MODERNIZATION PROGRAM UNDERWAY FOR MARINE ROYALE KANJORIENNE
First step in larger modernization plans

LA COURONNE, MARCH 9, 4532

By order of the ministry of defense, Kanjor has officially embarked upon what is being dubbed "Plan Lazarus"; the first step in the modernization of Kanjor's armed forces. The name was chosen due to its implications, as Kanjor's armed forces, specifically its navy, consists of only a few, obsolete vessels. The plan is to resurrect it from the dead, as it were.

Due to Kanjor's position on the southern tip of the continent, with La Tondelle and its channel seperating it from the mainland to guard, the ministry of defense has given priority to the modernizing of the navy first, followed by the airforce and finally the land component.

Specific steps of "Plan Lazarus" are as follows:
1. Begin expanding existing state-owned drydocks and shipyards,
2. Begin expanding existing naval bases, as well as construct new naval bases along the shoreline and on the island of La Tondelle,
3. Begin constructing new surface vessels and submarines, as well as contracting with private companies to aid in the effort.

As Kanjor remains a modest power in both economy and military, the ministry of defense has specifically stated that aircraft carriers will not be part of this modernization program. Sadly they remain out of reach for our armed forces due to technological and financial limitations, though hopes exist this will one day change.

KANJORI SCIENTSTS SPLIT ATOM, GENERATE POSITIVE POWER BALANCE
First step towards commercial nuclear power

TOUSSAINT, JANUARY 11, 4533


Scientists from the Université Royale de Toussaint have achieved a breakthrough many years in the making. Without foreign assistance or technical expertise, they have managed to enrich several grams of uranium-235 and build a miniature nuclear power plant around it. For the first time in Kanjor's history, this experiment generated more power than was put in, thereby creating a positive balance and proving that Kanjor can, in due time, begin implementing commercial nuclear power if so desired.

Discoveries of this scale were rare in Kanjor's universities in years past, but serious investments made by the Parti Socialiste Kanjorienne in R&D and education have once again given scientists the means to experiment, and to try and better all our lives.

Generally speaking nations make these breakthroughs with the help of stronger, more powerful allies. Kanjor's succesful fission reactor design proves to all the ingenuity of our scientists.

SMALL BUSINESSES HIT RECORD NUMBERS
Kanjori economy continues impressive growth

LA COURONNE, JUNE 17, 4533


Every six months the Planning Bureau (subdivision of the ministry of the interior) publishes statistics related to all aspects of Kanjori society, from population growth to lightning strikes. One statistic of note that came out with the most recent set of statistics shows that private business ownership in Kanjor, which has been on the rise since the economic overhaul started by the Parti Socialiste Kanjorienne five years ago, has hit a record high.

The Planning Bureau classifies a business as a "small business" when it employes fewer than 500, and is not active in the stock exchange. Generally these business include small stores, small construction firms, legal firms, notary firms, and many other services Kanjori citizens use and need on a daily basis.

This statistic is another welcome development for the PSK, who continues to run unopposed in Kanjori elections.

"This is proof to all the naysayers that our economic policies are working. Social democracy and a healthy, mixed economy are the way forward to sustained economic growth that benefits all the people, not just those at the top." stated prime minister Dorian.

RENDEZ-VOUS EN KANJOR
Government to promote tourism, new slogan unveiled

VAL ROYEAUX, JULY 3, 4533


The government has drafted legislation to officially begin promoting foreign and domestic tourism in Kanjor and officially unveiled Kanjor's new slogan "Rendez-vous en Kanjor".

Image
Oleri is domestically renowned for its warm climate and sandy beaches. Already many Kanjoriens spend several days to weeks on these beaches in the summer months and now it is time the international community got to know this pristine beauty as well.

Image
Les Montagnes Grands (the Grand Mountains) offer some of the best ski slopes on the continent. A uniquely pastoral culture has developed here over the centuries, known for its hospitality (and liberal use of cheeses) that welcomes visitors with open arms.

Image
The untamed wilderness of La Tondelle is a paradise for those who wish to escape busy city life and take things to a more basic level. La Tondelle hosts a plethora of unique fauna and flora not seen anywhere else on the continent due to its isolated location.

