November 1, 1993

President Wengu dead, Party Leader Nikolai Varbanov to assume Presidency.

President Wengu was declared dead today after a faulty gas line at his Vinhinese estate exploded, destroying the entire property. The Asterian Government is currently not looking for reimbursement from the Vinhinese government. While citizens of Asteria mourn his loss, the ADK has been swift and emotionless in its replacement of the president. Acting President Nikolai Varbanov, and Party Leader of the ADK, will be sworn into office later today at 5:30 PM. The decision was unanimously decided by the Executive Council of the ADK. While some citizens are outraged at the fact that the government has not yet released a motion for the mourning of President Wengu, others have rejoiced that the charismatic Varbanov has taken office. We can only wait and see what happens next. We here at The Athens News mourn the late President's loss deeply, and we give condolences to the family.

EC Dispatch on the energy production clause in the EC-Landersvich Trade Agreement

Wishing to clarify the contents of the second Landersvich-EC bilateral trade agreement with regards to energy production, the EC exercises it's right to call an Imperial Diet under the first EC-Landersvich agreement and does so. King Maximillian expects this deal to go smoothly and hopes Landersvich will co-operate on this pressing issue. He will personally lead the Hulmian delegation, with Mariano Gallo leading that of Hulm's dearest ally, Alicia. The specter of a return to an era of frosty relations between the EC and Landersvich hangs in the air.

Hulmian Energy Under Threat From Landersvich?

The EC and Landersvich are set to meet at Vienna
To discuss the contents of the second EC-Landersvich trade agreement. While Landersvich seems to claim that the agreement gives them the exclusive right to supply energy to the EC, this is hotly denied by all of the EC’s members. Hulm and Alicia maintain that the treaty only allows Landersvich to supply energy, and that it by no means gives them any exclusive right to its supply. The Vienna Diet May yet prove to be a pivotal point in history.

Amid Growing Concerns Over the Dominance of Some Businesses in Hulm
The Reichstag has announced that the passage of Bill 1038, the so-called “Bill on the Monopoly Question”. As per the passage of this bill, any company with more than 40% market share in any will be subject to an extensive revue of the effects of the company’s market power on the average consumer. Criticism of the bill has ranged from people calling it “too weak” and saying it does “nothing to curb big business” to people criticizing the bill for being anti-market, however it has been seen by most as a good compromise between the two extremes. It’s passage seems to have been influenced by the recent EC energy dispute.

With the technology market seeing no sign of slowwing
The King has, by passage of a royal decree, decreased all taxes on income made from investments into technology startups by 15%. Our glorious King believes that Hulm has the intellectual potential to be the foremost technological market in the world, with the rise of companies like Brine being an stunning example.

Brine has announced it’s new Rhenum CPU architecture
Based on its own research and the fruits borne by the Joint CPU Project. While critics are doubtful that it can hit the speeds achieved by CMTC, the new architecture has brought the company back up to the same playing field. Brine has announced that the first line of PCs equipped with the Rhenum architecture will be released in Q1 of 1994.

The Hulmian football team
Has formally been accepted into the world-famous MILF football championship. It’s considered a favorite by many, and has already accepted a sponsorship offer from the Wohlstadbank Von Hulm. The Bank has also purchased extensive amounts of TV advertisements that will air during the broadcast of the games. However, Königwagen, which has reported a large increase in sales this quarter, takes the cake for the best advertisement strategy, as the manufacturer has already bought rights to have its ads displayed on the pitch. It has also been designated as the official car brand of the competition, much to the chagrin of its Dutch competitors.

      Songjiang F-16 Pilot in Hot Water Over Noodles

      Image

      Songjiang Republican Air-force Pilot Lt. Su Tai has reputedly been placed on report for using military assets to smuggle food from Hong Kong into the Songjiang Mainland without paying the extra sales taxes. According to prosecutors they have evidence that the pilot has made at least 12 trips transporting at least 10 boxes of noodles at a time were he then gave them to his cousin who sold them at his noodle shop at lower prices than other noodle shops could afford.
      Authorities claim they were tipped off after a photo of Lt. Su Tai's plane surfaced with a box of noodles in the cockpit window, initially it was a safety investigation but it was soon discovered that the pilot was carrying more noodles per trip than he could possibly need for himself.
      The exact ammount of noodles he smuggled into Songjiang without paying proper taxes is unknown at this point and Lt. Su Tai is still on active duty pending completion of his investigation. Military officials state he will likely be forced to pay the back taxes, and have his flight status suspended for 6 months as punishment but no official criminal charges will be pursued. Non military authorities do not seem to be happy with this stating he should be made an example of.

