President Yuen Dead
19 September 4492
________________________________________________________________________________________

Dalibor City, Dalibor: President Yuen Yu is dead after an apparent poisoning that occurred during a meeting on the island of Huiseyan. The claim of a poisoning came from the wife of President Yuen, who was also found dead today at their private residence in Dalibor City. The president is known to have visited the mysterious island just over a week ago following the mass resignation of numerous central government officials. With the absence of an authoritative investigative body it is not expected that there will be an official explanation for the president’s death. Dalibor City police are looking into the death of his wife, which is believed to have been a targeted assassination.

Unrest in Dalibor City
26 September 4492
________________________________________________________________________________________

The Legislative Assembly has been burnt down by mercenaries although no injuries or fatalities have been reported.

Dalibor City, Dalibor: A meeting of the National Solidarity Party (NSP) was interrupted this evening by a gang of unruly youths, believed to have been associated with the triads. Meanwhile, a group of mercenaries stormed the Legislative Assembly, forcing everyone out of the building and then torching the entire structure. The ruling NSP, which was preparing to appoint a successor to deceased President Yuen Yu, has accused Kai Kaleo of attempting a coup.

The Conservative Party, Dalibor Democratic Party, and Monarchist Society have all denounced the NSP for maintaining the status quo and continuing to fail in addressing the very issues which have ignited unrest on the island. However, public opinion in Dalibor City remains split, as half of residents believe that Outlanders are solely responsible for causing chaos in the capital. The other half are more sympathetic, acknowledging the weakness of Dalborian central government and viewing Dalibor as a nation beyond just the capital city.

Some refugees, having made a long journey from their destroyed villages, arrived in Gangzhou, the only area of the capital region that lacks a wall. Utilizing the shells of abandoned properties, these refugees have become squatters. Increasing numbers of these properties have visibly gained residents, as the light of fires can be visible in the night and, in the day, refugees can be seen constructing makeshift wooden structures in and around the buildings. Inundated by refugees and with a Turtle Bay bridge blockaded, Gangzhou has effectively become a major Outlander home within view of the opulent Dalibor City skyline.

Growing Refugee Crisis Outside City Walls
28 October 4492
________________________________________________________________________________________
Image

Dalibor City, Dalibor: The refugee crisis surrounding Dalibor City has only grown in the month since the eruption of Mount Huojuren and it is estimated that many thousands of Outlanders are now calling the abandoned city of Gangzhou their home. Border security in the capital has become increasingly stringent and there are reports that some refugees have been killed when attempting to enter the city. In an attempt to help the situation in Gangzhou, Yingu city officials and emergency responders have been sent to the south to do whatever they can to aid in the situation. The Indralan Tiankong Group has also been helping with the refugee crisis throughout the Outlands. Yingu officials are hoping to work with Tiankong to improve the situation in Gangzhou, which is being treated as the intended site for refugees of the disaster.

And as the skies become clearer and the situation in the west calms, rescue efforts are being expanded and Yingu, in coordination with the United Developmental Assistance Programme, will begin assessing the full impact of the disaster. There is no question that the entire settlement of Huibaigu has been destroyed and most of its residents, caught in very close proximity to the volcano, are presumed dead. It is currently estimated that at least 2,500 have been killed as a result of the disaster, including both the volcanic eruption and consequent earthquakes.

Guo Yaling, Dongru village headman, has led an expedition on the ground, leading a convoy of Outlanders north to the disaster area in hopes of recovering survivors. Before departing on the journey north, Guo briefly appeared with Yingu Mayor Chan Heng to proclaim that the Outlands declare freedom from Dalibor City, allowing Outlanders to determine their own future and build a strong, industrious society that serves all people, not just the corrupt capitalists of the capital. As Guo heads into the disaster zone, Chan departs to Gangzhou to directly assist with the struggle of the refugees.

Turtle Bay Bridge Collapses
30 October 4492
________________________________________________________________________________________
Image

Dalibor City, Dalibor: Linking Gangzhou and Dalibor City, the Turtle Bay Bridge has been a central point of conflict in the stand-off between refugees and the capital's mercenary guards. Patrol boats scatter the bay, defending against refugees seeking entry through the capital's most vulnerable bay coastline. As tensions also grow in the Outlands, with settlements banding together in opposition to Dalibor City, there was significant concern that greater conflict could erupt from the circumstances surrounding the bridge.

