Dankuk Greets Kazulian Special Emissary
____________________________________________________________________________________________

The Dranian Federation welcomes the visit of Aksel Holte, Special Emissary of the Kingdom of Kazulia. As Dankuk seeks to establish a more prominent role in pan-Dovani initiatives, this visit is one among many events on schedule for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This particular visit is of special importance due to the status of Kazulia as Dankuk's sole Dovanian neighbor and the history of hostilities between the two nations within the past century.

As the Dranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs meets with Mr. Holte's team, discussions are expected to focus on economic cooperation and international collaboration on infrastructure projects, such as a pan-Dovani highway. The Foreign Ministry has also released a statement that they are in the early stages of planning an official state visit to Kazulia, led by Federal Chairman Sun Seohyun.

Meetings with the Kazulian Special Emissary and his team will take place at Muhandae World Tower in Seongtaek, attended by Foreign Minister Nicolas Yulin, Transport Minister Marco Gyeo, Trade Minister Valentin Trujillo, and associated ministry representatives and aides. The Kazulian team has also been invited to attend dinner at the Premier House with Premier Hana Pastora de Santiago.

Premier Mangjuhl Unveils Ambitious Railway Plan
____________________________________________________________________________________________


Image

SEONGTAEK: Aligning with Premier Ryouichi Mangjuhl's nearly passed budget, which adds a great amount of new funding to the Ministry of Public Works & Transport and the Ministry of Science & Technology, the federal government has also unveiled an ambitious long-term plan for the development of a comprehensive rail transport system that serves the entire nation. With initial stages of this enormous infrastructure development project approved under the National Railways Act of 4478, Danrail will begin a process of modernization on its national high-speed rail line that services each of Dankuk's most major cities. Danrail is also working with engineering experts and leading rail operators to explore how to develop a railway that can operate with a high level of efficiency, punctuality, and safety.

Beyond the improvement of the existing national line, the Premier's plan aims to go much further, aiming to deliver rail service to the majority of Dranian communities with an ultimate goal of placing rail transportation as the go-to method of travel. The National Railways Act has authorized the government to provide subsidies and other support to private railway corporations as incentive for additional development that aligns with the master plan for national rail infrastructure. The government has already started reaching out to private companies to encourage expansion of urban commuter rail lines in major cities. There has also been an interest in using the development of rural rail lines to spark new economic growth and development along these rail lines that would connect outward from established major cities.

Meanwhile, as Danrail and private companies start to lay out development plans for building rail lines, the Office for Innovation and Research has been tasked with exploring cutting-edge railway infrastructure that could be integrated to either the national infrastructure project as a whole or into special regional lines. A variety of consultants have been brought in to assist in this task, including consultants from the accomplished Indralan technology corporation, Zhijia.

IGLESIA MAYOR: The Dankuk Cultural Institute is finalizing its planned submission to IESCO for the official designation of Dranian Global Heritage Sites. The full list has not yet been made public but it is known that Beonyeongsalm Palace and the Santa Sharika Historic District will be included. It is widely believed that the submission will also ask for recognition of key Dranian geographic features, such as the peak mountains near Yonseo or the fjords of northern Magadonia. (July 4478)

SEONGTAEK: BIDO, one of the leading toilet manufacturers in Dankuk, has begun a massive national campaign encouraging greater cleanliness and public health with a goal of convincing people to install BIDO's innovative, integrated bidet toilet seats in their homes. The company's CEO has said it is his aim to eliminate all use of squat toilets in Dankuk and to make advanced toilets the norm all across the nation. (February 4478)

PORT RHYNACH: After popular petition for her return to a role in government, Hana Pastora de Santiago has announced that she will take part in the upcoming elections for the federal chairmanship. Limited in actual power, the chairman position nonetheless has a key role in serving as a unitary symbol of the nation, at home and abroad. (August 4474)

PYEONGRYEO: Sō Yoko unveiled the opening of JiyuWorld Dankuk, an amusement park located on the abandoned grounds of the mostly demolished Sun Palace. The theme park, owned in part by the FangCaiRyeo Group, is the first of its kind in the Magadonia Province and features a mix of thematic, interactive exhibitions and traditional attractions and rides. Some controversy surrounds the park due to the conversion of the last remaining building of the Sun Palace into a haunted house. (May 4471)

Dankuk to Leave Northern Council
____________________________________________________________________________________________


SEONGTAEK: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced that Dankuk will soon be withdrawing from the Northern Council. The decision, coming from Premier Ryouichi Mangjuhl, is being seen as a move to align Dankuk with the realities of its current foreign policy and bilateral relationships. While membership in the Northern Council played an important role in normalizing Dankuk’s international standing following democratization, foreign policy remained centric on rebuilding the historic Indralan alliance. Premier Mangjuhl has stated that further announcements will be coming from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding both Indrala and broader involvement in international affairs.

