Ein Weg zur Erlösung // Der Unabhängige
A Path to Redemption // The Independent

After centuries of political instability and division, with communism and fascism overpowering local politics, a new group has sprung up to create 'a new, moderate, safe Dundorf'. The credibility of Dundorf on the world stage has long been diminished by extremism, and the nation remains one of the least stable in Artania. The 'Radical Republican Party', or RRP, has staked itself out as a new political force designed to 'open Dundorf up to its neighbours', while refusing to 'sell-out' the culture of its residents. With a polarised political system in Dundorf, can the party act as a kingmaker in elections and push through a moderate agenda? Only time will tell, but The Independent brings to you the details of the new party.

Led by the charismatic Dustin von Hertz-Frey, a former stock exchange broker in the capital who made his fortunes riding the risky economy expertly, the party is globalist and seeks to open up Dundorf, but does not want to integrate Dundorf into the rest of the world culturally - instead to grow it into a regional power. Through an open trade policy, which includes scrapping tariffs and low corporation tax - as well as controversially allowing foreign businesses free-reign in the Dundorfian economy - the party seeks to grow the Dundorfian economy. It will also invest massively in upcoming technologies, in order to give Dundorf a 'major advantage in the economy of tomorrow' - a slogan popular among the party.

The RRP is also seeking to empower Dundorf, which has became relatively weak in comparison to the two major powers that surround it - Dorvik to the north and Luthori to the south. Plans include increasing military spending and investing in experimental equipment that can allow Dundorf to defend itself against invasion. Though their military policy remains overall dovish in terms of interventionism or aggressive tactics, the party certainly is not looking to weaken Dundorf to make it 'unterdorvik' or 'upper Luthori' - as it has been cruelly dubbed by some unsavoury characters. The RRP also hopes to combine into these positions a modern and liberal social policy - will this combine in their favour?

Hertz-Frey Greift NLP-Vorschläge An // Der Unabhängige
Hertz-Frey Attacks NLP Proposals // The Independent

Image
Above: Dustin von Hertz-Frey

After a series of proposals to the Bundestag from the far-left, communist New Left Party, leader of the new RRP Dustin von Hertz Frey blasted the 'insane and incoherent policies' of the NLP, who he said 'lack the mental ability' to govern. One major source of criticism was the controversial 'Agriculture Act', that bans pesticides and genetic modifications - as well as breaking up large farms. Not only is this proposal 'utterly insane', according to field experts, but will likely greatly reduce the food output of Dundorf to a level 'never before seen', according to one scientist. It could lead to an up to 76% reduction in food output by Dundorf, but this has not stopped it from passing - with the NLP not able to defend the proposal reasonably.

Another series of political blunders that have miraculously managed to get into the lawbook are several proposals to bring major national infrastructure under the direct oversight of the Bunderstag - including proposals around appointment of military officers and the central bank. Hertz blasted this controversial proposal for 'totally failing to understand basic politics', and said that such vital infrastructural issues should not be partisanly controlled by the legislature - allowing for an uptake in corruption. Another rather bizarre proposal for a communist party - another proposal due to get through - is allowing an aristocracy to be reborn in Dundorf, making titles inheritable even if someone has done nothing to earn it.

But by far the greatest offending article is the bizarre bill called simply 'freedom' that is due to pass. Not only does it have the odd aristocracy article, but it has a few sections of sheer insanity. It allows anyone to take citizenship of the country, which economists say will greatly depress wages as it allows easy immigration and thus easy worker exploitation - another rather strange proposal for a 'communist' party. Another weird proposal is getting rid of identity cards - which are invaluable to employers, the financial sector and the police. In this way, the Independent strongly discourages readers from voting for the NLP, even as a joke, due to the high irregularity of these proposals and the seeming idiocy of their leadership.

NEUES DUNDORF: BUNDESKANZLER LUDENDORF TO RESIGN

After the 4365 election Otto Ludendorf, Bundeskanzler since 4359, announced that he did not plan to continue to serve another term. He was flanked by President Wagner, and many other party officials. Many pundits believe this precipitates a run for Bundespräsident.

AfD gains seats as Communists ask for PARAMILITARIES!!

We will seek to destroy the KPD and the SED and the NAP in their Commie tracks! Conservatism is the best ideology because it’s democratic and does this at the will of the people. “I see Nationalism as the love of the country” said the new leader of the party Mikhail Stresemann. This is a new day to get rid of commies, and to think that the DPD and the AfD need to be banned is as ludicrous as the Stalin Dictatorship we live in. Communism,Socialism and Barbarians they are ALL the same.

This is what the AfD ACTUALLY believes in

We believe that Conservative democracy should be at the heart of Dundorf
We believe the people have the right to choose
We believe finally believe that the people should understand to vote for the AfD, and this is their slogan:

FOR CONSERVATISM! TAKE A LEAP TO A BRIGHTER FUTURE!!!

NEUES DUNDORF: SIEGMUND MÖLLER CONFIRMED AS NAP-VF 4387 NOMINEE
Image

8 December, Stadt Ludendorf, Dundorf

The members of the Parteisenat have met for the first time this week in Stadt Ludendorf, using the newly erected Parteikammer for its first official gathering. All 251 members of the Nationale Arbeiterpartei-Volksfront packed into the room, and began voting procedures.

Former Chairwoman of the State Council Anna Wagner spoke before the delegates, asking them to nominate her.

"I have served you well before, I will serve you well again. Nominate me for a brighter future!"

Many members of the Parteisenat erupted into applause, members of the so called "Old Guard" of the party - members from before the 4370 party switch. The other side of the chamber was fired up for Siegmund Möller, his so called "Red Rose Coalition" as his wife, Désirée Fournier-Möller, spoke on his behalf.

