In a speech to the people today, King Aweida confirmed that the new constitution of Quiameth has been officially adopted and remains in effect as of now. Preparations are being made to hold elections while a caretaker government will be formed soon in the meantime.
A small contingent of patrol boats has been added to the already existing patrol fleet in Thespian Anatolia in order to secure borders and to deter aggression. A diplomatic delegation has also been prepared to be sent to Quiameth in order to observe Quiamethan fishing practices, in order to make more informed policy decisions as to deal with this matter in a sensitive and efficient manner. The delegation has also been charged with the duty of educating local communities near the Anatolian border of the restrictions surrounding fishing in their regions, in order to minimize and mitigate the risk of conflict arising from misunderstandings. To this end, the local administrative authority in Anatolia has beseeches the Quiamethan government for permission to allow the delegation to travel freely within Quiameth, and requests the provision of a diplomatic escort or a proof of authority, so that the delegation may complete their duties without the risk of conflict.
The Naval Arm of the Thespian Armed Forces has also extended an invitation to the Quiamethan Royal Navy to perform a series of training exercises around the region, in order to be better prepared to deal with mutual threats. Thespasia recognises the long and storied history of the Quiamethan Royal Navy, and would thus like to facilitate a short exchange between our armed forces to bring closer the ties between our nations.
ooc: would you be willing to collab on this? also could i get observer status within the holy alliance?
The Philmuzan Government would like to congratulate The Kingdom of Quiameth for adopting the new constitution.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs stated that Philmuza is ready to cooperate to the new government of Quiameth.

The Government’s Response
President Altair has accepted the meeting request from both sides, and arranged for a preliminary hearing in the Westfallia Grand Hotel, Room 101.
“To begin with, we’re in a state of peaceful prosperity. Let’s not beat around the bushes; we will be having a Election 15 days later, and the results of said election will determine the fate of Westfallia for the foreseeable 5 years. Impress me with reasons for why we should have enhanced cooperation with you, and we can convince the voters to vote for us to continue said prosperity.”
Westfallia Futures 25.83% - 30.15%
Westfallia First 17.72% - 20.55%
+3 other parties with less than 5% popularity vote
If a party obtains more than 50% of the popularity in the election, it will form a singular government; otherwise a coalition government will be formed and will affect the results of the talks greatly.

A Second Chance For Women In The Military
Given The Empire's history of ultra-conservatism, women in the military has always been a tertiary concern to the population. Women have rarely expressed interest in military service, viewing it as a masculine requirement and career for decades now. Never outlawed or forbidden, women just never really joined the military, and never really admired women in foreign countries who did. According to some:
"Putting myself in danger, doing my husband's job, is just not very appealing,"
However, despite the lack of interest, recent government sponsored initiatives to try and draw in young, female, patriotic recruits to avoid foreign nations believing they are oppressing the female population by not allowing them to serve. However, these initiatives have faced backlash from radicals and most of the population, who simply care not, and believe the Empire is infringing upon their individual liberties, by pressing the issue upon them. For decades, especially since the Fourth Empire's inception in 1985, the government has employed a relatively hands off approach to governance, a major conservative trait that the people adore. The approach is that as long as the people follow the law, pay their taxes, and don't go against its rule (treason), then the government will leave them alone. Despite being ranked as the most authoritarian nation in Diyar on the Democracy Index, and possibly by other nations in the world, the people have great freedom as long as they do their duties as citizens, and it is a belief that has taken root in the population, and they honor this trait.
These attempts to reportedly 'kiss ass' to the international community has caused national outrage, and it is likely going to do the exact opposite of what Her Imperial Majesty and the Concilium wish to achieve. It is likely in the next week or so, the government will be forced to back down by popular demand.
High Speed Rail Project Cooperation With The Europan Union
Since the adoption of military neutrality, and the downsizing the Imperial Legions budget, the Empire has found itself with more funds than normal to use for domestic projects to improve the lives of everyday Lettonians. Lettonia already boasts a highly complex and intricate interstate highway system, however, across the past decade or so, complaints regarding the slow Lettonian trains has taken greater priority. The Empress announced on Thursday the desire to begin a high speed rail project, and has cited successes in the neighboring 'nation' of Linkers Sha, and Eluthania, and desires to bring these successes to Lettonia using their common business partner, The Europan Union, and has asked for their assistance in this important project.
