TWO HUNDRED YEARS A NATION!

While 2018 is already the Year of Celebration, next weekend will mark the heydays of national festivities as a myriad of concerts and parades will be held throughout the country. As every citizen knows, 20th May 1818 marks Salia's independence day with the signing of the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union by the first States-General. The former Dominions of the Saal, established as a result of Variota's Second Colonisation Wave, saw their relationship with the Variotan homeland further diminishing during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Religious differences and political tension finally drove the Salian States into open conflict with Variota. The result: the birth of a nation two centuries ago, with relations with our former overlords and modern brethren considered restored and honored.

GOVERNMENT DECISION TO BE A WINDY AFFAIR?

Since the early '90s coal-based energy has been abandoned in favour of cleaner alternatives. However, almost thirty years later Salia is somewhat lacking behind in green energy. Several government coalitions have throughout the years claimed technologies and alternatives to be either underdeveloped or not financially rewarding (read lucrative). As a result much of our energy, such as natural gas and nuclear energy, is being imported. Import implies costs, while investments for future energy production are getting postponed.

The presence of the Green-Liberals in both national and sub-national governments seems to finally change all that. Christian Democrat leader Alfred Hijns - claiming his party took the initiative - is drafting new legislation with Green-Liberal Thomas de Kooster, loosening regulation and providing subsidies to aid the renewable energy sector.

Salia has already up to seven wind turbine parks, ranging in between 200 and 300 MW, in the Ygros Sea and Sakspati Sea. Politicians, citizens and experts believe hydroelectricity and future investments in wind turbines and solar energy could drastically increase a surplus of renewable energy and lower costs in the long term due to diminishing energy imports.

AVENDGEM AWARDED CULTURAL CAPITAL 2018

The rural city of Avendgem, located in the Upper Salian region in the State of Rhenuwe, may proudly call itself the cultural capital of Salia for one full year. Having opened the new Natural-Historical Museum, renewed its Tourist Information Centre and restored an adjacent Archeological Park (integrating paintings and ceramics); Avendgem defeated the towns of Eeldert and Hennebrug. The latter also located in Rhenuwe.

Local restaurant owners claim they already witness the increased influx of local and foreign tourists in Avendgem. City Council expects revenue to go up with 20% for the coming legislature, considering its recent investments worthwhile.

USS COAST GUARD OPENS FIRE: TWO SANK

This morning two boats, both belonging to a Sakspati drug network, were spotted in territorial waters and ultimately intercepted. Initially considered to be two foreign ships in trouble, were soon identified as dangerous vessels after not complying with the necessary security and emergency procedures. The encounter resulted in a dangerous escape attempt.

The USSCG Michael deployed its helicoptre, the latter opening fire on the ships' engines from above. All 11 crew members were captured, 500 kgs of cocaine were confiscated, as were about 18 light assault rifles. Since both vessels were heavily damaged due to the gunfire, the USS Coast Guard decided to set them to ablaze by explosion and let the ships sink.
