"We'd be happy to welcome the Russrashtrian Defence Minister" said Kukur. "Our NIMP has arranged a Military Exhibition which will happen soon. They develop everything from First-Aid kits to Nuclear Powered Aircraft Carriers, our Defense Minister would love to see the Russrashtrian Defence Minister there. Though, I have a question, What are the needs of the Russrashtrian Military right now?"
"I expected that," he said, "Fortunately we have some retired but still service capable ships, they're mostly patrol vessels and some destroyers, but for the Dekronian navy, it is still an upgrade. Actually, we had more of these but as per the July Reforms they were decommissioned and scrapped to be replaced by newer ships. We have a total of 16 patrol vessels and 3 destroyers that the Dekronian navy could use."
"Despite the international anger against The Authoritarian Electocracy of The Pacific Maritime Federation, its economy continues to grow at a rate of 7.2% annually and is expected to grow even faster soon. Because of the independence of our industry and economy, The Authoritarian Electocracy of The Pacific Maritime Federation choose to produce resources domestically rather than depending on trade, instead, its one of the largest exporters of resources in the world"

Ciscannia unveils plans for one of the longest underwater railway lines in the country - from Selzet to Osvine, potential connection to Denstel
The line, connecting the three cities through alternate high-speed rail, is estimated to last up to 60% less time than the current alternatives.
"This is only the first step of many in our railway overhaul," says van Peij, "that now requires more attention than ever."
There have been talks of a "simplified, but more far-reaching" railway system, as nearly two-thirds of the Ciscannian asphalt roads are planned to be discontinued, making way for "other projects" in the next 15 years.
The underwater railway system is due to be finished in 2030, and cost around 50 billion Requis (≈16.22 billion base value currency) to produce.
Speaking of currency:
1 Requis -> BEFORE 0.32723 >> NOW 0.32449 (- 0.84%) - analysts' future predictions divided.

Submission for Jewish Underground State
I held by breath, rifle clenched close as it stomped down the hallway. My heart was beating a mile a minute, and holding my breath only accelerated that beat. Running was no use, the building was locked off. Then-
<<NINE HOURS EARLIER>>
Me, David, and Natalie were the ones sent this time. Kicked out the city until we had hunted the beast. They gave us no more than 20 bullets as a collective, and 3 Rifles. I had known David since we were kids, near all my life, but Natalie was a little less known. She typically kept alone. Maybe that's why she was picked. We navigated through the moist heat and irradiated water, towards the ruins of Old Town. We made sure to be extra quiet, as we didn't want to attract it. As we approached the town, the water only got deeper and deeper, until we spotted the car's roof. There was a trail nestled within the rooftops to get us through Old Town, and the barely above water roof of the car is the beginning of the trail. There were boards leading up to the top of a small rooftop from the car, of which we climbed slowly, one at a time. Natalie went first, with only slight creaking. Next up went David, who had a little more creaking but nothing happened. Then I went up, the creaking only got louder but the boards remained still. All three of us took a seat ontop the building to catch some rest, where I mentioned the bridge might collapse when we return. We as a collective decided that we would most likely have to swim through the ruins back or find some boat to return to the City once the beast was slain.
As we ate bits of the small meals prepared for us, we heard the sounds of screams from deeper within the city, and then a loud crash. David and I quickly popped up, Rifles in hand trying to Search for the beast, to no avail. The various buildings in the way blocked our view of whatever was happening. We quickly packed our items back once again and sprinted deeper within the Trail.

