    This article is a transcript of a television interview held on 10/12/2018 originally aired on SBC Channel 53 at 20:00



    Robert Fuller: Good Evening ladies and gentlemen and welcome to tonight’s edition of Face the Republic. I’m Robert Fuller and tonight I have a special guest who has graciously allowed us to interview him after many years of silence. Our guest is Sander K. Rygaard III, grandson of former President Sander K. Rygaard I. Born in 1963 our Mr. Rygaard is the CEO of Rygaard Heavy Industries a major manufacturer of construction and forestry equipment. Mr. Rygaard welcome to Face the Republic.

    Sander K. Rygaard III: Thank you, Robert, it’s a pleasure to be on your show.

    RF: You and your family are very secretive and tend to stay out of the public sphere.

    SR: Yes, this was the personal philosophy of my father. Ever since my grandfather was assassinated back in 1954 we shied away from the public to avoid the turmoil that his passing brought about. His death has had a great affect on how we live our lives, but I personally felt it was time to come out into the light and finally honor one of these interview requests.

    RF: Unfortunately it was inevitable that your grandfather’s death would be mentioned, you have kept many of his things and you were instrumental in blocking the construction of a Presidential Library of his personal documents. Why not allow the people to have a better look into his Presidency from a more personal side?

    SR: It wasn’t my intention to keep the people in the dark about my grandfather, but my father wanted to maintain the integrity of his personal writings. We are still privately investigating who was behind his death, clearly we know the purpose was to destabilize Sylvania and it seems they were moderately successful. I continue to block any attempts to make these documents public for this very reason, the government had their time with the documents during the official investigation and we can see that they were not at all serious about finding the culprit but rather in deciding who would become the dominant political party. Luckily the courts have remained in agreement with my family about who truly owns these documents.

    RF: You believe the assassins were successful in damaging the country?

    SR: Of course, we can see that his death was the moment where our slide from grace began. Along with the disastrous leadership of the Democratic Socialists that took congressional power in the late 60’s and the Presidency in ‘68. If my grandfather’s legacy had been maintained we would not be in the situation we are in now. Many of the hardworking men and women who kept the traditional values my grandfather championed have been in what seems like a permanent state of demoralization. Voting among the working class has never been lower and the campaign of fear that the Democratic Socialists have engaged in with bands of paid agitators, well, suffice it to say that our political process has been hijacked for quite some time now.

    RF: You are flirting with conspiracy sir, none of what you say has been proven. It is very damning, you are claiming that a major political party has been conspiring to keep people away from the polls.

    SR: When I am ready to present the evidence for such, I will. The media has been too lax in their investigative journalism. There will be big changes coming in the next few months.

    RF: I see, do you not believe this generation and the previous have been right in their abandonment of the traditional ways? I assume you do not subscribe to the more progressive tendencies championed by the youth of our nation.

    SR: No of course not, my wife and I have seven children, all who are successful in their own right. Already I have 5 grandchildren with more on the way. Such big families are a thing of the past. I raised my children to value family, to form meaningful relationships, to be faithful to God and love their country. I am not the only one though, there are still those who live the way a Sylvanian ought to. I believe that they will be the future.

    There is no future in the way people live today, rampant drug use and homosexuality in every aspect of life. The progressive left says they value love and the lives of all and yet promote abortion on an almost industrial scale. They promote weakness and laziness, two years ago the amount of people on welfare programs surpassed the amount of fully employed people in this country. Our military, when not promoting homosexual relationships or holding seminars on preventing rape, cannot find enough able bodied people to train into fighting soldiers. I have not even mentioned the rate of violent crime or the obesity epidemic. Like I said we have fallen far.

    RF: Let’s take a moment for a word from our sponsors. END PART 1.

    • The Professional Air Traffic Controllers Association (PATCA) has delivered its ultimatum to the government, "give in to our demands or prepare for a strike." Negotiations between PATCA and the government fell through this summer as the government rejected PATCA's demands that the government put a hold on the pay decrease that the Democratic Socialist controlled Continental Congress voted in at the beginning of this year. The 10% pay decrease, which is slated to go into effect in 2019, are part of austerity measures designed to make up for deficits in Congress' budget.

    • A Meth lab explosion in the Baldwin community of Round Hill kills 20 in the resulting apartment building fire.

    • Charleroi city officials have started a sweep of expulsions targeted at the city's homeless population, so far 45 have been arrested for vagrancy.

