Sultan's Bulletin
Sultan of Hagramma Sends Condolences

With the death of the Bretislavian King, James IV, The Hagramman Royal Family wishes to send their condolences. The Sultan has dedicated a moment of silence during his weekly update on television at 08:00 AM earlier this morning and asked the people of Hagramma to pay respects and send their prayers to the King. Before finishing the weekly program, he wishes the best of luck to the heir, Johannes V, and may he be blessed in his duties as the King of Bretislavia.

Bretislavia reaffirms protection over Die Riech

A statement from the government this morning backed up Die Reich and stated that it would come to the aid of Die Reich if war were to break out against it. Due to the likeliness of this the army has begun mobilizing for war.

Sultan's Bulletin
A Hagram Now Worth Half a Gram of Gold

Earlier today, the Sultan has decreed that Hagramma's national currency, the Hagram, is worth half a gram of gold. This was achievable due to the recent rise of the Hagramman mining industry, many of which had been funded by the government to mine enough gold for each printed Hagram. However, the nation's jewelry industry has suffered from the lack of publicly available gold in the market. "Our noble currency should be backed by an equally noble metal" declared the Sultan this morning in Kasral Malik. He hopes that this act will put the Hagram above most other currencies.

Tiskaiyan Mobilization!

The Tsar himself has declared that if war were to break out, Tiskaiya would back her ally, Antarcticao against, as the Tsar put it, "The Red Plague, Filthy Republicans, and the Traitorous Bretislav people."

As such Tiskaiya has begun to mobilize her armed forces in preparation for war against Bretislavia and her allies.

You're way of life shall remain, our enemies shall be crushed, and we will be victorious!

Military preparedness level raised

The Chiefs of General Staff of the Indian People's Armed Forces have stated that "After evaluation of the ongoing military situation globally, we have determined that while it will not be in the nation's best interest to engage in active combat at any point soon, we must maintain close contacts and attention in regards to the situation in our allies, Die Riech for the purpose of keeping our allies in power and aiding them in the ongoing crisis in regards with the Antarcticaoan imperialist ambitions. In order to discuss what actions that we can take to ensure the Riechian government stays in its position, we will be doing three things for certain. Firstly, we are ordering that all active and reserve troops be ready for mobilization at any point soon. Secondly, we will host diplomatic talks with both the Riechian and Bretislavian governments to discuss what we will do in the face of the imperialist menace. Thirdly, we have asked our industrial and agricultural sectors to be prepared put more of their production towards wartime production, and be prepared for this production if we are to be dragged into a military conflict."

सैन्य तैयारी स्तर उठाया

भारतीय पीपुल्स आर्म्ड फोर्सेस के जनरल स्टाफ के प्रमुखों ने कहा है कि "विश्व स्तर पर चल रही सैन्य स्थिति के मूल्यांकन के बाद, हमने निर्धारित किया है कि जब तक यह किसी भी बिंदु पर सक्रिय लड़ाई में संलग्न होने के लिए राष्ट्र के हित में नहीं होगा, हमें जल्द ही करना होगा हमारे सहयोगियों की स्थिति के संबंध में निकट संपर्क और ध्यान बनाए रखें, हमारे सहयोगियों को सत्ता में रखने और अंटार्कटिका साम्राज्यवादी महत्वाकांक्षाओं के संबंध में चल रहे संकट में उन्हें सहायता देने के उद्देश्य से डाई रिच। इस बात पर चर्चा करने के लिए कि हम क्या कार्रवाई कर सकते हैं। यह सुनिश्चित करने के लिए कि रीचियन सरकार अपनी स्थिति में बनी रहे, हम तीन चीजें कर रहे हैं। सबसे पहले, हम यह आदेश दे रहे हैं कि सभी सक्रिय और आरक्षित सैनिक जल्द ही किसी भी समय जुटने के लिए तैयार रहें। दूसरे, हम दोनों रिचीयन के साथ कूटनीतिक वार्ता की मेजबानी करेंगे। और ब्रेटीस्लावियन सरकारों ने इस बात पर चर्चा करने के लिए कि हम साम्राज्यवादी खतरे के सामने क्या करेंगे तीसरा, हमने अपने औद्योगिक और कृषि क्षेत्रों को तैयार रखने के लिए कहा है। युद्धकालीन उत्पादन की ओर उनके उत्पादन का अधिक हिस्सा है, और इस उत्पादन के लिए तैयार रहें यदि हमें एक सैन्य संघर्ष में खींच लिया जाए।"

