Dear Dame Julianna,

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Danielle von Faber-Castell, the managing director of Cartenberg-Utreck Crown Breau. I am responsible to oversee the Bureau's annual performance, producing and planning the Bureau's strategy alongside with senior management and to maintain the Bureau's relationship with her stakeholders. If I may, the Crown Bureau is a sovereign wealth fund which is fully owned by the Carlsvadian Royal Family(House of Cartenberg-Utreck) and the Bureau's main objective are to invest in the Real and Financial markets on behalf of the Carlsvadian Royal Family and managing the Royal Family assets either financial or fixed assets in the form of the Royal Palaces and Crown Estates, Royal Crown Jewels and the Royal Family's Privy Purse.

Bank of Yohannes has attracted the attention of the Crown Bureau as the Bureau recognise the Bank of Yohannes is one of the earliest and oldest financial known international institution with a robust reputation and holds an impeccable performance in the Financial sector. Therefore, the Crown Bureau would like to open two accounts under the Bank of Yohannes(enclosed is the application form) where the Bureau's initial deposit for the respective accounts are $541 billion for Cash Fund Account and $40 billion in Gold Bullion as the Bureau recognises Yohannes reputation as one of the best in the industry.

World Assembly: When populism helps the environment and the green industrial future



    Image
    Claudia A—Opinion Piece Author: That is to say, Marioncare, ironically only legislated into reality because of the dangerous forces of populism and their exploitation by our politicians, will hopefully provide a helping hand for the underprivileged workers left behind; so they can more easily escape the suffocating grip of deindustrialisation ...


    Royal Alexandria, 31 August 2018 —According to the Encyclopædia Maxtopia, deindustrialisation can be defined as the process of social and economic changes caused by the removal or reduction of industrial capacity or activity, especially heavy manufacturing industry. That is to say, it’s the reality we have faced since the end of the Economic Miracle period (1946-2016).

    When we read official legislative publications in Yohannes, such as the Parliamentary Analysis Archive, we tend to compare figures: Economic growth? 0.75 per cent this quarter or the next. Annual net migration rate? 750,000 last year. Whole time equivalent average weekly earnings? 910.07 NationStates or Universal Standard Dollars.

    But more than likely figures and graphs won’t portray the intangible costs unaccounted for, nor will they accurately reflect the feeling of the electorates. For instance, the November Parliamentary Analysis Archive in 2017 forecast 4.3 per cent unemployment rate by the end of the next fiscal quarter. It also hinted, at random, that this was due to not just high net migration level but also deindustrialisation across the continent.

    In the following day’s sitting, Chancellor Annabelle Thorndon-Stevensonn took these figures at face value, or rather attempted to do so in a very convincing manner, and fired back during oral questioning time at members of the Opposing Forces. She failed to take into account—and she refused to accept—the bigger picture which had produced high unemployment figures in the Deep South and Heartland countries.

    Those pundits and supporters of a more regulated immigration environment had warned Thorndon-Stevensonn that voters across the Kingdom of Burmecia, Grand Duchy of Dali, Noble Republic of Treno and Merchant Republic of Landburg—the Bible Belt countries—would punish her for her addiction to graphs and numbers which display only meaningless economic and capital growth on paper. And they did just that in January 2018, when they elected GOP’s Marion Maréchal-Le Men as the 18th President of the Electoral College.

    The bipartisan negotiation that followed—the alternative being the failure of every single future executive council bill to come to vote by the Executive Council—established two new nation-state wealth funds: the Infrastructure of Nation State Significance Fund, which was mentioned briefly by The Royal Alexandria Times on 29 August, and the more controversial of the two, the Industrial Care and Revitalisation Fund, otherwise known for its partisan name, “Marioncare.”

    Since the fund’s shaky start six months ago, Marioncare has rapidly grown to become the seventh largest wealth fund in the Nineteen Countries—the biggest loser from its astronomical rise being the holder of the first position, the Central Provident Fund, which has found itself being stripped off direct executive council contributions until 2025.

    What, then, is the purpose of Marioncare?

    Declining industries on the continent. According to the GOP official website, the first purpose of Marioncare is to cushion the working people—in not just the Bible Belt and the Heartland countries, but also the coastal “Rainbow countries”—from the blows “inflicted” by “heavy old industry’s decline, high net migration and the forces of internationalisation.” Fundamentally, to protect the common working people from rapid internationalisation and to mitigate the costs of deindustrialisation. To protect the hard-working line assemblers, the plumbers and the micro and small-sized business owners.

    Which brings us to its second purpose; its most challenging task—to help bring about the “green revolution” in the Nineteen Countries.

    All Yohannesian citizens 30 and over who are made unemployed are eligible to receive Industrial Care and Revitalisation payments provided they are willing to take jobs in “Fund Approved” sectors. Christian Democratic Party members mockingly called it “Marionpay” and “Marioncare-for-you.” The Fund also subsidises small and medium-sized enterprises eligible to apply for supplementary funding. Special preferences will be given to businesses involved with the renewable-energy industries.



    Image



    Figure 1: Part of the Solar Power Regional Systems (SPRS) complex in Reichsgau Bergen auf Rügen, Kingdom of Alexandria.

    The Nineteen Countries can only afford these payments through taxpayer contributions and rates paid by today’s citizens and permanent residents. With forecast of increasingly higher decline in the “traditional manufacturing” sector of the economy, the fund will soon reach its “critical point”; that is, when the number of taxpayers and eligible enterprises as a proportion of the working age population and nationwide enterprises has dropped below a certain point that could not be be crossed if support for those receiving the supplementary funding is to be kept. These inevitable demographic and internationally induced changes mean that our future generations will have to face a much higher tax burden for Yohannes to keep funding its universal “Green industry” initiative.

    To tackle this challenge, until the time when the Nineteen Countries can tackle head-on the challenges of internationalisation, the Worker Protection and Industry Care Act 2018, or the “Marioncare Act,” has legislated by statutory obligations as follows: (i) The Industrial Care and Revitalisation Fund (ICRF), a collection of both domestic and foreign sourced capital and assets for the Executive Council Books; and (ii) the Board of Industrial Care and Revitalisation in the Bank of Yohannes (Forest Protector), a nation-state body corporate charged with administering the ICRF.

    Since its creation in February, the executive council and its quangos, which include the Bank of Yohannes and VMK Defence and Steel Works, have contributed 16 trillion Quertz russling (140.7 billion NSD) to the Fund. Contributions are scheduled to continue until the third quarter of 2025, when the Executive Council will be looking to directly increase fundamental government borrowing (by gross debt issue) to support underperforming sectors of the economy. Payment is to commence once again when fundamental government debt has fallen below 30 per cent of real GDP, taking into account differential and seasonal adjustments.

    By current trend of contributions, the Executive Council is set to take money from the ICRF by the second half of 2035 as it continues to exponentially increase in size (from current forecast) in the fifteen-year period to 2050. By statutory obligations the Executive Council must then resume its contributions and close the coffer of ICRF again until it is forecast to peak in size as a percentage of real GDP by 2060.

    Just like the Central Provident Fund, ICRF’s capital is partly invested in growth-oriented and highly diversified portfolio, such as International Incidents guarantees and instruments in emerging “hotspot” regions. As a nation-state body corporate, the Forest Protector can spend and invest as deemed necessary, and while the Minister of the Treasury and Wealth Fund is given the power to act as “head authority,” the Minister is by precedents dissuaded from influencing the Forest Protector’s operation on the ground. As a nation-state body corporate, the Forest Protector must submit operational reports to the Chancellor every year, and must present their audited statements of annual accounts before Parliament.

    Looking ahead, over a third of Marioncare’s capital will be invested outside the continent of Yohannes, where most of the growth are. Injecting capital in multiple countries allows for greater diversification and investment opportunities than would otherwise be available had Marioncare involved itself strictly inside the Nineteen Countries’ borders.

    Will Marioncare effectively contribute to the “old industry” hard workers in the increasingly rusty Bible Belt regions? Will Marioncare support the increasing focus placed on renewable energy and green growth policies in Yohannes? And most importantly, will it continue to maintain its current forecast growth in, say, 2050, even as withdrawal levels start to overtake contributions?

    And what about politics? What will happen when a future vengeful Christian Democratic Party-led Executive Council or Parliament, free from legislative interference by Marion Maréchal-Le Men’s presidency and Saul Ryan’s speakership, will have the opportunity to amend, or worse, repeal the “Marioncare Act” altogether?

    Only time will tell.

    Personally, I believe that the decline of the “old manufacturing” sector is something that we will have to eventually face head-on. We can’t run away from internationalisation and the constantly changing international community beyond the International Incidents. The rise of populist rhetoric on both sides of the political spectrum is intertwined with the rising unemployment, despair, and lost hope felt by our hard-working people in the Bible Belt districts and the Heartland countries. It is true that Marion is a populist Yohannesian Emperor. She likes to flirt with the politics of xenophobia, and she is unwilling to distance herself from her more offensive colleagues, such as Ronald Chump and Nickel Fallage. But at least she got one thing right.

    She will finally provide enough support—financial and real, not just rhetorical—for our green industry and the renewable energy future. For every job in the old, traditional manufacturing sector shed from our economy, another one from the “new, green” manufacturing sector will be made available somewhere.

    That is to say, Marioncare, ironically only legislated into reality because of the dangerous forces of populism and their exploitation by our politicians, will hopefully provide a helping hand for the underprivileged workers left behind, so they can more easily escape the suffocating grip of deindustrialisation.

    A legacy carried over from the previous century, but one need not be kept in Yohannes for our children’s future.

    Today’s exchange rate: According to the International Securities and Exchange Commission, 1 NationStates or Universal Standard Dollar (NSD/USD) (World Assembly and International Standard) can be used to buy 111.08 Quertz russling (Yohannesian); that is, a Yohannesian must spend at least §111.08 to afford $1 NS.

    Tot agree with you 100% @claudiaa. Yohannesians have a long way to go if were to escape the fate of the United States. The Nineteen Countries should be more like Sweden or Germany not the US or the UK. I was a wee tod Third Industrial Growth period (1933-1945) and watched Yohannesians go from having less but more charitable now to see NationStates wingers and extreme market advocates. Can we also kick Asians and Muslims too had enough of them opening dairoes and shops speaking God knows what

World Assembly: The registration of HTU Bank begs the question of what happened here back home?



    Image
    Claudia A—Opinion Piece Author: ... HTU is not a local bank—they don’t have existing links with Tobiasia’s rural communities, to be able to sustain non-urban operations there, nor do they have access to many other things the local banks have enjoyed for decades; and some, for centuries ...


    Royal Alexandria, 31 August 2018—The Royal Alexandria Times has learned that the Bank of Yohannes will open 5,100 new overseas branches, which are set to create 85,000 new jobs over the next eight years.

    Israel Altmann, the Bank of Yohannes’ Senior Political Risk Analyst, told the International Diplomacy and Advisory Committee this morning that the news is part of the bank’s 190 billion NSD “market participation focus programme in the major population centres of the Liberal Socialist Republic of Tobiasia Ukraine.”

    The programme will include such initiatives as the incremental increase of staff salaries to keep up with the Nineteen Countries Consumer Price Index, which is used as economic indicators to measure inflation by tracking the prices of commonly bought and essential goods and services in Yohannes (e.g. clothing, food).

    Mr Altmann said, “We can project that, by 2025, we will have served five million customers across Tobiasia’s consumer banking market.”

