  1. Hey Flauschi! As far as I know there isn’t really an official process. I would imagine you could just state your intent to reclaim your nation on the RP discord or just message Fujai on discord.
  2. The dikahnawadvsdi aninotlvsgi iyunadai has passed a bill that, if approved, will grant the Royal Aviation Administration the power to regulate the prices of airline tickets. People worry that these regulations will make air travel less affordable as the price of tickets would no longer change with market while supporters of the bill believe it would allow Zoranian airlines to focus on quality of travel and quality of service on their airline flights which would allow airlines to compete with each other over the quality of their service domestically and internationally. Opposition to the bill believe that these prices would cripple the Zoranian aviation industry as Zoranian airlines would not be able to compete with the potentially lower prices of the international market. "It's no longer the 1360s," says Lawmaker Tsosie of the Republican Action Party, "the Zoranian economy is more connected to the international market than back then where regulations like this were to help make a new industry a viable option for travel. But now the aviation industry is a huge part of the global economy that has flourished under its deregulation and its ability to set its own price based on supply and demand. By enforcing these regulations upon the industry, we are likely to see Zoranian airlines be unable to compete with the international market and thus potentially risk an entire industry in our economy along with the thousands of jobs it supplies for potentially a higher quality of service that is not guaranteed." Regardless, this bill will not become law until the Queen gives her approval on it but this hasn't stopped Zoranian airlines from scrambling as they seek to draft plans for if the regulations pass.

  4. January 3rd, 1424 4:00 PM Over Time New Zoradia, Zoran “Your Majesty, Ambassador Ahyoka is on the line to report the current situation in Candelu.” said Foreign Affairs Minister Rayetayah Agaluysdi, “Thank you, Agaluysdi, put her on speaker.” replied Queen Adsila. Rayetayah obliged, putting the call on speaker so all in the room could hear. “Ambassador,” said Adsila, “you are on speaker. Myself along with Minister Agaluysdi and General Adahihi are in the room right now. What is the situation in Candelu and what do you recommend we do at this point in time?” “Thank you, Your Majesty,” begins Ahyoka, “the situation does not seem…ideal as it were. The situation is not likely to turn violent yet but who knows how the situation will develop at this point in time. It is my guess that the emperor is likely to try a diplomatic approach with the Zannians.” “How receptive are the Zannians to negotiations with the Emperor?” asked Rayetayah, “I can’t say, sir, but considering that the Zannians have continuously ignored Candeluian laws and seem to be adamant about their independence, I assume that they are not too keen on the idea.” The Queen sits there for a moment and ponders the situation, knowing very well that lack of communication could cause the situation to escalate as either party grows more desperate. “Do you recommend that we get involved at all?” asks the queen, “If we do, we cannot favor either side. But doing nothing won’t improve the situation at all but we have the excuse of distance to ignore the situation.” answered Ahyoka, “What is the likelihood of armed conflict developing in the region?” asked General Adahihi, “Well, as I said earlier the likelihood of armed conflict is low at the moment but should Candelu dissolve and become Granzia and Zanna again then conflict in the future is possible. Also, should a violent uprising occur, the Candeluian government would be unlikely to put it down as they lack a military” The Queen mulls over her options, thinking over possible actions she could take. While she knows she could simply remain uninvolved in the situation, she does not want to continue the old GDC policy of political isolation. Knowing how badly the civil war affected her country, she does not wish for a similar situation to occur in another part of the world. She closes her eyes and thinks back upon the capabilities of the nation when she recalls the plan for the structure of the Zoranian army. She opens her eyes and looks to General Adahihi, “General, you were there when Waholi and I along with other leaders of the Revolutionary Army came up with the plan for the Zoranian army, right?” “Yes, Your Majesty. The plan was to develop a powerful force that can be rapidly deployed and be flexible in their mission capacity through modularization and training to perform a variety of duties outside of warfare.” “Eh, close enough,” says Adsila, “would you say that the army, in its current state, has the capacity for an initial rapid deployment task force?” “Where are you going with this, Your Majesty?” asks Ambassador Ahyoka curiously. Minister Rayetayah raises an eyebrow