The Hyperborean Empire will remain neutral on this matter primarily due to a lack of involvement as well as to focus on the war.

Election Season returns to Sovern!

Its that time of year again when those who want to make a mark in Sovern history, run for the Presidency. This years candidates are many in number, and varied in backgrounds.

Joseph Alduin - a retired General, former President, renown Congressman, and a present Foreign Affairs Minister; Mr. Alduin is experienced in every field of politics and military strategy. Mr. Alduin's platform features key plans to upgrade the nation's space program, and buff its fleet power; bringing the potential of a martian colony into play. He also has plans on expanding Sovern's military power and its influence abroad. The President also wants to apply more filters to the nation's immigration program - considering the level of security not meeting his qualifications. Joseph Alduin has also mentioned in his rallies that he wants to introduce tax incentives for companies that provide healthcare to its employees so they're not dependent on the government's support. This should encourage the private sector to take part in certain matters that the government could save money on. Alduin has also mentioned that he wants to push investors to construct mines and extraction sectors to make Sovern less dependent on imported goods. Alduined has lately mentioned in a recent press conference that he wants to push the term length of the President to ten years instead of five, and there be no term limits applied to the President. Many legislatures has openly challenged that concept, but those aligned with nationalist parties have pledged their support to passing that sort of law.

Voldemar Guscav - an industry titan, and beloved soldier; Mr. Guscav has mentioned in his public appearances that he wants to privatize the majority of the government's services in an attempt to cut taxes in half, and make Sovern a more 'pro-business' nation. He has also mentioned that he wants to cut a lot of 'red-tape' legislation to make employment easier and cheaper for big businesses, which he claim are 'the backbone of the Federation'. Voldemar has only mentioned a few things about his platform of foreign policy; which would include the fact that we wants to expand his territory into the north-east states that border Sovern. He's stated that these territories possess raw natural resources that would boost Sovern's economy and make it rival those on a Hyperpower status. Although, this statement has met controversy.

Elian Iosk - an ultra-nationalist, active advocate for native rights, and a popular figurehead for Sovern culture; Mr. Iosk has a hardcore approach to many of Sovern's current policies. He wants to close Sovern from immigration and instead focus resources that would be given to immigrants, back to the natives. Even though Sovern natives are the only ones that can vote and hold office, he wants to restrict all accessible services and government support from immigrants. Elian Iosk has also mentioned he wants to boost Sovern's militancy and presence, and have a more harsh approach to its trade partners, which hasn't gained the favor of Sovern's merchant companies and diplomats.

Damian Uloav - a census reformer, advocate for immigrant rights, and former soldier; Mr. Uloav has made it clear he wants to expand immigrant rights by permitting them to run in elections, vote, and even be granted an easier citizenship process. He directly opposes regulations, but he wants to put limited regulations on Sovern's arms manufacturing industry that would prevent them from selling to other countries, even if there are legal contracts that would bind that exchange of weapons and military-grade vehicles. Damian Uloav has also mentioned he wants to restrict companies from refusing to serve immigrants, which has remained a 'touchy' subject for legislatures, given that anymore red tape would be considered "proto-socialist", which the government has tried hard to revert from.

The White Parade

Today marks the day of Fallih's official declaration of independence, and in celebration of this glorious day; a large company of Militas have formed to march throughout Fallih with white clothing as a symbol of purity, and national identity. Garnelian immigrants weren't permitted to participate in the parade, but they were invited to attend as a guest. Although, the speeches that were made were incredibly anti-Garnelian, as many of the preachers mention the horrible things the Garnelians did to the Fallih during their rule, and the exhibited mistreatment that lead to the tensions that have been built up to this day. This has triggered a chain reaction of anti-Garnelian speeches that spread throughout the country from small towns, to the capital city directly. A counter-protect of pro-Garnelian citizens have also made their point clear, that holding grudges is pointless and the integration of Garnelians is vital to the stability of Minera. However, those who speak on behalf of the Garnelians were usually beaten to a pulp by the natives. This sort of conflict was stopped by the President, who made a neutral point, where even though Fallih belongs to Fallihs and it should never submit itself to Garnel, it doesn't mean that the Garnelians can't call Fallih home. Fallih wishes to remain the way it is, but it still doesn't want to revert to its primitive nature. Fallih can change with the world, but it will still remain true to itself.