فوجی تیاری کی سطح بلند

ہندوستانی عوام کی مسلح افواج کے چیف آف جنرل اسٹاف نے کہا ہے کہ "عالمی سطح پر جاری فوجی صورتحال کا جائزہ لینے کے بعد ، ہم نے طے کیا ہے کہ جلد ہی کسی بھی موقع پر سرگرم لڑائی میں حصہ لینا قوم کے مفاد میں نہیں ہوگا ، ہمیں لازمی ہے کہ انٹارکٹیکا سامراجی عزائم کے سلسلے میں اپنے اتحادیوں کو اقتدار میں رکھنے اور جاری بحران میں ان کی مدد کرنے کے مقصد کے لئے ، اپنے اتحادیوں کی صورتحال کے حوالے سے قریبی رابطوں اور توجہ کو برقرار رکھنا۔ یہ یقینی بنانا ہے کہ رائچین کی حکومت اپنی پوزیشن پر قائم رہے ، ہم تین کام یقینی طور پر انجام دے رہے ہیں۔پہلا ، ہم حکم دے رہے ہیں کہ تمام متحرک اور ریزرو فوجی جلد کسی بھی مقام پر متحرک ہونے کے لئے تیار ہوں۔دوسرا ، ہم دونوں راچیان کے ساتھ سفارتی مذاکرات کی میزبانی کریں گے۔ اور بریٹیسلوئین حکومتیں اس بات پر تبادلہ خیال کریں کہ ہم سامراجی لعنت کے مقابلہ میں کیا کریں گے۔ تیسرا ، ہم نے اپنے صنعتی اور زرعی شعبوں کو تیار رہنے کو کہا ہے۔ ان کی زیادہ تر پیداوار جنگ کے وقت کی تیاری کی طرف ہے ، اور اگر ہمیں فوجی تنازعہ میں گھسیٹا جانا ہے تو اس پیداوار کے لئے تیار رہیں۔ "

The Imperial Giant Stirs

Inquisitive forces have mobilized across the Empire, taking control of Imperial Mines and refineries, causing production of steel and oil to both increase by 36%. Most civilian factories have been converted into militant ones, producing arms and artillery shells for any coming conflict. Recruitment centers across the nation are overwhelmed with those loyal to the Empire, this marks the second major recruitment surge since the tensions of 1880. Emperor Francis VI has convened the Congress of Province, a gathering of all provincial governors. Some speculate this meeting was to prepare the provincial defenses, while also inciting an infrastructure surge.

In other news, the largest cargo ships of the Empire have been mobilized to the northern seas and the Imperial Corridor. These ships were spotted being escorted by fleets of armed Imperial Naval Vessels, while carrying large steel fortress-like structures. Little is known about what they are doing or about what these structures are. The following is a statement from Emperor Francis VI:

"Tensions across the globe are high, as they should be. But let me assure those that wish to undermine either my position or the global position of the Empire, The Motherland does not stand alone. We stand with allies, and with Mars himself. Let this be a warning to all, be very wary, and make the right decisions. If you want your people to be safe, I recommend you make careful, thought out, and wise decisions. The sun will never set on the Antarcticaon Empire."

2-year militarization plan continues

as heat grows on continent , Arnodiastaniatian manufactories has finished their equipment quota for last month , just like they did for last 11 months. The Population spike that has been observed 17-20 years ago , has already been observed in millitary and already announced millitary expansion is continous. Millitary manuevers and wargames between generals are a common thing these days. Iron, coal and first Arnoldiastaniatian Automobile factory notice largest profits since their open as many of their assets and products are bought by Arnoldiastaniatian millitary , allowing them to expand their industries even further. As country production and millitarization grows up , so does opposition. This is only matter of time when generals will start vetoing further millitarization attemps , and maybie... shadow of a change in air.

[for the 1914 campaign]
With the tension between Die Riech and Antarticao worsening by the day the Riechian Government has decided to start a recruitment drive. All whom enlist will receive free housing for as long as they're within the Riechian armed forces, a salary of 20,000 Riechmarks with a bonus of 1,000 Riechmarks per year served in the Riechian Armed forces, and finally free education for enlisted and enlisting personnel.

The Silver Star Line Company has begun hiring workers to assist in building more vessels for the Riechian Navy as well as the conversion or modernization of existing Riechian vessels. Workers will receive free housing courtesy of the Silver Star Line Company as well as free meals during breaks and after shifts.

An investigation towards whom killed The young Antarticoan prince has begun, currently, the Berlin  police department has not released any of news on how said investigation is going so far, however any findings will be forwarded to the Antarticoan government along with any suspects.

With the construction of fortifications along Die Riechs coasts nearing completion plans have been drawn out to begin working on inland defences, no details have been released about said defences. On the topic of construction, both Military and Civilian factories are being built in both major and minor cities and towns across Die Riech. Several new mining and drilling operations have begun across Die Riech as Demands for both resources and jobs becomes higher in these trying times.

Finally, the Riechian Government has invited Antarticoan authorities to come and work along side Riechian authorities in finding those responsible for the death of their Prince stating " we are unsure why the Antarticoans are under the impression that we do not care for the death of their prince or that we are not letting them come to investigate. As stated both by our representative and the Chancellor, they are welcome to come and investigate the death of their Prince we have no intention of stopping them. However, Die Riech will not become an Inquisitive State." The Prince's body will be returned to the Antarticoans aboard the DRRN Berlin escorted by the DRRN Hamshaw, DRRN Kurtztown, DRRN Hamburgton and the DRRN Ludwig.