Zhijia Prototypes Farming Tunnel in Yonseo
____________________________________________________________________________________________

YONSEO, Magadonia Province: Re-purposing an abandoned coal mine in the outskirts of Yonseo, Zhijia, with support from Haedodi Electronics, has constructed a new kind of vertical farm, located within a temperature controlled LED-lit tunnel absent of soil. With its sheltered location the crops are protected from the harsh weather typical to northern Dankuk and it could present new opportunities for domestic food production. Additionally, on the idea of re-purposing abandoned facilities, there is a greatly minimized impact on the Dranian natural environment, which remains closely protected by federal and local governments.

Premier Mangjuhl Restructures Federal Universities
____________________________________________________________________________________________


Image

SEONGTAEK: A long-standing objective of the federal government, dating to back to the de Santiago premiership, was the revamping of the national university system. Having operated for many decades on archaic policy and flawed structures, it has been a major challenge to address the Greater National University System. Officials from institutions of the GNUS has continued to lobby for overarching reform but progress has been impeded by disagreements within the federal system. Now, after months of negotiations with GNUS representatives, Premier Ryouichi Mangjuhl has announced that an agreement has been reached to start a process of complete restructuring of the federal university system.

This restructuring, entering its first stages next summer, will simplify the higher education bureaucracy within GNUS and allocate funding more fairly between all federal institutions. The reforms also clarify the relationship between the federal institutions organized under the GNUS with those nationally-funded public institutions that exist independently. Strategic plans for the GNUS aim to put its institutions on a more equal playing field with other institutions in Dankuk, hopefully elevating more federal universities to a status of prestige, beyond just the well-known Greater National University of Ulbrach. The current blueprint for restructuring places completion in the summer of 4485. The Greater National University System is composed of five institutions: GNU-Elbian in Soleunggo, GNU-Loren in Port Rhynach, GNU-Magadonia in Pyeongreo, GNU-Ulbrach in Iglesia Mayor, and GNU-Valdor in Cheonssu.

Ryeo Foundation Provides Grant for Agricultural Research
____________________________________________________________________________________________

MYNYDDOEDD CREIGIOG: The Ryeo Foundation has announced that it will fund a major grant to support innovative agricultural research projects that focus on sustainability and national self-sufficiency. Inspired by the breakthroughs in the Zhijia Yonseo mine farm, King of the Kyo Jiwoo stated that he believes it to be of extreme importance to enable research that can identify more ways for Dankuk to produce more food domestically. Due to much of Dankuk having a climate ill-suited for major agriculture, it has been an everlasting challenge for the nation to reduce its dependency on imported food goods and diversify domestic food production. The Ryeo Foundation has already stated that it will assistance in the expansion of Zhijia's project and moving forward it hopes to work with Dranian universities and researchers to fund even more projects.

In conjunction with announcing its new agricultural grant, the Ryeo Foundation has established a scholarship specific to the University of Agriculture in Cheonssu, supporting student and faculty research and projects.

IGLESIA MAYOR: The Dankuk Cultural Institute has officially submitted its first three candidates for IESCO World Heritage Site status. While more sites are planned to stand as candidates in the future, making the cut for this initial proposal are Beonyeongsalm Palace, the Royal Tombs of Baekgu, and The Norfiords.

LIFFANES: As the federal government continues along on its ambitious national rail project there has been growing interest in the protection of natural landscapes throughout many parts of Dankuk. While public support is strong for infrastructure development there remains a keen interest in environmental protection. This has been especially true in the rural regions affected by new railway construction and environmental groups are actively lobbying for careful urban planning surrounding the railways and how they are routed. And as new communities are slated to be constructed around these train routes, there is also focus on green development projects and urban walkability that would minimize need for major roadway construction.

Chairwoman Hana Pastora de Santiago Passes Away at 78
____________________________________________________________________________________________


Image

PORT RHYNACH: News broke early this morning that the Federal Chairwoman Hana Pastora de Santiago, aged 78, passed away peacefully in her sleep during the overnight hours. De Santiago, a former premier and the founder of the second Dranian Federation, has without a doubt been the most iconic figure in Dranian politics over the past century. Her fight for democracy and human rights won international recognition and beyond just her positive impact on domestic affairs, de Santiago led efforts to drastically improve foreign relations with Kazulia and Indrala. She would go on to receive the Order of Luminous Jade and Order of Friendship from the State of Indrala. Alongside Chief Minister Wei Jianxing, de Santiago would also found the Council of Localities for International Cooperation, establishing an international vehicle for coordination of "sister city" agreements. De Santiago would retire from politics in 4467, but still enjoying widespread popularity, she would be drawn back to government following a national petition calling for her to lead the Federal Council for Unity. In 4474, de Santiago would be elected as Federal Chairwoman and she was re-elected just this past year.