But now, early this afternoon, the Turtle Bay Bridge collapsed, first in its mid-section following a minor explosion, and then in the western section, nearest to Dalibor City, due to lack of structural integrity. Hundreds of refugees and city guards were thrown into the waters of Turtle Bay by the collapse. Militia boats and other water craft in the area are continuing to assist in recovering survivors from the waters. The cause of the initial explosion is unknown.

Capital & Outland Leaders Hold Talks on Ongoing Crises
30 November 4492
________________________________________________________________________________________

An Outlander attacking the northern capital border wall.

Dalibor City, Dalibor: Leaders of the capital and Outlands agreed to meet today to discuss the future of Dalibor and search for a solution to continued instability on the island. Attending the meeting were Yingu Mayor Chan Heng, Dongru headman Guo Yaling, Prince Kai Kaleo, Leader of the Opposition Ho Lau Cheok, and Dalibor City Mayor Chen Tao, among numerous deputies and aides. The lengthy meeting lasted most of the day as parties argued over the best solution to the humanitarian and political crises facing Dalibor. The presidency remains vacant, Gangzhou and other capital border areas have become shanty towns, and tensions are at a breaking point. Just earlier this week an organized group of armed Outlanders attempted to breach a northern border crossing into the capital, killing two guards and burning down an outpost with molotov cocktails.

Dalibor City has become a closely guarded fortress and heightened Outlander violence has only exasperated fears among residents in the capital. And in the Outlands, Guo Yaling has been aggressively organizing a wider resistance against Dalibor City, even establishing an informal government claiming authority over the Outlands. This has received some cooperation from Mayor Chan, although there has been significant disagreement over the extent to which Outlands should mobilize against the capital. Another point of contention has been Chan and Kai's greater willingness to accept foreign assistance, particularly from corporate entities such as the Tiankong Group. This has angered Guo and his allies, who have placed emphasis on rallying Outlanders against the capitalist evils which have guided Dalibor City and caused the enormous inequality on the island. Guo has also shown distaste for the east's admiration of "antiquated nobility" organized around the ancient House of Kai. Additionally, Kai has been aligned with Chan in accepting corporate cooperation. Reportedly, Kai is set to also meet with triad leaders tomorrow, at the request of the Tian Long Tong Triad. The numerous triad organizations are rumored to have agreed to temporary unity as they are also seeking an end to national tensions and, with their considerable influence in Dalibor City, they are seeking to push capital officials to seriously consider peace agreements that may be put forward by the Outlanders.

Creation of the Socialist Union of Dalibor
As the Outlanders declare their freedom, Dalibor City also gains its own sovereignty.
5 February 4493
________________________________________________________________________________________
Image

Gangzhou, Dalibor: Emerging from discussions that initially occurred this past November, the leading figures of Dalibor finalized plans for the island's future last month and today marks the official founding of the Socialist Union of Dalibor. With a strong push by Guo Yaling, the Outlanders have created their own sovereign state which will attend to their specific needs for development and social advancement in The Outlands. Government resources will no longer be monopolized by Dalibor City and all focus will now be solely on Outlander needs.

The Socialist Union of Dalibor will be a federal union consisting of three constituent regions: the Outlander People's Republic, the Yingu Chiefdom, and the Gangzhou Capital Region. Initial plans aimed for a more unitary structure but disagreements between Guo, seeking a more anti-capitalist socialist regime, and Chan, more sympathetic to liberal interests, led to the emergence of plans for a union-state. At the top level, the Socialist Union of Dalibor will be responsible for most matters of foreign policy, defense, environment, immigration, and infrastructure development. Beyond those core areas, each 'constituent country' will have relative autonomy. Free movement will exist within the entire union as well.

Meanwhile, Dalibor City has split off, establishing itself as an independent city-state. Negotiations are ongoing for the formulation of a formal economic agreement between the city-state and the union in order to reduce some barriers that will exist as result of being two sovereign entities. The Dalibor City State has already agreed to establish a Outland Development Fund, a dedicated budgetary allotment for helping aid in the development of the Outlands. This fund emerged largely as a result of discussions between Prince Kaleo and prominent city-state leaders. The fund also has a particular focus on helping with the resettlement of refugees in Gangzhou and other cities, encouraging refugees to not choose Dalibor City as their new home.