    With the permission of the Embassy of Tobiasia to Yohannes, the Bank of Yohannes’ operation has been registered on the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Trade’s Company Register as the Heartland and Tobiasia Ukraine Bank (HTU Bank) General Partnership. HTU will provide a range of basic services such as family business lending, mortgage and pension fund. However, the demographic beating heart of HTU’s operation in Tobiasia will be those “mum and dad” and “nan and pop”—that is, retail banking.

    Mr Altmann concluded by saying, “Our central office will be strategically located just three blocks away from the Tobiasian National Reserve and the National Finance Analysts Centre. This reflects our commitment to breaking into the thriving, lucrative market that is the Tobiasian nation-state. We understand that we will face strong competitions from Tobiasia’s major players—but we are not one to back down from a challenge!”

    Mr Altmann’s enthusiasm stood in direct contrast to the news we saw daily about the state of 21st century banking here in Yohannes: the changing ways that we, as customers, connect personally with those entrusted to look after our savings. It is no secret that as automation and technology— the internet, to name just one—increasingly claim our lives and the way we do things, major banks have followed suit and adapted by cutting down on “unnecessary” costs; they close down rural branches, expand their online presence, and trim existing personalised services, laying off staff by the hundreds and thousands—some, who have worked for the same bank, in the same branch, their entire lives.

    There is perhaps truth to the explanation given by most Yohannesian banks: they were forced to close down yet another small village branch, terminating the employment of their local staff because of falling customer visits and retention. The internet and mobile banking have made branch banking simply something from the past. But this explanation has failed to take into account those vulnerable citizens, who for one reason or another could not access the internet reliably. Elderly residents in the rural heartland come to mind, and so do rural workers who do not have reliable access to the Maxtopian world wide web.

    For instance, a regional census by Economic and Demographics Statistics Yohannes in January this year revealed only 58 per cent of our rural ratepayers in the Noble Republic of Treno took up online banking, while only 31 per cent rural ratepayers there used mobile banking. Since 2010, 147 bank branches have been closed down in rural Treno—30 of those belonged to the Bank of Yohannes. 840 employees have lost their jobs from closures.

    Which begs the question: if the Bank of Yohannes is reporting green trajectory after another green trajectory on their books outside Yohannes, why can’t they do the same here without having to resort to closing down branches and cutting down on services for our rural communities?



    Image



    Figure 1: The Tobiasian hub of public finance, which includes the National Finance Analysts Centre, National Auditors Department, Corporate Courts of Justice, the Tobiasian National Reserve (where the Tobiasian Pound is controlled and regulated, and the state reserves are kept), and the surrounding offices of major companies in the nation.

    For his part, soon to be Managing Director of HTU Bank, Nicolas Fröhlich, said the Bank of Yohannes’ “market participation focus” programme in overseas countries have long emphasised the importance of urban market participation—that is, the HTU Bank in Tobiasia will not be extending its services beyond the country’s 40 largest districts by population.

    “Our operation will mainly be concentrated in the non-peripheral high density regions; the Greater Kiev and Odessa regions, and to a lesser extent Rostov, Sevastopol, Donetsk, and other major local government territories,” Mr Fröhlich confirmed. In other words, HTU Bank, and presumably the majority of other partners and subsidiary banks of the Bank of Yohannes overseas, have chosen to avoid serving rural and “peripheral” regions.

    Tzefanyahu Rosenberg, the Bank of Yohannes Group Company Secretary, agrees with the bank’s decision, saying that “HTU is not a local bank—they don’t have existing links with the rural communities of Tobiasia to sustain non-urban operations there, nor do they have access to many other things the local financial institutions have enjoyed for decades; and some, for centuries.

    “It’s the same here, back home, too: we rarely see foreign banks, or financial institutions affiliated with foreign banks operating in, say, the deep South and the deepest of the Bible Belt districts,” Mr Rosenberg said.

    “They almost always restrict their operations in the metropolitan Rainbow districts: the electorates with the highest population densities in the Nineteen Countries.”

    Mr Altmann said the Bank of Yohannes has long stressed its commitment to mitigating the increasing trend of “rural branch closures” in Yohannes. “Although we have closed more than 30 branches in rural Treno since 2010, we have to remember that, at the same time, we have increased the average minimum wage for entry level client-facing and onboarding staff from 24.50 NSD an hour to 29.00 NSD. For instance, a teller would have enjoyed an increase from 19.50 NSD to 23.50 NSD an hour. We have also offered relocation options for some of our branch and customer service staff.”

    The Bank of Yohannes Group Chief Executive, Dame Julianna Stefansson, said, “We are very excited about contributing to the workforce figures of Tobiasia’s thriving metropolises and expanding into its regional markets. When we establish our presence in a country, we do so with the entire commitment of our international sisterhood of finance and our integration into the local communities.”

    Walking through the front door of a recently opened branch in Greater Nifon to meet her in person myself last week, I couldn’t avoid looking at the interesting greeter: a robot—well, I’m positive it was not someone wearing a robot costume by the way!

    That was a show of Greater Nifon’s 21st century technological advance incorporated as a localised feature of the Bank of Yohannes’ presence there. So to some extent, Dame Julianna was telling the truth after all.

    Dame Julianna said, “We aim to be the international community’s bank. We do our small part in contributing to the growing economy that is our host nation. We create jobs. We provide capital. We are involved in local events. We create cool, 21st century international branches for the surrounding communities.”

    Good.

    Which brings us to the following question: if the Bank of Yohannes can do all these wonderful things Dame Julianna said outside the Nineteen Countries, why couldn’t they do the same here back home in our rural communities?

    Dame Julianna, I’m still waiting for the answer.

    Today’s exchange rate: According to the International Securities and Exchange Commission, 1 NationStates Dollar or 1 Universal Standard Dollar (NSD/USD) (World Assembly and International Standard) is enough to buy 111.19 Quertz russling (Yohannesian); that is, a Yohannesian needs to spend at least §111.19 to be able to afford $1 NS.

World Assembly: Taking the green fight to the next level — investing in a sustainable future



    Image
    Claudia A—Opinion Piece Author: And BlackPower’s success has translated well for those invested in the company too. The UKK Ministry of Environmental Conservation, the “green” arm of the Kykid8 Government, was one of those foreign investors. It invested 19 billion Quertz russling (150 million NSD) into the company in 2013. By the second half of 2019, it is forecast to bring in 122.8 billion Quertz rusling (1.1 billion NSD) for the UKK taxpayers’ books ...


    Royal Alexandria, 31 August 2018—Everyday we see the fragility of the beautiful place we live in—the flooding of a river in the People’s Democratic Republic of Banananistan; the cries of displaced native birds in New Testlandia; the pains of mother penguins, separated from their children by melting ice: the hundreds of wars, thousands of polluting states, and millions of shameless industrialists have harmed the international communities as we know them.

    Everyday we see the demonstrations by environmental activists, telling our politicians, “Genug ist genug!” Some taking things too far by advocating for piracy, militancy and debauchery “for the green cause.” The mainstream media, in turn, are more than happy to continue this endless cycle of action and reaction that, in the end, results in everyone having lost sight of our main objectives.

    Is there a more practical way to fight for the green cause; preferably one that does not involve setting ablaze one’s national parliamentary building, or worse, kidnapping one’s Head of State?

    Since its founding in 2008, Landburger-Cleyrälisches Elektrizitätswerk Aktiengesellschaft (English: Landburger-Cleyran Power Plant Joint Stock Company; LCE AG) has stolen the limelight due in no small part to its Bond for the Environment Scheme (BES), which was launched in March this year. Not wanting to let LCE eat the whole cake, since then other players in the Nineteen Countries energy utilities community have followed suit with their own programmes. What had started as a small initiative by just one company translated into a nationwide appetite for socially responsible investing and industry-led movement to tackle climate change.

    At its core, the BES was set up to provide capital for eco-friendly IC (industrial capacity) developments and assets. The scheme is fully subsidised by such government initiatives as the Industrial Care and Revitalisation Fund and the Kazansky Allanea Act 2017, allowing it to avoid some of the pitfalls seen in other use of proceeds schemes. It gives extra assurance for private sector investors who would otherwise not participate in the scheme.

    But what, then, is the purpose of BES?

    “One, accountability and commitment, to participate in the struggle to reduce carbon emission in accordance with existing World Assembly standards,” said Mr Edmund Löffler, LCE Chairman of the Supervisory Board. In his eyes, it translates to adhering to hard, scientifically proven emission reduction regimes.

    “Two, working capital to further the green cause,” he added. BES advocated for strategic engagement and the building of deep relationship with LCE’s partners, i.e. target companies and stakeholders. According to the company’s website, they include assets refinance services, green business practices and water productivity grading. And in this, LCE is not alone—quite a few other companies in Yohannes are already adopting similar stands for their own “Bond for the Environment” programmes.

    Third, Mr Löffler said that “warm reception by the private sector” is another key factor. For interested investors, BES provides easy access to environmentally sensitive products. In fact, since 2013 this fund sector has reported a fairly strong green trajectory, showcasing the growing focus placed on sustainable investment in the Nineteen Countries.

    Which brings us to its fourth and final purpose: enhancing one’s brand. As LCE has seen since it first released BES in March, when companies introduce 21st century initiatives such as eco-friendly investment vehicles, they will get good publicity from not just the press, but also members of the public. Along the way, the company has been able to share its history of “ethical” and “responsible” investing; that it has maintained a good reputation since its founding, and of the other financial benefits that can be had from investing in an environmentally responsible business—their business, of course.



    Image



    Figure 1: The Bank of Yohannes is a proud supporter of the Climate Bonds Initiative, an international organisation working solely to mobilise the largest capital market of all, the 100 trillion NSD bond market, for climate change solutions.

    Through its Bond for the Environment Scheme, the company has so far raised 299.1 billion Quertz russling (2.68 billion NSD), along the way giving committed parties a wide range of eco-friendly instruments, which include such things as facilities with clearly defined terms and conditions and unsecured short-term debt instruments. BES received its accreditation from the Green Star Energy and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Compliance Rating (Block 1-7) in December last year, meaning it fully complies with World Assembly Resolution #357 Promotion of Clean Energy.

    Mr Löffler said, “The accreditation] shows that low-carbon energy is an integral criterion for our assets—in fact, almost one-third of our generated electricity is renewable. We take this principle very seriously in the day-to-day management of our valuable resources.”

    Ms Beatrice Eisenberger, LCE Chief Financial Relations and Income Officer, said the company will gradually incorporate all future funding raised into its Bond for the Environment Scheme. “Since March, we have intended for the BES to be incorporated into the Bank of Yohannes’ Industrial Care and Revitalisation Fund.” The company’s website also said that it has seriously considered incorporating its hydroelectric power stations in Münchenmôtier and Sjoland into the programme since March. However, it wants to wait for the December 2018 general election results before committing further resources for the scheme.”

    As one of Landburg’s family brands, LCE is a member of an advisory electric utilities committee connected with Chambers of Industry and Commerce Yohannes. According to the Chambers’ website, its mission is to work “together to streamline industry standards and create a unitary hydroelectricity framework in the Nineteen Countries.” The committee reports directly to Parliament’s Select Committee on Domestic Commerce. As LCE is included, the company can incorporate its second debt issuance, which is set to be released by the second quarter of 2020, into the Bond for the Environment Scheme.

    Ms Eisenberger concluded by saying, “Our scheme attracts more green capital providers who agree with our method to contribute to the low carbon future for the Nineteen Countries. I believe that this is the time for us to take a stand. We are very excited to invite our customers to help us bring about this change—it highlights our company’s green sustainability commitment, and I am proud of it.”

    As we should all be.

