A NEW GOVERNMENT IN TOWN!
I couldn't find anything else, trust me I looked for a while
With a new government in town, well actually they've been here awhile so more like with a new government in power it marks the end of a term and the start of a new one. Free States and his running mate Libertarian Washington won but before they moved in a couple government officials gave one last address to the People this included Crescellia, who had to drop out of the race because of real life issues, who talked about his term in office and gave it that last huzzah and Lewis and Daniel who talked about what he had done while he was the Undersecretary of Defense. Not too long after Free States took office and got to work. One of our sources said that while Free States was cleaning out the Presidential mansion he found lots of things that others had left behind, like a secret dungeon with screams and cries coming from it, a stash of hentai, rope and a candle, some gum underneath one of the chairs, pants that had been hidden, and a whole lot more like his old gun that he hid in the English Dictionary. It isn't exactly known what Free States did with all of the things he found and we might never find out.
Soon after that Free States released his appointments to the Cabinet which included older faces like Trook and Andune who are now the Secretary of the Interior and Treasure, respectfully, and newer faces like Emrys Mercer who will be taking over the military. Then not too long ago he released his nominations for Attorney General and the Supreme Court Justices to the Senate, with included Mytzonia, who still has to take law classes before he can assume the office, Imperium, Conserlan, and New Lafayette, respectfully.
The Senate also saw some new senators in the elections with Western Timpetotia, Bacilli, and Britarvia all coming back to the Senate after time away and Aurumaquaria replacing Andune and getting his first chance in the region to serve office. With new senators coming in that also means that speaker elections must also come to fruition, this time with Hunteiria, Queen Rebecca and Lewis and Daniel all running. The race was tight however after Hunteiria and Queen Rebecca tied 4 to 4 Lewis and Daniel broke the tie by changing his vote from himself to Hunteiria who will once again be our Speaker.
Hopefully this coming term will be a good one but as many people like to say only time will tell.
ARE YOU A CEO? meaning that the budget only passed by 2 votes and a very slim margin, perhaps the smallest margin a budget has passed on in over 6 months. The Senators voting against and abstaining did so for a variety of reasons such as cutting the salaries of senators who had no say in if they wanted their salary cut yet saying that they did, little transparency and no receipt from the Department of Treasury on how they exactly spend $25,000 while other departments who had published a receipt and had the ability to spend more were left at under $5,000, among other issues.
However this seemed to infuriate the Secretary and a few others who barged in on the voting stage in the Senate and disrupted the chamber, who will be fined. Order was restored. However the Secretary went on to post several other posts in other threads about the budget and what he thought of the senators who didn't vote for it, once such quote "So don't expect me to raise any payments again for Senators who, as I see it, didn't do their job correctly." as some conspiracy theorists view this as well as others, they see this quote as the Secretary saying that he will be holding the Senator's salaries hostage because they didn't vote they way that he wanted and will probably lower Senator's salaries again in February.
Though the budget has passed, so in the long run while it didn't get the support other budgets in the past have it stilled passed which means that the government can continue operating and no shutdown will be had, but this could also mean that more thought and planning will be going into the next budget and hopefully it will be able to get more votes and be a better budget.
PUBLISHING ON JANUARY 19TH.
NARUTO RP GOING ON!
With a slue of other role plays going on several people have still found time to start another one which looks very promising or at least for now, a Naruto role play. The role play which as you might have figured out takes place in the world of Naruto where people get to develop their own characters who can the ability to have some totally awesome jutsu. Currently in the RP there is a tournament in the Leaf Village that will be testing the skills of shinobi and ninja all over the world, which was done to see what our characters got versus others. So far the tournament hasn't started so new members can join at anytime they want, no knowledge of Naruto needed, but helpful.
That's not all there is also a lot of out of context talk about Naruto like pairings, you know Naruto x Hinata, Neji x Tenten, so on. However many other role plays have started out just as fine like the New Modern World RP, and many others but soon fall to inactivity and other nasty things. Will the Naruto RP also fall to those things? Let's hope not but only time will actually tell us. That's time for you, always holding the secrets we want to know.
UPDATE ON THE MESSENGER AND NRI
I was wanting to use this picture :3
Hello everyone and thank you once again for reading the wonderful paper that we like to call The Messenger. Before we get into everything else about the company I'd just like to tell you a few things. The first time The Messenger appeared in NationStates was several years ago as The British Messenger in The United Kingdom, it didn't stay for long though later I believe I opened it up again in The Kingdom of Denmark as The Danish Messenger. The Messenger might have also been in a couple other regions but I forget. Now we've been in The Allied Republic and first published on July 25, 2012. Now it's January 12, 2014 and this is our 27th issue. We are one of the oldest and longest running papers here and are nearing our 30th issue. It has been quite a journey and we'd like to thank you for helping us out every step of the way.
Next we'd like to talk about The Messenger Postal Service, the very first postal service of it's kind in the region. It is a subdivision of The Messenger which as the name implies sends out letters, messages, and telegrams. The company has a very effective formula for determining payment. The base fee, currently $100, then $3 times the number of messages or telegrams you want to send out, then if you want us to write the letter an additional fee is added.
The Goddess Casino has also opened up which deals with bets, gambling and all that other cool stuff. It recently held bets on the elections and will probably do so again next election. It is also working to develop a lotto and other forms of gambling.
