  5. Unification Day His Majesty, King Raimond, Ruler of The Federation of Laurentia. On this day, 96 years ago. Our nation, through war and bloodshed, united into the Federation. A Federation of Unity, Strength, Honor, and Valor. Our Nation has and will always be a nation that strives not for the betterment of itself, but for its people. The European Continent is home to a great deal of culture and history. Moving beyond petty squabbling, political ambitions, and one's wealth, we emerged a powerful nation, an equal nation, and a nation that was run on efficiency, love, and compassion. God bless Laurentia, God bless our people, God bless our allies, and may God keep us in an eternal life. Throughout the early morning, the Royal Armed Forces paraded across the city. With the Royal Family, President, Prime Ministers, Members of the Royal Cabinet and The Emperor of Hungadada, King of Sweden and C.C. of Britannia present. The Military also unveiled its new equipment from the Navy's LSW Laser Weapon and Protytpe Aerial Tornado ECR. In the air, the Luftwaffe with their Westfals fighters and IQ Bombers left behind streaks of Black, Red, and Yellow. The President took the podium and began her speech. My compatriots, citizens, special guests, and honorable allies. Laurentia is not only celebrating 96 years of unification today. Today we celebrate our resolve and unwillingness to bend to fear and tyranny. The attacks on our nation yesterday were not a simple attack. They were mean to cause pain and grief, to dismay us from spending the next day as something greater than ourselves. On this day, we are not Norwegians, Winterfell, Witten, Flemish. We are not the President or a Prince. We are Laurentians, and this day shows who we are. Not what were assigned to us, or we worked upon. But what we all have been born into, a society that takes care of it's own. Where we are as strong as our weakest link. Allow us to enjoy the day, to spend with family and friends. To thank those who fought and still fight for our unification. Es Lebte Federation, Es Lebte King,Es Lebte the people of Laurentia. Throughout the day, the Nation as filled with widespread partying and celebration. Fireworks, Military Parades and Showcases, Beer and Cheeses, Deserts and gifts filled the streets. President Laurens visited the Embassies of the United States, Britannia, Hungadada, and Sweden to present the Ambassadors, their staffs, and their families gifts ranging from sweets, clothing, and other gifts. The Laurentian News Agencies and Government offices will return to work on July 25th.

    Laurentia 24 The Flemish Republican Army bombs the Laurentian Financial District. Killing over 100 people, injuring 200+. A makeshift bomb exploded during the early morning of trading in Berlin. The Ministry of Interior and Civil Defense said that Police and Gendarmerie units are on sight, and that medical personnel and EMS are providing medical attentions to hundreds of wounded. The attack comes the day before the annual Unification Day celebrations take place across the nation. A day where families, friends, and colleagues spend all the time with each other. The attack also came after a possible chemical threat was suspected at various apartments. Interior Minister Julia Schütz spoke at the scene "The Government of Laurentia condemns this vile attack against the civilian population. The attack did not disrupt trading and the Financial market in Berlin. However, the attack has killed at least 164 people, injuring an estimated 242 with 64 missing. We stand strong in the face of such attacks, and that the peace we have achieved not be derailed by fanatics." President Laurens is set to visit the bomb site with Flemish National Party leader Wolf Smidt (New England Market Bombing January 31st, 1987) Not since 1987 has The Flemish Republican Army attacked a major civilian hub. In 1987, The FRA blew up the New England Market in New Haven. Killing over 300 and injuring hundreds more. With the FRA disbanded in 1992, the Flemish Cell's in the highly ethical Flemish region of Laurentia remained active in their people's break away from Laurentia. The Flemish group presides in a minority of Laurentians in the province of Klause. Since the late 50s, the Laurentian Self Defense Force deployed to quell the uprising and fighting. Over the years, violence and countless civilians live cost the government billions of Kronens and in 1992 the Peace Deal was made between Laurentia, The FRA, and Local Government. The FRA also was a major military and political force in the Republic of Flanders, fighting a Laurentian led counter-insurgency for almost 6 decades. Since then, the Flemish Republican Party was formed to represent a new face of the FRA. A peaceful one and they successfully won a majority in Parliment in 2001, 2007, and even in 2013. (Laurentian Military Deploy to Klaus) (1986) (Check Point in Klaus after the assination of the Deputy Govenor) (1980) The Laurentian Armed Forces pulled out of Klause in 