The Triumvirate toasted one another as they received word from Genes that Lord Yonas had accepted the offer for the Nattian throne, confident in securing for them a monarch who they could mold and shape to their liking. As far as Inha and Raita were concerned the new king would be little more than an ornamental stamp, while Janhunen at least imagined that the monarchy could be a shaped into a strong stabilizing force for Nattian politics and society.

Koski was tasked with planning for the arrival of the monarch to be, while Admiral Harjula was to continue serving in his role as regent until the monarch to be arrived in the country proper. It was noted by Vanhalato that Admiral Harjula had by now served as long as Regent of Nattia as Pekkarinen had over the short lived republic.

The Marajarbian Federation would continue to send aid to the Nattian people. This aid included both economic and humanitarian aid as the Marajarbian Construction and Shipping Group would work on building new homes for not only worker settlements, but also civilians. New power grids were also being established to help bring the benefits of electricity to the homes of the people.

Meanwhile, the Marajarbian Construction and Shipping Group, using its presence in both Nattia and the Marajarbian colonies of East and West Mystery Realms, hiring Mystery Realmsians from both colonies to work in Nattia’s reconstruction.

The arrival of Arakhkharan contractors and heavy equipment to the port city of Foutila would be rather uneventful.

In order to facilitate the construction efforts, an Arakhkharan state owned company would be established as the legal entity responsible for hiring Nattian workers and skilled laborers - this company was to be called Foutila-Novalira Holdings - which was to organize the purchase of the Foutila port authority, among other things.

It would also see to the recruitment of Nattian labor, through a variety of incentives - and all according to the dictates put forth by the Ministry of Public Works - and to the purchase of Nattian pine.

In the meantime, floating harbors would relocate - moving closer to the shore, until eventually, they could be utilized for the mass unloading of cargo.

Among the equipment brought, was numerous cranes, excavators, forklifts, and a variety of other equipment would be unloaded and brought onto the makeshift harbor - where it could then be used to begin the reconstruction of the port proper.
The first thing that must be done, of course, is to assess the damage - to see if anything existing could be used to aid in reconstruction. Luckily, much of the cement base of the pre-existing harbor was relatively undamaged - it would require only the construction of warehouses, repairing drydocks, locks, cranes, and an assortment of other equipment.
In the meantime, a staging site would be established around the floating mobile harbors - a place to simply unload cargo, and to coordinate the creation of worker housing.
All of this effort would be conducted by a member of the lower nobility - Baroness Iris, daughter of Elara - subsequently, the administrator of Foutila-Novalira Holdings.
She was known as a woman who had orchestrated the rapid construction of several cities in Arakhkhar, following the rather brutal colonial occupation of the territory which had put her in power - playing a large role in the construction of Solkhar and Novalira, and having heavily aided in the rapid industrialization of the formerly tribal natives. She was well known for her diplomatic personality that would betray the ruthless conduct with which she pushed workers under her - in many ways, similar to the Minister of Public Works.

There was a sense of relief growing in the country as the reconstruction efforts of the Provisional Council and the Triumvirate continued to press forward. There had been many who had feared that the new government would not be able to hold itself together. Leo Pekkarinen himself had only managed to hold onto power for less than a week and the civil war had been a flash point. Yet despite these fears, the new government held.

With Vuorela’s overseeing of the building projects, granting approvals over steady progress in the countryside, much to the protest of many in the cities, nonetheless she pressed on. The logic of her decision however started to show itself. Villages and towns of central Nattia proved far quicker to rebuilt, the smaller houses, simpler designs and fewer detangling or removal of preexisting materials or rubble.

Meanwhile the Ministry of the Treasury, formed under the command of Jaakko Nurminen took to managing the finical foreign aid that was arriving in Nattia, rapidly expanding the national treasury that had only weeks earlier been left empty by the expenses of conflict. At the direction of Janhunen, a Sovereign Wealth Fund was established in order to serve as a protection against the dangers of economics and instability, as well, in secret, against the corruption of his fellow members of the Triumvirate. While Janhunen himself wasn’t entirely clean, having taken some of the bribes from the Genoise, he saw the dangers in being too greedy, and thus looked to limit it amongst the lower ranks of the reforming government.

In Otsopaa, perhaps ironically, many saw business growing better than things had been before the civil war, as the fishermen found the season growing more and more profitable, though admittedly the overall catch was roughly only three quarters of what the previous year— but caught by only a third of the fishing vessels, resulting in a few growing much wealthier, rapidly.

