Canabai hints at recognizing Zion as legitimate

[CANABAI CITY, Canabai, Jul 5] During Canabai Department of State's occasional press conference, Sec. of State, William Geharts, responds to a reporter's inquiry in regards to Zion's legitimacy, to which he responds:

"The state before did not recognize Zion due to underlying conflicts in between our best interests and others, however after yesterday and today's conclusion to our resolution, the state is now considering some form of expanded diplomatic relationship."

Today, the Zion crisis has reached to a resolution, by moving most of the buildings and infrastructure to another location far away in the east to avoid another conflict. Zion would be able to finally realign its plaza to its major 'ice road'. The Old Zion is completely destroyed with spectacular and almost cleaned up.

New Morioh station poses issues for rail designers

[Morioh, Jul 5] Rail designers are struggling to find a good way to redirect the rails after the construction of the new station in downtown Morioh.

"Well we built the station in the location we did, thinking the rails would be easy to divert., but once it was finished, we took a look at the map of Morioh and beyond, and realized that the new station is miles away from the old [Cowville] station," said Ugultu, designer of Morioh Central Station.

"What we have done currently," QuestionTuesdayFTW, the person in charge of laying the rails between the old Cowville Station, the new Morioh Central, and the Northeast Railway junction, "is we have ran the Eastbound lines of RT Tudor and RT Outer fully concurrent with each other from the old Cowville station going to the Northeast Railway junction via Morioh Central, now sharing the same track. They also use the same track going Westbound from the Northeast Railway to the new Morioh station, where we plan to split them back up again before heading to the old Cowville."

Crude bridges have been built in the outskirts of Morioh to take the tracks from Cowville to Morioh Central, which Morioh City Planners are expected to replace them with proper Skytrain tracks in the future. The Tudor Line will also no longer have its own platform at the Northeast Railway Station, allowing the newly built RRC Crap Line to have its own platform at the station.

RT Railway Maintainers remind you to expect delays when heading on RT Tudor or Outer lines between Cowville and Northeast Railway.

Zion Crisis comes to a draw, New age of peace and construction for Zion

[ZION, Zion Z1, Jul 6] After diplomatic issues with nearby cities, Zion has decided to improve it's relationships, which were constantly failing, by moving to an unpopulated plain area thus by giving up it's selfishness for the good of its relationships and peace. Today, at the plaza, an historic peace treaty was signed, ending all current political feuds and problems, the peace treaty was signed by the Founding Father of Zion: Neo.

The old Zion was destroyed with commands and TNT, the plaza was destroyed with TNT and fireworks, celebrating the end of all conflicts, after that, an air raid destroyed some of the buildings, while Boatlev lines were destroyed with TNT and the hyperloop vaporized.

This is the start of a new era for Zion, an age of innovation, expansion, and construction

"Zion's moving has caused the nearby cities to accept Zion as a city part of the server, not as a tyrant, that sucks up city space without permission, carelessly, Zion has proved its Star only wants peace, and the need to avoid conflicts that could damage the server we live in, the number of our allies has doubled, and the number of our enemies has been almost zeroed, Zion will probably have a good overall reputation on the server, as a pacifist, not as a tyrant, a star that shines very far, without blinding anyone."

Canabai Parliament approves $15 billion for continuation of Tagor-Morioh Expressway

[CANABAI CITY, Canabai, Jul 6] The parliament passes a spending bill for the expressway connecting Tagor and Morioh after relentless debates on whether or not the government should invest in infrastructure internationally.

The governing party, the National Coalition Party, who is the primary proponents of the resolution, stated that with such investments would greatly boost Morioh and Tagor's economic prosperity, and thus benefiting Canabai via free trade. Reporters have asked the party's representative what they meant by "via free trade" and so far, none of the MPs gave an answer.

The main opponents, Social Democrats and the Green Party, are strongly against the bill, suggesting that the money could be spent on providing either Levanski, Kovansberg, or Gaxington for housing. "If they insist on transportation," one Soc Dem MP said, "then we should build a new metro for Levanski or a new train line connecting Canabai City to Levanski." The Green Party suggested either a train line, or using the newest technology of Menschbahn or Hyperloop to "minimize environment destruction."

The polls released by Canabai Times suggested that the majority of the population in Canabai are against the resolution, and that they preferred to see newer investments in the country. "We're having so many things to worry about internally," one citizen reported. "The Opera House Restoration, Gaxington and its tennis center that we need, Levanski's Science Laboratory? Those are the things we should focus on, instead of building some roads half the world away that no one is going to use."

The Tagor-Morioh Expressway is reportedly 25% finished, and that it is expected to be finished within the next two weeks in the best case scenario. This expressway is Canabai's largest infrastructure project, after the construction of the Canabai Loop that connects Newport, Levanski, and south of Canabai City.

[DORKLICH, Jul 6] The Mayor of Dorklich, KrebsLovesFiesh, released a declaration, announcing the introduction of survival-friendly structures to the city's building code, such as ladders and stairs.

The mayor during a press conference has stated that doing this would provide access to all parts of the city to 'players that get thottified with [survival mode].' The mayor does not expect the new regulation to beautify the city and that it 'may as well make the city look a bit uglier.' When asked if this is a statement for competition with other cities, KrebsLovesFiesh said it is not.

During the press conference, Sanostonburg's Mayor Office released a short official statement, saying "[Sanostonburg] has same regulations; every structure is accessible with gamemode 0, except WIP ones."

Ottoburg under quarantine due to Server Crash Disease epidemic

[Unterganger City, Jul 6] The city of Ottoburg in the server's Northeast has been put under quarantine due to an ongoing Server Crash Disease epidemic. The epidemic was first discovered by Ugultu shortly after he arrived there for business. Upon arriving, he was immediately plagued with computer crashes, server fires, and eternal rage, among other symptoms of Server Crash Disease. ====

"As far as we know, Ugultu is still stuck in Ottoburg, and we're worried that attempts to extradite him back will result in more staff being exposed and ultimately succumbing to the disease," said Einstein, Ugultu's close friend. "Thankfully, Server Crash Disease is non-fatal when contracted, allowing Ugultu to inform us about the epidemic. but curing the disease is easier said than done."

"Server Crash Disease doesn't spread through the air," Chief Medical Officer NerdieSanders commented. "To cure it, people must be taken out of the affected area, which is only doable with a hazmat team. We don't know how Server Crash Disease arises in given areas, but we are continuing research to ultimately eradicate this disease."

All travel from Ottoburg is restricted to all travelers until further notice. The hazmat team has been deployed and is expected to arrive by Saturday.

Gaxington now known as Altholz

[CANABAI CITY, Canabai, Jul 6] A recent discovery within the town of Gaxington has prompt the city council to change its name to Altholz. The discovery was found by Ugultu within the town's train station, as the original name of the town was engraved on the wall of the station. He then promptly brought the matter to the city council and after a brief process, the city council unanimously voted to change its name to Altholz.

"In this town, we are supposed to preserve our deep root origins," the mayor said, during the announcement. "By changing to our original name that our ancestors had used long before, we are achieving that faithful purpose." Regarding to the nearby FLaMInGO Lab, the mayor said that they would still retain the Gaxington name.

The name Gaxington came about when Canabai travelers came through this town and named the town Gaxington after looking up the stars and without noticing the name in the old train station.

Controversy arises from new claim of the entire server

[Viktoria, Jul 7] A new land claim covering the entire server has sparked controversy from all parts of the server. KrebsLovesFiesh announced his new land claim, covering the entirety of the server today.

"Today is a great day, as Dorklich will begin to annex other towns throughout the server until the entire place is the City, and eventually, Kingdom of Dorklich. All other towns will cease to exist, and bow down to me, the King of the Kingdom of Dorklich!," said KrebsLovesFiesh during today's press conference, where he made the announcement.

News outlets and social media were flooded with concerned citizens throughout the server following the conference. Many leaders also disapproved of the move, calling it a frivolous act of hostility.

