The Freedom Pamphlet


Republic! Win 2/3 Majority as Future of Hobrazia Looks Up!

Republic! have stormed to success in the first fully democratic elections for a decade, taking the Presidency and the National People’s Council with over a 2/3 majority. In a night that saw Republic! take all five regions in Hobrazia, the Muscat regimes has finally come toppling down after over a decade of oppression.

The ingoing Prime Minister, Konstantine Tsintsadve, hailed the electoral result, saying that the people had demanded the return of an open and honest politics, and had mandated the Republic! party to achieve that. He said that this would begin by a full criminal investigation into the oppressive regime of Muscat and Steiner. He also talked about the need to remove power from the role of President, making sure the Head of State was purely ceremonial.

The new President echoed these words, telling the Freedom Pamphlet, “Although I understand my role is to merely be ceremonial, I am the figurehead of the free people of Hobrazia; the embodiment of the return to democracy in our wonderful country. I hope I can live up to the voters’ expectations.” Yet these comments have already been met with scorn from some Legislativists from within the Republic! party, with Internal Affairs Minister, Gogolidze stating: “Embodiment indeed. The Head of State must be abolished from our political system as it grants to much power to a single individual. These election results are amazing, but there is still a lot of work to go.”

So as Hobrazia looks forward to its first government change in over a decade, we are greeted with a time of fresh optimism and hope. It is now up to the Republic! party to deliver what the voters so desperately demanded: A free Hobrazia.

Shoshan warns of 'extreme' policies of Republic! Party after DNP Election Defeat

Leader of the opposition Andrew Shoshan has expressed concern about the intentions and abilities of his successor Konstantine Tsintsadve, who recently became prime minister after the DNPs humiliating election defeat. Shoshan stated that the Republic! party is potentially hazardous to Hobrazian unity and stability. The former Prime Minister pledged to hold the new government fully to account and stated that DNP cabinet ministers will only ever act to support national interests and not for the interests of the new coalition.

Although I congratulate the new prime minister on his successful election campaign, I must stress my concerns of whether his party truly represents the national interests. The Republic! party hold fanatical factions which must be diminished or dealt with, in order for unity and stability to prevail. The people can be rest assured, that the opposition will endeavour to hold the prime minister to account and will ensure the matters that the people care for are addressed by the national council.

National Democratic Party seizes power from interim government
February, 4677

Muzal K’alak’i, Muzalkaz - In a rare turn of political fortunes the National Democratic Party and their respective party leadership proclaimed victory in a "snap election" that was organized without the governments knowledge or approval. Despite this, the majority of political support has been levied towards the new National Democratic Party-lead government. The outgoing government lead by former Prime Minister Aleksandre Abuladze has announced that it will accept the legitimacy of the somewhat random, odd "People's Election" and will willingly turn over the government to the National Democratic Party. At the forefront will be President of the "State of Hobrazia" while the interim Hobrazian National Council seeks to build a new constitution. A draft of the Constitution was provided to the Unified Press Association of Hobrazia and Artania for review, the new government will be entitled as the "Hobrazian Democratic Federative Republic" and will draw on support from the majority of the Hobrazian population but also the neglected minorities of Kurassian's and Hobrazian Kozacks. In his first speech before the assembled interim Hobrazian National Council, the incoming government relayed that they would be able to form a government and solidify the constitution within the next several weeks and would be concluded by March, 4677.

It is the first time that a true Hobrazian government has attempted to right the minority-based governments for several decades. The last was the Hobrazian Nationalist Committee which again brought together Hobrazians, Kurassian's and Hobrazian Kozacks. Chairman of the NDP and interim President Alexei Zakariadze noted that the Hobrazian government was going to work to build a government made up of those who represented Hobrazia best, including the Hobrazian Kozacks who were some of the first settlers from Keris, notably Trigunia who helped form the basis of modern Hobrazian language. A bevy of new officials have been appointed by President Zakariadze, including a new commanding officer of the Armed Forces of Hobrazia, now titled as "Hobrazian Defense Forces". The new Chief of the Defense Forces is Hobrazian General Amiran Abuselidze who will be charged with overhauling the large but poor equipped and funded military. The incoming head of the Ministry of Defense, Meliton Liparteliani has stated that the overhaul and reform of the Hobrazian Defense Forces and the Ministry of Defense is paramount to the success and defense of the Hobrazian people.

The new Minister of Internal Affairs welcomed the challenge, former police officer Konstantine Urushadze who is tapped to lead the shattered Ministry of Internal Affairs has already hit the ground running. He announced that the Public Security Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs would be overseen by Lieutenant General of the Police Revazi Geladze and would have a comprehensive report on the status of the national police within six months. He announced that the Traffic Police Department would be taken over by Major General of the Police Azat Chabukiani and would be given six months to provide a comprehensive report on the status of the Traffic Police. The Minister of Internal Affairs noted that the formation of the "Internal Troops" akin to a national guard would be formed within the year and would be responsible for civil defense, riot control and assisting in search and rescue operations. The current Border Police would be reformed into the Border Troops and would be placed underneath the command and control of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and will receive military training and be equipped as a military force but will focus on civilian law enforcement style duties.

