OTTO III DEAD
Otto III, King of Neuburg, passed away last night after briefly regaining consciousness.

Budapest - Only an hour after waking from his three-month stroke-induced coma last night, Otto III passed away from various complications at the age of 79. Reportedly present at the King's deathbed was Regent Josef Gulyás.

The third member of the House of Neuburg-Bourbon to die this year, the monarch has no heir apparent. Otto III passed without any children, as did his brother, who died earlier this year as well. His youngest brother, who died in the Second Great War, had two children. One of which, Louis Ferdinand, died this year as well, and is survived by his sister Elisabeth Maria, who is unfit for the role due to her gender.

As the entire legal line of succession has died out, the throne currently remains vacant. Josef Gulyás will likely continue to serve as the regent until a successor is determined or the laws of succession are changed. General Gulyás is a lifelong friend of Otto III, and was supposedly designated as regent before Otto slipped into a coma.

Otto was born to Karl Wilhelm of Neuburg and his wife Maria in 1911. He lived a lofty upbringing, typical of European royalty at the time. After passing secondary education in 1929, he met Juliane de Hesse, who he married after post-secondary education in 1933. At the breakout of the Second Great War, Otto served as an officer in the Union Air Force, and after the war in 1948, his father died and Otto became the Grand Protector of the Union.

The monarch has become a symbol of the post-war years in Neuburg, as well as a prominent Cold War leader. He rarely involved himself in political affairs, except in matters of internal security, such as in the Banat Incident. He also approved the electoral reforms of 1953 and was friendly with several African dictators, such as Kaiser August Wilhelm XVI of New Burgundy.

The nation has entered a state of mourning for the next month, and all flags of the Union and its states will be flown on half-mast. Both aisles of the Congress of Deputies issued an issue of grievance and observed the monarch's life.

With the question of a lack of successor for the monarch, Neuburg will face division about the future over who should take the throne, if at all.

Sietskian-Chinese Culture festival
As part of our Government's plan of befriending other nations, cultural festivals were hosted in both China and Sietsk. People from both nations celebrated, with traditional music, food and thoughtful debates. Another festival is planned this Winter, possibly with other countries joining.
Otto III
Even though the relations between Sietsk and the Gold Union can't be considered cordial, they did not stop our leader Vasilev Siekmeshko from offering heartfelt condolences when Otto III, Grand Protector of the Union, died. It is hard for the citizens of the Union to cope with this loss, and we hope the lack of an heir will not cause any violence in their country.
I like communism as long as I'm the leader, otherwise no.

      Nation in unrest as king stays silent.

      Peace Keeping Forces Protecting a Commercial Area

      As time moves forward, unrest grows. This is the current situation in Odabin. Odabins king Iliad has been performing his duties throughout the nation, without any public presence. King Iliad has not been seen nor been heard from by the public for the past year as if he were in hiding.

      This action has seen to the creation of multiple conspiracies, ranging from passing tyrannical laws, to the king not existing at all. None of these conspiracies have any solid proof backing them, but that has not stopped a hand full of citizens from hopping aboard.

      There has been strikes, protests, and even riots, demanding that the king comes out of hiding to reveal his "plot". Politicians, including prime minister Paul Benis, have been actively trying to diffuse the situation and settle the waters. Small groups have stood down but the larger ones still stand.

      On the last Paul Benis midnight hour, he delivered a statement; "Everyone, I am sorry that we have worried you, but trust assured there is nothing to fret over. The king has done nothing different from what he has been doing in the past. You must trust in the king, trust in me, if we want to move forward as a society. Thank you, my people.

      Some have been calmed, but some have been infuriated by the acrobatics performed to avoid the main problem of "What the king is up to.". Only time will tell how this will play out. Flip to page 13 for more details on the conspiracies and first-hand reports on the protests.

The National Infrastructure Scheme

In an effort to improve the strength and quality of life in Besgaria, Parliament and the Besgarian Business Organisation have decided to implement the National Infrastructure Scheme, a 5 year plan to develop Besgaria to it's maximum potential.

1. Revamp and expand Frihetsstad's underground metro network and expand the National Rail Line- Frihetsstad's metro network is outdated and aging. Using new train designs and new technology, we can create a newer, faster and more efficient metro network. The same treatment will be giving to rail system else where in the country. Some parts are still from the Johannian era, which need to be replaced.

