With the loss of the Silent War, the Rose bloc has now more or less dissolved from the once powerful opposing bloc against the Syndisphere. In the wake of the aftermath, there are a few clear victors: the Syndisphere achieved a tactical victory over the opposing Paragon forces. However, it is worth noting the true victor of these events: Terminus Est.
It is the opinion of this writer that of all the participants in the Silent War, Terminus Est is the only alliance which achieved a tactical and strategic victory that now propels TEst to a position of upper tier dominance. With the destruction of Pantheon, Sparta and Alpha as competitors to the once small and reclusive force, TEst has now achieved a numerical superiority in upper tier nations following this war. There is little room for doubt that following this war, TEst intends to capitalize on its gains by compounding nation growth in light of the minimal damage received during the war. It will likely be very difficult for Pantheon and Alpha to rise to the challenge in the next global conflict.
The 168 Day War was one of the many conflicts between the Rose and Syndisphere blocs. The war itself never brought the same decisive victory as seen in the Silent War, however, it is notable in that Alpha makes its debut on the world stage. Arising from the war is the formation of Sparta as an upper tier alliance sided with Alpha, and the grudge between the Syndicate and Alpha over treaty clauses and obligations.
On April 16th, Seabasstion, then the leader of Sparta, staged an intricate military drill which faked a combat scenario with Terminus Est. This involved a number of Sparta's allies, including the dominant upper tier alliance Alpha. The military drill, along with the subsequent demilitarization following the announcement of Terminus Est on the military drill, placed Alpha and her allies in a position of unpreparedness when it was clear the Syndisphere took advantage of the situation to mobilize military and settle the grudge of the 168 Day War.
*It is now worth noting that Seabasstion, the former leader of Sparta, steps down and leaves to join Guardian.
On April 22nd, Terminus Est and the Syndicate launch an attack on Alpha. On April 23rd, in light of the rapid demobilization from the staged drill, Alpha declares it will not ask allies to join the fight. On April 26th, with minimal losses, Terminus Est leaves the conflict.
The consequences of Steve's War is most reflective in hindsight: Terminus Est quickly disposes the majority of Alpha's conventional military troops and withdraws from the conflict to avoid further losses from Alpha's nuclear stockpile, leaving The Syndicate and Alpha to incur losses of their own.
On June 13th, with Alpha's military stockpiles depleted in Steve's War, Alpha's allies are attacked by the Syndisphere in a daring blitz. With Alpha's military reserves depleted, along with the lingering lull in military readiness on the side of Paragon, the Syndisphere wins a stunning victory.
Several events happen which further benefits Terminus Est. First, Alpha has fought a prolonged war that has stretched her resources to the limits, further weakening Terminus Est's competition in the upper tier. Secondly, the surrender and break up of Sparta (another upper tier alliance which competes with Terminus Est) ultimately resulted in the expansion of Pantheon and Terminus Est's membership from upper tier nations. Thirdly, it is of note, that Terminus Est uses the NPO war to rebuild and further consolidate holdings.
The Decline of Mutuality: MDP's going out of style
The political trends in Orbis have continually pushed the limits of acceptable politics that many migrants have brought from other worlds.
The widespread implementation of paperless foreign policies, the commonly accepted white-peace endings to wars, and even the relative lack of political ostracization that occurs when an alliance fails to uphold a treaty, among other things.
Despite personal interpretation or defense of a particular alliance's actions, we can clearly point out some recent examples of the third example. We can also clearly tie in some of the motivations behind these recent examples into Individualist thought.
The most recent, being The Light Federation, refusing to uphold their mutual defense pact with UPN.
The most profound (in my memory) being The Knights Radiant refusing to uphold their mutual defense pact with NPO.
While many people may frown upon these two groups refusing to honor a document with such strict wording, I postulate that the wording itself is the cause of discontent. In our world we have individual nations who form alliances in order to further certain Individual goals such as common defense. The alliances occasionally combine forces with each other in order to further Individual goals such as the neutralization of a mutual threat. This has resulted in treaties making their way into widespread use, many of which are worded to be permanently and mutually binding.
However, alliances by nature cannot maintain mutually binding agreements. The only way such a thing can be accomplished is by merging the actual alliances, otherwise their Individual goals will never permanently align. It is therefore correct to assume that mutual defense pacts are more a propaganda statement than a practical tool of politics. The two aforementioned examples clearly demonstrate that, outside of the slighted parties (NPO and UPN), most of our world no longer recognizes the propaganda/public shame value of the mutual pact.
