On January 14th 4376 5 private Rutanian banks came together to form the Rutanian Coastal Banking Association. The organization was described to reporters as a lobbying and Public Relations institution created by 5 private banking institutions in Rutania; the Bank of Northern Rutania, Morris Mountain Bank, Finkley Coastal Banking Corp., Rutanian Metropolitan Commercial Bank, and the Albert Banking Corporation. A spokesman for the organization said organization was created to promote the interest of the business and banking community within the nation and abroad to defend and promote the success of Rutania's finance sector. Sources close to the organization's operation say that they are currently working to develop a strategy to push trade deals that would benefit the Rutanian finance sector in the upcoming Northern Council Conference to be held in Rutania in October. The spokesman for the RCBA stated that the organization intends to make significant donations to members of the governing coalition in a push to get a second term for an administration that delivered some of the largest tax cuts in decades.

--July 4376--

Foreign Ministry prepares for Northern Council Conference of October 4376

Conference room in Rutanian Foreign Ministry Building


The Rutanian elections are underway and the capitol of Vanderburg is busy as usual with political activity; this year however the capitol is especially busy with the Foreign Ministry preparing for the upcoming Northern Council Conference set to be held in October. The Foreign Ministry in conjunction with the government of Lourenne pushed internationally for the conference. The nations of Lourenne, Luthori, Hutori, Kazulia, and Dorvik along with the hosting nation of Rutania are set to be in attendance. The purpose of the conference has been stated as developing a security protocol to serve Northern Council nations and to deter aggressors from taking action against a Northern Council member. The Kazulian-Dankuk crisis of a couple of years back and what many called a slow or lack of response from the Northern Council is the foundation for discussions that will take place at the conference.

The Foreign Ministry has not been very forthcoming with what if any agreement they will be pushing for at the conference, this is reportedly due to the ministry attempting not to politicize the conference with Rutania's election underway although the nations legislature supported hosting the conference with a 3/4ths majority.

Carson Threadgood, former Prime Minister, Chairman of the Whig Party, leaving Vanderburg after his final speech as Prime Minister

Departing Prime Minister Makes Farewell speech in Vanderburg

Carson Threadgood who served as Prime Minister from 4370-4376 will continue on in his role as Chairman of the Whig Party and his office stated that he will continue this job from the Whig Party headquarters in the state of Ardinia. The Prime Minister who led both the Free-Thinking Coalition and the Moderate-Right coalition has been replaced following his parties major losses in the 4376 election. The Whig Party reached an agreement with the Progressive Party however to form a coalition based on their shared economic philosophy. Threadgood made one final speech to the nation in his capacity as Prime Minister, below is an excerpt:

It has been the greatest honor of my life to serve as Prime Minister of the Commonwealth and I can look back on my 6 years in office with pride knowing we made great strides and achieved what seemed impossible just a few decades ago. When I took office the nation had a ballooning national debt and spending was out of control, we took that spending of 90 billion rutas and cut it by 10 billion and gave Rutanians one of the largest tax cuts they have seen in years. I am disappointed that I wasn't able to do more to open up our markets allow room for the free market and less socialism but I think the nation is on the right track. I have spoken to the leaders of the Progressive Party and I believe this term the nation has the greatest chance its seen in years of breaking the chains of the corrupt union bosses and shaking off the communist policies for good.

Charles Finkley, CEO of Finkley Coastal Banking Corp and spokesman for the Rutanian Coastal Banking Association (RCBA)

RCBA holds business forum in Vanderburg and lavishes praises on the administration for opening up the economy

The Rutanian Coastal Banking Association held a business forum on June 12th 4377 in the nations capital of Vanderburg inviting corporations and businesses from near and far to attend, mingle and formulate ways to improve business collectively. The forum came shortly after the People's Assembly approved a number of economic bills that RCBA spokesman Charles Finkley called 'the greatest thing for the Rutanian business community in decades'. The RCBA made some big announcements at the forum most notably the merger of its 5 banks into two banks. The Finkley Coastal Banking Corp. has absorbed the Bank of Northern Rutania and the Morris Mountain Bank; the Rutanian Metropolitan Commercial Bank has merged with the Albert Banking Corporation to become the Albert Metropolitan Commercial Bank. With these mergers both the Finkley Coastal Banking Corp. and the Albert Metropolitan Commercial Bank have become considerably larger, more wealthy, and thus more influential. Sources have reported that the purpose of this conference was to seek mergers and for the two banks to identify companies that would be open to becoming incorporated following legislation that has de-regulated the nations stock markets. More news is expected as Charles Finkley has announced that the RCBA would be making a major announcement near the end of the month.

Profitt orders immediate removal of the DSPR's Paramilitary

In an address to the DSPR, Mark Emmings upon orders by John Profitt ordered the immediate removal of their paramilitary.