"KrebsLovesFiesh is wasting his time. He does not understand that I have already laid claim to the entire server. I have absolute veto power across the entire server to shut down builds that I feel do not fit in the server. I am the original claimant to the entire server. It is to my great chagrin that most cities in the UMS exist today," Viktoria leader Tudor told The National Records.

Canabai Leader NerdieSanders, Zion Leader Neo, and Port Random Leader RDPIsOnCrack also denounced the move Saturday.

Altholz Tennis Center under construction

[ALTHOLZ, Canabai, Jul 7] After the removal of the old Gaxington Tennis Club for the expansion of the town, the mayor promised to rebuild a tennis center to attract more tourism to the town with tournaments comparable to the Wilhelm Kemp Open in Sanostonburg.

And now, he's fulfilling that promise.

On the Highway 1 from Levanski to Canabai City, we can already see the Centre Court popping up from the ground with its retractable roof, constructed by the same company that built Court Rafa Nadal in Wilhelm Kemp Tennis Center. More side courts are soon to be built, but we are unable to determine whether or not there will be a secondary court, similar to Court No. 9 in the Wilhelm Kemp.

Altholz Tennis Center under construction

The Centre Court with areas north of Highway 1 to be filled with tennis facility. Altholz can be seen in the background.

Some town residents are welcoming this return of the tennis spirit of the town. "It's nice to see some sport events in here," one said. "We have great lands that large corporations can invest in, instead of Canabai City, which is having rising costs and what not." Another resident said, "We all should have some sort of sport culture in all towns and cities. The tennis center should do that just fine."

Others are not so sure, due to the fact that the old Gaxington Tennis Club halted the town's expansion. "Not only the club is only accessible to Canabai's highest elites, but we weren't able to build our town," the local librarian complained. "It's unacceptable, and some of us are pretty sure that this is going to happen again, especially how the new tennis center is taking so much more land from us this time." Later, he also added with a grunt, "This new mayor better bring us lots of tourists so we have the funds to build our town to become a city."

Land claim in jeopardy!

[Temporary Embassy of San Escobar, Hotel Tarrantia, Jul 8th]

The problem of western lands' claim is still going on. After rejection of first claim, another corrected claim was submitted by ParrotAntics, Deputy Mayor of Tarrantia and delegate of San Escobar's Ambassador.

Unfortunately, despite meeting requirements of bringing previous claims of QT under consideration, operators of the server find the planned claim enormous and delay the confirmation of it. PA proposed operators a right to decrease the size of the claim to an extent they wish to accept, but so far none of operators commented that move or even used this right.

President of San Escobar, Leoncio Almeida, claims that the prolonging conflict between PA and mods can drive San Escobar into destruction, as they are still endangered by armed forces of San Cristobal y Nieves. Col. Jose Arcadio Morales, San Escobar Defense Minister, claims that their forces must protect the citizens, and begs UMS operators for faster closure of this hiatus.

From Tarrantia, Marius Max Kolonko, I say how it is.

The National Records West Headquarter established in old Canabai Times Building

[Canabai City, CANABAI, Jul 8] The newspaper now has a headquarters located in Canabai City downtown after acquiring Canabai's national newspaper. The mayor of Canabai, Jude York, welcomed this change to the news outlet industry in Canabai and the surrounding area, saying, "The new headquarter will bring in greater content to the people of Canabai, Levanski, Athyras, and so forth. Not only the people will be more informed, but the industry will also prosper as well." The Prime Minister's Office also congratulated the newspaper actions within the city.

The headquarter used to be housed in a small underground bunker hidden within Canabai, and continuously publishing papers to the city's residents. The paper greatly expanded its contents and readership when it reported international news and afterwards, got big enough to acquire Canabai Times.

At the opening of the headquarter, the West Editor of NR, Cohen Stephens, revealed the newspaper's plans for the future. "We are looking to expand to the Greater East area, and we have candidate cities in mind. The final city will have a similar headquarter like this one [in Canabai City], and there will be another East Editor." He also added that the reason for this is to make logistics simpler, instead of one large headquarter that is out of reach to most new, growing cities.

"I believe that this will greatly increase our readership throughout the server, and through that, would further inform the people here and make informed decisions," he said.

Four new additions to Canabai Museum of Arts valued at $12 million total

[Canabai City, CANABAI, Jul 8] The Canabai Museum of Arts purchased four new paintings at $12 million, the museum's director announced in a press conference.

"We are extremely very happy to announce that we are filling up the first level of the museum with more paintings," the director said with great enthusiasm.

The paintings in question are: Botero's Dog, Zaha Hadid's KMR Art and Media Centre, Augusto Ferrer-Dalmau's Carga del Escuadron Real de Carlos VII, and Mark Bryant's Village Church with Flying Saucer. The latter painting seemed to excite the audience that attended the press conference.

One museum-goer agreed with the director, that the museum has 'great paintings with all kinds of styles' for people to embrace, including ones that are very abstract. Written by: NerdieSanders

RT Service Disruptions end as the Westbound lines from Morioh Central open for passengers

[Morioh, Jul 8] RT Rail Designers unveiled the new westbound lines going from Morioh Central to the old Cowville station today, ending the service disruptions RT faced while rerouting the Outer and Tudor lines to the new Morioh Central station.

"We've done some test runs, and based on the current frequency of the trains, as this section of the lines aren't traveled on very often," QuestionTuesdayFTW said at the opening ceremony today, "we are very pleased with the execution of the rerouting of the tracks for the time being."

RT travelers heading Eastbound from Cowville will follow their respective lines, whether Tudor or Outer, before the tracks merge and the two lines continue together towards Morioh Central and ultimately the terminus of the Tudor line at the Northeast Railway. From the Northeast Railway, the lines continue concurrent with each other, and passengers will be expected to get off at Morioh Central to continue on their journey, regardless of what line they are travelling on. RT Rail Designers are working on a long term plan to separate the tracks so that trains heading into Morioh Central and trains heading out of Morioh Central do not share the same tracks.

Travelers are still advised to expect longer travel times, as signs at all stations get updated, Morioh City Planners upgrade the Skytrain tracks carrying the trains to Morioh Central, and the NE Railway Station is renovated to remove the separate Tudor line platform (Due to the new concurrency), allowing RRC Crap Line to be moved into that platform instead. Travelers are also advised that the new station adds about an extra 5 minutes to your commute when travelling through Eastbound, and 7 minutes Westbound.

"For over a year, I've been dealing with builder's block, and my land claim stood empty. Soon, however, the City of Solaris will rise, and become the greatest thing the far West of the server has seen!," said QuestionTuesdayFTW, at a press conference at Old Newport, which to this day still stands as his biggest project.

The press conference was later interrupted while QuestionTuesdayFTW was answering questions from reporters, by KrebsLovesFiesh, as he stormed onto stage, stole the mic from his hands, and accused him of sabotaging Dorklich's teleporter booth at the teleporter hub.

"You set up a system that when people would teleport to Dorklich, they would land on a pressure plate that would trigger a mechanism that would immediately kill them. You are a disgrace of a leader and I will veto every single proposal that you put out!," KrebsLovesFiesh yelled at to the crowd and to QuestionTuesdayFTW, before security managed to apprehend him and remove him from the stage.

With order brought back to the press conference, QuestionTuesdayFTW immediately denied the accusations made by Dorklich, instead deferring blame to de facto Morioh Leader AlphaSkyRaider.

Solaris proposes a peace agreement with Dorklich

[Solaris, Jul 13] Solaris Leader QuestionTuesdayFTW released a report today outlining the details of Solaris' Foreign Policy with other towns and countries throughout the server. The most interesting thing to come out of the report is a supposed peace agreement, where "if Dorklich agrees to the agreement, they will recognize Solaris as a city, half all attempts to block Solaris' entrance into the UMS Council, stop all vetoes of their proposals for the sake of vetoes, and issue a formal apology for interrupting Solaris' first press conference."

