[/b]"[i]Today President Moshum having recently taken control of the Islands forming the NPR has made it clear that all traces of the former regime will be destroyed and disposed of on the island. This includes all former governing officials, and there families, being deported out of the county to an undisclosed location. The President said the following in regards to his reasoning."
[/i][b]President Moshum
[/b][i]"Molakia once ruled these lands, but under there regime our country went nowhere. We were a mockery in Europe, and very unstable. Apart from some limited military developments the islands economy wasn't properly developed and promptly feel under the collapse of military development. Our country was a 3rd world pariah in the middle of the Mediterranean sea. This will not repeat, under my leadership I will foster this isolated chain of islands into a proper 1st world power. That much I promise you, that much I shall deliver...But first, I must eat, so if you'll excuse me that will be all for today. My press secretary will handle any further questioning, and will release further statements on my behalf."

[b]Jacques Desal - Announcing Appointment To Press Secretary, #1 Development Manifesto, & DNA Database[/b]
"Greetings, I am Jacques Desal and I have been appointed as the Presidential Press Secretary. I will be in charge of issuing any statements on the Presidents behalf as well as taking questions. With that in mind, President Moshum would like me to release the following statements on the development of the nation."

[font="Impact"][size="3"]NPR Construction On Development Manifesto #1[/size][/font]
"Firstly, the progress on the initial development manifesto has gone smoothly. All projects are being completed on schedule, and even more so ahead of our original time-table of completion. Initially we thought the project would be done in just over two weeks. But at our current rate the developments should be done within a few days. Our laborers are working diligently too complete this task and should be a model of working spirit and fervor. Furthermore, our effort too eliminate remaining traces of the Molakian presence on the island have gone well. Various military weapons and designs have been ceased and either scrapped, or will be incorporated into further military designs after extensive remodeling of our current equipment."

"Now, I have one final thing to note...or rather announce for the first time. President Moshum has instructed me to release his first official Presidential mandate for the nation. All current inhabitants will be instructed to give up a sampling of there blood to be stored in a DNA database hidden in a remote location and firmly locked away. In addition, all future residents will be required to give a sampling for the database upon immigration or birth in the country. This DNA database will be used to assist the police in the tracking of criminals, and domestic terrorists. Lastly, this DNA sampling and database will be completely owned and operated by The Government...and may be subject to various other uses."

[b]Jacques Desal - [b]Announcing Completion Of Project Manifesto #1 & Naval Development[/b][/b]

"[i]Construction on Project Manifesto #1 has been completed, all services are running at full capabilities and online. The development of these national assets will contribute to the long-term growth of our young nation, and I am pleased to note that President Moshum will pay all workers on this project a bonus of $5,000 florins for there speedy efforts. Now, I have another announcement to make concerning our naval forces. Currently, our navy is rather small but as we speak engineers are working on developing blue-prints for a new fully armed navy. Progress of course will take time, but it will result in a state of the art naval force capable of projecting it's power world-wide as well as completely secure our territorial waters and beyond. Thus greatly improving our national security and projective power, which will be a major achievement in the New Palma Republic.[/i]"

(OOC - From this post on, assume [b]Jacques Desal[/b] is speaking in first-person. It's a pain in the $@! having to title him when he's not really in conversation, just reading things to the press. So unless stated otherwise, he is speaking.[b] Furthermore, all material designated with * is classified[/b])

[i]"Today, the President has announced a plan simply stated as Project Nebula. Project Nebula is classified, beyond this announcement it's contents will not be made public."[/i]

[list][*]All military installations will be built with protections against EMP weapons, furthermore any other building of importance or government concern will be built with these protections as well. In conjunction, private citizens may have these protections built upon private property providing they can afford such additions.[*]Work will begin upon the modernization of all military forces, including Nuclear, Naval, Land, & Air Forces.[*]Defensive Coastal Batteries will be installed around the entire span of the NPR islands, complete with underground rail-road tunnel networks linking all batteries upon an island (Islands are not linked in this manner). Furthermore, independent ammunition depots, barracks, and lounge areas will be built as well to allow for constant posting at stations. Batteries, contain anti-sea, air, and land installations.[*]Work will begin on the production of a National Air-Defense Network, Hidden Nuclear Missile Silo, National Research Lab, Space-Program, Strategic Defense Initiative, Pentagon, & Weapons Research Facility. These general designations will be changed upon completion of projects.[*]Work will begin on prototypes for satellite designed to feed intelligence to NPR officials. In addition, a Central Intelligence Agency will be established for further intelligence gathering purposes.[*]Work will begin on stabilizing new forms of weaponry for the NPR military forces.[/list]----

I'll be RP'ing the development of the 22 Wonders I'm sitting on among other things...starting off with the military ones for fun.

[i]"Today, a series of satellite launches has begun from the NPR aeronautical center the first of 15 scheduled launches. These satellites will serve multiple purposes, mainly increasing our global network communicating capabilities to increase potential revenue and to simply increase our carrying capacity limits as our citizenry makes use of it in greater numbers by the week. Furthermore, a classified number of military satellites will be launched to serve as intelligence gathering and other military purposes. This is a milestone in NPR space-development, and will pave the way for future projects. Ultimately, the goal of our aeronautical center is to send men into space and establish a base on Mars. Over the next few months, we will be working to that goal."[/i]
