3590's Known as "Reconstruction Era"

Early this decade the emergence of the Königlich Edelste Party (KEP) and the withdrawal of the Plaid y Canol/Zentrumspartei from the Government the nation of Aloria has underwent a shift in leadership and a way of life. The KEP led a Transitional Government which held limited power in an attempt to keep the nation from falling apart prior to the elections that would later establish a KEP led Government with no party standing against the KEP. The Transitional Government led by Garren Waldreich started a campaign to install a new Monarchy ruled by Divine Right through the passing of royal blood. Upon the winning of the Elections the KEP started working on changing the Government and the very way of life within the nation.

In 3585 the KEP announced the Imperial Royal Mandate, which established the official royal bloodline and birthright of divine rule to the Waldreich Family and its current patriarch Garrus Waldreich. Upon its passing the Waldreich family became Royal Family of Aloria and Garrus Waldreich became first Kaiser (Emperor) of Aloria in many centuries. Over the past 9 years the Waldreich family and Imperial rule has passed many laws changing the way the people of Aloria live and work. The changes have met with some resistance from the Peoples Democratic Front an open defiant group opposed to the rule of the Imperial Mandate.


National Police Force makes arrests across country of PDF members

The Alorian National Police Force along with Citizen Defense Forces and the Alorian Military have begun massive sting operations across the nation to round up what they call the "upper echelons" of the anti monarchist group known as the Peoples Democratic Front. The PDF are said to be responsible for millions in damages to National Parks, Memorial Centers, and even several Government ran schools and hospitals. The more militant arm of the PDF referred to as the Peoples Patriotic Army have also been targeting members of the National Assembly and people who where instrumental in the Reconstruction Era of the nation.

Just last month a car bomb exploded killing 10 innocent civilians as they walked by the Imperial Memorial Park. The car bomb was believed to have went off before it was suppose to. The PPA has also taken the blame for several attempts to take the life of members of the Cabinets in unorganized attacks against the members homes or offices. Just in the past 4 years there have been over 19 attempts all ending in failure against cabinet members.

The PPA and PDF are said to be seeking refuge in foreign countries but the Alorian Imperial Army has not released any information as to which country or countries they may be seeking refuge in. A source who asked to remain confidential said that reports where scattered but that the Alorian Imperial Army was beginning to deploy troops South and West, but exact locations were not mentioned.

The spokesman for the Civil Defense Force announced that within the past few months there had been an estimated 247 arrests of suspected PDF and PPA members across the nation. The Alorian Imperial Army and National Police Force announced that it had also estimated that the number of members still within the country ranged from 3000 to 8000 with another 4000 outside the country helping organize movements within the nation as well as to help secure the PPA with weapons including military grade weapons from foreign countries that have open Arms Trade.

Alorian National Police suppresses PDF rally in capital

Image
Alorian National Police Force prepares to engage protesters armed with rocks, Molotov cocktails and suspected small arms

Early yesterday a group of protesters ranging from 600 to 1500 in number blocked off the main stretch of road that leads to the capital building using makeshift barricades. The Alorian National Police Force along with Capital Defense Forces where deployed and using the newly acquired military grade weapons and armor they obtained from the newly established Monarchy the police force was able to break up the barricades and the protest within a short time. The leaders of the protest were linked to the Peoples Democratic Front and were arrested for charges of Inciting Violence, Organization of a Mob, Membership to a terror group, and other charges. Other protesters arrested where simply charged with public disobedience and public disorder.

Several protesters stated that the Alorian National Police Force used "overbearing" and "brutal" methods to disband the protest stating that the protesters had done nothing wrong as far as causing violence. The Capital Police Director Morgan Stukrove stated that "without a permit or requesting rights to demonstrate from the city government protests of this nature are illegal. Especially when using barricades that block traffic and hurt business located along that road." Furthermore Stukrove also stated that the use of rocks, incendiary devices and small arms is illegal in demonstrations and pretty much in most day to day living in the city.

Soon after the PDF announced it would be seeking international assistance in getting its leaders released from prison stating that its membership did nothing wrong. Kaiser Waldreich stated he would personally look into the matter and would see about lessening the charges in return for cooperation with the PDF.