It is rumoured that in return for accepting the terms of this agreement, Solaris will be more welcoming to Dorklich, dropping rumoured travel bans on Dorklich residents, due to QuestionTuesdayFTW implying that he was somewhat against Dorklich's infrastructure, government structure, and the city itself, as well as its leader, KrebsLovesFiesh. Solaris is also expected to accept full responsibility for the Teleport Booth Incident, also issuing a formal apology for the Incident, and vow to never prank Dorklich or KrebsLovesFiesh in the future, if the peace agreement is ratified. Finally, Solaris is expected to make some sort of reparation payment to Dorklich, building or other, if the agreement is accepted by both parties.

Other details included in today's report include a construction of a Government District in Solaris, which will house embassies, consulates, Solaris City Hall, and numerous hotels, as well as a mansion, for government leaders to stay in. Planned embassies at the moment include the Canabai Embassy, housed in the Temple of GAT SA ROBAT OH REBAT (Alternate Name: Temple of NERDIE FUCKING SANDERS), and the Embassy for the Republic of E, which is unnamed at the moment.

[Solaris, Jul 13] Solaris Leader QuestionTuesdayFTW issued from his office a statement which acknowledged and took responsibility for the Teleport Booth Incident, where upon teleporting to Dorklich, one would land on a pressure plate which would kill them, effectively making Dorklich inaccessible without walking.

The statement "[admits] full responsibility for the Teleport Booth Incident, and [QuestionTuesdayFTW is] deeply sorry for any grief that this may have caused [KrebsLovesFiesh], as well as anyone attempting to access Dorklich while the event was occurring." It also touches base on the tensions between Dorklich and Solaris as a result of the incident, and "[QuestionTuesdayFTW], on behalf of Solaris, will vow to no longer prank Dorklich or KrebsLovesFiesh in the future. ... Solaris is pleased that Dorklich has accepted our Peace Agreement, and we would like to offer Dorklich and KrebsLovesFiesh a reparation payment, be it the form of a building or other."

QuestionTuesdayFTW declined to comment following the statement.

Zion claims rails are part of land claims, causing massive issues server wide

[Zion, Jul 13] In an effort to stop the construction of Hasbro, despite being over a kilometer away, Zion announced that rails are part of land claims, including his MB system. Anything within 30 blocks of a rail line is now classified as territory of the rail company, which in turn is territory of the country or city in which the rail company is headquartered.

While this allowed Zion to halt construction of Hasbro, this blindsided announcement has caused massive headaches for residents and commuters of the server alike, especially to cities like Morioh and Arthyras, which do not have their own rail systems. Within an hour of the announcement, Unterganger City announced that all stations under the RTN (Except RT Central and all stations within Unterganger City) are to be demolished, citing that "most stations in the RTN are so unmaintained that it brings shame to our rail system.

Canabai Transit and Port Random Transit objected to the move by the RTN, saying that it affected a number of stations in their systems, while also calling it an act of hostility. Commuters were also getting confused as the RTN, the largest transit system in the server, began putting signs everywhere that they were in Unterganger City. Despite signs telling people what station they were at, people were convinced that they were wrong, as every station stated that they were in Unterganger City.

Residents were also confused, as a quarter of the population of the server found themselves living in a different city then they were yesterday. Many riots were staged at city halls throughout the server.

The UMS Council has been called to order in an emergency meeting to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

Port Random signals invasion towards Newport and Canabai City using railway claim loophole

[Newport, Jul 14] Rails acting as claims for towns are causing greater headaches for residents in the West of the server, as Port Random signals an invasion towards Newport and Canabai City.

"With Newport [Central] and Canabai Palace being served by the PRT, citizens of Canabai City and Newport are worried that Port Random will use the new railway claim loophole to invade and aggressively expand their territory," Canabai Leader NerdieSanders told The National Records. "People are starting to barge into Fort Newport to 'militarize and defend themselves from transport freaks,' as one of my advisers told me a resident at Fort Newport told him. Riots are happening in Newport, which endangers the Monorail, and the biggest protests in Canabai's history are happening as we speak, around the National Square, Palace Mall, and in front of Canabai Palace station. It's very dangerous for citizens."

The Prime Minister's office is working through the weekend to try to calm down residents. The government has also filed a dispute to the UMS Court, hoping that they can get the loophole closed soon. Port Random has implied that the CMOA will be raided soon if the issue is not resolved in the near future. Port Random militants have already mobilized near DMT Park, only escalating residents' concerns. The Port Random Army is also marching on Expressway 100 towards Canabai Port, in an attempt to block further trade.

UMS Council puts an end to the Railway Claim Loophole madness

[Unterganger City, Jul 14] The Court of UMS put an end to the madness that arose from the Railway Claim Loophole. Judge QuestionTuesdayFTW ruled that rail lines and other transport systems were not to be used as extensions to land claims outside of a town's borders, even going as far as to modify the Server Constitution (Rules) to explain as such.

Rail Dispute Agreement

The press released version of the contract that was ratified earlier today.

"Zion originally claimed that their Zion MB was a part of the original Zion claim, meaning that they were allowed to use it to halt construction of Hasbro. Unfortunately, Leader Neo did not see the repercussions of his actions, and as a result, a majority of the server was put under threat due to both Unterganger City and Port Random claiming that the RTN and the PRT were part of their land claims." Judge QuestionTuesdayFTW said in the courtroom. "Because of his haste actions to halt construction of Hasbro, Neo will need to make a repatriation payment to the main leader of Hasbro, AlphaSkyRaider, in the form of a University (to his liking) in Morioh. In return, Hasbro will halt all construction and prepare a new land claim away from Zion."

The Court of UMS also ruled that the Fegeline and the Zion MB, both in the server's Northeast, were the only exceptions to the rule due to mutual settlement. The RTN retracted their ultimatum for all stations outside of Unterganger City proper to be destroyed, and the Port Random Military is in the process of withdrawing from Newport and Canabai City.

During deliberation, Judge NerdieSanders. who originally took on the case, became very frustrated with the two parties to the point where he stormed out of the courtroom, leaving Judge QuestionTuesdayFTW to take over the trial.

Dispute over Zion MB Continues, Threatening War

[Dorklich, Jul 15] After a peace treaty between Hasbro and Zion was made, it turns out that Zion has now claimed any area that is even in view distance of the MB line. The representatives of Hasbro, as well as the mayor of Dorklich have not agreed to this in the contract and chances are the contract was modified either intentionally or by mistake.

The mayor of Hasbro claimed the contract stated that Zion's MB line would only have a claim against Hasbro and STB's Fegeline boatlev would only have a claim against Zion. However, a likely mistake in communication caused the server OPs to believe that the MB and Fegeline has claims over the entire area in general.

This misunderstanding has caused a new player to have significant difficulties claiming a land that is at a moderate distance from Zion's MB line. It was found that if these lines do end up getting claims over everyone, that half of the build area to the east would not be accessable without permission of the ones who have built these lines.

Following this incident, the mayor of Dorklich, also known as the CEO of the Redstone Railway Company, threatened to claim all areas near any rail he has built as protest to this change in the rules of the contract. He also says that he will blow up anything that he does not like near his rails, including anything Zion related.

This latest incident has escalated the tensions between Zion and the other settlements. The DEFCON scale drops from 3 to 2, which means that a war could break out at any moment. The mayors of Canabai and Solaris are meeting up for a discussion on what to do about their neighbors in the east and how they can bring back peace on the server.

UMS Court of Appeal temporally impeaches multiple leaders in unprecedented end to Railway Claim Drama

[Unterganger City, Jul 15] The UMS Court of Appeal ruled 4-3 to temporally impeach (ban) Zion Leader Neo, Morioh Leader AlphaSkyRaider, and Dorklich Leader KrebsLovesFiesh, for their roles in the ongoing Railway Claim Drama. It also saw Judge (OP) Ugultu temporally removed from his judge position.

"Well, needless to say, that after QuestionTuesdayFTW convinced me to come back into the courtroom after the parties frustrated me during the initial trial surrounding the Railway Claim Drama, a new trial had to be started almost right away as there were accusations of the terms of the original agreement being breached," Judge NerdieSanders wrote in a coed.

