Elparia Regional Message Board
Naval Expansion put on Pause
After much debate within the KCP, as well as between the SPK, DSK as well as LK, it was mutually agreed to put a pause on naval expansion plans for now. The reasoning for wanting this has so far varied between party to party, however some of the most notable consistent points given by each party have been involved is that Konzask is not expected to go to war soon, meaning the naval budget currently should be focused on upgrading, rather then expansion. However another note worthy reason stated by the KCP is that this 10 year plan, as well as the next is purely dedicated to domestic economic growth and stability, making the expansion plans as of now a waste of resources.
As such the funds put into the Crimson Navies expansion have been pulled, and put into the vast infrastructure projects within Konzask, as well as the BU as a whole. This extra funding however doesn't just come from the Naval Budget, but a reworking of Konzask's budget to fit the goals of this 10 year plan, as well as the next, with a much heavier emphasis being put on the public sector. As such on top of the construction of new schools, hospitals, factories, office parks and more, the current ones have begun receiving increased funding. The increased funding is claimed to be a small part of future plans, with the KCP stating that "Konzask's primary goal is, and always has been improving the life for it's people, and assuring the rights of it's citizens and workers regardless of race, sexuality, beliefs and identity. We've brought Konzask to a backwater monarchist land of farmers to a modern industrial major power on the world stage as well as almost snuffed out unemployment entirely, and we will not stop there".
Reaffirming the KCP's primary goal being on economic growth, many in Konzask has advocated for a return to isolationism, while others argue that would hurt Konzask's growth more then hasten it. The KCP state that they have multiple moves planned and ready for execution in time, and that in the next year or so, the effects of the moves made by this 10 year plan as of now will be felt, as by then, schools, highways and rail lines for bullet trains and mono rails are expected to be completed and fully constructed, while later in the plan the new skyscrapers and office parks as well as factories will aid even further. Weather the plans for the KCP aid in this or not is yet to be seen, and has been met with mild skepticism as well as hopeful optimism by the media. The KCP ended their statement by calling Konzask a land of opportunity and peace on Berinsky, as well as calling Konzask an unfinished master piece, and it's up to the KCP and Proletariat hand in hand to complete it.
CSAT Military Infrastructure Update:
Over the past 4 months, alongside the procurement of CSAT equipment and the consolidation of CSAT logistics both on paper and in the physical world, several CSAT member nations under a broader funded initiative have been constructing and deploying helicopter bases, dugouts, and supply depots throughout Selaria on behalf of the peacekeeping corps.
Assisted by a growing list of jointly operating Aesidian-Zionian companies, manufacturers, and contractors, portable base and weapon modules have been provided and shipped throughout to streamline and accelerate the swift process of building a basic web of military infrastructure on behalf of CSAT.
So far, the sparse yet interconnected logistical web connects dozens of newly procured modular supply depots and helicopter installations specifically across the coasts and on land borders of various member nations. So far, these are concentrated within Obungunda, Ubengundu, and Zion.
As a sister project to various other infrastructure plans envisioned by the collective of CSAT consortium members, the erected military infrastructure doubly assists in civilian logistics during peacetime and ensures the free-flow of equipment, raw materials, workers, and peacekeeping forces to protect the shipment of said resources through various hazardous red-zones on the continent, connecting member nations on a consistent and safe web of infrastructure for the first time.
Beyond this past-summary, the next phase of this project is already underway, maintaining the cheap modular procurement already utilized previously, this time to create permanent installations and even patrolled land-routes between key focal points on the continent, and set up a dedicated public service organization as a wing of the peacekeeping corps to assist in public projects of both military and civilian purpose, all pertaining to infrastructure. Said planned organization has been provided funding in advance for setting up basic recruitment facilities in major population centers of consenting member nations so that a vast pool of workers can be utilized and provided a comparatively, yet proportionally generous wage, which can then be used by said workers as remittance to their home country.
Additionally, multiple consortium members face pending requests regarding their consent of this initiative, including but not limited to:
Re-initialization of Obungundan Peacekeeping
After months of formal withdrawal from the continent, Aesidia and Zion are recommitting to initial efforts of combating warlordism within the Selarian nation. Aesidia pledges to maintain it's defensive role, allowing home-grown Obungundan forces and military police to take center stage, under the assistance, funding, and advice of their Aesidian counterparts on matters of professional military support, safety, training, and construction.
Additionally, alongside preexisting efforts by CSAT to erect military infrastructure, Obungunda has been provided the very same funding and hands-on assistance to set up it's own sovereign installations and logistics to engage in independent missions of their very own.