at Adsila, clearly curious himself as to what she is planning. “How about we offer to send a peacekeeping force into Candelu to help maintain conditions to facilitate negotiations between the two parties? We ensure peace is maintained and use our presence as a deterrent for any opportunists seeking to incite some violence.” “That…could work,” says Ahyoka, “as long as we maintain that we are neutral in the affair and keep our troops from taking sides then it could be a valid option.” “Uh…I think we should consult Minister Yenuha on this.” says Minister Agaluysdi with hesitation, “The deployment of troops abroad without a declaration of war, even for a peacekeeping operation, might ruffle some feathers in the dikahnawadvsdi aninotlvsgi iyunadai.” Adsila laughs in response to this statement, “I will take care of the iyunadai should they try to confront me on this, I want you, Minister Agaluysdi, to do your part in monitoring the situation with Ambassador Ahyoka to ensure that our peacekeeping efforts are proceeding as planned.” “Just to be clear,” says Ahyoka, “we are offering to send a peacekeeping force into Candelu?” “Yes, with not just military personnel but also some military observers and police to ensure conditions conducive to negotiations are maintained. Inform the Candelu and Zannian parties about this and make it clear to them that our forces are there in a neutral capacity.” “Very well, Your Majesty. I will get to it immediately.” says Ahyoka before hanging up. Adsila turns to look at General Adahihi, “Get the pre-planned rapid deployment task force of one light mechanized infantry battalion, one self-propelled mortar battery, and one light cavalry company ready for deployment as soon as possible. Prepare the necessary C-17s for their transport along with their equipment and vehicles.” General Adahihi salutes and marches out of the room to fulfill their orders leaving Adsila and Rayetayah together in the room. “Don’t underestimate the iyundai, Your Majesty, you don’t want to make an enemy of it.” says Rayetayah nervously, “Oh I am aware, but I know just the right song to play to get opponents to see this as an opportunity for Zoran. Now, I must go to my next meeting, see you later, Rayetayah.” she says as she gets up from her chair and walks out the room.
  5. The long awaited decision on the two bills has finally arrived as Her Majesty, Queen Adsila, has finally announced their decision. Despite foreign pressure, Queen Adsila granted her assent to the Colonial Restitutions Act, effectively stripping many Markan Houses of their estates within Zoran. Over the course of the next few months, the National Council of Lawmakers will have a special committee that will oversee the process and decide which estates may become public property for the public use and which estates will be brought into the sovereign allocations of the Crown. The law's co-author, Waya Adinesgesgi, had to say this on the matter: "It is a good day for Zoranians across the country as our sacred and ancestral lands are restored to us. Hopefully this act will heal the generational pain that colonialism has brought to this country by driving out the last vestiges of that colonial period from this country." As for the second bill, the Blood Alone Act, Her Majesty did not give her royal assent and used an absolute veto on the matter. Minority groups in the country cheered the decision and let out a sigh of relief at the news. In a surprise turn of event, Her Majesty released an explanation for her veto in which she said the following: "I do not believe that this bill was made with the best intentions of the people in mind. The only purpose of this legislation would be to further divide our people with unnecessary classification. Zoran does not need a piece of legislation to determine Zoranian ancestry, the social feature of Clan names already serves that purpose in our society. So why must we subject minorities within our country to potential institutional discrimination and harassment when they have been living peacefully with us for centuries? As far as I’m concerned, all lawful people living within these borders are under my protection and should be treated equally regardless of heritage or origin." With the Blood Alone Act vetoed, the National Council is likely to return to the matter of citizenship and draft a new piece of legislation that would settle the matter. But the supporters of the Blood Alone Act will likely lose the votes of minority groups in the next election cycle. Perhaps there might be some faces that are not re-elected, but we will wait and see what happens in the next few years. But right now, the people of Zoran are celebrating the results of the two pieces of legislation as they celebrate the end of Markan control of Zoranian lands, the last vestiges of the colonial period, and the defeat of the Blood Alone Act. .

Later when the crew is out of the slums: Noya: Of course that fool had to get arrested. Sorry folks, but we won't be exploring the local cuisine in the slums today.