NKSM ROYAUME DE KANJOR LAUNCHED
New flagship will undergo extensive sea trials before being commissioned

VOUBAIX NAVAL BASE, DECEMBER 27, 4533


Almost two years after it was laid down as part of Plan Lazarus, the NKSM Royaume de Kanjor was christened and launched Her Majesty Queen Éléonore in an elaborate ceremony. The vessel has come to symbolize not only the resurgence of the Kanjori economy and military, but the monarchy as a whole.

Her Majesty had the following stirring words prepared for the solemn occasion:
"Today marks the rebirth of our navy. Today we show the world that Kanjor stands ready to defend its borders, its neutrality, and its sovereignty in the face of ever-increasing threats. Let this vessel, this proud representative of our kingdom, show the world that Kanjor is ready to protect the seas once more."

The vessel is the most advanced ship built in Kanjor to date. While not as grand as an aircraft carrier, it carries a compliment of guided missiles, as well as significant anti-air defense modules. The size, gross tonnage and displacement of this ship resembles that of the obsolete battleships of ages past.

A truly wonderous achievement by Kanjori engineers, scientists and technicians.

FORTIFICATION EFFORTS CONTINUE AT NORTHERN BORDER
Forts blend in with environment, mountains to become "impassable"

LA COURONNE, FEBRUARY 2, 4534


The program to build fortifications in the mountains to the north, on the border with Alduria and Rildanor, continues at a steady pace according to the ministry of defense. A short statement released by the minister of defense, as well as a few accompanying pictures, aim to paint a picture that soon Kanjor's borders will be well-equipped, armed and manned to stand ready to defend the nation's neutrality.

Minister of Defense, Perle Pierrick Hardy, Comtesse de Perenne wrote:As you can see in these pictures, we have adopted the strategy of hiding our forts, guns, tank traps and the like in plain sight. Aerial recon will be next to useless in trying to identify the advanced fortifications we are constructing to guard our frontier. These forts will be permanently manned by the Royal Army and will serve as a warning to everyone that Kanjor's borders are not to be violated. This, coupled with the recent massive investments in our armed forces will allow us to exercise effective control over the entire border.

KANJOR AND LOURENNE SIGN HISTORIC TREATY
Dynastic issues to be settled

LA COURONNE, JUNE 2, 4534


As we speak, Premier Ministre Dorian of Kanjor and Haute Chancelier Oktal of Lourenne are signing a historic deal months in the making.

Turn the clock back a few years, when Her Majesty Queen Éléonore I de la Maison Deux-Rivières took the throne of the re-established Kingdom of Kanjor, bypassing several "legitimist" pretenders, amongst which the monarch of Lourenne, His Majesty King Phillippe I de la Maison d'Orléans-Vasser-DeChambeau. This left relations between the two Canrillaise monarchies at a historic low, and official recognition of the new Kanjori government was denied by the Lourennaise government.

Now, thanks to months of backchannel discussions, an agreement has finally been reached where Her Majesty Queen Éléonore will marry the brother of His Majesty King Philippe I, Prince Auguste d'Orléans-Vasser-DeChambeau. Any descendants from this marriage will bear the name "Orléans-Vasser-Deux-Rivières" thereby settling any dynastic issues relating to the Kanjori throne, and opening the path for warm relations between the two nations. This agreement has the full backing of the Kanjori Crown, as Her Majesty was rumored to say "Well, he is quite handsome isn't he?" about the good prince.

The treaty now passes to the legislative branches of both kingdoms for ratification, upon which will begin the planning of a grand royal wedding not seen in the world for many years.
(Note: The House of Orléans-Vasser is considered by international royalist organizations to be the rightful royal house of all Canrille - Lourenne, Kanjor, Rildanor and Alduria)

CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN ON FIRST NUCLEAR POWER PLANT
Small test reactor planned

RETRAITE-DU-ROI, JUNE 19, 4534


After the breakthrough achieved by nuclear phycisists and technicians last year construction is finally to begin on the nation's first test reactor. Foundations are being laid approximately 40km from Retraite-du-Roi in order to avoid any danger for the local population should anything go awry, though the Société Nationale de l'Énergie Kanjorienne (Kanjor's state-owned energy company) assured the Gazette Royale that all necessary safety precautions are being made.

This reactor, planned to generate roughly 150MW is a relatively small one compared to some of the 1000-1500MW reactors more advanced nations possess, but it is a necessary step in the development of bigger, more sophisticated plants. Construction is scheduled to take 5-6 years, and is being done in close cooperation with the physicists and technicians who made the aforementioned breakthrough from the Université Royale de Toussaint.
