All military constructions have been completed:

[b]Border defenses:[/b]

[b]1.[/b]The Border defenses consist of bunkers, trenches, barbed wire, land mines, and Artillery. A first obstacle for any invader is the land mines placed in front of the defenses. The land mines consist of wooden and regular metal land mines. Also placed in along with these mines are anti-tank mines, and they are also covered by either wood or metal. All mines used are very powerful and effective.

[b]2.[/b] The next set of defenses are barbed wire. They are set up behind the land mine section. A few more mines are placed along with the barbed wire and anti-tank and personnel defenses.

[b]3.[/b] Behind the barbed wire section is trench section. These trenches are occupied by troops with MG's, grenades, and panzerfaust. There are at least 100 troops occupying each trench section.

[b]4.[/b] Finally after the trenches the next line of defense is a long line of bunkers. These bunkers are reinforced with steal and have large amounts of soil covering their walls and roof. Inside the bunkers there are two MG positions and a small 88mm anti-tank gun. Typically eight troops occupy each bunker. Each bunker also has first aid kits, fire extinguisher, food, ammunition, and communication to the local HQ's and other bunkers. Each bunker is connected by a simple telephone with a wire, which is placed deep under ground and its location is classified. Also used for communication but not often is Morse code.

[b]5.[/b] A reasonable distance behind the bunkers are the artillery positions. The artillery is made up of Soviet 76mm anti-tank gun, Katyusha multiple rocket launchers, German 88mm anti-tank gun, US 155mm howitzer, German 76mm Minenwerfer, and British 4.5IN Howitzer. These artillery positions have communications connected to the bunkers.
Also defending these positions, including the forward defenses and anti-aircraft positions.

All these positions are camouflaged by the forests lining the Prussian border and military placed vegetation. All of these positions are hidden, and are classified. Also the artillery positions and defense lines are connected by railway so that more troops and ammunition can be brought to the front.

[b]Airbases:[/b]

Three airbases have been constructed at hidden locations inside Prussia. All three airbases are dug deep into local hills or mountain positions. These bases can hold up to 15 aircraft.

[b]Radar:[/b]

The radar system of Prussia consists of the German Würzburg-Riese system. A 7.5-m (25-foot) dish that was mounted on a railway carriage, to detect incoming aircraft. The system also had an increased transmitter power; combined with the enlarged reflector, this resulted in a range of up to 70 km, as well as greatly increased accuracy.

Yesterday in the airspace over Prussia, the Kaiser Johann von Fichtenstein's private jet on its way back from Austria, was destroyed by a explosion caused by a explosive device inside the air craft. It is not known whom planted the explosive device but some officials claim it was the actions of Prussians disagreeing with the Kaiser's visit to Austria.

A funeral was held in New Berlin today for the beloved Kaiser Johann von Fichtenstein. Over a million people came to pay their respects, as the Kaiser was laid to rest.

As ceremonial after the funeral the next Imperial would be crowned Kaiser of Prussia. The family next in line to the Prussian throne is the Hapsburg Family. Later today Archduke Frederick von Hapsburg was crowned Kaiser of Prussia. Many people rejoiced and celebrated throughout Prussia, as a new era was about to begin in Prussian history.

The Germanic Union Government sends its condolences for the Fallen Kaiser and extends their recognition and respect for the New One.

[i]"If there is anything we might be able to do for our Neighbors and Brothers, I trust that in this time of hardship they shall let us know."[/i]

[color="#FF0000"][size="5"][center]Deutsche-Bohemia[/center][/size][/color]

Earlier today, Kaiser Frederick von Hapsburg had asked the Imperial Council to approve the act of name change from Prussia to Deutsche-Bohemia. The Kaiser feels it is better to be politically correct rather then stealing the name of the lands of Prussia from our Germanic Allie neighboring us. The act was approved by the Council with popular support and the people are very pleased with this new change.

Kaiser Frederick von Hapsburg had been heard on national radio saying: [i]I truly hope this act improve's relations with our Germanic Brother's to the west.[/i] The Kaiser Frederick also introduced a new flag to represent Deutsche-Bohemia, the flag of Hapsburg Family. Once again the people were delighted with these new acts, and the Kaiser hopes the international community will be delighted too.

"Absolutely pathetic." Bridgette said throwing down the paper in front of her. "A cousin asserts himself in the Sudetenland, in a land of 'Prussians' and now switches to a land of 'Austrians'. Next they'll be Danes or Poles."

Sebastian chuckled as he picked the paper off the ground. "You get too carried away about these things. You think that this Frederick would help the Empress if things go...awry."

"An Austria for Austrians. If he wishes to tie his fate to that of his cousins. That is up to him, but I'll be there to remind him of his loyalty." The Chancellor smiled looking out the window of her residence towards the north.

Wedding invitations have been sent to various nations such as: Germany, Austria, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, GNED, Slavorussia, Finland, Eastern France, Athenian Federation, Valencia-Monaco and Sweden.

[color="#FF0000"][size="5"][center]Bohemian-Germanic Pact[/center][/size][/color]

Early today in the grand capital of Karlsbad, in the conference room of the Imperial Palace, the Kaiser Frederick and a representative from the Althing signed a pact between Germany and Deutsche-Bohemia. Both sides agreed a Mutual Defensive Pact and increased trade, which should help both economies. The Kaiser was over-joyed and the Bohemian people celebrated too. It was great and historic day between both nations. The Kaiser hopes that relations will keep improving between Germany and Bohemia.