Hopefully this last nail in the coffin of mutually binding pacts will push us into a new era of paperless politics or, at worst, optional-only pacts that better reflect how each alliance can only ever represent their own self-interest if they hope to thrive.
Ever sense the last war we have been rebuilding our infrastructure and rebuilding our army to make it bigger and better, now we have. We used our time to come out of the last war stronger in order to excat our revenge for the sneak attacks by our cowardly oppantes and to only be beaten by a lone pirate, Mark us well Black knights not a one shall be spared as this will be a batisim by fire and blood.
Who can compare to our strength who can match to our determination? I tell you the truth no amount of pleading can shield you from my wrath and the wrath of the order that shall fallow, pray to the admin for mercy for I have non.
We are a nation, not a state. A nation is a people with shared morals, language, faith, and culture. A state is the governmental apparatus that enforces itself over a nation, or nations, in order to keep order. When those in government are the same as those who make up the nation, then peace and order reigns. When those in government comprise a different class or type of people to those who make up the majority of the nation, then the government (the state) must use force or deception to enslave a nation, or else there is anarchy.
In Xenios, the government and the people are one nation, one people. Those who are the same as us are part of our nation, and we will support them wherever they may be. Race or colour of skin is not important, as these things alone do not constitute a nation: again, we state that it is the culture, language, faith and shared morals that make a people kindred.
Xenios started as a society of people: the League of Anti-Judaizers. This is a league for those people wishing to flee this dying world - corrupted, as it is, by Talmudic practices - and establish a safe haven for sojourners. The league is established to renew and strengthen people - creating a new man: strengthening them not only physically, but also morally and spiritually. The League's name is in recognition that the main opposition to this spiritual renewal is Talmudic Judaism, a corruption of the Jewish religion founded in the Torah. Talmudic Judaism seeks to corrupt non-Jews through decadence and immorality so that they can be more easily enslaved.
Therefore, despite an apparent "isolationist" stance, the League has always been committed to fighting the evil schemes of Talmudic Jewry and their quislings worldwide, in order to free ordinary people from Jewish perversity, leading them to the light of personal salvation and renewal. We do not discriminate based on race, and so people of Jewish origin are indeed welcome to join the League, providing they thoroughly renounce the Talmudic Jewish faith.
The nation of Xenios came into existence alongside the The League of Anti-Judaizers. There is no point in saying Xenios founded the League or that the League established Xenios: those of us who joined the League became Xenioshians, and those who came to Xenios and became citizens automatically joined the League. The head of the League is the Polemarch (i.e. "War-Lord"), and he is therefore the de facto leader of Xenios, until a time comes that a more stable form of government is possible.
And why is the government in a war-ready posture? Because all about the nation of Xenios there is opposition and enemies wishing to crush us by any means possible. The underhand way in which this nation has been attacked by some, confirms Xenios' stance that Talmudic Judaism is a cowardly force, a force that hides in the shadows, and one which will do anything to prevent the spiritual growth of human beings. Xenios and the League will not be cowed by such deception. At the moment we are growing slowly, and building up military power and shoring up our defenses. Soon, the time of Xenios will come...
Inner peace through war abroad!
Now we know this was a long time coming and we do apologize for this taking so long, but we bring you here today for the long awaited interview of the empress. From an assassination attempt to gaining a new son-in-law, to divorce and to picking a new successor; this woman has gone through more than what most women would ask for and now we're going to get her personal thoughts.
Let it be known that without Liam Hiker no longer being the royal family guard dog, getting this interview had been slightly easier than with her children although the actual okay of the empress had helped. Now we do have to take in consideration the stricter checks now in place since our last interview with First Prince Ericson as for it being a bit better and not completely better.
The empress had agreed to meet us in her own private library for her interview and had dressed more casually than what anyone had seen her, which we could say shocked us. Either way let us continue.
Me: So, let us start off easy, we all can tell you've recovered remarkably from your injuries. We have to ask though, what are you're actual feelings for the incident?
Amaryllis: I was scared, nothing more, nothing less. The fear of knowing you're going to die is a big one. You think about your family and those you care about and in my case I think about those in the room who could also be in danger. I also had felt saddened that someone had felt so low that they thought killing me would fix things but also angered that financial means were also in the situation.
Me: You know some say that the situation and the recent incident involving Jason North should warrant the abolishment of the recommendation system involved in selecting members....
Amaryllis: I will stop you right there and make this clear, I do not or will I ever support abolishing the system. The system was put in place to allow those who didn't have blood connections a chance of joining the highest force within the kingdom and some have been just as or even more loyal than those who got in through blood.
