Argos Loukas receives PM of Deltaria
The Caesar of Selucia has shared his opinions with the Deltarian leader

Ahead of the 4362 Selucian elections, the Caesar of Selucia Argos Loukas has received in the Domus Consularis the Head of Government of Deltaria, Kamil Novák. During the meeting, that has lasted two days and has also shown the Deltarian leader the wonders of the Selucian islands, has been focused on the economic and military issues of both nations, talking about future investments and military equipment trade.

We are glad to see democracy coming back to Deltaria after some dark years. While we still don't agree with some of its policies, that's a matter of its internal politics and we have no say on that, and I have already expressed my opinions and thoughts on those matters to MR. Novák in private. However, we do have found some common points in our discussion, specially those regarding economic investments and military trade.

We are open to restore diplomatic relationships with Deltaria again, and industries and business from the Deltarian nations are open again to open stores and factories in the Selucian nation, as well as we hope Selucian industries will receive the same treatment in Deltaria.

In the same way, we will be sharing military and security information, with common military training at some points.


Deltaria, ruled by a socialist party but with a council of Thallers, has just come from a civil war and has restored democracy in the nation after agreements between the two major parties, the THallerist one and the socialist one came to the table.

Selucia has ben a fortress for democracy for centuries, and we hope that sharing our main points on how to do it will help Deltaria to achieve a greater level of democracy in the upcoming years. In the same way, we hope to improve our military, strong in the sea but still a little weak in the ground, so Selucia will be able to defend better in case of attack.


The prime minister of Deltaria has also witnessed naval training in Selucia, as well as attending a part of the Selucian Games for entertainment.

Selucia to build its first aircraft carrier
The Minister of Defence has announced today the intentions to build the nation's first aircraft carrier

Syra Roscius, Selucian Minister of Defence, has announced today the government's intention to carry out the construction of Selucia's first aircraft carrier, after several years of progressive improvements in the country's navy and with the increase in military spending.

Our nation has long been linked to the sea, it has grown with the sea, it has flourished with the sea. We have made incredible improvements in marine studies, in marine biodiversity protection, in transoceanic transports ... but our military capacity at sea is still mediocre. We must continue contributing to improve our navy if we really want to protect ourselves, and that is why the government has decided to begin the construction of the first aircraft carrier in our country. We have made contact with several nations, and we hope that some more will be offered, to carry out the construction of this ship, with the aim of contributing to Selucia's Navy obtaining a greater capacity for maneuver to be able to protect itself , and to be able to protect those who, at any given moment, feel threatened.

If the project goes well, as we hope, and in about 5-10 years its construction is finished, we hope to be able to carry out more investments of this type, in order to greatly increase the capacity of our armada.


Selucian Government announces the creation of the Diversity Day
Argos Loukas has defended it as "another step towards equality"

Caesar of Selucia Argos Loukas has announced today the creation of a new national holiday: the Diversity Day, from June 30 to July 1.

We think that this is a step further in equality. With this day, we are proposing all Selucians to embrace diversity, ignoring religion, sex, sexual orientation,
race, color of the skin... As the anthem says: We are different and yet we are equal. That resumes perfectly what we want for this day. Hopefully, it will end veing a 365-day celebration, with everyone respecting each other every single day of the year.


During the whole day, which will be granted as public holiday for everyone, parades will take place all along the nation showing the diversity of its society, and conferences and cultural events will be organized to the public.

Aelius Celer Institute for Minorities Studies is founded
The idea came from the Faculty of Political Science of Auroria, and it will focus on Majatra

Image
Alysia Barba, the woman that will lead the recently founded Institute.

Alysia Barba, former professor of politics in the Aurorian University, has released the news today: the creation of a Selucian-based Institute to study the quality of the rights of minorities in the Majatran nations.

The idea came from many professors in the university, and I decided to make it happen. Today, we're announcing the creation of the Aelius Celer Institute for Minorities Studies, a research institution that will operate all along Majatra with the main focus of studying the rights of minority group in the Majatran nations.

We decided to name the institute after former Caesar of Selucia, Aelius Celer, for his great contributions to equality in Selucia.


For now, the institute has announced that will prepare studies about women's rights and immigrants' rights, while releasing the study already done about LGBT Rights.

Aelius Celer Institute for Minorities Studies: LGBT Rights in Majatra.

The ranking, based on legislation about 6 pillars (legalisation of same-sex activity, same-sex marriage, adoption by LGBT couples, LGBT in the military, laws about gender identity and laws about gender expression), has shown the plummeting rights of the LGBT community since the beginning of the century, where they enjoyed protection in a large part of the Majatran countries, to the current situation where only in four countries out of 16 they can enjoy full protection and full rights (Barmenia , Cildania, Istalia and Selucia).