North Republic Industries is doing quite well and has been seeing good profits so far from it's various companies and will be publishing a finial report very soon.
Speaker Hunteiria making sure that the Senate is Active and Doing Fine while following the rules and being awesome.

AN INTERVIEW WITH TROOK ABOUT HIS NEW ELECTIONS ACT
Today we sat down with Secretary of the Interior Trook where we we're able to talk to him about Election Act VI which he hopes will help to improve the region and cut down on the red tape that's involved with our election process.
TM: 1. How will this new Elections Act be cutting red tape and how will it help the election process?
Trook: The new act will help by cutting down bureaucracy such as the election reports as long with cutting down in the wording of the law to make it simpler to understand what quicker to find out what you need to know.
TM: 2. Why did you decide to write a new elections act?
Trook: Well as part of my tasks as Secretary of the Interior I have been tasked by President Free States to cut down on the admin side of the SOI and to deal with some issues that people raised and he himself agreed with that made people feel restricted in the elections particularly in regards to political parties being limited to only have as many candidates as there are seats to win in the senate elections.
TM: 3. Why do you think it is better than the current one?
Trook: Well this version is less cumbersome than the lasts in terms of limitations and formal reports which some Secretaries ignored, I am not naming names but there was a key link between getting elected to senate then not doing the report. I also admit to myself that it is a lot simpler as I can almost fir it on one screen without having to slide down whilst keeping necessary regulation.
TM: 4. Imperium also proposed an election act not too long ago, why do you think yours is better?
Trook: Although I know Imperium will disagree but I feel his is too simple to the point we lose standardisation which keeps the elections the name every time so no one can start saying one election is harder than the other due to how they were organised. Secondly you also lost a lot of accountability in his due to the SOI not even being required to encourage people to vote or to stand as candidates which I think would lead elections having less participation along with the Senate loosing he ability to impeach the SOI if they done a job so bad that they had to be remove.
TM: Alright, thank you. Is there anything else you would like to add?
Trook: It has the formal and official support of the President + It looks like Imps may be voted down in the senate
There you have it folks straight from the Secretary himself.

1. The Irresponsible Captain Tylor -- Also sometimes called Musekinin Kanchou Tylor. It aired in 1993. It starts out with Justy Ueki Tylor who after seeing an ad decides to join the military, get a desk job, and then retire with a fat pension. That was until he managed to save an former admiral from people who were holding him hostage and to reward Tylor he is promoted and becomes the Captain of the Soyokaze. It goes on from there.
The Story is good, it's entertaining and enjoyable. It's not really deep but it still has a nice story. It is a comedy, parody, space, military, anime. It is really funny a lot of the time. It is nice to watch and let's you break away from life and drama. At times you may stray away from it but you'll come back. The Characters are pretty good, Captain Tylor is really funny and a likable and enjoyable character as well as others like Yuriko, Yamamoto, and Goza. I liked them. Character development is there, the characters really change through out the anime. You see how the crew grows together and how they change. It's pretty good. The music is good, I really enjoyed the opening and ending themes and as well as some of the other soundtracks, they were pretty good and I wish I could find the ringtones. I watched the English dub, it was good, I thought that the voices matched the characters pretty well. The animation is old, it was from 1993, but I also liked watching that older animation sometimes. It isn't the best but it's fine.
The ending was nice, there is a OVA squeal but I haven't seen it yet. The enjoyment is good, I liked it, it was nice. It was also nice to watch older anime, I do like watching older anime sometimes.
2. Nodame Cantabile -- One of my favorite anime, it deals with music and the life of Shinichi Chiaki and Megumi Noda or as everyone calls her Nodame. The story starts off with Chiaki walking around campus of a music college, and says that everything's bad or terrible or something, but he then hears something that's not terrible. Chiaki is from a respectable family and has traveled around Europe and has been in Japan for a while. He can play the piano and the violin and is good at both, however wishes to become a conductor and he is a perfectionist. Nodame plays the piano an unkempt girl. The story goes on.
The story is wonderful, I really enjoyed it and it was amazing. I really liked it, it deals with music, slice of of life, drama, romance, comedy, and is josei. I really liked it as it told a wonderful story and I really liked how it deals with college. The pacing is also well done. The Characters are wonderful, Chiaki and Nodame are wonderful and amazing I really liked them as well as many of the other characters like Milch. Not only that but I also like the relationships between the characters. The Character development was also pretty well done and it's nice. You can see how they develop and move. The music, really key to the anime as it deals with classical music. The music is wonderful, the opening and ending are very wonderful and I like them and have used both of them as ringtones. Not only that but the songs that they play though out the series. This anime really helped me to really start liking classical music again. Now for the voice acting I watched the first season dubbed on Crackle and it was great I really liked it the voices were good, but I don't think that they have dubbed any further than that so I had to watch the second season subbed, which was good but I would have liked to have had the dubbed. The animation is also well done, I liked it.
The ending of the first season was good of course I went to the second season later and still have to watch the third. The enjoyment is great, I really liked it. This is one of my favorite anime, I just love it. I have also read a lot fo the manga after it, I didn't jump ahead though and still need to finish reading a lot of it.