[center][img]http://web.mit.edu/civenv/idr/images/Infrastructure_Collage.jpg[/img][/center]

Many changes have taken place within the last few months in Bohemia. Many infrastructural improvements occurred, along with military expansion and name changes. Bohemia's energy supply changed from coal and oil to Solar power, Wind power, and Hydro power.

[i][b]Energy[/b][/i]
Large wind farms have been created in the southern lands of Bohemia while Solar farms are scattered throughout the country. Hydro power is drawn from the river Elbe in the northern lands of Bohemia. All these energy facilities have been constructed in the less attractive areas of Bohemia. This is so because the Kaiser does not want the natural beauty of Bohemia to be stained. Large amounts of energy are being created from this new energy source. So much so that Bohemia can spare a large amount. The Kaiser is considering using this spare electricity to help Germany.

[i][b]Transport[/b][/i]
As this energy change occurred new railways were constructed in Bohemia connecting all the major city's and connecting to railways which entered into Germany and GNED. The new rail system is called the "Bohemia-Bahnhof". Also a large motorway system has been created throughout Bohemia. Its roads also connect all major city's and links up with motorways in Germany and GNED. The motorway has been named the "Bohemia-Autobahn"

[i][b]Name Change[/b][/i]
The Kaiser has renamed the capital of New Berlin to Karlsbad, the original name. This is so because the Kaiser believes that copying the name of the German capital is just ridiculous and Bohemia needs to show differences as well as similarities to Germany.

[i][b]Military[/b][/i]
The Deutsche-Bohemia Army (DBA) has increased its numbers to 60,000 under the orders of the Kaiser. The Kaiser said early today "It will secure the people of Bohemia from does who wish to harm them". Over the next few years the Kaiser hopes to increase all sections of the military.

[color="#FF0000"][size="5"][center]Day of Joy[/center][/size][/color]
[center][img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/7/76/Karlsbad-Kirche.jpg/402px-Karlsbad-Kirche.jpg[/img][/center]

It was a lovely day for a wedding, clear and warm in Karlsbad. The view from the top of the Church of St. Mary Magdalene was very nice, especially the dense forests surrounding the capital. Frederick was waiting at the top of the alter, standing beside his best man, his brother Ludwig Von Hapsburg. Frederick was nervous but he did not show it, he looked behind him and he could see the church was packed to the brim with aristocracy, politicians, diplomats, family, and friends.

The church itself was decorated with flowers of many beautiful colour's while the crests of both family's draped the walls. The men of the Imperial guard were dressed in traditional uniform and stood guard at the entrances with great discipline. The people in the church themselves where dressed in their finest. Slim black suits for the gentlemen, and elegant white, blue, and red dresses for the ladies of the church. Frederick was dressed in full military uniform of the Imperial Guards, just as his brother was.

The church was illuminated by beautiful rays of light entering from the large windows of the church. It was the perfect day anyone could have dreamed of.

All at once the main doors of the church opened. Everyone rose up from their seats and looked behind them with the greatest manners. Sophia emerged from the sunlight in a beautiful elegant white dress with a veil gently laid across here face. In her hand she held a bundle of red and white roses, beautifully decorated. She smiled and walked down the aisle to sound of "ode to joy" (her favorite song, and Fredericks).

Ludwig whispered into the ear of Frederick with a smile [i]"Yea sure marry a woman, that will solve all your problems"[/i] Fredrick laughed at his brothers comment, but in his head he replied [i]"She will solve all mine! and I hers"[/i] As Sophia was about to climb the steps of the alter Frederick took her hand in his and escorted her to the alter. He smiled at her and she smiled at him, they were truly the perfect couple. The Cardinal began to speak.

Minutes had passed and the happy couple never broke their gaze from one another. Finally the Cardinal spoke the all important words to which Sophia and Frederick were waiting for, and the replies were [i]"I do"[/i]. Without hesitation they both kissed, as a ray of light covered them both. A beautiful moment, for all of Bohemia.

[b]Population Increase?[/b]

There has been reports of increased traffic at border crossings between Germany and Bohemia. While in the air an increase of flights from Germany to Bohemia has occurred. It seems to the Imperial government that many Germans are leaving the Union due to its large population, searching for new opportunities and a new life. Reports confirm that between 50,000 and 80,000 have crossed into Bohemia so far. This is expected to increase 800,000 in the next few months, or weeks.

Although concerning, all Bohemians are welcoming their German brothers with open arms. The Kaiser is preparing to pass a law which allows Germanic Union citizens to become Bohemian citizens quickly, which will allow them to stay in the country and work. New housing estates and apartment blocks are being built to provide housing for the future Bohemian citizens. There are plenty of job opportunities available to the newcomers and lots of land to expand in.

[b]Bohemia welcomes you![/b]

Germanic Union, as a gesture of goodwill, has decided to create a similar law to allow Bohemians to have the right of double-citizenship, in spite of the fact that currently the demographic stream is flowing towards Bohemia and not away from it.

The open arms by folk and government have made Bohemia a preferred destination, especially for those who have family just across the borders.