"It's really frustrating that we have to do this, since this is a ruling we normally would not issue. However, the amount of drama we've had to deal with the past few days, especially as RDPIsOnCrack has been away for the past few days, is ridiculous. All of us here in the court are sick and tired of resolving disputes between all four parties only for them to come back a few hours later with another dispute," Judge QuestionTuesdayFTW in a separate coed wrote.

"I miss the old days," Judge Tudor commented in a third coed, "Less people, not as much activity, but as least there wasn't a drama every 3 hours. This drama is probably the worse in the UMS' history, worse than when Molster tried to blow up the entire server."

All four leaders will be expected to make repatriation payments to the server at a later date. The week long impeachment will give the leaders some time to think about their actions as well as allow the UMS council to deliberate and come up with a final solution in peace.

RRC Crap Line ordered removed by UMS Council

[Morioh, Jul 15] Shortly after the announcement made by the UMS Court of Appeal which impeached several leaders. the UMS Council ordered Dorklich's RRC Crap Line, stretching from Eston Post to Arthryas, removed for "being a massive eyesore due to all the redstone blocks being used."

"Well, to be quite frank, when NerdieSanders and I ordered this, we disagreed on whether the RRC Crap Line should be removed or redone. Ultimately, we decided that the City of Solaris and the Republic of Canabai were going to impose further sanctions on Dorklich and leader KrebsLovesFiesh for the dramas that played out over the past few days." QuestionTuesdayFTW told The National Records after the announcement.

The sanctions put forward by the Republic of Canabai and the City of Solaris prevent Dorklich and the RRC from rebuilding any portion of the Crap Line "unless KrebsLovesFiesh is able to surprise both Solaris and Canabai with a new design that is not such an eyesore." Even when this is achieved, the Crap Line will only be allowed to be re-established 1 station at a time, with pre-approval from the UMS Council on where these stations may be.

Today's ruling from the UMS Council is the first of several expected to be made this week in the wake of the Railway Claim Drama.

Rainbow Bloc Party created after stadium renovation

[CANABAI CITY, Canabai, Jul 16] A new LGBT-oriented party has created after the removal of the "rainbow roof" in Canabai Stadium for a newer roof.

"Today is a great day for all of us gays here, standing in the Rainbow Square. And we all can agree on one thing," said the founder, Brandon Gaylord, whose last name was intentionally changed in protest of a name restriction rule. "Make Canabai Gay Again!" Gaylord was responded to with a loud cheering echo that can be heard throughout the city's downtown.

The party represents the LGBT minority in Canabai, who seeks for more LGBT recognition and rights in the country. When asked how they're going to achieve the new level of recognition, Gaylord responded, "We've been thinking of putting gay banners, creating a pride event and fun marches throughout the City and Levanski, and even making purchasing the rainbow flag free for everyone. The most ambitious idea we're having is creating a town called Gay, where everything is pretty much g a y." We're not sure how Gaylord created the aesthetics in his interview but it is rumored that it is a skill only gay people can have. Of course, with a new party comes with newer opposition. "This is absurd," said Andrew Anderson, party leader of Canabai Front. "They are all going to make the rest of us gay. Today, they might put us in rainbow filled rooms, tomorrow they might even strip our pants and penetrate us with their dildos!" Their party supporters seemed to support all of his homophobic statements.

Sam Jarovy, party leader of Social Democratic Party, supported the move, but with some doubt in his mind. "I love the gays and the lesbians, they're all nice to hang out with. However, of course we'll have some of them leaving our party and joining the Rainbow Bloc. Voters will still have the option to vote for both the Rainbow Bloc and the SocDems, so I'm fine with that. Maybe we'll see a more diverse representation in the Parliament."

When asked if he would add gay Ministers in his government if his party wins the most likely hung election, Jarovy replied, "We here at SocDem are always looking for experience, but if we must have a coalition with the Rainbow Bloc, we can always support and train them."

New-Old Railway Opened!!!

[RRC Central HQ, Eston Post, Jul 16th] After decision of UMS Council from July 15th to demolish the first Redstone Railway Company railway - Crap Line, and shortening it to Flaghenge in Morioh and changing redstone blocks to stone, it was thought the railway days are counted. Yet the hope shined again. And it's name is ParrotAntics. Newly estabilished CEO of RRC intervened and stopped demolition of Crap Line, promising it's general reconstruction. And he succeeded within one day.

"We are gathering here to present the new era. A new era of RRC railways! An era of aesthetics and efficiency!" - said PA on the opening ceremony of Orchid Express - a newly built railway that goes in trace of old Crap Line.

An Orchid Express line was thought as reconstruction of the Crap Line to meet the standards of aesthetics, but it turned out to become much more efficient and passenger friendly as well. The new line leads from Eastern Observatory Station in Eston Post (the important hub in RRC grid) to newly constructed Morioh Central station, stopping only at Turdsburg interchange with Rail Transit Outer Line. The stops at Flaghenge and Morioh were disassembled, and the new line runs on the stone viaduct supported by "fork pillars". The major upgrade is the layout - entire line is 2-track, unlike monotrack predecessor.

"The construction of the line would be impossible without help of Mr Ugultu from SRA, who designed the Turdsburg station platform for Orchid Express. I'm glad RRC can have such reliable partner, though we should be considered as rivals on the market. And I want to thank SRA and their leadership!" - said ParrotAntics. He also expressed his concern that the refurbished railway will meet the expectations of Canabai and Solaris leaders, who ordered demolition of Crap Line in it's original shape.

RT finishes stage one of line upgrades heading into Morioh Central

[Morioh, Jul 16] RT Rail Designers, in partnership with Morioh City Officials, have completed Stage 1 of the rail upgrades originally proposed by RT Designers shortly after the new branch of rails were opened to Morioh Central.

"I'm very happy that we were finally able to get this project rolling. Even though we are the original Railway Company in the UMS, the ordering of RRC Crap Line demolished scared us simply because we did not have the time to make the rails heading to Morioh Central look nice during construction." Lead designer QuestionTuesdayFTW said following the announcement.

Stage one upgraded the RT Tudor and Outer lines in Urban Morioh such that they are now supported and lay on new blocks of track, all on quartz blocks. Stage two will deal with the portion of the lines within rural Morioh, and stage three will deal with the parts of these lines outside of Morioh. Stage three, however, is not expected to be started anytime soon, as efforts will be made to better streamline the rails in this area.

Travelers are asked to expect delays when traveling in and out of Morioh Central.

Parliament of Morioh starts renovation and expansion

[Morioh, Jul 18] The Parliament of Morioh approves a $121 million bill on the new renovation and expansion of the legislative branch, while also cutting the number of house members and senators by two thirds. The new parliament will have new office rooms in the building, but the two chambers took the sacrifice to be smaller to make room. It will also have a new extension to house all members of the parliament, built underneath the plaza.

Parliment of Morioh

The Parliament of Morioh under renovation and expansion.

"It is a wonderful thing to be happening in Morioh," said the Speaker of the House, Ryan Ryan. "Us members of the parliament have always been working far from the parliament, and many of us don't even have an actual office, so this new addition to the parliament is amazing. The constituents will also be able to visit us in a public place behind closed doors."

Many others have criticized the move, saying how downsizing the number of voting members gives the people less power. "What we need is a direct democracy with as many people as possible!" said a citizen protesting at the construction site. "To hell with this laughable extension, why not have an assembly at the Opera House? That could house all of the population easily!"

During the construction period of the parliament, which is estimated to be around 2 to 4 days, the House of Representatives will convene at the Opera House, while the Senate will go to the newly built Richmond Young Hall at University of Morioh's Department of the Arts. The two chambers are available for the public to be gathered in the boxes.

Morioh finally finishes

[July 23rd, 2018] After over a year of construction, the city of Morioh has finally finished, after the completion of the university earlier today. There will be an opening ceremony later today filled with military tanks brought by the president of Canabai, NerdieSanders. Upon finishing Morioh, the 2nd mayor of the city, AlphaSkyRaider, gives ownership back to the 1st mayor, Del, despite the latter being pretty silent the past few months. Note that Morioh will continue to be improved as the future rolls on, such as completion of the subway and new government buildings, but it should be considered largely finished. The former mayor of Morioh, AlphaSkyRaider, now seeks to help other people on the server with their builds as well as making his own city called Fegelein.