2. Create better public transport in the larger cities- A tram (streetcar) system will be put in place in Frihetsstad, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham and other large cities as to facilitate better transport and economic growth. This will allow the influx of migrants to Besgaria to access work and education easier.

3. Begin construction of new, high density housing across the nation- To allow our cities to grow larger, new housing needs to be constructed to facilitate population growth. High-rise housing is economical and space efficient. To make this easier, zoning laws are being relaxed.

4. Invest into more health clinics and police and fire stations- An increasing crime rate and expanding population needs we need to react to changing times in our cities. To make sure our growing cities have access to the medical and safety networks they need, new clinics and stations will be constructed.

5. Mass industrial growth- To fuel Besgaria's ever growing manufacturing demands, a whole new array of factories will be built in empty zones, while also preserving the beauty of our country.

6. Establish green zones in our cities- To combat pollution and improve the quality of life for our citizens, "green zones", complete with parks and trees, will act as social spots while also allowing the average city dweller to escape the regular city life.

This is not the order in which the scheme will be done, but simply an outline of the scheme.

Thousands of workers are needed. Foreigners can apply and have housing, meals and other extras provided under some circumstances. Foreigners working in Besgaria can gain citizenship after 1 year in the country and and can then bring their families over.

Ministère des Outre-mer Pressures S'sek't


According to a release from the office of the Premier Minister, chief diplomat of the Ministère des Outre-mer, Alban Rousseau, has sent political recommendations to the authoritarian government of S'sek't. The oddly worded letter advises increasing economic cooperation with the Norman State, especially in regards resource exports, and implies potential kickbacks and aid to the struggling African nation. According to government sources, the letter puts a strong emphasis on cheaper exports to the Norman State and on increased openness to Norman diplomacy.

The news comes after a shocking press conference detailing the scale of growing Norman military and diplomatic involvement in K'tuuj. According to the government, our involvement has helped to pacify the eastern neighborhoods of Douala and the surrounding countryside, which has been wracked with crime. Opponents of the Dubois' administration call the involvement violent and dangerous, citing suspicious casualty reports in military clashes with the out-gunned crime syndicates. Dubois has asserted that the government is (and will) support democratic solutions to the internal problems of K'tuuj, and he touted Rousseau's successful campaign to increase aid spending to the area. The military currently controls distribution of that aid, and the leftist opposition in the National Assembly has extensively criticized the move.

Foreign Minister Mersault stated that the move to pressure S'sek't is part of the ongoing "Alban Plan", the controversial Norman strategy for promoting openness and cooperation in Africa. Mersault provided a comment regarding the issue:
I don't think our requests are aggressive, and I think the goal is just to get our African counterparts to sit down and negotiate. They have plenty to gain from entering talks with us. This move is very much in line with our ongoing effort, which has yielded very favorable results for all parties involved.

December 11, 1980

Regent Josef Gulyás proclaims "National Unity Regime", assumes increased power
The General and Regent of Neuburg has implemented several new laws that curb parliamentary power and increase the scope of his office's authority

Budapest - General Josef Gulyás, who was designated to be regent by the late Otto III, has recently decreed several new laws and provisions that solidify his executive power and curb the powers of parliament. Gulyás's reforms, which come in a package he calls the "Protocols of the National Unity Regime", are widely controversial, with many in the parliament condemning them as "eroding Neuburg's democratic principles."
Image

in Karl V Stadium, Budapest

With no legitimate successor to Otto III ever being determined, the half-German, half-Hungarian career army officer has served the role of head of state since Otto's coma and eventual death. Gulyás has shown no interest in handing the crown over to any of the possible pretenders, instead preferring to strengthen his role in the government. Many have called Gulyás's rule as that of a dictatorial president, ruling by decree and ignoring the whims of the parliament.

The first law of the Protocols has to do with the parliamentary politics, and isn't necessarily a law as it is a "reminder." The law reads that "the head of the government, the Chancellor, whose role is decided on by the King (represented by the regent), is ultimately not the subject of parliamentary oversight." In essence, Gulyás stated clearly that the Chancellor is not determined by the parliament but ultimately by him, with the law serving as a warning to Chancellor Bogdanic to not step out of bounds.

The second law of the Protocols is titled the "royal decree law", defining that "the King, who is represented by his regent, ultimately maintains the supreme authority to rule by decree, merely choosing to delegate the powers of policy and lawmaking to His Majesty's parliament." The law confirms the age-old tradition that the King has chosen to relinquish his powers to a democratically elected assembly, but Gulyás affirms that the powers are able to be wound back at any time.

