Sozialdemokratische Rally in Agram.

Sara Silivasi, the leader of the Social Democratic Party was present at a rally held by her party today in the city of Agram, in the Kingdom of Croatia.

She took to the stage along with many other notable embers of her party and presented her manifesto for the upcoming election, promising sweeping reforms and radical policies across many areas. Highlights included the creation and funding of a universal basic healthcare service and the creation of a blanket 14/hour minimum wage nationwide. In addition they promised to create a better example on the international stage, acting as a beacon of hope and peace for the world and cutting ties with nations who have been accused of human rights violations and more.

She also promised to issue a number of social reforms. Being a member of the LGBT community herself she promised to petition the Kaiserin to support an amendment to the constitution and bill of rights to protect all citizens from discrimination based on sexuality and gender identity alongside the already present protections based on Age, Nationality, Sex and Disabilities.

She then hounded Walther Ritschel and his Freedom party for being nothing more than alt-right authoritarian fascist demagogues who only stood for the wealthy and political elite while claiming to be a party that represents the common man. They claimed that the "freedom" represented by Ritschel is nothing more than false populism and nationalism based on nothing more than scapegoats and buzzwords. She claimed that a dark future awaits should Walther and his cronies gain office.

If elected, the social democrats promise to bring Danubia into the 21st century and create a modern nationstates where all people of the Danube are truly free and equal. As the first non-german, female and lgbt chancellor of Austria she would prove that all are equal and all have a chance to make a difference.

Current Polling - National Elections

POLLS MAY NOT BE ENTIRELY REPRESENTATIVE OF ACTUAL NATIONWIDE OPINION, THE FOLLOWING IS ONLY AN ESTIMATION OF THE CURRENT VOTING INTENTION DURING THE UPCOMING ELECTION. POLLS MAY CHANGE OVER TIME.

Sozialdemokratische Partei (SDP) - 302

Donau-Freiheitspartei (DFP) - 254

Demokratische Partei (DDP) - 67

Donau-Grünen (GPD) - 20

Reformkoalition (RKD) - 2

NO OUTRIGHT MAJORITY
323 SEATS NEEDED FOR MAJORITY
DEMOCRATIC PARTY LOSE MAJORITY
SDP WILL BE THE BIGGEST PARTY

Polls show that currently no single party has an outright majority for the first time in Danubian History. As the largest party, the Social Democrats have the highest chance of forming a coalition. The most likely scenarios in this case are a coalition with the Democratic Party bringing the total seats up to a comfortable 369 or if that fails a coalition with the Greens and Reform Coaltion, leading to a slim majority of 324.

The Freedom party are not far behind however, as they are not far behind the social democrats and could potentially form their own coalition with the Democratic Party should the social democrats fail to do so. alongside the big tent reform coalition they could barely reach the 323 seats needed to form a coalition.

The Democratic Party are disheartened by recent polls but have not yet given up hope, urging people not to give into extremism and promising to be a force for peace and unity across Danubia, catering to the centrist policies of previous governments. However, as they are looking to lose 87% of their former seats (467) to other parties it seems unlikely that the democrats will return to government meaning that for the first time a new party will take the chancellorship. However, if they maintain their current powerbase they could take the role of Kingmaker allowing Democratic leader Tomáš Kuchár to maintain strong influence over future Danubian politics.

Woods Hole Research Center announces discoveries off Midway Atoll

During a press release today in Hawaii, John Yates, head of Woods Hole Research Center, he confirmed that all ships sunk during the Battle of Midway in 1942 have been founded and accounted for. This comes to light after the discovery of the Japanese aircraft carriers Kaga,Akagi, Hiryū and Sōryū after years of searching. Other warships found during the search include the destroyer USS Hammann and the Japanese cruiser Mikuma. Save for the Hammann and Mikuma, both of which are either upright or upside down, the carriers are in upright positions though show severe damage from bomb hits and secondary explosions. As the sunken ships contain the remains of their respective crews, no artifacts will be taken and the sites watched over by the War Graves Commission. Memorial plaques have been left at each site so as to honor the bravey of their crews and a notice has been sent to the Government of Japan.

Board of Works to inject additional funding into Beihaidao High-Speed Railway

The Beihaidao High-Speed Railway, also known as the Hokkaido Shinkansen (although the name has fallen out of use), is slated to open by the end of the year, following an injection of $100 million USD into the project.

