Greater Australia thanks Imperial Eagle for standing by Australia. Greater Australia condemns Orange-Bourgogne for condemning the economic sanctions against Furstia. Greater Australia has reasonable and substantial evidence that Furstia supplied the dirty bomb. The evidence is the lead casing we found that said RBMK-1500 buried in a cave entrance in Afghanistan. Only two reactors of that type exist and they are called Zangana 1 and Zangana 2 and are located in the Zangana Power Plant in Australia.

RTEN News: Concerns About Republic City Come to Light
With the recent announcements of Republic City, seemingly proposed my President Madaki, some individuals fear the building of the city would do more harm than good. The main problem would be the inequality of the localized wealth. It is believed that a majority of the housing in Republic City will be on the higher end of prices. Experts have said that the prices should lower over time, however.
Another concern is that a large portion of funding for certain programs or departments will be cut to pay for the new city. Madaki stated that the cuts will occur in unneccessary programs and lower, unnecessary departments. Larger programs or departments are a last resort.
Planning for the China in West Africa
A 6 square mile plot of land in Noumoudjigulia, a border region between Guinea and the Ivory Coast, will be the site of a gigantic Chinese styled city, after closed-door talks with the West African and Qing government garnered results. The Board of Works has announced plans to construct and build a new, modern urban environment, where Chinese diaspora and businesses can interact with the West African country - which could potentially become China's largest foreign market for companies, investment, and a sustainable economic partner.
The Board of Works has christened the area 'Xijing', meaning 'Western Capital', for its location relative to China proper, as well as a plan to construct the Qing Emperor's new Summer Palace there. The aforementioned new Summer Palace, which will be an almost exact replica of the Old Summer Palace of Beijing, will be built in Xijing. Spanning 1.35 square miles, it will be 1.8 times larger than the Forbidden City in Beijing.
The Old Summer Palace, also known as the Yuanmingyuan or the Imperial Gardens, was a complex of palaces and gardens 8 kilometres northwest of the Imperial City. Contrary to popular belief, the Old Summer Palace was the main imperial residence of the Qing Emperor, whereas the Forbidden City was used for formal ceremonies. The Imperial Gardens consisted of the Garden of Perfect Brightness, Garden of Eternal Spring, and the Garden of Elegant Spring. Together, they covered an area of 1.35 square miles, and hosted hundreds of structures: halls, pavilions, temples, galleries, gardens, lakes and bridges, etc.
However, in 1860, an Anglo-French expedition force reached the palace and conducted extensive looting and destruction. The palace was so large that it took 4000 men 3 days of burning to destroy it. Many of its original artworks, such as sculptures, porcelain, jade, silk robes, elaborate textiles, gold objects, etc., were stolen by soldiers, and eventually sold to collections.
The Board of Works has provided blueprints of the Old Summer Palace, as well as recreations based on old historical descriptions and artworks, to construction firms responsible for the construction of Republic City, where it is hoped the exact architectural style will be mimicked to great accuracy. Over $10 billion USD in funds has been pledged to recreating the project, as well as an additional $5 billion USD for the construction of the city, adding onto the $8.55 billion USD the Board of Works has already pledged towards building Republic City.
The New Summer Palace will serve as the Emperor's personal lodging in the months of May to August, and will also serve as the Embassy building for West Africa upon completion. From September to April, the Palace will be open to the public as a museum and tourist spot, wherein visitors can enjoy the splendour of Chinese architecture and culture, and by moving from structure to structure, visitors can view a series of carefully composed scenes, akin to unrolling a scroll of paintings. The concept of a Chinese garden is to show a visitor a series of perfectly composed landscapes, which "hid the vulgar and the common as far as the eye can see, and included the excellent and the splendid." There was also a Western-style palace which was built in the Summer Palace, known as the Haiyantang, which boasted pavilions, aviaries, a maze, fountains, basins, and waterworks as well as perspective paintings. In addition, a fountain which bore twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac that spouted water in turn every 2 hours and in concert at noon, will be replicated and built.
Due to its posting as an Embassy building upon completion, it has been granted some degree of extraterritoriality, with its staff to be granted diplomatic immunity.
The Summer Palace will be separated from the rest of Xijing via a wall. Outside the wall, the Board of Works has announced that it will be imposing a height limit for all buildings of 18 meters within the Chinese plot, as to prevent it from obscuring the view of the New Summer Palace and Imperial Gardens. Preliminary zoning has occurred, setting out areas for stores, residential houses, and other buildings.