Meanwhile fishermen from other cities found themselves abandoning the sea instead for the forests and the construction site. As the many projects called on laborers and for the use of Nattian pines, many streamed to these fields to be construction workers or lumberjacks, predominantly with the Marajarbiana, Gonswanzans and Arakhkarans, though there were a few, like Yrjö Rantanen who strived to promoted his own local lumber company— Rantanen Lumber Co. — in northwestern Nattia.

Otsopaa, Nattia

As the reconstruction continued, the matter of reformation and restoration also pressed on. That the Provisional Council, and the Triumvirate, despite Vanhalato’s protests, which grew milder and milder by the day, had settled on Lord Yonas Hollande had been settled, and a team of royalist experts had been dispatched to Genes in order to prepare the young man for the start of his reign upon his arrival in Nattia.

This lead to several debates. The first the question of the name of their new king-elect. Yonas was a foreign sounding name and thus it was decided it would not do. The Bentheim-Steinfurt Dynasty had been of German stock and had kept their Germanic names through their century or so of rule with the likes of names Meinrad, Otto and Carl. It was decided that a new, Nattian, name was best. A list was sent to the king-elect to decide on the matter:

  • Haako
  • Heikkar
  • Hjalmar


Tutors too, in the form of Miikka Tuomioja and Isko Oksanen, were sent to teach the king-elect the Nattian language, at least the basics—as Inha and Raita found themselves comforted that the young monarch would not be able to make fast communications with others in Nattia, and thus unable to make friends or allies around him. Janhunen too had selected Oksanen, to teach the king-elect of history and culture, as a spy to keep an eye on this invited monarch.

Meanwhile the Treasury in tandem with the Royal Mint and National Bank of Nattia worked together to stabilize the currency. The pre-coup dollars were still in wide circulation but was deemed too reminiscent of the pass, while the republican currency that had been deemed worse less the moment Pekkarinen had died. The Mint thus began systematically destroying both, in favor of brand new currency, the aptly named uusi. Designed by Aake Leino, the new money can in both coins and notes— 10 cents, 50 cents, 1 uusi, 2 uusi, 3uusi coins; 5 uusi, 10 uusi, 20 uusi notes— and was made to feature the new king, a new crown and feature a map of Nattia— which at the insistence of Vuorela depicted Otsopaa as the capital.

The selection of these new symbols were not done lightly, but indeed with great intention. Vuorela in particular has joined a subsection of the government who were pushing for Otsopaa to not simply be the provisional capital, but indeed the new permanent capital.




Vuorela, too looking at the proposals of Gonswanza and Pilzn, decided that she agreed with the move away from the bullet train idea instead for a more reasonable, cheaper more manageable style train system over her planned lines of railways.




Inha and Raita, while not wishing to have to fight wars, remained firm in their belief that the Nattian military needed to modernize and advance in its training and technology. Thus the Triumvirate strongly advised the Provisional Council to accept the Gonswanzan offers of equipment and the training of troops. The offers of ELT tanks and J-110 export fighters were accepted while Janhunen reviewed ideas of joining new alliances.

Even as reconstruction pushed on, the Gonswanzan representative also wished to open up the topic of deterrents. While Gonswanza was not at liberty to lend weapons, under new administration, it was important to at least have something to offer weight behind policy. A deterrent meant to stand against stronger states, should they decide to attack. Yet, the tradeoffs were simple. By joining the nuclear club, they would be (mostly) safe from attack. But it would cost them dearly to invest in their nuclear program, even more to maintain it. Without such WMDs, they coukd be seen as weak and vulnerable unless they join an alliance that is ever present, but it also means that attempts with foreign diplomacy could easily fail with no real weight. The KTO once again is offered, given shared finances could offset the heavy burden of a program, but it fell upon Nattia to push through with it, should they decide upon it. It was, of course, not a decision for the rash.

As the modular reactors are set up, facilities begin to rise around them, with Gonswanzan construction companies offering a bonus to workers based on where they operate, given the priority of projects. The bonus was small, but enough to motivate workers to shift around, as a swell of local workers threaten to trample the reactor complex at one point due to a major typing error in posters advertising the project as a public works project offering an "8000% sign on bonus" when it was meant to be "8%" given its significance.

The mob was later turned away by security, without any issue.

Meanwhile, MoTI offers up an independent modification of a Janpian train for greater rail access, but due to delays in delivery from said ally, the A-410 Toby would have to suffice, using diesel rather than overhead lines given the precarious situation of the grid and uncertain power supply, even with three modular reactors firing up to supply power.