New Embassy Offers Opened
The Empire has offered to open and exchange diplomatic relations with the following nations:
The neighboring, recently independent nation of Illuro has decided under the guidance of Princess Annia, to join the Lettonian Commonwealth, alongside Lettonian cilicia, Meridionalis Lettonia, Sussy town and Poggersania. This marks a greater day of national cooperation and the unity of the two states. However, an agreement has been made between Annia and Vesuvia, that Annia shall remain as head of state of Illuro, instead of adopting Vesuvia as its head of state. Poggersania when joining faced this decision, and it chose to accept it, however Vesuvia has only ceremonial powers in Poggersania as its head of state.
The 2,000 Lettonian volunteers, mostly professional soldiers arrived in Qashqai, joining the coalition effort to destroy, pacify and eliminate The black hills insurgency. Their objectives are to cooperate with National soldiers, Mikalan and Arabian soldiers as Cilician volunteers arrived as well, numbering 1,000.
Empress Vesuvia visited the allied nation of Siaroon the other night to partake in an interview on the talk show hosted by late night television host Sok Kelsey. In the interview, Vesuvia released insight on herself, and the basics of Lettonia to the Siaroonian populace. The questions she was asked never breached personal space, and the interview was released the following night for the world to see. Vesuvia described the nation and its people as "Some of the most pleasant people I've ever had the honor of meeting,".

SECOND TEKKAN WAR RESTARTS, CEASEFIRE BROKEN
At 2PM yesterday, confirmed sightings of INC(Islamic National Congress) forces mobilising were confirmed by a Yeezyland recon UAV. Those forces were witnessed to have multiplied in number and managed to take most of the province of Tekka in a matter of hours to little or no resistance. The small 10,000 troop guard force stationed in Tekka were ordered to evacuate from the province in order to regroup with other troops. However, 3,500 troops were surrounded by INC forces in the provincial capital of Magaroroz. While most of the province has been taken, a brave resistance militia numbering in excess of 30,000 militiamen have put off invasions of the far north regions and the city of Nekhosov(which is now under siege). A Kiamaian peacekeeping force was sent into the western regions to safeguard the large number of Shintoists from the wrath of the INC. Not to mention an elite Russian(Sarayevka) PMC has been contracted by the Yeezyland government to aid in this upcoming counteroffensive currently being planned.
Tonight, in front of a grand crowd in Yeezy City; President West himself gave a speech to the nation and the international community:
"Ladies and gentlemen. On behalf of my government and I, it is with great regrets that we must announce that just yesterday, INC forces were witnessed mobilising in Tekka. These forces multiplied in number and have now managed to retake most of the province from control of the federal government. Most of our local forces have been evacuated out of the province in order to regroup with other troops. The safety of your fellow citizens in Tekka is ensured, a counteroffensive into the province is being prepared as we speak. Based on these findings, it is most reasonable to assume that the Second Tekkan War is restarting and the 2014 ceasefire has now been broken. However, my good people... There is nothing to worry about. The Kiamaian military has already sent troops into Tekka in order to safeguard the far west Shinto regions. Not only that, but a very brave and valiant group of local resistance fighters have banded together to fight off the INC; mainly in the northern regions. Furthermore, the most elite Russian PMC has been contracted to aid the Yeezyland military in destroying the existence of the INC. On behalf of the our government, ladies and gentlemen, we are putting our feet down. We will end the INC an their terrorist stranglehold once and for all! We're coming down on them with and iron fist, showing absolutely 0 mercy. We have endured nearly 3 decades of suffering inflicted by the tyranny of the INC. But we are strong, and certainly stronger than they are. We have every confidence in our militaries ability to successfully guide this operation during a difficult period in domestic affairs. I should like to take this opportunity to assure you all that you can count on my government in dealing with this threat. We will not dissapoint any of you. Thank you for your time."
The government is eager to know how the rest of the world will react. They need all the support they can get.
KIAMAIAN CARGO AIRCRAFT NEARLY SHOT DOWN OVER TEKKA
Earlier today, AirKiamai Cargo Flight 926(a Boeing 707) flying en route from Riane, Kiamai to an undisclosed location in the southwest of Tekka was struck by a MANPADS system on the left wing while on approach to landing. The aircraft was 12km from Algafah Airbase(the nearest airport) and diverted with major difficulty. Nevertheless, the aircraft landed safely and completely intact despite flying on approach too high and too fast. The fact that the aircraft landed was a miracle, considering all hydraulic control was completely lost and the pilots had to rely on thrust controls to maneuver the plane. The incident is currently being investigated by the Yeezyland AAIB, it is highly likely that the INC was responsible for firing the MANPAD, though they have not claimed responsibility yet.
