Message from President Manukyan!

My people, the Istalians don’t want this! The budget on defence is extatically high in the Pontesian budget. The Istalians are weak and their loss of identity due to Multiculturalism shows that I can’t say you are a nation. Your land is full of dirt and a bit of nuclear warfare would clear your pathetic aliens out. I as President Of Pontesi, 1) send a naval blockade against Istalia with 50 cruiser blocking the seas. 2) Deploy nuclear weapons across Pontesi ready to be launched at any time. Ladies and gentlemen it’s time for Istalia to stop their behaviour or nukes will be knocking on their door. Pontesi is ready for blood sacrifice and territorial gains against Istalia and any other Majatran nation willing to fight for Socialism we will kill them too.

President Manukyan with increased defence budget buys 1,500 Tanks, 200 Aircraft,50 Warships, and 20 ballistic missiles as economy and Military increases.

With conflict growing likely, the President announced a military increase to defend the Pontesian sovereignty that the voters voted for the Right-wing Republican Party. Manukyan also announced that economic increases were shownas businesses come to Pontesi to show Capitalist strength. Pontesi also doesn’t recognise the Istalian government until the Right-wing party is in power and calms the situation by willing to solve the situation. President Manukyan isn’t scared of nations around Terra ganging up on Pontesi and is willing to fight back at all costs, most Pontesians view the President as calm and strong. 8-)

New Progressives win Presidency and Senate Majority in 4501 elections
May 21, 4501

Following a grueling four years under control of the Manukyans once again, the people of Pontesi have spoken and handed an electoral win to the New Progressives! This comes after a very turbulent time where the Republican Party sparked an international crisis after enslaving foreign citizens within Pontesi's borders, mainly focusing on those from Istalia. Later in the previous term, NPPoP officials including leader Azad Ismailyan seeked refuge within Istalia until power was driven away from the Republican Party. These officials elected to stay in Istalia until reforms were passed in Pontesi that would allow easy legal entry into the country. In the meantime, NPPoP Senator and Party Deputy Taline Dadourian will work as acting Federal President until Ismailyan is able to return.

The New Progressives will immediately begin work to restore Pontesi to the point before the Manukyans took over. Work has already begun to free the foreigners that the Manukyan Regime enslaved. In addition to that, the NPPoP have already begun voting on measures to abolish slavery, segregation, and discrimination once again, as well as restoring civil liberties and opening international relations. The New Progressives plan to hold the Manukyans accountable for their actions, beginning to explore possibilities of trying the officials of the regime before a court of law. This will be a term spend hard at work at repairing the damage the Republican Party has caused for this nation as well as others.

The New Progressive Party of Pontesi introduces act to end sanctions and foreigner enslavement
September 17, 4501

Work has begun to repair the damages caused by the Manukyan Regime. The NPPoP has introduced the International Reparation Act that seeks to end the enslavement of foreigners and economic sanctions imposed by the said regime. Acting Federal President Taline Dadourian has also rescinded the orders of the now-former President Manukyan, calling off the deployment of nuclear weapons across Pontesi and the naval blockade against Istalia. At the passage of the first parts of the Progressive Restoration Act in January of next year, Azad Ismailyan plans to travel back to Pontesi where he can be formally inaugurated and officially begin work as Federal President to help bring Pontesi out of the dark times that were the previous administration.

The New Progressives vow opposition to Imperial Party's latest omnibus bill
April 24, 4523

Over a decade after dealing with an oppressive regime that legalized slavery and banning such a practice once again, Pontesi is once again on the heels of reinstating the horrid practice. The Imperial Party introduced an omnibus bill that included the legalization of slavery, among other policies that the New Progressive Party was against. Former Federal President and current Party Leader Armen Istamboulian expressed his opposition to this bill on the Senate floor, as well as expressed interest the few of the proposals his party did agree with being discussed in the separate legislation. In a recent press conference following this statement, he assured that the New Progressive Party will stand strong as the opposition party in the Senate and fight any effort to undermine democracy and the freedoms of the Pontesian People.

Pontesi has a history of fighting over the legalization of slavery, the previous efforts to reinstate the practice was done by the Republician Party led by the Manukyans. The New Progressives banned slavery and the slave trade after regaining power from the Manukyans after both times that regime ruled.

Establishment of the State of Pontesi
August, 4546

Dawnstar - At the head of the Legionary Faction, stands the new leader of the "State of Pontesi" Servius Varius Iustinus who was elected a little over a year ago. The election of July 4544 saw the politico-military elements of the Armed Forces of Pontesi revolt against the unstable communist regime that had arrived in Pontesi. Underneath the temporary stewardship of a caretaker government, the elections of July 4544 saw the Legionary Faction, sometimes called the Legion Faction, arrive in control over the Pontesian state. At the forefront was former General in the Pontesian Armed Forces, Servius Varius Iustinus, a prominent military strategist and political-military theorist that had earned the ire of the communist regime. Upon his election he immediately announced himself as the "First Senator, Supreme Commander and Master of the World" and announced the foundation of the State of Pontesi, this move was orchestrated as a de facto military takeover, loyalist elements of the military were appointed to both military and civil posts, notably in the police, security and intelligence fields. One of the first moves of Iustinus was the appointment of Flavius Volcatius Victorinus, a close fellow soldier and life-long friend, as the magister militum praesentalis the "Master of Soldiers In Presence" essentially the "deputy supreme commander" of the armed forces and the day-to-day operator of the armed forces as a whole. Immediately proceeding this the wide-scale reform of the aging, ineffective Pontesian military was begun.