The future Queen

Image


The House of Castenac Emblem



Princess Taylor is on the verge of becoming the Queen of Nattia pending a successful outcome with King-elect Yonas. His Majesty has urged his cousin to embark on a journey to Genes to meet her future husband and acquaint herself with the responsibilities of being a queen. It is anticipated that she, along with her mother and several other key foreign advisors, will accompany the royal family on this trip to strengthen relations with the King of Genes and Nattia. The entourage is scheduled to arrive at their destination on Saturday, the 2nd.

The Assembly has finalized the arrangements for a new international Foreign Aid package, which is set to be sent out soon. The package, worth an estimated 2.3 billion collers, will be allocated towards various sectors including Education, Health, Housing relocation, as well as the restoration and strengthening of Nattian Armed Forces and police. The details of the aid package have been carefully negotiated and agreed upon by all parties involved within the Assembly to ensure that it will be utilized effectively and efficiently to address the pressing needs of the country.

This significant Foreign Aid package reflects the commitment of the Assembly to support for Nattia in its development and security efforts.

And then, it arrives. ELT-105s and 105ALs arrive in droves as well as the J-110s, capable aircraft and tanks for the armed forces as well as being eady to maintain in spite of the technology involved. Combined they are a force to be reckoned with, as Gonswanzan crews help to train local forces to the new hardware. The ELTs are of course modest, they arent exactly top of the line MBTs, but at the same time they can be quite capable in the right hands for fire support.

The fighters however are beyond capable, able to go toe-to-toe with most aircraft flying today, and offering a shining model to base ones local designs on, should Nattia seek to replace it with a domestic model.

MoFE had to pay out of pocket for this investment, but it was so a nation could get a handle on their own future.

Arakhkharan reconstruction efforts would progress tirelessly. The Baroness' arrival would herald a fivefold increase in efficiency, as underutilized resources would be find new uses in the reconstruction of Foutila.
The decision was made, that in order to finance the reconstruction, it would be necessary to open Novalira-Foutila Holdings to trading - offering 40% of the company for sale, although structured in such a way that no single buyer could own more than a certain portion of these shares - ensuring that the actual leadership of the company would remain Arakhkharan.
Attracting some investment from the private sector - particularly Amivos Design Bureau - their efforts could ease the economic pressure on the Arakhkharan government, while also allowing for the private sector to get more involved.
Numerous Arakhkharan contractors would be hired - drawing up the plans for the new and improved port, including an ambitious drydock and construction yard that could repair even an Arakhkharan battleship - or build one.
A more immediate concern, was, of course, the roads - and designated teams would spend days using heavy equipment to sift through rubble. As this went in progress, equipment could travel without impediment - reaching any part of the ruined city.

The Port was, naturally, the epicenter of this operation - as every effort would be made to clear out rubble from here, so that it could serve as the basis of a new port. Several undamaged or lightly damaged buildings would be rapidly developed into warehouses, and the cranes in place would be repaired to a working state. The actual area where ships could dock, however, would take much longer to repair, due to the extensive damage incurred.

Seeing her commands followed— despite the agitation that it provoked, Vuorela and her team had had time to caught their breath and draft up plans review the various proposals and plans that had flooded the Ministry of Public Works. First Vuorela issued to the Provisional Council her stamp of approval of the Krowian business proposals:

-Evans Steel Works proposed a $7.1 Billion construction of three facilities in Hevos, Rynkar, and Alajari with rail access to all three locations and port access to two locations.


-Kings Royal Holding proposed a $3.6 Billion construction within both of Liquor and Chocolate facilities in the capitol, Salosaari, Alajari, and Otsopaa.


-Oil sector proposed a $35 Billion construction proposal of a 50-tank oil and energy reservoir complex for gasoline and oil domestic needs with an one-time contribution to fill each 10 of the 50 tanks.


Upon the approval of the proposals, the Evans Steel Works executives, eager, send their best and brightest high caliber personnel to Nattia in several seaplanes where they landed close enough to shore to tie down the planes and proceed to the capitol to where they greeted every official with a handshake and bright smile. As they survey the future site of the corporation next internationals steel plant, they ask for a list of all able body individuals to arrive at the site so they can begin interviews and receiving uniform shirt and some tools. As the heavy equipment arrive from Krow, they are immediately assigned to clearing the area and collecting all debris to be as dirt hill on the property limits.

On the other projects, the Kings Royal holding and its divisional personnel arrive with tons of food, clothes, phones, and body products from the massive humanitarian drive in Krow to be handed to every individual who are in need of such items. They carefully and cautiously unload a large 100,000 gal water tank near the worksite connecting the large structure to a beverage dispenser far enough from the worksite for people to enjoy a small picnic. As they begin work on the building, they also are asking for names so they can begin their hiring process to ensure all workers have a job upon the completion of the two divisions respective buildings.

