Whatever he did as a government member in the national-syndicalist regime, Interim-Chancellor Bohmer saw on time that things had to change, and facilitated the transition to democracy the people of Ostmark wanted. We remember Interim-Chancellor Bohmer as the man who led Ostmark to democracy and freedom, and hope that the Ostmarkers will remember him in the same way. We pray for Interim-Chancellor Bohmer. Our condolences to his wife, children and other family members, as well as to the people of Ostmark.

Albrecht von Hadamar-Loorburg, King of Eiffelland

Fellow Citizens,

It is with pride and joy that i speak to you, for the first time, from the office of the Chancellorship in the Palace of the Republic, here in Wien. I would like to start my speech by expressing the most heartfelt gratitude to the millions who participated in the first free and democratic elections since the fall of the regime. This historic election must not be mistaken for the victory of a single political party or a single candidate. It is a victory that belongs to the entire National Community, as it writes a new page in the history of our people and our Republic.

A lecture on our recent past would be superfluous. We all know where we come from. We all know what we suffered during the years of National-Syndicalism, but we also know how much we suffered during the Days of Sorrow. We must learn from our mistakes, and it is also vital to not fall into a spiral of eternal hatred and resentment.

We will stand united, as one people
, irrespective of our ideological and political differences, against the challenges that await us in the future. I will always stress this point, for i believe the union of our national forces will bring about the material and moral progress of our nation and, with that, an improvement of the quality of life for the people.

Unity is the key to our success.

When i spoke to Interim Kanzler Bohmer shortly before his death, he asked me to make a promise. That promise was to always work for the people, in the interest of people, and to prevent dark forces from taking over this country again. I will not express an opinion on his adherence to National-Syndicalism, which is fairly well known, but we must also accept the fact that despite his role in the regime, none of this would be possible hadn't Interim Kanzler Bohmer call this election and allow the people to participate in the nation-making and nation-building process we are all now part of. Herr Bohmer will not be remembered as the right hand of a dictator, but as the man who, in the end, recollected himself and allowed our nation to progress, and to free itself from the ghosts and the demons of the past. A dark past we must now forget, so that we may move forward.

Past rivalries, past adherences to National-Syndicalism, will not obstruct the participation to public and political life. Provided we will all join forces in the new democratic spirit of our renewed Republic, our future can only be bright and prosperous, so that our children and our children's children will live a life full of joy, happiness, and most importantly, in freedom. Our Republic is a precious little diamond, that we are all equally required to defend and protect from the dangers coming from without, but also from within.

My administration will strive for a stronger, renwed and dynamic international cooperation. My first thoughts go to our neighbors in the Kingdom of Eiffelland. Our southern neighbors have always supported our nation and our people, even during the darkest days. Even tho our nations fly different flags, we are both inherently part of the same community, the German community and we now finally share common values as never before. The spirit of cooperation and friendship between Ostmark and Eiffeland is a guarantee of peace and stability, in Germania and Europe, and i am eager to cooperate with Chancellor Rheinfeld as soon as possible. Once again, Ostmark salutes Eiffelland as a fully fledged member of the community of free and democratic nations of Europe.

To our East, the Tarusan Tsardom has indeed expressed perplexity and sometimes hostility towards our cause, due to the recent events here in our homeland. But i will not hold any grudge, and i will not seek any form of retaliation. The borders will stay open, trade will not be halted. In fact i will seek a renewed and stronger political and economic cooperation, in the form of trade deals and agreements, to further develope the relationship beween Ostmark and our eastern neighbor.

The past cannot be undone, but we can still write the future.

The Republic of Ostmark will work, with all the nations of Europe, to secure a future of peace and cooperation. Ostmark will also support all agencies and international institutions that strive for an ever stronger international cooperation, and will seek membership into said institutions to contribute to peace, democracy and freedom.

Compatriots,


What we have accomplished will be remembered by future generations. Europe will remember the pride and strenght and courage of a people, the people of Ostmark, who refused to give up to uncertainty and despair, and rebuilt their nation when everything seemed hopeless and lost.

No! Ostmark is not lost!

We will succeed and, togheter, we will rise from the ashes and the ruins of our dark past.

We look forward to cooperating with our brother nation in the northeast, and to lead us to a prosperous future. I commend Chancellor Eidman for his wise words. I have all the confidence that he will lead Ostmark to a brighter future. Eiffelland will do what it can do to help with that.

By Heinrich Obenaus

WIEN (Ostmark) - With 74 votes against 26, the National Assembly approved the long awaited reform of the economic system, completing the transition from a central planned economy to free market. The Centre Party and the Christian Democratic Union have also supported the reform, upon the approval by the Social Democratic Party majority to introduce amendments that will further promote private and foreign investments in the near future. The National People's Party led by Karl Dietrich, however, accused Chancellor Eidman of "selling the country to foreign capitalist lobbies" in "the same way Chancellor Kohler sold our people to international loan sharks" sparking protests from the seats of the SPDO.

With the approval of the reform, citizens will now be allowed to carry out private economic activities without requiring the ministerial authorisations. Chancellor Eidman also reassured workers of state owned factories and companies that "The government will do everything in its powers to protect jobs and occupation, but will also provide workers with further training, so that they may find a new occupation and new opportunities in one of the many sectors of the economy that will soon witness a booming growth". According to the text of the reform approved by the National Assembly, foreign companies that will open subsidiaries or production facilities in Ostmark will benefit of a 75% tax discount for the years 2021-2022.

In an interview with Die Republik, Kanzler Eidman also stated that OMW might become the subsidiary of an Eiffellander company to "modernize its production facilities and shift the production to more modern and environment-friendly vehicles" said Eidman "Our priority is to restart the private sector of the economy and make good use of the countless opportunities the future is offering us" he concluded.