The other laws, like the first two, essentially confirm Gulyás's supreme executive authority, granting him the right to rule in every aspect similar to that of the King. They also grant supreme authority over the Royal Armed Forces to the regent, and all sorts of other sweeping authorities.

Although Gulyás has not really cracked down on political opposition in the country, many are fearing the conversion of Neuburg from a constitutional monarchy to a totalitarian military dictatorship. Chancellor Bogdanic, in a statement to the Congress of Deputies, passionately stated,

"We cannot allow the Kingdom to fall to the whims of authoritarian military rule. General Gulyás, who we respect greatly, must begin the transparent process of assuming a successor to the late Otto III instead of threatening the beloved democratic processes of our great country."

Regency bans "Serbianism", cracks down on ethnic and religious minorities
The Gulyás regime has overridden constitutional provisions to repress the Serbian language and Orthodox Church, starting a row with the government
Image
Police in Temeswar

Temeswar - Regent Josef Gulyás, by decree, has declared the use of the Serbian language, in public speech and writing, to be illegal and punishable by anywhere from fines to several years in state prisons.

With the regent claiming that the Serbian language is a "wing of Vostravian propaganda" and that Serbian Orthodox clergy are "foreign agents of the east", the sentiment is being utilized to justify a crackdown on Vostravian influence on the border. The Serbo-Croatian language, which was previously recognized as two separate languages with their own alphabets and regulatory institutes, is now simply referred to as "Croatian", with the Gaj Latin Alphabet being the sole legal alphabet for the language. Now, new regulations re-unify the regulatory body for the language continuum, placing all authority over the language on the Croatians.

Additionally, all public signage in the Cyrillic alphabet has been outlawed, with several private property owners in Banat, Bosnia, and Vojvodina being smacked with heavy fines for their illegal display of the alphabet.

"I have used the Serbian alphabet my whole life, as I am a Serb who speaks Serbian," says Gavrilo Svijic, who operates a dollar store in Novi Sad. "I have no disrespect for the government or institutions, but to insist that I am a Croat is ridiculous."

Another law repeals the protected status of the Orthodox Church in Neuburg, with both the Romanian and Serbian churches facing new state persecution. Regent Gulyás, who claimed the Orthodox clergy in Neuburg are "subverting the national order and committing espionage against our state at the behest of foreign actors," already ordered the deportation of thousands of priests.

The government of Chancellor Augustin Bogdanic condemned the actions of the acting head of state, calling them "reckless" and "divisive". Members of the SUP (the junior coalition partner in the parliamentary government), including Vice Chancellor Petru Petrescu, have threatened to unseat Gulyás for his state-sponsored persecution of Serbs.

"The butcher of Banat has no legitimacy or claim to attack the nations of Neuburg," Petrescu said in a statement to the Congress of Deputies. The Vice Chancellor argued for the abolishment of the regency and monarchy altogether, claiming that "the country cannot fall to the grasps of an unelected dictator."

General Gulyás told Volksblatt reporters that "Petrescu should keep his lying gypsy mouth shut."

"Cyrillic was a Stupid Alphabet Anyway" Says Many in Light of Banat Controversy
When polled for their opinion on Neuburger activity in the "Serbian" Banat, most people said they supported Neuburg in helping to remove the Cyrillic alphabet from the world. "Russian really sucks, just use a better language already. Neuburg is doing the right thing by getting rid of those people and making them write normally." Says a farmer who supports Neuburg's activity in the Banat. The Prisalian government has yet to give an official statement.

MEMORANDUM FOR:
Hans Eichenbaum, Minister of Economic Activities
Leopold Mann, Deputy Minister of Economic Activities
Heinrich von Lahntal, General Secretary of All-Union Introspective Intelligence

FROM:
Josef Luitpold Müller, All-Union Intelligence Captain for Economics

SUBJECT:
Economic Policy Council Meeting on the Result of Probes for International Trade

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As directed by the Ministry of Economic Activities on the 22nd of Decmeber, 1980, the Economic Policy Council has concluded
its probe for the establishment of trading relations with the Norman State, Neuburg, and Besgaria, which was initiated on the
29th of December 1981, and which was concluded on the 24th of January 1981, and about which a report was constructed from
the 24th of January to the 26th of January. The fully-detailed report has been sent to the Minister of Economic Activities and
the Deputy Minister of Economic Activities, and it is they who should be contacted as per need of this full report.