As the krowian ships and planes all convene at a singular unloading point, they all greet each other until three of Delmar oil tankers loud, deep horns can be heard not to far away as they docked a mile outside of the harbor due to their huge size. Then, several small ships can be seen unloading floating tubes to the shoreline so equipment have a steady supply of rich quality oil.

Summer Palace, Genes
The Transferring of the King to Nattia

King Frederick IV greeted the delegation of royalists and tutors from Nattia at the Summer Palace from his seat on the Peacock Throne, flanked by his wife, Queen Nicolette, daughter and son-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Wervik and their two children, Christopher and the star of this exchange, Yonas Hollande, all dressed in the signature emerald green and gold of the Valwa and Genoise. The King rose from his throne and declared his grandson to be the chosen son of Nattia, and as king-elect of Nattia to hence forth treated as such.

Taking inspiration from the tradition of the exchange of princesses, Yonas was taken away to a canopy, a massive structure of red velvet, lined with ermine fur and decorated with gold thread lions, held up by eight attendants dressed in ornate red and gold livery topped with powered wigs. Yonas was brought beneath the canopy while a priest gave a prayer as the young man was ceremonially stripped of his green and gold attire with the help of further attendants, younger noblemen selected by the king of Genes.

Yonas’ outer clothes were pulled off, and a screen raised and then his underclothes, which were each in turn burned in a massive bronze braziers, the flames leaping up into the air as it consumed the fine fabrics. The young man was left bare, and the attendants went to work, washing him in perfumed rose water and soap, scrubbing him, cleaning every inch of the royal, from his toes to his hair. He was then dried and then oil was applied to his dark skin till he shined. At this point the screen was removed at the command of the King of Genes.

The Genoise royals watched with pride as their youngest member was revealed. Princess Meseret had always held the fact that her sons were handsome with much pride— the four grandchildren of King Frederick IV were unique and thus much praised for their good looks in the royal line—and that feeling remained as Yonas was presented to the Nattians, for this tradition came from the inspection of royals, meant to shown off his healthy and impressive form. Dutifully and solemnly presented, the gentlemen then began redressing the young royal, this time within full view, and in fabrics from Nattia. The clothes were now in red, gold and white, the colors of the new kingdom of Nattia.

“Today Genes and Valwa serves as a mother, and we in blood shall forever remain family” King Frederick IV said, “but it is for Nattia forever to have this son, chosen by it people and ordained by God and the law, we witness the end of Yonas Hollande,” said the king as the dressing was finished, the king’s grandson anointed in Nattian oil with a prayer spoken in roughly memorized Nattian, “and the birth of Hjalmar, King of Nattia!”

Otsopaa, Nattia

It was some surprise that a new issue had started to arise in Nattia amidst the flood of foreign investments and projects across the island nation, a member of the Ministry of Public Works started to notice. Between the near two hundred thousands deaths from the civil war and the influx of projects by the massive international efforts to rebuild, and the humanitarian aid, there were some who started to fear that Nattia would not have enough a) enough workers to both sustain the work ratio needed by law to promote the reconstruction projects and b) would face a demographic crisis down the line particularly as the death of so many had been skewed heavily towards men.

The Provisional Council thus began discussing the idea of adopting a new immigration policy that would potentially reduce this, though it was met with opposition from the Triumvirate, who disliked the idea of a permanent influx of foreigners into the country.




Harjukuapunki, Nattia

There was however good news as with the continued running of the Viita Power Plant and repairs done to the one in Harjukuapunki lead to the light returning to Harjukuapunki, as well as Hevos and Dragvik and Leibor. Meanwhile further west the modular generators and widespread use of individual generators was bringing back rationed electricity to places.

Vuorela too continued to lay the groundwork for her push to keep the capital in Otsopaa with a scheme. As people woke up in Harjukuapunki they were shocked to find the old palace, abandoned following the death of Pekkarinen and evacuation of the Triumvirate to Otsopaa in ruins. Vuorela had, taking the power granted to her, ordered the razing of the palace, bringing it down with the use of wrecking balls after spending the night previous stripping it of all remaining valuables and artifacts and finishes.

The move was not a popular in Harjukuapunki, as many still saw the old palace as the true seat of government and felt that Vuorela had gone too far. Vuorela asserted that she had needed to destroy the palace because it had become structurally unstable during the fighting that had taken place there, and that she fully intended to rebuild a new palace.