Currently, the Beihaidao HSR is planned to run from Hakodate, to Wakkanai, with stops in Muroran, Tomakomai, Sapporo, Sunagawa, Asahikawa, Nayoro and Toyotomi. Currently, the HSR runs parallel to the pre-existing Hakodate, Muroran and Soya rail lines, which operate conventional rolling stock.

The project has been under construction since 2000, following the closure of the Seikan Tunnel, disconnecting Beihaidao from mainland Japan in 1988. Upon completion, the Beihaidao HSR is said to be able to employ around 8,000 members of staff, in addition to making cross-Beihaidao travel cheaper and more convenient for the average citizen.

It is said that the Beihaidao HSR will operate the CRH2 Hexie rolling stock, which can reach maximum speeds of 250 km/h. One would be expected to traverse through the entire line in around 2 hours and 42 minutes, at a cheap price of $39 USD.

Additionally, the Board of Works has stated that it would greenlight the Sakhalin-Beihaidao Connection Link, which would connect the southern tip of Sakhalin to Beihaidao via a 40-kilometre-long bridge. Based on the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge, it is expected that the bridge would cost roughly $13.67 billion USD to construct, and would be officially opened in less than a decade.

This would mean that Beihaidao would have a continuous land link to the rest of the Mainland Qing. Following the deactivation of the Sakhalin Railway in 2010, the Board of Works has also approved its reactivation, as construction workers and technicians begin mustering resources to the island.

"We have a bright future ahead of us," a local informed a television news crew. "A connection to the Mainland means more money flows in. It's good for us, really."

Some have said that the reactivation of the Sakhalin railway was an immensely popular idea. "Reactivating it makes it more convenient for me to travel now," a Sakhalin fisherman said. "I haven't the foggiest why they closed it down in 2010, but reactivating it now sounds pretty good to me."

Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland

Col. Irving Morrell looked at the prototype as it made its way across the testing grounds and could only shake his head before turning to his aide

"If Washington expects this thing to work as intended, they better get DARPA to get their act together. The way it is now, it can't hold much of a charge to power the damn system and I doubt people want to have this thing be nuclear."

As he gave a rueful chuckle, his aide, Lt. Smalls, could only look at the new prototype tank before speaking

"Wanting to replace all the old M1A2s with this monster would take time and money, which thankfully Congress is funding. Something about keeping our edge in the world. But how in the hell are we to build even a simple and moron-proof pseudo-railgun tank? Wouldn't it just be better to put the new ETC gun in the turret and call it good?"

Morrell only shook his head before facing Smalls

"That would be cheaper and easier but some egghead over at DARPA could a wild hair up his a** and thought of this monster and now here we are testing the sole coil-gun in the world hooked to a new tank chassis complete with his idea of reactive armor and explosive vent panels. It'sa great design and well build, seeing how they have been working on it for a few years but as it is would never be of use on the battlefield. If they can't fix the power supply issue to power the main gun, I'm going to recommend they just fit the new 130mm ETCs to it and go from there. If it works better in that configuration, we can go onto the next stage and build a few more prototypes. The only things that work as designed are the dual remote turrets and missile defense system. The tracks need some work but that's a simple fix. But for their sake, they better make the power supply longer lasting and more powerful to move both the tank and charge the main gun or someone's getting a visit from me at the Pentagon and it won't be pretty."

As Morrell and Smalls watched the prototype fire a weak charged shot at a move target, both men only shook their heads as the lack of severe damage to the target.

"What a mess..." Morrell grumbled.

Freedom Party Question Silivasi's Heritage

At todays Freedom party rally Walther Ritschel attacked SDP Leader Sara Silivasi. In a rousing speech he openly called her motives to question, citing her familial ties to Infiny (Sara Silvasi was born to Ruthenian and Infinian Parentage) and accusing her of potentially having bias against her own nation, saying that we cannot trust one of foreign blood and influence to have power over the nation.

This attack further emboldened the far-right and nationalist supporters of Ritschel and his freedom party, citing a recent leak to multiple high profile newspapers that revealed Silvasi's Parentage to the nation. This has however strengthened her support among more progressive members of the electorate and has alienated a few moderate voters of the DFP.

Silvasi admitted her familial ties in response to this attack, but assures the public that this will not impact her ability to rule. Despite this she will not reject and cast aside her Infinian routes and used it as an opportunity to further her platform of creating more equal opportunities and equality for all people of Danubia.

