Surprise Assault In Largest City Friedrichshafen Leads Socialist-Populist Alliance to Victory in South of Trimavske: Capital On The Horizon

The city of Friedrichshafen, largest in the country, has been assaulted by a surprise force of discontented rebels within the city aided by a sudden push by forces in the south. The move has put pressure on the Monarchists to defend the capital, which will be next to fall it seems. Meanwhile, they’ve focused mostly on the mountainside assault in Bebrazska, where little progress has still been made. The Populist forces are believed to be slowly thinning, however, and reinforcements in the east are too weak without defensive Tribal support to fend off the Monarchists.

All hope now lies in the alliance, and, for the Monarchists, in the international community. With the far-right HA taking power in Dorvik, it seems increasingly likely they will support the government according to some local sources. Otherwise, they shall ace the difficult dilemma of whether to defend the capital, or charge on Rozna and the allied forces, all while the WC ponders its involvement, with Istalia recently requesting Kata Horvat create a dossier to inform them on the affairs in full.

Populist-Socialist-Tribal Alliance Formed: Monarchists Stand Alone

Adofo Okafor, Roznan President, has signed an agreement, somewhat controversially, to re-enter Statrica — but only if the Allies won and defeat Perica.

The landmark deal comes after months of negotiations between Horvat and Okafor, with new Populist leader Aleksandar Novac seeming much more agreeable than his murdered predecessor, Gregurek, who wished to respect Roznan independence, which some worried would threaten the alliance. Will the Tribal forces join the fight, however, or merely use the alliance as a safety curtain? That is yet to be seen.

Friedrichshafen: A City Divided as Monarchists Fall

After a shocking turn of events that left Friedrichshafen, the largest city in the nation, at its knees, Socialist and Populist forces have been fighting what few remnants of the Monarchist government remains in the city.

The historically liberal city has mostly embraced the new Alliance regime, but more conservative areas still cling on to the Monarchist leadership. This has led to a great deal of division between former friends and family, as well as different districts of the city.

The Central District, once the marketplace city centre that fuelled the whole city’s economy and was vital in securing a good local economy for Statrica in the past, utilising the nearby ports which Statrica has always relied upon, has now become a war zone. Former stores and homes have become battlegrounds, and the hum of a living city has been replaced by deadly silence, penetrated only by explosions and the whiz of nearby bullets.

Here, Monarchists from across the city are making their last stand. They’ve called for support from the Government, but President Edvard Perica has said the focus must be on defending the capital, though it will do what it can.

It has called on the international community to support it once again, all while Kata Horvat prepares her dossier to the World Congress calling for the same thing. Meanwhile, the Capital has established powerful defences, ready for all possibilities. Forces have been withdrawn democracy the towns and countryside, which are now basically in the hands of the alliance. Only a thin slither of Trimavske province now remains secure, connecting the Monarchists with its other forces in the East, where little progress has still been found.

Bebrazska Mountainside Assault Leaves Monarchists Retreating as Rozna Forces Charge into Battle

While many had accused, with good reason, the Tribal Defence Forces of Rozna, led by Roznan President Adofo Okafor (though the government is yet to be internationally recognised), if acting defensively, they have recently shown their true power in an assault led by them and the Populist forces defending in northern Bebrazska.

Hidden in the mountains, these Populist troops have been staunchly defending their key strategical position against the Monarchists for months. Now, however, working with new allies in Rozna, the Monarchists have been pushed back to defend the provinces they still hold. Still, they are finding it difficult to defend in both the east and the south, and they seem to be facing a difficult dilemma as to what to focus on, making this assault particularly important.

The assault began at 1:00 AM yesterday morning and lasted for around two hours. Tribal forces unexpectedly attacked with bombs and firebombs, setting the Monarchist camp alight and shrouding it in chaos. Meanwhile, Populist troops took fire from the high ground. Caught between a deadly crossfire, stuck in a burning camp, they had no choice but to retreat. Rey we’re chased down by Alliance forces as they left, suffering high losses and being forced to leave behind much technology, information and arms, which will be undoubtedly very useful for the Alliance.