This, in secret was only partially true. While the palace had been damaged, it had not so been to the extent that Vuorela claimed— a fact which was rendered impossible to prove down that it had it the midst of being dismantled— and while Vuorela fully intends on rebuilding the palace— she had no intention of rebuilding it in Harjukuapunki. Instead she had selected a site in the wooded outskirts of Otsopaa by the sea and was already reading the site for construction of a new palace there.

Neither of these things had been approved, or indeed done with the knowledge of the Provisional Council or even the Triumvirate, but Vuorela pressed on anyway, finding it would be better to ask for forgiveness than for permission.




Otsopaa, Nattia

The Triumvirate greeted the news of the Saint Asperesan Assembly approval for a multi-billion dollar aid package with warmth. While it was slated to be be used in a new budget for the Armed Forces, police, health, housing and education— they were also using it to serve as the basis of credit for the government, assuring the public that they could trust the new uusi currency:

Meanwhile the Provisional Council began setting the budget itself, with review from the Triumvirate. It was decided that the top areas would be on the National Welfare Program, National Education, the Royal Police, and then the Armed Forces.

A statement was released thanking the Saint Asperes for their commitment to aiding Nattia’s striving to build itself back up and bring itself to a better and brighter future.

The Triumvirate meanwhile issued or to Gonswanza, thanking them for their investment in building up the Nattian Defensive Forces so that it could hold its own in the future against potential threats from the outside world. It was also announced that Nattia had officially joined the Alliance for Security and Prosperity. This however left a bad taste in the mouth of some, who either felt the ASP had been too associated with Pekkarinen or conversely had in its inaction been a key contributor to the civil war itself.




Foutila, Nattia

As activity increased around the reconstruction of the city of Foutila and the construction of its new grand port spearheaded by Arakhkar it two became the epicenter of reconstruction efforts as it presented the grandest of the projects approved by Vuorela, and was to serve as a symbol of a new Nattia. Vuorela thus began sending in requirements for visual ques require in the style of things, as to keep the project cohesive, while maintaining its practicality.

Elsewhere the Krowian projects were flooded with people looking for work, the sight of the ships and tankers and water and oil seem to many as a literal sign of progress coming to Nattia. The Ministry of Treasury meanwhile began working with the various foreign companies, promising to buy up their foreign currency in exchange for their use of the uusi when paying their Nattian hires. This was designed to both stabilize exchange rates with Krowian, Arakhkaran, Gonswanzan, etc currencies as well as part of the Treasury’s push to strengthen and instill trust with the uusi.

Even with projects pushing ahead, rail lines were... Slow. Steel snakes intended to stretch from shore to shore, but lack of power hindered construction even with mobile generators. But the Janpian trains arrive not in Nattia, but in Gonswanza, being modified as A-410s were used to shuttle around mobile work stations to speed up the process, large and heavy lunchboxes pushing rail-mounted cranes while MoTI's rep in the capital hurriedly showed off the proposed trains for the future of Nattian transport: Modified JRR-210A Munascho, the modifications being the removal of overhead line dependence and the installation of an individual power unit, running on diesel fuel with a hybrid electric drive, ensuring independence from the grid. The train model (because of course a model was taken in) seemed sleek, reminiscent of the failed HSR proposal, but operating at a much lower speed with less overhead necessary. A cheaper solution, but so far the only other solution offered for Nattia's railroad woes as rails are laid down.

Construction pushes on, regardless, as eager Gonswanzans wishing to fill the void jump at the opportunity of a lifetime to export their culture. They were only hindered by the government, with the best of intentions, but this slowly backfired given it also meant a limited workforce growing thin as projects increased in scale with excessive emphasis on local hires over imported hands. Eventually, they start dragging in Gonswanzans, in a sudden rush to push ahead, but the work culture being imported may cause some parties to butt heads with the locals or vice versa, given that imported workers were not at all familiar and held their country and leader in high regard.

The Marajarbian Federation would formally congratulate Nattia for joining the Alliance for Security and Prosperity, and hopes that Nattia would consider also joining the Collective Security League, as both of these factions guarantee that a nation will have a big say in what unfolds during global geopolitical events like the currently ongoing Civil War Season, where there are many events which could define the future of the world, and many nations which could play a role in those events as well.

The Marajarbian Construction and Shipping Group would continue to work hard to efficiently rebuild the damaged Nattian infrastructure with assistance from the newly hired Nattian construction workers and lumberjacks. New homes were under construction within both towns and worker settlements to ensure prosperity.