Still only a few hours since the initial announcement of her passing, there has been an outpouring of grief all across Dankuk. At the Federal Estate in Port Rhynach, a growing mass of flowers and notes have appeared at the front gate and a similar scene has been reported at de Santiago's personal residence in Iglesia Mayor. Premier Ryouichi Mangjuhl expressed his condolences for the de Santiago family and highlighted the enormous impact that she had on the nation and its people. The federal government has declared a period of mourning and plans are soon to be in the works for de Santiago's funeral in Iglesia Mayor.

At her final resting place, in accordance with de Santiago's wishes, her grave marker features a simple, gray plaque bearing her name, and date of birth and death.

Federal Council Issues Cautionary Statement on Monarchism
____________________________________________________________________________________________


Image

PORT RHYNACH: The Federal Council for Unity, prompted by the emergence of monarchist movements, has issued an official statement cautioning against the restoration of monarchy. Issuing the statement were cultural monarchs Jiwoo of the Kyo and Enrique of the Dranianos. The two monarchs, joined by members of the Federal Council, also expressed their distaste for the revival of imperial terminology, utilized by both newly emergent opposition parties. Whereas one is undoubtedly connected to the ousted criminal dictatorship, the other has oddly referenced an "empress" in their party doctrine, likely signaling some connections to the former dictatorship as well.
Over the course of history we have witnessed how power can be easily abused and manipulated. In more recent history, the institution of monarchy became a central vehicle for authoritarianism, corruption, and human rights abuses. It is for this reason that a Federal Council for Unity was established to essentially occupy the "head of state" role for Dankuk. This Council is closely attentive to protecting national interests and ensuring equal representation of all in Dankuk. Within that mission, the cultural and traditional importance of monarchy is acknowledged, hence the purpose of the cultural monarchies that are officially recognized by the Dranian Federation. There is no basis for empire in Dankuk and the pretenders to the throne reject an elevation of their status, endorsing the purpose of the Federal Council for Unity.

Federalist Shift in Leadership Amid New Fears

Reyes Yi, new leader of the Federalist Party

SEONGTAEK: There has been growing concern within the Federation surrounding the emergence of parties supporting imperialist doctrine and discourse reminiscent of the defeated dictatorship. These worries have divided the Federalist Party as members debate how to defend against the revival of these anti-democratic forces. Weeks of discussions within the party have not gone well for the Federalists and, despite having overseen a government of relative popularity, Premier Ryouichi Mangjuhl has been removed from his position as leader of the party, replaced by hardliner Minister of Foreign Affairs Reyes Yi. It is expected that the Federal Senate will be voting in the coming week to introduce a government led by Yi, replacing Mangjuhl. Yi is expected to pursue more aggressive attempts to safeguard the sanctity of the federal constitution and prevent who he calls "imperial fetishists" from imposing yet another cult of personality upon Dankuk.

New Government takes shape in Dankuk
Iglesia Mayor/Sinsudo, Ulbrach

Image
The People Demanded Change and Change they received!

After years of government in Dankuk being controlled by foreign-backed interests which had come to power violently, itself has been overthrown in a new nationalist revolution at the ballot box. After years of endemic Corruption within the government, in which a few powerful families and corporations monopolized control of government and produced propaganda to further solidify their power under a sham Democracy, a new force for political change formed- the Fists of Harmony and Justice formed with the goal of expelling the Foreign Dominationists, and restoring rights to the People of Dankuk. The movement continued to grow and was eventually joined by the socialist National People's Party of Dankuk who also have a goal of democratizing the nation. Together, these two parties undertook efforts to end the effective foreign Domination of Dankuk. With a platform of Sovereignty and expelling Foreign Corporate Dominators the election of 4485 was a resounding victory for the movement.

The New Parliament has endorsed a member of the NPPD as Prime Minister, Kimberly Lee, for her original ideas she can bring to Dankuk and help pave a new path forward for the nation. The new cabinet immediately ended all unequal treaties with Indrala, and has begun efforts to free up the legislative process. Seeing their power crumbling, the federalists disbanded. Prime Minister Lee immediately disbanded the "Federal Council of Unity" and replaced it with a Transitional Government and is writing the new Constitution herself with the goal of reinstating monarchical institutions within the country.
