Mutemeadow wrote:Mutemeadow Prepares for its 1919 Landsgemeinde as Parliament Approves Security Regulations for the Event

The Landsgemeinde, the yearly gathering across Mutemeadow every year where the nation uses direct democracy to vote on matters of both local and national importance, as well as the federal budget, will take place in the coming weeks with several important proposals coming up. Green activists are moving for six solar powered factories to be subsidized for Mao Motors in the nation, as well as a national rejection of a fusion power plant. Conservative activists are moving, once again, for Mutemeadow to withdraw from the open border arrangement with the Arganorh Union, and all municipalities are required to hold local votes on their minimum wages after the Parliament approved a hike in the minimum wage this year.

Education Reform

Gujjubhai’s Ministry of Education has announced an education reform where the youth starting from Preschool all the way till Standard 7 (there are 12 standards), will have traditional education and learning only which means that the learning will be based upon religion (full religion education about Maitri religion), environmental education and how important it is to us and how it is part of our daily lives, how to use swords, traditional songs, culture, and dances including the famous sword dance, activities from hide-and-seek to zip lining, traditional sports, traditional mathematics and science, and the history of the Gujju and Bhili people and about Gujjubhai.
From Standard 8-12, the students would attend normal high schools just like most of the world and prepares them to face the real world. Most days, classes are outdoors in parks in order to get the traditional feeling and the sense that all Gujju people are connected to Mother Earth and that we belong outdoors for them to truly know everything about this world and it’s beauty and knowledge. From Standard 11, students must know the generalized field of study in which they wish to pursue a career in, so they can take courses based on the career of their focus or choice which makes them extra prepared for the career and the real world.

This educational reform for primary and secondary education (university not included as that is its own thing) is a push to get the people more enrooted with the Gujjubhai culture, the environment, and with themselves as students get an abundance of opportunities to find out more about themselves as a person.

This new system has received both praise and disapproval among the Gujjubhai populace as most people think that it is good that the new education system is going back to some of the older and traditional ways of doing things and it will prepare them for the real world more than modern education in the primary school phase, but some others think that it will drive away intelligence and modern education is the best (classroom learning and modern education).
President Antan Nawa has promised everyone that this education reform will produce hard working, culturally rich, smart, and progressive people that will enrich the nation and keep it grounded to realism, smart advancements, and our culture.

Lhanbryde Unable to Elect new Reich Chancellor - Snap Elections Called

After the resignation of Reich Chancellor Stefan Kandel due to racial comments he made in the past, the Reichstag was unable to form a new government, causing snap elections to be held in one month's time with President Oskar Winkler governing by decree until elections are held and a new government can be formed in the Reichstag.

ABO Entertainment Has Launched for our Roleplay World!!

ABO Entertainment, a long awaited project of the regional government and of our private ABO club, has finally been completed. It will be updated on a regular schedule with two new stories in 4 different categories: Culture, Current Events, Politics, and Crime. We will be providing the French, German, and Swedish versions of this site soon!! Please check out this website and let us know what you think, it has been in the works for a long time.

Cultural Stories:

1. The Winter Festival is happening right now in the RP world. Do you know anything about this holiday? If not, our story provides you an insight into a holiday that is celebrated around the world, and is the largest non-religious holiday.


2. Gymaria has the highest disposable income in the world, and the second highest wage. The nation, on top of that, has the highest amount of household savings on average - something promoted by their savings culture. But are too much savings a bad thing?


Current Events Stories:

1. The Refugee Crisis of Korasha is something that has been caused by the ongoing tribal wars on the continent. Ryumar has also been experiencing a refugee crisis. What caused this, and should countries in richer areas do more? What do these refugees actually go through to warrant them coming to richer countries? We tell the story of a refugee fleeing her homeland to show what these people go through to get to safety.


2. The Arganorh 20 Summit is the annual meeting of Arganorh's richest economies. This year's meeting was held in Rosair, Jerrette and ended this week. What was accomplished? Is this meeting beneficial to the continent, or a waste of time and tax money? ABO Reports.


Political Stories:

1. The Davintharians are set to elect a new House of Commons in the upcoming general elections. Widespread belief says that the Conservative Party is set for a crushing defeat at the polls, as feelings about incumbent Prime Minister Lewis McCormick turns sour.