Special Report: Human Remains Identified on Huiseyan
15 October 4494
________________________________________________________________________________________

Daliborian coast guard off the coast of the Huiseyan.

Kaizhou, Jiaozhi Province, Indrala: Earlier this month a report was published by the Dalibor Free Press regarding the discovery of human remains on Huiseyan and there have since been ongoing investigations of the small island off Dalibor's northern coast. Long shrouded in mystery and guarded by private militia, the island was abandoned as a headquarters for the Huiseyan Group during the unrest of the past two years. The Dalibor City State claims to exercise control of the island, occasionally sending mercenaries to harass Socialist Union authorities tasked with exploring the facilities on Huiseyan. Nonetheless, the Socialist Union persisted in efforts to search Huiseyan for information on its former residents and in the process they found bones.

It is suggested that the remains of more than one human were uncovered however this is unconfirmed. But the single person to have been identified on Huiseyan has created quite a shock and generated headlines throughout Terra. Ryeo Jiwoo, leader of the Kyo cultural monarchy in the mid-4400s, believed to have died around the time of the collapse of the federation, is now determined to have actually died at a later date. His originally declared death on 1 November 4486 came with little attention and his direct family had already slid out of the spotlight, taking the maiden name of their mother before presumably moving elsewhere in Dovani. The House of Ryeo had no major statement regarding the death, which became public knowledge in December 4486 when patriarch Ryeo Jiyong was asked of the status of his family in the north of Dovani.

With news of Ryeo Jiwoo's remains being found on Huiseyan, the House of Ryeo has demanded a broader investigation into the death of the Kyo monarch. Officials in the Socialist Union have heightened security surrounding Huiseyan and have announced that patrol boats have now been authorized to use full force against any mercenaries sent by the Dalibor City State. With limited resources in the Union government, Premier Chan Heng of the Yingu Chiefdom has extended an open invitation for Indralan authorities to join in investigations on Huiseyan should they be interested.

Gangzhou Revitalization Project Launched
25 October 4494
________________________________________________________________________________________

Gangzhou, Dalibor: The Socialist Union has officially enacted the Gangzhou Revitalization Act, which lays out an ambitious ten-year plan for the improvement of living conditions and infrastructure in what has become the island's refugee hub. Also serving as the capital of the Socialist Union, Gangzhou, operating as an semi-autonomous capital region, will have dedicated administrative leadership to oversee development in the city. And in the coming year, Gangzhou will receive its first share of funds from the Dalibor City State's Outland Development Fund, an important booster for development resources. Officials are also reaching out to interested foreign developers to aid in building a new Gangzhou. Of particular interest have been the numerous caizu of Indrala, known for a variety of large-scale urban development projects. Many challenges are still facing the government and thousands of refugees continue to reside in makeshift shanties that occupy the abandoned residential towers of the Gangzhou's past.

Dalibor City: Major Indralan real estate holding company Lim Son Ah Properties has announced that it will be relocating its central headquarters to Dalibor City, opting for lower corporate taxes and less regulations that what was possible with incorporation in Kaizhou, Indrala. The relocation has not come as a major surprise due to the long-time activity of Lim Son Ah Properities in Dalibor, including its notable past scandals involving Zhou Wai-fung and his attempted tax evasion through a shell company in Dalibor City. The incident led to Zhou's departure from Indralan national politics, returning his focus to new business investments and world travel on his super yacht, which was ultimately destroyed during controversy in northern Dovani.

Yingu: Grand Chieftain Kaleo has announced that he will dedicate a large sum of his family's wealth to the betterment of Dalibor, assisting in the modernization of infrastructure, social services, and other vital necessities that were absent under the corrupt regimes of the past centuries. An immediate priority has been the establishment of a public education system in Dalibor along with the expansion of access to adequate health care.

Dongru: Officials of Socialist Union gathered at the ruins of Huibaigu to honor the lives of those who died in the national disaster brought about by the eruption of Mount Huojuren. The established death toll is at 2,985 with many thousands more displaced from their long-time homes and robbed of their entire livelihood. The government reiterated its commitment to building a stronger Dalibor that cares for all of its citizens, from the inner cities to the most rural villages.