More updates on the situation in Tekka are to come shortly. Stay safe and Pray For Tekka.
Greenbacks volunteer in The Yeezy Land?
After several debates the Lusankyan Government came to a conclusion to pursue for a friendly relationship with The Yeezy Land, after the Livonian Crysis, Lusankya has as it disposal several veteran military units from the second Lusankyan Civil War (1999-2009), and want to propose to send up to 3 volunteer brigades to provide military and infrastructure reconstruction aid in The Yeezy Land, ("Corvus" Airlift Special Operations Brigade, "Vilnius" fucilieri motorizzata (rifle-motorized) Brigade (Contains several pioneer companies for recontruction aid), "Agia Marina" Brigade (Shock/Heavy Weapons Mechanized Brigade) (18000 men - 6000 men each). If accepted the proposed volunteer brigades will immediately depart in 2 weeks to assist the YAF in the counterattack efforts.

Advertising Intensity (Domestic)
Additionally, Europan tourism operators have also been hard at work trying to get tourists from around the world to visit the Europan Union. Various advertisements online and TV have been placed and translated in a large variety of languages to convince others to come to the place. Given the significant revenue the Europan Government earns from tourism indirectly and directly, they have decided to further stimulate it by giving out grants to tourism operators and running their own advertising campaigns, particularly targeting citizens & residents from its immediate vicinity.

Speed to Quiameth
Initial Noholian Visit; Progress Continues
As the official visit was beginning to commence, the organisations that were looking towards education had made up their own decisions. Some opted to not open the non-profit schools, citing that they were not in a position to risk potential seizure of the school in the event of an accidental or potential breach of policy. However, a majority of other organisations, primarily those focused on humanitarian work, agreed to the conditions to adopt the national syllabus. These organisations also requested and wanted a confirmation that the schools would be allowed to run a History and/or Civics Class that aligned to a minority but somewhat significant degree towards the Europan Union.
(OOC: This is known only to the Europan Delegation, Thespasian Delegation and Westfallian Government)
Pressing the Westfallian Issue
The first reason presented would be the cultural and historic ties that both nations have had together. Both the Europan Union and Westfallian States have together shared significant Anglo-German culture [OOC: The Europan Union French as it may be, is a triad of French, Anglos and Germans, with the lands bordering Westfallian States predominantly Anglo-German]. The similar cultural values that both countries contain would be a unifying force that could see easier integration as well as increased cooperation between the two countries, seeing that it would be a lot easier to understand the other when it comes to economic, political and social issues & their negotiations. The two countries have also shared a deep history when it comes to the development and co-existence of each other. It was noted that the relationship between the nations were not always equal and peaceful at times, however, the combined power of both nations resulted in an era where it was considered a greater power. The combined power of the Europan Union and Westfallian States was able to lead to a mass empire that once dominated Delaia, stretched to Fernost and had influence in Dunia. However, it isn’t only just the territorial and military influence that was gained from the combination of the two nations. This brought in wealth for the nation, and resources to further develop both regions, as well as trade with others due to the expanse of the influence of the combined nation in the past.
Regarding the concern of the past treatment, the Europan Union can guarantee that that would be consigned to history and not brought about ever again. This leads into the second reason presented (which has more to do with choosing the EU over Thespasia rather than choosing to begin with), which is the closer ideological alignment and the guarantee of equality & freedom. Both the Europan Union and the Westfallian States are run on modified versions of the Westminster system (OOC: You can ask Westfallian States themselves if you want), so it would be easier to integrate with the Europan Union on a political system perspective, as well as from an ideological perspective, as both are democracies with key values that are protected. To alleviate the concerns of history repeating itself, the following steps would be made: the constitution for the new nation would be formed with equal input from both sides (and a referendum), as would a decision on the capital, name and flag, and the treatment of both Europan and Westfallian citizens and residents as the same and equal in the new state. Both parties would also negotiate on how administration is to carry out, as is maintaining the existing social programs and taxation levels that vary in both countries. There wouldn’t be preferential treatment based on intelligence, nationality, gender, or sexuality when it comes to participating in the exercising of rights and participating in the democratic process of electing representatives. Additionally, both ruling parties thus far are more left wing in nature, which would mean there is greater capacity for consensus on the economic and social issues and their resultant solutions.