This memorandum will detail the results of the probe for the purpose of record keeping.

On the probe of the Kingdom of Neuberg, the Executive Committee for the Economic Policy Council established contact with
authorities of the Kingdom of Neuberg on the 3rd of January 1981, and while originally told by government officials
representing the parliament that negotiations would not take place between the Kingdom of Neuberg and the UFSCR,
Josef Gulyás, Regent of the Kingdom of Neuburg, intervened and met directly with Councilman Hans Webber. The meeting was
a massive success for the Economic Policy Council and the new government. Due to political tensions between the regent and
parliament, however, the Kingdom of Neuburg has been marked as being in a state of “unstable acceptance of economic
cooperation”.

On the probe of the Norman State, the Executive Committee for the Economic Policy Council established contact with
authorities of the Norman State on the 2nd of January 1981, and a meeting, originally scheduled for the 13th of January 1981,
later rescheduled to 17th of January 1981, was arranged between a yet-to-be-determined Economic Policy Council
Representative and the in the Norman State. Councilman Georg Konrad Rausch met with Edmund Lamartine of the Norman State
on the 17th of January 1981. Significant progress was made. The Norman State has hence been marked as willing to cooperate
economically with the UFSCR. In return for the vague promise of ‘greater European cooperation’ by the UFSCR, the Norman State
agreed to let the UFSCR make limited exports.

On the probe of the United States of Besgaria, the Executive Committee for the Economic Policy Council established contact
with authorities of the United States of Besgaria on the 8th of January 1981. Authorities of Besgaria refused to meet with any
representatives of the UFSCR to talk on economic propositions. Three attempts were made to schedule a meeting between the
Economic Policy Council and the United States of Besgaria, none of which resulted in the scheduling of a meeting or conference
on the matter of trade relations or economic policy. A probing of private industry cooperation in the United States of Besgaria
found that Tesco PLC was willing to secretly buy UFSCR made goods at a reduced price, notably textiles, without permission from
the government of Besgaria. Future meetings are planned with representatives of Tesco PLC, but as of currently the UFSCR has
begun to sell domestically produced goods to Tesco. The Besgarian government has been marked as unwilling to cooperate
economically with the UFSCR, however, on page 28 of the full report of the probe, Tesco has been noted as a possible means to
establish formal trading relations with Besgaria.

February 7, 1981

GENERAL GULYÁS SURVIVES ASSASSINATION PLOT
Among the conspirators are Chancellor Bogdanić, who has now been sacked
Image
Gulyás reading off names of those responsible
to the Congress of Deputies

Budapest - Regent Josef Gulyás has survived a car bombing outside the Burgpalast today. The bomber was apprehended afterwards and was found to be collaborating with 81 members of the Congress of Deputies, including Chancellor Augustin Bogdanić. Shortly afterwards, the Congress was dissolved, all collaborators were arrested, and Bogdanić escaped the country.

The perpetrator of the bombing was Dragoje Vladić, a rogue officer of the Budapest Police Department, who came in contact with a fifth column in the parliament who intended to undermine the legitimate rule of General Gulyás. Vladić then worked with several of the Deputies in the Congress to uncover security loopholes and set the conditions that would be optimal for a successful murder of Gulyás.

However, by the sheer grace of God, Gulyás survived the attack unscathed. He later made an appearance at the Congress, ordering it dissolved and having the deputies arrested. Chancellor Bogdanić was nowhere to be found, only incriminating him more. He has most likely escaped Neuburg.

The Regent ordered a new caretaker government to be formed, declaring himself to be Chancellor. With the offices of head of state and head of government being united for the first time in centuries, Gulyás has adopted complete and total control of the state organ. His government is staffed with his supporters in the Union Constitutionalist Party and the National Centralist Party, both of which he plans on merging with the Legion of St. Michael the Archangel to form a "Patriotic Front".

"The attempt on my life was orchestrated by a fifth column beneath our very feet" said General Gulyás to Volksblatt. "All further actions at my behest will be ordered with the purpose of securing the safety of our country."

Among the conspirators were the majority of Bogdanić's cabinet, who knew well about the planned attack ahead of time and made way for it to happen.

Gulyás's address to the now dissolved Congress was broadcast live on TV, and after exiting the building, massive crowds of supporters were formed to praise the General and his actions to defend the integrity of the state.