Finance Minister and former Vice President of the Foreign Trade Bank, a private entity that operated much of the former governments foreign trade, Givi Pirtskhalaishvili will close the Hobrazian National Stock Exchange for several weeks while a corporate register is formally established within the Ministry of Finance. The Ministry of Finance will create a new government organization responsible for economic supervision, it will be known as the State Economic Planning Committee and will be charged with overview of the Hobrazian economy. The Finance Minister is expected to visit several Artanian neighbors looking to drive foreign investment in Hobrazia. Under a direct act of legislation by the Hobrazian National Council the Ministry of Finance was granted exclusive rights to all ports in Hobrazia and placed them underneath the newly formed State Border Committee, the de facto customs and immigration/emigration authority who will have some command and control shared with the Ministry of Internal Affairs. The act also made the Foreign Trade Bank a de facto holding of the Ministry of Finance and will be responsible for sometime as an import-export bank of Hobrazia. Vasil Tarkhnishvili was announced as the new Governor of the State Bank of Hobrazia and is expected to meet with the interim President and Chairman of the Council of Ministers.

The incoming Chairman of the Council of Ministers held a press conference with the Minister of Trade and Industry, the Minister of Education and Culture as well as the Ministers of Infrastructure and Transportation and Science and Technology. The press conference was aimed at building the infrastructure of Hobrazia over the course of 25 years. First and foremost was the development of a national infrastructure plan that would replace the current highway and freeway system. Science and Technology Minister Rostom Tsulukidze noted that the development of network infrastructure for internet and mobile phones was paramount for "...freedom and success of the Hobrazian economy."

NDP merges into the Unified Social Democratic Party
January, 4678

Muzal K’alak’i, Muzalkaz - After nearly one year in power, the National Democratic Party has merged numerous left-wing political parties and organizations into the Unified Social Democratic Party. At the 1st Party Congress the delegates elected previous Chairman of the National Democratic Party, the largest component of the new USDP, as the General-Secretary of the Unified Social Democratic Party. The former Political Secretary of the NDP, , was elected as the Deputy General-Secretary. Many outside political commentators claimed that the National Democratic Party was a "right-wing" or "center-right" political party, notably many Artanian spectators but the rise of the USDP has changed that course. It would appear that Hobrazia will be ruled by a left-wing nationalist party. In one of its first acts before the Hobrazia National Council, the USDP outlawed all political parties (that were not wings of its own party) and provided authority to the state and party to ensure that they remain the only political party. All current government ministers were granted Full Member status within the Central Committee and further Full Member status within the Political Bureau of the Central Committee; others including the Chief of the Defense Staff were appointed to the Central Committee and the Political Bureau. In a Hobrazian-based anomaly, the Secretariat of the Central Committee gained a "leadership" post, while the General-Secretary retains de facto control, the appointment of a First Secretary to assist in the management of party-based affairs will be a rare move for a rather standard organization left-wing political party. Despite this, the political fortunes of Hobrazia appear to be on the rise.

Nearly a year following the announcement that the Ministry of Internal Affairs would form a dedicated national guard force, the Minister of Internal Affairs announced that the Internal Troops of Hobrazia had been formed and would provide a wide array of duties to the government and people of Hobrazia. Minister Urushadze announced that Hobrazian Kozack Mykhajlo Semenovych Nechyporenko would serve as the first Commander of the Internal Troops of Hobrazia. Similarly he announced that Kurassian Ariqshu Unazhokovy would be appointed as the Commander of the Border Troops. The initial reports that were demanded by incoming Minister of Internal Affairs Urushadze from the Public Security Department and Traffic Police Department were provided and their testimony was accepted before one of the first meetings of the Central Committee and the Political Bureau. The Border Troops conducted a series of exercises on their northern (Luthori), western (Narikaton and Darnussia) and southern (Malivia) borders to test their preparedness for a first strike. The Border Troops are largely organized as light infantry and have access to limited amounts of armor and artillery, they are primarily a delaying force in the event of a first strike. According the Ministry of Internal Affairs the exercise was a success and the Border Troops would be working to ensure that they can repel a first strike from "...any neighbor." The Internal Troops are likely to have a similar exercise when it comes to domestic terrorism and foreign terrorism on home soil within the coming months.

