New Town established at Chalcedon

A new Austenasian Town was yesterday founded as an enclave of Kadikoy, Turkey, the modern-day site of the ancient town of Chalcedon.

The new Town consists of a section of an apartment building and is home to six people. One of its residents, İsmetcan Saraç – who initiated the process of having the properties join Austenasia – has been granted the title Count of Bithynia and appointed Acting Representative of the new Town.

Said new Town has taken its name, Chalcedon, from the settlement which has occupied the site since prehistoric times and is most famous as having been the venue of the Fourth Ecumenical Council in 451.

Chalcedon was only renamed to Kadikoy in the sixteenth century, and is now a suburb of the Anatolian part of Constantinople (Istanbul).

The Austenasian Town’s resurrection of the prestigious Greco-Roman name of the location can be seen as a further emphasis of the Empire’s Roman and Christian heritage, although all six residents of Austenasian Chalcedon are Muslim.

Lord Saraç has become the fourth Representative to join the Fatherland Party, giving the Opposition an equal number of seats in Parliament as the governmental coalition.

Furthermore, this most recent expansion has increased Austenasia’s population to 97, the highest so far in its history.

Solar farm to be established on new Territory

An Act of Parliament passed yesterday evening has annexed a new Territory to Austenasia from Turkey, joining that of Laranda, which joined Austenasia in May.

New territory Seleucia ad Cilicia

The new Territory is situated near Silifke, a town which was known as Seleucia in antiquity. It has therefore been named Seleucia ad Cilicia in reference to its past.

Seleucia ad Cilicia consists of a plot of uninhabited land owned by Lord Dionisiy Tezdhzan-Smahin, who – as with Laranda earlier this year – claimed the land for Austenasia.

Lord Tezdzhan-Smahin, who was appointed Governor of the new territory by Parliament, has announced his intention to install solar panels in Seleucia ad Cilicia. These solar panels will produce renewable electricity which will be sold to the neighbouring country of Turkey, making Seleucia ad Cilicia one of the only areas of Austenasia to produce an export in this way.

Austenasia expanded yet again on Friday 23rd with the annexation of Oberfalcer, a group of fields in south-eastern France.

The founder of the territory, Pierre-Henri Paccard, has been named Governor of Oberfalcer and given the title Duke of Viennensis.

This marks the first time that Austenasia has annexed land from France. Oberfalcer, together with Theodosiopolis, have together been placed in the new Region of Gallia for administrative purposes.

Oberfalcer measures roughly 588,400 square feet.

New Californian territory annexed

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

Costa Del Sol is comprised of the garden of a residential property. It was claimed for and ceded to Austenasia by one of the residents of said property, the now Lady Sophia Albina.

Lady Albina has been appointed Governor of Costa Del Sol, and will administer it on behalf of the government.

The new Territory is an enclave of California, and measures roughly 2,563 square feet.

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.

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.