August 4331
Investigation into Gregurek Death Re-Opens

Populist leader Aleksandar Novac announced today that State Police in the Populist provinces are now investigating once again the death of former leader Oliver Gregurek, apparently assassinated by Monarchist forces. The exact reasons for the re-opening of the investigation are unclear, but expect there to be some shocking revelations in store.

November 4331
Monarchists Execute 100 Captured Socialist Soldiers in a Single Day

When Perica claimed that former enemy troops could be sentenced to death for treason, it was expected that only commanders and key figures would actually be exectured. Since then however, not one has received a Not Guilty verdict in any of the mass trials, and all but four have been sentenced to death.

Most of them were captured at the battle of Sturzela, an early success for the government forces. Now, however, they live out their days in the hideous POW camps, where human rights abuses are rampant, until the day of execution takes place without any warning.

The only legal newspaper in Monarchist Statrica, the Statrican Times, which is under direct government control, bragged that today 100 prisoners were executed at once, with no warning, in the middle of the night. They were executed by firing squad, with all of them lined up before being executed.

This is the latest in a series of human rights abuses committed by the Monarchist government, drawing concern in the international community.

It is believed that our former editor Jon Azikiwe was among those executed.

Perica Accepts New Englia Offer: Countries to Meet to Discuss Deal

After New Englia offered its support to Perica’s government his month, the Monarchist President has agreed to negotiate with the country for what support it can offer, which is not expected to be much. It is also understood that Perica is in early talks with the HA in Dorvik, according to some rumours. This international support could be the advantage Perica needs, but if Horvat succeeds in convincing the World Congress to aid her, then it seems certain that international support will either drop out or spiral into even greater conflict.

More as it happens.

Monarchist Statrica Has a New Constitution: All Hail King Edvard Perica

Since taking power as President at the start of the Civil War, Perica, the leader of the Monarchist Forces, has always maintained that the ultimate goal would be to introduce a new monarchy of Dorvish descent.

This year, an effort was undertaken to draft a new Statrican constitution, and today that effort has reached its conclusion.

“The great people of Statrica,” it begins, “hereby declare this document to be law, unbendable, unbreakable and supreme.” The document establishes a powerful monarch, who will be elected from willing family members and heirs upon the death or abdication of the current monarch. If nobody in the current family is willing, then the monarch will name three other noble families for public consideration.

The monarch is not only entitled to state protection and state property, but wields a considerable degree of power: they will be able to veto any legislation at their will and propose a bill for the National Assembly’s consideration at any point. They alone have the power to ratify international treaties, declare war and make peace, as well as having supreme command over the national military (now freed from the restraints of Populist devolution). They can declare a state of emergency and define police powers at any stage. They can access state funds for any of their activities without the need for democratic permission, and they alone have the right to open or close the Assembly. At their will, they alone can propose changes to the Consitition, though a Constitutional Board elected by the people must agree. They are also immune to prosecution in civil or common criminal lawsuits, and local media cannot openly criticise them. In addition, all opposition parties have been formally banned.

The originally proposed Monarch was rejected by the Asebly, after a large faction — which some say were organised by Perica himself — of the party supporting only Perica as the King. His immediate family would be eligible for election upon death.

The Constitution was accepted unanimously by the assembly. The originally proposed monarchs have been refused any further state protection by Perica, who was crowned immediately. As King he has already issued a number of new police regulations, including a ban on all social media within Statrica.

To celebrate his coronation, ten prisoners from the POW camps who held key positions in the Socialist Sturzela resistance were publically executed on national television, the Monarchist flag littered the streets and Statrican military officers marched through the main square of the capital.

King Perica has also recently negotiated additional aid from New Englia, promising to use the additional funds and equipment, shipped in to Trimavske’s massive northern port, to defend the capital. In addition, he thanked the New English government for supplying security advisors, many of whom are reportedly former memeners of Hulstria’s infamously brutal regime under Nimitz, perhaps indicating similar practices of torture, interrogation and oppression will be introduced here, too.

With all elections cancelled until his death, and his grip on Monarchist Statrica always growing, Perica now appears to be virtually a dictator in every sense of the word. With almost complete command, Perica himself is quickly becoming a brutal leader and despot.

