Palasia Pet Cemetery designated national monument

On November 10th, a charter was signed which gave Palasia Pet Cemetery official national monument status.

Palasia Pet Cemetery is located in Joyce Memorial Garden in Palasia.

The status of national monument, created by the Monuments and Heritage Act 2017, is for sites or structures within Austenasia which are of cultural or historical significance to the nation.

Palasia Pet Cemetery is the second site to be granted the status. The first national monument was another pet cemetery, that of Wrythe, and the Ministry for Culture is also exploring the option of granting the status to a monument recently erected in Nahona.

Palasia Pet Cemetery was officially opened on 21 July earlier this year after the burial of Pickles, the family dog of Lord John Gordon. It is also the final resting place of a rabbit, Sasha.

Its status as a national monument now enshrines within law the commitment of the Representative of Palasia to make provision for the maintenance of the cemetery, and increases the legal penalty for damaging the site.

Coronavirus scare in Palasia

3 September 2020 1 comment

A local lockdown has been announced by Palasia Town Council after one of the Town’s four residents developed symptoms of Covid-19.

The resident displaying symptoms is en-route to a testing facility in the United Kingdom.

A suspected case reported in Palasia in March resulted in a previous local lockdown, but the symptoms experienced by the individual soon abated.

The local lockdown will restrict travel for Palasians over the UK-Austenasia border to essential journeys only.

This also applies to Prime Minister Lord John Gordon, Representative of Palasia, who announced the news earlier this afternoon.

No suspected cases among Austenasian subjects, residents or officials have to date tested positive.

UPDATE 4 SEPTEMBER 14:40 – Lord Gordon has confirmed that the resident displaying symptoms has tested negative for coronavirus, and that the local lockdown has been lifted in response to this good news.

Local election results in

The results of yesterday’s local elections are now in. Elections for the office of Representative took place in the towns of Thanasia, Palasia, New Richmond and Harenfall.

In Palasia and New Richmond, the incumbents – Lord John Gordon and Lord Admiral Joseph Kennedy, respectively – were re-elected.

In Thanasia, Countess Eritoshi – who had served as the town’s Representative since its foundation in May 2013 – was replaced by her sister, Lady Imogen, who has chosen to assume the pseudonym of Lady Strawberry.

In Harenfall, every voter voted to abstain. The incumbent, Lord Sivert MacLean, has remained as Acting Representative, and he will soon take part in discussions with the Emperor and Prime Minister in regards to the future of the town.

9 February 2015 1 comment

Lord John Gordon has founded Palasian Left Unity as a political party.

The party supports an absolute monarchy, the legalisation of marijuana, national service, and a halt on expansion.

Palasian Left Unity currently has two members, who have been appointed constables by Palasia’s Police Inspector Airan Bloomfield after strong arguments taking place in the town between supporters of the two candidates for next month’s general election.

Palasian Left Unity is the second Austenasian political party, joining the Conservative Party, which was founded in October last year by Lord Charles (then known as Hengest) Crannis.

Palasia gains new resident

Austenasia’s population has increased by one, with a friend of Lord John Gordon taking up permanent residence in Palasia.

Airan Bloomfield, who has been appointed head of Palasia Police Force, moved to Palasia late last month. This has brought the total population of the Empire up to 42, and also made Palasia the most populated Town in Austenasia, with five residents.
