    We consider the Ovamboland Empire as being within our sphere of influence. We humbly request to the latter to leave Ovamboland out of their machinations in the name of African unity, and the former remember its place.

    To: Kingdom of Madagascar
    Our deal with regard to the Kingdom of Maputo remains, but we expect to take over the full duties of protecting the Kingdom of Maputo within the next few years. The Kingdom of Madagascar is, quite frankly, not an equal partner in these matters as in the event of a violation of Maputo's sovereignty, it will be the Zulus doing the real work.

    Fars is rightfully part of Russia. To the population we demand that you surrender, swear your loyalty to the Tsar, and turn these rebels into the authorities. Rebellion against the Imperial Republic is not tolerated and the rebels will be punished without impunity. The loyal citizens of Russia will be welcomed back into the fold with open arms and granted full rights along with any other citizen. This rebellion will be put down, and the rightful enlightened rule of the Tsar will be returned to this land. Fear not people of Russia, for the might of the Russian Army shall free you from your chains of servitude to these evil rebels, and we will reunite you with your Russian brothers and Sisters!

    Your trusted source of information on the latest developments in the Pelican State.

    State of Louisiana becomes the United States of Louisiana

    Since independence, Louisiana has been a unitary state, but it seems that is about to be history after 144 years. A new constitution has been put forward by the Blanchard regime to the Louisiana Congress, in which Louisiana will be officially reformed into a federation of eight states: Dakota, Guiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Oregon, and Alabama - the latter currently in the hands of the self-proclaimed Confederate State of Alabama. The nation as a whole is referred to by the new name United States of Louisiana in the proposed legislation, which is expected to pass easily with support from the supermajority of government-friendly independents in both houses of Congress.

    This was presented by President Blanchard herself as a major democratic reform bringing government closer to the people as the new state legislatures will be directly elected, and in many ways the federalization will broaden the powers of local government. The 2028 Constitution does however retain most of the provisions of the 1997 Constitution which was adopted soon after President Blanchard's rise to power and put a larger focus on the executive branch of government. Current election laws banning anti-military candidates will remain in place both on the federal and state level to ensure national security, with pro-Blanchard independent candidates expected to win a majority of state legislature seats when elections are held. State Governors will be appointed by the President, and there are already plenty of rumours going around as for who President Blanchard will choose.

    Secretary of the Interior presents New Orleans-Seattle railroad project
    With the Oregon territory peacefully annexed, and soon to be incorporated as a state in the new United States of Louisiana, Secretary of the Interior Jean Roy announced the expansion of the Move North! initiative to cover Oregon with additional funding. To further promote growth, tax cuts have been implemented in Dakota, Kansas, Minnesota and Missouri, and will be implemented in Oregon by next year aswell. In addition to this, Secretary Roy presented government plans to construct a New Orleans-Seattle railroad as a massive infrastructure project to connect the Mississippi River delta to the Pacific coast, and help develop wasteland regions along the route.

    President Norbert Walker took to the stands today to anounce the new Agricultural Investments and Development Subsidies program, or AIDS, through which he hopes to bootstrap the Texan economy into the continental spotlight. His plan outlines the proposed construction of irrigation canals in key agricultural counties, in an effort to retain much of the runoff from the rainy season and modernize the young republic's antiquated water distribution systens.

    From Galveston, Texas, this is Daniel Redman, and you're listening to WKIOT, Texan Broadcasting Corporation.

    Fars will continue the war effort into the indefinite future until such time that Russian forces are completely removed from our territory. The Tsar has no power here, and never will.

    Flags of the United States of Louisiana

    Civil and state flag of Louisiana

    In connection to the adoption of a new federal constitution, an amendment to the Louisiana Flag Code was passed by Congress to institute a new Union flag. Eight stars represent the eight states of Louisiana, on a background of red and blue.

    War flag and naval ensign of Louisiana

    The war flag and naval ensign differs slightly from the civil and state flag with its entirely blue background. This flag is reserved for use by the different branches of Louisiana's military and their Commander-in-Chief, the President of Louisiana.

    State flags
    All eight states also have their own state flags which are shown below. In the case of Alabama, the flag has been adopted by an appointed government-in-exile under Governor Russell O'Neal but happens to be the same one as flown by the rebellious Confederate State of Alabama.


    From left to right: Alabama, Dakota, Guiana, and Kansas.


    From left to right: Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, and Oregon.


    Edit: Credit goes to our own JohannaK for the USL flags. As for the state flags, I found them in various places on the internet.

    We can hardly be considered rebellious when we were never part of the SoL, or the USL as you now call yourselves, to begin with. With all due respect, you Louisianan boys should run home or we'll whip you out of New Orleans like we whipped out out of Alabama.

    The world is watching.

    The Zulu Empire, in the name of promoting African security, will be stationing an army in Maputo province in order to safeguard the country from internal and external threats.

    Forgot to post this already, but orders hardlock 28th November at Noon Eastern Time. Softlock is 24 hours earlier.

    No order revision or military orders are accepted after a softlock. No orders period are accepted after a hardlock.

    The Kingdom of Madagascar will also be stationing an army in the Kingdom of Maputo to ensure the Kingdom's neutrality during this transitional period.

