  1. Following intense backlash against the project, Austrian Police forces have been given authorization to forcibly shut down the project. Having raided the labs where the research was going on, they found that this "Animo project" had gone much further than just attempting to combine Austrian and Akaatan DNA. Inside, they found what appeared to be human embryos, but they were different than usual, having some similarities with the recently arrived Akaata. However, this was not the worst of it. Recently, it was discovered that some of the recent kidnappings in Vienna were preformed under the orders of a group of scientists working with the Animo project. These scientists have been arrested, thankfully, and more arrests are expected to occur within the next few days. Emperor Johan has ordered for all labs working on the Animo project to be shut down following the reports of kidnapping taking place, and any person found working with these scientists are to be arrested on sight. That is all.
  2. In the years following first contact with the Akaata, efforts have been made by some private organizations to begin the next step in Human evolution. However, up until recently, such ideas had no proper backing. Only in the past year has such an idea gotten off the ground, with prominent scientists supporting the ideas behind it, even if some of their reasons are unknown. Due to this, Project Animo has been created by various scientists across the nation in the hopes of creating a new race of Humans that share similarities with their new Akaatan allies. Currently, the project hopes to see if parts of Akaatan DNA can be added to Human DNA through genetic modifications, however, this has not prevented some within the Scientific Community from coming up with a name for the new race, which is currently being called HomoCogitare". With hope, this project will proceed only in the goal of helping humanity, not replacing it. It is expected that the first of this race could be born within the next fifteen years.

  4. In the days that followed first contact with the race known as the "Akaata", much of the details surrounding the race were kept hidden to prevent any form of panic among the populace of the Empire. However, as the date of the meeting approached, it became necessary to give information on the visitors so that... attacks wouldn't be made. In this pursuit, an information dump was released to the public, information that contained what little the government understood of Akaatan culture, mannerisms, and their appearance. Alongside this, posters such as the following began to appear across the nation in the case that an Austrian citizen were to come into contact with one of these "Akaatans": http://www.joeydevilla.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/alien-contact-poster.jpg During the meetings, a curfew would be in place so as to prevent any unnecessary contact with the Akaatans, simply in the hopes that no one would cause an interstellar war. At the same time, no one would be permitted within a five-block radius of the building where the meeting would occur, at least, no one without permission. In the end, it might seem that such measures were unnecessary, but safety is most important, especially in this situation. Vienna, Some time later As the hour drew closer to the arrival of the Akaata, anticipation increased in Vienna, with many people packing the streets in order to see the arrival of the Akaata. However, after a few hours, it seemed as if they would never arrive. Suddenly, as many began to leave, a bright light appeared above the city before suddenly disappearing, only for a large shuttle to land near one of the crowds. Upon landing, a ramp extended from the shuttle as Austrian soldiers ordered for the civilians who had gathered to watch to disperse. Once the ramp had extended from the shuttle, a group of men clad in black armor exited the vehicle carrying intricately designed metal pikes, followed by an entourage of diplomats, servants, and guards. As the group walked, they looked around the city, not in disgust (even if it did pale in comparison to many of their homes), but with fascination as to how complex many of the buildings were, especially in terms of technology. Eventually, they made it to a large building in the center of the city- the Imperial Palace. Outside, Emperor Johan and a group of diplomats and scientists were waiting in order to greet the visitors. One of the scientists, upon seeing the group, left the crowd, carrying a couple of devices in the hopes that they might help get past the language barrier. Upon reaching them, he motioned for one of the diplomats to take them, which they did. For a few moments, he attempted to calibrate the devices, eventually succeeding with it. With that taken care of, the group approached Emperor Johan, where one of the Akaatan diplomats would personally greet him. "Shre'ta, Imperata Johan. Imperata Sutta Jen Taral wiate lata verise en gatra hesh ne xehu.. (Greetings, Emperor Johan. Emperor Sutta Jen Taral wishes long life and good health upon you.)" the Akaatan ambassador said warmly. "Ival ere vrena exteyna te weratra xehu ne tre cipiar metrne. (I am very excited to work with you in the coming months.)" he added as he attempted to make the translator work properly. "Ival setra invraeta atne ne otren. (I suppose introductions are in order). Met nale ne Kal Jen Vre'sha, ambassatrena et nove worlen. (My name is Kal Jen Vre'sha, ambassador to new worlds.)" he said with a bow. "I, as the representative of