August 1, 1993

Asterian Government invests heavily in Greater Kosovo industry, opulent returns expected.

Asteria has always been a large foreign investor within the Southern Balkans region, but recent investments within Greater Kosovo has brought that standing to a whole new level. The Asterian government has given the Kosovan government a 40-year $20Mn loan, at 4.5% interest, to develop the countries oil fields. In return, Asteria will acquire 5% of the oil the country produces. Economists have likened this deal to the ones conducted by the Landersvichian bank HLR in various African nations. In addition, Asterian construction companies will be building $450Mn worth of infrastructure within Greater Kosovo, at a competitive fee to other European companies. In addition, Greater Kosovo agrees to sell vital minerals and ores to Asteria at a special discount in order to supply the nation's metal consumption. Independent Asterian investors and financial institutions have also began to invest the nations drilling, mining, and manufacturing operations in hopes of great profits. Greater Kosovo is quickly becoming a major point of interest for the Asterian people.

Image


Politically, Asteria has offered Greater Kosovo its unconditional support in its endeavors, and hopes to become much closer with the nation. Officially, the countries of Asteria and Greater Kosovo have signed a non-aggression pact, a sign of growing trust and friendship between the two nations. President Valerieva has invited General Marko Đurić to the Presidential Palace in Athens for a diplomatic visit between the two leaders, and to show the General the potential benefits Asterian economic assistance can provide to Greater Kosovo.

    A Warning to Asteria
    To the leader of Asteria,
    Since 1916 more than 120,000 hectares of Karamani owned land in Asteria has been confiscated and seized to the state or sold. This land is a legal possession under the Karaman family. However, after 75 years the land is still under foreign possession. This is a warning. If the Cheramoti-Chrisopoli estate is not returned to Karamani possession by August 14th, Asteria will be embargoed and access to Bosporus will be blocked off.

Office of the President


August 12, 1993

While the Asterian people do rely on the Bosporus Strait for lucrative trade with Pavlovsk, it is asinine for a foreign government to believe that we would give up rightfully Asterian land for something as silly as access to a canal. Need I remind you King of Oghuz that it was you who originally invaded the innocent people of Asteria? By all accounts of history, the "Cheramoti-Chrisopoli Estate", as the Oghuzi call it, is Asterian soil through and through. The 120,000+ hectares that Oghuz demands is now home to thousands of Asterian citizens, businesses, and industry. It does not belong to the state as they wrongly said. It has been part of the private sector ever since the beginning of Asterian Rykovian Socialism. It is not the governments place to seize land from the populace who worked so hard to obtain it, and we will not cower to the same nation who we won independence from. It was the weakness of the Oghuzi crown that allowed the Asterian people to revolt in 1916, and it seems that ever since that crown has been reinstated Oghuz has regressed to a foreign policy of all bark and no bite. Until further notice, Asterian land will remain Asterian land indefinitely.

CONFIDENTIAL

International Dossier Report

August 13, 1993

Europe
Alicia
Alicia is only mildly importan to us do to distance and only moderate trade with them though we would not mind greater trade if it were to present itself.

Landersvich
Landersvich has proven to be an incredibly annoying thorn in our side when it comes to our efforts in the African markets. our mutual interests in Africa have had our companies butting heads at every turn. outside economic rivalries our associations with this European nation we have had little conflict or reason for conflict or concern.

Hull
Another monarchy this one doesn't seem to present a threat to us or our allies. increased trade with them would be desirable if possible.

Sundsvall
The Kingdom of Sundsvall tries to be a dominant power in the region but we are not sure if they are really succeeding or not. There ambition is reason to be wary at minimum.

French Nations
We wasted time and money trying to keep these snail eaters from killing one another, eventually they had it out anyway to no real conclusive point the french are still divided and none seem to have the will to gain control of the region. Much of Songjiangs opinion of European strategy and tactics is based upon the french and if the other Europeans possess the same courage and effort as the french than Pavlovsk has little to fear from them.

Svallbard
We know almost nothing about this nation other than what we know from Councilwoman Freyja Vandenbrock. They are too far away and too small to be considered a threat, or worthwhile ally.