The third reason presented would be the current geopolitical situation. It is no secret that both the Westfallian States and Europan Union lie at a crossroads between the 4 spheres of the world. To the immediate west was SGR, an extremely powerful economic bloc that was also technologically advanced and highly developed. To the north was Russia and the economic and military weight that it could all carry. To the east was the rising power of Yeongrang that by all metrics, was likely set on becoming the next great power. Then there is Valid, another major power that seeks to expand and maintain its own sphere & alliance. Both the Europan Union and Westfallian States have made similar choices in the past to seek common protection and co-development. Should both the Europan Union and Westfallian States want to be able to determine their own destiny and define itself, then it would be critical to leverage the combined power of both nations in order to stride for its own goals moving forward. Even if the ultimate decision came down to sticking with another ally, the combined strength of both nations would present itself a more equal power rather than as a junior partner in many of the affairs both nations have an interest in.
With regards to this, we do have to acknowledge and respect the significant economic, political and military power base that Thespasia has at its disposal. No doubt Thespasia would also be capable of such feats, with the argument put forth that it can do it many times better than the Europan Union. However, the Westfallian States has often opted to choose a practice of peaceful co-existence and making its own decisions with respect to the other powers. No doubt would the Westfallian States also wish to be an equal partner in any further cooperation with either nation. To this degree, the Europan Union can guarantee both, lest of course the geopolitical calculus changes significantly, in which case neutrality may not be an option, which no doubt the Westfallian States would also seek to evaluate. The Europan Union would continue this similar policy course of making its own decisions as both would see fit and has been for quite some time. The nation has thus far looked towards cooperation and moving alignment with all 4 major world powers to retain its interests. Thespasia may carry a greater load and deliver more results, however, there is the risk then of a loss in agency when dealing with other major powers of the world, particularly in the matters between SGR and Russia. This is less likely to occur under closer cooperation with the Europan Union, as it is in both nations’ interests to remain capable of being autonomous in its decision making to get the best results.
The fourth reason would be the possibilities and accelerated development with the joint partnership between the Westfallian States and Europan Union. Both the Europan Union and Westfallian States are significant economic and political centres in their own right. Both the Europan Union and Westfallian States have significant resources and the capacity to refine resources into usable products both for domestic consumption and export. What the Europan Union would offer are the large sums of gold, uranium and some of the critical rare earth minerals that would be crucial in propelling forward Europan and Westfallian industry. We acknowledge the greater economic power that Thespasia presents, however, we are already undertaking processes that would better link both the Europan Union and Westfallian States economically. A comprehensive visa and trade deal was struck between the two nations that further accelerated co-development (OOC: Check Europan Union Channel for more info), as is an ambitious project to physically link the Westfallian States and Europan Union through a series of tunnels that would bolster rail and road lines (OOC: The idea of connections was always a thing discussed between the EU and Westfallian States, more evidence can be provided if needed).
Let them fish
The local commander message in Ilu Iwin is also supported by General Suharto and Governor General Habibie agreed that they wont send any additional patrol vessels or corvettes into Ilu Iwin and wont stop or enforce the Linkers Shan EEZ in Ilu Iwin from being entered by Quiamethian fishermen as long the fishermen aren't using ilegal methods of fishing but that's it and have even encouraged Quiamethian fishermen outside Ilu Iwin to freely fish in Ilu Iwin as they see it wrong if they were to enforce the EEZ.
Although most Linkers Shan political analysis said this is a form of method that the Linkers Shan government are using to wedge themselves as the most Pro-Quiameth nation in Quiameth evident from the Support of a specific line of Quiamethian Nationalism in Ilu Iwin and now this attempt.
Considering recent events such as King Aweida confirmation of the adoption of the Quiamethian constitution we first like to congratulate you for this is one big step towards the right direction for Quiameth, but what is important and decisive in the struggle is the fact that preparations are held for elections therefore this must be the one of the main aim of Rikardists in Quiameth.
With that in mind all progressive revolutionary forces must focus in their efforts in studying and analyzing further of our ideology but when explaining it to different people say from different social classes they must adapt their way of talking / communicating our ideology to them as information is key and your words and actions are tools that should be considered and calculated before said or done.
For example if any ideological cadre, party members of even ideological believer or even ideological sympathizers were to explain our ideology and your political, social and / or economic programs for Quiameth to workers or peasants or a farmer you must say to them in an easy way and with understandable words but when explaining it to say intellectuals such as doctors, lawyers and members of the small and national bourgeoisie with comprehensive, detailed and even complex way of explaining your promised programs and ideology that no ordinary workers or peasants could easily understand.