Meanwhile, in the background, Zion has been provided the opportunity to train a segment of existing Obungundan volunteer forces for peer-to-peer asymmetrical warfare, utilizing their own experience from decades of infighting at home for a clear, defined approach to counter-insurgency that deviates from conventional approaches to counter-insurgency.
This all falls under a campaign of intrigue orchestrated by CSAT, Obungunda, Aesidia, and Zion to plant faux, disciplined warlords into Obungunda, often making up of consenting and charismatic high-ranking military officials in CSAT and Obungunda, harshly vetted for their loyalty and commitment under the newly consolidated national identity of Obungunda, and the humanitarian ambitions of CSAT.
As a reiterance, Zion oversees the majority of this campaign, modelling faux warlords after the meaning of citizenship as known in Zion, adapted for the conditions and cultural sensitivities of Obungunda. The purpose of this initiative is to not only procure grassroots grown forces akin to how warlords consolidate and mobilize their own forces, but this time not under honorless pretenses, instead being discreetly equipped to provide the ungoverned masses the understanding of the morality and value of leadership, comradery, honor and nationhood.
Trade Deal Purposed With Aesidia
After days of debate within the party, Konzask has decided to officially offer trade negotiations to Aesidia. The KCP stated that this move is mutual beneficial to both nations, especially for the Konzaskan people, as it aids in hastening the goals in the 10 Year Plan, with some even beginning to wonder if these diplomatic missions are part of the plan itself. The KCP on the matter officially stated that "Konzask has come out of isolation only less then 2 decades ago, it is important to show the world that we are a free, democratic, anti imperialist nation. If they refuse to believe us so be it, let them come see for themselves". The KCP as of late has been making their aims to bring Konzask further into global geo politics quite often, and a trade agreement with a nation that has a shared history with Konzask is a good start. The media itself has been rather receptive to these recent moves, with many citizens eagerly anticipating the response, even more so to the Trekan one.
10 Year Plan Cont'
As of now the 10 year plan is continuing on schedule, with the bigger changes still not expected to be felt until around 2024, they are most defenantly beginning to be seen now. With small scale infrastructure projects being finished, and the base of countless new universities, hospitals, skyscrapers, office parks, apartments, factories and more fully visible, jutting out of the ground as construction continues on schedule. With this the KCP has continued to re affirm that "It's the Konzaskan Governments highest, most holy duty to serve the people of Konzask, and we will continue to do so until the end of time itself". The media and many citizens have generally poked fun at this statement, as it's seen to be a bit "much", some even finding it a little cringy, however the gesture itself is over all aprreciated.
Konzask and Possible BU Cruises
The KTB (Konzask Tourist Beauro) after weeks of planning, and focusing on attracting tourists, an official "Pan Berinsky Cruise" was officially created. The cruise itself is marketed to be extremely affordable, and cost efficient, with the route being around Berinsky as a whole (docking for fuel when need be). The KTB and KCP have begun efforts to refine Konzask's cruise 'industry' as well as tourist appeal, as both have noticed the potential in Konzask's rising tourist industry. With the KTB wanting to improve tourism at Berinsky as a whole, help mentain positive BU relations as well as work towards destroying negative continental stigma, have reached out to Quangsuh, encouraging them to work on their tourist industry as well.
Tourism in Berinsky
At the proposal from Konzask, the QTO (Quangsui Tourism Organisation) is delighted to accept and build on any and all proposals offered, stating that “the prospect of giving Quangsui citizens the chance to familiarise themselves with our newest and strongest ally would do great service in breaking old stigma”. Regional Shikou’s of Xianshui, Dāshàn and Wansu are making preparations for possible cruise ship berthing and safe, coordinated tours catered for Konzaskan citizens.
Conversion to the Beuro
Following in the footsteps of Konzask the Beuro will be entering in a trial run in Xichang, where care will be taken to ensure the new currency phasing out the Yuan won’t wreck any havoc, especially with Quangsuhs new economic woes.
Haos wealth for good
Many months after Haos death, much debate has been had over how to utilise his insane wealth of $200,000,000,000 TSD. The current Federal Government is taking its time with deciding its use, as it is currently knee-deep in budget cuts, particular the Military. It can be guessed however, that the funds will go towards modernising public transport systems, boosting the lacking education system, funding developments in NR, supporting the BU through joint projects, poverty alleviation programs in isolated Qungsui mainland regions and so on.
Quangsuh, after its period of civil war suffered heavily with massive deductions in global trade. The State Tangshi requests the nations of Treka, Zion, Hollefjord, Aesidia, Triminia, Minachia and all nations willing, to consider opening in trade dialogue with Quangsuh, which is a large exporter of raw materials, dairy, rice and lumber, while being a large importer of machinery, tech and luxury goods.