"FORWARD TO: JAMES WILSON OF THE DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST PARTY* OF RUTANIA

OFFICE OF MARK EMMINGS, MINISTER OF JUSTICE, ON ORDERS OF JOHN PROFITT

SUBJECT: GOVERNMENT WARNING OF PARAMILITARY REMOVAL

---

This is a warning from the Government that resulting from the passage of the Unauthorized Militia Act, all paramilitaries "are illegal and the recognized government may intervene freely to stop any possible activity."

Therefore, you are ordered to immediately remove all 15,000 paramilitary personnel of the Red Front from your party. As these are volunteers, no aid will be directed. Failure to do so within the next 48 hours (1 year ingame) will result in immediate action by the Defense Department.

With regards,

Mark Emmings"

Further updates will be released on the status of this effort.

'Prime Minister O'Keefe gives a statement on DSPR's Paramilitary issue'

Image
Noah O'Keefe, Prime minister of Rutania

After the Realist Coalition passed a bill prohibiting all paramilitary activity in Rutania, President Profitt has ordered the DSPR to remove their paramilitary wing. Ministers are currently in Vanderburg waiting nervously for a response from the DSPR. Prime Minister Noah O'Keefe gave a public statement today in behalf of the cabinet:

We in the government have been working hard to resolve this issue. Despite our passage of the "Unauthorized Militia Act", the DPSR has kept it's volunteer paramilitary force of 15,000 soldiers. The DSPR has now two options. They could either decide to become actual advocates for democracy and shut down their paramilitary wing or they could decide to act illegally as a underground terrorist organization. Our message to them has been very clear. Get rid of your paramilitary wing or this will result in an immediate intervention by the Defense Department.

Finance Minister George Kensington of the RRP has made a budget proposal that would increase spending of health and social services, education and science. Currently Rutania has a budget surplus of 13 Billions rutas, the new budget would lower the surplus to about 6,5 Billion, while the spending would raise about 6,6 Billion. Minister Kensington himself stated that this new budget would "benefit the poorest of Rutanians, while also improving the science research in Rutania". He also said that "if we have so much extra, why not just put some of it to good use".

Red Front Disaffiliates from the DSPR, Re-organises as "Outdoor Pursuits" Club

Image

DSPR paramilitary wing Red Front today announced its decision to disaffiliate from the party and reorganise itself into an "outdoor pursuits" club, following government demands that the organisation, which has around 15,000 volunteers, be disbanded. Spokesman Ray Johnson stated that "in order to comply with the law on paramilitaries, the Red Front is disaffiliating from the DSPR and will cease to be a militia. Given our assets and membership, we have decided to re-launch as a recreational club focused on outdoor pursuits and adult learning". The Red Front's new website offers a number of activities, including survival skills training, a gun club, target practice, orienteering, engineering and mechanics training, urban exploration, military re-enactments, hunting weekends, paintballing, and 4x4 off-roading. More unusually, the site refers to a "book club" and "political education" sessions. It is understood that membership will be made open to all adults, although with the organisation retaining of its current membership and branding, it is likely to appeal mainly to those of a pro-DSPR persuasion.

'Rural Party elects new leader'

Image
Nathan Pope, new chairman of the Rutanian Rural Party

Iconic Rural chairman Noah O'Keefe, also known as "The Hick" has announced that he will be leaving his position as the chairman of the RRP. The veteran politician also revealed that he would be running as the Rural candidate in the Rutanian presidential election in 4395. O'Keefe is the longest serving chairman of RRP and 4394 will mark his 30th year, since he became the chairman in 4364. Before that he had worked as the Rutanian minister of Trade and Industry and later on he went on to become the Prime minister.

This September the party congress of RRP was held at their HQ in Feynport. O'Keefe had already told about his departure to the party leadership, who had to delay the party congress by a week. A vote was organized to elect the new chairman for the party. The final two candidates were George Kensington - former minister of Finance and a social liberal, who got his support from the progressive side of the party - and Nathan Pope, the 42-year old conservative factory owner, whose support came mainly from the center-right members of the RRP. The election was won by Nathan Pope, with 56% of the party's support.

Image
Pope won Kensington by 12%

Pope's election was not at all uncontroversial, with many people planning to leave the party. Kensington commented his defeat by saying: "The results are unnerving, but I'm not at all surprised. With DSPR in power again, there has been a sudden rise of conservatives in the party. But I warn you, this is certainly going wrong way from the values that Rothchester founded this party on." There have been no official statements by departing chairman O'Keefe.

We asked chairman Pope to list a 6 things that he is for and against. After few minutes of pondering he gave us a list:

For:
- farmers
- fatherland
- life
- free market
- social security
- anti-trust laws

Against:
- urban-oriented policy
- globalization
- budget cuts on education, pensions and healthcare
- communism
- paramilitaries
- gun control