The Americas

American Federation
The American Federation is a huge trade partner with Songjiang and less antagonistic with our allies than the Niagara Union. Conflict between us would be regrettable.

Niagra Union
These Communist hard liners have recently began to see things our way but this seems to embarrass them. Now that they have discovered the truth perhaps we can begin to work more closely with them.

Santa Rosa
Santa Rosa is an interesting nation that many Songjiangians seem to enjoy visiting its control of the Panama Canal ensures we will try to remain cordial even when they do things that may irritate us.

Africa

Mbale
The Republic of Mbale is complicated its a good place to expand our markets too but they tend to disregard our laws against missionaries in Songjiang trying to spread that ass ended religion of theres. While we can repect the pope using religion to unite his people he also seems to use it to spread discord in other regions, more importantly we cant allow the spread of a religion that's leader is also what amounts to an African warlord.
the recent loss of naval bases do to our cracking down on his religion in Songjiang was unavoidable.

Asia

Yahel
Yahel is our closest ally and are critical to our fuel needs in Songjiang.

Pavlovsk
Our second closest ally and most import strategic ally.

Japan
Our relationship with them has never been better but they remain a threat we must be constantly vigilant against. continued trade with Japan is our path to economic greatness.

Persian Sultanate
This warlike nation has been both a boon and thorn in our side. They invaded and annexed Tibet which we held territorial claims to but they have also been a good place to dump off excess military hardware, and sell weapons to. If they ever calm down and hand over Tibet we could get along. We do wish they were more like Yahel when it comes to religion. They have recently become a major power in the region but one we can still easly manage if they decided to come our direction or threaten our interests.

Oceania/Pacific

Senatola
Trade with this nation is decent but could be better.

      Work begins on the new monorail


      After months of planning, the long awaited monorail is now ready to be started. The entire system, priced at $27 million/km, will connect every section of the nation to reduce the congestion of the city roads; this will replace the already present tram system. Citizens and workers of TItano will be granted a considerable discount on the season tickets and on the permits necessary to use the monorail, with tourists expected to be among the main users of the new system. The trains are planned to be divided in 4 compartments, to allow for the better use of space and to help the proper social interactions: economy, basic compartments for the most modest users, up to luxury, for the classy traveler that values his personal space and comfort. As expected, for reasons of social security the monorail will be only accessible to rank 2 citizens or above.

      ​Pavlovsk acquires the Bosporus Strait, Oghuz joins Glascom
      Image


      The State Committee announced today that the FPRP had agreed to a deal with the nation of Oghuz which transferred ownership of the Bosporus Strait, along with the Dardanelles Narrows, to Pavlovsk. In exchange for control over the strait, the Oghuzian state has been granted the status of full membership into Glascom. This means that Oghuz is the sixth member of Glascom, and now has a vote in the Glascom Council in Tashkent. Glascom leadership is reportedly already working with Oghuzian leadership to eliminate all tariffs and border restrictions between Oghuz and other Glascom members, and bring Oghuz up to code with all Glascom policies.

      A new governmental agency called the "Pavlovski Strait Authority" (PSA) has been established, and will be tasked with managing regulations and fees at the strait along with ensuring safe passage through the area for civilians. A small detachment of the Black Sea fleet consisting primarily of coast guard ships and patrol boats has been dispatched to the naval bases in the region, and will now be acting as part of the Pavlovski Strait Authority.

      The General Secretary gave brief remarks regarding the deal this afternoon, stating that he was "glad that the new Oghuzian government is willing to set ideological differences aside in the name of greater prosperity and cooperation."

      AEP Bill of Rights Signed by all Members

      August 23rd, 1993

      Image

      The leadership of all AEP member states met today in Mombasa to draft a historic document that would protect the basic human rights of all Africans under the AEP. The right to electricity, water, and food is now guaranteed by the AEP to all citizens and work is now underway to ensure that this standard is met across the AEP by 2000. The right to organize and the right to private property will also be protected by AEP governments.

      The AEP, in large part thanks to our associates in HLR, is now in a position to provide its citizens with the rights that many in the developed world enjoy. Africa will no longer be looked down upon as a charity case.