our planet in this meeting, am pleased to welcome you to Vienna, great ones." Johan replied, slightly unnerved by the fact that they looked remarkably similar to Humanity. "Please, follow me." he said humbly. "Ival sentren thetre xehu atne une-vren be ota appeanatre, nia? (I sense that you are unnerved by our appearance, no?)" Ambassador Vre'sha asked as he followed. "Et ne undetrena, senala anea weval atne sinatreia ne menara wa'nea. (It is understandable, seeing as we are similar in many ways.)" he added as they walked. "Thea... Thea frema ne ona oa menara, chisana te prenasa xehu weratra confetrne fre tre contresa. (This... This form is one of many, chosen to provide you with comfort for the conference.)" he concluded before changing his form into that of the typical Akaatan, yet with ceremonial clothing. Upon reaching the room, they took their seats and began discussing the terms of the treaty over the course of the next twelve hours. Eventually, an agreement was reached, the terms of which will follow: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZOAXAAyoOeN7d-9JZkBesID69MOjS9XolXrNiLowsGI/edit?usp=sharing
  5. Many years ago, the Austrian Empire had a hegemoney in Central Europe, a hegemoney that in recent years has all but fallen apart. In order to prevent the collapse of the empire, several of these territories were temporarily abandoned in the hopes of improving the stability of the state. In this goal, the regions of Galicia-Lodomeria, Moldova, and Dalmatia were abandoned. This abandonment ends today. Recently, Austrian forces annexed parts of Poland, Italy, and the remainder of Croatia in the hopes of providing stability in the region. For the most part, the occupation was not contested by local security forces, which willingly joined the Austrian Empire. That's all. (Sorry about the short post)
  6. Somewhere in the Carpathians It was a quiet night in the area around the Gerlachovský Observatory was silent, as was usual. In the years since it was established, each night, scientists listened into the various different signals from deep space. So far, everything signal was normal, typically being nothing more than signals from dying starts or from deep space probes. However, this night was different. This night was the night they made contact. Inside the observatory, it was noted that there was a signal coming from somewhere in the outer solar system. From what was unknown at the time, but it did spark the interest of at least some of the scientists stationed at the facility. Over the course of the next two days, they monitored the exact location from which the message came from. At 17:00 Hours on October 1st, 2023, another message was received, this one much more important than the previous one. What follows is a portion of the transmission which has been translated: "Greetings to whomever this message concerns. My name is Kal Jen Vre'sha, Ambassador of the Akaatan Imperium to newly discovered planets. I come before you not as some unknown being, but as a friend. We have noted the development of your first fusion reactors and the repeated visits by other races to your world. As such, I wish to offer the protection and assistance of the Akaatan Imperium to one of the nations on your world in exchange for one thing: The creation of bases in the previously mentioned nation's territory. If you accept, then by all means, send a message through whatever means you can, and we will send a representative to your world to discuss the terms of the... agreement." the message said, even if some of it might have been a bit... off. Naturally, with the Austrian Empire wanting to get ahead in technology, would send a rushed message in response, welcoming them to visit the nation.

  8. March 30th, 2023 Good evening, my fellow citizens of the Austrian Empire. I come before you with much much sorrow. I regret to inform the general populace that at 5:37 PM on March 30th, the Imperial family informed us that Emperor Wilhelm I... is dead. He will be buried tomorrow at 11:00 AM in the Family Crypt in Vienna. In honor of our late emperor, we will list out several major events in his life. Born in 1925 to Emperor Johan IV von Habsburg and Empress Sophie Wolfe, Wilhelm spent his childhood as the heir to an Empire that had recently found it's self among the victors of the first world war. In 1943, he attended the University of Vienna, graduating four years later at the top of his class. In 1946, he married Lydia Ritter, the daughter of a minor german noble. In 1947, his father, Johan IV, died, thus making him the Emperor of Austria. Under his reign, he saw the loss of various territories that were either under the direct or indirect control of Austria, primarily through popular vote. In 1950, his son, Viktor, was born. It was believed that he would become the next emperor, but as time has shown, it was not to be. In 1980, Viktor's son, Johan, was born, making Emperor Wilhelm a grandfather. In 1995, Viktor decided to give up his claim to the throne, allowing his son to become the heir to the empire. Famously, in 2010, he stated his support for a Union of European states in the hopes of bettering the lives of others. In this goal, he set up the Kaiser Wilhelm foundation, which to this day collects funds for humanitarian aid projects across the world. Having ruled for 76 years, he is the longest reigning monarch in history. Now that the rundown of his life is over, we go live to his funeral procession. We will remain silent in order to respect his long rule. May he rest in peace...

