Explorator challenges Bönning in the SUV market
Image

Portul Occidental - With the recent announcement of Valruzian premium vehicles manufacturer Bonning that they will focus to dominate the SUV market, not only in Seleya, but in the whole of terra, Explorator will challenge that wish. To do that Exolorator will create their own, luxury, SUV. Under the name of EL (Explorator-Luxury), the Kizenian designers have tried their best to create a luxury SUV, without losing their signature value for money aspect.

CEO of Explorator, Matei Gusa explains. "With Bonning launching an offesive on our cheap Liberta, we have decided to launch an 'offensive' on their luxury series. Our EL Liberta offers the luxury that Bonning provides, for a normal price. The big difference between the Bonning SUV's and Explorator SUV's is that with Bonning, you buy the looks of the SUV, and thruthfully, they did nail the looks, especially the BX 5 Equus. But with Explorator you buy the actual SUV, performing offroad, and providing luxury on road. Consumers can now choose between a premium showcar or a luxury offroad SUV."

The main exterior changes are focused on the front end, which has been redesigned, ditching the bulky headlights and using a thin LED stripe aided by some powerful lower fog lights. Also, the grille and the bumper have been redesigned to look bolder. Further exterior changes include a matte black body finish, a new set of spoked rims and a couple of EL badges.

Image

Inside you fill find most of these changes. The design firm turned the interior into a more luxuriant business class environment that can accommodate four passengers. White leather covers the seats, the lower dashboard and the door armrests. The contrast is made using more faux caramel leather for the center console, upper dashboard and steering wheel, while some fake wood trimmings ensure a “classy” overall look. Other improvements includes six-way adjustable rear seats, a high performant infotainment system and a freezer. Total costs for the EL Liberta are set at LOD 4,940, to which the basic LOD 11,150 (basic Liberta is 4000 LOD) Explorator Liberta nav+ price adds. Combined that will create a price tag of LOD 16,090. That is still half of the costs of the BX-5 Equus.

With these cars Explorator is certain that they will increase their market share, and really compete with Bonning. But, to prove the better handling of the Liberta compared with the BX series, Liberta is once again foccusing it's marketing money on the rally autosport. The youth should be atracted by this marketing strategy and choose the Liberta instead of the BX-2.

Kutohaderia Post
"The Ultimate Aim is to Secede from the Confederation" - new Kuzaki Independence Party


The success of the Confederation as a system of governance cannot go understated. A Confederation of some variety has been the prominent form political structure of this land for nearly 900 years. Yet despite this, cracks are beginning to show, and the establishment seem more and more to be oppressing the "little people". Or at least according to the Kuzaki Independence Party, the newest political party in the Confederation.

Running on the platform of the Kuzaki Republic seceding from the Confederation, the party led by ethnic Kuzaki, Tselha Breban, doesn't just want itself to be known as an independence party, but rather as a pragmatic neolibertarian movement looking to expand social and economic freedoms for all peoples, whilst placing greater powers with the individual republics.

The opening conference of the Kuzaki Independence Party was modest, but with an atmosphere that made it apparent the people there sensed change would be coming. As Breban went onto the stage, he was met with rapturous applause from Kuzakis, New Endralonians, and Kizenians alike, and was very clear in his position that the secession of the Kuzaki Republic was not to be an ethnic struggle, but rather a cultural one.

This is further displayed by the fact that the Foreign Affairs Spokesperson for the party, Costel Florentina, is himself, a Kizenian, whilst the remaining spokespeople are a mix of all three of the prominent peoples in the country. Speaking to the Kutohaderia Post, Florentina spoke about why secession was necessary, and the overly bureaucratic nature of the Confederation in its current state.

The Confederation in our modern age is very different to the Confederation set up nearly one millenia ago in order to cease hostilities between the New Endralonians, Kizenians, and Kuzakis. That Confederation was aimed at granting autonomous power to the three individual republics, whilst giving each people a state to unite under in order to defeat the us and them attitude of each of the three peoples that was prevalent at the time.

This us and them attitude has been successfully crushed, quite rightly by the Confederation, but this has meant the Confederation no longer holds purpose. Instead of retaining the autonomy of the three Republics, we have instead seen an ever more controlling central government trying to dictate legislation that should be being passed down to the Republics. The whole basis upon which the Confederation was designed has collapsed, and therefore we need to take action.