    REPORTS OF STREET FIGHTING IN SOFIA. Reports began to emerge early this morning of a sudden disturbance in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. National Police units under the command of the Interior Department began to take positions outside the capitol in the early morning hours. One journalist at the scene says the the positions looked defensive and that there were at least one heavy machine gun at a sandbagged position. Two hours later, right before dawn, power throughout the capital was cut. WIthin twenty minutes, a detachment from the Bulgarian Central Command approached the palace and were fired upon by the NPUs. A larger detachment returned fifteen minutes later and fighting broke out between the NPUs and BCC detachment.

    This seems to be a reoccurring event throughout the entirety of Great Bulgaria. General Koloman Rybar has declared martial law throughout the country and announcing the president has been saved from a "Interior Police" plot and spirited away to safety.

    SUPREME COUNCIL OF THE BULGARIAN TRANSITION. Director Rybar of the Supreme Council of the Bulgarian Transition announced today that the president has resigned the presidency and retired to his summer home off the Black Sea. Besides the usual condemnations of the now defunct National Police and Interior Department, Director Rybar declared his intent to normalize Bulgaria's international position, especially with regards to the United Dioceses of Italy.

    "It is important that Great Bulgaria and the UDI reach an understanding on Slavonia," Rybar said.

    Official statement from President Blanchard
    "In light of recent events in Bulgaria, the United States of Louisiana gives its full support to Director Rybar and the Supreme Council of the Bulgarian Transition. I personally hope for the peaceful continuation of what will surely be a successful transition to order, guaranteeing the security of the Bulgarian nation and the safety of the people of Bulgaria. Director Rybar has shown exemplary leadership qualities in handling this situation, and we look forward to working more closely with him on the international stage."

    PNI sees majority disappear in 2028 Elections
    The New Imperial Party has awakened to a reduced majority in the General Assembly as they have lost four seats from 13 to 9 in recent elections. The wars in Pernambuco and Entre Rios has cost the PNI support with only a strong economy keeping the PNI from loosing more seats. The Democratic Party gained two seats with millions of new rural voters benefiting from Rural Improvement and Social Welfare programs championed by the Democrats. The Popular Labour Party retained all of their seats. What surprised many was the election of the first Assembly member of the Corporatist Party of Brasil from the Province of Uruguay. This is a first for a young party formed only a few years ago. Local elections have also seen the reduction of PNI holds with a working coalition of Democratic and Popular Labor party forming a loyal opposition in the provinces. Both Democratic and Popular Labor leaders have called for a national focus on trade and social welfare spending in the rural provinces to bring them up to urban living standards. The Imperial and Corporatists continue to focus on military strength and technological development to enhance the status of the country.

    Assembleia Geral (General Assembly)
    Chamber of Deputies (Câmara dos Deputados) - 32 members. 8 seats per province. Representatives are elected every four years in local races and the majority party determines who is President

    Imperial Senate - 12 members which are elected for a lifetime term, candidates have to be at least 40 years old and have an annual income of 800,000 Reais.

    AG Breakdown
    New Imperial Party (PNI) Centrism, Conservatism, Nationalism: 13 Seats Assembly/5 Senate (2024) : 9 Seats Assembly/ 5 Senate (2028)

    Democratic Party (DEM) Economic liberalism, Liberal conservatism, Christian democracy, Federalism: 10 Seats Assembly/4 Senate (2024): 13 Seats Assembly/4 Senate (2028)

    Popular Labour Party (PTP) Labour movement, Populism, Progressivism: 9 Seats Assembly/3 Senate (2024): 9 Seats Assembly/3 Senate (2028)

    Corporatist Party of Brasil (PCB) Nationalism, Mixed Economy, Direct Action: 1 Seats Assembly (2028)

    Prince Bras conducts aerial tour of Capital
    Prince Bras has lent his support of Imperial Airways with an tour of the capital by airship.

Imperial Airways has become popular with many and talk of expanding service to Africa and the Caribbean is winding its way around the capital. When the Carnival landed the Prince had noting but praise for the Captain and crew. "They have conducted themselves with the utmost professionalism and are a honor to fly with. I wish them the greatest success and wish to see Imperial Airways become the standard bearer of Brasil".

    News from the Australasian Empire
    General Sutherland has been commended for his rapid decisive victory over Papau. The Queen and Prime minister have both personally commended him on his actions and there have been talks of a knighthood in hte works.

    During the conquest of Papau, Private Frederick Pearson has received the Distinguished Service Order for his actions. Some of his company and him were cut off, surrounded and outnumbered but his bravery and ferocity kept them alive. Many of the men say their lives were saved because of him and that he was fighting with the strength of at least 5 men. As such, Private Frederick Pearson is also up for promotion and if this continues many speculate that he could rapidly rise through the ranks of the Australasian Military.

    Address to the people from the Prime Minister, Sir Robert Cunningham
    "As you would all have heard, in recent days because of the bravery and skill of our men as well as the leadership of our officers we have had decisive victories in the Pacific. We have a proud history, hailing from one of the greatest empires the world has ever seen and we shall continue to maintain and protect that legacy. Men such as General Lee, General Sutherland and Admiral Hopper have shown us the dedication, intelligence and bravery that the people of our nation possess. Maintaining and securing our trade and safety in the Australasian region is part of our namesake and if we band together there is no doubt of the great accomplishments that we can achieve. Together we can rise up and reinstate the glory that is an Empire that stretches across the globe, one on which the sun never sets. That Empire shall be the Australasian Empire."
