ALOIA CONGRATULATES EURUSSIA


Secretary Eriksen

SAN FRANCISCO, San Francisco, Aloia == Aloia Secretary for the Environment Marshall Eriksen congratulated Eurussia on finally meeting international standards for green energy. Aloia and a number of other nations have long had methods of capturing renewable energy in place, and Eriksen expressed relief that Great Eurussia has finally gotten on the green bandwagon. He also expressed confusion over the Eurussian media's comment that their nation has become an "energy superpower" and a "good example to all the countries of the world where most rely on polluting sources of energy" when most developed nations already have large fields of solar panels and wind turbines in place to generate energy.

CHANCELLORY RACE HEATS UP

With five months left until the next Chancellor of the entire United Kingdom is elected, the race is becoming more intense. An underdog candidate from the Catham Islands has recently joined the race.

Aleksandar Vučić: Cathamian candidate from the local CIRP (Catham Islands Republican Party), aged 68, seeks to increase individual freedoms, reduce government controls and regulations over the UK's economy, expand the military, and reduce the people's reliance upon government. He also supports strong family values and giving parents the freedom to raise their children without government interference. He wants to act toward reducing abortion rates and sexual activity among adolescents. Supports the re invigoration of Serbian identity and their role in the new United Kingdom. Believes that the members sates of the United Kingdom should be given more autonomy over domestic issues, while encouraging common dialogue and understanding of the different cultures making up the Kingdom. Encourages movement of citizens within the United Kingdom while also strengthening immigration laws directed towards external nations.

While speculators believe that Mr. Vučić will not be receiving many votes from outside the Catham Islands, he stands for several ideals that many Marqutiens stand for.

EURUSSIA EXPANDS DNA DATABASE CENTER
Chancellor Vladimir Putin announced that with the impending passage of a United Eurussia Party backed bill at the Eurussian Parliament about the controversial DNA Sampling, the government, through the Ministry of Justice, will be allocating funds to the Eurussian DNA Database Center to upgrade its system and technological capability as it will soon collecting DNA samples to all the 2.5 billion Eurussian citizens at home and abroad from its current level of 50 million samples gathered from persons involved in criminal cases.
Despite criticism from the Conservative Party and human rights advocates, Chancellor Putin defended the proposed law as it will surely boost all criminal investigations in all levels of authority in every corner of the country assuring the privacy of all DNA data through a strict mechanism on accessing information from the Eurussian DNA Database Center.

NZ Commissions New Eco Friendly Dams


The Flagship Run of the River Dam, "Savage Dam".


NZ has officially commissioned it's new environmentally friendly hydroelectric dam scheme. The New "Run-of-the-river" power stations are the brainchild of a group of aspiring New Zealand environmental scientists from Manukau Institute of Technology, and was further refined by top researchers at the Department of Electricity in conjunction with the Ministry of Conservation. Though the dams are not extraordinary in terms of power generation, their environmental damage is near to none. The brilliant thing with Run-of-the-river hydroelectric power stations (dams) is that there is absolutely no need to flood any of the land, it simply works on the existing river flow. The flagship dam of this nature, "Savage Dam", is the most powerful, and is named after the great NZ Prime Minister Michael Joseph Savage.

The Dams
Savage Dam:


Output = 2,620 MW
Howick Dam:


Output = 2,160 MW
Jefferson Dam:


Output = 1,903 MW
Clarke Dam:


Output = 1,779 MW
La Grande Dam:


Output = 1,436 MW
Forest Hill Dam:

Output = 1,340 MW
Alpine Dam:

Output = 1,220 MW
Shepard Dam:


Output = 1,145 MW
Milford Dam:


Output = 1,092 MW
Hauraki Dam:


Output = 177 MW


Together the new environmentally friendly dams have a combined peak output of 14,812 MW. This is still around 10,000 MW lower than the Three Gorges Dam (Dromoda) which currently holds the position as largest Hydroelectic powerplant in the world. However, these environmentally friendly dams are only intended to aid the Hydrogen Fusion Plants in handling the power load. Currently there are 4 Hydrogen Fusion Plants, each generating a whopping 18,712 MW. Together these dams alongside the 4 Hydrogen Fusion Plants, sustain the majority of NZ's notoriously high power consumption, per capita NZ consumes the most electricity, the third most water, and the most petroleum (We also have the most cars per capita).

