Celebrations of the Republic​

| Today, according to tradition, the Republic Day is celebrated, one of the most important civil events in our country. Its history is linked to the end of the civil war of 1922, 100 years ago which decreed the transition from the Communist system, recently established in place of the Imperial one, to the republican one, in a former Celestial Empire that was still crossed by armed gangs and general dictators.

The first Republic Day was held on January 3, 1923, exactly one year after the historic event, the capture of the city of Uicheon, while in 1928 the first parade of the Armed Forces took place outside the Imperial Palace, in the opposite square. In 1930, January 3 was definitively declared a national holiday.

| Tainlong is at the forefront of defending democracy in the East. We will continue to strengthen our democratic institutions to ensure that no one can be forced to accept the path set by a tyrant not elected by the people, who offers neither freedom nor democracy. We will not act recklessly, but it is certain that the people of Tainlong will never again bow to the ugly force and systematic violence used to terrorize the citizens.
-President of the Republic of Tianlong, the Dragon of Heaven, Zhuan Lingxin. |

Today Tianlong is a thriving and multicultural democracy, far removed from the violent past of armed

gangs and warlords vying for control of the imperial celestial throne. Democracy is not an easy choice, indeed it is the most courageous that a people can undertake, as well as being the most convenient for their children, to whom we should leave this country.

Ostwave is extremely popular in Tianlong

| According to the weekly list of the most downloaded songs in the country, Roadster Sunset, by the duo Ostmarkian Tobias Rutter and Jonas Stauder, has climbed the list to reach the first place with more than 60 million downloads in the last period. By overcoming a local singer with more than double the number of downloads and proving to be capable of penetrating the Tianlong music market, as never before was made by Western music.

With such rapid success from the T&J group, music industry are wondering if there is a chance that other foreign bands could land in the local market. In the meantime, several local record companies are considering offering a contract to the T&J group, offering them the opportunity to organize tours around the land of the celestial dragon.

| WORLD BELT INITIATIVE |
The World Trade Belt initiative, desired and promoted by the Republic of Tianlong, envisages the continuation and enhancement of the previous Silk Road which ended in the New Port city, Republic of Radilana. The new project, which will involve the investment of more than 100 billion Euromark for the development of transport and logistics infrastructures, the creation of new international trade routes from Tianlong and to Tianlong, is already starting to take its first steps, looking for partners and investment areas. Among the candidate countries that ended up under the enlargement lens of the Ministry of Commerce and Economy, there is the Constitutional State of Natal, Republic of Radilana and San Jose. The ministry has made it known that even the participation of a country like Pelasgia would be an appreciated thing to bring stability between the two great nations that share the Basilisk Sea.

The project not only aims to expand the pool of markets to sell Tianlong's industrial production, but it could also serve as a test for the dragon nation, as a kind of soft power. To date, however, Tianlong's foreign policy seems to remain unchanged and provides for a certain indifference to what happens on the other continents. Could this global trade belt initiative be the beginning of the nation's foreign policy change? To this question we can only speculate a possible answer.

| The Stars of the Tianlong Firmament |
The Presidency of the Republic and the Ministry of Digital Development are betting on a 7 billion Euromark project to receive broadband directly from space. It is a public alternative against dependence on private space industry giants present and operating in Tianlong. A new strategic outpost in space. Ministry of Digital Development is ready for a plan to develop satellite internet coverage. It will not be just an extension of the Tianlong "constellation", as Minister Qiao Yuanjun calls it, who can already count on the Red Sun and Lunar Tiger projects, respectively navigation and earth observation systems. It will be an attempt to build a public alternative against dependence on private giants.​

| The opportunity created by the crisis |
The opportunity created by the diplomatic crisis that now seems to afflict the European Forum is an opportunity not to be missed. With the formal abandonment of the great hall where international debates take place by some nations, whose political nature is not the subject of this article, the world has the opportunity to carry out, for the first time after decades, the discussion of Drafting of a Statute of the European Forum.

A hypothetical statute should regulate the rules concerning the vote, such as, for example, if the vote requires unaminity, simple majority or two-thirds of votes, giving an example. The same statute should also express itself on who should stand as guarantor of resolutions, giving them the power to intervene within international law, under the guidance of the blue flag of the European Forum. Having observed all these points, one should ask oneself whether such nations should not form an internal security body, possibly with internal positions by voting or rotation among all members registered in the European Forum.

