As of 5:32 pm today, the Asiatic Unity Pact has transfer administrative jurisdiction of the Singapore territories to the newly established private interest conglomerate, SINGACORP, who will undertake the endeavor of reconstructing and repopulating the former city nation.

Details on the contract given to Singacorp have not been release to the public, but it has been revealed that Singacorp now possesses de facto control over the administration and security of Singapore. The contract dictates that Singacorp be responsible for continual efforts in rebuilding the deserted city's infrastructure and economy, providing security and law, and real estate marketing to attract new residents and businesses. Singacorp must also pay a portion of its revenue to AUP members to compensate for the massive clean up effort undertaken after the unforeseen meltdown of Singapore's nuclear reactor plant.

For legal purposes, executive and judicial power has been granted by the AUP to Singapore's office of Singapore Administrative Board who will act as the city's governing body. The board consist of seven executive administrators headed by the chief administrator Chu Ying, a Chinese businessman who founded Singacorp and first proposed the private venture to rebuild Singapore.

Harbin, Zargathia

Chu Ying felt the eyes of a million people as he stood behind the podium and made his speech to the television camera in front of him. While not his first time on television, he couldn't help but feel nervous as he made his speech.

He should be nervous. Giving a private corporation the control of a former city-nation was bound to raise heads and attract criticism. Issues of ethics, legality, conflict of interest, and misuse of power were all there. Even before the official announcement came out, the leftist enthusiasts of the world were shouting out their contempt and anger at him and his conglomerate. What could he do? Controversy ran hand in hand with business. In this case, it was the business of running a nation. A small diminutive nation, but a nation nevertheless.

"...Singacorp is committed to conducting our great venture with utmost responsibility and ethical integrity. No effort will be spare in making sure that our employees and subsidies follow suit with this policy, any discrepancies or complaints on our operations will be investigated fully and resolve. We will rebuild Singapore through honest means. That is our promise."

As he ended his speech, he couldn't help but felt that he was a real president making an address to his people. But what people was that? For the first few months he guess, it'll be the thousands of contractors and workers who would disembark onto the Singapore Harbor, ready to heed to his commands. But they were there for the money, not through any sense of nationalism or citizenship. Next will come the former citizens of the city, refugees displaced throughout Asia and the world so many years ago, thousands yearning to return to their birthplace of Singapore. But what real sense of loyalty did they owe to Singacorp? None, as far they were concern, Singacorp had stolen their homes.

In the end, noone would say they were there for good reasons except to make a buck. Just another dirty scheme by conspiring corporations to exploit the world for selfish gains. Ha! If only they knew. Singapore as far as real estate went was worthless. A previous nuclear meltdown in the neighborhood doesn't exactly raise property value. Singapore was exponentially small, and it was lacking in natural resources of any kind. Its deep water port was still intact, but since the meltdown disaster other nearby ports had taken up the slack. Selling Singapore would be an extremely tough job. But Chu Ying believed that he was the prodigy who would accomplish it.

"Mister Chu Ying will now be taking questions from foreign media representatives."

"We recognize Singacorp's(?) sovereignty and welcome them to the world stage."
The Shinsei Shikkoku Teikoku welcomes Singapore in it's return to the world stage.

We hope that we will prosper together grandly under the AUP banner.

Singacorp appreciates the support of the international community. We hope to return Singapore to its former glory so that it may serve the needs of the world economy.

Currently, we are looking for investments from foreign governments to better help us fund our noble endeavor. Investors will receive exclusive discounts to fees and prices once our port infrastructure and commercial office space have been restore and reopen.

France notes the apparent assumption of state-like powers in Singapore with great interest. The Foreign Ministry issued a low-keyed statement declaring that while France can do business with Singacorp, Paris will not consider recognising Singacorp as anything more than a private company.

"Here in France, the state control companies," a senior ministry official is quoted anonymously, "Not the other way around like those pesky Asians."

The Ministry for the Economy, Industry and Employment is reportedly approaching Singacorp officials to work on details of possibility allowing French governments to invest as a shareholder.

"Zargathia recognizes Singapore's new leadership, and wishes it peace and prosperity in its future endeavors. Also, in reaction to the French concerns we would like to point out that a Corporatocracy is a valid form of government as well, though we admit this level of openness is as uncommon as it is refreshing."

"In a reply to the French government's statement on the political issue of sovereignty, Singacorp will like to say that our company's control over Singapore is primarily administrative and commercial. Any issue regarding foreign affairs are handle by our AUP sponsors. We understand our company's position on the world stage, and we do not wish to complicate things further."

In light of recent interests from foreign government to invest into the Singapore Venture, Singacorp will be opening an international business consortium at Harbin in two weeks to present likely investors with their agenda.

An official spokesperson from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs emerged to address the horde of reporters camping outside the government building. The rowdy group, who had gathered after Singacorp responses were captured on video due to a spectacular slow news day, quieted down and watched her with anticipation. Clearing her throat, the spokesperson defied them to find a single reference to Singaporean sovereignty that the government had made.

She then quickly escaped back through the lobby and up a secured elevator before the crowd could respond.

OOC: :P