    The LCE is fully committed, in its own way, to contribute to the Nineteen Countries’ very gradual transitioning into a low carbon economy. “House to house, and town to town,” according to Ms Hannah Woken of the Environmental Care Forum, a public-private green initiative think tank in the Kingdom of Alexandria. “I believe that there are still many other things out there that we can, and we should, do to champion the good, green cause, especially in government supported energy intensive industrial capacity and high density public transportation, where the public sector can lead the way to reduce non-renewable energy dependency.”

    I like her optimism.

    Meanwhile, Bank of Yohannes Chairperson of Group Sustainability Committee, Dame Chloe McLachlan, the person who had spearheaded the establishment of LCE’s Bond for the Environment Scheme, said its successful launch has catapulted other Yohannesian electric utilities companies to create similar offerings. “I have been contacted for quite a wee while now concerning further bond issuance into the Nineteen Countries market ... something that, I believe, would not be there had it [the true potential of the BES] not been realised.”

    Despite the good news, however, Dame Chloe believes that Yohannes’ energy community has been slow to adopt, or perhaps tolerate, similar credit market, especially when compared with the country’s historical trading partners. She said, “However, I believe that there is still hope, especially when we look at the increasing prominence of better electricity generation efficiency, higher renewable production, and green best practice since the turn of the century.”

    The passing of important green resolutions by the World Assembly, such as Resolutions #298 and #357, have coincided with the outstanding growth of climate bond issuance by our investors in Yohannes. Nothing exemplifies this trend better than the following market information: by the third quarter of 2018, climate bond issuance by Nineteen Countries energy utilities companies would draw an estimated 2.1 trillion Quertz russling (19 billion NSD/USD), almost double the number from the same period in 2016. According to Mr Martin Neumann, government representative to the World Assembly Development Foundation (WADF), the Yohannesian climate bond market is forecast to increase by 569.5 trillion Quertz russling (5.1 trillion NSD) come 2030.



    Image



    Figure 2: In April this year, Royal Alexandria became the first city to fully commit itself to a low-carbon vision. Enshrined by statute was the 50 per cent reduction of carbon emissions goal by 2030, which will be sourced largely from rooftop solar systems and waste.

    And Landburger-Cleyran Power Plant has not been the only company to prove that the green revolution need not be about the burning of one’s parliamentary building or the seizure of one’s oil ship.

    The Unitary Republic of Molander’s oldest equity fund by sector has gambled on “astronomical return rates” for a range of renewable energy investments in the Nineteen Countries. Based in the northeast Rainbow state’s capital city Fürstenbeck, the investment vehicle Schwarze-Macht Energieversorger Kommanditgesellschaft (English: BlackPower Energy Supplier Limited partnership) believed it has struck the proverbial Ducat when it achieved double gains on a number of assets bought in 2013, just before the pro-market 36th Christian Democratic Executive Council was voted into office to replace the Seventh Social Democratic Executive Council, which was too busy participating in economically damaging international incidents with other foreign countries in 2012.

    According to the Minister of Economy, Industry and Trade, Hon Emily Kirchweger, the “successful take-off of such nation-state funds as the Central Provident Fund in 2014, combined with the newly elected government’s vision for a clean, green twenty-first century country, has allowed BlackPower and other smaller vehicles to ride the wave, so to speak.”

    And BlackPower’s success has translated well for those invested in the company too. The UKK Ministry of Environmental Conservation, the “green” arm of the Kykid8 Government, was one of those foreign investors. It had poured 19 billion Quertz russling (150 million NSD) into the company in 2013. By the second half of 2019, its investment is forecast to bring in 122.8 billion Quertz rusling (1.1 billion NSD) for the UKK taxpayers’ books.

    The UKK Ministry of Environmental Conservation website said, “Our nation values environment above all else. With the majority of our spending going towards our environment, it’s no secret that we are within the top five per cent of the entire world with the most gorgeous natural beauty. This won’t just benefit us. Providing funds to allow us to continue our great work of preservation and up-keep will not only boost your public image, but we are even willing to proudly announce you as a partner to one of the greatest Environmental Conservation Acts the world has ever seen.”

    So yes, there is a more practical way to fight for the green cause—one that does not involve setting ablaze a country’s national parliamentary building.

    And here in the Nineteen Countries we have done quite well.

    If the Americans can do it, so can we!

    Company profile: Landburger-Cleyrälisches Elektrizitätswerk AG is a Yohannesian electric utilities company based in Münchenmôtier, the political beating heart of the Merchant Republic of Landburg. Invested in the Royal Realm of Cleyra and Landburg itself, the energy company supplies electricity and gas to more than three million customers. LCE is the third largest electricity producer in the southeast Bible Belt region.

    Schwarze-Macht Energieversorger KG is a Yohannesian investment vehicle based in Fürstenbeck, the capital and largest city of the Unitary Republic of Molander. According to its website, the firm participates mostly in the capital and private markets and principal activities of the northeast Rainbow countries. Besides energy, the firm also invests in real estate and the infrastructure, for instance, when it had pledged last year to participate in the Infrastructure of Nation-State Significance programme of the 36th Christian Democratic Executive Council.

    Today’s exchange rate: According to the International Securities and Exchange Commission, 1 NationStates Dollar or 1 Universal Standard Dollar (NSD/USD) (World Assembly and International Standard) could buy 111.55 Quertz russling (Yohannesian); that is, a Yohannesian will need to spend at least §111.55 to afford $1 NS.

World Assembly: A tale of two realities — the rainbow future and the bible belt



    Image
    Claudia A — Opinion Piece Author: ...... The community. Gone. The Christian Democrats; those wanka’ — they tryin’ replace our Yohannesian Model, our social market economy, with imported neoliberal market experiment from English speaking nation states with failed capitalist economies like the US and the UK. Wee bit disappointed..........


    Royal Alexandria, 1 September 2018 — The Royal Alexandria Times can report that Yohannesische Reichsbank Aktiengesellschaft (English: Bank of Yohannes Joint Stock Company) has announced the opening of its first fully independent branch in the State of Nusalia. Its operation has been listed on the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Trade’s Company Register as Nusälisches und Yohannesisches Reich Islamische Bankengruppe Offene Handelsgesellschaft (English: Nusalia and Yohannes Islamic Banking Group General Partnership; NIB OHG).

    Mr Mahmood Al-Allee, designated NIB Chief Executive Officer, believes that the three-storey branch is the biggest bank centre to have ever been built by a general partner institution of the Bank of Yohannes. “With a total area of 1,480 square metres, it should be bigger than even existing major Bank of Yohannes branches in the continent of Yohannes’ central business districts.”

    The company’s website explains the significance behind the newly-built financial centre’s stature — as NIB’s first branch in the State of Nusalia, the Girikulon Central Office will reflect its full commitment to abide by the principles and practices of the Nusalian Shariah banking and finance model. “We have to create a good first impression, I think when we [drew the] plan that was clear.”, says Mr Al-Allee.

    In the Nusalian Shariah Law, the debtor is accountable for the payment of debt to their creditor. It is the job of NIB to provide its range of Islam-approved Guarantees for that payment in case the debtor cannot meet their obligations to their lender. According to Dame Chloe McLachlan, Bank of Yohannes Chairwoman of Group Sustainability Committee, “Some of the products and services [we will provide] for our clients in the greater Girikulon region include advance payment notes, performance and bid bonds, and of course, Islamic shipping guarantees — they are the bread and butter of our Shariah finance abroad, and they all comply with existing World Assembly resolutions.” According to the bank’s website, its products act as a form of supplement for creditors; that is, “NIB agrees to guarantee a certain amount [of funds] in case the debtor cannot meet their obligations or has fallen into defaults as regards the original terms of service.”

    NIB’s guarantees abide by the Kafala principles of Shariah banking — that is, guardianship of the fund. “We can provide conditional guarantees for our clients in case they fail to pay the agreed financial obligation to their creditor by the specified time limit. Our guarantees also safeguard against them failing to fulfill their jobs as recorded under the trading contract.” In accordance with the Shariah principle, NIB would intervene and satisfy the obligation of its clients to the creditors. “I can assure you that our range of Murabaha, Kafala-Murabaha, and cash-based funding will reflect our position as a responsible Wakil in Nusalia.”

    “It is a statement of purpose of our full introduction into the world of Nusalian Islamic finance.”, Dame Chloe concludes.

    And here back home, Mufti Abdul Hakeem Al-Shafi in the Royal Alexandria Grand Mosque agrees. According to him, “Shariah banking reflects the accumulation of scholarly knowledge and information of the Islamic community. The rules of Shariah guide us. They put a stop to corruption and inequity in the nature of how we gather and accumulate our worldly possessions for the provision of worldly satisfaction.”

    Mufti Al-Shafi continues, “In this the Shariah counsel is absolute — what are our duties to Allah, and how can we carry out these duties?” I must confess that I do not know much about the world of Islam, but I am open-minded to seeing the Bank of Yohannes fully embracing the culture and tradition of the nation it operates in — Islam is a wonderful religion, and multicultural diversity should always be celebrated. In fact, Islam has been the fastest growing religion in the Nineteen Countries since the turn of the century. The rainbow coasts of the Kingdom of Alexandria and the Regency of Lindblum are home to the continent’s fastest growing ethnic and religious minorities.

    And I like it — the time has come for us to embrace our rainbow, twenty-first century future.



    Image



    Figure 1: The Bank of Yohannes has increasingly abandoned the Nineteen Countries to align itself closer to the fast-growing Asian and non-Occidental powerhouses — such as Greater Nifon and Imperial Symphonia to name just two.

    But as we move closer to that twenty-first century future, information technology and the internet will increasingly revolutionise the ways many companies connect with their customers — and NIB is also facing the same situation.

    To prepare itself to meet the twenty-first century digital revolution provided by the Maxtopian world wide web, NIB has designated Mr Husain El-Nasser as its Head of Digital Information. As emerging Muslim majority nation states such as Khataiy continue to expand, he knows the importance of facilitating first-rate Islamic banking services through the digital world — in fact, he believes that it should be prioritised above almost anything else.

    “As a Shariah institution, we are committed to adapt to meet the changing need of our clients — without them we would not exist.” As Head of Digital Information, Mr El-Nasser will personally guide the evolution of NIB’s digital services and administer all new high technology solutions for the company. “I cannot wait to guide NIB as it continues to establish its portfolio and reinforce its presence in Nusalia.” He closed his message by saying that so long as he is in charge, NIB will continue to produce revolutionary Shariah solutions for its clients by keeping up to date with the latest digital marketing trend in Nusalia.

    The Royal Alexandria Times has also learnt that under the bank’s 60.8 billion Quertz russling (548 million NationStates Dollars or Universal Standard Dollars) shares offering, every 70 shares held by existing stockholder of the Bank of Yohannes in Nusalia can be exchanged for 11 new NIB shares. The sign up period will extend from 18 February to 10 March, the bank said. The issue price of each exchanged share will stand at 0.60 NSD with an individual nominal worth of 0.28 NSD and a premium of 0.32 NSD. With 920 million shares set to be released, this reflects a 38 per cent discount as recorded by the State of Nusalia’s national stock market on 31 August.

    Mr Badruddeen Al-Zakaria, designated NIB Chief Credit Officer, says that “Expanding equity and capital for NIB investors is important. It allows the company to invest in growth strategies that would otherwise not be accessible.” The Bank of Yohannes in the State of Nusalia has long offered international trade finance and structured financing solutions to local businesses. Mr Al-Zakaria believes that the rebranding will allow the bank to provide the highest standards in supporting the State of Nusalia’s trade with companies of the Nineteen Countries.

