The Government of the Republic of Istkalen


  • EU

    From the Council of Ministers

    Istkalen is willing to surrender on the following conditions:

    • that no territory is annexed and our territorial integrity remains
    • that the present state is recognized as popularly supported and is allowed to remain as to hold fully democratic elections under European observation
    • that our people are allowed to remain where they are

  • EU

    From the Council of Ministers

    Istkalen surrenders unconditionally to the Kingdom of Reitzmag; however, any attempt to annex territories in Istkalen will be regarded as an act of war, and will cause retribution.


  • EU

    From the Chamber of State, approved by the Council of Ministers

    On the Position of Councillor

    As the decision was made by a body elected and operating not according to law, in contrast to the present legislative body existing in Istkalen, Anja Mauer's recall is declared illegitimate. She thus remains in her position as Councillor.

  • EU

    From the Chamber of Professions

    Several members of the Chamber of Professions have voiced opposition to the motion of the Chamber of State effectively nullifying the recall of Anja Mauer. The decision is thus reversed, temporarily. Gertrude Echteran remains the representative of Istkalen in the European Council.

    From the Government of Istkalen

    Exercising powers under the Provisions against the Northern Hordes, the Government of Istkalen schedules elections to a Constituent Assembly, per the Constitution of 1975, on 31 May 2021. The Assembly will convene on 10 June 2021, at which point this government will be dissolved entirely. The Assembly will have, in addition to the creation of a new constitution, the responsibility of carrying out its statutes in due time.

  • EU

    The Censorate has impeached Gertrude Echteran on the charge of treason and negligence of her duties. She will stand before the High Court on these charges, as per the Constitution of 1975.

    On Sanctions

    I'm sure, of course, that you, people of Europe, would not want your energy to be more expensive. Your lamps; your computers; all of your electronics.

    Of course you wouldn't. But it would certainly be terribly unfortunate if it were; if say, almost a third of Europe's uranium were suddenly inaccessible, would it? If a fourth of Europe's tungsten were? And even a sixth of its rare-earth metals?

    It certainly would. Everything would be more expensive; your energy, your lightbulbs, and even your smartphones and your computers, all of which, we all know, are almost inseparable from us. And that would certainly be a disaster, wouldn't it?

    Secession

    The territory of Istkalen secedes from Istkalen. The government of the newly founded Republic of Istkalen, which is independent and unlinked with Istkalen, is that which I have made clear in the previous decrees I have made out. I am proclaimed head of state of the new Republic of Istkalen, and will be until a constitution can be written.

    The Republic of Istkalen, as a new entity, applies for membership in the European Union, which it cannot be denied.

    Head of State of the Republic of Istkalen


  • EU

    From the Head of State of the Republic of Istkalen

    Iras Tilkanas is appointed as Interim Councillor to the European Union for the Republic of Istkalen, which is unrelated to the former "Istkalen," by nature of being a secessionist state encompassing all of the territory of Istkalen and thus one made from nothing, until elections on the 5th of May.

  • EU

    From the Head of State of the Republic of Istkalen

    Due to the present political chaos, elections to the presently appointed state occupational chambers, although not the state chambers, which must continue to play a stable role until stabilization of the country, will occur on a "single-list" basis - that is, a single list will be presented to citizens, to approve or to reject. I have invited the following groups, divided into two categories, to attend a political consultative congress that will create the list:

    Political Parties

    • the Union Party, representing the intelligentsia
    • the Communist Party, representing workers
    • the Patriotic League, representing the youth
    • the National Republican Party, representing artisans
    • the Center Party, representing agricultural workers

    Mass Organizations

    • the Trade Federation of Istkalen, representing the workers
    • the Free Istkalener Youth, representing the youth
    • the Istkalener Cultural Organization, representing the cultural interests of Istkalen
    • the Women's Liberation Association, representing the women of Istkalen

    This will not be a permanent measure. Full democracy will return upon the stabilization of the political association, which the state is presently trying to effect.

    From the Head of State of the Republic of Istkalen

    Regarding the State of Total Participation

    Citizens, we must remember, the Republic of Istkalen is not the vulgar republic of the West, nor one that is false - one that endeavors to cover up the abuses of its leaders as a great performance for the whole of the world. The Republic of Istkalen is a state of total participation, based on the union, the great ulsikes, and the town, the great ulsien. It is not one where you can shirk off one's duties to its maintenance, as in the West, where most of the population is allowed to remain complacent as to maintain the power of the ruling class. No. It is one where duty is expected of everyone - the duty to create and participate in the political, economic, and cultural life of the nation.

    To not create, to not participate is thus a crime, for to not do these things is to remove an essential part of our Republic - you, citizens, for you form it - and thus weaken it. The Republic is the expression of the emotion and energy of every single citizen of our Istkalen; it is the sole true expression, in fact, of the nation as a whole. Surely, surely, we cannot weaken our voice.

    Nor can participation occur outside of the Republic. The Republic is the instrument of national expression, a single beautiful melody; for any part of that expression, made up of all our citizens, to stray and to play in a cacophonous way would ruin the melody, would render it horrid. This cannot be tolerated. We all, through the mechanisms of the Republic, the state occupational unions, the cultural organizations, the chambers - shape its melody to perfection. Anyone who goes outside of these ruins it, ruins everything, for everyone.

    Do we want such people to remain and to ruin everything? No, certainly not. They must be helped back into the Republic; and if they continue to refuse, then they simply must be excluded.

    We must all, as such, strive - strive, in remembrance of the principles of our state - of unity, work, and nation - through the organs of state in the construction of the nation and the maintenance of its flowing life, so that we may keep it the beautiful and singular expression of our people, of the citizens, that it is and absolutely must be.

    Regarding the Absence of Our Head of State

    Our Head of State Ilest Kerel decided to resign last night, amid pressure from the National Assembly and Council of Ministers. The Council of Ministers thus assumes his powers as a single body.

    On the behalf of the Council of Ministers, and of the people,
    Liros Ikomar
    Premier of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Istkalen


  • EU

    From the Council of Ministers

    The National Assembly, the Council of Ministers, and the elders of the state occupational unions, cultural organizations, and the political organizations, have relocated to the state redoubt, fearing for their own safety.

    Premier of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Istkalen


  • EU

    From the National Assembly

    The National Assembly, voting 358 - 342, has confirmed the present government; at the same time, it has elected Liros Ikomar to the position of Head of State.


  • EU

    From the Council of Ministers

    Head of State Ilest Kerel of Istkalen has handed his power to the Republic of Istkalen. It thus is now truly the sole legal government in Istkalen, deriving its legitimacy not simply from the old Istkalen but as far back as the first Empire, and the first Emperor, to rule in a united Istkalen, a lineage lasting over two millenia.

    Regarding the Nofoagan Sanctions

    We are disappointed in the decision of the Republic of Nofoaga to adopt sanctions against our Republic, arguing that we have eroded the democratic values of the Union. Presently, the Republic of Istkalen is in a state of transition, away from autocracy and towards what is likely to be its first true democracy. Our predecessors made a number of terrible mistakes, terrible actions; but we have sworn not to follow in their steps, and rather to take a new path towards a bright and stable future.

    We do however, understand why the Republic of Nofoaga has made this decision, and will make every attempt to reverse what our predecessors have done and to rectify the general behavior of our nation.

    Liros Ikomar
    Head of State of the Republic of Istkalen