1995, giving the local police and Province Government to handle the security of their region. In the northern regions, an ethnic group of Witten also resides as a minority. In fact, President Laurens comes from the ethnic minority of Norwegians. In the early 1700s, King Caralis invaded the Winterfell and Witten, before trading off his Danish possessions to acquire the Norwegian ports on the coast of Laurentia. As such, the Kingdom of Flanders quickly invaded the Laurentian Winterfell, promoting the 5-Year War in which Laurentia struck a decisive victory and annexed the Flemish Territories near Winterfell. The territories were of great tension between Laurentia and Flanders, however when Laurentia fell into civil war. The Flemish Territories attempted to cecced, to no avail. However, in the drawing of the Federal Provinces, The region was placed in Klause, with a minority Laurentian population. roughly 76% of the population in Klause is Flemish, with the remainder being the Laurentians. On top of this, the local government was in the capital Klaus which had a high Laurentian ethnic group. Tensions boiled and an internal conflict between the local Flemish and Laurentians ensured. (FRA Soldier stands guard in the Flemish district) (1984) (Flemish Sympathizer stands in the way as Laurentian Soldiers fire at a nearby school) (Iconic Photo 1982) The conflict continued, what was once a small argument became a full blown warzone. The region suffered thousands of deaths, and even more injured. Kidnappings and bombings were rampant, and the Provincial Government was unable to counter the Flemish Republican Army. Soon, the FRA in Flanders began sending troops and ammunition promoting the Laurentian Military to invade the border with Flanders, and to send in combat units to stop the FRA. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We can now confirm that the death toll has risen to 171. The Interior Ministry has said at least 20 foreign nationals were killed including 2 children. Minister Shlütz has said that Laurentian Soldiers in reserve have been called from their leaves to assist the Gendarmerie in patrolling the streets of Laurentia. Prime Minister Korczak is set to address an emergency session of The Laurentian Congress of Parliment, and President Laurens will be holding an emergency cabinet meeting with Crown Prince Raimond. Queen Jean-Marie and Crown Prince Raimond visited the bomb site, meeting first responders and victims. The Queen promised quick resolve and reasonable response. More news will be updated when available

  9. In 1918, a civil war erupted in the Kingdom of Laurentia, after continued conflict between republicans and the monarch failed to be handled diplomatically. King Marcus Castle quickly quelled the rebellion. However, after their leaders were publicly executed the rebellion became a guerrilla campaign. For 3 years the guerrilla campaign continued to attack government positions and offices. In threat of losing control, the Royal Family formally reprised Marcus Castle’s role as King and replaced him with Princess Marie-Thérèse Vallotton. After Castle abdicated, he was indicted in a royal court. However his 5 year sentence was confined to the Royal Island of Saint Marie, a luxurious royal retreat. Queen Marie-Thérèse began a peaceful settlement with the various rebel groups such as People’s Liberation Front, Heinkles Brigade, and The Republican Front, however leaving out more extreme rebel groups like The National Army, and Laurentian Liberation Army. With the moderator groups, the Queen formulated the New Haven Accords. In which all groups unilaterally demilitarized, submitted their weapons to the government and agreed to not continue the war against the Nation. In return, the Government opened its armed forces to rebels who sought to continue their service for their nation and allocated 20 seats in the new parliament to the rebel groups for the first general election. The government promised an election in 1925 and would cease targeting the rebels signing the agreement. Additionally a clause granted all Generals and King Castle a royal pardon and similarly, all rebel leaders would be granted a royal pardon except those who committed grave crimes such as Colonel Hitmlit, General Zagon, and Major Dlifso who were arrested in 1931. Although it was criticized from both rebels and loyalists, the agreement was settled and the Federation of Laurentia was formed. The Monarch praised Marie-Thérèse for her cunning diplomacy and steadfast approach. In 1924, the Monarch announced it would revise the New Haven Accords, in which they demanded that the articles of power be redrawn. They postponed and election until 1930 citing lack of commitment by several rebel groups, continued fighting between the LLF and the Royal Armed Forces, as well as other reasons. The capital Berlin and other major cities such as Vredesville and New Haven which generally aligned with the monarch quickly denounced the act and began protesting in mass. The