New Restaurants open in Canabai City Centre serving "constantly annoyed food"

[Canabai City, Canabai, Jul 24] Residents lined up outside 3 new restaurants that opened Tuesday in Canabai City. Each restaurant served their own version of "constantly annoyed food" on their menu.

"The constantly annoyed banh mi was fairly interesting, the meat had a very gamey taste, but it was very well balanced with the daikon and carrots in the sandwich," resident Sam Jarovy told The Records regarding the Constantly Annoyed Banh Mi Shop. "I would definitely have it again."

"The constantly annoyed phở had everything I'm looking for in a good phở," Ian Truong told The Records. "It has a good base, the meat is plentiful, the bean sprouts and herbs were very fresh, and overall Constantly Annoyed Phở probably has the best bowl of phở I've had."

Tony Whatever talked to The Records after eating at Constantly Annoyed Kebab. "It was a very good kebab, and those that keep saying to remove kebab should come here and have one. The bread, meat, sauce, and other sides make the whole thing a very interesting combo. This beats any sandwich at McDonald's."

Lines stretched across several blocks, causing several traffic disruptions throughout the day.

Canabai govt. creates Canabai National Railways and took control of Southwest Railways

[CANABAI CITY, Canabai, Jul 25] The Department of Transportation created the Canabai National Railways with the intent of taking control of most railways within the country and create even more connections in between cities and towns.

"Taking control of the Southwest Railways enables us to maintain the rail lines that are poorly maintained while still having a lot of riders. Seeing as most of these riders are citizens of our nation, there is a sense of ownership that we're already have. Taking control is the crucial and necessary step," said the Minister of Transportation, Keiran Henderson.

"We are also seeking to further connect Canabai City and Levanski. With climate change looming at the horizon, and seeing how going from Canabai City to Levanski requires a personal car, we feel like there is a need for us to create commuter lines in between the towns and cities in Canabai," the minister added.

Man changes gender on government-issued IDs to get cheaper car insurance

[LITTLE SAIGON, Canabai, Jul 29] He wanted a brand new car — a Chevrolet Cruze with all the trimmings.

As a man in his early 20s, he knew his insurance costs would be high.

So he became a woman, though only on paper.

"I have taken advantage of a loophole," said the man — we're calling him John — who spoke on the condition that his identity be kept confidential because of the potential repercussions.

John, who lives in Little Saigon, says he identifies as a male. But his government-issued identification tells a different story.

It started when an insurance company gave John a quote — roughly $22,000 a year, if he bought the Chevy. He had a collision and a ticket or two on his record, which helped boost the premium.

Then, he had an idea. He asked the insurer what his costs would be if he were a woman. He was told his annual bill would sink to roughly $500 — a $21,500 difference.

"I was pretty angry about that. And I didn't feel like getting screwed over any more," he said.

"So I asked them to change my gender on my auto policy, and she's like, we can't do that." According to the Insurance Bureau of Canabai, men under 25 are generally at higher risk of collision than women of the same age, which means their premiums are often higher.

John, who was 23 at the time, says he learned he first had to change his gender on his birth certificate and driver's license before he could have it reflected on his insurance policy, to get the cheaper rate.

After doing some research, he realized he needed a doctor's note to show the government he identifies as a woman, even though he doesn't.

"It was pretty simple," he said. "I just basically asked for it and told them that I identify as a woman, or I'd like to identify as a woman, and he wrote me the letter I wanted."

In June, the Canabai government scrapped the doctor's note requirement for adults after lobbyists from Rainbow Bloc forced them, allowing them to declare their marker as M, F or X, for those who don't fit into a strictly male or female binary.

John shipped the note and other paperwork off to the provincial government. And, a few weeks later, he received a new birth certificate in the mail indicating he was a woman.

"I was quite shocked, but I was also relieved," he said. "I felt like I beat the system. I felt like I won."

With the new birth certificate in hand, he changed his driver's licence and insurance policy.

"I'm a man, 100 per cent. Legally, I'm a woman," he said.

"I did it for cheaper car insurance."

David says he's aware the methods he used to become a woman on paper are designed for Albertans who need to correct the gender marker on their identification to reflect who they really are. But he says his target was the insurance industry, not the gender diverse community.

"I didn't do it to point out how easy it is to change genders," he said. "I didn't do it to criticize or ridicule transgender or LGBT rights."

Dorklich to relieve visa application requirements for Canabai

[Dorklich Mayor's Press Gallery, July 30th, 2018] After several days of consideration, the Mayor of Dorklich, KrebsLovesFiesh, has changed the requirements for visa application for all citizens of Canabai.

Although any citizens of Canabai abusing this change will be prosecuted under Canabai law.

Currently the mayor is working on negotiating with the president of Canabai to let Dorklich enter it's country more easily.

Dorklich tourist shot in head near Altholz

[Altholz, Aug 4] A man has been arrested and his vehicle was seized by Canabai National Police after a Dorklich tourist was shot in the head while driving his family to Terra Aquileia National Park Saturday.

"We had a 59 year old individual who was travelling in a Toyota Sienna with his wife and kids inside, when another car passed them on Highway 12, lowering their passenger side window in the process, before a firearm was produced and discharged," Sgt. Brandon Duppstepp told the National Records.

The driver lost control of the vehicle, running numerous cars off the road before crashing into a tree. No injuries, apart from the driver, were reported. The driver was airlifted to Levanski General Hospital where a successful surgery was performed. The driver is expected to recover from his injuries, while his family are quite shocked and traumatized by the incident.

Originally being investigated as an incident of road rage, officers later confirmed it to be a case of mistaken identity, as "none of the occupants of the Sienna were the intended targets of the shooting." No charges have been laid.

Following the shooting, Dorklich Foreign Affairs upgraded the travel risk for Canabai to Extreme, saying "that Dorklich residents are being unfairly treated while in Canabai, as they get targeted during shootings while in Canabai. It is rumoured that in the wake of this isolated incident, Dorklich attempted to close the embassy in Canabai again.

RAIL CRISIS!!! Far West Express Line is blocked!!!

[Strasburger & Eston Post, Aug 4th] A train Ex 58741 from Dorklich Central to Los Vipleros with over 150 passengers dissapeared. According to testimony of Alexander Maus, a traffic officer from Heeree, the train disappeared after passing 500 blocks after leaving the station. No contact with Ottoburg station was even received, as communication attempts via radio or telephone ended in failure. Traffic officer from Strasburger, Mike Testack, made 7 failed attempts to contact the Ottoburg and missing train crew.

Director of RRC Central, KrebsLovesFiesh, and CEO of RRC, ParrotAntics, decided to estabilish a crisis board and they contacted SRA leadership to solve the problem of "missing station". They also plan an intervention at operators' board to solve the problem, possibly rerouting the line and making a new station to stay away from faulty chunk area, which size is barely measurable.

Lost FWE train station found and the line is refurbished!!!

[Sanostonburg, Aug 5th] After long hours of calling and searching, traffic officer received a message: "Here's Ottoburg! We're finally back with communication!!!" Cheers in RRC and SRA were meant to be neverending. The station itself was temporarily removed from it's location in order to save it from chunk error.

Also, the Ex 58741 train was also found, as it stopped at the station right after loss of communication. All passengers are not injured and they received appropriate refunds.

During search, the FWE line needed to be rerouted, as climbing passage was replaced with tunnel from the eastern side of Ottoburg station. As RRC East Director, KrebsLovesFiesh, said: "This will serve better with shorter time periods of arrival from Dorklich to Ottoburg."

Also, the working groups of RRC and SRA announced the completion of FWE refurbishment on the Dorklich - Clarksonville and Heerree - Ottoburg sections. Both sections were electrified, and trackground was replaced with gravel, thus causing bridges and viaducts to be strengthened. Also most of the tunnels on the first sections were renewed with concrete. Now the tunnels between Ottoburg and Garfield and first Dorklich tunnel await the refurbishment.