Consequently, we find Kuzaki secession necessary. The truth of the matter is that we, as a small and geographically mountainous region of the Confederation, have little in common with the people who live in Cetatea Albă. We shouldn't have to adhere to the laws and policies of a government which fundamentally doesn't represent those who live in Kutohaderia.


The talk so far from this new party has been one of peaceful independence. However, the return of nationalistic politics within the Confederation could set off a time bomb in the CNEKK, and without careful management, it wouldn't be at all surprising if the emergence of this new Kuzaki Independence Party led to a rise in tensions between peoples.

MateShipping grows explosively, as a deal with Explorator is announced
Image
One of the build car carriers, most of them are with closed decks

Endravaros - MateShipping, the promising freight forwarding company recently founded is steadily growing, with a notable deal with Explorator. The New Endralonian car giant needed a thrustworthy partner to ship its cars to international customers. Specificaly, Explorator needed a shipping company to ship its cars from the main factory in Hazhou, Indrala, to other nations in Seleya. The multi million deal was announced today by MateShipping, who has also released its year reports. With a staggering growth of 45%, the year is seen as a massive succes for the small startup from Endravaros.

The deal between Explorator and MateShipping includes the building of multiple car transport ships. While MateShipping doesn't have the capital to buy all these ships themself, Explorator has bought some bonds from MateShipping which MateShipping will use to finance the ships. In 5 years MateShipping will pay everything back.

With the 45% growth, more and more companies are finding the MateShipping algorithm calculator to calculate the cheapest prices for their transport. MateShipping has therefore offered to open their calculator to other smaller shipping companies which would include their ships in the calculator, for a small fee. Captain Nándor Rácz, from Endralonian company Rácz Nyrt, has decided to accept MateShipping's offer. "As a small shipping company, it is becoming increasingly difficult to attract customers." Rácz explains. "Customers automaticall look at the bigger companies in the freight forwarding sector. Small companies are easily forgotten, and we don't have the budget to put a marketing campaign together. I hope that customers will find my business again on the MateShipping calculator."

Explorator reveales EP Liberta & Practic at the Explorator car show.
Image
The EP Liberta

Portul Occidental - Explorator has revealed two new models on its own Explorator Car Show. The EP (Explorator-Performance) Liberta is essentially a modified Liberta, but instead of the luxury modification of the EL Liberta this Liberta has been modified to increase its off road performance. The other car is the Practic, a small budget car, not designed to compete with the other cars from Bonning or other manufactorers, but rather to compete with the secondhand market. For the price of a medium quality 5 year old car, you can have a new Practic.

The new EP 'Extreme' Liberta, as the name and photos suggest, gives us a glimpse of a fully-equipped all-terrain Liberta SUV. The concept model comes fitted with several sports utility materials, equipment and high-performance accessories suited for extreme off-road conditions. The concept comes equipped with features like all-terrain tyres, towing hook, high beam LED lights, snorkel, LED headlamps, high ground clearance, both front and rear skid plates, and plastic cladded roof rails among others. The interior is finished in black and has red accents on various elements, "EXTREME" lettering on the dashboard and "4WD" lettering on the steering wheel. The price is between that of the standart Liberta (5000 LOD) and the EL Liberta (16090 LOD) at 9500 LOD.

Image

The Practic on the other hand, isn't designed to impress, only by price. The Practic is actually deriving from the Viata platform, but with a slightly shorter wheelbase. The range kicks off with an entry-level 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol Core-trim Practic that comes replete with grey plastic bumpers and manual door locks. More upmarket versions are available, with upgraded trim, more powerful engines and better kit levels. The price? A staggering 3000 LOD, making it the cheapest new car in terra.

Kutohaderia Post
PIK Attack Main Opposition Party for "Repulsive" Views


The Kuzaki Independence Party has caused controversy within the usually benign Chamber of Deputies in New Endralon earlier today, as their sole member, Costel Florentina, described the Partidul Bisericii's decision to vote "no" to the PIK's Civil Liberty Reform Act as "archaic and obscene." Florentina also took the opportunity to criticise the Opposition's lack of participation in the Chamber, pointing out that this was the first bill the Partidul Bisericii had voted upon since 4260.

