitations more than being ambitious.

Songjiangians enjoy broad freedoms. So long as one completes their duties, and does not prevent others from completing theirs, few things are forbidden. For example, there are no laws against non-harmful recreational drug use, but if someone is unable to complete their duties due to drug use, their superiors step in. Judicial proceedings are 'interventions.' Peers express their concern, and try to convince the offender to change. If rehabilitation fails, Songjiangians have no qualms about sentencing dangerous individuals to life at hard labor for the state.

The Songjiang Republics anthem is called "Die for the Cause."

Although they lack the technology of nations like the NGU, and Mcfreedomstan, and the adaptability of many other nations, the Songjiang military has formidable discipline. Officers and NCOs are "lifers" with years of field experience. Enlisted personnel are thoroughly trained and stay calm under fire. Songjiang units don't break. Even if their entire line collapses, they fall back in order, setting ambushes as they go. A popular saying holds: "You will only see a Songjiangians back once he's dead."

most soldiers are recruited when they are 16 and normally Soldiers receive a year of training before being assigned to a field unit; officers train for even longer. Most serve until the age of 30, at which they become part of the Reserves. Even if they suffer injuries preventing front-line service, most do support work behind the lines.

Command and control is decentralized and flexible. Individual squads can call for artillery and air support. They have quickly adapted to make extensive use of combat drones for light duties, and practice combined arms: infantry operates with armor, supported by overhead gunships. Strategically, they are methodical and patient, and dislike risky operations.

Tradition is important. Each legion has a full-time staff of historians who chronicle its battle honors in detail. The oldest have records dating back to the Chinese Empire. If a legion is destroyed in battle, it is reconstituted rather than being replaced.

The Songjiang recruits auxiliary units from conquered or absorbed minor ethnicity, like the Russians. Auxiliaries are generally light infantry or armored cavalry units that screen and support the main battle formations. At the conclusion of their service in the Auxiliaries, recruits are granted Songjaing citizenship.

Songjiang wars are often marked by citizen resistance. Most Songjiang families keep small arms in their homes and take basic training courses that include instruction on how to operate them. To suppress citizen militias, the Songjiang Empire makes use of "execution squads" known as Sǐwáng duì. First, "safe camps" are established in cities to incentivize surrender. Next, Sǐwáng duì soldiers are deployed door-to-door; anyone who refuses to be transported to a safe camp or demonstrates hostile intent will be shot. Sǐwáng duì burial units then retrieve and cremate the bodies. The Republic has its own version of the Sǐwáng duì that is controlled by the intelligence branch of the military. This approach is necessary because without the safe camps, no Songjiangian would ever surrender, and without the Sǐwáng duì, it would take years for a population to be pacified.

Inter-Party Memo from Leader Albin Eichel



05/28/2021

Plans for the future

Greetings fellow Party Members,

This is a classified document that shouldn't be shared with anyone below the required clearance level. The purpose of this document is to outline our plans should we gain a majority in the Bundestag and I become Chancellor. These are territorial as well as industrial and social ambitions too.

Firstly, we must recover our economy. The liberals have failed to fix our economy after the war, and only we can do it. If we stop wasting money on things like welfare and the like we can refund it back to fixing our economy.

Using the fixed economy, we must double down on military build up to get revenge against the Noxtremians and Vanavoians. They brought our country to the brink of destruction and they should pay.

Diplomatically, we should move closer to the ECP. Imports and exports to ECP nations are good because of free trade.

That's all for now party members. See you at the next meeting.

Regards,
Albin Eichel, Leader of the MIP

Current Events



    The UCK government is now pushing the green quota. New loans are being created to allow the transition of companies from greenhouse giants to eco-friendly businesses. Many government-funded PSA's have been released discouraging minor crime such as stealing and illegal distribution of drugs. Njorden Industries has downsized its operations, having us question, why? More small businesses have now sprouted up to fill in the space that it has left. The UCK national soccer team, known as the UCK Egrets, is happy with fourth place in the first Europa League, yet it they strive for more. They have been making rounds to UCK schools to teach about major league soccer. The mad max arena has stopped importing contestants for the time being. There has been word that it will be converted for special events only, yet those speculations have not yet been confirmed. An Islamic festival is being planned for early 2022 to celebrate its impact on the entirety of UCK. Crimea is starting to become a tourist destination. A few resorts have been constructed and the beautiful wonders of Crimea have UCK citizens always coming back for more. Lastly, the UCK 2022 elections are coming up. When questioned about it, Erone Sark replied that he is not concerned about losing his position in office.