EURUSSIA ACTIVATES FIRST NUCLEAR PLANT
Despite being rumored to have the world's largest stockpiles of nuclear weapons for decades, the Eurussian Empire, which just recently completed its first ever nuclear power plant, the Irkutsk Nuclear Power Plant, is considered to be a late comer to nuclear energy development due to being a controversial topic in the country and even any proposal on its development is blocked by the previously ruling Conservative Party. However, when the United Eurussia Party of the socialist liberals came to power, its leader, Vladimir Putin, vowed to pursue such program to utilize the nation's vast uranium reserves and bring the country as one of the world's top producer of clean energy and decrease Eurussia's reliance on conventional sources such as coal and natural gas, which the country also have massive reserves, that are considered to be a huge source of air pollution in the country.
The Irkutsk Nuclear Power Plant, expected to be online next year, was inaugurated by Her Imperial Majesty, Empress Elizabeth II, finally dispersing rumors for years that the Eurussian monarch is personally opposed to nuclear energy. The massive multi-billion nuclear station was carefully constructed for eight years with 9 reactors capable of producing almost 9,000 megawatts making it the world's largest nuclear generating station to date.
The Eurussian Power Corporation, the state owned power utility monopoly, also announced that the construction of more nuclear power plants will start next year as Eurussia continue to embark on a massive energy development program tapping its abundant natural resources to meet the demands of its continuous economic growth. Initially, there are four nuclear generation stations already lined up and ready for construction; the Smolensk Nuclear Power Plant expected to have an installed capacity of 7,000 megawatts through its 6 reactors; the Kamchatka Nuclear Power Plant expected to have an installed capacity of 6,000 megawatts through its 4 reactors; the Yakutsk Nuclear Power Plant expected to have an installed capacity of 5,000 megawatts through its planned 3 reactors; and the Lorraine Nuclear Power Plant, the only nuclear power plant which is planned to be built on mainland Eurussia expected to have an installed capacity of 8,000 megawatts through its 8 reactors. These nuclear generating stations are planned to use different technologies on their reactors.

Low Republic passes controversial laws targeting crime, safety, and pollution



The House of Low has passed several laws aimed to limit crime, improve safety, and curb pollution. This fresh round of laws contains the most ambitious policies ever taken in the Low Republic to reduce crime and pollution on a local level. The Low Republic was recently revealed to have the second highest crime rate in the World Alliance.

Gun laws, already strict in Greater Yellasia, have been further tightened in the Low Republic, with a strict gun-tracking system to be put in place. The Low Police Force have also been given greater power regarding surveillance.

More money is being put into public transportation than ever before. The bus system is being completely overhauled and a restrictions to automobile use have been put in place in some cities such as Low City, where fees are being charged for automobile use in some areas and new policies encouraging carpooling are now in place.

These moves have resulted in raging debate. Some support the measures, arguing that the guidelines set in the City of Yell are not enough; others vehemently oppose them, seeing them as a violation of their rights and against the principles of the Low Republic. There are still lingering effects of the economic crisis, and many Lows fear the measures will discourage economic growth.

Protesters are forming a petition to challenge the laws in the House of Assembly.

EURUSSIA DECLARES NEW DUCHIES
The Imperial Household Agency announced that Her Imperial Majesty, Empress Elizabeth II, has issued an imperial decree incorporating the three newly occupied territories of the Eurussian Empire as individual duchies, respectively. These are the Duchy of Orenburg, located south of Antanares, the Duchy of Ossetia, located south of Eurasia, and the Duchy of Primorsky, located south of Newellia. These addition brings the total number of Eurussian political subdivisions to 61 Duchies which are equivalent to provinces of other countries.
The IHA has also announced the newly appointed Dukes of the three duchies who will be based on the respective designated seat of governments, namely, the City of Stuttgart in Orenburg, the City of Lubeck in Ossetia, and the City of Helsinki in Primorsky. These viceroys of the Empress will govern these duchies absolutely under an interim period until their respective ducal parliaments are in place on the next scheduled elections.
The IHA also revealed the schedule of the visit of the Eurussian Empress to her new duchies.