An important new aspect to consider is the fact that with the newly built fiber-optic cables built in Quiameth allowing internet access meaning this can be used for our advantage in campaigning with this we suggest for not only heavy usage in conventional recruiting and information's such as face to face discussions and large scale meeting but also promoting our ideology and your programs in social media platforms with the wonders of the internet.
An important aspect other than information is image ! for this we wish to help by sending Rikardist pamphlets, posters, newspapers and books to be distributed and put on displays on mass in the cities and countryside these pamphlets, posters etc. will come from printing presses in Ilu Iwin that we will set up and then be send through the loopholes in the border between Ilu Iwin and Quiameth to be re-distributed by fellow compatriots in Quiameth it self.
Then again to not arise suspicion of your campaign controlled by us we insist on you our fellow compatriots to set up your own printing presses in Quiameth itself wherever it is and back again on the topic of image we wish for your leaders to actively took part in any political debates held but in it must try to present a strong stature by any mean if you even need to publicly humiliated the opponent such as from exactly used words and even from just arriving first before other candidates or starting the debate first before the scheduled time to make the opponent feel bad / ashamed from the feeling of being late and if not ashamed attack them with it saying they are selfish, egotistical etc.
Other image making events can be funding and starting Community works such as participating in be it reforestation program, be it villagers guided and helped by Rikardist to dig new irrigation ditches or be it Rikardist funding and helping with the constructions of small public infrastructure such as local cemetery, library etc. even funding and helping with the renovation or constructions of new local house of worship to convivence every level of Quiamethian society or prominent Rikardist leaders just seen surrounded by peasants and workers listening to their daily hardships it all must be kept and then spreaded as information that the image of Rikardist listening and helping the people are the widely accepted image for Rikardist in Quiameth.
example for the extraordinary efforts to promote your symbols and image is when us the PKLS promoted our symbols and image in the 1955 Linkers Shan legislative elections with these phrases from an old news reports saying :
"Party symbols with or without campaign slogans were displayed on most streets and thoroughfares in cities, towns and villages all across the country, as well as on private homes, public buildings, buses and trains, and even trees and calendars. The PKLS made extraordinary efforts to promote its symbol, as seen in their displaying it everywhere, from political posters to simple graffiti to newspapers, to make sure people everywhere saw and noticed it. The PKLS's election campaign was based around social activities such as organizing tool-sharing programs for farmers and leading and directing the building of irrigation canals and channels for agriculture and the peasantry. As mentioned earlier, the party was looking beyond the election to build a permanent basis of widespread and large-scale support throughout Linkers Sha."
With this as an example we hope that a permanent basis can also be placed in Quiameth with one more example of how the Quiamethian election might go from another example with it being :
"In the last few months of the election campaign, the major parties focused on educating and mass-informing voters in areas where they had managed to establish village-level influence, organization and control. This phase included persuasion as well as threats." And "All through September, party leaders constantly traveled around the country to promote their parties, themselves and their political ideologies. Daily party-newspapers and magazines were printed in constantly-increasing numbers and given away for free. The articles in such political-dailies and media like these attacked rival parties and extolled their own. In the villages across Linkers Sha, the emphasis shifted from large-scale mass rallies to small-scale meetings and gatherings and house-to-house canvassing of political support."
With these extraordinary efforts to promotes your programs and image will surely need money in our calculations that's why with the pamphlets and other materials we will also periodically send foreign currency to fund your progressive revolutionary movement nothing more than the usual few hundreds of thousand of NCUs but not in the millions each sending to not raise suspicion that you are fully funded by us.
On Aweida it self we see him as the least worst candidates of many more worse that's why in your campaign of promoting our image we also suggest promoting his image, the Quiamethian government program and his allies image that are sympathetic to us and humiliate if possible publicly any opponents that slander his good reputation with any means possible other than using violence to preserve our image as peace loving even using cancel culture if needed to hummiliate or silence the opponents.
Your main enemy that you must demonize however is not the foreigners from deleila, fernost or talvenne in Quiameth as their efforts in developing Quiameth are many and is important but what you must demonize are specific foreigners from storveld such as from Kiamai but also from Orvos by all means necessary such as crushing or even bullying any technocratic movements from existing in the first place in Quiameth and accuse anybody supporting Orvosian technocracy of being selfish and the kiamaian monarchy as a lunatic.