Image

"My husband will move this party forward! Madame Wagner claims to be the future, but all she represents is the past. To move forward we must get new leadership, and leave behind the era of the Wagner dynasty."

The Parteisenat ended up nominated Möller on the third ballot, 147 to 114. They also nominated the 95 members of the Nationales Parteikomitee, which will meet early next year with the 50 union delegates to decide the party platform.

NEUES DUNDORF: 20th ANNIVERSARY OF THE DDR!

6 February, 4390, Dosmund -

Image
A parade in the capital.

People from around the nation have gathered in the capital to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the founding of the DDR. The streets are lined with people waving the nation's flag, cheering and shouting with joy. In the streets the army paraded, playing marches and the national anthem. Otto Ludendorf, former Vorsitzender des Staatrates, gave a speech on the steps of the Volkskammer to the jubilant crowd.

"Twenty years our republic has endured; twenty years the worker has triumphed! I hope, as my party and the SED hopes, that our revolution will continue to triumph for decades and centuries to come, so that our children, and our children's children, may never need to suffer again!"

The festivities continued all day, with marches and parades scheduled back to back in the streets of the capital, and flags waving triumphantly from every building.

New party wins half of all seats in the Volkskammer; Voter turnout jumps to 80%

Rabesburg, January 4392. The Initiative: Future!! just one (1) seat from the majority. Voter fraud?

Image
New Vorsitzender des Staatrates Lysias Lachen, happy about the results

The true winner of these elections is the party, that last time participated in elections during 4315. No one would have expected, that a party which was said to have died a long time ago would win 375 seats during its first election in the DDR. Voter turnout also shows that the IZ!! pulled around 25 percent of voters to the polls. Are new winds howling in the Volkskammer? We asked the new Vorsitzender des Staatrates, Lysias Lachen.

So Mr. Lachen, did you expect so many seats?

Mr. Lachen: ,,No, I certainly did not! Although I was sure that many voters would participate in elections again, I couldn't fathom the thought of becoming the leader of the biggest party this quickly"

So you are happy with the results?

Mr. Lachen: ,,Not exactly. I would have been happy if we won 25 or 30 percent of the elections. It would have felt like an accomplishment. But now, it just feels like losing by one seat. But we will cooperate with the other parties nonetheless, especially since we live in a prospering community that holds together."

What will the cabinet look like?

Mr. Lachen: ,,Great question. The Ministerrat will split all seats equally to all parties with seats, with the IZ!! taking half of them. 6 resorts and the Vorsitzende of the Ministerrat are non-negotiable. Education and Culture, Environment and Tourism, Health and Social Services, Justice, Foreign, and Internal Affairs. The rest will be given to the SED, which will most likely ask for Science&Technology and Trade&Industry, as the only reached twenty (20) percent and it would be unfair that two parties that have a voter difference of ten (10) percent receive the same amount of ministries. Because of this, the remaining four (4) ministries are given to the NVF, which are Finance, Defence, Infrastructure and Transportation, and Food and Agriculture."

Thank you very much for this interview. We wish you the best in this new position.

Mr. Lachen: ,,Thank you very much!"

While the IZ!! received half the seats, the former biggest parties received a total of 50.3 percent of all votes. We asked ourselves, how high is the possibility that an equal 50/50 split happens in elections? The new IZ!! party almost won the majority and by this, would have been able to pass all bills they proposed. Also, they could have overturned the Socialist Protection Bill, which might end the current structures of the DDR. Is it because of that, that the votes might have been manipulated? We are forecasting rain, thunder, and potential major changes in our beloved fatherland.

Neues Dundorf: Otto Ludendorf, founder of the DDR, dies at 101; state funeral held in his honor

Image
Crowd gathered to watch the procession through Stadt Ludendorf

16 March, 4397 - Stadt Ludendorf

The nation fell silent earlier this year, when it was announced that Otto Ludendorf, political colossus of the NAP-VF, founder of the DDR, had died at 101. Mourners poured onto the streets, and a state funeral was arranged. The Volkskammer also approved a statue honoring him to be raised in his namesake city of Stadt Ludendorf.

Image

The procession began at the base of the new statue, with current ministers and party members placing flowers and wreaths at the base of it. It then marched through the streets of the city until it reached the old Bundestag, where they gathered and played the national anthem as Herr Ludendorf's cakset was projected onto the Bundestag for all to see. The weepy eyed crowd eventually dispersed, but no one will forget the impact the Herr Ludendorf had on an entire generation, and indeed the entire nation.

Neues Dundorf: Siegmund Möller meets Governor-General of the Holy Luthori Empire

Image
People gather outside the Luthori embassy in Dosmund to greet Marquis Samuel Weston, Governor General of Luthori.

April 16, 4400 - Dosmund, DDR

A jubilant crowd gathered outside the Luthori embassy in Dosmund to greet Marquis Samuel Weston to Dundorf, the first outside leader to visit since the creation of the DDR in 4370 - thirty years ago! The Governor-General and Siegmund Möller, our Chairman, will meet from April 16-25, in a summit to discuss important issues to both nations such as free trade, the environment, and worker's and human rights.

A pressing issue for our nation, we've been informed from sources close to the Chairman himself, will be ratification of the Dosmund Climate Accords, which would provide for tax breaks for nuclear and renewable energy, as well as a pledge to reduce carbon emissions by 10% in a decade. If ratified, these accords would require the Luthori government to change their stance on renewable energy, which many perceive as a large victory for the Chairman's agenda.

The general mood in the capital today is one of hope, as people begin to look once more to the future, no longer staying stagnant in the glories of the past or drudging through the present. We can only hope that good comes from these summits.