Huiseyan Investigation Inconclusive
2 April 4495 (POSTDATED)
________________________________________________________________________________________

Yingu, Dalibor: Authorities have announced that they will be concluding their investigations on the island of Huiseyan, having found no details on its former occupants, the organizers of the Huiseyan conference, and finding no explanation for the the presence of human remains of at least three people, including Ryeo Jiwoo. A private investigator, hired by the House of Ryeo, was permitted to explore the island and cooperated with Daliborian authorities during the investigation. Now faced with an inconclusive outcome, all parties are at a loss as to how to proceed with the case. The Socialist Union has stated that it has no reason to pursue this issue any further, leaving the House of Ryeo to determine if it will push forward with its private investigator. And it does appear that that will be the case as the family is desperate to find answers regarding the suspicious death of its former cultural monarch. The family has also upped its personal security, apparently due to concerns surrounding the situation.

UDAP and Tiankong Awarded for Huojuren Response
4 October 4495
________________________________________________________________________________________

Gangzhou, Dalibor: Premiers Guo Yaling and Chan Heng have announced that they will be awarding the first ever Hero of the Union distinctions to Mathias Hedstrom, Director-General of the United Developmental Assistance Programme, and Ren Guanting, CEO of Tiankong Group. Intended to serve as the highest honor of the Socialist Union of Dalibor, the Hero of the Union distinction is to be bestowed upon those deemed to have rendered great and exceptionally outstanding meritorious services in the cause of the nation and its people.

Speaking of the decision to honor these two foreigners, Premiers Guo and Chan commented on the core role that UDAP and Tiankong served in helping respond to the monumental crisis that was the eruption of Mount Huojuren. While the central government opted for silence and left the resource-less Outlands to figure out the problem, UDAP and Tiankong stepped up to lend assistance in whatever way they could, even when faced by ongoing fires, smoke clouds, and a growing refugee crisis. Innumerable challenges remain for Dalibor following this crisis and the mass loss of human life, but there is no doubt that things would have been even worse without the assistance that was brought forward by Mr. Hedstrom's and Mr. Ren's organizations.

Dongru: Premier Guo Yaling is overseeing plans for the creation of a "Daliborian People's Army," a dedicated military force for the Socialist Union of Dalibor. Over the course of the past century the original Daliborian military had been gradually phased out in favor of private military contractors.

Gangzhou: The Socialist Union's first national elections have officially been scheduled to be held in the spring of 4496. This election will determine the seats of first session of the Assembly of the Union and allow for selection of the Union's chairman and state counsellor.

Gangzhou: ZhijiaGIS licensing has been obtained by the national government, enabling use of the advanced geographic information system to aid in decision-making and development planning throughout the Union. While licensing for use is centrally located with the national government, program access will be provided to all levels of government on the island. In addition to its role in helping made development choices, the software will also be useful in identifying population trends and areas of special need in Dalibor.

Yingu: Early stages of resumed construction activity is underway at the abandoned Yingu airport. The Yingu Chiefdom hopes to have the airport fully operational before the turn of the century. While the project is being funded in large part through the Outland Development Fund, the government is also seeking private partners.

Council-Regent Chen Pushes New Economic Growth
17 October 4495
________________________________________________________________________________________

Dalibor City: After two years of national unrest and struggles with a refugee crisis, there has been a restoration of order in the sovereign Dalibor City State. With the ineffectual President Yuen Yu, along with the ruling National Solidarity Party, completely ousted, it has become possible for the entire island of Dalibor to realize its full potential. The Outlanders have found a new voice and Dalibor City, as its own free state, can place even greater emphasis on its unique strengths as a financial centre for Dovani and a tourist hotspot.

Through the leadership found with the city-state's board of directors, Dalibor City looks to the new century with confidence. Council-Regent Chen Tao has lauded the success that city has already had in attracting new investors, referring to the recent relocation of Lim Son Ah Properties to the city-state from Indrala. "We hope to see more this in the future. There are clear advantages for companies choosing our beautiful city as home. We have highly competitive and simplistic tax codes with minimal regulations. Coupled with the strength of the local financial hub, there is such ease for corporate activity. And moving forward, I think we could see even more opportunity emerge as the Dalibor City Port grows and new, affordable manufacturing resources inevitably appear in nearby regions of the larger island."