Konzask Quangsuh Investment
With the domination of electric vehicles in Konzask, stockpiles of un used and stockpiled vehicles have been slowly building up, as well as outdated models. As such, seeing the possibility of a win win, and work towards one of Konzasks minor goals with the BU, that of making Quangsuh more environmentally friendly, Konzask has offered a new trade agreement with Quangsuh. In exchange for electric vehicles (and foreign workers to build charging stations in cities and towns) Konzask has requested the increased import of raw materials to utilize in it's vast nation wide construction projects, as well as the Pan Berinsky infrastructure construction that Konzask has started. Konzask has also offered to increase it's exports of electronic devices (ranging from domestic to military) in exchange for an increased rice and lumber import.
Seeing clear opportunity the KAB (Konzask Automobile Bureau) has offered to invest in Quangsuh. The KAB offering to fund the construction of multiple automobile plants in and around some of Quangsuhs more isolated areas. KAB stating that the plant construction will be entirely funded by them, and that not only will the construction be a new employment option for Quangsuh citizens, but the plants themselves will be a good source of income in the isolated more impoverished regions of Quangsuh, offering extensive on sight learning and Konzask labor laws, ensuring the emphasis on on sight safety, paid maternal leaves, vacation days, as well as paid vacation days during national holidays. The KCP on the matter stated that it is also a good way to start increasing Beuro circulation in Quangsuhs lower wealth areas. Since Konzask started adopting the Beuro first, it's inflation rate has more or less been artificially made similar, if not slightly lower then the Konzaskan Lev, meaning over all, the future workers of said plants are ensured to be payed extremely well, which ideally would aid in Quangsuhs goals of decreasing poverty in it's more isolated regions. The KCP also stated it is a relatively cheap way to not only have mainland Quangsuh automobile construction, but also a way to slowly make Quangsuh more environmentally friendly without drastically effecting the economy, or draining the Quangsuh budget, with the KCP even claiming that "With our cooperation and joint efforts, Xichang shall see clear skies once more by 2025".
Ylevamaa in the BU
(OC was confirmed by Treka)
The KCP officially announce Ylevamaa's acceptance into the BU, stating that "For the first time in history, Berinsky stands united in peace". With Ylevamaa's entry into the BU Konzask has stated that together the three nations will bring about a new era of continental friendship, peace, cooperation and prosperity for Berinsky, with Konzaskan president Georgi Dimitrov stating "Never before in the history of Berinsky has this been possible. A continent once famous for it's division, authoritarianism and bloodshed has finally come together in the common goal of keeping Berinsky for Berinskians, for Berinsky economic growth and preservation of peace, we even have a joint continental currency, an idea thought to be impossible no less then 3 months back. Today we've achieved the impossible, now it's time to achieve it again". With Ylevamaa in the BU the KCP has proposed the idea for a "Trans-Berinsky Rail System", a Rail Line and metro system that spans across not only the entire mainland continent, but if the tunnel connecting Quangsuh to the mainland is deemed possible, then across Quangsuh as well, which would in tern, create possibly the largest most interconnected rail system in the world, let alone Berinsky history.
With the BU officially formalized and more or less set in stone, Konzask has made moves to create BU councils. The councils are to have highly skilled professionals in their select fields from every nation able to meet, discuss, debate and make BU proposal to the governments of member nations. The councils include the BUEC (Berinsky Union Economic Council) BUDC (Berinsky Union Defense Council) BURC (Berinsky Union Research Council), BUEGC (Berinsky Union Engineering Council) BUTC (Berinsky Union Trade Council) BUARC (Berinsky Animal Rights Council), BUCC (Berinsky Union Cultural Council) and last, but certainly not least, the BUHRC (Berinsky Union Human Rights Council).
BUEC: The goal and purpose of the BUEC is for renowned and well versed economists from member nations to meet on a bi weekly basis to discuss the current state of their home nations, current trends and debate where to invest, reforms that should be made, BU budget adjustments and more. The BUEC is to offer extended insight and help facilitate safe, quick and effective economic growth and stability in the BU.
BUDC: The Defense Council is what it implies. The BUDC's goal will be to help coordinate and aid in the cooperation of each members armed forces (be it ground forces, navy or air force). The goal being to create a cohesive military force to ensure the safety of Berinsky and it's citizens, as well as to aid the BU in intervening in cases of Human Rights Violations, or International Emergencies. Officers from member nations here are to meet every other month for as long as they so choose to discuss tactics, organize possible war games and training exercises as well as to help formulate and standardize a unified BU military doctrine.
