World Census experts telephoned citizens from all nations at just before dinner time, in a study to determine which populations were most brash, rude, or brusque.
As a region, The Universal Order of Nations is ranked 409th in the world for Rudest Citizens.

Capital City "01-Asilah", The Homeworld of The Allied Republic
Asilah, just like many other places all over the Allied Republic, seemed to be in a sort of a swinging boom of activity. Of course, few if not none were unaware of this recent change, but there was something heartwarming in seeing five times the people out in the open streets. Most of the new faces in the Allied Republic were not actually "people", instead being legions of specialised A.I. workers, who reminded Sarah al-Atassi of her greatest accomplishment that really did come from her own merit, rather than a party ideology line. In fact, the sole reason why she won her second term as Prime Minister of the Allied Republic were these machines, all part of the "Lesser Labour Automatization Act", which finally shut down conservative voices that feared the potentially "dangerous" A.I. and it's impact on the civil society. So far, Amazighland has only entered an era of increased productivity and internal development, while the amount of consumer goods avalible to the citizenry has shot up through the "roof" of many charts, countering the supposed rise of poverty and unemployment, as the machines taking up the positions of labour now demand new workplaces to monitor them, shifting Amazighland further into what al-Atassi knew was the proper direction, which knew to avoid the folly of letting fragile organics with their needs and wants, which there were many, perform menial labour, instead deferring to use robot labour for maximum efficiency at the workplace.
Yet there was and still is a great divide on it, lest her own party would have won the 51% of needed majority seats in the Grand Assembly, instead of deferring to coalitioning with a somewhat like-minded party to scrape at the majority. She could only hope that the population would come to warm up to her ideas. This, for the time being, seemed to be a proper way to feel about a situation, as a increasing amount of citizens were starting to trust her merits as a Prime Minister. After all, she did not exactly carry around the charisma of her Ecologist predecessor [who gave 2,437 speeches, compared to her 109~], nor their good looks or their ability to instill authority through presence. Although, many allies in her circle, especially those she had a friendship with, deferred the lack of the party's popularity simply to a cultural shift. Long-term planning was entrenched in the Allied Republic, but it was losing it's pessimistic flair to a increasingly brighter idealism, a result of time and so many generations passing by the time.
Was she old for being afraid of everything that could go wrong? Was her generation maybe the last of those citizens who were die-hard, cynical children who were raised under the old colonial system of being careful for what one wishes for? Maybe, maybe not. It would perhaps be good, though, if this generation were to simply die off. The citizens of today were surprisingly more careful than their elders, let alone technically even more up-to-date. Asilah alone was an example of the growing national vigour to accomplish more, with the Prime Minister herself being able to behold this through the reinforced window panel of her soon-to-be new office. "A great choice for work", so one of her bodyguard commanders said to the choice. Far throughout the city, robot-dominated construction sites were construction powerful, works of architectural art that came in many shapes, the most dominant ones being squares, to serve as future housing or commerz-industrial zones, all according to the omnipresent guidelines of the state, mirrored not only in the great effort put into making high-quality buildings to last for the long-term, but also the many parks that were part of any new district, along with public-transport only focused streets. None of this was new, of course. The nation has been planning out everything since the dawn of the Allied Republic's existence, but the machines were making everything cost-efficient, with unparalleled attention to detail. It was only a question of a month or two until the crews of starships would be issued out A.I. aides, just like the entire "specialist" section of labour.
"Ma'am?" A sharp, masculine voice reined her thoughts into the background, prompting al-Atassi to look over her shoulder, spotting a concerned-looking aide, who'd maintain a respectful distance of two full meters to her, although the young man was visibly tense, ready to jump into action should something go awry, "you've been looking through the window for the past twenty minutes. The council has summoned for your presence some fifteen minutes ago, but you've not reacted to the summon," with a slow gesture in her direction, he stated what was obviously on his mind, "are you alright, ma'am?"
