  1. La Nazione Laren Environmental Treaty Passes National Assembly The Grand Duchy of Soreana is the latest sovereign state to have formally adopted the provisions and targets laid out in the Laren Environmental Treaty developed in the Queendom of Morheim. The National Assembly passed it 92-34 and takes effect immediately. Prime Minister Pozzi addressed his colleagues before the vote saying that by taking action now, Soreana would be sending a statement to the rest of the world, and to other small nations, to participate in keeping the Eurth cleaner, and better for the next generation. The Treaty's approval comes after the car ban in Soreana within the central area of the capital (also known as the Old City). Pozzi said that holding such high standards as stated in the treaty, Soreana could use the opportunity to transform its economy and grow its nascent green technologies sector into one of the most recognized on the planet. Conservative elements in the Assembly said that the Grand Duchy would suffer and her people poorer for it. Grand Duchess Zaffino praised members of the Assembly for their historic vote and that both the people of Soreana and Eurth thank them for the step they took.
  2. I may be a peaceful Duchy of former Limonaian connection but that doesn't mean there isn't a quiet underworld involving a mafia or two. Perhaps I'll participate. I'll have to think about it more.
  3. La Nazione Preparations Underway for Annual Festival of the Sun Preparations for the Festival of the Sun, the Grand Duchy's most important event of the year, is now underway. The event sees upwards of 500,000 attendees lining the Old City's canals and docks watch dancers, musicians, acrobats, and other performers sail past. The Grand Duchess herself will take her ceremonial trip down the main canal on the royal vessel and get off at the central fire brazier located on a platform in the center of the old city where three canals meet. She is expected to light the brazier and give praise to the sun for bringing vital heat for warmth and wising for another year of prosperity. Fireworks are on order and will be fired following the Duchess' official duties. The Festival will take place on 21st June. Soreana's mayor, Antonio Rosario, said that this year's proceedings will be the largest in the history of the event.
  4. La Nazione Cars to be Banned from Half of Soreanna New City, Auto Club Protest Soreana's Mayor, Antonio Rosario, today released the results from the November 1st experiment of not permitted cars to traverse many streets of the capital's New City. Traffic in other parts of the city was down 21% from the average weekday and the percentage of individuals using public transport rose nearly 66%. Air pollution levels were at their lowest in ten years. Rosario said he was absolutely astounded by the success of the experiment and has decided to make it official across nearly half of the New City. The Old City, home to the Ducal Palace and the historic center, has had a car ban since 2000. Alfonso Prodi, the President of the Soreanan Auto Club, stated he was outraged that the Mayor and Council would take such a step. He said that it would harm the city's and the country's economy and would challenge the decision in court. Following his brief media appearance, Prodi was seen getting into his L-5 Lamborari and speeding through the financial district. If the Auto Club's lawsuit fails, the car ban would go into effect 1st April.
  5. La Nazione Minister of Health Sacked for Adultery Soreana is abuzz with chatter this morning as the Health Minister, Rocco Carello DM, was seen exiting the Chamber of Deputies in total disgrace. Officers of the Soreanan Royal Guard (who double as the Grand Duchy's police force) received an envelope a week ago from an anonymous source. Upon inspection, investigators discovered that the images within the sealed envelope consisted of dozens of photos which depicted the Minister involved in a series of sexual encounters with other women - based on the count, upwards of five women. The SRG reported its findings to the Minister of Justice who then conveyed the information to Prime Minister Pozzi who immediately summoned Carello and subsequently sacked him. Carello has been taken into police custody, awaiting his day in court. The former Deputies' wife, Carla said she has approached her attorney to initiate divorce proceedings. A spokesman of the Limonaian Catholic Church said that "there was no place for such sinful and immoral behavior in Soreana or anywhere on Eurth," they also mentioned, "adultery is an affront to the Highest Being and he should immediately seek treatment both with his local church and his personal doctors."
  6. La Nazione Griffons Eliminated from ANAFA, Not A Surprise To Anyone The inevitable has happened: the Griffons were eliminated the other day from the ANAFA Cup, a fate that has been abundantly clear since Week 3. The team had a completely devastating series and it is all the fault of the now-former coach Roberto Scozzari. He was immediately terminated following the final match. The President of the Soreanan Football Association has announced that they would begin looking for his replacement and commented that they would consider a coach from abroad to properly train the team ahead of the next major event. Soreana exits the competition with the worst standing, 1-8. The one player that had been keeping the team short of death was Lorenzo Orsini. He has returned to his regular domestic team in the town of Tenza. Despite the unfortunate result at the international stage, Lorenzo's agent has said that Soreana F.C. has actively shown interest in bringing Orsini onto their squad. He would not confirm if a formal offer has been made.