NEWS IN ANTANARES



PARNASSUS ENERGETIC ANNOUNCE THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE CAPE WOLF FUSION POWER PLANT

Parnassus Energetic, one of the leader in the energy sector of Antanares, announced in a press in the morning the completion of the second fusion power plant of the nations in the region of Cape Wolf, not far from the main city. The power plant, the second in all Antanares, would provide to the energetic requirements of the entire East Coast. In Antanares, more than the two fusion power plants, are present Wind Station and Solar Plants. After the construction of this last fusion plant, the Bruma had announced the closing of the last Nuclear-Fission power near Antanares. The fusion power plant, the most modern in all the World Alliance and the biggest, would provide for more than 16,000 Megawatts with two of four reactors activated

"One of our most important goal is achieve. With the construction of the Fusion Plant near Cape Wolf we can provide, totally, to our energetic requirements and also we can sell more energy than in the past" said the Councilor for the Infrastructure, Baron Nikolai Esperanto "It's a very important achieve for us and we are glad for it"

END OF THE VOICES ABOUT THE ASSIS?


After the arrest of two members of the "Democratic Movement", the famous news announced in the last week from the movement itself are not arrived. Nobody, from the web, had release any news about the last black-ops of the secret service of Antanares. It's possible, according to the voices from the blog of the movement, that the two men under arrest are the responsible of the hacker attack to the ASSIS. The ASSIS, hit by the scandal, had not stopped any of its operations, considered vitals for the safe and the future of Antanares. The secret service, in fact, is deployed in the most critics and important zone of the World Alliance to support the main work of the government and of the allied of Antanares.

"Where are the democratic nations that in the past days launched their attack against the dictatorship?" said Eveleine Alexandersberg, wife of Martin Alexandersberg, one of the men under arrest "Operators of the AFS and policemen arrived in my house in the middle of night, without any kind of license and took away from me my lover! They must be punished for what they did to me, to the family of other members of the movement, to the blind people of Antanares"

The situation is not really clear about the arrest. The men are accused of terrorism, a crime punished with the death penalty in Antanares and that also allows the Police and the Antanares Federal Service, the AFS, to intervene advance, without any legal license. It's not the first case where the AFS used its special powers and the few left-wing members of the Bruma, much time, asked for a response from the leaders of the organisation that, most of the times, operated like a black-ops corp.

Inside Look: What is going on inside the Low Republic?



The Low Republic- the second largest constituent country of the United Kingdom of Greater Yellasia- is facing yet another round of instability. Crime, poor health, and poor environmental conditions continue to be challenging issues, and today the House of Low passed another controversial law, this one placing regulations on soda companies and guidelines for fast-food restaurants. The Low Republic has the highest crime rate in the World Alliance, sparking new reforms and ever-increasing instability accompanied by political deadlock.

So why is this happening? The Low Nation was poor and underdeveloped for most of its history. Industrialism was introduced in small doses in the late 19th-century, taking off in full force in the early 20th century. During the oil boom of the 1980s that led to business mogul Dr. Low's usurpation of power, the nation became moderately wealthy, and some positive reforms were introduced, such as the granting of women's suffrage in 1991. At the same time, class inequalities developed, the environment dealt great damage, corruption persisted, and organised crime flourished.

The unification with Yellasia brought significant improvements to the Low Republic's political system and ended much of the human right's abuses that were occurring. Wealth was slightly increased and the wealth gap was narrowed. But it has not been enough. Millions of Lows have emigrated, leaving the Republic a weakened version of what it once was. Some neighbourhoods are entirely abandoned, flanked by decaying houses. Crime  and gang violence decreased initially, but has now reached an all-time high.

