    Empire:

    • The grey area question of Victoria Island, the southwestern territory right off the Justosian coast, will soon be answered officially. Though connected to the mainland via bridge, the palace & imperial government have considered it a territory for almost a year now. The Governor of the island has sanctioned the citizens' petition for a vote. Conventional wisdom says the vote will be for territory as there's currently no National Sales Tax there.

    Justosia:

    • Foreign Ministry releases general details of the Avalon Accord between Justosia & Tyskonia. Non aggression stances. Mutual agreement to protect shipping lanes to & from. Domestic tax incentives for respective companies. No tariffs stance. Near future defence excercises.

    • Treaty signing being hailed as huge win for the Milenio Imperio Palace, Foreign Ministry, & Her Imperial Majesty's new foreign policy approach.

    • Now being reported that Tyskonia could be in place to bid on newly discovered oil shelf blocks.

    Empire:

    • With the electoral groundwork in place, Victoria Island is set to decide tonight its destiny as part of the Justosian mainland, or an imperial territory. Polls have been open since 8 AM Justosian Time. Last exit poll had imperial territory projected at 53.2%

    • 17 degrees C in Vanguardia. Partly cloudy. Winds NW at roughly 5 mph. 21 degrees C in Victoria Island. Sunny. Winds NW at roughly 15 mph. Chances of precipitation 0%

    Europe:

    • Empress expresses concern over growing tide if insurgencies against legitimate governments & nautical territorial squabbles overseas at prayer luncheon. Calls for "A milenio of peace."

    Justosia:

    • At luncheon Empress calls on Imperial Senate to again raise the Capital Gains & Estate Taxes to partly offset costs of new infrastructure projects. Economists project such moves wouldn't too widely disrupt economy.

    • Grand General of the Imperial Army Jorge Ramos set to address ongoing senate session for need to expand army's depleted tank fleet. Palace has granted rather indifferent ascent. Says that even if approved by the senate, initiative would be on the back burner.

    • 21 degrees C in the mainland today. Sunny. Winds NW at roughly 15 mph. Chances of precipitation 0%

    Emperatriz Annabella Sofia Francisco I

    Justosia:
    Politics:

    • Emperatriz Annabella I is wrapping up her surprise address to a full session of the Imperial Senate. In which she announced that the crown & legislative body should share the responsibility of imposing sanctions. No longer will it be solely a crown power. She continues her moderate path down the halls of millennium. She has called on the senators to pass the related constitutional ammendment promptly.

    • Her Imperial Majesty also petitions senate to pass subsequent full on economic & trade sanctions on the People's Republic of Bourgogne. On humanitarian & war crimes grounds. She has promised immediate crown ascent. Foreign Minister Montez reiterates that the government will only ever recognize the Grand Duchy of Bourgogne & its government in Chagny.

    Foreign Policy:

    • Justosian admittance to the burgeoning Organization of Democratic States almost complete.

    • Palace pre empts criticism that current move by the Emperatriz is designed to seal deal with staunch denial.

    Politics:

    • Imperial Senate passes constitutional ammendment co-oping duty of imposing foreign economic & trade sanctions as requested by the Emperatriz yesterday 90-14 YAY/NAY. All Social Democrats, Socialists, & Communist senators voted in the affirmative. 14 Nationalist senators were the opposition.

    • Senate passes bill affirming full on economic & trade sanctions against the regime known as the People's Republic of Bourgogne. Vote was 102-2 YAY/NAY. Senate's lone 2 Communist senators voted NAY. The Nationalist & Social Democrat parties united. The former voting YAY to strike a blow at radical leftism. The latter in the name of human rights. The senate's 9 Socialist senators voted YAY reportedly because they believe Europe's avowed Socialist & Communist countries are actually perverting the ideologies.

    Emperatriz Annabella Sofia Francisco I

    A Moderate Renaissance
    By Ricardo Salida
    Edition 242

    When the first & former emperor was corrinated 4 years ago, none of us could imagine the dutiful wife standing to his left in every ceremonial palace photo op, seemingly mute, would one up him on the history scale so soon, or frankly ever. Yet here we are. Here Justosia is.