      AEP Invites Four New Members, Experts Warn About HLR Neo-Colonialism


      Shortly after drafting the "African Bill of Rights", the AEP started head hunting for new members. States invited include the Republic of Congo, Tumbuland, Mutumbo, and Riviere Verte. While those looking on from the outside might see the move as good thing and a no brainer for African states, it is important to know that the AEP is a private organization. HLR, not the Landersvich state, is the main organizing body of the AEP. The goal and responsibility of the AEP can be changed at will by HLR executives. Interest rates and funding are subject to the whims to the massive european corporation. What HLR is doing is effectively no different from what the Royal Dutch Trading Company or the Yangaean Empire did centuries ago, only this time using credit and debt traps instead of brute force. We warn African leaders to stay away.

Government releases budget plan for new infrastructure project
Image

President Wengu has released a new budgeting plan for an impressively large-scale infrastructure development project within Asteria. The plan calls for 10,000km of two-lane paved road (total $20Bn), 5,000km of four-lane highway (total $20Bn), and 1,000km of rail ($2.3Bn). Taxes will be temporarily raised by 2% across all brackets for the next five years to compensate for the development costs. In total, the project costs $42.3Bn, and is expected to take around 6-7 years to complete, although parts of it will be available for travel as more and more is constructed. The construction will be done by multiple state owned companies, a few of which President Wengu himself owns large stakes in. The plan will be partially financed by the Bank of Athens and Hutchinson-Ford. It seems our honorable President Wengu wants to help us connect with our brethren so we can further develop a sense of brotherhood and nationality, he is like a doting father to all of us.

President Wengu has also announced plans to further increase the government's role in the Asterian economy. Plans are underway to greatly expand the influence and role of the state-owned Bank of Asteria to make it an indomitable competitor in the national finance sector. On a somewhat contradicting note, the government has begun to sell small stakes in some key sectors such as electricity and mining, allowing for more Asterians to amass personal fortunes of their own. President Wengu plans to travel to Bosnia later this month to meet with General Đurić about the future relations between Greater Kosovo and Asteria.

European Development

The European Mega-Highway, which Gaulbert Erbauer and an Alician construction company have been working tirelessly on, is near completion. The project will boost economic development in Europe; allowing for more tourism, increased shipping volume easier access to trade goods. Infrastructure development is expected to create a sense of unity among European nations as well as increased cultural exchange. Alps Shipping company and Gaulbert Erbauer are expected to have a massive increase in valuation. Alps shipping, which is the preferred shipping specialists in Europe is expected to increase revenues to 1.3bn Marks and Gaulbert Erbauer, who owns a portion of toll revenue, is expected to produce a revenue of 1.093bn Marks. Both companies have gotten the attention of Otto Handel - who has expressed the desire to increase their acquisition portfolio.

Neue Energie LP is planning to create a new powerplant that would be able to produce electricity for all of Landersvich at lower prices; the plant is still being designed, however, Neue Energie has secured a 1.2bn Mark loan from HLR do start the project.

HLR has announced plans to create a new HQ. The 2bn Mark building will be the most sophisticated structure in Landersvich, and perhaps Europe. Holding 15,000 personnel and the HQs of all of HLR's subsidies.

Chief Economists in Landersvich predict continued growth around the 5% mark and potentially higher thanks to the growth of new industries. They have also noted that thanks to the decrease in interest rates around Europe, the Landersvichian Mark may quickly become Europes strongest currency with low inflation and strong organic growth supporting its valuation. With the Landersvichina Mark appreciating in value, the other powers in Europe exporting to Landersvich will see increased volume in products sold; the major winners will be Hull and Alicia with exports exponentially increasing. Landersvich, which has a mostly service-based economy, will not feel adverse effects due to the lower demand for domestic products. This has also allowed for Landersvichian companies to profit more - due to lower costs.


Image


Military Breakthrough


The Landersvichian Imperial Military has had several technological breakthroughs - thanks to their partnership with Laitz Waffen, HLR and Vortex Systems. The Kaiser has stated that he does not plan on increasing the size of the military; that being said, his goal is to create one of the most advanced militaries in the world. The doubling of the military budget about a year ago has allowed for a massive increase in the effectiveness of the Imperial Military - these benefits will help Europe and the AEP in their goals of strengthening their diplomatic, economic, and strategic positions.