    • The Congressional Election Committee has posted the results of the 2018 presidential election participation study. The study shows only 28% of registered voters bothered to vote. The results for 2014's study was at 30%.

    RF: Before the break you mentioned several things you believe ail the country, perhaps we could speak more on that.

    SR: Sure, I could talk about it all day.

    RF: (Laughs) You do not support the right of women to choose?

    SR: I do not like the way this question is framed. Women can choose to not have a baby very easily, it’s just that they do not wish to restrain themselves from the pleasures of constant sexual relations. What of the right of the baby boy or girl, how can they speak for themselves if their lives are snuffed out before they are born. I champion the rights of the unborn because I do believe that life begins at conception. Life used to be treated as sacred, the woman was also treated as sacred in this country before the so called era of sexual liberation. Men are also to blame, before you accuse me of letting them off the hook, they are also slaves to the pleasures of so called sexual liberation. Men and women are complicit in this mass murder.

    Before we continue let me say that there is a general malaise that has affected this nation, not an economic depression, but a depression of the people morally. Men do not wish to work they would rather stay at home and engage in frivolities, women are desperately attempting to make themselves into men in some misguided attempt and equality. Children are treated with disdain, they are not brought up in stern, yet loving households creating a generation of little entitled tyrants. If this trend continues we will find ourselves in an unrecoverable situation.

    RF: What do you think can help turn around this situation, your company did not publicly support anyone in the last election.

    SR: I don’t use my company to support anybody’s candidacy and I did not support anyone publicly or privately, there is one person who I would have supported had he taken up the candidacy for my grandfather’s party the Federalists, but we were unsuccessful in convincing him to run.

    RF: You are of course talking about Ashley Breckenridge, the congressman from Twin Echo.

    SR: Yes, Ash is a personal friend of mine and an ardent defender of the constitution. I am sure if he had ran we could have interested enough voters to get to the polls and vote. Unfortunately we are stuck with Jillian Snyder for the next four years who seems to be spending more time at parties than she does in her office.

    RF: President Snyder’s presidency has been a historic one to say the least, her approval ratings are high.

    SR: They sure are, but her presidency has been at best uneventful. She’s done nothing to solve our chronic unemployment problems, nor has she even mentioned the current epidemic of drug usage that has greatly affected our population. These drugs come across our borders unchecked and she refuses to acknowledge that it is even a problem. Her solution to the employment problem has been to promise more welfare, which is no doubt popular with the parasitic underclass that welfare has created in this country. I am not against safety nets, but this constant yearly expansion of welfare services has done nothing but bloat government expenditure and we have stolen from just about every sector of government and business to fund it. Our roads are crumbling, our military cannot even purchase ammunition for training, our public sector employees are all taking pay cuts this year and they are quite unhappy about it and yet the media does not report on this.

    RF: Yes, well unfortunately that is all we have time for tonight, Mr. Rygaard thank you again for coming on the show. END PART 2.

    Twin Echo Sheriff's Department Looking for Missing Child
    Emilia Bentley

    Sheriff Norman Daggett stood before the press and local citizens requesting volunteers to search the lakeside forests near Twin Echo for a missing child on Wednesday. Little ten year old Hailey Quincey went missing after a home invasion that occurred in the early hours of the morning at the Norman residence on Northern Avenue in the quiet lakeside Twin Echo suburb of Tall Trees. The Parents of Hailey, Riley and Cassandra Quincey, where shot and beaten during the home invasion. Both parents are in critical condition but doctors at Mercy Hospital are expecting both parents to make a recovery after several surgeries.

    Sheriff Daggett had this to say about the attack and kidnapping: "We have yet to hear anything from the kidnappers about a ransom, we have all officers of the department, Great White Lake Patrol and the Currigan National Park Ranger Service out looking for Hailey as we speak. I'd ask the militia but our genius President cancelled all the militia charters, so I need volunteers, as many volunteers to help in the search. Also If anyone saw anything at the Norman Residence last night or saw anything out of the ordinary while traveling in and out of the area we ask that you please call the Twin Echo Sheriff's Department with the information. The Norman family is offering five thousand silver dollars for any information that leads to the return of Hailey."

    Hailey Quincey's disappearance is just another in a slew of disappearances and kidnappings in western Sylvania over the last ten years and because of the lack of funding for police in this area and the dissolution of the countries militia charters by President Jillian Snyder 4 years ago, effectively making militia formation illegal in the country. Policing in the lesser populated areas in the west relied heavily on volunteer militias working with the sheriff departments of the region's towns and cities. If you have any information that can lead to the return of Hailey Quincey or any missing children the City Magazine will happily forward any information to the appropriate local authorities.