High:

-Barmenistan (10/10):
Barmenistan is the most notable country in the ranking, specially because the legislative change the nation has experienced in a short amount of years. In less than two decades ago, the nation was among the most restrictive with the LGBT rights, and it has shifted drastically to embrace them.

-Istalia (10/10):
Istalia is the only other nation to score a perfect ten. The consecutive governments of the southern nation, no matter its political ideology, have understood the rights of this group to fully enjoy their lifes as they please, without anyone attempting to feel superior to them.

-Selucia (9.58/10):
Selucia, a traditionally permissive and friendly nation, was going to appear with no doubt in this ranking. Since the early 4100's, the nation has been increasingly introducing laws to protect the LGBT and other minorities.
Needs to improve: Help to those who need to change their gender in order to be themselves.

-Cildania (9.58/10):
The nation has exactly the same problem as Selucia.
Needs to improve: Help to those who need to change their gender in order to be themselves.

-Cobura (9.16/10):
Needs to improve: Involvement in same-sex marriages.
The nation has a perfect track in recent years for the LGBT group, but it fails in granting the right of getting married for same-sex couples, instead deciding that it is not a matter of the government to protect them.

Acceptable:

-Badara (8.75/10):
Needs to improve: Involvement in same-sex marriage.
The nation fails to recognize the rights of all its citizens to marry whoever they want, instead letting each judge/religious to decide if it is right or wrong. That is the major fail.

-Beiteynu (8.75/10):
Needs to improve: Government involvement in rights of individuals to express their true gender.
The nation, along with Barmenistan, is the other surprise in this list. It came from an oppresive government and knew how to transform itself in an open and tolerant nation.

-Zardugal (8.75/10):
Needs to improve: Discrimination in the military.
While the southern nation has a perfect record in LGBT rights, it cannot be tolerated a "Don't ask, don't tell" policy in the military, as if it would interfere with the fulfillment of their duty as a soldiers.

-Kalopia (7.91/10):
Needs to improve: Involvement in gender expression and civil unions.
The Kalopian nation has the combined problem of Cobura and Beiteynu. While it provides a wide range of rights and protections to its citizens, it fails in giving the basic rights of a rightful marriage if a couple decides so, and the right of everyone to change their gender to fully feel who they are.

Moderate:

-Jakania (6.66/10):
Needs to improve: Laws on gender identity and expression.
Jakania has shown its tolerance towards the LGBT group through all its history. However, in recent years, radicalism has been on and off in the nation, leading to some laws that have not yet be eliminated by the Government. The actual legislation declares illegal gender expression operations and gender identity.

-Deltaria (6.25/10):
Needs to improve: Government involvement in unions and gender expression, legalisation of gender identity laws.
While some expected to see this nation much lower, the truth is that the current legislation offers good coverage to members of the LGBT collective in Deltaria. However, currently the country does not recognize legal changes in gender identity, while preferring not to be involved in same sex marriages or sex change operations.

-Vanuku (5.41/10):
Needs to improve: most aspects.
While the nation is ranked in the moderate group due to mathematics, the truth is that it could also be degraded. While it is legal for same sex couples to adopt a child, and people can change their gender identity, the nation uses the policy of "Don't ask, don't tell" in its military, prefers not to be involved in the recognition of same-sex marriages and gender change operation, and leaves to local government the possibility to declare illegal the act of being a member of the LGBT group.

Low:

Critical:

-Kafuristan (2.08/10):
The best of the worst, mainly because its governments prefers not to be involved in gender change operations instead of declaring them illegal. In the same way, individuals can change their gender identity but if they are married, their partner shall agree (which is better than nothing). And finally, if a same-sex couple somehow manages to get married, they are given the possibility of adopting a child.

-Jelbania, Pontesi, Solentia (0/10):
The three nations can be included in one group as none of them recognize a single right for the LGBT group, scoring a perfect 0 in all fields of the study. The main coincidence of the three nation is the presence of right and far-right members in their governments, specially religious fanaticals, who openly oppose to recognize the LGBT group as normal people and treats them as an inferior group, degrading the name of their nations as a whole.

BREAKING: Thallerist terrorist brought down by Selucian Police
Under the cry of "Selucia for the Thaller", the terrorist tried to attack during the annual Selucian National Games. The Government demands responsibility to the Thallerist Governments around Terra.

