August 4416
After 20 years of standing by the sidelines, New Endralon is ready to reclaim an important position in the international community
Image

Cetatea Alba - Szalai Barna has taken over the role of High Chancellor from Adrián Molnár, who was in power for 33 years. 33 years are a long time, even for New Endralon, which has a recent trend of leaders who rule for a long period. With Molnár resigning over health issues, New Endralonian Barna will take over. As President of the Council of Ministers he advocated for more involvement in interational affairs, but High Chancellor Molnár always shot his internationalist plans down.

The isolationist stance of New Endralon came after the end of the Medinese War, when after repeated intervensions in multiple foreign wars the treasury was empty. After the interventions in Statrica and Medina, the support and the money for further international interventions was over. The New Endralonian intervention in Medina was extremely expensive. And even while New Endralon wasn't in debt and always runs a budget surplus, a classical liberal policy adopted by the Libertarian Party years ago, the enormous costs of transporting an entire army and big portion of the naval fleet were more than New Endralon could handle. Furthermore, after the destruction of the 4th Strike Group with a deathcount of more than 1000 sailors, support for foreign wars was decimated.

It was a major point which almost made Molnár lose his position as High Chancellor. It made Molnár very wary of everything connected with Foreign Affairs, and eventually just ignored international events completely. But that is all about to change, as Barna takes over the role of High Chancellor. Petra Balla takes over the role of President of the Council of Ministers. She is considered a political talent in the party, and could possibly become a High Chancellor.

OOC: Yeah, it's pretty much an IG explanation why I was inactive. NEK was at page 3 of the international news so I had to do something :D Other than that, school is almost over so I finally have some free time. Also, this is the first time I have assigned a women as HoS or HoG. I didn't realise I was such a sexist in this game, I always have like 40%~45% women in the cabinet. Oops. Well, now I finally have a woman as HoG.

High Chancellor Barna Expresses Concern over Third World Developements
Image


Cetatea Albâ - High Chancellor Barna has expressed concern over the recent developements in the third world. In particular the authoritarian regimes of Xsampo and Medina are a concern, for they seem to have expansion ideas which go against the national sovereignity of multple countries. Where Xsampa seems to be a major power in recent years thanks to the unificaton with Hanzen and a invasion in Kimlien, sultan Azeez has taken a even more agressive route with the invasion of first Medina itself, and then Tropica and Utembo. Now with an invasion in Temania Medina starts to become a real power, capable of actually matching the power of developed countries.

With the combined invasion of Utembo by both Xsampa and Medina, these aspiring empires have gained a combined strength unmatched by any nation in the third world. And that is even without the alliance with Statrica, another third world regional power. With the regime change in Medina, and the invasion of Tropica, some may wonder why New Endralon, as an allied force in the fight against the Medinese Empire, responds this late. But that is all because of the infamous isolationist policies of former High Chancellor Molnár, who didn't involve himself in foreign affairs in fear of a national backslash.

Because of this the position of New Endralon is in danger. It won't be able to match the combined strength of Xsampa, Medina and former ally Statrica. Even warthorn Vanakalam is now under the influence of Medina, meaning that the influence of this mighty alliance is already spread over three continents, Dovani, Temania and Vascania. To still have some influence in the third world New Endralon might have to cooperate with Northern Council ally Lourenne, with who they also cooperated in the Medinese War. Kazulia, which showed some initiative after the developements in the third world has slowly moved into the background after a change of government.

In his speach, High Chancellor Barna explains that the growth of the empire will not stop unless the international community acts. "I have never sean such little justification for wars than by these two regimes. And there is no, absolutely no reason to believe that the expansion of these two empires will stop. I suspect that Ntoto will fall next to the terrible warlust of Xsampa, while Medina will probably expand further in Temania (the continent) or Bianjie." The national newspaper of Medina already talked about the will to "topple Lourenne, crush New Endralon, decimate Talmoria." We will see what happens, now that New Endralon is finally acknowledging the power of the former colonies.

High Chancellor Barna Visits Lourenne in Light of Third World Empires
Image

Eroncourt - High Chancellor Barna has arrived today in the capital of Eroncourt, where he will meet President Aurore-Anne D'Orléans. They will mostly talk about the developements in the third world, a concern for both countries. With the Medinese and Xsampa empires expanding their military and influence, stability and peace in the third world are once again at stake. Other than that, they will also talk about a possible free trade agreement and the opening of some Avienne facilities in New Endralon.