Reform Coaltion Backs Silvasi

The Reform Coalition, headed by joint leaders Stefan Todorović and Laura Waismann, have today in a press conference announced that their party will be formally backing the Social Democrats in the upcoming race and have urged their voters to support Silvasi in the upcoming election citing that Ritschel and his government are a threat to democracy and the principles their party honours.

Current Polling - National Elections

Sozialdemokratische Partei (SDP) - 315

NO OUTRIGHT MAJORITY
323 SEATS NEEDED FOR MAJORITY
DEMOCRATIC PARTY LOSE MAJORITY
SDP WILL BE THE BIGGEST PARTY

Since our previous poll both the SDP and DFP have had substantial gains, while the Social Democrats are still expected to be the biggest party. The Reform Party are expected to continue their support of the SDP and their voters are expected to do the same, with some voters of the Greens following suit and voting for an SDP government to prevent a Ritschel Chancellorship, bringing their estimated total up to 315 which is still just shy of a majority.

The Freedom Party have also made gains however with many taking on the DFPs fears surrounding Silvasi and her ties to Infiny as well as general fear mongering towards their "communist" tendencies. The Democratic Party are thus expected to collapse even further.

The Social Democrats are closer to a majority and would potentially need less support, only needing a coalition with either the Greens (a historical ally of the SDP) or the Democratic Party to create a coalition majority. Meanwhile the DFP would need to form a coalition with both the Democrats and Greens to prevent an SDP coalition.

BREAKING: PRIME MINISTER URGED KING TO DELAY ELECTION
~ OBBC News

A source has confidentially informed OBBC News that Prime Minister Nichola Pankhurst MP has asked His Majesty King Henry to postpone the upcoming General Election by no less than three months. Allegedly, King Henry refused to co-operate with his Prime Minister, threatening to dismiss her if she maintained her position, citing that it was against the law of the land to delay a parliamentary election purely for political purposes.

Private Secretary to the Prime Minister Rosie Mackay refused to comment on the issue, saying that the audiences between the Prime Minister and the monarch are "private and wholly confidential". She also argued that it was a "crime of high treason" for any (former) Prime Minister to talk about any conversation they may have had with the monarch and that the punishment for such a criminal offence would be life imprisonment.

The Earl of Sussex, Lord Chamberlain and Master of the Royal Household, did neither confirm nor deny the allegations, saying that he was unaware of the claims when they were raised to him. Though, unlike the Office of the Prime Minister, he did confirm that if such a thing were to be true, it was a "most serious matter" and that it "almost ought to have consequences".

To whom it may concern, Greeting!

My ministerial department took close notice when the government of Da Qing Empire announced its plans to further better the infrastructure of its nation. As the United Kingdom of Orange-Bourgogne and Da Qing Empire share a border in the middle of the East Qing Sea,* because of the island and province of Jeju, we would like to inquire whether or not it would be possible to conclude a bilateral treaty which would make it possible for people from the Qing Empire to travel through the waters of the United Kingdom, specifically from and to the Ryukyu Islands.

This would make travel much more efficient, for there would no longer be a requirement for either a passport check if one was to travel through our waters, or to have to go around these waters instead. I would like to make it clear beforehand that it is not our intention to make this treaty applicable to tourists from other nations. It is also not our goal to include in it a provision which makes fishing and other economic activities in the Orange-Bourgognian waters available for people and organisations originating in Da Qing Empire, that is to say at least, unless a further future treaty to that end is to come into force.

The same, of course, also applies for aeroplanes which fly in Orange-Bourgognian aerial spaces.

All correspondence regarding this subject may be sent to the Orange-Bourgognian Embassy at Da Qing Empire. The Ambassador has been informed about these negotiations, and should you be willing to initiate talks with us, they are the appropriate officials to write and speak to.

Board of Works

The Board of Works of the Qing Dynasty is more than willing to sign such a bilateral treaty. We are also more than satisfied to extend this privilege to Orange-Bourgognan nationals, who wish to travel from Jeju to the Liuqiu Islands (Ryukyu Islands).

However, some provisions are requested by the various Boards across the Dynasty, such as:

  • Any criminals transiting within Orange-Bourgognan waters, or making any stops, will be detained and extradited to their point of origin, assuming that said point was from Qing soil. The same courtesy will be extended to Orange-Bourgognan criminals.
    (OOC: This is essentially a extradition treaty.)

  • Both parties will refrain from the act of transiting military craft through each other's possessions, barring the declaration of war or other military action that was mutually agreed upon.

  • Fishing and economic activities by any party in the opposing party's EEZ is prohibited for the time being.