The first step in the military reform was the establishment of a central command authority, the Pontesian leader and his deputy created the Central Military Authority (centralis militaris auctoritate) which the magister militum praesentalis will lead with the Master of Soldiers (Magister Militum) who will operate as the chief of staff of the central military authority. The Master of Soldiers (Magister Peditum) will serve as the commander of the Pontesian Legions also known as the Pontesian Army. The Master of the Calvary (Magister Equitum) will serve alongside the Master of Soldiers as the commander of the mechanized, motorized and armored units of the Pontesian Legions. The Master of the Navy (Magister Classem) will serve as the commander of the naval forces and finally will be joined by the Master of the Air Forces (Magister Vim Aeris). Alongside the reform of the Central Military Authority will be the establishment of the Pontesian Intelligence Service, which for the foreseeable future, will handle all intelligence and security related functions of the Pontesian Armed Forces. In his first speech to the arrayed legions of poorly equipped and poorly trained troops, Iustinus stated that he would be reforming the Pontesian budget to focus on "several matters" including bringing back a sense of honor and integrity to the armed forces that had suffered underneath numerous governments.

One of the largest overhauls within Pontesi was the appointment of Kaeso Volumnius Decmitius as the "Master of Offices" the head of government of the Pontesian State. His appointment signalled that the Legionary Faction was serious about wide-ranging government reform and in few short months several dozen government agencies were folded into each other, some outright eliminated and the government structure streamlined. The return to the ancient "Diocese" manner of organization allowed for more central government oversight of regions of Pontesi during this time. One of the primary goals was the establishment of trade and commerce with foreign countries that had largely ignored Pontesi as a sort of political pariah. Decmitius re-established the Imperial East Terra Company, alongside forming the Imperial North Terra Company and the Imperial South Terra Company which would be chartered to oversee all trade with countries in their sphere of influence respectively. This effectively semi-privatized trade within Pontesi as the companies were a joint public-private venture. The Campus Stella Stock Market was formed, the first of its kind in recent history was an amalgamation of several dozen other smaller trade houses and markets within Pontesi, the movement was hailed by financial activist seeing the option of the CSSM to become a strong competitor in the Majatran market. As of 4546 the CSSM has been active for 8 months, launching in January 4546. Underneath the auspicious oversight of the Office of Finance and Commerce (Officium rebus oeconomicis et commerciorum) and Master (Minister) of Finance and Commerce (Magister Rebus oeconomicis et commerciorum) Zohrab Petrosyan, a veteran banker and international economics expert, the domestic and foreign trade and commerce will likely see its largest periods of growth and expansion in recent history.

Pontesi will likely have to work to determine its future in the increasingly hostile and divided world. It is likely that the Pontesian state will play all sides in order to benefit as greatly as possible during its period of serious rebuilding.

Military Dictatorship Overthrown
Optimates Return to Power
November 4549

Pontesi's Legionary military dictatorship has resigned following an electoral trashing. The dictatorship followed its many recent predecessor in failing to survive politically. The newly elected Soldiers' Assembly is heavily dominated by members of the Pontesian patrician class who benefited greatly from the leadership of Hayk Valerian Gorinius, a member of the prominent Gorinius family which has led the patricians at various times in history to dominance of the state, marshalling the ancient Optimates faction. Gorinius promised to restore a "true republic of merit and liberty." The last Gorinius, Fabius Valerian Gorinius III formed a short-lived republic in 4288 and his descendant hopes that his own experiment may last longer.

Gorinius plans to restore a collegial republic governed by a Council of Magisters elected by a new legislature, the Great Council. According to him, Pontesi's strategic positioning at the meeting point for several seas along with its own heavily diverse populace arm it with great advantage in trade and diplomacy. As tensions ramp up all over Terra, the Magisters will be sure to exploit this to maximum advantage.

Economy Fires Off
October 4550

The Pontesian economy appears ready to leave behind its long period of sluggish growth. The country's annual growth projection have been radically revised from 1.7% to 7.4% for 4551. A "mad rush" in foreign investment has seen the country's projected foreign investment for the next five years raised from a puny 1.5 billion LOD to 25 billion LOD. Much of the investment will be directed at the country's less traditional sectors such as forestry and agriculture and more towards the more modern sectors of shipping, tourism and tech.

Several economic powers and industrial giants have pledged to invest large sums into the Pontesian economy, attracted by its radical liberalisation program. The government has so far gamely resisted attempts to link this investment to political alliance and is welcoming it from regimes of all kinds. It seems quite likely that the estimated 78% of all public servants who are getting dismissed over the next five years will find work in the private sector relatively easily.

Golden Book League Protests "Liberalisation of Status"

Image
A copy of the Golden Book

The organisation in charge of keeping records of all patrician families, the Golden Book League has loudly protested the government's plan to liberalise the requirements for attaining patrician status. Currently one has to be born to a registered family and new registrations are rare due to the very high requirements - a net worth of at least 500,000 LOD and or descent from a registered family. The government plans to reduce these requirements to a mere "net contributor to the national treasury" as part of its Voting Privileges Act. This may lead to the number of patricians rising steeply from 1.3% of the population to close to 15%. The Council of Magisters has dismissed the League's concerns and argues that its reforms will allow new blood into the country's patriciate and reinvigorate it.