    “As general partner of the Bank of Yohannes, Nusalia and Yohannes Islamic Banking Group is aiming to increase its trade and supply chain for our customers by opening 3,700 new offices over the next eight years. This is our reality — bringing our products and services to the markets of fast-growing Asian and Muslim nations of the future.”

    Mr Al-Zakaria’s reality stands in stark contrast to the reality here back home: in 2017 alone, banks across the Nineteen Countries.have closed nearly 1,000 branches — mostly those in rural areas. 5,000 people have lost their jobs, according to a recent data released by Economic and Demographics Statistics Yohannes. Since the turn of the century, the five big banks — the Bank of Yohannes, Commerce Credit Institute Banking Group, Industrybank, Royal Bank of Alexandria, and the Yohannesian Postbank — have closed more than 4,000 branches across the Nineteen Countries. Thousands of rural communities have been left without easy accessibility to financial transaction and banking.

    And this problem has not been ignored — since 2010, Economic Palace has pressured the five big banks to accelerate their transfer sales of branches to regional financial institutions to increase market competition. In fact, this was one of the conditions imposed on the Bank of Yohannes for its multi-billion Quertz russling bailout following the Gholgoth Financial Crisis in 2012. For instance, the bank was forced to resuscitate the former Vereinigte Investitions- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft (English: United Investment Private Corporation; VIE GmbH), which was originally liquidated in 2011, for its old branches in the Kingdom of Burmecia.

    As of August, the Bank of Yohannes’ website says that it has 9,300 retail locations and ATM stores across the continent of Yohannes — which means it has closed down around 2,000 branches since the World Assembly Condemnation of Automagfreek and the subsequent Gholgoth Financial Crisis in 2012. For her part, Ms Heidemarie Vogelweide, Chair of the Board of Governors of Economic Palace, criticised the closures, believing that many of them — especially those in the rural communities — were not needed to maintain the state of the bank’s books. According to her, “The Bank of Yohannes is a nation state owned enterprise — Economic Palace will intervene if the alternative is widespread financial inaccessibility and exclusion for our rural communities.”



    Image



    Figure 2: “They will not replace us!”, they chanted whilst burning the Qur’an and other books published by Muslim authors. In March this year, hundreds of Yohannes First supporters demonstrated in the capital city of the Principality of Ahlgren, Gjordfontein. The night was kick-started after the event that would be known as the “Thomas Beckett Controversy” happened the day before — where the Archbishop of Dali The Most Reverend Tomas Beckett was spat at by a Wahhabi Muslim migrant from Khataiy. The statue of the Thirty-first Chancellor of the Nineteen Countries, The Right Honourable Max von Papen, can be seen in the background — the old Non-Occidental Exclusion Act 1945 was successfully tabled under his First Social Democratic Executive Council, which banned immigration by East Asians and other Asian ethnicities into the continent of Yohannes.

    Ms Vogelweide says, “Especially since the 2012 Automagfreek-led Gholgoth Financial Crisis, the Bank of Yohannes and other financial service providers have closed their operations in many low density regions. Whilst I agree that there is truth to the explanation given as regards the rise in popularity of internet banking, I still find the fact that thousands of retail centres have been closed down in vulnerable communities to be... it is unwise and does not help financial inclusivity in these communities.”

    The Honourable Ronald Chump, Parliamentary Representative of the New Cleyra Electorate and one of GOP’s nominees for the Office of the Chancellor in the 2018 Parliamentary Election this coming December, has not missed the opportunity to join the action. He said, “People. The fact that big banks close their branches and jobs are lost in the process. They are quite simply unacceptable. Everyday we see more and more immigrants entering our borders. And what do you have from it? People lost their jobs. Our Archbishop was spat at by a Muslim migrant. From Khataiy. You see Ni Hao Ma opening his noodle canteen shops and Yao Ming supermarkets and I frankly think that that is a disgrace. Under my Chancellorship and a GOP executive council led by me, we will have none of these. Under my Chancellorship we will have the best banking infrastructure ever!”

    Sad.

    However, Mr Oskar Schindler of Reichsgau Bergen auf Rügen seems to agree. “I lost my job at the Bank of Yohannes local branch — was head of security. Eight of us; strong team. Can recount attempted robberies over last thirty years with one hand. Branch manager was great — local lass from same college [high school], mind you. Then one day.”

    “Boom.”

    “Fifty-six-day notice. Just like that. Been there for over thirty years. Lifetime job right there. Pension fund gone. Community lost — this great elderly couple always come every afternoon of the weekdays for tea. Said hi. Community brunch every Friday; bible donation youth groups every Sunday. Gone.”

    “Last time I hear they sold the land to some foreign investors from Greater Nifon and Allanea. Look at it now — empty land.”

    “The community. Gone. The Christian Democrats; those wanka’ — they tryin’ replace our Yohannesian Model, our social market economy, with imported neoliberal market experiment from English speaking nation states with failed capitalist economies like the US and the UK. Wee bit disappointed.”

    I agree with Mr Schindler; it’s heartbreaking.

    “Voted for Marion Maréchal-Le Men for Emperor. Goin’ vote for Ronald Chump for Chancellor this comin’ December. He goin’ make Yohannes Great Again. I’m all for it.”

    I hope that Mr Schindler will change his mind come December.

    Whilst it is true that Marion and her “Marioncare” faction within GOP’s rank and file like to flirt with xenophobia-induced politics against Asian and Muslim immigrants, their brand of civic nationalism and their political dose of dog-whistling are still bearable enough to stomach — that is, they know when to stop. Ronald Chump, on the other hand, is another whole can of worms: he is a sexist, racist person — an opportunist, destructive politician to the core. I hope that Chancellor Annabelle Thorndon-Stevensonn and the Christian Democratic Party will keep the executive council come December.

    Ronald Chump is not my Chancellor.

    Company profile: Vereinigte Investitions- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft was one of the largest banks in the Kingdom of Burmecia. Throughout much of its history, United Investment provided commercial banking services for mainly industrial uses and rural customers. Regency of Lindblum-based Bank of Yohannes acquired sole ownership of United Investment in 2011, and what was left of United Investment adopted the Bank of Yohannes blue dove as its logo after the Gholgoth Financial Crisis kick-started by the World Assembly condemnation of Automagfreek in 2012.

    Nusälisches und Yohannesisches Reich Islamische Bankengruppe Offene Handelsgesellschaft is a Nusalian general partnership entity and is an associated company of the Bank of Yohannes. It has a branch in Royal Alexandria — the capital city of the Kingdom of Alexandria in the continent of Yohannes — and Girikulon, one of the largest cities in the State of Nusalia. The bank specialises in commercial banking and Islamic banking products, and is regulated by the Nusalia’ Islamic monetary authority to ensure it abides by the principles of Nusalian Shariah.

    Whenever a Yohannesian bank issues a new mortgage it will produce fictional money out of thin air...but it all happened because of Economic Palace. Gradual neoliberal finance deregulation since 2000 means merchant banks increasingly compete in home mortgage market. Since then their property lending % has gone from barely one-tenth to almost half of their total lending.

World Assembly: Kingdom of Burmecia sees 11 billion NSD investment for infrastructure



    Image
    Claudia A — Opinion Piece Author: ...... Such as Her Majesty the Queen of Ceyesca Caroline the Second, which has grown her government’s stake in Karori Investment Management Corporation by 5.2 per cent since the third quarter of 2016, and the Government of the Arab State of Khataiy, which has acquired its 2.5 per cent stake..........


    Royal Alexandria, 2 September 2018 — The Infrastructure of Nation State Significance Fund announced this morning that it has sent a national innovative idea proposal to the Royal Government of Alexandria, making clear its willingness to go ahead with the Gizamaluke-Grotto Central Suburbs Light Rail and Highway Project for commercial investment after the completion of its viability assessment last week.

    According to Davin Shimshelewitz, Fund Finance and Risk General Manager, the Royal Government of Alexandria has accepted the proposal, looking to speed up core infrastructure investment in a number of areas for its five-year plan to 2023. “As a long-term partner of the government, we believe that the Gizamaluke-Grotto Central Suburbs Light Rail network is an infrastructure project of sufficient scale and significance — that it will be an attractive prospect for further nation state investment in the kingdom,” said Mr Shimshelewitz.

    For its strategy to 2020, the Fund is planning to explore whether a Nation State Significance Fund can fund and deliver the project on a fully commercial basis with the leverage of a collection of select domestic and foreign investors.

    The Royal Alexandria Times can report that Sacrosanct Bank, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sacrosanct Group which is currently responsible for funding the development of multiple infrastructure projects across Yohannes, has been shortlisted as potential partner. With its 16.3 trillion Quertz russling (153 billion NationStates Dollars or Universal Standard Dollars) net assets in the Nineteen Countries, Sacrosanct Bank has long been one of the Bank of Yohannes’ trusted foreign institutional investors. The bank also has extensive experience in infrastructure development and investment outside the continent.

    As Sacrosanct Bank’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Banker, Mark Noble pledged in April this year to help finance the developments of Yohannesian small and medium sized manufacturers for the next fifty years. Another notable foreign investor to the Alexandria-based project is Her Majesty the Queen of Ceyesca Caroline the Second. The information has been confirmed by the Embassy of the Cesque Union of Piedmont, Savoy, and Lombardy this morning. According to the Fund’s website, other potential foreign investors will also be added for its projects in the Kingdom of Alexandria in 2019.

    Mr Shimshelewitz said, “The Infrastructure of Nation State Significance Fund has long observed and understood the Royal Government of Burmecia’s requirements to run its multiple-stage procurement system. We look forward to assisting in the quest to modernising the kingdom’s infrastructure and to set up two-way dialogues with relevant Alexandrian local and regional authorities.”

    Figure 1: Infrastructure of Nation State Significance Fund returns for domestic and foreign investors.

    Meanwhile, on the other side of the continent, the Fund has lodged an application to His Burmecian Majesty’s Government to go ahead with its investment in Burmecian capital markets, said a government insider who declined to reveal their identity as the negotiation is still confidential. According to them, it is not certain whether the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Trade has countersigned the request or whether “Burmecian national authorities would give it the green light.”

    If elected once again into office in December 2018, Chancellor Annabelle Thorndon-Stevensonn has promised to set aside 375.2 trillion Quertz russling (3.4 trillion NSD) for infrastructure investments over the next five years. Currently around 27 per cent of the 8.1 trillion Quertz russling (73 billion NSD) Infrastructure of Nation State Significance Fund is invested in infrastructure of the Bible Belt countries — it has around 1.2 trillion Quertz russling (11 billion NSD) invested in the Kingdom of Burmecia alone. Taking into account the political nature and sensitivity of the procurement system, the Fund is not giving further information about its Burmecian project at this time.

    According to the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Trade’s Company Register, the Fund has also bought a stake in Cleyra-based Karori Investment Management Corporation in the second quarter. Its most recent financial disclosure with the World Assembly’s International Securities and Exchange Commission showcased its co-operative deal with the Bank of Yohannes, where the fund acquired 8,500 shares — valued at around 490.3 million Quertz russling (4.4 million NSD) — from the Karori asset manager’s stock.

    Image
    Figure 2: 90-day bill
    Source: 115th Debates.[Full resolution]
    And the developments have certainly been well received — letting one of the five big banks invest in the Kingdom of Burmecia would inject capital for other deep-pocketed buyers amidst worrying developments in the Bible Belt countries’ equity and bond markets: they are under pressure from rising unemployment, continuing divestment in traditional manufacturing, and increasing defaults by “dirty” industrial concerns.