African Economic Development


Landersvichian Companies have started to open more facilities in the AEP. Laitz Waffen, who produces advanced weapon systems will continue to expand their Algiers operations while Gaulbert Erbauer, Neue Energie LP, and HLR will build regional HQs in Igbo and Mbale. Kaiser Nicholas XII has announced that he is dedicated to the development of Africa and the nations within the continent. Otto Handel will also be visiting Mbale to oversee construction efforts in the nation.

HLR Press Releases have also stated that the comments made in a recent article about African Neo-Colonialism are false; "We have a vision for the African Continent, that much is true, we hope to see our allies prosper and develop along with the rest of us; that includes Mbale, Algiers, Igbo and whoever else desires to secure a bright and lucrative future." stated Adolf von Busch, a publicist of HLR.

New Amsterdam: Not very powerful. Slightly better economy. Good potential for being annexed, in the name of reunifying Dutch West Africa against the Europeans.

Sahara Federation: Maybe we'll import sand one day.

Niagara Union: Communist, instant downside. They beat up Texas and outlawed slavery. Overall, relations could be better.

American Fed: Economic power. Good potential business partner.

Greater Netherlands: FUCK THE DUTCH FUCK THE DUTCH FUCK THE DUTCH

Pavlovsk: One of the largest and most powerful countries on Earth. We could do good business together.

Ghabar Public Dispatch

Ghabar on the World


It is no news to anyone that Samarra, the ghost of the nation that preceded Ghabar, was agressive to many that could have been friends. The nation of Ghabar wishes to undo such wrongs, and so this decree of foreign relations has been written.

To the neighboring nations of Pavlovsk and Yahel, Ghabar wishes to intently work closely with them, as trade between us would be very valuable. Any other nation is prompted to come to us for the purposes of trade, as Ghabar supports a thriving oil industry, as well as numerous other businesses ranging from textiles to exotic plants, to arms manufacturing. Nations are also prompted to inquire with Ghabarese ambassadors on other potential businesses of various manners. In terms of the country as trade routes, while proper documentation will be expected to go through our land, our aim is to ease the trade, and as such checkpoints will be well guarded but aimed to simplify trade traffic. Those wishing to visit Ghabar as tourists are encouraged to do so, as we begin to work towards a more welcoming environment. However let it be known that The Ghabar Confederation will not tolerate aggression towards our trade vessels, or our nation. We have inherited the military might of Samarra, and are prepared to utilize it should the need arise to protect our business interests. For the benefit of all our wallets, we pray this will not need to occur.

      Eric McCarthy declared a national hero • Patriotism at an all time high; racial tensions flare • Tech sector on the West Coast to see stable growth


      Eliseo Arias Arrested in the Bahamas
      Eliseo Arias, born 1/2/1969, was known in his hometown of Salina Cruza to be a boy genius, skipping years in school and having IQ tests that rank far higher than most adults. By the age of 7, Eliseo could already speak English, Spanish and German. He received various distinctions, awards and many people claimed his potential was endless.

      However, in the summer of 1985, when Eliseo was 16, he started acting differently. Schoolmates, teachers and his own parents say the change was obvious and sudden. Eliseo, while retaining and maybe even expanding his intellect, started falling in with drug cartel members. It's important to note that the cartels had real control over Salina Cruz in the 80s. Arias specifically befriended Santiago Alarcón, son of Cartel Leader Samuel Alarcón. Alarcón ran the relatively small scale but efficient cartel known as Los Defensores del Infierno, commonly known as just Los Defensores.

      Thanks to Arias' friendship with Alarcón and his ability to enhance the power of the cartel with his well thought out plans and solutions, Arias rose through the cartel ranks fast, becoming a person favourite of Samuel Alarcón.

      Arias continued his schooling despite Cartel activities and wrote in his journals of using the money he'd made from the Cartel to study in Texas of Britannia, however, when Tolucan Federal Police busted Los Defensores in 1987, Arias was forced to go on the run, his hopeful future washed away.

      Police suspect that Arias then fled to Barnetia, a place where he would be free from Tolucan justice. From there, he began preparations for his own drug operations, hoping to export primarily to Texas and the UPS.