Queen continued to promise that there would be no more delays and that the election would happen whether an agreement was made or not. In 1926, the leaders of The People’s Workers Party and Democratic Party met with the Queen to re-establish the powers of government the future of the nation. Between 1924-1927 the new constitution was drafted, until the process was held off in 1927 because of escalating violence between the Worker’s Liberation Army, attacks mounted, and the Military was in a second anti-guerrilla campaign against the Workers Front. Whilst the PWP denied any part in it, its leaders continued to finance individuals in the Workers Front. In 1928, the Monarch arrested 12 party leaders and launched operations in neighboring nations capturing their local Worker’s Party leaders. Over 342 people were arrested, and the Monarch authorized interrogation. Within weeks the Workers Front was dealt several catastrophic blows until they official laid down arms and surrendered to the Armed Forces of Laurentia. Devastated by almost 2 years of war, the nation struggled to move forward. Loyalists, Republicans, and Rebels continued to fight over compromise, and damage caused left the nation in a higher economic tailspin. Unable to keep their soldiers in check, the PLF withdrew from the agreement. With the withdrawal of the PLF, other rebel groups began to waiver. In Mid July, Queen Marie-Thérèse Vallotton had died, and without an official heir, it seemed the monarch would face internal infighting and be weakened. The death of the Queen also raised morale in rebels that they began to arm themselves to fight the monarchy once again. However, hours later, Princess Elizabeth Marie-Anne Vallotton was named the heir to the thrown and became queen. Under Queen Elizabeth Marie-Anne, the Monarch quickly responded. On July 18st, several bombers bombed the PLF Headquarters, the following day another detachment of bombers bombed PLF bunkers and warehouses, the Ground Forces attacked the People’s Party, a political headquarters and captured PLF General Majiso. The Navy raided coastal warehouses owned by the PLF, and by August 8th the PLF had lost all momentum in any counter attack and their Chairman officially offered to rejoin the New Haven Accords. However, the Queen denied his motion, and after 2 more days of fighting the Chairman surrendered and would agree to the new accords drawn by the Queen. With her campaign such a success, the Monarch began to draw up New Accords. The Saint Marie Accords were created and In 1929, the Monarch held an early election to gather a parliament to ratify the Accords. The new accords outlined the political powers of the 3 Branches of Government, The role of the Monarch, and the Municipal Governments. Due to the high success of the Monarch in the 11 Day war, the Monarch retained a high level of power. The council met in April and elected Mario de Roux as the nations first Prime Minister. With parliamentary elections in order, the 630 members of the Nationalversammlung met. Unanimously the agreement was signed, and the Federation of Laurentia was created. The government was divided into 3 branches, the Government headed by the President, a bicaramel Parliament headed by the Prime Minister, and the Royal Courts run by the Chief Justices. Federal Municipals, run by Governors, Mayors, and the Municipal Government. The Monarch, who would be the oversight to the branches of Government. In 1930 Luukas Makitalo and his Konservative Partei swept the election. Winning 64% of the vote, Makitalo became the first president. His asked Prime Minister de Roux to continue his tenure as Prime Minister. However, being int he international playing field required allies and the first of whom would be Hungadada. Since President Makitalo, a Special Relationship has existed between both nations. However President Makitalo's term was riddled witha weak economy, high levels of poverty, and the Laurentian Free Republic Forces was not laying down it's arms. Laurentia's first President was Luukas Makitalo. Under Makitalo, Laurentia became recognized by Hungadada and President Makitalo established the Special Relationship with their Emperor. The President started his presidency with a weak economy, high poverty, and continued conflict between Republican Malitias. Working diligently, The Konservative Nationalversammlung and Senat passed legislature promoting economic growth. Including increased spending to the military. The Republican Militias was defeated and its army disbanded and leaders arrested. Although his presidency was short lived, he paved the way for his successor Aku Järvelä to become the nations second President. Järvelä led the nation into promising economic growth and a strong defense force. The Laurentian Self-Defense Force had slowly rebuilt itself, with extensive aid from Sicilia and Hungadada. However, the Konservative Partei von Laurentia lost momentum and in 1950. In 1950, Edward Hallenberg, brother of Charlie Hallenberg leader of