    In the Small Business Roundtable meeting last month, Dame Chloe McLachlan, Bank of Yohannes’ Chairperson of Group Sustainability Committee, said that should the fund be allowed to invest further in Burmecia, she could identify “some promising opportunities” in B class shares — which are shares of Burmecia-based companies only made available for Burmecian residents and Yohannesian investors — and Quertz russling denominated bonds trading outside the continent.

    Since the catastrophic World Assembly condemnation of Automagfreek in 2012 and the subsequent acceleration of industrial decline in the Nineteen Countries, domestic shares of the citizen sector in the Bible Belt countries have been more attractive for foreign investors when compared with other Yohannesian markets. Dame Chloe also informed other members in the roundtable meeting that “many Burmecian enterprises” still register reasonable green trajectory even as the Burmecian manufacturing industry and its “dirty” economy continue to decline.

    “The election of GOP’s Marion Maréchal-Le Men as the eighteenth Yohannesian Emperor in January has seen the Infrastructure of Nation State Significance Fund focusing its investment mainly in the bible belt and heartland countries to tackle this problem,” said Dame Chloe. “For instance, the fund is switching its focus on tradeable Bible Belt financial assets as stocks in the Kingdom of Burmecia and Grand Duchy of Dali have registered positive green trajectory in Standard and Rich Chloe Jokes Indices for the first time since 2012.”

    Since December last year, the heartland countries have gradually increased their attractiveness to investors both within and without — such as Her Majesty the Queen of Ceyesca Caroline the Second, which has grown her government’s stake in Karori Investment Management Corporation by 5.2 per cent since the third quarter of 2016, and the Government of the Arab State of Khataiy, which has acquired its 2.5 per cent stake in return for investment in Khataiyi tourism industry and the agriculture, metallurgy, industrial concerns and shipping.

    According to Her Royal Highness Sansa Lovebright, Heir Apparent to the Kingdom of Burmecia, since Marion Maréchal-Le Men’s upset victory in January, there have been greater focus placed on the heartland kingdom. “I’ve personally seen it firsthand, and this is good for our people,” said Princess Sansa.

    “It is a positive change that has unfortunately come from such a heavy electoral defeat of the Christian Democratic Party for the Office of the Emperor contest.”

    Since its creation in September last year, the Infrastructure of Nation State Significance Fund has beaten Treasury Bill returns by a quarterly average of 1.51 per cent, which is equal annually to around 448 billion Quertz russling (4 billion NSD).

    Today’s exchange rate: According to the International Securities and Exchange Commission, 1 NationStates Dollar or 1 Universal Standard Dollar (NSD/USD) (World Assembly and International Standard) is enough to buy 111.44 Quertz russling (Yohannesian); that is, a Yohannesian needs to spend at least §111.44 to be able to afford $1 NS.

World Assembly: The Nineteen Countries to work with a twenty-first century Arab power



    Image
    Claudia A — Opinion Piece Author: ...... In May, Baa’thist Souriya Al Assad sold 10 per cent of its stake in Khataiy and Yohannes Carrier to fund the construction of 3 grand mosques and 78 mosques in the Kingdom of Alexandria..........


    Royal Alexandria, 3 September 2018 — The month of September has seen the petroleum tankers of Khataiy and the Nineteen Countries attempting to expand their market share of petroleum trade the International Incidents over.

    The phrase “The twenty-first century Muslim World” is a somewhat inaccurate description of a collection of fast growing nations in the international community: having high birthrates and are very active, rich in natural resources, and with capital to burn. They build mosques and cultural centres the international community over to show that the Islamic Renaissance is all but a certainty — and Khataiy seems determined to be at its forefront. However, from the point of view of a petroleum carrier and shipping owner operator, the land of the Khataiyi presents something more tangible: its abundance of natural resources and fast growing merchant fleets.

    The most active petroleum tanker fleet by International Incidents presence as of 31 August 2018 is arguably that of Khataiy — the most active geopolitical player of the Islamic community this year. Involving itself in many International Incidents and Nation States diplomacy, it is no coincidence that the largest merchant carrier owners in the Ba’athist state are from those nations that have the most to gain from not missing out on the Muslim world’s rise to International Incidents activity. Yohannesian policy analysts have long believed that Khataiy has an output [petroleum per barrel] cost of less than 523.06 Quertz russling (4.7 NationStates Dollar or Universal Standard Dollar). Yohannesian petroleum concerns with the socially-conservative Ba’athist state administer 41 ultra large crude carriers, which collectively take almost 10 per cent of the Nineteen Countries’ “black gold” seagoing capacity in 2018.

    According to His Excellency Malik Abdullah, the Ambassador of Andalusin to the Nineteen Countries, “The State of Monavia, ODECON, and Blackhelm Confederacy — those were the legends. But unfortunately today is 6 September 2018, not 6 September 2009, or 6 September 2010. Today, the Khataiys and the Souriya Al-Assads hold the proverbial non-renewable resources whip. We are dependent on them because they are, and they will be, our source of raw materials for many International Incidents months to come.”

    Although the 41 ultra large crude carriers are run by the Nineteen Countries, they are owned by the government of Khataiy — a government known for its notorious human rights track record against even its own population, and for its funding of “cultural” initiatives the international community over. “They have money to burn: they are investing in thousands of mosques in multiple nations in 2018 alone, by gobbledygook. What they do with those mosques or what they do to their own people; it is none of our concern — we are here [in Khataiy] to inject capital and to cooperate with the local authorities to support Khataiy’s rapid economic growth.”

    According to the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Trade’s Company Register, the government-owned shipping company changed its name to Khataiy and Yohannes Seagoing Merchant Joint Stock Company in December last year. The company, which has been one of the Nineteen Countries’ most active operators of ultra large crude carriers since Khataiy’s rapid rise in April this year, also owns the Baa’thist Souriya Al Assad Shipping General Partnership, which is responsible for 18 tankers with 812,000 deadweight tonnage, including 13 Type 3 bulk chemical carriers. Yohannesian media lambasted the deal, saying that it “represents the Khataiyi regime’s neo-colonial ventures and its love of twenty-first century cultural imperialism.”



    Image



    Figure 1: Khataiyi soldiers arriving in Riyadh during The incursion.

    In May, Baa’thist Souriya Al Assad sold 10 per cent of its stake in Khataiy and Yohannes Carrier to fund the construction of 3 grand mosques and 78 mosques in the Kingdom of Alexandria. Last month, it invested 2 billion Quertz russling (18 million NSD) from its last fiscal earnings for the construction of 157 Madrasas for children under 16 and 3 Islamic Expeditionary and Military Learning Centre in the Regency of Lindblum.

    Senior diplomats of the Embassy of the Nineteen Countries to the Free Kingdom of Allanea have called the news, “The harbinger of what’s to come.”, and called the celebrating Mayor of Greater Halsten “a mad man” for his naivety as regards Khataiy’s brand of Islam, believing that it is “completely incompatible with Yohannesian culture and its multicultural values.” Upon hearing the news that the Government of Khataiy has invested a further 11.1 billion Quertz russling (100 million NSD) to acquire a stake in Alleswerken Joint Stock Company, the largest general trade and shipping enterprise in the continent of Yohannes, “I shook my head and look at the sky — may the Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on us, for we have handed our future independence on a silver platter for immediate, short-term shareholders’ earnings.”

    For her part, Chancellor Annabelle Thorndon-Stevensonn’s policy towards Ba’athist Khataiy is clear: propel the growth of transportation of crude oil to and from the Nineteen Countries come 2019, and we will give the green-light to the opening of various Islamic cultural institutions in not just the Nineteen Countries but also other nations the international community over.

    “We believe in a truly multicultural society — Khataiy will contribute further to the inclusivity and rich diversity of not just our nation but also other trading partners abroad.”

    And the Government of the Arab State of Khataiy has not been slow to seize this opportunity — it has promised to invest a further 11.1 billion Quertz russing (100 million NSD) for new ship construction and further tonnage sales for its market to expand its shipping fleet come 2019. Baa’thist Souriya Al Assad Shipping’s stated company vision and mission is to become the most active operator of large crude carriers the international community over, all under Khataiyi flag, in the years 2019 and 2020. In January, this very ambitious target resulted in the deal made between Khataiy and Yohannes Seagoing Merchant and Alleswerken to transport crude oil from Khataiy “and other friendly Mohameddin nations” to production facilities in the Kingdom of Burmecia.

    The deal, which was originally estimated at 7.9 billion Quertz russling (71 million NSD), is set to run every year until 2023. However, the market looked askance when a later announcement was made by the Government of the Arab State of Khataiy for it to administer Alleswerken’s ultra large crude carrier operation in the Khataiyi land and its “fully-converted overseas territories”; in return, the Yohannesian general trade company acquired a stake in Khataiyi bulk cargo concerns to the non-Occidental nations — such as the rising power Greater Nifon. “The merchant shipping trade-off allows both enterprises to enter their respective markets at the expense of the local owners, and without their say, who were already operating in those spaces.”, says Nineteen Countries Maritime Union spokesperson Ms Alwina Gebhardt.

    “This is a disgrace and we demand for it to stop immediately.”

    The first benefit that can be had from the agreement is quite clear, in that Alleswerken will operate the Khataiyi-owned, newly-built 300,000 deadweight Abdul Jabbaar El-Arafat to handle Yohannesian petroleum in Burmecia Offshore Facility in January next year for a “serious” contractor in the Orient. “With member states of the International Freedom Coalition and Santiago Anti-Communist Treaty Organisation expanding day by day, and imposing their rules upon those they disagree with, that is probably where the most earnings would be, again.”, says Her Excellency Claudia Schönbein, the Ambassador of the Nineteen Countries to the United States of Devonta.

    “And where there are earnings to be had, Bank of Yohannes funding will go there.”

    The agreement was ironically signed just before Khataiy announced its 2.5 per cent new stake of Karori Investment Management Corporation, in return for Yohannesian investment in Khataiyi tourism industry and the agriculture, metallurgy, shipping and industrial concerns.

    Today’s exchange rate: According to the International Securities and Exchange Commission, 1 NationStates Dollar or 1 Universal Standard Dollar (NSD/USD) (World Assembly and International Standard) is enough to buy 111.28 Quertz russling (Yohannesian); that is, a Yohannesian needs to spend at least §111.28 to be able to afford $1 NS.

World Assembly: Hemen Technologies to expand continental presence come 2019



    Image
    Claudia A — Opinion Piece Author: ...... Originally founded in 1991 to digitise mapping and form pioneering in-car navigation solutions, over the next three decades, Hemen built a legacy in mapping technology. Today, the company is known for its living three-dimensional maps which showcase layers of information and insights..........


    Royal Alexandria, 4 September 2018 — The second lowest home-ownership rates since the days of the Founding Monarchs; 2.7 million kids living in households below minimum acceptable community standard and 7.4 million people losing their manufacturing jobs; Chief Executive Officers of Yohannesian corporations earning as much as 73 times the salaries of the average Martin the middle class manager and Hilda the middle class clerk — it appears we are facing a wee existential crisis in this nation. Increasingly since the turn of the century, creeping nationwide wealth disparity has propelled our economists and politicians to put some big policy papers on the proverbial legislative table.

    Do we need to raise the superannuation withdrawal age, or should we increase value-added tax for goods and services consumed in the Nineteen Countries instead? Even more extreme, but gaining traction on both sides of the aisle — do we need universal higher education to support the upskilling of the future generation? Or is the solution is, as many Christian Democrats would want you to believe, less government intervention and more deregulation — not the opposite?

    Where do we go from here?

