OOC: I know that I have been very inactive over the past couple of months, this is due to RL. However, due to my now having boatloads of time on Wednesdays and Thursdays, I will be able to be much more active. :)

President of the Transitional Government of Wargadde, Lila Ahmed, walked onto the stage. She was wearing a yellow skirt and jacket, with white shoes, her black hair tied back in a tight bun. She flanked by her vice president, Abdel Ali. The military had just finished a short parade, with the 1st Infantry Division, 2nd Airborne Division, and 4th Light Infantry Division, as well as the 1st and 2nd Air Wings. Afterwords, several platoons stayed in case anything occurred. Other than that, the police had a handle on the situation. Lila stepped up to the podium. She began to speak:

[i]The nation of Wargadde would like to declare its independence and existence to the world. We are a constitutional republic. My name is Lila Ahmed. Currently I am President of the Transitional Government, however, elections will take place quite soon to decide who will lead the nation for the next four years.[/i]


***Private***

Once off the stage and back into the Government Palace, Lila turned to Abdel.

"Are those voter registration laws ready for me to sign? I need to make sure that only Somalis are able to vote. We don't need the Bantu or Arab minorities voting."

"Understood. What do you plan to do about the other parties though? You need the majority vote and the Socialist Democratic party is currently leading in the polls, however, your party, Labour, is not too far behind."

"I am currently in talks with the Socialist Democratic and the Green parties. I just need to get the votes of their constituents and then I'll give their members prominent positions in my government."

"There is one more problem, however, Lila."

"What is it?"

"The Bantu-Arab Nationalist Party may pose quite a threat, seeing as how they fear persecution. These new voting laws you are trying to pass ensure that they will have little to no sway in elections and might anger them."

"Well, if everything goes according to plan, there won't [i]be[/i] any Bantus or Arabs within the next couple of years. [i]Africa is for Africans[/i]."

In the evening, after everything had calmed down and people had gone back into their homes, Lila met with the founders of the National Institute for Democracy and the Foundation for Economic Prosperity, two think tanks that had recently been established by Howard F. Thompkins and Cynthia Bridgewater. The room the trio met in was large. There were three large, red chairs in front of a roaring fire. To the side of each chair was a small glass of wine. Waiters would be at their beck and call if they needed anything. Lila got there and sat down; Cynthia and Howard were already seated.

"How are you Lila?" Cynthia asked.

"Quite well. How have the plans progressed?"

"Things are going as planned. We just need to contact the nation of Cyrantia and see if we can get some aid from them."

Lila smiled. "Good." She turned to Harry. "Is everything going well on your end?"

"Yes. I contacted my friend in charge of the new station Current TV. He said that he can start a series on the Bantu and Arab minorities, specifically focusing on how the Bantu-Arab Nationalist Party is a threat to the republic, as well as how the Bantu have Communist leanings, which is also a threat to the republic. However, I have a question about those new laws you are going to pass tomorrow."

"What about them?"

"They blatantly discriminate against the Bantus and Arabs. That could create a potential problem. Have you ever thought about doing redistricting, you know, creating districts of voting as to disenfranchise certain peoples? It has worked quite well in history. I think that that would be good as everything would still look legitimate."

"Yes. Those laws have been proposed as well. I still have them. I can replace them and that would be fine with Parliament."

"About that," Cynthia said. "The goal of my think tank and partial goal of Howard's is to have a capitalist system. What are we going to do about the Socialist Democratic and Green parties?"

"Easy," Howard injected. "Just give them [i]some [/i]of what they want immediately. Then say that they can get the rest through legislation. My think tank can fund them."

Cynthia smiled. "Good. Hopefully things will go smoothly."

And just as we were suspecting that Somalia would never return to sovereign status without the guide of Denard, this wonderous news fills our ears. We welcome this Wargadde Government and extend full diplomatic recognition while also extending a hand in friendship to a long time neighbour.

The people of Wargadde thank members of the international community for their recognition of our state. To the Nation of Nod, we too extend our hand in friendship to your nation and suggest a meeting between our two leaders.

- Lila Ahmed (President of the Transitional Government)

[/b]The next day Lila sat in at a table, with Abdel Adi at her side. There were several press members there, taking pictures and video of the historic moment. She looked up at the cameras and began to speak:

In an effort to ensure that elections go smoothly and that the election process is fair and equal, the provisional government has ordered a redistricing policy for the entire nation. Each of the five provinces will be split evenly amongst the parties so that everyone will have a fair chance of being able to get into office. I would also like to announce that the Labour and Socialist-Democrat parties have both agreed to form a coalition government if either wins the presidential elections. Being a member of the Labour party, I would like to say that it is a great honor to have allies in the Socialist-Democrat party and that I look forward to working with my counterparts in the future.