Weston station to be upgraded to high-capacity station

[WESTON, Canabai, Aug 5] After years of overloading, Canabai National Railways decided to upgrade its station, connecting RTN Templer Line, CTS Little Saigon Line, and the future CNR Peridot Line, says Minister of Transportation, Keiran Henderson.

"It's actually very convenient, since we're also upgrading the Peridot Line, we also thought of upgrading Weston station too because there's going to be a large amount of people going from Levanski and Altholz to the Canabai City area, and vice versa. With the new addition to the Koyama hill as a tourist attraction in Weston, the forecast all points to greater capacity load to the station."

During question time, Henderson also pointed out that the designated color of Peridot Line would be lime green, and Aquileia Line would be light blue.

Zion Leader Neo ousted from server

[Zion, Aug 5] Judges charged Zion Leader Neo with the death penalty for his crimes committed throughout the past month.

"Zion and its leader Neo have made server relations with any city or country very toxic. He was so obsessed with exposing the flaw in everybody that it was impossible to have even a conversation over the phone without interjection," STB Leader Ugultu commented after the ruling.

"I was the only one who supported Neo and Zion in general, but even I have to agree that he went way too far in exposing the flaw. I am very happy that the UMS Court charged him. The railway claim drama, the flying saucer drama, it was too much," read a statement from QuestionTuesdayFTW's office in Solaris.

"This is much worse than tudor's attempts to claim the entire server, the way he tried to expose the flaw in everybody made me think that he was planning uprisings and eventual overthrowing's of all the leaders in the server," Fegelein Leader AlphaSkyRaider told the Records.

"This should have been done a very long time ago. I'm all for new development in the server, but Zion was just way too aggressive in all regards," Canabai Leader NerdieSanders commented outside the courtroom.

It is expected that the UMS Council will be meeting sometime tomorrow to discuss how Zion will be divided up between the different leaders in the wake of this judgement.

Man found in cafe freezer attacks, then dies

[STB, Aug 6] A 39 year old Zion man died after jumping out a freezer and attacking an employee with a kitchen knife on Monday at a popular restaurant.

The man shouted, "For Zion!" and grabbed the knife after an employee opened the walk-in freezer at Chorum Kebab. Workers came and wrestled the man to the floor, taking away the knife in the process, after the commotion around 11 a.m., police say. During the struggle, the man lost consciousness and went into cardiac arrest. He was taken to STB General Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Nobody else was injured.

"Based on the number of emergency vehicles outside the restaurant, one could mistake the incident for an overreaction to a choking incident," told an STB resident who lives across the street from the restaurant.

Police did not release the name of the man, but did comment that he was one of the many Zion residents who fled the city in the wake of Zion Leader Neo's sentencing and subsequent dissolution of the Zion government. Like many other Zion residents, he appeared to have been brainwashed by the Zion government. The restaurant is expected to be closed until Wednesday until investigators determine how the man got into the freezer, and how long he had been in there.

Dept. Of Transport: Canabai finished upgrading both rails and roads in Sport Complex corridor

[CANABAI CITY, Canabai, Aug 10] Keiran Henderson, Minister of Transportation, said in a press conference today that Canabai has finished upgrading Highway 1, 4, and RTN Templer Line and CTS Canabai Metro. "What we have done with regards to rails is that we added a shorter and faster route in both lines. Riders from Weston to Canabai Central especially will feel a significantly shorter ride time. And as for the roads, we connected Highway 4 from Little Saigon to Canabai City with building Smyzcek Tunnel and Rosenstein Bridge; and on Highway 1, we've upgraded the Devin Nunes bridge by fixing the width at certain segments, improving supports by adding embankments, and removing redundant supports for the River Race."

These upgrades came after pressure from the Labour Party calling for greater connection within the before-lacking infrastructure in the Sport Complex corridor, and especially in between Little Saigon and Canabai; and polls are showing that the party is currently on the rise.

Airport operations disrupted across server as airspace is shut down due to stolen plane incident

[Unterganger City, Aug 11] The UMS Aviation Agency ordered the entire airspace of the UMS shut down as Canabai National Forces sent army planes to intercept a stolen plane originating from Canabai International Airport early Saturday morning.

"We had an estranged baggage handler from Fegel Air storm out onto the tarmac, and board a Q400 series plane for Fegel Air," Canabai Airport Authority representative Tony Whatever told the National Records. "An unauthorized take off was made at around 3:22 local time, and the plane cut off numerous flights attempting to take off and land at Canabai International. It is a miracle that no collisions were reported."

"We received word about the stolen plane at about 3:30 Canabai time, and immediately ordered the closure of all Canabai airspace. Once Canabai Air Traffic Control reported that the plane was leaving the Canabai radar area, we ordered the closure and ground stop of all flights across the UMS," UMSAA representative Raymond Yang told the Records. "Canabai Army Planes were immediately sent out to intercept the plane."

Throughout the entire ordeal, ATC towers throughout the server maintained contact with the plane, attempting to encourage the pilot to land. It is reported that the pilot described himself to ATC controllers as "a man in crisis, a broken man with a few screws loose." He also claimed that he did not want to harm anyone, but wanted ATC controllers to "whisper sweet nothings into [his] ear."

The plane was seen doing many unsafe maneuvers in the process, including a series of barrel rolls over Morioh. The plane eventually crashed 2.5 hours later when it ran out of fuel, crashing just outside Lakecastle. The pilot was killed and the aircraft was destroyed, but no other fatalities were reported.

UMS Airspace remains closed to all passenger air traffic while investigators work to find out details about the incident, causing numerous cancellations and many angry travellers. UMSAA reported that they hope to reopen server airspace by 00:00 Sunday morning.

Dorklich Leader KrebsLovesFiesh resigns after genital paraphernalia of Leader emerges on internet

[Dorklich, Aug 12] Dorklich Leader KrebsLovesFiesh resigned in an unprecedented move Sunday, after genital paraphernalia of Krebs emerged on the internet.

"Immediately following this revelation, my office got an influx of mail, as did my social media, with the majority of comments accusing me of being involved in pornography. I deny all accusations that I am involved in the distribution and/or creation of pornography. For the sake of my public image, I immediately resign as Leader of Dorklich," read a statement from the Leader's office.

ParrotAntics has been appointed as interim leader of Dorklich until the next election. Laval leader Gaker was taken into custody by UMS Special Forces on suspicion of releasing and distributing pornography, as well as release of material for the purpose of degrading a political leader.

This is yet another blow to the Dorklich government in recent weeks prior to the start of the next election campaign, after Leader Krebs was impeached by the Court of UMS for a week in the wake of the Railway Claim Drama. Dorklich has also been struggling with an influx of immigrants with Zion residents fleeing Zion after Leader Neo was charged with the death penalty for his crimes, and other cities in the server announced that they would not take in any immigrants.

PM Nerdie Sanders: Expand commercial zoning into the South Mazes of the National Mall

[CANABAI CITY, Canabai, Aug 12] PM Nerdie Sanders (LS) from National Coalition suggested the City to remove its largest green space at one of the party's rally at Canabai Stadium, while his crowd gave him a loud disapproval.

"Look, if we are all complaining about rising costs of living, then how about new space? I mean, just look at the map and where do you see some space we can build? Right there, the National Mall! We all have enough green space, and if we want to go to the park, just drive to Altholz and we'll have one," the PM said to a booing crowd.

Many other National Coalition candidates are also advocating using cities' green space to expand downtowns. After the rallies, many goers were seen to head towards the Labour or the Greens' rallies, in hope for an answer to preserve those green space.

"We will never remove our precious green space in our cities!" exclaimed Social Democrat leader, Sam Jarovy (LE-DO). "I love Levanski and never would I swear to remove the existing and lovely Triangle right next to our downtown. It is the green lung that all of us can enjoy and breathe in the dense and populated city." The crowd cheered to his speech. "If anything, our green spaces must stay away from the greedy Coalts' hands. National Coalition must be voted out of the parliament!"