Gulyás later announced plans to hold a national referendum to gauge the popular support for his policies and actions, and to determine whether or not he has the support of the majority of the people of Neuburg.

      Regency takes effect.

      Stanislava Stepanova, minister of defence, adressing the situation.

      For and extended period of time, every Odabeaner has been blindfolded. Blindfolded and not allowed to see what was really going on in the nation, but now the blindfold is removed. The veil, gone. The curtains pulled back. The truth revealed. For much time, King Illiad's whereabouts had been unknown, but now, we have been informed of the standing of our king.

      Minister of defence Stanislava Stepanova was the one to break the truth to us at the king's palace on the seventh. As it turns out, King Illiad has been dead for a month now.

      "For three months we have withheld all information about the king. This ends now. The king had fallen ill five months ago, and three months ago, he had become bedridden, and sadly, one month ago, he passed away. We restricted all information about the king whilst preparing the new one to avoid any complications that might have arose. Now that all the cards are on the table, I am to announce that a grand funeral will be held in front of the palace, on the twelfth. Whilst the new king is prepared, a Regency will come into effect. The designated regent, Allan Vierkevitch will be enstated tomorrow at sundown."

      When asked about the Vostrovia situation all that Stanislava had to say was "Their leader is a sponge and should be treated like one.". What was meant by this, she would not expand on. Officials do not know to consider that an insult or odd comparison.

      The shocking reality has been placed upon all of us. Protests are coming to a halt. Riots have all but ceased. The only next step is to wait on the reveal of the next king of Odabin. Speculations run amock yet there is no solid evedence that solidifies the next large step in Odabins future. Flip to page 23 for 18 easy tips for perfect complexion, from Paul Benis.

S.S.A.G Recent Operations Report

Classified Report: National Security Clearance Level 8 required to read this document. For all intents and purposes, this is top secret. By reading this, you are agreeing not to distribute it unless authorised by the express permission of the Rikesprasident, SSAG Director or Minister of Defense.

Compiled by Commander-Director, Viktoria Elssler.

On March 13th, SSAG Reconnaissance Squadrons Eagle and Viking entered the Republic of Bulgregia. Their mission was to collect intelligence, sow dissent and destroy certain defenses and infrastructure to make a potential, future invasion less difficult. The objective of a future invasion would be to increase our nations power projection (We've recently taken a back seat to our Norman allies) and secure a protectorate in Africa. While the resources of Bulgregia are not as rich as they are down south, a protectorate there would be beneficial for resource extraction. Diplomatically, Bulgregia is not tied to any particular ideology. The Normans and Japanese would not help them out and the Communists would need something in return for them. The only diplomatic worry is a potential neighbour aiding them, but that is unlikely.

The Freedom II carrier group, currently stationed in the Gulf of Guinea (thanks to Norman help) will move north to Bulgregia and deliver a series of, as of yet, unspecified demands, and if the Bulgregians were to reject this, we would fire into the country and air strike the major cities. One of the goals of the SSAG agents will to be to remove anti-aircraft capabilities and make this possible. After that, we would give the Bulgregians another chance to consider the demands. Only after that will we do a proper invasion.

All of this is in the long term. Preparation is only beginning now.

Overall, this will allow Besgaria to increase it's influence outside of Europe and compete with our friendly rivals, the Normans. It also is a step in keeping up with the Japanese and Sietskans.

      Stunning Election Win!


      Elections for electorate, state and Rikesprasident positions occurred this week. The Besgarian Capitalist Party, leader by CEO Georg Westermarck, won in all 7 states and secured his own spot as Rikesprasident of the United States of Besgaria. 370 out of the total 500 electorates were won by the BCP.

      Westermarck will officially become Rikesprasident on June 1st where the traditional ceremony will occur for transferring the role from Oskar Sjokrigare to Westermarck.

      Westermarck vehemently plans on sticking to his campaign promises. He has said, "The National Infrastructure Scheme will be continued and maybe even expanded. We will continue to accept more immigrants, workers and students into the country. Closer ties are going to be worked on with the Norman State and Clanzia and perhaps some other countries. New military equipment and infrastructure will be constructed and the military as a whole will be modernised and continue to push the course of innovation."

      Cabinet changes are to be announced in June, however, Westermarck has stated that some of the more prolific members of the Cabinet will be staying, like war veteran Minister of Defence, Wulf Waldmuller and legendary ex-insurance broker, Goystien Shinkleberg.

