The following trading cards, along with those describing a few other players from Hulm and Pavlovsk, are given out to all the ticket buyers for today's game (10/3/1994):
Image
Mayer Müller
Nationality: Hulm
Age: 26
Position: Forward
Hulm is a team full of natural talent, and might very well be the best team in the tournament on paper. Even among this pool of talent, Müller sticks out. The forward could very well be the best in the world in his position, and he proved that in the first round match against Texas. Müller scored two great goals, including his beautiful strike from nearly half field.


Image
Max Smirnov
Nationality: Pavlovsk
Age: 38
Position: Goalkeeper
Smirnov is the oldest player still in the competition, but he seems to still have plenty of energy. He translated this energy into a goal against Tumbuland (yes, a goalkeeper scored a goal) and an otherwise very good game. He is the captain of Pavlovsk, and he will take his veteran level experience into the next round. If he can stop the Hulm forwards, Pavlovsk may have a chance, but if Smirnov does not play at the top of his game, Hulm will easily roll over Pavlovsk.

Help for All in Need!

Image


With the help of several sponsors, The Oghuz Government has begun a program meant to help allies of the nation in times of need. This project is the Village Enrichment Program, targeted at Villages in financially struggling regions. The program will consist of Shipments to an airport in Mogadishu, where trucks will collect the goods and be escorted to the poorest villages in need of supplies. The villagers will also be educated on the wonders of Christ and Coptic churches will be set up in tents.

The program is estimated to cost about 300 Million per year, and the duration of the project is unknown. Several sponsors have also signed up to fund this project and help it become successful. Although quite a few taxpayers in Oghuz are enraged by this use of money, the majority still recognises that helping others may mean Oghuz will have allies in its darkest hours.

This program has been funded by several Oghuz-based companies including Constantine's Book Newspaper. Remember that readers like you can help people in all kinds of places!

The following trading cards, along with those describing a few other players from Asteria and Yangaea, are given out to all the ticket buyers for today's game (10/8/1994):
Image
Adonis Alconder
Nationality: Asteria
Age: 25
Position: Center Midfielder
Asteria has a roster full of individual talent. Their team chemistry is not as strong, and this was shown when they struggled to get past the American Federation, one of the least talented teams in the tournament. Nevertheless, Asteria advanced, and they owe it almost completely to Alconder. His two goals proved the deciding moments as Asteria won by a single goal. Alconder's individual talent will prove to be an important weapon against Yangaea.


Image
Ki Brown
Nationality: Yangaea
Age: 19
Position: Left Midfeilder
Brown was the youngest player to play in the first round, but he does not play like a novice. He had a great game against Sentola, and worked as a constant powerhouse, never slowing down over the entire 120 minute game. He went on to score the winning penalty in the shootout, further evidence that he simply does not get tired. He will have to keep this youthful energy in the next match against Asteria, as Yangaea will need to be focused and alert for the entire match if they want a chance at pulling an upset.

Ghabar Public Dispatch

Ghabar on Middle Eastern alliances


Ghabar recognizes that many nations to the east have begun to coordinate in a form of an economic and militaristic alliance. The Afghan, Bengali, and Persian nations to the East of Ghabar are potentially strong allies, but also the Ghabarese council has expressed some concern of the military strength of such an ally due directly east. Ghabar recognizes that as a largely secular nation, it is unique within it's location, and the small size combined with large neighbors does cause us to sweat when military alliances are formed around us. The Ghabar council has expressed interest to all it's allies to potentially design alliances of it's own, to further protect our small yet wealthy nation.

The following trading cards, along with those describing a few other players from Hong Kong and Yahel, are given out to all the ticket buyers for today's game (10/16/1994):
Image
Yang Li
Nationality: Hong Kong
Age: 22
Position: Center Midfielder
Many were surprised at Hong Kong's big upset over Santa Rosa in the first round, but it would never have happened without Yang Li. The young midfielder has a unique ability to read defenders and dribble the ball, and he got himself two crucial goals in that match. If Hong Kong want to see themselves making it past Yahel, Li's performance will be crucial.