    Congressman Breckenridge shames Congress over Serenierre
    Brian Leslie

    Today the resolution to officially condemn the communist country of Serenierre failed to gather enough votes to pass the Democratic Socialist controlled Continental Congress. The result was met with much dismay from the second largest party the Federalists who erupted into angry shouts and cries over perceived Democratic Socialist approval of the communist Serenien actions in the Serenien-Occitanian war. Congressman Ashley Breckenridge gave the official Federalist party response to the failure of the resolution:

    "The failure of this official condemnation to pass is a dark day for Sylvania, our country used to be a beacon for morality and liberty in this dark world. Now we are a sham nation, who cannot even condemn the evil acts of the communists who continue to march across our world unchecked. The indiscriminate use of chemical weapons on innocent non-combatants and combatants in the war in Occitania should have been enough evidence to convince the Democratic Socialists to vote for the resolution. The Democratic Socialists' silence and their failure to support this measure is deafening indeed, they say they are a center left alternative to the right wing in this country, but I do not believe it, they may not be in league with international communists, but they certainly do not act like it. They are a danger to a free Sylvania and to the free world at large."

    In other news:

    • The search for Hailey Quincey continues in Twin Echo, there has still been no word from the kidnappers and searches of the woods and surrounding area have yet to turn anything up
    • Sylvanian rugby teams struggle in Natal as all team's games end in a tie.
    • PATCA orders another national sickout causing severe delays across the national airspace system. Over 500 flights were cancelled.

    Hello there guest. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!


    We are inspired & heartened to know there are other parties out there who see the Red Menance for what it truly is. Evil, contagion, murderous, thieving. The line between socialist & communist is virtually non existent indeed. The Honorable Congressman Breckenridge is to be congratulated.

    We pray for a swift return of his party to power in Sylvania.

    Engellex Cuts Ties Over Engellpox Response
    Summer Lundgren

    Confusion reigned today in the halls of government as several different responses to the cutting of ties by the Engellexian Republic over the Sylvanian quarantines of flights and ships originating from the Northern Constituent Republic to check for cases of a disease dubbed Engellpox by our Cannie neighbors. While the President has been very clear about her disappointment over this development, other responses have not been in line and have even entered bizarre territory. President Snyder had this to say:

    "As President it is my duty to protect the people of my nation and if that means that the Engellexian Republic wants to cut diplomatic ties with use because we add an hour or two of inconvenience while we check the health of those flying or boating into our ports of entry, then that is just the way its going to be until this crisis has been managed. While the response of our Cannie friends was heavy handed, we do support them in their mission to rid this pox from their lands by all means."

    Others in government were displeased with the entire response. Director of Foreign Affairs Bill Hawthorne resigned over the entire debacle. Here was his statement from early today:

    "I don't understand our response at all, we have been showed no evidence of any outbreak of disease and here we are wasting millions sending our best doctors and scientists from the Office of Communicable Disease Control over to Cantignia on a whim. Meanwhile I am left to deal with the mess of cleaning up after the haphazard policy of the President. In this day and age where communists threaten to gobbble up land at an alarming pace, we find ourselves dividing over perceived slights and jumping into issues head first without at least taking stock of what is happening before our eyes. Do I think its ridiculous that the Engellexian Republic cut ties with us? Yes I do think their response was not sane, however perhaps this would have been tempered had we informed them our plans, asked for some data on the outbreak in Vesper or even evidence that it is even occurring and they aren't just seizing sovereign embassies in some sort of power play. Regardless, President Snyder can deal with the job of repairing our relations without me, I have resigned my position rather than face censure for refusing Presidential orders."

    Rising star Congressman Ashley Breckenridge (F-Twin Echo) had even harsher words:

    "It's a sham I say and President Snyder and her DemSoc buddies, who we all know take their orders from Ivar these days, are playing their part. It's measles for pete's sake, do they not vaccinate for that in Cannieland or is that against the Mormon Jesus' plan? In either case we are not under threat from any fancily named pox. No! This is a plan to divide us all up and get us fighting each other so that the freedom loving nations of Occidentia look the other way while the communists further their goals! The Cussians think so and they have been right about a great many things! No, I do not believe there is a pox at all, the only pox we are under threat from is the pox of communism and I can see about four hundred or so people in here who are infected with it!

