The Republic of Iosheyya




"We want independence! Independence! Say it with me! Independence! INDEPENDENCE!" yells Antonio Iglesias, the leader of the Panamanian Independence Movement. It had been months, and the strain growing in Panama got worse, and soon, the National Guard was called in to stop the protests. Luis Dominguez, a Senator of the Panamanian National Congress, spoke out against the Venezuelans. But, one day in May, everything changed. It was a Monday, and everyone went to work, or was at school. As people were taught and all, a national broadcast came along. Hundreds of people waited to hear their Glorious Leader, Sergio Alvarez. What was said, was a gamechanger for Colombia. "Hello my fellow Colombians. As you may have already heard, there have been protests, around the country. But today, is the end of them. And the reason why, is because Gran Colombia, shall start to unite its people into one. It is time to hear the peoples voice, and listen to their demands, for the future of this country. Amen."

Meanwhile, in the Colombian National Congress, there was an argument. One of the Senators who was Pro-West had got into a vocal fight with a Pro-Eastern Senator. Soon, a fistfight broke out, and as this happened, the protests came back. They have one more demand, but as they tried to enter, Police, with National Guard forces, started to fight with the crowd. But then, soon some protestors got into the building, and a all out fight began, between Westerners, Easterners, and the Protestors. All of a sudden, when the fire could've started, tens of hundreds of police started to arrest protestors, and Congressmen alike. The Country was in chaos from there, which led to Colombia asking Brazil and the USA for paramilitary help, with aid sent too. The next day, the protests stopped, and peace was returned to Colombia.

A Emergency Government now started, as centralization efforts began, with force being used if necessary. Sergio Alvarez was overthrown by the Military, and they immediately formed a Emergency Government as stated above, under their control. Reforms were made, and the country was back on track. General Ivan Lozano, a Military Commander, ordered the immediate buildings of roads, highways, mines, and more, and the immediate excavation of rich things in soil, like diamonds, rubies, etc. Oil was drilled, and soon, the economy was booming to a high level. Though, Political Freedom in Gran Colombia, was normal, with things like supporting a political party allowed, but not really speaking out against the government and all. The worst was Civil Rights, which was only limited to Colombian People, and not many Foreigners.

Soon, after Colombia got back on its feet, it started oil drilling on the Venezuelan Coast, as it also started to try and find newer, better, energy sources. But, protests continued, and soon, it looked as it a Revolution would begin. It never began though, as the Government started to fix things, like the Civil Rights and Political Issues in the country. The military was also strengthened, and invested in, and from there, a 3 Year Plan begun, to modernize the country even more, beyond roads and highways. Industrialization began, with Brazil being asked to help send foreign aid and equipment to try and help modernize the country into a South American Powerhouse. At home, Colombia started its Space Program, trying to compete with the other powers side to be the first one into Space and all.

It looks as if Colombia may be on the rise, to maybe even be a world power.

The Bundesrepublik of New Provenance

    June 1959
    Split in Half

A   N E W   E R A

| The CDU/CSU's Bundestag party conference filed quietly back to their seats after casting their secret ballots at the Christian Democratic Union headquarters in Frankfurt. The party's membership in the Bundestag - numbering 201 members in total - now had the responsibility of essentially selecting the next Federal Chancellor of Germany, after Konrad Adenauer had served successfully for almost a decade. The party and her sister coalition partner, the Free Democratic Party (FDP), still had a majority in the Bundestag, and thus the CDU/CSU leader elected today would become the de facto Second Federal Chancellor. The race was effectively a tossup between Economy Minister Ludwig Erhard and Baden-Wurtttemburg Minister-President Kurt Georg Kiesinger, both of whom were considered the frontrunners in terms of support among the conference and among support from the party base itself, an influential factor. The deciding factor would most likely be the group of socially centrist CDU/CSU deputies who had occasionally voted with the SPD on various social-oriented legislation, and were leaning towards a minor candidate, HILDEGARD BLEYLER. |

| KONRAD ADENAUER, the current Chancellor and the frontrunner for Federal President in the 1959 presidential elections coming in just a few days, was in the hall, speaking to the various candidates. As a member of the Bundestag for the CDU, he would himself be casting a ballot in the race, but he had personally refused to offer any endorsements. It was, however, indicated that he head leanings towards KIESINGER, who many considered as having a slight edge over Erhard, the Economy Minister. As the ballots came in and the votes were tallied, the room was tense. Kiesinger and Erhard were practically neck-to-neck, with all other candidates falling behind rapidly. There was suspense until the end, when; |