  7. La Nazione Lamborari Releases New Supercar, the L-5 Lamborari, Soreana's sole automotive manufacturer, today announced that it would be releasing a new car model to its line of supercars: the L-5. The presentation of the model comes on the company's restructuring following a dismal two years of sales as it competes against larger competitors including KAP of Prymont and Visto Cars. Alfonso Vitiello, CEO of Lamborari, said that he was optimistic that the L-5 would gain worthy praise in the car community. He said that everything had been extensively examined and recalibrated. Vitiello said the L-5 would have made the founder, Luca Lamborari, a very happy man. Alfonso Prodi, the President of the Soreanan Auto Club was the first to purchase an L-5. He was seen getting into the car, punching it to 100, and speeding out of the city into the Soreanan Forests to get acquainted with his latest addition. Lamborari's L-5 will be a major presence at the Soreana Car Expo in late January.
  8. La Gazetta dello Sport Soreanans Routed by Limonaians: Put the Team Out of Its Misery Staff Op-Ed The Soreanan Griffons were completely routed 0-3 by Limonaia in at the stadium in Limone. If you didn't watch it, you were better than the fifteen-thousand Soreanans who traveled across the border to see it in person. Our fellow writer who has been writing this column the last few weeks has been hospitalized as he experienced a heart attack from the disaster of a game. Everyone knows the Griffons aren't going to the knockout stage. That fact has been known since Week 3 and the final nail in the coffin was Orsini's abrupt departure at the conclusion of last week's game. The young 23-year-old was the only thing keeping the team together and it is abundantly clear that his leaving the team has had a profound negative impact upon the remaining players. Due to the situation, the coach has been forced to change the lineup, having less than 11 on the field and having a midfielder who is not adept at playing in a forward position to fill the gap. As we saw on the pitch, the player he chose was absolutely horrible and made no attempt to score in the slightest. We urge the Soreanan Football Association to fire the coach when this all over and find someone from abroad to do the job. Whoever this person ultimately is, our advice to him is that he actually removes all of the players except for forward Dante Parrotta (#10), while our colleague has been harsh over all of the players, we disagree with his opinion on Dante and think if he were given better attention and further skill development, he could be a strong leader and primary center of a new core for a revived Griffon team. Though there are still two more weeks of the round robin stage, Soreana should just capitulate and withdraw from the competition - if they remain on the pitch, they're only embarrassing the nation and our Grand Dutchess. If the coach has one scrap of actual competence, he'll take our advice. To conclude, we will leave you with this consistent opinion: we hate the coach. We're never going to love him. He is an absolute con-man and he has no true experience to run a team. Whoever hired him in the first place, should also be fired.
  9. La Nazione Lorenzo Orsini Leaves Soreanan National Football Team After Dispute with Coach Members of the Soreanan press witnessed a massive shouting match between emergency forward Lorenzo Orsini and Coach Roberto Scozzari following the away game against Seylos where their opponent beat them 1-0. The origins of the fight are still disputed but Orsini's agent claims that Scozzari was blaming him for the team's misfortunes, despite, as the agent stated, the young 23-year-old is responsible for nearly all of the team's goals through the competition-to-date. The debate got so heated that Orsini ripped off a team armband and threw it on the ground and walked off. Scozzari was witnessed shouting expletives at the player. Following the post-game confrontation, Orsini's agent officially notified both the coach, the Soreanan Football Association, and the ANAFA leadership that he would be leaving the national team, effective immediately. An SFA spokesperson said that the association's board has summoned the coach to meet with them in Soreana before their next match. They would not comment on whether he would be stripped of his position following the upcoming meeting. A representative for Scozzari could not be reached for comment.

  11. La Gazzetta dello Sport Another Loss: What a Surprise Opinion by Enzo Portella The Griffons lost to the Golden Boys of Derthalen 2-0. I mean, come on! We somehow beat the Variotan Golden Privateers and then just completely get destroyed in the following weeks. Someone one on the Variot team must have been asleep to allow us to win that match. And today's performance was pathetic. Lorenzo Orsini is the only good player on this team and he wasn't even on the team when the squad was formed, as you read in one of my previous columns. He should just walk away from the team now and forgo the League Cup and get signed up to a foreign team and then show his fellow countrymen how football is actually played and not this sad, sorted, and incompetent excuse of a group. It makes me mad just writing. You know what: Roberto, just give up, throw in the towel, and go back to your old job of running a brothel for tourists in the Old City of Soreana. I am sure your old girls would love to see you once more. I am sure our Grand Dutchess is sad to have even bothered to attend a match this year. The Prime Minister should demand hearings into Roberto's horrible strategies. I give up. Oh wait, I've given up since Week 1. I'm done with this. Note from La Gazzetta: we want to remind our readers that the Government does not have the power to remove the national football coach or liquidate the players. Only the Soreanan Football Association has that authority. A representative from the Prime Minister's office has informed us that a petition including the names of over 124,000 Soreanans was submitted demanding Pozzi remove the coach. No such action will be taken.