The growing of Xsampa and Medina is a major concern for the allies in the Medinese war. When Medina was growing it's empire it crossed the line when they attacked Statrica. It invoked a reaction from both Northern Council members. Together with Talmoria they pushed Medina back and eventually put a democratic government in Medina. But with that democratic goverment overthrown by Azeez, also famous for the Medinese war, it nullified the effort to liberise Medina. Now New Endralon/Kizenia and Lourenne have to think on how to respond to this new situation, as it doesn't look like Medina and Xsampa will stop.

Unfortunetaly the odds are powerwise turned. With the combined strength of 7 former colonies (not including Temania as the war isn't over yet, nor Vanakalam), Lourenne and New Endralon actually find themselfs outnumbered. And the former colonies are extremely motivated, even the captured areas. The 'colonial nationalism', the idea that the third world countries need to work together to compete against the developed world, is a concept now fully suported in southern Dovani.

After this important topic there are other topics, such as the possibility of a free trade agreement. Although both nations trade with eachother there is no official treaty between New Endralon/Kizenia and Lourenne. The Avienne Beverage and Resort Company is currently expanding internationally and it is also interested in opening facilities in New Endralon/Kizenia. On the other side car manufactorer Explorator might want to expand into Lourenne and Dovani. Although the car market has stagnated and interest in cars is decreasing, there is still room for growth. We will see what happens.

Oktober 4418
Foreign Minister Iacobescu condems Vanuku in World Congress
Image

World Congress Headquarters, Whale Island - Foreign Minister Iacobescu just condemned Vanuku for the use of nuclear weapons in the war in Jelbania. It marks the end of the great relation between the Kingdom of Vanuku and the Confederation. Embassies in Vanuku are now closing, and the alliance between Vanuku and the Confederation has been cancelled. It is expected that economical sanctions will soon follow.

While High Chancellor Barna would have visited the World Congress to talk about such a important issue, he is going to Bekenial, Hutori to visit the Northern Council conference about the developements in the third world. We got a statement from the High Chancellor which stated that he also is shocked by Vanuku's decision and completely agrees with Iacobescu's speech. He also assures us that the situation in Jelbania, Deltaria and Vanuku will be discussed in detail at the Northern Council.

We have printed the full statement of Foreign Minister Iacobescu below:

We follow Kalistan as the second nation to condem and sanction the Kingdom of Vanuku. I was shocked when I watched the news today, as the news arrived that Vanuku used a nuclear weapon in the war against Deltaria. I do not wish to involve myself or the Confederation in discussions in who is right in this war, only that the use of nuclear weapons is not right. If a nation, such as Vanuku, posseses nuclear weapons, it has to act responsible. As the old saying, 'with great power comes great responsibility'. That means that the use of nuclear weapons is not allowed, unless it is a retaliatory strike.

Unfortunetaly Vanuku isn't responsible. No, they decided to use the nukes against a non nuclear nation. While the war itself was bad enough, atleast you can take active measures to prevent civilian deaths. This nuclear strike has undoubtedly cost the lives of many innocent civilians. And the nuclear strike could have been a bit more moral, had Vanuku first offered an ultimatum to Deltaria or had they warned the civilian in the areas. But no, Vanuku decided to kill as many people possible. The fallout in the area will make a part of Jelbania uninhabitable, it will destroy the harvest of the poor Jelbic farmers and pollute the scarce drinking water.

For a king who calls himself Protector of the Jelbic Peoples, he has not protected the Jelbics very well. for these reasons, we have decided to withdraw from the New Endralon / Kizenia - Vanuku Alliance & Cooperation Treaty. This is to take effect immediately. Furthermore we will close our embassy in Vanuku and expect Vanuku to close their embassy here in one week.

It is a shame that our good relationship with Vanuku must come to an end. But this crime against humanity is unacceptable, and we will therefore distance ourselfs from the Kingdom of Vanuku.

February 4440
Businesses Swoop In On Kalistan
Image

New Endralonian businesses have swooped in to acquire massive amounts of Kalistani stocks within the past few months, so much so that as of last month, over 35% of Kalistan's listed companies had become New Endralonian-Kalistani joint ventures.

As Kalistan grapples with one of the most severe economic crises in history, New Endralonian businesses have seized the opportunities in this period of doom and gloom, by acquiring massive amounts of Kalistani stocks at rock bottom prices as economic confidence remains at historic lows and investors flee. New Endralonian companies, large and small, have, as of last month, acquired more than 25% of Kalistan's listed companies, and have successfully controlled the national airline, national motor company, and the national utilities and power companies through partnerships with Kalistani locals. NEKOil, New Endralon's largest oil company, is also looking into buying stakes in Kalistan's major oil and gas companies, which will further grow New Endralonian interests in the country. New Endralonian economic analysts expect the new acquisitions to further shore up the massive economic reform agenda back in New Endralon, as these acquisitions bring much needed heft and presence to New Endralon's companies as the government reorients the economic strategy of the country towards greater export-growth and more deregulation.