Only with a statute, drawn up and approved by the European Forum itself, will the international community of nations be able to project itself beyond the games of force of individual nations, intent on instrumentalizing the European forum in their image and likeness, ignoring resolutions that are inconvenient to them and asking the application of those most convenient for them.​
| Dragonfire |

Tianlong's new laser missile defense system has successfully intercepted mortars, rockets and anti-tank missiles in recent tests, the Tianlong Missile Forces press group said. The Tianlong fabricated laser system, known as "Dragonfire", is designed to complement a number of air defense systems, including the more expensive Blue Shield which intercepts rockets.

"It may sound like science fiction, but it is real," Tianlong's Minister of Defense said. "Dragonfire intercepts are silent, invisible and only cost about 5 euromark to use," he added.

| Intervention by the President of the Republic and Parliament about the crisis of Himyars |

We, the parliament of the Republic of Tianlong and the Head of Government, President of the Republic of Tianlong, Zhuan Lingxin, met today to face the aggression of the countries of the Gothic Sea group against the free countries of Himyar, the greatest threat to the world security in recent decades. The war of the Imperialist powers against the nations of Al Magrab has broken the peace in Europe and is causing enormous human suffering and destruction.

We condemn the invasion of Al Magrab with the utmost firmness. We call on the nations involved to stop this war immediately and to withdraw military forces from the territory of Al Magrab. Aggressive forces and their governments must respect the resolution of the European Forum regarding the abolition of the EF Mandates and respect the choice of these nations for independence and self-government.

It noted that such a request will be deliberately ignored by the attackers and their supporters, and presses the view that the unilateral action of the attackers will affect the short-term oil and gas supply capacity of Tianlong itself. We believe that a policy of international neutrality and non-interference, which has been the cornerstone of our foreign policy, must be revised following the change in the international scenario forcefully carried out by hostile countries that daily threaten our trade lines, our sovereignty. , our democratic ideals, the rule of law and freedom.

Overcoming the fragmentation of countries that share our democratic ideals is no longer a political question but has become a necessity for the survival of our sovereignty and independence of nations in the face of the constant growth of enemy power.

Today, the democratic forces must have the courage to admit that we have lost a battle for the Free Himyar, but we must not get discouraged for that. We are tasked with making sure that our values are not defeated by the sheer ugliness of the adversaries when the day of the decisive battle comes.

We recognize the need to promote the realization of an international defensive alliance that has our core values. This alliance will aim to oppose the continued advance of the opposing military forces. The dialogue with the imperialist and anti-democratic powers will have to be revised. Opposing the economic and military blackmail of dictatorships, defending democracy at any cost. Defense of trade and international maritime trade lines, because free trade ensures freedom for nations. Mutual defense is mutual stability.

| Pope John Joseph's speech awakens Tianlong |

You must be registered for see images
Zhuan Lingxin, the first Catholic president, today announced, a day after the historic speech of Pope John Joseph, that he intends to support the bill that puts all marriages on the same level. In Tianlong, until now, the 5 Pronvincie were free to legislate on the subject as there was a regulatory vacuum at the federal level. This lack was always due to a political will of the dragon palace not to interfere in the private lives of the citizens of the five provinces, as the sensitivity often varied from the ethnic group to which the question was asked. Today, a light majority of 53% of citizens nationwide support same-sex marriage.​

Following the announcement of the President, demonstrations of spontaneous support for the completely unexpected decision by the dragon palace have arisen in many cities across the country.

| A few words from the President |

Those we are about to live are uncertain times. A world on the brink of total war, a global threat that involves anyone who walks and breathes on this planet.

And never before has the very existence of our nation been threatened by the advance of enemy forces to our life as we know it. An enemy who has already taken control of the old continent, crushing the bones and dreams of the Zaran people with tanks. They transform once paradisiacal islands into armed bases ready to strike every part of the new continent. They crush free nations in their poisonous grip to deprive them of natural resources and blackmail the world, building monopolies with stolen goods, as if they were pirates of the 21st century.