The government of Dalibor City continues to have frequent discussions with the neighboring Socialist Union in an attempt to broaden the economic links between the two sovereign states. As human development improves in the Union there is anticipation of growth in the manufacturing sector, leading to Council-Regent Chen's suggestion of future opportunities emerging on the island. While the Socialist Union is intent on doing as much as it can without the close involvement of the city-state, it seems most logical that they will ultimately give in to the reality of Dalibor City's necessity to the advancement of the Daliborian economy.

Dalibor City: Zhijia Grand Hotel has announced that it will be constructing a new hotel-resort in the northwestern district of the city. This will be the first major physical expansion of an Indralan caizu into Dalibor. The Tiankong Group, known for its response to the Huojuren crisis, is the only other Indralan caizu to have operated on the island.

Dalibor City: The White Tiger Triad has purchased property near the site of the collapse Turtle Bay bridge, moving ahead on plans for the construction of additional port facilities along the city-state's bay coast. While the new port facility is expected to link with favored /legal/ business operations of the triad organization, leases are expected to be provided to permit other companies to utilize the facilities, potentially at lower cost than the main ports.

Zhou Wai-fung Elected to Board of Directors, Dies
12 May 4499
________________________________________________________________________________________
Image

Dalibor City: Selected from the western district of the city, Zhou Wai-fung of Lim Song Ah Properties was to become the newest member of the governmental board of directors. A close associate of Council-Regent Chen Tao, Zhou expressed youthful optimism upon his election to the board and hoped to push for more policies to enhance regional economic cooperation. However, at the age of 97, Zhou has been greatly limited in his physical abilities despite a strong insistence to persist in a prominent role with LSA Properties. The day following his election to the board it was announced that Zhou died in his sleep overnight.

Zhou, originally from Indrala, rose to become a leading executive of Lim Son Ah Properties, a Kaizhou-based real estate holding company which would eventually relocate to Dalibor City in the late 4480s. During the 4450s, Zhou led the Indralan Patriotic Society and served as a member of the Indralan legislature. He would soon depart politics and his party would dissolve after having been found to be involved in electoral fraud and illegal financing through a Daliborian shell company. Zhou would take a temporary retirement, traveling around the world in his yacht. After running into trouble in northern Dovani that resulted in the sinking of his yacht and the complete ban from entry into a country, Zhou returned to Indrala. He would then rejoin LSA Properties, commanding a central executive role until his death.

A public memorial gala will be held at the Imperial Palace Casino this weekend. And as per Zhou's will, a red panda sanctuary will be constructed in Meihua, Indrala, referred to as his "most memorable homes." Meihua was the site of one of Zhou's three mansions.

Daliborians Seek More Educational Opportunities
23 May 4499
________________________________________________________________________________________

Dalibor City: Mixed opinions on the University of Gangzhou are leading to increasing demand for the establishment of greater post-secondary educational opportunities in Dalibor City. Over the past two years there has been a notable increase in the number of students choosing to go abroad for higher education, mostly to Indrala or Hanzen. The Council-Regent and Board have stated that they will "consider options." Meanwhile, some private organizations are starting to work together with educators in the revived public education system to formulate possible ideas for private higher education institutions.

There has also been interest in coordinating with the government of the Socialist Union, which has been very open in its desire to create a native system of public higher education for Dalibor. Insofar progress has been minimal for the Socialist Union, which has currently focused on boosting primary and secondary education access throughout the Outlands. This daunting task is still expected to span years but there is hope that coordination with interested wealthy parties in Dalibor City could speed up development for all levels of education on the island.

King Kaleo has been among the first to visit Dalibor City to meet with local education representatives and there is a definite interest from the House of Kai to provide significant support for at least two private post-secondary institutions. Recently elected Chairman of the Socialist Union Chan Heng is scheduled to travel to Dalibor City later this month to discuss opportunities for development of public institutions, potentially ones which would equally serve both sovereign states of Dalibor.

Dalibor City: The Yingu International Airport has officially opened with limited operations that will greatly increase the city's economic potential and its connections to regional trade. There is still ongoing construction on for additional runways and facilities but for now the airport does possess the capability to receive air traffic. At present, only regional airports for Dalibor are expected to utilize the airport but Chairman Chan has expressed hopes to raise the visibility of Yingu as both an investment opportunity and a tourist destination for those all across Terra.