      By 1990, the then 21-year-old Arias had become a major player in the American Drug Scene. He was renowned for his ability to make large profits without resorting to violence, at least to the same extant of other cartels. Arias' intelligence served him well in the drug trade, he's said. It allowed him to make efficient, calculated and profitable decisions while never seeming to get caught, despite both Tolucan and Barnetian authorities trying their hardest.

      They would have caught me back in '89 and '90 if Toluca and Barnetia worked together to catch me. The clues were all there. It's sheer incompetency from the law enforcement.
      Arias quipped after his arrest.

      Through out 1991 - 1993, Arias has capitalised on the chaos in Barnetia, Toluca and basically the entire continent. Arias has said that he used the various American, Santa Rosan and Niagaran conquests to conduct his operations, reaping in huge profits.

      This year, Arias planned to expand his operations into Europe and Asia, following the death of major Tolucan cartels after the American takeover.

      And that's exactly what lead to his arrest.

      Arias planned to meet with dealers in Europe later this month. He was seen boarding a private plane in the Bahamas, something he'd done many times before, he's said. The guard who apprehended him said he recognised him from a crime documentary he'd watched on television.

      Currently, Eliseo Arias is being held in Santo Domingo to appear for trial, questioning and interrogation. We're all eager to see this druglord put to rest.

Economic Report

Yemen Overhaul: Desk of Graul Ekeenis

September 10, 1993



Head of economic affairs has approved a loan of 35 (Thirty-Five) billion dollars from the nation of Pavlovsk. Funds are to be used to cover the costs of a total infrastructural overhaul of Yahels Yemen region. The area has faced massive underdevelopment throughout its time while not under our jurisdiction. The governments plan is to bring the region up to national standards to stimulate its economy. Currently, Yemen remains as one of our poorest and least profitable regions. The mass movement of Mbale immigrants through the region has sparked discussion which lead to the execution of this plan. Breakdown of fund diversion as follows.

20 (Twenty) billion of the Pavlovsk loan is directed to cover the costs of paving 5 (Five) thousand miles of new road to assist in the movement of materials, resources, and population through the region. This new road MUST connect to the currently existing Oman roadway to allow for easy access to developed areas such as the UAE and Qatar. This change is expected to revolutionize Yemen by its self, bringing new activity through the region and jumpstarting its natural development.

10 (Ten) billion of the loan is directed towards general infrastructure construction such as powerlines, waterlines, telephone lines, sewage systems, etcetera. This is expected to lead to a massive rise in local quality of life. With Yemen remaining as the poorest region in Yahel, the new access to resources is expected to create a massive upwards trend for the entire region.

5 (Five) billion of the loan is directed towards optimizing already existing infrastructure in Yahel that connects the nation to its neighbours. The goal is to make Yahel the central hub of commerce throughout the middle east. Prioritized nations for these new improvements are Salamut and Oghuz due to their connections to the nation through Glascom.

      Kalandra officially renounces all Pacifican claims • Denver crime rates at an all time low • Demand for anime increases in Western States


      Hundreds of Arrests made following intel from Eliseo Arias
      Following Eliseo Arias' arrest on the 6th earlier this month, Arias' subsequent interrogation and questioning brought forth thousands of words of information, regarding Arias' personal life, the American Drug Scene, related crimes and Arias' interactions with other prominent druglords and dealers. Federal Police Commissioner, Roy Bush, had this to say about Arias' interrogation.

      We had in the room for over 30 hours. He was calm, hauntingly calm for a man who could be facing an execution. On top of that, he just kept talking. Every second, something new. Something I realised about Arias when we were interrogating him was the fact that he's not a normal person. He's charismatic, calculated and charming. You could scarcely tell that this was the man that ordered heinous crimes to meet his bottom line ... I think Arias had accepted his fate. He gave up mounds of valuable information knowing full well the repercussions from law enforcement and his old drug buddies.


      Over 150 prominent arrests have been made thanks to Arias' info. The Governor of Carib, Fernando Sáenz, has said he'll grant Arias one, reasonable request for his efforts. In the Governors words, "He's been instrumental to reducing crime in Carib and Toluca. He deserves some kind of reward."

      Many are criticising Sáenz's decision but the Governor is remaining firm.