    According to last year’s November Parliamentary Analysis Archive, there were 1,091,099 micro, small and medium sized enterprises which export their goods and services from the Nineteen Countries. Of these, 17,912 enterprises registered total business revenues of 5.5 billion Quertz russling (50 million NationStates Dollars or Universal Standard Dollars) and over; almost half dealing directly or indirectly in the chemical development, material engineering, and structural research and development industries. These businesses accounted for almost a third of total goods and services exported for the year.

    The news was met with yet more questions on both sides of parliament’s chamber — how do we spread the wealth more equally for small “mum and dad” businesses from the multi-billion big corporates? Whilst GOP and the Christian Democrats wrestle over and debate day by day on how the nation should address these seemingly unsolvable questions, the Nineteen Countries’ oldest financial institution has been moving one step ahead to create a new relationship with yet another homebrand foreign-based company.

    Hemen Technologies, a Nusalian company which provides navigation solution software for the automotive, enterprise, wireless and personal navigation industries, has struck a partnership with the Bank of Yohannes to secure 8.3 billion Quertz russling (75 million NSD) in investment from the “Marioncare” Industrial Care and Revitalisation Fund. The capital injection is set to be made just five months after the structural building modelling company won a competitive tender to implement a fleet management system and optimised routing and navigation reporting regime across more than 1,000 offices in the Regency of Lindblum, in what has been described as one of the most innovative commercial navigation and traffic management contracts to be handled by a foreign-based company in the continent of Yohannes.

    Hemen Technologies is planning to use the capital injection from the seventh largest and fastest growing wealth fund in the Nineteen Countries to expand further in northwestern Lindblum and into other geographical markets in the continent next year. The company’s branch operation in the northern mainland, which is set to enter neighbouring Cederstrom next year, has set goals to double its employee numbers from 1,800 to 3,600 people over the next two years, and to open two offices in the city of Dagmar, home to the continent’s second-largest port of trade.

Today, the Global Economics and Trade index-listed company is known for its living three-dimensional maps which showcase layers of information and insights. Hemen Technologies operations can be found in more than ten nations outside the continent — “From the provision of location data, mapping and related services to individuals and companies, the company captures location content such as road networks, buildings, parks, and traffic patterns and agglomerate them as solutions for our clients.”, says Ms Natascha Hildebrandt, Fund Portfolio Completion General Manager.

    And it seems the State of Nusalia’s homebrand company has timed its large scale entry into the Nineteen Countries market well.

    Economic and Demographics Statistics Yohannes data in 2017 showed that the latest valuation of domestic demand in structural building modelling market in the Nineteen Countries stood roughly at 1.1 billion NSD. “It is forecast to grow by 2.1 billion NSD come 2022, which equates to a compound annual growth rate of just below 16 per cent over five years.”, says Dr Fat’hiyaa el-Rasheed, Economic Palace Chief Economist. Hemen’s range of structural building modelling products are self-regulating three-dimensional model based systems engineering that allow accredited engineers, construction managers and architectural technologists to more effectively manage, build, and design infrastructure building projects and software solutions.

    According to Ms Daniela Hänel, Greater Halsten Infrastructure Authority Managing Director, “One of the important benefits of signing up with Hemen Technologies’ wide range of products is that they give multiple contractors from different locations the ability to access, update and share their centralised project reports. The typical project and engineering design process depends mostly on two-dimensional draftings. With Hemen you can use three-dimensional solutions and go beyond even that to supplement it with further four-dimensional period and five-dimensional costing options.”

    Because of these apparent benefits, Hemen Technologies and other companies like it have registered astounding growth in popularity amongst major end-use sector players since 2014. Some other benefits include better net profit and cost ratio and reduced time and spending allocation. Such new initiatives as the Infrastructure of Nation State Significance Programme mean increasing number of construction activities will be had until 2025, and increasing consumer awareness of Hemen Technologies and other structural building modelling providers will further drive demand growth. However, their high initial investment prerequisites mean growth potential has been restrained since 2013, and other such things as high human capital and technical training requirements further add to delay in their widespread adoption by many small and medium sized enterprises. The public sector has nonetheless increasingly led the way since 2010, and “big corporates” such as the Bank of Yohannes, Halstenmetall and VMK are trailing not far behind.

    Ms Hänel concludes, “For instance, our partnership with Hemen Technologies will include such local government services as spatial and geographic data system planning and specifications for infrastructure construction, which encompass number and state of structural building components — they will abide by the latest Health and Safety Amendment Act 1971 and relevant World Assembly resolutions.”

    Since the turn of the century, structural building software solutions have increasingly been used by government agencies and citizen sector players who design, build, and manage things that drive the nation’s economic growth: taxpayer-funded bridges, highways and roads; ratepayer-funded hydrothermal and wind energy facilities; and ports of trade and railways for our people and thriving businesses across the continent.

    More willingness by the executive council of the day to intervene by way of statutes and bylaws to embrace these technologies mean demand for infrastructure modelling solutions will continue to grow well until 2023. And with the election of Marion Maréchal-Le Men as Emperor in January, the incoming parliamentary election this December, and, for these reasons, the much higher political capital to be had from adopting a more interventionist economic policy vis-à-vis infrastructure expansion for the benefit of “mum and dad business concerns”, it seems that innovative foreign-based companies such as Hemen Technologies have entered the Nineteen Countries market at just the right time.

    Today’s exchange rate: According to the International Securities and Exchange Commission, 1 NationStates Dollar or 1 Universal Standard Dollar (NSD/USD) (World Assembly and International Standard) is enough to buy 110.56 Quertz russling (Yohannesian); that is, a Yohannesian needs to spend at least §110.56 to be able to afford $1 NS.

World Assembly: 855 million NSD in additional investment for students with special educational needs and disabilities



    Image
    Claudia A — Opinion Piece Author: ...... Budget Reform 2017, although generally received well, resulted in reduced general spending in favour of more targeted, focused spending. Whilst special attention paid to high achieving students is great, it can put pressure on funding for the less fortunate or those affected by circumstances not of their own making..........


    Royal Alexandria, 4 September 2018 — A publication by the Ministry of Education this morning highlighted that subnational government authorities will receive up to 95.2 billion Quertz russling (855 million NationStates Dollars or Universal Standard Dollars) in supplementary assistance starting next month. The supplementary funding is set to provide additional classroom spaces and “twenty-first century” apparatus for students with disabilities and special learning conditions (DSLC). The report concluded by saying, “That this supplementary funding will provide more accessibility and educational options for parents of DSLC students over the five-year period ending FY 2023.”

    The news followed prior executive council target in March this year, where it pledged to create 822.5 billion Quertz russling (7.4 billion NSD) in extra funding for the construction of 231,000 Decile 6 to Decile 10 primary school and college[Note 1] seats, adding to the 2.3 million spaces that have been made available since 2014. The report’s publication also came with the release of another “unsettling” report by the Ministry of Education, which showed that roughly 70 per cent of new classroom spaces created since 2016 have been located in “high-income neighbourhoods” and “established suburbs.”

    The supplementary funding will add to the already existing 266.4 billion Quertz russling (2.4 billion NSD) in investment announced last year for the provision of safe learning space and easy access to education for students with disabilities and special learning conditions. The Ministry of Education has estimated that the extra funding can potentially make up to 4,200 more learning spaces and specialised care for DSLC students, which would include such things as rooms “with interactive equipment and a relaxed pace of play” and “an all inclusive playground.”

    The supplementary spending is the latest in a package of 24.3 trillion Quertz russling (218.5 billion NSD) in investment to be earmarked for the Universal Education Authority by the Thirty-sixth Christian Democratic Executive Council over the five-year period to 2023. According to the Ministry website, the aim is to provide easy access to high quality learning space for all Yohannesian children, irrespective of their conditions, ethnicity, and household background. According to Her Majesty Marion Maréchal-Le Men the eighteenth Yohannesian Emperor, “Our kids come first. When I was elected into office I made the future of Yohannesian children my number one priority. I want to make sure that they can reach their full potential. I know that Chancellor Annabelle Thorndon-Stevensonn will agree with me.”

    The Honourable Ferdinand Goethe, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of Lifelong and Vocational Education, agrees, “Every mother and father wants to have the best education for their children. They want to access high quality state and state integrated schools for their children. They want to know that our schools and teachers can meet the learning needs of their children, and support their development towards success. They want their children to reach their full potentials.” The Minister believes that the additional investment will result in the construction of hundreds of new, high quality schools for children across the continent — and DSLC students will not be left out too. In fact, this funding will ensure that their needs are being met.

    The investment will boost existing commitment for the provision of new school places by 366.3 billion Quertz russling (3.3 billion NSD), following on the pledge of 266.4 billion Quertz russling (2.4 billion NSD) in investment made last year.

    Under the scheme, more than one-third of the Nineteen Countries’ local and regional governments will receive up to 290 million Quertz russling (2.7 million NSD). This supplementary funding will be targeted towards not just the provision of smaller college[Note 1] classrooms but also better educational facilities and playgrounds for younger DSLC students. Every subnational governing authority will be able to collect 144.3 million Quertz russling (1.3 million NSD) at the minimum, with higher allocation to be made according to decile ranking and school zone density.

    Besides extra funding, the publication by the Ministry also highlighted a proposal to revamp the whole school decile ranking, which has been used by the Universal Education Authority since the turn of the century. “It is outdated; a leftover from the previous century, and frankly it’s time to change the whole system. For one, it doesn’t take into account the much higher immigration numbers we have seen since 1996. And two, it doesn’t take into account the tendency of many Yohannesian cities these days to ‘spread out’ rather than ‘go up’.”, says The Honourable Nickel Fallage, Chairperson of the Exiting International Incidents and Nation State Neutrality Select Committee. The report showed that 74 per cent of all primary schools and colleges created in the last fiscal year were those of Decile 7 to Decile 10 — that is, schools in “good” to “excellent” high-income neighbourhoods.



    Image



    Figure 1: The latest Ardenfontein-Löfgren political poll (31 August 2018) showed that over 70 per cent of Yohannesians believe the education and future learning of their children to be some of the most important issues facing this nation.

    “The Christian Democratic Party has increased funding for education since 2014 — bollocks, I say.”

    Ms Xie Bae Ling, a spokesperson for the Asian Yohannesian Foundation, likes the announcement. She said, “The Asian Yohannesian Foundation is very happy to hear the news from the Ministry of Education concerning the increase in capital spending for the provision of extra places and the improvement of facilities in schools for all children regardless of circumstances, ethnicity, and household background. We welcome the possibility of seeing more investment put towards our low-income neighbourhoods.”

    Many Asian Yohannesians are first and second generation immigrants and thus live in low-income neighbourhoods. I personally like the Asian Yohannesian Foundation — they are non partisan, which requires extraordinary willpower to achieve considering how embarrassing the GOP can be at times as regards their anti-Asian dog-whistling Southern Strategy.

    Ms Bae Ling continued, “Students of Asian immigrant background are not eligible for free university education, even though they are permanent residents of the Nineteen Countries, nor are they eligible for student loan and student allowance programmes because they are not citizens.” She concluded by informing me of a recent survey by the University of Yohannes which indicated that Asian students are often ranked last in school admission application priorities to make way for “Yohannesian-born” students — this includes Asian DLSC students. “We welcome this news as one step forward in the right direction to improving the conditions of our immigrant children in the Nineteen Countries.”

    I agree with Ms Bae Ling. Asian immigrants have children with special needs and disabilities too — many who arrived here with their parents, and are for that reason not eligible to apply for many of the extra services available for Yohannesian-born children with disabilities.