That said one key aspect is the armed forces of Quiameth being the government institution we should be most cautious off for we don't plan to rebel against the government at all but the possibility of Anti-Rikardist and or reactionary elements in the armed forces to try stop us are likely that's why periodically we suggest sending few Rikardist to volunteer to join the armed forces that by time build up our influence in the armed forces and make the recruits be un expected and make the Rikardist recruits even pretend to be Anti-Rikardist if needed or just nationalistic / patriotic Quiamethian in general that want to serve the nation through joining the military's if there were any political checks and courses / questions to the recruits.
On the topic of Liberal democracy or a more authoritarian form of government for Quiameth we suggest viewing it flexibly to accept both and if Aweida focus on one to support one of it fully that Aweida supports with this most of our suggestion and message have come to an end for now and we hope that your campaigns are successful with Rikard himself now 97 years old wishing the progressive Revolutionary movement in Quiameth to succeed.
Yes i guarantee
The forward delegation would be very gladly received in the capital of Frédéric by the Chief of the Union and the Ministers of the Government. The brought presents would be very well appreciated by the Ministers, many of which being gourmet, melomaniac and aesthete. Everything would be done to make the delegation enjoy its stay in Nohol, the accommodation, the food, all would be carefully chosen to make Nohol looks fancy and wealthy to not bring shame upon the Noholians' reputation as host.
We do hope the collaboration between Nohol and the Europan Union will evolve towards something great for our two countries.
The State's Workshop of Nohol is currently finalizing the present that will be offered to the Europan Union's main delegation
Hakha has official religion, minority protests in Hoekyiay
Finally, the Constituent Assembly approved by simple majority the Conservatives draft proposing Buddhism as the official religion of Hakha, from now on, Article 6 of the Hakha Constitution (still under development) states that:
1- The official and majority religion of the Kingdom of Hakha is Theravāda Buddhism.
2- The official religion is to be taught in all educational institutions in the country.
3- Any individual who wishes to run for public office must be a public follower of the official religion.
4- Notwithstanding this ruling, the health system and the judicial system must be secular and their decisions must be detached from any religious or spiritual motives.
5- Every person who is sworn into public office must swear "for the protection of traditions and religion".
6- Under this ruling, the executive branch of the country is not secular, and is directly related to the Theravāda school, the same has the right to influence the decisions of the state, with the exception, as clarified above, of the Judiciary and the national health system
7- No region or individual can break this regulation, if this is done, it will be considered a constitutional crime, and the penalties for this range from imprisonment for 5 years and upwards, including the death penalty in special cases.
8- The whole territory shall have the Buddhist calendar as the only calendar, no region or lower territorial order can be governed by a different calendar.
(Before Kiamai blocks us again, we must clarify that the death penalty is only for special cases of serious crimes that in some cases, violate Buddhist values, these are the Five Cardinal Sins or Anantarika-karma, which are crimes from which the karma generates an immediate disaster. These crimes are:
There are other crimes that carry the death penalty as a consequence but are not included in this article but in the Laws of Crimes, passed by the People's Assembly to maintain order before the creation of a penal code, some of these are, murder of monks or religious authorities, damage to religious heritage, e.g., burning of pagodas or crimes against humanity. The Five Cardinal Sins will be added to this category.)
The approval of this article caused protests from non-Buddhist minorities throughout the country (approximately 80% of the population of Hakha is Buddhist, the rest still believe in Yakin mythology although there are small atheist and agnostic communities that represent less than 1% of the population and are therefore not included in censuses). In Hoekyiay, a group of mythology believers organized a protest at the gates of the Constituent Assembly which was repressed by the police.
Likewise, leaders of the Popular Front, such as the governors of Aungreik and Myokant regions and a large part of the party's legislators, declared the approval of the article as an "institutional disaster" and called for help from the international community to curb the conservative policies of the right wing.
This project, apart from the Conservatives, was approved by the Liberal Front, which was quite striking due to the liberal stance on individual liberties. The head of the bloc in the People's Assembly Wai Arkar Sein to clarify matters, said that his bloc supports individual freedoms but also supports traditions, and Buddhism is a tradition of Hakha for many centuries.

Beginning next week, construction will begin on the Blue Line hub in Alessona, where track will branch out throughout the province, eventually connecting to the already functional trains in Drinan Peninsul to the north, North Minea to the southwest, and Parlavak and Centin to the east.
Additional Joining Nation
Chaiyarach's Railgun is still in a ballistic launching test step. Also, Europan Union has been approved to join this co-op military research project. As a result of the test, it came out approximately as expected. There will be plans to design the weapon soon.
OOC : I would make a factbook for this if I could.