I-" Noya: “Quiyakaso, why do you have a black eye?” Quiyakaso: “Oh this? Yeah I got it after a Ryxtylopian punched me in the face during a flash mob.” Noya: “...A flash mob? Really? What is this, 1403?!” Quiyakaso: “Well, it was a weird flash mob. They were all holding signs and chanting something. So I made myself a sign that said 'I Like Pie' and started chanting that while walking with them.” Noya: "...Quiyakaso, that was a protest...not a flash mob." Quiyakaso: “Ooooooooooh, that makes a lot of sense!” Noya: [groans] “You think!” Quiyakaso: "Yeah...and then I walked into the slums. Nice people, some of them.

The Zoranian Thunderbirds won their match 2-1 after clutching victory from the jaws of a tie!" Noya: ...That's not the expression, Quiyakaso. It wouldn't even work in this situation!

  10. July 15, 1423 New Zoradia, Zoran 12:10 AM Overtime “The Tlanowa is not mortally wounded and should recover, they are currently resting after surgery.” said the guard over the phone. Yenuha and Yonaguska let out a relieved sighs at the news, “Thank you, keep visitors to a minimum and security high. Do not let the Tlanowa near any windows and keep information about their condition top secret for now.” ordered Yenuha, “Understood, sir.” Upon putting the phone down, Yonaguska ran a hand down his face and fell back into a chair, “Thank the Great Spirit that we don’t have to deal with the fallout of a successful assassination.” said Yonaguska, “Yes, but we still have to catch the person behind this. As soon as we let news of Adsila’s condition reach the public the assassin will likely strike again.” said Yenuha as he takes a bottle of rum out of a liquor cabinet and pours himself and Yonaguska a glass. But before either of them could take a sip Yenuha’s phone started to ring. With a groan, Yenuha checked who it was from Director of Communications, Awinita, and answered the call, “He-” “Pull up the news, now!” barked Director Awinita. Yenuha gave a worried look at Yonaguska before having Yonaguska pull up the RNN’s live news broadcast. When the video loaded, they saw General Waholi speaking to the reporters at the entrance of the house. “While Her Majesty’s condition and her assassin is unknown to us. However, we have strong suspicions that the perpetrator was an operative from the commie Fujansk government with support from the socialist groups in Zoran. We believe that the fujansk and the socialists seek to destabilize our nation through the assassination of our beloved Queen…” Yenuha slammed his fist down on the desk, “That bastard!” he exclaimed, “I knew he should have been put under watch!” “This is not good, we just started to recover from the Kalmach affair and now this!” groaned Yonaguska, “Awinita, what’s your plan for dealing with this?” asked Yenuha, “First, I am going to need you to get him off the air!” answered Awinita, “Only then can I organize a press conference to express our apologies and clear up the misinformation spread by Waholi. How you deal with the Fujansk and the socialists is on you.” “Alright, I will see what I can do. Keep me posted.” said Yenuha before hanging up and turning to Yonaguska, “Come on, let’s get Waholi out of the spotlight.” July 15, 1423 New Zoradia, Zoran, Scene of the Crime 12:10 AM Overtime An old, rusted, and beaten up car rumbles down the street towards the crime scene with an older man behind the wheel. As he reaches the barricade he is stopped by an officer of the Agency of National Security, “Sir, you must turn around and take a detour, the road ahead is blocked off. Civilians are forbidden from entering the crime scene.” said the officer, “Oh well, sir, eh I’m a police officer,” he says as he digs into his rumpled raincoat and pulls out his badge and ID, “Lieutenant Golivmiwo, NZPD. I was told I would be allowed to investigate the crime scene.” The officer looks over the identification to verify the identity of the lieutenant, “Oh, apologies Lieutenant. We were told to expect an officer from the NZPD but you don’t look like a police officer.” “Oh it’s no problem, sir, I get that a lot.” “Right this way then, you can park up here.” Lieutenant Golivmiwo is then escorted by the officer to a parking space and is taken to the scene of the crime. The place where the queen’s body is laid has been outlined with tape and a group of agents are gathered around the area. “This is where it happened, lieutenant. But this is about as good as we can get because we think the bullet is in the Queen’s body. So we won’t know much until we get details fro-” he stopped as he looked over at the lieutenant who is holding a cigar in one hand and patting around his body with the other, “Hey, uh, do you have a match?” Lieutenant Golivmiwo asks the officer, “No, I don’t smoke. Are you paying attention, Lieutenant?” “Yes sir.” he says before walking up to another officer, “You got a match?” he asks again, before proceeding to ask nearly