Despite the outward appearance that the government has shifted towards socialism or communism, President Alexei Zakariadze has promised a "...mixed market economy that will focus on domestic equality and prosperity but will also focus on developing Hobrazian markets abroad." Finance Minister Givi Pirtskhalaishvili announced that the Hobrazian National Stock Exchange had been opened and the "State Register of Corporations" had been formally re-organized, allowing new corporations to register. The State Economic Planning Committee announced that the government would have "ownership" over the economy and would be underneath the direct supervision of the SEPC and it's authority derived from the Unified Social Democratic Party and the state itself. Despite this, foreign observers have noted that it is "...business as usual..." and that the move appears to just grant authority to the SEPC and the USDP to focus the economy towards its needs and desire. Minister of Defense Meliton Liparteliani and Chief of the Defense Force Staff General Amiran Abuselidze announced in a joint conference with the Finance Ministry that the Hobrazian defense industry was going to attempt domestic production at a "...limited number of programs..." and that its focus would be on purchasing equipment and supplies from Artanian nations that are willing to sell to them and from Trigunia, one of the worlds largest arms dealers.

Internal Troops meet opposition in northern Muzalkaz
March, 4678

Muzalkaz Region - Elements of the Internal Troops of Hobrazia operating the Muzalkaz region of Hobrazia came under attack by members of a radical, pro-monarchy group during a routine training exercise. The commanding officer of the Muzalkaz District of the Internal Troops of Hobrazia, Colonel Arkady Guramishvili stated that the attack was unprovoked and that several Internal Troop soldiers were killed and dozens more wounded before local police and other Internal Troop units were mobilized. This is the first outbreak of political terrorism since the rise of the Hobrazian Democratic Federative Republic and the rise of the National Democratic Party and its successor the Unified Social Democratic Party. Colonel Guramishvili stated that Internal Troop units were working with local police and Internal Troop intelligence units to provide up to date information on the situation. The pro-monarchist terror group known as the Free Purple League, the traditional color of Hobrazia and often seen as a homage to the Hobrazian past, has conducted terrorist attacks in the past and was once considered an enemy of the Hobrazian Nationalist Committee several decades ago. President Alexei Zakariadze condemned the attack and noted that "...all resources were being deployed to route out the traitors and enemies of the people of Hobrazia." Despite the upward trend that Hobrazia has been on the past year, the country lacks significant defense and intelligence capabilities; many of the former agencies and services of the government were suspended or disbanded following the rise of the Hobrazian Democratic Federative Republic due to corruption and abuse of power, many of them have not been reorganized or restored.

According to leaked internal memos and reports, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Defense have a principal agreement to form a domestic intelligence service, a foreign intelligence service and dedicated military intelligence service. The domestic intelligence service will be known as the "State Security Service" (Hobrazian: სახელმწიფო უსაფრთხოების სამსახური; sakhelmts’ipo usaprtkhoebis samsakhuri; SUS), the foreign intelligence service will be known as the "Hobrazian Intelligence Service" (Hobrazian: ჰობრაზის სადაზვერვო სამსახური; hobratis sadazvervo samsakhuri; HSS) and the military intelligence will be known as the "Military Intelligence Service" (Hobrazian: სამხედრო დაზვერვის სამსახური; samkhedro dazvervis samsakhuri; SDS). The formation of many of these is expected within the coming months, especially given this first act of political violence and terrorism.

Tensions continue in northern Muzalkaz
May, 4678

Hobrazian Internal Troops are greeted by a local Hobrazian Orthodox Priest during fighting in northern Muzalkaz

Northern Muzalkaz - The outbreak of tensions in northern Muzalkaz has prompted the Commander of the Internal Troops Major General Mykhajlo Nechyporenko to form a quick response force to assist in combating several dozen political groups across the country, but namely in northern Muzalkaz. In a press conference with the Commander of the Border Troops, Major General Nechyporenko noted the formation of the 1st Independent Aviation Regiment, it will be equipped with rotary wing aircraft taken from the Hobrazian Air Force. The aircraft, Mi-8 "Hip-C" transportation helicopters, will be relatively small in number but will be based out of Muzal K’alak’i. The fighting was largely against the Purple League, a pro-monarchist, radical political organization but since the crackdown on political opposition, several other groups have joined in. Despite this, the reinforcements from the Border Troops has been essential to the success of the conflict and the Ministry of Internal Affairs estimated that the conflict which is considered "low-intensity" will be completed by January, 4680 due to the necessity of "rule of law" and the "...process of the civilian courts that these traitors will be brought before." Foreign officials and political commentators have doubted the credibility of such claims and expect that the opposition groups are being rounded up and executed though no proof exists for such claims. Despite the fact that Hobrazia is teetering on the brink, many countries around Hobrazia are pleased to have a somewhat stable government in Muzal, especially after decades of constant government collapses and problems with stability. The State Border Committee, the government agency responsible for the overall management of immigration, emigration and border security of Hobrazia has reported an "uptick" in tourism and this is confirmed by a report by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. While Muzalkaz has been a hotbed of tension and armed conflict, the rest of Hobrazia remains largely calm.