Waving his concern off, she turned away from the reinforced window, "I'm fine. I just had a few thoughts for myself." The aide gave her a knowing nod after some brief consideration, stepping back, allowing her free access to the open doorway leading out of her spacious office. Five of her bodyguards, all clad in plates of armor, supported by their secfor-issue exoskeleton suits, porting around their vicious looking assault rifles, stood outside of her office, needing only what could be a millisecond to shrug off their idle chatter and prepare to secure the path to one of the smaller conference halls. Normally they'd simply monitor video channels during a virtual meeting, but this was a special occasion on the beginning of her second term, so it did require more effort.
Giving herself one more brief moment of attention, al-Atassi adjusted the golden symbol of the nation's ministerial coat of arms, which would soon enough be in a correct position above her heart. It was a round thing, of little weight despite it's hand-sized shape. The true weight came from the rest of the uniform it was part of: the heavy, grey trench coat, silver a. gold-decorated and lined breastplate, and a uncomfortable, pressed shirt and trousers. It was like carrying a full military-grade vest, but with twice the trauma plates, and a rather uncomfortable, piped collar that choked her neck. She had to cope with it, though, for it was a tradition for the ministerial uniform to be worn for at least the first few months of one's term. Dealing away with it would only give more food to the rumour of her "poor" health.
With a mildly frustrated huff, she then gave her aide a nod, "announce to the council that I am on my way. It's only fifteen minutes of time we've lost, we will manage past that issue."
Glory to the ones who look forward! [NEWS COMPACT]
The national elections behind since a full month, a majority coalition government led by the dominant Egalitarian faction in cooperation with the more minor Industrialist partner faction has been formed, now holding some 54% collective seats in the Grand Assembly of The Allied Republic. This victory comes as unsurprising to most, as the 1st term of Prime Minister Sarah al-Atassi has seen significant and most importantly, consequential change to the Republic's society, shifting it further away from what the re-elected government and prime minister call a "ineffective, over-reliant on Human labour" system in favour of a robot-dominated workforce.
The centrally planned economy has certainly profited from the sudden lack of expensive Human labour, as robot labour has made public projects and work easier to finance, as A.I. does not demand for fair wages, if not any type of compensation, the only cost factor being the specialist human engineers, mechanics and the maintenance factor. The 2nd term of the Egalitarian-Industrialist coalition has already overcome the burden of sorting out the now-unemployed former menial labourers, a increasingly smaller brunt of these being reliant on generous state welfare, as special education programs and state-intervention is starting to "re-settle" these from manual labour to specialization, in order to fill in the hundreds of thousands of new needed workplaces concerning the management of A.I., information and etc. . .
The budget and resource allocation plan shall remain the same, with a minor shift concerning the science budget. The coalition will focus on allocating most funds for public works, maintenance, social welfare a. development, education, healthcare and the sciences, with the sciences receiving a budget raise of +4,1%, primarily for the Coalition to fulfill it's election promise of developing new ways to enhance the currently avalible spacecraft, it's ability to transport goods and to reduce the cost of inter-system travel, especially since as of the current date, most industrial resources are coming from the industrial planets of "Maghreb", which are not in the home system. Although, spacecraft is not the sole agenda of the R&D departments, but also the introduction of new A.I. robot worker models, as any mitigation of maintenance costs would be most welcome. The nation's engineers hope to create a new generation of A.I. labour capable of performing advanced, long-term self-maintenance, which would result in cost mitigation that none would not welcome in every circle of society.
A Galactic Ping
As the Egalitarians have received the upper hand in the ruling coalition, the question of searching for extra-terrestrial civilizations has been propped up again. But this time, it has received the answer in the form of a green light from the nation's small council. Although all are familiar with the fact that Amazighland came from a civilized part of space, the most dividing yet somewhat dominant theory in all circles of academia is the one that the true homeworld of Humanity, old Earth, has collapsed on itself, hence there is a lack of any communication from the old world. Most harbour hope of re-establishing communication with Earth, albeit the amount of citizens affiliating themselves with the theory that the colonists of the Allied Republic have grown exponentially more independent throughout the centuries, signalling a emergence of a new cultural identity well-adjusted to the new home of these "Humans", who themselves have slightly strayed away from those Earthborn.