    Emperador Carlos Francisco I was known as the Lightning Monarch for the speed of his aggressive, nationalist reforms. Chiefly rebuilding the military as such. That controversy was also the stepping stone for multiple occasions when the empire was almost pulled into regional conflicts & wars. Stark contrast to today. When the Emperatriz announced the new foreign policy was that of almost total neutrality & avoidance of conflict at virtually all costs, nationalist heads either spun or fell off. She has since announced a national freeways infrastructure project & refocused imperial attention on the school systems. She's called for the expansion of the nuclear power grid. To help pay for it all, she's proposing 2 hefty tax increases. In all of this, the military is coming second, third, or not at all.

    Annabella Francisco I & her husband aren't 2 sides of the same coin. No. It's like they were minted in different Justosias. She says she will always lean right but describes herself as a compassionate conservative. She believes in the Nationalist Right Bloc but says it needs new direction according to friends' candids. She has truly embarked on a crusade to rehabilitate the empire's image continent wide. She's seen reestablishing of relations with Pelasgia, Lars, & Eiffelland. She's brokered & signed the Avalon Accord with Tyskonia. She's managed to obtain observer status membership within the new & rising Organisation of Democratic States alliance. She has unabashedly spoken up for human & democratic rights. So, so far, so good.

    Where her predecessor was a rugged, stern, aggro father to the nation, she seeks to be almost the polar opposite as its doting mother. This & she's only been on the Throne of Falcons for a couple weeks. Indeed this is a moderate renaissance the likes of which not seen since 1969.

    Ricardo Salida is a published author & former IHN pundit.

    Foreign Policy:

    • ODS Ambassador Sauzo delivers maiden address at summit.

    • Pressed again on the matter, Foreign Minister Montez says the governments of Ostmark, Polesia, & the People's Republic of Bourgogne are wholly illegitimate as they were birthed by violence & unelected. While also citing their disqualifying human rights violations, he called on the government of the Kadakistani Union to use its sway to quell the aforementioned far left regimes' actions.

    • Imperial Foreign Ministry refuses to dignify remarks from Sylvanian publication with a response. When caught in the hallway before a meeting Milenio Imperio Palace Press Minister Felipe Alejandro said it was "petty and attention seeking" in off the cuff remark.

    Politics:

    • Former Foreign Minister & Nationalist firebrand Fernando Torres elected head of the new far right Justos Millennium Party.

    • Senate rumors of Nationalist Right Bloc Party old guard unease with new moderate direction of the palace continue.

    Empire:

    • Cloudy with a 60% chance of showers moving through central Justosia from the west coast. 16 degrees C.

    • Sunny in Vanguardia. 15 degrees C.

    • Partly cloudy in Victoria Island. 17 degrees C.

    MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS
    PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF OSTMARK

    Minister Montez should at least verify his statements when he claims the government of Ostmark is an unelected and illegitimate body and a result of "violence".

    Free and fair elections were held in Ostmark on October 8th, 2018, from which emerged an overwhelming majority of the National-Syndicalist People's Party and the Communist Party of Ostmark that received over 47% of votes and therefor secured a parliamentary majority as prescribed by the electoral law used during the aforementioned election. Such law granted a seats majority bonus to political parties and coalitions that reached at least 40% of the votes, granting not only popular legitimacy but also constitutional legitimacy to the government presided by People's Chancellor Horst Grasser. As for the violence mentioned by Minister Montez, there were no such cases reported during the voting process and, as opposed to Justosia and its schizophrenic political climate, Ostmark never fought a civil war in the process.

    The People's Republic of Ostmark, strong of the will of the people and the popular vote, does not take morality and politics lessons by a pariah state that in recent times threatened global security more than any other country in Europe. Nobody can blame Ostmark and its people for stirring up tensions or being a source of escalation, for the People's Republic of Ostmark has always firmly promoted peace and cooperation amongst peoples and countries with different economic, social and political systems.

