  1. A bearded man wearing a Sayfi military uniform bursts through a door labeled 'War Room' and says "Abu Hajaar, the President and Parliament have approved war plans X, C, and D for action against the-" "Shut up Ahmed, we're watching the news." "BREAKING NEWS: COORDINATED TERRORIST ATTACKS ACROSS THE COUNTRY, MANY FATALITIES AND INJURIES, ELECTIONS PUT ON HOLD" Blares across the television screen mounted in the middle of the room, "There has been multiple terrorist attacks across many polling stations across the country, the current amount of fatalities is unknown and 15 suspects have been apprehended by government authorities. As you can see from this cellphone footage given to us, the suspects detonated bombs at the polling stations and began opening fire on the crowds shouting the slogan of "Fedayeen Sayf" a militant organization that started the civil war in the 1970's. Their goal in the civil war was to return the old monarchy that was pushed out of Sayf into power. That old monarchy fled Sayf after the coup in 1906 to the Tahir Sultanate, which was ruled by their relatives. Since the early 1900's the country has been in decline and the monarchy refuses to reform, and it is widely believed that Fedayeen Sayf is funded and backed by the sultanate. These attacks are clearly an attempt by Fedayeen Sayf to destabilize the country in an already unstable time, seeing as our long-time president since 1996 is finally retiring, with his retirement cut short by these attacks as the electons have been put on hold. We can only wonder what action will be taken by the government against Fedayeen Sayf and the Tahir Sultanate." Abu Hajaar shuts the television off using a remote and takes a long draw from his hookah. "Back during the civil war we were no where near as capable to bring Tahir to it's knees, now they but a dying country with a backwards government. Enact plan C, and prepare for an invasion of the Tahir Sultanate, they have been harboring terrorists from within their country for too long, and we are much stronger then we were in 1974. We also have the support of a separatist militia within the country, and likely the support of the people living within it as they've been suffering through their oppression. If there are no questions, enact the plan, and release a press release about our 'intervention' in Tahir." All of the men in the room quickly pull out their mobile devices and begin shouting orders into them. ooc: more posts detailing the actual plan coming soon