Garrus Waldreich announces Military Plans to the National Assembly

Kommandeur Heerführer talks to National Assembly

Garrus Waldreich attended a National Assembly meeting recently in which the National Assembly was discussing the needs of the Military and what the plan for future development. During the meeting Lord Singrin Holister announced that he had a special guest speaker and announced Kommandeur Waldreich to the Assembly. During the discussion Waldreich made the case for increased spending to the military for development of new armor and weapons for their soldiers as well as for better training.

"Our troops lack the technology and weapons that many other nations have. We lack the training to use these new weapons or to build our own. We can not let this stand when the defense of the nation is a top priority of any nation. So long as we are behind the rest of the world we will need to take action and seek out ways to increase the amount of funds we spend on the military."

The National Assembly will meet later this year on increasing the military budget as well as to increase the amount of taxes. Some are looking at redoing the tax system as well as to increasing Corporate Tax. Some are demanding an increase of Sales tax on all goods while others are calling for a decrease of taxes on Luxury Goods. The sudden introduction of Kommandeur Waldreich to the National Assembly however did not set well with certain political speakers and thinkers. Some have openly stated that such an action is a way for the Monarchy to keep control and power with little to no interference from the National Assembly.

Others say that they pretty much have such power as its the Kaisers own brother who is Head of Government.

National Assembly seeks to remove IRA from "The League of Terran Nations"

In a recent proposed bill by the KEP which currently holds dominion over the National Assembly, the KEP is seeking to remove itself from the League of Terran Nations which it feels, "restricts its economic and foreign affairs". The reason for this sudden move was because of the by laws within the LTN that stated a nation can not impose "Protectionist Tariffs" to ensure the stability of the nations economic structure.

The KEP has taken an Isolationist view when it comes to Economics and Trade between nations beliving that "Globalization" and the allowence of Foreign Business can destabilize the economy of the nation. In recent years the KEP has passed several Foreign Relations bills that has cut down on foreign trade and increased the spending of the Domestic Trade and Manufacturing centers in an attempt to make up for the lack of foreign goods coming into the nation.

This move has met with stiff resistance from members of the Independent Business Owners League (IBOL) which has recently stated that the latest in new bills would destroy the economy of the nation by bringing down the entire system and stopping the ability of private owners to do what is needed to make profits and use that to increase their business ventures.

Despite this the KEP has maintained that the economy is to be maintained through extensive increases in spending in area's of Industry and Manufacturing as well as increasing their domestic production and infrastructure. People on the streets are mixed with a recent poll done by the Alorian National News Network (ANNN) showing that 42% show disfavor with another 58% showing favoring the system (-2 to -3 percent difference).

Military budget proposal in talks could be biggest ever in Aloria

Image
Newly designed LAV's in production

Kommander and Head of Government Garrus Waldreich had recently went to the National Assembly to ask for more money for military repurposement in order to resupply and increase funds into Research and Development. It was not known if the KEP led National Assembly would agree with this until now. Recent changes in the Income Tax and Corporate Taxes along with increasing Luxury Tax has seen a new amount of money come into the Government. It is believed that the current budget of 70billion ALO's will be increased to almost 100billion ALO's with cuts being made in Enviorment and Tourism, and Internal Affairs.

Upon the new budget a Miliary Approperations Budget will be made and sent to the Assembly for vote. It is expected that they will vote on a budget and military upgrading over a 12 year plan. The hope is to increase the number of troops, military equipment and new technology in order to keep up with the rest of the world.

Some people are scared this will cause tension in the surrounding nations as Aloria is entering what would appear to be a War Time Production sceniro.

Alorian Military meets with Kaiser concerning Dundorf

Image

In a recent meeting soon after the announcement from Dundorf that it was sending troops to the boarder with Aloria over the Alorian's Peoples Assembly recently passing a new budget in which the military budget was changed from 70billion ALO's to 100billion ALO's the Kommandeur Heerführer Garrus Waldreich announced that the military would be responding in kind.