The outspoken Kutohaderian-born ethnic Kizenian, Costel Florentina drew a loud torrent of jeers and heckles from the few members of the Official Opposition party who had turned up for the debate on the PIK's Civil Liberty Reform Act. Florentina, unphased at the commotion, heavily laid into the PB's decision to vote against the PIK created bill. The bill in question seeks to liberalise much of the ultra conservative and religious legislation within New Endralon. Many of the current strict laws were introduced between 4357 to 4360 by the Partidul Bisericii's short lived governance over the Confederation. In particular, the bill seeks to remove religion from divorce, as well as recognise civil unions between both same-sex and heterosexual couples.

After contributing in the debate Florentina gave a flamboyant speech for the cameras outside the Chamber about the "horrific" opinions of the PB. He also took the opportunity to yet again bring up the issue of Kuzaki independence, saying that the slow nature of the Chamber of Deputies "demonstrates the overwhelming level of bureaucracy which is clogging up the system," preventing progress within the Kuzaki Republic.

The opinions of the PB are horrific. It is a discerning thought that these people still hold these archaic and frankly incorrect views. People are individuals and deserve full autonomy over their own lives. That includes who they marry, and whether they want to get divorced. The intruding nature of the PB's policies is a perfect example of why people, like me, are fighting for an independent Kuzaki Republic...

...This was the first time the PB have voted on anything in the Chamber for seventeen long years. This, I think shows how long it takes for this Chamber to get anything done. If they can't even create bills between 4360 and the time that the PIK has formed, then I dread to think what's going to happen now that the PIK have actually passed some legislation. I think that this sluggish behaviour, when it comes to the two main parties and the Chamber, demonstrates the overwhelming level of bureaucracy which is clogging up the system. This naturally prevents progress being made in the individual Republics, and is yet another reason to why the Kuzaki Republic ought to secede from the Confederation.

Extract of the speech made by Florentina outside the Chamber of Deputies.

OOC: A small post this time, to keep New Endralon up to date. When I come home from my schooltrip I will edit it to a better post with explanation.

    New Endralon participates in the olympics, with the main medal chances in tennis and cycling.

    The Confederation condemns the communist revolution in Egelion, reenforces border.

    Egelionese fugitives welcome in New Endralon, but little financial support.

Grand Coalition proposed

Cetatea Alba - The Aliance of Liberals (AL) have proposed a coalition with the Kutohaderian Independance Party (PIK). Since the AL won the Chancellorship they can propose the cabinet. The AL lost their majority and the PIK became the biggest party, but the Party of the Church (PB) has enough seats to keep the PIK from the majority. No autonomy for Kutohaderia is acceptable for the AL, but some extra autonomy for the regions in the field of enviroment and culture is allowed.

New Endralon accepts extra cooperation with Egelion

Demar Solad, Egelion - High Chancellor Mihaili has given a speach in the Egelionese parliament adressing the issue of the civil war in Egelion and the resulting communist terror. Here is a extract of the speech.
We are very concerned with the situation in Egelion. The illegal armed protests in Egelion are not good for the stability in Keris. Therefore we support this [The extra cooperation]. We have reinforced the border with Egelion, to discourage all illegal activities in the region with the border. We will keep our promise to share our intelligence.

We in the Confederation have always had some trouble with illegal communist organisations. For a long time they were relatively peacefull but with the Egelionese unrest they are once agian increasingly active. We fear that the groups within the Confederation and the communists terrorists will cooperate, and we have to stop that.

I would also like to inform you that we will welcome the refugees that flee to the Confederation from the communist violence.

Grand Coalition in doubt as Parties Clash over the Environment

Alliance of Liberals threaten pull out over Three Republics' Ecology Preservation and Exploitation Act

Image
PITR Leader, Costel Florentina, making his way out of talks with the Alliance of Liberals Party

Its always the way in politics, that the little things are what halt progress. Following the reintroduction of the Ecology Preservation and Exploitation Act by the Three Republics Independence Party (PITR), any deal over a grand coalition with their adversaries, the Alliance of Liberals, now seems all but over. Despite the progress that had been made by the two parties, in spite of differences of opinion in regional autonomy, and social liberties, it seems that New Endralonians will now be forced to the polls again if a compromise cannot be found quickly.

In what has been described as an "unwise" and "inflammatory" move by neutral political analysts, Three Republics reintroduced a bill which they proposed before the 4380 elections, when they had no seats. Despite being in possession of the knowledge that the High Chancellor's party were categorically against the bill, the leader of the new party, Costel Florentina, announced to the Chamber his desire to see this bill make its way through the House "at all costs," neglecting the obvious disapproval of the current minority Government.