Assembly Bill FLB-1# ( Re-Shape)


In light of the current situation in Nattia, it is imperative to provide foreign aid to support the sectors of education, health, housing relocation, and the restoration and strengthening of the Nattian Armed Forces and police. This proposal aims to outline a comprehensive plan for allocating 2.3 billion collers towards these critical areas.

Education Sector: The education sector in Nattia is in dire need of support. With a significant portion of the population lacking access to quality education(Due to the war), it is crucial to invest in schools, teacher training programs, and educational resources that where all lost. By allocating a portion of the foreign aid towards improving the education system, we can empower the youth of Nattia and pave the way for a brighter future.

Health Sector: Access to healthcare services is essential for the well-being of the Nattian population. By investing in healthcare facilities, medical supplies, and training healthcare professionals, we can improve the overall health outcomes in Nattia. Additionally, initiatives focusing on disease prevention and health education can further enhance the effectiveness of our efforts in this sector.

Housing Relocation: Many individuals in Nattia are currently living in inadequate housing conditions (Due to the war). By providing support for housing relocation programs, we can ensure that all citizens have access to safe and secure housing. This will not only improve living standards but also contribute to social stability and community development.

Restoration and Strengthening of Nattian Armed Forces and Police: In order to maintain peace and security in Nattia, it is crucial to restore and strengthen the Nattian Armed Forces and police. By investing in training programs, equipment upgrades, and infrastructure development for these institutions, we can enhance their capacity to protect the nation and its citizens from internal and external threats.

Summer Palace, Genes

There were cheers amongst the delegation as they looked upon their king to be, having bern both shocked and mesmerized by the intricate ceremony that they had been witness to. It had seemed exotic and mysterious, symbolic and visceral. Precisely what several of the hard line royalistshad hoped before.

Hjalmar himself felt slightly uneasy after it. It had been a deeply symbolic ceremony, as well as an awkward one. And he emerged from it with not simply a new name, but a new identity. A new nation. It had been the great ambition of his parents, his grandfather, to see him wear a crown of his own, to extend their sense of dynasty and royalty. And yet he felt entirely unprepared for it.

Hjalmar— he had to remind himself of his new name— thanked the Nattians— his own new subjects.

“It’s our honor, Your Majesty,” said one, “You shall make a fine king.”

It was then decided that the Nattians, with their new king, would remain in Genes for the time while the king practiced his language skills and prepared for his arrival, as well would meet in Genes Princess Taylor of Saint Asperes, who the king had been betrothed to by his grandfather so that the two may learn to know one another first.

Harjukuapunki, Nattia

As electricity returned to the former capital, so to did a rise of anger and calls for change bubble up. Protestors took to the street in the capital, angered by the feeling of abandonment by the nation’s leaders, and by the influx of foreign businesses snd even more, by foreign workers. Hundreds, and then thousands spread out inbthe main streets of the city, calling for the expulsion of the foreigners, the right of protest, the end of the state run media and the return of the capital to Harjukuapunki.

The Triumvirate’s actions were swift, ordering in the military who began arresting any and all dissenters in the city and carting them away to jail. As thousands filled the jails to the point of overcrowding, the question was raised as to what to do with so many. The Triumvirate feared that this public display of anger, pointed against the government was dangerous— and if allowed to persist, would lead the nation back into a civil war. All in power could agree that that could not be allowed to happen.

The Provisional Council found themselves spilt on the issue— some pushing for them to exile these detractors lest they ferment opposition to the national government before it even got up on its feet. This was shot down by Admiral Harjula, who though only Regent, was certain that if Nattian dissenters were let loose abroad, they would be used as tools to undermine the kingdom. Vuorela concurred, and suggested that it was better to keep them within Nattia and make use of them in work camps for the many construction projects.

Colonel Inha however suggested they take the simplistic path and execute the traitors. Vanhalato pressed against them all, suggesting that they allow the dissenters, and manage them in a form of opposition— opposition that could be ignored, Colonel Janhunen pointed out. This however fell on deaf ears, and at Vuorela’s directions, all those who stood opposed to the government were branded and sentenced to ten years of ‘community service’ , to aid in the rebuilding of the nation. As these new ‘workers’ were sent to the projects in rural Nattia— Vuorela noted how much more time and money they would save with this new more expendable workforce.

Foutila
The addition of 'workers' would be extremely welcome by Arakhkharan taskmasters - most of whom were quite used to working with such labor. This labor would be conscripted for the most arduous work of manually removing large pieces of rubble.
Work would progress swiftly with the influx of labor and materials - as the first facilities of the port would begin to be able to receive cargo, reducing the reliance on the floating harbor.
A terminal was being built with all due haste, one meant to receive all of the construction materials and heavy equipment necessary.