      Under Westermarck's leadership, Besgaria will be brought into a new era of economic prosperity and growth.

      Besgaria über alles!

Latvichka Announces First National Technological Developments

Latvichka has long been the "Stubborn Old Man" of the world, completely disregarding most modern technological development. Our technology is largely the scraps of those other nations willing to trade with us. However now we have begun to design our own national technology that is designed to coexist with our traditional lifestyle. First and foremost is the development of our first nationally designed tank. The T-1224 is a modern Main Battle Tank armed with our modernized design of the 122mm main gun. The tank is designed to be easy to learn yet remain effective in the hands of our soldiers. We have made strides in some small designs for general health, such as water collection and purification, as well as training in how to maintain pastures for our nomads, using some devices for spreading seeds and fertilizer when they shift to different pastures.

The first prototype of T-1224, as the name states it is the 4th attempt at designing this vehicle, finally resulting in one that is sound in its engineering.

Mersault Clears Pathway to Talks with Vanavoy


Nearly 5 months after initial talks with the Vanavoian government over trade, Foreign Minister Mersault has confirmed that he will be reaching out to Vanavoy for further discussion on "European Issues." These talked would be the first wholesale attempts at diplomacy with Vanavoy in nearly 40 years, and members of the national assembly, on both sides of the political spectrum, are questioning the idea.

The ruling regime in Vanavoy reached out to the Dubois' administration in January to discuss trade and de-isolation. Dubois' refused to speak to the Vanavoian government directly, instead sending the Edmund Lamartine, a high-ranking Norman diplomat. A landmark deal was reach in late January to allow minimal trade, with the Normans reserving the right to apply tariffs on Vanavoian goods. Now, Mersault seems ready to apply more pressure, releasing this statement:
The government of Vanavoy has been cooperative so far, and we [of the Foreign Ministry] truly think that friendlier relations are a possibility. The WETC is still in a relatively infantile phase, and another friendly european nation certainly helps our cause.


The Premier Minister could not be reached for comments, as he is currently involved in discussions with fellow WETC members regarding military cooperation. Trade has been a major focus for Dubois' but his policies have yet to be tempered in potentially contentious discussions with communist nations.

Diplomacy regarding the WETC has grown difficult, with many nations in the communist bloc denouncing actions taken by the Norman State and Besgaria, calling them imperialistic and dangerous. A good agreement with Vanavoy could help alleviate tensions between the WETC and the communist block.

      Westermarck Rushing "anarchic" levels of business reform


      True to his campaign promises, Rikesprasident Westermarck is reversing some of the SLP's controversial business reforms. In 1971, the SLP passed the Business Protection Act which put many restrictions on founding and running a business. Such restrictions included foreigners not being able to found businesses after a certain amount of time, longer review processes for permit applications, among others.

      As well as removing the Business Protection Act, Westermarck made a statement about future plans:

      "Besgaria used to be the global centre of business, finance and commerce. Frihetsstad was the city where the world's most important business actions took place. However, thanks to the the SLP's controversial, unpopular and quite frankly, anti-Besgarian acts Frihetsstad and Besgaria as a whole has lost this status. This is the first of many, many reforms we'll be making to the economy. Reversing the Business Protection Act is the first step towards making Besgaria the seat of the financial and business world.



      In other news...
      •70.5 million people live in Besgaria :
      Population estimates put Besgaria's population at over 70,500,000 people. This is one of the highest in Europe.

      Royal Palace of B'rk


      After several months of occupation and the construction several "integration camps" across Wakastina, King Zimbo XI has declared the former lands of Wakastina to now be apart of "G't'r B'rk'n 'Fr'c'." Citizens gathered in the capital city of B'rk, B'mb', to celebrate the occasion outside King Zimbo XI's Royal Palace. At one point during the celebrations, King Zimbo XI emerged from the palace and gave a speech to the crowd, saying:
      Great citizens of B'rk, the triumphs we have had in the past months are merely a drop in the Baobab sap compared to what is yet to come. The people of B'rk shall not rest until we show this miserable continent the prosperity it deserves! The savages who rule some of the other states in 'Fr'c' know as much about leadership as a pile of Okapi dung. One of these such leaders is Magubu Cambre, "leader" of Mabregre - a backwards communist wasteland, right on our eastern border. It is time we show the communist degenerates of Mabregre the light of the B'rk'n sun! Just as the Wakastinan rats fell, by God, they shall do the same!