[TOP SECRET]Fall Gelb[TOP SECRET]

[TOP SECRET]To Operational Section 6[TOP SECRET]:
Our previous operation with the Deutscher-Bahn was successful; however, problems still remain internally. The press regarding worker-moral is true (our railway workers are happy), but managers are growing restless. I've determined 4 'at-risk' white-collar managers and I'm tasking this taskgroup with securing their replacement - doing it after their weekly meeting with Industrieausschuss officials would be ideal. Our contacts within the DB have already organized replacements. The railway is in its last few months of construction and the government is banking on this going well. Operational Section 8 will assume your duties with militarization while you are working on this. I want this done in no more than one month.

Terrorist commanders caught in Kazan
After receiving information from a undisclosed but reliable source, the Sietskian Police attacked a suspected terrorist base. After a three hour gunfight, the Police managed to capture two of the three commanders, the third one dying from a gunshot. Five other terrorists were caught, and two others were killed.
Such operations highlight the efficiency of the Sietskian Police Force at keeping the citizens safe.

The mayors of Vedrupol
Elections are being held for the first time in Vedrupol. Although the list of candidates was chosen by the Government, it is a signifiant improvement given the socialist nature of our country.
Among the candidates is also Vsevolod Karppinen, one of Sietsk's most famous physicists.

Official Release from the Bundestag



08/15/2021

Bundestag and State Assembly results

After months of campainging, the 2021 Bundestag elections have been finished. Originally, no party achieved an absolute majority, with the SLP taking home 33% of the vote, the the highest amount of any party. However, with no party achieving an absolute majority, the Prussiaholm First Party (PFP) and the German National Party of Prussiaholm (GNPP) formed the National Conservative Front (NCF). This brings the electorate votes as follows:

NCF (50.48%): 252
SLP (33.55%): 168
MIP (9.58%): 48
LWC (6.39%): 32

With the NCF winning an absolute majority, this makes Mia von Lausen the new Chancellor of Prussiaholm. Klaus Schwarz will become President.

Current Chancellor Ludwig Schmidt will remain head of the SLP. Government changes will be released later this month.

      Dragon Energy opens 50th store

      Baltimore mayor Jeanne Horowitz cuts the ribbon

      ​Dragon Energy Hui Restaurant Enterprises, LLC, the biggest Hui Chinese restaurant franchise in the Nationalist Gold Union, has opened its fiftieth location today in Baltimore after a grand ceremony attended by the city government.

      Dragon Energy celebrated the opening of the fiftieth store location with a lofty ceremony, where Baltimore city mayor Jeanne Horowitz cut the ribbon to mark the opening of the new east coast location. Lines of customers wrapped around three entire blocks.

      The corporation was created by Ma Yufan, a Hui migrant from McFreedomstan, in 2014. The first location was opened in San Francisco and expanded swiftly along the west coast, creating a fast casual Muslim Chinese cuisine boom in the region. Dragon Energy opened its first east coast location in Caspia last year.

      Despite the wide acclaim, local Christian and Alornian community centers staged protests near the restaurant amid the events that have happened in Utah.

      Work begins on Zanziikin branch of Black Sea Railway
      Image
      Baku oil will be shipped to Europe by the BSR

      Crews near Rostov on Don have broken ground, nearly a year after crews in the United Capitalist Kingdoms did so across the Black Sea, on the northernmost Zanziikin spur of the regional Black Sea Railway project.

      Left-leaning elements in Tbilisi had pressured for months that the Queen and the government ought to authorize a controversial spending package to link Zanziik's rail system to those of the broader region. Queen Tamar's reluctance, ever a hallmark of the conservative royal family, was worn down and gave way when several prominent businessmen, namely Baku oilmen, threw their support behind the plan. These oilmen stand to gain immensely by greater ease of access to European markets, and primarily delayed their support due to concerns over worker backlash at government expenditure of public tax funds on a railway that seems so likely to benefit Zanziik's wealthiest. That backlash has not materialized, and the support of the left has been assured since the railway's construction seems sure to employ many of Zanziik's poorest.

      The BSR project has been underway for some time and has achieved varying success in the several nations undertaking to link their rail networks. The UCK has most notably had success, and the government is said to be quite impressed by that nation's progress.

