BoD finalizes census tallies, Stunning collapse of population
The Census Agency 's report on the population of Dalibor has been released to the public after finalization by the Board of Directors. Their findings include:

Total Population: 17,234,211

    Adult Population(18+): 14,852,921(86.2%)
    • Male: 7,967,107(53.64%)
    • Female: 6,885,814(46.36%)
    Minor Population: 2,381,290(13.8%)
    • Male: 1,196,122(50.23%)
        Working Age(15+): 388740(32.5%)
    • Female: 1,185,168(49.77%)
        Working Age(15+): 371195(31.32%)

This is a substantial decrease from the last census, conducted before the Wolfsheim plague. Among the changes is the stunning drop in population, with Dalibor losing close to 4 Million people, nearly one fifth of the population. TCA attributes this decline to the civil war which caused nearly a million casualties alone, migration due to both the war and the plague, and Wholfsheim.

EU drops severance bill, refuses to take up budget
May, 4314

The Employees' Union has passed a removal proceeding on the Workers' Union's "Bill of Severance from the Corporate Elite," officially ending the months long standoff between the Board of Directors and the EU. This turnaround comes on the heels of the Pantheon Foundation's Board of Directors issuing a statement against the WU. However, even though the BoD can claim victory for ending the severance, the EU has- on a party-line vote- refused to even floor the budget, keeping it from reaching a committee. Speaker Joo Li(WU) said, after the vote to floor the budget failed, that the EU will create its own budget in place:
The fat-cats in the Cushy Board of Directors can build their own budget that squeezes the life out of the poor and weak, but they cannot and will not get it through us. We will protect the forgotten, we will protect the everyman.

Worker's Union Distances from CLT, party-votes to break most ties
The Worker's Union of Dalibor has officially dissolved most ties to the Communist League of Terra after a inter-party vote. The WU faced backlash after several prominent Daliborian figures spoke against the League, and several large protests were held against the CLT. The anger rose from a letter sent to the CLT Chair, produced by the Hyperion Corporation, which brought to the forefront the CLT's inaction during Dalibor's darkest days, and in some cases even aggravating the tensions.

DALIBOR PROTECTION AGENCY DECLARES MUTINY, MARCHES ON CAPITAL DEMANDING BUDGET
BREAKING NEWS:
The Dalibor Protection Agency has declared that it is marching on the Employees' Union in Dalibor City to force the body to fund the government, something that has not happened in the three years since their election. The DPA has taken control of the streets leading into and out of the city, as well as all roads leading to Dalibor Corporate Headquarters. The CEO of the DPA has said that they will not leave until the EU agrees to process the Board of Directors' budget, which passed several months ago.

EU passes BoD budget, 15 vote against
The Employee's Union of Dalibor has passed the budget the Board of Directors passed earlier this year. Fifteen members of the Worker's Union voted against it, citing "capitalist scum made this failure of a budget." The fifteen members include some of the most hardcore communist supporters in the WU, including several former members of the PLU.

15 dissenting reps break from Wu, form "Dalibor People's Party"
the Worker's Union is in shambles following a forced vote on an unfavorable budget, as fifteen communist members of the Union renounced their seats and formed their own political bloc, the "Dalibor People's Party." The name defies legal naming conventions, and if they are to remain, several court aides said, they will have to replace "Party" with "Union," a small change which will, undoubtedly, they will refuse to do.

(OOC note: this is a article for the year 4330, reflecting on the past Hyperion intervention. I'm among it now so I don't forget or get Bored and don't do it XD)

Decade in review: 4320s, the return of normalcy
January 2, 4330
Qianru Maxwell, Chief Dalibor correspondent

It has been twenty-six years since my family fled Dalibor, ironically to escape the corporation that employs me today. My father was a powerful figure in the Dalibor Worker's Party, an ardent socialist, and he feared what would happen to us if the Hyperion Corporation took over. I was fifteen when we left, shortly after the new Charter had passed in 4304. Back then I swore Dalibor would be a wreck like it was when when we left for all eternity, and I'm sure most people would've agreed with me. However, the last decade, along with the last twenty-six years, has been something special, something Dalibor hasn't seen in a long time. I have gathered some stories from around the nation, and around Terra, which I think can explain what I'm talking about.

Zou Xinyi, Shangui Subsidiary
"I remember back during the plague, half the village was emptied thanks to it, and I'm sure if it got any worse those damned punks, the PLF, would've come and emptied the other half." Zou Xinyi sat behind the counter of the small cooking shop his family had owned for generations. A man of 88, he had seen many things: thieves, bandits, and sickness, but nothing as bad as the Wolfshiem virus. "It's like they had a rash all over their body, evertyhing exposed was red and covered in sores, it was something I never wish to see again." His wife was one of the victims of the plague, dying near before the quarantine was in place. I asked him if he remembered the quarantine, and he nodded.