      Shortly after the speech, B'rk military forces began to gather at the western border. As of now, no response has been issued by the Mabregrean government regarding the speech and troop movements.

      Mabregrean Forces launch attack on B'rk

      Image
      Mabregrean Soldiers stationed at the Ubangi River.

      At approximately 3:00 AM this morning, Military forces of the Socialist Republic of Mabregre launched an offensive into southern Gr't'r B'rk, in what the Mabregrean Premier Minister Magubu Cambre IV has labelled a "pre-emptive strike." The surprise attack comes just the night after B'rk'n King Zimbo XI called Magrebre a "backwards communist wasteland,"and ordered his military to the border of Mabregre.

      Premier Minister Magubu Cambre IV made a short statement to the press regarding the attack at 8:00 AM this morning:
      I heard King Zimbo speak yesterday about his ambitious goal of expansion into Mabregre, and he thought his threats could intimidate our great country into submission. Unfortunately the "Great King" has shown his hand too early-- his forces didn't even have the time to make it to our southeastern border-- and this is the price we will make him pay.


      Numbers-wise, the forces of B'rk outnumber those of Mabregre by a decent amount. However, Mabregrean ground forces have moved quickly to cut off the B'rk'n forces stationed in the far southwest of the country, and are in position to cut off a significant portion of B'rk'n forces which were stationed in the southwest. In the north, things remain largely quiet. Magrebrean forces reportedly dug in at the Congo and Ubangi Rivers along the border, and B'rk forces did the same. We will update you on the situation as it develops.

S.S.A.G Recent Operations Report

Classified Report: National Security Clearance Level 8 required to read this document. For all intents and purposes, this is top secret. By reading this, you are agreeing not to distribute it unless authorised by the express permission of the Rikesprasident, SSAG Director or Minister of Defense.

Compiled by Commander-Director, Viktoria Elssler.

SSAG Agents in Bulgregia have compiled a myriad of useful information regarding a possible invasion. Possible landing spots, roads, etc. Agents have also done their part in inciting violence among black rebel groups. One of the groups called the "Thundering Warriors" is currently in formal combat with the Bulgregian armed forces. The group is experiencing some success but overall it is simply weakening the Bulgregian Amred Forces at the very least. A possible partnership could be made but we do not need it.

SSAG Agents posing as foreign arms dealers has supplied the the rebels with weaponry to assist and do further damage to the Bulgregian government. Anti Aircraft guns and other defences on the coast have been sabotaged to minimise casualties.

We should deliver our demands soon. In the mean time, agents will continue to cripple the Bulgregian military and supplie rebel groups.

      Council doubles Religion Tax to increase military budget, Church calls for Civil Disobbedience

      A month after the Pope's declarations on the decadence of our Nation, the backlash from the government was short to come: the current tax on Religious organizations was doubled starting from the next fiscal year in September. This was probably aimed at reducing the huge number of new pagan religions that have sprung up in the last year, but was take as a personal attack from many christian groups in the country. One of the more violent groups, Alba Dorata, has called for a "Civil uprising against the devils that are ruling this country" with a frightening new title on its own periodic "Il guerriero di Dio". Councillor of Defence commented on the situation this morning:

      We hope the people of this nation will understand that our is not an attack on any religion in particular. As long as religion is not an excuse for violence and crime we have no problem with it.


      On the other side of the fence, Pope Sistus IX called this a "personal attack against all Christians" and asked all the faithful to be act in "civil disobedience against a criminal law".

      The conflict between New Burgundy and New Memel-Ndongoland has suddenly reignited as military forces from both countries began to skirmish at the border. The first shots were reportedly fired along the Kwango River, with both sides claiming the other engaged first. After the first skirmish began, New Burgundian forces began engagements at multiple other points along the border. The last shots were fired early this morning, but the situation is certainly not over, as at 9:00 this morning Kaiser August Wilhelm XII of New Burgundy issued a statement demanding the New Memelian leadership apologize for their "aggressive actions" and cede the regions Alto-Zambeze and Lumbala N'guimbo to New Burgundy. New Memel-Ndongoland has called for all countries to embargo against New Burgundy for their "blatant aggression."

      Al-Apayayah, Hargeisha, Rabak, Guinea, and Nigeria have once again called for immediate mediation between the countries at a summit in Addis Ababa.