Image
Omar Abdulrahman
Nationality: Yahel
Age: 21
Position: Right Winger
Abdulrahman headed in the game winning goal last match, not an easy feat with such a head of hair. He is young, but he has amazing speed and great passing ability, making him an extremely valuable asset for Yahel on the flanks. He has an inspiring backstory, left orphaned at the age of 16 after the Yahelian Socialist Movement took both of his parents. Despite this tragedy, he persisted and trained and is now one of the best young talents in the world.

The following trading cards, along with those describing a few other players from Songjiang and Alicia, are given out to all the ticket buyers for today's game (10/18/1994):
Image
Su Xi
Nationality: Songjiang
Age: 23
Position: Forward
A boy of controversy arose when Songjiang requested that women be allowed to play in this year's World Cup. While their request was granted, they are the only team to field any female players. Only one of the three females playing for Songjiang is truly exceptional, and that is Su Xi. She plays well above the level of most of her male teammates, and has since become an international feminist icon.


Image
Christiano Messie
Nationality: Alicia
Age: 28
Position: Forward
Alicia has an extremely solid roster, but two players stuck out in their first game. The veteran Messie connected with the youngster Evo Garcia to make a beautiful goal, and their chemistry continued throughout the match. As team captain, Messie is carrying a lot of weight, but his experience and talent should make it easy for him.

      The Persian-Led Ürumqi Pact is Formed

      Marking a new year, Ruhollah Lysenko, Sheng Shicai the Great, Abdullah Abdullah, and a Bengal representative attended a press conference in Mashhad to commemorate the creation of a defensive and economic pact known as the Ürumqi Pact. This pact, stretching from Tehran to Dhaka, and encompassing the Indian sphere of Persia and the Afghan Republic, has been stated by Sheng Shicai to be
      Created to protect the economies and borders of the constituent states in the wake of the Indian war, alongside providing a united front for muslims.
      While for now the pact only includes the direct participants of the war, it has been theorized that Shicai's "united front of muslims" comment is implying further expansion into the islamic world.

      Ptyoch - Culture Today

      November 26, 1994

      Novoye-2 sitcom 'Covzstanza' pilot a smash hit
      Image
      Main character 'Giorgi Covzstanza'

      Novoye-2 has found a veritable gold mine of ratings following the airing of it's new show this previous Thursday, called 'Covzstanza'. The show is a situational comedy show, or 'sitcom', and revolves around a small cast of characters going through their daily lives. The show gets its name from the main character, 'Giorgi Covzstanza' (played by the actor of the same name), a stand-up comedian living in Daugava City. In the show, Covzstanza lives in an apartment, and is visited by his friends (who make up the other main characters). The show largely revolves around humorous dialogue that addresses what are often considered 'culturally taboo' subjects, making it stand out from the other run-of-the-mill sitcoms that air on the Novoye channel network. The show also stands out due to the fact that the main characters do not always make the right choice, and each of the four episodes which have run thus far have ended with the characters not getting what they wanted. Director Larryi Davzid appeared on Dmitry Today to discuss the show yesterday, and stated he hoped to continue creating the show for at least another season.

      An anonymous source at Novoye-2 says that the first four episodes of the show were watched by approximately 18% of the entire nation, making it one of the most watched non-sports broadcasts of all time in Pavlovsk. The show occupies the 8-8:30 time slot (UTC+3), but it seems likely the show maay move onto Novoye-1 during a prime-time time slow soon if it continues to be this popular.

November 27, 1994


Asterian Government starts to allow small amounts of private enterprises.