After the meeting, Lila went back to the National Palace and met with Socialist-Democratic president Johnathan Athens.

"How are you Mr. Athens?"

"I am doing well Ms.- rather [i]President[/i] Ahmed. Things are going quite well. I just wanted to have this meeting to make sure that we are in perfect agreement about how the government is going to be run."

"Of course. What would you like to discuss?"

"I just wanted to make sure that the Bantu-Arab Nationalist Party would remain marginalized and that we would at least have a well-put together social safety net with things such as Social Security and whatnot."

"Entirely. That would be completely fine. However, we also need to agree on some things about the military and police. For instance..."


[b]In the town of Luna, on the outskirts of the capital, Burrmont
[/b]

Cynthia Bridgewater sent out a short email to the nation of Cyrantia.


[i]To Whom It May Concern:
[/i]
[i]I am the founder and current president of the Foundation For Economic Prosperity in the nation of Wargadde. We believe in a capitalist system and are willing to work in tandem with the Wargadde government and foreign nations in order to make foreign investment possible. However, in order to do this we need funding. The Foundation needs approximately $10 million to start up operations. Unfortunately, we are unable to get up $7 million due to the current instability of the economy. Thus we are asking for the government of Cyrantia to please provide us with the rest of the needed funds. In exchange, we would do our best to ensure that your nation was given Most Favored Nation trade status and that foreign investment in Wargadde could occur with ease.
[/i]
[i]Sincerely,
[/i]
[i]Cynthia Bridgewater[/i]

Dear Ms. Bridgewater,

We of the Chancellery of Cyrantia are very pleased to open up new relations as well as economic opportunities such as investments and trade. As one of the younger nations of the world, we understand the hardships of beginning such affairs. We would be more than willing to foot the bill of beginning operations. The sum of ten million international bancors will be transferred momentarily into your Foundation's account. Any extra funds left after your operations have begun you may keep; consider it a gift from our nation to yours.

Sincerely,

Sergei Aleksandrov
Grand Chancellor of the State

OOC: Taking advantage of that legal 2 week window to rage against the machine. Kitex is fair game under the new TBM !@#$%baggery Accords, which prohibits me from doing something this disturbing to a new member of the community.

Prepare for rape, murder, torture, assassinations, and so forth.

This is gonna rock.

"Forgot about us did you? Back before you were a pap smear in a lab this land was this land and not yours or mine. It's going to be ours again, but certainly nor yours if we can help it. You don't know us, which is fine. All you need to know is we are here now. We will fight for what is ours or die trying. Your only choice is to negotiate a reasonable power sharing agreement that properly represents all levels of Somalian society."

- Commisioner X of Anonymous

Across Somalia, also sadly labeled as Wargadde by the misguided cartographers of the planet, small groups of armed men and women are put into position on the orders of the mysterious Commissioner X. What they lack in training and equipment they make up for in the blazing hot heat of revolutionary thirst for equality and justice for all.

Or at least their version of it, which is probably a bit extreme to most other folks, but that's the funny thing about most raggedy revolutionaries, they tend not to care about most other folks.

In the headquarters of Hourglass International in Antananarivo, Wargadde was certainly being taken note of. Given the new government's proximity to Arctica and strategic location at the Horn of Africa, Hourglass was taking an interest, especially with the upstart Anonymous extremist group, which was an unknown factor. The company aimed to learn more about this, and perhaps stick its hands in the situation with hopefully beneficial results for itself.

[quote]To: Transitional Government of Wargadde
From: Hourglass International, Inc.

Dear Sir or Madam,

We here at Hourglass Intl. wish to extend our congratulations at the creation of a provisional government in Somalia, and send our well-wishes to all of you in Wargadde.

In the aim of African security, I wish to submit an offer for your consideration. As you no doubt know, Hourglass is a private military company operating out of Arctica, and offers such services as training, VIP guard services, and limited battle and special operations as well as reconnaissance. In the spirit of cooperation, we desire to make these services available to the government of Wargadde if it is in need of them. Our operators, who have all had military experience of some sort, primarily combat, are familiar with a wide range of weaponry and tactics, and have placed themselves at our disposal to share this knowledge with our clients. If Wargadde is in need of such services, they need only look to Hourglass for skilled, professional providers of such.

I hope you will consider my offer.

Sincerely,

Marthinus de Witt
Chief Operating Officer
Hourglass International, Inc.[/quote]

However, Hourglass usually at least explored the option of playing both sides in a brewing conflict, and so the management tasked the secretive Special Market Research department with finding out more about Anonymous. The management planned to contact this group eventually and offer its services, but before it did so, it wanted to know a little more about it so as not to be at a disadvantage.

Dear Mr. de Witt,

While we graciously thank you for your services, our security apparatus is quite well at this time, however, we will keep your number on hand.

Sincerely,

Transitional Government of Wargadde