    Office of Communicable Disease Control Doctor Killed in Vesper Attack
    Brain Leslie

    Sylvanian government authorities have learned that Doctor Sean Roberts of the Office of Communicable Disease Control was killed in the Engellexic attack on their embassy in Vesper, he is survived by his wife, Vivien Roberts and three children. Crowds of protesters across the country have gathered to march in remembrance of Doctor Roberts and to condemn the callousness of the Engellexic attack on Vesper which has killed an as of yet unknown number of Cantigians and the Engellisc diplomatic mission to Cantignia as well.

    Yet despite the outcry from citizens across the country, the President has yet to give a statement about the attack and the silence from the Executive is deafening. However in the Continental Congress, the opposite has occurred. Congressman Ashley Breckenridge had this to say:

    "This attack in Vesper is an affront to our very way of life, indeed it is an attack on our liberty! If the Engellexic Republics should think it is in the position to waltz into our neck of the woods and attack our neighbor, then I must ask what is next? An attack on Sylvanian shipping? An attack on our cities for some perceived slight? They have already closed their embassy for acknowledging the supposed disease problem in Cantignia. Now one of our own's very blood lies spilled on the streets of Vesper, attempting to do the right thing and help their neighbor, their folk! When will President Snyder and the DemSoc's get through their thick skulls that burying their heads in the sand and pretending that this didn't happen just makes us looks weak and invites actions that Cantignia has just now suffered? The Federalist position on this is very clear, there must be consequences and if there is not? Well... the people of Sylvania must take it into their hands to ask for a general recall of their local DemSoc congressmen and elect strong men and women who will put this great Continental Republic first."

    Funeral Services for Doctor Sean Roberts will be held on Thursday at St. John the Baptist on Currigan Avenue. @Cantignia @Beautancus @Engellex

    A PUBLIC
    Message from the Foreign Office

    Cantignia continues to promote prayer for the diseased and dead from this ongoing conflict, but above all we seek to cease further bloodshed or blood boil that could take the Thaumantic Engellexic Civilization into Civil War. With Charleroi and Vesper isolated from Dulwich, we seek out Welmonton to strike equal ground - not useless neutral ground - for our states to come to sanity and common sense before these disputes escalate further.

    Ten Congressional Seats at Risk of Recall
    Brian Leslie

    Last Monday, Congressman Ashley Breckenridge made an impassioned speech imploring that citizens recall DemSoc congressional members over the lack of outrage over the Engellexic bombing that killed a Doctor with the Office of Communicable Disease Control. Despite the fervor of Breckenridge, the DemSoc party laughed off the suggestion of a recall, however at least ten DemSoc congressional members are not laughing anymore as the protests over the bombing has grown as the body count of the attack grows to an estimated three to five thousand innocents. Recalls were common in the early days of Sylvanian history and there hasn't been a recall of a Continental Congress member in over thirty years. A recall would require at least thirty percent of the congressional member's district to sign a petition asking for a vote to keep or eject the member from the seat. Three of the ten current petition campaigns have already reached the thirty percent requirement.

    No doubt prompted by the surging unpopularity of the DemSoc controlled government, President Jillian Snyder finally gave a brief comment on the embassy bombing:

    "Sylvania is not responsible to react and move at every world event. The attack on the embassy is a Cannie problem, not a Sylvanian one. Congressman Breckenridge's comments are not only inflammatory but also damaging to any possibility of reestablishing relations with Engellex."

    While DemSoc party leaders and members continue to ignore and pretend that Sylvanians are not unhappy about the attack, the Federalists have seized on this moment to stir a population that has, for the last fifteen years, been largely apathetic about local and world politics. Congressman Breckenridge was quick with the Federalist party response to the President's lackluster comments:

    "It is truly pathetic that President Snyder thinks she can get away with those comments. This is not some attack that has happened halfway across the world in some backwater country, this is in our backyard! Thousands of people, who all share a common origin, have been murdered in cold blood by their mother country and though we have all been separated for many years now, are we not related by blood? Clearly our blood relations no longer matter as our cultures are so far apart now that if we did not teach our children of our origins, they would not be able to see that we were once all one people."