At the 50th National Congress today in Athens, President Varbanov announced that he would be legalizing the ability for citizens to operate small-scale businesses and enterprises. ADK hardliners scolded Varbanov for the liberal decision, while others praised him for reaching a more centrist outlook towards the stagnating economy. President Varbanov supported his decision, stating:

Ever since the Bosporus fiasco with those pesky Turks, the Asterian economy has not quite recovered from the sudden withdrawal of investors. Indeed, it seems the only way to improve our current economic situation is to allow the people a certain degree of control in our country. It is necessary that Asteria finds a balance between all things, evident here in my policy.


The decision seems unusual for Nikolai Varbanov, who is often known as one of, if not the most, conservative leader Asteria has had in decades. A firm believer in state socialism, many are suspecting that his drastic change in tone is due to the ADK opening votes for a new leader and that he is paranoid about losing control. With the new generation of ADK politicians entering the scene, with new shocking ideologies and ideas, it is no wonder that the Old Guard desperately tries to adapt in order to retain their control. Despite Varbanov's attempts at appealing to the younger crowd of the Congress, it is unlikely he will be reelected for office.

Tourism, Camino Nuevo, Royal baby, and exploratory committees


The Maldives, Caribbean, and Barcelona have all reported gains in the tourism industry. They have marketed themselves as family friendly and honeymoon worthy places to visit. Cruise lines, airlines, and hotels have worked with local governments to lower prices.


Camino nuevo, the Pharma giant which supplies medicine and medical equipment all across Europe, has hired 1000 new staff while giving existing staff a 2-5% raise. Nuevo has released new up to date needles and surgical equipment after their laboratory at the university of Madrid made breakthroughs.


The royal palace has announced Prince Juan is thriving and healthy. The Queen is set to make another appearance the the new royal very soon.


With the presidential election quickly approaching exploratory committees have began to form. So far 3 conservative candidates have formed a committee. The first being Senater Henry Bowman, the parties nomination last year and the leader in the senate, the second being former governor and Senator Rico Randlos, and the third being shockingly former one term president Diego Ángeles.
President Cortez has yet to receive a challenger for the liberal parties nomination.
Congressman Wali Rafik from the Maldives launched a committee for the economic nature parties nomination.


TOP SECRET
The Rykovian party chairman has asked for any donations from Rykovian governments to fund congressional races and possibly a presidential bid if enough can come. Currently 18 Rykovian candidates are running for a seat in Congress. The party has only raised $56,000

Government Dispatch



November 29th, 1994


Consolidating the Federation: Moving the Capital


This government dispatch is to inform the people of the Federation of coming changes. These will be distributed to major institutions and businesses, as well as TV stations and other media corporations.
Citizens of the Federation, over the past few years, our great nation has gone through many, many changes that our predecessors never would have thought possible. On the backs of every member of the Federation, old and new, I am sure we can propel our nation into further greatness.

It is because of that fact that some changes must take place in our society if we're to survive, and better yet, prosper in our current state. Namely, the centre of our Federation. Denver has served has a most fine capital ever since the Federation was unjustly thrust from Washington, but it is time for a change.

On this day, effectively immediately, preparations will begin to moving the Capital of the American Federation to Mexico, Toluca. A special capital territory will be created around the city. The President will reside in the former Tolucan Presidential House and the Government will meet in the same place.

The future is bright.

Glascom
Joining Glascom
The government of Carpathia has announced that it has finally accepted to join Glascom. The response came later than expected due to the difficulties of consolidating the internal politcs of the country after the Emperor fled our nation.


"Ciufulești-Pătrățoasa" Medical Facility - Where are they now?
The researchers from "Ciufulești-Pătrățoasa" have announced that despite the united efforts in curing Malaria, little progress has been made, due to the complicated life cycle of the parasites. However, a vaccine is expected to be made in about 5 years, but it will take a long time until it will be available to the public.