      SALES TAXES GO UP

      Image

      A large sales tax increase has been announced for all manufactured products. the current 5% tax is being increased to 50% this means if a product cost 100 yuan before taxes it will now cost 150 yuan after taxes. The new taxes will help pay for improved education, parks, and law enforcement.
      Anyone found rioting over the tax increase will result in a 2 months in a labor camp. the tax increase was initiated by a bill put forward by the Chairman and passed by a large majority by the Poliburo.

October 3, 1993

Constitutional restoration referendum passes
Voters overwhelmingly approved the restoration of the Constitution of 1883

SANTA ROSA - A referendum called by Prime Minister Antonio Lardesi on whether or not the Constitution of Santa Rosa should be restored took place yesterday. After the votes were tallied overnight, the electorate voted 87.4% in favor of restoring the Constitution.

The Constitution was "suspended" in 1991 after General Paul Oppenheimer and the military overthrew President Tito Perez. Oppenheimer was then proclaimed President extra-constitutionally. Oppenheimer still remains President.

Following the results of the referendum, Lardesi stated that the full restoration of the Constitution will take place throughout the first half of next year. The first round of presidential elections will take place on April 20, 1994. Oppenheimer has declined to run.

The Government Junta, which initially opposed the referendum, has not made a comment on the results.

      Pontifical Guard Commissions International Regiments

      October 3rd, 1993

      Image

      Recognizing that Catholicism is a global faith, the Mbale Catholic Church has allowed the formation of international Pontifical Guard regiments from believers all over the world. Upon passing basic training, new members of the Pontifical Guard will be granted Mbale citizenship (dual citizenship is permitted) and if they were prior armed forces members in their home nation, they will be allowed to retain their previous rank. The new initiative has seen the formation of the 1st Santa Rosan Holy Rifle Regiment composed of 2,000 Santa Rosans of African Descent. They are led by Guard Captain Alfonso Iweobiegbulam, a veteran of the Santa Rosan Army.

      Kalandran, Oghuz, Yaheli, Kaaplandian, Igbo, and Nyalan Regiments are currently being populated by volunteers, though their numbers are insufficient to form a proper Regiment. Guard Commander Mitiku has stated that the greatest challenge facing the project has been the sheer amount of applicants that require extensive Swahili and Simplified Dutch education.

      We have brave followers all over the world who wish to die serving under the banner of Crystumbo, but if they wish to be of any use then they must be able to communicate with us. The Church has spent over two million guilders getting the Santa Rosans up to speed. If we wish to mobilize an international force we will require innovative and cost effective language teaching techniques. In the meantime, we urge foreign volunteers to study Simplified Dutch or Swahili at their local churches prior to enlistment.

Great Sultan,

I have prepared an overview of your puppets.
Jall is loyal, we can sell his ministate off to Yahel to curry favor. The Afghan we can't touch, and while I have my suspicions of Lysenko, he is foppish and more concerned with the farming industry then ruling. Our main concern is Shiqlorab. She preaches self-determination to her people, assumably from us. We need to keep a keen eye out Sultan.

All the Best,
Kassan Ho Meowdafi

Men's International League of Football

Your nation is invited to compete in the 1994 football World Cup!

October 28, 1993

Details on the competition:

Location- For the 1994 competition, it will be hosted in Yangaea, the nation in which the MILF offices reside. The games will be played in three stadiums, labeled below:
A. Auckland Arena
B. Memorial Stadium in Christchurch
C. Capital Stadium in Xate
Image
Tournament format- The format of the tournament will depend on the number of times that accept their invitation. Most likely, it will be a standard single elimination bracket, with the final game being played in Capital Stadium.


OOC: Here is how the competition will work. Anyone can accept this invitation, and should write in the #events_ic channel if they choose to do so. Once you have accepted your invitation, go to #spam and tag me. Then type "/roll 11d10" to find the total skill of your team. Each number will be the skill of one of your starting players, so feel free to pick any of the numbers and RP as that player.
i.e. if I got "10+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5=60" 60 will be my total team skill and 10 would be my best player.
Games will go like this: two teams will /roll d(total team skill). Whoever has the highest number wins the game. Games will begin late 1993 to early 1994.