    Budget Reform 2017, although generally received well, resulted in reduced general spending in favour of more targeted, focused spending. Whilst the special attention paid to high achieving students is great, it can put pressure on funding for the less fortunate or those affected by circumstances not of their own making. For that reason, it is imperative that this recent announcement will make an actual impact on children with special educational needs and disabilities. The Christian Democratic Party’s record in this area has been found wanting, if not embarrassing to date — only with the 2018 Electoral College election over were they finally willing to acknowledge their less-than-stellar management of the education sector.

    Ms Heidi Steinbach, President of Nineteen Countries Parent-Teacher-Student Association (NCPTS), says, “We look forward to better provision for the inclusive needs of students with special circumstances and disabilities. Mainstream schools have worked hard to serve the educational needs of our children and for them to reach their full potentials. But we can always do better — and for that reason, we would like to commend Chancellor Annabelle Thorndon-Stevensonn and Her Majesty the Yohannesian Emperor Marion Maréchal-Le Men for their bipartisan compromise.

    Although primary and secondary institutions must prioritise accessibility and inclusivity, the latest Economic and Demographics Statistics Yohannes report showed that this has not always been the case. According to Ms Steinbach, “Some schools have simply been underfunded to the extent that their specialist learning provisions have been found wanting; they cannot provide a peaceful atmosphere for children with hearing issues, for instance. I know that this has been the case with one particular school in Royal Alexandria. Another school in Halsten does not have acceptable toilets and changing facilities for students requiring specialist care. That is unacceptable and we must surely do something!” The organisation hopes that the recently announced supplementary funding will add to the already existing 266.4 billion Quertz russling (2.4 billion NSD) committed last year to help make a real difference to the lives of neglected students across the nation.

    The NCTPS and other organisations like it have a role to play in reviewing the effectiveness of this latest increase in funding — and without strategic cooperation with local and regional governments and other educational organisations to ensure that their voices are being heard, no extra increase in funding will truly make an impact on the ground. Such initiatives as the latest announcement by the Ministry built on not just the Executive Council but also the community’s willingness to better the lives of students in special circumstances — from the provision of targeted education spending to assisting in the quest to provide first-world education for our students by understanding and meeting their individual needs.

    Earlier this year, the Executive Council kick-started a working group to find better ways of allocating existing fund so that Universal Education Authority can produce better results for schoolchildren across the nation. The committee would review such things as how existing schemes are administered and which group of students would be better targeted to produce the best long-term results.

    The Executive Council is planning to invest more than 24.3 trillion Quertz russling (218.5 billion NSD) for state and state integrated schools by 2023. The 95.2 billion Quertz russling (855 million NSD) announced this morning includes both fundamental need and special care allocations over the five-year-period, which are expected to produce 684,000 new learning spaces. These learning spaces raised and improved upon the everyday sacrifice and dedication of hard-working teachers across the nation, and the success of the Thirty-sixth Christian Democratic Executive Council’s “Budget Reform” since 2017 — resulting in over 2.3 million new learning spaces since 2014. At least 5.4 million more students are now in Decile 6 to Decile 10-ranked primary schools and colleges in comparison to 2014. Spending in education for children in special circumstances and disabilities has so far reached 7.6 trillion Quertz russling (68.1 billion NSD) this year — which as a percentage of overall budget is the highest to be committed so far by any executive council since the 2012 Financial Crisis.

    Political analysts and pundits believe that the announcement was made strategically — the latest Ardenfontein-Löfgren political poll showed that over 70 per cent of Yohannesians believe the education and future learning of their children to be some of the most important issues facing this nation. This puts the issue in third place, just behind nation state neutrality and immigration.

    According to Ms Irene Pollmächer, “The funding is a way for Chancellor Annabelle Thorndon-Stevensonn and the Thirty-sixth Christian Democratic Executive Council to say, ‘Look. We are finally acknowledging that schools overcrowding is real and the education sector has been increasingly neglected since 2010. What Marion Maréchal-Le Men said in the January Electoral College election was true. So now, please, vote for us in December and we will fix these problems and show you that we can change.’ It is pretty smart actually — that they actually have Marion’s backing for this whole thing.”

    “That way, the voters are finally seeing the Christian Democratic Party’s willingness to find and reach for the middle, bipartisan ground.”

    I hope that Ms Pollmächer is right. Here’s hoping that this and other compromise solutions along similar bipartisan ground might just do the trick come December.

    Anything but Ronald Chump for Chancellor.

    Note 1: In the Nineteen Countries, the word “college” refers to a secondary or high school.

    Organisation profile: Asian Yohannesian Foundation is a non-partisan, non-profit forum founded in 2001 to represent Asian Yohannesians in the Nineteen Countries. It works with some of the nation’s most important academics, business leaders, and diplomats to positively portray Asian cultures in the continent of Yohannes. The Foundation regularly hosts cultural and educational events in Dagmar, the capital city of the Democratic Republic of Cederstrom.

    Nineteen Countries Parent-Teacher-Student Association is a confederation of individual parent-teacher associations and cultural groups in the Nineteen Countries. The governing body of the association comprises civil servants and concerned parents across the nation. It is primarily a grass-roots organisation of volunteers and dedicated mothers and fathers.

    Today’s exchange rate: According to the International Securities and Exchange Commission, 1 NationStates Dollar or 1 Universal Standard Dollar (NSD/USD) (World Assembly and International Standard) is enough to buy 111.01 Quertz russling (Yohannesian); that is, a Yohannesian needs to spend at least §111.01 to be able to afford $1 NS.

    Universal Education Authority is not competitive; finally can see why our rates jump yearly has always been so high. Stop leeching off ratepayers so much that you cant even fund our children properly. Why should we pay for Asian immigrants children to have good education. Look after our own first.

    Universal Education Authority will never win with ratepayers. taxpayers complain so they shift responsibilities to local and regional governments. Ratepayers compalin they then must shift responsibilities to national governments or executive council. want good educaton? be prepared to pay for it. dont like paying for nation state costs? then be prepared to accept lower quality facilities. put your money where your mouth is and pay up or shut up and stop complaining.

SPECTER INSTITUTE, PAVING THE WAY FOR A SAFER TOMMOROW

Greetings and salutations!
We at the Institute are proud to be involved with your bank! Recent financial troubles and the cessation of government funding have forced us to find other ways of getting funds, and it seems as if we have found the perfect bank to find some! Indeed, we hope to see ourselves successful in our projects once we are able to secure funds from the prestigious Bank of Yohannes!

Hope to get a Reply!

KEY ACCEPTED, LOCK OPENED
From the Containment Foundation of Ruskland-Preuben, Encryption Diamond
Listen here, between you and me, and all the people in between, this electronic letter never existed, nor will it ever be thought about. Now, on to business. We require a high amount of cash as government funding of us has been lowered as said in our dummy letter sent to you, and containment is getting ever harder as experienced staff leave due to lesser salaries.

Now, you may be thinking, “containment?”. Yes, containment, of what you may ask, well, we call them OOI, or Objects of Interest. And they are dangerous, and to get people to observe and contain them takes a lot of time and effort, and money. And how dangerous you may ask, well, we have a spray can under constant radiation exposure to prevent it from puncturing, and it somehow contains enough antimatter to wipe the entire Solar System. Yeah, that kind of dangerous.

Now, we need the funds and we need them now. A splinter group has formed, and there’s this bugger that’s been investigating us, and we need the money to counter them and prevent any sort of apocalyptic scenario.

World Assembly: RRA to meet rail infrastructure target come FY 2023-24



    Image
    Claudia A — Opinion Piece Author: ...... The report reiterated the Economic Palace’s forecast that RRA’s growth will continue to rise faster than the economy... with our ongoing capital partnership with the Bank of Yohannes, we are focused on meeting the needs of the rate and taxpayers..........


    Royal Alexandria, 1 October 2018 — In 2017, the Realm Railroad Administration (RRA) commissioned the Energy and Environmental Research Centre (EERC) to review the potential long-term baseline environmental and financial liabilities in relation to the provision of passenger ground service in roading and railway networks. The study was undertaken between January and June 2017 across the continent of Yohannes, using public transportation information for the fiscal year starting July 2016 and ending June 2017. The agency is planning to use this information to assess future schemes with the goal of increasing land transportation system performance.

    The RRA believed that the report was sorely needed. For instance, at the time the report was compiled, up to a quarter of the Nineteen Countries’ non-Realm Motorway road network — especially those located within the jurisdiction of rural regional authorities — had an unsealed finish. The resulting high maintenance of uncompleted chipsealing could potentially result in more than three times higher greenhouse gas emissions in comparison to sealed paved surfaces over the 20-year period ending 2037. This rate would increase even higher with additional things included, such as emissions produced by vehicles using the paved areas.

    In terms of public transportation by rail — taking into account rail infrastructure, their vehicles and related fuel consumption — fuel and electricity consumption for operation is the most important cause of higher energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, with rail infrastructure taking second place and railway vehicle maintenance and production taking last place. For railway freight (i.e. commodities and merchandise goods and cargo) transport, rail infrastructure is the most important cause of higher energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.

    Traditional steel rails for the construction of new networks have been responsible for more than one-third of the Nineteen Countries’ long-term greenhouse gas emissions and higher energy consumption in rail infrastructure since the turn of the century. The report found that the sourcing of new materials from better best practice factories in large heavy industrial nations such as Greater Nifon would only moderately reduce long-term emissions and energy consumption for rail tracks. For that reason, if the Executive Council wants to meet stricter World Assembly requirements, new, non-traditional alternative sources of steel rails must be found.

    Strategic investments in infrastructure use up a large amount of resources. The report believed that to more effectively reap the benefits from these investment projects, the Executive Council must ensure infrastructure and networks are maintained and revitalised to combat normal wear and aging damage — that is, maintenance and revitalisations will affect the efficiency and performance of the infrastructure (i.e. reducing delay costs). For a given level of network usage, public infrastructure managers must try to prevent unnecessary whole life maintenance and revitalisation costs. To meet the life cycle asset management requirements set by relevant local authorities, public infrastructure managers must also judge relevant intertemporal decision-making and to treat infrastructure management as input substitutes — that is, the decision to set aside current consumption in order to consume in future in maintaining and revitalising existing infrastructure.



    Image



    Figure 1: Railway network expansion and improvement vis-à-vis patronage.[Full resolution]

    The report further added that any new cost minimising plan by local and regional governments must take into account account maintenance costs for existing assets that would increase over time; that is, the importance of revitalising the assets before maintenance cost levels increase because of lacking regular maintenance and revitalisation (e.g. lack of coverage, service delay). With current appropriation level as set by parliament, ideally periodical revitalisation should be started with high maintenance revitalisations succeeded by low maintenance revitalisations. Revitalisation spending should take at least one third of the total infrastructure maintenance spending by the Executive Council towards local and regional levels.

    Despite being limited by the need to curtail spending in the face of lower growth forecasts, so far the Executive Council has tried to follow at least one of the report’s recommendations — almost 29,000 new long-distance high-speed trains are to enter service over the five-year period ending FY 2023-4. This is equal to more than half of the Nineteen Countries’ high-speed electric multiple-unit vehicle fleet in 2016. This long-term rolling stock procurement can only be realised because of external factors such as more access to finance and suppliers since 2017 (e.g. Arthropol, Greater Nifon), lower energy and manufacturing costs (e.g. Khataiy), better return rate and franchise standards (e.g. Nusalia), and newer train technologies resulting in better operation efficiency (e.g. cost-effectiveness, output to input ratio) in comparison to older legacy systems.

