The Kaiser declared the abolition of Slavery
Kaiser Frederick has declared the abolition of slavery in front of the Imperial Senate and the Royal Council under the "Freedom and Equality Act".
Although his father, Wilhelm IV, has already abolished slavery, this only affected the Terran Sector Colonies and not the other sectors. This declaration will set free the Malzabian and Farfallian slaves and will be given equal treatment everywhere in the Tuirslandian Colonial Quadrant.
First Contact with the M'Daubi Federation
The Kaiser and the M'Daubi's Praetor Mashalja has personally met today at the Gainubia Capitol, Manduria V in the Fern Sector, They officially shook hands and planted a Mairnubian Mango tree and a Ka'Iv'A tree at the Gainubian Capitol as a symbol of peace and friendship. The Kaiser and the Praetor has agreed to a non-aggression pact and a trade agreement between the two Nations. This truly is a great day for the Reich!
Neferheim Sanctions Revised
After failing to pass in the Provincial Convention by a single vote, the previous bill which had moved through the General Assembly has been revised. The former bill consisted of a flat tariff rate of 20% on all goods with the exceptions of steel and coal (which would have a rate of 35%), along with political sanctions on the royal family of King Sapria Holensburg and the majority of the members on the Neferheim Council. This has been changed with the tariff rates each being decreased by 5%, and the amount of Councilmembers affected by the sanctions being greatly decreased to just under half of the total council.
This bill is set to be voted on in the General Assembly tomorrow, and if successful it will be delivered to the Provincial Convention two days after.
Voting on Sacrofnian Ascension to SADA
Only two days ago the Provincial Convention passed a resolution to approve Almeyynia's request to join the South Anterian Defense Alliance, and just yesterday the country of Sacrofnia has filed their own request to join. A congressional committee has again been tasked with reviewing the request and will be submitting their findings to the Provincial Convention on Friday, 10 July 2020. The request has been met with great approval in the Foxomexran government already, with most representatives in the P.C. expecting a swift passing of the resolution.
SEKIDEAN UNION FORMED
Two days ago, on the equator of Anteria, after week of negotiations between Shanghou Alliance (Gadorien, Monte Blanco, Prei Meas, Slovanska Kraj & Zhousheng) and the Purple Community (Canton River Delta, Great Golden Raj & Prei Meas), a new organisation is formed incorporating the two into one, new, structure.

12. If a new member asks to join, an unanimous vote is required. To apply, a country must be bordering an existing pact member or have a reasonable naval connection that can not be easily disrupted by a foreign non-pact military power in the region
The First Senshian Anteriaman reports
Aulic Council crackdown on AI, passes law to supervise AI activities in country // Cabinet of Van Hobbstadt criticised
6 days after the Aulic Council issued veto against government cooperation with a private AI company, the judges came to a conclusion:
Future AI research has to be registered on an official government list.
According to government investigations, senshian Minister of Digital Infrastructure Silas Drossel was offered service by the senshian AI firm "Alán"
after a virus started spreading to large numbers of digital devices in Senshen, including routers, PCs and sensitive servers of corporations last week.
Leading judge of this veto of trust, E. Weinheim, stated that government cooperation would be loosely founded and not in compliance with the DEA which
only allows the government of Senshen to force companies to fix security issues of their own product. "Such action would be both unnecessary and illegal,
as the DEA does not cover any cooperation with third party companies.", Weinheim exclaims.
Guy Casper van Hobbstadt, Prime Minister and cabinet leader of Senshen, was harshly criticised for the actions of Drossel. Many critics demanded Drossel to resign,
some even directly pointing towards Elias de Coligny, chancellor of Senshen, who remained silent for the entirety of this crisis. Though it seems impossible to prove,
the possibility that Drossel could've used this chaos to unleash a government controlled AI to the internet of Senshen drastically tanked trust towards the cabinet of van Hobbstadt.
Now that the AI Registry Act was passed, a council of experts will hold debates for what AIs will be held from the public - and which not.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs reduces travel and business restrictions with Neferheim
Today in a ruling by the Ministry of Foreign affairs reasoning due to the recent cancelling of sanctions on the nation the following two rulings have been made:
1. Travel restriction laxing on Neferheimers entering Prei Meas:
Neferheimers while still requiring a visa to enter the nation will now be under less scrutiny when entering the Nokor and will be allowed to enter with just a passport and a visa. (They will no longer be required to go through the process of applying for an entry permit and ticket from the Ministry of Foreign affairs and its sub department of tourism.)
2. Business restrictions laxed:
Now that sanctions are lifted on trade with Neferheim the Ministry of Foreign affairs decided to lift the Neferheim business fees which would force Preimean businesses from paying fees to the Prei Meas government before setting up and reduces the foreign operation taxes to the base level for other nations in addition to the regular tariffs if exporting directly to Prei Meas which is half of what the tariffs would be if it weren't a Prei Meas company.
Ruling on Corporation Tax on Places of Worship
Today in a ruling by the Supreme Court of Prei Meas they ruled 6-1 that it will be illegal to place any kind of corporation tax or any similar tax on places of worship.
The following is the majority opinion:
In the constitution of Prei Meas it states that "Religious equality and freedom shall be guaranteed under the law of Prei Meas to all citizens of the Nokor." Therefore placing taxation on a place of worship can make it so people would be charged to pray which violates the quote in question by prohibiting or making it difficult for poorer citizens on the Nokor to participate in religious services.
The following is the other majority opinion:
(Non-Profit Organization Taxation Protection Law of 1981)
According to the Non-Profit Organization Taxation Protection Law of 1981 "no classed non profit organization which is defined as any organization which does not engage in selling a product for profit but instead for charity back into the community or other charitable activities may be charged a corporation tax because the charity service provided fills the organization's obligations to the community." Therefor since places of worship are not working for profits but instead collect any funds just to keep it running and to give to charity drives and other organizations they can be classed as non-profit organizations and hence are protected by the Non-Profit Organization Law of 1981.
Due to the fact that Religious freedom is guaranteed equal corporation tax on any place of worship is not discriminatory because it does not discriminate against any religious group, therefor, equal corporation tax can be levied on houses of worship depending on the size of the certain house of worship in patrons in question.
Reduction of sanctions on Neferheim
After some discussions with Neferheim, the sebric Federal Parliament has made the decision of reducing its sanctions on Neferheim.
However, New Sebronia will still keep a close eye on Neferheim and its development as a fresh capitalist state. The reductions are as follows:
- Neferheimer vehicles are permitted transit through sebric sea-/airspace.
- Trade prohibition with neferheimer companies is reduced to only steel industry, but tariffs will be increased by 60% for the time being.
- Neferheim will no longer be considered a terrorist rogue state.
- Neferheimer politicians are permitted entry to New Sebronia.
- The sebric government is ready to discuss further matters with Neferheim.