Absolute poverty is non-existent in the Low Republic, and Yellasia's introduction of welfare programmes and improved homeless shelters has improved living conditions in its large lower-class, but these expensive efforts have not been enough. A tour of Low City symbolises the situation that plagues the Republic. Gleaming skyscrapers and well-to-do gated communities exist side-by-side with housing projects and homeless shelters. This class-divide is tied to the growing crime issue.

This brings us to today- the day that the devolved Low government has taken drastic measures to end these problems. The cost however, is renewed political instability. The right-wing 'Low Coalition' (named after the sovereign state proceeding the First Low Republic)- consisting of the Low National Party, local Conservative Party members, and several independents compete with the left-wing coalition- the Low Progress Party and local Socialist Party members. Extremist groups, with the backing of the Low Independence Party, have even announced a plan to free Dr. Low from house arrest and restore his rule. The path to stability will not be an easy one.

Picture Taken Inside Reactor 1



The Social Democracy of New-Zealand has taken another leap forward in it's efforts to reduce it's electricity deficit and perhaps one day achieve a healthy surplus. This morning Genesis energy announced in a press conference that it has been all go by government Health and Safety inspectors for it's newly build Hydrogen Fusion power station, code named "Gamma". The Gamma complex will become the world's largest fusion plant when it is started up for the first time tomorrow morning. The complex will consist of 6 "Goliath Class" fusion reactors each pounding out 16,000 MW. Together the complex could generate a ridiculously large 96,000 MW. This is enough to sustain just under 1/4 of New-Zealand's entire electricity consumption and indefinitely place the country is an enviably electricity surplus. However, the Genesis Energy spokesperson did state that the only four reactors will be active for now, and none of them will be working at full capacity due to the the incredible heat generation, which he claimed would "Be not financially viable, especially since we have spare reactors". Basically what he means is that running 4 at moderate intensity works out cheaper than running 2 at high intensity, due to the 2 creating more heat. He did however state that due to the growing electricity demand in New-Zealand, the remaining two reactors will probably be activated by the end of the decade.

JOSEPH CHARPENTIER RE-ELECTED

Joseph Charpentier, Marquette's Chancellor



It has been a long race, and over a year and a half of intense debating between the United Kingdom's political parties, but the results are in, and Marquetiens have re-elected Joseph Charpentier as chancellor. Charpentier will serve as the UK's leader for another six years.

Charpentier received 36 Electoral Votes, thus meeting the simple requirement that a candidate receive the most votes to win. In second place, however, was the underdog, Aleksandar Vučić, whom few political enthusiasts expected to get far.

This year, Parliamentary elections for the House of Statutes and the Senate also took place. The results of the House of Statutes are as follows:



Old Renéean Guards (Purple) - 68
Pink Rose Party (Pink) - 18
Green Conservative Party (Light Green) - 3
Nationalist Party (Grey) - 8
Association of Consumers and Taxpayers (Light Blue) - 7
Catham Islands Republican Party (Yellow) - 6
Labor Party (Blue) - 3
Union for a Christian Marquette (Dark Green) - 7

The Old Renéean Guards have also maintained their majority in the Senate:



Old Renéean Guards (Purple) - 64 Seats
Pink Rose Party (Pink) - 15
Green Conservative Party (Green) - 9
Nationalist Party (Grey) - 5
Association of Consumers and Taxpayers (Light Blue) - 18
Catham Islands Republican Party (Yellow) - 5
Labor Party (Blue) - 4

RHODES ELECTED CHANCELLOR OF IMPERIAL UNION


Caroline Wendy Rhodes, Chancellor of the Imperial Union of Aloia, Genolia, and Sokolia

SAN FRANCISCO, San Francisco, Aloia == After a long campaign against her Blue Party opponent, Caroline Rhodes has been elected Chancellor of the Imperial Union of Aloia, Genolia, and Sokolia. Caroline Rhodes is a former governor of the state of Alexandria and a cousin of Hadrian Rhodes, former Governor General of the Federation of Aloia. She is also a member of the influential Rhodes family who have had at least one member in the Aloian legislature for every term since 1946. The Rhodes family also heads Rhodes United Industries, one of the largest companies in Aloia, and they have been called Aloia's Second Royal Family.