Planning would also begin for the new dockyards - rather, a fleet yard, owned by Novalira-Foutila Holdings, ready for sale to a prospective Arakhkharan or Nattian buyer. These fleet yards that were due to be constructed could construct aircraft carriers if one really needed to - a very large fleet works, the usage of which could be rented out to shipbuilding companies - this would also have the effect of effectively out competing local shipbuilding facilities.

As for the actual naval base - it was designed as a premier naval base, which was to station its own naval detachment - a heavy cruiser and several destroyers. Among other equipment, it was to have integrated Arakhkharan modern air-defense systems, several barracks, hangars for a limited number of aircraft, a runway, a naval instructional facility, fuel tanks, RADAR, and a command center - with a small section designated specifically for the Imperial Service of Intelligence as a blacksite.

Work was proceeding faster than the projected schedule - as the trenches for the new drydocks were being dug with excavators fairly quickly - and large quantities of local concrete were purchased, stimulating the local economy.

The sudden surge of workers available was obviously taken in to work on the rail lines, though despite being intended as punishment by labor, instead the workers were treated equally, even if it was technically a form of neo-slavery. Regardless, they would serve their time working a fair day's labor and wage, as Gonswanza intended to expand the rail network out from the new capital, though various other stations were being focused on as the rail expanded, ahead of rail construction, as intended. A disconnected concert, of course, but one that was made to satisfy the rail gauge intended for the modified trains.

While the train lines and stations were being worked up, the concern of who pays floated around, but it was shoved aside by mild proposals to have power routed along the rail lines or to instead restore the grid as is by repairing felled power lines. The latter choice was more optimistic than the former, hence it was used for now, while station designs would remain plain and simple for the sake of construction, though they would be built with intent for murals and monuments immortalizing the revolution and offering a silent voice against the former monarchy, as intended.

Otsopaa, Nattia

It was a little after midnight when First Councilor Vanhalato was informed that Hjalmar had left from Genes and was on his way to the capital, rather than via shop as planned instead via plane. The young monarch to be it seemed had grown impatient, declaring that if he was going to be king, he would need to be a king. A sentiment that rubbed Vanhalato the wrong way, though one that the Triumvirate, when themselves told, hardly dismissed.

Their attend instead turned to the proposed sale by the Arakhkaran Imperial Arms Corporation of their crowd control technology. Colonel Janhunen was also immediately against it, finding the idea of employing a military unit that had the name psychochemical in it to be a step too far. While the colonel did not like the opposition, he feared the reactionary stance that such a move would push the nation towards.

Colonel Inha however saw it as simply a securing opportunity of maintaining the peace. Indeed, already the Triumvirate’s control had been tightened by the seizing of all media outlets in the country. Now the only news media in Nattia was state run, at the control and direction of the triumvirate. It was this perhaps ironic that the Triumvirate had themselves found more power wielded in their grasp than the old kings or Pekkarinen had emerged held.

There was almost a sense of whiplash as Otsopaa, Viita and Karhu markedly improved—control by the advisors of the government grew more and more in trench. As well as more hidden as official announcements made less and less overt mentions of the Triumvirate. The labor volunteers too bad proved a valuable deterrent for those who might had raised their voices in protest, as construction found— with it fresh supply of expendable labor speeding up and great progress of the nation continuing.

It was decided eventually by the Triumvirare that they would agree on the purchase of one unit of the PWV-53, quietly and without fanfare, while also deciding to draw the line at the purchase of chemical weapons or other devices of mass destruction, as that was not considered suitable for the brand of the nation. A brand that increasing one of “The People and Progress!” With posters of good looking, innovative and hard working Nattian men plastered over Harjukuapunki and around construction sights.

Vuorela, finding herself leaning towards the grandeur and pomp of the monarchists, as part of these propagandic plans shifted the directions and follows of their ‘volunteers’ at will, like moving pieces on a board. The’ volunteers’ were ordered off all Gonswanzan projects— much to Vanhalato’s delight given his ever present disdain for the Gonswanzans— as they were considered wasted there when there were Nattians who could work there for good wages.

Instead the criminals placed solely under either on working in Foutila or on the Public monuments project list— Nattian government leaf public works that were set to fundamentally reshape Otsopaa with the construction of new green spaces, public seating, water fountains, saunas, bathhouses and statues honoring King Hjalmar and Kaarle Siltala who was hailed as a national hero for his vanquishing of Pekkarinen and service the monarchy and the nation.