However, supporters of the PITR say that the High Chancellor has "drastically overreacted" and that since the parties are not yet in a working agreement, Three Republics has every right to propose this legislation to the Chamber. A Deputy for the Regiune of Tilarnia told A Politikai Folyóirat that for the Government to pull out of coalition talks based upon policy disagreements, was simply "ludicrous." He argued that the bill provided a fair, commonsense solution to the balancing of environmental and industrial powers, saying that the Republics of Kizenia, New Endralon, and Kuzaki, could now finally focus on their own individual issues. "For example," he said, "Tilarnia is a lot more industrial minded than, say, Tiania. It makes sense for them to have different environmental and industrial policies."

The point of clash arises from two articles within the bill, which the AL say will threaten the environment. One, the removal of enforceable pollution standards has naturally been met with furor amongst environmental groups, who have attacked the PITR for their "ignorance" over the handling of the environment. The other article has received less criticism, however, as it is more a matter of devolution, and how local governments handle power. Although the AL rightly say that it could put forest replantation at risk, bureaucrats and environmentalists concur that there isn't a high chance of this happening any time in the future. Gephel Pescariu, a leading Kutohaderian environmentalist and lecturer, spoke to A Politikai Folyóirat about the bill:

The issue with the Ecology Preservation and Exploitation Act is that, whilst it does address some key environmental issues, such as the legality of whaling - something that I have long campaigned against - it does not equally, and sustainably balance the needs of industry and the environment. No we do not have a bunch of climate change deniers in the PITR, but instead we have politicians who are trying to balance the environment and business, and are frankly doing a bad job of it.


However, business leaders have praised the bill, saying that local governments understand the needs of local businesses better than the bureaucracy of the Confederation. Whilst some have voiced concern at the destruction of both the whaling and exotic animal trades, most have supported the bill, saying that they felt confident they could work with local governments to develop a "sustainable, long-term solution, to an age old problem." Spokesperson for the Small Businesses Alliance, Emanuel Vaduva, said that local businesses felt "more confident" about the economic future, down to the guarantee of this bill passing.

So, political dispute continues. Environmentalists continue to clash with industry leaders. Politicians continue to clash with other politicians. The only thing we know for sure is the success of the bill itself, which will pass by a solitary vote. However, the potential repercussions are yet to be seen.

Confederal Border Control catches illegal weapon shipment to Egelion
Image
A jeep watching the border with Egelion

Plekszy-Gladz, Zyldavia - The Confederal Border Police has intercepted a illegal weapon shipment to Egelion. While Egelion has strict weapon laws, New Endralon only has some small checks in place before citizens can buy weapons. With the Civil War in Egelion, the communists groups in Kizenia have provided the communist side of weapons. The Confederation have stripped the right to buy and own weapons from the people involved, and have started legal preperations to put the communists involved in jail. The Alliance of Liberals have used this example to gain support for their National Security Act, which increases border security and puts stronger weaponlaws in place.

February 4383
High Chancellor Mihaili declares war against Medina!
Image
Soldiers of the 26th Infantry Battalion transported to Statrica

Cetatea Albâ - The Confederation is at war! The Chamber of Deputies has voted in favour of war with Medina after they attacked the 'New Endralon funded' Republic of Statrica. While not all deputies of the Three Republics Independence Party (PITR) supported the war, a majority voted in favour of the war. This means that New Endralon will now send in troops to Statrica.

Statrica hasalways had very good relations with the Confederation. Since the Statrican Civil War when the Confederation supported the victorious populists, the Confederation has had very good relations with the struggeling third world nation. And with good result, since Statrica has become a example for other nations in the third world. But with the growing Medinese empire which keeps expanding its military, it became a threat for Starica and the hard work the Confederation put in Statrica.

The 1st Logistics Squadron is responsible for the movement to Statrica. Eventually the whole 2nd Division must be transported to Statrica. They will there fight for the independence of Statrica. General Valerian Hagi will lead the forces of the Confederation in their charge against the forces of the Medinese empire. Because the Medinese empire has such long supply lines (they have to transport their troops and supply all the way to Statrica), General Hagi hopes to achieve a swift naval victory and complete command of the sea, combined with air supriority. That would stop the flow of Medinese soldiers and would make a counter offensive possible. The 4th Strike Group will be send to the Sea of Vorona and is ordered to destroy or capture all Medinese ships. The Confederal naval equipment is superior to the Medinese navy and Hagi expects no casualties.