High Chancellor Proposes Penal Code Reform
Image

The High Chancellor making his speech before the legislature, introducing a bill that will amend the Penal Code.

The High Chancellor has just introduced a bill before the legislature that will amend the Penal Code in the most radical moves seen in recent New Endralonian history. The proposed Penal Code (Amendments) Act will reintroduce the death penalty for all capital crimes, not just the current 3, terrorism, crimes against humanity and treason, and will be the first major legal change made by the National Union government which took office in 4432. The National Union controls all seats in the legislature and has introduced many economic, regulatory, and military reforms since taking office, but its focus has drifted to a larger focus on its key promises made to its base, a tougher law enforcement role, a larger scope of social control by the government and a more managed approach towards drug policies. The proposed legislation will fulfil some of those promises, and another aspect that is one of the most controversial is the reintroduction of judicial corporal punishments such as caning and flogging, and a small minority of devout Aurorians in the National Union Aurorian Caucus have raised concerns and vocally opposed this aspect as they view the notion of judicial corporal punishment as cruel. However, more than 70 lawmakers have already spoken and indicated strong support for the proposal made by the High Chancellor, and most analysts expect the bill to be passed by an overwhelming majority of lawmakers.

August 4441
Finance Minister Introduces Budget For FY 4442
Image

Finance Minister George Iliescu introduces the Government's Budget Plan for Financial Year 4442

Finance Minister George Iliescu announced the Government's budget plan for Financial Year 4442 immediately after the legislative session ended, in a widely-covered press conference in the lobby area of the legislative building. The Finance Minister indicated that the budget for 4442 will be a smaller one than the one he introduced in 4441, which increased spending in a number of areas to make up for the radical cuts made in the National Union government's first budget. The 4442 Budget Plan, entitled, Restoring Our Nation's Promise, cuts the overall spending amount by 3.25 billion New Endralon Dollars (NED), and makes prudent adjustments in the budgets of the Home Affairs, Health, Agriculture and Education Ministries, which all saw minor reductions in line with increased operational efficiency targets set by the government, and also in line with reduced staffing numbers, as the government had cut through mounds of red tape to streamline the bureaucracy and enabled these ministries to shed staff without compromising on effectiveness and quality of services. Meanwhile, the Justice Ministry had to receive a 20% budget increase in line with the increased police recruitment drive needed to cope with the crime rates in the inner cities. The Finance Minister has said that the budget was prudent and necessary in order to preserve the nation's fiscal sustainability and promote economic growth. Experts believe that the budget will remain popular amongst lawmakers but amongst the public, opinion is divided, according to the polls run by several agencies, with some believing it is too harsh while others continue supporting the budget as a responsible one for the future.

August 4442
Death Penalty for Murder, Drug Crimes, and Judicial Corporal Punishment Reintroduced
Image

The High Chancellor and the President signing the Amendments to the Penal Code into law.

The High Chancellor's proposal to amend the Penal Code was passed by the United Chamber of Deputies by a margin of 295-to-6, and the President and the High Chancellor have officially signed the bill into law as of this morning, formally reintroducing the Death Penalty for most very serious crimes and reintroducing the practice of Judicial Corporal Punishment, the policies to both of which have not been changed for over half-a-century, and the signing of the bill marks a major shift in the government's direction since it took office in 4432, focussing on more fundamental and lasting reforms as it moves towards creating a future-proof nation for the future. Legal experts have divided opinion on the bill, with a large number applauding the move as closing a major loophole that allowed many criminals to go to prison relatively unpunished, and for capital criminals to escape the gallows despite the massive amounts of pain and suffering they inflict on their victims. These experts called the bill "decisive", "significantly positive" and "far-sighted", and applauded the move, which law enforcement officials also display large amounts of support for, as many police officers indicate a desire to make sure that punishment fits the crime, and that deterrence was needed as a longstanding rise in crime rates displayed failures of previous administration's overly-comfortable attitudes to the dysfunctional status quo of the Penal Code.

However, other legal experts displayed dismay and shock at the passage of the legislation, calling it a "farce", "[as if] a sledgehammer [had] been slammed on the dignity of human rights", "complete disregard of the sanctity of human life", "barbaric", "cruel and completely unjustified". These experts claimed that the law was overly draconian and did not display the government's promise to lead a more forward-looking nation, and only displayed the willingness of the government to resort to "shallow scare tactics" to coerce people and "oppress" the people with this new law. However, this opinion is not really shared amongst the general public, as the new amendments hold a 77% positive rating according to a recent poll by the Kizenian Star.