Me (nodding): Well, considering that I am also good friends with a Pack member who got in through the system, I will agree with you, but tell me, do you ever think of abolishing the blood system completely?
Amaryllis: That will also not happen. The original pack members have helped established this kingdom and by allowing their descendants who wish to pick up the same sword to serve is my family's way of thanking them. With that being said, we do not allow just blood to get in as some have forgotten. We also do determine if they're prepared to take on this responsibility.
Me (nodding again): Well, this and some of other decisions you have made or supported have lead to a decline in your popularity. I have to ask, does that rattle you?
Amaryllis (sighing): It disappoints me is a better way to describe it but at same time I expected it. Mother has always taught me that if you do not have critics you're either strong-arming someone or you're just doing something wrong. That yes, while we lead our people, they are still individuals with differing opinions and passions. The best you can do then is to listen to what you have to say, see their motives, and decide from their. Sometimes you will have to stay firm in what you decided and sometimes you will have to compromise. Take my daughter's marriage. She's a capitalist princess about to marry the chairman of a communist country. Everyone wanted me to disown her and cut ties with the country completely but I couldn't do that.
For starters, the political impact on an international scale would have been great and I would have possibly isolated our kingdoms and caused unnecessary rivalries. But I also had to consider my daughter's feelings. In the beginning, she was only introducing Tenchi to our way of life and culture, and it lead to something more. Besides, he was a nice young man who treated my daughter right. How could I isolate her for falling in love? And so I showed my support and didn't back down despite the people's opinion. My only fear is that my daughter now has to look over her shoulder within her own kingdom.
Me: Heartbreaking indeed, and it does lead me to my question. One of those decisions that has affected your popularity is the decision of having First Prince Ericson become your successor. While most support this choice, meaning those who do not want First Princess Lucia in the position, some called you a hypocrite as you could have shown true support of your daughter by having her become the next empress. Others say this is you simply playing favorites. And others say this is the slap to the face of our traditions. I have to ask, what are your opinions on these statements and what were you thinking when you picked your son?
Amaryllis: If I have selected Lucia, the target on her back would have become even larger as with any children she will have. I do believe her a capable leader and she would have been a fine empress, but I also do fear for her safety and also if she has the capabilities of making the most difficult decisions and those decisions will come.
First Prince Ericson, I will not lie, he was my only son and as such I did coddle him more than I should have, but that does not mean I picked him because he is my favorite. We forget his prowess in both military and foreign affairs and he has a more stern approach than even I or his sisters could obtain, which could be for a good thing in the future. In the end, it is my duty as the empress to pick the best for our people and as such I will gladly break tradition with it.
Now the interview had to be cut then due to an urgent matter coming up for the empress and as such she had given us access to certain areas while we waited for her return. As to the matter of the matter, we never heard although it could have something to do with that house that's being built on the palace grounds (rumors say it is meant to be a home for Lucia and her husband and possible children) or even possibly the rumors we hear of the royal advisory board becoming more hostile with the empress.
The empress would return a few hours later and have dinner brought in before we continue with our interview.
Me: This topic has not been as infamous as the others, but some would wish to know about your divorce with Emperor Ajax. The shock that comes with this divorce is that you two seemed to so deeply in love and you're also members of the Crystalists faith which is against divorce. We have to ask, what truly happened to cause the break up?
Amaryllis: Well, it is only simply growing distance. Ajax and I just couldn't regain that footing again and so we believed instead of putting on a show we decided to end it. And if you're wondering, yes, it has severely damaged our standing in the Cyrstalism faith. Let's say I have not been invited to speak at the main temple in quite some time.
Me: That must be rough. The faith had gained its popularity through the family and more specifically your grandmother, don't you think you deserve an exception?
Amaryllis: If anything else, I'd be disappointed if they exempted me. Empress or not, I did vow dedication to this faith and I broken one of its doctrines. Would it not be hypocritical for them to pick and chose on these subjects?
Me: Well, that could make sense, but don't you find it insulting that they now call for Crystalism to become the kingdom's official religion?
Amaryllis: I do find the timing upsetting, but I won't say insulting. But either way, I won't allow it, and no I'm not saying this because I'm bitter. Wintery hasn't had an official religion to avoid tension with the differing faiths.
Me (nodding): Alright then, back to your love life to end this on a happier note. Is there someone special in your life to become the next emperor?
Amaryllis (laughing): Unfortunately not going to tell anyone.