Statement made by Garrus Waldreich during Military Command Brief

"We can not allow any nation, no matter their intention, to change our direction. Our aging military is in need of repairs, modernization, and men. As we speak we have already spent the last few months upgrading and implementing new technology in creating new weapons, armor, and machines of war. Our goal is not to conquer but to simple become a power in the region with a military strong enough to protect our boarders from possible aggression. To that end we must be willing to stand up in the face of danger and prove we deserve this more then ever."


The military brief lasted for over 4 hours with each Kommandeur giving recommendations to how to handle the situation. The official decision was not made public till much later on. Later that evening the Kommandeur Heerführer met with his brother, Kaiser Garren Waldreich to discuss the situation further. The meeting was held behind closed doors and the press was not allowed into the meeting. Speculations have swarmed that the Kaiser to some extent chastised his younger brother over his recent move in Military Development, but others have stated that the Kaiser has taken a stance of indifference in the issue as he focuses on rebuilding the country after years of neglect from a "Lame Duck" Democratic Government as well as the continued domestic issues posed by the Peoples Democratic Army and Peoples Democratic Front.


Alorian Imperial Army deployed to boarder with Dundorf

Image

The Alorian Imperial Army just announced that it has been given orders to deploy 10,000 troops along with the current 1500 Civil Defense Forces located on the boarder with Dundorf. Along with the troops is 15 tanks including 4 new Leopold II tanks which are the newest addition to the Alorian Army arsenal. Currently details of this tank have not been disclosed other then that it was a design that had been kept by the military until they were able to gain the funds to finally build the prototype for it. Going straight into combat readiness the current Leopold II's are the prototypes and current production of more Leopold II's has been cancelled until the field tests are done.

The Army also stated it brought 2 of its current 4 prototypes of Anti Air Batteries known as the Saraka S2 which little is also known about other then it uses GPS Designations to locate, track, and fire at hostile Aircraft. Not much is known how accurate it is but some military commanders have already stated that its accuracy is better then using the current armaments of Flack Cannons and Triple A anti air cannons. Currently the only anti air system in use that uses a missile based system is the GurmenV1 which only has a 74% success rate of striking its target. It was not mass produced and currently only 19 of these units still exists.

The Peoples Assembly has sent word it will be asking for a National State of Emergency in the boarder towns and a curfew will be put in place along with check points and roadblocks. The local CDF has been requesting assistance for some time now from the military build up on the boarder but for securing the towns from possible incursion from the Peoples Democratic Army which has been reported been traversing the boarder between Aloria and Dundorf.

Mortar strikes in Al'Mora blamed on PDA

Image

Recently the Peoples Democratic Army has been pushing hard into the south where currently the Dudorf and Alorian Military are in a standoff over the recent spike in military funding by the Peoples Assembly and the Kaiser in attempts to modernize and reorginize the Alorian miliary.

Over the past month there has been an estimated 12 mortar strikes around the town of Al'Mora which is a border town between Aloria and Dundorf. The local Civil Defense Forces has been the target of most attacks with secondary strikes taking place close to a makshift military camp under Alorian Imperial Army control. The makeshift base is in use until the Alorian Military finishes a new Fort in the area.

The strikes by PDA are becoming more frequent and it is believed they are using the tension between Dundorf and Alorian Forces as cause to start the strikes. As of this month there has been an estimated 62 casualities of the mortar strikes with another 135 injured. Most where civilians or CDF personal. Only 5 military personal were wounded by the mortar strikes.

Field Commander Adolf Houwtzmen stated that he was working with the local CDF to find the area's in which the mortars where coming from and that they would begin strikes soon. The Field Commander has sent word via sat com to Dundorf forces stating that any strikes along the boarder are not aimed at their forces but at PDA militia.


Kaiser to visit Dundorf

With tensions high between the Military of Aloria and Dundorf the Kaiser has announced plans to visit Dundorf to begin talks on coming to a "common understanding" about the development of the Alorian Military.

"Our goals are not that of imperialism through military escalation but through mutual protection of our country from the possibilities of foreign invaders as well as to remove the threat of internal fighting between the Peoples Democratic Army and the Alorian Imperial Amry." stated Kaiser Waldreich.

The Kaiser decided to visit Dundorf with his wife and son along with the Alorian Foreign Minister in an attempt to foster a sense of peace. When asked his feelings on the matter of his brother going to Dundorf Kommanduer Waldreich stated that "I have no opinion at this time, the Board of Generals has yet to discuss this matter and will do so when the time is needed."