Now they dare to knock on our doors, with their black nails, they scratch our golden gates.

The Republic of Tianlong do not need and cannot tolerate defiance, deception and offensive threats from any nation, large or small. We have also tolerated the intolerable by the enemy, for the sake of peace. But they saw our search for peace as weakness, and as a scavenger, they were ready to attack us thinking we were about to die.

They have deprived us of the resources we needed, they have deprived us of one of the two trade routes we used, and now they are trying to take control of the last neutral route through the Strait of Propontis. If even the Pelasgian government renounces its netruality, the Republic of Tianlong, the whole world, would lose control of the global merrtime routes, which would be in the hands of the Gothic Pact which keeps its boot on the throat of the old continent.

In a scerio that would see us lose our natural right of navigation and trade, the tianlong republic will be forced to intervene by any means necessary to restore the previous status. Our very existence has been endangered.

May every nation know, big or small, that there is no price we will not pay to guarantee our freedom and survival, of our friends and allies or of nations that ask us for help in the face of adversity. We will not impose our ideals, we will not expand our influence in the governments of our friends and allies, we will support their right to exist and live with the rest of the international world.

| The southern route |
You must be registered for see images
The Republic of Tianlong has announced the strengthening of the #EconomicDevelopmentFoundationforHimyar program which benefits the nation of Azraq. The new funds will serve to strengthen Gabood's port infrastructure, making them capable of hosting a flow of ships 3 times higher than in the past. The southern route was the most used for ships coming from the former territories of Hajr and Al-Magrab, now territories militarily occupied by the Gothic pact in violation of the resolutions of the European Forum.

The southern route, passing through the Himyari Channel, is a safe navigation channel located in international waters, currently there is an operational carrier battle group of tianlong that has visitation rights in the ports of Azraq. The CVBG's mission is to ensure freedom of navigation within the canal, a mission supported by the state of Azraq itself.

The ministry of commerce underlined in a note that the agreements between the empire of tarusa and pelasgia are not a violation of the netrality promoted by the same Pelasgia, but they are sad to learn that pelasgia has decided to favor the tarusan steel to that of tianlong. Also according to the ministry of commerce, the republic of Tianlong has started a program for the strengthening of its merchant fleet, with the aim of doubling it and overcoming that of Pelasgia.​
| The new nuclear thrust |

You must be registered for see images
The energy ministry today announced the start of construction of 15 new nuclear power plants with last generation reactors. Following the crisis of oil and gas, caused by the Gothic pact, the republic considered it necessary to bring its nuclear energy production from 40% of the total to 70% in the next decade. Along with this immense investment in nuclear power, several billions have also been allocated for the construction of new green power plants, such as wind and solar.

The largest solar power plant in the world is scheduled to open next week, producing about 500 MW of power generated by more than 9 million solar panels spread over an area of 25 square kilometers. The plant is located in the north of the country, a desert area of Tianlong, a few tens of kill meters from the regional capital Tole-Buqa.​

**Special Edition Elections**
Once again the citizens of the largest democracy in the world are about to go to the polls to choose their future President of the Republic of Tianlong. These elections have 3 main challengers, who are practically head-to-head in the most recent polls released. Each candidate, together with his own party, has already presented his political program, which will be briefly summarized in this article. All citizens of legal age according to the law in force have the right to vote.

| Zhuan Lingxin, Democratic Progress of Peoples |

Once again supported by its historic Democratic Progress of Peoples party, it comes with an unprecedented public investment program. Although he is strong on the success of the program as a World Belt Initiative, his popularity has started to decline with the introduction of sanctions against the countries of the Gothic bloc and expensive fuel.

Under President Lingxin, the economy initially saw a an exponential growth, but in the last period, due to unfortunate choices in matters of international politics, but not only, they are risking to frustrate the initial economic growth.