"Oh yes, I remember it. You couldn't get ahold of anything to save your life. Food was dropped in from aeroplanes, and we were lucky to get any if the PLF managed to get to it first."

He pulled out a helmet from under the counter and showed where a bullet had pierced clean through both sides. "PLF helmet," he explained. "They came in one day and went door to door, demanding all the food in your house. Some of them found some alcohol and stayed behind after the main group had left, completely drunk. They came into my shop and started destroying it, and I told them, "Leave or else." They just laughed at me, and I went behind the counter here and grabbed the pistol my father gave me before he died." He reached and grabbed a battered, Pre-Pantheon Kruger Mk. 6 pistol. "I pointed right at the back of one of them's head as they were leaving, and shot him dead. the others got so startled that they ran off in their truck without even shooting back."

Things couldn't be any farther from that today. the village of Huzou has grown rapidly in the last thirty years, from being a small village in Shangui to a town of over 45,000, all thanks to, many say, the Hyperion Corporation. Zou Xinyi says business is booming.

Unions gear up for December elections
Members of the ruling Dalibor Free Work Union have unveiled their platform for the December 5 election, along with their yearly union agenda. Several of the items on both documents are holdovers from their past platforms, such as a reduction on the cap for subsidiary sales tax and imposing a tax on nonpolitical union membership. Most other unions have also released their platforms for the elections, including the Dalibor Peopls's Party, who's eligibility is still up in the air after the release of their platform in December of last year caused a ruckus among the Board of Directors, as the platform called for "the abolishment of the board of Directors and the removal of the Hyperion Corporation from Dalibor."

December elections give FWU big majority, DPP boycott costs seats
January 3, 4331
The Free Work Union has officially been proclaimed the winner of the December elections after the Dalibor People'es Party court battle for a revote was shut down by the Dalibor Supreme Court this morning. The FWU, which won 86 seat super majority, issued a statement thanking the court for ending the uncertainty over the results. The FWU will be joined in the EU by the Worker's Union with 20 seats, and the Hyperion Corporate Authority which holds 14. The Dalibor People's Part will not be seated due to their boycott, which the Supreme Court ruled invalidated all votes to the Party and all seats won. Human rights observers and Democratic activists have decried the decision as corrupted.

Mayoral race in Dalibor City swings into full gear!
Three candidates vie for mayorship of Dalibor City
March 20th, 4390 OOC: POSTDATED
Image

Dalibor City, Dalibor: Democratic fervor has rippled across Dalibor as the capital city and economic engine of the country is preparing to elect a new mayor! This election comes one month after the unfortunate kidnapping and decapitation of former-mayor Ying Xiong, as well as his wife and three adult children. Mr. Ying is remembered for his many eccentric quirks and hobbies, such as his recent formation of the "Daliborians for Change" group, or "political party." Such sad news.

Three notable candidates have declared their intention to run for the mayorship. The President of the Republic of Dalibor has already visited the residences of each candidate, offering gifts and swearing his loyalty and service to whomever may win the race. Below, the Dalibor Daily News has compiled information on each of the candidates to help voters make their decision of election day:

1. Kwan Huiyin, Leader of the White Tiger Triad
Image
Image

Kwan Huiyin is the fifth generation of Kwans' to lead the White Tiger Triad. Despite the protestations of her father, Ms. Kwan was eager to inherit the enterprise her family had worked hard to build and protect. At 23, under the supervision of her uncle, Kwan began to manage the group's Dalibor City brothels. Through her aggressive pricing policies, decisive leadership skills and security enforcement, Kwan quickly became the foremost leader of Dalibor City's international Red Light District.

Her impressive business management skills earned Kwan the respect of nearly all subdivisional leaders of the White Tigers. After the death of her father in 4388, Kwan stood alone as the most legitimate successor to the group's leadership. Since taking control of the group, Ms. Kwan has been seeking routes for economic diversification. In 4389, Ms. Kwan was applauded by the Daliborian labour community after securing a number of crucial agreements with gang leaders and drug cartels in Ntoto. These agreements secure Daliborian jobs in the manufacture and procurement of precursor chemicals exported to Ntoto in the production of methamphetamine.