Monarchists Begin Assault on Friedrichshafen

After receiving support from New Englia, King Perica has our renewed energy into his assault on the largest city of Friedrichshafen, recently taken by Populist-Socialist forces. A bloody battle now rages between the sides as each tries to gain control of the strategically important city, just south of the Capital. Reinforcements drawn in from the failing eastern campaign has helped the Monarchists, who are expected to retake the city and push into the peninsula by the end of the year.

January 4332
Populists Take Samedza

As more Monarchist troops go West to defend the capital, the Populist attack on the east — supported by the Tribal forces — have been given new life. Samedza, previously a Socialist province, fell easily to the Populists this month after Sturzela was taken by former Bebrazska forces. This will put additional pressure on nearby Monarchist provinces, now under threat from a multi-front attack.

Populist Files Stolen; Leaks Incoming?

It is believed, according to official reports, that too secret files from Populist investigations and planning have been stolen by either revolutionaries discontented with all factions or Monarchist supporters. Leaks are expected to be incoming I’m the coming week, with the hackers allegedly trying to blackmail Novac, Populist leader.

Today, he said: “I’m not worried. We’ll adapt.” Lara Horvat seemed less content, focusing on “the difficult physical battles which should not be eclipsed by hacks and intrigue.”

Old New Endrolian equipment found in populist forces

Stuzela - Military observers have found evidence that New Endralon is supporting the populist forces.

They found a big rise in military vehicles in the populist forces in the recent month. After some research they found that every night, at 04:20 am, a plane lands on a improvised airfield hidden in the mountains. This is probably how the equipment found its way in the populist armed forces.

Under the equipment are atleast 52 ATLV armored vehicles, between 22000 and 27500 CC4.38 assault rifles and an unknown number of LAR-22 battle rifles. Possibly the populists have also received 12 ST-71 tanks, but these could be captured of the monarchists.

Populists Push Into Monarchist Territory With New Arms

Pushing into Prutka, a Monarchist-controlled province, using New Endralan arms, the Populists are quickly gaining land in the east as Monarchists struggle to fight on two fronts.

With Samedza taken and Prutka almost under their belts, the Populists are quickly emerging as a much more major player than previously expected.

Leaks Show How Ley Monarchist Official Planned Perica Murder: Perica Throws Him Into Sea

A key Monarchist official was today executed via drowning after it emerged in Populists leaks that the Populists had worked with a number of dissatisfied Monarchist figures to plot the murder of King Perica.

Alongside the executed official, 15 other conspirators have been arrested awaiting trial, where they are expected to face death.

While this may seem insignificant, this clearly indicates that a growing number of people in Monarchist Statrica are willing to turn. Unfortunately for the Populists, this means that Perica will undoubtedly up his security, making any potential assassinations harder to organise. In addition, countless suspects are expected to be executed in the coming weeks, with the estimated number of potential suspects ranging from 30 to 200. Perica is also said to be considering dissolving the legislature and calling an election.

September 4332
Monarchists Push South

Sending a small force by boat into Meigafia behind enemy lines, Monarchist forces, who recently reclaimed the nation’s largest city of Friedrichshafen, have managed to break the front between Socialist and Monarchist forces and gain the advantage in the South. With the Alliance now on the back foot here, it may not be long before the war becomes a simple east-west divide, changing the conditions of battle massively: no longer will opposing troops face each other on multiple fronts. This war will become a battle of tactics and espionage. International support will be worth more than ever as troops quickly become evenly matched, and the war enters a whole new phase.

If the southern Socialist stronghold falls, Stropkysa will be the only Socialist province. Is this a chance for the Populists to rise? Or perhaps for Rozna to take control? Or will the Alliance use this opportunity to quickly crush the Monarchists in one quick swoop?

OOC: Apologies for the lack of updates recently, been busy. I intend to get the news up to the modern IG date with a few longer (possibly covering a year at a time or so) posts this weekend, get things moving on to a bit of a different stage.

There have been some international developments in the World Congress General Assembly, however, that may be worth looking at if you’re interested!