BURC: The BURC in concept is rather simple, as it's expected to be in practice. The brightest minds of member nations on a bi weekly basis in this council can meet, discuss, debate and schedule collaborations centered around scientific development and growth. The council will aid in the technological development and growth of every member nation short term as well as long term.
BUEGC: The engineering council is primarily used in infrastructure and construction projects and much more. The council is to discuss new infrastructure and construction projects. To plan them, organize them and budget accordingly for them. The council is also to assert BU labor laws, rights and function more or less as a workers voice within the Union.
BUTC: As the name implies, the BUTC's purpose is to mandate and over see on and off continent trade. It asses the fairness and feasibility of deals and pre existing agreements. The council is to do this for both BU and none BU trade to ensure the fairness as well as profitability of trade and foreign transactions regarding BU members.
BUARC: The BUARC's purpose is to help the BU create a joint animal rights law. This extends to domestic animals (what's legal what isn't), what classifies as animal abuse, how to humanely handle farm animals for the BU as a whole, as well as to identify and classify endangered species across BU, rather then on national levels.
BUCC: The Culture Council exists to aid in the preservation and culture of each nation within the BU. It's purpose is to aid in preserving historical and cultural locations, artifacts (monuments, items etc) in each nation, ensuring each nation retains their own unique culture, as well as preserving continental history. The Culture Council also exists to help protect the rights, beliefs and ideals of minority racial groups and religious groups across the continent.
BUHRC: The Human Rights Council exists as it's name implies, to ensure and uphold all forms of human rights within the union, as well as hold trial for those who've been caught violating human rights on both national and individual scales. Considering what can be considered invaluable human rights to some nations differ (For example one nation cold consider housing a human right while another considers it just a human need), and to create a formal, unified BU stance for Human rights.
With these councils being proposed by Konzask, and all that Konzask is putting into the BU, many of Konzask's citizens have jokingly begun referring to Konzask as the "Mom of Berinsky".
Minachia Calls for Intervention in Trimainia
In response to reports of reports of what appear to be terrorist attacks by an unknown cell in the Trimainian countryside, as well as Kefalarian calls in the UN for an intervention regarding thee events, the Minachian delegation to the Council of Remus has called on their Trimainian counterparts to give an explanation for what is going on in their country and has put forth a motion for the other members of the League to send joint investigative/interventive force (the first of its kind for the League) to Trimainia. The Empire also tentatively supports the Kefalarian motion for an intervention by the UN, but has stated that it would prefer for the matter to be left to the Reman League to handle rather than to forces from outside the continent.
Response to Minachia
In a surprise turn for many of those predicting Trimainia's response, the Trimainian government delivers a detailed report of the events and their past counterparts. According to the report, a group calling themselves the "Red Mountain Cult" which was birthed out of praise for the "true leaders of Maginot" who weren't born out of the "corrupted Trekan blood" and are seeking to separate Maginot from the rest of the kingdom, or go further and grab control of the country and turn it into a religious empire, based on an offshoot of Christianity that calls for repenting of the "sinners who have bathed themselves in the blood of the poor and the weak."
The Trimainian government also gives the Reman Council detailed military action against the cult and a list of potential locations of their holy sites, given that their fortress - The Red Mountain - fell to Trimainian forces by a combined arms attack with Trimainia's current king at the helm.
Response to Trimainia
The Imperial Foreign Ministry asks if the Trimainian Government would like assistance in quelling the Red Mountain Cult. If so, the Minachian, Vanyan, and Santomarese militaries would be able to coordinate with that of Trimainia through the agreements of the Reman League in order to assist in putting down the extremist group. However, it should be noted that it is unlikely that any of Santomare’s Defense Forces could be spared given the country’s own internal strife at the moment, and it is as of yet unknown whether the Vanyans would be willing to send their own forces to participate in an operation. Nevertheless, the Minachian Defense Ministry has stated that “the Imperial Armed Forces stand at the ready to provide assistance to our allies in defeating this vile group, should they so desire.”
The Zionian government has invited Minachia to send an embassy to the country. However, due to the until-recently-isolated country’s restrictions on foreign property ownership, an actual embassy building will be unavailable; instead, the ambassador and his staff must live and work aboard a ship in the harbor of the Zionian city of Tel’Sedar. Furthermore, the Zionians warn that all members of the ambassadorial staff should be armed.
The Imperial Foreign Ministry graciously accepts Zion’s invitation, and the Emperor himself has offered to donate a sizeable personal yacht of his, the Zephyrus, to act as the embassy ship. The legation will be accompanied by the destroyers NMI Peleus and NMI Romulus, and all members of the staff will be trained and equipped with, at minimum, a standard-issue P76 (Beretta 92) pistol. Michael Sollius has been appointed as the Emperor’s Legate (ambassador) to Zion.