    KURT GEORG KIESINGER - 72 votes (35.8%)
    LUDWIG ERHARD - 65 votes (32.3%)
    HEINRICH LUBKE - 30 votes (14.9%)
    FRANZ JOSEF STRAUSS - 29 votes (14.4%)
    EUGEN GERSTENMEIER - 2 votes (0.9%)
    HILDEGARD BLEYLER - 1 vote (0.4%)
    ERNST BENDA - 1 vote (0.4%)
    KAI-UWE VON HASSEL - 1 vote (0.4%)

| The first round came as expected, though a disappointment to Erhard's supporters. According to party rules, a majority had to be reached for a new leader to be elected, so, a second round was decided upon. A recess of two hours was called amongst the conference before the second round, allowing time for the top two candidates - Kiesinger and Erhard - to attempt to sweep up as many votes as possible. It was acknowledged that it would be an extremely close race. Bleyler, Benda and Gerstenmeier - worth 4 votes in total - pledged their support to Kiesinger, while Von Hassel and Strauss endorsed Erhard. The party membership, however, was unlikely to vote along the lines of whomever they had voted in the first round, except for a few diehard supporters. As the conference filed back into the hall, and the second round of ballots were casted, the tension in the room only grew. Kiesinger was seated next to Adenauer, while Erhard was stood near the ballot-counting table. Then - |

    KURT GEORG KIESINGER - 105 votes (52.2%)
    LUDWIG ERHARD - 96 votes (47.7%)

| And perhaps by the slimmest of margins - KIESINGER would be Germany's next Chancellor. Naturally, the vote was yet to take place within the Bundestag, but when Adenauer's resignation comes with his inevitable victory in the presidential election, the Bundestag - with its CDU/CSU-FDP majority coalition government - would elect Kiesinger as the country's second Federal Chancellor. |

| Sure enough, in the Third Federal Convention, convened days later with the Chancellor and the Chancellor-designate in attendance, the presidential vote was held amongst the members who reflected the rough allocation of seats in the various Landtag (state legislatures) and in the federal Bundestag. The CDU/CSU and the FDP had a strong majority, but many expected crossover support from the SPD and the DPD for Adenauer, a popular Chancellor with strong over-the-aisle support. By secret ballot, the votes were tallied, and with a majority necessary - |

    KONRAD ADENAUER (CDU) - 601 votes (57.8%)
    ERICH OLLENHAUER (SPD) - 431 votes (41.5%)
    JOSEPH GARTNER (DPD) - 6 votes (0.57%)

| To practically nobody's surprise, Adenauer swept the vote in the first round, securing roughly 57.8% of the vote, against 41.5% for Ollenhauer, and 0.57% for Gartner, the third party candidate. The FDP had voted entirely in support of Adenauer, but many believed that whether or not the CDU/CSU's junior coalition partner fielded their own candidate or not, Adenauer would've likely still come out on top with a majority in the first round. Nonetheless, the changes in national leadership were now made official. Adenauer, after almost a decade of service, resigned from the position of Federal Chancellor, and took his oath of office as the next Federal President, succeeding Theodor Heuss of the Free Democratic Party. A day later, the Bundestag convened an emergency session to elect Kurt Georg Kiesinger, the new CDU parliamentary chairman, as the country's NEXT CHANCELLOR. It was a new era in Germany's political world, though it remained a familiar one. However, the CDU had been quietly but bitterly divided between Kiesinger and Erhard, who, it was reported, had reluctantly accepted to remain in the position of Economy Minister under Kiesinger's cabinet. While the election had now concluded, there was still a sort of tension between the two - only to grow with the next general election coming in two years. |

The Republic of Bhaarat Lok

    June 1959
    India on the High Seas

      प्रधान मंत्री नेहरू ने नई रक्षा नीति में अरब सागर में एक मजबूत भारतीय नौसेना उपस्थिति का दावा किया

    JUNE 1959 | जून 1959

      | The Lok Sabha committee hearings on the Republic's military development and growth plan from 1960-1970 allowed Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru a platform from which he could discuss clearly and thoroughly his government's planned policies with regards to the development of and investment in the Indian Armed Forces. A crucial arm of authority in one of the world's largest functioning democracies, the armed forces had since the establishment of the Union nearly a decade ago (c. 1950) served as the chief defense forces of the Republic. In the crisis with Pakistan alongside the Iranian government sometime ago, the armed forces had served as one of the crucial buffers between the Indian people and all-out war with the country's northern Muslim neighbor. Heading into the new decade, and facing geopolitical uncertainty in the MENA region, the Prime Minister had directed his trusted ministry officials to begin drafting a new defense policy that would re-affirm India's undeniable influence in the surrounding regions. |