It is no secret that since the establishment of the new Monarchy that there has been some difference of opinions between the Kaiser and the Board of Generals who runs the entire military of the nation.

Currently it is not known when the Kaiser will visit Dundorf.

Boarder skirmish leaves several dead many wounded

Image
Prone Alorian Soldiers as fire fight breaks out between AIA and Dundorf Foces

Just hours ago shots rang out just south of the boarder town of Al'Mora as it appeared Alorian Imperial Army personal and Dundorf Military Forces clashed after several mortar rounds landed inside the Alorian Imperial Army forward base. Within minutes of the initial attack the AIA fired 6 artillery rounds at the location they believed the mortars came from which resulted in the striking of several Dundorf military units.

This resulted in an exchange of artillery, tank, and infantry fire between both sides. The early warning radar went off in the town of Al'Mora and residences where ordered to remain in their homes. The CDF was deployed in the city to keep martial law until word came from the front about the fighting.

The Alorian Imperial Army pushed forward gaining a slight foothold on the boarder but not long afterwords the Dundorf military was able to push them off the boarder. The Alorian Imperial Army then was struck by further mortars from a elevated position, believing it was Dundorf reinforcements the AIA sent a detachment of LAV's along with the new heavy tanks to take the hill located just on this side of the boarder. Upon arrival the AIA engaged the enemy unit only to find out it was PDA forces. It is stated that a transmission was sent on broad band to both sides from the Tank Commander of the unit that engaged the mortars.

"*Transmission: Mortars engaged...enemy threat removed...enemy not Dundorf...Peoples Democratic Army...End Transmission*"

With this the Field Commander called off the assault and sent word to the Dundorf army that Alorian Imperial Army forces were disengaging and falling back from the boarder.

Currently Alorian Medivac teams and Medical crews have been deployed along with engineers to take count of the wounded and dead.


Kaiser announces unusual wedding

With the Kaiser just turning 50 this year there were many in the Peoples Assembly that have been waiting to see when the Kaiser would announce the marriage of his heir, Issac Waldreich. The Kaiser did just that today making an announcement that both shocked the Peoples Assembly and the people but also caused many political thinkers to see the importance of the marriage.

"I have grown old, and some would say wise...but I sometimes think I am still a fool, then I realise that though I have gained wisdom over the years, I am still unwise in many ways. But the time has come for me to name the sucessor to my throne, as well as to announce his wedding to the one who we have arranged for him to wed. In a show of good faith, and the spirits of keeping the Waldreich family strong, I hereby announce that my son Issac Waldreich first born to Kaiser Garren Waldreich shall marry Shelia Waldreich first daughter to Garrus Waldreich." with that the Kaiser stepped down from the podium of the Peoples Assembly.

Both the Peoples Assembly and th populace reacted with mixed reaction some saying that it was a bit ackward to see the next Kaiser married to his cousian, other said that Civil Rights of all people including the Kaiser and his kin should be protected. But many political thinkers see this as a way to maintain control of both the Imperial Throne and the Alorian Imperial Army.

Under the current Monarchist laws the Military is for the most part a Hereditary position granted to the Waldreich family. However the Peoples Assembly sees it as the position of Head of Government as well as rule of the military meaning the position is up for a vote during elections.

There are some who believe this will soon changing placing the Military directly under control of the Royal Family, to do that would require the Royal Family and bloodline to marry into the current controller of the Alorian Imperial Army.

To break it down, the marriage is an attempt by Kaiser Garren Waldreich to solidify his control over the Military through a means that even his brother Garrus Waldreich can not challenge. Since the two brothers took control of the country there has been rumors of bad blood between the two and Garren has stated he fears his brother Garrus may seek to take control of the throne. However they are simply rumors that no information has been found to prove it.