As many know, Yahel has seen a large increase in immigration. By boasting its improved quality of life and offering refuge for those less fortunate from nations like Mbale, Yahel has attracted the attention of wide-eyed optimistic men and women from across the globe. While the government has been cracking down on infrastructure and living standards for these people, what has come of the education system? Yahel's original education system was fairly limited. For the population it supported, it may have not been the best, but it worked. Sadly, this is no longer the case. Reports show that classrooms are holding up to 30 students over their limit just in an attempt to keep up with the constant and ever-growing demand. Private Education has seen an enormous boom, but for those newly entering Yahel, paying just isn't an option.

We pushed the minister of education for answers and he gave us this: "The future is now and we must embrace it with open arms! Yes, our system is currently lacking, but that's to be expected. Overall, Yahel is still classified as a third world nation... But this won't stop us! We have connections, we have allies! We have contacted officials in Songjiang and we will be seeing a much-needed improvement to education very soon my friend. As we speak, teachers, educated professionals are heading over in our time of need to provide this much-needed knowledge to our population. Don't worry, we have the peoples interests in our minds, in our hearts and in our souls."

Thousands of Songjiang teachers of Confucianism are headed over to Yahel to tackle this educational crisis. It is expected that this will take a large load of stress off the system, but not enough. The government has passed a bill that will provide teaching jobs a 3% income tax cut and free dental benefits to incentivize those in the education system to take a role in the system once they are finished. For those across Yahel, all the way from Israel to Oman, expect to see the pages of a textbook and the guiding voice of a teacher very soon.
Whoops. Ehhehheh !! Didn't know this was on.... Eugh heugh FUUUCCK. What's poppiiIING-uh AAUUGHHH-EUGH, huhuh. Whooooaaaa it's lit in heere, huh? sh-heugh-heugh. mmmMMMMwaaahhh fuUUUCKK IT'S HOT AS FUCK IN HERE, take the hoodie off, nah keep it on that's cute as fuuuuuuuu . Nah but for real: Shoutout.

    A few minutes ago, Frijestad International Airport was bombed and shot up by members of the notorious Populist Party. According to the one suspect who was captured alive, they were attempting to murder Stiaan Kotze, a core member of the Minority Advancement Movement, and a Tumbu white. Police estimates say that between 10-30 people were injured, and 4 confirmed dead. Stiaan Kotze survived the attack, however, he is in critical condition, his back being filled with shrapnel from the bomb. The weapons used in the attack were 1911 pistols, which, although illegal to have without a valid license, are easy to get illegally, as well as an improvised bomb, with nails in it, which flew out from the bomb and hit civilians, acting as shrapnel. The act was perpetrated by 5 men, one dead by suicide bombing, and another 3 killed by police. The last suspect was apprehended after failing to commit suicide. Mayor Joseph Sahana says that this is a sad day for all of Tumbuland, and wishes all victims of this attack his condolences.

The manufacturer is Bair Jolasnaro, the Alician clothing brand that will make all of the official jerseys and cleats for the players.

November 20, 1993

President Varbanov increases taxes on poor, institutes mandatory public work programs.

"The most difficult choices require the strongest wills.", said President Varbanov earlier in a speech this morning. Our wonderful leader loves all of us, but sometimes sacrifices have to be made for the betterment of the country. Therefore, our glorious leader has income taxes by 5-10% varying on the income of citizens, and it mainly affects the middle and lower class. We understand that while this may make our lives difficult, it will go in turn to fund the wonderful social services that our gracious leaders work hard to maintain for us. The elite remains to enjoy low taxes, as they are symbols of strength and prosperity for all Asterian citizens. Please contact your nearest District Office to find more details about what the tax increase may mean for you.
Image

The Government has also initiated what some economists are calling "Asteria's Five-Year Plan." Just as the citizens tithe to the government, the government must tithe to the citizens. Therefore, it is now mandatory for all homeless and extreme low-income citizens to work on public works projects, building anything from power stations to housing to infrastructure. Workers will receive temporary housing at designated District locations until they receive enough money to pay rent. Rumors have been spread at a salary up to $1,000, a life-changing amount for many of our citizens. We are glad to see that President Varbanov cares so much about our glorious country of Asteria. It is estimated that due to conscription of citizens into the government workforce that the economy and infrastructural capacity of Asteria will jump leaps and bounds. We can only hope to see what new heights our nation amounts to.