Image

Development
The government has announced that it will be searching for ways to improve tourism in Lviv. A city with many historical buildings, the former administration of the city clearly did not invest enough in it. In order to make transport easier, the Governors of Transylvania and Zhovkva will cooperate to build a Lviv-Cluj highway.
Image


The Government of Carpathia
12/3/1994

New Carpathian Diplomacy

A Carpathia without a weak leader, such as the Emperor, is a better Carpathia. The former Emperor, after fleeing from our nation, has left a legacy that most Carpathians don't accept. His imperialistic agenda has clearly worsened our relations with the neighbours. As such, the government of Carpathia appoints a new Head of Diplomacy, that better represents our people's interests: Aleksey Erdős, a true Carpathian, with a great knowledge of global and internal politics.

An apology to Kakanj

The new government of Carpathia denounces the imperialistic actions undertaken by the former Emperor and his government. We wish to restore our relations prior to the actions of the Emperor, and we apologize for his hateful actions, against the peace of Europe. We are willing to openly discuss with the government of Kakanj and hopefully convince them that we accept our past and we will make amends.

Men's International League of Football

Final Four Showdown

July 27, 1994

Kingdom of Hulm faces Hong Kong ◎ Alicia goes against Asteria



Final Four

Image

Only four nations remain in the race for the title.


Hulm vs. Hong Kong

Nobody is surprised that Hulm is appearing this far in the tournament. The same cannot be sad for Hong Kong, who has pulled off upsets against Santa Rosa and Yahel to make it to this round. The fans are all backing Hong Kong, with over half of the world favoring them to win the tournament over the three other remaining teams. Will they be able to ride this wave of support past Hulm, arguably the most powerful team in the world?
Hulm will play Hong Kong next round in Auckland Arena.

Alicia vs. Asteria

This matchup is not a huge shocker, as both teams are very strong and rated very high. Neither team looked especially comfortable in their last matches, with each winning by only one goal. That being said, Asteria is looking to be the stronger team, and will go into the match as solid favorites.
Alicia will play Asteria next round in Christchurch Memorial Stadium.

Upcoming Matches: Projections and Notable Matchups
Expert ratings and projections are provided by the Yangaean Associated Athletic Press
Note: 5 point increase for teams that won an upset last round


Here are all of the upcoming team matchups, as well as their team ratings and venues:
Hulm (80) v. Hong Kong (61): Auckland Arena
Asteria (73) v. Alicia (65): Christchurch Memorial Stadium

      Mbale Security Agency

      The Kibaki Doctrine




      Rykovian regimes have quickly expanded across the globe in large part due to the strong PR of the Pavlovsk government, and the subversive efforts of the axis of degeneracy. This axis, composed of Songjiang, Pavlovsk, and Yahel utilizes capital, diplomatic power, and military threats to coerce bordering and far off states to adopt the Rykovian socialist model. This model, which crushes traditional values and robs the treasury of revenues through aggressive privatization, is antithetical to the goals of our administration. Only a strong state, with a strong cultural foundation, can prosper in Africa. These Rykovian subversives have already claimed Salamut and the Republic of Congo through their Glascom scheme. We cannot allow further expansion. As such the Kibaki Doctrine has been drafted by senior staff to secure the future of Africa and to slay the Rykovian dragon before it grows stronger.