    Breckenridge's comments continue to resonate with Sylvanians across the country, especially with those in the military or seeking to join. The Continental Army and Continental Marines have seen an increase in men showing up to join at recruitment center's across the country, both the Continental Navy and Continental Air Force have had to turn potential recruits away at come centers in the passing days since the attack. The Department of Defense has declined to comment.

    • PATCA (the Professional Air Traffic Controller Association) Has issued its final warning as Continental Congress members prepare to break for the holiday season over the pay decrease that was passed for the 2019 budget. Union President Gerald Shanks gave a comment on the matter. "Some of our controllers are going to see a five thousand dollar cut to their annual salaries. This is just unacceptable treatment of the hardworking men and women who keep the airways in Sylvania and across the North Thumantic and North Implarian safe for air travel. If the government does not return to the negotiating table to talk about more favorable terms then PATCA will have no choice but to declare a strike that will undoubtedly cripple air travel for much of Westernesse." Government labor relations continues to avoid comment at this time.
    • The Recall of ten DemSoc Continental Congress over the weak response to the Vesper bombing is now official. The thirty percent needed for the ten separate petitions was easily gained and now election officials will be tasked with organizing elections that could find all ten seats as lost to the DemSoc party and gained by Federalist challengers. The elections will be held on January 8th. The Federalists have yet to name the challengers but have stated that they are already building the campaigns and will be prepared to announce them on December 10th. The seats that have been recalled are from the western state of Somerset's Daphne Newell (D-So 10th), Mike Pritchard (D-So 21st) Kyle McNamara (D-So 11th), Cory Haraldsen (D-So 15th). Also from the Southwest state of Laurel's Kirk Bloxam (D-La 1st), Shelby Rose (D-La 13th), Valerie Street (D-La 14th), Gunnar Hardwick (D-La 16th), Angela Coke (D-La 18th) and Tony Branson (D-La 2nd).
    • University of Baldwin Medical Centers has found, after collecting life expectancy data, that the average life expectancy of adult males in Sylvania has dropped from 80.2 to 79.5 due to increased drug overdoses and suicides. With joblessness and the rampant abuse of the welfare system, many men are out of work and turning to drugs or outright killing themselves. UBMC has issued a call to medical professionals and the government to find a way to deal with the depression crisis that Sylvanian men have found themselves in.

    PATCA strike grinds Sylvanian travel to a halt. Charleroi local transportation union strikes in solidarity.
    Summer Lundgren

    The worst case scenario for this season's holiday travel has come true as the Continental Congress breaks for the rest of the year. Over ninety percent of air travel has been canceled today as air traffic controllers across the country declare a strike over the pay cuts they have received in the 2019 federal budget. In solidarity with the controllers, the Charleroi Teamsters local 218 has also declared a strike, stopping all bus and metro travel across the city causing severe traffic delays, effectively paralyzing the city. President Jillian Snyder, whose party is already facing a recall battle over the engellpox crisis is no facing an even larger crisis as people become stranded at airports and find they cannot travel across the country. International travel is still possible but also limited in scope as the military is activated to fill the vacant control towers, approaches and Air Route Traffic Control Centers. While incoming international flights will be able to land, many foreign travelers will find themselves stranded as Sylvanian air carriers and foreign air carriers alike have had to cancel flights out of the country due to overloaded military replacement controllers.

    Travis Bloom, President of the Air Carrier Advocacy Organization (ACAO) has urged Speaker of the Continental Congress, Joe Jepsen (D-CL-2oth), to recall congress and work to end the strike or else face significant economic damage to the country and a very angry public already enraged and ready to order recall elections at a whim. Meanwhile airports are urging travelers to stay home. the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) is also urging general aviation pilots to stay out of the sky as only emergency control services can be provided at this time. The Department of Transportation has also issued a warning to people traveling by car to expect very long traffic jams and to pack emergency supplies should travelers find themselves stuck in what could be the worst traffic jams the country's highways has ever seen.

    • PATCA has ended the strike after the Continental Congress convened in an emergency session to remove the pay cuts, restoring controller pay to its 2018 level. The strike crippled the country causing over 5 million holiday travelers to be held up and caused severe congestion across all of Sylvania's interstate parkways. The financial cost to the country has yet to be revealed.