      Local Militias integrated with glory, regulated mildly.

      Given the rise of local miltias causing a ruckus beyond Persian shores, the honorable Sheng Shicai regime has made use of these men and integrated them into the new Ikhwan militia. Originally founded to manage Indian lands, this militia is now being used across Persia. Bestowing upon those warlords that join the title of "Warriors for Allah", Sheng Shicai has claimed
      Our glorious army is on the path to power and glory! However, for their altercations on the Songjiangese and Pavlovski borders, their leaders will be fined for a better Persia.
      In practice, the soldier's salary will eventually recoup this, but for the past week raids have slowly calmed. The deal comes with access to Persia's Songjiangese arms stockpile and an amount of legitimacy, however it has greatly helped Persia regulate the tribes.

European Energy Issue


Since the creation of multiple agreements between Landersvich and the EC, relations have stayed relatively positive; however, individuals from Hulm would like to revise the previous deals. Some reports say there have been lawyers involved - but it is still unconfirmed. An Imperial European Diet, a forum created by the Kaiser, will be hearing the issue soon.

Out of the fall out from this deal, Landersvich could be looking at new trade deals with Hulm and Pavlovsk. The two nations, who are competing economically with each other and Landersvich, have recently been on "bad" terms; that being said, reports indicated the Kaiser sees an opportunity for friendship and economic growth. The prosperity that was brought to Europe, vanguard by Alicia and Landersvich, is not something that the Kaiser wants to see diminish.

HLR African Economic Pact Scandal


In recent hours, the APSIA Economic Council has asked HLR to hand-over nearly 50,000,000,000 Marks. The development shocked the large private organization - but the response was quick. HLR Mombasa representative Dufwem Weers commented: "We provide financial services to any clients that approach us. We are not a precinct, we are not an intelligence agency, nor any other government agency. It is unreasonable to expect HLR or its affiliates to conduct in-depth investigations on all its clients."

HLR Leading Counsel, Fredrich Weasel stated that "HLR conducts legal business with all clients - globally. Without a list of potential individuals and crimes committed, we cannot hand-over any funds. That being said, HLR will be launching a formal investigation into the claims made, if any such funds are found to be in the criminal client's account, and in their name, we will seize the assets." Fredrich also stated, "HLR does not have our clienteles cash on hand, we invest it into other nations and corporations, sometimes through many transactions - due to this, we cannot seize capital until we find it - which could take time due to the scope of the investigation."

In other news, HLR has become a council member of Hong Kong - this marks the first time a Western Company joins the Hong Kong Government.


Imperial Court and Family


Otto Handel, who is one of the wealthiest men on earth, has been declared a Reichsgrafen, or Imperial Count. The honor was placed on him yesterday night while at dinner with Kaiser Nicholas XII. The Mafia Islands and his position in Hong Kong will be considered his territory. After swearing vassalage to the Kaiser, Otto reportedly gifted Nicholas a gold - ruby ring as a token of appreciation.

The König comments on the Landersvich Energy Deal

With the recent instigation by Landersvich that it is Hulm which is responsible for the current energy issue, our great König has found it fit to issue a royal dispatch concerning the recent events.

Rger das Königreich, I have written this dispatch to answer the questions that no doubt plague your hearts and minds. As you all may know, in recent times a dispute between the EC and Landersvich has erupted, due to different interpretations of the treaty between our great organization and the realm of Landersvich. While I, as everyone, hope that we can reach an amicable agreement with Landersvich, the fact that the nation spreads falsehoods regarding the origin of this dispute troubles me deeply. While it is true I called for the imperial Diet to occur, I did this not only on behalf of our great Königreich, I did it on behalf of our Europeans Community. The idea that this fiasco is due to Hulm’s want to revise the treaty is demonstrably false, and the fact that Landersvichian newspapers continue to peddle this lie only sets back negotiations. The Diet will revolve around the clarification of the treaty, and the fact that Landersvich seems to claim it has had the right to a monopoly on energy in the EC is something that boggles the mind. I, as all do, hope for a quick resolution to the energy dispute, and I hope the Kaiser shares my point of view regarding the energy negotiations. Gott bewahre Hulm.”