Jeanne Aurelie Beauchene, former Chancellor of the Imperial Union of Aloia, Genolia, and Sokolia.

Chancellor Rhodes will be taking over from Jeanne Beauchene, who served as the first Chancellor of the Imperial Union for 12 years since the beginning of the Imperial Union following the Unification, being re-elected 3 times. Beauchene took over from Georgia Osterreich, who served as the last Governor General of the Federation of Aloia, preceded by Hadrian Rhodes. Chancellor Rhodes was originally a teacher in the City of Alexandria, later representing the city in the state senate, before becoming governor of the State of Alexandria. After being governor of Alexandria, she served as the Aloian ambassador to Dromoda for a time before returning to the IU to run for Chancellor.

Her intentions were to welcome new Senators who were elected in the recent primary election and introduce a bill that will establish a student exchange program with one of Aloia's allies, Marquette of Pacific. The bill will allow students from Marquette to study in Aloia, and Aloian students to study in Marquette.


The interior of the Imperial Senate hall.

The Imperial Senate is the lower house of the IU Congress and is based on population. For example, more populous states like Alexandria and Arkania have more representatives while less populous states like Upper Sokolia and Madra have only a couple representatives. The bill will have to pass through the Senate to the High Council. The High Council is made up of one representative from each state and is the upper house of Congress. The bill has a lot of support from both of Aloia's major parties, the Green Party and Blue Party, and the moderately-successful White Party. The bill is expected to fly through both houses of Congress.

EURUSSIA LAUNCHES HOSPITAL SHIP
Eurussia, as a superpower with its aim to provide a more robust humanitarian response anywhere in the world, has launched its first ever dedicated hospital ship under the Imperial Navy. Being a converted supertanker, it is considered the largest of its kind with a minimum of 1,000 patient capacity and state of the art health equipment and facilities. The hospital ship, as a recognized humanitarian vessel, is expected not carry any offensive weapons but with defensive weapons only, however, the Defense Ministry did not confirm such.
Her Imperial Majesty, Empress Elizabeth II, being the Commander-in-Chief of the Imperial Armed Forces, personally attended the launching of the nation's first dedicated hospital ship to be operated by the Imperial Navy at the Port of Dusseldorf in the Duchy of Versailles. The Imperial Navy said that 9 more hospital ships are planned to be built and will surely boost the nation's humanitarian missions domestically and in every corner of the world.

Election Time in New Paristan

Post  New Paristan on Sun Nov 24, 2013 2:12 am

Dispatch from the Jospin Chronicle, a state-run news service

Citizens of New Paristan are lining up to cast votes in the first free election since the disastrous civil war that tore our country apart. Interim Administrator Jean Marc Valjean says he is "confident" that the election will "run smoothly and produce a fair result."

Early polls conducted by this news service show Valjean's party, the Free Republicans, garnering a staggering 65% of the vote, a strong rebuke to the proletarian anarchists who many see as the cause of the recent civil war. In campaign speeches, Valjean has proclaimed that "a free country needs a free market," and has vowed to strip away "unnecessary and onerous labor regulations burdening the Paristani entrepreneur."

In addition to open markets, Valjean's interim administration has been working to build up New Paristan's military capability, which the proletarian anarchists had previously decimated. "We must protect our homeland from foreign interference," said Valjean, "and so my administration will be looking for any opportunity to boost our military readiness."

Dispatch from the Resistance, an illegal underground publication of the Free Workers of New Paristan

The sham elections being conducted by Valjean and his cronies are rigged like no election has ever been rigged before. Valjean has outlawed dissenting media outlets, has put in place voting restrictions that mean, effectively, that no Free Worker will be able to vote, and has carried out a campaign of intimidation and fear to ensure victory for the capitalists.

The Free Workers won't stand idly by and watch this happen. When the Free Republicans win this election against the inept Social Democratic opposition party, which was itself founded by Valjean's cronies to create the illusion of a real election, the Free Workers will make sure the Paristani people know what really happened.