Given Siltala was dead only aided in this, with the painting of him as a valiant and brave hero coming naturally to many everyday Nattians— most of who had never heard of him before the Battle of the Palace where he valiantly defeated the villainous Pekkarinen at the cost of his own life, and paved the way for the new democratic Council of State to usher in a new era of peace and stability. Thus the Triumvirate, with art and roads and marble were quite literally building a foundation myth for their state.

Foutila
The addition of the 'conscript laborers' formerly working on Gonswagan projects was, again, well received by the Arakhkharan reconstruction effort. Progress would be carved at the end of a hypothetical lash - and the influx of labor would accelerate further the reconstruction efforts.
There also came the matter of housing these convicts - something that could be easily achieved, given the Arakhkharan track record with this sort of labor.

With work on the first of the drydocks nearing completion, and the terminal for cargo deliveries complete, massive volumes of cargo and equipment could now be brought in without stopping.

The Imperial Arms Corporation was slightly disappointed when only one order was placed - yet, still, with the right equipment, a single PWV-53 was capable of ending a riot by itself - as recent classified reports of combat performance in the Sylvarian civil war can attest. It was fully capable of ending a riot or insurgency alone - one way, or the other.
There came the matter of assigning grenades - because actual chemical weapons could not be sold, they had to resort to instead supplying much less restricted tear gas and smoke grenades.
The vehicle was unloaded, along with several hundred 40mm tear gas grenades - brought to the burgeoning port of Foutila, for delivery to the Nattian government.

They would also begin to lay the groundwork for a grand-square, with a proposed marble victory monument to stand in its center, to stand at 40 meters tall - a large street, laid with a great number of bricks, where one could feasibly host a large parade. The plans were also put in place for the new city hall of Foutila, as the old city hall was deemed irreparable - to replace it, a city hall in Gothic style, with typical Arakhkharan architectural grandeur. However, the plans would be forwarded to the Ministry of Public Works for approval.

The project would also expose several glaring issues in Foutila's infrastructure - it was hoped that the sewer system was intact. An inspection, using convicts, found that the sewer system of Foutila was ancient, and crumbling. It would have to be entirely pumped out, and replaced with a more modern system.
The effective blank slate also effectively gave them license to redesign Foutila's system of roads - with the planned replacement allowing for the rapid transport of materials and manpower, while clearing out most bottlenecks.
This proposed system of roads would also seem to have the planned military base quite heavily in mind - with the roads allowing for forces in the base to reach major locations in the city within 10 minutes or less.

This new road system, was, truthfully, quite efficient - it was projected to make logistics, corporate, government, military, and civilian at least 24% more efficient - with a projected net increase in productivity with the effective reduction of traffic.

With the rapid cycling of employment through a rotating door, projects ended up being delayed. Mild protests began to mount only for Gonswanzan military units to settle things quickly, trying to hold the peace, to avoid even more workers getting pulled away. Prefab constructs were being shipped in, helping to reinforce construction of stations, while more reactors increased capacity at the cost of greater stress on existing water infastructure. Yet, mild protests, if any, against the plant were left to the matters of the local govt due to the fact that such protestors are usually unemployed and uneducated dropouts who are more akin to parasites, leeching off government handouts.

Progress on the rail network only accelerated, with more motivated workers and a greater focus due to the chaotic loop forced upon other projects, which was ironic in a twisted sense.

Back in the capital, the rep from the MoD again raises the question of possible future deterrents, given Nattia appeared weak due to a recent civil war with hostile forces on the horizon and the collapse of ASP crippling CSL to... Nobody's actual surprise. Not only that, but there was also fair warning of the CSL going tobwar, and likely dragging Nattia into the conflict, one that they could not afford to fight. Hence, they needed a way to back their own standing.

Marajarbia would condemn the new forced labor law, calling it “Nattian Slavery” and “Totalitarian Oppression on the basic human and civil rights of the people, especially when it comes to free speech.”

In workers settlements controlled or operated by the Marajarbian Construction and Shipping Group, Nattians forcibly brought to live and work for reconstruction are instead set free, given the offer to resettle in Marajarbian territory as a form of political asylum, as the Marajarbian Government under President Daniel Robinson works hard to make sure that the evils of slavery are dealt with accordingly.

In one worker settlement, named by the Marajarbian Construction and Shipping Group as Fort Hope, the population has exploded due to the rapid influx of locally hired Nattians, Nattians that have been freed from their enslaved status, as well Marajarbian and Mystery Realmsian workers from abroad. Plans are created to expand Fort Hope, to convert it from a worker settlement into an HQ for all of the Marajarbian reconstruction operations within Nattia.