every officer on the platform until someone finally has a lighter and helps him light his cigar. He then walks around the scene, observing the outline of the body before squatting down next to it. He turns to look at the officer that had been speaking to him, “Hey er uh, you don’t happen to have the bullet do you?” “No!” he exclaims, “I knew you weren’t listening.” he says with a sigh, “Well uh, I think I may have found it.” The officer looks at him in disbelief, “What? Where?” he says and two other officers join him in walking over to where the lieutenant is. “You see that little hole in the floorboards there,” he says while gesturing to the hole with his cigar, “If you look closely you can see splintering around the hole and at the right angle you can see a glint of what looks like metal deeper in the hole.” “How did we miss this?” says the officer in disbelief, “I don’t know sir, you tell me.” he says with a smile, “Can someone from ballistics try and figure out where the bullet may have been fired from before we analyze it?” he says to other officers around him. From there the lieutenant gets up and hums the old nursery rhyme, This Old Man, to himself as he walks off and seemingly inspects the horizon from the platform.
  11. July 15, 1423 New Zoradia, Zoran 11:30 AM Overtime The streets were packed with people from across the country gathered in the capital to hear the news to be announced by the queen. News channels were interviewing politicians and Ministers to try and get some clue as to what news the queen is going to announce only to receive commentary on the occasion and the political situation of the country without any real answer. All noise from the crowd started to die down as soon as Queen Adsila began walking onto the stage to stand behind the podium, “Good morning, today is a momentous occasion for the country. Since the defeat of the Corpocracy, the country has had a provisional government organizing the reconstruction and governance of the nation, but today that has come to an end. On this day, a new constitution for the Zoranian government has been ratified and an official government has been established for the people of Zoran.” The crowd roared with cheers and shouting at the news, a feeling of hope filled the streets of New Zoradia as the people felt confident in the future of their country for the first time in years. Adsila soon continued, “The entire constitution can be found online and it will be distributed to the press at the end of this event. With the ratification of the constitution, it is my pleasure to announce that elections to the dikahnawadvsdi aninotlvsgi iyunadai (National Council of Lawmakers) shall begin in a few months! Details on elections and voting can be found on the Office of Election’s website and election officials shall be visiting various communities and providing information sessions on voting and supervising registration for the upcoming elections.” The roaring increased with intensity at this news and the crowd began chanting the queen’s name. “It has been a tumultuous few years filled with uncertainty and pain, but now I can say that we are firmly on a path towards a new dawn for Zo-” That was when a bang echoed through the streets followed by Adsila falling to the ground. Raspberry Berets and other security ran to the body of the queen as terrified screams filled the air and panic spread like wildfire through the crowd. Police began to try and quell the crowd, trying to control the tide of people to reduce risk of injury in the crowd. The queen’s body was quickly carried off and the hope that once hung over the nation was now dimmed as the nation worried about the fate of the Adsila. Meanwhile in a distant hotel room, a man packed up their rifle and hid it in the room service cart and continued on with his disguise. He didn’t think it would go so smoothly but apparently he was wrong, all he had to do now was hide the rifle and keep a low profile until he could safely leave the country. After going through a few more rooms, he went down to the staff room, took the case out of the cart, and walked out of the backdoor. He then tossed the case into the dumpster and removed his gloves. He then walked a few blocks before tossing the gloves into another dumpster along the way. While he knew it was likely sloppy, he was confident that the law enforcement would be competent enough to link it all to him. If I get through this, there will be no doubts in Tanamara Tsinohewu’s mind that I am worth my fee. New Zoradia, Zoran 12:00 AM Overtime Yenuha Aditsi, General Waholi, Director Soyohata, Interior Minister Yonaguska A’ama, and city police chief Ahuludegi A’gakohdi push past members of the press as they make their way to Adsila’s house to discuss recent events. “We will not be answering questions right now.” Waholi says as he shoves the door closed with a grunt. “How could we let this happen!?” Yenuha