18 Jul 12 UTC Spring, 1901: GameMaster: Rafa was banned: multi. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!

1. In the forward-thinking Austrian province of reddit, 15483 comments and over 20,000 votes (at the time of writing) have been left on a page discussing the best examples of people cheating the system. Currently first in the poll is a man who spends his time changing the "date modified" entry on various files at his workplace. He does this for the sole purpose of tricking his boss into thinking work was performed, when it clearly was not. An Austrian judge was overheard muttering the phrase, "He's so guilty!" into a teacup full of beer.

2. 86% of Austrians believe that 'reading about legal stuff' is an excellent way to start a party. A recent review of Judge Scalia's new book unseated the acclaimed "Equitable Leases: Volume XXIIII.

3. A man today was today waterboarded by government officials, after he pled guilty to 'dropping litter while aroused'. In the past year, DLWA offences have rocketed from zero to one - a gazillion percent increase.

4. Austrian children today celebrated the birth of the great Leader. Strictly speaking, his birthday is next week, but you know what children are like.
22 Jul 12 UTC Spring, 1902: Sorry about last turn. Won't happen again.
26 Jul 12 UTC Spring, 1904: The Austrian Herald:

1. On Tuesday we celebrated the birth of our great and merciful Leader. The entire nation took a break from distributing narcotics to our Turkish and Russian clients, and sat down to watch The Dark Night Rises. While the Austrian nation tried to wrap it's head around the 'interesting' plot, the Turks and Russians appear to have decided to steal what they can in no way afford to buy. The entire Austrian nations says, in one voice: Bring it on you crack-addled ********!

2. The people of Russia took to the streets to protest about the short-sighted tactics being used by their leader. One toothless grandmother proclaimed he disapproval by screaming "The Turks are pissing on our back while telling us it's raining" before promptly setting herself on fire. All six turnips - which comprised the entirety of her estate - were left to assist the French fleet in their inevitable triumph of the 'Yellow plague'. If only the rest of her comrades were so brave and forward-thinking.

3. The Great Leader recently began watching Breaking Bad. It is unknown where he found the time to watch most of Season 1 in a single evening, but there you go...that's why he's Great. If you're wondering how the Great Leader manages to watch a show made over century from now, you are beginning to understand the Great Leader's greatness.
26 Jul 12 UTC Spring, 1904: In further News.....Certainly the Great One has shown near mythical qualities and if omnipotent as he appears.... why did he allow the making of sitcoms in the 70's like Three's company and the Facts of Life. Surely this could explain how he could be wrong and why a bus load of laderhosen wearing polka dancers with accordians stormed the peace loving Rumainian Legislature and sparked a retaliation. As to the poor delusional bag lady smoldering in the corner, DNA testing has proven conclusively that she does indeed carry the Great Leader gene...Which leads us to believe she is.... Yo Mama! Hmmm, those roasted turnips sure were good.
27 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: In the news.... The Russian Bear seems to have contracted a case of western mange. Huge clumps of territory are falling off. extinction is imminent.
27 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: sorry but i can't help u at the moment...
27 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: When will the world realize that france has got the world by the baguette. If only the austrian pretzel twisters had not mounted an occupy rumania campaign widt all de schlapen und yodellin. Gawd, the noise
02 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Back into the bunker
03 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1907: France!!!! Hurry up! I am cowering behind this crumpled shield. Both aus and tur are taking turns
11 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1909: The Austrian Herald:

The Great Leader spent the evening flirting with the Russian first lady. Sources close to the Great Leader were 'silenced' by the secret police. The official press release states that "the Great Leader is currently two-thirds of the way through the futuristic pugilism talking picture, 'Cinderella Man'. He considers it to be an excellent film, and brilliant way to relax following an evening spent deep in the Russian first lady, and her daughter."