United Confederation offers Pandalanda Yay Independence
Almost 6 months following the Korolkian military withdrawal from Pandalanda and peace being officially declared, the new United Confederation government has offered to Pandalanda the same deal it once gave to Djmekistan: Join into the United Confederation as a semi-Autonomous Republic, or be granted full Independence.
RUMOURS OF KIDNAPPINGS
Recently in the past few months, a few rumours of kidnappings in the southern half if Jekkanburg, primarily in the towns of Terroel, Pinabsia, Irragon, and Mynstia. The government is skeptical and paranoid about it, so does the civilians nearby. Investigations were sent to the nearby towns and the primary towns. Sreitrotian guards was obliged to guard the towns, most in the primary towns while others in the nearby towns.
Johanna Bans The Sale and Ownership of Firearms Nationwide.
After 13 minutes of deliberation, the Johannan government has passed some of the strictest gun control legislation in Kavonia. Johanna is joining other nations with similar legislation with the ban of firearm sales, effective immediately. The nation’s citizens however will have 60 days to turn in their personal firearm(s) to any of the government owned firearm return stations being set up throughout the nation. Citizens that turnover their firearms will be eligible for a tax credit worth the market value of the firearms at the time of drop off.
“This nation is already safe. There’s no need for guns here. I don’t want to be like those other nations throughout Kavonia with bad crime and shootouts. That’s like asking for trouble when it can be prevented,” said a Johannan gun control activist by the name of John Britwalter.
“For this country to be big on civil rights they sure love stripping ours away. Guns don’t kill people. People kill people…and no you may not have my name,” a Johannan that wanted to voice his opinion loudly responded.
Possession of a firearm will become illegal 60 days from today. Citizens found with a firearm can be jailed for up to 3 years along with a fine of up to 5,000 Krupas per firearm.
"Great to hear. Do make your plans soon though. The championship round will not be postponed for any reason. Unlike other nations, our league doesnt stop for minor weather events. Rain or snow, as long as the conditions arent morbid, our players play. The women teams are having their championship season. The real women of course. Not the ones that masquerade as and pretend to be women. I do think that you will find some enjoyable sights in our nation. Perhaps some sort of national tour would be in order. If you ever find the time to have such a tour. You'll find that your view of monarchism, especially absolute monarchism, isnt as regressive as you may think. Perhaps you may even find some things that are done in our Empire that you may find in your own. As I said earlier, the Empire has a majestic forest commonly called The Gapra Whitewood. My grandfather was so awestruck by its majesty that he not only dedicated an entire province that spans the forest's coverage, but it is also considered protected under the Empire's laws. The only people permitted to enter it are tourists, and scientists, who go into the Whitewood to collect dead or fallen samples of the vegetation to study its origins and if any benefits come from consumption or application of the plant." Erwin said, rambling on somewhat.
"My medals? Their weight is negligible when you wear them for as long as I have. The Scherzo people, especially our military officers, love showing off their iron. Medals are earned, not given through birthright. It's why I enjoy wearing mine. I earned every single one of my medals and ribbons through various military actions. The ribbons of course are for various categories of training that I excelled at, the medals for my actions during the Scherzo Wars of Expansion. My grandfather wanted to make sure that his Empire's merits were not simply inherited simply because of birth or association to the various heroes of our Empire. The average commoner of Scherzinger is afforded the same opportunities as my adopted daughters. Nobody is treated with favouritism. If I had to choose a medal I was most proud of, it would be my Scherzo Iron Cross. As I stated earlier, I earned it during my wartime service. I've become known for my defensive prowess in battle. I earned this medal when my men were engaged at the battle of Die roten Felder. In the universal language, it is called the Battle of The Red Fields. I was tasked with moving my forces through the valley when we were met with a counterattack from the enemy. My forces, numbering just 456 men including myself, were pinned down in the valley. We dug in and with the co-ordination of my officers and my commands, inflicted 2,384 casualties. My official casualty counts were 16 dead and 32 wounded for a total of 48 casualties. The enemy retreated and we fortified the valley, remaining dug in and having to fend of 3 waves of troops ranging from foot soldiers with small arms to tanks. We were given enough time to lay down mines, wire, anti-tank obstructions, and what have you. I think what earned me the medal outright was during the battle, I initiated a counterattack, charging at the head of my forces, and knocking out 4 enemy armoured vehicles. Though I suffered a wound to my knee, which is why I walk with a bit of a limp and use a cane sword." Erwin regaled. "I apologize if that sounds uninteresting to you, or if it was more information than you wanted"
The President says "Its good to hear that you will be visiting our nation soon," he stops for a second "And can you tell me about the FE-1 jets that the Achinoami Airforce received? I hope that they've been serving well and meeting the expectations. Its really a beautiful war machine, isn't it?"
"By the way, we have more of such new jets under development and we'd love to share the technology with Achinoam."
As per the new reforms the nation is seeing, The topic has come to the Army. The new leader, Datun says that "Our soldiers must represent the country they are serving. The uniforms have the old symbols and phrases, full of decorations that represent the old Southeastern arstotzka. It is a symbol of the old regime and must be removed immediately."
While many others believe that the reforms and the new uniforms will take too long to be finalized and it will leave the nation undefended for the time being. However, whatever their ideas and thoughts are, they do not want to be seen as a person that supports the old regime, everyone knows what happened to those part of the old government, they entered the parliament building but mysteriously never left.
Datun has come out with an announcement that the entire army will be Disbanded and the soldiers sent home. Other branches of the military such as the airforce, navy and coastguard will also go through a re-painting process where the old flags and symbols will be removed. And all staff working in those branches will also receive new uniforms.
In the meanwhile, The Pacific Maritime Federation's military will be proclaimed as the official armed forces of Southeastern arstotzka.
"Unfortunately, radicals stand everywhere...and especially, in history. The key to eradicate the populist extremism is through thorough, critical thinking instilled by education. Not indoctrination, mind you..." she taps her shoes on the floor for a moment. "But me and her surely don't think alike in all areas. Hardly anybody does," she added.
She would look down as Erwin denotes the "real" women. Though in sports, she would admit that trans women are a sensitive topic to approach, it was clear she did not have the same reasons as Erwin to think so. No need to spill gasoline in the fire, though: she simply looked back up as he talked about the forest. "We will most certainly arrange something shortly," she assured Erwin.
Frota would listen to Erwin, the rambles clearly demonstrating some level of desire to engage, and teach. Much of what Erwin would say was not even near necessary, but to Virginia, it was quite interesting how certain people would think so differently from the average Ciscannian. Sure, quite a few would glorify war - and some, even a monarchy - but not with the passion Erwin demonstrated. "Those do sound like quite the admirable feats...," she said, leaving it at that as she admired the Iron Cross he was wearing. "I wonder when is DA WAAAAGH's leader calling for the reunion," she said, somewhat speaking to herself.
"I wish I could tell you about the accomplishments of Ciscannia, but I'm afraid we lack that historical depth. There is only so much a nation can do in 3 years..."