We are the Free Workers. We are legion. Expect us.

Landsraad bypasses the Diet


Tarajan City.
The days of the true political crisis storming over New Tarajan seem to have passed out, however the balance of power in the political arena remains extremely fragile, as demonstrated by the recent events in the Royal Diet.
The decision of the new Rumaki government to propose a law to reform the Tarajani healthcare system encountered serious obstacles in the Royal Diet, due to the strong opposition of the "right-wing" parties, the Royal Tarajan Party and the White Party, which are firmly against the new social-democratic attituted of the Royal Council (even if they looked with favour to the appointment of Jan Van Egeland-Sondenburg, a member of the TSDP, as Minister for Foreign Affairs).
While the Royal Council, and the TSDP above all, tried with every mean to remove the obstacles to a clean approval by the Diet, claiming the "disastrous conditions of our healthcare system, which saw only continous budget-cuts and no improvements since years" (these are the words used by Wali Nasim Shatrevar, Minister of Health and Welfare, during his speech), the R.T.P. and the Whites criticize the unusefulness of the law, and the heavy problems it could create to the national budget.



To resolve the political impasse, the Landsraad finally decided to intervene.
The Tarajani constitutional laws (represented by the Declaration of Regeneration issued by King Conrad III almost seventy years ago) allow the Landsraad to literally "bypass" the Diet in case of impasse in the legislation process.
For obvious reasons, it is not a common solution, due also to the reticence of the Lords of the Landsraad to directly interfere in the fights between the parties, thus altering the political balance of the Kingdom.
However, the call of Prime Minister Rumaki seems to have done its effect, and the Lord President of the Landsraad, Prince Maximilian Van Sondenburg, announced today that "the Landsraad agreed in taking directly under its attention and supervision the Healthcare Law proposed by the Royal Council", thus ousting the Diet from the process.
Actually, the main concern now is to see if this intervention will provoke further political fight inside the Diet, creating a spiral where the Landsraad will find itself involved in an attempt to avoid a total breakdown of the legislation processes, or if the two wings of the Tarajani political world will find again a way to the compromise, possibly not undermining the position of the Prime Minister, and thus once again the choice of King Friederick Wilhelm to follow a liberal/social-democrat friendly line.

NZ Slips Back into A Trade Deficit?

Pre-Made Chevrolet SS (Holden Commodores) arrive at New Tarajan

NZ Has slipped back into a trade deficit after it's two decades of consistent surplus' following the point in NZ history deemed the "Holden Boom". Following the creating of the Holden VE range, the company drove NZ's economy into a new era and began the upward spiral that now see's it claim the pole position as the World's Largest Automobile Manufacturer, whilst the Holden Corporation (Holden, Chevrolet, Holden Heavy Industries etc.) recently claimed the position as the World's Largest Single Entity Company. The mass of exports from Holden across the globe was the driving force, no pun intended, that tipped the scales and placed The Social Democracy as one of the privileged few nations running a trade surplus. However in recent months, since Holden's Global Subsidiary Scheme came into effect, the country has fallen back into deficit even though it is exporting more, due to Holden getting a sales boost from the GSS, and importing the same amount. The answer lies with the fact that most of Holden NZ's exports go to it's subsidiaries, which then modify and tailer the final touchup's to the Base/Skeleton model that was sent by Holden NZ (These final touch ups are done in Assembly plant's in the nation of the Subsidiary). As a result of this, Holden "exports" have technically dropped, as you can't sell to yourself. Regardless of the fact that the nation is in reality running a trade surplus, for all factual purposes the Social Democracy is technically in a trade deficit. 


