Citizens of Fulgistan, rejoice!

Through diligent effort and the wisdom of the collective leadership, the Bureau for Rail and Urban Transport has completed the much-awaited high speed passenger rail line linking the capital Bogd Gioro with the city of Wulumuqi in Samarkhand province.

Speaking Monday, the Secretary for Rail and Urban Transport had this to say: "This is an effort that would not have been possible without the proud devotion displayed by the Fulgistanian worker towards his or her nation's improvement. It does our country great honor to know that her people are so hard-working and so skilled. Fulgistan as a nation looks forward to the expansion of the high-speed rail network in the near future, and hope, eventually, to implement a similar system nationwide."

Summer Scouting Program Enters Tenth Year

The Fulgistan Bureau for Culture and Social Harmony's "Saddle Scouts" program is celebrating its decade anniversary this June. The program, says Secretary of the Bureau Comrade Bayanchur Tekin, seeks to connect young Fulgistani in the large cities with a more pastoral, traditional lifestyle. "We're not promoting one over the other", Comrade Tekin clarified, "we simply want to reconnect today's urban teenagers with their cultural heritage, and to foster relationships and friendships between city-dwellers and those in Orda Communes."

The program consists of three weeks' life in an Orda Commune community, and all the riding, wrangling, and sleeping under the stars that comes along with it. Participants will also engage in cultural activities such as horse archery, falconry, and traditional music. The Saddle Scouts program is open to Urban Commune residents between the ages of 13 and 18. Those interested in attending should give notice to their municipality's Party office before June 10.

New Opportunities in Samarkhand Province SEZ

Further modifications are being made to the policies of the Samarkhand Province Special Economic Zone, according to a new report by the Bureau for Economics. In addition to the existing relaxed restrictions on gambling, the report also outlines tax breaks on luxury goods, including cigarettes, kreteks, alcohol, jewelry and souvenir goods. In addition, taxes on hotel rooms in Samarkhand Province and Wulumuqi city have been decreased by as much as 27% in some areas, all as a part of the government's plan to incentivize foreign tourism in the area.  Finally, in reflection of the growing number of visitors from neighboring @Variota, Wulumuqi Television (WMTV) will begin broadcasting Variotan NSTV Channels 3, 4, and 5.

Ramadan Begins

The Muslim month of Ramadan begins today. While many of the people of Fulgistan practice Islam, the government encourages citizens to place their own health over spiritual needs, and to refrain from fasting if it presents a health problem or inhibits personal productivity in school or in the workplace. Those citizens serving in the Revolutionary Guard are also strongly advised to refrain from fasting during Ramadan. Bureau for Culture and Social Harmony buildings will be decorated in honor of the occasion. The People's Council would like to wish all citizens of Fulgistan a happy Ramadan and a good day regardless of affiliation.

Bomb Attack in Jintakh Kills 8, leaves 30 injured


On the morning of Tuesday, June 5, the city of Jintakh's main square was rocked by an explosion; police believe that the device was triggered remotely and was hidden under a parked bus. Eight individuals were pronounced dead at the scene, while a further thirty were injured and taken to Jintakh People's Hospital for treatment. At least two of these individuals are reported to be in critical condition. The terror groups known as the Sons of Abu Azzam and the fascist Black Eagle Cabal have both claimed responsibility for the attack, although authorities have not yet issued a definitive statement on who is in fact, responsible. This attack comes during a relative lull in the conflicts between government forces and insurgents in Fulgistan's disputed southwest regions, and during the Muslim holiday of Ramadan; many of the victims were leaving the mosque after morning prayers when the explosion was triggered.

This attack occurred while General Secretary Almas was making a state visit to the United States of Prymont, and as such, he could not be immediately reached for comment. However, Deputy Secretary Bagabandi has issued a statement on behalf of the Central Committee expressing sorrow and profound anger at the ongoing attacks on civilians by terror groups in Fulgistan. "The valiant efforts of the Revolutionary Guard to secure Kunduz and Takhar provinces," he said, "will continue until the war against the terror groups has been won and the safety of Fulgistani citizens is assured. Our people are proud, and our resolve to fight injustice, extremism, and poisonous ideologies is only strengthened through adversity. For nearly a century we as a people have maintained the fight for freedom and equality against enemies both internal and external; that fight continues today. The Worker's Republic is fortunate to have a great diversity of faiths and ethnicities, but to be also united in our commitment to the values of the Revolution. Long live Fulgistan and all of its people!"