The dispatch was met with praise on all sides of the political spectrum, with some of the most ardent Republicans coming out in favor of the King. Negotiatons regarding the energy fiasco are scheduled to happen as soon as possible, in the Landersvichian capital of Vienna.

    We have been appealing to all available support in our aims to remove the tyrannical regime ruling over the Texan people. Our work is beginning to pay off as we have just concluded a meeting with top Texan Army officials who are interested in our plans. If these men assist us in our coup we could have up to half the Texan Army at our disposal. Along with this the American Federation has shown interest in helping us. A group of various American Federation Military officers are en route to our compound at this moment. A report will be released as soon as this meeting is concluded.

HLR Press Release



Image


HLR Leading Counsel, Fredrich Weasel stated, as of this morning, "The Economic Council's investigation into the AEP and HLR are not accurate. The investigation seems to be headed by Ibrahim Al-Benus the Yaheli Chairman of the Economic Council; after the stunt, the Yaheli government pulled with a bio-hazard freighter, we do not believe the investigation is sound. The leading figures behind the investigation seem to have a prior motive to disliking HLR and the Landersvichian government - this is evident from their perpetration of illegal acts. That being said, after intense investigation, HLR has found a group of 28 individuals who have committed horrible crimes, profited, invested with HLR, and who are the current owners of the capital. These are high-profile criminals - with their balances totaling 7.83bn Marks. The funds have been seized and the accounts were frozen. The proper AEP authorities have been notified about the men, their crimes, and their location; It is up to the nation in the AEP to take action to find the criminals - this will solve the issue. HLR will be placing the funds in the hands of the AEP governments - these funds will be used to help develop the economies of the AEP and build proper legal infrastructure to prevent more scenarios like this."

- IMPORTANT -

Investigations are still underway

      APSIA Economic Council Begins Full Scale Investigation Against HLR

      Shortly after the Landersvich Conglomerate, HLR, diverted funds from a handful of known international criminals and handed them over to the AEP (of which every leader and most top ranking officials are also on the APSIAEC dossier), the economic council initiated a full scale investigation into HLR. Every dollar of every client will be reviewed by the APSIA organization, along with every single staffer and contractor in order to verify if the company is willingly cooperating with criminal elements. Several HLR executives have already been subpoena'd by the APSIA International Court, along with dozens of retired government officials from the Igbo Republic and Mbale.

      HLR has proven to be highly resistant to cooperation with the APSIA Organization and has chosen to try to shuffle funds to avoid obeying its orders. The ordeal with the random Yaheli merchants is irrelevant. The Economic Council is comprised of dozens of nations, the majority of which greenlit the original criminal banking and asset stashing investigation. Our investigation is sound and overseen by all founding members of the APSIA Organization. HLR is certainly not being singled out, our agents are currently building a case against several other prominent financial institutions.

As the fishing industry gradualy upscales, people are left with a nagging question: "What the hell is up with these boats?".

Commercial fishing has seen much growth since 1990, but this kind of growth hasn't come without its own problems. One visit to a local dock and you will see cutting edge top of the line fishing vessels, alongside cobbled together junker boats. The kicker, they will be working for the same company. No laws have been put into place regulating how modern a commercial fishing vessel must be, so many fishers joining a new team, or organized company, simply just keep their old out of date ships. Some companies have even offered higher wages for those who bring their own boats along with them (Labelled BYOB, bring your own boat). The people are split on this issue. Some say this is due to the lack of laws governing the market, while others chalk it up to economic inequality between the classes. The Yaheli fishing union has stated that it will be looking to the international market to secure modern vessels to supply to the people and modernize the scene.

      Sadness at an all time high • Popular Mexico DJ murdered • Eliseo Arias to be executed "sometime in 1994"


      Regional Congress of Carib passes "Drug Act of 1993"
      In a controversial move, Administrator Sáenz of Carib pushed through the "Drug Act of 1993" through the Caribbean Regional Congress. While the decision was fairly divisive, Sáenz and his team are adamant about the positive effects this Act will bring to the Caribbean.