A shrewd young businesswoman with an impressive acumen, Kwan Huiyin's unique skillset is already a great attribute to the economic wellbeing of Dalibor. Ms. Kwan has also displayed a notable interest in the welfare of everyday Daliborians. Since taking control of the White Tiger brothels, Kwan has established free schools for orphans and the children of prostitutes right across the country. As Mayor, Kwan pledges to expand educational opportunities and create jobs.

2. Du Daoyong, Leader of the Phoenix Brothers' Triad
Image
Image

Du Daoyong is the adopted son of former Phoenix Brothers' Leader Du Yiuhing. Du Daoyong, born Chen Daoyong, was the son of a prostitute and an unknown father. When his mother disappeared at age 10, Du was forced to live on the streets. Soon, Du began to lead a group of similarly orphaned youths in the back alleys of Dalibor City. Du worked any odd job he could find to ensure that none of the children in his group went hungry. At 15, Du began working with subdivisional gang leaders in the Phoenix Brothers' Triad. Du's impressive work ethic, loyalty and dog-like brutality quickly impressed his superiors.

At 17, Du was summoned to the palatial mansion of the Phoenix Brothers' Leader, Du Yiuhing. Du Yiuhing and Daoyong became close very quickly and within six months of their first meeting, Du Yiuhing added Daoyong to his family register and officially adopted him. With no legitimate sons, Daoyong inherited his adopted-father's vast fortune when Du Yiuhing was gunned-down in Udon Nakhon, Hanzen. Through an occasionally violent power struggle, Daoyong eventually gained control of the Triad, desperate to continue his adoptive father's legacy.

Since taking control of the Triad, Mr. Du has led a major revitalization project of the Gambling Quarter, overhauling each of the gang's colossal casinos. Mr. Du has also opened a new facility just last month, specializing in the piracy of software, movies, television shows, video games and YingPop products. Mr. Du said at the opening ceremony that, "if Indrala is going to continue to churn out high-tech stuff, we'd be stupid not to capitalize on that."

Mr. Du has never forgotten or tried to hide his orphaned past. After taking control of the Phoenix Brothers', Mr. Du has spent vast amounts of cash constructing and maintaining a system of orphanages in Dalibor City. He hopes to bring the system nationwide in the future. As Mayor, Du pledges to "reasonably contain" Dalibor City's vast Red Light District, and expand opportunities for international investment.

3. Chen Tai, Leader of the Tian Long Tong Triad
Image
Image

After spending nearly two-decades practicing commerce abroad, Chen Tai, Leader of the Tian Long Tong Triad is prepared to lead Dalibor City toward a brighter future! Few in Dalibor can predict market trends as well as Chen, who has made millions in the Dovani arms trade as the continent has descended into chaos and civil war from time to time. Differentiating business from his ethics has never been hard: Chen has never traded a gun Dalibor, in compliance with the President's gun control efforts.

Mr. Chen Tai is of a long line of Chens', nearly as old as the island of Dalibor itself! Chen worked very closely with his father, Chen Ruogang, in learning the ropes of the family business. Now, as leader of the Tian Long Tong, Chen Tai has earned a reputation as the "Diplomat of Dalibor," brokering peace between the three major Triad groups within Dalibor City (the Outlands remain free-game) as well as working with local businesses to increase their export capabilities. Chen's Tian Long Tong has also recently become the largest private lender in Dalibor, extending credit to Outlander farmers, Trigunian investors and everyone in between.

After suffering a minor stroke two years ago, Chen has become very invested in the issue of healthcare, establishing free-clinics within Dalibor City and throughout the Tian Long Tong-controlled portions of the Outlands. As mayor of Dalibor City, Chen pledges to continue the peace between the major groups, expand healthcare options and continue to increase export volume.

Mr. Chen enjoys an election night feast. Congratulations Mr. Mayor!

Dalibor City, Dalibor: In a hotly contested election, Mr. Chen Tai, Leader of the Tian Long Tong Triad, and one of Terra's most successful arms dealers, has been chosen as the next mayor of Dalibor City. President Zhao arrived to Mr. Chen's election night headquarters after the results were announced to bow and swear his "undying loyalty and service" to the Mayor-elect.

Chen secured around 50.04% of the vote, while his opponents Kwan Huiyin (38.40%) and Du Daoyong (11.56%) conceded the election early in the evening, recognizing that the majority of support was behind Chen.

In his victory speech, Mayor-elect Chen vowed to expand his gang's free-clinic program, increase arms and chemical production, and work to ease export restrictions. True to his reputation as the "Diplomat of Dalibor," Chen has vowed to protect the peace in Dalibor City, and has promised to ensure greater stability for those in the Outlands.