the Sozialistische Partei swept the 1950s election. Under Hallenberg, the government expanded social affairs. With the establishment of the Ministry of Social Affairs, The administration swept in legislature giving 3 months of paid maternity care, expanding Health Care, and establishing a Citizens Monetary Fund that held funds for financing self-projects, education, and training. However, under Hallenberg. The Flemish Republic successfully invaded Laurentia, decimating the Selbstverteidigungskraft. Within weeks the Military was retreating to Montréal leaving New Haven open to an enemy ground assault. King Caspar quickly led the Army to repel the Flemish invaders and dealt serious blows to their ground capabilities. Hallenberg and the Sozialistische were also dealt major defeats in their midterm elections resulting in almost 4% of the votes in the Nationalversammlung and winning 2 seats in the Senat. The Konservative Nationalversammlung and the Völker Arbeiterparetei controlled Senat made any legislature impossible for Hallenberg. In 1960, Hallenberg announced he would not seek a Konservative Elizabeth de Roux went to face Louis Chang in the second round of voting after the ultra-right Völker Arbeiterpartei managed to sweep against the falling Sozialistische. The Sozialistische and Konservative Party united in pushing their voters to support Presidental Candidate de Roux, beating Louis Chang. de Roux became the first female President of Laurentia, and formed a new coalition government. Die Moderne Koalitionie was formed with a new Modern Democrat, Konservative, and Workers party. The coalition successfully cultivated liberal-convervative ideals and even passed the first version of the CMU, Laurentian Health. However, the coalition came in tatters after JuliusGate showed that de Roux and party leaders had been funding massive surveillance programs on Flanders, Sicilia, and Francia. JuliusGate led to the resignation of over 243 public servants and 23 Military Officers. In 1978, the Koalition was dealt its final blow when President de Roux was assassinated during a Pro-Women's March in Berlin. An interim government led by Eric Schweinstagger was in charge between 1978 and 1980. de Roux had left a legacy of tranquillity, cooperation, bipartisanship, and prosperity. She broke the 1 term deadlock and was profoundly adored even through JuliusGate. With the collapse of the coalition, the new Demokratische Bewegung Partei formed. Comprising of Liberal Konservatives, Left leaning Socialists, Right-wing Christan Union, and Conservative Democrats. The Center-Right DBP was led by Rosemarie Laurens. Attempting to unify an already divided Larentia, President Laurens boosted support for small businesses, created a stricter immigration policy and dismissed the Self Defense Force. However, the Self Defense Force was already being dismantled under de Roux, the Self Defense Force became His Majesties Royal Armed Forces. The Economic Council was formed in the cabinet of President Laurens and the new CMU was formed within the Ministry of Health. Together, the Cabinet comprised of 3 councils. The Social Council made up of the Health, Culture, Entertainment, Education, Environmental and Social Affairs Ministries. The Security Council of the Interior, Civil Defense, Foreign Affairs and Defense Ministries. The Economic Council comprising of the Ministries of Finance, Entertainment, and Culture. these two new councils helped President Laurens push new legislature passed the Nationalversammlung and Senat. However, in 1995 the President called for a referendum changing the bicaramel Parliment. The Senat had been an unelected body, chosen by the 14 regions with 12 senators each, and 1 senator for Berlin and New Haven. Because it was chosen by the Electorate, local mayors and governors it had no worry of public opinion on their elections. The senat, however, was able to uphold many key legislatures. The referendum would strip the Senat of its powers, allow Berlin and New Haven 1 Senator each and give all voting power to the Nationalversammlung. It also gave the power of signing Foreign Treaties to the Senat and gave them permission to review and provide amendments to bills from the Nationalverammlung. The Nationalversammlung was not the sole voting power in the Parliment, the 'National Assembly' was charged with writing bills and advising bills from the Senat. The Nationalversammlung has also been the seat for debates in its chambers. This has often allowed people to voice their concerns to the government. Laurens Administration (1980-2000) After President de Roux’s death, Die Moderne Koalitionie in shatters, and the rise of Traditional Populism, the 1980 election was a fierce and deadly campaign. The dissolution of the Modern Coalition saw 3 new prominent groups; Demokratische Bewegung Partei , Moderne Demokratische Partei, and Moderne Konservatives. The Moderne Demokratische were looking to set a new record, and continue on the social reforms of Elizabeth de Roux. Whilst