      The Drug Act of 1993 officially legalises marijuana and unofficially promotes the growth of the Caribbean's marijuana industry. To be more specific about what this means for the average citizen, any citizen over the age of 17 may possess any quantity of cannabis ("within reason" as taken from the Regional Congress' official report) and any citizen older than 18 can apply for a Cannabis License, which allows them to grow marijuana in their own homes or as a business venture.

      In addition to the legalisation of marijuana, forms of ecstasy were legalised though only for possession, meaning those manufacturing ecstasy will receive a fine or possibly jail time, depending on the size of the operation.

      Sáenz has come under fire for wanting to turn Carib into, in the words of Political Rival Lucas de la Cavallería, "A drug-addled, lazy, crime ridden state ... If we're considering what else Sáenz has said about his vision for Carib, our state is truly doomed."

    I am glad to announce that our meeting with American Federation military officers has produced positive results. The American Federation has agreed to send an initial force of 1,000 troops and slowly bolster the force over a period of time. This shall serve as a deterrent force to keep Niagara from interfering in the coup under fear of starting a war with the American Federation. Along with this, we have secured plans with a few top Army staff that should grant us roughly 75% of the Army to assist in toppling the tyrannical regime. Robert Dixon's negligence of the post-war Texan Army will prove to be his downfall. These top army officials including the Chief and Assistant Chief of Army staff have agreed to help overthrow the communist regime in exchange for retaining power after the regime change. Their requests have been accepted.

    The coup will begin in the beginning months of 1994 and will comprise of Texan Army and TLA rebels surrounding and seizing the Presidential Compound in Dallas. Meanwhile a separate force of Texan Army troops will seize the congressional building in Dallas. The next few days will be spent clearing the city of Communist Resistance. Plans to secure the rest of the country will be made once Dallas is secured.

    -Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Torres, Commanding Officer of TRA Communications.

Economic growth through the Caribbean, Queen Mary, and More!


After the recent visit from Queen Mary and the first ever Governor race going on in the Caribbean the economy has been awoken! Sugar and Coffee farming have continued to rise over the years but with the recent publicity other markets have been awakened. The cruise line Viver Bien which operates 3 ships have announced a 160% jump in bookings for the coming months. With the new money they plan on opening two more ships. One will be focused in the Caribbean while the Second will port in the Alician homeland, travel to the Alician resorts in Landersvich, and possibly tour the islands of Asteria. Bair Jolasnaro has also began construction of a new store in Puerto Rico. The store will be staffed and operating by February 20th. Congresswomen Tejador has recently dropped to 75% in the polls and Governor Espina has risen to 25% after recent economic gains. Tejador is still holding her comfortable lead.


Computech has announced the details to their new game changing CPU will be officially released February 16th! The company is expected to make history with such a move and sales are expected to skyrocket after their R&D teams were successful with such a project. We can only grow in excitement as we wait on Lisbon!
Camino Nuevo has announced they will be releasing two new drugs come mid January. The first being called BullMad, BullMad is set to give all day lasting energy without the side effects of energy drinks. The next drug will be only prescribed by Docters called Alagone. Alagone is marketed as a pain reliever and Allergy combat drug.


Queen Mary and Mr.Harrison McCarthy have been married a month and rumors have already been speculating. Many people believe the Queen may already be pregnant but the Palace has stayed silent on the matter. The palace did announced coming soon a coronation would be set to officially make Mr.McCarthy an official Prince of Alicia. Current polls show the population in favor of this at roughly 65% but maybe a royal baby can help with that?


Recent allegations from the APSIA economic council have stated HLR has been harboring the money for warlords, corrupt officials, terrorist and human rights abusers. Although the majority of Europe have kept quite on such allegations President Cortez stated the following while she was stopped leaving lunch with Secretary Gallo.
Alicia is a member of the Economic council and as a member we have a duty to look into such allegations. If any financial organization or any organization for that matter is holding money for or doing anything to help benefit convicted terrorist, warlords, and people who abuse human rights then they should be held accountable. So with that being said Secretary Gallo and I agree whatever the economic council concludes with we will support.