Embargo on Reaper Sythe! (UPDATE)

For disturbing trade by committing acts of war, and for causing instability in the region as a whole, Reaper Sythe is subject to an embargo. The following members of this embargo will cease all exchanges of services, and goods between them, and Reaper Sythe, until further notice. Due note that if Reaper Sythe continues to act as a belligerent on the international stage, the members of this proclamation will host a blockade by the ocean and air.

* Due note that this list may expand if any nation wishes to join the embargo on their own free will.

Election Results!

The Elections results are in:

54% vote for Alduin
20% vote for Iosk
16% vote for Guscav
10% vote for Uloav

The vote suggests that Joseph Alduin is now the 4th President of the Federation. He has already prepared his speech, and will be presenting it to the Capitol this evening.

All Hail Alduin!

President Alduin can be seen standing in front of the Capitol, peering over a vast crowd of his citizens who blanket the surrounding cityscape. The raised Sovern flags wave majestically with the wind.

"It has been some time since I've stood here. From this view, I can see that Sovern was grown well without me. It warms my heart that my homeland can prosper without my presence. It proves that my faith in my people hasn't betrayed me, heck you can even say you did better without me. Regardless, I am still needed. The universe has revisited my role as a leader, and its finally the time to embrace my path. We all share this path, it is a journey we must all witness to ascend to the next level of our being, as a people. My vision for Sovern was clear, and for that I must reform what I know.

As mentioned during my presidential campaign, I will be reforming the President's role. I plan on extending the term length from five years, to ten years. There will also be no applicable term limits for the Presidency. In addition, more powers will be granted to the President to insure the security of our people, and the well being of our nation. We much adapt to the world, or the nations abroad will consume us. A strong leader is necessary during these dark times. I will also be pushing for more filters on Sovern's immigration program; while I find that the integration of immigrants may prove beneficial to the nation's economy, the security is as important, and the bureaucrats haven't realized there has to be a common ground for both means. To top it all off, I will be expanding Sovern's space program in the hopes of developing an advanced inter-stellar fleet, more orbital defenses and security systems, and the foundation of a martian colony. Its time that our proud people be able to casually touch the stars that illuminate our night sky. We must go above and beyond, or we'll sink down to the debts of despair and regression. We must fuel the drive to succeed and best our limits."

The crowd cheers, waving proudly their national flag, rallying the energy to continue Sovern's ambitions

"This is not up to me. This up to the determination of the common Sovern. If you support me, and wish to share the same dream that I have, then we won't be faced with any limits. I am no better or stronger than the average citizen, I am merely the flagship to our destination. We can't get soft because of the luxuries we possess, we must go above and beyond what the world expects from us. Sovern is the mighty sword that doesn't rust, that doesn't fault, that doesn't miss its target. Our swing is grand and unstoppable. Our dreams will lead us to unlimited glory, and prestige!"

The audience's waving becomes more apparent and wild, distant whistling and robust behavior enhance the experience.

"However, we must no make enemies. We have no business causing trouble, and engaging in pointless belligerence. Now, we must not only be united as a people, but be united as a front with our allies. International collaboration is our objective to a more stable world, and a better tomorrow for all nations, and all peoples. We will stand proud with the Hedrans, we will remain loyal to our neighbors, we must model ourselves after the Hyperboreans - the primordial race of mankind. Together, we can form a realm of peace and sovereignty. However, under my administration, we will not tolerate bullies or those who wish to only spill turmoil and suffering. We will not idly stand by while others target our allies, interests, and partners abroad. We will remain firm against anyone, no matter what banner they wave. Our enemies will know what hell we can bring when you threaten us in any way. Sovern will last for the centuries to come, and we will not wither as time passes.

I am nearing the end, but I won't leave knowing there could be more done for my beloved nation, and my people I will fight to the very end to defend, so for those who only wish ill intentions, you should count your blessings, because Sovern will never back down, we will press on through hell and heaven to get what we desire. Long live Sovern, and glory to those who are privileged with the Sovern name!" President Alduin finishes as he salutes to the crowd, which grows wild and almost out of control. In the distance, a growing chant echoes throughout the collective voices, "All Hail Alduin!"

The Hedran government applauds Alduin’s victory and wishes all the best for the Sovern people and for the Hedra-Sovern alliance to live on.