      Plans for the BSR in Zanziik will see new rail laid from Rostov on Don eastward across central Zanziik, in the foothills of the Caucasus mountains. On the shore of the Caspian, the rail will then steer southward to Baku. This will link it to the majority of Zanziik's extant rail system, which primarily connects central Zanziik to the east.

"UCK Goes On A Spending Spree"
Image
08/25/2021

The UCK government has announced it will be spending six billion dollars on various improvements.

The largest outcry has been to improve infrastructure in multiple places. (Mainly Crimea). There are roads un-checked, buildings half built, and structures ruined. The public has demanded that things be fixed. Erone Sark has not yet responded to these demands and people question his position in power.

Heath care is currently on the table. Ideas have been spreading for free national health care. Erone has responded to this demand though. He stated that he indeed wants to integrate a free healthcare, but he also stated that our economy is not yet prepared for that much spending. He hopes in to improve our economy before introducing this new healthcare plan. This has raised a small drop of hope for these activists.

The UCK navy was seen considerable growth in the past year and it has upset a number of people. Erone hasn't promised any halts in growth, but he has also not announced any near future growth.

Lastly, it is being incentivized for more workers to head to the construction of the black sea railway. Visas are being handed out to any potential immigrants who wish to work on the black sea railway. Construction has been going well, and no problems have yet been run into. We hope that it stays this way and soon UCK will be connected to other nations by rail in due time.
Whoops. Ehhehheh !! Didn't know this was on.... Eugh heugh FUUUCCK. What's poppiiIING-uh AAUUGHHH-EUGH, huhuh.

      Admiral Stack signs new Prisalian constitutional papers
      Image
      Admiral-Plenipotentiary Garfield Stack

      ​Garfield Stack, a Union Navy Admiral and the de-facto Head of Government of Prisalia, has put into place the new Prisalian Constitutional Papers of 2021 following his granting of a charter by King Manuel III of Prisalia.

      Admiral Stack, who performed a coup in the Kingdom of Prisalia back in January with the assistance of his 3rd Fleet, set up a puppet regime in the country that is loyal to the Nationalist Gold Union. After receiving the title of Prime Minister of Prisalia from the King (who was under duress), Stack embarked on a campaign to rebuild and reorganize the Prisalian government, countryside, economy, and society.

      The new constitutional laws reform how the Prisalian government works. The King of Prisalia, Manuel III, remains head of state and keeps all powers of the constitutional monarchy. Additionally, the Stack administration is reformed into a "Grand Council of National Order", which is comprised of Stack and his loyalist associates. Thirdly, the civilian government of Prisalia is restored as parliament is expected to hold a new election, and afterwards, form a typical civilian cabinet ministry government. However, the Grand Council is still the supreme authority over the civilian government, and has to approve every minister or law that is brought forward by the Prisalian parliament.

      Stack no longer uses the title of "Prime Minister" and now goes by "Admiral-Plenipotentiary".

      Several onlookers in the Nationalist Gold Union have praised Admiral Stack's efforts. Prime Minister John Paquin stated that "Admiral Stack inspires us all. He is the ideal Unioner; the peak archetype. Perhaps we need a shot of Staquismo back here at home."

      Ralph Schultes, leader of the Popular Liberal Democratic Party, praised the ongoing efforts as well. "Prisalia needs some help," Schultes said, "and the Prisalian and European economies are on the right track because of what Admiral Stack has done over there."

      minister and APA marshal

      ​The Nationalist Gold Union has formally joined the Asia-Pacific Alliance today after the APA reviewed the country's extensive application to join. The move, which shocked many foreign policy analysts, is unprecedented in the history of the NGU.

      Seward Kendal von Grimmelshausen, the current Union Minister of Defense, went to McFreedomstan today to formally accept his country's induction into the alliance. Grimmelshausen, who speaks Mandarin Chinese and Indonesian fluently, was assigned APA Marshal by the NGU government, a title whose powers will continue to be imbued into the Union Ministry of Defense.

      Prime Minister Paquin stated that the NGU's joining of the APA "helps further [his] grand vision for the world."

      The National Assembly had a confidential vote over the measure, which was approved by the body with a solid majority. The Senate was opposed to the measure but was forced to sign on after threats of "further constitutional amendments."