exclaims, “Did the Royal Guard and the Raspberry Berets not scout the area a week in advance and station people on the rooftops!?” “Of course we did!” replied Yonaguska, “No one reported any suspicious activity during the speech so how this gunman was able to pull off the shot is beyond me!” “Do you think it was a foreign power? The commie fujansk perhaps?” asked Waholi, dabbing his head with a handkerchief, “The fujansk rank last on the list of possible suspects.” answered Soyohata, “Hell, I would suspect the Giovannilandians before the fujansk. But we have not had any reports or warning of any kind that would point to an assassination attempt. It is too early to start pointing fingers until we get more details on the crime scene.” “Agreed,” began Yenuha, “Yonaguska, have all transportation in and out of the city closed off and ground all flights in the country until we find the person behind this. Start investigating things ASAP and get guards around the Queen’s hospital room.” Yonaguska nodded and started making the necessary calls while Chief A’gakohdi cleared his throat, “Ah yes, Chief A’gakohdi. Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about you.” said Yenuha while having actually completely forgotten about the city’s police chief, “We could use your men’s help in blocking traffic in and out of the city.” “That’s a given, sir, but might I offer our best detective to help in this investigation?” said Ahuludegi, “Umm, sure. We need as much help as we can get.” “Will do, sir.” he then goes off to radio into the station leaving Waholi and Yenuha alone at the entrance of the house. “What would you like the military to do, Yenuha?” “Nothing, we don’t need the civilians to be panicking any more than they are now.” “Are you sure? Not even martial law?” “Especially not martial law. And do not go anywhere near the press! Leave them to me.” Yenuha says before heading on to their office while Waholi glared at him as he left. He turned his gaze to the door where the press awaits, the gears in his head turning as he thought about what he could gain from the opportunity.
  12. New Zoradia, Zoran 13 April 1423 Adsila’s Office 9:00 AM Overtime Adsila scowled at Markarius's letter before tearing it up and aggressively throwing it into the overflowing recycle bin. Poor quality, what does he know about military aircraft. Everyone is against me these days, I should have just kept to myself like this the who- A loud knock comes from the door, drawing Adsila’s bloodshot eyes to glare at the door, “Go away!” she yells, The knock becomes louder this time and a voice booms through the door, “Your Majesty!” proclaims the voice, “We demand an audience!” “You will get an audience when I have time, now go away!” On the other side of the door, Yenuha and the other ministers looked at each other before giving a nod to Waholi who proceeded to try and kick open the door only to hurt their leg in the process. Yenuha rolled their eyes as they opened the door like a normal person and marched inside followed by the other ministers. “Are you deaf? I s-” “We know what you said, your Majesty, but I’m afraid we cannot allow you to continue driving this country into the ground.” He pulls the letter out from his internal suit pocket and places it on the desk, staring Adsila down as he does. Adsila frowns but takes the letter and proceeds to read it, To our dear Queen Adsila, In the three years since the end of the revolution, you have proven yourself to be a brave and competent leader that has inspired many to follow the example you have set. Yet your behavior as of late has brought your ability to lead into question amongst us, your ministers.Your recent irrational and hostile behavior is putting this country at risk as you proceed to follow down a path that will isolate us from our allies and threaten the livelihoods of millions of Zoranians. As a result, to uphold our oath as ministers of the state, we demand that you temporarily back away from your duties as queen to prioritize your mental wellbeing and take a break. This decision was not made lightly but we cannot stand by as you proceed to follow a course of action that will certainly do more harm than good for our country In your absence, we will take care of your duties collectively until you return with a note from a therapist that states that your condition is acceptable to return to stately duties. Should you not comply with our demands, we will refuse to continue our duties and bring work in our ministries to a halt. Adsila stared at the letter, shocked at the actions her ministers are taking. Her instinct reaction was to brand them all as traitors but she instead took a moment to think about her actions the past few days and began to look at the state of her office. The usually tidy and somewhat organized space looked as though a hurricane had occurred within it. Books lay scattered across the room, papers