      The Kibaki Doctrine:
      1. All leftist paraphernalia, speech, or thought is to be immediately punished through excessive force. Only card carrying students of a licensed university are to be exempted, if and only if their materials, speech, or thought relate to Santa Rosan Afro-socialism.
      2. Foreign nationals spouting leftist rhetoric are to be immediately deported. Foreign nationals suspected of being leftists are to be immediately deported. Only Santa Rosans are exempted from this policy.
      3. Clergy of the Mbale Catholic Church must dedicate half their sermon to the evils of leftist thought and non-negro ideologies.
      4. The Republic of Congo is to have all its government permanently excommunicated publicly by his holiness.
      5. The People's Republic of Salamut is to have all its government permanently excommunicated publicly by his holiness.
      6. Police are to conduct no-knock raids in plain clothes on all suspected sites of leftist activity.
      7. Electricity and water is to be shut off for 15 days following the discovery of leftist activity in a town or village.
      8. The Mbale Armed Forces are to construct strict checkpoints along the borders of all our neighbor states. Smugglers of leftist paraphernalia are subject to punishment by the Catholic Church.
      9. The Catholic Church will leverage its influence to gain the intelligence and military support of Alicia, Hulm, and Landersvich. Britannia is not to be contacted as the Anglo menace is far worse than any leftist.
      10. Drivers licenses, business licenses, marriage licenses, and citizen IDs are to be confiscated and revoked for all suspected leftists.
      11. Overseas citizens in Yahel are to be contracted to conduct espionage, wet works, and infrastructure damaging operations in Yahel.
      12. Glascom merchant ships are to be delayed when crossing the Bab-el-Mandeb strait.
      13. Glascom media and goods are to be tariffed at 250%.
      14. Anti-insurgent tactics exercises are to be held monthly with AEP member states.



      Crystumbo bless us.

      Mbale Invites President McCarthy for Bilateral Talks

      December 7th, 1994


      Image


      Prime Minister-Pope O'jibu has extended an invitation to American Federation President, Eric McCarthy, to visit Mombasa. This is the first formal invitation to a foreign executive in Mbale history, and extensive hospitality and security measures have been taken by the Mombasa Regional Government. PMP O'jibu stated that discussion of the "Santa Rosan situation" and the "Rykovian Question" was of top priority. The meeting is set to take place in HLR Plaza, Mombasa, should the American leader accept.

      McCarthy is a man of conviction. A man that achieved an unachievable goal and endured decades of ridicule. The spirit of the negro struggle lives on in the people of the American Federation, and together I believe that we can accomplish great things.

Cola's busy day: President meets with three leaders
The President met with the leaders of the American Federation and then Pavlovsk & Yahel yesterday

SANTA ROSA - December 11th was a busy day for President Terence Cola as he met with the leaders of the American Federation, Pavlovsk, and Yahel to discuss the pressing global issues of the day.

The President had an early flight to Puerto Rico yesterday morning to hold talks with American Federation president Eric McCarthy, per McCarthy's request. During the meeting, McCarthy reportedly reaffirmed his commitment to remove ships from the Caribbean Sea, apologized for the escalation, and formed an agreement with President Cola that would keep Santa Rosa in charge of the Panama Canal until January 1, 2000 and release an independent South Barnetia in February of 1995. Additionally, the Federation pledged to hire firms to repair dilapidated Santa Rosan infrastructure in the northwest.

At noon, President Cola took a flight back to Ciudad Beldad, where he hosted General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachad of Pavlovsk and Chancellor Shaklar P.B. Reshini at his residence in the capital city. The three shared coffee and discussed Santa Rosa's possible ascension into the Glasnost Community (Glascom). Cola said he leaned in favor of joining the pact, provided that the common defense clause was excluded. Whether or not the Santa Rosa joins is up to Congress.

Cola currently enjoys high popularity in Santa Rosa, with a recent poll placing him at 78% approval and 19% disapproval.

    Private School Class Teaching Basic Mathematics


    The Tumbu Government has announced that public schools for people of all walks of life, black, white, rich, poor, are coming to Tumbuland. A new Agency of Education is being created, and plans are being made to build new public schools around the country. Most of the teachers will be trained by Yaheli trainers, coming all the way from the Middle East to help Tumbuland educate her citizens. The curriculum will include mathematics, science, the Dutch language, Tumbu history, civics, and many other optional courses, varying per state. The Yaheli trainers will not cost Tumbuland a single penny. As a token of Tumbu appreciation, President Obiang is authorizing regular Yaheli cultural exchanges to happen in public spaces.

December 17, 1994


ADK elects Dmitri Azimov as new President of the Republic.