After what was dubbed the "Green Overture" by most of the Internet, polls are showing that the National Coalition Party is taking a huge dive, especially in Kovansberg where the Soc Dems are showing signs of gaining momentum, whereas in Levanski, both Soc Dems and Greens are riding on a huge green wave, dominating the political landscape in the West. The liberals are also seeming to ride the popularity in Levanski after their new declaration of integrating the Canabai market to Athyras and Port Random market.

UMS attacked by terrorists

[Unterganger City, Aug 13] Much of the UMS was silent Monday after terrorists attacked multiple population centres throughout the server, causing an estimated 5000 casualties, 7000 non-fatal injuries, and crippling numerous services throughout the server.

The majority of the causalities came from RT Central and the TP hub, both of which were flooded with lava at 8:17 am, right in the middle of rush hour. It was especially tragic in the TP hub as many people would enter their local teleport booth, only to arrive and land straight into lava. RT Services to RT Central were shut down at 8:24 am, with all RT Services suspended at 8:39 am. All Teleport hubs were not ordered shut down until 9:02 am due to the lack of correspondence at the TP hub.

Mabula was also attacked indirectly by lava flowing down from the TP Hub. Although causalities and injuries were minimal due to the lava flowing down into Mabula outskirts. a Mabula resident is being hailed as a hero for running to Unterganger City to let the UMS Council know about the TP Hub situation.

The City of Fegelein was attacked the most heavily, with lava flooding the streets and overtaking many unsuspecting residents. Numerous buildings were burnt to the ground in the process.

"This incident is truly worse than 9/11, but thankfully while the terrorists were flooding Fegelein with lava, UMS Special Forces were able to jump in and kill the perpetrators," UMS Council Representative Sam Jarovy told the National Records.

RT Central services as well as UMS Airspace remain suspended and shut down, as is the TP hub, Many public buildings are also closed throughout the server as both cleanup and investigation continue.

Fragmented transit frustrate commuters

[NEWPORT, Canabai, Aug 14] Commuters were found unhappy with the fragmented rail transit systems run by close to half a dozen operators, according to survey conducted by the Canabai University's School of Transportation.

From 420 commuting correspondents, it was found that 40% were unhappy with the lack of integration between operators, while 27% cited having to walk between station buildings to change lines. 35% feel that the rail lines insufficiently connect between major urban centers and conversely 42% found concurrency between two or more lines running close together confusing. 12% of commuters found the numerous short lines defeat the purpose of mass transport. Of note is that the majority of the elderly and the nauseous actively avoid certain lines due to poor geometry of the lines.

When asked on actions they want to see taken by authorities, 26% recommended the extension of existing lines to cover new areas. 21% wanted consolidation of short lines into a longer line to eliminate frequent interchanges. 17% wanted the differing operators to provide more interchange stations. 11% would like to see more lines from different operators physically join their tracks to allow through services. 8% called for the merger of operators in order to streamline services throughout the UMS.

The survey sampled a representative of the commuting population in terms of gender, age, and income.

Canabai Parliament responds to August 13 attack with terrorist group labeling, many parties introduce border policies and foreign aid ahead of election

[CANABAI CITY, Canabai, Aug 13] The Parliament approves the bill of labelling ISIZ, or Insane State of Zion, as an extreme terrorist group after the August 13 attack which caused major damages and thousands of deaths in Unterganger City, Teleporter Hub, and Fegelein. Most casualties were commuters, tourists at DA's Castle, and residents in Fegelein.

"August 13, a day which will live in infamy, the server was attacked by two extremists from the Insane State of Zion from the rubbles of former Zion. Thousands and thousands of deaths, including many Canabaian tourists going through the teleporter hub, were recorded to an astounding number never seen before in the history of the world. Today, we will label the ISIZ as a terrorist group," announced PM Nerdie Sanders at the podium in front of the Parliament, facing the Square.

"We are very lucky to not get attacked by the ISIZ. A public inquiry has conducted an investigation and the head of the investigation has reported that thanks to the disorientation of Canaport that these terrorists weren't able to find their way out," the PM said. After the attack, many parties used the terrorists as a way to increase their support ahead of the election. For proponents of borders, National Coalition said they would strengthen the borders of Canabai, whereas Canabai Front wanted to close the borders completely and cancel all immigrant processes. The Communists also wanted to increase border control.

Social Democrats said they will provide aid to rebuild whatever that is attacked, that the internal police should be increased, and the border shall remain open for business conducted with Athyras. The Liberals also agreed to leave the borders open, but that the market should be "freerer." The Greens, Pirate Party, and Rainbow Bloc provided no answer, but they said that they are welcomed to providing aid for the attacked.

A 14-year-old is running for Altholz councillor before he can even vote

[ALTHOLZ, Canabai, Aug 14] Oliver Johnson, who is 14 years old, stood at the podium in front of Altholz Station. "We will continue the greatness of the green space that we are having here. We will continue to strive for the greenest, and cleanest town in the entire nation of Canabai!" exclaimed Johnson to a cheering crowd.

2 months ago, Oliver Johnson was sitting in the gallery of the council chamber, watching the politicians passing a repeal of an anti-deforestation bill to make way for more farms. After the mayor announced that the bill is passed, he stormed out of the city hall and cried in his room.

"I was hopeless," remembered Johnson. "I used to play in the forests with joy and then, it felt like my childhood was gone."

He then looked up the age requirement of running for councillor. There was none. And so he decided to file in a candidate form and 2 days after that, he was approved to run.

"I was astonished," he said. "I had to quickly gather my debate friends and explained to them what just happened. They were all on board with my cause and I made them the staff of the campaign."

So far, he's been doing very well. The Green Party were at first surprised at the youngster, but after reading his manifesto, the party accepted him and soon gave him the materials for running. His fellow candidates were also very excited of this new young addition.

"To be truthful with you, I am glad that we still have the young people who are very enthusiastic for politics," Mike Bauer, Johnson's fellow Green MP candidate, said. "You see this young man here, he'll be Deputy PM 10 years from now."

Many doubts his maturity to run for office, however Johnson still thinks he'll win the seat. "Many still judge the number that they see, but they never hear what I can offer to them. I know most of them are wrong, but please, everyone should have their first chance of doing something."

Construction lull concerns contractors

[CANABAI CITY, Canabai, 14 August] Following the moratorium on construction works following 13 August's server-wide terrorist attacks, contractors and other construction industry players voices their concern on the impact of the moratorium on the economy.

The Builders League, United, UMS Chapter's Spokesperson, Engi, told reporters that the server-wide stop work order derailed work programs, put general workers and tradesmen without work, and generally have a chain effect on the suppliers as well as the construction industry as a whole. While he understands that checks are being done on the workers to screen potential malicious actors, it also scares away some workers, and employers are finding themselves mysteriously short of a few man here and there.

He urges the authorities to lift the order as soon as possible so that workers can resume their trade and earn their wages, planners can adjust their work programmes without significant ripple effects, and ease the concerns of other stakeholders in the industry. At the same time, he is offering the services of his sentries to help with security to expedite the ongoing investigations.

Engi is a representative of the Builders League, United, a trade union of construction companies across the UMS, with a local chapter established here soon after the server opening.

UMS Airspace remains shut down

[Canabai City, Canabai. Aug 14] UMS Airspace remains shut down as airports enter their 4th day of shutdown, as yet another plane related incident further delays the reopening of UMS Airspace to non-military air traffic.

An unauthorized take off was made at Canabai International Airport early Monday night at 11:30 pm, while Airspace was still shut down. Air traffic controllers ordered the pilot of the Cessna 525 to come back down or face a shootdown by a military plane, but the pilot did not comply. Instead, he charted his plane towards Levanski, and circled around a residential area for an hour. When military planes came to order the pilot back to Canabai International, he took a very steep dive, crashing into a house in a fiery explosion, nearly hitting power lines and other houses in the process.

Preliminary investigation by Levanski Police and Canabai National Police shows that the pilot intentionally hit his own house after a domestic dispute with his wife over their marriage, which resulted in his arrest at a local park for assault. Angry by the outcome, he intended to crash his plane into his own house, killing his wife and child, while also showing off by taking off during the ground stop of all planes. The crash only lead to the death of the pilot.

