In a continuation of political trends, Aurlands recent council election has seen even greater support for the nations opposition Conservative party. While this support remains insufficient for the party to form government, critics have expressed concern that the party with the most votes, remains the most marginalized group.

The full breakdown of votes cast:
-Conservative [43.4%]
-Liberal [31.6%]
-Social Democrats [12.9%]
-Green [12.1%]

According to the nations electoral system, councilors have been distributed as follows:
-Conservative [35]
-Liberal [28]
-Social Democrats [19]
-Green [18]

Aurland has a unique political system that allocates council seats on a dual electoral based system. Half of all seats (50) are allocated equally to all parties that receive at least 10% of the electoral vote. The remaining half (50) seats are allocated proportionally based on the number of votes cast.
This is how the Conservative party receives only 35 seats, despite receiving more than 43% of the votes cast.
50/4 = 13 fairly distributed seats || and || 50 * 43.4% = 22 proportionally assigned seats

These election results have ensured that the governing coalition between the leading Liberals, Social Democrats, and Green parties will continue. Collectively, these parties received 56.6% of the electorates vote, but have received 65 of the 100 seats in council.

Aurlands King has stated that these electoral results have proven that there remain several social issues that are of concern to the population, including environmental protection and access to equitable social supports. King Shenat has called on the Liberals to formalize coalition talks and to formulate an effective response to the concerns of these voters.

Defeated Conservative Leader Maxwell Lorde has claimed that these election results show that the nations democracy is a sham, and insists that the strong support his party received should correspond to an election victory.




Huey Tlatoani empfängt Gesandtschaft aus Aurland

Der große Sprecher empfing König Shenat aus Aurland in Tenoch City, in der Halle der Ahnen.
Zur Begrüßung gab es eine Führung durch die altehrwürdige Stadt des Anfangs, Tenoch City, die erste Stadt der alten Youtopen. König Shenat war offen und sehr wissbegierig über die Kultur und Gebräuche unserer ehrenvollen Nation. Mit den drei kulinarischen Grundpfeiler des alten Youtopia, Mais, Kakao und Hunde, brachte man dem König der erfolgreichen Industrienation unsere Kultur näher sowie unsere erfolgreiche Brücke zwischen Kultur und Moderne. Maisbier, Kakao-Schnaps und ECHTE Hot Dogs diente somit als Basis für einen erfolgreichen Handelsvertrag.

Dieser wurde an der traditionellen Festtafel in der Halle der Ahnen geschlossen. Zu Ehren unserer Vorfahren wurde ein Fest abgehalten, bei dem König Shenat die größte Ehre unseres Landes erbracht wurde. Zum Höhepunkt des 23. Gänge Menüs, das startete mit gegrillten Meerschweinchen und von Maiskuchen getoppt wurde, gab es die größte Delikatesse Youtopias: Menschenfleisch. Wohlschmeckend, Nahrhaft und in unserer Religion die größte Ehre, die sonst nur Göttern zuteil wird.

Ein junger Priester des Huitzi, unserem Kriegs- und obersten Gott, opferte sich selbst freiwillig zu Ehren des Gottes um für einen überaus erfolgreichen Abschluss der Verhandlungen zu bitten. Wir danken diesem Blumenopfer sehr!

Dank ihm, dank den Göttern, konnte eine überaus fruchtbare Bande zwischen Youtopia und Aurland geschlossen werden!

Geprießen seien die Götter!

Huey Tlatoani receives embassies from abroad

The great speaker received King Shenat from Aurland in Tenoch City, in the Hall of the Ancients.
To welcome you there was a tour of the ancient city of the beginning, Tenoch City, the first city of the old Youtopen. King Shenat was open and very inquisitive about the culture and customs of our honorable nation. With the three culinary foundations of ancient Youtopia, corn, cocoa and dogs, we brought the king of this successful industrial nation closer to our culture as well as our successful bridge between culture and modernity. Maize beer, cocoa liquor and real hot dogs served as the basis for a successful trade agreement.

This was closed at the traditional banquet table in the Hall of the Ancestors. In honor of our ancestors, a festival was held to give King Shenat the greatest honor of our country. The culmination of the 23rd course menu, which started with grilled guinea pigs and was topped with corncakes, featured Youtopia's biggest delicacy: human flesh. Tasty, nutritious and in our religion the greatest honor that is otherwise only gods.

A young priest of the Huitzi, our war and supreme god, sacrificed himself voluntarily in honor of God to ask for a most successful conclusion of the negotiations. We thank this flower offering very much!

Thanks to him, thanks to the gods, a very fruitful bond between Youtopia and Aurland could be closed!

Spush be the gods!

Hakhāmanish greets his followers on social media
The world has been shocked by mysterious fires burning down parliament buildings in many nations around the world, including Aurland.

While no evidence has been found to link the fires, many are suspicious that so many democratic buildings would burn down within days of each other.

Many conspiracy theories have been suggested, but few seem plausible.

Office of the Trade Viceroy

People of Neimoidia, subjects of the Trade Federation I call upon you to help me succeed in our quest for glory. Neimoidia is currently the singular territory entity of the Trade Federation our country is vast our country has great potential but our country also has limitations. In order to become a truly successful people we must expand our scope as far as possible on our home continent.

While we are currently engaged with several territorial disputes with our neighbors this should not effect our trade with these regions. This why I am supporting the establishment of economic zones of control on South America. In these zones of control the Trade Federation will seek mutually preferential trade arrangements to ensure the performance of our companies in these regions ensures maximum profit.

On the home front we must focus every effort of every citizen on ensuring our strategic goal of becoming the worlds most powerful economic entity. This is why I am establishing the Office of the Trade Auditor to help quash the rampant corruption within our nation and company. All citizens should be empowered to report ALL instances of corrupt behavior, this new office will have the full legal and financial resources needed to tackle this great issue.

Only through a multi-pronged approach of attacking corruption can the deep modernization programs designed to facilitate the Great Leap Forward can even Hope to be successful! I swear to you as your Viceroy I will not fail you and that I will lead Neimoidia to greatness!