Party Officials to Mediate Border Dispute

Officials from the Bureau for Foreign Affairs will travel to the Republic of kwa-Mbuji to oversee the resolution of a disputed border between the neighboring states of the Amharic Social Republic and the Qothwane Confederation, at the request of the former. The two nations have historically been at odds over border incidents like this one, although this is the first time a third party has been asked to mediate discussions. Secretary for Foreign Affairs Ismail TianHan will attend a summit in the RfM's capital Ivoordorp from July 15th through to August 1st in the hopes of permanently securing stability for the people of the region. In a statement, Secretary TianHan stated that "although both Amhara and the Confederation practice some form of socialism, we do not intend to deviate from impartiality during the negotiation process, as our primary concern is to secure peace and stability for the two nations, and to encourage future cooperation between them." President Betje Zakuani had previously stated that her country would not be willing to host talks between its two neighbors, however President Zakuani has subsequently agreed after promises that Fulgistan's mediator role will include the prevention of hostilities during the talks and the subsequent implementation of their results.

Next High Speed Connection to be Grootwaterflakte

The Secretary for Rail and Urban Transport, following the completion of the high-speed rail line between Bogd Gioro and Wulumuqi, has announced that the next connection will, in fact, be outside of Fulgistan itself: the de facto Variotan capital of Grootwaterflakte. While arrangements and standards set by the Variotan Vrein rail agency are still in the process of being finalized, construction of the new rail line is set to begin in late August, and is expected to finish sometime between mid-late 2019 and 2020.

Minority group wins recognition in landmark legislation
Bogd Gioro, Fulgistan

     Today, one more ethnicity is added to the list on the upcoming 2021 census, the last such survey to be taken before the national centennial. Thanks to the efforts of a small but dedicated group of Fulgistani citizens, there will be another group joining the Fulgistani nation for the first time officially; starting in 2021, residents will be able to denote their ethnicity as "@Llaltan of @Seylosian origin". This group, which consists at present of only 3 individuals residing in the Worker's Republic, has nonetheless always been vocal about its desire for official recognition, and has had one particularly influential advocate in particular.

2D114B1F00000578-0-image-m-96_1443957873

     Representing Yulang County, Xiadong Province in the People's Great Khural for over 25 years, Comrade Gerald Carlton is a disproportionately influential legislator relative to his constituency's size. During his term in office, Comrade Carlton has been the champion of causes such as public transportation, the expansion and modernization of public healthcare, the reduction in size of the military and the dissolution of the Demonstration Army, some of which have been more successful than others. Perhaps most famously, Carlton is also outspoken about his Llaltan upbringing, before his adoption of leftist attitudes in college and eventual emigration to Fulgistan. He speaks about his homeland's culture and customs frequently at pubs and community halls around Yulang County, as well as on his biweekly Wulumuqi-distributed radio show, ¿Como Se Llaltas?, a talk broadcast about Llalta in the Mauridivian language, on Tuesday nights.

 

     "I've always been adamant about the need to get on the census," Comrade Carlton told me as we went on a leisurely bike ride through his neighborhood in Zhuangli, the county seat. The delegate is a bit of a local celebrity, and passersby cheerfully waved as we made our way down the main street, avoiding the occasional pot-bellied milk cow wandering along.

"Llaltans, you must understand, we're a terribly proud and community-oriented people. We like to stay in touch and stay connected to who we are, even if there's only a few of us around. We get together, we go out to dinner, it's a real community, it's flourishing, even though it's just the three of us. What d'you mean it's just "being friends?""

At time of writing, the Llaltan-Fulgistani community consists of Comrade Carlton, Mr. Jonathan Waites, a speech therapist at the Xintou School for the Deaf, and Ms. Corinne Andrews, owner of a Bogd Gioro area garden center. According to Mr. Carlton, the trio keep in touch primarily via email, but have sometimes made rail trips to conduct emergency meetings on the steps of the Great Khural, as they did during today's successful vote.

"We do our best to be here, you know, when push comes to shove, as it were," said Mr. Waites over video conference. "You know, spendin' time with my fellow Llaltans, it brings back memories of those halcyon days of my youth. Walking through town...sayin' your good mornings to Bill, and Bill, and Fred, and Walt, and Kate, and Pippa, and Bill...". Mr. Waites continued for some time. "But o'course we're committed citizens now, in our own way. I came because I wanted to heal the sick, but I'm happy to, er, do other things for my country too, I suppose."

However sweet the taste of victory may be, there are some indications that the  Llaltan census matter may not be entirely settled.

“Well, not to be a schismatic or a subversive, but I'm a quarter Eirish, on my mum's side, so I reckon we'll need one for that as well," says Andrews. "I personally believe in the revolutionary takeover and independency of Eire, but since I've only got about a quarter stake in it, I reckon I'll stick to checking a box for now."