This is the third such incident that has left the UMS Airspace closed in recent days, after a plane was stolen from Canabai International on Saturday, as well as the terrorist attacks that happened yesterday throughout the server.

Solaris shuts down most diplomatic relations in wake of rise of ISIZ

[Solaris, Aug 14] Solaris leader QuestionTuesdayFTW announced the severing of most diplomatic relations between numerous countries and cities across the UMS in the wake of numerous ISIZ attacks, as well as numerous death threats from former Zion leader Neo.

"I have literally cut my vacation short to address you all here today. With the rise of ISIZ attacking numerous areas of the UMS, including the TP Hub, Fegelein, and The National Records office, I hereby announce that Solaris will no longer engage in foreign relations with any city or country in the UMS, with the very notable exception of Canabai. I had a lot of respect for the former leader of Zion, but I have been receiving numerous death threats from him in recent days for being the ultimate decider in the guilty ruling for his crimes. I am very supportive of many concepts of towns throughout the UMS, but the entire purpose of Zion revolved way too much around one idea. It was only there to "diffuse the Flaw,"" QuestionTuesdayFTW told a crowd before having to stop, visibly frustrated.

"He has gone to the point where he wanted the UMS Council dissolved, he wanted leaders impeached and sentenced with the death penalty, he has wanted to destroy towns just for being against Zion. I have lost all due respect for Neo and for Zion, and I am cutting all ties with all countries and cities so that Solaris can go back and establish a better way to go about our foreign relations. Previously, before the sentencing, Solaris was a leader in foreign relations, creating numerous deals with other countries. We were the leader of the movement to support Zion, as many cities and countries then were very much against Zion, and close to sending in invasion forces. At one point, Zion/Solaris foreign relations were of the strongest in the server. In the wake of these death threats and degradation of myself, Solaris, as well as other cities, countries, and leaders in the server, Solaris has decided to cut all foreign relations in order to reevaluate future strategy when it comes to dealing with other countries."

QuestionTuesdayFTW was unavailable for comment immediately following the announcement.

Canabai Library and Archive building and Prime Residences on fire set by ISIZ, many casualties recorded

[CANABAI CITY, Canabai, Aug 14] Another turn of events came for the August 14 raid attacks when ISIZ targeted the CLA in Little Saigon and PM Nerdie Sander's residences in Canabai City. Thirty-two people perished in the fires, mostly students of young age and PM's staffers in the Residence. The police reported that foreign perpetrators were arrested 2 hours after the fire in Palace Station where they were hiding.

"This is an outrageous act of terrorism, being brought on by the State of Zion," announced Prime Minister Nerdie Sanders, who is thankfully unhurt because he was in Levanski. "I declare closing the border until the upcoming elections for the sake of our national security. This is only temporary and I leave the new government to resolve the issue of our security. The following statement, however, does not necessarily reflect the party nor the government's opinion, but rather mine: Canabai is breached."

"I am deeply hurtful of the attack, and certainly will always. Many people I have regularly talked to while working in the Residences have withered under these extremists spreading hateful ideology. You cannot imagine losing your co-workers when they're doing their job, and while you're away governing this country under pressure. It's heart breaking."

[Laval City, Laval, Aug 15 (North American Eastern Time)] The Midlum sound truck has returned with ultranationalists holding signs and flags of Laval, slowing the traffic of Autoroute 10 near Route 220, the Midlum used it's loudspeakers to announce the following message:

"For the people of Laval, we have news to announce, a Zionian rammed his Mercedes into your people and stabbed a few more, while we pay condolences to the Lavallois victims, we also like to present you with a solution to this fuck-up, we shall punish the Zionians with death, find a Zionian, send them to us where we'll beat them up and shoot them, dispose their bodies like garbage. This solution is the only solution to prevent more of their terrorist attacks from happening."

Riots ensued again, ultranationalists continue to look for Zionians and their failed attempts to lynch them, but has also met counter-protests, far-left organizations used pepper spray, spilled urine on their enemies, et cetera. However, for the failure to intervene in the attacks, the Ministry of Law Enforcement has faced criticism and with president Louche (Gaker73) condemning the attacks and the ensuing riots.

However, despite criticism for the failure to intervene, the Ministry of Law Enforcement did promise the Gendarmerie to patrol sites and intervene in any future riots, Gendarmes are now a sight across Lavallois streets.

To explain what caused the chain-reaction of these riots, an pro-Neo Zionian rammed his Mercedes G55 into a university, injuring and killing some people, then stabbed three people when the Mercedes failed to move.

An eyewitness from across the block heard them shout "Viva La Zion" before an explosive device detonated, killing 17 people and injuring 38, as well as completely destroying the bar itself. Among the dead was Tagor mayor Josh.

"This is a very sad day for the UMS, as we have lost 2 great leaders within a span of minutes." said Morioh mayor AlphaSkyRaider. "It is believe that this was a planned attack by the Insane State Of Zion (ISIZ) and we believe that there may be more targets later today", he said before he was driven off in an armored car to an undisclosed location.

This comes just a mere span of minutes after the leader of Solaris, QuestionTuesdayFTW, was killed by another ISIZ member. The National Records believes that ISIZ is trying to target and assassinate different leaders around the world after its city, Zion was destroyed in a bombing by multiple parties. All remaining mayors of major cities have been evacuated into undisclosed locations.

"We will not back down from this fight." says Canabai leader Nerdington. "We will continue to attack these bloody terrorist bastards until every single one of them is dead. We may have lost many lives throughout this war, but we will have the last laugh". Updates on the great UMS war will continue shortly.

Canabai election August 2018: Social Democrats win largest party, forms absolute majority coalition with Greens, Liberals and Rainbow Bloc.



[CANABAI CITY, Canabai, Aug 21] The Green Party made the most seats gained, especially in Canabai City and Levanski, with a 15-seat increase compared with the last parliament. This increase came after the Green Overture initiated by Prime Minister Nerdie Sanders when he suggested to remove green space for building. Liberals also won 5 more seats, mostly in Levanski, after promising to create a more relaxed economic model for businesses. Soc Dem, Greens, Liberals, and Rainbow Bloc are in the process of completing a coalition deal, with Sam Jarovy to become the next Prime Minister.

National Coalitions, however, suffered the worst loss in Canabai election history. Only because of this that the Soc Dem gained the largest seat-count in “We’ve done our best, we’ve made an impact, and we would like to congratulate to the ones who have won the elections, especially on the other side of the aisle,” PM Nerdie Sanders conceded in his post-election speech in front of the party’s headquarters. National Coalitions actually made a 4 seat gain, on par with the Soc Dems, in Newport proper, however it is not enough for them to retain their largest count in the parliament.

This election is also a special one, where two new parties enter the parliament for the first time: the Pirate Party, and the Rainbow Bloc. William K, the leader of the party whom we do not know his real identity yet, ran his election campaign in Levanski-East Grid district and won a seat there. He announced that he will send either a robot or another representative on his behalf to protect his anonymity. As for the Rainbow Bloc, which won 1 seat in Canabai City and 2 seats in Levanski, this was a victorious result for their gay cause. “We put our expectations at either no seat, or 1. Winning 4 seats blew everyone out in the campaign HQ,” said Brandon Gaylord, who himself won a seat in Canabai City-Downtown district. “Us gays can finally have a voice advocating shirtless police on the streets!”

After the deadly August raids that occurred from east to west of the server, there is seemingly a rise of far-right movement throughout Canabai. In this election, Canabai Front won an extra 3 seats in the Parliament: one in Canabai City–Downtown hold by the party’s leader, Andrew Anderson; one in Levanski–Downtown; and another one in Newport–Central. The party also lost a seat in Little Saigon to the Communist Party, however Anderson calls this a major victory for Canabai. “For once, the people is realizing how vulnerable the country is,” proclaimed the party’s leader, ”and after the raids and the fires in Canabai, the people have realized that they must take a stand for their nation.”