And there you have it. We hope this does answer some questions the people has had while also providing insight into the mind of our empress. We do wish you a good night.

The Confederacy of Independent Systems becomes member of The Order of the White Rose.
With the Head of State, General Grievous, applying the C.I.S to be a member of OWR, CNN is led to believe that a new age of peace and stability is dawning on the Confederacy. Grievous, who has an extensive background in leadership and diplomacy, is well known for his efforts for prosperity.
Shortly after the announcement of The C.I.S's accepted membership into the OWR, a conference amongst Grievous and the Senate in Utapau was held to discuss the announcement.
After the private cabinet briefing, a Confederate T-Series Tactical Droid was made available to make a comment. His official statement read as follows:
"I first need to apologize for the absence of the Head of State, he is currently very busy, but I can confirm a peaceful transition between administrations was obtained. I am sure if Grievous was here, he would comment on how it is truly a great honor to be a member of The Order of the White Rose, and how he is excited about the future and what it will hold for the people of the Confederacy."
An excerpt from Dawn of the Master-Fowl: A History of The Nestingland at War, by Nurwoo.
'... As the eyes of the Superior State looked ever outward in their quest for dominion, it was inevitable that members of the lesser species would object. During the First Great War of Herringsraum, as members of the Eastern Expansion Fin marched their way towards victory, the armies of the Western Expansion Fin were checked in a violent counterpush by the combined forces of two separate empires. In an attempt to break the deadlock and continue their assault, the western front engaged in a midnight assault across the five hundred mile battleline. Encountering heavy resistance, only the members of the XXVII Krakkian Penguinaries were able to breach the enemy lines, and push into enemy territory. Due to atmospheric interference, the communication lines used by the XXVII were unusable, and a stabilization of the breach was unobtainable. Advancing without support, the XXVII advanced over thirty-seven kilometers within hostile territory. By the time the comm lines were reusable, the enemy lines had re-stabilized, trapping the XXVII. Orders from the Nestingland High Command were simple: Hold their position at all costs. Hoping that the enemy would divert more troops from the front to deal with the Master-Fowl deep within their lines, the Nestingland Department of War ordered an emergency mobilization of reserve troops to aid in the push westward. Due to a fire in the NeDeW command centre, these reserve troops were delayed for eight days, from 20 April to 28 April. The XXVII held out, without support or supplies, against an enemy that outnumbered them over sixty-to-one. When the XIII and VI Krakkian Penguinaries finally reached the last known coordinates of the XXVII, they found no survivors. It is hard to calculate the exact killcount of the XXVII, as the relief element had to retake the site from the enemy, but evidence shows that each Penguinary fired every round they had, many of which were found still clutching their close-quarter combat weapons. Finleader Hurkee, the active General for the XXVII, was found buried under a pile of dead sub-fowl, his ceremonial Baton of Command snapped in half and buried in the eyes of an enemy combatant. An audio recording, made by an unnamed communication officer of the XXVII and dated the night of the 27th, highlights the determination showed by the brave members of the doomed Penguinary force. In it, Hurkee is assumed to be addressing his troops during a lull in the enemy assaults.
" This is it, waddlers. We're low on rounds, out of rations. We're down to less than a tenth of our number, and reinforcements aren't coming. We've held out longer than believed possible. Our command assumes us dead, our enemies desire to make that so. But have they yet to beat us? After seven days of constant war, we've held our position. After seven days of hell, we are still standing. Soldiers, Penguinaries of the Twenty-seventh: Can you hear them, our enemies advancing in the night? Listen to their trepidation! Hear the fear, as they know they march to their doom! We are lucky, to be considered already dead. Our fate is sealed, we know what will befall us this night. Our Destiny is clear, our Fate manifest. We will hold our lines to the last. When our enemies ask what the worth of a Penguin is, they will remember the Twenty-Seventh! Penguinaries, to your stations! Our Time has come! Hold, for Emperor and Nestingland!"
Later tactical assessments of the Stand of the XXVII show that without their diversion of enemy troop assets, the probability of successful expansion along the western front was statistically infeasible. In memoriam of the brave members of the XXVII, the city of Nestholm was later established on the site of their last stand. The brave colonists of Nestholm were interesting in their own right, but that is a story for a later time...'
Hello and welcome to HNS 24/7, Hungadada's most trusted news network.
Onwards with today's news!