I wish to congratulate you and the republic on the great and ambitious projects that your nation has started. With all our heart, the Imperial Federation wishes that these projects bring an unprecedented level of prosperity to your nation. Since these projects indicate that your nation is swiftly moving on from its past tribulations, we believe that it is time to reevaluate the relationship between our two nations, and I would be happy to take the initiative in that process. A partnership to keep both our realms, and the continent that we share, stable, free, and prosperous, should be our first priority. I believe the first steps have been taken already by the former Queen. The process of creating a series of initiatives for the shared ends named above would be much more meaningful as the meaning of our nations have changed quite recently. I am looking forward to hearing from you, and I would invite you to please share your thoughts with me.

IIHL World Cup Tournament Update
After 7 Days and 4 Games, the Series between Team Romanovskaya and Team Russoslava is currently tied 2-2, Game 4 was won by Team Romanovskaya in a 2-1 Double Overtime victory. The Goaltenders in the games are the only reason why the games have ended up close. Sergei Volkov and Yuriy Khloponin have saved over 300 Shots in the past 4 games and only allowed 5 goals apiece. The Old Soviet-Style mixed with hard checkings and speed of thew Russoslav team can't get it past Khloponin and the Offensive focused style of Team Romanovskaya can't breach the hard check defense of the Russoslava team and Volkov's unique style.
RTEN News: Republic City Update and Other News

City changes its name
The Peloponnesian city of Tripoli has officially changed its name today. The new name of the city is “Drobolitsa”, the same name that the city had in the Middle Ages. The reason of the name change is that it is often confused with the city on the Libyan coast with the same name. A referendum on the name change was held three months ago in the city, in which 63% of the city’s inhabitants voted in favor of the name change. As of today, the new name is officially in use.
Dear Ms. Televracenko
I am writing to inform you that I recently passed on your previous letter to Her Serene Highness Princess Zephyrine I. I am pleased to inform you that the Princess and her husband, His Serene Highness Prince Hendrik, intend to accept your invitation to the wedding between Barron Sergei Vladovich Medvedev and Princess Anastasia Mikhailovena Sokolova.

"Poke is on the Center ice face dots, Valentin Yelins has not had a signal penalty shot all tournament, Sergei Volkov has never left one pass him, Here comes Valentin Yelins, he goes right in Volkov poke checks, and Valentin Yelins scores? Wait but Volkov got his stick on that puck the ref is saying it's a good goal," Carter said, confused.
"Volkov is going to the Ref and is pointing to his stick, saying "I got that, it's a dead puck" and the ref isn't having it, the Game is going to end on a controversial goal, OH WOW, Volkov just threw his stick in disgust and is leaving the ice with his team" Markov added.
"Here comes Team Romanovskaya to celebrate with Valentin Yelins, and Russoslav fans are booing and leaving the stadium," Carter noted.
"Here comes Milan Mikhailachuk IIHL president, to present the trophy to the team,"
Rallys clash in Cairo, Alexandria responds
Cairo has been shook in recent weeks as royalists and republicans clash in the streets of Cairo. After the rallys in Alexandria, there were mirror rallys in the second city, with much different reactions. Cairo was the hotbed of anti royalists retributions during the unrest at the latter end of the Anax family rule. Families and friends of the thousands killed or tortured during the Republican movements war against the regime came out against the Royalists today as they held a rally in favour of the Princess Veranos to protest her exclusion from the Constitutional Convention. The scenes in the city were similar to those in the 70s but instead of working from the shadows, the Republicans attacked the rallys branding them as murderer supporters and fascists. All rallys have been cancelled to prevent anymore violence, but sporadic attacks between groups of Republicans and Royalists still plague the streets. Alexandria has warned that if the violence escalates, the national guard will be sent in