many distanced themselves from her, the Moderne Demokratische were going to use her social platform and more liberal views. However, the party had been unable to recover from the collapse of it's leadership and in the ensuing internal struggle the Demokratische Bewegung Partei won over 56% of the Liberal Vote. The Demokratische Bewegung Partei led by Rosemarie Laurens was well received by the general population and was sure to help them touch with the ethnic minority of Witten people. The Demokratische Bewegung Partei annouced their candidate, who was highly received in the eastern regions of Laurentia which boosted the Demokratische Bewegung Partei image. The Laurentia debt was at 650 Billion Kronen, and the Kronen was devalued and lost .32 of its international value. She accepted her parties candidacy, and promised to reduce the debt to 100 billion by 1990, and to decrease unemployment to 3.2% by 1990 and to increase the minimum wage and work in the interest of the people. The Election was heavily publicized as Main Stream Media allowed candidates to be with the people, and reach people in far away regions. The younger Rosemarie was able to connect with the high amounts of unemployed and left youth. Her campaign used Social Media to portray her as the People’s Candidate, and the election went underway. Initially the Modern Konservative Party was winning with 12% of the vote, and the People’s Party trailing at 11%, The Modern Democrats were at a meager 2% and the Demokratische Bewegung Partei were at 23%.Aas the day progressed closing polls and media reports put Demokratische Bewegung Partei at 56%, the Modern Conservative Party at 21%, and the People’s Party at 22%. At 12:00 PM LST, The Final votes were in, and the Rosemarie Laurens was elected the sixth President of The Federation, its youngest leader, and its second female President. In parliament, her party hoped that a much more older and experienced council would make their leadership superb, and Rosemarie obliged and made Jacques Legendr her Prime Minister. Domestic Affairs The new administration cut 200,000 government jobs, reduced defense spending, and cracked down on mismanagement of funds. The administration also laid out an economic plan that worked to stimulate growth in the job market, increase education spending, and increase social welfare for the interest of future sustainability. They also implemented laws to strengthen ethnic heritage, such as allowing Witten to be the official language in State Affairs in North and South Winterfell, Foreign Affairs Crash of 1995 The Progressive policies of the Laurens administration put Laurentia deeper in Debt. After economic progressions stagnated across the world an economic crash occurred. The worlds economies plunged into recession, and Laurentia was hit head on. The unemployment rate skyrocketed Drug Pandemic Dealing with the economy crisis, a new Drug Pandemic swept Laurentia. Herione, Cocaine, and other drugs were in high demand in Laurentia. Cultists Court Union As the dust began to settle on the economic crash of 2000. The CCU or the Cultists Court Union led a reign of terror and incorporated many FRA cells. By mid May 1993, the CCU had killed over 30 and destroyed over 23 Billion kr worth of property. The Government led a counterinsurgency against the CCU, and quickly acted to its downfall. The Government infiltrated the CCU, and launched military strikes against suspected targets or buildings. The President’s approval ratings skyrocketed, and (Most of it is incomplete and I am working on it) 2000 Election Rosemarie’s polls showed her sloping, but still high. At roughly 56%, many within her party were open to her running for a third term. However, Rosemarie declined and nominated her niece Véronique Laurens to become the parties nomination. Rosemarie helped her niece, Véronique in the parties legislative election. Demokratische Bewegung Partei continued to control the Nationalversammlung and with a Coalition with the Moderne Konservative, and promised to lead Laurentia in the new century. However, this caused dissidence between the Modern Democrats and Rosemarie who was moving in-between parties. In the Legislature elections, Demokratische Bewegung Partei won 315 seats in the Nationalversammlung and gained 12 in Senay. Demokratische Bewegung Partei sucessful won the Eletion only facing off against the People’s Party winning 83% of the vote. Véronique appointed a close friend, Jean-Zofia Korczak to be her Prime Minister, and formed a new Coalition Government with the Modern Demokratische and Moderne Konservatives . The Modern Democrats set to work on renovating and reimplementing the Schünemann Economic Policies, as well as fixing the Foreign Affairs The Laurens Administration took a broader approach to Foreign Affairs. They opened hundreds of new Diplomatic Stations, joined or viewed International Organizations and worked on mediating between waring factions. Prime Minister Schünemann was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize alongside Maj. General Johann Smurk whom negotiated a peace process between the Government and Flemish Revolutionary Army. The Junker Administration increased Defense Spending by 12 Billion Krone, to a 380 Billion Krone Budget. His Majesties Royal Armed Forces took part in Overseas operations aimed at rescuing Laurentians, or peacekeeping missions. Former Commander Deprez was nominated to the Militaries Peacekeeping Command Center, and operates Laurentia’ Peacekeeping Missions. Alongside their Soft Foreign Policy, the Laurens Administration signed Trade Deals and Free Trade Policies with neighboring or developing nations. Stimulating the economy, they had an annual surplus of 200 Billion Kronen. By 2006 the Kronen was on of the strongest currencies in the world and Jean-Claude Steuermann 2020 Election; (Once again Most of it is incomplete and I am working on it)

The Government heavily invests into the Public sector and has often also invested into promising private companies. Companies moving to Laurentia enjoy 23% Tax reduction for 15 years. Being able to keep jobs in the Secondary Sector has been no easy task, but the government opens new infostructure programs hiring many people. The Government also puts people with Secondary jobs [construction, mining, forestry, etc…] on the top of lists for Government Programs, and have access to top quality education free of charge. In modern trends, people in Secondary Sector jobs have decreased to roughly 5% of the total labor force. Because of the global trend in decline towards these jobs, the government has increased spending towards advertising the free eduction policies the government employees so that people in these sectors can be put into skilled labor. Laurentia’s economy has an AAA rating and has built a strong currency the Kronen or Laurentian Kronen. Valued at 1 Kr - 0.75 USD, The Kronen has built a sustainable exchange rate with other nations. The economy has grown consecutively since 2002 but has had sharp declines in 2004, 2007, and 2014 as a result of global economic downfall. However, growth continued and the government’s federal surplus has amounted to nearly 8 Trillion Kr. Laurentia’s debt had been roughly 207 Billion Kr in 1998 and was growing at an astonishing rate. The Demokratische Bewegungs Partei quickly moved to curb this debt crisis by limiting foreign investment, and increasing spending in the public sector and providing higher economic incentives for companies to move into Laurentia. Health Care The State runs a health care system called Couverture Maladie Universelle or CMU. In the CMU, all Laurentian Citizens may visit all hospitals and clinics in the country. Every citizen has a CMU card issued at the age of 18. Before 18 children are linked to their parent’s accounts. Although health check ups must be paid in cash, the Government reimburses the CMU account between 70-80% of the cost. Treatments are paid for by the Government, and the CMU account is always topped off by the Government. However, the CMU costs the country a huge chunk of its GDP. Roughly 400 Billion Krone go to Health Care. However, Laurentians enjoy some of the best healthcare, and the most healthy and longest lives. Established in 1947, the CMU, everyone must pay for mandatory Health Insurance in the form of Payroll Tax, Income Tax, and other taxes such as Alcohol and Tobacco tax. There are 5 types of Insurance, General, Independent, Agricultural, Student, and Public Servant. The CMU covers things from In and Out patient, Specialists, Dentists, Diagnostic, Prescription Drugs, Medical Device, Mental Health, Medical Transportation, House Call, Maternity Benefits, and Child Care. They also have a health insurance plan for the unemployed, and others who may not be able to obtain one from their work. Although Doctors make less money compared to other nations, they receive free medical training, income and social security tax reductions and government support. Doctors who do use the Government System have funds and budgets set by the Ministry of Health, who also decided the numbers of beds, what equipment used, and set up procedures. The costs of health are really low, with a check in costing roughly 1 Kr, a night in the hospital could cost up to 18 Kr, and medicine costs less than half a krone. The sicker someone is, the less it costs. Cancer patients receive 100% free medical care, people with obesity receive personal trainers and other medical conditions receive medical care to prevent the spread or worsening of a condition. Roughly 56% of doctors in Laurentia are self-employed and a majority use Government systems Labor Laws The Labor laws of Laurentia, are modernized and revised version of the de Roux Labor Code. Since 1970, Laurentia had been created a new labor code. Under Prime Minister de Roux, the country saw a pro-business and anti-union legislature which led to 3 months of protest and riots until the protests died out. Economic prosperity continued and rapidly rose.