Alpha Complex DSDH: A newly built headquarters for the DSDH was completed yesterday. The DSDH moved into the new HQ and has begun operations. Known as Alpha Complex, the DSDH HQ cost $200,000,000 and is built on 200 acres of land. The DSDH HQ features state-of-the-art technology and is built to themes of the future. Renowned Hungadadian architect Sir John Mackenzie was in charge of designing not only the DSDH HQ but also HIS HQ nearby. Both buildings are operational. Alpha Complex is stated to be one of the most secure complexes in Hungadada, and mixes traditional security with the latest improvements in security.
Alpha Complex also features its own food courts, relaxation centers, gyms, post offices, parks, and more. The new complex stresses clean energy, and does not rely on carbon based fuels for energy, instead using a fusion reactor and solar panels.
Speaking about security, the IHA and the IHAF maintain bases nearby. We got the oppurtunity to interview Alpha Complex Director Rowan Guild, and we asked him a few questions.
HNS: Why was the decision made to move to Alpha Complex?
Director Guild: The Emperor, in consultation with his cabinet, made the executive decision to move the DSDH HQ to a bigger, better location. The old building was getting too small for our enlarging workforce, and so the decision was made to build a complelty new headquarters. This complex should fulfill our needs for the next 100 years. Alpha Complex oozes new technology, and gives us better skils to do the things we do.
HNS: We're hearing rumours about a "Beta Complex" being built. What can you say?
Director Guild: Although I cannot go into too much detail, I can say that a new agency HCESA has been created, and it will replace CEI.
HNS: What is your role in the day-to-day function of Alpha Complex?
Director Guild: My role mainly is to manage function of Alpha Complex. All DSDH operations will be managed by DSDH Director Sir Aaron Bach and his staff. My staff and myself will ensure that Alpha Complex functions smootly, and any issues are taken care of.
HNS: There has been no comment from HIS regarding their new HQ. Are they currently occupying the other building?
Director Guild: I am not authorised to comment on that matter, however HIS is currently functioning from a new HQ.
HNS: Director Guild, thank you for your time.
HAA Founded: Hungadada has founded the Hungadada Aerospace Administarion, which will take over aviation duties from the DSDH Civillian Wing. The HAA will also work on beginning a space program, in order to bring Hungadada to space. It is widely accepted that Manufacturing Complex A3 will be used as a factory to build spacecraft. The HAA estimates that it can get an astronaut beyond the moon in 5 years. Rhino Escapes Zoo: A rhino has reportedly escaped its ensclosure at Amber City Zoo, and may be wandering the streets of Amber. Residents are asked to remain inside and out of sight, and lock doors if possible. The rhino, which goes by the name of "Tammy" is heavily pregnant, and is expected to give birth in a few days. Zoo keepers, emergency services and volunteers are on the lookout.
Anyone who sees the rhino should call the emergency hotline: 555-987-123.
Rare Birds Found Dead: 2 Forest Owlets have been found dead. Park Ranger Jones found the two birds while on patrol. These brids are critcally endangered. A criminal case has now been opened at Gull Prosecutors Office. Bullet holes were found in the bodies of the owls. Anyone with relevant information is asked to contact their local police station. A suspect has been arrested, after feathers and blood were found on his person.
That will end today's broadcast.
Elections have recently started in Goand, a country that most pundits have agreed has been neglect at the hands of the Partido Conserbatibo (Conservative Party), with numerous raids by renegade nations, multiple alliance changes, a disastrous isolationist policy that has seen left Goand's foreign involment (which used to be high) at an all-time low (it is said that the Prime Minister, Helena Stratsberg, does not get briefed as much on foreign issues as her predecessor, Dylan Pascua). Multiple vote-of-no-confidence motions from the opposition Social Democratic Party have been blocked by the ruling Conservatives, to the chagrin of most opposition parties and even some Conservative MPs, a faction of the party known as the Wild Childs, led by Frederico Canto, a former Defence Minister. The group has threatened multiple times to bolt out of the party to join the more right-wing Bagong Goand (New Goand) party. Anna Fredericson, one of the MPs who represents Allo township in Bucidnon-Alsacoff, explained their opposition to Stratsberg. 'We don't want some idiot running the country', she said in Filipino.