Image
Foreign Affairs Minister Chrysa Contou at the informative conference in the Presidential Palace

During the closing ceremony of the Selucian National Games, held this year in Marestella, the police of the province located a terrorist who was trying to place a bomb in the stadium that was to host the ceremony, in order to provoke an explosion that would have resulted in the collapse of part of the structure and caused hundreds of deaths and injuries among the attendees. Fortunately, the police discovered the terrorist, who fled the different floors of the stadium, ending in his running with the life of a middle-aged policeman. However, when cornered, he made the decision to end his life, and under the cry of "Selucia for the Thaller", threw himself through one of the viewpoints of the Majestic stadium, rushing to the void.

Fortunately the bomb could be deactivated, and although the ceremony has had to be postponed, it is expected that in the next hours it can be carried out again, with a special tribute to the deceased policeman.

However, and although thanks to the rapid police intervention there were no more victims to regret, local authorities have already requested an investigation of the facts, to understand how he could pass the security controls during the Selucian Games, the largest annual event in the country followed up close by almost a quarter of the population through television and whose winning athletes are considered great national heroes.

In addition, after the statements of the police present in the persecution, Selucia's foreign affairs minister, Chrysa Contou, has demanded collaboration from the countries where the Thallers govern, in order to clarify the facts and not break diplomatic relations.

In an urgent appearance, the minister has identified the terrorist, resident in Selucia for eighteen years, as Abdullah Von Thaller.

We demand as soon as possible explanations about this event to those nations where the Thallers are in the national power circles, in order to avoid possible diplomatic confrontations and make sure that what happened is an isolated event, because otherwise and in the face of this serious event, Selucia will respond with forcefulness.

Unfortunately today we have to mourn the death of a law enforcement officer, who was doing his job of protecting citizens, because a terrorist has stepped in his way. Our nation is known for its multiculturalism, for its open-mindedness and tolerance, but facts like these stress society and place them in a serious internal conflict. Therefore, we want to clarify what happened today as soon as possible, and for that reason, we demand that the Thallers to explain their relationship with Abdullah Von Thaller and what his past was, in order to eliminate suspicions about any plot against our nation, which would seriously deteriorate the relationship of our country with them.

LEGIONEM NATIONIS FOUNDED ANEW
Image
Martinus Varro, grandson of the late Consul Tiberius Varro, addresses crowds in Auroria

Over a century ago, the Legionem Nationis was a far-right, nationalistic party that was able to dominate Selucian politics with its immense popularity for over a decade until its eventual collapse. Now, over a century later, several prominent conservative business leaders and politicians led by Martinus Varro (grandson of the party's founder) have reformed the party this year and are making a push for the next elections in 4370. Mr. Varro and other LN figures have been campaigning around the country, trying to sell Selucians on the core principles of nationalism, free markets, and a strict adherence to Hosian principles while criticizing leftist parties:

In our time, just as in my grandfather's time, when he came to you with the very same message, our worst enemy continues to come not from outside but from within our own borders. I am, of course, talking about the sadistic, Elyonless left.These socialist-dominated governments have driven away business with high taxes and overregulation,left us to flounder on the world stage with ineffective, submissive foreign policy, and has destroyed the moral fiber of our nation with their continued refusal to recognize that Selucia has and always will be a rightfully Hosian nation with Hosian principles, and has instead encouraged our young men and women to accept abominations open homosexuality and sexual promiscuity. In short - and I trust no one will rightfully think I am being too harsh with my words - they have utterly raped our beloved country. The Partis Imperialis is a vastly better alternative, and under their leadership in the past few years we have seen great progress in undoing the damage done. But they do not and cannot go as far as our country needs or deserves.

My fellow Selucians, there is only one party that can bring you the salvation of our country, and that is the Legionem Nationis. But make no mistake - you all must play your part. You all must fulfill your role, for the rebirth of this country like a phoenix from the ashes shall be done formally in the Senate but in practice it shall be forged from the blood, sweat and tears of every patriotic Selucian man, woman, and child. This was my grandfather's quest over a hundred years ago, to see this revolution through. This is my quest now.


While the Legionem Nationis is still remembered somewhat fondly by older demographics, it remains to be seen if the party will be able to fire up the electoral base like it was able to before.

In Marea-Civis Sinistram passes to the opposition caucus
The left-wing party has announced it after the bad results of the last elections

ImageImageImageImage
Members of In Marea-Civis Sinistram resigining today: Chrysa Contou, Athena Gavrus, Iris Loi, Ares Zervas

After more than 20 years, In Marea-Civis Sinistram will seat again in the opposition place. The left-wing party, that has lost more its stronghold of Insularia and has become the last force in the Senate, has announced it in a press conference where more news were announced.