With the green light, the nation has outfitted an expedition that has been shot-off by a ping and a relatively modern civilian starship from the nation's capital planet and homeworld of Andalus. The ping is to be broadcasted to all four corners of the galaxy, although unlike the attempts before, it will use dedicated communication systems. The single expeditionary starship will be tasked with investigating west of the Allied Republic, although it won't fully dedicate itself on the search for life and will have the task and second purpose of studying the first-to-come neighboring system for any potentional use.

A Popular Soldier's Song
Where’s your home, Zephyr savage, where’s your home?
You’re all doomed, you pissant animals, you’re all doomed!
We're not Teuton, we're not Sudric, we're not Kiwis!
Where’s your home, Zephyr savage, where’s your home?
Some snooty music critics have decried the song as having too many syllables, but as those who sing the song don't seem to have any issues with the "poor syllable conservation" of the song.
Austrians are putting less faith in the musical "intelligent"-sia!

Conservative Revolt, Snap Election Held!
Today, Majority Leader Patrick Nixon and 83 other Conservative Councilors, in conjunction with the Democratic-Progressive Party (185), Independents (10), and the Nationalist Party (5) voted to trigger the Snap Election Act, which requires 65% of the legislative chamber to approve of a measure to call a snap election. Mr. Nixon (C-CA) stated "I love my country, I love my service as a councilor in one of the greatest legislative bodies in our galaxy, however I am furious. President Walker and Chancellor Jefferson indicated that the National Defense Authorization Act was to be used to defend our nation against a perceived K2 Threat. We haven't deployed to the fronts, heck, we haven't even deployed our troops. We have maintained defense of only our country, while we let the international community fight this fight. If we are not going to participate, then their is no reason to drive our country into further deficits and debt. I have no confidence in the present Conservative Leadership, which is why I will be challenging Mr. Jefferson for the Leadership of the Party. We need a leader to stand up to President Walker and confront him when our ideology and platform is on the line."
In order to achieve a majority any party needs to secure 218 Seats. Currently the Conservatives can only afford to lose 17 Seats, whereas the Democratic-Progressives requires 33 Seats. However if neither party obtains the required amount, it will require either party to form a working coalition with either the Nationalists or Independents.
As a result of the "Conservative Revolution", Councilor Patrick has been removed from the Conservative Leadership and demoted to Director of the Commission on Preservation of the Federation. Nixon was replaced as Majority Leader by Majority Whip Amanda Bush (C-VT) and she was replaced as Whip by President of the Council Jonathan Ivike (C-MI).
In the race for the Conservative Leadership, 100 Conservative Councilors have pledged support for Jefferson (including himself), 84 for Nixon (including himself), and 51 have not indicated their preference. Jefferson has been viewed as a likely Presidential Candidate in 2648 or 2652, if he was to lose his leadership election it could effectively kill his political ambitions.
The Conservative Party Congress is expected to meet within the next day or two to vote on the Leader. President Walker has offered his full and unwavering endorsement. Under precedent set by Kennedy and Walker, they have the authority to appoint the Conservative Leader, however they still must go through with a party vote. However, more recently in Nationalist Party v. Federation the Supreme Court ruled "The President does not have the explicit power to appoint the Chancellor at his/her own discretion. It has been precedent that the party chooses the leader, and the people via election confirm the party status as majoritarian or minority. The President choosing the Party leader greatly erodes party democracy." The decision was advisory.

Project Goliath Completed!
Today, the Federation Spaces Forces received the largest expansion it has in its entire history, with the completion of Project Goliath, now renamed Federation Fleet Alpha, will mark a decisive point in defense of Federation Planetary Bodies. Also with the completion of the Alpha Fleet will allow resources to move completing further shipyards and the construction of Project Eclipse.
Federation Fleet Alpha was approved by the Federation Council in 2630, when President Conway was still governing the nation. The Project was initially scheduled to be completed between 2636-2638, however with the Great Anarchy, the Cataclysm, Alliance Wars, and the the Second Civil War pushed back the project nearly 14 years, however within that time it has allowed to make sure all ships were up to par in ensuring battle ready capability.
