Attempted coup of the Lemuerian government

Postby LemueriA » Wed May 29, 2024 2:50 pm

OOC: Open to all without signups, not really big enough for me to make a signup. I know I have the Volkonese Revolution ongoing but this ties into that, and why I don't do this in that thread is to not clutter that potentially.

On May 30th, 2024, a division of the Intelligence Network lead by agent Ham Somsung couped the Lemuerian government by storming into the Esteemed Ramêl Palace and shooting, injuring 45 and killing 13. The arrack happened with the DAB HQ in Blashompon being compromised on May 21st, by a mass injunction of 250 new officials and the laying off of 63 previous ones, the new officials were lead by Somsung secretly and gave incorrect reports and bad mission details, leading to a strain in communication and disordered initiatives, which they capitalized on by staging a false attack few hours earlier from the recent one, the DAB HQ had a shooting incident with an official bringing in guns and "exploiting security weaknesses" to injure reportedly 25 and kill 3, however ketchup was used for blood and controlled pills that made people unconscious, so it was all fake.

Soon the DAB created false leads and failed it's own investigation but strained communication and inefficient protocol leaded to other investigations turning up nothing and wide confusion, which lead the Esteemed Ramêl Palace in disarray, with parliamentarians discussing the incident, the DAB asked for security to be searched at the palace to determine if they could find any useful information but the DAB agent was working for Somsung in disguise and shared shooting at security, after killing a few security members and shooting out the cameras, he stormed into the palace and killed many, and injured many others, before killing himself, however he forgot to leave confidential information about the incident at the DAB HQ, and this information leaded to the coup being exposed.

Lord-Speaker Yomms Heroinis, has called the event a tragedy and has called the attempted coup bloody and unnecessary and a growing internal grip by the military going against their democracy. President-Speaker Sembior refused to comment and Velkintote II was on a foreign trip to Spain while the incident happened. He will be recalled within five days. Somsung has fled the country and has been given North Korean refugee, he declined to comment, and the North Korean government will not extradite him for trial in a Lemuerian court, meanwhile other higher-up DAB members have been arrested, and have called the coup, to quote one official, verbatim, "an attempt to spearhead the country into absolute monarchy, and to build a strong military, as democracy has failed us and lead to multiple incidents like the Volkonese Revolution, which started from protesting, the government wishes to destabilize our country and to give up our legacies, lives in the name of so-called 'freedom', this is nothing else then another failure for the left."

Just five minutes ago, Parliament has discussed how to follow. They have proposed snap elections with a new cabinet and Parliament being elected. A full-on investigation by independent journalists which is open for application from any nations that would like to help Lemueria. The writing of a bill to prevent these things in the future. And a potential combined Lemuerian-Russian military drill to get into North Korea and get Somsung.

Somsung has not yet stated a response, after three minutes of him being contacted by the news division of the LBC, aka Lemuerian Broadcasting company.

For now Yomms and Sembior are Acting Lord & President-Speaker. The snap election will take place on June 1st, 2024, by that day all 533 members of Parliament will be re-elected, with each seat having 7 nominations on average, about 3,731 candidates will run, from them a poll of roughly 1,000 will be build, leaving 2-3 options for each ballot.

Somsung has commented, verbatim, "this coup was the last desperate attempt to bring this nation back in order, I know everyone likes democracy and freedom, but for our people, for our legacies, for our nation, we need to transition into a more powerful but efficient structure, the current system doesn't work." North Korea is still refusing to give him up for extradition, while the Russian foreign ministry has maintained a policy of ambiguity, but it is speculated that a secret meeting will take place on May 31st, a day before the election, in which Yomms and Sembior will discuss the North Korean situation. This speculation has no clear evidence so for now the LBC advises to not trust these speculations so far. Yomms and Sembior declined to comment on the speculations.

OOC: yeah it's linked to the war. I kind of wanted to transition Lemueria into a less democratic nation sort-of. I did some character development in the BA president inauguration thread and jumped on this. So it's a three-way war now, Lemueria, the coupers, and Volkon.

So far, Azmeny, Southeast Marajarbia and Aeyariss have all expressed support for the Lemuerian government and against the coup, while Somsung claims that LBC and other outlets' negative portrayal is the reason, many doubt against it. In a vague statement, Sembior has "called for a convention talking about new foreign policy and the status of Lemueria", verbatim, while the Russian foreign ministry has declined to comment, border struggles with North Korea are happening at a fast pace. It has been reported that a village on the North Korean border was bombed, that was claimed to have Somsung in it. Which has lead to many thousands of civilian casualties, it has been claimed by many sources, verbatim, "this is nothing more then Russia in any other proxy conflict, digging up their own benefit in it, while providing no support, it is sad our government out of complex relations cannot leave their alliance with Russia", while a more radical protestor said, verbatim, "this is a conspiracy, by the Russians, and maybe even our government, it is to strike fear, and it is to undermine our emotions to help their goals, and to scare away us, do not fall!"


Some other protestors have claimed that the government misplaced ∅230 billion ($163 billion) just the day before the attack, which is extremely radical. The LBC officially does not support this and recommends viewers against this speculation, it has no evidence, although it has been suggested that there was "a critical error in our democracy", verbatim and even more, verbatim, "that error was because of mismanagement, and should not happen again", by Lord-Speaker Yomms, which has been called to be suspicious however those who argue against claim the ambiguity to not really work in favour of the statement. Lord-Speaker Yomms and President-Speaker Sembior refused to comment on these speculations, however they did informally on Reddit say, "These speculations are outlandish and created by depressed children that have nothing better to do with their time, please ignore them for the time being". It seems like this statement has started a wildfire with reporting of protests in the Midlands and Inner Lemueria, popular artist Muhim Saniuz refused to comment but the Inner Lemuerian government does say "these protests are completely against our democracy and hard-working government, and cross the line of peaceful protest." The Midlands government has not commented as of 7 minutes of a request to them being send.

International Humanitarian Reporting

Recently the Russian military started building a force on the North Korean border and has entered active combat there, firing at a group of North Korean soldiers and starting to raid establishments. The small border city of Rason has been sieged with two villages nearby, as 53,000 casualties have been reported so far, the Russians are practically streamrolling through North Korea. Additionally 123,000 North Koreans have been displaced and scattered around Asia, Lemueria has been silent but humanitarian critics claim that over 9,000 refugees were denied entry and deported to a secret Russian torture site, the Lemuerian government denounces the claims. But everyone is sure that a Russian invasion of North Korea has started, and everyone is unsure as to ehat will happen next. Somsung apparently, as gotten from multiple leaked intelligence reports, moved across North Korea, and most recently to a city on the North Korean coast called Havabisot, which has not been reported in any maps before, but apparently it is a makeshift secret North Korean establishment, where Somsung is currently residing.