A reporter asked the question "If HLR is convicted and they refuse to cooperate will Alicia cut ties?"
President Cortez responded with
It would be quite difficult to cut ties immediately but yes HLR would be brought to the negotiating table and changes would be made. Alicia will not be involved with corporations who support such ideals.

Economic Councils Investigation into HLR


An HLR press release has updated the public, and the economic council, on their stance. The release indicates that the company, through private investigations, have found more funds and clients who are to be considered undesirable. The assets of the clientele have been frozen and the funds available seized. The amount of liquid assets seized is equivalent to 4.2bn Marks. Other assets, which equate to 42bn are tied up in bonds and funds on the ILE and ISEx; with a mean age of maturity of 15 years. HLRs leading council has announced the creation of the International Anti-Terrorism Fund (IATF). The funds will be managed by HLR and will be available to the APSIA. The fund will start with the 4.2bn marks seized, and the 42bn marks (present value) when the maturity date is reached. The fund will grow at the rate of the growth on the ILE - almost like a retirement account. Other nations may contribute to the fund - with the main focus of eliminating terrorist activities.

HLR council also stated that, "We are willing to work with the APSIA on the investigation pertaining to HLR - since no law has been broken, there is nothing HLR is concerned about; that being said, with hundreds of trillions of dollars in transactions a year, the investigation will take up a majority of the Economic councils time and resources for the coming years. Perhaps it would be more beneficial to solve the issue of terrorism - but what do I know." Fred Weasel also stated that "HLR is willing to help create a lasting solution to the issue - however, the company will not be punished for crimes it has not committed; we also ask, that at the conclusion of the investigation, the APSIA apologize for libel against HLR - which has caused PR and image issues."

      ​Ministry of Security releases crime statistics for 1992-1993

      Ministry of Security building in Chekhov

      The Ministry of Security has released a report detailing crime within Pavlovsk, along with a detailed list of how individual cities within the nation rank in terms of safety. The republic with the biggest decrease in crime has been Rybinsk, and the one with the largest increase has been the Ukrainian FR (likely due to the extension of the republic's borders in the recent past). Overall, minor misdemeanor have decreased across the nation. This is thought to be in large part due to the sharp decrease in restrictions on political speech and action, leading to far less arrests tied to political issues. However, major felonies such as murder and grand theft have seen an increase overall. The Ministry of Security states in the report that major felonies have seen an increased particularly related to organized crime.

      Almaty was ranked as the most dangerous large city in Pavlovsk to live in, partially due to activity from Persian non-state militias active near the area. However, the data does not take the recent decrease in Persian militia activity into account. Crime experts speculate that Vladivostok to be the most dangerous city within Pavlovsk. The safest city in Pavlovsk according to the report is Daugava, with Helsinki and Rykovograd coming in close behind. Chekhov ranks in the 73rd percentile (with 100 being the safest).

Declaration of the "Republic of North Barnetia"


It is on this sad day, the 1st of January, 1994, that Northern Barnetia leaves the Federation as a military occupation state.

While the troop count will be lowered, a certain number of undetermined soldiers be kept there to ensure peace until stability is achieved.

Adrián Curbelo will take office as President until 1995, under the United Democratic Party. Adrián Curbelo's cabinet will be appointed by himself and President Eric McCarthy of the American Federation until 1995.

The Federation will maintain extensive military, economic and cultural ties with North Barnetia.

Under the Federation, millions of Barnetians came out of poverty, achieved food security and had access to quality education for the first time in their entire lives. We won't let this progress stop.

      Hong Kong Bank and Shanghai Bank Merge To Become The Hong-Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation

      Image

      The Politburo of Songjiang and the Corporate Council of Hong-Kong approved the massive merger of The Bank of Hong Kong and The Central Bank of Shanghai. This will give the Hong-Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation the ability to print money in both Songjiang and in Hong-Kong as the The Central Bank of Shanghai served as the mint for Songjiang.
      The HSBC has announced along with this that changes in Songjiang and Hong Kong currency will be following this merger and a likely union of currency will take place making trade between the mainland and Hong-Kong easier.
      Along with this merger the HSBC has announced opening 100 new branches across Yahel over the next 3 months. Efforts to do the same in Pavlovsk are still ongoing.