    RRA Chief Executive Mr Matthäus Hegewald briefly touched on the issue of project costs in his interview for The Realm News’ current affairs programme The Nations. He noted that the agency’s recent deal with Yohannesian Railways Joint Stock Company was one example of the public sector’s increasing focus on working closer with the citizen sector to prevent immaturely planned projects. “This would hopefully prevent cost overrun. Working closely together with reputable multinational companies such as the Tairinese rolling stock manufacturer Linimo Railworks, RRA is planning to expand [our] existing rail network connecting major conurbations in the heartland region — the first time that a foreign infrastructure company would be involved in the Kingdom of Burmecia’s rail service.”

    Extending from central Burmecia to the borders of Dali, the 1,000-kilometre Südostburmecien railway network is projected to service up to 4.7 million passengers every month. “This is part of the RRA’s commitment to meet the Executive Council’s long-term infrastructure of nation state significance programme.” According to the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Trade, RRA partner operators from the citizen sector will invest 470 billion NationStates Dollars over the next 15 years to gradually replace rolling stock and offer wireless local area networking and other services for current and future patrons. The funding will also be directed for miscellaneous projects set to benefit taxpayers and increase patronage — for instance, expanding parking spaces for cars and bicycles for busy stations and creating new ones for growing stations.

    “As recorded by our September board meetings and minutes, ideally we want to deliver and put into service railway vehicle designs with long-term horizon that approach or extend the limit of what we can deliver as an Executive Council agency for the conveyance of passengers and goods by railways. Additionally, whenever Possible, we will to try to meet the Executive Council’s high-level and wider, long-term strategic objectives of reducing infrastructure costs and carbon emissions slowly over the years whilst maintaining capacity and customer satisfaction. We have to be realistic — there will be some failures along the way, but we are confident that we can meet some of these targets.”

    “The report reiterated the Economic Palace’s forecast that RRA’s growth will continue to rise faster than the economy,” Hegewald concluded. “With our ongoing capital partnership with the Bank of Yohannes, we are focused on meeting the needs of the rate and taxpayers. The Yohannesian economy may not be growing as fast as was originally predicted by the Economic Palace’s 2017 quarterly forecasts, but we still believe in the overall stability of the Nineteen Countries economy come FY 2019-20.”

    Today’s exchange rate: According to the International Securities and Exchange Commission, 1 NationStates Dollar or 1 Universal Standard Dollar (NSD/USD) (World Assembly and International Standard) is enough to buy 113.84 Quertz russling (Yohannesian); that is, a Yohannesian needs to spend at least §113.84 to be able to afford $1 NS.

World Assembly: New opening in Undarat and more closing in Yohannes



    Image
    Claudia A — Opinion Piece Author: ...... According to Halsten University senior lecturer Dr Harvard Hergenröther, branch productivity benchmarking can be done in two different ways: by measuring the range of financial products and services available, and evaluating the provision of financial intermediation as well as the management of risk..........


    Royal Alexandria, 3 October 2018 — Following a confirmation of approval by the Federal Government of the United States of Undarat this morning, the Bank of Yohannes has finally been given the green light to establish six fully operational branches in the United States of Undarat. Four will be located in Undarat City, one in San Mateo and another in Clinhurst, according to a report from the Embassy of the United States of Undarat — confirming old rumours inside the beltway last year that the Bank of Yohannes had been planning to establish its retail presence in Eastern Undarat since 2016.

    The six locations will give the Nineteen Countries’ largest bank its first retail branches in Undarat. Already governing members of the bank have begun to draw up its business plan and concentrate on implementing its policy in Undarat, with 140 senior executives set to be flown into Undarat City to meet their Undaratian counterparts next week. They will start a general discussion in the field of commercial and investment banking as well as asset management in relation to the bank’s operation in Undarat’s major conurbations.

    With permission from the Federal Government of Undarat, Sir Matthew Gilligan, Bank of Yohannes’ group chairman, has also confirmed before members of the senior press gallery this morning that the Bank of Yohannes is planning to eventually have 100 branches across the United States of Undarat by 2025, even as the bank continues to close down its branches in many rural regions across the Nineteen Countries. Sir Matthew did not mention the planned location of the new branches, although he did make a point by saying that the company will make its introduction into the lucrative United States market by first entering Undarat’s high density eastern conurbations, where most of the opportunities for foreign banks are.

    The Bank of Yohannes’ retail operations in Undarat have been limited to only seven automated teller machines since 2015 — one in Undarat Capital Airport, two in Copper City, and four in Undarat City. “Over the next five years, we’re intending to build our community presence and revitalise the Bank of Yohannes brand in Undarat from the ground up”, Ms Tanja Hönigswald, designated president and chief executive officer of the Bank of Yohannes United States of Undarat General Partnership, said yesterday. She added that retail customers and commercial banking clients in Eastern Undarat will benefit from the presence of a new service provider.

    The Ambassador of the Realm of Yohannes to the United States of Undarat will officiate the opening ceremony of all six branch locations, which are expected to open their doors to customers by March next year. The Bank of Yohannes’ website said that this reflects the company’s commitment to promote transnational finance growth and support community banking in retail for families. “We’re an international bank that strives to follow the rules of the world’s governing body — the World Assembly — by complying fully with passed WA resolutions.”



    Image



    Figure 1: The decline of branch banking vis-à-vis mobile banking in Yohannes the continent.[Full resolution]

    The Bank of Yohannes’ latest announcement coincides well with the release of a report by the Nineteen Countries Bankers’ Association which analysed the performance of banking branch sales activities on the continent of Yohannes. Since the turn of the century, the ‘Big Five’ in Yohannesian banking — the Bank of Yohannes, Commerce Credit Institute Banking Group, Industrybank, Royal Bank of Alexandria, and the Yohannesian Postbank — have traditionally led the way in implementing new ways to improve operating efficiency. However, such a standardised system has yet to be devised to benchmark their branch and customer service points of contact operations.

    “Faced with ever increasing competition and continuing decline in branch customer retention, we’ve decided to support the NCBA’s initiative to fund a working group comprising respected academic professionals and senior industry experts”, Dame Chloe McLachlan, Bank of Yohannes’ chairwoman of group sustainability committee, said in an interview. “The working group will study the performance of our branch sales activities in the Nineteen Countries”

    Studies relating to the assessment of bank branch efficiency has thus far been done on an ad hoc basis. Dame Chloe believes that by extending the scope of the study and cooperating with the rest of the ‘Big Five’, the working group will be able to more effectively increase the accuracy of its findings, which will explore such topics as low branch performance and what are the ideal branch attributes in an innovative twenty-first century banking industry. To successfully bring about the research, senior management of the bank will also be carrying its own independent analysis report in close collaboration with researchers of the School of Economics and Finance at Halsten University.

    According to Halsten University senior lecturer Dr Harvard Hergenröther, branch productivity benchmarking can be done in two different ways: by measuring the range of financial products and services available, and evaluating the provision of financial intermediation as well as the management of risk. “All across the Nineteen Countries, we can measure bank and branch performance and model bank branch profitability and effectiveness by using these data.”

    At a parliamentary select committee hearing in April, the Bank of Yohannes research team believed that their most significant source of expenses is the operational inputs used to provide financial products and services. A publication by the Office of Economic Analysis and Forecast last month had seemed to support their statement: it found that these costs had ranged from 40 to 50 per cent of yearly total expenses in 2016 alone, involving mostly personnel, rent and supplies. The Bank of Yohannes has said nothing publicly about any studies pertaining to this topic, but The Royal Alexandria Times has learnt from an inside source that the NCBA study will explore possible ways to improve the bank’s branch performance — in the Nineteen Countries and outside the continent of Yohannes — by examining two types of efficiencies.

    The first, profit efficiency, relates to financial intermediation and the identification, evaluation, and prioritisation of risks. It explores the availability of financial products and services and what steps can be taken to reduce operational inputs whilst increasing the number of products and services and their profitability for shareholders of the bank. In contrast, operational efficiency is important mainly for stakeholders of the bank — for instance, the assistant manager of a new branch in Undarat. In both areas of study, the working group will mainly focus on such variables as returns on investment and bank fees as well as interest costs and revenues.

    Since the electoral victory of Marion Maréchal-Le Men, the GOP has politically committed itself to ensure “that such an interindustry working group will be created.” Meanwhile, still reeling from its electoral college presidential defeat at the hands of Marion Maréchal-Le Men’s GOP, the Christian Democratic Party is more than willing to support the industry, thus forming the political consensus required from both sides of the aisle to go ahead with the comprehensive committee report.

    “We will endeavour to comply with the committee’s report by providing the information required for it to release its findings”, said three senior employees of the bank who attended the hearing. “They will include such things as intermediation growth in relation to credit lines and deposits as well as collection and lending margin efficiency.”

    Despite its large scale growth outside the Nineteen Countries in 2018 — the highest seen since 2011 — the Bank of Yohannes has continued to shut down branches in rural areas across the Yohannesian continent. “The parliamentary select committee will touch on this issue next week”, The Honourable Saul Ryan, Speaker of the 115th Nineteen Countries Parliament, said in an The Realm News interview.

    “People feeling better about our economy. Jobs are up and businesses are booming. Unemployment forecast has been good. But look, at the end of the day, even though we’ve got a very popular Yohannesian Emperor running the show, we’ve got to remember that business profit must go hand in hand with business obligation to support our community. And well, to be a wee bit honest with you, the banks have more or less abandoned heartland Yohannesians and the bible belt region.”

    “The GOP — we will fight for that. We will fight for business profit to go hand in hand with their responsibility to support our rural communities.”

    Today’s exchange rate: According to the International Securities and Exchange Commission, 1 NationStates Dollar or 1 Universal Standard Dollar (NSD/USD) (World Assembly and International Standard) is enough to buy 113.49 Quertz russling (Yohannesian); that is, a Yohannesian needs to spend at least §113.49 to be able to afford $1 NS.

Withdrawal of poll options


As reviewed and approved before the
115th Nineteen Countries Parliament
17 November 2018

Dear members of Global Economics and Trade,

The purpose of this letter is to inform you that senior management of the Bank of Yohannes has decided to withdraw the previously available poll options, which asked for your opinion on this storefront’s replies to our client’s posts. Unfortunately, we have learnt that certain members of the NationStates community have recently decided to abuse the poll options with the intention of manipulating the result for their own amusement.

When senior management of the Bank of Yohannes did originally plan to make the poll options available, we had only one good intention in mind, and that was to positively interact with visitors and users of the Global Economics and Trade sub-forum whilst trying to see how we can improve this storefront further in 2019. The poll creation, for visitors and members of GE&T to answer, was a privilege — not a right. It was a way for us to receive feedback so that we can continue to improve this storefront to be a financial services and banking storefront with the highest standard, unmatched by any other fictional storefront since the creation of the NationStates website before Jolt. Our poll creation was not something that can be abused “for the lulz.”

We have for that reason withdrawn the anonymous polling options as we do not have confidence in its ability to reflect the true quality of player opinions. Members of the senior management team have expressed their sadness that such a GE&T community interactive feature will not be made available any longer because of the action of a few bad visitors to this sub-forum.

Looking forward, the Bank of Yohannes is confident of the quality of its RPed content and the accuracy of its fictional finance and banking storytelling. As we look forward to what 2019 will bring for this fictional NationStates brand, we promise that we will continue to be the best storyteller and worldbuilder of the fictional financial services sector on NationStates by continuing to build on this thread’s opening posts and by writing high-quality reply posts for our clients.


Faithfully,

Y D E B C A B W
