The Truth Will Set You Free
A Chinese Diplomat and the head of the National Police Agency met with Ephyral diplomats regarding the proper punishment of a Selian youth. The youth in question was arrested for putting his hands on a police woman in line with a game called the Slapass Challenge. Ephyral news reacted with outrage at this story saying that this challenge was a "fertility ritual".
The teams discussed the matter for about two hours and came to an agreement. The youth will be caned 30 times on his bare back and hands with a rattan cane. Afterwards he will pay a monetary compensation to the victim and will immediately be deported once his sentence is carried out. At the press conference afterwards the head of the National Police, Chen Feng kuang or "Frank Chen", delivered a brief statement on the matter.
"We have successfully come to an agreement regarding crime and punishment of foreigners in China. Both sides are satisfied with the agreed upon punishment of this young man. Let this also serve as a warning to any potential criminals that want to come into my country and break the rules. Like what a criminal's parents should have done, we will punish you in a fitting way."
The States of Taiwan and Manchuria have completed fortifications against the Nihon threat. The exact details have been ommited but all that has been released is the border with Korea has been fully militarized and Taiwan has been fully turned into a fortress. The Territories of Hong Kong and Macau have had troops stationed at ports with orders to back up Taiwan.
The major rivers of the Yellow, Pearl and Yangtze have had Coast Guard troops from the Navy placed on patrols to prevent Nihoner entrances into the country.
The Chinese Government have announced that they will be placing sanctions on Nihon for actively taking part in meddling with an election and inspiring unrest. The list of sanctions are:
1. A ban on all Nihonese imports into China
2. A ban on all Nihonese travelers into China
3. All Nihonese ships and aeroplanes will not be allowed to enter ports of entry
4. Refusal to trade with all countries doing business with Nihon
The sanctions went into effect immediately upon the President signing the sanction bill. The sanctions will be in effect until Nihon ceases all hostile acts and opens for negotiations.

Impact from out of this world!
Yesterday, on Auguest 8, 2032, a meteorite entered Earths upper atmosphere and burned up leaving quite the light show over parts of the northern half of the country. It was reported observed from Prince Edward Island all the way to the Northwest Territories where it promptly impacted the ground some 150 KM from the town of Yellow Knife. Despite the distance, the sheer velocity and impact chattered windows for hundreds of kilometers. While astronomers estimate this meteorite was no more than square meter in size by the time it struck the Earth, it had enough velocity to cause immense destruction if it had landed close to a major metropolitan area. Thankfully, the impact was nowhere near a population center and casualties have only reported to have been very light with most a result of broken glass. A team of researchers from multiple universities are already preparing to make a trek to the impact sight to inspect the damage and take any samples back. The scientific community is quite frankly believes this to be an out of this world chance of scientific discovery.
Drilling Operations Continuing in the Chukchi
Republic Oil has reported that drilling operations in the Chukchi Sea have gone remarkably smooth since the operations have started back in 2030. Millions of barrels of oil have been produced and the reserve is expected to last for quite some time more. Because of this, stock prices for Republic Oil have skyrocketed in the past several weeks, with other oil companies having their stocks climb too as a result. Despite environmental and security concerns, the Washingtonian companies have a potentially great financial future ahead of them.
Defense of the Frontier
With tensions in the Far East still very hot, there is talk about stationing more military forces in Alaska to ensure it's defense. While it is already publicly acknowledged that some of the nations best aircraft, as well as ballistic missile defenses, are concentrated in The Last Frontier, defense officials on Ottawa are concerned that not enough Navy and Army ground forces stationed there to provide more of a solid defense. It has been proposed to either move another division, or reactivate an older unit to help bring up the defenses in Alaska to a healthier level. The massive amounts of unused land as well as relatively low population density means the State is more than suited to hold more units. While official action has not been taken, it is expected in the next financial year that such a move will be made. This will also decrease the pressure on the Alaskan National Guard as been constantly activated to active duty status since 2030.
The Nuakian Report
The Citizen's Light Within the Darkness
With the revelation that three top-secret projects with unknown origins were being funded by the government, several court cases were sent up to the Supreme Court of Nuak in an attempt to force the government to reveal what those programs pertain to. However, in the most decisive ruling of the court in its brief existence, Project Nothern Lights, Project Samaritan, and Project Velvet were all deemed essential to national security, receiving explict exclusions from the Federal Transparency Act of 2025.
In several trips abroad, high ranking members of the Nuakian Kingdom visited some neighbors in the international community, upon their return to the Nuakian International Airport, they were greeted with cheering crowds. Experts consider their actions a success

Chinese citizens will go to the polls to elect the president and the prime minister. Parties that will be on the ballot are:
Democratic Progressive Party
The hot button issues involve national defense , the economy and foreign relations. The Kuomintang is advocating a dual stance on defense with strength and diplomacy. The Democratic Progressives and Labour Parties are advocating a primarily diplomatic stance and gradually scaling back the defensive buildups. The People's Party and the Liberty Party take a similar stance to the Kuomintang of strength and diplomacy.
The lockdowns of Manchuria, Taiwan and Mongolia were terminated with approval from the Legislative and Executive Yuans. Despite this, the military will maintain a presence in those zones. No further buildups will occur but an action plan will remain in place "until the despotic regimes crumble" in the words of a field commander. Police have been assisting the military in border towns and will continue to.
Earthquake in Tibet
A small earthquake in Tibet created minor damage in Basum Township. The historical Rongbuk Monastery suffered damage to its living quarters and one of its temples. The earthquake created a small landslide in the Himilayas but Everest was not affected. No climbers in the mountains were trapped and only minor injuries were reported from falls. The tremors were picked up on seismograhs in Lhasa, triggering an alert for Western Tibet. The warning went out a minute before the quake started, allowing for locals to take cover.
The Midnight Star
The Plot Thickens
A raid in Darkmount's immigrant enclave of Little Khartoum was conducted today in coordination between Egyptian(Paglaum) authorities and the FEA(Foreign Espionage Agency). An hour-long firefight with resisting unidentified assailants ensued. An Agency spokesperson announced that the events of this morning were related to the ongoing investigation of the recent crash of EgyptAir Flight 388 at Darkmount International Airport several weeks ago and the likely involvement of an anti-Egyptian Sudanese independence movement. A menace who's slimy tendrils has seemingly inspired sympathy among some Sudanese immigrants to Ascoobis.
Ethnic tensions rise after the gruesome murder of a Selian Ephyral Exchange student by a fellow university classmate. Reportedly, Nathan Taylor brutally bludgeoned Petrus Dormaereon to death with an aluminum baseball bat outside his Hollywood dormitory two nights ago on rumors that Petrus had assaulted Taylor's sister, a classmate of the deceased, with a strike to her posterior. It is the latest chapter in the history of anti-Selian bigotry in Ascoobis, which has seen a rise after the emergence of the "Slapass Challenge".
Ascoobian diplomats have reached out to The Land of the Ephyral officials with pledges of transparency in their investigation of the alleged hate crime.
"This is tragic and not what Ascoobis aspires to be. Petrus' family sent their progeny to Ascoobis with the hope for the best education. We failed them. The living and deceased will be served justice.", reads a statement from the office to Ascoobian Ambassador to Ephyra Tycho Taelnaris.