      | The policy as crafted directed for India to develop her air forces and, primarily, her naval forces, and to focus its presence in the Indian Ocean and more crucially the Arabian Sea, which borders Pakistan, parts of Iran, Oman, Yemen, and Somalia in the Horn of Africa. Before the Lok Sabha - still dominated firmly by Nehru's own INC party - the Prime Minister unveiled this new policy. Heavy financial investments into the Indian Navy would accompany the construction of new shipyards, naval bases, and outposts to extend the nation's security forces' reach into the Arabian Sea 'to the extent required in order for us to defend India's interests'. |

      | The policy, naturally, was understood within defense circles as a way of re-affirming India's strength and position in the region. Nehru himself had told defense aides that 'I will not accept a world where our neighbors look at India and see something they can easily push over'. He envisioned privately of an Arabian Sea secured by India and other 'neutral partners', committed to 'peace and unity, rather than division and chaos'. Proposing to the Lok Sabha, he laid out a plan for millions in investment into India's shipbuilding industry, both civilian and military, and for the growth of India's coast guard units to allow them to supplement Navy forces if necessary in a sea-based conflict. The integration of more advanced communications and navigational systems into the country's existing naval fleets would also be proposed for the 1960-1965 time period, with the introduction of natively-built warships being slated for the 1970s and 1980s. |

      | Naturally, there was little pushback to a plan proposed by the supermajority government that dominated even the country's judicial system, but nonetheless, questions were raised regarding the extravagant spending around the program. It was clear that this was a significant point of spending for the Indian government, but it was also clear that ensuring the defense and security of India's interests domestically and abroad was also a significant point of interest. Especially in the Arabian Sea and the Middle East, where various nations were vying for power and influence. Nehru himself did not imagine India as a conquering empire, but rather as a 'nation you could approach for support, a nation whose presence is clearly felt'. By the end of the 1960s, he told the legislature, he intended for India to be 'capable of projecting her unique influence and strength across the region'. |

The People's Republic of Peking Zhongguo

    (CCP) People’s Republic of China / (CCP) 中华人民共和国


    May 1959 | 1959年5月


      A creative member of the Chinese Politburo once wrote a Peasant Poem that summed up the government's agricultural policy, and no one in China at the time had any reason to question a word of it. Peking predicted that the nation's farmers will produce an unprecedented 375 million tons of grain in 1959, nearly doubling the output from 1957. The idea that hardly an additional acre of land would have to be planted under cultivation in 1959 seems even more incredible now. The PRC sent in millions of pounds of fertilizer and dispersed specialists across the nation to educate farmers on the benefits of double cropping, closer planting, and deeper plowing. "As great as the revolutionary vigor is," the party assured the farmer, "so great will be the yield."

      However, there was a slight shift in the agricultural proclamations as time passed. In his speech to the National People's Congress, Premier Zhou Enlai alluded to the possibility that "output for any particular year may be lower than the previous year." Meanwhile, scathing criticism of local administrators who had been "overzealous" or even dishonest in their assessments of farm yields began to surface in the controlled press. For example, instead of 34 million tons of grain, only 30 million were produced in Guangdong province. The People's Daily criticized the "impractical, inefficient, and dangerous" close planting, saying it has led to "little, if any, increase" in productivity since 1958.

      In reality, Mao Zedong's entire "year of the big leap" agenda was a failure that put a strain on farms, cities, and infrastructure due to poor preparation and execution. Fortunately for them, the administration of the People's Republic of China found a method to deflect much of the blame: nature this spring took a cruel hand in China, as it so frequently has in the past. The provinces of Jilin and Hebei experienced drought while large parts of Central China were flooded. Forty million Chinese were anxiously trying to protect a wheat harvest in Szechwan that had been severely damaged by spring's unusual warmth. Six provinces were hit by plant fungus, while in Henan, 5,000,000 farmers were fighting off bug infestations. Official reports confirmed that the "worst flood of the century" had hit the provinces of Jiangsu, Anhui, Fujian, and Guangdong, swept past Henan, and then twisted its way down the North and West rivers toward Canton, a city of 1.5 million people. Canton's dikes were successful because of the tens of thousands of people who sustained their defenses.

      However, 2,000,000 acres of land were reportedly flooded in the neighboring Guangdong province, according to Beijing. It was reported last week by the New China News Agency that the local battle cry was "Nobody drowns while there are members of the Communist Party around." Less boastful discourse about defeating the flood of Water emerged, though.


    🇨🇳 🇨🇳 🇨🇳

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabiyah

    May 20, 1959

    Saudi-Indian energy and industrial trade agreement signed.

King Faisal bin Abdulaziz seeks to expand Saudi diplomatic relations further with other Asian nations in the east than just Korea, and the he decided that the next nation to establish diplomatic relationship with is India. Establishing relationship with India is a logical choice since both nations share the same sea and ocean with each other and there have been relation between the two since ancient times with trade and cultural links between ancient India and Arabia date back to the third millennium BC. King Faisal flew to India on May 16, 1959 and landed in the capital city of New Delhi where he was greeted and welcome by Indian PM Jawaharlal Nehru. They then spent a few days at the PM residence discussing the potential treaty between the two countries until they both agreed. On May 20, 1959, King Faisal and Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru signed the "Saudi-Indian Energy and industrial trade agreement" into effect. This agreement would prosper trade between the kingdom and India along with the other provisions such as 1. Saudi Arabia would provide oil and gas, light and heavy industrial goods, luxury products, and textiles. 2. India would provide the kingdom with mineral resources, industrial products, and agricultural goods. A few hours after the treaty's signing, King Faisal left India and headed back home to Saudi Arabia with a copy of the trade agreement.

The United People of Zaire of Paseo

| Once again Worldvision Song Contest has visited La Plata, after their fantastic victory last year in Slovenia. La Plata, as of today, is the only country to have won Worldvision Song Contest twice in the same decade. However, once again La Plata has hosted a fantastic contest, with the city of Santiago showing off its fantastic development and modernisation over the last few years. Furthermore, the contest was attended by the leader of La Plata, Mr Peron, and other major high dignitaries of La Plata which in result pushed many Ambassadors to attend, such as the Zairean, British, American and even Soviet ambassador to appear at the contest. |

| The winner of Worldvision Song Contest 1959 is MARIA POBER with her song HOMESICKNESS from the SOVIET UNION. Historically, this is the first time that an Eastern Bloc nation has won Worldvision. The contest itself was very smooth with La Plata making sure no political incidents take place, but during the final results announcement the American representation left the arena. It is yet unknown whether the United States will send their representative next year to the Soviet Union, but the Worldvision Committee will reach out to the Soviet authorities about organising the contest next year in the Soviet Union. Ms Pober took the stage once more to sing her beautiful ballad as the night ended, with the show being televised, transmitted through radio and recorded for cinema use around the world. |

The Apostolic Holy See of Holy Vatican City States

        THE HOLY SEE



    | SECRETARIUS STATUS SANCTITATIS SUAE - | Affectionately, the fatherly Pope John XXIII issued his first encyclical last week, and it proved to be a fatherly message of warning, hope and encouragement. Ad Petri Cathedram (To the Chair of Peter), the circular letter's opening words by which it will be known, is neither a trail-blazing social document like Pope Leo XIII's Rerum Novarum in 1891, nor a detailed doctrinal exposition like Pope Pius XII's Humani Generis in 1950. It is instead notable for the familiarity of its style, the range of its concern and the warmth with which it faces its subject: On Promoting—Under the Impulse of Charity—Truth, Unity and Peace.

    The Pope warned against error, ignorance ("the source and root of all evil") and war, which can only bring "appalling destruction and ruin, and this whether the people are victor or vanquished." He urged statesmen "to try every approach" leading to "fraternal harmony of nations." Turning to another kind of harmony, the Pope hoped that the forthcoming Ecumenical Council will move non-Catholic Christians to join the Church as a "wonderful manifestation of unity . . . When we lovingly invite you to the unity of the Church, we are inviting you not to the home of a stranger but to your own, to the Father's house which belongs to all." Then the Pope addressed himself "to each individual section of the Catholic Church":

      Pope John XXIII's Encyclical: "To the Bishops, both of the Eastern and of the Western Church, who as rulers of the Christian people bear, together with us, the burden of the day and the heat," the Pope expressed sympathy for "the unhappy falling away of so many of your children, who are tricked by the wiles of error. To the Missionaries, no undertaking, perhaps, is so pleasing to God as this, for it is intimately linked with that duty binding all—the spreading of God's kingdom." Of all in mission work in any capacity, the Pope said: "We desire them to know that they have a very special place in our heart. To the Nuns, oh how much these holy virgins accomplish! How extensive and how notable the work they do, which no one else can carry out with the same mixture of virginal and maternal solicitude. To the Sick Weak, and Aged, let them recall that by the sufferings of this life, which cleanse, upraise and ennoble the mind, we can gain the eternal joy of heaven. To the Poor, they cause me grief, not only because we have a father's desire that in social matters, justice, which is a Christian virtue, should rightly control, but also because the enemies of the Church easily abuse the unjust conditions of the proletariat so as to lure them to their own side by false promises and specious errors. To the Persecuted, we wish to give offense to none; nay, we desire freely to pardon all and to beg this of God. But our conception of our holy office demands that we do all we can to protect the rights of our brethren and children, that we persist in our asking that freedom of law be granted, as it ought, to everyone. If the rights of God and religion have been ignored or trampled on, the very foundations of human society, sooner or later, collapse into ruin. . ."

    Perhaps the biggest news of the week in Vatican City was a pay raise. Pope John XXIII is giving pay hikes to about 5,000 lay and clerical employees of the Holy See. Curia cardinals will probably be raised $100 from their present $800 a month; archbishops and bishops from $240-$275 to $265-$335. Pay of manual workers—the blue-overalled sanpietrini—will go from about $82 to about $112, with family allowances sharply up from $8 for a wife and $8 for each child to $16 for a wife and $19.70 per child. With the low rents in Vatican apartments and the rock-bottom prices at Vatican City stores, this will give the Vatican citizen a considerable advantage over his Italian peer. A Grade 10 clerk in any Italian ministry, for instance, earns about $104 a month, minus about $11.20 deducted for taxes and social security. His Vatican opposite number will presumably get $147.20 a month without deductions, will pay 20% to 50% less for food and clothes.

    The Pope is also planning to change Vatican working hours from the traditional 8 a.m.-to-2 p.m. schedule, to answer the complaints of many foreign prelates, diplomats and newsmen, who have long protested that it is almost impossible to get the ponderous, antique machinery of the Vatican to grind after lunch. Together, the wage boost and hour stretch-out will probably cut down on the Vatican tradition of "moonlighting," i.e., taking on extra spare-time jobs which the Church itself strongly detests.


      Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto,
      Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculorum. Amen.

The Commonwealth Of Sudan of Nileia

    July, 1959 | Zat Al-Natikin High School for Girls, El Fula, Kordofan Province, The Commonwealth Of Sudan


El Fula is a small sized city on the western reaches of the Kordofan Province but is notable for its centralized location within the entirety of the Sudanese state, it is here that delegates from across the nation have agreed to hold the constitutional convention of 1959, that shall go towards the establishment of a Sudanese Republic upon the abolishment of the British monarchy from Sudan’s head of state and the dissolution of the Commonwealth government.

The delegates consisted of essentially three representatives from each of the Sudanese provinces. Though the Azheri administration feared that the delegation would lead interests along racial and ethnic lines, the delegates of Khartoum and nearby provinces alone have found themselves outnumber by a coalition of federalist delegates, seeking to implement a federal system in Sudan and decentralized the north’s, mostly Khartoum’ hold of power on the rest of the country.

After weeks of negotiations and deals that had taken place inside a Girl’s high school in the town center of El Fula, the delegates had finally drafted a constitution of the Republic, that would implement ideas and methods contributed by mostly all of the Sudanese regions, bringing with them great representation towards the southern and non Arab minorities of the nation.

The draft of the constitution is as follows, though these are only the basic amendments that go towards the setting up of a political structure that is to serve as the basic foundations for the new Sudanese Republic.


The Republic Of Sudan

Home | Khartoum --

The Constitution Of The Republic

The Preamble : | The Republic shall strive towards the establishment of a just and orderly society that mirrors and derives its structure from the former Commonwealth Constitution of 1949. It is in the spirit and popular will of the Sudanese people that the government and constitution of the Republic of Sudan shall be established for the purpose of serving the people by ensuring the equal protection and participation of all its citizens which would go towards achieving the goal of establish Sudan as a stable and prosperous safe homeland for all its people. |

Article One: Identity

Read dispatch

The March of the Republic has now begun. Azah, the female personification of the Sudanese state, was on her way out from the lingering arms of Britannia, making her way toward the path of self-determination. She holds a shield with the colors green for the Nile’s fertility, yellow for the Gold of the Nubians, and blue for the sacred rivers that flow through her lands. At her right side is a Rhino that has accompanied her throughout the years, and on her left is a bird of spectacular beauty, a signal of new beginnings. Azah sets her shield right on the conjunction of the Blue and White Niles, here is where she shall now guide the nation on by the will of her Lord that has created her and the lands she roams. Freedom, Justice, and Sudan, that’s all that she says, that’s all that she desires.

(Idk what this bullshi was I felt like I needed to say something)
