Today marks the first anniversary of my entrance into RP. With that, I apply for this, with the hope of acceptance.
Nation Name in RP: the Republic of Eastern Haane.
Nation Name on NationStates: Post Fascist Austria
Puppet: Of Istkalen. Istkalen has had a troubled past; one marked by long dictatorship - preparation for democracy, say those who instituted it, but whether this is true is unknown to the people. Some look upon the days of dictatorship with happiness, seeing it as a time of cultural and economic growth; a time of national unity and strength, with a politics efficient and free of corruption. Others, of course, look at it negatively, finding it oppressive, jingoistic, and perhaps even fascistic. Now appears Eastern Haane - troubled, as Istkalen was in 1946 with the institution of dictatorship; and following its path almost to a T, creating the same sectoral chambers it did, centralizing as it did, effectively recreating all the institutions, from politics to economy to culture, that existed in dictatorial Istkalen. With elections approaching due to a scandal involving large sums of money being given to "insane" political parties, mostly dedicated to the holding of seances to long dead and odious political figures, from Franco to Craticus, Istkalen has much to reflect on. What did dictatorship do for it? Is it because of the "period of national development" that it is stable, or was it entirely unecessary? What did the people of Istkalen lose; what did they gain? And what are they to do about the downtrodden but hopeful people of a nation that, while far away, has followed in its footsteps? This and more questions will arise if Eastern Haane returns; for Eastern Haane would in effect be an echo of a dark past; an echo that will and must be heard. The politicians of Istkalen, young, ambitious, naive, some of whom celebrate the authoritarianism of the past, will be forced to see the past now, and forced to evaluate it. In Eastern Haane, too, will the older politicians, tired, trying to bring together a country almost totally shattered, will there be questions from the experience of Istkalen. What do they risk; what do they gain? Is the institution of dictatorship moral? And so on and so forth. EH Is the same EH, ignore what was written previously. Now, of cou