    Regardless, the People's Republic of Ostmark will continue to improve its defensive capabilities, in the face of rogue and dysfunctional failed states, ruled by the most incapable and inbred royal families of Europe, such as the so-called "wannabe imperium" of Justosia. It takes more than a crown to make a wise ruler and most of the times, wise rulers don't wear a crown.

    12:30 PM Justosian Time

    The government of the Continental Empire of Justosia maintains its position that the government of Ostmark is illegitimate. This is again because of your current regime coming to power through unelected, violence related means that threw off its past, more moderate governments that allowed Capitalism & free markets. We absolutely doubt the integrity of your elections. If your markets aren't free, it stands to reason your governmental organs wouldn't be either.

    The far left Ostmark regime is a consistent human rights violator visa ve our standards of such. Veiled threats against Justosia will not change our position. Justosia & its territories will not be bullied or threatened. If Ostmark continues its current, frankly rabid trend, it will become a full on piriah of Europe with all the consequences that befit that status. Viva Justosia.

    • Avalon's bid to become a European petrol power have apparently paid off. Two foreign powers, Nedernesië & Petits-Pays have already bought up all mapped shelves. With 25% of future discovered shelves bought by Tyskonia.

    • Stock Market closes off the biggest rally in a decade over aforementioned news. Petrol & natural gas stocks at record highs.

    Imperial Family:

    • The Foreign Ministry has broken, on an international wire, the capital's worst kept secret. His Imperial Highness Prince Carlos Francisco III is bisexual. The reason he forfeited his claim to the Throne of Falcons. This paradigm shift will likely force LGBT rights to the forefront of national debate again as the official acknowledgment marks another historic milestone for a royal house & nation undergoing massive change. The palace has yet to comment.

    • Violence in the form of fist fights & small scale riots have broken out between Socialist & Communist voters vs voters of the Justos Millennium Party commonly known as Millennials. Violence is reported in 5 voting precincts across 3 southern rural districts in the Cortoba region. Imperial elections for the District Governorships have been postponed due to safety concerns even though violence is reported to have been quelled. On orders from the Interior Ministry after consulting with the palace. Updates as we get them.

    Foreign Policy:

    • At the lobby unveiling of a statue of first & former Emperor Carlos Francisco I, Foreign Minister Montez addressed the recent speech made at a Communist summit in Kadikistan. The following is a partial transcript:

    "The cartoonish body of that speech has vindicated our decision to associate with the ODS. It has vindicated its mission. As we now see it's
    unnerving nations that can only aptly be described as enemies of freedom, liberty, and general, true democracy. The unhinged, mind boggingly hypocritical nature of that speech was designed to intimidate nations not apart of their cauldron of tyranny and oppression.

    I, like my Crowned Sovereign, believe strongly in basic human rights. For all peoples of Europe. Not just for those who subscribe to an inherently oppressive, irrational, economic ideology. I believe in freer markets for freer peoples. A line is being drawn. There's a civilized Europe. Then there's a veil, masking a boot over the rest of it. If you can't buy whatever you want. Be whoever you want. Say what you want. Go where you want. Write what you want. Then you're not free. Period. I have a message for that First Minister or however he styles himself. The nations he mentioned are still standing. Freedom of self determination lives. They've won nothing.
    Justosia will continue to labor peacefully for democracy and free markets across Europe."

    • Justosian aid workers & cargo planes arrive in Furlanìe. Equipment said to be surveillance mechanisms & border security tools such as barbed wire.

    • In a shock vote for the history books the Imperial Senate today voted 55-49 to legalize gay marriage across the empire. The Emperatriz has said she will ascend the bill with her signature despite personal opposition. Citing her oath. Vote was thought sure to fail. Nothing can yet explain why 5 key, staunch, nationalist senators flipped.

    • Polls just closed at 9:30 PM Justosian Time. Results from the imperial elections for District Governorships are trickling in. Developing.