  9. The Vienna Daily Issue One March 24th, 2023 Good Morning to whoever is reading/watching this issue of the Vienna Daily, the first of which will be issued to the public. In today's news, we have the recognition of the Italian populace within Südtirol, Slovenia, and Triest. In a shocking turn of events, the Austrian parliament voted to grant minority privileges to the Italian populace of these regions, with more of such votes likely to occur in the next few weeks. While currently, we can not accurately say what kind of effect this will have on the region, we can safely say that there will be less protests on such matters. Next, we have the creation of a new Nuclear Power Plant near the city of Maribor in Slovenia. Rising from the countryside near Maribor, the newly constructed Jalovec Nuclear Fission Power Plant is preparing for it's first activation, which will only be used to see if it will be a viable source of power for the region. While this has garnered some negative publicity from the more environmentally concerned citizens of the region, the Austrian government assures the local populace that it is completely safe for the environment and that there is only a 0.00009% chance that a major incident related to the reactor could occur. Now onto the final segment of this issue, we have a prediction for Orbis in the next ten years. Experts predict that in the next ten years, we could see sea levels rise as much as 46 centimeters (18 inches). Thanks to the rise in nationalism, we could also see the rise of a Polish and an Italian state within Europe, with the potential for new nations to rise in regions such as the Orient and the Americas. We could also see the expansion of other already existing nations, take Austria for instance. Austria would gain much from annexing regions such as Galicia and Veneto, as well as possibly Bavaria. We could also see nations such as the North German Confederation expanding further into Germany and the Benelux, while France might attempt to expand east into the Benelux, Switzerland, and Italy. Other nations, Rokkenjima for instance, will likely expand further as well, potentially taking over Japan, among other regions. Anyways, that's all for today's issue of the Vienna Daily.

  12. Official nation name: Austrian Empire Population: 48,090,750 GDP: 4.572 Trillion Marks Population density (sq. km): 15/km^2 Form of Government: Constitutional Monarchy Describe your Nation IC: The remains of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Austrian Empire is a nation in Central Europe that controls much of what was once the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Describe yourself in OOC terms: You should already know this... Please link your lore or other information that is canon: The Austrian Empire is the successor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and as such, controls much of it's former lands. As a multi-ethnic Empire, you would think that it wouldn't have lasted this long, but surprisingly, it did. In fact, in many ways, the Empire is more of a federation of the many peoples of Austria. The Emperor himself holds very little power over the nation, instead allowing it to be ruled by a Parliament. Have you read, and do you agree to abide by, the rules? (Yes/No): Yes (You must not have a history of continuous rule breaks in the national affairs subforum!) Where on the map do you want to be located? (Using real-world geography/nations, or a self-provided map): You are allowed 75 starting provinces Nation flag link (if you have a specific one you want to be used): https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/althistory/images/a/a7/Austrian_germany_by_1blomma-d4nr5us.jpg/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/640?cb=20120323234728
  13. In the years that followed the disappearance of the Akaata, much of their technology that was left behind had been confiscated. However, for what purpose this tech was confiscated is unknown to all save few, including King Wilhelm and some of the higher ups in both the Prussian Government and APEX Corp. Deep below ground, in one of the old APEX Corp facilities, a massive hollowed-out chamber could be seen. Inside, a massive structure of unknown type could be seen under construction. Clearly, it was neither completely native nor completely foreign, simply based upon it's design. However, it could be seen that in the chamber (as well as adjacent ones) that there was a large stockpile of old Akaatan weapons. With the rising tensions on Orbis, these weapons were quickly taken out of the facility and above ground to be issued to select units in the Prussian Armed Forces. However, the structure in the chamber remained dormant, or at least, it seemed like it was. Overlooking the chamber, an platform could be seen. Inside were several of the main leaders of the Prussian Armed Forces and APEX Corp lead scientists.One of the scientists approached a screen and began working on it, hoping to activate it. "Okay... It should be connected to every city in Prussia... Time to activate it..." He would say. "Contingency Alpha activation code 77932-18916-11435." he would say into a microphone. Suddenly, the structure began to activate, a red glow emanating from it's core. "Well, it should be active now... At least it will make law enforcement a bit easier, no?" he would remark. "If by easier, you mean turning us into essentially a police state?" One of the military officers said. "No, no. It won't make us into a police state... hopefully. It will simply provide all units with a central database so that they can prevent crimes before they ever happen, not to mention provide us a secondary police force." The scientist would say as he walked back to the group, which would walk out of the chamber. Somewhere in Prussia Across Prussia, an unfamiliar voice could be heard saying "Attention, please. All autonomous units, mandate compliance with Contingency Plan Alpha-3. Submit and be subsumed." it said, it's voice echoing across the various cities. "New units being deployed in sectors three, five, and nine. All available units are to report to Hamburg in order to assist in cleanup operations." it would add. Many people would ask what was going on, but the government remained silent on this matter...
  14. Greetings to all who read/hear this message. I am Wilhelm von Hohenzollern, King of Prussia, and I wish to let you know that, well, we exist. Prussia, which is a name you have most likely heard from your history classes, is back. As one of the newer nations on this planet, we understand that we are in no position to make any demands to any of the other, greater nations on this planet, but we do hope for cooperation with the rest of the nations on Orbis. Thank you for your time, and may all of our nations prosper.
  15. Edit: Nation's actual name is New Prussia, but I would prefer is you just put it as Prussia. Thanks Edit 2: Please use this flag instead of the one I supplied:
