The Cabinet (Part 1) Vice-Chairman Paul Ryan Vice-Chairman Ryan is an old hand in Istanbul Politics. Before being selected as ViceChairman he served for 15 years in parliament.

historic event dating back to 1885 when the first settlers of Plutonia killed a narwhal to feed themselves during the hard winters. To honor their hardships we kill narwhals to remind us of our roots and of how our lives have improved since then. Offices for the Games and Wildlife Recreation Agency have already extended their hours in preparation for the large numbers of people expected to register for the event.
Narwhals typically roam around in small packs, or “families”
The consensus from most professional hunters is to wait for the narwhals to come to a narrow area of water and then strike. Very rarely do they die with the first strike so be prepared to hit them multiple times. Always be careful when approaching them, they are as beautiful as they are deadly and have been known to kill. Though not normally worn by seasoned hunters the Games and Wildlife Recreations Agency recommends wearing a Kevlar Vest to

Space Station Construction Resumes With the nation’s rebuilding efforts finished the direction of the country now looks to the sky. At the outbreak of the last global war, the planning of the Plutonian Space Station (PSS) had been shelved but now Chairman Reed has made a promise to set up a permanent space station in orbit within 10 years.
Chairman Reed Visits NPL and UPN on a Diplomatic Tour A Plutonian Astronaut works on a Space Station belonging to another nation of the Republic The station would be primarily designed for Research Purposes and hold 4 main labs along with living quarters for 7 people. In addition Chairman Reed has stated that when the station opens it will also be open to the top scientists of the Republic.
Our glorious leader Chairman Reed has gone abroad on a diplomatic tour to the alliances; Nuclear Proliferation League (NPL) and the United Purple Nations (UPN). While on this tour Reed has been instructed to answer any questions the two alliances had for him and to ask questions he deems necessary. While he has no set objective for the tour he did say this: “I wish to spread the Republic’s message of peace and prosperity to those willing to hear it. We live in a Dark Age when alliances can declare war on another on the whims of uneducated warlords, and in this Dark Age finding alliances that are competent, loyal, and brave is a rare sight. In addition to the formal conferences I also take in the culture of the alliance, NPL’s Atomic Burger is by far the best I have ever had”