Socialists to Allow Joint Control with Rozna

Moarava, a Socialist-controlled Province in the south-east, has always had a large Asli community. The tribal peoples have often felt discriminated against, especially under former Monarchist governments. Now, thousands of Tribal peoples have emigrated into bordering Rozna, which currently functions as an independent state and is governed by the Tribal Defence Forces.

With the local economy suffering badly, but with Horvat, Socialist leader, unwilling to block emigration, Horvat and Okafor, Roznan President, have come to a bespoke agreement. Morava and Rozna will be able to share certain laws and the Socialists will adopt thorough anti-discrimination laws all throughout their lands. In addition, residents in Morava will have the same employment rights and status as those in Rozna, and vice-versa. It is expected that the move to share control over Rozna will discourage emigration, even though Socialists have always generally been supportive of tribal rights.

The Meigafian Assault Quickly Destroys Alliance Forces

Image
Map of Statrica showing Monarchists in blue, Populists in orange, Socialists in red and Tribal Defence Forces in green (OOC: thanks GeneralM!)

With the Monarchist forces quickly pressing into Socialist Meigafia, it is now reported that almost half of the Province has fallen to the Monarchists, with many Socialist forces retreating to neighbouring Galevo, where there is also a significant amount of Populist forces stationed to help with defence. Running low on ammunition, cut off from trade and supplies, it is expected that the whole southern peninsula will soon fall to the Monarchists, which could be potentially devastating for the eastern Alliance forces currently gaining land on the Monarchist border with help from New Endralan supplies.

Meanwhile, battles have become increasingly slow as the different sides reach a stalemate. Progress is expected to be increasingly slow until some unseen breakthrough changes the situation in future.

December 4334
3 New Endralan Tanks Captured by Monarchists

3 ST-71 tanks shipped over by New Endralan planes have been captured by the Monarchists, the latest in a small series of stolen equipment. It is expected that Perica will stay silent on the supplies offered so that his forces can lay claim to free equipment captured from the Populists, but will he let them grow too powerful or seize it from them?

February 4335
Statrican Hosianism: Perica's New Tool for Controlling the Masses

Statrican Hosianism, referred to as simply Hosianism in Monarchist Statrica, was today advocated by Edvard Perica, even though he is believed to be an atheist. The movement values traditional conservative values and authority: almost all references to liberal ideas have been altered or removed in the holy text. Analysts have claimed that Perica himself orchestrated the birth of the movement, which is intended to turn the populace towards his own far-right ideals and begin the transformation of Statrica into a heavily socially conservative state.

October 4335
Perica Dissolves Assembly, Arrests Suspected Rebels in Politics

After the Religious Purity Bill just barely passed through the Assembly this month, banning all religions except Statrican Hosianism, King Perica encountered his first major obstacle on the path to total domination within his own lands. This public symbol of rebellion was rather embarrassing for Perica, even though he succeeded.

As a result, 10 of the most prominent rebels were arrested on charges of treason on Tuesday, just an hour after Perica dissolved the Assembly and called fresh elections, expected to be rigged to remove any suspected rebels. The charges claim that the politicians were double-agents working with the Populists, with little believable evidence. Still, not a single trial has so far fallen on the side of the defendant against the government, with many claiming the system is rigged and staged.

The suspects are currently undergoing "interviews", which roughly translates to violent, deadly torture in search of names and confessions. All of them face death.

January 4336
Edvard Perica to Lourenne: Stop Allowing New Endralan Planes Supporting Populists Through Your Airspace

King Perica of Monarchist Statrica has today announced his attentions to "take decisive action" against Lourenne if the bordering nation does not agree to stop New Endralan planes from dropping supplies in Populist territory. Perica said it was "nigh on a declaration of war" and called for "the international community to take a step back and leave Statrica to its own affairs," resembling his recent comments in the General Assembly.

How will Lourenne respond? Will they agree to close down the operation, or will they become even more aggressive? Will Perica follow through with his threat? Will the Civil War spiral into a larger conflict, or will it fizzle out into a what-if?

OOC: Quick change made: Morava has always been socialist, despite initially being listed as Populist. My bad. Doesn't change anything, really.