  3. The Arab Republic of Sayf declares that a State of War now exists between the Arab Republic of Sayf and the Confederated Empire of Derthalen. The Arab Republic of Sayf is acting in defense of it's international interests, as well as in defense for the acts of war perpetrated against its allies the Grand Duchy of Limonaia, the Kingdom of Seylos and the Worker's Republic of Fulgistan. The Parliament of the Arab Republic of Sayf has approved and will be acting on it's declaration of war on the Confederated Empire of Derthalen.
  4. I've been quite behind on this, just letting everyone know that the deadline to submit your car and driver is tomorrow at 12:00 PM central time and the main thread is going up that day.
  5. After weeks of polling Sayfi citizens across Sayf, including all the major cities, and the countryside here are the first nationwide poll results of this election Unsurprisingly, Abdullah Al-Fiqri maintains the lead although it also proves that he is not as popular as the current President, Ali Al-Karim who in polls maintained a strong majority of 75% throughout all polls. It is clear many people are taking a look at their political beliefs, even straying towards other candidates such as Tahira Muqasim whose party has experienced an unexpected boost in popularity since Ali Al-Karim announced he was not running in the next election. She is barely holding herself above Hajra Nasir of the Republican Left whose party also benefited from Ali Al-Karim's announcement. The smaller more radical parties of the Sayfi party such as the Revolutionary Party, the Conservative Action party, and the Islamic Brotherhood have all undergone boosts in popularity, most notably, the Revolutionary party, whose popularity has increased almost ten-fold. With the upcoming debate next week against all the candidates these numbers are sure to change for better or for worse. What we know for sure, the outcome is not close to being decided.
  6. War Department, Sayfi Military Headquarters, Baghdad, Sayf - 14:50 A Sayfi man smoking a cigar and wearing a trenchcoat and suit from an expensive Liomonian designer brand Certovino walks into the room, in the room, there is a long conference table with a few men of varying ages wearing decorated Sayfi service uniforms, all now staring at the man that just walked into the room before he says anything, he pulls off his coat and throws it across the room, where it lands atop a coat hanger. He plops himself down onto an opulent leather office chair across from the most decorated man in the room and stubs out his cigar on to one of ten ashtrays laid out across the table before pulling out another cigar from his shirt pocket, dragging it along his nose, sniffing it deeply before placing it in his mouth, cutting it with a silver cigar cutter, and toasting it with a lighter to light it and begin smoking it. "Fancy seeing you here, Fahri." says the man sitting across from him at the other end of the table. "Yes, it is a fancy seeing me, isn't it Abu-Hajaar?" Abu-Hajaar takes a deep puff from his hookah before responding with "To what do we owe the pleasure?" Fahri kicks his legs up onto the mahogany conference table and takes a quick puff from his from his cigar before responding "Put all the Aluxia shit on the backburner for now, we've got bigger fish to fry boys. Derthalen-" Abu-Hajaar interrupts "We've been keeping a keen eye on the situation in Derthalen. We recently flew our spy planes to locate primary military targets and resources. We have a fleet ready for action in the Dolch See, we've been coordinating with our allies and-" Fahri groans loudly before saying "Don't care- my job is usually schmoozing with foreign dignitaries and getting free five-star accommodation, and telling you guys what shit to f*ck up. Seylos, Limonia, and Fulgistan are ready to go to war with Derthalen and so are we, get your planes n' shit in Seylos and prepare your men for whatever war scenario you got in those filing cabinets and get this over with. I have a flight to catch to somewhere nice so I'm out of here. Smells like washed up soldiers and tobacco in here." Fahri grabs his coat and throws the door open and proceed to walk out of the room, as he exits, Abu-Hajaar shouts "Gawad!" Abu-Hajaar sighs and takes another deep puff from his hookah before speaking "Execute phase one of scenario A-SE1 also known as 'Operation Defuedalization', get our planes and men in Seylos and continue our current operations in the Dolch See." All the men quickly fumble with their papers, pulling out their phones and shouting orders. Defueadilization is a go. Sayfi soldiers in Basra marching into their designated ships to departure towards Seylos.
  7. Beginning later this year, a new commodity will be planted in fields and open areas across Sayf that likely will change the landscape. These "farmers" are government-subsidized energy companies that have begun manufacturing solar panels and building solar power plants as a part of a government directive to remove the Sayfi economy's dependency on oil as a response to the eventual lack of need for oil on Eurth. As projects are approved and ramp up, arrays of tightly bunched panels tilted south are expected to replace what had been crops or open land, with some projects encompassing up to 20 acres. The government has been making serious strides to remove Sayf's dependency on oil, such as acquiring the largest solar company in Sayf, Al-Taqat Shmas Incorporated, and investing 13.3 billion dinars to ramp up solar panel manufacturing. "We believe that if Sayf begins producing the means for renewable energy, we can recoup income lost from oil," says Mohammed ibn Farshad, head of the Sayfi National Committee for Renewable Energy. This is not the only effort Sayf is making towards decreasing emissions and supporting the replacement of oil in exchange for renewable energy, local auto manufacturers such as Al-Naiem, Tawahad, and Wiladat are making efforts to put electric, zero-emission vehicles on the road. Overall, this will lead to an improvement in air quality, a decrease in the cost of energy, and spark economic development.
  8. Right so this to plan and discuss the elections going on in Sayf. There is no main thread, and most updates will come in my news thread. There's going to be a way where other countries can attempt to influence the election, either by attempting to rig or fund a certain party to help them win. Election influence form: https://goo.gl/forms/1Z4DgEKwD10oOKKa2 National Democratic Party - Social Democrat Republican Left of Sayf - neo-liberalism/centrism Conservative Action Party - liberal conservatism Islamic Brotherhood of Sayf - Traditional Islamic Law Sayfi Revolutionary Party - Marxism Libertarian Liberation Party - Anarcho-Capitalism Baath Party - Ba'athism
  9. SAYF NATIONAL NEWS: ELECTION SPECIAL Rashid: Hello viewers, I'm Rashid- Fatima: I'm Fatima- Fatima and Rashid: and this is SNN: Newshour! Rashid: Today we'll be discussing the upcoming presidential election. Fatima: Yes, it's been 5 years since the last elections in 2014, where our current president Ali Al-Karim was elected for his third term. Rashid: Yes, and unfortunately Ali Al-Karim will not be running again. Fatima: Such a shame, he's currently out longest running president at fifteen years, and such is not a surprise with a 75% approval rate. Rashid: Yes, he's always been a man of the people, but he's retiring after this term. I imagine it's quite exhausting running Sayf for fifteen years with little to no breaks. Fatima: Yes, of course. Let's move on, candidates have been on the campaign trail since last year and since Ali Al-Karim isn't running, they may actually have a chance since he was such a popular candidate, him retiring leaves a lot of voters looking for a replacement. Rashid: Speaking of which, here's the list of people who've announced their candidacy: Abdullah Al-Fiqri: Candidate from the National Democratic Party, he's a social democrat from southern Sayf. Tahira Muqasim: Controversial female candidate from the Ba'ath party, she's a Ba'ath socialist who wants to restore Sayf's former glory using socialism. Hajra Nasir: Another female candidate, she's from the Republic Left party, and is quickly rising in popularity, backing some of Al-Karim's policies as well as critiquing them. Abbad Al-Shakush: A former Sayfi military general, a critic of the leftist parties, and of course from the Conservative Action party. Akram Fadel: Working with the Islamic Brotherhood, wants to take Sayf back to it's Sa Haran roots. I expect a dive in the number of seats the party holds. Faizan Tariq: A communist of the Sayfi Revolutionary Party, wants to totally reform the country and make it into a full communist state. No candidate from the Libertarian Liberation party as of yet, but they usually announce later along the campaign trail. Fatima: Excellent, remember to vote on July 5th on election day! Rashid: I'm Rashid! Fatima: and I'm Fatima! Rashid and Fatima: and this is Newshour signing out!

  11. I would like to participate, I'd imagine my country go into full lockdown mode, quarantines, curfew, no travel in or out of the country, restricted travel within the country, the works. We'd probably also work towards a cure, being the main focus of the nation other minimizing infection.
  12. Dolch See, Eurth. It has been a few days attempting to locate the ship that called for help. "Commodore, we've been sailing for days trying to locate our ship. This is taking longer than expected. I suggest we turn back-" The Commodore would cut him off "No need to tell me that, we've been reassigned." "Reassigned sir?" replied the First Mate "Yes, we're to regroup with a fleet that's been assigned to be the a permanently assigned to the Dolch See, Baghdad has reevaluated the region as a high-risk conflict zone and we need to protect our interests in the area, so they made the executive decision to beef up security here. Anyways, plot course for these coordinates, we need to resupply and join the new group." "Yes, sir." The three ships apart of the Sayfi fleet depart to join their new assignment.

  14. The Sayfi government is supporting the FAA due to the fact that our nation needs more allies in comrades in our vicinity, and it would help secure a close ally. The Sayfi government is willing to disregard attacks in Aluxia due to the fact that Sayf itself has gone through instability and conflict leading up to the establishment of it's democracy, and we believe that with enough time Aluxia can become a stable nation without an autocracy. To eleborate on what I said earlier, we've really no like-minded or friendly nations in Argis with the exception of Seylos, if you can consider him Argic.