We, In Marea-Civis Sinistram, understand the will of the people. After the last election result, were a new party with no political experience or no bills created, has taken the majority of the left-wing votes, we assume that it has been our fault not to correctly explain ourselves. Now, the only way to rebuild our party is in the opposition. For this reason, IMCS announces its immediate resign from the coalition Government, thanking the magnificent labour done by Partis Imperialis, and announces its work this legislature in the opposition.


Has said its General Secretary and former Caesar of Selucia, Argos Loukas. The secretary has had harsh words against the new left-wing party, claiming that "while Selucians are attracted by the new", the new party has not yet proposed a single bill in the Senate and has just agreed on bills proposed by In Marea-Civis Sinistram, therefore stolen its own triumph.

Immediately after the elections result came out, the Leader of the party, Athena Gavrus, announced her resign in her position due to the lack of trust in her figure after two consecutive elections. The former Minister of Education and Consul of Selucia has thanked the party for all the years she spent working with it, but she has said now it is time to rest for a while.

However, this has been only the first of the cascade of resignations that has arrived after.

Ares Zervas, Praetor of Insularia for 26 years and apprentice of also former Praetor of the region and well-known Selucian politician Zenon Gogolas, has also announced his resign.

I just feel ashamed of the result of the party in Insularia, our stronghold. I can't believe that a newcomer has just come with no political programme and has managed to win over the party that has been ruling Insularia during most of its recent history. And I'm the only one to be blamed of. I've served this nation, Insularia, for more than 20 years, but now it is clear that new faces shall take my place to regain Insularia.


Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Justice, Chrysa Contou and Iris Loi, has also resigned from their positions in the Government, in order to obey what the general secretary Argos Loukas asked for, the total placement of IMCS in the opposition block.

Argos Loukas has also talked about the resurgement of Legionem Nationis, claiming that "we defeated them once, we will not let destroy this nation again. We are proud to be tolerant and open, and they will not be able to act against this. Luckily, all the democratic forces in Selucia will be able to stop them, and we hope they do not get as much triumph as they had in the past".

Traditionalists form Party
"Republican Party" founded on traditionalist platform

Image
Party co-founder Decimus Nasennius Valens reading the Republican Party's manifesto

November 4367 - The emergence of the far-right and ultra-Hosian Nationalist Legion and the electoral upset that saw the long-standing In Marea party lose votes to newly-established Denique Vidimus Lucem has galvanized the conservative and traditionalist Pagan and Hosian electorate and renewed calls for the restoration of the Republic's political traditions. Capitalizing on this new traditionalist wave a number of prominent Selexit and anti-immigration campaigners have joined together this month to establish a new political party. Called simply the "Republican Party", the new faction was established by Decimus Nasennius Valens and Postumus Oppidius Hortensius, the former a Selexit campaigner and former member of In Marea, and the latter a Pagan religious leader and member of the religion's College of Pontiffs. In their detailed manifesto the Republicans decry what they see as the moral and political decadence of the Republic and call for a return to mos maiorum, a nebulous term referring to traditional Selucian values and virtues. Contrasting themselves from all current political parties, the Republicans dismiss the Selucian left as caring more about identity politics and human rights than for responsible liberty and economic justice, while criticizing the right, represented by the Imperial Party and the Nationalist Legion, for their free market stance, monarchism, and religious intolerance. Instead the Republicans bring an unusual mix of left-wing and right-wing policies as their solution to the problems they see with the Republic. Calling for term limits, the reintroduction of the dual Consulship of the 3838 Constitution, a franchise restricted to those that served in the Armed Forces or civilian service, the limitation or restriction of luxury and what they see as immoral acts, and a corporatist guild-based economic system, the Republicans present an eclectic policy mix aiming to appeal to voters dissatisfied with the current conditions.

And there are indeed many citizens who no longer identify with the Republic's policies and recent governments. The extravagant expenditures on the Victoria Olympics and projects like the nation's first aircraft carrier, the government's embrace of socially-liberal causes like "Diversity Day", the recent Thallerist terror plot, the continued presence of Barmenian royal Set Thaller-Mede as a religious leader in the nation, and the rise of the ultra-Hosian Nationalist Legion have all caused large parts of the population, particularly conservative Pagans and left-leaning Hosians, to question the legitimacy of the Republic's institutions. Capitalizing on this widespread dissatisfaction, the Republican Party aims to gain popular support for its unusual and eclectic solutions for the Republic's problems and may gain many seats in the upcoming November 4370 elections.