      All-Union Workers Party Seizes Government

      The All-Union Workers Party (GUAP), now the majority party, voted today to replace President Georg Krahl, Chairman of the CFSP, with Chairman Willem Linssen of the GUAP. According to official record the reason for the change of government was a failure to comply with majority consensus of the Supreme Council. With the GUAP now in complete control the CFSP has officially become leader of the opposition. The CFSP has lost nearly all of their power and authority in the recent election, and now most of the nation looks to the GUAP to lead the country into a new era of international solidarity with socialist allies and cautious cooperation with capitalist aggressors. The GUAP has made promises, however, that they will not allow the influence of imperialists steer the UFSCR away from its destiny as leader of the free socialist world.

      [TO BE OMITTED IN PUBLIC RELEASE]

      Domestic Release of the Spelcom™ In the Dutch Market

      After over a year of work, state operated company Neuerung Software has developed a prototype home gaming computer which has been released into the markets of four of the Council Republics in the UFSCR as a test both of how well the hardware works as well as how well it will be received by people living in urban environments, which is the target demographic. The self-explanatory name Spelcom™ (A Dutch portmanteau of ‘Game Computer’). The 8-bit system is capable of playing a number of popular of arcade games by using game cartridges. Depending on how well it works and how well it sells the console may be permitted to sell to the entire UFSCR.

      Mabregrean forces pushed back by B'rk, Cambre calls for assistance
      Image
      Mabregrean Premier Magubu Cambre IV.

      After multiple days of attempting to push their soldiers towards the B'rk'n capital of B'mb', Mabregrean soldiers found themselves spread out and short on supply. On the 23rd, B'rk'n forces began a counterattack, and Mabregrean soldiers had no choice but to retreat back to their home territory. Yesterday, B'rk continued it's counterattack into Mabregrean territory, facing heavy losses at the river crossings. As of today, B'rk'n soldiers stopped their advance outside the city of Kikwit, presumably to resupply.

      Due to the unsurprising turn of events, the Mabregrean Premier has made a statement pleading that fellow communists send forces to help the now desperate country:

      As our struggle to contain the B'rk'n menace grows increasingly desperate, I must ask all our communist brethren-- Nigeria, Guinea, Nyanza, Vanavoy, Sietsk, and all others-- to come to our side and help us hold back this militaristic regime which looms over our nation.


      Most with any amount of intellect have deemed it highly unlikely that any communist states actually heed the call from Premier Cambre, seeing it as a complete waste of time. More on this story as it develops.

      Chairman Linssen Orders Intervention In African Affairs

      After a cry for help was issued by the Premier of Mabregre, GUAP Chairman Willem Linssen made an announcement that the Peoples' Army of the Supreme Council (VAdOR) of the UFSCR would intervene to some capacity in the African situation. Hoping to use African conflict to test the largely ceremonial Peoples' Army in actual combat, Linssen promised that the VAdOR would become involved to some extent in the Congo river basin. In addition, the Navy of the Workers will, with the help of the Supreme Council, attempt to cooperate with socialist nations in Africa to establish a naval presence for the UFSCR in the South Atlantic. Linssen stated:
      All socialist nations of the world have the closest kinship, and our fair and benevolent union must be the father which the socialist world needs. It is for that reason that we must have total solidarity with the nation of Mabregre in their struggle. The days when the great people of this union labored quietly and were too afraid to intervene in international theatre are over. Now we have finally come to seek our destiny. The Union of Federative Socialist Council Republics ought to be the leader of the socialist world, and as a leader, we must sometimes boldly take action when our socialist comrades stay quiet.

      The CFSP attacked Linssen relentlessly over his bold move calling him a 'warmonger', a 'traitor to the socialist cause', and an 'imperialist'. The move, however, has garnered a great deal of public support, and opinion of Linssen, even among members of the CFSP, has skyrocketed to an official 77% approval rating.

      More news about the UFSCR's course of action will be detailed as it is dictated by the Chairman.

Responding to Mabregre's call for help
As part of Sietsk's promise to defend other nations with similar governments, we see it as necessary to help Mabregre in their war. The animals of B'rk have declared war on Mabregre and now we must help our ally, and punish the agressors. Sietsk will be sending 50,000 soldiers in Mabregre to fight the enemy, and together with the forces of Vanavoy victory should be certain. We are currently negotiating a way of access through K'tuuj or Punufang. Cooperation will be rewarded.
I like communism as long as I'm the leader, otherwise no.