While the Conservatives were mired in infighting, the Social Democrats and another minority party, the Centrist Liberal Party, have been relatively stable. The Social Democrats, headed once again by former Prime Minister Dylan Pascua, are in fighting form once again, after a few years of their own problems. Pascua, who is now 46, hopes to take back control of Parliament. 'The Conservatives have consistently shown that they are unable to form a united front to serve the people of Goand', he answered in an ambush interview near his house in Adlon. The Centrist Liberal Party, a relatively new party, have also had a strong showing in recent polls, have also been relatively stable. Led by Stennis Rickbourg, son of notorious hotelier Jacques Rickbourg, they have presented themselves as a moderate alternative to the two traditional parties. Other parties registered for elections is the far-left-wing Communist Party of Goand, the right-wing Partido Bagong Goand (New Goand Party), the classical liberal Libertarian Party, and the fascist New Unity Party.

TERROR ATTACKS IN PORT ROYALTY: Hungadada is reeling from an enormous terrorist attack on the nation's capital. 310 people are dead after bombs exploded in Port Royalty. Many victims succumbed to their injuries overnight. The ILO terrorist group has claimed responsibility. The Imperial Palace, Imperial Palace Press Grounds, Hungadada News Service Headquarters, Hungadada News Service Regional Reporting Center, Port Royalty Naval Base, and Port Royalty Energy Authority Building (plus 4 power stations) were attacked.
Official figures state that 24 bombs went off during a 2 hour period. Many bombs were packed into crowded areas. The Imperial Palace was heavily damaged, with the Emperor and his cabinet evacuated. HNS HQ and HNS RRC were both attacked, thus causing a network blackout. At least 43 journalists were killed after 3 bombs exploded on the Imperial Palace Press Grounds. The Naval Base was moderately damaged after gunfire and a bomb exploded outside the security perimeter. 4 power stations went offline as they were attacked.
Hungadadian officials have no idea as to the motive of the attack. Shortly after these attacks, The Netherlands, one of Hungadada's allies also fell victim to a terrorist attack.

It is by Repadatari Edatari that the peoples of Meonesia maintain the ability of being ruled by a small aristocracy consisting of three families, the eldest of which are the triumvirs (with exception to the original three triumvirs who maintain their position) in the Meonesian Royal Triumvirate. In the year 1393, a Meonesian woman named Repadatari Edatari explained a possible governmental system called the Edatari system. This system, with modification, is the system in use currently by Meonesia.
The Meonesian Triumvirate was set up after the swift invasion of Meonesia by the Kingdom of the Evenstar led nobly by King Thalmor. The democratic system was abolished and replaced by a monarchy, led by Queen Orqan Iaos. However, Iaos realized she lacked confidence in herself to represent and lead the entire country on here own, thus setting up the royal triumvirate, needing the consent of all three triumvirs in order to enact major decision. This was, as said by Iaos, "A way to easily balance out the power of the government while still having the supreme monarchy system however with modification".
However, the Meonesian governing body does not truly consist purely of three people. While the triumvirate makes many major decisions, a council of persons each appointed by the triumvirs, called the Royal Council, ensures to act within their departments, as well as advise the triumvirate should it be required. The Royal Council lacks the ability to create laws, and only is able to act on other actions or upon their own. Each councilperson has a separate appointment and dedication. For example, one may be responsible for ensuring the safety of Meonesia by moving troops and units and ordering their action. The addition of the Royal Council is the main difference between the current Meonesian governmental system and the Edatari System. The original system set up by Edatari lacked the Royal Council and determined that none should have power but the exclusive aristocracy of the Triumvirate.
Because of the need to have three triumvirs, each family, or house, is prevented from merging families through marriage or by other means. This is to avoid two royal houses merging into a single house and causing the need of the development of another house. In the event that the line of a house ends, the other two triumvirs must unanimously agree to the appointment of another house and triumvir. Should they be indecisive in this matter, one of the Royal Council will be appointed, by vote of the Royal Council. However, the event of even the end of the line of a house is extremely unlikely.
In order to show dedication to their nation, anyone in the three royal families must serve in the Meonesian military, and are required to maintain the rank of Private and receive no exclusive treatment. This must be done for two years, once they reach the age of eighteen. Should they be unwilling to do this, they will be exiled, and permanently banned from entering the country. This is all to prove that they are worthy and noble enough to lead such a nation.
For a person to be a member of the Royal Council, similar action must be taken. A nominee for Royal Council must have served in the Meonesian military for at least one year.
There are four main buildings in which the Meonesian government operates:
The Palace of the Triumvirate, the permanent residence of the three royal families
The Royal Council Building, which holds the Royal Council offices and meeting rooms
The Qasquild, which holds many offices of smaller divisions of the Meonesian Royal Council
Meokraud National Fort, which holds military offices, while also being the takeoff and landing runway for Meonesian government officials as well as other nations' diplomats and/or leaders