After many weeks of deliberation, the Αστερικό Δημοκρατικό Κόμμα has elected Party-member Dmitri Azimov as the new President of the Republic. Effective immediately, ex-President Varbanov's executive powers will be transferred to Azimov, while Varbanov is evicted from the Presidential Palace. Dmitri Azimov has been a Representative since 1986 and a part of the ADK long before that. Elected for his economic and political prowess, he is expected to achieve great things in reforming Asteria's economic and diplomatic processes and structures. Already he has announced plans on pursuing a hybrid planned-market economy in order to foster innovation and growth and growing the transparencies of the state. Festivals and celebrations were held across the nation as the populace jubilated over the election of the infamous "Man of the People." We can only wait to see what greatness President Azimov will bring the Democratic Republic of Asteria.

      Habesha Insurgents Attack Alician Refugee Camp

      December 27th, 1994


      Image


      Cowardly Habesha remnants took advantage of the peace time in our country to orchestrate a horrendous attack on both our own citizens and visiting guests from Alicia. During a scheduled meet and greet with refugees, Habesha terrorists fired mortars and machine guns at the camp. Twelve Alician politicians, one journalist, two members of the Mbali Army, and thirty-two refugees were killed in the attack. Reports indicate that at least eighty others have been injured and a joint effort between Alician and Mbali physicians is underway to stabilize survivors. Security has been increased in the West Kitanga area, and a permanent garrison has been assigned to the refugee camp.

      The rotten Habesha Regime continues to plague our nation. They target the most vulnerable members of society for slaughter to try and shock our administration into capitulating. We will never give in to terrorist demands. The Mbale Government will spare no expense in protecting its citizens.
      [Mabuto O'jibu]

Office of the President of Alicia and its territories



December 27, 1994
Official Statement from the President of Alicia and its Territories Eliza Cortez

To my fellow Alicians and to the people of Mbale,

I am with you. I see you, I hear you, and I am going to do everything in my power to bring justice to the innocent lives lost in the attack against her majesty’s residency camp in Mbale.

44 peoples lives were lost today. 12 of which were congressional candidates. People who were running to represent the Alician people. 32 where innocent refugees. People her majesty has taken under her wing and helped off the streets of poverty. People countless Alicians donate to help. People Pope O’jibu cares very deeply about. Countless others lives were lost and people were injured.

This attack was orchestrated by Habesha Insurgents. These evil people who would rather cause death and torture to innocent civilians instead of diplomatically sort out are differences deserve no mercy.

Medical personnel are currently working to aid the wounded along with Mbale physicians. I hereby am using an executive order to ship and supply Mbale and Alician physicians in the residency camp with $5 million in medical supplies from Camino Nuevo.

Pope O’jibu, if there is anything you need do not hesitate to ask. An attack on your people is an attack on Alician friends. We will not tolerate another attack.

Our security and intelligence agencies are still investigating into this attack. We’ll keep you updated. Thank you.



Eliza Cortéz
President of The United Districts of Alicia

43 dead, 50 injured after shooting at Mbali church

Bahia Negra Cathedral

Salvador - 43 are dead and 50 are injured following a mass shooting at the Bahia Negra Cathedral in Salvador, in the State of Cohélet. Authorities are calling the shooting a terrorist attack, the first major one against the Mbali Catholic community of Santa Rosa.

Patriarch Buenpensar Tshinga was presiding over the Crystumbomas service, which is a holy day in the Mbali Catholic faith, when the gunman breached through the front doors of the church and opened fire with an assault rifle. The Patriarch was not harmed, though dozens of churchgoers were slain in the panic.

Salvador police chief Ronaldo Pinchez named the suspect in the case as Rudolfo Gitlera, a 26-year-old man from Pedro. Gitlera is in police custody after a brief standoff that ended with him being shot in the leg.