Alorian Imperial Army intesifies strikes against PDA

Image
Alorian Imperial Army moving additional forces around Al'Mora

The Alorian Imperial Army along with help from the Civil Defense Forces have begun a nation wide sweep for possible Peoples Democratic Army members and leadership. The staged assault against AIA forces that led to a boarders skirmish against the Alorian Military and the Military of Dundorf was seen around the world as an act of terror that threatened the peace and security of the region. Dundorf, Zardic, and Dorvik all denounced the attacks by the PDA as an open act of terror. This has led to a stand down of all AIA operations around the boarder region with Dundorf as the AIA and the local CDF are focusing their efforts on destroying the PDA's ability to stage further assaults.

Al'Mora has been the scene of the heaviest fighting with the CDF from neighboring townships and cities converging along with AIA forces it is believed that Al'Mora is in fact the town in which the PDA and PDF run all their operations from and is in control of PDA forces. Soon after the attack with Dundorf many of the munitions and weapons used by the AIA that had been held back in reserve had came up missing. Later these weapons where used in several strikes against AIA Convoy's. Since then CDF in Al'Mora has come under constant strikes.

The Alorian Imperial Airforce has sent 2 squadrons of Strategic Bombers along with 10 Fighter Squadrons into the area of Al'Mora in an attempt to control the situation. Field Commander Houwtzmen announced that word has been sent into Al'Mora that all civilians are given 48 hours to leave the town, any that remain will be considered PDF and PDA forces and the AIA will take the town through forces. Alread several percision Artillery Strikes could be seen as small 500lbs shells landed in a parking garage believed to be held by PDA snipers and a possible PDA ammo depot.

Remembering the Fallen

The final tally has been submitted of total loses by the Alorian Miliary during the previous skirmish on the boarder with Dundorf Forces. It is not known the casualities suffered on the otherside:

Alorian Army Injured: 368
Alorian Army Killed: 149
Civil Defense Forces Injured: 124
Civil Defense Forces Killed: 83

Kommanduer Waldreich stated that there was to be a day of National Mourning over the loss of valuble troops and honorable men.

Cooperative Strikes against PDA leaves them shattered

Recent intense strikes against various PDA and PDF strongholds preformed by Alorian Imperial Army and Dundorf Military forces in the south of Aloria has rendered huge results. Several PDA leaders and organizers have been killed in strikes along with many others being arrested. A trial for these leaders are expected to be held over the next year and if convicted the leaders will be executed on national television. The Alorian CDF has also been going through other regions and arresting PDF members after an insider outed a way to find their membership, the name of the insider is being kept from the public at this time.

Dundorf Military has been instrumental in finding and destroying underground bunkers, warehouses, and depots held by the PDA. The city of Al'Mora a PDA stronghold was engaged by a cooperative Alorian and Dundorf Military strike with artillery, armor, and troops entering the city. After 4 days of intense airstrikes by the Dundorf Airforce and the shelling from Alorian Artillery, the PDA resistance was destroyed. The total confirmed dead has not been released but it is estimated that civilian causalities was kept to a minimum thanks to precision strikes by the Dundorf Airforce.


Dundorf sends trainers to Aloria

In a show of solidarity the nation of Dundorf sent military trainers and advisers to Aloria to assist them in the training of Alorian troops to use the latest in military hardware. The Alorian Imperial Army has recently contracted a deal where Alorian weapons and armor will be supervised by the Dundorf military in order to bring Aloria's military to a better standing. It is expected that the complete modernization of the Alorian military will take upwards to 23 years but once done it will also have the ability to assist the Dundorf military in future operations. Current Kommandeur Waldreich has stated that, "it will not be in my lifetime but in my daughters lifetime we will have a military worthy of protecting this nation."

The Leopold II tank preformed extremely well in the previous combat engagements and it is expected that it will replace all current tanks as the MBT for the Alorian Army.

PROTESTS AGAINST KAISER
Image
Protesters in the capital
December20th, 3617

Hundreds of Draddeg and Sildars ethnic protesters turned out in Llanymôr to protest the monarchy and the rule of the Kaiser. Many openly expressed distaste for a Dundorfian-Alorian monarchy and called for greater ethnic balance in the heights of government. Ethnic tensions have been boiling over for months now with the explosion of political groups in Aloria. The Government of National Unity in Parliament has also recently become fractured, with the high profile resignation of the Internal Affairs Minister. The protests have largely been peaceful so far but many fear it will only take one incident before a downward spiral of violence could take hold.
