Prawanwit Phrompan, a rising star in the reunification talks

KHATTAYA, Hanzen: It is crazy to think that there are now multiple generations of children who haven't lived in a unified Hanzen, as the nation has been made of a number of princedoms since the dissolution of the Hanzen-Xsampa Empire 39 years ago; however it is quite possible that things will be changing for the better in the coming months.

A year ago, an exploratory council was put together to discuss the reestablishment of a unified Hanzenese state. The group, which has been meeting in the port city of Khattaya, is made up of representatives from across the princedoms and republics, and have recently announced that a consensus has finally been reached.

The new government will be a federal, parliamentary republic headed by a constitutional monarchy that holds limited power. Due to lobbying from many local governments, a federal system will be put in place, allowing for local leaders to keep some power; although, this may limit the parliament's ability to push for the deep reforms many predict they have planned.

One star rose up above the rest of the representatives: Prawanwit Phrompan, a business owner from Eastern Hanzen who many speculate may be able to cinch the Chief Ministry in future elections.

Elections are slated to occur in two months time, allowing for a small amount of local campaigning. A committee has also been established to find any surviving members of the royal family, or those with blood relations, who will be coronated as the new monarchs of Hanzen.

Hanzenese citizens take to the streets of Udon Nakhon to celebrate the coronation

UDON NAKHON, Hanzen: After less than a month of searching, the Royal Committee was able to locate a number of distant blood relatives to the deposed Wechsupaporn Royal Dynasty. However, they eventually settled on Parchand Udomprecha, whose family fled into the mountains living as simple farmers.

Today, King Parnchand was coronated early in the morning, so that the rising sun could receive the three bows he gave during the ceremony. This is the first time that the Hanzenese monarchy will return to the Phra in quite a long time and marks a hopeful return to normality for the people and country.

While the ceremony, itself, was private and only attended by the royal family, high ranking officials, and few Daenist and Jienist priests, the new king was quick to make a public appearance, walking outside of the palace to greet his new subjects. The news has been met by great fanfare from a majority of the populace, and the streets of Udon Nakhon were flooded with celebration throughout the day.

"Thank you all for accepting me as your new monarch," said King Parnchand in a public speech, "I can't wait to work together with you to return the great nation of Hanzen to glory."

The royal family also includes three children, two of which were recently born. This already puts the monarchy on a stable path for the future.

Prawanwit Phrompan thanks his supporters for the Chief Ministry

UDON NAKHON, Hanzen: Yesterday saw the citizens of the Kingdom of Hanzen vote for the first time since the country's reunification, an event that brought about a huge voter turnout for the nation with over 75% of the electorate turning up at the polls.

This election seems to have set the tone for the nation's political future, with two main parties seeming to come out on top: the Royal Peoples Party and the Elephant Workers' Party which both gained over 100 seats (154 and 103, respectively). Rounding out the 356 seat parliament are the Daenist League with 65 seats, the National Unity Alliance with 21, and the Orchid Society with 13.

As expected, the Royal Peoples Party's Prawanwit Phrompan, who rose the prominence through his role in the reunification council, will be leading the country until the election cycle as Chief Minister of Hanzen through a coalition with the ideologically aligned Daenist League.

Minister of Foreign Affairs issues apology to Kimlien

Minister of Foreign Affairs Apinya Changtai speaks to a gathered crowd

UDON NAKHON, Hanzen: Freshly back in Udon Nakhon from celebrating the New Year with her family, Apinya Changtai, the RPP Minister of Foreign Affairs, met with members of Dinh community in the capital city.

At first the conversation was light-hearted with Changtai cracking a few jokes and asking about everyone's holidays; however, it quickly darkened as the subject moved on to the State of Kimlien.

"I, on behalf of the Kingdom of Hanzen, would like to issue my sincerest apologies to the State of Kimlien," said Ms. Changtai, "we as a nation must come to reality with the horrors we wrought as part of the Xsampa-Hanzen Empire and there's no better time than now to work for a better future."

The minister spoke about her party's hope to once again restore good relations with Hanzen's southern neighbour. "I hope that our two nations can once again find common ground and learn to bring peace and prosperity to our tired continent," she said, to cheers from the those who had come to listen to her speak.

This is seen by many as a concrete move by the current government to reject the militaristic past that Hanzen saw under the leadership of Prime Minister Babpiboon, who led the nation into the creation of the Xsampa-Hanzen Empire. The statement drew approval from all sides of the aisle, except the National Unity Party.

King Parnchand pushes for closer ties with Indrala
Hanzen's monarch shows his true governmental influence for the first time

The Grand Palace of Hanzen, residence of the Royal Family

UDON NAKHON, Hanzen: In one of his first public statements directed at the legislature, King Parnchand has requested that the nation look towards places such as Indrala.

"I'd like to humbly ask the National Assembly to further relations with the State of Indrala," he said, "as it is clear we as nations share similar cultures, histories, languages, and even people. Thus, we're obvious partners."

The king has long been known to have supported the idea of bringing Hanzen closer to the nation it was formerly a protectorate under, even though many areas of the East are heavily against such viewpoints. However, it is generally believed with Indrala's top role in Terra's economy and growing military strength that Hanzen will be able to grow greatly with its friendship and aid. Along with this, king Parnchand, himself, has ties to the Indralan Emperor, placing personal ties into this issue.

Hanzen's legislature seems to generally support the measure despite hesitations, and the two largest parties the Royal Peoples and Elephant Workers' Parties have announced intentions to work towards the goal. Although it isn't known how other parties stand, these two control over half the legislature.

If the issue passes, it might be an indication the king will have much more influence of legislation and policy than many thought he would.

Tiankong to invest in Udon Nakhon, other large cities

Rendering of the planned headquarters

UDON NAKHON, Hanzen: The Tiankong Group is a largely Indralan based company that is known not only in the airplane and flight industry but also for its green energy and development initiatives.

Recently, the company's Ren Guanting announced that she wanted to be able to move the company onto the international stage, starting in Hanzen before working its way through Dovani. However, Ren must first get through the hoops of the National Assembly in order to gain permission for such sweeping and expensive plans.

The development will largely focus on the modernization of urban areas, including the introduction of cleaner energy, better transportation systems, and updates to many dilapidated public structures.

If allowed the project is estimated to bring in millions, if not billions of economic aid and opportunity to the nation, a move that move that many hope will increase the power of the already prominent tourist industry. Furthermore, if this headquarters actually ends up in Hanzen thousands of new jobs and possible expansions to what Tiankong had already done to the country are expected to well up in the capital..