The Hannoverian Workers' Weekly Paper, September 17th, 2021

Bremen-Hamburg Railway Opened

The railway expansion plan, organized by the Industrieusschuss, has been completed! Chairman Beomann opened the railroad today with a short ceremony and a minor parade. Beomann called the railway a
"Victory for socialist engineering, and a massive boost to Noxtremian exports..."
The ceremony closed as the first Noxtremian shipment of steel left for Prussiaholm. The railroad is able to haul 30 million tonnes of freight daily. Beomann also expressed interests in reaching out to trade partners in Eastern and Central Europe for further trade developments and economic growth as european nations continue to struggle from the recession.

The Hannoverian Workers' Weekly Paper, September 18th, 2021

Government Announces New Trade Deal With The NGU

Two months ago, an Industrieausschuss report sent the government into a minor panic. The report stated that Noxtrem would need to increase its oil production or imports by 21 million tonnes by the year 2025, if Noxtrem were to continue its industrial growth. The panic has come to an end, because of a new deal between the NGU and Noxtrem. The new deal, formally called the "Atlantic Petrol-Steel Agreement", provides that the NGU will increase its oil exports to Noxtrem by 85 million tonnes over the next 6 years, and in return Noxtrem will remove tariffs against weapons from the NGU and provide the NGU with discounted prices on Noxtremian steel. First-Premier Strasser is championing the deal as a testament to Noxtrem's growing trade capabilities, and the practicality of socialist diplomacy.

      Leonard Roberts announces he has "weeks to live"
      Image
      Roberts' last public appearance in June

      ​Leonard Roberts, who was head of the government of the Nationalist Gold Union from 1996 to 2001, has announced that he has "weeks to live" in a public press release this morning. Roberts is currently suffering from terminal brain cancer, of which he was diagnosed last year.

      Roberts recently underwent a surgery which would remove the malignant tumor in his brain. However, the surgery only resulted in further damage to his brain, and his cancer has ended up much more aggressive than it was previously.

      Leonard Roberts ascended to power in 1996 during a constitutional crisis. Throughout his tenure as head of government, Roberts invaded and annexed the Socialist Gold Union and the peninsula of Marquette (from Worris), cracked down on radical leftist groups, defeated the genocidal Kundistan regime, got involved in a nuclear material sale scandal with Taekhuman, lost the Suez Canal to Walgreens and the Vedrupol Pact, and lost the imperial restoration civil war.

      Following his fall from power, Roberts was tried and convicted in the APSIA International Criminal Court for executing prisoners of war. He was later released in 2018 following a 17-year appeal case, where it was proven that Roberts had no intention to kill Walgreensian prisoners of war. After returning to the Nationalist Gold Union, Roberts became the leader of the New Union Party, the merger between the Conservative National Party (which he was previously leader of) and several other right-winged political parties. He fell from grace once again in 2020 after his party fell into a money laundering scandal.

      Roberts is expected to hand off his position of General Secretary of the New Union Party within in the coming days.

      The legacy of Leonard Roberts is mixed, with many praising his efforts of turning the Nationalist Gold Union into a global superpower within years of his chancellorship, while he is heavily criticized for the loss of face the country suffered after losing its Mediterranean possessions and an aircraft carrier to Walgreens.

      The former Chancellor asked for "privacy and respect" for him and his family in the waning days of his life.

Pres. Lacey Black denounces & places embargo on Miltonia




    Lacey Black just released a statement at her monthly "State Of Worris Address" containing an official denouncement of The Miltonia for their African Colonies such as The Gold Coast and Miltonian Africa. Here is the transcript below.


    "I believe that it is important for other entities to release countries that could sustain well on their own. Releasing Costa was important because Costa deserves to be its own country. Leaving a country that could well work on their own to be one of the playgrounds that you can use is awful. I am mainly speaking about the Miltonian Colonies in Africa, the 'Gold Coast' and 'Miltonian Africa.' It's time we leave Africa to prosper on their own. No country needs to be owned by another one. I am officially denouncing the Miltonia for its current use of African Colonies. Release your African Colonies, maybe you'll get the respect of the Worrisian Government back. I am also announcing an embargo on The Miltonian until they release their African colonies. "

    Lacey also said later that she would have to "cause an intervention if Miltonia did not do it by the end of the year."

Official Release from the Bundestag



10/27/2021

Public Transport Scheme

Even more than a year after the Prusso-Vanavoian War, Prussiaholm still feels the impacts of the conflict. One such impact is the increased fuel prices. While this was aided when Prussiaholm leased oil fields from Ubizytotska, we needed an alternative solution.

Our Lifestyle and Welfare Specialist Team (LWST) has been working on a solution day and night. Introducing the Public Transport Scheme. Cheap and affordable Public Transport in every major city.