  12. Laurentia 24 Hello to our audience in Laurentia and abroad. Latest on our international desk I am Andrea Carter. A major hacking attack struck Laurentia's news and government agencies with reports from the Ministry of Interior that over 2,000 Government accounts were targeted and at least 3 major news organizations. Laurentia 24, Der Spiegel, and Laurentian Broadcasting Channel reported that their servers and websites were compromised. First off, President Laurent returned late Wednesday evening from a meeting with Emperor Hungadada where both nations agreed to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership targeting economic partnership and advance military relations. Defense Minister von Jæger returned to Montréal after "Joining Laurentian Troops in scouting operations". Foreign Minister Renault also returned from her personal vacation and in a Foreign Affairs Conference unveiled the new Laurentian Embassy in Britannia and Port Royalty. The Conference had foreign dignitaries from across the world and think tanks in discussing Laurentia's Foreign Policy and international developments. The Britannian-Laurentian Strategic Military Cooperation Agreement was signed by President Laurens after the Senat voted in a high majority to ratify the agreement. Defense Minister von Jæger and Deputy Defense Minister Reinhardt were seen at the Blue House with President Laurens for an almost 8-hour meeting. Their spokesperson told Laurentia 24 "Minister von Jæger and Reinhardt had a meeting with the President to bring both her and the Defense Minister up to speed on current ongoing operations." The Ministry of Civil Defense closed over 12 buildings after suspected FRA cells claimed to have placed deadly chemical weapons inside of them. Minister de Roux and her Deputy Minister Hallenberg spoke at a Press Release. "Although the threat is minuscule. The Gendarmerie and Bio-Chemical units of Her Majestys Royal Armed Forces have begun sweeping 12 high rise apartments in the downtown area of Montréal. The FRA reminiscence has continued to pose an unfeasible threat. However, due to lack of oversight. The FRA has slowly expanded into a rebel group intent on fighting the Government of Laurentia. The Chemical Threat is nothing to worry, We have a high level of certainty that this was a simple hoax and no is not an actual chemical weapon." Der Spiegel The Der Spiegel was unable to continue it's daily news cycle due to a cyber attack that caused the compromise of over 30,000 accounts on our website. Maintenance had the website down until Monday Afternoon. Prime Minister Korczak and President Young-suk held a round table discussion with their respected ministers. Although still on-going. Our reporters can say that breakthroughs in both Economic and Technological have been made. However, our sources say that there are still some issues regarding Military and Trade. More information will come when available

Project Electric Combat / Reconnaissance [Classified Military Development Project] Director Allan Campbell Director of Defense Research and Strategic Military Reserve File Information: Name: Project Electric Combat Reconnaissance Aircraft (Laurentian Aerial Deployment) File Name: Project ECR 2241 --- AUTHORIZATION LEVEL 6: SIGNED, Project Location: [Heckler Industrial Complex] Operation Size: [20 Billion Kronens, 50 Scientists of the Strategic Military Reserve and Private Contractors form Heckler Military Complex] The Marineflieger's Tornado ADV is currently lacking in advance evasion components and being able to fly through electromagnetic areas without hindering its operations. The ADV has also seen issues flying though storms and cold air. Alongside the Seebataillon creation of a separate air wing from the Marineflieger has resulted in a new need for an advance air plane. The F-16 has been sufficient in its capacities,but a new Tornado ECR would make the operational capabilities of our marine land forces and aerial naval units much more capable. Heckler Industries has already advanced into testing phases of the ECR and it would rapidly advance our own ECR program to work with them. [Classified Blue Prints]
