Gassasinia signs free-trade deal with Sofrezia
The Gassasinian Ministry for Economic Affairs has announced a new Gassasinia-Sofrezia Trade Agreement. Gassasinia and Sofrezia will agree to aim to cut trade tariffs within five years.
It is hoped that this trade deal will bring jobs to Sofrezia from Gassasinia's industries, which thirst for labour to fulfil their manufacturing needs. Furthermore, the deal will have the benefit of granting Gassasinian companies access to important natural resources - in particular iron ore, aluminium, wood, crude petroleum and fish.
On the other hand, this free-trade deal will grant Sofrezia cheaper and easier access to medicines, electronics and ships, amongst other technological exports of Gassasinia.
Furthermore, border checks between Gassasinia and Sofrezia will be lightened, to make travel between the nations, along with allowing for Sofrezian citizens to stay in Gassasinia without the need for a visa, and vice-versa. In particular, it is expected that this will particularly boost Sofrezia's tourism industry.
THE WHEELS OF TRADE CONTINUE TO TURN, SOFREZIA MAKES LANDMARK ARMS SALE
Excerpts from various articles from the STATESMAN TODAY
Cetta Aero Manufacturing has been commissioned by the Democratic Republic of Neferheim to produce one hundred and twenty of their GP-4B light ground attack aircraft for a total of 48 million ACU. Production will commence in the coming year once Neferheim has amalgamated the correct funds.
In it's current format, the GP-4 serves as a reliable combat trainer for pilots of the Sofrezian Air Forces, but a new collaboration between Cetta Aero and it's oversight company of the Aviation Industry Corporation of Sofrezia will allow for a modified combat ready version of the GP-4, the GP-4B, to be produced. This variant can be equipped with rocket pods, gun pods, external fuel tanks and bombs and will surely serve the Neferheim military well.
Aber & Namos Commercial Estate Agents, the leading procurers of some of the most expensive and sought after properties in Sofrezia, have sold the architecturally striking Frourá tis Didóis in the centre of Didoe’s historic town centre. The sale went forward for a total of 15 million ACU from President Starget who stated that he will be using the castle as his own personal holiday home away from Neferheim.
Although President Starget has bought the rights to the property, the Sofrezian Heritage Organisation still retains the right to use the castle in a slightly limited capacity for the public when President Starget is not currently residing there. This is to allow citizens and tourists a chance to look inside a genuine and extremely well preserved, 18th century example of Sofrezian military history.
Foxomexran Legislature in Intense Debate
During the past several weeks the General Assembly has seen intense debate, and no consensus has yet to be reached. The topic? The Foxomexran government's relationship with the country of Neferheim. The dominant Conservative Coalition (controlling 47 seats in the 100 seat legislature) is generally in favour of seriously limiting relations, with a handful of members suggesting a return to the Kingdom of Neferheim policy of ending diplomatic relations entirely. This minority has seen allies in the Socialist, Green, and Libertarian coalitions (8, 3, and 17 seats respectively) which both support drastic action. The only coalitions showing any widespread support towards the Neferheimer government are the Federalist and Nationalist coalitions (23 and 2 seats), who favour maintaining relations and cooperating with the Neferheiner government to guide them towards a stable republican form of government.
Until any position can acquire support of the legislature, the GA may see many more weeks of debate and no progress. This however may not occur, as moderate representatives have seemingly begun to convince many others to enact minor diplomatic action for now, with any further action being open for future debate. Their proposal involves the ending of a previously agreed investment in highway expansion made a few months ago that has so far seen an estimated 15 million ACU go into developing new roads in Neferheim. Along with this, they propose canceling the construction of two high capacity ports along the coast of Neferheim, which have yet to begin construction. Whether or not this proposal will be accepted by the GA remains to be seen.
Finally decided to do another Currency Update.
The ETT is now worth 7418376500/1 ACU.
Operation Angelic commences
It was a cold night and the citizens of the small Ereskan city of Novomotava were just about to put out their lights and finally get off to sleep after a long and precarious day at work, when a series of explosions rocked the sleepy city, as masses of smoke started to bellow from an airfield maybe 30 miles from the city's boundaries.