We've worked with bus companies and government bus services to make cheap, environmentally safe public transport for everyone.

A lengthy tram sequence is being built in Berlin, Hamburg, Stockholm and Oslo, while bus routes are being increased in those cities plus Danzig, Konigsberg, Dresden, Leipzig and Gothenburg.

Children under 13 and Retired people (also people over 70) will ride the buses for free. High school students and University students can ride cheaper than the normal fees with their student cards, and working adults can qualify for discounts too. See http://www.prutransport.gov.pru for more information.

Some buses will be electric, but most will run on traditional fuel.

We encourage people of all ages and walks of life to consider public transport, as it is better for the environment, and cheaper than a car.

      ​INTRODUCING THE J-23 Hēi Guǎfù
      Image
      Image
      Image of the J-23 fighter during flight trials in 2020

      The J-23 Hēi Guǎfù or Black Widow when translated to English has finally reached production prototyping which means we will likely begin seeing these planes in the next year or so though it has been reported to us that they were developed for the use of the navy and were specifically developed with the new light carriers in mind.

      It has not been revealed if they will be made available for export, despite initial reports that they would be made available to the Miltonians but this deal seems to have fallen through with the recent issues regarding Miltonia and the APA.

      Performance wise they are considered comparable to a F-22 though slightly less maneuverable but faster, longer ranged, and with a better stealth profile exact details are not available at this time.

      the navy has pre-ordered 72 fighters and it is possible that Songjiang will make the fighters available to other nations for 60-80 million a plane.

      For now it is an exciting time for Songjiangian Aviation even if most of the design team is actually originally from Panjal.

FROM: DimitriKolzoff@gov.nomiconia.nca
TO: YuriyIvanov@gov.nomiconia.nca
Subject: Nomiconia-UCK border situation
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mr.Ivanov,

I am writing this on behalf of the The Nomiconian Government. This is a request regarding the current
situation of Nomiconia's and UCK's borders. We request that you please attempt to persuade the UCK
government to give us back our land, without offending them. If a deal is negotiated, we will also be
happy to accept that. Our motivation includes the Romanian population of Nomiconia. If we do not find
a way to solve this we will lose our Nomiconian cultural identity - and a lot of territory. Please try to
complete this task quickly. Our unity depends on it.

-Dimitry Kolzoff, President of the Republic of Nomiconia

Noxtrem Calls For Restructuring The ECP

In a press release today, Foreign Minister Gertrude Marten called for the "radical restructuring" of the Euxine-Capsian Pact. Noxtrem has been engaged in exasperating trade talks with the ECP for the past few weeks, and it appears the government has grown tired of talking. In her press release, Marten called the ECP, "...Totally inadequate in its codes and regulations." According to Marten, the ECP has ignored repeated internal calls for reform from both Noxtrem and Prussiaholm. Some of Minister Marten's more technical complains were that
The ECP is lacking in the basic policies and regulations of any successful economic pact. The ECP has not standardized or regulated what tariffs may be put on goods traded between member states, nor have worked cohesively to facilitate safe trade. The Bremen-Hamburg railway, a fine piece of socialist engineering, was in part built to facilitate trade with Noxtrem and other ECP nations. Although Noxtrem is exporting exponentially more now, the total lack of organization and the refusal to address the issues at hand have left Noxtrem tremendously disappointed.
In previous comments about trade, Marten emphasized the importance of international cooperation, but now she states that Noxtrem (and the world) cannot waste precious time during this hour of economic strife.

      "Minor" railway construction workers' strike "no cause for concern" according to Tbilisi
      Image
      Strikes in the province of Azov will not set back
      completion of the BSR, say government officials

      A strike among railway construction workers in the Azov province of Zanziik is "minor, and no cause for concern" according to a spokeswoman for the government speaking to reporters in Tbilisi this morning. The strike, now entering its third day, threatens to set back timelines for completion of the Zanziikin branch of the Black Seas Railway.

      Early construction on the BSR has primarily been focused on the section of rail running southward out of Rostov-on-Don toward the province of Kuban. From there the rail is planned to connect to the city of Stavropol.

      Fadey Dudyk, a spokesman for the striking construction workers, stated that dismal conditions for workers, low pay, and disparities for ethnic minorities must be resolved before construction crews would recommence work. The province of Azov is home to a significant ethnic Nomiconian demographic which has largely felt it has been neglected by Tbilisi since the province was acquired by Zanziik from Nomiconia. Dudyk claimed that ethnic Nomiconians worked for only a percentage of what ethnic Georgians or Azeris doing similar work earned on the Black Sea Railways project, a claim that has been denied by the Tbilisi-based Black Seas Railways Corporation, the private entity tasked with the completion of the vital infrastructure project.