    • Travel woes for the country have not let up as the Nor'easter, winter storm Baxter, strikes south central Sylvania and drops over thirty inches of snow on Twin Echo. It is estimated that over 200,000 thousand people are without power. The storm is causing similar damage in Beautancus, many in the Middle and Upper Piedmont region are without power. The states of Laurel, and Somerset have declared states of emergency as the leading edge of the storm arrives over south east central Sylvania. In addition to several states declaring states of emergency ahead of the storm the Continental Congress passed an emergency spending bill to bolster state emergency funds across the country. The Continental Army has been deployed to assist emergency personnel in the clearance of roadways and rescue operations. The government has also declared that it will also extend a hand to Beautancus to assist in snow removal.

    I speak on behalf of my sovereign king. He conveys his regret potential friendship between our nations has been soured by outside influences that shouldn't pertain. On his authority I extend an olive branch. Let the keg become less powdered. Let us re-establish formal diplomatic relations. I request this humbly.

    Greetings Minister Torres, we are not aware of any souring of relations between Justosia and Sylvania, colored by outside influences or even inside influences. We do welcome continued relations between our two nations and do not hold ill will, though we may find ourselves sometimes baffled by Justosian diplomatic strategy with other nations. Friendship between us is not an impossibility though we are a wary people who will not be rushed into alliances and diplomatic deals.

    Two wary nations could very well come to trust each other greatly. Justosia is honoured to continue relations with your fiercely independent state.

    • President Jillian Snyder spoke today on the developments in the Long and Hamar Seas as Aurarian, Pelasgian fleets move to counter Justosian ship deployments to the Occitanian colony of Brecosta: "I urge all parties involved to use caution, the Long and Hamar Sea are vital to shipping worldwide and these deployments will only serve to destabilize the region. This is not to mention the fragile balance that exists within Gallo-Germania, these deployments can only make the region even more unstable than it already is. We strongly suggest that the parties involved come to the table instead of staring each other down across the ocean. We offer a neutral place in Charleroi to negotiate, let this foolish posturing end quickly and peacefully.
    • Ten Dem Soc congress members will find themselves in a battle for their seats in congress on Tuesday. Voters will head to the polls at seven in the morning to decide to replace these ousted members: Somerset's Daphne Newell (D-So 10th), Mike Pritchard (D-So 21st) Kyle McNamara (D-So 11th), Cory Haraldsen (D-So 15th). Also from the Southwest state of Laurel's Kirk Bloxam (D-La 1st), Shelby Rose (D-La 13th), Valerie Street (D-La 14th), Gunnar Hardwick (D-La 16th), Angela Coke (D-La 18th) and Tony Branson (D-La 2nd). All ten were forced to resign and their seats have remained empty since December 7th. Generic polling has shown that the Federalists lead by two points and in the 18th district of Laurel, there will be no Dem Soc challenger. Election results will be posted in the Wednesday magazine.

    Message from the Foreign Office

    With elections also drawing near for Cannies in the North, we duly hope for a peaceful and fair electoral example from Sylvania in the South this week. No matter the result, this Commission Office intends to reach out and work with new or remaining partners from the Continental Republic to tackle the economic and security problems that persist for our states to solve.

    May Goodwill Prevail,

    High society gossip and other loosely juicy news.

    Justosian Prince A Papist?
    By Frida Wolf

    The world of the religious is a strange place and a constant provider for entertainment to atheist and religious alike here in Sylvania, but where we all here, whether protestant, atheist, Kinist and Nativist and the occasional catholic, live in relative harmony. The same cannot be said in other countries where people of other religions are looked down on. Be it no surprise then that in fiercely protestant Justosia, the existence of a catholic is looked down upon, perhaps sometimes violently. In a place where the Justosian king is considered just one step down from the protestant God himself, the possibility that a catholic lurks within his bloodlines is a peace of juicy news that we here at Baldwin Brevities cannot look past.

    Our readers know how passionate we are about getting the scoop on local and international celebrities and in the case of Prince Julian Francisco-Francois II, we spared no expense! We have in our possession a photo that proves that Prince Julian has papist tendencies. Why else would he be in Elben, a place fiercely loyal to the Pope. While one could argue that Prince Julian just wanted to enjoy the scenic beauty, the modest but beautiful women and the chance to ski in some of the best resorts on our planet. Prince Julian had other ideas, walking into Corpus Christi Cathedral in Eschenbach. Was he there to take confession? This photo certainly seems to suggest it as it was taken during a scheduled confession time that the Corpus Chrisiti Cathedral holds regularly. What could this news mean for Justosia? Does their papist prince have true loyalty to the Justosian crown? What will devout protestant Justosians think of their traitor prince? Find out as we do what we do best, bring you the world's juiciest news!
