Avalanche in the Sadheshi Province leaves three injured.

An avalanche hit the village of Kishu in the Sadheshi Province of Mahana, injuring three residents and one hospitalised with serious injury. The avalanche was caused by a build up of snow that was disturbed by a small-scale earthquake that hit the region at 13:00, 5th April 2022. This caused the avalanche which fell, damaging buildings in the village and injuring three, with one being hospitalised with a 'serious injury'.

Breaking isolationism?

Since Ranju Bastola's appointment as Head of Government, he has made his primary goal to break Mahana's renowned isolationism and to make closer, stronger relationships with nations and to use that to help build the nation's economy. Before his time in office, Mahana were only a member of one organisation, a regional forum known as the Central Oriental Forum (Later the Oriental Association for Regional Cooperation). Since then, Bastola has made great strides in building relationships with Mahana's neighbours, notably with Kotowari but also with Tamur, Mekabiri and Orioni.

The largest step forward for Mahana in breaking the historic isolationism and loner mentality was the entering as an observer state of the Entente of Oriental States (EOS) in 2017, as soon as the option came available. It is known publicly that Ranju Bastola and Bina Sharma both have positive views of the Entente, with Bastola publicly showing interest of a future Mahanan enterance into the entente in 2020. Since then, however, no further steps had been taken, until the last week. A national referendum has been called by the Federal Parliament which will last three weeks. The vote is "For or Against the joining of the Entente of Oriental States", which if passed will mean the beginning of the Mahanan bid to enter the Entente.spacer.png

5th June 2022

102 Years Free

The 5th of June marks the date of the last recorded case of the Byzantine Flu in Mahana, in 1920. Mahana was a nation heavily affected by the flu in the early 20th century, losing an estimated 250,000 people due to it. The flu spread to Mahana through trade routes into the Bay of Bhuram that came directly from the Byzantine Sea, which was the spreading place of the flu. The government at the time struggled to control the flu, being fairly poor and with the people living in poverty and poor hygiene. Furthermore, when it arrived in Mahana the nation hadn't had any significant historic pandemics and so the government became unsure of how to deal with the outbreak. The flu became so common in Mahana that even a member of the royal family, the king's daughter, caught the flu and passed away from it.

As the flu became international, Mahana heard of the ways other nations dealt with the flu using quarantining and social distancing as well as closing many public areas. They spread the word in national newspaper and by 1920 the last ever case was reported in Veydu, before fading out as it did in the rest of the wurld. 

(Pictured below is a quarantining of some infected with the flu in Jutpandi, 1918.)