  • Control of Jeju Island shall be handed to Qing hands.

    Should the Department of State for Infrastructure in Orange-Bourgogne find such an arrangement satisfactory, this treaty can be signed immediately.

    Subject: Travel efficiency treaty
    Classification: Public

    To Prince Zhili, Greeting!

    First of all, let me thank the Board of Works for its prompt response to our proposal.

    The Treaty that we have proposed would solely deal with efficiency for those seeking to travel through Orange-Bourgognian waters and aerial spaces. Therefore, we believe that there is no need to make provisions for extraditing criminals. The Treaty does not allow ships or aeroplanes to stop or remain indefinitely within our borders. The Treaty will only be helpful for those whose departure and destination locations are in the Qing Empire. However, if the Board of Works is willing to allow free passage for Orange-Bourgognians to the Liuqiu Islands and the Qing mainland, we would not object to such provisions. If, however, there are criminals detected to try to make misuse of the provisions under the Treaty, the standard procedures will be followed, that is, he will first be tried by an Orange-Bourgognian Court of Justice on the suspicion of preventing the course of justice or trespassing.

    The Treaty which we propose furthermore does not seek to make any alteration with regards to the transiting of military crafts of any sort. This Treaty will only extend to private individuals. Therefore, we see no need to include such a provision, though, if the Qing Empire would like to have such a provision nonetheless, I am sure that Orange-Bourgogne is willing to engage in negotiations to make a non-aggression treaty between our states and have that as one of the principle provisions in it.

    There is equally no reason to suspend economic activities undertaken by any corporation by either of our nations in the other state's exclusive economic zone. We therefore propose that the status quo be maintained until further conclusions have been agreed upon.

    With regards to your last point, that we hand over control of Jeju Island, we believe that an misunderstanding has arisen. We do not want to create a defence arrangement similar to that of Bermuda and the Union. It is non-negotiable for us to sign away the Province of Jeju under this treaty, or any other treaty in the future.

    OOC: How exactly did you get Jeju Island? It's actually so random lmao
    Anyhow, note that the Qing still lays claim onto the island, by virtue of Pan-Asianism, and that Jeju should be 'reunited' with the ethnic Koreans. The reason I bring this up is because it might be helpful for me to understand the precise nature surrounding the OB involvement with Jeju, to see how I could make this work around the lore.

    The Board of Works finds the aforementioned terms agreeable for the time being. Hence, we declare that the provisions of such treaty will remain in force, effective immediately, barring its withdrawal by one of the signing parties.

    Agricultural Productivity and Soil Conservation in Northeast Infiny

    It need not be a secret that the northern part of Infiny is covered in dryland, sometimes even straight-up desert. The problem that the condition of the Galeenite, Aranese, Ogadi and Swietyan lands has on the Infinian population is that it can't produce the amount of food required for the increasing urban population in the region, most prominently in Mogadishu, Merca, and Sarapion (Jazeera). Due to the increasing population of these cities, the food it requires becomes larger by the day, something that the soil around the population centers cannot sustain. The cheapest food available has to be imported from the fertile grounds in the south of Infiny. As such, the state governments have launched initiatives to make the soil more productive without degrading it.

    The aforementioned states are planning on hosting a science summit in order to solve this problem in the most sustainable way. The summit is explicitly open for foreign scientists, who are willing and able to share their specific wisdoms with the Infinian nation in order to make it more productive. More on this story as it develops.

    The University of Westminster City would like to react to the latest news from Infiny regarding a summit on agricultural productivity. The university would like to send a delegation of scientists to the summit, in order to be able to contribute to and learn from the expertise and practices available in this very subject.

    If so allowed, our delegation would be headed by Dr Emma Hopkins, who studied water management in the Province of Orange, Orange-Bourgogne, for a considerable amount of her academic career. She will lead a team of six experts in fields ranging from editing the DNA of crops to land pollution. Together the team has more than 250 years of experience.

    We would be honoured if we were to be allowed to attend this meeting, and we will await approval from the organisation in Infiny to this end.

    Daria Osennykh: "President Collins, as I am sure you would agree, we feel that there should be closer cooperation between our two nations with regards to trade. In a world that is getting smaller thanks to the advancement of technology, the constraints of our geographic locations have less of an effect. Despite the distance between our two nations there is a superb opportunity to develop trade between us, particularly in the services sector and the financial and banking sectors. I would be very intrigued to hear your opinion on this.
