The Empire continued to expand on Thursday 27th with the annexation of Costa Del Sol, its newest Territory.

The Town of Gebirgspark is bordered by the Slovakian capital Bratislava, and consists of a residential property along with its garden. It has a population of three, all of whom are Roman Catholic.

Gebirgspark is currently represented by its founder, Lord Krištof Fondrk, who has been appointed its Acting Representative by Parliament. In an era of increasingly partisan politics, both the government and opposition are waiting to see which party – if any – Lord Fondrk aligns himself with.

This most recent annexation has increased Austenasia’s population to 88.

Territorial reforms enacted by Parliament

12 June 2019 1 comment

The Empire sees various territorial reforms with the passage of the Amerdansk, Augusta and New Richmond Act 2019.

The Act, proposed to the House of Representatives by Prime Minister Lord Admiral Joseph Kennedy, has separated the former New Richmond borough of North New Saint Josephsburg from that City, becoming the Town of Augusta. The now Lord Riley Kennedy, Baron of Augusta – the younger brother of Lord Admiral Joseph – has been appointed Acting Representative of Augusta pending a local election. Lord Riley has joined the Imperial Party, and as a Representative has become a member of the Imperial Party Board (the governing body of the party).

The legislation has also re-annexed portions of the New Richmond borough of Saint Josephsburg which were previously ceded to the United States by the New Richmond Act 2014. The newly re-annexed land consists of the house where Lord Admiral Joseph resided at the time of New Richmond’s transition from a Crown Dependency to a Town, and is currently resided in by his aunt and her three children.

The Town of Amerdansk, formerly represented in Parliament by Lord Anthony Clark, has been transitioned to a Crown Dependency, which the now The Rt. Hon. Anthony Clark has been appointed Governing Commissioner of. This is in response to Clark’s withdrawal from active politics, including within Parliament.

Austenasia grows with huge Turkish annexation

The size of Austenasia’s territorial claims more than doubled yesterday after the annexation of the new Territory of Laranda.

Laranda consists of 165 acres of farmland. Now an enclave of southern Turkey, it is the private property of Lord Dionisiy Tedzhan-Smahin, who inherited the land from an ancestor who was a local landowner.

Laranda is so large that it now makes up 59.7% of Austenasia’s total land area.

Lord Tedzhan-Smahin, who also serves as Representative of Theodosiopolis, has been appointed Governor of Laranda, but as he no longer lives nearby the day-to-day administration of the land will be undertaken by his cousin, the Deputy Governor.

The name Laranda is derived from the former name of Karaman, a nearby Turkish city.

These were the first elections to take place in Theodosiopolis and Dragovina since their foundation in March and April respectively. Both saw their Acting Representatives elected as Representatives proper.

New Richmond saw its Representative, the Prime Minister Lord Admiral Kennedy, re-elected for the sixth time in a row.

As New Richmond is a City, its subjects were also voting for a Mayor. The previous Mayor of New Richmond, Captain William Kennedy, had resigned on 24 April, with his nephew Alex Francis being appointed Acting Mayor by the city council.

Tuesday’s election saw Mr Francis elected as Mayor of New Richmond with 100% of the vote with a 75% turnout of twelve people.

Mr Francis is a member of the Imperial Party, which currently holds a plurality of seats in Parliament.