Current Holden Corporation Subsidiaries

  1. Vauxhall Motors - Based in Aloia (1 Plant) [5,029 Employees]
  2. Chevrolet Motors - Based in New Tarajan (2 Plants) [7,336  Employees]
  3. Opel Motors - Based in Europe and Asia (1 Plant) [3,512 Employees]
  4. Holden Heavy Industries - Based in New-Zealand (2 Plants/Docks) [4,234 Employees]
  5. Holden Motors - Based in New-Zealand (8 Plants) [66,056 Employees]
  6. Holden Special Vehicles - Based in The New-Zealand Colonies (1 Plant) [934 Employees]
  7. Walkinshaw Performance - Based in New-Zealand (1 Plant) [254 Employees]


Holden Subsidiaries to Come (Including Employee and Plant Projections)

  1. Cadillac Motors (2 Plants) [6,000 Employees]
  2. Buick (1 Plant) [2,000 Employees]

NZ Economy Peaking?
Fears arise of a peaking NZ Economy as the "Holden Boom" comes to an end. In a somber report by The Reserve Bank of New-Zealand (RBNZ), the governor (Head of the RBNZ) expressed his concerns that the Holden boom is coming to a dignified end. His reasoning being "There is a limit to how large a single company can be. With the astonishingly large market share Holden owns both alone and through it's subsidiaries, I highly doubt it is physically possible for the automotive manufacturer to get any larger. To be honest, the only people left not buying Holden cars are either loyalists to another brand, or patriots who wish to only buy from their country of residence. I highly doubt Holden will be able to convert any of them, so Holden itself has reached it's peak. The Social Democracy outlook still looks extremely good, with stable growth, but I don't expect anything extraordinary in terms of economics in the foreseeable future. However, I am most definitely not writing off the Holden Boom just yet. The company has a history of making revolutionary calls when we begin to accept their defeat. I remain fairly confident of this, especially as the Global Subsidiary plan is only beginning to roll out, and the CEO of Holden itself did state last month that the Holden Corporation has big things planned for the future. As of now, I don't know much about this apart from the fact that Holden is working closely with the New-Zealand Government in regards to this new endeavour."

QAI SKYSCRAPER SURPASSES SAINT LAWRENCE TOWER TO BECOME TALLEST IN IU


Freedom Tower in Queen Anne Island.

QUEEN ANNE ISLAND, Arkania, Aloia == Freedom Tower, located in downtown Queen Anne Island, has passed the Sears Tower in Saint Lawrence, Electra, to be named the tallest building in the Imperial Union. Queen Anne Island is the largest city in the IU, and was the target of a massive terror attack which led Aloia into a war with the former nation of Rebordja. The terrorists from Rebordja flew two planes into the Mnemosyne Trade Center towers, bringing Aloia's two tallest buildings down, killing approximately 2,000 people. Aloia then entered a war against terror in Rebordja, leading to the collapse of Rebordja.

Since then, a tower has been rebuilt on the former location of the towers, named Freedom Tower. The new tower is a symbol for Aloia's new start after the attack and how it arose, stronger than ever, to stand for freedom and democracy. The tower is on the same site as the Mnemosyne Trade Center Museum and the two reflecting pools where the bases of the twin towers were.

NZ Concerned With NZC?
In recent year's the Alliance of the New-Zealand Colonies, a fully autonomous conglomerate of sovereign territories previously under the rule of the Social Democracy. However, while the Social Democracy has carved out a path to Liberal Democratic Socialism, the NZC has instead been sliding towards a Marquettan style Corporate Capitalism system. Recently statistics have shown that even though the NZC economy has boomed to phenomenal levels, leaving The Social Democracy substantially behind in terms of GDP/Capita, crime and corruption have skyrocketed to alarming levels. The Social Democracy has hinted that if corruption and income inequality continue to rise at worrying levels, the Social Democracy may use it's Head of State intervention right under the NZC charter, to restructure the government and bring the nation back to the core fundamentals of the New-Zealand system. However, at the same time the Social Democracy also hinted at remaining isolated from the situation by stating "There comes a time when a nation must simply sort out it's own problems and find it's own way". 

Holden to set up 2 new subsidiaries
Holden has hinted this morning at the location of two of it's latest subsidiaries. The company hinted at Caddilac being based in Great Eurussia, and Daewoo being based in Shirouma. However, Buick still remains undecided, and Holden did confirm that it will be introducing some more subsidiaries in the future.