Eye-witnesses working at the airfield claim to have heard two loud bangs at about half eleven at night, maybe one or two minutes before jets zipped over, guiding precision bombs into the aircraft parked by the airfield as the employees fled from the loud bangs and evacuation alarms sounded. A few seconds later, more precision bombs slammed into the weapons and fuel cache stored on the airfield, quickly becoming engulfed in flames.
Astoundingly, there were no fatalities during the bombing. However, 15 Airmen who were working on the field are in hospital due to burns, shrapnel and other injuries relating to the airstrike.
It is not known who carried out the attack, but it is considered to likely have been carried out by the Royal Gassasinian Air Force, who recently sent fighters to support True Ereskan and Sekidean Union forces in Ereska.
Shattered Mountains 12:30pm
The cold winter wind quietly blows past a pair of guards waiting either side of a checkpoint on a nearly abandoned dirt road. A occasional puff of hot acrid smoke escaping from my cigar as I ponder how I ended up here. The unintended consequences of telling your boss that I would rather not, be a paper pusher payed less than a reject immigrant.
A brief shudder passing through my spine at the thought of that endless labyrinth of cubicles. Truly staying there one more day would have been a fate worse than death by a family of hungry stalkers. A distant pair of headlights appearing around the valley's curve as I unslung my rifle from my shoulder.
"I got this one jimmy" my shifting gaze catching the almost imperceptible node he made. The approaching suburban slowly rolling to a halt at the bar gates lip as I knocked on the tinted driver side window. It's internal motors briefly whining as the glass receded into the doors interior with little fanfair.
The ambient light of the rear cabin light illuminating about three private security contractors in finely made suits. Each very obviously hiding the bulletproof vests under the first black or brown jacket. "Howdy friends can I get your license and registration as well why your traveling to at this time of night."
"Were here on council business, apparently a number of drones have gone missing last week. And we are the unlucky bastards traveling to their last known location a old warehouse up north." With decidedly little fanfair he flashed his identification, the internal security card slightly reflecting the ambient moonlight. His appearance carrying that of a kind old man or saintly appearance as his partners in the back quietly mocked one another.
"Alright sir, everything appears to be in order come on through." Quickly I flashed a thumbs up to Jimmy a brief moment passing before the bar gate rose skyward. The dirty tan suburban pulling through right as all hell broke loose. A swarm of sparks and shrapnel digging into the far side of the vehicle as I dove for a nearby ditch.
A chorus of thunder and flashing light from the distant cliffside above lasting only a few more moments. The lip of the ditch saving me from the worst of a shockwave as the checkpoint went up a wave of built up snow falling into my trench. Time passing incredibly slowly as a swarm of drones passed mere feet over the snow the buzzing disappearing into the dark forests.
LORE CORRECTION AND NEW STATS PLEASE READ
I have decided to change my stats to make it more playable for me and allow me to have my own arms industry without having too crappy tech the new stats are:
Population: 80 milion
army size: 300 000
GDP per capita: 9000
nominal GDP: 720 bilion
military spending: 21.6 bilion
nuclear warheads: 100
these stats can be explained by the discovery of oil in the desert part of my country and a massive modernization program by emperor Huizen in the 1900's also I would like to clarify that my country does in fact trade with other countries its just really hard to get in or out so its isolated in that sence the people arent stone age or anything like that they just dont go out of the country and as such are ignorent of world affairs
NOW SOME LORE OVERHAULS
the Mengshu people will be replaced by the Turgen people which is a turkic islam worshipping people living in the desert part of Yangtian and throughout the Tuadian desert they are still opressed by the government and some radical islamist Turgen conduct an insurgency but right now its nothing major
my country will use north korean and chinese tech i ll rename it in my factbooks so you can still use it except for north korean tech and the type 58 and 56 rifles which will keep their original names if I keep a name unchanged and you are using said tech feel free to let me know and i ll change it
Pres. Tariskiya on the purchase of Timinse-Astariya
The province of Timinse-Astariya voluntarily joined the United States of Kiyortza over 200 years ago as the nation's 19th and last province, being discontent with their position at the fringes of Aleni. The province has always been more autonomous and independent, being not only a later addition to the Union, but one with a different culture. To this day, other than many speaking moreso Kiyortzani than Astari, the province still holds many of its Astari roots, and it is easily the most religious province in Kiyortza amongst other factors.