The program of the DPP party presented sees the allocation of new sources to strengthen the international programs in force among all the partners nations of the WBI and the strengthening of the defensive capabilities of the CETO. The continuation of the policies already adopted and the strengthening of the weaker ones. Greater fight against white collar crimes and more severe punishments for companies that deliberately damage the republic with their activities.​
| Feng Yuhan, Coalition; National Front for Tianlong, Liberal Party, The People Forward. |

Feng Yuhan, a new face of Tianlong politics, presents himself to challenge the candidate of the Democratic Progress of Peoples party, with a coalition of 3 parties with a centrist-green vocation. Feng Yuhan defines himself as a Buddhist, and therefore a promoter of peace and dialogue. During his tenure as mayor, he managed to mend the dialogue between the local citizens of the metropolis and the rural communities most subject to the filtration of political ideals of the antistate, which controls the eastern part of the peninsula.

Yuhan comes to the national elections with a program that has something unexpected. The candidate recognizes the importance and successes of his opponent, the President, and his successes as the CETO, which also according to Yuhan himself deserves further investment, but does not recognize the president's foreign policy. Feng Yuhan accuses the president of getting carried away and acting on things that have already happened, imposing sanctions that can never overturn the situation, therefore they should be removed.

The removal of the sanctions does not mean that Tianlong recognizes the occupied territories by right to the new oppressors, it simply shows that the tialnlong cannot fight for the peoples who have already stopped fighting.​

You must be registered for see images
| Feng Yuhan,
elected as the 20th President of the Republic of Tianlong with 50.7% of the votes on a total base of about 611 million voters. The coalition wins 309735171 votes against the outgoing president, which stops at 301182328. A very narrow margin for the republic's standards, where 8 million votes correspond to a second category city. [The Republic use classify cities according to their number of residents; Category 0 corresponds to cities with more than 20 million residents, Category 1, 20-10 million inhabitants, under 10 million inhabitants it is in category 2. Editor's note.]

Democratic Progress of Peoples and Outgoing President Zhuan Lingxin have already sent their congratulations to the President-Elect, silencing the rumors that they would see them requesting a recount for alleged illegal voting in some strategic polling stations. At present, according to the Constitution of the Republic, it will be the month of "coexistence", where both presidents have the same powers, effectively transforming the Republic into a Diarchy that recalls the ancient Tiburan republican form of government. Both presidents enjoy the power of veto over the decisions of their colleague, therefore, for the smoothest possible passage of institutional power, the parliament, elected every seven years, unlike the Presidency, every five, acts as mediator in the event of disputes .
Both presidents have assured their intention to collaborate and take a proactive approach to urgent policies during their coexistence in the presidential palace.​
| Shortly after the validation of the elections, and the swearing in as the 20th president of the republic, both presidents signed a legislative decree with the total suspension of the sanctions in force against the countries of Skanskelag, Tarusa and HFE. This decision was motivated by a political will to accept the concrete fact of reality. With the lifting of the sanctions, even the purchase of Gothic Pact oil is again allowed, relieving the pressure and demands on the insufficient productive market of Pelasgia.

Both offices of the Presidents of the Tianlong Republic also attached a note to the decree, commenting that the violation of safety regulations by the Pelasgian oil companies in order to satisfy Tianlong's oil demand is entirely attributable to the oil companies themselves. Which, in order to increase their profit, have deliberately omitted to communicate to the republic itself their inability to satisfy our demand in compliance with local safety laws. These violations are even more serious as they are committed by state-owned companies, as reported by the Propontis Chamber of Industry and Commerce itself.

The Republic of Tianlong is ready to financially support families who are victims of accidents at work caused by voluntary omissions in compliance with the rules on safety at work by the Pelasgian state-owned oil companies. Also ready to provide legal support if port workers and unions wanted to take legal action against oil companies.​

We appreciate the concern of the authorities of the Tianlong Republic for the safety of Pelasgian workers. Nevertheless, violations (which occured by shipping companies and not the Throne's oil-production monopoly) occured on Pelasgian-flagged vessels, and they therefore fall entirely within the purview of the Empire's judicial system. We will continue our joint mediation efforts with the Government of Pelasgia and the Federation of Maritime Workers' Unions to reach an adequate agreement that addresses their concerns.

| Oil crisis has ended |
According to the Minister of Energy, the emergency regarding the supply of oil is to be considered over as the final prices for citizens are falling within the pre-crisis standards. However, the intentions and the will of the country to become more independent from the foreign capacity to blackmail the republic with oil remain in force.