Gitlera is reportedly affiliated with Los Hermanos Blancos, a prominent white supremacist group in Santa Rosa. After raiding his apartment, police found white supremacist paraphernalia, such as manifestos and flags that are commonly associated with hate groups.

President Terence Cola addressed the attack in a televised statement.

"Santa Rosa stands strong against terrorists and terrorism and any attempts to divide our diverse communities," Cola said. "On this holy day for many, we pray for the dead and the wounded."

The Patriarch blamed the stigma against the Mbali Catholic Church and the prominence of racism in Santa Rosan society.

"Many are unwilling to see the Mbali Church as a legitimate representative of a real religion and express their discontent through senseless violence," Tshinga said. "At the same time, people still see black Santa Rosans as second-class citizens or not even people at all. It's just two sides of the same bigoted coin. We will continue to stand strong in the face of adversity."

Balkan Pact and economic reforms!

President Azimov delightedly announced this evening that after a summit with General Marko Đurić of Greater Kosovo and President Tihomir Orešković of Kakanj the three states will be creating a new formal alliance known as the Balkan Pact. It is described to be a political, military, and economic alliance to bring greater power to the smaller nations of the Balkans. When asked directly about what the Balkan Pact was about, President Azimov said

The Balkan Pact is a fantastic example of increasing relations between the nations of the Balkans. The world has often shunned us as being a "powder keg", and this pact is to demolish those stereotypes. The Pact is here to unite the Balkan nations and bring us to a mutual greater future, together. I appreciate the risk Kosovo and Kakanj are taking by leaving the European Council to join our cause, and Asteria will work day and night to make their transition as smooth and risk-free as possible.


There have yet to be responses from the European Council or HLR about their views on the sudden alliance.

In other news, President Azimov has issued a new set of economic reforms. The government has created two state-controlled sovereign wealth funds to control the nation's reserves and act as an investor for Asterian industry. Affirmative action and minimum wage have been abolished in order to increase competitiveness between employers and employees. Asteria has entered a number of trade agreements in order to maximize free trade between itself and other nations. The Economic Development Board has been created in order to supervise the nations economic growth and has started to aggressively attract investors from all countries of the world. The government has stopped privatizing its state-owned industries and has instead removed the limits for how large private enterprises can go. Already the government has started to purchase large stakes in private organizations for profits. All unemployment benefit schemes have been terminated in order to better save money for other government operations. The corporate tax has been reduced to 17%, with reductions and exemptions in order to nurture small business, and has become a single-tier corporate income tax system. Income tax now ranges from 0%-22% with simplified brackets, and there is now a full tax exemption for all income generated outside of Asteria. As for the welfare-state in general, it has been minimized to stoke competition.

In terms of education, the government has considerably increased funding to public schools in order to train highly skilled workers for the new generation. President Azimov has stated his wishes to make Asteria a computing paradise. Extensive infrastructure upgrades are being undertaken in order to increase efficiency.

Even culturally, the government is liberalizing. Instead of oppressing its citizens, the Asterian government is transitioning more to a parental-state, giving its children certain freedoms while making sure the herd doesn't stray too far.

A Cold World
Sultan Atajak Announces Oghuz International Stance

CONSTANTINOPLE, OGHUZ - A new announcement has been made by Sultan Atajak regarding the birth of a cold war between Mbale and its allies and the Ryvokian Commune.

In the midst of Issues, the king addressed Oghuz's stance on the world as of now. Due to our place in the world as both a monarchy and a member of Glascom, we are going to remain a neutral middle ground. However, in order to prevent anything disturbing the peace, a new reform has been implementing allowing only half of the parliament to be aligned, in order to reduce the influence of other nations on Oghuz. This, however, has also delayed the elections to mid-February.

Oghuz will not be withdrawing from Glascom, or any other agreement as of now, and will continue to be the trading partner of every nation in Conflict.

This was Erhan Katırcı reporting for Oghazetta.