Quoting President Niklau'iz Tariskiya, "Kiyortza has always been a nation of choice - all of the modern day provinces joined by their choice, and all of the people had a choice on who they chose to lead them. Today, with the request to purchase the province of Timinse-Astariya, it would only be fair to let the people choose, whether to join the Principality of Astariax, or to stay with the United States of Kiyortza. In the case that the people of Timinse-Astariya do choose to join the Principality, we would like to propose certain terms, primarily as to not upset the lives of those who live within and around the province."
Listed below as such are some of the proposed terms:
-Kiyortzani is to be left as one of the official languages of the province
-Visa-free travel, preferably free access, is to be allowed between the province and Kiyortza
-Any vehicle previously licensed within the province has the choice to either remain registered as Kiyortzani or Alenian/Astari
-Trade tariffs between the province and Kiyortza is to be kept at a minimum
-Any laws previously active in the province shall be left in place until a further discussion and an agreement is reached (given certain possible exceptions, where the new regulations are eased into)
-... (OOC: basically just more things about not screwing with people's lives)
The proposed vote on joining the Principality of Astariax is scheduled to happen on the 10th of October, exactly two weeks from now, while the parliament discuss further plans, and wait for a response from the Naladom of Aleni.
Aquadulum Campaign Death Toll Skyrockets
The PRI's offensive along the South Canal has, despite air superiority thanks to Bak air volunteers, bogged down into a grinding halt only a few kilometers from the city. Maneuver warfare has continued further south in the Vues Desert, but by Friday, September 25, the PRI has officially failed it's week goal of capturing Aquadulum. With the onset of stalemate in the area, casualties have begun to mount for PRI conscript forces. Approximately 19,000 men have died on the PRI side alone, though official government reports from Vescarium Vurbaes state that the Government forces lost only 7,300 men during the offensive. With the other fronts remaining mostly silent, one can only wonder how bloody this war will need to get. So far, around 30,000 men have given their lives to the conflict in total. This number can only go up, however, as fighting has yet to truly intensify.
Publishing of Crown Jewel of Corruption
An interesting twist in the Vescarian situation has occurred today, as Plagyor political analyst and author Mátyás Veszprém has published a new book, Crown Jewel of Corruption, which elaborates Veszprém's interpretation of a Plagyor-dominated Vescarium, citing four major reasons (Technocracy, Wenelism, Iestinocentrism, & Pacifism) the Vescarian Commonwealth has failed and collapsed once more into civil war. Many in the Plagyor Republics have taken this new book as a "seminal ideological text," similar in stature to the 1938 book Shattering Diamonds, albeit without the blatant overtones of Plagyor supremacism. However, rumors are also spreading about the book, with some insisting that Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Plagyor Republics Katarina Sopron had actually been behind the ideas of this new text. Currently, these are just rumors, but the Supreme Commander-in-Chief has expressed open support for the book's ideological messages.
Ioctocane-Riyaki Mutual Protection Alliance Established
Another interesting development in Vescarium this week, as the Vescarian breakaway states of the Riyaki Republic and Ioctocane Free State have signed a mutual defense agreement earlier today. The alliance stipulates that the two ethnic states would not engage in open combat against each other, and would instead work together to bring about their independence from Vescarium as a whole. This development comes as the small exclaves of the Syndicalist Union of Vescarium, particularly the Fortunum Orientum military base, where the "captured" radiological bomb prototype had been stored after Vescarium's diplomatic falling-out with Ateenia. With the Riyakis now in control of the weapon, they've announced their plans to dismantle it before it can be used by any other faction for nefarious purposes.