randomly lying about, some knocked over furniture, it all made her realize just how out of control she has let herself become. She sighed and let the letter fall onto her desk, “I-I guess I have been…” “Problematic?” finished Ministress Wakusa, “Yes,” began Adsila, “I thought that by going my own way I could do a lot of good…yet instead I have embarrassed myself and the nation.” “Adsila, what event caused this? Soyohata told us about the decrypted message but we don't understand how that has caused you to act so strangely.” said Ministress Lanesa, “Let’s just say…a friend who I believed to have been dead for the past three year is actually alive and that made me question a lot that has been going on. This pushed me over the edge and you saw what happened. I’m sorry for all the issues I have caused and I-I will comply with your demands. But first, we need to set things ri-” “You will get ready for your vacation,” began Yenuha, “we will take care of sorting out this whole Kalmach arms deal affair. I will call up Cambria and Nieubasria to discuss the situation in a meeting and pursue a different course of action and Dr. Quadala will assist in finding you a therapist to your liking.” Adsila nodded but before getting up from her desk, she passed an inspecting gaze over Yenuha, seeing something in him that she had not seen before. “Very well, you all have given me confidence that the nation will be in good hands while I am away.” She says as she gets up and walks towards the door, “And I believe I may have found someone who may be a good candidate for the first Prime Minister of Zoran.” Everyone was surprised by the statement but Adsila made no other comment on it besides a singular smirk before walking out of the office. Dr. Quadala soon followed after her and the ministers quickly got to work on managing the country's affairs. Yenuha felt a burden had been lifted from him, relieved that the confrontation had gone so peacefully, and proceeded to make a phone call to set up a meeting between him and the AU member states interested to discuss the Kalmach deal and propose an alternative solution he had proposed to Adsila a while ago.
  13. TRANSCRIPT Hello Zoran! I'm back from the hospital and I am happy to say that I am fine, there is no need to worry about me! I am sure lots of people were concerned about my wellbeing haha! Yeah! Hehe...anyways, I am reporting live from the RNN studio for my own health and wellbeing. So far we have seen the Zoranian Fire Birds play strong this Rugby World Cup and have seem them come out of this undefeated, so far. With a close win in yesterday's game against Cambria, 15-14, Zoran is, once again, going up against Dalimbar in the finals! This is looking like a repeat of the last world cup folks so let's see if we can repeat that result! Coach Amadahy Lvaguta has been doing a phenomenal job with the team in this competition, especially after having lost several more experienced players. She has commented before about working on team cohesion and encouraging the players to work together as a team but when asked again recently she discussed her focus on the importance of mental health and having a team meeting about three members on the team who fought in the Civil War and who suffer from PTSD. She told us that the meeting was to make other teammates aware of their condition and to help them grow closer together while working together to play the best they can without the three player's condition affecting their play style. This is a rather unique approach to addressing this sensitive topic and could become a practice adopted by other Zoranian rugby teams in the future. When asked about tomorrow's match with Dalimbar, Lvaguta commented that they will be watching how the Dalimbari played in previous matches in the world cup and work with the team to create an efficient but flexible strategy to counter them. She will also work on improving how the team played by looking at the previous matches and working with the team as a whole and the players individually to help them improve or correct some things they may have noticed. Rest assured, the team seems to be in capable hands and we will see how this all pans out in the final tomorrow! It has been rumored that Queen Adsila will be attending this game as well, while this isn't the first time that this has happened this is certainly going to put more pressure on the team to perform well as to not disappoint her in the final. However, those living in New Zoradia who have seen the queen have recently said that she appears to be wearing more black than usual. Could this be a sign of mourning? And if so, of what? Will she be wearing black at the final? Who knows! I sure don't, that you can count on. But we will see what happens at the match tomorrow against Dalimbar where we shall find the answers to these questions and see if Zoran keeps the trophy or if it falls into Dalimbari hands!