      "We take our commitment to fair employment practices very seriously, and comply with all Zanziikin laws and regulations in its hiring policies, particularly given that we are the recipients of federal funding," a spokesman for the BSRC said when asked for comment on the claims.

      Government mediators have been dispatched to negotiate between the two parties, but little progress has been evident. Should the strike continue, it remains unclear what recourse the government and the BRSC will take.

Worrisian Occupation of Texas explained


If you haven't seen the news yet, The Worrisian Army has started occupied the Northeast area of Texas earlier today. Here it is explained.



Around 40-50 divisions worth of Worrisian troops all around the Miltonian border just began occupying the Texas cities of Houston, Fort Worth, Waco, and Dallas, and all military bases will be surrounded and occupied, hopefully peacefully. Roads will be patrolled, and all Miltonian planes will be shot down. Worris is also using the Brazos River as a defensive line.

The red area represents the planned occupied area.

President Lacey Black has said that Texas will be more and more occupied the longer it takes The Miltonia to release Gold Coast and Miltonian Africa, which Black has already denounced Miltonia for. She said "We will stay even more in Texas the longer Miltonia occupies African land."

The Hannoverian Workers' Weekly Paper, December 10th 2021

Government Establishes "Religiöse Angelegenheiten Amt"

This week, a contentious bill passed through the people's congress and onto the desk of First-Premier Strasser. The bill, signed into law as of yesterday, establishes a government ministry for studying religious affairs in Noxtrem, and removes revolution-era bans on religious practice. Noxtrem's vast protestant community was overjoyed at the bill's passage, and many are excited to go back to church this week. The new ministry -called the "Religiöse Angelegenheiten Amt"- will be headed by Willfred-Strohm, who headed the Union of Noxtremian Churches before the Noxtro-Vanavoian war.

Willfred Strohm


Herr Strohm said his first act within the new office will be to return the majority of Noxtrem's churches back to their congregations. He also expressed relief at the passage of the bill, saying that
Noxterm is writing a new era in its history. Noxtremian socialism is radical and new in many ways, but its success is partially responsible due to Noxtrem's people, Noxtrem's culture, and Noxtrem's history.


During the signing ceremony, First-Premier Strasser expressed a similar sentiment:
Our brand of socialism is dynamic and beautiful, but that beauty hinges on our people. Part of what makes our people what they are, is our religion, culture, and history. I want to give back to that, and give it the necessary acknowledgement.

SPECIAL EDITION: Strasser Calls For Vinod Kapadia To Step Down

First-Premier Strasser held an emergency press conference two hours ago to strike out on a new foreign policy goal direction. Mr. Strasser is calling for Premier Kapadia in Panjal to step down from his office, which Strasser is calling a "reactionary enemy to the people's will in Panjal." First-Premier Strasser stated that he will go as far as sanctions to achieve this end:
The actions taken by Kapadia in Panjal are repulsive. Kapadia has shown himself to be an enemy of his own people. The NGU was ahead of the game when they swatted down Kapadia's earlier power-grab, but they haven't gone far enough. Noxtrem is calling upon its allies to support a change of government in Panjal.


This policy choice comes on the heels of a meeting between the VSA and Panjali public officials. Strasser says that if a change doesn't come soon, he will act to cut off Panjal from Noxtremian trade until Kapadia steps down.

Response to International Threats
From the Desk of Vinod Kapadia - 12/12/2021


On Saturday, First-Premier Strasser of Noxtrem asked the international community to call for my resignation, citing "repulsive actions," and demanding a change of government within Panjal. Mr. Strasser went as far to claim I was a "reactionary enemy to the people's will in Panjal."

Strasser backed his words with a threat of sanctions against Panjal if I refused to step down, a needless and cruel punishment to only the poorest, most in need Panjalis, who already struggle in these trying in times. The desire to see a change of government within Panjal by First-Premier Strasser is clearly a thinly veiled attempt at forcing a more pro-Noxtrem government into power within Panjal. This move, at it's heart, is an attack on the core democratic values of Panjal. This action taken by Strasser is, as he put it, "repulsive." I, as well as my administration and fellow party members, have made the conscious decision not to concede to Strasser's threats.
